niversity of Michigan has a

a committee comprised of
administrators, students

'he regents, the board will

nt.

Inan interview with The Michi-
gan Daily last month, President
Mary Sue Coleman said divestment
should only be used for in extreme
circumstances.
"The University shouldn't use
divestment to make political state-
ments," Coleman said.
The University of Michigan has
only divested for political reasons
twice in its history.
In 1978, the regents decided that
South African apartheid was cause
for divestment from that country.
The second divestment occurred
in 2000, when the Board of Regents
voted to withdraw the University's
holdings in tobacco manufactur-
ing companies. The regents agreed
with the conclusion of the Univer-
sity's Ad Hoc Advisory Committee
on Tobacco Investments, which
was formed by then-University
President Lee Bollinger.
The committee argued that the
tobacco industry was guilty of "dis-
honest, deceptive, and generally
reprehensible conduct unparalleled
in the history of American business
and at a cost of millions of lives."
In an interview with The Michi-
gan Daily last year, Regent Larry
Deitch (D-Bingham Farms) said
he now thinks it was a mistake to
divest from tobacco companies. He
voted for divestment at the time.
"It's just not a good idea," Deitch
said. "Many of us feel that divest-
ment should only be used in the
most extreme and egregious exam-
ples, and even then there's a ques-
tion of whether it's a good thing for
universities to do."

EMU
From page 1
of student affairs, was given paid
leave in the aftermath of Dickin-
son's death.
Fallon said it is standard proce-
dure to place the head of a depart-
ment on leave while his or her
department is under investigation.
Several audience members said
the event made them question their
safety on campus.

Riggleman asked why EMU
didn't change the locks of Hill's
outside doors if a murderer may
have taken her keys.
"Shouldn't we have been told
there might still be a danger?"
asked Jaclyn Armstrong, an EMU
student who also lives in Hill Resi-
dence Hall.
She said Dickinson's death
seemed like a suicide.
"You should not jump to conclu-
sions," Hiller replied. "The facts of

Friday, March 9, 2007 - 7
the case will be disclosed during the
course of the court proceedings."
EMU history Prof. Mark Higbee
questioned why EMU administra-
tion decided to say that no foul play
was suspected in the first release it
issued after Dickinson's death.
"Is it normal to describe the
investigation in terms that deceive
the public to which the investment
really is?" he asked.
"I'd have to say it is not," Hiller
replied.

BASKETBALL
From page 1
spared their fans the anticipated
embarrassment of a nationally-
televised pummeling. At Crisler
Arena on Saturday, Michigan had
the game won until the final four
minutes sunk its upset hopes.
Why can't the third time be a
charm?
People may think it's a stretch.
The Wolverines lost at Crisler
despite the fact that Ohio State
didn't look like it was trying for
half of the game. And even with the
possibility of neutral fans rooting
for the underdog, nothing can be as
loud and electric as Crisler Arena
was a week ago.
But it's tournament time, and one
should never underestimate a senior
in his last conference tournament.
Last season, Gerry McNa-
mara willed Syracuse to a Big East
Tournament title. Without it, the
Orange might have been stuck
watchingthe NCAA Tournament
from home.
Point guard Dion Harris, or fel-
low seniors center Courtney Sims
and forward Brent Petway, could

become Michigan's version of
McNamara. None of them burned
up the stat sheet yesterday, but
their individual efforts helped the
Wolverines slip past the Gophers.
Harris struggled from the floor,
but was consistent from the free
throw line (6-for-6) and
led the team with 14 points.
Sims had just four points, but he
grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds.
And Petway offered the best of
both worlds. He scored eight points
and brought down five rebounds
himself.
Any one of them canhave a great
game. Or all of them can have just
a good game. Either way, when any
or all of the seniors are playing well,
the Wolverines have a chance to
win.
This afternoon they may just be
hungry enough to beat the Buck-
eyes.
And that will get them one game
closer to the NCAA Tournament.
Then maybe, just maybe, we'll
have somethingto get excited
about.
