reen Hartford, who took the presidency of Meredith College
in North Carolina.
Since then, Senior Associate Vice President of Student
Affairs Frank Cianciola has served as interim dean of stu-
Before going to the University of Toledo,.Willis also
held positions at the University of Missouri at Colum-
bia, Rutgers University, St. John's University and North
Carolina A & T State University.
Willis said he recognizes that there are some chal-
lenges that come with his new position at the Universi-
ty, like managing a larger campus community and
becoming familiar with issues that students here strug-
gle with, versus those that are on the minds of students
at the University of Toledo.
"I used to wear out a couple of pairs of shoes at Tole-
do and then repair the soles," he said.
"I'll have to get them fixed more often or just get
Having had no previous ties to the University and
entering at a time when the University's administration
has many vacant posts, he also faces the challenge of
getting to know the faculty, staff, students and alumni.
Willis said it is difficult to help students without first
being aware of who and what is available for them.
"Certainly students are always concerned about try-
ing to navigate the University. Part of it is trying to
find ways to break down barriers for students," Willis
"Making sure I have a grasp and handle on the Uni-
versity of Michigan community, so I can help students
navigate it, is my no. 1 priority."
His job focuses on helping students become success-
ful alumni, either by showing them the resources avail-
able to them, helping them with problems that are
affecting their academic abilities or promoting student
organizations or student events, he said.
"Students are certainly coming to our campus these
days with all kinds of issues that they are dealing with
at home - personal, academic and financial," Willis
"We just need to be prepared and understand what
those issues are."
"Some of them are a little more deep-rooted and we
need to work with them and give them the resources to
get them back on course," he added. "When you are
dean of students, you can't always pick and choose the
issues that you deal with. You never know what is going
to walk through the door." -
Although he is still getting settled in and cardboard
boxes still decorate his office, he said he is excited
about the new administration.
"I'm sure I'll take a look at things and contribute to
whatever is happening here," he said.
He added that his experience here has been positive
and he is not going to be making any major changes
"In the two weeks that I have been here, people have
been just awesome - real warm and welcoming. Any-
thing that I have asked, people have responded to,"
"People seem to be excited about me being here too,
and that's a good feeling."

it," Disner said
Disner also remembered when it was
his 21st birthday and he did not have
any plans because it was a weeknight
and he had a lot of work. But Lengas
refused to let Disner stay in the house.
"He made the point of dragging me
out," Disner said, adding that Lengas
bought him a beer that night.
Disner also said Lengas was very
interested in his Greek heritage.
"He had a love of Greek music, elec-
tronic music also," Disner said. "He
loved to speak Greek."
The funeral will be Tuesday in Novi.
Dzruilkowski said there will probably
be an additional ceremony with mem-
bers of the fraternity. But Disner said if
Lengas was here, he would not want to
go through it all.
"He would probably rather have peo-
ple celebrate his life happily than
mourn his death," Disner said.
Winston said all registered IFC par-
ties this past weekend were canceled
out of respect for Lengas and the
Sigma Phi brothers. Although he said
plans can always change at the last
minute, he added that as of now, all
plans for the beginning of fraternity
rush this week are still intact and hous-
es can still register for parties next
As for possible sanctions against
Sigma Phi, Winston said no actions
will take place until the police finish
their investigation of Lengas' death.
"Right now we are waiting to get all
the information about what happened
and this young man who died," Winston
said. "Any sanctions that would come
are at the bottom of IFC priorities."

that the case involves more than just
the University of Michigan.
"Universities nationwide are
looking to this case to tell them
whether it's okay to use racial pref-
erences in admissions and, if so,
what limits have to be on those
preferences," he said.
Given the case's national impor-
tance, Levey said, "It's in everyone's
best interest to resolve this as expe-
ditiously as possible without any

from the Court next week whether

granted, the University respondents
will have until Oct. 15 to file their

Alger also said the upcoming
forum hosted by the University will
be an excellent venue for University
students to get more information
about 'the recent developments in
both the University admissions
"It's meant to be an update on
why these issues are important to
the University community," Alger
The panel of speakers at the

