DEARBORN - The University
would need to raise in-state tuition 12
percent to compensate for a proposed
$8.4 million state appropriations cut,.
President James J. Duderstadt said yes-

versity would not raise tuition at
that level, administrators reiterated

mittee voted to deny the University a

proposal still must be voted on in the

Whitaker said the University would
need to accept an additional 3,500 in-
state students for the proportion ofresi-
dents to fall below 30 percent. "We
made our admission decisions, almost
all of them, for next fall." he said at the

not some of our most loyal students,
but they're some of our best,"
Whitaker said the first-year class

residents become residents and others
leave the University.
"There's no way to get from where
we are to 30 percent in September and

A superseding indictment of LSA
sophomore Jake Baker, which was is-
ied late Wednesday and also names an
ntario man as aco-defendant, does not
represent a major change in the case, the
prosecuting attorney said yesterday.
"We got this new indictment par-
tially to clarify the exact language that
we find unlawful in this case," U.S.
Attorney Ken Chadwell said. "In the
original indictment, everything was a
lot more vague."
Baker, who faces five counts oftrans-
itting threats over state or foreign
- undaries, was originally charged with
one countof sending threats. The charges
stem from Baker's use of a University
student's name in a sexually explicit
story he put on the Internet and focus on
e-mail correspondance he had with the
Ontario man, identified as Arthur Gonda.
The new indictment does not men-
tion Baker's Internet stoiy as an indi-
vidual charge, but offers it as context
Sr the fifth count against him.
"Jake is no longer being prosecuted
forusing the University student's name
in stories on the Internet," David Cahill,.
one of Baker's attorneys, said Wednes-
However, Chadwell said, the story
itself was never part of the charge
"The story is part of the context that
leads up to the charges against him."
Chadwell said. "The words that Gonda
and Baker exchanged over e-mail are
the violation of the law. And that is
what we are prosecuting."
Chadwell said the counts could put
Baker behind bars for 25 years should
he be convicted of all five, but that
scenario is unlikely.
"Technically, he could get 25 years
injail if Judge (Avern)Cohn decided to
stack the counts on top of each other."
Chadwell said. "I don't see that hap-
pening andlIdon't see us asking for that
"it is not a murder case. Threaten-
ing to do harm is significantly less than
actually doing harm," he said.

locate him and believe the name to be

us more seriously now that Gonda is

said. "They have been extremely coop-
erative so far, but now the search can

Douglas Mullkoff, who represents
Baker in federal court, said he hopes
the case will be dismissed. Chadwell
said he believes Cohn will hear the
trial, but the April 3 start date will

files for dismissal.
"We are very confident that we are
correct on the law," Chadwell said. "1
am sure that Judge Cohn will give us a
fair hearing. He is one of the smartest
judges on the bench here, and I am
confident that the case will be heard."
Chadwell said the fact that the case
involves the Internet presents a unique
situation to everyone involved.
"If we had a taped telephone con-
versation of Baker and Gonda which
used the same language, there would
be no controversy," Chadwell said. "Put

why, but it becomes confusing for ev-

have a direct impact on the tuition of its

resident tuition is tied to the market-

University keep non-resident enroll-

Green shamrocks will dot the streets today and people

St. Patrick's Day.
But everything should be blue instead.
The traditional color in Ireland for St. Patrick was royal
blue for 1,300 years, said Leo McNamara, a University
English professor who teaches an Irish history class.
*"Two hundred years ago, it becomes, for some weird

The traditional Irish holy day has become a day of
celebration for people of all cultures in the 1.500 years
since St. Patrick died.

is expecting 800 people to come in today, beginning at 9 a.m.
To celebrate, O'Sullivan's will serve traditional Irish
foods, including corned beef and cabbage and shepherd's
pie. Entertainment includes an Irish sing-a-long in the
afternoon and bagpipers around dinnertime.
Other loc al bars, including Mitch's Place,

morning with plenty of green beer on tap.
