Students turn to handbook for safety tips
Larceny Is the most
common crime on
By MATTHEW SMART
Daily Staff Reporter
* For students concerned about their
safety on campus and how to prevent
crime, "The Campus Safety Hand-
book" gives instructions for prevent-
ing and reporting many types of
crimes, including theft, sexual ha-
rassment and rape.
The handbook devotes a section to
the University sexual assault policy
and highlights steps for reporting such
0 ines and provides tips on preven-
on. The handbook urges survivors
of sexual assault to call for help im-
mediately, either to 911 or the Sexual
Assault Prevention and Awareness
Larceny accounts for more than
85 percent of all crime during each of
the last four years. The areas that have
the highest amount of such theft are
the residence halls, libraries, and rec-
"The bulk of the crime is larceny.
Everybody here is busy, and some
people are careless," said David Betts,
a crime prevention supervisor for the
University's Department of Public
He said that people in the resi-
dence halls don't realize that leaving
their room "just for a minute" is very
risky. He also said that in libraries,
people will spread their supplies
across a table and then walk away to
find a book or take a break.
Crime against individuals overall
has decreased significantly each year
for the past four years. "Most of our
crime is of a nonviolent nature," Betts
said. He added that programs directed
at preventing crime, more campus-
wide awareness, and services such as
Safewalk and Northwalk have aided
in decreasing crime.
Arrests and citations for alcohol-
and drug-related offenses are dramati-
cally up from 1992 as compared to
1993. There were 198 citations and
191 arrests for alcoholic offenses, up
from 92 citations and 93 arrests the
previous year. There were 215 arrests
for drug-related offenses, an increase
from 62 the prior year.
Betts attributed the drug-related
arrests to the annual Hash Bash and
an increasing number of participants.
Punishment for possession of mari-
juana on University property is man-
dated by state law and is up to one
year in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
The quick reference section of the
handbook contains the hours and
phone numbers for safety and secu-
rity offices. These include emergency,
general health, counseling and trans-
The handbooks have been distrib-
uted to all students, staff and faculty.

organization and has vowed to carry its
fight into Israeli cities.
In an earlier statement read out at
noontime prayers in mosques in the Gaza
Strip, the group's military wing known as
the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades declared
there would be more attacks.
"God will torment them with your
*ands and the hands of the faithful,"the
Al-Qassam statement said, calling the
Tel Aviv bombing revenge for the kill-
ing of three Hamas members after they
kidnapped and subsequently shot to
death an Israeli soldier last week. Hamas
gunmen had earlier killed two people in
Jerusalem's cafe district.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who
cut short a visit to London and con-
vened an emergency meeting of his
security advisers on his return, vowed
to hit back at Hamas hard, saying he
would seek legislation broadening the
powers of Israel's security police to
hunt down its leaders, detain them with-
out charge and use harsher methods in
Comments by Rabin and other top
Israeli officials indicated that a major
roundup of Hamas supporters was
planned for the West Bank, in Arab
East Jerusalem and, with or without the
cooperation of PLO Chairman Yasser
Arafat, in the Gaza Strip, where Pales-
tinians have self-rule.
"Ways need to be found so that
suiciders, the murderers of Hamas, will
know that they are not the only ones
who can be killed in their operations,
but also their houses, the houses of their
families, could be harmed," Rabin said.
"Certainly, I cannot find the words to
express the pain and anger at the mur-
derous attack against innocent civilians
in the heart of Tel Aviv by the Hamas
President Ezer Weizman, visiting the
injured in Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital,
said the Tel Aviv bombing would "re-
quire an unusually harsh reaction - dif-
ferent from what has been done so far.

panel discussion at Rackham yester-
day, to answer questions about their
The panel discussion, sponsored by
the University's Women in Science and
Engineering Program, consisted of five
female professors and graduate students,
who spoke about programs available
here at the University.
Panelists shared their exneriences
and thoughts on their fields of study
and offered students advice on how to
succeed. "Don't treat your textbook
as the Bible," said Rackham student
She made it clear that there are
many other sources of information to
learn from, and that the University
offers many options to pre-med and
Engineering school students.
Students expressed frustration
over selecting a major.
Linda Abriola, a professor of civil
and environmental engineering and one
of the panelists, said, "As you begin to
take more courses, you tend to gravi-
tate to your interests."
Just as the University is diverse,
so is the field of engineering, she said.
Panelists commented on the plethora
of majors available to students, rang-
ing from environmental to biomedi-
Jan Grenier, a professor in the
department of chemical engineering,
stressed to students that they should
not become overwhelmed by their
work. She encouraged students to "not
only study but enjoy it ... to create an
equilibrium between work and play."
Panelists told students to take ad-
vantage of office hours and encour-
aged even underclassmen to apply for
internships. They added that most
professors will remember you and
that it is never too early to start pursu-
ing your interests.
Everyone on the panel was eager
to help and distributed information to
better enable students to seek out help

BEA DING THIS

Daily Staff Reporter
She was told it was a matter of
"national security" and "military ne-
cessity." Dorothy Oda,a Japanese
American, had to live with that expla-
nation as a teenager during her three
year stay in an internment camp dur-
ing World War II.
Recounting her personal experi-
ence as a Japanese American in post-
World War II America, Dr. Oda, a
professor of nursing at the University
of California at San Francisco
(UCSF), addressed a small crowd at
the League yesterday.
Oda came to the University under
the auspices of the Martin Luther King
Jr./ 4esar Chavez/Rosa Parks Visit-
ing Scholar Program to speak about
her experience in an internment camp
in Topaz, Utah, following the bomb-
ing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese in
The presentation was titled, "Liv-
ing in Three Cultures: An American
Odyssey," and brought forth a com-
prehensive picture of her childhood
as a Japanese American and the is-
sues she faced growing up as a mem-
ber of both cultures.
Twelve thousand Japanese Ameri-
can families were placed in camps
and told their containment was a "mili-

her early adolescence. She was placed
in sole charge of more than 50 ill
patients in the camp hospital and at

Her family of four shared a single

Japanese Americans for three years.
In the beginning she suffered from
heat stroke and laryngitis due to the
hot dusty Utah wind.
"Everyone worked hard to make
the best of the situation," she said.
"We tried to make life as normal as
Some students took Oda's tale to
heart. "It makes you more aware of
what happened before you came to
be," said first-yearRC student Carmen
Liang. "You feel so lucky."
Oda was introduced by Dr. Patricia
Coleman Burns, director of the Of-
fice of Multicultural Affairs of the
School of Nursing. Burns presented
an extensive list of Oda's credentials
saying, "Dr. Oda is someone I think
we can all learn from."
Oda has been at UCSF for 20
years as a professor of nursing, and is
now a department chair in that aca-
demic division. She has been named a
fellow in the American Academy of
Nursing, has been involved with the
American Nursing Associatio, and has
received many other honors and
Oda first entered the field ofimedi-
cine as a nurse's aid in the camp
hospital, overseeing several different
wards alone at the same ufne. She
pursued her education fervently in
the years that followed, earning a
bachelor of arts, master's, and doc-
toral degree from UCSF.
Oda is a registered nurse and a
doctor of nursing science. As a young
woman, she attended nursing school
on scholarship and became a clinical
instructor in operating rooms after

helped her move forward to achieve a
high level of professional success.
In explaining her reasons for
speaking on such a personal topic,
Oda said she was "trying to contrib-
ute something that might be meaning-
ful to the three names the (Visiting
Scholar) program is named for."
