artliquake
victims get
aid; some
cce area
RUSTAQ, Afghanistan (AP) - The first
desperately needed aid trickled in yesterday for
earthquake victims in Afghanistan's mountains
- on trucks where roads were passable, on
donkeys where snow and ice were too deep.
Survivors slowly walked out, with stories of
whole families lost.
Frozen bodies were strewn across devastated
wns and villages, many still unburied after
s past Wednesday's 6.1-magnitude quake
crumbled hillside homes of mud and brick or
buried them under landslides.
Rescue workers say as many as 5,000 people
died in the quake and a series of ruinous after-
shocks.
One girl wept as she tried to recount how her
entire family of seven was crushed under the
rubble of their home in the northeastern village
of Khojah Khirat.
"It's so painful, so painful," 7-year-old
ahiish whispered, her eyes brimming with
tears." don't know if I have any relatives left."
She was among more than 100 people yes-
terday in the only clinic in the hard-hit town of
Rustaq, reached by an Associated Press
reporter on one of the first aid flights into the
quake area.
The patients lay in darkness on the building's
dirt floor - the clinic's power had gone out.
Hundreds of villagers carried heavy bundles
and led goat herds down muddy roads in the
ion, seeking shelter or fleeing in fear of
more tremors.
A Pakistani air force cargo jet and a Red Cross
turbo-prop plane landed in nearby Hajaghar yester-
day, bringing medical and sanitation supplies,

TEXTBOOK
Continued from Page 1
said the lack of competition among bookstores
leads to inflated prices.
"The problem lies with the publishers and the
retailers" Rosenberg said. "Both parties are to
blame."
Rosenberg said one way to alleviate this prob-
lem is to make the list of required course texts,
compiled by the Textbook Reporting Service, pub-
lic rather than just releasing it to the bookstores, as
the service does now.
"There could be value in making the list
available to public," Rosenberg said. Other
bookstores then would be able to order some
required books, and students would have more
choices when purchasing their books,
Rosenberg said.
"This is an outstanding first step" Rosenberg
said. "But the University needs to look at the entire

local market."
Though Firestone said he realizes that "studN
were going to be in support of the sales ta*
decrease," he said there is a downside to the pre-
posal. The money lost from the sales tax, Firestk7
said, would be taken from funds currently given to
primary education.
"Public school funding would be hurt, and typi-
cally (these schools) are more dependent on state
aid," Firestone said.
One thing the forum brought to light was the
high cost of coursepacks and other required
material, which are not currently included in
the bill.
"The issue is not just textbooks, it's all class
materials," Rosenberg said. 7
Cherry said this is an issue worth examin-
ing.
"You've got to look at the high cost of text-
books, but coursepacks and software could le
included also," Cherry said.

blankets and tents to the thousands left homeless in
temperatures below freezing.
Military trucks carrying the relief supplies
lumbered slowly toward Rustaq, 25 miles
away, where hundreds of quake refugees were
seeking shelter.
"We don't know where the (refugees) will
stay, and we are trying to organize a camp so
they don't just spread around the town," said
Juan Martinez of the Red Cross.
Qari Amir Allam, an official with the military
alliance that controls the region, said yesterday
that at least 4,000 people were killed in the quake
and subsequent aftershocks. Previous estimates
have ranged from 2,000 to 5,000.
Twenty villages were destroyed or damaged
by the landslides, said Allam, who met the
cargo flight.
"The dead bodies now are frozen," Allam
said. "We must dig them up and bury them

properly"
Allam said the latest aftershock rumbled
through one or two villages Sunday, killing
more than 200 people.
"We desperately need outside help,"he said, as
Pakistani cadets and Afghan forces unloaded
more than 200 blankets and 200 tents from the
cargo jet, which later returned to Islamabad.
Aid groups have been scrambling to reach
the area, nestled at the junction of the Hindu
Kush and Pamir mountains, since Friday, when
reports of the first quake emerged. .
A U.N. team was approaching Rustaq on
donkeys and horses after a U.N. truck convoy
proved unable to make its way through snow-
covered mountain passes.
The team reached a village on the outskirts
of the affected area, where it reported 320 peo-
ple had died and 400 were injured, local offi-
cials told Khalili.

night, but any chance in the day I get, I'm sleep-
ing," Derrow said.
Derrow said he gets an average of 12 or 13
hours of sleep each day.
"I can't stand to go to sleep around 10 o'clock at
night- I'm usually waking up around then,"he said.
Instead of sleeping long hours, many students
use daytime naps to re-energize themselves.
"I can sleep anywhere, anytime," said
Engineering junior Wesley Lummis. "Just let me
sit still for a couple of minutes."
Lummis said he does not think his talent for
napping is due to a lack of sleep.
"I could sleep 10 hours and the same thing hap-
pens," Lummis said.
But not all college students depend on caffeine
to keep them up until the wee hours of the night.
"I'm useless the next day," said LSA junior
Katie Geary. "I don't drink any caffeine - ever -
because I think it's really bad for you."
Coordinating sleep schedules often is a problem
for roommates.
"My roommate goes to bed at 5 a.m. every
morning and gets up at 8 a.m. ... she can't sleep,"
Geary said.
Sleep deprivation leads to "decreased attention,

concentration, and changes in mood," said neurol-
ogy Prof. Beth Malow.
"Total sleep deprivation is worse than partial;
but even partial can affect cognitive functions"
Malow said.
The amount of sleep needed by people varid,
Malow said.
"Some people can get by with five hours, but
other people need ninoeor 10," Malow said.
There are many reasons why students do not get
enough sleep - such as exams and papers.
"I woke up one morning and didn't go back to
bed until the next night because I had a I5-page
term paper due the next day," said LSA first-year
student Chris Munoz.
Even the most simple organisms, such as
plants and algae, have biological clocks that affect
their behavior, Easter said.
"It's all genetic,' Easter said. "It seems that from
the most primitive cells, they've all got (biologi-
cal) clocks."
Scientists do not fully understand these
genes, but future research hopefully will reveal
more information in the field of sleep patterns,
Easter said.
"There are a variety of sleep disorders based
upon the biological clock," Malow said. "it's
becoming an important area to try to under-
stand."
