"'This is the first time I've smiled in a month;' Canr

Carr and the Wolverines (1-0 Big Ten, 2-2 overall)
were all smiles Saturday after defeating nemesis
Michigan State, 29-17, in front of 111,238 at
Michigan Stadium. The attendance against the

The record-hreaking audience bore witness to a
Michigan victory in the 100th year of the two schools'
in-state rivalry. And just as important for the
Wolverines, thdy opened conference play with a victo-
ry and evened their record.
"I can't remember when I wanted to win a game
more," Carr said. "It's a ganse with great intensity in it.
I don't think that either team played great football but
both teams played extremely hard.
"There was s will to win out there on both sides"'
For Michigan, the turming point came at 9:31 in the
second quarter. With the score knotted at 10,

"As a receiver, anytime the ball is up in the air, I
expect to make a play," Streets said. "I tell the quar-
terback to give me a chance. I made the play and I'm
just happy he gave me a chance.'
Streets' catch, and the ensuing successful extra

Traveling from house to house on Hill Street and
Washtenaw Avenue, hundreds of women partici-
pated in the firat rounds of Panhellenic sorority
rush this weekend.
Rush is the period during which the 17
Panhellenic Association sororities and 844 poten-
tial Greek women on campus select each other.
Panhel's rush does not include all of the campus'
sororities, such as minority or academic sororities.
It's nol an simple as just dropping by a few hous-
es, chatting with some girls and picking a house.
Rush is a highly structured process that involves
numerous rules and regulations that make the
process seem unfriendly at times.
For new students such as Enginecring first-year
student Christy Williams, rush is a great opportu-
nity to make a big campus smaller.
"I have wanted to rush since I got here,"
Williams said. "All of the girls I have met that are
in sororities are really cool. I think it's going to
Throughout the four rounds of rush parties, the
rushees and sorority houses are mutually selecting
each other. The rushees rank their top choices on
sheets that are tamned in to Panhel. Several sorori-
es would not comment on exactly how they
choose thir members.

first-year stadent Barry Zilan, who said he

Zilan's decision to rush was influenced by a
friend who is in a fraternity.
"It seemed like he was having a lot of fiun,

BERLIN - In an election that will
transform the leadership of Europe's
most pivotal nation, Social Democratic
challenger Gerbard Schroeder ousted
Chancellor Helmut Kohl and brought
the left back to power in Germany for
te first time in 16 years.
It was the first time in modern
rnmany's history that a sitting chancel-
lor was voted out of office. Kohi's defeat
reflected disoontent with his failure to
cope wth record unemployment and a
clear desire to dump Europe's longest-
serving statetperaon in favor of ushering
a new generation into government.
"After 16 years, the Kohl era has
come to an end," Schroeder declared

'The new center has triumsphed and

Schroeder said. "It will be our task to
