rescued after avalanche
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Nine
motorists were rescued by a police helicopter
yesterday after spending the night trapped by a
series of avalanches south of Anchorage that
killed a maintenance worker.
The travelers, who had kept in touch with res-
cuers by cellular phone as they waited along the
Seward Highway, were flown out in three groups
and taken to a diner for breakfast. They were in
"We ate everything they had in the restaurant,
and now we're starting all over again," Darwin
Peterson said. "I told my wife when we get back
home, I'm not going as far as the post office for
the rest of the winter."
Ten other motorists trapped by another
avalanche elsewhere along the highway were res-
cued late Monday by a construction crew that
used a front-end loader to clear away snow.
Avalanches have covered parts of the highway
over a 50-mile stretch south of the city. Yesterday
afternoon, an Alaska Railroad employee was
killed when an avalanche smashed into his bull-
dozer while he was clearing snow. Kerry Brook-
man of Palmer was pulled from the snow but
died of his injuries.
Alternating freezes and thaws in December
created a base of crusty, unstable snow, and a
series of storms deposited deep snow over the
past week. The combination has created the
worst avalanche danger in 20 years.
Some of the those rescued yesterday had
wrapped up for the night in sleeping bags, while
others were in a van that had a propane heater.
They spent the time playing cribbage, getting
acquainted and talkmg to troopers by phone.
Most Alaskans carry warm clothing, sleeping
bags and survival gear when they travel long dis-
tances in the winter.
Blizzard conditions prevented rescuers from
dropping supplies such as food and blankets
overnight, when temperatures dipped into the low
teens. The rescuers had to wait for the weather to
clear to reach the motorists.
Peterson and his wile, Geneese, had braved bliz-
zard conditions Monday to make a 100-mile trip
along the Seward Highway to Anchorage, where he
was scheduled for leg surgery.
He said they were part of a lour-car caravan
creeping along the highway at the base of the
Chugach Mounhins when they found the road
had been blocked by an avalanche 40 miles south
of Anchorage shortly before noon.
They turned around but managed to go only a
few hundred yards before they were struck by
"it came down and pretty well covered the two
vehicles ahead me and pushed them off the road,"
Peterson said. "I was the third one and it didn't
cover me so much."
No one was injured and the travelers worked
together to dig the hicle 'ut of snow that
buried them up to five feet deep.
"It was snowing so hard and wind was blowing
so hard that you couldnit se icross the road," he
On the Sterling Highway about 100 miles
south of Anchorage, a v'omai and her two
daughters had to be dug out after an avalanche
struck them Monday.

difficult living situation, Jamal's mother
asked a friend of hers if Jamal could live
with him, and he would provide the nec-
essary support for him," he said.
Sources familiar with Seattle high
school basketball told The Michigan
Daily yesterday that Crawford lived with
several different people other than his
mother in the past three years, including
his girlfriend, his Rainier Beach, Wash.
High School basketball coach Mike
Bethea and teammate Will Conroy.
After learning of the guardianship,
the department initiated its own month-
long investigation by sending a compli-
ance counselor to Seattle on Jan. 6.
"When we became aware of this,
because this person was in no way relat-
ed to the University of Michigan - he
wasn't a booster - it appeared to us
that this was an OK arrangement,"
Bates said. "But we still wanted to test it
with (the NCAA). And when we talked
to them, they clearly said that he was
not a booster, that it's not a (booster)
violation, but there was perhaps another
bylaw, that bylaw deals with amateurism
and that's what they brought into play"
University Athletic Director Tom
Goss said "amateurism" is the bylaw
which prohibits an amateur athlete from
having a sponsor.
On Friday, the Athletic Department
received a call from the NCAA telling
them the findings may break an ama-
teurism rule in an NCAA bylaw and
suggested the department rule him ineli-
gible until the matter is resolved.
The NCAA "is saying is that this
could be similar to an athlete having a
sponsor and an amateur can't have a
sponsor," Goss said.
After the NCAA informed the Athlet-
ic Department they would have to evalu-
ate the possible violation, Michigan
ruled Crawford ineligible, allowing him
only to practice. But the department
hoped the matter would be solved in
time for the Michigan State game.
But the NCAA committee reviewing
the matter still had not made a decision

in last night's game at Crisler Arena.
and Michigan was forced to keep Craw-
ford ineligible for last night's game.
"Based on NCAA policy, the Michi-
gan Athletic Department must declare
any athlete ineligible when there is a
question of potential NCAA rules viola-
tion,' Madej said,
If the NCAA votes in Michigan's
favor, Crawford would be immediately
reinstated to play. If the NCAA votes
that Michigan did violate the rule,
Crawford could not be reinstated until
he repaid the Seattle man he lived with
for all the extra benefits he received.
Bates said Crawford would be bound
to a repayment plan.
"Either way, he'll be reinstated,"
Bates said. "If the NCAA votes against
us, benefits would have to be repaid."
"I want to say that I don't feel I did
anything wrong," Crawford said in the
written statement. "I understand that
there are rules, but never did I feel that I
broke any of those rules. This comes as
a surprise that (the NCAA) would rule
this way on a decision my mother made
for me three years ago.
Michigan men's basketball coach
Brian Ellerbe, would not comment on
whether he knew about the alleged
guardianship transfer during the recruit-

The student maintained that her
chief goal was to retrieve her property
and she "just want to be done with it."
"There are people looking into it,"
Associate Athletic Director for Media
Relations Bruce Madej said after last
night's Michigan-Michigan State bas-
Athletic Director Tom Goss said he
had "no problems with the way Ellerbe
handled the incident," although the
matter is still under investigation.
Bollinger said the investigation,
while primarily under the jurisdiction
of the Athletic Department is a "joint
effort" between the University admin-
istration and the Athletic Department,
adding that this particular investigation
will not receive any special treatment.
"This is no different from any other

taken by the University Board In Con-
trol of Intercollegiate Athletics. Com-
mittee member Larry Root said he had
"full confidence" in Goss' ability to
deal with this issue.
Bollingr dn i ed rumors that the
University would be pursuig its own
investigation into the mntoer.
"The Athletic Department will do
the first review. I think this is a matter
that raises concerns. There may be
some new facts and its important to do
the proper investigation. If I think this
has not been handled properly, I will
intervene' Bolling said.
This situation has added to concerns
surroudin the men's basketball pro-
gram. A FBI investigation continues
into relationship between former players
and athle 4i booster Ed Martin. The
Athletic D 'partmtnt has passed several
measures to stVngthln the regulations
regarding boosters and gambling.
