would get tired writing nigger," said
Law third-year student Travis
Richardson.
However, Law second-year student
Lauren Francis emphasized that increas-
ing the number of minority faculty is
not enough, and that the school needs
"faculty members of color with con-
sciences."
At the conclusion of the meeting,
Lehman said, "I don't agree with ev-
erything that's been said, but I agree
with some things."
Although students said the meeting
was a welcome opportunity for stu-
dents to express viewpoints, some ques-
tioned the meeting's ability to inspire
change.
"I get tired of going to forums like
this," said Law second-year student
Lashawn Gillon. "I honestly don't
think anything will be done after this
forum."
But Law first-year student Ann
Jochnick called the meeting "a good
beginning."

"I think that this was a good start,"
she said. "But what we need is concrete,
specific change."
Jones said he felt the meeting was
beneficial.
"I thought it was an excellent forum
forstudentsto express their viewpoints,"
he said.
At the entrance to Hutchins Hall,
the Ad Hoc Student Committee of
Issues of Race, Gender and Sexuality
was collecting signatures on a letter
to Jones expressing its disappoint-
ment and anger over the recent inci-
dent.
"Your presence and perspective make
the University of Michigan Law School
a better place. We, as a group of con-
cerned students, support you as we con-
tinue to challenge the University of
Michigan Law School to become an
institution in which everyone is treated
with respect and dignity," the letter
reads.
More than 250 students have signed
the letter.
"It's gratifying and reassuring to
receive that type of comment from the
Law School," Jones said ofthe group's
letter.

IRS

business income tax," Vice President for
University Relations Walter Harrison said.
"They said those areas were not part of
our educational mission."
But Harrison said the University care-
fully distinguishes activities that should
be considered tax-exempt and that it
did not owe the IRS any money.
"We were confident all along we had
been declaring these things correctly,"
Harrison said. "So we are very pleased
to have this matter settled."
Harrison said the University appealed
the case on grounds that the facilities
were related to the University's educa-
tional mission.
"We said the areas were in fact there
primarily for the benefit of students,
faculty and staff," Harrison said. "The
appeals office agreed with us."
The approximate $125,000 the Uni-
versity is required to pay the IRS stems
from scoreboard advertising income.
The University will pay an additional
$5,100 in taxes for 1989, no additional
amount for 1990, and $119, 266 for
1991.

The assessment came on the heels of
a 1992 IRS audit that was part of a
larger look at higher education institu-
tions, which included investigations of
more than 15 schools.
University officials negotiated
Michigan's audit findings for about
three months in the fall of 1994, but
gave up in December 1994 when dis-
cussions came to a standstill.
Since the negotiations were stalled,
Harrison said the University requested
that the IRS issue a 90-day letter, a state-
ment charging the University for back
taxes. The 90 days refers to the amount of
time the University had to either pay the
taxes or appeal. "That gave us the chance
to take it to tax court," Harrison said.
Harrison added he is unsure how
many universities disagreed with the
IRS audits, but said Michigan State and
Ohio State settled without contesting.
"Unlike other major universities, we
felt strongly enough about our position
that we went to court," Duderstadt said.
"Many' of the other universities should
have contested the IRS on this issue.
Harrison said the settlement agree-
ment may have implications for other
institutions.

Court to hear abortion buffer-zone case
WASHINGTON - Stepping back into the abortion fray, the Supreme Court
announced yesterday it would clarify how far judges can go in keeping raucous
protesters away from health clinics that perform abortions.
The case accepted yesterday arose from protests in Buffalo and Rochester, N.Y.
It concerns a court order that created a 15-foot buffer zone around abortion clinic
entrances, as well as around vehicles entering clinic driveways and patients
entering or leaving the clinics. The order also permitted only two protesters
come within 15 feet of a patient.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the order, saying the buffer zones
were narrowly tailored to protect the clinics and patients: The Second Circuit stressed
the importance of keeping protesters at a distance. Referring to the clamor and'
intimidation caused by abortion foes, the lower court said,;"These activities, on some
occaisions, have so intimidated and confused patients approachingthe clinics that they
have left the areas, causing them to suffer a delay in obtaining medical care."
But two abortion opponents affiliated with Project Rescue, the Rev. Paul Schenck'
and Dwight Saunders, asserted in their petition to the Supreme Court that the appeals
court attacked the core of the First Amendment: "the protection of unpopular and
despised speech in the traditional public forum of public sidewalks and streets."

