Students juggle dlasses - antd more

The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, April 10, 1984 - Page 3

By MARLA GOLD
Some students have a hard time
juggling four classes at once. Brian
Barnier juggles his business ad-
ministration classes as well as bowling
pins while riding a unicycle.
Barnier heads the Ann Arbor chapter
of: the Juggling and Unicycle Club,
which gets together in the Union
Ballroom on Sunday nights to throw
things around.

OUTSIDE IN the hall, a sign reads
"Free Juggling Lessons," and the
neophyte who steps into the room is
handed three safe, soft bean bags.
Last Sunday, one member kept trying
to keep eight red balls going at once -
he hasn't gotten past six yet, but that
comes with practice.
People have to "unlearn their
childhood training against dropping
things," explains Rod, one of the club's

regulars.
ROD BEGAN juggling "seriously" a
few years ago, and said that his initial
"lifetime quest was to be able to juggle
five balls at once." But five balls didn't
turn out to be much of a challenge, he
said.
Rod takes his juggling seriously. He
says the activity needs to be stripped
from the "circus" image that surroun-
ds it, and instead "should be looked on
as an athletic exercise." The motions
improve hand-eye coordination and
may even strengthen parts of the brain,
Rod says.
To help rid juggling of some of its
negative stereotypes, Barnier is trying
to make it a course offering of the
University Activities Center in the fall.
BARNIER says the level of commit-

tment in the 70-member group varies,
from some who treat it as a hobby, to
those who "really get into it." The
biggest committment is from the street
performers who make some or all of
their living from juggling, and club
members will have their chance to
show their stuff on the street this July,
during the Art Fair.
While the club combines juggling and
unicycling, juggling is definitely the
most popular of the two, Barnier said.
"That's because juggling is more ac-
cessible," he says. But unicycling
really isn't as hard as it looks, he says.
Barnier says he knows one five-year-
old unicyclist who "is a terror on a
unicycle." Of course she has been at it a
long time - she started when she was
two years old.

Malicious Intent

University law prof
to hear Hughes case

By SUSAN MAKUCH
Wade McCree, a University law
professor, will hear testimony today in
a case that will decide whether the state
of California or Texas will collect
inheritence taxes on the estate of the
late billionaire Howard Hughes.
Today's preliminary hearings are in-
tended to help McCree decide whether
to hold the actual proceedings in
Michigan or somewhere closer to the
two western states, such as Denver.
HE SAID he would consider trying
the case out west if there were wit-
nesses or other sources of relevantin-
formation which could not travel to
Michigan.
McCree, a former U.S. Solicitor
General, was appointed in 1982 to hear

the case as a Special Master of the
Supreme Court.
Both Texas, where Hughes was born,
and California, where he lived for the
longest period of time, contend that
Hughes' domicile was in their state. A
person may have many residences, but
only one domicile, or legal home.
At stake are millions of dollars in
inheritence taxes which will go to the
state that convinces McCree its claim is
true.
McCree teaches courses such as Con-
sititutional Law and Trial Practice in
the Law School. His students have ob-
served some of the pre-trial
proceedings and McCree said that "If I
do try the case here, I'm sure they will
want to come."

PUSH must return money,
Dept. of Education says

Challenger crew ready to
try satellite repair again

(Continued from Page 1)
Hansen said most of the questioned
expenses involved "bookkeeping mat-
ters here and there" and "some
questions about keeping proper recor-
ds."
He said the government was, making
no allegations of fraud or misconduct
against Jackson or others.
THE EDUCATION Department said
all or part of the income may have to be
turned over to the government.
The repayment request marked the

second step in the government's tangle
with PUSH-Excel over the way federal
aid to the group was used.
Education Department auditors last
August questioned the spending of more
than $1.3 million of federal grants
totaling approximately $2,7 million.
The department reviewed those
audits and Hallowed some expenses'
earlier targeted as questionable.
OFFICIALS asked for the money
back in letters to PUSH-Excel dated
March 30 and March 31.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla (AP) -
Short on maneuvering fuel but given a
''high probability of success,"
Challenger's orbiting repairmen will
try again today to tow the slowly tur-
ning Solar Max satellite into the shuttle
cargo bay to be fixed.
The shuttle would be in position to
latch on to Solar Max beginning at 8:11
a.m. EST and "it may be another half
orbit before we actually achieve cap-
ture," said Flight Director John Cox.
Challenger circles the Earth every 93
minutes at its height of nearly 30 miles.
THROUGH a miracle of brains and
computer technology, the satellite -
which was twisting and tumbling after
rescue attempts failed Sunday - was
making one turn every 12 minutes in
one direction, with a slight wobble.
At that rate, said Cox, astronaut
Terry Hart will have four to five
minutes on each turn to guide the shut-
tle arm to a pin on the side of the
satellite and lock it on.
"I suspect we'll get it on the first
rotation," he said. "I can't give you Las
Vegas odds. We've got a high
' $3.00 Cuff
a regular $18.00 haircut! *
Haircut includes: shampoo,' W
W .~ conditioner, and hand drying

probability of success, a high
probability of picking it up."
Challenger's fuel for the rescue was
low, so flight controllers worked out a
plan to get the most out of what was
left. They moved up one engine firing
yesterday, instead of a series of firings
today, and told commander Robert
Crippen: "The strategy behind the burn
is hopefully this will give us a free
ride."
When it left the launch pad on Friday,
Challenger carried 1,488 pounds of
nitrogen tetroxide and 930 pounds of
hydrazine to power its small forward
steering jets. An 880,000-mile chase to
rendezvous with Solar Max and Sun-
day's failed attempt by George Nelson
to lock on to the crippled sun-watching
satellite left the shuttle with only 22
percent of the fuel. NASA rules set 3
percent as the minimum.
Paradoxically, Nelson's effort
to steady the Solar Max on Sunday set it
turning like a ball in flight and raised
fears it would be impossible to control.
