Chili, spirit gear fans up for Homecoming game
By Whitney Meredith
For the Daily
Despite the drizzly weather and soggy grass,
many gathered Saturday morning at the pre-
game Homecoming Pep Rally featuring music,
food and sprit-evoking speeches.
Business School junior Niraj Patel said that
the pep rally got him "pumped up to see foot-
ball and excited to be a Michigan Wolverine."

the school spirit," said Kristen Sarri, an LSA

She said the Student Alumni Council has
been in charge of the pep rally for the last three
years, and planning for this year started at the
conclusion of Homecoming last year. During
this planning, the Council made continuous
adjustments to what was implicated.
One major change this year was timing. Tra-
ditionally the pep rally is held the Friday
evening before the homecoming game on the
Diag. But it was moved to Saturday on Elbel
Field before the game in hopes of increasing

"It's neat to have shows of student groups,
and to see what different organizations do,"
Engineering junior Carolyn Wineland said.
A number of fraternities and sororities par-
ticipated in the Gamma Phi Beta Chili Cook-
off. In a change from previous years, it was
opened to non-Greek organizations as well.
There was a $50 registration fee and only
nachos and bread were provided. Each organi-
zation gathered their own ingredients and pre-
pared the chili from their own recipe.
"I like how you get to sample different chilis
from every house. It's a good variety," LSA
senior Traci Buchalskik stated.
All profits traditionally go to charity, and this

Stephen Director, Engineering
Dean, commented on the location and

efforts of Class of 1950 donors for
bringing the sculpture to the Universi-

appropriately placed," Director said.

and family, faculty and students gath-
ered to witness the dedication and
hear Snelson speak about the concepts
behind many of his sculptures that can
be seen around the world.
Dean of the School of Art and
Design, Bryan Rogers, introduced
Snelson in a lecture following the ded-
ication, by describing the process of
inspecting nature in both art and sci-
"Sculptors starting with their vener-
able chiseling away and humps of
stone and often trying to immortalize
an image along the way expanded the
chiseling tradition and joined in exam-
ining the legal framework of nature,
not unlike what scientists and engi-
neers do," Rogers said.
Through a series of slides, Snel-
son presented his major works and
the development of the principle
"I have been interested in the nature
of structure over these many years,"
Snelson said. "By stacking weights, I
realized they could successfully sup-
port everything above and it would
move like a spinal column. You could
support two solid members with sim-
ply tension members."
By analyzing the structural theories
behind his sculptures, Snelson showed
the importance of engineering and sci-
ence in sculpture.
The Indexer II, which was created
in 2001, adds to the collection of
sculptures on North Campus and
shows the combination of three disci-
plines - art, architecture and engi-
neering - present on North Campus.
The class of 1931 also gave back to
campus, awarding 20 scholarships to
current Engineering students.
The scholarship program began in
1978 and now contains approximately
$3 million. After an applicant receives
a scholarship, which comes in the
amount of $8,000, it is renewed for the
rest of their college career, given that
they continue to take a full course load
and keep their grade point average
Several students attending the din-
ner said they were inspired by the sto-
ries and accomplishments of the alum.
"It's just amazing hearing the class
of '31 talk," Engineering senior and
scholarship winner Megan Flynn said.
"It's just really inspiring and makes
me want to be an engineer all over
"When I was six or seven years
old, a distant relative came to visit
and he was a civil engineer, and so I
decided to be a civil engineer, for no
reason other than that," said Streeter,
who came to the University from
"I was raised in a very small town. I
didn't know any engineers. It just
sounded glamorous and nothing ever
changed my mind," he added.
After graduation, Streeter worked
on the Hoover Dam and was a profes-
sor at the Illinois Institute of Technol-
ogy before returning to Ann Arbor as a
civil engineering professor.
"I love the place. It's a great school,
great conditions," said Streeter, who is
almost 93 years old.
At one point in time, he worked for
Dietle, who owns an engineering con-
"I'll tell you, my family wanted me
to become a doctor, but I read about
the building of the Panama Canal. One
man did so much for a lot of people
over so many years, and so I decided
that I could do more as an engineer,"
Anderson, identifying with Univer-
sity students, recalled the Michigan
football games he attended and the
battles he had with his landlords.
A 20-watt bulb caused an uproar
between him and his landlord, who he
described as a "real tightwad." After
he and his roommate requested a high-
er wattage bulb and his landlord
refused, they took matters into their
own hands, burning the bulb out pur-
posefully and then taking it to Detroit
Edison, which replaced it for free with
a 60-watt bulb.
"We had the 20-watt bulbs, but they
had to be burned out or no deal. Well,
my radio set had 300 watts of power. It
burnt out in a hurry," he said, adding
that the landlord removed the 60-watt
bulb and replaced it with another 20-
watt bulb. "We just went through the
process again and again."
The class has an annual dinner,
which along with being a homecom-
ing event, also serves as a chance for
generations of University engineers
to tell their tales and learn from their
"My years have carried me all over
the damn world. I've done a lot of
things and met a lot of people,"

He added that since much of the
media portrayal of Islam and Mus-
lims is distorted, it is even more
important that Islam Awareness

lims about the basic concepts of
Islam and also to show that Islam is
Engineering junior Shuaib Mirza,
also a Muslim Student Association
member, stressed that Islam means
peace and has been a peaceful and
tolerant religion looking back
"If you look at Islamic history
you'll find that Islam has been very
tolerant to all the religions it has
governed and it's probably the most
tolerant to all religions ... nobody
mentions that," he said.
Mirza added he hopes people take
away from the week a sound under-
standing of Islam.
"Just to have a knowledge of a
religion that is the second largest
religion in the world and that their
fellow students follow - they have
friends that are Muslim, they deal
with Muslims everyday, so they
should have a sound knowledge in
who we are and what we believe and
our motivations," he said.
The first Islam Awareness Week
was organized in 1994 and held on
campuses around the country, with
the goal of providing information
regarding Islam's message and way
of life while clearing up possible

need to address the injustices in the

There seemed to be a variety of
different reasons for protesting the
"This is to support the Iraqi peo-
ple. It's important for Muslims to
support Iraqi people," Ann Arbor
resident Mahmoud Habeel said.
"From my side it's obvious there are
two reasons for fighting Iraq - oil
and long-term protection of Israel."
Aladin Abraham, who attended the
rally with Habeel, added, "When it
comes to the Mid-East, the capital
isn't Washington, it's Tel-Aviv."
There were a plethora of speakers
and performers including Congress-
woman Lynn Rivers (D-Ann Arbor)
and members of the band Funktelli-
"I stand for peace rather than
war," Rivers said. "Will I stand for
spending $200 billion on this folly
or will I use that money to educate
the American people?"
When everything was said and
done, the organizers said they felt
satisfied with attendance, conduct
and impact of the march. They
stressed the impetus for the march
didn't come from them, but the
"People who were'not activists
themselves were calling us and ask-
ing if we were going to march,"
Camino said. "This tells me that we
have a large mainstream base."
