IIID.C., goes West 5'
The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, February 4, 1998 -7
WASH INGTON (AP) - Monica
Ldwinsky left town yesterday for a
lifornia respite as her lawyers waited
or prosecutors to make the next move
to'.secure her cooperation. The investi-
gation into an alleged presidential affair
'nd coverup pressed deeper into the
White House inner circle.
Prosecutors questioned one of
,President Clinton's former senior advis-
ers; and confidants, George
Stephanopoulos, before a grand jury
and subpoenaed one of the president's
orrent top deputies, John Podesta, to
sify later this week.
"I have no first-hand knowledge at
all about the nature of the relationship,
if any, between the president and
Monica Lewinsky," Stephanopoulos
said after more than three hours before
the grand jury. He said he had met
Lewinsky a few times.
The summons to Podesta, the White
House deputy chief of staff, along with
other subpoena to Clinton's most trust-
,adviser, Bruce Lindsey, prompted
White House lawyers to hold preliminary
discussions about whether to invoke exec-
utive privilege to bar certain testimony.
Presidential lawyers debated whether
to instruct key witnesses, such as
Podesta and Lindsey, not to testify
regarding their conversations with the
president or presidential lawyers about
Lewinsky, officials confirmed.
The officials, who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity, stressed the discus-
sions were preliminary and some of
Clinton's political advisers worried the
strategy might create a public appear-
ance of stonewalling.
The principle of executive privilege,
asserted unsuccessfully during the
Watergate battle for President Nixon's
tape recordings, gives the president the
right to keep secret internal delibera-
tions that could affect national security
or foreign policy.
It was unclear how Clinton's lawyers
might apply that to the Lewinsky matter.
Meanwhile, Lewinsky took a first-
class flight back to Los Angeles to spend

sibility that Clinton obstructed justice by asking Lewinsky to lie.
"It's now clear that Starr's last shot at getting the president is the obstruction of
justice route," Traugott said.
Traugott said the group of people involved in this scandal are interesting.
"This is one of the most unsavory set of characters we've seen together ... in a
long time," Traugott said.
Former University political science Prof. George Grassmuck said the independent
counsel has grown exponentially since its conception in the 1970s.
"Now, the media is the fourth branch of government, but do we have a fifth
branch, the independent counsel?" Grassmuck asked. "The question now is, are
(these investigations) valid? Should they continue?"
Traugott said Starr will continue to gather evidence because the Congress that
passed the Independent Counsel Law in the 1970s "created an office which is
Despite the scandal, Clinton's approval rating is as high as any sitting president's
has ever been, Traugott said.
"The problem with this is the analysis on why these (ratings) are going up," Traugott
said. "I don't think anybody really knows (why)."
Traugott said the media should be more careful about the stories they pursue,
AP PHOTO warning of sources that plant false stories. "Now the mainstream media has found
it acceptable to quote from these stories."
Grassmuck agreed, saying some stories are reported without checking facts.
"The worst part of it all is that now people say alleged' and then they forget that
and can say anything," Grassmuck said.
rosecu- With the Iraq situation heating up, some wondered whether Clinton's troubles
should will affect U.S. foreign policy. Grassmuck said the scandal will not change a thing.
ution in "I think the foreign policy path was set long before this outburst," Grassmuck said.
mained Engineering first-year student Mark McCasey said the media's coverage of tb
eaking, scandal has seemed tainted.
He said "I came to get the opinions of ' lot of different people," McCasey said ,j'J

nation's capital for the first time since the
controversy arose two weeks ago.

Ginsburg, said in an interview with The

the residence halls.
"The dining rooms have been largely able to handle
the volume we've had," Levy said. "Lines at peak
times we would not associate with a couple 100 more
people in the system."
Zeller said improvements in the cafeterias are nec-
sary to facilitate a comfortable dining atmosphere.
"We feel that our dining facilities are the venue in
which students eat and interact, and are in need of
upgrades and modernization," Zeller said.
Special Assistant to the President Anne Knott said
plans for dining facilities were mentioned during a
meeting with Vice President for Student Affairs
Maureen Hartford and Master Plan architects Denise
Scott Brown and Nancy Trainer, although no new
"Obviously, if you go to one dining hall, you free up
some space for other things. It has not re-surfaced in
any strategic way."
Regent Andrea Fisher Newman (R-Ann Arbor) said
she has not heard about the cafeteria plan since it was
"We only approved the design concept," said
Newman, who suggested a system of closed walk-
ways for students to use in case of bad weather.
"I think we definitely need to look at the improve-
ments for the students as well as cost saving,"
Newman said. "My concern was ... that while it makes
sense to consolidate the cafeterias of these four dorms,
it doesn't make sense for students to go out in
inclement weather to get to their food source."
Students who eat in the dining halls on a regular
basis said they have mixed feelings about having a
single dining hall.
"I like having Stockwell cafeteria the way it is,"
said LSA sophomore Grace Chen. She said she is con-
cerned about the noise level in an area inhabited by
many students at once.
"There are already so many people in there - I
can't imagine what it will be like when it is all one,"
LSA sophomore Carol Chu said she enjoys having
a variety of cafeteria sizes to choose from, and is con-
cerned that one cafeteria could limit her choices.
"Now, you have big cafeterias on (Central
Campus), and if you want to go to a smaller cafeteria,
you can," Chu said.
Law second-year student Kevin Pinentel said the
current cafeterias need spatial readjustments, especially
in areas where workers and students come into contact.
Building a newer dining hall may relieve traffic in the
dining halls on Central Campus, Pinentel added.
"I think that is an ideal solution," Pinentel said. "I
don't think there is much mobility. If you place incen-
tives to stay away from Central Campus, it will help.
"The area is so cramped," said Pinentel, who claims
the crowding caused him to spill part of his lunch on

received in recent years.
"We don't expect to do nearly as well
as we did last year," Courant said.
Dalman said that due to the universi-
ty constitutions that many institutions
have, the state has very little impact on
their operation. She said she believes
that most administrators would rather
run their universities as they see fit.
"It's good that (Engler) doesn't focus
on it," Dalman said. "Other than the
funding, they'd rather not have the gov-
ernor in their domain."
Courant said recent funding increases
have helped the University expand and
improve programs. He said that main-
taining tuition costs and retaining key
faculty members are direct results of
recent years' healthy appropriations.
"We have been able to provide excel-
lent ... education without increasing
tuition due to the state appropriation,"
This year, the University Budget
committee submitted a budget requtst
to the state that focuses on the expan-
sion of current University programs.
"We singled out living-learning pro-
grams in our budget request," Courant
said. "Every tenth of a percentage point
is big money. We're just watching and
