But Hanlon said the LSA planning and finance
department will closely monitor department bud-
gets so funds given to the section budget are only
used for "graduate student support."
"There will be no budgetary incentives to hire
LSA students over non-LSA students. The section
budget is the only part of the budget where depart-
ments are not allowed to spend savings on other
general departmental needs. Any savings in the
section budget must be used for graduate support,"
Hanlon also said LSA values the diverse set of
skills and experience every GSI at the University
brings to the colleges in LSA.
"It's of paramount importance to the college and
that's one reason that we spend $3.3 million
because we want to have the most qualified
instructors in the classroom for our undergradu-
ates," Hanlon said.
Mihas said he hopes departments haven't already
made hiring decisions thinking they would be lim-
ited on the GSIs they would be able to hire.
"That seems like that leaves people out. If you
change your policy after all of the decisions have

been made, that doesn't do anything," Mihas said.
Hanlon said teaching experience, while obvious-
ly mandatory in the education of a future professor,
is an important life skill that every student receiv-
ing a doctoral degree should have.
"We believe every graduate student with an LSA
degree should have teaching experience, whether
headed to an academic career or a non-academic
career," he said.
Mihas said he only hopes to teach next year and
he hopes LSA follows through with the plan imple-
"I'd love the opportunity. My only goal is to
teach next year. I learn a lot from it -- teaching
undergraduates," he said.

O'Neal said West Quad isn't structured
in a way that it can be effectively
"There are so many twists and turns in
the building," she said. "I've never seen
any police walking around."
DPS has advised students to take extra
precautions and security measures in and
outside of the residence halls.
The University offers several
resources for victims of sexual assault.
The Sexual Assault Prevention and
Awareness Center offers a 24-hour
crisis line at 936-3333. SAPAC pro-
vides aid for harassment, stalking,
domestic violence and sexual assault,
in addition to Safewalk and North-
Counseling and Psychological Ser-
vices is another resource students can
utilize. CAPS officials said an assault
victim can feel emotions ranging from
anxiety to depression.
CAPS psychologist Jim Etzkorn said
following a sexual assault, the victim can
potentially feel helplessness and fear.
"There is a shock and numbness - a
kind of shutting down," he said.
Eztkorn said a person might not be
able to think clearly following the
"The person might feel sadness, guilt,
shame - as if somehow I'm to blame
for this,"'he said.
He added that having the private space
of the home invaded can increase the
emotions of an assault.
"For some people there might be an
added element of fear and pain that it
happened in a place that they felt secure,
but people have different reactions.
Some people feel they are safe on the
street, but something could happen
there;" Eztkom said.
Several local television stations
reported another incident of assault in
West Quad yesterday afternoon when
three women entered a resident's room
uninvited, but Brown confirmed that the
two incidents were unrelated.
"It so happens that some of the TV
trucks were present when our officers
were responding to that call," Brown
said. "From what we can tell so far, the
resident knew these three women; these
were not strangers."

Organizers of the Personal Responsi-

The initiative is an attempt to legal-

The drive will start tomorrow and

NEWS IN BRIEF.:.i
U.S. stops short of apology to China
The Bush administration offered Beijing a chorus of regrets but no apologyfor
the collision between a U.S. spy plane and a Chinese jet fighter. China,,stil
detaining 24 American crew members, said it was a step in the right direction
amid signs that both sides wanted a face-saving resolution.
President Bush, who issued a stern warning to Beijing a day earlier, had his
advisers extend the olive branch yesterday.
"We regret the loss of life of that Chinese pilot but now we need to move on,"
Secretary of State Colin Powell said. "We need to bring this to a resolution and
we're using every avenue available to us to talk to the Chinese side to exchange
explanations and move on."
White House press secretary Ari Fleischer echoed Powell's remarks, saying
"we have expressed our concern and our regrets about that incident," but he
declined China's demand for an apology. In China, a similar regrets-but-no-apolo-
gy formulation was offered to the nation's foreign minister by the U.S. ambasO
"The United States doesn't understand the reason for an apology," Fleischer
said. "Our airplanes are operating in international airspace, and the United Stites
did nothing wrong."
House criticizes idea to drop Saturday mail
Lawmakers came down hard on the U.S. Postal Service's plan to explore elimi-
nating Saturday mail delivery, with one House member calling it a "fatal mistake"
that could destroy the agency. "This is one of the most self-defeating proposal
I've heard in my life," Rep. Bob Barr (R-Ga.), said yesterday.
"If there's one thing the Postal Service could do that would guarantee' its
demise, it's eliminate service on Saturday."
Facing $2 billion to $3 billion in projected losses this year, the Postal Se~ice
has announced numerous cutbacks over the past months. On Tuesday, agency offi-
cials said they would investigate the possibility of ending virtually all Saturday
mail delivery and closing some post offices and facilities. The changes would
require congressional approval.
Postmaster General William J. Henderson told the House Government Reform
Committee on yesterday that the poor economy and declining mail volume had hit
the agency hard. He urged changes in the law to give the post office more flexibiity
in setting rates and services to contend with rising costs. It now takes almost a year t
Talks fail to produce
end to violence
In their first high-level talks since
Ariel Sharon took office as Israel's
prime minister, Palestinians and
Israelis searched yesterday for a way to
halt the latest surge in Mideast vio-
lence. But back home, the two sides
traded mortar fire in the Gaza Strip.
Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
and two senior Palestinian leaders, Nabil
Shaath and Saeb Erekat, said the sides
would renew security talks, which have
repeatedly broken down during the more
than six months of fighting.
"We are now trying to get out of an
extremely difficult period," Peres said
after a meeting with Greek Foreign
Minister George Papandreou.
In Israel, security officials met late
yesterday for about two hours, said
Mohammed Dahlan, a Palestinian
security chief in Gaza. The exact loca-
tion was undisclosed. A representative
of the CIA took part, he said.
Senate chops Bush
tax cut proposal
President Bush's proposed 10-year,
$1.6 trillion tax cut suffered a double
body blow yesterday as the Senate
tentatively sliced it by $450 billion
and a crucial Republican senator
threatened to oppose it as too costly.
White House officials and GOP
leaders immediately launched an all-
out effort to revive Bush's cherished
tax package. The pivotal lawmaker,
moderate Sen. James Jeffords (R-
Vt.) emerged from a meeting 'With
other Republicans to say, "I thihk I
have an agreement with them":in
