" rom the very beginnings of American literature, writers have been fascinated with the prospect of a novel which some- now captures the essence of the American experience. For some, particularly in the early years of this century, the fascination lead to a consuming desire to write that novel, and many a tal- ented author devoted considerable efforts to that goal It is generally agreed, however, that none were successful-me Great Amer- ican Novel remains unwritten. But this result is hardly surprising, and today the quest has largely been abandoned as absurd. For America probably never will catch hold of such an all-encompassing doc- umentary. The nation is too large, too varied; it lacks the main fiber by which all strands are set to a predictable pattern. What ' s more, America is a place of rapid change, not today precisely what it was the day before. Still, such an ideal as the Great American Novel can give direction to a study of Amer- ica today, by sending us in search of those great varieties and differences and forcing us to examine them in the context of their con- tributions to the whole. Where might we begin such an enterprise? The writers of this book rejoice in the abun- dance of material in our own University of Michigan and its surrounding Ann Arbor community. In very few places is there such a concentration of varied cultures, living styles, schools of thought, modes of expres- sion, forms of entertainment, and people. The University is a sort of mixed-up micro- cosm of the nation as a whole. Though by no means a scale model or representative cross- section of America, U-M contains most of the elements which come together in various proportions to form the U.S.A. So an under- standing of the elements of the university may aid us in understanding what our country is and perhaps even what it is becoming. We have tried to create in this book a picture of U-M in perspective. Perhaps within that picture will be seen some of the American essence which would be captured in the Great American Novel, if it could be written today. Nonetheless, we must remember that our true subject is not the nation but the Univer- sity of Michig an. Our real purpose must be to provide the reader with an aid to under- standing what U-M is all about. And like America in general, the University cannot be contained in a single all-encompassing glance. It cannot be captured in a few pictures and paragraphs. Any analysis of the University must be an analysis of its multifarious aspects. In the following chapters, therefore, we seek to explore in words and photographs some of the specific things, persons, and events which contribute to making U-M what it is. We can only hope that the contents we have chosen to include will suggest in some way the tremendous range of activity-intel- lectual, recreational, cultural, athletic, and social-which makes the University of Michi- gan so many things to so many.

' 3 s summer ' s fleeing warmth blends into fall ' s brisk awaken- ing, seasons come alive, uniting -i w eacA o ier in transitional v harmony, closely parallel to the academic climate at the Univer- sity of Michigan. Each year, formal study transpires with shifts arid transitions: trad- itional programs continue as new ones develop, changing academic curricula, adding new limits to knowledge. Michigan ' s autumn seasons flare-up in bright cloaks of color, heralding Spring ' s rebirth, before dying in the frozen winter earth. Like passing seasons, Michigan stu- dents spend part of their lifetime here and are gone. Just as one season causes certain occur- rences in another, each class of Michigan students effectuate change in the education of classes following. Student involvement in . the academic community leaves an indelible mark on the framework for future learning at the University. Family tradition has brought many stu- dents to Ann Arbor for a University educa- tion. Other students come as the first in their family ' s history to ever receive a College education. Like continual seasons, the ideal College experience is the beginning of a learning process that will continue after graduation: College years being only one phase or stepping stone in a student ' s lifetime. The diversity and multiplicity of nature ' s talents corresponds to the diverse elements of educational opportunity in each of Michi- gan ' s 17 separate schools. Believing that fields of learning are not autonomous, the University encourages performance " in areas of study which not only subsume those needed by all educated men and women, but those as well that lead to effective integra- tion of human values, ethical commitment, and individual responsibilities. " Faculty and students at Michigan integrate knowledge, exploration, and discovery into Ann Arbor and surrounding communities. Community interaction develops as a stu- dent ' s theoretical ideas become manifest in the world of practical reality. Ann Arbor provides a sounding board for ideas, a testing ground for research. Local, state, and national politics serve as a ' battering ram ' for initiating change: students organize strikes, speeches, and rallies, as they stand up for their rights as human beings. Each season is part of a necessary cycle; an orderly system partially dependent on in- fluence and links from seasons past. Pro- grams at Michigan offer practical and sys- tematic application of knowledge rather than discovery and transmission ajone. Students are encouraged to identify with the past; to learn and grow in understanding former gains and losses. From each semester ' s learn- ing, a student develops new skills and aware- ness: skills necessary for meeting needs of the future; awareness essential to the under- standing of civilization ' s problems. The end of each academic year at Michigan scatters students across our planet much as the springtime wind scatters seeds upon the ground: each with a separate fate, an indi- vidual direction. Ideally, students who leave Michigan do so with a greater sense of self- understanding and self-expression: concepts of self and society which will help serve the world they live in during a lifetime of seasons. r M? 20 customary ' back-to-school ' blahs Autumn breezes of 1973 cooled the hot, moist heat which typified the summertime past. In Ann Arbor however, fall flurries were over-shadowed by the turbulence which characterized two days of fall semester regis- tration. Nearly 10,000 students comprised Michi- gan ' s seemingly interminable lines of regis- tration last September. As one bedazzled student put it, ' registration is for the dogs. " Seth Comstock, representative for Student Counseling Services, explains that " the most frustrating experience " for a student occurs when he or she attempts electing a course which has been closed. A major pitfall potentially exists when the student closed out of a course is a junior or senior. Often, this student has elected the course for distribution or concentration requirements. The student ' s only option remains one of substituting a course for token fulfillment of the requirement. The lack of counselors on hand at Waterman poses yet another problem. Whereas juniors and seniors are usually accustomed to the hassles of registration, freshmen, sophomores and transfer students are baffled to the point of considering ' turning in their ID cards. ' Registration has always been one of those inherited necessities germane to a college student ' s experience. Twice yearly, the setting at Waterman patterns scenes from years past: scenes universal to American colleges east, west, north and south of Ann Arbor. At the beginning of any given semester, one finds new faces, fads and course offerings. Only the classic atmosphere of frustration, confusion, and commotion remain the same. 21 LIFE AND DEA TH OF PROTEST: STUDENTS TAKE-ON THE BIG U In what many people called a resurgence of the ' 60 ' s student activism and others called a pathetic farce, the 1973 tuition strike lived and died. Rallies, demonstrations, petitions, and leaflets abounded, as did administrator ambiguities and altered expla- nations. The results of the strike and the reasons for them may perhaps be determined through a careful look at the facts. Early in the summer of " 73 the foundations of the strike were being laid. A six or seven percent ' cost of living ' tuition increase had been proposed and accepted in the Univer- sity Budget Priorities Committee. Then a bomb hit. The Supreme Court declared res- idency regulations of the U-M form illegal. New regulations had to be drawn up, and they were expected to create a flood of new ' residents ' . In the end, this would mean a significant loss in revenue, as fewer students would be paying the higher out-of-state fees. The Regents estimated that the tuition loss would reach 2.5 million dollars. New fee increases were proposed, discussed and passed in a telephone vote. These amounted to 18 percent for freshmen and up to 30 per- cent for graduate students. Students were not informed of the increas- es until the beginning of the fall term. The reaction to this ' back to school surprise ' was varied. Many students were indifferent far more were disgruntled but willing to live with the situation. Still others became very upset and began taking action. The Student Action Committee (SAC) was formed and later joined forces with Student Government Council (SGC) to protest the tuition hike. Meanwhile, the administration explained its position in the University Record and Michigan Daily, citing the anticipated 2.5 million dollar revenue loss and the need to recover it somehow. Student groups countered with some simple arithmetic. An average 24 percent increase with 38,000 students equaled 9.6 million dollars, not 2.5 million. SAC pub- lished this analysis in a leaflet which called for implementation in the 1970 Black Action Mo vement (BAM) promises as well as a roll- back in tuition. Several factions had emerged in SAC, however, and no concrete platform had as yet been adopted. A mass meeting was held at East Quad. At least twelve proposed demands were put forward in this meeting, and a final platform was settled upon. It consisted of tne following demands: 1) a rollback in tuition, 2) implementation of the BAM demands agreed to by the University in 1970, 23 3) adequate financial aid for needy students, 4) re-evaluation of residency regulations, 5) re-establishment of in-state status for all graduate teaching assistants, 6) an accurate and complete financial statement from the University. These were accepted by a majority of the students present. Other proposals were either ruled out by the chairpersons or voted down. This platform was adopted just prior to the September Regents ' meeting. SAC decid- ed to demonstrate at that meeting to show the Regents how they felt. About 65-75 people marched to the Administration Build- ing and jammed the lobby. About 15 more students, plus reporters, were allowed into the meeting. The protest seemed rather disorganized at first, with everyone standing around wonder- ing what to do. Then someone came in with a megaphone and the chanting started: " 2-4-6- 8, lower the tuition rate; 8-6-4-2, no more racist U. " This and other chants went up, but the frenzied dedication of some ' 60 s protests was not apparent. Some people laughed and joked, and a few just stood around watching. There was also no harrass- ment from building officials, who had perhaps learned something from past exper- ience. The Regents tried to carry on as they normally would. The meeting was disturbed at times by the loud chanting (particularly when the students got next to the chamber door and held the megaphone to the crack), but otherwise the meeting was only slightly disrupted. The Regents began by discussing various other matters, and then moved on to the tuition issue. A discussion of the residency regulations captured the attention of everyone. An appeal process was discussed, and the con- sensus was to leave it to the courts. One member suggested review by the Regents, but the idea was rejected on tne basis that it would " take too much time. " The next item brought up was the summer telephone vote on raising the fees. After practically no discussion, it was confirmed unanimously. Next the Regents considered a motion to make public all university salaries, by name, in order to ease the charges of rascism. This motion was defeated soundly with only two votes in support. At this point two members of SAC got the chance to present their demands and the reasons behind them. The Regents drank water, lit cigarettes, and generally appeared to pay little attention. Lee Gill, President of SGC, spoke next and apologized for the disturbance. He explained it as the students " saying ouch to being burned. " Gill asked for some student input into the Regents ' decisions. They replied that stu- dents rarely attend their meetings. And Gill returned with " let us into your closed meet- ings where the real decisions are made and we ' ll get some real student input. " On this sour note the meeting ended. In an interview with the Michiganensian, President Robben Fleming expressed his feelings on the student representation mat- ter. " There are two students appointed to the Budget Priorities Committee, ' he said. " The students don ' t show, and then secrecy is claimed. The minutes of those meetings are available. " The fact is, however, that the major tuition hike was approved by telephone vote of the Regents without consultation with the Budget Priorities Committee. Fleming insist- ed that the telephone vote was necessitated by circumstances. According to him, there was no information on the court ruling as late as the July Regents ' meeting and there is no meeting in August. In such a case, Fleming said, it is " standard procedure to use telephone votes. " The President also spoke about the issue of the 1970 BAM demands. The university agreed to ' " provide financial aid for a ten per- cent qualified black enrollment, " he said, " and we can ' t use a double standard for blacks. " In a seperate interview Mr. Wilbur Pier- pont, University Vice President in charge of finance, reiterated Fleming ' s views on stu- dent involvement in financial decisions. He also responded to charges that the university is a combination landlord and stock market player. Pierpont emphasized that the U-M owned Willow Run Airport is not a profitable oper- ation, and that money made on other univer- sity investments is used for students. He gave the ' Ensian access to the ' 73-74 budgets which substantiated his statements. In October an open meeting was called in Rackham Auditorium to discuss the tuition question. Included on the panel of discus- sants were Fleming, Pierpont, Gill, Dan Biddle from the Michigan Daily, and David Winter of SAC. Fleming started things off by explaining the original court order and the Regents ' solution to the problem which the order created. He emphasized things like " not having exact figures " and avoided the issue of a possible budget surplus. The student representatives countered with charges that the U-M average tuition was the highest in the Big 10, ana that the University was pricing students out of the market. At the request of many of the 150 or so students present, the meeting was turned into an open forum. One SAC member demanded negotiations on the tuition strike, which Fleming count- ered with " students never show up " . Gill returned with " the administrators are paid to do it. We have classes too. " At this point the meeting broke into a quibbling session and people began to leave. Meanwhile, the strike itself was getting into swing. The leaders set a goal of ten thousand student withholdings on the Sep- tember tuition payment. It was thought that this would create a disaster within the ad- ministration, since available funds were lower at this time. U-M President Robben Fleming, and Mr. Wilbur Pierpont. 25 PORTRAIT OF TENSIONS 26 The tuition strike leaders continued a vigorous campaign for student support as the payment deadline approached. Ads appeared in the Daily urging students to withhold pay- ment and leaflettmg was heavy. In the last two days of payment, SAC members circu- lated through the long lines of students waiting to pay their bills and urged them not to do it. It became apparent, however, that the strike was not getting the support which it ' s leaders had anticipated. Actual figures are difficult to obtain, out the administration has issued a statement that " there is no evidence of withholding within reason, " noting that " the normal percentage of students who don ' t pay " and " scholarship payments coming late " must be discounted. SAC had also urged that students write letters of protest and present them at the cashier ' s window. What became of them? The ' Ensian traced them from their presen- tation at the window and found that a Mr. William Turner had thrown them all away. According to him, " I couldn ' t care less. If the students don ' t know how to mount a protest I ' m sure as hell not going to help them. " Apparently the only communication reaching the Regents was that sent directly to them. Anything Turner got his hands promptly disposed of. As it turned out, there excess of tuition revenues, 3.75 million dollars. The decided to give two million to the teaching fellows who were threatening a strike, half a million for new recreational facilities, and $60,000 for more financial aid. About a million was returned to the students as a cut in winter term tuition. The tuition strike died out, but many issues remain unsettled. The questions of who makes decisions and why, teaching fellow ' s rights, and possible further tuition increases will undoubtedly arise again in the near future. For now the administration seems to have won out (students got a par- tial refund and the TF ' s got some aid, but the striker ' s other demands were largely un- met). The full effects of the strike, however, may not be realized for years to come. on was was indeed an totaling about administration students learn of foreign lands Michigan ' s International Center (1C) pro- vides an import and export (input and out- put) of foreign and American students. The center channels a great deal of information and services pertaining to the Ann Arbor community and to diverse foreign countries. Foreign and American students discover the realities of cross-cultural exchange during projects, programs and events sponsored by Michigan ' s 1C. The 1C helps prepare American students for personalized and productive study, tra- vel, or work experience abroad. Staff members at the 1C recently organized a campus travel information network. The net- work enables prospective travelers to talk on a one-to-one basis with experienced travelers or with foreign citizens from the countries which the students plan to visit. The center assists foreign students in gaining acceptance by providing opportun- ities for interaction and participation in non- academic areas of the local community. Staff members at the 1C counsel foreign students with problems in the area of housing, work clearances, immigration and naturalization regulations, health insurance and currency exchange. A large part of the staffs time is spent in- terpreting the workings of the University bureaucracy to foreign students. The 1C counsels foreign students for the purpose of helping them cope with the unfamiliar and complex problems of attending a huge educational institution. 1C offices also sponsor travel fairs and travel ori entation seminars in attempting to bring together ' first-timers ' and experienced travelers. The seminars are designed to in- clude foreign students who have adjusted to life at an American university.

The center provides inside information on min- imizing travel expenses and increasing the efficiency and enjoyment for the student planning to travel overseas. For a brief time, students traveling abroad escape routine conformity, traditions, and rules of the University and of society in America. The student experiences the free- dom and frustration of taking-on the role of a stranger in a foreign country, and of sharing universally the trials common to all foreign- ers past and present. The student traveling overseas is often somewhat lost, tucked-away on an unfamiliar continent with natives who speak only prim- itive languages. The student abroad remains lost in one sense but in another, his exposure to new horizons broadens his total awareness of life on the ' other ' side of the world. 29 Many Michigan students earn all of their academic credits in Ann Arbor after four years of lecture halls, laboratories, libraries and books. Common obstacles for many students wishing to travel beyond the Ann Arbor community are opportunity and finan- ces. A substantial majority of Michigan students rarely venture beyond the confines of their native state. Always however, a small percentage of students are drawn to the exploration of diverse and alternate cultures and life styles. For these ' traveling students ' , Ann Arbor is perhaps merely the focal point, center or home oase of a cultural circuit. For the student abroad, the street of a foreign city becomes a lecture hall, and laboratories are the marketplaces and stores where a student observes and analyzes a foreign culture. Extensive travel becomes an education in itself for the traveling student. A library of cultural awareness develops as a student exposes himself to far-away count- ries, cities, cultures, governments, traditions and aspects of different societies. students seek Women and children of an Indian family [upper right] in a temple in Delhi, India.

