Focused Wolverines set to X-out Xavier
BY ADAM SCHRAGER
With all of the hullaballoo surrounding Mich-
igan's coaching situation, it is difficult to re-
member that a game against Xavier (12:07 p.m.,
Ch. 2) is going to be played today in Atlanta.
While the Musketeers may not seem
overwhelming on paper and to the fans, they
have Michigan's coaching staff worried.
"You know we still have a game to play,"
said Steve Fisher, who will coach the team
against the Midwestern City Conference tourn-
ament champions instead of new Arizona State
coach Bill Frieder. "They're a good team that has
a lot of weapons. Plus, they're quicker than us,
which doesn't seem to be a rarity these days."
The Xavier guards are the ones that worry Fisher
the most. Senior Stan Kimbrough leads the team
in scoring with a 19-point average after leading
the team in assists last year when Xavier could
rely on the NCAA's 11th all-time leading scorer
Byron Larkin for scoring. Kimbrough shares the
guard spot with Michael Davenport, who, while
not averaging that many points on the season,
has recorded successive career-highs in the last
"Davenport is playing really well right now,"
Fisher said. "He's peaking now, which is the
way you want it going into the tournament."
On the front line, Xavier is not as small as
Michigan had first perceived. At 6-foot-9 and 6-
foot-10 respectively, Tyrone Hill and Derek
Strong matchup well with the Wolverines. Hill,
the Most Valuable Player of the MCC
Tournament and a first-team MCC performer,
averaged 18.9 points and 12.4 rebounds a game.
Despite the worry that Xavier poses to the
Wolverines, Musketeer coach Pete Gillen is

Sid Freidman talks to student
BY TARA GRUZEN
North Campus students need a
governing body separate from the
rest of the University, says LSA
sophomore Charles Dudley, who is
working to establish a North Cam-
pus Assembly (NCA).
Although Dudley organized a
meeting last night to start plans for
the assembly, only two people at-
Although every student and fac-
ulty group on North Campus was
invited to the meeting, Conservative
Coalition presidential and vice
presidential candidates Aaron
Williams and Rose Karadsheh were
the only ones who came. -
"I hope this is not a reflection of
how North Campus people feel
about each other," Dudley said.
"You know we came out here to
try to support you," said Williams.
Williams explained that although
he does think that an assembly on
North Campus will separate that part
of the campus from the rest of the
university, he still thinks it is a
"I can't let North Campus go un-
touched any longer," he said.
But Dudley does not feel that the
assembly, which would be composed
of both students and faculty or staff
members, would alienate North
Campus. Rather, he said the inter-
ests of students there would be better
"I don't think MSA represents a
broad enough constituency of North
Campus," Dudley said. "This is not
a reflection on (MSA president)
Mike Phillips, but on the assembly
as a whole."
NCA would be led by an assem-
bly speaker, who would act as a
president. This speaker would serve
over a cabinet made up of four stu-
dents and two faculty or staff mem-
bers. This cabinet would steer the
The people who would do the
most of the work would be the stu-
dents on the assembly, Dudley said.
"The students would get more out of
it and would put more into it."
Dudley said the problem of fund-
ing is one of the most difficult that
the new assembly would face. Pos-
sible ways of getting money would
be from the North Campus groups
represented by the body, the univer-
sity reserve fund, or MSA.
Although he said going to MSA
for money might make NCA rela-
tively dependent on the main student
government, Dudley said that he
does not think it would be possible
to get money from the University's
Board of Regents, as does MSA.
He said the regents would tell
NCA to work alongside MSA.
However, Dudley said that would be
the ideal situation anyway.

Just as Zeus aimed to fulfill his
duty of carrying out the will of Des-
tiny, so too will Greeks on campus
aim to raise $40,000 for charity in
the upcoming week.
"Zeus on the Loose - Reaching
for Olympus" is the theme of this
year's Greek Week. Though events
officially begin today, fraternity
and sorority members worked on the
Ann Arbor Shelter Association's
Women in Transition House last
Saturday. The shelter houses home-
less women for minimal rent while
they look for permanent homes.
To raise money for philan-
thropies, fraternity and sorority
houses team up and compete in a
week-long series of events, which
range from riding a tricycle to
jumping into 500 gallons of blue
In addition to a Red Cross Blood
Drive and charities chosen by indi-
vidual sororities and fraternities, this
year's three main philanthropies are:
-Literacy Volunteers of America,
which aims to increase literacy;
-The Wilmot House, which pro-
vides a home for radiation therapy
patients and their families in a joint
effort with The University of
Michigan Medical Center and the
American Cancer Society, and;
-Prospect Place, a shelter for
homeless children and their families.
"Our goal is $40,000, but we
don't nit pick on nickles and dimes,
said LSA senior Mark Weiss, the
Greek Week Committee chair. "The
whole week is fun and all for a
t. To promote unity within the
Greekosystem, fraternities and
sororities have been divided up ran-
domly into teams to compete in
events. Tickets, t-shirts, food, and
boxer shorts will also be sold to
raise money. Local proprietors are
also taking part in Greek Week by
In addition, money raised from
the variety show "Greek Sing and
Variety," sweatshirt sales and partic-
ipation fees will be divided among
the three charities.

A group of Nazis may be demon-
strating on the steps of the Ann Ar-
bor post office tomorrow and a
group of counter-protesters is gear-
ing for their arrival.
Judy Levy, a member of the Ann
Arbor Ad-hoc Committee to Oppose
the Nazis, said she hopes several
hundred counter-protesters will attend
Levy said the committee would
not disendorse physical confrontation
with the Nazis, and added that the
United Coalition Against Racism
and the Latin American Solidarity
Committee would not endorse the
demonstration because of the possi-
bility of violence. Members of
UCAR and LASC could not be
reached for comment.
"Nazis are a threat to your life,"
she said. "This is something you
can't be passive about."
Levy said that although the Nazis
have been demonstrating in Ann Ar-
bor for eight years, it is difficult to
find out'when they are coming.
"We don't know what particular
time (they're coming)," she said.

counter-protesters and the Nazis.
Four of the counter-demonstra-
tors, including one University stu-
dent, were arrested for disorderly
conduct and disturbing the police.
