BOLLINGER
Continued from Page i
Bollinger will move into the president's
residence on South University Avenue.
The final plans for Bollinger's inau-
guration are also undetermined. "We're
deciding between late in the winter
term or in the fall," Harrison said. At
the very least, the inaugural season will
consist of a formal ceremony, probably
in Hill Auditorium, and an open cele-
bration for members of the University
community, Harrison said.
"I think Lee feels quite strongly that
the inauguration will be held while stu-
dents are here," Harrison said.
Regent-elect Olivia Maynard (D-
Plint) said she is "pleasantly surprised"
that Bollinger's presidency is slated to
begin in February.
Maynard will likely spend most - if
not all - of her eight-year term work-

ing with Bollinger But she said it has
not been frustrating to watch from the
sidelines while the first stages of his
presidency are organized.
"I feel very positive about him," said
Maynard, whose term will begin in
January. "I think it will be exciting for
the future of the University."
Students will benefit from Bollinger's
quick transition, said Michigan Student
Assembly President Fiona Rose.
"What this University needs is a stable
presidency as soon as possible'" Rose
said. "He's open-minded, and he has a
lot of great ideas for Michigan."
Stavis said the Dartmouth communi-
ty has known Bollinger could be tapped
for a presidency at almost any time.
"Lee Bollinger is an eminent scholar
and a talented administrator" Stavis
said. "With all eminent scholars and tal-
ented administrators, one knows that
they're all in demand."

AIDS.
Continued from Page 1.
AIDS mortality rates, the official
newspaper called for intensified con-
dom promotion campaigns. It said
more men were using condoms after a
nationwide anti-AIDS campaign began
several years ago.
To call attention to AIDS among
American Indians, a sculpture was
shrouded in black nylon outside
Phoenix's Heard Museum, renowned
for its collection of Indian art.
AIDS cases among Native
Americans in the United States have
doubled in three years, to 1,439 this
year.
European activists warned against
complacency.
In Paris, several hundred AIDS
activists marched with signs reading,
"AIDS: The Epidemic Isn't Over" and
"Zero Equals the Number of AIDS
Survivors."
In Rome, two taxi companies distrib-
uted AIDS information leaflets to pas-
sengers, and some players in Italy's top
soccer league wore red bows on their
uniforms.

HOLIDAY
Continued from Page 1
Judon guessed that out of the rough-
ly 600 residents in her hall, about 50
stayed for Thanksgiving.
"1 was glad to be with my friends,
but I would have rather been home,"
Judon said.
Judon also said she did not have to
stay, but by covering her RA duties over
Thanksgiving, she will have a better
chance of going away for Spring Break.
Some University faculty members
said they also remained in Ann Arbor
for Thanksgiving.
Psychiatry and Social Work Prof.
Edith Gomberg said she spent
Thanksgiving Day with some of her
family and a few of her colleagues.
"We do it sort of potluck;" Gomberg
said. "Everybody is responsible for a
different dish."
Gomberg said she and her friends
take turns having dinner at each other's
homes and she is thankful for the time
they have together.
"I have spent Thanksgiving alone
and, let me tell you, family and friends
are better,' Gomberg said.

Southern twister kills 3, uproots trees.
SIMSBORO, La. - More than 100 old oak trees were strewn amid the wreck-
age of homes yesterday along the path of a tornado that ripped through town. Three
people were killed.
The storm Saturday night destroyed six homes and damaged 49, while over-
turning trucks on a nearby highway and blowing a wall off a factory.
Tornadoes also skipped across parts of Mississippi, Alabama and the Florio
Panhandle, causing scattered damage and injuries.
Emergency teams and volunteers helped this northern Louisiana community
about 45 miles east of Shreveport clean up yesterday. Power was restored to most
homes by morning.
"l'm just glad we didn't die" said 8-year-old Sara Solomon. She and herY10-
year-old sister, Kasey, huddled on the hallway floor of their home when the storm
hit.
"A tree fell on our house. We started crying because we were so scared," Sara
said.
Some of the fallen oak trees had been standing for generations. One that wis 5
feet in diameter crushed the cab of a parked pickup truck, killing two men w
were inside installing a radio. A man sitting between them survived with r17
minor injuries.

Su reme Court to
de ate Brady Act
WASHINGTON - For seven years,
a wheelchair-bound James S. Brady
and his wife, Sarah, fought for passage
of national legislation to regulate the
sale of handguns. They were unrelent-
ing advocates, pitted against the lob-
byists of the National Rifle
Association.
They watched a bill requiring buyer-
background checks die, get revived,
cause a congressional standoff and
finally, in late 1993, pass both houses to
become the first major gun-control law
in a quarter century.
The Brady Act was immediately
challenged by local sheriffs, who must
perform the background checks, as an
unconstitutional infringement on their
power.
Now, the most controversial gun-
control bill of the era has reached the
Supreme Court, just as the justices are
questioning whether Congress is
imposing too much of its will on local
authorities. Oral arguments on the case
are set for tomorrow.

"The American people won a great
victory over the"gun lobby 2 1/2years
ago," Brady said at a recent news con-
ference. "I hope, and trust, that the
high court will not mess with .suc-
cess."
Bacteria vaccine
created for infants
WASHINGTON - A Harvard
physician has developed a vaccine that
one day could protect thousands, of
babies from a potentially deadly infec-
tion that mothers now try to avoid by
taking powerful antibiotics during
childbirth.
The threat is group B streptooce.
a bacterium that lurks harmlessly in
many women's bodies but that can be
fatal or brain-damaging if passed to
infants in the birth canal.
The National Institutes of Health
plans to immunize some pregnant
women late next year in studies
designed to prove the vaccine is safe
enough - and works well enough -to
administer to millions of women.

Mother Teresa in
critical condition
CALCUTTA, India -- Mother Teresa
was in critical condition yesterday,
weakened.by lung and kidney problems
that slowed her recovery from surgery to
clear blocked coronary arteries.
The 86-year-old nun remains "con-
scious and cheerful," Calcutta's B.M.
Birla Heart Research Center said in a
statement. Doctors reprogrammed a
pacemaker implanted in 1989 but
because of her worsening condition
postponed planned drug treatment to
correct her irregular heartbeat.
At her Missionaries of Charity home,
the West Bengal state minister led
Catholic nuns and Hindus, Muslims,
Sikhs and Buddhists in prayers for her
recovery.
The 1979 Nobel Peace Prize winner
suffered a mild heart attack on Nov. 22,
and has been hospitalized ever since. It
is her fourth hospitalization this year
alone - the second for heart problems.
Two others were for injuries from falls.
Doctors performed an angioplasty

Friday to remove blockages from two
arteries. The procedure went so well
that doctors thought they would be able
to begin drug treatment yesterday for an
irregular heartbeat.
Peace force faces
difficulties in Zaire
GOMA, Zaire --As a multinational
peace force prepares to send a small team
into eastern Zaire to lay the groundwork
for a Rwandan-refugee rescue mission, it
faces the predicament of how safely
extricate the refugees who are at W
moving front line of a mountain war.
The roughly 200,000 Rwandan Hutu
refugees believed to be in the fores.ted
mountains about 17 miles west of here
include thousands of former Rwandan
soldiers and militiamen.
Those forces control two large
refugee groups here in North Kivu
Province and are driving them west-
ward, away from the border.
