The Michigan Daily--Sunday, September 26, 1982-Page 3-

A team chug, a one-minute
marathon, and a nipple-sucking con-
test. The brothers of Theta Delta Chi
had all this and more to offer people at
its 14th annual Beer Olympics party
Friday night. And the 1,500 beer-lovers
who turned out lapped it up.
A $2 admission fee - charged anyone
who wished to enter the temporarily
fenced off lawn of the State Street
fraternity - covered all the beer the
partier could drink, and the live rock
music of Giveaway.
"I can't complain-I've got well
over $2 of beer since I got here," said
LSA freshman Paul Driessche. "I don't
know how they make money.".
Mark Leaman a psychology major
from Michigan State University,
traveled all the way from East Lansing
for the bash. "What the hell - there

was nothing else to do," Leaman said.
Yesterday, the fraternity still didn't
know whether the party had made any
profit. Members said they hoped they'd
break even to cover the cost of 50 kegs
of beer - abut $1,875 - and of the band
and set-up expenses, totalling about
"We're just glad everybody can come
out and have a good time," said
Richard Richardson, organizer of this
year's Olympics. Richardson said that
if there is a profit, the fraternity will
donate it to another organizaion.
"I'D LIKE TO donate the money to
Madeline Pound House," he said. I like
little kids, and would like to see them
with a new swing."
Drinkers at the party who wanted to
pay $2 above the cover price had the
chance to make names for themselves
in the contests. The first, second, and
third place winners in all of the

draws 1,500

categories brought home 18-incn
trophies from the Olympia Beer com-
pany, which helped promote the party
with T-shirts and table coasters.
LSA sophomore Greg Lanesey, a
member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, was the
proud winner of the one-minute
marathon. Lanesey, wfpo guzzled six
glasses of beer in less than a minute-
without spilling a drop, which would
have disqualified him-couldn't quite
keep it down after his runaway victory.
But that didn't stop him. "I'm in the in-
dividual contest later, and I'm going to
win it," he said confidently.
THE THUMPTY Dumps tried to
schedule their Beer Olympics around
the Panhellenic Association's sorority
rush activities, but couldn't work
around the conflicts. "The whole goal of
the party is the interaction of frater-
nities and sororities and to get everyone
else involved," said Brendan Nedzi, a

traternity member majoring in com-
puter science.
But even with the absence of the
sorority sisters involved in rush, the
party had plenty of contestants for its
contest open only to women. LSA
sophomore Shelly McNamara suc-
ceeded in sucking the most beer in
seven minutes from a 12-ounce beer
bottle topped with a nipple. "It's been a
hell of a lot of fun," said McNamara,
who has never participated in a formal
beer-drinking contest. "And I joined at
the last minute, too."
The crowd stayed under control,
although about 500 people gathered
around outside the fence without
paying. "Some people have been trying
to sneak in, but other than that, the
crowd has been excellent," said LSA
sophomore Robert Eustice, another
member of the fraternity.

MENDEL ALSO agreed with the
University policy, but remains distur-
bed by the actions of some faculty
members. "I've felt great sadness for
those students who choose to observe.
Some professors haven't made adjust-
ments, and some even go out of their
way to schedule tests," he said. "This
troubles me very deeply."
Laurel Adelman, an LSA junior,
plans to attend both services and
classes tomorrow. She said the conflict
between classes and religious obser-
vance poses no real problem.
"If a person doesn't go to a class and
misses something really important,
than I don't think it's fair. Usually
though, professors are pretty sym-
pathetic," she said.

peace envoy Phillip Habib has given the
Israeli government what amounts to an
ultimatum that U.S. Marines, will not
enter Beirut until Israeli forces leave, a
high White House official said.
The official, who insisted on
anonymity, acknowledged that the
United States was following a two-track
policy-on track one, saying in public
that the Reagan administration
"hopes" the Israelis will depart by
Sunday; on track two, telling reporters
''you would not be wrong to assume"
that Habib told Israeli officials that
Marines would not go ashore until the
Israelis left.
In Israel, Israeli Defense Ministry
spokesman Uri Dan said after a
meeting of Habib and Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon that reports of such an
ultimatum were "groundless," and at
the State Department, a source who
asked not to be identified advised
reporters "not to put much credence in
BUT THE Italian ambassador to
Lebanon, Franco Lucioli Ottieri, said
his country's forces and U.S. Marines
would not land until Israeli troops left
the Beirut port area. U.S. diplomats in
Beirut would not comment on the issue.
Dan said Israeli troops probably
would be out of Beirut by the second
half of the week. He acknowledged that
'some subjects arose which needed
coordination" in the Habib-Sharon
talks on the deployment of the
Multinational force.
The Israelis have not said if they will
withdraw from east Beirut as well,
despite Habib's ultimatum.
ANOTHER 250 French paratroopers
arrived in Beirut, bringing to 600 the
number of French ingtheicity. The bulk
of the French are positioned at the

French ambassador's residence and a
small unit at the port.
West Beirut was tense following the
shooting death of one Israeli soldier, the
wounding of three others Friday and a
fourth yesterday. Troops clamped a
strict curfew on Beirut and security in
the capital was tight.
In addition, officials said four United
Nations officers were killed when their
car drove over a mine on a mountain
road near the Syrian lines on the out-
skirts of east Beirut.
A U.N. spokesman said the officers
hit the mine on the Mansuriyeh road,
which forms a demarcation line bet-
ween Syrian troops and Israeli forces in
Christian east Beirut.
