Le Dog is gourmet
chef's pet project
By TIM DALY
Appellate Court Judge Antonin
Scalia, a prospective Supreme Court
appointee, yesterday criticized the in-
creasing use of legislative statutes in
Supreme Court decisions.
"Judges who rely on legislative
statutes to make decisions assume
there is congressional intent in each
statute," said Scalia, who addressed
a crowd of 100 people in Hutchins
HALL. "However, the majority of
congressmen are blissfully unaware
of the details of each statute," he ad-
SCALIA said bills passed by
congressional committees often do
not represent the views of the full
Congress. "Committee members
usually don't have middle-of-the-road
views, yet the bill they produce is of-
ten passed by the full Congress." he
Decisions should be based more on
judicial interpretation of statutes than
on legislative history, Scalia said.
"By relying on statutes, judges are
taking the easy way out."
Nonetheless, Scalia said, legislative
history should not be abandoned.
"Judges should be more selective in
the type of legislative history they
use. For example, extended floor
debate should be evaluated instead of
"COMMITTEE reports are
prepared by staff instead of the
memers. They should be the last thing
judges look at, not the first," Scalia
Scalia is known for authoring the
opinion that struck down a provision
of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings
budget reduction law. The opinion
stated that it was unconstitutional for
the Congressional Budget Office
(CBO) to administer the law which is
now overseen by the Office of
Management and Budget.
Scalia is considered one of three
leading candidates for the next
Supreme Court appointment. "Scalia
is well-respected and has a good
chance of being nominated for a seat
if President Reagan gets to select the
next justice," said Georgie Fishman,
vice president of the Michigan
Federalist Society, a group of law

working at The Bakery as a dish-
washer," the chef says.
"I returned two year later as the
manager of the $1.5 million-a-year
revenue-producing restaurant," Van
Dyck-Dobos says. In between those
two years, "I guess you could say I
worked my way through an appren-
"You have to go through and pay
your dues. In my case, it was dish-
washing, busboying, prep cooking,
waitering, being a captain, a whole
VAN DYCK-DOBOS believes these
"apprenticeship" years are
necessary for a person's education as
a chef. "Cooking is not only an art,
but a science," he says. "You must
understand the underlying basic prin-
ciples before you can call yourself a
chef," he says.
"I've had people apply for positions
who called themselves chefs, but it
later turned out they only flipped
hamburgers at McDonald's of Wen-
dy's," he says.
Although an educated and intelligent
man, Van Dyck-Dobos says he never
got frustrated during those "appren-
ticeship" years. "I don't think in-
telligence has anything to do with
what you like doing," he says.
THE CHEF does recall one
frightening episode, when he was
dessert cook at the Bakery. "One of
my most interesting experiences was
to have the executive chef run after
me with a 13-inch knife and chase me
five times around the table."
"I guess that was a little
frustrating," he says.
"He didn't like the way I was preparing"
the poached pear in chantilly sauce,
Van Dyck-Dobos recalls. "I don't
remember the details exactly, but I'm
sure I was doing something wrong."
"THANK GOD he was slower than I
was," he says, smiling. Although
frightened by the episode, Van Dyck-
Dobos understands the executive
chef's behavior. "Chefs are very
tempermental, I'm very tempermen-
tal myself." he says. "My wife won't
work for me in the kitchen, not even at
home. I won't let her in the kitchen. I
do all the cooking at home."
Van Dyck-Dobos says working at Le
Dog has other advantages over
working at The Bakery. "In Chicago, I
used to work from 9 in the morning to
3 the next morning. Here I work 9
(a.m.) to 3 (p.m.)," he says.
Le Dog is open from 11 a.m. to 2
p.m. Monday through Friday, but Van
Dyck-Dobos says he spends the extra
hours preparing the specials. "It
takes quite a long time to do roayt
duck or lobster bisque, or to cut out 40
ponds of fresh strawberries
everyday." for the shakes, he says.
SELLING HOT dogs is the way Van
Dyck-Dobos manages to keep such
short hours and to make up for the
money he loses on the specials. The
prices of the specials, he proudly
maintains, never exceed $3.95.
"I don't want to sit here for 12 hours
a day selling gourmet food to 50
people. We serve about 200 a day.
Fifty of them are going to be our
specials. And 150 of them are going to
be hot dogs. Now you know why I do
hot dogs," he says.
When Le Dog closes down in
January and February, Van Dyck-
Dobos leaves Ann Arbor to search for
new additions to his menu. "Every
January, I go looking for new recipes
from the four corners of the earth: I
just got back from Germany, Fran-
ce." "he says.
"Last year, we were down in St.
Thomas in the Virgin Islands looking
for native recipes," he says. "We
brought back some...bouillabaisse
'(fish stew) recipes."
"We (my wife and I) don't have any
children so we can go off to various
places of the world."
When Le Dog is open, the chef spen-
ds around 50 hours a week working
both at the stand and on the Le Dog
catering service. "I enjoy what I'm
doing extremely. I don't think there is
ever a morning when I don't enjoy
coming to work. And not too many
people can say that," he says.
"Every day we have so many
customers we know already. They
greet me by name. I know them, quite
a few by name," Van Dyck-Dobos
says. "I know exactly how they like
things. I know whether one likes to
have their bouillabaisse spicier than
the other. We cook for individual:
customers. We don't cook for the
mass of people."

