Three U-M Students Bare It All: Playboy ' s Big Ten Issue displays U-M students When Tansley Webb, Darby Dickinson and Margaret Chmiel joined the over [ " " one hundred women trying out for a spot to represent Michigan in the Big Ten .!* issue of Playboy Entertainment Magazine, they knew they could be chosen to bare it all. The self proclaimed College Blowout Issue of Playboy was placed on magazine racks in Oct., 1997 and college men of the midwest were among the many to scoop up a copy. Patrons could pick up this special issue for a cover price of $4.95 to gaze at the beauties selected from all eleven of the schools of the Big Ten. As Playboy toured the universities, over 675 women tried out for a spot in the issue by meeting with Playboy representatives in a clothes-on audition. In true Michigan fashion, many women and men on campus formed a protest outside of the hotel where the auditions were being held, to share their views on the issue, | and what they proclaimed to be the exploitation of college women. photo courtesy of ; by Virgina Hiltz October, 1997 photo courtesy of ' fix Michigan Daily U-M Students: A signingwasheld after the I ' luy- boy Big Ten Is- sue was re- leased.

HS Shootings: Youths murder many The spewing forth of violence from the youth of America became a disturbing trend as incidences of shootings of youth by youth occurred all over the nation. Two high school shootings in particular shocked and elicited outcries from the public. In October, bullets rained on the Pearl High population in MS when sixteen-year old Luke Woodham decided to avenge his relationship problems by firing a rifle numerous times in the commons area of the school. The buses were unloading when the shooting began. By the time the firing had ceased, the troubled sophomore had taken the lives of two people, including a former girlfriend. Six other bystanders were injured. The principal and a coach eventually apprehended Woodham while students helped carry injured students inside to wait for medical attention. In a similar and equally troubling exhibition of youth violence in Dec., two young women were killed at Heath High School in West Peducah, KY when Michael Carneal opened fire on his fellow students as a prayer meeting was wrapping up in the school lobby. With a .22 caliber handgun, three spare clips of ammunition, two rifles and two shotguns, the teen acted out a violent fantasy with no apparent motivation. Carneal was charged with murder and attempted murder. Both shootings left friends and family of the injured and murdered students asking " why. " Yet, they knew, despite the justice they may receive, nothinga could ever bring back their sons, daughters and friends. by Jamie Weitzel October 14: A class action lawsuit was filed against the college of ISA, regarding minority pref- erential treatment during the admissions process. October 24: After con- ducting many interviews, Tom Goss surprised ev- eryone by naming Brian Ellerbe as the head coach for men ' s basketball. i i i October 27, 1997 Dow Stocks Drop: Wall Street scare The Dow Jones industrial average suffered its worst single-day point drop in history 7 on Oct. 27, plummeting more than 550 points, a 7 percent decline, before trading was automatically shut down for the rest of the day. The next day the market took a drastic turnaround with a 4. " percent increase, the greatest gain in over a decade making up for 337 points of the original loss. Many were panicked while the stock took a headlong retreat only to turn around the next day in a buying frenzy. This caused many policy makers, corporations and investors to reevaluate the market and question what events were to follow. bv Michelle McCombs photo courtesy of The Mifbign s October 29: Hundreds of students and other MTV fans waited outside of Touchdown Cafe hoping to be cast for " The Real World " or " Road Rules.
