FARES

fuel.
United officials said they hope to
win back customer support after a
tumultuous summer that involved
delays, cancellations and labor strifes.
"The sale is being offered due to the
operational difficulties United experi-
enced over the summer and is meant to
stimulate demand," said Chris Brath-
waite, spokesman for United Airlines.
When asked how fares would
change after December 14, Brathwaite

said that the airline does not price that
far in advance,
Mary Schubert, a spokeswoman for
Northwest, said the airline retorted to
United's price cuts and is offering
competing fares, though the restric-
tions on tickets differ between the two'
airlines.
According to their respective Web-
sites, United has no black out dates,
while Northwest restricts travel for the
discounted fares on November 22, 26
and 27.

to preser'e energy and raise aware-
ness across the campus and the
communit,," said Mike Swanson,
an energy engineer with the Univer-
si ty.
On disphy on the Diag were
numerous e'ergy-related booths,
including the solar car, the Univer-
sity's solar electrical boat team,
Detroit Edisoi's solar panel exhibit
and Osram/Silvania's display on
flourescent ligts.
It's hard topass up an opportu-
nity for information, especially on
important topic such as the envi-
ronment," nuclir engineer gradu-
ate student Patrick Byrne said.
Swanson sad students can
employ many tecniques to help the
campus save moiey and conserve
energy, such as sutting off com-
puter monitors when not in use,
switching off lighs, lowering the
thermostat and reprting electrical
problems when theyarise.
"This is our thirc year in a six-
year program. We'llsave S3.8 mnil-
lion through the :car 2001 by
implementing energ -saving tech-
niques," Swanson sait
Martin Heller, a Cunter for Sus-
tainable Resources reearch fellow,
said many people arenot aware of
the effect that excessve food has
on the environemnt.
"People need to be conscious
about what they waste, order and
prepare what is needid and buy
local foods" to reducetransporta-_
tion costs and polluion rates,
Heller said. "It's a basi need, but
people don't think of it teat way."
Heller also said it takes seven to
10 units of fossil energ' to create
one calorie of consume food. In
that sense, wasting food s a waste
of the energy expended t' create it,
he said.
"I think we really neel to con-
serve what we have now," ;aid LSA
freshman Tim Wigglin. "lt\ve don't
start now, later on therewill be
more work to do."
