This year, the shoe is on the other
One year ago this week, Michigan
was 4-3 and coming off a 26-0
shellacking at the hands of the Iowa
Hawkeyes. Illinois was only 5-3, but
the Fighting Illini were coming off an
impressive 34-20 win over Purdue and
appeared ready to make a move in
the Big Ten.
ILLINOIS came into Ann Arbor a
prohibitive favorite, but Michigan
promptly gave the Fighting Illini a
swift kick pulling off a 26-18 upset. For
a downtrodden Wolverine team, it
was one of the few highlights of the
1984 season.
This year, the roles are reversed.
Illinois started out as one of the
* nation's top ranked teams, but losses
to USC, Nebraska and Purdue have
knocked it out of the top 20. Michigan,
on the other hand, has made its well-
documented meteroic rise from ob-
scurity to the upper echelons of the
national rankings, and there is
nothing Illinois would like more than

The college of LSA will guarantee
some incoming freshmen a place in
University graduate schools when
they are admitted as undergraduates
in an attempt to encourage students to
broaden their education.

proponent of the program, said he

STEINER SAID the "Preferred Ad-
missions" program is designed for
"students who are obsessed with
potential admission to graduate
programs. This will relieve some of
that tension." Steiner hopes the new
program will allow students to take
courses that they otherwise might

its preliminary stages, freshmen who
plan to go on to a certain professional
school would be guaranteed ad-

Providing scholarships to black
South Africans is one alternative to
divestment in trying to help blacks in
South Africa, 13 university presidents
said in a meeting in New York earlier
this month.
Among those attending was Univer-
sity of Michigan President Harold
"FUNDS are needed to ensure a
steady increase in the number of
black South Africans attending South
African universities as un-
dergraduates and postgraduates,"
Stuart Saunders, vice chancellor and

principal of the University of
Capetown in South Africa, said at the
He said each student would need
about $2,500 to attend his university in
1985, far above what most South
African blacks can afford to pay.
Susan Lipschutz, a philosophy
professor and assistant to Shapiro,
said the University has awarded four
full scholarships to black students
from South Africa since 1981; one of
whom graduated last year.
SHE SAID, however, there has been
no discussions about expanding its
program or beginning support for

RSG turnout exceeds expectations

Only 91 of over 3,600 eligible voters cast their ballots in
the two-day Rackham Student Government elections
which concluded yesterday, exceeding by 31 the number
of votes cast in last winter's elections.
Six positions were up for election this fall; two seats in
each of three divisions. Five write-in candidates and only
one of two filed candidates were seated last night.
VICTORIOUS in the physical sciences and engineering
division were Edward Hellen, a physics research
assistant (26 votes), and Alice Haddy, secretary for the
Graduate Employees Organization (19 votes).

Set in the biological sciences division were two write-in
candidates, Biology teaching assistant Margaret Reeves
(26 votes) and Rackham student Lianna Barbar (25

toral candidate George Junne (6 votes), Steve Ruffins (2
RSG President Dean Baker said last night he was
pleased with the turnout, citing the improvement over last
fall's numbers.
"More people may have voted because RSG has gotten
involved in more controversial issues," said Baker, poin-
ting to their resolution last month condemning the visit of

The roof of an underground
utilities chamber adjacent to the
Dow Engineering Building on North
Campus collapsed yesterday after-
noon, forcing the evacuation of hun-
dreds of students and faculty and the
cancellation of classes.
No injuries were reported in the
incident, according to campus
security officer David Dupuis.
Associate engineering dean
Charles Vest said the building will
reopen today.
THE CHAMBER housed air-
conditioning, electrical, and other
utility equipment that provided ser-
vice to a basement area of the Dow
building in which a library, study
area, and computer laboratories had
recently been constructed.
"Structurally, the room appears
to be destroyed, but we don't know
what damage was done to the
equipment," Vest said.
Construction project superinten-
dent Mike Sweitzer said he suspected
