*eginning this week, the music of
cuador and the sounds of swing bands
ill fill the streets of Ann Arbor, along
ith original artwork from people
round the world, during the 41st Ann
trbor Art Fair.
The city has been busy preparing for
de event for quite a while, considering
eople pack the streets from shoulder
shoulder to see the latest works of
owtown stores, like Urban

xposure.
Lucy Klobs, a University student
vho works in a small business on

sure to us and brings in more
ppointments."
With increased people in the city and
sany streets shut down, traffic creates
problem. Thoutgh some residents

People really learn to appreciate the
us system, and we have worked close-
with the AATA for a shuttle bus sys-
Even with the traffic, Sheldon said
he looks forward to the fair.

The University Athletic
Department will be out of the red
within two years if some changes are
made, Interim Athletic Director Bill
Martin told the University Regents at
their monthly meeting on Thursday.
In Martin's proposed athletic,
department budget, which was
approved by the Regents on Friday,
only prices will be raised this year
for basketball, from $13 to $16 in
the lower section and $10 to $12 in
the gold section. But, football sea-
son-ticket holders may be looking at
a new pricing plan for the 2002 sea-
son.
A $100 seat license fee, to obtain and
keep season ticket seats, "alone wipes
out the deficit," Martin said. "But a
case has to be made to the Michigan
family."

Martin said the $2.6 million deficit
for this year was a result of unforeseen
circumstances, including the loss of
contracts with Nike and TSN football
radio broadcasting as well as a drop in
the sale of University apparel..
The addition of women's water
polo and men's soccer to the list of
varsity sports was also a poor fiscal
decision, Martin said.
"We added two new sports in the past
year we shouldn't have," Martin said,
"but we have them and we're going to
support them."
Regent Larry Deitch (D-Bloomfield
Hills) praised Martin's budget and said
"It's time for a change."
"We're on the right track. We owe
Director Martin a great thanks for
stepping in," Deitch said. "This is
not a man happy talking about red
ink."
The Regents also approved a $1.4

Television has its share of strange
moments. Last Tuesday night the fate
of $1. million rested. on Paddington
Bear's country of origin, and recent
University graduate David Goodman
cracked a little smile. Regis Philbin,
sitting across from Goodman, smiled,
too.
Goodman had gone through the
whole ladder of questions on ABC's
popular game show "Who Wants to be
a Millionaire" without using up a single
lifeline, and now he could take his time,
call a friend, milk some drama in front
of the camera.
In the history of the show, only five
people had won the grand prize. Sitting
in the hotseat, Goodman answered, hes-
itated, and answered again.
Paddington Bear, he said, is from
Peru.
Philbin confirmed his answer, and

"The plan is to
make the money
last,"
- David Goodman
Recent University graduate
under the shower of confetti, under the
tumultuous applause, Goodman
became the sixth person made into an
instant millionaire by the infamous TV
show.
Well, not quite.
Minus state, federal, and other mis-
cellaneous taxes, he gets to keep 56 per-
cent of the winnings - a presumably
healthy sum for an hour's work.
Goodman said he has some spending
plans like buying a house, a car, and a
few trips. But most of it will be invest-
ed and kept for safekeeping.
