"Most students will not self-place into
a practicum," Leverich predicted.
Leverich added, however, that the sig-
nificance of the change may be overstat-
ed. "I don't see it in the long run making
a big difference," Leverich said.
Amy Kullenberg, a member of the
Graduate Employee Organization, said
she was not aware of the change and was
not in a position to comment on how the
change would affect GSIs or say whether
the group would support the change.
LSA first-year student David Victor
questioned whether the change would be
good for students. "I thought the ECB
was a pretty good plan," Victor said,
adding that as long as the ECB evaluated
portfolios, he believed students would
end up in the right class.
LSA first-year student Theodore Velie
said he wondered whether students would
be good judges of their work. "I think stu-
dents probably wouldn't be as objective
as the University would," Velie said.

"I would assume that they would
wait at least three or four years - until

on campus when the chapter is restart-
ing, Holcman said.
Engineering first-year student Mike
Delaney said he thinks Phi Delta Theta
is being unfairly singled out.
"It's not to say they're any more
guilty than anyone else," Delaney said.
"They crossed the line, but they are
being made an example of."
Engineering senior Melissa Patek
said the actions against Phi Delta Theta
should serve as a wake-up call to other

control, but I think they need to set an

"The police should keep doing it,
but, by itself, it is not going to do any-
thing;' Benet-Martinez said.
Benet-Martinez added that in order
for minors to understand the risks of
alcohol, society must stress education
rather than glamorize alcohol.
"Alcohol should not be glorified the
way this culture glorifies it," Benet-
Martinez said. "Something is wrong
when people feel the only way they can
be expressive is when they drink"
Kathy Klykylo, a coordinator with
the Drinkwise program, said it is nec-
essary to use both education and
enforcement to prevent future alcohol
"The two go hand in hand," Klykylo
said. "One without the other won't
Klykylo added that society talks
about alcohol, but fails to promote
"low-risk usage," noting that anything
outside of the recommended guidelines
is high-risk drinking.
"A can of beer has the same amount
of alcohol as a shot of hard liquor," she

drinks for a woman is the maximum
amount men and a woman respectively
should drink, Klykylo said.

Klykylo said that although
Drinkwise is a counseling program,
"we don't preach, but we teach that
alcohol is a strong substance."
A four-year University study con-
ducted two years ago by the Institute
for Social Research found that out of a
9,945 sample of 18-to 24-year-olds, 7
percent of those studied became binge
drinkers between high school gradua-
tion and their early 20s.
Binge drinking is defined as con-
suming four or more drinks in a single
sitting, depending on the person's sex.
For the study, researchers inter-
viewed the 18- to 24-year-olds four
times during the four years.
According to the study, 14 percent of
the men and 7 percent of the women
binge drank more frequently over the
Through such programs as the
Substance Abuse Education Network
and the Binge Drinking Task Force, the
University tries to combat binge drink-
ing each year.
Marsha Benz, a University Health
Services educator and chair of the
Binge Drinking Task Force, said the
University focuses on binge drinking
because it results in more accidents and
sexual assaults than occasional drink-
"We are focusing on students in the
residence halls because they are the
students with the highest risks for prob-
lems," Benz said.
Benz added the task force tries to
correct the images students enter the
University with about alcohol.
"We want students to make better
choices and shift culture in places
where drinking is the really cool thing
to do," University spokesperson Julie
AROUND THE NATION
Regulators to speak on emergency care
WASHINGTON - Hospitals can't delay or deny emergency room care just
because a patient's health insurance plan requires permission before treatment,
government regulators are ready to announce this week.
A 1986 law bars hospital emergency rooms from refusing to examine and stab
lize patients who can't pay. Now, federal officials will use the "patient dumpin
prohibition to ensure immediate care whether or not insurance pays.
"Despite the terms of any managed care agreements ... federal law requires that
stabilization medical treatment be provided in an emergency," said Health and
Human Services Department Inspector General June Gibbs Brown.
The 1986 law was intended mainly to protect people without health insurance.
However, delays while emergency room staff consult with health plans to see if
insurance will pay are on the rise, regulators say. In some cases, federal officials
say, patients with potentially serious health conditions have left emergency roons
after being questioned about their insurance.
To deter such incidents, the U.S. government will begin applying to correct
delays regulators say may have been caused by attempts to ensure health paym
American Hospital Association spokesperson Rick Wade said clarification in t T
law is welcome. But, he said, "It's not going to solve the problem of some plans
deciding that they'll use pre-authorization rules as a way not to pay hospitals."

A high-level Pentagon panel that

programs is due soon to approve the
Navy's concept for turning its fleet of
Aegis cruisers and destroyers into

President Ronald Reagan's "Star Wars"
With the Army's $14 billion effort
faltering badly amid a host of quality-
control problems and five consecu-
tive intercept test failures, the Navy
program has emerged in the eyes of
many missile defense advocates as
the nation's best hope for fielding an

LOS ANGELES -TV fans first got
to know Darlene Gillespie as a freckle-
faced Mouseketeer, described by Disney
publicity as having "more bounce to t
ounce than a bottle of a soda pop.
She was one of the nine original
Mouseketeers who appeared in the first
season of the "Mickey Mouse Club"
and stayed for the duration of the
show's 1955-1959 run.
Now the 56-year-old Gillespie is
back in the public eye, with jury selec-

stock fraud charges. Her fiance has
pleaded guilty in the case and been se

AROUND THE WORLD
U.S. cautions Israel
on military actions
JERUSALEM - The United States
cautioned Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu yesterday about carrying out
military action against Lebanon as politi-
cians here called for reprisal air strikes to
avenge the deaths of Israeli soldiers there.
The American message was conveyed
by U.S. Ambassador Edward Walker,
who met with Netanyahu before Israel's
top security ministers convened for a
special cabinet meeting on Lebanon.
The meeting yielded no public deci-
sions on southern Lebanon, where Israeli
troops have fought a low-intensity war of
attrition with guerrillas of the pro-Iranian
Hezbollah movement since 1985.
Washington is worried that the combat
deaths of seven Israeli soldiers in the last
two weeks will prompt Netanyahu to
order harsh retaliatory raids. Following
guerrilla attacks in 1996, Israel launched
major air and artillery attacks on
Lebanon, killing nearly 200 people, most
of them civilians.
Yesterday, Netanyahu sided with his
top army and intelligence officials in
rejecting growing public calls for a uni-
lateral Israeli withdrawal from southern
Lebanon. But he did pledge to take the
fight to Hezbollah.
"As long as we have no way to leaf
Lebanon in a way that ensures the securi-
ty of the north, we will stay with the main
goal of defending our soldiers, reducing
harm to them and increasing damage to
Hezbollah' the prime minister said.
