already taken very seriously on campus.
- "No one sees the other side," Holoweiko said. "It's not
helping either side by having a day of action."
BAMN member Adam Lerman said the University's
first day of action served as a wake-up call for students
around the country to stand up for affirmative action.
"This day of action is a direct result from the other day
of action," Lerman said. "People are coming out of the
woodwork to be a part of the movement."
Lerman said a delegation of University students plans
travel to college campuses in New York to participate
in the events planned for the day.
"I think students are starting to get the sense that this
is becoming a part of a national movement," Lerman
said.
Rackham student Thomas Guglielmo, a member of
Academics for Affirmative Action and Social Justice, said
tomorrow's events will be aimed at educating the
University about the need for diversity.
"Affirmative action is extremely important and it's.
under attack nationwide in various different levels of
vernment," Guglielmo said.
FILM
Continued from Page 1
Despite Meeker's claim of MGI's "pulling out" the dis-
tributor still handles the film's distribution.
- I wish someone (from "Four Corners") would call me and
let me know what is going on," Meeker said.
When asked about specific contractual obligations,
Meeker declined to comment.
Rad said MGI will hold rights to the film until a lawsuit is
brought against the company.
"But I have no money to sue," he said.

COURT
Continued from Page 2.
and Justice Antonin Scalia, said
they were skeptical of this open-ended approach.
"I don't understand that leap," Scalia snapped in
response to a lawyer who argued that a fear of having
sex or children is a disability, even without other symp-
toms.
Would someone be said to be disabled or impaired,
Scalia asked, because they had a gene that was a precur-
sor to a manic-depressive disorder and for that reason
feared having children?
No, the lawyer conceded.
The case heard yesterday, Bragdon vs. Abbott, is a
classic example of the small dispute that turned into a
major test of the law.
Sidney Abbott went to Dr. Randon Bragdon's dental
office in Bangor, Maine, on Sept. 16, 1994, for a check-
up. On the patient registration form, she disclosed she
had the AIDS virus.
The dentist examined her and said she had a cavity.,
While he would repair her tooth, Bragdon said he would
do so only in a hospital. It would be safer for him, he
said, although more costly to the patient.
She left and later filed a lawsuit under the Americans
With Disabilities Act, charging he had discriminated
against her because of her disease.
Abbott won before a federal judge in Maine and before
the U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston. But the Supreme
Court justices agreed to hear the dentist's appeal.
Abbott "is the classic example of a person who had no
symptoms, no difficulties whatsoever" because of her
HIV infection, John McCarthy, the dentist's lawyer, told
the court.
In his brief, he cited the examples of former Los
Angeles Lakers star Ervin "Magic" Johnson and
Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis. Though
infected with the AIDS virus, both turned in superior
athletic performances, he noted. Surely they would not
be seen as "disabled" persons, he argued.
McCarthy said the law should cover persons who have
problems with "day-to-day independent living and eco-
nomic self-sufficiency."

Paper
money
may be
replaced
WASHINGTON (AP) - The famil-
iar phrase "paying with plastic" may
take on an entirely new meaning. The
government is testing new materials for
the nation's folding money - including
a tough but flexible plastic.
Advocates say plastic, or polymer,
bills last longer than paper, are more
difficult to counterfeit and don't get all
wrinkly if you accidentally leave them
in your jeans on washing day. They're
less prone to rejection by change
machines and, when worn out, can be
recycled into other plastic products.
Skeptics worry the public would
reject them, that they would force an
expensive retooling of currency-sorting
and counting machines and that such a
radical change could subtly undermine
confidence in the U.S. dollar.
The Treasury Department already is
in the midst of a multiyear redesign of
the nation's currency, the first in near-
ly six decades. It introduced new $100
notes in 1996 and new $50 bills last
year and plans new $20s later this year.
The new paper bills feature enlarged
portraits, watermarks, a numeral in

color-shifting ink and a polymer securi-
ty thread. Officials aren't sure they
want to take another big step.
"We're pretty far down the road from
making any decision about proceed-
ing," said Treasury Assistant Secretary
Howard Schloss.
Nevertheless, the department's Bureau
of Printing and Engraving is running
extensive tests on a variety of materials,

including a plastic developed by the
Reserve Bank of Australia and a paper-
plastic sandwich produced by a Canadian
company, Domtar Inc. of Montreal.
"We and every other bank note print-
er in the world are taking a look at this
material," said Thomas Ferguson, the
bureau's acting director. "We've run
some print trials and we'll be running
some more."
