*DEFENSE
'Continued from Page 1A
If' there's a class to take on self=
defense, by all means take that class,"
Jerue said. "But just taking the class
without practicing and becoming profi-
cient will increase your chance of
harm."
Law third-year student Laura
Hutchinson, a participant in the
MOVE course, said that as an under-
graduate at Rutgers University, she was
not concerned about safety issues. But
now, she realizes that self-defense is
something everyone should learn.
"I think people under 21 don't worry
about crime all that much," Hutchinson
said. "But generally when you're older,
you become a lot more cautious."
Safety concerns aren't the only rea-
son students take self-defense and mar-
tial arts courses. Many participants say
Uartial arts are mentally invigorating,
improve self-confidence and boost
mental clarity.
Engineering senior Gerald Olivari,
who has taken Tae Kwon Do courses
for the past two semesters, said he uses
the sport to escape his hectic schedule.
"I'm very busy and president of three
different organizations. This class pro-
vides relaxation for me," Olivari said. "I
anted to gain control over my body.
ow I'm able to think my way through

situations. Someone could throw a
move that I've never seen before and I
can better evaluate how to respond."
L.SA senior Laura Moskowitz said
that after practicing swimming for
years, she took up Tae Kwon Do
because it allows her to exercise with
groups of people.
"I wanted a more interesting way of
working out and self-defense was only a
bit of the motivation," Moskowitz said.
"It's definitely a big boost of confidence
starting a martial art, but I don't know if
even as of now I'd feel comfortable if
someone attacked me on the street."
Jerue said students should remember
that resisting an attacker is usually not
the best method of defense.
"Most injuries occur when people
resist," Jerue said. "Whatever resistance
is offered, it is often matched and
increased by the suspect"
LSA first-year student Zack Beck
said he was recently subject to a dan-
gerous and potentially violent situation.
During winter break, Beck watched as a
man approached his friend, put both
hands in his friend's pockets and stole
his money. But Beck said the incident
has not prompted him to consider tak-
ing a self-defense course.
Beck said giving in to muggers is the
best option. He urged students to use
self-defense moves only as a last course
of action.

" would never try to brawl with any-
body," Beck said. "It's not worth it
when your life is in danger. Only in cer-
tain situations would I even consider
self-defense."
Jerue and Springfield concurred that
the best method of self-defense is to
make a conscious effort to avoid risky
situations. Springfield urged students to
plan ahead and be aware of their sur-
roundings.
"Have a general awareness and take
steps to prevent a confrontation,"
Springfield said. "Make yourself a dif-
ficult target. If I see a person I'm not
familiar with, I cross the street."
"If you think someone is following
you, go into a store and browse for a few
minutes,"he said. "If someone is in a car
or walking about, expect the individual to
attack you and get into ready mode."
If someone asks for money and looks
as if they might be physically aggres-
sive, Springfield said victims should try
to reason with the attacker.
"Just back off and say 'please don't
do that,"' Springfield said. "Then pull
out your wallet and hand it to him.
These people are strong and often men-
tally unstable.
"They usually don't think about conse-
quences until after a physical attack. By
speaking to him, you'll make the attacker
aware of what he's doing," Springfield
said.

AATA
Continued from Page 1A
Hiller said. or about S30,000 per bus.
Liz Margolis, manager of communi-
cation relations at AATA, said the pro-
iect is 90 percent funded through feder-
al and state grants. The final 10 percent
of the money was collected from local
property taxes.
The Advanced Operating System
will be evaluated by Jonathan Levine, a
University associate professor of urban
planning.
Levine said AATA was already a
solid system, so improvements in cus-
tomer service are not likely to be dra-
matic.
"They run a pretty good system to
begin with," Levine said. "If they ran a
slipshod organization, it would be fairly

easy to improve with technolo."
"It's little teeny things that go a long
way toward effetive serv ice," Hiller
said, adding that saving a few minutes
on a transfer can be very important to
passengers.
The evaluation is scheduled to be
published by the end of the year.
Bus drivers have adapted to the
system "surprisingly well" "Hiller
said. Drivers have had just two train-
ing sessions to adapt from a simple
bus to a bus with a 486 computer.
but Hiller said that drivers are mak-
ing few mistakes.
The monitors have not distracted dri-
vers, Hiller said.
"We've told them not to look at it
while they're driving," Hiller said.
Hiller said project planners are already
thinking about additional advancements.

^'' "w "e're"anxious to do is
integrate the Uiiversity s smart-cards"
H icr said. referring to the M-Card.
The AATA would like to wxork out a
system where fare can be paid by card.
For the fini being, the cards are too
slow to be used in the sstem.
Hiller said i-Cards take about five
seconds to use.
"You don't mind \naiting five sec-
onds to use a ,+ending machine,' Hiller
said, but for paN ing fares the delay will
have to be reduced to one second.
Hiller said a trial M-Card system
might be in place by late spring.
Other advancements still in the
works include intformation about bus
routes and dcl as on the AATA Website,
and a dev ice at the bus stop to display
the estimated time of arrival of the next
bus.