The recent surge in international
terrorism will hinder travel plans
abroad in the upcoming months, say
local travel agents and University
students and professors.
In the wake of last week's explosion
aboard a TWA jet that killed four
Americans on a flight from Rome to
Athens, Dan Smith, manager of con-
sumer affairs for the International
Air Lines Passenger Association, said
his group was advising Americans not
to travel in the Mediterranean area
unless it is necessary.
THE BOMBING was the latest in a
string of terrorist acts that travel
agents fear will intimidate inter-
national travelers. The fear of
terrorism combined with the
weakening U.S. dollar has taken a
considerable toll on overseas travel
plans, according to Patricia
Morrisey, manager of Great Places
Travel in the Union.
Morrisey said that although
travelers traditionally finalize their
plans around this time of year, reser-
vations are down significantly from
Greece, Italy, Egypt, and Israel are
especially worried about their
tourism industries. In Egypt, where
tourism is the fourth-largest industry,
officials expect to lose at least half of
their tourism revenue this year. By
February, tourism in Israel had
reached only 41 percent of last year's
TO OFFSET losses, some airlines
are offering reduced fares to attract
more passengers, Morrisey said. Pan
American Airlines, for example, cut
$150 off fares for flights to the
Mediterranean area. Morrisey said
such discounts are "unheard of"
during the peak tourist season.
Steve Goldberg, a University
business student, plans to change his
airplane reservations, which have
him passing through Athens airport.
Goldberg said he wants to avoid
Athens because it has been a "hot
spot" for terrorist attacks.
"Chances are nothing is going to
happen, but I don't plan to wear an
American flag," he said.
SEVERAL OTHER students have
cancelled their travel plans
altogether. Sarah Sasson, an LSA
senior who planned to travel in Italy,
England, and France, said her
mother has forbidden her to travel
near the Mediterranean this summer.
LSA senior Kim Martins said she is
considering cancelling her plans to
study in Florence this summer. "I
won't go as spur of the moment as I
would have otherwise," she said.
"I'm worried about going into really
At the same time, Martins says she
does not want terrorism to keep her
from living a normal life. "I tend to
believe it will never be me. The
situation is very undependable, but at
the same time I can't not go out of the
house in the morning," she said.
MICHAEL ZEGEV, an LSA senior,
plans to visit Europe this summer
despite his concern about terrorist at-
tacks. "I will not allow my travel to be
dictated by terrorist attacks. If I were
to submit to that, it would just prove
that terrorism is working," he said.
"You can't avoid problems; there is
always a risk in life," Zegev said.
"But things are worse - it's getting at
the point that the risk might outweigh
LSA senior James Aronovitz says
he will not cancel his plans to see
England, Amsterdam, Switzerland,
Italy, and Paris this summer,
although he admits that fears of
terrorists have caused him to have
nightmares during the past few
nights. "I'm not going to tell people
I'm American and I plan to get in and
out of train stations as quickly as
possible," he said. Once he gets to
Europe, he added, he will travel by
trains rather than airplanes.

University President Harold Shapiro,
who served on the commencement
Short also said that University
security officers will be stationed at
Michigan Stadium - or Crisler Arena
in case of rain - to confiscate any
alcoholic or carbonated beverages.
He could not be reached for further
comment last night.
ERIC SCHNAUFER, an MSA
representative from the Law School,
disapproved of the administration's
commencement changes. "MSA did
not think increased security was the
answer to the alleged problem. The
problem was the speaker, not the
crowd," he said.
Schnaufer said the choice of Blan-
chard last year was a "political ploy"
by the University to get more money
from the state.
He was unimpressed by this year's
choice, and decried what he called the
lack of student participation in the
selection process. "People don't know
who he is; they don't care who he is,"
S hnaufer said.
Schnaufer doubted whether the new
drinking policies would prove effec-
tive. Students "are just going to have
a good time. They'll be drinking and
playing frisbee; I don't think they'll
be attentive," he predicted.
