Greg Emmanuel Raise Your Voice 7 The 21st Annual Hash Bash By the size and character of the crowd, you might have thought that Jerry Garcia himself was playing on the steps of the Graduate Library on that gloomy April Saturday. But the crowd of more than 4,000 mostly tie-dye clad people sprawling across the Diag and spilling out into the surrounding streets did not gather to enjoy tunes in the concert-like atmosphere, but rather to celebrate the annual Hash Bash. By Greg Emmanuel To spread the word about the positive aspects of marijuana and to protest laws against the use of the drug, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) again sponsored the annual Ann Arbor Hash Bash in early April. Through testimonies and scientific studies, marijuana-advocates spoke out from the steps of the Grad to the thousands of students, residents, and transients who crowded into to the Diag to support NORML and to anyone who joined the mass out of curiosity. The Bash proceeded despite an attempt by the University to squelch it by denying NORML their permit for use of the Diag on the day of the rally. Students closely followed the court battle that ensued. " The University should just accept that Hash Bash is going to happen, " said one student, who wished to remain anonymous. The court, acknowledging NORML ' s right to free speech, dismissed the University ' s com- plaint and ordered the permit granted. Despite NORML ' s legitimate reasons for the event, many who attended merely used the opportunity to smoke marijuana in public. Ann Arbor police and University Department of Public Safety officers wandered through the crowds and the surrounding streets handing out tickets. The once legendary Ann Arbor $5 fine for possession no longer a reality, police followed state law and handed out fines up to $100. In addition, officers made approximately forty arrests. Neva Sherman, a university junior, was arrested along with a friend of hers for passing a joint. " The cops harassed us the whole way and we were not even smoking. I think it is because there was the addition of University police that there was more trouble this year than last, " commented Sherman. It must be noted that not all university students supported NORML and its cause. A large population of students stood strictly opposed the event. Sophomore, Danetta Hicks completely avoided the Diag that day and expressed sentiments shared by many others saying, " It (Hash Bash) promotes drug use and is a ridiculous event. " 10 Michigan Life As is usually the case, people travelled from all over the country to attend Hash Bash. Many of those who stayed the night opted to find comfortable campsites , such as this man who staked a claim to a small section of Nickel ' s Arcade. The scene from the Graduate library steps: a sea of people stretching down toward Rackham. Despite the cold, gloomy weather, more than 4,000 people attended Hash Bash. Hash Bash always attracts rare individuals from the wide expanse of the universe . We could not determine if this man was ' Vermin Supreme " or if he was campaigning for someone else by that name. Those who opposed Hash Bash and marijuana use for any reason included a religious group whose members took turns competing against the loud speakers, expressing their opinions about the event and those who attended. Police patrolled the parameter of the event and wandered through the crowd, handing out tickets occasionally, but mainly ensuring that all went smoothly. One officer, who asked not to be named, commented, " Jt has been a mostly peaceful event. No major problems. " ' Michigan Life 1 1 Runnin ' in nothin ' Twelve years ago, twelve Varsity crew members celebrated the last day of classes in a most unusual way. At 12:00 midnight, they stripped off their clothes, and, holding their oars high above their heads, they streaked through central campus. They had no idea what they had started. By Heidi Messner On April 22, 1992 between 500 and 1,000 anxious participants met at the corner of South University and Washtenaw and ran what was called the Naked Mile. Varsity crew member Fred O ' Brien, junior, explained, " My friends and I decided that if one of us did it, we all were going to do it. So at 1 1:50 they came to my house and we went. " While some were already nude, the rest stripped off their clothes and threw them in the back of a truck which they would meet later. O ' Brien said in the moments leading up to midnight, " There was a count- down, everyone was screaming. Then we started running. " The massive group ran from the corner of South University and Washtenaw, through the West Engineering Arch to the Diag, then to the steps of the Art Museum where photographs were taken. At this point, the crowd dissipated, though some continued running past the Union to spin the Cube. " It was a lot of people, and about 95% guys packed together like sardines. It was pretty gross, " stated Randy Logan, sophomore, who is proud to say that he was one of few who ran sober. He added, " With between 5,000 and 10,000 people watching, after a while it became no big deal. I do remember seeing Jalen Rose as I ran by him. " According to the Ann Arbor police station, indecent exposure is a misdemeanor and punishable by a maximum fine of $500 and 90 days in jail. However, no arrests were made on April 22. In fact, the police even helped with the organization of the event. " It was weird to see cops blocking off the streets, " said Logan, " at least I knew I wasn ' t going to get arrested. " However, at Princeton University one week later, eighteen people were arrested in an event that is similar, yet far smaller, than our Naked Mile. O ' Brien stated about the evening, " It was a cold night so the most disconcerting point of the evening was the turtle-head effect. " On the other hand, Randy Logan said, " The best part was seeing the expressions of the little kids in cars that I passed. " He added, " I did it because I like new and crazy things. It is definitely an experience. Something fun that you do in college. " Plans for the 1993 Naked Mile varied but all prospective runners were excited. " Since I am a runner, next year I ' m going to try to win it. I want to be up front, " stated Logan. His plans were far different than Mark Stimson ' s, a junior on the Varsity crew team, " I ' m going to run with my phone number on my back, ' If you like what you see, call. Limited openings avail- able. ' " All Naked Mile photos courtesy of Tamara S. Psumy 12 Michigan Life ' ' The crowd has receeded to allow these streakers some room. " It was a lot of people, and about 95% guys, packed together like sardines, " said participant Randy Logan. Thousands of spectators push forward to gape at the brash racers. Many people held cameras above their heads to snap what pictures they could over the crowd. Crew team members hold oars above their heads just as the Naked Mile founders did over a decade before. These nameless, naked students are just a few of the estimated 750 that particiapted. Their course began at the comer of South University and Washtenaw and concluded at the steps of the Art Museum . Michigan Life 13 Art fairs = delightful distraction Students often complain that it ' s impossible to get to classes on time when they live as far away as the Hill or it ' s snowing in mid January. But if you think that ' s a challenge, try maintaining a steady pace toward East Engineering or the UGLi while passing some of the best art and music Ann Arbor and the country has to offer. By Adam Hundley The annual Ann Arbor Art Fair was too much. Too tempting for most students to concentrate on summer courses, that is. They put classes and studying on hold and wandered through street after street of exhibits featuring the best of American art and culture. But for those hardy few who could think only of impending exams and sliding GPAs, the long trip across campus proved a veritable odyssey of temptations, obstacles, and distractions. As these academic warriors set off for morning classes, they were first greeted by thousands of automobiles parked on all manner of yards, driveways, and street curbs. With thousands of visitors arriving in Ann Arbor every hour, many fraternities and sororities, businesses, and private houses provided parking facilities for a modest fee. The Triangle fraternity on Washtenaw made almost $1,500 charging $5 for unlimited parking each of the four days. Students who managed to successfully navigate these automotive labyrinths next confronted the fairs on South University, State Street, East Liberty, and several side streets. Time was of the essence here, as over 400,000 shoppers crowded the streets and made progress slow and difficult. And the distractions were many. Over five hundred art booths displayed such treasures as African finger pianos, porce- lain tropical fish, and Japanese waterfalls. Musicians staked their claims to vacant street corners, playing everything from kettle drums to electric violins and singing everything from French ballads to classic rock. And dozens of vendors sold old favorites like cotton candy and rare treats like Caribbean fruits along the sidewalks. It was simply no use for students to tell themselves the art and music didn ' t appeal to them; scarcely a single taste went unrepresented during the four day extravaganza. Finally fighting their way through the crowds and reaching central campus, students still found formidable obstacles in their paths. Near the libraries and business school over 60 non- profit organizations distributed information and enlisted support. Their banners and posters proclaimed their convictions: " ERA won ' t go away, " " Feed the people, not the pentagon, " " Abort the supreme court. " And dozens of local artists took advantage of the passing crowds to sell T-shirts or to demonstrate their musical, juggling, and dramatic skills. " It ' s like a circus, " said Detroit resident Ann Lashway as she passed a man riding a unicycle under the West Engineering Arch. Those brave few who finally made it to their calculus lectures, philosophy discussions, and library carols did their best to forget the many distractions. They shut the windows to drown out the music on State Street and South University. They bought sodas and candy to make up for the exotic foods they passed by. And most of all, they thought over their busy Monday to Friday schedules and grateful that the Fair remained open through Saturday afternoon. This jewelry artist admires her work on a prospective cus tamer ' s hands . ]ewlery , especially silver goods , were more abundantly displayed than in past years. 14 Michigan Life V I ' When the crowds were light, the artists found diversions such as this sketch artist who played the banjo. Wandering minstrels were a popular attraction in addition to the booths. Thursday brought rain that hindered the crowds. However, many people merely donned rain coats and headed out, like this woman and her husband, taking advantage of the crowdless streets to marvel at the colorful paintings by L. Geyer. Parking is never easy in Ann Arbor and during the Art Fair, spots were even ewer and farther between. Fraternities, schools, and churchs, such as the First Presbyterian Church, converted their properties into parking lots, using the fair as a fundraiser. Michigan Life 1 5 Preacher Mike belts out his message on the Diag. " You ' ve got to respect someone who gets up in from of a thousand kids, " first-year student Sarah Friedeberg said. 1 6 Michigan Life A Controversial Campus Personality Has His Say For eleven years, Reverend Mike Kaulk, or " Preacher Mike " as he was more widely hailed, has amused, outraged, and even befriended students on the Diag with his sermons. While some may have thought that it took an extraordinary personality to speak to the masses, Preacher Mike really considered himself a down-tO ' Carth type of guy. By Heidi Messner Reverend Kaulk, 43, never saw himself as controversial, although he admitted that the Bible always results in controversy. Instead, he intended to steer students in the right direction. He saw problems with the pressures that face the younger generation, namely fear about students ' unstable future, both economically and otherwise. The father of five, Reverend Kaulk described himself as a " family man. " Family, he claimed, was " the most important element missing in America today. That is the basic building block. Everything depends on it and nothing can replace it. " Accordingly, family values was the topic that he discussed most frequently as he believed repairing the family unit should be the country ' s top priority. His gathering of students varied, but respect for Reverend Kaulk was heartfelt. " You ' ve got to respect someone who ' s so dedicated, " said Sarah Friedeberg, a first-year student. Melissa Grego, also a first-year student, said, " It ' s important to believe in something. It ' s cool that Preacher Mike is that to some people. " Jonathan Wilson, sophomore, agreed, " I appreciate what he has to say because I hear so little of it at campus here. I think he speaks the truth and I ' m glad he has the guts to do it. " However, not everyone agreed with his ideas. As a matter of fact, one would more likely find students who resented Reverend Kaulk ' s hell- fire Diag sermons and who condemned his condemnations. Indeed, those lovely fall and spring afternoons that found Reverend Kaulk preaching from a Diag bench always found opponents counter-charging and disputing with the preacher. According to Reverend Kaulk, whenever a dispute arose, he would try to ascertain if the person was sincere, if he had hit on a subject that was too close for comfort, and then acted accordingly. Despite such careful tactics, negative feelings persisted towards him. " He makes contradictions about his belief. He says he ' s a Christian, but he puts himself higher as a non-sinner. If he was a real Christian, he would know that God forgives everyone even if they do sin, " stated Rachel Margedian, first-year student. Nevertheless, Preacher Mike envisioned himself as giving a fresh perspective to students that they didn ' t otherwise receive in the classroom, " I would really like students to do two main things. Firstly, find out who God is and, secondly, figure out who they are and be that person. " 41, Michigan Life 17 - ' " t Take note, my friend Since the late 1970 ' s and the early 1980s, the United States has been overwhelmed with cases of Human Immune Deficiency Virus (HIV) and it ' s result, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). HIV belongs to a group of viruses called the lentiviruses, " lenti " meaning " slow " . By Cathleen Eckholm Most lentiviruses show appearance of the disease only after roughly one third of the animal ' s life span. HIV has two forms, HIV-1 and HIV-2. HIV does not behave as a normal lentivirus in the respect of actual appearance of the disease AIDS. It may take a month for AIDS to infect the victim or it may take up to five years. AIDS is acquired because it can not be transmitted by casual contac t. An exchange of body fluids must take place, through unpro- tected sexual intercourse, mother to fetus, intravenous drug use with dirty needles, or blood transfusions. Blood that is donated is tested very extensively and it is now extremely uncommon for someone to receive infected blood. Lentiviruses such as HIV produce infections that continue for years. HIV, like the Greeks in the Trojan horse, hides in human body cells and is invisible to the body-just as the Greeks soldiers were invisible to the Trojans. At the right moment the virus emerges and spreads from cell to cell. The difference is that Troy fell in only one night, while HIV takes years to conquer the human body. The way that HIV damages the body, or in a sense takes it over, starts with invasion of the cell. After the cell has been invaded, the virus starts reverse transcription, which causes many mutations and forms many different viruses. The viruses do not differ that much, but enough to make it different and behave differently than the original virus. The ultimate goal of the virus is to get its single stranded RNA to become part of the double stranded DN A of the cell. This will in effect be replicated as part of the DNA and passed on through cell reproduc- tion to insure the replication of the virus. HIV starts with the cell, but in the end ruins the immune system of the host. It does this by destroying the Tcells of the immune system that produce antibodies, since the antibodies can not be made to attack foreign proteins, sickness will take over the body. Most AIDS patients will die from pneumonia. HIV and AIDS education became somewhat more prominent in the early 1990s. Health classes, media, and parents helped spread the word about the terrible disease. Leah Fredman, LSA first-year student, said, " I learned every- thing that I know about AIDS from my parents and a little from health class. " But for less- informed parents, the media served as the biggest educator. Amy Labriola, first-year engineering student, said, " My parents were learning about AIDS with me. It is such a relatively new disease, they didn ' t know that much about it either. We have learned all we know from the media. " Even with the spread of AIDS education, prejudice against HIV victims persisted - some parents remained fearful of sending their children to school with infected kids. Sam Dudek, LSA first-year student, dismissed that myth, saying, " Knowing all that I know about AIDS, I really don ' t see going to school with an AIDS victim as a health risk. " Indeed, younger people seemed a targeted and receptive audience of most AIDS-awareness promotions. Senior engineering student, Jeff Zilmer commented, " It ' s ridiculous that some parents keep their kids out of school because another child has AIDS. I think people our age are aware of the myths about AIDS and dismiss them. I think the older generation has not been as exposed to AIDS awareness as the younger generation. " 18 Michigan Life Blood samples are tested for HIV at the Medical School. Signs warning, " Caution , Biological Hazard " hang throughout the lab.

Photo by Molly Stevens story by greg emmanuel 20 Michigan Life from grunge to industrial to hip-hop, the 90 ' s saw the rise of so-called alternative music into mainstream popularity. Alternative groups such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana hit the charts alongside Whitney Houston. Lead by the garage band-turned-supergroup Nirvana, the city of Seattle became a hot- bed for music and culture. In an issue of Rolling Stone, the city was described as " the forefront of the country ' s musical consciousness. " Flannel shirts, ripped jeans, and Doc Marten shoes, all associated with the Seattle scene, became the uniform for the youth culture. The movie Singles, a comedy-love story directed by Cameron Crowe (Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Say Anything) also helped to promote the stardom of Seattle as the soundtrack broke the top ten with music from Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Smashing Pump- kins. Because of the popularity of these bands, the major labels scrambled to sign the " next Nirvana " offering contracts to young, virtually unknown groups like Helmet and Pavement. The Lollapalooza tour also helped to promote alternative music. The second year of the tour, headlined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who received tremendous commercial success with their ballad " Under the Bridge " , remained as popular as the first tour featuring the now-defunct Jane ' s Addiction. As the most successful tour of the summer, Lollapalooza 2 proved that the alternative genre ' s popularity was here to stay. Russell Levine, a U of M student who attended this summer ' s concert, said that " it was the musical diversity as well as the festival atmosphere that lended to the day ' s excitement. " The hard-core industrial act Ministry was widely believed to be the best act on the Lollapalooza bill. Ice-Cube, commented to Rolling Stone reporters concerning Ministry, " I love this shit. Anything hard edged, anything parents want to ban and get rid of, I ' m with that. " Combined with the success of Nine Inch Nails from a year ago, the loud angry beats of industrial music, previously listened to mostly by college students and alternative music fans, found its way onto mainstream radio air-play and Arrested Development ' s founder, singer, lyricist, and producer.

The once-a-week alternative music program " 120 Minutes " on the music video channel expanded to include a nightly one-hour show featuring solely alternative bands. Hip-hop and rap also continued to enjoy mainstream success. In the tradition of Public Enemy, rappers Ice-T and Ice-Cube, as well as new- comers House of Pain and Cypress Hill, faced an ever-expanding listening audience. " Rap " group The Beastie Boys created their own genre with the release the their third LP " Check Your Head, " one of the most innovative albums made in many years. By mixing rock-and-roll, funk, and rap, the Beastie ' s album was a favorite among college students. The Brooklyn, N.Y., natives proved rap could be performed with live instruments, as well as clever rhymes and back beats. Similarly the popularity of the group Arrested Development showed the intelligence of hip-hop music as their danceable anthems spoke to the political and social ills of society. What did all of this mean for the future of college music? Some fans of alternative music grew angry because of the popularity of their genre. Those people who had been following bands like Nirvana and the Chili Peppers before they achieved mainstream success felt betrayed. As Brian Cliff, chief announcer at U of M ' s campus radio station WCBN, com- mented " Five years from now no one will give a crap about Seattle or bands like Pearl Jam. Besides, they are not alternative, they are promoted by the same people that promote pop music like Boyz II Men. " The popularity of alternative music and its progression into the mainstream has left room for new bands and new genres. The veterans of the local garage-band scene, such as Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., and the once-college-turned-pop stars REM, have proven that some of the best music is made before the addition of a big budget and slick production that comes with major label record contracts. The infrastructure remains intact and one has only to retreat to local radio and clubs to find the freshest young bands whose raw talent and enthusiasm may someday promote them into becoming, for better of for worse, the stadium headlin- ers of tomorrow Anthony Keidis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, known for frequently preforming with his bandmates wearing nothing but a strategically- placed sock, wore bicycle pants this time out on the Lottapalooza tour. The Red Hots are pioneers in the fusion of rock and funk and have finally enjoyed the commercial success that they deserve.

Her gritty pop sound combined with sweet girlish crooning make for an endearing combination. Hatfield played at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor which often features young alternative acts. Photo by Greg Emmanuel Hatfield also made an appearance before her Blind Pig show at Wherehouse Records. Fans who showed up to the store were treated to an acoustic set of unrecorded songs as well as songs off her solo album. Juliana also signed CDs and spoke briefly with fans.

Kennedy, who spoke on the steps of the Michigan Union in 1960, Democratic Presidential candidate Bill Clinton stood on the steps of Rackham Graduate School on October 19 to speak to thousands of students and community members. He spoke of the courage to change and also outlined his proposal for an internal peace corps which would enable college students to finance their education by doing community service upon graduation. Many students saw Clinton as the JFK of their generation, hoping that he oukl be the inspiration for change and a more promising future for the United States. Many had lost hope in the government and in the so-called American Dream. Support for Clinton escalated as Election Day drew near; students banded together to create a victory tor Clinton Gore. College Democrats were on the forefront of the H Clinton Gore campaign with phone banking and literature dropping. Along with these strategies, they brought in several esteemed speakers, such as Governor Ann Richards of Texas and Michigan Congressman Bill Ford, to promote Clinton. Before the Michigan primary elections, Hillary Clinton spoke to a group of welcom- ing students at the Law School about her husband ' s policies. " She was well received and people were very impressed with her energy, " said College Democrat Dan Friedenzohn, an LSA senior. College Democrats worked vigorously during the Michigan primary elections in order to get Clinton on the ballot. " There ' s less voter apathy in this election, " said College Democrat Rachel Blum, an LSA senior, " If students get out there and vote, they can really make a difference. " w Many students supported Clinton because they believed he had a greater chance of making nece sarv changes in the government. " Because both houses arc Democrat, " said Ryan Fringers, an LSA freshman, " there will be a more productive working relationship within the government. " Fringers was interested to see how Clinton would act on all his proposals made during the election. Students were hopeful and excited about the promise of a new and energetic president. They proudly posted Clinton Gore signs around campus and spread the word to all their colleagues about the prospect of a new president. " Clinton is young and represents our generation, " said Blum, " He commands respect. " Clinton was not the only candidate who offered change, however. Ottering a more drastic plan for governmental reform and a whimsical sense of humor to boot, Texas billionaire Ross Perot entered the race to the surprise and cheers of many students. Perot ' s efficiency in the business world exemplified his possible role as president: " He ' s possibly one of the best business Continued on page 30 28 Michigan Life In the bitter cold.

Michigan Life 31 The infamous rock ({tainted between three and five times per night) has been a landmark to the Greek system as long as anyone can remember. Here, the rock displays quite a different message that will be replaced before morning by another fratemityor sorority . Greg Emmanuel Ever y fraternity and sorority participated in some type of philanthropy, although the social Greek systems, especially the Panhellanic Association , were often the target of critics who claimed the organizations ' members merely went through the motions of philanthropy , sewing it as a price to be paid for the right to party all the time. Leticha Hamlet of Zeta Phi Beta participates in a bucket drive to raise money for her sorority ' s philanthropy. I V.

Sororities and fraternities stress the bonas of friendship and loyalty that the Greek system brings to the individual. 32 Michigan Life To be or not to be? To rush or not to rush? That was the question. For many first and second year students, it was a question that they could answer easily. For others, however, the decision to sign up or not turned into a horri- fying, sleep-threatening dilemma one that stemmed from the ever present debate on campus regarding the value of the Greek system. By Greta Grass During the fall, U-M saw the issue spotlighted frequently on the opinion page of The Michigan Daily. In a letter to The Daily, LSA senior, Jim Chapman criticized sorority " brats " for their " noisy " and " obnoxious " behavior during bid day festivities. Chapman ' s complaint spurred many responses, and the controversy heated as letters flooded The Daily ' s forum. Many anti-Greek students calling themselves G.D.I. ' s (God-Damned Independents) ques- tioned the legitimacy of the system. Did sorority women engage in fake friendships, and did they invite males to indulge in sexism? Did fraternities operate by the infamous " Animal House " standards, and were frat parties simply arenas for excessive alcohol consumption, free sex, and the exploitation of women? Gary Dawson, an LSA sophomore, decided not to take part in the Greek system. " I guess there ' s nothing wrong with it, " she said. " But I really don ' t see any benefit in [joining the Greek system.] " Another student, Chris Bruno, LSA junior, stated, " It forces some people to spend all their time with one group. " Those involved in the Greek system, however, defended fraternities and sororities as being places that provide support, life-enriching experiences, and most importantly, friendships. " For a young pledge entering this incredibly large university, the Greek system is a great way to make college seem more personal, " said Laura Hansen, an LSA senior and president of U-M ' s Panhellenic Association. Greeks maintained that the fraternities and sororities were not superficial caste systems favoring the socially elite, but rather opportunities to become involved in leadership, scholarship, and philanthropy. A.J. Todd, an LSA sophomore, has had a very positive experience as a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. " My frater- nity life has been a lot of fun. I ' ve enjoyed the brotherhood and the good times we ' ve all had together. The weekend festivities aren ' t too bad either. " Although the tensions between the Greeks and the G.D.I ' s were heated and intense, the controversy did not see one camp emerge as an undisputed victor. " When you wait to rush as a sophomore, you realize that Greek life isn ' t all there is at this school, " said Jerilyn Bell, an LSA junior who did not join a sorority. " For many people it ' s a great family to be a part of, but it bothers me when I see girls getting upset because they think they have to do it, because it just isn ' t true. " Maricel Schneider, a first-year engineering student who decided not to rush this year, agreed. " It definitely isn ' t for everyone. But if it ' s right for you, I think it can really be benefi- cial. " It eventually became apparent that getting involved in the Greek system was a matter of personal preference and personality. The key lesson lied in respecting every student ' s right to make his or her own decision. To rush or not to rush? That was the question ultimately answered by the individual. Michigan Life 33 Celebration Of A Rich Culture After months of effort and careful planning, Latino-Hispanic Heritage Month proceeded without a hitch. The month-long celebration of culture featured events such as film series, guest lectures and dance workshops. The activities created a casual atmosphere where the entire community could meet and learn about Latino culture. By Melanie McLean and Myrna Jackson V - .. Other ways of celebrating the richness of these cultures included an Art Exhibit at the Ann Arbor Public Library, as well as a poetry reading by the Puerto Rican poet, Pedro Pietri. The culmination of these month-long activities was a " Gran Baile Final " , where students could socialize while taking part of the Latino- Hispanic culture and be immersed in the richness of the music and dance. She described it by saying, " It ' s cool! It ' s great. There are few activities offered during the year. It ' s great because we can get together and enjoy our music. " On the evening before the dance, a work- shop on Spanish dancing was held for those who were not familiar with the dancing. Four dances, the Salsa, the Merengue, the Cumbias, and the Rancheras, were taught. These dances were first introduced and a slight history given. After a demonstration, the participants were then asked to split up into groups to learn the specific dance. Ana Diaz, a senior who helped in the organization of the event said, " This is something that the organization has worked very hard on to educate and promote our culture to the entire student population. This dance workshop is a way of promoting our culture by sharing our music. We ' re trying to educate other people. It is a way for other people to become more comfortable and more at ease. " For all who came it was a fun evening and a great preparation for the festivities of the following night. Although the Latino-Hispanic Heritage Month lasted only from the middle of Septem- ber through the middle of October, activities continued throughout the year. Workshops and Latin parties were held at least once a semester. The celebration of this month enabled all who participated to be exposed and to learn more of this rich culture. In having activities such as these, the hope was that the university commu- nity will gain an understanding and apprecia- tion of other cultures and people. Jessica Rodriguez, a junior, said, " We have put in a lot of effort in planning these activities, and we have come together through our time and planning activities. We have blended more and have had the opportunity to meet other people and to share our cultur e with the world.

" There ' s really nothing wrong with sex in advertising if... it is used for a specific prupose and it is used with taste or wit. The question is ' When is sex in advertising appropriate and when is it a cop-out? ' " Her message was a far cry from Jean Kilboume ' s. 36 Michigan Life Advertisers targeting women? Sexism in Advertising was a Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC) dialogue sponsored by Zeta Phi Beta sorority. With the dialogue, SAPAC first presented a Jean Kilbourne video that edu- cated the participants of the program on some of the advertising tech- niques used to trick consumers into buying commercialized products. By Myrna Jackson " Understanding sexual assault requires an understanding of a culture that accepts the victimization of women. As part of this society, advertising, among other things, perpetuates certain images of men and women which create an atmosphere conducive to victimization. The average American will spend about a year and a half of his or her lifetime watching T. V. commercials alone, and in one day is probably exposed to two thousand ads. Repeated exposure to the message conveyed in these ads results in an acceptance of what is seen in advertisements as " natural " and " normal. " - SAPAC Some techniques Kilbourne pointed out in advertising were ads of women using make-up to cover every aspect of their body, and therefore were being taught to loathe and disgust them- selves. Being thin was very important because that meant that there was less for a woman to loathe. Children were being used as sex objects as another advertising technique to ' show consumers how " grown-up " an innocent child could be. Many of the recent commercials were showing little girls wearing make-up, trying to get the essence of looking sexy, and this type of advertising promoted incest and child molesta- tion. Every part of the body was altered in commercials. And if sexism was not enough, women of color were taught to be as white as possible, wearing white, and made-up with the same color make-up as white women. It was with no wonder that in this country 80% of all fourth grade girls were on diets, and one out of every five college women had weight problems (anorexia nervosa). Women were trivialized in advertisements, not as people needing care, or having emotions, but being portrayed as things. As a result of America ' s attitude, this country remained behind the ranks in social progress, and ranked in the top ten for familiarity violence. With sexist advertising it was not surprising that 40% of the women in America who were killed were killed by their boyfriends or lovers, and 90% of all rapes occurred from familiarity. That was the inevitable effect when you turned a human being into a thing. The stereotypes did not stop at women. Although men were given a more relaxed feeling about their bodies than women, sexism still existed. Kilbourne pointed out that men were made to feel as if they had to have ongoing sexual prowess. Kilbourne used an example of an ad of a woman walking on the street and a shadow passing over her. The woman had a smile looking at the shadow. According to Kilbourne, the smile on the woman ' s face symbolized a desire to be raped, and society to expect this kind of a response from a man showed no social progress. The responses from those that attended the workshop did not vary much. Nursing sopho- more Renita Hannah reflected, " Discrimination against women who are heavier than the usual thin, long-haired woman is wrong just because they are physically beautiful. " President of Zeta Phi Beta and Aerospace Engineering junior Ladonna Davis said, " I think there ' s a lot more going on than before. After watching the video, I ' ll be more aware about things. I ' ll be more careful about buying what ' s trying to be sold to me. " LSA senior and SAPAC member Karen Miller said, " It sucks. I think it ' s more complicated than it seems. Sexism makes women feel horrible about their bodies and categorizes both men and women. " Michigan Life 37 Are they the ultimate? When Maya Agarwal, a first year engineering student, was asked how she felt about the U-M MSU rivalry she replied, " It stems from the fact that in today ' s society we feel the need to be superior to others and it just so happens we are superior to State in every possible way. " By Cathleen Eckholm and Sarah Fette Ahh... Michigan Life. There were so many things that made up Michigan Life. And of course, it was different for everyone. There were classes, Greek life, extra curricular activities, night weekend life, a little work, a lot of sporting events, and the U of M MSU rivalry. Spirts ran high for students from both campuses during the big weekend. MSU ' s Todd Ohmer, visiting a friend for the weekend ,had little fun retrieving his car from the pound. Hindsight would reveal that the vehicle had been deposited into the street, MSU license plate intact, by unknown culprits. Maryette Williamson, LSA sophomore, registered an opinion about the mysterious removal, " I ' m glad that this school is so spirited, but I was a little upset to find that people on the " M " campus would act in such a destructive way. " Kier Cannon, junior at MSU in Mechanical Engi- neering, echoed that view. " During the big weekend, I felt like a strange man in a foreign land. I also had an odd suspicion that U of M students disliked students from MSU. Residents of South Quad had the experience of extra security during the U of M MSU weekend. The locks were changed on the back doors and the front doors were monitored by RA ' s and RD ' s. The residents and their accompanied guests were only allowed to enter the building. Two residents of South Quad commented on the extra caution security during " the " weekend. Linda Jubb, LSA first year student, " I really don ' t know if the added security was necessary, I wasn ' t here that much due to being in marching band. " Erin Sullivan, LSA first year student, " The atmosphere didn ' t seem hostile because State knew they were going to lose, so they used the weekend in Ann Arbor as an excuse to party. " When students from both school ' s were asked how deeply the rivalry affected them and what it meant to them there were mixed emotions. " U of M MSU game just proves once again who ' s the best " , Shannon Williamson, LSA first year student. Mark Allen, pre-med first year student at MSU, stated his feelings about the rivalry as, " I feel that U of M and MSU are the two best schools in Michigan, and the rivalry is the result of both schools trying to be 1 . The rivalry gives my peers and I more school spirit. " Babinec explained, " Some students here wear anti-U of M clothing, but Spartans also endorse U of M by wearing maize and blue. The shirts from both schools can be crude, but one has to look at it as just another way to capitalize on the traditional sports-based rivalry. " Some students felt very strongly about the rivalry, for instance, they would never wear anything that resembled the color of the " other " school, then some students shared equal support for both U of M and MSU and wore both school ' s attire, although they refrained from such " cross- dressing " during the big weekend. Mike Dehner, nutrition senior at MSU, said, " The rivalry has no meaning to me at all. It is irrelevant in terms of education and every other aspect. " Bruno Bui, first year LSA student replied, " I think it ' s a ploy between the two schools to earn extra money through commer- cialization. " The U of M students thought more strongly about the rivalry than the MSU students. William Tompkins, junior in journal- ism at MSU, asked, " The question I ask about 38 Michigan Life These Wolverine fans remain true to the maize and blue tradition.

It is irrelevant in terms of education and every other aspect. " Bruno Bui, first-year LSA student replied, " I think it ' s a ploy between the two schools to earn extra money through commercialization. " Michigan students thought more strongly about the rivalry than the MSU students. William Tompkins, junior in Journalism at MSU, asked, " Why should I give myself over to unhappy negative thoughts about a fellow institution of learning when we are all Americans anyway? " An RA in Wonders Residence Hall at MSU, Susan Logan, senior in Music Education, informed all her residents this way, " Education should be the focus of someone choosing a certain college, not sports, which is what I believe the rivalry is mainly based on. Both schools excel in differ- ent areas, therefore I think the rivalry is unfounded. " The morning of October 10, 1992 finally arrived and brought a damp, dreary chill to Ann Arbor. On what should have been one of the most spirited days of the year, University students groggily rolled out of bed to half- heartedly adorn themselves in maize and blue attire. Perhaps it was the cloudy sky and the cold temperature that gave this particular football Saturday such a slow start. Perhaps the haunting memory of the last home game against MSU plagued the minds of students. Perhaps the 3:30 PM game time did not encourage early morning rowdiness. Or maybe the night had just ended for some students three or four hours earlier. Whatever the reason may have been, the morning of the Michigan vs. Michigan State game was no different than any other Ann Arbor Saturday. As the kickoff time drew progressively nearer, the day gathered momentum. The sun emerged from the morning ' s foreboding clouds and warmed the blood of the Wolverine and Spartan fans. Preparties and tailgate feasts began to spill out of lawns and parking lots into the streets of Ann Arbor. T-shirt vendors sprung up on every corner, selling the tradi- tional Spartan-bashing garb, including " State Sucks " and " Friends don ' t let friends go to Michigan State " . Bold visitors from MSU, wearing every imaginable hue of green, and t- shirts saying " Muck Fichigan " , paraded down the streets. By 3:00 PM, it seemed as if the civil war of the football world was in full swing. The game itself sparked the natural animos- ity between Michigan and Michigan State fans in the stadium. Chants rang through the crowd both from Michigan and MSU fans. Jeff Holzhausen, a first-year student at Michigan described the rivalry between Michigan and Michigan State as " a good vs. evil, no holds barred, annual grudge match for state bragging rights. " Tammy Banhidy, Civil Engineering sophomore at MSU, explained, " The rivalry doesn ' t affect me very much, except on game days when Spartan spirit is in the air. But on every other day I don ' t think twice about it. " As the game progressed and Spartan fans grew more and more embarrassed, yawns and contented sighs escaped the mouths of the Wolverine supporters, who became drowsy with superiority. As Emily Travis, a first-year student at State succinctly explained, " This year was more of a joke. It was obvious that you (Michi- gan) would win. " Although State held the Wolverine football team to one of the lowest scoring games of the season, it seemed that there was never a doubt about which team would prevail. To help ease the defeat of MSU, a few students did special things during the big weekend and at the game. Kimberly Sitz, first- year LSA student, claimed, " I showed my spirit for human kind by refusing to participate in anti-State chants and trying to retain my school ' s integrity by only participating in positive support of our team. " Cathi Rhynard, first-year LSA student, said, " I really didn ' t do anything special, but I did pay attention to the game, a little. " Students who purchased tickets at the last minute paid a pretty penny for them. The price range generally started at $50 and went all the way up to $175 per ticket. Was the high price due to the popularity of Michigan football or was it because it was " the ultimate rivalry game " ? Beckie Vance, first-year LSA student, said, " The football ticket prices were outra- geous! I think it was because it was the U of M MSU game. I ' m glad I bought season tickets at the beginning of the year! " Every year, no matter how destined for victory Michigan may have seemed, the showdown with Michigan State always gener- ated a great deal of spirit and friendly conten- tion. " There will always be that rivalry, " said Dawn Stampsly, a first-year MSU student. Even with a final score of 35-10, die-hard Wolverine fans were never to humble to bask in the glow of a solid Spartan defeat. Michigan Life 41 HAIL Homecoming Sparks Spirit The " Grandest of Traditions " proved to be an appropriate title for the 1992 Homecoming. The week ' s events generated excitement among students and rekindled fond memories for enthusiastic alumni. By Sarah Fette Throughout the week, the Diag was the focal point for much of the action. Students heading to classes enjoyed daily musical entertainment during the noon hour. Raffle tickets benefitting the Ronald McDonald House were available for sale, and local merchants sponsored an item count contest featuring many spectacular prizes. " I ' m a regular on the Diag, and I definitely noticed a change in the usual atmosphere during homecoming week. All of the events and promotions brought people to the hub of the campus to soak up some Indian Summer rays and check out the action, " said LSA sophomore Catie Hughes. The week ' s publicity and activities culmi- nated in an even more spirited weekend. During the noon hour on Friday, the Go-Blue Pep Rally on the Diag featured Head Football Coach Gary Moeller, along with fall athletics coaches, cheerleaders, and University alumni. Later that afternoon, students had the opportu- nity to both release pre-midterm tensions and contribute to charity by participating in the Evans Scholars " Car Bash. " LSA first-year student Terra Hahn commented, " It was really strange to walk out of Angell Hall and see a crowd of people gathered around to watch a car being smashed. It definitely broke up the daily monotony of going to class. " The festivities resumed Saturday morning with the 58th Annual Mudbowl between the Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Phi Delta Theta fraternities. The Mudbowl also featured a football game between Kappa Alpha Theta and Delta Delta Delta. " I had a great time cheering for all of my muddy friends before heading out to pre-party for football. The Mudbowl seems to be a lot of fun, but it ' s also a fierce competi- tion, " said Anne Comisar, an LSA sophomore. For the alumni, the homecoming traditions are just as exciting. " I always have a great time coming back to Michigan. I ' m one of those hard-core alums with the maize-and-blue plaid pants, and I love it, " said William Fette, LSA ' 66. The presence of alumni made homecoming special for many students. " I love having our alums come back to the house (Theta Chi) to talk about their wild and crazy college days. We were definitely impressed by their stories. If it weren ' t for returning alumni, I don ' t think homecoming would be any big deal, " said Engineering sophomore Al Browning. The Wolverine ' s easy victory over Minne- sota in Saturday ' s Brown Jug game was the perfect clincher to a festive homecoming. The football game was just one more reason for students and alumni alike to feel such a sense of pride in the University. 42 Michigan Life For the alumni cheerleaders who return every year to pump up the student crowd, there is nothing more exciting than putting on that old maize sweater. This dedication to tradition is just another reason that students take tremendous pride in Michigan. Celebrating touchdow n after touchdown, the Wolverines did not disappoint the fans who jammed the stadium for Saturday ' s game. The easy victory over Minnesota for the famed Brown Jug was the perfect clincher for the festive homecoming. Students had the opportunity to both release fire-midterm tensions and contribute to charity by participating in the Evans Scholars " Car Bash " .

The protesters stormed the doors of Hill in efforts to disrupt the debate . Brute force was used by security and police were immediately called to calm the crowd. Police were called to the scene to quiet the unrest that erupted outside before the event began. The tension delayed the event ' s beginning by about twenty minutes. Greg Emmanuel Daryl Gates , retired Los Angeles police chief who resided over the police force during the L.A. riots, debated his and the force ' s position in crime prevention and enforcement today. His laid- back attitude infuriated most students. However , the event succeeded in creating heated discussion as was intended by the UAC. 44 Michigan Life DEBATING THE FORCE The decision to bring Daryl Gates, retired Chief of Police of Los Angeles, and Nadine Strossen, the first female president of the A.C.L.U. (The American Civil Liberties Union) to campus sparked wild debate. The November 19 event, sponsored by UAC (University Activities Center) was profoundly denounced by the BMC (Baker Mandela Center). By Heidi Messner UAC ' s justified its decision to bring Daryl Gates to campus in a brochure stating, " This event was created to express growing concerns about the practical application of criminal justice in our society... The sponsors of this event would like to apologize to anyone who was offended by the decision to invite Mr. Gates and Ms. Strossen. However the basis of this decision was that the debate would raise important issues of criminal justice and allow the free expression of ideas in the hope that intellectual analysis would be encouraged. " However, the $10,000 event (the total amount spent) was not accepted by all as a fair decision. Many gathered on the steps of Hill Auditorium to protest the debate. Gatherers chanted slogans such as, " No Daryl Gates, No KKK, No Racist, Fascist USA, " and " Racist Attack, Speak Up, Fight Back, " and carried signs with messages like, " Gates will treat you like a King. " One flier supplied by the BMC stated, " Like everyone else, Daryl Gates has a constitutional right to free expression. But nobody - not even Daryl Gates - has a constitu- tional " right " to an auditorium, a mic, and thousands of dollars in speaking fees. By making Gates an honored guest at U-M, UAC has degraded the university and has particularly insulted the African-American and Latino a members of the university community. " Upon speaking, Nadine Strossen, who graced the microphone first, identified the false suggestion that we must choose between human Tania Kappner, a non- student, uses a megaphone to project to the crowd gathered on the steps of Hill. The Baker Mandela Center opposed the $10,000 event by protesting. Confusion, however, spread as radicalises not associated with the group wanted to enter and shut down the evening. rights and safety with regards to the criminal just ice system in the U.S. " Tough, militaristic policing is NOT working. It destroys human rights. Police can not violate the law in order to enforce it. " Daryl Gates ' rebuttal defended the impos- sible demands set on the criminal justice system by the American public. He explained the feeling by most who only feel safe if a police officer is at every corner, ready to keep the peace. " You ask police to handle situations that no one has the answer to. KEEP US SAFE. DON ' T MAKE A MISTAKE. That ' s impos- sible. " With regards to the riots in L.A., he stated, " L.A. criminals went out and rioted; good people went home and cried. " Student reaction to the event was undeni- ably against Daryl Gates. This was readily apparent during the question and answer period with the predominately student audience. Students such as Eric L. Williams, a graduate student in the School of Public Health, asked Gates, " Where was Rodney King ' s judge and jury on the night he was beaten? " Furthermore, an unidentified student asked Gates, " How can you accept money at the expense of people in L.A.? " Gates ' candid response to this question was, " It ' s going in my bank account to be used for something I want. " Summing up the evening by what appeared to be general con- sent, Peter Sarkissian, LSA first-year student, stated, " I thought he was pathetic and com- pletely ignorant. " Michigan Life 45 The U launches a major campaign Hill Auditorium. ..the Rackham Building.. .the Law Quad. These, and other campus landmarks stand in testimony to Michigan ' s longstanding tradition of private financial support. Over the past several decades, the University has established itself as a leader in fundraising among all colleges, becoming, as some have referred to it, a " privately supported public institution. " In September 1992, however, the University took an unprecedented new step in its fundraising efforts, launching the five-year Campaign for Michigan - an effort to raise $1 billion in private donations. By Peter Kogan Although the Campaign ' s formal start was de- signed to coincide with the University ' s 175th anniversary, the necessity had been an issue for a long time. The decline in state financial support, from 77% in 1960 to 41% in 1992, had meant that, more than ever, Michigan needed to rely on pri- vate support to maintain its world-class standards in teaching and research, as well as to fund crucial long-term projects. " The private support is criti- cal in a time when government funding will be decreasing, " said University Development Officer Pam Clapp. The origins of this newest fundraising effort lied in a 1990 request from Provost Gilbert Whitaker to schools and colleges to provide their top long-term priority financial needs. This was later refined by a Campaign Steering Committee, and the program was prepared for formal launch in 1992. In the meantime, however, the University had already launched an effort to raise $200 mil- lion as part of a Nucleus Fund. This goal was accomplished in time for the official kickoff, with 47 gifts of over $1 million each from companies such as Ford, CM, Arthur Andersen, foundations, and individual donors. In addition, the Campaign announced the appointment of five co-chairmen, including Bo Schembechler and UM alumnus and CBS News correspondent Mike Wallace. The Campaign for Michigan began with a formal ceremony on September 18, where Presi- dent James Duderstadt, Wallace, and other offi- cials introduced the goals of the campaign to a group of distinguished alumni. The ceremony also included the unveiling of the Nucleus Fund dona- tions. " We believe our optimism and high expec- tations are justified, " wrote Duderstadt in a later formal address. " We are confident that our alumni and friends will make it possible for us to meet bold challenges today as they have in the past. " From now until 1997, the Campaign for Michi- gan would include all private donations to the University, ranging from small-scale annual gifts to " principal gifts " of $2.5 million and above. " No matter where you give in the next five years, " said Clapp, " your gift will go to the Campaign. " In terms of allocation, the Steering Committee had identified five broad objectives for the Campaign: Undergraduate Education, Science, World Issues, Health Sciences, and Humanities. Specifically, the biggest projects would include a new Center for Undergraduate Education, comprising class- rooms, offices, and museums; a new building for the School of Social Work; new Cancer Geriat- rics Centers; a new Engineering Center for stu- dent services and Industrial and Operations Engi- neering; new tennis facilities; and a full-scale restoration of Hill Auditorium. In addition, al- most all schools and colleges within the Univer- sity would receive more monies for projects rang- ing from endowments to renovations to scholar- ships. With such lofty goals in mind, the University ' s fundraising staff devoted tremendous amounts of time to the Campaign. The Campaign continued its momentum with activities at the Rose Bowl, and plans were already being made for mid-course celebrations in 1994. As of December 31, 1992, the Campaign for Michigan had collected $385 million in private and corporate donations. " This is the largest fundraising effort by a public univer- sity ever.

The State Theatre, located ahove the ever-popular Urban Outfitters on State Street, offered second run films for much less than other Ann Arbor theaters. Aloha Entertainment, the agency leasing the theater, spent nearly $60,000 on restoration of the marquee three years ago, plus additional money to redecorate the interior to combine the old 1 940s style with neon colors and palm trees. ON THE DIAG Voices on the Diag contin- ued to be heard despite the implementation of a new Diag policy. The hub of campus activism and activities received its first real workout during Festifall, the fall program de- signed to allow student organiza- tions a chance to gather new members and let the rest of the campus know what they were about. Tables, chairs and an abundance of fliers lined the Diag on a sunny September afternoon as students strolled about direct- ing their questions to any organization that caught their eyes. Considering the importance of student organizations on campus, Festifall proved very useful to all students and organizations alike. The 1992 Election also brought its share of action to the Diag. From smaller-scale campus-orga- nized rallies to those of much more grand proportions, the Diag had it all. Only hours after the third presidential debate held on the MSU campus, Presidential- nominee Bill Clinton, along with wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea, appeared at Ingalls Mall, the northward extension of the Diag between the MLB and the Michigan League. Clinton had been preceded at the podium by a number of Democrat big wigs including former Michigan governor Jim Blanchard and U.S. Senators Don Riegle and Carl Levin. A crowd of 12,000 gathered to hear Clinton speak and were entertained during the long wait by various speakers and a band a political rally Clinton- style. One week before the election, Texas Governor Ann Richards made the trip " up north " to lend her support to the Clinton-Gore ticket. Gov.

In early 1993 the " Policy for The rally was held in conjunction Scheduled Use of the University of Michigan Designated Outdoor Common Areas " was introduced after nearly a year in the planning stages. Much to the surprise of students, the policy passed virtually unnoticed. Many students were unaware of the policy as well as its new guide- lines for Diag gatherings. The Diag policy applied both to the Diag as well as to the North Campus Common. Permits were required before events could take place, and were only available to university- affiliated groups. The policy also outlawed chalking and illegal drugs and alcohol on the Diag. Students reacted with a rally expressing the concern over free speech issues under the new policy. Students took to the cement with chalk in hand to express their feelings toward the new policy. In other controversial Diag news, Hash Bash 1993 took place on April 3.

Because of the time restrictions on the Diag, the majority of the rallying crowd was moved to Fuller Park where the rally continued. VISITORS Aside from numerous visits by politicians, campus was also graced with the presence of other famous personalities. Former Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl Gates made a controversial appearance on campus in a debate with Nadine Strossen, American Civil Liberties Union President. Protest groups formed outside of Hill Auditorium. Many protest- ers acknowledged Gates right to free speech but were upset, instead, that Gates had received money for his appearance. The topic of the debate was intended to be the future of the legal system, but was slightly diverted by numerous questions about the Rodney King beating. Martin Luther King Day brought several big names to Ann Arbor. Actors Danny Glover and Felix Justice gave a 90-minute program at Hill Auditorium. Glover presented poetry of Langston Hughes, and Justice gave a dramatic reading of a Martin Luther King speech. The day ' s activities also brought former Planned Parenthood President Faye Wattleton and U.S. Representative Shirley Chisholm (D-New York), the first African American woman elected to Congress. The women were part of a discussion about racial and gender equality. THE CODE On Thursday, November 19, 1993 the Regents of the Univer- sity approved the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibili- ties with a 6-2 vote. The code had been discussed in several poorly-attended meetings open to all university students. Although 81% of students who voted in the MSA elections earlier in the week opposed the implementa- tion of the code, and 93% thought the code should be voted upon by the students, most students weren ' t aware of the actual code regula- tions. The code took effect January 1, 1993 and included guidelines for non- academic conduct for students. ADOPTION Perhaps the biggest story to come out of Ann Arbor in 1993 was the adoption case of Jan and Roberta DeBoer. The DeB oers adopted baby Jessica in February 1 99 1 from an unwed mother in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The mother, Clara Claussen, gave up her parental rights two days after the birth of her daugh- ter.

Meanwhile, the Reagan administra- tion saw its first official, namely former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, indicted on charges of perjury. 18 The Pentagon was asked to investigate a 1991 Tailhook convention after complaints surfaced that 26 women were sexually assaulted by Marine and Navy aviators. 20 Czech and Slovak leaders agreed to the formation of a national caretaker government as a prelude to dividing Czechoslovakia into two separate countries. 52 Retrospect until roughly one month later, as the DeBoer ' s adoption papers were being finalized. Since Dan had not formally given up his rights as a parent for the adoption, he began court proceed- ings for custody of the child. Mean- while, he and Clara were married. In the fall of 1992, the Iowa Supreme Court upheld a ruling that Jessica should be returned to the Schmidts in Iowa. But when the DeBoers were ordered to return the baby in December, they began their own legal battle to bring the case to the Michigan courts. The case was given Michigan jurisdiction, and a new trial began in the Washtenaw County Courts. At the end of the trial, Circuit Judge William Ager ruled that it was in the best interest of the child to remain with Jan and Robby DeBoer, the only parents Jessica had ever known. The Schmidts took Ager ' s ruling to the Michigan Court of Appeals and were awarded custody of Jessica the end of March 1993. The DeBoers prepared to take the case to the Michigan or the U.S. Supreme Court. A very emotional Jan and Robby DeBoer appeared on ABC ' s 20 20 and appealed to all watching to help them in their protest of the latest ruling. RAPE A 47-year old Ann Arbor woman was brutally raped and assaulted as she was jogging through Eberwhite Woods near her home in late September. The incident shocked the residents of the small community near Ann Arbor, but during a community meeting to discuss the rape, several residents organized a walk to " take back the woods. " The residents walked through the woods five days after the rape to show that they would not be scared out of their commu- nity park. SPORTS What a year for the Wolver- ines!

