Villanova hopes to clean Wolverines'


Special to the Daily
'Time is on my side'
- The Rolling Stones
DAYTON, Ohio - Coaches Bill
Frieder of Michigan and Rollie
Massimino of Villanova both want time
on their side today when the Wolverines
meet the Wildcats at UD Arena in the
second round of the NCAA tournament.
The absence of the 45-second clock af-
fects the very nature of the 26-3
Wolverines, the number-one seed in the
Southeast Region. As evidenced by
Friday night's Fairleigh Dickinson
game, Michigan is not going to be
allowed to play the fast-paced game
that carried the club to its current 17-
game winning streak.
NOBODY IN his right mind wants to
get into a running game with a team
that has Gary Grant, Richard Rellford
and Roy "I want to be a 6-11 point.
guard" Tarpley. Now, they don't have
"The big thing for us is that we have
to control the tempo," said Massimino,
whose Wildcats stopped host club
Dayton on Friday, 51-49. "We're happy
(to be playing without a clock). It might
be a 4-2 ball game."
The last thing the Wolverines want is
another low scoring game.
Fairleigh Dickinson drove the Big Ten

champions crazy by controlling the ball
for minutes at a time and playing
tenacious defense. Michigan demon-
strated its frustration 'by shooting 31
percent in the first half.
FRIEDER SAYS that his team will

be, ready for any style of play. Still, he
was in the room while Massimino was
talking about a slow pace yet chose not
to believe it.
"I don't expect them to just come out
and sit on ith" Frieder said. "They
might pass it six or eight times, but if
they get into (Villanova's Ed) Pin-
ckney - who I'd probably trade my
front line for - he's gonna shoot it in.
You'll probably see a game in the 60s
or 70s."
Frieder might have added,"I hope."
Another game in the 50s could lead to
disaster. Antoine Joubert, who shot a
miserable one-of-nine Friday night,

was clearly shaken by the problem the
Wolverines had against the region's
lowest-seeded team. The Detroit native
is worried that Michigan's explosive
ability to come back will be stifled by
deliberate opponents.
"IN THE GAMES that you have a
shot clock, they're going to have to put
the ball up," said Joubert, recalling
Michigan's come-from-behind wins
over Iowa, Minnesota and Indiana.
"Here, if you're down seven with five
minutes (left), you're going to have to
foul. There is a very good chance you're
going to lose the game."
It's been a long time since Michigan
players seriously considered losing.
While Pinckney may not be quite the
equal of Tarpley, Rellford and Butch
Wade - Massimino says he would
make the deal in a minute - the 6-9
senior from The Bronx is one of the top
players in the country. His 16 points and
nine rebounds per game lead Villanova
in both categories. "E-Z Ed" hits 60.2
percent of his field goal attempts and
Wade will have problems keeping him
away from the basket.
MASSIMINO starts 6-7 Harold
Pressley and 6-6 Dwayne McClain up
front. The pair combined for 19 points
and 10 boards against Dayton. They
may be as good a set of forwards as

Michigan has seen all year.
The Wolverines should have a big ad-
vantage in the backcourt, assuming
Joubert and Grant shoot better than the
24 percent they managed versus FDU.
The Wildcats' Dwight Wilbur and Gary
McLain are solid, if unspectacular, per-
In addition -to tempo, the key for
Michigan will be shaking off the effects
of the near-trauma it suffered in the fir-
st round. Massimino thinks his op-
ponent will be ready to go today.
"We're afraid they're going to come
out and explode," said the 12-year
Villa nova head man, who won his
seventh straight first-round NCAA
clash Friday. Massimino even gained
some respect from Michigan while
watching them play below par.
"I sat right behind their bench and I
watched what a good job Bill did with
his kids," he said. "The kids responded
to the situation."
If Michigan gets into the same type of
situation this afternoon, its season
could be over. Frieder will be looking
for Mick Jagger's teammates with the
hope that his club can advance to Bir-

St. Pat's mixes traditions

As bartenders filled glasses with green beer for
scores of patrons clad in green hats and plastic
shamrocks last night, few of the revelers undoub-
tably stopped to wonder what their Irish counterparts
were doing.
St. Patrick's Day, a holiday carried over from
Ireland by immigrants years ago, has maintained lit-
tle semblance to the celebration in its native land.
Census figures front 1980 show that there are nearly
3,000 full-blooded Irish people in Ann Arbor and there
are probably hundreds more of Irish descendents.
The Daily spoke with two Irishmen last week as they
prepared for the St. Patrick's Day holiday. Their
remarks point out the differences between the
traditional Irish celebration and its American ver-

