an agreement by North Korea to

Since the beginning of the
semester, the three branches of the
campus ROTC have been working
together for one common goal -
to scare Halloween thrill-seekers
Tonight and tomorrow night
ROTC members will hold their an-
nual haunted house in the basement
of North Hall, headquarters of the
campus ROTC program.
Although the living now oc-
cupy North Hall, it used to be the
home to a much different type of
person - a much colder, stiffer
kind. The University Hospital's
morgue used to be located the in
When people enter the basement
this weekend, they probably won't
see any real dead bodies. But Navy
ROTC Batallion Public Affairs
Officer senior Mike Beidler, the
theatrical coordinator for the
haunted house, said ROTC mem-
bers have several scenes planned
which may leave visitors longing
for the unthreatening company of a
In keeping with the morgue
theme, Beidler said one room of the
house will contain a "mad doctor
"We've got half. a dead guy
opened up, being operated on by
two crazy doctors."
Another room will feature
"the famous toxic swamp scene - a
few mutants and some guy cleaning
up some toxic waste."
If that's not enough, Beidler
said, "We've got crowd control
who perform hundreds of antics
all night scaring the living day-
lights out of people."
Beidler and about 150 other vol-
unteers from the Army, Navy and
Air Force branches of the ROTC
have been working on the haunted
house since September. "It's a good
time and people know it's fun, and
they want to be involved."
Last year, 2,175 students payed
$2 each to attend the haunted house,
Beidler said. After paying their ex-
penses, ROTC evenly donated the
remaining money to SAFE House
and the OZONE House.
This year, the proceeds will be
donated to SAFE house again and
to the Washtenaw County Viet-
nam Veterans Memorial. "We de-
cided to use small groups that re-
ally need it," Beidler said.
Susan McGee, director of the
Domestic Violence Project, which
operates SAFE House, said the do-
nation would be "lovely news."
McGee's program is currently fac-
ing the loss of $41,000 in state
"At this point, the money will
go for food and maintaining the
shelter - real basic stuff," McGee
On Saturday, before the general
public is allowed inside, Alpha Phi

group of underpriveleged Ann Ar-
through the haunted house, Beidler
Clif Flowers, the fraternity
president, said he accompanied the
children last year. "They were gen-
uinely frightened." He added, "It
was something they had a good
time with. We wouldn't have con-
tinued doing it if they didn't get a
kick out of it."

Business school senior Andrew
Spilkin attended last year's
haunted house - and made it
through. "I enjoyed it a lot. I
thought it was worth the money."
But, was it scary? "It's pretty
scary. There were a few points
where it definitely made me
jump," Spilkin said.
The building will open at 7 p.m.
each night and admission will be $3
a person. The line will be cut off
around midnight, depending on
how many people show up, Beidler
"It doesn't fail each year that
we have to turn people away. So, if
they want to go, get there early."
