Here it is, the Michigan Daily's hand-
book on how to cope with life at the Big
'U.' it is designed, we hope, to acquaint
incoming people with the rigors, frustra-
tions, and joys of University bureaucracy,
who's who in academia, current issues on
and off campus, quirks in the community,
what to do on a Saturday night, and hap-
penings around town.
The supplement is divided into six sec-
tions-General News, Academics, Sports,
Culture, Community, and Student Life.
Read it and we hope that you will enjoy it.
However, despite the blood, sweat, tears
and sleepless nights that went into this
publication there are a few errors which
should be noted. Check the Today Column
on page one of this section for a list of
corrections.
And there are a few people to be thank.

Minorities are given special
preference, though there are no
specific questions on the appli-
cation to determine the race of
the applicant.
Usually the admission coun-
selors determine a studen's
race based on their knowledgel
of the schools the student comes
from. In addition, the question:
concerning the Opportunity Pro-
gram is to pinpaint minority
students.
SWAIN ALSO indicated that
an optional section to the ap-
olication, asking the race of
the applicant, will be added for

In addition to this, a cualified
minority student will be cn-

is received past the February 1,
