The selection of a first-choice
location for the $4.4 billion
Supercolliding Super Conductor has
been delayed so that Department of
Energy officials could consider an
Environmental Impact Statement
before making their decision.
A "preferred site" for the collider
will be selected in November,
instead of July, department
Spokesperson Jeff Sherwood said
The department will gather
information on the collider's
environmental effects at the various
sites, and will release a draft report
of their findings in August,
Energy Secretary John Herrington
will confirm the decision on the
collider's site next January, as was
already planned, Sherwood said.
Seven states, including Michigan,
are still in contention for the
collider. Michigan's proposed site is
located in Stockbridge, a city
halfway between Ann Arbor and East
Lansing. It is also within an hour
from Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
In the past, officials working
closely on the collider project have
said that the collider's environmental
impact will be minimal, although
people who may live near the site
have voiced concerns about the
disposal of radioactive waste and the
possibility of an accident.
The Superconducting Super
Collider, upon its completion in
1996, will be the largest such
collider in the world. It will use
10,000 superconducting magnets to
propel streams of protons around a
53-mile, underground track at close
to the speed of light.

Two speakers from the University's
sister university in El Salvador asked
students for "moral and economic
solidarity," as well as an understand-
ing of their struggles at a speech last
Gustavo Adolfo Noyola, president of
the University of El Salvador, and
Eliseo Ascencion, member of the
student government at the university,
spoke about El Salvadoran president
Napoleon Duarte, military interven-
tion at the University of El Salvador,
and the current civil war.
"In 1972, I was again captured and
tortured," Noyola said, referring to a
1972 military take-over of the uni-
versity when students and officials
were exiled and the campus was de-
stroyed. "They broke my ribs, cut
my hair and left me for dead." Noyola
told the crowd of about 100.
Ascencio, who like Noyola spoke
through an interpreter, said the the
university now faces severe financial
problems. Duarte is unsympathetic
to pleas for more money to help the
school, he said.
"The concrete problem of university
students is that we do not have
rooms in which to hold classes or the
chalk, the paper or anyway to repro-
duce scientific documents necessary
for our studies," Ascencio said.
"You ask what it is that North
Americans can do; the answer is ob-
vious. We can't ask you for the $2
million a day that your government
sends our military. We do ask for
your solidarity, moral as well as
economic," Ascencio said.

these rules "are not very specific.
You couldn't call them procedures."
He called the rules "inadequate."
McClamroch said faculty and
student rules should not be the same.
He said rules for faculty members
must balance "academic freedom" -
professors' rights to teach whatever
they want - and University
standards under which employees
Virginia Nordby, director of the
University's Affirmative Action

stricter than student rules. "The

Pat Robertson was out of the

Dole, while campaigning Tuesday
in Springfield, Ill., said, "if we take a
little bath today, I am going to start

like I did 40 years ago." He hoped to
