Sexhibit to
open at U' museums

By Micah Peitz
For the Daily
plitting its time between two
D~iversity museums, a 135-artifact
exhibit about the ancient Galilee region
will be displayed in Ann Arbor through
the end of the semester
The exhibit, titled "Sepphoris in
Galilee: Crosscurrents of Culture" brings
to campus artifacts from the archaeologi-
cal site Sepphoris (which is named
Zippori in Hebrew) and the surrounding
Galilee region in northern Israel.
"So far we have had a very good
*onse," said Kelsey Museum Program
Assistant Todd Gerring. "We have had
many tours for grade school and high
school groups, as well as many visitors in
general since, this is a bigger event.'
Due to the size of the collection, the
University's Kelsey Museum of
Archaeology and the Museum of Art
have collaborated to house the entire
"This is the first time the art museum
*Kelsey have collaborated on some-
thing," Gerring said. "We have realized
how different the two museums operate,
but overall it has worked out very nicely"
Of the roughly 135 artifacts, more
than 80 are at the Museum of Art.
"Kelsey holds more of the daily-life
artifacts and household items, while the
art museum contains sections on the

religions of the time," Gerring said.
The Museum of Art also contains
more interactive portions of the exhibit
such as the "Zippori Explorer" a multi-
media presentation of the exhibit that
reconstructs the buildings of Zippori on
the computer screen, as well as a station
where visitors can make their own
mosaic. The exhibit itself includes some
elaborate mosaics, and the station
allows the visitor to use a variety of col-
orful magnets to show off his or her
own creative talents.
The University has a special tie to the
exhibit, since the scientific excavation
of Zippori was begun by a team led by
University Prof. Leroy Waterman in
"I thought it was very interesting,"
said museum visitor Kyle Miller. "It
made sense of what was happening at
that time by showing what exactly was
around there."
Gerring said one of the most popular
items is a mosaic depicting a man in
hunting garb carrying a spear.
"Some of my favorite parts of the
exhibit were the hunter mosaic, the reli-
gious artifacts and the station where I
could construct my own mosaic," said
LSA first-year student Rachel Weiss.
"Overall, it was very interesting to see
how the variety of cultures coexisted in
this place."

discussed questions and concerns about
the service requirements at a Greek
Activities Review Panel mediation. All
of the sanctioned fraternities have begun
doing their various service activities.
"Some residence hall dining services
are under-staffed," Shah said. "The fra-
ternities are scheduled in various times
where they're needed."
Tanner suggested fraternities can

cerned that minorities, including
Native Americans, are currently
underrepresented in mathematical
However, while Federbush said
problems with minority representa-
tion continue to persist on the nation-
al level, he defended minority repre-
sentation in University mathematical
"In Michigan, we have done really
well with women students in particular,"
Federbush said.
There are a variety of reasons for the
lack of Native Americans in mathemat-
ics nationally, Megginson said. Native
American families' annual income is
usually less than average and therefore
many drop out of school in order to help
bring in more money to their household,
Megginson said.
Megginson said he knows what it is
like to experience some of the other
problems faced daily by minorities
and has seen first-hand the low per-
centage of Native Americans in math-
Megginson, part Lakota Indian, was
the only Native American to attend his

Lauren Talalay, associate curator at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, shows an
exhibit featuring the Roman period of Ancient Palestine yesterday.

During the Roman period, Zippori
was a thriving city where Jews, pagans
and later Christians co-existed in rela-
tive harmony.
Another aspect of the exhibit for stu-
dents is a two credit mini-course offered
in the Residential College titled
"Zippori Live!" In this course, students
will participate in a living theater to
become the people of Zippori. The stu-
dents will act out situations including

daily activities that would have taken
place during various time periods when
Zippori was occupied, such as prepar-
ing an evening meal.
"Sepphoris in Galilee" was originally
brought to the United States by the
North Carolina Museum of Art, and
from Michigan it will continue its tour
of Emory University in Atlanta.
The exhibit runs through Dec. 14,
and admission is free.

