Sometimes I convice myself that
I don't believe in God at all. He is
just man's creation. He answers the
questions. The ones that drive us to
insanity. Who put us here? Why did
he put us here? When we die, what
happens to us? Could we really die
into nothingness? Sometimes I
laugh at man's need to have all the
unanswerable questions answered.
And yet I also find myself praying
to God. Sometimes I think there
has to be a being up there. There
just has to be. So who am I to
Perhaps I sit in the service
hoping that one day I will be able
to rise above the whole
congregation, like the cantor, and
the fact that rows of mouths are
reading responsively, together, in
even tones, will mean nothing to
me. Perhaps I sit hoping that one
day I, too, will be exultant and
really believe that there is a being
watching over me-That this being
is going to make sure that after I
die my soul will live-that I won't
be so much rotten flesh slowly
turning into soil.
I doubt that will ever happen.

"Our general fund just doesn't
have the capacity," he said,
estimating it would cost $10
million to build a new structure.
One possibility, he said, would be
to draw money from other dorms.
But such a move wouldebe a
"crime" if an existing dorm needed
major renovations in the future, he
The only feasable way the
University could afford a new dorm,
Salowitz said, would be if it
recieved low-interest subsidies from
the state or federal government.
"But they don't seem to have the
resources either," he said.
University officials have
complained that the University is
underfunded by the state in meeting
just its operating costs, to say
nothing of major expansion efforts
like new dorms. These complaints
have brought discussions about
making budget cuts and downsizing
the University. This possibility,
added with the shrinking number of
potential college students in the
country, have made University
administrators wary of increasing
University housing space.
Still, James Brinkerhoff, the
University's vice president and chief
financial officer, says the housing
office is studying the housing
problem this fall. "One concern is
whether a new dorm would have
occupancy over the next forty
years," he said. The University is
also studying the possibility of
converting the Old Main Hospital,
vacated upon completion of new
facilities earlier this year, into a
With obstacles facing both
private and public-sponsored
solutions, Rumsey advocates a
partnership between the University,
the city, and local developers. For
example, land ownedby the
University could be leased to
According to Salowitz, this
would be feasible, though it would
bring opposition from developers
not included in such a venture.
"We'd be offering a developer
preferential treatement, guaranteeing
full occupancy. It raises some
ethical concerns,"'he said.
Planning and building dorms or
apartments, especially enough to
ease the current room shortage,
could take years. In the meantime,
many predict that rents, like
admissions to the University, will
continue to rise.
The general situation isn't likely
to improve, city planner Bohl says:
"There are no short term solutions."
