Faculty discusses benefits of divesting $25M in tobacco

TOBACCO
Continued from Page 1
Einhorn said one reason Bollinger is making tobacco
divestment a complicated process may be because he is
worried about politicizing the University.
Bollinger "is worried about the University taking a
position on social issues and acting on that with its
investments," Einhorn said. Barbara MacAdam, head of
library education and information services, said in the
case of tobacco divestment, the public good might
supercede other concerns. "If the community decides

tobacco is such an egregious good in so many bench-
marks, there comes a time when the public good trumps
all other criteria," MacAdam said.
Many faculty members said they were concerned
that the University - respected nationally for its med-
ical and health sciences departments - had funds
invested in tobacco stocks. Public Health Prof.
Kenneth Warner said that since more than half of the
University's money was generated by the health sci-
ences, the tobacco stocks detracted from this goal.
"Nothing prevents death better than tobacco," Warner
added sarcastically.

Many faculty agreed that even though the University
has millions invested in tobacco stocks, the economic
issue is relatively unimportant compared to the moral
and ethical factors.
"Both the president and the CFO are considering this
as a difficult matter of principle," Einhorn said. "They
aren't concerned with the return of investment at all."
Warner said that since the tobacco stocks represent
less than one percent of the University's total invest-
ment, the economic issue is "just a drop in the bucket."
Neither Bollinger nor Kasdin were available for
comment yesterday.

Statistical sampling prohibited in census
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that the,2000 census
cannot use statistical sampling to enhance its accuracy, a decision making it
more likely millions of people will be left out. The 5-4 ruling requires the tra-
ditional nose count to determine how many members of Congress each state
should have.
Left in doubt, however, was whether the sampling the Clinton administratio
favors will be used to determine state-by-state eligibility for $180 billion in feder-
al money each year of the coming decade - or for drawing election districts at all
levels of government.
That may depend on whether the Republican-led Congress provides enough
financing for the Census Bureau.
The nation's highest court ruled that a 1976 federal census law "directly pro-
hibits the use of sampling in the determination of population for the purposes of
apportionment."
White House spokesperson Joe Lockhart called the setback for the Clinton
administration a "limited decision" and noted that the justices did not say sampling

at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house.
Her blood-alcohol level was found to be
0.059, below the 0.1 level needed to be
considered legally drunk.
Some of the fraternity houses did not
get the turnout they would have liked on
Sunday night, but members said they
don't blame the low numbers on the
recent scrutiny of the Greek system or
the increased focus on alcohol.
"We didn't have as many (men at rush)
as expected. I think that is more due to
the weather and lack of publicity," Kappa
Sigma Vice President Jake Kurily said.
Some potential rushees did not agree
with this optimistic view. "After every-
thing that happened I just didn't want to
deal with what joining a fraternity now
would mean," said LSA first-year stu-
dent Jason Rosen, who considered rush-
ing but said he changed his mind in
recent weeks.
Since AAPD raided and handed out
citations at the Beta Theta Pi, Sigma Nu
and Theta Chi fraternities last semester,
IFC has been heavily enforcing its alco-
hol policy this semester.
"Opens have never been allowed. It is
now being enforced that no one is ran-
domly allowed in at the door. Each per-
son must be invited by a member of the
hosting party and appear on a guest list,"
Reddy said.
Some members said the lack of the
open parties did not deter potential
rushees.
"Fall rush opens are important because
they make guys come to the house, but
winter rush is mainly word of mouth and
I don't believe that the absence of opens
has hindered guys from getting down to
the house" Ruggnetta said.
Following AAPD raids, the national
chapters of the involved fraternities sanc-
tioned their chapters with varying
degrees of severity.

"Alcohol can only be consumed in the
private rooms of members of legal age.
All social events must be in conjunction
with a third party vendor," said Erv
Johnson, director of communications for
Beta Theta Pi. "Each member must take
place in the Beta talking prevention
workshop, perform 10 hours of commu-
nity service for an alcohol education ser-
vice. The chapter must perform campus-
wide alcohol awareness events. Failure to
comply with any of these provision will
result in the chapter becoming alcohol-
free."
Sigma Nu's nationals have been work-
ing with their chapters to educate mem-
bers on the dangers of alcohol. "Alcohol
is something serious for university stu-
dents. Our goal is to help and educate the
students," said David Glassman, nation-
al director of insurance and risk reduc-
tion for Sigma Nu fraternity.
In order to regain their full ability to
have the functions and privileges of the
chapter, members of Sigma Nu were
required to adhere to several rules.
"A number of individuals are required
to take place in TIPs (Training and
Intervention Procedures), a University
program to deal with responsible man-
agement of alcohol," Glassman said. "All
member under the age of 21 must partic-
ipate in Alcohol 101, a CD ROM pro-
gram to review choices that accompany
the uses of alcohol, including driving and
sexual assault. They also have to develop
their own written policy to maintain
national, University and Ann Arbor
(alcohol) policy."
Students who still opted to rush cam-
pus fraternities expressed excitement
about being part of the Greek system.
"It doesn't matter to me that they are
being so strict with the opens and alco-
hol. Being part of a fraternity is more
than parties. It is about being with your
friends," said LSA first-year student
David Kaplan, who plans to attend rush
events at various houses.

