and restaurants to keep tequila in stock. Buhr
said Michigan distributors were out of some
tequilas during the summer.
"We were making drives to more scenic parts
of Detroit to get tequila," Good Time Charley's
general manager Tony Binino said.
The current status of Michigan's tequila stock
has improved, Macielak said.
"Slowly but surely it's coming back into the
state," he said.
Frank Langmesser, manager of the Brown Jug,
said he encountered similar problems.
"The price of Jose Cuervo has jumped four
dollars in a year," Langmesser said.
This, in turn, has forced the Brown Jug also to
raise their drink prices. Top-shelf tequila increased
50 cents and well tequila increased 25 cents.
Langmesser said some smaller tequila compa-
nies have started to make blends in an effort to
produce larger quantities. One company, Mon-
tezuma, now sells a blend which on the label is
called "tequila and liquor.-
Another cause of the problem is that in recent
years tequila has become more of a "sipping
drink" than it has been in the past.
"Five years ago people weren't doing
tequila like that," Langmesser said. "Now a
lot more people have started to be connois-
seurs and tequila is more of a sipping drink
like bourbon, not just margaritas and shoot-
Some students on campus said they weren't
aware of the tequila shortage and hadn't noticed
an increase in price.
"Maybe the Spring Break exposure is helping
tequila's popularity in the States," LSA junior
Nate Kline said.

fields of biology, medicine and anthropology.
A large part of life science includes the study of humans,
but other species, such as organisms and life forms are
included in the field.
The University has had a stake in many newsworthy
research discoveries throughout its history, the most recent
being former University Prof. Frances Collins' involvement
in mapping the sequence of the human genome.
Although the Life Sciences Institute -- a six-story build-
ing that will contain research labs, offices, principal investi-
gators, meeting spaces and a small reference library - is
three years from completion, the research community
already feels the excitement.
"I think the institute will enrich the research environ-
ment," human genetics Prof. Miriam Meisler said. "I'm not
expecting funding, but more seminars, good faculty and
The particulars of where the money m-rore than S200
million - will go is undetermined.
"The first step in initiating a new program is getting a
director," Meisler said.
Researchers aren't expecting research money and equip-
ment handed to them on a silver platter.
"That never happens anywhere," biological chem-
istry Prof. Philip Andrews said.
"Typically, say there's a group of researchers who
need a particular instrument that they'll use, say, 80
percent of the time, they then look for funds," Andrews
University researchers expect the initiative to help form
collaborations between great scientific minds through the
next few years.
ACROSS THE NATION'
Budget not on schedule due to disputes
WASHINGTON - A GOP plan to begin sending key spending bills to Presi
dent Clinton collapsed yesterday in a cross-fire between Democrats and consern
ative Republicans, as congressional leaders all but conceded they will be unabl
to wrap up work on the budget by the time they are scheduled to adjourn Oct. 6.
Republicans tried to push through a nearly S33 billion package of spending fo
the Treasury Department, Postal Service and congressional operations, but cor
servative Republicans balked over an election-year pay raise for members A
Democrats strongly objected to what they criticized as heavy-handed GOP tac
tics in forging the package.
In an effort to deny Democrats an opportunity to offer politically sensitive gu
control amendments, GOP leaders negotiated the spending package with Hous
leaders before even bringing it up for an initial vote - and tried to force
through the Senate on a take-it-or-leave it basis. The same package, including
pay raise for federal workers and language repealing a century-old telephon
excise tax, squeaked through the House last week.
But on a 69-to-28 vote, the Senate unexpectedly rejected the package, embar
rassing GOP leaders and underscoring how difficult it will be to resolve diffei
ences over the budget. The impasse has serious political ramifications,
incumbents of both parties are eager to get back onto the campaign traji

The S653.6 million will not be spent in its
entirety this year. Many of the awards will be
used during the next few years, the largest award
will take 10 years to exhaust.
But, the University also spent S46 million
more than last year, an increase of 9.1 percent
from fiscal year 1999. Most of the money used
came from research awards from previous years.
The money awarded this year was spread
among many different departments. The Insti-
tute of Social Research won S122.9 million,
an increase of S81.6 million; the Medical
School won S246.4 million, S44.6 million
more than last year; the School of Public
Health won S51.8 million, a S28.9 million
increase; the College of Literature, Science
and the Arts won S59.1 million, ,n increase
of S17.3 million; and the College of Engi-
neering won 587.1 million, a S16.9 million
more than last year.
"This is due to the hard work of the faculty and
students," Ulaby said. "And also, a lot of credit
goes to President Bollinger, University Provost
