Highlights from the week: The Dow's 225 point loss (2.1%) Tuesday was the worst percentage loss since
May 25. Yesterday resulted in the third straight day that the dollar's value declined in respect to the Japanese
yen. This relationship is one of the key drivers of knocking the U.S. stock market down recently, along with
the Tuesday report that the U.S. had a record trade deficit in July. When there is a weak dollar compared to
a strong yen, it reduces the attractiveness of holding investments (U.S. stocks and bonds) denominated in
dollars. Some analysts say that the recent selloff is due to the reemergence of Japan's economy rather than
investors losing faith in the U.S. dollar.

LAWSUITS
Continued fromPage IA
Dowdell shared an anecdote that
she said demonstrated unawareness
of issues to minority students on
campus. Dowdell said that last
semcstcr in a biology discussion sec-
tion, her graduate student instructor
asked each student an ice-breaker
question. She said the GSI asked
others questions such as what their
favorite movie. But when the GSI
turned to Dowdell - a black student
-- the GSI asked what animal she
thought she resembled most.
"GSls need to be conscious, more
sensitive and more aware of issues
atTecting students of color," Dowdell
said, blaming these sorts of incidents
on a lack of campus integration.
Shanta Driver, a second-year student
at WSU's Law School, encouraged
people to support the intervenors.
"We urge everyone here to help build
a new civil rihts movement," she said.
Speaking about affirmative action.
racism and other issues related to a
movement for social equality was visi-
blv intense for many present.
Clasping her hands together and
reaching her arms out to the audience,
intervenor and Law third-year student
Jodi Masley said "help us to define this
attack because we have so much more
to gain than to lose."
Law third-year student Winnie
Kao introduced the speakers calling
the Law School admissions case an
"historic event." She spoke about
being underrepresented as an Asian
American in the Law School, and
said she knows of only two other law
students of her ethnicity.

DRIVERS
Continuedfrom Page 1A
have long histories ofdrunk driving.
But Smith said that the number of
drunk drivers in Washtenaw Countv
and Ann Arbor are no greater than in
other parts of the state.
About 300 drunk drivers are arrested
per year, O'Dell said.
Of the 6.9 million licensed drivers in
the state, this law is really only geared
at 2 to 3 percent of the driving popula-
tion, Boyd said.
In the past year there have been 17
arrests on campus for drunk driving.

said ILt, Bob Nctamann. a1 I!qcpatmcnt
of Puabliac Sevo ffacial eamn
added that "there are way too many
people drising With suspendcd.
lieenses
"I think the only way to take care of
It Is to take away their car," he said
Smith said that she expects this
law to finally show drunk drivers
that their behavior will not be toler-
ated
"WNe are actually saying that enough
is enough," Smith said.

TICKETS
Continued from Page 1A
Students wait in line for "10,.20 min-
utes at the most," said Chris l.udwig, a
ticket broker at the University of
Wisconsin.
"It guarantees that all students have
seats and guarantees that upperclass-
men get better seats," he said.
Indiana began using the vouchers this
season. The school has no preferential

treatment for students with seniority.
Despite the growing popularity of
this system, the ticket soucher trend
does not appear to be catching at the
Big House.
Martin Bodnar, head of the
Unis ersity of Michigan's Athletic
Ticket Office, said that to his knowl-
edge, the University has no plans to use
a similar voucher sv stem.
"We just try to make sure all the stu-
dents have tickets," lie said.

)OWhat is the Dow Jones Industrial Average? The DJIA represents 30 stocks traded on the New York Stock
Exchange (NY SE) and 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 few years.
'What is the S&P 500? The S&P 500 is a marketvalue weighted index composed of 400 indus-
trial stocks, 20 transportation, 40 financial, and 40 utility. It is a far broader measure than the
DJIA because it takes into account 500 different stocks traded on the two main exchanges (NYSE
and NASDAQ-AMEX) compared to the DJIA's 30 all traded on the NYSE.
