Tourists will drive through the park, and the white hunters will be on hand to see that they don't roll down a window or—perish!—open a door. Shuster says convertibles will have to be left at the gate, where air-conditioned hardtops will be available. In fact, Shuster recommends that all visitors use the hardtops. Otherwise it's liable to get a bit stuffy.

Last week Chipperfield and Shuster found out just how stuffy things can get: their plan to import 20 white hunters violates U.S. immigration laws, which require that you must first ascertain that there is no equivalent local help. But if they advertised for white hunters, they would run afoul of antidiscrimination laws, which forbid advertising specifying race. So they took this ad in the Palm Beach Post Times, the New York Daily News and the New York World Journal Tribune:

SAFARI GUIDES�to patrol 640 acre wild game preserve in Florida. Min. 3 yrs exp, preferably in African bush, handling lions, elephants, hippos, rhinos, etc.

Thus far they have had replies from a zoologist and a man who "has experience with large dogs."

HORIZONTAL POWER

Marquette lost to Southern Illinois in the NIT finals, but they wore the winningest uniforms in the tournament—blue with three gold horizontal stripes, including one which took up the top half of the pants. The uniforms were designed by Mike Micheli of Milwaukee, who calls his firm Motivational Design, for "design which moves an audience."

After watching last year's Wisconsin high school basketball tournament, Micheli was unmoved. The sport was fast, but the uniforms didn't seem consonant with the tempo, and it was hard to distinguish one team from the other.

So, borrowing from football, surfing and racing-car styles, Micheli came up with uniforms "which match the pace of the game." He even filmed them and was gratified to see "broad bands of color moving with the game."

Says Micheli: "Small up-and-down-the-side stripes are effeminate. Stripes should be bold and horizontal to reflect power basketball—the game today."
