APPLICATIONS
From page LA
sions data, a total of 2,460
underrepresented minorities
had applied to the University
by the beginning of February
- a 5 percent increase from
the same point last year.
The increase in applicants
may have been due to the fact
that Proposal 2 was loom-
ing. Students at Cass Tech-
nical High School in Detroit
said that before the initiative
passed, University admissions
officers encouraged them
to apply as early as possible
because it would be harder
to get in if Proposal 2 was
approved.
"Admissions officers came
to our school and told us to
apply early," said Cass Tech
senior Dwayne Riley, who has
already enrolled at the Uni-
versity for next year.
Admissions officers visited
Cass Tech - a major feeder
school for underrepresent-
ed minorities who attend
the University - frequently
throughout the fall.
Ashley Grant, also a senior
at Cass, said the Universi-
ty's image, may have even
improved since Proposal 2
passed.
"I definitely don't think
Proposal 2 hurt Michigan's
image," said Grant, who
is still waiting to find out
whether she's been admit-
ted to the University. "If
anything, I think it made
the school look a lot better
because it was trying to do
everything in its power to
admit as many students of
color as possible."
Doris Taylor Walls, a

guidance counselor at Cass
Tech, has worked as a liaison
between high school students
and admissions counselors for
33 years.
While she has taken notice
of the University's increased
minority recruiting, Walls
said what matters mostto stu-
dents is that the University is
reaching out.
"I think students at Cass
were aware of Michigan's
stance on Proposal 2," Walls
said. "The simple fact that
the University stood up to
fight for diversity matters to
them."
Another Cass senior Rayna
Wright, has also been admit-
ted to the University, but is
still waiting to hear back from
Yale. She echoed Walls's argu-
ment.
"There may be some stu-
dents who are afraid to apply
now because there is no
affirmative action anymore,"
Wright said. "But it's still a
great school, and it's helped
that (University administra-
tors) have made clear their
need for diversity."
ALUMNI PITCH IN
Over the past few weeks,
thousands of phone calls and
e-mails have gone out to Uni-
versity alumni asking them to
help recruitunderrepresented
minorities.
But at first, many in the
University administration -
including admissions officers
- didn't know where the calls
were coming from.
It turned out that the Uni-
versity's Alumni Association
coordinated the outreach
calls.
Alumni Association Presi-
dent Steve Grafton said alum-

ni have been helping recruit
prospective students to the
University for years.
But he said this is the
first time the Alumni Asso-
ciation has targeted minori-
ties.
"We determined it would
be good if we could help
increase outreach, and in par-
ticular convince underrep-
resented minority students
who have been admitted to
the University to enroll,"
Grafton said.
The Alumni Association
paid for more than 8,000
automated phone calls and
sent out about 5,000 e-mails
to minority alumni asking for
help in the recruitment pro-
cess.
Grafton said nearly 300 of
those have offered to help in
some way.
Grafton said one of the rea-
sons his group decided to get
involved in minority recruit-
ment was the negative per-
ception of the University after
Proposal 2.
"Part ofit for us is that we're
concerned about what kind of
message - even though the
University is not sending it
- the passage of Proposal 2
sends to minority students,"
he said.
Cunningham, though, was
emphatic in expressing her
belief that the affirmative
action ban hasn't hurt the
University's image among
potential applicants.
"This is one of the top
schools academically," Cun-
ningham said. "It's very rig-
orous, but we believe that
underrepresented minor-
ity students are getting the
message that they are wel-
come."

RAPE
From page 1A
hair, facial hair and a "dirty"
appearance.
There are no known wit-
nesses, and police haven't
identified any suspects, Con-
nelly said.
The Department of Public
Safety issued a campus-wide
crime alert last night that
included a description of the
suspect.
The alert was issued
because the suspect is still
at large, DPS spokeswoman
Diane Brown said.
In the past three years, DPS
has issued four crime alerts
for attempted rapes on Uni-
versity property perpetrated
by people the victim didn't
know, Brown said.
In all four cases the victims
were able to escape before full
rape occurred, she said.
Brown said she couldn't
remember an on-campus rape
reported in which the vic-
tim didn't know the attacker
being reported to DPS in
seven years.
Both Brown and Connelly
called such cases rare.
Connelly said that there
have been three reported
rapes in which the parties
didn't know each other in Ann
Arbor during the five years
he has worked in the police
department. One victim was
a University student, Connelly
said.
"The vast majority of cases
where sexual assaults are
alleged involve people who are
known to the victim," he said.
Ann Arbor police are ask-
ing anyone with information
to call the tip line at 734-996-
3199.

