changes.
Being able to use Entree Plus in the
stadium meant students didn't have to
carry cash into football games, Freer
said. "It's definitely a convenience for
students."
LSA freshman Ben Lazarus said he
didn't mind not being able to use
Entre Plus in the stadium. He said he
would rather have cheaper conces-
sions. "It may be better if they just

partying less once the cross country
season geared up.
According to the University's 2001
Student Life Survey, 58 percent of
incoming students reported drinking
before attending the University.
The same survey reported that 44
percent of first-year students had
engaged in binge drinking within two

lowered the prices overall - that
would be more convenient than Entree
Plus."
Galardi said the program, which
originated in MSA during the 2001-
2002 school year and was implement-
ed in the fall of 2002, was a pilot
program and many MSA representa-
tives did not realize the extra work that
needed to go into maintaining it.
"When they took it away, I think it
took people by surprise," she said.
Galardi vowed continued MSA
efforts to alter and revitalize the pro-

gram, mentioning two possible
changes that could make the program
viable - asking stadium vendors to
rent the necessary equipment, rather
than forcing University Housing to
absorb the costs, or scaling the pro-
gram back to smaller sports venues
such as Yost Ice Arena. Levy said
Housing would be amenable to either
approach.
"From MSA's point of view, we're
upset that it didn't work out and we're
going to try to find another way that it
could work," Galardi said.

weeks prior to taking the survey.
The University defines "binge
drinking" as five or more drinks at a
single event for a man and four or
more drinks at a single event for a
woman.
LSA freshman Tien-Huei Hsu said
she was worried about fitting in but
had found a group of friends to hang
out with. She said they had gone to
parties mostly to socialize. "It's better
than I expected," she said. "Every-

one's friendly. But it's only been two
weeks."
Hsu, an international student who
grew up in Michigan but lived most
recently in Singapore, said she met her
group of friends at the international
student orientation.
Hsu said she was worried about
managing studying versus partying.
"Because it's freshman year, you don't
have that heavy a workload so you can
go out and party," she added.

BUSES
Continued from Page1A
Despite the fact that The Link is
free in September and 25 cents for a
standard fare after that, a slow start
has hampered the program's popu-
larity.
Another objective of the program
was to encourage less reliance on
personal transportation in the down-
town area, Stasiak said. The Link
was financed by a federal grant
designed to relieve traffic conges-
tion and improve air quality in
cities reliant on mass transporta-
tion.
"You don't need a car to get around
Ann Arbor," she said.
The Link encompasses only the
downtown area of Ann Arbor, and
some people find The Ride to better
suit their transportation needs.
"I don't know The Link and it does-
n't go to the (south) commuter lot,"
bus patron Derrick Phillips said.
"My wife works attCommunity
High School and we thought she
would be able to commute to work
using it, but because it doesn't start
until 11 a.m., it doesn't help us,"
Ann Arbor resident Larry Maciag
said.
Still, some regular riders of The
Link had positive comments regarding
the service, speed and efficiency of the
bus network. "I think it's very good. I
depend on it," Ann Arbor resident Julie
Chaplin said.

NEW YORK (AP) - The only
videotape known to have captured both
planes slamming into the World Trade
Center, and only the second image of
the first strike, has surfaced on the eve
of the second anniversary of the Sept.
11, 2001, attacks.
The footage, obtained by The New
York Times, was taken by a Czech
immigrant construction worker whose
son at one point came close to acciden-
tally erasing the rare, chilling footage,
the newspaper reported on its website
Saturday.
Federal officials investigating the
trade-center collapse are trying to
obtain a copy of the hourlong tape,
which could cast light on the cause of
the north tower's collapse by helping to
determine factors including the exact

speed at which the first plane traveled,
The Times said.
The only other known footage of the
first plane's impact came from a
French film crew making a documen-
tary about a probationary firefighter.
Pavel Hlava, an immigrant construc-
tion worker from the Czech Republic,
shot footage of the first plane hitting
the north tower as a sport utility vehi-
cle he was riding in entered the Brook-
lyn-Battery Tunnel en route to lower
Manhattan.
Hlava, who made the tape looking
at the camera's relatively low-resolu-
tion LCD display, told The Times he
did not see the first plane as he
focused on the towers. But the tape
shows a whitish object hitting the
tower, followed by dust spurting from

the tower's side and a silvery, expand-
ing cloud.
Passing through the tunnel, Hlava,
his brother and his boss heard a radio
report that a small private plane had
hit the World Trade Center, straight
ahead outside the tunnel. That hardly
prepared them for what they saw
when they emerged: the north tower,
looming over them, bursting with
flames.
As Hlava continued filming, the sec-
ond jet shrieked behind him. He
caught the plane as it shot into the
south tower, exploding into an orange
fireball and sending papers flying in
every direction. Later, after crossing
the Brooklyn Bridge, he focused on
the buildings again as the south tower
tilted to one side and collapsed.

erand, vice president of Planned
Parenthood Mid-Michigan alliance,
Lamerand added that some women
taking Seasonale may be disconcerted
without having a monthly period, a defi-

nite indicator that they are not pregnant.
"It's really about personal prefer-
ence," she said.
For Nursing sophomore Nina Pak,
the words "unnatural" and "weird"
came to mind when hearing about
the potential effects of Seasonale.
"It's like taking the easy way out,"

she said.
LSA sophomore Tiffany Cho said,
"It's just as unnatural as taking regu-
lar birth control ... but I think I
would rather have four periods a year
than 13."
