In fact, the two are so foot-
ball crazy, they scheduled
their honeymoon for the
week when both their belov-
ed teams would be playing
away games.
At their wedding, the
Cicureos allowed both
schools' fight songs to be
played, but inexplicably, the
Wolverine song was halted
mid-tape.
"My family bleeds green
and white," says Sari, whose
family was probably respon-
sible for shutting down
"Hail to the Victors."
Believe it or not, the
rivalry goes deeper than
that.
"We have disagreements
about where the kids will go
to school," said Sari.
The problem of raising the
next generation of little
Spartans or Wolverines is
perhaps the only serious
complication of a "mixed

marriage." One store, the
Great Divide, accommodates
these couples by offering
children's clothes that sport
both logos, but are divided
down the middle.
Sending their children off
to school won't worry an-
other "mixed marriage"
couple.
"Maybe they'll go to
Yale," said Nathaniel War-
shay, Susan's cousin, and a
fellow U-M fan.

Nathaniel and his wife,
Ida, have been married for
six months. At first, he ad-
mits, the rivalry "was a
touchy subject." But now,
the rivalry is a source of
friendly competition. This
year, Nathaniel will even sit
with his wife in the MSU
section of East Lansing's
Spartan Stadium. But you
won't see him wearing
Wolverine maize and blue.
He'll play it safe and don
neutral red. ❑

Russian Court Rules
With Lubavitch

New York (JTA) — A
three judge panel of the Rus-
sian Supreme Court ruled
last week that the Lenin
Library in Moscow must
turn over to the Chabad
Lubavitch movement some
12,000 books that were con-
fiscated by the Communists
in 1916.
The unanimous decision
was obtained after a
marathon of meetings bet-
ween four Lubavitch rabbis
and various Moscow bu-
reaucrats.
But the order still remains
to be issued in writing, cau-
tioned Rabbi Yehuda Krin-
sky, spokesman for the
Lubavitcher rebbe,
Menachem Schneerson.
That written decision is ex-
pected soon, Rabbi Krinsky
said.
In December, Russian
President Boris Yeltsin
agreed that the entire collec-
tion legally belongs to
Chabad and should be
returned to it. Since then,
the four rabbis have been in
Moscow trying, with the
help of Moscow lawyer
Veronica Irina, to recover
possession of the books.
The rabbis are Boruch
Shlomo Cunin, Los Angeles
Chabad director; Sholom Ber
Levine, another American
and the movement's chief
librarian; Yosef Aronov,
Lubavitch director in Israel;
and Yitzhak Kagan, a
former refusenik once

known as "the tzaddik of
Leningrad," now an Israeli
citizen.
Following 10 months of
wrangling with both Soviet
and Russian officials, the
rabbis were led to believe
that they would finally be
given the books the Friday
before Rosh Hashanah. But
after a day's waiting and
seemingly countless last-
minute discussions among
various high-level officials,
Culture Minister Nikolai
Gubenko ordered that the
books not be released.
Meanwhile, Lubavitch
fears that books from the col-
lection were being pilfered
from the Lenin Library have
been confirmed, Rabbi Krin-
sky said. The fears arose
when some Lubavitch books
were found in the office of a
man removed from his posi-
tion following the aborted
August coup.
And only a week ago, he
said, several Hebrew books
from a valuable 400-year-old
collection were found by a
librarian in a garbage can
near the library. Putting
books in the garbage is
believed to be one method of
surreptitiously removing
books from the library.

According to Rabbi Krin-
sky, one reason behind offi-
cial reluctance to release the
books may well be the fact
that some of the books have
been spirited away.
