Coinciding with University President
Lee Bollinger's inauguration tomorrow,
the University will officially kick off
the beginning of the Year of Humanities
and Arts.
Sponsored by the Office of the Vice
President for Research, YoHA is a loose
coalition, with goals that include cele-
brating scholarship, performance and
creativity in the arts, as well as joining
together the University and the Ann
Arbor community through arts and
humanities.
"Really the whole point of YoHA is
to give us an excuse to start a whole
bunch of experiments in an integrated
fashion," said Associate Vice President
for Research Julie Ellison.
YoHA will hold a symposium tomor-
row from 3-5 p.m. in the Rackham
Auditorium to introduce a variety of
projects.
Among them is "The Arts of
Citizenship"-- a program co-chaired
by symposium speaker and Ann
Arbor Mayor Ingrid Sheldon that will
present a lecture series on public cul-
ture and design. The project also will
organize a team to help reconstruct
Ann Arbor's Broadway Bridge, which
Sheldon said is "literally decompos-
ing in front of our eyes."
"Arts and humanities are not just
restricted to the University, and need to
be applied to the whole community,"
said Sheldon, adding that the initiative
will collaborate with Mack Elementary
and Community High schools.
Although its official kickoff is
tomorrow, YoHA is already underway.

Earlier this month, YoHA put on "Yo-
Renaissance," a graduate student-led
discussion among first-year students
that discussed the arts and humani-
ties.
Courses such as "Political and
Advertising Discourse," a 300-level
class crosslisted between the linguis-
tics, political science and communi-
cations departments, is also a product
of YoHA.
YoHA also has made mini-grants
available to faculty members whZ
incorporate arts and humanities Intl)
their courses.
"It's a first," said LSA senior Prter
Mehta, who served on YoH A's planniig
committee this summer. "It's something
that I've not heard of at other univc.N-
ties:
Mehta said YoHA also is word
with the University Music Societyt
get half-price student discounts on oi-
cert tickets.
Tommorrow's symposium will fea-
ture videos, multi-media performanns
and various presentations from facutiy
and representatives of the community.'
Guests in attendance, will have
opportunity to sign a unique guest bobs
designed by landscape architect Id
Ramsey specifically for Bollingers
inauguration. The symposium is free
and open to students and the gene4l
public.
Coordinator for Research aid

"Yo-Lee" balloons and YoHA yo-y s.,
will be handed out at the event.
"It'll provide the students with"a
small taste of what YoHA has to off4f'
Katterman said.

For the Daily
With much fanfare last week, a new entry stepped into
the battle for students' pizza-buying buck.
The new Domino's Pizza, located on the corner of William
and State Streets, is hoping to attract hungry students in
search of a snack between classes, at dinnertime, or late at
night.
"The prices are affordable for college students. Everyone
wants a slice of pizza between classes and late at night,"
said Engineering sophomore Alicia Knowles, praising the
establishment's $1 pizza slices.
Last week, -Domino's sponsored daily events and specials
to celebrate the opening of their newest store.
The grand opening began with a ribbon-cutting ceremo-
ny attended by Ann Arbor Mayor Ingrid Sheldon.
"I'm very happy to see such a popular and thriving fran-
chise located in that particular site," Sheldon said. "That
site hasn't been able to maintain businesses, which may
have discouraged other businesses. But something that is
active will inaugurate that corner."
Festivities continued Tuesday, Sept. 9, with Detroit Pistons
forward Jerome Williams signing autographs. The store ended
the week with a grand opening party on Friday. Ann Arbor radio
station WIQB broadcasted outside the establishment. Also dur-
ing the events on Friday, Domino's gave away a computer from
Computer Renaissance to Andrew Kamai, an Engineering
senior.
"I've been very impressed with their efforts to attract the

