*Campus
TV station
debut is a
.'Big Bang'
By MAGGIE WEYHING
Daily Staff Reporter
The University has many newspa-
pers, a yearbook and a radio station.
Now, it has its own televison sta-
tion.
This fall marks the first year of
WOLV, the new student-run television
*station, located on the ninth floor of
South Quad and broadcasting to dorms
campuswide on cable Channel 60.
WOLV kickoffed its inaugural
broadcast last night at 8, airing "Big
Bang: TheNewMichiganExperience,"
a program that Danny Schwaab, LSA
.junior and president of WOLV, and
other club members worked on during
most of last year. Schwaab described
*the show as an "entertaining and comi-
cal look at the University."
Schwaab said he transferred to the
University from Franklin Marsh Col-
lege in Pennsylvania that had a stu-
dent television station and was
shocked that there was not already a
program here.
"I came here expecting a similar,
and possibly even more of an elabo-
rate situation, I was very surprised
when I did not find one," he said.
To get the station started, Schwaab
met with Randall Root, a Housing

WOLV's adviser. Schwaab said, "We

the same time, however I was looking
for administrative support while he
was looking for student support."
Schwaab stressed that the only
prerequisite for becoming a mem-
ber of WOLV is to be a student at the
University. He stressed that the sta-
tion will be completely student-run.

the air are going to be students'
ideas," he said.
Schwaab said that students will be
working the cameras, writing and com-
ing up with the ideas for shows, as well
as acting in them. He encourages those
who are interested in participating in
any particular area of production to join
as soon as possible before more stu-
dents join. "I promise that anyone who
wants to join now, will be able to fulfill
their goals easily," he said.
Schwaab also said WOLV is look-
ing for diversity among its members.
He said, "We are not solely looking

for communications majors to join,
we want all kinds of students as well.
We really encourage freshmen to join
- they usually come to the Univer-
sity bright-eyed and often see things
that students who have been here for
a while do not."
The content of the programs that
will be airing on WOLV throughout
the year will be widespread. Schwaab
said, "We will have all sorts of shows
- game shows, newscasts, sports
events and sports highlights. How-
ever, we're always looking for new
ideas."

Law review advances to

Sorority rush ends
tomorrow; fraternities
started passing out
bids yesterday
By AMY KLEIN
For the Daily
Three weeks into fall semester,
sorority and fraternity rush are com-
ing to an end. For sororities, the last
two weeks of parties and mixers cul-
minate Sunday with "bid day." Fra-
ternities have been distributing their
bids since yesterday.
Major changes in sorority rush
policy and a recent fraternity hazing
incident have failed to discourage
rushees. The Office of Greek Life
reports that rush numbers are higher
than ever, but is waiting until rush is
over to release the numbers.
Changes in the formal sorority rush
originated in the National Panhellenic
Conference this past year in response
to intense competition between houses
on other campuses. As a result, the
amount of money sororities spend on
rush has been reduced, singing out-
side on the lawns has been eliminated
and the rush process is more casual.
Mary Beth Seiler, a Panhel ad-
viser, believes that the University al-
ready met many of the new require-
ments before this fall.
"The National Panhellenic Con-
ference was looking at campuses
where women were buying matching
formal dresses for Final Desserts. We
know that is not what the houses are
really about. They are about the
people, not who sings the loudest or
dresses the fanciest," Seiler said.
Rushees appreciate the chance to
look beyond the appearance of a
house. "Rush started off as very fake.
It was all, 'Hi, what's your name,
where are you from?' Then as it went
on, I think the whole process, the
parties, the people, have all gotten
more natural. You're able to get a real
idea of the houses separate from just
reputations," said Erica Lambert, a
first-year LSA rushee.
Also, without sacrificing any of the
four sets, the traditional three-weekrush
was exchanged for a more intense two-
week period. This change, however,
has received mixed reactions.
"It's difficult this year. The rush
period is shorter this year and it's
inhibiting everyone involved from
keeping up with classes and home-
work. On one hand, it's good because
rushees are placed quickly, yet at the
same time we're all exhausted from
late weeknight parties and meetings,"
said sorority member Jessica Mass,
an LSA sophomore.
Panhel also works to make rush
more open by eliminating the previ-
ous $25 participation fee, releasing
interested students from any initial

