Hands-on experiences benefit students

CLASSES
Continued from Page JA
LSA freshman Christina Urbanow-
icz's Psychology 211 course in criminal
justice placed her in a mentoring situa-
tion at the Maxey W. J. Boys Training
School in Whitmore Lake.
"It makes me feel good to do some-
thing to influence (the boys)," Urbanow-
icz said.
Through experiential classes, students
learn to apply academic theories to
practical applications.
Mabel Rodriquez teaches a two-
Dart course on migrant outreach.

During the spring term, students
"academically analyze" migrant
workers in the Michigan.
In the summer term, the students
will visit migrant campus through-
out southeastern Michigan and edu-
cate migrant workers about
pesticide, educational opportunities
and health issues - all in Spanish.
"They will have a first-hand experi-
ence of the living conditions, while
battling the same linguistics issues that
the workers have to face," she said.

Crews search for more tornado victims
FORT WORTH, Texas - Cleanup crews sent huge dangling pieces of glass
crashing to the pavement from Fort Worth's skyscrapers yesterday as rescuers
searched for more victims of tornadoes that ripped through the city, killing at
least three people.
"We still feel there may be more victims trapped in the debris," Fire Chief
Larry McMillan said.
Three people were killed, one was missing and presumed dead, more thaL80
were injured and dozens were left homeless as two twisters blasted windows f
dozens of offices and tore homes apart shortly after the evening rush hour Tuesday.
"Imagine a large bomb going off," said Sean Finley, who hustled frantic cus-
tomers down 35 floors to safety from his high-rise restaurant.
The twister stripped the brick walls off a cathedral tower as two women
prayed inside. "It looks like a battlefield and yet God brought us miraculously
through," said the Rev. Bob Nichols as he surveyed the damage at Calvary
Cathedral International.
About 30,000 people were left without power at the height of the storm, with
2,000 still out yesterday afternoon, TXU Corp. spokeswoman Pat Nichols said.
Downtown Forth Worth, a city of 480,000 about 30 miles west of Dallas, was
sealed off as crews pushed 200-pound panes of glass to the ground fror35
floors up. W

disciplinary and intergenerational per-
spectives," which combines lecture,
class discussions and working in senior
centers.
She said the class gives students a

deeper understanding of what leader-
ship is.
"You really learn best by doing,' Rau-
denbush said. "The whole purpose of an
education is to understand ourselves as
human beings. What else is there?"

"Within the next couple of weeks I am certain I
will have to deal with it," Bill Martin said. "If
issues come out with the Ed Martin situation, then
we'll deal with them. We'll get the truth, and we'll
deal with it."
Earlier reports indicated that Ed Martin gave
large loans and gifts to several players, including
Chris Webber, Robert Traylor and Louis Bullock.
The NCAA has only a four-year statute of limi-
tations, which would only cover possible new vio-
lations dating back to 1996.
Ellerbe refused to comment on the Ed Martin
situation.
Bill Martin confirmed that estimates of the
department's budget will show a deficit of up to
$3 million.
Lost revenue from a canceled radio contract
with TSN after the company failed to make pay-
ments accounts for about $2 million of the dis-
crepancy. Declining income from alumni gifts and

apparel revenue accounts for as much as S1 mil-
lion more.
"We use to be the leader in logo sales, but we
haven't won a championship in a few years," Mar-
tin said. "There's also a change in fashion. Kids
don't want to wear just a polo shirt with a logo
anymore."
Martin also said not to expect a miracle in
repairing the budget by the end of fiscal year July
I and said he instead hopes to look toward next
year.
Ellerbe and Martin said little else about other
rumors related to the basketball program, includ-
ing the status of freshman guard Jamal Crawford
next season and the possibility of any players
transferring.
Crawford said all season long that he plans to be
in a Michigan uniform this fall. He still has to
serve three games of an eight-game suspension
left for trying to enter the NBA draft.
Crawford missed six games this season for vio-
lating an NCAA amateurism bylaw by accepting
cash and gifts from a family friend.

ZIMMER

Sheldon kept in social contact with Zimmer after
he left city council. "Every year he'd throw these
Valentine's Day parties - he'd dress up in a tuxedo;"
she said. Sheldon said she regretted not being able to
attend his party in February.
Some ITD employees were unable to reach their
offices yesterday because of the investigation as busi-
ness at ITD continued in a normal but "subdued"
manner, said Jose-Marie Griffiths, the University's
Chief Information Officer. Officials were on hand for
employee grief counseling. "He was well-liked," she
said. "People were shocked and saddened."
Zimmer, who was 41, grew up in Ann Arbor and
graduated from Pioneer High School. He received a
degree in computers and a masters in business admin-
istration from the University.
Zimmer entered the building at 1:17 a.m. Monday
with a 12-gauge, single barrel shotgun he had pur-
chased sometime last week, DPS spokeswoman
Diane Brown said.

Judge rules Clinton
violated privacy act
WASHINGTON - President Clin-
ton and his top aides intentionally vio-
lated the privacy rights of former
White House volunteer Kathleen Wil-
ley by publicly releasing friendly let-
ters she had written to the president, a
federal judge ruled yesterday.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge
Royce Lamberth, which demon-
strates the lingering effects of the
Monica Lewinsky scandal and the
persistence of the conservative
group Judicial Watch, will force
White House lawyers to answer
questions from the Washington-
based organization.
But the finding by Lamberth, a
Republican appointee who has often
been at odds with the Clinton admin-
istration, that "the president commit-
ted a criminal violation of the Privacy
Act" is unlikely to result in any sanc-
tions against Clinton or his aides.
At a White House news conference
yesterday, Clinton defended his
release of Willey's letters to show that

her allegations in the midst of the
1998 Lewinsky furor "were untrue."
White House counsel Beth
Nolan said she is confident Lam-
berth's ruling "will be overturned
on appeal" because previous legal
opinions have held that the privacy
act does not cover the president's
office.
Boycott jeopardizes
gay rgghts march
WASHINGTON - When hundreds
of thousands of gay men and lesbians
marched on Washington seven years
ago, they worried that conservative,
anti-gay groups would disrupt the gath-
ering. This time, the most bitter fighting
is among gay rights leaders.
In a time of unprecedented props
for gay men and lesbians, the Millenni-
um March for Equality scheduled for
April 30 was expected to be the move-
ment's fourth and biggest national rally
ever with up to I million people.
Activists are calling for a boycott,
accusing organizers of planning the
event without enough community
input, especially from people of color.
