Seven months after the Bursley
Hall snack bar/store closed down af-
ter accumulating an almost $3,000
debt, residents and housing officials
are beginning to discuss where the
responsibility for the debt lies.
John Giaimo, one of last year's
managers, pointed to account man-
ager Marc Peot for mismanaging the
snack bar's funds last year.
But Peot, who graduated last
April and is currently living in
Rhode Island, said the snack bar had
been losing money for years.
Until two years ago, the snack
bar used to run the Coke machines
located in the dorm's front lobby.
These machines - now run by the
Bursley Council - brought in about
$3,000 a year said Peot.
The eating establishments in the
North Campus Commoms, built
four years ago, also took business
away from the snack bar, he said.
As manager, Peot was responsi-
ble for store funds, but the money
was not lost dishonestly.
"I do feel responsible for the
money that was lost last year. In ef-
fect that $2,600 was part of my re-
sponsibility," said Peot. "There was
no real way to save the store, it
couldn't have survived."
"I am not an accounting student...
There was a lot involved that I didn't
understand. I did the best I could but
the accounts are readable by very few
people," said Peot.
One of the mysteries of the mis-
sing funds is a check made out to
Peot for $296.83 to cover the cost of
T-shirts purchased for the store.
Giaimo had been under the im-
pression that the T-shirts had cost
$50 and not $296. After speaking
with Peot early last week, Giaimo
changed his mind, "I was~misin-
formed about the T-shirts. I should
have contacted Marc before I said
Dave Fausch, a resident advisor at
Bursley, said it was general knowl-
edge that last year's six managers
gave themselves Christmas bonuses.
But Peot said the managers have tra-
ditionally split $1,000 from the ac-
count. Last year they received less
than usual, he said.
Peot spoke with Bursley Hall
Building Director Caroline Gould, a-
bout how the money ought to be
replaced. The two came up with
some ideas but said they were not
ready to reveal them.
"I'm willing to compromise,"
said Peot, who is planning to dis-
cuss the future of the snack bar with
the current president of Bursley
Some Bursley residents, tired of
waiting for a snack bar, are begin-
ning to formulate their own plans.
"I want to open a Restaurant Op-
erations section under the NCRC
(North Campus Recreation Club),"
said Charles Dudley, an LSA junior
and president of NCRC.
Too much time is being spent
deciding who is responsible, Dudley
said. People involved should turn
their energies toward deciding a fu- "
ture for the snack bar.
"The intent is to raise the money
first and then say 'we have the
money can we start utilizing the
space?"' He said he wants to hold a
bucket drive in the Bursley lobby to
If a student has a good plan for
reopening the snack bar it would be
considered, Gould said.
However, Peot said, "I don't
think the store will reopen. If it does
it will be because of an arrangement
through Bursley Council - pro-
bably not under student organiza-

World AIDS Day emphasizes care
BY VICTORIA BAUER
Though AIDS patients are treated
medically in hospitals, they often are
not treated with compassion or re-
spect by their physicians, said an
organizer of a symposium today on
the attitude of the medical commu-
nity towards AIDS patients.
The University's symposium is
part of the first "World AIDS Day,"
a day designated by the World Health
Organization to educate communities
about AIDS and show support for
AIDS patients throughout the world.
Today five speakers - both doc-
tors and AIDS patients - will dis-
cuss the need for empathetic treat-

No national event is planned for
today, but thousands of communities
throughout the United States are
holding events, said Lucy Calahan, a
spokesperson for the World Health
Organization in Washington, D.C.
The University Hospitals treat
AIDS patients, but do not provide
specialized AIDS services, said
David Ostrow, associate professor of
psychiatry at the School of
"The hospital is not turning
AIDS patients away, but it's not
doing anything to attract them. It's
maintaining a low profile," Ostrow
University Hospitals do not pro-
vide specialized services because of
complaints from patients who fear
contracting the disease, Ostrow said.
The hospital is also worried about
the high cost - $50,000 to
$100,000 - for treating a patient
with AIDS, he said.
"The hospital is concerned that at
some point the treatment will ex-
haust (patients') insurance coverage
and they will go on Medicaid or be-
come charity patients," Ostrow said.
At the Medical School, some
students need to change their nega-
tive attitudes toward AIDS patients,
said a member of the Gay and Les-
bian Medical Students and Residents.
The lecture will be held from 12
noon to 1 pm at South Lecture Hall
in the Medical Science I Building.
