Bush to tap religious groups for charity
President Bush said yesterday he will tap religious institutions for more chari-
table work, confronting critics who say using public money for such programs
could violate the wall between church and state. "Compassion is the work of a.
nation, not just a government," he said.
Bush established a White House office that would distribute billions of dollars
to religious groups and charities over the next 10 years. The president said such
groups grapple daily with "deep needs and real suffering" in communities, and
deserve a chance to compete for taxpayer money for after-school programs,
prison ministries and drug treatment, among other things.
"Government will never be replaced by charities and community groups,"
Bush said. "Yet when we see social needs in America, my administration
will look first to faith-based programs. ... We will not discriminate against
The president signed two executive orders, one to establish a White House
office of religion-based community initiatives, and the other instructing five Cab-
inet-level agencies to create entities to work with religious groups. Bush said he*
issued the second order to clear barriers "that make private groups hesitant to
work with government."
Leahy to vote against Ashcroft confirnmation
The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee said yesterday he will
vote against attorney general-designate John Ashcroft as the Senate neared show-
down votes on the contentious nomination and Republicans continued to predict
The announcement by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the highest ranking of
about a dozen Democrats who have thus far said they will vote against Ashcroft,
came as the judiciary panel scheduled a vote this afternoon on the nomination.
The Senate could vote by the end of the week.
Ashcroft's supporters and foes worked furiously to court the unusually large
number of senators, virtually all of them Democrats, who have yet to declare a
position on the nomination.
Nowhere was the focus more intense than on Wisconsin's two Democratic sen-
ators, Herb Kohl and Russell Feingold. Both serve on the Judiciary Committee,
and neither has said how he will vote. With each party having nine votes on the
committee, a tie is possible - a development that, although it would do little to
block Ashcroft's confirmation, could boost the morale of his foes.

Knepp attributed Neuman's raise to the scopei
her job and to Cantor's desire to bring the dear
salary in line with many of her colleagues.
"In her first year here, she really showed leade
ship in our largest college ... that it warranted su<
an increase,' Knepp said.
One of the largest increases among the Univers
ty's 13 executive officers' salaries went to Vice Pres
dent for Development Sue Feagin.
Feagin's 7 percent raise was due to her role in t1
University's upcoming fundraising campaign, which
set to begin next year. "Susan's position during ti
time is going to be quite significant," said Universi
spokeswoman Julie Peterson.

Rackham student Karen Miller said she felt that
by enacting the policy, the University wasn't
putting education first.
"We really want the University to prioritize grad-
uate education, all education, over the bottom line
and we feel that this is one of the policies the Uni-
versity is putting out that undermines education,"
GEO Secretary Nick Syrett said he felt the new
policy wouldn't benefit students because it would
give departments an incentive to select less quali-
fied applicants if they were in-state or for another
reason would be paid less.
"You shouldn't be taught by the second best or
the third best," Syrett said.
"You should be taught by the most qualified peo-
ple out there."
lowest among the executive officers. "He wanted to
be in line with what they were able to give everyone
else in the Health System," Peterson said.
Bollinger establishes the salaries for all executive
officers except himself, whose pay increases are
approved by the Board of Regents.
Peterson said the average raises for staff members
and the 2,256 faculty are roughly comparable with
those at universities nationwide. The difference
between faculty and staff increases, Peterson said, is
that many faculty members receive promotions dur-
ing the year while most staff members remain in the
same capacity over several years.
Factors such as generous state appropriations and a
record amount of fundraising revenue combined to
allow modest salary increases, Peterson said. "All the
things that create a healthy financial picture for the
University were in place last year."

not know who they are voting for."
He added, "it is kind of degrading
for justices to solicit money when
they have to rule on things."
In response to Democratic allega-

carve out an overly large sphere of
influence for himself, Steil said,
"that's a false statement because he
