Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan carries a heavy load of
indignation after a week of hearings into the tangled
web of alleged influence peddling linking a Bronx
defense contractor, Wedtech Corp., and federal officials.
The style of the rumpled Democrat from Detroit,
who peers at the world over Ben Franklin glasses, has
been compared to that of a tough city prosecutor.
Levin at 53 revels in the tough-guy image, but
prefers to depict himself less militantly as the honest
city councilman come to Washington to purge the
bureaucracy of waste, shady dealing, misplaced purpose
and fuzzification.
That last word, a coinage of Levin's staff, is key to
understanding what makes Levin run.

An Information Desk will be staffed

When it's three

you're nearly
done with your term paper,
the last thing you want to
see on the screen is "fatal
disk error."
That's why so many
people insist on Sony.
One reason is that
Sony invented the 3.5F disk
drive as well as the 3.5"
floppy diskette.
Another reason Sony
floppies are so popular on
campus is their relentless

reliability. And that goes
for our 5.25" floppies, too.
After all, when it
comes to magnetic media,
nobody's ahead of Sony.
We're a world leader in

audio, video and computer
magnetic media.
The thing to remem-
ber about magnetic media
in computers is that almost
any input error can be
corrected, but lost data
is forever.
So, instead of learning
your lesson the hard way,
trust the diskettes that set
the standard for the others
to follow.
Use the Sony.
