Regent RebeccaMcGowan (D-Ann
Arbor) said she's thrilled with the rapid
growth of endowments.
"The endowment goes forever so
there's more money that the endow-
ment will kick out. Everybody stands
to benefit, even generations who
haven't thought of going to the Univer-
sity of Michigan," she said.

of Orenthal Enterprises, Simpson's
Los Angeles business. Clark said Sara
Caplan, one of Simpson's lawyers,
who was at the office, objected that
the warrant did not cover the papers
and took them from detectives.
On Aug. 31, Caplan was subpoe-
naed to produce the papers but she told
police she had left them at the office.
Two days later, police executed a
second search warrant at the office.

They were told by Randa, who had
opened the desk for them Aug. 12,
that she had shredded the papers. Clark
said she had subpoenaed Randa to
testify Wednesday as to why she
shredded the documents and who told
her to do so. It is unclear whether
Clark believes any misconduct may
have occurred. Robert L. Shapiro,
one of Simpson's lead attorneys, said
later that the material was pamphlets
and brochures about domestic vio-
lence that Simpson received years
ago aspartof his court-ordered therapy

from a 1989 incident in which he
pleaded no contest to spousal battery.
Before ruling on the motion to
dismiss the case, Ito heard more than
two hours of arguments from lawyers
on both sides.
Simpson, who was in court yester-
day and spent much of the hearing
taking notes or chatting with attorney
Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., has pleaded
not guilty to the murders of Goldman
and Nicole Brown Simpson. If con-
victed, he could face life in prison
without possibility of parole.

Shapiro argued that the prosecu-
tion had failed to present a coherent
theory of the murders during the pre-
liminary hearing, that certain aspects
of the prosecution case do not square
with each other and that sloppy inves-
tigative work has made it impossible
for Simpson to defend himself.
"Because the Los Angeles Police
Department detectives on the scene'
did not follow departmental-approved
policy and did not notify the coroner for
10 hours after the bodies had been seized
... we are forever excluded from know-
ing what the timeofdeath was," Shapiro
said. "We have been left in a position
where the people have deprived us of
the absolute right to put on any real
defense to this case."
Elaborating on arguments first
aired during the preliminary hearing,

Shapiro and Simpson lawyer Geralb
F. Uelmen hammered yesterday on a
number of instances in which they
maintain that police and other inves-
tigators slipped up. Uelmen, for in-
stance, accused one of the LAPD de-
tectives of lying five times in prepar-
ing an affidavit for a warrant to search
Simpson's home.
Clark conceded that there were
mistakes in the affidavit - at sev*
eral points, Detective Philip L.
Vannatter refers to red spots as "hu-
man blood" when that determina-
tion was not made until after the
warrant was obtained - but she
said the errors were harmless.
Even if the errors were corrected,
she said, it would not have affected a
judge's willingness to issue the war-

Wolpe said violent youngsters do
need to be dealt with, but he said a
youth prison might not be the answer.
He said he isn't sure what is the best
Engler said another possible solu-
tion would be to send troubled juve-
niles to a military-style charter school.

Those schools would provide educa-
tion and job skills for children getting
lost in traditional schools, he added.
Engler said amilitary charter school
would get per-pupil funding like public
schools. And, he said other costs like
janitorial and cooking staffs could be
eliminated by giving students "K.P

under U.S. control."
The groups hoped that many stu-
dents would"come together to protest
U.S. intervention now," one of the
speakers shouted.
Curtin, along with two other stu-
dents, spoke about why they believed
the United States should notsend troops
to Haiti. The students said the United
States is lying when it says the purpose
of the occupation is to restore democ-
racy to the Haitian people.
The groups believe instead that the
United States intends to "reassert the
United States' stranglehold on the Hai-
tian economy and to maintain eco-
nomic domination," Curtin said.
Another protester, RC junior Jodi
Masley, contended the invasion would
hurt democracy in Haiti.
"The invasion is also just an at-
tempt to crush the democratic aspira-
tions of the Haitian people and the
popular movement for democratic re-
form that now exists in Haiti," Masley
She asserted the occupation was
motivated by U.S. economic interests.
"Clinton wants to crush this demo-
cratic movement in Haiti because he
fears that it will otherwise ruin what
has been set up there by U.S. capitalism
for years," Masley said.

Group members said they believe
that Haitians should be allowed to fight
for democracy without the presence A
U.S. military. They said the Haitia
government under exiled President
Jean-Bertrand Aristide will only be a
"tool and puppet of U.S. corporate in-
Many of the students listening to
the protest also believed, for various
reasons, that the U.S. troops should not
be in Haiti.
LSA first-year student Benjami
Kepple said, "The United States shouw
absolutely not be in Haiti. They have
minimal interest in Haiti which is in-
sufficient to warrant intervention."
LSA sophomore Margaret Schuch
agreed. "I think that they should get the
hell out of there, because it is not our
country, "she said.
However, others disagreed with the
protesters. LSA senior Isaac Campos
said, "I think that what these people
saying is ridiculous. They think thatth
peasants and workers should rise up,
but this is unrealistic, given that the
illiteracy rate is high and they have no
resources to run a government."
During the protest, the speakers
cited instances when the United States
intervened to restore democracy in other
countries. They asserted that the mili-
tary intervention in Panama and Ira
for example, only led to further coi
plications. They said they believe that
the same thing will happen in Haiti.

Regent Philip Power (D-Ann Ar-
bor) denied that partisan motives were
behind the vote and said the change was
a return to the policy that was in place
prior to the state amendment in July.
"The outcome that is desired and I
believe the outcome that is achieved is
to make clear the ethical and moral
standard ... is maintained today just as
it was before the amendment made by

the legislature," he said.
RegentRebeccaMcGowan (D-Ann
Arbor) agreed. "For our service to the
University we should derive no finan-
cial benefit."
The original conflict-of-inter4
policy stemmed from the state law as
