IMPA C
moves into
political
arena
By NANCY DOLINKO
While most of the students spent their
weekend watching the World Series, a
small group of students met at Hillel for
a meeting of IMPAC, the first Political
Action Committee in the nation formed
and composed entirely of un-
dergraduates .
IMPAC, (involved in Michigan
Political Action Committee) is the
creation of students David Karp and
Jill Goldenberg. The two together for-
med IMPAC 10 months ago.
AS A political action committee, IM-
PAC rates and endorses candidates
who have pro-Israel views.
"We deal with one issue - the U.S.-
Israeli relationship," said Chairman
David Karp. "What we're concerned
with is what is in the best interest of the
U.S. nd Israel."
IMPAC was started with the 1984
elections in mind, Karp said. He said
there were several Senate races in the
nation that the group wanted to par-
ticipate in.
THE GROUP will concentrate most
of its activities on the Illinois Senate
race where incumbent Republican
Charles Percy is facing Democratic
Congressman Paul Simon, Karp said.
Percy, who heads the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, angered many
Jewish voters by voting in favor of
selling AWAC radar planes to Saudi
Arabia, Karp said.
In addition to that, Karp said Percy
has pushed for U.S. recognition of the
PLO as the representatives of the
Palestinians which alienated more
Jewish voters.
IMPAC HAS organized a bus trip to
Illinois on election day to help cam-
paign for Paul Simon. "Getting people
to work on the campaign and get the vote
out for the candidate is what we're all
about," Karp said. ,
IMPAC has grown to 47 members in
the past 10 months. Its influence is
more widespread 'now, as similar
PAC's have grown to other campuses in
other states, including Northwestern,
Indiana, Boston University, and Duke
University.

Students celebrating the Tiger's first
World Series triumph since 1968
avoided causing major damage, Ann
Arbor police and University security of-
ficials said yesterday.
Police Sgt. Harold Tinsey said the
department "had not received any
reports of property damage" from
Sunday's post-game demonstration,
which started in front of Good Time.
Charlie's at about 8:30 p.m.
"ALTHOUGH THE subjects were
drinking and scattering paper, there
was no substantive damage," accor-
ding to Leo Heatley, assistant director
of the University's Department of
Public Safety.
In contrast, Detroit Police reported
16 injuries, and 34 arrests for charges
that included disorderly conduct and
unarmed robbery. An estimated 100,000
people roamed the streets, smashing
four police cars, burning two others,
breaking shop windows, and even at-
tempting to overturn a bus packed with
fans.
27-year-old Ann Arbor resident,
Raymond Dobrezinski, was shot tc
death on a downtown Detroit street
Although Detroit Police Department
Spokesman Wayne Roberts said the
shooting took place "in the general area
of the celebration," police weren't sure
if the shooting was directly related to
the festivities.
IN EAST Lansing, jubilant Michigan
State students rampaged through the
streets, throwing bottles, ripping down
street signs, and climbing on car hoods,
according to Bob Tripi of the State
News. They even climbed on the roof of
President Cecil Mackey's home, chan-
ting "Cecil!'Cecil!" Tripi said.
The most' serious damage was at
Spartan Stadium, where the mob broke
through the gates leading to the
stadium, ripped down the goal posts,
and caused an estimated $2,000 worth of

damage. Michigan State Security
reported eight arrests, six of which
were at the stadium.
Compared to these wild celebrations,
the University's Tiger party seemed
relatively tame.
A GROUP of more than 200 students
paraded around campus, yelling,
drinking beer, guzzling champagne,
and scattering paper around each of the
campus' major libraries.
Some damage was reported at the
Graduate Library, however, as the
crowd' poured beer over both the
reference tables, and astonished
students who were trying to study.
"One expensive reference book was
destroyed," according to Jim Cruse,
head of Circulation Services. In ad-
dition, the students tore up "every han-
dout and research aid around,"
creating what Cruse called "an awful
mess."
Cruse was "very disturbed" by the
incident. He labeled it a "childish
stunt" perpetrated by ,students who
"acted like animals."
Undergraduate Library Head David
Norton was similarly offended when the
group "trashed the lobby" of the UGLi
by tearing down bulletin boards and in-
formation stands.
"IT WAS regrettable, inconsiderate,
and unnecessary," he said, "par-
ticularly because of the inconvenience
to the other students who were
seriously studying."
Elaine Kinney, a graduate student in
Library Science who was working at
the reference desk in the Grad tried to
protect other reference books by hiding
them under the counter.
But she thought the interruption
"could have been worse, because it
wasn't destructive."
Nancy Glover, head of microfilm in
the Grad, agreed, saying, "considering

