Winds blew a glass pane through the front of a house on South Division Drive
Saturday, as high winds swept through Ann Arbor this weekend causing damage.

The best comic relief in the show came not from Whoopi
Goldberg, whose comic timing was off the entire night, but
from Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller. The stars of "The Royal
Tenenbaums" dressed up as Harry Potter and Gimli the Dwarf
from "Lord of the Rings" to present the award for Best Cos-
tume Design, but Stiller soon began complaining that he
looked like a "ZZ Top troll-boy" in his outfit, and after trading
insults about their various less-than-successful films, Stiller
stormed off with Wilson crying out "Writer, director, actor,
quitter!" The Best Make-Up Award went to Peter C.=en and
Richard Taylor for "Lord of the Rings" for their interpretation
of creatures from Hobbits to Orcs. Andrew Lesnie won the
award for Best Cinematography for "Lord of the Rings," in
which he used the diverse landscape of New Zealand to create
the mystical world of Middle Earth. "Rings" also won for Best
The winners for Best Costume were Catherine Martin and
Angus Strathie for "Moulin Rouge." Martin and Brigitte Broch
also won an Oscar for Art Direction for "Moulin Rouge"
One of the other upsets of the night came with the Best Edit-
ing Award, which Pietro Scalia, who previously won for "JFK,"
received for "Black Hawk Down." Although "Moulin Rouge"
or "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" were
expected to take the Oscar, Scalia's fast-paced, frantic style,
which is similar to the Oscar-nominated techniques he used in
"Gladiator" captured both the intensity of the battles in the film
and the Academy's attention. "Black Hawk Down" also won
the award for Best Sound.
Pearl Harbor walked away with its one and only Oscar for
Sound Editing.
The first winner of the Best Animated Feature Award was
the bizarre anti-fairy tale "Shrek." The only real competition in
this category was "Monsters, Inc.," and upon the announce-
ment of the winner, Sulley and Mike of "Monsters, Inc." were
shown grimacing and clapping for the victors.
The winner for Best Documentary Feature was "Murder on
a Sunday Morning," and the award for Best Documentary
Short was "Thoth." The award for Best Live Action Short went
to "The Accountant," and Best Animated Short went to "For
the Birds;' which ran theatrically with "Monsters, Inc."
The award for Best Score went to Howard Shore for his epic
and mysterious "Lord of the Rings" soundtrack.
Randy Newman, one of the greatest and most versatile
songwriters ever, has been nominated 16 times in the last 20
years for the Academy Awards. He finally won his first Oscar
for "If I Didn't Have You" from "Monsters, Inc."
The award for Best Original Screenplay went to Julian Fel-
lowes for the convoluted and quirky "Gosford Park," and
Akiva Goldsman got the Best Adapted Screenplay award for
"A Beautiful Mind." Sidney Poitier received an honorary
Academy Award to celebrate his over 50 year career and his
place as the first true black movie star. The Academy honored
director, actor and founder of the Sundance Institute Robert
Redford with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Woody Allen paid homage to his hometown of New York
City with an earnest and rambling monologue in which he
joked about the Academy asking for his Oscars back. Follow-
ing his speech was a tribute to New York - a montage of clas-
sic scenes from New York-based movies.
Later, Kevin Spacey called for a moment of silence in mem-
ory of those who died on Sept. 11. A montage in memory of
prominent actors, directors, writers and producers who died in
2001 included clips of the films of Jack Lemmon, Carroll
O'Connor, animator Chuck Jones, Anthony Quinn and many

there is departure of a senior person," White said.
"People who came to work with that person begin
to reconsider their options. I didn't really expect
anything else."
Bollinger seemed to agree with White
about the fact that some people just like to
work together.
"There are people who sometimes really enjoy
working together, like me and Robert and me and
Susan Feagin," Bollinger said.
"We form a kind of working partnership, and if
it is very productive, when that is broken it's very
natural to try to recreate it."
"I've created a position called senior exec-
utive vice president, which will be one of the
highest in the university. At Columbia, there
is far more work to be done than there are
administrators. Robert will be working on a
variety of projects ... because he has a very
mixed portfolio," Bollinger said.
Kasdin's colleagues said they feel happy for him.
"I think it's a great opportunity for Robert,"
said Vice President and Secretary to the Univer-
sity Lisa Tedesco. "Of course when things like
this happen it's bittersweet for the University."
Cynthia Wilbanks, vice president for govern-
ment relations and interim vice president for

