The game against the Blue Demons is the Wolver-
es' first in the post-Fab Five era. The last remaining
embers of the ballyhooed recruiting class -Jimmy
ing and Ray Jackson - graduated last year.
Taylor, for one,is looking forward to starting fresh.
"The chemistry is a lot better this year," he said.
Last year we were lacking chemistry."

Sophomore forward Willie Mitchell looks for a rebound against Athletes in Action two weeks ago. Mitchell and
the Michigan basketball team tip off their season against DePaul tonight in the Preseason NIT at Crisler Arena.

While the Michigan coaches have not seen this
year's Blue Demon squad, they are at least somewhat
familiar with most of the players.
Two DePaul players - Charles Gelatt and Juan
Gay - played junior college ball at Barton County
(Kan.) Community College last season with Wolver-
ine recruit Brandon Hughes.
Michigan assistant coach Brian Dutcher saw both
Gelatt and Gay play in high school and in summer
"Gelatt is a big, strong inside player," Dutcher said.
"He signed with Syracuse originally out of high
school. Gay could easily be a starter. He will be a

starter before the year is over."
Fisher won't say whom he plans to start against the
Blue Demons - or even if he has definite plans.
Taylor is a lock to start, and guard Dugan Fife and
forward Maceo Baston will likely get the nod as well.
Guard Travis Conlan and swingman Jerod Ward are
the best bets to fill out the lineup.
"I like where we have come," Fisher said. "I like
what we have done. Defensively, we know what we
want to do a little bit more. If we don't play well I
would be shocked if it was because of lack of effort.
If anything, it will be because we are trying too

WASHINGTON - As President
Clinton and Republican leaders traded
insults and threats, 800,000 federal
workers across the country were or-
dered home yesterday morning when
the budget standoff between the White
House and the Congress left much of
the government without funds to oper-
ate all but essential services.
Both sides dug in and made almost
no progress in resolving their differ-
ences as harsh rain pelted the Capitol
and overnight polls indicated that Re-
publicans may have taken a dangerous
gamble in challenging Clinton.
After White
House officials and
congressional bud-
get leaders held a
gloomy meeting on
Capitol Hill yester-
day morning that
offered little hlope A
for a breakthrough,
Clinton infuriated
Republicans by
strolling into the
White House brief- Clinton
ing room and de-
livering a confrontational, seven-minute
"Unfortunately, Republican leaders
in Washington have put ideology ahead
of common sense and shared values in
their pursuit of a budget plan," Clinton
said, taking no questions from the press.
Clinton's remarks - and the Repub-
licans' angry re-
sponse - sug-
gested that the
shutdown could
last for days. A sec-x
ond Capitol HillY
meeting late yes-
terday also made
little progress.
"We are at an
impasse," White
House Chief of
Staff Leon Panetta Gingrich
told reporters as he
left the meeting.
Indeed, House Speaker Newt
Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Republicans
would not send a new stopgap spending
bill until later this weekwhen they
complete work on a seven-year bal-
anced budget that the President has also
promised to veto. The budget plan is the
crux of the dispute between the White
House and Congress, with Republicans
hoping to gain a commitment to bal-
ance the budget in seven years as the
price for letting the government con-
tinue operating.
Pushing every partisan hot button
likely to rile the congressional leaders,
and quickly succeeding in doing so,
Clinton blamed the impasse squarely
on Republican intransigence and mis-
guided budget-balancing ideas.
Gingrich and Senate Majority Leader
Bob Dole (R-Kan.) stormed into the
Senate news studio just minutes after
Clinton's speech and delivered equally
barbed attacks on the President.
Gingrich, who has publicly said all
yearthat he relished a fightwith Clinton
that would lead to a shutdown, com-
plained, "It is very difficult to know
how to proceed with so many factual
errors in one statement." He added that
it was "tragic to have a president of the
United States so misinformed."
The two leaders then refused to take
questions as well. Gingrich later told
reporters that there was no chance he
would agree to meet with the President
yesterday after his televised attack.

reps: 7-year
plan -needed
ing yesterday morning, hundreds of
federal civilian workers were fur-
loughed in Michigan, including
most of those working in veterans
administration services or at na-
tional parks or federal museums
such as the Gerald R. Ford Museum
in Grand Rapids.
Rep. Lynn Rivers (D-Ann Ar-
bor) was so upset by the furloughs
that she decided to give back her
pay for the days federal workers
must miss their pay.
All congressional offices also got
a notice to furlough personnel who
were not essential to their legisla-
tive duties. Each office was left to
interpret the notice. Rep. Fred Upton
(R-St. Joseph) and Sen. Carl Levin
(D-Mich.) decided all their employ-
ees were needed during the legisla-
tive impasse.
Rivers adopted a strict interpre-
tation of the notice, sending home
75 percent of her employees and
shutting down her district offices.
House Republicans from Michi-
gan said yesterday that the key to
passing a temporary spending bill
that would cancel the government
shutdown is President Clinton's
agreement to balance the budget in
seven years.
After that, the lawmakers say,
the budget wrangling between Re-
publican leaders and Clinton can
turn into negotiations in which ev-
erything is on the table.
"All we want is for the President
to agree to balance the budget in
seven years based on (numbers that
can be verified by) the Congres-
sional Budget Office, and then our
door is open for negotiations on the
best way to do that," said Rep. Nick
Smith (R-Addison), a leader of the
House Debt Limit Coalition.
The temporary spending measure
was necessary to avert a partial gov-
ernment shutdown yesterday be-
cause only three of 13 spending bills
have been signed into law to fund
government agencies for the fiscal
year that began six weeks ago.
Clinton refused to approve the
temporary measure keeping gov-
ernment running through Dec. 1
because other GOP legislative ini-
tiatives were added on to the bill
including an increase in monthly
Medicare premiums.
But Republican House members
from Michigan interviewed by The
Associated Press repeatedly said they
would be willing to negotiate on any
items once Clinton agrees to balanc-
ing the budget in their time frame.
"I think the bottom line is that we
have to have the commitment to
balance the budget in seven years,"
Rep. Dave Camp (R-Midland) said
"Everything is on the table once
the White House agrees that we are
going to balance the budget by the
year 2002," Upton said.
Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Holland)
said the budget could not be bal-
anced without reigning in spending
on entitlement programs - which
account for about half of all federal
