Brought together by rare hair

The Weasley family in the
Harry Potter series and the "Gin-
ger Kids" episode in South Park
have given redheads widespread
exposure on the big and small
screens. And one student organi-
zation hopes to continue this pub-
licity of individuals who make up
roughly 2 percent of the United
States population.
The group, called The Red-
Headed League of Michigan,
was established about a year ago
with the aim to promote red-
head awareness on campus. After
spending a semester in a class that
had an unusually high number of
redheaded students, LSA seniors
Bridget Bodnar, Tom Burson and
Kelli Bosak decided to make the

group official.
Bodnar said though the club's
initial founders are all redheads,
the club isn't reserved exclusively
for students with red hair. It is
difficult to say the total number of
members right now because the
door of membership is constantly
revolving, she said.
"I hope that we can continue to
build the number of people who
are involved," Bodnar said.
Bodnar said she and the other
members of the club are looking
forward to their St. Patrick's Day
event today - a sit-in at Wendy's
in the Michigan Union, followed
by a bar crawl.
Aside from being a social
club, The Red-Headed League of

Michigan is involved in volunteer
work around campus that not
only benefits redheads, but also
blondes and brunettes, like hand-
ing out samples of sunscreen to
passing students in Angell Hall.
Bodnar said she hopes the
club continues to grow, but more
importantly, also maintains a
lighthearted and social atmo-
sphere. She said there is always
an implicit acknowledgment
when redheads see each other.
"It's different from many of the
other clubs that you might find on
campus because we want to have
fun. We're not trying to sell any-
thing or go anywhere," she said.

Rescue teams
continue to search
for missing bodies
NATORI, Japan (AP) - Line
after line, a list on the wall of city
hail reveals the dead. Some are
named. Others are identified only
by a short description.

Male. 70-80 years old. Wear-

Hideki Kano, a man who appears
to be in his 30s.
"I think that's my mom!" he
says. He rushes out into the snow,
headed for a makeshift morgue.
The list in Natori, and others
along Japan's northeast coast,
will only get longer.
Five days after the 9.0-mag-
nitude earthquake and tsunami,
the official death toll is more than
4,300. More than 8,000 people
are still missing, and hundreds of
national and international rescue
teams are looking for them.
In the industrial town of

Kamaishi, 70 British firefighters
in bright orange uniforms clam-
ber over piles of upturned cars to
search a narrow row of pulver-
ized homes. They wear personal
radiation detectors amid fears
of leaks from damaged nuclear
plantsfar to the south.
One woman's body is found
wedged beneath a refrigerator in
a two-story home pushed onto its
"Today and tomorrow there
is still hope that we will find
survivors," says Pete Stevenson,
head of the British rescue crews.
"We'll just keep on carrying out
the searches."
Those seeking loved ones have
posted hopeful notes in tempo-
rary shelters and other public
places. They cover the front win-
dows of Natori City Hall, block-
ing the view inside:
"I'm looking for an old man, 75
years old, please call if you find
"Kento Shibayama is in the
health center in front of the pub-
lic gym."
"To Miyuki Nakayama: Every-
one in your family is OK! We can't
use our mobile phones, so you
can't call us, but we're all here. If

you can come home, please come!
We're praying for you."
City officials have posted a list
of 5,000 people staying at shel-
ters. Yu Sato, 28, snapped photos
of the names.
I'll post them on the Inter-
net so people living far away can
check," he says.
In Otsuchi town, Reiko Miura
conducts her own search.
She's looking for a 50-year-
old nephew who couldn't flee the
tsunami because of a work injury
that had phyiscally disabled him.
His mother - Miura's sister -
asked her to look for her son.
But for the 68-year-old
woman, it is a struggle just to rec-
ognize the neighborhood, now a
sea of mud punctuated by tossed
cars and mounds of debris.
"I'm pretty sure that my family
home is here. It was a big house,"
she says upon reaching a pile
of rubble in a location that feels
familiar. But there's no sign of
her nephew, and she trudges back
across the mud, unsure what to
tell her sister.
The devastation is of such
magnitude that it is hard to imag-
ine some of the communities ever
being rebuilt.
