Dry fraternities may become more common

house, there is no alcohol. If they have a party at any
other house which is not substance free, they can have
alcohol. As long as they follow national fraternity
guidelines, they can do whatever is allowed," Mountz
Hockman also said that removing alcohol from chap-
ter houses does not mean that the fraternity can not serve
alcohol at parties held in other locations.
"By removing alcohol from chapter property we are
not saying that our members can not make their own
choices," Hockman said.
Theta Chi Executive Director Dave Westol said the
national organization, including its Ann Arbor chap-
ter, has adopted a plan to have all houses and facilities
alcohol-free by July 1, 2003.
"We are part of ... a risk management consortium
of 50 national fraternities and sororities which have all
agreed to follow several alcohol policies," Westol said.
"They are basically no open parties, the chapter can't

provide alcohol, they either have to have it BYOB or
hire bartenders and there must be limits in the size of
the event"
IFC President Adam Silver said he does not believe
that dry chapter houses will dissuade students from
rushing and pledging the fraternities.
"People look to join a brotherhood for the people
who they will be surrounded by," Silver said. "I don't
think that it will affect rush at all."
Westol said he agrees that rush will not be affected by
the initiative to remove alcohol from Theta Chi's chapter
"Our expectation is that for every guy we lose,
another says 'I like this.' This way the house stays
clean, the alumni give more money and the guys will
be a significant cut above some who get in now who
join purely for alcohol," Westol said.
The Social Responsibility Committee, the organiza-
tion responsible to ensure alcohol policies are obeyed by
all member organizations, will not be responsible for
checking to be sure alcohol is not present in substance-
free houses.


"Substance-free houses are implemented by the
individual organizations of the national fraternity. It is
not with the IFC to monitor that," Mountz said.
Hockman said that the substance-free chapters of
Delta Sig will be enforced by "landlords, alumni who
advise the chapter and the chapter itself."
Although IFC will not be regulating substance-free
chapter houses, all fraternities and sororities on cam-
pus must still adhere to the IFC and Panhellenic
Association's Social Environment Management
According to the policy, "no bulk quantities of alco-
hol such as kegs, party balls, punch bowls or any com-
munal alcohol container of more than two liters are
permitted at any social event" In addition, "the host-
ing member chapter(s) will require all those attending
the event to present proof of legal age in order to con-
sume alcoholic beverages."
According to the policy, all sponsoring organizations
must also provide food and alternative beverages, other
than water, in plain view and be of a "quantity reason-
able" with the potential attendance.

"It would seem to me that it is irre-
sponsible to spend tax payer money on
enforcing this ordinance, but also
defending this ordinance in the courts,"
said Tom Whitehouse, Ann Arbor
Board of Realtors president.
A majority of the speakers during the
public hearing were Ann Arbor realtors
who urged the council not vote for the
proposal because of the numerous
restrictions on signage in the proposed
ordinance. The realtors were threaten-
ing to sue the city if the ordinance
passed, but not all of the realtors who
spoke were against the amendment.
"I very much regret the Ann Arbor
Board of Realtors threat to sue if the
ordinance is passed," said Eunice Burns,
a realtor with Charles Rienhart realty
and a former city council member.

WRC, they will pass their recommenda-
ov tion to Bollinger for consideration.
Committee member Martha Johnson
optional Chaddock said the committee is "totally in
re sync with (SOLE's) goals" but added she
was not willing to consider an early vote.
"We are working very hard. We take
aca this very seriously'" said Chaddock,
apply, manager of University Trademarks and
Licensing, adding that the committee
has not been working to meet SOLES
Feb. 2 ultimatum for the University to
endorse the WRC.
* The policy will greatly affect the
University and therefore needs to be
thoroughly examined, Chamberlin said.
® ® If Bollinger does not sign the WRC
by the ultimatum date, SOLE members
said they will take action, but would
not go into details on what action they
could take. Last March, 30 SOLE
members stormed and occupied
Bollinger's office for 51 hours.

