* LIBRARY
Continued from page 1A
serve the Carnegie Library - an
architectural "treasure," Coleman
had said - and try to preserve parts
of Frieze.
Two weeks ago, at a meeting with
members of the community, admin-
istrators said they were very con-
cerned with preserving at least some
of the Frieze Building.
They made similar comments
when they announced the plan to the
regents last semester.
"The University is committed to
preserving the historic nature of the
facility," said E. Royster Harper,
vice president for student affairs, to
nearly 100 community members at
that meeting.
The demolition of the Frieze
Building and Carnegie Library
would upset community members
like Carol Smith, an Ann Arbor
resident, University alum and for-
mer student of the Ann Arbor High
School, which was housed in the
Frieze Building before the Univer-
sity purchased it in 1957.
Although she does not oppose
building a new residence hall, Smith
said she believes the current build-
ings, in addition to their historical
significance, complement their sur-
roundings well and accommodate
pedestrians.
"My feeling is that Huron Street,
State Street would look more histor-
ic, more natural, if you were able to
save the fagades of both," Smith said
of the Carnegie and Frieze Build-
ings.
"We have a piece of architecture
here that is a recognized style that
can teach a little bit of history, a
little bit of architecture and a little
bit of urban planning just by being
there."
"My main concern is the
streetscape. It's unlike any Uni-
* versity building because it does sit
where it does," Smith added, refer-
ring to the site's distinct position
as a northern "gateway" to central
campus. Smith voiced her concerns
at yesterday's regents meeting.
But Hank Baier, associate vice
president for facilities and opera-
tions, said preserving the Frieze
Building was an "insurmountable"
task.
The University would have to work
within the confines on the building's
floor plan - with narrow hallways
and high ceiling heights - that are

antiquated by today's standards,
Baier said.
LSA Dean Terry McDonald also
noted that the Frieze Building's lay-
out represents a different time in the
history of education that stressed
seclusion and confinement. For the
next century, educators are looking
toward openness and innovation, he
said.
As an example of this "open" feel-
ing, McDonald said administrators
are exploring a design like the one
near the Posting Wall in Haven Hall
- a glass fagade looking out near
the Diag - designed by the same
architectural firm developing North
Quad.
University Regent Rebecca
McGowan (D-Ann Arbor) showed
apprehension about the plan to
eliminate the centenarian building
at yesterday's meeting, even as other
regents and students were swap-
ping horror stories about the Frieze
Building's poor condition.
"I had great regard for what was
said that night," McGowan said of
the comments by community mem-
bers in dissent of the proposed demo-
lition. "The people of the 4th Ward
have concerns about their quality of
life, and they have a right to have
those concerns."
"Historic preservationists have a
great responsibility to advocate for
retaining and renewing these build-
ings here in town. They're of consid-
erable significance," she added.
But the plan comes with a string
of supporters, including the Michi-
gan Student Assembly, which voted
unanimously in favor of the plan.
MSA contends that the new resi-
dence hall with help offset the
demand for off-campus housing and
relieve upperclass students of the
burden of seeking it.
LSA junior Rese Fox, MSA's
external relations committee chair,
said without the support of the Ann
Arbor Tenants Union - a Univer-
sity resource center created to aid
students with off-campus housing
issues - students need as many
housing options as possible.
The State Street Association,
the organization of businesses for
downtown Ann Arbor, also wel-
comed the changes, promising to
dole out goodie bags to North Quad
residents each year once the resi-
dence hall opens.
The University's Residence Hall
Association also supports the plan
to build North Quad.