Salvi convicted of
clinic slayings
BOSTON-John Salvi III,thetroubled
young man who went on a shooting ram-
page at two suburban abortion clinics,
was found guilty ofmurderyesterday and
sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Despite his lawyers' attempts to prove
him insane, Salvi, 24, was convicted of
all charges against him: two counts of
first-degree murder and five counts of
armed assault with intent to murder, all
arising from his Dec. 20, 1994, attack
on the two clinics. He was quickly taken
to state prison.
The attack was the worst violence
against an abortion clinic in U.S. his-
tory and capped a decade of assaults on
the clinics and their staff across the
country.
Cries of anguish were heard in court
from the families of the victims -
Shannon Lowney, 25, and Lee Ann
Nichols, 38. Their parents, brothers,
sisters, fiancees and friends wept, as
they have many times during trial.
Salvi shot the two women and
wounded five other people during his

attack on the two clinics in the Boston
suburb of Brookline. Witnesses testi-
fied during the trial that he had shouted,
"This is what you get! You should pray
the rosary," as he fired 10 bullets into
Nichols. Salvi was arrested the next
day in Norfolk, Va., after he began
shooting at an abortion clinic there.
Cigarette company
manipulates nicotine
WASHINGTON - Tobacco giant
Philip Morris manipulates nicotine lev-
els in cigarettes to fine-tune the drug's
"impact"on smokers, according to three
new affidavits from two former scien-
tists and a production official at the
company made public yesterday by the
Food and Drug Administration.
"Nicotine levels were routinely h
geted and adjusted by Philip Morris,
stated Ian Uydess, a former Philip Morris
research scientist who said the company
used tobacco blending and other tech-
nologies to maintain nicotine levels.
Philip Morris issued a statement late
yesterday that it had just received the
documents and would not comment fully
until it had "thoroughly reviewed" them.

Scotland begins
burying its dead
DUNBLANE, Scotland-They were
baptized together. They went to school
together, and squirmed in churchtogether.
Yesterday, Emma Crozier and Joanna
Ross, both 5, were buried together, five
days after gunman Thomas Hamilton
killed the pair, 14 other classmates,
their teacher and then himself in
Britain's worst modern-day massacre.
"I recall on Sundays that Emma and
Joanna would sit together at the front
pew, bobbing around and chatting," the
Rev. William Gilmour said at the fu-
neral, attended by a crowd of 800 that
spilled over into the graveyard andpark-
ing lot of the Episcopal church in Bridge
on Allan, near Dunblane.
"The two constant friends were cut
down as innocent 5-year-olds in the
evil terror which struck their primary
school last Wednesday, which event
will haunt their parents and us in this
community well into the future.
"Each family has lost one whom her
parents refer to as their 'wee angel' and
our human parental hearts go out to them

today in love," Gilmour told mourners.
"How are theseparents and theirrela-
tives going to cope without their trea-
sures being beside them at home?
"Only by our combined prayers,
outheld compassion and practical sup-
port in the months ahead."
Croats, Serbs to tun
in war criminals

dents of Serbia and Croatia agreed to

Following more than eight hours of
meetings with Secretary of State War-
ren Christopher, Presidents Slobodan
Milosevic of Serbiaand Franjo Tudjman
of Croatia and Vice President EjupW
Ganic of Bosnia renewed their commit-
ment to a multi-ethnic Bosnia,
