DES MOINES, Iowa - Vice Presi-
dent Dick Cheney said yesterday that
he nation faces the threat of another
terrorist attack if voters make the
"wrong choice" on Election Day, sug-
esting that Sen. John Kerry would
follow a pre-Sept. 11 policy of reacting
defensively.
The Kerry-Edwards campaign
immediately rejected those comments
as "scare tactics" that crossed the line.
"It's absolutely essential that eight
weeks from today, on Nov. 2, we make
he right choice, because if we make
he wrong choice then the danger is
that we'll get hit again and we'll be hit
in a way that will be devastating from
he standpoint of the United States,"
Cheney told about 350 supporters at a
own-hall meeting in this Iowa city.
If Kerry were elected, Cheney said
he nation risks falling back into a
"pre-9/l1 mind-set" that terrorist
attacks are criminal acts that require
reactive approach. Instead, he said
Bush's offensive approach works to
oot out terrorists where they plan and
rain, and pressure countries that har-

blasts opponents
nal secunty

bor terrorists.
Cheney pointed to Afghanistan as
a success story in pursuing terrorists
although the Sept. 11 mastermind,
Osama bin Laden, remains at large. In
Iraq, the vice president said, the United
States has taken out a leader who used
weapons of mass destruction against
his own people and harbored other ter-
rorists.
"Saddam Hussein today is in jail,
which is exactly where he belongs,"
Cheney said.
Democratic vice presidential candi-
date John Edwards issued a statement
saying: "Dick Cheney's scare tactics
crossed the line today, showing once
again that he and George Bush will
do anything and say anything to save
their jobs. Protecting America from
vicious terrorists is not a Democratic or
Republican issue and Dick Cheney and
George Bush should know that."
"John Kerry and I will keep America
safe, and we will not divide the Ameri-
can people to do it," Edwards added.
Bush yesterday accused Kerry of
changing positions on the Iraq war by

adopting the language of one-time pres-
idential candidate Howard Dean when
Kerry called the conflict "the wrong
war in the wrong place at the wrong
time."
Kerry "woke up yesterday morning
with yet another new position, and this
one's not even his own; it is that of his
one-time rival, Howard Dean," Bush
told thousands of supporters yesterday
at a rally in Lee's Summit, Mo., a sub-
urb of Kansas City.
Bush said Kerry "even used the same
words Howard Dean did back when he
supposedly disagreed with him. ... Sen-
ator Kerry flip-flops. We were right to
make America safer by removing Sad-
dam Hussein from power."
"George Bush definitely wants to
avoid having the discussion focus on
how he has handled the war in Iraq,"
said Kerry campaign spokesman Phil
Singer. "This is an example of a presi-
dent who has led the country down
the wrong road in Iraq and has pur-
sued a policy that has landed us in a
quagmire, costing us $200 billion and
counting."

BUSING

right around all these sororities and
fraternities. People will probably hop
on this to go out and party," Arnold
said.
While riding on the bus, LSA senior
Stephen Abebreseh said that he also
believes the route will gain popularity
as more people learn about it. He sees
the Oxford Shuttle as a boon for students

living in the Oxford Residence Hall.
"Returning residents are very grateful,
and this should make new residents feel
less alienated," Abebreseh said, "Peo-
ple don't enjoy being put at Oxford ...
because it's so secluded."
However, not all changes have
expanded bus service. To accommo-
date extra routes and buses, the last
bus to North Campus on weekends is
now earlier. On Friday, the last bus
leaves at 2 a.m. and on Saturday at
2:30 a.m. Last year, the final bus was

3 a.m. both nights.
These changes are not every-year
occurrences, said Parking and Trans-
portation Director Dave Miller.
"Past year changes have been minor
tweaking. This is a huge impact as we
are adding 9000 additional service
hours per year," Miller said.
The nearly 10-percent increase in
service hours will cost the University
an additional $350,000 in this fiscal
year, Miller said.

HOUSING
Continued from page 1
dents led by Heather Albee- Scott.
Citing the lapse of Family Hous-
ing as the major problem, Albee-
Scott and others have made a case
against the relocation of undergradu-
ates based on rent disparities as well
as the destruction of an international
and family-oriented community.
Much of the anger of Northwood
IV and V residents stems from the
fact that those families which moved
from Northwood I, II, and III to make
room for undergraduates will con-
tinue to pay the rent they did in their
previous apartment while living in a
larger one.
Protesters also argued that Fam-

ily Housing is a support system for
students with families and breaking
apart this close-knit community cre-
ates hardships for single mothers and
particularly international students,
who also live in the housing units.
Although the relocation has already
taken place, Albee-Scott said residents
of Family Housing hope to focus their
energy on another goal: encouraging
the University to consider building
another residence hall.
Albee-Scott said she hopes to enlist
the help of parents of undergraduates
students who were unhappy with the
move to Family Housing.
The University has frequently
tossed around the idea of building
a new hall on north campus, but no
plans have been finalized.

Susana Adame, an LSA fifth year
senior, who has been living in North-
wood V with her children, said it is too
early to tell. Adame added that the
relocation continues to cause concerns
about a slow elimination of Family
Housing, which protesters have been
pointing out since the relocation was
first announced.
Similarly, Falana English, a Nurs-
ing senior who lives with her three
children in Northwood V, said that
she has heard of no problems thus far
but still feels that University Hous-
ing has overstepped its boundaries
through this move. "If they've taken
away (Northwood I, II, and III), who's
to say they won't do something else?
They've stepped into our safe haven,"
English said.

BALLOTS

to change their driver's license
addresses in order to register in
Ann Arbor "It's very, very easy
to change that, and the Secretary
of State sends everybody who

changes their address a sticker to
change their license address," he
said, referring to a driver's license
address.
Ann Arbor, like the rest of Washt-
enaw County and nearly all of
Michigan, uses optical-scan voting
machines in its polling stations.
Washtenaw County Director

of Elections Melanie Weidmayer
said the county has no plans to
use touch-screen electronic voting
machines, which have raised con-
cerns in other states.
Opponents of touch-screen
machines say they are easily tam-
pered with and prone to losing
data.
