Alumni nationwide help
'U' search for donations

Daily Photo by DEBORAH LEWIS.

By CHERYL BAACKE
The University's plan to raise $160
million by 1987 was officially announ-
ced yesterday, and campaign officials
say they are ready to begin four years
of hard work.
Instrumental to the "Campaign for
Michigan" are the hundreds of Univer-
sity alumni nationwide who are volun-
teering their time to the campaign, said
director Roy Muir.
OF COURSE, alumni like former
U.S. president Gerald Ford and Roger
Smith, who are serving as honorary
chairman and co-chairman, will play a
key role , aiding in the solicitation of
gifts.
The title "honorary" in front of their
names "really indicates those are
people of extreme distinction whose
very top leadership brings a sense of
honor and credibility to the campaign,"
said Muir. "They and all the volunteers
have been, and I expect will be, critical
in the campaign."
Muir said that Ford and Smith have
agreed to help with some of the major
gift solicitations, but added that many
other University alumni also have af-
filiations with foundations and cor-
porations that are (capable) of giving
money.
MUIR SAIDhe expects 60 percent of
the campaign goal, or about $64 million,
will come from individuals "giving
away money."
Muir estimates the remaining 40 per-
cent to come from corporations and
foundations, he said.
"We will go wherever we have ties,"
said Muir, adding that they will be ap-
proaching every corporation that has a
giving record with the University as
well as those who have alumni or sup-

porters on boards or in leadership
positions.
THE UNIVERSITY has a good
record of attracting donations from
corporate foundations - about $15
million last year - said Muir, adding
that doesn't mean collecting $160
million will be easy.
Corporations "don't just give money
away to anyone who walks through the
door," Muir said. "There are a lot of
demands on those funds. The challenge

Ford launches drive
for 'U' improvements

is to build on the mutual interest of the
academic -community and the cor-
poration."
Corporations want well trained
people in all fields, said Muir, and since
the University has a good academic
record, they are more willing to donate
funds.
Ford announced yesterday that more
than $46 million already has been
raised. Muir said the university has
been actively soliciting gifts since July,
1982 to "test the market" and make
sure the campaign goals are realistic.

Bouncing for beats

Brothers of the fraternity Sigma Alpha Mu raise funds in the diag for the American Heart Association. Steve Miller
bounces a basketball off of his head to symbolize the annual theme "Bouncing for Bets," while Warren Cohen collects
a donation from a passing bicyclist. The fundraising drive ends today at noon.

Shakey Ja
By JODY BECKER
Shakey Jake, Ann Arbor's guitar-
strvmming, chatter-loving street
character, is expanding his commer-
cial empire to include the Party-Gram
business.
Purveyor of local color (and t-shirts,
posters, and bumper stickers - most of
himself), "Shakey" Jake Woods has
begun offering his personality and
musical talents for local apperances.
WHILE SOME MAY SAY the com-
mercial emphasis detracts from the
mystique surrounding the city's most
colorful personality, Jake says the new
business is well on its way to becoming
the most lucrative of his many jobs.
"See, I already got five jobs, Jake
said. "I sell posters and t-shirts, rent
and lift the refrigerators (for the Ann
Arbor Music Mart's rental service), I
play the guitar, and now I'm doing
this."
The $20 fee for a singing telegram or
personal appearance "don't bother me
at all," the 83-year-old Jake said. "I
make my living doing that."
JAKE'S FIRST appearance as local
celebrity-for-hire was last month at the
Pinecreek Country Club An Belleville,
where he entertained participants in
the 5th annual Angus MIcFeely 'Golf
Tournament.
"I don't think he actually did all that
much," said a spokesperson for the
club. "He took out his guitar and
strummed briefly, ate, and talked to the
people."

cure this imbalance," he said. "It will
however, give the University greater
flexibility and security."
Half of the $160 million will be in-
vested to establish a number of new
professor positions, graduate
fellowships, and merit scholarships,
and to help sustain the University's
libraries.
The remaining $80 million will help
fund building projects on campus, in-
cluding:
"$20 million for a new chemical
sciences building;
9$20 million for the new University
hospital;.
9$15 million for the business school;
*$12 million to help complete the
College of Engineering facilities on
North Campus;

*$9.6 million for a new eye center;
"$1.7 million for the School of Music
performing arts wing; and
"$1.4 million for renovations and an
addition to Tappan Hall.
Jon Cosovich, vice-president for
development and University relations
is overseeing the campaign. Cosovich
came to the University in January
from Stanford University, where he
was involved in two successful fund
raisers.
"The campaign is very important to'
us (because) we believe our destiny is
not a matter of chance - it's a matter
of choice," said University President-
Harold Shapiro. "It's not a matter of'
waiting for it but of achieving it. I'm
certain we will succeed, not only
because we can but because we must."

