THIS DAY
In Daily History
'U' opens new
residence hall for
law students
Sept. 23, 1924 - With all living
accommodations for 158 students
filled, the University's Lawyers' Club
and Residence Hall opened its portals
to the men of the Law School over the
weekend.
The first building constructed for the
Lawyers' Club consisted of a main club
room, a huge dining hall and a three-
story residence hall divided into nine
sections.
The main entrance to the new build-
ing, which cost more than $2 million to
construct, faced South State Street.
The hall could accommodate more
than 300 people in the dining hall, and
® all law school students were allowed to

A CURIOUS PARADOX

SAPAC
Continued from page 1A
When a survivor calls the Crisis Line,
the line goes to a cellular phone carried
by the professional coordinator. If she
is on the line, survivors get a voicemail
explaining the situation and providing
information for alternative services, like
SAFE House. Survivors also have the
option of leaving a voicemail with a name
and contact information.
"We have very, very few times when
we actually have overlapping calls,"
Cichy said.
Previously, the Crisis Line used a sys-
tem of pagers, where student volunteers
were notified by an operator when a sur-
vivor called the line. Cichy said the new
system is better, because survivors can
reach help immediately. SAPAC has been
working with their wireless provider to
ensure consistent phone service.
In addition, because the coordina-
tor is a SAPAC staff member, she is
able to relay the information gathered
on-site to the staff member who does
advocacy for survivors. This reduces
the numbers of times a survivor has to
tell her story - originally, opponents
to the changes were concerned that
survivors would have to recount their
traumatic experiences several times in
order to get help.
But opponents to the changes have

element, whichi almost all crisis lines are
based on." she added. ""t's a matter ofcon-
necting with someone who made a com-
mitment because they care, because they
want to be there to listen."
So far, the start-of-the-year workload
- the busiest time of the year for SA PAC
- has been manageable, Cichy said.
But the volume of calls might have gone
down since the changes were announced,
LSA alum and former student activist Mia
White said, because some survivors may
have sought alternative services.
CAPS has also worked to accom-
modate its new sexual assault services,
CAPS director Todd Sevig said. The
office has conducted professional devel-
opment, made handouts and adapted
its website to provide services to sexual
assault survivors.
It also addressed the space issue. Oppo-
nents originally argued that there was lit-
tle room at CAPS to accommodate sexual
assault services. A report issued by the
University last year supported this claim,
citing that CAPS was "constrained by lack
of additional space," according the Mental
Health Work Group report.
Those issues have been resolved, Sevig
said. By the second week of August,
CAPS had created two new offices for the
counselors. "We're in really good shape
with space right now," he said.
The office has created several private
waiting areas for survivors, should they
not want to wait in the public area -

Clad in T-shirts proclaiming "Jews
for Jesus," members of the seemingly
paradoxical organization have made
themselves a presence on the Diag -
prompting criticism from mainstream
Jewish groups.
The group, from San Francisco, says
it is nearing the end of a three-week
evangelical outreach on the campus.
Jews for Jesus volunteer Dena Schultz
said the group is targeting cities with a
population of more than 25,000 Jews.
"The organization desires to engage
Jewish people in the claims of Jesus
being the Messiah. Jewish people all over
the world are considering Hinduism,
Buddhism, but one taboo is still believ-
ing in Jesus. We encourage them to see
for themselves," said Shaun Buchhalter,
director of Detroit's Jews For Jesus.
Buchhalter, who was born to a Jewish
family and raised secular, said all of the
organization's staff was born or married
into Jewish families. He added that they
work with volunteers on campus who
were born into non-Jewish families.
Buchhalter said although a basic belief
in Judaism is the belief in one God, secular
atheistic Jews are still considered Jewish.
Therefore accepting Jesus as the Messiah
doesn't make him any less Jewish.
