Members of the University's Interfraternity Council
decided Wednesday to vote on whether to expel the campus
chapter of Zeta Beta Tau fraternity from the association.
The decision was made by the group after representatives
of the fraternity failed to attend the last two IFC meetings,
& of the requirements of the probation that has been
placed in the wake of hazing allegations last year.
"We still wanted to make sure they were on track IFC
vice president of Public Relations Jerry Mangona said.
Forty-seven members of ZBT were expelled from the fra-
ternity earlier this year in connection to alleged hazing inci-
dents including an

ZBT president Israel
Nosnick said fraternity members missed the first meeting
because of miscommunication and the second because of an
academic conflict.
"The way that our house is running right now is great.
very happy with it," Nosnick said.
According to the IFC, ZBT had also failed to submit
written acknowledgment of their probation and held an
unregistered party Monday night. Both are violations of the
probation, and the party was also a violation of normal IFC
policy. Nosnick said the fraternity submitted the acknowl-
edgment yesterday and that no official sanctions had been
taken against ZBT for the alleged party. "It's our goal to
work with IFC and be a productive part of the Greek com-
munity" Nosnick said.
The vote will occur at the Oct. 15 IFC meeting. A two-
t ds majority of IFC presidents are needed to expel ZBT.
At that time, they'll be able to present whatever informa-
tion they want," Silver said.
"A vote to expel is huge," Mangona said. "It doesn't hap-
pen everyday."
ZBT did conduct rush activities this fall, Silver said. Mem-
bers of ZBT's national chapter could not be reached.
Silver said preliminary numbers indicate this fall's rush
to be the biggest ever on campus, with more than 600 stu-
dcnts registering and more than 400 accepting bids. IFC is
extending rush because of the expressed interest. An addi-
al rush meeting will take place on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in
t e Wolverine Room in the Michigan Union.
"That's the first time we've ever done that," Silver said.

Before last night's vice presidential
debate, the most many Americans
had ever seen of Dick Cheney and
Joseph Lieberman was a five-second
sound byte on the evening news.
The exchange, which was expected
by many political pundits to be more
heated than Tuesday night's show-
down between Texas Gov. George W.
Bush and Vice President Al Gore,
was civil and at times humorous.
Sitting a few feet apart around a
small table, the vice presidential can-
didates agreed that President Slobo-
dan Milosevic should give up power
in Yugoslavia after an election loss,
-but both opposed the use of Ameri-
can troops to force him out.
In a debate that ranged broadly
over campaign issues, Lieberman, a
two-term Democratic senator from
Connecticut, said Republicans want
to "raid the Medicare trust fund to
pay for their tax cuts." But Cheney
said there was more than enough
money to go around, and it is "totally
reasonable" to give relief to all tax-

of it is going to tax cuts isn't true,"
Cheney said of the huge surpluses
forecast over the next decade.
The two men sparred as they sat
together for their only debate of the
fall campaign. The atmosphere on a
specially constructed stage at Centre
College was far more relaxed than
Tuesday night when presidential can-
didates Al Gore and George W Bush
met in Boston for the first of their
three scheduled encounters.
"Both men were very civil. They
both treated each other with integri-

campus College Democrats.
A few times in the debate, the men
exchanged lighthearted jabs.

Census return
rate grows
By Lizzie Ehrle

With the results of the 2000 Census scheduled to be
released this December, U.S. Census Bureau Director Ken-
neth Prewitt spoke to University students last night at Rack-
ham Auditorium about the differences between the
upcoming census and ones from past decades.
The U.S. Census, which aims to count every person liv-
ing in the country, largely determines federal funding distri-
bution for states and communities.
The census forms for the 2000 census are the first to
allow individuals to mark more than one race when identi-
fying themselves on the form.
"The most important part of the Census 2000 is the
recognition of the multiracial part of the American popula-

U.S. Census Bureau Director Kenneth Prewitt speaks at
Rackham Auditorium last night about the upcoming census
tion," Prewitt said. The census is about identity and people
should be able to identify themselves, he said.
As people had the opportunity to distinguish their person-
al race and ethnic backgrounds, the Census Bureau calculat-
ed 126 different combinations in the forms they received.
These results are extensive and complicated, but their
recognition is healthy, Prewitt said. "We have transformed
the way we'll look at ourselves in terms of races and ethnic-
ities," he said.
