Doxey's mother, Diana Wood, of
Marshall, Mich., was also in attendance.
"I don't believe everything he stands
for, but I believe in his right to stand for
it' she said.
Miranda Massie, Doxey's lawyer,
said she was pleased with the sentence
and that the conviction would be
appealed on the grounds that AAPD
officer Michael Lencioni, whose testi-
mony was instrumental in convicting

Doxey, had perjured himself in identi-
fying Doxey.
"This is a defeat for the Ann Arbor
Police Department because they want
someone to pin this on," Massie said.
She added that "it is a tremendous vic-
tory that Tommy Doxey is not going to
serve time."
Massie asked for a suspension of the
sentence on the grounds that an appeal
was being made, but Shelton dismissed
the request.
Washtenaw County Chief Assistant
Prosecutor Joseph Burke said he felt
the verdict was fair.

"They had two gay sons who died of
AIDS and another who was murdered,"
Wolocko said. "They lost all three sons
in eight years. Their youngest son, Guy,
tried to educate people on AIDS,
homophobia, discrimination and caring
for the terminally ill. Once he died they
took over his mission"
The couple also will be holding open
discussions on AIDS awareness and
speak about losing their two sons to the
disease, on both Tuesday, Nov. 30 and
on Dec. 2. The first open discussion
will be held in Stockwell Residence
Hall and the second open discussion
will be held in Bursley Residence Hall

service on Thanksgiving has grown
on him over the years.
"I definitely enjoy it; you get good
vibes from this sort of work,' he said,
"We also deliver food to people's
houses - usually the elderly or folks
who can't afford a nice dinner or
can't cook. That's my favorite part.
They're so thankful. They talk to you
and it's so nice to see them happy.
You can tell they get lonely on other
days."
Circle K International President
Katie Foley, an LSA junior, said she
also discovered the spirit of sharing
on Thanksgiving.
Foley worked in the joint canned
food drive sponsored by Salvation
Army and Circle K earlier this week,
and she also will be participating in
"Waiters for a Day" at the Truth
Lutheran Church in Detroit.
"We'll be serving a warm holiday
meal to over 1,500 low-income fami-
lies and helping clean up as well," she
said in a written statement. "We do
these projects over Thanksgiving
because it is so easy to simply enjoy
the holiday without thinking about
those who don't automatically get a
good meal, lots of sleep in a warm
bed and time to enjoy with their fam-
ily."
Foley said that the meaning of
Thanksgiving becomes more vivid to
her when she volunteers.
"I personally will be helping out
over Thanksgiving because I am
thankful that I have the opportunity
to give back," she said. "It's impor-
tant, even when it's not Thanksgiving,
to both give thanks for what we have
and remember those who don't have
as much to give thanks for."
Cottage Inn Pizza, located on East
William Street, is also prepared to
serve the community. Thursday, the
restaurant will be continue its 15-year
tradition of serving free
Thanksgiving dinners. Relying on the
help of volunteers and employees,
Cottage Inn provides sliced turkey,
mashed potatoes and other sides to
the hungry.
"We usually (feed) up to 200,
between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.," said
Diana Cordro, director of special
events for the restaurant.
Cordro said that they have a wide
range of volunteers show up for the
event.

"Kids as young as four carry
breadbaskets to people. Whole fami-
lies come to help out before their own
meal. Once, the whole U of M men's
swimming team came, since they had
to stay here for practice. We don't
deny anyone who wants to help out.
We want everyone to know what that
warm fuzzy volunteer feeling is like,'
Cordro said.
The University's chapter of Habitat
for Humanity will be continuing its
project of building a home for a sin-
gle mother during Thanksgiving
break.
"The fact is, if we want to meet our
goal of moving in the family by the
end of February, we need to work this
weekend," said Katie Norris, work
coordinator for the project.
Norris said they are hoping for 25
people to help out on both Friday and
Saturday, but because of students
streaming out of Ann Arbor for the
vacation, she's not anticipating a full
team. However, interested students
can check www un ich.edu/-habitat
for more information.
Because of the large number of
homeward-bound students,
ProjectSERVE is not sponsoring any
projects during the break.
"There just aren't enough students
around, who are willing to help out,
for us to plan anything,' said Natasha
Varhage, ProjectSERVE program coor-
dinator.

