Assistant to the Vice President for
Student Affairs Sean Esteban McCabe
said that despite the lack of awareness
week activities, it is important to treat
alcohol consumption as a serious issue.
"There is a strong need for the
University to examine our approach to
dealing with alcohol and other drug
incidents," McCabe said. "National
surveys consistently reveal that alcohol
abuse is the number one public health
problem on ... college campuses and
our institution is not exempt."
But McCabe said the best way to fight
alcohol abuse is not necessarily through
events sponsored in correlation with the
nation's periodic awareness week.
"The only way (of) addressing and
reducing alcohol and other drug inci-
dents on college campuses its through a
comprehensive approach," McCabe
said, adding that the task force is evalu-
ating how to maximizes the expertise
on the task force in order to ensure that
it handles the critical problem of binge
drinking as thoroughly as possible.
Interfraternity Council President
Bradley Holcman said campus fraterni-
ties and sororities have, in the past,
made alcohol awareness week events
- formerly held at the University the
first week of November -- a part of
their new member programs.
"We always promoted the week and
the activities going on," Holeman said.
Although the normal activities of the
week are not being observed, the
University will continue its tradition of
inviting Mike Green, a former alco-
holic, to speak to students Nov. 18 at 7
p.m. at Rackham Auditorium.

SUSPENSION
Continued from Page 1
After working through possible
scenarios of Cantor's death, Cassin
said he believes Cantor was leaning
out the window - possibly because
she was feeling sick or trying to close
the window - and fell out head first.
Cassin said the window was not
broken and that it is possible for
someone to fall out a 12-inch open-
ing.
"You would have to measure the
size of the head, the angle in which
they fell and the acceleration rate," he
said.
He added that he does not believe
the Department of Public Safety's
theory that Cantor slipped off her lad-
der and out the window while climb-
ing into her loft.
But neither Cassin nor DPS has
officially confirmed the manner of
death, and the case is still open.
"There's no compelling theory that
it happened one way or another,"
Cassin said.
He said Cantor fell head first
because she was either feeling sick
and leaned out of her window or she
was trying to close the window.
Pending approval of the
Interfraternity Council and the
University, the fraternity could return
to campus after two years.
"There's the potential that we could
sanction individual members because
of the violations that occurred,"
Mores said, adding policies "vary
from campus to campus.";
IFC will not sanction members of
the fraternity, said IFC president
Bradley Holeman.
"IFC is not going to conduct an
investigation because there is no{
chapter to investigate," Holman
said.
The council is supplying informa-
tion about housing options to dis-
placed fraternity members, Holemant
said.
"Our main concern is making sure
Ms. Cantor's family and friends aret
good ... and secondly for the frater-t
nity members," Holeman said.t
The Chi Omega national headquar-
ters also conducted an investigation
this weekend, said Mary Ann Fruge,
national president for the organiza-
tion.
"Obviously as the national presi-
dent of Chi Omega, I wanted to
express sympathy to (Cantor's) fami-
ly and friends," Fruge said.
Fruge and another sorority official
interviewed campus chapter members
during the weekend.
"There is no evidence that Chi
Omega provided alcohol in anyway toc
Courtney," Fruge said. "To my under-t
standing there is a difference in theI
activities of the Phi Delta chapter andr
of Chi Omega."I

"No one wins here. It's a zero-v

University Vice President for

increases are taken "very seriously"
in Lansing and the concerns
expressed by Schwarz are valid, but
there is no current legislation under

way the credit is applied.s
Schwarz said schools that keep
tuition down just to receive the
credit will be hurt in the end.F
"It's my job to make sure that allE
15 campuses get a fair shake in the
appropriations process," Schwarz
said. "There's a finite number of
dollars around and an infinite num-
ber of interests chasing them."e
And while the state appropriation C
is an important factor in deciding
the tuition increase, Maynard said A
the University must continue to pur-
sue cost cutting measures to ensure j

