Three students
arrested for
breaking, entering
The Department of Public Safety
arrested three University students early
yesterday morning for allegedly break-
ing and entering the Perry Building on
Packard Road.
Officers apprehended the students
after receiving a phone call from a wit-
ness who allegedly saw two people
break in through one of the structure's
windows. The three students were
found upon the police investigation of
the building.
The building's windows were not
locked at the time and no force was
used to enter, DPS Lt. Oscar Lopez
said. It is unknown what, if anything,
the students were attempting to take
from the building. The incident is still
under investigation.
The students, whose names will not
be made public until their arraignment,
were released from custody yesterday
pending the investigation's completion
and a review by the Washtenaw County
Prosecutor's Office.
The students are not suspected in
any other break-ins on campus, DPS
spokeswoman Diane Brown said. The
students could face burglary without
force charges.
The Perry Building houses the Insti-
tute for Social Research's Division of
Surveys and Technologies.
Disorderly man
arrested after
brief resistance
DPS officers on Monday arrested a
man for disorderly conduct after he
began shouting obscenities in a Univer-
sity Hospital parking lot. Reports state
the man had become angry after being
asked to leave the hospital and then
attempted to resist arrest.
Joy riders at golf
course vandalize
fence and carts
Two golf carts and part of the fenc-
ing surrounding University Golf
Course were reportedly vandalized
sometime between Monday night and
Tuesday morning, DPS reports state.
Lopez said it appears the golf carts
had been driven and moved but not
damaged. The fence was knocked down.
Owners return to
find unattended
vehicles keyed
Two people reported to DPS on
Tuesday that their vehicles had been
keyed during the previous day, DPS
reports show. Reports did not state if
any contents had been stolen from the
vehicles, which were parked in the
Fletcher Street carport and a Universi-
ty-owned parking structure.
In another incident, a caller reported
that the passenger-side window to his
vehicle had been broken while the car
was left unattended in a University-
bwned lot. According to DPS reports,
jhe caller stated the glovebox had been
shuffled through but did not believe
apything had been stolen.

May 2001 assaults

DPS officers learned Tuesday after-
noon of two alleged assaults that
occurred to the same victim in May
2001. The assaults are now under
investigation, reports state.

tal on Monday, in which a caller report-
ed that her Coach-brand briefcase

IriS fh t
song deemed
better than
M~' 'J tors'
DETROIT (AP) - Notre Dame is
better than Michigan.
Now those are fighting words, what
with the Irish heading to Ann Arbor to
play the Wolverines on Saturday in a
game that matches the two winningest
programs in Division I-A.
But Bill Studwell, a 67-year-old pro-
fessor emeritus of library studies, isn't
looking for a fight. He's simply offering
his educated opinion on fight songs.
And in his estimation, the "Notre
Dame Victory March" edges Michigan's
"The Victors" by the length of a football.
"Really, 'The Victors' is probably
my personal favorite," said Studwell,
author of the book "College Fight
Songs: An Annotated Anthology" in
which he ranks his top 25 college fight
songs. "But Notre Dame is more bor-
rowed, more famous and, frankly, you
just hear it more.
"Anybody who says that Notre
Dame's isn't one of the top five
songs is out of his gourd. That's like
saying Shakespeare didn't know how
to write."
Studwell, retired and living in
Bloomington, Ind., has for many years
been considered the country's leading
expert on Christmas carols.
Then, a decade ago, he began to
research the history of college fight
songs, and now - as he works on a
third edition of his fight song antholo-
gy - he can hum more than a few bars
from hundreds of them, from Maine's
"Stein Song" to Texas A&M's War
Hymn. ("Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem, Chig-
gar-roo-gar-rem, Rough Tough! Real
Stuff! Texas A&M!")
At the urging of colleagues,
Studwell produced his first rankings
several years ago and gradually added
to it until he had his top 25, mostly for
argument's sake.
His former employer, Northern Illi-
nois University, made the list at No. 23,
but lest he be accused of playing
favorites, his alma mater, the Universi-
ty of Connecticut, did not.

UHS evacuated
after bomb scare

By Margaret Engoren
Daily Staff Reporter
University Health Services Director
Robert Winfield responded to a bomb
threat yesterday afternoon by evacuat-
ing the UHS building and alerting the
Department of Public Safety.
"A very upset employee sent an e-
mail containing a vague threat," Win-
field said. "We evacuated the building
and DPS swept it with a bomb dog."
About 100 students and employees
left the building. No one was injured,
and no evidence of a bomb was found.
UHS was closed at 3:30 p.m. yester-
day and will reopen today.
"Although we considered it to be a
low-risk situation, we took the threat
seriously," Winfield said. "In light of
current world events, we wanted to be
totally safe."
Jennifer Nweke, who delivers mail
in the UHS building, said the atmos-
phere remained calm.
"I was delivering mail when I heard
about the threat," said Nweke, a Music
School senior. "We all went outside
and gathered across the street. A bomb
dog came to sweep the building, but
the people outside didn't seem too
Ann Arbor Police Department Lt.

Jesse Lewit answered a call from a
UHS staff member at 3:10 p.m., indi-
cating they had received a bomb
"We established a perimeter around
the building. Canine Officer Brian
Daniels and his German shepherd
Jessy conducted a search of the entire
building," Lewit said. "Nothing was
found and no one was hurt."
Jessy is a member of DPS's new
canine squad, which was created last
"We train every week and answer
about four calls a month," Daniels said.
"Most of our work is on campus, but
doesn't involve bomb threats."
Although Lewit and Daniels said
they responded to the call as they
would any routine threat, they
acknowledged the potential for added
concern considering today's two-year
anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist
"Community members should
report any suspicious people or
objects - anything that looks out of
place - to the authorities," Daniels
said. "And if a situation (like the UHS
bomb threat) were to occur again,
individuals can aid police efforts by
checking their personal areas before
evacuating the building."
