After 2014, it may be a while
before Michigan and Notre Dame
face each other in football.
Notre Dame will opt out of its
scheduled games with Michigan
beginning in 2014, the Michigan
Athletic Department announced
Tuesday. The three games
planned, between the two teams
from 2015-17 will not be played.
The teams were already planning
to take a two-year break begin-
ning in 2018.
Notre Dame Athletic Director
Jack Swarbrick informed Michi-
gan that the school was pulling

out of the series in a letter deliv-
ered to.Michigan Athletic Direc-
tor Dave Brandon before the
Michigan-Notre Dame game last
Saturday, according to the Associ-
ated Press, which received a copy
of the letter through the Free-
dom of Information Act. Brandon
released a statement Tuesday
after the initial report.
"The decision to cancel games
in 2015-17 was Notre Dame's and
not ours," Brandon said in the
statement. "We value our annual
rivalry with Notre Dame but will
have to see what the future holds
for any continuation of the series.
This cancellation presents new
scheduling opportunities for our
program and provides a chance to
create some new rivalries."
Earlier this month, Notre Dame
announced that all of its sports,
except football and hockey, will
move to compete in the ACC. As
part of the agreement, the Fight-

When Nursing freshman
Kendra Mikatarian joined the
University's chapter of College
Republicans this semester, she

sought to follow in the foot-
steps of her older sister, who is
an active member in the orga-
nization.
Both the College Repub-
licans and the University's
chapter of College Democrats
have reported increased mem-
bership since the start of the
semester, and Mikatariap is one
of many students who've the

Brill, the chair
of the University's chapter of
College Democrats, said the
College Democrats have expe-
rienced almost five times the

membership they typically
have during non-election years.
She said the swell in numbers
is especially visible at mass
meetings and other events, not-
ing that the first meeting was
standing room only.
Though this semester has
seen a significant increase in
participation, Brill added that
the increase is still less than in
2008 when interested students

LOCAL BUSINESSES
Former Fifth
Ave. club to be
converted into
office space

Fifth Quarter
will become new
headquarters of
local realtors
By LIANA ROSENBLOOM
Daily StaffReporter
After years of ongoing legal
issues that led to the subsequent
close of Fifth Quarter nightclub,
the building located at 210 S.
Fifth Avenue will soon become
home to the offices of the oxford
Companies, a local property
management company.
The 12,000-square-foot build-
ingiscurrentlyundergoingmajor
renovations to convert the for-
mer nightclub into office space,
according to Deborah Pearson,
the director of leasing and sales
for Oxford Companies.
"The building's been gutted
and we've put windows in on the
first floor," Pearson said. "The

whole first floor has alot of light
and looks like a new space."
The furnishings of the corpo-
rate offices are still in the works,
but Pearson said the company -
which bought Arch Realty Com-
pany in May - should be able to
move in no later than Jan. 1. The
office space on the second floor
will serve as the home to both
companies.
"The idea was to both buy the
building and be able to put our
whole company together there,"
Pearson said. "We're goingto put
Arch and Oxford in that building
so we will all be under one roof,
and that's the plan for the entire
second floor of the building and
part of the first floor."
Oxford Companies currently
operates outof 312 S. State St. and
Arch Realty Company is located
at 616 Church St. With the addi-
tion of the old Fifth Quarter
building, Oxford Companies has
a portfolio of about 32 commer-

Move would limit
non-student
participation
By GIACOMO BOLOGNA
DailyStaffReporter
The Central Student Gov-
ernment proposed a resolu-
tion Tuesday night that would
effectively end several years

of attendance and speeches by
an anti-Israel group at assem-
bly meetings.
For a number of years, Ann
Arbor resident Blaine Cole-
man, Mozhgan Savabieasfa-
hani, a sponsored affiliate in
the School of Public Health,
and other activists have con-
sistently spoke during the
community concerns section
of the weekly assembly meet-
ings. While their presence -

often expressing anti-Israel
sentiments - has stirred the
assembly before, a resolution
introduced Tuesday would
give non-University stu-
dents only one opportunity
per semester to address the
assembly during the commu-
nity concerns.
Per the proposed resolu-
tion, members of the spm-
munity can still address the
