Smock named TSR
By Mica Doctoroff
Daily Staff Reporter
Sociology Prof. Pamela Smock was named
associate director of the University's Institute
for Social Research this month - the world's
largest academic survey and research organi-
zation. Smock will start the position at the
beginning of July.
Smock, who joined the staff in '94 is a sen-
ior associate research scientist at the ISR
Population Studies Center, where she served
as associate director for the past year.
Smock said she is excited about her new
position and plans to focus on hiring, promot-
ing and retaining women and minorities
among researchers in ISR.
Smock specializes in gender, social
inequalities and changing family trends in the
Her research includes topics such as the
economic consequences of divorce and mar-
riage, nonresident fathers, remarriage, single-
mother families, child support and unmarried
ISR Director David Featherman, a sociolo-
gy and psychology professor, said he hopes to
see Smock use her knowledge of diversity
issues to help create the best, most intellectu-
ally and scientifically stimulating ISR faculty

Smock joined the University in 1994 as a
sociology professor as well as a research
associate at the Population Studies Center.
Smock received her bachelor and masters
degrees from the University of Chicago and
earned her doctorate in sociology from the
University of Wisconsin.
Her honors include a predoctoral training
award from the National Institute of Child
Health and Human Development and a Social

Kelly said the Gulf War never really ended and changed into
an economic war punishing civilian populations that can do
nothing about government regimes.
"There's a sentiment in this country that believes that the
war isn't accomplishing anything" she said.
Kelly said students need to be asking why the U.S. cannot
work toward negotiating solutions with other cotntries, engag-
ing in longer conversations with countries like Iraq and relying
on the U.N. for guidance.
"The attention of the world is very much focused right now
on U.S. decisions regarding the Middle East Peace Process and
Iraq," she said. "It's appropriate to ask questions of the media
and elected representatives."
Kelly said negotiation is possible and that Iraq needs to be
seen as more than its leadership.
"We need to start recognizing that the U.S. has been respon-
sible for promoting a state of siege that has primarily targeted
civilians who have no control over the government," she said.
"And in the process it has strengthened the government the
U.S. says it is trying to dislodge."
She stressed the need for a fuller picture and more education
in order to show the realities the U.S. media has refused to
communicate. Kelly also blamed mainstream media for a lack
of adequate coverage.
Kelly criticized the fact that a 1999 U.N. Children's Fund
report, largely attributing the deaths of 50,000 Iraqi children
under the age of five to economic sanctions, received only two
sentences of coverage in the Wall Street Journal. She added
that in 10 years, sanctions caused the- deaths of over half a mil-
lion children above pre-war levels.
"We might suppose that the deaths of over a half million
children might merit more than two sentences in a mainstream
paper, but I don't think you'll find it," she said.
Kelly said the U.S. is supposed to be the beacon of democra-
cy but that democracy is based on information and the general
public lacks knowledge of U.S. policy in the Middle East.
"The U.S. public is disadvantaged in relation to people else-
where," she said. "You can ask desk clerks, taxi drivers, most
anyone in Iraq. They can tell you about economic realities and
the nuances of political discussion, which is quite contrasted to
discussion in our country," she said.
LSA junior Fadi Kiblawi, who helped organize the event,
said Kelly was invited because of her expertise on what he said
is a "hot topic" on campus. Numerous speakers on campus
have denounced sanctions, Kiblawi said, adding that present-
ing the humanitarian effect of the sanctions was important.
"Most people on campus are very apathetic to this issue and
most people don't really know what's going on," he said. "Our
goal is to make people aware which we feel in turn will garner
more support ending sanctions.".
Medical student Dan Dorgan said he found it refreshing to
hear a viewpoint he feels is kept silent most of the time.
Dorgan added that Kelly's most important message seemed
to be a push for people to educate themselves and find sources
of information, a message he said he feels applies universally.
"That way people can understand and figure out how to ask
better questions about both sides of the issue, especially chal-
lenging the status quo and mainstream presentation of issues,"

"You can't take your student athletes and put them in
jail," Bill Martin said. "They have a personal life, and you
can't control that. You have to instill upon them the values
and hope they learn the lessons."
"But we can control our boosters," he added.
Shortly before the Ed Martin indictment, Bill Martin said
he would welcome back the former Michigan coach Steve
Fisher, who coached throughout the time when most of the
alleged events occurred. "That invitation still holds for
Steve, the only difference would be that I'd probably have
general counsel sitting next to me," Bill Martin said. "And I
think we'd have some specific questions we'd want to ask

number of complaints about discrimi-
nation and profiling we received from
people and the response we received
from the municipalities we called,"
The public censures say the cities are
unsafe for blacks and advise them
against traveling to the areas in question.
NAN also encouraged consumers not
to shop at any of the city's businesses.
Sam Riddle, Sheffield's consultant
and a University alum, said Novi
received a travel advisory because of
the Novi Expo Center's discriminato-
ry hiring policies and the profiling of
blacks at Twelve Oaks Mall.
"Only 7 percent of the employees
that work at the center are black. And
we've received many phone calls
from African Americans complaining
about they way they were treated at
the Twelve Oaks shopping center," he
But Novi's Chief Operating Officer
Clay Klaver said the advisory against
the city was unfair.
"We don't feel that it was justified
because we don't feel we have prob-
lems with our private businesses or
our police department," he said.
The status of Warren and the East
side of Flint were elevated to travel
warnings rather than advisories
because of the violence that occurred
in the two cities.
In Warren, a pregnant woman suf-
fered a miscarriage and faced charges
after white women at an elementary
school attacked her.
"The police and the prosecutor are
not listening to both sides of the
story," Riddle said.
The act is so outrageous, and the
conduct of the police department
caused us to elevate the city to travel
warning status," he added.
NAN's public censure of the attack
on a black woman and her children by a
gun-wielding mob in Flint has caused
the Federal Bureau of Investigation to
open up its own case on the crime.
"The idea is not to punish anyone,"
Riddle said. "We are just trying to
alter institutional behavioral policy to
make it fairer. Clearly the hate crime
in Flint would have gone unnoticed
and unpunished if we hadn't raised
hell about it."
NAN is currently meeting with
Novi officials and expects to lift the
travel advisory within the next month.
