The situation at Mary Markley Hall,
with 94 percent of its residents in the
entering class, was chaotic when resi-
dents tried to park.
"People were parked everywhere -
in the handicapped spots, on the grass,
and on the sidewalk," said Jason Perla,
an LSA first-year student.
Sheryl Stevenson, East Quad's stu-
dent coordinator, said residents
moved in with a minimum of fuss.
"We had the usual number of stu-
dents not knowing their way around,"
she said.

undergraduate education, diversity,
public access to education and finan-
cial need of Michigan residents,"
Machen said. "We consider this the
minimum budget we can accept for
quality commitment at this University."
Michigan Student Assembly
President Fiona Rose endorsed
Machen's recommendation.
She said she supported the allocation
of funds in a way that allows for the
maintenance of the current quality of
University programs, while preventing
degradation of services. "It makes sense
educationally and fiscally," Rose said.
Machen said this year's low increase
reflects lower inflation rates and the
increase in state funding. He said there
is no proposed increase for any of the
academic fees.
Machen said tuition fees must be
raised each year to accommodate the
costs that also rise each year. He said
higher operating costs and building
construction costs contribute to the
need for higher tuition.
In addition to the small tuition
increase, the allocation to financial aid
programs for students increased by 9
percent in the general fund budget.
Machen said the increased financial
aid allocation will be distributed as a
total student support program, aiding
both undergraduate and graduate stu-
dents, and going to both merit- and
need-based aid programs.
"The increase in financial aid is a
recognition of the problems students
are having in funding education,"
Machen said. "We want to ensure all
Michigan residents have adequate
financial aid."'

Clinton and other administration
officials spent the day in intense tele-
phone and personal conversations with
U.S. allies. But the results of their
labors were mixed, according to reports
from the Middle East and Europe.
British and Saudi officials were
reported to have given a green light for
U.S. military action. The Saudi acquies-
cence was seen as particularly important,
since a U.S.-European air wing enforc-
ing the "no-fly" zone over southern Iraq
territory is based on Saudi soil and could
play a role in a retaliatory attack.
The aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson
also has taken position in the northern
Persian Gulf along with several cruisers
and destroyers armed with Tomahawk
cruise missiles. On the other side of
Iraq, U.S. planes are based at Incirlik,
Turkey. A second carrier, the USS
Enterprise, is standing by in the eastern
Mediterranean, U.S. officials said. Over
the weekend the Air Force also moved
four B-52 bombers to Guam.
But Jordan's King Hussein told Gen.
John Shalikashvili, chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, in Aqaba that out-
siders should not meddle in raqgs busi-
ness, according to Jordan's state-run
Petra news agency. Officials in France
and Russia, both traditional defenders
of Iraqi sovereignty, also were reported
to be reluctant to join any allied mili-
tary action on Iraq.

Banks crack down
on check fraud
It might seem like fighting a tank
with a pea shooter, but bankers across
the country are trying to solve an
$800 million problem with a $2.50
In Texas, Nevada, Arizona and more
than a dozen other states, bankers are
fighting check fraud by equipping
tellers with ink pads so they can affix
the thumbprint of customers who aren't
regular patrons of the bank to the backs
of checks they cash.
The idea has drawn remarkable inter-
est because banks are losing millions
each year to organized crime and gang
members who steal checks or duplicate
payroll checks and then cash them.
These crimes cost banks $815 mil-
lion in 1993 alone, more than 12 times
what they lost in robberies, according to
the latest American Bankers
Association statistics.
"This is a war for us," said Jerome
Evans, executive vice president with
First National Bank of Maryland.
Banks aren't the only ones who pay

TWA crash probe losing steam

WASHINGTON - Crash investigators' initial optimism is waning that wreck-
age from TWA Flight 800 will yield definitive proof of what downed the Boeing
747, and law enforcement officials now believe that if a bomb or missile destroyed
the plane a case may have to be built without any conclusive physical evidence of
blast damage.
After six weeks of tests, computer simulations and a partial reconstruction of t
jumbo jetliner, probers have been able to reach just one definitive conclusion:
location of the blast that knocked the plane out of the sky.
About 70 percent of the aircraft has been recovered from the ocean floor off
Long Island so far, mostly from a few debris mounds that investigators had hoped
would yield the strongest clues. Those examining the wreckage have found two
tiny traces of explosive material, but say they are inconclusive. What continues to
elude them are signs of metal damage indicative of a bomb or missile blast, or actu
al bomb parts.
The case's chief law enforcement official said in an interview last week that
criminal investigators may have to wait for the discovery of additional samples of
explosive residue and rely on surveillance, interviews and other intelligence work
before they can declare the July 17 downing of Flight 800, in which 230 peo4
died, a criminal act.

for check fraud. Consumers do too -
in the form of higher fees charged by
banks, said William Gearin, head of
Financial Institution Security
Consulting Service, a Worcester, Mass.,r
consulting company.
"This is a serious problem, and it s
going to get worse'" he said. "Wha
really driving the statistics upward is
counterfeit checks."
New links made in
Alzheimer's disease
A close new look into blood chem
istry, brain cells and the damage done
by oxygen may help explain why heree -
ity is so important in Alzheimer's d-
ease, a research team in New yoa
reported yesterday.
In studies of a blood protein called
"apoE" the Rockefeller University team
found that in addition to its known role
in moving cholesterol around, apoL
plays an unexpected role in shielding
cells from chemical damage.
Different formsof apoE may explaia
why some get Alzheimer's early in life

Communist party
receives setback
MOSCOW -The governor appoint-
ed by President Boris Yeltsin in the
"red-belt" region of Saratov crushed his
Communist challenger in the first of 52
autumn elections for control of Russia's
provincial heartland, complete returns
showed yesterday,
The lopsided outcome of Sunday's
closely watched election spelled trouble
for the Communists' goal of rebound-
ing from defeat in the July presidential
vote by gaining power at the grass
Even more humiliating for the
Communists, the defeat came in a place
they counted as theirs. Saratov, a large-
ly rural region straddling the Volga
River 420 miles southeast of Moscow,
had given big pluralities last December
to Communists now in Parliament and
to Communist Party leader Gennady
Zyuganov in the race against Yeltsin.
Presidential advisers hailed the result
as a victory not only for an energetic,
can-do reformer but for a master
Kremlin strategy to be adapted for

Yeltsin-backed incumbents in the rac s
to come. "This election is a ... showc ..e
... of political cooperation between tie
regions and the center," said Kreml
strategist Vyacheslav Nikonov.
