Bill Frieder, Michigan's assistant
basketball coach for the last seven
years, yesterday became the 12th head
coach in Wolverine history.
The appointment of Frieder, 38, was
announced at a late afternoon press
conference at Crisler Arena, which was
followed by an annual year-end banquet
for the 1979-80 Michigan squad and
THE NAMING of Frieder as head
coach, which was approved by the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics earlier yesterday, came as no
surprise. Athletic Director Don
Canham said last week that Frieder
was a prime candidate for the post,
which was vacated by the popular
Johnny Orr, who has taken the head
coaching spot at Iowa State University.
Frieder thanked Canham for giving
him the top coaching spot "which is like
a dream come true for me. There's
nothing quite like coaching at the
University of Michigan," he said.
Frieder had received several head
coaching offers during his tenure as
Michigan's assistant cage coach, but
turned all of them down. In 1976, for
example, Fordham University wooed
his services but after considerable
thought, Frieder chose to stay with the
"I was going to take the job at For-
dham," recalled Frieder. "I flew to
New York and took a cab ride to For-
dham. But it wasn't Michigan. It didn't
have the class Michigan has. It didn't
have the people Michigan has.
Michigan is the greatest.".
THE FORDHAM experience was
repeated more than once for Frieder,
Time and again, he said, he compared
the schools interested in him to
Michigan, and chose to "wait it out."
"I decided a couple years ago to stay
at Michigan until Orr left," Frieder
said. "I knew it might be five or six
years. If I didn't get the job after that,
then I was going to do something else."
Canham expressed confidence that
Frieder will maintain the winning
tradition established during Orr's 12-
"WE ARE extremely pleased to have
Bill Frieder in charge of our basketball
program at Michigan," said Canham.
"He is a tireless worker and one of the
finest basketball strategists in the Big
Ten today. He certainly deserves the
opportunity to coach this team."
The athletic director denied that, a
few seasons back, he promised Frieder.
the head coaching job upon Orr's
departure. "He (Frieder), asked me,
'Would I be one of the two or three can-
didates which you would consider?' I
answered 'Yes.' I probably answered
him, 'You're at the top of the list.' But I
didn't promise him a job.
Frieder's dedication and intensity
have won him a large group of admir-
ers. In addition he has been an invalu-
able asset to Orr in game situations and
"HE'S WORKED under John during
the seven most successful years in
Michigan basketball," Canham said.
"He's a great bench coach."
Frieder does not anticipate any
drastic changes in the Wolverines' style
of play next season. "We'll adjust our

U.S. expeets hostage plan today
From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Carter's
press secretary hinted yesterday that
an Iranian government announcement
might come today on removing the
=pierican hostages in Tehran from con-
Crol of student militants. There were
also indications Carter was ready to
take new action should this not occur.
Carter spokesman Jody Powell said
the president will "make an ap-
propriate statement to the American
people" following the anticipated word
POWELL REPORTED that Iran's
Revolutionary Council has been in "ex-
tended session" for the past two days.
"There are reports that the
Revolutionary Council has addressed
the question of the transfer of control of
the hostages to the government of Iran,
and there are reports that President
Abolhassan Bani-Sadr is scheduled to
make a statement tomorrow."
The White House spokesman also
said Carter, after postponing a
scheduled speech, met w th his national
security advisers and with key
congressional leaders to advise them of
developments. It was learned the
meeting with security officials dealt
with possible new moves toward Iran.
HOWEVER, a spokesman for the
Moslem militants occupying the em-
bassy said, "There is no plan to move

The hostages will be here until the shah
is returned - as we have always said."
And a spokesman for Iran's Foreign
Ministry told UPI in London by
telephone that the Washington Post
report "is not true. That plan for the
Americans is left over from a few mon-
ths ago. It is not about to be implemen-
The only development that appeared
certain, as reported by the BBC, was
that Bani-Sadr met with "student
leaders" and will make an announ-
cement concerning the hostages today.
In Cairo, a doctor said the deposed
shah of Iran's cancer had spread to his
liver. Doctors last Friday removed the
shah's dangerously enlarged spleen. It
was the shah's admission to the United
States for treatment of his cancer,
despite the opposition of the new
regime, that triggered the Nov. 4 em-
bassy takeover in Tehran.

University Vice-President and Chief
Financial Officer James Brinkerhoff
yesterday ruled out the possibility that
the University would fund more than
half of the projected $30,000 ceiling cost
for the renovation of the Fishbowl.
He added that no University funds
would be allocated to the project if the
Michigan Student Assenbly failed to
approve its portion of the funding.
"With the indication that the project
was not flying too well (with MSA
members)," Brinkerhoff said, "I said
'Come back and see me when you have
a project that (MSA) supports'."
MSA ECONOMIC Affairs Coor-
dinator Brad Canale and Special
Projects Coordinator J.P. Adams met
with Brinkerhoff yesterday to discuss
the possibility of the University funding

Canale and Adams approached the

A Daily News Analysis
With the April 8 and 9 Michigan
Student Assembly general elections
rapidly approaching, candidates are at-
tempting to communicate their
positions on various campaign issues to
the student body. All too often,
however, students are asked to vote for
a candidate who advocates spending X
number of MSA dollars on project Y,
while the voter has little or no concep-
tion of the history or possible impact of

debated MSA campaign issues this
Some candidates cite student apathy
and ignorance, of MSA as one of the
major failings of the current Assembly;
many envision increased student
awareness and participation in student;
government as a high priority and im-
portant goal for the next Assembly.
Two central problems are at issue:
Students by and large know little about
the internal workings of their student
government, to which they pay an an-
nual stipend; and, students aren't
aware that MSA can use its power to try
to resolve problems students may have
with the University community.
Some candidates also say that MSA
must get more student input into their
key decisions - primarily those on how
to spend student funds. Two candidate
proposals to aid the Assembly in these
tasks are: Bringing some MSA
meetings to dorms (and possibly
fraternities, sororities, and co-ops),
and moving the starting time of some
MSA meetings back to allow an extra
hour of student comments.
A forum between various student
leaders on campus, some candidates
say, is the only effective way to keep
MSA abreast of all the issues that con-
cern students. Such a forum, the Inter-
College Student Government Coalition,
was established in the fall of this year
but essentially ceased to function due to
an apparent lack of interest. A similar
proposal this year would establish a
"think-tank" composed of renresen-
