SPEAK OUT
Continued from Page 1
Center education and prevention
coordinator, said that although she
was a little disappointed that fewer
people showed up than she anticipat-
ed, she was impressed by the readi-
ness of the speakers.
"Many speakers seemed to be
ready (to speak) and this was the
right time for them," Wright said. "I
am truly amazed by the things I hear
and by what things people have done
to get on the road tQ recovery."
According to SAPAC, domestic
violence is the leading cause of seri-
ous injury to American women.
"It never fails to amaze me that
(sexual assault) keeps hitting so
close to home, even though it's never
happened to me," said LSA junior
Meghan Marsano. "I think this was
an incredible and powerful experi-
ence."

DEBATE

to be a team player who can work in
tandem with the board.
"I would expect that a person who
wants to work as a president can work
with this team," Bishop said. "It's the
University that's important." Bishop
said recent relations between the presi-
dent and the board have been tainted by
"arrogance."
The president must have a vision
"that meshes with the Board of
Regents,' Bishop contended.
The presidential search wasn't the
only topic candidates debated - stu-
dents also raised the issue of rising
tuition costs. Candidates said they rec-
ognized an importance in keeping
tuition low.
"No matter how you strengthen (the
University), no matter how much you
make it better, if you out-price it, it's all
irrelevant," Taylor said.

Bishop echoed Taylor's sentiments.
"There's got to be something in your
budget that you go after first," Bishop
said, noting that tuition should be a last
resort in fund-raising.
Maynard said academically qualified
in-state students should always have
access to the University, regardless of
financial status.
"One of the major issues is paying
for education," Maynard said. "It's
important for students to be able to
access the highest quality of education
on the undergraduate level."
Baker said 24 years of service on the
board have shown him the process used
to set tution rates. He said keeping
tuition low is important to him.
"The problem is that ... costs go up,"
Baker said. "I voted against tution on
several occasions. We try to keep it
down."
With some irony, Baker noted that
MSA seeks to increase its student fees
by 100 percent this term, while the

regents approved a tuition increase of
only 3 percent last July.
MSA President Fiona Rose said she
was pleased by the quality of discussion
at last night's meeting.
"It was refreshing to hear a regent
and potential regents take students'
concerns so seriously," Rose said. "I
actually give the regents a lot of credit
for reaching out to students."
Though the turnout of 25 left much
of the Vandenberg Room empty, Rose
said she was pleased with the number
of students in attendance.
"I'm glad to see students participate,
even during midterms," she said.
LSA senior Paul Wilhelm said all of
the candidates have solid credentials.
"They all seem like they have a
good vision for the University as a
whole," Wilhelm said. Wilhelm said he
attended because he was concerned
"with issues of morality" and what the
candidates' "vision was for the
University."

Dems release pre-election funds records
WASHINGTON - Under intense pressure to give an accounting ofits pre-tlec
tion fund-raising, the Democratic National Committee released a list of contribu
tors and expenses yesterday - but not the full report normally filed by political
parties.
DNC General Chairman Christopher Dodd said his staff would "work cont-
ously" to file a complete report with the'Federal Election Commission "as soo
possible."
DNC spokesperson Amy Weiss Tobe said the full report would be submitted to
the FEC on the proper forms by the end of this week, before Election Day.
The DNC's initial decision not to file a pre-election report, which was actually
due last Thursday, was widely criticized by Republicans and independent advo-
cates of campaign finance reform.
Republican National Committee Chairman Haley Barbour accused the DNC of
"blatantly flouting the law."
"The purpose of this law is that the public has a right to know before the elec-
tion," Barbour said at a news conference.
Dodd maintained the DNC was not legally required to file the report imm#
ately since the party didn't spend any money on President Clinton or other can-
paigns during the Oct. 1-15 period the report covers.

RESEARCH
Continued from Page 1
Janet Lee, a fourth-year Medical stu-
dent agreed, and said research integrity
lies in the individual student.
"It depends on what kind of ethics
you have,' she said.
Prof. Greg Gibson, who teaches the
course "Genetics in Society," pointed to

the situation as science showing one of
its greatest strengths.
"The restrictions are in place in a sci-
entific program to find false results.
Results are always replicated," he said.
Therefore, it is impossible to get away
with falsified research, Gibson said.
NIH sources said the accused scien-
tist worked for Collins at the
University, followed Collins to the NIH

