'U' of Colorado ranks top party school

The University of Colo-
rado at Boulder took first
place in Playboy's 2011 party
school rankings that were
released last week, accord-
ing to an April 15 ABC News
article.
When creating the rank-
ings, Playboy looks at the
male to female ratio, the
percentage of winning
sports teams and how close
the schools are to beaches
and ski slopes, the article
states. Playboy also conducts
interviews with students
and alumni of the schools.
Last year's top party
school, The University of
Texas at Austin, slipped to
CRIME NOTES

number five this year, ABC
news reported.
Penn State University
and Arizona State Universi-
ty took the second and third
spots, respectively, in this
year's ranking.
LA SALLE UNIVERSITY
TRIES TO CENSOR
SCHOOL NEWSPAPER
The Collegian, the stu-
dent newspaper at La Salle
University in Philadelphia,
left the area above the
fold blank in last Wednes-
day's paper, except for the
words "See below the Fold,"
according to an April 15

article in The Philadelphia
Inquirer.
The newspaper made the
decision after being granted
permission to run a story
about a professor having
exotic dancers come to an
off-campus business semi-
nar on the condition that it
run below the fold, the arti-
cle states.
The article about the
professor was written and
ready to run in the paper
on April 7, but the paper
was told it could not run the
story until the university
had completed its investi-
gation, according to The
Inquirer. After the students

at The Collegian argued
to run the story since mul-
tiple other news outlets had
already reported it, the dean
of students agreed to let the
story run, pending that the
university's lawyer read it
beforehand, The Inquirer
reported.
The story was originally
slated to be a front-page
feature article, according
to The Inquirer. But when
the students were told the
article had to run below the
fold, they moved the entire
section, includingthe news-
paper's masthead, below
the fold.

N. Carolina gets worst of
storms that ravaged U.S. I

Tornados killed
45 people across 6
states, destroying
homes and cars
ASKEWVILLE, N.C. (AP) -
A tornado-spewing storm sys-
tem that killed at least 45 people
acrosshalfthe countryunleashed
its worst fury on North Caro-
lina, where homes broke apart,
trees snapped and livestock were
swept into the air. Residents in
the capital city and rural ham-
lets alike mourned the dead,
marveled at their own survival
yesterday and began to clean up
devastated neighborhoods.
Observers reported more
than 60 tornadoes across North
Carolina on Saturday, but most
of the state's 21 confirmed deaths
occurred in two rural counties. A
thunderstorm spawned a tornado
that killed four people in south-
eastern Bladen County, then kept

dropping tornadoes as it hop-
scotched more than 150 miles,
eventually moving into Bertie
County and killingli more.
Heavy winds swept some
homes from their foundations,
demolished others and flipped
cars on tiny rural roads between
Askewville and Colerain, Bertie
County Manager Zee Lamb said.
At least three of those who died
were from the same family, he
said.
The winds ripped to shreds
the doublewide mobile home in
Askewville where Justin Dun-
low had sought shelter for his
3-year-old daughter, 5-year-old
son and himself. The 23-year-old
roofer, whose own mobile home
nearby also was destroyed, lay on
both children as the storm did its
worst.
"I just started praying, and the
wall fell on top of us and that's
what kept us there," he said. "I
can replace the house, butI can't
replace my babies. And that's
what I thought about. I'm alive.

My babies are alive."
In Bladen County, Milton
McKoy had thought his mobile
home in Ammon was out of the
storm's path before he saw a tor-
nado over the tops of pine trees,
lifting pigs and other animals
into the sky.
"It looked just like 'The Wiz-
ard of Oz,"' said his wife, Audrey.
The couple took shelter in the
laundry room as the tornado
snapped trees and carried off
several homes in the neighbor-
hood. When they stepped out, it
took them a moment to figure out
the twister had turned their own
home around, leavingthem inthe
backyard.
The violent weather began
Thursday in Oklahoma, where
two people died, before cutting
across the Deep South on Friday
and hitting North Carolina and
Virginia on Saturday. Authori-
ties said seven people died in
Arkansas; seven in Alabama;
seven in Virginia; and one in
Mississippi.

