Perserving'U' history

Many students may not
be aware of major Univer-
sity milestones like when
women were first admitted
in 1870 or the announce-
ment of Jonas Salk's polio
vaccine in 1955. But one
group aims to educate the
community about these
events through physical
memorials around campus.
The University Commit-
tee on History and Tradi-
tions maintains 26 plaques
and markers on campus
that contain information
about people, events and
structures considered sig-
nificant to Universityhisto-
ry. Through these symbols,
the committee seeks to

keep events - like John
F. Kennedy's 1960 speech
that helped launch the
Peace Corps - vibrant in
students' minds long after
they take campus tours.
Former University Presi-
dent James Duderstadt
formed the committee in
1991 to lead the preserva-
tion of University history,
according to the commit-
tee's website.
The director of the
Bentley Historical Library
- which keeps all the Uni-
versity's archives and his-
torical documents as well
as information about the
state - is required to serve
on the committee, as dic-

tated by the committee's
rules on membership.
The committee answers
directly to University
Mary Sue Coleman and is
responsible for advising
the president on questions
concerning University tra-
ditions and historical con-
According to the com-
mittee's website, the last
plaque was installed in
2006, when seven mark-
ers were placed in various
places on campus, includ-
ing in Hill Auditorium,
the Law Quadrangle and
the William L. Clements

Britain, France
drafting no-fly zone
U.N. resolution
RAS LANOUF, Libya (AP) -
Repeated airstrikes by Libyan
warplanes yesterday illustrated
in his fight against rebel forces
marching toward the capital: He
controls the air. After pleading
from the uprising's leaders, Brit-
ain and France began drafting a
U.N. resolution for a no-fly zone
in Libya that could balance the
President Barack Obama
warned that the U.S. and its
NATO allies are still considering
military options to stop what he
called "unacceptable" violence by
Gadhafi's regime. NATO decided
to boost flights of AWACs surveil-
lance planes over Libya from 10 to
24 hours a day, the U.S. Ambas-
sador to NATO Ivo Daalder said.
"I want to send a very clear
message to those who are around

Colonel Gadhafi. It is their choice
to make how they operate mov-
ing forward. And they will be
held accountable for whatever
violence continues to take place,"
Obama said during remarks in
the Oval Office yesterday.
Libyan warplanes launched
multiple airstrikes yesterday on
opposition fighters regrouping at
the oil port of Ras Lanouf on the
Mediterranean coast a day after
they were driven back by a heavy
government counteroffensive
aimed at stopping the rebel drive
toward Tripoli, Gadhafi's strong-
One strike hit near a gas station
in Ras Lanouf, blasting two large
craters in the road and wounding
at least two people in a pick up
The rebels oppose any West-
ern ground troops deploying in
Libya, but they're pressing for
a no-fly zone to relieve them of
the threat from the air. The reb-
els can take on "the rockets and
the tanks, but not Gadhafi's air
force," said Ali Suleiman, a rebel

fighter at Ras Lanouf. "We don't
want a foreign military interven-
tion (on the ground), but we do
want a no-fly zone. We are all
waiting for one."
Arab Gulf countries joined the
calls for a no-fly zone, with the
foreign minister of the United
Arab Emirates saying a confer-
ence of his country's neighbors
that the U.N. Security Council
should "shoulder its historical
responsibility for protecting the
Libyan people."
Still, Western military inter-
vention does not seem imminent
- and the warnings may be an
attempt to intimidate Gadhafi
with words before deeds. British
and French officials said the no-
fly resolution was being drawn
up as a contingency and it has not
been decided whether to put it
before the U.N. Security Council,
where Russia holds veto power
and has rejected such a move.
Western officials have said a no-
fly zone does not require a U.N.
mandate, but they would prefer to
have one.

testers said they wanted more
