State raises drinking age to 21
Despite putting up somewhat of a battle, liquor-serving
establishments and 18-to-20 year olds lost the fight last year
when the state voters boosted the legal drinking age from 18
to 21. "Just because someone said they (students) can't
drink, that doesn't mean they aren't going to," said one
student last year. The penalty for violating the law in Ann
Arbor is usually a five-dollar fine.

State tops
'U' cagers
Earvin "Magic" John-
son, the main attraction of
Big Ten basketball for the
last two years, faces
Michigan forward Thad
Garner during one of the
two matchups between
Michigan and MSU last
year. While University fans
were hoping the Maize and
Blue would take top honors
in the conference last year,
State not only dominated
the Big Ten, but also took
the national honors.
Michigan edged State in
the first meeting, 49-48, but
the Spartans later over-
whelmed the Wolverines,
80-57. "I don't think there is
anybody in the country who
could have beaten them
today," said Michigan
Head Coach Johnny Orr af-
ter the second game.

'U' president
resigns post
University President Robben Fleming, who
held the school's top position for ti years,
stepped down from his post last Jan. 1. "I
have long said that a university should turn
over its top leadership regularly," Fleming
said last September prior to his resignation.
Fleming is currently the president of the Cor-
poration for Public Broadcasting.

Regents' Room
More than 200 members of the
University community, most of
them students, halted the March
Regents meeting after the Board
refused to consider the issue of
University investments in firms
that do business in South Africa.
The demonstrators alleged that a
the companies encourage the
racial discrimination in that
country. The Regents, who were
in recess at the time of the photo,
will likely deal with the issue
again this fall. "Their inability to,
deal with the students is certainly
a victory," said Jemadari
Kamara, a spokesman for the
protesters. I