Police fire on demonstrators
in Iraq, at least 35 wounded

Seven shot, dozens
harmed by tear
gas and rocks in
northern city
SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq
(AP) - Iraqi police opened fire
yesterday on stone-throwing
crowds protesting government
corruption in Iraq's northern
Kurdish region. At least 35
people were wounded, some of
them by gunfire, a doctor said.
It was the latest protest to
turn violent in Sulaimaniyah,
a city in the normally peace-
ful Kurdish region where
demonstrations calling for
political and economic reforms
have been held nearly every day

over the last several months.
A day earlier, Prime Minister
Nouri al-Maliki lauded Iraq's
security forces as ready to protect
the country in a meetingwith U.S.
House Speaker John Boehner.
In Sulaimaniyah, located 160
miles (260 kilometers) north-
east of Baghdad, witnesses said
some police fired into the air to
clear protesters blocking a road
and others shot into the crowd.
Seven people were shot, includ-
ing two local journalists, said
Sulaimaniyah health director
Dr. Regald Hama Rasheed.
He said the other 28 people
were wounded by thrown rocks
or were hospitalized because
of breathing problems from the
tear gas.
No deaths were immediately
reported. At least nine protest-

ers have been killed in anti-
government demonstrations in
Iraq's semiautonomous Kurdish
region since Feb. 17.
The demonstrations appear to
have taken inspiration from the
other flashes of unrest spreading
across the Middle East and North
Africa.
Meeting with Boehner on Sat-
urday night, al-Maliki repeated
his belief that U.S. forces will no
longer be needed to help Iraq's
shaky stability after the end of
the year.
"The Iraqi armed and secu-
rity forces are able to handle
the responsibility of maintain-
ing security, and work in a pro-
fessional way," al-Maliki told
Boehner, according to a state-
ment issued by the prime minis-
ter's office.

Corruption charge
is latest step to bring
old regime to justice
CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's ex-
prime minister and two other
former Cabinet members were
charged with corruption yester-
day in the latest step in a cam-
paign to bring officials of Hosni
Mubarak's toppled regime to jus-
tice for years of corruption, rights
abuses and other crimes.
Egypt's attorney-general for
public funds charged former
Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif, ex-
Finance Minister Yousef Boutros
Ghali and former Interior Minis-
ter Habib el-Adly with wasting
more than $15 million in public
money and profiteering, the offi-
cial news agency reported.
Mubarak was forced to step
down on Feb. 11 after mas-
sive protests against his three
decades in power. One of the
protesters' chief complaints was
the corruption that pervades
the government, its bureaucracy

and virtually all levels of soci-
ety. Also driving the campaign to
bring the former president and
those connected to him to trial
are concerns that remnants of
the regime could maintain some
influence.
Mubarak and his sons were
placed in custody Wednesday for
15 days while they are investigat-
ed on corruption allegations and
over the deaths of hundreds of
protesters in the 18-day uprising.
The case involving his prime
minister and the two other ex-
Cabinet ministers centers on a
deal with a German business-
man. They are accused of grant-
ing him a contract to sell license
plates in Egypt without opening
up the deal to competitive bid-
ding. The German businessman
is also charged with corruption
in the case.
A trial date has not been set.
El-Adly, the ex-interior min-
ister, is already facing trial
on other corruption charges.
Egypt's protest movement also
wants to see him prosecuted
for rights abuses carried out by

the internal security forces that
were under his control.
Boutros Ghali, who is out-
side the country, is a nephew of
former U.N. Secretary-General
Boutros Boutros-Ghali.
Nazif served as prime minis-
ter since 2004.
Mubarak has remained in a
hospital in the Red Sea resort
of Sharm el-Sheikh until he can
be transferred to a military hos-
pital. He was hospitalized with
unspecified heart problems on
Tuesday, the same day his ques-
tioning began.
A security official, speak-
ing on condition of anonymity
because he was not authorized to
speak to the media, said the delay
is primarily related to ensuring
his security.
The director of the hospital in
Sharm el-Sheikh, Mohamed Fad-
lallah, said Mubarak was in good
condition.
A witness who visited the hos-
pital said Mubarak had asked to
change the sealed windows in his
hospital suite for ones that open to
allow in fresh air.