Green, 35, was pulled over outside an alleged crack house. Officer Walter Budzyn asked Green for identifi- cation at which point, Green reached for the glove compart- ment of his Mercury Topaz. A struggle began between Green and Budzyn. Officer Larry Nevers assisted and punches were thrown. One of the two officers then radioed for assistance. The next course of events was unclear. Two backup cars arrived and Green was pulled from his car and handcuffed. Confusion existed as to what Green was holding in his hand at the time. Some reports claimed Green was holding a piece of paper while the police believed he was holding drugs. Police officers said the struggle continued, but other witnesses said Green was unable to fight back at this point. Green died of wounds to the head, likely inflicted by the large metal flashlights that the officer carry. Officers Nevers and Budzyn were charged with second-degree murder. Sergeant Freddie Douglas was charged with involuntary manslaughter and willful neglect of duty for not stepping in to stop the beating. The charge of manslaughter was later dropped. Immediately after the beating, the seven involved officers were suspended without pay from the police force. The four formally-charged officers were fired from the police force one month after the beating. All of them pleaded not guilty. POLICE CHIEF HART The Detroit Police Depart- ment was not without its share of problems during the year. In May 1992, former Police Chief William Hart was found guilty of embezzling $2.6 million from a taxpayer fund used to support undercover operations. Hart put the money into dummy corpora- tions, and used it to buy lavish gifts for three female companions from 1982 to 1989. Hart was sentenced in U.S. District Court to ten years in prison, the maximum penalty for the crime. He was also ordered to repay the embezzled funds. Hart had headed the department from 1976 to 1991, the longest term of any former Detroit police chief. THE TIGERS President of Domino ' s Pizza Thomas Monaghan sold the Detroit Tigers to fellow pizza-man Michael Hitch, owner of Little Caesar ' s Pizza Chain and the Detroit Red Wings hockey team. Hitch proposed a " free-spending " plan to get the Tigers back on their feet and make the team a contender once again. Examples of the new plan include several free-agent signings over the off- season such as Mike Moore and former Tiger Kirk Gibson. The Tigers also signed Cecil Fielder to a multi-million dollar contract making him one of the game ' s highest-paid players. Aside from roster changes, Hitch had big plans for other facets of the Tiger club. A proposal was put forth to build a new stadium, but in a referendum Detroit voters rejected the idea of spending tax dollars to build a completely new stadium. Voters did show their vocal support, however, for making changes to the existing stadium. Hitch put a hold on ticket price increases and began construction on Tiger Plaza to the stadium in an effort to attract more fans and families. 9 13-19 Bill Clinton named The Democratic Tennessee Senator convention put its Al Gore as his best foot forward running mate. with powerful speakers Mario Cuomo, Jesse Jackson, and AIDS activist Elizabeth Glaser.

The United States athletes took home 108 medals, including 4 medals from University of Michigan athletes. TOWN MEETING President Clinton held his first town meeting in Southfield, Michigan in his maiden voyage outside the city limits of Wash- ington, D.C. as President of the United States. President Clinton addressed questions from the Southfield audience as well as questions from Seattle, Miami and Atlanta by satellite hookup. Clinton addressed questions on the economy, health care, gays in the military, and foreign policy. Regard- ing health care, Clinton pledged to send a national health care plan to Congress during his first 100 days in office. Clinton defended his tax policy of raising middle-class income taxes. He swore that the increase would only be used as a last minute measure, but emphasized that the deficit had increased greatly since before the election. The President spoke briefly about unrest in Yugoslavia, put by the wayside. MICHIGAN LEGISLATURE The Michigan Legislature kept itself busy during 1992-93 with the November election and stating his belief that the U.S. should not become involved. Clinton explained his position on gays in the military, but also touched on heterosexual harass- ment in the military, stressing that it was a problem not to be a tight agenda of new legislation. One of the agenda items of the legislature was the discussion of the Open Meetings Act. An amendment to the Act proposed exemption for universities during the selection process of a new president. The act originally required all meetings to be made public to all. The University was involved in proceedings after an alleged violation of the act during the selection of current president James Duderstadt. At the same time, the senate was hearing a bill to restrict and reduce unemployment benefits. The proposal by Senate Republicans included reducing business pay- ments over three years as well as changing several guidelines for receiving assistance. Also in Lansing, Governor John Engler proposed a large funding program for public universities. The package was included in the state ' s 1994 and 1995 fiscal budgets and created thousands of new construction jobs at 25 sites around the state.

An amendment was made to the Parental Rights Restoration Act of September 1990. The changes made clarified the term " emergency " allowing an abortion to be performed without parental consent in the event of risk of death or permanent bodily injury. Originally upwards of 20 addi- tional amendments to the Act were proposed and debated, but all were defeated. Michigan voters said yes on a term limit proposal that limited House members to two three-year terms and Senators to two four- year terms. 3CTOR DEATH Retired pathologist Dr. Jack Kevorkian continued to assist terminally-ill patients to take their own lives despite the passing of new legislation specifically outlawing physician-assisted suicide. Kevorkian had assisted 15 of his patients since June 1990 and continued plans to do so after Michigan Governor John Engler moved up the date of effect of the new law. Murder charges were filed against Kevorkian for the deaths of two women in 1991 but in July 1992, the charges were dismissed in circuit court. The judge cited that nowhere in Michigan law did it specifically prohibit being involved in a suicide. The ruling, coupled with strong public opinion about physician-assisted suicides, prompted swift movement of the bill through the Michigan legislature. The suicide bill arrived in a judiciary committee in early October, and was passed by the Senate and heard by the House only two months later. The bill was originally set to take effect on March 30th, but after the legislature moved up the implementation, Gov. Engler signed the bill putting it into effect the same day, February 25th. Ac- cording to the new legislation, any physi- cian aiding in the death of a patient would have been subject to four years imprisonment and a fine of $2,000. At the same time, physician- assisted suicides were being debated across the country. In Bloomington, Minnesota 500 doctors, lawyers, health-care and social workers gathered for an international conference to discuss the morality issues of physician-assisted suicide. Groups in neighbor- ing state Ohio petitioned for a ban on physi- cian- assisted suicides as well, fearing " Doctor Death " could have crossed the state line to offer his " services.

The board of directors pushed Stempel to resign due to the company ' s tight financial fix. Stempel had collapsed while in Washington, D.C., and was suffering from high blood-pressure.

Meanwhile, to help solve its economic woes, GM announced the closing of 1 2 plants part of a plan to eventually close 2 1 plants by the end of 1995. Two Michi- gan cities, Ypsilanti and Flint, topped the closing list and affected thousands of workers and their families. Despite the GM plans, the Willow Run Plant in Ypsilanti was unable to go ahead and move opera- tions to Arlington, Texas. In Washtenaw Coun- try Circuit Court, a judge ruled that the Willow Run plant would have to remain open. The judge said that it was unfair of GM to disregard its employees for the sake of producing an automobile at a slightly lower cost. Statistics taken from the two plants, however, showed only a minute long-run profit differential between the two plants. -Mar} Cummings AP Photo 10 University Regents and administrators busied themselves by approving a 9.9 percent tuition increase and drafting a new student code of non-academic conduct. 11 12-20 Hurricane Iniki tore The NASA space across the Hawaiian shuttle Endeavour island of Kauai made a noteworthy leaving four dead in journey carrying the its wake. first married couple in space, Lee and Jan Davis; and the first black female astronaut, Mae Jemison.

Retrospect 57 THE ELECTION The Presidential campaign in 1992 was notable for many of the rrs. trends, documented and other- wise, that it ended up bucking. When the nine months of campaigning, advertising and debating were over, George Bush became the second Republican incumbent since Herbert Hoover to be denied re-election, Ross Perot gave the best third-party candidate showing since Teddy Roosevelt, and Bill Clinton became only the second Demo- crat to occupy the Oval Office in the last twenty years. Clinton ' s long march to the Presidency began in New Hamp- shire in January, where the still- obscure Arkansas governor opened the primary season against five Democratic oppo- nents. Dogged by allegations of an affair with Gennifer Flowers which he denied, as well as allegations of marijuana use and Vietnam-era draft dodging, which he equivocated, Clinton stumbled early, losing the first primary to Paul Tsongas. He man- aged to capitalize on his Southern base and moderate rhetoric to pull ahead and clinch the nomination with victories in the Michigan, Illinois, and New York primaries. Clinton ' s big moment came, however, during the July Democratic Convention, where he selected Tennessee Senator Albert Gore as a running mate, and rode a swell of party support to a lead in the summer polls. Meanwhile, Texas billionaire H. Ross Perot entered the race as a " people- nominated " candidate in May, and leaped ahead of Clinton and Bush in many opinion polls. Frustrated by the high costs of campaigning, and unable to enunciate a message, Perot abruptly pulled out of the race after the Democratic Conven- tion, claiming apprehension about contributing to electoral deadlock. In the August Republi- can Convention, President Bush ' s nomination came as no surprise, although his party ' s embrace of a rigidly conservative platform worried some observers. As the cam- paign began to gather steam in September, with Bush attempting to whittle down Clinton ' s big lead, Perot stunned everyone by returning to the race, claiming his distress over the lack of attention devoted to the $3 AP Photo 22 Clinton spoke to a crowd of 20,000 on the MSU campus in place of a debate called off by the Bush campaign.

Surprisingly, Perot managed to regain a substantial share of his pre-with- drawal support, and his entry tightened the race between Clinton, Bush and himself. The countdown to November 3 proved to be frustrating to Bush; unable to gain ground during the three Presidential debates, and dogged by a slow economic recovery, Bush could not over- come Clinton ' s lead in either the polls or in electorally-important states. Although both men were hurt by Perot ' s strong showing, Clinton managed to win an electoral plurality with 43% of the vote, and carried the electoral college with a solid majority. When the dust had cleared in November, America had elected its first Democrat in fourteen years, and the first mem- ber of the AP Photo baby boom generation to hold the country ' s highest office. CLINTON ADMINISTRATION For Bill Clinton, the honey- moon with voters proved to be exceedingly brief. He drew fire almost immediately for launching his administration with a splashy, expensive inaugural gala. The real trouble would begin in the next few weeks. Most of Clinton ' s cabinet, while criticized by some as being too representa- tive of old Democratic Party interests and supporters, managed to pass Congressional nomination hearings with little trouble; Clinton ' s choice for attorney general, corporate counsel Zoe Baird, however, was stymied by revelations that she had hired Peruvian illegal aliens to work as a nanny and chauffeur, and had neglected to report or to pay Social Security taxes for their service. Under a flurry of popular criticism, Baird withdrew her nomination nominee, Federal Judge Kimba Wood, also withdrew her nomi- nation after it was learned that she had hired an illegal alien as well (albeit hers was registered). At this point many feminist groups criticized the public response to the " Nanny-gate " cases, and spoke of a double standard for male and female professionals, the latter being more likely to rely on sitters for their children. Clinton ' s third choice, Miami District Attorney Janet Reno, passed confirma- tion without trouble, and took her seat as the nation ' s first female attorney general in March.

Among Hollywood ' s other losses was Robert Reed, the father on the " Brady Bunch " and slavemaster on the mini-series " Roots, " who died at the age of 59. Reed was one of many celebrities who were lost to the AIDS plague in 1992, together with actors Anthony Perkins and Denholm Elliott. Another man who lost the battle with AIDS was tennis great, lecturer, and activist Arthur Ashe. Ashe had been acknowledged as the first great black tennis player, winning the U.S. Open in 1967 and Wimbledon in 1975. He also served as coach of the U.S. Davis Cup Team in the 1980s, and contributed his time to many social causes, including anti- apartheid activism and the struggle for fair treatment of black AP Photo collegiate athletes. Ashe, whose 1979 heart attack focused national attention on heart disease, protested the media ' s revelation that he had AIDS; however, after acknowl- edging his disease in 1992, he devoted his time to organizing fund-raising efforts to search for a cure. A giant of the Supreme Court died in early 1993. Thurgood Marshall was the first black Justice of the Supreme Magic Johnson, citing high-running tensions, left the Los Angeles Lakers for good.

Marshall, who started his legal career as a lawyer for the NAACP, and presented the winning argument in the land- mark 1956 Brown school desegre- gation decision, was nominated to the bench in 1967 by President Lyndon Johnson. Since then, he served as a bedrock for the court ' s liberal wing, stepping down in 1991 after thirteen years on the bench. Marshall was scheduled to deliver the inaugural oath to Vice President Albert Gore in January 1993, but the final stages of his illness forced him to forego the honors. HURRICANE ANDREW Although it was over in hours, the furious storm that swept through Southern Florida and Louisiana during the last week of August will be remem- bered by its survivors for a lifetime. Hurricane Andrew, which cut a path of destruction from the Bahamas to the Gulf of Mexico, became the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history, and the biggest one since the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. In addition to killing 23 people in Florida and Louisiana, Andrew guard was quickly deployed and left some destroyed thousands of looting was contained, the homes, leaving some 100,000 Federal Emergency Relief homeless, and caused $2.3 Association was seen by many million in property damage, victims as slow in providing food including industrial centers, and shelter . In addition, many were hurt by a lack of disaster insurance, and had difficulty restoring I their homes and property. As bad as Andrew was, some scientists noted that it could have been the first of many destruc- tive storms to come; the effects of global warming and the Greenhouse Effect could produce strong winds and tidal waves in coastal areas with alarming Courtesy of Heather Lowman sports stadiums, and the Home- stead (Fla.)

The code was imple- mented without being put to a student vote. 20 The troubles of Britain royal family were compounded after a devastating fire destroyed parts of Windsor Castle including the 14th century dining hall. The United Nations Security Council approved a proposal to set Operation Restore Hope into action. The operation was initiated to assist food relief to the war-torn African nation of Somalia. In other business, the U.N. stopped all airlifts to Yugoslavia after a cargo place was struck by gunfire. 3 The Michigan Senate heard a bill, already passed by the House, outlawing physi- cian-assisted suicide. The bill made it through the Senate in the same week. In similar news, an interna- tional conference was held in Bloomington, Minnesota to debate the morality of doctor-assisted suicide. Ann Arbor couple Jan and Roberta DeBoer had been ordered to return their adopted child to the biological parents, but instead began a legal retaliation. Operation Restore Hope began with the landing of the first Marine units. In their first maneuver, approximately 1,800 U.S. Marines secured the airport in the capital city of Mogadishu allowing more Marine and Army troops to Retrospect 61 SOMALIA Following the 1991 fall of dictator Mohammed Siad Barre, the Horn of Africa nation of Somalia descended into a nightmare of clan warfare, destruction, and widespread famine that threatened to wipe out a generation. Although the United Nations and private relief groups undertook efforts to provide food and medicine to the millions of starving Somalis in the country ' s capital and interior, all efforts in 1992 came to naught. As marauding Somali warlord militias robbed and stole grain at will, United Nations peacekeepers remained confined to the capital, Mogadishu. Despite calls from many to intervene to protect food ship- ments, President Bush and other Western leaders were initially apprehensive about deploying soldiers in the country. In December, however, with the burdens of election lifted, Bush authorized a force of 30,000 American soldiers and marines, backed by multinational units, to intervene in Somalia. The American troops came ashore to TV cameras and smiling faces; the operation initially proved to be an unqualified success, as food shipments flowed into the countryside and clan leaders abruptly agreed to a truce. The American objectives of ensuring famine relief, disarming Somali gangs and reinstating civic order had yielded some mixed results since. Although the famine had been stopped and food had gotten through, the process of remaking the Somali state was time- consuming. American troops had some success in seizing weapons, but clan warfare continued sporadically. In March, however, negotiations among Somali warlords yielded a truce settle- ment and agreement to share power in rebuilding the country. American troops turned relief efforts over to a United Nations 1993. YUGOSLAVIA The disintegration of Yugoslavia, begun in 1991 with the withdrawal of Slovenia and Croatia from the Serb-dominated federation, took an even more tragic turn in 1992. In March, the residents of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, ethni- cally divided between Croats, Serbs, and Slavic Muslims, voted on an independence referendum. The Bosnian Serbs boycotted the proceed- k X ings, which resulted in a declara- AP Phou. tion of force, and planned to continue to independence of a new state with do so through the summer of its capitol at Sarajevo. The 9 British Prime Minister John Major announced the formal separation of the British Royal couple, Prince Charles and Princess Diana. 11, 12 Six deaths were attributed to the worst storm to hit the East Coast in years. Record winds were accompanied by rain and snow. 24 President-elect Clinton handed out his last Cabinet appointments, while Bush doled out six pardons to top-ranking security officials who were involved in the Iran-contra affair. 27 A U.S. fighter plane shot down an Iraqi MIG-25 after the plane ignored all U.S. radio warnings and entered the no-fly zone. 31 President Bush spent New Year ' s Eve with U.S. troops in Somali. 1 The Wolverines took down the Washington Huskies 38-31 in the 49th Rose Bowl. 62 Retrospect Serbs, however, launched a war against their Moslem and Croat neighbors, hoping to carve out their republic from northern and eastern parts of Bosnia. Sup- ported by the rump Yugoslavian government in Belgrade, the better armed Serbs quickly overran large parts of Bosnia, and invested Sarajevo in a bitter siege. The United Nations re- sponded to Serbian aggressions in Bosnia by placing an arms embargo and blockade on Serbia and Bosnia, and deploying British, French, and other peacekeeping units to ensure relief supplies to besieged areas of the country. The world ' s atten- tion became focused on stronger interventive measures, however, after reports of concentration camps, mistreatment, and " ethnic cleansing " - murder and mass expulsion - began to come out of Bosnia in the summer. Despite the war ' s devastation, which resulted in thousands of dead and wounded, many more refugees, and reports of mass rapes and murders, most Western countries remained apprehensive about further intervention. In September, Serbian Commu- nist leader Slobodan Milosevic, seen by many as the force behind Serbian efforts in the Balkans, was elected President, which dashed most hopes for a Serbian withdrawal. President Bush, reluctant about intervention in an election year, took some steps to prevent the conflict from escalating before leaving office. Bill Clinton, who campaigned on a platform of more aggressive American effort to help the Bosnians, found himself similarly reluctant upon taking office to commit further resources. In November, negotiations between the warring factions and mediators Cyrus Vance and Lord David Owen produced a plan that would divide Bosnia into autono- mous, ethnically-based cantons, and would be enforced by a large force of U.N. peacekeepers. The Serbs seemed willing to accept the plan, but the Bosnians were opposed, claiming that it ratified aggressive land grabs against them. As negotiations continued, President Clinton pledged Ameri- can soldiers to uphold a peace settlement. In February, he initiated high- altitude drops of AP Photo relief supplies to besieged Moslem communities in eastern Bosnia. SUMMER OLYMPICS The games of 1992, which ran between July 25 and August 9 in Barcelona, Spain, were hailed as the first contest of the post- Cold War era. As such, they were devoid of the political overtones that had marked games Iraqi leader Sadham Hussein threatened retaliation for the downed Iraqi M1G, and shifted surface- to-air missiles to the southern part of the country. The Braer oil tanker crashed off the coast of the Shetland Islands spilling nearly 25 million gallons of oil. The severity of the incident perhaps topped that of the Exxon Valdez. 8 The much- anticipated Elvis Presley stamp hit post offices across the country. The original printing order was doubled due to the over- whelming response to the stamp. Millions of Americans cued up to purchase some of the 600 million issued stamps. 8 A California couple and their infant son were rescued from a fierce winter storm that had forced them to abandon their truck and trudge through waist-deep snow. 12 The University made an announce- ment that plans were being considered to install cable in residence halls with the possibility of broadcasting lectures. 13 After a series of attacks, threats and disregarded ultimatums the U.S. launched an attack on Iraq, bombing anti- aircraft missle sites. 21 Bill Clinton was inagurated as the 42nd president of the United States in the midst of a grand celebration. The President vowed to invest in America even though it would take sacrifices from all. The Clintons, however, spared no detail for the inagural festivities to the dismay of both opponents and supporters. Retrospect 63 of the past several years and, in addition, managed to avoid drug scandals of the sort that cast a shadow over the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Instead, the competition ' s atmosphere was highlighted by the gracious, high- spirited host city, which many athletes came to love; and the record number of nations compet- ing, as new countries in Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe took their turns in the events. The athletes of the ex-Soviet Union, competing as a generic " Unified Team, " came away with the most medals overall. The United States, which finished second, was led by stellar performances in track and swimming, as well as the men ' s basketball victory of the Dream Team, composed of NBA superstars. As in games past, the University of Michigan was also represented on the victory stand, with several swimmers garnering silver and bronze medals for the maize and blue, as well as for the United States. OIL SPILL Although the 1988 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was the worst spill in North American history, it was actually milder than the mess caused by the January 1993 floundering of the tanker Braer in the North Sea off Scotland ' s Shetland Islands. The tanker spilled 26 million gallons of light crude oil into the salmon- rich waters of the Bay of Quendale, and the spill was carried out to sea by 70 mph winds. The spill, which was expected to hurt the area ' s fishing-based economy, had not yet been widely assessed for ecological damage. The incident, however, was a sober warning that, despite advances in combating environ- mental damage on the seas, we could still expect disaster 1 and danger. THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY Although, by the standards of British royal family history, the throne Prince Charles and wife Princess Diana was not the most grave of crises - Henry VIII did have a worse fate for two of his wives - the royal bickering made the year a family disaster for the Windsors. The couple, whose 1981 wedding captivated the world, separated amid rumors of bilateral infidelity and transcripts of racy conversations in Novem- ber of 1992. The British royal mess was more than just a family squabble; it opened the question of whether Diana could become queen upon Charles ' ascension to AP Phot separation between heir to the the throne, and if Charles would be crowned 26 President Clinton chose his wife Hillary Rodham Clinton to head the task force on national health care. The Family Leave Act made it to Clinton ' s desk and was signed into law, after previously being vetoed by Bush. 12 Judge William Ager awarded custody of a 2 -year-old adopted child to her adoptive parents, Ann Arbor residents Jan and Roberta DeBoer. The ruling came at the end of a highly- publicized three- week trial. The natural parents contested the ruling. 18 Despite previous plans to turn Fletcher Hall into a special building for the sports depart- ment, the Univer- sity told all residents that the hall would remain a dowmitory for the 1993-94 school year. 26 New York City ' s World Trade Center felt the shock of an underground explosion. The force of the bomb, which was planted by terrorists, shook both towers killing five and injuring 1,000. 28 Four federal agents were killed when a planned attack on the Waco, Texas compound of the Branch Davidian ' s sect went askew. Federal agents were caught off-guard by the number and power of the sects weapons. The stand-off continued, but several children were released from the compound. 64 Retrospect as a separated husband; what the order of succession would be; and whether or not Britain ' s tourist industry, which drew a substantial amount of revenue from the allure of royal ceremonies and residences, would suffer as a result? Amid the distress, Queen Eliza- beth II had to cope with more misfortune: an October fire raged in Windsor castle, adding damaged tapestries to damaged psyches in the royal family. HAITI Inl991,Jean-Bertand Aristide, the elected President of Haiti, was overthrown and forced to flee to the United States in a military coup. Although the Bush Administration criticized the military ' s repression, and implemented economic sanctions against the new regime, it was unwilling to accept a flood of Haitian refugees to American maintain the American naval blockade of the island nation, and coasts, and detained hundreds who tried to do so at the naval base in Guantanamo, Cuba, even repatriating some. During the campaign, Bill Clinton criticized the Bush policies as inhumane and inconsistent with American support for Aristide, advocating more open admission of Haitians as political asylum seekers. After election, however, faced with the prospect of 100,000 Haitians braving the sea in rickety boats for Miami, Clinton decided to continued to confine some HIV- infected refugees at Guantanamo. This drew criticism from some of Clinton ' s followers, for reneging on a campaign promise, and failing to provide more support for Aristide. JAPANESE BRIDE In the old days, when Japan ' s emperor was allowed several wives and unlimited consorts, the problems of picking out a marital partner were significantly easier. But, in the 1990s, it took Japan ' s 3 2 -year old Crown Prince Naruhito years of searching to find a bride who would accept his hand as heir to the 2,700-year old throne. Masako Owada, a 29-year old Harvard graduate and bureaucrat of Japan ' s Foreign Ministry, captivated the country by accepting the Prince ' s offer of marriage in January 1993. She had met the qualifications of the imperial family - including being shorter than the 5-foot-5 prince. After being wooed by the Prince, she became only the second com- moner ever in line to share the Chrysanthemum Throne. -Peter Kogan 18 30 Rodney King took The headlines read: The Michigan the witness stand " ' U ' cops nab Court of Appeals for the first time Entree Plus since the beating to delinquent.

The DeBoers were given 21 days in which to turn the child over to her biological parents, Clara and Dan Schmidt. The DeBoers planned to appeal to either the Michigan or U.S. Supreme Court. Foot traffic in Ann Arbor increased hundred-fold in a short 24-hour period. Hash Bash drew a smaller crowd than in previous years due to the dreary weather. South University saw a much larger crowd later in the evening as 12,000 jubilant fans celebrated Michigan ' s exciting win over the Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA Basketball championship ' s Final Four match up. Despite a strong start and a team full of energy, the Wolverines lost 77- 7 1 to the University of North Carolina, making it the second consecutive year that Michigan had made it to the NCAA basketball finals but come away without a victory. Retrospect 65 A Diverse Community Does Not Always " Me!t " RACISM By Lisa Muffins An intense focus on multiculturalism and diversity placed the University of Michigan on the forefront of improving interracial relations. Acknowledging different cultural backgrounds, faculty and students strove to create an atmosphere where differences would be recognized and accepted. Although progress was steadily made, the goal of complete harmony and respect for other cultures was still somewhere in the future. Both majority and minority groups contin- ued to struggle with racial tensions and relations with cultures different from their own. Some students decided not to wait for prejudices and discrimination to heighten to harmful levels. Instead, they took action by banning together in cultural pride, trying to promote a higher under- standing of the true meaning of multiculturalism. They set out to prove that racism was still prevalent and changes had to be made. University of Michigan Asian American Student Coalition (UMAASC) formed in response to the increasing racial discrimination directed at Asian Americans. " I think people see Asian Americans as an easy target for harassment because we appear to be passive, " said Michael Liem, an LSA senior. UMAASC made it their mission to dissolve these negative stereotypes, focusing on political advocacy, educational programming, and student awareness. Every week members organized an awareness workshop with topics such as " Internalized Racism " and " Responding to Harassment " to confront real racial issues. In an effort to bridge the gap between themselves and the African American community, UMAASC organized weekly dialogue groups, creating a forum for multicultural interaction. " We ' re making slow progress, " said Liem, " but we ' re all quite hopeful. " Discrimination against African Americans continued, although the prejudices were not always expressed as outright racism. " The discrimination against blacks is mostly subtle, " said Jennifer Reed, LSA senior and member of Delta Sigma Theta, an African American community service sorority. " People see us as a color and don ' t always take us seriously as students. They think we ' re here to fill quotas. " Delta Sigma Theta focused their efforts on serving the community while bridging the gap between different cultures. " Most students don ' t come in close contact with other ethnicities, " said Reed, " As long as people cling to their own ethnic groups, even though it ' s safe, prejudices will not change. " A culture greatly misunderstood and under- represented, many Native Americans had negative feelings about their lack of cultural and political progress: " People see us as something of the past, " said Dawn DeMarsh, a School of Natural Resources senior and member of Native American Student Association (NASA), " It ' s almost like we no longer exist. " NASA was united to dissolve these stereotypes and make their voices heard. November and March were designated as Native American months; during this time NASA organized workshops dedicated to Native American traditions and pride. " We still have a long way to go, " said DeMarsh, " I haven ' t seen much progress since I began school here, only a small triumph here and there. " While many tried to ignore or conceal it, racism was still a harsh reality of campus life. Cultures clashed and all felt discriminated against. Hope was only to be found in students who were bold enough to confront the realities of racism and work towards a true spirit of multiculturalism. 66 Michigan Life Greg Emmanuel Spike Lee delighted the crowd at Hill Auditorium. His movies such as She ' s Gotta Have It, School Days, Do The Right Thing, Mo ' Better Blues, Jungle Fever, and perhaps his most controversial Malcolm X, succeed in increasing social awareness of current issues, with heavy emphasis on criticizing our fundamentally rascist society. Michigan Life 67 The Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Community WE ARE HERE By DeAnna Heindal Anyone who watched the presidential con- ventions in 1992 saw history in the mak- ing. For the first time ever, issues directly concerning sexual orientation made it to the forefront of the political campaign arena, two-sided though the induction was. Pat Robertson and Patrick Buchanan preached about the immorality of homosexuality while Bill Clinton promised to lift the Armed Forces ' s ban against lesbian and gay enlistees. As the world of politics buzzed with issues concern- ing sexual orientation, the exact number of lesbian and gay individuals on campus remained still unknown. " There ' s really no way of tracking the numbers. Lesbi- ans, gay men, and bisexual people aren ' t easy to count. There ' s just no way of knowing unless they are com- pletely out. But, there ' s no reason to think that the University wouldn ' t reflect the ten percent national figure, as a ball-park estimate, " explained Jim Toy, co- coordinator of the University ' s Lesbian - Gay Male Programs Office (LGMPO). According to that theory, there were approximately 3,600 lesbian, gay, and bi- sexual men and women enrolled at the University of Michigan in 1992-3. " It amazes me how large, yet how invisible the gay community is. Few outside of it realize the size, " reflected Aerospace Engineering senior, Will Hamp. " Our computer conference has 400 members, and those are just the participants. We can ' t tell how many observers there are. " " We are everywhere, " proclaimed recent graduate Pete Castro. " There ' s a gay person in 1 of every 4 families. " He continued stating that, " the [gay] commu- nity is bigger than a single group. There are many groups of ranging interests. There ' s something for everybody because we are a cross-section of everybody. " The Ann Arbor area reflected that diversity with a wide range of resources for its lesbian, gay, and bisexual members including social groups within the Engineer- ing, Music, Medical, Public Health, Business, and Law schools, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Faculty Alliance, Common Language Bookstore, Ozone House (teen support groups), various church support groups, P-Flag (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), sports groups, and the Nectarine. Several lesbian and gay students stressed the impor- tance of joining a group or participating in activities with other gay and lesbian people. " One of the hardest aspects about being gay is isolation. You grow up thinking that no one else feels the same way you do, that you ' re odd, different, and that everyone will shun you if you only they knew. The best thing about Ann Arbor is that a gay person doesn ' t have to feel isolated, " said Lou Cubba, a first year Medical student. " When breaking the isolation, though, you need to find a group that matches your interests, that we ' re all gay isn ' t enough, " observed Rachael Rosenthal, an Engineering senior. The East Quad RC Social Group was one of the growing gay and lesbian groups on campus. " It ' s fun to sit in a room of 50 people and know that they are all gay, " commented co-facilitator, LSA senior Kim Watson. According to its other co-facilitator, RC junior Brian Spolarich, " The group fills a gap for the community. There really wasn ' t a place before this that combined both social and support needs. " The EQ Group had nourished since its foundation in 1988 and was averaging 60 attendees weekly. LGMPO, the largest resource for local lesbian, gay, and bisexual communities, received 3, 500 requests for information and had close to 600 face-to-face and telephone counseling contacts in 1992. Their services reached and helped not only students, but also Univer- sity staff, faculty, and the families and friends of lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals. LGMPO offered coun- seling for relationships, Continued on page 71 68 Michigan Life Greg Emmanuel " I just took off my tutu before you came , " jokes Lou Cubba about the misconception of homosexuality by the general public. Cubba, a medical student, stresses the normaky of his life, " Gays are people Michigan Life 69 Greg Emmanuel Matteo Vaknti, a senior, is a Resident Advisor at East Quad. Next year he will begin medical school at Michigan State University. " In the media you mainly see the extreme fart. By being out and not being one of those extremes, I ' m a good example for other people to see that they ' re just like me. People have gotten to know that I ' m much more than just a gay man . That ' s just a part of my being. " 70 Michigan Life WE ARE HERE (continued from page 68) discrimination, childhood sexual abuse, partner abuse, and the difficulties of coming out. Toy stressed the importance of these services, citing " Lesbians, gay men, and bisexual people have a far greater risk of substance abuse than other groups. The likelihood is 3 to 4 times greater for gay men and 6 to 8 times greater for lesbians. " " 3 times as many gay youths commit suicide and 66 percent of the youths that come-out are drug and or alcohol abusers, " Peg Canton, a non-student member of a local gay community also revealed. Rosenthal stated that she had " never met a gay person who became an alcoholic after coming out; I know lots who were before though. " Coming out was often the most difficult step in a gay person ' s life. " Societal attitudes about [gays] leading to discontent, harassment, and discrimination get associ- ated with the coming-out process. These pressures create fear, anxiety, anger, alienation, and isolation for the gay individual, " explained Toy. But the process was more often ultimately beneficial. LSA senior David Moran, who had just recently come out, said that desperation and the fear that he might do something drastic led him to make his first step. He went to the East Quad RC Social Group for support. " I was embar- rassed at first, but it dispelled a lot of stereotypes and myths that I had. There was a real feeling of sincerity and I ' ve gained a lot of confidence. " He emphasized later that, " I came out just six weeks ago and I accept myself more now than ever before. " " Self-hatred definitely comes before self-awareness. You have to purge all the internalized stuff that society tells you, that being gay is dirty, nasty, and wrong, " said Hamp. " It ' s self over society, the ultimate success, " concluded George Hardnett, an LSA senior. Hamp affirmed this sentiment, stating that, " There ' s a stron- ger sense of self after we come-out. We can break free from the constraints that society puts on us, unlike other groups. " Coming out not only helped gay and lesbian indi- viduals understand themselves better, but also allevi- ated stresses between gays and non-gays. " I truly believe that a lot of people don ' t hate or fear gays as much as they have never met or befriended an openly gay person, " surmised Cubba. " In the media you mainly see the extreme part, " Matteo Valenti (LSA senior) further observed. " By being out and not being one of those extremes, I ' m a good example for other people to see that they ' re just like me. People have gotten to know that I ' m much more than just a gay man. That ' s just a part of my being. " Commenting on the atmosphere toward gays and lesbians, Rachael said that, " most of the students in my classes are very accepting. " " Ann Arbor is light years ahead of rural America, " Cubba said. Confirming these observations, another student, who wished to remain unnamed, responded that, " UM is generally a friendly environment for gay people, certainly much more so than the small town where I grew up. But there are still problems and bashing unfortunately, but over- all, a pretty friendly place. " Graduate student Susan Short has had both positive and negative experiences on campus. " When I came out to my last Pilot course, the students reacted with hugs and kisses. It was awkward for a couple of people, but fine for the most part. " In contrast to the warm reception of her students, she received homophobic slurs when breaking up a party on her hall. Short also recounted a particularly disturbing incident that oc- curred at a University function. " We were talking about the supervisor of an out-reach team who was an active member at Memorial Church. Memorial serves to gays and lesbians. Someone asked about it and it was described as small and nice. Another woman at the meeting said, ' Oh, my God, I hope it would be small. " When asked why the woman said, " Gays and lesbians, that ' s so disgusting, I ' d hope it would be small. ' " Short said that the comment made everyone present uncom- fortable, but what really hurt was that no one stood up for her. Continued on page 72 Michigan Life 71 " WE ARE HERE " (continued from page 71) Short also met with prob- lems when she and her partner graduate student Betsy Daub were denied the right to live together in University housing, and in general, opinions about the University ' s relationship with its gay, lesbian, and bisexual population were far more critical than those concerning staff and students. Despite of the size and the needs of the gay population on campus, many members felt that the University failed to recognize them. " Every year, when Duderstadt gives his speech to new orientees and their parents, he highlights the Michigan Mandate and the University ' s commitment to multi- culturalism. Yet, it ' s really far from that as it applies to us, " said Will. " But it ' s not all Duderstadt ' s fault, " added Kim, " he ' d like to add the sexual-orientation clause to the Mandate, but the Regents won ' t pass it. " This clause, if added to the Mandate, would have prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation. Duderstadt ' s position toward the gay, lesbian and bisexual community came under ques- tion again as he refused to sign an advertisement stating opposition to the military ' s ban on gay males, lesbians, and bisexual people. Presidents from 88 other universities across the country agreed to participate in the ad which appeared in the New York Times on December 13. A few efforts, though, had been made by the University to recognize its gay, lesbian, and bisexual constituents. LGMPO was still the only gay, lesbian, and bisexual campus program center in the nation to be bi-gendered. It had had both a lesbian and a gay male co-coordinator since its creation in 1971. The Housing Office, through LGMPO, facilitated residence hall programs that helped both staff and students understand the complexity and seriousness of the issues concerned with sexual orientation. Also, the 1984 " Presidential Policy Statement " prohibited discrimination in education and employ- ment on the basis of sexual orientation. This policy, however, did not appear on University literature that went out to prospective students and the community in general. For many these few attempts fell short of what was needed on campus. LGMPO ' s Billie Edwards went so far as to resign from her post as Lesbian Program Coordinator in protest. She cited the homophobic and counterproductive attitudes of the University as her primary reasons. In the 1991 report, From Invisibility to Inclusion: Opening the Doors for Lesbians and Gay Men at the University of Michigan, its researchers concluded that, " Despite the wide and deep support throughout the University for equity and acceptance, there are nevertheless many areas of the community in which ignorance, misconceptions, and falsehoods about homosexuality and homosexuals abound. Hence, it is not surprising that discrimination against gay men and lesbians is widespread at the University and that many gay men and lesbians experience insensitivity, defamation, and harassment in one form or another. " Many gay and lesbian students expressed specific points of contention with the University ' s lack of helpful policies and programs. " There is no gay student housing or gay, lesbian, bisexual studies program. There are programs for African or women ' s studies, but not one for us unlike a lot of other schools, " emphasized Hardnett. " Housing requires us to be married, but we can ' t legally marry. Our relationships aren ' t legitimized, " added Hamp. But, as was characteristic, members of the lesbian, gay, and bisexual communities continually asserted that every negative aspect matched with an anti- thetical positive point. " Because the University itself is extremely insensitive to the needs of the gay community, it forces the community to come together, " Matteo Valenti explained. And as Castro reflected, " Negative attitudes toward us really only pose an opening for positive changes they show where progress can be made. " 72 Michigan Life 1 1 mm ANd BOOKSTOR V The Common Language bookstore, located at 214 South 4th St. , serves as a resource to the gay lesbian community of Ann Arbor. The community also found support at social groups within the Engineering, Music, Medical, Public Health, Business, and Lam schools, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Faculty Alliance, O?;one House (teen support groups) , Various church support groups, P-Flag( Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) , sports groups, and the Nectarine Bar. Michigan Life 73 At early " community meetings " held to explain and discuss the Code, lack of student support was evident . Although 81% of the students voting in the MSA elections cast their ballots against the Code, the decision to implement the policy ultimately lay in the hands of the Regents u ho did approve it u ith a 6-2 vote. Greg Emmanuel 74 Michigan Life Fighting for Freedom THE CODE By DeAnna Heindd On November 19th, the University ' s Board of Regents voted 6-2 to enact the long- debated Student Rights and Responsibili- ties Policy, better known as " the Code. " The Code was designed to govern student non-academic behavior both on and off campus. Work on the new policy began in the Spring of 1 99 1 , after the Supreme Court ruled that student codes, like our existing policy, were unconstitutional. Ideas for the content of the University ' s new code were drawn from student conduct codes at such schools as Washington State University, Michigan State University, and Vanderbilt University. The complaint process was so designed that after the judiciary advisor found sufficient evidence, the case would then move to the formal hearing stage. For each hearing a randomly selected group of students from an existing pool, under the patronage of a faculty member serving as chair, would decide guilt or innocence and the extent of punishment. During the summer months, the Administration mailed out over 38,000 copies of draft 10.2. Only3,010 students responded, with 89% doing so favorably. These findings were later confounded, however, by an MSA student vote in which 81 % of the 2,500 voters revealed that they did not want draft 12.2 (one of the many revisions) of the Code put into action. Following the summer mailing came a series of open forums, focus group discussions, rewrites, and sco res of articles in the Daily, The Review, and the University Record. But even with all of this publicity, the vast majority of the student population remained either apathetic or ignorant about the Code. In an attempt to explain the lack of student partici- pation and interest, Maureen Hartford, Vice-President for Student Affairs said, " Students don ' t see that it applies to them. As a student myself, I never remember thinking that another student could hurt me, but times have changed. " She cited from the Department of Public Safety annual report that in 1991 there were 332 larcenies, 239 charges of harassment, 33 assault and batteries, and 8 rapes in University housing alone. She concluded, " It is the University ' s professional and ethi- cal responsibility to challenge this behavior and to see that it is not repeated. " Opinions varied among those students who had read one of the 1 6 drafts of the Code. " The few things I know about it seem reasonable. I think that the Administra- tion has the University ' s best interest at heart and should have the right to create such a code, " replied LSA senior Matthew Dodge. Some students had mixed responses. " In the past I was harassed by a fellow student. If the Code had been in effect at that time, I could have used it to stop the student. At that time I didn ' t have any legal means to do so. But I don ' t have any trust in the administration to implement it in any fair way, " reflected School of Education senior, Beth Hill. Among the replies received from the mailing, a Graduate student in Urban Planning wrote that " The IDEA that we are considering a policy of behavior - just the idea is so sad. " A senior Business School senior simply responded, " Fuck the policy. Revise the admin- istration. " Other students questioned the fairness of specific stipulations within the Code. " There is a lack of representation afforded to the student accused under this proposal. Third parties may bring complaints, but the accused must represent himself. This takes away protections given to defendants in our society, " ex- plained campus ACLU president, David Schwartz. MSA representative, Rob Vanhouweling addressed the Regents by imploring them to " Consider the student vote and the questions of fairness. " He also wondered how the Code could protect student rights by changing parts of it after mistakes had already occurred and asked, " Why not make the changes first? " In an address to the Regents, Washtenaw County ACLU representative, Jean King, expressed that organization ' s opinion of the Code. She declared that organization would seriously consider representing students who might wish to sue after being subjected to the hearing process. The Code went into effect with the commence- ment of winter term. While an amendment process was added to the Code, the Regents decreed that an official review of the Student Rights and Responsibilities policy begin in February of 1994, just over a year from thetime of its execution. Michigan Life 75 Facing the abortion issue PRO-LIFE By Lisa Muttins Debate between pro-life and pro-choice activ- ists was heated and, at times, gruesome. It was an issue that seemed to have no final solution that would suit both sides. The battle continued, however, each side hoping to stimulate change. In the middle of all the demonstrations, protests, and political activism was the real issue: the actual women with unwanted pregnancies. They were scared and con- fused. Many had nowhere to turn. Students For Life, a pro-life student group with 30 active members, among other activities, strove to help these women. Providing emotional support and counsel- ing, Students For Life members sought to let these women know that abortion was not the answer to their painful situation. Many women had believed that abortion was the only answer and later regretted their quick decision: " The guilt many women feel after having an abortion is awful and only compounds to their problems, " said Bridget Hamilton, an LSA senior, " It ' s shocking how little people really know and how easily they are per- suaded by media and rhetoric. " By volunteering at pregnancy crisis centers, members were able to help the women through their traumatic time and show them that there are other options. Sue Derengoski, a School of Education senior, lived and worked at the Father Patrick Jackson House, a home for teen mothers. By helping these mothers and providing support, the Father Patrick Jackson House enabled women to create a successful future for themselves and their children: " It teaches the women a lot of responsibility. They must either be working or in school in order to live here, " said Derengoski. Sidewalk counseling at abortion clinics also enabled members to have direct contact with the women, though it was a difficult and crisis situation. " So many women say that if just one person had told them it was alright to not have an abortion, they wouldn ' t have done it, " said Derengoski. Providing emotional support, counseling, and an un- derstanding heart, Students For Life made a personal change in the fight for pro-life. 76 Michigan Life Wit " The Alan Guttmacher Institute ( the research group for Planned Parenthood) did a study in 1991. They found that 91% of women have what ' s called Post-Abortion Syndrome (PAS) and the symptom range from anxiety and guilt to suicide tendencies. That ' s the explanation for women being exploited psychologically . Women are hurt physically and emotionaly from " safe and legal abortions " , said Bridget Hamilton, shown above holding the " Abrotion Exploits Women " sign. Michigan Life 77 Facing the abortion issue PRO-CHOICE B " y Lisa Mullins Fighting with perseverance and determina- tion for women ' s reproductive rights on a campus, local, and national level, Pro-Choice Action activists made sure their voices were heard by organizing a diverse and educational Pro-Choice Ac- tion Week in October. The group ' s mission during Pro-Choice Action Week was to educate students and also urge them to take political action for reproductive rights by voting. Since the events were held a few weeks before the presidential election, it was a critical time in politics. The election of the President would also determine the abortion stand of the next Supreme Court justice, in turn sealing the fate of reproductive rights in the U.S. " People assume that their reproductive rights are secured be- cause of Roe v. Wade, but this is a false security, " said Sukie Collins, a Residential College sophomore. Events during Pro-Choice Action Week included a bucket drive in the Diag, t-shirt sales, and an informa- tion table in the Fishbowl. This table provided voting guides and a chance to petition for both the Freedom of Choice Act and RU486. A Pro-Choice Action Coffee- house held in the Michigan Union where guests were encouraged to write letters to their national and state representatives to strengthen the pro-choice cause. " One of our biggest challenges as a group is to get people involved with the cause, " said Beverly Aist, an LSA senior. " People are interested, but are not always ready to commit their time and energy. " The Coffeehouse and other activities helped to spread the fervor of Pro- Choice Action ' s drive. Key speakers were also essential in the events. At a Pro-Choice Lecture, Senator Lana Pollack and Con- gressman William Ford spoke about abortion ' s status in the political arena. Both Pollack and Ford said that abortion really should not have a place in politics; but, should be a private decision made by a woman with the help of her doctor. They also stressed the urgency for voters to actively join the cause to secure reproductive rights. Closing the events of Friday, a rally in the Diag featured guest speakers Robyn Menin, President of Washtenaw County Planned Parenthood, along with local candidates Lynn Rivers and Perry Bullard. Since the guest speakers did not talk for their entire allotted time, members of Pro-Choice Action inspired the crowds with their powerful message. " Our primary message at the rally was to wake up the silent pro-choice majority and encourage them to take action, " said Collins. The impact of Pro-Choice Action Week challenged the Pro-Life position and stirred many students into action by proving the dire need for a Pro-Choice nation. " The student response was overwhelmingly positive, " said Mary Meyer, a graduate student. " Pro- choice supporters were motivated to take action. " Their work as a group was far from being complete, but Pro- Choice Action continued to raise their voices and make a difference. 78 Michigan Life Abortion was a heated issue during the Presidential elections. Pro- Choice Action, PCA, sponsored debates and rallies such as this one on the Diag. The issue was not exclusively a woman ' s struggle. Men and women from all backgrounds participated in the debate. Greg Emmanuel Michigan Life 79 A Question of Women ' s Safety RAPE By DeAnna Heindd " I t was freshman year. I came into our room after work and my roommate was crying. She told me that her boyfriend had tried to rape her the night before. They ' d been kissing in the study lounge at the end of the hall and she said he just changed. He held her down and tried to force her. She told me that she struggled and fought until he finally gave up, let her go, and fell asleep. Her wrists were all bruised. " He was her first boyfriend and she had trusted him completely. He brought her flowers all the time and seemed so incredibly sweet. I went into shock myself when she told me. I knew the statistics, but I still never thought that I or someone I cared about would ever have to deal with the results of sexual assault. I told her she should report it, but she insisted that she didn ' t want to get him into any trouble. It was all so horrible. I kept telling her that in no way was it her fault, that the blame was all his. I looked up SAPAC ' s counseling number and told her that they could help her more than I could. " A few days later she said that she had called and that she now had a better understanding of what had happened and of how it was affecting her. Even so, for months afterward we lived with our door always locked. Before it would have been open inviting hallmates to drop in and chat. She bought an answering machine and we screened all of our calls in case one would be from him; many were. I don ' t know if she ever talked to him again, if she told him of all the pain, fear, and frustration he had caused her. 1 know from his messages that he never understood that he had done something wrong, that he felt that she was in fact being unfair to him. " The U of M student who recounted this episode of attempted date rape refused to reveal the names of anyone involved for the sake of her friend ' s privacy. Unfortunately, according to national statistics, most people could expect to encounter an experience similar to the one recalled above sometime in their lives, either as a victim or a friend of a survivor. Research showed that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 10 men would be sexually assaulted in his or her lifetime. Debi Cain, Director for the University ' s Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC), said that there was an even higher risk for sexual assault on campus. " It ' s a more vulnerable population. The whole dating environment and lack of communication between the sexes make it worse. The amount of alcohol used is also highly problematic; it increases vulnerability to sexual assault on both sides. " Cain applauded the University ' s efforts to increase safety on campus (through increased lighting, emergency phones, and security), but warned that these efforts mostly deal with preventing attacks by strangers. Over 80% of all rapes are acquaintance or date rapes. Cain emphasized the importance of using education as both prevention and solution in counter- ing this frightening reality. A large portion of SAPAC ' s efforts concentrated on informational workshops and the debunking of myths about rape. Eduardo Azziz, a SAPAC student employee, lead many types of workshops, including some in fraterni- ties. " Usually, but not always, we get called in after there has been an incident and the house leaders want the members to gain awareness. It ' s an expos facto thing. " Engineering freshman, Todd Hayne, said that he " blew off ' the workshop he went to during orientation. " I don ' t think I ' ll ever be sexually assaulted, " he declared. Furthermore he stated, that he had never really heard of a man being sexually assaulted, but that he ' d be able to physically defend himself from any attackers. Such a belief is one of the many myths SAPAC strives to uncover. School of Music Junior, Jeff Rolka, responded that he " couldn ' t imagine being raped. It ' s the most degrading and painful thing that could happen to a person. It ' s so personal, as personal as you can get. As it is, I think that if we had more mutual respect for each other things would be a lot better. We need to institute more respect for females in general. " Subjects of other myths include the fact that rape is an act of violence and not of sexual desire, the realities concerning sexual assault and women of color and gays, lesbians, and bisexuals, and the high rate of date rapes, among many more. Alex Heath, LSA Junior, brought out a common concern and often used practice with her comment, " A lot of people don ' t want to believe it [rape] happens and when it does they want to blame it on the woman. " In addition to SAPAC ' s work toward increasing awareness, the Daily, in order to remind readers that, " human beings are involved " behind the statistics, opened a weekly forum within its pages in which survivors could share their experiences; numerous people expressed outrage at an inflatable woman doll which was passed around at a football game; and RC 80 Michigan Life Greg Emmanuel Junior, Jeanette Bradley, covered the campus with posters concerning sexual assault which were labeled " guerrilla art. " In a broader effort of preventive action, Michigan passed a new law which was harsh against stalking. " A large number of calls come in about stalking. There ' s a strong link, where stalking is a part of sexual abuse, " Cain informed. Also, lobbyists fought to reintroduce the Michigan Campus Sexual Assault Victims ' Bill of Rights Act for vote. While each of these efforts combated the prolifera- tion and continuation of sexual assault, SAPAC ' s brochure reminded us that far greater measures re- Dark streets, alleys, and uncrowded areas of campus are frequently places where women fear being alone , especially at night. Though the statistics prove that most rapes occur by an acquaintance, the threat of being attacked by a stranger is nevertheless on the conscience of most women. Furthermore, after an attack, women often fear retakance or degradation if the crime is reported. Therefore, most rapes go unreponed and the treacherous men free. mained to be taken and met. Rape " is one outcome of a society that treats women and men differently and places us into sex roles which reinforce differences in power.. .We can prevent rape by re-evaluating these norms for behavior and promoting change in our gender definitions.