Students at Michigan may receive academ- ic credit for participating in any of more than 350 study opportunities abroad. Overseas programs are offered to undergraduate and graduate students by North American edu- cational institutions and organizations. The cultural awareness which a student gains from traveling abroad is an education in itself. The student traveler studies within a program designed specifically as an alter- native to ' classically dull ' textbook education. Tired of looking at pictures in history books, the student choosing travel abroad sees the conditions of a country as they really exist. TO- 30 new horizons Arthur Miller returns In an age where members of our society are sometimes skeptical of the alleged bear- ers of truth politicians, journalists, adver- tisers, etc. it is refreshing to occasionally hear the views of someone by definition in search of the truth: an artist. Such an opportunity was provided Mich- igan students when one of this school ' s most distinguished alumni visited the campus for two week-long stays. The man was Arthur Miller, considered by many to be America ' s finest living playwright. Miller ' s motives in returning to his alma mater were varied. Ostensibly it seemed a good place to work out the kinks in his new play, American Clock before it was exposed on Broadway. But there were sentimental reasons: " I nave a special affection for this school I suppose, because they let me in. No other school could make that claim. " And there were intellectual motives: " I get educated too as to learning what the students of the 70 ' s are like. I ' m not on a mission. I think it ' ll be very valuable for me. " Miller ' s opinions of students in the 70 ' s will be interesting to compare with his views on the young of the last four decades. From a recent essay of Miller ' s in Esquire magazine: " Probably the majority who became rad- ical in the Thirties were inspired by unfull- filled bellies and narrowed-down chances to ' make a buck ' . Which is natural and legiti- mate. As natural and legitimate as the number of Fifties and Sixties revolutionaries whose new vision was limited to the idea of getting laid without the etiquette of courting and bullshit. " Whether Miller was able to glimpse the 70 ' s revolutionary in two weeks of press con- ferences, lectures for a mini-course, work on his new play, and other distractions, is yet " There is a potential for generating a high level of work in Universities provided a pro- fessional can help them attain this quality. In terms of theatre the academic culture could provide a continuity that professional theatre cannot. It ' s not a hit or flop proposition; you ' re not concerned with economics. The atmosphere of Broadway is deadly because of the professionalism. " And finally, curiosity was an allurement: unknown. But certainly Miller could see parallels and contrasts with the students of 1973 and the students of 1934-38 when he attended Michigan. A striking contrast might be found in the student apathy of the 70 s with the activism of the Thirties. As Miller recalls in an article about Michigan in a 1953 Holiday magazine: " I tell you true, when I think of the Library, I think of the sound of a stump speaker on lor: say: 32 5Sxv ' $ Ljs y - .i the lawn outside, because so many times I looked up from what I was reading to try to hear what issue they were debating now. The place was full of speeches, meetings and leaflets. It was jumping with issues. " One parallel might DC in the job market situation Miller faced in 1938, and the unsur- ity of the value of a college education which many students find today. From the same article: " I left Ann Arbor in the spring of 1938 and in two months was on relief. But, whether the measurement was false or not, I felt I had accomplished something there. I knew at least how much I did not know. I had found many friends and had the respect of ones that mattered to me. It had been a small world, gentler that the real one, but tough enough. It was my idea of what a university ought to be. " Was it this ' small world ' which helped place. You may not learn about writing, but a young playwright could learn about the truth he wanted to express. That ' s the first thing the playwright should do, is to figure out what the hell ne is after. " But in search of the truth, Miller feels the artist must guard against over-intellectual- ization; " I think if I can knock down what I call some of the over-intellectualization going on now, if I can say one line that sticks in someone ' s head, it will be worth it. I ' m not anti-intellectual. But I don ' t want to lose per- spective. Here ' s where the young are. This is where it ' s gotta change. They ' ve got to get a vitalistic attitude toward this whole thing. I don ' t think it ' s the only place the young are, and I ' m not going to make a habit of coming here, but it ' s one place to start. " Whatever the problems of this academic community are, Miller still recognizes the value of a University education in helping an form the metaphysics of the artist who explored the tragedy of the common man in Death of a Salesman, allegorically attacked the hysteria of the McCarthy age in The Crucible, and examined the aspect of Nazism in Incident at Vicky 1 ? It is probably impossible to generalize the exact extent of the influence of anything on an artist ' s personal vision. But Miller did say: " I ' ve always felt positively about this artist achieve his vision: " It was in short the testing ground for all my predjudices, by beliefs, and my ignor- ance, and it helped to lay out the boundaries of my life. For me it had, above everything else, variety and freedom. It is probably the same today. If it is not, a tragedy is in the making. " 33 President Robben Fleming " It is in the best interest of the society to have people fkt ' iving through the Univer- sity around the University there ' is a great virtue in sort of free thinking about most anything. " tit rei U-M ' s President Robben Fleming hails from Paw Paw, Illinois which is a " little farm town " according to a local Paw Paw sheriff. Paw Paw presently has a population of 850 which is presumably a larger population than existed when Fleming grew-up there. " Everyone goes out of town for work; people work in the cities and just live here, " cites the sheriff. Residents of Paw Paw claim that the town has no industry. Fleming was remembered by Paw Paw ' s sheriff as a " pretty nice fella. " Fleming hasn ' t been back to Paw Paw for quite some time although some of his family relations still live in the little Illinois town. Fleming gained his education in several colleges throughout the country. He received a BA from Beloit College in 1938 and holds many Honorary degrees, among these an Honorary Law Degree and a Doctor of Letters or Literature Degree. Fleming believes that the ' 73-74 academic year was one in which the campus " settled back into it ' s normal state of tension. In the years when the campus was very turbulent there was a lot of uneasiness and unhappi- ness in the community about the campus. Michiganensian editors spoke with Fleming shortly after the University released its report on the excess revenue resulting from tuition increases during the fall semester. When questioned about the ' death of the tuition strike ' , Fleming said, " I think that the tuition strike is dead, yes. But I never thought it was very alive and I don ' t mean to demean the significance of that large rise in tuition because it troubled us a great deal too and I understand why students would be upset. " Fleming submitted to Michiganensian edit- ors that one and a half million dollars were in excess of the University budget. This million and a half was over and beyond the monies which had previously been allocated to teaching fellows, the Financial Aid Department and University recreational fa- cilities. " The question is, what should we do? " pondered Fleming. " Well, a million-five, though it sounds like a lot of money to all of us in terms of our personal accounts, is less than one percent of the budget we deal with. We know that utility rates have gone up more that $400,000 since we made the bud- get, and so we ' ve said we think we ought not to make any decisions now about that mil- lion-five because we can ' t tell that well into the future. " " In the first place, " Fleming continued, " that ' s only a projected amount. fact, the whole thing we ' re dealing with is projected. All we know at the moment is what s hap- pened this fall but there ' s another whole semester plus the half of that summer semester in the fiscal year. What we ' ve had to do is take the figures from this fall and then project them ahead and then make a decision and it ' s very difficult to estimate. " " Now, most of us who ' ve been public University people are opposed to seeing that tuition go up too much, even though we have as you Know had very rapid rises here. But we ' re opposed to that on the ground that if you let it continually go up and ask the stu- dent to pay more and more, that you will make it impossible for significant numbers of people to go. " Fleming thinks that " around the Univer- sity there is a great virtue in sort of free thinking about most anything " . He ascertains that this is not true for the vast majority of American communities. Fleming discussed with Michiganensian editors the Dean survey which designates Michigan as a ' prestige school ' . " There are always feelings about elitism vs. egalitarian- ism, ' notes Fleming. " Elitism in this partic- ular case is academic elitism in the sense that it ' s thought of as one of the universities where we have one of the ablest student bodies and the ablest faculties in the country. Fleming adds, " There is no doubt that the University places a premium on intellectual capacity, and all of us know that real life isn ' t quite that way, and that intellectual capacity is really only one quality in people. If you are just interested in the integrity or decency or conscientiousness or willingness to work hard and so forth, those are not by any means tied to people with high intel- lectual capacity, and yet that is the prestige ' symbol in a university community. " education for students of all cultures America is a land where rapid changes abound. Many times, changes occur when prejudices and biases are explored and modified, or dropped altogether. People like to think that these types of changes are good for American society as a whole, and they generally are. Public education, for the first time in history, is beginning to realize the needs of all ethnic groups within our society. Educat- ors have embarked upon programs to assess the needs, goals and values of all cultures within American society. In November 1973, Michigan ' s School of Education adopted a set 01 " multi-cultural objectives " applicable to all students and faculty in the Education School. Before a student is allowed to student teach he or she must fulfill the requirement of three courses in multi-cultural studies. Gwendolyn C. Baker, speaking for the Education School, claims that " untfl recently, curriculum in public schools of this country has been designated by and for white middleclass Americans. The needs and values of this group until the late sixties permeated every aspect of public education. Children of ethnic groups and of other cultures were exposed to education that by design had not considered their cultural needs and values. All children regardless of their differences were taught the same content, and this content excluded the cultures of many Americans. By so doing, it denied all children the opportunity of a full and realistic educa- tion. Tney have not been given the right and freedom to learn the truth about other people nor about themselves. " Ms. Baker states that multi-cultural edu- cation " does not mean separate units or courses of study. It means rather an inclusion and integration of not only the achievements and contributions of various cultures but the influence of those cultures upon the total culture of our nation. " The multi-cultural program in only one of many new innovative and unconventional programs or policies within the Education School. New goals have a ' threefold thrust ' according to Anne Hungerman of the School of Education. Traditionally, a U-M student teacher devotes one semester to a field based methods program. One of the Education School ' s tnree new goals pertains to the offering of earlier field experience for the . 36 student teacher. This is beneficial for pro- spective teachers in finding whether or not teaching is the ' right ' profession for them. A second goal deals with integration of components of the teacher education pro- gram. Classes are often put together in blocks via team teaching or similar field methods. At Burns Park School in Ann Arbor, this type of program is currently underway. Carolyn Crippen, Burns Park Elementary teacher, has one U-M student teacher and three assistants in her class- room. The assistants often help in the class- room previous to their student teaching assignment. The third new Education School goal pro- vides for the school itself to work more closely with the public schools. This is new and innovative a divergence or change from the critic teacher only providing a final analysis of the student teacher. These recent policies and requirements strive for ' practicum with methods ' in the teacher education program. Michigan ' s Edu- cation School offers a variety of program 37 38 The School of Education provides student teaching and assisting opportunities in local elementary and secondary schools. The school ' s involvement includes multi-cultural group inter-action and study of physical education research. options; there is no longer ' only one way ' for a student to fulfill education requirements. Public schools are also developing new programs and policies designed to provide more " freedom and freedom of choice for children " according to Jean Kelsey, critic supervisory teacher at Bador Elementary School in Ann Arbor. At Bador, first grade students attend class on a full-day basis. In the morning, first graders study academic subjects such as mathematics and reading. At noontime, kindergarten students join first graders and both age groups share learning experiences together. First grade students actually guide kindergartners by assisting in simple science projects projects learned by the first graders during their previous school year. Progressive education becomes eminently promising in light of techniques, policies, and programs implemented for public school students as well as those from Michigan ' s Education School. " Current teaching pro- grams are so much nicer than when we went to school, " submits Carol Niederleucke, student teacher at Bador Elementary. Ac- cording to Ms. Niederleucke a " fresh ap- proach ' applies to the new interactions between students and teachers on all levels. For instance, Ms. Niederleucke says that " when a child tells me something, I like to listen. When children ask questions, they really want to know the answers. " Michi- gan ' s Education School and many schools and educators across the country are trying earnestly to fulfill the needs of all children whose education is the teacher ' s respon- sibility. 39 J%- - .- ' -.. .?. : . student prelude to world of music In one of the greater American traditions, a University graduate seeks to apply himself in the field of nis chosen profession. A writer may attempt writing a great American novel while a musician aims for performance of a musical masterpiece or composition. Music students at Michigan culminate four long years of musical preparation with a degree recital. Presenting this music recital entails a great deal of work for the music student. The student initially works with his professor and choses the music he wishes to perform. A student is not confined to performing solo pieces; he may include duets, trios, quartets, or quintets. When a music student chooses to perform an ensem- ble piece, he usually calls upon his close friends to assist with the needed instrumen- tals. When a music program has been selected, many hours of practice are devoted to the pieces. Graduation recitals are of major importance to the graduating music student: a student ' s diploma is involved, and no recital means no degree. Music students are generally excited at the chance to perform, and they are more than happy to perform to a full house. Traditionally a degree performance takes the form of a ' family affair ' - many relatives and friends of the music student are present. " It makes it much easier to perform for an audience of familiar faces, " claims music student senior and oboe player, Ellen Sudia. After many seemingly endless hours of preparation and anticipation, the music student finally performs the recital piece. For the most part, students are left with a feeling of self-gratification and success - a desire ' to play on ' . 41 ' Ah, it ' s not always easy But the music keeps playing and won ' t let the world get me down. " Carole King 1 t f odi practical education in a ' textbook ' U: creative workshops Michigan ' s College of Architecture and Design offers a unique course for students in TV film, journalism, creative writing, adver- tising and marketing: a workshop dealing with the creative function of advertising. Each semester, the interdisciplinary work- shop is sponsored by one of many companies who are experiencing some type of a real problem with the marketing of their product or products. Students enrolled in the workshop are divided into four groups of approximately seven or eight students each. Each group develops a problem statement, creative concept, and an advertising strategy. Produc- tion of television, print, and radio advertise- ments begin with each group having an individual strategy or plan. Gerber Products was the target of the fall semester ' s advertising workshop. Students were directed to create an advertising concept in developing ancillary uses for Gerber baby foods, i.e., to sell baby food to adults; or to initiate a ' brand extensibility ' program. The production period consumes a great deal of time and effort, and for many stu- dents in the workshop, the campaign takes priority over all other classes. At the end of the ' 73 fall semester ' s work- shop each group presented advertising rec- ommendations to sponsoring executives and to ' top brass ' of a national advertising agency. Gerber Products and the D ' Arcy MacManus-Masius Advertising Agency were greatly pleased with the workshop recom- mendations of Group IV as presented in the fall ' 73 semester. Their critique of this group ' s recommendations contended that Group IV ' s material ' could go ' with minor copy changes. It appeared that some copy- writers read ' too many good things ' into the foods which they were writing about. Sponsors are generally satisfied with student recommendations, students are pleased, and a fresh, new creative marketing approach comes to light. The workshop provides a ' live ' problem; students partici- pate in an actual campaign - not just a class. Students participating in the advertising workshop function as copywriters, graphics artists, television studio technicians, photo- graphers and marketing agents.

The University of Michigan School of Engin- eering continues in traditionally contributing to the storehouse of knowledge gathered for dealing with and solving real-life problems in America. In recent years, engineering has become less of a practical art and more of a science. Engineers at Michigan seek to find the best or most economical solution to problems facing the world today. Each semester, stu- dents acquire the knowledge to find more and better ways to make life safer, cleaner, and more comfortable for increasing popula- tions across the face of our world. Inventing, designing, manufacturing and constructing are tasks which the engineering student undertakes in his studies at Michi- gan. The College of Engineering prepares the undergraduate engineer for solving prob- lems of air and water pollution, mass trans- portation, energy consumption and super- sonic travel. Graduate students acquire more knowledge and do apply much of it to the real world. 47 Naval Architecture and Marine Engineer- ing is a specialized department within Michi- gan ' s College of Engineering. All aspects of ship hull design and ship power plants are covered in the naval architecture program. The department, in communication with American ship design offices, shipyards, and ship operators, offers assistance in helping them to solve their particular problems. A large ship-model towing basin is located in the basement of U-M ' s West Engineering Building. The tank is complete with shops and instrumentation for student and faculty research. The tank generates waves to a separate identity determine how each boat will behave under certain forces and conditions. A dynometer measures force: strength, stability, resis- tance and powering are also calculated from the instruments servicing the towing basin. The naval Architecture program is only one of many ways in which the College of Engineering branches out to meet needs and demands of today and of the future. In a world where technology and scientific front- iers are of major importance to America ' s survival, each drop of achievement in the ocean of knowledge exists with importance, and with its own particular pride. I ider eter sis- inly B(rf and ,na out- ica ' s the nee, developing new concerns, new goals In keeping with patterns of progressive education, U-M ' s English Department has embarked upon a program providing greater opportunities for communication between students and faculty. Because of the large number of student concentrators in Englisn, situations of the past prevented students from interacting closely with faculty mem- bers and teachers. Only those lucky enough to know professors in the department avoided the detriments of mass teaching. New courses in the English Department provide for student participation in related activities outside oi class. All areas of interest are beginning to develop related English professors S. Khanna (above), Stev- en McDougal (right), Peg Lourie (above right), losef Brodsky (far right), and Lemeul Johnson (far right). extra-curricular activities such as study abroad, informal discussions, seminars with visiting writers and theatre parties. Discus- sion groups outside of class take an ' open approach ' to subjects dealt with. New concerns deal with literature in relation to other arts, with literature as a window through which students may view man ' s current problems and how man seeks to solve them. According to one professor in the English department, some courses have been designed to promote experimental jux- tapositions and contrasts, permitting litera- ture to be viewed from the perspectives of contrasting disciplines. Generally speaking, the overall goal of the English Department ' s new program is to make the English major more attractive to those students concentrating in Englisn. With a lesser percentage of Literature School students applying for the English major, the department is able to deal more directly with individual student concerns and interests. 50 51 autonomy at U-M Dearborn campus Situated on a heavily wooded and pictur- esque 200 acre setting, Dearborn campus remains somewhat secluded from the sur- rounding Detroit metropolitan area. Grounds and older buildings at the campus were once the property of Clara and Henry Ford. The existing gardens, gazebos, woods, trails, ponds and courtyards create idyllic settings within the campus complex. To a student from Ann Arbor ' s U-M campus, Dearborn campus looks like one, huge arboretum. During a regular college term, 30,000 students attend classes at the Ann Arbor campus. A campus of Ann Arbor ' s size is commonly criticized for stifling student individuality and initiative; Dearborn campus however, offers an alternative to large classes and overcrowded lectures. A mere 1,500 students are presently en- rolled in classes at U-M ' s Dearborn campus. Classes at Dearborn strive to maintain Mich- igan ' s high quality educational standards. The majority of classes are small, providing an opportunity for meaningful student in- volvement uncommon to many large univer- sities. Dearborn students participate in classes which promote interdisciplinary study; curricula frequently shuns traditional departmentalization, striving instead for di- verse approaches to subjects studied. Faculty and administration at Dearborn function with administrative autonomy al- though facilities at the Ann Arbor campus are available to them. A chancellor at U-M ' s Dearborn campus serves as chief executive officer and director of campus development. An ultimate enrollment of 10,000 students by 1980 is Dearborn ' s projected goal. This pro- posed goal will expand Dearborn campus into a major educational center of southeastern Michigan. 52 DEARBORN One of many ornate window- panes [far left] in Dearborn campus ' Fair Lane Conference Center, former home of Clara and Henry Ford.

