The Interfraternity Council (IFC)
will ban open fraternity parties,
starting in January.
The Council, which governs 38
of the University's fraternities, made
the decision, after much debate,
Monday night. The decision had
only two dissenting votes.
Fraternities found to have unre-
stricted admission to a party may be
slapped with penalties such as com-
munity service or suspension of so-
cial privileges.
"Any time a fraternity has a
party, they have to have some kind
of written guest list or invitation,"
said Ken Kelly, IFC Advisor.
The ban aims to reduce legal lia-
bility and the risks of damage to
property of these fraternities.
Also, some fraternity members
see it as both helpful in having more
personal parties, and elemental in re-
lations with the community and ad-
"It's a message to the community
- 'We're taking you into considera-
tion and realize you don't like frater-
nities,"' said Gonzalo Marquez,

member of the Sigma Nu fraternity.
Some fraternity members are
worried that the decision will ad-
versely affect rush.
"They were used as a rush-mar-
keting tool by many fraternities,"
said Jeff Stacey, president of IFC.
However, he sees the ban as impor-
tant to ensure increased safety of ev-
eryone who attends the invite-only
"A lot of fraternities that thrive
on open parties for rush will be hurt
by this, but they can easily get
around it with lenient guest lists and
invites. There are a lot of loop-
holes," said Marquez.
Stacey also said he hoped that al-
though the ban was initiated wholly
by the fraternities themselves, it
would impress the fraternities'
alumni, their national leaders, and
the city as a positive step toward
controlled, safe parties.
The decision is also part of a re-
cent effort by the Greek system to-
ward raising awareness of the dangers
of alcohol and improving relations
with the University administration.

Governor-elect John Engler's
campaign promises to cut property
taxes while emphasizing education
are leaving government and univer-
sity officials questioning how the
two contradictory goals can be met.
The Michigan state legislature is
struggling to balance a deficit in the
range of $300 million to $1.3 bil-
Engler promised to cut property
taxes by 20 percent if elected. But if
the property tax cut is instituted, it
would result in a $1.7 billion loss in
revenue for the state. This loss
would need to be replaced by cuts in
other areas.
"There's going to be massive
cuts in virtually every department.
Higher education, I would assume,

Engler Press Secretary John
Truscott said Engler's administration
will be looking to make cuts in ar-
eas other than education, such as the
Department of Labor and Commerce
and in correction and prison pro-
"We do not support cuts in educa-
tion, K-12 or beyond," Truscott said.
"We're trying to (make cuts) as
painlessly as possible so as to pre-
serve essential services."
An 8.5 percent cut to all state
programs was discussed in the House
of Representatives yesterday. A per-
centage cut of this size could result
in a cut of $80 million from funds
for the state's 15 public universities,

But with Engler still waiting to
take over as governor and numerous
changes taking place at the capital, it
is unclear what will happen to
higher education budgets.
"Everything's all up in the air
right now because of the transition
going on between Blanchard's and
Engler's staff," Swift said.
University President James

the effects of budget discussions will
be, but that he is encouraged by

New Year's trip

Twenty-nine times the Big Ten
title has hinged on the Michigan-
Ohio State game. And if Minnesota
upsets Iowa, Saturday's game will
be the 30th.
On 18 of those occasions,
Michigan and Ohio State have
settled the title amongst themselves.
This year, the game will most likely
decide which team will head to the
January 1 Gator Bowl.
Or, one can see this annual battle
as the game which will decide what
team will be forced to head to
Memphis to play in the December
27 Liberty Bowl. A pleasant bowl
site is a nice incentive. As opposed
to the New Year's date and the
warmer climate that the Gator Bowl
in Florida presents, what does
Tennessee really have to offer a team
when away from the gridiron?
"Name five things you can do
while down in Memphis," offensive
lineman Greg Skrepenak was asked.
"Graceland," he quickly replied
with a laugh. Then he paused. And
hemmed and hawed. "I really don't
know," he said.

So while the Gator Bowl will
never be compared to the Rose
Bowl, the incentive for a more
enticing bowl location is at stake -
not to mention that the teams
playing are Michigan and Ohio
Gary Moeller has seen .the view
from both sides. Moeller, who
captained the 1962 Buckeye squad,
recalls how upset former coach
Woody Hayes would be each time
the Buckeyes travelled to Ann Arbor.
According to Moeller, Hayes was
convinced Fritz Crisler purposely
designed, the opposing team
lockerroom to upset the
concentration of the visitors.
The urinals, when flushed,
"sounded like planes taking off."
Before a game, while the team
quietly prepared for the Wolverines,
Hayes would not permit the toilets
to be flushed. The smell forced the
need for windows to be opened. Then
it became cold. So when the team
went out on the field to warm-up,
Buckeye managers were responsible
for flushing and clearing the air.

clearly on that agenda," Duderstadt
said. But he added there will be little
new money coming into the state to
fund Engler's plans.
Duderstadt said that mid-year rises
in tuition were a "possibility" but
that cuts in University programs
would be considered first.
"I think we're going to have to
handle the (winter) term in terms of
budget cuts (not tuition hikes)," he
University Regent Deane Baker
said he was reassured by Governor-
elect John Engler's promise not to
cut educational funding and that he
did not think the 8.5 percent cut to
education was a realistic concern.
