'M'claws
Cougars
for clean
79-62 win
By TOM KEANEY
Nothing flashy, just big guys
beating up on little guys.
In what can only be called a well-
rounded effort, Michigan soundly
efeated Chicago State 79-62 last night
at Crisler Arena.
IT WAS a prohibitive victory yes,
but not the way the score might in-
dicate. The Cougars were no
pushovers, but they were overmat-
ched.
"I enjoyed playing this game
because they were a very quick team,
like a bunch of piranhas," said
Michigan head coach Bill Frieder.
"We had to work hard for what we
got. They kept us on our toes."
There were no long strings of unan-
swered points for the Wolverines, no
two-handed monster jams, but
Michigan quietly controlled nearly
every aspect of the game.
ALSO PLEASANT. from Bill
Frieder's standpoint was the all-of-
the-sudden offensive production of

PIRGIM

Eight Pages
pushes

for optional fee

By EVE BECKER
The Public Interest Research
Group in Michigan (PIRGIM) plans
to seek student support for a new fee
system which would charge each
student two dollars per term, unless
the student specifically requests
otherwise.
PIRGIM members yesterday sent a
letter to James Brinkerhoff, the
University's vice president and chief
financial officer, announcing a plan-
ned February petition drive which
must solicit over 50 percent of the
student body to put the group's new
plan on either student's tuition bills or
Student Verification Forms.
PIRGIM MEMBERS remained un-
certain which option they would pur-
sue, but any petition to put the
organization on the tuition bills must
be approved by the regents, one of
whom yesterday expressed opposition
to the plan.
PIRGIM, a student-run citizen
group concerned with statewide and
campus legislative issues, had

received funding for 14 years from
Student Verification Forms, where
each student indicated whether they
wanted to make a two dollar con-
tribution..
Last February, however, the regen-
ts voted 6-1 to end this funding con-
tract with the University, and
PIRGIM members insist the donation
system they were forced to employ
has hurt the group's image and finan-
cialstatus.
GARY KALMAN, campus staff for
PIRGIM, said the drop in student
support no longer enables the
organization to be a strong force in the
community.
"We just can't keep operating the
way we've been. It just doesn't do
what a PIRG is set up to do," Kalman
said.
He emphasized that a successful
petition drive would help restore
PIRGIM's image as an effective
student organization.
"THE STUDENTS will be part of a
majority supporting PIRGIM. The

difference is the message it will give
students," Kalman predicted.
Steve Johnson, the chair of
PIRGIM's state and local boards of
directors, agreed that the current
period of funding by donation ruined
PIRGIM's image because, he said,
group members harassed studentsi;in
registration lines with pleas for a con-
tribution.
Both Johnson and Kalman seem
confident that the student body will
prove sympathetic to their plight,
however, even though only 11.6 per-
cent of the student paid the PIRGIM
fee as recently as 1984.
JOHNSON FEELS "this is
something that for the most part
students agree with," because
"PIRGIM is an independent group not
under the dominion of the ad-
ministration."
He added that a system in which
students are automatically charged
for PIRGIM would resemble 'a

Minority
students
push for
unity

By REBECCA BLUMENSTEIN
Students representing different
minority associations are meeting in-
formally to unify and combat a "lack
of support" from the University. This
is the first time that such a group has
met to discuss problems at the
University.
The members of the group feel
that the University treats each
minority group separately and dif-
ferently. Members say this treatment
creates an atmosphere of competition
between the different minorities.
"THE NEED to develop central
issues instead of diversity is crucial,"
said Dean Goto, one of the vice
presidents of the Asian American
Association.

Prof. performs
Dickens to
promote peace

By MARTHA SEVETSON
Snow was falling softly outside the
windows of the South Quad lounge
last Thursday. Inside, students
were seated in front of a crackling
fire, whispering as they waited for the
dignified arrival of a storyteller from
Christmases past.
Their whispers faded when Charles
Profile
Dickens, carrying a book and a glass
of water, entered the lounge a few
minutes later and took his place at a
desk draped with a red velvet cloth.
THE BEARDED figure dressed in a
black tuxedo didn't tell his audience
he was actually English Prof. Bert Hor-
' nback, launching into a reading of A
Christmas Carol, the tale of a miser
who learns the spirit of giving to
others one lonely Christmas.
But the sandy-haired, 49-year-old
professor did ask his listeners to
repeat after him words Dickens might
have said: "Christmas doesn't belong
to just one season of the year; when
we learn to live by Christmas, we will
make this world a very different
place."

After the performance ended an
hour later, Hornback changed his
clothes back to jeans and a cotton
shirt. Then he put on a brass belt
buckle shaped in a peace sign - a
symbol that while Hornback had shif-
ted his appearance to the 20th cen-
tury, he had retained the 19th century
social critic's ideals.
LIKE DICKENS, Hornback
believes in making the world a better
place through peace and personal
choice to do what is "right," rather
than through revolution.
"(Dickens) determined that change
could come through personal and
metaphysical revolution," Hornback
explained earlier in an interview at
his home. "I really do think that if
ever we can manage to think
straight, we could change the world."
Hornback said his interest in
Dickens began when he was a
graduate student in English at Notre
Dame. Hornback had once considered
a career in journalism, a profession
Dickens himself pursued as a budding
writer.
Our Mutual Friend was the first
work of Dickens Hornback read as a
graduate student. The following
summer he read all of Dickens' other
books, David Copperfield, a novel

of the chimneys," said Hostedler, 32, who started
Clean-Sweep two years ago. "We can see things that
just couldn't be seen before." While his assistant,
Michael Dobies manipulates a pole to lower a 12-inch
scanner down the chimney, Hostedler sits in front of a
screen observing the nictures and giving instructions.