Vander Velde attempted to establish a historical archive on Michigan ' s Ann Arbor campus. Materials for the archive were acquired by donation rather than purchase, and these early acquisitions created a pattern for all future collections. Vander Velde ' s collections contained orig- inal source material relating to the state of Michigan and to the University of Michigan. The modest collection soon received support from Vander Velde ' s close friend, University President Alexander G. Ruthven. In 1938, the archive was formally named Alumni As0uriatum 0f Hmumriiij of Hidiigan Charter Number J, This is to certify that The University of MichiganClubof isadulyionstituudunitoftlK Alumni Association and f emitM to all the rights and privileges under the Assoiriation ' sConstitution the Michigan Historical Collection by Univer- sity Regents. Main headquarters for the col- lection was located in Rackham Building. With the passage of time, the archive grew and materials were placed in widely scatter- ed sites throughout the campus. 1967 saw the beginning of a five-year fund raising drive with a long-term goal of search- ing out quarters uniquely suited to the Col- lections ' activities. Friends of the Michigan Historical Collection raised over $500,000 for a proposed non-circulating library during this time period. In December 1971, Arvella D. Bentley gave the Michigan Historical Collection an additional $500,000 in memory of her late husband, former Univesity Regent Alvin M. Bentley. Ms. Bentley ' s gift assured construc- tion of the historical library. August 2, 1972 marked the groundbreak- ing ceremony for the new Bentley Historical Library. In June 1973, the library opened in its new North Campus building. The archive is uniquely designed solely to further the work of a historical manuscript library. A secure and fireproof stack area assures permanent preservation of historical resour- ces relating to Michigan and the University of Michigan. Bentley Historical Library richly abounds in charters, diaries, journals, books, photo- graphs, pictures and manuscripts document- ing past history of this state and of the University. 20th Century political affairs in Michigan are a strong theme of the archive ' s holdings. Charles S. Osborn, Frank Murphy, G. Mennan Williams, George Romney, and current U.S. Vice President, Gerald Ford are among the political figures for whom the lib- rary has personal papers and manuscripts. Bentley ' s archive has diaries of Michigan farmers, war-related records, ethnic and religious papers, and general store records during pre and post-Civil War days. Michi- gan Historical Collections are fortunate to own the most significant collection of 1880 Prohibition Movement papers and records. In recent years, the archive has gathered papers of local radical groups such as the Rainbow People ' s Party, in belief that radical politics of today will someday be another asset to Bentley s political archive. At a time when America moves ahead so quickly in bridging horizons of the future, one may find a bit of historical nostalgia in Bentley ' s memorable remnants from the past. 54 ' .A ures ords the iical flier ; time f in find ley ' s :idS - ? 3 rom the lofty windows of the map room in the Graduate Lib- rary, one can take in the expan- l siveness of the University in all it ' s splendor. Southward the view is graced with the medie- val magnificence of the Law Quad and the clean, squarish lines of the Business School The University then stretches it ' s fingers further west to Wines field and to the smooth circularity of Crisler Arena and the stadium. On the north, the distinguished presence of Burton Tower and Rackham pro- vide a handsome backdrop to the Diag build- ing complex. To the northeast, the Hill, the University Hospital, and the North Campus beyond seem so far away. It is as if they were part of another world. For the newcomer to the University, such a panorama must be as bewildering as it is grand. It is a world unto itself. What a diver- sity of races and cultures is represented here. What an infinitude of interests and talents. The freshman might ask, " Just where is all this tied together? Where do I fit in? " In four years those questions are never completely answered. Upon first stepping onto the U of M cam- pus, the new student builds a skeletal idea of what the U is all about by immediate obser- vations. As the novice advances to the stage where he or she begins to pursue personal interests and concerns, the world of the U reveals itself in greater detail and some flesh is gradually put on that skeletal conception. There is indeed something for everybody. Hardly an extracurricular interest can be found which doesn ' t have some outlet in one of the plethora of campus organizations or social activities. For those of a jockish bent, intramural sports in which they can partici- pate and intercollegiate sports at which they can spectate are ample. Clubs and activities of a non-athletic type, however, are not given short shrift. Their orientations are ricn and varied. Politics is a primary concern for many at the University and groups centered on polit- ical issues represent a large portion of the ideological spectrum. On the same campus with College Republicans and the Committee to Re-establish the Gold Standard one can find the Impeach Nixon Committee and the Michigan Anarchist Horde. The international flavor of the student body is reflected in the national and ethnic organizations. Diversity is again the rule as the U recognizes such groups as the Japan Club, the Hungarian Language Society, and the Association of Venezuelan Students. The names of certain Ann Arbor nighttime roosts which students frequent for the purpose of moral and physical replenishment have become classics in their time. The even- ings at Bimbo ' s, the Pretzel Bell, the Brown Jug, and sundry other student hang-outs shall, for many, remain the most memorable symbols of college life. The University, then, is like a jigsaw puzzle. Each piece is shaped a bit differently, out each is necessary to fill out the whole grand scheme that is so much more than its individual parts. t ,0 L J ' ' " - ' I: s i ' ( ' need not be just room and board Perhaps the explanation lies in the uniformly high quality of education which U-M provides over such a broad spectrum of academic programs. Or maybe it has to do with the tremendous variety of social and cultural offerings in the Ann Arbor commun- ity. Whatever the reasons, the University of Michigan seems to attract an exceptionally heterogenous population of students. And, as is hardly surprising, the wide range of personalities and values existing in this pop- ulation is reflected in the diversity of housing forms adopted by students. While students can generally agree that housing on the whole is overpriced (Ann Arbor is the highest rent area in the country next to New York City), they are less in accord in their perceptions of what features are most important in a living situation. The results of a 1969 study by the Institute of Social Research indicated that most students weigh such factors of location, size, cost, opportunities for personal relationships, and services provided in choosing a place to live. But different people apply different weights and thus make different choices. Each form of housing offers its own particular advanta- ges. It seems only right to begin an analysis of student housing at Michigan with the Uni- versity Residence Halls the dorms since about 90% of freshmen and 30% of all students call them home. The dormitories themselves vary enough in such things as size, location, age, and architecture to satisfy a wide range of student preferences. But they do have certain features in common which set them apart from other forms of residence. Basic- ally, all of the dorms seek to provide a kind of " orientation housing " guaranteed hous- ing for new students aimed at easing their transition into university life. Dorm residents neea not concern them- selves with obtaining and preparing food, and recreational and study facilities are always near at hand. Each hall also has its own in-residence staff which provides the new student with information and, ideally, a friendly helping hand. Though orientation is central to the goals of the residence halls, a large percentage of sophomores and more than a tenth of all juniors and seniors return to them. No doubt some just don ' t make the effort to look else- where for housing, but others are attracted by the kinds of features mentioned above. And still others value something else which the dorms have to offer a chance for social contact with greater numbers of people, people of widely diverse cultural ana econ- omic backgrounds, than any other type of housing can claim. Of an en ex sti pk 60 living and working together Student cooperative housing is another option adopted by a minority (a little less than 2%) of students. The basic belief of the Inter-Cooperative Council (the central organ- izing body behind the 24 co-ops on North and Central Campuses) is that students living and working together in small groups can create an economical and rewarding living experience. According to ICG ' s own survey, students who look to co-ops are most commonly interested in an economical place to live and a chance to live and relate mean- ingfully with people. Do the co-ops live up to their ideal? By their very nature, as implied by the word " cooperative, " co-ops must depend com- pletely for their success on the particular groups of people who inhabit them. But there is evidence that things generally work out well. Co-ops are economical, for one thing. At m about $115 per month (plus four to six hours of work a week), co-ops offer the least ex- pensive room and board on campus. They attract a membership which, according to an ICC spokesman, " spans the spectrum of people in the University. " The return rate novers around one-half to two-thirds, and co-ops always have two or three times as many applicants as spaces. The university housing system offers a similar kind of cooperative living experience for about 180 students at Oxford Housing. Residents take responsibility for cooking and menu planning and are expected to complete several hours or work per week as in the ICC co-ops. Several of the Oxford co-ops are " Language Houses, " in which a language other than English is spoken. 61 your own place Whatever else can be said about residence halls, the fact remains that most students eventually leave them behind-many before their second year and most of the rest after it. They go seeking a variety of things: lower rents, better quality and greater quantity of food, more room to move, and quieter sur- roundings among them. Many find some or all of these in private apartments and houses, where nearly half of all students and over half of all non-freshmen reside. In general, students seem to find a greater freedom to live in the styles they prefer in private dwellings than in university housing. But the greater freedom comes at a price. Buying and preparing food and keeping an apartment or house at least inhabitably clean are things that place demands on the student ' s valuable time. And most find that there is substantially less opportunity for meeting new people and less community feel- ing in an apartment than in a dormitory. 62 ' 63 individuals and friends at home The fraternity-sorority life style lives on at the University of Michigan. It attracts only about five percent of students, however, which is only a third of the percentage it claimed a decade ago. The current low popularity of " Greek " living (which many believe will prove a tem- porary phenomena) may be due in part to inaccurate stereotypes which others hold concerning the people who join frats or sor- orities. Cathy Gulhckson, Pan Hellenic Ad- visor, believes that this is so. While she admits that sorority memberships may tend to be somewhat more conservative than the University as a whole, Cathy contends that each member is a unique individual and is treated and respected as such. " There is no attempt to mold people into some single image, " she says. Certainly some students who choose frats or sororities do so simply out of dissatisfac- tion with the alternatives available, but many take a more positive attitude toward their living style. They appreciate the fact that it gives tnem an opportunity to get to know well a fairly large number of people with whom they share at least some attitudes and interests. " And when you ' ve got a problem, " says one sorority member, there are usually people there to help. " V ' c CA i r, ' . HOME SWEET HOME In a school which boasts as large a grad- uate population as the University of Michi- gan, it is not surprising that nearly a quarter of all students are married. About twenty percent of these married students live in University operated family housing units, some located on North Campus and some east of the Medical Center. The University has been quite successful in providing low-cost housing for a good number of low income married students. The standard rates of less than $130 a month, utilities included, for a furnished one-bed- room apartment, with transportation to cam- pus provided, are very difficult to match anywnere in Ann Arbor. Accordingly, appli- cations far exceed available spaces and hous- ing assignments are made on an income- priority Basis. While some voice complaints against the University dwellings (inadequate size, flimsy construction) -many residents are well-satis- fied and see them as a good place to begin a family. Young children can easily find plenty of companions. And the atmosphere is very " international " , as 25-30 percent of family housing dwellers are foreign students. tfew spare hours but easily filled One does or does not need to spend money to have fun on a " free " night. At any moment there can be a football game whether one lives in a dorm, co-op, apart- ment, frat or sorority. At any moment one could realize that he is fed up with having people around at all times there is the Arb where one can appreciate a tree, the sky, or a good talk with a friend. At any time the urge for a fragel or a drink may strike and until around midnight there is a place on campus to fill this whim. If there is a craving for a donut, the Dexter Cider Mill provides an excellent excuse for leaving campus on that Sunday afternoon that is just too nice to stay inside. One also may gain the knowledge as to how cider is made. The movies at the Architecture and Design building, fishbowl, Nat. Sci., and MLB as well as those on State, Washington, and South University provide an escape from reality. Others find release in IM sports or bike riding or burning the midnight oil by either studying or playing cards or smoking with friends. There are informal gatherings as far as classes go, too. Students and professors meet at the coffee hours set aside each week and some prof s hold classes at the V-Bell or Dominic ' s. Still others may not wish to peer into a beverage glass but gaze into the sky hoping to catch a glimpse of an Unidentified Flying Object. Fall Saturdays bring the foot- ball games and the parties afterward. Hill Auditorium and Crisler Arena house fine performances involving those who enjoy singing or listening to fine artists. What ever a student may choose to do with his time, there is a lot available on campus ranging from peaceful, to a lot of action, with or without delving into his pocket. i I ! 1 t I I u $f fft ): ' lfi ]M. c .- - f :- The geographical focus of the United States centers in a small Kansas community. This university community has a similar geo- graphical focus the Diag. But the Diag is not just the geographical center of the University, it is the cultural center as well. One type of person can be seen at the Power center on a Friday night. Another type is diligently studying at the Graduate Library. There are the freaks over at Alice Lloyd or the frats over on Washtenaw. This is not to say, that never the twain shall meet in any situation. The most obvious place would be the Diag. Sit for an hour around noon and observe every character this microcosm of American society offers. ROTC students march to North Hall, while nursing students bustle to the Medical Center. Freaks and their mutts play frisbee and gray-bearded professors linger on to lectures. The Diag welcomes political rallies, demon- strations and counter-demonstrations, West Quad streakers, guerilla theatre, initiations of the Druids, Hash Bashes (the Ann Arbor annual), and telephone booth stuffing con- tests. Anything can be expected! Pamphleteers pilgrim to the Diag to distribute their wares. Local dope smokers and pan-handlers meet the new flock of street people. Dogs romp in packs and steal frisbees. Students gather to celebrate the first day of spring. Varied people with infinite motives and intents mav observe, visit, or just experience the Diag.

Convarsation Permitted GRADUATE EDUCATION ill II H H The Undergraduate Library embodies the elements of this multi-faceted university. For some it is their intellectual niche, for others it ' s a night time social center where students living in apartments spread out over this wide campus to meet their friends. For others it ' s a place for some free entertain- ment. The bouncy walk of a pretty girl walking down the aisle or a handsome moustachioed man reading a newspaper may distract from the long night glare of a prosaic book. For others the snack room in the basement is a place for social contact and entertainment some have spent hours there during coffee breaks and have devoted only fifteen minutes to studying. Some use the group study room for socializing, and where else can you play with your dog while thumbing through the Oxford English Dictionary? Free Psych films in the Multi-Purpose Room and the endless hours of listening pleasure available in the Audio Room entertain those who do not have a buck to buy an expensive concert ticket. Some are amused even by the old leather skinned man with the dark deep set eyes who checks book bags at the exit booth. Next door to the Ugli is the Graduate Library. Those who enjoy the confusion of registration lines can find their labyrinth in the subfloors of the old North Building and for other tastes, the grandeur of the Reference Room among Greeco-Roman fres- coes is the answer. When midnight finally comes and the lights are shut off on the second and third floors, the time when students descend to the basement, it is also a new day for the Great American Library more events, different faces, and busy ID cards at the Circulation Desk. s 7O 71 search for entertainment Left: Many students enjoy the home-like atmosphere and the fine singing of artists such as Paul Siebel at the Ark located on Hill Street.

