gratifying," Goldenberg said.
Both administrators said the
increase in applications will not
result in the type of overcrowding
that occurred this past fall, when

first-year siudenis wcre forced to
live temporarily in residence hall
lounges.
"The Admissions Office is work-
ing very hard to ensure that we
won't have the type of overcrowd-
ivg next fall that we experienced
this past fill," Goldenberg said.
"We are monitoring the situation on
a continuing basis."

Paxon voices

WASHINGiTON (AP)-- Once a fast-rising GOP
star. New York Rep. Bill Paxon jettisoned his politi-
cal career yesterday seven months after his involve-
ment in a messy failed coup against House Speaker
Neat (ingrich.
"I will never run for office again. Never. Not even
for dog warden." said Paxon, who had been weighing a
challenge to Majority Leader Dick Armey that could
have exposed deep divisions in Republican ranks.
"The priority of family must now take precedence
over politics:" Paxon added in a letterto his GOP col-
leagues. Ie said he and his wife, former Rep. Susan
Molinari (R-N.YI), parents of a daughter whose sec-
ond birthday is this spring, hope to have additional
children. Sie resigned her seat last year to begin a
new career at CBS-TV
Paxon said ie would serve out the remainder of his
current term, then "tailor my next career around our
family."
In the months since Gingrich snapped up his offer
to resign his leadership post, Paxon had moved to the
brink of a challenge to Armey in hopes of position-
ing himself to become the next GOP speaker. He told
reporters he had decided last week to make the race,
then changed his mind for family reasons.
"I took those lists last night and I put them through
that paper shredder" he said of the notes he had
made of conversations with GOP colleagues.

U.S. Rep. Bill Paxon (R-New York) speaks at a press conference yesterday with his wife, Susan Molinari, to
announce his retirement from politics.

PRESI DENT
Continued from Page 1A
"tie wias great for the times," said
former Michigan Student Assembly
President James Feeney. "When he
entered a room, you knew he was
there. But thingst have evolved over
ti1'he. The position is more hands-
on."
"Tie seemed like a popular
University president, but he might
have been a little confused about the
students," Feeney said.
McKeachie said he remembers

one dinner when Hatcher talked
about his confusion regarding sti-
dents picketing his house.
"I Cever met (Hatcher). but iI
those days it vas different; we didn't
see really see or meet the president,'.
said University alcimnus Ronald
IHlackett.
Rackham sitidCit David
Lemmerhirt said the role of today's
University president is "to define
the image of the University and
direct it into action which will por-
tray the University inl a positive
Wav.

But because the role of the presi-
dent was different during Hatcher s
term. the 1(-year president is
remembered for different things.
'One thing which sticks out in vl t
mind is his absolutely superb com-
mand of the English languge,"
McCracken said. "ie flawlessly
criafted his latguage. It was just
pleasure to listen to him"
Hatcher had less interaction with
faculty, as well as students.
"He would not initiate interaction
or ask for advice," said McKeachie,
who served on the faculty's govern-

ing body during IHatcher's term a
president. "We would sometime
schedule breakfast with him to tall
and when given, he wvOuld often tak
our advice.
Close friends of Hlate
described him as being "graciouts
and a model human.
"For 40 years I was a very goo
friend of Hatcher and his wife," sai
Prof. emeritus of accounting Waite
Kell.
"I admitire him tremendously. H
was a courageouis imanv of hig

stature.

COURSE GUIDE
Continued from Page1IA
class homepages and even syllabi for courses all
will be available online in the future.
"We're no longer going to be constrained by
the 150-word limit" Wallin said. 'Ihe online
course guide is also going to be accurate to the
minute. By the time a cvurse guide is printed.
there are usually over a hundred changes in the
courses."
Students said they have mixed feelings about
gytitig online to find course descriptions.
"I suppose it's better for the environment ' said

LSA senior Kara Kobrzycki. "I would prefer to
have a hard copy. I won't be too excited about
looking at courses online."
Other students greeted the news of added fea-
tures with enthusiasm.
"I think once lthey put the extras in, it will be a
lot better than having the regular course guide,'
said LSA sophomore Philippa Lchar.
The driving force behind this change was LSA
DeanI die Goldenberg, who has been pursuing to
put the LSA course guide exclusively online for
the past fewi years.
There were "complaints received in the past

about hard copy that can't be easily updated
Goldenberg said.
"Having an online version will permit regula
updates and we regard that as an enormous advan
tage for our students," Goldenberg said. "W
expect students to be pleased to have accurati
up-to-date information."
The time schedule, which is published by th
Office of the Registrar, will continue to be avai
able in print and online.
Assistant Registrar Lynn Adelman said studeq
and faculty still need and want print versions c
the time schedule.
