Virus hits Angel
Hall computers
Information Technology Divi-
sion computer consultants discov-
ered several types of computer vi-
ruses at the Angell Hall computing
site Feb. 3.
Consultants found viruses on al-
most all of the new Dell Pentium-90
computers.
Bruce Burrell, an ITD user ser-
vices consultant, said the affected
computers have been fixed and modi-
fications were made to prevent future
infections. "Essentially, everything is
stable."
Burrell said ITD is concerned that
disks used in the infected computers
could spread viruses to personal com-
puters.
ITD has set up a station in the
Angell Hall site for detecting and
removing viruses. ITD urges any-
one who used Dell Pentium-90 com-
puters between mid-January and
Feb. 3 to check their disks for vi-
ruses.

MSA members to help test Mcard

By Amy Klein
Daily Staff Reporter
As the University plans to unveil
its answer to off-campus Entr6e Plus
this fall, the Michigan Student As-
sembly will be involved with testing
the new card in upcoming months.
Approximately 1,000 random stu-
dents have been selected to pilot the
card, beginning in March. Some MSA
members will be issued test cards to
try at specified stores. Representa-
tives will then offer input and criti-
cism about the card.
"We need to look at how user-
friendly this card is going to be for
students," said LSA Rep. Jonathan
Freeman, a sophomore.
A final product is planned for
spring and summer terms. Mcard will
be available for incoming students

next fall.
The new card will feature a bank
stripe to be used for purchases at
participating merchants and provide
access to ATM machines. Entre Plus
perks will remain on the new Mcard,
allowing students continued access to
vending machines and photocopiers.
Mcard, unlike Entree Plus, will
ask students to deposit money in ad-
vance into a First of America bank
account. The amount of money on the
card will no longer be added to tuition
bills.
"The attraction of Entree Plus was
that it allowed students to charge the
amounts directly to their parents," Free-
man said. "The Mcard is less user-
friendly because the banking laws pro-
hibit us from directly doing this."
LSA Rep. Brian Elliott, a junior,

agreed that the new card still has a
few glitches.
"There's a lot of problems associ-
ated with the card and they all fall
under the fact that it's difficult for
students to set up. First they have to
open the account with First of
America," Elliott said.
Another problem arises with the
transfer of funds from Entr6e Plus
accounts - which are charged to
tuition bills before purchases are made
- to the new Mcard.
"What we're trying to work with
now is what happens when you have
money stuck in Entrde Plus and you
want to have an Mcard," Freeman said.
The program has received many
positive reviews because it includes
off-campus establishments, though
each business will have to sign-up for

the service.
"I think this is a really good idea
and I hope they release it soon to the
University," said LSA Rep. Paul
Scublinsky, a junior.
Freeman said the card would offer
advantages not only to students, but
also to participating businesses. "This
offers free competition among busi-
nesses in this community. The
University's finally following the free-
market idea," he said.
Elliott predicts the new card will
not attract as many students as Entrde
Plus.
"Entr6e Plus was not something
you had to physically front money
for. The only advantage here is that
you will be able to use it all over Ann
Arbor, but I think usage will go down,"
Elliott said.

