Boilers shoot 70%, win 91-73

By Taylor Lincoln
Daily Basketball Writer
Prior to last night's game against
Purdue, it probably would have
pleased Michigan coach Steve Fisher
if you told him that little-used
players Chris Seter and Tony Tolbert
would record their first points in Big
Ten games.
However, if you told him that
Boilermaker center Steve Scheffler
would not miss a shot before he had
fifteen points, he might have
frowned.
And if you added that the
Boilermakers would shoot 70 percent
for the game, Fisher would have
gotten the idea that Purdue, and not
Michigan, would celebrate an easy

victory.
But that's how it went.
Former Detroit Southwestern
forward Loren Clyburn danced in the
center court circle of Crisler Arena in
the closing seconds of Purdue's 91-
73 win. He held his index finger in
the air, saying 'were No. 1.'
"When the coaches see that on
the film he should get his finger cut
off," Sheffler said afterwards. But for
Clyburn, who twice lost high school
state championship games at Crisler,
this was a time for celebration.
The Boilermakers, who surprised
everyone by winning their first
seven games, had put any remaining
doubts to rest.
"We got a good whipping from a

very good basketball team," Fisher
said." They were running off the
floor saying 'we're for real' and they
are."
Not only are they for real, they
are on the verge of running away
with the conference title, currently
leading the league by two and a half
games.
Aside from a brief stretch in the
second half, the Boilermakers
dominated the entire game. They
shot 70 percent from the field in the
first half, a statistic that was
exceeded only by their 80 percent
shooting from three point range and
their 100 percent shooting from the
foul line.

reductions
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - President Bush,
propelled by the political upheaval in Eastern Europe
and the Soviet Union, proposed a dramatic cut in U.S.
and Soviet combat troops yesterday, saying in his first
State of the Union address "the time is right to move
forward."
With ambassadors from across the world in atten-
dance, Bush told a joint session of Congress, "We are in
a period of great transition, great hope, yet great uncer-
tainty..."
"The events of the year just ended - the revolution
of '89 - have been a chain reaction, change so striking
that it marks the beginning of a new era in the world's
affairs."
Bush also announced plans to withdraw all of the
nearly 13,000 troops sent to Panama in an invasion to
oust Gen. Manual Antonio Noriega "well before the end
of February."
Hours before he delivered his address to Congress and
a national television audience, Bush telephoned Soviet
President Mikhail Gorbachev yesterday to advise him of
his proposal to cut U.S. and Soviet forces in Central
Europe to 195,000 on each side.
"We recognize that the Soviet military threat in Eu-
rope is diminishing but we see little change in Soviet
strategic modernization....But the time is right to move
forward on a conventional arms-control agreement to
move us to more appropriate levels of military forces in
Europe," he said.
His troop offer was the surprise centerpiece of a
speech in which Bush also proposed lofty goals for
American schools and prodded lawmakers to approve his
plans for a capital gains tax cut and bills dealing with
clean air, child care, crime, drugs, education and other
issues. See BUSH, Page 2

Graduate school
dean may receive
vice provost title
by Noelle Vance
Daily Administration Reporter

A University student was
sexually assaulted by a man with a
knife in her residence hall early
yesterday morning, Ann Arbor
police said. Police reports also said
the student believes her assailant was
the same man who attacked her as
she was walking to her car last
Wednesday night.
The woman, a resident of one of
the Hill dorms, was in one of her
dorm's restrooms at 3:12 a.m. when
a man wearing a ski mask and a dark
turtleneck burst into the room
brandishing a "razor-tight utility
knife," police said.
Calling her by name, the man
allegedly demanded the student
perform a sexual act. Ann Arbor
Police Sgt. Sherry Vail said the
student, after biting her assailant on
the arm, was able to get to her room
and call campus security, which
subsequently contacted the Ann
Arbor police.
During another attack last
Wednesday, the woman told police, a
man - who also had a knife, she

Another University administrator
may receive a new title as part of
University President James Duder-
stadt's plan to restructure the admin-
istration.
John D'Arms, dean of the Rack-
ham graduate school and a history
professor, may be named Vice
Provost for Graduate School Studies,
said Provost and Vice President for
Academic Affairs Charles Vest yes-
terday.
The decision to upgrade D'Arms'
title has not been officially made,
Vest said. Before D'Arms can be-
come a vice provost, Vest must
submit a proposal for approval to
the University's Board of Regents.
"The main objective is to bring
the dean of the graduate school and
the provost and the main research of-
ficer into an even closer working re-
lationship," D'Arms said.
As provost, D'Arms would re-
main dean of Rackham and have the
same responsibilities he has now,
but he would have "a broader role in
the administration," Vest said.
The exact details of this role have
not been worked out, D'Arms said.
But the general difference between a
dean and a vice provost, is the dean

only works within one school, while
a vice provost's duties embrace all of
the schools and colleges.
As dean of Rackham, D'Arms
said he already works with every
school and college because graduate
students study in all areas.
The upgrading of the title would
be another step towards making the
graduate school and the office of re-
search into parallel offices, Vest
said.
Last October, Duderstadt an-
nounced at*his state of the Univer-
sity address the administration would
institute several structural changes.
Among these, the Vice President for
Research would become a Vice
Provost, and along with the Vice
President for Student services, would
report to the Provost.
The effect of the changes is to
better link research and education,
Vest said.
Recently, a new administrative
post - vice president for commu-
nity relations - was established to
betterlink the community with the
University.

A new publication for Ann Arbor
and Ypsilanti's lesbian and gay male
communities - the first of its kind
in the area in 10 years - released its
first edition in January.
The name of the news-monthly,
"Ten Percent," is meant to reflect

and lesbians, inform homosexuals
about events in the community and
increase involvement, publicize and
keep a record of acts of discrimina-
tion, assault and attacks on lesbians
and gay males, said Culver.
Jim Toy, co-director of the'
University's Lesbian and Gay Male

Some have criticized the first
issue because of a lack of input from
the lesbian community. Toy said, "It
is only one voice from the gay
men's community. It would be nice
if other voices could be heard."
But Culver said the newsletter
will try to give equal voice to
women and minorities as well as

WCBN members have confirmed.
"10 Percent" alleges that the radio
station tried to avoid the negative
publicity the story would create by
not reporting the incident to the
affirmative action office of the
University.
However, Brad Heavner, WCBN's
general manager, disagrees. He said
