LAWSUIT
Continued from Page 1A
While Cantor. said he thinks the
University is a marvelous institution,
he said he hopes the lawsuit will
implement a regulatory mechanism
for enforcing rules against substance.
"If drinks hadn't been served at
that party, then there wouldn't have
been any accident," he said. "This is
the most far-reaching part of the
lawsuit. It has the greatest effect for
good."
Cantor also filed a lawsuit in
August against Peter Johnston, who
built the loft in Courtney Cantor's
room.
The lawsuit claims Johnston did
not use proper care when designing
and construction the lofts and also
failed to warn Courtney Cantor
about potential dangers of the loft.
Johnston's attorney, Judy Moskus,
denied the allegations against her
,client.

MARTIN
Continued from Page IA
Martin served on a committee formed by Bollinger in Feb-
ruary 1999, to look into the financial problems of the athletic
department. Budget plans released last summer revealed the
department to be in S2 million deficit.
"As a result of that, he has as much knowledge as anyone
about the intricacies of athletic finances," Bollinger said.
Bollinger said he plans to release actual numbers within
the next few days.
"We may still face a continuous set of issues surrounding
the investigation we started and concluded over a year ago
around Mr. Ed Martin. We are waiting to see what will evolve
out of the U.S. attorney's office," Bollinger said.,
Despite his various business commitments, the interim
director said he plans to prioritize his position at the University.
"I won't spend any more time on outside activities," he
said. "This is my full-time job here."
Martin's term begins today, pending approval from the
University Board of Regents, who will meet March 20. He
said his first order of business is to meet the staff.
"I want to let them get to know me," he said.
But Martin said he does not plan to become the permanent
athletic director, and has indicated that he does not wish to be
compensated for his term.

Assistant Athletic Director Mike Stevenson, whodhas been
with the athletic department for 30 years and worked with six
athletic directors, said he is excited to be able to work with
Martin.
"We've got the best man that we could possibly have," he
said.
Assistant Athletic Director Warde Manuel expressed a
similar sentiment.
"I think he'll bring a tremendous amount of knowledge to the
table, in terms of Olympic sports and how things are done, on a
broader international and U.S. perspective, and I think that'll be
a value to the University and I think he'll be able to fold in very
quickly some knowledge of what happens at a collegiate level."
Manuel and Stevenson are serving on a transition commit-
tee that Bollinger appointed March 1.
Vice President and University Secretary Lisa Tedesco, who
is chairing the committee, said the committee is only to serve
as a resource to Martin, and he will have the same authority
as any past athletic director.
"The athletic department and interim athletic director will
be the entity, but as that individual needs some resources or
some information, we've been around long enough to provide
the interim with background information," Tedesco said of
the committee.

Clinton marches in Selma memoria
SELMA, Ala. - Thirty-five years after America's Bloody Sunday, when
police beat and bloodied voting rights marchers at the Edmund Pettus lidge,
modern-day civil rights figures traced the same path yesterday with Bill Cinton
- a white Southerner who credited the march with his rise to be president.
"I am a son of the South, the old segregated South. Those of you who
marched on Bloody Sunday set me free, too," Clinton said before walking acr
the bridge arm-in-arm with Coretta Scott King, widow of Rev. Martin LutFa
King, and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) who was badly injured in the 1965 marh.
Lewis, who marches every year to mark the anniversary, invited Clinton to
join him this year, Clinton's last in office.
Brutal images of the ugly violence on the bridge galvanized many far o6tside
the South to the civil rights movement, and helped win support for the Voting
Rights Act.
On March 7 that year, Alabama state troopers and sheriff's deputies used tear
gas, nightsticks and whips to break up an attempt by blacks and white integra-
tionists to march 50 miles to the state Capitol in Montgomery to protest the
denial of voting rights to blacks in Selma.
Some marchers retaliated with bricks and bottles. Lewis, then chairmanof t
