"My hope is that we can put a
number of activities together that
aren't going to cost anyone a great
deal of money," said Director of
Orientation Pamela Horne.
Levy said, "Rather than have
people sitting around here doing
nothing ... just to come for a football
game, we want to use the extra time
The University is also consider-
ing permanently extending the fall
semester in the near future.
"That is under discussion by the
Provost's Office, but it is a virtual
certainty that it's not (in) 1993, but
1994," Levy said.
He added that all the arrange-
ments will be finalized before new
student orientation in June.
Still, the late announcement of
the change presents problems even
for people outside of the University.
"It's bad for me, definitely," said
David Wilson, area supervisor for
the Hampton Inn in Ann Arbor,
adding that he sets his special rates a
year in advance.

Wilson added that parents bring-
ing students to campus will probably
have trouble getting hotel rooms that
"The problem with (finding
rooms for) orientation is that those
are all kind of last-minute reserva-
tions," he said, adding that the hotel
is nearly full for all football week-
ends next year.
"I think there's a general feeling
that the ramifications of changing
the game from ... Sept. 18 to Sept. 4
are serious enough and effect other
units beyond housing that it would
have been helpful to have had dis-
cussion about this in advance," Levy
University Athletic Director Jack
Weidenbach apologized for the
"As far as scheduling games are
concerned, why, it's always been
delegated to the athletic director," he
said. "Nevertheless, we should have
consulted with housing in advance
and we didn't think about it.
"Early games, at least for the next
few years, are going to be normal,"
he added.

in the University are not as nurturing
as they should be for people of color.
I'm not encouraged by what I have
seen," Neidhardt said.
After the discussion on diversity,
Dean of Students Royster Harper
read letters from students and faculty
describing their personal experiences
and views of campus diversity and
"Those who are privileged some-
times do not understand the need for
just being," Harper said. "How do
we create or impose a campus that
moves from tolerating a diverse
community to embracing it?"
Assistant Dean for Under-
graduate Education David Schoem
described an "Intergroup Relations
and Conflict" class designed to
break down the barriers of race and
diversity on campus.
"I think what is exemplary about
this program is it provides a safe,
educational environment to speak
openly and honestly on these is-
sues," Schoem said.
Regent Shirley McFee (R- Battle
Creek) said she hopes discussion of
the Michigan Mandate will not be
limited to yesterday's meeting.
"I'd like to find some on-going
way to discuss this," McFee said.
Regent Philip Power (D-Ann
Arbor) agreed. "Keep struggling be-
cause we are trying to create an insti-
tution that values diverse people and
thereby get closer to the truth."

Actor Hepburn succumbs
to colon cancer at age 63

by Megan Abbott
and Aaron Hamburger
Daily Staff Reporters
What was it about Audrey
Hepburn that made her such a
unique, magical presence on the
screen? Men and women alike fell in
love with her every time she waltzed
into a movie - charging it with her
free-spirited and waifish, yet elegant,
persona. You knew you were seeing
something special when you saw an
Audrey Hepburn movie.
Hepburn died of colon cancer in
Switzerland on Wednesday. She was
Screen audiences first discovered
this natural actor when she made her
American debut in William Wyler's
"Roman Holiday" opposite Gregory
Peck. Hepburn was born to play the
role (for which she won an Academy
Award) of a princess who runs away
from her royal duties and falls in
love with a cynical journalist who
wants nothing but a good newspaper
What defined Hepburn's perfor-
mance in that movie, and all of her
films, was her ability to evoke both a
distinctly aristocratic style and a
fresh, naive vitality. America em-
braced those qualities, and made
Hepburn a star.
Hepburn collaborated with direc-