From this it would follow that attitudes towards such social customs as sexual behavior, drinking, and use of marijuana would be more liberal than other places. But it seems the consensus among well- informed individuals here that the customs at U of M aren ' t radically different than those of the society at large. In fact, one expert who wished to remain anonymous felt that the marijuana usage at Michigan was on the decline because of the increased acceptance of it in other levels of society. He felt that, whereas smoking dope was wide spread four years ago on campus, it was decreasing because of its loss of novelty. Four years ago the campus environ- ment was the only one where marijuana was abundant, now it seems to have penetrated all levels of the society, which has led to the lack of novelty for University students. Another aspect of this decrease may be the lowering of the drinking age in Michigan to 18 years of age. Although marijuana is becoming socially accepted, it still can not be done in public like alcohol can, although you can usually smell its pungent odor at con- certs, football games and movie theatres. Many false impressions are held outside Ann Arbor as to what amount of pot is smoked here. It probably would be safe to say that a large majority of the students have tried it, but fewer are regular or occa- sional users. There are no more social pres- sures to use it anymore than there is to grow long hair. It ' s up to the individual. Should one decide to use marijuana or any other drug, they should experience no trouble in obtaining some. Although the $5 . . . it seems that the major characteristic of the new sexual customs is a higher level of enlightenment combined with a greater readiness to experiment. " (i me arr lief Be: cat Bii tin : thi ire no we Ar y 74 could only see you now: r marijuana ordinance was repealed last sum- mer by the Stephenson regime, the threat of arrest is still minimal. If someone wanted to make a good invest- ment in Ann Arbor, they should get a liquor license and build another bar. The Village Bell, probably the number one bar on campus, is frequently forced to turn away patrons. It seems local merchants have still been unable to catch up to the demand for places to drink and dance created by the lowering of the drinking age in Michigan. Many a student has driven all the way to Bimbos in Ypsilanti in search of a " good time. " In the area of sexual habits on campus, things are generally agreed to be getting freer over the last twenty years. But it would probably be found that campus sexual behavior is not as far ahead of national norms for unmarried young adults as one would think. Twenty-five years ago Dr. Alfred Kinsey published his famous survey of American sexual habits. In 1973 the Playboy foundation sponsored a similar survey conducted by Morton Hunt, aimed at determining how much customs had changed in those 25 years. Among the findings relevant to the Univer- sity age group were these: In Kinsey ' s study one third of the single women had inter- c ourse by the age of 25 years, in Morton ' s three quarters had. Morton found that of males with some college education more than half had premarital sex by the time they were seventeen, in Kinsey ' s survey only one quarter had. It was found that contact with prostitutes in the 18-24 year old group in 1973 was half as much as it was in 1948 survey. The variety of sexual practices had increased greatly over 25 years although homosexuality had remained fairly constant. Interestingly, many of the conclusions reached by Morton coincided with candid views of authorities on campus: Ira Reiss, a leading expert on sexual mores felt that attitudes expressed by college students on sex didn ' t necessarily agree with their actual practices. Morton ' s article concluded that sexually liberated single girls still feel liber- ated only within the context of affectionate or loving relationships. University authorities here agreed. " While students do not feel sex for physical pleasure alone is not wrong, they are still inclined to search for relationships that go beyond that aspect " commented one in a phone interview. So it seems that the major characteristic of the new sexual customs is a higher level of enlightenment combined with a greater readiness to experiment. But it seems that the ultimate goal of a physical combined with an emotional relationship has not changed. 75 the hassles 76 At the big U, trying to get your homework done and naving fun at the same time requires a cool head and a sense of humor. The sad thing is that we all have to pay our bills and buy our books and that means we ' ll have to stand in those unbelievably long lines. And for the ambitious, there are also those mass campout and pajama parties knows as the football ticket lines that seem to start earlier and earlier each Fall. We stand in lines while waiting for those works on reserve in the library. Nobody can under- stand why everybody else waits till the night before exams to read them. When we don ' t have wheels to get to our destinations we have to register with traffic control over in the basement of the Union. And of course there is always the problem of traffic cops and tickets, but students don ' t seem to mind this top much knowing that the City operates exclusively on ticket income. 77 Homecoming the old and new Homecoming, once pre-eminent among social events at Michigan complete with Queen and formal dance, now seems a custom strangely withered and lacking in vitality. Homecoming, by somewhat royal decree, is set aside to shake our preoccupa- tion with the here-and-now. It is an excuse for placing the cares of our lives in temporary abeyance and experiencing the joy of living in a simple r age, if only for a few days. October nineteenth and twentieth was such a time. True, unlike Homecomings of days gone by, the parade was sponsored by Ozone House, which lent it an unusual feeling of modernity. Yet while lack of monetary support may have made the parade less polished, there was a feeling of togetherness on the part of the spectators, and the excitement which any spectacle can produce. And in the Egg Drop contest at the West Engin building earlier in the day, there was a feeling of spontaneity and the community that shared laughter can give. Saturday ' s Mudbowl, the best ad for a laundry detergent ever dreamed up, was another such moment. Another hallmark was the Judy Collins concert. Touched by the beauty and simplicity of her singing, the audience sang Amazing Grace " witn her softly and then remained to demand a second encore which she graciously gave. All in all, Homecoming was a weekend of togetherness and relaxation. Parties, con- certs, the alumni band at the game, all contributed to the delight and carefree happ- iness which all who participated felt. And it was in this participation that the real spirit of Homecoming was evident. 78 was Above: The Egg-Drop Contest in process at West Engin. Next right: The winner and its creator, Randy.

" t h e y e a r In America, political involvement takes many different forms. A few dynamic indi- viduals totally immerse themselves by cru- sading for certain issues, campaigning for their candidates, or marching in the streets. Others are content to donate money and some just keep up with the issues so they can vote intelligently. Finally, many dont even bother to vote. At U of M, all these levels of political involvement are easily found. Incidents with the Nixon Administration and the Mideast War triggered diag rallies and marches to Congressman Esch ' s office. Students work at the Ecological Center and for the various political parties. But the students involved in these activities are a small fraction of the student population. On the whole, student involvement in politics is very poor. In the April 1973 city elections, according to various estimates only 5-25% of the students even bothered to vote. HRP coordinator for January 1974, Betsy Engel commented, " Student involvement in politics? There is none! " What are the reasons for such a low turnout? Will the apparent student apathy persist through the 1974 city elections? A few possible answers come to mind. The defeat of George McGovern in the fall of ' 72 may have turned many students away from electoral politics. All the student effort and involvement didn ' t even make the race close, and a feeling of political impotency resulted. Perhaps, many students do not vote because they haven ' t registered in Ann Arbor. Most U of M students turn eighteen before they come to Ann Arbor. A good number may register at home and never bother to change their registration when they come to campus. Registration difficul- ties especially affect the Republican student turnout. Ward Kuhn, chairman of Young Republicans in Ann Arbor, notes, " Many stu- dent Republicans don ' t think that registering in their college town is right. " Whatever the causes of the low student turnout in the ' 73 city election, it ' s difficult to imagine that the Watergate and Agnew scandals won ' t have an effect on student Darticipation in the April 1974 election.

The horrors of Watergate may have turned even more students away from the voting process. " Students will be more apathetic than ever, " says Kuhn. On the other hand, some observers think that the scandals in Washington will result in an increased student turnout. Guy Cavallo, chairman of the Young Democrats in Ann Arbor, reports, " Students have realized that the government got out of control because everybody was uninvolved. They ' ll realize that the only way to clear things up is to get people back into the electoral process. I expect that the percentage of students voting in citv elections will rise. " This April ' s elections, then, will probably be a good indicator of the future extent of student political involvement in Ann Arbor. As for now, apathy reigns. f W J a t e r 9 a t e 81 ffs VH I te : MMNS KACI 82 jf Opposite page clockwise from left: Students dem- onstrating in the Israeli Rally on the Diag.

Left this page: Dramatizing a CIA agent observing the Chil- ean government. students react to Chilean plight On September 12, it was learned from Santiago that Socialist President Salvadore Allende had died, in coup orchestrated by rightwing generals. Allende never had smooth sailing in his efforts to lead Chile down a socialist path. A long series of crip- pling strikes had made chaos of the Chilean economy. In bringing down Allende, the military had the support of those sections of the citizenry which had been disadvantaged by socialist reforms. Pro- Allende elements had no comparable police force and have been systematically repressed. On October 7, less than one month after the coup, we received word that Egyptian tanks and men had poured across the Suez Canal while Syrians struck Israel on the Golan Heights in a renewal of violence in the Middle East. Each side blamed the other for initiating hostilities. With heavier losses than in the 1967 six-day war, the Israelis were able gradually to push Arab forces back to the boundaries at which the violence had or- iginated. The UN moved in to enforce a stalemate situation in hopes of later settle- ment. At certain moments, it seemed as if the university community might react to these events with the same discouragement and apathy that has characterized campus polit- ical feeling in the last couple of years. For many on campus, this is just what happened. But there were also some scattered signs of the activism of the late ' 60 ' s. For those who cared enough to say any- thing about it, the Chilean Coup was a moral and political outrage. Demonstrations march- ed to Representative Esch ' s office in hopes that he would make a public statement on the coup. An open letter, signed by certain concerned members of the Ann Arbor Community, including students, TF ' s and faculty, requested that the U.S. Foreign Relations Committee investigate possible ITT and CIA involvement in the Chilean affair. Two teach-ins on Chile were soonsor- ed by the University Catholic student Chapel. Reaction to the outbreak of another Middle East war was more mixed. Some Arabic and Jewish students here felt strong loyalties to their respective sides. Jewish students par- ticipated in a demonstration and sought fi- nancial aid for the Israelis. On the other side, a conference of certain campus radical mili- tants denounced " Zionist Imperialism " . In total, social-minded students had to be discouraged by these tragic international developments. But it is gooqthat discourage ment aid not drown out active concern. 83 SGC student apathy or action? As the revelation and accusations sur- rounding the Watergate affair surfaced throughout 1973 and 1974, Americans be- came aware of an unending parade of nation- al political corruption and scandal. Myster- ious campaign contributions found their way into political coffers; seemingly sincere state- ments have become " inoperative " . Eventually the vice-president resigned and pleaded guilty to income tax charges. The President fired special prosecutors whose investigations got a little too close to the Oval Office. The White House staff told the courts that two of the infamous Watergate tapes had never existed. The average length of the term of a U.S. Attorney General decreased astronomically. Voices crying for Nixon ' s impeachment or resignation swept over the land. Reactions to this bewildering string of occurrences were very dependant on the ind- ividual ' s outlook. Hardened skeptics about the American political system grew even more hardened in their pessimism. Optimists had their hopes shattered, perhaps beyond repair. Many people wondered if an uncor- rupted representative democracy was merely a pleasant fantasy of Utopian dreamers. Still others may have thought that clean government could be found outside the field of conventional civic politics. In fact, at first glance, the college would appear to be one place to find such a government. Students, as yet untouched by the ambition and avarice that often accompany power politics, ought to be able to create models of demo- cratic government. Unfortunately, UM student government is hardly an example of uncorrupted democracy in action. SGC elections have been contin- ually plagued by scandals, computer foul-ups, and low student turn-outs. For instance, fewer students voted in the October 1973 SGC elections than ever before. Less than one thousand votes were finally tallied and charges of fraud and illegal tactics were rampant. The results were none the less certified and students who won their council seats by literally one or two votes became SGC members. And it is not easy to forget the election of the Spring of ' 73 when charges of ballot-box stuffing caused the whole election to be thrown out. Once pre-election shenanigans have ended, subsequent council proceedings have been marked by name calling and accusations. Last fall, charges of embezzlement and thievery were hurled at the SGC president. SGC is composed of so many factions that its effectiveness as the student body has been virtually destroyed. In response, last November, the Regents authorized the form- ation of a committee of students, faculty, and staff to study SGC ' s problems. Modern day demonstrations both in Ann Arbor and Washington sometimes act as if a committee will cure all ills. Whether this particular committee will improve SGC is open to question. Defenders of current SGC activities, how- ever, claim that student apathy is the real problem with student politics at the U. If students really cared, they say, SGC would be an effective organization. In reality, the exact relationship between SGC ' s activities and lack of student interest is very tangled and unclear. Did SGC ' s ineptness give rise to student apathy or did lack of student involvement create an atmosphere of irres- ponsibility in SGC? Whatever the casual relationship, U of M students realize that to find examples of in- effective democratic government they need not look to Washington, Lansing, or City Hall. They can find it right here on campus. 84 t-.--r on r th B T- fc . . . ' ' _ ....- . i.i- -cr AtV!VUx v so?.i u. tl : SSK _ , , SCHOOL. 001. I EMC i i , i viy i L ONEll ' ' " ....

