No decision on
Baker 's appeal
A panel of 6th Circuit Courtjudges
has yet to rule on LSA sophomore
Jake Baker's bond appeal as Baker
remains in what his mother calls "the
hole" at the Milan Federal Correc-
The appeal has been under review
for more than a week, but Baker's
lawyer said there is nothing unusual
about the process.
"We expected to hear a decision
last week, but there are no rules for a
* proceeding like this," said Douglas
Mullkoff, Baker's attorney. "We are
awaiting the decision and hope that
he is released."
U.S. Attorney Ken Chadwell and
Mullkoff will meet in Detroit today
for a scheduling hearing before Fed-
eral Judge Avern Cohn at 4 p.m. The
trial is currently slated to start Mon-
day, April 3.
Mullkoff said yesterday that "a

The University's Office of Devel-

along with a "duck pond," to promote
Senior Pledge Day, which kicks off the
annual Senior Pledge Program.
"It was the most fun I've had in
months," LSA senior Matthew
Messana said as he exited the
Moonwalk. "I think this is a better way
of drawing attention to (the program)
than getting a letter in the mail."

It's exciting and visible."
Last year, the program generated
approximately $32,000. This year, the
committee aims to raise $35,000. Pro-
gram volunteers have already begun
to call seniors for pledges, and thus
far have a 48-percent pledge rate
"which is fabulous," Jordan said.
When a senior donates to the an-
nual fund, the money goes to the
student's college or division and helps
support scholarships, computing cen-
ters, guest lecturers, laboratory and
classroom equipment, student research,
and study-abroad programs.-
The day's events captured the fancy
of LSA first-year student Josh Kaplan.
He said the festivities "get people in a
good mood. It makes people happy
and they'll contribute more."
In addition to seniors, the program

said Engineering senior Tim Hibbard,

Jordan was pleased with the stu-
dent response. "I think it's been very
successful. We've had a lot of stu-
dents asking questions," she said. Such
interest supports the program's greater
objective beyond monetary contribu-
tions. "Our biggest goal is that stu-
dents will realize that after they leave
the University of Michigan, they still
have a connection to the University as
alumni that lasts throughout their life-
time," Jordan said.

Free bagels attract
hundreds to shop
By Jennifer Harvey
Daily Staff Reporter
With the opening of Bruegger's
Bagel Bakery, there are now bagel
stores to the north and south of the
Diag allowing students to get their fill
of round delights.
Michael Kruczek, aBruegger's shift
supervisor, said the North University
Avenue eatery's first week has been
"Before we opened we were con-
cerned whether we would be busy or
not, with all the other restaurants in the
area. People have been standing in line
outside the door. Now we expect to be
busy," Kruczek said. I
"Whether that means we're the best
thing since sliced bread or not, I don't
know," he said.
"I'm downright excited about
Bruegger's presence on the Ann Arbor
bagel scene," said LSA sophomore
Tilney Marsh. "Compared to the Bagel
Factory, Bruegger's is a definite thumbs-
up. The staff is friendly, energetic and
helpful, and it's high time that the Bagel
Factory got a kick in the pants."
Not every student has headed to
Bruegger's for their bagel fix.
"Our customers have been very
loyal," said Katie Dersnah, a manager
of the Bagel Factory on South Uni-
"We always have coupons out.
We're part of the pilot program for
Mcard. With that and the quality of our
business we'll be right in the competi-
tion," she said.
Dersnah said the Bagel Factory was
as busy as always over the past week-
end. "Some customers commented that
they were surprised we were so busy
with the other place being newly
opened," she said.
Breugger's Kruczek said even
though his restaurant seats 100, there
are still people who cannot find a seat
during certain times of the day. He
said additional seating will available
outside Bruegger's in the spring.
"Unfortunately we're not staffed
to deal with these massive amounts of
people. We currently have about half
the staff we need," Kruczek said.
"We're very thankful for
everybody's patience," he said.
Kruczek credited the overwhelm-
ing success of Bruegger's first week in
town to a variety of factors.
"We have a relaxed atmosphere
and a good product variety, as far as
what you can get on it or with it. Our
customers can listen to music and sit
in here for as long as they want. Our
service is very personalized. We want
to get to know everybody too."
Kruczek said that customers have
been very receptive to the coupons
circulated last week. He said people
who came in with the coupons have
been coming back consistently.
"We're looking to satisfy every-
body 110 percent," he said.
"We're also in a superb spot,"
The most frequent question cus-
tomers have asked Bruegger's manag-
ers regards old Drake's Sandwich
Shop paraphernalia. The Bruegger's
location was the site of the former
Drake's restaurant. The original de-
cor plan for Bruegger's was to in-
clude various items from Drake's.
"Unfortunately, the Health Depart-
ment banned everything from Drake's
old restaurant," Kruczek said.
To compensate for the lack of Drake's
materials available, Bruegger's has put
up a series of photographs ofhistoric Ann
Arbor, including one of Drake's.
"We want to show how Ann Arbor
has progressed. Every little business
has a part of how Ann Arbor has
grown," Kruczek said.
to tri $81m
from state aid
LANSING (AP) - Local govern-
ment leaders are criticizing Gov. John
Engler's plan to cut $81 million from
state aid to local governments.
"We don't know what the state
does, but people look to cities for the
real services: to see a park or library,
a street taken care of, a police car or
fire truck," said Sterling Heights City
Manager Steve Duchane.
