White: Financial state
of 'U' is very positive

"It's definitely unusually cold right
now, especially with the earlier warm
weather," LSA sophomore Katherine
Woolley said. "Overall, I think it's

More than 160,000 residents and
institutions in Southeast Michigan
have reported a loss of power to
Detroit Edison Electric Company, the
chief provider of electricity to the area.
Spokesman John Austerberry said that
the company brought in workers from
other states and worked through the
weekend to repair the damage.
"We expect to have the vast majority
back by Tuesday," he said. "Because
the wind storm caused scattered out-
ages, each repair may help only a
handful of people."
Department of Public Safety spokes-
woman Diane Brown said yesterday
that no one has reported any major
damage to University buildings or any
loss of electricity.

In a hearing of the state Senate Subcommittee
on Higher Education Friday, Interim University
President B. Joseph White confirmed that the
financial status of the University is strong.
"Vital signs are by and large very positive,"
White said, also citing recognition of this fact
through a solid bond rating and high excess
demand for University programs.
White expressed three concerns for the future:
Competing with other universities, making a
Michigan education affordable and increasing the
ability to do "great things."
He said support from the state has been
"exceptional," but he is concerned the University
will have difficulty competing with richer private
institutions. "No other university competes with
fewer resources," White said.
"We don't have to be as rich, but we do have to
achieve a threshold level of resources. The dis-
tance between where we are and where we need
to be is a little greater than what' I would feel
comfortable with,"White said.
Sen. John Schwarz (R-Battle Creek), a Univer-
the michigan daily
sity alum, supported the University in its endeav-
ors to compete.
"This is the finest public university, not only in
the United States, but in the world. We were first
to become, in every good sense of the phrase, an
academic Disneyland," Schwarz said.
Schwarz said he has concern for, the number of
students now commuting to campus, and the
sense of community suffers as a result.
White echoed Schwartz, and said he believes a
new residence hall could be built on north cam-
pus within the next five years.
White also repelled the notion that the Univer-
sity of Michigan Hospitals could be sold to a pri-
vate company, as have done other university
medical centers across the nation.
"My feeling at this moment is over my dead
body," White said.
The hearing was the last for Schwarz and Sen.
Alma Wheeler Smith (D-Salem Twp.). Neither
will be eligible for re-election due to term limits,
and both are seeking their respective party's nom-
inations for governor.
Rep. Chris Kolb (D-Ann Arbor) assured White
that "The new cast of characters will rise to the

"This person was using extreme
and inflammatory violation,"
There was a strong reaction to the
fliers from the Muslim community in
"The best response we can have for
such expressions of hate is to come
closer together and show the true
spirit of Ann Arbor," Ann Arbor Pres-
ident of the MCA Nazih Hassan said
in a written statement.
Two people reported seeing the
suspect placing the fliers on a car.
They described him as a middle-aged
white male carrying a dark bag. They
reported the incident to the Ann
Arbor Police Department.
"I'm shocked and I'm horrified
... Whoever did this clearly is a per-
son that wants to create an atmos-
phere of hate after (Sept. 11),"

women Diane Brown said, adding that security in large
residence halls has increased since the incidents began.
A DPS officer is assigned to each major residence hall 24-
hours-a-day under the new heightened security measures.
Two DPS Police officers were seen making rounds in
West Quad yesterday.
The victim of Friday's break-in said DPS showed her pho-
tos of suspects and took evidence for fingerprinting, although
she said she believed the suspect was wearing gloves.
She also said the DPS officer handling her case does
not work weekends.
"It's frustrating.... if I have a question, I can't speak to
the officer," she said. "I have no way to contact him."
The victim said she thought additional security meas-
ures could help prevent break-ins in the future.
"If they could put locks on the doors to the hallways, I
think that would help - it would make it extremely dif-
ficult for (criminals)."
In cooperation with University Housing, DPS has sent
two e-mails to residents to inform them of security
changes this semester, reminding them to take basic safe-
ty precautions such as reporting suspicious persons and
locking room doors.
Also, residence hall staff have been instructed to hang
posters with security information.
The victim of Friday's incident said she had already
taken basic safety precautions prior to the incident.
"I was good about locking my door before," she said.
"The only think I can do to change is be more consistent."
She said the robbery has made her nervous.
"It makes me feel these thieves are always watching,"
the victim said. "It's really unnerving."
