Sigma Nu chapters
run for United Way

The fraternity brothers of Sigma
Nu know exactly how far it is from
East Lansing to the University.
This weekend, they will be mea-
suring the distance in dollars as they
participate in the 10th annual Michi-
gan State and Michigan Sigma Nu
The event, which always begins
he night before the football game, is
a tradition that benefits the United
Way of Washtenaw and Ingham coun-
David Baumann, vice president
of the University fraternity chapter,
said that the race was started to show
that the Greek system gives back to
the community by supporting various
philanthropies. This year, participants

The fraternities collected money
from various sponsors of the event.
This year, the five primary sponsors

Nu house at Michigan State, the vis-
iting team, in East Lansing. The two
fraternities will then run 77 miles to
the home team until they reach the
steps of the University's Sigma Nu
chapter. Baumann said that they ex-
pect to arrive around 9:30 a.m.
"There will be 150 runners from
both houses combined. A pair of run-
ners from each school will be on the
road at a time," said Baumann.
The other participants will drive
on the side of the road at about 6 to 7
mph. When one group of runners gets
tired, another group will get out of the
car or van and begin to run the next
few miles. Another van will stay in
front of the runners to keep them
motivated. The trip will continue like
this until they reach Ann Arbor.
On average, each participant will

One student, who wishes to re-
main anonymous because he was sell-
ing student tickets illegally, was sell-
,ng Penn State tickets for $100, but
vwould only sell them in pairs.
Eric, a LSA senior, is going to be
out of town for the Michigan State
and Penn State games. He and his
roommates joined forces to sell their
six tickets that would have been un-
used. The pair was able to make $300
by selling tickets in groups of three
Bryan Klemz, the assistant ticket
. tanager .of the athletic office, said
that his office does not enforce this
policy "other than having it on the
run 4 or 5 miles. Baumann said that
sometimes people will run up to 15
miles which helps to compensate for
a person who can only run 1 or 2.
This weekend will be the third
year that Baumann has participated in
the race. "I run to do my part. I tell
everyone that they should do their
part so that no person has to do too
much of the running. It is kind of
tough - especially when at four in
the morning, you realize that you are
only one-half of the way there," said
Every year the fraternity has com-
pleted the race without stopping.
Baumann said, "Everyone gets ex-
cited. It's a challenge to make the
whole run, and people have enough
drive to keep it going for 77 miles
For some Sigma Nu brothers, this
year will be their first time running
the race. Sean McEride, a junior who
is running for the first time, said, "I
am looking forward to it. I think that
it should be fun."
The race will be one of the first big
events for SigmaNu's recent pledges,
Baumann said. He added that the event
is a good opportunity for all of the
active brothers to meet the new mem-
Like Baumann, Engineering jun-
ior Jeff Gregory will also be running
for the third year, said, "It's a lot of
fun to run around all night long. It is
also fun to hang out in the vans with
everyone. It's a good time and a fun
way to raise money."
When the fraternities arrive at the
University tomorrow morning, they
will first rest and then go to Little
Following lunch, race participants
will run from the Union to the tunnel,
and then from the tunnel to the field of
the stadium. Before the game begins,
they will present the official game

of both schools will also be present.

ticket that it is not transferable or
available for resale."
The Department of Public Safety
is responsible forenforcing this policy.
But unless they actually see the tick-
ets changing hands, not much can be
done to prevent sales.
According to the Athletic Ticket
Office, more than 14,000 student tick-
ets were sold this year. Not every
person who buys a ticket will be able
to attend all games, so there are al-
ways student tickets up for sale.
LSA senior Tonya Bartow needed
tickets to any home game because her
younger sister and friends want to go.
Bartow posted signs in various dorms
and had no trouble getting tickets.
Bartow said, "Students can get
tickets for parents and friends if
they're smart about it."

