NEW YORK (AP)- Temperatures
fell below zero across the Plains and
Midwest and wind gusting to 30 mph
made it feel as cold as 60 below zero
in places yesterday, forcing the
homeless to seek shelter and driving
demand for heat and electricity to
record levels.
"Some areas in the East Coast are
saying this is going to be the coldest
since '78. It's the coldest I've seen it
in the last three years," said Dan

McCarthy, a meteorologist with the
National Weather Service's Severe
Storms Center in Kansas City, Mo.
Since Saturday, at least five deaths
were blamed on the weather.
The cold air was being pumpedl
southward by the clockwise circula-

a challenge. Last Dec. 10 the 19-year
Michigan head football coach said he
was eager to meet Alabama in the
Hall of Fame Bowl because, like
Michigan, Alabama is a traditional
football power.
The coach, however, ran into
another challenge less than a week
later, when it was discovered during a
routine test at St. Joseph Mercy
Hospital that Schembechler would
need quadruple heart-by-pass surgery
for the second time.
Schembechler underwent a seven-
hour operation on Dec. 15 at St.
Joseph Mercy. Dr. Otto Gago, head
of the team that performed the
surgery, said Schembechler would
likely suffer a major heart attack
without the surgery.
The coach was released from the
hospital shortly before Christmas
Day, but was not allowed to make
the trip to Tampa, site of the 1988
Hall of Fame Bowl, with the football

During the team's stay in Tampa
the coach was in daily contact with
acting head coach and offensive
coordinator Gary Moeller.
Schembechler was also interviewed
by NBC's Bob Costas at halftime of
the Hall of Fame Bowl.
"This is no way to coach
football," Schembechler told Costas.
"I don't ever want to do it again."
The coach also said he will start
recruiting next week, but says he
will have to stay in Ann Arbor while
his assistants do the travelling.
"As long as they know I'm going
to be back to coach I don't think it
will hurt recruiting," Schembechler
In 1969 Schembechler suffered a
heart attack on New Year's eve and
was unable to coach in the 1970
Michigan-USC Rose Bowl.
In May 1976 Schembechler
underwent his first quardruple-by-pass
operation. The operation was also
performed by Dr. Gago.

The trial of Thomas Rosenboom,

Assaulting an LSA senior, has been
postponed until February.
Originally scheduled for Dec. 21,
the judge's office postponed the trial
because of the holidays. Leslie
Seeligson, Rosenboom's attorney,
said the postponement was not due
to the actions of either the defendant
or the plaintiff.
, Rosenboom has been accused of

Allen, a specialist in molecular

Steiner, who announced Allen's
appointment last month, said, "I am
delighted to have persuaded such an

Search for athletic
director continues
The illness of University football
coach Bo Schembechler has delayed
the announcement of who will
succeed Athletic Director Don
Canham, who is retiring in July.
Sources report that Schembechler
was to be named athletic director in
addition to retaining his job as head
football coach.
Former University President
Harold Shapiro. had wanted to
announce the appointment of a new
athletic director before he departed for
Princeton University on January 1.
Reportedly, Schembechler re-
mains the top choice for the job.
The other final candidates are
thought to be former Ohio State
athletic director Rick Bay and
Arizona State athletic director
Charles Harris.
North Carolina Athletic Director
John Swofford, reportedly a finalist
to succeed Canham, took himself
out of the running by telling
University officials he has no
intention of taking the job. He asked
that his name be taken out of
consideration as he wants t o
continue at North Carolina.
It remains unclear when a new

Honorary degrees

The University's Board of Regents
awarded honorary degrees to dancer
Gene Kelly, former University
President Harold Shapiro, and
biochemist-Earl Stadtman at winter
graduation ceremonies on Dec. 20.
Kelly received an honorary Doctor
of Fine Arts degree. Since starring in
his first film in 1942, the dancer has
made over forty motion pictures.
Kelly is probably best known for his
roles as director, star, and
choreographer ofSingin' in the Rain.
In addition to many other honors,
Kelly holds the first "Oscar" given
for movie choreography.
Stadtman, a professor at the
National Institutes of Health, was
lauded by the regents as a pioneer in
the study of the cell and enzyme

activity and was given an honorary
Doctor of Science Degree. Stadtman
is also a member of the National
Academy of Sciences.

Shapiro compared his departure for
Princeton University, where he
assumed the presidency on Jan. 1, to
"moving on" of the graduates.
"Vivian and I share with the
graduates today the pangs of saying
farewell to a world that is a
challenging, but a familiar and
gratifying one," he said.
"We also share, however, the
exhilaration and apprehension of
entering a new arena filled with new
issues and new people."

Although the Ann Arbor
Citizens for Fair Rent (AACFR)
garnered enough signatures last year
to put a rent control proposal on the
city ballot for the April elections, a
bill pending in the Michigan House
of Representatives may nullify their
The bill, which would forbid
local governments from limiting
property owners' control over rent
levels, is now being considered by
the House subcommittee on Towns
and Counties. Committee members+
were unavailable for comment. The{
bill is expected to come before the
entire House by early February.

Rent control proposalfaces opposition

If it passes the house and is
signed by Gov. James Blanchard, it
would render meaningless the
proposal for rent control by the Ann
Arbor group.
Ann Arbor City Council-
members are split in their reaction to
the bill, but the democratic caucus is
drafting a resolution to oppose the
state legislature's "unwarranted in-
tervention into local government
affairs;"' said Dave DeVarti (D-
Fourth Ward). He acknowledged the
possibility that the legislators could
disregard the resolution.
Councilmember Jeff Epton (D-
Third Ward) expects the draft to be
finalized and sent to Lloyd Weeks,
chair of the Towns and Counties
subcommittee, within the next
couple of days.,
Unanimous city council suport
for the resolution is unlikely. Re-
publican Mayor Gerald Jernigan said
the party caucus is considering the
resolution, but "it's receiving very
little suport" because rent control
would be "harmful to the stock of
city housing."
The AACFR proposal would
limit rent increases to 75 percent of
the inflation rate and would create a
Rent Stabilization Board, with
members appointed by city council,
to review all proposed rent increases.
The group has collected about 5,400
signatures to put the proposal on the
ballot, although it only needed
