IFC approves
BYOB policy

by Jennifer Silverberg
Daily Staff Reporter
A new bring-your-own-beer al-
cohol policy for the University's
Greek system went into effect last
Wednesday, following a vote by the
Interfraternity Council (IFC) at
its Dec. 11 meeting.
The new alcohol policy will
keep sororities and fraternities from
buying alcohol or having kegs at
parties unless they had the approval
of their national organization. In
addition, each fraternity must ap-
point a member to a committee
charged with overseeing the imple-
mentation of the policy.
Twenty-seven fraternities voted
to pass the newly-proposed alcohol
policy. Sigma Phi, Sigma Alpha Ma
and Theta Delta Chi voted against
the policy while Phi Sigma Kappa,
Chi Phi, Kappa Sigma and Phi
Gamma Delta abstained from the
vote. Tau Gamma Nu and Triangle
were absent from the meeting.
"A lot of people don't realize
that this policy does not regulate
alcohol at small, controlled parties
like date parties, two-ways and
brotherhood activities," said Bruce
Namerow, the newly-elected IFC
president. The new alcohol policy
only covers parties where atten-
dance doubles the house's member-
ship, he said.

"Any of you who think the fra-
ternity will suffer with the alcohol
policy is wrong," said Pi Kappa Phi
rep. Polk Wagner during an open
discussion before the vote. "As long
as everyone follows the policy
nothing bad happens to the frater-
nity except you lose your liability."
Former IFC President Matt
Commers was pleased with the out-
come of the vote.
"It passed by more of a majority
than I expected," Commers said.
"This was a culmination of a long
democratic process. It was a tough
effort and I couldn't be more
There were some fraternities,
however, that did not favor the
"We voted against BYOB be-
cause we don't feel the IFC has the
right to dictate as to how each indi-
vidual fraternity should behave in
that arena," said LSA senior
Andrew Astley, a member of Sigma
The IFC vote required a two-
thirds majority to pass the policy.
The alcohol policy was passed by 19
of the 20 sororities in the
Panhellenic Association the previ-
ous night.
"An educated house couldn't
have made any other choice but to
vote for the policy," Namerow said.

berated Campbell for his
"He is helping to perpetuate the
image of Christopher Columbus as
a hero," he said.
More than 500 Native
Americans protested along the pa-
rade route chanting "Colon, go
home" and hurling paint-filled
balloons, fruit, and rocks at Colon
and Campbell.
Winterhawk said Campbell was
struck in the face with an apple.
"It was a particularly symbolic
projectile. It shows that, just like
an apple, he is red on the outside
and white on the inside,"
Winterhawk said.
Two Native American
protesters were arrested for sitting
in the path of a parade float.
Two animal rights activists
dressed as a rat and a rabbit carry-
ing a banner reading, "GM: Cut
Animal Test $ Not Worker $,"
also were arrested as they walked
onto the parade route in front of
the General Motors float.
A GM spokesperson refused to
comment on the incident.
Other practices and institutions
also came under fire.
Cole charged that the
Tournament of Roses committee
"is under a leadership entirely
made up of white males over the
age of 40."
Although members do not deny
this fact, they asserted that compo-
sition is inherent in the group's se-
lection process.
"Anybody can submit an appli-

cation. The selections, as well as
promotions, are all based on
merit," committee member Bob
Cooper said.
"Women just simply have not
been on the committee long enough
to get high-level positions. It takes
years and years of dedicated service
to escalate to that position," he
Dixie Allen, who has been on
the committee for nine years, said
women on the committee under-
stand the system and are not both-
ered by it.
"There are more than 100
women out of 850 people now. The
gentlemen treat us really well,"
she said.
Another controversy arose over
the use of Los Angeles County
Sheriff's Department officers to
augment security forces the day of
the parade.
Members of the Pasadena com-
munity protested these officers af-
ter rumors leaked of a white-
supremacist group operating
within the department.
L.A. County Sheriff Sherman
Block denied the existence of such
an organization and refused to send
officers unless the City of
Pasadena apologized.
The city council issued Block
the requested letter in late January.
Councilmember William
Paparian said, "We did send him
some sort of letter, but we did not
apologize, because we have nothing
to apologize for."
Despite all the controversy, the
parade rolled on.
"The weather was great, I had
an outstanding time," Cheney said.

