tor of purchasing for the University and a member of
the DRB, said Coke is "not in a position to agree to
the investigation in Colombia or India." Although the
DRB's original requirement was that Coke agree to
the audits by the September deadline, Poszywak still
didn't recommend that the contract be cut because of
what he sees as "good faith actions" from Coke - a
standard that Slottow had earlier said he would accept,
to the dismay of anti-Coke student groups.
Slottow and Peggy Norgren, associate vice president
for finance, sent a letter to Coke yesterday informing
the company of their decision.
"They've taken a number of steps to move the inves-
tigations forward. We'll want to keep watching to
make sure they keep moving forward with the investi-
gation process," Norgren said.
However, before the University announced its deci-
the michigan daily
sion yesterday, the Coke-Campaign Coalition, a group
of students that is agitating for the University to cut its
contracts with Coke, had delivered letters of its own.
The coalition delivered letters to University admin-
istrators earlier yesterday saying that if they don't cut
the contract with the soft-drink giant, the coalition
will escalate its anti-Coke campaign.
Coke-Campaign Coalition members Nafisah Ula,
Lindsey Rogers and Ben Grimshaw delivered letters
to the secretaries of Slottow, Norgren and Univer-
sity President Mary Sue Coleman, which said that
Coke's letter was an unacceptable response to the
deadline and therefore the contract should be cut.
"Coca-Cola's letter was full of half-truths and
lies," Grimshaw said. "Coca-Cola is treating this as
a PR issue, rather than a labor issue."
Norgren said the students' letter ignores some
significant factors that need to be taken into account
before making the decision.
"I think what the students are failing to recognize is
that the committee has made substantial progress with
the Colombia assessment plans in collaboration with
Coke, and the Sept. 30 letter reiterated their commit-
ment to working toward this end," Norgren said.
Kerry Kerr, a spokesman for Coke, said the com-
pany was very thankful to the University for its
"We want to continue to work with the University
on the issues raised by the Dispute Review Board,"
Kerr said. "We are engaged in a significant effort
involved with a number of colleges and Universities,
including the University of Michigan, and that's to
gather more information and also review potential
approaches to resolve these issues."
Kerr said she was disappointed with the actions
taken by the coalition.
"We do feel that's unfortunate, because we are
committed to working with the school toward mak-
ing progress," she said of the students' response to

this size were primary concerns for
"Making something like this hap-
pen is probably one of the most diffi-
cult things a student organization can
do," MSA President Jesse Levine said.
According to Susan Pile, director of
University Arts and Programs, funding
the concert was the greatest concern.
"It costs a lot of money to bring an
entertainer of this nature to campus.
We worked with the students closely
to develop a budget. But they had the
funds and were willing to make it
happen, so we were there to support
them," Pile said.
MSA will invest $50,000 in the
concert, but hopes to regain most of
that through ticket sales, Levine said.
The remainder of costs will be split
between Hillel and UAC.

