Students examine move-out options at term end

By Michael Kan
Daily Staff Reporter

With the school year ending, most students
are faced with the dilemma of where they can
store their belongings over the summer.
Currently, the University recommends a
variety of methods to help students either
ship or store their possessions. John's Pack &
Ship, a University-endorsed storage and ship-
ping company, offers students an efficient
way to complete the move out process.
"We open nine stations in nine separate
residence halls -for packing, storing or ship-
ping," said manager John Kazanjian. Students
who wish to store their property with this
company can store it at $25 a box for the
entire summer and then have it delivered it to
their residence when they return for the new

school year.
LSA freshman Nick Fry, who plans on
using the service, said, "I'm just packing all
my things and just taking a plane out."
In lieu of paying costly fees, some students
will opt for less expensive means of storage.
Engineering freshman Pratima Ingle said,
"I'm going to leave all my winter clothes with
my aunt who lives in Michigan." She said she
will bring the rest of her possessions home in
two suitcases when she returns home to Oregon.
Even so, many students will choose to not
deal with summer storage and prefer to throw
away or donate their belongings instead.
The University also provides a service at
residence halls, allowing students to donate
their unwanted belongings through the Waste
Management Services. Items ranging from
clothes to packaged foods can be donated at

"It's become evident that students are leaving things
behind that are valuable and even expensive."

the end of the term.
But a new company in Ann Arbor called
Your Auction Partner allows students to auc-
tion their unwanted items online. Employee
Paul York said, "It's become evident that stu-
dents are leaving things behind that are valu-
able and even expensive."
Rather than just getting rid of possessions
they cannot take home or do not want, stu-
dents can make a little bit of cash.
Your Auction Partner offers a service that
sells unwanted student possessions on the

Internet auction website eBay, York said. Stu-
dents can leave their belongings for auction
and the company will make preparations to
sell it online. "We take the pictures of the
product and fill out the information for the
online auction," he added. Once it sells, stu-
dents will then receive a check in the mail.
If it does not sell, York said the product can
always be relisted but for an added cost. He
added even if it does not sell the student can
pick it up, or their company can make sure it
gets donated.

Iraqis cite desire to
mold new regime as
reason to return home
DEARBORN (AP) - While cel-
ebrating the apparent collapse of
Saddam Hussein's government,
Iraqi native Hachem Al Swaychet
says there's more work to be done
- by people like him as well as
coalition forces.
The 40-year-old, who left Iraq
seven years ago, said he had two
brothers killed by the regime.
The Detroit resident now works
in the automotive supply industry
but wants to return to Iraq to help
rebuild the war-torn nation.
"The regime did not take care of
the old people," said Al Swaychet,
who was watching Arabic broad-
casts about the war on a big-screen
TV at Karbalaa Islamic Education
Center yesterday.
"And the children need to learn
how to live."
Al Swaychet is among those who
say they plan to return to visit fami-
ly and friends, live or rebuild fol-
lowing Saddam's fall.
Some of the dozen men gathered
at the ceiter'in this Detroit suburb
before early-afternoon prayer
shared his desire to play a role in a
new Iraq.
"I was a teacher there and I have
a lot of ideas," said Adel Aljaberi,
35, of Detroit, who currently works
at an area gas station. "I could do a
lot of jobs. I would like to go, but
would like to come back later to the
United States."
Aljaberi, who left Iraq eight years
ago, says the United States needs to
follow through on its promise to
support a free Iraq.
But he added that any new gov-
ernment needs to be one of the Iraqi
people, not just hand-picked by
Americans.
"For the American government, I
ask them to pay more attention and
don't think the war is finished,"
Aljaberi said. "You have to stick

scoring chance in the first period,
outshooting Minnesota 15-5 and
scoring at 9:33 when freshman
Andrew Ebbett passed the puck off
the draw to fellow freshman Bran-
don Kaleniecki, who wristed the
puck past Minnesota goaltender
Travis Weber's glove. But the
Wolverines mustered just one goal
in the period in part to some spec-
tacular saves by Weber.
"We really needed to score more
than one goal in the first period,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"We had them on their heels, and
we needed to make those chances
count because you knew that it was
not going to be a one-sided game."
Senior two-year captain Jed Ort-
meyer received a pass from fresh-
man Jeff Tambellini right in front
and put the puck through Weber's
legs, putting the Wolverines up two.
But the Golden Gophers con-
trolled much of the play in the sec-
ond period and cut into the lead
three minutes after Ortmeyer's goal.
Montoya had stopped two initial
shots, but the puck trickled past

