Cramming for exams inevitably
becomes a part of every student's
study habits, and late-night munchies
and a caffeine fix are indispensable
for those all-nighters.
Once in to the dorm, stocking up on
food is a top priority. Because dorm
cafeterias aren't open for late-night
snacking and one can only take so
much of the candy machines, stocking
up is advisable.
Blue Front and Campus Corner on
State Street and Packard Road. carry
just about everything on the average
student's shopping list. They're near
South and West Quads and are a
popular place to stop for a Coke on the
way to a football game.
WHITE Market on East William
has a small-town atmosphere. It has
all the name brands without 101
aisles, and its proximity to Angell Hall
makes it a campus favorite.
Stop-n-Go, open 24 hours, is the
place to go for the late-night food
runs. Conveniently located in the
same building as Taco Bell, Stop-n-Go
carries everything a midnight mun-
chaholic could crave.
And for those living on "Greek Row"
on Washtenaw, Village Corner and its
impressive selection of fine wines is
only a few minutes away on South
Krogering is a regular activity for
many University students. This
supermarket has some of the best
food buys available. Just hop in a car
or get a few friends together to share
a taxi, and shop a few miles down the
road at Kroger's.
For ready-made subs, ice cream,
deli meats and cheeses, or any other
quick foods, the Wolveirne Liquor and
Deli Shoppe on South Main is the place

Maybe the wide array of dorm specialties like minute
steaks and rubber pancakes does not whet your appetite.
If wheat cakes, tofu, and bean sprouts sounds better, the
People's Food Co-ops are the place to go when dinner is
unfit for human consumption.
With the 1980s fitness craze, the three People's Co-ops in
Ann Arbor are gaining a wider appeal and have increased
membership and shoppers since the 1960s. "The Co-op is
not a bunch of hippies off the deep end," said Paul Got-
tschalk, manager of the food co-op at 212 N. Fourth
"THERE ARE a wide range of people from all areas of
the community involved which meet the specific needs of
people," he said.
The food is in bulk barrels, tubs, and bins. Shoppers
measure and weigh the items themselves which cuts down
on consumer cost. "And the quality is better" than at
grocery stores, Gottschalk said.
ALTHOUGH THE co-ops specialize in fruits and
vegetables, both fresh and dried, natural flavored soda,
wheat, and tofu products, they also sell goodies like
Haagen Das ice-cream and yogurt.
A food co-op is a business owned and controlled by its
members who pay $10 to join, and operates soley for the
benefit of its members. Non-members may also shop at
the co-ops, but non-working members save five percent on
their purchases, while members who work four hours per
week at a food co-op get 15 percent off.
In addition to the food co-op on Fourth Avenue, there are
two others, one at 211 E. Ann Street, and one at 722

number of free checks per month to

Both checking accounts and the

The Fifth Ward has just recently
shifted to the Democratic side, as
popular incumbent Kathy Edgren
soundly defeated her Republican op-
ponent by more than 1,000 votes in last
April's election. University librarian
Doris Preston, another Democrat, is
the ward's other representative.
Although the council has ultimate
authority over major policy decisions,
the day-to-day operation of the city is
seen to by city administrator Godfrey
Collins and his assistants. The council
operates on a part-time basis.
Mayor Edward Pierce, 55, is a local
family doctor who has long been in-
volved in Ann Arbor and state politics.
Pierce, like most city Democrats,
feels that affordable housing is a key
Pierce said that due to the large
transient student population, Ann Ar-

tenants tend to be pushed out of the

power to lower housing costs," he

demands that the city encourage less

the Democrats with an "anti-

A classic example of the conflict oc-
curred several years ago when the
then-GOP city council approved a
million dollar tax abatement for
Warner-Lambert to attract the com-
pany to Ann Arbor. The Democrats
charged that the move "gave away

the tax abatement brought jobs to Ann

that the Democrats tend to be wary of

Peterson, a Democratic socialist,
has been one of the most ardent sup-

munity," he said. "Often projects that

For those who enjoy the nightlife,
campus bars offer employment for
students who are at least 18. Working
at a bar has the double advantage of
keeping days free for classes and
studying, and a little extra income
from the tips. The drawback is that
one may have to work until 2:30 a.m.
Restaurants can also provide quick
cash, but tips vary. Good tips depend
on the ability of the waiter or
waitress as well as the time of year
and the shift, Kelly said.
"HALF IS the individual and half is
the way they're scheduled," he said.
Freshmen have an added advan-

Student Employment Office,
suggested that students check with
various departments within the
university for job openings because
many departments do not post them.
"All departments hire students for
temporary work. To a great extent
they aren't posted so students have to
take the initiative," Hoey said.
The libraries on campus and the
dorm cafeterias also enploy students,
and are conveniently located.
