As registration for the Daily's
centennial celebration began early
Friday morning, Daily alumni, rep-
resenting eight decades of the paper's
history, arrived from all corners of
the United States, greeting each
other with hugs and tears.
The centennial was "an exhilarat-
ng success" said Centennial Chair
Richard Campbell, "There was no
better combination than discussing
freedom of the press and socializing.
Several alumni said they have never
had such a good time in their lives."
Campbell pointed to the
"profound and moving experience" of
meeting old friends combined with
the creation of the Michigan Daily

The number of murders in Grand

into the Daily's open house in the
student publications building. Lloyd
Graff, 1966 sports editor, leafed
though the paper's library of bound
volumes of past Dailys reading his
old articles. He said said he was
amused over "how sophomoric they
were, but they still had energy. They
were unrefined but vibrant, and I
think that's also the way the Daily
itself has always been."

"It will be almost impossible to
go back to the real world after this
weekend. It is a memory overload,"

only a social event. The weekend's

An increase in the availability of
tuition grants to public university
students, a bill planning to improve
the current work-study program and
student rights were all topics of dis-
cussion at a conference of the
Michigan Collegiate Coalition
(MCC) this weekend at Oakland
University in Rochester Hills,
"The purpose of the conference
was to lobby for student rights and
for financial aid," said Aberdeen
Marsh, Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) representative and one of
three University students who at-
The MCC is a student organiza-
tion comprised of representatives
from Michigan's 15 public universi-
ties. The organization lobbies in the
state legislature for the rights and in-
terests of students.

pay $.35 a semester for membership
to the group.
MCC Legislative Director Kathy
Swift said political platforms and
projects for the upcoming year were
the main focus of the conference.
"The decisions made will determine
the political direction of the MCC
for the next year," she said.
State House bill 5441, MCC's
Public Service Work-Study Bill is
one piece of legislation the MCC is
currently pushing. The bill, now in
the House Subcommittee on Higher
Education, would allow work-study
students to work for non-profit orga-
nizations in the community instead
of the more institutional jobs within
The legislation would work by
"broadening the employment options
available to students and further sav-
ing the limited resources of strug-
gling community agencies," accord-
ing to an MCC prepared statement.
"I'm very confident that we'll get
it through this year," Swift said of
The Michigan Educational Access
Grant (MEAG) is another proposal
the MCC is currently addressing.
The goal of the proposal is to merge
all the existing state financial aid
grants into one program.
Seventy-five percent of all avail-
able financial aid is awarded to pri-
vate university students, Swift said.
But, there are approximately
250,000 public university students
in Michigan in contrast to 80,000
private university students.
"(MEAG) would make the total
pool of money available to all stu-
dents, no matter what kind of insti-
tution they attend," Swift said.
Although the University of
Michigan was allotted nine MSA-
appointed conferees, only three rep-
Conferee Paul Oppesidano, an
MSA representative from the School
of Public Health, said he hoped the
low turn-out was not a reflection of
a lack of support for MCC.
"A lot of people weren't prepared
to take three days off from school
and their other commitments,"
Oppesidano said there was little
conflict in deciding the agenda for
the year and the extra six votes
would not have made a difference.

Arab teenager kills

JERUSALEM (AP) - A knife-wielding

a quiet Jewish neighborhood yesterday, stab-

One victim managed to shoot and wound
the attacker, who was then seized by furious
Aresidents, ending the rampage in the Baka area
in southern Jerusalem, police said.
Police said they would bar Arabs from trav-
eling into Jerusalem today and would patrol
sensitive districts of the city to head off
clashes, said spokesperson Aharon Elchayani.
The early-morning incident inflamed ten-
sions in the city, running high since the
killings of at least 19 Palestinians on Oct. 8 at
Jerusalem's Temple Mount, when Israeli po-
*ice fired into a stone-throwing mob.
The slain Israelis were an 18-year-old
woman soldier, a garden nursery owner, and a
member of an elite police anti-terrorism unit,
police said. The off-duty police officer managed
to shoot the assailant when he was attacked.
Angry Israeli youths threw stones at Arab-
owned cars on a Jerusalem highway. Shouts of
"Death to the Arab!" resounded in the streets of
Defense Minister Moshe Arens voiced fears
that Arab-Jewish communal violence was re-
ducing prospects of a Middle East peace set-

that will make any reconciliation difficult.

calm, saying the attack was "a tough test of

Iowa pulls upset, 24-23

Saturday's football game showcased two teams
headed in opposite directions. Twenty-second-ranked
Iowa is heading up and moved a step closer to reaching
Pasadena for the first time since 1986. After Iowa's
24-23 victory over Michigan, the Hawkeyes (5-1, 3-0)
are tied with Illinois and Minnesota for first for the
%N conference lead.
On the other hand, Michigan is quickly fallen. The
defeat marked the first time the Wolverines (3-3, 1-2)
have lost two consecutive home games in the same
season in 23 years. The loss also marked the first
homecoming loss in 23 years.
