This Day in Daily History

Student group signs on Diag stolen, vandalized

Dec. 3, 1982 — A number of destroyed banners and signs promoting various groups on campus caused concern among students.

Many students speculated that competition between groups resulted in the destruction of these banners.

The Union of Students for Israel reported a stolen banner from the Diag. The University Activities Center’s banner advertising the production of “Bye, Bye Birdie” was also reported missing.

Student leaders expressed concerns because of the time spent on these banners, as well as the material costs put into creating them.



An article on Page 1 of Wednesday’s edition of the Daily should have quoted former Michigan Student Assembly Vice President Jennifer Nathan as saying she had neglected her studies for seven semesters.

An article on Page 1A of yesterday’s Daily should have said Joe Jewell is a native of Stevensville, Mich.
