Oregon High School students wanted to find out exactly how their classmates felt about the schools that are supposedly serving them. Several students took the time to take a survey of their classmates and they covered all areas of school and education. Here are a few of the results. . . .46% feel that academically the school is boring, another 43% are not content with the education that they are receiving;. 47% feel that the students council is not representing them in the least. Three-quarters of the students feel that they are powerless when they attempt to control their own lives. One student felt so strongly that he commented, "The administraron. They re fucked up. They're a bunch fat raisins wallowing in bran flakes. " It seems that students all over the Rainbow nation are feeling the need to control their education and their futures. One organization here in Ann Arbor that is helping to make this a reality is Youth Liberation Front, they have become a great energy force here and could become an even higher force.

We found a little history of butter, and knowing that everyone is so accustomed to having butter, we thought you'd be interested in finding out the history of your foods. The Hindus did not eat butter but offered it as a sacrifice in their worship. The Greeks and Romans had butter too, but they used it as a remedy for injuries to the skin and for a hair ointment. In fact as late as the 17th century butter was found in medicine shops only! Since butter has a high cholesterol count the less eaten the better. Strange that it's only in the last three centuries we started gobbling it up!
A courageous sister scared off an armed rip-off artist Saturday as he tried to hold up a house for the second time in one night. This dude had already forced his way in earlier and taken four dollars and a half-gram of hash, but apparently he wasn't satisfied, and came back, put a gun to a brother's head and demanded more money and or dope. This time, though, the ferocious barking of Woody, the three-legged wonder dog, alerted a sister in an upstairs apartment, and she picked up a gun and came down to deal with this dude. The would-be rip-off man, when confronted by this brave sister, took off running like a scared rabbit and hasn't been seen since. All Power to the People's Defense.
