money than paper," said one scalper,
who lowers his prices as game time
draws near.
SCALPERS CAN also hurt
themselves if they overestimate de-
mand and buy too many tickets. They
purchase most of their tickets from
students and season ticket holders, not
from the University Ticket Office, and
frequently have to pay more than the
face value of the ticket themselves.
Many of the Wolverines' scalpers
do not work Michigan games exclu-
sively. They travel the state, scalping
at other universities, at professional
sports events, and at rock concerts.
Most scalpers hold additional jobs,
since scalping profits aren't enough to
support them.
Despite their competition for cus-
tomers, some of the scalpers have be-
come friends. While working they
stand together and talk, and after work
is over they occasionally get together
and celebrate - especially if one has
a profitable day.
But there are some scalpers,

difficult for the others, local scalpers
said. According to one Ann Arbor
scalper, these visitors have caused
several fights among the scalpers. But
local scalpers avoid calling the police,
not wanting to draw attention to their
activities.
The scalpers all agree that they
would like to see their activities
legalized. "It should be legal to sell
tickets because it's a service," one
said.
They claim that people who have
arrived unexpectedly from out of town
have no other way of obtaining tick-
ets. Few tickets were sold to the pub-
lic for Michigan's three biggest
games this year- against Michigan
State, Ohio State and Miami - leav-
ing only one source for tickets:
scalpers.
Although Renfrew and members of
the Ann Arbor Police Department are
aware the scalpers in front of the
Union are breaking the law, they will
continue to do little to stop them.
"I don't think that they [the
scalpers] make a lot of money," Ren-
frew said. But the large wads of green
paper they clutch speak otherwise.

Texas "clout" in Congress in-
cludes Democratic Speaker of the
House Jim Wright and adopted
Texan President-elect George Bush.
Texas, Illinois and Michigan were
believed to be thesthree leading
finalists in the contest for the col-
lider. Illinois' biggest asset in its
campaign for the collider was the
Fermi lab, which houses what is
now the largest U.S. super collider.
Michigan had claimed its Stock-
bridge site would be the best loca-
tion for the collider. Stockbridge is
situated between the University and
Michigan State, and is less than an
hour's drive from Detroit
Metropolitan Airport.
But Phil Keef, assistant press
secretary for the Congressional of-
fice, said that once everyone looks at
the report, they will realize the deci-
sion is not political.
The biggest obstacle for Texas
now will be garnering Congressional
funding. This year Congress ap-
proved $100 million to be used to
research the project - but none for
its construction.
The SSC's construction will re-
quire $4.4 billion. Texas voters have
approved a $1.1 billion bond issue to
reduce the federal government's cost
for the collider. The Super Collider
will cost a total of about 10.8 bil-
lion during its 25-year operation.
Although the final site selection
will be announced in December or
January after the release of the final
environmental impact statement, no
change of sites is expected.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Dodak picked as new state
House speaker; attacks GOP
LANSING - The next House speaker said yesterday he's going to
have to sit down with his Republican counterpart to help heal wounds
inflicted by negative campaign tactics in the election.
House Majority Floor Leader Lewis Dodak, selected speaker by the
Democratic caucus for the two-year legislative session beginning in
January, said the GOP this year launched the nastiest campaign he has
seen.
Republicans picked up three seats in the House by defeating four
House Democratic incumbents and losing just one from their own camp.
That narrowed the lead held by Democrats to 61-49.
Dodak said House Republicans, who are led by Minority Leader Paul
Hillegonds, ran negative campaigns by distorting the voting records of
Democratic incumbents.
Gov't lifts home industry ban
WASHINGTON - The Reagan administration yesterday removed
most of the remaining bans imposed 47 years ago on home production in
the garment industry to combat the exploitation of immigrants and other
low-wage workers.
New regulations eliminating the homework prohibitions in five
clothing industries effective January 8 were published in the Federal
Register. The White House abandoned efforts to also remove the ban on
homework in a sixth field, women's apparel.
Labor Secretary Ann McLaughlin said that lifting the prohibitions will
give workers increased flexibility and improve competitiveness of U.S.
industries.
Jay Mazur, president on the 173,000-member International Ladies
Garment Workers Union, said the administration "cynically waited for
American working people to cast their ballots before launching a sneak
attack on workers' rights."
Lyme disease invades Mich.
FLINT - State environmental and health officials plan to check some
of the first deer taken after firearms season opens for signs of Lyme
disease, which could lead to serious health problems for humans.
So far this year there have been 22 confirmed cases of Lyme disease,
compared with two cases in all of 1987. This dramatic increase has
prompted unprecedented testing in Michigan.
The disease is a bacterial infection that initially causes skin rashes,
fatigue and headaches, but ultimately can lead to more serious heart,
nervous system and joint problems.
"It appears that Lyme disease is truly emerging as a public health
problem in Michigan," wrote Neil E. Pennington, a state department
official, in a recent state publication.
The disease cannot be transmitted through deer meat, so eating
venison that had Lyme ticks is not a health concern,-said Herbert Zinser,
a state health department worker.
Jobless insurance overhauled
LIVONIA - State labor and commerce officials yesterday announced
a major overhaul of Michigan's unemployment insurance system that
they say will boost efficiency while cracking down on fraud.
The 15-point plan capped a study of the jobless benefits program
launched last spring by Governor James Blanchard.
Michigan Labor Director Elizabeth Howe said consolidating anti-fraud
operations would help the state recover an estimated $4 million a year in
losses. Streamlining other parts of the system could save an additional $8
million a year and spare laid-off workers time and aggravation.
The plan, she said, would help prevent scandals like the one that last
month rocked Kinross Corp., an Upper Peninsula defense contractor
under investigation for allegedly paying some employees reduced wages
while allowing them to receive jobless benefits.
EXTRAS
'None' wins Nevada election
The Nevada ballot choice "none of these candidates" collected 2
percent of the votes in the presidential and Senate races while in
neighboring Utah, polygamist Alex Joseph failed again to win a county
post.
In Nevada, "none" did better in a state Supreme Court race, with 7
percent.
Nevada is the only state that gives voters this chance to sneer at the
candidates. And voters have used it.
In the 1980 presidential primary, "none" outpolled Sen. Edward
Kennedy of Massachusetts. Jimmy Carter narrowly beat "none."
In a 1976 primary, "none" got the most votes. The law says "none"
cannot actually win. The runner-up got the nomination.
In Utah, polygamist Alex Joseph's nine wives had little to celebrate as
their husband came in a distant third in the race for a seat on the Kane

County Commission.
Joseph, the mayor of Big Water and a niember of the Libertarian Party
finished with 128 votes Tuesday. Winner, Republican Jack Maxwell
garnered 1,387 while Democrat Vern Blanchard finished a second with
602.
