Victors for
Michigan launches
with record-setting
fundraising goal
By SAM GRINGLAS
and JENNIFER CALFAS
Daily StaffReporters
The. University announced
Thursday that the Victors for
Michigan campaign will be
the largest fundraising drive
for a public institution in his-
tory - with an ambitious $4

billiongoal.
Victors for Michigan, the
University's sixth major fund-
raising campaign, will launch
Nov. 8. The University's last
campaign, The Michigan Dif-
ference, raised $3.2 billion
between 2000 and 2008 -
surpassing its original goal of
$2.5 billion.
University President Mary
Sue Coleman said last winter
that the primary priority for
the campaign will be student
support through financial
aid. At Coleman's leadership
breakfast last month, Cole-
man reiterated that $1 billion

in campaign funds will be
focused on student support.
Just like the last campaign,
Coleman said in an interview
after the eventthat passingthe
$4-billion mark is possible.
"It is always possible that
if the campaign is phenom-
enally successful, then maybe
midway we could raise it,"
Coleman said. "There's a lot of
analysis that goes into doing it,
but I feel really good about this
number. It's a very audacious
campaign."
Campaign organizers have
made students central to
campaign strategy, not only

creating goals for student sup-
port, but also in involving stu-
dents in campaign planning
and marketing. The Office of
Development created a stu-
dent campaign committee
- the first of its kind at the
University - consisting of 19
members from various under-
graduate and graduate schools
to assist in the fundraising and
planning process.
The campaign will also
focus on raising funds for
developing a more engaged
learning environment in the
classroom and producingidea

Medical Student
murdered in July at
Phi Rho Sigma house
By PETER SHAHIN
Daily News Editor
Three people have been arrested in
connection with the July murder of
Medical School student Paul DeWolf.
DeWolf, a Second Lieutenant in the
United States Air Force, was found
dead from a single gunshot wound to
the neck in his room at the Phi Rho
Sigma medical fraternity on North
Ingalls Street on July 24. Police have
been investigating the DeWolf case
for nearly three months.
In a statement, Ann Arbor Police
Chief John Seto said the three sus-
pects arrested do not have any
apparent affiliation with DeWolf,
the University or the Air Force. The
suspects have not yet been arraigned
and police are continuing their inves-
tigation and evidence gathering.
Police do not believe there are any
further suspects.
DeWolf was discovered dead in
his apartment by a coworker after

he failed to report to his shift at the
Ann Arbor Veterans Affairs Health-
care System. According to reports,
nothing was stolen from DeWolf's
apartment and Ann Arbor Police
Lieutenant Robert Pfannes said in
July that the apartment was "orderly
and valuables appeared to have been
untouched." No firearm was found at
the scene.
The Ann Arbor Police Department
was assisted in. their inquiry by the
Air Force Office of Special Investi-
gations, FBI, the U.S. Marshals Ser-
vice and University Police. In the
immediate aftermath of the homi-
cide, police increased patrols around
the North Ingalls area. AAPD also
offered a $10,000 reward for anyone
with information about the homicide.
Pfannes said Thursday the reward
was not claimed in the investigation.
University President Mary Sue
Coleman concurrently issued a
statement addressing the arrest and
thanking AAPD for their diligence in
continuingthe investigation.
"We hope today's developments
provide some solace to Paul DeWolf's
family and friends, who remain in
our thoughts," Coleman said. "We

University
looks for bids
on Arthur
Miller home
South Division house
would be moved from
current location
By ARIANA ASSAF
DailyStaffReporter
A historical house may be given
a new home, if the University can
find someone to buy it.
Earlier this week; the University
opened bidding on a residence pre-
viouslyinhabited by Arthur Miller,
University alum and Pulitzer Prize-
winning playsvrite, when he was a
student. Miller is known for plays
such as "The ,Crucible," "All My
Sons" and "Death of a Salesman."
Currently, the goal is to secure a
buyer who will remove the entire
house from its foundation at 439 S.
Division Street. Once the house has
been removed, the University plans
to use the space asa parking lot.
Jim Kosteva, the University's
director of community relations,
said some parties have expressed
interest in purchasing the house,
but could not provide details on

said choosing the Victors for
Michigan campaign's $4 billion
goal was a fairly scientific pro-
cess.
First, the University recogniz-
es that it will need to raise more
money than was gathered during
the past campaign, The Michigan
Difference, May said.
Development officers then per-
form a name-by-name analysis of
donors with the potential to give
more than $100,000 - a critical
category that May estimated will
bring the campaign total to about
$3 billion in the approximately
next seven years.

ute.
May said he plans to spend time
on the U.S. coasts courting some
of these billionaires during the
course of the campaign. The Uni-
versity's Board of Regents, along
with May, will travel to New York
City in January in lieu of their
regularly scheduled meeting - a
jaunt that will certainly include
time to engage with potential and
longtime benefactors.
"We'll keep working on them
and we hope we'll become a pri-
ority for them," May said.
Still, he noted that for every

University has
pushed back
against complaints
By ALLANA AKHTAR
Daily StaffReporter
At its meeting Thursday
night, the Ann Arbor City
Council revisited its request

that the University remove
the newly installed digital
billboard located off the East
Stadium Boulevard near the
entrance to Michigan Sta-
dium.
After discussing the dis-
turbance caused by the mar-
quee at previous meetings,
Councilmembers Christo-
pher Taylor (D-Ward 3) and.
Marcia Higgins (D-Ward 4)

proposed an ordinance to
request the University take
down the $2.8 million bill-
board.
The councilmembers said
the billboard violates city
ordinances by projecting
moving, illuminating images
that are distracting to driv-
ers and residents. Taylor said
he'd like to collaborate with
