day that he wrote to 10 faculty mem-
bers in two LSA departments last mon-

Steiner declined to say what these in-
centives are or which departments are
involved,, but Math Prof. Wilfred
Kaplan said that members in his depar-
tment had been contacted.
SPEAKING AT THE monthly
meeting of LSA faculty, Steiner said the
moves were necessary because of the
lack of growth in the number of faculty
positions restricts the college from
hiring "new, young faculty."
Kaplan, who said he learned of the
letters last month, was concerned that
the letters would demoralize faculty
members who received the letters and
decided to stay. He asked at the
meeting if any steps were being taken
to counteract this "demoralization."
"I'm puzzled by tloe question,"
Steiner said, adding that if the question

They didn't burn any cabs or turn
over any police cars, but the fans at
Tiger Stadium got what they wanted
yesterday as Detroit came from behind
to top the Cleveland Indians, 5-4.
Rookie Chris Pittaro delivered three
hits and Lane Parrish knocked in a pair
of runs to pace the attack of the defen-
ding World Champions. Lou Whitaker
provided the key blow with a sacrifice
fly in the eighth inning to put the Tigers
ahead for good.
THE SELLOUT crowd of 51,180 filled
the stands early to watch the Tigers
receive their World Championship
rings and stayed until the end, despite
36 degreeitemperatures and heavy
snow flurries. The bleacher crowd
responded to the frigid weather by
singing "Jingle Bells" throughout the
Pitcher Willie Hernandez started
where he left off in 1984, coming on in
the ninth inning to preserve winning
pitcher Jack Morris' one-run lead and
record his first save of the year. The
Tiger reliever struck out two of tle
three batters he faced.
Cleveland opened the scoring in the
first inning when shortstop Julio Fran-
co doubled and scored on a Mel Hall
THE SCORE remained 1-0 until the
Tiger fourth when Darrell Evans put
Detroit on the board. After John Grubb
walked and went to second on a wild
pitch, Evans lined a single to rightfield,
to tie the score.

Fans blow off class
to watch opening day

Even in this career-oriented age,
when campus apathy springs eternal,
students can still find a cause they
cherish and defend: the Detroit Tigers.
Watching baseball may not seem as
noble as protesting nuclear war, but
students united yesteday to blow off
classes and root for the Tigers on a
snowy opening day.
DORM RESIDENTS invaded student
lounges in full force to watch the game.
In East Quad, LSA freshman Scott
Kremcow was decked out in a Tiger t-
shirt and a Detroit jersey.
But Kremcow didn't let Tiger fever
get out of control. "I was watching the
pre-game and the first inning, then I
went and took a calculus quiz and
rushed back to catch the rest of the
game," he said.
Over in West Quad, lounges were
packed with students watching the
game. During a commercial break,
LSA freshman Jeff Pederson confessed

damage yesterday, skinning the Tribe with a 5-4 come-from-behind victory.

There is always someone who has to be different, and won't
go along with the crowd. In today's Michigan Student
Assembly election there are 13 of these individuals who
decline to be categorized along a party line - the indepen-
Many independent candidates said that it was simply the
time factor, that stopped them from joining a party. "There
was no time to set up a party that I would feel comfortable
with," said Joe Devyak, a sophomore running for LSA
ROB LARSON, an engineering sophomore agreed. "I
decided to run close to election time," he said. "But if you're
not in a party you can have your own views."
"I cnt, support all the issues on any of the slates," said
Steve Heyman, a junior running for LSA representative.
Heyman said, for example, that he disagrees with VOICE's
stance on the prohibition of military research because it
violate "rights guaranteed by the First Amendment." He
also disagrees with MUM's stance that political activity is a
bad thing: "It is selfish to say that all we have to be concer-
ned about is us," he said.
DEVYAK and roommate Richard Monto, also an LSA
sophomore, said they decided to run for MSA because the
assembly did not have enough conservative members to
fairly represent the student body. The assembly also concen-
trates too heavily on "foreign policy," Devyak said.
"Our strategy is unique in that we plan on going door-to-
door to campaign in the dorms," Devyak said. "We have also
received some special endorsements from (Michigan
basketball players) Gary Grant, Garde Thompson, Steve
Some of the independents have raised issues outside of
those put forth by the parties. LSA junior Bill Wehrle is
proposing a "Fair Grade initative " which would urge the
faculty to put less emphasis on final exams and more on
other graded work.
"We've all had a class where the final is worth 50 percent of
the grade," he said, "but the grades don't accurately reflect
what (the student) has learned."
Larson is proposing incorporating an honor system in all of
the University's schools and colleges similar to the one used

locations around campus. A complete list of polling

which immediately had 65 signatures,

Organizers said they would urge
faculty members to hold their classes
off campus as a way of showing support
for the demonstrating students.
