Eight weeks of overachievement,
developing a cutthroat defense and
churning out one victory after another,
come down to one game that will prove
whether this Michigan team is all it's
cracked up to be.
Sure, the Wolverines have stared
down a dominant offense like Iowa's,
they have had their emotional capaci-
ties tested against Michigan State,
Colorado and Notre Dame, and they
have battled a tough crowd on the road
in Last Lansing.
But now, No. 4 Michigan (5-0 Big
Ten, 8-0 overall) has all three of those
evil winds blowing its way in the form
of No. 2 Penn State (4-0, 7-0).
Saturday's 3:30 p.m. blockbuster tilt at
Happy Valley's Beaver Stadium will be
the first time since 1975 that two unde-
fBated Big Ten teams have squared off
in the month of November.
Ironically, Michigan was part of that
game as well. Top-ranked Ohio State
knocked 'off the fourth-ranked
Wolverines in Ann Arbor, 21-14, in the
final game of the season for both teams.
"This is a big game for Michigan
football," said Michigan coach Lloyd
Carr. "What is nice is we don't have to
worry about looking past anyone. This
is the best football team we have played

Heroin is not chic
By Alice Robinson
Daily Staff Reporter
LSA junior Mike Bito said his impression is
that it is a "dirty, kind of disgusting habit."
Engineering senior Corneil Paauwe said that
from what he's heard, "It's something you don't
want to mess with."
Heroin and its images may be surfacing in
many places, but, not on college campuses.
Despite images of pale, sickly models
appearing on the pages of trend-setting fash-
ion magazines and frequent references in
movies and pop culture, the "heroin chic"
trend hasn't found a home at the University.
Department of Public Safety spokesperson
Elizabeth Hall said that the last three years
have been free of heroin arrests on campus.
"The only report of heroin (in the last three
years) was made in 1997 for possession of
heroin paraphernalia," Hall said.
The Livingston and Washtenaw
Narcotics Enforcement Team, which han-
dles all narcotics cases for Washtenaw,
Jackson and Livingston counties, arrested
19 people for offenses related to heroin
possession in the past six months.
Heroin use has increased overall across the
nation in the past seven years, according to
David Osborn, a spokesperson for Phoenix
H-louse, a New York-based substance abuse ser-
vice organization that has helped 70,000 people
overcome addictions since its initiation in 1967.
"Use of the drug has really been on the
upswing since 1990," Osborn said. "There is
something around now called 'heroin chic,' as
if it's become a chic drug," he said.
LSA first-year student Marisa Kelley said
she has seen "the whole heroin chic" image in
women's magazines, and does not think the
photographs are appealing.
One student said the drug's popularity is rein-
forced by messages people get from television.
"(It is) probably easy to get, even though I
haven't really heard of it (on campus)," said LSA
sophomore Karren Benedict, adding that televi-
sion often portrays the drug as "popular and in
Deborah Kraus, a clinical psychologist with
the University's Counseling and Psychological
Services office in the Michigan Union, said hero-
in makes users feel like they are in sort of a dream
world. "The reason that heroin is so addictive is

that it feels like there's some kind of fuzzy buffer
to people ---- in their world," she said.
But Kraus said at the same time that users are
insulated from negative incidents around them,
they are also isolated from good feelings. She
said users are always looking for a high that will
satisfy them as much as their first one did.
"What heroin addicts have told me through
the years is that they're always chasing that
first high," she said.
Heroin is also known to users as smack,
horse, H or junk. Some side effects of using
heroin, besides addiction, include dry, itchy
skin, nausea and vomiting, reduced sex drive,
scarring along veins where heroin has been
injected and a greater risk of AIDS from

WSU bans non-university e-mail use
By Chris Metinko
Daily Staff Reporter
Wayne State University President David
Adamany banned using the university's e-mail
system for non-university related business,
causing anger among the school's faculty and
"The policy that Adamany is presenting is
really ill-conceived and mean-spirited." said
Nys released a statement yesterday outlining
the reasons. First, Wayne State wants to avoid
university e-mails that can be subject to the
Freedom of Information Act.
Also, Wayne State administrators claim
using e-mail unrelated to the university is irre-
sponsible because the system is funded by tax-
payers. Finally, officials want to avoid wasting
technological resources on activity unrelated to
"The policy put together here is a very
oppressive policy," said Wolfson, a Wayne
State professor of computer science.
Bill Stein, another Academic Senate mem-
ber, agreed that the policy is too conservative.
"The policy governing usage that is con-
tained in the executive order is very restric-
tive," said Stein, a professor of philosophy at
