Incoming students who fail to respond to a University letter
asking them to send proof of vaccination against two types of
measles will receive a hold credit and be denied permission to
egister for classes, University Health Services officials said
The new policy comes in response to pressure from the
National Center for Disease Control and state and local health
departments that hope to avoid outbreaks of the disease on
college campuses, said Judith Daniels, assistant director of
clinic operations and program development.
IN THE past three years, outbreaks of measles have prom-
pted Health Services to coordinate voluntary vaccination
clinics set up at various locations around campus. But because
few students took advantage of this service, the University's
Board of Regents decided over the summer to make the im-
munizations mandatory to guard against measles epidemics,
Daniels said.
About 10,000 incoming freshmen, transfers, and graduate
students were sent letters in late July informing them of the
new requirement, but so far only 3,000 have sent their records
to Health Services, said Daniels. University records for Sep-
tember show that about 7,000 students still need to respond by

"THOSE people may have a false sense of security," said

college-age adults."

But some students say they are opposed to the use of hold

"They should go about it in a different way."

A Couzens Hall building director told
about 300 residents packed into the
dorm cafeteria late last night that, "If
there's a keg in the dorm, it will be
confiscated by security."
The problem with kegs is that,"you
have to drink them down or they'll go
flat," said Jerrell Jackson, explaining
why he is instructing residence staff
in his building to crack down on keg

Jackson declined to specify what
penalties would be doled out to those
found in violation of the dorm's
alcohol plolicy. He said he felt uneasy

about giving students information
about penalties in case the rules
change in the next two weeks.
Jackson added that the punishment
would probably depend on the
situation, with such factors as student
cooperation, the number of people in-
volved, and the destruction of dorm
property involved taken into con-
COUZENS residents reacted with
anger to Jackson's news. "It's just not
fair that we're the only dorm on cam-

on," said engineering sophomore

Selecting a sorority isn't all simple talk
Rushing a sorority may seem like a light-hearted af-

young women and chat about majors and hometowns -

After saying hello, that person will introduce the new
arrivals to a predetermined sorority member who then
will escort her charges to a specific room of the just-
cleaned house. After three or four minutes of conver-
sation, she will rotate the rushees to another member for
more introductions.
Just about every house has mapped out the process,
and many have even held dry runs to insure it moves
"YOU GET PAIRED up and circulated in rush," ad-
mitted Carol Muth, an LSA senior who belongs to Alpha
Chi Omega. "There's no way you can get around the
small talk. Everyone talks about the same things."
But the trick to spicing up the conversation - and of-
ten to winning an offer of membership - is to rise above
the chitchat.
"The key is to be interested and interesting," she said.
"Those people who get past the small talk are the ones

Tom Monaghan, owner of the

board of Domino's Pizza, jokingly told
a crowd of 200 students last night that
he really owes his success to
"I broke every rule in the book," the
pizza king during a speech spon-
sored by the University Christian
Outreach and held in the Natural
Science Auditorium. "The only thing I
knew was that I liked pizza."
MONAGHAN said he drifted from a
one-year stint in a seminary to the
Marine Corps. When he returned in
1960, he decided to enroll in the

University's architecture school, but
was short on cash. To raise money for
tuition, Monaghan joined his brother
in purchasing the Dominick's pizza
store in Ypsilanti for $500 in 1960.
He enrolled in the University twice,
but had to drop out both times because
of financial problems. He went to
work at the pizza store, which he said
later "became the busiest store in the
