There was a home invasion in Fam-

Department of Public Safety spokes-

She said a woman heard the front
door to her apartment open and thought
it was her husband coming home. She
remained in the other room and later
realized the person that entered her
home was not her husband and $200
was missing from her purse.

The first-time matchup between
Michigan and Texas on the football
field spurred students and alumni to
make the trip to Pasadena and support
the University's football team.
Although fans traveled to Pasadena
in a number of ways, many opted for
the tour packages that were offered by
the Alumni Association. The packages
included game tickets, hotel accommo-
dations, as well as other benefits, such as
an invitation to the official tailgate party
sponsored by the Alumni Association
and the Tournament of Roses parade.
The price of a standard five-day pack-
age for a single person was $1,962. Cath-
erine Niekro, vice president of marketing
and communications for the Alumni
Association said 1,300 individuals par-
ticipated in both the five-day and two-
day land/air or land-only tour packages.
This year the Alumni Association
also sponsored a pep rally the day
before the game.
"The pep rally was fantastic. The
whole team was there along with the
coaches. President Coleman was there
as well, along with the marching band
and cheerleaders," said Niekro, who is
also a member of the Board for Student
Publications that oversees the financial
operations of The Michigan Daily.
Along with the pep rally, the Alum-
ni Association held the official Univer-
sity tailgate party prior to the game.
Niekro said there was a good turnout
with 3,500 people attending the event.
Some students looked for other
options in order to make the trip to the
Rose Bowl a little less pricey.
Some students opted to buy airplane
tickets with connections in other cities
in order to offset the cost of traveling to
the game. Many students also purchased
tickets through the athletic department
instead of buying tickets elsewhere.
The University's loss, however, did
not dampen the spirits of some who
attended the game.
"It was so much fun. It was an awe-
some game. (The crowd) was electric,"
Engineering junior Andy Wang said.
In regards to the loss, Wang said he
could swear that the final field goal by
Texas wasn't going to make it.
"All the (Michigan) people started
cheering, but then the referees put
their hands up and everyone quieted
down," Wang said.
Students who attended the game
said that Texas fans had been cordial
and friendly while the usual banter
existed among the rival fans.
Business junior Bochao Zhange
said, "All the Texas fans were really
nice, I think it had to do with the
fact that it was the first time (the two
teams have) played so there was no
animosity between the fans."
Wang echoed similar thoughts
regarding the demeanor of their rivals.
"Everyone was so nice, probably
because of the whole Southern hospi-
tality. Not much gloating after the game
from the fans," he said.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
I am an Ann Arbor businessman and a Vietnam Vet. As
such, I lived through decades of defamation by the me-
dia, entertainment and education industries. Vilification
was especially true in Ann Arbor and similar communities.
Years later, UM students began to interview us Vietnam
Vets and we learned what was being taught as history by
the offensive questions we were asked, in all innocence:
Did you murder any of your officers? Did you rape Viet-
namese women? The list goes on. In an attempt to set
the record straight, I decided to run ads that I call Food
for Thought. At the same time, I understood that some
day we would once more be at war. I was determined, as
are most Vietnam Vets, that the next generation of warriors
would not be treated as we were treated. With that in mind,
in future ads you will read of the lies told back then that are
taught as history today with the hope that you will compare
them to what is being reported on the Iraq war. I seek no
