U. Montana paper criticized for sex column

GEITHNER GOES ABROAD

The University of Montana's
student newspaper, the Montana
Kaimin, has recently come under
fire for publishing a column on sex,
the Montana Kaimin reported.
Kirsten Juras, an assistant pro-
fessor of law at the University of
Montana, has criticized the column
calling it inappropriate, the Mon-
tana Kaimin reported.
"It's embarrassingly unprofes-
sional," Juras told the Montana
Kaimin. "It affects my reputation
as a member of the faculty."
The student-run newspaper
operates separately from the uni-
versity, which has reportedly led
some supporters to claim Juras's
criticisms are not justified.
The Montana Kaimin began
publishing the sex column, which
has discussed topics like sex toys
and virginity, at the beginning
of this semester on the opinion
page of the newspaper, the paper
reported.

TIES BETWEEN HARVARD PROFS, versity, especially in the current
DRUG COMPANIES QUESTIONED economic situation, the report said.

Harvard Medical School research-
ers have come under increased
scrutiny for potential conflicts of
interest with drug companies, The
New York Times reported.
According to the report, a
newly created internal commit-
tee is questioning the ties pro-
fessors have to pharmaceutical
companies. Members of Congress
are also reportedly investigating
the issue at other schools across
the country.
Matt Zerden, a fourth-year stu-
dent at the Medical School told
the Times that his pharmacology
professor is a paid consultant to 10
drug corporations. Accordingto the
report, 1,600 professors have rela-
tionships with drug companies.
Harvard administrators
have said corporate support is
extremely important to the uni-

UNIVERSITIES THAT TOOK
EXTRA CHANCES.HIT HARD BY
ECONOMIC DOWNTURN
Colleges and universities that take
high-risk investments, over-build on
campus and over-estimate their bud-
gets have helped contribute to the
current economic crisis, The Chroni-
cle of Higher Education reported.
The Chronicle reported that
Yale University, which typically
earns 16 percent on its investments
and had $23 billion endowed last
year, has lost one quarter of its
investments.
Increased campus construc-
tion has contributed to the current
situation. According to a survey by
The Chronicle, 14 percent of col-
lege buildings were built in the
past decade.