COACH
From page IA
Still, Burnett was under
fire as the season ended. Both
the Detroit Free Press and
the Ann Arbor News - two
papers thatdon'tusuallycover
Michigan women's basketball
- ran stories critical of her in
the last two weeks.
According to the athletic
department, she met with
players following the meet-
ing with Martin, but the team
hasn'tyetbeenmade available
for comment.
Burnett will not do any
direct interviews with the
media, but may make another
statement through the ath-
letic department, athletic
department spokesman Marc
Ressler said.
Burnett had one year
remaining on her five-year
contract with Michigan,
according to a copy of the
document obtained through
the Freedom of Information
Act. She was paid $154,000 in
base salary for her first sea-
son. Her base salary is adjust-
ed each year in accordance
with the University's Salary
Program. Her base salary was
$168,279.96 this past season.
Burnett was also paid an
additional $124,000 each

year for her "television,
radio, Internet, shoe and/or
apparel sponsorships, con-
sulting, development or pro-
motion and other services"
and receives the use of a car
with paid insurance and
maintenance. According to
the contract, Burnett can
resign for any reason before
the basketball season begins
without penalty.
If Burnett had been fired
without cause before the end
of March, she would have
been owed her entire-salary
for the year.
If Burnett was still
employed by Michigan on
April 1, the University would
have been forced to pay her
entire 2007-2008 salary.
The Centralia, Mo. native
came to Michigan after a year
off following an immensely
successful 15-year run at
Southwest Missouri State
(now Missouri State). She
led the Lady Bears to a 319-
136 record (.701), 10 NCAA
Tournaments bids, nine regu-
lar-season conference cham-
pionships and six conference
tournament titles.
She took Missouri State to
two Final Fours in nine years.
Burnett's run to the Final
Four in 2001 is often credited
to her shooting guard, Jackie

Stiles, who was the NCAA's
career scoring leader when
she graduated.
But she suddenly resigned
as head coach at Southwest
Missouri State in 2002, citing
"philosophical differences"
with the administration. At
the time, Burnett said she was
dissatisfied with the South-
west Missouri State's dedi-
cation to building a top-25
program.
Minnesota offered her its
head coaching job, but she
turned it down. Although
Burnett cited possible NCAA
sanctions for the Gophers
among her reasons for not tak-
ing the job, some Minnesota
players e-mailed their athletic
director with concerns about
hiring Burnett, according to
The Associated Press.
As Burnett sat out for a
year, rumors swirled that
someone - possibly Missouri
State Athletic Director Bill
Rowe - was badmouthing
her and hurting her effort to
get a job.
This time, though, the part-
ing seems more amiable.
"We wish Cheryl and her
staff allthe best in their future
endeavors," Martin said. "Our
search for a new women's
basketball coach will begin
immediately."

For Wednesday, March 7, 2007
ARIES
(March 21 to April 19)
Communication with groups, friends
and organizations will begin to improve
now. Feel free to move forward with
important new ventures.
TAURUS
(April 20to May 20)
Things have been stalled in the water
lately. Today you have a green light to go
forward with anything that affects your
career and your reputation among your
peers.
GEMINI
(May 21 to June 20)
School plans or anything related to
travel that might have been delayed
recently will now move forward much
more easily. Thank goodness! You're
back in the saddle again.
CANCER
(June 21 to July 22)
Whatever delays have plagued you
with inheritances, taxes, debt and the
like will now bea thing of the past. (One
hopes.) You can move forward in these
areas with greater confidence.
LEO
(July 23to Aug. 22)
Ex-partners and old friends might
have played a role in your life recently.
(Not easy for some of you.) Now this
focus switches to current and even future
events.
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Delays, goof-ups and confused com-
munication have dogged your steps at
work. As of today, these little errors will
return to normal.
LIBRA
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Everything havingto do with children,
sports, the entertainment world and
vacations has been a bit topsy-turvy
lately. Now that Mercury has turned
direct, things will be more reliable in
these areas.

SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
There have been so many delays on
your home front! Now things will move
forward much more smoothly. (You can
relax on this score.)
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Perhaps more than others, you have
suffered from delays, breakdowns in
communication, mixed-up messages,
lost papers and transportation night-
mares. You'll be glad to know that this
horrid planetary influence is over.
(Gasp!)
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22 toJan. 19)
Recently, checks have been late in the
mail, and delays and errors with a num-
ber of financial transactions have been a
problem. This stressful influence ends
today. Yay!
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20to Feb. 18)
Mercury has been retrograde in your
sign, causing you all kinds of confusion
and delays. Not a pretty picture.
However, as of today, things will tend to
return to their normal level of insanity.
PISCES
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Behind-the-scenes issues and dealings
with the government can now move for-
ward more efficiently and speedily.
Since your career looks so good this
year, this is welcome news.
YOU BORN TODAY You're com-
plex. You have a fine mind that grasps
abstract ideas. You want to give form to
concepts. Personally, you are caring,
giving and generous. You're also secre-
tive and a bit of a dreamer. You're a good
friend to those you care about. The year
ahead is full of exciting new beginnings.
Open any door!
Birthdate of: Ivan Lendl, tennis
player; Rachel Weisz, actress; Wanda