The University's research expen-
ditures reached record levels last
year, reported Vice President of
Research William Kelly at the
December meeting of the University
Board of Regents.
In a report presented to the re-
gents, Kelly said the University
spent $324 million on research pro-
jects last year - a 13.3 percent in-
crease over the 1989-90 year.
The increase in research expendi-
tures was made possible by large in-
creases from federal sources and
private foundations - specifically
the National Science Foundation.
However, Kelly said optimistic
projections for increase in
University research cannot be made
because of a recently-imposed fed-
eral government cap on indirect cost
recovery expenditures - the
amount of money the University can
bill the federal government as indi-
rectly related to research

"For the University of
Michigan, (the cap) will go into ef-
feet ... July 1, 1992, and could cost
the institution as much as $10 mil-
lion or more per year in its indirect
cost recoveries," Kelly said. "That
will obviously have profound ef-
fects upon our capacity to support
and maintain the University's over-
all research activities at their cur-
rent levels," he added.
In other business, the regents re-
duced the size of the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics from 20 to 13 members
by cutting the number of Faculty
Senate members, alumni representa-
tives and executive officer members.
In addition, the regents unani-
mously endorsed a resolution made
by the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics that
would curtail betting on collegiate
sports events.

times the amount.
Judy Holtz, spokesperson for the
Inspector General's Office, said
there are two parts to every audit.
"We are basically the fact finder,
then it's up to the program people
to go from there," Holtz said. "It is

up to them to determine how to col-
lect the money back."
Tom Butts, executive director of
the University's Washington, D.C.,

audit is not a factor in upcoming ne-

Committee member Bob Cooper
said the number is about average.
"Breakdowns are par for the
course. We have between five and
ten each year. It's not a big deal, re-
ally. We just tow. the floats the
rest of the way. It really doesn't
mar the parade as a whole," Cooper

felt that without a pay hike, City
Council seats would only be acces-
sible to the rich.

ileged position from serving in a

Last month, Councilmembers
Kirk Dodge (R-2nd Ward) and Kurt
Zimmer (D-4th Ward) introduced a
resolution asking the council not
only to reject the pay raise but also

the most part, protesters refrained
from interrupting the procession.
Cooper said, "Things went very
well this year, especially consider-
ing all of the organized move-
ments. Security was less of a con-
cern than we expected."
Another potential problem was
inclement weather.
Severe winter rain storms
showered Southern California for
several days before the parade and
area meteorologists predicted rain
for New Year's morning.
However, the weather held out,
and spectators were treated to a
beautiful day with temperatures in
the mid-70s and a cloudless sky.
Cheney also said he was touched
by the presence of former hostage
Joseph Cicippio at the parade.
"I'm more happy than I've been
in my whole life," Cicippio told

But Brater rejected the motion as
failed without a roll call of each
council member. On Monday, Dodge
requested such a call.
"I knew this would fail, but
called for a roll call because there is
an obligation for everyone to get on
the record with this thing," he said.
The mayor's annual salary, for-
merly $15,000, will now increase to
$16,500. The council members'

However, one LSA sophomore
who uses a fake ID, said she fre-
quents all the bars on South Univer-
sity and has never been caught.
"I'm not worried about using
my ID. I've rarely been questioned
about it," she said. "But I think it's
easier for a woman to get into a bar
with a fake ID. When I'm with a
guy, the bouncer usually gives him a

a misdemeanor and a possible jail
sentence as a penalty for offenders.
