Popular Organizational Studies no longer available

T he University takes- great
pride in its diversity: Its stu-
dents come from all over the
world and although each has a
unique combination of race, eth-
nicity, religion, academic inter-
ests and ideology, there is a place
for everyone here in Ann Arbor.
Well, almost everyone.
If you're an undeclared under-
graduate who is thinking about
an independent concentration
program in Organizational
Studies, then the University no
longer has a place for you. LSA
Dean Shirley Neuman recently
sint- out a letter stating that the
organizational studies ICP "will
cease to be available as a 'con-
centration' choice for students,
effective immediately." Neuman
contends in the letter that the
existing program "lacks a clear
thematic content" and "has never
been through the necessary cur-
ricular and faculty review." She
also cites the fact that the pro-
gram has little faculty oversight
as a reason for discontinuing it.
According to Neuman's letter,
there is currently a committee of
both LSA and School of

The program didn't
need to be canned
while it is improved
Information faculty drafting a
proposal to create an official pro-
gram similar to . the
Organizational Studies ICP that
would have "appropriate faculty
oversight." Neuman said she
expects some type of program to
be reinstituted by next fall, but
that is hardly a guarantee and stu-
dents not currently majoring in
organizational studies should not
have that option taken away from
them before an official program
is instituted.
The purpose of allowing ICP's
in Organizational Studies was to
let ambitious, hard-working stu-
dents concentrate in a program
not currently offered at the
University, but that is becoming
an increasingly popular field in
higher education. This program
has been successful in the past
because students who chose to
participate in it were motivated

enough to pLu'rsue their interests
and had managed to be success-
ful even without the same faculty
oversight as other programs.
Neuman has said LSA is plan-
ning on reopening the op ortuni-
ty to study organizationa studies
through an of icial concentration
program, but such a popular field
of stud should not have been
shut of to new students in the
mean time. Since the interest is
there, it is the University's
responsibility to pony up and"
provide a well-designed major
or interested students. The
'problems,' such as lack of facul-
ty oversight, are fixable.
Diversity is an essential ele-
ment in a great education and it
is fantastic that the University
can unite so many kinds of peo-
ple in the common purpose of
higher learning. However, this
diversity should not stop in the
course guides; if LSA continues
to limit its students' academic
opportunities and to attempt to
merge with and tightly control
smaller units, the unfortunate
homogenization of the its cur-
riculum is inevitable..

Where's the keg?
New bill invades privacy in attempt to curb drinking

B clieve it or not. I really do
have sympathy for the stu-
dents at Michigan State
University. 4
These poor, simple kids have
to live with this huge chip on their
collective shoulders, just because
their school is located so close in
proximity to the University of
Michigan. Can you imagine how
that must feel, to know that no
matter how hard you try, you'll
always find yourself in a maize
and blue shadow?
I think it's a shame
that State that doesn't'
Oct the attention it
deserves. It's far and
away the biggest
accredited institution in
the greater East Lansing
area. It boasts some of
the finest students that
Midland has to offer,
and its proud alumni
organization includes C
some of the most suc- K
cessful Countryfresh
distributors in northern
Michigan.
But for those poor
bastards that call them-
selves Spartans, attending State
must be like living in Canada:
They try so hard to be like the
United States, but when it all
cones down to it, we'll always
laugh at the way they say "about."
Or perhaps it's more like living
in Mexico, where they look long-
ingly at the promised land of Ann
Arbor but are forever turned away
by the border patrols of academic
competence.
That's why I feel so slightly
bad for Michigan State students,
because they're always going to be
plaving second fiddle. And I mean
that literally - the kids in East
Lansing will still be a'fiddling and
a jigging round the old barn long
after I've bought the proverbial
farm.
That's not to say, though, that
there haven't been some great sec-
ond fiddlers throughout history.
There's no shame in saying that
you're the Art Garfunkel of'
Michigan colleges. I mean,
Garfunkel had a great voice and
he sang really well. On all those
tunes that Paul Simon wrote.
And what about Tito .Jackson?
Sure, Michael may have invented
the moonwalk and recorded some
of the most successful albums of
the '80s, but, damn, Tito had a
nice fro, and even that's something
to hang your "S" hat on (though
not literally).
Here's the deal:
State is the Goose to our

