Storm to
cost 'U'
* more than
expected
By ERIC LEMONT
While many University students
and workers enjoyed yesterday's nice
weather, some spent the day re-
covering from Sunday night's storm.
The damage - estimated to cost
* between four and five thousand dol-
lars to repair - was more extensive
than initially estimated. According
to Adams, 8,000 square feet of roof-
ing was blown off the top of the
building while high winds also
damaged doors and windows.
The North Campus Art and Ar-
chitecture Building suffered the most
damage from a tornado that passed
through Washtenaw County Sunday,
producing high winds and heavy
rains, said Connie Adams, Univer-
sity manager of Maintenance and
Renovations.
THE CEILING and walls of
Hill Auditorium were also damaged
by the volume of the rain, Adams
said.
"We're looking at under $10,000
dollars for the whole bowl of wax,"
Adams said. The cost will be covered
under the University's insurance
policy.
A power outage during the storm
also affected students in Mosher Jor-
dan, Stockwell, and Markley resi-
dence halls. A central campus power
plant employee said that a feeder
problem, which "killed the power to
all buildings hooked up to it," was
"most likely" a result of the storm.
ALTHOUGH some dormitories
regained their power after 45 min-
utes, Markley Hall didn't receive
power until 7 a.m. yesterday.
"It was kind of funny but I was
kind of pissed because it lasted so
long," said Amy Spilman, an LSA
first-year student. Spilman, who was
writing a research paper at the time,
*used a booklight and unused Han-
nukah candles to complete her work.
One Markley resident, an engi-
neering sophomore, said "people
weren't mad at all. They were having
a good time because they could blow
off their homework." The biggest
problem the storm produced, he said,
was tfinding-the toilet."
Thomas Scuerto, a Resident Ad-
visor in Blagdon house, said most
students used candles or flashlights
to make their way around the build-
ing which he described as "black as
night." Scuerto added that some light
was provided by the hospital, which
was not affected by the storm.

South African political prisoner who was murdered by police.

By The Associated Press
Jesse Jackson appealed again yes-
terday to Panamanian military leader
Manuel Antonio Noriega to give up
power, but fellow Democratic presi-
dential hopeful Michael Dukakis
called Jackson's involvement there a
"bad idea" as the two squared off
during yesterday's Colorado caucuses
and before today's Wisconsin pri-
mary.
Sen. Albert Gore Jr. of Tennessee
also criticized Jackson's correspon-
dence with Noriega, but he blasted
Dukakis for being "absolutely timid"
and not attacking Jackson more.
Jackson released a reply from
Noriega yesterday in which the
Panamanian dictator rejects Jack-
son's plea in a March 22 letter to
leave the country.
"I remain convinced that it is in
the best interests of the Panamanian
people for Gen. Noriega to leave.
Today I reiterate my public moral
appeal for him to depart," Jackson
said.
G O R E said of Jackson, "He
didn't help matters in his meetings
with Arafat and Khadaffi. I seriously
doubt if he would help in Panama."
Jackson, Dukakis, and Gore were
joined by Sen. Paul Simon of Illi-
nois during campaigning across
Wisconsin yesterday. Simon is
trailing badly in his effort to win the
state and keep his campaign alive,

while Gore needs a good showing in
the state to boost his faltering effort.
Jackson and Dukakis, the front
runners in both states, awaited the
slow dribble of results from the
2,784 precinct caucuses in Colorado
that will divide 45 national conven-
tion delegates.
THE REPUBLICANS as well
as the Democrats were holding cau-
cuses last night in Colorado. With
Vice President George Bush already
having locked up the nomination,
Pat Robertson's effort to -win some
of the state's 36 GOP delegate was
only a symbolic gesture.
Only about 20,000 Colorado
Democrats are expected to turn out
for the caucuses, a low turnout that
could be good for Jackson, who drew
huge crowds on Saturday and Sunday
in the state. Dukakis countered with
endorsements form Colorado Gov.
Roy Romer and state Democratic
Party Chair Buie Seawell, but
Dukakis aides said Jackson would
win Colorado.
Jackson and Dukakis are also the
front-runners in the AP delegate
count. Before the Colorado results
were known. Dukakis had 653.55
votes and Jackson 646.55. Gore had
381.8 and Simon 169.5, with a total
of 468.6 uncommitted. At the At-
lanta Democratic Convention in
July, 2,082 votes will be needed to
win.

