To Hindu students, Friday marked the m
celebration of Holi, a festive religious
holiday that rests on an ancient tale.
"Holi marks the victory of good over
evil, of the God-fearing Prahlad over his
father, Hrinakashyap. We celebrate it
with colors because colors add to life,"
Pharmacy graduate student Sachin Mit- mark o

Seidel said he immediately called the
Ann Arbor Police Department.
"Forty-five minutes later they strolled
over ... they didn't even bother to take
prints," Seidel said. He said they took a
beer bottle that appeared to be left by the
thieves, but said they would not check it
"They said they never catch anyone
... that's a quote," Seidel added.
The spokesman for the AAPD was
not available for comment yesterday.
Seidel and other apartment residents
had complained to their landlord earlier
this year that one window was not
secure. That window was pried open in
the break-in Friday.
"We called our landlord to fix the
window ... I complained the security
in the window wasn't adequate," Seidel
said. He added that it didn't have a
locking device, only a piece of wood

Before the crime alert was issued for
Friday's peeping tom incident, DPS had
not issued a crime alert for a peeping
tom or home invasion incident since
March 14, when a laptop computer was
stolen from a room in Betsy Barbour
According to DPS spokeswoman
Diane Brown, two suspects that had
been detained for other incidents were
released from jail Wednesday.
"We had two men who were in jail
both on warrants to do with incidents on
Jan. 1 at the Institute for Social
Research" Brown said.
On Feb. 6, DPS issued a crime alert
after a girl was threatened with a gun in
East Quad. But, the crime alert has since
been canceled, following the apprehen-
sion of two suspects.

"The students admitted under the 10-
percent plan have a higher freshman
average than those under the old sys-
tem," she said.
Graduates who were admitted
because of high test scores, like the
Scholastic Aptitude Test and Law
School Admission Test, often contribute
less to their communities than low-scor-
ing graduates because of elitist attitudes,
Under systems like a lottery or the ten-
percent plan, she explained, graduates do
not have the attitude that their accom-
plishments are based on superiority.

representatives to interact with a set
number of student groups through-
out the school year.
Boot said she will work on MSA
projects during the spring and sum-
mer terms, including developing a
bus route to Washtenaw Street and
an airport shuttle.
Eight Blue Party winners will join the
13 elected Students First candidates as
new additions to the assembly next year.
Because the Blue Party was predomi-
nantly in control of MSA heading into
the winter election, the assembly will be
split next year, Blue Party presidential
candidate John Carter said.
With the amount of Blue Party and
Students First representatives virtually
equal, the representatives will have to
put aside their political stances to avoid
major gridlocks. But Glassel said she
anticipates no problems because the two
parties ran on many of the same ideas,
and quality representatives from both
parties were elected.
"We're coming from the same place. I
don't think there's going to be much of a
problem," she said.
Carter agreed, saying that as long as
the assembly stays focused and works
hard, all of the ideas that were pro-
posed during the campaign, such as a
later Spring Break, a campus book
exchange and expanded Entree Plus,
can still happen.
Glassel said she and Boot are excited
to work together, and they "have already
established a good working relationship"
from serving on the Communications
As for losing by the closest margin in
MSA election history, Carter said he
feels no regrets. He said the high voter
turnout shows both parties ran amazing

States does have influence in the situ-
ation, but that they need to be less
biased toward Israel.
"I think the U.S. should sit down
with both," Jackson said. "But, right
now, the U.S. needs to show that
they're not against the Palestinians."
Reda Woodcock, an LSA senior,
said that the situation is beyond sim-
ple U.S. intervention.
"I think the international interven-
tion is definitely necessary, not just
from the U.S.," he said. "The U.S. is
biased and that's why they can't do
any thing to help."
Kiblawi said he believes the U.S.
can do something to help, and that the
key lies in their influence over Israel.
"The U.S. needs to be the moderator"
he said. "Israel depends on the U.S. ...
(U.S. leaders) have not been objective,
but it is in America's best interest to stop
"The biggest problem I have with the
SAT and the LSAT, beyond the message
that they send to people who don't do
well, is the message they send to people
who do do well," she said.
LSA senior Erika Dowdell, a member
of the Defend Affirmative Action Party,
agreed with Guinier that current percep-
tions of merit are unfair.
"The myth of meritocracy is barring
the fact that there is institutional racism
and deep inequalities," she said.
Dowdell said the University's argu-
ments in support of affirmative action
are inadequate. "I'm not a big proponent
of arguments surrounding diversity. I'm
not here to enhance somebody else's
education as a black student."
next year, when he will close out his
senior year as MSAs Business School
representative, instead of dwelling on
Election Board Rep. Patrick Guf-
fey said the results, which were
recalculated after an appeal by the
Blue Party, are completely accurate.
According to the election rules in
place, there should be no doubt that
Boot and Glassel won the election,
No further appeals will be pursued by
the Blue Party, Carter said. Although the
election was extremely close, Boot said
"the closeness of the race will motivate
me to work that much harder" to prove
she is the legitimate winner.
Guffey said the overall election
process was aided by changes to the
MSA Election Code made by Rules
and Election Committee Chair John
Simpson, the Blue Party vice presi-
dential candidate, which required
parties to produce evidence to back
up campaign allegations and created
a Students Rights Advocate to
defend students not involved in the
Still, the board had to put in a lot of
effort and additional improvements need
to be made, Guffey said.
"It's been an honor to be able to be a
part of the process, yet with the amount
of things going on it's been a stressful
experience," he said.
In addition to the 21 seats won by
Students First and the Blue Parties,
the Defend Affirmative Action Party
claimed one seat each in the Law
School and Rackham Graduate

Co-master of ceremonies Thurman
Bear said the Ann Arbor Pow Wow was
established for the benefit of Native
American students at the University.
"We hold the pow wow in Ann Arbor
as an opportunity for the students to
organize it - it's an opportunity for
them to take what was back home and
bring it here,"he said. "There is always a
very special mix of people that come to
the Ann Arbor Pow Wow," Bear said,
noting that the event's popularity has
grown exponentially throughout its 30-
Larry Godfrey, a third-year pow wow
volunteer who has taken part in organiz-
ing pow wows in the Upper Peninsula,
said the event's non-traditional indoor
setting helps participants celebrate the
start of Spring - rain or shine.
"We depended on mother nature to
give us our skies, he said.
LSA senior Tiffany Sharber said
showing respect to elders in the commu-
nity is one of the most important aspects
of the pow wow.
Marking the start of each pow wow
session is the Grand Entry, a ceremony
in which all of the dancers participate in
a procession, representing their respec-
tive tribes with flags, dressed in full
Each dance in the Grand Entry is led
by one man and one woman, called the
Head Dancers, who are responsible for
directing the entire group.
After the Grand Entry is the singing
of the Flag Song, which represents a
tribute to the elders and veterans whose
strength and perseverance is honored in
the following Victory Song.
One special event is the intertribal
dance, where audience members are
free to join Pow Wow dancers on the
"Whether you are red, yellow,
black or white - at one time or
another we were all once a tribal peo-
ple," Bear said. "(The dance) is to
show that all human beings can come
in and dance. There are no blocked
"Just being here is my favorite part.
We have been able to create our very
own community within this building.
People from Michigan, Canada and all
over the United States are part of this
vibrant village," Bear added.
Detroit resident Robert Mounts said
he started dancing at pow wows when he
was 14 years old. "It's my way of saying
that for urban Indians ... even though we
live in the city, we can be Indians too;'
Mounts said. "It gives people a chance to
see who we really are," he added.
