CRISP to drop

Students returning to school this fall
may be surprised when they go to
CRISP to change their schedules: The
long drop/add lines won't be stretching
out on the first floor of Lorch Hall
anymore. They'll be squeezing into the
basement of Angell Hall.
The move of the computerized class
registration office, which will occur in
August during freshmen orientation, is
expected to take three days, said Tom
Karunas, an assistant registrar. The
first day will be spent moving half of
the printers and computer terminals
over to the new location, setting up the
equipment, and testing the system to
assure that it is functional..
THE NEW OFFICE will begin
operation on the next day and by the
third day the old CRISP office will shut
down permanently and the remaining
equipment will be moved to the new

corner of Angell Hall including three
classrooms, the old Computer and

Library and a room which housed
several computer terminals will be
converted into the new CRISP. Plans
include knocking out walls, shutting off
some doors, removing a heater, adding
new doors and a drop ceiling, and
fastening bars to the floor in the hall to
"Students have to realize that there is
not enough room for them to come early
to their registration appointments -
there's just no place to line them up to
wait," Karunas said.
The new CRISP area will not be able
to accommodate more than two appoin-
tment lines at a time. Karunas said in

There are only eight teams left with a shot at becoming
college baseball's national champion, and for the fourth time
in five years Michigan is one of them.
The Wolverines earned the trip to the College World Series
in Omaha, Nebraska, by capturing the rain-lengthened
Mideast regional. A 4-3 thriller over Central Michigan on
Wednesday culminated a three-game tournament sweep for
Michigan. Michigan (43-18) is ranked eighth by Collegiate
Baseball magazine and will open against third-ranked Cal St.
Fullerton (61-19) at 8:10 p.m. tonight. The game will be
broadcast live on ESPN (cable channel J).
LAST YEAR Michigan finished third in the CWS. Shortstop
Barry Larkin, who had five hits in 18 at-bats in last year's
tournament, feels the Wolverines are ready to take on the
cream of the crop.
"We're starting to peak now," said Larkin, the Big Ten's
most valuable player. "We're a scrappy team that can come
from behind. Last year we got out on top of teams; we were
more powerful. This year we rely more on execution and
"When we began the season nobody thought that we'd be
where we are now," said head coach Bud Middaugh. "This
club has done something that we couldn't do two years ago -
win tournaments on the road."
MIDDAUGH referred to his 1982 club which finished 44-10
and was believed by many to be his strongest club.
Ironically, it was Middaugh's only Michigan team which
didn't reach Omaha. That team was eliminated from the Big
Ten tournament at Illinois in three games.
"This is the first year since I've been here that we've had to
win the regional tournament on the road," said Middaugh.
"That's a real tribute to the kids. That's a feather in their
