favoring and opposing affirmative
action.
Parks said the representatives of the
different organizations plan to continue
working together.
"It plans to be a continuous thing,"
Parks said. "We would like to discuss
things beyond this issue and to increase
cultural awareness. One of the great
things about this is that all of these
groups are able to share with each other

things that are new and different"'
Perumalswami said uniting the stu-
dent groups is important in promoting
accord on campus.
"The intention of the group is that
it's just going to be a place where we
throw around ideas, and then a place
where we can start to organize things
for the community using each of the
resources we have," Perumalswami
said. "It's not a group that's closed to
the public, but then again, it's not a free-
for-all. And basically only representa-
tives from student organizations are
involved."

EYE
Continued from Page 1
Del Young, a retired builder, said he
has built more than 400 homes in Ann
Arbor during his career, and after that,
"you have to become a Michigan fan,'
he said.
Young said his eye has sparked inter-
esting conversations.
"It's a good conversation piece,"
Young said. "Everyone encourages me
to call the papers."
The first time Young wore the eye, he
surprised some friends.
"They would see it and say ...
'What's wrong with your eye?,"' Young
said.
Young said he has his glass eye
replaced every seven to 10 years and at
his last replacement, he decided to ask
about the M.
"Initially they said it would take too
much work," Young said. "But three or
four weeks later, they called me down

Homecoming at his school is "pretty
intense."

Young explained the process of mak-

"It takes about four sittings. They take a

Then a special material is placed over
the eye and it is baked at high tempera-
tures for about eight hours. Afterwards,
the eye is fit and sanded, Young said.

"Our alums have great pride in our

"Homecoming is a great tradition. It's

University alumna Joy Hester, who
currently works at Harvard University,
said that when she was in Ann Arbor,
Homecoming was not important on
campus.
"I don't even know if Harvard has
a Homecoming, so that makes me
feel better about U of M's

"But I remember when I was at U of

I'd never go back specifically for
Homecoming."

Officials oust 110,000 illegalimmigrants
W \SIINGTON - Federal authorities ousted more than 110,000 illegal immi-
rams --including more than 50,000 criminals - in the past year, shattering pre-
vious removal records and surpassing their own goals for deportations, the
Immigration and Naturalization Service reported yesterday.
California led the nation with more than 46,000 people forced to leave the country,
about 41 percent of the total, reflecting the ongoing crackdown along the Mex
border.
But the 50 percent boost in removal rates in the San Diego and Los Angeles
areas were lower than the overall national increase of 62 percent, and far behind
the surges in Miami, New York, Newark, N.J., Chicago and parts of Texas, where
some INS offices doubled and even quadrupled the number of deportations.
"We can and will make America's streets and communities safer by deporting
criminal aliens," U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno said at a news conference,
attributing the increase directly to last year's hike in INS funding.
"Our message is very simple: Those who immigrate legally are welcome. Those
who don't obey our laws will be sent home," she said.
According to the INS report, the vast majority of deportees - 76 percentw-
were Mexicans, who make up an estimated 54 percent of the country's ill
immigrant population.

Gene linked to risk
of mental disorders
University of California at Irvine sci-
entists have identified a gene that they
believe increases the risk of schizo-
phrenia and manic-depressive illness
- mental disorders that, combined,
affect as many as 5 million Americans.
Although the history of attempts to
associate genes with mental illness is
littered with claimed links that could
not be verified, the new finding seems
credible, some experts said. They noted
that the mutated UCI gene falls into the
same class of mutations as recently dis-
covered genes linked to Huntington's
disease, fragile X syndrome and sever-
al other disorders of the brain.
UCI geneticist Jay Gareus is
scheduled to report to a meeting of
the American Society for Human
Genetics today in Baltimore that the
newly identified gene contains an
unstable stretch of DNA that grows
longer when the gene is passed from
parent to child, increasing the severi-
ty of the disease and decreasing the

age of onset - a hallmark of the new
family of genes.
"If our results are confirmed by
further studies, this discovery could
lead to the development of new tests
to identify those at risk for these dis-
eases, and possibly to a new gene y-
tion of highly targeted drugs W6
which to treat them," he said.
Pregnant Iowa mom
expecting seven kids
CARLISLE, Iowa -- For at least four
months, the folks of Carlisle had kept a
little secret: Their own [obbi
McCaughey was expecting seven babies.
But when the pregnancy for the
year-old stay-at-home mom entered its
28th week. lins started to loosen in this
Des Moines community of3,200.
"I imagine at least half of the town
knew and kept quiet,"said florist LaVena
Owens, who sent flowers to Mrs.
McCaughey's home and hospital room
with discreet delivery men. "These aren't
just people, these are friends. That's the
way our town operates."

UN council opposes
recent Iraqi actions
UNITED NATIONS-- Iraq yester-
day made good on its vow to expel
American members of a U.N. team
searching the country for weapons, as
key members of the Security Council
united in condemning the move.
In a letter to the council, Richard
Butler, the Australian diplomat who
heads the U.N. Special Commission
conducting the searches, said two
U.S. citizens were refused permission
to stay when they flew back to
Baghdad after a respite in Bahrain.
Butler said they, and a third American
attached to the International Atomic
Energy Agency (IAEA), returned to
Bahrain on orders from the United
Nations.
President Saddam Hussein's govern-
ment drew sharp criticism not only
from the United States, but also from
France, Russia and China.
Only last Thursday, the depth of the
split within the council became glar-
ingly evident when those three coun-
tries, joined by Egypt and Kenya,

pointedly abstained from a U.S.-
backed resolution threatening Iraq
with new sanctions. Now, many
diplomats here said yesterday, Iraq's
actions may have had the unint
tional effect of forcing the coun
members to put aside their differ-
ences and confront Baghdad's defi-
ance with a united front.
French adopting
Halloween customs
PARIS - To learn .how the
Grinch stole Christmas, you
look it up in a book. But how h
the French now gotten a hold of that
quintessential American holiday,
Halloween?
Tonight, as darkness settles on the
French capital, they will be pouring
special "evil death cocktails" at the Ho-
La-La cafe near Les Halles, the old
market district. At Le Lutece, a club in
the Latin Quarter, the traditional stu-
dent neighborhood, costumed monsters
will storm onto the dance floor. *
