RHODES
Continued from page 1
Many of the University's candi-
dates called the process a positive ex-
perience. LSA senior Karen Jones said
the interview was "a good chance to
evaluate my future goals."
"Going to the state competition
was an interesting chance to meet
some other top students," Jones
added.
The candidates spoke before apanel
of about six interviewers, and each
lasted about 30 minutes. They were

asked about their fields of study and
futures. Results were announced at the
end of all the interviews.
"It was long and draining," said
LSA senior Rajiv Shah, who inter-
viewed in Lansing. He said several of
the Michigan candidates were inter-
viewed twice.
Despite the outcome, Shah said the
interview was "tough, challenging and
fun, almost.... I learned a lot from (the
whole process)," he added.
Each state selected two or three
candidates to advance to the district
competition. Each of the eight districts

-comprised of six or seven states -
selects four Rhodes Scholars. Candi-
dates must be either seniors or gradu-
ates younger than 24.
The other University candidates
were: LSA seniors Brain Kalev Free-
man and MarahGubar; and LSA gradu-
ates Derek Douglas, Katherine Metres
and Jonathan Phillips.
Nancy Pietras, a financial-aid of-
ficer forthe LSA Honors Program who
handled much of the committee's pa-
perwork, said she was surprised that
"at least a couple did not advance" to
the district competition.
"(The University students) felt they
were in really good company and they
were," she said.
Last year, University student Leah
Niederstadt won the scholarship. She
was the first University student to
receive the award in 10 years.

was completed in four and ahalfhours.
"These two programs should not
have been running at the same time,"
Patterson said.
By yesterday afternoon, students
could return to using the touch-tone
system.
"It's unfortunate that it happened
and it is a matter of timing. We can
clearly work it out," Patterson said.
LeRoy said he tried calling several
times and then called the help line. He
said they told him to register at CRISP
or to keep trying.
"I finally got through 45 minutes
later at 2:30," LeRoy said. "It was kind
of frustrating having to try over and
over. Finally it worked. Once I got
through it was fine."
Students who registered at CRISP
also faced a slowdown, Patterson said.
At its height, 5,000 calls aday have
been placed to touch-tone CRISP with
very few problems, Patterson said.
She said 70 percent of the graduate
students used touch-tone CRISP and
50 percent of undergraduates used it.
"It's been wonderful," Patterson
said. "The very positive thing about
it is students can do it from any-
where."
Regular CRISP will be phased out
in April, but Patterson said a small
CRISP office will remain.

Post office to change e
atomic bomb stamp

WASHINGTON (AP) -The post
office, under heavy White House and
diplomatic pressure, is scrapping plans
for a stamp recalling the atomic bomb-
ing of Japan.
"We are changing the design of
the stamp because of the importance
of U.S.-Japan relations at this critical
time in U.S. foreign policy, and be-
cause President Clinton conveyed his
views that it was appropriate to do
so," Postmaster General Marvin
Runyon said yesterday.
The stamp - which was to depict
a mushroom cloud following a bomb

blast - will be replaced by a design
showing President Truman preparing
to announce the end of the war.
Controversy swirled around the
stamp almost from the moment lao
month when its design was disclosed,
along with many other stamps planned
for 1995. Japanese officials were out-
raged over the design and filed pro-
tests.
The Postal Service initially de-
fended the stamp as commemorating
a crucial event in the war that needed
to be part of the series of World War
II stamps spread over several years

spokeswoman Lisa Baker.
While the recent lighting changes
are not a direct result of the MSA
Walk-Through, the University admin-
istration anticipates a future alliance
with both the city and students.
"We're doing a lot on campus and
we want to work with the community
now. I think the level of participation
is indicative of peoples' concern,"
Baker said.
City representatives are also eager
to improve safety.

dence halls ban the purchase of Cali-
fornia table grapes in the dining halls,
to be signed by at least one of the
executive board members.
"We can't force anybody to do
anything," said RHA Treasurer Bryant
Wu.
However, Housing Division
spokesman Alan Levy said residence
halls will support the ban.
"In the past when RHA has pre-
sented us with a resolution ... we
have stopped the purchase of Califor-
nia grapes," he said. "We will act on
the resolution of RHA on behalf of
students in residence halls."
Levy referred to previous Univer-
sity support of the boycott, most re-
cently when RHA passed a similar
resolution in 1988 and dining ser-
vices supported the boycott, which
was later rescinded.
The issue is important to Latino/a
student groups in particular - like
attending groups Alianza, La Doz
Mexicana, the Society for Hispanic
Engineers, and the Latino fraternity
Sigma Lambda Beta - because of
the number of Mexican immigrants
who are exposed to grape farming
practices in California, said Wayne
Alejandro Wolbert, co-chair of
Alianza.
LSA junior Cirlio Martinez said
the victory was a step in the right
direction. "It's going to give (grape

"I think (the University and the
city) should jointly pool our resources,
financially and intellectually, to fix
these problems," Lumm said.
MSA is mailing the results to the
city and to the University today, hop-
ing to continue the movement for in-
creased campus safety.
"The next step is coordinating
meeting with city representatives t
get everyone back together," said
MSA Kinesiology Rep. Jeff Brown,
chairman of the Campus Safety Task
Force. "What we're hoping to get at is
a cooperation. We need to get every-
one to work together on this one."

he said.
Other groups in attendance were
the Queer Unity Project, the Student
Housing Association and the Gay Lib-
eration Front.
Representatives from Alianza sai
they felt they were not well receive
by RHA in the past. The grape boy-
cott issue has been tabled since Sep-
tember of this year.
RHA representative Heidi Naasko
said the tabling has been a result of
her calling quorum whenever the is-
sue came up at meetings. She said she
did this because the lack of represen-
tative attendance and interest in th
issue.
"If people are at our meetings who
are well informed, this grape ban
would've been passed long, long ago,"
the LSA senior said.
"It's an apathetic organization, but
it's salvageable if people would just
come there and see what goes on," she
added.
RHA President Stacia Fejedelem
disagreed. "I have faith in our repre@
sentatives. ... I think they were just
basically frustrated with the amount
of time it was taking," she said.
"I thought they were received well,
actually," saidWu, an Inteflex sopho-
more.
The RHA also voted to allocate
$800 in funds to WOLV, the Univer-
sity student-run TV station.
