Students evacuate MLB
after prank bomb threat

By RACHEL GOTTLIEB
An apparently false bomb threat
left hundreds of students standing in
the cold and delayed 10 a.m. classes
for 20 minutes at the Modern
Languages Building yesterday.
University safety director Leo
Heatley said the threat came at 9:58
a.m. from an unidentified caller who
said the bomb would explode at 10:20
a.m. Heatley said no evacuation was
ordered, but occupants were told that
there might be a bomb in the building
and many stayed outside.
"We get a lot of bomb threats and it
would be impractical to evacuate
every time we got a threat. It would

increase the number of episodes,"
Heatley said.
HE CALLED the episode a prank
but said there will be an investigation.
Some students embraced the bomb
threat as an excuse to go back to bed,
but many waited in the cold until the
10:20 a.m. deadline passed.
Students speculated that the threat
was a prank played by a student who
did not want to go to class.
"I think someone must have had a
exam that they wanted to get out of,"
said Rick Levenberg, an LSA senior.
Frank Geiger, an LSA sophomore,
added, "I think that somebody's
frustrated with finals coming up and
they wanted to disrupt the whole

process of review sessions. They
probably don't want other people to go
to classes."
A few professors chose to remain in
the building because they suspected #
prank.
"There's nobody in there but a few
brave professors who decided to die in
their chairs," said Mark Yaffe, a
Russian teaching assistant.
Prof. Irwin Titunic, who remained
in the MLB while others fled, said "it
seemed like old hat and I had impori
tant things to do and a hot cup of cof-
fee." He added that he was able to
concentrate well in the quiet building
but "had an ear out in case of an ex-
plosion."

MANDELA has been imprisoned
for 21 years for his role in organizing
resistance to the racist policies of the
South African government in the 1950s
and '60s. He served as president of the
African National Congress Youth

League and, was the principal deputy
to African National Congress
president Albert Luthuli.
Despite the political activists im-
prisonment, Holt said, "Nelson Man-
dela remains the leading symbol of
opposition to the racist government in
South Africa."
In his letter, Holt suggested that

Mandela's daughter Zinzi be invited
to accept the award.
Letters of support for the
nomination were sent by two
Democratic representatives to the
U.S. Congress from Michigan,
Howard Wolpe, who chairs the House
Subcommittee on Africa, and George
Crockett.