Flag burning ban
amendment snuffed
WASHINGTON - Once consid-
ered likely for approval, a proposed
constitutional amendment that would
ban flag burning has been snuffed out
once again in Congress.
The House passed the measure over-
whelmingly last year, but the Senate
failed to act on the flag-desecration
amendment in the closing days of this
year's session, frustrating flag burning
foes.
"I want my colleagues to know that I
will be back next year" vowed Sen.
Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) a vehement sup-
porter of the proposal.
Earlier this year, most Senate head-
counters gauged that the amendment
was only a few votes shy of the two-
thirds majority required for passage.
Republican Senate leaders pledged to
schedule a vote on the issue, hoping
that some Democrats up for re-election
this fall would feel pressured to reverse
their opposition to the measure.
The Republicans backed off their

plan as Democratic leaders threatened
a filibuster, which would have tied up
action on other legislation as the ses-
sion neared an end.
The drive to alter the Constitution to
ban flag burning followed
Supreme Court rulings in 1989 and
1990 that struck down state and federal
statutes outlawing the practice.
Clinton names John
Podesta to top job .
WASHINGTON - President
Clinton named John Podesta as his
chief of staff yesterday, replacing mil-
lionaire businessman Erskine Bove
with an immigrant's grandson with "a
tough hide."
"Bowles, blue blood. Podesta, blue
collar," Podesta joked. "I know what
it really means to work for the mini-
mum wage and to count your raises
in cents and not dollars. ... That is
why I'm so profoundly grateful to
the president for giving me this
chance to serve our country in t
hallowed place." W

House near passing $520B spending bill
WASHINGTON - The House ignored yearlong partisan rifts yesterday and
moved toward passing a colossal $520 billion spending bill pumping cash to
farmers, teachers and the Pentagon. It would let lawmakers of all stripes cap re-
election campaigns with something to take home.
The sheer bulk of the compromise, struck last week between the White HoWt
and congressional leaders, spoke for itself. It was about 4,000 pages, weighed 40
pounds and stood 16 inches tall. And most legislators, aides and lobbyists could
only guess at what items had been squirreled into it.
But with most lawmakers weary of the 1998 budget fight and eager to get
home for the Nov. 3 elections, the House was ready to vote its approval and end
its legislative work for the year. The Senate plans to vote on the measure and
leave today. President Clinton was poised to sign the bill.
Republicans claimed victories: blocking Clinton's plans for voluntary nation-
al student testing and winning more than $8 billion for military readiness and
other Pentagon programs.
But they acknowledged the bill was a compromise that contained more sp
ing than they would like.
"Ronald Reagan taught me no matter how doctrinaire you are, you can't always
have it your way" said Rep. Gerald Solomon of New York, a Republican

Nigerian town builds
hope after gas blast
JESSE, Nigeria -The hospitals are
overwhelmed, the burn victims are
afraid of arrest, parts of this southern
Nigerian town are torched and in
ruins. For those devastated by a dead-
ly weekend fireball, there was little
hope to go around yesterday.
"See me now," said Dorcas Oboh, a
cassava farmer with bandages cover-
ing the length of both legs from burns
suffered in Saturday's accident. "I am
finished."
Oboh insists she wasn't among the
crowd of about 1,000 people the gov-
ernment says was trying to scavenge
gasoline from a punctured pipeline
when the blast ripped through Jesse,
killing at least 500 people.
"I only wanted to see what they
were doing. I went to look," she said.
With her wounds oozing and pain
wracking her body, she worries about
what will happen to her field now.
"I am finished," she repeated.
But at least Oboh is getting treat-
ment at a local hospital. Family and

friends of other burn victims have
pulled the injured out of hospitals,
fearing they may be arrested by
authorities who believe the pipe
was intentionally punctured and t e
explosion sparked by scavengers'
tools.
Authorities have not said whether
they intend to press charges.