Unity March
Continued from Page 1
Opponents of civil rights "had to eliminate (King),
but they didn't stop his dream," Clark said. "All of
us... we'll make his dream come true."
The marchers also heard speeches from representa-
tives of the University of Michigan Asian Students
Coalition, the Latin American Solidarity Committee,
and the Palestinian Solidarity Committee.
Speakers at the rally emphasized international as
well as local racial issues, railing against South
Africa's apartheid system and saying that people fight-
ing against racism here must also support the struggle
throughout the world.
"We cannot close our eyes to apartheid. That will
not stop the killing," said Pam Nadasen, an LSA ju-
nior and FSACC member who was born in South

Africa, referring to acts of violence by South African
police against protesters and political prisoners.
Nadasen praised the South African non-whites for
"fighting against a system that forces them to build
shanties like the ones behind you, shanties that house
10 or 12 people," she said, referring to shanties on the
Diag built by FSACC in 1985 in a show of support
for the South Africans.
The Diag rally included a dance performed by LSA
senior Renuka Uthappa and LSA sophomore Daxa Pa-
tel to "Biko," a song written by British musician Peter
Gabriel in honor of South African activist Stephen
Biko, who was tortured and killed by police in a South
African jail in 1977.
Many of the speakers and marchers took advantage,
of the occasion to plug other political causes, including
the rent control proposal that appeared on yesterday's
city election ballot and the question of autonomy for
Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Pursell seeks funding for nursing research facilities

By ANDREW MILLS
The University SchoolofLNurs-
ing would be a "top competitor" to
receive funds for new research facili-
ties if a bill introduced by U.S. Rep
Carl Pursell (R-Plymouth) gets ap-
proval from the House of Represen-
tatives.
The bill responds to what Pursell
perceives as a severe nursing short-
age nationwide. The shortage can be
corrected in part by improving the
quality of nursing training schools,
he said.
A shortage of research facilities
has slowed advances in nursing re-
search, he said.
THE BILL, which has been re-
ferred to a House subcommittee on
health and the environment, would
make $30 million available to con-
struct new laboratories and research

Officials at the NCNR would re-
view grant proposals and institutions
receiving funds would be required to
match the grant.
Pursell intends to seek inclusion
of his legislation in a broader bill
authorizing funding for the NIH, said
Dave Mengebier, a Pursell aide.
There is no date set to discuss the
bill, an official on the House sub-
committee said. She could not
comment on the probability of its
passage.

Professor
kicks off
Mid-East
forum

By MARINA SWAIN
The Palestinian-Israeli conflict
stems from a historical clash which
has "boiled down to the issue of two
people claiming the same territory,"
said a speaker who opened a week-
long forum on the Middle East yes-
terday.
The forum is sponsored by the
Palestine Solidarity Committee.
Professor John Woods, director of
the Center for Middle East Studies at

the University of Chicago, spoke to
about 100 people about the histori-
cal development of the Palestinian-
Israeli clash.
Woods attended high school in
Beirut and has traveled to the oc-
cupied territories three times in the
last 18 months.
He presented a slide show with
-photographs of Palestinian refugee
camps, demolished homes, hospital-
ized victims of Israeli attacks, and

the living conditions of exiled
Palestinians.
Israeli troops that were forcing
striking businesses open told him
"not to take any more pictures or I
would have my camera broken,".
Woods said.
Many Palestinians have had their
land confiscated by Israelis, be said.
Woods spoke to a boy who said, "I
want to be free in my homeland or I
want to be dead."

Correction
Due to incorrect identification, LSA senior Joe Forcier was mistakenly
identified in yesterday's Daily. Though he did not attend Friday's "Hash
Bash," he was quoted in the story as having been there.
