SIlly reneged on the agreement. ... He
said he changed his mind."
Steiner said Bollinger agreed with the
ACLU to redisplay the exhibit and hold
a censorship forum. She said Bollinger
then backed out of the agreement.
"These were actions. They were
taken. They speak for themselves. We
don't think these were isolated inci-
dents,' Steiner said. -
Steiner said Bollinger agreed with the
ACLU to redisplay the exhibit and hold
a censorship forum. She said Bollinger
then backed out of the agreement.
He also said the ACLU used the con-
troversy as a focal point to criticize
MacKinnon. An outspoken legal schol-
ar, MacKinnon's fame and infamy are
legendary in national academia. She
was given the "Censor of the Year"
award by the ACLU prior to the contro-
4ersy's development.
"I felt that the ACLU was engaged in
this instance in an effort to intimidate
and silence Catharine MacKinhon,"
Bollinger said.
Bill Dobbs, a Law School student in
the early '80s, said he was "horrified"
when hearing that Bollinger was cho-
sen as president.
"Basically, he is terrible," Dobbs said.
"He is no friend of free expression:'
Dobbs said the art exhibit controversy
shows Bollinger's lack of respect for
speech. He also blasted Bollinger
because he "never uttered a word against
the speech code on campus."
Yet in an Oct. 24 town meeting,
Bollinger said he and former Law Dean
Sandalow stated their concern about a
1987 draft of a code of non-academic
"Former Dean Sandalow and I went
to the person in the administration and
*id, 'We've got to tell you, as your con-
stitutional law people around here, that
you have a major problem and the code

should be withdrawn,"' Bollinger said.
Anne Marie Ellison, an anti-Code
activist who leadsthe Student Rights
Commission on the Michigan Student
Assembly, said she is not worried that
Bollinger would behave as a censor.
"I would hope that he wouldn't sup-
port a resurgency of a speech code, and
I can't imagine that he would," Ellison
Far from being worried, Ellison said
she is hopeful about Bollinger's presi-
dency, because his credentials as a con-
stitutional scholar may lead to a more
student-friendly version of the current
Code of Student Conduct.
Nicholas Kirk, president of the
University's chapter of the College
Republicans, said he is worried that
Bollinger may not be accepting of con-
servative members of the University
"I think Lee Bollinger coming in as
president may bring a chilling effect on
some of the students who have
Republican views on this campus,"
Kirk said.
"We look forward to working with
the new president. If Lee is sincere
about working with all students and
working with all student views, we'd be
happy to have him."
Kirk predicted Bollinger and campus
Republicans will "cross paths before
the year is out."
Bollinger said he attempts to take
divergent viewpoints into consideration
when making decisions.
"I try as hard as I possibly can to
keep an open mind on issues and pro-
mote open debate and discussion,"
Bollinger said.
Sandalow said Bollinger "will listen
carefully to what is said by people on
all sides of issues." Bollinger "will
probably disagree" with conservative
students on some issues, Sandalow
said. "I don't suppose that any president
or any person alive can make everyone

Study: Students are drowsiest drivers

By Jenni Yachnin
Daily Staff Reporter
With Thanksgiving around the corner, plenty of stu-
dents will be making a long drive home - a drive that
can be dangerous if not prepared for correctly.
A recent study published by Three Rivers Group,
which makes the alertness drug Vivarin, concluded
that drivers between the ages of 16 and 25 are respon-
sible for the largest number of accidents caused by
falling asleep at the wheel. The study was conducted
last year by Bradley Hospital's Chronobiology
Laboratory in North Carolina.
The theory supporting the study's findings is that
student drivers don't prepare for long trips properly -
they don't get enough sleep, don't take breaks on the
road and often choose to drive at bad times.
"Basically we wanted to make students aware what a
big problem drowsy driving is among their age group,"
said Jane Friedberg, a spokesperson for Vivarin.
Many students strongly disagreed with the survey,
attributing accidents to lack of experience, not sleep.
"I agree that students can sometimes be a little more
reckless when they drive, but I wouldn't correlate it to
not getting enough sleep" said Kinesiology sopho-
more Michael Melfi. "It's more according to their dri-
ving experience - I wouldn't base it solely on sleep."'
The study also offended many students who said it
underestimates their judgment.
"It does cover a lot of people," said Wendy Golef,
an Engineering sophomore. "But it's not like we're
going to pull an all-nighter and then make the drive

LSA first-year student Karen Hodys said, "That
(study) is the most absurd thing I've heard. Even if
that were true, people of those ages would have
enough common sense to pull off the road and rest
until they could continue."
With Thanksgiving and winter break coming up,
many students will prepare in different ways for their
drives home.
"When I'm done with classes on Tuesday, I'll get
into my car and drive," said Ira
Weintraub, a Kinesiology senior.
Weintraub will drive eight hours u
to Rozkville, Md. "I've done (the
drive) four or five times at the mu i o
same time (of day) and it's never
been a problem." tll
Some students prepare to drive
home with their families.
"Before we leave we call AAA LSA fir
and get a Triptiks," said Hodys,
who is traveling to Burrillville,
R.I., at winter break. "My mom buys drinks to pack in
a cooler in the car."
Students use different methods to stay awake, even
on short drives.
"I pump up the music so I don't fall asleep," said
LSA first-year student Katie Moses. Adding that
although her drive home is only an hour, she said the
trip can be rough.
"I drink lots and lots of coffee. I'll leave around
three; I try to beat traffic," Moses said.
Melfi's drive to Lansing is also only about an hour,


but he said he still enjoys the trip.
"Some people like to see their surroundings' he
said. "Road trips can be fun if you take a friend; it's
someone to talk to, to help keep you awake."
Many students will drive home with friends, not
only for convenience, but for economic reasons.
"We all take turns driving, then we can sleep while
someone else is awake" said Golef, who is driving to
Philadelphia - a 9 1/2-hour trip. "I hate driving
alone, no one talks to you. As
long as there is one person up
I un the and talking to the driver you're
N Jusually good to go.
dN t "A plane ticket is about $250,
gas money is more like $30. It's a
P. big economical difference" Golef
said. "Even the $30 gets split
Katie Moses between three or four people."
t-year student For some, flying is more a
question of distance.
"Lots of people can't or
shouldn't fly because the distance is too short," Moses
There are students who fly home because the dis-
tance is too far to drive.
"(I'm flying) because it's like a 10-hour drive and I
don't like being in a car for a long time - I get rest-
less," said LSA first-year student Sara Klenoff. "It's a
lot easier and it takes a lot less time."
Clarissa Charlier, a Kinesiology sophomore,
laughed at the question of whether she would fly home.
She rubbed her fingers together and said, "Money."
