steps to
good life

People need a well-balanced
value system which requires con-
stant devotion not only to work but
to health, relationships, and love,
said Dr. Stephen Covey, author of
The New York Times best-seller
"The Seven Habits of Highly
Effective People."
"Things are not as important as
relationships," Covey said. He
stressed seven personal habits, in-
'cluding positive thinking and the
development of listening and com-
munication skills, to create well-
rounded, healthy people.
Covey spoke at the Business
School on Friday as part of a two-
day executive skills workshop.
Roughly 200 Business School stu-
dentsrassembled atyHale

Covey, who is also founder of
the Covey Leadership Center - an
organization that has helped train
employees at IBM, AT&T,
Prudential, and Proctor and Gamble
focused his discussion on the im-
portance of "principle-centered
He emphasized the value of
"personal leadership" based on a
small number of fundamental prin-
ciples. Creating a Personal Mission
Statement, whereby people's inner-;
most values and aspirations are con-
cretely expressed in writing, repre-
sents the first step to establishing a
principle centered life-style, he said.;
"It's not as easy to live by these
principles as he makes it sound,"
said Tony Crooke, a second year
MBA. Crooke explained that the'
culturally-instilledndesire forr'
wealth challenges us to deviate
from a strict adherence to a well-
balanced life-style.
Earl Bloom, astudent in the
MBA Evening Program and an em-~
ployee at ALPS Automotive during
the day, said Covey's appearance and
the executive skills workshop are a
result of the Business School's ef-
fort to recover from its recent slip
in rating. He added that while most
extra-curricular presentations have
been of an "informative" nature, the
Covey workshop was unique for its
"instructive" orientation.

Danny Sugarman, manager of the
Doors, spoke at Rackham
Auditorium to kick off Alcohol
Awareness Week last night. He also
read from his new book,
Wonderland Avenue.
Priti Marwah, co-coordinator of
Alcohol Awareness and a Michigan
Student Assembly representative,
said Sugarman was chosen because of
his background with alcohol and
drugs and because he was someone in
the real world.
"Jim Morrison made being in-
telligent very attractive. He made
getting drunk and loaded very at-
tractive," Sugarman said.
Sugarman said it was a "mixed
blessing knowing (Morrison)."
He told how as a teenager, he got
to work for one of America's
biggest rock bands, become friends
with Jim Morrison and eventually
became a junkie, a victim of his
Sugarman learned from
Morrison, "Don't sayno to experi-
ences, feelings."
And Sugarman did not say no. He
used alcohol and pills and eventu-
ally heroin. .
He started shooting up heroin
with Pam Morrison, Jim's widow,
who later died from an overdose.
"But by getting high, it was
bringing Jim in the room," he said.
Heroin took over his life.
Ironically, "it was the drug I swore
I'd never take."
But Sugarman did. "After the
first time I took heroin, I under-
stood why people would steal for
There are three stages to addic-
tion, he said. The first is the
"honeymoon period." Then there is

a period, Sugarman described as
"using more-and-more-and-getting-
less-and-less." Finally, there is the
"bottoming-out period."
During his "bottoming-out pe-'
riod," life became unbearable,
Sugarman said. He and his girl-
friend, Tiffany, whose stepfather
was a heroin dealer, would stay in
his house for weeks on end.
Eventually, they were locking
themselves in the bathroom which
was splattered with blood from;

ally. They often combined heroin"
and cocaine.
"Heroin was the drug that
brought us to our knees, and cocaine
was the drug that delivered the,
knock-out punch," he said.
Although Sugarman had tried to
quit before, it was an attack of hep-
atitis that finally got him help in
quitting. He landed in a mental hos-
pital, "where I started to grow up a

The University's Safety and
Security Advisory Committee is re-
viewing two recent incidents where
campus police drew weapons while
arresting unarmed suspects.
The committee met Friday to re-

Snyder said.
The first incident under review
occurred on Sept. 17 of this year.
After chasing a suspect across cam-
pus to Angell Hall, a campus police
officer drew his handgun while ap-
prehending him.
The second incident happened
Oct. 3 when a University officer

matters we choose to look in to, but
in the Angell Hall and subsequent
incidents, there were no complaints
filed by members of the public,"
Snyder said.
Snyder said the committee has
received a large amount of testi-
mony, but has yet to file its report.
"What we've done is reviewed
the documents on the incidents, and
statements by witnesses and offi-
cers. What's left to do now is dis-
cuss what all that material means,"
he added.
The committee's task is to over-
see the DPS S and report to the
Provost, Snyder said. It meets about
twice a month and consists of four
faculty, four staff members, and
four students.
"It's important to note that we
do not conduct investigations, we
review investigations that have al-
ready been done. We can commission
fact finding studies, but we do not
conduct police investigations in the
traditional sense," Snyder said.
He added the committee will
meet again Tuesday evening, and
expects to report on the firearms
policy and the first incident to the
Provost by the end of the week.

"We're reviewing three things.
First, we're conducting a review of
the DPSS firearm policy to see if it

Any two-bit sports fan knows
that every sports journalist is
merely a superstar wanna-be whose
dreams of athletic grandeur ran
amuck during the eighth grade
when the coach asked in a friendly
yet condescending manner, "Have
you considered the debating team?"
Nevertheless, these pathetic
creatures find comfort and solace
in engaging in their own contests.
Here at the Daily, the most impor-
tant spectacle by far is the annual
football game against the
Michigan State News. And this
year, after decades of frustration
and despair, the Daily finally re-
deemed itself with a somewhat
easy 3-0 (in touchdowns) victory

over the host News.
"It, was a great game,'"
Managing Sports Editor
Rennie said. "A great, great


The bloodbath was so intense
that no one scored for quite a
while, until quarterback Jim Foss
found Bruce Inosencio open in the
end zone. It was at this point that
the teams, acknowledging the even-
tual descent of the sun and the fact
that several staff members of the:
News couldn't count to seven, de-
cided to make it a "first team to
score three wins" match.
"There's nuthin' quite like a
bowl of Fruity Pebbles after a hard
day," was all News sports editor
Matt Rudy had to say.