development, said she will "miss Mr. Kasdin as
a colleague and a really talented person."
Tedesco is confident the lack of permanent
positions at the executive level is no cause for
"This is not a normal course - we are in transi-
tion. Our executive officer team was assembled
completely by Lee Bollinger, so we'll just have to
wait and see," she said.
Wilbanks said she agrees that the University is
in a period of transition.
"However, I wouldn't say any of us would want
to let the University come to a standstill," she
added. Wilbanks herself is currently holding
two jobs.
The first, which she has held since 1998, is as
the vice president for government relations.
Site also holds Feagin's old job as vice
president for development on an interim
"While I do have a very busy schedule, I'm
happy to do my part," Wilbanks said.
Tedesco, who devotes much of her time to help-
ing the regents with the presidential search, said
she does not think the holes in the University's
executive offices will cause the regents to hasten
their search.
"I think the regents are on a good timetable"
(with the presidential search), Tedesco said. "I
don't think this will speed it up or slow it down."

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON - Last October,
Army Secretary Thomas White, a for-
mer Enron Corp. executive, met or
phoned former colleagues at the ener-
gy company as many as 13 times prior
to his decision to sell more than
200,000 Enron shares at the end of that
month, according to information he
has provided a House committee.
A letter hand-delivered Friday to the
office of Rep. Henry Waxman (D-
Calif.) the ranking member on the
House Government Reform Committee,
lists 44 calls White made from his home
to former Enron colleagues since taking
office last May. They do not include
calls he may have received. These calls
are in addition to 29 calls to and meet-
ings with Enron colleagues that White
disclosed in January. Those calls, he
specified in the letter Friday, were made
or received in his Pentagon office.

The October telephone calls were
made during a crucial period at Enron.
That was the month in which account-
ing errors and financial mis-statements
first came into view, prompting a
Securities and Exchange Commission
investigation. Those disclosures under-
mined investor confidence and ulti-
mately forced the company to file for
On Oct. 1, Enron shares closed at
$29.15 each. On Oct. 24, White sold
121,663 shares at $16.10 and $16.15 a
share. On Oct. 30, he sold 86,709
shares at $12.86 each. He netted $12.
million. By the end of November, an
Enron share was worth 26 cents.
Under an ethics agreement he
signed before taking office May 31, he
was allowed to sell his shares as late as
Nov. 30. Waxman and others said the
issue is whether White received infor-
mation from colleagues that played a
role in his decision to sell when he did.

students - 65 in total - into the unofficial
results because the other votes did not impact
the results of each school's election,
McGlashen said.
But Carter said other voters, including Univer-
sity students studying abroad, students employed
for the University and MSA candidate Edgar
Zapata had their ballots rejected.
"We're not saying the Election Board has
done anything wrong," Carter said. "We
believe there were flaws in the actual voting
system. We believe that they were using an
old Registrar's list that did not list (Zapata) as
a student."
Carter said Students First candidate Edgar
Zapata was not listed as a student on lists pro-
vided by the Office of the Registrar and there-
fore was not eligible to run in the election.
McGlashen said that although he noticed that
Zapata was not listed as a University student, he
was still allowed him to run in the election
because he is currently an MSA representative
and the chair of the Campus Safety Commission,
a position only University students can hold. He
said the Election Code allows him to grant such a

Carter and Simpson said that, if during the
recount, Zapata is declared to not be a stu-
dent, they will further appeal his involvement
in the election. They said his campaigning
could have influenced students to vote for
Boot and Glassel.
Because of such errors, Simpson said he and
Carter appealed that every vote be manually
recounted to make sure that no voters who had
already graduated were mistakenly permitted to
submit ballots.
"If a list of approximately 400 has many errors,
what does a list of 6,000 votes have?" Simpson
During the ruling session on Carter and
Simpson's appeal, Students First advisor
Doug Tietz told the Central Student Judiciary
that examining the accepted votes is impossi-
ble because, once students submit their votes
on the Website, their name is no longer
attached to their ballot.
The Central Student Judiciary ruled in con-
cordance with this fact, ordering the Election
Board to only check the validity of the excep-
tion votes and release final election results Fri-
day afternoon.
Although the preliminary results indicate that
Boot and Glassel won the election, the appeal
process might last for several weeks.