education is not likely to be stressed,
Hansen said, who serves on the House
Education Committee. "We haven't had a
higher education issue all year:"'he said.
The affirmative action question that
lingers in the air - especially at the
20 University - is going to be answered by
40 the courts, not the legislative or executive
branches of government, Hansen said.
Brater said Engler has ignored mental
health issues the past year and during a
-9669! press conference yesterday, Brater called
for Engler to take action on the issue.
-r - 1 Citing a recent report from the
Michigan Department of Community
Health, Brater said 34 percent of
inmates from three state prisons suffer

from mental illnesses. Engler closed 15
of the state's 21 mental institutions dur-
ing his administration.
"When you've turned your jails into
mental hospitals, the state of the state
1 isn't good," Brater said.

spurn airport survey
American group is criticizing a
Transportation Department plan to ask
airline passengers about their ethnicity
and religion - an effort intended to test
the level of discrimination felt by fliers.
"When we start down the road of ask-
ing people to provide this kind of infor-
mation, where does it take us?" asked
James Zogby, president of the Arab
American Institute, a Washington-
based Arab-American interest group.
The department intends to gather the
ethnic and religious background and
citizenship information to help it deter-
mine if passengers feel they were sin-
gled out for scrutiny by security offi-
cials for no good reason.
In light of the concerns voiced by the
Arab American Institute, department
spokesperson Bill Mosley said yester-
day that no final decision has been
reached on whether the surveys will be

Clinton urges Syria to resume talks
WASHINGTON - President Clinton talked by telephone with Syrian President
Hafez Assad for almost an hour yesterday in a determined effort to persuade Syria
to resume interrupted Middle East peace talks.
Clinton's call to the wily Syrian autocrat came as Secretary of States
Madeleine Albright predicted that Israel and Syria eventually will overcome
half a century of animosity and sign a formal peace treaty, despite the inde*
nite postponement of high-level negotiations that had been scheduled to
resume today.
Albright and nongovernmental Middle East experts said Assad's objective ir
delaying the talks was almost certainly to gain procedural advantage, not to torpe-
do the peace process, which seems closer to success than at any time since the cre-
ation of the Israeli state in 1948.
"The logic of peace has become compelling" for both Syria and Israel,
Albright said. "Their leaders will have to take hard, fateful, even painful deci-
sions, but they have increasingly come to understand that there is no better

carp began leaping seven feet out of the
water and thrashing about on shore.
Before long, dead carp and minnows
were piling up on the banks.
Hundreds of thousands of fish have
collected along a 50-mile stretch of t
White River since the water was po
soned five weeks ago by what investi-
gators suspect was an industrial polish-
ing agent used at an auto parts plant.
"It is like someone dropped a nuclear
bomb:',said Josh McDermott, who lives
near the river. "The fish had jumped six
or seven feet onto the shore. It was like
they were jumping out of the water to
try and get away from whatever it is".

Indonesian religious
v1olence continues
MATARAM, Indonesia - As an
Islamic prayer call echoed from a near-
by mosque on the balmy tourist island
of Lombok, a Muslim mob ransacked a
house abandoned by its terrified
Christian owners.
"God is great!" a teen-age boy
screamed as his friends pushed a car
out of the garage and turned it over in
the street. The crowd scattered when a
squad of riot police arrived.
Muslim mobs targeted Lombok's
Christian minority for a second day yes-
terday, burning and ransacking homes in
the main town of Mataram and forcing
hundreds of tourists to flee. Security
forces fired warning shots to stop one
gang from storning a police station,
where 500 Christians had taken sheltered.
Yesterday's violence came a day after
mobs burned and desecrated a dozen
churches and other Christian places of
worship in Lombok, 670 miles east of

Some fear religious intolerance,
which has gripped another part of east-
ern Indonesia for more than a year, has
taken root in Lombok and could sweep
across the sprawling Southeast Asi
nation, putting at risk its transition
Japanese cult admits
leader's tie to attack
TOKYO -Nearly five years after a
lethal poison gas attack on the Tokyo
subway, Aum Supreme Truth leaders
admitted yesterday for the first time
that cult founder Shoko Asahara wUa
probably involved in that mass killin
and other crimes.
In a communique sent to news orga-
nizations and posted on the group's
Website, cult leaders announced that
Aum will change its name, "dramati-
cally" reforming its teachings and sell-
ing off $952,000 worth of property to
compensate its victims. Twelve people
died in the satin gas attack.
