'M' basketball players to be arrested by end of week
FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
The three Michigan basketball
team members accused of stealing
beer from a local convenience store
are expected to surrender to police
today to be arrested and arraigned on
charges of second-degree retail fraud.
The players have five business
days to surrender to police from Mon-
day. After that, warrants will be is-
sued for their arrest.

To many, the 1800 Chemistry lec-
ture hall represents the intimidating,
impersonal side the University, where
instructors lecture and hundreds of
nameless faces listen.
But to Brian Coppola, this year's
Golden Apple recipient, this room is
a playground, where he interacts with
the students, while teaching them
Coppola, an organic chemistry
instructor, said, "My favorite part of
(my) job is being in front of the class.
I like to see and interact with the
students. I like to see them get turned
pn by learning chemistry."
The Golden Apple Award was
started four years ago by the 12-mem-
ber student group, Students Honoring
Outstanding Undergraduate Teach-
ing (SHOUT), which is sponsored by
14illel, the Michigan Student Assem-
bly and the Office of Student Affairs.
Ballots were distributed through-
out the campus for students to nomi-
nate their favorite professors or lec-
*turers. Then the winning instructor
was selected by the amount of ballots
and the quality of comments of sup-
port on the ballot, said SHOUT mem-
ber and LSA junior Niels Rosenquist.
The winner receives a $1,000
award, and delivers a speech on April
13 at Rackham. The theme of the
speech is what Coppola would ideally
give as his last lecture.
The purpose of the award,
Rosenquist said, is to honor teaching.
"A lot of times, people are re-
warded for research or publishing
something. (But), these winners are
honored for their educating of the
undergraduates," he said.
Coppola said the award was a
"very, very nice honor" because "it
was a completely student selectedand
Coppola is the first physical sci-
ence instructor to win the award.
"That is a bit of a surprise," he
said. "It's a strong statement of sup-
port for science and math curriculum
all over LSA."

Ann Arbor police spokesperson
Sgt. Phil Scheel said a total of seven
people face one count each of second-
degree retail fraud. The charge is a
misdemeanor punishable by 92 days
in jail and a $100 fine.
Names of the suspects are not be-
ing released until they are arraigned,
he said. The arraignment was expected
later this week.
The warrants come after three
Michigan basketball players were
suspended for one game for violating
team rules. The suspended players
were reinstated Monday, but two foot-
ball players were suspended while
police investigate the reported conve-
nience store theft.
Ray Jackson, Jimmy King and
Chris Fields played in last night's
game. The Wolverines beat the Indi-
ana Hoosiers, 91-64.

and they will deal with this situation."
Ann Arbor police said charges
against three students stem from an
incident Jan. 12 at a Dairy Mart.
Charges against two others stem from
an incident Jan. 20 at the store.
In addition to the students, a store
clerk faces one count of second-de-
gree retail fraud. Scheel is not sure if
the seventh person is a student.
Roberson described the trio as re-
pentant in The Ann Arbor News and
said it would never happen again.
"The matter is in the hands of the
courts," Roberson said.
"The Michigan discipline has
taken place, unless there are charges
we're unaware of."

was not entirely of

DAILY STAFF REPORTERS
The announcement by Vice Presi-
dent for Student Affairs Maureen
Hartford to remove Robert C. Hughes
as housing director has shaken up the
division and left many unanswered
Through several interviews, offi-
cials in both the Office of Student
Affairs and the Housing Division said
Hughes, director of the Housing Di-
vision for the past 16 years, did not
leave entirely of his own volition.
"He was pushed," said one Hous-
ing official, who spoke on the condi-
tion of anonymity.
The Housing Division staff gath-
ered yesterday at the Waldenwoods
retreat in Hartland, which is outside
Detroit, to discuss total quality man-
agement and other staff issues.
Hughes entered his second week
as executive director of development
and external relations for student af-
fairs, although he is still working out
of his office in the Student Activities
He will be working out of the
Office of Development, although he
will still report to Hartford.
In a telephone interview, Hartford
dismissed charges that Hughes had
"This is a lateral move. He will be
at the same salary," she said.
Hughes now makes $107,604 an-
nually. He received a 4-percent in-
crease last year. The associate direc-
tors of Housing each received in-
creases between 4.3 and 4.8 percent.
Hughes did not return phone calls
Hartford did not comment on
whether Hughes wanted to make the
"I told him, 'This is where I really
need you,"' Hartford said. "Bob is a
When asked what Hughes thought
of this new position, Hartford said, "I
think he might be a little nervous in
accepting this new challenge."
University Athletic Director Joe
Roberson, who was associate--vice
president for development last year,
said Hartford approached him about
securing an office one year ago.
"It was a short conversation. She
asked me if there was an office avail-
able in the development. I said there
was," Roberson said. He said Hughes
would fill that office and could not
recall a similar request, primarily be-
cause the Office of Student Affairs is
a non-academic credit department.
"It is more difficult for non-aca-
demic credit units to raise funds,"
Roberson said. He said he was pleased
that the office would be working with
the Campaign for Michigan and the
Office of Development.
The position was not posted in
The University Record, Hartford said,
because Hughes made a "lateral
move." The University Standards and
Practices Guide (SPG) requires all
positions to be posted.
This reassignment of a head ad-
ministrator is not uncommon. Jon
Cosovich, vice president for develop-
ment, became deputy to President
James Duderstadt on Dec. 1. Henry
Johnson, now senior consultant for
the Alumni Association, was trans-
ferred as well. Johnson was formerly
vice president for student services,
the precursor to Hartford's position.
Hughes' reappointment took some
staff members by surprise.
Archie Andrews, one of the three
associate directors in the Housing
Division, said, "I don't think there
was much tension between (Hughes)
and the staff. If there was some ten-

University students often dread a
visit to the Graduate library, with its
confusing call numbers, mysterious
floors and hidden stairways.
But students of the School of In-
formation and Library Studies (SILS)
make it their business to know their
way around the stacks. Students have
to know everything from how
MIRLYN works to designing a more
Mary Cary, adjunct lecturer and
director of admissions and student
services at the school, said SILS stu-
dents are taught to be information
"Students learn about information
resources, the production of informa-
tion, organization of information re-
sources and the economics of infor-
mation," Cary said. "Students can
specialize in areas such as law
librarianship, music librarianship and
Interest in the School of
Information and Library Science
has reportedly increased in the
last few years. Here are
wide variety of courses, many people
have misconceptions about the pro-
gram. SILS students, despite a popu-
lar belief, are required to know more
than the Dewey Decimal System back-
ward and forward.
Nicholas Scalera, a student in the
program, said the biggest misconcep-
tion people have about the school is
the notion that all of the students in
SILS want to be librarians.
"There are students that want to
go into business, the information in-
dustry and archives. The field of study
is very diverse," Scalera said.
Deborah Turner, a second year
masters student and vice president of
the Information and Library Studies
Association, said that there is a "si-
lence around librarianship and how it
integrates into society.".
Jackie Wrosch, also a student in
the masters program, agreed. "Many
people think that all we do is learn
how to check out books.
