The Michigan Student Sustain-
ability Coalition, which ordered
shirts last year, plans to buy about
400 shirts through the Fair Tees
program next year, said School of
Music, Theatre and Dance senior
Andrew Munn, the co-chair of the
group's steering committee.
Everts said she hopes that other
organizations - especially those
that usually order many T-shirts
like the Greek system, residence
hall councils and academic depart-
ments - will follow the Sustain-
ability Coalition's lead.
"People can be convinced it is
important if they see other people
are taking an interest in it," she
Some student groups, though,
will likely stick with traditional
apparel-ordering options. LSA
junior Justin Zatkoff, chairman of
the Michigan Federation of Col-
lege Republicans, said the price of
the shirts will still be an overriding
factor for many student groups.
"We should never boycottwork-
ers in a third world country who
might be starving otherwise," he
said. "Whoever gives me the best
price is who I would go for. Let the
free market decide."
rison told him that the buyout
would be reduced to $2 million or
eliminated entirely if he chose to
leave West Virginia.
"Mike Garrison stated that he
did not believe in buyouts," Rodri-
guez wrote. "I told him the four
million dollar buyout was unfair
and Garrison agreed."

other campus venues.
About 20 students gathered
for a half hour yesterday in the
southwest corner of the Diag.
Leaders of Bridge the Gap, an
organization working to ease
tension between Arab and Jew-
ish students, had planned to
march from the Diag to the Flem-
ing Administration Building and
sing "The Victors" in an effort to
persuade University officials to
move commencement to Michi-
gan Stadium. The low turnout
disappointed event organizers.
LSA senior Megan Mirten-
baum, co-president of Bridge the
Gap, said she expected more to
come out to yesterday's rally.
"There were over 200 con-
firmed guests on Facebook, for
what that's worth," she said.
At one point during the rally,
Mirtenbaum looked around and
asked the small crowd if anyone
knew people they could call to
convince them to come. No one
The low turnout raised specu-
lation about why so few showed
up to the event.
LSA senior Jane Rho, creator
of the Facebook group "Petition
To Keep Spring Graduation 2008
At The Big House" - which has
more than 1,000 members - said
the rally's low turnout was the
result of bad planning.
"It wasn't publicized enough
and it was in the middle of class-
es," said Rho, who didn't attend
the event. "Look at the surveys
and feedback and how many
students showed up to meet the
administration - that was a good
representation of how we were
voicing our opinions."
Ross School of Business senior
Fouad Hassan attributed the lack
of turnout to an article in yester-
day's edition of The Michigan
Daily that said Eastern Michigan
University had been ruled out as
a possible venue for commence-
Hassan said some students
may have been content with the
decision to keep the ceremony on
"I'm not surprised," he said.
"It's kind of already achieved
the purpose. But if we had done
this yesterday, the turnout would
have been much higher."
Mirtenbaum said the rally's
organizers decided the rally was
still important because it would
let students show their support of
the University's decision to move
the ceremony back to campus.
"We can't really be upset over
the outcome of the march," she
said. "Technically, we already
won the battle."
LSA senior Erica Fried-
man said she attended the rally
because she still feels strongly
about the ceremony being in
"It's great news, but we're still
concerned about where it will be
here," she said.
Asked whether she thought
the rally would make a differ-

and smiled sheepishly.

GUANGZHOU, China (AP) -
Hundreds of thousands of migrant
workers desperate to get home for
the Chinese New Year shivered in
the cold under a 'sea of umbrellas
outside train stations Tuesday, as
the worst winter storms in half a
century paralyzed China.
One of the world's biggest annual
mass movements of humanity - a
record 178.6 million people, more
than the population of Russia -
were expected to travel by train for
the holiday, according to railway
Most of those stranded at train
stations were migrant workers
trying to leave booming southern
Guangdong province - often called
the world's factory floor because
it makes everything from Honda
sedans to Apple iPods and Nike
In China, the New Year holiday,
which begins Feb. 7, is as important
as Christmas is in the West. For
most migrant workers, it's the only
time of the year when they can visit
their hometowns, and they often
take a month off to feast with their
families and perform a series of
The China Meteorological
Administration said Wednesday
the stormy weather, including more
snow, was expected to continue for
