ing education and preventive measures we're taking."
-When it comes to cracking down, Gragg said,
the University has all its cards on the table.
"Having Michael (Franzese) here showed the
viewpoint from the other side of the tracks,"
Gragg said. "It was very beneficial and something
most people haven't seen before. Most people
never see the person who was actually in the back-
rpom, doing the gambling."
The University also made it clear that the big

leagues of college sports, such as football and
basketball, aren't the only places gambling can
happen.
Tanja Wenzel, an LSA senior and member of the
swim team, attended the conference and said it
was made obvious to her that the University is not
ready to fold despite the problems of
Northwestern - a Big Ten neighbor.
"They wanted us to recognize gambling is a
problem, even though a lot of people don't see it
as that," Wenzel said, adding that gambling is
often viewed as a problem only in high-profile
sports such as football and basketball. "Now we

say, 'Wow, it's out there, and it could be a prob-
lem' ... it could easily happen to us.
For those who couldn't see the conference first-
hand, other arrangements were made.
"Our coach videotaped it," said hockey player
Josh Blackburn, a Kinesiology first-year student.
"We're all getting together to watch it."
Madej said the access to gambling - especial-
ly over the Internet - is unbelievable, and not
something that the University can pretend to
avoid.
"If you don't think 'it can happen here, you've
got your head in the sand," Madej said.

control and fighting against the situa-

"It is not enough to be supportive.
You have to be active," she said. "There
is a place you can go, and there are peo-
ple who care."

The night's guest speaker Audrey
Warren, a poet active in women's
issues, read her poems with back-
ground music enhancing the stories she
portrayed. She urged women to end the
silence.
"We speak out against silence"
Warren said. "Silence is the silent part-
ner of sexual abuse."

Mayo's Critical Care Nurse Internship Program
provides the education and skills you will need
to be a competent critical care nurse. The
program is designed for professional nurses
who are entering critical care nursing.
Mayo's Critical Care Nurse Internship Program is
offered annually or semi-annually by the Mayo
Department of Nursing. The program includes
two phases:
Phase I - An initial placement in a paid
position on a medical/surgical patient care
unit in a Mayo hospital for one year.
Phase II- A tuition-free 12 week paid
internship divided into two parts: Classroom
Sessions, Skills Laboratories and Advanced
Cardiac Life Support (96 hours/15.5 days).
Clinical Specialty Assignment with a
Preceptor 02 weeks).
Critical care at Mayo Clinic will expose you to
opportunitites and experiences that cannot be
replicated. Mayo has more than 170 critical
care beds on 10 critical care units, numerous
stepdown beds, and an Emergency/Trauma
Unit, which is a designated Level I regional
trauma center. The application deadline is
February 1, 1999 with program start date of
July 1999.

E-MAIL
Continued from Page 1
reviewing a proposed University policy,
governing computer usage, Rezmierski
said. The policy, which is expected to
be signed in the coming weeks, will
include stronger language but will still
be somewhat vague.
"Our hope in doing this is to support
the guidelines that have been in place
for some time, but also to make them a
little stronger so that they're clearer,
and people can understand when they
want to get a message out whether it's
appropriate to use the e-mail system to
do that or not," Rezmierski said.
Creating the policy also will allow
the University to enforce rules regard-
ing proper computer usage.
"If it's policy, when there is inappro-
priate use of any of the systems, if a
complaint comes in, we follow up and
... we inform people that what they've
done is a violation of University policy
and that it needs to stop," Rezmierski
said.
"And if there's any repeat of it ...
then we would take additional action."
ITD officials did not specify what
sort of punishments would be pursued,
but stressed the need for a cooperative
effort on the part of University mem-
bers to comply with the policy.
"I didn't want to get into a punitive
approach," said Jose-Marie Griffiths,
ITD's chief information officer. She
said she's "just trying to get people to
be a little bit cautious."
Currently, someone who wants to get
a list of addresses to send out mass e-
mail must go through a data steward,
Rezmierski said.
With the new policy, an e-mail
sender "wouldn't get the names unless
your request, which has to be spelled
out, meets the criteria," she said. "It has
to be official University business.
"It has to be time critical,"

Rezmierski said. "The message has to
be needed by the recipients, not just of
interest."
The new policy does not apply to.
voluntary e-mail lists, she said. And the
system will still allow lists to be creat-
ed, but ITD highly recommends acquir-
ing permission from all recipients.
"There are also mandatory lists,
which can be established within acade-
mic or administrative units."
But these mandatory lists will be
required to have a moderator, "so that
people are not sending off-topic infor-
mation to people who are on mandato-
ry lists," Rezmierski said.
Griffiths said the University "has an
urgent need" for such action, due to
recent complaints about mass e-mails
concerning book solicitations and foot-
ball ticket sales.
If the University doesn't respond to
such misuse of the system, Griffiths
believes "it'll only increase."
Engineering senior Amy Cazeault
said she thinks a tougher policy is a
good idea.
"I had, like, 50 messages in my e-
mail that day just from football tickets,"
she said.
Solicitations, Rezmierski said, are
not the intended use of the e-mail sys-
tem.
"That's a totally inappropriate use of
our system," Rezmierski said. "We
don't want the University community to
be under that kind of bombardment."
MSA Rep. Mehul Madia said the
new regulations are necessary.
"What we don't approve of is organi-
zations that send blanket c-mails across
campus because that really doesn't
accomplish anything," said Madia, an
LSA junior.
Some students doubt the impact the
new policy will have on students' e-
mail habits.
"I don't know how successful they'll
be at it," Cazeault said.

