sparks

Over 40 protesters braved the
elements and the authorities yester-
day afternoon to demonstrate against
a speaking appearance by U.S.
Supreme Court Chief Justice
William Rehnquist.
The demonstrators protested
Rehnquist's stance on a variety of
issues, including abortion, affirma-
tive action, and lesbian and gay
rights.

protest
I Admittance to Rehnquist's speech
was limited to law students, faculty
and their families, sparking further
opposition by the protesters, who
were barred from attending the
speech.
Prior to the speech, representa-
tives from various groups support-
ing the demonstration addressed the
protestors outside the Law Quad.
Rhonda Laur of the Ann Arbor
Coalition to Defend Abortion Rights
and an organizer of the protest said,

"The agenda of William Rehnquist is
not one that supports the rights of
all people." She declared that Ameri-
cans should not tolerate "Rehnquist's
racist, sexist, bigoted shit."
Just prior to the speech, demon-
strators attempted to gain entry to
Hutchins Hall where Rehnquist was
speaking, but were denied access by
security officers stationed at every
entrance.

Chase's impeachment trial was
critical to the establishment of a
strong, independent, federal judiciary,
Rehnquist said, because it set a
precedent that Supreme Court jus-

political pressures.
Rehnquist quoted Agatha
Christie's character Hercule Peirot,
"murder can get to be a habit," and

"An interesting treatment of early
history of the court, obviously non-
controversial," was retired University
law professor Samuel Estep's ap-
praisal of Chief Supreme Court Jus-
tice William Rehnquist's lecture yes-
terday afternoon.
Approximately 400 students and
faculty crowded Hutchins Hall, lin-
ing the back and walls, to hear

Rehnquist speak. Periodically,
chants could be heard from a protest
outside: "William Rehnquist go
away!" Rehnquist did not comment
on the protest in his speech.
Estep said he found the rally
"completely discourteous" and its
message contradictory to the concept
of free speech. "You just don't treat
people that way," he said.
Law School Dean Lee Bollinger
told the audience in introducing

Rehnquist that the justice would not
answer questions regarding recent
cases.
Rehnquist said he had chosen the
subject of the speech, "The Im-
peachment Trial of Samuel Chase
Before the Senate in 1805," because
of the upcoming Supreme Court bi-
centennial next February. "I wish he
had spoken about a more timely
topic," said second-year law student
Martin Litt.

'U' may build N. Campus library

by Kristine LaLonde
Daily Administration Reporter
FLINT - North Campus stu-
dents may not have to go to central
campus to reach a comprehensive li-
brary anymore and aerospace engi-
neering students will soon be work-
ing in a new facility.
The University's Board of Re-
gents approved proposals for a new
North Campus comprehensive li-
brary/computer facility and a new
aerospace engineering building at its
monthly meeting yesterday.
The library is contingent on a
$34,000,000 expenditure from the

state. The aerospace building, which
has been granted a $5 million private
donation, will have its ground break-
ing on November 3.
If the University receives the
state funds necessary for the library
complex - which will include a
computer center and the University's
collection of engineering volumes
- the building will be connected to
the North Campus Commons and
the Chrysler Building.
The facility, called the Integrated
Technology Instruction Center, will
have three stories with a partial

basement. It will be completed about
two years after its start.
University Planner Fred Mayer
said the proposed center will include
a traditional library, computer facili-
ties and a "unique interdisciplinary
and experimental space." This space
will include audio and video experi-
ments for the art and music schools,
computer-aided design evaluation for
the architecture and music schools,
and teleconferencing.
Aerospace Engineering Dept.
Chair Thomas Adamson said the
aerospace engineering building will

replace existing facilities which are
inadequate for modern times. He said
the buildings were constructed inex-
pensively and had outdated laborato-
ries.
"Our labs have fallenbehind what
we need," Adamson said. "We are
hoping through this we will be get-
ting the facilities we've needed for
ten or fifteen years."
He added that the new structure
will replace all the aerospace facili-
ties now in use except for two wind
tunnels. The facility will include re-

