Ceremon honors
Ford, public pohcy
FORD
Continued from Page 1.
Ford, the 38th president of the United States,
attended the University from 1931 to 1935. During
Ford's tenure, the team twice won the National Cham-
pionship, and he was named Most Valuable Player,
among other honors. He graduated with degrees in
economics and political science, and later attended
Yale Law School.
The Ford School of Public Policy's future location
will be on the northeast corner of State and Hill
Streets, and will house five research centers, as well
as classrooms and offices. It will consolidate the Ford
School, which is currently spread over three loca-
tions, and also possibly allow for the creation of an
undergraduate policy program.
Ford School Dean Rebecca Blank called the promi-
nent location "a clear indicator of the importance the
University has placed on public policy." Prof. Edie
Goldenberg, who teaches political science and public
policy at the Ford School, considered the placement
symbolic. "It's going to be the entrance to the cam-
pus, the gateway from the south of the school," Gold-
enberg said.
Founded in 1914 and originally named the Institute
of Public Administration, the current Ford School
went through several name changes before being
named for the former president in 1999.
Although building designs were approved in June,
the starting date for construction has yet to be set, as
funding for the $32 million project is still under way.

of those decisions (the president) would be making every
day," said Roger Porter, former executive secretary of the
president's economic policy board during the Ford adminis-
tration. He said he has participated in "well excess of 1,000
meetings" with numerous presidents.
"The successful decision makers are the ones who have a
set of principles that are imbedded in terms of the long term
view," Porter said, referring to presidents who make deci-
sions based on short-term political gains.
Also on the panel was Ann Lewis, director of communi-
cations for President Bill Clinton. Lewis mainly talked about
the role of the White House staff in determining policy.
"Preparing information for the president of the United
States ... is the single most important task of the White
House staff," Lewis said. Lewis said part of forming strong
policy is getting outside opinions as well as listening to
advisers. Clinton was a good policy maker because he had a
"personal curiosity and hunger for information," Lewis said.

Webber
asked to

WEBBER
Continued from Page 1
Webber's case, said his attorney, Steven
Fishman. "If the University really wants
a public accounting of the money
expended because of Chris Webber, as
opposed to the money generated because
of Chris Webber (while he played at
Michigan), I'd love to see the bottom
line on that balance sheet,"'Fishman told
The Detroit News.
Edmunds on Tuesday postponed Web-
ber's sentencing for two years while he
devotes 300 hours during the next two
summers to a literacy program at Butzel
Middle School in Detroit. Webber spoke
to 450 students at the school Wednesday,
principal Lucille White told the Detroit
Free Press.
Under a plea agreement, Webber
admitted to lying to the grand jury when
he testified in August 2000 that he
couldn't remember repaying Martin
about $38,200 in 1994.
Martin, a self-described Wolverines
basketball booster, admitted giving a
total of $616,000 to four former Michi-
gan players, including $280,000 to Web-
ber. The others played after the "Fab
Five" reached the NCAA finals in 1992
and 1993.
Martin pleaded guilty in May 2002 to
charges of conspiracy to commit money
laundering. He was awaiting sentencing
when he died in February of a pul-
monary embolism.
RANKINGS
Continued from Page 1
University graduates also received
high marks for their analytical and prob-
lem-solving skills, teamwork orientation
and personal ethics and integrity.
The Wall Street Journal's ranking sys-
tem is based on responses from a total of
2,191 recruiters on 26 student and
school attributes. Other factors taken
into consideration were the students'
communication and interpersonal skills,
ability to work in teams, as well as the
quality of schools' past graduates.
Eighty percent of the total scores
were based on recruiters' perceptions of
the schools and their students, and the
other 20 percent was determined by the
"mass appeal" of the schools, in this
case how many of the survey's partici-
pants recruited from each school.
Each school received ratings from at
least 20 recruiters, who had to be famil-
iar with the schools for which they pro-
vided scores.
Two other Big Ten rivals saw their
business schools drop several places in
the rankings. Michigan State Universi-
ty's Broad School of Business fell from
13 to 21, while Ohio State University's
Fisher School of Business declined from
18 to 25.
Among the top private schools
nationwide, Northwestern's Kellogg
School of Business was ranked fourth,
Harvard's was eighth, Yale's ninth and
Stanford's 30th.

WALK
Continued from Page 1
her father, Rick, who she describes
on the AFSP website as a six-foot-
tall state police detective with a
"large chest and muscular arms"
who "was normally either incredi-
bly happy or devastatingly sad most
of his life." Two years ago, he shot
himself in the head with a .45 cal-
iber handgun, an event that
shocked, angered and saddened
Landry and her family.
"We walk to get rid of the stigma
attached to suicide," Landry said.
"I'm not a freak or a weirdo
because my father killed himself.
He wasn't either. He was a very ill
man who made a bad choice."
In order to highlight and share
the variety of reasons, this year's
event will feature a message board
for participants.
Some of the messages are person-
al statements; others are poems
written to a friend or family mem-
ber.
States one message: "Depression,
suicide and anxiety are debilitating
and often not talked about enough
in order for people to find the
courage to overcome these illness-
es. Having lived through depression
anxiety, I would like to help others
in any way I am able - like others
have helped me."
Depression Center Executive
Director John Greden, who will
participate in the event, said the
silence and stigmas surrounding
depression and suicide are two of
the reasons why public events such
as Into the Light are so beneficial

to the cause they serve.
"Many (people) in our society are
still hesitant to talk about depres-
sion," Greden said. "Younger peo-
ple generally show more openness,
but we still have work to do. Tennis
elbows routinely get discussed;
depression does not."
LSA senior Amanda Barczyk has
been struggling to cope with the
realities of depression since her
high school years, when her uncle
and several peers committed sui-
cide.
She said she continued the strug-
gle during college, when a family
friend, as well as some University
students she had become acquainted
with, succumbed to depression and
killed themselves.
"With the enormous transition of
coming to college, many students
get lost in the shuffle. Plus, with the
added stress of balancing course
work, a social life, and extracurric-
ular activities, it is hard for many
students not to slip into depres-
sion," said Barczyk, who recently
co-founded the student-run group
Teaching, Informing and Preventing
Suicide.
. "The more research that is con-
ducted, the more programs that are
started and the more informed our
community becomes about depres-
sion and suicide, the more likely
everyone will be able to prevent it,"
she added.
"Everyone should be a part of
this walk, because at some point in
everyone's life - if it hasn't hap-
pened already - they will know
someone who is battling depres-
sion."

Corrections:
A story on page IA of yesterday's Daily failed to note that history Prof. Juan
Cole disputes that he referred to al-Qaida as an "irrelevant" fringe group. The
source of the alleged remark was an Oct. 7, 2002, letter to the editor in the Daily
by political science Prof. Zvi Gitelman.
. Cole said al-Qaida consists of 3,000 to 5,000 members worldwide. This was
incorrectly reported on page 5A of yesterday's Daily.
