Bo enters
hospital for
Michigan football head coach Bo Schembechler
yesterday joined the already long list of injured
Wolverines. Schembechler was rushed to St. Joseph
Mercy Hospital in Superior Township in the early
morning because of a kidney stone attack.
"He was in a lot of pain when he came in this
morning, but he is fine now," said Dr. Timothy
McHugh, chair of the eurology department at St.
Joseph, last night.
The winningest coach in Wolverine history should
be released this morning and can go back to work
today, according to McHugh.
"We treat presidents and popes, but it was still
exciting to treat such a celebrity," said McHugh. "He's
quite an enjoyable fellow when he is not on the
football field."
Schembechler has missed only one game since
being named Wolverine head coach. In his first season,
a heart attack forced him to miss the 1970 Rose Bowl
against Southern California. Defensive coordinator Jim
Young assumed coaching responsibilities for that
contest, and Michigan lost 10-3. It was the
Wolverines' first ever post-season defeat.
Schembechler is expected to be on the sidelines for
this Saturday's Big Ten opener against Wisconsin.
Schembechler holds a 17-1 record in conference
openers. The Badgers beat Michigan, 21-14, in 1981.
Schembechler, 58 and in his 19th year at Michigan,
is a virtual institution. The disciple of Ohio State's
Woody Hayes has never had a losing season as
Wolverine coach. He sports a 209-58-7 lifetime
coaching record, the winningest among N C A A
Division I active coaches. His .776 winning percentage
is the fourth-highest all-time among NCAA Division I
coaches, with over 150 victories.
Schembechler has been careful in recent years with
his diet and exercise because of his heart condition. He
underwent a quadruple bypass 11 years ago.
Yesterday's attack was not heart-related, McHugh
said. Dr. Hugh Solomon performed a surgical procedure
to push a large stone back into the kidney. A device
was installed in the left kidney to prevent 'the stone
from again blocking drainage. At his discretion,
Schembechler will have to undergo shock wave
treatment to shatter the stone so it finally will pass.
Offensive coordinator and assistant head coach Gary
Moeller ran practice yesterday. If Schembechler is not
ready for Saturday's game, Moeller will be in charge.

Group starts
plea for city
rent control

A group advocating rent control
presented its case last night with
tenants telling stories about bad
landlord experiences to an audience
of about 60 residents.
The Ann Arbor Citizens for Fair
Rents needs 5,000 registered Ann
Arbor voters' signatures by the end
of December to get its proposed rent
stabilization ordinance on next
April's election ballot. The ordi-
nance, completed last week, would
limit annual rent increases to 75
percent of the inflation rate.
"It doesn't seem like we have to
do that much to this ordinance to run
it and make it an efficient piece of
legislation," Mike Appel of Student
Legal Services told the crowd.
The ordinance would place a 15
percent total increase limit within
any given year, and establish a five-
member Rent Stabilization Board, to
be appointed by City Council for
reviewing all proposednrent increas-
The ordinance was prompted by
10 to 20 percent rent increases in re-
cent years - sometimes more than
five times the current inflation rate.
"I am a senior citizen whose in-
come is not going to get better,'"
Ann Arbor resident Jane Laing told
the audience at Community High
School, "and I'm not going to get
money from a rich aunt who is go-
ing to die; they've already died. And
I hope I'm not going to get priced
out of my shelter."
"It's not fair," said Cathy Cohen,

a University graduate student and
member of the city's Housing Board
for Appeals. "There's a picture that
it's a wonderful transition for stu-
dents to be poor... that's bullshit."
But local landlords are prepared to
fight the ordinance. City Coun-
cilmember Jeff Epton (D-Third
Ward) said last week that property
owners would spend up to $200,000
to lobby against the ordinance. Jim
Morris, a member of the Ann Arbor
Apartment Association, said land-
lords "have no idea" what their plans
are at this point.
University economics graduate
student and former candidate for state
representative Dean Baker said that
since a similar plan was established
in Berkeley in 1978, "We don't see
any of the horror stories we were
supposed to see. It's a good example
of what could happen in Ann Ar-
But two weeks ago, Severin
Borenstein, assistant professor of
economics and public policy, said
Berkeley's system has encouraged
landlords not to maintain high stan-
dards. "It led to a great decline in the
quality of apartments," he said.
Sharp rent increases in the last
few years, according to local
property manager Fred Gruber, have
been relative to the late 1970s.
Gruber has said rent prices remained
constant during those years because
of fixed long-term financing. But the
financing terms ended and banks
raised their rates, prompting land-
lords to increase rent prices in order
to catch up.

