CONGRESS
Continued from page 1.
At the hourlong meeting in the
White House Cabinet Room, Clinton
told the Republican and Democratic
congressional leaders he wants to meet
with them more regularly from now
on, to see whether bipartisan efforts
really are possible.
Clinton applauded the House for
its votes Wednesday on a series of
internal reforms proposed by
Gingrich, including a rule requiring
congress to submit to the laws it
passes for the rest of the country.
Afterward, each side said the other
made concessions - but in an inaus-
picious note, they disagreed on how
far those concessions went.
Clinton said Gingrich agreed to
avert a "bidding war" on tax cuts by
making sure any GOP proposal for a
middle-class tax cut is balanced by
equivalent spending cuts. Clinton has
proposed a $60 billion tax cut that he
says would not increase the federal
budget deficit. White House officials
said they believe the Republicans will
find it politically impossible to cut
enough additional spending to allow
the larger tax cuts they have pro-
posed.
But House Majority Leader Dick
Armey (R-Texas) said that wasn't a
concession, adding that Republicans
already intended to make deep spend-
ing cuts before considering any tax
reductions.

SUSPECT

cate the blood matched certain ge-
netic markers of the victim's blood.
More elaborate DNA tests are be-
ing done on those stains, as well as
skin tissue left on the glove and stains
found on the sidewalk near the crime
scene. Results from the tests could be
available as soon as next week.
The serial rapist is believed to
have committed five rapes and seven
attempted rapes. One of the rape vic-
tims was killed during a May 7 attack
last year. The last rape occurred last
October.
DNA evidence was collected from
four of the victims and indicated one
man was responsible for those rapes.
Ann Arbor Police Detective Gre-
gory Stewart, a taskforce member,
testified that Mitchell said he found
the gloves while walking home and
put them on because he was cold.
The Christmas Eve robbery at-
tempt allegedly occurred around 12:30
a.m. when the woman was walking
alone to her cousin's home in the
1800 block of Dexter Avenue.
She described her attacker as a
man approximately 5 feet 10 inches
tall, weighing about 180 pounds, wear-
ing a black ski mask, a blue parka,
black sweat pants, and white gloves.
The woman, however, could not
specify his race because he was
clothed from head to toe. She was
taken to University Hospitals where
she received eight stitches for cuts to

her lip and the inside of her mouth.
Police said the method of the attack
resembles the serial rapes. Mitchell al-
legedly assaulted a woman walking by
herself on the city's west side with a
blow to the head. Police feel he also fits
the physical description of the rapist
released to the media.
Ann Arbor Police Officers James
Baird and Steve Lawrence arrested
Mitchell around 4 a.m. in the 1000
block of Maiden Lane after receiving
a call. Mike DeCamillo, a Yellow
Cab driver, contacted his dispatcher
after he saw Mitchell - in clothes
matching the Christmas Eve assailant
- walking the streets.
"He fit the general physical descrip-
tion of the man the police were looking
for,"DeCamillotestified. "As he walked
across the street, he walked under a
street light. He took his right hand out of
his pocket-at which timeI noticed he
was wearing a white glove."
DeCamillo testified that he fol-
lowed Mitchell by cab until the po-
lice arrived. Police said Mitchell
offered no resistance when he was
arrested but does have a prior crimi-
nal record but refused to comment

any further.
Area cab companies and their driv-
ers were told to be on the lookout for
the would-be purse snatcher or to
report any fares they had matching
his description.
In court, Keith Sheppard testified
that Mitchell had been staying with
him at his apartment since December.
Mitchell's girlfriend of 2 1/2 years,
Angela Moore, disputed Mitchell's
claims to the arresting officer that he
was with her on Christmas Eve.
Neither Sheppard nor Moore could
account for Mitchell's whereabouts
during the time of the alleged incident.
Mitchell was the prime suspect in
a Sept. 2, 1993 attack when a 24-year-
old jogger in the 1500 block of West
Liberty Street was grabbed from be-
hind. Her attacker tried to remove her
shorts, but fled when she screamed.
A tracking dog was called to the
site in that case around midnight. The
dog led police to the Carolina Av-
enue home where they found Mitchell.
He was later released when the woman
couldn't identify him and when he
passed a lie-detector test.

