,Bush looks

to

Tenn.

,for votes
From staff and wire reports
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - In a last bit of psycho-
logical warfare, Texas Gov. George W. Bush charged
into Vice President Al Gore's home state on the final day
of the presidential campaign, radiating such confidence
that he extolled the mandate he plans to present to Con-
gress.
"My opponent vows to carry his home state," Bush
declared cheekily before a giddy crowd packed into a
hangar here.
"He may win Washington, D.C., but he's not going to
win Tennessee."
Bush began campaigning in Iowa and New Hamp-
shire 15 months ago in a plane he named "Great Expec-
tations," believing he could make up in charisma and
doggedness what he lacked in resume.
Yesterday, he portrayed himself as the steady hand in
the race, accusing Gore of having forgotten his southern
roots and having reinvented his campaign with each
p fresh political crisis.
Instead of taking the traditional course of finishing
with visits to the most intense battlegrounds, Bush threw
the long ball one last time and said farewell to the trail
deep in traditionally Democratic territory.
The race has tightened in polls, and Bush's crowds,
while still enthusiastic, have diminished in size in the

Gore loses
voice in
final appeal
By Hanna LoPatin
Daily Staff Reporter
FLINT - After a day of campaigning across the
country, Vice President Al Gore, the Democratic presi-
dential hopeful, spoke to a crowd in a hoarse voice, but
cries from the audience more than made up for it.
Beginning in Iowa and traveling through Missouri
before reaching Michigan, Gore made his first of two
final campaign appearances in Michigan at the Local
659 chapter of the United Auto Workers in Flint.
Afterward he visited a nearby church before flying to
Florida for a midnight rally to kick off Election Day.
Gore used his appearances in Michigan - including a
rally in Dearborn on Sunday - to reiterate the impor-
tance of the state in today's election.
"Michigan is more important than ever," Gore said.
"And Flint may decide what happens in this state."
"I can tell from this gathering," Gore said to the more
than 700 supporters "... that tomorrow we're going to
carry Michigan."
Former U.S. Sen. Don Riegle explained the impor-
tance of the state when he spoke before the vice presi-
dent's arrival.
"He's here because he needs every single vote that we
can deliver," he said. "We have a job to do."
U.S. Sen. Carl Levin also spoke on the importance of

.Green Party supporters
con front Rivers on Diag

By Jeremy W. Peters
Daily Staff Reporter
The ongoing debate between
Green Party loyalists and Democ-
rats extended to the Diag yester-
day when supporters of Green
Party presidential candidate
Ralph Nader clashed with local
Democrats.
Numbering 30, Nader backers
surrounded U.S. Rep. Lynn
Rivers (D-Ann Arbor) in front of
the Students for Gore tent as she
staunchly defended her party and
Al Gore for nearly two hours.
Flanked by fellow Democrats
Liz Brater and state House of Rep-

resentatives candidate Chris Kolb,
Rivers challenged the Greens.
"Do you believe the American
people are going to vote for
someone on the fringe of either
party?" Rivers asked the large
group of Nader supporters. "The
presidency is surely a centrist
position."
But Green Party members say
they are tired of having their can-
didate used to further Gore's
campaign against Republican
candidate George W Bush with
the axiom - a vote for Nader is
a vote for Bush.
"That's a total fallacy," said
Michigan Green Party organizer

Dawn McClain. "I know Al
Gore had a 10 point lead in the
polls in September and if he
couldn't hold on to it that's his
fault."
Kolb expressed distress over
what he said was a congruence of
ideology between Democrats and
many Greens.
"This whole exchange was
progressives getting together to
talk about issues we all care
about. And on 99.9 percent of
these issues, we agree. Yet we're
supporting different people for
president," he said..
Rivers said that although she is

University Board of Regents seats
the potential to change the Uni-
versity's position on several key
issues over the next eight years.
Each of the candidates have very
different agendas.
Incumbent Regent Rebecca
McGowan (D-Ann Arbor) said she
wants to work to continue making
the University one of the best in the
nation.
My own view of Michigan is
we're supposed to be as great as we
can possibly be. That's a value
here," McGowan said. "I worry
there is another value here which
says what's wrong with being the
best in Michigan? I don't think

By David Enders
Daily Staff Reporter
As a sophomore, Jason Stoops had an experi-
ence in 1996 he said will prevent him from
returning to University Health Services. Stoops
said a misdiagnosis caused him to miss a final
exam.
"Maybe a week before finals, my ear hurt pret-
ty bad and I couldn't really swallow," said
Stoops, now an Engineering graduate student. "I
went into UHS - I had this stuff before - it felt
like an ear infection. I went in there, and they
told me it was just a virus. I asked them if they
could give me some medication, and they told
me to just take Tylenol. I went home, went to my
family doctor and he told me very conclusively it
was a serious inner-ear infection."
Stoops said that he feels if he had received
medication sooner, he would not have been ill
during exams. "Because of the misdiagnosis, I
had to miss one of my finals," he said.
Stoops did not file a complaint with UHS.
"I didn't feel it was worth it. I iust told myself I

From 1994 to 1999, an average of 121 people
per year filed official complaints with UHS, Win-
field said. "Most complaints come by our 'Com-
ments Please' forms and our Website, while a
lesser amount arrive by face-to-face encounters
with our public relations department," Winfield
said in a written statement. "It is my general
impression over the years that most complaints
have to do with process issues, such as the walk-
in procedures and appointment procedures, wait
times, billing concerns, construction dust and
noise, etc. and a lesser amount are related to
