word as a series of dots, the "Trojan
Horse" showed the actual password.
That should have raised a red flag,
said ITD User Advocate Manager
Laurie Burns. Krause said he was
startled to see his actual password
displayed, but he proceeded to work
on a physics take-home exam.
Two days later, acomputer hacker
apparently used Krause's e-mail ac-
count to distribute the racist e-mail to
about 30 Usenet discussion forums.
The Usenet groups included forums
for fans of McDonald's restaurants
and for activists and automobile col-

gation into the incident the next day,
spurred by hundreds of angry phone
calls and letters. The investigation
has yielded few clues, and investiga-
tors admit the culprit may never be
The e-mail note sent under
Krause's name illustrates the sophis-
tication of some computer hackers -
and the University's difficulty in stay-
ing a step ahead.
"We started these conversations
(on password security) months ago,
but the problem is that technology
changes so fast that it's hard to keep
up with it," said Virginia Rezmierski,
assistant to the vice provost for infor-
"It has to be a concerted effort
across campus," Rezmierski added.
Among the options ITD officials
are discussing are caller identifica-
tion for modem users and a central
computer that boots up terminals in
University computing sites.

e-mail account and put the episode
Of his recent experiences with e-
mail, Krause shakes his head and says
only, "It's been surreal."

through a student referendum. Roberts
said students should decide on whether
to withdraw from the coalition.
"We think they should run a
counter-referendum to see if this 35
cents should go to something else,"
With MSA's withdrawal, eight of
the 15 public universities in Michi-
gan are now members in MCC. The
other two large research universities
in Michigan - Wayne State Univer-
sity and Michigan State University
(MSU) - are not members in MCC.
MSU pulled out of MCC this year
and Wayne State has never been an
In order to fill the lobbying void,
the proposal requires a representative
from MSA's executive officers and
the External Relations Committee to
lobby in Lansing at least three days
during each week this summer.
For the upcoming year, MSA may
look at having its own lobbyist work
on behalf of students in Lansing.
University Vice President forGov-
ernment Relations Richard Kennedy
offered to allow MSA use of its Lan-
sing office, but an amendment to th
proposal prohibits this. The amend
ment requires MSA to have separate
offices from University lobbyists.
Law school Rep. Amy Braley said
the proposals offered did not provide
a responsible alternative.
"It's an issue that we need to be
concerned about and I didn't think it
should have been resolved this
quickly," Braley said.

- were collected but not deposited.
In a letter sent yesterday to senior
staff members, Mucha explained the
council's poor financial condition.
"I was informed that council col-
lects hall dues and turns them in to
SOAS by some time mid-fall," he said.
Reneka Edwards, who was then
president of house council, appar-
ently did not deposit the collected
fees in a timely fashion. The house
dues were not turned in until January
and "an immediate rush was made to
retain the funds and get them depos-
ited into the account," the letter said.
Edwards resigned from house
council in February.
In addition, the list of residents
who had paid their dues could not be
located during the transition period.
"What we did not understand is
that the list of residents that paid was
misplaced in the shuffle, and no fur-
ther record is even made of the checks
that are turned into SOAS," it read.
An official in the Housing Divi-
sion said Edwards turned over $18,000
before she resigned. The council usu-
ally collects about $24,000 from its
In a meeting Monday with staff
members, another letter from Mucha
was read, indicating a shortfall in dues.
"The council had $6,000 less
turned in this year by the students
than we should have," the letter stated
Kevin Kashawlic, treasurer of the
Markley council, also sent a letter to
Markley residents yesterday that read,
"Despite the late cashing of Hall Dues,
not every one has paid. If you have
not yet paid Hall Dues, you will not be
allowed to CRISP this week."
Max Chu, acting president of the
Markley council, said failures in the
system prevented the shortfall front
being discovered earlier.
SOAS is required to give the Hous-
ing director a monthly report listing the
account balance. "The system never
gave the reports this year. They should
have been given to our building direc-
tor," Chu said. "We never knew if the
money had been deposited. We knew
the money was collected," he added.

Coppola and organizers chose the
topic for this year's speech, and
tonight's forum also includes a hand-
ful of his colleagues to speak on
Michael Brooks, executive direc-
tor of Hillel and the founder of the
program, said his idea for the award
stemmed from a the ideas of a Jewish
prophet who stressed the importance
of doing everything as if it is one's
"I'm really quite delighted with
the whole program," Brooks said.
LSA junior Doug Daniels has
worked closely with Coppola doing
research for two years and is one of
his biggest fans.
"It's no coincidence that this is the
only student award and he's the one
who received it," said Daniels,achem-
Daniels added that Coppola's con-
nection with students is remarkable,
pointing out, "It's really difficult to
understand the obstacles a student
will face when you already know the
material, and for some reason he un-
derstands those obstacles."
LSA junior Niels Rosenquist, a
member of the SHOUT committee,
said Coppola was chosen through the
same process the group has used for
the past four years.
Ballots are distributed and col-
lected in early January. Different bal-
lots carry different weight - a ballot
that simply states a name does not
carry as much value as one with a
paragraph or essay explanation of the
"We're not claiming it to be a
perfect democratic process as far as
the numbers of ballots everyone re-
ceives," Rosenquist said, adding that
the committee takes many factors into
Brooks said approximately 500
ballots were turned in this year, and
the decision came from many hours
ofdeliberation. "The committee tries
to balance everything out. They don't
do it as a popularity contest - they
try to select someone someone who
not only had the support of large num-
bers of students, but who very clearly
had something to say."
Although all of the three previous
winners have been in the humanities
fields, Coppola is the first natural
science teacher to gain this distinc-
The majority of students whom
Coppola comes in contact with are
registered in his classes, and many
first-year students have had him for
both Chem 210 and 215 this aca-
Heather Landino, an LSA first-
year student who has Coppola for the
second consecutive term, said, "The
way that Prof. Coppola teaches makes
a class as challenging as organic chem-
istry more enjoyable and easier to
learn. He is energetic and relates to
his students well."
Although a student group gives
the award, Coppola's supporters ar*
not limited to undergraduates. He
works daily with teaching assistants
and other professors, the majority of
whor offered similar kudos.
Seyhan Ege, associate professor
of chemistry, said Coppola is espe-
cially interested in the ways students
succeed in learning and keeping them
"(Coppola) is a creative, exciting
and vital teacher, and I guess his stu-
dents noticed," she added.