The campus seems awfully quiet this year, especially at
lunchtime, because the bells in Burton Tower have been
silent since August due to renovations of the carillons.
And Prof. William DeTurk, the University's Carillon-
neur, said the interruption makes the balance of his duties
less fun and more work than he likes.
"I'VE RESIGNED myself to it since it has to be done,"
DeTurk said. "It's gone through 48 Michigan winters and
since everything is exposed, 150 feet up in the air.. . it all
just takes its toll on the instrument, literally."
DeTurk, graduate of the University's School of Music,
has been the carillonneur since 1981. Besides ringing bells,
DeTurk also gives lessons and concerts, and is responsible
for overseeing the upkeep of the bells.
Thecarillons, stationary bells which are bolted to the
ceiling of the bell chamber, are undergoing the first major
restoration. One-pound chucks of cement have been
falling from the ceiling, so full-scale repairs are
necessary, said DeTurk. The entire carillon, 53 bells
which total more than 60 tons, will be dismantled and put

back together with new bolts, he said.
SOME OF THE smaller bells need to be recast and will
be sent to the bell foundry in England where they were
made. The renovation will not be completed until next fall'
at the earliest.
The carillon was a gift from Charles Baird, a former
athletic department director, and the tower was named
after LeRoy Burton, a former University president who
suggested a tower be built as a World War I memorial.
The tower was built specifically to house the carillon so
the design and workmanship was of high quality, enabling
the bells to last this long without any major problems,
DeTurk said.
FUNDS FOR the project which began in 1936 came en-
tirely from individual donors whose names are listed on
bronze tablets in the foyer of the tower.
Built during the Depression, the total cost was $70,000.
Today it would cost more than $1 million.
The restoration project will cost approximately $500,000.
Half of the money will come from the University, and the

' Pre-lawyers plan their f utures

By TRACEY MILLER
Representatives from more than ninety American law
schools yesterday traveled near and far to visit the largest
pre-law population in the nation - the University.
The 10th annual Pre-Law day was sponsored by the Mid-
west Association of pre-law advisors, and according to a
counselor at Career Planning and Placement Office the
Universityhas an outstanding record for the number of
graduates who go to law school.
"MICHIGAN is the only school that the caravan comes
back to every year, and it is because they are never disap-
pointed by the turnout of interested students we have," said
Jack Tinker.
The day provided students with the opportunity to have per-
sonal contact with the admissions officers while helping law
schools with recruiting procedures.
"Applying to law school is such a paper process," said
Louis Rice, an adviser at Career Planning and Placement.
"Unlike medical school where they insist on personal inter-
views, this day is most often the only chance applicants can
have a one-on-one conversation with an admissions officer."
HERB WALKER, a senior who will be taking his Law
School Admissions Test (LSAT) in December, said "This has
saved me a lot of time because I don't have to send letters to
the schools and wait for applications. After my test, I'll im-
mediately start applying to begin in September."
Senior Laura Gabel said she will be applying to law schools
this ionth.
"I've narrowed it down to eight schools and seven of them.
were here today, so I had a chance to ask some last minute
questions before I fill out the actual applications."
THE QUESTION of which is more important, the overall
grade point average or the LSAT was perhaps the most asked
question of the day, according to the admissions officers.
"We take these two scores and weigh them equally," said
Jane Rogers, assistant dean of Syracuse Law School of New

York, "but we also keep in mind some subjective influences
- such as where the student went to undergraduate school."
Susan Curnick, director of admissions and financial aid at
Northwestern University said "the overall package of the

students is what we look at.
Northwestern received 150 applications from the Univer-
sity last year and about 40 were admitted.
Rice said he is encouraged by the success of University ap-
plicants to law schools. According to Rice, 1,172 applicants
applied to law school from the University, with 541 of these
applicants releasing the information about their admission.
Of this number, 440 were accepted. Rice said he assumqs
with the rate of people who did not release the information,
the total rate of acceptance is 60-70 percent.
The University's law school last year admitted 369 ap-
plicants, 74 of them undergraduates from the University.

and drink off the library's six floors. Custodians will bag
the trash and put it in the middle of the foyer - a place
usually reserved for displays of rare books, historical
documents, and other exhibits more aesthetic than gar-
bage. Many of the snacks are bought in a nearby vending
room, stashed in purses and knapsacks, smuggled into the
library and then strewn throughout the library stacks after
use. "We could try to shut down the vending area, but that
would be a difficult and unpopular move," Vincent said.

parking lots, past a fast-food restaurant, and across a third
street before cornering it in the parking lot of a floral shop,
about two miles from where they started. "You guys get an
'A' for the day," Eyestone told the freshmen when he
arrived in a van with an animal control officer. In two
shakes of a lamb's tail, the ewe was bundled into the back of
the university's Pest Control van and taken back to the bar-
ns, Eyestone said. He said the sheep was carrying 10 em-

seat, when reporters asked whether he planned on paying.
At that point Reagan pulled out a $20 bill and was given
$17.54 in change. Surrounded by Secret Service agents, the
president sat down to eat as aides brought two young men to
sit next to him. Asked how long it had been since he had
been at McDonalds, Reagan said, "It had to be back
before I had this job."
