University President Mary Sue
Coleman said in an interview last
week she hopes admission num-
bers will be better controlled next
year to ensure that every student
can have a quality Michigan expe-
rience.
The University received a
record number of applications last
year, with 30,947 students apply-
ing for admission, according to
the office of Admission's website.

Of those stu-
dents, 15,436
students had

admission as
of June 1. And

officials need a better estimate of
how many students will choose to

offers of admission.
"We don't want this," Coleman
said in an interview last week.
"This isn't a planned increase in the
studentpopulation."

recommend $1.8M
project in advance
of night games
By KYLE SWANSON
Daily News Editor
The University's Board of
Regents will hear a proposal to
install permanent stadium lights

at Michigan Stadium when it
meets during its regular monthly
meeting on Thursday.
The proposal, submitted by
Athletic Director David Brandon
and Tim Slottow, the University's
executive vice president and chief
financial officer, requests that the
regents approve the proposal to
place the project out for bids and
to award the project, provided it
falls within the established bud-
get.
The budget of $1.8 million for

the entire project would include
funds for purchasing the nec-
essary materials as well as the
architectural, electrical and
mechanical work necessary to
install the new lights.
According to the proposal, the
project would be fully financed
by Athletic Department resourc-
es. The Athletic Department is a
financially independent arm of
the University, which contributes
money to the University's general
fund.

In the past, temporary lights
were used to light the stadium for
games where it was necessary.
However, with two night
games already scheduled at the
Big House in the next year, the
lights, if approved by the regents,
are expected to be used somewhat
regularly.
"The Department of Intercol-
legiate Athletics plans to host a
night hockey game at the stadium
in December 2010, and a night

Alum Andrew
Shirvell decries
Armstrong's 'radical

By DEVON THORSBY
Daily News Editor
An assistant attorney general
in the appellate division for Mich-
igan Attorney General Mike Cox
is inserting himself into politics
on campus.

University alum Andrew
Shirvell has been actively speak-
ing out against Michigan Stu-
dent AssemblyPresident Chris
Armstrong since shortly after
his election in March. Shirvell
has periodically appeared at
various campus events to protest
Armstrong's presidency. He also
maintains a controversial blog
called "Chris Armstrong Watch,"
where he criticizes what he calls
the MSA president's "radical
homosexual agenda."
Officials at theAttorney Gener-
al's office confirmed that Shirvell

works for Cox and that they are
aware of his public disapproval
of Armstrong, including the blog.
Officials also said on Wednes-
day that they would provide The
Michigan Daily with a statement
on the issue, but despite several
follow-up inquiries over four
business days, a statement was
never received.
Shirvell declined to comment
in an e-mail interview last month
about whether his decision to
speak out against Armstrong has
affected his work for an elected

App features dining

Daily StaffReporter
Imagine being able to find
everything you need to know
about the University - from your
professor's office phone number

to the menu at campus dining
halls on any day to the current
location of your bus - while lis-
tening to Hail to the Victors and
standing virtually anywhere.
Thanks to University alums
Kevin Chan and Mark Yang, who
graduated in 2010, an imagina-
tion is no longer necessary - just
an iPhone.
What eventually became the
official Michigan iPhone applica-
tion was initially co-developed by

Chan and Yang as a class project
for a programming class in the
Electrical Engineering and Com-
puter Science Department.
"The theme of the class is a
semester-long project where you
have to create any application
that you like for any smart phone;
so we chose to make an app for
the iPhone because it is the most
widely available smart phone
and, at the time, Kevin and I both

New manager plans
to install slide in
once-popular bar
By LINDSAY KRAMER
Daily StaffReporter
After Packard Pub opened on the
corner of State and Packard streets
in March, it was jam packed for the
first few weeks. But then interest
began to diminish and support for

the new bar on campus waned.
Part ofthe pub's problem was due
to the way the restaurant was being
managed, according to the bar's
current manager Chris Bommarito.
Former Packard Pub Manager Kyle
Miller claimed he was the owner
of the bar-restaurant and was run-
ning the establishment in a fashion
contrary to the intent of the actual
owner, Michelle Trybyla.
Bommarito, who said in an inter-
view that the pub wasn'tbeing man-
aged in a way that maximized its

potential, replaced Miller in July.
"Although he did have almost full
controlofthebarwhile he was here,
the owner did step up and say she
didn't appreciate what he was doing
with it and simply removed him and
put me in place," Bommarito said.
Trybyla didn't respond to mul-
tiple interview requests from The
Michigan Daily.
Because of low profits while
Miller was running the bar, the Pub
had cut its hours and scaledback on
