Missing magazine pages? A
fellow student may have them
by Keith Weinbaum
You have this big term paper on
comparative Greek literature due next
You need periodical sources, so
you head for one of the campus li-
braries. After searching for several
articles, you realize many of them
are torn out.
If you are one of the 5,000 to
8,000 daily library users, this may
be an all-too-common occurrence.
Barbara McAdam, head of the
Undergraduate Library, said mutila-
tion of library materials is a problem
in all campus libraries. Because so
many people use the libraries every
day, the periodicals often suffer dam-
"(Mutilation) is an outrage," said
first-year LSA student Brian New-
combe. "This defacing of library ma-
terial displays a negative image of
our school, and should be halted at
To combat the problem,
McAdam said the libraries may be-
gin a public education campaign on
mutilation and use more microfilm
and computer databases.
Microfilm machines are steadily
becoming the main source for peri-
odical literature. But, McAdam said,
"Microfilm can never replace the real
magazine. Most students know that
microfilm is not a friendly process
and the equipment is not very reli-
able at times, though it is improv-
Database, she said, is probably
the most efficient way to preserve
"There are databases already avail-
able," she said. "It is not a cost-ef-
fective way as of yet, but we want to
explore all sorts of options."
and the use of steroids in sports.
The temptation to tear pages out
of magazines is often hard to sup-
press. Joel Topcik, a first-year LSA
student, said, "I don't condone it by
any means as a regular practice, but I
can't say that I or my friends have
never engaged in it."
First-year LSA student Eddie
Honos said, "I'm not saying that I

periodicals, but when you have two midterms

The UGLi management is cur-
rently studying the extent to which
mutilated materials are a problem. In
1984, there were 680 individual
pages torn out of the journals and
magazines, McAdam said, "The
problem is a cumulative problem...
and it is severe," she said. "It only
takes one student to ruin it for 1,000
The problem is so severe, she
said, that librarians may discourage a
student from researching well-known
"mutilated" subjects such as anorexia

LANSING (AP) - At least
5,000 people counting on fuel assis-
tance won't get it this year due to
Gov. James Blanchard's cuts in the
welfare budget, and one lawmaker
proposed a bonfire on the governor's
lawn for people without heat this
The $1 million reduction in the
Targeted Fuel Assistance program
would cut in half the number of
people who get assistance from the
state to pay their heating bills. Last
year, 11,500 households received
annual allowances of $200.
The cut is part of the $46 million
Blanchard's office plans to trim from
the $2.2 billion Department of So-
cial Services budget due to antici-
pated shortfalls in revenue to cover
promised programs this fiscal year,
which began Oct. 1.
"The people who are proposing
this should be without fuel for
awhile and see how it feels," said
Rep. Charlie Harrison (D-Pontiac).
