attended the service and 160 cars
drove in a more than two-mile long
funeral procession.
One of Mayes' roommates, LSA
junior Alissa Zuellig, said each person
at the funeral let go of a balloon at the
burial site.
"It was like a release in a way. It was
something special that Shannon would
have really liked," Zuellio said.
Several students who attended the
funeral also attended last night's vigil
for a smaller and more intimate setting.
"We did this to allow people who

knew her well, or not so well, to come
together to share their memories," said
Brian Judkins, an LSA junior who was
Mayes' big sibling in Phi Alpha Delta.
"She was an unbelievable person who
the world is truly going to miss."
Another of Mayes' roommates,
LSA junior Melanie Gerlach, held
back tears as she spoke about her
friend who had once offered to donate
a kidney to a woman from her church
who was in need of a donor.
Gerlach and others plan to paint the
Rock on Sunday in Mayes' honor.
"She had just come to school here and
she always really wanted to do that, so
she'd love it," Gerlach said.

PRESIDENT'S COMMISSION ON
THE UNDERGRADUATE EXPERIENCE
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to 2 open forums, sponsored by
the President's Commission on the Undergraduate Experience, to express
their thoughts on how the University should prepare and develop tuture
experiences that support our undergraduate education programs. In
what ways can we use our size and resources to prepare to meet the
needs of future undergraduate students that will allow us to maintain a
position of leadership in future decades? These forums have been
scheduled for
October 24, hosted by the lA Student Government, 6pm to 7:30pm,
Angell Hall, Auditorium C and,
October 25, hosted by the Engineering Council, 7pm to 8pm, East Room,
Pierpont Commons.
Please attend one of these forums and give them your opinions and
ideas. Please refer 4uestions to Isabelle64ur-at-Mertha, Ofice of the

what we at the Health Services can do
safely," Winfield said.
The FDA-approved terms state that
a physician distributing mifepristone
must be able to determine the length of
pregnancy and detect any complica-
tions associated with the pregnancy.
The physician must also be capable of
providing 24-hours a day, seven-day a
week care in the case of an incomplete
abortion or severe hemorrhaging.
"Our position may disappoint some
people but we need to act in a medical-
ly responsible fashion," Winfield said.
But some students contend that the
University should make an effort to
offer the drug. "I think they should
eventually create the facility to offer
it," LSA senior Carrie Williams said.
A lack of transportation, especially
for freshman, will make mifepristone
less accessible than if it was offered
within walking distance at UHS,
Williams said.
"It needs to be accessible so it is an
option ... so as a society we adjust to
it," Williams said.
Women's Choice of Ann Arbor, a
health care clinic, is likely to be one of
the first places in Ann Arbor to distrib-
ute mifepristone. "As soon as its avail-
able we will definitely be using it,"
said Paula Davis, office manager of
Women's Choice.

The University IHospitals and Planned
Parenthood of Ann Arbor are also plan-
ning to offer mifepristone, but they do
not have a definite idea of when they
will begin prescribing the pill.
Winfield said the only school in the
Big Ten considering prescribing
mifepristone is the University Wiscon-
sin at Madison.
Scott Spear, clinical director at Wis-
consin's University Health Services,
said the question is whether prescrib-
ing mifepristone is a needed service
when there, Fare other abortion
providers.
"Most Big Ten schools are in big
cities and so universities won't be able
to provide a lower cost or significant
advantage to students by distributing
mifepristone,' Spear said, adding that
if there was "ignificant support from
Wisconsin students, the school would
probably offer mifepristone.
But Wisconsin is at a slight disadvan-
tage for prescribing mifepiistone, Spear
said. t
Other health centers such as the Uni-
versity's may have access to ultrasound
equipment to determine the age of preg-
nancy, while Wisconsin does not.
Mifepristone terminates early preg-
nancy, of 49 days or less, when fol-
lowed by a second pill misoprostol.
About 14 days after taking the mifepri-,
stone a follow-up visit is required to
determine that the abortion was suc-
cessful.

ACROSS TH E ATION _
General defends refueling in Yemen,
WASHINGTON - The former Marine general who arranged for U.S. war-
ships to refuel in Yemen defended his decision yesterday before a Senate panel,
saying all ports in the region are "rats' nests ... for terrorists."
In the first hearing on last week's terrorist attack on the USS Cole that left 17
sailors dead, retired Gen. Anthony Zinni told the Senate Armed Services Com-
mittee that the Yemeni coast is a "sieve" for terrorists, and that its port at Adei is
the best of many undesirable locations to refuel.
Zinni, who headed the Central Command in 1998, when the contract to refuel
Navy ships at Aden was negotiated, said some previously scheduled refueling
stops there had been canceled due to terrorist threats.
But he said a U.S. presence in the Persian Gulf must be maintained to protect
the economy in a region that produces more than,half the world's oil. And he
personally took responsibility for the decision to refuel at Aden, although he said
it had been made in close consultation with security and intelligence officials.
On Oct. 12, a small boat carrying powerful explosives blew a giant hole in the
USS Cole as it refueled in Aden harbor, killing 17 sailors, injuring three dozen
and leaving lingering questions about protection of military personnel abroad.
Although the State Department recently reported that Yemen remains a haven
for terrorists, Zinni said he is convinced the Yemeni government wants to W
with the United States to combat terrorism.

Clinton attacks Bush
for clouding issues
WASHINGTON - In remarks laced
with humor, sarcasm and trenchant par-
tisan rhetoric, President Clinton yester-
day departed from a planned speech on
education and instead lit into the GOP
and George W. Bush, accusing them of
trying to "cloud the issues" and-distort
the administration's record.
Appearing before cheering congres-
sional Democrats on Capitol Hill, Clin-
ton brutally critiqued Bush's
performance in his final debate with
Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday
night, saying at one point "I almost
gagged" when Bush claimed credit for.
HMO legislation in Texas that he origi-
nally vetoed.
Clinton also blasted Republicans for
dragging out year-end budget negotia-
tions over education, Medicare, the
minimum wage and a host of other
issues. He threatened to force lawmak-
ers to-stay in town by signing tempo-
rary spending bills - necessary to
keep the government open-lasting only
one-day.

"Can you imagine a Democrat
going home and running for re-elec-
tion saying, 'Vote for me so that next
year I can finish last year's business'?"
Clinton said. "Now we wouldn't do
that and we shouldn't let anybody4o
that. We need to stay here until fae
resolve this."
Florida Everglades
restoration begins
WASHINGTON - The House
yesterday approved the first phase of a
57.8 billion plan to restore the Florida
Everglades, one of the largest such
environmental projects in the Unitdd
States.
More than half of the 300-mil
long Everglades ecosystem has bee
destroyed through decades of flood-
control efforts that, while benefiting
farms and new housing communities,
disrupted the natural water flow. The
legislation, part of a larger water
resources bill, authorizes the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers to begin a
36-year project to restore the natural
flow of water into the Everglades.
