and Computer Science (EECS). "I
taught in this building in 1955 and
it's gone down hill ever since."
Math instructor Denise Lee
agreed that East Engineering needs
"The heat and air conditioning
don't work and I have a classroom
upstairs that's ice cold. It needs to be
handicap accessible, the rooms are
set up poorly, they could do some-
thing with the floors and it might be
warmer if they insulated," Lee said.
"I think it needs to be renovated."
Renovations in East Engineering
will trigger changes across campus.
Hartford said office space in West
Quad - currently used by the
Psychology department - will be-
come student housing. Other de-
partments with office space now in
East Engineering will be moved.
EECS adjunct lecturer Fritz
Ruehr said he does not mind being
moved out of East Engineering be-
cause he would rather be on North
"I haven't had anyone come in
today," Ruehr said. "I think it's be-
cause I'm stuck in a corner not near
any space they know."
An English lecturer who asked
not to be named said he will not care
if his department's offices are
"We're already split up, some in
Angell, some in Haven" he said.
"It'd be lovely to be together and it's
the long-range goal ... but god
knows when that will come."
But Mathematics teaching assis-
tant Jill Halpern said she has mixed
feelings about the changes.
"I think it's a good idea to con-
solidate departments," Halpern said.
"But I don't know if it's good to for-
sake one department for another."
The Baker-Mandela Center, cur-
rently located on the first floor of
East Engineering, will also be af-
fected by the renovations.
"We're not sure at this time what
we're going to be doing. We don't
know if we're being moved to an-
other location," said Regina Freer, a
member of the Baker-Mandela
"We're worried the University
will use this as an opportunity to
take away our office space," Freer
said. "And we've yet to be officially
contacted by the University."
Some students said they thought
these renovations would complicate
"I think it will make all the other
(classrooms) worse and I don't think
they need an entire building for fac-
ulty," said LSA junior Kristin Krug.
"It better serves students than faculty
because it's easy and close to get

"It seems like an old building but
that doesn't make a difference in
how people learn and study,"
Hargrave said. "It will scatter stu-
dents all over. It seems like it'd be
more convenient to leave classes
Plane crash inIran
leaves no survivors
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - An Ira-
nian airliner with 132 people on
board collided with an air force jet
after takeoff yesterday from
Tehran's main airport and exploded
in a fireball as it plummeted into a
military compound. There were no
The leased, Russian-piloted
Tupolev airliner was bound for the
northeastern Shiite Muslim holy city
of Mashhad, and most of its 119
Iranian passengers were pilgrims.
The crew of 13 included a Russian
pilot and four other Russians. No
other foreigners were on board, avia-
tion authorities said.
The Russian-designed Sukhoi
fighter was taking part in an exercise
to mark Air Force Day, when 14
years ago its command pledged alle-
giance to Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini's Islamic Revolution -
the first armed force to do so.
Authorities gave no information
about the crew of the fighter, but
Iran's official Islamic Republic
News Agency reported the pilot and
co-pilot also were believed killed.
IRNA reporter Sattar Oudi, who
saw the accident as he drove to work
at Mehrabad Airport, said the jetliner
was about 1,300 feet high when the
collision occurred at 10:15 a.m.
"The airplane was just taking off
and the fighter came from the oppo-
site side and the two collided," he
told The Associated Press.
"The airplane fell out of the sky.
It hit the earth and exploded. There
was a very, very terrible noise, fire
and smoke," he said.
The plane fell in an empty lot in-
side a compound of Iran's Revolu-
tionary Guards Corps, 25 miles from
the center of the capital.
There were no casualties on the
ground, sentries at the base said.
The guards refused to allow non-
military personnel into the fenced
compound, turning back even foren-
sic experts. The guards said the
wreckage of Flight 962 and the bod-
ies were strewn over a 600-square-
yard open area inside the compound.
A group of anxious relatives
gathered at the airport, most of them
weeping into their hands.
A man in civilian clothes stood
on the roof of a military car to read
the list of victims. As he read each
name, cries and screams erupted
from the crowd.
"My sister, my sister, What a dis-
aster! What Misery!" wailed one
woman as she banged her head
against the bars of a metal gate.

