Big room, no windows
He was escorted to my desk and
I introduced myself.
He was reuctant, I was nervous.
His name is Michael
He prefers to be called Michael.
asked Michael what had
brought him here.
He was hesitant, I was calm.
"B&E and CSC."
I pretend to understand and
during the course of our conver-
sation
I do understand.
He showed me a picture of his
daughter.
Lovely, adorable.
What will she think of her father,
when she is old enough to
understand,
I wonder.
Lovely Shamica, the light of
Michael's life.
Shamica has changed him, he
confesses
Life will be better
He's been a victim
and nothing is his fault.
He'll show us all, he confides.
Time works against us
Too fast, for a change.
He doesn't want to leave
He wants to talk just a little while
longe r.
Mules are rules are rules, I
admit,
Perhaps we will talk again, I
hope.
He asks me to escort him out, I
consent.
He was comfortable, I was
confident.
Feeling almost proud he rejoins
his group
and they gather and whisper.
I return to my desk and quickly
jot down notes-
Oh lichaa, what's a nice guy
ie you_~
"You're next," she yells.
His name is Marvin.
Just Marvin.
He didn't do anything, but when
he ges out
Le willbe better, he swears.

Work with the Elderly and See Someone Smile
What are you doing next semester? How about sharing your ideas, your enthusiasm, your youth, with an
older person? You only need to spend a few hours a week, but the rewards are great. The Elderly Outreach

quality of life for each person whose life you touch.
FRIENDLY VISITOR PROGRAM: Volunteers work one-to-one with the homebound elderly and handi-
capped in this Washtenaw County Dept. of Social Services program. You bring social interaction into the
home.
ADULT DAY CENTER: Frail elderly clients who are unable to live independently take part in various activi-
ties during the day in a warm, homelike environment. Sponsored by Child and Family Services.
WOODMONT OF ANN ARBOR: This convalescent center needs volunteers to make house calls to clients
and help with general activities such as crafts, games, and outings.
VETERAN'S ADMINISTRATION EXTENDED CARE FACILITY: Volunteer at this facility near North Cam-
pus which rehabilitates clients who have sustained mental or physical impairments while serving in the
armed forces.
TURNER GERIATRIC CLINIC NURSING HOME ENRICHMENT PROGRAM: Share your skills in creative
writing, drama, art, music, and life history interviewing with clients at 12 long-term care facilities and two
adult foster care homes.
COMMUNITY COUNCILS ASSOCIATION: Volunteers can work in a variety of nursing home settings.
For more information (and to volunteer!) please call the S.E.R.V.E. office at 936-2437, or stop by 2211

The intellectual Gift- While in the Bookstore, remember you can actually buy BOOKS there such as best
sellers, reference books, old classics, novels, and make-yourself-over books. For the less frivolous persons
on your list.
So: don't even think of leaving the Union until you have done all your holiday shopping. It's the painless way
to buy!