Far right: Bob Chenowith former POW, now activist. It has been said that the students of the seventies are an apathetic variety. No longer are they able to muster rallies of several thousand students for such things as war protest or the Bam strike. A large gathering for the tuition strike numbered in the hundreds. Yet it looked like some of the old political interest of the sixties was still there, when upwards of 1800 students jammed Hill Auditorium October 1st to hear anti-war activist Jane Fonda and friends. The crowd was decidedly enthusiastic. Former Michigan Daily editor and now activist Tom Hayden received a resounding ovation, as contrasted with the smattering of applause he received at the John Sinclair- Jonn Lennqn concert two years ago. Perhaps some of this could be attributed to a " local boy makes good " attitude concerning Hay- den ' s marriage to Jane Fonda. But other members of the program received warm responses from the audience as well. Bob Chenowith, a former POW, now activist, garnered a standing ovation speak- ing on the American cultural invasion of a third world nation. Also appearing were Jean-Pierre Degris, a former political prison- er in South Viet Nam, and some musicians headed by Holly Near. The top attraction on the bill was, of course, academy award winning actress Jane Fonda. Fonda reminded the audience that the work of the peace movement was not over. The main purpose of her tour of 14 states and 23 cities was to stimulate concern over the " 200,000 political prisoners still in the jails of South Viet Nam " . The star of " Klute " exorted students to write their Congressional representatives to cut off Uni- ted States funding of the Saigon prison camps. At a press conference earlier, Fonda was asked what she hoped to accomplish in light of student apathy of the seventies. " Because of the demonstrations and the activism of the sixties, 35 senators supported an anti-war amendment and we ' ve stopped the bombing of Cambodia. I think the press tends to over- look the fact that anti-war sentiment is still very massive. We have created the situation of a massive police force in Saigon, and we are responsible. " She later lauded the fact that an Ann Arbor faction was being formed to carry on the work of her tour. Fonda felt that new interest in the Anti-war movement was a result of public shock over the Watergate affair and a resulting realization of the corruption of the Nixon administration. In all probabilities the demonstrations of the sixties are but a memory. But the turn- out for the Fonda lecture demonstrates that anti-war sentiment is still very much alive. Perhaps it will take new methods to mobilize the sentiment and achieve the motives of the anti-war movement. 87 ca: es] sir IK Stl en: in A campus of over thirty-five thousand can ' t help but appear to be overwhelming- especially to the individual coming from a smaller, less diverse environment. The tremendous size of the student body at the University of Michigan is something to which all students must adjust in one form or another. Fortunately, U of M provides for a wide range of minority groups that are an integral part of the Ann Arbor campus. One of the major issues involving minority groups and the University ' s policies is minor- ity enrollment. Government intervention and student activists over the past decade have enforced a minority enrollment quota system which ultimately works for the minorities. Once a minority student finds himself at the University of Michigan, he is not ignored. A variety of minority advocate groups have offices in the Michigan Union which provide a wide range of services from counseling, to scholarship information, to getting acquainted with University proced- ures. In addition to racial and ethnic minorities, there are also many social minority organiza- tions. Disabled Advocates, Gay Awareness groups and Women ' s Organizations also have facilities in the Union. One of the primary functions of these groups is to serve as an The ultimate purpose . . . is to adjust to the demands of the Univer- sity . . . and to reinforce individuality and person- al growth. BBB everybody looks for " mainstream information service to the rest of the Univer- sity that normally does not become involved with their activities. For example, the Gay Awareness groups spend a great deal of time going into classrooms and lecture halls to promote better understanding of the individ- uals in their organization. Some of the special minority services can be found in Trotter House, which acts to assist black students during their stay here at the University. Trotter House provides the black student with a sense of belonging. The International Center similarly provides a warm atmosphere for foreign students. In addition to the usual counseling services offered by these organizations, the Inter- national Center coordinates various activities -fairs, dinners, dances-that involve foreign students with the rest of the University Community. The Center also sets up special " conversation sessions " to help foreign stu- dents with the English language. The ultimate purpose of these minority organizations is two-fold. First-to enable the minority student to adjust to the demands of the University-be they of an academic or more personal nature-and second-to rein- force tne individuality and personal growth of the student from within his own back- ground. 89 man ' s great The University of Michigan brings to- gether a multitude of people from a multi- tude of backgrounds. This is especially ap- parent when it comes to the over-view of religion on the Ann Arbor campus. If there is any word that typifies the religious scene here, it is " exploration " . The unique atmos- phere of the campus offers a wide range of exposure to religious experiences. The stu- dent is able to examine his own true values from within this diverse, liberal atmosphere. Religion is available in its more traditional forms but also exists here in Ann Arbor in more contemporary, modern conditions as typified by the religious communal exper- ience, and by the greater interest in Eastern and occult religions. With regard to specific proportional statis- tics on how many students participate in which religions, numbers are somewhat ambiguous. U of M ' s Office of Ethics and Religion tries to coordinate a " Religious Census " every year but the response is quite limited. The small response is attributed more to a resistance against any bureau- cratic collection of data rather than lack of interest in religion. But even with limited data, it is obvious that there is a tremendous variety in the types of religious experiences present in Ann Arbor. Religious organizations can maintain con- tact with the University through its office of Ethics and Religion. This office coordinates a wide range of services for both these organ- expectations izations and for students as individuals. Counseling, Conferences, extra-curricular act- ivities, educational information all are offered by this Office. Generally speaking, it serves as a communication service to the entire University community. For those who are interested in obtaining information about courses in religion, there is also an Interdepartmental Department of Religious Affairs. Although there is no spe- cific Department of Religion at the Univer- sity, this office coordinates all of the related courses in religion which are offered by other departments. The student does have the opportunity to become a religious studies major. The kinds of religious activities that take place on campus range from traditional services to dinner get-togethers, from com- munal households to political participation in various causes, or to just plain public aware- ness activities of an entertaining nature. For example, a familiar sight on the Diag in the Fall and Spring is the Hare Krishna organ- ization, chanting and dancing to its creed. It would be impossible to mention the over twenty-five religious and spiritual organiza- tions that exist here in Ann Arbor. But let it suffice to say that these various groups all are thriving and will continue to grow as the student body continues its search of religious experience. As we explore our own individ- uality, the quest for our own religious experience will continue as well. A 2 and kids As kids grow up, they no longer imperson- ate their herpes in dreams and fantasies but begin to actively imitate them in real life. They can do it because their new models are no longer adults but older kids. The focus is not so much on particular individuals as on particular life-styles. The kids that grow up in Ann Arbor, because of the proximity of the U are in a most peculiar position when it comes to absorbing new life-styles. Unlike the typical community college, the U is not iust a mirror which reflects the culture of the local youth. The U is itself the pacesetter. Yet a university so large and diverse can perhaps never be said to generate a single life-style, a flavor all its own. And so Ann Arbor kids have a wide variety of models from which to consciously or subconsciously choose. The dress, the dope, the music, and the sex life of the counter-culture, spawned and nurtured by the campus environment, com- bine to form one of the most contagious of university life styles. On any matters per- taining to the youth culture, whatever comes out of the U is the current definitive state- ment on the issue. Childhood fantasies take on an adolescent mold in the worship of university athletics- in the world of letter sweaters, fine physiques, and clothing plastered with Mich- igan insignias. High school kids get a first hand look at what can be theirs (maybe) with " dedication and a competitive spirit. " The intellectual life of the U is thrown upon Ann Arbor kids by the imposing presence of campus buildings and the beard- ed, bespectacled professional types who haunt them. How many out-of-town kids know that all doctors don ' t wear stetho- scopes? How many of them can visit book stores with no ' adult " books, but instead with works by such strange authors as Satre, Hume, Aristotle, or Einstein? Of course, the behavior of college kids probably rubs off on most kids eventually. But those in Ann Arbor see and hear it all first. And perhaps, for good or ill, they grow up a little quicker than out-of-town kids. 92 i 93 -% ' I l?4 I ,fe V V " r ; " ' - % B f V- S 9 TN ' 3 ffH 1 f ts now generally accepted that the Great American Novel nev- er was or witt be written. There is also widespread belief that that other idea, the American Hero, is itself nothing more than a figment of the public imagination. Even if such a hero once did exist in reality, some would say, he [or she] is now long gone from the American scene. And certainly there is some truth to the argument, propos- ed frequently of late, that we live in a society devoid of heroes. Obviously the business leaders of the nation-the Fords, Rockefellers and the rest-do not command the admiration and respect that they did earlier in our history. Neither, it seems, do religious leaders. And in the wake of Watergate and other recent scandals few would contend that politicians on the whole have provided an example worthy of the title heroic. Perhaps no class of people has inspired more of the dreams of American youth over the years than the athletes. Men like Rockne, Louis, and DiMaggio, with their tremendous physical skills and competitive spirits have been an inspiration to thousands, maybe millions, in decades past. But some- times it appears that big money has taken over even sports in America, and lately some of the most talented individuals have come off as dollar-grabbing buffoons. One might expect, or at least hope, that things would be different at the level of collegiate athletics. There, supposedly, will be found competition in its best sense, pitting man against man so that each may tap me limits of his own capabilities, with the outcome of secondary importance. But alas, too often the struggle for personal improvement has been subordinated to an alfout quest for victory and the financial gain it brings. And the " win or else " philoso- phy prevalent in major college sports has taken its toll at the University of Michigan. Pressure to win practically destroyed a promising Michigan basketball squad in 72-73. And a group of athletic directors more concerned with the prestige of the Big Ten than with rewarding outstanding athlet- ic achievement deprived this year ' s football team of a well earned trip td the Rose Bowl At the same time, a very fine UM cross- country team missed out on a trip to the NCAA finals in Washington because it was thought that its chances of winning were too slim to justify the costs involved. The efforts and achievements of Michigan athletes in the major sports should not be minimized. They have performed remarkably well, often in the most unfavorable circum- stances. But the ancient ideas of sportsman- ship might be better represented in the less publicized branches of athletics. Members of UM teams in wrestling, gymnastics, swim- ming, tennis and other sports bear a certain resemblance to the athletic heroes of old. Their skills, developed through years of hard work, are often awesome, and their deter- mination cannot be questioned. The same can be said for those who belong to the various sport clubs on campus, whose rewards are never fame or fdrtune, but more personal, perhaps more noble ones. And even the thousands of participants in intramurals can be athletic heroes in a sense, if by that we mean simply that they strive for me highest level of performance which their abilities attow. bowl vote dims History will remember the 1973 episode of the continuing feud between the Ohio State and Michigan gridiron giants as one of the all-time classics. The number one and four ranked teams struggled to a 10-10 tie to share the Big Ten title for the second year in a row. But in the memories of the Michigan players and fans, the post-game results of that confrontation will go down in infamy. The Big Ten athletic directors voted 6-4 to send the Buckeyes to their second straight bowl game with Southern California. I Above: The M offense takes command during the MSU game.

Michigan for the game had 16 first downs to Ohio State ' s nine. The Blue defense held the vaunted Buckeyes to no first downs in the first quarter, and only four in the entire second half. Denny Franklin, Michigan ' s All- Big Ten quarterback, passed for 99 yards while OSU could not gain a yard via air, missing on four desperation passes in the waning seconds. Ohio had taken a 10-0 lead at half-time. Michigan refused to give up, however, and battled back for a 10-10 tie on a 10 yard touchdown scamper by Franklin, and a 30- yard field goal by Mike Lantry. With 1:01 remaining in the game, Lantry attempted what seemed to be an impossible 58-yard field goal. The ball sailed on an almost straight line and although it had the distance, was inches to the left of the mark. 97 Blue stifles ft pia anl pr ret ID re? ;ro M 1 Above: A back flip for every M point has become a cheerleader tradition.

Ohio, on their own 20-yard line, began unleashing desperation long bombs. Michi- gan ' s Tom Drake picked off the first one and returned it to the Ohio State 33. Michigan, running out of time-outs, attempted a 44-yard field goal on third down. Lantry ' s wind blown attempt sailed wide and the tie resulted. However, the Michigan players ran off the field in a state of elation. They had come from behind and outplayed the supposedly best team in the nation, and had come inches from defeating them. They felt assured that they would spend Christmas vacation in California. For all indications the jubilation was de- served. Woody Hayes said after the game; " We knew we had to beat them to go (to the Rose Bowl). " Unfortunately the Athletic Directors disagreed and voted OSU to the Bowl the next day. Most directors cited Franklin ' s injury as the major force in their vote for OSU. But what caused the resulting controversy was the fact that seven of the directors had not seen any of the game, and another, only the last eight minutes. Ml 99 Victors Valiant! " We ' re Number 11 A particularly irritating aspect to the M coaching staff was the fact that Burt Smith, the Michigan State Athletic Director, voted for Ohio State. Smith said his vote was based on the fact that his coaching staff had told him that they felt the Buckeyes were the tougher team. One argument made for the Michigan cause was that football is a team sport, not an individual sport. In not allowing the Wol- verines a Rose Bowl trip, the Athletic Direc- tors were penalizing the rest of the team because one player, Denny Franklin, had been injured. Furthermore, Franklin wasn ' t part of the defense that did such an excep- tional job in containing the potent Ohio offense. Also, Michigan had three fine backup quarterbacks, including Tom Slade, who led Michigan to an undefeated regular season in 1971. The final result of the Ohio State debacle for Michigan was a lot of hard feelings. Bo Schembechler and Commissioner Wayne Duke exchanged charges. It is probable that Michigan will be seeking revenge against quite a few people in the 1974 campaign. ff( le; A3 Jo: ?er 100 Some consolation was offered to the Wolverines in the post season accolades. Team captain Dave Gallager earned an All- American berth and All-Big Ten honors. Joining him on the All-Big Ten team were junior Dennis Franklin, senior offensive guard Mike Hoban, senior full-back Ed Shut- tlesworth, and Junior safety David Brown. Receiving second team slots were senior co-captain and end Paul Seal, senior offensive tackle Jim Coode, junior running back Chuck Heater, defensive lineman Walt Williamson, and linebacker Steve Strinko. At the annual football bust it was announc- ed that Paul Seal was the most valuable player of the campaign. Seal completed perhaps the most unusual play of the year against Illinois. After Heater fumbled the ball about ten yards behind the line of scrim- mage, Seal raced around, picked up the ball, ang ran it 33 yards for a touchdown. But the awards were small consolation for the Wolverines. As Bo Schembechler put it; " They earned the right to go to the Rose Bowl, and to a man every one of them wanted to go. . .This is the best team I ' ve ever coached.

" was an apt slogan for the 1973 thinclads. Coach Dixon Farmer molded a long awaited winning combination for the Maize and Blue, and the tracksters placed second to Indiana in both the Big Ten outdoor and indoor championships. The prospects for 1974 looked even better. With the exception of the hurdles event, where Michigan lost Big Ten champion Godfrey Murray, Michigan was relatively unhurt by graduation. Add to that such out- standing performers as shot putter Steve Adams and defending Big Ten 440-dash champion Kim Rowe, ana there was no reason why Michigan shouldn ' t be a serious Big Ten contender. The Wolverines also had a fine recruiting year. Probably the biggest surprise of the young season was when junior college trans- fer Dave Williams broke the school record for the 600 yard dash. Other promising addi- tions were Jeff McCleod, a swift Jamaican 440 man; Andy Johnson, the Ohio half-mile champion; and Ken Delor, another state champion, but who ' s eligibility was in question at the start of the season. Other capable individuals back from the ' 73 squad were horizontal jumpers Abe Butler and Pete Hill, half-miler Bob Mills, shot putter Mike Lantry, distance men Keith Brown, Bill Bolster and Jon Cross, along with freshman cross-country sensation, Greg Meyer, and in the decathalon, Roland Jersevic. 104 If two words were chosen to describe the 1973 Michigan cross-country team they might be " unfulfilled promise. " At the end of the 1972 season it seemed things could only get better for the harriers. Coach Dixon Farmer had led them in a re- building program to a second place Big Ten finish, and all runners from that squad were underclassmen. Add to that a couple of junior college transfers and outstanding freshmen recruits and it looked like there would be no stopping the ' 73 cross-country team. But then the roof started caving in. The number four man from last year ' s team dropped out of school. Rick Schott, who had taken eighth in the 1972 Big Ten meet and excelled during track season, decided to hang up his spikes. But perhaps the biggest blow of all was Keith Brown ' s eligibility problems concerning the number of credits he had. Brown, the number one man of the year before, did not receive undisputed eligibility until several days before the conference meet. His uncertain status during the season affected his performance considerably, as he slipped to 22nd in the championship meet, and Michigan chugged into third place. The bright spot was freshman Greg Meyer ' s 20th place finish, which led the team. The following week, in the NCAA region- als, the harriers qualified for the National Championships in Spokane by tying for fifth in a 23 team field. But Don Canham, disap- pointed with the team ' s season performance, decided not to fund the trip to Washington, which ended a rather bittersweet season. 1O5 [Above] In perfect control, an M gymnast performs on the parallel oars.

After captur- ing last year ' s Big Ten title, the Wolverines came back on to their winning ways. Begin- ning the season at Ohio State, the team defeated the Buckeyes 157.95-152. At the Big Ten Invitational held at Crisler Arena, Michigan clearly dominated the other three teams; Ohio State, Indiana and MSU. The Wolverines placed first in seven out of eight events including having the first, second and third place in the all-round competition. At Carbondale, Illinois, the gymnasts finally broke into that all-important 160 mark by defeating the Southern Illinois team 160.1-156.45. Against powerhouse Minnesota, the Wolverines had a decisive 161.7-155.95 victory over the Gophers. Led by captain Monty Falb, the gymnasts are certainly an important threat in the rings. Along with Falb, Joe Neuenswander gives the Michigan team double consistency on the rings. Returning classmen Jean Gagnon, Pierre LeClere, and Bruce Meold continually threat- en the opposition with their awesomeness in the all-round. LeClere, Meold, and Gagnon placed first, second and third respectively in the all-round at the Big Ten Invitational, proving their durability. In the floor exercise, Randy Sakamota and J.P. Bouchard played an important role in building up the Wolverine ' s scores in competition. Sakamoto won the floor exercise event at the Big Ten Invitational. In vaulting, Michigan again has a strong team. Led by Gagnon and LeClere, the team consistently scores over 27 points. On the high bar, the Wolverines are led by stand-outs Carey Culbertson and Bob Darden with Meold holding a strong potential in rounding out the group. Jerry Poynton and Rupert Hansen lead the gymnasts as the outstanding performers on the pommel horse. On the parallel bars, Rick Bigras and Gagnon lead the Michigan team. The Big Ten season ends at Iowa with the Hawkeye team hosting the Big Ten Meet. The Hawkeye ' s home court advantage could be a threat to the Wolverine ' s hopes for another title. 1O7 L grapplers among While public acclaim was still fixed upon Bo Schembechler ' s ill-fated footballers, a determined squad of Wolverine wrestlers began their workouts in the secluded Crisler Arena sweatbox. Known more familiarly as the Michigan Mat Machine, the team in- cluded most of the members of the 1972-73 juggernaut which swept through an unde- feated dual meet season to the Big Ten Championship and a third place finish in the NCAA Tournament. Team captain Jarrett Hubbard, defending national champion at 150 Ibs. and holder of the all-time Michigan record for individual triumphs, was but one of several Wolverines with serious chances for All-American recog- nition. Jim Brown, at 118 Ibs., Bill Davids at 134, soft-spoken 190-pounder Dave Curby and Heavyweight Gary Ernst all had poten- tial to put together the types of individual seasons which can make a year remarkable. It was not as though mentor Rick Bay was without problems. The graduations of 1973 Captain Mitch Mendrygaland Roger Ritzman left serious gaps at the 158 ana 167 pound classes, which would have to be filled before iO jar S?fi2 nation ' s best dreams of National Championships could begin to make sense. Dan Brink, a junior- college transfer with a great competitive spirit, replaced Mendrygal at 158 while Mark Johnson, a freshman from Rock Island, Illinois, stepped in at 167, replacing Ritzman. The Mat Machine began its campaign in a fashion which made even the most wildly optimistic forecasts seem plausible. Consecu- tive maulings of Western Michigan, Ohio University and Pittsburgh were followed by a spectacular performance at the Penn State Invitationals, highlighted by 177-pounder Rob Huizenga ' s upset of Clarion State ' s Bill Simpson, a defending NCAA titleholder. While his charges began cramming for finals, a happy Rick Bay looked hopefully toward the upcoming Big Ten season. " We have the talent to make this the finest season in Michigan wrestling history, " he claimed, " but it ' s going to take a lot more hard work, and well have to avoid any crip- pling injuries.

