The University's men's
cheerleading squad will be cut from

accordance with Big Ten rules. The
cut will become effective tonight as
a committee appointed by Don
Canham, Director of Athletics,
chooses new members.
The committee consists of Don
Treviline, the squad's current
advisor, Bob DeCarolis, an
administrative associate in the
Athletic Department; Howard Brab-
son, an associate professor in the
School of Social Work; and Bob
Darden, the men's gymnastics

Treviline said, "I've been with
the squad forsover a year, I think I
should know something by now."
In the past, new members were
chosen by the team's captains, the
coach, and senior members. Neither
Frey or Seymour knew why
Canham created the committee this
According to Frey, "They're
stripping down the program to its
bare bones. We were looked up to

According to Seymour, reducing
the number of members would
limit the amount of stunts
cheerleaders can perform. Frey feels
that stunts become more dangerous
with fewer members performing it.
"They (the Athletic Department)
want us to be cheerleaders like we
were in the 70s," Seymour said.

from enforcing city codes. "En-
forcement is not a high priority in
the way I spend my time," she said.
Pierce said "It's unfortunate but
we have a lot of laws on the books
which are poorly enforced. I wish
we did a better job enforcing them."
"I'd like to tell you that if I'm
re-elected that will change," he said,
drawing laughter from the crowd of

Pierce's opponent, Council-
member Gerald Jernigan (R-Fourth
Ward), said the city should add more
staffers and perhaps pay citizens to
help enforce city services.
Jernigan reiterated his support
for adding more police officers to
combat the city's crime rate, which
rose 17 percent in 1986. Pierce has
questioned whether adding officers
would help reduce crime.
Ray Detter, a local resident, said
he is concerned about the crime rate

Neither candidate supported the
tax. Pierce said it would restrict the
business's civil liberties.
