EVIDENCE
Continued from page 1
selling cocaine in off-campus
housing is no longer accused of a
statement violation.
"He came in and he said he
didn't do it," Antieau said. "I've
investigated and there isn't sufficiernt
evidence to send it on to the next
level. He is no longer an accused
under the policy."
Antieau said she is pleased the
case has been dropped.
"It makes me happy because it's
a (Department of Public Safety)
referral. There are a lot of concerns
that every time DPS sends us
something, the student is im-
mediately guilty and that's not true,"
Antieau said. "I'm pleased the
system worked in a positive way."
Antieau said she accused the
student because when she received
the charge from DPS, she thought

police had already pressed charges
against him.
"I don't think it had been
dismissed when I got the file but
when he came in, they had been
dismissed and so the charges were
also dropped here," Antieau said.
Antieau said the student's name
will not be tied to any official
University documents since the
charge was dropped.
"There's no official anything. It
becomes part of our historical file,"
Antieau said. "There is no official
recorded link with his name because
there is no violation."
Antieau added that she does not
believe the student was adversely
affected by the charges made against
him.
"He was very sure from the
initial point with me. He knew the
charges were dropped and the case
would be as well," Antieau said. "I
have no reason to believe this was
upsetting to him personally."

AcCUSED

ment.
"I was like, 'That cop was right.
He's going to get me,"' White said.
"First the eviction letter and then
this."
When he received the letter,
White said he did not completely
understand what the policy was.
"I had glanced at the articles in
the Daily but I didn't know the
specifics," White said. "I thought it
was only in the Union or some-
thing."
White said a mistake in the
Office of Student Affairs
compounded his confusion.
"They were supposed to send a
copy of the Rights and
Responsibilities but someone forgot
to put it in (the envelope)," he ex-
plained.
White met with Anticau Feb. 26.
During their 20-minute meeting
White said Antieau explained the
charges made against him. He then
wrote his response to the charges
and signed a release form allowing
Antieau to talk to his mother and
lawyer.
White said he was frustrated with
the meeting.
"As this point I said, 'The police
didn't file any charges. How are you
going to do this to me?"' White said.
"I felt like my due process was
being violated. I felt like I had to

prove I was innocent when they
should have had to prove I was
guilty."
Before White left her office,
Antieau told him he had seven days
to tell the University what hearing
process he desired for his case. An
accused can select mediation by a
neutral party, an administrative
hearing, or hearing by a six-member
student panel. White said he did not
call Antieau back for two-and-one
half weeks.
"They never contacted me at all
so I called them and she said they
were still working on it so, 'Don't
worry, we'll get back to you,"'
White said.
White said he was surprised by
Antieau's reaction to his tardy call.
"When I called back it was a
lackadaisical attitude," White said.
"I thought they were going to say,
'You missed your cutoff. We
already decided your case. You're
gone.' But they were running around
trying to figure out all the specifics."
White did not hear from the
University again until he received a
letter Saturday informing him his
case had been dropped due to
insufficient evidence.
"They should let me know what's
going on," White said. "When they
found out something they should
have let me know immediately. But
that didn't happen."

CELEBRATION
Continued from page 1
of crowd controls we can put in
place to disperse a crowd if it be-
comes rowdy, and to do that at the
first sign the crowd is in anything
other than a party atmosphere,"
Melby said.
Mayor Liz Brater created a 30-
member Safe Celebration Task
Force last May to address the same
problem. The group - with repre-
sentatives from the administration,
city, police and student community
- met Friday.
"We're just really supportive of
the Michigan basketball team. We're
working to ask people to try to
provide the opportunity for us to
celebrate in a way that's safe for
everyone," Brater said.
Maureen Hartford, vice president
for student affairs, said the
University is also working to ensure
safe celebrations in other locations.
"Basically, we're trying to create
a new tradition for students to cele-
brate in an area that isn't full of
plate-glass windows," Hartford said.
At the request of a number of
student groups, Hartford said the
University has reserved Crisler
Arena and plans to show the Final
Four game on televisions located
throughout the auditorium.
But some students said they
would not go to Crisler Arens be-

