Anti-freeze, cell phones

shovel, a cellular phone, antifreeze sol-
vent, jumper cables and extra wind-
shield wiper fluid.
Thack said that although it is essen-
tial to keep these and other supplies -
such as kitty litter for traction control, a
flashlight and a blanket - in the car,
drivers often forget to do so. "There's
more information than ever before avail-
able today" about preventative measures,
Thack said. "But people tend to get
caught up in everyday things, especially
around the holiday season."
Keith Johnson, a service foreman in
the University's Parking and
Transportation Services, said it is also
important for drivers to check their
wiper blades and make sure all fluid
levels are appropriate.

Reed said she checks her car's fluids
at least every week and makes sure
nothing is breaking, even though it can
be rather annoying in the cold. "It's hard
to do, especially in this weather, but it's
necessary to have a car," Reed said.
Johnson also stressed the importance
of making sure the tires had a deep
tread, adding that now is the time to
replace them if they seem to be inade-
quate. He encouraged drivers also to
use all-weather engine oils, recom-
mending grades 5w30 or I0w30 for
normal driving conditions.
While there are many precautions,
motorists must remember driving
defensively can prevent many problems
before they start.
"We have the ability now to be better
informed," Thack said. "Just use your
head and be prepared for the unexpect-
ed."

this week if they will ask for any of
the charges to be authorized, he
added.
George Cantor received a call from
AAPD on Friday night informing
him of the morning's raid.
George Cantor said he hired a
lawyer, Darrel Perry, several weeks
ago but had not been in contact with
him since then until these latest
developments.
"The decision of what action to
take next will be made by him,"
George Cantor said. He said the fra-
ternity is the obvious target in this
case and he is unsure if the Chi
Omega sorority is liable in the inci-
dent as well.
Perry has a background in engi-
neering and may try to re-enact the
events leading to Courtney Cantor's
death to answer any questions regard-
ing the safety of her residence hall
room, George Cantor said.
The AAPD sergeant said police
determined through interviews with
the involved individuals that alcohol
served at the party was purchased
from the Meijer store on Carpenter
Road.
AAPD acquired surveillance
videotapes from that store showing
five fraternity members - all of
whom police say were underage -
buying alcohol on Oct. 15. Friday's
search warrant request says they paid
for the $347.07 purchase with a fra-
ternity check and used false identifi-

cation to obtain the alcohol.
The warrant request also states that
Meijer cashier Colleen Burga told
AAPD Sgt. Tom Seyfried that the
"event stands out in her memory
because the young men bought every
bottle of champagne in the store,"
plus hard liquor and beer.
George Cantor said the use of a
fraternity check to pay for such a
large quantity of alcohol was "as stu-
pid as I could possibly imagine." But
he said he doesn't blame the cashier
for accepting a fake ID.
"I'm not asking the store clerk to
be an investigator," Cantor said.
"Kids look pretty much the same if
they are 19 to 21. I can't fault
(Meijer) for doing what they did."
Specifics on when the store
released the videotapes to the AAPD
were unavailable, but Tom Kulpa,
director of the Meijer store on Ann
Arbor-Saline Road, said he believes
"the tapes were probably turned over
very early on in the process."
"There were probably hundreds of
tapes that they had to go through,"
Kulpa said.
Washtenaw County Assistant
Prosecuting Attorney Joseph Burke
declined to comment Saturday on the
latest developments because the
investigation is still ongoing.
Phi Delta Theta president Mike
Novick, an LSA sophomore, and fra-
ternity members at the house also
refused to comment.

