Ann Arbor police
continue to follow
up on 600 tips
By ANT MITCHELL
Daily StaffReporter
After the 'string of sexual
assaults in Ann Arbor this sum-
mer, police are still on the hunt
for one or more perpetrators.
Six assaults - four of which
were sexual assaults, including

two rapes - occurred in park-
ing garages and on streets near
campus throughout July. The
incidents drew national media
attention, and the Ann Arbor
Police Department called upon
the FBI for assistance in the
investigation. However, since
July there have not been any
assaults with suspects that
match the descriptions of the
suspect(s) in July.
Ann Arbor Police Chief Bar-
nett Jones said in a talk with

In Labor Day visit,
Obama talks Mich.
revitalization
By BETHANY BIRON
Daily News Editor
DETROIT - On an unusual-
ly chilly September afternoon
yesterday, President Barack
Obama delivered a Labor Day

address at the Renaissance
Center here, emphasizing the
importance of bipartisanship
in determining policy to aug-
ment national employment and
strengthen the economy.
Obama's address precedes
his scheduled speech to Con-
gress on Thursday regard-
ing upcoming initiatives for
job improvement. His visit to
Detroit also follows a Sept.
2 report from the U.S. Labor

Department declaring a
national net job change of zero
for the first time since 1945.
The event began with a per-
formance by Aretha Frank-
lin, the "Queen of Soul," who
energized the shi-vering audi-
ence with soulful renditions
of her classic hits. Franklin
was followed by speeches from
Michigan AFL-CIO President
Mark Gaffney, U.S. Secretary
of Labor Hilda Solis and United

Auto Workers member Gha-
man Goodwin-Die.
Obama began his address by
thanking those in attendance
for striving to improve the
prosperity of the city of Detroit
and the nation amid a difficult
economic period. The open-
ing was immediately followed
by exuberant chants from the
crowd cheering "Four more
years!" and waving posters that

SMOKE-FREE INITIATIVE
Administrators expect a smooth
transition to smoke-free campus

OSCR to handle
complaints for
ban violations
By KAITLIN WILLIAMS
Daily StaffReporter
Students and faculty returning
to campus this week may find the
air abit fresher.
More than two months after
the implementation of a campus-

wide smoking ban, which went
into effect July 1, thousands of
students have returned to a clean-
er campus atmosphere. Despite
the change, University officials
say they think students will easily
adapt to the new policy, and vio-
lations of the ban will be handled
smoothly.
Robert Winfield, co-chair of
the Smoke-Free University Steer-
ing Committee, the University's
chief health officer and direc-
tor of University Health Service,

said that while the smoking ban
took effect this summer, the full
impact of the initiative won't be
felt until students and faculty set-
tle in for the fall semester.
In May 2010, Michigan also
instated a smoking ban in public
places such as restaurants and
bars. Since the push to reduce
public smoking has been made at
the state and locallevels, Winfield
said he thinks the University's
ban will be effective in helping

hokey.

'U' to now pay city
of Ann Arbor for
traffic services
By ADAM RUBENFIRE
Daily StaffReporter
Football Saturday traffic this
fall might be worse than in pre-
vious seasons.

A new agreement between the
city of Ann Arbor and the Uni-
versity will reduce the amount
of traffic services the city pro-
vides on game days, increasing
the potential of congestion on
the roads. The decreased ser-
vices come into effect as the
University is now required, as
per an Ann Arbor City Council
resolution, to reimburse the city

for traffic management services
provided on game days and at
other special events, according
to an Aug. 26 City of Ann Arbor
press release.
The "Signs and Signals"
agreement came after the City
Council unanimously passedthe
resolution requiringhe Uniy
sity to compensat the city O
