AWARENESS
Continued from page 1.
Michigan Union Art Lounge through-
out the week.
"This year we have had more stu-
dent participation in planning and imple-
menting programs than we have ever
had before. There are also going to be
many more activities," Paulson said.
The University's AIDS Awareness
Week will officially begin tonight with
a keynote address by River Huston, an
author, poet and woman who has con-
tracted HIV. She will speak about
"Women living with HIV" at the
Rackham amphitheater at 7 p.m.
Huston will lecture on her experi-
ence with HIV, as well as answer
questions from the audience. She plans
on emphasizing prevention and safer
sex techniques.
"HIV is a reality and if (people)
are going to have unprotected sex, it's
like playing Russian Roulette,"
Huston said.
"She is a fascinating person who
has a wonderful message, and I think
students will relate well to her. She is
one of the best speakers I have heard
who talks about being HIV positive,"
Paulson said. She said that her speech
is very uplifting because she will talk
about what she has accomplished since
she tested positive while in college.
Huston has spoken at various high
schools, colleges, prisons, rehabilita-
tion centers, seminars and conven-
tions throughout the country. Her au-
diences have ranged from five people
to thousands.
Huston not only speaks about her
experience, but she has also written
poetry books about living with HIV.
She will read some of her poetry dur-
ing the lecture, and one of her books,
"Jesus Never Lived Here," will be on

sale for $10 after her speech.
Paulson believes that one of the im-
portant goals of AIDS Awareness Week
is to "keep in mind that those individuals
who have engaged in risk-taking behav-
ior are at risk for infection."
"It's not who they are, but what
they do," she said.
Paulson thinks that students have
a high knowledge of the basics of the
disease, but sometimes fail to relate
the facts to their own lives.
"When it comes to personal be-
haviors and choices, the knowledge
doesn't always translate into taking
steps to prevent infection. On one
hand, students are well informed, but
on the other hand, there is still more
that needs to be done to prevent risk."
Jennifer Slate, an LSA first-year
student, said, "I think my friends are
aware because I know they take ad-
vantage of University Health
Service's free condoms.,,
Huston believes that AIDS Aware-
ness Week is important because it
continues to make the public think
about the effects of the disease.
Organizers of this year's AIDS
Awareness Week hope that through the
events, including Huston's speech, stu-
dents will think about risk-behaviors.
"HIV is preventable, and starting
today there could be no more cases of
HIV. That's areal possibility. It blows
my mind that we don't put more of an
effort into it," Huston said.
She said that although the media
covers AIDS Awareness Week, more
publicity is needed throughout the
year. "We need a body count every-
day on the news so people stay aware,"
she said.
Slate said that many students be-
lieve that they have enough informa-
tion about HIV/AIDS.
"I think students believe that they
are already well informed," she said.

THANKSGIVING

leaving Tatge stranded in Michigan
to work on a project for school.
He and some friends journeyed to
the northern Lower Peninsula to ski,
"but the ski resort was closed because
they didn't have enough snow. So we
just stayed there for a few days and
went crazy.
"We basically ended up driving
700 miles just to party," Tatge said.
The traditional home-cooking and
turkey took a twist for one student.
SusannaBahng,athird-yearInteflex
student, went home to Mt. Pleasant for
the weekend. "My parents showed me
the turkey that they had 'cooked.' After
lunch they told me that they had ordered
the turkey from Krogers. I was shocked.
I always thought they cooked it."
"I guess I can understand. My par-
ents are really busy," Bahng said. "It
was really good though. It was so moist."

BLOOD
Continued from page 2.
Voci said.
He also said that they tried to fo-
cus more on how much blood was
collected, and de-emphasize losing
by 1 percent.
The organizers changed some as-
pects of the drive this year to appeal to
more students. In the past, it has taken
two hours to donate blood, but this
year the waits were shortened.
"Red Cross really cooperated with

us and provided us with a sufficient
amount of nurses. The lines were
shorter this year than in the past,"
Voci said.
Voci and Vincent along with Neal
Fry, the Red Cross blood drive repre-
sentative at the University, went to
Columbus last weekend for the pre-
sentation of the trophy between the
third and fourth quarters of the Ohio
State-Michigan football game, along-
time tradition.
"It was a very hostile crowd," Voci
said. He added that the crowd was not
genial to University spectators.