Clinton: Albanians
need to forgive Serbs
WASHINGTON - Controversy
over what was said in the cockpit of
EgyptAir Flight 990 has clouded hard
evidence from the flight data recorder
that someone aboard the plane caused
it to crash.
It is that evidence, among the most
detailed the National Transportation
Safety Board has ever had to work
with, that allowed chair James Hall to
make the unusually early pronounce-
ment that the plane did not appear to
have been brought down by a mechan-
ical problem or bad weather.
The recorder also does not support
any theory of a bomb, which some
Egyptians have blamed for the Oct. 31
crash of the New York-to-Cairo flight.
All 217 aboard were killed.
Investigators believe the crash may
have been caused by Gameel El-
Batouty, a backup pilot who apparently
was alone in the cockpit shortly before
the crash.
The cockpit recorder picked up the

sound of the right-seat occupant utter-
ing a statement before the plane began
its dive toward the Atlantic Ocean.
What was said, its translation from
Arabic to English and its meaning in
the Egyptian culture have triggered
argument and diplomatic tensio*
between the two countries.
World AIDS death
toil to hit 2.6 million
About 2.6 million people worldwide
will die of AIDS this year, the most of
any year since the epidemic began,
according to a report by the United
Nations AIDS program.
The estimate means roughly one
in every 20 deaths on the globe i*
now caused by AIDS, a disease
unknown two decades ago. About
16.3 million people have already
died of AIDS.
In addition, about 5.6 million iw
infections with the human immunode-
ficiency virus (HIV) will occur this
year, raising the number of people cur-
rently living with the disease to about
33.6 million.

Military to undertake review of conduct
WASHINGTON - Defense Secretarv William Cohen called for a militarv-
wide review of conduct yesterday after a Pentagon study said up to 75 percent of
blacks and other ethnic minorities reported experiencing racially offensive behav-
ior.
At the same time, a companion study indicated the percentage of minority ana
women officers had more than doubled in 20 years.
Cohen, in a letter to service chiefs, said the survey on race relations, the most
extensive ever taken by a government agency, should be used as a guide "as we
work to improve our processes and practices.'
"There is no place for racism in our society"' Cohen told a Pentagon news con-
ference. "There is certainly no place for it in the military."
The 296-page congressionally mandated survey was conducted in late 1996 and
early 1997. It was mailed to 76,754 active duty enlisted Army, Navy, Air Force,
Marines and Coast Guard members and officers. More than 44,000 were returned.
The report indicated that racial minorities in uniform remain more pessimistic
than whites about their chances for advancement.
Seventy-five percent of blacks and 67 percent of Latino/as said they had expelri
enced racially offensive behavior in the 12 months before the survey was taken.
compared with 62 percent for whites.

Clinton urges ethnic
Albanians to forgive
UROSEVAC,Yugoslavia - In a plea
met with scant applause and silent
stares, President Clinton told ethnic
Albanians in Kosovo yesterday that
"you must try" to forgive Serb neigh-
bors and stop punishing them for the
terror campaign of Slobodan Milosevic.
"The time for fighting has passed,"
Clinton said. "Teach your children that
life is more than the terrible things that
are done. It is how you react to them."
Guarded by armed troops and tanks,
Clinton ended a 10-day European tour,
by sweeping into war-torn Kosovo to
urge reconciliation instead of revenge
and to give a Thanksgiving boost to
U.S. peacekeeping forces.
American aircraft shared runways
with Russian helicopters at the jointly
controlled Pristina airport, patrolled by
guards and soldiers armed with auto-
matic rifles.
Clinton flew over snow-covered
fields and homes with fire-blackened

windows, signs of the destruction
caused by Yugoslav President
Milosevic's forces until they werq
expelled by 78 days of NATO alr
attacks.
Orthodox Christian Bishop
Artemije, a leader of Kosovo's dwin-
dling Serb minority, complained "to
Clinton about reprisals.
London mayoral race
slowed by scandal
LONDON - Envisioned as awayto
bring American-style grass-root@
power to London, the city's first may-
oral campaign is descending into a
political farce long before May's e!pc-
tion.
The Conservative party's nominee;
Jeffrey Archer, was forced to quit the
race Saturday in a plot twist wortldf
one his best-selling novels. The reason:
an old scandal that came back to haV ft
him.
