Council to head up letter-writing
"campaign to stop UN. sanctions

Say cheese

Residents of Ann Arbor said they feel the situation
eserves local, as well as international, attention.
,."I think this is a city issue," Ann Arbor resident Elizabeth
Barlow said, adding that while she does not support sanc-
tions, her tax dollars are still going to the defense budget for
-his purpose.
University philosophy Prof. Eric Lormand said he also
opposes the sanctions.
-"Our income taxes go to the military," Lormand said. "My
-rights are being violated as a resident of Ann Arbor."
This is a democracy and "citizens at the local level need to
-_peak up on issues of national policy," said council member
~Tobi Hanna-Davies, also a member of the Interfaith Council.
Several city council members who spoke in support of the
solution referred back to a visit by former UN assistant sec-
.retary general Dennis Halliday, who served as chief UN relief

coordinator for Iraq. Halliday came to the University last
month to speak about the sanctions. Halliday said then that he
resigned in protest of the Iraqi sanctions, explaining they are
immoral and are destroying people.
Hanna-Davies said that Halliday's resignation is a strong
statement against the sanctions. Hanna-Davies said that
Halliday made recommendations that "would be a much
more sane and more humane way" to deal with Iraq.
Council member Chris Kolb said he was voting to pass the
resolution for personal reasons. Kolb, who has friends in Ann
Arbor with family in Iraq, said that during the Gulf War he
saw the pain his friends had to suffer through.
Now that local groups have been successful in getting their
resolution passed, they will be working to further their campaign.
Organizations will be "trying to build grass roots support among
religious, medical, veteran and educational community to sup-
port the overall campaign against the sanctions," Thomson said.
Gubmleton is scheduled to speak at the First Presbyterian
Church of Ann Arbor on April 19.

shortened.
LSA first-year student e
Ribbens said an extended academic
calendar is not worth havintfewer
vacation days.
"I wouldn't want more study-we if
that would mean we would have to cut
into break," Ribbens said. :-
She said students utilize tl Study
day in different ways - some for
intense studying, others as a time to
relax.
"It's up to the individual," k imis
said.
McElvain said the University's study
period set-up has been in place florat
least 15 years.
While University exams traditionally
start late in the school week and-con-
tinue into the following week, students
at Michigan State Universiy ake
exams during a one-week period, laid
MSU associate registrar Vtlld
McMillan, adding that there°hasn't
been much student interest in cha-1ng
the system at MSU.
McMillan, who started at MSU as a
student in 1965, said the school'sexam
system has basically remained the sa'me
in the years since his graduation.
But McMillan said during the
1992-93 academic year, Michigan
State's exam week was structured
similarly to the traditional one-at ihe
University.
"No one was really comfortable with
that system," McMillan said. -
After that experiment, Miehi an
State reverted to the Monday ,o
Friday exam set-up.

LOTTERY

many of the ticket purchasers are stu-
dents," said an Ann Arbor-Saline Road
Meijer store employee who did not
want her name used.
I If no one wins the pot this time, it
.s estimated, depending on ticket
sales, that Friday's jackpot could
reach more than $200 million.
The largest pot in U.S. history was
won by 13 factory workers in July
1998, with a winning multi-state
Powerball ticket worth $295.7 million.
But even if you win the Big Game,

"I'd give part to my dad because he's
played the lottery for 30 years .."

Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura in Minneapolis yesterday.

don't expect to keep all the money. Uncle
Sam will take about half of the winnings,
even without ever buying a lottery ticket.
Michigan lottery prizes are subject to
federal, state and local income taxes.
For all winnings exceeding $5,000,
the lottery is required to withhold an
estimated 28 percent for Federal taxes
and 4.4 percent for state taxes.

This doesn't include any income
taxes that will also be required, as the
$190 million places citizens in the 50
percent tax bracket.
But LSA sophomore Michael Yun
said he doesn't mind.
"If I won, I'd fix the rust spots on my
1989 car with 170,000 miles,"Yun said.
"Maybe I'd get a new radio too."

Finances have been a cause for con-
sternation in the Athletic Department
recently. In February, University
President Lee Bollinger formed a com-
mittee to closely examine the finances
of the department, which has long
enjoyed a great deal of autonomy. At
February's University Board of Regents
meeting, where the committee's forma-

tion was announced, the decision was
made to hire Anderson Consulting to
assist the four-person group. Recently,
that decision was made official.
"We need to ensure that our athletic
department is financially sound over
the long term," said Robert Kasdin, the
committee's chair, and the University's
chief financial officer.
The committee is expected to finish
examining the department's finances
throughout the spring and summer
months.
