People affiliated with Notre Dame football have been
so excited for the past few weeks that you'd think the
pope was visiting soon.
The reasons for this are simple: Notre Dame is
looking to have its first winning season since 1984.
Senior flanker Tim Brown has a good chance to become
the school's seventh Heisman Trophy winner. Lou Holtz
is firmly in place as head coach. Gerry Faust is two years
removed from the football team. And most importantly,
the Fighting Irish play Michigan at Ann Arbor
tomorrow with a chance to avenge last season's 24-23
loss. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.
sWe've played them twice and they've beaten us
twice," Brown said. "It would be great to win one up
there in front of 105,000."
"They're getting excited about it," Holtz said. "We're
playing Michigan. We're not just playing anybody. I
know we're going to be playing one of the five best
teams in the country.
"IT'S GOING to be a hard-hitting, physical
football game," he added. "This will be an old-fashioned
football game where they just go out there and get after
one another for 60 minutes."
A review of the events that led to Notre Dame's loss
in last year's game makes it easy to see why Holtz and
his team are anxious to get started.
Six crucial Notre Dame miscues - two fumbles
inside the Michigan 20-yard line, an interception in the
Wolverine endzone, a missed extra point, an uncovered Tough
kickoff, and an errant last-second field goal - paved the LSA Senior C

University administration mem-
bers, faculty members, and student
services directors welcomed first-year
minority students to the University
last night in a ceremony. They
stressed "performance, accountabili-
ty, and resources" as key ingredients
to a successful education.
An estimated 400 first-year, grad-
uate, and transfer minority students
gathered in the Michigan League
Ballroom to hear speakers such as
minority student service representa-
tive Michael Dashner, Vice President
for Academic Affairs and Provost
James Duderstadt, Vice Provost for
Minority Affairs Charles Moody,
and Regent Philip Power (D-Ann
Speaking on behalf of the Uni-
versity's Board of Regents, Power
said that the University was obligat-
ed to help the students perform well
academically and socially. "The
University is organized to provide
you with the resources to perform to
the maximum of your potential,"
Ph.D. candidate Roderick Linzie,
a counselor for the Comprehensive
Studies Program - a tutoring pro-
gram for minority students -- led
the ceremonies. Linzie said he was
pleased with Power's speech. "I saw
it as being a sign of the commit-
ment on the board to changing the
institution to being more committed
to equity," Linzie said.
Duderstadt, representing the ad-
ministration, advised the students
that an education at the University is
not a "passive process."
"It's not going to be presented to
you on a silver platter; you've got to
want to go out and get it," he added.
Duderstadt also advised students
to consider computer-age jobs since
he believes the United States is
changing from an industrial society
to one based on information.
"I believe it has become a
national imperative to encourage
more of you to enter into knowl-
edge-based professions," Duderstadt
Vice President for Student Ser-
vices Henry Johnson echoed Duder-
stadt's sentiments by telling the

New York Mayor Edward Koch
will kick off a two-day University
forum on Jews in politics with a
speech addressing the complexities
of ethnic politics in urban America.
Koch will keynote the forum,
"The Quest for Utopia: Jews in the
Political World" Sunday night in the
Power Center at 7:30 p.m.
A day-long symposium Monday
will examine Jewish political
activity and ideas from the Biblical
age to the present day. Participants
will include University professors as
well as Israeli experts.
History Prof. Todd Endelman, di-
rector of the Program for Judaic
Studies said Koch was selected
.keynote speaker because "he's prob-
ably the most prominent mayor in
the United States and certainly one
of the most visible Jewish politi-
A colloquium on Jews in Ameri-
can politics featuring political con-*
sultant David Garth will conclude
the conference Monday night. Ac-
cording to Endelman, Garth is
"probably the most well known po-
litical advisor in the country."
Sponsored by the Program in Ju-
daic Studies, the conference is the
third in the Shanik-Fleischer Forum
Series that brought Jewish musician
Theodore Bikel and Israeli diplomat
Abba Eban to the University last
year. Both addressed packed houses
as Koch is expected to.
Endelman hopes the symposium
on Monday as well as Koch's speech
will attract a large and diverse audi-
ence. "The whole point of the con-
ference is to try to go beyond the
University faculty and present it to a
larger audience," he said.
Koch's speech was originally to
be held in the Rackham Lecture
Hall, but was moved to the Power
Center due to maintenance problems
at Rackham. The speech will be fol-
lowed by a question and answer ses-

A campus gay rights group plans
to boycott the Pantree restaurant to-
morrow because they say its man-
agement did not stop five men from
harassing a group of gay men and
lesbian customers last month.
Picket organizer Carol Wayman
of Lesbian and Gay Rights on Cam-
pus (LaGROC) anticipates more
than 50 people will protest the inci-
dent and raise awareness about other
incidents of homosexual harassment
in Ann Arbor.
One of the victims at the Pantree,
who would identify himself only as
Mark, said, "We were all finished
eating when one guy threw up on
the table and another guy came up
right after and spit food at us, and
then picked up the chewed food and
threw it at us.
"The managers didn't handle the
situation well," he added. "It was a
big joke to them. They thought it
was really funny. They could have
called the police."
Pantree manager Paul Hardkins,
who was on duty at the time of the
incident, said he tried to hurry the
men out of the restaurant, but be-
cause of his "diminutive size" he
was unable to stop the men from
vomiting and spitting.
Hardkins said he did not call the
police "because by the time the po-
ice would have arrived the men
would have been long gone."
Hardkins also said the harassers
were drunk, but that they are regular
customers, friends of staff members,
and have never caused problems be-
Jim Toy, a staff member from
LaGROC in favor of the picket, said
that it doesn't matter that some vic-
tims feel enough has been done.
"The incident not only affects the
people at the table, but the commu-
nity as a whole. Discrimination and
harassment are outrageous. The
community needs to be aware of the
kinds of incidents that affect gay
men and lesbians."
Mark said he is not in favor of
the boycott because he feels the
restaurant has tried to make amends.
