Wolbert said. "It's a good way for us to
remember Jeff by handing out a schol-
arship every year."
Michigan wrestler Corey Grant, who
participated in the car wash, said the
scholarship is a good way for members
of the University community to remem-
ber Reese.
"Jeff was my best friend. 1 felt it was
my place to come" to the car wash.
Grant said. "I'm a firm believer in
things happening for a reason."
Ann Arbor residents Jack and Eileen
Chisholm said they heard about the car
wash through members of the Michigan
women's field hockey team.
"They told us to comc today:' Jack

Chisholm said. "It's a great idea'
Other fundraising events for the
Reese scholarship will include a stu-
dent athlete Tshirt sale that will be held
Wednesday through Friday organized
by the Athletic Department. Printed on
the shirts, along with Reese's name and
(late of birth and death, is the slogan
"The Unbreakable chain of Family,
Friendship and Success Equals the
Michigan Wolverines."
"Everybody (in the Athletic
Department) has adopted that slogan as
a way of life," Fuqua said.
An auction will also be held
before the beginning of the
wrestling season next January, dur-
ing which athletic gear will be sold,
Fuqua said.
The SAAC will sponsor another car
wash next Sunday in the Yost Ice Arena

this year), but the tapes are definite-

the Naked Mile this year to anyone
wvho visits their Website and asks for
one. He said students upset that
tapes of the Naked Mile are sold
worldwide must realize the run's
importance transcends beyond Ann

Arbor's borders.
"I think we've always, as students,
sort of felt this is our campus, and
this is our thing," Steele said. "As
idealistic as this seems, it's far more
than that.
"If they give away 1,000,000 videos,
next year this place (on the night of the
Naked Mile) will be like football
Saturday," he said.
Steele said the videos are not
pornographic, but added that part of
their appeal is that females who run
the mile are not the same kind of

Steele said. "That's just a cut against

LSA senior Kelley Crutchfield said
she will run the mile in disguise
because she does not want her picture
on film or videotape.
Cameras "definitely make me
uncomfortable, Crutchfield said. "I 'm
going to wear a hat and sunglasses to
