Brown throws for three TDs
By RICK KAPLAN
Demetrius Brown's stock was lower than the Dow
Jones after last week's seven-interception outing in a
17-11 loss to Michigan State.
But the Wolverine quarterback rallied against Iowa
Saturday. At the closing bell, the redshirt sophomore
had completed 14 of 19 passes for 190 yards and three
touchdowns. Behind Brown's resurgence and a strong
defensive performance, the Wolverines liquified the
Brown's boom was strongest in the second quarter.
Michigan (4-2 overall, 2-1 Big Ten) held a 6-0 lead at
the start of the period. The Wolverines scored on the
first and last plays of the quarter. Advances led declines
by 24 points in the period, as Michigan opened a 30-10
The most active stock was Brown's. The lefthander
reached a new high for his Michigan career the week
after Black Saturday. "Aren't you glad for him?" asked
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler. "He's an amazingly
resiliant kid. He came back to practice Monday with a
good attitude, standing tall. He was impressive."
WOLVERINE receiver Greg McMurtry had some
impressive words of wisdom for Brown after the
Michigan State crash. "I told him every dog has its
day, and every day has its dog," McMurtry said. "Today
was his day."
"Quarterbacks have ups and downs," Brown said. "I
just played the way I know I can."
After Mike Gillette opened the second quarter with a
42-yard field goal, Brown became the dominant player
on the field. On theWolverines' next two possessions,
he drove the team down the field with an effective
short-passsing attack. Brown threw touchdown passes
to cap both marches, the first a 35-yarder to John
Kolesar, the second a 12-yard strike to McMurtry.
"We told him to check underneath coverage and not
go up field all the time," said Schembechler. "So he

Faculty examine needs
By EVE BECKER
The University needs to re-order
its priorities, reevaluating under-
graduate teaching, increasing diver-
sity, and addressing growing concerns
of the faculty about University
governance and individual autonomy.
At least that is the message of a
report released to the public Friday
by a regent-appointed faculty group
which studied the University's needs
in its search for a new president.
The 15-member faculty advisory
committee presented its critical
examination of the state of the
University to the regents in July.
The regents considered this report,
along with reports from students and
alumni, during the summer when
they developed their selection criteria
for a new University president.
The next step in the presidential
selection process will be to have each
of the advisory committees help the
regents narrow the list of nominees.
r The faculty advisory committee's
16-page document poses the ques-
tions, but not the answers, which a
new administration must address in
order to maintain excellence in its
Key areas targetted by the report
-increasing diversity in racial,
ethnic, religious, and socio-economic
compostion of the faculty, student
body, and administrative staff;
-developing a supportive, rather
than overly-centralized administration
which does not intrude into
-encouraging cooperation between
units in the schools and colleges,
eliminating unhealthy competition
and increasing cross-disciplinary
-examining the balance of research
'improving the quality of under-
graduate teaching, including
strengthening basic sciences while
maintaining strength in humanities
and social sciences;
-supporting faculty by increasing
salaries, benefits, and support serv-
ices, and improving teaching by
rewarding merit and improving in-
ferior performance by development
and training programs; and
-improving the quality of student
life by increasing financial aid,
improving physical facilities, and
improving contact with faculty in an
enviroment which is sensitive and
encouraging to students.
Regent Paul Brown (D-Petoskey)
said the faculty's report was "the sort
of report we wanted," because it
helped to assess the University's
needs in the selection of a new pres-
"I don't think there were any big
areas where we disagreed," Brown
said, "obviously not everything was
included (in the list of 18 criteria
developed by the regents) but it's not
really because we disagreed."
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline),
co-chair of the preseidential selection
committee, said the concerns ment-
ioned by the faculty have been
continuous concerns over the years.
"It's a continuous tension that
exists between the central admin-
istration and the administration of the

VP leaves assemblyV
for personal reasons
By ANDREW MILLS
Citing personal and academic
reasons, LSA senior Rebecca Felton
will resign her position as Michigan
Student Assembly Vice President at
tomorrow night's asembly meeting.
Felton announced the move last
Friday, but said she made the
decision to resign early last week.
Felton said the resignation is not
spurred from any controversies at the
After undergoing a "personal
reevaluation," Felton said she was
leaving the assembly "with a heavy
"It is now time for me to be a
student. I only have six more months
of academic education for perhaps a
very long time. I want to concentrate
on being a student, on my classes,
and to be able to give academic
learning my full attention," she said
in a prepared statement.
She will make what she calls a
"clean break" from the assembly, and
will not remain active on any MSA
Felton noted the reorganization of
the assembly's office, including the
hiring of an office coordinator to
handle doughnut sales and movie
showings, as one of her lasting
"Things are really running well.
The office is running like clockwork.
It's a good time to leave," she said.

Preacher Mike and other' Diag evangelists, like
Brother Jim and Brother Jed, have been busy preaching,
yelling, and arguing with students from their stone
bench pulpits almost every day.
Some students stand and listen quietly. Many others
simply walk by and ignore the preachers. Still others
talk back, badgering the preachers and sometimes
jumping onto the bench themselves.
"Sir, you are the kind of person who would rape a
young girl if you had the opportunity," yelled one
preacher who wouldn't give his name, waving his cane,
at a student.
"You are all whores and whore mongers," Preacher
Mike Caulk said to a crowd of students another day.
"Most of you would be ashamed to tell your mother
how you live."
Caulk, who passes out fliers advertising his church
group, says he's preached on the Diag the past six
years for three reasons. "The first and most important
is to glorify God by talking about Jesus Christ. I want
to be an example that everybody should place Him
"In addition, I want to sow seeds for people to
consider Christianity and I want people to confront
their sin and act on it."
But is anybody really listening?
For many students, Diag preachers offer a few
laughs between classes. "The preachers add flavor to
Ann Arbor. It's kind of a carnival type thing, but I
think the University could just as easily have jugglers
or sweat sponges you throw at people," said LS A
senior Francine Berman, "They really don't have
anything to say."
Some- disagree; they think preachers like Mike does
have something to say. "I've watched Mike for six
years now, I think he is effective," said Tom Meloche,
a former student who is also a member of Caulk's
Cornerstone Church. "It (Diag preaching) shows other
Christians on campus that it's all right to be vocal
about what you believe in." Meloche said.
Caulk is pastor at the Ann Arbor church, which has
a 125-member congregation primarily made up of
current and former University students he recruited on
the Diag. He is paid a full salary set by a church
financial advisory committee. Caulk refused to reveal
his income, but said, "I make a good salary for a
family of four."
"Our people give as most churches do. Our people
give very generously," he said.
