HIGHER ED
Continued from page 1A
a national service plan to pay full college
tuition for hundreds of thousands of stu-
dents who work for two years, a $4,000
tax credit for families with children in
college and $10 billion for fiscal relief
to be distributed among states that keep
tuition down at public universities.
Kerry's $10 billion for states that limit
tuition is part of a proposed $25 bil-
lion one-time general relief fund to help
states with budget deficits. Jason Furman,
economic policy director for the Kerry
campaign, said Michigan would receive
$347 million in fiscal relief from the fed-
eral government in exchange for keeping
tuition increases at or below inflation.
Only Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania
would receive more aid than Michigan
under this plan.
But Kerry has also promised to cut the
federal budget deficit in half within four
years, and recently conceded that he may
have to scale back his national service
plan to meet that goal. Furman said that
means the plan will cover 500,000 stu-
dents per year, instead of the 1 million
originally proposed.
Under Kerry's national service plan,
students would have the option of
working either full-time or part-time

incidents may have been reported.
"We will keep trying to explore
whether or not there was any crimi-
nal activity," Brown said.
Bach said the Hazing Taskforce
is also taking the allegations seri-
ously.
The taskforce, which meets every

for two years. Part-time participants
would receive up to $2,000 per year
for four years of college, and full-time
workers would be given full tuition for
four years at a public university.
Available work in the part-time
service program would include sup-
porting at-risk preschoolers, tutoring
young children in reading and men-
toring at-risk teenagers. The full-time
service program would put students to
work as teachers and teachers' aides
in elementary schools, builders in
low-income housing projects and park
workers among other jobs.
Kerry's proposal calls for enroll-
ing 200,000 students per year in the
full-time program and 300,000 per
year in the part-time program within
a decade.
To pay for his national service plan,
Kerry says he will overhaul student
loans, requiring banks to bid for stu-
dent loan contracts at an auction and
cutting subsidies for banks that give
out student loans. Kerry's campaign
projects this will save the federal gov-
ernment $14 billion over a decade.
Kerry's campaign says the tax cred-
its and fiscal aid for states would be
paid for by rolling back Bush's tax
cuts for people who earn more than
$200,000 a year.
Thursday, will look at all of the
cases individually before making
any decisions regarding disciplin-
ary action. Five officers on the task
force are trained in the investigation
process.
When an allegation arises, the
taskforce first interviews house
members. Depending on the alle-
gations, the taskforce then decides
what action to take, Bach said.

ALCOHOL
Continued from page 1A
Vice President for Student Affairs
E. Royster Harper said the investiga-
tions of hazing were efforts to pro-
tect pledges. "We're going to be very
aggressive to prevent people from
being killed," she said.
Studies show that alcohol is not
only a problem in the fraternities and
sororities. Statistics gathered from
the Student Life Surveys adminis-
tered every two years show a trend of
increasing binge drinking among all
University students. Binge drinking
is defined as four alcoholic drinks or
more in one sitting for a woman and
five or more for a man.
In 1999, 54 percent of students report-
ed that they either abstained from alcohol
or did not binge drink. Only 18 percent
reported being frequent binge drinkers.
Since then, the numbers for frequent binge
drinkers have risen while the numbers of
abstainers have dropped - 25 percent
now report they binge drink frequently
in 2003, while only 48 percent reported
abstaining or not binge drinking.
"The trend is not in a good direction,"
Peterson said. She added that the numbers
do not match up with national averages.
"When you compare our numbers to the
national average, you'll find the number
of abstainers is shrinking - at one point
we were below the national average (of
frequent binge drinkers) and now we're
above it." The national average for college
students in 2001 (the latest available data)
shows that less than 23 percent frequently
binge drink.
Eklund agreed that drinking
behaviors have changed. "The vol-
ume has changed so people are now
routinely drinking high amounts,"
she said.