ronment, it also stressed each presi-
dent's individual authority and respon-
sibility to his or her organization.
The changes depend on each presi-
dent's commitment to making this
work, said Wes Cornwell, president of
Theta Chi.
In Theta Chi, "there are definitely
going to be some changes in risk man-
agement ... it's the smart thing to do,
said Cornwell, an LSA junior.
Henry, an Engineering senior, said he
believes the Greek system will take
issues seriously because disregarding the
policies will hurt the Greek community.
"I think we have a duty to ourselves
that the Greek system remains a domi-
nant force on our campus." Henry said.
The meeting comes shortly after the
death of LSA first-year student
Courtney Cantor, who was drinking at
the Phi Delta Theta fraternity hours
before her death.
The fraternity's national organization
revoked Phi Delt's chapter last week.
Holeman and Cornwell said the
Greek system needs to work together to
avoid other incidents similar to this.
Cantor's death brought the issues to the
surface, even though it was "not directly
related to the death," Holcman said.
He said alcohol "was a problem
before, but now it is an open problem."
Holeman said he believes the Greek
system, as a prominent campus group,
can help bring campus drinking under
control.
The rules were agreed upon because
there is a need for reinforcement, Gray
said. Sorority and fraternity presidents
are concerned about the safety of their
members, she said.
The changes discussed cannot be
expected to happen overnight,

Cornwell said. In a large Greek system
like the University's, changes will
require time and effort.

MIT drops cases
against fraternity
BOSTON - The manslaughter case
against an MIT fraternity in the drink-
ing death of a freshman effectively
ended yesterday because the frat has
disbanded and there is no one to answer
the charges.
Last month, prosecutors took the
extraordinary step of bringing
manslaughter charges against Phi
Gamma Delta - the organization, not
its members - in the case of Scott
Krueger, who drank himself into a
coma at a party and died.
Since no individual members were
named in the indictment, the case
quickly unraveled when the fraternity
disbanded.
Yesterday, the Superior Court mag-
istrate who had issued a warrant
against Phi Gamma Delta filed it away
in case the fraternity tries to reorga-
nize at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology.
Pamela Wechsler, assistant district
attorney, conceded the case is over

Gunmen fire on
funeral of young girl
PRISTINA, Yugoslavia --
Sharpshooters believed to be part of a
government security force fired on
gravediggers and several hundred
mourners and journalists at a funeral
Sunday in central Kosovo for an eth-
nic Albanian boy who was believed
slain by Serbs on Saturday, said wit-
nesses and Western diplomatic
observers.
Four U.S. diplomatic observers
were among those present Sunday in
the village of Krajkova, 18 miles west
of Pristina, where the boy's family
lives. But they declined a request from
his relatives to use the observers'
armored car as a shield during the
funeral. The observers, who were
unarmed, said they could not ensure
the family's safety and drove off after
urging the family to bury him else-
where.
The incident, which came two
days before a NATO-imposed dead-
line for the Yugoslav government to
withdraw its security forces from

for now but said it wasn't all for
naught: The charges drove the frater-
nity off campus and prompted MIT to
change its alcohol and disciplinary
policies.
"A lot of things have happened a
result of the investigation and irid
ment" she said.

Jones papers raise Wiley questions
WASHINGTON - With Kathleen Willey still the unplayed wild card in
Kenneth Starr's continuing criminal investigation, documents unsealed yesterday
from the Paula Jones lawsuit raise fresh questions about how Willey's namerongi-
nally surfaced in the search by Jones' lawyers for corroborating evidence that
President Clinton was a womanizer.
Jones' legal team said a woman called one of their attorneys in January 97
and, refusing to give her name, said "I had a similar thing happen" to Jones'
allegation that Clinton exposed himself in a Little Rock, Ark., hotel suite in
1991.
But Willey, in a September 1997 affidavit, denied making the phone call or
describing Clinton groping her in a small room just off the Oval Office in
1993.
Starr's office of the independent counsel is investigating whether the Clinton
White House used a wealthy campaign fund-raiser to persuade Willey not to pro.
vide damaging evidence against the president. His ongoing investigation could yet
produce criminal indictments.
In addition, if Willey's story about an unwanted sexual episode with Clinto*
true, she could provide key supporting testimony should an appellate court r67-
state Jones' sexual harassment lawsuit against the president.
