has a number of requirements - the
amount of writing space students have
to take the test, space between students.
You can't use places like the standard
auditoriums. Then there is the training
of the test supervisors."
The exam will be given in Angell
Hall Auditoriums C and D.
Louis Rice, chief pre-professional
advisor in LSA, said he was pleased
ETS reversed its decision. "I think some
people at the University worked hard to
accomplish this," he said. "Certainly

more than one person contacted ETS
and they put a lot of effort into trying to
right this wrong."
Students expressed satisfaction that
ETS agreed to open a test site on cam-
pus, but wonder if the decision gives
them too little, too late.
"The deadline for registration was
the 19th of March. Students are starting
to get their placements. It's just kind of
unfortunate that it had to happen this
late," said Brian Little, an LSA junior.
Like many University MCAT can-
didates, Little did notput the University
down as a test site choicesbecause Ann
Arbor was notlisted as an available site.

EVACUATION
Continued from page 1
aftemoon, cautioned to watch for recur-
ring symptoms.
Jim Magas, the sales representative
of Harry's Army Surplus, reported his
suspicion about the chemical to the
police when he noticed people cough-
ing while running out of the bank min-
utes after the sale.
"(The men) didn'tseem to be typical
customers. They were slightly drunk
and very anxious. They almost knocked
me over toget to it,"Magas said. "I went
on my own gut feeling. When I saw
people coughing, I put two and two
together."
Magas explained that the chemical,
known as pepper mace due to its 2
percent concen tration of acayenne pep-
per derivative, inflames tissue in respi-
ratory passages and mucus membranes.
Theresults, which typically lastfrom
30to60minutes, can range from cough-
ing and dizziness to severe burning and

temporary blindness.
Police have not confirmed that pep-
per mace was the chemical inhaled by
the employees.
Though the bank employees techni-
cally experienced only indirect expo-
sure to the suspected chemical, Magas
said the effects may have been magni-
fied by the humidity and the lack of
ventilation in the compact space of the
bank.
Magas indicated the men bought an
approximately half-ounce can, which
can be purchased for approximately 10
dollars.
AAFD Battalion Chief Dean Kapp
said the charges for the incident have
not yet been determined but that inves-
tigations are continuing.
AAPD Staff Sgt. Joseph Campbell
said that the event is not as dangerous as
originally perceived.
"It doesn't appear to be anything
serious at this point," Campbell said.
"But we had to treat it that way in the
interest of safety."

FORESTS

asset. Research brings money," he said.
Despite the $30,000 per year which
is spent to conserve the land, the areas
are in poor condition, Morton said.
"S tinchfield Woods is the world's
worstexample of how a forest should be
taken care of," Morton said.
The problem with preserving the
lands began in the early 1980s when the
University, due to the recession, elimi-
nated the positions of the three full-time
caretakers of the properties. The re-
sponsibility for upkeep now rests on
volunteers.
"Teaching counts, but publications,
grants and research count a whole lot
more. Faculty have understandably not
been interested in running the proper-
ties. There is no perceived payoff in
doing that," Morton said.
However, Dietsch stated that the
poor condition of these forests offers a
unique opportunity toexperimentin the

Presidential supporters also say the@

"We have the opportunity to try dif-
ferent approaches as long as the lands
stay under our control. If it is funding
thatwe need, I betwe could getafederal
grant for such a project," Dietsch said.
Not all students are against the sale.
Noah Hall, a first-year SNRE stu-
dent, said he feels the revenue from the
sales outweighs the loss of land and
opportunities for continued research.
"Graduate students complain that
there are not enoughTA(teaching assis-
tant) positions and undergraduates com-
plain that the courses are overbooked,"
he said. "This is a way to get capital and
correct that."
Hall added that the sale of Camp
Filbert Roth would leave more money
to care for the other properties.
But if the lands are sold, theUniver-
