written five books, including "Angela Davis:
An Autobiography" and "Women, Race and
Class."
"I think that she touches on a lot of issues
that are relevant in today's society concerning
women," LSA junior Kennetha Clark said.
Davis said the blues provided strength and
inspiration to black women.
"They all sing about women who are power-
ful, who are independent, who make decisions
about their own lives.... It's important for us to
recognize that there are multiple sources of
black feminism," she said.

Many audience members traveled from as
far as Detroit last night to hear Davis speak,
filling the East Hall Auditorium beyond its
capacity.
Davis is active in the movement to abolish
prisons. She spoke about the current expansion
of the prison industry and the need to re-evalu-
ate society's treatment of prisoners as well as
examine the amount of money spent on the
welfare system.
"The word prison is mentioned, and fear
begins to take over," Davis said. "I think we
need a new movement; I think we need a new
radical movement."
Davis also stressed the importance of recog-
nizing the "connection between doing the his-

torical research and the kind of political chal-
lenges that face us today."
Audience members said they were
impressed by Davis' presentation.
"I was very enlightened by her speech ... As
a speaker, she's phenomenal. The thing is, she
can touch a lot of people," said Kermit Harris,
a senior at Eastern Michigan University. Harris
said that although he did not agree with Davis'
views on the prison system, "she's a constantly
thinking woman."
Davis' speech was sponsored by Shaman
Drum Bookshop and the Center for
Afroamerican and African Studies. Her speech
was followed by a Q&A period and a book
signing.

NCAA senior assistant
'rector of champi- M
ships, said the facelift
Yost received made it a
suitable site when competing against such loca-
tions as the University of Wisconsin's Dane
County Coliseum and Michigan State University's
Munn Arena.
"The enhancement and the remodeling of Yost
Arena have really made it possible to bring the
event to the Michigan campus," Buttafuoco said.
The renovations, which cost about $5.5 million,
lude a new press box and scoreboards, as well
remodeled offices and team lockerrooms.
Financing the Tournament
Despite the many opportunities that hosting the
tournament provides, it does not give the
University an opportunity for tremendous profits.
"It's an NCAA event," said Athletic Department
Director of Licensing Paul Schager. "Basically, we're
just doing all the arrangements to put on the event."
Buttafuoco said the NCAA will use the ticket-
sale money remaining after expenses to finance
er aspects of the tournament, including televi-
sion exposure and transportation for all of the
teams competing in the tournament. But the
University will receive 15 percent of the addition-
al revenue, Buttafuoco said.
Long said the Athletic Department allocated
$48,000 for expenses, which range from paying
personnel and covering custodial fees to printing
tickets and acquiring equipment.
All University expenses will be covered by the
le of tickets, which is estimated to bring in
90,000, Long said. Yost seats more than 6,000
people, but about 1,500 seats were directly set
aside by the NCAA, leaving the University with
about 4,500 seats to sell.
Buttafuoco said any additional NCAA profits
"from its tournaments are dispersed annually
among all Division I schools.

- Red Berenson Steakhouse and The
lichigan hockey coach Original Cottage Inn
restaurant will host
receptions organized by
the University, Schager said.
The Future
In the near future, Buttafuoco said, the West
Regional will be held almost entirely on college
campuses, although he would like to see it moved
to more outside sites.
But there are few such sites in the West region that
are the right size for hosting the tournament. "The
college atmosphere is excellent, and I think it will be
this weekend," Buttafuoco said. But "our No. I
choice is to provide a neutral facility for all the
teams.'
Buttafuoco said he liked having the West
Regional at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids last
year because it did not allow one team to have a
home advantage.
Berenson said that although one team may have
a home advantage, there are still benefits to hold-
ing the West Regional on a college campus.
"I think its good for their fans to get a sense
of the NCAA - just the flavor of it - and I
think it's a good experience for the players
coming in to come to another school and get a
feel of what its like there, but I don't think it's
fair."
But Berenson said that until a decision is made
to only use off-campus sites for the West Regional,
the University should be regarded as viable site.
"If they're going to have it at Michigan State
and Wisconsin, shouldn't they have it at
Michigan?" Berenson asked. "I just felt that if you
were going to have it on campus sites, then
Michigan should be one of them.
"Michigan's one of the premier programs, so we
should have a West Regional," he said.

LAWSUIT
Continued from Page 1
University Law students. All of the
high school and undergraduate stu-
dents plan to apply to the Law
School,
"I don't think we could have a
more representative and diverse
group," said Shanta Driver, the
group's main coordinator.
Many of the group's student mem-
bers said the intervening party
should be diverse because the out-
come of the lawsuit could adversely
affect all students - not just minori-
ty students.
"You don't have to be a female
or a person of color to support
affirmative action," said Law first-
year student Norberto Salinas.
"That's what this intervention is
about."
The Center for Individual Rights
originally sued the Law School on
Dec. 3 on behalf of Barbara Grutter,
a white applicant who was denied
admission to the Law School for Fall

1995. Grutter claims she was not
admitted to the University, while
less-qualified minority students
received spots in the Law School.
Massie said members of the
intervening group are attempting
to remove the threat the lawsuit
places on them and all other stu-
dents.
"Plaintiff Barbara Grutter and
racist white people that think like she
does believe that there's a seat
reserved for them in the front of the
bus," Massie said. "The interveners
are here to say, 'there is no such
seat."'
Lisa Baker, associate vice presi-
dent for University relations, said she
could not comment on the group's
motion without studying it.
"We haven't seen the motion;
therefore, we can't comment on it,"
Baker said.
CIR Senior Legal Counsel Terry
Pell could not be reached for com-
ment.

Yachnin contributed to this report.

HOCKEY

games in nine nights and managed to win five
out of the six:'
Even though Michigan has played in the
NCAA tournament the past four seasons, this
year will be a different experience for the
Wolverines. Michigan is without its traditional
first-round bye for the first time since 1991,
when the NCAA adopted the current playoff
format.
"We're not the team we were last year,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said."Last year
at this time we had seven 20-goal scorers - we
have two on this team. We're not the run-and-

gun team that we would like to think we are.
"And we're not the favorite team in this tour-
nament. We're a bit of an underdog," he said.
In tonight's 5 p.m. game, the matchup
between the fifth-seeded Bulldogs (23-8-3)
and No. 4 Ohio State (25-12-2) features two
teams that weren't expected to make the
NCAA tournament.
Before the season, the Buckeyes were
picked by the coaches to finish eighth in the
CCHA, but on the momentum of a strong
second half of the season - closing 13-2-1
- Ohio State finished third in the CCHA
regular season standings, and was the run-
ner-up to Michigan State in the CCHA tour-
nament.

Meanwhile, the ECAC coaches picked Yale
to finish 10th in the 12-team ECAC.
But behind the play of Hobey Baker candi-
date Ray Giroux and goaltender Alex
Westlund, the Bulldogs captured their first-
ever ECAC title and the automatic bid to the
NCAA tournament that comes with it.
In tomorrow's early game, the winner of the
Ohio State-Yale contest will face off against
No. 1 Michigan State (33-5-5), which won
both the CCHA regular season and playoff
titles.
Tomorrow's late game will feature the win-
ner of the Michigan-Princeton game and
defending national champion No. 2 North
Dakota (30-7-1).
