The Game has finally

squads meet, both are in the top

Irish' fight for foot ball tickets

Hail to the victors. M Go Blue.
The Wolverines are No. 1. Go Irish.
Go Irish? Yes, that's right. The
Fighting Irish are in town and so
are their fans-at least they will be

opener will feature punts, passes,
tackles, touchdowns and, of cour-
se, the wave.
It will also feature one of the
largest crowds of the season. "I
don't know if this or the Ohio State
game will attract more fans. They
will definitely be the top two," said
Wilbert Perry, the University's
assistant athletic director.
The contest is expected to draw
about 104,000 screaming fans, but
not all of them will be rootinf for
the maize and blue.
PAT NOONAN, a junior at Notre
Dame, won't be cheering for the
Wolverines. After a 2%-hour car
ride from Notre Dame in South
Bend, Ind. to Ann Arbor, he'll start
looking for a ticket today.
"They gave Notre Dame 5,000
tickets for the game," he said.
"Four thousand eight hundred,
however, are going to alumni. Only
2,000 tickets were saved for studen-
ts which were given out in a lot-

practically the whole campus is
trying to get up to the game," he
Mark McGovern, a Notre Dame
senior, is also scrambling for
tickets. He'll travel to Ann ARbor
to find one if he can get a ride.
"Tickets have been real hard to
come by. There was a mad scram-
ble to get the few tickets available.
I'm hoping to find someone up thgere
to buy them from."
A SPOKESPERSON FOR United
Limo and Indiana Motor Bus in South
Bend said seven busloads of fans and
private groups are headed for Ann
Arbor for the weekend.
But scalpers aren't making sales

ACCORDING TO a scalper who
said his name was Tillie Willie,
selling-and getting a good price for
the tickets-takes more than luck. It
requires strategy. "I stock up on all

members-came amid growing
pressure from black student leaders
to appoint a minority candidate to the
"I JUST don't feel comfortable
making a decision by 5 p.m. Friday,"
Josephson said, referring to the
assembly's original deadline for a
nomination. "I don't feel that I have
enough information and I don't feel
that I've screened enough people."
Josephson, who pledged to increase
minority participation in MSA during
his campaign for president, has stated
that he is actively considering
minority candidates for the post.
Several black student leaders have
strongly endorsed LSA seniuor Phillip
Cole as a potential vice president.
Cole, who could not be reached for
comment yesterday, has served on
MSA's Budget Priorities Committee
for the past two years.
"JUST BECAUSE they want a

Eight-year-old Wook Hyun Nam of
South Korea is expected to undergo
heart surgery this morning, Dr. Ed-
ward Bove, chief of pediatric cardiac
surgery said yesterday.
Nam is the second patient in
University Hospitals new Inter-
national Children's Heart Program.
He follows another South Korean,
Suk San Hong, wh underwent suc-
cessful surgery Wednesday. Both suf-
fered from a congenital heart defect
that causes cyanosis.
AFTER surgery on Wednesday,
Hong was listed in critical condition.
His progress has been steady, though,
and last night he was listed in good
condition. He was also placed on a
liquid diet last night, according to
Director of Public and Market
Relations John Turck.
Cyanosis, a blue discoloration of the
lips and skin, is the result of a lack of
oxygenated blood. This deficiency is
caused by a large hole in the wall
which separates the lower chambers
of the heart, combined with an ob-
struction to the normally lung-bound
blood. Consequently, the blood is
redirected straight to the person's
body, resulting in the blue color.
Nam and hong are the first subjects
of a project designed to provide
special medical help to children who
do not have access to the proper
medical facilities. Often a trip to the
facilities is too far or too expensive.
THE FUNDS to start the program
were provided by Tom and Cathy
McDonald of Syracuse, New York.
About two years ago, Bove performed
heart surgery on the McDonald's son,
and the McDonalds decided to show
move how grateful they were for
helping their son return to a healthy
life. When Bove needed funds to start
the University's Heart Program, the
McDonalds saw the opportunity they
had waited for.
"We're private people," said Cathy
McDonald. "You do things because
they're right, not for notoriety."
"They were grateful they had
money to help others," said Bove.
CURRENTLY, 1,000 children are
being considered for the program.
Harriet Hodges of Seoul, South Korea,
the International Human Assistance
program in New York, and other
sources refer potential patients to
Bove. Then, Bove determines how
serious the patient's condition is and
whether help is readily available at
the University Hospitals.
The process of choosing patients is
extremely difficult because facilities
for the proper diagnosis are often
inadequate in their local area.
Bove hopes that the program will
some day be monetarily self-
sufficient, so that it can continue to
help those in need. To help ensure
this, Bove, the cardiologists,
radiologists, and anesthesiologists
have waived their professional fees,
so that the money can be used mainly
for hospital costs.
"I talked to the cardiologists,
radiologists, and anesthesiologists
and they happily waived their fees,"
One chaperone is sent with each
patient. The government or the family
pays for the air fare. Once the patien-
ts are in town, people such as Dr. Li of
the Korean Society of Ann Arbor

