and Weber endowments, which the
internal auditor later questioned in his
"If they were intended by their do-
research and development - and if
they are in fact being used to support
other things - mass communication
theory, for example - that practice
ought to stop," Power said in his letter
obtained yesterday by The Michigan
Daily under the Freedom of Informa-

tion Act.
In a Jan. 29, 1991 response,
Goldenberg addressed Power's con-
cerns on the use of the endowments.
"Let me assure you that these funds
are being used to support education in
ways appropriate to their purpose and
enriching for the entire University com-
munity," Goldenberg said in her re-
But the University audit released in
June questioned many of the endow-
ment expenditures.
In July, Jonathan Friendly, director
ofthe Master's Program in Journalism,
filed a lawsuit against the University,
claiming his role in prompting the audit
cost him renewal of his three-year con-
On Oct. 22, 1992, Friendly sent a
letter to Neil Malamuth, then-chair of
the communication department.
In his letter, Friendly questioned
the use of the Weber endowment to
fund the maintenance of the communi-
cation department library.

'The University, not the department, will
determine whether the funds are reimbursed.'
- James J. Duderstadt
University president

Malamuth replied toFriendly's in-
quiry anddefended the useof the funds.
"I had discussed the payment for
the library with Associate Dean John
Cross some time ago. Based on our
examination of the most recent word-
ing in the description of the endow-
ment, it does not appear inappropriate
to use some of the funds for this pur-
pose. Otherwise, it is likely that the
library will be closed," Malamuth said
in his letter.
The internal audit questioned the
use of the Weber endowment funds to
support the library.
The Weber endowment was estab-
lished in 1975 to support internships to
prepare University students for a ca-
reer in journalism and communication.

The endowment also allows support
for programs other than internships
that further professional preparation of
students in journalism and communi-
The auditor found in his reportthat
the communication department used
the endowment to:
Fund travel and hosting expenses
thatdid not directly support the intern-
ship program;
Support expenses other than pay-
roll, travel and hosting that did not
directly support the internship program;
Fund salaries of supplemental
teaching staff, office support staff, in-
structional assistants, library staff and
other support staff.

on their degree of condoning the inci-
dent," Vauclain said.
Sig Eps also is not allowed to
induct a pledge class this fall, al-
though it will be permitted to hold
"limited" recruitment activities,
meaning any functions must be dry
and must be approved by the alumni
board president and Vauclain.
The series of punishments is in
response to a widely-publicized haz-
ing incident that landed one pledge in
the hospital Sept. 4 after he drank a
dangerous amount of vodka. Vauclain
said the pledge was told to drink the
vodka by a fraternity brother after he
had not performed his pledge duties
Some criticized the punishment as
too light.
"It's a slap on the wrist," said
Dave Garcia, chairman of the Michi-
gan Union Board of Representatives
and president of Pi Kappa Phi frater-
- nity. "I think the chapter has a much
bigger problem than just four mem-
"They've had two serious inci-
dents in two years, and only four
people expelled from the fraternity. I
think that's crazy ... and it's just not
enough," he added.
Garcia, who is also a former Inter-
fraternity Council (IFC) vice presi-
dent, was referring to the recent haz-
ing incident as well as an accident in
late Sept. 1992 when a pledge fell
from the roof of Sig Eps and had to be
hospitalized. The 1992 incident was
alcohol related, but not to hazing.
Garcia has developed a proposal
for a state statute that would
criminalize hazing with the advice of
Mary Lou Antieau, judicial adviser
for the Statement of Student Rights
and Responsibility -the University's
code of non-academic conduct.
In an interview last Friday, Uni-
versity President James J. Duderstadt
condemned hazing.
"Hazing is not tolerated on this
campus.... I think the Interfraternity
Council will step up to that."
"It's not an appropriate thing to
happen at a university," Duderstadt
added. "These students could be dam-
aged for the rest of their lives finan-
cially because of liability."
IFC President Kirk Wolfe said he
believes hazing is not limited to the

Greek system. "I think it's a campus
problem. and I think it's most visible
within in the Greek system and there
are some chapters that really need to
do some work," Wolfe said.
Vauclain said he is confident the
sanctions against Sig Eps will be ef-
fective, based on past experience with
other chapters.
Landes said he is not so sure.
"There's a cultural change that needs
to take place within the chapter," h*
"In changing a culture, it's hard to
determine what is effective and what
is not effective."
An investigation was conducted
by the fraternity's alumni and the
fraternity headquarters beginning
Sept. 5. The investigation involved
interviews of every undergraduate
memb'er and consultation wit
And "The process ... hasn'tended
yet," Wolfe said. "It will be some-
thing that goes before the Greek Ac-
tivities Review Panel .(GARP) ... and
sanctions might develop from there
as well."
Landes said there will be a hearing
by GARP in the "near future" to de-
termine whether further sanctions
should be leveled against the frater@
GARP is made up of representa-
tives of fraternities and sororities who
are elected and/or appointed by IFC
and the Panhellenic Association;
Landes added.
In the meantime, several people
will be making sure Sig Eps abides
by its sanctions. The chapter has
created an internal standards co
mittee to oversee the completion r
its requirements, with counsel from
local alumni.
In addition, Landes said he will be
"double-checking" weekly to see that
the brothers are fulfilling their new
duties and advise the chapter execu-
tive board on "ways to have ... posi-
tive events" and to "bring them back
to what a fraternity is supposed t
And in December, there will be a
formal review of all members and of
chapter operations.
Sandler is optimistic about the
chapter's future.
"I think the alumni board was very
fair and they did a very careful analy-
sis and I think we're going to be an
improved chapter," he said.

students said they drink responsibly,
about45 percent admit to binge drink-

"So far we haven't seen a positive
impact of these programs," said Marie
Hansen, assistant director of student
East Lansing police also say inci-
dents involving alcohol haven't
stopped. "Alcohol consumption is
probably the largest source of prob-
lems that we have in the city," said
Capt. Stephen Chubb.
In Marquette, Northern Michigan

University students are visited in their
residence halls and classrooms by
public safety officers who spell out
the dangers of drinking irresponsibly.
"Most of our alcohol-related prob-
lems deal with larcenies and vandal-
ism," said Sgt. Michael Lovelace.
Lovelace said he personally tours
the campus giving lectures on alcohol
awareness. He said alcohol-free event
are held and encouraged. "We try t
get across that there are other things
to do besides drinking," he said.
Lovelace said in 1993, the campus

pared to six in the previous years. The
violations include a minor in posses-
sion or open container in a restricted

AATU believes MSA has the
money to fund them, and has "shifted
it to other causes," Maurer said. When
the student fees were approved at
their present level, one of the assump-

tions MSA made was that part 0O
those funds would be used for AATU;

tinue to do so.
"I'm optimistic that MSA and the

together for students," Maurer said.
