The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, April 12, 2005 - 7
Continued from page 1.
But the announcement that Page
will speak at the Engineering cer-
emony quelled Chandler's concerns
that his graduation would not be
"I'm quite excited that he's com-
ing," he said. "I called my dad today
and said, 'This is awesome, Larry
Page is coming.' "
LSA senior Dion Beatty said that
he will not attend the University-wide
commencement - mostly because
he's disappointed with the choice of
Brown - but said that if Page were
the one speaking in front of the whole
University, he would more seriously
"I think the College of Engineering
typically gets better speakers every
year," Beatty said.
Director defended the University's
choice of Brown.
"I think John Seely Brown has also
changed the world," he said, citing
Brown's involvement as chief of the
research lab that developed the Win-
dows operating system.
As Engineering dean, Director makes
the final decision of who to invite to be
commencement speaker. First, students
and faculty of the College of Engineer-
ing make recommendations.
Then a student committee screens
them and passes on a few of the best
to Director, who chooses one.
Historically, the College of Engi-
neering has often looked to alumni
In 1998, it showcased NASA chief
and University alum Daniel Goldin,
and in 2003 it chose Jerry Levin, Uni-
versity alum and CEO of American
Household Inc. Last year, University
alum and co-founder of Sun Micro-
systems William Joy spoke.
Engineering senior Harsh Modi
said Engineering students look up to
Page as a University alum and techno-
"A lot of people are very impressed
with what Google is doing, especially
among college students," Modi said.
That respect prompted Engineering
senior Sarah Barr to say that, although
she will not graduate until December,
she is considering going to the speech
just to see Page.
"I know that he holds (the Universi-
ty in high regard), and the students are
excited to hear him," Director said.
The College of Engineering's grad-
uation ceremonies will begin at 3 p.m.
on April 30 in Crisler Arena.

down homophobia within the Greek
community." "People think that gay
people must be the voice for the gay
community, but when it comes from
a heterosexual member, it means a
lot more," she added.
Mary Stewart, an LSA sophomore
and member of Zeta Sigma Chi,
said there are LGBT members in
her sorority. "We are very involved
in making sure we support them by
being their 'allies,' " Stewart said.
Currently, the Greek commu-
nity has no programs specifically
geared toward resolving the issue.
In the winter of 1994, the Panhel-
lenic Association and Interfrater-
nity Council issued a "Statement
for Human Dignity," which stated
that "We encourage programming
to increase the awareness of and
combat activities detracting from
Human Dignity, especially those
that are demeaning, or degrading to
women and men."
The Strategic Plan 2010 by the
University of Michigan Greek Com-
munity, however, has no mention of
the issue of homophobia.
Panhel spokeswoman Lindsay
Fediuk said that on the issue of
homophobia, "no specific pro-
gramming is planned as of yet to
address this specific issue however,
we realize that this issue is impor-
"The program was a great first
step in educating the Greek com-
munity on the issue they may or
may not think about on a daily
basis," IFC spokesman Jon Kras-
Many fraternities and sororities at
the national level have made state-
ments against discrimination on the
basis of sexual orientation.
In response, LSA senior and mem-
ber of Zeta Sigma Chi Kelly Sap-
pington said, "You can write down
any rule, but unless people don't
embrace it, it means nothing."
Shariadtamadar said the event was
a "great success," as both Greeks
and non-Greeks interacted in the
dialogue. IFC and Panhel were pres-
ent as well, and a member of the
Delta Delta Delta sorority took down
information from Zeta Sigma Chi to
promote educational programs in
her own organization.

to lose their chapter."
The national fraternity, which ulti-
mately decides whether to reinstate
the chapter, said it plans to redevel-
op the chapter and return to campus
within a few years.
IFC spokesman Jon Krasnov said
although it is regrettable that the
national fraternity felt it necessary to
shut down ATO, the IFC cannot and
will not recognize any chapter that
has had its charter revoked.
He added that when a decision is
made, the IFC would work with the
national fraternity to determine IFC
"The IFC fully supports any chap-
ter that wishes to re-charter at the
University as long as we believe they
will uphold the ideals and standards
becoming of a Greek organization,"
In an email to ATO members, fra-
ternity president Joel Stone advised
the brotherhood to refrain from giv-
ing comments on the situation to any
print media outlet.
According to the email, any brother
who violates this warning risks losing
his alumni status with the national
Continued from page 5
To conduct the study, the Foundation
turned in 1954 to Salk's former colleague
and mentor from his days at the Univer-
sity, Thomas Francis.
"The Foundation needed a first-rate
epidemiologist who had experience doing
these types of trials," Markel said. "In
the roster of epidemiologists at the time,
Francis was in the top five. He was very
well regarded with a sterling reputation
and had experience. He also had the right
temperament - he didn't get ruffled."
In organizing and running such a high-
profile and highly scrutinized study, Fran-
cis couldn't afford to get ruffled.
"Francis was on a tightrope in the
big top. Everyone was watching him,"
And Francis's act included juggling the
1.8 million children, hundreds of schools
and thousands of volunteers involved in
the study. At the time, the study was the
largest of its kind in history, Markel said.
Vaccine administration sites were set
up in schools across the country, and chil-
dren, volunteered for the study by their
parents, filed in to be injected with either
the Salk vaccine or a placebo.
Francis insisted that a large number of
children receive a placebo to ensure the
validity of the trial; in the end, more than
1.1 million did. Francis also stipulated
that the trial must be double-blind, that
is, both the doctors and nurses giving the
injection and the child receiving it have
no idea as to whether it is the vaccine or
a placebo. Barbara Kolecamp was one of
those children who participate in the trial
- the Polio Pioneers - and she remem-
bers with pride her role in the eradication
"It was a big deal among us (at school).
I was a Polio Pioneer and my older sis-
ter was not - it was something I had on
her," Kolecamp said while wearing the
"Polio Pioneer" pin that she received as
a young needle-pricked girl, proof of her
contribution to science.
The study was a success, "Francis
came through beautifully." Markel said.
But more importantly, it had shown con-
cretely that Salk's vaccine was indeed
"safe, effective and potent;'as announced
to the restless Rackham audience.
Today, a small plaque in the car-
peted hall outside Rackham honors the
announcement, and polio is little more
than a bad memory for most Americans
- if that.
But according to the World Health
Organization, polio is still a threat in a
number of third-world countries; Nigeria
reported over 700 cases last year. Fifty
years after the first polio vaccine, Markel
said there is no excuse for a single person
to contract polio.
"It's beyond tragic, it's a terrible waste;'
he said. "It takes money and it takes effort
and we have these things."
