film audiencesin 1986asChris Cham-
bers, the cigarette-smoking adoles-
cent in Rob Reiner's "Stand By Me."
Since then, he has starred in such
films as "The Mosquito Coast,"
"Sneakers" and "Indiana Jones and
the Last Crusade."
His controversial portrayal of
Mike Waters, the narcoleptic young
prostitute in Gus Vant Sant's criti-
cally acclaimed 1991 picture "My
Own Private Idaho," garnered Phoe-
nix a cult-like following.
Just as interesting as his screen
career, however, is Pheonix's child-
hood. Born in Madras, Oregon and
raised in Caracas, Venezuela, he was
namedafter theriverof life in Herman

Hesse's "Siddhartha." His parents
worked as missionaries for Children
of God, while he and his younger
sister, Rainbow, performed song and
dance routines on Caracas street cor-
ners. The family moved to Los Ange-
les when Phoenix was 10 and his
career began shortly thereafter.
Fellini, the Italian New Waver,
first found success on American
shores in the early 'S5s with films
such as "La Strada," "8 1/2" and
"Amarcord." His esoteric penchant
for religious symbolism and deeply
personal imagery earned him interna-
tional stardom and a place in an elite
pantheon of directors that includes
Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles.
Deplored by feminists as a "dirty
old man" and condemned by the
Vatican as "obscene," Fellini basked
-albeit reclusively- in his success.

dates in three of Ann Arbor's five
wards. Democrats in the 1st and 5th
Wards face token opposition from
candidates of the Libertarian and
Tisch parties, who have never polled
above single digits in Ann Arbor.
First Ward Libertarian candidate
David Raaflaub bases his chances
of winning on a split in the Black
vote between Democrat Patricia
Vereen-Dixon and Tisch candidate
Martin Rhodes, both African Ameri-
cans. In the 5th Ward, Libertarian
candidate Kent Hyne said he has
aligned a coalition of conservative
interests against the heavily favored
Democrat Christopher KoIb.
Incumbent Peter Fink-the only

Republican candidate to win the en-
dorsement of the Ann Arbor News
- is expected to carry the predomi-
nately Republican 2nd Ward.
"It's a hard ward to win in,"
Gourdji acknowledged.
After losing all but one council
seat in the April 1992 election, Re-
publicans chipped away at the
Democratic majority. The GOP
closed the margin to 7-4 after the
April 1993 election, a voting bloc
sufficient to bar Democrats from
overriding a Sheldon veto.
Republicans last held a majority
in 1989. Then-MayorJerry Jernigan
presided over a 7-4 GOP majority.
One constant in Ann Arbor poli-
tics, Mayor Sheldon said, is that
control over the council "swings
back and forth very quickly."

"I have made all my films in the
felliniesque genre," he once face-
tiously remarked.
Nicknamed "the magician," the
avant-garde filmmaker, whose signa-
ture fascination with clowns mani-
fested itself in many of his 20 pic-
tures, ran away from his home town
of Rimini at the age of seven to join
the circus. He was quickly retrieved
by his parents, yetIisabsurdist inclina-
tions lived on.
A contemporaryof IngiarBergman
and Michelangelo Antonioni, the im-
modest director once listed one of his
own films among the ten best ever.
Before being honored with a lifetime
achievement award at last March's
Academy Awards ceremony, he had
won four Oscars for BestForeign Film.

She celebrated her Halloween by
dressing up "kind of like a vampire
but without the teeth because I didn't
want to go that far," and by going
party-hopping with friends who allI
noticed'a spooky change in the
weekend's mood.
"You could tell that not everyone
was out just to get drunk. They were
more into checking out all of the cos-
tumes. The best one I saw was this
guy all decked up as a fairy with a
wand, heels,an hose," Brosnan said.
The chance to break rules and for-
get inhibitions proved to be a large
appeal among students.
"I like Halloween because it gives
everyone a chance to express them-
selves in a visual way but above all, it's
just like RuPaul says 'You just gotta
have fun,' said LSA junior Maggie
"There really is a broader spec-
trum of expression here," she added.
"Halloween lets people experiment

we'll go to the bar."
At the other side of the restaurant,
one student discussed how he and his
friends had chartered two buses to
transport students to and from Wis-
consin for $50.
"In going last year, I know there's
a huge demand for students to go who
maybe don't have a ride and want to
go. So why not provide a ride for
them?" said Michael Teich, an LSA
While Michiganders were unpre-
pared for the low Madison tempera-
tures, Wisconsin students said they
could notbelieve the numberof people
who had made the 7-hour trek.
"'m so excited thatMichigan people
are here, butit's kind of strange being at
your own school and not knowing one
person on the bar line," said Wisconsin
junior Jennifer Keil.
And the bar lines were long before,
after and during the game.
One bounceratapopularbar, KK's,
commented that he was paid by Michi-
gan fans tobe allowed to cutthe line, but
refused to say how much.
Thursday night, University students
said they werehoping for avictory with
a safe celebration, but Saturday's events
did not live up to their expectations.
Wisconsin and University students
without tickets hit the bars early Satur-
day morning to cheer for their home
Matt Fischer, a senior in the Busi-
ness School, commented on the friendly
rivalry between the fans.
"We lost the game, but we had a
good time partying at the bar with our
friends from Wisconsin," he said.
With the end of the game, ticketless
fans from both teams filed out onto
State Street, which is the main strip of
stores, restaurants andbars in Madison.
There, stores selling Wisconsin para-
phernalia were buzzing with people
eager to buy sweatshirts, T-shirts, and
hats with the Badger logo.
The State Street celebration was
calm compared to the one at Camp
Randall Stadium, whereWisconsin fans
stormed the field, knocking down rail-

ings and fences, and trampling people
in their path.
"At first I was upset that I did not
have a ticket for the game, but after
whathappened, I'm glad Iwas faraway
from the stadium," said Vanessa Karp,
ajunior at Wisconsin who watched the
game at home with friends.
University students caught in the
surge said the scene far surpassed the
rowdiness of past Final Four celebra-4
tions on Michigan's South University
"You felt like it was a war. You
looked around and saw bodies, blood,
and CPR," said Allison Shapiro, an
LSA sophomore.
And Michigan students said the loss
and the stampede put a damper on the
rest of the weekend.
"Originally I was very excited about
coming to see my sister and hopefully
beating Wisconsin, but not only did we
lose, Ialmostdied," saidLindsayBeller,
a first-year LSA student.
Wisconsin students saidHalloween
celebrations in Madison are usually
some of the best party weekends.
Joel Sawyer, a 1991 Wisconsin
graduate said he could not think of a
better weekend to visit his alma mater
"This is acompletely unique week-
end, not only is it the Michigan game,
but it's also Halloween.... Madison
this weekendiscrazier than normal,"he
However, the students from both
schools agreed that after seeing the
postgame hysteria, the Halloween par-
tying wouldnotbe as exciting as inthe
and seeing what I did, I can't begin to
think about partying right now," said
Dana Maynard, a junior at Wisconsin.
One student at a costume party at a
fraternity house was able to find humor
in the events at Camp Randall Saturday
night when he dressed as a trampled
student, wearing a Wisconsin jersey
and with blood painted onto his face.
