Nickels Arcade
shops report
* Using what Ann Arbor Police De-
partment reports describe as "blunt
bodily force," a burglar broke into the
basement area of Nickels Arcade Fri-
day and took items valued at $1,600
from businesses there.
The burglar gained entry to the
boiler room area of the Arcade on State
Street by kicking in a locked door.
Once in the basement area, which has
*separate entrances to storage facilities
And stores, the burglar bashed in sev-
eral doors and ransacked rooms.
Several entry doors were forced
open, according to AAPD reports,
and property, including a CD player,
bicycle and $100 in cash, was stolen.
Police have no suspects and an
investigation is pending.
*Victim robbed in car
A man jumped into the passenger
seat of a truck as it slowed to a stop at
the intersection of Maple and Scio
Church roads Friday, and then pro-
ceeded to put a semi-automatic gun to
tie victim's head.
According to AAPD reports, the
suspect demanded money from the
victim and then forced the victim to
*bash a check at Great Lakes Bancorp.
The suspect then demanded to be
driven to a nearby alley and then hit
the victim on the head with his gun
and fled on foot.
Fight involves racial
slurs at CCRB
Following a basketball game on
the Central Campus Recreation Build-
ing courts Friday night, a. University
student told the losers of the game "to
get their white asses off the court,"
according to Department of Public
Safety reports.
The suspect allegedly continued to
yell and said that "he would fucking
kick their ass."
A manager at the CCRB then
* stepped in between the student who
was yelling and two other students,
DPS reports state. After he was asked
for identification, the suspect allegedly
attempted to attack the other two stu-
dents, but his friends held him back. No
one was assaulted and officers escorted
all the students involved from the gym.
*Woman surprises
burglar at home
Arriving home at 2:30 Friday af-
ternoon, the owner of a house on the
2300 block of Parkwood Avenue on
the city's southeast side spotted a
man leaving from her back door.
The suspect then ran through her
backyard and dropped a large duffle
bag and other items, according to
AAPD reports.
Police determined that the suspect
entered the home by kicking in the
front door. The house was ransacked

and the suspect had tried to steal a
VCR and various CDs, but dropped
them in the backyard upon escaping.
A police tracking dog was brought to
the scene but lost the trail.
AAPD reports also state that the
suspect went through the victim's mail
looking for money and that the sus-
pect "urinated and defecated in the

Are you looking for personal attention from quality
instructors? With only 650 students, the Kinesiology Divi-
sion is often overlooked.
"Kinesiology sends students in three different career
paths: physical education, sports management and commu-
nication, and movement science. Students in movement
science (include) pre-med, pre-physical therapy, and pre-
occupational therapy," said Prof. Pat Van Volkinburg.
Although many people think of the division as just
producing physical education teachers, "80 percent (of the
enrolled students) are in SMC and movement science com-
bined," said Harry McLaughlin, director of academic ser-
vices in Kinesiology.
First-year student Leigh Bateman said she wants to be a
pediatrician. "I'm interested in body movement and physi-
ology. (Being in Kinesiology is) a help when you're in
medical school, because you already know the basics of
anatomy. in addition to regular science classes."-
Jodi Weiss, a Kinesiology senior, said, "Teachers in
Kinesiology are far superior to (other departments'). They
know how to deliver a clear lecture. They're always there."
Weiss said he found it "refreshing to see after three years
with the math department."
Michigan football player Joe Ries,.a Kinesiology sopho-
more, said he wants to be a high school coach. "(The
division) offers insight in how to deal with kids. It gives you
lots of experience for your resume."
The size of the department is a positive aspect for many
students. Dana Kushner, a Kinesiology senior, enrolled in
the SMC program to study sports law, but now is looking to
studies in nutrition and public health.
"I love the department. Because it is small, you get
individual attention. In or out of class, professors are willing
to talk to you," Kushner said.
Weiss found that professors in Kinesiology "were not
only concerned with research, they actually care about their
undergraduate students."
In addition to science courses, the Kinesiology division
"gives (students) a strong business background," Kushner
Kinesiology students use the CCRB more than other
students, since their classes are often there, Van Volkinburg
said. "Since they have an interest (in movement science),
they probably are healthier than most."
Archer says 'really
hard work begins'.
DETROIT (AP) - Proclaiming new jobs the "sin&
most important issue" for Detroit as he laid out his vision for
the coming year, Mayor Dennis Archer yesterday urged
Gov. John Engler to bring casino gambling to the city.
"The really hard work begins," he said last night as he
gave his first State of the City address.
In office just 13 months, Archer's 25-minute speech was
laced with realistic assessments of the city's failures and
challenges. It was delivered before the City Council and
hundreds of community leaders and administration officials.
Archer, 53, called the first year of his term "mostly a year of
assessment, team building, finding resources and getting started."
He introduced what could be his most crucial year in
office as "the year of turning the city around."
To do that, Archer proposed a restructuring of city
government built around the themes of increased safety,
improved city services, restored financial solvency and
business expansion. Archer said department heads, after a
mid-February conference, will have 60 days to present a
timetable for incorporating those goals.
Carl Greene, deputy director of the city's Housing De-
partment, said requiring such specifics would make a turn-
around for the city's struggling bureaucracy possible.
"The mayor has vision for this city and he has exhibited
dynamic leadership through this year," he said.

