ART

coffee or packs of cigarettes."
Later on, through connections with art shows and gal-
leries on the East Coast, Materson met his wife,
Melanie, who initially helped him display his works in
stores in Albany, N.Y.
Materson's work later turned from sports logos and classic
pieces to personal, autobiographical art depicting his life.
Materson said this approach is the heart of his artistry.
"A big part of my experience is about sharing the
story," he said. "You can see images of redemption in my
work."
Materson's work is currently displayed in Kerrytown's
Bruise Gallery. Joshua Moyer, the proprietor of the shop, ini-

tially got in touch with Materson through his ithher. who
taught Materson at Grand Valley State University.
Materson only recently began showing his pieces in Ann
Arbor. Previously, his work was featured mostly in New
York's Soho and other art hot spots.
The illness of Materson's mother brought him to the
Ann Arbor area, and when he learned of Mover's gallerv.
he decided to display his Rose Bowl piece, which he
says is appropriate given the Wolverine's recent success
on the football field.
"Ann Arbor is a really special place to me," Materson
said. "Ann Arbor is ... Ann Arbor. Hey, it's the cerebral
city -- it's the Berkeley of the Midwest."
The artist will not be traveling to Pasadena, but added
he would exchange a piece of his art for a plane ride and
a ticket to the game for both himself and his wife.

WARM-UPS
Continued from Page 1A
left his company few options.
"We know what navy and maize is
and it's important for us to get it right,
but we had an extraordinary situation
with that product," Morris said. "When
we recognized this problem, we imme-
diately offered substitute product ...
and immediately began reproductions
of the navy-and-maize warm-ups."
Although the new warm-ups will be
shipped to Ann Arbor next week, they
may not arrive in time to satisfy Michigan
men's swim coach Jon Urbanchek.
"If they can't give us maize and blue,
then we'll go with someone else,"
Urbanchek said. "There's other compa-
nies who would have them to us tomor-
row. We shouldn't be begging."
LSA junior David Stephens, a mem--
ber of the men's swim team, said the
damage of the blue-and-white warm-
ups has already been done.
"Everyone thought it was pretty lame
because our pictures in the media guide
are white and blue,"Stephens said.
Michigan women's swim coach Jim
Richardson said his team got the blue-
and-white warm-ups because they
aren't as visible as other varsity teams.
"We know where we sit on the totemi
pole," Richardson said. "Nike wants
football and basketball because they're
on TV Swimming is not on TV'
LSA senior Dwayne Fuqua, president
of the Student Athletic Advisory
Council, said Michigan athletes deserve
to be outfitted in maize and blue.
"It's not just a color to us - it's a
lifestyle," Fuqua said. "I think Nike
disrespected us. I think they just under-
mined the amount of respect that's
deserved by the maize and blue."
But Morris said Nike takes great pride
in its association with Michigan athletics.
"We recognize that many sports teams
at the University of Michigan have a
very rich tradition," Morris said. "We
respect that tradition and hope to contin-
ue by providing the very best in footwear
and apparel for Michigan teams."
Urbanchek said Nike promised to
outfit the men's swim team in maize
and blue after it sent the team blue-and-
white warm-ups four years ago.
"We didn't even specify the color, we
assumed it would be maize and blue
like they told us," Urbanchek said. "We
thought it was a mistake for sure."
Seyferth said that despite the mis-
take, the University is working to
develop its relationship with Nike.
"It's evolving, it's growing," Seyferth
said. "We're not where we want to be,
and they're not where they want to be."
Until Nike sends the teams the new
warm-ups, the athletes, coaches and
fans will continue to be thrown off by
the blue-and-white warm-ups.
Potts said the warm-ups will confuse
fans when swimmers stand on blocks to
receive awards. "People in the stands
would think 'Oh look, Penn State swept
one, two and three," Potts said.
"Michigan is a distinct color to any-
one, except for Nike," Urbanchek said.
"They must be colorblind."

