Highlights from the week: Yesterday, the blue chip stocks enjoyed a great day, reflected in the Dow's
substantial gain. Investors took their profits from the tech sector and put it into stocks like McDonald's,
which bought Boston Chicken for $173 million. Exxon-Mobil also saw a good trading day - their first
as a combined oil company. The recently hot NASDAQ is up 12.5 percent for the month while the Dow is
only up 1.4 percent. However, profit taking from the NASDAQ market began Tuesday (a 70 point loss) as
their run of 16 record closes in the last four weeks came to an end. This should eventually effect the
leavily tech laden S&P. The leading internet information site, Yahoo!, will become part of the S&P 500
ipdex after the Dec. 7 trading day.
What is the Dow Jones Industrial Average? The DJIA represents 30 stocks traded on the New York
tock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ are all major factors in their respective industries. These stocks
are widely held by individuals and institutional investors. Many financial advisers think of it as a good
indicator in telling whether the NYSE is doing well or poorly.
What is the NASDAQ Composite? The NASDAQ is the fastest growing stock market in the U.S. due to
it being a screen-based stock market, compared to a trading floor market like the NYSE. It also has almost
all of the technological stocks available for trading, which has proved to be a very volatile industry in the
last couple of years.
What is the S&P 500? The S&P 500 is a market value weighted index composed of 400 industrial
stocks, 20 transportation, 40 financial, and 40 utility. It is a far broader measure than the DJIA
*ecause it takes into account 500 different stocks traded on the two main exchanges (NYSE and
NASDAQ-AMEX) compared to the DJIA's 30 traded on the NYSE and NASDAQ.

LANSING (AP) -The governor couldn't muster enough
votes in the state House vesterdav for more charter schools,
but Republican legislative leaders hope to push an increase
through before they leave next week.
Gov. John Engler wants to raise the 150-school limit on the
number of charter schools that universities can authorize by
50 this year and 25 each year after that.
On a preliminary vote to take up the governor's plan for
debate, only 49 members were voting yes and 58 were voting
no, including six Republicans. Before the vote could be tal-
lied, Republican leaders cleared the voting board and post-
poned the issue for the day.
Democrats and some Republicans say there needs to be
more oversight of publicly funded charter schools before the

"We'll have to see what happens. But
I think it can work," he said.
Associate Provost for Academic
Affairs Lester Monts approved the pro-
posal this summer.
"It's our attempt to move to a paper-

to take advantage of the new technolo-
gy and we're also trying to save trees."

"Personally, I don't see it as an issue. I
never opened my kids' grades anyway"
Alice Kelly said, contrasting her reaction
to other parents who rely on having their
children's grades mailed home.
Associate Registrar Lynn Aidleman
noted that when the University mails stu-
dents' grades to their permanent address-
es, the document goes to students -
making the information private to them.
"The term grade report is not mailed
to parents. It's mailed to students,
Aidleman said, adding that if students
need to give their parents an official copy
of their grades, "we would be happy to
mail it to anywhere (students) request."
