felt reaction to a mental defense, a sit-
uation he cannot endure."
Kaczynski's brother, who first
identified him as a suspect for federal
authorities, began to sob. His mother,
seated next to him in the front row,
put her hand to his cheek to wipe
away his tears.
"To David, this is federally assisted
suicide," David's lawyer, Anthony
Bisceglie, told reporters. Weeks ago,
Bisceglie promoted a plea bargain
that was rejected by the government.
The defendant has not acknowl-
edged the presence of his family in
court this week.
After Kaczynski asked to represent
himself, the jury - which had never
been brought into the courtroom -
was sent home with an instruction to
avoid publicity on the case until they
are called back at an unspecified date.
Prosecutors said they needed time
to react to Kaczynski's request, but
the judge went ahead with yesterday's
Burrell said he was convinced that
"the defendant would not be asking to
represent himself if he was in control
of the mental status defense."

Prosecutor Robert Cleary said,
"From where the government stands,
he is entirely competent to represent
himself and stand trial."
Cleary had suggested Wednesday
that Kaczynski's lawyers be ordered
to abide by his desire not to present a
mental illness defense.
The judge at one point made the
same suggestion, drawing incensed
responses from Clarke and lead
defense lawyer Quin Denvir, who said
they had an ethical obligation to put
forward the best defense possible for
a man facing potential execution.
Cleary acknowledged yesterday
that he could find no legal precedent
supporting such an order to the attor-
neys. A defendant is entitled to decide
whether he pleads insanity, he said,
but it is less clear whether he can
decide not to put on a "mental defect"
defense. Kaczynski, a brilliant math
professor who retreated to the
Montana woods and became a
recluse, is accused of being the anti-
technology zealot known as the
Unabomber who conducted a siege of
deadly bombings over 18 years that
killed three and injured 29.

transmission of the (Biblical) text and the extent to which one
can observe that development," Williams said.
Williams also said he hopes students appreciate the beauty
of the earlier pieces on display, as they represent individual
efforts as opposed to mass-produced works of later years.
The current exhibit displays only .1 percent of the entire
collections' 10,000 pieces of papyrus.
"The bulk of the University's pieces are not sacred in
nature, but documentary," said Kathryn Bean, curator of the
Humanities Collections in the Special Collections Library
and one of the exhibit's coordinators.
"The majority of our collection is census reports, recipes
and descriptions of how to bury the dead," Bean said.
The collection also holds two copies of a donkey theft

the planet," Carol said. "But the rate at
which we've increased greenhouse
gases ... would indicate an artificially
induced or enhanced temperature
change. That level of change over a
short period of time is something that
would not be typical."
Although there is debate over the
true causes of global warming, most
researchers share the same outlook on
the future: if left unchecked, green-
house gas emissions will continue to
grow, and global warming will only
get worse.
"The concern is that the human
impact can only grow, while the natur-
al signature is at its upper limit,"
Pollack said. "If greenhouse gases
continue to increase, then one can
expect significant global warming in
the 21st Century."

The papyri documents displayed in the current exhibit
were chosen for the Biblical stories they tell and their corre-
sponding detailed and colorful art work.
Valerie Krasny, a Michigan State University first-year stu-
dent who stopped by to view the exhibit, said she was sur-.
prised by the artwork.
"The colors are really great," Krasny said. "I thought
everything was in black and white back then."
Her father, Michael, also visited the exhibit, and said he
hoped the texts would validate his religious beliefs.
"We think of so many things being lost in translation, but
when you see texts from 119 A.D. you can have more confi-
dence in the Bible of today," Michael Krasny said.
Brought back by popular demand, this annual exhibit has
run with some changes and improvements since 1983.
The exhibit is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-5
p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. through noon through Jan. 31 at
the Special Collections Library, located on the seventh floor
of the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library.