commitment.
Panhel's goal remains placing as
many students as possible into sorori-
ties. Seventeen out of the 26 Univer-
sity sororities participate in formal
rush, and this year quotas have been
set on the number of students each
house invites back.
Seiler hopes this practice will force
the houses to make commitments and
prevent the rushees from feeling
strung along. "It's a mutual selection
process. Although the chances are
better than ever this year of placing
the women, attitudes do enter the pic-
ture and the rushees are cutting houses,
too," Seiler said.
In comparison, fraternity rush is
less structured, as the individual
houses bear the majority of rush re-
sponsibility. "If the house is doing a
good job rushing then it's going to
survive. If they're lazy, sit back, and
do nothing, then they'll go under.It's
happened before," said Terry Landes,
a fraternity coordinator.
Although one fraternity house
faced hazing charges last week,
Landes believes fall rush has been
relatively unaffected.
"We'd be crazy to think this inci-
dent didn't shy some people away,
but I think-people have realized that
not all fraternities do things like this.
I've gotten very positive feedback
about rush, and the numbers of stu-
dents rushing are up," Landes said.
Last week on the Diag, the two-
day Fraternity Forum provided stu-
dents with the opportunity to talk with
fraternities casually on neutral ground.
The remaining structured event was a
mass meeting outside the Michigan
Union Ballroom.
The Inter-Fraternity Council sim-
ply requires that "dry" rush be ob-
served during the following days of
parties. Other than a few rules, the
fraternities are on their own. "Women
and men are very different," Landes
said. "Men are competitive by nature,
whereas with women, the role of rush
is to keep everyone even."
While fraternity rush is more re-
laxed, some believe this doesn't give
rushees the chance to visitevery house.
"Rush is great, but the only shortcom-
ing as a rushee is that you don't get to
find out about many fraternities. Repu-
tation and word of mouth play a big
roles. We get targeted by people on
the Hill, which means we don't get to
meet a lot of great guys from Southor
West Quad simply because they
haven't heard of us," said fraternity
member and LSA sophomore Adam
Bernstein.
Fraternity rush is also a faster pro-
cess than sorority rush. While soror-
ity rushees have a Saturday round of
parties and receive their bids on Sun-
day, the fraternities already started
distributing bids yesterday.

Starting in February, there will be
a new student publication on campus.
But you won't be able to pick it up
next to the Daily or the Review on the
newsstand.
You will be able to tap in online,
though, as The Michigan Telecom-
munications and Technology Law
Review is America's first fully online
law review, and will be published on
Lexis/Nexis. -
"The chief bonus of that group
will be that each article will have an
interactive aspect," said Erin
Rodriguez, managing editor of the
publication. Resources including
electronic mail and bulletin boards
will be employed - and students
are using such resources more and
more often.
The Law Review is holding the
first in a series of symposiums to call
for papers to be published in this
unique forum today, beginning at 9
a.m. in Hale Auditorium in the Busi-
ness School.
"Competition and the Information
Superhighway" is being sponsored
by the Law, Business and Public
Policy graduate divisions. The publi-
cation itself is the product of a group

of Law students who began work last
spring. The inaugural issue will come
out in February, and will include pa-
pers from today's symposium.
The morning session of the pro-
gram will deal with regulatory and
legislative issues pertaining to elec-
tronic information access and the ef-
fect that the recent surge in telecom-
munications will have on regional
Bell operating companies.
Focusing on marketing aspects,
the afternoon sessions will include
discussion of mergers and acquisi-
tions such as those at AT&T. Tele-
communication service companies
like AT&T will be represented at the
conference. "Basically, what the mar-
ket is doing right now and what it will
be doing in the future," Rodriguez
said.
Other issues that will be posted in
the first issue will include global as-
pect reports from Washington, D.C.,
and papers from partners in many law
firms.
"The great thing about telecom-
munications itself is that it encom-
passes so many issues in the business
world," Rodriguez said, citing the
importance of a publication via tele-
communications about telecommu-
nications.

*for their ousting of Aristide.
Witnesses said that yesterday's
grenades were thrown by known
members of a civilian terrorist wing
of the Haitian army, at least one of
whom was later tracked by a U.S.
military police dog team that led him
away in handcuffs.
The final death toll from the sec-
ond attack on peaceful demonstra-
tors in two days was incomplete by
dusk yesterday, but eyewitnesses,
hospitals, the Haitian Red Cross and

U.S. officials agreed that the total of
people killed or wounded was more
than 40.
A passing U.S. Army patrol
stumbled onto the incident and opened
fire just moments after the explo-
sions. It was unclear whether the
American forces hit any of the dem-
onstrators or any of the attackers, but
at least one of attackers was reported
among the dead.
U.S. Army Col. John Ryneska,
who also happened by the scene soon
after the attack occurred, said none of
the American forces was injured, and
he confirmed that at least one Haitian
had been detained after the attack.

.SANCTIONS
Continued from page 12
that, even in the case of South Africa,
the Council had not lifted sanctions
until that country had complied with
*all U.N. anti-apartheid resolutions.
This prompted U.S. Ambassador
Madeleine K. Albright to insist, "Let
me be clear. My government be-

lieves that voting today is the right
choice. By voting today, we promote
the early departure of the coup lead-
ers, the early return of President
Aristide, and thus the early restora-
tion of democracy to Haiti."
The simply-worded, relatively
short resolution would disband an
array of strictures imposed on Haiti
to punish its military rulers for re-
fusing to step down in favor of

Aristide.
The sanctions, which have
crippled Haiti's economy, include a
ban on all trade (this also affects oil
shipments) and a halt in all financial
transactions.
By a 13-0 vote, with the two ab-
stentions, the Council decided the
sanctions would end a minute after
midnight EDT "on the day after the
return" of Aristide.

Correction
According to internal audit of the communication department endowments, the use of the Weber account to support
travel and hosting expenses that do not directly support the internship program are not prohibited by the endowment.
However, clear guidelines for such support have not been established. This was incorrectly reported in the Sept. 12
issue of the Daily.
