"The enforcement is very, very lax,"
Kossoudji said.
Kleinsmith said he thinks the infor-
mation should be sent to parking offi-
"It is very interesting and important
data, that we should forward to park-
ing officials," Kleinsmith said.
The fact parking lots are not being
monitored is a breakdown in commu-
nication. University Provost Nancy
Cantor and President Lee Bollinger
have said there are parking monitors
but Kleinsmith said they are not pre-
The only data that the University
has is that of SACUA's, Kleinsmith
Another concern about the parking
stemmed from faculty interest.
SACUA member Barbara
MacAdam said "with the addition of
the Life Science Programs, more visi-
tors and guests will need parking. For
visitors to come and take a look at the
parking situation is a very negative
reflection for the University."
SACUA members discussed their
next step and decided to continue
holding their casual parking sur-

veys biweekly. The survey will only
be held at the Church Street and
School of Business Administration
parking structures, since most cars
without blue passes and tickets
have been found there, Kossoudji
"One reason to do it, is-if we per-
sonally collect data, all we say is 'Lee
we want you to stop illegal parking,"'
Kossoudji said.
Cantor visited yesterday's meeting
and updated the committee on the Life
Science Initiative.
"We have made parallels in a sense
to the undergraduate curriculum, espe-
cially Engineering and LSA - we
want to make sure to integrate courses
across campus," Cantor said.
Deans from LSA, College of Engi-
neering, School of Public Health and
the School of Natural Resources and
Environment have been brainstorming
ways to integrate course sequences
and are getting faculty and student
feedback, Cantor said.
"We are moving forward, and are
very excited about that," Cantor said.
Programs associated with the Life
Sciences Initiative should be in effect
by the fall of 2001, regardless of phys-
ical structure of the new buildings,
Cantor said.

patrols out to enforce" the new law,
said Capt. Mike McCabe of the
sheriff's office.
Although they do not yet have
official records, McCabe said pre-
liminary reports seem to show that
seat belt violations were down.
Because the implementation of
the law was so highly publicized,
McCabe said, "we're finding offi-
cers are writing less tickets."
Even though Oakland County did
not take special action for the first
weekend of the law's implementa-
tion, McCabe said the law will
"save lives."
Brown is actually less optimistic
about the law because "people who
don't wear their safety belts are
creatures of habit and they'll have

to be told more than once."
He said if there is an increase in
the existing 70 percent compliance
rate - it will be small.
"If it's in the '80s or mid-'70s
then we'd be doing well," he said.
Brown said he feels a $25 fine is
not enough. "The government is
going to have to do more educa-
tion," he said. "Something on the
educational level will really have an
Responding to accusations that
the law is an example of the gov-
ernment overstepping its bounds,
Logghe said, "sometimes you have
to save people from themselves."
Brown said that after 20 years
working.for the traffic division and
seeing people die because they did
not wear a seat belt, he believes
"it's a good law and I don't think
the government is out of line."

L.A. Times agrees to Tribune merger
LOS ANGELES - Times Mirror Co., parent company of the Los Angeles
Times, has agreed to be taken over by Tribune Co., owner of the Chicago Tri-
bune and more than two dozen other media properties .
The $6.38 billion transaction would create the nation's third-largest newspaper
company and end more than 100 years of local ownership of The Times by the
Otis and Chandler families.
It would leave The Times - long the dominant news medium in California -as
a wholly owned subsidiary of the Chicago-based Tribune Co. and make Los Ange-
les the largest city in the country without a locally owned metropolitan daily. The
deal would also effectively mark the demise of Times Mirror at a time of increasing,
large-scale media consolidation, marked most dramatically by the pending $163 bil-
lion merger announced two months ago by Time Warner and America Online.
The loss of Times Mirror would leave Atlantic Richfield Co. as the only
remaining Fortune 500 company based in downtown Los Angeles, and Arco
won't be an independent company if it is acquired by BP Amoco under a pro-
posed deal awaiting antitrust approval.
Under the terms of the Times Mirror-Tribune deal, Times Mirror shareholders
will have a choice of taking $95 per share from Tribune Co. or exchanging ea@
of their Times Mirror shares for 2.5 shares of Tribune Co. stock (Which repre-
sents about $93).


Dartmouth drops all
cheating charges
HANOVER, N.H. - After the
Committee on Standards heard only
27 of the 63 cases of alleged Comput-
er Science 4 cheating, the College
announced today that it is withdraw-
ing all charges brought against stu-
dents by former visiting professor Rex
Dean of the College James Lari-
more, who served as non-voting
chair of the COS said, it became
clear after more than 34 hours of
hearings and deliberation that the
body would be unable to distinguish
with certainty between those who
cheated and those who received the
solutions to the homework from
legitimate sources.
"The committee concluded that
some cheating did occur," Lari-
more wrote in a letter to the Dart-
mouth community.
"But ... the nature and the quali-
ty of the evidence, combined with
the circumstances under which the
course was conducted, made it

impossible to distinguish between
those responsible and those not
responsible for violations of the
Academic Honor Principle," he
The letter will be distributed to stu-
dents via Hinman Mail in the comic
Study questions role
of estrogen on heart
ANAHEIM, Calif. - Challenging
a medical doctrine that has stood for
two decades, a study found no evi-
dence that estrogen supplements pro-
tect older women from heart disease.
The findings are likely to confu
doctors and patients alike about t
already complicated decision of
whether to take estrogen for many
years after menopause. Estrogen has
both benefits and risks, including an
increased chance of breast cancer.
The latest research, released yester-
day, is the second major study to
question the doctrine that hormone
replacement is a powerful way to ward
off heart disease.

Cohen faces Vietnam
veteran challenges
HANOI - A U.S. defense secre-
tary flew into Vietnam yesterday for
the first time since 1971 in hopes of
building relations with the armed
forces that once humbled the world's
most powerful military.
On the eve of the 25th anniversary
of the war's end, Defense Secretary
William Cohen was received by Viet-
namese Minister of Defense Gen.
Pham Van Tra. Cohen expressed his
hope for development of military ties
that would mark a final stage of nor-
Side by side in front of a graceful
French colonial government guest-
house, Cohen and Tra stood at atten-
tion as a Vietnamese army band
played a spirited "Star Spangled Ban-
ner." The single-starred red banner of
the Socialist Republic of Vietnam flut-
tered lazily overhead as the defense
chiefs followed a goosestepping offi-
cer on a red carpet around the court-
yard in a review of Vietnamese army

and navy units.
Although Cohen insisted he was
not going to dwell on a past that
has "scarred both our countries,"
powerful symbols of the war w
at hand.
The three-day visit comes just as
the Vietnamese are beginning a seven-
week official celebration of their
country's victory in the war.
Russia: Chechen
warlord captured
URUS-MARTAN, Russia - R4
sia said yesterday it had finally cap-
tured senior Chechen warlord Salman
Raduyev, an elusive fighter who once
raided Russia and seized hundreds of
hostages and claims to have set bombs
at Russian rail stations.
Raduyev - who masks his war-
scarred face with dark glasses and a
thick beard - was the first high-level
rebel leader seized by Russia in the
six-month-old Chechen war.
