By JOE EWING
Special to the Daily
IOWA CITY - Who said Michigan
couldn't win the big one?
The Wolverines got a pair of clutch
jump shots from Garde Thompson with
just a little over four minutes left last
night to spark a comeback and down
Iowa, 56-52.
The victory boosts the Wolverines
conference record to 10-2 and puts a full
game-and-a-half distance between them
and the second-place Hawkeyes in the
Big Ten. With the loss Iowa falls to 8-3
in the league, and looks to be out of the
running for the conference title.
"OBVIOUSLY THE loss makes our
job more difficult and (Michigan head
coach Bill Frieder's) job easier," said
Iowa head coach George Raveling. "I
believe we're still a viable candidate
for the NCAA playoffs and I don't think
we're necessarily out of the Big Ten
race."
Thompson, who came off the bench
with five minutes left in the contest,
made two straight jumpers from the
top of the key against Iowa guard Jeff
Moe to turn the tide of the game and put
Michigan, which trailed 49-44 at the
time, back into the contest.
On each of Thompson's shots,
Michigan set a pick on Moe, and both
times the 6-3 freshman fell victim to it.
After the contest, Raveling was ap-
parently disappointed with Moe,
although he would not specifically
name him as the culprit.
"ONE OF our players fell asleep,"
said Raveling, "and as I told him in the
dressing room, 'I can buy you falling
asleep on it the first time but it's cer-
tainly difficult for me to understand
how you could fall asleep on it the
second time.' "

Michigan followed Thompson's spark
and got a key lay-up from guard An-
toine Joubert at 17:01 to take the lead,
50-49. Roy Tarpley, who finished the
game with 21 points, then hit a 14-footer
to push the Wolverine lead to three
before Moe made it 52-51 on an 18-foot
jumper with 2:29 left.
Leslie Rockymore then extended the
lead to three once again with a follow-
up lay-up underneath 45 seconds later.
"THAT WAS the big one," said
Frieder of Rockymore's basket. "You
know, you've got to be lucky in games
like this. I don't know what happened
down there."
Before the Wolverine flurry, Iowa's
center Greg Stokes put the Hawkeyes
on top, 45-44 on a three-point play at the
thirteen minute mark. Iowa then ex-
tended their lead to 49-44 on a jumper
from forward Michael Payne and on
free throws from both Payne and guard
Andre Banks.
The second half had shaped up into a
real battle early on, thanks mostly to
Iowa forward Gerry Wright. The 6-8
sophomore who scored 14 points on the
night, hit from the inside on three
straight possessions to pull the
Hawkeyes within one, 31-30, after they
had trailed at the half, ;9-24.
STOKES then hit a followup to put
Iowa ahead 32-31 and set the 15,450
Hawkeye faithful at the Carver -
Hawkeye Arena into a deafening fren-
zy.

r Ann Arbor city councilmember, Pierce is the

The Republican race is not expected to be as closely contested.
Hadler, a retired businessman, is heavily favored to prevail over
Jensen, a self-proclaimed "non-elected official."
One of the key issues in the election is the need to provide more
housing for low and middle income city residents. Both Democratic
candidates have outlined specific plans for increasing affordable
housing. Republican candidate Jensen said he also has a plan, but
his opponent, Hadler, says he does not believe a plan is necessary.
EXPLAINED HADLER: "There's almost no answer. Costs are
costs. I don't think city government should be in the housing
business. There's no place in the budget to make affordable housing
available."
Bryant's proposed housing blueprint involves setting up a land
trust as a non-profit organization with a board composed of com-

munity members to administer it. Land would be taken off the
market and put in a trust so the property value would not fluctuate
with the quirks in the market.
"We could build homes or lease that land to people to build houses
on," said Bryant. "When a person builds a house, he attains equity.
It's different from renting. If you build a house, that's yours-that's
equity."
PIERCE SAID he is considering a three-pronged approach to
dealing with housing. He said he would first scrutinize zoning laws
to see which ones are "inhibiting high-density land use." Then he
would set up a housing bond authority that would sell bonds on the
open market. Money generated from the sale of these bonds would
be put into a fund to assist residents with housing.

