the computer lab in Angell Hall and to
be near the Diag where many students
The office "needs to be near phones,
computer systems and phone access.
Especially since there is no (paper)
course guide, our operation is very
reliant on being where students are,"

Wittkopp said.
LSA Adviser Cindy Barhyte said
she doubts many students will take
the opportunity to stop by the presi-
dent's office in Angell Hall to talk
"I understand presidents wanting to
be more accessible to students,"
Barhyte said. "We are concerned it

seems President Bollinger has lumped
us with paper-pushing administrators,
and we are not."
Consistent face-to-face contact with
students is part of an adviser's job,
Barhyte said.
University Registrar Tom McElvain
said he does not know where Bollinger
plans to move some of the Registrar
"I do not yet know how Angell Hall
will be reconceived," McElvain said. "I
don't think it's necessarily negative
about a move in Angel! Hall."
McElvain described the offices
the Registrar currently occupies as
decent. He added that there are
many equal or more accessible loca-
tions where the offices can be
"I didn't think it would be a terrible
thing if we moved," McElvain said.

According to a National Household
Survey on Drug Abuse, about 1.7 mil-
lion Americans used cocaine at least
once a month in 1996. Cocaine use is
shown to be highest among Americans
between the ages of 18 and 25.
According to a National Institute of
Drug Abuse research report, the num-
ber of people throughout America
using heroin continues to increase -
most users are under the age of 26.
About 2.4 million people reported
using heroin at some point in their
lives, while 216,000 reported to
have used heroin within the past
month, according to the 1996
NHSDA survey.
NIDA attributes the rise of heroin
use to a decrease in cost and higher
purity of the product.
Users can use the drug easier
now since heroin can be smoked
and snorted, instead of injected.

His grandfather told Arun Gandhi
to write down every incident of vio-

he went to bed, whether the act was
physically or passively violent. In a
few years, he said, the list covered
his entire wall.

Tobacco spent $43M
to kill legislation
WASHINGTON - The tobacco
industry spent more than $43 million
on lobbying in the first half of this year,
23 percent more than in all of 1997,
much of it to kill a national tobacco bill
championed by public health groups
and the White House, according to a
report released yesterday by Public
Citizen, which favored the bill.
More than $18 million of Big
Tobacco's expenditures went to outside
lobbying firms, with the largest chunk,
about $7.2 million, going to the D.C. law
firm of Verner, Liipfert, Bernhard,
McPherson and Hand, where former
Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell
and former Texas governor Ann
Richards worked on the tobacco issue.
The huge lobbying outlays, nearly
three times what the industry spent in
the first half of last year, "put the voice,
the message and the pressure of the
tobacco industry way ahead of the citi-
zen," said Joan Claybrook, president of
Public Citizen, a Washington-based

interest group founded by Ralph Nader.
The industry defeated the tobacco
bill with a combination of "enormous
campaign contributions" to gain access
to lawmakers, high-priced lobbyists
and an unprecedented advertising car-
paign, she said.
Ecstasy found to
damage brain cells
Ecstasy, a drug popular at all-night
dance parties known as "raves,"
appears to damage brain cells that
release a chemical responsible for
mood, memory and pain perception, a
study has found.
Dr. George Ricaurte, a neurologist
The Johns Hopkins University School
Medicine, conducted brain scans on peo-
ple who had used the illicit drug an aver-
age of 200 times over a five-year period.
The drug damaged cells that release
serotonin, a natural chemical that is asso-
ciated with feelings of well-being.
Ricaurte, however, said the study was not
designed to show whether Ecstasy
caused emotional problems only whether
it caused physical changes in the brair*

FDA approves first breast cancer drug
WASHINGTON - The Food and Drug Administration yesterday approved the
use of tamoxifen as the first drug to prevent breast cancer in healthy women who
are regarded at very high risk of developing the disease.
The drug, which has long been a potent treatment for already-diagnosed breast
cancer, can bring potentially serious side effects. Women at significant risk 1
developing breast cancer will have to decide which threat is greater, and whether it
is worth the gamble to start taking the drug when they are still healthy, the FDA
"This is not a simple, straightforward decision, but calls for a fairly sophisticat-
ed choice," said acting FDA Commissioner Michael Friedman. "We know that
tamoxifen has real serious side effects, and that not all women who take it get ben-
efits from it.
But we do know that some women at high risk have a very meaningful reduc-
tion in that risk."
The agency stressed that a woman's decision to take the drug must be made very
carefully, in consultation with her physician and taking multiple risk factors into
Chief among tamoxifen's side effects is a higher-than-average chance of deve-
oping uterine cancer and blood clots of the major veins and lungs.

S. Aica releases
new apartheid report
PRETORIA, South Africa - South
Africa's Truth and Reconciliation
Commission unveiled an unprecedent-
ed official history of the apartheid era
yesterday, describing the nation's for-
mer white leaders as chief perpetrators
of gross human rights violations but
also accusing President Nelson
Mandela's African National Congress
of an array of abuses in its anti-
apartheid struggle.
Overcoming the ANC's eleventh-
hour legal bid to block its release, the
much-anticipated report made public a
hard-hitting and comprehensive por-
trait of 30 years of the 1948-94 period
of white-minority rule. But the report
also hit at the ANC's claim to the
nation's moral high ground. In so
doing, it curried the disfavor of
Mandela's ruling party just as it has the
apartheid-era rulers.
"Many will be upset by this report;"
said Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the
truth commission chair, in handing the

five-volume, 3,500-page report to
Mandela. "Some have sought to dis-
credit it preemptively. ... Fellow South
Africans, accept this report as a way,
an indispensable way of healing, who
we have looked the beast in the eye."
Poet laureate Ted
Hughes dies at 68
LONDON - British poet laureate
Ted Hughes, whose failed marriage to
the tortured American poet Sylvia Plath
earned him the wrath of many femin
but inspired some of his best writing,
died of cancer, it was announced yester-
day. He was 68.
The reclusive poet, ranked by some
critics alongside such 20th-Century
greats as T.S. Eliot and W.H. Auden, died
at his home in Devon on Wednesday.
"After a valiant 18-month fight
against cancer, Ted Hughes died yester-
day. The loss to his family is ines-
timable," Hughes's publishers at Faber
and Faber said.
