the museum is scheduled to meet its goal by June 1.
Stenn, who donated $1 million to the project, said he
was honored to contribute to the museum because of his
enormous affection for art and the University. Stenn's
name will be on the Family Project Gallery, which will
showcase the works of contemporary artists. Stenn said
he is proud that he will be connected to a project that has
the potential to inspire upcoming artists.
Carol McNamara, Senior Curator of Western art, said
she expects the expansion of the existing galleries to
inspire up-and-coming artists.
The updated Western art exhibit will be "a completely
new experience for young art lovers," McNamara said.
The new wing's lower level will be home to the Marvin
and Phyllis Dolinko Curatorial Research Center, which
will include a research library for the curatorial and edu-
cation staff of the museum. It will also house an arts
periodical section for staff, researchers and students.
Construction is scheduled to begin as soon as the
funds are raised. The renovated museum will open in
the fall of 2008.

Steve Ford shared personal sto-
ries and pictures of his family dur-
ing their two and half years in the
White House. Ford spoke about
his father's inauguration and the
sudden resignation of President
Nixon. He fondly remembered his
family's patience with the ousted
president's family, whose belong-
ings remained in the White House
after they had left.
"We went back to our small
three-room house in Alexandria
that night," Ford said. "Mom was
standing over the hot stove and
remarked, 'Gerry, something is
wrong here. You're president and
I'm still cooking'"
Ford, 18, was set to go to Duke
University a few weeks after his
father's inauguration, but could
not imagine living in the dor-
mitories with 10 secret service

At the conference, Schwartz said
he plans to address how adminis-
trative and counseling bodies can
work together to ensure the proper
steps are taken to provide students
with good mental health care and
"The fact that there may be a death
on campus, or even two or three in a
brief period of time, doesn't mean the
University is doing something wrong
or that the counseling services are
somehow faulty," Schwartz said. "It is
impossible to create a system to com-

"'I'm not ready to go to college,' I
told my dad,"Ford said. "I've always
had a dream of going out West and
being a cowboy."
Instead of Duke, he took his secret
service agents out West and learned
how to rope a steer and ranch.
"I wanted to escape the limelight,"
he said. "I did a few interviews then,
but I would just come back for a few
months at a time. I attended the state
dinners and met all the important

ries of his father the media never
One of those occurred during
his days as a football player at the
University, and was told to him by a
friend of his father's.

time. Their team refused to take the

Schwartz added that when the
campus community faces a series
of traumatic events, students need
to be sure they not only seek the
help they need, but support and
care for others as well.
Because of the recent suicides of
two University students, Glick said
she expects students and faculty
to express interest in suicide-risk
assessment and prevention at the
conference. However, suicide is
not the main focus, she said.
Greden said because the major-
ity of people who engage in suicidal
thinking are depressed, the center
focuses on addressing the underly-
"My dad quit the team to make a
statement andtake aestand because
Willis Ward was his friend," he said.

The story brought tears to his eyes
because it showed his father's char-
acter, Steve Ford said.
Ford also talked about when his
mother was suffering from alcohol-
ism and his father led an interven-
tion. Ford said the media was never
able to grasp the personal moments
that taught him about how his father
led his family and the country.
David Kennerly, the Ford family's
official White House photographer,
said he was treated him like fam-
ily and given him total access to the
family's personal moments.
"(The press) was nowhere as bad
as it is now,"Kennerly said. "He was
really good with the press; he was
not afraid of them. It was just that he
had a good relationship with them;
he never resented them."

overtime and lack of a living wage - at least
until she and other workers took action.
They staged a strike and petitioned until
management allowed them to unionize.
Labor conditions improved because the
workers were allowed paid sick leave and
basic minimum wage. The female work-
ers were given paid maternity leave.
"(Factory management) gave in because
they could not deal with us, they could not con-
tain us anymore," Musavi said.
After worker conditions improved, however,
brands including Champion, Russell, Kmart
and Wal-Mart started cutting down on orders.
They were reacting to the factory's slightly
higher costs compared to other non-unionized
factories in the area.
the michigan da
"Now factories are shutting down because
brands are moving their business to cut costs,"
Musavi said to the rapt audience. "You are the
consumers; you have the power to help us."
Siti Malikhah from the PT Kolon Factory in
Indonesia had a similar story.
After workers in her factory learned their
rights and banned together to protest their mis-
treatment, the management signed an agree-
ment that permitted unionization, improved
labor conditions and gave the workers benefits
like health care.
However, Malikhah said Nike has since
stopped ordering from their factory in favor of
cheaper goods produced elsewhere.
"Before the union, Nike placed a lot of
orders, but now with the union and improved
conditions, Nike has pulled its orders;'
Malikhah said through a translator. "Now
with no orders we and the management are
She said her factory only has two buyers
now as opposed to the five they had before
unionization. When asked what her hopes for
the future are, Malikhah said she hopes her
factory does not close.
"USAS's program has become hope for us.
I hope and pray that it succeeds because we
need support from all sides ... for the future,
(the workers and factories) can't do anything"
she said. "It's really amazing the University
students can work together with workers in
Jessica Rutter, a national organizer for
USAS, spoke of the need for "student power
to support worker power, to improve the world
for all of us."
"Workers are fighting every single day to
change the conditions in their factories," she
said. "They know what's wrong and they want

Finally! After six months, your ruler,
Mars, finally makes a shift. Whew! You
will feel this. Now you will focus less on
money and more on your communica-
tions with others.
(April 20 to May 20)
For the past six months, there's been a
buildup of tension within you because
Mars has been in your sign all this time.

weeks.) But it finally moves today.
Breathe a sigh of relief!
(May 21 to June 20)
Today Mars enters your sign. This
makes you energetic, assertive and ready

feel things intensely. You don't want to
skate along on the surface of things.
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
In the month ahead, you will need
greater patience and diplomacy when
dealing with partners and close friends.
You might think others are aggressive.

You're ready to get down to hard
work. You want to paint, clean, sort,
organize and make a home for every-
thing. You want the scissors when you
