East Quad residents
left in the dark
By BELINDA PETT
A planned blackout of East
Quad and several other
University buildings Sunday
night lasted five hours longer
than scheduled, and residents of
East Quad say they missed
classes and worried for their
safety because of the error.
Central Power Plant Turbin
Operator George Gooch said the
power was cut in order to set taps
on the transformer of a 13,200-volt
feeder to the Southeast Switching
GOOCH said the blackout
included East Quad, the Law
Quad, Martha Cook Residence
Hall, Tappan Hall, the School of
Education Building, the Business
Administraton Building, the East
Engineering Building, the
Church Street and Hill Street
parking structures, the C.C. Little
Building, the Pharmacy, the
Physics and Astronomy
Building, and the Old
Architecture and Design
Many residents were upset by
the blackout and its unexpected
six and a half hour duration. "I
think it was ludicrous to do it at
night, especially with classes the
next day," said Residential
College sophomore Kasha
"Darkness renders people
powerless, specifically women. It
was impossible and terrifying to
go to the bathroom or walk down
the hall," Fluegge added.
ALSO CONCERNED about
personal safety was Residential
College junior Jacki Bricker.
"The halls were so dark, I felt
unsafe to walk to my room," she
Residents were also angered
by the inaccurate informatio,
that they received concerning the
length of the blackout. "I wish I
had known how late it would stay
off, because I would have asked
someone to call me at 8 o'clock
and wake me up," said LSA
freshman Jeff Kaplan, who slept
through an early-morning class.
The blackout also angered
many East Quad staff members.
"I feel that everyone on the staff
was strongly against the whole
idea of a blackout," East Quad
Resident Director Micky Feusse

According to freshman Mark Lipson, it's the
Michigan football team, which returns to
Michigan Stadium next Saturday for the first
time this year. The Wolverines will host the
Oregon State University Beavers at 1 p.m.
"GOING TO football games is like a social
event," said engineering sophomore Susan
Hansen. "Everybody gets into it- standing,

credits "tradition" for the high spirits at football
games. "We've had a good football team since
1900. Games are a part of University life.
"People can forget studies and forget
problems and stand behind the home team,"
Perry said. "It's one unifying thing on any
"I'VE HEARD(games) are a great thrill,"
said LSA freshman Terry Wheat, who has
never been to a Michigan football game. "I've
heard that's what school is all about."
Engineering senior Andy Crook, a resident
adviser at Mary Markley dormitory, said he
has attended more than 20 games. On any given
football Saturday, he has seen "people from
miles around going to the games. "
"There's always a tremendous amount of
activity building around the game," Crook said.
"Guys go in packs of five to 15 together. There
are a lot of individual activities, such as
playing Bob Ufer (the late Michigan football
broadcaster), and the Victors song at full blast
on the stereo."
IN "THE WAVE," a tradition allegedly
started at Michigan Stadium, cheering fans
stand up, wave, and sit down, one section at a
Crook said he was impressed with the
"psychology of the crowd" during the wave.
"One game, the wave distracted the players.
People would start 'shh' waves and 'quiet'
Severance enjoys "the Bullwinkle," when
fans direct Bullwinkle noises and gestures at
the opposing side, and when "people boo refs so
bad when they make a bad call."

before they would be welcome at
the peace table.
If the Soviets want any place in
Middle East peace efforts, the
secretary said, "they ought to
establish diplomatic relations
with all the parties. Of course, I'm
thinking about Israel."
RELATIONS were broken in
1967, when Egypt and Syria, both
of which were armed largely by
the Soviet Union, were defeated in
