HOCKEY

arguably the best team in the country.
None of that matters because
through all the trials and tribulations of
a championship run, the grand prize
acts as a temptress, luring the teams to
forget their worries and focus instead
on the championship trophy waiting to
be presented in Providence, R.I.
"Every game you get further along
down the wire, you just think about
what it would be like to win that final
game,'Michigan goalie Josh Black-
burn said. "It's a special feeling and

you can't describe it."
But before they can focus on any of
that, the Wolverines know they must
take care of the Red Raiders first. Not
only will the contest be a chance to
advance to the next round, it will also
be a chance for .the Wolverines to
silence the doubters who only awarded
them a five-seed in the tournament.
It's a challenge Berenson is eagerly
anticipating.
"I'm excited, even though I may not
show it,' Berenson said. "We're going
to tell the world we're bad, and then go
out there and show them just how
good we really are."

others should as well. He also spoke of
issues such as health, and how it can
be improved by not eating animals.
Lyman said cholesterol comes from
animal fat and the simplest way to cut
down on cholesterol is to give up eat-
ing animals.
One of the issues some of the audi-
ence members were skeptical of was
the lack of protein commonly associat-
ed from a vegetarian diet.
"High protein diets have potential to
destroy the kidneys," Lyman said,
adding that the body does not need
that much protein to survive.
Lyman also devoted a large portion
of the lecture time talking about the
environment and how it is hurt by rais-
ing animals for mass food production.
"America takes 70 percent of the
grain we grow and stuffs it down the
throats of animals," Lyman said. If this
chain continues, he said, there will not
be enough natural resources to feed
future generations.
Lyman said the majority of farms

do not raise cows and chickens in a
natural way. "Ground-up feathers
are being fed to chickens, and cattle
are being ground up and fed to cat-
tle," he said.
He summed up his lecture by stat-
ing, "The thing I am most proud of is
that no animal had to die for me to
live."
"These issues are very dear to me,"
Engineering graduate student Anil
Subramani said.
LSA junior Kristie Stoick said giv-
ing up meat has more benefits than
just improved health.
"The best thing you can do to help
out the environment is to go vegetari-
an." She also said students can attend
lectures scheduled during Earth Week
2000 to learn more about helping out
the environment.
More than 300 people attended
last night's lecture, the first in a
series that is part of the 30th
anniversary of Earth Week. The
event was sponsored by the Vegetar-
ian Information Network &
Exchange and Michigan Animal
Rights Society.
SPENDING

"We take up donations," said
Jessica Curtin, the Defend Affir-
mative Action Party vice presiden-
tial hopeful. "We spent only a few
hundred on the campaign. We
probably spent the least money, but
we're the most committed people,"
she said.
Curtin emphasized the impor-
tance of speaking with people
instead of using gimmicks.
"We have lots of support and
word of mouth," she said. "It's not
money, but connections."
Independent presidential candi-
date Hideki Tsutsumi said he has
relied on constituent contact to run
his campaign.
"The parties are spending a lot
of money and that's not right. I had
$300 for the entire election but
everyone's talking about me. I can
save money, therefore I can help
students save money," Tsutsumi
said.
The Blue Party also has been
visible on the Diag, playing music
and offering cotton candy to
passersby.
"If you were to include every-
thing, it was around $3,700 for 39
candidates," said Elise Erickson,
Blue Party vice presidential hope-
ful.
"That includes Diag days, fliers,
posters, copying and off-campus
door hangers," Erickson said.
But she emphasized the impor-
tance of outside help. "We had a
lot of donations."
Despite the spending, some can-
didates said they felt the effort was
fruitless.
"The only problem was that the
fliers were torn down every morn-
ing," Blue Party representative
candidate Duke Kims said.
"We could have bought annoying
campaign tactics, but we don't like
it when everyone else does it.
Fliers are ineffective and we didn't
have much money," he said.
Monique Luse of the All Peo-
ple's Party said she hopes spending
wouldn't influence how people
voted.
"If people don't vote for me, I'm
assuming they didn't agree with
my issues," she said.
"I didnt want to make it about
fluff. I'm hoping that people voted
on issues and not what someone

could do for them that moment in
thle Diag"
But most candidates think their
spending will produce results at
the polls.
"People are more receptive if
they know you're legit and not
some guy off the street," Tietz
said.

this kind of course," Horning said.
"We don't teach classes on how to
be Christian, or how to be Jewish or
how to be Irish.:
Horning said he is not considering
any specific plan of action regarding
the class.
H alperin's class has not only gar-
nered criticism from around the state,
but it has received its fair share of
national media attention.
The conservative magazine The
National Review published H alperin's
course description verbatim in its
March 17 issue.

