in Auto Club

by Matthew Pulliam
The engine of your new Z24 is
purring, ready to take you to top
speed at the blink of an eye. Prepared
to conquer the road, you ease the car
into gear, carefully noting the most
minute response of the resultant
ride. You turn up the stereo, open
the throttle, and shatter the serene
silence of the woods as you blast
through the backroads of Michigan,
all the while carefully evaluating
the car's performance.
This may sound like the experi-
ences of a reviewer for Car &
Driver, but one organization at the
University provides the chance for
students to test drive high perfor-
mance vehicles before they graduate.
The Automotive Industry Club
(AIC), based in the Business School,
is open to students interested in any
aspect of the business of personal
transportation.
Club President Peter
Schwarzbach said, "The club is a
campus-wide organization, and we
have students from several different

schools. Our activities include guest
speakers, tours of places like the
Chrysler Proving Grounds, discus-
sions, and pizza parties. It's de-
signed for people interested in ca-
reers in the auto industry as well as
for car enthusiasts."
"It's changed my life," said LSA
senior Aaron Robinson. "That
sounds melodramatic, but it's true.
I've been doing a lot of automotive
writing because of the Club, and the
people in the industry think it's a
great idea," he said.
Last Sunday, the AIC staged its
annual 160-plus mile road rally test
of new automobiles that fall within
what the group callsthe price range
of a graduating senior, between
$11,000 and $15,000.
The cars are pushed to their lim-
its on a specially plotted course of
high speed, twisting roads in South-
Central Michigan. Cars are evalu-
ated on handling, appearance, price,
gas mileage, and other factors which
are considered in the purchase of a
new vehicle.

The course began at the Business
School parking structure and tra-
versed a large loop of sometimes
treacherous road before returning to
the starting point. Because it rained
the entire weekend, the drivers were
forced to use all of their talents in
navigating wet, hairpin turns at high
speeds.
This year's contenders for best
car for a graduating senior included
the Chevrolet Cavalier Z24, Ford
Escort GT, Nissan Sentra, and the.
Dodge Shadow Convertible. The
overall winner in the competition
this year was the Sentra, but in past
years has included the Geo Storm
and the Acura Integra.
Although the rally tested con-
ventional, affordable cars, the club
often tests and displays sportier
cars. Among these are luxury sedans
such as those made by Lexus and
Infiniti, small sportsters like the
Mazda Miata, and high performance
racers like the Corvette and the new
Acura NSX.

Women commended for work
receive scholarships from CEW

by Purvi Shah
Daily Staff Reporter
The University Center for the
Education of Women (CEW)
awarded its 21st annual CEW
Scholarships to 30 women students
last night.
In order to qualify for the schol-

an
(upstairs)
VIIT

arships, the women have to be out of
school for three consecutive years
prior to their enrollment in college.
Gloria Gibson, a recipient of a
1989 CEW scholarship, commented
in her speech that she was old com-
pared to other students when she
started her studies at the
University.
However, she added, "I am more
than older now, I am richer. I dis-
covered something sitting out there
just as you are. What I developed be-
cause of my scholarship has been
empowerment, self-assertion, and
passion for knowledge."
CEW scholarships carry a mone-
tary value of $750 to $3,000 and are
awarded on the basis of both aca-
demic record and financial need. The
scholarship amount given to each
woman varies based on her budget
and the amount of money CEW has.
This year an estimated 190

women from the University applied
for the CEW Scholarships.
Two Mary Malcomson Raphael
Fellowships were also awarded,
Unlike the CEW scholarships, for
which women submit applications,
the Fellowships are awarded t(
LSA graduate students in the social
sciences or humanities based on de-
partment nominations.
Patricia Wulp, associate director
of CEW, stated that these scholar-
ships help to show that the
University appreciates the achieve-
ment of women who have resumed
their education.
"They do provide some money
It's also a recognition and an hono
to be considered quite special,"
Wulp said. "That does all kinds of
good things for one's morale."
Since 1970, when the CEW
scholarships started, 603 women
have received awards.
