Stanford Law Dean to
speak on affirmative action

Dude looks like a lady

Jodie Kaufman
y Staff Reporter
Stanford Law School Dean Kathleen Sullivan, an alumnae
of the Telluride Association is scheduled to speak at Rackham
auditorium today at 4 p.m. about civil rights and the constitu-
tion in her lecture, "The Last Civil Rights Struggle."
Law School Dean Jeffrey Lehman said Sullivan is "cer-
tainly one of the greatest leaders in the legal academy." He
also said he is "confident that we will all learn a lot from what
she has to say."
Sullivan's visit is sponsored by the Telluride House. The
Telluride Association is an educational, non-profit organiza-
that offers free room and board in a designated house to
duate and undergraduate students who are accepted based
on ment.
Telluride student Rashad Nelms, an LSA junior, said he is
"looking forward to Sullivan's speaking on the division with-
in higher education, which is a national as well as local issue
here, and the controversy surrounding affirmative action,
which is the most pressing issue personally." He also added
that "the issue of diversity as well as excellence in education
and what it means" will be of interest to the organization.
Sullivan recently completed co-authoring the 13th Edition
She classic casebook "Constitutional Law". She also con-
sistently publishes articles in many newspapers such as The
New York Times and The Washington Post.
Originating in 1911 at Cornell University, the Telluride
organization seeks to provide an "intellectual life on campus,
with hands on work in a social issue," said Michigan Project
Coordinator Tom Hawks.
In addition to receiving free room and board, Telluride stu-

dents have an interest in creating an intellectual community,
challenging each other with dialogue, and participating in
other academic programs, seminars and public speaking
workshops, Hawks said.
Since 1993, Hawks has been laying the groundwork for a
Telluride House at the University. This year eight undergrad-
uate students are the proteges for the program, and next fall
the organization expects to have a house to accommodate 30
students.
"We are hoping to offer housing for visiting scholars,
whether it be for a weekend, or an entire year," Hawks said.
The year's students are working on a literacy project. Each
year there will be a different topic upon which the students
will focus. The students will "engage with the community by
bringing academic intellectual perspectives to bear on social
and political concerns," Hawks said.
Nelms said he joined the Telluride Association because "it
offers a broader scope than other organizations, there are a
broad array of interests and I wanted to get involved in the U
of M community at large." He added that he likes "the flex-
ibility the students have to decide what issues we consider
important, we are not pigeon-holers on one particular issue"
Currently the students involved in the Telluride
Association are working with the Michigan Student
Assembly in establishing themselves as a University
organization, so they can receive University community
funding.
The Telluride lecture series will continue this February
with another Cornell Telluride alum, Francis Fukuyama
author of the best-selling book "The End of History and the
Last Man and Trust."

New state criminal laws
set to go into effect Oct. 1

LANSING (AP) - Committing a
:rime could trigger new consequences
inder several laws that take effect Oct. 1.
ertain home invasions, repeated dri-
/ violations and faking handicap
>arking permits will be more severely
>unished under the new laws.
And all Michigan laws will be able to
be enforced by federal officers. Before
hey had to have a felony warrant to make
irrests, but now they will be able to
:nforce laws in an emergency or anytime
ocal or state police ask them to help.
'It is the classic common sense
:ind of thing that makes you wonder
v, it wasn't already being done,"
;a Sen. Mike Rogers, (R-
3righton), the bill's sponsor and a
ormer FBI agent.
"There are more than 700 FBI
gents, U.S. Marshals and Secret
service agents stationed in Michigan,

and we should be taking advantage of
the additional manpower to help keep
Michigan families and communities
safe."
Thirty-two of the new laws will
affect those who repeatedly get caught
drinking and driving or drive on a
revoked or suspended license. The idea
is to remove the repeat offender from
the vehicle by increased license sanc-
tions, immobilization of the vehicle and
even vehicle forfeiture.
Judges can order repeat offenders to
wear a tether on their ankles, have a boot
placed on their vehicles that makes them
undriveable, or require them to install
equipment that keeps a car from starting
if their blood alcohol level is too high.
Police also will be able to remove some
repeat offenders' metal license plates
immediately upon arrest, replacing them
with a temporary paper license plate.

"If and when someone repeats their
criminal behavior and has not learned
from their mistakes, then our penalties
need to address that specific pattern of
bad behavior," said Oakland County
Prosecutor David Gorcyca. "In the end,
our ultimate goal is to protect the public"
The repeat offender package also
establishes two new driving crimes that
Gorcyca drafted after Detroit Red
Wings players Vyacheslav Fetisov and
Vladimir Konstantinov and team
masseur Sergei Mnatsakanov were
injured in a 1997 accident.
Their limousine driver, Richard
Gnida, was convicted of driving on a
suspended license for the accident. He
was eligible for a one-year sentence.
But now driving while suspended and
causing injury is a five-year felony, and
driving while suspended causing death
is a 15-year-felony.

