School of Art planned to hold com-
mencement exercises exclusively for
School of Art students on the morning
ofMay 1 at RackhamAuditorium. With
the addition of Clinton speaking at an
all-school commencement, however,
Stephenson said the School of Art is
rescheduling its ceremony.
Lee Bollinger, dean of the Univer-
sity Law School, said another Clinton
administration official, Eli Siegal, the
chair of the national task force on ser-
vice, will be speaking at the University
Law school graduation.
Harrison said one reason the Uni-
versity was reluctanttorelease the name
of the commencement speaker was be-
cause the regents had not yet voted on

the 1993 honorary degree recipients.
A new University policy mandates
that the speaker will not be announced
until two weeks before graduation to
avoid the embarrassment of two years
In 1991, after announcing early in
the school year that ABC News anchor
Carole Simpson, a University alum,
would address the graduates, President
George Bush accepted an invitation from
University President James Duderstadt
to speak.
At the request of University offi-
cials, Simpson agreed to wait an addi-
tional year.
Usually, the University only bestows
honorary degrees on those with close
nent individuals.
The University is in the process of
printing letters toall graduating seniors'
parents to let them know of the change
so they can make arrangements.
Aheady scheduled individual school
graduations will take place as planned.
Clinton addressed a group of 300
University students at the University
Law school in March of 1992 to cam-
paign for her husband, former candi-
date Bill Clinton, before the Michigan
presidential primary.

Attorneys said that if the juror be-
came too sick to continue, one of three
alternate jurors would be chosen by lot
to enter the deliberations.
"The real problem is if the new juror
gets in there, they have to start all over
again," said defense attorney Harland
Braun. Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven
Clymer said he too hoped Davies
wouldn't dismiss the ill juror.

- reveals her identity.
But she also said living in a different
culture "is a great experience ... (be-
cause) you are able to understand your
own culture better."
"When you go abroad and come
back and you see the U.S., you are
probably going to see it through adiffer-
ent perspective," she said.
Viviani came to the University in
1990 with her husband. She said they
both had ambitions to work hard and
pursue careers in America.
"I started studying EnglisL - I
thought it was a very good opportunity
to pursue my graduate work," she said
It was important for Viviani to work
as a TAas a means of financial support,
but she said she was also excited about
the "unique learning experience."
Amodest woman, Viviani attributes
much of her success to her parents, who
still live in South America.
"I had very strong support from my
family," she said. "My family never
tried to pull me back. They always keep
encouraging me to stay and to do the

prived black motorist King of his civil
rights. An onlooker videotaped police
beating King after a traffic stop March
3, 1991.
In South Central Los Angeles, the
Rev. Cecil Murray was presiding at a
funeral when the judge called partici-
pants to court. When it became clear
there was no verdict, Murray asked,
"Isn't most of life anticlimactic?"
Yesterday began withastrange spec-
tacle at the downtown courthouse. Koon
and his attorney, Ira Salzman, arrived
wearing Groucho Marx-style gag
glasses with fake noses and phony mus-
"We're trying to provide a little
ers. He said the masks were given as
things that I am doing here."
Although Viviani claims she is un-
sure of her future plans, she and her
husband have drawn some blueprints,
as they are expecting a new addition to
the family in June.
"I finish school, go to Cincinnati and
have a baby," she said. "I haven't had
time to be frightened, and Ihope I don't
have time for that."
What Viviani does plan to make
time for is informing her child about the
importance of Brazilian culture.
"A great part of what I am is my
cultural identity. I don't plan specifi-
cally to teach culture to my child, but
my child will learn it through me and
my husband," Viviani said.
She added she hopes to move back
to Brazil one day, but she is very uncer-
tain about work opportunities to sup-
port her new family.
Vivianiis hoping to become a Ph.D.
candidate by the end of next fall and
continues to hold a very optimistic out-
look on life.
She said, "I have a very good feeling
right now. I'm feeling really well and
relaxed and I hope I can keep thismood.
I don't want it to change."

Students were hopeful about the
discussion's impact.
"I hope it opened some people's
eyes up.... People are so accustomed to
their lifestyles, they don't think what
the consequences of their actions are,"
said Monali Shah, an Engineering
sophomore. "Many people don't want
to question what they believed their
whole lives."

Other students said the conversation
would affect the way in which future
societies operate.
LSA first-year student Shyam
Bhatka added, "It was an intellectual
discussion of contemporary issues that
have arisen from debates and conflicts
which have been handed down from
generation to generation, and how
classical issues affect our lives today."
Last night's meeting was the last
meeting of the year for the University's
chapter of HSC.

Nelson said the department will talk
more with the Office of Affirmative
Action before coming to a decision.
"The department was trying to re-
place a small number of lecturers of
color in the Spanish department with
light-skinned lecturers," alleged a rep-
resentative of the lecturers, who spoke
on condition of anonymity.
Issues concerning racial diversity
within the department were resolved
after the Tuesday meeting between the

resentative said. "We will wait two to
three weeks. If no movement is made
toward diversity in the hiring process,
more letters will be sent."
In a letter to Jimmy Myers, interim
director of the Office of Affirmative
Action, the lecturers stated that "the
Hispanic world is large and varied. The
Spaniards are white and European."
The lecturers had originally made
allegations that they are being discrimi-
nated against by the department since
they belong to acategoryofLatinAmeri-
cans from the Caribbean, from Indian@
and mestizo backgrounds, as well as
from the Black populations of Central
and South America.
"In the next year, undergraduate stu-
dents will be surprised at the enormous
amount of renovations going on on
Central Campus," Harrison said. "In
the short term it will inconvenience us.
