LAWSUIT
Continued from Page1A
Co-chair of the Michigan
Federation of College Democrats
Sara Deneweth an SNRE sopho-
more, said that in order to receive
a full education, students should
learn among many different peo-
pie.
"Part of getting a good educa-
tion is a diverse community,"
Deneweth said. "I am outraged at
the lawsuit.:
Deneweth noted that athletes
and children of alumni also get
preference in admissions deci-

sions.
Hillson, however, said that
other types of preferences are
justified.
"Athletes are being rewarded
for their talent and hard work," he
said. "Making alumni happy by
accepting their children ensures a
strong alumni network and mon-
etary donations.
"Rewarding hard work and
ensuring the financial health of
the University so that it can con-
tinue to allow access to many
seem like just and proper goals to
me.'
Public Health graduate student

Amy Pickard said that because
racial inequality still exists, affir-
mative action is still necessary.
"Affirmative action was estab-
lished for a reason. People of dif-
ferent races in our society are not
treated equally and do not have
the same opportunities," she said.
"Until equality of both genders
of all races permeates every
niche in our society, we cannot
afford to lose programs like affir-
mative action that provide oppor-
tunity for many who would oth-
erwise have little or no way to
establish a productive life for
themselves."

experienced success.
"The issue is one of the highest-volume-selling college
issues of all time," Espy said, noting that the models ben-
efit from the experience. "The girls are all individuals, and
they have all had a good time."
The store's proprietor Gus Georges said Friday's crowd
met his high expectations.
"I feel very proud to have Playboy here," Georges said.
"Playboy is a very respectable magazine."
LSA senior Jeff Chmielewski said he was looking for-
ward to having a personal autograph.
"I am currently single. That's why I am here," said
Chmielewski, who had Chmiel sign his copy "thanks for
breakfast." "It's a great excuse to miss class."
Friday's event was missing one thing - protesters.
LSA senior Michael McCarrom said there shouldn't be
negative reactions to the magazine.
"This is going to be the highlight of the semester,"
McCarrom said.
Hiatt said she has been recognized by fellow students
during everyday campus life.

Vacation over, Clinton returns to politics
WASHINGTON - After three nearly uninterrupted weeks at play on
Martha's Vineyard, President Clinton returned to the White House yesterday
with a long to-do list. At the very top: Salvage his centerpiece plan for educa-
tion standards and testing.
The president also hoped, through an ambitious fall game plan, to control the
political agenda on the big issues of tobacco, free trade and global warmis
But with opposition building on those issues, time was already running out.
Clinton has "really had a chance to relax and spend some time thinking and
recharging his batteries, so I think he's looking forward to getting back to
work," spokesperson Joe Lockhart said before the president and his family
departed their Massachusetts island haven yesterday. "We expect progress on a
number of issues."
Still, looming over the work ahead was the expectation among many White
House officials that Clinton would be distracted by the departure of daughter
Chelsea for Stanford University later this month.
One administration official cited a fall planning memo sent in August from
the White House to the heads of all federal agencies, encouraging them to ke
an eye out for official opportunities for the president to travel to northJ
California, near Stanford.

Small plane crashes
m Rhode Island
LINCOLN, R.I. - A single-engine
plane carrying skydivers crashed dur-
ing takeoff, killing five people and crit-
ically injuring one other Saturday.
The Cessna Skylane Model 182
reached about 200 feet off the
ground before it tilted left about 90
degrees and crashed into trees by
the runway, said John Roan, a flight
instructor at the North Central State
Airport.
"The engine was full throttle, then all
of a sudden I didn't hear anything. The
engine just quit. It died," said Chris
Rossi, an airport maintenance worker
who saw the crash.
Four people were declared dead
shortly after the 5 p.m. crash, state
police said. Two men in their 20s were
flown to Rhode Island Hospital for
treatment, hospital spokesperson Rick
Piester said.
A fifth victim died later Saturday at
the hospital. The surviving passenger
was in critical condition late Saturday.

Gas from a ruptured fuel tank leaked
from the plane, Roan said. Several fire-
fighters were hurt in two explosions at
the scene, but the injuries were not.seti-
ous.
Record number of
Cuban cigars seize!
SAN DIEGO -- The sweetest for-
bidden fruit at the border nowadays is
not white, powdery or from
Colombia.
And it may not seem like the biggest
threat to the Western world. But U.S.
Customs Service officials are all fired
up about a recent surge of the smuggling
of Cuban cigars into San Diego. j
In recent weeks, there have been
back-to-back record seizures at the San
Diego border, netting a cache of nearly
5,000 cigars with an estimated value of
$283,500 on the black market, -San
Diego customs spokesperson Bobbie
Cassidy said.
"It's big money," said Rudy
Camacho, top U.S. Customs administra-
tor in San Diego.

Forner Zairian
leader Seko dies
PARIS - Mobutu Sese Seko, the
Zairian leader toppled in May after
nearly 32 years of despotic rule that
left his country in shambles, has died
in Rabat, Morocco, Radio France
Info reported early today. He was 66.
Mobutu had been suffering from
prostate cancer. There was no immedi-
ate word on the cause of death.
The billionaire leader fled Zaire on
May 16, surrendering power to rebels
led by Laurent Kabila. Mobutu was
accompanied by an entourage of hun-
dreds to Togo and then to the north
African nation of Morocco.
Mobutu became a symbol of excess
during his nearly 32-year reign strewn
with broken promises and bloody
revolts.
Mobutu left his country of 45 million
in economic and political shambles.
Rebels who began fighting to topple him
last Septenber finally deposed him after
a nearly eight-month offensive across the
vast Central African nation.
Mobutu was out of Zaire during most
of the rebel advance, in his palatial
homes in Switzerland and the south of

France, recovering from cancer
surgery.
He stunned people by leaving the
country again May 7 for a summit in
neighboring Gabon when the reb
claimed to be less than 40 miles froM
the capital.

Jordan's King Hussein and Palestinian
Authority President Yasser Arafat issu
a statement calling on Israel to refra
from activities that undermine "the spir-
it of peace."
