The Michigan Student Assembly
passed a unanimous resolution Tues-
day stating MSA would no longer
recognize Michigamua - an all-male
self-proclaimed honor sociey -- as a
"To me it's not a leadership or-
ganization. It's an elitist society,"
said MSA President Mike Phillips,
an LSA senior.
Last April, Phillips said he was
asked to become a member of
Michigamua, but he refused.
"I just told them it wasn't my
style," Phillips said.
Phillips said MSA passed the
resolution because of Michigamua's
offensive actions toward Native
Americans, and also because the
group has been accused of being anti-
semetic and elitist.
MSA recognition, which is denied
to groups that discriminate, enables
student groups to get student funding
through the assembly.
MSA's Minority Affairs Comn-
mittee Chair Delro Harris, an LSA
junior said Michigamua would not be
recognized unless they met with the
Harris said he, along with two
friends, witnessed members of Mich-
igamua "imitating Indians" in public
last spring. He said they were
pounding on drums with painted
faces and "whooping."
Harris said he plans to discuss
with Michigamua members the pos-
sible infraction of the Michigan
Civil Rights Commision's ruling of
"If these new members have never
been told about this (the civil rights
ruling)," Harris said, "...that's a
Harris added their "secret society"
self-classification is also problem-
"For (Michigamua) to be a secret
society and want to be a part of the
University community is a contra-
diction in terms," Harris said.
Associate Athletics Director Don
Lund a member of Michigamua's
"Old Braves Council" said he was not
aware whether anyone from the
advisory committee had told current
members about the civil rights

Each year College Bowls are held at various univer-
sities around the country. The University's College
Bowl is run by the University Activities Center (UAC)
and is organized by student co-chairs Lee-May Chen
and Anne Schneider, making it the only student-run
College Bowl in the country.
The top teams of the competition are promoted to
the all-star team, which consists of 12 players. This
team goes to various tournaments around the country,
culminating with the regional tournament at Akron
University in Ohio this February.
There are four players on a regular College Bowl
team plus one alternate, but no more than two graduate
students are allowed per team. Last year 43 teams
signed up for the initial competition, and UAC is hop-
ing for an even bigger turnout this year. The competi-
tion starts with a "seeding" quiz this Tuesday.

throughout the rally yesterday.
Protesters condemned both the
Cornerstone Church and the Univer-
"(Christians say) 'don't bear false
witness.' Then they say, 'I love you,
but I hate what you do in bed."' said
Jim Toy, the coordinator of gay male
progams at the University. "If that
isn't bearing false witness, I don't
know what is." Toy told the group
that he wore a helmet because he said
he was "afraid of being clobbered
over the head with a cross."
The protesters said they believe
the University is not doing enough
to combat discrimination. They
called on the University community
to take action.
"Take the risk to make a com-
plaint," said Billy Edwards,
coordinator of lesbian programs at
the University. "If we wait for (the
administration) to make our envi-
ronment condusive to gay men and
lesbians, we will wait to hell freezes
Cornerstone Church's actions
were a "low blow to MSA and a low
blow to freedom of speech," said
MSA President Mike Phillips, in a
speech at the rally. "We will not let
(the Church) hide behind language
and pretend it is a censorship issue.
That will not be the status quo, not
by MSA, not by the University."
Caulk denied "God Hates Queer"
was discriminatory. He did say,
however, that it wag offensive, and
said he had apologized openly.

University doctors say a new
technique that shaves away choles-
terol buildup from clogged coronary
arteries may soon revolutionize cur-
rent treatment possibilities for heart
The procedure, known as
atherectomy, was performed Tuesday
on two patients at the University
Medical Center. Both patients were
released yesterday and are in good
condition, according to hospital offi-
"The atherectomy catheter is one
of the most exciting advances in the
last decade in the area of coronary
artery disease," said Dr. Eric Topol,
director of the Medical Center Cardiac
Catheterization Laboratory. "It is
different than other methods of im-
proving clogged arteries because it
actually removes plaque from the
artery," he added.
Heart patients with clogged
arteries have been typically offered
two treatment optionsin order to re-
store blood flow. The more serious
and risky of the two is an arterial
bypass, which is usually a last resort
in patients with advanced coronary
artery disease. The other less invasive
method is angioplasty, a technique
that uses a balloon-tipped catheter to
compact plaque against the walls of
the artery thereby improving blood
According to Medical Center of-
ficials, angioplasty is used on
200,000 patients each year in the
United States and is effective on
most people. But more than 25 per-
cent of patients experience recurring
blockages and require further treat-
ment. Doctors now feel encouraged
that atherectomies may soon replace
angioplasties as a more effective and
longer lasting technique.
"It's a whole new method of
dealing with the terrible problem of
plaque buildup that balloon angio-
plasty has only partially addressed,"
said Topol, who performed the
procedures Tuesday morning.
Gwynn McPeek, 72, a former
professor of music at the University,
was one of two patients to undergo
the procedure at the Medical Center.
McPeek appeared exceptionally
strong and optimistic just hours after
the procedure. "I expect to start regu-