GOP decries Reno's
approach to counsel
WASHINGTON - In an advance
attack, Republican leaders predicted
yesterday that Attorney General Janet
Reno would recommend against nam-
ing an independent counsel to investi-
gate President Clinton and Vice
President Al Gore and charged that she
would use a legal technicality to justify
that decision.
Reno met with top aides and leaders
of her campaign finance task force for
two and a half hours yesterday after-
noon at the Justice Department. Asked
as she left the building if she had made
any decision, she replied, "no com-
ment." But she added, "I'd look at
Tuesday," when asked when her deci-
sion might be disclosed.
Aides indicated that, as is her prac-
tice at pre-decision meetings, she asked
questions but didn't volunteer her bot-
tom-line thinking.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chair
Sen. Orrin Hatch said Reno could
"hide" behind narrow definitions of the

law, but that would not obscure the
greater need to investigate alleged
fund-raising violations by the White
House and the Democratic Party during
the 1996 presidential campaign.
Shoppers search f,
cheap retail prices
NEW YORK - Shoppers packed
the nation's stores and malls in the
first days of the holiday buying sea-
son, but many went straight for sale
racks and bought only when the
price was right.
Stores that offered deep discounts
and low prices fared best over
Thanksgiving weekend, retailers "d
yesterday.
"Christmas time is no different
than the rest of the year," said Kurt
Barnard, a retail consultant arid
president of Barnard's Retail Tren4
Report.
"Shoppers want to get more for
their money so they favor stores that
offer the best prices," Barnard
added.

U.S. toning down rhetoric on Iraq
WASHINGTON - Top U.S. and U.N. officials toned down their angry
rhetoric against Baghdad yesterday, speaking not of air strikes or Iraqi
"human shields" but of using diplomacy to resolve a dispute with Saddam
Hussein over weapons inspections and of easing hunger in Iraq.
As Iraqi demonstrators accused the West of starving Iraq's children, Ambass r
Bill Richardson, the U.S. envoy to the United Nations, and U.N. Secretary Ge I
Kofi Annan both voiced a willingness to improve the flow of food and medicine to
Baghdad as soon as this week.
The powerful U.S. force on patrol in the Gulf will remain as long as President
Clinton considers it necessary, Richardson said. But he also made it clear that the
U.S. priority is keeping the dispute on a diplomatic level, even if it means putting
up with temporary Iraqi obstructionism.
"We're not going to put any artificial deadlines," Richardson said on
NBC's "Meet the Press," when asked how long the United States would tol-
erate Saddam's refusal to fully comply with U.N. resolutions. "Our policy
has been steady, it's been measured ... we want diplomacy to work."
In a later appearance on CNN's "Late Edition" Richardson said that sh
the return of U.N. weapons inspectors to Iraq, "The situation has eased a lit-
tle."

Israel's Cabinet
approves withdrawal
JERUSALEM - Israel's Cabinet
voted yesterday to go forward with a
promised troop withdrawal from the
West Bank - but set no date and
made the pullout conditional on
Palestinians doing more to fight ter-
rorism.
Sixteen Cabinet ministers approved
the move, and two abstained. The minis-
ters made no decision about the extent of
the withdrawal.
Critics have said adding conditions
gives Islamic militants a chance to scut-
tle the pullout by staging attacks in Israel
- as they have done in the past, prompt-
ing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
to halt peace talks temporarily.
Still, Marwan Kanafani, a spokesper-
son for Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat,
was cautiously optimistic.
"It's encouraging to finally see the
Israeli government decide to abide by the
agreements that we spent a long time
with them to reach," he told The
Associated Press.
Kanafani said the Palestinians would

have to "wait and see" what kind of
conditions Israel attached to the with-
drawal.
U.S. global wanin
plan questioned
KYOTO, Japan - The chief sci-
entist responsible for alerting the
world to global warming said yes-
terday the Clinton administration's
intentions may be good but its ideas
for dealing with the threat fall short
of what's needed.
"The U.S. proposal is a positive s y
in the right direction but inadequate-
certainly in the long term, maybe even
in the short term," Bert Bolin said.
The Swedish climate scientist, in
an interview on the eve of final
negotiations for an international
accord to combat global warming,
also noted that British climatolo-
gists last week projected 1997 wll.
end up as the planet's warmest year
in more than a century of recd
keeping, outdoing 1995.
