math and reading, the option of direct-
ing any funds towards private schools
was enough to make the New Democ-
rat Coalition announce their own edu-
cation plan through of one-time vice
presidential candidate Sen. Joe Lieber-
In a statement made yesterday
morning, Lieberman made it clear that
the two plans have much in common.
"We are happy to say that President
Bush has articulated a set of priorities
that overlap significantly with our New
Democratic proposal," he said.
After pointing out that the Democ-
rats had "serious differences" with
Bush's plan - not only with vouchers
but with the distribution of federal
funds to the poorest communities --
Lieberman added, "... We share a
commitment to strengthening account-
ability, broadening flexibility for local
schools, spurring innovation, and pro-
moting public school choice."
Susan Shafer, spokeswoman for
Michigan Gov. John Engler, said
although the governor opposed the
voucher proposal that ran statewide in
the last election, he strongly supports
Bush's education plan.
"He's supportive of higher stan-
dards of accountability," Shafer said of
the governor. "If parents feel that their
school district isn't performing they
need to have other options"
When asked if the president would
be willing to give ups the voucher por-
tion of the plan to insure the rest of his
education reform proposal, Stanzel said,
"President Bush feels that all portions of
his educational proposal are important
and giving parent's school choice is an
important part of that plan."

"One of the primary missions of
the NCAA is to maintain student
welfare," said Jane Jankowski, assis-

the NCAA. Athletes' safety is "con-

they're there for, which is athletics

The CAC also raised concern
about the difficulty of scheduling a

tices, Huma said.

Issues that may be of pressing con-

Manuel added that there is a stu-

concerns can be addressed.
"The NCAA for at least 10 years
has had a student-athlete advisory in
place," Jankowski said. Student-ath-

changes to NCAA policies.
One recent NCAA amendment
made it possible for student-athletes
to earn up to S2.000 in the off-sea-

Betsy Stephenson, UCLA's asso-
ciate athletic director, said the athlet-

talk with Huma.
Any changes will happen through
the NCAA, Stephenson said. Individ-
ual schools cannot implement their
own measures because NCAA guide-
lines would consider them "extra
benefits." she added.
But amending or changing NCAA
policies is "a daunting process,"
Despite the Steelworkers' pres-
ence, "This is definitely not a union,"
Iluma said. "We are just like any

Summers is a prominent economist and former Harvard
professor, and, according to the Globe, has extensive ties
among people close to the search committee and in fund-
raising circles nationwide.
Wrinn said the search has scoured the world for the
last six months and included mailings to all living
alumni and advertisements in major newspapers asking
for candidate nominations.
The nine-person committee "meets regularly, reads
all the letters, includes a small internal staff and has
fanned out across our campus and the country" for
informal interviews with candidates and people who
can recommend candidates, Wrinn said.

Also testifying for the intervenors was educational pol-
icy expert Gary Orfield. A professor at Harvard, Orfield
said he believed using affirmative action to achieve
diversity is absolutely necessary for a multitude of rea-
A majority of black and white students, he said, are in
segregated schools that give them very little opportunity
to engage with students of different races. Michigan, he
said, is among the most segregated states in the country.
In a study of Harvard and Michigan law students,
Orfield said he found that more than half of the students
had either little or no contact with people of other races.
This kind of segregation has increased over the years,
he said, despite the public's belief that most race prob-
lems have been solved.
"We're going backwards." he said. "We still have pro-
found, pervasive inequality."
But Orfield also cautioned against depending on affir-
mative action to solve race problems.
"Affirmative action needs to be constantly monitored and
altered," he said outside the courtroom. "It's not the solution,
only a way to respond."

Democrats threaten to block Ashcroft
WASHINGTON - Senate Democrats said yesterday that they will block a key
vote scheduled for today on the fate of beleaguered attorney general nominee John
Ashcrofl, a mnove sure to rile Republicans.
Democrats are frustrated because they say Ashcroft has been slow to turn over
material requested by the Senate Judiciary Committee related to his finances, politi-
cal speeches and policies. As a result, Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the con-
tee's senior Democrat, told Republicans late yesterday that he plans to put a hold on
the much-anticipated vote.
The Republicans have no power to stop the move because committee rules allow
any member to force a one-week delay in a vote.
"I don't think we have a full record" of Ashcrot's career, said Sen Edward
Kennedy (D-Mass). "We want to make sure we have all the material first."
The delay will give Democrats more time to look for vulnerabilities in Ashcrofi's
voluminous 25-year record in Missouri and Washington, a record that has sparked
outrage among civil-rights leaders, abortion activists and others. But the procedural
move also could further damage their fi-ayed relations with Republicans, who have
charged that Democrats are beating up on Ashcrotl to embarrass President Bush.
"I think it would be a bit unkind to drag this out. People are ready to vote an e
know John Ashcroft," said Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a committee member and
one of Ashcroft's strongest defenders.