Camoflage, form-fitting, and lambskin were among the hottest styles. Surprise, surprise, it wasn ' t the hippest clothing store in town, but Condom Sense, a new establishment on South University devoted entirely to the promotion of safer sex. By Adam Hundley " The first and foremost theme of our store is that abstinence is the most ideal solution, " claimed Yong Kim, co-owner of Condom Sense, a recently opened " safe-sex " store on South University, " But in light of the reality of the world ' s predicament, education on safer sex, provision of condoms, and openness about this topic is necessary. " In keeping with the owners ' philosophy, the store featured posters delivering safe sex messages, including abstinence, and both stock intended to create a relaxed and open atmosphere for customers as well as to protect them. Novelty items, for instance, edible condoms and body lotions, drew most people in to browse and provided the relaxed atmosphere the owners intended. In turn, the stress-free environment made it easier for those who might be a bit squeamish to purchase condoms, dental dams, spermicidal lubricants, and any other essential safe sex items which, of course, the store carried in wide variety. Students and Ann Arbor residents expressed mixed reactions when the store opened in July. " Abstinence is important, " explained sopho- The Condom Sense store ' s grand opening in July turned many heads at the annual art fairs. It ' s unique premise ami merchandise prompted write- ups in local papers . more Andrea Cousino, " but if young adults are going to have sex it ' s important that they not feel ashamed or embarrassed about doing it the right way. " Not everyone was so supportive. " It ' s ludicrous, " intoned Ann Arbor resident Raymond Jones. " It ' s just telling college kids it ' s okay to have casual sex as long as they wear condoms. " But supporters denied charges of frivolity or pandering, noting that, although owners and workers encouraged an open atmosphere with the novelty items, signs posted prominently throughout the store warn that " Novelty condoms do not guarantee the prevention of pregnancy or transmission of disease. " In addition, more than half the wall space in the store was devoted to posters and brochures on Aids testing, STD prevention, general health, personal safety, and ecological issues. The owners explained, " We would like to be viewed as a store that pushes sensible solutions in a light manner so that the local youth and adults can be informed as well as consider the store a responsible and respectable establishment. " 82 Michigan Life - Not everyone in town seemed happy and supportive to see this sign go up in the heart of campus. Ann Arbor resident, Raymond Jones declared the store " ludicrous. " The novelty merchandise , like the condoms on display here, drew customers into the store and made for a lighted-hearted atmosphere in which to purchase actual safe sex items. Greg Emmanuel Greg Emmanuel Despite the large variety of novelty items on display and its ability to draw people into the store to browse, getting more people to practice safe sex remained the store ' s ultimate and most important purpose. in keeping with their goal to make buying into safe sex a more comfortable experience for everyone , the oumers of Condom Sense included in their stock items geared toward Michigan Life 83 Shakey joke has entertained Ann Arbor audiences for as long as anyone can remember. His distinctive voice, style, and dress have set him apart among the unique in town . 84 Michigan Life 1 An Ann Arbor Institution " Growing up in Ann Arbor, Shakey Jake has always been part of my childhood, " said LSA Junior Karen Hughes. " Actually, when I was little he used to scare me a bit. " By Peter Kogan On a chilly October night, thousands of students and area residents turned out to see and hear a man from Arkansas who came to Ann Arbor. But if Bill Clinton was under the impression that he was the most famous native of that state to grace our town with his pres- ence, he would have been off the mark. An- other Arkansan preceeded Clinton by four decades in the Athens of the Midwest, and firmly established himself as a local celebrity of almost unrivaled proportions. That man, of course, was one Jacob Woods, known to the casual observer as Shakey Jake. Such was the price of fame for a former day laborer from the Mississippi Delta who become one of the enduring symbols of Ann Arbor, together with winged helmets, the Diag, and Kerrytown. Jake ' s local notoriety was virtually unmatched: he graced postcards and bumper stickers, was routinely hailed by people on the street, and received free meals at many local restaurants. In 1991, in what must have been the ultimate tribute, a seven-foot Shakey Jake carved out of ice won first prize in the Main Street Snow Sculpting Competition. Though Jake, who came to Ann Arbor from Arkansas in the 1950s, once traveled the rails, he had been far from homeless and destitute of late. In addition to free food and other perks awarded Ann Arbor ' s most famous citizen, Jake drew a substantial income from sales of Shakey Jake memorabilia at local stores. With much free time on his hands, Jake often treated passers-by to impromptu concerts on downtown streetcorners by day, and frequented some of Ann Arbor ' s more traditional dining establish- ments by night. " He ' s a pretty harmless guy, " said LSA Junior Mike Purleski, who often served Jake at Drake ' s. " He would always tell us stories about what he was doing that night - drinking champagne and eating caviar. " Although Jake had now spent the better part of his life in a Midwestern college town, he still maintained many of his Delta roots. These were especially evident in both his profound regional accent, his easygoing demeanor, and, especially, in his music. Jake played mostly freeform versions of the downhome Delta blues these days, but, to a trained ear, the music has distinct roots in the tradition laid down by Robert Johnson, Slim Harpo, and Leadbelly, and connects Jake to a line of later performers such as Buddy Guy, Jimmy Rogers, and B.B. King. It must be acknoweledged that local musical talent over the years, from Bob Seeger and Iggy Pop to Frank Allison, the Holy Cows, and Peter " Madcat " Ruth, have Shakey Jake in their musical heritage. Certainly, Jake ' s fashion sense, of pastel colored top hats, fur coats, and spats, has influenced musicians from all genres. Jake ' s legend in Ann Arbor seemed secure from all the weariness of time and tide. While Gary Moeller could call bad plays and Chris Webber could miss a free throw, Jake could do no wrong. " I think he ' s a legend here; every- body knows who he is, " said LSA Junior Aimee Patock, summing up what seemed to be a general consensus on campus. " I always put a dollar in his basket. " Michigan Life 85 SUN Rain delay makes for a " Festisummer " Each year, the organizers have scheduled a rain date for SODC ' s an- nual organization fair, Festifall, although no one could remember it ever being used. But Mother Nature had different plans for the fall of 1992. Fortunately, She made up for the delay and Festifall unfolded on one of the most pleasant autumn days in recent memory. By Chad Hauff Every year, the Student Organization Development Center (SODC) do what they know best and organize a fair on the Diag featuring student groups and organizations from all over campus where they can show their stuff and recruit new members. The planning for the event begins in summer requiring some chanc- ing on the weather for whatever day it is set, facilitating the need to set a rain day. For many years, organizers had the good luck to schedule Festifall on days that were, if not gorgeous, at least tolerable. So organizers and participants alike were disappointed when the luck ran out and they awoke to rainy, cold weather on the intended morning of the event. Participants flooded the phone lines at SODC to learn that Festifall would be delayed one week and organizers pulled in the tables they had begun to ready for the day. But it seemed fortune had not entirely forsaken the event: the rescheduled day dawned sunny and warm. Festifall ' s coordinator, Beth Adler, declared the event, " the most succes sful Festifall ever, " adding that she thought the weather a major reason for the success. Adler based her judge- ment on the number of organizations to participate and the number of people who attended the fair. Two-hundred thirty organiza- tions, fifty more than the previous year, set up tables, put on performances, and handed out fliers around the Diag to entice new members to their organizations, and organizers estimated that at least 3,000 students attended the event based on the fact that SODC handed out 3,000 Organization Directories. Although SODC claimed the larger numbers indicated the most successful Festifall ever, not everyone agreed with them. The increase in numbers was not necessarily evidenced in every organization ' s final reports. Abe Radmanesh, director of Campus Crusade for Christ, did recognize the large number of people on the Diag that day, but said, " We only got half of last year ' s response because of our bad location. " Another anonymous student did not believe the larger number of organizations provided enough variety, stating, " I ' m not a minority. I can ' t sign up for anything, " although most people agreed that there was something for everyone at the fair. 86 Michigan Life Junior Maggie Kronk directs first year student Lisa Drayer to an organization on the other side of the fair . Information tables and maps helped people find the groups that interested them. Impact, a modem dance group, dance in front of the Grad library at FestifaU ' s peak hour, 12:00 noon. Other groups who performed on the popular Diag " stage " included a mariachi band and the AmaTin ' Blue. The Folk Dance Club performs on the lawn behind their table. Festifall organizers encouraged performance groups to put on roving shows , lending a carnival-like atmosphere to Festifall.

Michigan Life 87 Rallying in Ingalls Mall after participating in traditional rituals , Native Americans protest the celebration of Columbus Day. 88 Michigan Life Clements Library housed an elaborate exhibit featuring not only the traditional colonial maps , letters and artwork associated with Columbus ' voyage, but concentrating on Native American collections . PROTEST SURROUNDS COLUMBUS DAY October 12th of this year marked the 500th year of Christopher Co- lumbus ' coming to the land known as America. Following his wake, as the exploitation of Christianity was used as an excuse to conquer the Native people and their land, there spread a fiery path of death, sla- very, and corruption. For all that, people have named this day Colum- bus Day, a national holiday that celebrates Columbus ' " discovery. " By Myrna Jackson October 1492. Columbus sailed the ocean blue. More than half the population thought that Columbus discovered America, knowing that Native Americans had been here for thousands of years before him, and that Vikings visited here after the Native Americans. Those people were professionals; teachers, doctors, entrepre- neurs, people who were supposed to be changing the country for the better. LSA senior Monica Barnett said, " Columbus didn ' t discover America. He made this country a reality for Europeans, but he didn ' t discover anything. There should be no such thing as Columbus Day. It should be called History of America Day. Native Americans were here before Columbus, therefore he didn ' t discover anything. Well, if he can discover America, I ' m going to discover California. I am offended. " Others, like LSA sophomore Mary Moroschan, said, " Columbus day is like any- thing else. He didn ' t discover this country, but he conquered it. I can understand the Natives being so upset, because being conquered is not something good to be remembered. I don ' t understand why it needs to be celebrated because the outcome meant death for a lot of Natives. " But although there were no celebrations for the day in Michigan, there were many parades and parties on the east coast. Schools even canceled classes to give students the day off to celebrate. LSA sophomore Liz Hatch simply said, " I don ' t think that anyone here really cares. It ' s just another day. " Native American students took Columbus Day as an opportunity to cry out for 500 years of oppression. For the week prior to and on Columbus Day, they put on a demonstration, and hosted several guest speakers including Norma Rendon, Eddie Benton, and Russell Barsh. Natural Resources senior, and President of the Native American Student Association, Dawn De Marsh said, " I think it ' s a tragedy that a lot of people think that Columbus coming here was the greatest thing. Because he came here and claimed he discovered this land everyone thinks it ' s okay. I hope that we as Native American people can change this attitude in the next 500 years.

Like all large, multi-cultural campuses, the University was not immune to the problems of racial tension and discrimination. Administrators and faculty addressed the problem with the Race and Ethnicity Requirement and other measures, but many students said they needed to take their own initiatives to educate them- selves and their peers. In 1987, when African Americans and progressive student groups organized to fight racism, the Ella Baker- Nelson Mandela Center for Anti-racist Education (BMC) was created, and five years later it continued the struggle against racial and sexual discrimination on campus and throughout Ann Arbor. " The BMC, " according to organizers, " is dedicated to the principle of thinking in order to act. " Its main objective was to make students aware of the problem of discrimination so they could make intelligent and informed responses. Toward these ends, the center maintained a library and resource center with such publica- tions as " Race and Class " and " The Progressive, " produced its own 92 Academics publications, and ran a speakers ' bureau and consultation service. " The BMC challenges existing ways of thinking and acting, which are often Euro-centric, racist, sexist, and homophobic, " organiz- ers said. The center also sponsored many educational and cultural events. Every year, for example, the BMC organized a " cultural night " during which people from different cultures came together to share ideas and heritages, reflect on their histories, and create bonds for unified struggles. Other events included campus and community forums on a variety of topics ranging from AIDS education to women in the South African liberation struggle. Students had mixed opinions of the center. LSA junior Erica Hawkins, for example, said racism did exist on campus and be- lieved education was the key to eliminating it. " People don ' t understand the complexity of the problem, " she said. " Racism is ignorance, which is sad. " But although she said the center was a " valuable resource, " she doubted that the students who lacked a knowledge or appreciation of other cultures would take advantage of it. " On this campus, it ' s like if I ' m not a minority, I don ' t have to discuss issues of racism, " she said. Among the many posters and magazines that filled the reading BAKER NElSON MANDE1A CENTER FOR ANTI-RACIST EDUCATION Greg Emmanuel room of the Baker-Mandela Center, a small pamphlet proclaimed that " racism is everyone ' s problem. " The center emphasized this sentiment as the key to understanding and eliminating racism, and despite obstacles student workers and volunteers continued to stress the importance of education and understanding and sought to teach students that racism touched all of our lives. The Center stressed that education was the key to ightingrocism. Conferences, seminars, and programs helped to address the issues, but the BMC emphasized that students needed to work to combat the problem in their friends and themselves. Activist posters and slogans adorned the walls of the BMC offices. The center also main- tained publications like " Voices of Struggle " arul information for minority students and workers.

Even with the advent of computers and typing machines , participants proved writing is not a lost art. LSA sophomore Grace de la Pena perfects her style in calligraphy class. To say college life is stressful would be cliche. First year law student Linda Terry, graduate student Laura Nunez, and sophomore Kelly Gelino enrolled in oga class to do something rather than just talk about the stresses of college . Students often said they came to college to expand their horizons and explore new and unusual subjects. Traditionally this meant taking courses in classical civilizations, anthropology, or African cultures, but Michigan students were anything but tradi- tional. Learning everything from ancient forms of self-defense to modern card games, students acquired more unusual skills in non- credit classes offered by the University Activities Center (UAC) and Adult Lifestyles Program. " Education to me is not just memorizing names and dates, " said LSA sophomore and amateur scuba diver Joshua Blunt. " I want to experience things and learn new skills. " Blunt said the non-credit classes taught him skills that he couldn ' t learn in the classroom. " When you ' re out in the water, you learn a lot about fast decision making and problem solving, " Blunt said. " Even though scuba- diving is not an everyday activity, making decisions and solving problems are. " Although scuba diving was too rigorous and demanding for some students, the UAC and Adult Lifestyles Program offered something for everyone. In dance class students did their best Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers impersonations; in billiards class they learned to put just the right " english " on the ball; and for those who wished to polish skills learned at innumerable parties, bartending class used colored water to teach the fine art of mixing and preparing over 100 drinks. Students admitted that many of the classes taught unusual skills and that they had few opportunities to show off their talents, but 94 Academics Ann Arfcor citizen Philip King already signs and is just sitting in on this class to converse with the people who are just teaming theneui language through the VAC course. Greg Emmanuel Greg Emmanuel they emphasized the fun and importance of learning new and interesting subjects. " Even if I can ' t ballroom dance everyday, " said School of Education senior Megan Robertson, " the class was a lot of fun and added a new dimension to my more traditional skills as a dancer. " Likewise, other students said calligraphy and photog- raphy classes added to their artistic and creative talents, self-defense and dance classes refined their athletic skills, and yoga classes enabled them to concentrate and think better in all aspects of their lives. Organizers and participants stressed that students were never embarrassed or put on the spot in the classes and that everyone was welcome. " It was nice to escape the competition and tension of regular classes, " said Blunt. " In the non-credit classes everyone helped everyone else and had fun. " The only students who were not made welcome were the unfortunate few who were under 2 1 and wanted to take the wine-tasting course. " I was disappointed that I couldn ' t take the class, " said LSA sophomore Paul Bilger, " but I guess you can ' t use colored water in a wine-tasting class like you can in the bartending class. " Students received no academic credit for the classes they took. They received no grades that rewarded their hard work. But they gained something that many said was even better. " Reading and writing are important, " Blunt said, " but there ' s no substitute for getting out there and experiencing new things for yourself. " Academics 95 Variation on a theme by Adam Hundley The fall term theme semester emphasized multiculturalism Students and administrators often stressed the need for multiculturalism and an understanding and appreciation of how various races and ethnic groups interacted in modern society. This need became even more urgent as students protested and debated the celebration of the 500th anniversary of Columbus ' arrival in the New World. To address the tensions and help to facilitate an understanding of the holiday and the questions it raised, the University initiated a theme semester titled " The Americas Then and Now: Beyond 1492. " The idea for the theme semester originated during a 1991 Diversity Day discussion between University and Ann Arbor Public School faculty members on the need to reteach the history of European expansion. Organizers said most junior high and high school students learned expansion from a European perspective and learned little about such pernicious consequences of colonization as forced migrations of Native Americans, warfare, and the spread of deadly diseases. " We ' ve made a con- certed effort to provide a perspective that you might not have learned about in school ten years ago, " said theme semester coordinator James Mclntosh. Organizers said the theme semester was not intended to praise or attack Columbus or to condemn European expansion. Rather, it focused on the impact of colonization on the cultures already present in the New World and the tensions and conflicts that have plagued the various cultures ever since. " Usually, it ' s Columbus that gets all the attention, " said Mclntosh. " People forget there was a vibrant, living civilization in America. He didn ' t so much discover it as encounter it. " Organizers hoped that by focusing on the New World culture and Native American response to colonization students would attain a broader and more balanced view of European expansion in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. To reinforce this view, theme semester coordinators organized many discussions and debates to address these themes. Theme semester organizer Judith Elkin, for example, directed a series of conferences titled " Jews and the Encounter with the New World, " emphasizing the need for a broader understanding of the many races and cultures affected by the European expansion of the seventeenth century. Organizers also invited several guest lecturers B i " tk 96 Academics 1 ih t , I.I.I III ' The Clements Library displayedpaintings and drawings by European and Native American artists throughout the semester. Organizers stressed the richness of cul- tures present in America before Colum- bus ' arrival. Greg Emmanuel to address such problems as colonization and Native American resistance and approved an interdisciplinary mini-course to consider the cultural and historical bases of racism and prejudice in modern society. Most students praised the intent of the theme semester. " Before people can make an intelligent evaluation of Columbus and expansion, they have to know the facts, " said School of Nursing sophomore Mary Swager. " I know some people still think Colum- bus was the first person in America or that colonization was completely harmless and beneficial, and that just clouds the issue and makes it impossible to address the questions. " Swager empha- sized that students cannot properly address racial tensions on campus and in their communities until they understand the reasons and historical bases for modern conflicts. Students and theme semester organizers stressed that the problem and conflicts engendered 500 years ago still exist in modern society. Problems of racism, prejudice, and racial tension that underlay twentieth century social interactions can still be traced to European expansion and the broader problem of multiculturalism that it exemplified. By adopting the theme semester, therefore, the University hoped not only to shed light on the events and significance of 1492, but also to illuminate and perhaps mitigate some of the conflict and tension that exists in our own age. Academics 97 Time flies when ou ' re at UM by Adam Hundley Students remarked how fast their four years went. In their underclass years, University students took much for granted: the security of almost unlimited freedom and few respon- sibilities, good friends, and the familiar sights of Ann Arbor. But for seniors going on to the work force or professional schools, the experience and challenge of living in Ann Arbor and attending the University finally came to an end. With mixed emotions they reflected on their student years and the transition from college to the real world. " I ' m very, very glad to be getting out of here, " said Art School senior Holli Rahl. " I feel like I ' ve done my time. " She hesitated, though, when she thought about her future away from the Univer- sity. " I think I have all the skills necessary to succeed, I just don ' t know if the world will let me succeed, " she said. Like many students Rahl hoped to attend graduate school in lieu of searching for work in a flooded job market. Although Rahl said she disliked the demands and pressures placed on her by friends and teachers, she said she learned a lot about herself in four years. " The situations I was placed in taught me to speak up and voice my opinions and work for what I wanted, " Rahl said. Although she was anxious about leaving her friends and the security of her life at the University, she hoped these new skills would serve her well in her career and personal life. Senior Melissa Warren said she will miss the routines and places that made Ann Arbor unique: hanging out at her favorite restaurants, walking to the stadium Saturday mornings, and spending time with friends. And although she expected many of her daily routines to remain the same at graduate school, she said 98 Academics X, , Fearing the transition rom college to the ifork orce, sophomore Nicfci Regner gets a head start on the job market by studying the employment outlook for occupational therapists. Career Planning and Placement is an office most students ao not know about until their senior year when they become heavily dependent on services there. Greg Emmanuel she will miss the variety of people and personalities in Ann Arbor. " I ' ll miss the people, the students, my friends, and my teachers, " she said. She remarked, though, that her first years here were difficult, and that she was looking forward to attending a smaller college for graduate school. " I won ' t miss the size of Michigan; the feeling of being just another number, " she said. Warren said she was confident that the skills she learned at the University would help her adjust better to new situations and challenges in the future. " I was kind of confused and scared when I got here, " she said, " but now I feel more confident and better able to deal with new people and places. " LSA senior Amy Lantinga said the size of Michigan added to the experience. " I think I ' m going to miss the sense of community here, " she said. " At the football games, for example, you know you have 106,000 people on your side. When I leave, it will feel like I ' m alone. " She also said she will miss the pride she felt when she reflected on the quality of the University or heard about the important work and research being conducted here. " I always felt like I was part of something special when was here, " she said. She said she will especially miss walking on the Diag and past the Law Quad and the Medical School. Lantinga said she will be glad, though, when she does not have to deal with University red tape any more. " I won ' t miss the bureau- cracy here, " she said. " This should be a place of learning, not politics. " She said many professors and administrators were more concerned with research and money than with students. But overall, she valued the opportunities the University provided. " I ' m afraid that I won ' t be as happy somewhere else; that there won ' t be as many opportunities for me elsewhere as I had here, " she said. With a bit of regret, most graduating seniors remarked how fast their four years went . Perhaps that it is an indication of their maturity and sense of passing out of childhood into adulthood. But more likely it is a reflection of the extraordinary people, places, and events that filled their days and made the time pass quickly. Most seniors agreed that the University afforded them many unique opportunities and experiences, and hoped their years here would provide them with many more inthe future. Academics 99 Double Shifting It by Adam Hundley Students tried to balance classes with part-time jobs. College students often complained that they did not have enough time to do all their homework and enjoy their friends and devote sufficient energy to extracurricular activities. But for those who held part-time jobs during the school year the problem proved even more difficult, as work schedules, financial concerns, and stressful jobs added to existing pressures. Despite the problems, though, many students admitted they learned a lot about themselves and other people and the real world by working while attending classes at the University. " The job is beneficial to me because it helps me pay my way through college, " said Natural Resources sophomore Arlene Olivero, " and I ' ve always found that if I have a lot of free time I tend to waste it, so the job helps me to manage my time better. " Olivero worked about 14 hours a week at the Dentistry Library. She said her work added a dimension to her education that classroom work could not provide. " Working gives you good experi- ence, especially in dealing with the work force and getting along with other people, " she said. And she claimed the time com- mitment didn ' t effect her academic and extracurricular commitments greatly. " You don ' t have as much time to study, " she said, " but if you manage time well it works out. " She admitted, though, that working at a library allowed her time to study that other working students didn ' t have. LSA junior Eric Muir said his job at the information desk at East Quad added rather than subtracted from his enjoyment of friends and social activities. " I live outside East Quad now so the job lets me keep in touch with friends, " he said. " Also, you get exposed to a lot of issues in a residence hall that you wouldn ' t if you worked somewhere else. " He said that the work entailed a lot of interaction among supervisors and co-workers and the general public, and taught him skills that he didn ' t learn reading books or attending lectures. " I ' ve learned a lot 100 Academics Tegan Jones about dealing with students and when I worked for orientation over the summer I learned a lot about dealing with adults, " he said. " A job is a people-oriented kind of work, " he added. LSA junior Jon Lajiness admitted part-time jobs could add to the stress of classes, especially during exams or finals, but he said he enjoyed his work at the front desk at South Quad. " It ' s hard but it adds something to the college experience, " he said. " You get to be around students more, and you feel more a part of the University. " He also said the job helped him to follow instructions and work with his supervi- sors. " Working with the elder staff has prepared me for the job market, " he said. Many students and alumni claim sarcastically that college is only a dream world that entails few responsibilities and teaches little practi- cal knowledge of the real world. But for those who worked part-time during their years here, the routine of reading books and attending classes was augmented by practical experience with time cards, pay- roll, supervisors, and clients. Most students said the work put extra demands on them, but they hoped the additional skills they learned would help them better understand and adjust to the permanent work force when they graduated. Many students sought employment at busi- nesses on South University and State Street. When business was slow they stole a minute to study for exams or catch up on homework. Tegan Jones Hundreds of student workers found time to read or study at over two dozen libraries around campus. Academics 101 A ace of their own by Adam Hundley The UGLI finally opened its doors to late night studiers For many students in years past, the stress of cramming for tests and finishing homework was augmented by the lack of study facilities afforded by the University; libraries closed early and workers kicked students out of empty classrooms around midnight. Finally, though, late-night studiers found a haven at the Under- graduate Library, which extended its hours after months of negotiations and discussions with students. The 24-hour library became a hot topic in early 1992 as the Conservative Coalition of the Michigan Student Assembly made it a platform promise. The University estimated that the extended hours would cost the University an additional $40,000 to $50,000 a year, but Vice President for Student Affairs Maureen Hartford espoused the cause and negotiated for the funds from the Univer- sity. " Students were asking for a safe study area that had access to resource materials. It seemed if there was anything we could do to facilitate extended hours it was something we should do, " Hartford said. Students noted that the policy still needed some work. The library, for example, was not technically open 24 hours, since it was closed from five o ' clock to eight o ' clock. Other students were concerned about safety for students walking home early in the morning; at three or four o ' clock it was not uncommon to see two or three taxis waiting by the side of the building to pick up students. Other students questioned the appropriateness of using funds to keep the library open during early morning hours given University budget constraints, and others wondered why the extended hours were needed at all. " It seems like there should be places in the dorms for first-year students and sophomores to study in, and juniors and seniors should be able to study in their apartments, " said Engineering junior Tom Hemer. But many students praised the extra hours, noting that at least 1 02 Academics Many late-night studiers said the library setting helped them to stay awake longer, but for others, fatigue proved too strong to resist.

" I don ' t think the extra money is going to hurt the University, " said LSA sophomore Jasel Reshamwala. " Libraries should be open later than midnight; it ' s a valuable service for the students. " Like football Saturdays, waiting in line for CRISP, and hanging out on the Diag, staying up late and cramming for tests was a tradition among the chronic procrastinators and over-worked students at the University. But at last, instead of keeping up roommates and falling asleep on couches, students had a place to study late into the night and hopefully complete their work before the sun rose on a new day. " " , Greg Emmanuel Academics 103 Not just the facts, ma ' am by Adam Hundley Quiz Bowl demanded brains and fast reflexes. Students who memorized names and dates and equations in their history and science courses often wondered where and when they would ever apply their knowledge. For some, the answer was simple: at the College Bowl quiz tournament. Quick reflexes and trivial facts were the order of the day as nearly 40 teams and 200 students vied for the title of Quiz Bowl champion. The annual competition pitted teams of four, seeded according to a diagnostic test, in a double-elimination tournament. The competi- tion was often intense and competitors took the matches very seri- ously, but they were not averse to a little humor to relieve the tension: team names included Brain Damage, The Abyss of Knowledge, and the Festering Pustules. Competitors said the questions started out comparatively easy but became progres- sively harder as teams were eliminated from the tournament. And the questions tested many areas of knowledge. In one match, competitors were asked to name the Cincinnati Reds pitcher who hit for himself in the 1992 All-Star Game, and soon after to determine the chemical formula for propane. Students said the tournament empha- sized knowledge of English language and literature, history, and natural sciences, with several questions devoted to sports, art, and music. Competitors emphasized that knowledge was not enough to win the matches. " Most of the participants knew a lot of facts and were very intelligent, " said LSA sophomore Vijay Nath, " but I noticed that a lot of them were frustrated throughout the tournament. They key is fast reflexes and excellent recall skills. " Nath added that the tournament was not a true test of students ' knowledge. " A lot of the 104 Academics QuizBowl participants ponder a question in an early-round match . " The key is getting four people with specialties in different areas so all the bases are covered, " said LSA junior Paul Kayemba. Members of the teamOctavius EtAl. work together to find the right answer. Students were not allowed to speak to each other except during bonus questions. eg Emmanuel best players devote a lot of time to playing trivia games and memoriz- ing names and dates. It doesn ' t mean they ' re any smarter than anyone else. " Some players questioned the way the competition was run. LSA sophomore John Deluca said he was upset that some of the students who ran the competition also competed on teams. " I know they weren ' t cheating, " he said, " but it seemed inappropriate to have insiders playing in the matches. " Nonetheless, most students said they enjoyed the spirit of the competition. For once they were rewarded for their knowledge of obscure names and dates, and instead of facing the constant stress of competing for grades and friends, they were briefly allowed to fight for supremacy with nothing more than hand buzzers and their knowledge of trivia. Greg Emmanuel Academics 105 Reading between the lines by Adam Hundley Did professors and bookstores put students in a bind? There were many things budget-conscious students could do without: some cut down on their meal plans or bought their own food to save money, and some made the supreme sacrifice of foregoing basketball or football tickets. But all students needed to buy books for their classes, and many bookstores and professors were accused of cashing in on this need by raising prices and making unnecessary demands on students. " I know that some of the bookstores are owned by the same company and the prices they all charge are too high, " said Engi- neering junior Tom Hemer. He said he spent up to $300 on books each semester and often paid $50 or $60 for engineering textbooks. Many students expressed a similar concern, noting that Michi- gan Book and Supply, Ulrich ' s, and the Union bookstore handled the majority of book purchases at the University. " Every semester I spend about $200 on books, " said LSA sophomore Jasel Reshamwala. " When you spend over $75 for one class, it ' s tridiculous, " she said. She said the bookstores should have lowered prices to ease the burden on money-conscious students. But LSA sophomore Sharif Razzaque defended the book stores. " I can easily spend $400 on textbooks, " he said, " but hey ' re really nice published books and they get a lot of use. " Razzaque also said University textbooks were so specialized they should cost more than popular literature. " Textbooks are a product of years of research and composition, " he said, " and if you want the best, most recent scholarship it ' s going to cost more money. " Students also criticized professors who assigned their own textbooks and required students to buy new editions of textbooks that were only slightly modified from year to year. " I can see how it could be helpful for a professor to assign his own textbook, " said 106 Academics First-year student Benjamin Williamson checks the prices of textbooks at the Union Bookstore hoping to find the best deal in town . Many students compared prices at Ulrica ' s, Michigan Book and Supply, and the Union before tackling the long lines and making their final purchases . Greg Emmanuel LSA junior Todd Zornick, " buy I worry that they take advantage of this privilege. " But Razzaque claimed the practice actually enhanced the learning process. " I think professors assign their own textbooks because they feel most comfortable with their own work or because they honestly feel it ' s the best work available. " But Reshamwala said, " My Anthropology textbook was poorly written and didn ' t help me at all, so I wonder why that professor assigned it, " she said. She claimed the professor assigned a new edition to cash in on the royalties received from book sales. But Rassaue emphasized that new editions of textbooks were often necessary. " This is a research university, " he said. " New discoveries and hypotheses are being made all the time, and it ' s important that students have the most up-to-date information on their subject. " He also said professors often revised or edited textbooks because they found new and better ways to present or explain their findings. Many students sought innovative ways to avoid the high costs of buying textbooks. Some searched for assigned books in the library and tried to check them out for the semester instead of buying them. Others bought books from friends who took the class in the past or from the Student Book Exchange. The most common practice was to buy used books from the bookstores. Although some students objected to using used books, others said they saved 20 to 30 percent on their purchases and often found copies that looked brand new. Many students sold their books back to the bookstores at the end of the semester, but they complained that the money they received was minimal. " When I sold my books back I got almost no money, " said Reshamwala. But a representative from Ulrich ' s said the store was providing a service for the students, and that if students thought the buy-back price was too low they could keep their books. After paying hundreds or thousands of dollars to take a course, many students felt cheated that they had to pay hundreds more for books and coursepacks. Those who kept their books undoubtedly had reading material to enjoy for years to come, but they also had a reminder of a practice that caused many students anger and frustration throughout their college years. Academics 107 Does not compute by Adam Hundley Computing centers were invaluable and unpredictable. In the past, the only obstacles to composing a good essay lay in the writer ' s inability to express original or logical thoughts. But as computer technology swept the campus and students took advan- tage of the latest word processing programs, this problem was compounded by faulty disks, long lines at the computing centers, malfunctioning computers, and many other problems. Most students praised the computing resources offered by the University, but they all stressed that the complexity of the technology and students ' demand invariably presented them with many unforeseen frustrations. The University owned computing centers throughout campus, from small clusters at the major residence halls to large centers of 50 to 200 computers at Angell Hall, North University Building Station (NUBS), and Michigan Union. Even this was not enough, though, as students waited in lines at the major computing sites late at night and especially around exam time. " I ' ve really been 108 Academics happy with the University ' s computers, " said LSA senior Bryan Little, " except during midterms and finals when it ' s impossible to get one. " Employees at Angell Hall computing center said their wait-list grew into the hundreds around exam time and students said they waited as long as three hours to get a computer. Most students admitted, however, that t he wait was the students ' fault. " Waiting in line is just bad planning, " said Little. " Computers are always available somewhere, especially if you don ' t wait until the last minute when everyone needs them. " Even those who secured computers, though, were not immune to problems. Little noted that he had to wait longer at NUBS and he worried about the safety of his work because a large number of computers were broken. LSA sophomore Susan Lyon remarked that many of the computing center assistants were unfriendly or unhelpful. " Sometimes when you really need their help they ' re not around or they don ' t want to be bothered, " she said. School of Natural Resources sophomore Matthew Zisman praised the facilities offered by the University. " The Angell Hall center must be one of the best in the country, " he said. " Even places like Berkeley don ' t have the kind of technology we have here. " He also said if students managed their time they could ii r Greg Emmanuel always find an open computer and complete their work with few hassles. He noted, though, that most students procrastinated and overflowed the computing centers the week before exams. He related a story of waiting 45 minutes just to print a paper before finals because so many people were writing essays at the same time. Zisman also noted that the University offered students more resources than they knew about. " The University should do a better job making students aware of this because we ' re paying for it anyway. " For students who did know, services like the Michigan Terminal System (MTS) allowed them to send messages to their professors and friends at the University and across the country. " I love MTS, " said Lyon, " but it ' s such a distraction because I go in to write a paper and I end up writing to my friends for two hours. " Although most students related at least one story about an erased disk, broken computer, or two-hour wait the day before a paper was due, they all stressed the importance and necessity of the computing facilities at the University. " The resources are so good, owning your own computer really is a waste of money, " said Little. Although computers could not actually compose essays or improve writing styles, most students said the technology played a central role in their academic lives and helped them better organize complex thoughts and ideas and conserve precious time and energy. Even on " off " days Angell Hall Computing Center hummed with students writing papers and finishing projects. " It ' sagreat place to work because so many other people are always working there, " said LSA sophomore Matt Zisman. Students read newpapers and finish homework while waiting for a computer. Sometimes the wait lasted an hour or two , and during finals it was even longer. LSA senior Tim Carter writes a paper at Angel Hall. Most students praised the computing facilities but feared malfunc- tions and breakdowns. Academics 109 Parla italiano? by Adam Hundley Students said bon jour to foreign language requirements. For the most part, college students were given a great deal of free choice in the subjects they studied; the mandatory English and math courses and eight hour days that characterized most high schools were replaced by relatively unrestrictive distribution requirements and three or four hour school days. But even college students could not escape the two-year foreign language require- ment implemented by the University. In order to gain proficiency in at least one foreign language before they graduated, many students said an unenthusiastic " bon jour " to languages during their undergraduate education. " I ' m only taking the class to fill the requirement, " said French student and LSA sophomore Kevin Bowen, " otherwise there ' s no way I ' d be taking it. " Bowen and others agreed that distribution requirements enabled students to gain a well-rounded liberal arts education, but they objected to specific courses being mandated. " I think it ' s absolutely ridiculous for the central government to tell 35,000 students they have to learn something, " Bowen said. He argued that the requirement often engendered resentment and anger in students and thus narrowed students ' appreciation of foreign languages and cultures. LSA junior Craig Kaplan even questioned the motives behind the policy. " Basically it just keeps us in school longer so the administration can make more money, " he said. Kaplan studied Latin to enhance his understanding of ancient and medieval cultures, but he said students studying natural sciences should not have been forced to fulfill the requirement. " It ' s like telling a classics major he can ' t graduate until he takes two years of organic lie. 110 Academics This Spanish student watches a video and takes notes at the Language Resource Center. Some students studied dead languages to avoid the cumbersome equipment and long listening assignments at the Center. Greg Emmanuel chemistry, " he said. Other students approved of the policy but wondered why foreign language was considered more essential than other subjects. " I liked taking French because a lot of my favorite authors wrote in French, " said LSA senior Sean McCready, " but I never understood why foreign langauge was required and not a math or computer science course. " McCready suggested letting students take a calculus or computer science class to meet the requirement. " Learning a computer language is very similar to learning a foreign language, " he said. " A lot of the natural sciences and social sciences have a special language of their own that is just a s valuable to understand. " He said other schools at the University, such as the Art School, should have foreign language requirements as well. " If a physics or psychology major has to learn a language, " he asked, " why not a dance major or painter? " LSA sophomore Joe Settineri defended the requirement and said his years of taking Italian allowed him to speak with many of his Italian relatives and added to his understanding of foreign cultures and ideas. " It adds another dimension to your knowledge, " he said. Settineri admitted that math and other courses were important but said foreign languages taught much more than foreign words and phrases. " Languages teach you about other cultures and they also teach you about English and the English language, " he said. Nonetheless, many students still tried to circumvent the policy in one way or another. Many hoped to place out of the language requirement at freshman orientation by performing well on a test. Others studied an ancient language like Latin or Greek so they wouldn ' t have to speak or write the language or spend long hours in the language lab. Administrators insisted that language classes taught invaluable skills and helped students to compete in a multi-cultural society and global economy. More often for students, though, the classes represented two years of frustration and skills that quickly fell into disuse. Some enjoyed the experience, but many others were relieved to complete their two years and kiss that foreign tongue " au revoir.

" f Most Central Campus residents were met with this question at least once r during their time in Ann Arbor. Surprisingly, many of them were unable to give an answer. During Orientation, no one was required to know the whereabouts of North Campus. As a matter of fact, it was rarely brought up in conversation, and often only by accident. " I didn ' t know about North Campus for an entire year, " stated LSA senior Greg Antilla. " I was riding my bike to visit a friend and sort of ended up there. " Many of those who did know something about North Campus only had unsubstanti- ated rumors and stereotypes to pass along. The common stereotype for a North Campus resident was a geeky engineer, quirky art or architecture student or flaky music major (most likely a first year student) who did not like to party and never left North Campus except for English 125. Wrong! According to engineering junior Michelle Zimmerman, " We had a great time living in Bursley! We had fun whether we went to Central Campus or not. " But anyone who took the time to venture up to North Campus found it a gem. Just a stone ' s throw from the bustling pavement of Central Campus, were rolling green hills sur- rounded on every side by trees. Even the aesthetically-pleasing buildings were placed to create a spacious atmosphere. People felt differently on North Campus. The feeling reflected the quiet beauty of the setting and the diversity of the students, whether they were students enrolled in art, architec- ture, engineering, music or LSA. Northern Exposure 1 1 5 " After the forty-five minute wait and the twenty minute ride, I could have walked to class. " busing CHALLENGE By Brenda Gooch 116 Northern Exposure One of the more dreaded things to do on this campus was to commute. Whether it was from North Campus to Central Campus or vice versa, many found it time consuming and a hassle. The list of complaints was never-ending: the wait out in the cold, the mad scramble for a seat, and, of course, seeing the bus pull away just before you got to the stop, to name a few. This year, however, the commuters had an added difficulty: The city determined Fuller Bridge unsafe for all buses. This meant that the buses had to take a detour on Plymouth Road, " indefinitely. " The detour to Plymouth Road was eight minutes longer causing several scheduling problems. Because all the bus time schedules were printed before the " closing " of Fuller Bridge, no time allowances were made for the new routes. The new routes caused an imbalance in the steady flow of students. Due to re-routing, students who lived on Central Campus and commuted to classes on North Campus had to take the Northwood buses as the Bursley-Baits route no longer included stops at the North Campus Commons. Yet no one seemed to know when Fuller Bridge would be fixed, not even the Univer- sity Transportation Services. " My understanding is that the City of Ann Arbor has made a commitment to restore full traffic to Fuller Bridge by September 1993, " said Bitsy Lamb, the department ' s Bus Foreman. Transportation Services could, however, only speculate as the real responsibility fell on the City of Ann Arbor. According to the city ' s Department of Street Maintenance, Fuller Bridge topped their priority list, but they added they were waiting for money and time. First, they needed the money to begin repairs. Second, the early winter pushed any chance of construction to the spring. What did the students think about this? Stephanie Boyse, LSA senior said, " The buses aren ' t that different from past years. Now they run every ten minutes where before it was every seven. " Yet many students felt differently. Riding on the buses or waiting at the bus stop, many complaints could be heard. Such as LSA first-year student Andrea Whitmore ' s, " After the forty-five minute wait and the twenty minute ride, I could have walked to class. " Many students found that the buses did not come every ten minutes and therefore they were forced to waste valuable time. But, " Whatever you think about the buses now, it will be worse in winter, " Justin Schulman, first-year Kinesiology student, predicted. Since the buses were forced to take Plymouth Road, a road under the jurisdiction of the City of Ann Arbor, University snow plows could not clear it. When the snows came, students complained even more. 8:45 a.m. Students eager to get to their respective nine o ' clock classes line the side ofDuffield Avenue . The bus fills up in seconds leaving a handful of students to wait out the descent of another bus from the Baits parking lot. 8:50 a.m. Yet anotherbus barrels down the hill from Baits to pick up the stragglers from the last run. AR of the students have a seat on the bus and are , despite the short wait , probably going to make it to class on time. 8:57 a.m. Another quiet crowd slowly gathers at the stop and shuffles closer to the street as the distinct sound of the bus can be heard. Everyone files on the bus, and only a few must stand for the bus ride to Central Campus. 9:03 a.m. Just in the nick of time, the Bursley Express bus appears and whisks four or five students off to class. Unfortu- nately these students will be late for class , but such is the life for North CampUS residents . Photos by Mary Cummings Northern Exposure 117 where the ARTISTS JL.

Many art and architecture students were very familiar with the gallery, as it was often used to display student and faculty works. Although perhaps on fewer occasions, visitors from outside the building stumbled upon the Slusser Gallery. " I didn ' t even know about the gallery until a friend took me there when we lived on North Campus, " explained engineering junior Matt Geyman. " I enjoyed it very much. " Architecture student Kathleen Doyle added, " I think the existence of the Slusser gallery is a great opportunity for students. Having one ' s work displayed, where it ca n be enjoyed as well as critiqued by others, is beneficial to all involved. " The gallery covered 3600 square feet. The high ceilings and liberal use of glass gave the gallery a unique design. Students and faculty walking along the second floor balcony had the perspective of peering down into the gallery through windows that topped the walls. In sticking with the design of the rest of the art and architecture building, one of the gallery ' s walls was entirely glass, making the space that much more pleasing and open to light. From September through July, the gallery was open exhibiting mainly the works of students, although faculty works were also abundantly found. " We do have about one or two outside shows a year, " said Heather Dornoff, Secretary for Exhibitions. These exhibitions were occasionally displayed in the cases outside of the gallery itself, allowing the entire gallery to be used for student projects. " The gallery exists to benefit both the student and the school. " Artwork was selected for display in the gallery by the Exhibition Committee a committee of professors who worked together to determine the contents of the gallery from month to month. The funding for the gallery came primarily from the Friends of Jean Paul Slusser fund, the namesake of the gallery. The fund was used for periodical upgrades as well as daily mainte- nance and staffing. Not all art is as simple as canvas, and " Heavy Light " is no exception. This light, created by Prof. Mark Gordon, is hung low to the ground producing a unique effect. Northern Exposure 121 afordgn TONGUE By Chad Hauff 122 Northern Exposure The busy youngsters settled themselves to watch the video " It ' s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown " (above) before they decorated Halloween cookies with the help of second year LSA student-volunteer Audra Lindenmuth (left). Every Monday and Wednesday for an hour and a half, a few university students gathered in a classroom on North Campus to play the role of TA. In the classroom, English was taught as a second language, and the students were children ages five through eight. The student TAs acted as conversational partners and teachers in a kindergar- ten-like setting to help these children speak better English. The children partook activities such as in writing words on the chalkboard, drawing pictures, watching movies, and doing almost anything hands-on. During the week before Halloween the children learned exactly what Halloween was. Many of the children had never been trick-or-treating or carved a pumpkin. " It ' s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown " was shown to enlighten the children, and afterwords they frosted pumpkin-shaped cookies. The children were extremely well behaved for a group of fourteen 5-8 year olds, but as teacher Risa Dean said, " Sometimes they ' re really hard to control, but today they are very behaved. They ' re still a lot of fun even when they are hyper. " Her TA ' s stated similar opinions, as sophomore LSA student Audra Lindenmuth said, " They are just so much fun to work with. " This class may sound like all fun and games, but the children learned a great deal. " Many speak better English than their parents, " graduate student Suzanne Scheele said. Dean also worked with similar adult classes aimed towards enhancing speaking English and she stated, " The adults and parents aren ' t as likely to speak out like the children. The way they ' ve always been taught is more structured than what it is here. Here we simply ask the children to do something and let them use their creativity. One of the parents told me that in their schools the children are asked to do something and then shown how to do it. That is why the adults aren ' t as open as the children. In fact, the other day I asked the children to draw a picture of their family. Most had already been taught how to draw people, so when I drew stick figures on the board they all laughed at me. " It would seem, as the old saying goes, that the teachers may be able to learn something from the children. Northern Exposure 123 By Mary Cummings The percussionist kept the beat of the group and enjoyed perform- ing as much as the students on the other side of the stage. Ann Arbor has been known for the many unique cafes and coffeehouses sprinkled about campus where one could find a quiet place to contemplate the week ' s readings, listen to live music, or relax over a cup of espresso. The North Campus Commons ranked up with State Street ' s Espresso Royale Caffe, Amer ' s, and Gratzi after a face-lift and a packed schedule of events, from visual exhibits to musical performances. The new changes to the lower level of the Commons began gradually about four years ago. Little Caesar ' s moved in during th e fall of 1991 as well as the video arcade, followed the next term by Espresso Royale Cafe. The Barnes Noble bookstore expanded and moved up to the main level. Future plans were already underway for the addition of a copy center. " We wanted to make the Commons visible, " stated Helen Welford, Program Director at the Commons. " We wanted to make people feel good about being here. " Welford and the programming office worked together with several other on-campus organizations, and despite being short-staffed fall term, the Program Office produced a plethora of events for all to enjoy. Many students wandered into Leonardo ' s, the area between Espresso Royale Cafe and Wok Express, one Thursday night perhaps to do a little studying or to take a study break. Whatever their reasons, they were treated to an evening of quality jazz music, free of charge. The performing group, made up of students from the School of Music ' s Jazz Studies Program, filled the cafe with every kind of jazz. Some compositions were original, but they couldn ' t forget the old standards of Ellington and Joplin. Like any good cafe, Leonardo ' s featured a variety of music.. Wednesdays featured duets and quintets playing jazz and classical selections while Fridays found special appearances by different groups. The music ranged from that of Duke Ellington to the renaissance sound of The Continental Brass Quintet; from the foot-stomping, knee-slapping " New " -grass music of The Raisin Pickers to the Latin sambas and mambos of Lunar Octet. Besides the musical entertainment in Leonardo ' s, other cultural and fine art events were in full force. Art exhibits were found in abundance in the North Campus Commons Atrium Gallery many by students as well as by local artists. 1 24 Northern Exposure The trumpet, saxophone, guitar, piano, and percussion voices combined to create beautiful music.

But nestled in the hills northeast of Central Campus was the School of Music. The walls of the school rang with varying sounds: from tuba and euphonium ensembles to soprano voices, from violas to harpsichords. A walk down the corridors of practice rooms at any given time produced a sound unlike any other, like millions of voices speaking at once. The voices of the music school traveled from the confinement of the practice rooms to the grandeur of the concert halls. The School of Music presented over 350 student and faculty performances from nearly thirty performing groups. Concerts and recitals were held at many different locations around campus, including the Mclntosh Theatre in the School of Music, Hill Auditorum, the Mendelssohn Theatre, the Power Center, and Rackham Auditorium. With the many programs and divisions of the school, it was no problem for the school to spread its voices across the entire campus. During the 1992-1993 season the different departments put on performances such as Brigadoon, Die Fledermaus, and Our Town. The dance department also offered Dance to the World Beat, a collection of different dances " from around the world and down the street. " Besides the performing arts endeavors, the School of Music under- took a large fundraising campaign. The Architecturally pleasing and complete with piano-shaped pond, the School of Music offers the best musical training a serious student could want as well as a pastoral setting that can be enjoyed by all.