zine printed "U. Michigan was ranked

Justice Dept. starts e-mail imvestigation
WASHINGTON - The Justice Department has initiated a criminal investiga-
tion into whether the White House failed to turn over c-mails to a campaign-
finance probe and then made threats to keep them secret, court documents
disclosed yesterday.
Among the e-mails that may not have been produced are those to Vice President
Al Gore, whose e-mail account was not connected to the White House comput*
archiving system, according to a statement by White House counsel Beth Nolan.
The investigation comes on the heels of the recent White House admission that
computer-programming errors prevented it from searching thousands of incoming
e-mails from 1996 to 1999 in response to subpoenas issued by the Justice Depart-
ment's task force on campaign finance and the Republican-led House Government
Reform Committee.
The new probe is limited to c-mails subpoenaed by the campaign finance task
force, but it runs parallel to Republican charges that the White House has hidden e-
mails about campaign finance, the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the deadly siege of
the Branch Davidian sect in Waco, Texas, and other matters of controversy.
The issue quickly turned political, as Republican presidential candidate George
W. Bush in Florida last Wednesday took a shot at Gore, and said, "The best can
paign finance reform starts with having an administration that will adhere to the
law and an attorney general who will enforce the law."

California Latinos
report poorer health
WASHINGTON - Latino adults
in California are more likely to say
they are in poor health than Latinos in
most other states, the Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention reported
yesterday.
The CDC study, part of a growing
effort to understand health disparities
between minorities and whites, is the
first ever to provide state-by-state
comparisons.
Racial and ethnic disparities in
health emerged as a major public
health issue in the 1990s, as research
showed that blacks, Latinos and s'ome
Asians were faring worse than whites
by many health measures.
The Atlanta-based CDC provided
no explanation for the disparities in its
report, but previous research has
pointed to differences in income, edu-
cation, diet and culture -- not to race
or color.
The CDC study showed that
whites also report significant differ-
ences in health. For example, 22

percent of whites in Kentucky rated
their health as fair to poor while
only 3 percent of whites in the Dis
trict of Columbia did.
"This is a tool for states to use to
see how they compare nationally,
said epidemiologist Julie Bolen, th
study's lead author.
Fingernail bacteria
linked to 16 deaths
OKLAHOMA CITY - Bacteria
found under the long fingernails of
two nurses may have contributed to
the deaths of 16 sickly babies in 1997
and 1998 in an Oklahoma City hospi-
tal, researchers say.
All of the babies were newborns i
the neo-natal intensive care unit a
Children's Hospital of Oklahoma, and
all had infections caused by the same
bacteria found under the nurses' nails.
But researchers said they cannot be
certain that the nurses transmitted the
bacteria to the infants. And the hospi-
tal pointed out that the babies had
seriously deficient immune systems,
and said that other problems played a
larger role in their deaths. 9

Pope pays homage
to Holocaust victims
JERUSALEM - Pope John Paul
II, who witnessed the Holocaust as a
young seminary student in his native
Poland, paid personal homage to the
millions of Jews murdered by the
Nazis yesterday, telling an audience
including death camp survivors that
the lasting memory of the Jewish peo-
ple's agony must "ensure that never
again will evil prevail."
Speaking in the shadowy gloom of
the Hall of Remembrance at Yad
Vashem, Israel's main Holocaust
memorial, he expressed sadness at
"hatred, acts of persecution and dis-
plays of anti-Semitism directed
against the Jews by Christians at any
time and in any place."
While the pontiff stopped short of
an outright apology on behalf of the
Roman Catholic Church for what
many Jews consider the Vatican's
silence, inaction and complicity in the
Holocaust, he added: "In this place of
solemn remembrance, I fervently pray

that our sorrow for the tragedy which
the Jewish people suffered in the 20th
century will lead to a new relationship
between Christians and Jews."
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Bara,
whose maternal grandparents wet*
killed in the Nazi death camp at Tre-
blinka, in Poland, hailed the pope at the
ceremony for what he called his "noble
act" of reaching out to the Jews.
Indonesian president
to be interrogated
JAKARTA, Indonesia - Former
Indonesian President Suharto i0
healthy enough to be questioned by
prosecutors who are investigating
whether he and his family stole bil-
lions of dollars from the government
during his 32-year rule, the country's
attorney general said yesterday.
Suharto's lawyers have insisted
that the 78-year-old former dictator,
who was hospitalized twice last year
after suffering a stroke, is too sick to
be interrogated.
