CBC only airs six minutes of
advertising per hour, Hasse said.
"It seems like a lot is getting cut
t and there are a lot of good peo-
e who we don't get to see outside
of the U.S.," Dirlekov said.
Other students are also con-
cerned with the biases of NBC.
"I think CBC has been more fair
for all the countries and is not as
biased," LSA sophomore Joe Gen-
den said. "I'd rather see a more
global perspective."
But some students enjoy the
attention NBC gives to American
' letes.
"I think that NBC shows the more
popular sports like gymnastics,"
said Engineering sophomore Robin
Landfair, who runs hurtles for the
University's track and field team.
"When the track events are show-
ing I feel like NBC will be the sta-
tion I'll watch because they will
focus on people like Michael John-
son and Marion Jones, because they

advocate.
The Constitutional Law and Ethics
Committee will be presenting a bill
that deals with setting ethics standards
for state officials and employees,

last year that Ed Martin gave for-
mer Michigan basketball player
Louis Bullock S50,000 prior to his
senior year of 1998.
Bullock and former University
basketball players Chris Webber
and Robert Traylor appeared before
federal court to testify about their
involvement with the Martins this
summer.
Carlton Martin could not be
reached for comment on the plea
agreement.
Brater said. The bill would set up a
board to review the conduct of most
state office holders, while the attorney
general, secretary of state, and a cou-
ple other positions would be reviewed
by the governor.
Although Brater said she disagrees
with the governor taving sole jurisdic-
tion over some officials, she did say "Its
a good idea to have ethics clarified."

TAA orders Pro Air to shut
down for maintenance problems

DETROIT (AP) - Citing serious aircraft safety prob-
lems, the Federal Aviation Administration ordered dis-
*int carrier Pro Air to halt its flights effective at
midnight yesterday.
Pro Air failed to perform some scheduled engine
maintenance, allowed dents to go unrepaired for years
and failed to fix other safety defects, the FAA said.
The struggling 3-year-old airline operates three Boe-
ing 737 aircraft from Detroit City Airport. It has faced
increasing financial problems.
The FAA's emergency order yesterday revoked Pro
Air's operating certificate.
The safety agency said it acted because Pro Air has
shown it "lacks the qualifications required of the holder
n air carrier certificate:'
'Continuing maintenance, oversight, quality control
and record-keeping problems resulted in widespread fail-
ures to-cumply with applicable federal aviation regula-
tions,the FAA said in a news release.
A lro Air employee who would not give his name
said he was unaware of the order. He said the airline had
a plane arriving from New York and leaving for Chicago '
yesterday night, and it would fly as scheduled.
Hesaii any other information would have to come front
brenner Public Relations in Troy. A message was left
phthc company Monday evening seeking comment.
Northwest Airlines said yesterday night that it would
accept most Pro Air tickets for flights on its own aircraft.
"We will take for standby travel anybody who's hold-
ing a cinfirmed ticket for Pro Air, that is, anybody who's
paid mosey," said Jon Austin, a spokesman for the
Eagan, Minn.-based Northwest.
Northwest would not honor standby tickets bought by

emergency order but cannot operate unless and until it is
reversed.
An appeal would be to an administrative law judge for
the National Transportation Safety Board, said FAA
spokesman Eliot Brenner.
In a letter to Pro Air, the FAA said the airline:
Delayed required engine fan lubrication on one air-
craft this spring by 138 flight hours beyond the maxi-
mtum of 2,000 flight hours required by safety rules.
Failed to repair a dent on the leading edge of one
plane's horizontal stabilizer for nearly two years.
Operated a plane for six days in February with a
broken handle on an emergency escape door.
The order is a serious blow to Pro Air's efforts to
remain in business but is not necessarily the end of the
line for the discount airline.
The FAA issued a similar order against Valu let after a
1996 Florida crash that killed 110 people. The company
then merged with the Orlando-based carrier AirTran Air-

talent can open doors in Treasury, Marketing and
Sales, even Manufacturing. At Ford Motor Company,
Judy can move up without moving on. Although it may
