City prepares
itself for Art
''air's crowds,
traff'ic
By Brian Campbell
Daily Staff Reporter
Ann Arbor residents, along with
scores of visitors, will soon flood the
city streets for the annual Ann Arbor
Art Fair, which begins today. The four-
Oy event brings in more than a thou-
sand artists and attracts half a million
people.
"I'm looking forward to (the art
fairs)," said Ann Arbor Mayor Ingrid
Sheldon. "It's that exciting time of mid-
summer; the signal that summer is
almost over."
To relieve the congestion of down-
town traffic, the Ann Arbor
#ansportation Authority (AATA) will
e running shuttle buses to the art fairs
from Briarwood Mall and Pioneer High
School. Liz Nowland-Margolis, from
the AATA, said, "Pioneer is usually
filled by noon each day and Briarwood
depends on the day, but every spot is
eventually taken."
Shuttles will depart every 15 min-
utes, and the fare is $2 for round trip
and $1 each way. The AATA will also
be running a trolley service between
*e art fairs for $50. Nowland-
Margolis added that students will be
able to use their M-Cards for the bus
fares.
Downtown parking policies will
remain the same and parking ticket
officers will patrol the streets as usual,
but visitors are encouraged by the
AATA to make use of the shuttle ser-
vices.
Sergeant Deborah Ceo of the Ann
rbor Police Department (AAPD) said
crime during the Art Fair is usually
very low.
"You'd think that crime would
increase, but it doesn't. We have an
occasional shoplifter, but that happens
on any day. The biggest issues are lost
children and lost grown-ups," she said.
The AAPD puts additional officers
on assignment to patrol the Art Fair.
When asked if the University construc-
on will be a problem for public safety,
eo said probably not, but that deliver-
ies by major trucks will be restricted, as
congestion is her main worry.

Regents hear options
for Medical Center

By Jennifer Harvey
and Katie Wang
Daily News Editors
As the health care market continues to
evolve under the demands of managed
care, the University Board of Regents
invited experienced health care attorneys
to its July meeting to explore options for
the University Medical Center.
A recommendation for restructuring
is scheduled to be delivered to the
regents at their September meeting,
said Homer Neal, interim University
president.
"We can adopt one of two stategies:
expand or reduce the Medical Center to
a level at which it is self-sufficient"
Neal said.
"We want to have this done by
September or October," said Regent
Philip Power (D-Ann Arbor). "We have

total confidence in the ability of our
interim president to guide us through it."
Attorney Geoffrey Shields, who has
worked on more than 200 hospital
restructuring projects, laid out the ben-
efits and drawbacks of a variety of
changes the regents could make to the
Medical Center and Medical School.
"I'm here to offer you a look at struc-
tures that may be able to make the
University able to compete in the fast-
changing medical world," Shields said.
"There is a pressure out there to cram
down costs."
Shields, who works for a Chicago
law firm, said an outside perspective is
often needed in restructuring cases
because "it's easier for someone outside
to see solutions."
The move to restructure comes on

Big Ten teams, Rose Bowl join
championship bowl alliance

By Will McCahill
Daily Sports Editor
The Big Ten and the Rose Bowl. In
the lexicon of college football, those
two entities have gone hand in hand
since 1902.
Not for much longer, though.
Starting in 1999, the Rose Bowl, in
Pasadena, Calif., will join the so-called
"bowl alliance," which matches the top
two college football teams in one bowl
game on a rotating basis.
ABC Sports President Steve
Bornstein and representatives of sever-
al major conferences - including Big
Ten Commissioner Jim Delany -
made the announcement yesterday in a
teleconference.
The agreement will bring the Big Ten
and Pacific-10 Conferences into the
alliance, from which they had previous-
ly been excluded. Under the current
agreements, the two conferences'
champions are obligated to play in the
Rose Bowl, regardless of the champi-

ons' national rankings. If a team from
either conference had finished ranked
either first or second - which would
have occurred had Michigan not defeat-
ed Ohio State last season and allowed
the Buckeyes to end the regular season
ranked No. 2 - they would have been
prohibited from competing in a nation-
al title game.
The new agreement between ABC
Sports and a number of major confer-
ences, including the Big 12, Atlantic
Coast and Southeastern Conferences,
will make the Rose Bowl one of four
major alliance contests. It, along with
the Fiesta, Orange and Sugar Bowls,
will host a national championship con-
test on a rotating basis, with the Rose
Bowl hosting the title game in 2002, its
centennial year
The Big Ten will not give up its
Pasadena connection altogether, how-
ever. According to SEC commissioner
Roy Kramer, the Big Ten and Pac-l10

By a vote of 6-1, the University
Board of Regents approved and adopt-
ed the 1996-97 General Fund budget
proposal of $796.7 million at its July
meeting on Friday. This means students
will face a modest tuition increase of 3
-. 5 percent, depending on their class
and residency status.
The increase is the lowest since 1980,
with the exception of 1984.
Regent Andrea -
Fischer-Newman
(R-Ann Arbor)
was the only
regent to vote
against the tuition
proposal. Regent
Nellie Varner (D-
Detroit) was
absent.
Newman also
abstained from Machen
voting on the
budget. "I like the budget," Newman
said. "I just don't like the way it was
funded."
Newman said she voted against the
tuition increase because she is "trying
to send a message." She said the only
way the University will be recognized

She said she would have preferred
across-the-board increases in tuition,
without a lower increase being given to
lower-division in-state students.
Lower-division in-state residents will
face a 3 percent increase, while all other
undergraduate students will face a 5
percent increase.
"I feel it is inappropriate to charge
different rates," Newman said.
Newman said she has difficulty con-
tinually placing higher costs on out-of-
state students. "We don't want to price
ourselves out of the market for good
out-of-state students"
She also spoke adamantly against
the 9-percent financial aid increase.
"That's a big raise," Newman said.
"No one has shown me why."
Provost J. Bernard Machen said the
financial aid allocation needed to
increase in order to allow students to
deal with the increase in tuition, which
in turn was needed to fund higher oper-
ating costs incurred by the University.
"Financial aid isn't simply pegged by
inflation," Machen said.
Interim University President Homer
Neal said this year's financial aid