and then returned to the University to
receive his doctorate.
The existence of the Collins letter
was first revealed yesterday in a story in
the Chicago Tribune. The letter was
released to The Associated Press only in
response to a Freedom of Information
Act application.
Senior researchers at the NIH said
the false information does not affect the
basic findings that DNA breakage leads
to creation of an abnormal protein that
is related to leukemia.
"Collins is an exceptional guy. It is a
tragedy these things are happening to
him," said Dr. Robert Adelstein of NIH,
who co-authored one of the studies.
"He is being very honest about it."
In his letter, Collins said the junior
scientist participated in research used in
six papers published in some of the top
scientific journals.
"Five published manuscripts contain
data which we now believe are not
authentic;' Collins said in the letter. A
sixth paper was not affected, he said.
The fabrications were discovered
when a reviewer, analyzing a seventh
manuscript, found a flaw that Collins
said "suggested intentional deception."

research materials and doctoral disser-
tation of the junior scientist revealed
fabrications and Collins said the
researcher "eventually confessed" to
the falsehoods.
"I am sure you must share a sense of
shock and outrage at these events,"
Collins wrote. He added that some may
wonder if he was paying sufficient
attention to the junior scientist's
research.
"I had no evidence, in frequent inter-
actions with the individual over the
course of three years, to question his
honesty," he said.
The letter said that science cannot
operate in an atmosphere of suspicion
and that "those rare instances of dis-
honesty" are usually revealed through
the normal process of science.
The papers being retracted were pub-
lished in the Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences, in
Molecular and Cellular Biology and in
Genomics. Collins said there is a partial
retraction of another PNAS paper and
of some data from a paper in Genes,
Chromosomes & Cancer.

Yankees receive
'ticker-tape' parade
NEW YORK - A wildly enthusias-
tic crowd officially estimated at 3.5
million blanketed lower Manhattan yes-
terday to shower the world champion
New York Yankees with a blizzard of
paper that Mayor Rudolph Giuliani
exuberantly pronounced "the biggest
and grandest parade ever,"
As throngs of people - stock bro-
kers, school kids and other Yankee
enthusiasts who've waited through an
18-year championship drought for this
moment - cheered them on, the 1996
Yankees, who beat the Atlanta Braves
four games to two in the World Series
that ended here Saturday night, took
their turn waving from floats as they
rode up Broadway to city hall.
"I've never seen a ticker-tape parade
like this one, and I've been in a few of
them," said Joe DiMaggio, the last of
the mythic super heroes from the era,
extending from the 1920s into the
1970s, when the Yankees effectively
owned the franchise on major-league
baseball championships.

The route has been known as "the
canyon of heroes" since early in the
century when workers in the skyscraper
towers of the surrounding financial dis-
trict began the tradition of greeting 4iig-
nitaries being honored at city hall. by
tossing stock-market ticker tape.f
their office windows.
Experts: less than
55% of U.S. will vote
WASHINGTON - Experts- -say
less than 55 percent of eligible
Americans will vote this electioAn alnd
they have some theories on what t
says about the world's most celeb
- and maybe its most casual,-
democracy.
A century ago, 80 percent of
Americans routinely voted. But in
the last 30 years, turnout has gone
down. From 64 percent in 160,
when John F Kennedy was elected,
it slid to just barely above 50 perent
in 1988 before squiggling up to:5.5.2
percent four years ago.

Apartment building
coliaspe tra.ps 2
CAIRO, Egypt - For 36 hours,
Samantha Miksche was entombed in
the darkness of a collapsed 12-story
apartment building. The Los Angeles
teen-ager heard the cries of other sur-
vivors, the barking of search dogs and
the rumble of equipment boring
through the ruins.
Yesterday, exhausted rescue workers
pulled her and a friend from the rubble
-bruised and bleeding, but alive.
"I'm very tired," said Miksche, a 17-
year-old Australian citizen who lives in
Los Angeles.
Her mother was among dozens of
people still missing as the desperate
search for survivors entered its third
day.
Hundreds of people waited near the
wreckage, some demanding justice and
others begging for their trapped friends
and relatives to somehow emerge from
the rubble.
"Have mercy on us!" one man shout-
ed.

over the site, where a worker spayed
disinfectant. Ten teen-agers sat in a cir-
cle, each reading from the Koran. At
times, some would cry or hug a com-
panion, waiting for news about tra i
relatives or friends.

cartels and other criminal gangs.
The bill, approved late Monday night
by the House of Deputies, legalizes
government wiretaps and witness
secrecy for the first time. It allows
undercover operations, creates a wit-
ness-protection program similar to that
in the United States and increases
penalties for criminal conspiracies,
such as international drug trafficki
