design competition was all about," Jackson said, adding that
both professors already helped put together the design package,
which describes the program requirements for the competition.
"We have used (Lockard's) artistic powers to try to capture in
a visual way the language necessary for the memorial. There is
a fine line with being too prescriptive and being creatively open
in your language to create something we cannot even define,"
Jackson said Chaffers made significant contributions in the
writing of the package, and he also worked on the site selection
"He was able to capture that period in our history. The textu-
al summary is Dr. Chaffer's voice," he said.
Chaffers said the memorial will have a three part theme: the
man, the message and the movement.
"It will not be a shrine to Dr. King. He's not that kind of per-
son," Chaffers said.
He also emphasized the importance of having a living memo-
rial. "It must engage each visitor personally. All of your senses
should have been challenged after visiting it. By a living memo-
rial, it should be lasting in terms of timeliness.
Jackson also mentioned the importance of transcendence. He
explained that the message of the memorial should speak to vis-
itors, now and centuries later.
"His message to America and the world will have meaning
for future generations,' Jackson said.
He said the appointments of each University professor to this
committee reflects the progressiveness of the University.
"Michigan has been on the forefront in a number of arenas,"
Chaffers expressed similar thoughts. "The University, in spir-
it, is very much in tune with the deeds and aspirations of Dr.
King from a notion of diversity,"he said. "We are actually cross-
ing lines of race and gender at this very moment"
University President Lee Bollinger announced the appoint-
ments during the University Board of Regents meeting last
"Having two of our faculty members on the board is quite an
honor for the University" he said.
Chaffers said the memorial will be to the north of the
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial near both the Abraham
Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson memorials. Organizers hope to
have construction completed by 2003.

Eight witnesses, including two
University students, were called to testify
that they did not see Alvarez commit any
actions that led the crowd to violence.
Alvarez was at the rally as a member of a
"peacekeeping" force, witnesses said.
The trial will continue today as the
defense hopes to finish calling witness-
es and make its closing arguments.
"I anticipate the trial will be done"
today, Massie said. She expects an out-
come in favor of her client. "I am
extremely confident because (the
defense's) case is extremely weak."
If convicted, Alvarez faces a maxi-
mum sentence of up to 10 years in
prison and/or a $10,000 fine.

Gore, Bradley fight in first 2000 debate
DURHAM. N.H - Arguing all the way to the debate, Al Gore gained an influ-
ential ally yesterday, while Bill Bradley made an issue of the vice president's 1996
fund raising in an increasingly combative Democratic presidential campaign.
Gore and Bradley waged a day's campaign crossfire on their way to the first teI-e-
vised debate of the new year at the University of New Hampshire.
They have debated three times before, harsher in each outing, as front-runner
Gore has tried to fend off the challenger who has gained the pollsters' lead in
veys on the Feb. 1 New Hampshire presidential primary.
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) endorsed Gore yesterday, saying "no one has
fought harder or been a stronger voice for our Democratic priorities." They cam-
paigned together on education in Boston and health care in Portsmouth, two issues
on which the Massachusetts senator, running for re-election himself in 2000,1-a
leading liberal voice in the Senate.
Kennedy said he's convinced that the "the best way to try to get effectivetimi-
versal health care in place, as well as strengthen our education system, as well-as
strengthen our environment," is to nominate Gore.
Bradley discounted the endorsement in advance as a sign of Gore's entrenched
power with the Democratic establishment and said his health care proposal, more
extensive and costlier than Gore's, stands as a major difference between them.,*

Both loft companies, AAA Loft
Express and Ann Arbor Loft Company,
require customers to sign releases.
Rundell said, "We do require a
release but it's only partially legally
binding. If it is our fault that something
happens, the release is not worth as
much as we would like."
But Rebitzke said that out of roughly
200 lofts built by his company, only two
or three customers have had minor
In addition to the release, most loft
companies also provide the customer

properly use their lofts.

also have a safety bar though, so that no

President Jason Taylor said loft safety is
not a concern in the University commu-
"No one has brought the issue of loft
safety to RHA except for an incident
two years ago when someone fell from
their loft. People were asking for
stricter standards for lofts but nothing
was done because housing was putting
in stackable furniture that had safety
rails. We just hope that housing expe-
dites the purchase of stackable furni-
ture," Taylor said.

"I find the vandalism just as offen-
sive as the incident that occurred,"
"Behavior that endangers and humil-
iates students is in violation of every-
thing the Greek community stands for
and I doubt you would find any mem-
ber who condones it," Harper added.
Although she has no evidence of a.
connection between the vandalism and
the alleged hazing, she speculated on a
"I don't know if it's related, but it's
reasonable to assume there is a rela-
tionship between the two," she said.
IFC President Adam Silver, an
Engineering senior, said he did not
believe the vandalism was connected to
the recent controversies at AEPi.
"To draw conclusions is ludicrous,"
Silver said, adding that he felt the com-
bination of events is tragic.
Judge may order end
to Northwest 'sickout'
ST. PAUL, Minn. - A federal judge
was deliberating yesterday considering
a request to order Northwest Airlines
flight attendants to end what the carrier
says is an illegal sickout.
Northwest attorney Timothy
Thornton told Judge Donovan Frank
yesterday that job action by members
of Teamsters Local 2000 was "in the
nature of guerrilla warfare in labor rela-
tions" and must be stopped.
But union attorney Michael Bloom
denied that Local 2000 had sanc-
tioned any job action and said there is
no justification for a temporary
restraining order against the union or
"Where is the evidence that these
flight attendants were not sick?" Bloom
asked. "The numbers do not speak for