CALL FOR PRE-GROUP INTERVIEW
Bush: Next attack is Public Enemy No. 1
President Bush glowered at Robert Mueller as the FBI director rattled off
details of the terrorism investigation for several minutes. Finally, Bush interrupted
the Sept. 14 Oval Office briefing and snapped, "This is not about building a case
He did not want to hear another word about where the terrorists had lived,
when they had bought their plane tickets or how they had spent their last hours.
"This should be about preventing the next attack," he told Mueller. "What's the
intelligence on the next attack?"
With those words, Bush swept away years of FBI doctrine followed since J.
Edgar Hoover's war against bank robbers, communists and spies. Investigating
past crimes is no longer the main priority, Bush was saying: Public Enemy No. 1
is the next terrorist attack.
In the year since, terrorism has transformed Bush's presidency.
He tabled much of his domestic agenda to secure a bigger Pentagon budget and
broader powers for federal police. He is pursuing a catchall Department of Home-
land Security and forged new alliances with foreign countries.
And he has imposed an unprecedented policy allowing the U.S. military to
wage war without provocation.
Arafat to ask for banning of suicide bombing
Yasser Arafat will ask a key meeting of the Palestinian parliament today to-outlaw
suicide bombing and reaffirm the Palestinian commitment to peace with Israel,
according to a draft copy of the Palestinian leader's speech.
But violence continued yesterday on the eve of the parliamentary session. Palestin-
ian security officials said two people were killed by Israeli tank fire in the Gaza Strip,
as Israeli forces advanced along the main road, encircling three refugee camps.
The draft copy of Arafat's speech given to The Associated Press by his office said
the world was waiting for a clear signal that the Palestinians saw peaceful negotia-
tions as the way to resolve their dispute with Israel.
"The Palestinian people are standing against all types of terrorism, whether it is
state terror or individual terror," the text said. "The Palestinian Legislative Council
has to protect Palestinian national interests through final recognition of the state of
Israel and the right of its people to live in peace and security."
It argued that Palestinian bomb attacks gave Israel justification for harsh retaliation.
"Suicide attacks against Israeli civilians in buses, restaurants, cafes and universities
give the Israeli government the ability to hide its crimes," the draft said.

U.S. searches bring
A shattering explosion rattled the
windows yesterday at an Islamic
relief organization. "It's the Ameri-
cans," grumbled Bahader, a stocky,
"Every day they are firing, search-
ing homes, bothering people. Every-
one wants them to leave," he said.
With little fanfare, U.S. special
forces have been scouring the moun-
tains here in Kunar province, about
120 miles northeast of Kabul, for three
months in search of al-Qaida and Tal-
iban fighters and for anti-government
militiamen loyal to former Prime Min-
ister Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.
;The U.S. nilitary has'said little
about operations in Kunar, focusing
instead on missions in southeastern
Afghanistah around the provinces of
Khost and Paktia. However, for the
people of this province, the war is
ever-present in the rumble.
Greens an continues,
plaged by criticism
As he begins his 16th year in Ameri-
ca's toughest economic policy post, Fed-
eral Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan
has seen better days. He is beset by sec-
ond-guessers who blame him for a range
of economic woes, from last year's reces-
sion to the $7 trillion meltdown on Wall
Greenspan himself set off the latest
round of nay-saying. In a recent speech,
he addressed one of critics' biggest com-
plaints - that the Fed was asleep at the
switch in the late 1990s and failed to
avert Wall Street's speculative bubble.
Instead of resolving the debate,
Greenspan generated more heat. Prince-
ton economist Paul Krugman, for one,
contended that Greenspan had been "dis-
It is all a marked reversal from the
view of Greenspan during the heady
Then, he held a near cult-like status on
Wall Street. Books such as the best seller
"Maestro" praised his management of
the U.S. economy.
Cheney: U.S. attack
justified if threatened
The United States is justified in
striking any country it believes is plan-
ning an attack against America;,Vice
President Cheney said yesterday,
applying the Bush administration's
new foreign policy doctrine on pre-
emptive military action to Iraq.
Saddam Hussein has accelerated his
biological weapons programs and is
"actively and aggressively" seeking a
nuclear bomb, Cheney said, citing
unspecified intelligence gathered over
the past 12 months to 14 months. "And
increasingly, we believe the United States
will become the target of those activi-
ties," he said. Cheney and top administra-
tion officials took to yesterday's talk
shows as part of President Bush's effort
to convince the public, Congress and
other countries that action against Sad-
dam is urgently needed.
The officials cited the Sept. 11 attacks
in making the case that the world cannot
wait to find out whether the Iraqi presi-
dent has weapons of mass destruction.