IRAQ
Continued from page 1A
ing 47 sailors.
Iraqi security forces and civilians
have borne the brunt of violence in
Iraq, with bombings often killing
scores of people at a time. More than
180 people were killed on March
2, 2004, during a string of suicide
attacks at Shiite shrines in Karbala
and Baghdad.
Violence has only increased
ahead of Sunday's election, which
will create a 275 - member Nation-
al Assembly and regional legisla-
tures. Sunni Muslim extremists have
threatened to sabotage the election,
and many Sunni clerics have called
for a boycott because of the presence
of U.S. and other foreign troops.
The group calling itself al-Qaida
in Iraq warned people to stay away
from the polls, threatening attacks.
"Oh people, be careful. Be careful
not to be near the centers of infidel-
ity and vice, the polling centers ...
Don't blame us but blame yourselves
if harmed," a Web statement issued
in the group's name said.
In addition to yesterday's crash
deaths, four Marines were killed in
fighting in Iraq's Anbar province,
the military said.
A reporter embedded with those
troops, Jim Dolan of WABC in New
York City, said the deaths came
when insurgents ambushed a Marine
convoy leaving the town of Haditha,
northwest of Baghdad, hitting a
vehicle with a rocket-propelled gre-
nade.
Also yesterday, insurgents
attacked a U.S. Army patrol near the
northern town of Duluiyah, killing
one soldier and wounding two oth-
ers, and in the Baghdad area a road-
side bomb killed another soldier and
wounded two others, the U.S. com-
mand said.

The day's deaths brought to at
least 1,409 the number of members
of the U.S. military who have died
in Iraq, according to an Associated
Press count.
A string of political violence
continued. Several schools slated
to be used as polling stations were
bombed overnight.
A suicide bomber detonated a fuel
tanker at the offices of the Kurdistan
Democratic Party in the town of Sin-
jar, southwest of Mosul, killing five
and injuring at least 20 people, KDP
officials said.
Earlier in the day, gunmen opened
fire with machine guns on the local
headquarters of the Patriotic Union
of Kurdistan and the Communist
Party in the city of Baqouba, north
of Baghdad, killing a traffic police-
man.
The KDP and PUK are the two
largest Kurdish groups in Iraq and
have formed a coalition along with
other Kurdish groups to run in the
election.
Insurgents also set off three car
bombs in rapid succession in the
town of Riyadh, north of Baghdad,
killing at least five people - includ-
ing three policemen.
Four American soldiers were
injured in a car bombing yesterday
in Saddam's hometown of Tikrit, the
U.S. command said.
Another car bomb targeted a mul-
tinational forces convoy on the road
to Baghdad's international airport,
injuring four soldiers, the command
said.
The attack temporarily closed the
airport road, one of the country's
most dangerous.
Another car bombing later hit the
same airport road, and an eighth car
bomb detonated prematurely in the
town of Mashahda, 30 miles north
of Baghdad, killing the two men in
the car.

PROF
Continued from page 1A
Faeth was slated to give his lecture
as the Arthur B. Modine Distinguished
University Professor of Aerospace
Engineering on Feb. 8th of this year.
The board of regents created distin-
guished professorships in 1947 to rec-
ognize faculty for excellent teaching
skills, reputation and achievement in
their fields of scholarly interest.
Faeth named his professorship
in honor of Modine, who received

a Bachelor of Science in Engineer-
ing from the University in 1908 and
invented the automotive radiator.
Faeth taught several aerospace
engineering classes, including Intro-
duction to Gas Dynamics, Combus-
tion Processes and a seminar.
"He always took time out to
answer questions," Kevin Peterman,
an Engineering senior, said. "He
was just a nice guy at heart. He was
a friend as well as a teacher."
A date for Faeth's memorial ser-
vices has not been selected yet.

NORTH QUAD
Continued from page 1A
for the new residence hall was an
interactive video wall. One wall in
the complex would essentially be
a video screen and would display
a live-feed from another location
- anywhere from North Campus to
Nigeria - that students walking by
could interact with said School of
Information Dean John King.
He added that the technology,
which has been developed in the
early stages, would help foster an
interactive and global learning
experience.
The complex may also include
music practice rooms, places for infor-
mal performances; galleries to dis-
play artwork, recreation rooms and,
as requested by many students, "ade-
quate laundry facilities," Henry said.
University Housing has a lot of "big

ideas," she said, but limited space.
The cost of the project will be
split between University Housing,
the Provost's Office, LSA and Uni-
versity investment proceeds.
The residential facilities will
cost $58 million, while academic
and support space will cost $74
million.
Though the building will be a
major investment, on-campus hous-
ing rates should not rise at a dispro-
portionate rate, said Henry.
Housing should increase by the
same roughly 5-percent increments
it has in the past, she said. Instead,
the new complex will be partly
funded by Housing through a debt
service. University Housing - a
self-sustaining operation that does
not receive state or tuition funding
- will use the revenues it is expect-
ed to acquire from residence hall
room rates to fund the project.