Tony Paxton, 39, is a native Irishman who im-
migrated to the United States in 1970. He has settled
in Ann Arbor after stays in Ohio, North Carolina, and
Florida and currently works as the food and
beverages director of the Marriott Inn in the city.
Jack Foley, 50, owns and operates Foley's Uniform
Store in town, and traces his ties to Ireland back to
his grandparents, who were born there. Employees
of the uniform store describe Foley as an "Irishman
who runs around just like a, leprechaun," especially;
on St. Patrick's Day.
Their remarks to the Daily follow:
Daily: What is the most important part of St.
Patrick's Day for you?
Foley: It's the parties. It's just a joyful time to
celebrate. It's an excuse for a party.
Paxton: It's both heritage and religion. It reminds

me I'm Irish. I take the day very seriously.
Daily: How is the celebration in Ireland different
from the one here?
P: In Ireland it's a holy day-you go to Mass.-
There's a parade, which is mostly commercial but
has some military in it. There's lots of dancing, com-
petitions, and sports. The stores also put on special
sales like they do here. It's festive the entire week,
not just one day like it is here.
Daily: Do you continue to observe the religious
aspect of St. Patrick's Day?
F: I don't much now, but when I was in Detroit I
madea real effort to go. They have a St. Patrick's
Day mass at the Holy Trinity there where they have a
collection for the poor.
P: I did and my family always went to church. It's

'U'English prof
encourages activism

English Prof. William "Buzz"
Alexander remembers when students
in his "Vietnam and the Artist" course
a few years ago refused to take a quiz.
At the beginning of the term, Alexan-
der had made a pact with his students
not to give them a quiz as long as they
kept up with reading-assignments and
wrote each day in a journal.
ALEXANDER said later in the term


necessarily acquiesce to it," he recalls.
Perhaps Alexander, 46, remembers
that class because he acted much the
same way as a student at Harvard
during the 1960s. Involved in the anti-
war movement, he organized a group of
Harvard faculty members to protest
and was arrested for civil disobedience.
Even today, Alexander devotes much of
his spare time to local peace activism.
IN ADDITION to being a member of
the Ann Arbor Peace Community,
Alexander established the Ann Arbor
Committee for Human Rights in Latin
America in 1976, and took a two-year
sabbatical in Peru in 1978 and 1979.
Next fall he will return to Peru as a
Fullbright professor.
But it wasn't until he had taught at
the University for five years and had
ruminated the impact of the Vietnam
War, that he began to incorporate his
political views in course lectures.
"You went through (the war), and
then the war wound down. Then a lot of
people had to find how to fit their beliefs
into their life after the war," he says
"THERE WAS a quiet period in
which people were deepening their

Democratic mayoral candidate Ed
Pierce yesterday called for a city-
sponsored daytime shelter for the
homeless. "Many of (the homeless)
have mental problems," said Pierce,
'they're in terrible, terrible shape."
Pierce also addressed the main
problem facing his campaign - voter
turnout. He discussed these concerns
with Sen.. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and
members of the Ann Arbor Democratic
Party at Dominick's restaurant yester-
day afternoon.
"WE'VE HAD a great deal of dif-
ficulty getting out the vote," said Pier-
ce. He singled out the predominantly
student controlled First Ward (which
includes South and West Quads) as a
problem area because ". . . that's
where there are plenty of Democrats
who don't vote."

thought the students were slipping on
their end of 'the deal. But he was wrong,
and the students countered that he
wasn't living up to his end. They told
him so by saying "no" to his quiz.

Just about anything goes
TUDENTS WHO spent spring break in Fort Lauder-
-dale last month just missed one wild party. The
master of ceremonies for spring break contests at
The Button on the Beach in Fort Lauderdale told

other men wore g-strings for a "wet Willie" contest, in
which the garments became see-through when watered
down. Rich Martin, public information officer for the Fort
Lauderdale Police Department, said some of the contests
were clearly a violation of Florida statutes. "Exposure of
one's sex organs is clearly in violation of the law," he said.
"You just can't do it."

stood inside the open roof as the moving automibile raced
along at speeds up to 100 mph, trying to match the speed of
