Students win big prizes in game show

Editor's note: The Daily erred by
reprinting the preview of Thursday's
Campus Camera Game Show in
Friday's edition. The following news
story should have been printed and
The Daily apologizes for its
mistake.
by Ross Tanzer
What do you think of winning
free stereos, Walkmen, money, or T-
shirts? It beats studying on a Thurs-
day night, right?
*The winners of last night's Cam-
pus Camera Game Show - which
wasn't really televised - walked
away with these prizes, but even
those who didn't win couldn't help
but laugh about Ann Arbor's first
game show focusing on the town
and the University.
About 300 students came to the

Michigan Union Ballroom last night
to test their luck and knowledge of
the school's latest trends.
Six students were chosen for
three rounds to match answers to
questions that had been asked of var-
ious people on campus. The ques-
tions ranged from the most popular
band on campus to the best place to
get a cup of coffee. A championship
round for larger prizes was held at
the end of the evening.
Hosted by Howard Stevens, star
of Who's the Boss and Star Trek,
and Robin Marrella, star of Double
Dare, the show's sponsor - General
Foods International Coffees - tried
to attract college students to promote
its products.
General Foods has sponsored the
program at other schools, including

Purdue University last week and
Ohio State University earlier this
week. The company built an actual
stage to make the event appear tele-
vised.
"Michigan students are the
rowdiest fans so far," Stevens said
after the show, "but they also knew
when to listen." The show is sched-
uled to take place at eight campuses
this year, and, depending on the re-
sults, might continue to tour next
year.
LSA first-year student Loren At-
tkiss won an easy $20 and said, "It
was just a lot of fun."
Joe Fredal, an LSA first-year stu-
dent, said he came to hang out with
his friends and was never picked to
play the game. But he won an $800
stereo when his name was chosen
from an entry box. "I didn't expect

to win," he said. "I just came for the
hell of it."
LSA senior Kerry Birminghan
guessed correctly what videotaped
students would pick as their favorite
blow-off class - "Rocks for Jocks,"
or Geography 101. She wound up
winning $90, a Walkman, and a
stereo speaker system.
The University Activities Center
worked with General Foods to bring
the event to the University.
Caroline Greenberg, the center's
committee chair for special events,
said she was excited about the
turnout and audience response. "I'm
glad everybody had a good time," she
said. "People were even standing in
the audience."
General Foods sponsored the
show as a campaign strategy to mar-
ket its Double Dutch-flavored coffee.

FORUM
Continued from Page 1
The conference, which was the
first of its kind, was co-sponsored by
the University Affirmative Action
Office and the Office of Minority Af-
fairs.
John Matlock, director of the Of-
fice of Minority Affairs, said stu-
dents, administration, and staff must
work together for equality. "We're
all in the same boat," he said. "If the
boat is leaking in the front, you
can't say 'I'm sitting in the back.
It's not my problem.' We have to

stand up... We have to serve as role
models, too."
Chemistry Prof. Billy Evans, a
panel member at the workshop on
combatting racism, said he thought
the forum was necessary because it
encouraged men of color to discuss
and collectively address the issues
they face.
"The students have had to do far
too much," Evans said, pointing out
that students are often the most vo-
cal in struggles against discrimina-
tion and racism.
Myers said he is not sure if the
conference will become an annual
event.

DEFICIT

will be able to reinstate some of the
city positions that were recently
eliminated after the deficit has been
reversed.
As opposed to complaints from
the fire department, Police Chief
William Corbett said the police
force's emergency capability has not
suffered because of the cuts. Corbett
said the department has been allocat-
ing its resources differently to deal
with the vacant positions because
they are aware of the city's financial
difficulties.

"(City Council) does the best
they can," Corbett said. "They have
serious budget problems right now
and general safety has not been sacri-
ficed because of the cuts."
The budget deficit resulted from
the city's two- to three-year habit of
spending more than it was collect-
ing, Borgsdorf said. Other than elim-
inating the 32 city positions,
$300,000 was cut from the street
resurfacing budget and almost every
major capital purchase was deferred.
The city is presently being au-
dited and the results of the spending
cuts will be known within the next
few weeks.