The School of Music was glad to initiate such an effort at a time when substantial cuts were being made state-wide to the performing arts. The school was also pleased to kick of the campaign with a packed program of concerts and performances in several different locales on campus. Other investments in the future were awarded at the school ' s Scholarship Night. Over 250 students were honored for their talents with numerou s scholarships and endowments. Eight new scholarships had been established to assist dedicated students. Northern Exposure 127 gift of By Mary Cummings 128 Northern Exposure If you went anywhere on North Campus, you saw it. It was the recently-installed sculpture that graced the lawn of the Dow and EECS buildings. The sculpture was " installed " on campus in January 1992 in the midst of a Michigan winter as a gift from the engineering Class of 1933. The sculpture, entitled Summaries of Arithmetic Through Dust, Including Writing Not Yet Printed, was designed by artist Alice Aycock. Aycock received her training at Rutgers ' Douglas College and Hunter College in New York City. The sculpture was commissioned by Dean Peter Banks in an effort to bring more pieces of art to North Campus. Also taking a hand in the sculpture purchase and installation was University Planner and architect Fred Mayer. Mayer said his role was coordinating the installation of the structure which was no small feat. He struggled with the inclement Michigan weather but managed to pull off a January installation. The structure itself was fabricated in New York, while a cement foundation was being poured into the site. The assembly went smoothly despite the cold temperatures. Mayer went on to say that " The site is very interesting because it allows the sculpture to be profitably viewed from many angles. " He planned, over the next few years, to bring more pieces of art to North Campus. " The Aycock sculpture is a dramatic addition to campus. " Opinions of the sculpture among students, however, were mixed. From " it ' s ugly " to " what ' s that supposed to be? " , many comments could be heard in reference to the 32-foot tall white wonder. Engineering junior Brian Scriber referred to the sculpture in a letter to the editor as a " structurally unsound, demented-satellite-dish-like, warped, aesthetically torturous thing from hell, named by some ' artist ' to sound vaguely mathema tical. " Graduate student Ed Tuczak said, " Well, if you took away that satellite thing and a few other parts, it would probably be okay. " Other students walked quietly past the sculpture grumbling at its mere existence. nq NWacek Northern Exposure 1 29 Fighting for equality by Adam Hundley Center for the Education of Women sought gender equity. Although women comprised almost 50 percent of the University ' s undergraduate enrollment, they made up only 18 percent of the faculty and eight percent of the executive adminis- tration. Recognizing this disparity and the impact it had on undergraduate education, university administrators, students, and faculty stressed the importance of and need for the Center for the Education of Women (CEW). Since 1964 the center counseled and assisted over 25,000 women and sought to show the many career options and resources available to them. According to " Women at the Un iversity of Michigan, " a special 1992 report on the status of women students, faculty, and staff, " There has been clear progress in some areas [for women], but there has been stagnation in others. " The study noted that the number of women decreased on each successive level of the academic and administrative hierarchies; although they earned 49 percent of the undergraduate degrees at the University, they earned only 34 percent of the doctoral degrees and made up only 18 percent of the faculty. According to the report, " Women of color are critically underrepresented in the academic pipeline. " Faculty and administrators emphasized that this disparity had a great impact on undergraduate students, especially women. According to the report, " The scarcity of women mentors and role models available to women students and the intense demands placed on women faculty by the growing numbers of women students are major concerns. " Indeed, the ratio of male students to male faculty was eight to one, while the ratio o f female students to female faculty was 22 to one. " The primary goal of the Center for the Education of Women is to work toward equity for women in all sectors of the University, " said Susan Kaufmann, associate director of the center. Toward these ends the center counseled students to help with academic and career planning, provided information and advice on family or school problems, and offered scholarships and emergency loans. It also housed a library with education, job search, and status of women materials and sponsored programs on gender and race 130 Academics The CEW sponsored workshops and discus- sions on gender issues throughout the year.

The center offered further assistance in specialized areas, staffing a Women of Color department with counselors and special programs and a Women in Science department to assist women in engineering, mathematics, and science fields. " We have not found discrimination in the science field, " said Kaufmann, " but we do find women trying to find women role models and struggling with questions of combining a family with a career as a scientist. " The center also played a prominent role in policy-making decisions at the University. According to the center newsletter, " The center ' s director and staff actively engage in developing policies and programs that benefit women and contribute to a safe, vigorous, and equitable intellectual climate for all. " The center drafted a modified duties policy which extended leave of absences for pregnant women, and extended the tenure clock for faculty who had family concerns or obligations. More generally, the center worked with the provosts of the University and urged academic departments to review their policies concerning sexual harassment and other issues. " The focus is primarily on the climate for women, " said Kaufmann. " Sometimes the work is less tangible than policy disputes because we focus on how women feel as students. " The center often engaged in dialogues and workshops with students and faculty to understand teaching techniques and how they might effect women. Kaufmann said the center accomplished many of its goals but still had much work to do. " We ' ve caught most but not all the institutional policies directed against women, " she said. Until all gender and race iniquities were eliminated, workers pledged to continue the struggle to open all the doors of opportunity to women and make students aware of the many options and resources available to them. Academics 131 Making the grade by Adam Hundley Entrance exams tested skills and methods of preparation Most students came to accept and even appreciate the barrage of acronyms heard at the University the MUG, UGLi, and others. But for juniors and seniors going on to professional or graduate schools, the sound of LSAT, GRE, and MCAT sent them into a panic or rage. Trying to juggle classes and test preparation and anticipating the future ramifications of the tests, students found various ways to prepare for the entrance examinations that were required to attend medical school, law school, and most graduate programs. " These things make the SAT look like a junior high quiz, " said LSA junior Maia Yabut. " A lot of people feel like their whole education is coming down to how well they do on this one test. " Although graduate schools stressed that the application comprised many different elements, students felt the exam scores were the most tangible and striking element of the application. As a result, students spent months studying for the tests and hundreds of 132 Academics dollars for study aids and tutors. Many students sought an edge from test-preparation courses offered around campus. " We offer a structured ap- proach to taking the test and the most up-to-date information, " said Tom Miller, director of the Stanley Kaplan test preparation center. Workers at the center taught students test-taking skills, evaluated diagnostic tests, and offered advice on how to prepare mentally and physically for the entrance exams. Classes lasted four hours a week, and partici- pants were assigned at least four hours of extra work taking practice tests and perfecting verbal and math skills. The classes, however, were costly: GRE classes cost $650 while the LSAT and MCAT classes cost $675. But workers stressed the cost was worth it. " The difference between studying on your own and taking the class is like the difference between reading on your own and going to college, " said Keith McMillan, director of Excel Test Preparation. For students who wished to study on their own, literally hundreds of books of practice tests and test-taking strate- gies were available at the local bookstores. Students complained that studying for and worrying about the tests interfered with their academic and social lives. " Preparing for the exams pretty much means blowing off your classes, " admitted Students learn test-taking skills at the Stanley Kaplan center. The course costed hundreds of dollars, but many students said the price was small compared to the investment in graduate and professional schools. Grep Emmanuel Yabut. " Students figure they would rather do bad on a quiz and get a ' B ' in a class than do bad on the ORE and not get in to graduate school. " Most students said they managed by sacrificing a few hours each week from extracurricular activities or time spent with friends, and a few decided that studying for the exams was pointless and did not prepare at all. Students were generally glad that the tests were administered on Saturdays, but for different reasons. Some knew they would be relieved when the tests were over and would be in the perfect mood for a weekend party. Others said they would be so exhausted they would sleep straight through the weekend. But whatever the case, students said the tests proved a source of stress and frustration throughout much of their junior or senior years. With nervous sighs they hoped the work would pay off and their concern would be rewarded with acceptance letters from the best graduate and professional schools in the country. Grei! Emnunuel LSA junior Brian Berlin expresses his frustration during a test | reparation course. Students often said they became anxious and irritable several weeks before the exams were administered. Academics 133 Drawing the line by Adam Hundley Students endured long waits and the closed course list to schedule classes. Most college students expected academic challenges to begin in the classroom: exams, reading assignments, and critical discussions were supposed to test their stamina and develop their abilities. But many students confronted their most difficult challenge before classes even began. Citing everything from long CRISP lines to the diffi- culty of obtaining overrides, students said registering for classes proved a challenge that took several years to master and a great deal of patience and energy to endure. " Registration is very frustrating because you have to wait in line and it ' s very time consuming, " said School of Music junior Eliko Sumi. " It all depends on your CRISP date, " she said. " When you don ' t have many credits and you have to register the last day it can be a nightmare. " As a transfer student, though, Sumi said that registration at Michigan was more efficient than at most universities. At her old school she filled out election forms and waited for them to be processed. " I like the personal aspect of registering here, " she said. " You actually get to sit down and talk with the person that ' s processing your work sheet and work out problems if they arise. " She said an unfriendly or unhelpful registration assistant could nullify this advantage, but she asserted that most of the assistants were very helpful and cordial. " It ' s a pain, but it ' s the best that can be done, " she concluded. LSA senior Erin Himstedt said she has never had serious problems on registration day, but she emphasized that there was a reason behind her success. " Registering can be hard if you don ' t know what you ' re doing, but if you plan ahead you can make it work, " she said. She said, for example, that if she knew a class was going to be popular she would talk to the professor well before registration to establish a relationship and secure an override. " If you ' re persistent, if you talk to your professors, if you make yourself known, then you can do just about anything here, " she said. She also said when she needed to 134 Academics Leaning forward in anticipation, LSA junior Andrea Kangelaris hopes all of her classes " go trough " . Each CRISP volunteer helped 400 students per day during the CRISP period. Students relax while waiting in line to register. " Make sure you bringanewspaper or homework , " LSA senior Erin Himstedt advised. Greg Emmanuel revise her schedule she planned carefully.. " I never went to drop-add right away or in the middle of the day, " she said, noting that some students waited two hours to drop or add a course. " I just waited patiently until the rush died down. " But LSA junior Munirah Curtis and LSA senior Jonna Carlson said preparation could not solve many of the problems. " If you have a late CRISP date there ' s really nothing much you can do, " said Curtis. " You just have to beg for overrides, take courses you don ' t really want. " Carlson said most first-year student developed a negative impression of the university after their first CRISP appointments. " Their first impression of registration was that it ' s long and tedious and that you can never get good classes, which reflects poorly on the whole univer- sity, " she said. Alumni and students often joked that a university education consisted of three years of classes and a year of waiting in line. Registra- tion undoubtedly fueled this sarcasm, as students endured long and frustrating lines waiting to register, talk to professors, and secure the right classes. Although most students recognized that a university this size necessitated some delays, they expressed frustration at the extent of the difficulties and anticipated the time when they could expend their energy and effort in the classroom.

Academics 135 Students teaching students By Adam Hundley TA ' s played a central role in undergraduate academic life. For all the world-renowned professors and professional research- ers at the University, most undergraduate students, especially first- year students and sophomores, exchanged their ideas and opinions with teaching assistants. Almost 1,700 in number, they lead most discussion sections, supervised labs, and graded most papers. But whereas students knew that professors all had doctoral degrees and devoted most of their time to research and teaching, they ques- tioned where TA ' s came from, how they were chosen, why they chose to teach and attend classes, and if they were truly qualified for their positions. " The first thing is that nobody can afford to go to U of M grad school without financial assistance, " said Bill Shea, office manager for the Graduate Employees Organization. Shea and many TA ' s cited the costs of obtaining an advanced degree as a primary motive 136 Academics behind their desire to teach. Although they claimed they learned a lot about teaching and education as they graded papers and lead discussions, they emphasized the tuition wavers that allowed them to continue their studies and earn their advanced degrees. Although most students and adminis- trators thought TA ' s possessed the intelligence to teach their subject matter, they said there were few guarantees that they would be able to impart and share their knowledge effectively. " They ' re qualified in terms of knowledge and intelligence, " said School of Music sophomore Jennifer Hargett, " but as teachers it ' s a different story. " Hargett emphasized that TA ' s did not have to take education courses and said they should have had to take at least one class to learn how to deal with students. " They know their subjects, but sensitivity to teaching I have not found, " she said. TA ' s and administrators stressed, though, that teaching assis- tants were subject to some evaluation. Before teaching, for example, their teaching skills were evaluated and enhanced in two days of simulated teaching environments, and student evaluations were used to determine the effectiveness of a teaching assistant and I te sj A section.

Thomas Senior, associate chair for academic affairs in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, admitted the system was not perfect but said the ability to teach well usually followed if the TA ' s were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Students generally agreed with Senior. " Most of the TA ' s I ' ve had have been pretty good, " said School of Music sophomore Deena Hausner. " I guess with all the money we ' re paying we ' re entitled to professors, but we knew coming here that this was the way it would be. " Hargett agreed, saying, " I think if they hired more professors they would have to raise tuition and it would never work. Besides, it ' s a good opportunity for the TA ' siand when students get into upper-level classes they can work more with real professors. " Heffner said that the TA ' s were actually her best teachers. " They ' re more on our level; they can relate to us, " she said. " They take classes just like we do, and they understand what we ' re going through. " Most students said the teaching assistants offered them a means to communicate thoughts and share ideas at a university where most professors were too involved with research or graduate studies. Greg Emmannuel Some students said the money they paid to come here warranted communication with the most knowledgeable and experienced professionals in academia, but whatever their opinion, students said teaching assistants played a significant role in their academic experiences and intellectual growth. Academics 137 From art to zoology by Adam Hundley Art and nature came to life at the University museums. Textbooks and lectures taught students the names and dates they needed to succeed on exams, but they could not convey the physical beauty of great art, natural resources, and historical artifacts. Fortunately, the University possessed and displayed everything from modern art to skeletons of prehistoric dinosaurs. Although few students took advantage of the many museums around campus, those who did discovered the richness of the artifacts held by the University and the enjoyment of gaining a first-hand knowledge of them. Many students ' knowledge of the University Museum of Art centered on the unusual sculpture in front of it. " It looks like something the construction workers forgot to clean up after building the museum, " said one student who wished to remain anonymous. But for those who ventured inside, the museum boasted highly-acclaimed art by such artists as Monet and Delacroix, an exhibit of 10 Picasso works, and everything from 138 Academics Greek vases to a suit of medieval armor. LSA junior Kai Sung agreed the museum was a great resource for stu- dents. " It was marvellous, " he said. " It displayed a great variety of artistic media and types and emphasized art in many different cultures. " The museum contained a large selection of non- European art, including tapestries from China, Japanese paintings, and African art. Sung also said the museum offered something for everyone. While Art History students could often be seen meditating in front of a painting or standing with their nose against a canvas investigating form and technique, other less serious observers enjoyed the frequent chamber music performances and the displays of modern art and photography. The Kelsey Museum of Archeology boasted even older works, including artifacts from ancient and medieval towns and villages such as farming implements, pots and dishes, and even some toys. " The artifacts are fascinating, " said Sung. " They really give you a much more tangible feel for daily life in the middle ages than a textbook can give you. " The medieval and classical ages seemed like just yesterday, however, compared to the time periods under consideration at the natural resources museums. Exhibits included fossils hundreds of I - - - LSA junior Vinny Gauri investigates the dinosaur skeletons at the Natural Science musuem. The museum was usually full oj children in the morning and on weekends , but on weekday afternoons students were able to study the exhibits in private. Grey Emmanuel thousand of years old and artistic recreations of life as far back as several million years ago. Students especially enjoyed the skeletons of the sabertooth tiger and allosaurus, the giant three-foot clam, and other unusual exhibits. " These objects really speak of the beauty and power of nature, " said Pharmacy junior Emmett Tse. " Humans, for all their artistic and mechanical genius, could never produce anything like this. " Some students complained, however, that the museums were more interested in research than educating students. " There seemed to be more offices than displays in the museum, " said Tse. Others said the natural resources museums were not comprehensive enough for college students. " They ' re perfect for high school, " Sung said, " but for college students it ' s not very sophisticated or complex. " Other students agreed, noting that the museum was always full of young children looking at the dinosaur bones and other displays. Administrators stressed, however, that the museums offered much more than just a few interesting dinosaur skeletons. The natural science museum, for example, also housed a museum of Anthropology and a planetarium and stored over a million artifacts for use by University students and researchers. Right next to the museum the University Arboretum possessed and displayed thousands of varieties of native and exotic trees, plants, and flowers. For some students, the museum was just another building to pass on the way to lectures or discussions. As Sung admits, " The only reason I went in was because I was waiting for a bus. " But for those who ventured inside, lectures and discussions came to life with the rare and valuable artifacts and works of art displayed all around them. Faculty and administrators boasted that the University offered students invaluable resources in their studies, and the University museums undoubtedly played a central role in this intellectual offering. Academics 139 Friendly advice by Adam Hundley Student counselors understood students 1 concerns. Even the most independent and resourceful students needed advice about the variety of courses and career options open to them. But many students said the professional counselors and faculty advisors at the University did not understand the pressures and decisions weighing on students ' minds. When they wanted honest advice about professors, courses, and future plans, many students looked instead to their peers at the Students ' Counseling Office. The center was staffed by four permanent counselors and four part-time workers. In addition to counseling, the volunteers gave out old exams contributed by students, maintained extensive catalogues of graduate and professional schools, and distributed student evaluations of courses and professors. " We can answer just about any question because we ' ve had a lot of experience at the University, " said counselor and LSA junior Jamie Spence, " and if we don ' t know the answer we know where to go to find it. " Counselors emphasized that they understood the needs and concerns of students. " We can give personal opinions because we ' ve taken the courses and we ' ve been through the same kinds of things, " said Spence. He recalled one student who wanted to transfer because she felt lonely and out of place. The counselors understood her predicament and sug- gested that she go to smaller parties and join an organization to develop a network of friends. The next semester the girl returned and said she was much happier and had decided not to transfer. Counselors also said students felt more at ease talking to their peers than talking with adults or professors. " They feel more comfortable and aren ' t afraid to ask candid questions, " said counselor and LSA senior Tony Saxe. " They ' re not embarrassed to come in and say they need one more easy class or they want to arrange their schedule so they have no classes on Thursday or Friday. " Saxe said students also felt more comfortable talking to their peers about problems with a professor or questions about racism or sexism. Workers at the center admitted they did not possess the psychological or educational training to deal with serious problems. " It ' s very important that we recognize our limitations and know to 140 Academics Greg Emmanuel refer serious problems to professionals who are better able to deal with them, " said Saxe. But Spence emphasized that practical knowledge and experience often made up for lack of formal training. " Professional counselors might have more training, but we share the students ' perspectives and know how to relate to them, " he said. Most counselors said they had no special training but learned quickly. " I listened to the questions the students asked other counselors, and after a few weeks I picked up a lot that I never could have learned in a training course or handbook, " said Spence. The office tried to maintain a balance of sophomores, juniors, and seniors so the older counselors could answer the tougher questions and the younger counselors could gain experience and take over when the seniors graduated. Students often said it took several years to learn all the intrica- cies and tricks of attending such a large and diverse university. Fortunately, whether they needed help finding a building or advice about a career choice, many students found advisors at the Stu- dents ' Counseling Office who understood their concerns and helped them solve their problems. Students often said they knew very little about professors and test formats when they registered for classes. LSA senior Susan Frauenhohz examines old exams and course evaluations to gain an edge.

Greg Emmanuel Academics 141 Up to the challenge by Adam Hundley Handicapped students were resolved to succeed. Grey Emmanuel Students often complained about taking notes, walking to classes on the other side of campus, and completing long reading assignments for their classes. But for learning and physically disabled students the challenge was even greater, as they needed special resources and facilities to complete their assignments and travel around campus. Fortunately, many handicapped students found help at the Office for Students with Disabilities, which possessed special resources and assisted handicapped students achieve success and recognition throughout the University. Students and administrators stressed that it was vital that all University resources and facilities be made accessible to handi- capped students. " Accessibility is a right and ... we need to address the barriers to access, " said Shannon Rhodes, a staff member at the School of Social Work. Services for Students with Disabilities sought to increase accessibility by providing such resources as special reading rooms at the Graduate Library and a campus bus service for handicapped students. The center also helped disabled students succeed in classes, providing such resources as interpreters for hearing impaired students, volunteer readers and note-takers for the visually impaired, and special tutors for learning disabled students. " We really provide a great range of services depending on the needs of the students, " said Sam Goodin, director of the center. Goodin estimated that 150 students made use of the center, although he said the number of handicapped students on campus was much higher. " Some of the handicapped students can succeed on their own, so more power to them, " Goodin said. " But for those who can ' t, we ' re here to help. " To fill the demand Services for Students with Disabilities was staffed by four professional disability specialists, about 15 student assi stants, and a number of secretaries and workers in the transportation department. Goodin said the University was responsive to the needs of handicapped students. " We ' ve seen a great deal of support from the new student affairs department, " he said. " There has been a lot of interest throughout campus. " Indeed, the University made efforts to make campus facilities more accessible; a wheelchair 142 Academics Visually impaired LSA junior Marketoe Day uses the facilities provided by the University. The briefcase contains spe- cial hookups that translate computer im- ages into synthesized speech. I I Greg Emmanuel Grey Emmanuel entrance was added to the LSA building, new entrances and wheel- chair-accessible restrooms were added to Hill Auditorium, and automatic doors were installed at several University buildings. But students and administrators stressed that much work still needed to be done. Goodin rated his office in the middle rank among Big 10 schools, and said long term goals included computers with which students could take tests and increased reading services. " Accessibility to buildings and other resources often go hand in hand with more money from the administration, " Goodin said. Students and workers stressed that mere physical resources and funds were not enough to make disabled students feel welcome and successful at the University. " The biggest barrier is attitudinal, " said alumna Beth Berclay. " People have prejudices and misperceptions against people with disabilities. " Services for Students with Disabilities could not change attitudes, but it provided handicapped students the means to succeed in classes and around campus and prove to others that they were no different from other students at the University. More than a dozen work-study students staffed the center throughout the year. First-year student Kia Berry explains the goals of the program while working at the reception desk. Academics 143 One credit short by Adam Hundley Geology mini- courses saved many students but left others disappointed For humanities and social science majors, the scenario might sound familiar: senior year approached, and after studying two semesters of astronomy or biology for non-science majors students found they needed one more credit to fulfill the nine-credit natural science distribution. But instead of tackling organic chemistry or physics, many students elected the popular one-credit geology mini-courses offered each semester. Although the courses received criticism and the label " rocks for jocks " from some, many students said they enjoyed the classes and learned a lot about the natural world. In contrast to the complex formulas and equations taught in chemistry and physics courses, students said the mini-courses emphasized the power and beauty of the natural world. " When you reduce science to a lot of numbers and data it loses interest, " said LSA junior Adam Francisco. " The mini-courses really bring science to life. " Geology professor John Ruff agreed that the 144 Academics courses helped to stimulate students ' appreciation of and interest in science. " The goals of this course are to present the most exciting recent developments in the earth sciences, " he said. The titles of the courses attested to their variety and interest. The course " Volcanoes and Earthquakes, " for example, emphasized the destructive power of nature and catastrophic events in historic times; as Professor Jim Satake claimed, " This course is a study of the earth in action. " Likewise, students could study the history of the oceans, the ecology of coral reefs, planets and moons, and many other subjects. But some students said the mini-courses were intended only to fulfill the distribution requirement and offered students little genuine knowledge or intellectual intensity. " It was designed for fifth graders, " said LSA sophomore Manny Alsina of the Planets and Moons course. " It was a blow-off class to the extreme; it wasn ' t challenging at all, " he said. Alsina said he had a considerable amount of homework to do but that the subject matter was easy and uncomplicated. " There was nothing you had to really sit back and consider, " he said. Alsina admitted, though, that he entered the course with a strong science background. " I knew about astronomy going into 09 cn stu on Students study the history of the oceans in a geology mini-course. " The topics of the courses are definitely interesting and important , " said LS A sophomore Mann Afsina. t the class; I probably would have failed coral reefs if I didn ' t study, " he said. " I guess the class would be beneficial if students didn ' t have any prior knowledge of the subject. " Most students agreed, saying the courses were helpful for non-scientists but that they offered little challenge or insight for students with strong science backgrounds. Most students, although they admitted the courses were not as hard as some others offered by the University, said they learned a lot and that the difficulty level and subject matter were appropri- ate. " As a social science or humanities major it would be a complete waste of time to memorize a lot of numbers and equations that you would immediately forget, " said Francisco. " In the mini- courses the material is less rigorous but it is fun and it gives students a more lasting impression of a few important aspects of the environment. " Some students took the courses just to satisfy distribution requirements and earn their degrees, but in the process many learned that even writers, poets, and artists can learn a great deal about the natural world when it is presented in an interesting and informative way. Grey Emmanuel Professor James Walker lectures on envi- ronmental issues to geology students. Walker stressed the unprecedented and potentially harmful interaction of humans with nature. Academics 145 Getting involved by Adam Hundley Many students earned credit volunteering in the community. When students said they earned academic credit without attending classes, they most often meant they had participated in independent study programs or performed well on advanced placement tests. Some students, however, found ways to earn credit in more creative ways. Following the precept that valuable learning often took place outside the classroom, students fulfilled degree requirements volunteering in the community and learning everything from criminal justice to child psychology. Many student volunteers worked four to eight hours a week at the Pound House, an independent day-care center affiliated with the University and located on campus. Students said their goal was to teach the children lifetime skills such as problem solving and effective communication skills. Although the students volunteered their time, they were often recruited through psychology classes and received credit for their work. " It makes sense that the volunteers get credit since they learn so much about teaching and 146 Academics education and child psychology, " said LSA junior and Pound House volunteer Michelle Mauffray. The day-care center was not the only place where students earned academic credit outside the classroom. Many other students worked in laboratories, assisted with research conducted by a professor, or worked on a project related to their field of interest. " There ' s a lot of opportunities to gain some ' real life ' training while earning credit if you look hard enough, " said LSA senior Beth Buggenhagen-Diop. Many students worked as volunteers for Project Community, a department of the Michigan Union. The program included service-learning projects in six areas: education, health care, criminal justice, chemical dependency, consumer advocacy, and organizational leadership. According to program organizers, " Potential outcomes for students include experiential and academic learning, service to the community, maturation, and personal exploration and enhancement. " The project, which worked with nearly 35 different institutions including schools, prisons, and hospitals, offered sociology and often education credit to all participants. Project Outreach also enabled students to do field work in local settings. According to organizers, " The purpose of Project Out- (I t I 1 I ' ft ' LSA senior Renee Vanderburg rests and prepares for play time as the children at the PoundHouselistentoastory. Vanderburg said the work was demanding but very rewarding. Greg Emmanuel reach is to have students learn about themselves and about psychology by becoming involved in community settings. " Out- reach volunteers provided direct service to children, adolescents, and adults who were handicapped, retarded, emotionally troubled, physically ill, or legally confined to institutions. In the Big Siblings program, for example, students were involved in a one-on-one friendship with a young child having difficulty adjusting to school, home, or the community. According to organizers, " Our main objective is to inspire the children, teach them skills needed to achieve and succeed in school, improve their confidence and self- esteem, and promote their academic and social development. " Other participants worked with social advocacy organizations concerned with the rights of consumers, battered women, foreign students, and others. Students stressed that the work was demanding but that they learned a lot about their subjects and themselves. " You can ' t help another person or teach something or solve a problem without learning a little bit about yourself too, " said Buggenhagen-Diop. Indeed, at a university with hundreds of world-renowned scholars and professors, students who volunteered in the community often found that young children, disabled men and women, and the elderly were the best teachers of all. Academics 147 Paying the price by Adam Hundley Administrators raised tuition nearly ten percent again Students often wondered if the value of a degree from the University was worth the cost of a four year education. This doubt grew as the University again raised tuition well in excess of inflation and cost of living increases. Citing increased operating costs and a freeze in state funding, the University implemented a program of " shared sacrifice " which included departmental budget cuts, salary freezes, and tuition increases. At summer meetings the regents of the University expressed a desire to keep the tuition increase under ten percent, and they settled on a 9.9 percent increase for Michigan residents and 7.5 percent increase for out-of-state students. Administrators said the University received the same amount of funding from the state as it did in 1992, but that increased salaries and other costs necessitated an increase in tuition. The University also asked all academic departments to cut operating budgets by two percent over the course of the year. Although administra- tors stressed that this was part of the shared sacrifice program, students emphasized that the departmental cuts often deprived them of resources like study centers, computing facilities, and time to talk with professors and teaching assistants. The increase typified the problems faced by colleges in Michigan and throughout the country. With budget deficits forcing states to cut spending and maintenance costs rising, many colleges stressed the need to raise tuition to continue operations. Michigan State University and even private Michigan schools faced similar increases, while California public colleges and other institutions raised tuition as much as 20 to 30 percent. Administrators stressed that more than a third of the tuition increase, or about $12 million, went to financial aid. According to Gilbert Whitaker, University provost and vice president for academic affairs, " If we are to take seriously our commitment to keep the University open and accessible ... we must be willing to bear this cost. " But some administrators disagreed with this philosophy. " The University should not increase the tuition package a student pays to cover the cost of financing others, " said 148 Academics Junior Mary Bagg and sophomore Kelly Galagher wait in line to verify their tuition statements . Workers at the LSA building said they dealt with hundreds of angry and confused students every day. I 1 Greg Emmanuel Greg Emmanuel Regent Neal Nielsen. " We should not be raising tuition to the extent that families have to pay the financial aid of others. " Regents Nellie Varner and Paul Brown, conversely, said the plan afforded opportunities for less privileged families. " Access has to be a priority, " said Varner. But students were not so understanding, emphasizing the burden placed on families and the debts incurred by students. " The University raises tuition based on facts and figures, " said LSA sophomore Katy Vincent, " but it seems to have little thought for the families that are losing all their savings and the students who are mortgaging their futures. " Vincent and others also questioned the necessity of the increases, as professors and administrators continued to collect enormous salaries and conduct expensive research projects and programs. But administrators stressed that faculty, staff, and administration received only a small cost of living adjustment stipend instead of a salary increase. The University also initiated a Campaign for Michigan billion dollar fund-raising effort to help finance college operations. University officials noted that the tuition increase was less than increases at other universities and that it was needed to maintain the high level of scholarship achieved by professors and students. But for students, the increase represented inevitable increases in debts and burdens on families. While administrators determined costs based on the needs of the moment, students wondered what the effects of such increases would be far into their futures. Out-o -state students paid in excess of $20,000 a year to attend the University, while Michigan residents paid as much as $10,000 a year. Sophomore Amber Donell inquires about her tuition bill. Academics 149 Finding their niche . by Adam Hundley Comprehensive Studies stressed personalized instruction. At times, the size of the University was a great advantage; few experiences matched the excitement of attending football games with over 100,000 other fans and the resources offered by such a large university were undoubtedly excellent. But when it came to academics, taking courses with hundreds of other students and fighting to talk to a professor detracted from the college experi- ence. Some students, however, avoided this frustration by joining the Comprehensive Studies Program, which required slightly more work but emphasized above all intimate relationships between students, faculty, and their work. Although the program did not have its own curriculum, it offered students special sections in popular courses such as calculus and English composition. The sections generally met one more day a week than regular sections and often included workshops outside the classroom where students and faculty could exchange and share ideas. The program also offered tutorial assistance to students and 1 50 Academics assigned a counselor to students to assist in academic and personal problems. Participants stressed that the program provided a more intimate working environment for students. William Collins, director of the program, said the classes generally entailed more work but that extra work was not the focus. " An important part of learning is to have intimate contact with the subject matter, " he said. " Here learning is certainly more personalized. We strive for closer relations between faculty and students. " LSA first-year student Stacey Foster agreed, saying the program enabled her to find a niche while other students labored in large classes and struggled to get to know professors and other students. " I heard before I came here that this was a big university and I didn ' t want to take big lecture courses, " she said. " In the Comprehensive Studies Program it ' s easier to concentrate and learn because there are less people and the profes- sors help a lot more. " Collins emphasized that the close relationships extended beyond the classroom and created bonds between students. " You can ' t underestimate the social network that is created, " Collins said. " The students are able to work with other students who share the same interests and challenges. " Collins also cited the bond created between the students and their advisors, who were similar to LSA Greg Emmanuel Comprehensive Studies Program advisor Maria Dorantes discusses class schedules with first-year student Marcy Woodard. Almost two thousand students found guid- ance and instruction in the program. advisors but who worked with the students throughout their undergraduate education and helped them in many aspects of their lives. " The peer advisor is very helpful, " said Foster. " She helps me with academic issues and also with personal or financial issues and other problems. " The advantages of the program convinced many students. Collins said approximately 1820 students were enrolled in the program, with hundreds of new students admitted each year. The demand was met with eight permanent academic advisors, 12 full- time faculty members in English, math, and several natural sciences, and many teaching assistants and faculty members who worked closely with the program. The program also included conference rooms and several counseling offices for students and workers. Students said the program motivated them to work harder and take advantage of the resources and faculty guidance available to them. " It ' s the same kind of work, " said Foster, " but you go to class every day instead of two or three times a week and you ' re more likely to get involved in the work and get it done. " Other partici- pants said the personalized instruction motivated them to try harder and made learning more interesting and enjoyable. Collins agreed, saying the program meant different things to different students and that above all it provided new and rewarding opportu- nities for the participants. At a university where many students felt like learning was impersonal, the Comprehensive Studies Program emphasized interaction among the members of the academic community and brought education to life with closer relationships and more personalized instruction.

The ultimate goal of the Daily staff was to work together putting out the best in sports coverage, news and information, photographs, arts, and working with the best business staff of any student publication on campus. The business staff of the Daily contributed the funds which made the publication of the Daily possible. Advertising, display, and classified departments provided sales experi- ence for more than 50 students. The Daily had a credit and finance de- partment which gave students expe- rience with the real business world. LSA senior and business manager Amy Milner said, " i manage a budget of $800,000 independently of the university, which ensures our au- tonomy. It gives me practical busi- ness experience, which has provided more of an education than my classes. " The internal goals of the edit staff were to teach the staffers to become well rounded journalists and for them to learn to use computer programs such as Pagemaker and Microsoft Work. They learned to work with their peers well and their leadership skills improved. Matt Rennie, Edi- tor-in-chief of the Daily for the Fall semester, said, " The most rewarding part of being a members of the Daily staff, is seeing other people become better at what they do as a staff mem- ber. It ' s great to see how well people work together. A very big part of being on the Daily staff is to see the finished product the next day. Not only seeing the finished product, but see the reaction given by the student body. It ' s just the best! " Josh Dubow, LSA junior and 156 Organizations rani Greg Emmanuel sports editor of the Daily, said, " The experience as working as a staffer is not replaceable. When I came to U of M, 1 knew I wanted to work for the newspaper. It has been the one con- stant part of my life here. The expe- rience is the part of college that means the most to me. " Injanuary, the staff elected Dubow as their Editor-in-chief. He wanted to keep the status of the Daily as a well re spected newspaper and form of media for the students at Michi- gan. He did hope to live up to the expectations of his staff and to help build a more comfortable working community. The leadership that the staff de- veloped from being a part of the Daily was not a trait that surpassed anyone.

John Niyo, managing sports editor, said, " The fact that the Daily is completely student run and are all volunteers, just proves that the leadership that is present in ev- eryone is a necessary part of the out- put of the paper. Getting people to learn to work well with others is a very important aspect of our organi- zation. Without leadership responsi- bilities and cooperation, our organi- zation would cease to exist. " Cathleen Eckholm Greg Emmanuel Organizations 157 Because ofgrowingstudentresponse, The Review went from a bi-monthly to a weekly publication in 1992-1993. Here, Andrew Bockelrrum lays out the latest publication. Kathleen Kang A Different Point of View Two independent student publications provide alternative information sources. Consider, a non-profit issue forum published by students, provoked dis- cussion and thought with its weekly, two-sided presentation of important campus, local, national, and interna- tional issues. Its ' both sides of the issue ' , non-partisan format enabled li Consider to tackle such controversial and sensitive topics as women in the clergy, lesbian gay male adoption, and more. Lending even more to the non-biased spirit of the magazine, the positions put forth in each issue were solicited from the readership and general public and did not nec- essarily represent the opinions of the editors, advisors, or sponsors who encouraged responses and contribu- tions from readers. Consider remained the second- largest student-published magazine newspaper, despite a slight decline in readership in 1992-93. The slight decline was not due to a compromise in quality, as Consider retained its position on campus as a highly re- spected issue forum. Associate Edi- tor and Residential College senior Matthew Stein assured, " The Uni- versity community comes and goes in waves. We don ' t know why people aren ' t reading it as much, but it ' s still generally well-respected because it is non-partisan. " Associate Editor and Architecture and Urban Planning junior Sarah Radding concurred, " I think our magazine is very well-re- spected. I think our circulation is smaller, but it ' s fairly regular. People who read it read it often because it ' s solid. " Another student-run journal, The Michigan Review, provided an alter- native source of information toother student-newspapers such as The Michigan Daily. The journal was founded in 1981 by a group of stu- dents who were displeased with what they saw as the one-sidedness of the already-existingstudent publications. Since thattime,T ie Review has grown 158 Organizations For a feit of inexpensive publicity , Chuck Yoo and the rest of the Consider staff paint the Rock . Consider ' s both ' Sides-of ' the ' Story format won a dedicated readership. (Photo courtesy of Consider) in popularity and circulation. In fact, because of growing student re- sponse to the paper, it went from a bi- monthly to a weekly in the fall of 1992. Editor- in-Chief and Residen- tial College senior Adam DeVore stated, " I think that the people who read this paper are looking for a dif- ferent point-of-view than what other student publications have to offer. " In addition to the paper itself, The Review also ran one of the largest computer conferences on campus, encouraging student response, and brought in guest speakers to the University. Although these events were conducted in the university community, Devore stated, " We are a student-run organization that re- ceives complete independent fund- ing that does not come from the University.

Mui Holland works the sound boards. Over the Blue TV Underground and WCBN provide two alternative forms of communication TV Underground and WCBN were two forms of communication on campus. As most student organi- zations, both of these were completely student run. Members of these orga- nizationsdefinitely learned what time consuming meant. Television Underground was a relatively new organization at the University of Michigan. It just com- pleted its third semester as a student organization. This would account for the station not being very well known but they tried to get their name recognized by the student body. TV Underground consisted of about fifteen students that were interested in the production of film. There was a new film presented each semester. The films that were produced were similar to something like a television show. The films were produced at a location somewhere around campus that was unknown until the time of shooting. The first semester proved to be humorous with the production of a detective agency show. An action and adventure was the silly show for the second semester. David Levine, production manager, who was a member of TV Underground through it ' s entire existence, said, " TV Underground should have stayed underground. I think it should have never happened, but it ' s been lots of fun, despite the consumption of time. " WCBN was part of a organization called, Campus Broadcasting Net- work, along with WJJX. WJJX was restricted to broadcasting to only the residence halls on 640 AM. Ted Oberg, general manager, tried to de- fine what WCBN actually was, " I think to define what WCBN is, is a very difficult question. Weoffersuch a varied programming and the best way to figure it out would be to listen. I definitely encourage people to come down. " The Student Activities Build- ing was the production place of the radio station. WCBN could be heard 24 hours a day throughout most of Washtenaw County on 88.3 FM. The staff of WCBN consisted of about 1 50 staff members. One of the most 160 Organizations Sarah Whiting interesting things about the station was that it was a free-form station with no format. Each disc jockey was able to play any type of music they wished. The selected play ranged from Alternative to Medieval and Turkish music. Besides being a mu- sic station, WCBN was a form of media. Everyday WCBN aired the News Report, Pacifica News Report, and Public Affairs Programming. The past year was the 21st year of opera- tion for WCBN, and in July they held there 20th anniversary party. Approximately 75 past members of WCBN participated in the event.

These contracts ranged from the pub- lication of the book, to setting prices, and purchasing new equipment for this year, and years to come.

The responsibility of story reporting, edit- ing sections, and gathering informa- tion did not intimidate them. LSA first- year student Heidi Messner ex- pressed deep satisfaction for the Michigan Life section, stating, " This section has a lot of meat to it, more meat than in the past few years.

Most deadlines resulted in late nights, little sleep, and skipped classes. When all was said and done though, most members believed that their efforts were well rewarded. LSA freshman John Whelan said, " The first-year students on the Ensian staff have learned well from the older Ensian members. We have come together to form an experienced, hard work- ing staff dedicated to producing the best yearbook of all time. " Everyone was driven to do their best, and encouraged others to do likewise. LSA junior Adam Hundley stated, " Sometimes I ' m discouraged with the people at this university because they don ' t seem to be pas- sionate or devoted to anything. It ' s good to know the people here yell not because they ' re angry, but be- cause they want to do the best job they can. " Despite the stress of deadlines and correcting proofs, everyone admit- Phil " I ' m a visual person " Kim-Art Directo Layout Editor ted that working on the staff was a great real-life work experience, but the best part of all was having fun. LSA senior John Sellers said, " I think that we all get along very well consid- ering how different we are. I had a lot of fun here considering the amount of stress it caused. I found the fun went up proportionately to the amount of stress which I found espe- cially perplex ing. Go figure " Hundley said, " I think it ' s been a valuable experience because I ' ve taken a lot of writing and English classes.

For a few hours on a pre-set evening planned nearly a year in advance, Navy and Marine Corps officers and officers-to-be con- versed casually while maintaining the high degree of decorum signature of the servicemen women. The " Din- ing-in " tradition has been celebrated annually for nearly two hundred years, encouraging social camaraderie and mingling of the ranks. Engineering juniorNicVolpicelli summarized the evening ' s events with a smile, " We eat, demean each other through skits, and close with a toast. It ' s something to look forward to. " In addition to the coat check and cocktail reception, the festivities in- cluded a multi-course beef and or chicken dinner, servicemen skits, formal and informal toasts, and the reporting of conduct violations (a.k.a. the grog bowl ceremony). Individual time away from classes and training was necessary for the preparation of the much-anticipated skits. " It ' s our chance to poke fun at the officers and all their little habits we ' ve noticed during training drills, " explained first-year student Tim Earl . " All I know is that I have to dress as a girl, " remarked Dave Kozminski, an LSA first-year student interested in the Navy ' s aviation opportunities. Round tables promoted a spirit of mutual respect and equality leaving only lapel pins and shoulder stripes as seniority descriptors.

Closing the Gap alternated weeks between visiting fixed income eld- erly retirement communities. AIDS Outreach became a two- fold service organization of educa- tional events and fund raising. The Inmates Outreach program tutored Washtenaw County prison- ers . Engineering senior KigenKandie said, " Prison is a place where money is spent, and there ' s no return for it at all. People are ending up worse. All have been in and out, but they ' re very keen to learn. It ' s great tutoring experience! " Helping Hands for the Homeless absorbed the " Students for Shelter " group to form a hybrid. They col- lected recyclable cans from Bursley each week and took the proceeds to the Shelter Association. Stacey Balduck, LS A senior, said, " We stay up late with the sick, and a lot of people were sick. I realized for the first time that once a homeless per- son gets sick they have a totally hard time. They can ' t get better. " The 30 volunteers of Students for a Humane Society split themselves equally between kennel and groom- ing work. Some volunteers planned on careers as veterinarians, but most became involved due to some es- trangement from their own pets.

Founded in 1 988 by alumnus Rob Guttman, the 40 active volunteers of United Students Against Cancer (USAC) raised money in 1992-93 for the American Cancer Society. Guttman intended the United Stu- dents Against Cancer to be a service organization, but most major cancer centers require certification of their volunteers.

USAC president and LSA senior Adam Zolotor, said, " What is important for people our age to know is that we do about 80 percent of the damage we ' re ever going to do to our bodies by the age of 21. " In November the USAC hosted a booth during the Great American Smoke Out, urging students to help each other " kick the butts " (to quit smoking). For three days in Febru- ary, they hosted " Don ' t Get Burned At Break " when they asked students in the Fishbowl to take a brief cancer related quiz in exchange for a bottle of sunblock lotion.

T ik ' g-pp -- ' f I University of Ml- Creatin; Awareness SADD and Students For Life concentrated on raising consciousness Each armed with a strong cause and the determination to be heard, Students For Life ' s and Students Against Drunk Driving ' s (SADD) main agenda heightened student awareness about their groups ' mis- sions. Amidst the ongoing abortion con- troversy, Students For Life members were extremely visible on campus, providing students with the facts: " It ' s a moral crisis, " said Sue Derengoski, School of Education se- nior, " We want to reveal the truth behind the myths. " Aside from pro- viding information and being avail- able to answer students ' questions and concerns, members had other strategies tocrusade their cause. " We wanted to show the horror of the consequences of abortion, " said Bridget Hamilton, an LSA senior and Students For Life president, " Words alone cannot explain this. " Members set up a showcase in the Fishbowl highlighting the stages of fetal development. " After seeing these pictures, some students told me they had changed their views on abortion, " said Hamilton. The biggest myth SADD mem- bers sought to dissolve was " A drink- ing and driving accident won ' t ever happen to me, " a common miscon- ception among college students. " Many students have this attitude, figuring that since they personally don ' t own a car they would never even be put in the situation, " said Christine Gale, president and founder of SADD. The crusade against drinking and driving included SADD ' s annual Red Ribbon Campaign during which students tied red ribbons to their car antennas, their bags, and coats. With the help of University Hea lth Services, during Alcohol Awareness Week, SADD members parked a crashed car in the Diag, exposing the harsh real ity of alcohol- related accidents. The shocking vi- 1 68 Organizations i jgan A fetus nt is an ? innocent human STUDENTS AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING Front: Christine Gale, Marni Holtzman, Jodi Weiss, Jodi Jacobson Back: Thomas Mercer, Cameual Wright, Renee Ellis, Tracy McComb, Brian Elliot sual impact of the car prompted the interest of several students who stopped to talk to SADD members. Also in collaboration with Health Services, members spoke to sorori- ties and fraternities. They gave ad- vice about helping each other through crisis situations and informed them of the legal ramifications of drunk driving. " We really had a positive response with the Greek meetings, " said Gale. Though many joined their cause, SADD still considered overall stu- dent involvement rather low.

Practicin Professionalism Black Pre-Med Association and Black Business Student Organization get a head start. The Black Pre-Med Association started in 1987 to address special concerns of African-Americans studying to become doctors. They met bi-weekly to hear speakers and plan events. In addition to academic tutoring, study groups, and a note-taking ser- vice, the group sponsored an " Achievement Test Raffle " . " We wanted to create another incentive for academics. If we ex- pect members to become physicians, we have to have grades that are on par, " said pre-med senior, Melvin Ashford. The group planned to host a pre- med conference weekend in 1994 with a stature speaker like U of M alum Dr. Benjamin Carson, chief of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins. Sophomore Katrine Patillo orga- nized the Black Pre-Med Associa- tion visits to Michigan State, Wayne state and the hospitals of the Detroit area. For their annual trip they vis- ited the University of Illinois, North- western, the Chicago medical school, and the University of Chicago. In the Youth Surgery program in Detroit they watched Dr. Charles Vincent OB GYN operate and de- scribe, " a lot of different things, some of it very gross, but interesting. You ' d be surprised at all that can go wrong in a body! " said Ashford. The Black Pre-Med Association ' s 3-Mentor project matched pre-med students with a resident, a medical student, orpracticingphysician men- tors. Justin Wright Of the 150 members of the Black Business Organization, not all were business majors. It was an under- graduate organization as well as for graduates. One of the biggest events they sponsored was the Alumni con- ference, held in March. The main purpose was to have several panels 170 Organizations Greg Emmanuel for different topic discussions. Dis- cussions included entrepreneurship, professional development and man- aging a career and a family. The end of the year brought the annual lun- cheon where the old executive board initiated the new leadership. The organization was involved in many community service activities. They were involved in a Big Brother Big Sister program for Ann Arbor and they sponsored an event called High School Outreach. In this pro- gram, they brought in students from local high schools in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor to show them around the Business School. Showing the high school students part of their pro- gram, they also tried to increase their interest. They were also heavily in- volved in tutoring high school stu- dents.

Since then, we have grown to more than 300 members and provide programming of campus-wide interest. " -Statement of purpose The Pre-med club gave helpful advice to first-year students as well as seniors about applying to medical school, studying for pre-med courses, and requirements for a premedical student. One of the biggest problems that a pre-medical student had was find- ing out the information that they needed to stay on top of applying to a good medical school. LSA senior and vice president Edward Kim said, " It ' s something the University needs to inform students so that they know pre-med procedures. Not all pre- meds are knowledgeable about what they have to do to apply to med school. " LSA senior and member Anita Joshua said, " I think it ' s a great ben- efit to pre-med students because we leam about different medically re- lated issues, not just how to be a doctor, but how to care for the whole person. I think it ' s better for first year students and sophomores so they can ask their peers. " LSA senior and president of the club Lakshmi Seshadri stated, " I think that the club is a way of helping you meet other people in the same situa- tion as pre-meds, and the outside activities help you get more at ease with the stress of being pre-med. " Myrna Jackson In its third year of existence, the Division of Kinesiology Student Gov- ernment acted as a liaison between the faculty, staff, and its students. An important responsibility of the orga- nization was to earn money for the 172 Organizations Greg Emmanuel school of Kinesiology. At bi-weekly meetings, the group worked with the staff and listened for any suggestions that would be profit- able or improve relations in the school. The student government sold items such as sweatshirts and car details to earn money and help pro- mote the School of Kinesiology. In past years, the members put on pre- game events with the help of other volunteers and sponsors. Much of the group ' seamed money and effort this year went toward im- proving and expanding their career resource center.

Niskar said, " I ' m really proud of all our accomplishments. Our member- ship is growing and our activities are becoming annual events. " Vitale summed up what the organi- zation was all about by stating, " It ' s great fun, a great way to get to know other nurses and put something into the com- munity. " The Nursing Council served as the student government of the School of Nursing. It was made up of a president and four representatives from each class in the School of Nursing. The organiza- tion concentrated on making money for the school and the individual classes. A majority of their income came from vol- untary contributions and the sales of sweatshirts and car decals. Addition- ally, they tried to improve communica- tion between other students and faculty of the School of Nursing.

" Two of the most popular perform- ing groups on campus, the Women ' s and Men ' s Glee Clubs, were com- pletely student-run, except for music selection and auditions done by their respective directors, Earl Coleman and Jerry Blackstone. Using their talents, the two clubs were big con- tributors to the community and the university. The Women ' s Glee Club has not been in continuous existence for very long. Theircontinuoushistorystarted in 1977 when Rosa Lee Edwards decided that there needed to be a women ' s singing group. Ever since then the Women ' s Glee Club helped out in the community, performed for various campus activities, and started to tour. They had a Community Work Day where all the members of the club volunteered to help out with somesortofcommunityservice. They worked for the Red Cross, Recycle Ann Arbor, and painted the W1C house. They had two main concerts each year, which were plenty for all the work that went into getting a concert underway. At the end of the year they toured for about a week in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. One of their stops was at an old Opera House way up in Copper Country. One problem the Women ' s Glee Club had to face was the lack of publicity. To get their name in the public mind, they performed for many community and campus events. During football season you could hear a small group of them, Moe ' s Boost- ers, at tailgate parties. They sang for the State Street Association party, they went carolling, and they sang for many charities. Theyalsodid the National Anthem at many sporting events, such as gymnastics, Women ' s basketball, and Women ' s volleyball.

