SPRING
Continued from Page 1
Thousands of students, like
Luther, will forego the usual play-
time at the beach to immerse them-
selves in the University's summer
classes.
While some students said they need
to complete a writing requirement or
want to ease their courseload for next
year, others said there are additional
reasons to stay in Ann Arbor.
LSA senior Joe Casey said he
enjoys the off-season campus atmos-
phere. "Ann Arbor is not a bad place
to be in the summer, the weather is
good and the girls dress nice," he
said.
Hernan Munoz, an LSA senior,
said there are both advantages and
disadvantages to taking classes dur-
ing the spring and summer terms.
"Taking classes in the summer
gives you more time to concentrate on
the work," Munoz said, "but the
courseload is more intensive."
Economics professor Tom Bogart

"If you miss one lecture, you're
already a week behind."

said the accelerated pace may be the
students' toughest adjustment to the
spring schedule, adding that "at a
university like this, there are a lot of
smart and dedicated students. They
expect to work hard."
Some students said the increased
intensity of the classes often over-
whelms the temptation to relax on the
Diag.
LSA senior Scherrie Johnson said
attending classes is crucial for students
who don't want to fall behind.
"We cover one week of material
per lecture. The opportunity cost of
skipping is too big. If you miss one
lecture, you're already a week
behind." Johnson said.
A smaller student population also
bring a less hectic atmosphere to the

downtown area, which can also mean
a decrease in profit to local business-
es.
Dominick Telemaco, manager of
New York Pizza Depot, estimated that
sales decrease about 30 percent in the
summer.
"We advertise a little more, but
business still goes down," Telemaco
said.
Randy Lucas, a store manager at
Bivouac, an outdoors equipment and
apparel store, said the management
shifts its target demographics to
adjust to changing market condi-
tions.
"People who usually stay away
from Ann Arbor during the school
year because of the traffic are more
likely to come around," Lucas said.

The College of Engineering will also receive funding
for the Tauber Manufacturing Institute, its joint venture
with the School of Business Administration. The
Institute sponsors interdisciplinary education and
research in manufacturing.
Funds from the pledge will also aid in the renovation
of the Samuel Trask Dana Building as well as continue
Ford's support for the University's visual and perform-
ing arts programs.

Physics Department Chair Ctirad Uher said the funds
assigned to the College of Literature, Science and the
Arts will be used to produce a winter lectureship in the
physics department.
Uter said he hopes the financial support will allow
this lectureship to be as distinguished as the Ta-You Wu
lectureship traditionally held during the fall term.
"With the support, we will be able to bring Nobel lau-
reates, or speakers of that caliber to the University," he
said.
Uher said he anticipates the addition to enliven the
environment of the department and plans for the speak-
er to be chosen within the next few months.

A bunch of drunk high-school stu-
dents driving around Pioneer High
School's parking lot is usually not an
event the Ann Arbor Police Department
and Mother Against Drunk Driving
want to encourage.
But on Saturday afternoon, the
AAPD gladly watched on as Pioneer
students had an opportunity to expe-
rience drunk driving with the help
of "fatal vision goggles," designed
to simulate a 0.17 blood alcohol
level.
Students wore the goggles as they
rode around on golf carts through a
track set up with cones.
The event, sponsored by the
AAPD's Police On Wheels for
Education and Recreation, provided
many activities for the high school stu-
dents to learn the dangers of mixing
alcohol and the road.
PO.WE.R. Officer Sean Slay said
the golf carts serve as the most benefi-
cial activity for the students.
"The golf carts give kids a hands-
on experience of being drunk and to
see how it distorts your vision," Slav
said.
"It snakes them think - what if these
cones were people" he added.
Although Slay said that Saturday's
rain may have kept some students away,
he said he was still happy to see some
come out.
Pioneer first-year student Bryan
Lancaster, who knocked down almost
every other cone, said that driving on
the course taught him a very important
lesson.
"I learned what drunk driving must
be like,' Lancaster said.
Michigan basketball player Louis

Bullock and football player an Gol
also attended the event to encourag
students to be aware of the dangers c
drinking and driving
Bullock said POWE.R's event ma
help students when they have to n
future choices.
"You can prevent a lot of bad thing
froni happening if you can just get pee
ple to be smart about decisions,
Bullock said, adding that prom time i
just around the corner.
Bullock added that colleges all ove
the state have had far too many alcohol
related accidents and was glad to se
PO.WE.R. trying to get involved wit
the students.
Bullock said he has been a mienttse
three Pioneer students this past va
which is how he heard about the event
But the golf carts were not the onil
things to make students thintk twi
about driving while drunk.
A car involved in a drunken dri
ving accident donated by Diehl Auta
and a coffin and hearse displa:
donated by Muehlig Funeral Chape
were on display for the students t<
see the possible results of dri
while intoxicated.
One of the University Hospitals
Survival Flight helicopters was also a
Pioneer. Students climbed inside to se
what happens during a survival flighi
emergency.
John Bullen, a registered nurse an
an emergency medical technician fo
survival flight said he thought "injIr'
prevention is a big part of caring fo
people,"
Slay also said prevention is the#
medicine.
"We try to take a pro-active approac
versus having officers hiding in th
streets trying to bust kids"
