Little siblings
visit campus
Yesterday morning in the West Quad cafeteria, freshman
Michigan basketball player Steve Stoyko dunked four-year-
old Mike Bassford into the garbage can and put him on the
conveyor belt used for dirty dishes.
"It's rare," Stoyko said, "to see a little four-year-old kid
hanging around the college."
ON ANY other weekend four-year-olds would have been
out of place. But this weekend the campus became home to
the little sisters and brothers of University students during the
Li'l Sibs Weekend, sponsored by the Student Alumni Council
and Residence Hall Association. And Stoyko and others
0seemed to enjoy the visitors.
"This is our most successful year ever," said SAC'advisor
Chris Oldenburg with a grin. "We finally had to cut off
registration." The $2 registration fee covered the cost of the
weekend's events and entitled the siblings to a booklet of
coupons from local merchants.
SAC and RHA had scheduled conflictingsibling weekend in
past years, but for this third annual sibs' weekend Mary

1 AT THE MAGIC show in the Alumni Center yesterday, the
room was filled with little siblings sporting Michigan shirts
and hats and eating M&Ms and popcorn.
Ten year old Dawn Sherr, who won the Friday night ice
cream eating contest, was at the magic show Saturday after-
noon. "Its' good and funny," Dawn said of the show with its
broken magic wand, shrinking Michael Jackson gloves, and
giant playing cards.
Despite the drizzle and cold weather, the little sibs made
their own magic in tours of the campus.
"I like the Grad best," said 11-year-old Mark Waschewski af-

One of the more popular sights was the newly-renovated
basement of the Michigan Union, where several of the
siblings were intrigued by the new video game center. While

The fans at Crisler Arena knew it, the booster
club knew it, Detroit Southwestern coach Perry
Watson knew it, and, most importantly, the Flint
Northwestern players and coach Grover
Kirkland knew it.
The Wildcats are awesome.
RANKED number one all season and owner of
a Class A record 46 straight victories, North-
western proved yesterday that it is one of the
best teams ever to play the game in Michigan by
dismantling a game Southwestern club, 69-55, to
win its second straight Class A championship.
Led by Mr. Basketball Glen Rice's 25 points
and nine rebounds and Anthony Pendleton's 20
points on nine-of-ten shooting, Northwestern
went through the motions for much of the game
and still won easily. Unanswered spurts of 10,11
and 16 points stretched Flint's lead to 26 points
midway through the third quarter. Only their
lackadaisacal play allowed Southwestern to
narrow the score to the final margin.
It's hard to compare, but certainly no team
has been any better than they are," said an ad-
miring Watson. "They're an awesome team, but
we had no fear of them.
"WE FELT we could cause more problems if it
were a running game, if it were, an all-out
pressing game by them, but in the second half
they just sagged back in their zone and took
away some open lanes we might have had if they
had pressed."
Kirkland said that his club's regional match-
up with Flint Central was good preparation for
"I thought this game was planned since Cen-
tral in that they had good outside shooters and
Southwestern also had good outside shooters,"
said the Wildcats' head man. "We shut their guards
off in the first quarter with our man-to-man and
the game was over in the second quarter."
IN THAT second stanza, Northwestern ran off

16 straight points to break open a close game and
pull out to a 37-16 lead. Pendleton had six of the 16
while Rice added four.
Southwestern cut the lead to 43-27 right after
halftime but the Wildcats again pulled away. A
spinning reverse layup by Pendleton and a Daryl
Miller slam off an offensive rebound highlighted
a ten-point run that buried the Prospectors for
Sam Sillman and Terence Wheeler had 14 poin-
ts apiece to lead Southwestern. But the Prospec-
tors could convert only 39 per cent of their shots
(23-59), while Northwestern was a sizzling 61 per
cent from the floor (28-46).

AFTER THE game Kirkland wasn't shy about
praising his team.
"This was a better team than last year's club
because we had more speed," he said. "I feel
that this probably is the best team ever to play in
the State of Michigan.
Rice, who averaged 28 points and 12.5 reboun-
ds per game this year showed early in the cham-
pionship clash why he was named the state's best
player and why he was the key to the Wildcats'
greatness. He scored 11 points first quarter and
also pulled down four of his rebounds in that
period. The 6-7 senior added three assists and
one blocked shot while helping his club, control
the tempo of the game.
RICE HAS yet to commit to a college for next
year but said he has narrowed it down to six
choices, one of which is Michigan.
And although he is the undisputed star on this
stellar team, Rice best summed up North-
western's winning formula.
"We thought we could go undefeated. We just
pray a lot and we work together well as A team."
Rich was being modest. They work awesomely
as a team.

