Ocause it is a private institution, no exact fig-

school takes in was available, but Moore said
it would be fair to say that Notre Dame and
the University of Michigan are the two most
popular brands of collegiate apparel.
"This is a tremendous victory for the WRC
and hundreds of thousands of garment workers
throughout the world," said WRC governing
board member Peter Romer-Friedman. "It's a
,stament to the great work the WRC has done
cently supporting workers rights in Mexico
that one of the largest licensed logo universi-
ties has decided to join the WRC's efforts."
Moore said Notre Dame will also continue

In order to guard against attacks,
Griffiths said it is essential for the
University to constantly watch its
programs for possible glitches.
"I would liken this to walking

ing over your shoulder to make sure
no one's creeping after you," she

She added that the University's
computer system survived a barrage
of hacker attacks in late 1999. Hack-
ers realized researchers were occu-
pied with the impending Y2K crisis
and relaxed their guard on routine
"We were hit by a number of
attacks, and we fended them off suc-
cessfully," Griffiths said.
Napster ordered to

major licensing schools to adopt a code of
conduct for manufacturers in 1997, which has
since been implemented in every one of their
labor contracts. Adidas and Champion are the
college's major licensees, he said.
Notre Dame's code, he said, is one of the
few codes to ban a licensee from producing in
a country that does not allow their workers to
freely organize. Notre Dame has also estab-
lished the Collegiate Living Wage Association
and is doing its own monitoring of factories in
Mexico and Central America.
Aaron Kreider, a member of the Progressive
Student Alliance at Notre Dame, said the
group was happy about the decision to join the
WRC, but has been disappointed at what they
perceive as administrative attempts to exclude
Kreider said although two students are on
the task force, they are not members of his
group, which have been the primary advocates
for the WRC.
He added that he hopes Notre Dame will be
more forthcoming in the information they
have gathered during their monitoring trips
and company disclosure results.
But overall, today is one of the "biggest vic-
tories our group has had," Kreider said.

fon mentioned were "Is (having a clean home) a trait
passed on from parent to child ... or is there something
specific about growing up in a clean home that helps chil-
dren do better?"
Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, a researcher at Teachers' College
at Columbia University who co-wrote the story along
with Dunifon and Greg Duncan of Northwestern Univer-
sity, said that three conclusions could be drawn from the

is more to predicting adults' success than just looking at
school achievement," she said. Other factors she men-
tioned that were important were social and motivational'
Additionally, she added, another conclusion was that

"It is not the clean house per se, but possibly the orga-
nizational skills or the organization of the household and
beliefs about efficiency and organization that are trans-
mitted from parent to child," she added.
Brooks-Gunn said her hope was that interventions
could be developed to help families feel more efficacious,
if the perception is that a lack of a feeling of efficacy is
hampering the development of the child.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A fed-
eral judge yesterday laid down the law
to Napster, saying that once the
recording industry comes up with a
list of copyright songs it wants
removed from the music-swapping
service, Napster will have 72 hours to
The order effectively gives the
recording industry control over the
immediate fate of the Internet music
service that lets computer users down-
load popular songs for free.
Meanwhile, Napster was hit on
another legal front yesterday when the
National Academy of Recording Arts
& Sciences, the producers of the
Grammy Awards, filed a copyright
Napster is fighting to stay online
and retain its popularity while promis-
ing to shift over to a subscription-
based service that charges listeners
and pays royalties to artists. For that,
it needs the cooperation of the music
labels that sued Napster for copyright
The academy's suit mirrors the ones
filed by the recording industry. The
academy is seeking to prohibit Nap-
ster from allowing its millions of
users from downloading and shariig
recordings of live performances aired
at last month's 43rd annual awards
The academy said it owns the rights
to the works and has applied to copy-
right the material. Some of the record-
ings appeared on Napster immediately
after the Feb. 21 broadcast.
Academy president Michael Greene
said the academy and Universal Music
Group, the parent company of
Eminem's record label Interscopo,
now are debating whether to comnets
cially release the broadcast b4'
Eminem's duet of "Stan" with Elton
John now that it is on Napster.
"We remixed that song, and were
looking to put it out to the public with
some of the proceeds going to the
recording academy charities," he said.
Napster did not immediately return
messages seeking comment on the

g students," said Cash. "We plan on
getting massive student support to
help push this bill."
Rackham student Alyssa Picard
spoke to the assembly about LSA's
new policy of "bottom-line budget-
ing." Through this new budget, LSA
departments would benefit by hiring
graduate student instructors who
require less pay.
* "This policy will give you the
cheapest teachers in your classroom
rather than the best," Picard said.
Several assembly members voiced
concerns about the recently released
University Housing policy on solicita-
tion in the residence halls, which
MSA voted to support before actually
seeing the policy.
"It was a mistake for us to pass that
resolution," Curtin said.
"I think (several points of the new
policy) attempt to restrict political
speech in a public place," said Student
Rights Commission Chair Mike
Health Issues Commission Chair
Elise Erickson resigned last night,
saying she needed more time to work
with the Student Health Advisory
Committee that she helped create.
"This is what's going to show that
MSA takes action," Erickson said.

"Students are very receptive," said LSA Rep.
and Michigan Party presidential candidate Doug
Tietz. "Our message of change in MSA will
resound with students."
Not every party has taken this early campaign-
"Students aren't paying attention," said Trea-
surer Siafa Hage. "It's still too early."
Members of the newly formed University
Democratic party feel they have been off to a
good start as well, said LSA Rep. and vice presi-
dential candidate Alicia Johnson.
"I'm so confident in our candidates, I love
them to death," Johnson said.
Only three candidates are running indepen-
dently, a small number compared to previous
years. Among them is MSA President Hideki
Tsutsumi. Many current assembly members are
opposed to his decision to run.
"An assembly is only as successful as their
leader," said student general counsel Alok
Agrawal. "We still don't have confidence in
Vice President Jim Secreto along with other
assembly members have declared that they will
take action to prevent Tsutsumi's re-election.
