schools feel
residence
all squeeze
By Adam Cohen
Daily Staff Reporter
Universities across Michigan are facing a problem every
dministration dreads - the housing crunch.
But this year, the University has been able to accommodate
every student who requested a spot in the residence halls.
O the last ten years, this has been the best it's been to
provide quality service to students," said Larry Durst,
business manager for University Housing. "Many
schools have their largest classes this year. We dealt with
that last year. Now, U of M is a leader and a model of
housing for other schools."
The Housing Department, Durst said, has worked closely
with the Office of the Provost and the Undergraduate
Admissions Office to plan for this year's enrollment. Also,
95 percent of first-year students want to live in the residence
h .
h5urst said every student request for University hous-
ing, including those of juniors and seniors, was filled
this year. Even though Housing restricted the residence
halls to underclassmen, a handful of juniors and seniors
received beds.
"We know that many students want to come here, but
a triple is just not desirable ... so we had to work hard
not to have a problem this year," Durst said.
But the residence halls are a little tighter at other Michigan
schools.
"We resist tripling and have to limit returning stu-
d ts to dorms," said Colleen Tompkins, manager of
omer Service Operations at Eastern Michigan
University.
EMU is one of the state schools receiving a larger than
normal incoming class this year.

After receiving Starr's report on Friday, many law-
makers returned to their districts and received their
first direct soundings on it from the public.
Rep. Marge Roukema (R-N.J.) heard from many
constituents at town fairs and picnics. Those who
spoke to her "were uniformly shocked and appalled at
what was going on," she said.
One congressional office reported receiving 700 e-
mail messages from constituents on the Starr report
over the weekend.
But Democrats were heartened by positive poll
results showing that Clinton's job approval ratings had
not plummeted in the wake of the report's release.
Clinton spent yesterday in New York City following
a carefully scripted schedule of activities that presented
the president only in settings unlikely to produce scan-
dal-related questions: delivering a "major" speech on
the global economy, presenting the Presidential Medal
of Freedom, raising money for the Democratic Party.
But the forces buffeting his presidency were still in
evidence. At one stop, he was greeted by a large sign
that said: "Save the presidency. Jail Kenneth Porno

Clinton faces
uncertain future

By Mike Spahn
Daily Staff Reporter
Twice in the last six years,
President Clinton swore to "pre-
serve, protect and defend the
Constitution of the United States"
in front of the Chief Justice of the
United States Supreme Court and
the nation.
Two years after his second election
to the highest office in the nation,
Clinton's presidency is in jeopardy
because of illegal and improper acts
that Independent Council Kenneth
Starr alleges the president committed.
The president's now-confirmed

sexual relationship with intern
Monica Lewinsky and the following
attempt to conceal their affair is at the
center of the allegations, inciting
debate from the halls of the Capitol to
the streets of middle America.
But the future is far from clear at
this point, and with terms like
impeachment, censure and resigna-
tion flying through the air, it would
be easy to get lost during the long
and arduous process that lies
ahead.

Committee are currently poring

Banner
theft
irks 'U'
officials
By Nikita Easley
Daily Staff Reporter
Has anyone seen our banner?
The Michigan "Go Blue" banner
hasn't turned up since it was stolen
from Crisler Arena late Friday or
early Saturday morning.
Elizabeth Hall, spokesperson for
the Department of Public Safety,
said the banner had "not been
recovered and there are no sus-
pects."
The banner is of "sentimental
value to the University," Hall
added.
Bruce Madej, director of media
relations for the Athletic
Department, said he was surprised
Saturday to find that the banner
had been taken.
Madej said the incident did not
lessen the "morale of the football
team."
The banner, the University's
second since 1962, is about 40 feet
long and four feet wide, Madej
said.
"The actual cost is not all that
much, but the banner was priceless
for the Athletic Department" he
said.
Due to the game's excitement
and all of the preparations, many
areas in the arena were open to the
public Friday night, Madej said.
The Athletic Department has
already taken steps to replace the
old banner.
