IN THE BALLROOM

Twister tears through Tenn. college

A tornado roared through Union
University's campus near Memphis
Tuesday, destroying nearly half of
the- university's dormitories and
three classroom buildings.
Many students waited out the
storm safely in dorm bathrooms.
Fifty-one students were taken to
the hospital, and nine were put into
intensive care.
The university is scheduled to
reopen on Wednesday, but school
officials are only just beginning to
plan the school's reconstruction.
Damages were estimated at $40 mil-
lion.
BADGERS BATTLE INTEL
A University of Wisconsin at Mad-
ison research group responsible for
controlling the university's patents
filed a lawsuit Tuesday against com-
puter hardware company Intel.
The Wisconsin Alumni Research
Foundation said Intel used a micro-
architecture design in its Core 2 Duo
processors, patented by the Univer-

sity in 1998, violating federal patent
laws.
The lawsuit seeks an order for
Intel to stop selling its processors
and to pay damages and legal fees
incurred to the organization.
Any money won from the law-
suit would be used to fund further
research at the university.
OPENING THE PURSE
The University of Texas Board of
Regents voted Thursday to spend a
larger percentage of the university's
endowment in the coming year,.
The increase would mean $27 mil-
lion more in spending for the 2008-
2009 year alone - 5 percent of the
endowment. The university hopes
to attract top professors with the
increased spending as well as stu-
dents with lowered tuition costs.
The average spending rate of
national universities last year was
4.6 percent. Congress has encour-
aged universities to raise endow-
ment spending to 5 percent annually

to help alleviate rising tuition..
TOWN SPARS WITH GOWN
The city of Oshawa in Ontario,
Canada, is preparing to pass a bylaw
next week that would force nearly
500 Durham College students out of
their homes.
The new regulation would limit
a single-family home to four bed-
rooms and would require landlords
to license their properties with the
city.
City officials claim the new laws
are necessary to stop the conversion
of single-family homes into illegal
student housingcomplexes. Students
say the city is unreasonably blaming
college students for its housing prob-
lems and faults the college for not
providing enough on-campus hous-
ing.
College officials hope a new resi-
dence hall opening in September will
resolve the problem.
