World AIDS Week, said yesterday
she thought this year's series of

She also said she was pleased
to see so many students eager
to attend and participate in the
events, but added that these same
students were now asking her how
to get involved in HIV and AIDS
prevention and awareness organi-
"Now, after a week's worth
of awareness," Rheingans said,
"they're like, 'I'm aware. What
can I do now?"'
Another organizer for World
AIDS Week, Jennifer Chapin-
Smith of the Washtenaw Inter-
faith HIV/AIDS Network, said
yesterday she thought the entire
week had gone really well, and
was especially impressed by the
cooperation of the many groups
who helped host events and plan
out the week.
"I've been really pleased to see
all the groups here together," she
said. "And it's not just student
groups but community groups like
our own, too."
As she sipped on a cup of hot

For the automakers to receive the
funds, the government will likely
require the companies to allow fed-
eral oversight and to make drastic
cuts and eco-friendly decisions.
"There is a consensus that there
must be conditions attached," Levin
said. "There must be an adminis-

Martin Zimmerman, a former

government involvement wouldn't
necessarily be a bad thing, point-

"It's reasonable for Congress to
have an oversight role and to ask
that the companies pursue plans
that allow them to pay back the

According to David Cole, a for-

chairman of the Ann Arbor-based
Center for Automotive Research,

Cole and Zimmerman both said
they were certain that warrants -
rights to buy stock at a fixed price
- would be included in the bailout
