Residents of North Carolina
remain homeless after storms
Stomzs, tonnadoes hit12 states, leaves 25 people dead in wake

Associated Press
Tornadoes ripped across North
Carolina early yesterday, smashing
houses and tossing a school bus full
of kids off a road before a deadly
storm system headed out to sea.
Two people were killed in North
Carolina, boosting the death toll to
25 from the barrage of tornadoes
through 12 states.
"Several mobile homes are just
frames laying in the middle of the
road. ... It's pretty extensive," said
rescue squad member Ray DeFriess
of the damage in Hillsborough, N.C.,
30 miles northwest of Raleigh. He
estimated 40 to 50 homes were de-
stroyed.
A blizzard closed schools and
highways in Colorado and
Wyoming, and avalanches closed
canyon roads in Utah, where the
Alta ski resort got 45 inches of snow
in 24 hours. Wyoming state govern-
ment offices closed in Cheyenne.
Wind gusting to near 40 mph
would lower the wind chill factor to
near minus 30 degrees during the
night around Colorado Springs,
Colo.
Other deaths from the unusual
November thunderstorm system in-
cluded 15 in Mississippi; five in
Georgia; and one each in Tennessee,
Kentucky and South Carolina.
- The first tornadoes hit Louisiana

and Texas on Saturday, damaging
about 300 homes in Houston but
causing only minor injuries. An ex-
tension of the storm system set off
tornadoes in Indiana and Ohio.
Alabama also was struck and a small
tornado caused minimal damage at a
Smithsonian Institution storage and
restoration center at Silver Hill, Md.
The National Weather Service
said at least 45 tornadoes touched
down in the 24 hours up to 7 a.m.
EST Monday.
Hundreds of people were injured.
More than a dozen North
Carolina counties reported damage
or injuries yesterday. Tornadoes
caused extensive power outages,
snapped trees, blocked roads and de-
layed the start of school and work
for thousands.
In Pasquotank County in the
state's northeastern corner, a tornado
picked up a school bus and carried it
20 to 25 feet, said Sheriff D. Sawyer.
Twenty-seven children and the
driver were treated at a hospital. All
injuries treated by late morning were
serious, said hospital spokesperson
Diana Gardner.
Near Wilson's Mills, about 20
miles southeast of Raleigh, Sandra
Ward saw a twister pick up a neigh-
bor's mobile home and smash it into
a field across the road, throwing a
couple and their baby outside.

"It just lifted it up, rolled it in the
air and slammed it down," Ward
said. The baby, found in a field, and
his mother were hospitalized, she
said.
Federal and state damage as-
sessment teams moved into
Mississippi yesterday.
"It was absolute total devasta-
tion," Govenor Kirk Fordice said
after touring hard-hit Rankin
County, where 10 people died.
Georgia Govenor Zell Miller
toured hard-hit areas yesterday and
said damage caused Sunday was
very severe. The town of White
Plains "looks like a war zone," he
said.
Miller said it appeared that one
tornado touched down in Putnam
County "and just hugged the ground
for about 10 or 15 miles, just cutting
a path of destruction all along the
way."
"It just got real black and there
was a continuous roar like thunder
for about 30 minutes," said Putnam
County resident Evalyn Maddox.
Authorities closed several high-
ways across northeastern Colorado,
including Interstate 25 from the Fort
Collins area across the Wyoming
line to Cheyenne and I-70 between
Watkins and Limon in eastern
Colorado.

LIMITS

be nice if we were wrong and the po-
litical process ran a lot smoother,"
he said.
Sen. Robert Geake (R-Northville)
disagrees.
"I think that the general effect
will be favorable. It will allow more
people to participate in politics. It
will be equal in its effect on the par-
ties," he said.
Geake said he thinks term limits
will have the opposite effects on
lobbyists.
"The greatest opponents have
been lobbyists. They like to get to
know a politician and to cultivate the
relationship with them," he said.
"Term limitations will weaken the
influence of lobbyists."
U-M political science professors
were critical of the policy.
Prof. John Kingdon - who
teaches courses in American na-
tional government, legislative
behavior, and public policy - said,@
"Term limits are a bad idea whose
time has come. It will cycle
amateurs in and out of office."
He added, "This will result in
more power going to people who are
there longer, like lobbyists, staffers,
and civil servants. It will also result
in politicians trying to position
themselves for private sector em-
ployment (since they can not serve
indefinitely). It's not a huge disaster
for the republic but it's not what we
want."
Prof. Kent Jennings said the gov-
ernment will suffer from the lack of
expertise among lawmakers.
"There is a huge amount of ex-
pertise needed to run the govern-
ment," he said. "A more rapid
turnover (of politicians) will make
bureaucratic institutions more influ
ential since they will be the ones
with the expertise. This will weaken
the legislature, not strengthen it. It
also increases the likelihood of pol-
icy change."
There is also some uncertainty
over the constitutionality of the new
term limits.
Greg Markus, professor of math-
ematical and statistical modeling and
American mass politics, said, "It's
premature to talk about the effects
(of term limits) until we know there
'It's premature to talk
about the effects (of
term limits) until we
know there will be
term limits. (They) will
almost certainly be
contested in the courts
soon.'

