Collins became interested in genet-
ics while he was a postdoctoral fellow at
"While I was at Yale, I became inter-
ested in the issue of how to find genes

ahead of time what's wrong- which is
the case with most genetic diseases," he

to ideas. He manages to

-Danielo Tagle
Collins' colleague
Collins began his research on the
cystic fibrosis gene in 1986 and success-
fully cloned it by 1989 - acquiring
fame at the early age of 38.
His latest triumph, the collaborative
effort on the cloning of the gene that is
the cause of Huntington's Disease, adds.
to his long list of accomplishments.
Now, Collins has a new challenge in
front of him.
The Human Genome Project.

Continued from page 1

His responsibilities will include di-
recting the effort to set the priorities and
goals for the project - to have fairly
complete maps of the genes that make
up man by 1995 and detailed sequences
of the genes by the year 2005.
Watson left the position due to tense
relations with Bernadine Healy, the head
of NIH.
However, Collins holds no griev-
ances with Watson.
"I think Jim did a wonderful job of
setting this project in motion and defi-
ing thepriorities and I have no particular
quarrels with what has gone on in the
first couple ofyears. Tome, its really the
challenge of wheredowe go from here,"
Collins said.
One of Dr. Collins' main concerns is
government funding for the project.
"The budget for this year was $106
million. It should have been $200 mil-
lion by now. Its only a half of what it
should have been and because of that
there are things that are just not being
developed and sooner or later we're
going to see a crisis develop," he said.
However, he is hopeful that funding
will improve.
"Generally, the response from the
Clinton administration is that (the Hu-
man Genome Project) is a good thing,"
Collins said.

Finegold agreed that those who use
derogatory terms should be corrected.
But he said it was important for those
who disliked a term to not use it.
"If other people hear Jews using
('JAP'), then it's okay," he said.
Kashen responded simply, "It rein-
forces anti-Semitism."
In recent years, students have be-
come self-conscious when using words
associated with gays and lesbians such
as "queer."
Coordinator of the Lesbian and Gay
Males Programs Office Jim Toy said he
feels the current political awareness
originates from a 1984 discrimination
and harassment policy instituted by
University President Harold Shapiro.
This policy, however, exempted exter-
nal agencies from compliance.
As a residence hall advisor, Social
Work graduate student Susanna Short
would hear students shouting words like
"dyke" at her. She found the blatant
degradation offensive.
"A lot of (lesbian) women use the
word 'dyke,' though," she said, grant-
ing that opinions within the lesbian and
gay community differ.
On a personal level, Short said she
does not like the definitions associated
with "dyke."
"I don't tend to use it. I don't like the
image that it gives," she said, picturing
a "big, butch woman. It really just isn't
who I am."
While some people do nothesitate to

'It's to express how
stupid these terms are.
We decry terrorism
more than (non-Arabs)
do. That's what makes
it funny.'
Abdal-Majid Katranji
LSA first-year student
correct the use of derogatory terms,
Short and Toy said they have been wary
of defending themselves since it would
entail disclosing unapparent identities.
"I felt powerlessness, rage, shame,
because I didn't have the courage," Toy
Even now, however, he wonders
about the value of condemning deni-
grating remarks. There is the risk, he
said, of being beaten up by larger people
when commenting on their ignorance.
But turning away frustrates him fur-
ther. He said, "When I don't (correct
them), I feel guilty, like I'm betraying
my constituency."
But Short noted that all the pressure
should not be applied to the oppressed
group to fight isms.
She said, "It's important for straight
people to confront homophobia, too.
We can'tjust leave it to the gay commu-
Short recalled a time at work when a
co-worker made a snide remark about
gays in her presence. Straight friends
who knew she was a lesbian did not say
anything until after the crowd around
her co-worker dispersed. Neither did

Claiming a fear of violating the privacy rights of students who are
charge dunder the Statement of Student Rights and Res ponsibili-
ties, the University has refused to release any specific information
about charges or outcomes of hearings filed under the policy.
Instead, Mary Lou Antieau, the judicial advisor of the statement,
will release weekly statistical summaries. The following alleged
violations were reported since last Tuesday, March 30:
nine cases of alleged hazing;
two cases of alleged physical assault, battery or
three cases of alleged fraud against the University;
five cases of alleged unauthorized taking or possession of
property or services of another;
two cases of alleged damage or destruction of property
belonging to another;
two cases of alleged illegal entry into University facilities;
one case of alleged harassment, defined as physical force,
violence or behavior; and,
seven cases of unlawful possession, use, manufacture,
sale or distribution of alcohol or other drugs.

2. How many hours of classroom instruction do you offer?
3. Can I get extra help from my instructor?
4. Do you use actual test materials? -_

of the term. This same data will also be
presented to the University Board of
Regents at its April meeting.
"If we reveal (any additional infor-
mation) it will be too obvious who's
involved," Antieau said. "I hope that
when we have a few more decisions we
can release the information, but at this
point (people) might be able to link the
potential violation to a person."
Antieau saidmoreinformation could

be released in the future.
"Once we get asufficient number of
cases, so giving information won't pro-
vide a potential link (to a student), there
will be more data released," Antieau
But Van Houweling said this interim
process is unacceptable.
"It means there's absolutely no way
to evaluate the code," Van Houweling
said. "It's closed justice. We can't even
see what happens and we don't know if
it's legitimate."
