Skowron said DPS charges 10 to
15 people per week for public intoxi-
cation, although this number varies
with the events of the week. "Football
Saturdays, we arrest easily 50 or 60
people in one day, about 100 for the
whole weekend."
Those charged with public intoxi-
cation could face a 10 day stay in jail
and a small fine. If students do make
it to their house or apartment, they are
generally home free. This is not true
for the students who live in the resi-
dence halls, however.
"If a resident is obviously drunk,
we confront them," said Nung Bui, a
Newberry resident adviser. "We write

up an incident report, which goes to
the resident director and goes through
a judicial hearing."
Thisjudicial process is outlined in
the Statement of Student Rights and
Responsibilities, known as the code.
The hearing consists of six student
jurors and a faculty chair. As there are
no set punishments for alcohol viola-
tions, sanctions vary for case to case.
"There is always a possible lease
termination on the first offense, but it
usually takes two or three violations,"
Bui said. Bui added that the same pro-
cedure is followed if students are caught
drinking in their rooms, but must pour
out the alcohol immediately.
Several students said that there is
basically no threat of punishment from
their RAs. "They don't see it, they

don't care," Bobick said. "They won't
go looking for it."
More severe than the threat of Uni-
versity or police punishment is the health
risk. According to the Department of
Public Health, three or four students are
taken to the emergency room every
weekend for alcohol poisoning.
"There's not much you can do for
alcohol poisoning because it's already
in the blood," said an official at Poi-
son Control. "You just flush the per-
son with fluids and wait for the blood
to metabolize."
Although statistics on the number
of deaths due to alcohol poisoning on
campus were not immediately avail-
able, Public Health workers said they
believe deaths due to alcohol abuse
are definitely on the rise.
Despite the risk of criminal record
and even death, underage drinking is
still on the rise. "Alcohol consump-
tion is becoming more and more a
problem," Skowron said. "There's a
lot of use and abuse."

assembly room on the 11th floor where
they will begin the first round of a
search for 12 jurors and eight alter-
nates. They'll be culled from a pool of
1,000 people who have been sum-
moned so far for The People versus
Orenthal James Simpson, one of the
most talked-about, highly publicized
cases in history.
Today's screening will be forhard-
ship, to weed out jurors who can't
serve because of personal or job-re-
lated commitments. The next step is
the voir dire, or the questioning of
jurors for suitability to serve. They'll
be asked if they can set aside what
they've heard and read about the case
and reach a verdict based solely on
the evidence presented in court.
The jurors also will fill out a
lengthy questionnaire, 40to 50 pages,
devised by trial judge Lance Ito. His
version is the result of separate ques-

tionnaires crafted by jury consultants
hired by both sides to uncover feelings
on issues crucial to the Simpson case,
such as family violence, racial bias,
interracial marriage, celebrity, wealth.
Neither side would give an indica-
tion of what it's looking for in jurors.
Once a jury is impaneled, pros-
ecutor Marcia Clark wants them se-
questered throughout the trial. The
defense has filed papers in opposi-
tion. But Clark says it's imperative,
arguing that it's cheaper to sequester
- $3,446 a day - than to retry the
case at $9,459 a day.
Although jury selection begins
today, it's not clear when the actual
trial will begin because Ito first has to

chair Frank Beaver first offered
Friendly the department position in
"This letter formally offers you
the position of Executive Editor of
the Masters of Arts Program in Jour-
nalism, Department of Communica-
tion, University of Michigan. The
appointment, which begins Sept. 1,
1988, is for three years with the pos-
sibility of renewal at the end of this
period," Beaver said in his letter.
In a letter dated Sept. 26, 1990,
Beaver offered Friendly a second three-
year contract, which ended June 30.
But the University broke that pat-
tern in April, offering Friendly a one-
year contract.
In a letter, Huesmann offered
Friendly an appointment for one year,
from July 1, 1994 to June 30, 1995.
The new contract also adds addi-
tional responsibilities for Friendly,
with only a standard pay increase.
Under his old contract, Friendly
conducted the Journalism Workshop,
taught a communication course in the
winter term and supervised summer
The new contract will require
Friendly to teach an additional com-
munication course, arrange intern-
ships, head two programs on the envi-
ronment - one for journalists and
one for high schoolteachers, and teach
an additional half course the follow-
ing year.
Documents obtained by the Daily
under the Freedom of Information Act
show that Friendly has been probing the
misuse of the endowment funds since
1992. Friendly claims in his suit that
this role cost him another three-year
In a March 5, 1992 letter to Neil
Malamuth, then-chair of the commu-
nication department, Friendly dis-
cussed his review of inappropriate
"Slightly more than half of the
money seems to have gone forpurposes
not identified as appropriate in the origi-
nal bequest and in our recent letter to
Dean Goldenberg reporting on the
fund," Friendly said in his letter.
In a Dec. 31, 1992 letter to Regent
Philip Power (D-Ann Arbor), Friendly
provided a detailed account of mis-
spent funds.
The Howard R. Marsh Center, one
ofthe misspent endowments, was to be
used to support faculty research related
to long-range factors that affect the
ability of news media to perform their
functions in a democratic society.
According to Friendly's letter, the
most frequent user of this account
was Malamuth.
In this 1992 letter to Power,
Friendly claims that Malamuth used
the following funds:
$686 "to do research in Los
Angeles" - where his parents live

media blitz,
The story about the misuse of
endowment funds in the commu-
nication department first appeared
in an article in The Detroit News.
In June, President James J.
Duderstadt asserted that Friendly's
position as an assistant city editor
at The Detroit News brought the
issue to the lead position in the
But Friendly said a University
press release prompted the story,
and he was not involved with de-
ciding the story's placement or its
"I thought what he said was
totally unfounded and an attack on
the ethics of the paper and on my
ethics. I think he did it with no
factual basis," Friendly said yes-
Julie Peterson, director of the
University's News and Informa-
tion Services, yesterday confirmed
that her office sent a press release
to The Detroit News the day be-
fore the story appeared in the pa-
per. But she added the story had
additional information that had not
been released by her office.

$87 for "miscellaneous busi-
ness luncheons with U of M faculty."
One of the endowment abuses was
to partially fund Friendly's own salary.
In an Oct. 1, 1993 letter to
Huesmann, Friendly questioned the
use of the Weber endowment to sup-
port Friendly's salary. 4
"If more than half of the Weber:
income - $25,000 of $45,000 - is
allocated to my salary and only 10
percent of my time is devoted to in-
ternships, we can no longer say that.

his letter.
