U-M, OSU out for blood
as battle begins today

by Karen Akerlof
Daily Staff Writer
Bumps and bruises from the Michigan-Ohio State
University rivalry won't be a problem until the Nov. 25
football game, but the blood will start flowing today.
Michigan and OSU today begin their annual battle to
collect blood for the American Red Cross. The Big Ten
rivals are competing to see which school can collect a
larger percentage of the blood needed by their regional
During the next two weeks, members of the
University's Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity and the
Red Cross will encourage students to provide blood for
the 70 hospitals in southeastern Michigan.
The Michigan campaign is one of the largest blood
drives organized by the southeastern Michigan Red
Cross during the year. Neal Fry, the regional Red Cross
representative, said about 10 percent of the blood needed
in this area is raised in the two-week drive.
The Red Cross decided seven years ago to use the
Michigan-OSU football game as a rallying call for a
blood drive. Though Ohio State boasts more than
50,000 students compared to Michigan's 35,000,
Michigan has won the battle five times.
Fry attributed Michigan's success to the superior
quality of Michigan's students. "We think the
University of Michigan students are a lot slicker, a lot
brighter," she said.
The goal of the Blood Battle is to collect 7,000 pints
of blood, said Alpha Phi Omega drive co-chair Debi
Corti, but she said all of this won't come from
University collection sites. Other regional collection
sites will allow donors to add their pints to Michigan's
count, and earlier Reserve Officer Training Corps and
faculty drives will also be included in the final tally.
Corti said this time of year was traditionally one of
blood shortages. In addition, the southeastern Michigan
Red Cross has been sending blood to Northern
California to aid earthquake victims, creating an even

greater need for blood donors.
Michigan students are typically enthusiastic about
the drive, said Corti, but this year Michigan will have
to try even harder to win. "OSU really wants to win,"
she said. "They have been going all out to win the
trophy back. We have to be even better."
The University will be the largest blood collection
site in southeastern Michigan. Fry said anyone who
weighs more than 110 pounds, is between the ages of
17 and 66, and is in reasonably good health can donate
blood. The process takes about an hour, and the donated
blood will be regenerated by the body in about 48

The parent invasion is over.
The first annual Student Alumni
Council-sponsored Parents' Weekend
concluded its three-day stint Sunday.
More than 4,000 parents, students
0 and siblings participated in the
weekend's activities.
The planners of Parents' Weekend
deemed it successful.
"It was unbelievable," said
Alyssa Altman, an LSA senior and
co-Project Director of Parents'
Weekend. "We haven't heard a nega-
tive thing yet." She said she hoped
the weekend would start a University
Saturday's pre-game tailgate

party and pep rally highlighted the
weekend's activities, said LSA se-
nior Beth Straub, the other project
University President James Dud-
erstadt made a surprise appearance at
the tailgate.
In his 10-minute speech, Duder-
stadt referred to the "Michigan Fam-
ily" and introduced his wife, Anne,
as the "Michigan Mom." More than
3,000 people attended the party, held
in the Track and Tennis Building.
The pep rally also included in-
structions for singing "Hail to.the
Victors" and using the Maize and
Blue pom-poms that were handed out
to everyone who attended.
Parents cited many reasons for at-




What's happening in Ann Arbor today

tending the weekend activities.
Milton Siegel, father of LSA
first-year student Robert Siegel, said,
"I come from an Ivy League school,
but I prefer to think of myself as
Michigan. This was just an excuse
for me to come."
Parsla Mason, the mother of
LSA senior Christopher Mason,
said, "I don't think we've ever
missed anything at any of our chil-
dren's colleges."
Other events included open
houses hosted by the University's
undergraduate schools and a Sunday
morning brunch.
LSA Dean Edie Goldenberg
spoke to about 300 people at the
LSA open house, held in the Union
Goldenberg described Parents'
Weekend as a "two-way street."
"We need to hear what the parents
think we are doing right and wrong,
and we need to tell the parents about
the goals we are trying to achieve,"
Goldenberg said. She discussed the
importance of a liberal arts education
and the wealth of opportunities
available to University students.
The brunch was originally sched-
uled to be held in the Michigan
League, but was expanded to both
the Union and the League to ac-
commodate the larger-than-expected
parental participation.
Despite the weekend's successes,
the organizers plan some changes for
next year. "We need to change regis-
tration next time," Straub said.
"There were some problems because
we did not have our registration
packets pre-packaged."
