Known as "the varsity sport of the mind,"
Intramural College Bowl is a contest requiring
quick thinking and teamwork.
Two teams of four players face off, answering
trivia questions in areas such as current events,
fine arts, sports, popular culture, science and
geography. Some questions can be answered by
only one playeron a team, while others allow the
entire team to confer.
"There's such a wide variety of questions that
everyone's interests are represented," said Maya
Kobersy, who will participate in College Bowl
for the second time this year.
David Frazee, manager of Michigan Aca-
demic Competitions, says team cooperation and
good chemistry between members are essential
components for success. "There's a real chal-
lenge of really making that synergy work" he
Frazee said one of his favorite parts of Col-
lege Bowl is the preparation. "What it forces
you to do is actually to engage and pay attention
to your world."
The College Bowl Co. and the Association of
College Unions-International encourage any
interested student to participate. The University
typically draws the largest tournament in the
country, with more than 60 teams.
Most teams are "groups of friends who come
together to have fun while testing themselves
against the brightest and quickest at the Univer-
sity," said a representative from the University
Participants can also register alone and be
assigned to a team. When UAC co-chair Anne
Mitchell first signed up for the IM games as an
individual, she met many people with similar
interests. "The friendships I've made have been
by far the best part," she said.
This year a Greek division for fraternity and
sorority members will be added as well as a
championship division for those who wish to
subsequently compete at the intercollegiate
The IM preliminaries will be held from Sept.
23-26. Each team is guaranteed to play in at
least five matches, while the best-performing
teams will advance to the quarter-finals, semi-
finals and then finals. Prizes will be awarded
for finalists, and also for teams with the most
For those who wish to continue academic
contests after the IM tournament, open practices
will be held to select a College Bowl varsity
team to compete on an intercollegiate level.
UAC also will send interested students to vari-
ous intercollegiate academic contests at schools
such as the University of Pennsylvania and

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP)-A Michi-
gan man charged in the 1993 slaying of
three people, including an 8-year-old
quadriplegic boy, tried to make it look
like a robbery had taken place in the
Maryland home where the bodies where
found, prosecutors said yesterday.
James Perry, a self-described "spiri-
tual adviser," is charged with conspiracy
and three counts of first-degree murder
in the deaths of Mildred Horn, her quad-
riplegic son, Trevor, andthe boy's nurse
Perry, who went on trial yesterday in
Montgomery County Circuit Court,
could be sentenced to death if con-
Prosecutors ran videotapes taken both
inside and outside the Silver Spring,
Md., home of Mildred Horn on the
morning of March 3, 1993, showing
articles of clothing and furniture strewn
throughout the first floor, and a base-
ment window which was pried open.
The alarm from Trevor Horn's oxygen
machine could be heard ringing in the
Prosecutors alleged Perry, of Detroit,
was hired by Mildred Horn's ex-hus-
band, Lawrence, to commit the mur-
ders so he could collect nearly $2 mil-.
lion awarded to his son.

accident at Children's Hospital in Wash-
ington that left him bedridden, legally

CINCINNATI (AP) - A federal
appeals court on Tuesday threw out a
ruling that would have blocked the
Michigan High School Athletic As-
sociation frompenalizing schools that
allowed overage students to partici-
pate in sports.
The case before the 6th U.S. Circuit
Court ofAppeals involved students who
suedthe Rochester Community Schools
and the Grosse Pointe Public Schools.

zation prohibits participation in high
school sports by students who turn 19

three counts of

In her opening statement to the jury,
Montgomery County Assistant State's
Attorney Teresa Whalen called the
murders "brutal and methodical," and
accused Perry and Lawrence Horn of
"doing what nature would not do," in
killing the boy.
Whalen, however, acknowledged
there was no direct physical evi-
dence linking either man to the
crime scene. But she promised to
introduce "hundreds of documents
and wiretaps" of telephone calls
between the two men.
Defense attorney Roger Galvin ac-
cused the prosecutor of "attempting to
use inference after inference after infer-
ence," to prove her case.
James Tamez, a night clerk at the
Days Inn hotel in Gaithersburg, Md.,
testified that Lawrence Horn, who lives
in Los Angeles, stayed at the hotel three
different times between April and Au-
gust of 1992, while Perry registered
there twice - on May 22, 1992, and
