A panel of seven Univer-

86-page report analyzing the
1967 Detroit Race Riot in which
police raided an unlicensed
bar and sparked violence with
patrons and other locals.
The debacle got so out ofhand
that Michigan Governor George
Romney enlisted the help of the
National Guard to restore order.
These forces were ultimately
bolstered by paratroopers, per

the scenes look at the politics of exists today.
"Some of the biggest fans did
not go to Michigan," he said.
"Some of the biggest donors didn't
go to Michigan. It's an amazing
expression of our values."
He argued football is one of the
University's most important com-
mon threadsbetween all students,
adding that game day is perhaps
one of the most complete reflec-
tions ofstudent life.
"When you take a seat (in
Michigan Stadium), we don't care
about your race, ethnicity, nation-
ality, your age, gender, econom-
ics," Bacon said."Allwe care about
is, when the band gets to 'Hail,'
you're going to jam your fist in the
air. Do that at the right time, you
are one of us."
Bacon stressed that both in and
outside of the University Athletic
Department, the main goal to
strive for in the University setting
is moral steadiness. He said an
icon like former Michigan football
coach Bo Schembechler, who led
the program between 1969 and
1989, embodied this goal - and
that students who weren't even
born when Schembechler retired
still knew his name and remem-
bered him as a leader, not neces-
sarily as a football coach.
"That, to me, is the Michigan
Difference," Bacon said. "We want
to win, we expect to win, but the
truth matters to us. If you have a
chance to pursue the truth and
you fail to do so, you have not only
lost your personal integrity, you
have not only lost your personal;
self respect, dare I say it, you've
lost your soul. This entire Univer-
sity is based on one principle, and
that's the truth."
On that note, Bacon also.
addressed the issue of continu-
ing monetization of college foot-.

directors and coaches are getting
paid more than university presi-
dents, which he sees as a problem.

Following a study abroad in northwestern India, LSA senior Kim Deering participates in Langar on the Diag Friday.
Students host event inspired
by study abroad experience
By TANYA MADHANI
For the Daily
Amid the rushing of students,
voter registration representa-
tives and the odd firebrand
preacher, 13 students stood on
the Diag Friday with baskets
of food to bring a piece of their
study abroad in India back to
Ann Arbor - but not without a
bit of controversy.
Over the summer, these stu-
dents worked on a GIEU pro-
gram in Amritsar, India, where
they participated in langar
events at the Golden Temple -
a historic Sikh religious site and
one of India's most noted land-
marks. Traditionally, a langar is
a meal served at the end of a wor-
ship ceremony and emphasizes
equality between participants
regardless of their social class,
status or religious beliefs, LSA
junior Andrew Vu, one of the
event participants, said.
While abroad, the students,
Alearned how organizers at the
Golden Temple feed -around
60,000 people per day in the
complex'slangarhalls - adaunt-
ing economic and logistical task,
to say the least. Back in Ann
Arbor, the participants settled
on a more modest goal.
"We're trying to recreate that
on a much smaller scale," LSA
senior Jenny Chuang said. "So
now we have a 100,000 people
but I think we made up to 3,000
The students, all undergradu-
ates, were involved in every
aspect of the preparation: buying
produce, cutting the food, cook-
ing it, serving it and eating it.
Chuang said she hoped the
event encouraged people to look
beyond just the free food and
instead think about how they
could work to help others.
"We treat people differently
depending on where we see
them, but we really shouldn't,"
Chuang said. "It takes seeing an
example to really cement that in
instead of theoretically thinking
that. For the average person that
walks through the Diag I hope
they ask'Why are you guys here?
What's been going on?' and kind
of learn what we were able to
learn from the Golden Temple."
The wraps served on the Diag
riday were completely veg-
etarian, with ingredients such
as chickpeas, cabbage and mint
chutney. Langar food in the
Golden Temple and other Sikh
temples is generally vegetarian.
"A lot of people think being
vegetarian is extremely limit-
ing," Vu. said. "It's not true....
Once they know that it's vegetar-
ian and that it's filling and it's
nutritional, maybe they'll have a
different perspective on things."
The trip was chaperoned by
Engineering Prof. Jasprit Singh
and his wife from June 4 to July
4. Singh said a langar meal is pre-
pared to break down barriers,
which he hoped would do the
same at the University.
"The challenge we face glob-
ally is not that people don't have
food, it's that we have barriers,"
Singh said. "That people don't
have opportunities to expand
their horizon, so many barriers
are inthe way. This eventis away
to gently work on bringing peo-
ple together so they realize that
people who are different from
each other are still the same. So
food is the ideal way. The event is
to build a community and food is
a medium to do that."
The wraps were made with
help from more than iS volunteers
at the kitchen of the Plymouth
Gurdwara Sahib, a Sikh temple
about 20 miles from Ann Arbor.
