D'ARMS
Continued from page 1.
D' Arms said his years spent as dean
werea "real education in mid-life." He
said the position exposed him to intel-.
lectual research in many different fields
and provided him with close student
and faculty contacts.
"It's one of the greatest honors you
can have to serve as graduate dean. I
think itis the most wonderful adminis-
trative position that you can have at a
large University," D'Arms said.
In July, PresidentClinton appointed
D'Arms to the National Council on the
Humantities - a 26-member board
that establishes policies for funding al-
location. The council meets four times
a year for two-day periods.
D'Arms received bachelor's de-
grees in 1956 from Princeton and Ox-
ford in 1959, and a doctorate from
Harvard in 1965
He has served as trustee of the
American Academy of Rome and is
currently writing a book on the rituals
of eating and drinking in Roman soci-
ety. He serves on the boards of the
National Humanities Center and the
North American Committee for the
Mellon Fellowships in the Humanities.

laws by accepting the hospitality of
such companies as Tyson Foods of
Arkansas, QuakerOats of Missouri and
Sun Diamond of California.
Meanwhile, another Clinton Cabi-
net official whose actions are under
scrutiny, HUD Secretary Henry
Cisneros, has told White House offi-
cials that he is willing to step down,
too, if the Justice Department deter-
mines that he misled the FBI prior to
his appointment about payments in
excess of $200,000 to a former girl-
friend. The woman has alleged that
Cisneros agreed to pay the money to
help alleviate damage to her career as
a result of a romantic relationship
between them some years ago.
Espy, 40, a former Mississippi
congressman, announced his resigna-
tion at a hastily scheduled news con-
ference and insisted he had not been
asked to step down by the president or
any other White House official.
"This was my choice," he said.
Nevertheless, his resignation came
as the White House counsel's office
was completing work on an internal
review of the Espy matter that appar-

ently uncovered reasons to challenge
the Agriculture secretary's conten-
tion that he had done nothing wrong.
Among other things, the White House
investigation uncovered a previously
unknown $1,200 "scholarship" that
Espy's girlfriend received from Tyson
Foods.
Sources said White House Chief
of Staff Leon Panetta and White House
Counsel Abner Mikva briefed Espy
last Friday on the preliminary results
of their review and gave him until
Monday to decide how to respond.
They were said to have left little doubt
that they wanted him to quit.
"We didn't want this to linger,"
said a senior official, adding that White
House officials were determined in
this case to avoid the criticism they
had received for failing to obtain the
prompt resignation of Deputy Trea-
sury Secretary Roger Altman after he
was accused of lying to a congres-
sional committee.
In a statement accepting Espy's
resignation, the president said he was
troubled by the appearance of con-
flict of interest created by Espy's ac-
ceptance of favors from industry
sources, and he concluded that the
secretary's resignation "is appropri-
ate."
Yet because Espy's resignation
does not take effect for three months,
Clinton will not be forced to face the
politically sensitive task of selecting
a successor until after the November
election. Among the contenders to
succeed him is Ruth Harkin, wife of
Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, and Rob-
ert Rominger, former California agri-
culture secretary.
While Espy's resignation spares
Clinton the political damage of hav-
ing a sitting Cabinet member under a
cloud, it nonetheless does nothing to
limit Espy's own legal liability. The
investigation of Espy will continue
under independent counsel Donald
C. Smaltz.

Now U.S. has left Rwanda;
what are the afters3hocks?

ING IT! AT
RESTARA T SPORTS A N

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON -When the last
478 U.S. troops departed central Af-
rica last Friday at the end of a humani-
tarian mission to aid Rwandan refu-
gees, they closed the books on six
months of anguished efforts by the
Clinton administration to cope with
the biggest mass murder since the
Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia in
1975.
White House national security ad-
viser Anthony Lake, the
administration's point man on Rwanda,
and other officials emerged from the
experience chagrined by their inability
to halt the carnage, which is estimated
to have claimed I million lives.
But the only way they could have
stopped the slaughter, senior officials
say, would have been to send U.S.
troops into the midst of an African
civil war-- a step the administration
never seriously considered in the wake
of America's experience in Somalia.
However appalling the death toll, se-
nior officials said, Rwanda never met
any of the tests of U.S. interests that
would require military intervention.
In Haiti, by contrast, Washington has
just sent 20,000 troops with the goal
of "restoring democracy." But Haiti
is much closer to U.S. shores than
Rwanda, and Haitian refugees have
flooded into Florida when they could.
"The fact is that in terms of classic
American national interests, we have
less in Rwanda than in Bosnia, Haiti
or Korea," a senior White House offi-
cial said. "That is simply a fact. That
does not mean we should not care
about Rwanda, or put a lot of work
into it ... but to (halt) a widespread
conflict involving tens of thousands,
you would have had to send in whole
(Army) divisions, and if we had done
that people would now be asking,
'What were you thinking?"'
Not everybody sees it that way. The
Clinton administration has drawn furi-
ous criticism from some members of
Congress, relief agencies working in
Africa and independent analysts for
staying on the sidelines "while a mil-
lion people were hacked to death," as S.
Frederick Starr, president of the Aspen
Institute think tank, wrote after visiting
Rwanda on a fact-finding mission for
President Clinton in August.
But administration officials said

