"The setup was good, but it just was-
n't scary enough," said Nursing sopho-
more Amy Ellison.
Most of those who turned out said
they had a great time, including Navy
,IOTC participant Tyrone Voughs.
SWliile Voughs directed the traffic of on-
lbokers through the haunted house's
" tnake of attractions, he lip-synced the
popular "I Ain't Afraid of No Ghost"
from the 1980s smash Ghostbuster's.
LSA first-year student Kelli Allen said
she enjoyed being scared so much that
she walked through the house both nights.
LSA sophomore Tiffany Mitchell
agreed that the haunted house was full
;of fhrills. "I was really, really scared
sand my eyes were closed most of the
time... it was worth it,' Mitchell said.

House is grateful for the support of the
ROTC and the students who volunteer
their time to the hospital. The Ronald
McDonald House provides housing for
families of sick children at Motts
Children's Hospital. McDowell said last
year's proceeds provided nights at the
hospital for 160 families in need.
Ann Arbor Coalition's Director Susan
King said she admired the unselfishness
of students. "It's great to see young adults
thinking of others needs," King said.
The Ann Arbor Hunger Coalition's
mission is to provide evening meals for
those without means to provide for them-
selves. The service provides between
100-140 meals a night at local churches.
The coordinators of the ROTC
haunted house, Jason Doster (Air
Force), Stephanie Amsler (Army), and
Mark Thomas (Navy), said they spent a
month preparing to make each scene of
the haunted house a memorable one.

he said.
David's experiences as a photojournal-
ist are just as captivating as his brother's.
"My journey started in 1982, and the
world was filled with absolutes," David
said.
After 15 years, David's perception of
the world has changed a great deal.
"It's a fascinating, complex world,"
he said.
In 1985, David lived with Archbishop
Tutu for one month and Winnie Mandela
for two months while photographing the
effects of apartheid in South Africa. In
1989, he ate dinner with Nelson Mandela
on his first day of freedom after 27 years
of imprisonment. He also served as
Mandela's photographer on the leader's
first trip around the United States.
David described the happiest day of
his life as "seeing South Africans cast
their first vote.ever."
When the Gulf War began, David
was the first photographer to enter

Baghdad. No photographers were
allowed admittance, and he entered
without a Visa, aided by an Iraqi offi-
cial who had relatives in Detroit.
In 1994, David photographed the
massacre of the Tutsis by the Hutus in
Rawanda. One of his most captivating
pictures shows a crying child clutching
the body of his dead father. David
described how a man nearby came over
and adopted the child on the spot.
Peter and David grew up in Fort
Wayne, Ind., a small industrial town that
was an example of "urban apartheid
reality," David said. The two brothers
started experimenting with photography
to find beauty in an ugly world.
"The camera became this great way
to talk about beauty in the neighbor-
hood," Peter said.
Lane Becker, who graduated from the
University in 1975, knew the Turnley
brothers as an undergraduate student. He
was very impressed by their presentation.
"It's wonderful to see what their
vision has been and how far it has taken
them," he said.

Chemicals in pot could treat pain
NEW ORLEANS - Adding new fuel to the controversy over medical uses of
marijuana, researchers reported yesterday that active chemicals found in the plant
could serve as an effective remedy for the millions who suffer serious pain each
year, without the unwanted side effects of more traditional morphine-like drugs.
New animal studies by research groups at the University of California at
Francisco, the University of Michigan and Brown University show that a group of
potent chemicals known as cannabinoids, which include the active ingredient in
marijuana, relieve several kinds of pain, including the kind of inflammation asso-
ciated with arthritis, as well as more severe forms of chronic pain.
The scientists said they believe the new research opens the way for a new class
of drugs to control pain.
Marijuana's painkilling properties have long been an unheralded - and uncon-
firmed - staple of medical folklore, but now, sophisticated animal studies of the
active biochemicals in marijuana, presented yesterday in New Orleans at a meet-
ing of the Society for Neuroscience, for the first time demonstrate that they have a
direct effect on pain signals in the central nervous system and other tissues. a
Unlike the current crop of painkillers based on opiates, the new class of che -
cats is not addictive, nor does it appear to carry the risk that patients may develop
tolerance for it and require increasing doses, the new animal research indicates..

Gridlocked Congress
delaying many items
WASHINGTON - Republican
congressional leaders can recite a
litany of remaining "must do" items,
from fast-track trade authority to a
huge transportation bill.
In the face of the usual developing
gridlock, House Republican Whip Tom
Delay of Texas is adamant: "The Senate
wants to go home. We want to fight."
But as a Nov. 7 adjournment target
approaches, more and more lawmakers
are reflecting the sentiments of Rep.
David Obey (D-Wis.): "There is
absolutely no reason for this Congress
to continue to be in session."
People are getting anxious to quit for
--Even if that means postpon-
n, action on politically appealing
items until 1998.
Already deferred are an overhaul bill
for the Internal Revenue Service, a
challenge to President Clinton's veto of
a ban on certain late-term abortions
and a bill to implement the tobacco-lit-
igation settlement.

Fast-track legislation, which would
give President Clinton renewed author-
ity to negotiate trade deals with a min-
imum of congressional involvement, is
hanging by a thread. The same is true
of a Democrat-supported bill for c
paign-finance overhaul that faces
midable opposition from GOP leaders
in both the House and Senate.
New York sees rise
in unemployment
NEW YORK - By all accounts, New
York City's economy is booming. From
the corner of 20th Street and 6th Avene
in Manhattan, for example, the signA
prosperity radiate in all directions.
Yet on the south side of 20th Street, a
crowd of a different sort has lined up at
the state unemployment bureau.
Unemployment lines are increasingly
difficult to find elsewhere in the country,
but New York boasts a singular distinc-
tion: Only here has the unemployment
rate - 9.5 percent in the city and 8.5
percent in the broader metropoli
region - actually risen in the past y.

Asian governments
resist change
BA NGKOK, Thailand - Thailand's
top political leaders huddled this past
week in emergency meetings at
Government House here as they strug-
gled to hang on to power in a country rat-
tled by a full-blown financial crisis.
Outside on the street, thousands of mid-
dle-class protesters chanted slogans and
waved signs to demand their resignation.
But perhaps the biggest threat to the
authority of the Thai elite these days is
not home-grown opponents. It is
bankers in Washington, London, Tokyo
and other far-flung cities.
The currency crisis that has swept
through East Asia's "growth rim"
economies in recent weeks has created
a crisis of sovereignty for many gov-
ernments and wealthy business fami-
lies in the region. To restore the good
times the countries' people expect, for-
eign money has to come in. Yet the for-
eigners who control it are insisting on
sometimes-deep changes that will
affect who creates wealth in these
countries and who keeps it.

The International Monetary Fund
imposed politically unpopular condi-
tions for the $17 billion bailout it is"v-
ing Thailand: The government ago
to raise taxes and cut back on spending
in an effort to create a budget surplus
next year. It also pledged to stop prop-
ping up financial institutions 'that
would otherwise fail.
Islam makes a
comeback in Russia
MAKHACHKALA, Russia- Prt
beads click on the street again and newly
built mosques rise into the sky. Russia's
Muslim south is in the throes of a reli-
gious revival, and would-be leaders are
lining up to bring the faithful to God.
Where just a few years ago red flags
and the bearded image of VI. Lenin,
founder of the Soviet state, sprouted
from every public building here, now
the flags are Islamic green and the
iconic bearded face on the banne
that of the region's holy warrior-h,
the 19th-century Imam Shamil.
