Comic books and th-th-that's not all
By MONICA WARDEN
Robin: "Holy superheros, Batman. I've never seen so
many comic books in all my life."
Batman: "My bat sensors agree with you, boy wonder. I
guess that's why they call this the King Kon Comic and
NO, THE MASKED marvels didn't really make an ap-
pearance at this weekend's extravaganza in Eastern
Michigan University's McKinney Union. In fact, they
probably didn't revvv up the Batmobile or even leave the
But if they weren't there in body, they were definitely
there in spirit, and in comic books.
Comic-crazed devotees waded through the stacks of vin-
tage Richie Rich, Spiderman, and Bugs Bunny. There was
nary a Time or Newsweek to be seen.
Who ever said comics were for kids? Most of the collec-
tors browsing through the books were college-aged an4;
up. They were actually there to do busines - buying,
trading, and selling magazines at prices that could put
some through college. Would you pay $60 for a Bugs Bun-
But comic collectors weren't the only ones having fun.
Dungeons and Dragons players picked up a few games.
Videos of those old Saturday matinee serials our parents
grew up with - Dr. Who and Dick Tracey - were shown
throughout the weekend. o
And it wasn't all superhero adventure. There were some
pretty serious discussions on topics such as "Shou1C
comics have high moral standards?"
Well, should they? Maybe the dynamic duo could
provide some insight on that question.

Gorillas "Dave" and, of course, "Dave" hang out in the Diag.
Ambitious apes make curious comeback
By MARY CHRIS JAKLEVIC
Dave and Dave the friendly
gorillas returned to campus Friday
to welcome students and faculty
back to school and to encounter
some celebrated University figures.
The Daves are part of an improm-
ptu trio of warm-hearted an-
thropoids who appeared on campus
twice last winter semester to lift the
spirits of everyone who crossed their
SADLY, though, the Daves retur-
ned minus their better third, Dave
the gorilla, who they said was in
Paris for the semester but would be
back to his usual antics with the
other Daves next term.
But Dave's absence was quickly
forgotten Friday afternoon, when
the other two Daves showed up on
At 2 p.m. the gregarious, gorillas,
emerged, prepared for the hot
weather in shorts, sneakers, and t-
shirts. But their furry heads and
hands were pure gorilla garb.
AS USUAL, they went ape, at-
tacking students with unreserved
gorilla greetings. They climbed
trees, told forgettable jokes, and
even sang Let's Go Blue.
After minglingon the Diag, the
Daves romped ove- to greet Jim, the
latest preacher to grace the Diag
green. Jim was lecturing to several
hundred students about the
sacrilege of homosexuality.
DAVE AND Dave's arrival on the
scene evoked cheers and applause
as the Daves shook hands and
saluted the members of the crowd.
who shouted, "Darwin! Darwin!"
Finally the playful primates ap-
proached Jim himself, but the over-
zealous intruders did not quite hit it
off with him. "That's what you get
for masturbation," Jim told the
crowd when offered Dave's fur-clad
But Dave and Dave were undaun-
ted by the put-down. "We're too
simple to have religion on our min-
ds. We're just interested in having a
good time," Dave said.
NEXT DAVE and Dave brought
their monkey business to Angell
Hall, where they descended upon an
Art History 101 lecture in
Auditorium A. They wer a bit disap-
pointed with the reaction of the
class, though. "The students were
too shocked. They were unwilling to
accept new ideas," Dave said.
The apes decided to go where they
would be better received. They
visited the LSA offices on the first
floor, where they were recognized
by workers who remembered them
from their visit last spring.
Monica Dillon, a clerk in the coun-
seling office, pulled out a cloth rose
from her desk drawer which the
apes had given her on their previous
visit. "They're nice guys," she said.
THE GORILLAS prowled from of-
fice to office, greeting old friends
with back massages and pawshakes.
The afternoon ended with a visit to
President Shapiro's office. Unfor-
tunately, the President was tied up
in a regent's meeting, and even the
Daves' charming monkeyshines
could not disarm the receptionist in
Dave and Dave are friendly with
everybody, but they pay special at-
tention to the women. Could they be
in it for the girls?
"SURE, WE'RE swinging
gorillas," Dave said.
"Girls like us because we're dif-
ferent," added Dave.
One female senior confirmed
Dave's assertion. "I think he's
really cute," she said. "I don't
usually like guys that hairy, though.
I'd like to know what he's doing
ASKED when they would return,
the Daves said, "We'll be back when
we feel the public really needs us,
when people seem down and tense."
Mystery still shrouds the origin of
this new species of campus creature.
The Daves are fearful of revealing
too much about themselves, but did
admit they are LSA juniors, and also
the only gorillas not in captivity in
What about their long term
WHILE DAVE wants to be a
physician and a rock star, Dave said
he is interested in politics and law.
and thinks the words "Senator
Dave the Gorilla" have quite a ring
They said the third Dave is in-
terested in screen writing.
For now the Daves are content to
run a successful campaign against
melancholia on campus. "We know
we have a lot of fans," Dave said.
"We want to start a Dave the Gorilla
fan club, and we will be producing t-
shirts." Can Dave the Gorilla lunch
boxes be far behind?
BERN, Switzerland (AP) - Swiss
voters yesterday approved a new
marriage law to replace 78-year-old
legislation that the government
described as "incompatible with
female dignity" because it gave the,
husband sweeping legal power over
Official returns from Switzerland's
26 cantons showed 921,593 voters, or
54.7 percent, approved the law and
762,962, or 45.3 percent, opposed it.
About 40 percent of Switzerland's
nearly 3 million voters cast ballots.
Sunday's approval came 14 years
after Switzerland became the last
Western democracy to grant women
the right to vote and four years after

The old marriage law made the
husband the legal "head of the
family" with the wife automatically
losing her surname upon marriage,
allowed the husband to prevent his
wife from working, and gave him the
right to manage his wife's pre-
marriage savings and whatever she
To replace it, a package of
measures stressing "partnership in
marriage" was approved by
Parliament in 1984. It dropped
references to the husband as head of

the family, decision-maker and finan-
cial manager. r1

wife to "harmonious cooperation."
Spouses are to agree between ther-
selves how to divide financial and
other responsibilities. l;j
It also obliges each partner to given

property, and debts. Children still are
required to take the father's surname,,
but the wife may put her maidenri

Julian Byrd, a department director
who served on the committee that
selected Dalston, said that the Texas
hospital is hoping Dalston can make
significant improvements in its public
relations and its ties with the Univer-
sity of Texas Medical Center.
Dalston was one of four hospital
administrators chosen by the Texas
hospitals to be interviewed for the
position of chief executive officer, and
their first choice to take the job after
the interviews were completed in
"His tremendous record attracted
us to him initially, but when he was
here for the interviews, his ability to
relate to everyone on the committee
was very important," said Byrd.

Byrd said the committee did not

Dalston was offered the position
several weeks ago, but final
negotiations were not completed unti
