"There's been some thoughtful planning regard-

Bollinger said the renaming is part of his plan to
create better relationships between the University
"I've wanted to forge stronger relationships
with our distinguished alumni," he said. "This has
been something I've been wanting to do."
Public Policy Dean Rebecca Blank said the
name change will benefit the expanding school.
"It also raises the visibility of our school by
associating it with one of the University's most
prominent alumni and one of the state's most
effective politicians," Blank said in a written state-
If the regents approve the recommendation to
rename the school after Ford, it will become the
second time this year the board has named a
school after a former student.
In June, the regents named the College of
Architecture and Urban Planning in honor of
Bloomfield Hills retail mogul A. Alfred Taubman,
after he donated $30 million to the school.
In 1935, the regents established the Horace H.
Rackham School of Graduate lStudies when the
trustees of the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A.
Rackham Fund of Detroit gave the University $6.5
million to construct a building for graduate stud-
ies and establish an endowment to support
research and other scholarly activities.
After graduating from South High School in
Grand Rapids in 1931, Ford attended the
University, graduating with degrees in economics
and political science in 1935.
A member of Michagamua - the senior men's
honors society, Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity and
the University's student council, Ford also is
known for playing center and linebacker for the
Michigan football team, where he was named most
valuable player his senior year.
After graduating from Yale University Law
School in 1941, Ford joined the U.S. Navy,
remaining in the Naval Reserves until 1963.
Serving in the U.S. House of Representatives for
Grand Rapids from 1948 to 1973 and House
Minority Leader from 1965 to 1973, Ford assumed
the presidency in 1974 after Richard Nixon
resigned in the wake of the Watergate scandal.
Since only 80 seats will be available in the

NTSB delays giving EgyptAir case to FBJ
WASHINGTON - Objections by the Egyptian government have delayed a deci-
sion to turn the EgyptAir Flight 990 crash investigation over to the FBI, a federal law

The timing of the prayer - before the jet's autopilot was disengaged and
the plane dived from 33,000 feet -- raised suspicions that Flight 990 was
deliberately brought down.
But Egyptian officials sought and received a delay in the turnover, a

Change to transplant
rule may be held up
WASHINGTON - A House com-
mittee chair and at least one senator are
trying to block new rules overhauling the
organ transplant system, despite a high-
level agreement last week allowing the
rules to take effect.
House Commerce Committee Chair
Tom Bliley (R-Va.) is threatening to pre-
vent an unrelated piece of health legisla-
tion from coming to the House floor
unless a delay in implementation of the
transplant rules is attached to a bill that is
scheduled to move before legislators go
horne for the year.
Bliley is searching for legislation on
which to attach a delay, although the
Clinton administration has refused to go
along with further postponements and is
certain to resist. House Speaker Dennis
Hastert, following the wishes of his
home state of Illinois, is backing the
administration, which makes Bliley's
last-ditch effort more difficult.
"We are trying to get that extension
included," a Commerce Committee

Summit raises issues
of isolation in Cuba
HAVANA, Cuba - In the first
Ibero-American summit conference
to be staged in Cuba, leaders from
Latin America, Spain and Portugal
have made one point abundantly
clear: their policy of engagement
toward President Fidel Castro in the
face of U.S. efforts to isolate him is
not a one-way street.
Castro has touted the presence
here of heads of state and other dig-
nitaries from 21 countries as a
diplomatic coup. But the coup has
come with a price: at least eight vis-
iting dignitaries have gone out of
their way to hold unprecedented
meetings concerning human rights
with Cuban dissidents whom Castro
has suppressed since coming to
power four decades ago.
Although he told arriving leaders
they could hold talks with whomev-
er they pleased, Castro warned the
anti-government activists of possible

WASHINGTON -The White House
and Republican leaders neared agree-

bill that would finance the hiring of new
teachers and police officers, increase
funding for medical research and co

The two sides were still haggling over
