DPS: Suspect
similar to alleged
assailant at Natural
History Museum
By AUSTEN HUFFORD and
ADAM RUBENFIRE
Daily Staff Reporter and Daily News
Editor
After three sexual assaults
were reported to University and
Ann Arbor Police over Labor
Day weekend, a student report-
ed that a similarly described
suspect suspiciously touched
her on Friday.
A student told University
Police that on Friday at about 6
p.m., a male suspect approached
her and talked to her in Chinese
at the Michigan League. The sus-
pect and student then walked to
an exterior bench near the Mod-
ern Languages Building, where
the suspect allegedly rubbed
the student's outer thigh and
grabbed her cell phone.

The student took her cell
phone back and left the area.
She reported the incident to
police at about 11 p.m. Friday
and described the suspect as a
5'8" Chinese male with short
black hair, who appeared to be
about 25 years old and report-
edly spoke with a heavy accent.
The description of the sus-
pect from Friday's assault is
most similar to that of the sex-
ual assault at the University's
Museum of Natural History,
where the suspect also spoke in
Chinese with a heavy accent and
had a similar physical descrip-
tion.
Diane Brown, University
Department of Public Safety
spokeswoman, said Univer-
sity Police do believe Friday's
suspect is similar to the sexual
assault at the museum, but
aren't making any connections
to the other incidents at Michi-
gan Stadium and at the corner
of Washtenaw Avenue and Hill
Street.

The sound that defined
the Michigan football
team's 31-25 win over Air
Force on Saturday afternoon?
It wasn't the many renditions
of "The Victors" that rang out
from the Michigan Marching
Band as the pageantry of college
football returned to Ann Arbor
for a 133rd season.
It wasn't the raucous cheers
that broke out from the Michi-
gan Stadium crowd when senior
quarterback Denard Robinson
did what he does so magically,

busting out
for touch-
down runs of
79 yards and
58 yards in
the opening
minutes of
both halves. BEN
No, it was ESTES
the thunder-
ous, agoniz-
.inggroan
that broke out whenever Falcons
quarterback Connor Dietz ran
towards the sideline and tossed

the ball to his pitch man, usually
running back Cody Getz.
The groan evoked disgust and
anxiety, since nearly every time
that Dietz looked to pitch it to
Getz, the latter found himself
defended solely by air - no Wol-
verine there to cover him, Getz
had free reign with open space
ahead of him until a Michigan
defender could hustle over and
try to save face.
The Wolverines had it cov-
ered on occasion, but not nearly
enough. Getz went for 133 yards

and three touchdowns for the
afternoon, averaging five yards
per carry, and he and the rest of
Air Force's triple option attack
was almostenough to pull
the upsetin Michigan's home
opener.
After two games that have
seen the Wolverine defense give
up 863 total yards, the abilities
of the rebuilt defense, which is
inexperienced in several spots,
are coming into question.
That yardage figure includes

By GIACOMO BOLOGNA

While Republicans and Dem-
ocrats made headlines at their
national conventions over the
pastfewweeks, the state parties
also gathered in Grand Rapids
and Lansing, respectively, last
weekend to nominate candi-
dates at their state conventions.
The Michigan Republican
Party nominated University
alum, cardiologist Rob Steele,
the 2010 Republican challeng-
er to U.S. Rep. John Dingell
(D-Mich.), and Dan Horning,
a University Regent from 1994
to 2002, for the two open seats
for the University's Board of
Regents. The Democrats nomi-
nated Mark Bernstein, a Uni-
versity alum and president and
managing partner of the Sam

egent
Bernstein Law Firm, and Shau-
na Ryder Diggs, a dermatologist
and also a Universityalum. Uni-
versity regents are elected for
eight-year terms.
State Rep. Jeff Irwin (D-Ann
Arbor) attendedthe Democratic
convention this weekend and
said he emphasized University
issues when speaking to attend-
ees.
"My part of
the event was 1
really to talk
to people about 11111111
what's going
on in the Michigan Legislature
and how they can be active in
elections this fall," Irwin said.
"Those issues that I was talking
to the delegates about ....were
issues that affect our University
communityveryclosely."
Irwin also spoke to disap-
pointing advances in higher
education funding, which has
been slashed in recent years.
"Republicans, in the last two
years, cut higher ed. by 15 per-
cent, which was an unprece-
dented cut to higher ed.,"he said.

College Dems and

ByANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily StaffReporter
With Election Day only 56
days away, the University's
chapters bf College Demo-
crats and College Republicans
kicked off the school year with
mass meetings held in rooms
brimmed with students interest-
ed in becoming more politically
active in the coming months.
As both student groups com-
mence their fall campaign
efforts, members of the orga-
nizations said that high atten-
dance at their mass meetings is
reflective of the coming com-
petitive election season, even in
a city that traditionally supports
Democratic candidates.

chair of the College, Democrats,
said she was satisfied with the

Group offers
fresh produce at
stand outside of
Michigan League
By MOLLY BLOCK
Daily StaffReporter
Students seeking a fresh,
healthy snack between classes
now have the opportunity to
visit a new food stand with
an array of produce nestled

between Hill Auditorium and
the Michigan League.
The Ann Arbor Student Food,
Co-op. held its first weekly
fresh produce stand on Cen-
tral Campus from 11 a.m. to 4
p.m. lost Friday, with a colorful
table bursting with apples, car-
rots, kale, lettuce and avocados
at prices starting as low as 50
cents. The food stand, called
Brassica, derives its name from
the genus term for broccoli,
cabbage, cauliflower and other
similar vegetables, accord-
ing to LSA sophomore Mira

Fishman, the stand's sourcing
director.
"Brassica is one of the most
used and diverse families that
we eat from," Fishman said.
"It's a very easily manipulated
family so you can get lots of
products from it, which reso-
nates with our mission."
The group, founded last
semester, is a campus non-
profit student organization
that aims to provide affordable,
healthy, sustainable produce
on campus, Fishman said.