The University announced yesterday
that Gov. James Blanchard will be
speaking at the May commencement
ceremony amid rumors that British
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
would speak at the ceremony.
"I don't know or understand how a
rumor about Margaret Thatcher has
developed this year because we have
not invited or been in contact with her
people since 1980 when she refused our
invitation," said Jim Shortt, the
Assistant to the president.
OFFICIALS in Thatcher's office also
denied the rumor. "I don't know of any
invitation of the University of Michigan

which has been sent to Prime Minister
Thatcher for this year," said one of
Thatcher's aides in London.
An informal invitation was sent to
Blanchard soon after he took office in
1983. It was not until .this year that
Blanchad could fit his schedule around
the Univerity's commencement
ceremonies, according to Vice
President Richard Kennedy. A formal
invitation was sent to Governor Blan-
chard in December which he accepted
soon after it was received.

cement speakers is long, complicated,

Bursley
student
suspected
of ext~oron

By VIBEKE LAROI
The ex-vice president of the Bursley
Board of Governors allegedly embez-
zled $2,457.42 from the organization's
funds according to the Bursley budget
committee.
The case is currently under in-
vestigation and a derision on whether
or not to prosecute the student official
will be reached soon, said Detective
Schubring of the Ann Arbor Police
Department who is handling the case.

. . ................

THE EX-VICE president, Rick
Blalock, an LSA junior, handed in his
letter of resignation on Feb. 2, upon
request of the treasurer and president
of the Board, said Scott Siler, treasurer
of the board.
The Bursley Board of Governors,
(BOG) is a student organization that
provides social services for Bursley. It
is supported from funds from the Bur-
sley store and snack bar.

AND
KERY MURAKAMI
The University's Board of Regents yesterday approved a
4.7 percent rate hike for residence halls and a 4.9 percent in-
crease for family housing units to go into effect July 1.
University students will pay $2,910.88 per semester for a
dormitory double, an increase of $131.08 over current rates.
Students living in a dormitory single will pay $3,455.94 - a
$155.94 increase.
New rates for family housing units will range from $246

7e housing hike
(now $234) a month for a furnished efficiency in University
Terrace to $450 (now $429) for a furnished three bedroom
suite in Northwood IV.
ROBERT HUGHES, University director of housing, said
that the increases will cover inflation, maintain present
programs and services, and develop better reserves for
residence halls.
Hughes said that the reserves are used to keep the constant
influx of capitol going into housing's "large and dated

Fourth in a series
The key to landing a job for a student
with a background in liberal arts is to
sell skills, not the name of a degree, ex-
perts say.
"In a job interview, you're selling
yourself, not the name of your major,"
said Dan Schechter, a program analyst
at the National Endowment for the
Humanities. "Personal qualities and
skills are more important than any
credentials."
THAT ADVICE may sound like old
hat, but statistics bear it out. A study of
liberal arts majorsWho graduated from
the University of Texas between 1975
and 1982 showed that only three percent
were unemployed and an over-
whelming number held positions that

matched their personal skills.
In addition, a study conducted by
American Telephone and Telegraph
found that liberal arts majors climbed
the company ladder both higher and
faster than business and engineering

'land jobs
Forty-three percent of the liberal arts
majots surveyed had risen to fourth
level management, while only 32 per-
cent of the business and engineering
graduates had done so.
AND THIS year's liberal arts
graduates can expect to have more jobs
from which to choose.
"I think the market for liberal arts
students is improving because of the
economic recovery," said Judith
Kayser of the College Placement Coun-
cil, adding that the resurgence of small
businesses has provided a new market-
place for entry-level positions.
But before liberal arts students begin
their job search, they should assess
their skills and try to match those skills
with a job.
See CREATIVITY, Page 2

students. Although liberal arts
graduates on the whole may take a little
longer to "settle into" their jobs, they
advanced quicker than their counter-
parts, Schechter said.
