honor active students
By MICHELLE BEIZAI
While most University students spend
the bulk of their time working, studying
and partying, those who choose to
contribute time and effort to University
activities are honored at an annual
The Student Achievement Awards,
presented by the University's Office of
Student Services, the Michigan League,
and the Comprehensive Studies
Program, recognize student efforts
"which increase the diversity and
enhance the richness of the student
experience and life on campus or which
benefit the greater community beyond
the University," according to its
THIS YEAR'S ceremony was held in
the Michigan Union Ballroom, the first
time it has been held there. 63
individuals and ten groups were
honored, the largest group ever to be
recognized by the selection committee.
According to Marion Evashevski,
coordinator of the 1984 Achievement
Awards, the selection committee this
year "felt that on a campus of 35,000
there were more than ten that deserve
to be recognized."
Of the groups nominated, seventeen
individuals and three groups were
singled out as recipients of the award.
THE SELECTION of winners was
"as objective as it could be this year,"
said Evashevski. "There were no
names (on the entry forms) - it was
based on a numerical rating system.
There was no open debate as to who was
worthy and who wasn't. It's as fair, as
objective, as it could be, I think."
Nominations for the awards were
submitted by faculty members,
student groups and individuals. The
nominations were reviewed by a
committee that had been appointed by
Vice President for Student Services

things and different things," said

The jury had submitted a written
request during its deliberations early
Friday to hear the taped statement
Defense attorney Donald Ferris said
he was "disappointed" with the jury's
verdict. "I don't think she meant to
shoot (Faber)," he said.
"I don't think the prosecution proved
beyond a reasonable doubt that (Pear-
son) intended to shoot the gun," said
Ferris. Ferris said he intends to file an
appeal after the sentencing.
Ferris was visably depressed, but
said there was nothing he would have
done differently in arguing Pearson's