DNR hears
deer baiting
concerns:
ban possible
DETROIT (AP) - To some hunt-
ers, it's a matter of efficiency: Dump
a pile of carrots and beets in the woods,
and deer are sure to come.
For others, it's a violation of the
outdoorsman's code of conduct, re-
flecting modern society's demand for
instant gratification.
As deer baiting has grown in popu-
larity, so have the objections. The
state Department of Natural Resources
is considering several proposals to
outlaw or drastically curtail the prac-
tice.
"Baiting stinks," Colin Farmer of
Flint, who has hunted for 30 years, told
the Detroit Free Press. "Because of
baiting, we have a whole generation of
hunters who know nothing about deer
biology or woods craft, except that if
you throw out a pile of vegetable trash
in the woods, deer will eat it."
Baiters don't see it that way.
"There's no difference between
me putting out a few bags of carrots or
apples and somebody else waiting for
deer next to a corn field or by an oak
tree that dropped a big pile of acorns;"
said Vincent Heldt of Traverse City.
"Things have changed in society.
A lot of us work really long hours, and
between that and family demands, we
don't have the time to spend a week or
two in deer camp like our grandfa-
thers."
DNR has scheduled six public hear-
ings on the issue across the state. There
is so much interest that today's open
meeting in Marquette will be telecast
live across the Upper Peninsula.
Two members of the Natural Re-
sources Commission, chair Larry
DeVuyst and Jerry Bartnick, have sug-
gested limiting the amount of bait hunt-
ers can put out to five gallons at a time.
Baiting has always been legal in
Michigan, but relatively few hunters
did it until recent years. Now, with no
restrictions on the amount of food they
can pile in the woods to draw deer,
some hunters dump tons each fall.
Many people believe baiting was
spurred by the advent of the com-
pound bow about 15 years ago. The
easier-to-use compound bow is used
by more than 90 percent of the
300,000-plus hunters who buy Michi-
gan archery licenses.
Because a bow is a close-range
weapon, archers were more likely to
use bait to draw deer close to them
than were rifle hunters, who can kill
at ranges of200 to 300 yards.
Many of those archery hunters also
hunt in rifle season - the 15-day
firearms season is in the middle of a
90-day archery season - and the
practice of baiting carried over. As
the number of bait piles grew, so did
the number of hunters who felt they
had to bait to compete.
"I'm not for it, but I do it in self-
defense," said Will Cooley of Livo-
nia. "If we didn't, we wouldn't have
any deer on our property. They'd be
drawn (away) by people who do bait,"

Former White House chef speaks at 'U'
Haller shares experiences of cooking for presidents for more than 22 years

By Sarabeth Miller
For the Daily
It sometimes got hot in the White
House, but behind the scenes of his-
tory, Henry Haller's kitchen kept
cooking.
The White House's former execu-
tive chef, who served his dishes to
Presidents for more than 22 years,
shared the triumphs and tribulations
of being a White House staff member
yesterday with an audience of about
200 in the Michigan League.
Haller trained in his native Swit-
zerland before emigrating to Canada
and eventually coming to the United
States. In New York he gained the
attention of Vice President Lyndon
Johnson, who later selected him to
replace President Kennedy's chef.
Haller learned the No. 1 rule his
first day of work, Feb. 1, 1966. He
said Mrs. Johnson told him, "Always
keep the President happy."
From the Johnson era to the Reagan
administration, through Democrats
and Republicans, Haller said he never

"The Democrats keep everyone

cans are more selective," said a jok-
ing Haller, who described a 1,400-
person buffet he served during the
Johnson administration.
Haller said he never let the chal-
lenge of preparing elaborate dishes
for distinguished people with very
different tastes phase him.
In commenting on his culinary
success, Haller said, "Perfection is no
accident."
As chef, Hailer was able to de-
velop unique relationships with the
five Presidents he served, and he said
he developed a strong attachment to
all of them.
"My relationships with the Presi-
dents depended on who they were as
people, not as Presidents," Haller said.
If they were friendly and outgo-
ing, they were more likely to be his
friend than if they were reserved, he
explained.
"I can say with a clear conscience
that President Ford I liked the best,"
Haller said. "He didn't owe anybody
anything, he was just interested in
doing his job."
Not only did Haller's career intro-
duce him to five Presidents, but it also
gave him the opportunity to meet
queens, kings, ambassadors, emperors
and celebrities from all over the world.
The highlights of his career were
the 1973 POW dinner for the pilots
who fought in Vietnam, and the bi-
centennial celebration of the United
States in 1976, Hailer said.
He also mentioned enjoying the
weekends during the Reagan adminis-
tration when Nancy Reagan was gone.
"That's when the President and I
let the good times begin," he laughed,
explaining how he would cook all of
the foods that Nancy Reagan did not
allow.
Haller emphasized that politics
were never discussed among the staff
members.
"You never knew what would leak
out or who you'd offend," he explained.
Still, Haller said he often knew
about the United States' affairs be-
fore the public. He added that every-

thing he knew he kept a secret.
Working for the White House gave
Haller a unique perspective on Ameri-
can politics and government affairs,
he said.
"I got a better inside look into the
matter. I could judge the person be-
hind the event, and that made all of
the difference," he said.
Haller retired from his position in
1987 and published a book, "The
White House Family Cookbook." He
still keeps in contact with members of
