on the part of the NAACP that BAMN's philoso-
phy was not exactly in line with its own. Togeth-
er, the two organizations cooperated in
coordinating a host of events to precede today's
hearing at 1:30 p.m.
The University of Cincinnati's student gov-
ernment has also taken a vested interest in
these cases, holding forums and seminars to
educate students about affirmative action and
the lawsuits.

LSA junior Aundrea Johnson, programming ch

could end next fall in all four states," said Rob
Richardson, the University of Cincinnati's stu-
dent body president.
The Law School admissions policy was
struck down at the district court level, while
another judge upheld the undergraduate policy.
Student body vice-president Angela Wilson
said she expects protesters to take the result of
today's hearing in stride. A ruling from the
court is expected sometime next year.
"The students here are ready to more for-
ward, whatever the decision here, because we
know this is going to move forward to the
Supreme Court," she said.

They were to spend the night at a church
with the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, a vocal
Cincinnati civil rights activist who used to
march with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
"I have a feeling there's not going to be a lot
of sleeping," said Rackham student Jessica
Curtin, a member of BAMN. "I have a feeling
there's going to be a lot of discussion."
"Everyone is excited and looking forward to
it," she added. About 50 people were to leave
Ann Arbor for Cincinnati as early as 4 a.m.
today, in addition to the 120 who left yesterday
afternoon, Curtin said. Two buses are also leav-

ing from Eastern Michigan University.
The rain that is expected in Cincinnati today
may only serve to increase the marchers' deter-
mination, Curtin said.
Protesters were planning to congregate this
morning on the University of Cincinnati's cam-
pus and walk to nearby Hughes High School,
where the high school students will join them
in their march through the streets of Cincinnati
to the courthouse. Thousands of protesters are
expected to converge on Fountain Square,
Richardson said.
But other students have not heard much
about the hearing. "I see sighs and stuff," said
Cincinnati freshman Nick Rotter, who said he

"It's still largely the case, particularly with blacks
and whites, that we want to live with folks like us,"
Metzger said.
Chicago had the highest white-black segregation
ration nationally, at 87.9.
In Michigan, Flint is the most segregated city, with a
score of 80.2, followed by Warren at 73.2; Detroit,
67.6; Grand Rapids, 65.8; and Lansing, 46.3. No figure
was assigned to Livonia or Sterling Heights because
their black populations were below 1.5 percent of the
total, too small to be statistically meaningful.
Ann Arbor was also the state's most integrated city a
year ago.

The Pentagon initially reported two
were killed. A third died en route to a
hospital. Officials said they had no infor-
mation on the seriousness of the injuries
or how many were Army or Air Force.
All 22 were described as special oper-
ations forces, but officials would not say
whether they were Green Berets,
Rangers, or other kinds of special opera-
tions troops. It appeared likely most
were Green Berets.
The deaths bring to four the number

forces captured in the fighting.
Several hundred U.S. special opera-
tions troops are in Afghanistan to assist
the Afghan opposition forces. The Pen-
tagon has credited them with helping
turn the tide against the Taliban in
northern Afghanistan last month by
enabling more precise and effective U.S.
bombing; in the south they are heavily
engaged in aiding a collection of anti-
Taliban forces in a fierce fight for con-
trol of Kandahar.
U.S. officials familiar with the evolv-
ing battle for Kandahar said it appeared
that the opposition forces were too few
to initiate a final, climactic assault on.
the Taliban and al-Qaida holdouts inside
the city. Nonetheless it remains the Pen-
tagon's strategy to let the opposition
forces take the lead on the ground,
rather than send in the Marines or other
U.S. ground troops to finish the fight.

