look out for each other when drink-
ing.
"If you wouldn't let your best
friend bleed to death, why would you
let them drink to death?" he asked.
Green reminded students to stay
safe while intoxicated, asking that
they wear safety belts while in their
cars, refrain frm going to ATM ma-
chines alone, and keep a limit on the
amount of alcohol they consume, rec-
ommending no more than one drink
per hour.
When he was finished, students
left agreeing that Green was a power-
ful speaker with whom they could
relate.
"He seemed in touch with the stu-
dents and the fact that he'd been

through it before made us more open
to listening to him," said LSA sopho-
more Laura Shoemaker.
One student said she thought his
message was different in that it did
not condemn drinking.
"He didn't say don't drink. A lot
of people say 'just say no,' but he said
'just be responsible'," said LSA jun-
ior Dawn Montague.
And one student said her attitude
about alcohol consumption had
changed.
"When I'm at my next party, I'll
definitely take into consideration his
message which was well presented,"
said LSA sophomore Bonnie Rubin.
The event was sponsored by the
Intrafraternity Council and the
Panhellenic Association in honor of
Alcohol Awareness Week and each
Greek sorority and fraternity was re-
quired to send members to the event.

facing Detroit are the economy and
crime,"he said. "More than 338,000
Detroiters are living below the pov-
erty line and 115,000 are unem-
ployed. We've got to bring crime
down and bring more jobs to De-
troit."
But like many students, Archer
speaks about general student inter-
ests like the Michigan men's bas-
ketball team.
"I think we'll be right up there,"
he said. "I predict we'll be back in
the Final Four."
Archer, a graduate of Detroit
Country Day, played basketball
while in high school, and did re-
cruiting for Michigan's team as an
undergraduate here. He graduated
with a degree in political science.
His brother Vincent played with
DetroitCountry Day teammate Chris
Webber, who went on to play two
years at Michigan and now plays for
the Golden State Warriors.
Dennis stays in contact with
Webber, a family friend. When
asked about Webber, Archer rolls
off his stats for the first game: "17
points, 9 rebounds and a couple of
dunks."
He agrees with Webber's deci-
sion to go pro. "I'm working toward
getting a law degree. If I know I
could get out in one and a half years,
I'd do it," he said.
Archer plans to go back to De-
troit after graduation to open an en-
tertainment and sports law practice.
His brother, Vincent, is an LSA
junior and did only limited cam-
paigning, Dennis said.
Mayor-elect Archer will take
office in early January. His sons are
planning an inauguralparty for 2,500
at the State Theatre in Detroit.

morale.
"Cal. State wasn't ready for the
weather and we were," said Furqan
Nazeeri, team project manager. "I
think it says a lot. If we can beat a car
that is performing better than ours, it
says we've got a better team and a
better strategy."
The team's strategy involves plan-
ning every minute of each race day
based on the information fed by team
meteorologists and the telemetry sys-
tem that reads the solar car's energy
intake and output.
Moreover, the Maize & Blue's
array is designed to maximize solar
radiation absorption from depressed
sunlight, which helps in poor weather
because most of the other teams' ar-
rays are flat surfaces designed for an

overhead sun.
Although overcast, temperatures
continued to exceed 100 degrees.
Fierce winds swept rose-colored clay
dust across the Stuart Highway. Tues-
day, a mini tornado blasted through
the Alice Springs checkpoint.
California State University at
Pomona and George Washington
University teams were working on
their cars when the 80 kph gyrating
cloud of dust and refuse hit. Students
threw themselves across their cars to
hold the vehicles down.
Yesterday's winds were accom-
panied by lightning storms and rain.
The camper van that carries the team's
food supply and the trailer with their
stove did not arrive until late in the
evening. A hungry team feasted on
pizza they found more than 20 miles
south of their campsite.
Locusts or grasshoppers came