Easley and the Associated Press

AROUNDTHE NATION(
Clinton to propose land-saving bill
WASHINGTON - The Clinton administration will propose dramatic increases
in spending to preserve open spaces by expanding federal land purchases while
giving millions of dollars to states for urban parks and land conservation.
Officials in the White House, Interior Department and other agencies we
putting together a package that envisions spending between $900 million and $.
billion a year in open-spaces initiatives, according to administration officials.
Some details of the environmental package, which will be part of President
Clinton's fiscal 2000 budget proposal, have yet to be worked out, the officials said.
Internal debate continued on exactly how much money to request, they said.
Vice President Al Gore is to unveil the first installment - a series of actions
aimed at reducing urban sprawl and improving "quality of life" - in a speech
today.
Gore's proposal would provide at least $100 million a year, mostly in the form
of grants to states, for building community parks and green areas and protecting
environmentally sensitive areas from urban development.
In addition to grants funneled through states, Gore's so-called "livable comm
nities initiative" is expected to include a package of tax incentives for preservii
farmland, suburban green spaces and parkland as well as incentives to reduce traf-
fic congestion and counter uncontrolled development.

Interactive center to
open in Washington
WASHINGTON - A $2 million
interactive center will open on the
grounds of the Washington Monument
next month and remain in place until
Labor Day 2000, adding a temporary
attraction to the Mall and completing the
National Park Service's ambitious plans
for the renovation of the historic obelisk.
The center, a state-of-the-art facility
donated by Discovery Communications
Inc., will focus on Washington the man,
the city and the monument. The opening
is set for mid-February on the grounds
near 15th Street and Constitution
Avenue, where a temporary steel struc-
ture with a blue canopy will be erected.
An announcement on the center is
planned for today.
The monument is expected to be open
to the public for most of the renovation,
which will begin in earnest in March
and be completed by May 2000. The
center will be an additional attraction to
tourists, more than 2,000 of whom visit
the obelisk on any given day, not count-

ing the many others who traverse the 41
acres on which the monument sits.
The private sector's role in the renova-
tion of the landmark was already signif-
icant before this latest contribution -
more than two-thirds of the estimat
$9.4 million project is coming from co
porate sponsors and others.
Gasoline prices
continue to plummet
CAMARILLO, Calif - Gasoline
prices continued to drop at the pump
as supply outpaced demand, an
industry analyst said yesterday.
The average retail price for a
grades, including taxes, was $1.0
per gallon on Friday. That was down
about a half-cent over the past three
weeks, according to the Lundberg
Survey of 10,000 stations nation-
wide.
The price fell below the all-time
low of nearly $1.04 reached last
month, thanks to an oil glut com-
pounded by lowered demand from
economies hit by financial crises. 0

AROUND THE WORLD

Strenuous cease fire
continues in Kosovo
START TRG, Yugoslavia -
Yugoslav armored vehicles and
troops stood on alert near this north-
ern village yesterday while interna-
tional monitors tried to avert an
explosion of the Kosovo crisis, urg-
ing ethnic Albanian rebels to free
eight captive soldiers.
Reflecting fears that the talks' fail-
ure could prompt an all-out govern-
ment offensive, NATO Secretary-
General Javier Solana appealed in
Brussels, Belgium, for the soldiers'
release and called on both sides to
show restraint.
A spokesperson for the Kosovo moni-
tors expressed cautious optimism the
mediation would succeed in heading off
a military showdown.
Still, there was no sign last night of a
resolution of the weekend-long talks.
Yugoslav Army forces pulled back
their armor a half-mile yesterday, a
monitors' spokesperson said, in an
apparent signal of cooperation with
negotiations.

The rebel Kosovo Liberation Army
issued a statement last night saying it
would release the captives only when
international mediators work out
agreement which includes "our soldie
and civilians." The rebels also said they
will respect the cease-fire except when
they have to protect civilians and them-
selves.
blames strikes
on audis, Kuwaitis
CAIRO, Egypt - Iraq stepped u*
denunciations of Saudi Arabia an
Kuwait yesterday as part of an emerg-
ing tactic to discredit its two chief crit-
ics within the Arab world by portraying
them as traitors and U.S. puppets.
Foreign Minister Mohammed Said
Sahaf said at a news conference in
Baghdad that hundreds of strikes
against Iraq during December's four-
day U.S.-British air campaign were
launched from Saudi and Kuwaiti air-
space, making the two Arab states full
responsible for the "aggression."
