GROTRIAN
Continued from page 1
The office provides $120 million
in financial aid to 11,000 University
students, Grotrian said.
"The mission of the office is to
remove financial barriers to student
enrollment and retention," he said.
Of the $120 million in aid, Grotrian
said 56 percent comes from the fed-
eral government, 38 percent from in-
stitutional programs- and 6 percent
from state programs.

In the early 1980s, Grotrian said
the federal government provided 75
to 80 percent of financial aid funds.
"It's a credit to the institution that
as the federal funding has decreased,
that the institution has expanded its
own programs," he said.
Holbrook said he is not yet sure of
the procedure to fill the position. But
the next director will likely face new
challenges.
"A concern we have is the debt
levels that students have upon gradu-
ation and that will be a challenge for

the office and that will be a challenge
for the University," Grotrian said.
Prior to coming to the Univer-
sity, Grotrian was director of finan-
cial aid at Wayne State and
Valparaiso universities in the 1970s,
and taught geography at Valparaiso
and Indiana University in the late
1960s.
He received a bachelor's degree
in geography and business adminis-
tration from Valparaiso in 1962 and a
master's degree in geography from
Indiana in 1966.

CAMPAIGN
Continued from page 1l
and uses its own funds that count
toward the overall goal of $1 billion.
Although the campaign relies on
large gifts, smaller donations are alarge
part of the effort. Alumni are contacted
by telephone and asked to donate.
"We respect all those gifts. The
key is if you are going to make the
program, you need a few large gifts,"
Kinnear said.
Whitaker said the University is
following the example of private uni-

versities that have traditionally raised
significant money through donations.
Whitaker cited Princeton Univer-
sity as an example of successful pri-
vate support. Princeton has about
$500,000 in endowments - a large
account whose interest is spent by the
university -per student. These funds
supply the school with about $20,000
per student as a spendable resource
before tuition.
The University has about $25,000
in endowments per student or about
$1,400 available to spend on each
student before tuition.

William Caldwell has set up one
such endowment at the Universi
during the campaign. Caldwell a -
tended the University from 1946-49,
and received a master's degree in
business administration. He and his
wife, Jean, established a $250,000
fund for scholarships for women ath-
letes and donated $200,000 for the
renovation of Hill Auditorium.
Caldwell said he made the dona-
tions because of the "rewarding exp
rience" he had at the University.

KOOP
Continued from page I
"I agree with Mr. Rogers. It's nice
to take your time and do it right."
Koop served as a moderator be-
tween the Clinton administration and
doctors around the country. "I often
wonder what might have happened if
I had the same access to the Reagan
White House as I do the Clinton White
House," Koop said.
He criticized opponents of reform
who claim people without adequate
health insurance are unemployed and
lazy.
"If you believe that, I think you
should talk to the 200,000 people who
went bankrupt last year trying to pay
their health care bills," Koop said.
Koop said when he was surgeon
general he discovered "the real prob-
lem was not a health problem at all. It
was poverty."
Hospitals don't care for people
without insurance as well,Koop said.

Uninsured Americans are 1.2 to 3
times more likely to die from the
same diagnosis as those with health
insurance.
"America is infected with a prob-
lem worse than poverty, and that j
greed," Koop said.
He said the problem is not over-
paid doctors. "Patients are the most
greedy in the health care profession,"
Koop said. He said Americans expect
flawless treatment with the best tech-
nology available, even if it's not
needed.
"If they don't get it they are very
quick to sue," Koop said.
Koop's speech was well receiv*
by many in the crowd.
"I liked the way he kept it very
personal," said Engineering senior
Nisarg Shah. "He didn't try to force
his opinions on anyone."
However, LSA junior Cara
McDonagh said, "It would have been
nice if he would have been more spe-
cific."

"The first major work to

how physicists think."
-Simson L Garfinkel, Chrsian Siene Monitor

INTERNET
Continued from page 1
totally a rivalry-type thing," said John
Katzman, president of Princeton Re-
view. "We also offered if they would
ask nicely."
Katzman added, "These are people
without a sense of humor and lousy
manners. They don't know the magic
word."
Grayer did not find the offer humor-
ous. He said Katzman made the offer as
a joke to "trivialize" the situation. "It's
not a legitimate business issue when
you trivialize it. How much could the
name really be worth when it's reduced
to a case of beer?" Grayer said.
Kaplan's Vice President for Op-
erations Andy Rosen said, "We've
had lots of conversations. There was
never a serious offer. ... (Katzman)
said it last week when he realized he
was going to lose this after four
months."
Katzman said he isn't bothered by
the situation, however. He said Kaplan
has been attempting to copy Princeton
Review and its materials for several
years. When Princeton Review moved
forward and acquired an Internet ad-
dress for itself, it bought one with the
name "Kaplan" to deter Kaplan from
copying and banking in on the idea.
"For example, if we come out with
a video for the SAT, they will do it six

months after ours," Katzman sai
"It's like having an annoying little
brother." .
He added, "For us the Internet is
about using innovation and using tech-
nology. For Kaplan, the web is some-
thing to whine about and copy us."
Rosen contested Katzman's claims
by explaining Kaplan has been around
for over 40 years and has been key to
standardized test preparation, compare
to Princeton Review's emergence in
the 1980s. "Princeton Review offers
solid programs," Rosen said, "but not
at the same level as Kaplan offers. If
Katzman wants tocall it 'annoying,' so
be it.... This annoying little brother is
also three times the size," Rosen said,
referring to the number of students
using Kaplan annually.
Grayer said he is pleased with the
decision, and is pleased that this case
sets precedence for the future. He said
students at the University will be able
to access "kaplan.com" next week and
reach Kaplan via the Internet. Mean-
while, Kaplan has a service through
America Online.
Katzman said Princeton Review will
continue servicing students through its
Internet address, "www.review.com."
"I'm bummed about the beer, b4
not much else," Katzman said.
"(Kaplan)just bought the most expen-
sive beer in the world," he added, refer-
ring to the legal fees spent by Kaplan
on the case.

"Krauss not only has the gift of learned
writing for the research scientist, but can
also convey understanding and exciting
insights to nonspecialists."
-The Science Teacher
"A splendid book for those who want to
tour the forefront of theoretical physics
with a lively and inventive mind."
-Washington Post Book World
"A book full of charming, easy-to-read,
and-surprisingly!-totally accurate
discussions of phyical ideas."
-Douglas Hofadter, authorofGid, Escher: Bach
"If you really want to know how
physicists tick ... I can think of no
better way than sitting down and
reading this book."
-David Hughes, NewScientist

Mandela to meet with Aristide

Newsday
WASHINGTON - South Afri-
can President Nelson Mandela, at the
behest of American officials, will meet
with Haitian President Jean-Bertrand
Aristide today to urge a broader spirit
of reconciliation with opponents when
Aristide returns to Port-au-Prince.
"Without in any way prescribing
to the leadership of Haiti," Mandela
said during a White House news con-
ference with President Clinton yes-

terday, "we sincerely hope that they
will realize the crucial importance o@
national reconciliation and to heal the
wounds of the past by involving all
the parties which may have been at
cross-purposes with one another."
In a U.N. speech Tuesday,
Aristide, promising to return to Haiti
by Oct. 15, said he could not support
the amnesty agreed to by former Presi-
dent Carter last month for leaders of
the 1991 Haitian military coup.
