Rep. Elizabeth Anderson, who is in

"I guess it would depend on
whether it would go down the street
or on the grass,' Brown said.
Despite the vocal position of the
University, the threat of arrests and
the possibility of ending up naked
on the Internet, students say they
will continue to run the mile.
LSA sophomore Anthony Visioni,
who ran the Mile as a freshman,
said he will run again tomorrow.
"The best thing is all your friends

"I think that most people think
that (police) say they are going to
arrest people every year and they
never see any one getting arrested,"
he said. "People are going to run if

But several student organizations,
including the Interfraternity Council
and Panhellenic Association, have
formally stated they do not approve
of the event.
"We decided this was not a safe
event and we wanted to let our
nmembers know that we're really tak-
ing a stance. We don't think this is a
good idea," said LSA senior
Danielle Whitney, vice president of
public relations for Panhel.