WOMEN
Continued from page 1
"The only safe place I feel in
this class is the discussion,"
Africa said. "In lectures and in
my action project, it's like: He's
a man. Let's get him!"
LSA senior Greg Fedorinchik
said he has occasionally been'
forced to defend men in his
"Women and Literature" class. "I
think when you get into the class
you sort of expect male bashing.
That's what you're going to hear
so it really doesn't bother you or
effect your adversely," he said.
Cole said he tries not to take
these attacks seriously. "They're
all generalizations. Women's
Studies classes are directed to-
ward women, not toward men.
There's nothing you can really do
about it," he said.
Women's Studies 240
Teaching Assistant Renee
Moreno said she felt the class
needs to address male bashing.
"That's not to say that we're
not justifiably angry as women as
a whole because I think we are,"
Moreno said. "But what I do as a
teacher is to create the spaces in
the classroom where students can
be angry and where their anger
can be validated at the same time.
"People shouldn't be put on
the spot or bashed. That really*
holds for both men and women as

STALKING
Continued from page 1.
"The university policy is to re-
lease what we call 'public informa-
tion' on a student (or alumnus) ...
unless the student has asked us to
suppress it," he said.
Woolley added that it would be
difficult to locate the student with
limited information, without a con-
scious effort on the part of the U-M.
"If we had time we would proba-
bly do that because that's what
we're here for," he said.
Chang said she objects to this
U-M policy.
"This is not a safe practice," she
said. "The Alumni Records should
still not give out addresses to
people."
Chang initially accused the man
of stalking her. According to the
California Penal Code, however, his
actions are not considered stalking,
said Officer Tim Hendry of the Palo
Alto Police Department.
"He has the right to make a few
phone calls to locate somebody ..
Even though the person doesn't
want to be located, there's no law
against it," he added.
Hendry added that the situation
was odd. "He went to an awful lot of
effort for somebody that supposedly
he met ... just on casual contact."
Since the incident Chang has
asked the U-M to withhold any
information requested about her. In
addition, Alumni Records has
stopped giving out addresses and
phone numbers to anyone no
directly affiliated with a U-M
department of service.

LSA sophomore Jeremy Africa sits in Women's Studies 240. He took the class to study feminist perspectives on
many issues, but he said he does not like the class because, "there is too much male bashing."

well," Moreno added. "I think
men in these classes are essential.
My feeling is we can't ignore the
other half of the population."
LSA sophomore Jennifer
Fogel agreed that men should
take this class. Yet she said she
felt the few men in her discussion
do not talk as openly as they
could.

"I think they're nervous about
saying something that might of-
fend all the women in the class.
People have said things that of-
fend other people, but you don't
bite their heads off," Fogel said.
"I think male bashing is a
problem people have to get away
from," Fogel said. "But when
men don't talk, that doesn't give

any of the women in the class any
insight as to what they think of
the articles or what women are
saying."
Cole said he felt surprised
more men don't take Women's
Studies classes. "You can't edu-
cate yourself if the people who
are part of the problem are not in
the classes," he said.

It

will be term limits. (They) will al-
most certainly be contested in the
courts soon."
. Term limits are almost unheard
of in the rest of the world,
Comparative Political Behavior
Prof. Ronald Inglehart said.
"In Mexico term limits are very
important in maintaining democracy
at the presidential level by rotating
elected officials. There are hardly
any cases of term limits in other
countries. In fact, I can't think of
any examples."

that many univ.ersities had previ-
ously shifted general administrative
costs to space-related costs.
Last year, the U-M received
about $72 million of the costs spent
on research. Steiss said he projects
the university will recover less than
$70 million for this year.

"We tried to get a higher rate. We
still don't think the rate is not reflec-
tive of the cost indirect for research,"
Harrison said, adding that he was
realistically hoping for a rate in the
low 50s.
"We hope to improve the level of
research. ... We will have to con-
tinue to tighten our belt on general
university expenses," Harrison said.