Perhaps it was a foreshadowing of things to come when in the fall student government elections, Jim Barahal ran for office on a Dump-John-Orr Platform and won. It has been a trend in recent years for sports fans across the country to try and be more than spectators. One of the World Series games in ' 73 was almost forfeited because New York fans threw objects at Cincinnati outfielder Pete Rose. Spectators have nearly demolished ball parks in wild victory celebrations in the last few years. Here at Michigan a law student tried to reverse the Ohio State Rose Bowl decision with a class action suit. In like fashion Michigan basketball fans have reacted to head coach Johnny Orr. His popularity began its downward swing during the ' 70-71 season, and reached rock bottom last year. Michigan had amassed the greatest Quantity of talent since the Cazzie Russell days. They had Ail-American Henry Will- more, super-soph Campy Russell and exper- ienced starters in John Lockard, Ken Brady and the inimitable Ernie Johnson. Visions of beating UCLA were dancing in optimistic fans ' heads. A record 9,000 student season tickets were sold in ' 72 and Crisler Arena was packed for the first game. As the M players were announced the Arena roared with approval. When Johnny Orr was introduced a thunder- ing jeer went up. Perhaps the fans were right in their estimation of Orr, perhaps they were wrong. The team jumped out to an early 3-0 record in the Big Ten, but suddenly fell apart and finished 6-8 and 13-11 overall. The Dump-Orr signs became more numerous at Crisler. 110 i . ultimatum for Coach Orr: do or dit But Athletic Director Don Canham was sticking with his man Orr for at least one more year. The fans responded in perhaps the most effective way: one of the lowest season ticket sales in years was recorded. This was surprising in view of the fact that Michigan had a pre-season All-American in Campy Russell. Michigan fans were perhaps the only ones to ignore this, as Michigan drew heavily in its first two away games, pulling in 7,500 at U of D. Whatever the reason, only 5,000 people showed up in " the house that Cazzie bunt " for the season opener against Southern Illinois. Despite lack of fan support the Wolverines did quite well, staying in control the whole game and winning 86-74. Michi- gan ' s backcourt men looked particularly good. Freshman Steve Grote canned 10 points with some aggressive play, Joe Johnson dumped in 16, and Wayman Britt looked good as a sixth man. C.J. Rupee pleased many fans with his 18 points and 11 rebounds. Campy Russell led all with 29 points. Michigan marched on the next week and squelched Toledo 75-65. Russell was again impressive with 21 points. Wayman Britt loolced his best, coming off the bench for 15 points. But the following week put the damper on the budding optimism connected with the pair of victories when Michigan dropped one to U of D 70-59. Russell was the only player who did well, contributing 26 points. If Michigan was to do better in Big Ten play, they needed more than a one man show. Probably the only thing which could dilute M basketball fans dislike of coach Johnny Orr is a Big Ten Championship. But even that might not be enough. ft 112 Below: Controlling the back- boards, Steve Grote hauls down a rebound. Left above: Don John- son tips in two.

The Wolverines finished the ' 72- ' 73 season with a forlorn 5-28-1 record but the outlook is very hopeful for the 73- ' 7 4 season as an abundance of new faces have appeared throughout the rebuilding hockey regime. The most obvious new face on the Ann Arbor hockey scene is Yost Ice Arena. The former field house that last saw glory during the Cazzie Russell basketball era now echoes with sounds of hockey. The converted campus landmark replaces the Michigan Coliseum that housed the Wolverine Dekers for nearly a half century. Another newcomer to the Michigan hockey outlook is Dan Farrell, looking impatiently for success in his first year at the helm. A flock of fine freshman have established themselves on the ice and will add new life to Michigan hockey hopes. Forwards Pat Hughes, Doug Lindscog, Kris Manery and Gary Morrison all played key roles in early season action in rejuvenating the Wolverine scoring punch. Freshmen bolstering the Michigan defense are Bob Palmer, Dave Shand and Greg Natale. Not all the faces are new on the squad as Farrell had inherited plenty of fine talent that will draw long looks from opposition once their potential is exploited. Don Fardig, Bob Falconer, Gary Karoos, Angie Morretto, Randy Neal, Julian Nixon, Paul- Andre Paris and Frank Werner all are veteran attackers with proven scoring skills. Don Dufek and Gordie Cullen add substantial power to the Michigan offense. Returning on defense are Greg Fox, Tom Lindscog and captain Randy Trudeau. And, of course, last, but most important of all is the goalie position. Sophomore Robbie Moore is expected to guard the twine with deter- mined stinginess. The sophomore made an astonishing 1254 saves last year. 114 Above: Randy Trudeau maneuvers his hock- ey stick for control of the puck against a Notre Dame opponent.

Opp below: Early in the season Bob Falconer scores a goal against ND. $ 115 talented tankers tackle tough task Stripped by graduation of much of its depth, Coach Gus Stager ' s Wolverine swim team has come up with a combination of several outstanding veteran talents and an excellent crop of promising newcomers to maintain its usual position of Big Ten and national prominence. The leading returnee is super-soph Tom Szuba who placed third nationally in the 400 yard individual medley last spring, and anchored both of Michigan ' s relay teams. Szuba, an all-round talent who was a finalist in the ' 72 Olympic backstroke trials and represented trie United States in last summer ' s World University Games. Michigan ' s veteran strength is not confined merely to Szuba ' s exploits. Senior breast- stroker Stu Issac placed sixth in the NCAA last year while his counterpart, Junior Pat Bauer, managed to upset Isaac a nd walk off with the Big Ten crown. Senior Jose Aranha, a member of both the Brazilian Olympic and World University Games teams adds speed to the sprinting corps, while backstroker Chris Hanson is always a good bet to place high in the Big Ten in his specialty. What must oe a pleasant surprise to Wol- verine fans is the development that has been shown by Stager ' s rookie recruits. Freestyler Gordon Downie from Scotland, a veteran of the Commonwealth Games has already become one of the leading middle distance men in the Big Ten and his potential is unlimited. Dearborn ' s Norm Semchyshen is a prime contender for Big Ten and national honors in the not-too-distant future. Butter- flier Fred Yawger and backstroker Rob Kelt have exhibited great promise. Lastly, the contributions of Coach Dick Kimball ' s diving corps can ' t be minimized. Veterans Steve Schenthal, Peter Agnew and Dick Quint together with junior college transfer Don Craine highlight one of the top groups in the country, all continually surpass national qualifying standards during every competition and as a quartet, play a crucial role in Michigan ' s championship plans.

The Athletic Departm ent doesn ' t fund sports clubs; members pay their own way. Lack of funding doesn ' t lower the quality of the competition, however. Some clubs, like lacrosse and soccer, play teams from schools which regard the two sports as inter- collegiate. The water polo team consists of Varsity swimmers, and in winning the Midwest Water Polo Conference and Dual Meet champhionships, it had to defeat teams like Indiana University and Kentucky. The volleyball club regularly plays teams whose members compete for the honor of making the U.S. National Team. Cf - j7v ' GQ f X c S VA r- -tt Sportsclubs provide the opportunity for participation by all skill levels. Many clubs like Boxing, Cricket, Pershing Rifles, Fenc- ing and Tae Kwon Do are more instructional than competitive. The Ski Club has a racing team but also sponsors ski trips around the country. And then there is the Rugby Football Club. One of the more familiar sports clubs around campus, the rugby team annually kicks and shoves and passes its way around Palmer Field against teams from all over the Mid-west. Rugby typifies the competitive desire and determination to survive that rages strong among sports clubs. Onwards and upwards All-American heroes.

Under the direction of newly- appointed Women ' s Athletic Director Mane Hartwig, the women ' s sports of tennis, field hockey, volleyball, basketball, and swimming have been slowly building respectable pro- grams. The synchronized swimming and swimm- ing teams have always been excellent, and so far both have lived up to expectations. The swimmers went to the Nationals last year and Maggie Stevens and cohorts will prob- ably make the trip again in March. The tennis, field hockey and volleyball teams showed definite improvement this year. The highlight of the tennis season was an upset victory over Central Michigan. The field hockey team came close to upsetting topseeded Western Michigan during a suc- cessful season. The Basketball team can only improve on its dismal 0-12 record in 1973.

He was always young, with the charm of Errol Flynn, the looks of Gary Grant, the sex-appeal of Clark Gable, and the athletic prowess of Johnny Weis- mueller. But mainly, the All-American hero got involved. Today ' s youth mav not be good- looking, virile, or muscular, but they do get involved. They are not content to sit back and let someone else do it. The interest in the University ' s Intramural and Recreational Sports Program is proof of this. It is estimated that 27 thousand students make use of the IM programs and facilities available. The number of teams and games played has almost doubled over the last year. Professor Michael J. Stevenson, director of Intramural and Recreation Sports, explains this increase, " The students and faculty have become aware because of anti-smoking camp- aigns, physical fitness programs and ecology programs. They want to get out and do things. Students want to be doing instead of watching. People want to participate. " For those wno want to participate, but not with a large group, IM has a multitude of activities. The nandball and tennis courts are always crowded. People stand in line at 8 o ' clock in the morning for a paddleball court. There is always someone making use of the indoor and outdoor basketball courts. The steady rhythm of the jogger is heard on the track at any time during the day and the water of the pools is never calm. Someone is always there practicing, exercising, or just relaxing. According to Professor Stevenson, these facilities, and others like them, were used more than 340 thousand times last year. This is an increase of 20 per cent over the 1970-1971 school year. And yet this number does not include those students who jog around the block or bicycle through the Arb. 125 discovering the agonies of defeat . 126 4 Below: A co-ed exudes a sense of satisfaction after a completed pass.

" I run two miles everyday because it strengthens my knees and wind; besides I have nice legs. ' " I play paddleball. It reduces pressures and tensions from by heavy class load. " " To use up energy, to be active; it ' s like going to the V-Bell. " I swim because I like sometimes to mess around about once or twice a week. " " Playing sports is an enjoyable activity. It ' s a diversion from school. ' IM is not limited to just non-scheduled, individual participation. Every year it offers over 17 different team sports for students in dorms, fraternities and sororities, or friends who like to play together. These include everything from football and volleyball, to bowling and inner-tube water polo. In 1972-73 IM scheduled 4,700 games for 2,350 teams. The greatest increase in participation in teamsports has been in the co-recreational division. Twenty-four football and forty volleyball teams have been formed this year. All totaled, participation in the co-rec division increased by 400% and is, by far, the most popular. Another increase in intramural participa- tion has been in the women ' s division. The All-American hero has never been character- ized as a woman, but the tremendous involvement in the IM program is rapidly changing the concept. Four years ago, IM offered only two sports for women. Presently twenty-seven are being offered, with more being added. Today ' s youth are not the same as those portrayed in the old movies. But they are All-American heroes in their own right. They are involved and active and ready to parti- cipate. 129 each competed for his place of honor 130 [Below] The high hurdle event starts out as an extremely close race.

The awesomeness of the Big Mamma of Arts in America, New York City, squeezes into the concentrated sunburst of the Ann Arbor art scene. Ann Arbor ' s size allows, within walking distance, the student to learn and delight in the wide variety of the cultural frenzy. Only our imaginations and pocket books limit us in the limitless cultural offerings. For all it is the lively experiencing of a smorgasbord of dance, theatre, and a festival of music. One of the main features of Ann Arbor ' s concert season is the University Musical Society. It contracts top notch concert artists of international fame, and highest caliber orchestras. In addition it provides for the obscure and esoteric tastes music from Iran and Japanese Puppet Theatre. For the clas- sical music lover the Power Center and HiU Auditorium are familiar stomping grounds. Other groups give prestige to the Univer- sity. In the same way theatre Ann Arbor and the University attracts diversity of drama and musicals. The war horses in this field, the Professional Theatre Program, the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre, and University Players, each offer close to six plays each year. This reflects the talents of the university com- munity, and their special ability to create appreciated drama. The beginner may sam- ple the Soph Show, Musket, the Gilbert and Sullivan Society, while the connoiseur may explore the Student Lab Bills. Furthermore this is participatory theatre, involving stu- dent actors, reliving literature, and learning from the experience. The barrage of music begins in early Sep- tember with the famed Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival. The Rainbow People ' s Party has taken the reins in the last year and promises a better show each year as their familiarity and experience in organizing a music festival of its caliber increases, as does their display of unheralded local and Amer- ican talent. The moving force behind most of the city ' s pop concerts has been the University Activities Center. B.B. King, Roberta Flack, Judy Collins, the San Francisco Mime Troupe, Bob Dylan and the Moody Blues were all under uAC auspices. Endless concerts sponsored by the School of Music and the additional unadvertized happenings privileges this University com- munity with a broad sampling of the world ' s living art. Premiers of the new works of art in aa fields and the University ' s breeding of fresh and imaginative artists, marks Ann Arbor as the place to immerse oneself in totally American art. jazz and blues back to basics They came by the thousands - by car, train, or hitchin with a pack on the back, from as far away as California. And Michigan students themselves flocked to the Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival as a final retreat before the onslaught of work from fall term classes. In a way, the Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival is out of place in this time. The day of Woodstock and Rock Concerts as a rally for social protest has come and gone, and students have responded with a sort of dull apathy. But in another way, the Blues and Jazz Festival is a sign of the times. It is a return to the basics - music with a real American heritage, easy listening, and a chance to enjoy the out-of-doors. Yes, this is why they flock here. Blues and Jazz itself is a kind of relief from the complex, energy-producing, elec- tronic music of the day, and in turn, the festival gives one a chance to vent the pressures of everyday living. Human needs never change. And for this reason, although the political and social reasons for having outdoor music festivals may differ each year, The Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival will carry on. 134 a real and a this is lei I, elec- n, the mt the i needs long! ihvear, valffifl 135 F I ?!ich U nd .is Dance Theater 136 bvei 55 th , ' . sensations College days. Through the bedroom win- dow comes the coolness and colors and shadows of a late autumn afternoon. The concentration of study is gradually broken as, faintly, the strains of a familiar song awaken a vague memory, an illusive emotion. Our consciousness passes beyond this fleet- ing sensation to the source wnich sparked it - to the song. And we know that the song is dear to us. Yet we know too that even as we cherish the popular idiom which the song may exemplify, the idiom is not eternal. Dylan, Joplin, the Stones, Simon and Garfunkel speak the language of one generation and are the product of its particular joys and sufferings. Tomorrow there will be a differ- ent language. Today, with its musical idioms, will be a source of nostalgia. But are there no strains of permanence in musical expression and experience from one generation to the next? The University Musical Society, since its founding in 1879, has worked to demonstrate that generations and cultures very different from one another have much to share indeed. From every corner of the globe the UMS has brought the greatest musical talent performing works covering an incredible sweep of history. This season, art lovers could experience Russian symphony, Roman- ian folk ballet, Phillipine dance, modern jazz, American opera - to mention a few delights. Such art is forever new. Thanks to the UMS, the vernacular of our popular musical idioms is now, as in the past, ricnly complemented by the timelessness and universality of the classics. For this, music lovers of the community are most grateful, as their attendance has demonstrated. 137 the stage is no barrier 138 [Top far left] The Detroit Sym- phony Orchestra; [Bottom far left] " Doina " from The Romanian Folk Ballet; [Top right] Awajii Puppet Theater [Below] The De- troit Symphony Orchestra. 139 dance: a study in aesthetics Dance and Mime, two similar, yet distinct- ly different art forms, both revolve around one basic idea: the beauty of non-verbal communication through body movement. This year the University Musical Society has presented a number of fine dance and mime groups, including Kipnis Mime Theater, American Ballet Repertory, and Ballet West, USA (pictured), and dance groups from Siberia, Norway, North India, and The Phil- ippines. It is not surprising therefore that appre- ciation of these art forms shows no social, ethnic, or age boundaries. Students, and townspeople, young and old, seem to enjoy the great energy-releasing expression that dance and mime are. But more than that, observers are almost hypnotized by the amount of self-control involved, and a certain envy of the grace and beauty of the moment. There are few things as aesthetically pleas- ing as the way a performer communicates with his or her body, and the University Musical Society presentations have captured this beauty. 14O The University Musical Society pre- sentations of [Left] Kipnis Mime Theater, [Below and far right] Amer- ican Ballet Repertory, and [Near right, above and below] Ballet West, USA. 141 Near right: Leningrad Philharmonic.

Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. The Society was founded by students and faculty interested in the revival of nine- teenth century English opera. In the fall semester the G. S. Society presented " The Grand Duke " . The perform- ance marked the first time this snow had been presented in the midwest and was a tremendous artistic and financial success, " lolanthe " was produced during the winter semester and proved to be an even greater triumph. The Society ' s success is based on the pure delight it gives the audiences and those associated with the show, whether they be singers, musicians, or stage crew. The University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society is an exciting and vibrant theatrical company, a credit to the Univer- sity and to themselves. 145 146 make your own kind of music Of all the artistic or musical events on the University of Michigan campus, few will raise as much havoc or bring as many fans as one of the UAC concerts. Maybe it ' s the heavy beat, maybe it ' s the excitement, but the concerts always seem to have the magic potential to draw spectators. Unlike other campus events, the Univer- sity Activities Council concerts seem to draw an audience consisting exclusively of stu- dents. However, because of the nature of the show and audience, UAC has consistently faced the hassles of arranging for groups, selling tickets, and protecting the auditorium from its often-intoxicated audience. But UAC concerts have survived, and their variety ranging from the sweet soul music of Roberta Flack to the heavy rock of the Moody Blues is what keeps the students coming. Yes, the excitement keeps life moving, and the melodies keep minds sane. This is why they come. 147 moody blues j pack Crisler Since the emergence of the rock era, Americans commonly frown upon the devel- oping magnetism of rock culture. Many Americans would have sneered at the eight hundred students camping overnight at Crisler Arena for the following day ' s sale of tickets to a rock concert. Ann Arbor ' s Burton Tower carillon echoed six times and faded in the crisp evening air. The number of students at Crisler grew con- tinually; by noon, two thousand comprised the line outside of the arena. In early November when the Moody Blues came onstage at Crisler, as if aware of their loyal Ann Arbor fans they said, " It sure is good ' to be here at last. " The audience grad- ually soared as the five bandsmen enter- tained: Music is the traveller crossing our world Meeting so many people, bridging the seas We ' re just the singers in a rock and roll band. Endowed with the fortune of knowing the band members personally, one Ensian editor was invited to their party following the concert. The party was light-hearted, though conversation became serious at times, cen- tering around what was happening in America. In a thick British accent Graeme Edge, the group ' s drummer, commented on the fact that a Black watchman had first dis- covered the Watergate burglers. With an air of disbelief, Edge said, " Tne lowest man in the land tuppled the king on his throne; it ' s the woodchopper and the prince . . . and that is a fairy story: the lowest shook the highest. " In a world of hard-core, hard drug rock stars it is refreshing to find musicians who live up to their own messages and lyrics. Offstage, the Moody Blues are friendly, com- passionate and gentle people - one would hardly guess that they were superstars. As writers and musicians, the five bands- men master the art of expressing happiness and despair. When the Moody Blues left the stage at Crisler, the arena glowed with thousands of tiny, match flames held high in the air. The tiny torches symbolized admira- tion and respect for a group who give hope and meaning to the rock culture of this generation. 148 Music is the traveller crossing our world Meeting so many people bridging the seas We ' re just the singers in a rock and, roll band. 149 t Al the prof thro six i I repe doe the I Prof | wide well 1 : . dene I form actii : tb merj : oriei : close ISO FTP: theater in Ann Arbor Ann Arbor as a renown cultural center of the midwest is, each year, presented with professional theater companies that travel throughout the United States. In addition to six well-known Broadway hits, distinguished repertory companies appear in Ann Arbor, due to the Univesity ' s interest in expanding the facilities for the performing arts. The Professional Theater Program has created a wide interest among Ann Arbor residents, as well as enlightening the University students to professional dramatics. Three repertory companies were in resi- dence in Ann Arbor for both theater per- formances and to give special workshops in acting, directing, and movement to selected theater majors and graduate students. The merging of students and the non-university oriented, through theater, helped to bring us closer to each other in our cultural setting.

The University Players, a large and diverse group, put on six major produc- tions this year, including Shaw ' s ' St. Joan " , Brecht ' s " Edward the Second " , and Shakes- peare ' s Cymbeline. In addition to these better-publicized pres- entations, other subgroups keep the univer- sity dramatic scene alive. Showcase Theater, a student directed group with a smaller cast, was outstanding in And Miss Reardon Drinks a Little " and in a children ' s theater show " Brave Little Tailor " , which was presented for the younger members of the Ann Arbor community. The Black Theater, which probably in- volves more people from the Ann Arbor community than from the university was involved in " Happy Ending " , a showcase pro- duction, and " Day of Absence " , presented by the University Players. Besides these two more well known theater programs, the University also gives students the opportunity to act in free one-act plays in the Arena Theater. Many of these are produced in conjunction with various University classes. This year U of M was lucky enough to have the well-known author and playwright Arthur Miller in residence. Besides teaching a minicourse, Miller spoke in numerous class- rooms and was involved in the premiere per- formance of a new play he has written. Orig- inally the University had planned to perform " The American Clock " , but due to a sudden interest by Miller in another play he has recently completed, the Theater Program changed its plans. The new play involves a much smaller cast, and professional actors were brought in to perform. Through the Showcase productions, which will be per- forming Miller ' s " The Crucible " , the student cast was given a chance to directly work with the playwright. With the wealtn of opportunity for the stu- dent interested in acting or stage crew work, he or she is limited only by time. But this activity is also the gain of the spectator. Student productions have made the chance to enjoy drama almost unlimited at this University. 154 U players: diverse drama 155 156 Opposite page, left: A scene from the Showcase production of Dur- renmatt ' s " The Marriage of Mr. Mississippi.

Things looked close to catastrophe three days before opening night when Shelia Ann Heyman, one of the show ' s leading ladies, lost her voice and continued rehearsals in pantomine. Luck- ily, Director Susan Fay Groberg was able to step into Shelia ' s role for the opening performance of " Wonderful Town " ana did a more than adequate job. Each year Soph Show proves to be an ex- perience in ingenuity for its cast and crew, so making last minute adjustments was all part of the fun. There are times when nothing goes right for these amateur theatre buffs. It seems like the set won ' t ever be done. Costs are always higher than originally estimated. And why won ' t that damn banner in front of the Union ever stay up? From the try-outs and early rehearsals in September until the Overture opens the curtain in November, Soph Show ' s members sacrifice sleep, nourishment, and grades to that old adage, " the show must go on. " University of Michigan ' s Soph Show is an annual production totally planned and ex- eci Co the tin dei con exi tb felt wit ft Thi Bei I ace. viv. put esp DOS iroi the rew 158 ecuted by the Sophomore class. The Central Committee for each year ' s show is chosen the previous spring, giving these organizers time over the summer to begin plans for the fall opening. Once production begins in October there is little time left for anything but rehearsing. This year ' s show was co-produced by Michelle Becker and Kevin Counihan, who jointly decided with the Executive Central Committee to do Leonard Bernstein ' s " Won- derful Town " , a rather nostalgic musical comedy about two small town sisters ' early experiences in New York City. Kevin says this particular play was chosen because " We felt a show that students weren ' t familiar with would increase curiosity and interest. We wanted to try something innovative. " The Musical Director also favored doing a Bernstein production. Although " Wonderful Town " received wide acclaim on Broadway in 1953, it has not sur- vived as a big name in musical comedy so publicity for this year ' s Soph Show was especially important. Along with the usual posters and ads, recorded songs from rehear- sals were played in the fishbowl to lure potential ticket buyers. Jeff Epstein, head of programs and publicity, ran into some trouble when he advertised in the Daily with the slogan " Leonard Bernstein is Coming to Town " and some readers believed him. With the current Bette Midler and And- rew Sisters craze bringing back styles of the 40 ' s, costumes were easily rummaged from attics and trunks, if not from the actresses closets. Midi skirts, tight sweaters, pony tails, and Zoot suits conveyed an era of excitement in " The Big Apple " . Sets constructed in the SAB ' s workshop and transported to the Power Center a week before opening night, portrayed Greenwich Village in its heyday of starving artists, dancers, actors and tourists. Although Thursday ' s opening night was not without its technical flaws, Soph Show improved with each performance and Sheila was able to step back into her role after the first show. By Saturday night, doors had stopped mysteriously closing on their own, the set pieces for each scene matched, and the cast was able to enjoy performing. Diane Mather, who portrayed Shelia ' s younger sister Eileen, proved to have an exceptional voice and Michael Pavelich in his role as Robert Baker, acted the disillusioned big city writer we all know of. Highlights of the show were Eric Riley ' s role as Valenti, a night club owner and Mark Forth ' s portrayal of Wreck, that familiar dumb jock character. Probably the most important aspect of each year s Soph Show is the enjoyment its members get from participating. In spite of the problems encountered, the cast and crew generally agree that working on Soph Show is a great opportunity to get close to other students at the " Big U " and generally have a good time. As Bruce Kaplan, who portrayed hick, put it, " I don ' t know how good it was but I had a great time doing it. And I ' d do it all over again if I had the opportunity. 159 16O Soph Show scenes Far left, top: Cynthia Sophiea as Violet; Far left, bottom: The Tourists; Middle left: Sheila Heyman in the role of Ruth Sher- wood; Near left, top: Editor Robert Baker and his associate Editors, portrayed by Mike Pavelich, Chris Mooi and Bill Powers; Below: Eileen Sherwood, played by Diane Mather. 161 The University of Michigan ' s school of Music offers a variety of musical programs for it ' s majors, with some opportunities for non-music majors as well. In addition to providing a fine e ducational program, the school enjoys an excellent reputation encom- passing a wide spectrum of entertaining and artistic ensembles. The groups include the Michigan Men ' s Glee Club, the University Choirs, including the distinguished chamber choir, the University Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonia. The Ann Arbor audience, too, has been particularly fortunate to be able to enjoy the fine selection of school of music presenta- tions. With every music student participating in at least one of the performing groups, the variety and numbers are endless. It is us, the listeners, as well as the students them- selves that have profited from the Univer- sities ' fine educational program. Top, near and far right: The Michigan Men ' s Glee Club.

Two such groups are the Arts Chorale and the Choral Union. These groups ' periodic concerts are often in con- i unction with soloists and orchestras, from both University and visiting performers. The Arts Chorale is a group specifically for non-music majors and is directed by May- nard Klein. The Arts Chorale presents several performances each year including a special holiday concert. The Choral Union is a choir consisting of members from all parts of the Ann Arbor community. It presents two big concerts a year, including Handel ' s Messiah and the May Festival in the spring. The abundance of Choral groups at the University have made Ann Arbor an ideal place for those who like to sing and wish to perform. There are choirs for a variety of abilities and backgrounds. For the listening audience, however, the prospects are even better. With the number and variety of choral groups performing at the University, the opportunities to enjoy vocal music are endless. 164 Upper left: Donald Bryant, Choral Union director. Top and far left: The Arts Chorale. 165 concert series draws ovations Joni Mitchell ' s concert on January 26 was one of the more unusual musical events of the year. Most of those who flocked to Hill Auditorium expected to hear the Joni Mit- chell they knew from the recordings: introspective, somewhat melancholy, and almost ethereal. But the partisans were treated instead to songs that could best be described as positively funky. Occasionally the audience found it was hard to stay in their seats-not exactly the mood they ' d anti- cipated. Ms. Mitchell performed several of her well- known songs accompanying herself only on guitar, piano, or dulcimer; the audience seemed to like this part of the concert best. But she seemed to be clearly branching out in other directions, both in new interpreta- tions of old compositions and in her most recent work. A few people were disappointed at the hard-driving, almost jazzy style of much of the performance, in which she was backed up by the L.A. Express. Others were favorably impressed to find that she was indeed flesh and blood. Virtually all were surprised. The concert at Hill certainly dem- onstrated that the old Joni Mitchell image was changing. There may not have been a capacity crowd for their appearance at Crisler Arena, but Seals and Crofts managed to fill the place with the special brand of music which has made them famous. Backed up by the Holy Mackerels, they hypnotized their audience with the exquisitely mellow harmony which is their trademark. Showing their musical versitility on a variety of instruments, they especially delighted their enthusiastic fans with a pair of fine foot-stompin ' bluegrass fiddle numbers. The crowd was clapping and swaying so enthusiastically at the finale that it made the encore almost a necessity. It was such a satisfying experience, that if there wasn ' t a capacity audience, there should have been. Roberta Flack, perhaps the most person- able performer to grace the stage of Hill Auditorium this year, delighted her audience with such songs as " First Time Ever I Saw Your Face " and " You Are The Sunshine Of My Life " . With her wide array of stories and anecdotes interspersed between them, Ms. Flack overcame the size of the large auditor- ium and seemed to bring the audience to- gether as friends. The evening reached a climax for many when Ms. Flack began her recent hit " Killing Me Softly With His Song " . Although her exquisite handling of this tune is well-known, it came as a surprise when the audience was invited to sing along. Soon the entire auditorium was tilled with the strains of the song, signaling the end to a most delightful night. 167 Dylan is back! Bob Dylan ' s much heralded visit to the Ann Arbor left a spectrum of student reac- tions from disgusted to enchanted. The disgust was mostly a result of an extremely mismanaged ticket situation. Enchantment was felt by students who had grown up knowing the poet of the peace movement and finally receiving a chance to view the idol. The ticket fiasco started back on Decem- ber Sixteenth. After several false starts about how tickets would be distributed, it was finally announced that morning that tickets would go on sale later that afternoon. Thousands of students braved cold tempera- tures in a line moving at a snail ' s pace to place their prospective orders. But then administrative problems wors- ened. In some cases students received refunds, others found their tickets stolen in the mail. But most importantly, there weren ' t as many of the cherished $8.50 floor seats being returned as there should have been. A Michigan Daily investigation reveal- ed a large scalping ring located in the De- troit area which had pilfered the best seats and released them at exorbitant prices. But the damage was done, and many students were forced to pay $6.00 for behind-the-stage tickets. Upon arriving at the arena many students were forced to wait in lines for a half-hour in order to get into one of the few open doors. However, at 8:30 p.m. Dylan and the Band came on and many of the gripes were forgotten. Dylan opened it up with a set on the elec- tric guitar, varying and accelerating songs like It ain ' t me Babe " in a way which brought mixed reactions from the crowd. Dylan took a short break while the Band played a few of their big hits, then Dylan returned to finish the first half of the concert. Following the intermission Dylan entered alone with an accoustic guitar which brought a roar from the crowot. The applause was justified, as many students regarded this as the best part of the show. Dylan played the old favorites such as " Don ' t Think Twice " and " A Hard Rain ' s Gonna Fall " , and although the style was still unusual, the old Dylan magic was recaptured. Finally the Band reappeared and helped finish up the concert. " Like a Rolling Stone " brought the audience to its feet, and there they remained until the expected encore " You Go Your Way and I ' ll Go Mine " was finished. Dylan appears ready to do many more pubfic appearances and he certainly would gjt a warm welcome. But hopefully UAC- aystar will take care of the ticket situation in a more rational fashion. 168 the reac- The m up it and dol.

" was more would U 169 nd then there was our spare time. Spare, one supposes, only because it was not already or- ganized, alloted, assigned, or otherwise designated by the omnipotent hand of the Big U. The University, in much the same style as the federal government these days, has the not so enviable reputation of organizing one ' s life to death, if not to perfection, and in the process tends almost inevitably towards the absolute anonymity of the student. All in all, the struggle to survive on any individual level becomes downright titanic as one fights off waves of University regimentation, aim- ed, one further supposes, at the praise- worthy goal of making us all One Big Happy Family. Lost and drowning in an avalanche of such cotton candy philosophy, what dreams of sweet revenge does not the student concoct? In the classic style of the feeble counter attack, many students retreat with narrowed eyes and quaking limbs to the shelter of a group. From within the confines of such organizations there is the security and pleasure of shared experience, and the oravery, if a spurious one, of mutual protec- tion. Undoubtedly, for some, identification with a group is more than anything else, a means of escape from the culture shock involved in confronting a giant cosmopolitan university on its own terms. But for others membership in an organization can be an aid to discovering or defining a personal iden- tity, and a hedge against the evil forces of anonymity. If there is strength in numbers, then surely organizations must be the Atlases of university life, diverse and prolific as they are. Virtually any realm of experience can be explored within their confines. Sororities, fraternities, dorms, co-ops-all provide a stunning cross section of available lifestyles, while mere are societies to suit any individ- ual taste or interest imaginable. Music, pub- lications, sports, politics-no matter where your head is at, there ' s likely to be an organization there too. Taken all in all, it seems that when we look back [if we do!] on our lives here at Michigan, our experiences in the organiza- tions we belonged to may well be the things which will stand out most clearly in our minds. However demanding and tiresome, as all are bound to be at some time or another, they are closely linked to our inner lives. For in some sense the groups we choose to belong to reflect the people we really are. They give us coherence and stature as single entities within the masses of people here, defining us in terms of interest and commitment and hopefully gaining for us a lasting victory [peace with honor!} over the hobgoblin of anonymity. I I a network of communication The extensive communications network in the United States keeps our society informed and entertained. Through radio and TV, Americans hear of momentous events sec- onds after they occur. Last fall, for example, Spiro Agnew (remember him?), resigned at two o ' clock in the afternoon. By three, U of M students were quickly spreading the word. If, by chance, a person misses the news on one medium, another will certainly fill him in. The media also entertain the public, who can see or hear anything from a sports event to their favorite musical performers by simply turning on the hi-fi or the television. An ever-increasing number of magazines cater to our more specialized tastes and needs. But the communications network at the University of Michigan reflects, in miniature, the vast network in America as a whole. Michigan boasts a student owned newspaper and two radio stations. Our yearbook, with its very specialized function, is similar to a magazine. And, finally, university students are visited by lecturers and popular artists each year.

