DEBATE
Continued from page 1
any public institution in Michigan.
"Audits have been done that say it's
asound entity. It was stopped for politi-
cal purposes," said Debbie Stabenow,
Wolpe's running mate. She said the
pay-in amounts could be raised to offset
revenue lost to lower interest rates, say-
ing the program would be in the best
interests of middle class.
"All we can do is give people
more opportunities to save (for tu-
ition). The government can't have a
program for everything," said Dennis
Schornack, an Engler campaign aide,
adding that the governor's tax cuts
have let people keep more money.
Wolpe made increasing support
for college students his No. 1 priority

when given six issues facing the state
budget, calling for adequate levels of
financial aid.
Engler chose law enforcement,
noting he had restarted state trooper
training programs after the force's
numerical strength had dwindled due
to retirements.
The candidates debated prison
policies. "Prisoners are in prison to be
punished," Engler said, adding that
basic skills, like literacy, were all
prisoners could be expected to learn.
Wolpe, who has backed giving
scholarships to inmates, said reha-
bilitation is important as well.
"We want prisoners to come out
with skills so they don't return to a
life of crime," he said.
Engler said this might be unrea-
sonable. "I think it's time we stand up

for people who live by the rules," he
said. "There are people who can reha-
bilitate themselves, but I don't agree
with that as a policy in general."
Gun control was hotly debated.
"I certainly support the Second
Amendment," Engler said. "What
makes adifference is locking up prison-
ers."
"I don't see what weapons of war
have to do on the streets," Wolpe said,
refering to Engler's opposition to the
federal assault ban in the crime bill
passed in August.
The two also addressed negotia-
tions with legislators, something that
may be more important for Wolpe.
Currently the state House is evenly
split and the Republicans hold a ma-
jority in the Senate. Both candidates
predicted their party would control

both houses after the election.
"We negotiate in the Legislature.
Some in the media call that trading,"
Engler said. "I'm willing to work on
solving problems."
Wolpe said bargaining was not a
good way to govern. "I don't think
it's appropriate to trade favors," he
said. "I think people are tired with the
wheeling and dealing that goes on all
the time."
For the first time in the debates, the
abortion issue came up. "My position is
consistent with Roe vs. Wade," Wolpe
said. "Women should be trusted tomake
that very personal decision."
Engler disagreed. "I've always
been a pro-life legislator," he said,
adding that abortion should only be
an option to save the life of the mother,
not in cases of rape or incest.

SAFEWALK

20-minute radius of the Diag and
Bursley Hall, respectively.
Not only have students been call-
ing for an escort, but many have ex-
pressed interest in donating their time.
Safewalk has turned them down
because volunteers must undergo a
training period at the beginning of
each term, Kessell said.
"Right now, we're beginning to

call up people who are currently vol-
unteers and we're beginning to ask
people to work more shifts than usua"
Kessell said. W
Requests for walks go through
peaks and troughs.
"In a certain sense it's kind of
frustrating," Kessell said. "When
something like this happens, you'll
see walks go up and go down, until
something happens again. Once
people begin to feel complacentagain,
they will be less cautious."

the more than 100 tips accumulated
by the police since last Thursday's
attack.
The day-to-day operation of the
task force will be headed by Det. Lt.
John Atkinson of the Major Crimes
Section of AAPD and Det. Lt.
Domenick Alagna from the Michigan
State Police Criminal Intelligence
Division Office.
DPS is providing facilities for
the task force, which has moved
from its City Hall location. The
move was made to an undisclosed
site to accommodate for the number
of investigators working on the case.
Since the formation of the task force,
Ann Arbor police have clamped down
on the amount of information being
released to thepublic and media. At this

point, they fearfurther details about the
conduct of their investigation would
hurt rather than help them.
Reward forinformation leading to
the identification and arrest of the
suspect responsible for the sexual as-
saults -- advertised in The Ann Ar-
bor News - currently exceeds
$36,000.
The suspect is a Black male witl
light complexion, approximately six
feet tall, about 170 pounds, between
25 and 35 years old, with short hair
and a ponytail or tuft of hair at the
back of his neck.
He was last seen wearing a short-
sleeved, light purple "polo-type"knit
shirt with knit bands on the sleeves
and blue jeans.
Anyone with information abo
the serial rapist is asked to contaT
the task force at 994-9297 or the city
police tip line at 996-3199.

INSTITUTE
Continued from page ±
nowned Fraunhofer Institute for La-
ser Technology in Germany.
Fraunhofer-USA, an affiliate of
the German firm, will aid in establish-
ing this high-profile center. The pres-
tigious Aachen-based institute,
founded in 1949, is known for its
efficiency in organization. The
Fraunhofer Institutes' philosophy in-
volves synthesizing research from
different fields, and making it avail-
able and useful to private industry.
Fraunhofer-USA is also provid-
ing funding for the institute. The Uni-
versity institute's price tag is $15 mil-
lion for its first five years of opera-
tion, and initial funding, in the form
or a $250,000 grant, is being provided
by the state.
Major funding for the Center for
Laser Processing will also come from
20 small- and medium-sized compa-
nies in laser processing and auto sup-
pliers, as well as industrial partners

including all the Big Three
automakers: Chrysler Corp., Ford
Motor Co. and General Motors Corp.
Grant funding along with con-
tracted research will pay for student
internships. Internships at the ins*
tute may become part of the curricu-
lum for the new master's of engi-
neering degree offered by the col-
lege, and part of a developing doc-
torate of engineering degree. The
master's program requires a one-
term internship. The degrees are
designed to be more practical than
traditional engineering degrees,
which limit the scope of student
engineering education to one fielf.
Engineering first-year student
Cindy King, who has not declared
her major yet, said she may pursue a
degree in mechanical engineering.
King said she thinks the institute
will be effective in helping students
get jobs after graduation.
"A lot of times you learn what's
in the classroom, and you go out in
the world and it's different," slo
said.

HAZING
Continued from page 1
chapters of campus fraternities.
The amendments double the term of
sanctions the Greek Activities Review
Panel (GARP) can hand down. Chap-
ters founds guilty of hazing can now be
banned from Greek activities - in-
cludingrushevents andGreek Week-
and excluded from intramural sports
for up to two years. Responsible frater-
nities also lose their IFC membership
and cannot have social events with so-
rorities during their suspension.
Following an alcohol-related haz-
ing incident that sent a Sigma Phi
Epsilon pledge to the hospital Sept. 4,
GARP ruled Oct. 2 to suspend the
fraternity from IFC-sponsored activi-
ties. Sig Eps surrendered its charter
three days later, citing "excessive"
IFC restrictions.
Under the new rules, complaints
may be brought by anyone. Previ-

ously, only fraternity members could
bring complaints.
The appellate board was redefined
to expedite the process. In past cases,
the cases were heard by both factions
comprising GARP--fraternities and
sororities. Only the part of GAR
made up by fraternities will deal wit
hazing complaints.
"This is an important step to help
correct the problems within the sys-
tem. We can take responsibilities for
our own actions," said Chris Wyatt,
president of Sigma Chi fraternity.
The Presidents' Council, which
passed the amendments to the IFC
constitution, is a newly-formed board
made up of the presidents of all frate
nities on campus.
"It gives IFC an appropriate way
to handle things it didn't have be-
fore," said Steven Townsend, execu-
tive vice president of IFC. "The Sig
Eps incident is not representative of
the Greek system as a whole."