as a staff and a team and we played
with that emotion (this weekend)."
Despite being an underdog in
both its games this weekend, Michi-
gan overcame all obstacles to
advance to the Frozen Four. After
defeating St. Cloud, one of the best
offensive teams in the nation Friday
night, 4-2, Michigan had to face off
against Denver Saturday night in
what Michigan coach Red Berenson
called the hardest bracket in the
NCAA Tournament.
Michigan locked up its passage to
St. Paul in two weeks when with
just 1:21 remaining in the game
captain Jed Ortmeyer picked up a
loose puck to create a 2-on-1 with
The two performed a give-and-go

failed. The fans did not appear to
debilitate St. Cloud or Denver, but
rather energize and motivate Michigan
players during key stretches of the
At no time this weekend was the
crowd more a factor than on Saturday
after freshman defenseman Eric
Werner took a pass in the slot and
roofed it over Denver goaltender
Wade Dubielewicz for the game-tying
goal five minutes into the third peri-
od. For the next 15 minutes, the crowd
created deafening noise that pushed
Michigan to victory.
Michigan kicked off the scoring
less than a minute into the second
period, Nystrom slammed home a
2-on-l feed from junior John
Shouneyia to put Michigan up 1-0.
Two minutes later, Denver for-
ward Chris Paradise tied the game
at one with a slapshot from the
point after the Pioneers set up their
powerp lay.
Michigan regained the lead when
Mike Komisarek scored on a rising
slap shot from the point while
Dubielewicz was fighting through a
But while on the penalty kill later
in the period Komisarek closed his
hand on the puck in the defensive
zone and threw it the length of the
ice to put the Wolverines down two
men in one of the most perplexing
nlavs of the game.

your hand on the puck, the play is
supposed to be stopped immediate-
ly. I think he just closed it and then
threw it. He was in a desperate state
trying to get the puck out (of the
zone)," he added.
The Wolverines successfully
killed off the 1:05 on the 5-on-3
powerplay, but was unable to pre-
vent the Pioneers from moving the
puck around in front of the crease.
Denver's Devin Doell made Michi-
gan pay for this failure when he slid
the puck into an open net with
Blackburn out of position seconds
after the first penalty expired.
Three minutes later, the Pioneers
took the a 3-2 lead after fourth line
forward Luke Fulghum deflected a
pass from Max Bull past Blackburn
on a 3-on-1 rush.
Werner's goal five minutes into
the third period deadlocked the
game at three apiece for the next 14
minutes and rejuvenated the crowd
and The Wolverines.
Michigan would regain the lead
with just 1:21 remaining in the
game when Michigan captain Jed
Ortmeyer picked up a loose puck to
create a 2-on-1 with Nystrom. The
two performed a give-and-go as
Nystrom fed the puck back to Ort-
meyer in the slot, and the junior
then slipped it past a sprawled-out
The Pioneers entered the game
28-1 when leading after two stan-
zas, and only gave up more than
two goals 10 times in 41 games.
"We came out of intermission
really confident. We expected to
win the game," Berenson said.
"Somehow we were going to make
it happen. We knew we had to play
the best period of the year and we
laid everything out there."
But this win wouldn't have been
possible if not for the stellar play of
some of Michigan's unsung heroes
Friday night against St. Cloud. The
Wolverines received an early goal
from freshman Jason Ryznar to take
a 1-0 lead.
Then in the middle of the first
period, senior Craig Murray and
Milan Gajic scored back-to-back
goals a minute apart.
"This team has a ton of character,
they're oozing with character and
leadership," Berenson said. "Cer-
tainly we weren't supposed to be
playing this weekend or two weeks
from now, but we found a way to
make things happen.