The Prospectors of Southwestern can only watch helpless as Flint North-
western's Daryl Miller throws down a dunk at Crisler Arena yesterday. The
jam was typical of the way Northwestern treated their smaller opponents en
route to capturing the state's Class A championship.

Chanting '"Objects never, women
forever" and carrying signs reading
"Stop sexist advertising against
women," about 25 people yesterday
protested in front of a billboard on Nor-
th Main Street that advertises
Canadian Black Velvet whiskey.
The protest, which lasted about two
hours, was sponsdred by Women
Rebelling in a Sexist Environment
(RISE). Their goal was to draw atten-
tion to the billboard which they said is
"THAT SIGN is dangerous. It's
propaganda. People get used to it.
They get anesthetized," said Pat
Willacher, a city resident and former
University student.
She said the advertisement "is just

The billboard, which shows a woman
in a low-cut black velvet dress lying in
front of a bottle of Canadian Velvet,
reads "feel the Velvet."
MEMBERS OF the group said their
protest was an effective way of dealing
with the billboard.
"It draws attention. It makes people
think. (Sexist advertising) is so per-
vasive in our society that you don't con-
sciously realize it as oppression and
this focuses our attention on it," said
Michelle Kramer, a city resident.
Amos Kornfeld, one of two men
protesting the billboard, said that he
has known about the billboard for four
years. He said he happened to be
walking by the billboard yesterday and

As. someone who ran her own
business in the 1950s, University Regent
Veronica Smith knows how tough it can
be for women trying to get ahead in a
world dominated by men.
I Smith, one of three women on the
Board of Regents, says she sym-
pathizes with the uphill climb women
face even today to get to get ahead in
business and politics.
"I CAN RELATE to the women," the
Republican from Grosse Ile says.
"When you stop and think about it, about
half the students on campus are
women. Then you look at the ad-
ministration and you look at the
"I happened to look around at the

board meeting, and aside from the
three women regents, there was no
other woman there," she says. "That
kind of bothers me."
Smith, 60, graduated from the
University in 1948 with a degree in
sociology. In 1950, she took over her
brother's insurance business and had to
contend with the stereotypes and
prejudices toward women.
Sitting comfortably on a sofa, looking
matronly in a bright pink blouse tied
with a big white bow, she recalls one
time when her firm put in the-low bid
for a county sheriff's contract. The
company, that had the account before
her wrote to the state insurance com-
mision'er demanding to see all her rates
and licenses.
"I got a registered letter in the mail
saying either you do this or we'll take
away your license. They would never
have thought to do that to a man.
Never," she says.
Fortunately, Smith was able to sub-
stantiate all the bids and get the con-

tract. Still, the incident bothered her.
"It was unbelievable to me," she says.
BUT despite her experiences, Smith.
is not one to advocate special treatment
for women. Just like her parents did,
she encourages women to use education
as a way to get ahead.
When she was growing up in Wyan-
dotte, Mich., Smith says, her parents
encouraged her to get an education and
be prepared to start a career of her
"In our particular household,
education was stressed. The fact that
you were female made no difference.
You were to prepare yourself for a
profession or for some means of being
able to take care of yourself, because I
was not brought up to get married," she

Protesters boycott a billboard in front of a Main Street party store.

BOUT 200 students at Brockport High School in
Brockport, N.Y. walked out of classes Friday to
protest a ban on necking that school officials im-
posed last week. Some students said they were
less upset by the ban than with the severity of the punish-

protest, we're going to walk out.' Another kid took them
seriously;and it sort of grew," he said.
IT'S BEEN nothing but "soup and hard-boiled eggs" for
Herbert Epp since his dentist repossessed his false teeth
three weeks ago. Now Epp, 68, says he won't drop his

willing to return the teeth. Hess said he would talk with
Epp before deciding whether to accept the offer. But even if
the teeth are back in Epp's mouth, it won't take the bite out
of Epp's lawsuit, Hess said. "Absolutely not," he said, ad-
ding that he plans to pursue the monetary damages portion
of the action. "I've been living on soup and hard-boiled
eggs," Epp said of his three weeks without teeth. "I have to
dunk my toast in my coffee." "The whole thing is

Mrs. Peller said yesterday, "Wendy's is worried about the
beef in Prego. . . . Well, there's plenty of beef in this world
for everyone. . . They have no beef as far as I can see." At
a news conference, she noted she does not say the word beef
in the spaghetti sauce ad. "All I said was, 'I found it,' " she
explained. "I could have found a million dollars." Wendy's
