HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WEEK: The Dow enjoyed its largest one day gain last Thursday when an infla-
tion friendly report came out concerning the core Producer Price Index. It took away concerns from
investors that the Federal Reserve would increase interest rates by more than 25 basis points. When the Fed
actually met Tuesday it confirmed everyone's beliefs and raised two key interest rates, the overnight fed
fund rate and the discount rate, by a quarter point. It was the fifth hike since June 1999 and committee
members warned of future increases if inflation pressure doesn't get under control. The NASDAQ has
rebounded the last two days, especially in the biotech and chip sector, after the selling pressure of last week
following the negative news. The S&P set a new record yesterday as it closed above 1,500 for the first time.
WHAT IS THE DOw JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE? The DJIA represents 30 stocks traded on the
New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ. They are all major factors in their respective indus-
tries. These stocks are widely held by individuals and institutional investors. Many financial advisers
think of it as a good indicator in telling whether the NYSE is doing well or poorly.
WHAT IS THE NASDAQ COMPOSITE? The NASDAQ is the fastest growing stock market in the
United States due to it being a screen-based stock market, compared to a trading floor market like the
NYSE. It also has almost all of the technological stocks available for trading, which has proved to be a
very volatile industry in the last couple of years.
WHAT IS THE S&P 500? The S&P 500 is a marketvalue weighted index composed of 400 indus-
trial stocks, 20 transportation, 40 financial, and 40 utility. It is a far broader measure than the DJIA
because it takes into account 500 different stocks traded on the two main exchanges (NYSE and
NASDAQ-AMEX) compared to the DJIA's 30 all traded on the NYSE and NAS DAQ.

count in the classrooms?" SNRE
senior Sharon Renier asked.
Many students claimed a merger
would damage the program's autono-
my and sense of community that drew
them to it in the first place.
"I would have never considered U of
M if this was a department in LSA,'
SNRE senior Amanda Edmonds said.
Edmonds continued to say that she
was "overwhelmed by the personal

attention" given to her as a freshman,
and she feared that "individual ser-
vices and that personal attention"
would be lost in a merger.
Other students questioned the com-
mittee's lack of SNRE student repre-
sentation.
"It scares me that LSA has a lot of
control over what happens in our
school," SNRE sophomore Kyle
Schott said.
But, the committee is still not fully
formed and has not met yet.
Both Mazmanian and English Prof.

John Knott, who will chair the com-
mittee, said the integration of th&
SNRE undergraduate program is only
a possibility.
"I think a lot of the students' fears
are misplaced," Knott said.
Mazmanian said after the forum that
he was pleased with the turnout and
the opportunity to hear his students'
concerns. He acknowledged that a
merger with LSA was a possibility, but
he also said if that were to happen,
there "is no necessary reason we
wouldn't sustain our community."

DOLLAR
Continued from Page 1A
"By the end of April there will be 500 million golden dol-
lars in circulation.
The U.S. Mint has paid careful attention to historical
detail in the creation of the coin.
"We have worked closely with the Native American com-
munity in the design of the coin. The coin is historically
authentic because we consulted the Shoshone people because
they had the most direct knowledge of Sacajewea," White said.
To kick off the introduction of the Sacajewea coin, a rigor-
ous advertising campaign has been launched to familiarize
the public with the coin. A modern day George Washington
appears in the television ads and is seen using the golden dol-
lar for all kinds of transactions - from buying a hotdog to
purchasing a beverage from a vending machine.
The issuance of the new dollar coins, which cost more to
mint but can remain in circulation much longer than paper
currency, will also save taxpayers money.
"Over the long run the coin is cost effective. The average
life of a coin is 30 years. For the dollar bill it is 18 months,"
White said.
The golden dollar is not the first dollar coin to be intro-
duced to the public. The Eisenhower dollar coin was minted
in the 1930s, and the Susan B. Anthony coin made its debut
in 1971. The failure of what became known as the "SBA

"We have worked closely
with the Native American
community in the design."
- Michael White
U.S. Mint spokesman
coin" has been attributed to its close semblance to the quar-
ter, said Suzanne Heffner, senior manager of media rela-
tions for the Chicago branch of the Federal Reserve Board.
The golden dollar coin is clearly different from the quar-
ter in its color, form and design. In just 14 weeks, the gold-
en dollar has already exceeded the SBA's circulation in its,
first 14 years, according to the U.S. Mint Website.
Although the launch of the golden dollar has gone smooth-
ly, some have expressed doubts about the coin's acceptance.
"I don't think it'll catch on because people, especially men
like to carry wallets. And men predominantly use paper cur-
rency,' Law second-year student Chris Nemeth said.
But others said the coin could make the problem of stub-
born vending machines obsolete.
"It'll make things a lot easier because you don't have to
worry about the dollar feeder thing taking your dollar," LSA'
junior Heoniat Hillock said.
