"The Victors!"
turns 100 years old

By Clay Shaker
IFor th~ Daily
It wasn't written by the King of Pop or
the Father of Soul, but atler 100 years, it
could be called the grandfather of college
fight songs.
The Michigan fight song, "The
Victors!" celebrates 100 years of leading
the Wolverines into battle on the field this
season.
It was on a train ride back to Ann
Arbor after the 1898 football conference
championship that then-student Louis
Ibel jotted down the words that would
eventually adorn the outside of the Big
House.
"Having the fight song written by a
student embodies the school spirit even
more," said John Schmidt, a former
marcher who now works as the band's
physician.
lbel, inspired after watching the one-
point victory over what was then the
heaviest team in the conference ---the
Chicago Maroons - thought the
Wolverines needed a fight song that
matched their power.
And so, '"he Victors!" was born.
Elbel's brother read the chant and
decided it couldn't go unpublished. Ile
sent it to a printer -- in Notre Dame's
own South Bend, Ind., no less. The sim-
ple march ballooned into an elaborate 23-
instrument arrangement that is now
among the oldest and most recognizable
college fight songs in the country.
The wind behind "The Victors!" the

Michigan Marching Band - also cele-
brates a 100-year anniversary this year.
'The "100 years of tradition" banner
hanging outside Revelli IHTall, the location
of the marching band offices, is only one
part of the centennial celebration, which
will kick off at the Michigan homecom-
ing game against Indiana on Oct. 24.
At the homecoming game,,more than
300 marching band alumni will perform
traditional songs with the band.
The University has invited all of its
former marching band directors to the
homecoming game for a presentation by
current Michigan Marching Band
Director Kevin Sedatole. After 11 years
of teaching and directing at'Texas univer-
sities, Sedatole is in his third year with
the 390 Michigan marchers.
"Most directors don't like their jobs,
but my job isn't that way," Sedatole
said. "The kids are great. Their work
ethic is so high."
On the south side of campus, the
band can be heard warming up for a
4:45 p.m. practice as early as 3:30
p.m. The drum line pops in earplugs
to withstand the I110 decibels coming
from their instruments. The trumpet
line wears gloves to keep from dirty-
ing their horns during practice.
"Ihe traditions here are already estab-
lished,' Sedatole said.
In 1996, Sedatole switched the pre-
game "Victors!" marching style friom a
'70s and '80s lock step to a traditional
step from the '50s and '60s.

ALLISON CANTOR/Daily
The Michigan Marching Band practices Friday on Elbel Field. In honor of "The Victors!" and to raise funds, the band Is asking
for donations every time it plays the fight song at Michigan football games.

"We're more technically difficult and
musically difficult than ever" Sedatole
said. Ibis came naturally fror the hours
ofwork put in by his marchers.
"Were ready to put on a show in
DIefiance (Ohio) and Rattle Creek
(Mich.): said LSA senior and saxophon-
ist Dan Mansfield about upcoming exhi-
bitions.

Last year the marching band revisited
Pasadena, Calif., where in 1948 they
became the first Big'en band to travel to
the Rose Bowl.
The marching band is holding a fund
raiser in honor of the 100-year-old fight
song. The band is asking students, alum-
ni, and faculty to pledge money to the
band for every time the marchers strike

up the tune at home football game this
season.
So far, they've played "The Victors!"
48 times.
Information on making a pledge can
be obtained at Revelli I lall or through a
term found in Wolverine football pro-
gram.
The funds go directly to the band.

Granger's jail time may intluence
the status of his admission, said Vice
President for Student Affairs Maureen
I lart ford.
"Depending on when those days (in
jail) start, it is questionable whether
he'd even be out of jail when winter
term started," Ilart ford said.
The admissions investigation, headed
by Associate Vice Provost for Academic
and Multicultural Affairs Lester Monts,
is scheduled to be completed before the
start of winter term.
H artford said it is "hard to tell" if the
plea bargain which will keep
Granger out of prison and off the state's

investigation.
"On one level, the plea bargain
means he admits to doing wrong,"

(Granger must spell out -in cooper-
ation with the plea deal in court - what
he did that constitutes a crime. But
Granger's lawyer William Bufalino II
told the Detroit Free Press the plea will
not contradict (Granger's only public
comment on the charges.
"I can assure you that I am innocent
of the charges," Granger said in his
statement.
3ufalino said he hopes the plea bar-
gain will increase Granger's chances of
attending the school of his choice.
It is also uncertain, Hartford said,
whether Granger's time in jail could be
considered a violation of the Code of
Student Conduct. For a student to be
charged under the Code, the incident
must have occurred within six months
of when the IUJniversity files a Code vio-
tation.
Granger allegedly had sex with the
girls in December and January.
The Code of Student Conduct out-

Esrold Nurse, a member of Granger's

"We're moving ahead," Nurse said.

The Ann Arbor Police
Department ticketed four local restau-
rants Friday night for not checking
age identification before serving
alcohol.
Managers at Conor O'Neills pub
and Shalimar Restaurant said they
were nart of an alleged undercover
operation to catch restaurants selling
alcohol to minors. Members of the
Ann Arbor Police Department were
unable to comment about it.
The Parthenon Restaurant and
Old Heidelberg Restaurant were also
ticketed for not checking identifica-
tion cards, the Ann Arbor News
reported.
Bam Baluja, one of the owners of
Shalimar, said an undercover police
officer, posing as a customer, asked
one of the servers for a beer.
The server allegedly did not ask
for identification and brought the
drink to the undercover officer. (once
the drink was presented, the other
police officers displayed their badges.
All of the involved servers were
given misdemeanor tickets, according
to the Ann Arbor News.
The servers from Shalimar and
Conor O'Neills were terminated
from their jobs.
Conor O'Neills restaurant man-
ager Carolyn King said the server

who brought alcohol to the under-
cover police officer had just started
working there that night.
"Ile just had alcohol awareness
training," King said
'Ilis is Shalimar's first alcohol
offense since it opened five years ago.
"We were not purposely selling
to minors" Baluja said. "It was a
Friday evening and very busy and
the server forgot to ask for .1)."
Jeet Reen, husband of Baluja
and owner of Shalimar, said he does
not want to lose his liquor license
because someone forgot proper
alcohol serving procedure.
"We tell our servers to always ask
for I.D. I think it was an honest mis-
take' Baluja said. "Now we know
and we will incorporate strict rules
(and) use this as an example."
King said Conor O'Neills holds
mandatory alcohol awareness training
for all employees. One of the training
components is how to recognize false
identification.
John Gould, manger of Palio
restaurant, said they also have alco-
hol awareness training that involves
checking for proper identification
and recognizing when customers
are too intoxicated to consume
alcohol.
"We card everybody" Gould said.
"It's company policy to check for I.D.
for people 40 years and under."
