Madej added he is confident tick-
ets will sell out once they are
available to the public.
Executive Director of the U-M
Alumni Association Robert Forman
"The foremost reason for the
decrease in participation is the re-
cession. It's very difficult to have
the resources to take a trip like this,
and that has been reflected in ticket
sales," Forman said.
In an effort to bolster university
spirit, the Alumni Association of-
fered a Rose Bowl package - in-
cluding a $47 ticket to the game, air-
fare, beach hotel accommodations, a
New Year's Eve party, and a tradi-
tional "dinner of champions" featur-
ing appearances by Bob Hope and
Tony Orlando.
The prices for the four-day and
six-day packages are $1,447 and
$1,335 respectively.
Forman said 850 packages have

been sold this year, 1850 less than
last year.
And while the Wolverine spirit
seems to be wavering, representa-
tives from the University of Wash-
ington (U-W) appear to be a little
more enthusiastic.
Washington ticket offices re-
ceived just under 41,000 tickets to
sell, said U-W Sports Information
Director Jim Daves.
Daves said he does not expect a
problem in selling their tickets.
"So far, ticket sales have been
just like in the past - which is
great, Daves said. "But when you
go to the Rose Bowl three times in a
row, it's not a surprise to see
enthusiasm levels dip."
U-W first-year student Hans
Ruegamer said that while the ex-
citement of the game has caught on,
there is still some concern about the
cost of the trip.
"Everyone's pleased that we're
going (to the Rose Bowl) for the
third consecutive time, but it really
is a bitch of a trip, and it costs a lot
to make it," Ruegamer said.

nator from U-M Housing Security,
said students and officers must work
"It takes a team effort. Everyone
has to work together or it doesn't
work," she said.
Chenevert added, "The students
have to help us to help them. By tak-
ing extra precautions, you can pre-
vent anything from happening."
Robert Davenport, North Cam-
pus Supervisor, said, "If one student
reads this article and gets one thing
out of it, we've been successful."

have to stay current on in my job,"
Nordby said. "This is directly
related to my professional work
and I would have to keep current
Many administrators said teach-
ing and administrating complement
each other well.
"Teaching provides intellectual
stimulation and a nice opportunity
to interact with students.
Administration gives one a strong
sense of accomplishment as
policies are crafted and
implemented and the pace is
considerably faster," Cook said.
"Together they make a nice pair."
Vice President and Chief Finan-
cial Officer Farris Womack also
teaches a week-long summer semi-
nar on higher education finance. He
agreed with Cook.
"I don't separate the two func-
tions too much. For me it would be
difficult not to have direct commu-
nication with the academic
community and students," Womack
But Mary Ann Swain, associate
vice president for academic affairs,
said it is difficult to find time to
teach and fulfill administrative du-
ties simultaneously. Swain used to
teach a doctoral seminar in the
School of Nursing until the time
commitment became too
"Both give satisfaction but they
don't fit together easily. The time
demands are very different," Swain
said. "But I always liked to teach
and I miss it."
Not all administrators planned
to teach. Sharphorn - the U-M's
assistant general counsel - has
taught Law and Social
Organization, a sociology class,
during the winter term for the past
three years. He began teaching
almost by accident.
"The first time I did it (because)
someone got sick so I filled in. I
enjoy it because it's a completely
different kind of fun," Sharphorn
said. "It's fun to be dealing with
students who are neither in trouble
nor causing trouble. Usually I'm in
contact with students when there's
trouble of some sort."
Although they receive payment

beginning of the graduate seminar she teaches.

for teaching, most administrators
said salary is not their motivation.
"There's a lot more work than
the compensation you get paid,"
Sharphorn said.
Many administrators said
interaction with students is their
real payoff.
"I like students. That's what the
university is all about and it's
totally different from what I
normally do," Sharphorn said. "It
helps your perspective to see what
students' real concerns are and
what students are doing."
Nordby agreed.

"It's a lot of added time but I en-
joy contact with lively, thoughtful,
hard-working students and the op-
portunity to think about university
problems from a faculty
perspective," she said.
Most administrators said they
plan to continue teaching as long as
they can. In fact, Nordby plans to
retire from her administrative
position in June, but she said she is
not quite ready to quit teaching.
"Not yet," Nordby said. "When
it starts feeling like more work than
I want to do, than I'll think about it.
But not now."

After seizing the seaside airport

Three Marines entered the
dented iron gates of the deserted
U.S. Embassy and hoisted the flag
on a wobbly pole amid a litter of
rusting typewriters. The $50 million
embassy was looted down to the
rope on its flagpole after being
evacuated last year.
Officials also raised U.S. flags
on both sides of the Green Line
separating the two warring clans in
the capital. Old Glory went up over

a liaison office in south Mogadishu
and over the former U.S.
ambassador's residence in the
For the first time in weeks, a
World Food Program-chartered
plane flew in 17 tons of a powdery
mixture of sugar, beans, flour and
vitamins given to babies and mal-
nourished people. It was quickly
unloaded and taken to warehouses.
Before the Marines' arrival,
such food convoys were guarded by
militia personnel. Often there were
clashes with other clans, or the food
was stolen.
"I've been waiting for this day
for so long," said Victor Tanner, a
UNICEF worker. "This airport usu-
ally is a pretty nasty place, but the
town today is like after a Sunday
football game."
About 300,000 Somalis have

are now threatened with famine.
