Trudy Lou Yarnell, former Miss CMU and now reigning National Cherry Queen was mistress of ceremonies while Kathleen Linda Bell, Miss CMU 1972, crowned Flynn. Flynn, a sophomore majoring in physical education did a pom-pom routine to the song "76 Trombones" for the talent competition. Not only does she win a $300 scholarship and a $250 wardrobe, but "also the chance to Compete ,in the Miss Michigan Pageant this June and the National Cherry Queen Pageant in June, 1974. During the impromptu speech ■ portion of the competition* Flynn remained- calm as Yarnell asked her what is the role of a stereotyped "girl jock." Flynn answered, "'•Although I frown upon (the term "jock" as such, I am proud to be in physical education. Women physical education majors are stereotyped muck like, the role of the 'dumb football player.' To me there can be beauty in everything if you look deep enough. There is just as much beauty in dribbling a . basketball as there is in playing a musical instrument." Flynn, a 5'10" blue-eyed brunette, has been a member of the U.S. Cheerle'ading Association for the last two summers. She has traveled throughout the state with the Association teaching cheerleading at various clinics. She is interested in all sports, ■ and says basketball is her favorite. fit was the most precious experience I have ever been a part of," •Flyhn said. "There was not one bit of , caddishness and everybody was ? plugging for everybody else. Without that the pageant would never have been what it was." Not having eaten all week because of the excitement Flynn said after'the pageant*."I'm going to go and eat the most fattening thing 1 can." the polling places. Rivard said he and Kathy Sewjcyck, Benton Harbor junior and resident of the house sorted the ballots there. . .Ballots in the election were on computerized voting forms and after being sorted by the elections director were to be taken to Warriner Hall to .be tallied by computer. LIFE learns of 'bag' , ■ CM LIFE first learned of the bag Friday morning when Duncan, Mike Holland, Mt. Pleasant junior and Coleman brought the bag into the LIFE office. Also present was Ann Kozachik, Oxford sophomore and resident of the S, Franklin house, Pete Holmes, Oxford freshman, and Rivard. Kozachik, later explained how she found the bag, "I came home Thursday afternoon and saw a green bag in the kitchen by the garbage can. Later when I was taking the garbage out I looked in the bag and saw some yellow pieces of paper with numbers on them and some green computer forms with names on them." . Kozachik said she thought nothing of it Until her boyfriend told her what the ballots looked like. They later went back to her house and gave the ballots and other contents of the bag to Holland. Kozachik* also said that Wednesday her room ate, Sewcyck, came home in the afternoon (Wednesday) with a state car she said had ballots in it. When questioned on the matter, Rivard said Sewcyck, who was helping in the ejection, picked up the lunch-time ballots at Beddow- Sweeny, Saxe-Herring and Woldt- Emmons just after noon Wednesday. "When I . came back (to the University Center) the ballots were sorted in the way as to go through the computers and I think Kathy probably sorted them in front of the poll workers at the boxes. We then turned them over to Warriner Hall." "The off-campus polling stations at Anspach and the UC closed at 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. We sorted out those ballots in my office at the UC. These ballots went to Warriner around 5 p.m.," Rivard siad. "The dinner ballots were picked up between 6:30 p.m. .and 8:30 p.m. by Kathy Sewcyck and me, he said. "We did not sort them at the UC because there were too many people around and Kathy wanted something to eat, so we went to her house at 1018 S. Franklin and sorted the ballots there. Ballots left at Warriner "We turned the ballots into Warriner in staggered quantities Official zip code may speed up mail Mail service for CMU may be speeded up as of July 1, according to Roger L. Sanders, executive assistant to the vice president of business and finance. Official University mail may be .delivered to the ^capipftS njailroom approximately two hours earlier as a result of a new business zip code which the University plans to employ. According to Sanders, the campus will be given a different zip code rather than the present set of numbers which the whole area of Mt. Pleasant uses. v The new zip code, 48859, has been petitioned for and Sanders has been informed that the granting of the new code "is just a matter of routine." The decision will be finalized when the new zip code book comes out around July. Because the new zip code applies only to official University mail, . students are urged not to use the code. Sanders warned, "If students use this code it will slow up their receipt of mail." In further explanation, he noted that mail addressed to students which use the new zip code will be rerouted and sent to the Mt. Pleasant mail office. From there it will be sorted into dormitory and apartment mail bags and then it will be delivered to the student. Under the present system, all mail arrives at the Mt. Pleasant mail office either at 4:30 a.m. or 6:30 a.m. It is then brought to the campus' around 9 a.m. - Mail pickup is taken directly to thJffca'nSiijjiif m£il Rftfce where it is * sorted and sent to the various cities according to its zip code. All mail posted in Mt. Pleasant, including the mail addressed to people in Mt. pleasant, is sent to ' Lansing unless it is mailed in a box labeled "Mt. Pleasant Only." Students may speed up their mail delivery within the city by posting their letters in boxes labeled "Mt. Pleasant." and I went over to Warriner with the ballots while Kathy stayed at the house with the rest of them," Rivard said. When asked about the ripped ballots found in the green bag Rivard explained they were the ones which were invalid. "When a person makes a mistake on the ballot he is supposed to rip it up and place it in the ballot box," he said, "There are less than a dozen in the green bag and I don't see them as very relevant. "Also the Robinson ballot box does not have a key to it. We tried to pull some of the ballots out of it but they were tearing so we got a screwdriver and took the top of the box off," Rivard said. A second bag, however was discovered later Friday, also by Kozachik, in a different garbage can at her house. This bag contained 26 ballots, four being blank and /22 ripped or crumpled. Both bags together contained 57 ballots, 24 blank ones and 33 ripped or crumpled ones. When questioned about whether blank ballots were at Sewcyck's house, he said, "There were no blank ballots at the house, there is no way that anyone could get extra blank ballots. This is the sixth time I have said this, there were no blank ballots, Most of the blank ballots were destroyed as they were supposed to be." When confronted with 20 blank ballots found in the first bag, Rivard said they were probably extra ballots put in the ballot boxes at the individual dorms.

Other agenda items include credit no credit policy and reports on teaching effectiveness and student evaluation of faculty. All Academic Senate meetings are open to the public. Full house greets African novelist' By Dave Talaga LIFE Staff Writer Chinua Achebe, African novelist, criticized African authors- who neglect African society and write to "win applause from Western circles." In his presentation .Thursday to a full house in Moore Hall's Kiva, Achebe said these African authors feel called upon to save Europe and the West. "A man is never more defeated than when he runs away from himself," Achebe said. He mentioned in particular the African writers Ayi Kwei Armah and Christopher Okigbo., Achebe said Armah saw himself to be & writer and not an African writer and Okigbo felt there was no African literature, just good and bad writing. But Achebe said Okigbo achieved African inspiration just before his death in an "anguished journey back from alienation." Achebe also criticized the supporters of art for art's sake. He said many people believe a, true artist should ignore society and, in effect, humanity. "Art is and always was meant to be in the purpose, of man," Achebe said. Folowing Achebe's lecture here was an informal question and answer period. John Pfeiffer, assistant professor of English, introduced Achebe as "Simply one of the greatest novelists in the mid-20thj century." Achebe is a visiting professor at the Uhiversity of Amherst in Massachusetts. He was brought to CMU under the College of Arts and Sciences Visiting Scholar Series.