[Above] Ray Catalino and Marc Schermer process ads for our morn- ing paper. 173 iHtrbwnn The Michigan Daily occupies a central position in the communications network of the university society. Christopher Parks, co-editor of the Daily, estimates that 20 to 25 thousand people read this student newspaper every day, which is a sizable portion of the U of M student body. Students can be c[uite vocal about their newspaper. Some, disapproving of the very liberal stance of the editorial page, dismiss it as a " radical rag " . For others, the Daily is the major source of news. Another group could not care less about the news or the editorials. They depend on the Daily ads for information about movies, concerts, and other social events. In contrast to the diverse views of the readers, the Daily organization ' s conception of their goal and purpose is o,uite specific. First, the Daily is an editorial workshop, where journalistically inclined students can leave tne classroom and put their academic knowledge to practical use. In the process, they gain the invaluable experience of work- ing and learning together as they put together a paper six days a week. Secondly, the Daily strives, within the bounds of its budget, to be a professional morning paper. This goal may surprise [right and center] Co-editors Chris Parks Gene Robinson [top center] business mana- ger Bill Blackford, [far right] and staff people, Ettiot Legow, Frank Longo and Chuck Bloom. people who think of the campus newspaper as being totally student-oriented in content. Chris Parks contends, " We try to come as close to the big metro papers as we possibly can. " As evidence, he notes that the Daily has been hooked up to AP wires since 1919. The Daily staff believes that their product should be treated like a general circulation paper with a slant on students. The Daily, since it attempts to be a general circulation morning newspaper, com- petes against the only other general morning 174 i aper lent, eas iibly duct paper in the Ann Arbor area, the Detroit Free Press. Parks claims that the competi- tion has increased this year. Free Press salesmen were selling subscriptions in regis- tration lines last fall. The number of coin- operated paper boxes on campus has been increasing. The Daily asked the Free Press to waive its regional rights to " Doonesbury " , an excellent college-oriented comic strip. The Daily editors thought this strip would be a significant addition to their paper. The Free Press vehemently refused the request. Uafltj " Their attitude was monstrous, " according to Parks. Perhaps this snowballing competition in- dicates that the Daily is being increasingly accepted as a general, rather than a campus, newspaper. If this is the case, the editorial goals 01 the students on the staff are being realized. Competition with the Free Press, then, is a symbol of the Daily ' s success. , 175 I 176 Above: The headquart- ers of a great metropol- itan newspaper. Left: Mary Rafferty, veteran business staffer.

On the other hand, the Michiganensian, U of M ' s yearbook, is strictly a campus phenomenon. Yearbooks are communicative efforts that are seldom found outside of educational environments. Ideas of what goes into a yearbook cannot be found by looking for some analogous publication in the society at large. The contents of the Michiganensian are only limited, then, by its staffs percep- tions of what a yearbook should be. Judging from the rather low sales figures of recent yearbooks (only 1100 1973 Michi- ganensians were sold), the staffs perceptions don ' t seem to have coincided with whatever the student body might have been looking for in a yearbook. Or, perhaps, the yearbook, being a traditional college fixture in an age when tradition is not highly prized, is dying, a victim of changing times. Gary Verlinde, editor-in-chief of the 1974 Michiganensian, doesn ' t believe that college yearbooks are on the way out. As he sees it, part of the problem is that students don ' t really know what they want in a yearbook. " Some still see a yearbook as a vanity publi- 179 cation. If their picture is in it, they ' ll buy it. We ' re trying to get away from this concept. " If the student ' s conception of a yearbook is vague, how does Verlmde expect to produce a financially successful book? " Even if they don ' t know exactly what they want, this year ' s ' Ensian will sell itself. They ' ll like it wnen they see it, " he explains. The editor thinks that, all too often, yearbooks are too self-consciously arty. At the other extreme, some books are just a meaningless inventory of isolated memories. Both of these approaches seem to turn students off. Verlinde hopes to create a book that delicately balances between these extremes. Early in April, just as he was beginning to put the 1974 Michiganensian together, he stated that he wanted a book with visual appeal. " But not one that ' s psychedelic or gimmicky. " At the same time, the book will be a collection of memories, but not memories in isolation. " We want to put the events of the 1974 school year in the perspective of the 1970 ' s. " Verlinde believes this sort of book will be bought by students when they see it. 180 {far top left] A pensive Jeff Chown, ' Ensian copy editor, awaits the return of one of his many copy assignments, [left] Design editor Judy Staschover caught in a rare moment of bewilder- ment, [far lower left] Editor-in-chief Gary Verlinde speaks to his minions at an ' Ensian staff meeting, [lower left] Mary Ann Spagnola, assistant business manager, remarks, " Surely you can come up with a more original idea than that.

The Gargoyle had been resurrected by a staff led by co-editors Tom Field and Jeff Liebster. This campus humor mag had not been seen since the spring of 1969. The style of humor in this year s issues was quite different from the type of joking found in earlier Gargoyles. " Tnis year, the Gargoyle is more sophisticated and sarcastic. We satirize many of the people, places, and things of Ann Arbor. One of our first targets, for example, was college football, " relates Field. This irreverent spirit was held in check by the Student Board of Publication ' s censorship power. " We can ' t use four-letter words or get too raunchy, " says Liebster, " but otherwise we can satirize anything: we want. " The new Gargoyle ' s style was also very much like the National Lampoon. In fact, the editors wanted to change the Gargoyle ' s name to the Michigan Lampoon. " The Har- vard Lampoon people wanted $500,000 and 2% of our profit if we changed our name, " says Field. We would have liked to do it, but we were half a million dollars short, " ex- plained Liebster. Back in November, just as their first ed- ition was going to press, the co-editors admitted that the Gargoyle would be com- peting with other humor magazines like Mad and the Lampoon. " But at twenty-five cents a copy, we ' re confident that sales will be good, ' says Field. " At any rate, we ' ve already covered our costs for the first issue through advertising revenue. The proceeds from sales will be all profit. " Evidently, the Gargoyle stands a good chance of returning to the position on campus it once had. 185 student radio stations offer Students returning to Ann Arbor last fall found that the number of student-run radio stations had doubled. Before the summer of ' 73, the only station was WCBN which broad- casted on both AM (into the student dorms only) and FM (to the entire Ann Arbor area). Since then, the AM station has separated from the FM and become WRCN. Together, these two stations provide Ann Arborites with an extensive variety of musical pro- gramming. WRCN plays " 60 ' s Gold " exclusively. The Program Directors chose this format because they thought it would have a special appeal to the many underclassmen in the dorms. Judging from the listener response, they were right. The programming on WCBN-FM is much more varied. During the course of the day, an avid fan can catch segments of folk, jazz and blues, progressive rock, and even clas- sical music. In addition, WCBN covers local news extensively. Last fall, for example, they broadcasted debates about the tuition strike. 186 varied programming Obviously, WCBN and WRCN do not try to reach every student all the time. Accord- ing to Pam Cukor, business manager at the station, " We ' d rather serve the needs of every student group at one time or another than have a format that would reach a majority of the students all the time. " In addition, because of the special nature of much of their programming, U of M ' s campus stations dp not feel that they directly compete with commercial radio outlets. " No one in the area has anything like our folk show, jazz and blues segment, or WRCN ' s 60 ' s gold format, so we don ' t really feel we ' re competing, " says Cukor. Since WCBN is non-commercial, and the advertising revenues from WRCN aren ' t enough to cover operating expenses, these stations are not self-supporting. Currently, they receive $15,000 a year from the Regents through the office of the Vice President for University Relations. This office, however, has refused to fund the stations after June 30, 1974. These campus radio outlets must find a new source of funds within the univer- sity. The staff is hopeful. Cukor says, " We ' re confident that we ' ll find another place in the U of M bureaucracy. " Fans of WRCN and WCBN hope that sne ' s right, because with- out outside funding these stations, run for and by students, will be forced to shut down. Far top left: News director Greg Bowman.

Poetry, prose, drama, photography, and graphics submitted by students, faculty, and alumni filled its pages. " It ' s really a shame that, until this year, there wasn ' t an issue of Generation since the fall of 1970, " remarked John Paval, Genera- tion ' s editor. " The Ann Arbor community is just full of great literary talent that has not been tapped. " Last fall, Paval was confident that the 1973-74 issues of his publication would be financially successful. " Let ' s face it, the material in this magazine will be so good that there won ' t be any competition. " In any event, a student-run literary journal for the Ann Arbor community and by the Ann Arbor community has finally come back to the University of Michigan. 189 UAC seeks student approval UAC is probably one of the most mis- understood organizations on campus. John Robison, administrative vice-president of UAC, comments, " When you mention UAC, all people ever think of is concerts. We ' re much more than that. " Indeed, concerts are among the most visible of UAC ' s activities. This year concerts sponsored by UAC-Day- star (technically, a legal entity separate from UAC itself) gave students a chance to see such popular stars as B.B. King, Judy Collins, Stephen Stills, Alice Cooper, The Moody Blues, and Bob Dylan. Over the past few years, the quality of performers that UAC-Daystar has brought into Ann Arbor has been improving. Robison explains, " We used to try to bring in a wide variety of per- formers, now we are just concentrating on getting the big stars into Ann Arbor. " In addition to putting on concerts, UAC helps plan and support art shows, home- coming activities, dorm dances, sock hops, lectures, Musket, and the Soph Show. Ideal- ly, UAC sees itself as a resource center. Any student who has a good idea can come to the UAC offices and explain it. If the idea has merit, UAC will lend financial and adminis- trative aid. For example, during the summer of 1972, Mike Naimark walked into the UAC offices on the second floor of the Union and told them that he thought a series of lectures about the future would be a good idea. Mike ' s idea became the popular Future World ' s lecture series which oegan in the winter of 1973 and was repeated in 1974. Where does UAC get tne money to help sponsor this wide range of activity? " Not many people realize it, but we are tuition- funded ' , says Robison. " When we sponsor a concert we only try to break even, we ' re not out to make a profit. In fact, we expected to lose money on some of our smaller ventures, like last year ' s dorm dances. " Since UAC does use student funds, their officers feel that they are particularly obligated to bring [Left] Mark Thomas, [above left] Chris WJiite, pres. [above] John Robison, [right] Sue Billmyer, [far right] Laurie Greig. 19O the best performers and lecturers to campus. They also feel that it ' s their duty to help sponsor any worthwhile student activity. In the 1972-1973 school year, UAC tried to help finance so many activities that they ran into some financial difficulties. " We blew the budget last year, " admits Robison, " so this year we have to operate on about half of our usual funds. " UAC may have operated at reduced strength this year, but chances are that it still made possible more activities than the average student realizes. { . Cf ' ' l " uvn cneenormomli 191 GREEK LIFE Four years ago, when present graduating seniors first arrived at the University, fra- ternities and sororities were a dying institu- tion. Each year more and more Greek houses were forced to either take boarders or close their doors. The last four years, however, have seen an upswing in the number of students opting for the Greek style of living. In fact, it could be said that in certain areas of this campus the Greeks are now thriving. Factors in this upsurge are numerous. Relaxed initiation rites are an example of a new Greek perspective. The emergence of coed fraternities is another. But probably the most important is that Greek living offers an alternative to the mechanical loss of identity that goes on at an institution as large as the U of M. Greek houses are places where one can develop a number of close friendships, when many other people complain of the iso- lation involved in apartment living. Despite the positive elements of Greek life, however, it is the choice of a minority on this campus. In fact, some Greek members feel there is a prejudice against them. This could date back to the ' 60 ' s when many became disillusioned with the exclusiveness of fraternities and sororities. Now, however, it seems the sometimes abused policy of black-listing has finally left. It is hard to determine whether this is the result of fewer applicants, or a more humane perspective by present Greek members. The GreeK way of life has its advantages, and there is no reason why the current upswing should not continue, given that past abuses do not recur. 192 Top row, left to right: Jim Allen, Tim Peterson, John Robinson, Jim Gravelyn, Kestutis Miskinis, Brian Cojocari, Jim Dulas, Bob Bradley, Scott Wilson, Dave Robinson, Marc Schiller, Steve Mills, Tom Haling, Tom Diroff, Paul Fuhs.

Sure, there were all-night- ers before finals, ridiculous tui- tion raises, that awful Rose Bowl decision, and other minor calamities, but one cannot help but feel at least some regret for a smatt portion of our lives which now becomes but a memory. Yet it is a memory that will come to be savored as most students enter the world of the working adult. Perhaps an 8-to-5 job will make the life of going to classes and learning look more appealing. The student ' s life at times borders on Utopian. He is set in a society of peers. While none of them have enough money, none starve either. The responsibilities of marriage and children for the most part are off in the future. Entertainment opportuni- ties are all within walking distance. And the atmosphere of intellectual activity makes one ' s mind ripe for development. The reactions of seniors to their departure from the academic life is quite varied. Some are glad and anxious for new opportunities and challenges that await them. Others are frightened and worried about whether they wul find a career that they will enjoy ana whether the changes placed on their life will be for the better. In a sense it is like the feelings these same seniors felt four years ago as they left the adolescent years of high school for the young adult college years. Some were sure they would make me grade. Some were glad to leave home, others were apprehensive about the new life ahead. Most of these seniors arrived here in 1970. That year proved to be the time when the campuses finally quieted down. The BAM strike and U-Cellar strike were over, and the Viet Nam war was winding down. Freshmen soon settled into the life of studying for Calculus 115 exams or writing papers for freshmen composition courses. One sentiment voiced by many graduating seniors is that it seems tike only yesterday that they entered the Big U when actually it was 8 1 2 years ago. Many things happened in that period: tuition skyrocketed, student favorite George McGovern lost the Presiden- tial election, the ensuing Watergate mess, the opening of cultural relations with Russia and China, 18 year olds getting the right to vote and drink, students electing a black ex- convict SGC president, his surprise resigna- tion, the John Lennon ana Bob Dylan campus visits, and many more important events. But this unique section of our adult life where perhaps our responsibilities and obli- gations are lesser than they ever will be again draws to a close. Many seniors have little idea what they will be doing a year from now. And others witt continue their education on a higher level. Only over the years will we be able to judge whether these were " the best years of our life " , but certainly they will remain unique in our everchanging life styles.

This year, as in years past, not all grad- uating seniors are around twenty two years of age and just four years out of high school. In fact an increasing number of graduates start and complete their university curricu- lum after long periods of raising families and earning a living. Two such remarkable sen- iors are Mrs. Martha Van Norman and Mr. Marion Smykowski. Mrs. Van Norman, a 52 year-old English major, took the advice of her college-edu- cated husband, son and daughter and em- barked upon a course of studies to eventually culminate in a full time teaching position. Among her accomplishments were six months of study in England and a brief stint of student teaching in Brighton High School. Upon reflection she was quick to point out that she found her experience at U-M most rewarding, with her best learning coming from her contact with other students ana professors and not out of books. Mr. Marion Smykowski last December culminated his bachelor ' s work which began fourteen years ago. Graduated with a Gen- eral Studies degree from the Dearborn campus, Mr. Smykowski intends to either tackle the job market or pick up more courses in subject areas such as math. He stated that his college sheepskin may not land him a better job in a market that demands bright young people, but potential employers now invite him to " sit down and talk " , and he says that helps make it all worthwhile. One thing Mrs. Van Norman and Mr. Smykowski emphasized was that college can be a special time in anyone ' s life but that the University was not a place to be unless a person really wanted to be there. Both have journeyed perhaps a longer and tougher road than most seniors and in any case they, like all seniors, are to be salutea. 248 249 NANCY R.

W- 3Jjjjft 279 1 K The word " yearbook " seems to conjure up strange thoughts in the minds of University of Michigan students. Yearbooks are a reminder of high school ego trips and teen- age romanticism. Obviously it would be naive of the 1974 Michiganensian staff to emulate the high school yearbook format. Our concerns are varied, our feelings complex, and our trends indicative of our developed personalities. All that the editors of this book can hope to do is to record, scrutinize, and compare the elements that seem to form the consciousness of the student body, its environment, and its effect on others. If the total product seems to fall short of its goal to put the University and its parts into a greater perspective, hopefully the reader can at least find in these pages a few feelings, a few facts, a few friends that will help him piece together a memory of a part of his life. Sometimes our past tells us a lot about ourselves. The members of the 1974 Michiganensian have devoted many, many hours to something they have felt is worthwhile. Only you will be able to decide if it was, and maybe only in twenty years. Personally, I am not sure how you will accept it. I cannot see clearly through my inherent romanticism to make an objective appraisal. But I can safely say that, as a whole, the Ensian staff is happy with their work and the Ann Arbor-University of Michigan experience! Gary Verlinde WALSWORTH Mircelille.
