Asbestos dust remained in the air
almost three weeks after construction
workers removed the asbestos in-
sulation from pipes in Lorch Hall, ac-
cording to test results obtained by the
Daily yesterday,.
University employees who work in
the building say they are upset because
they were exposed to the asbestos
without being notified it was being
removed. And although the amounts of
asbestos in the air are considered safe
by government standards, University
employees said that levels of the sub-
stance were probably higher during the
period of the removal.
THE INSULATION was removed
during the last week in October, accor-
ding to Tom Schlaff, the University's
project engineer overseeing renovation
of Lorch Hall.
Gary Monroe, manager of the
University's Occupational Safety and
Environmental Health Department
said his office was not notified that as-
bestos had been removed until after the
workers had finished that phase of the
project.
The project's contractor, could not be
reached for comment.
HOWEVER, despite the fact that the
asbestos levels were below the levels
required for a violation in state law
some Lorch office workers say thaL
they are upset because no one informed
that that the construction workers were
removing the asbestos from the
building's pipes.
According to Schlaff, doors connec-
ting the building's north wing, site of
the construction, were locked to

prevent Lorch Hall workers from en-
tering the area. The wing was also
taped off and signs were posted, he
said.
Deborah. Jones, a CAAS secretary
who works in Room 407 of Lorch said
that she had no idea the asbestos was.
being removed from the building. She
said she decided to ask the construction
workers what was happening when she
noticed that her throat and skin became
dry and she began to sneeze. She said
she and other workers experienced
headaches.
THE' UNIVERSITY "didn't tell us
that the exposure is taking place," she
said, explaining that she had no idea the
construction workers were removing
the insulation because she did not see
many of them wearing protective
masks or protective clothing.
"Asbestos is a carcinogen, period,"
said Adrienne Garcia, a CAAS
secretary who also works in the
building. She added that she is concer-
ned about "having to confront a.
problem" years from now because of
her exposure to asbestos.
Garcia said that she had no idea the
construction workers were ripping out.
the asbestos. "I really am concerned
and more upset than anything because I
think it's been a slap in my face," she
said.
HOWEVER, according to Schlaff, the
Lorch Hall workers were not harmed
by the insulation removal -because ther
asbestos was bagged and wetted down
to keep it from flying in the air. He said
bags were taken out a Tappan Street

with wire reports.
An imposter who Ann Arbor police say posed as a
University law student last year will be brought back
to Michigan next week to face charges of parole
violations and forgery, according to the Michigan
Department of Corrections.
William Douglas Street, who among other things
has posed as a Detroit Tiger and a Michigan football
player, had been paroled for a one to 20 year sentence
for extortion. He was serving his sentence at
Southern Michigan Prison at Jackson.
HE BROKE parole and went to New Haven, Conn.,
where he was later charged with forging a check
while posing as a Yale medical student. He is curren-
tly awaiting trial in the New hven Co'rection Cen-
ter.
When Street is turned over to Michigan's correc-

tions department "sometime before next Thursday,"
he will be held at Jackson prison to face charges of
violating his parole, said Peter Chatfield, ad-
ministrative assistant at the state corrections depar-
tment..
Chatfield declined to comment on the charges.
Street may also be charged with forging a Univer-
sity law student's $600 check last year. Charges are
still pending, but Washtenaw County Prosecuter
William Delhey sees "no reason why Street won't be
prosecuted."
DELHEY SAYS Street will be charged on two coun-
ts: forgery, which carries a maximum 14-year sen-
tence, and "uttering and publishing," the actual
passing of the check, which also carries a maximum.
14-year sentence.

Tag Days raise

big bucks for sick kids

\ IIll1$

By LAURA BISCHOFF
When you go to class today, be sure to bring your
wallet.
On virtually every street corner near campus and on
the Diag, you will see the begging buckets and bright
tags marking the kick off of the 57th Annual Galens
Tag Dags Street Drive.
THE DRIVE to raise money for several educational
and recreational programs geared toward sick
children in Washtenaw County will involve 160 Univer-
sity medical students this year, strategically located
around campus and in area malls.
"They're not too aggressive because they have to
ask, but they bug me because they're planted all over
the place. There are swarms of them," said LSA
sophomore Joanne Goodwin.
"We try to arrange it so that nobody can cross a
street or go one block without hitting Galens," said
Tom Wiedrich, a senior medical student.
LAST YEAR the Galens Medical Society raised
$57,000 during the two-day drive, which always coin-
cides with the opening of the Christmas season. Every
Galens member collected $300 to $400 during the drive,
Wiedrich said, adding that he netted $1,000 in a four-
hour sint.
Drive organizers are hoping to top last year's total,
according to publicity co-chairperson Lori Weber.
"Washtenaw County people have been tremendously
supportive of Galens... and the support from Michigan