earthquake

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -
Four strong aftershocks rattled a jit-
tery Northern California yesterday.
The first, measuring 5.0 on the
Richter scale, hit at 3:15 a.m. and
was centered near Watsonville, about

eight miles from the epicenter of
Tuesday's 6.9 quake, according to*
the State Office of Emergency Ser-
vice. Two other aftershocks mea-
sured 4.5 and a fourth registered a
4.3.
Rescuers who found fewer cars
than feared under a collapsed freeway
said the World Series may have re-
duced the rush-hour traffic.
"Normally at five o'clock in the
afternoon this area would be bumper
to bumper. Maybe the World Series
saved our lives," Oakland police Sgt.
Bob Crawford said.
At the 14-mile stretch of the col-
lapsed double-deck Interstate 880,
workers cut holes in concrete and
used cranes to pull out pancake-flat
cars. Rescuers reported finding the
cars as far apart as 60 feet, rather
than bumper-to-bumper as had been
feared, Assistant Fire Chief Al Sig-
wart said.
That could lower the death toll in
the highway rubble estimated earlier
at 250, Crawford said.
Many people left work early to
watch the third game of the World
Series, scheduled to start at 5:30
p.m., and 60,000 people already
were across the bay in San Francisco
at Candlestick Park when the quake
struck at 5:04 p.m.
Besides the cable cars that were

Only eight percent of the Univer-
sity's full professors are women.
The percentage of women assis-
tant professors at the University has
declined from 30 percent to 28 per-
cent in the last decade.
The female faculty to female stu-
dent ratio is 1 to 41 as opposed to 1
to 10 for males.
In response to statistics like
these, University Pres. James Duder-
stadt formed the President's Advisory
Commission on Women's Issues
last March. The Commission is fol-
lowing recommendations outlined in
a report submitted to Duderstadt by
an ad hoc committee last December.
"President Duderstadt realized the
University was missing the ball,"
said Julie Steiner, Commission
member and director of the Sexual
Assault Prevention and Awareness
Center.
"A lot of people perceive that the
battle (for women's equality) is over,
and all the doors have been opened to
women," Steiner said, "but people
stopped actively doing things, and
we have lost ground."
The commission consists of 15
women faculty, administrators, and
students, divided into three task
forces studying faculty issues, aca-
demic climate, and staff development
and career advancement
The issues the Commission will

not be doing research but just pro-
viding advice.
The initial goal of the faculty
task force is to improve the retention
and advancement of women assistant
professors, said Carol Hollenshead,
chair of the Commission and director
of the Center for Continuing Educa-
tion of Women.
The academic climate task force
will look at ways to improve the
"chilly" classroom climate for
women, Hollenshead said. The class-
room experience is alienating to
many women because men are called
on to speak more often, Steiner ex-
plained.
The academic climate task force
is also concerned with implementing
a anti-discriminatory harassment pol-
icy for faculty and staff. Currently,
the University does not have an offi-
cial policy, and work on one has
come to a standstill since the origi-
nal student policy was declared un-
constitutional in August.
Safety and security, management
training, and childcare program is-
sues will be examined by the task
force on staff development and career
enhancement.
"We need sustained opportunities
for staff development. Women are
still the primary caregivers in their
families, and have many demands re-
lated to this," said Laurita Thomas,
administrator for Human Resources
for the Medical Campus and Com-
mis-,ion member-

The mark of a good team lies in
its ability to win away from home.
Michigan, historically has accom-
plished that feat, winning nearly 80
percent of its Big Ten road games.
But Iowa City has not brought
the Wolverines good luck in recent
years, as they haven't been able to
celebrate in Iowa since a 29-7
victory in 1982.

The Iowa fans created a ruckus
last year that prevented Michigan
quarterback Michael Taylor from
directing the offense. After the
Wolverines were called for delay of
game, coach Bo Schembechler
chewed out the nearest official,
drawing an added 15-yard penalty.
Iowa coach Hayden Fry
volunteered to provide Schembechler
with some assistance for Saturday's
game (kickoff at 3:35 p.m. on ABC-
