Concluding the events of the
night, University organizations
including Hillel, LGBT and the
United Asian American Association
presented the Ileto family with a
hate-crime quilt. A patch of the

group to show their support in this
Immediately following the pre-
sentation, there was a moment of
silence for all the victims of racial-
ly-motivated or discriminatory acts.
LSA senior Naomi Baum said
attendance was much better than
she expected. "It's unbelievable to
see such a sincere, interested group
of diverse students," said Baum, one
0he speakers for the Ahara Jewish
LGBT and Friends Association.
"The event was really good....

he is trying to do that," Denno said.
Bush has introduced many plans
that have drawn bipartisan support in
his first two weeks as president, but
Ashcroft's nomination has left a
deeply divided Senate.
White House spokesman Ari Fleis-
cher said moments after a Senate
majority had voted for Ashcroft that
Bush "will be very pleased to have his
Cabinet in place and ready to work for
the American people."
"The votes have been bipartisan,
and this vote by definition, too, is
bipartisan," Fleischer said.
Ashcroft's successor in the Senate,
Democrat Jean Carnahan of Missouri,
voted against her family's longtime
political rival. Her late husband, Gov.
Mel Carnahan, defeated Ashcroft
posthumously after a plane crash dur-
ing their campaign, and Jean Carna-
han was appointed to what would have
been his seat in the Senate.
Jean Carnahan said Ashcroft "was
just too divisive for our country." She
called her vote "an act of conscience."
Fleischer said members of the Con-
gressional Black Caucus told Bush on
Wednesday about their "deep passion"
in opposing Ashcroft's nomination but
no one asked the president to with-
draw it.

"They implored him to make cer-
tain that the Department of Justice
enforces civil rights laws, and is sensi-
tive to civil rights concerns. The presi-
dent said, 'I hear you,'" Fleischer said.
"He thinks John Ashcroft is a man of
integrity. He is a good man and he
will enforce the civil rights laws. He
said he talked to John Ashcroft about.
this when selecting him."
Senate Majority Whip Don Nickles
(R-Okla.) said he was "bothered by-
the intensity of opposition" to
"I have absolute, total, complete
confidence that he is going to be one
outstanding attorney general of the
United States," Nickles said. "He's as
qualified as anybody probably has
ever been to be attorney general."
Frustrating the task were several
Democrats who endorsed Ashcroft's
nomination, including Dodd, who -
declared his intention in less-than-
glowing terms late Wednesday.
While there is evidence Ashcroft Y
"can be a healer," Dodd said, "I
remain concerned that he will, as he
appears to have done at times in the
past, submit to the temptation to
divide Americans along racial lines."
Criticism focused on Ashcroft's bat-
tIes against abortion and against a
school desegregation lawsuit while
serving as Missouri governor and
attorney general.

versity to focus on promoting the

outside the house."
Like Lambda Chi Alpha, Interfrater-
nity Council members now face the
challenge of finding locations for
Greek social events. "Ann Arbor isn't
like Wisconsin with 150 bars, so we're
limited to an amount of third-party
vendors," Hustvedt said.
Hustvedt said IFC is in the process of
modifying its social policy to support
alcohol-free houses. "We're encouraging
houses to use third party vendors and

stions are all just chance, but there

is a definite strategy to winning," Boot said.
She said that in order to win, it's impor-
tant to know a wrong answer could lead to a
loss because the other contestant would get

The tournament will air from Feb. 12-23.
The college tournament airs once a year, but
show officials could not say whether Holly-
wood Squares will be visiting the University
of Michigan campus again.

make a conceited effort to move events
out of the chapter houses,"he said.
Small said although having parties
at other locations is an option for
many fraternities, it is too costly for
his chapter, which does not receive
significant funding from nationals.
The chapter's solution has been to hold
fewer parties.
"It's been a bit of a problem," Small
said. "We just try to limit our alcohol
completely. Sometimes it's hard to
control everyone in the house."
After the National Panhellenic Con-
ference passed a resolution last year

that banned member sororities from
co-sponsoring alcohol-related events
with fraternities, many sororities chose
to go to third-party venues, Hustvedt
said. "We are helping them get better
bus prices and we are encouraging
presidents to start moving towards
third-party vendors," he said.
This change has paved the way for
IFC members who have decided to go
alcohol-free. "We've already seen four
times as many party vendors and that's
mostly inspired by sororities and NPC,
since sororities can't sponsor events
with alcohol," Hustvedt said.

tailgate parties. Fifteen activities are planned for the week-
end, including attending different lectures at the University
like Engineering 101 and Geology 117.
A newly added event is a continental breakfast at the Har-
lan Hatcher Graduate Library during which the weekend's
participants can view rare pieces of the University's collec-
tion, such as ancient Egyptian papyrus and the journals of
explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark.
"The University is very excited to display pieces of their
rare collection to the students and their parents;' Hodges said.
Most of the ticketed events are sold out, but there are
plenty of activities.still open for parents who still want to
attend, Hodges said.
Besides being able to see their parents over the weekend,
many students are excited that they will be able to have a
break from residence hall food when their are here to visit,
LSA freshman Jane Viventi said. "There are a bunch of my
friends in my hall that have their parents coming too, so we
are all planning to go out to eat together," Viventi said.
LSA sophomore Jeremy Kressmann said his parents aren't
visiting because of the crowded conditions Parents Weekend
creates in Ann Arbor.
"It is just too congested. My parents are coming up another
weekend when it is less crowded," he said. "There is no park-
ing and it is almost impossible to get reservations."
