empt, CIR and University officials said they could not
issue in-depth responses without seeing the motion.
"We haven't seen it, and in the absence of seeing it,
we do not have any comments," CIR Senior Legal
Counsel Terry Pell said.
Lisa Baker, associate vice president for University
relations, also said she could not comment on the
specifics of the motion, but emphasized the significance
of the lawsuit.
"As we said before, this is an issue of great impor-
tance to a great many people, so we are not surprised
ere are people who want to intervene," Baker said.
After the group files a motion, both the University
and CIR will have an opportunity to respond in the form
of legal briefs.

the winners of each Greek Week day were named.
But the team totals were not the only noteworthy
achievements of Greek Week.
Organizers announced that the teams raised more
than $100,000 for charities, dedicated more than
2,000 hours to community service and held a suc-
cessful blood drive.
"People see different things in Greek Week," said
LSA senior Richard Bauer, co-director of Greek
Week. "I understand some people think it's silly, but
it's reached new heights this year."
Bauer, a volunteer at the Greek Week blood drive,
cited various things that made the 1998 Greek Week
"the most successful one yet.
"In 10 days, there is so much done," Bauer said.
"All of the events contribute to fundraising."
Greek members willingly rolled up their sleeves
last week to donate blood in an attempt to meet their
"At first I was just nervous,"said Michael Melfi, a'
Kinesiology junior and an Evans Scholar. "But then
I realized I could have just saved someone's life with
that blood that I gave."
The donors said the blood donation was an effec-
tive way to help out their teams and others.
"This is definitely giving something back to the
University," said Ben Powers, an LSA first-year stu-
dent and member of Sigma Phi Epsilon. "This blood
drive is a good thing for the entire community.'
The Greek Week team members also hosted a carmi-
val and cleaning session for SAFE House last Sunday
in an effort to give the community top priority.
The carnival featured a magician, balloons and an
LSA first-year student Sarah Fanke, an Alpha Phi
member, said the SAFEHouse project involved "a lot
of cleaning and playing with kids," but did not con-
tribute to competition points for her team.
"It's a goal of Greek Week to get money for chari-
ties," Fanke said. The project at SAFEHouse "was
just to give something back to the community"
Greek team members said each house was expect-
ed to contribute at least 15 hours of community ser-
vice during the 10-day event.
But the teams also had the opportunity to have a

Greek Week's Fry Chow, sponsored by Burger King.
"I just wanted to get down as much as I could," said
Engineering first-year student and Evans Scholar Bob
Ondo, who participated in the Fry Chow.
Ondo said the event was a great addition to Greek
Week - which he considered "his favorite week so
far in college"
Steve Fanning, a Business junior and member of
Chi Psi, said this year's Greek Week turned out to be
more enthusiastic and spirited than in recent years.