CLASSES

Islamic Studies department. He said
enrollment in the class has increased
greatly in the past three years, and is
expected to keep growing, and he feels
responsible to encourage a greater
understanding of Islamic culture.
Knysh said his class next semester
will show students that the internal
diversity of Islam creates a variety of
religious viewpoints - including the
fundamentalist and militant beliefs
that the media highlights - because it
has no Pope-like leader to create a uni-
fied doctrine.
Ashutosh Varshney, the director of
the Center for South Asian Studies,
said his political science class, "Poli-
tics of India and South Asia," will also
include more information next semes-
ter about the terrorist situation in
South Asia.
Kennedy said that his course is part
of a broader initiative to advance
scholarship and discussion within the
University. The International Institute
created the initiative following a sym-
posium with University President Lee
Bollinger a week after the terrorist
attacks.
Prof. Norman Yoffee said AAPTIS
has prepared a masters program to
train journalists, security personnel
and businessmen in Arabic language
and culture, and will start developing
it as soon as support from federal
agencies and the University is
received.

WEATHER

sories were gone," said Leslie Smith,
sales manager of Eddie Bauer in Briar-
wood Mall.
"Considering the trend, they are
moving slower this year based on the
weather."
Smith added that last year the
heavy snowstorms forced the mall to
temporarily close.
One business that has benefited
from the weather is Lucky Dog, a hot

dog vendor that operates outside year-
round near the C.C. Little Building.
"We're out here unless winter
doesn't permit us to get in here, like
last January when there was really
heavy snowfall," said hot dog seller
Richard Perrault.
He added that he has been enjoying
the weather and that, subsequently,
Lucky Dog has been fairing better
with more people outside.
"When it's cold, people don't like to
be out as much," Perrault said.
Goss and Shapiro predicted that

colder weather will soon arrive.
"Don't be fooled by this weather,"
Shapiro said. "January is going to
bring out the snow shovel."
Kahlbaum offered an explanation
for the recent wave of warmth.
"An upper-air pattern has been
bringing warmer-than-normal air,"
Kahlbaum said. "We will have a
strong cold front coming through on
Saturday, so it will be getting colder."
Temperatures are expected to be in
the 30s this weekend, with a low of 26
degrees on Saturday.

TAUBMAN
Continued from Page 1A
cence since the indictment, saying that although there might
have been a price-fixing conspiracy between Sotheby's and
Christie's, he did not know about it and did not orchestrate
it.
"As confirmed by the lie-detector test I have taken, the
truth is on my side," Taubman said in response to the indict-
ment. "While any trial is difficult, I look forward to the
opportunity to clear my name in court."
But the jury found Taubman's words hard to believe.
During the trial, which began Nov. 9, prosecutor John
Greene of the U.S. Department of Justice's antitrust divi-
sion focused on testimony from Sotheby's former chief
executive, Diana Brooks, who testified that Taubman and
Tennant held a secret meeting in 1993 in which they
agreed to eliminate discounts and end the rivalry between
the two auction houses. ,
Tennant, who lives Andover, England, has refused to
come to the United States to face charges.
As chairman of the company and real estate mogul, Taub-
man "thought he was above the law," Greene said. "You
don't become a millionaire without knowing how to read
the bottom line."

During the trial, defense attorney Robert Fiske, a grad-
uate of the University's Law School, said Brooks had
conspired to fix prices without Taubman's permission or
knowledge.
Fiske also presented testimony from other Sotheby's
executives who painted Taubman as a simple business-
man who fell asleep at board meetings and did not
have the know-how to plot such a conspiracy with his
rivals.
"We agree with the prosecution that a crime was commit-
ted," Fiske told the jury.
"The question for you is whether Mr. Taubman had any-
thing to do with that agreement."
Brooks pleaded guilty to the same price-fixing charges in
October 1999 and had also faced three years in prison
before testifying against Taubman.
In addition the University of Michigan, Taubman has
also given substantial donations to Brown University
and Harvard University, which have created the Taub-
man Center for Public Policy and American Institutions,
and the Taubman Center for State and Local Govern-
ment, respectively.
Two of Taubman's major contributions to the Detroit area
include Briarwood and Somerset malls.
