,forced to turn back after 132 miles,
after realizing that reaching Prof.
Martin Green would require too much
kangaroo dodging and use too much
gas.
But team members were able to
confer with Green, who confirmed
atheir worst fears - faulty silver tabs
are causing the problems with the
array. The 18,000 tabs connect photo-
voltaic cells to the car's battery and
motor.

can'tdiagnose the disease,"Ross said.
"t's so frustrating. If the damn array
worked, we'd be up around third
place."*
Bathed in generator-produced
light, members of the electronics and
battery team performed systems
checks ater the meeting. Meanwhile,
other team members set off for camp-
sites of other teams hoping to find
some spare flux.
Team members plan to use flux to
clean the glass encasings of Maize
and Blue's solar cells. When they are
clean, they will be resoldered to their
tabs, possibly generating more power
and allowing for better conduction of
electrical current.
"We are going to look for flux to
try to get rid of the losses (in wattage)
in the array. It's abellof a task, but we
have nothing better to do now," said
Project Manager Furqan Nazeeri.
At the endof the thirdday, Honda's
Dream still led the race despite en-
gine problems. Two other collegiate
teams -Northern Territory Univer-
sity and CaliforniaStateUniversity at
Los Angeles - slipped ahead of
Maize and Blue.
Ross added that cloudy forecasts
for the next couple of days should
help the University's team.
"The weather is turning cloudy,
which will take some of our array
disadvantages away," he said. "We
hope to be able to take advantage of
the poor weather and other teams'
mistakes."

WASHINGTON (AP)-The Su-
preme Court strengthened workers'
protection against sexual harassment
yesterday, ruling unanimously that
employers can be forced to pay mon-
etaury daages even when employees
suffer no psychological harm.
"So long as the environmentwould
reasonably be perceived, and is per-
ceived, as hostile or abusive, there is
no need for it also to be psychologi-
cally injurious," Justice Sandra Day
O'Connor wrote as the court revived
a Tennessee woman's lawsuit against
her ex-boss.
The woman said her boss, among
other things, had asked her to retrieve
coins from his front pants pocket,
suggested they go to a local motel to
negotiate her pay raise and asked if
she gained a sales contract by provid-
ing sexual favors.
"It's a big win for women," said
Marcia Greenberger of the National
Women's Law Center of the ruling. "I

don't think the court could have sent
a clearer signal that employers have
to take sexual harassment in the work-
place seriously."
The 9-0 vote emphasized that
"sexual harassment is just as much a
violation of the law as other forms of
discrimination," Greenberger said.

The decision comes at atime when
complaints of alleged sexual harass-
ment in employment are increasing.
The Equal Employment Opportu-
nity Commission says such com-
plaints rose 53 percent in the year
following Anita Hill's accusations
during Justice Clarence Thomas' 1991

Members of the recently-formed
group, Futurist Think Tank, have plas-
tered campus with hundreds of fliers
urging students to voice support for
the agreement, which would remove
all trade barriers among Mexico,
Canada and the United States.
Alex Bokov, a founding member
of the group, said NAFTA's passage
is critical.
"This is the most important event
since the end of the Cold War and the
fall of the Berlin Wall," Bokov said.
Under the banner "If you think
NAFTA doesn't affect you, think
again," the flier urges students to write
or call Rep. Bill Ford (D-Ypsilanti),
who opposes the agreement.

rejected when the House votes Nov.
17:
* Our economy may get much
worse because we will be unable to
compete with a unified Europe and
the Pacific Rim.
* Environmental legislation will
meet stronger opposition, because
economic arguments against it will
seem to bear more weight.
We will be setting an isolation-
ist example for the rest of the world.
With all Michigan Democrats and
all but one of the Republicans in Con-
gress against the pact, Futurist Think
Tank faces an uphill fight to change
Ford'smind. He announced his oppo-

sition to the pact months ago and
aides say he is unlikely to change his
position.
Bokov said the group will work
toward "improving the human condi-
tion."
"With the end of a bi-polar world,
traditional political labels are mean-
ingless," he said. "It is time to tran-
scend labels and support an issue so
critical to our economic future."
Futurist Think Tank, a non-parti-
san, pro-science policy group held its
organizational meeting last Tuesday.
Members will be holding a "sign-in"
in the Fishbowl today, tomorrow and
Monday for students who would like
to write in opposition to Ford.

a contingent of television and news-
paper reporters.
Bill Lowry, state chair of the Col-
lege Republicans and an LSA senior,
said his group prohibits early endorse-
ments of Republican candidates.
Currently, Youth For Engler is the
only other Republican student com-
mittee on campus. It is up to the cam-
paigns to contact students to form
student chapters, Lowry said.
The 50-year-old Romney gradu-
ated from Michigan State University
with a B.A. in Education, and cur-

rently is a talk show host for WXYT
Radio in Detroit. She is the daughter-
in-law of the late George Romney, a
1968 presidential candidate.
Romney wasaco-chairofthe 1972
Nixon campaign in Utah and has raised
money for Republican candidates for
nearly 20 years. She was a co-chair of
the finance committee for the Reagan-
Bush '84 campaign.
Romney's campaign literature
fashions pictures of her with Repub-
lican Presidents George Bush and
Ronald Reagan to illustrate her expe-
rience on presidential commissions.
"I have served as chairman of the
President's Commission on White
House Fellowships and the White
House Commission on Presidential
Scholars, in addition to serving as a

confirmation hearing.
Hill said Thomas had harassed her
years earlier, but Thomas strongly
denied any such conduct.

Gore accused Perot of repeatedly
playing fast and loose with the facts,
saying he had predicted 40,000 Ameri-

war and that 100 banks would .fail

"You were wrong," Gore said as he
eyed Perot. "The politics of negativ-

U.S. Rep. Dave Camp, (R-Mid-

will seek the nomination himself, said@
in an interview he was pleased with
Romney's entrance.
"A wide field of candidates is ben-
eficial," he said. "It will help us find
the best candidate to fill the seat."
Camp declined to comment on
whether he will enter the race.
With 51 weeks until the election,

he said giving several examples of
students waiting on financial aid
checks to help pay for books and rent.
"It's ridiculous for more than half
the term to go by and students who
depend on loans for rent and food
haven't received them," said Robin

Previously, students filled out a
form as thick as a small booklet when
applying for aid. But the process has
been reduced by cutting more than
half the questions from the form.
Students like LSA senior Stephen
Broyles are concerned about not be-
ing able to register for Winter Term
because of hold credits on their ac-
counts.
Nowak laid this concern to rest.
"If students find out they have a hold
credit, and we've notified them that
they have a loan, we give a memo (to
clear the hold credit) so people can
CRISP."
But, Nowak warns, "If (students)
haven't heard anything in the past six
to eight weeks, they should definitely
come in and check on their loans. No
one should be waiting longer than