tor Billy Wilder in the lilting roman-
tic comedies "Sabrina" and. "Love in
the Afternoon," where she played
poor young women with promise of
attaining a higher social position
(perhaps a foreshadowing of her role
in "My Fair Lady").
In "Breakfast at Tiffany's"
Hepburn created her quintessential
role, the trend-setting-country-girl-
turned-socialite Holly Golightly.
Perhaps the most memorable image
of that movie is Holly in a long
black dress, emphasizing Hepburn's
sylvan figure, taking a drag on a
similarly long black cigarette holder.
Hepburn faced controversy when
she took the role of Eliza Doolittle in
"My Fair Lady," in the place of Julie
Andrews who had created the role
on Broadway. Hepburn, whose
singing was dubbed, brought a
wistful, dreamy quality to the role
and wore Cecil Beaton's outlandish
costumes with flair and aplomb.
Other actors, like Julie Christie,
might have been fashionable, but
Hepburn was style incarnate, a true
Even though she was the dugh-
ter of a baroness, Hepburn facet ' x-
treme hardship as a child in the
midst of WWII Europe. She never
forgot this, and devoted much of her
life to helping those in need, most


notably as the goodwill ambassador
for UNICEF. Despite her illness,"
Hepburn recently visited war-torn4
Hepburn was honored by the
Screen Actors Guild this month for
her lifetime commitment to the arts.
As an actor, a screen presence,
and a humanitarian, Audrey Hepburn
will be greatly missed. Her persona
embodied a brand of class and grace
rarely seen.

Ann Arbor) and Philip Power (D-
Ann Arbor) said the students' ap-
pearance at yesterday's meeting was
the first they heard about the pro-
posed termination.
School of Public Health Dean
June Osborn refused to comment on
the decision. However, Osborn did
state in a memo to Takeshita dated
Jan. 15 that fiscal problems were a
deciding factor in the decision.
"Unfortunately, (your presenta-
tions) did not offer a solution to the
pressing fiscal problem presented by
the acute shortage of seasoned fac-
ulty that will arise as of mid-1995.
That was, of course, central to the
initial decision and remains so," she
said in the memo.
The suggested guidelines, ap-
proved in October 1979 by the re-
gents, list several criteria to be eval-
uated before disbanding a depart-
ment, among those are:
quality of the program;
importance of the program to
its administrative unit;
overall cost of the program;
if a comparable program is
available within the state.
At the meeting, the students said
the International Population Fellows
Program (IPFP) and the Population

Environment Dynamics Project
(PEDP) would likely leave the
University if PPIH were terminated.
Both programs are closely related
to PPIH and are funded by govern-
ment and other outside sources.
Takeshita, Osborn and Whitaker
will meet Monday to discuss the
"I'm just going to talk with them
and hear their side of it," Whitaker
said, adding that all current students
will still be able toureceive their
Takeshita said he. does not expect
the discussion to focus on procedu-
ral questions. "We're trying to talk
about the merits of the program in
terms of what we do for the rest of
the world," he said.
"There has been a 25 percent in-
crease in enrollment. Applications
are still coming in," he added.
Although PPIH graduate student
Caroline Stem said the decision
would only have a minimal effect on
her academic career, she said it upset
her because students wanting to en-
roll in the program next year will not
be able to.
"The whole reason I chose U-M
was for their international health
program," Stem said.

"Right now everything we're

practice. There is no change at this
time," he said.

"They seem just as dedicated (as
the men)," he said. "I have never
seen any sexist occurrences."
Carla Moore, an Engineering se-
nior, also said women should not be
afraid to lift weights at the CCRB.
"I don't use the free weight room,
because it is too crowded," she said.
"Not because I feel intimidated."
Deb Webb, CCRB building
director, said she has mixed feelings
on the issue.
"There was more of this feeling
two to three years ago, but as more
and more women use the facilities
there is a snowball effect," she said.
Webb stressed the need for more
women to get in the weight room
and familiarize themselves with the
different types of equipment.
She added that any incidents or
concerns must be brought to her so9
that she may address them.
Some women advocate separate,
weight rooms for men and women.
Webb dismissed this idea, citing a
lack of space at the CCRB.
McManus suggested workout
She said she would like to see the
free weight machines interspersed