I enjoy myself so much and it ' s one of the best ways to relax. " Relaxation seemed to be the overall feeling of the atmosphere that the women in the glee club felt when they were together. Patricia Marine, President of the Women ' s Glee Club, said, " When I started out, I was in it to sing and I wasn ' t that involved. My perception has changed about how much work actually goes into it. The members are a great group of women and I love it. It would be very hard for me to get through graduate school without the glee club to es- cape and relax. By being president, I hope to give something back to the Club. " The Men ' s Glee Club was very traditional. Founded in 1895, they were the largest and oldest student run organization on campus, oldest public university collegiate choir in North America, and 2nd oldest col- legiate choir in North America. This year they performed their 133rd an- nual fall concert. At the beginning of every concert they opened it with " Laudes Atque Carmina " which is mostly Latin and a little Greek. They have been doing this for over 100 years. Brian McLave, President of the Men ' s Glee Club, said, " The Glee Club, without a doubt, is the most rewarding artistic challenge of my extended college career. It ' s fan- tastic, it has kept me sane. It ' s full of great guys and offers a wide spectrum of the university. There is nothing to replace my experience with it. " The Men ' s Glee Club traveled very frequently. They were welcomed in Czechoslovakia, Russia, Poland, Germany, Austria, Estonia, and all over the United States. At the end of this year, they went to the East Coast and visited Washington DC, Boston, New York, and Philadel- phia, . They Women ' s and Men ' s Glee Clubs shared many similarities, and among the most popular were their two subsets. The Harmonettes were a subset of the Women ' s Glee Club and the Friars were a subset of the Men ' s Glee Club. These acapella groups consist of eight members each.

Members of the Undergradu- ate Psychology Club did not partici- pate only in psychology functions, but the objective of the club was to provide an informal setting for stu- dents with an interest in psychology. Club president and psychology senior Debbie Stone said, " It ' s basi- cally a social and academic club. We have happy hours, movies, study breaks times when we hang out and get to know each other. You just have to have an interest in psychol- ogy. That ' s the only requirement. " Besides fraternizing and exchang- ing ideas about their interests in psy- chology, the Undergraduate Psychol- ogy Club also sponsored speakers and panels of psychology academics to discuss student concerns and open themselves to an informal environ- ment. " This year we ' ve had Under- graduate Psychology Committee chairperson James Hilton, biopsychology professor Kent Berrige, and personality psychology T A Bruce Ellis speak, " Stone added. " 1 think it ' s a really good opportunity for people interested in psychology to be a part of the university on a smaller level. " Did you need a lawyer? Look no further than the Undergraduate Law Club, a group of over 200 aspiring pre-law students. " The purpose of the Law Club is to assist undergradu- ate students interested in attending law school and or preparing for ca- reers in law by providing resources and information not normally avail- able to the individual, " Law Club social co-chair and law school senior Derek Johnson said. The Law Club was open to all undergraduate students, regardless of major, and had an accessible office in 1 78 Organizations :: irabe mfo ookno lor I ,. i room 4121 in the Michigan Union. The Law Club sponsored numerous panels, including one involving the UM law school Dean of Admissions. The group also made a trip to Chi- cago, primarily to visit law schools and see a 2nd City Comedy Club act. Members of the club were eligible to try out for the U of M mock trial team, which competed in mock liti- gation tournaments at the regional and national level. President of the Undergraduate Law Club, Michelle Rozovics, said, " The Law Club can help anyone at any stage of preparation for a career in law to decide if it is the correct field right down to the law school applica- tion process.

Results indicated that 80% of those voting said the current draft of the code should not be implemented and 95% said that no code should be implemented without a student vote. Representing the Students MSA and LSA Student Government go all out for their constituencies. Over the years, the Michigan Stu- dent Assembly (MSA) has toiled to become the voice of the students. Totalling fifty members and repre- senting all the University schools, the assembly concentrated on aiding and funding student organizations. In addition, they offered a Student Legal Service and a Health Service. All members of the MSA and any of the three separate student govern- ments were elected in the fall for one year during the MSA elections. In the fall of 1 992 , MS A members involved themselves in the contro- versy surrounding the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities. In an attempt to inform the student body about the student code of con- duct, MSA sponsored several meet- ings and protests against the Code, involving the entire campus, from LSA to Rackham. Colleen Tighe, director of the Michigan Student Assembly, maintain ed, " The best way for students to voice their opinions is through the MSA. " A branch of MSA, the fifteen- member LSA Student Government was also responsible for student rep- resentation and group funding. Dedi- cated to promoting an atmosphere of learning and open discussion, The LSA Student Government sponsored several big-name debates including a controversial gathering between former Los Angeles police chief Daryl Gates and ACLU director Nadine Strossen, as well as a panel featuring former Democratic presidential can- didate George McGovem and former Attorney General under President 180 Organizations MICHIGAN STUDENT ASSEMBLY Front: Jon Van Camp, Dorene Red Cloud, Stuart Kaplan, Leah McRae, Brian Keight Second: Leilani Nishime, Leigh Ann Vaughn, Hunter Van Valkenburgh, Ede Fox, Regina Hathaway, Rogers DeRoo, Stephanie Acho, Jennifer Collins Back: Amy Ellis, Tobias Zimmerman, Todd Bartley, Robert Van Houweling, John McCloskey, Tom Macek, Janelle White, Fred Werner, Harry Nelson LS A STUDENT GOVERNMENT Front: Beth O ' Connor, Jennifer Bacon, Jennifer Bayson, Kristin Harding Back: Brett White, Andrew Russell hereof Sarah Whiting Reagan, Edward Meese.

In addition, RHA allocated money to various student groups on campus for programs that benefited residents. The Pre-Class Bash, held on the tennis courts at Palmer Field, was the largest RHA sponsored event. It attracted many of first-year students from across the campus. Linda Stalker, RHA ' s Executive Assistant and Natural Resource third-year stu- dent, said " The Pre-Class Bash is a good bonding experience. " To add to the excitement, CD ' s, T-Shirts, mugs, and other gifts were given away. RHA attended conferences to learn more from other universities. The Regional Conference (GLACURH), held at Central Michigan and the National Confer- ence (NACURH), held at the Uni- versity of South Carolina, provided RHA members a way to learn new ideas. During the conferences, par- ticipants attended workshops and discussions that addressed both good and unsuccessful activities which have been attempted at universities.

Promotin Positive Images The College Republicans and the Student Alumni Council polish their respective causes Each year, thousands of people visited the Michigan campus to ex- plore the school, visited their stu- dent sons and daughters, or to be exposed to the atmosphere of a large university. And, for many of the people, the Student Alumni Coun- cil (SAC) was the organization that guided them through their experi- ences in Ann Arbor. The most prominent program that SAC was involved in is the planning and administration of Parent ' s Week- end every fall term. In the winter term, SAC also ran the Little Sib- lings ' Weekend, in which 600 younger brothers and sisters of U-M students had a chance to experience the college life firsthand. " We ' re adding a new vice president to take charge of that event, " says current SAC President David Hoard. " The year ' s gone really well, and we also hope to host the District Conven- tion [of Student Alumni Clubs] in 1994. " SAC ' s most conspicuous activity, however, was leading regular campus tours for prospective students seven days a week. The SAC guides, who are all student volunteers, gave hour- long tours of the central campus to over a thousand prospective students and their family members each term, as well as during the spring and sum- mer months. " I got involved after seeing tour guides at other colleges, and I thought that it was a really neat job, " says guide and LSA Junior Moselle Leventhal. " I really love it now. I ' ve learned all kinds of little neat facts about the university, like where the building names came from and why the campus looks the way it does now. It ' s a lot of fun.

An Experience Like No Other AIESEC provides valuable experience to students interested in many careers AIESEC, a French acronym for Students Interested in Business Man- agement and Commerce, had an extremely successful year. Founded in 1 948, AIESEC was a national and international student business orga- nization located on nearly 70 cam- puses nationwide and in 74 countries around the world. Also, AIESEC was the only student organization represented at the United Nations. Through the AIESEC exchange internship program, AIESEC stu- dents could intern in a foreign coun- try for up to 18 months giving AIESEC students an international competitive edge in the job market and companies an international fla- vor to its workplace. AIESEC also brought internationalism to its re- spective communities through inter- national projects aimed at educating the community on different cultures. For the 1991-1992 year, AIESEC Michigan received a bevy of awards- a testimony to the dedication and leadership qualities of its members. At the AIESEC 1992 National Con- vention hosted by AIESEC Purdue, AIESEC Michigan was cited " most OutstandingChapterintheNation, " by the national staff of AIESEC United States, Inc. AIESEC Michi- gan received this prestigious award for its stand-out performance in com- munity projects to educate the com- munity on different cultures; excep- tional involvement in the business community; and the all-around strong leadership skills its members exhibit. Among these important achievements, AIESEC also received several other awards. At the 1 992 Central Fall Regional, AIESECMichiganwascited for three successful projects educating the com- munity on different cultures. At the 1992 Central Spring Re- gional, AIESEC Michigan ' s own Eli Cohen was elected Central Region Student Director of AIESEC United 1 86 Organizations 4 States, Inc. Cohen joined because, " I wanted to gain practical business experience and associate with busi- ness leaders with a global mindset, and I knew AIESEC would give me that experience.

Findley was now responsible for the direction of AIESEC United States, Inc. and represented the organiza- tion at international AIESEC con- ferences.

" The Gilbert and Sullivan Society was a unique student organization because they were solely devoted to Gilbert and Sullivan productions, which for the most part were comic operettas. For the past 45 years, the Gilbert and Sullivan Society consisted of stu- dents, faculty, staff, and members of the community. The students, fac- ulty, and staff came from a wide range of schools, from LSA and the School of Music to the Law and Medical Schools. The society was very com- mitted and had a lot of fun. David Zinn, a recent residential college graduate, stated, " Unlike most groups, we don ' t all, as individuals, want to go to the top. Just being on the stage at the Mendelssohn Theater makes my life more interesting and so much fun, but we all work hard! " The society performed two pro- ductions in the past year. The first was " Ruddigore " , which like most G ilbert and Sullivan productions was complicated. The second production perfonned by Gilbert and Sullivan was " Gondaliers " . The plot was, to say the least, very complex. After the performance of the first play, the next was aniticipated with great ea- gerness. All members agreed that Gilbert and Sullivan was a very fun and exciting organization. Susan Duderstadt, medical student, said, " It ' s a fun organization. It ' s a great chance to work with fun people. The society is a truly fun atmosphere.

" Asian American students felt it necessary to voice their concerns and interests to the University community in ef- forts to promote understanding and awareness, " said Programming Di- rector Michael Liem. Advocacy and awareness are conducted through lec- tures, films, and their annual art show and theatrical performances of Asian and Asian American history. Business School Junior and UMAASC treasurer Wendy Chin added that " the coalition also dis- cusses racism, and image of Asian American women in the media, in- ter-racial relationships and literature about Asian American history and heritage. " She also commented that she would like to see more non- Asian students take interest, get in- volved and learn more about " our history and heritage. " Both Chin and Liem stated that UMAASC had been important and enriching to them. Wendy Chin stated the UMAASC was " some- where I can go to confide in and receive support.

JRJ 1 Grey Emm.u A Taste of Culture The ASCA helps students get a sense of culture and tradition The University of Michigan Ar- menian Student Cultural Associa- tion (ASCA), composed of both undergraduate and graduate students, served as both a social organization for Armenian and Armenian- Ameri- can students on campus, as well as a source of information to raise general awareness of the issues that affected Armenians. At their bimonthly meetings, the members of the ASCA published a newsletter and schedule of social events, such as member trips to Chi- cago and Detroit ' s Greektown. One of the club ' s main activities was rais- ing money and offering help to the former Soviet republic of Armenia, which was engaged in a war with its neighbor Azerbaijan since 1988, and had suffered a devastating blockade since gaining its independence two years ago. In doing their part to help their fellow in Armenia, the ASCA held several fund raising dances for the students and the local Armenian community, with traditional Arme- nian music, dancing, and food. One dance in February raised $6000 for relief supplies for the needy of Armenia ' s capital, Yerevan. Earlier in the year, the club also donated over $2000 for personal thanks of Supreme Patriarch and Catholics of all Armenians Vasken I, the head of the Armenian Orthodox Church. " We did a lot of fund raising for them because they were in such dire straits, and they really needed our help there, " said ASCA President Carl Bardakian. " Armenians throughout the world have been giving help to these people, to provide them with necessities like food and kerosene heaters to survive the winter. " Another aspect of the ASCA ' s activities was raising popular aware- ness of the " Armenian Genocide " of 1915-18 in Turkey and Asia Minor. To this end, the ASCA placed ads in newspapers and banners on the Diag, and helped to organize a panel dis- cussion on the genocide and its mod- ern repercussion in October, which included U-M professors Bardakj ian, Suny, and Endelman.

" To us, it ' s one of the most important things, " said Sarkissian. " We need to pre- serve the memory of these events. This is our history. " The ASCA also gave its members the opportunity to engage in com- puter networking, take Armenian dance lessons, hear short talks by professors in the U-M Armenian Studies Department, and eat together at a Sunday dinner. " We ' re all really proud of the club, " said Sarkissian.

" The members of the ASCA felt a tremendous sense of pride in their culture, which was accentuated by their charitable efforts and the tra- vails of their people. " It ' s an incred- ible club, " said Bardakian. " There ' s a traditional saying that to be bom Armenian is easy, but to remain Ar- menian is hard.

With over 50 people attending weekly meetings, many committees formed. The organization printed and dis- tributed T-Shirts, organized rallies, and slowly the groups ' goals became larger. LSAjuniorand IslamicCircle member, Munirah Curtis, said, " I think the organization is really great. I ' m happy that it ' s reaching out to a lot of Muslims. It ' s providing an outlet for members to meet other Muslims. It ' s also very educational and it constantly teaches you about your religion. " The Islamic Circle organized the Bosnia-Somalia Rally, which was a success. Volunteers received many signatures supporting aid to Bosnia and Somalia, and informed many students of the problems. The group organized the " Ayoodha and Be- yond, " a lecture regarding Muslim and Hindu relations in the United States and India. An " Islamic Out- reach " group was fonned to commu- nicate with people of other faiths. This provided an opportunity for members to learn about different re- ligions and others to leam about the Muslim religion. The members also organized the " Islamics Dimension ' s of Malcom X " lecture. Guest speak- ers, Imam Jameel Al-Amin and Paul Lee, spoke about how Malcom X converted to the Muslim religion. LSA Junior and Islamic Circle mem- ber, Deana Solaiman, said, " I feel the presentation went very well, both speakers addressed what principles Malcom X truly stood for the prin- ciples of Islam.

Within the organization, there were many smaller more concentrated groups, such as the cultural pro- Israel groups. Elliot Cosgrove, LSA senior, stated, " It ' s ritual, it ' s cultural, it ' s academic, and it ' s traditional. " Every Friday evening, Hillel held services and afterward everyone ate dinner together, to bring themselves closer. There were three separate services held for each different form of Judaism, reformed, conservative, and orthodox. Hillel built a sense of a smaller community and closer rela- tion between all members. It made it easier for them to reach out and learn about their religion in a new way. Jill Major, third year Law student, said, " It ' s a sense of a familiar kind of community at an impersonal univer- sity. It ' s opportunity to explore my Jewish identity in a new and inde- pendent way. " Hillel also sponsored several spe- cial events throughout the year. Each month they chose a theme creened related movies. Other events in- cluded Israeli dancing and Shulchan Ivrit. Sulchan Ivrit was held to let members practice their Hebrew in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Hillel also sponsored speakers who came to educate and entertain members and volunteered in the community. Fur- thermore, the Jewish Learning Cen- ter offered courses such as Hebrew, Yiddish, Basic Judaism, and many others. Besides special events that Hillel sponsored the publication of the magazines, Consider and Pros- pect. Hillel was very community oriented. Within Hillel, there was a group known as Volunteers in Ac- tion volunteered at soup kitchens, Habitat for Humanity, and picked apples for the needy.

In the month of January, Hillel held it ' s 8th annual Israel Confer- ence Day. They discussed the envi- ronmental movement in Israel, the peace process, Palestinian history, US-Israeli relations, and the economy. At Rackham Auditorium, Yaron Ezrachi, professor of political science at Hebrew University, gave the keynote opening address, his pri- mary concern being US-Israeli rela- tions. The closing address was given by Arthur Avnon, Israel Consul General in Chicago. Hillel proved to be a basic " home away from home " for some students. Marni Holsman, Residential College junior, said, " Hillel is an institution Emile Duhl for Jewish students to discover things through political or community ser- vice, which are not necessarily Jew- ish oriented.

" The local Epsilon chapter con- sisted of twenty-two members. Dur- ing the year, the organization held a play to tribute Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., held various fund raisers, and volunteered in the community. Members organized a program called " A Call to Spirituality. " It was a time for people to share their reli- gious beliefs, and how it influenced their lives here at college. The group also made trips to a youth detention center to talk about the importance of education and goals. Vice-presi- dent of Alpha Phi Alpha and busi- ness senior, Dallas Lenear, said, " Here at the Epsilon chapter we place a large emphasis on brotherhood. We ' ve created a family support sys- tem which has lasted 84 years. The organization has been and will con- tinue to be the school for the better making of men. " LSA sophomore, Terzelle J enkins, said, " APA has had many distinguished members that upheld the dedication of service to the community. I feel privileged to have become a member and will con- tinue to do work to uplift the Ann Arbor community. " Phi Alpha Kappa (PAK) enjoyed an active calender of events through- out the year. In particular Family day, Homecoming, the Reno Party, and the Spring Formal Banquet were all well received. The athletic pro- gram of PAK offered the opportunity for intramural competition in almost every sport. Bible study was also a regular item on the calender.

Sisterhood and Scholarship The Angel Club, Dymonz, and Zeta Phi Beta volunteered their time to help and educate our community The Angel Club, founded in 1 982 , was a community service organiza- tion that focused on scholarship, sis- terhood, the community. The non- greek and non-profit organization volunteered their services through- out the Washtenaw county, as well as on campus. Members made their annual visit to the Motts Children ' s Hospital to hang greenery and deco- rate for Christmas, hoping to give the children a holiday atmosphere. The group periodically enjoyed tu- toring younger children. The Angel Club also volunteered their services to the Red Cross Healthorama. Members worked at different stations and helped nurses conduct tests to people who qualified for the free test- ing. Madeline Means, president of Angel Club, said, " The good thing about the organization is that it cre- ates bonds within the group. It al- lows you to reach out to the commu- nity. It has brought a lot of positive qualities to me. You can see the affect a small group of people can have when they come together. " The Dymonz, a service organiza- tion for African- American women, met every Friday evening in the Union. The organization took part in many charity events that ben- efited the Ann Arbor community. They earned over $400 for a local chapter by holding the Teeter-totter bucket drive held on the Diag. Mem- bers of the organization painted a house that needed renovations for the Salvation Army. The group also donated money to the Black Student Emergency Loan Fund that they re- ceived from donations during a the Martin Luther King birthday party.

The local chapter, Gamma Delta, was established at the University of Michigan in 1970. Since then the members have be- came an integral part of the Black African-American communit in Ann Arbor. The organization spon- sored programs with the campus and city to promote the educational, health, and social welfare of man- kind.

Members of Alpha Chi Sigma studied and sought the advancement of chemistry, pharmacy, biology, chemical engineering, and life sci- ences. President Barbara Rocci, Chemical Engineering senior said, " We help members to meet others in their major. It ' s good to share old exams and help each other get through certain professors ' classes. " The group also sponsored a high school outreach, tutoring on cam- pus, coffee and donut sales in the chemistry building. " People have fun, " Rocci said, " In the fall we hunted the Wyvern, a dragon-like creature, which is symbolic of the fraternity. The pledges searched the campus for clues that taught the history of chem- istry. Alas, as there aren ' t many Wyverns in this region, we usually use a picture of one. " The Wyvern hid in Burton tower most recently. Little wonder that the brute was hard to find. The chapter also planned to do a cleanup of toxic waste around the campus. The Alpha Kappa Psi professional business fraternity was reformed in 1 987 . " This year is one of the better ones. The spirit ' s been pretty good, " said Vice-President Jon Hobbs, Eco- nomics senior. Said Vice-President Monica Hanson, LSA senior and pledge chair, " We want to give stu- dents a chance to develop profes- sionally by exposing them to the business world and by locating a group of friends to form study groups. Eleven members attended the East Central regional conference in Cincinnati. They went to professional develop- ment workshops, discussed policy of fraternity meetings, chapter compe- titions, and attended a Karoake night.

As a non-traditional student, Simmons stood out among the crowd of typical undergraduates. Yet underneath the surface, his background separated him further. Sirnrnbns opped out of high school in the tenth grade to sell and ni flrugs. " I made a lot of money off of it, " he said. " I that high school had anything to offer me at the time. After that episode, Simmons worked for two Chrysler plants to try and get his life back on track. " The work was too monoto- nous and I was not making much money from either jobs, so I decided to sell drugs again, " he said. That path lead him deeper into crime. One day he and a group of his friends agreed to kidnap his head supplier and ransom him to his wife. " He had a lot of money. He owned a lot of property. After we kidnapped him, we were evicted for armed robbery and kidnapping. We held him up at gunpoint for his car keys and his gun, then the next m. m k arrested and servflHHHan BialrHars in prison.

" After prison, I worked as a truck helper, cleaning up debris. I did that for a parole job, " he said. " Then I looked for another job and found one at a company called Kelsey- Hayes. I made brakes for cars, and after a little while I gave that up, too. I also thought that work was too repetitious. " Simmons quickly discovered that his jobs were not living up to his cxpec " My last job was at a beef processing finn. , I went back to school to get my GED. , one day my foreman asked me to lift something heavy, and I refused him. He got angry, and fired me. I don ' t regret that because the work was dangerous and hard.

" Simmons ' years here have focused his ambitions and given him . " While I was doing drugs, I was broke all :n working for other people all my life, and big for someone else I ' m constantly broke and wondering if I ' ll have my job the next day, " he said. " If I ' m working for myself, at least I don ' t have to worry if I ' m going to have a job the next day or not, I ' ll know. " Life experiences of many varieties have taught Ronald Simmons this lesson. Katherine Metres, an LSA junior in political science, quickly learned what the " political " part of her major meant. During her junior year, Metres started writing a column called Shades of Red, an opinion column on campus vi tlH dflfe- ' n flfek. 1 Y view. Metres soon understood just how di view was when she wrote an article titled " iTTOn s p: bias hurts peace. " Questioning Clinton ' s stand on Arab- Israeli issues, Metres quoted Clinton as saying, " the settlement issue should be addressed in negotiations between the parties and not as American policy... The Arabs are the obstacle to peace. " Metres ' s article also stated that the buttons that the Clintons wore claiming that they were " pro-Israel " made them one sided. The Clintons, she argued, created " one-sided posturing by the United States, which is supposed to be an honest broker between the parties, may cost the region its best chance for peac j| phis year, fiddle m r m bast. According to herTMetres ' s editor was a strong supporter of Israel, and after reading this opinion column, decided that her article lacked " appropriate documentation. " According to Metres ' s editor, Metres should have " cited her sources. " One month later, Metres ' s column was dismissed again on the basis of her not having " developed a consistent style. " Metres personally felt that her dismissal was not on the basis of a Voices 213 consistent style, but rather on her opposition to Clinton ' s pro- Israeli position. She felt that the voice of Arabs and Arab raised. they [the Daily editors] had not been issatistieS with my work up until then, and my discussions with students and faculty on campus indicated that it was well received.

Liem knew this ranked as a top school, having talked to his teachers, friends, and the most important alumnus, his father. When he started school, Liem also joined the Asian American Student Coalition. " The organization has taught me a lot in terms of Asian American history, " he said. Yet this knowledge heightened Liem ' s awareness about the status of ethnic groups in the University. " I think this University has along way to go in terms of teaching minority history. Therejs too much eurocenti ' minoriti this way, " needs. " Liem would also like to broaden the understanding between groups on campus. " We need more interaction with students of color, " he said. " I don ' t like people saying that Asian Americans are the model minority. Before the civil rights movement, we were considered villains. " Liem ' s concerns about the atmosphere here did not end with himself. " I would like to see some other changes at this University. " I knew of some rape incidences in the residence ills where the_University tries to keep the whole thing quiet, the women I know feel they have to walk yirh a companion at night because they don ' t feel safe. I don ' t have to do this, " he said. Liem has tried to do his part by instructing people on self defense in workshops. Itural 2 14 Voices Transferring a year and a half ago from the University of Western Ontario, Muhammad Mamdani, now a senior in the School of Pharmacy, brought more than an interest in medicine and science to Ann Arbor. Mamdani ' s religion, Shiate Muslim, also played an important role in his life. " There are very many sects of the Muslim religion. Many people don ' t consider us Muslim because our subdivision is an extremely liberal sect, " he said. Although he was of Indian heritage, Marr predominantly non-Indian Canadian higlB:h there were few Indian Canadian students, their history and culture were not taught. Yet that situation changed somewhat when he went to college. " I learned more about Indian history and culture than I knew before. The more I learn about both, the more I respect them, " he said. As president of the Indian American Student Association, Mamdani realized some of the problems among the Indian community here, and he wanted to help solve those problems. He stated, " Amjjg fl| Indian community, people are very ii ' s like, ho ' .v mikh I:idkm Jovou have igion Still, Mamdani had mainly associated with other Indian Americans since coming here. " There were whites in my high school, but I didn ' t feel as comfortable around them. I feel more comfortable around Indians than people of other races because we share a common culture, " he said. Sometimes I don ' t like it, though. Many Indian people here have a false sense of security. Many think that they are smarter than other people. It doesn ' t make sense. Intelligence is not determined by color. " The transition to life at the University, however, was not altogether smooth for Mamdani. tm ie hardest part here was meeting people. I had to go out of |l liked the people I met, " said ch here. I hear a lot about sexual assault and rape, and I know that a few Indian women are raped by Indian men, but there ' s a lot of race loyalty, so the woman hardly ever says anything. Once a woman sat on my lap at a party and I didn ' t want her to. that as sexual assault, but I didn ' t like i women deal with the pressure. " From 5,000 to 36,000 people proved to be a refreshing change for Stacy Balduck, who is from Algonac, a small town in Michigan. Once here, Balduck made another change and became involved in Students for Life. " I got involved with Students for Life my first year. I saw how important it was Voices 215 dighabilitationcen||r i ream after all the demonstrations and protests were happening, " she said. " I saw that being pro-choice and pro-life were serious issues on campus, and as a strong Christian I women see that there was another, better altern abortion. " Balduck has witnessed her share of clashes between the two sides on this issue. " I remember last year we were speaking on the diag when some pro-choicers came and took our micro- phone from us. We had reserved the spot, rented out the equipment, and they just came up and took the microphone away from us. Nothing happened. We just yelled back and forth, " said Balduck. " We have done other things on campus, like information tables. We also ha us who have gone through depressi tion, who wished they had never d see it get to that point, so we try to attack the problem at the source, " she said. After graduation, Balduck, a senior in sociology, planned to become a social worker. She wanted to work in adoption agencies placing children in caring homes. This is part of her philosophy as a pro-life advocate. RlMiat abortion is okay, where are we going to e?Jjffill we start killing elderly people because they for themselves anymore? And I ' m not ready to believe that children will automatically be beaten or have a bad life. The bottom line is the organization and I believe in life, and I can ' t compromise God. " Religion has formed the backbone and served as the continuity in Frankie Hing ' s life. Hing ' s interest in religion stemmed from her upbringing but deepened after leaving Florida A M University after only two years. She wanted to focus herself before she continued her studies. Hing explained, " after Florida A M, I worked in v; small jobs until I found a better job as an office man two podiatrists. After a year and a half, I gave up my job as office manager to fulfill a greater dream. I wanted to help underrepresented people. I worked for a drug and alcohol as a counselor, and then as an administra- us exual herself life " through a friend at work, I began to attend church regularly. I volunteered in the church bookstore and began doing community service work. I met my husband 216 Voices stre i in the bookstore, where we both worked as volunteers. This experience increased her devotion to her religion. " In the church I embraced the concepts that Jesus taught, " Hing said. " I became so much closer to God that I decided to attend ministry school, and I became a minister. " The choice prove to be right for Hing since " Christianity i the foundation and i A flr platform for any and everything I do in mv life.

" Through all of my experience, I know that I ' m going to be a lawyer, " she said. " After seeing the way the system is set up, I want to be an advocate for people through civil rights law and set up ministries nationally and abroad. " Hing has begun to pursue her goal of becoming an attorney by attending the University where she was a triple major in anthropology, African American studies, and American culture. During that time, however, she has noticed room for improvement in the learning change anything on this campus, it the school, " Hing said. " I would have more students of color attending this college. I think that the resolution for racism must come from the policies of the university, each and every individual, and the society at large. I would also change the format that most instructors teach by, opening it up to allow more free flowing exchange of ideas. " The flow of ideas and opinions has been an essential element She has found this difficult to the alienation other people give Im married, or an older student. " I ahead in expressing her views.

PLAYING THE DATING GAME ALPHA DELTA Pi HOSTS VALENTINE ' S PHILANTHROPY In an effort to raise money for their national philanthropy, the women of Alpha Delta Pi helped a few lucky students in their search for the perfect date. Under the direction of philanthropy chair Carrie Makarewicz, Alpha Delta Pi held its fifth annual Dating Game on February 1 1 , 1993 at the U-Club. The event raised approximately $2,000 which was donated to The Ronald McDonald House in Ann Arbor. With a format similar to the popular television show, there were 15 different rounds in which " bachelorettes " and " bach- elors " could hope to win a date. In each round the bachelor or bachelorette was able to ask his her three choices questions to determine which man or woman would be the ideal match. The candidates made up two ot their own questions and then chose a final question which had been written by a member of Alpha Delta Pi. Sarah Whiting Representing AET1 fra- ternity, Ari Nessel laughs at the response given to his question by one of the bachelorettes. Each Creek organization par- ticipating entered two con- testants. " It ' s a humorous opportunity for people to vent their dating faistrations while raising money for a worthwhile cause, " said Amy McWhirter, an LSA senior, sister of Alpha Delta Pi, and member of the Dating Game set-up committee. | Requiring extensive planning, the fund-raiser was also an effective way to involve many of the sorority sisters. In addition to running the entire show, the women also planned meetings with Union personnel to reserve the U-Club, advertised the event, arranged a two-day bucket drive in the Diag, and solicited donations and prizes. " It ' s a great event because it involves the whole house for a couple of months. Unlike a one-day event where a few people do everything, almost everyone has a job to do in preparing for the Dating Game, " said Makarewicz. The event was a huge success as thirty houses participated, and the U-Club was filled to capacity with students cheering on their favorite contestants. Each house that participated was also asked to donate $50 in order to have two participants in the Dating Game.

This program was called the Scholarship Dinner. This event had been in existence for many years and was one ot the most rewarding events for the members of the sorority. It proved to uplift the pirits of the participating women, rewarding them for academic excel- lence and achievement. M The Scholarship Dinner was always a success tor the members of Alpha Gamma Delta because of the positive attitude that it gave. It was anticipated by the members to be rewarded tor their academic achievement each year, as well as by the members who were not rewarded as an incentive to do well in their studies. However, the Scholarship Dinner was not as successful as the members had hoped this year. The women ot Alpha Gamma Delta strived tor an over all grade point average of 3.0 from the members, but this year the women barely missed their goal by obtaining a collective GPA of 2.97. The members, however, were not about to give up on the meaning of the dinner to the women as a result of this slight disappointment. Business School senior, Alpha Gamma Delta sorority member, and Scholarship Dinner Chairperson Deanna Butler said, " Scholarship has always been important to our house.

" The Scholarship Dinner was held also to encourage members to bring their professors, TA ' s, and friends. This year the event was on December 8, 1992 and had a nice turn out of people who provided support to those being honored. Butler continued to say, " We invite professors because we like to reinforce to them our scholarship excellence. " The scholarship event was a social activity that promoted more interaction between the instructors and their students. Alpha Gamma Delta member and College of Engineering junior Jana Archer stated, " The Scholarship Dinner is a chance to become acquainted with professors and TA ' s on a more personal level. " President of Alpha Gamma Delta, and LSA senior Karen Weiss said, " I think it ' s a great way to honor the scholarship achievements of various members in the house from the previous semester. It is also used as an opportunity to invite professors from the University community to honor those women in the house who are being recognized. " Alpha Gamma Delta hosted one of two scholarship events per semester. The other function was a Scholarship - Activities Tea. The Scholarship-Activities Tea was where the sorority recog- nized outstanding scholastic achievements and honors, but also recognized the extra-curricular activities and other achievements of its members. Women of Alpha Gamma Delta were involved in many different organizations and activities on campus. Thus, the Activities Tea was also a very important event each year. -Myma Jackson " THE SCHOLAR- SHIP DIN- NER is A CHANCE TO GET AC- QUAINTED WITH PRO- FESSORS AND TA ' S ON A MORE PERSONAL LEVEL.

The Challenge was an attendance contest be- tween Greek fraternities and sororities organized to gain additional support for the university ' s less publicized athletic programs. " Conducted by the Athletic Department, through the Greek system, the Big Screen Challenge is designed to increase atten- dance and awareness of women ' s basketball games, " explained Alpha Xi Delta Patty Pozios, an LSA junior. The three games of the first Bip Screen Challenge were played on January 13, February 12, and March 6, 1993. The Greek organization bringing the largest number of fans over the three games would win the grand prize for which the event was named, a forty-six-inch big screen television. The second place prize was a live performance by the band " Code Blue. " The house placing third would receive a new VCR, and any house with a crowd of at least sixty at any one of the three games would be awarded a pizza party. After the second game, Alpha Xi Delta was among the top contenders. The women boasted a turn out of fifty-six fans to cheer on the women ' s team versus Michigan State and over eighty for the Wisconsin game. In the end, however, Alpha Xi Delta took Igcond place as Theta Chi won the television. Since sororities didn ' t host parties at their houses, Alpha Xi Delta opted for a cash prize instead the band performance. Although the women were somewhat upset by the loss to Theta Chi, they were pleased to have participated in the contest. " A lot of people from our house pulled together to win the television, and it was disappointing when we ended up in second place. Still, it was fun, and we enjoyed supporting the women ' s basketball team, " declared LSA junior Emily Harrison. Athletic Department Marketing Representative John Krige commented, " The attendance at women ' s basketball games is up 25%, and with the great potential of the coaching staff and improved efforts in recruiting the women ' s program is has a very bright future and is definitely one to keep an eye on in years to come.

A FORMAL MYSTERY DELTA PHI EPSILONS PLAY DETECTIVES AT SEMI-FORMAL On December 4, 1 992 the members of Delta Phi Epsilon honored their pledges with a semi-form, il at the Campus Inn in Ann Arbor. The semitormal with a murder mystery theme consisted of re- hearsed skits performed by the pledges and a murder mystery contest performed by hired actors and actresses. Following the mystery game, the pledges expressed t the active members their appreciation of Delta Phi Epsilon by singing their pledge class song. The evening began with a murder mystery game i it " Who done it? " The women of Delta Phi Epsilon brought in ,i professional troop of actors and actresses to perform the murder mystery skit so that the game of guessing who did it woul d be fair for all those participating. If sisters of the sorority had performed the skit, cheating could have taken place. Hiring actors and actresses ensured that none of the sisters knew the soluru m u the mystery. Guests, pledges, and active members were encouraged to figure out who killed the victim. The first person to solve the mystery was rewarded with a gift certificate to the restaurant Gratzi. After the game of " Who done it? " the pledges performed skits mocking the active members. Pledges of many sororities orga- nized skits which playfully imitated and made fun of things which the active members had done throughout the semester. " It ' s a good chance for the pledges to tease their big sisters, and everyone had a great laugh watching it, " said Robyn Schiff, president of Delta Phi Epsilon and LSA sophomore. The pledges gathered together after the skits to sing their pledge class song which described the love they felt for their sisters, their devotion to the house, and how much they had enjoyed being pledges of Delta Phi Epsilon. The active member of Delta Phi Epsilon really enjoyed the pledges ' song. " Everyone had a warm smile as they listened to the pledge song, " Schi |H|M Mgflfl stated. Overall, the pledge semi-formal was a great way to conclude the pledge term. The sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon had a great time, but agreed that the semitormal could have been impn n ed.

The women of AZmoved into their house during the first week of January . The new sorority house, located on Washtenaw, used to be Perry Nursery Schooi. When AZ pur- chased the house , the nurs- ery school relocated to a buildingbetter-suited to its needs. 228 Greeks RENOVATION COMPLETED DELTA ZETAS MOVE INTO THEIR NEW HOME After years of searching for a house and months of hearings with the Ann Arbor zoning committee and neighborhood residents, Delta Zeta was granted permission to begin renovation of Perry Nursery School on Washtenaw. Renovations began two months late due to legal complications, so occupation of the house had to be postponed. The women of Delta Zeta finally moved into their new home during the first week of January, a semester later than had been planned. " We were all so excited that we bought the nursery school. The people of Perry were also happy, because they couldn ' t afford to keep up the house on Washtenaw any longer. Our purchase of the house gave them the opportunity to buy a building better- suited to their needs and financial limitations, " said College ctiA Kinesiology junior Karin Allor. Once renovations began the contractors ran into several unanticipated structural problems in the house which were incompatible with some of the architect ' s original plans. Since 45 women had already signed leases to live in the house beginning in September, alternate housing plans were made until the house was completed. " Our national organization found us apartments at Um Towers to live in the first semester. We vi uld have much rat lived together in our own sorority house, but there was just no way that it could have been done on time, " stated LS A j unior Wendy Stampfly. The eventual move-in proved to be worth the wait for the sorority sisters. The reconstruction had been extensive, and the beautiful house barely resembled the nursery- school that it had been less than six months before. Finishing touches and final city inspections took place over the holiday break. Several beautifi- cation projects, such as landscaping and interior decorating, remained to be completed, but the women were just happy to finally have their home. Delta Zeta Chapter President Jenny Rifken, an LSA sopho- more, explained, " It was a really exciting time for us as we had worked towards this goal for such a long time. So many people, past and present active members of Delta Zeta, put their heart and soul into this pn vj ec t that the end result is twice as sweet. Our new home is beautiful, and we look forward to many happy memories there.

Every Homecoming Saturday the men of Sigma Alpha Epsilon played a game of mud football against their across-the-street rival- Phi Delta Theta. Also part of the tradition was the came that took place during the halftime between two sororities which played their own version of the game. Each year Sigma Alpha Epsilon ' s neighbors, Kappa Alpha Theta, looked forward to participating in the halftime game against a guest sorority. LSA senior Heather Hiatt explained, " I love the Mud Bowl. It ' s the highlight of the year. " The members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon selected the second sorority from a list of many houses wishing to participate in the traditional game. This year the men chose the women of Delta Delta Delta to challenge Kappa Alpha Theta. The women ' s contest had eleven players on the field at a time : or each team, was played with a volleyball instead of a football, and lasted fifteen minutes. The object of the game was simply to get the volleyball through the goal posts, which were held up in the end -ones by Sigma Alpha Epsilon pledges. The halftime contest was much less structured than the men ' s game. Manx women of Kappa Alpha Theta expressed concern about the lack ot rules and organization in the game. " This year I was disappointed at the fact that there were absolutely no rules. It was like a wrestling match. Usually it ' s not so bad, " declared LSA junior Hilary Staples. Cara Champion, an LSA sophomore, agreed that the game needed more structure and regulations, " I had fun. It was really competitive. There weren ' t any rules, so it was unfair for both sides. I think the game should be longer; it seems to be over as soon as it gets going. " When the games ended, both of the home teams had been defeated. Sigma Alpha Epsilon lost by one touchdown to Phi Delta Theta, and Kappa Alpha Theta fell to Delta Delta Delta by a score of 1-0. Still, the participating women of Kappa Alpha Theta had a great time. " Everyone was so excited for it because we had won the previous year. It ' s so much fun to play in the Mud Bowl because everyone comes to watch.

The intramural sports de- partment created special leagues for the Greek organization . Competition among Greeks for the league championships wa stiff, and Kappa Kappa Gamma was one of the leading contenders in the sorority league. In fact, at the c K e of the fall semester they were in second place, just behind the women of Delta Zeta. Kappa Kappa Gamma ' s high standing in the sorority polls was in large part due to their winning the championship in sorority football. After losing the previous year ' s championship game to Delta Zeta, the women of Kappa Kappa Gamma gained a measure of revenge against Delta Zeta. LSA junior LoriLefever explained, " It was a bigger win against Delta Zeta even though it wasn ' t the final game. It got nasty out there, and we were happy to win 12- 0. Then we defeated Delta Delta Delta in the final game by a score of 12 -6. " . Many exceptional athletes contributed to the football victo- ries and to the sorority ' s involvement in other sports. LSA sophomore Jill Malarney stated, " We have a lot of talented athletes in Kappa Kappa Gamma. We play softball, football, basketball, and volleyball. " Lori Lefever pointed out a couple of these athletes who helped Kappa Kappa Gamma win the football championship. " I have to thank our running back Eryn Weber. She is extremely fast and virtually un-catchable. She and I ran the option most times. I also threw the bomb a lot. If it weren ' t for our receiver Hadley Beck, who has such good hands, all this coverage would be unneces- sary, " declared Lori Lefever, the team ' s quarterback. Kappa Kappa Gamma players thanked their football coaches of Alpha Tau Omega for their help during the season. The offensive coach was Peter Kang, and the defensive coach was Larry Sexton. J ill Malarney said, " A big reason we won in football was the coaches. They made us memorize and run a set team through twenty-five different plays. " Lori Lefever also complimented the coaches, " They had us running all the time and working hard throughout the week.

From a distance you could see the awkward dress of people ap- proaching the house in cowboy boots, Stetson hats, jeans, and checkered flannel shirts. As you got closer to the house, you noticed the sound of a live band playing country western music, using harmonicas, vi olins, and guitars. Every winter term Sigma Phi Epsilon had a Country Western party. The party started fifteen years ago, patterned after the Mickey Gilley ' s bar in Texas. The fraternity tried to imitate the bar with the atmosphere of live music, country western attire, and an atmosphere conducive to feeling like one was in the South itself. Sigma Phi Epsilon took it a little further to add the buffalo wings during the party, and square-dancing to appease the hearty nature of the guests. The tradition was for the fraternity to ask the sorority to attend the function, and for the past ten years, Sigma Phi Epsilon NancyNowacek In his costume complete with a bandana around his necfc and a (liece of straw in his mouth, Puid f t E enjoys t ie rhu ' i ' stiTii at- mosphere. fraternity has asked Sigma Kappa to participate in many social functions with them.

" 1 love country music, and I ' m so excited about the Mickey Gillev party, " said LSA junior L awn Blauwkamp, a Sigma Kappa. However, not everyone had experience with the country style.

Then a Zeta Tau Alpha sister called the gentlemen to invite them to Dominick ' s and then to a mystery location afterward. However, the women of Zeta Tau Alpha did not mention to the men who their dates would be. The unusual invitation procedure gave some the courage to " crush " people whom they otherwise would not have invited. When the dates appeared at Dominick ' s, the women handcuffed the men and gave them half of a paper heart to match with their mystery date. Once the dates were paired, they ate dinner and enjoyed visiting with other couples. Some of the sisters shocked their current boyfriends by switching crush lists or hearts with friends. LSA sophomore Leigh Schultenover said, " I ' ve been seeing someone quite a while, but a friend and I switched dates. We went back after a hour. I think it ' s more embarrassing for the guys. It puts the a vulnerable position. " One of the men who had an unexpected date was Jeff Finklestein, an LSA sophomore and member of Pi Kappa Phi. Finklestein said, " I assumed Leigh was to be my date, but someone else was. It was interesting. At one point I was handcuffed to two different women, and the bartender looked at me like I was in big trouble or really lucky. Fortunately, I had my own set of handcuff keys on meJJ After dinner, buses took the couples from Dominick ' s to the Mainstreet Comedy Showcase. The women of Zeta Tau Alpha and their dates laughed with the crowd to round out a great evening. Zeta Tau Alpha was not the only house to host such parties. Crush parties were popular events in the Greek system. Both fraternities and sororities hosted these mystery date parties on an annual basis. Themes and activities varied among houses, but the basic invitation process was the same. Finklestein continued, " Our house had held a mystery date party before, but I think that the women of Zeta Tau Alpha threw the best one I ever attended.

Many chapters on the Univer- sity of Michigan campus were a part ot the Frater- nity Insurance Purchasing Group (F.I.P.G.). In- surance policies of the F.I.P.G. did not allow keg beer (or other alcohol) to be distributed by the fraternities. Because of pressure from the National Interfraternity Council, the Greek system w, i- forced to develop an alcohol policy for Greek houses on campus. Thus, a council consisting of both fraternity and xirority members got together and created a policy. A tew of the stipulations of the policy were a follows: no alcohol was to be served at open parties, sober monitors were required at all parties, no alcohol was to be served at parties larger than a two-way (one fraternity and one sorority), and alternative beverages had to be supplied, as well as phone numbers for taxi companies. Furthermore, all parties were required to be registered with a self-regulating committee, the SRC (Social Responsibilities Com- Greg Emmanuel At ;m .4 _! fiarty Karm AUor and Brendan Will- iams talk near the " brother keg. " Many fraternities kept kegs reserved for brothers only so that they could easily get beer and avoid the crowds at large, open parties. mittee), that went to all the parties and made sure that Greek houses followed the guidelines. The SRC was composed of two representatives from each participating fraternity and sorority. However, there were a few fraternities unaffected by this , for the policy contained a waiver clause. Any Greek house that did not have the F.I.P.G. policy could obtain a waiver from their national organization stating that they were allowed to serve alcohol at open parties. In this case, the alcohol policy did not affect that particular house. Alpha Delta Phi was one of the few houses that obtained a waiver. They were still allowed to serve alcohol at open parties, but they could not advertise that tact on invitations or rush fliers. Many Greeks expressed concern about the addition regulation of the Greek system. President Seth Halpem, an LSA senior, pointed out, " It seems like the Greek system has been limited more and more each year, with the banning of wet rush, the restrictions on open parties, and now the alcohol policy. It makes you wonder what ' s next. " B l Scott Simpson, an LSA junior agreed, " Rush numbers are down and the Greek system in general is on the decline. Part of this is due to the alcohol policy. ' ' It was undoubtedly inconve- H nient for party-goers who wanted to drink, to have to buy their own alcohol and carry it around with them all night. -Wendy Stampfly ALPHA DELTA PHI Front: Joe Fredal, Jason Wladischkin, Nadav Williams, Chip Fischer, Ryan Boeskool, Scott Simp-. n, Bailey (Joe), Boh Siegel.

The day was held once each semester to reinforce the importance ofbrotherhood to the mem ' bers. Listening to a speaker at Beta Pride Day is alum- nus Don DiPaolo. Ac- tive members and alumni took advantage of this day to address problems in the house and suggest possible solutions. Jay I 4 how Greg tinman 240 Greeks HONORING i BROTHERHOOD BETA THETA Pi CELEBRATES BETA PRIDE DAY Members of Beta Theta Pi got together each semester before fraternity rush for what was called Beta Pride Day, a special day devoted to recogniz- ing brotherhood in the house. Brothers spent the day bowling and playing paint ball. Then they returned to their house for a formal dinner and ceremony. Throughout the semesterpictures were taken and collected for a slide show that was shown with music after dinner. Finally, members held workshops to discuss problems in the house and how things could be improved. LSA junior Bill Huber said, " Even though we sometimes fight and can get carried away with prob- lems, we keep in mind that we are pretty special guys. Beta Pride gives us an opportunity to look with favor on our past and look to the future as proud graduates. " Beta Pride Day was founded a year and a half ago by alumnus President Bill Wake and house father and counselor in residence Don DiPaola. They created the event strictly for brothers only to BETA THETA PI (N,im nor available.) strengthen the house and make it more positive. Members agreed that the day was successful. " They [the brothers] feel about it the way I do. It ' s an exceptional day. Something that I ' m definitely going to miss is Beta Pride rectifying past wrongs. When I graduate I won ' t have that anymore, " explained Huber. Beta Pride Day brought present members of the fraternity together in brotherhood, but often times alumni also came to join in the day ' s activities. " It ' s a great chance for us new pledges to meet older alumni that had graduated by the time we became brothers. They can give us their perspective on the house, whether it has changed for the better or worse, and suggest helpful ideas, " stated Robi Mitra, an LSA junior. All of the time spent preparing for the day seemed worthwhile. LSA junior Chris Burk declared, " Sixty-five people living in a house can become tense. Beta Pride reinforces to everyone that we ' re not just a place to live, but we ' re a brotherhood. " After Beta Pride Day, brothers realized the strength of their brotherhood. School of Engineering sophomore John Bays commented, " Beta Pride is definitely a good thing for the house. The brotherhood was stronger than I had ever imagined. It felt really great to be a member of this fraternity after experiencing Beta Pride Day. " -Myrruz Jackson " THE BROTHER- HOOD WAS STRONGER THAN I HAD EVER IMAG- INED.

Once it had selected its pledge class, each fraternity had a special way of welcoming its new pledges. The pledges appreciated this welcoming as a first indication of the fraternity ' s brotherhood. Chi Psi fraternity member and LSA senior Joe Neemer said, " Friday, January 29 we held a celebration welcoming our eight new pledges from winter rush. " Many sororities and fraternities held carry-in parties to bring in their pledges. Chi Psi was one of the fraternities which had carry-in parties for their pledges. These parties began with sorority members physically carrying each pledge through the doorway into his new fraternity house. Natural Resources senior Sam Inohara described the party, " We invited the women of Alpha Delta Pi to line up Mixing punch, Jason Wright , Lmda Be chit , and Robin Rademacher pre- pare or the carry-in. cheer, and carry in our pledges. The party was semi-formal with a x-t bar and some beer. " As the pledges were carried through the doorway , each of them took a shot of Jagermeister. " Each pledge takes a shot to formally accept his bid into the fraternity. The rush chair chcxises the drink based on his own personal taste, bee ause he matches them shot for shot, " said LSA junior Rob Friedman. One by one Sam Inohara, who was the rush chair of Chi Psi, downed the shots of Jagermeister as he congratulated each pledge in line. When he finally completed the task, Inohara claimed, " This is an important duty I perform and enjoy. " The party required a great deal of planning. Members of Alpha Delta Pi and Chi Psi arrived early to prepare drinks, decorate, and plan the evening. LSA sophomore and Alpha Delta Pi sorority member JenTipton declared, " We planned the party in December. We spent a lot of time over there [at Chi Psi]. We also carried them in during the fall semester. " While fall rush brought fourteen pledges to the fraternity, the winter celebration welcomed eight pledges. These eight men were Jon Nash, Matt Bert, Tony Schmidtt, Jeff Robertson, Elliot Favus, Scott Ha:lett, Aaron Kessler, and Matt Schurter. -Justin Wright CHI PSI Front: Flip Danoski, Isamu Inohara, Marc D ' Annunrio, Dale ulog), Johnni Fitzpatrick, Arthur Chou, Stan Su, Matthew Hart.