Frustrated students, dismayed over
their out-of-state residency classifica-
tion, received some words of advice last
night from a legal expert - an attorney
who is suing the University on behalf of
former student Susan Eastman.
Neal Bush, an American Civil Lib-
erties Union lawyer, talked about the
University's residency requirements,
the current status of Eastman's case and
fielded questions from the audience.
The Rackham Student Government
(RSG) sponsored the event as a result of
several articles written in The Michi-
gan Daily, said Daniel Haver, an RSG
representative. "The reason why the
(RSG) president put this together was
tocreatea forum fordiscussion,"Haver
said. "As graduate students, residency
tends to be an important issue."
In August, a federal appeals court
ruled that public universities cannot
solely use the time students have lived
in a state to charge them higher tuition
rates. The decision stems from
Lacking in attendance was Elsa
Cole, the University legal counsel, who
declined to participate in the discus-
sion. She said she was unaware of the
event. "I don't expect we'll to take this
issue into a public debate setting. We'll
reserve our arguments probably for the
courts," Cole said.
During his presentation, Bush said
this case is the first somewhat success-
ful challenge to the University's resi-
dency rule. "I came to the University of
Michigan years ago. The gap in tuition
was a whole lot different then. There
was a lot more money in terms of schol-
arships and loans than there are now. So
obviously for all of you, it's a serious,
Also troubling is that rejections of
residency applications are vague in stat-
ing details about why an applicant is
denied. "When you get your letter back
saying that you've been refused, for the
most part, it doesn't tell you anything,"
The concept of fairness looms large in
students' minds. "One ofthe fundamental
concepts of the law is when you are deal-
ing with the government, the government
is supposed to tell you what the rules are,"
But students classified as out-of-
state need not despair. There are some
legal avenues to pursue.
"The economics of the situation are
that if you attempt to go to court and fight
it ... you are looking at a question of
spending more money on legal fees with
an unknown possibility of success," Bush
said. He recommended that students use
the Freedom of Information Act to try to
see their files for clarification.
"I don't have any ties anyplace else,"
saidJulie Fairbank, an "out-of-state"Rack-
ham student. "My parents have moved
three times since I lived with them. I was
told (by the University) I should many a

Last year's contest remains a bitter
recollection for the Wolverines.
"We've got to get back on the win-
ning track against them," Michigan of-
fensive lineman Joe Marinaro said.
"Everybody, personally, can play a lot
better this year than they did last year
because no one played well. I'd expect
a different result."
The Wolverines generated a paltry
33 yards rushing in Spartan Stadium
(245 yards of total offense). However,
Michigan State's run defense has not
posted numbers close to that in 1994.
The Spartans, under new defensive
coordinator Hank Bullough, are allow-
ing almost 208 yards per game on the
ground. But they deflate their oppo-
nents' air attack, giving up a meager
91.4 yards per game.
"Hank should get a lot of credit for
bringing the defense along so quickly,"
Perles said. "We've doubled the num-
ber of turnovers this year from what it
was after four games a year ago (from
six to 12)."
They've also changed quarterbacks
- from the graduated Jim Miller to
junior transfer Tony Banks, who- was
recently named conference offensive
player of the week for his performance
against the Badgers.
While he owns a fine throwing arm
and runs well out of the pocket, Banks
knows what Michigan State needs todo
in order to win.
"Our main thing, like every other
game, is we want to establish the run,"
Banks said. "It makes things a lot easier
for me if we're running the ball well."
Most of the Spartans' running bur-
den falls upon Duane Goulbourne, who
is averaging 87.7 yards per game. The
juniorrunning backpoweredand twisted
his way for a total of 145 yards running
and receiving in last year's battle.
"Goldie's got a style all his own,"
Perles said. "He's a fine running back.
He's got good quickness and speed.
He's a strong kid."
The Wolverines are stressing the run-,
ninggameas well andappearin fineshape
to do so, now that Tyrone Wheatley is
back in All-American form. The senior
tailback ran for 182 yards on 35 carries in
Michigan's 29-14 win over Iowa. And
that was behindamakeshift offensive line.
Michigan's front line is in better shape
than last week, with Jon Runyan returning
after sitting out one game with a sprained
ankle. However, Mike Sullivan is ques-
the HawkeyesandtightendJay Riemersma
remains a question mark after suffering a
thigh bruise in the Iowa game.
The Spartans have an injury problem
of their own and it is one vital to their
running attack. Tight end Bob Organ frac-
tured his lumbar vertebrae and is out 4-6
weeks. Organ, at 280 pounds, was the
smallest member of the Michigan State
offensive line, a group which averages
over 300 pounds.
The Spartans' line may be larger than
the game itself but it took a while to
become a cohesive unit, as did the Michi-
gan State offense.

Hall in New Orleans. It screened its first film in the summer of 1 B96.
