Okla. bombingtrial
moved to Denver

eral judge moved the Oklahoma City
bombing case to Denver yesterday, say-
ing the need to protect the defendants
from a public thirst for vengeance out-
weighs the desire of the victims' fami-
lies to attend the trial.
Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols
"have been demonized," U.S. District
Judge Richard
Matsch wrote.
"There is so great a r
prejudice against
these two defen-
dants in the state of
Oklahoma that they T
cannot obtain a fair
and impartial trial at
any place fixed by
law,, for holding
court in that state."
He did not set a trial date.
Prosecutors had urged Matsch to move
the trial to Tulsa, about 90 miles from the
bomb site, so that victims' families could
easily attend. But Matsch, chief federal
judge in Denver, sided with the defense,
which wanted the trial held in Denver.
"The interests of the victims in being

able to attend this trial in Oklahoma are
outweighed by the court's obligation to
assure that the trial be conducted with
fundamental fairness and with due re-
gard forall constitutional requirements,"
the judge said.
The April 19 bombing of the Alfred
P. Murrah Federal Building killed 169
people and injured more than 500 in the
deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
"Because this was a crime that oc-
curred in their state, Oklahomans
wanted to know every detail about the
explosion, the investigation, the court
proceedings and, in particular, the vic-
tims," the judge said. "There is a fair
inference that only a guilty verdict with
a death sentence could be considered a
just result in the minds of many."
McVeigh and Nichols could face the
death penalty if convicted of murder
and conspiracy. Victims' families said
it will be hard for some to attend the
trial 500 miles away.
"I plan on going several times during
the trial, but not every day," said Aren
Almon, whose year-old daughter Baylee
died in the bombing and was photo-
graphed in the arms of a firefighter.

Review Panel's jurisdiction over group
behavior and its ability to impose sanc-
tions for group misconduct.
When asked if the University would
check in on chapters, Cianciola said,
"We expect them to do what they say
they are going to do."
The draft also lists other "minimum
expectations" of the UOs. It says the
University expects chapters to maintain a
minimum grade-point average of 2.3.
It also says the UOs "will comply
with all University, State and Local
laws and policies."
According to the statement, the UOs
"mustensure that their respective mem-
ber Chapter's activities positively con-
tribute to University Life."
The draft says the University expects
UOs to "ensure that each of its member
chapters have sufficient external lead-
"(The document) does effectively
change the relationship between chapters
and the IFC," said LSA senior Matthew
Hart, former president of Chi Psi.
Hart said IFC was prompted to draft
a new agreement because of concerns
about the University's influence on the
Greek system. "They kept saying,
'We've got to do it, or the University
won't let us have Rush,"' he said.
Hart said he thinks IFC may have
been influenced by the University ad-
ministration to negotiate the pact. "The
guy who was supposed to be represent-
ing us had a big conflict of interest. He
worked under the auspices of Maureen
Hartford last year," he said, referring to
Engineering senior Jon Roberts, former
IFC president.
Hartford is the vice president for stu-
dent affairs.
Roberts denied Hart's charges that he
was an inappropriate choice to represent
Greek interests. Roberts said he has never
worked directly with Hartford, butthrough
some ofhis leadership roles he has worked
with the Office of Student Affairs. He
said he thought such contact was typical
of any student leader.
Roberts said he and former Panhel
President Laura Shoemaker picked up
last year where previous presidents had
left off.
"Wie made changes and tried to get in
as much input as we could," he said.

"It's not anywhere near perfect."
Roberts said the Greek system wanted
to create the document while they could
make their own draft and work with
University administrators. He said that
wouldn't be the case if Greek associa-
tions waited to draft a relationship state-
ment until a crisis situation arose.
"Other schools have forced docu-
ments down their Greek systems'
throats," Roberts said. "This way we
avoid that. We preserve what we have
right now and get it guaranteed by the
University for the future."
Panhel President Becca Coggins, an
LSA junior said, "We've had a working
relationship with the University (all
Roberts and Cianciola said the docu-
ment is still a draft. Roberts said clari-
fications need to be added to the docu-
Roberts said the document does not
aim to require chapters to have a live-in
RA. He said training will be made avail-
able for houses that want to take advan-
tage of it.
The trained person could be a house
member, probably an upperclass mem-
ber, Roberts said.
He said the document does not make
the University a watchdog for the Greek
system. Roberts said the chapters should
not expect DPS raids on parties or peri-
odic University inspections of chapter
"The University cannot trespass. The
University recognizes IFC and Panhel
as self-governing bodies. Policies are
already in place to monitor house ac-
tivities," Roberts said.
Responding to allegations that the
University had plans to deny rush to
first-year students, Seiler said, "That's
just crazy. No way."
Many colleges and universities have
adopted documents defining their rela-
tionships with Greek associations.
Indiana University Associate Dean
of Students Damon Sims said IU has
served in "an advisory role" for campus
fraternities and sororities since 1969.
Sims said the university practices the
"Indiana Plan." Under the plan, the
university cosigned loans fraternities
and sororities needed to build their
houses. In return, the chapters agreed to
be subject to university rules and regu-
"We don't roam around supervising
them ... very much," Sims said.

Court rejects plea in right-to-die' case
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court rejected yesterday the plea of a
Michigan woman who wants to turn off the medical machinery that keeps her
brain-damaged husband alive. The action appears to give states new authority'to
limit the "right to die."
The court did not issue, a ruling in the dispute. But it did vote to leave intact a
decision by the Michigan Supreme Court that sharply reduced the authority"of
relatives to carry out a person's wishes to die after becoming medically hopel
If that individual had not spelled out the exact circumstances under which lif-
support should be withdrawn, the state court said, the family may not do so, even
if it believes it knows from conversations what the individual wanted.
Under the state court ruling, courts would not have to accept the faniify's
interpretation of the individual's choice without strong evidence that the indi-
vidual had made that choice. That ruling, right-to-die organizations said, requfires
someone to predict some future condition, and then make specific recommenda-
tions on what to do - the kind of explicit choices few people make.
The Supreme Court first ruled in 1990 that the Constitution gives a gravely ill
or dying person a right to have all life support taken away, provided that the
decision was that person's choice. But the court did not settle how the choice
to be conveyed, and did not spell out what role family members could exerc .

Heavy mari'uana use
CHICAGO - People who smoke
marijuana heavily -.at least two out of
every three days - may have trouble
paying attention and performing simple
tasks even a day after going without the
drug, a study found.
Researchers compared 65 college stu-
dents who smoked at least 22 days a
month with 64 similar students who
smoked nine days a month at most.
A day after going without the drug,
the heavy marijuana users performed
significantly worse on tasks that in-
volved sustaining and shifting atten-
The ability to remember things newly
learned did not differ significantly be-
tween the groups, the researchers re-
ported in today's issue of The Journal
of the American Medical Association.
Marijuana's after-effects on think-
ing might result from drug residue in
the brain, from drug withdrawal or from
actual damage to the nervous system,
said the study's authors, Dr. Harrison
Pope Jr. and Deborah Yurgelun-Todd
of Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital

in Belmont, Mass.
Only further study can determine
whether mental impairment from mari-
juana "should be considered a public
health problem;" they said.

In his statement, Duderstadt praised
