ROTC hopes to
scare up money
with haunted house
by Tim Greimel
Daily Staff Reporter
ROTC members are hoping students will think a
former morgue, located in North Hall's basement, is
the perfect place to hang out this Halloween weekend.
ROTC will host its annual haunted house this
Friday and Saturday night.
"It is a great way to have fun for both us and our
guests," said LSA senior Anthony Gorw, who is in
charge of the actors for the event and is a member of
the U-M ROTC Navy branch.
Engineering senior Sandra Roth, in the ROTC Air
Force program and in charge of publicity for the
haunted house, said the money will be donated to
Safe House and the Washtenaw County Vietnam
Veterans Memorial Fund.
She predicted this year's attendance will surpass
last year's unusually low 1,700 people, which she at-
tributed to poor weather.
Fifth-year LSA senior Ida Thong, who attended
Genocide ignored, professors say
The halls of North Hall, the ROTC building, were empty
yesterday, but it will be filled with scary sights for the
annual haunted house. The haunted house will take
place in the basement of the building, next to the old

always really long, but it was pretty scary in some
She added, "But other parts were either funny or
"I encourage people to come early to avoid the
lines," said Rich Duffy, fifth-year engineering senior
and organizer of the event:-"Besides a better turnout
and a couple new surprises at the end, this year
should be comparable to past years."

Three U-M professors criticized
the denial of what they called the
Armenian genocide of 1915 through
1923 in a lecture yesterday afternoon
in the Lane Hall Commons.
More than 70 people gathered to
hear the discussion of what the
speakers called a "genocide" in
which an estimated 600,000 to 1.5
million Armenians perished.
History Prof. Todd Endelman ad-
dressed revisionists - people who
try to re-interpret history.
Endelman said that with respect
to the Jewish Holocaust, revisionists
"simply say the events didn't happen
... (that) the Nazis didn't murder 6
But Endelman said "the facticity
is not up for debate" for neither the
Holocaust nor the Armenian
History Prof. Ronald Suny out-
lined the history of the Armenian
people. Although the Armenians
were subjects of the Ottoman
Empire and "a conquered people in
their own homeland," they main-
tained a religious and cultural sys-
tem of their own.
He said the Christian Armenians
became more cosmopolitan in ,the
late 19th and early 20th centuries,
provoking jealousy from the pre-
dominately Muslim Turks.
The advent of the Young Turk
regime in 1908 led to efforts to
completely alter the ethnic balance
with what the Turks termed "the fi-
nal solution to the Armenian prob-
lem," Suny said.
"The disaster goes on as long as
people continue to deny it," Suny
added, referring to attempts since the
massacre by Turkish regimes to
deny its occurrence.
Slavic Department Professor
Kevork Bardakjian spoke as well,
and told of efforts to deny the facts
of the Armenian genocide.
He said the Turkish government
has tried to deny the fact that a mas-
sacre ever occurred and has at-
tempted to shut down efforts - par-
ticularly in the United States - to
bring the massacre back to public at-
"Turkish propaganda depicts
Armenians as a threat to the Turkish
state ... and that they deserved to
die," Bardakjian said.
He added that Turkey has urged
Armenia to drop the issue of the
genocide as a prerequisite to the es-
tablishment of good relations be-
tween the two countries, but
Armenia has declined to do so.
In a question-and-answer period
after the lecture, Bardakjian criti-
cized the U.S. government for
"sacrificing the truth for political
ends" by not pressing Turkey to ad-
mit the existence of the Armenian

