Church will extend hours FOOD

After budget cuts forced a short-
ening of computing center hours at
the beginning of the term, a comput-
ing center official said the 611
Church cluster will switch to
around-the-clock operations sooner
than anticipated.
Responding to pressure by stu-
dents, Supervisor of Campus
Computer Sites Operations Jane
Baker announced that extended
hours will, if possible, begin before
the scheduled date of Nov. 10.
Originally, the date was chosen be-
cause it marks the beginning of the
last eight weeks of the term - sta-
tistically the time of highest de-
mand for computer time, Baker said.
Since the center will be extend-
ing its schedule earlier than Nov. 10,
it will be forced to utilize funds

originally intended for upgrading
computers in order to cover the cen-
ter's expanded schedule, said Deb
Masten, Associate Director of
Campus Computing Sites, Sales and
Service.

Because of budget cuts, the
University's second largest comput-
ing center was forced to reevaluate
its expenditures for the fall term.
Masten said she had to find a balance
between cuts in equipment, opera-

hours, and that it makes a real difference to
them, so we would like to start soon'

year, early mornings, Friday
evenings and Saturdays are the cen-
ter's most inactive times. "After a
long week, students need the week-
end to take a break," Baker said.
Thus, the center's current opening
time of 10 a.m., and shortened hours
on Friday evenings and Saturdays
have affected the fewest number of
students possible, Baker said.
Center employee Brian McRae
said the biggest change since the cuts
has come in the evenings.
"Last year," McRae said, "we
could expect nearly 100 people to
come in the evenings, and we were
still kicking people out by 12 a.m.
when we closed. This year, that
number has been cut in half. If peo-
ple come after dinner, they can't get
enough done by 10 p.m., so they have
stopped coming at all."

Baker would not specify an exact
date when the center will move to
its 24-hour weekday schedule, but
expressed optimism. "We know a
lot of people want increased hours,
and that it makes a real difference to
them, so we would like to start as
soon as possible," Baker said.

tional expenses, and hours.
The resulting compromise cut
the operating hours of the center by
four hours a day on weekdays, as
well as on Friday afternoons and
Saturdays.

night to discuss her encounter with
sexual harassment. She said that she

had been inspired by the recent
"speak out" of Anita Hill.
"I would not be here tonight if
Anita Hill had not come forward.
She is an inspiration to us all,"

I U

Carlson said.
A box was set up at the "Speak
Out" to collect supportive letters
for Hill. Pamphlets discussing the
subject of sexual harassment, what
men can do to stop rape, and what
not to say to a survivor of sexual as-
sault were also available last night.
LSA sophomore Becky Rode said
she felt the evening was important
and very inspirational.
"This was my first time attend-

ing the Speak Out. It was a special
experience in that it allowed
women an emotional release of a
problem which has affected every
aspect of their life. I strongly em-
pathize and look up to these strong
women," Rode said.
"I was really moved by a lot of
the stories. I did not realize how
many people have been touched by
sexual assault," said third-year law
student Chris Pugh.

journed. The EIC is an unofficial as-
sembly panel.
An amendment, sponsored by
Rules and Elections Committee
(REC) Chair Brian Kight, to add
EIC and simultaneously remove the
Peace and Justice Commission from
the ballot was also suspended.
Kight argued that Peace and
Justice is a poorly defined commis-
sion which could be encompassed
within other committees such as the
External Relations Committee or
the Students Rights Commission.
Rackham Rep. Ben Witherell
said that the committee may have
been controversial in the past due to
its foreign policy agenda, but the
current commission is working on
networking and education on
campus.

WASTES

CSWD is also concerned about
the potential environmental hazards
associated with the proposed stor-
age facility. If approved, the facility
will temporarily house steel bar-
rels of needles containing low-level
radiation and incinerator ash. The
waste will sit in the storage facility
until it becomes non-radioactive and
will then be disposed of as regular
waste, Owsley said.
"It will be a high-trafficking
operation, since the storage is short-
term. There will be lots of oppor-
tunities for things to go wrong,
plus the risk of fire," Soronson said.
"Typically, these things are done in
unpopulated areas."

Qwsley said the waste would
not pose a threat.
"The University is trying to dis-

HEALTH
Continued from page 1
Goldman added that he under-
stands why people become aggra
vated after having to wait for a
long time to see a clinician, but he
emphasized that that is not mal-
practice.
Lauren Davis, an LSA sopho-
more, said she has never had a posi-
tive experience at UHS. The most
recent incident was Oct. 15, when
she met with a physician's assistant
who diagnosed Davis with an ear
infection. She said she was disap-
pointed that she could not meet
with a doctor, and when she left
UHS after her appointment, Davis
said the office visit was charged to
her insurance.
Davis also said she was frus-
trated after visiting UHS simply
to refill the prescription for an in-
haler for asthma.
"I had to wait for two hours
for a doctor who didn't even look
at me," she said. "He wrote the
same prescription as my doctor
from home, which I had with me."
"The major cardinal sin in
medicine is to misdiagnose a treat-
able disease," Briefer said. "The
vast majority of illnesses we see
are viral in nature and require no
treatment."
UHS employees also stress the
importance of quality management
- remember what it's like on the
other side of the desk.
"We're looked upon as a
leader," Briefer said. "We've done
innovative things. I'm really
pretty proud of this place now, but
our philosophy is, 'we should al-
ways be trying to do it better.'"
have argued in the past that Peace
and Justice should be dissolved be-
cause of its political actions.
Many representatives who at-
tended the meeting were disap-
pointed that there was a failure to
make quorum.
Witherell argued that midterm
exams were not an excuse to be ab-
sent from meetings since MSA's
one meeting a week should be incor-
porated into assembly members'
schedules.
"There were a bunch of peopleS
sitting here tonight that were
overly eager to leave regardless of
what was on the agenda," he added.
"It's not fulfilling your responsi-
bility as a student government rep-
resentative regardless of what party
you're from."
Business Rep. Sandra Dixon said
that it is a waste of her time to come
to meetings when the assembly fails
to meet quorum.
pose of the waste in a safe and envi-
ronmentally sound manner," he
said.
Soronson said CSWD views the
facility upgrades as positive, but
would like to see a complete ban on
incineration on North Campus.
"One of our goals is to get the
University to work at source reduc-
tion," she said.
Soronson said she feels the
University is not concerned about
the residents' well-being.
"The University has misled peo-
ple and been dishonest. Their pri-
mary concerns are to save money and
protect their image," she said.
As a long term solution, the
University has asked the MDNR for

permission to begin burning labora-
tory animals treated with radioac-
tive isotopes in a newer incineratot
located in the Medical Sciences
Research Building I on the medical
campus.
