The University's Athletic Department will
institute a new policy this weekend prohibiting
all bags and purses' from Michigan Stadium, Yost
Ice Arena and Crisler Arena.
"I certainly hope that people understand that
this is not an attempt to create an inconve-
nience," said Department of Public Safety
spokeswoman Diane Brown. A joint initiative of
the Athletic Department and DPS, the policy is
intended "to provide a safe a sound environment
for fans, players and anyone else attending the
game," Brown added.
The policy was created in response to security
issues following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Prohibited items include alcoholic beverages; all
containers, including aerosol and spray cans;
coolers, bottles, and thermoses; food; cam-
corders and tripods; umbrellas and seat backs;
flags and flagpoles; strollers and weapons.
According to the Athletic Department, the list
of banned items periodically changes. Theinew
policy focuses on fixing a loophole - as long as
fans are allowed to carry containers or back-
packs, weapons and other banned items may be
carried in the container.
"Since September 11, we became more aggres-
sive at enforcing this," Brown said. "We have to
be at a more heightened sense of awareness."
While packs and containers have long been sub-
ject to search, "rarely did large bags ever get
stopped at the gate," she added.
The Athletic Department suggests that people
should bring only what's necessary for tomor-
"What we bring to the games is in terms of
what we wear and how loud we are," said Paul
Hinshaw, a student in "The Crew," a University
fan group that wears hardhats and cheers at foot-
ball games. "What we've done in the past is hang
the opposing team's mascot from a string
attached to a pole, but we were stopped from
doing that." Hinshaw also emphasized that the
spirit of the game should not be affected by the

President Bush addresses the crowd
at the Georgia World Congress Center
last night. Bush urged the nation to
meet the challenge of winning the war.
ATLANTA (AP) - President Bush
assured an uneasy nation last night
that the United States will prevail
against terrorists and said Americans
should not "give in to exaggerated
fears or passing rumors."
In 'a prime-time address, he told
Americans to turn their fears into
action: Volunteer in hospitals, schools,
homeless shelters and at military facil-
ities or train for emergency service
work and join a new civil defense
force he hopes to build.
"We have entered a new era. This
new era requires new responsibilities
- both for the government and our
people," the president said.
Nearly two months after the hijacker
attacks in New York and Washington,
Bush conceded that his administration
does not know who unleashed anthrax
in the U.S. mail. Nor did he offer hope
that U.S. troops would soon find
Osama bin Laden and unravel his
Afghanistan-based terrorist network.
But he confidently predicted victory
abroad - "We will persevere in this
struggle, no matter how long it takes to
prevail" - and lauded Americans for
their actions so far.
"We are a different country than we
were on September 10th: sadder and
less innocent; stronger and more united;
and in the face of ongoing threats, deter-
mined and courageous," the president
told a crowd of 5,000, most of whom
were police, postal workers, firefighters
and other uniformed public servants.
He was interrupted by applause
more than 25 times in his 32-minute
The loudest, applause came at the
end, when he praised the actions of pas-
sengers who fought with hijackers
aboard United Airlines Flight 93 before
it crashed into a Pennsylvania field.
Bush recalled the words of Todd Beam-
er, a 32-year-old businessman and Sui-
day school teacher, who was overhead
on a cell phone to say, "Let's roll" as
passengers charged the terrorists.
"We cannot know every turn this
battle will take. Yet we know our cause
is just and our ultimate victory is
assured," Bush said. "We will no doubt
face new challenges. But we have our
marching orders: My fellow Ameri-
cans, let's roll."
The address was billed as an update
on the war in Afghanistan, the anthrax
scares at home and the new responsi-
bilities of government and all Ameri-

The challenges of making the under-
graduate experience at the University
more than the usual routine of class-
rooms and libraries will fall to Lester
Monts, who was appointed Wednesday
as senior counselor
to the interim pres-
ident for the arts,
three areas of
emphasis in the
tration which are
not fully represent- Monts
ed at the president's table," said B.
Joseph White, who will become interim
president when Lee Bollinger leaves the
University at the end of the semester.
Monts, who will retain his position
as senior vice provost for academic
affairs when he assumes the new posi-
tion Jan. 1, said most students show
involvement and interest in the arts in
their college applications, but these
interests often fall by the wayside when
students enter the University.

plans as interim president of
the University. Page 10A
"I want to see undergraduates
involved to the nth degree," said Monts,
who is also a professor in the School of
Music. "We want to enhance the quality
of the undergraduate experience here
on the campus, and we can do that by
taking a good look and providing a fol-
low-up to the work of the President's
Commission on the Undergraduate
"As I looked over things, it occurred
to me ... we need closer counsel and
advocacy and support for the arts and
diversity and undergraduate education,
and Lester just seemed to me a perfect
candidate to do that," White said.
The University has a reputation for
challenging its students academically,
but often does not do enough to tap
their artistic talents and cultural back-
grounds as well, Monts said.
The University and Ann Arbor have
a rich cultural and artistic environment,
Monts said. The problem is that not
many students take advantage of Uni-

University Prof. David Moore
said he wanted his daughter Elisa's
memory to live on, not with a pol-
ished tombstone, but through a

reach out to people of diverse
Moore realized this wish last
night at a memorial for his daughter
at the Industrial Operations and
Engineering Building on the Univer-
sity's North Campus. Elisa Moore,
who was an Engineering student at
the University, died last year in a car
crash on Election Day while return-
ing to campus after voting. The
memorial ceremony brought togeth-
er Elisa's family and friends and cel-
ebrated her life through the music
she loved. The Elisa Moore Memor-
ial Scholarship was also introduced,
a fund which was developed to help
young women in third world nations
receive a college education.
Moore said the scholarship will
be offered at Caribbean Union Col-
lege, a school on the island of
Trinidad. He said his family decided
to offer the scholarship to students
from Third World nations because a
limited, amount of money can pro-
vide far more assistance to impover-
Moore said although his daugh-
ter's death was heart-rending, the
scholarship continues her work of
reaching out to people from diverse
nationalities by providing hope to
women in poor nations. He said his
daughter befriended international
students through an internship in
Brazil as part of an international
business student organization, and
her work with the late Engineering
Prof. Andrew Crawford in a pro-
gram assisting Bangladesh with its
health care needs.
Former Vice President Al Gore, in
a letter he sent apologizing for not
being able to attend the memorial,
said, "Elisa's initiative and ambition
to the welfare of others is an exam-
ple for all of us to follow. Her spirit
will live on each time this scholar-

students Elisa Moore embraced.

moved to the United States, met

Arguing that the Western and the Muslim
worlds must communicate in order to improve
the international community, Wayne State Uni-
versity Islamic studies Prof Munir Fareed sug-
gested the United States assist the Muslim world,
specifically Afghanistan, in improving its econo-
Fareed lectured to a group of more than 70
people last night at Hutchins Hall in the Law
School on the topic, "Islam and the Western

would be advantageous to both the West and the
Muslim World if Muslim nations were both pro-
ducers and consumers.
"Right now, Muslim nations are only con-
sumers, but if they were to become producers as
well, they could contribute to the international
economy. That would benefit not only the United
States and the Muslim world, but all nations."
Many students and community members
attended the lecture, hoping to participate in dis-
cussions on the Muslim world.
"I attended a lecture by Dr. Sherman Jackson
at St. Mary's Student Parish and it really piqued
my interest in Ilam." said Thuv-Tram Nguven.
