ing Technology Center, in a written
statement.
Economics Prof. George Fulton
said he is optimistic about the out-
look of the hybrid vehicle market.
"(Michigan is) the center of auto-
motive design and manufacturing,"
he said. "I think they are already
making adjustments."
Fulton emphasized that it is impor-
tant to plan for the long term, and the
market itself will make adjustments.
"If you save a few jobs in the near
term, it's not a good long-term strat-

egy," Fulton said. "You have a short-
term disequilibrium, and then you
have adjustments to that."
The study, titled "Fuel-Saving
Technologies and Facility Conver-
sion: Costs, Benefits, and Incen-
tives," was conducted by OSAT,
which is part of the University's
Transportation Research Center.
The Michigan Manufacturing Tech-
nology Center, though not affiliated
with the University, collaborated on
the study with OSAT.
The National Commission on

TSUNAMI
Continued from page 1
Each $2,000 home will take 10 days
to build and will include some modern
amenities such as septic facilities and
running water, Kymal said.
Kymal said a date for the trip has not
been set because the center is await-
ing clearance on building plans from
the government, but it expects to know
more by the end of March. He said the
major rebuilding effort will most likely
continue into next year.
Kymal also said he wants to open
this opportunity to University students
who are not affiliated with the Amma
Center. Rackham senior Erin Schwartz
and Barron are helping Kymal reach his
goal of gathering 50 student participants
from the University by recruiting from
Asian and community-service organi-
zations on campus.
Schwartz said that students are a great
resource to the project and in turn will
benefit from a unique experience.
"There are lots of capable people in
the University that care about rebuild-
ing a life for an entire family, that are
also devotees of Amma and that just
have this desire in their heart to help the
people of tsunami-affected areas ... The
people that go will have a tremendous
experience beyond building a house,"
Schwartz said.
Kymal said the six-week stay is not
mandatory and that anyone willing to
pledge his time is invited.
The rebuilding effort will focus on
two devastated villages Nagaptinam
and Allapad in India, Kymal said.
The village of Nagaptinam is about
five hours away from the Amrita Uni-
versity, said Kymal. He added that stu-
dents of Amrita helped in Nagaptinam
by distributing food and medical care
and erecting temporary shelters.
University students will have the
opportunity to work alongside Indian
students as well as Japanese students
who have been helping to build houses
in India since the earthquake in Gujarat,
Kymal said.
"I'm very excited to meet other stu-
dents that are partaking this, because we
are all so passionate about this cause,"
Barron said.

Kymal said they will also be helping
to reconstruct the village of Allapad
because of its drastic socioeconomic
upheaval following the tsunami - many
of the people went from lower-middle
class backgrounds to absolutely nothing
in less than an hour.
"Even many of the fishermen had
college educations ... It is easy to empa-
thize with (the people of Allapad),
because many of them are coming from
the same background (as University stu-
dents)," Kymal said.
In both communities, the Indian
government has provided temporary
housing in the forms of tents and sheds
where people live in a communal fash-
ion, Kymal said. The government has
also distributed food and medical sup-
plies.
"I think they've done a superb job,"
he said "In the U.S., we were worried
about people starving, having nowhere
to live and an outbreak of diseases. The
Indian government has done an excel-
lent job for the vastness of what has hap-
pened. When you go into these places,
it's like the twilight zone. Right now
everything is rubble, and bulldozers are
trying to get rid of it."
Kymal said that even with this govern-
ment aid, it will be difficult for the area
to recover without any type of social
security or unemployment wages.
To fill this void, Kymal said, the cen-
ter also wants to raise money for nets
and boats so that the citizens of these
devastated areas can rebuild their live-
lihoods. One boat is about $2,000 dol-
lars and can be shared by five families,
while a series of nets for different sizes
of fishes would be $1,000, Kymal said.
To decide how the center's funds
should be allocated between these
pressing needs and the houses, Kymal
will return to India in three to four
months.
"In my own opinion, what we are
doing is a small gesture in the big
picture," he said. "But it is all we can
do. In my estimation, after I returned
I realized that there is so much that
needs to be done. Here at Michigan,
we are doing what we can to help these
two villages. I think we can directly
impact thousands of people and make
a difference in their lives."

STATE
Continued from page 1
state funding cannot support the growing
educational system.
"We have wrung costs out of the system
through efficiencies, cutbacks and layoffs.
Meanwhile, our level of activity has gone
up considerably. This model, if continued,
will hurt the quality of our work," she said.
Coleman said the University will take
an active role in opposing the higher-
education budget cuts. "I have committed
to our students, to our alumni and to the
state that quality is our key priority. We
cannot compromise our academic excel-
lence," she said.
Still, Coleman said she supports
Granholm's proposal, introduced in her

State of the State address, to issue $2 bil-
lion in state bonds to research initiatives
in universities, businesses and nonprofit
organizations. Coleman said the future of
Michigan's economy lies in the research
innovations of today's youth.
"Governor Granholm's plan for
research investment gives us a tremendous
opportunity to strengthen the partnership
between state government, industry and
research universities so we can out-inno-
vate the competition," she said.
Granholm's new budget plan also boosts
appropriations to the School Aid Fund,
a proposal that would give $175 per stu-
dent to K-8 schools and $225 per student
in each 9-12 school across the state. Bird
said this funding comes from an increase
of revenue from tax receipts.