in interviews that they did everything
possible to try to save lives in a situ-
ation where diplomacy was irrelevant,
threats were ignored and appeals went
unheeded. They said they are proud
of the military airlift, engineering feats
and dispatch of a total of 2,350 troops
who helped deliver water, food and
sanitation to hundreds of thousands
of refugees in Zaire.
Officials acknowledged that they
were slow to grasp the scope of the
catastrophe. They admitted that differ-
ences between the United States and
other U.N. members delayed deploy-
ment of a U.N. peacekeeping mission.
And they said that they spent countless

hours wrangling over peripheral issues.
Senior officials recognized withiI
a few weeks that the killings in
Rwanda constituted genocide, which
is prohibited by international law.
Nearly all victims were members of
the minority Tutsi tribe, slain by ma-
jority Hutus.
But U.S. officials refrained from
using the word "genocide" publicly
until Secretary of State Warren Chris-
topher did so in June. Officials wanted
to ensure that they applied the sam*
language to Rwanda as they applied
to Bosnia, so the same type of war
crimes investigation could be used
for both.

RANKING

University," Steeh said. "I wouldn't
put any faith in this kind ofjunk data."
Neither would a few students who
learned of the book and the survey
results.
"It sounds as if the survey is not
scientific by any means," said Engi-
neering senior Anthony Carriveau. "In
my program, Nuclear Engineering,
Michigan is second to MIT. I don't
know who the 150 people were who
answered the survey, but without more
information about the actual survey,
the 'facts' gathered don't mean much."
The two top-20 lists that the Uni-
versity did make are in the categories
"Students pack the stadiums," in which
it ranked 6th, and "TAs teach too many
upper level courses," in which it ranked
14th. Samples of other categories the
book ranks include "Future Rotarians
and Daughters of the American Revo-
CHEATING
Continued from page 1
"We think with the case investiga-
tor, faculty will be more likely to bring
charges to the official rather than to have
to investigate the case," Schoem said.
LSA sophomore Sarah May, one of
five students involved in formulating
the policy, said the changes will be
beneficial for students.
"I think it gives students more op-
tions than they had before. I think it will
be a lot easier for students who get into
a situation like this and it also takes
pressure off the professor," May said.
Besides structural changes to the
judiciary, the new policy also increases
information about LSA's policy on
cheating. The policy will require stu-
dents to sign a statement regarding aca-
demic intergrity and standards as apart
of the admissions process.
"If it doesn't actually stop some-
one, at least it will make them think
about it more," May said.

lution," "Students pray on a regular
basis," and "Town-gown relations are
good."
"Their categories sound hokey,"
Carriveau said. "If you want to go to
school for an education, what does it
matter how well it packs its stadium?It
is as if they are asking students to
expound on the virtues of theirschool,
not neccessarily their ratings in com-
parison to other schools."
According to Villard Book's press
release, the rankings "are entirely based
on how students at the college de-
scribed/evaluated it and reflects a strong
consensus of opinion by students at the
school."
In addition to the lists, each school
featured in the book has a two-page
summary discussing academics, life,
students, admission and financial aid.
Next to each summary page are the
vital statistics about the school and a
"What's Hot, What's Not" list.
Students surveyed at the University
ranked intercollegiate sports atop the

"What's Hot" list, followed by the li-
braries, computer labs, and location.
"Classes, lectures are large" topped
the "What's Not" list- which is con-
siderably longer than the "What's Hot"
list-and is followed by TAs teachin
introductory courses, deans, a problem
withsexdiscrimination,aproblem with
minority discrimination, TAs teaching
upper.courses, classes are hard to get
into and professors teach poorly.
One student said that while the book
may be interesting, it is not really an
objective representation.
"It is fair to print it, but I think that
it draws inaccurate conclusions an4
assumptions about the University of
Michigan and must do the same for
other schools," said LSA first-yearstu-
dent Michael Kaplan. "Especially at
Michigan, which has such a large stu-
dent population, I cannot put much
faith in their evaluations.
"Plus, I don't know how they de-
cided what was 'hot' here. I haven't
ever been to the library here."
