The 1985-86 academic year was
more than studying and exams for
(he University. The Fiesta Bowl

one percent of $50 million in invest-
n nts it held three years ago. Im-
mediately afterward, and without
discussion, the .regents pass a
tesolution supporting University
researchers who do Strategis Defense
