For the most part, the policy says,
smoking is prohibited in all

University buildings and "smokers
are expected to stay a reasonable dis-
tance from building entrances, in
order not to interfere with access or
the rights of others." But "smoking
will be permitted for controlled
research, education or religious cere-
monial purposes, with prior approval
of the dean or direct responsible for

"Education is necessary and wear-

Miller said she couldn't otherwise

Visibility Week, but was ecstatic to see
all the red shirts worn in the Diag

"That's why I love Ann Arbor so
much," Penhorwood said. "The com-
munity is so supportive."
Penhorwood, a gay student at the
University, also said red is a good

Dems push for investigation into Starr
WASHINGTON - Congressional Democrats yesterday urged Attorney General
Janet Reno to move quickly in investigating new allegations that independent
counsel Kenneth Starr's office misled her about the genesis of the Monica
Lewinsky investigation.
Newly disclosed records show that when Starr sought to secure approval fi
Reno in January 1998 to look into the Lewinsky matter, his prosecutors told Reno's
aides they had "no contacts" with lawyers for Paula Jones, who was suing
President Clinton for sexual harassment.
But the independent counsel's office has acknowledged that just days earlier an
attorney working closely with the Jones camp had contacted a Starr prosecutor
regarding Clinton's involvement with a White House intern. Starr's attorneys say
that was when they first learned of allegations that Clinton had encouraged.the
intern to lie about their affair.
While Starr's critics have accused him of failing to volunteer potential conflicts
surrounding his investigation, the new disclosures represent the first indication that
his prosecutors may have actively misled authorities when they sought to exp=I
their probe.
Officials with Starr's office have steadfastly denied any collusion with lawyers
for Jones.
