I '
for month
By Eric Ambinder
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan basketball program
announced yesterday that junior guard
Daniel Horton is expected to be out for
four weeks with a sprained left knee. Hor-
ton injured himself after colliding with a
teammate during practice on Sunday.
"Based on evaluations, it has been deter-
mined that Daniel Horton has a partial
ligament sprain and associated swelling
in the knee," team physician James Car-
penter said in a statement released yester-
day. "We anticipate that this ligament will
heal, and his swelling will resolve over the
course of the next
few weeks. I antici-
pate that he will not
be released for full
activity for approxi-
mately one month."
Horton will
undergo rehab with
the Michigan ath-
letic medical staff
to regain strength in Horton
the knee.
"We are very fortunate to have the
caliber of medical professionals avail-
able to us that we have here at Michi-
gan," coach Tommy Amaker said in a
statement released yesterday. "We will
obviously follow their guidance and
advice as Daniel rehabilitates his knee."
Horton had played in every single game
of his Michigan career before missing
Tuesday night's game against High Point.
He averaged 13.4 points, four assists, 2.6
rebounds in 71 games as a Wolverine. This
season, Horton is averaging 11.7 points per
game - down slightly from last year and
more than three points from his freshman
campaign. But, Horton was brilliant in
Michigan's 61-60 victory over Notre Dame
on Saturday, scoring 11 of the Wolverines'
last 12 points.
Michigan is already without two start-
ing captains - wing Lester Abram and
forward Graham Brown. Abram is out
for the season with an injured shoulder
and Brown for four to six weeks with a
hernia injury. Michigan will most like-
ly have to turn to walk-on wing John
Andrews, freshman Ron Coleman and
junior forward Chris Hunter to start
against South Florida tomorrow.
"We're just kind of figuring out when it's
going to stop," Amaker said about the pleth-
ora of recent injuries after the game against
High Point. "That's the nature of it. If you
talk to many coaches, we all go through it,
and I've been fortunate as a head coach to
never have this occur in the past."
Filling in for Horton Tuesday, junior
guard Dani Wohl logged 30 minutes
against the Panthers. Wohl converted
his one shot attempt, scored four points,
committed four turnovers and had one

A= leaders: Cheap housing needed,
but consensus difficult to reach

By Anne Joling

Over the past two months, neigh-
bors living around the area of the pro-
posed apartment site at 828 Greene
St. have gathered at Ann Arbor Plan-
ning Commission meetings to protest
the 36-bedroom building.
Some neighbors said they
believed a building of that size
would increase traffic in the neigh-
borhood and make it impossible
to park in a place with already
limited parking availability. Oth-
ers spoke of how important their
homes are to them and how a large
influx of students would ruin the
tight-knit dynamics of the neigh-
On Nov. 30, the commission ruled
against the builder's request to devel-
op the site. Like the neighbors who
protested the plan, the main reason
the commission rejected the pro-
posal, saying that they believed the
building was not well-suited for the
area. Many neighbors considered this
a victory in the fight tosave their way
of life.
According to city officials and
many members of the community,
the need to develop more affordable
places to live in Ann Arbor like the
apartment site at 828 Greene St. is a
prominent and pressing need. But it

is difficult to please everyone, when
it comes to actually building new
Remodeling a city of elites
Mayor John Hieftje has attributed
the lack of affordable housing in Ann
Arbor to a variety of things, the two
most prominent being the popularity
of the city and a shortage of available
space in which to build.
"Lots of people want to live here.
We have the lowest unemployment
in the state, a vibrant university, high
tech industries - it's a great place
for people to be. Every community
that's as successful as Ann Arbor has
this problem," Hieftje said. "We're
also very constrained in that we can't
grow - the city limits are there and
there's not much room to develop in
Ann Arbor anymore."
Because of the popularity of the city
and lack of space, some people say
they believe Ann Arbor has reached
a point where only the wealthy can
afford housing.
"If we allow (Ann Arbor) to
become a city of just very high hous-
ing values, it becomes a city of elites,
and we begin to see that other voices,
or voices of people who just happen
to have a lower income, are left out of
the community conversation," Hieftje
said. "So we may become a place -
and we already are a place - where

Don't ask'
By Kristin Ostby

A recent appeals court ruling allowing some
universities to ban military recruiters from cam-
pus could have future implications on the Uni-
versity's Law School and its gay community.
According to last week's ruling in a Phila-
delphia federal appeals court, universities in
Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania are no
longer subject to the federal Solomon Amend-
ment. The amendment allows the government
to withhold funds from universities that refuse
military recruiters.
Opponents of the amendment say many
schools believe the military's "don't ask, don't

policy imp airs military recruiting

tell" policy - which discourages military
service people from discussing their sexuality
- conflicts with antidiscrimination policies
that protect their students on the basis of sexual
"If an employer discriminates on sexual
orientation, they are not allowed to come to
campus. The exception is the military. They do
discriminate based on sexual orientation," said
Susan Guindi, dean for career services at the
Law School.
Guindi said the Solomon Amendment has
steep penalties for schools that do not allow
military recruiters. "If the military is not
allowed on campus, then all funds can be cut
off, not just from the Law School, but from the

entire university," she added.
But the ruling does not yet apply to the Uni-
versity, and Law School Dean Evan Caminker
said, "It's unclear at this point whether it will
ever become a nationwide decision." Caminker
added that it is possible that the plaintiffs in the
case could issue an injunction to stop the Solo-
mon Amendment from applying to universities
Still, some student groups see the ruling as a
positive change. "I think it's a great decision," said
Frederic MacDonal-Dennis, director of the Office
of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs.
"I think that it's been a while in coming, and I'm
glad that the courts have decided that, because I
think now that the universities can uphold their non-

military is losing some

the government."
Cliff Davidson, a member of the University
student group Outlaws, said he is also pleased
with the ruling. Outlaws represents lesbian, gay,
