After Saturday's on-ice celebration was over and most of
e players, coaches and media had left, Michigan forward
ill Muckalt leaned down and kissed the painted 'M' in the
enter of Yost Ice Arena.
In that one gesture, Muckalt illustrated what all the
olverines must have been feeling: There's no place like
"The crowd was awesome," Michigan coach Red
erenson said. "They were incredible. It would have been
mbarrassing for anyone not to give their best with this
wd and the environment here."
e home-ice advantage - coupled with determination
d hard work - lifted the Wolverines (32-11-1) from a two-
oal deficit to rally and upset defending champion North
akota (30-8-1), 4-3, in the NCAA West Regional finals.
A crowd of 6,544 witnessed the third-seeded Wolverines
core the final three goals of the game to dethrone the see-
nd-seeded Fighting Sioux in arguably the biggest game ever
layed at Yost. The victory propels the Wolverines into the

Two-year-old Trevor Cypress had the opportunity
to enter the dancing circle Friday night in the kick-
off of the Ann Arbor Pow Wow, while 10,000 spec-
tators looked on at Crisler Arena.
Cypress' entrance into the dance circle was his
introduction into the larger Native American com-
munity. His mother, LSA sophomore Melissa
Cypress, described her son's participation in the
grass dance as an "early rite of passage."
Melissa Cypress said her son has had a lot of
exposure to his Native American heritage, and
many of her family members traveled from Florida
to partake in the celebration.
The Ann Arbor Pow Wow began as a small gath-
ering in 1972 in a library in Angell Hall.
But 26 years later the event, hosted by the Native
American Student Association, has become one of
the most celebrated pow wows of the Native
American people. Many well-known dancers,
singers and artists graced the Ann Arbor scene dur-
ing the course of the weekend.
The Pow Wow also included dance contests,
which were broken down into six categories: tradi-
tional, fancy, grass dance, women's jingle dress and

Members of the University's lesbian,
gay, bisexual and transgender commu-
nity chalked sidewalks in the early
morning hours before National Coming
Out Week last semester, but the chalk-
ings were removed by University
groundskeepers the next day.
Last winter term, leaders of the gay
community said they believed members
of the campus chapter of the College
Republicans erased their Diag chalkings.
In response to this and other chalking
incidents, the University officially
amended its Policy for the Scheduled
Use of Outdoor Areas last week to state
that the University will not remove
chalkings on University sidewalks or
Mary Lou Antieu, assistant to the
vice president for student affairs, said
the community's reaction to the inci-
dent last winter caused administrators
to draft a formal, written chalking poli-
Under the former unofficial policy, if
someone called groundskeepers to say
they found chalkings "objectionable,"
groundskeepers would remove the
chalkings, she said. In addition, side-
walks used to be cleaned according to a
"Chalkings were being removed
because of the content of the chalking
and we found that we needed this to
change," Antieu said. "When a govern-
met unit removes a sin or chaking
political group will chalk more fre-
quently now that they know their mes-
sages will not be removed.
"I'm glad the University has finally
come to the realization that chalking
and postering are the same, and they
can't abridge our First Amendment
rights," Kirk said.
Queer Unity Project planning team
member Amanda Miller said she is
"surprised" and "elated" by the policy
She said the removal of chalkings dur-
ing National Coming Out Week last fall
was prejudiced and implied that some
members of the University community
harbored strong anti-gay sentiment.
The old policy "was absurd," Miller
said. "It relied on the prejudices of a
few people to decide when chalkings
Antieu said the University would
consider removing chalkings if individ-
uals complained the chalkings were
libelous, slanderous or otherwise vio-
lated the law. But under the policy, if
chalkings were altered by other groups,
as they were last winter, the University
would not become involved in the mat-
If someone considers a chalking
offensive, Antieu said, they should no
longer turn to the University for help.
"The appropriate response would be
for the group who's offended (by the
chalking) to remove it on their own,"
Miller said chalkings. whether they

"I am going to save the competitions for the
