Students, Buddhists ready
to say 'Hello,' Dalai Lama

HE CAN FLY!

By DAVID SHEPARDSON
DAILY STAFF REPORTER.
The Dalai Lama, the Buddhist
spiritual leader and recipient of the
1992 Nobel Peace Prize, will receive
the Wallenberg medal during a four-
day visit to Ann Arbor in April.
Details have been trickling out since
early this summer when the LSA de-
velopment office first confirmed that
the Dalai Lama would deliver the
1993 fourth annual RaoulWallenberg
memorial lecture.
In accommodating the exiled
Tibetian monk's schedule, the Uni-
versity postponed the event, usually
held in the fall, to next April.
In addition toholding several events
at the University, including meetings
with high school students, University
students and faculty members inter-
estedin "conflictresolution," theDalai

Lama will facilitate activities with
the Ann Arbor Buddhist community.
No plans were made to select stu-
dents formeeting with the Dalai Lama.
Well known for his protesting of
the Chinese occupation of Tibet, the
Dalai Lama has been working to free
political prisoners and restore home
rule to Tibet. He recently appeared
with actor Richard Gere and super
model Cindy Crawford, and said he
encourages peaceful demonstrations
against a "repressive and intolerant"
government.
Walter Harrison, vice president
for University relations, said many
details have to be worked out, includ-
ing accomodating the large number
of people who will want to attend
events.
"We want to make sure that both
members of the University commu-

nity and Buddhist community will
have a chance to attend events,"
Harrison said.
Large numbers of Buddhists as far
away as Chicago and Toronto are
expected to attend events.
The Dalai Lama will stay with a
significant entourage at the Bell Tower
Hotel during his visit.
Donald Lopez, an Asian languages
and Buddhist studies professor cur-
rently on sabbatical at the University
of North Carolina, is coordinating the
event with the Dalai Lama's Ameri-
can office, which is located in New
Jersey.
The medal is named for Raoul
Wallenberg, a University alum and a
diplomat, who worked to save thou-
sands of Hungarian Jews from the Na-
zisby distributing Swedish certificates
ofprotection.

Power loss
proves it's
smart to save
By CARRIE BISSEY
and DAVID SOMMER
FOR THE DAILY
A brief power outage left some
students grieving over lost words of
wisdom at the Angell-Haven com-
puting site yesterday.
"I lost four pages of my paper, I
have an exam tomorrow and now I'm
really stressed," said LSA senior Se-
renity McCoon.
The power outage occurred around
3:15 p.m. and lasted approximately
five minutes.
University Power Turbine Operator
John Blassic explained, "The cause of
the outage has not been determined, but
it is currently under investigation."
"Everyone was sort of standing
around in disbelief," said Liz Collins,
an LSA sophomore who had just
started her paper before the outage.
But some people did more than
just stand around. Computing Center
Monitor Bob McPherson, an LSA
senior, said, "One guy yelled, I'm0
gonna sue!"'
The moral of the story according
to Ed Boyak, an LSA first-year stu-
dent, who lost two pages of work, "It
is stupid not to save your paper."

Finally, she said a single-payer
system (like Canada's) would be much
more desirable and would, according
to Pollack, cut $100 billion out of the
federal deficit.
Udow agreed with Pollack that a
single-payer system would be more
efficient than the co-pay proposal

Event organizers have been plan-
ning the week since April. The range
of people contributing to its success
spans the entire city and University.
"One of our goals was to create a
sense of community among depart-
ments of the University and commu-
nity organizations that have never
worked together for a common pur-
pose. I think that AIDS awareness
week has definitely shown that it can
happen," Hoffman said.

Yesterday, Budzyn's lawyer,
Michael Batchelor, said he planned to
file an emergency motion later in the
day with the Michigan Court of Ap-

he appeals the murder conviction.
NAACP Detroit President the Rev.

Wendell Anthony said callers making
the threats seem tohold him and Execu-

for the convictions of the ex-officers.
"The threats have ranged from
wanting to wreak retribution against
the NAACP specifically, and perhaps
against Wendell Anthony and Ms.
Watson particularly," Anthony said.

"The Clinton plan will make more
bureaucracy, not less," she said.
Udow said her company generally
likes the ambition of the plan, but
added that insurers who exclusively
select low-risk patients will not like
provisions prohibiting discrimination
against people who have pre-existing
health conditions. 0
Udow, like Pollack, was critical
of the Clinton administration's claim
that the plan will reduce the deficit.

"Simply Safe: A Safer Sex Work-
shop," one of the week's highlights.
She shared Hoffman's enthusiasm
about the upcoming events and their0
impact on the community.
"I feel that this is one of the most
energetic series of programs over the
longest period of time that this Uni-
versity has ever seen," she said. "I
hope that it is successful and that we
can build on this effort and carry it
over to future years. It has been such
a wonderful collaboration of the dif-
ferent units of the University."
Jim Toy, a member of the plan-
ning committee, said he hopes mem-
bers of University community will be
inspired by the week to further in-
volve themselves in campus and na-
tionwide AIDS projects.
