Today is the last day to participate
in the Army ROTC Annual Thanks-
giving Turkey Shoot.
A turkey shoot is a marksmanship
competition that is open to all Univer-
sity students, faculty and staff. The
competition will be held today in the
*niversity Rifle Range, behind NUBS
Computing site near the bridge to the
ROTC cadets are running the event
under the guidance of their instructors
and University Rifle Coach Don
For $1, participants can fire four
shots at a target with a .22 caliber
Remington competition target rifle. Pro-
go to the Wolverine Battalion to
ay for special events and functions not
covered by the Army or the University.
Sgt. Ken Cook, a ROTC instruc-
tor, estimates 285 individuals have
already participated in the turkey
shoot, which started Tuesday.
Cook hopes that in addition to
raising funds for the cadets, the tur-
key shoot will raise campus aware-
ness of ROTC, and "get the message
out that ROTC is here."
Students may compete in teams or
as individuals, and prizes like Cottage
Inn pizza and Thanksgiving turkeys
will be awarded for top scores.
Current high scores belong to Yuki
Kuniyuki and Mike Carroll, both
Army ROTC Cadets, who are tied
with 34 of 40 possible points.
The University Rifle Range will
be open for turkey shooting from 11
a.m. to 5 p.m.

The bagel wars will begin on cam-

of West Bloomfield will be opening a

that used to house Drake's Sandwich
Shop, providing competition for The

Quality Dining Co. has established
three Bruegger's franchises in the
Detroit area, one of which is in Wood-
land Plaza on Anni Arbor-Saline Road.
The location on the northwestern
corner of the Diag is likely to be quite
profitable for Quality Dining CO.
Some students are eagerly awaiting
the grand opening.
"The idea of a bagel shop other
than the Bagel Factory on this campus
really excites me," said LSA sopho-
-more Tilney Marsh. "I think the lack
of competition has caused the Bagel
Factory to become complacent in its
role as essentially the sole bagel pro-
vider for the campus community.
"The last sandwich I had there was
a poor, mangled, disturbing thing and
the service left more than a bit to be
desired," Marsh said. "I wholeheart-
edly welcome this new bagel estab-
The Bagel Factory does not antici-
pate any drop in its business with the
opening of the new store.
"We've been here for 25 years.
We were the first bagel shop in the
Ann Arbor area," said Bagel Factory
Manager Tricia Kinley. "We're com-
fortable. We've become an established
fixture in the Ann Arbor community."
Kinley added, "We have genera-
tions of loyal customers. The fact that
we're not a franchise allows us to do
things that only independents can do.
"Our uniqueness is our big draw
and is what will keep people coming
back to the Bagel Factory."
According to the Ann Arbor
News, Paul Tibbals, son of deceased
Drake's owners Mildred and Truman
Tibbals, and his sister Eleanor ac-
cepted the offer of Quality Dining

LANSING (AP) - And you
thought college was tough.
Under a newly proposed set of'
requirements for Michigan schools
made public yesterday, children would
be expected to understand what they
learn, not just memorize facts.
The curriculum would cover math,
science, reading, history, geography,
economics, American government
and writing. Its goal is students who
can use what they've learned and keep
learning on their own.
"In other words, it is no longer
sufficient to simply 'know" mathemati-
cal facts: learners must be able to 'un-
derstand' the concepts behind them
and be able to apply them to problems
and situation in the real world." stated
a draft of the curriculum.
The new curriculum is required by
a 1993 state law. Local public schools
must begin using the curriculum by
the 1997-98 school year.
About 100 people yesterday at-
tended one of six public hearings on
the proposal, which still must be ap-
proved by the State Board of Educa-
tion and the Legislature's Adminis-
trative Rules Committee,
The Michigan Association of
School Boards initially opposed the
idea of a mandated core curriculum,
but lobbyist Tom White said that was
softened when members saw the final
"We did agree there ought to be a
specific body of knowledge that all
students in this state ought to have,"
The curriculum's general approach
allowed local school districts leeway
and means "we weren't all going to be
on the same page of the same book on
a given day," he said.
For example, under mathematics,
schools must provide a curriculum
"which will enable all students to under-
stand and use various types of operations
(e.g. addition, subtraction, multiplica-
tion, division) to solve problems."
But White said local districts still
worry how they will be-expected to show
they meet the curriculum requirements.
Some worried that the curriculum
sacrifices depth for breadth or stresses
students working together rather than
being taught directly by a teacher.
Kurt Dost of Haslett said he feared
the minimums spelled out in the
standards would become the maxi-
mums. Setting low expectations
does not encourage children to do
their best, he said.
A Howell social studies teacher
said the standards cram too much
into a few years.
John Meredith said American his-
tory and government are usually
taught to juniors and seniors who are
almost ready to vote, rather than first-
year students and sophomores for
whom issues such as political involve-
ment may be remote.
Eileen Lienhart of Jackson criti-
cized the curriculum for not covering
the fine arts and industrial arts.
"By leaving out the fine arts and
industrial arts from the required core
curriculum we run the risk of losing
them completely in future budget
crunches," she said.
