Student in serious condition a ter fall

EMU
Continued from Page 1A
EMU spokesperson Pamela Young
said students living in residence halls
who are of legal drinking age are
allowed to have alcoholic beverages in
their rooms but are not allowed to have
kegs or serve alcohol to minors.
Wilber, 22, had purchased two
,.kegs for the residence hall party,
which was attended by several
_minors. Students who attended the
,,party said Wilber had been seen
drinking.

Wilber's fall comes at the close of an
academic year in which alcohol related
deaths have plagued campuses
statewide. In October, LSA first-year
student Courtney Cantor died after
falling from her sixth-floor Mary
Markley Residence Hall window, hours
after she was seen drinking at a frater-
nity party.
-Two Ferris State University stu-
dents and one Michigan State
University student have also died in
alcohol related incidents this school
year.
Mounayyer said Wilber suddenly

departed from the party when EMU
police pounded on the door and asked
for Wilber by name. Mounayyer said
the party was "controlled" and had
been going on for about two and a half
hours when the police arrived at the
scene.
Mounayyer said the police issued
minor in possession tickets,. to
minors at the party who had been
drinking. Mounayyer said no one
thought about where Wilber had
gone because they thought he .had
locked himself in his room until a
first-floor resident informed them
that Wilber had fallen out of the
window.
First-year student Scott
Stadtmiller said he was shocked to
see his friend sitting in "some kids"
dorm room.
"He was complaining of his legs
hurting," Stadtmiller said. "I was mad at
him. I couldn't understand why he did

it."
Wilber has been listed at St. Joseph
Mercy Hospital in serious condition
since he was admitted Tuesday.
A patient in serious condition is con-
sidered acutely ill with a questionable
prognosis.
Vital signs of the patient may be
unstable but there is a chance for
improved prognosis.
Although Young said the university is
still investigating the case, a determina-
tion on possible sanctions has not been
made.
"Based on the information in the
police report, disciplinary action could
be appropriate"Young said.
Young added that if disciplinary
action is taken it would be handled by
the EMU student judicial office, which
would determine if sanctions were
appropriate. Sanctions, Young said,
could range from anything from a ver-
bal warning to expulsion.

AROUND THE NATION
Starr blasts Independent Counsel law
WASHINGTON - The man who touched off a national controversy over the
Independent Counsel Act illustrated yesterday why reforming the institution has
become such a maze of contradictions and blind alleys.
Independent counsel Kenneth Starr, testifying before a Senate committee c
sidering whether to revise the law or scrap it altogether, blasted the statute for 1dw
ing to investigations that are too open-ended, too costly to run and subject to harsh
political attack.
"No matter what the Congress decides, no matter what microsurgical precision
is applied to fine-tune the statute, these problems will endure," Starr testified.
Yet Starr made clear he still intends to continue his broad-ranging, five-year
Whitewater investigation, pursue possible criminal prosecution of President Clinton
after he leaves the White House and take whatever political heat it generates.
Critical Democrats blamed Starr, more than the law, for what they said was his
mistreatment of convicted Whitewater conspirator Susan McDougal as well as for-
mer White House intern Monica Lewinsky, whose affair with Clinton led to the
president's impeachment.
Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) asked Starr why he should not leave office in-
diately under "this constitutional monstrosity of a statute" - and even Republicans
expressed dismay.

Post offices to extend
hours for tax season
WASHINGTON - For millions
of procrastinating Americans, it's
time to face the music: Income tax
returns must be postmarked or filed
electronically by midnight tonight,
and that's expected to mean 40 mil-
lion last-minute state and federal
returns.
Hundreds of larger post offices
around the country will be open late
to accommodate the crunch, many of
the biggest until midnight local
time. And taxpayers who file elec-
tronically have until the last minute
to zap their returns to the Internal
Revenue Service.
A reminder: If you can't finish in
time, file for an extension using
Form 4868 and pay the IRS as much
of your estimated bill as possible to
avoid interest and penalties. You can
also pay by MasterCard, American
Express or Discover card by calling
1-888-2PAYTAX - for a 2.5 per-
cent fee.

The IRS expects to receive 126
million individual income tax
returns this year, with total income
taxes projected at $828.6 billion.
That's just under half the $1.7 tril-
lion in overall federal tax collecti9
used to pay for everything from
cruise missiles to highway bridges to
food stamps.
House OKs review
of census results
WASHINGTON - Plans for the
2000 census sank further into a par-
tisan quagmire yesterday as a
sharply divided House Of
Representatives approved a mea-
sure allowing local governments to
review and challenge whatever fig-
ures emerge from the decennial
population count.
The bill is the Republican answer
to Democratic efforts to use a
method known as statistical sam-
pling to correct chronic errors in
the traditional door-to-door he
count.

Mala sian deputy
jaile for six years
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -
The landmark verdict against former
Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim
could energize opposition politics in
this Southeast Asian nation. The one-
time heir-apparent received six years in
prison yesterday.
The term bars Anwar from politics
for at least five years after his release
from prison. He had repeatedly
declared his innocence, saying he was
the victim of a political conspiracy to
eliminate his challenger.
There were gasps in the courtroom
and protests in the streets at the sentence,
although Anwar seemed unmoved.
"My body may be incarcerated," he
said, "but my soul is free."
Azizah Ismail, Anwar's wife and
now the leader of his political reform
movement, fought tears as she spoke to
reporters outside the courthouse.
"Our family is sad. My children are
deprived of their father," she said. "But
we don't regret it. We feel proud with

my husband's stand and the principle
we all fight for.'
Azizah, who has tried to keep her
husband's crusade for political cha@
alive since he was jailed last
September, pressed ahead yesterday in
attempts to forge consensus, meeting
with leaders of the Islamic and centrist
parties.
Fro disappear due
to ilobal warning
An abrupt climate shift associa@
with global warming appears to have
caused the mysterious disappearance of
20 frog species in Costa Rica,
researchers reported yesterday.
The frog declines, which included
the infamous extinction of the Golden
Toad, coincided with a sudden reduc-
tion in moisture levels on the continen-
tal divide atop Monteverde in Costa
Rica's central highlands, according to J.
Alan Pounds, of the University f
Miami, and his colleagues.
