ZThe Greek Social Environment Task
Trce, comprised of student leaders in
Ye Greek community, originally had
nned to make its recommendations
ti'April, but sped up its research after
several events this semester.
-In October, LSA first-year student

her Mary Markley Residence Hall
window after she was seen drinking at
a fraternity.
Weeks later, the Ann Arbor Police
Department cracked down on fraterni-
ty and house parties, issuing a total of
133 minor in possession citations in
two weekends.
In response to these events, the task
force began meeting weekly and
changed their report due date to Dec.
II.
"I'm really proud of the task force,"
said LSA senior Mary Gray,
Panhellenic Society President.
The task force has gathered infor-
mation from a variety of sources,
including local police officers, the

University administration, and Greek
systems at other universities, Gray
said.
During the BYOB trial period last
year, fraternity and sorority members
were to sign contracts before every
party and then fill out agreements say-
ing that they had kept to the policy
after every party.
But Holeman said after a few weeks,
the contracts and agreements dimin-
ished.
"It was never really a mandatory
thing," he said.
Holcman said the task force is not
looking for a move back towards the
BYOB policy.
Instead, its message will be one of

Tau Beta Pi, the National Engineering Honor Society, was founded to mark in a fitting manner
those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and
exemplary character as students in engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of
engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.
We, the officers and faculty advisors of the Michigan Gamma Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, wish to
congratulate the following people who have achieved our high standards and have
successfully completed the initiation rituals, thereby becoming active members of Tau Beta Pi:

left in his campaign chest. Fieger
says his committee owes $5.7 mil-
lion - most of it to him. The Fieger
campaign also has a $350,000 loan
from Comerica bank that Fieger took
out in mid-August.
Fieger said his campaign situa-
tion would be far healthier if most of
the state's major unions turned their
backs on his campaign. Among
major unions, only the Michigan
Education Association and the
American Federation of State,
County and Municipal Employees
gave Fieger the full $34,000 allowed
under campaign laws."Whatever I
did, I did on my own, and the only
significant help I got was from the
Michigan Education Association"
and AFSCME, Fieger said, repeating
a complaint he made during the
campaign. "I expected ... there
would be more financial responsibil-
ity showed by the major labor
unions, which I think betrayed the
rank-and-file."
Most of the money Fieger raised
went into producing and airing a
score of political ads, both on radio
and television. A half-hour infomer-
cial that Fieger taped cost $250,000
to air on television stations around
the state over the Oct. 31-Nov. 1
weekend.
The Engler campaign made a
concerted effort to raise more money
once Fieger began contributing his
own money to the race.

Rick Granger said he does not know
if his son plans to re-apply to the
University some day down the road.
LSA first-year student Molly
Killeen, whose Couzens Residence
Hall room is a few doors away from
the room where Granger would have
lived, said she does not think her
safety would have been jeopardized if
Granger had been admitted.
Killeen said that although
Granger's crime was "gross," she
would not have worried about him
attacking his female peers or harming
others in such a way.
"it wasn't like actual rape," Killeen
said of Granger having sex with three
14-year-old girls. "Those girls were
willing."
Killeen said she doesn't side with
neither Granger and his family nor
the University about whether he
should have been allowed to attend
the University. "I can see both sides,"
she said.

Camera snaps shots
of Martian snow
Using a camera designed to pho-
tograph microscopic bugs and
worms, William Wergin and Eric
Erbe have snapped shots being cri-
tiqued by NASA of a substance
alien to planet Earth: Martian snow.
Wergin, a cell specialist, and
Erbe, a botanist, began using earth-
ly matter to simulate and photo-
graph crystals like those that cover
the Martian icecaps about a year ago
at the request of National
Aeronautics and Space
Administration scientists.
Working at the Agricultural
Research Service's Nematology Lab
in Beltsville, Md., they shot their
one-of-a-kind pictures using the
same microscope they used in 1994
to create three-dimensional photos
of earthboundsnow crystals.
NASA scientists say the black-
and-white stills will help them chart
the thickness of the red planet's ice-
caps, track its atmospheric condi-
tions, predict climatic changes and

Russia offers new
economic plany
MOSCOW - Nearly four months
after Russia's economy went into a
tailspin, the government gave prelimi-
nary approval yestersday to an action
plan designed to pull it out of its dive.
The plan includes a list of 33 draft
laws and 36 other measures aimed at
lowering taxes and increasing invest-
ment, but it does not address the badly
out-of-balance federal budget - the
key to any rescue plan.
"They are trying to impress the
public with the number of the laws
and decrees in the program," econo-
mist Otto Latsis said. "But until the
government plainly presents their
draft budget, no one in their sound
mind will believe that they have a
program.:
The government's plodding
progress in developing an economic
program illustrates how deep and dif-
ficult the crisis is - and how divided
Russians are over what to do.
The International Monetary Fund

come to a greater understanding of
how the planet functions.
And if humans ever land there,
they'll know better what to expect.
Hasbro Scrabble tie
factory to close
FAIRFAX, Vt. -Today spells the
end for the only U.S. factory making
those little wooden Scrabble tiles.
Hasbro Inc. is hanging a C-L-O-S-E-
D sign at the Milton Bradley Wood
Products Co., which has churned out 1I
million of the lettered tiles a day for 20
years. The reason is a 10-point word:
business.
Hasbro spokesperson N k
Morris says the company began
looking at the most efficient way to
make each product and decided to
get out of the business of producing
the tiles itself. Milton Bradley is a
Hasbro division.
Eight-seven people are losing their
jobs after doing their part to make the
little rectangles that litter coffee tables
in one of every three American hos.

and other lenders insist that the gov-
ernment step up tax collection and cut
back social benefits - both of which
are unlikely to be popular with vk-

months and even years.
Art stolen by Nazis
could be returned
WASHINGTON - Thousands of
works of art looted by the Nazis could
be restored to their rightful owneor
their heirs under "4guidelines"
approved by 44 countries at a State
Department conference.
Conference organizers and partici-
pants described the agreement as a
breakthrough that will change'the
worldwide art market and make legiti-
macy of ownership a criterion equal to
authenticity of the work in decisions on
sale and display. "The art world will
never be the same," Undersecretary ol
State Stuart Eizenstat said of the S.
sponsored guidelines.

Clinton unveils tough water standards
NEWPORT, R.I. - PresidentClinton unveiled some of the toughest water
pollution standards in U.S. history yesterday, with the goal of eliminating a dead-
ly microbe from drinking water and reducing the hazardous byproducts of disin-
fectants.
After touring a water treatment plant, the president also announced the a4
of nearly $870 million in grants to help states make low interest loans to com-
munities to improve their drinking water treatment.
On a scenic overlook of Fort Adams State Park, while sailboats crossed
Narragansett Bay behind him, Clinton also used the speech to make the broader
argument that rather than damage the economy, the fight to restore the environ-
ment can bring economic benefits.
"We have got to get over this idea that protecting our environment and the
quality of our lives is somehow bad for the economy.
It will be one of the cheap generators of high-wage jobs in the 21st Century;'
the president said.
The drinking water standards are intended to eliminate from tap wata
minuscule microbial monster, known as cryptosporidium, that federal autho W
estimate kills approximately 900 people a year.