SHOPPING
Continued from page 1
National outlets held large-scale
sales, marking merchandise down for
the holiday season kick-off. In particu-
lar, many retail chains like Jacobson's,
Crowley's and Dayton-Hudson's dis-
counted warm-weatherclothing, which
has not sold well thus far due to this
year's warm temperatures.
Jim Hartman, manager of the Ann
Arbor Meijer store, said merchandise
advertised in circulars and mailings
has sold extremely well this season.
"We're having a very successful sea-
son," Hartman said. "It's been real
busy, but it's been about the same as
every other year." Hartman said busi-
ness has not reached its peak yet - "It
builds up toward Christmas."
Smaller stores also did well. The
International Council of Shopping
Centers said sales from specialty
stores at 26 big malls around the coun-
try rose 9 percent Friday.
"We were looking at a good sea-
son. We didn't know it was going to
be quite this good," said John
Konarski, the trade group's research

"It's extremely busy here," said
Renee Majurin, a state police dis-
patcher at the Negaunee post. "There
are lots of accidents. We are in the
middle of the major snow storm
everyone's been talking about."
The National WeatherService said{
communities in the far west Upper
Peninsula were advised to stay off the
roads last night because of blowing
snow and decreasing visibility.
Snow was expected to continue
throughout the night, accumulating
as much as 12 inches by this morning,
the weather service said.
The Mackinac Bridge was closed
to traffic about 6 p.m. Sunday be-
cause of high winds, said Aggie
O'Brien of the Mackinac Bridge Au-
thority. The bridge was to reopen
once the winds died down.
A state police official in Jackson,
however, said his post has experi-
enced nothing out of the ordinary.
The University's chief meteorolo-
gist, Dennis Kahlbaum, said last night
that the weekend's storms are a har-

the arrest of the arsonist.
"The house was 90 to 95 percent
complete," said Leary. "The siding
was all on and the dry wall was pretty
much up, but it still needed carpeting."
Hunter and her children, ages 4, 8
and 17, planned to move into the new
home in time for Christmas. Hunter's
home and the home next door are th@
first homes built by Habitat for Hu-
manity in Ann Arbor. Eight houses
have been constructed in the
Ypsilanti area. The group plans to
build six more houses on Russell
Street.
The project was part of an agree-
ment between Target Stores and Habi-
tat for Humanity. Target had donated
two-thirds of the estimated $4000
for construction of the house.

Konarski said. He noted "people de
fer this kind of purchase" if they're
uncertain about the economy and their
own finances.
Companies that track retail sales
also reported gains.
MasterCard said it authorized
$726.6 million in sales Friday, up
36.2 percent from a year ago.
TeleCheck Services Inc., used by re-
tailers to help approve consume
checks, reported sales paid for by
check rose 5.7 percent Friday from a
year earlier.
LSA sophomore Bryan
Salisbury summed up his trip to
Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi by say
ing "Long lines everywhere, log
waits, the stores were packed,
Salisbury said after visiting Eddie
Bauer and American Eagle Outfi4

for himself. "It wasn't so packed
you couldn't get around - you
just had to weave in and out a bit."

binger of things to come.
"It's going to be snow-shower
as the cold front moves through,"he
said, predicting that high tempera-
tures would drop below 40 tomor-
row.
Unlike much of the state, Ann
Arbor was spared snow over the
holiday break. The city has yet to
experience an inch of accumula-
tion, even though Nov. 26 is the
average day by which such snowfall
occurs.
Winter also struck outside of
Michigan.
A blustery snowstorm shut down
the Minneapolis-St. Paul Interna-
tional Airport for part of the after-
noon Sunday, one of the busiest
travel days of the year, and canceled
about 100 airline flights.
Thunderstorms along the storm's
southern edge spun off tornadoes i*
Tennessee, killing two people. High
wind in Arkansas killed several
cattle and pitched their carcasses
into treetops.