'U' Hospital cafeteria
promotes healthy eating

The mystery at University Hospital began
with the signs. Many signs. Yellow and red
signs that lined the hospital walls for weeks.
Signs that shouted:
"HEP is coming! ...September 28."
HEP? The employees were baffled, to say
the least. But they knew to expect something
significant. After all, this was the prestigious
University of Michigan Hospital - where
knowledge heals, where disease meets its

The employees assumed HEP would surely
stand for something like "Hydromechanical
Electroencephiagram Prognostacator" or
"Heartwave Ectoplasmic Propulsion."
But when the mystery was finally solved
Monday, it wasn't in the laboratory. It was
inside the hospital cafeteria, where Clinical
Dietitian Connie Langkabel introduced the
"new, different, and exciting" Healthy Eating
Program to employees and guests.

Student practices music career

Darryl Pitt followed an abnormal
career path. He dropped out of the
University, forsaking a degree in bi-
ology, and took up professional
photography. Now, in his early 30s,
he manages internationally renowned
As a University student in the
1970s, Pitt pursued his interest in
photography by taking pictures for


the world.' And then it dawned on
me. Perhaps I could get money for
this," he said.
Communication department chair
Frank Beaver - who once instructed
Pitt - recalls how Pitt was able to
capture the essence of art in his
photographs. "I remember even
when he was an undergraduate how
his work stood out," Beaver said.
THE EXPOSURE and quality
of his work prompted Rolling Stone
to offer Pitt a job in 1976. "I
thought, and my friends thought,
that this was the absolute greatest
thing in the world. So I took the job
as an assistant where I was
guaranteed a certain number of photo
assignments as a photographer."
Along with his job at Rolling
Stone, Pitt photographed for Time,
Life, Newsweek, Forbes, and For-
tune magazines. But Pitt's exten-
sive involvement in photography
forced him to leave the University
before earning his degree. Although

he has no regrets about the past, he
believes .he would do things differ-
ently now.
"In retrospect, with the wisdom I
have now, I probably would have
stayed in school," said Pitt. "This is
what I encourage students to do. Just
graduate and get it done."
TODAY, Pitt vows that in the
near future, he will earn a degree. "I
will graduate. I'm gonna take care
of it. I want to graduate," he said.
"The problem is that while I was
in school I never took full advantage
of what a college education is. When
I speak with most of my friends,
most of us are guilty of that," he
"We don't realize what a fantastic
opportunity it is to be in an
environment where you're just being
encouraged to have a good time and
learn. And just do those things and
exploit it... You won't really have
another opportunity quite like that,"
he said.

In 1979, Pitt became the official
photographer for the Montreaux Jazz
Festival in Switzerland. "It's an ex-
traordinary festival in Switzerland
where there's so much amazing mu-
sic. One of the things that really
knocked me out... was this guy
named Andreas Vollenweider," re-
called Pitt.
P ITT developed a close
friendship with Vollenweider -- a
current forerunner of the "New Age"
musical movement - while
shooting the musician at jazz
festivals and photo sessions in
Europe. Vollenweider knew that Pitt
photographed several popular
musicians in the United States and
this prompted him to ask Pitt for
advice concerning the music
"He (Vollenweider) knew I was
working for Diana Ross and Neil
Diamond and he would ask me,
'what do I do about this, about my

About 150 students and Ann Ar-
bor residents gathered on the Diag
last night to vent their anger over
Monday's acquittal of a former Uni-
versity student in a rape trial. The
protestors accused the University of
failing to provide a safe environment
for women.
Cathy Cohen, a University
graduate student who organized the
rally with Students Against Rape,
said, "We're here to protest the non-
guilty verdict and to show support
for the survivor."
"The University is basically an
unsafe environment for women .and
the administration should take re-
sponsibility to develop policies to
protect women on campus," Cohen
Chanting "Rich, white, Michigan
degree - rape a woman and you'll
go free!" the group marched at 10
p.m. to University President Harold
Shapiro's house on South Universi-
The group gathered on Shapiro's
lawn. Leaders, with bullhorns,
knocked on his door. "Hey Shapiro,
are you a lame duck? Take action
now, your fraternities suck!" and
"Hey hey! Ho ho! This rape and
violence has got to go!"
When Shapiro opened the door,

representatives from the group ques-
tioned him, but he refused to com-
ment on the trial.
"I was not at the trial; I don't
know all the details and I have no
comment on the trial whatsoever,"
Shapiro said. "The fraternity system
is not part of the University."
An angry voice cried from the
crowd, "Anything can happen there
and the University has no responsi-
"That's correct," Shapiro said. He
said the University has started sever-
al rape prevention programs: Safe-
walk, the Sexual Assault Prevention
and Awareness Center, and the Nite
Owl nighttime bus service.
Shapiro said the administration
has unsuccessfully tried in the past
to deal with similar situations by
implementing a code of non-
academic conduct. He said a code
would enable the University to take
action against students who commit
Upon request, Shapiro agreed to
meet with members of Students
Against Rape as soon as possible.
Cohen said the group will present
him with a list of demands to im-
prove campus safety and awareness
about rape.
