victory in
Michigan football started this sea-
*on "chasing six." Tomorrow, the
Wolverines can get number six. Cru-
elly, however, the six represents vic-
tories and not the sixth consecutive
Big Ten title Michigan wanted.
Although the title would have se-
cured a position in the Rose Bowl,
Michigan (3-3 Big Ten, 5-4 overall)
can virtually guarantee a bowl bid
with a win over Minnesota (3-3, 4-5)
the Metrodome Saturday at 12:30
p.m. on ESPN.
Besides any postseason implica-
tions, the Wolverines also risk the
"Little Brown Jug" when they charge
into the Metrodome. The "Jug," which
goes to the winner of the Michigan-
Minnesota game, is a tradition dating
to back to the 1903 game.
While Michigan has a virtual
stranglehold on the trophy, losing only

Jim Wacker will be looking to front-
load this decade. To aid his effort,
Wacker will field a team much stron-
ger than the one Michigan blew out
63-13 a year ago.
After losing the Big Ten opener to
Penn State, Minnesota beat three of
is next five Big Ten opponents, los-
ig by a combined total of seven points
in its two losses.
Before anyone discounts the Min-
nesota wins coming against weak
teams, Michigan coach Gary Moeller
notes they gave Wisconsin its only
Big Ten loss so far.
"Minnesota beat a very good Wis-
consin team, and they are a team with
a lot of weapons," Moeller said. "Their
Sffense is made to throw and catch the
all, but their running game has cone
along very well. Playing them in the
Metrodome will be very tough for
Even though Michigan is coming
off a 25-10 victory against Purdue,
the level of difficulty of this game
could be intensified by the three-point,
come-from-behind loss Minnesota
uffered against Illinois last week.
After the game, Wacker could only
refocus his team to tomorrow's show-
down against the Wolverines.
"The loss to Illinois was really
disappointing," Wacker said. "We
played so well for three quarters, but
when the game was on the line, Illi-
nois made the big plays.

Veterans Day

Quietly and with little fanfare, area
veterans and members of the campus
Reserve Officers Training Corps com-
memorated Veterans Day. For many
on campus, yesterday was merely
another day - except there was no
mail delivery or bank service.
Members of a tri-service campus
ROTC attachment gathered at 5 p.m.
to lower the American flag in a spe-
cial ceremony, capping a week of
ally memorial events.
But for many other students, Vet-

erans Day is important because of
friends and relatives who served in
the military.
Jennifer Clemente, an LSA sopho-
more studying chemistry, said Veter-
ans Day is important to her because
her grandparents served in World War
"My grandfather served as an
ambulance driver in World War II
and my grandmother was a nurse,"
she said. "That's how they met."
Clemente said she wished she

Clinton speech, women's memorial mark day

dent Clinton saluted American veter-
ans yesterday and said the United
States must never shrink from what's
necessary "to keep our nation secure
and our people prosperous."
"A grateful nation remembers,"
the president said at Arlington Na-
tional Cemetery after placing a wreath
at the Tomb of the Unknowns:-
He called attention to the presence
of 17 Army Rangers who took part in
the fire fight in Somalia in which 18
Americans were killed Oct. 3. Prais-
ing their "great ability, success and
unbelievable valor," Clinton said,

"We are proud of them." The audi-
ence stood and applauded.
Clinton later visited the Veterans
Affairs Medical Center in Martins-
burg, W. Va., and said America can
pay part of its debt to veterans by
assuring them comprehensive health
care under his national plan.
"We know we have a moral obli-
gation to protect their security,"
Clinton said. "I wanted to come here
to this hospital today to drive that
point home."
In other Veterans Day events,
women veterans from Michigan say
yesterday's unveiling in Washington

of a monument to their sisters who
served in Vietnam helps bring them
well-deserved recognition. -
The new Vietnam Women's Me-
morial stands in the nation's capital
alongside the many monuments that
depict male soldiers.
The tribute is long overdue, said
Jane Marcum, a Royal Oak nurse who
is a veteran of Vietnam and Operation
Desert Storm.
"It's been a long time coming,"
Marcom said before leaving for Wash-
ington to attend the ceremony. "People
are still not willing to believe women
went to war."

Marcum said the memorial to the
11,500 women who served in Viet-
nam is bittersweet.
"There is a little bit of sadness
because of the eight nurses who were
killed" in the war, she said. "I hope
people will remember this and not get
us into any more wars."
Army veteran Linda Dubiel of
Clinton Township, who served as a
nurse in Vietnam, said she can vividly
recall the horrors of her 10-month
tour of duty and the pain on the faces
of soldiers she treated.
"It was a never-ending procession
of destruction," she said.

Dubiel was 23 when she volun-
teered to serve in Vietnam in 1967.
"I thought I would go over and
save the world," she said.
But Dubiel said she was unpre-
pared for the reality of combat that
greeted her at Pleiku in Vietnam's
central highlands, about 200 miles
north of Saigon.
"The first boy I saw come in didn't
have any arms, and I thought 'Oh my
God,"' she said. "We didn't have him
too long."
Dubiel said she is happy to see
women veterans get their own monu-

Despite 'Outback flu'
solar car team finishes 11th

ADELAIDE, Australia - An exhausted
solar car team overcame "Outback flu" and
technical difficulties to secure an 11th place
finish at the World Solar Car Challenge.
The maize and cobalt-blue car crossed the
finish line at 1:17 p.m. Friday, local time. The
team beat its previous record by more than
seven hours.
"It's finally over," said Deanne Wheaton,
the Maize and Blue driver who took the car
across the finish line. "It's been one of the
longest six days. A lot longer than Sunrayce.
I'm glad it's over."
The team members, many of whom had not
showered in five days, bathed in champagne
from South Australia aftercompletingthe 1,900-
mile race. They exchanged T-shirts with the
crew of the second-place finisher, Biel of Swit-

"As we say, it's all in racing. I'm looking
forward to seeing the University of Michigan
win the World Solar Car Challenge in 1996,"
Wheaton said.
The team overcame a low battery charge to
beat its 1990 time. The Maize and Blue's bat-
tery was charged at 4 percent upon pulling over
on Thursday. After the sunset recharging pe-
riod, it was at 11 percent.
Sunny skies replaced battery power to pro-
pel the car to Adelaide.
Almost half of the Maize and Blue team and
support crew fought bouts of "Outback flu" on
the final days of the race.
This flu is a highly contagious viral infec-
tion that attacks the digestive system. Its vic-
tims experience such symptoms as nausea, diar-

semester devoted to evil

The 1994 Winter Term promises

gion is sponsoring an interdiscipli-
nary exploration of evil, entitled, "The
Theory and Practice of Evil."

and Elaine Pagels of Princeton Uni-
Williams spoke of his hopes for
the course. "The idea was to invite
those whose professional lives have
led them to an understanding of evil
in their particular field." He cited the
