OHighlights from the week: The Nasdaq market ended its string of four consecutive record closes yes-
terday as some profit taking took place from gains made earlier in the week. The Dow sagged Tuesday
as Coca-Cola CEO Douglas Ivester announced he would step down from his position after 2 and a half
years as the head of the world's most famous soft drink company. But, Yahoo! soared 67 3/16 on Tuesday
as it entered the S&P 500. Mutual fund managers led the internet leader's short term boost as many funds
try to mimic the S&P by holding the same stocks. A rally was sparked Friday due to a good economic
report that showed investors that inflation is in check. Average hourly earnings, which make up 2/3 of a
products price, grew by only 0.1 percent against analysts prediction of 0.3 percent. The Dow came 40
points shy of its Aug. 25 record.
What is the Dow Jones Industrial Average? The DJIA represents 30 stocks traded on the New York
Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ, and are all major factors in their respective industries. These
tocks 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 United
States 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 amarket value weighted index composed of 400 industri-
al 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
ASDAQ-AMEX) compared to the DJIA's 30 traded on the NYSE and NASDAQ.

University, were allocated funds from
the budget, said state Sen. Alma
Wheeler Smith (D-Salem Twp.).
In an attempt to provide funds for
seven other higher education institu-
tions in the state, Schwarz introduced
the amendment to the Senate appro-
priations committee which was
approved Tuesday.
The amendment provides $100 as a
holding place for each university that
was not provided capital outlay funds
in the House bill.
The holding place, while not directly
allocating funds to the universities,
gives them the opportunity to develop
architectural plans that would be sub-
mitted for review. After submitting the
completed plans the universities and
colleges will be provided with the cap-
ital outlay funds.
The amended bill will have to
return to the House for approval. It
is likely that the bill will end up
back in committee, University Vice
President for Government Relations
Cynthia Wilbanks said.
"I would not call this by any
means a finished product," Wilbanks
said.
The amended bill will have to revis-
it the state House for approval before
it can be sent to Michigan Gov. John
Engler for his signature.
"It's very up in the air as to how the
administration is going to react,"
Wilbanks said.

an atmosphere where respect for
human dignity of all our members is
a chief concern. and will be appar-
ent in all our attitudes and actions,"
IFC officials said in a prepared
statement.
"The Interfraternity Council and
Panhellenic Association at the
University have stood in opposition
of hazing for many years.
"Both organizations have formal
policies banning hazing in their
member fraternities and sororities,
and will work closely with all
involved in this case should it be
determined that these policies have
been violated," the statement said.
IFC President Rohith Reddy said

the incident is not indcati e of
activities in the Greek system.
"I'm in shock and disbelief that
this actually happened.? Reddv
said.
The last time a hazing incident
resulted in serious penalties for a
campus fraternity was in 1994, when
a Sigma Phi Epsilon pledge was
admitted to the hospital for alcohol
poisoning.
The Sig Eps chapter voluntarily,
left campus and returned in 1997-
with new members.
The Office of Student Conflict
Resolution, which oversees the
Code of Student Conduct, and the
Ann Arbor Police Department are
conducting their own inquiries into
the incident, University spokesper-
son Julie Peterson said.