HIV infection until they are 7 or 8
The risk of vertical transmission
has been reduced by general im-
provements in AIDS care - specifi-
cally the AZT drug treatment, which
inhibits viral replication, reducing
the amount of active virus in the
Additionally, the National
Institute of Health will be initiating a
study on "vaginal cleansing" -
cleansing the vagina and birth canal
with disinfectants during labor - in

A 1992 study on twins and HIV
infection showed that the first born
was much more likely than the sec-
ond to contract the HIV infection.
Although no explanation for this has
been confirmed, experts said it may
be because the first child is in closer
contact with the mother's secretions
Schuman said this study will
probably raise the question of
cesarean section as a possible way to
reduce transmission rates. However,
experts today generally believe
cesarean delivery does not reduce
Prostitution is another topic that
often comes up when discussing
AIDS risks. But experts said it is a
misconception that prostitution
perpetuates the spread of HIV
"The women most often stereo-
typed to be infected with HIV are
prostitutes and drug injectors, how-
ever most of our women just don't
fit this," Schuman said.
"Most of paid sex is oral sex - it
is very rare that a man gets HIV
from a prostitute," she added, ex-
plaining that a prostitute - or any
woman - is more at risk to get HIV
than to transmit it.
Despite research and progress
concerning women and AIDS,
Schuman said awareness remains
"The problem with women is that
they are not aware of (HIV risks).
As a result, we are seeing that
women get diagnosed very late -
much later than men," she said.
One female patient said being a
woman with AIDS is particularly
"AIDS is aggravating for women
because you especially have the feel-
ing of being a minority," said the
patient, who spoke anonymously.

the corner of Thompson and
The students responsible for
putting up the sign say they do not
feel it is insulting or deserves at-
"I think that this whole thing has
gotten blown out of proportion,"
said Dan, one of the residents of the
room containing the sign. Neither
student wished to be identified be-
cause they do. not want to be the
targets of harassment.
"I'm not trying to offend any one
... it's just a simple joke," Dan said.
Charles, the other resident, said
he thinks people are overreacting.
"They're reading deeper into it than
they should be ... We also know
many other people - both male and
female - who are not offended by
it," he added.
The sign was put up at the be-
ginning of winter semester. In re-
sponse, de Avila contacted West
Quad Resident Director Tricia
Inman as well as members of the
University administration to ask for

residents are protected by the First

proached by staff, but chose not to
take the sign down," Inman said.
de Avila contacted University
offices as well, including the Sexual
Assault Prevention and Awareness
Center (SAPAC). SAPAC Director
Debi Cain agreed to help de Avila
distribute the petition.
"I see (the sign) as insensitive -
very insensitive - and I think it is
offensive to a lot of women, myself
included," Cain said.
Charles and Dan said de Avila
never contacted them personally.
"It seems to me that a petition is
unnecessary. If one woman had hon-
estly been offended and come to me
and explained it, I probably would
have taken it down," Dan said.
"It's very ironic that on this cam-
pus where everyone is complaining
about freedom of speech - the Diag
thing or the code - that we
shouldn't be allowed to use ours,
Many West Quad residents said
they did not know that the sign ex-
isted, but felt it was disrespectful.
"It just shows a lack of respect
for women," said Heather Tans, an
LSA first-year student. "Is that the

"Twenty years ago public life
was made of serious issues like the
economy and private life consisted
of family and personal issues. Now
we can't talk about them as if they
were separate," Vicinus said.
Vicinus described her outlook on
life as optimistic. In class, she fo-
cused briefly on Victorian teachers
who complained because their stu-
dents were not mathematicians and
struggled with arithmetic.
"At least students today can do
math," Vicinus said.
June Howard, associate professor
of English, nominated Vicinus for
the award. She said Vicinus helps
women by serving as a model for
Vicinus notes the changing nature
of academia. She said she has
pushed the boundaries of conven-
tional teaching, exploring women's
studies and gay and lesbian issues.
"Since I teach a lot about women
I can see some of the mistakes of the
past. I think it's important that we
make ourselves replaceable," Vici-
Christine Cipriani, an LSA senior
in Vicinus' class, said she was aware
of Vicinus' fame when she regis-
tered for the class. She said it dis-
cusses single women who lived in
the Victorian Era. The students read
literature, original documents and@
Vicinus' colleagues in the de-
partment said they respect her exper-
tise and work ethic.
Fellow English Prof. Richard
Bailey said, "She is a totally com-
mitted person who gives more than
all of her time to her professorship."