House: juvenile Cime bi
needs gun control provisions

x

WASHINGTON (AP) - The House has agreed that a
long-stalled juvenile crime bill should include gun control
and safety provisions.
By a 305-1 17 vote, House members recommended on
Thursday that the final version of the juvenile crime bill, now
being negotiated between the House and Senate, include
measures to close loopholes allowing criminals and other
banned purchasers from obtaining guns at gun shows and
from non-licensed dealers.
In the Michigan delegation, all but three of the 16 members
voted for the measure. Voting against it were Reps. Jim
Barcia (D-Bay City), John Dingell (D-Dearborn), and Nick
Smith (R-Addison).
The measure came against a backdrop of talks between
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Henry Hyde (R-Ill.)
and the committee's ranking Democrat, John Conyers (D-
Mich.), on gun control language that might break the dead-
lock and be acceptable to all sides.

The Senate passed a series of gun control provisions a few
weeks after the killings at a Colorado high school last spring,
but a slightly different set of proposals died in the House,
with some Republicans claiming they were too strong and
some Democrats asserting that they were too weak.
Also Thursday, the House approved a bill that would move
most class action lawsuits into federal courts, a change that
supporters said would curb the practice of attorneys shopping
around for state courts that give the most generous awards.
The legislation passed on a mostly party-line vote of 222-
207. In the Michigan delegation, all six Republicans voted for
the legislation along with Democrat Barcia. The other nine
Democrats in the delegation voted against it.
The White House voiced strong opposition, saying the bill
would make it harder for individuals to seek grievances
against powerful defendants and would add to the burdens of
federal courts already struggling with case overloads and too
many judgeship vacancies.

shirt," said LSA junior Hilary
Spindler, who made the eight-hour
drive for the game. "The fans were
kind of hostile. But basically, it was
all fun and games."
Anti-Michigan sentiment was
prevalent throughout Madison. A
house party Friday night welcomed
guests with a message claiming that
Michigan, collectively, practices
graphic sexual acts. Prior to
Saturday's game, roving packs of
Wisconsin fans pointed at anyone
with a speckle of blue on their body,
chanting "asshole."
And of course, Ann Arbor is still a
whore.
"I was surprised," said LSA junior
Paul Carp, who also had beer dumped

on him. "I kind of expected verbal
stuff, but I didn't expect the beer."
Carp, who traveled to Columbus
for the Ohio State game last year, said
the Badgers have some work to do,
though.
"They weren't anywhere near as bad
as Columbus," he said. "There, people
would push us and knock us over."
But that's to be expected in
Columbus, where Michigan and Ohio
State form one of the best rivalries in
college sports. That would even be
expected in East Lansing, where
Michigan and Michigan State have an
in-state rivalry as intense as any.
In Madison, Badger fans seam to
think that they have a big rivalry with
Michigan.
"This is their biggest game," Carp
said. "They made a huge deal out of
it. (ESPN's College) Gameday was

there, and everyone was talking about
it. In Ann Arbor, we get Gameday two
or three times a year."
While there wasn't much pushing,
but there was plenty of throwing.
Water balloons came from porches,
beer came from fraternity houses,
cans and plastic bottles came from the
student section in the stadium.
But for Engineering junior Brad
Schwartz, that's fine and dandy.
"I actually enjoy it," Schwartz said.
"It makes me laugh. It was a little
fouler language than other road
games I've been to, though. They
seemed like they were a little bitter."
"They said stuff that didn't make
sense, like, 'You're finally playing a
real team,"' Spindler said. "They're
the ones that lost to Cincinnati.
"But after the game, they didn't say
a thing."

house for following fire safety standards. "The house
was in great shape, with only some very minor viola-
tions," he said.
When AAFD firefighters arrived at the house's circu-
lar driveway, it was not crammed with vehicles as it has
sometimes been in the past, Rayburn said. This allowed
firefighters greater ease in accessing the house.
In 1995, another fire believed to be caused by arson
blazed at the Sigma Phi Epsilon for more than two
hours, causing approximately $400,000 in damage. The
house, located at Hill and State streets, is now a
University parking lot.
A major difference in campus fraternity and sorority
houses is the p~resence of live-in directors, Mountz said.

about 90 percent of inspec-

detector ordinance.
The Chi Phi fraternity
house, located on 1530
Washtenaw Ave., has been
closed twice by fire inspec-
tors in the past, in 1988 and
again in 1992, because of a
lack of safe exits and work-

of July, all of the house's
smoke alarms were in work-
