Greeks may face



The Ann Arbor Planning Commission appears
Deady to approve a rezoning proposal for the North
hurns Park area that would prevent fraternities and
sororities from building new houses or expanding
zxisting ones.
"It seems pretty clear we'll support it," said
,ommission vice-chairman Allan Feldt. "The
-ezoning makes sense, and I don't think it's imposing
big strain on the fraternities and sororities." The
zoning was proposed by a neighborhood association

Proposal would limit new houses, additions

THE PROPOSAL, which will be debated at a
public hearing next Tuesday, would change city
zoning laws to prohibit "group housing" on 45 of 66
lots in the area south of Hill Street and west of
Washtenaw Avenue. If approved by the commission
and then by the Ann Arbor City Council, the
rezoning would allow only single- and double-family

residential groups, according to Jerry Clarke, a staff
planner for the City Planning Department. The
proposal would allow groups already living in the
area to remain.

Clarke said the department, which advises the
planning commission, will endorse on Friday a
"scaled-back version" of the proposal submitted by
the North Burns Park Association. Association

U-Cellar closes.
after years of
student service

The University Cellar has closed
its doors for good, but at least one
official has predicted that the
Cellar's departure will not
necessarily lead to higher book
The Cellar closed its Central and
North Campus locations Dec. 24
after Citizens Trust refused to renew
the store's $700,000 line of credit

Campus branch, said Cellar
manager Jane Self.
"We were more in default, we
lost money this year, and we
changed loan officers in the middle
of the summer. They were
generally uneasy about our
organization," said Self. The Cellar
defaulted on a clause in its contract
with Citizens Trust requiring them
to keep $200,000 in working
capital. The bookstore lost
$140,000 this year.
THE CELLAR made money
only once - in 1985 - since its

Special to the Daily
PASADENA, Calif. - Blame the turf. Blame the
fans. Blame Disneyland. Even blame the weather.
Yes, "blame" was the functional word for Michigan
in the 1987 Rose Bowl. But for whatever reason one
cites for this year's Big Ten collapse, the final result of
this year's Rose Bowl was all too predictable.
Michigan took a 12-point lead before 103,168 fans
before falling to Arizona State last Thursday in
Pasadena 22-15.
Excuses were made, but the reasons for the loss
were simple. Football games are usually won on the
line of scrimmage, and that's where Michigan lost this
one. Arizona State dominated both sides of the line,
whether giving Sun Devil running back Darryl Harris
(23 carries, 112 yards) gaping holes or constantly
harassing Michigan quarterback Jim Harbaugh, who
tossed three interceptions.
MICHIGAN finished at 11-2, and ranked eighth
by both wire service polls, while Schembechler is now
1-7 in the Rose Bowl.

After the Internal Revenue Service faulted that

key factor in determining whether work uniforms
are deductible is that they may not be suitable for

this case, the court added, "It is relatively
