JUKKASJAERVI, Sweden (AP) -
ike many high-class hotels, the one in
ukkasjaervi loans clothes to guests
*ho are improperly dressed. It's not a
natter of style, but of survival: the hotel
s made of snow and ice.
Not that anyone does serious lounging
n a lobby where the seats are ice blocks
overed with reindeer skins. Instead,
ts admire the vaulted snow ceiling
id the ice chandelier (lit with low-heat
ptical fibers).
Over shots of vodka - there's no beer
ecause its low alcohol level means it
vould freeze in the 23-degree room -
hey talk of the night to come.
"I'm not worried," said Tom Andrews
>f Hinsdale, Ill., a guest on a night
vhen the hotel - heated only by can-
s and human metabolism - seemed
ty compared with the minus eight
legree temperature outside.
The Ishotellet, now eight years old, has
ecome success, drawing tens of thou-
ands of people a year to Jukkasjaervi, an
md-of-the-road hamlet 100 miles above
he border of the Arctic Circle.
Last year, about 4,000 people spent the

the national organizations have put in
senior experienced staff"I Hansen said.
Given the possible national promi-
nence of the lawsuit and the importance
ofaffirmative action in achievina racial
justice, Hansen said it is not surprising
that these three groups are making the
lawsuit a high priority.
CAAP's national members said their
interest and involvement in the lawsuit are
aligned with their respective missions.
Shaw said L DF has been an advocate
for equality even before litigating in the
historic Brown v. Board of Education
case of 1954. Brown is recognized for
reversing the earlier "separate but
equal" practice affirmed in Pless vu
Ferguson, thus setting a precedent in
education.
LDF was founded in 1940 by former

Supreme Court Justice Thurgood
Mlarshiall. the high court's first black jus-
tice. Shaw said LIDF has been involved in
the majority of major civil rights cases in
history. includine Brown.
Just like the NAACP I DF, the ACLU
has been a pioneer of civil rights advoca-
cy. HI insen said. Founded in 192. the
ACLL was the first firm of'its kind.
Hansen said that although the ACLU
may be best known for its role as a First
Amendment advocate, the organiza-
tion's scope is much broader.
"That has been the most visible
image of the ACLU, but the ACLU has,
throughout its history, been committed
to racial justice:' Hansen said.
"Whenever there's race discrimina-
tion issues rising, we are often involved
in those cases," he said.
MALDEF, the newest of the three
national groups, was founded in 1968
in response to discrimination against

latino as in the United States.
"WAe're a national civil rights organi-
zation;" Mendoza said. "We are com-
mitted to advocatin) on behalf of lati-
nos living in the U'nited States."
For various reasons, representatives
of the national organizations said they
chose to collectively focus on the law-
suit filed against the University.
"The University of Michigan is
only the latest in a string of attacks
against higher education," Archer
said, referring to previous measures,
including Proposition 209 in
California and Hopwood v. the state
of Texas, both of which banned the
use of race as a factor in admissions
practices of public universities in the
two states respectively.
"This case takes it one more step,
Mendoza said. "Now, we're talking
about access to undergraduate work.
not just graduate."

Guests of the Jukkasjaervl ice Hotel in Sweden last year try to stay warm in
sleeping bags on top of reindeer skin-covered beds.

night at the hotel. The $75 room charge
includes mummy-style sleeping bags,
foul-weather gear and friendly guidance.
Johan Woutilainen, a clerk at the hotel,
comforted a nervous guest who worried
that the snow walls might collapse. The
Swedish military has tested this igloo-
style construction by firing rocket-pro-
pelled grenades at it "and it only made a
little hole," he said.
The one-story hotel is built every
December and lasts until around May.

This year's version sprawls over about
22,000 square feet and includes 29 rooms
with beds that sleep up to five people, a
chapel and an extensive art gallery.
The annual rebuilding gives design-
ers a chance to refine their ideas, and
they've developed a style of striking
elegance. The main hall is a long barrel
arch of 5-foot-thick packed snow,
bracketed by windows of translucent
ice-blocks sawed from the nearby Tone
river.

PANEL
Continued from Page 1
Circuit with Hopwood v the state of Texas, which invalidated
the use of affirmative action for college admissions in Texas,
Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi.
"We get in this debate in talking about specifics," Barry
said. "Our opponents do not want race to be considered at all.
Their rhetoric is about meritocracy. This isn't a debate about
one point or two points or three points"
Lehman congratulated the University community for sus-
taining an open dialogue about the two lawsuits, even though
the suits have the potential to divide the campus.
"I have seen from my experience as a lawyer that litigation
can be divisive," Lehman said. "I'm very happy the lawsuit has
not brought conversation to halt. In fact, it's done the opposite."
Cantor focused on the University's century-old commit-
ment to achieving diversity and assured audience members

that the lawsuits would not change this focus.
"We can't turn away from our history. Lawsuits will come
and go, but the legacy won't" Cantor said. "We would be
doing the institution a disservice if we did not recruit, retain
and graduate a diverse student body."
Cantor said she and University President Lee Bollinger
will sponsor a series of town meetings to keep the students
informed about issues relating to diversity and the lawsuits.
Albert Garcia, LSA Student Government Academic
Affairs chair, said he hoped more students could be informed
about the lawsuits.
"I really want to see a theme semester for diversity," Garcia
said. "Students need to know that these administrators are
taking time to sit down and talk to students."
Business first-year student Quay Brown said he learned a
great deal from the speakers.
"It brought to light a lot of the issues," Brown said. "The
information on the cases was most valuable."