Daily Staff Reporter
Twenty-four years of service on
the University Board of Regents came
to a close for Democrats Paul Brown
of Mackinac Island and James Waters
of Muskegon at the December re-
gents meeting.
"It has been a pleasure and an honor
to serve on the Board of Regents,"
Waters said near the end of the meet-
ing.
Both Brown and Waters were
elected together to the board in 1970
and to two additional eight-year terms.
"Paul and I together traveled around
the state on three different occasions,"
Brown said. "I will always have an
interest in the University."
In November, the two lost re-elec-
tion in the GOP sweep to Republicans
Andrea Fischer of Birmingham and
Daniel Horning of Grand Rapids.
"It's been an honor to represent the
people in Michigan," Brown said. "It's
especially been a privilege to work
with the executive officers."
At their last meeting, the two re-
ceived praise from a fellow regent with
whom they sometimes differed politi-
cally - Republican Regent Deane
Baker of Ann Arbor.
"I worked with Jim and Paul for 22
years. I know them to be good and
honorable men," Baker said. "I think
they've served the University well. We
always tried to work for the benefit of
the University at large. Each new board
member brings a different perspective

and a different view."
Brown earned his bachelor's and
law degrees from the University in
1956 and 1961, respectively:
"Regent Brown, one of my major
impressions of him is he had an institu-
tional memory and that was very im-
portant because he knew what had gone
on before, what had been tried," said
Regent Rebecca McGowan (D-Ann
Arbor). "You didn't feel like you were*
reinventing the wheel all the time."
Waters graduated from Western
Michigan University in 1967 and earned
his law degree from the University in
1970. As a University student, Waters
chaired theBlackLaw School Alliance
and served as a leader in the Black
Action Movement.
"Regent Waters was oneofthemost
reliable individuals I have ever had the
oleasure of working with," McGowan*
said. "He was just a wonderful col-
league in that regard. You could rely on
what he told you."
The new board will convene with
its first meeting in February. The board
canceled the January meeting, citing
lack of business.

common viruses more acute - the

viral infections are very similar.
"Colds and many other viruses are
most contagious early on," Simon
said.
Before the body forms antibodies
against viruses, they are the most con-
tagious.
However, the HIV virus mutates
during the asymptomatic period, and
when the body's antibodies can no
longer fight the mutated virus, conta-
giousness rises again and the pre-
AIDS period develops into full-blown
AIDS.
The researchers used computer
modeling, developed over 6 years, to
determine the contagiousness pat-
terns.
"HIV is among the scariest dis-
eases. It's very difficult to study di-
rectly. We've decided the only way is
to study global patterns," said Simon,
a professor of mathematics, econom-
ics and public policy.
"We found that the only kind of
contagiousness parameters that would
match our computer parameters with
real-world data is thispattern," Simon
said.

Journal of Acquired Immune Defi-
ciency Syndromes, has several impli-
cations:
Since the body does not begin to
produce HIV antibodies until two
months after infection, an antibody
blood test cannot prove that a person
is not infected. The antibody test,
which is the least expensive and most
commonly used, is not as conclusive
in the early months as a more expen-
sive test, which checks for the pres-
ence of the actual HIV virus.
"People that are (testing) HIV-
negative may be playing a more im-
portant role in transmission than we
thought," Jacquez said.
The risk of becoming infected
increases with the number of sexual
partners, simply because there are
greater odds of catching someone dur-
ing their primary infection phase.
"It's not just how many partners
they've had in the past, it's when
they've had the partners," Koopman
yid.
Few to no symptoms show up
during the initial infection phase -
sometimes a person will carry the
HIV virus for up to eight years before
any AIDS symptoms surface.
Therefore, without conclusive
tests or visible symptoms, many per-
sons continue their sexual practices
during the initial 60 days of infection
without knowingjust how contagious
they are.

"The eerie part of it is that the
standard HIV tests show up negative
during that period because the anti-
bodies have not formed yet," Simon
said.
HIV vaccine trials scheduled to
begin next year may be fundamen-
tally flawed, according to the research-
ers, because the testing performed on
the vaccines to date has only deter-
mined their effectiveness in prevent-
ing an individual from becoming in-
fected with HIV.
The researchers say the trials
should be modified to test the vac-
cine's ability to reduce contagious-
ness during the primary phase of in-
fection.
"You might not detect (the ability
to reduce contagiousness) if the only
thing you're looking for is blocking
infection, and that's all we're say-
ing," Jacquez said.
If the vaccines could decrease the
contagiousness of the virus during
the first two months, "That would
stop the epidemic," Koopman said.
"We're saying that this first stage
drives the epidemic."
The results of the study make the
comparison between HIV and other