cause they prefer the atmosphere of
a bar.
"I came (to a bar) last Sunday. It
was really fun," said LSA senior
Simon Goldberg. "The atmosphere
is incredible. It's just like being in an
arena."
But Polk Wagner, Interfraternity
Council president, disgreed saying
students at other schools have been
sharing spirit in a university-
sponsored location for years.
"We might as well get into the
tradition of being together and cele-
brating," Wagner said. "There's no
reason that Michigan can't do this
too."
Despite planning, some students
still believe a riot will occur if the
Wolverines win a Final Four game.
"Definitely, there will be a riot,"
said Jake Brown, an LSA first-year
student.
Goldberg agreed. "It'll be crazy.
Because of what happened last year,
more people will riot."
Last year, AAPD officers tear-
gassed a crowd of students-gathered
in the streets to celebrate.
If a celebration takes place this
year, Harrison said he hopes it is
safer than those in the past.
"We all know the last two times
we made it to the Final Four, we
ended up having an ugly incident,"
Harrison said. "I've been here for
two of these and we haven't done it
right yet."

is reflected in the government.
"We need to have proportional
representation so that every person
in Ann Arbor could have a vote,"
Raaflaub said.
But Hanna-Davies, who is the di-
rector of the Interfaith Council for
Peace and Justice, rejected this idea.
She said Democrats should maintain
a council majority in Ann Arbor be-
cause they have been able to manage
a tight budget.
"It has been the current Demo-
cratic majority in City Hall that has
brought the city from a deficit to a
surplus through careful management
of money," Hanna-Davies said.
But Raaflaub, who has other an-
swers to the current economic situa-
tion, said he wants to cut taxes by
privatizing city services and reduc-
ing city bureaucracy. He said the
council needs to freeze hiring and
cut everything in the budget that is
"unnecessary."
"Government tends to perpetuate
itself and protect its own workers,"
Raaflaub said. "They protect jobs at
the expense of raising taxes. As a
way of tax relief, we need to priva-
tize everything that needs to be pri-
vatized."
Hanna-Davies offered another
method to save taxpayers' money -
to focus on crime prevention rather
than punishment.

Hanna-Davies, who said she
plans to take a lead on increasing
funding for drug treatment to prevent
crime, indicated that it costs $30,000
a year to incarcerate one person in
jail for minor crimes.
"We should be focused on pre-
vention to save costs," Hanna-
Davies said. "It is dangerous to focus
on incarceration as preventing
crime."
Raaflaub said the city should
make it easier for citizens to prevent
crimes by allowing them to carry
arms, specifying that women should
be able to protect themselves from
rape and assault.
"Police cannot be at the* scene
quick enough to always prevent a
crime," Raaflaub said.
Both candidates said they hope to
get more students to voice their con-
cerns with city government.
"Students have a tremendous
amount to offer and are sometimes
not regarded as equal. It is a big loss.
I believe in working with people and
not over them," Hanna-Davies said.
"In general, people who are under-
age are under appreciated, disre-
garded and undervalued. This is a
big mistake."
Raaflaub said he would like to
bring "a greater amount of freedom
to University students."
"The University has few alterna-
tive political thinkers. Students are
the future. We need them to carry on
the tradition of freedom in this coun-
try," Raaflaub said.

They marched onto Red Square
behind five tractors decorated with
pictures of Yeltsin.
What began as an enthusiastic
rally in support of the president
erupted into a mutual display of
emotion when he appeared on a

platform at the base of St. Basil's
Cathedral while legislators voted on
a motion to remove him.
The crowd chanted his name and
waved hundreds of white, blue and
red Russian flags.
"A Communist coup has failed.
The people have won," he happily
told the crowd.