BASEBALL
Continued from page 1A
fourth.
Lowe, pitching on just two days' rest,
silenced the Yankees' bats and their boast-
ing fans, who just last weekend assumed
New York's seventh pennant in nine years
was all but a lock. He allowed one hit in
six innings. Pedro Martinez started the
seventh, his first relief appearance in five
years, and immediately sparked chants of
the now famous "Who's Your Daddy?"
Three hits and two runs got the crowd
going, but the rally stopped there and
Mark Bellhorn added a solo homer in the
eighth for a 9-3 Boston lead.
Cheering from Red Sox fans could be
heard in the ninth, and when pinch-hitter
Ruben Sierra grounded to second base-
man Pokey Reese for the final out, Bos-
ton players ran onto the field and jumped
together in a mass huddle.
"The greatest comeback in baseball
history," Red Sox owner John Henry
said.
Yankees players slowly walked off,
eliminated on their home field for the sec-
ond straight season.
"They had a lot of heart. They never
gave up," Yankees general manager Brian
Cashman said. "That team never dies. I
give them a lot of credit."
The World Series will start at Fenway
Park on Saturday night against St. Louis
or Houston.
There were several hundred Red Sox
fans behind their dugout on the third-base
side, cheering wildly as Boston players
gave one another bear hugs.
Trot Nixon ran out to the center-field
bleachers to greet friends, then shook
hands with more along the right-field
line.
Now that the Babe's team has been
beaten, Boston can try to reverse The

Curse, win the Series for the first time
since 1918 and bring happiness to the
Hub, which 'can scarcely believe the
tumultuous turn of events.
From Fenway Park to Faneuil Hall,
from Boston Common to Beacon Hill,
the 11th pennant for the Red Sox, the first
since 1986, will be remembered as the
best for one reason: beating New York in
Yankee Stadium, site of last year's Game
7 meltdown.
This was for Williams and Pesky, for
Yastrzemski and Yawkey, for Fisk and
Rice and even Buckner and Nomar, just a
few of the hundreds who suffered the pain
inflicted by their New York neighbors in a
rivalry that has become baseball's best.
None of the previous 25 major league
teams to fall behind 3-0 even forced a
series to seven games. The wild-card Red
Sox became only the third of 239 teams in
the four major North American leagues to
overcome a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven
series and win, joining the 1942 Toronto
Maple Leafs and the 1975 New York
Islanders.
It had been 100 years since Boston last
won a pennant in New York on the final
possible day, a 3-2 victory in a double-
header opener at Hilltop Park in 1904.
New York overcame the Red Sox by
winning the final two games of the 1949
season at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees
won a one-game playoff for the AL East
in 1978 behind Bucky Dent's three-run
homer at Fenway Park, and Aaron Boone
hit the lth-inning homer that won Game
7 last year.
New York, which dropped to 10-2 in
the LCS, will no doubt face a bitter win-
ter, with owner George Steinbrenner like-
ly to take charge of overhauling a roster
that has been short of starting pitching
since the spring.
Brown and Vazquez, who faded in the
second half of the season, were booed by

the sellout crowd of 56,129, accustomed
to perpetual success from their pinstriped
heroes. The Yankees won the AL East for
the seventh straight year, and the Red Sox
were runners-up each time.
The Yankees had a 4-3 lead in the ninth
inning of Game 4 on Sunday night, only
to have Bill Mueller single home the tying
run off Mariano Rivera and Ortiz hit a
12th-inning homer against Paul Quant-
rill.
They held a 4-2 lead in the eighth
inning of Game 5 before Ortiz's homer
off Tom Gordon and Jason Varitek's sac-
rifice fly off Rivera, and Ortiz's winning
single off Esteban Loaiza in the 14th.
Then Curt Schilling, his right ankle
held together by three sutures, beat the
Yankees 4-2 Tuesday night to tie the
series 3-all.
The Yankees invoked all the bad
memories they could for Boston before
the game: Dent threw out the ceremonial
first pitch to Yogi Berra, and Reggie Jack-
son stood behind the cage during batting
practice.
Just like last year, when the Red Sox
went ahead 4-0 in the fourth inning of
Game 7, Boston took an early lead.
Damon, who entered the game 3-for-
29 (.103), singled past Alex Rodriguez
at third base leading off and stole sec-
ond. Manny Ramirez then grounded a
single past Jeter at shortstop. Damon,
who had to hold up to make sure the
ball went into the outfield, was thrown
out when left fielder Hideki Matsui
relayed the ball to Jeter, who threw a
strike to Jorge Posada, with the catcher
blocking Damon at the plate.
That was the highlight for the
Yankees.
Ortiz, who had three homers and
11 RBIs in the series, sent the next
pitch into the right-field seats to put
Boston ahead 2-0.
