TRAVEL
Continued from page 1
year, for which no date has been set,
Dale's attorneys are expected to portray
both as "heavies" who ultimately caused
his legal troubles.
Robert S. Bennett, Thomason's
Washington lawyer, said yesterday,
"Mr. Thomason is not the target of
any investigation. He did absolutely
nothing improper and had no interest
in getting the travel business."
Cornelius could not be reached for
comment.
WhiteHousepress secretary Dee Dee
Myers declined comment on the indict-
ment but pointed out that the administra-
tion had revamped the travel office last
year and cooperated with investigators.
In statements to reporters,

Tabackman has suggestedhisclientwas
made a scapegoat because presidential
aides were embarrassed by the furor that
arose over the firing of Dale and others.
He has vowed to question everyone
involved in the dismissals, including
Thomason, Cornelius and possibly first
lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Congressional Republicans have
said they may hold hearings on the
matter next spring.
Dale, who faces a maximum pos-
sible punishment of 20 years in prison
if convicted of the two-count indict-
ment, began converting travel funds to
his own use in February 1988 the grand
jury charged. Prosecutors believe Dale
used mediamoney to help build ahouse,
but his friends insist he kept a cash fund
only to take care of unexpected re-
quests of the White House press corps.

GREENSPAN

of economic conditions in the nation's
12 Federal Reserve districts.
The report issued yesterday said "re-
tail salesinmostdistrictshaveiimproved,
with nearly all districts reporting strong
sales early in the holiday season. Manu-
facturing activity is increasing further in
most districts, especially in durable
goods industries, and the service sector
is continuing to show strength."
Prices are rising for paper products,
plastics, chemicals, steel and construc-
tion materials, the report noted, and
there is some tightening in labor mar-
kets. As Greenspan testified, however,
manufacturers have not yet been able to
pass along these higher costs in the form
of higher retail prices.

CODE
Continued from page 1
have two or more hearings in a year."
Last winter, Student Affairs had
three unsuccessful attempts at hear-
ing changes to the code. The first
hearing was canceled because of a
January ice storm.
The two other scheduled hearings
could not proceed because they failed
to reach a quorum of jurors.
"I think traditionally they have
problems with the amendment hear-
ings because students really don't
care," Stern said.
At the last scheduled hearing, 25
student jurors attended the hearing -
one short of quorum.
"If you're one out of 25, it's easy
to think someone else will be there.
They won't miss me," Antieau said.
"We're going to talk about the fact
that 25 people came last time.... The
personal choice of one became very,
very important."
To encourage student jurors to at-
tend the amendment hearing this year,
Antieau has altered the training session.
The session will provide time to discuss
and plan for the amendment hearing.
"We're trying everything to en-
courage people. We've never allo-
cated hours to it," Antieau said.

I love the snow because I love to ski."
Yesterday's weather was just what
Engineering first-year student Darius
Minai-Azary was hoping for.
"I came to Michigan for snow,"
he said. "I wish that the snow and
cold had come earlier, and I am defi-
nitely happy to see it here now."
Towing companies and ski resorts
were also delighted - more snow
means more business.
"We're excited. Telephones are
ringing off the hook. Every skier in
southeast Michigan is home waxing
their skis," said Greg Yost, promo-
tions director of Mt. Brighton ski
resort at Brighton, about 25 miles
from Ann Arbor.
By noon, hundreds of people had
flocked to the slopes and the parking
lot was nearly full, he said.
AAA Michigan was also busy.
The Dearborn-based auto club re-
ported a 25-percent increase in calls
for help Wednesday over the same
time last week. By noon, AAA had
taken almost 1,600 calls, most from
people whose cars wouldn't start or
were stuck, said spokeswoman Nancy
Cain.
"They're stuck all over," added
Sharon Byers of Byers Wrecker Ser-
vice of Rochester. "Their own drive-
ways, ditches, freeways, someone
else's driveway."
For some, including avid snow-
ball-fighters and creative worship-
pers of the cold, the new snow opened
a playground with limitless possibili-
ties.
More than 200 students joined in
the annual South Quad vs. West Quad
snowball standoff in the newly fallen
snow Tuesday night. With snow hur-
tling across the Madison Street neu-
tral zone, students relieved end-of-
term stress and enjoyed their fresh,
white ammunition.
More pacifist students decided to
forego the multiple melees around
campus to seek more constructive
pursuits. L
"Tuesday afternoon, when the

snow started, I went out and a built a
snowman on Palmer Field," sai
Engineering first-year student JerreW
Sherenco. "I was the first person out
there."
In Bay City, the snow was cred-
ited with helping police track down
two suspects. A 34-year-old man and
his 21-year-old companion faced lar-
zeny charges after they were spotted
carrying Christmas wreaths allegedly
stolen from Keit's Greenhouse, said
Bay City police officer Barr*
Kenyon,
Officers nabbed the pair by track-
ing footprints in the snow, he said.
The sight of the first snowstorm
also drew a few mixed comments
from those who wandered outside.
"Initially, I like the snow, but I
don't like it when it gets slushy and
gross," said LSA first-year student
Beth Elrod. "That wet mess is not fu
to walk through. This kind of weathei
is good for a month or two, but around
spring break I will be getting sick of
it."
Jac Matthews, a former Univer-
sity student, said the snow serves a
purpose, but once that purpose is
over, he hates it.
"I like the snow until Christmas,
after that, the snow is bad," he said
"The only reason I really like th9
snow now is for Christmas. Right
after that, I start longing for the warm
weather again."
Unfortunately for those who
didn't like yesterday's conditions,
weather reports indicate that the snow
is here to stay, at least for a while.
Today's forecast calls for a break in
the precipitation including partly
sunny skies and high temperatures i
the lower 30s. Tonight should b1
partly cloudy before midnight when
mixed snow, sleet and freezing rain
should top what is already on the
ground.
Temperatures are expected to re-
main below 30 degrees for most of
the weekend and there is a good
chance of snow both Friday and Sat-
urday.

"It's important for people to get
knowledge as to what will work for
them," McCormick said.
Upjohn is the producer of Depo-
Provera, a contraceptive injection for
women that was introduced in the
United States last year. The contra-
ceptive is injected once every three
months and has been proven 99 per-
cent effective since its 1969 release in
New Zealand.
McCormick will be joined in her
presentation by Dr. Elizabeth
Kennard, an assistant professor in the
Department of Obstetrics and Gyne-
cology at Ohio State University.

Since her days of stardom on the
"Brady Bunch," McCormick has ap-
peared in television shows, feature
films, and most recently as Rizzo in
the Broadway production of
"Grease."
"Birth Control Matters" visits about
12 universities and colleges annuall
and will also visit Western Michiga
University and Eastern Michigan Uni-
versity while in the state.
Upjohn also publishes a series of
informational women's health book-
lets about contraceptives, bacterial
vaginosis, the menstrual cycle, and
labor and. delivery. The booklets are
