Little sibs to descend upon 'U'
By ELLEN FIEDEHOLTZ
Though going away to school
usually means getting rid of your little
brothers and sisters, some people at
the University would like you to
swallow your pride and play host to
those charming, considerate brats for
one short weekend.
The third annual Lil' Sibs Weekend,
scheduled for March 14-16 and spon-
sored by the Student Alumni Council
(SAC) will give students the chance to
show their brothers and sisters what
college is really like.
ACTIVITIES planned for the
weekend include a roller skating party
on Friday night, and a magic show
and a pizza party on Saturday.
For a $3 registration fee, students
will receive admission tickets to all
the scheduled events plus coupons
from several local merchants.
Although the activities appear to be
geared towards younger children,
SAC coordinator Chris Oldenberg
points out that most events have been
well attended in the past. Last year,
264 siblings participated.
According to Oldenberg, "it's
never too early to instill the Michigan
spirit, no matter how young."
LSA freshman Don Bornstein is
looking forward to spending the
weekend with his twelve year-old
sister. He thinks the experience will
give her a good taste of college life.
"She'll learn what being - a
Wolverine is all about," Bornstein
SAC Vice President of Program-
ming Bonnie Sherr hopes for a big
turn-out. She said several Michigan
football players are helping out by
appearing at the pizza party.

"The point was not that other
organizations weren't addressing their
needs, but that a group of minority
graduate students could broaden this
base," Jones said.
CATHERNE Tate, M.O.R.'s
president agrees. "Although the
group is formed of different minority
groups, everyone has experienced
some sort of discrimination. Through
meeting and closely working with
organizations like Michigan Student
Assembly and Black Student Union,
we hope to solve some of the existing
These problems include financial
aid, housing and the relationship of
minority students to each other and
the faculty. "Most minority students
have an extremely hard time finding
a professor who they feel can be their
mentor," said La Veist.
According to Marilyn Gordon, coor-
dinator for graduate minority affairs,
minority students often perceive
themselves as outside the central core
of the school. "Rackham is a very
decentralized and independent place,
and often one finds himself in a
terribly lonely tunnel," she added.
BESIDES providing a contact for
minority students throughout
Rackham, many are especially op-
timistic about M.O.R.'s potential in-
fluence on minority admission, which
stood at 7.7% in Rackham as of last
fall. Undergraduate minority
enrollment starts at 5.2% for the year.
"Our best salespeople are students,
and the currently enrolled minority
students can play an extremely big
role in attracting more," Jones said.
According to LaVeist, M.O.R. wants
to be both the formal and informal
place to voice minority concerns.
Although only officially begun last
fall, the group hopes that the 200
students who have expressed interest
will become involved.
"The very fact that they have says Groespeck. "This kind of respon-
spoken means that some of their ex- se is exactly what is needed," he ad-
pressed sentiments will be heard," ded.

She believes that modern research
like her own is changing these
discriminations of history.
In searching for the identity of
"women's culture," Berkin hopes that
through her work, women will be able
to consult history books to find
"something familiar in other mem-
bers of the gender itself." This will
fuel the emancipation of women she
believes, and will provide the impetus
for further work in women's studies.
"AS LONG as work in the field con-
tinues to excite students, I think
women's history will survive."
Women's roles in history will
highlight this weekend's events,
which will also "recognize, affirm,
and celebrate the accomplishments of
women in various fields," according
to Deba Potnik, the building director
of East Quad. He played a large role
in coordinating Women's Week.

artist in New York City-without ever having to starve!" -Theatre student from Mt. Prospect,

be walking down Madison Avenue window shopping, I would have said 'You're crazy.'
But I'm here and loving New York." -Communications student from Boulder, Colorado. "The
practical experience and business contacts I received from my internship were invalu-

T'm a classical music buff.
But, hey, I'm a pretty cool
guy too. I mean, I can kick up a storm on a dance
- floor that a girl would think she's out on the Mojave
-not taking a twirl at the local pub.
Well, last week I had a big party. At the last minute, I went to get some
tunes for the party tape. Problem was-I got, once again, hooked on the clas-j
sic. I only brought enough cash for Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky.
Sure, I felt guilty. But all I could get myself to do was return two piano concer-
tos for two reggae disco albums.
Well, despite serving enough food and drink to feed a summer camp of
sumo wrestlers, the party was a disaster. I was a dervish of the dance, rede-
fining the concept of gyration itself. But I was alone out there. Not one other
person could get down to the rocking syncopation of the "Emperor Concerto"
What's wrong with these people? Or is it me?
Lighten up, Ludwig. Not everyone can move from the sublime to the
ridiculous with such ease and grace. There's nothing wrong with you or your
friends. Just with your shopping habits.
Most people never agree with their friends' tastes. One likes the Roman-
tic period, the other likes New Wave. One wants to see the latest horror movie,
the other sees only art films. You got caught short.
So next time you go out, remember to take along the American Express
