During the spring and summer
months, student canvassers and vol -
unteers continue their efforts to
raise funds for the Public Research
Interest Research Group in Michi -
gan. These funds are instrumental
to the interest groups' survival.

Over 50 students have joined the

with PIRGIM could help to make
the world a better place in the fu -

Field Manager and LSA senior.
However, PIRGIM may not be
for everyone. "There are a lot of
good people working there, but I'm
just not cut out to face constant
ejection," said LSA junior Jeff
Aikin, who quit PIRGIM after three
days of work.

The Archdiocese of Detroit has a job to do.
We know some people who are facing tough
choices in life who need good advice. We know
some people who are facing no choices who still
need hope. We know a lot of great kids who need a
place to be kids, and maybe someone to bring the
hal or the music. We know a few older people who
are going to die whether or not someone is there to
bring them peace.
All over the Archdiocese there are people who
need a place to count their blessings and share
their sorrows-people who need a hand, or a
shoulder to lean on, or sometimes just an ear.
At Sacred Heart Seminary we're teaching
young men to use the hands and shoulders and
ears and hearts God gave them. It's a great
education. A college degree. Graduate work.
We'll give you up to eight years to decide you
really want to be a priest before we ask you to
do it for good.
Sure, the hours are long. But they're flexible.
And if you come to work here, you'll get rich in
