Brown Jug to celebrate 60 years of tradition

Daily Staff Reporter
The Brown Jug restaurant, a cornerstone of
Ann Arbor since 1938, turns 60 this year.
The establishment, which has become as big
a part of the Wolverine tradition as football
Saturdays and walks through the Diag, will
celebrate its anniversary with an open house
next Thursday, Nov. 19, from 5-8 p.m.
Owner Jim Paron said he is grateful to Ann
Arbor for supporting the restaurant, which his
family has owned since 1959.
"In this day of corporate, hands-off ownership,
it is not common to see a family-run business stay

around for so long," Paron said.
An important part of The Brown Jug's history is
the story behind its name, which is rooted in the
tradition of Michigan football.
The 1903 Michigan-Minnesota game was
played on Gopher territory. Before the game
began, the Michigan football team sent its manag-
er into town to buy a water jug for the team to
In a surprising upset, the game tied and fans
and players rushed the field. In the excitement,
Michigan players left the new jug in
Then-Michigan football coach Fielding
Yost, whom Yost Ice Arena is named for, called
Minnesota's coach to ask for the jug back.
The coach kindly told him, "You'll have to win
Since then, the yearly matchup of Michigan and
Minnesota has become known as the Little Brown
Jug game, a tradition lasting 95 years.
And 60 years ago, the restaurant's owner,
named their venue in its honor.
Thursday's anniversary celebration will include
complimentary hors d'oeuvres and champagne, live
entertainment and the appearance of local celebri-
ties, including Ann Arbor Mayor Ingrid Sheldon.
The Brown Jug owners also plan to assem-
ble a pictorial collage of the celebration, by
taking pictures of the anniversary party's

Students make campus
re cycling guideb00ok
Daily Staff Reporter
Frustrated by the enormous amount of waste produced by off-
campus students at move-out time, four University students
resolved to take action.
A small idea became an important endeavor, and now the
University's first-ever recycling guide for off-campus students is
SNRE senior Robin Deutsch, Art junior Betsy Stromberg,
SNRE senior Becky Setzman and LSA sophomore Jennifer
Anderson, who assembled the guide, began planning it when
they served on the Winter 1998 Environmental Theme Semester
planning committee last year.
Deutsch said they hope the guide will help students make the
transition from recycling in the residence halls to recycling off
campus, and eventually become a standard source of informa-
tion for landlords and apartment owners.
Students, Deutsch said, often don't realize the problems of
dumping their trash onto the streets at move-out time.
"I think a lot of people think that once it's out of your sight, it's
not a problem - but it is," said Deutsch, co-chair of Michigan
Student Assembly's Environmental Issues Commission.
The eight-page guide, titled "Michigan Recycles," includes
basics about sorting, tips for moving and phone numbers of local
donation and re-use centers.
Many people, Deutsch said, are unaware of recycling's sim-
plicity. A local curb-side recycling service, Recycle Ann Arbor,
brings residents two bins for paper and containers when they call
"It's so easy and it's completely free. It's really an amazing sys-
tem," Deutsch said.
Deutsch, Setzman, Stromberg and Anderson coordinated with
local recycling agency, city and University representatives to
conduct research for the guide.
They received funding for the project from MSA, the city of
Ann Arbor and the Environmental Theme Semester, among
Last year, the students were instrumental in organizing Green
Move-Out, a recycling program for off-campus students similar
to the move-out program in residence halls.
Students donated furniture, clothing, packaged food and toi-
letries at three different off-campus sites.
Sarah Archer, the University's Recycling Coordinator, said
last year was a record year for the amount of donations generat-
The program compiled a total of 12 tons of donations from
residence halls and students in off-campus housing last year -
twice the collection of the previous year, she said.
Recycle Ann Arbor is coordinating with other groups to pub-
licize America Recycles Day on Sunday.
Ramsey Zimmerman, commercial recycling services manag-
er at Recycle Ann Arbor, said this is the perfect time to launch
"It's a chance to really energize the students." Zimmerman
Deutsch said she believes students can make a big impact on
the environment by recycling.
"As University students, we live very disposable lifestyles;"
Deutsch said. "Just think ... pizza boxes, notebooks, pencils."
Compiling the guide required spare time and late nights at the
School of Art and Design, Deutsch said.
"It was something we all believed in, something close to our
hearts," she said.
The guide is available at Pierpont Commons, the Campus
Information Center, the Michigan Union and the MSA office.

These few words from Sigma Phi
Epsilon's motto describe the type of
men the chapter wishes to attract to
its new house at 725 Oxford St.
The house has switched hands in
the past. It began as the Sigma Kappa
sorority house until it was converted
and divided into multiple apartments.
The chapter presently is housing
17 new Sig Ep members, and they
have been conducting social func-
tions since Sept. 1.
"The structure will help the chap-
ter internally and externally. The men
now have a place to meet and
become closer as a house. They also
will now have a place to have social
functions," said Interfraternity
Council President Bradley Holeman.

Sig Ep originally lost its charter in
the fall of 1995 due to various

violations, including hazing and
uncontrolled alcohol consumption.

marks a positive change, said Sig Ep
