Jazz for Life
for poor kids
By LAURA STERN
This week is a busy one for Jazz
For Life, a non-profit organization
dedicated to aiding poor children.
The group is sponsoring several
activities this week to increase
community awareness of the
problem and to raise funds.
Shakey Jake Woods and the Jazz
for Life Crusaders held a benefit
concert at Rick's American Cafe
last night, and Jazz for Life will
sponsor a bucket drive on the Diag
today and tomorrow.
The bucket drive will feature the
group Mosaic Art, playing from
noon to 1:00 p.m. The band Bop
Secret will be performing tomorrow
at the same time.
Other activities include a raffle, a
bake sale, and meal sacrifices in
dorms, fraternities, and sororities.
The meal sacrifice, promoted in all
residence halls last week, raised
more than $6200 for poor children
in Washtenaw County. 87 percent
of the residents of Mosher-Jordan
signed up for meal sacrifices, entit-
ling all residents to free admission
to last night's benefit.
Jazz for Life stresses community
involvement in helping poor
children. There are more than 5,000
of these children under the age of
six in Washtenaw County. Nation-
wide, one of every four children
comes from a family with an
income below the federally recog-
nized poverty level.
Jazz for Life also tries to benefit
Ann Arbor area children not only
with funds, but also through expo-
sure to the arts and cultural
In the past, Jazz For Life has
sponsored benefit concerts with
Dizzy Gillespie, Joe Williams, and
Stan Getz. Local children targeted
for this program enjoyed these
concerts for free and benefited from
The money raised from those
concerts was donated to the Student
Parent's Center, Perry Nursery
School, and the Headstart Program

The United Coalition Against
Racism held a teach-in all day
Saturday to discuss racism and
strategies to combat it.
The teach-in featured a variety
of speakers including University
students, professors, student lea-
ders from other 'campuses, and
community members active in
More than 60 people were
present at any one time, partici-
pating in dialogues on subjects
including the different faces of
racism, the history of anti-racist
struggle at the University, and
politics and strategies for building
national student movement.
Anthony Henderson, a UCAR
member and political science
graduate student, spoke on "The
Personal Politics of White
Racism and How to Combat It."
Henderson explained the dif-
ference between racism and
He said both minorities and
whites can be prejudiced, but
racism is an instrument of power
to oppress groups of other races,
and because minorities do not
have the economic and political
power to be oppressors, they
cannot be "racist."
Sociology graduate student-
Hector Delgado spoke on "Racism
and Reagan." Delgado said that an
increasing tolerance for racism and
a growing number of racist
incidents are attributable to the
actions and policies of the Reagan
Later in the teach-in, Black
student leaders from other univer-
sities spoke about their
experiences in organizing students
for anti-racist actions.

it was difficult to get apathetic
students there involved in the
struggle, and groups such as the
Black fraternities and sororities
were more concerned with ful-
filling their own personal agenda.
Henderson suggested that in
order to involve groups with
specific interests, a coalition must
"co-opt" some of the smaller
groups' interests within its own

Texaco seeks protection
NEW YORK (AP) - Oil giant
Texaco Inc., fighting an $11 billion
judgment in favor of Pennzoil Co.,
filed yesterday for protection from
creditors under federal bankruptcy
laws. It is the biggest U.S. indus -
trial company to take the drastic
The filing does not mean Texaco
is insolvent and should have little
or not effect on its day-to-day oper -
ations. But it means Pennzoil will
be unable to seize any Texaco as -
Analysts interpreted the move by
Texaco as a tactical measure to stall
Pennzoil and pressure the rival into
a settlement of their two-year-old
court battle, in which Pennzoil ac -
cused Texaco of illegally interfering
in a planned merger between Penn -
zoil and Getty Oil Co.

48 Hours (Walter Hill, 1982),
MTF, DBL/7:00 p.m., Mich.
Great "odd couple" flick about a
tough, cynical detective (Nick
Nolte) who must work with a
smart-ass con (Eddie Murphy) in
order to track down a very
psychotic killer. The movie strikes
an amazingly adept balance betwen
it's comedy, which is utterly
hilarious, and it's action, which is
tense and gritty.
Trading Places (John Landis,
1983), MTF, DBL/9:00 p.m.,
Very funny, well-paced comedy
about a snobbish executive (Dan
*Akroyd) who gets usurped by a
street-smart con (Eddie Murphy) in
_ order to test the "Pymalion" theory
of his amoral bosses. When the
men find they are being played for
pawns, however, they plot an
