Deed of Trust lih
Continued from Page 1
for student group usage of the building has continu-
ously changed throughout the years.
"For a while, anyone using Rackham had to have a
letter from the dean. Then for five to six years there
was a liberalization in the policy and you no longer
needed a letter attesting to the appropriateness of the
event, allowing a number of organizations to use the
hall," Gilmartin said.
Shanon Rice, administrative assistant for University
Productions, said anyone scheduling events will now
have to work harder to utilize the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre and the Power Center. "It will be really hard on
them though, because the Mendelssohn Theatre and
Power Center are always booked," Rice said.
nits Rackham to graduate students
LSA sophomore Kym Stewart, founder of A Cap-
pella United, a coalition of the 14 a cappella groups
on campus, said the policy will really hurt groups on
"We all have concerts there. Now we're stuck.
We're hoping to work more with Dean (Earl) Lewis,"
Stewart said. "We just have a different interpretation
of the trust. There are a cappella groups with gradu-
ate students in them and many graduate students
view our concerts.
"Rackham was a common venue for groups and
now it's going to be hard for people to get used to
new locations," she added.
Fairfield said he believes events such as Democra-
tic political strategist James Carville's lecture
Wednesday and readings sponsored by the English
Department will still be permitted at Rackham.
"As far as I know, department-sponsored event
such as the undergraduate English Department
should not be affected by this," Fairfield said.
RSG passed a resolution in September supportin
the changes to the Rackham Facilities Usage Policy.
"We believe these changes are not only in the bes
interest of the graduate student community, whic
we were elected to serve and represent," Fairfiel
said. "It will also go a long way toward addressin
the concerns which graduate student organization
have expressed over the past several years about th
difficulties which they have faced scheduling certai
areas of Rackham, such as the Rackham Auditorium
for their events."
Earlier last year, Lewis met with Utriversity Pro
ductions officials to explain that the school is boun
by law to follow the Deed of Trust.

t, Christopher to lead search for Gore VP
g WASHINGTON - Former Secretary of State Warren Christopher will lead Al
Gore's effort to select a running mate, Gore announced yesterday, launching a vice
st presidential sweepstakes that until now had been more of a political parlor game.
h The job is a familiar one for Christopher, who did the same chore in 1992 for
d Bill Clinton in a process that ended with the Arkansas governor picking Gore to
g join him on the Democratic ticket.
s Christopher later helped Clinton choose his first Cabinet, which included his
e own name as top diplomat.
n He was secretary of state for four years to mixed reviews, with some criticizing
n, a lack of progress in Middle East negotiations and his handling of Bosnia while
others praised him for steady good judgment.
-_ Now 74, Christopher is a lawyer in Los Angeles.
d "I welcome his experience and judgment in this important effort,"the vice presi-
dent said in a statement.
His selection brings concreteness to a process that was the subject of speculation
even before Gore and his Republican rival, Texas Gov. George W. Bush, wrapped
up their parties' nominations on March 7.
Bush has other priorities - integrating his own campaign structure witilie
national Republican Party apparatus, for example - before he turns to establish-
ing a vice presidential selection process, officials say

Top officer accused
of groping peer
WASHINGTON - A two-star gen-
eral accused of groping a female peer
later was nominated for the Army's
No. 2 investigative post, defense offi-
cials acknowledged yesterday, raising
questions about whether military lead-
ers had dealt appropriately with the
woman 's explosiverallegations.
Maj. Gen. Larry Smith, a decorated
Vietnam veteran, was nominated to be
the Army's deputy inspector general
last Aug. 27, even though Lt. Gen.
Claudia Kennedy had complained
three years earlier that Smith had
touched her inappropriately during a
brief encounter in her Pentagon office.
In the inspector general post, Smith
would oversee investigations of
imprope- conduct, including sexual
harassment. Kennedy, a military intel-
ligence specialist and the Army's high-
est-ranking woman, raised the issue
with at least one superior in 1996, then
went to her superiors again informally
last fall in hopes of quietly persuading
them that Smith was not suited for the
investigative post, several officers said.
Though she hoped to avoid a full-
scale investigation, her allegations set
off a formal inquiry by the Army
inspector general. Smith, meanwhile,
has been assigned temporary duty at
the Army Materiel Comman n
Elian's father arrives
in U.S. to claim boy
WASHINGTON - On U.S. soil,
Juan Miguel Gonzalez said yesterday
he was "truly impatient" to reclaim
his son Elian, but his hopes for a
quick transfer of custody were dashed
when government negotiations h
the 6-year-old Cuban boy's Miamil-
atives broke down.
The father declared his love for son
Elian and chastised those who are try-
ing "to obtain political advantage" from
the custody battle over the shipwreck
survivor. Gonzalez received immediate
assurances that the U.S. government is
eager to reunite him with his son. "It is
simply the right thing to do," De ty
Attorney General Eric Holder said.

Former premier gets
life prison sentence
KARACHI, Pakistan - Former
Pakistani prime minister Nawaz
Sharif was spared the death penalty
and sentenced to life in prison yester-
day after being found guilty of hijack-

from his futile attempt to prevent a
military coup that ousted him from
An antiterrorism court cleared
Sharif of attempted murder and kid-

his efforts to prevent a commercial
aircraft carrying Gen. Pervez Mushar-

The sentence was seen by some as a
setback for Musharraf, who toppled
Sharif's government hours after the
plane landed and remains at the head
of a military regime. Government pros-
ecutors, who argued that Sharif had
endangered the lives of more than 200
passengers and crew members on the
Pakistan International Airlines flight by
refusing landing rights, had urged the
court to impose the death penalty.
Reading the verdict to a pa d