These young men rushed the house and were given bids because they desired to uphold the four principles of the house - the s advancement of justice, the diffusion of liberal culture, the promotion of friendship, and the development of character. The brothers of Delta Upsilon always considered these four principles in everything they did. The formal pledging ceremony kicked off what was about to become one of the most successful pledge terms in Delta Upsilon history. Formal ceremonies were an important part of the tradition of many Greek organizations on campus, and the men of Delta Upsilon were no different. The pledging ceremony was an important time for both the new pledges and the active members. The presence of family, and friends, made the ceremony special for all involved. LSA junior Bucky Farrow said, " We pride ourselves on being a non-secretive fraternity. We encourage family and friends to attend the pledging ceremony so that they can learn what our fraternity is all about. Thus, the ceremony is appealing not only to the new pledges, but also to family and friends. " After pledging, the Delta Upsilon social year began. The jammed social calendar included the usual great friends parties, the Zeta Tau Alpha cruise-ship carry-in, the Halloween date party, and many other parties with sororities. The pledges were kept busy, as were the brothers, with social events including paint ball, whirlyball, a camping trip, and an intense mud war between the brothers and the pledges in the Arb. In addition to learning about the storied history of the frater- nity, the pledges became a close-knit group of friends through events including restoring the house ' s sun room, complete with a fooshall table, and re-tiling the back stairs. The eventful pledge term led by pledge educator Rudy Zauel came to a culmination at the initiation ceremony. All involved in the pledge term agreed that it was exciting and one of the most memorable. The men of Delta Upsilon were proud to call these eight men their brothers. -Bob Wolfard During the pledging cer- emony , Rudy Zauel speo cs to the fledge class while Luke Hollis listens.

The children spent three to four hours there eating, opening gifts from the fraternity brothers, and playing games. " It reminds me of when 1 was in camp. We played catch and Barbie dolls with them, and it was a good break from studying, " said Terry Woods, an Engineering School senior. This was the fourth year that FIJI hosted the party. One of the requirements of each pledge class was to participate in some kind of philanthropy event. It could be anything as long as it helped the community. Woods explained, " Matt Prevost and I started the party with Perry Nursery School when we were pledges our freshman year. The party has gotten positive responses from people in the house. Everyone loves to do it, so we have continued to host it. " The brothers of FIJI enjoyed watching the excited children play in their house. LSA sophomore E d Jakubs said, " We had great fun with the kids. They came in with smiles on and left with them. They were expecting to get milk and cookies, but we also played with them. " In order to make the party more personal for each child and to insure that no one was left out, each fraternity member was paired with one or two children. " That way we got to know them better. We were able to become closer with the children. It was like the little brother or sister I never had, " said Jakubs. LSA sophomore Adam Simonds also agreed that the party was fun for all. He stated, " It ' s great to have younger kids come over and see the glow on their faces when they get gifts from us. It ' s surprising to see how they act over a gift. They ' re always more excited than we think they ' re going to be. To them this is something great. " Perry Nursery School wasn ' t the only group of children that FIJI entertained throughout the year. FIJ I also held a holiday party for children in the terminally ill ward of Mott ' s Hospital. Most of the chi Idren had cancer, and the FIJ I pledge class tried to brighten their day by bringing them pizza and playing games with them on January 10, 1993. -Myrna Jackson PHI GAMMA DELTA Front: Robert Bloomquist, Mark Schwartz, David Spingarn, Craig Polin, Jason Riesel, Matt Grubba, Josh Hurand, Hamish Shah, Robert Warner.

This was one of the stops made by children exploring the haunted house. 248 Greeks HAUNTING THE HOUSE PHI KAPPA Psi AND ALPHA Xi DELTA DRESS TO SCARE On October 28, 1 992 the brothers of Phi Kappa Psi and the sisters of Alpha Xi Delta hosted their fourth annual haunted house, a philanthropy event provided for all children and youth groups spanning Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. The enthusiasm of the members of the Greek system combined with the children ' s participation made it an especially memo- rable evening. " It is definitely the children who make this event. Without them, there would be no way to get everyone to cooperate, " said Mike Naranjo, an LSA sophomore and co-philanthropy chair of Phi Kappa Psi. Indeed, there were many children to make the haunted house a success. Appn iximately sixty-five children came to tour the scary house. Most ot the children came from Peace Neighborhood Center, a youth group in Ann Arbor. Many other neighborhood children arrived with their parents throughout the night. Members of Phi Kappa Psi distributed fliers and hung posters toJ attract the crowd of children. LSA senior and Alpha Xi Delta ' s philanthropy chair Melanie Jiminez said, " It went pretty well. It ' s a really good thing for our two houses to be involved with area kids. " Before the haunted house opened, many children were patiently waiting outside the front door. When the door opened at 7:00 P.M., a stream ot smiling faces rushed through the entry way. For those children who were a bit apprehensive about the house, the women of Alpha Xi Delta provided plenty of candy and a variety of games. Sorority and the fraternity members dressed in their Halloween costumes and entertained the children who chose not to tour the house. There were also those brave enough to explore the house. Peace Neighborhood representatives, parents, and women of Alpha Xi Delta led those valiant ones down the creaky stairs to be greeted by darkness. Suddenly, lights flashed as a poor convict received death by guillotine. Thev walked right past this morbid sight and through an infinite walls i t hands. A psycho with hedge clippers was next to gleefully remind the vi iiingsters that there was more. Into a larger room they were led, where an electric chair claimed another victim to the right, and along the left children brushed past the dangling remains of hanging victims. Navigating the maze was almost as scary as the creatures which lurked around every 7 corner. A cadaver awoke from his slumber, jumping out of his coffin. A mad dentist armed with a power drill howled. Dead ends were easy to run into, and the smoke hindered children from seeing the path. A scientist screamed in delight as the children witnessed a lohoti my . The maze brought youths past a graveyard, but before several bodies jumped out of the tombs. Some children screamed as they headed for the exit, but most children enjoyed the trip so much that they went through it again. -Vincent Roldan in the " WCf basement, Russ Poaerfield and John Black put together some freaky potions and scary mixtures for the visiting children . Approximately 30 children toured the house. PHI KAPPA PSI Front: Timothy Berglund, Kurt Kowalski, David Duke, Brent Campbell, Greg Ekker, Felipe Paer, Jonathan Fish.

(People Under- standing the Severely Handicapped) America. The Scaffold Sit was a variation of the typical bucket drives conducted by many campus organizations to gather donations for various causes. The event lasted thirty-six hours, and each member of the fraternity ' participated in at least one two-hour shift. For each shift, there were usually two men sitting on a couch on top of a scaffold which the men of Pi Kappa Phi raised in the middle of the Diag. From their couch twenty feet above the ground, the men collected donations by raising and lowering buckets. Meanwhile, other fraternity brothers stood at the four corners of the Diag, encouraging the students passing by to donate to their philan- thropic event. P.U.S.H. started in 1977, and Pi Kappa Phi chapters across the hfor possible con- tributors u diking to class , firvcin h ' ndr jt;ki and Kevin Livingston stand on the PUSH scaffoldsetup on the diag. The annual driveraised$l200forthe severely handicapped. nation had raised over two million dollars for this organization. On many college campuses P.U.S.H. was known to emphasize direct service, volunteering, and education on behalf of America ' s citizen ' s with disabilities. In addition to serving as a philanthropic fund-raiser, the Scaffold Sit provided good public relations for the fraternity. According to Secretary Barry Stem, a Business School junior, " Not only did our chapter raise over $ 1 200, but we increased our visibility on campus and awareness of our involvement with children having disabilities. " However, Pi Kappa Phi did not stop raising money when theu Scaffold Sit had ended. They also organized a " Skip-a-Meal " event in the dorms. In January, there were three days in which the brothers of Pi Kappa Phi sat outside of dormitory cafeterias, asking residents to skip one of their meals on Thursday, March 1 1 . For each meal skipped, the University donated $ 1 .80 of the cost of the meal to Pi Kappa Phi, who in turn gave the money once again to their philanthropy P.U.S.H. The meal skip was extremely successful. Nearly 3000 dorm residents agreed to skip a meal, which raised approximately $5300 for P.U.S.H. " We were fortunate that so mam people were willing to give up a ' delicious and nutritious ' dorm meal for such a good cause, " said David Jaffe, Pi Kappa Phi Treasurer and Business School junior. -Karin Attar PI KAPPA PHI Front: Richard Drake, Michael Petncci.

Don ' t worry about the tab for those drinks they ' re on the house. Moving In After carrying the twentieth box of useless junk up the two flights of stairs to my new apartment, I collapsed like a lump on my matress. And I felt like a lump, too a testament to my horrible physical condition. I was sweating like a madman, but I didn ' t care. My senior year could now officially begin. I started to unpack chia pets first. After hours of relentless organizing of the bookshelf (which is better alphabetical order, or by favorite author?), arranging extra pens, paper, and other supplies in a ready-accessible place, and hanging my posters, I decided to watch some television and relax with a much-de- served beer. My roommate, Tom, who had moved in a week earlier, was watching The Brady Bunch, and hadn ' t lifted a finger to help me move in. " College, " he said, " is a chance to prepare for the real world. There won ' t always be someone there to help you carry boxes. " I agreed and even let him have a beer. We toasted to our apartment. " This location is perfect, " I said to Tom and a muted Greg Brady. " Five minutes from Angell Hall, and what a view! Check out that Burton Tower! " As if in answer, the Tower rang five o ' clock, the bell resounding in the living room. " Even if it is a bit annoying. No matter. I ' m here, and I ' m a senior. " I got up for another beer, but Tom ' s leg was in the way. I said, " Look out, look out higher primate coming through! " I got the beers and while I was drinking mine, I worried about falling into a rut similar to last year ' s: television, bars, beer, sleep. I finally resolved myself to a brave, new term, one filled with many manhours of study and thoughtful reflection on progressive issues. I began by making a schedule for the semester in my head. It included an hour of exercise daily, visits to professors ' office hours, and nights at the li- brary. And it would have worked to if I hadn ' t remembered that Nick-at-Nite would take up too much of my time and that I abhorred exercise. I decided to make a toast to a senior year filled with procrastination, bar-hops, and television marathons. Cheers!

I picked out the least-smelly outfit from the pile of clothes that had been building up on my floor for the past two weeks. I looked in the mirror after dressing and noticed a rather grim figure staring back. He had the couch- potato ' s slouch, and was uncombed, unshaven, and unironed. In short, he was a mess. I smiled at him and he, like most reflections, mimicked me. I got my books together for another typical day of classes and poor Michigan weather, and thought as I walked out the door to class, When do I graduate?! My first class, Ice Ages And You, was so unusually boring that I was forced to do the cross- word three times. After that, there was still time to kill, so I had no recourse but to continue my sleep while the professor droned on. I had a strange dream that included a stegosaurus, a catcher ' s mitt, and my Aunt Martha. I awoke in a cold sweat and noticed that I was the only one left in the classroom. After my classes were done (somehow they seemed all the same go figure) , I walked home in the rain groggy from too much sleep, and almost got run over by the commuter bus. Instead, it splashed muddy water on me. I wasn ' t upset, though, because a sudden hun- ger enveloped my person. I knew only one thing would cure it Jeno ' s Pizza Rolls. I rushed home, cooked them expertly, and sat down to watch television. I had entered a black hole of no escape. The television vacuum began with The Brady Bunch, and be followed by hours of meaningless sitcoms and MTV videos. Then it was Cheers and Seinfeld, a few hours of Nick-at-Nite, and a late-night presentation of Caddyshac c. I decided that homework wasn ' t a viable option, and sat back like I had so many times before to enjoy some tube. I was indeed a perfect picture resting quite comfort- ably on the couch, eyes glued to the Greg-as- the-new-Johnny-Bravo episode, and pizza roll upon pizza roll on a plate within arm ' s reach. I sighed contentedly and said, " University life you can ' t beat it with a stick.

" Oh, hi, Paula, " I said, in my thick Midwest dialect. " 1 didn ' t know you worked here. I didn ' t recognize you. " Paula and I went way back. We had met two weeks before in one of those stupid " Let ' s break into twos, and discuss what you ' ve read " events that happen periodically in ambitious discussion sections. We had a hatred of Milton in common. Paula said, dryly, " What do you want again, Joe? " " Gimme a double mocha and one a those cookies. " Sometimes it ' s better to order like a normal American. I received my goods, and went to the back of the cafe. I was in some serious territory. Me, a coffeehouse novice, infiltrating the smoke- filled hangout of the cafe addicts?! Shame! 1 found a table, between a man dressed in black drinking espresso and reading Kafka, and a couple dressed in black discussing the rise of the bourgeoisie in the New America. I brought out my Nietzche, and sipped the mocha like a good Englishman. The cookie was good; I found it tasted best dipped in the mocha. I got a few stares for that, however. Obviously a cafe taboo. A skinny man with a goatee Maynard G. Krebs? suddenly appeared at my table, al- mond milk in hand. " You are readingNietzche, " he stated, motioning to my book. " No, you are, " I said. He didn ' t get it. I have won this round, my skinny friend. En garde! Maynard G. Krebs fired again. " What do you think of him? I must know! " He looked pained; he must really need to know, I thought, (continued on page 264) What thoughts are written on the pages of that notebook?

" I never discuss Nietzche, or eat spinach, with a stranger. " He winced. " Oh, you taunt me! " he yelled, and walked away mumbling some- thing about me not being able to touch his monkey. My loss, I guess, but I had won the war. The war of the coffee house. Feeling entirely confident, I drained my double mocha, and got ready to leave. I had a sudden realization that, having beaten one of " them, " I could now blend into this blessed plot, this Cafe Royale. I stood up, and a gleam of light from an unknown source shrouded my person. The cafe rats rose to their feet and applauded, then surrounded me to give hugs. I felt so loved! I heard a call for " speech! " I cleared my throat and said: " No applause please, just throw Monets. " Pause for laughter. " I don ' t know what to say. I ' ve always, always wanted this. " A tear for effect. " I ' ve wanted this ever since I was a little child ! " I had taken speech class, and new how to play to a crowd. They were putty. I raised my cookie. " This emphatically takes the biscuit! " The Maynard G. Krebs look-alike stepped forward, and shook my hand. He said, " Congratulations. You are tall and angular, and I would very much like it if you would sip my mocha. " He held for- ward his almond milk. I obliged, and it was better than good; it was like wine. Maynard looked around at his peers, and said doggedly, " Now there is a little man- ner of house dues. " " What ? " I asked. Nothing could spoil my high. " Dues, " he continued. " You must pay the dues. " " How much? " I asked. My high was spoiling. " We ask nothing less than your com- plete knowledge. We want your brain! " I was astounded. What had been a tribute had turned sour. Everybody wants something. I spoke to Goatee. " You ' ll have nothing and like it! " He crumbled like it was a blow to the face, and the party broke up. I turned to leave, thinking, I bow to no one. I left with a smile on my face, passing on my way out the innocents in the front of the shop. " Drink up, friends, " I said to all and no one. " Coffee is the spice of life. " Js it a deli! Is it a cafe? Who cares ' . what the ' . that in the window? A flying CD!

No Jeno ' s Pizza Rolls... Damn! How- ever, I brought some coupons to take advan- tage of Double Coupons, and, of course, I had a keen eye for bargains. Comparison shopping as only a poor college student can do it. My cart was reasonably full after getting all the items on my list (except the pizza rolls), and throwing in a half gallon of moo- juice, I went to the checkout. I was proud to place my products on the thing. that looks like a conveyor belt (I ' m sure there ' s got to be a name for that thing the food mover? the grocery belt?) I, of course, was very curt to the friendly cashier if I don ' t get my Jeno ' s Pizza Rolls, somebody ' s gonna pay! After ringing it all through, the cashier informed me that the bill was $18.02. Too rich for my blood! I told her to take off the bananas, the bread, three of the ramens, and one of the burritos. " 16.50, " she said. I looked her straight in the eye and said, " If 1 have to put back anything else, I won ' t make the week ! " She was unsympathetic, so I had to sacrifice my spaghetti, sauce, and cheese. There was no way I was going to go out of there without those snack cakes! I drove home, happy with my purchase, but a bit disgusted with the whole notion of grocery shopping. My anger abated, however, as 1 thought that soon I would be curling up in front of Seinfeld with my snack cakes and Faygo. There ' s nothing better.

His main dish, besides his girl- friend, is chicken stir-fry, and he can saute on- ions like nobody ' s business. Tom gets so into cooking that I find it impossible to live with him. This, of course, comes from someone who can ' t even boil water, so maybe it ' s my problem. But I don ' t think so. I always argue, while he ' s making potato pancakes or something, that it isn ' t worth it. I mean, it takes Tom about an hour, and often more, to fix one of his self- proclaimed gourmet meals, and he downs it in about ten minutes. That, to me, a gourmet of canned foods, is a waste of time. I can make a bowl of SpaghettiO ' s in two minutes flat, or just let a frozen pizza warm itself for a few, while I take in a good Brady Bunch or Quantum Leap re-run. Nevermind that my hair is falling out and my gums are beginning to bleed at the slightest touch. Cooking ' s a waste of time, I tell you! Nevermind that I ' ll p robably die an artery-clogged death, or my heart will explode from saturated fats. A college student ' s got to eat on the run (or at least while catching a very important televi- sion sitcom), or so I was told. And as my old fencing coach said advice which Tom obvi- ously missed out on " If you live by the sword, you ' ll die by the sword. " That ' s my credo or in this case, if you live by SpaghettiO ' s, you ' ll die by SpaghettiO ' s. Rather than spend hours cooking, students could go to The Fleetuiood Diner and have a plateful of that.

After the three hour wait in line, it was finally my turn to vote. As I stepped forward to the booth, I thought about the 1988 vote, and how confused I had been then a virgin voter trying to grapple with the levers and dials just to cast a vote that I wasn ' t even sure would be counted. But in 1992, 1 felt more secure with my voting self, and wasn ' t nervous at all when I stepped into the booth. However, I noticed that I only had three minutes to make my choices, and that the machine was a completely different animal than the one I had tangled with back in 1988. I looked around nervously, wondering where the cord was to pull the curtain shut, but there wasn ' t one. Against better judgment, I yanked on the curtain, hoping to draw it shut manu- ally. However, the force with which I yanked made the curtain come off its track, and the whole thing came down over me. We, the curtain and I, fell to the floor in a tangled mass of flesh and vinyl. The line of voters-in- waiting erupted in laughter, and I, perfectly embarrassed, stood up, red-faced. An election attendant came over and tried to get the cur- tain back up, but it wouldn ' t budge. She asked me, " Can ' t you read instructions? They ' re printed right there, next to the lever that pulls this curtain shut. " I said, " So they are. Silly me. Do I still get to vote? " She just looked at me, and before she said anything, I imagined her saying to her husband over dinner, " There was this real idiot at the booths trying to shut the curtain, but he was so stupid that he pulled the whole curtain down on top of him! He was such a complete boob that he was barred from voting, and why should he get to vote? He probably would have voted for Perot anyway, so I guess there ' s no loss. " Reluctantly, the attendant showed me to another booth and demonstrated the facilities to me as though I were a pre-schooler. I was all set to vote. I went about my business carefully, but all the time I was wondering how long it would take to count all the votes. And how did I really know my vote would be counted ? I was starting to get depressed about the entire democracy thing when the attendant told me my time was up. I panicked. I hadn ' t voted for the good stuff yet, only the proposals. I was doomed! In a rush, I arbitrarily pulled levers left and right, and I think I voted for the Bull Moose party straight-ticket. As I left the building, I hung my head in shame for being such a complete nincompoop, and I couldn ' t help but wonder if this kind of stuff happened to anyone else. I came to the conclusion that it did, and went home to watch how many votes came in for the Bull Moose.

" Traying the Arb Up to our eyeballs in fresh snow, we stood atop the big hill in the Arb with our trays in hand. It was the first big snow of the year, and Cathy, Sally, and I meant to capitalize on it. We had liberated the trays from the Markley cafeteria, and they were quite slick because of the ski-wax I had brought. " I ' ll go first, " Sally said. " Try not to hit that tree down there. It looks as hard as a rock. " Sally got on her tray and surveyed the hill. She took a little while to get situated and then waited some more. I decided she needed speed on her first run, so I gave her a long running push. She screamed, but I figured it was because she was going so fast. Fast is fun in my book. Fortunately, she missed that tree, though she had to swerve. " Good steering, " I yelled to her as she reached the bottom. Sally turned and shook her fist at me. Cathy wanted to try next, but I suggested building a jump. " Back in grade school, Stinky Mulligan and I used to build these killer jumps and then put water on them so they ' d ice. We could have been in the sledding Olympics, too, if Stinky hadn ' t broken his arm. " " No j umps ! " Cathy protested. " And no pushes. Go stand over there, " she suggested and pointed towards Cleveland. Cathy was taking her sweet time to get ready also, so I started throwing snowballs at her to make her go. I pelted her in the back, and she pushed off quickly to avoid any more. She, too, narrowly avoided the killer tree, wiping out in the process of evasion. " Watch those turns, " I yelled. " They can be tough. " Cathy looked up at me. Her face was covered with snow, and she looked miserable. She also looked upset, which I couldn ' t under- stand. I love to wipe out it ' s part of the game. I got ready to go on my trip down the hill. It looked like a good ride, except that tree. Cathy and Sally were talking near it, and acting as wards, in case 1 should lose my steer- ing. They are so thoughtful, I thought. I was set. I pushed off hard and as I was coming towards the tree, Cathy and Sally sprung to life. They stood in my way, blocking the path.

I opted for the latter to ram them. CRASH! When I woke up, I was looking straight up at the sky. I heard laughing, but I couldn ' t move my head to see who it was. I also couldn ' t move my arms or legs. " Help! " I screamed. " I can ' t move ! " More general laughter came from above me. Then Sally and Cathy moved in to my line of sight, and put snow on my face. " Hey, what gives! ? " I spat. I realized that I was completely encased in snow, and was now the unwitting captive of my two friends. " Oh, you big baby, " Cathy said. " Say ' uncle ' and we ' ll let you go. " " Never! " I said, and got a mouthful of snow in return. " You fiends! " " Say it! Say it! " " Not a chance! " I received another face- washing, and Sally tweeked my nose. " Stop, I say. Stop! " " Say ' uncle ' and we ' ll stop. " " Anything! " I said. " Uncle, uncle, uncle. There! Now quit it. " I heard them walking up the hill, laughing, as I lay immobile in my snow prison. I screamed, " Hey, dig me out! Help! " They kept going, and soon at least the laughter couldn ' t be heard. At least it ' s warm, I thought. Actually, it ' s kind of comfortable. I ' ll just have to wait for the spring thaw. Six months isn ' t that long. I just hope no one comes along and thinks I ' m a big jump.

My roommate, Tom, stopped me and said, " Hey, Joe, it ' s 9 p.m. Are you going to Scorekeepers with us? " " No, " I said. " I have two five-page papers due tomorrow and I haven ' t started them yet. " " Fool! What were you doing? " " Well, first there was Brady Bunch at four- thirty and then I had to take a nap. After that, I couldn ' t leave because Jeopardy was on, and then Quantum Leap. " Tom sighed. " What about last night? " " Last night? Oh, you know, it was Monday night Fresh Prince and Blossom were on, and I got sucked into Murphy Brown and Northern Exposure... " On the way to the Angell Hall Computing Center, I began composing one of the two papers, and was ready to start when I walked in the door of Mason Hall. Looking down the hall to the computer room, however, I saw the tell- tale signs of a long waitlist bodies strewn on the hall floor in various states, some reading, some talking, some snoring. I went up to the desk and took number 751, and asked the clerk what it was up to. She said joyfully, " Number 653. " I said, " That ' s over 100 numbers away! " " Actually it ' s 98. Enjoy. " ' . growled and went to find a perch in the hall. I joined the other unfortunate souls waiting for computers. I picked up a paper lying on the ground and proceeded to do the crossword. Hmmm. Five-letter word for college paper. D-A-I-L-Y? No, that doesn ' t fit. E-S-S-A-Y. " Macintosh numbers 675 through 691. " Four-letter word for portent? Hmmm. O-M- E-N. " Macintosh numbers 691 through 720. " I heard someone else say that they opened one of the classrooms. I hated working in those, because they were as hot and loud as a weightroom, and almost as smelly. I needed the open arena of the fishbowl. I have fold-outs and books and what I need is space, I thought. I looked at my watch. It was going on eleven. Three-letter word for average grade? C-E-E. Well, that ' s it for the crossword. I put down the paper and looked around at the lifeless bodies. It was like I was in the dentist ' s office, waiting to get my tooth pulled. I could hear the voice now, calling out my doom " Joey Student! Time to see the den- tist! " " Macintosh numbers 750, 51, 52... " I got up and went toward the voice, ready to have something else extracted from my head, hoping that this time what came out would fill up ten pages rather than just a spit cup. And that it would be quick and painless. Then I came back to reality and walked down into the pit of computers.

Communication Graduates 281 As always happens while I ' m writing a paper at Angell Hall, I had to go to the bath- room. I wasn ' t altogether pleased about having to use the public facilities, but due to my En- glish professor ' s silly need to create problems for her students, I was forced to. I got up furtively from my computer, and went in search of the best bathroom to use. " I ' ll be darned, " I thought, " if I ' m going to use the one on the first floor. I hate commotion. " So I decided to go up to the third floor at Haven to get away from the crowd. After I got settled in the stall, I cursed myself for bringing nothing to read. However, there was a newspaper on the floor. I wasn ' t in the greatest mood for having to use a public bathroom, and even though I had forgotten my book, The Mezzanine, which was turning out to be a good read, I ' d be double-darned if I was going to touch that newspaper that was just left there by god-knows-who with my bare hands. I tried to position the paper with my feet, but I could only get it upside-down, and I got so sick of looking at Dan Quayle ' s upside-down head (he looks even more like a peanut) that I kicked the paper under the stall out of sight. Just then, the door opened. I always hate when people disturb me on the throne, but this was even worse because this was a public bath- room and there was only one other stall in the place. That meant that he (I sure hoped it was a he) had to be in the stall right next to me, as opposed to the optimum every other stall place- ment. This trip to the bathroom was really turning out to be a big mistake after all, I thought. I decided to get out as quickly as I could, and I finished up my business. However, a few minutes after my unknown neighbor had gotten settled, a rolled-up piece of toilet paper whistled under my side of the stall. It was too tiny to be functional, so I assumed it was a note. I was outraged. Not only is a bathroom not a place for conversation, it certainly isn ' t a place for correspondence. I wanted to see just how outraged to be, so I picked up the wadded-up note. It read: " Please! I know this sounds weird, but can I please lick your boots? Tap foot twice for yes. " That was too much for me, so I abbreviated my stay even further and got out of there without a word. Stunned, I walked back to the computing center, wondering what kind of sicko that guy must have been. Then I began to worry that the people at the computers neighboring mine might be wondering, " Where is that guy, and why has he been gone so long, anyway ?! He left his coat, so he must have gone to the bathroom. He ' s been gone fifteen minutes! Is he some kind of nut to be in the bathroom that long?! I ' m changing computers! " So I rushed as fast as I could to get back, and took a big loop back to my computer to make it look like I had only been talking to someone else at the computing center. I think I fooled everyone, but I ' m not absolutely sure. Quit stalling! Get it! Actually, toilets such as these are often a haven for avid readers who needed a break from the stress of writing papers .

BONG! Every fifteen minutes the clock ' s infernal bell rang. If you ever want to know what time it is, call me. I always know. Anyhow, this time I was especially upset about it. I had been writing a paper and studying for exams all day and I was bushed. The day seemed to have lasted longer than a Statistics 402 lecture. I needed sleep, but the bells! The tintinabulation of the bells! Of the bells! I needed an aspirin. I knew it was 2 A.M by the ringing. For some strange reason it had been ringing after midnight for the past week. Usually it stops at twelve. Was it a malfunction? Who rang those bells, anyway? Quasimodo? Did they have to ring at 2 A.M ? I hopped out of bed, determined to put an end to the ringing. Sure, the bells had stopped for now, but what about at 2:15? And 2:30? It rang 2:15. With a yell, I threw on my clothes and ran out the door. I ' ll show you, bells, whoever you are! I was foaming at the mouth, a man possessed with the destruction of the bells. Maybe it was because I had gone to Taco Bell for dinner. Maybe it was because Meijer had been out of Jeno ' s Pizza Rolls. I don ' t know, but I definitely wanted blood. Kill the bells! I got to Burton Tower and shook my fist at the clock. Just then, it struck the first few notes of that annoying song, signalling that it was 2:30. The horror! I ran to the door and beat on it with my fists. The door wouldn ' t budge. I yelled, " Don ' t cower, Tower. Open up! " Then, I remembered the handle. It opened. I rushed up the stairs, bent on destruction. (Isn ' t this silly?) I was spitting mad. I lost a lot of the spit, however, on my way up the stairs. There were definitely more than 39 steps! When I finally reached the top of the stairs, I looked around. There was a man(?) hunched over something, sitting in the corner. I said, " Stop those infernal bells! " but it wasn ' t very convincing; you try sounding tough after running up that many steps! The man turned around, and I fell backwards with surprise. I said, " James Earl Jones!? What are you doing here?

Every night they have a different U of M grad to ring the bells. " " Why don ' t the students know about this? " I asked, just happy to be anywhere near the super- actor. " It ' s a clause, man! " He looked at his watch quickly, just in time to ring the 2:45 part of the song. It wasn ' t so annoying, watching James Earl Jones do it. I asked him, " Who else has done this? I ' ll leave if you tell me. " " Okay, but only if you leave. Gerald Ford did it Monday, and was going to do it tonight also. But he fell down the steps last time, so I ' m filling in for him. We ' ve also had Madonna, I think " Madonna? She ' s not a graduate! " I said. " I did hear, however, that she lived in East Quad for two years and then dropped out. " " Well, she rang the bells. Now get out, before I throw you out. " I said, " Only if you do Darth Vader. " He sighed. " How ' bout, This is CNN ' ? " He moved towards me. " Or maybe that speech from Field of Dreams? You know the one at the end ' People will come, Ray. People will most definitely come. ' You know! " He stood over me, breathing deeply. " I guess I ' d better go. See you, James. Keep up the good work. It ' s almost 3:00. " I ran down the stairs, but yelled up, " And may the force be with you. Always. " Outside, I felt wide awake. The bell tolled 3:00, and I said, " Hey Burton Tower, you ' re not bad. " The sound of the bell was sweet, and I walked home thinking, " I ' ll never wash these ears again.

Form of: A Form Letter! Dear friends, etc ... How are you? How are your bunions? I ' m riding high on egg nog. You could say that I ' m foaming at the mouth, but you ' d be wrong. I just opened my Christmas presents. Verdict: Santa is dead, replaced by Duderstadt the Grinch. In my stocking, I got yer blank tapes, yer batteries, yer knick-knacks, and, of course, yer orange to make the toe. I also got yer usual package of too-small underwear and yer McDonald ' s gift certificates. Unfortunately, no coin and no quarter. None asked, none received. But I did get those Streisand tapes I ' ve been craving, as well as the gift that keeps on giving a membership in the Jelly-of-the- Month club (1st month rhubarb). My fa- vorite present was the Thighmaster thanks Mom. Second place was the package of new socks my old ones were rank ! I don ' t shower much. But I deserved so much more I was quite the student fall term. I was the little drummer boy of students. I lassoed that ' A ' and hog-tied it real nice-like. If I estimate correctly, I should have a grade point the size of Texas. Call me a bleeding savant, but if useless knowledge were marketable, my ugly mug would soon be gracing Mt. Rushmore, putting shame to the word " chisel. " But keep that under lock and key until I announce my presidential candidacy. One more term and then I graduate. Am I supposed to be excited? I ' ve decided to become a mime. It takes rigorous training, but the benefits are innumerable. There ' s the face painting, for one. Plus, everyone loves a mime. But what about the pay, you worry? Well, I ' ve also decided on marketing my brainchild urinal cakes in the shapes of things: airplanes for airports, school insignia for universities, animals for zoos, and so on. They ' re fun and functional. It ' s a mug ' s game and I ' m going to play by the rules. This letter grows tiresome. Watch those freeways. Get a piece of the rock, and choke on it.

It would be the last time I would ever buy books for classes at the University of Michigan, because I, Joe Student, was finally graduating after a long, arduous descent into higher knowledge. Books were both the symbols and the means of that ultimate goal of graduation, and this made me almost weep as I, like a squirrel on the prowl for nuts, went around the store searching for the necessary texts. But even though there was the foul air of nostalgia clouding my vision, I was still a smart shopper, and would not be charged even a nickel more than the lowest possible price. I had already been comparison shopping at Ulrich ' s and the Union Bookstore, and had mentally prepared myself for the proper pur- chases there. The final stop on my hunt was MBS and I found some surprising things when I looked at their prices. They were consistently a nickel to a quarter under the price of the other two. It was amazing to me that there was such a disparity between the book stores in the area, and I meant to capitalize on it! I corralled my purchases into a basket and strolled to the checkout, not worrying about the mile-long line nor the great amount of money I would soon be doling out to the usurious network of book distributors. I was whistling my version of the Go-Go ' s " Vacation, " and was very proud to be such a shrewd book-buyer. After the long wait (which I also passed by humming a selection of Fat Albert songs) my total savings were $1.35. I patted myself on the back and went next door to State Discount to reward myself with some Laffy-Taffy and a Coke. My last book-buying excursion had been a success! Meanwhile, across the street from Michigan Book Supply: " Now here ' s a guy who looks like hell He ' s got a big nose and he really smells He wears buckskin shirts or cowboy hats But he ' ll throw me a coin " cause he ' s all that.

Halfway through the buttons on my shirt, I decided to chuck it and skip the class, consoling myself that I could then take a shower and get myself pretty for my ten o ' clock. So I went to take a shower and after that had my usual pop-tart breakfast. I made the mistake of turning on the television and sat down to watch Three ' s Company at 9:30. (It was a good one, too Jack won some money, and instead of using it on rent he bought a really obnoxious leather coat, which made Janet and Chrissy especially angry.) During it, I got everything ready to go to my classes for the day my 10:00, 1 1:30, and 2:00 and relaxed during the denouement of the show. Unfortunately, I didn ' t know that after- wards, TNT was playing three straight Gary Grant movies, which I couldn ' t be asked to miss. My professors would understand. I would if I were in their shoes. So I was hooked I would not be going out that day. I was ex- empted from my schedule courtesy of Mr. Grant. My classes could do their best to function without me. I got everything ready for a long day of television bliss potato chips, Faygo, blankets, pillows and yelled, " Roll film! " Hey , Booger!

Utterly depressed, I debated with myself in the mirror. " I could become a monk, " I said to my reflection. " I ' ve always wanted to shave my head, and the robes are pretty stylish. No, it won ' t work I can ' t be silent for a minute, let alone a lifetime. How about a drifter? These vagabond shoes are longing to roam. Chicago, St. Louis, Tulsa. I can just see myself dying in Oklahoma what would Mother say? No, that won ' t work either I don ' t have a hitch-hiker ' s thumb. Construction work? Fast food? Politics? No, no, no! Oh, for an inheritance! Then I could sleep for the next forty years like Rip VanWinkle and have all my bills paid. And there ' s always those letters with Ed McMahon ' s fat head on it. I could be a winner, too! But no. I couldn ' t win a one- man 100m walk-race. I also can ' t fight my way out of a wet paper sack, so getting in the ring with George Foreman for a cool million is out. " What can I do ? Maybe I ' ll get a job I still have some interviews left. Maybe I ' ll apply to grad school. Isn ' t that what you ' re supposed to do if you can ' t find a job after graduation? I can ' t, though. I couldn ' t bear to be in school after so long now. I think I ' m going crazy! Nutso. I need an aspirin. " Just then, the phone rang. " Hello, " I said. " Yes, this is Mr. Student... Uh-huh, I ' m willing to relocate to Tulsa. . . You say that I have a second interview? That ' s great. When? Where? What do I wear? " I hung up and ran around the room excitedly. " Oklahoma, Oklahoma, Okla- homa! Annie, get your gun we ' re going to be Sooners! Dustbowls, I love " em! " Second interviews are pretty exciting, I thought. I can ' t wait to get flown down there to see the firm. I ' m going to Tulsa! Yee-ha! Sure, all my friends are going to New York, Chicago, Boston but how bad can Oklahoma be ? Should I wear a cowboy hat to the interview? I ' ll be sure to get the job then. Yes siree!

In the dream, which I have had four times since being rejected by an East Coast employer, I had to work the biggest rush hour for hamburger traffic ever recorded, and the customers were successful fellow alumni of Michigan, and various people from my past, such as former employers and teachers. The big problem with the dream (besides the grim reminder that if you fail to plan even simple things like your future, you plan to fail) was that as I did my duties as burger man, instead of saying, " Welcome to McDonald ' s can I take your order? " 1 had to say, " I ' m a graduate of U of M and I ' m working at McDonald ' s can I take your order? " and everyone told me what a wonderful boy I was, or stuff like that, and how did I end up working in a place like this anyway, and yes, I ' ll have a hamburger. My boss would always appear at my shoulder and say, " You ' re a bad apple, Joe. I knew that when I gave you a ' C ' in class that you ' d amount to this. Now look lively, sonny, and take this C.E.O. ' s order! You no good mug! " And every now and then Stinky or Ralph would stick their pimply, braced-teeth face in my line of sight and yell, " C ' mon, man! We need more burgers! We need more burgers! You used to be so smart in high school, man, but now you can ' t even make enough burgers! What ' s wrong with you ?

My co-workers, of course, were still Stinky Mulligan and Ralph Nibblet. I was also now on fries instead of burgers, but the gist of it was the same. So far, every time I ' ve had the dream, I ' ve woken up just as I collapse and fall face-first into the french fry broiler after Stinky and Ralph demand 100 orders of large fries. Tonight, however, the ending was different. I field the order with superb grace and agility, and even smile about it. As I am being yelled at to speed up by my grandfather and Stinky and Ralph, the customers my relatives cheer me on, chanting, " Joe! Joe! Joe! " and then a phone rings somewhere, and it ' s for me, and it ' s the president of the East Coast company and he says, " Joe, we ' ve taken keen interest in the work you ' re doing there, and you ' ve shown that you are more than just an average fry man. If you can be as diligent as that in our company, you ' ve got yourself a job. " I am completely overwhelmed, and in- stead of accepting, I drop the phone into the fry vat, and faint. When I wake up in the dream, I find that 1 was only dreaming about dream- ing, and I walk into an office and a secretary says, " Good morning, Mr. Stu- dent. Did you sleep well? " I smile and say, " I had some troubling dreams, but nothing that a hard day ' s work can ' t cure, right? " She nods, and then starts to speak, but all that comes out is a long, high-pitched, annoying squeak. In fright, I try to run into my office to escape the awful noise. I awake to the terrible sound of my alarm, and I know that it ' s 8 A.M. and that I have to go to class. Recalling what went on in my dream, I try to find a moral in all of it. I get up to turn off the alarm, and know that I am closer to the McDonald ' s job than a corporate one. (Editor ' s note: There really was no moral in the dream. I was only trying to take up some space with a trite little story, and I guess one could find a moral in that, such as: Give someone a blank page and he or she can fill it with any old rubbish. Go figure.)

' " CCRB For Me One afternoon, after seeing a Soloflex commercial on television, I decided to go to the CCRB. Filled with a sudden determina- tion to shape up or ship out, I donned my unused sweats and white tennis shoes and broke like the wind out of my door. I ran quickly to the CCRB, breathing cleanly through my nose. Before I reached the corner, however, I was out of breath and panting heavily. Better wait until I get there to exercise, I thought and screeched to a walk. I casually strolled on my way, and thought, I really must get myself in shape this time. No more wimpy chips! Carpe diem! As I thought this, an elderly couple jogged by me and yelled, " Get off the road, Sunday driver! " With my new weightlifter ' s mentality in hand, I pitched back, " Go eat some prunes! " and let off with the international sign for !@ ! I got to the building and, after getting by the gargoyle checking i.d. ' s, I braved the steps and made my way towards the free-weight room where the heavies roam. However, as I was walking by the ping-pong table, a fat man with a paddle said, " D ' ya wanna play, man? " I couldn ' t turn him down he looked so smug standing there, an- gry paddle in hand, just daring me to whip his behind. He was mine! " Sure, I ' ll play, " I said, poker-faced. Little did he know that I was the Golden Paddle winner of 1988 back home in Small Falls, Michigan. I knew all the spins. I picked up my paddle, and we began to volley. I let him have the serve to show him that I wasn ' t afraid. With a grim nod he started, and to my surprise, the fat guy could serve! It twisted around my paddle in a crazy curve and found the floor. I had lost the first point!

I always draw first blood, always! I turned out that we were evenly matched, ex- changing wicked spins and defiant glares at each other in rapid-fire succession. 1 thought, Oh, you ' re good, my friend, very good. But I am Pong, champion of the paddle! Begone! And it went on in that fashion, until it reached match point and I had the edge, 20-19. Now we ' re play ing some cards, boy! The ball was in my court. He had the serve, but I had the advantage; he had used up bag of tricks and I knew his game. He was putty. Before he served, I took time out to make him nervous. We were both drenched in sweat. What a workout!, I thought. Adrenaline was coursing through my veins. You could just feel the energy. With a nod, I signalled that he could serve. As he wound up, I yelled, " Your shoes are untied! " and pointed. He was fished in; he looked down, losing sight of the ball. He shanked it ! He shanked it! He fumed, of course, calling me a cheat, but I didn ' t care. I had won. Call me a gloat, but I was victorious. I ' m no loser, I thought. I ' m a first-round draft choice in the 1993 ping-pong selection. I ' m going pro. That over with, I decided not to hit the weights after all. Besides, that paddle was heavy and I was sweating. Instead, I decided to go home and watch a little tube. And I was hungry maybe I ' d stop by Stucchi ' s on the way to celebrate my victory. Yes, this exercise would definitely pay off. I ' d be a walking Adonis before you could say, " Schwartzenegger. " Or, maybe not. Sure, Arnold ' s built like a truck, but can he play ping-pong! Everything indicates that he can because he is currently working on a new movie The Last Ping-Pong Hero.

Hot Dog Parking The drive from my apartment to the Hop- In on South U. was not an easy one, as it required superb navigational skills and hours of intense planning. The maze of one-way streets paired with having to run the gauntlet of pedestrians and double-parked cars was more that any labo- ratory mouse could sleuth. I was no stranger to this route, however, since I had stockpiled sev- enteen coupon books, each one containing two discounts for free chili with a hot dog purchase. I was veteran Ann Arbor driver, and I knew exactly how to get to my dogs in as little time as possible. Anyway, after making the well-known trek, I realized that there was no place to park within a mile radius of Hop-In. I tried looking for an off- street spot. No such luck. I tried looking in the metered and UM lots. Bumper-to-bumper cars. I even zig-zagged my way up the ramps of the public structures and found nothing but a nice view of the city when I got to the top. Convinced that I would end up having to park my car in Ypsilanti, I began to get upset. There was no way that I would let something silly like finding a parking spot come between me and my chili dogs. While I was circling around South U. for the sixth time, I no- ticed a truck leaving from the load ing zone next to Me Donald ' s. " There it is! There it is ! " my stomach screamed as my brain locked on target to that small piece of pavement which I would only need to use for five minutes to get my chili dogs. I immediately made a Dukes of Hazzard 180-degree turn as I jumped the sidewalk on South U. to get first dibs on the spot. It was illegal for me to park there, but then again, this would only take five minutes, right? Sure enough, after hopping in to Hop- In to get my chili dogs, I came back out to find an Ann Arbor parking enforcer punch- ing my license plate number into his com- puter (which, I think, are actually Game Boys, and the officers are playing Tetris). I pleaded with him to cut me some slack, and I even attempted to bribe him with a chili dog. Obviously, he couldn ' t appreciate a good hot dog if it came up and bit him: he sl apped the ticket right on my windshield. The heartless man didn ' t have any sympa- thy for a poor college student, either, as he sneered " Oh no. Too bad. It says here that you ' ve now got eight unpaid parking tick- ets. Sorry, kid, but I ' m gonna have to impound it. " I was so outraged that I (continued on page 318) Tilman Moe, Engineering Lisa Mohnke, Industrial Operations Engineering Julene Mohr, American Culture Alireza Moinzadeh, Bio-Psychology Nancy Molenda, Honors Psychology Sandra Monaco, Political Science Garth Monroe, Clarinet Performance!

O the humanity! (continued from page 317) dropped one of my precious dogs on the ground. Double tragedy! Ten minutes later, because 1 couldn ' t pay on the spot, my car was hooked up to a tow-truck and tears were in my eyes. Those chili dogs were spicy! I was appalled by the lack of coraiption on the part of the parking enforcer I would gladly have had the Hop-In product, which, even though extremely repulsive-looking, are surprisingly good. So I stood there, dog in hand, and watched as my car rode off into the sunset under the watchful eye of the tow-truck. What a mix of emotions I felt ! elated by the perfect meal, yet torn to bits by the shock of actually having to pay off the parking tickets.

I had just turned into the State Street en- trance of Nickels Arcade on my way to the post office and already I could see one of those lines unpleasantly associated with Ann Arbor coming The Nickels Arcade Wind Tunnel - or is it a greenhouse. ' out from the door. I was in a hurry, but had given myself time because 1 knew there would be a line. There is always a line. (This made me a bit upset because Nickles Arcade makes me so claustro- phobic due to the strange lighting and the high number of people that are usually in it. Also, it reminds me of a wind-tunnel, because of the blustery gusts that blow through it. Some people have contradicted me on this point, saying that it ' s really more like a greenhouse. I have thought hard on this, though, and I don ' t think it takes into account correctly the odd light and the choking claustrophobia. Could plants live and grow in the environment of Nickels Arcade? If I were a plant, I know I couldn ' t! Also, when you factor in the wind that whistles down the alley, you wouldn ' t have the sanctity of a confined greenhouse, and it would add much more to my theory of Nickels Arcade as wind-tunnel.) Anyhow, I maneuvered through the people that seemed to be congregated at every shop window and made my way toward my destina- tion. However, when I had to cross over (I was on the right side of the arcade when I should have been on the left), I forgot to look in my blind spot (actually it ' s more of a blind -area than blind-spot because, unlike in cars, I had no use of mirrors to look behind me) over my shoulder and bumped into a lady carrying a package. It hap- pened to be a fragile antique, and I happened to make her drop it. The package crashed and she stared at me lik e I was the clumsiest clod this side of Gerald Ford. So I had that on my hands as well, which meant that it would take far longer than I could ever have anticipated for me to mail the letter at the post office! She yelled at me for the better part of five minutes, how she had been looking all over for that thing, how she had walked all the way from South U for it, how there wasn ' t another one like it in the whole world, and that she couldn ' t possibly place a price value on it. I didn ' t exactly know what she wanted me to do (and I surely didn ' t ask her), so I just said, " Sorry, " lamely, and kept walking towards the post office. But it turns out that she was headed that way, too, and she walked beside me (more precisely, in my blind area, a bit off my left shoulder) on my way down the wind tunnel of the arcade towa rd the post office, hurling more invectives in my ear. This made me decide not to go the rest of the way to the post office until I could do it without someone yelling in my ear, so I turned into Boersma Travel, much to the chagrin of my assailer, and waited for her to exit the arcade. I was planning to leave as soon as she got out of the alley, but the travel agent asked me if I wanted something so I felt obligated 1 at least to look at brochures. I flipped through one on Alaska, and thought, as I looked at the pictures of moose, that Northern Exposure was a pretty good show. I waited it out as long (continued on page 323) Graduates 321 William Obeid, Economics Michelle OberLiesen, Mechanical Engineering Tom Obertynski, Bio-Psychology Todd Ockaskis, Architecture Catherine Odtohan, Communication Susan Offer, English Jeanne Oh, Biology Jodi Ojeda, Sociology Aid Okuyucu, Computer Engineering Michael Ol, Aerospace Engineering Douglas Olds, Chemical Engineering Mark Oleksinski, Electrical Engineering Adele Olivero, Natural Resources Colleen Olle, English Jennifer Olmstead, Politico! Science (continued from page 321) as I thought was necessary to avoid violating the proprietor-customer re- lationship, and left (not before say- ing a conciliatory " Thanks " to the receptionist) for the post office. Look- ing carefully in all directions before crossing the arcade, I finally made it to the line, which was even more lengthy than when I had first ob- served it. In the haven of the line (at least I was now in sequence to complete my task; everything before had been the lag-time associated with running the gauntlet of the arcade), I was surprised to find that Brian, an old high school classmate, was fourpeople ahead of me in line. He was talking to someone else, so I decided not to say anything to him and did every- thing I could to avoid his glances. 2 I didn ' t really like him in high school; I simply knew him and felt obligated when I saw him to ask him what other fellow classmates were doing. Our conversations never went any- where, but reeked of nostalgia. There- fore, I was happy to avert his glances. He may have been thinking the same thing (because, in all likelihood, he had seen me, too; it ' s kind of hard to hide in a post office line) so it might have been an act of mutual avoidance. The line took about five minutes or longer to unfold, and as it wound around the labyrinth that is created by the placement of the table (which is there for people who need some place to address letters or whatever I always did that at home), I thought about the other post offices I had been in, and the N ickels Arcade post office was the small- est one I could think of. When it was my turn to be served, I looked in the small pouch of my bag and found that I had forgotten the let- ters all together. This, of course, added to the claustrophobia of the Nickels Arcade, and I felt like vomiting. I left quickly, looking utterly foolish to have been waiting in line all that way for absolutely nothing, and went back to get the letters. I would have been tempted to give them to the postman at home, but my ways were so firmly en- trenched (I was a die-hard post office frequenter) that I had no recourse but to go through the whole miserable wait- ing game 3 again. ' I couldn ' t simply say " no " to her and leave because I had to maintain that I was a customer who was interested in something, under the convention of the proprietor-customer relationship that our whole economic system is based on. If 1 tried to get out of the situation without seeming interested in what Boersma Travel had to offer, I would be violating the system in a way very similar to the instances where I would go into a store simply to get a dollar bill broken for laundry, or candy machines, or stamp machines. In all of these cases where the proprietor-customer relationship is violated, there is no recourse; nothing can be said to amend the wrong. 2 Brian was one of those really annoying types of people that don ' t actually look at you when they are speaking to you. They may look at your forehead or your nose, but not your eyes. Most of the time, though, they are shooting looks here and there, looking for god-knows-what, and looking very disinterested in what- ever the conversation is about. - I usually passed the time in line by observing trivial things and recognizing the universal importance of them, such as the proprietor-customer relationship, or the blind-area thing. It ' s a great time killer. Factoid: Mailboxes can swallow more than one thousand times their weight in letters. 322 Graduates Dax Olsher, English Barbara Olson, Nursing Jamie Olson, History Kelly Olszewski, Industrial Operations Engineering Alison Opper, Cellular Molecular Biology Jennifer Orhan, Psychology Christopher Orlandi, Statistics Catherine Ann Orser, French Rachel Orth, Human Resource Management Bernard Ortiz de Montellano, Electrical Engineering Angela Ortiz, Sociology Nichole Ortsman, Political Science Chad Osburn, Mechanical Engineering Jennifer Osburn, English Michael Ost, Anthropology Zoology Elizabeth Ostow, Psychology Communication Matt Ottmer, Political Science Kritienne Ouellette, Anthropology Melissa Overkamp, Cellular Molecular Biology Carmen Cecelia Oviedo, Political Science Aretha Owusu, Political Science Maria Pacis, Psychology as a Natural Science Michele Packard, Political Science Trisha Page, Political Science Elizabeth Palmer, Business Administration Gladys Palomeno, Asian Studies Alfred Pan, Mechanical Engineering Lori Pancer, History Stacey Panek, English Michael Panoff, Computer Engineering Eugene Pantangco, Cellular Molecular Biology Vicky Papoutsis, English Rosemarie Pardo, Architecture Anita Parekh, Psychology Nima Parikh, Finance Marketing Graduates 323 CRISP-O " I ' m sorry, Mr. Student, " said the senior auditor, whom I likened to a Q-tip, " But you still need a natural sci- ence class.