But Jake says he has an act worked
out which incorporates several of the 24
songs from the Shakin' Jake Woods jazz
and blues tape produced in 1979.
SINCE JAKE doesn't have a house or
telephone, he has his "secretary," Ann
Arbor resident Teresa Morris, book his
appearances.
"As long as someone calls one day in
advance, or even early in the morning,
I can find Jake and have it covered,"
Morris says.
Jake said business has been fairly
slow, but he still, plans to continue
passing out fliers on the Diag and
elsewhere around campus. "I know af-
ter a while I can be doing four or five of
these a day," he says.
SHAKEY JAKE doesn't provide a list
of references, but Chris Cook, a barten-
der at Mr. Floods Party on Liberty
Street, says Jake's frequent appearan-
ces after football games on Saturday's
are fun. "A little tap dancing and a few
licks on the guitar. . . How can I say
he's no good? He's a legend in Ann Ar-
hor."
Jake came to Ann Arbor "around 25
years ago." "They wanted me up here.
I was 'in New Orleans and my friends
eame down and drove me here to play
in the Ann Arbor jazz and Blues
Festival and I been here since then."
NOW, JAKE says, his hangout is,
"That corner of State and William. It's
my corner. I own that corner."
Most every day, Jake can indeed be
found there, but he says he's a busy

man. "I ain't got much spare time with
five jobs" he says.
A familiar sight around campus,
Jake has a constant stock of t-shirts,
posters and tapes available for $4 in the
hefty bag he uses as a briefcase. The
poster features a photograph of Jake
and his guitar in front of Hill
Auditorium wearing the same thing he
wears today: white sunglasses, a blue
suit and bowtie. Only with the chill of
winter approaching does Jake don a
black fur coat and straw hat - with a
wide red tie under the chin.
ON "HIS" CORNER of State and E.
Willian, Jake is only a block away from
the steps of Angell Hall, but he says he's
never considered attending classes, "I
can't read or write, and I get by pretty
good without an education."
Shakey Jake said he was born in 1890
in Little Rock, Arkansas, to parents
who were field workers. He says he
taught himself to play the guitar by ear.
Jake is less specific about where
exactly home is in Ann Arbor. "I don't
need no place to sleep. When I get ready
to take a nap I know where to go. But
with 3000 girlfriends how can I sleep? I
gotta be on the go."
Jake says the campus has remained
pretty much the same since he's been
around, the only problem he sees today
is in the size of the student population.
"There ain't enough students here. We
need another thousand. That should
help business some."

State

Theatre

By SUE BARTO
In the midst of the fourth anniversary
of one of Ann Arbor's biggest weekend
traditions - a midnight movie with
Harold and Maude - late night
moviegoers recently have been left out
in the cold if porno flicks don't light
their fires.
The State Theatre last weekend of-
fered little choice in late night diver-
sions - joining Harold and Maude on
the marquis at midnight were Cafe
Flesh, Last Tango in Paris, Dallas
School l ils; -and Outlaw Ladies.-TE43 '
first two are rated X_4 ileathe latter,
two, shown as a double-eature;,are.
rated XXX.
ALTHOUGH THE limited selection
elicited complaints from many
moviegoers, theatre manager Barry
Miller defended the showings.
"Anyone who knows Marlin Brando

knows that (Last Tango In Paris) is a
great movie," he said.
Cafe Flesh, is a burgeoning cult film
which has caught on in Chicago and
New York in the same way that The
Rocky Horror Picture Show has
become a perennial favorite.
BUT BECAUSE the suggestively-
titled flick has not gone over well in Ann
Arbor, it will be replaced next week by
An Evening with the Doors, starring
Jim Morrison and his band.
Last Tango has been replaced this
weekend .by ,Penniess From heaven,
featuring Steve Martin. Dallas .School
rls and Outlaw Ladies probably will

be around for awhile, filling the one
spot traditionally reserved for an X-
rated feature.
Last weekend's departure from the
usual mix does not mean State Street is
turning into Times Square, according to
Miller. "X-rated movies have their
audience, but that's about it," he said.

Anti-MX Missile
protest misfires

By PETE WILLIAMS
A demonstration by an anti-MX
Missile group misfired yesterday at
U.S. Rep. Carl Purcell's office in
Plymouth.
Protestors originally planned to
release 70 balloons from a replica of an
MX Missile, representing the ap-
proximate $70.2 million of district
residents' tax money that demon-
strators said would be spent on the ar-
ms. But the balloons got stuck and only
one came out.
AN ADMINISTRATIVE assistant for
Purcell described the members of the
group, who also presented the
congressman's office with a 10,000
signature "stop the MX" petition, as
"really polite and courteous" and
listened the model MX to "a'
homecoming float."
more to come
Kim Miller, midwest organizer for
the National Committee for a SANE
Nuclear Policy, said that Purcell's
district was chosen for the demon-
stration because of his past voting
record.
"The campaign is directed at swing
congresspersons," he said. "Although
Purcell has been traditionally opposed
to the MX . . in May he voted to put
money into MX research and develop-
ment." Miller said Purcell's policy
change was due to Reagan ad-
ministration bargaining tactics. "Pur-
cell is one of the moderate represen-
tatives who have cut a deal with
President Reagan." he said.
"REAGAN HAS decided that he will
produce the MX, and he is getting a lot
of support (from thesehCongressmen),"
Miller said.
According to SANE members, the
MY nrniet is "both defensively and

strong defense, and strong deterrants."
Miller said that SANE becomes con-
cerned, "once we move across the
deterrant threshold, and *that is the
direction the Reagan administration is
moving in."
The Ann Arbor chapter of SANE was
founded in July and has 200 members.
