BEST DAILY FOUL-UPS,
BLEEPS, AND
BLUNDERS
The Michigan Daily is the vanguard
of truth. the guardian of accuracy
But sometimes we mess up. After the
space and shuttle Challenger blew up,
the Daily ran a picture of a giant
smoke svan on the iront page;
:U'aiing smoke as it plummeted to the
sea - sided ays. Another tine. in a
store about a speech by business

Pickens as having a big vs ad of tobac-

BEST BOOST FOR THE
UNIVERSITY'S EGO
At dawn on the Diag last October, a
man sat beside University President
Harold Shapiro. Before them was a
television camera broadcasting their
conversation to the country, and
around them were throngs of en-
thusiastic "Go Blue" types. Some of
them even dressed up in grass skirts,
so they could stand next to a fat man
with a mink coat talking about the
weather.The Today show had come to
campus, and it brought with it a
University publicity orgasm. The
University even painted the M on the
Diag blue and posted a security guard
to watch it all night. Officials also
roped off the Diag to keep less-than-

enthusiastic Wolverines from tar-

ivory tower.
BEST '60s
FLASHBACKS
In a year that saw the return

Today show when the University'
marching band played *Hail tc tht

outside the roped-off confines of the
Diag, students tried to out-shout
fine broadcast journalism of Bryant
Gumble. Protesters opposed NBC's
lack of coverage of the U.S. aid for El
Salvadorean government. An ever
bigger embarrassment for the
University occurred when demon-
strators protested a speech by Vice
President George Bush - the whole
country's Vice-President for Christ's
sake - On the steps of the Michigan
Union. Bush spoke about the Peace
Corps, but the protesters didn't think
Bush made such a swell advocate of
peace. The students angered other
students who couldn't hear Bush
speak about protests not being
possible "over in ole Lening Square"
in the Soviet Union. But these protests
didn't bring about arrests - which
makes a protest exciting. Back in Oc-
tober, 29 students were arrested over
two days for opposing the Central In-
telligence Agency's recruitment on
campus. And last month, over a hun-
dred demonstrators, mostly Univer-
sity students, were arrested while en-
