"I've worried a lot about how

problem with electronic data

have too much accessibility.
Attached to the report is a list of
student concerns, compiled by stu-
dent members of the SACUA Civil
Liberties Board. They are LSA
Senior Beth Bernstein, Public
Heath Graduate Student Christo-
pher Godwin and LSA Senior
Joshua Sellers.
The student members of the
board expressed concerns about the
use of students' Social Security
numbers, the ability of faculty to
monitor student computer usage,
the access to student files and the
lack of a mechanism for students to
see their personal information
stored at the University.

"All I know is that the prints prob-

crime scene) for an identification,"
said McClure, who, along with pros-
ecutors, declined further comment.
A car belonging to Parker's parents
was found Sunday at a Sturbridge,
Mass., truck stop, where workers said
they saw two teens matching the sus-
pects' description Friday night. They
were seen at a New Jersey highway
rest area Saturday morning asking for
rides, police said.
The boys told a trucker who
picked them up in New Jersey that
they were from California and had
hitchhiked to Massachusetts to look
for work, Ward said.
They said they weren't able to find
jobs so they were returning to Cali-

"The truck dt iver had felt sorry
for them. They were close in age to a

22-year veteran said listening to CB
conversations had led to drunken dri-
ving arrests and the capture of an
armed robbery suspect-but nothing
this big.
Audrey McCollum, a friend and.
neighbor of the Zantops, said the
arrests do not ease the pain for tc-
and her husband, Bob.
"These two extraordinary people
are still dead and, in a sense, the
tragedy is extended because if these

proven, what it tells me is that our

The governor and various members of the
legislature have expressed hope that the state
will repeal the tuition tax credit program,
which gives tax credits to parents of students
attending universities that have kept their
tuition increases under the level of inflation.
A repeal of the tuition tax credit would
allow for an across-the-board increase of 3
percent, rather than 1.5 percent to all state
universities, State Budget Director Mary Lan-
noye said Feb. 9. This increase would give the
University an additional $5.4 million.
Among those who have indicated their sup-
port for a repeal are Sen. John Schwarz (R-
Battle Creek), the chairman of the Senate
Higher Education subcommittee, and Sen.
Alma Wheeler Smith (D-Salem Twp.), whose
legislative district includes Ann Arbor.

Few students know about those buried in the cemetery.
"I lived in Markley last year and walked by it every
day," said LSA sophomore Peter Johnson. "I had no
idea so many well-known people were buried there.
But still, it's a cemetery - unless you have a relative
buried there or it's Halloween and you want to joke
around, why would you want to go there?"
LSA freshman Mindy Marburger, who lives in Mary
Markley Residence Hall, said she shares the same sen-
"It looks pretty during the daytime, but at night, it's
a little scary. I don't like walking near it," Marburger
For LSA senior Kevin McCleary, the cemetery's
meaning goes beyond the adventures students can have
"Obviously, it has a lot of history with the people
buried there," he said. "It should be recognized as
more than just a cemetery."

Seniors have until Saturday to vote on tree

Continued from Page 1
spot on the Diag between the Kraus Natural Sci-
ence Building and the flagpole to plant their oak
The Class of 2001 is being asked to choose a spot
for its tree by voting online at
www. umich.edu/~umalumni/ seniors/seniortree.html.
So far, only a few of the 5,000 students sched-
uled to graduate have voted. The deadline for vot-
is Saturday.
For seniors, deciding where the tree should go
might be a hard decision to make. Many students


have their own favorite spots on campus that they
think deserve a little bit of shade, and many stu-
dents have their own opinions about the way the
senior class should leave their mark.
"I think it should be right in front of Ashley's,"
said Music and LSA senior Tom Sinas. "I've spent
more time there than at any other building on
Some other spots mentioned include places on
North Campus, courtyards of residence halls, in
front of students' houses, Michigan Stadium, on
the Diag and in front of certain buildings where
students have spent much of their college careers.
"I think it should be put on North Campus

because there's not enough unification between
the two campuses and it would be nice to make
the North Campus feel like a part of the Universi-
ty," said Vicki Murley, an Engineering senior
whose classes are on North Campus.
The tree can be planted in any one of the
numerous open spaces on campus. But as practical
or significant as each student's reasoning is, the
final decision to where the tree will be planted is
based solely on the number of votes a location
The tree will become a permanent part of the
University after it is planted at the Senior Ceremo-
nial on April 9.
