As many a museum connoisseurs
uld tell you, a Monet hangs in the
rmanent collection of the
niversity's Museum of Art.
lled "La Debacle," or "The
kup of the Ice," this 1880 painting
rms the nucleus of the current exhibi-
n, titled "Monet at Vetheuil - The
rning Point." This exhibition is
ique in many ways; it is the first-ever
keted-attendance exhibition mount-
by the Museum - and it is expect-
to attract an unprecedented number
visitors.
But the reason for hosting this exhi-
tion is not quite as unique. "Monet at
euil -The Turning Point" is actu-
ly the third in a series of University
hibitions, originally conceived by
rmer Museum Director William
ennessey.
As part of the "In Focus" series of
hibitions, this current display, like its
decessors, takes a single work in the
useum collection and places it in the
nter of an exhibition of related works.
i e the Guercino and T'ai-Chi shows
preceded it, the Monet show is
all, featuring just 12 paintings.
Annette Dixon, curator of Western
t, said that while the size of the show
small, its effect is quite pronounced.
It is "rich in scope and extent of
ploration. We are working with exist-
g information and trying to take it
e step further," Dixon said.

Joseph Wojczynski, a 22-year-old senior in the University's
chool of Music, died Sunday morning when his car spun out
f control on US-23 in Genesee County.
Wojczynski was driving from his home in Ann Arbor to a
assage class in Lapier when his car skid on a patch of ice,
idded across the median and was hit by an oncoming pick-
p truck. An ambulance arrived less than two minutes later
ut emergency medical technicians said Wojczynski died
stantly. The truck's driver was not physically hurt and the
tger sustained only minor injuries.
ojczynski, who grew up in Ada, Mich., a suburb of Grand
apids, was a quiet and insightful person who knew a lot about
fe at a tender age, said James Wojczynski, Joseph's father.
"He was quiet on the outside and much more than we
new,' James Wojczynski said. "We are still finding out what
e was about, and what we are finding out is sad. Joe had life
gured out. The rest of us, you and me, haven't figured out
hat's important."

Intern

avoids

deposition

WASH1-INGTON (AP}-- The White
House intern who has said both that she
did and did not have an affair with
President Clinton was given a reprieve
late last night from having to tell her
story under oath. Clinton, meanwhile,
got a boost from a key witness.
Long-time Clinton confidant and
power broker Vernon Jordan said he
helped Monica Lewinsky seek a job
and then set her up with an attorney,
and that she had told him "in no uncer-
tain terms" that she had not had a sex-
ual relationship with the president.
Jordan's dramatic statement came as
Clinton, firmly denying all accusations,
sought to calm the firestorm over allega-
tions that he had an affair with Lewinsky
and then urged her to lie about it.
As Clinton promised a more full
accounting and his advisers waited anx-
iously to see what Lewinsky would say
when deposed in the Paula Jones law-
suit against Clinton, a judge intervened.
U.S. District Judge Susan Webber
Wright in Little Rock, Ark., granted an
indefinite delay for Lewinsky's deposi-
tion, which had been scheduled for
today. Whitewater prosecutors are trying
to secure Lewinsky's cooperation and
speculation abounded that she would
take the Fifth Amendment. Lewinsky
remained out of sight yesterday but told
CBS News she had no comment.
With Yasser Arafat at his side in a sur-
real moment of White House diploma-
cy, Clinton made his firmest denial yet
to Lewinksy's claims in taped conversa-
tions with a friend that she had an affair
with Clinton and that he and Jordan
asked her to deny it to Jones' attorneys.

sayvaccess. to
Clinton is rare
By Peter RomerFredman
Daily Staff Reporter
As federal investigators look into allegations that
President Clinton had an affair with former White House
intern Monica Lewinsky, University students who have
interned at the White House say it's difficult, but not impos-
sible, to get to know high-profile White House officials.
The White House offers internships to college students
across the country, including many University students,
who work for about two months in various departments.
During those months, most interns work daily in the Old
Executive Office Building.A small percentage of all interns
have access to the West Wing of the White House, which
houses the Oval Office, said Sarah Holewinski, an employ-
ee in the White House's Office of National AIDS Policy.
But LSA junior Ben Wolf said it's not impossible to see
top officials while on the job.
"One of the major misconceptions is that the president is
untouchable, which is not true," said Wolf, who had access
to the West Wing as an intern last summer. "If (Clinton)
has to go to the.OEOB and you're there, you might happen
to meet him. I would obviously run into some major offi-
cials all the time. Al Gore works there. The First Lady
works there."
While some interns may encounter high-ranking gov-
ernment officials from time to time, most only have access
to staff members who interact with the president, said LSA
senior Eric Jamarkin.
'The White House is gigantic" Jamarkin said. "It's rare

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

Music's dance department gathered for a vigil Sunday night
at Wojczynski's former apartment.
"We had a candlelight vigil, we sang songs and we
danced," said Tim Spola, a Music senior who was
Wojczynski's best friend. "He had two families - a family at
home and a family of friends."
Wojczynski discovered his talent for dancing only a short
time ago when he took a class at a community college. Music
Prof. Peter Sparling said Wojczynski was a tall and limber
dancer who learned quickly and was unafraid to perform.
"He was quiet. Such a gentle soul. Yet when he started
moving and dancing, he'd come alive," Sparling said. "He
was a very intelligent and bright person, and the dance
department will never be the same.
"What was hardest for us is, as dancers, we do so much
with our bodies. We have to be alive. To try to imagine Joe
not alive is almost impossible for us," Sparling said.
The dance department cancelled classes on Tuesday and
Wednesday. Two busloads of students and the entire depart-
ment faculty were present at the funeral service at Ada's St.

Students, stores anticipate
big Super Bowl celebrations

By Ellana Raik
For The Daily
Whether Green Bay die-hards,
Broncos fanatics, or just fans of the
game, students across campus will
stock up on potato chips and six-
packs before they gather this week-
end to take part in one of America's
favorite traditions -the Super Bowl.
And for those who love football,
the Super Bowl is the ultimate game.
"It's like a national holiday," said
Engineering sophomore Mac Kern.
Plans for parties and gatherings are
distinct signs that Super Bowl
XXXII is just around the corner.
"On Super Bowl Sunday, I always
eat buffalo wings and philly cheese

LSA first-year student Ryan Ermanni.
"We're going to throw some couches
together and get some food to watch
the game."
But some of the biggest pigskin
fans are choosing quieter places to
root for their favorite team.
"I'm going to watch the game at
home with my grandmother," said
Michigan football player Shawn
Thompson.
Fans on both sides are showing
strong faith in the ability of their
respective teams even before players
set foot on the field.
"I'm going to get some friends
from my hall and celebrate the
Packers winning the Super Bowl,"

Recent disappointments changed
some students' moods about the game.
"I'm kind of bitter because I'm
from Pittsburgh, but I'll still probably
watch it," said LSA senior Kyle Perry.
And fans of other teams that did
not fare well this season are equally
disinterested in this Sunday's game.
"If the Chicago Bears were play-
ing, I would watch it," said Michigan
football player Kurt Anderson.
For some students, the game
seemed to show up without warning.
"When is the Super Bowl again?"
said LSA sophomore Quintina
Sanders.
Few students will pass up the
opportunity to party on a Sunday