student population. They've successfully acclimated into
the student population and I think it will be successful.
They did it right," Kamai said,
Throughout the week of festivities, students were able to
get free Domino's Pizza message boards, and magnets and
specials on pizza and soft drink combinations.
The new Domino's Pizza's move from Ann St. to State St.
has so far proven to be a success for both the restaurant and
for University students, said store manager Hamed Saghah.
"The move to the heart of the campus was very well cal-
culated," Saghah said. "Business has tremendously picked
up with the slice for $1 deal.'
Saghah says Domino's is restructuring its image to reach
out to students. But the new pizza-by-the-slice restaurant
may not be good news for everyone on campus.
The Backroom, located at 605 Church St., has been a tra-
ditional pizza slice mecca for hungry students.
"We haven't noticed anything. There hasn't been any differ-
ence in business," said Robert Carnes, acting manager and stu-
dent at Washtenaw Community College.
"I had Domino's quite a bit last year, but Backroom is
better. It's my favorite pizza in the area:' said LSA sopho-
more William Brody.
Now that the doors have opened, it is up to students to
decide if the new Domino's will be a hit in the already
crowded world of pizza on campus.
"Each university has its own culture. (The) University of
Michigan is pretty unique. We would like to be a part of the
University, if you will give us a chance," Saghah said.

New city ordinances crack down
on under age drinking, buying

A1!

By Stephanie Hepbum
Daily Staff Reporter
Under new ordinances, intoxicated
students wandering around campus
could be required by a police officer to
take a breath analysis test if the officer
believes the student is under 21 years of
age and has consumed alcohol.
If a minor is found to have .02 blood-
alcohol content, then they are considered
to be possessing alcohol, even if the per-
son is not carrying any alcohol contain-
ers. If a person is convicted of buying
alcohol for a minor, they can face up to
60 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
LSA first-year student Jason Emott
said police should not go after students
unless they exhibit intoxicated behavior.
"More people are getting checked,"
Emott said. "Students shouldn't get
checked unless they are blatantly puking,
not if they are just walking around. If the
student is acting responsibly the police
shouldn't hinder you because you're not
causing a problem or blatantly breaking
the law."
The changes are the result of a
local ordinance enacted after the
Liquor Control Commission Act
went into effect statewide in July.
Ann Arbor recently altered its city
laws in order to comply with new
state standards.
Minors caught participating in under-
age drinking prior to the new ordinance
faced a $100 fine, categorized as a civil
infraction similar to a traffic violation.
Now, the consequence of being caught
in underage consumption results in pos-
sible jail time and a misdemeanor. A

misdemeanor is a legal violation and will
remain on the subject's criminal record if
found guilty.
Doug Lewis, director of Student Legal
Services, said he fears students will
think the misdemeanor is merely a fine,
and not realize that they now have a
criminal record.
He said the new laws make penalies
"much more serious."
"There is a nationwide crackdown
against underage alcohol consumption,"
Lewis said.
Lewis said students should be aware
that pleading guilty and paying a fine for
the offense will not erase the incident
from their criminal record. "I just don't
want them to walk in and plead guilty
and not realize the consequence,"Lewis
said.
Sgt. Larry Jerue, spokesperson for the
Ann Arbor Police Department, said alco-
hol has become a common denominator
in incidents including assault and bat-
tery, disorderly behavior and rape.
"Most combatants have been involved
in alcohol consumption," Jerue said. "If
alcohol was not present in those same
people, they probably would have never
acted in such an aggressive manner."
Alice Greene, an official at the
Northside Community Policing Office
in Ann Arbor, said the consequence of
buying alcohol for a minor can be much
stronger if the minor is harmed by alco-
hol.
"If the alcohol that you bought for
your underage friend is the direct or sub-
stantial cause of death or injury of your
friend you, the furnisher, is held respon-

sible by Michigan law," Greene said.
Jerue said the AAPD is taking a
proactive stance against alcohol
abuse in efforts to decrease future
problems.
"That is how we are trying to circum-
vent any problems down the line," Jerue
said.