Oh, here ' s a good one. Dino- saurs and Other Failures. Sounds per- fect. I filled out one of those Drop Add forms and take it to the inputer. She did her thing, but said, " I ' m sorry. That class is closed. " Ugh! I hate it when that hap- pens. " But I need that class to gradu- ate! " I said. It ' s a scary thought when you need a class about dinosaurs to gradu- ate. I ' ll bet the founders of our univer- sity never had a clue this would ever come to be. The CRISP lady said, " So do you think those are the magic words to re-open the class? " " They should be. " Now we were playing hardball. " But they aren ' t. " The game was up. I said, " I ' m outta here. " The CRISP lady smiled and said, " Have a nice day. " I looked up the professor ' s name in the campus phone book. Twenty- eight people had the same name. I thought, I will not be daunted. I pressed on, and called all the numbers. On the twenty-seventh try, I found my quarry. " What? " is exactly how she answered the phone. " My name is Joe Student, and She cut me off with a deep sigh. " You want a ! @!ing override, don ' t you? " Boy, was I embarassed. " Uh, yes... I need your Dinosaurs and Other Failures class to graduate.

I would now be the teacher ' s pet, and would receive an ' A ' on my fine essay discuss- ing the peculiar phenomenon of the pterodactyl. After she agreed to give me the override, I decided to bring her an apple a day to keep the bad grades away. Sure my wallet would suffer to the core, but at least I would graduate on time.

Hash Bashing It was Hash Bash time again, though it ' s not like I cared. In fact, I wasn ' t even planning on going to it, if you want to know the truth. I just got sort of sucked up in it as I was going to the library, and that ' s how what happened to me got started. I was strolling down State Street, worrying about what to do first when I got to the library get a carrel, or go directly to the bathroom when I noticed an unusually large number of seedy-looking individuals roamingabout. I was curious, but kept on walking. It only dawned on me that it was Hash Bash when I saw a dude (and I mean that in every sense of the word) peddling T-shirs that said, " A jointaday keeps the doctor away. " I groaned because I knew that it would be very hard indeed to get across the Diag without touching someone. Still, I was a bit amused with the whole spirit of the thing, so I decided tocheck it out (even though there was a certain pressing need to attend to i.e. Nature was calling). P roceeding toward the eye of the Hash Bash storm, I made up a game where I counted the number of people with bad haircuts. I was up to ninety-nine as I hit the Diag proper, and was immediately lost among the many peoples therein. It was like a whole new world a veritable jungle of smoking trees. In front of me, I saw my old high school friend Stinky. We called him Stinky for a certain problem he had with fungus. He saw me, too, and called me over. I concluded he was either drunk, or something else, because we never were that good of friends and every time I ' d seen him since being in college we ' d mutually- avoided each other gladly. Anyway, he called me over and said, " Hey, Joe! Dude, what have you been up to? Wanna hit? " " No, " I said, " I gave it up for Lent. " " C ' mon, man, " Stinky said. " Everybody ' s doing it. " I was spineless where peer pressure was concerned, so I said, " All right. Just once. It ' s worth it. " He gave me the joint and I took a quick puff. I must admit that I didn ' t inhale. Remember that in case I run for president sometime. Suddenly, a hand was on my shoulder and a voice in my ear. " Son, come with me. " It was Ann Arbor ' s finest, those men in blue. " Wait, " I said. " I was just " Yeahjknow. Youwerejustpassingbyandthis guy shoved a joint in your mouth. " " But I didn ' t inhale! " I said. It was no use. I was ready for him to say, " Book ' im Dan-O, " but he didn ' t. I yelled, " Gee thanks, Stinky! " I felt like a criminal. However, it was kind of exciting being manhandled like a thug. I began getting into the part as he led me away to his car, and I started yelling, " I am the Lizard King! I am the Lizard King! " It would be kind of cool to have a police record, even if it was a pretty boring one. The officer shoved me through the crowd, and, just as Burton Tower tolled two, we came to his police car. Listening to the bells, I asked the officer, " Aren ' t beheadings usually given at the strike of two? " He shrugged, but chuckled. I was very much surprised when, instead of doing whatever it is that they ' re supposed to do to a pot smoker, he patted me on the back and said, " Run, boy. Run like the wind. " I looked at him blankly. " Go on, " he urged. I took off like a shot in the direction of Toledo, never looking back. I thought, they ' re something awfully stinky about all of this. I decided not todo any reading after all, but go home and watch television instead. I ' d earned it I had almost served time. But still depressed at not being arrested after all that, I came to the conclusion, as I wassprintingdown State Street back toward my house, that I never should have bothered getting up at all, and that, in a perfect world, the library would come to you instead of you going to it.

That ' s why I always found it best to go to the Main Street bars or a good pub like Ashley ' s for a relaxed atmosphere and great beer. However, on the occasion of my roommate Tom ' s 22nd birthday, he got to pick where we went. Much to my chagrin, he chose Scorekeepers. It just so happened that it was a Saturday, and that meant I would have to be subjected to the worst of man ' s creations the karaoke machine. There ' s nothing worse than hearing a Sinatra- wanna-be slaughter " New York, New York, " or anyone, let alone Cyndi Lauper, sing " Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. " But since it was Tom ' s birth- day, I decided that I should just lump it and go. I didn ' t have to be happy about it, though. I rang up my two of my friends, Cathy and Sally, and the four of us went to my living hell for some fun. There was actually a line to get in, and we waited in it for ten minutes before we were inside and warm. I suggested immediately to find the closest table to the big screen television so I could at least watch sports, but to my perturbance, I saw that it was showing the karaokers " singing. " " No! " I said as Cathy went up to grab a seat. " Not there! Anywhere but there! " I finally agreed to a seat in the balcony. As the carnage of the karaoke began, and some guy was mutilating " Bom To Be Wild, " I decided that the only way I ' d get through the evening was by getting uproariously soused. " Waitress! " I said. I looked around at my friends, pointed at them one by one asking, " Or- ange whip ? Orange whip ? " I turned to the waitress, " Waitress, four orange whips, please. " " What the hell is an orange whip? " asked the waitress. Of course, she wouldn ' t know. " Well, " I sighed, " then I guess we ' ll have a pitcher of the (continued on page 346) Jodi Strassberg, Asian Studies Lara Strayer, Spanish Communication Meridith Strean, Economics Elizabeth Paige Streit, Art Joel Strimling, Psychology Elizabeth Stringer, Psychology Sonja Stringer, African Afro-American Studies Hilary Strober, English Dana Stuart, Oceanography Geology Brian Stull, Psychology Amy Sturock, Psychology Craig Suehrstedt, Civil Engineering Alison Sugarman, Psychology John Sullivan, History Homer Sun, Chemical Engineering Graduates 345 (continued from page 345) sub-standard beer that usually graces such estab- lishments. " " Right, " said the waitress. " Milwaukee ' s Best it is. " I was beyond caring at this point to object, so 1 sat back in my chair to listen to the worst version of " Papa Don ' t Preach " I ' d ever heard. Finally the pitcher came, and this was fol- lowed by many more until I could listen to someone ruin " Celebration " with a smile on my face. We kept pounding it down, and after a bit I was actually quite content, sitting on the balcony looking over a smoke-filled room listen- ing to some pretty good singing. It was fun, after all. Out of the blue, Tom said, " It ' s my birthday, and I want you guys to sing me a song. Get out there and pick a winner. " I was so completely out of it, that I agreed to do it, but I, by damn, was going to pick the song. I decided that I would be Diana Ross, and Cathy and Sally would be the other Supremes. " We ' re doing ' Stop (In The Name Of Love) ' or we ' re doing nothing. " The others agreed, and ten minutes later we were serenading Tom. On stage, things seemed much more enjoy- able. I was Diana Ross, too; I even had the hand motions going. Things were going smoothly. The two Supremes and I were wowing the crowd, and I started having dreams of being discovered by an agent. However, my dreams were short- lived as I was spinning around and got completely tangled in the microphone cord. The entire appara- tus came crashing down, and the annoying sound of feedback was heard throughout the bar. It was such a loud noise, in fact, that people started leaving. The noise could not be stopped, and soon the bar was completely empty. I shouted after everyone, " Hey, why not j ust pull the plug ? " but no one was listening. I stayed on stage for a few minutes afterward and mourned the decline of a star. I said to an empty house, " This was my finest hour. " I added a tear for effect, and then found my friends and went home. Karaoke became popular in Ann Arbor somehow.

Lucidly, we recovered the film, but you shoud have seen the body . . . Cruelia De Ville is not in the picture , and this has nothing to do iwth the accompanying story . " Live, from New York, it ' s Saturday Night! " I had remembered to record the show before going out earlier, and now, as my friends and I sat in my apartment enjoying our post-bar buzzes, we were re-affirmed that it indeed was a Saturday night. Actually it was Sunday morning, but go figure. We had just gotten back from karaoke night at Scorekeepers, and were laughing loudly to Mike Myers doing his Simon character ( " Are you looking at my bum? Cheeky monkeys. Bum- lookers, all of you. " ) and wondering if life could possibly get any better. We realized that it could, when Tom, still the birthday boy, said, " Who wants pizza T " I do! I do! " all shouted immediately, and we scrambled for the coupon books that seemed to make a carpet on my floor. After looking through every possible deal, I said, " Let ' s get Gumby ' s, dammit. It ' s the cheap- est deal in town. " Tom, with a contorted face, said, " Yuck! That stuff tastes like cardboard. Let ' s avoid the Noid and get some Domino ' s. " My buddy Cathy said, " No can do, I ' m boycotting them. How about Cottage Inn? " (We had reconciled since she had buried me in the snow last term.) My buddy Sally said, " I can ' t stand their crust it ' s got like bird seed on it or something. Let ' s just go out and get Ceasar ' s. I can ' t wait any longer. " (We had reconciled since she had helped bury me me in the snow last term.) All conversation ceased when a Pizza Hut commercial came on, and the image of a greasy, cheesy, crustily-baked pie made us salivate. The issue was decided for us Pizza Hut it was. Tom said, " What should we get on it? " Cathy said, " I don ' t care. " I offered a suggestion. " How ' bout meatballs ? ' " Gross! " said Sally. " How can you eat those things?! It ' s butt meat, Joe, butt meat. " I ' d heard that before. " We each have our unique tastes, now don ' t we. " Tom said, " Let ' s just get cheese, for gosh sakes. How much do we want? " Cathy quickly said, " I ' m not that hungry. " No one listened to her, because we wanted volume. Sally said, " I want a large. Now order! " Even though I was starving, I was still a shrewd student. I flipped through the coupons. " We have to have a lot, right? I ' ve got the coupon for that. Check this out Pizza Hut, buy a large, get another for four bucks. " Tom interrupted. " Well, what ' s the area of all that, then? " I was way ahead of him. " I ' ve already figured it out we ' ll get about 50 square inches of pizza in total. I could explain my calculations. . .

" Con-grads, Dude IT was finally here graduation. Four long years I had waited for this day. My release from the prison of school forever. No more would I have to see syllabi or listen to droning professors. Until that day, I had thought it would be the best day of my life. However, it didn ' t turn out that way, as things usually don ' t. The first thing that started the ruin of the day was the fact that the ceremony was set for 1 :00 PM . I wasn ' t altogether glad when the alarm disrupted my dream about being a fish able to survive in an atmosphere of beer. The second thing was that my parents showed up. Now don ' t get me wrong I like my family and everything it ' s just that the last thing I wanted was to have about one-hundred-and-one photos taken of me in my stupid robe and dorky cap. (What 1 want to know is, who designed those things, and how come it ' s so hard to go to the bathroom in them?!) The next terrible thing happened at gradua- tion itself. I had always been under the impression that I ' d walk across a stage and be applauded for having completed a rigorous college program. But that was not the case in the LS A cermony. No, there my fellow students and I were one a large black-robed mass of collective graduates. I was upset, but even so, I thought it was pretty neat graduating in the stadium. I tried to get " the wave " started, but the people around me thought I was an idiot and told me to sit down. My day was spoiling quickly, but I was going to salvage it somehow. I remembered in high school when the principal gave his speech, all the students threw superballsathim. Using a variation on this theme, I made a paper airplane out of the program and (continued on page 354) Pamela Weston, English Christine Wetjen, Psychology Kevin Whalen, Mechanical Engineering Sonjae Whang, Mechanical Engineering James Wharton, Biology Robin Wheatley, Mechanical Engineering Jonathan Wheeler, History Political Science Sean Whelan, Business Administration Master of Accounting Brett White, Economics Communication Christina White, Finance Christine Ann White, Economics David White, Computer Engineering Kevin White, Aerospace Mechanical Engineering Nathan White, Bio-Psychology Stephen White, Mechanical Engineering Graduates 353 (continued from page 353) when President Duderstadt got up to speak, I chucked it. I imagined myself Elvis Grbac as I launched it, and he was my Derrick Alexander. Those paper airplanes go surprisingly far when built correctly, and mine must have been built like an F-16 because it went down and over the students like a bullet and hit Duderstadt smack in the nose. He went down like a sack of potatoes. I was quite pleased with myself, but still concerned about the president. I mean, he was our chief, was he not? I found out quickly how much the chief he was. He got up immediately and said, " Have that man removed! There, that one, with the dumb grin on his face. " I looked around and all eyes were looking at me. Ashamed, I tried to cover up by looking at the person next to me. All eyes shifted to him, and people started booing him. The security guards came and took him, kicking and shouting " O the humanity, " out of the stadium. And that was the last bad thing that hap- pened because then, in addition to having the guilt of wrongly accusing someone, I had not gotten credit where credit was due. He would have his name in the paper. He would be a hero for many. He would be talked of to the future grandchildren of my fellow graduates ( " Little Billy let me tell you about the greatest airplane ever built. It wasn ' t the Spirit of St. Louis, nor the Concord jet. No, the greatest airplane ever built was what we Michigan alumni call the " Dude-inator. " It was pure poetry in flight.) So my day was ruined and I left the University of Michigan on a down note. Not that there ' s anything wrong with that. Ross Perot unexpectedly showed up to speak at the 1993 graduation ceremony. However, Perot gri- maces here as he chokes on a grape thrown by former running-mate , Admiral Stockdale who , when asked , didn ' t know who he was, or why he was there.

What did Jim Abbot, Barry Larkin, and Chris Sabo have in common? They each played college baseball at Michigan and went on to become star major league baseball players. These men and others who made it to the major leagues contributed to a tradition of excellence in Michi- gan baseball. However, the proud program suffered through some tough times in the spring season as the effects of a two year probation landed theteamnearthebasementoftheBiglO standings. The Wolverines still had the talent, but the level of play wavered from spectacular to dismal. The team opened the year with a dismal two wins and twelve losses during a Florida road trip. In Michigan ' s defense, most of the Florida teams had already been playing for nearly a month. When the Wolverines returned from the dismal Florida trip, they went on an incredible 1 2 and 1 run to push their record a game over .500. However, the inconsistency persisted. In late March, Eric Heintschel and Marion combined for a 1 -0 shutout of Wright State, but Michigan lost the second half of the double-header 1 5-4. Even after Bill Freehan coached his team to a fourth consecutive victory, he was far from pleased: " I ' m not happy with our defense. I ' m not happy with our catching. I ' m not happy with our baserunning. I ' m not a happy coach. " Such criticism may have seemed unwarranted after a win, but Freehan, like all good coaches, was more concerned with consistency and steady improvement than brief winning streaks. Reliever Todd Marion theorized, " My fresh- man class that came in the fall of 1988 was one of the best in the country. The combination of the class of ' 88 graduating or being drafted and the probation prevented us from recruiting fresh talent. The result was a huge amount of inexpe- rienced players trying to fill the shoes of those who had left. " Michigan Daily sportswriter Ryan Herrington, searching for humor in the incon- sistent play, diagnosed the exact cause of the ailment as " youthus toomuchus. " Indeed, over half the players on the 1992 squad had little or no experience entering the season, and though many showed promise, they also displayed their inexperience. Leads vanished as young pitchers struggled in pressure-filled late innings; baserunners missed signs or failed to execute in critical situations; and batters found it difficult to read the pitches of experienced southern and Big 10 opponents. In the victory that elicited the criticism from Freehan, one Michigan player hit a double but fell for the hidden-ball trick at third, anot her ran into an easy double play trying to score from second on a slow grounder, and Michigan pitchers struggled in all but two innings. The team finished the season losing 18 of its last 24 games to end with a record of 21-32 and a tie with Penn State for eighth place in the Big 10. Second baseman Scott Timmerman was named to the All-Big Ten first team. Centerfielder Steve Buerkel was named to the third team, and was the only one of seven seniors finishing his eligibility.

" Right now my team is Carol Hutchins fearless. They have fire Coach in their eyes, and it ' s UM Softball exciting to watch them. " By Adam Hundley Hoping to attract more fans and provide better facilities for Michigan teams, the Univer- sity began a $100,000 renovation project on Varsity Diamond in 1991. But for the 1992 softball team, it was foreign fields that proved the key to a championship season. The team posted a perfect 14-0 away record against Big Ten opponents and finished first in the confer- ence for the first time ever. The non-conference portion of the schedule provided little evidence of the team ' s mastery of opposing fields. It posted an unimpressive 12-12 record the first month of the season playing in the Arizona State Sun Devil Classic, South Florida Classic, and National Invitational Tour- nament, though it did achieve consolation runner-up at the Invitational. The team split series against Northwestern and Bowling Green in late March, and then opened the away portion of its Big Ten schedule. In the space of a month, the team welcomed conference newcomer Penn State by scoring seven runs in the first inning of game one and sweeping the four-game series, took two at Michi- gan State, swept four at Indiana by a combined score of 23-4, and won four from Minnesota. The only scare came April 17 when Michigan entered the last inning of a game against Indiana SOFTBALL Front: Sue Sieler, Stacey Reams, Heather Lyke, Shelley Bawol Middle: Student Trainer Bryn Mickle, Mary Campana, Karla Kunnen, Kari Kunnen, Kerry Sayers, Lesa Arvta, Patti Benedict, Manager Deb Kleban Back: Head Coach Carol Hutchins, Athletic Trainer Sue Weitzman, Kim Clark, Michelle Silver, Kelly Kovach, Kelly Forbis, Tina Martin, Julie Chirkson, Asst.

But the intent Wolverines battled back, as Michelle Silver doubled in two runs to tie the game and Mary Campana singled in Silver with the winning run. " It has been a total team effort, " explained coach Carol Hutchins a few days later. " Right now my team is fearless. They have fire in their eyes, and it ' s exciting to watch them. " Individual performances also merited praise, as first year pitcher Kelly Kovach posted her eighth shutout of the season and lowered her ERA to 1.34 while Patti Benedict powered the Michigan offense with a .357 average. Com- bined with an 8-6 home record the team finished 37-22 overall and won the Big Ten with a 22-6 mark. Junior Kari Kunnen said, " We knew what our goal was: to be the Big 10 champions. We all wanted it really bad, and we worked really hard for it. It was an incredible feeling because we ' ve never won a Big 10 championship here before. We were the first ones, and hopefully we can work hard and repeat it. " Two shut-out losses to powerhouse Arizona eliminated the team from the NCAA Regional Tournament, but players felt that the season was a success just the same, and that it would prepare the team for greater accomplishments in the future. Benedict said, " We were successful in winning the Big 1 0, but our hopes of going to the College World Series fell short in Arizona. " In addition to the team achievement, junior left fielder Benedict was named Big Ten Player of the Year and Third-Team All- American while pitcher Kelly Forbis was selected to the Aca- demic All-District Team. Younger players like sophomore Julie Clarkson, who posted a 2.10 ERA, and first year student Kovach, who posted an 8-5 record, indicated that the Wolverines would continue to be a force in Big Ten softball for years to come.

It seems so easy: grab a racquet and swing hard at the yellow fuzzy ball when it comes your way. But when it ' s time to get serious and train hard, that ' s when the unexpected factors pop out of nowhere and the heart of the tennis player is tested. Those unexpected factors never stopped popping up for the men ' s tennis team, and their hearts were simply overwhelmed. Suffering from severe cases of tennis elbow, leg, arm, knee, and a half-dozen other body parts, many key players missed all or part of the season and the team struggled to a 6- 1 6 record and eighth-place finish in the Big Ten. Most of the first two months of the season were lost due to the injuries. While the team did win three straight Big Ten matches in early March, all were close 5-4 decisions against weak opponents like Northwestern and Purdue. Sand- wiched around those three wins were four losses to open the season and eight straight losses in March and April by a combined match score of 11-46. The April 1 1 match against Minnesota gave a good indication of the team ' s predicament. On paper, it looked like an embarrassing 1-6 loss to the Golden Gophers, but in fact number two singles player Dan Brakus, number four Terry London, number five John Lingon and number six Eric Grand were all out with injuries. The only match win came from All- American and number one singles player David Kass, but even he was not immune from the injury bug. Al- though he finished the season 11-0 at number one singles against Big Ten opponents and reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Na- tional Singles Championship, he was plagued by recurring tendenitis problems all season. The team proved it had the talent to win when several players returned for the last two weeks of the season. The day after the Minne- sota thrashing Brakus and London returned and led the team to an impressive 6-0 humiliation of Iowa. After an evenly-matched loss to national powerhouse Notre Dame, the team defeated Michigan State and Penn State by a combined score of 1 1 - 1 to close the season. The team finished eighth at the Big Ten Championships as more injuries forced Kass to sit out the contest against Michigan State and sent the team to three straight losses. But coach Brian Eisner kept an optimistic view that the team had the talent to become a Big Ten power, " Because of all the injuries, people just have to realize that we haven ' t been fairly evaluated this year, " he said. " They ' ll look at our record, but we know better than that. " ' Because of all the Brian Eisner injuries, people just have Coach to realize that we haven ' t UM Men s tennis been fairly evaluated... " MEN ' S TENNIS Front: Asst.

We ' ve struggled this Amv Malik year. I ' m not disappointed with the UM Women ' s tennis season, but I ' m not pleased. If a member of a tennis team told you that the team finished with a 9-4 conference record, you wouldn ' t expect to hear any sounds of disap- pointment. That is, unless you attend the University of Michigan, where the players natu- rally expect the best. Despite constant improvement each season, the Wolverine netwomen are no longer satisfied with being just " good " : They wanted to compete with the best. And although the final standings were impres- sive, the hunger for superiority had yet to be satisfied. The way the players talked, it seemed like they had performed poorly all year. " We ' ve struggled this year, " said co-captain Amy Malik as the team prepared for the conference champi- onships. " I ' m not disappointed with the season, but I ' m not pleased. We lost to some schools that we shouldn ' t have. We played horribly against Illinois (8-1 loss), and we had plenty of opportunities against top 25 teams like Ala- bama.

It all meant that, unlike in the mid 1980 ' s when the team finished last in the conference three out of four years, the players now expected excellence and knew how to combine their talents to compete successfully against the best in the country. Stressing balance and togetherness through- out the year, three first year students, one sophomore, one junior, and four seniors sought to mold their differing ages and perspectives. At first the chemistry didn ' t seem to be working: they lost five of the first six matches. But they got it together for the balance of the Big Ten season. Rookie Jaimie Fielding concluded early in the season that " it ' s a really strong team in terms of spirit and helping each other out. " With that attitude, the team won eleven of its last fourteen matches and won two of three matches on its way to a fifth place finish at the Big Ten Championships. Coach Elizabeth " Bitsy " Ritt said, " Origi- nally we were picked to come in third, so on paper it may seem like a disappointing year, but we actually had a very good year. We were plagued with illness and injuries throughout the entire season, and the players who were healthy really responded and did a great job all season long.

After suffering through a disap- pointing indoor season, the Wolverine track and field men were eager for a chance to redeem themselves. Taking advantage of the spring schedule, the team won several meets before a disappointing finish at the Big Ten championships. The indoor team tallied a first place finish at the Michigan Quadrangular against Ohio State, Michigan State, and Penn State, but sandwiched around that win was a second place showing at the Indiana Triangular and last place finish at the Illinois Triangular. The team placed sixth at the Central Collegiates and ninth at the Big Ten Indoor Championships. Head Coach Jack Harvey said, " Overall, it was not a very good year. We had injuries with some of our top guys in the indoor season. The outdoor season was a little better, but we just didn ' t have the strength in the line-up we needed, and that really hurt us. " The start of the outdoor season in March witnessed improvement in almost every meet. Although no team score was recorded at the opening Stanford Invitational, individual Wolverines shined as Brad Darr placed second in the pole vault and freshman sensation Stan Johanning finished third in the javelin and set a school record with a 213 ' -8 " throw. The team then placed first at the University of Virginia Quadrangular and a week later won the Purdue Relays. At Purdue, Johanning smashed his personal best and set the Big Ten mark with a 232 ' -1 1 " throw and six other Wolverines Swon events. Johanning ' s record breaking javelin toss was one of only three Big Ten records rewritten in the 1992 outdoor season. At the Central Collegiates the team moved up to fourth, though at the Big Ten Outdoor Championships it could only move up to eighth. Senior Brad Darr though starred for the Wolverines, as he won the pole vault and set a school record by clearing 18 ' -0.5 " . He later earned All-American honors for the second consecutive year by placing sixth at the NCAA National Outdoor Championship meet. Junior Dan Reddan also came through for Michigan, taking 5th place in the high jump, but just missing qualifying for a chance to defend his All-American status. Matt Smith, 3rd place finisher in the steeplechase in the Big 10 Championships, said, " There were a group of guys with a lot of talent, but some came through and some didn ' t. We had a very close team, and hopefully that closeness will lead us to success next year.

" By Adam Hundley Sports 371 SO CLOSE, YET... Women ' s track team came away disappointed, despite dedication and excellent personal finishes. ' ...It would have just Laura Jerman taken a swing of a few Sophomore places to get us in the UM Women ' s track top five. " By Matt Kassan and Adam Hundley Contrary to popular belief, there were people who left their cozy rooms to brave the Michigan weather. They ran over hills, through the woods, and around the track. And when they were done with that, they headed for the weight room. Who were these people, and why did they do what they did? They were the dedicated members of the women ' s track and field team and they wanted to be the best. Sometimes they were. At the Purdue relays in mid April, women ' s track star Chris Szabo found herself in a fierce 3000 meter race with two other competitors. Usually that could spell trouble, but in this case her challengers were teammates Courtney Babcock and Kelly Chard. The team ' s depth helped it capture first place at the Purdue Relays. Unfortunately, not all meets went as well. The tracksters started the indoor portion of the schedule on fire, posting consecutive victo- ries at the Indiana Triangular and Michigan Triangular and, at the beginning the outdoor schedule, they notched a victory and 2nd place finish in two meets. However, despite the mo- mentum carried going into the Big 10 Championships, the team came out disap- pointed. Head Coach James Henry said, " Our goal going into the Big 10 Championships was to 372 Sports Former freshman walk-on Debbie Williams found herself competing in the pentathlon which includes seven different events: long jump, high jump, shot put, 1 00m hurdles , 200m sprint, javelin, and the 800m rub. - Photo courtesy of Sports Information score 75 points, and place in the 1st division, the top five. We came away disappointed with our eighth place standing, but very pleased but not satisfied with the 68 point total. " Sophomore Richelle Webb reflected, " We came together as a team, but we were plagued with a lot of disappointments and injuries. " Despite the disappointment of the eighth place finish, it did not indicate the team ' s com- petitive performance in the Big 10. In fact, the difference between the fourth through eighth teams was only a dozen plus points. Laura Jerman said, " I think that our team performed very well at the Big 10 meet, and it would have just taken a swing of a few places to get us in the top five. " The disappointing finish by the team almost overshadowed the spectacular seasons completed by a few individuals. Junior Christine Westerby broke the school record in the 600m and was an NCAA qualifier. Jerman, a sophomore, was the team ' s top point scorer in the Big 10 Champion- ships and, along with Webb, was voted most improved by the Michigan coaches. In a season that seemed to be summed up by one disappoint- ing meet, the consistency of the Wolverines and the outstanding individual performances throughout the season was the true barometer of the team ' s success. spite hes, ion, die whom Michigan ' s top point scorer for the Big Ten Outdoor Championships , sophomore Laura ]erman was runner-up in the pentathlon.

" The season was sort of a disappointment. We mmmmm had the most talent Jj2S ' jf SfJjlS b we ' ve had in probably ten years... ' Superstitious people usually love the number seven; gamblers certainly do. But for the men ' s golf team, the number proved not so lucky, as the team placed seventh in half its meets, in- cluding the last four of the season. Coach Jim Carras felt that the team had reasonably good results considering top ten finishes in meets of 20 to 30 teams is respectable. However, as Carras said, " I thought we were much more talented than our results produced. " Despite a team full of talent, it could not overcome the 7th place barrier in any of its spring meets and was disappointed with the Big Ten Championship finish. Junior James Carson added, " The season was sort of a disappoint- ment. We had the most talent we ' ve had in probably ten years, but things did not go as well as we had thought. " The team got off to a bad start in March with 7th, 12th, and 14th place finishes at the Fripp Island Invitational, South Florida Invitational, and Johnny Owens Invitational respectively.

While not trying to make excuses for the team ' s rough start, Junior Anthony Dietz said, " Most of the guys are playing their best golf in the fall, and it takes time to get back into form, especially mentally, following the winter lay- off. " An eighth-place finish at the Marshall Invi- tational was followed by consecutive seventh places finishes at the Firestone Intercollegiate, Spartan Invitational, and Wolverine Invita- tional. One of the problems that the team had to deal with was the unseasonable weather in the months of March and April. As Carson said, " Because of the weather, we didn ' t have the practice we needed to prepare ourselves for the tournaments. " The team did have the chance to redeem itself, but as Carras said, " We faltered in the Big Ten Championships " as the team once again came in seventh. Kobane again led the team at two of the tournaments, while Carson shot a team best 112 in the rain-shortened Firestone Tournament. Dietz shot a 290 to pace the Wolverines at the Big Ten Championships. If nothing else, the hard luck the Wolverines encountered with the number seven was a sign of consistency. Unfortunately, the team discov- ered that consistency does not breed success. Yet as Dietz said, " Nonetheless, it was a good season as everyone gave their best effort.

Students often complain that it ' s difficult to regain top academic form after spring break, summer vacation, and other holidays. The same holds true in the world of sports as athletes can have difficulty regaining top competitive form following a long layoff. The women ' s golf team learned this firsthand, for, following their long winter layoff, they had trouble regaining the top form that brought them much success in the fall portion of their season. The team enjoyed a very successful fall sched- ule with victories at the Lady Wolverine tournament to start the fall season and the Bowling Green Fall Invite to close it out. Sopho- more Wendy Bigler placed first at both events, shooting 241 and 75 (rain-shortened). As Jun- ior Tricia Good said, " We had been playing all summer and were in top form for the fall season. " However, because of Michigan winters, the team faced a lengthy layoff between the end of its fall season and the start of its spring season. While many enjoy the break so they will not burn out, it is often difficult to get into the flow of playing golf again. This is especially true of the mental aspect of golf, as Bigler said, " It takes time to get mentally ready and get your confi- dence back. " Because of not having a chance to play outdoors, " It takes a lot of time to get back to where you were in the fall, " added Good. After almost five months of snow, the team returned to the links with consecutive Hth place finishes at the South Carolina Invite and Indiana Invitationals. However, as the spring portion of the season continued, the team seemed to be returning to its fall form when it placed fifth at the Purdue Invitational; this time led by Senior Erica Zonder ' s second place finish. Coach Sue LeClair knew the team had talent and could play better. " They are all hitting well, " said LeClair after the tournament. " I knew it was there somewhere, it was just a matter of getting it going. " This apparent turnaround came at just the right time as the team headed into the Big Ten Championships in early May. However, the turnaround was short lived, for the team placed a disappointing ninth and no Wolverine fin- ished higher than 31st. " It was hard to concentrate on my game because of having to study for finals at the same time, " said Bigler. " None of us really played our best golf. We were just not back in fall form, " added Good. While many students claim that the long Michigan winters disrupt their excellent pre- winter academic flow, the Michigan women golfers also could not regain their consistent fall form. Snow was eagerly anticipated by much of the school population, but for team members it meant a long wait for the spring season. ' It takes time to get Wendy Bigler mentally ready and get your confidence back... to where you were in the fall. " WOMEN ' S GOLF Maura Hawkins, Kate Hanson, Wendy Bigler, Tegan McCorkd.

" When you drain a sponge out it takes a while to fill it again. Have a system to your breakdown. You gotta know what you ' re going to do every time. Hook an ankle! Chop an arm! " Coach Dale Bahr to his wrestlers. Coach Bahr, the second most winning coach in school history, and his nine returning letter- winners, including All- American Lanny Green, broke down their opponents when it counted and earned a 5th place Big Ten finish among tough competition. Although the Wolverine wrestlers took fifth place at the Big Tens, the journey there was marked by highlights and low points. At the November 14-15 Ohio Open, UM earned four divisional titles from Pharmacy senior James Rawls (142), NCFD senior Lanny Green (177), and Physical Education juniors Sean Bormet (158) and Steve King (HW). Physical Educa- tion sophomores Jehad Hamden (190) took third place, Mike Mihalic (134) took fourth, and Mike Ellsworth (142) took seventh. LSA Junior Brian Harper (150) finished fifth. Coach Bahr credited the January 23-24, Cliff Keen National Team Duals in Lincoln, Ne- braska, as the season ' s high point. The Wolverine grapplers came in 5th of 16, and won four of six matches including a 31 to 7 Missouri wipe-out. The team accepted a Valentine ' s Day heart- breaker in Cliff Keen Arena losing to 8th ranked Minnesota (20-12), notwithstanding the wins of seniors Green, Rawls, and Jason Cluff at 126, and sophomore Hamden. Bormet stayed out with a back injury. Coach Bahr introduced each senior before their last home match, and the seniors never relinquished the spotlight. Cluff, an LSA senior, punctuated his attacks with disorienting war cries and managed a smooth takedown in the last period for a 3-2 win. Rawls took his match easily 7-3. Green built up the anxious tension through the last period for a 5- 4 win. Hamden almost defaulted a 12-5 win when he took the full time out to tend a leg injury with 37 seconds left in his last period. Hamden said (of his opponent), " He was a good sport. He didn ' t go after my knee. I gave him a good shellacking, and he acknowledged that. " After the meet, however, the torn cartilage in his right knee forced Hamden out for the dura- tion of the season. Two matches later the Wolverine wrestlers rode their emotional roller coaster into East Lansing and emerged from the Spartans ' lair with a 28- 1 2 victory. Rawls was pleased with the team ' s performance. He explained, " It ' s the highest we ' ve been in a couple of years. We ' re all dedicated, solid, hard working guys. We get results! " The team took fifth place overall in the March 5-6 Big Ten Championship in Colum- bus, Ohio. Wolverines Ellsworth, Green, and King each hammered out third place individual finishes while Cluff landed in fourth place. Physical education sophomore Bryan Perkins achieved a " great accomplishment " by placing 7th as a walk-on at the 118 Ibs. spot. Bonnet ' s " nagging injuries " didn ' t alter his intention to become an All-American. " That ' s the plan, " Bormet said, " I take it in stride. It doesn ' t matter what you do all year if you go on to win in the nationals. " " It doesn ' t matter what Sean Bormet you do all year if you go on to win in the nationals.

" The school, facility, Greg Giovanazzi the support from the Coach athletic department - it ' s all fantastic. ' By Peter Kogan = After the 19-12 performance of last season, the Wolverine spikers began the new season with improved expectations and a little uncertainity. The team had shown the Big Ten ' s biggest improvement the previous year, going from last place to sixth, and was full of experienced and talented players. Coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes moved over into the Athletic Department, however, and new mentor Greg Giovanazzi, who had been the head assistant for America ' s bronze-medal winning women ' s Olympic team, took over the reins only days before the first match of the season. With no time to recruit, and little time to adjust, the team had to face an extra amount of pressure at the start of the year. Despite their initial difficulties, the Wolve rines surmounted all obstacles as they leaped from respectability to contention in the Big Ten and the region. Having earned an 8-3 record during their non-conference slate, including two second-place showings in tourneys, the spikers found themselves in the heat of the Big Ten race. Although their initial flourish of four straight conference victories subsided into a tough mid-season stretch, the Wolverines found themselves battling for fourth place in the Big Ten and WOMEN ' S VOLLEYBALL Front: : Erica Badran-Grycan, Fiona Davidson, Kathy Richards Chris White, Hayley Lorenzen, Tarnisha Thompson, Michelle Horrigan, LaShawnda Crowe Back: Asst.

" The whole team has played at a level people didn ' t expect, " said Giovanazzi. " I ' ve really been proud of the way they ' ve responded to changing expectations. " Although the long-range goal was to build a contender in five years, the Wolverines played with skill and passion throughout the season. They swept Michigan State for the year, claiming their third consecutive State Pride Banner in the process, and, though they lost, played aggressively against conference powers Penn State, Ohio State, and Illinois. The players themselves were sometimes surprised by their own prowess. " We ' re going through a period where we ' re just internaliz- ing some of the things we ' ve learned, " said junior Fiona Davidson, after Michigan ' s second victory over MSU made the Wolver- ines 7-4 in the Big Ten. Several Wolverine individuals shone in the Big Ten as well. Senior Michelle Horrigan repeated her position as one of the conference ' s premier kill leaders, and Tarnisha Thompson broke the Michigan record for assists-per-season. Hitters Aimee Smith, Joanna Collias, and Hayley Lorenzen were also among the conference ' s premier players. " We ' re getting much better, " said Collias. " Chemistry-wise, especially, every- thing is improving. " Perhaps the most significant change for Michigan voleyball, however, was the increase in attendence and student and community support. Thanks to creative promotions and greatly improved play, crowds at Cliff Keen Arena were consistently large and enthusias- tic. A mid-season match with Penn State drew 2,137 fans. " There are so many things now in our favor, " said Giovanazzi. " The school, the facility, the support from the athletic department - it ' s all fantastic. This is the first time it ' s been a reality for women ' s volleyball here to receive considerable attention and respect.

The routines of some gymnasts were slow and methodical - it took some time to establish the proper technique, and the best result comes from a steady performance rather than flashes of brilliance. The Michigan men ' s gymnasts treated their season in much the same way that they did their exercises: as part of a gradual process, steadily building up strengths to peak at the right time. The team ' s record at meets was less important in itself than in " helping us establish a pace, " said Coach Bob Darden. The season ' s penultimate effort was to come during the last meets, the wide-open Big Ten championships, and the NCAAs - in which last ' s year ' s squad placed tenth overall. Although the Big Ten was known for overall quality and competitiveness in many sports, few approached the overall levels that existed for men ' s gymnastics. While the Wolverines were tenth in the nation last year, five big Ten squads finished ahead of them - and only seven in the conference even had men ' s gymnastics as a varsity sport! " We were tenth, " said Darden. " The conference meet is almost a preview of the national meet. " The team ' s goals, rather than simply winning dual meets, was primarily to qualify for the NCAA East Regional and Cham- pionships, an accomplishment that became more difficult with a switch from ten regional qualifi- ers to six - but one that Darden felt that his team would be able to accomplish. Michigan ' s strengths rested in the pommel horse, floor exercises, and rings, although the latter had been damaged by injuries to key performers during the year. The dark side had a silver lining, however, in allowing five of the team ' s seven freshmen ample opportunity to contribute. " It gave the guys good competitive exposure, competition they might not have had otherwise " said Darden. " We ' ve had to tap the talents of new individuals to fill the gaps, and they ' ve filled them well. " Sophomore Raul Molina added, " We ' ve been really impressed with the freshmen; they ' ve really come through. " Many of the gymnasts relished the tight com- petitive pace of the Big Ten, especially the intense rivalry with Michigan State. " We espe- cially get up for MSU, " said sophomore Rich Dopp. " They ' re a good program, so you defi- nitely have to be doing your best against them. " The matchups with their conference rivals came at just the right time. " We really feel confident, " said Molina. " Whatever problems we have now, it should all turn around come March. " There was a general aura of optimism around the men ' s gymnastics program as the season progressed. " The important thing is that no- body graduates from this team, " said Darden. " What you see is what you get. And, next year you ' ll get a seasoned team. We ' re on a pace to do better than last year, and, in the future, I figure that we ' ll do real well. " Unfortunately for the Wolverine gymnasts, this season of optimism was to be their last as a varsity sport. In March, The Athletic Depart- ment confirmed rumors that men ' s gymnastics was going to be dropped from the roster of Michigan varsity sports in 1993, to make way for a varsity program in women ' s soccer. Several factors figured into the Athletic Department ' s decision, foremost among them the University and NCAA ' s pursuit of gender equity in schol- arship sports, as well as the question of athletic demographics. Because men ' s gymnastics pro- grams are relatively few in number, and often disappearing at the high school level, the sport ' s future at the college level was seen as endan- gered. In addition, the popularity of both high school and college level club soccer led the Athletic Department to consider a varsity pro- gram in that sport for women and, eventually, for men to be a better long-term prospect. The conference meet is Bob Darden almost a preview of the Coach national meet.

The best of the Big Ten was only getting better. Last season resulted in a very successful run for the Women ' s Gymnastics team, culminating with a Big Ten Conference Championship. However, this year ' s team had its sights set on an even stronger performance. As Head coach Beverly Plocki said, " Coming off of such a suc- cessful season, we did set higher goals this year - repeating as Big Ten champs and qualifying as a team for the NCAA Championships. " Overall, the team entered the season with a high level of confidence. Last year ' s success served to generated a positive note with which to start this season. As Junior Kelly Carfora said, " We knew coming into the season that we could get that far and win the Big Ten and have the caliber to get there again. " Despite having only three seniors, this year ' s squad was loaded with experience. " A lot of things, such as injuries, could have brought us down last year, yet we were still able to over- come them, " said Plocki. As a result of the injuries, many of the young gymnasts had to gain experience very quickly by being immediately thrown into the fire of competition. One of these young gymnasts was sophomore Beth Wymer, the 1992 Big Ten Gymnast of the Year. Wymer said, " Last year helped me to try to realize what to expect from each meet. It has made me more educated and better prepared for this season. " Yet last season ' s rough times also served to teach the team what it takes to work together to accomplish team goals. Plocki considered this knowledge as being one of the team ' s biggest strengths. Plocki said, " They understood what it meant to want a goal bad enough to make it happen. " Wymer added, " Now, we are more aware of what we can accomplish. We know we can get it (winning the Big Ten title) done. " As a result, the team had, as Plocki said, " recognized its goals for the year and would work very hard to reach these goals. " The team ' s other strength came from its depth and experience. Senior Debbie Geiger, Carfora, and Sophomores Debbie Berman and Wymer were among the several gymnasts that brought valuable experience and stability to the team. Along with the rest of the returning gymnasts, the addition of three freshman along with the return of three redshirts, served to further complement the experience of the rest of the team. Such added depth was a coach ' s dream, for Plocki had the ability to alternate lineups from week to week. " The depth should result in less injuries and more energy because you won ' t be competing every time, " said Carfora. " I didn ' t have to use everyone every weekend, so they could be fresher and healthier and the end of the season, " added Plocki. Moreover, with such a deep team, " We knew that anyone was capable of stepping in and doing a good job at any meet, " said Carfora. With the return of key gymnasts to action, the addition of new talent, and the experience gained by the younger gymnasts last season, a coach ' s dream team was ready to ascend to new h eights for the maize and blue.

For over twenty years, Michigan has been one of the teams to beat in the Big Ten. How- ever, in past seasons, there has always been at least one, and often several, teams which were strong enough to give the Wolverines a run for the Rose Bowl. Over the years, these match-ups have enhanced Michigan ' s traditional rivalries and added excitement to the Big Ten race: Ohio State in the 1970 ' s, Iowa, Illinois, and Michigan State in the 1980 ' s and 1990 ' s The Wolverines had grown accustomed to tangling with nation- ally ranked teams on their way to Pasadena. This season, however, has seen an unraveling of the old order. In the final year before powerful Penn State joins the league, the Big Ten fell to its lowest competitive depths in memory ' . Hav- ing posted a 2-1 1-1 record against ranked non- conference opponents, Big Ten teams slogged through a slate of listless conference perfor- mances. The flood tide of mediocrity made a parody of parity: the joke went that any Big Ten team could lose to any other Big Ten team on any given Saturday. For the most part, the Big Ten season proved to be a Big Blue Runaway, as Michigan over- whelmed its hapless opponents with spectacular displays of individual talent. Toward the end of the year, however, the Wolverines lost their grip, having to come from behind to defeat Purdue and enduring disappointing ties with Illinois and Ohio State. Although national championship hopes were dashed, Michigan could savor a fifth straight Big Ten champion- ship, second straight Rose Bowl, an d a record 16-game conference winning streak. In their non-conference blowouts of Okla- homa State and Houston the Wolverines dem- onstrated an explosive passing attack and an aggressive, attacking defense. While these were in full force in the conference opener against Iowa, it was UM ' s traditionally strong running game that overwhelmed the Hawkeyes. Tyrone Wheatley led the way with three touchdowns, one on an 82-yard run, as the Wolverines rolled up 480 rushing yards. Big early runs stunned the Hawkeyes, and the defense swarmed over QB Jim Hartlieb, as Michigan administered a 52-28 thrashing to a once- (continued on page 388) ' We don ' t like State, they don ' t like us.

Wheatley again led the way with 172 yards and two TDs, and wide receiver Derrick Alexander added a punt return touchdown, as UM handed State a 35-10 pasting. The defense held the Spartan running attack under 100 yards, and kept State off the board until the third quarter. The game did have some of the vintage UM-MSU physical and verbal sparring. " We don ' t like Michigan State, they don ' t like us, " said QB Elvis Grbac. " We just wanted to go out and try to beat them up as much as possible. " The Wolverines hit the road next against Indiana, and provided more of the same dominance. The heroes were the same: Alexander with two TDs, on a punt return and a reception, and Wheatley with two more on 134 yards rushing. Indiana quarterbacks endured nine sacks as Michigan waltzed through a 31-3 laugher. Michigan ' s 100th game coincided with Homecoming and the Little Brown Jug as the Wolverines hosted Minnesota on October 24- For showing up, the Gophers received a 63-13 pasting. QB Elvis Grbac, rusty from missing two weeks early on with an injury, returned to form, connecting with Alexander on a Michigan-record four touchdowns. The play of the day, however, came from wide receiver Walter Smith, who turned a 15-yard loss on a reverse into an incredible, broken-tackle 46- yard touchdown. Going on the road on Halloween, the Wolverines almost lost their grip on the league title, falling behind 17-7 to an aroused Purdue team. Michigan awoke in the second half, however, with Grbac and backup tailback Jesse Johnson keying a comeback that upended the Boilermakers 24-17. Having looked past Purdue, UM was not about to make the same mistake the next week against Northwestern. Wheatley returned back to form with a touchdown, and Alexander with three, as Michigan man- handled the overmatched Wildcats 40-7 in Evanston. The Illinois game proved to be the clincher for Michigan, but the 22-22 deadlock and the loss of national championship aspirations was a bitter pill to swallow. " It ' s a sad way to get yourself into a big party, " said Coach Gary Moeller after a poorly played game in which the Wolverines fumbled ten times, and, because of questionable play-calling, found itself driving for a game-tying 40-yard field goal by Peter Elezovic. Frustration was the feeling around the locker room after the game. " Next to a loss, this is the worst thing, " said Defensive Captain Corwin Brown. " We don ' t accept a tie here, we strive for the win. " With the worst behind them, the players looked to the future. " We ' re not going to mope on the championship - we ' re just glad we ' re going [to the Rose Bowl], and hoping that we ' ll get to play Washington, " Grbac opined. Although the Big Ten title and a return trip to the Rose Bowl had already been clinched, the Wolverines had no plans to coast through the season finale. Dating back to the Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler era, the Ohio State Michigan Big Ten finale has always been the date circled in red on the calendar. " Michigan State is more of a grudge match. Ohio State is much more intense because of the Woody-Bo thing. It ' s a hard- hitting, emotional game, " added Brown. The Big Ten season finale added to Michigan ' s frustrations. The muddy field at Ohio State was hardly worse-looking than the play-execution of both teams. The game was hard fought, but only OSU could claim a moral victory in the 13-13 final score. The Wolverines had survived the rigorous Big Ten schedule and emerged as the conference champions, and the three disappointing ties could not hinder the quest for pay-back in the Rose Bowl. 388 Sports FOOTBALL Bottom Row: J.

Stanford University accepted the invitation to take on powerhouse Michi- gan, but the West Coast team was flattened 49-0 and gave up in the third quarter. The lopsided score prompted the Tournament to give up football in favor of Roman-style chariot races. " Ninety-one years later, the latest west coast team, the University of Washington, was not about to give up to the powerhouse Wolverines, and those who witnessed " The Grandaddy of All " Bowl Games saw Michigan ' s own chariot of fire Tyrone Wheatley run away with the game ' s MVP award while leading Michigan past the Washington for it ' s first Rose Bowl victory under Coach Gary Moeller. Despite sitting out the fourth quarter with a back injury, Wheatley tallied 235 yards on just 15 carries, missing a Rose Bowl record by twelve yards. Senior Elvis Grbac, playing his last game in a storied career with the maize and blue, passed for 1 75 yards and two touchdown passes. " I ' ve really gotten close to a lot of the older guys, and I saw how important this game was to them, " Wheatley said. " You just can ' t send guys like that out losers. " Michigan won the first Rose Bowl, but has had a checkered past in Pasadena. The Wolverines hoped to vanquish those Rose Bowl demons, many of whom picked Michigan as the underdog against the lower-ranked Huskies, by taking control of the game early. The Michigan defense stopped the high-powered Huskies ' initial drive and Elvis and Co. set up the potent Wolverine offense at the UM 19. On third and long, Michigan flashed a sign of things to come when Wheatley took the handoff and plowed through the left side for a twenty- three yard gain. Kicker Peter Elezovic continued his late season surge by capping the drive off with a 41 -yard field goal.

