Pep rally to psych up
fans and help charity

BY JEFF KLEE
With the invasion of the number-one ranked
University of Miami football team just one day away,
many Wolverine diehards will gather tonight at a pep
rally that will also raise funds for an Ann Arbor char-
ity.
Funds raised for the ninth annual "Run for the
Roses" pep rally, sponsored by the Alpha Delta Phi
fraternity, will be given to the Ronald McDonald
House of Ann Arbor, an organization that provides
low-cost housing for families with young children who
are being treated at the University Hospital.
Neither last year's disappointing 8-4 football sea-
son, nor last week's heartbreaking loss to Notre Dame
are expected to affect the traditionally strong turnout at
this event.
"We're expecting about 300 or 400 people," said
LSA senior Brad Brown, special events director at Al-
pha Delta Phi.
Brown said Ann Arbor officials, in anticipation of
the crowd, will close State Street between Madison and

South University during the rally to provide standing
room for those who cannot fit on the fraternity
grounds.
Highlighting the event will be a special awards pre-
sentation honoring former Michigan Athletic Director
Donald Canham. Canham, who served as athletic
director for 20 years before retiring last June, will re-
ceive a plaque presented by the Greek system recogniz-
ing his many accomplishments for Michigan athletics.
"I was very surprised," said Canham who will attend
the rally. "I appreciate it very much."
Also scheduled to appear are football coach Bo
Schembechler, the Michigan Cheerleaders, the Michi-
gan Marching Band, and, if past traditions continue,
some of the team's star players.
Revenue for the Ronald McDonald House will be
raised by selling advertising spots on a banner that will
hang above the stage. Brown expects to present the or-
ganization with a check for close to $750, considerably
higher than the $450 that was raised last year.
The pep rally will get underway at 7:00 tonight at
the Alpha Delta Phi house, 556 South State.

JESSICA GREENE/Dily
Paul Moffitt, president of the College Democrats, urges students to get involved in the fall
campaigns. "The challenge of today is to get Democrats elected," he said.
'Democrats assail foes, urge
student participation

BY MICHAEL LUSTIG
State Attorney General Frank
Kelley, head of Massachusetts Gov.
'Michael Dukakis's Michigan
presidential campaign, urged students
to get involved with the fall
campaigns, invoking John F.
Kennedy's famous quote: "Ask not
rwhat your country can do for you
but what you can do for your
country."
The message at last night's
meeting of the College Democrats
was "get involved." Candidates and
iparty activists implored about 150
'students to join campaigns with
I their time, money, and efforts while
they assailed Republicans George
Bush, Dan Quayle, and Carl Pursell.
State Sen. Lana Pollack, running
'against Pursell, a six-term U.S.
representative from Plymouth, used
'environmental issues as her
ammunition. She noted an
environmental group recently labeled
Pursell one of the most anti-
environment members of Congress,
and ridiculed Bush's recent visit to
the shores of Lake Erie where he said
he was an environmentalist.
SHE ALSO criticized Pursell
t for leading a fight in Congress to cut
$6 billion from the Clean Water Act
in 1985. The bill, which would have
j frozen funds for environmental
,cleanup efforts, failed to pass
*Congress.
*Kelley launched a second round
of environmental criticism on Bush,
saying his office has collected more
fines for environmental pollution

than the federal Environmental
Protection Agency has.
Speakers fired another barrage of
attacks on Bush using women's
issues. Kelle.y said Bush told women
at the Republican National
Convention last month, "You're
gaining economic power, and I
won't take that away." But Kelley
noted that women on the average
earn 64 cents to every dollar that
men earn. He reminded voters that
many important positions in
Dukakis's campaign are held by
women, including those of campaign
manager and foreign policy advisor.
Jennifer Granholm, a Dukakis
campaign organizer from the state
Democratic party, said the premise
that women would vote for Quayle,
whom she referred to as "Bush
Light," is "a little insulting to
women."
SHE THEN told a story of
meeting a couple in Hamtramck,
where Quayle recently visited. The
husband was wearing a Bush-Quayle

button, and chided the wife when she
took a Dukakis button from
Granholm, saying that Quayle was
cute. "I'd sleep with him," the wife
said, "but I won't vote for him."
Scott Sheets, a Michigan State
senior and campus coordinator for
U.S. Sen. Donald Riegle's
campaign, said the problem facing
Riegle is his lead in the polls, which
show him a 3-1 favorite over his
opponent, Jim Dunn. "People don't
think we have much of a race," he
said.
State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann
Arbor), seeking a tenth term,
borrowed Rev. Jesse Jackson's line,
"Keep hope alive" in urging students_
to join the campaigns.
The College Democrats and the
individual candidates' campaigns will
be leafleting, telephoning, and
helping to register voters throughout
the fall. The deadline to register to
vote is Oct. 10.