IN BRIEF
Com piled from Associated Press and staff reports
Lebanese lawmakers elect
president, adopt peace plan
KLEIAT, Lebanon - Lebanese lawmakers yesterday elected a new
Christian president and approved a peace plan designed to end 14 years of
civil war, despite threats by a Christian general to punish them for
"conspiracy."
Parliament elected deputy Rene Mouawad, a 32-year veteran of Le-
banese politics and a 64-year-old Maronite Christian. Legislators first
stripped the president of some power, giving more authority to Moslem
leaders.
Lebanon has had no president since Sept. 22, 1988, when President
Amin Gemayel's six-year term expired with Parliament unable to decide
on a successor.
Christian leader Gen. Michel Aoun, whom Gemayel appointed to head
an interim Cabinet until a new president could be named, rejected
Mouawad's election.
Delays in savings and loan
bailout may cost $2 billion
WASHINGTON - The nation's largest savings and loan collapse
might cost taxpayers up to an additional $2 billion because of regulatory
delays allegedly sought by Michigan Sen. Donald Riegle and four col-
leagues, it was reported yesterday.
The failure of Lincoln Savings and Loan Association of Irvine, Calif.,
has triggered an investigation by the House Banking Committee. It also
has prompted a Senate Ethics Committee investigation of Riegle and
Sens. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.); John Glenn (D-Ohio); Dennis DeConcini
(D-Ariz.); and John McCain (R-Ariz.).
Charles Keating Jr., chairperson of Lincoln Savings' parent company,
and other Lincoln officials donated at least $307,000 to the five senators'
campaigns in early 1987.
Federal officials have said Lincoln's collapse cost taxpayers an addi-
tional $1 to $2 billion because of regulatory delays allegedly encouraged
by Keating's political maneuvers.
Greek elections divide gov't
ATHENS, Greece - The conservative New Democracy Party led in
national elections yesterday but narrowly missed a parliamentary majority,
throwing Greece into its second period of political uncertainty in five
months.
With 86.3 percent of the votes counted, New Democracy, led by Con-
stantine Mitsotakis, had 46.6 percent. It was followed by former Premier
Andreas Papandreou's Panhellenic Socialist Movement with 40.8 percent
and the Coalition of the Left and Progress with 10.6. The rest went to
small parties.
A tough period of bargaining was expected to begin shortly on form-
ing a new government. The leading parties are widely divided over such
major issues as economic policy and the presence of U.S. military bases
in Greece.
Iran's anti-U.S. protest fails
TEHRAN, Iran - Radicals' effort to turn the 10th anniversary of the
U.S. Embassy seizure into a show of strength backfired, indicating widen-
ing support for President Hashemi Rafsanjani.
The 10,000 to 15,000 who turned up for a rally outside the former
embassy Saturday is an insignificant number in Iran, where attendance at
such protests is usually counted in the hundreds of thousands.
The failure of the rally to develop into a massive anti-U.S. demonstra-
tion was all the more telling since it had been preceded by a week of radi-
cal exhortations for people to mark the anniversary "more splendidly than
ever."
Iranians had been urged to turn the event into "a day of hatred for world
arrogance led by the United States" to hail the Nov. 4, 1979 storming of
the embassy by militants.
Diplomats and other observers cautioned that the relatively poor
turnout should not be interpreted as a lessening of anti-American senti-
ment in Iran.
EXTRAS
New Daily editors to start Feb. 1
The Chief is dead. Long live the Chief!
Well, not quite yet.
The Daily's new Editor in Chief - along with the six other editors
elected last weekend - won't take power until next Feb. 1.

After four hours of debate Friday night, The Daily staff chose Admin-
istration Reporter Noah Finkel as next year's top editor. Then, News Edi-
tor David Schwartz won the controversial Opinion Editor post after an-
other four hours.
As if that weren't enough time to sit around a room grilling political
candidates, the Daily's News Staff came back yesterday morning to elect a
Managing Editor and four new News Editors.
Administration Reporter Kristine LaLonde seized the Managing Editor
spot, and she will work with News Editors-to-be Marion Davis and Vera
Songwe, the current minority issues reporters; Tara Gruzen, the city re-
porter; and Karen Akerlof, a general assignment reporter.
Meanwhile, keep reading the paper while the real editors are in con-
trol... - Steve Knopper
