Drake's shop shuts
down after 65 years

The sign in the front window of the small
shop with the red and white striped awning
reads "Our 65th year."
And 1993 is also the last year for Drake's
Sandwich Shop.
Drake's closed suddenly Friday night, leav-
ing employees and customers reeling with
"It was more than just a job, it was like a
family here. I can't believe I only got three
hours notice," said employee Amy Cimaglia.
As the news spread through town Friday,
loyal Drake's customers flocked to the store to
spend the last few minutes they could in the
beloved eating establishment that provided
them with the best candy and tea selection in
town. Drake's was also popular for its sand-
wiches with names like "Michigan," "Purdue"
and "Northwestern."
First-time visitors were often amazed at the
archaic interior featuring wooden booths, tin-

pressed ceilings and lunch counter. The interior
was annually painted a drab olive green with
black trim, the floors painted grey.
Truman Tibbals, the man who has owned
and run Drake's since 1926, was missing from
Friday's closing. Tibbals, who is 86 years old,
was recently hospitalized for cancer. His con-
dition placed the future of the restaurant in
Friday afternoon, his children, Eleanor
and Paul Tibbals of California, made the deci-
sion to close down the Ann Arbor landmark.
Tibbals has seen generations of Ann
Arborites and University students move
through the door of his sandwich shop, and

Full of idiosyncrasies and methods from a
long-gone era, all orders at Drake's were
written by hand by the customer, a tradition
which goes back to World War II and labor
shortages. Malts and sundaes were served

Drake's Sandwich Shop, located on North University Avenue, announced its closing yesterday after more than 65 years of serving malts,
floats and sandwiches to Ann Arbor residents. The announcement came after owner Truman Tibbles was diagnosed with cancer.

Nov 16 and 17

After four hours of deliberation,
CSJ voted to disallow the use of the
Beavis n' Butt-Head party name on
the ballot. The party would have for
days to either find a new name or
become independent candidates.
However, the filing of an appeal
and a stay of enforcement by Beavis
n' Butt-Head candidates made the
court's decision on the party name
moot. Because the appeal cannot be
heard before the elections take place,
the,name will remain on the ballot.
"The bottom line is the Beavis n'
Butt-Head name will probably get on
the ballot, but it was proven deceptive
by the Keg Party," said Keg Party
member Dave Pava.

the Students' Party. As part of their
platform, candidates have written a
"diversity statement" that outlines the
way in which they want to diversify
MSA. It includes:
increasing funding to MAC and
Minority Student Services;

University's recruiting program to
include more involvement with the
community outside of high schools;
developing a lesbian, gay and
bisexual studies program with LGBi
