Alumni find new home
on return to campus

Alumni coming back to campus for
Homecoming found that a lot of things
had changed - including the Alumni
Hundreds of University alumni and
officials gathered this weekend for the
formal dedication and ribbon-cutting
ceremonies at the new $3.5 million
Alumni Center, located just north of the
Michigan League.
UNLIKE ITS former home in the
basement of the Michigan Union, the
new center is "a visible reminder of the
interest alumni have in the Univer-
sity," said Harvey Jacobson, acting
vice president for University relations.
Continued alumni participation in the
University was the theme of Friday's
dedication. "Your impact on the
University is extremely important to us
in an ongoing way," President Harold
Shapiro told alumni as he accepted the
presentation of the center.

The center was financed entirely
from donations by University Alumni
Association members and other friends
of the University, according to Bob
Forman, executive director of the
alumni association.
FORMAN , SAID that as the
association expanded, the Union quar-
ters became "too cramped." Construc-
tion on the new center started in Oc-
tober 1980. The association moved into
its new headquarters this August.
Some have misinterpreted the new
center to be an unnecessary expense
during a time of financial trouble at the
University, Forman said. But he
stressed that plans for the building
began a decade ago and that the center
came well within its projected budget.
"The long-run benefits are good,"
said Jacobson of the center. "The role
of alumni donations are not only
needed, but now they are needed more
than ever."

Great day for Michigan alums

The sun was shining, the weather was
warm,-and the Wolverines trounced the
Minnesota Gophers, keeping the Brown
Jug in Ann Arbor for another year. It
,was a perfect Homecoming for
thousands of University Alumni who
came back to Ann Arbor this weekend
to remember their campus days.
As happens each year at
Homecoming, a number of University
alumni slipped back into their college
days, playing in the alumni band during
the game, or struggling to remember
old cheers in the alumni cheerleading
squad. But most just came to enjoy the
game and to visit old campus haunts.
THE GAME'S halftime show
featured a medley of performances by
both the alumni band and the present
marching band. Fans erupted with ap-
plause when the combined bands
played "Temptation," a traditional
football game favorite. "I just love that
song," said Micky Kursman, an alum-
nus from South field, "I just love wat-
I ching the alumni play," said Barbara

Robinson, of West Bloomfield.
One alumnus, Alex Martin, who was a
member of the Alpha Delta Phi frater-
nity before graduating in 1950, came
back this weekend from Dallas, Texas,
but seemed disappointed with the ban-
ds' selections. "They (the band) don't
play 'Varsity' anymore," he said.
"When I played basketball here it was
ne of our fightsongs and, well, I miss
To many, Homecoming was a chance
to see how the University had changed
over the years. Stan Brown, who
graduated in the class of 1952, returned
to Ann Arbor from Grand Rapids to find
the fraternity he had belonged to had
disappeared. "It just isn't there," he
DWANE DEEM, of the class of '51,
was surprised by the new buildings
dotting the campus. "As far as I can
see that's the only change, the student's
spirit's still the same and my spirit's
still the same," said Deem, who came
from Columbus, Ohio for the game.
Another alumnus, a graduate of the

class of 1916, claimed to have only
missed 12 games sinc ehis graduation.
"This game sure makes up for the one
in 1961, when we lost in the last seconds,
he said.
Mary Riggs, who graduated in 1921,
traveled from Salina, Oklahoma for the
matchup. "This has been a perfect
weekend," she said. "We've had a
marvelous time."
Riggs, whose grandfather was an
engineering professor here, proudly
explained her family's deep roots at the
University. "My son's a graduate of
the class of '58, my daughter-in-law is
an alumnus, and six other member of
my family have attended Michigan."
At least one of the University's
current students was sure about the
implications of yesterday's victory.
Lilly Handler, a pom-pom girl and
member of the class of 1982, said
"We've really got a lot of spirit, and the
alumni add a lot to that. I think we're
going to the Rose Bowl."

THE ALUMNI association provides
the University with such benefits as
scholarship programs and student
recruiting services, said Forman.
The association has given a total of
$100 million to the University since 1953,
with 32 percent of all alumni actively
contributing, according to Joel Berger,
director of University Information Ser-
vices. Its level of contributions wAs
rated highly in a recent survey of peer
institutions conducted by the Council
for Financial Aid to Education.
Forman spoke for the association
when he said, "Alumni should play a
strong role in supporting the Unive -
Those alumni attending opening
ceremonies expressed pride in the new
center. "It's a sense of unity for the
alumni," said one alumnus. Another
called it a symbol for alumni returning
to campus.
Other dedication events at the center
include an open house today from
p.m. to 5 p.m. A leadership conference,
which will be attended by Gov. William
Milliken, is planned for Monday.

he heads. "The Bureau exists because
of the University's leadership in the
1940's," he said. The Bureau and the
School of Education are now sponsoring
a series of forums on the problem of

Keane also said the school has been

Three of the eight review committee
members were not even present
yesterday, one student charged, and
those that were there didn't seem in-
terested in the speakers' comments.
The fact that over one third of the
committee wasn't present at the
hearing "raises some serious
questions," said John Fitzpatrick, a
senior in the school. "It doesn't seem
like any input is being taken by the
committee," but that they are treating
the hearings as a necessary formality.
Professors Billy Evans, Rowena Mat-
thews, and Marilyn Shatz, who sit on
the review committee, were out of town
yesterday and were unable to attend
the hearings. Committee Chairman
John Romani said that the busy

schedues of committee members
would make it impossible to have, the
entire group present at any of the four
public hearings. He said it is always dif-
ficult to assemble a group of faculty
members, who are busy with a wide
range of responsibilities.