upon these winds and crawled into
one of the car's vent tubes.
Other than the continuing prob-
lem with the Maize & Blue's sola
array, the car is performing perfectly.
Team strategist Eric Slimko predicts
the car will reach the finish line in
Adelaide on Friday.
Race official Steve Jonas said
Dreamfinished about 124milesahead
of its archrival, Spirit of Biel III, de-
signed by Switzerland's Biel Univer-
sity. The Biel car is expected to finish
later today.
Rubbing the sleep and dust out o4
his eyes at 4:45 yesterday morning,
Andy Carmody, senior and team man,-
ager, exclaimed, "Oh man, I cannot
believe this. This has been the coolest
and worst thing all wrapped up in one.
I never thought I' dbe content running
for 10th place. I'm not content, but
it's reality and we've gotta deal."

suppress votes."
Rollins issued a statement apolo-
gizing "for any embarrassment or
mistaken impressions my remarks
created."
"This is the first time my desire to
put a spin on events has crossed the
line from an honest discussion of my
views to an exaggeration that turned
Out to be inaccurate," Rollins said. "I
went too far. My remarks left the
impression of something that was not
true and did not occur."
The Democratic State Committee
will seek a federal court order Mon-
day allowing it to take depositions
from Rollins and others in the
Whitman campaign. The party wants
to investigate whether laws were bro-
ken and whether that cost Florio the
election.
"If that's the case, we'll go to
court to seek a new election," com-
mittee Chair Ray Lesniak said.
Whitman beatFlorio49 percent to
48 percent, with a margin of about
26,620 votes out of more than 2.5
million cast lastweek. Statewide turn-
out was about 61 percent, but with

huge disparities between suburbs,
where turnout was high, and cities,
where it was low.
Whitman said she expects any
court action to be "thrown out quickly
because it is not true."
Peter Sheridan, executive director
of the Republican State Committee,
said about $50,000 was spent on
"street" operations, and that was lim-
ited to get-out-the-vote efforts. New
Jersey law allows campaigns to pay
people to help turn out voters, or to
serve as challengers at polling sites.
Sheridan said he would disclose
party spending "within a few days.
Every penny is accounted for."
At the White House, President
Clinton said that if Rollins' claims
were true, "then it was terribly wrong
for anyone to give money for anyone
else not to vote. And it was terribly

wrong for anyone to accept that
money."
Two Black ministers - Jackson,
a Florio supporter, and the Rev. Perry
Simmons Jr., aWhitman supporter-
said at Whitman's news conference
they heard of no such operation.
"Had (Rollins) not recanted that
statement, we were ready for a class
action suit because the integrity Cf
every Black preacher and every Black
parishionerin this stateison the table;''
said Simmons.
About 20 members of the Black
Ministers Council held a news con-
ference in Newark and challenged
Rollins to produce names of anybody
who took money.
"This cannot go unchallenged,;'
said the Rev. Willie Simmons. "It's
an insult to say you can buy off any
minister in this city." .

recommendation from a teaching as-
sistant.
"I sometimes write letters endors-
ing a TA's letter," said economics
Prof. Paul Courant. -
Tomake therecommendationpro-
cess easier, Career Planning & Place-
ment (CP&P) provides a filing ser-
vice. The office will provide profes-
sors with standard recommendation
forms and mail copies of the endorse-
ment to programs, schools and com-
panies.
The Reference Letter Centerkeeps
recommendations for atleast 10 years,

and currently has more than 50,000
active files for use by students, fac
ulty and alums.
"The purpose is to house letters of
recommendation to send in support of
applications to graduate school, pro-
fessional employment, scholarships
and fellowships," said center man-
ager Sherri Carrillo.
Students who want to open a recd
ommendation file must register with
the service by either calling or visit-
ing the office, which is located in the
Student Activities Building.
Peterson said the CP&P forms are
as personal as a full-fledged letter.
"I have no reason to think that
CP&P forms are anything other than
well respected," he said.