(u

Maverick, the Jazzy Jeff to our
Fresh Prince. the Burt Ward to our
Adam West.
State is the Jagger-Richards to
our Lennon-McCartnev, the Trix
Rabbit to our Cap'n Crunch, the
lambskin to our latex.
State is the Damon to our
Keenan Ivory, the Enulish Leather
to our Old Spice, the sadist to our
masochist.
State is the White Castle to
our...no, let's just say that State is
White Castle and leave
it at that.
State is the John to
our Ponch, the Scram
Slam to our All-
American, the Markv
Mark to our Dirk
Diggler.
State is the Sammy
Ilaggar to our David
Lee Roth - wait,
change that: State is the
IS Gary Cherone to our
1a David Lee Roth.
State is the "Look
Who's Talking, Too" era
Travolta to our
"Welcome Back,
Kotter" era Travolta
(which means that Ferris State is
the guy who played IHlorshack).
State is the Trammell to our
Whitaker to Evans to retire the
Blue Jays in the sev- oh, I'm
sorry, I was just reliving the glory
days of October '87.
State is the Buddy to our
Charles, the Charles to our
Admiral Powell, the Admiral
Powell to our -oh, c'mon, who
am I kidding:? Charles was in
charge, of both our days and our
nights, our wrongs and our rights.
State is the Bill S. Preston
esquire to our Ted "Theodore"
Logan, the Sajak to our Trebck,
the St. Stanislaus to our St.
Ignatius (ooh, snap!). State is the
"Kokomo" to our Good
Vibrations," the velcro wallet to
our "Bad Notherfucker" wallet,
the Gobots to our 'ransformers,
(I'm sorry, that Gobots reference
was out of' line.)
State is the orey Haim to our
Corey Feldman (a moot point.?),
the Mr. Pibb to our Dr. Pepper, the
"Are those Bugle Boy jeans you're
wearing?'" to our "Why,' yes, they
are.
The bottom line is that when it
comes to respect, State will always
be the Otis Redding version, and
we'll always be Aretha's - and
we'll never, ever miss a chance to
sock it to them, sock it to them,
sock it to them.

A Spartan "S- hanus over the door for each
player to see as they leave the Michigan foot-
ball lockerroom. It was hung after Michigan's
34-31 loss last year in East Lansing, and has
been feared ever since. Each player is made
brutally aware of' What happened to last year's
No. 3 football squad after they dropped the big
name to arguably their biccest rival.
"You wiIl see on Saturday how much these
two teams hate each other,' defensive lineman
Larry Foote said.
It woeas unspoken hatred at yesterday's
Niichican football luncheon. The rivalry talk
was fiee-flowing, but coach Carr did every-
thing in his power to eliminate the trash talk-
inc.
Each player was escorted out of the press
conference so that the media would not have an
opportunity for one-on-one interviews with the
players. In the past, quotes have been taken
from the players and posted up in the opposing
teams' lockerrooms as incentive for ictorv.
"I don't read to much into the quotes but I
know that coach Carr talked to sdme of the
players about what they said,' offensive line-
man Jeff Backus said. "Every week he says be
careful of what we say. I know that last year
some quotes did et mixed up that wasn't good
for us."
After last season's loss Carr was determined
to not have this happen again.
"YoU always have to be concerned as a
coach ." Carr said. "I told them that they had to
be concerned xxith That they are saying
because some people will try to hurt their
chances to xx in.
As a native of Ietroit, Foote said its hard to be
profCssional with the in-state rivalry game but
did his best vesterdav to keep a straight face.

KEEPING

M' clams up for big week

Foote has alvavs been a Michigan fan even
before he became a W'olcerine and remembers
fondly being in the stands for the 45-29 thrash-
ing of the Spartans in 1996.
Foote added that he would nexer wear green,
even on St. Patrick's Day.
The same thing could not be said for Backus
yesterday who wore a creen shirt to the lun-
cheon. lie said that it wasn't intentional, just a
lack of clean laundry. But he made sure to
change immediately.
Backus, a fifth year senior, is determined not
to leave Michigan on a loss to the Spartans.
"A lot of myv friends were in last year's grad-
uatin class, Backus said. "They said that
wanted to get (the State game) back. They
couldn't believe their final game to State was a
loss."
Backus added that one way to chance things
around this year was to establish the running
came. That was the Wolverines downfall in last
season's loss - they finished the game with
only six rushing yards.
The Wolverines already have as many rush-
inc vards this season as they did all of last sea-
son. And Anthony Thomas is currently ranked
seventh in the nation in runninc. -
But he will be up against some stiff compe-
tition in Michican State's T.J. Duckett this
Saturday.
"Duckett reminds me of Ron Dayne." Foote
said. "But 1; can move better laterally than
Davne."
But with everything that was talked about or
at least asked vesterdav, one item barely came
up: Michigan State's 0-3 record in conference
play.
Evervone knows that doesn't matter this
weekend.
"YoU throw out all the records," offensive
lineman Maurice Williams said. "It 's who
wants to win most.

passes the two state houses, buying

the paperwork burden will fall on

would require any person purchas-

license number, as well as the
address for which they are purchas-

flaws in Caul's House bill is the
assumption that the detailed regis-
tration of kegs will curb binge and
underage drinking - especially at
colleges and universities.
If passed, the law would have
two negative consequences. First,

required by the bill to discover who
