Men's water polo scores big

The swimming and diving team is
not the only Michigan squad making
waves on the national scene.
The University's club water polo
team, with its 21-2 record, is the
favorite to repeat as national club
Water polo is physically bruising,
requiring strong swimming skills
and extraordinary stamina. Practices
take place from 8:30-10:30 p.m. five

nights per week, and competition for
a spot on the 'A' team is fierce, said
Engineering junior Arnot H eller,
team member.
More than 50 players usually
show up for mid-August tryouts,
with everyone guaranteed a place on
the team. Thirty players are usually
on the 'B' team, with 18 players
making the 'A' team. During a typi-
cal game, only 10 or I players will
see action, Heller said.
LSA senior Jeff Probst said join-

ing the water polo team is a great
way for incoming students to make a
big university more intimate.
"Wt's a great team, and a great way
to meet people" Probst said. "When
you travel in a car eight to 10 hours
each weekend, and practice every day
with the same people, they become
almost like a second family."
The club season consists of weekly
competition through mid-November..

Perhaps the men's crew team has not
received the publicity that varsity sports
have. Perhaps it has not received the
respect outside of the rowing communi-
ty that it deserves. Nevertheless, coach
Greg Hartsuff has done wonders for this
program in his six-year tenure. Hartsuff
has taken a team of 70 rowers and pro-
vided stability and continuity to a team
that is consistently improving.
"He has a vision of making us faster,
and has devotion," said varsity squad

senior Paul
DiLaura. Hartsuff "(Hartsu

Crew is a year-
round sport. The team has seven work-
outs per week, with emphasis on tech-
nique, endurance and speed. Workouts
are usually from 6:45 to 9:00 a.m.
Winters are usually spent in the gym
working on rowing machines, or "ergs,"
while many of the practices are held on
the water.
Much of the crew team's season
hinges on races held in April through the
end of May. The Big Ten Championships

in Indianapolis start things off in mid-
April, and later that same month is the
Midwest Sprints against Wisconsin.
Even though the bulk of the races are
in the spring, some team highlights have
already occurred. In the Head of the
Charles meet, the varsity boat finished
25th out of 43, a vast improvement from
its last performance in this race. The

. Music
V The music world was shocked last
Wednesday when R.E.M. drummer Bill
Berry announced he was quitting the
Athens, Ga., quartet after nearly two
decades of playing with the group. Berry
told Addicted to Noise, "I loved my 17
years with R.E.M., but I'm ready to
reflect, assess and move on to a different
phase of my life." Berry nearly died
when he suffered a brain aneurysm dur-
ing the band's 1995 world tour for its
late-1994 album, "Monster," so he'll
likely enjoy spending time with his fam-
ily on his farm in rural Georgia. The
group plans to go on, however, albeit
without a full-time replacement skins-
man. Bassist Mike Mills said, "We're
not going to replace Bill and we're not
looking for any other drummers. When
we get in the studio and we need a drum-
mer, we'll hire somebody for that instru-
ment only."
V Jane's Addiction, which played in
Detroit Wednesday night, had a surprise
opening band in Chicago's Aragon
Ballroom Monday night - the
Smashing Pumpkins. Lead singer/
guitarist Billy Corgan "was decked out
in a long licorice-red wig, day-glo lip-
stick and a black and red, full-length
velvet dress," reports ATN. "We played
our first show here back in '88 with
Jane's,'said Corgan, whose group
took a break from recording its
new album to play six songs
from its last one,
"Mellon Collie and the
Infinite Sadness." Ticket
prices skyrocketed to $300, 10
times the face value, once word
spread that the Pumpkins were to be

/ Burt Reynolds, who is
enjoying the best reviews of his
career for his performance as a
pornographic filmmaker in
"Boogie Nights," reportedly fired
his agents after screening the final
version of Paul Thomas Anderson's

Entertainment Weekly. It was

V An auction of the possessions of
late screen actress Marlene Dietrich,
one of the original movie sex symbols,
fetched more than half a million dollars
at Sotheby's in Los Angeles last week.
Although Dietrich died more than five
years ago at age 90, she has remained
ingrained in the minds of film fans
everywhere, as evidenced by the large
turnout at the standing-room-only event
that even drew a few celebrities. Items in
the $659,000 sale included an 1874 oil
painting by French master Jean Baptiste
Camille Corot, two letters written by
Ernest Hemingway (which were pur-
chased by actress Jennifer Tilly) and an
"E.T." movie poster signed by Steven
Spielberg, reading: "To Marlene, They
don't make them like you anymore from
an adoring fan, Steven Spielberg," which
earned $2,530.
V Perhaps he thought he was just act-
ing in one of his own movies. Filmmaker
Quentin Tarantino was involved in a
ruckus with Don Murphy, the producer
of "Natural Born Killers" (for which
Tarantino wrote the original story),
at a trendy L.A. restaurant last
month. Apparently upset over
his portrayal in Murphy's
book "Killer Instinct," the
"Pulp Fiction" director
was detained but not
arrested by police. His
latest picture, "Jackie
Brown," is scheduled
for release later this

follows: Number of
Jenny's uncles who

6. Number of her

her to hell for pos-

times she went to church as a child au

her underwear): 2. Number of times
she's been in bed with a guy - and
urinated in it: 1. Time since her
last confession: 13 years (sur-
prised?). Cost of her barely

$1,500 - a mere 100 times
the price of one of her
Playboy videos.
