LEO to hold informational picket
Lecturers' union reacts
after U' misses noncontractual
deadline on evaluation criteria
By EkJyot Saini

Lecturers will stage an informational pick-
et later this month in response to the Univer-
sity's failure to comply with a deadline the
lecturers' union requested, said Bonnie Hal-
loran, president of the Lecturers' Employee
Organization. The Ann Arbor Campus Coun-
cil of LEO met Friday and confirmed that
they would take action on Feb. 22 by passing
out informational fliers to students and pass-
ersby outside of University buildings. Most
details of the picket have yet to be decided,
She added that she hopes this will further
press the University to move forward on the
implementation of last year's contract.
The University and LEO are continuing their
squabble over last year's contract and the Uni-
versity's alleged failure to comply with certain
provisions of the contract regarding performance
evaluation of lecturers.
LEO requested that by Feb. 1, the University
provide it with the criteria it uses when evalu-
ating lecturers and considering them for hiring
and promotional purposes. LEO also requested
a list of lecturers that need to be reviewed for
performance evaluations this year. The Univer-
sity, however, did not comply with the requested.
deadline because it was a not an agreed-upon
University spokeswoman Julie Peterson said
the development of evaluation criteria is a
long process and requires work to be done
on a department-by-department basis within
each of the colleges at the University. Some
departments previously had criteria in place,
while others are in the process of creating it.
"It's an incredible amount of work and it
is taking longer than we expected," she said.
"We are doing the best we can."
She said that individuals from these depart-
ments were working closely with each college
and members from the Academic Human
Resources Department to create the criteria.
Some of the colleges, such as Nursing, the
College of Engineering and the Residential
College, within the University have provided
LEO with performance criteria while others,
such as LSA, have provided vague informa-
tion, Halloran said.
"There was been some movement on the
part of the University, but they are baby
steps," Halloran said.
A contract settlement was not reached by LEO
and the University until last June, when negotia-
tions had failed and one day walkout was staged
SAE may face

After hosting a party in violation of
Greek policies, the Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon fraternity is reportedly in danger of
being kicked out of the Intrafraternity
Council. The charges are still under
investigation, but a hearing will be held
to determine if SAE will be allowed
to remain in IFC, said a source that
wished to remain anonymous.
SAE was not permitted to have the
party because it is currently on social pro-
bation because of an attempted break-in
to another fraternity house by SAE mem-
bers last year. SAE may also have been in
violation of the IFC's newly implemented
party policies which seek to curb illegal
behavior at Greek parties.
In response to breaking the guidelines
of its probation, SAE's national chapter
has kicked out all of the junior and senior
brothers in the fraternity, the source said.
IFC officials said they would not com-
ment on an on-going investigation. The
Greek Activities Review Panel - the
judicial board that presides over the Greek
system - will conduct the hearings.
The new party policies mandate that
any event taking place on chapter prop-
erty where more than 25 women are pres-
ent and where alcohol is allowed must be
registered by the IFC. The new policies
also require that a member of the Social
Responsibility Committee must be pres-
ent at the door, and the fraternity must
supply a certain number of sober party
monitors. The policy changes went into
effect Jan. 1 for all fraternities.
SAE's alleged violation of IFC's new
rules for parties is not the first time the
house has run afoul of authorities.
Last spring, a member of SAE faced
rape charges that were dropped when
his accuser admitted the sex was con-
sensual. However, the Ann Arbor Police
Department continued to investigate SAE
because of reports that the house served
alcohol to minors at the party where the

concluded that two members of ATO also
contributed to the destruction of DKE
property. IFC ruled that SAE must pay
half of the damages to the DKE house,
hold a charitable event and issue a formal
apology to DKE.

to win - like the New England Patriots.
The Patriots won their third Super Bowl in
four years with a dominant second half last night,
wearing down the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21.
It wasn't overpowering, and at times it was
downright ugly. But it was more than enough to
match the Dallas Cowboys' run of the 1990s and
certify the Patriots of Bill Belichick and Tom
Brady as the NFL's latest dynasty.
"To me this trophy belongs to these players,"
Belichick said. "They met all comers this year,
a very challenging year. We're thrilled to win.

The difference once again was an Adam Vina-

go. New England won its other two Super Bowls
by the margin of Vinatieri's last-second kicks.
This time, the Patriots sealed it with a stop.
Philadelphia (15-4) got the ball back at its 4

time and far too much territory to cover against
such a formidable foe.
Harrison got his second interception with 9
