Board put a lot of effort into the election, which he called
"one of the best elections we've ever had."
In defense of his appeal, Carter said the website rejected
many students' votes that he felt should have been counted.
"The only intention was to make sure the votes were
counted," he said.
While the presidential election crisis will be resolved, a
ballot initiative unofficially passed by 58 percent of voters
during the election may lose much of its intended effect. The
initiative raises student fees next year by $1 to provide addi-
tional funding for the Ann Arbor Tenants Union, but the
union may need to use a significant portion of the alloca-
tions to pay for a new office.
Law Rep. Chris Sheehan, who also is president of
AATU's Board of Directors, said the Office Space Alloca-
tion Committee rejected AATU's application for a Universi-
ty office next year.
He said because AATU uses the current office in the
Michigan Union to provide approximately 1,500 students
with everyday services, the office space is "a little more
vital to us than other groups.
"Students on campus who have problems with their land-
lord need to know where we are for counseling," he said.
The request was rejected, Sheehan said, because OSAC
feels AATU does not fit "the traditional mold of a student
group on campus."
Sheehan said AATU is looking into alternative spaces for
their office, but part of the additional funds students will
pay next year will be used to fund office space.
OSAC will officially ratify its decision during the second
week of April.

By looking at the Student Life data, Flax said she is going
to begin focusingon targeting the student communities with
the highest rates of binge drinking.
"We'll continue working with the Greek community, and
I want to try to do some focus work on three residence halls,
one of them being Mary Markley," Flax said. "But, this is
still in the early planning stages."
Flax explained Markley is known to have a large number
of binge drinkers, and a concentrated effort on prevention
and treatment for binge drinking could be helpful there.
No one knows exactly why some residence halls, such as
Markley, have more drinkers than others, but some people
do have a few theories.
"Some speculate that because in the past some halls have
had living-learning communities; friends sign up for those
because they know they'd be together, and those people are
continuing the activities they did in high school together,
such as binge drinking," Flax said.
Thompson said she has talked with friends about the per-
ception of Markley as a residence hall with a lot of student
"It's not necessarily that more people drink at Markley, but
more people are caught drinking at Markley," Thompson said.
"There are more experiences with first-time drinkers. I
live in West Quad, and there are just as many people who
drink here, but there are a lot of sophomores and older peo-
ple who know how to hide it and know how to handle them-
selves so they don't get caught."
One campus stereotype is that students living in frater-
nity or sorority houses binge drink more than students
who do not, but the numbers in the Student Life survey
do support this idea.
Seventy-six percent of Greeks reported binge drinking
recently while only 50 percent of all undergraduate stu-
"There are just as many
people who drink here,but
there are a lot of sophomores
and older people who know
how to hide it and know how
to handle themselves so they
don't get caught."'

Students For Choice also urged
students to push for easier availabil-
ity of the morning after pill from the
University Health Service by mak-
ing appointments in large numbers
with the UHS this Friday.
"At the moment, morning after
pills can only be prescribed to a
student after an appointment with a
UHS clinician, and this is usually
very time-consuming," Morrissey
Morrissey explained that while
the morning after pill is not an
over-the-counter drug, the organiza-
tion is urging UHS to lessen the
hassle of obtaining the pill so stu-
dents can have it on hand in case of
Some students disagreed with the
use of the morning after pill.
"We will not interfere with any
program organized by another
group, but what the morning after
pill proponents are teaching is
wrong," said Andrew Shirvel, LSA
senior and Students For Life presi-

fertilized eggs from the uterus and

LSA sophomore Roz Chambers
said she thought the subject of
emergency contraception can be a
"I personally disagree with the
use of morning after pills because I
feel that being responsible is the
best way to prevent unwanted preg-
nancies," Chambers said.
However, many students agreed
that the morning after pill should be
made more widely available.
"It is safe, it prevents women
from having abortions and is espe-
cially useful in case of rape and
other emergencies," LSA sopho-
more Lauren Cecil said.

with civil rights in our country now," Abouzhar said. "She
was asking very hard-hitting questions of the government
lawyers and she did also come out at times and disagree
with them. ... I don't think it's going to matter if she's
Democrat or Republican."
The hearing brought up several issues including the
accusation that the government violated the First
Amendment by not allowing public viewing of Haddad's
immigration hearings. The plaintiffs claim that immigra-
tion hearings are only closed in extreme cases where
classified information is involved. Otherwise, closed
hearings represent a feature of totalitarian governments.
"Abuses flourish in secret. ... Secrecy I don't think in
any way enhances our national security," Herschel Fink,
a lawyer for the Free Press, said.
Discussion of a memo from Creppy to all immigration
judges was also discussed during the hearing. In the
memo dated Sept. 21, Creppy set forth new regulations
for immigration hearings, including closing them off to
Meanwhile, the government contends that since the
Immigration and Naturalization Service Court is an
administrative court, hearings do not have to be open.
Justice Department attorney Thankful Vanderstar
refused to comment further on the case.
Haddad supporters held a protest outside the court-
house before the hearing. The protesters had mixed
views about what the outcome of the hearing could be.
Moss said she was hopeful that Haddad would benefit
from Edmunds' eventual decision.
"We have a very strong legal case," Moss said.
But, MCA member Miriam Bajeili was not as optimistic.
"I would say I'm very guarded about today's hearing.
... It doesn't address the important issue that people are
being held without charge."

Audience members were impressed
with Chambers' lecture.
LSA senior Brendan Burns, who
had Chambers as a professor in the
past, said, "How do you react to
Ross Chambers? The man is bril-
liant. I can't say enough."
Chambers is the recipient of the
Warner G. Rice Humanities Award,
which was presented to him after the
lecture by LSA Dean Shirley Neu-
man. Neuman praised Chambers and
his many contributions to the Uni-
versity. He is also a Marvin Felheim

results to bring about positive change.
"I meet with the chapter heads each week. This week we
discussed the results and how we want to use them to estab-
lish some type of educational program, especially some-
thing geared more toward the women," Rose said. "I think
we need to focus on the more personal aspect of it and get
the message to maybe hit home a little more."
Rose said Panhel and the Interfraternity Council will try
to work together on some of these educational events, but
the planning is still in the very early stages.

The scene of the normally serene facility was transformed
last night with police officers standing at every entrance.
Late into the night employees and family members
remained at the scene weeping and consoling each other.
When asked about the nature of the dispute between the
man and his family, AAPD Sgt. Michael Logghe said, "It
appears to me it's all from some marital situation."
Logghe was unable to give any more details about the
incident. Police Chief Daniel Oates could not comment on
other family members present at the facility.
As of 12:30 this morning, the residents were back in the
center and police were at the scene processing information.
Normal business was expected to resume this morning.