minority VP doesn't mean it'll have
an effect on what I do," Josephson
said. "They've given me some oppor-
tunities to evaluate the minority can-
didates and I'm accepting all of their
Josephson confirmed that Cole who
has been labeled conservative, has
expressed an interest in the position.
"I certainly think he'd be a very
viable candidate, and he does have a
strong backing from the minority
community," Josephson said, adding
that Cole "has a lot of experience at
MSA and he does know the University
LAWRENCE NORRIS, chairman of
MSA's Minority Affairs Committe,
said he supports Cole for vice
"Philip Cole would be an excellent
choice. He really-knows a lot about the
issues at MSA and he really knows the
University well-not just the minority
community," he said.
"It's very important to fill the
position with a minority to further in-
crease our choice in the decision-
making process of MSA and to reaf-
firm Josephson's commitment to
minorities," Norris said.

Male students who receive financial
aid will not be required to show
college officials proof that they have
registered for the draft, although they
must still signa form saying they have
complied with the law.
THE CONTROVERSIAL rule to
require proof of draft registration was
quietly dropped by the Department of
Education because the rate of com-
pliance among young men is so high
that is wasn't necessary to have
college aid administrators police the
law, an education spokesperson said
Originally the verification rule was
part of a law passed by Congress in
1982 and dubbed the Solomon Amen-
dment, after its sponsor Gerald
Solomon (R-New York). But the role
was not set to go into effect until this
fall because of the controversy
surroundits implementation at
college financial aid offices.
Harvey Grotrain, the University's
director of financial aid, said the
verification rule was put on hold by
the education department because it
was very unpopular.
IN ADDITION, an education depar-
tment study on the Solomon Amen-
dment that was published last winter
found that well over 90 percent of
those who signed forms saying they
had registered for the draft actually
were legally registered, Grotrain
This study led the education depar-
tment to consider dropping the rule
and the University didn't make any
plans to enforce it, said Lynn Borset,
the University's assistant director of
Grorain said he was pleased to hear
that the verification rule had been
dropped. He added, however, that he
still opposes the principle of linking

'U' appeals divest-ment ruling
By KERY MURAKAMI
The University's chief attorney filed a suit Wednesday
with the Michigan Court of Appeals in an effort to over-
turn a recent court mandate for the University to sell its
South African-related investments.
The University currently has $5 million in investments
in companies that do business in South Africa.
THE APPEAL comes after Ingham County Circuit
Court Judge Caroline Stell ruled last month against the
University's claim that a 1982 state law requiring all state
universities to divest violates the University's con-
The University's regents, however, will not decide
whether to pursue the appeal until their monthly meeting
Thursday. The appeal was filed Wednesday without
regental approval, the Universities chief attorney
Roderick Daane said, because the University's deadline
to appeal expired then.
The regents are expected to appeal, but Barbara Ran-
sby, a Rackham graduate student and leader of the cam-
pus pro-divestment Free South Africa Coordinating
Committee, said yesterday the group would lobby the
regents next week to drop the appeal and divest com-
"THE UNIVERSITY has exhibited insensitivity towar-
ds the situation in South Africa and the plight of blacks in
that country," she said.
