"I plan to recommend (to the senior
athletic staff) that we look into that. I
suspect that we would start by trying
to identify what our current practices
lzie," Tompkins said. "The obviously
easy answer is to say, 'send all teams
by University buses with drivers' but
that's no guarantee of safety," he said.
Laronica Conway, a spokeswoman
for the National Collegiate Athletic
Association, said universities without
policies for athlete transportation do
nog violate NCAA regulations.
"We don't have any (transportation)
standards per say. It is up to the indi-
vidual institutions as to how they get
to an event. We do designate how they
travel to championship events because
we haveto reimburse them,"she said.
But Conway said if universities are

concerned with the issue of transporta-
tion, the NCAA is able to help.
"If something occurs and an institu-
tion is concerned, they can bring their
concerns to us. We work for the mem-
bership so it's up to schools to deter-
mine if it's a problem and if it's
something they want to look into fur-
ther," she said.
Yet, coaches say that the safety of
athletes traveling to and from events is
not usually a problem.
"We primarily go by bus," said
Geoff Zahn, head coach of the Univer-
sity's baseball team. "We've been lost
a couple of times, but that's it."
Madej said he believes many
schools may now examine their poli-
cies. "This is something that has some-
times been overlooked and it's a shame
that the time when an accident occurs
might be when schools take a look at
changing their policies," he said.

But Bush campaign officials specu-
lated that independent voters will not
turn exclusively to McCain.
"Governor Bush has a strong record
in Texas for attracting independent
voters," Lasher said.
But it is the influence of Michigan
Gov. John Engler - Bush's state
campaign chair - that has some
analysts predicting McCain will have
a "tough" time winning over state
Republicans.
Engler has "a whole network of
people who are willing, ready and
able," University visiting political
science Prof. Margaret Howard
said.
"The Bush-and-Engler machine is a
machine that has a lot of money,"
Patru said.

To ward off a defeat by McCain,
Bush has had to increase his cam-
paign efforts, alter his campaign
strategy, react to more pressing
issues and agree to participate in
more debates than he was willing to
earlier this year.
"He was acting like the heir appar-
ent with all that money and now he's
got a fight on his hands" Howard said.
"Now he has to be more down and
dirty."
When Democrats head to the polls
in Michigan's March 11 caucus,
Republicans and independents will not
have an opportunity to influence the
decision.
The Democratic caucus is closed,
meaning only declared Democrats can
vote.
Anyone who votes in Tuesday's pri-
mary is not eligible to participate in
the Democratic caucus.

Microsoft to unveil Windows 2000
SAN FRANCISCO - In its biggest and most important launch of a product
since the introduction of Windows 95 five years ago, Microsoft will today
unveil Windows 2000, an enormously complex program the company hopes,
will help solidify its position in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
The long-awaited program has been more than three years in the makingad
cost an estimated Si billion in development costs. The program itself is one ofth*
largest works of software ever commercially marketed, amounting to as manyas
40 million lines of "code," or instructions written in computer language.
But its introduction has been nothing to rival the full-scale circus that accomp-
nied the launch of Windows 95, a dramatically improved consumer product that
had buyers lining up at computer shops to be the first owners on their blocks.
This launch has been timed to coincide with a three-day Windows 2000 con-
ference in San Francisco, but the attendees are almost exclusively business and
computing professionals. That's because Windows 2000, an upgrade of the
Windows NT operating system, is aimed at business and professional users,
especially those who manage servers.
Microsoft's share of that market is not in the same league as its 87 percent share
of consumer PC operating systems. Among its competitors is a fast-growing an*
essentially free system known as Linux. For that and other reasons, Windows