out on the runway for that long,"
Johnson said.
LSA first-year student Lauren
Riback and her family were on the
same flight back from Puerto Vallarta
as Perlman. Riback said the passengers
were not given much information
regarding the status of the situation.
"We were only told that we were
number 27 in line for an available
gate," Riback said.
According to Consumer's Digest, the
Detroit Metro Airport rates as one of five
most troubling airports in the continental
United States for pilots. The report
described the airport as having "spaghet-
ti runways and poor markings."
LSA first-year student Aimee Kraft
traveled on another airline the same day
as Riback. Kraft said she received no
compensation for similar circum-
stances. Her plane sat on the runway
for more than two hours.
"They kept the seatbelt sign on for
the entire time. The crew was also flat
out rude," Kraft said.
Medical first-year student Brian
Eisner traveled Jan. 2 from Miami to
Detroit on Northwest but was unable to
land at the Detroit Metro Airport.
Eisner's plane landed in Lansing instead.
"We were told that there was no
room to land and no room at the gates"
Eisner said.
Eisner and the other passengers on
his flight were eventually bused from
Lansing to the Detroit airport. In addi-
tion, the passengers were confronted by
luggage problems.
"I arrived seven hours late because
of the whole ordeal," Eisner said.

Three to be tried in
Texas murder case
JASPER, Texas -After he was mur-
dered last June in a grotesque racial
crime that seized world attention -
after he was chained and dragged
behind a pickup truck along a narrow
ribbon of backwoods pavement until
his head and right arm were torn off in
one piece - and after his closed-coffin
wake, James Byrd was buried in
Jasper's old City Cemetery.
He was laid to rest in what had always
been, first by law, then by tradition, the
black section of the 163-year-old grave-
yard, an area set off by a rusted, wrought
iron fence. The ancient barrier, parts of it
bent and fallen, was a vestige of Jim
Crow tangled in weeds, a symbol of the
racist mindset that authorities say led
three white men to murder Byrd in what
amounted to a lynching, for no reason
beyond blind hatred.
Now, as the world's eye again turns
to this racially diverse city of 8,000 in
the East Texas pine woods, with the
start of jury selection yesterday in the

to amend the 1976 law and support tf
first of three death-penalty trials stem-
ming from the murder, the fence is
gone, scrapped. Its removal last
Wednesday says much about what has
happened here since the predawn
hours of June 7, when Byrd was dri-
ven into the forest, pummeled a*
stomped, then chained and dragged to
his death.
Man receives new,
hand in transplant
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A man
whose left hand was blown off while
playing with a powerful firecracker
13 years ago received the first han
transplant in the United State
Hours later, the new hand was pink
and warm.
The 14 1/2-hour surgery, completed
yesterday morning, was the second
such transplant ever.
But doctors cautioned that the
patient, Matthew David Scott, had a
high risk of blood clots and possibly
other complications in the first 24
hours.

U.S. missiles strike
southern Iraq
BASRA, Iraq - U.S. missiles
slammed into residential neighbor-
hoods in southern Iraq yesterday,
demolishing sturdy, stone-walled
homes as they killed at least I1 people,
Iraqi officials said.
U.S. officials said its Air Force and
Navy jets fired at air defense systems
in response to "threats by anti-aircraft
artillery fire" and by four Iraqi war-
planes flying south of the 33rd parallel
in violation of the no-flight ban.
Pentagon officials said it was likely
that U.S. jets targeting the Iraqi air
defense installations misfired and that
at least two missiles may have resulted
in civilian deaths in and around the city
of Basra. Spokesperson Navy Capt.
Michael Doubleday said U.S. officials
were "still assessing the site damage."
The missiles hit five areas of south-
ern Iraq, including the working-class
al-Jumhuriya neighborhood on the out-
skirts of Basra, Iraqi officials said.
Several homes in that neighborhood
were destroyed, their roofs caved in.

Broken dishes and kitchen utensils
were strewn among the rubble.
Civilians worked late into the night to
clean the debris from the morning
strike.
At least 144 dead in
Colombia quake
BOGOTA, Colombia - An earth-
quake struck western Colombia yester-
day, killing at least 144 people and
injuring more than 900 as it toppled
buildings across the country's coffe-
growing heartland, civil defense ofl
cials said.
The early afternoon quake had a pre-
liminary magnitude of 6, according to
the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden,
Colo.
Its epicenter was located in western
Valle del Cauca state, 140 miles west of
the capital, Bogota.
The death and damage toll appeared
to be highest in Armenia, Pereira and
Calarca - three cities near the epicen-
ter.Cy