still have parties without flyers. He
said fraternity parties should be
"friends" parties.
"Go to the Diag, go to festifall and
other freshman functions. Get to know
some freshmen. Then, invite those you
know," Tanner said.
Delta Tau Delta President Ryan Van
Houten, whose house also was not
sanctioned, said he was not concerned
about not using flyers, saying his house
will continue to hold parties for those
people whom they know.
decided to attend the University of
Illinois, where the Native American
population was very low. Megginson
said he never felt completely com-
fortable, but his feelings changed
when he came to the University of
Michigan because of its minority sup-
port groups, such as the American
Indian Science and Engineering
Society and the Native American
Student Association - both of which
Megginson is a part.
"This community is a much more
friendly place, making it a place where
mentoring is easier," Megginson said.
"I've been mentored by a lot of people in
the community"
Rauch also pointed out that
Megginson has done a lot to help the
mathematics community in Ann Arbor,
including revamping the heavily fre-
quented Math Lab.
"He really brought it to life," Rauch
University mathematics Prof. Paul
Federbush said Megginson generally
receives exceptionally high evaluations
from his students.
"We have a real find," Federbush said
of Megginson. "This is very special."

a healthy lifestyle. Nonetheless, if st*-
dents find themselves awake at night,
Aldrich suggested "getting out of bed
and doing something else.'
If a specific sleep environment
becomes associated with anxiety
and not sleeping, a change of loca-
tion can allow the person to once
again associate the bed with sleep,
thereby reaffirming it as a pleasant
place, Aldrich said.
Some students have their own home
remedies, however.
"I just try reading the most boring
thing I can find," Brimo said. "Usually
it's a textbook.

on viewers' feelings.
"I don't think that the skit was meant
to be derogatory to anybody," Barnett
said. "All of the comedy on Jay's show
is meant to be comedy." ,
Barnett said the show's supervising
producer, Patti Grant, is expected to
respond to the 272 letters they received
from University students.
"She'll probably put together some
sort of letter in response to the letters,"
Barnett said.
Barnett said Leno probably won't
make an on-air apology because he
would then have to issue public apolo-
gies to all groups he includes in his
"He can't start that precedent, unfor-
tunately," Barnett said.
The letters addressed to "The Tonight
Show" asked for an on-air apology dur-
ing the show, as well as the production
of a documentary intended to educate
people about Gandhi and his life's con-
"I know it's a big thing to ask, but
hopefully something will come out of
it," said IASA co-President Ruhul
Shah, an LSA junior. "It's something
that needs to be done in light of the
Jay Leno show. ... I don't think it's
too much to ask to give an apology on
the show for a few seconds," he said.
Pareen Shah, who earlier wrote an
individual letter to Frank that was near-
ly identical to the one signed by hun-

rather receive individual comments
from its viewers.
"It was odd," Frank said.
While Frank said that the way in
which Indian Americans were por-
trayed on the two episodes in question
was insensitive, the intent was not to
offend viewers.
"I think we have to assume this was a
one-time exception," Frank said.
"Hopefully, the people will be more
aware of the sensitivities."
LSA sophomore Jigar Shah, the
Asian-Pacific advocate for lASA, said
he hopes the letter-writing campaign
promotes racial awareness, more edu-
cation and the breaking of racial stereo-
types and barriers.
"(Regarding) Indians in the media,
there is no balance," Jigar Shah said.
Jigar Shah also pointed to the fact
that the episodes in question appeared
at the same time India celebrated its 50-
year independence from Great Britain,
a time of acknowledging the country's
positive events during the past 50 years.
"They should have been celebrating
the country itself, not the poverty," Jigar
Shah said, referring to the NBC inci-
dents and negative emphasizes of India
in the media.
An unnamed representative of the
"Caroline in the City" show said the
office had not yet received the letters
directed to that show.
Pareen Shah said members of the
Indian American community have tra-
ditionally not been vocal when faced
with incidents such as this.
