"I taught a love and relationships
course in 1988 in which I mentioned
my partner. (My sexual orientation)
came out in the process of a lecture,"
Ore said. "If I was teaching biologi-
cal chemistry, I don't think it would
come out."
Law Prof. David L. Chanbers
said he feels his position at the U-M
made it easier for him to reveal his
sexual orientation.
"I'm in a lucky position, being
tenured and being at the law school,
an especially hospitable part of the
university. I don't experience being
treated differently but whether my
words are valued in the same way
that they were before is much harder
for me to determine," Chambers

The choice to come out is not al-
ways a positive experience for U-M
faculty and staff. The reactions from
the areas in which they work can be
problematic due to people's biases
and irrational fears.
"Many people I know within the
institution talk to me and are in ter-
ror," Chambers said. "It comes from
being within departments of the uni-
versity where they believe that
they'll be punished if they come
To remedy this problem, Soto
suggested, "It would be good when
someone comes for an interview at
an institution to know that it is okay
to come out and say that you are
gay. You should not have the fear
that you would not get the position
because of (your sexual

Billie Edwards, co-coordinator of
the Lesbian Gay Male Programs
Office, said she feels that the atti-
tudes toward homosexual U-M
faculty and staff depend on the
"Some departments have excel-
lent reputation for being secure. For
others, it is the kiss of death to come
out," Edwards said. "It is an indica-
tion of how cold the climate is for
lesbians and gay males to come out."
Virginia Gordan, assistant dean
of students at the law school, said a
person is always concerned with
being viewing through a screen.
"(You become) 'the gay person'
or 'the lesbian,' as a single issue per-
son. Of course it is an important as-
pect of your life, but it is not the
only aspect," she said.

Ore said she fecls that the U-M
should be ashamed of its behavior
toward gay and lesbian groups on
campas. "The university needs to do
a whole hell of a lot more. People
are afraid to come out because of the
things they've seen happen to Inc,"
she said.
"It takes pioneering people to
have the audacity to challenge the
status quo," Winters said. "We
would like the rest of society to just
get over it. All we really ask is that
society be neutral on this issue. At
present, it's not."
Ore said most students have a
positive reaction to her decision to
reveal her sexual orientation. "I be-
come an ally, not a threat for lesbian
and gay students," Ore said. "If I can
be a role model, I un glad I was

facilitate better discussion and take
some burden off the TAs," he said.
Christopher Gelpi, a political sci-
ence TA, said smaller classes would
allow him "to make more thorough
comments on papers and tests."
Gelpi said in his experience, he
has found that smaller classes pro-
mote better discussions. "When I
taught a class with only nine stu-
dents the dynamics of teaching were
different," he said.

sary for a sanction and the standard
to be convicted, which now requires
"clear and convincing evidence."
"If the university wants to make
this a better and more comfortable
place they should look more into
prevention...," he said.
Schwartz and Van Houweling
said although the meetings went
well and Hartford was willing to
discuss many issues; they feel the
best policy would be no policy at all.

LSA sophomore Joe Settineri
said foreign language classes should
be smaller. "Last year, I had only
eight students in my Italian class,
which made it possible for one-on-
one conversation," he said. "This
semester, it is a lot more crowded
and I can tell the difference."

Yet some students are satisfied
with their current class size.
Amy Silverstone, an LSA first-
year student, said, "Classes aren't
necessarily supposed to be one-on-
one. In general, questions are asked
and answered."
DeKay said he also feels that a
class size o 3( or more students is
not necessarily too Lu!re.

creased education efforts about ATM
safety following the crimes.
For the past two years, Ann Ar-
bor police have been promoting
crime prevention, public safety and
consumer education relating to
Through interviews with special-
ists and financial institutions, police
have researched ways to prevent
ATM crime.

Mayo Foundation is an affirmative action and equal opportunity educator and employer.
A smoke-free institution.

"We discussed site designs, model
guidelines, assessment o risks, pol-
icy statements, camera considera-
tions, consumer education and
general security," Wright said.
Local financial institutions be-
came involved in statewide and na-
tional campaigns to enhance security
and public education. The cam-
paign's task force included represen-
tatives from Cirrus, American Ex-
press and the Consumer Bankers
One member of the task force,
Barry Schriber of the University of
St. Cloud in St. Cloud, Minn., has
studied ATM crime in the United
States for the last five years.
In a 1989 study, he reported that
20 percent of customers who were
robbed resisted the assaulter. Eigh-
teen percent of those who resisted
the assaulter were injured as a result.
Eleven percent of those who were in-
jured brought lawsuits against
banking institutions.
The study recommended that law
officials start tracking types of ATM
crime, improve communication with
the financial community and work
directly with financial institutions
on crime-related issues.
Last spring, Magicline - an
ATM system - in conjunction with
the Ann Arbor Police Department
and the Michigan Association of
Chiefs of Police, sponsored a 30-
second public service announcement
about ATM safety, which aired
throughout Michigan.
They also produced a video to
help financial institutions educate
employees about ATM security.
"Most law enforcements don't
track specific ATM crimes to that
finesse. If reported, we list it under
financial crime, and work on taking
better preventive measures," Wright
"There are general safety tips that
everyone should know," Magicline

president J1im Ou tland sidl.
Outland advises the following
safety tips for A''M users:
Choose a well-lit ATM and
park close if you are driving;
At night, be accompanied by
someone else;
Have your card ready and fill
out all forms before using machine;
Stand directly in front of ma-
chine so that nobody else can see
your personal identification number;
Push "cancel" if anyone
nearby appeu-s suspicious;
Put cash in your pocket
immediately and count it later, and;
If you are followed after using
an ATM, go to a public area where
people are around.
"In general, when selecting an
ATM, find a well-lit one in a high
traffic area where others are around.
Use common sense," Outland said.
The task force also suggested
guidelines for financial institutions
about selecting locations for ATM
machines, providing adequate light-
ing and maintaining visibility, he
Although statistics show that
ATM crime is uncommon, it is not
uniformly defined by law enforce-
ment agencies. Only a few police
agencies have specific departments
for ATM crime. And nationally, in-
cidents are under-reported, Outland
"We're just like the rest of soci-
ety - we're subject to crime," he

"It really does depend on the
class. Some classes just do not re-
quire as much discussion as others,"
he said.
John Cross, associate dean of
budget for LSA, said a lack of funds
prevents the hiring of additional
TAs. "The issue is faculty and TA
budget. If there is money to hire
more TAs, we will do it," he said.
In the past, LSA has been able to
hire additional TAs when a specific
class is too large. "We were able to
decrease the size of English 125
classes from 25 students to 22,"
Cross added.

'One of the things that I would

Calm down. Help is on the way,"
Clinton asserted.
Some analysts have suggested
that uncertainty about a prospective
Clinton presidency was contributing
to some of the market's instability.
Said Clinton: "I think once the
election is over, if we prevail, we
can send a clear signal to those mar-
kets that we're going to move this
country in the right direction. We're
going to take the deficit down, take
investment up and get economic
growth going."
Bush accused Democrats of load-
ing up a catchall tax bill with new
tax increase proposals.
The bill would expand tax-de-
ductible Individual Retirement
Accounts, offer incentives for job
creation in blighted areas and ladle
out tax breaks to targeted groups.