LSA senior John Petz, College
Republicans president, also dedi-
cates long hours to campaigning for
five different candidates.
"This year so far has been insane.
I really lack sleep. I go to class from
around 9 to 2, campaign from 2 to 10
p.m. and then do homework from 10
to 4 a.m.," he said. "I have managed
to only miss only two classes be-
cause of rallies I had to attend, and
I'm taking 17 credits," Petz said.
"I sometimes get only an hour
sleep but it is all worth it at the end,"
Although many students are hired
by campaign staffs, an even larger
number of students volunteer for
"I would say that 50 percent of
the volunteers who work at ...
Ford's office are students from the
U-M," Sank said.
LSA senior Amy Blumenthal
said she devotes at least 10 hours per
week campaigning for Democratic
state representative candidate Lynn
"It is important that students get
involved with their community,"
Blumenthal said. "I felt that I could
make students aware of the issues
that will be affecting our generation
by participating in the campaign.
"I was especially impressed with
(Rivers) because she gives students
good perspectives on women's is-
sues. I support the fact that more
women are stepping into the public
life as opposed to the private life,"
Blumenthal said it is difficult to
balance her school work and cam-
paigning, especially during
midterms. But, she said she has
learned time management skills.
"I know what to focus on and I
seriously seem to get more work
done now because I know ahead of
time that I have little time to do it
in," Blumenthal said.
Mike Christie, a first-year
Residential College student, spends
at least 20 to 25 hours campaigning
during the week and six hours volun-
teering on the weekends for
Republican U.S. House candidate
"I must balance my time between
my girlfriend, homework and
friends," Christie said. "Since I am
in the Residential College, I don't
get grades, just evaluations.
"Sometimes I do feel pinched -
especially these past couple of weeks
-- but I have learned to deal with it.
I always work it out, even if it means
pulling all-nighters," he said.
"Twenty-four hours is simply not
enough time to run a campaign."
LSA sophomore Rachel Rouse
not only volunteers for Geake, U-M
Board of Regents candidate Nancy
Laro, and U.S. House candidate
Dick Chrysler, but also works 10
hours a week for the U-M Office of
Development and is president of the
South Quad Council.
"It is important to reach the peo-
ple, "make issues known to students,
and make politics an issue of every-
one. I am the kind of person that can
handle school and at the same time
participate in the campaigns," Rouse
LSA senior Deborah Schneider, a
volunteer for 52nd District State
Rep. Candidate Mary Schroer, said
campaigning has been a great learn-
"It is important for students to get
in there and make a difference. It is
our generation that is at stake. The
only regret I have is that I have any
classes at all," she said.
Professors praised students for
their participation in campaigning,
but expressed displeasure at students
who skipped classes in order to do
"I understand that students want
to get involved in the campaigns but
campaigning is like any other extra
curriculum activity. Students must
keep up with the work," said
Stephen Ernst, professor of Anatomy
and Cell Biology.
"They are here to get an educa-
tion. Even though some extra curric-
ular activities are more tied with ed-
ucation, I would not alter a grade
just because they said they were to
involved in the campaign," he added.
However, some students working
on the campaigns said their profes-
sors have been very supportive when
they explain their situation.
"Most of my professors are sur-
prised and impressed when I tell
them that I work on the Bill Ford
campaign," Sank said.
History Prof. Victor Lieberman
said, "I encourage students to be-
come involved in the campaigns and.
I feel that if they fail to make my
lecture that it is there business."
"The campaign mangers are also
very supportive when I tell them that
I have a class. They just tell me to go
and they don't seem to mind," Sank
LSA junior Matt Levine, a volun-
teer for Rep. Bill Ford's campaign
said, "Working on the campaign has
been the ultimate learning experi-
ence, and I'm sure not many stu-
dents can say that they had an oppor-
tunity to shake Texas Governor Ann
na (AP) - Serb attackers reportedly
captured a town held by Bosnia's
Muslim-led government yesterday
and thousands of Muslims were
believed fleeing the area.
Earlier, Bosnian officials said
government forces were engaging
Serbs in house-to-house fighting in
Jajce, 60 miles northwest of
Sarajevo, but had been confident
they would be able to hold part of

the road withdrawing, they're being
shelled and strafed as they with-
draw," he said. All of the more than
30,000 Muslim residents were evac-
uating, he said.

was based on his official contacts in