their credits, Dickerman said.
However, arranging to study abroad
through another university is difficult and
deters many students from going to Israel,
Kuhn said. Students who study abroad
through other universities do.not receive
financial aid, and the grades they earn in
these programs do not count toward their
"It's a significant academic experience
that the University is not giving (students)
credit for," she said.
Kuhn estimated that between 25 and 30
University students study abroad in Israel
every year despite the difficulties.
Many universities have lifted their
suspensions on travel to Israel this year
because officials said they feel the security
situation has improved. Among Big Ten
universities, the University of Wisconsin,
Indiana University and Ohio State Uni-
versity have approved programs or spe-
cial processes by which students can get
approval to study in Israel.
The University of Texas at Austin
reviewed its suspension of study-abroad
programs to Israel in February 2005 at the
request of students and faculty. Although
it did not lift the suspension, UT-Aus-
tin developed a process through which
students could appeal individually to be
allowed to study in Israel, said John Sun-
nygard, director of the Center for Global
Educational Opportunities in Austin.
Sunnygard said UT-Austin decided to
allow students to go to the country because
of Israel's recent disengagement from the
Gaza Strip and the death of Yasir Arafat
Crisler Arena, which holds 13,751
people, was also originally consid-
ered as a possible venue but ultimately
Hill Auditorium, which has a seating
capacity of 3,700, was chosen for cost
and logistical reasons.
"There is something to be said of
the atmosphere of a small, sold-out
venue as opposed to a half-filled arena
not designed for the event," said Mary
Beth Roeder, president of Big Ticket
Student tickets for the concert
will go on sale at noon today at the
Michigan Union Ticket Office in the
basement of the Union. Tickets will
cost 25 dollars for balcony seats
and 30 dollars for floor and mezza-
nine seats. Students may purchase
up to four tickets and must present a
valid Mcard. Remaining tickets will
be available to the general public at
a slightly higher price on Oct. 25
- events that the school believes have
improved the security of the area. The
school was also concerned that the suspen-
sion made it financially difficult for stu-
dents to go abroad and that some students
might not receive adequate information
about safety if they had to find their own
study-abroad programs, he added.
In order to appeal the suspension for
Israel or any other country where there
are significant security concerns, students
are required to provide academic justifi-
cation for the trip, sign a waiver, read the
State Department warning and a security
briefing from a private security firm and
outline the steps they will take to stay safe
while abroad, Sunnygard said.
To assess the security situation, Sunny-
gard traveled to Israel in March 2005.
"I was very impressed with what the
Israeli universities do," he said. "The uni-
versities have very, very, very sophisticated
security personnel.... And every student
is surrounded by people who are really
clued in to what is going on around them."
Friedman said although there were
incidents of violence when he traveled to
Israel, he still felt safe while he was there.
"(Fears of attack) are irrational fears,"
he said. "The odds of you being involved
in an attack are so small."
The situation in Israel seemed much
more dangerous to people at home in the
United States than to the students on his
trip, he added.
AMI will continue to pursue this issue
and will seek the help of the Detroit Jew-
ish community, Kuhn said. AMI will also
seek to educate students about non-Uni-
versity-sponsored study-abroad programs
to Israel, she added.

money for the victims, said SAPA
founder and external relations co-
chair Madhuri Singh.
The vigil drew members of more
than a dozen South Asian and
religious student groups, but the
participants also included many
non-South Asians, some of whom
were passersby offered candles and
the chance to participate.
"Right now it's a South Asian
issue, but we'd like to expand
awareness and get a lot of people
involved," Javaid said. "A tragic
event brings people together no mat-
ter what their background is."
Many students said their families
in South Asia had heard horrific sto-
ries about the devastation left by the
earthquake. "My dad told me some
of the stories he had heard from his
friend, who works with a relief orga-
nization," LSA senior Taha Qazi
said during the vigil. "(The friend)

of IASA secretary Juhi Aggarwal,

Javaid, who decided to do some-
thing and met to discuss it shortly
after hearing about the earthquake
on Saturday. They hoped for an
event to bring all the South-Asian
student groups together.
"We can work together because
politics aren't dividing us," said
Singh, a Business senior. "These
disasters aren't man-made - they

to collect donations and sell T-shirts

Travel delays might interrupt you
today. Similarly, everything having to do
with publishing, the media and higher
education receives a jolt or surprise in
(April 20 to May 20)
Expect surprises with shared property
or money you expect from someone.
This could be good news; it could be bad
news. You might also find or lose money
today. Be careful!
(May 21 to June 20)
People are difficult to deal with today.
However, this applies to you as well.
Therefore, be patient with loved ones.
(June 21 to July 22)

demanding of co-workers. It's easy to
eel that others are there to serve you
now. (They're not.)
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
You want to flirt today. (It's nothing
armful. You just feel like playing and
oofing around a bit.) It's good day to
enjoy playful activities with children.
Expect surprises in sports.
Everything is a bit bizarre.

Surprise purchases could please you
today. (Keep your receipts, just to be
safe.) Matters connected with money
and possessions are out of your control
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Existing relationships are difficult to
deal with today. In part, you might be
impatient with someone. You want dif-
ferent results! The truth is, you have to
deal with what you have. Demonstrate
grace under pressure.
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
At a deep level within you, you feel
confused. We all feel confused at times.
Just cope as best you can. You are a
strong, practical, sensible sign capable
of withstanding great adversity.

Friends and groups surprise you today.
You might feel let down. You also feel
impulsive and impatient. However, sur-
prising events will take a new turn now.
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
You feel impatient with authority fig-
ures today. On the other hand, someone
with influence could bend the rules in
your favor. Be open for whatever oppor-
tunitv is to come your way.