with it. But I thank President Bush
for his help."
Detroit and Dearborn contain one
of the nation's largest concentra-
tions of people with roots in the
Middle East, including an Iraqi
community of Chaldeans, Arabs
and Kurds.
An estimated 300,000 Arab-
Americans live in southeastern
Michigan.
The area is home to several
groups dedicated to rebuilding or
promoting a post-Saddam Iraq.
Maha Hussain, president of the
Iraqi Forum for Democracy, said
interest is growing following the
American military's progress.
"There are all kinds of people who
want to go back to help out or to stay,"
Hussain said. "This will happen grad-
ually, and as things settle down, we'll
find more people going."
But even the fall of Baghdad
sparked interest in returning among
area's Iraqi community. At Manera
Travel Agency, Kamillia Marogy
said calls came in this week from
people wondering when they might
be able to fly to Iraq.
"They are interested in going,"
Marogy said. "They have some
family and they would fike'td b
there with the other people, just to
see them and celebrate with them."
Celebrations in Iraq were-ehaed
on the streets of Dearborn, where
hundreds gathered Wednesday at
Hemlock Park and people were seen
flying both Iraqi and American
flags from their cars yesterday. But
the joy was muted as fighting con-
tinued.
Al Swaychet wrote a letter to Bush
thanking him for his efforts to "free
the Iraqi people from the killer."
But Aljaberi noted that Iraqis are
cautious because the United States
didn't fully support their uprising dur-
ing the first Gulf War.
"They say they want freedom for
Iraq, but I'm not sure what kind of
freedom they want," Aljaberi said.
"It doesn't always look like freedom
to me."
him toward the net, allowing for-
ward Troy Riddle to come by the
net and poke it just past the
goalline.
Minnesota then tied the game 1:35
into the third period when freshman
Gino Guyer received a pass in the
middle of the zone from sophomore
Barry Tallackson and one-timed it
through Montoya's legs.
Michigan had numerous chances
to take the lead in overtime, head-
lined by when sophomore Jason
Ryznar got the puck with the entire
net wide open.
But Minnesota defender Paul Mar-
tin dove in front of Ryznar to save the
shot and the game with his stick.
The loss ends the career of six
Michigan seniors, including Ort-
meyer and alternate captain John
Shouneyia, who have stayed with
the program while two classmates
left early for the professional ranks
the past two summers.
"When you lose, it's players like
Jed Ortmeyer (who) don't get
another chance at something like
this," Berenson said.
"They've given so much to the
team and to the program, and they
don't get another chance."

WAR CRIMES

should be doing," he said.
Prof. Dino Kritsiotis added that
the end of the war and regime
change will most likely not be
resolved quickly, no matter who is
in charge. "It is quite possible that
there will be an uprising after the
war is over," he said.
"Futurology is always dangerous
and usually wrong," said Prof.
Brian Simpson before sharing his
"gloomy" outlook with other pan-
telists. *** *
Repeating the infamous adage "all
power corrupts and absolute power

corrupts absolutely," Simpson
expressed concern that the United
States, by committing to the war
despite lacking United Nations
approval, had become too powerful
and too disrespectful toward interna-
tional laws.
Prof. James Hathaway agreed, stat-
ing the war against Iraq is "an illegal
act" because it is "about two power-
ful states having determined that the
government of another state should
be overturned" and not humanitarian
intervention or self-defense.
He said international law states
that only the U.N. Security Council
can choose which government is a
threat to peace and that the United

States and Britain were acting out-
side their jurisdiction in declaring
Iraq a threat to peace. "I am very
skeptical to the idea that kicking a
little butt in the Middle East is going
to restore peace in that part of the
world," Simpson said.
But Prof. Robert Howse disagreed,
stating that the war is "just and justi-
fiable" and that the United States had
no choice but to go to war without
U.N. Security Council approval once
France and Germany threatened to
veto any ultimatum given to Saddam
that included the threat of military
action. "(Saddam) was calling the
(Security Council's) bluff on the use
of force," Howse said.

DIVESTMENT
Continued from Page 1
that in order for Israel to effectively
protect Jewish interests, it must
maintain a Jewish majority, even if
this necessitates excluding Pales-
tinians from Israel.
"Historically, everywhere in the
Arab world Jews are persecuted,"
he said.
"One of the early justifications
for Israel was that it would protect
Jews," Oslick said.
Oslick also said the forum
focused unfairly on Israel. "The
history of the world is the history
of refugees," he said.
"If (Kiblawi's) campaign was
truly focused on equality and jus-
tice, we would divest from almost
every country in the world, espe-
cially Arab countries," he said, cit-
ing historic persecution of Jews in
countries like Libya, Egypt and

"There should be people who are pro-
divestment and people who are anti-
divestment and people who are undecided."
-Carmel Salhi
SAFE Vice Chair

Iraq."Palestinians have to realize
there must be a two-state solution."
Members of the panel said they
were pleased Oslick and others
brought opposing viewpoints to the
forum. SAFE Vice chair Carmel
Salhi, an LSA sophomore, said he
thought the exchange of ideas at the
forum was healthy.
"There should be people who are

pro-divestment and people who are
anti-divestment and people who are
undecided," he said. "It's about edu-
cation."
Zahr, an Engineering senior, said
he had actually hoped more people
opposing divestment had come out,
and Kiblawi said an e-mail had
gone out inviting those opposing
divestment to the forum.
