.'M' hockey team advances to semifinals

By Darren Everson
Daily Hockey Writer
MADISON-The Michigan hockey team
advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA
Tournament for the third time in four years
with a hard-fought 4-3 victory over Wiscon-
sin Saturday.
The Wolverines (30-7-1 overall) with-
*tood a rowdy pro-Badger crowd and a late
rush on freshman goalie Marty Turco to move
on to the hockey final four in Providence, R.I.
Michigan will face Maine in a national semi-

final game Thursday.
"Obviously this was a hostile environment
to be hanging on to a one-goal lead," said
Michigan coach Red Berenson. "For the most
part, I thought our kids did a good job keeping
their heads in the game."
Mike Knuble, the Wolverines' leading goal-
scorer, beat Wisconsin goalie Kirk
Daubenspeck twice on the evening. His sec-
ond goal, which came on a power play at the
11:51 mark of the third period, put Michigan
ahead, 4-3. The Wolverines then held on for

the victory.
"We've been a pretty good team in the
third period; I think our record would speak
for that," Berenson said. "We hung on (to the
lead) pretty well."
The Wolverines had several chances to put
more distance between themselves and the
Badgers, but Wisconsin goalie Kirk
Daubenspeck would not allow it. The sopho-
more netminder stopped 36 shots, including
15 of Michigan's 16 attempts in the second

Michigan tops
Stanford for
NCAA title
By Michelle Lee Thompson
Daily Sports Writer
INDIANAPOLIS - For the first
*ime in five years, the Michigan
Wolverines are National Champi-
Not since 1989, when the men's
basketball team won the NCAA Tour-
nament, have the Wolverines held
that distinction.
TheMichigan men's swimming and
diving team won its first NCAA title in
34 years over the weekend, dethron-
Obg three-time defending champion
Stanford 561-475 at the Indiana Uni-
versity-Purdue University at Indianapo-
lis Natatorium.
The victory tied Michigan with Ohio
State for first in all-time official cham-
pionships with 11.
Tom Dolan, named NCAA
Swimmer of the Year, set American
records in the 500-yard and 1650
freestyle and the 400 individual
medley. Dolan racked up 60 points
for the Wolverines, who finished
with 516.
"Tom's just a god right now,"
Stanford senior Brian Retterer said of
the Michigan sophomore.

Senior co-captain Gustavo Borges
chipped in another 60 points for the
wolverines, winning the 50, 100 and
200 freestyle events.
Borges' most astounding perfor-
mance came during his leg of the 400
medley relay, when he pulled the Wol-
verines from fifth to second with his
Freshmen Jason Lancaster and'
Owen von Richter pulled in tallies with
top-eight finishes. Both were individual
op-10 scorers.
The Wolverines have not won a
National Championship in swimming
and diving since 1961, when this

LSA sophomore Jake Baker was ar-

None of the last three Michigan Student
Assembly elections have run smoothly. With
election results announced early Friday morn-
ing, more than 200 previously untallied ballot
envelopes were discovered yesterday.
The envelopes found yesterday were vali-
dated and still sealed. All the ballots were LSA
students' votes.
The new ballots helped push Wolverine Party
member Brooke Slavik into one of nine LSA
seats, ousting previously reported winner Michael
St. John.
In unofficial results posted on the windows of
the MSA office Saturday, St. John was reported as
the ninth winner of an LSA seat. St. John was a
Michigan Party member, and his defeat drops
the party's control from seven to six LSA seats.
The executive officer winners remained unaf-
fected by the new ballot results.
Election committee member Amy St. Clair
said that the staff found the ballots in MSA
chambers yesterday.
"They were in the process of going through
chambers and found already validated, still-sealed
ballots," St. Clair said. "There's a lot of paper
lying around and they were there."
Election committee Director Christine Young
said the results released on Saturday were unoffi-
cial and subject to change. The Election Court
must certify the results no later than tomorrow.
"This has happened in the past so we've learned
to say unofficial. I definitely feel really bad, but
mistakes happen in all elections on this campus.
That's why we say it's unofficial," Young said.
Last spring, MSA faced allegations of elec-
tion fraud. The previous fall the election direc-
tor resigned following reports of alcohol use
during ballot counting.
LSA-SG Election Director Paul Garter said he
received approximately 200 additional LSA-SG
ballots late yesterday afternoon. The LSA-SG
ballots were part of the MSA voting envelopes
given to students.
"I don't know if that was all the ballots. Those
were only the LSA-SG ones," Garter said.
Although he was reported to have won by only
a 130-vote margin, President-elect Flint Wainess

Michian Party'
takes majority
By Amy Klein

While taking the executive offices in
both the Michigan Student Assembly and
the LSA Student Government, the Michi-
gan Party also grabbed 60 percent of the
open MSA seats, according to unofficial
election results posted on Friday and Sat-
Official election results will be approved
by the Election Court today or tomorrow.
The Michigan Party took seven out of the
nine LSA seats on the assembly. As the largest
school at -the University, LSA has the most
seats on MSA.
The Michigan Party now holds 19 of
MSA's 43 seats, while the Students' Party
falls close behind with 15 seats. The Wol-
verine Party will have five seats and inde-
pendents took four seats.
.MSA President-elect Flint Wainess said
he was excited about the Michigan Party's
new standing in the assembly.
"Obviously I'm pleased that the Michi-
gan Party picked up the majority of the
open seats, but more importantly (Vice
President-elect SamGoodstein) and I are
no longer going to speak solely as repre-
sentatives of the Michigan Party. Instead,
we are the speakers of the .assembly,"

said the overlooked ballots did not affect his win.
"It increased my margin of victory by 27 votes,"
he said.
. Newly elected LSA Rep. Olga Savic was
upset to learn of the discovered ballots.
"You'd think there'd be some kind of rhyme
or reason to the way they do these things," Savic
said. "This is not a good thing to say the least. I find
that very irresponsible that they don't keep track
of where the ballots are. That's MSA for you."

In its first outing in LSA Student Govern-
ment politics, the Michigan Party successfully
captured the executive offices of the organiza-
tion in last week's election.
Michigan Party candidates Rick Bernstein
and Steve Madhavan garnered 1,231 votes while
LSA Students' Party candidates James Kovacs
and Sara Deringer received 1,198 votes.
Of the five ballot questions, two failed, in-
cluding a proposal to increase the number of
representatives from 15 to 19 and a proposal to
eliminate the public relations committee.

Elections Director Paul Garter said the voter
turnout, which was well over 20 percent, was
impressive. Due to the high turnout, the LSA-SG
representatives' spots will not be announced
before Friday.
"Unlike MSA, (our) whole government is
up for election at once," Garter said. "And,
given the high turnout, it will take that long."
LSA Students' Party presidential candidate
James Kovacs said he wished the winners well.
"I think it was a very close race. I just hope
the LSA-SG keeps moving forward," said
Kovacs, who ran on a platform that pledged to

the original allegation, which included
one count of sending threats.
"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 last week.
"In the original indictment, everything
was a tot more vague."
The original charge stemmed from
Baker's use of a University student's
name in a sexually explicit story he
posted on the Internet. The five charges
he now faces do not mention Baker's
story as a separate charge, but use it as

context for the fifth count against him.
While defense attorneys for Baker
say the new charges represent a major
change in the case and are calling the
government's action a form of "cen-
sorship" of private correspondence,
Chadwell said the new charges against
Baker are similar to the previous 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
