specifically for this reason."Their school is definitely
one that is underprivileged in Detroit, so it gives them
an opportunity they never have," she said.
Students were divided into groups for the day based
on the type of costume they were wearing, the most
popular of which were clowns, witches and the killer
from the "Scream" movies.
The children participated in bowling, spider-mak-
ing, face painting and cookie decorating in addition to
being escorted through the halls of Alice Lloyd for
trick-or-treating. During a cookie-decorating session,
a group of children discussed their experience at the
University, citing the bus ride and the food as their
favorite parts of the day.
Fifth-grader Martino Williams said his favorite part
of the day was "looking into people's dorm rooms."

end at the Reserve Officer Training Corps haunted
house, ROTC Public Affairs Officer Dan Valdez said.
Swinging corpses and chainsaw-operating morti-
cians spooked students as they wound through a dark
maze of tunnels in the basement of North Hall. The
building served as a homeopathic hospital in 1899 and
the basement, according to records, "presumably"
served as the hospital's morgue.

LSA junior Arti Desai attended the haunted house
with her friends for the first time this year.
"Going to a haunted house is the same thing as

Desai said.
Associate psychology and neuroscience Prof. Steven
Maren said Halloween allows people to explore
images of death but in a controllable atmosphere.
"We like to be scared in situations when we can
experience these images of death in a safe environ-
ment," Maren said. "We all have a fear of dying, and
so Halloween is a way to approach that topic and deal
with that subject and images of death."

almost a month into the new fiscal year and just nine days before the election.
The lawmakers met for a rare Sunday session, and Republicans vowed to stay
until Election Day, if necessary, rather than accede to the president's spending

Day, which this year falls Nov. 7. Lawmakers have often returned after elections
to complete work, but in those years always began a break by mid-October.
Republicans pushed a tax-cut package and a spending bill through the House
on Thursday, both of which Clinton has threatened to veto in a sharply partisan
confrontation over tax reductions, school construction, health care and immigra-
The House voted 237-174, mostly along party lines, for a bill that would pare
taxes by S240 billion over the next decade for some small businesses, people
saving for retirement and others. The tally fell short of the 289 votes the House
would need to overturn a veto if all 433 House members voted.