The number of college women who drink
abusively has risen dramatically during the
last 20 years, to the point where as many
women as men are drinking to get drunk,
according to a study conducted by the Center
on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Colum-
bia University.
The study found 35 percent of the college
women polled in 1993 said they drank to get
drunk, compared with only 10 percent in
1977. The report did not study the frequency
of such behavior.
"We must respond to this wake-up call. It
is a calling critical enough to engage us all,"
said Pamela Ann Rymer, a member of the 17-
person commission that produced the report.
The study also concluded that all colleges
should be forced to establish detailed policies
concerning alcohol use, offer prevention pro-
grams, and ban the advertising of alcohol in
campus publications and at college-sponsored
Education senior Konstandinos Katsiris
said he agrees with the findings of the study.
"Alcohol abuse, by guys and girls, is defi-
nitely a problem on this campus," Katsiris
said. "Whatever it may be, the administration
must do something to ensure students aren't
abusing alcohol as badly as they are."
However, other students at the University
have different opinions about the use and
policies regarding alcohol on campus.
Engineering sophomore Chris DeRonne
said he does not believe the administration
should take greater responsibility in address-
ing the issue.
"I don't think alcohol abuse is a real prob-
lem on this campus," DeRonne said. "If it

were addressed more seriously, I think we
would experience greater problems and more
rebelliousness by students."
LSA junior Genevieve Lemire thinks the
number of college women drinking to get
drunk are doing so for a specific reason.
"I feel most girls drink because it is part of
the social scene; it's what everyone does at the
bar or at a party," Lemire said. "Girls drink for
the same reason as guys do, and that's to get
Some college administrators around the
country said female students have enjoyed the
relaxed social standards of the last few de-
cades, according to the study. Furthermore,
the college women in the study said they drink
to relieve the pressure they feel to succeed and
to fit into campus life.
Joseph A. Califano Jr., chair and president
of the center said, "We're not experts in social
conduct, but I think it's the pressure to com-
pete, the tremendous sexual pressure and the
pressure to be a professional, a mother and a
The study also found that 90 percent of all
reported campus rapes occurred when either
the assailant or the victim were under the
influence of alcohol. In addition, 60 percent of
college women with sexually transmitted dis-
eases, like herpes and AIDS, were drunk at the
time of infection.
"This isn't a question of students having a
few on Saturday night. It's about the violence
and the rape and the highway accidents and the
unplanned pregnancies and AIDS, all of which
are highly correlated with the use of alcohol,"
said Jeffery Merrill, vice president for polling
and research at the center.

Engler: Govs. favor welfare block grants

WASHINGTON (AP) - A strong
majority of governors favor reforming
the welfare system by giving states
block grants to administer the programs,
Gov. John Engler said yesterday.
However, the governors will fall
short of the three-quarter consensus
necessary to issue an official National
Governors' Association position on
welfare reform this week, Engler said
on the White House lawn after a meet-
ing of dozens of governors, President

Clinton and members of his staff.
Under the block grant approach,
states would have broad powers to de-
cide eligibility standards, set time lim-
its on benefits and set work require-
ments. Now, states have to apply for
federal waivers to implement these and
other welfare experiments.
Gov.JimEdgar(R-Ill.) said Clinton
wanted any new welfare bill to do away
with the need for states to get waivers.
"The president did comment in the

discussion that he would hope that
whatever came out of the welfare re-
form, there wouldn't be a need for
waivers," Edgar said.
Engler went a step further, saying
he believed Congress would pass a bill
transferring to the states much of the
welfare program in block grants.
Clinton did not say he would veto such
a bill, Engler said.
Under the proposal by some Re-
publican governors and pushed by
Engler, welfare would be turned back
to the states by consolidating about 300
federal programs into eight block grants.
The governors also favor a "rainy
day" fund for natural disasters and other
state catastrophes that would require
extra grant money.
Engler said three of the grants to be
looked at first for legislation were cash
welfare, social services and child care.
The main cash welfare program,
Aid to Families with Dependent Chil-
dren, is a joint state-federal program
that costs states about $10 billion and
the federal government about $12.5
billion. About 14 million people re-
ceive the benefits, and two-thirds are
More than 30 programs are lumped
into the block grant for social services,