Not quite ready to toss in the towel, BrunnePs two scoring strikes gave Washington a 21-17 halftime edge, although Washington ' s second touchdown pass appeared to have been fumbled before the ball crossed the goaline. At the start-up of the 9 ' ffc. JK 2 second half, most fans had begun to return from snack trips and other necessities, but the i. Wolverine offense needed no time to settle in. Behind the dominant blocking of All-Big Ten linemen Steve Everitt, Joe Cocozzo, Rob Doherty, and fellow big men Trezelle Jenkins and Doug Skene, Wheatley took the delayed handoff and took off for a Rose Bowl record 88 yard touchdown run. Washington continued its practice of immediately answering Michigan thrusts as the Wolverine defense continued to play the run tough, but gave up big-play passes leading to Husky scores. With the score 28- 24 in Washington ' s favor, the Huskies threatened again, but defensive tackle Buster Stanley stopped a key third down run and Washington settled for a field goal. Derrick Alexander ' s twenty-eight yard punt return to the Washington thirteen yard line looked promising for the Wolverines, but after a few incompletions, Elezovic booted a thirty- three yard field goal which smacked off the left upright and out. On the next play, however, Bobby Powers recovered a Washington fumble and Michigan was back in business. Michigan ' s own Superman, Wheatley immediately ran around right end for a 3 1 -3 1 tie going into the final quarter. ' Aided by two pass interference calls, Washington marched to the Blue goaline with the intent of breaking Wolverine hearts.

' Michigan took over at its own twenty and Ed Davis, sub- , - 5 " k bing for the injured Wheatley, gained a much needed nine- teen yards on four carries. Jk- J Grbac hit a streaking McGee over the middle for a clutch thirty-two yard pick-up. On third and short, from the Washington fifteen, Grbac showed the nerves Wolverine fans desperately needed from him and passed to the dependable McGee who snared the pass and fell into the Husky endzone to the delight of Wolverines everywhere. Coach Moeller said, " The one thing that Michigan wanted to do is that we wanted to sing ' The Victors ' in Pasadena. " ' The masterpiece of a game was not yet over, as Washington aimed for last minute heroics, but Dwayne Ware stopped the scrambling Brunnel just shy of a first down deep in Michigan territory. Washington got the ball back with a minute to go at midfield, but with victory in their grasp and " Hail to the Victors " burning their lips, the Wolverine defense held tight and Michigan football was once again victorious in Pasadena.

Co-ed Cheerleading Squads Lead Wolverine Cheers in Banner Seasons. For most Michigan students, football and basketball games had their own time-honored, revered Michigan traditions: maize and blue striped helmets, the cowbell, and " Let ' s go blue! " The UM cheerleading squad, as well, occupied this special niche. What most students did not realize, however, was that Michigan only had a co-ed cheerleading squad since 1988. Since that time, the Wolverine cheerleaders strived to take their part as. one of Michigan ' s athletic traditions. There were two co-ed cheerleading squads at Michigan: the eight-man and eight-women varsity squad, which performed at football and men ' s basketball games, and accompanied Michigan ' s athletes to bowl games and the NCAA Tournament; and the ten-member JV squad, which regularly performed at women ' s basketball matches. The teams were deter- mined every year at week-long tryouts during the spring; the past year, almost 100 candidates vied for the twenty-six available spots on the JV and Varsity squads. " It ' s more of a fun thing, rather than strictly competitive, " said JV squad member Jennife r Johnson, a former high-school gymnast. " It really is a happy medium. " During the season, the cheerleaders prac- ticed two days a week, for two hours each day, to perfect the routines that they performed at ath- letic events. Although the University provided a travel budget and uniforms for the squad, each individual member had to find a sponsor for their practice gear and shoes. The team ' s main source of revenue, however, was their perfor- " Hail to the Victors Valiant!

" The Athletic Department is still learning about us, " said Coach Annette Schmidt in response to the team ' s main source of income. " It ' s been a learning experience for everybody. " The cheerleading squad wasn ' t all fun and games, however. The cheerleaders, especially the men, also had to deal with stereotypes of being called " feminine " by people who really did not know the truth about what went into the tumbling and twirling acts they saw at sporting events. Cheerleader Jim Burkel said, " My per- ception of the stereotype and of the sport are two entirely different things. It is an amazingly physically strenuous sport, and if you don ' t un- derstand what ' s involved, it ' s hard to put your- self in that place. " . The highlight of the year was the Rose Bowl and the accompanying festivities. The cheer- leaders performed at the Big Ten Dinner and Pep Rally, as well as participated in the Disneyland Parade and conducted another pep rally at Century Plaza on New Year ' s Eve. " We then celebrate the New Year at Michigan time, so we can get a good rest, " said Varsity member Stephanie Huff. " The next day, we have to march five miles in the Rose Bowl Parade, and do stunts along the way when the band stops to play a tune.

The veterans on the women ' s field hockey team knew that the team needed a spark to gain momentum for the 1992 season, but they could not have known how strong that spark would be. Although the team was determined to show progress, an influx of youth added to the already existing talent boosted the team to a 10-8 mark. Senior co-captain Katie Thomas remarked, " I don ' t think I ' ve ever enjoyed a team more. Our team is full of committed, hard working people. I ' m sorry to see that my four years are over. The team has a very promising future. " Thomas finished her season with a career high twenty-four points, leading Michigan for the third straight season. Thomas and Lelli Hose were named to the All-Big Ten Second Team. Forward Katie Vignevic, also starred for the Wolverines, earning a Big Ten Player of the Week award, an accomplishment missing from Michigan field hockey since 1987. The Michigan women ' s field hockey team had nine active first year students this year who, according to Thomas, " are highly skilled individuals. " The new group of first year students was fourth year Coach Patti Smith ' s largest recruiting class. " We went everywhere to recruit and got to choose those we wanted to play for Michigan. The nine new players bring fresh blood into the program and challenge the upperclassmen, " stated Smith. The Wolverine first year students chal- lenged the assumption that experience was the key to success as they led the team in its Michigan State win late in the season. Jen Lupinski scored two goals and added an assist, while her classmate Gia Biagi scored one and assisted on another. First year student goal keeper Rachael Geisthardt turned away nine shots. Senior Katie Allison said, " This year we were really lucky. The nine (first year stu- dents) who came in were really good players. I think the four seniors were positive role models for them. Next year they will have a young team, but I have a feeling they will be really good. " Although seniors Mary Beth Bird, Vignevic, Allison, and Thomas concluded their final season, the team would still have strong players like Geisterhardt, who recorded three shutouts during the season. The experience garnered by the nine new players could be the extra boost needed to push the women ' s field hockey team into a Big Ten contender for years to come.

Si 398 Sports PACK LEADERS Both the women ' s and the men ' s cross country teams breezed to the front of the pack. Without the benefit of an indoor stadium to eliminate tough weather conditions or even a concrete outdoor track to run on, the women ' s and men ' s cross country runners took to the hills and fields. Their hard work and old-fashioned dedication pushed them into the ranks of the Big Ten elite. The women ' s cross country team captured Michigan ' s first ever Big Ten Conference Cham- pionship title of the 1992-93 season on October 31, in Champaign, 111. In a sport where the lowest amount of points wins, the Wolverines tallied thirty-three points, while their oppo- nents, such as Penn State and Iowa, failed to score under fifty. " The only meet the team didn ' t win was the Indiana Invitational, where we lost to defending NCAA champion Villanova, " student manager Katie Stern said. " Going into the Big Ten meet we definitely thought we had a chance to win, but we didn ' t expect to win by as much as we did. " In his first year as head coach of the women ' s cross country team, Mike Mcguire was named the 1992 Big Ten Coach of the Year. Four of the Wolverines were also named to the All-Big Ten Team, as freshman Courtney Babcock, sopho- mores Kelly Chard and Karen Harvey, and senior Chris Szabo were honored for their achieve- ments. Szabo was the leader for Michigan with a third place finish at the Big Ten Champion- ships. Four other Wolverines finished in the top fifteen, all of whom had season best times. Harvey and Babcock crossed the finish line on Szabo ' s heels, landing a fourth and fifth place finish respectively. Chard placed seventh and junior Molly McClimon crossed the line fourteenth. Sophomore Jennifer Stuht said, " For it being Coach Mike ' s first year, I think the year turned out better than great. One reason we did so well is because we have a deep squad and our atti- tudes and personalities really clicked. " The men ' s cross-country team knew going into the season that, when competing against powerhouse Wisconsin, runner-up in the Big Ten was the realistic goal. The men ' s team obtained this goal by taking second place for the third consecutive season. Although the team was concerned about their chances of going to the NCAA Nationals, those fears proved un- founded as the Wolverine runners placed third at Districts and qualified for the NCAA ' s. The men ' s cross country team earned their success with a young nucleus of runners, led by outstanding senior Matt Smith. Ready to move on from Michigan cross-country, Smith stated, " All runners have that Olympic goal in mind, and that dream is coming back in my mind. So, I ' m going to restructure my life and my goals to try to get that dream. " Big Ten Freshman of the Year Scott MacDonald surprised everyone, in- cluding himself, by becoming Michigan ' s second top runner. At the District IV meet, Smith and MacDonald finished two-three, a major high- light of the season. Head Coach Ron Warhurs was content with the team ' s strong showing.

They were plainly visible on campus, selling T-shirts, raffle tickets, and coupon books. They even rented themselves out to do odd jobs. Why all this when no other athletic team had to spend time raising funds? Well, because Michigan Crew did not have var- sity status, and thus, had to raise a majority of the operating budget on their own. Crew, or The University of Michigan Rowing Club, as it was officially called, consisted of 125 members on four teams: men ' s and women ' s " varsity " , and men ' s and women ' s novice teams. They rowed in eight and four men boats, or shells. They competed against other Big Ten schools, and in tourna- ments against Eastern powers such as Harvard, Penn, and Duke. For many years, the team competed as a varsity sport before it was discon- tinued. In 1976, crew was started up again as a club sport. It remained a club sport, despite having grown from nothing in 1976, to the Mid- western power it has become in 1 993 . The rowers consistently won, placing in all but one of their races last year. They were second in the Big Ten behind Wisconsin, where crew was a varsity sport receiving university funding and had won several national championships. Club sport, maybe, but rowing crew was no easy task at any level. As any of the team would testify, rowing crew was an extremely tough test of strength and endurance, re- quiring great balance, as well as the ability to perform under intense pressure. And the team practiced every morning during the week, year-round, at 6 a.m. They re- Greg Emmanuel mained on the water until Thanks- giving, when they went inside and worked out until March. Meeting so early meant that they mostly practiced before the sun came up, which sometimes caused naviga- tional problems. Assistant coach, Tim Wech, a second-year graduate student said, " When its dark, we tend to guess a lot! " Perhaps even tougher than finding the way across the foggy, dark river was waking up so early. Team-member Kate Jones said, " The toughest part i s waking up, " adding, " but you get used to it real fast. " Practices and meets alike demanded endurance. Men ' s " var- sity " coach, Will Brewster, said, " You want to be so tapped at the end (of a run), you can ' t take an- other stroke. " The team was always on the look- out for new rowers. In the fall, they held two mass meetings, signing up many new members. Most new members started out their first year on the novice team, but joined the varsity team the following year. Despite the rigors of the season, and all their achievements, the crew team was, perhaps, best known for the Nude Mile.

Greg Emmanuel Inside Sports ' ball Fever - Hundreds campout to sign up for tickets Following a basketball sea- son that culminated in the second Final Four appear- ance in four years, the Wolverines lost only 3 players, none of them starters. The nucleus of the team returned, experienced and more com- fortable with the lengthy and tough Big Ten season, as well as the heart- stopping, thrill a minute tournament where anything went, including sea- son records, straight out the door. With the Fab Five making a strong showing as freshmen, expectations were high, and some expected no less than another Final Four appearance, most though, set their sights on the NCAA National Championship. When student basketball ticket sales were announced, many fans be- gan to make preparations in order to assure that they would have tickets for the upcoming season. Ticket sales began October 1 1 , at noon, and ran until three that afternoon. Al- though quite a few fans camped out the night before, braving the ele- ments to make sure they got their tickets, everyone was assured of get- ting tickets, so being first in line was of no importance. The people that arrived at the ticket window at three that afternoon received the same chances of getting season tickets as those rugged individuals who decided to camp out all night long. Brian Klemz, assistant ticket manager, said, " There was no need at all for people to camp out. In fact, we went over after the football game and told them how it worked, and told them that there was no need to camp out. " Nonetheless, many people, un- aware of the system being used to distribute tickets, arrived immedi- ately following the football game. As the night progressed, the line slowly grew. Students showed up with their sleeping bags, blankets, food, and music. They persevered even as the temperature steadily dropped throughout the night, reaching a low 35 degrees by morning. David Kim and Jacob Gin arrived at 9:30 P.M. the night before. After spending the bulk of the night play- ing cards, studying, and listening to music, they had different opinions regarding their experience. Kim, a first year student, looked on it in a positive light, saying, " It ' s part of college that makes it fun. We had a good time last night in spite of the cold weather. " While Gin, also a first year student, complained, " I wish we would have been better informed of the system they were using. We camped out here all night long, got crushed in a mob of people that ri- oted when the doors finally did open, and then a friend of mine shows up at three and gets his tickets like that. " The system was designed to make sure that everyone that wanted a ticket got a ticket. Although, be- cause of low ticket demand in the past, the student ticket allotment fell to 3,100 - about 2,000 less than the 5,000 reserved for student purchase previous seasons. Klemz said, " It was set according to past years ' sales, which always hovered around the 3,000 mark. That has left us with a surplus of tickets each year that are harder to sell then to the regular ticket holders. " The ticket office determined that any requests for tick- ets that went beyond the 3,100 allo- cated, would result in the need for split season tickets. With approxi- mately 4,500 tickets sold that Sun- day, the split season process was em- ployed. A bout 2,800 students re- ceived split season passes, while 1 ,700 received full season. To the surprise of many uninformed students who suffered through the night to be the first in line the next day, first come, first serve basis did not determine priority for full season tickets. In- stead, top priority was given to those individuals who had purchased the most consecutive years of season tick- ets. Regardless of how long fans waited, the amount of attention and the number of tickets sold bided well for a program on the rise. As Kim said when summarizing the whole episode, " I don ' t care how long I have to wait, as long as I get to see the future National Champions in ac- tion.

Inside Sports 405 Michigan Olympians Uo. and coaches strike gold in Barcelona m he 1992 Summer Olym- pics were an outstanding success for American ath- letes and the entire world community. Among those enjoy- ing the accolades were seven current or former University of Michigan athletes: Erik Namsnik, Gustavo Borges, Royce Sharp, Mike Barrowman, Brian Deimer, Penny Neer, and Kent Ferguson. The Wolverine Olympians stood out in swimming, diving, and track and field, netting several medals. Competing in his second Olym- pic games, Mike Barrowman not only turned in a gold medal perfor- mance in the 200 meter breaststroke, but also broke the world record for the sixth time in his career. And he finally triumph- ed over what was, for him, a disappointing fourth place finish at the Seoul games in 1988. Although several of the Michigan athletes began training for the 1996 games in Atlanta immediately following their time in Barcelona, Barrowman said he would not be headed to Georgia " unless the Americans can ' t come up with another breaststroker or I have some in- credible desire. " In addition to the athletes, two Michigan coaches headed U.S. teams. Michigan diving coach, Dick Kimball, coached his third Olympic diving team and Wolver- ine swim coach, Jon Urbanchek, made his debut as an Olympic head coach. Urbanchek was an assistant coach for the U.S swim team in 1984 and 1988. He said, " Coach- ing a team with five Michigan athletes was fun. It was like being at home. " He added that the ' 92 team was, " the best I ever coached. The swimmers were very congenial and got along great together. " Under his direction, U.S. swimmers brought home a total of twenty- seven medals. Although all of the competitors attended Michigan, one did not represent the United States in the competition. Gustavo Borges rep- resented his native country, Brazil in the 100 meter freestyle. AMichi- gan student majoring in economics, Gustavo headed for Barcelona to do the 100 in under fifty seconds. " Any sort of medal would be amaz- ing for me, " he said prior to the games. He took away a silver. When not competing in their events, athletes and coaches en- joyed the opportunity to explore Barcelona. " It will be hard for At- lanta to top Barcelona, " said Urbanchek. He participated in both the Los Angeles and Seoul games. " LA. was like home, and although Seoul was a different environment, it could not compare to Barcelona, where there was always something exciting and interesting.

Terry Mills who returned to the floor he played on as a collegiate. Mills was a member of Michigan ' s 1989-1990 NCAA championship team. This time he made his debut as a Detroit Piston, signing as a free agent during the off-season. Mills, the last Piston introduced prior to the tip-off, re- ceived a long standing ovation from the 8,000 fans in attendance. Mills was not the only person to make a debut that night at Crisler. Ron Rothstein made his coaching debut as the Piston ' s new head coach. Rothstein took over for Chuck Daly, who spent the summer coaching the USA Olympic " dream " team in Barcelona, Spain, before becoming the new head coach of the Nets this season. Daly was making his first appearance against his former play- ers and assistants. The game itself provided great excitement for those in attendance. The two teams stood in sharp con- trast to one another. The Pistons were one of the oldest teams in the league, but they still had the nucleus that won back-to-back champion- ships in 1988-1989 and 1989-1990. All stars, Joe Dumars and Isiah Tho- mas hoped to lead the team, as they made one final run at the champion- ship. The Nets were one of the youngest teams in the league, and hoped to establish themselves as a playoff caliber team. Nets guard, Kenny Anderson, electrified the crowd with quick, slashing moves to the hoop. Anderson began to live up to the potential th at was heaped upon him as the 2 overall in the NBA draft. The most exciting part of the evening, came with 9 minutes left in the second quarter. Piston hold-out forward, Dennis Rodman rose to the applause of most of the crowd. He arrived wearing street clothes and sporting shades. He sat down on the Piston bench to watch the game. At one point, with three minutes to play in the half, teammate and Piston captain, Isiah Thomas attempted to get Rodman to join his teammates on the floor. He rolled the ball over towards Rodman, and beckoned him to join them on the floor. Rodman refused to acknowledge the gesture, as he allowed the ball to roll harm- lessly down the court. At the half, Rodman left as quickly and mysteri- ously as he appeared. Before leaving, however, Rodman sought the advice of his former coach, Daly. The secret meeting went on for several minutes. Neither would describe what was said, however, after the game Daly said, " I would like to see him play again in the NBA, but I don ' t know if it ' ll be real soon. I hope after our conversa- tion it will be. " The second half proved to be a blowout, as the Nets pulled awa with the lead. By the end of the thin quarter, the Nets held a 97-76 leadj During the fourth quarter, they add to this lead. They won with a fina score 115-87.

Some go to extreme lengths to satisfy their culinary appetite, with catered meals and pic- C rammed into twenty-by- ten-foot parking spaces with their barbecues and beer, tailgaters of all walks of the earth got ready for the football game. They flocked to campus each au- tumn from distant corners of the country - a pilgrimage to see their Wolverines in action. They began this weekly trek in the first sum- mery days of the season and contin- ued to return despite the cold, rain, and even snow of the last part of the autumn. They came not only to enjoy the great football tradition, but also to take part in the pre- game festivities, which were legend in their own right. Many of the tailgaters were alumni or their families. They re- turned each weekend to enjoy the game, and renewed old friendships. Bruce Campbell, class of ' 54, met with Bill Baumburger, class of ' 54, prior to every game. They were roommates their first year. " We ' ve come to these games as students, or alumni for the last forty years, " Campbell said. No tailgate was complete with- out an abundance of food and drink, beer being the beverage of choice. As you passed the parking lots where the partiers gathered, the aroma of food was almost overwhelming. Kevin Snyder trekked from Toledo, Ohio every weekend to throw a tailgate party before every game. " We tried to throw a spread to- gether that ' s different every week, " Snyder said. Many people had first come to the games as children and the thing they remembered most was not nec- essarily the games they saw but the fun they had before heading into the stadium. This tradition was passed from generation to genera- tion and they got to enjoy the pre- game ritual each week. Erin and Scott Cole, from Delaware, Ohio brought their kids every week, " to be a part of a tradition that has always been a part of our lives, " Cole said. Most people followed the same routine every game. For some it meant bringing the whole family for a barbecue prior to the game. Others brought friends to take part in the festivities. Dave and Jessica Raetsch, of Canton, Michigan, started coming to the games seven years ago, when their kids enrolled at the university. They have fol- lowed the same routine since then. " We wait for the band to come down Hoover Street, then follow it into the stadium to watch the game, " the Raetschs said. However the tradition was played out, you could be certain that the pre-game tailgate celebra- tion would rival the game itself in the amount of fun generated.

Inside Sports 411 nip City The Michigan snow boarding club has fun in the winter by tearing up the snow in the exciting sport of snow boarding. rwo words: snow boarding. One of America ' s fastest growing sports. Snow boarding had developed its own fol- lowing at the University of Michi- gan. Many people might have won- dered what exactly this club did. In fact, most wondered what snow boarding was. Snow boarding was the offspring of several sports. It had traces of surfing, snow skiing, and skateboarding in it. It took various aspects from each of these sports and pooled them together to come up with a new way to enjoy the snow. Snow boarding took surfing onto the snow on a modified surfboard. On it, snow boarders attempted tricks and aerial displays most often attempted on a skateboard. They also use the balance and coordination associated with snow skiing. The club was founded in 1989. The Michigan chapter had over 70 members, up from only 50 two years ago. It was begun by Rick Smick and Brent Cardani so that university snow boarders could take part in competi- tions around the region, and meet others with the same interest. It also allowed members to compete against one another, as well as teach and learn from one another. The club had an executive board comprised of 1 1 club members. Amongst the vari- ous posts were the president, vice- president, trip planner, sponsorship chair, and various other heads that kept the club running smoothly. Matt Hake, a LSA senior, was the presi- dent last year. He said, " We try to keep activities running year round and always try to enter and win as many competitions as possible. " The club allowed its members vari- ous opportunities. Among them were weekly trips to Mount Brighton to practice, and several weekend road trips during the winter to other lo- cales in order to practice and get ready for tournaments and other com- petitions. The club arranged univer- sity participation in contests through- out the Midwest and Canada. Dur- ing the off-season, the club attempted to keep in touch with one another with events such as a volleyball com- petition and a trampoline festival. The club encouraged beginners to join. They had several sessions in which members attempted to teach newcomers the fundamentals. They even had a yearly competition geared especially for beginners. This year, the third annual Blue and Gold Half Pipe competition took place with dozens of beginners competing against skilled veterans. It allowed everyone to compete on an equal footing regardless of how good they were. Everyone who competed came in first. This was accomplished, by emphasizing effort instead of achieve- ment. A newcomer to snow board- ing, Doug Hurst, an LSA sophomore said, " I just started last year, and I ' m already having a great time with the club. " To further help promote the sport, the club had received several en- dorsements from local shops. Also, the club produced a video tape of practice and competition highlights, and put together an end of the year banquet, spotlighting the best per- formances of the year. Industry rep- resentative, David Appel, an L! senior said, " Most importantly, I club attempts to foster an enviro ment in which people c an come gether and enjoy the sport of sn boarding, and the company friends. " This past year had been ano successful one in competition for club. Against other college clu they had managed to place first eral times, and even won several cal tournaments.

He and many other dedicated people spent un- counted hours preparing for the half time show each week. Lewis stated, " The students commit a large amount of time. They are very hard working and disciplined. " Mr. Lewis collected his ideas for the half time show from various sources. Along with his trained staff, another useful idea source was the The band slaps hands in the stadium tunnel before their performance . Band members were a close-knit group of people who often found friends for life during those long hours of practice during the week. students in the band, many of whom are enrolled in a class called Michi- gan Marching Band Tech. This class gave students the opportunity to cre- ate their own half time show, some of which were the artfully choreo- graphed numbers enjoyed by over 100,000 people as half time en- tertainment at the football games. The band practiced Monday through Saturday. Typically, mem- bers dedicated ten to twenty hours per week preparing for the Saturday show. Sophomore Andria Kraus, a member of the Flag Corps for two years, believed, " Although it takes a great deal of time, it ' s worth it in the long run! " Junior Ted Towers agreed. He stated, " Yeah, it takes away timewise. But by the time I get home from practice, my mind is fresh and my studying time is more efficient. Being a member of the band has taught me discipline and communi- cation skills. Best of all, I ' ve made friendships that will last a lifetime! " As in the past, the band had dif- ferent section leaders. Doug Treder, a senior, was the saxophone section leader. He said, " I meet with my group one half hour before actual practice. We review moves and make f m . adjustments. I have to make sure they are in tune during practice, and on game days. " Doug says that he was a spiritual leader. " I know them all very well. They are all great friends, and we all get along. It ' s great to be part of an organization that accom- plishes so much! " The ' 92 half time shows used var- ied and exotic themes. These novel ideas included: an Olympic fanfare; a tribute to the big bands and their era; a review of James Bond title songs; and a tribute to Elton John. Their hours of practice mostly go unnoticed. But what happens on the field each Saturday is reward enough: applause from 100,000 plus satisfied Michigan Band fans.

Inside Sports 41 5 athletics provide students with oppportunities to play and star in games Each year Michigan students had the opportunity to act out their athletic fantasies in competitive play. The Michigan Intramural Department attempted to accommodate thousands of amateur athletes in dozens of sports. The types of sports offered for competition varied greatly. Some intramural sports included: three on three and five on five basketball, Softball, table tennis, tennis, swim- ming and diving, racquetball, and ice hockey. These were only a few of the many sports offered year round. Some of the more popular sports, such as: flag football, basketball, and volley- ball attracted more people. All the sports though, shared one common denominator, all participants put forth tremendous amounts of effort in their attempts to win. The basic format of most of the sports was that games and matches were played over a season that lasted several weeks. The leagues were di- vided according to the level of play so as to keep the games competitive. In most sports, there were several independent and fraternity leagues in which they could participate. Some teams included members from ROTC, and some of the residence halls. Teams could be formed simply by paying the entry fee, and putting togeth er a team. Teams approached competitive play in several different manners. Some teams deemed it necessary to practice on their own prior to league play, while others simply showed up at the athletic site at game time. As Dan Lee, a junior engineering stu- dent who was participating in the five on five basketball tournament, said, " I always try to keep an open mind prior to every game, but when I get on the court, I play to win. " Following weeks of season play, the play-offs began in each of the different leagues. The play-offs were structured to match up teams and individuals with had similar records in the regular season of play. Teams would meet in the play-offs in a single elimination game, with the winner or winning team advancing to the next round, and the loser or losing team going home. This continued, until a champion was victorious in each of the divisions. Not every sport had a multi week season or tournament. Some intra- mural sports and events were con- cluded in the course of a weekend or one day. Some of these events in- cluded the basketball free throw and three point contest, the swimming and diving competition, and the pre season volleyball tournament. In each of these sports, the winner, or winning team would be declared by the end of the next day, or even by the end of that night. Most players welcomed the op- portunity to showcase their talents in competitive play. They were given a chance to see if all the training and practice at the CCRB or IM Building was worth it or not. John Thorton, an LSA junior said, " All those hours of sweat and toil at the gym begin to show their worth when you make a great play in the IM tournament. " Danny Wong, an LSA j unior summed up the idea behind intramural sports best when he said, " you really learn to appreciate everything athletes must go through to maintain and promote their level of play. It ' s hard enough for us, and we are only doing this in our spare time. Winning a tournament would be great, but as long as I get to play, I am happy.

One of the most poignant issues surround- ing college athletics today revolves around the ambiguity of many of the NCAA ' s rules. What may be seen as falling under a rule ' s guidelines by one party may be seen by the NCAA as extending beyond the realm of the rule ' s limitations. As a result of this ambigu- ity, instances of possible rules infractions have arisen. This past summer, the men ' s basketball team got a first-hand look at the ambiguity of some NCAA policies when Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, and Eric Riley temporarily lost their eligibility as a result of possible rules violations. The alleged violations stemmed from $300 that Webber, Rose, and Riley received to appear in a benefit to help raise money for a young boy in need of an opera- tion. Under NCAA laws, an athlete can " accept legitimate and normal expenses " for participating in a charitable event. What drew concern of a possible violation was not that they got paid but rather that the $300 may have been beyond " legitimate and normal " expenses. The charge of other violations soon followed as it was discovered that several players, including Webber, Rose, and Riley, had been paid to lecture at various summer camps, which is not permitted by the NCAA. However, Coach Steve Fisher pointed out that " This kind of stuff is done all over the country. It wasn ' t the first instance where student athletes were involved (in such violations) yet nothing ever came from that. " Another alleged violation came with the disclosure that more than one Wolverine had appeared together at sports camps in violation of the NCAA rule limiting appearances at camps to one athlete per team. What resulted was an internal review by the University ' s athletic department on the basketball program. Fisher said, " I checked up on this from top to bottom before the players participated. We don ' t think any rule was broken or else we wouldn ' t have let them participate (in the charity benefit). " The three ' s eligibility was taken away as a decision was awaited from the NCAA, but they were able to practice with the team. Despite not knowing if they could play, both Webber and Riley said, " We never really thought about it. It really didn ' t affect us. " The NCAA eligibility staff restored the eligibility of Webber, Rose, and Riley before the start of the season, concluding that " the actions of the University were sufficient. " (They did repay the $300.) The NCAA acknowledged that receiving payment for lecturing at camps was not permissible under NCAA legislation, but it has become a common belief by coaches across the country that such actions were permissible so no punitive measures would be taken on the Wolverines. However, having more than one player at camps and misapplying NCAA rules about charity events were treated as secondary- violations while no decision had be en reached. Steps are currently being taken to clarify rules such as these so that they are more explicit. As Riley said, " They still didn ' t tell us exactly what the rule is. " Webber added, " Right now, there ' s a grey area. I hope they get more specific so more people won ' t get into the mess we got into. " Until then, all that can be done is greater care on behalf of everyone involved in college athletics. " I checked up on this from Steve Fisher top to bottom before the Coach players participated. We UM Men ' s Basketball don ' t think any rule was broken or else we wouldn ' t have let them participate.

In 1 992 they were Cinderella with an attitude. They were young and brash and put Ann Arbor back on the basketball map. In 1993, everyone knew who they were and every team was out to gun them down; and they were still unstoppable. Michigan basketball surprised the hoops-crazy world last March, as the Fab Five and Wolverine veterans rode the wave of momentum into the NCAA Championships. The 1 993 cagers faced a different task than the previous year ' s squad: Big Ten basketball was king of the mountain and the Wolverines hoped to capture the crown. Out of the eleven teams in the Big Ten, eight teams had cracked the Associated Press ' Top 25 poll. The traditional football powerhouse conference had laced up some hightops and took to the basketball court. With Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, and Purdue staking a claim in the AP top ten, the Big Ten Conference was a battleground for some of the nation ' s finest athletes. Michigan, of course, also had some decent athletes. While Michigan ' s NCAA tournament run of the previous season had made Fab Five a household word and helped mold the combination of talented veterans and freshmen into a strong unit, Coach Steve Fisher and his crew of Wolverines had to work hard to play down the individual match-ups. Assistant Coach Perry Watson said, " We can ' t really identify with that one player. Glenn (Robinson) is the one star player for Purdue, but I think Glenn would love to have a Juwan Howard, Jalen Rose, and J immy King along with him. That ' s a luxury that we have, a burden that Chris (Webber) doesn ' t have to carry alone. People want to make it a one-on-one battle, but it ' s not that way. " The sophomore-laden Wolverine squad was touted as number one in the nation early in the season, and Big Ten champion Indiana claimed the 1 national ranking as March approached. The athletic prowess of the Big Ten hoopsters took a plunge after the Big Two, but surprising teams like Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin helped keep the national spotlight in the Midwest. A young Ohio State team surprised the l ranked Hoosiers in late February, knocking Indiana off its Big Ten unbeaten path. " I t j ust goes to show how strong our conference is, " said LSA sophomore Ray Jackson. " Everybody ' s been underestimating the strength of our conference, but it is the best in the nation. " Michigan and Indiana were clearly the class of the league, but there was hardly a dearth of professional scouts in the stands of other Big Ten contests. Indiana ' s senior forward Calbert Cheaney succeeded Michigan ' s Glen Rice as the all-time Big Ten scoring leader on his way to All-American status. Robinson, Purdue ' s talented sophomore, was forced to sit out his rookie season because of academic difficulties, but his impact in the Big Ten standings was immediately felt. Iowa suffered through the death of starting forward Chris Street, but the Hawkeyes rode the shoulders of menacing Acie Earl and his shot-blocking skills into the NCAA tournament.

How many of us will forever remember the lingering image of our basketball leader, Chris Webber, calling that fateful timeout with eleven ticks on the clock and the game in our hands? The Fab Five, one of the greatest chapters in basketball history, arrived with an invincible aura and battled the critics and opponents to two NCAA Final Fours in the last two years, but came away with tears and broken hearts each time. They were labelled " under-achievers " by the critics and " trash-talkers " by others, but if under-achieving meant two championship games in two years while opponents sat home in April, then that label ' s intent fell short. No, there was no replacement for the national championship, the claim of 1 that the nation for the most part was not eager for us to hold. We must remember that the level of basketball we witnessed from a core of five sophomores and a supporting cast of mostly seniors ranked among the best in the history of basketball. North Carolina edged our talented Wolverines 77-71 for the NCAA Championship, but they could not stamp out the pride the University of Michi- gan students and athletes gained. The Wolverines were considered lucky to make it as far as the Final Four, after surviving close encounters against UCLA and Temple, and Michigan ' s ability to survive the Kentucky Wildcat express was questioned. Webber and his cohorts decided to take the court Belou " : The look of Ail- American Chris Webber and millions of the viewers after his call for a phantom fourth time-out with eleven seconds left helped the Tar Heels to the national title. against the favored Wildcats anyway the grins and emotional behavior of games past were replaced by the game faces that showed the Wolverines ' intent to earn their place in history. Ray Jackson jump-started the maize and blue by swishing a three-pointer and Michi- gan completed perhaps its best five minutes of basket- ball this season with a 14-7 edge on the way to a 40-35 halftime lead. The inside game of Webber and Juwan Howard built a ten-point UM lead with 12:40 remaining in the game, but the referees decision to let the players play allowed Kentucky to claw its way back into the contest. Trail- ing 76-72 in overtime with their season slipping away, the Wolverines looked within their hearts. When Kentucky star Jamal Mashburn fouled out, Jalen Rose, Jackson, and Webber (game high 27 points) took advantage by leading Michigan to an emotional 81-78 victory and a berth in the championship game against North Carolina. Battling for the coveted NCAA National Champi- onship on the traditional first Monday night of April, the Wolverines rode their strength of their bench early on, as senior Rob Pelinka nailed consecutive three- pointers on the way to a 23-13 UM lead.

After numerous UM chances to tie the score, Jimmy King stole the ball and finshed with a tomahawk jam which knotted the score at 56-56. Webber ' s alley-oop jam gave the Wolverines their first lead of the half with eight minutes remaining. Trailing 73-71 with twenty seconds left, the Fab Five dramatized the intense pressure and expectations of the National Championship. With the game in our leader ' s hands and time standing still, our title hopes washed away leaving the taste of salty tears in our mouths as the fateful timeout call was made. The tears were bittersweet, but the poetic display of talent and heart we witnessed on a basketball court can never be washed away.

Frustration. Yes indeed, a bit of an understatement. It was more like the knotted lump embedded firmly in your throat as the clock ticked away at the final seconds of another loss. " Now, it ' s just a feeling of numbness, " LSA senior and co-captain Nikki Beaudry said, following Michigan ' s 82-62 weekend loss at Illinois. At the head of the frustration, bitterness, and numbness was first-year head coach Trish Roberts. Roberts entered the season sporting an enviable .719 winning percentage over a four year span at the University of Maine. She readily discarded her past accomplishments, zeroing in on the task at hand - making M ichigan a winner. She set her sights high. " Our goal right now is to have a winning record at the end of the season, " Roberts said before Michigan ' s first game. The Wolverines were paced by All- American candidate Trish Andrew, who set Michigan career marks in rebounding and shot blocking this season. She also was rapidly nearing the same mark in scoring. Roberts hoped to combine Andrew ' s talent with a new running attack to bring her team into the middle of the Big Ten Conference standings this season. At one point, the Wolverines sported a 1 - 1 8 record, and remained 0-10 in the Big Ten. " Right now, we just want to win one game. Just Battling for the rebound against Purdue , first-year player Jennifer Brzezinski crashes the offensive boards. Brzezinski was a casualty of the wave of injuries which crippled the Michigan roster. one, that ' s all, " Andrew sighed after a mid- season loss. The transition between coaches and their respective styles helped stymie Michigan ' s performance. " Any time there is change, the transition period is either going to be short or long, " Roberts said. " Our ' s has been long, and I don ' t feel our kids adjusted to the demands we put on them. Not only the demands of practice, but also the discipline wasn ' t there in the past. " " After the first week of practices, we all said to each other that we felt like freshmen again, " LSA sophomore forward Shimmy Gray sai d. " We have had to change so many things about our game, both inside and out, and we still are. " Although they executed a vastly up-paced offense over previous years, ran largely by senior co-captain Stacie McCall and senior three-point threat Jen Nuanes, the Wolverines were hampered by a flurry of season-ending injuries. Those who remained healthy had little opportunity for reprieve from action. As each game progressed, it seemed fatigue more than anything took its toll on Michigan ' s won-loss percentage. " Coach pulls us in after the games and congratulates us on the fact that we are executing the plays, " LSA junior Nuanes said. " It seems as though we are learning. I think she sees the progress. We see the progress. Right now, we ' re still really frustrated we ' re not getting a win.

One of the credos of Michigan sports was that " champions were made in practice. " Needless to say, of those sports that had flourished at Michi- gan for a long time - football, basketball, and others - practice was often the most important aspect of the season. This was certainly the case for the Wolverine women ' s swim team. For the Michigan swimmers, another season of high achievement went along with extensive train- ing and conditioning, which ensured that the race was halfway won before the gun had even sounded. The Wolverine tankers were well on their way to another outstanding season by February, with an 8-4 overall record and first-place fin- ishes in each of their invitational meets. For the traditionally strong swimmers, however, team and individual achievements early in the season were of less importance than overall cohesion, top-notch conditioning, and gathering momen- tum for the important events later in the year: the Big Ten championships and the NCAAs. " The year ' s been going pretty well; we ' ve had a lot of people swim better than last year, and we ' re in a position to perform much better, " noted Coach J im Richardson. Richardson, how- ever, was concerned less with the team ' s meet performances than with the overall condition of his athletes. " You ' ve got to be sure to train properly and give the swimmers the opportunity to rest, " added Richardson. " That ' s the key: if you ' ve done that, then the real work has already been done. " Senior tri-captainJenniferZakrajsak said, " The whole foundation is conditioning - it ' s a training sport. " The large amounts of training the team un- derwent, both in and out of the pool - including a great deal of aerobic and anaerobic workouts around winter break - made for a grueling sched- ule for the athletes. The many challenges - intense workouts, long road trips, and intan- gibles that came with the burden of carrying the Michigan tradition - helped steel the squad, both mentally and physically, for the important " second season. " " This is one of the toughest teams that I ' ve been on, " said Zakrajsek. " We really work well with each other and have stayed focused throughout. " Despite losing five starters from last year ' s squad, the Wolverines were well ahead this year in qualifying individuals for NCAA events. " We ' re doing different things than last year, " said senior tri-captain Mindy Gehrs. " We don ' t have as much depth, having lost some of our sprinters, but we ' re fine for all the longer dis- tances. " Michigan was strong in the backstroke and breaststroke with Lara Hooiveld and Alecia Humphrey, the individual medley with Humphrey and Gehrs, and the 200- and 500- meter freestyles with Kirsten Silvester and Kathy Diebler. The climax of a trying year came in the Big 10 championships and NCAA finals. " The Big 10 ' s is like a six-team dual meet - everyone tries to outdo one another, " said Zakrajsak. But, as in years past, the swimmers had confidence in their efforts, and in their usual secret weapon - the Michigan tradition. " Everyone wants to knock us out, " said Gehrs. " But that same feeling can help us out in the end. " The Michigan tradition, a mark of pride for the women swimmers and a symbol of power to their opponents, was evident once again in another powerful display of Wol- verine swimming.

For the last seven years, one thing quickly came to mind upon mentioning the men ' s swim team - Big Ten Champs. In each of the last seven years, the team raced through the Big Ten sea- son and touched in as the conference ' s top team. According to Coach John Urbanchek, this year the team should add number eight, for, as he said, " It is the best assemblage of talent at U of M in the last decade. " What made this team so strong was a high talent level, which Urbanchek referred to as " the best assemblage of Who ' s Who in swim- ming. " Included on this year ' s team were several returning All- Americans, several swimmers who swam in the U. S. Olympic Trials, and three Olympic swimmers, including two silver medal- ists. LSA sophomore Gustavo Borges, a silver medalist in the 100-meter freestyle representing Brazil, said, " It was a great experience not many people will have. The pressure at the Olympics was much different and much harder and it made me feel more comfortable now. It will definitely help me at the NCAA ' s. " Having Olympians on the team was an added plus to an already talent-rich team. Urbanchek said, " It ' s just like having Chris Webber on your team. It made everybody step up in practice and put in a little extra effort. " LSA senior Eric Wunderlich, another swimmer at the Olympic Trials, added, " The experience of the biggest meet ever (the Olympics) is going to give the medalist confidence which can be passed along to the rest of the team. " The team had its mind set on a solid NCAA tournament performance across the board, hav- ing the chance for the best performance by a Michigan squad in over a decade. As tri-captain and LSA senior Brian Gunn said, " This year we were trying to refocus and do the best we could at the NCAA ' s. " Nonetheless, despite the team ' s goal of a strong NCAA finish, " It was important that we win it (the Big Ten) along the way. It was something that was very important to us, " added Wunderlich. Urbanchek ' s biggest fear was that the team would become too complacent with its past success. " We could not change from when we first started winning. We needed to keep the same work ethic and attitude and keep the energy channeled to continue the winning tra- dition, " said Urbanchek. However, Gunn felt that Urbanchek would prevent the team from such complacency because of the talented level of swimmers that he had brought in again this year. " If you get complacent with past success, you would get beat by your own teammates. So, you always wanted to improve and make your- self better, " said Gunn. Along with providing intra-squad competi- tion to help avoid complacency from setting in, the team ' s depth from top to bottom served to make the team very strong. Having so many talented swimmers helped to take the pressure off some of the top swimmers, such as Olympic Silver Medalist and senior Eric Namesnik, Wunderlich, and Borges. " There was a lot of good, young, talented kids, so the load was distributed (age-wise) very evenly, " said Wunderlich. " We had someone good in every event, " added Gunn. Loaded with All-Ameri- cans and Olympians, the Wolverine swimming mystique seemed to be enough to topple the most worthy of opponents off the starting blocks.

ICE WARRIORS The senior hockey players helped make hockey exciting again at Yost, and returned a traditional hockey powerhouse back to to national prominence. Every so often in a sport, a moment occurrs that defines the progress of a group of athletes. For David Harlock, Mark Ouimet, Patrick Neaton, David Roberts, Dan Stiver, and Chris Tamer, six seniors on the ice hockey team, this moment came on January 30, 1993. At Joe Louis Arena, before a crowd of 18,275 - the largest ever to witness a regular season college hockey game - the Wolverines handed arch-rival Michigan State an 11-1 defeat which many in attendance agreed was " not even that close. " For the seniors on the team, this utter domination was made even more meaningful by the memory of an 11 -4 drubbing they suffered at the hands of the Spartans as first- year students in 1989. As one of the defensemen, LSA senior Chris Tamer put it, the rout of State " showed the turning of the tide. " Times had certainly changed during the senior class ' s stay in Ann Arbor. As first- year students, the class of ' 93 often played before sparse, quiet crowds at Yost Arena. For home games against Michigan State, the situation was often worse. Unable to obtain tickets to see their Spartans play at home, State fans gobbled up seats for the games against Michigan at Yost, creating home sellouts that were decidedly hostile to the Wolverines. By the 1992-1993 season, Yost was nearly always packed, and some vocal crowds turned it into one the most hostile collegiate rinks in the country. " There has been a drastic change in the crowd since we were freshmen. The crowd has really developed its own character, " said forward and LSA senior David Roberts, referring to the chants of " C-Ya, " and " Sieve, " that followed each opponent ' s penalty and Michigan goal, respectively. The significance of a strong home-ice advantage was not lost on the senior class. Tamer evaluated the importance of playing at home by simply saying, " The home crowds have been a big factor in our success. They really get us into the game. " However, the team ' s lofty ambitions were not fulfilled by one glorious victory over the Spartans. The six Wolverine senior icers made progress towards an elusive National Collegiate Athletic Association Champion- ship during each of their first three years in Ann Arbor. After having been snubbed by the tournament selection committee in 1990, they reached the national quarter-finals in 1991, and the national semi-finals in 1992. This group of seniors was determined to leave the University of Michigan on top. " It has been a goal of ours all year to get back to the final four and do better than last year, " said Roberts. Even after their Michigan careers had ended, these seniors could leave Ann Arbor with the knowledge that they had, in a short time, returned to national prominence a college hockey program with a more glorious history than any other. " We were all a part of building a tradition, " said LSA senior Pat Neaton, " each of us made a major contribu- tion in helping the program go from one that didn ' t make the CCHA final four [in 1989] to one that made the NCAA final four [in 1991]. " Tamer and Roberts hoped that the team would continue the tremendous progress marked by the class of ' 93. In forecasting the following seasons, they agreed that, " If people step up and play important roles the program ' s future will be very bright indeed.

DortS s431 Wbi n Michig ICE n icers toppled by Maine in th NCAA semi-finals A A fter barely a minute and a half of overtime, it was over. The University of Maine ' s Lee Saunders had just chipped a rebound past Michigan goaltender Steve Shields to propel Maine into the 1993 NCAA title game, and send the Wolverines back to Ann Arbor. Despite a heroic effort by Michi- gan against a Maine team that came into the game with a remarkable 40-1-2 record, the season had come to an end in the national semi-final for the second consecu- tive year. Said Shields of the Maine game, " They were the better team on this day. " Despite the fact that for the first time in four seasons they had not gone further in the NCAA tournament than they had the year prior, the 1992-1993 season could not be considered anything but a success. " We have nothing to hang our heads about, " proclaimed Michigan coach Red Berenson immediately following the season- ending defeat. " I ' m tremendously proud of these kids. " The 1992-1993 campaign began full of promise, as Michigan was ranked first in a variety of pre-season polls. Al- though they stumbled slightly out of the gate, - v holding a 3-2-2 record after seven conference games, Michigan gained momentum throughout the year, winning or tying all but five games the remainder of the season to finish at 30-7-3. Included in this stretch was a 14 game span which saw Michigan outscore its opponents by a composite total of 1 19-24. Though his two previous teams had posted higher victory totals, Coach Berenson praised this year ' s squad for it ' s consistency, especially in the second half of the season. On the eve of the Maine contest he said quite simply, " This is the strongest team I have ever had at Michigan. " Though they fell two victories short of their goal of a national championship, the bitter disappointment the team felt after the loss to Maine could not diminish the accomplishments of the season. The program reached the thirty victory plateau for the third consecutive season, a feat never before accomplished in the rich history of Michigan hockey. Included among the thirty triumphs were such highlights as an 11-1 shellacking of arch-rival Michigan State before a near-capacity crowd at Joe Louis Arena, and a 4-3 overtime victory against Wisconsin in the opening game of the NCAA tourna- ment. Michigan ' s victory over Wisconsin avenged Michigan ' s painful loss to the Badgers in the 1992 national semi-final, and set the stage for the dramatic tournament loss to Maine. In addition, the Christmas holiday saw the Wolverines claim an unprecedented fifth consecutive Great Lakes Invitational Tournament title, also at " the Joe. " Perhaps the greatest consolation that Michigan could take away from their 1993 NCAA tournament experience was that they had finally answered lingering questions about the team ' s character and heart.

The over-time win over Wisconsin in the national quarter- final put an end to all that. " I think that today we answered a lot of questions about Michigan ' s heart and determination, " said senior captain David Harlock. The thrilling 4-3 win saw Michigan rally twice from one-goal deficits in the closing stages of the third period before notching the victory on an overtime tally by senior David Roberts. And although they were put away by Maine, it was not because of any character deficit. " We did everything we could to win, " said Berenson of the effort. Successes at the individual level stood out as well. Junior goaltender, Steve Shields, and senior defenseman, Pat Neaton were named Central Collegiate Hockey Association first team all-stars. Neaton, along with fellow seniors David Roberts and Mark Ouimet were selected to play for the West team in the first annual East-West Shrine game following the season.

Little did we know back in late-July of 1992 as we sat in a yearbook conference room in the Harvey Hotel outside Dallas, Texas, that the casual theme-idea thrown out by Photo Editor Greg Emmanuel would be so relevant to the approaching school year in Ann Arbor. Usually, a yearbook theme reflects the spirit of the year, the campus, the times. But, as we saw it, the low turn-outs during MSA elections, the relatively passive acceptance of an armed campus police force, and a general decline in the student activism which has characterized our university in the past indicated that the trend in Ann Arbor tended toward apathy. We determined that, instead of a theme that reflected the campus and the year, we wanted one that would inspire people now and in the years to come. We wanted something that would lead people to take a stand, speak their minds, " raise their voices, " Greg said. And so our theme was born. The " Raise Your Voice " theme became even more pertinent as, during the course of the year, the administration enacted the " Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities " , a non-academic code of conduct, and the " Policy for Scheduled Use of the University of Michigan Designated Outdoor Common Areas " , a policy mandating administrative approval and limiting, among other things, size, duration, and sound levels of gatherings on University common areas such as the Diag. Many complained that the administration ' s new policies dangerously threatened student expression. But despite the valiant effort put forth by critics of both the Code and the Diag policy, student mobilization was limited. Too many students were ignorant or ambivalent or both about the new policies. We originally intended to inspire self-expression with the " Raise Your Voice " theme by presenting some issues on which most people have opinions. Here, we want to make our message clear. We are not simply criticizing the administration ' s new policies. We are making an appeal to the students who these policies affect. Speak now, if not to express yourself on some current issue or another, at least to preserve your right to say your peace when you are ready. Care. Take note. Raise your voice.
