SPRING COMMENCEMENT
Holder to deliver address

Attorney general
will speak at Law
School Senior Day
By HALEY GLATTHORN,
ALEXANDRA MONDALEK
and ANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily News Editor and
Daoy StajReporters
U.S. Attorney General Eric
Holder has been selected to
send off University Law School
graduates at the school's annual
commencement address during

its Senior Day festivities, the
Law School announced yester-
day.
Holder, the country's first
African-American attorney gen-
eral, will speak to the nearly 370
graduates at Hill Auditorium on
May 6.
Law School Dean Evan
Caminker said he is looking
forward to a commencement
speaker that represents the
public sector in a positive light.
A student advisory committee,
also advised the decision.
"Traditionally, the com-
mencement speakers discuss

their personal experiences
after law school, someone who
has taken different paths that
can provide advice or inspire
our graduates," Caminker said.
"I hope that Attorney General
Holder follows in that tradi-
tion."
The excitement surrounding
the announcement of Holder's
visit to the University contrasts
popular sentiments of last year's
commencement speaker, U.S.
Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio),
who has a history of not sup-
porting LGBTQ issues.
Holder earned undergraduate

and law degrees from Columbia
University before accepting his
first position at the Department
of Justice in 1976. After' serv-
ing as deputy attorney general
in 1997, he worked in a private
firm before assuming his cur-
rent post as attorney general on
Feb. 3, 2009.
He has been appointed to
legal posts by several presidents,
including former President Ron-
ald Reagan and former Presi-
dent Bill Clinton. Caminker said
Holder's prominence in the fed-
eral government prompted the

AROUND CAMPUS
Museum seeks to document,
preserve mammal specimens

University has
one of the largest
collections in the
United States
By AUSTEN HUFFORD
Daily StaffReporter
Past the two stone pumas
guarding the entrance and
through the large circular
atrium behind the University's
Museum of Natural History
lays one of the largest collec-
tions of mammal specimens in

the country.
While the University's
Museum of Zoology's Mam-
mal Division has remained
relatively unchanged for the
past century, the Internet now
allows the collection to reach
more people than ever. The
museum's mammal collec-
tion has preserved a variety
of specimens from the col-
lection's smallest animal - a
three gram Etruscan shrew
- to its largest, a 27-foot long
humpback whale: The collec-
tion also includes many foreign
specimens- confiscated at the
Detroit Metropolitan Airport,

including the tanned hide of an
African golden cat.
The museum's 130,000
specimens.are preserved using
four different methods. The
most common is to remove an
animal's innards and bones
and stuff it with cotton, but
researchers also use flesh-
eating dermestid beetles to
remove skin and flesh to dis-
play an animal's bones. Speci-
mens can also be preserved in
alcohol and extracted DNA is
stored in liquid nitrogen.

one of the museum's curators,

By SYDNEY BERGER

It felt like a Football Satur-
day last night at the Jack Roth

Stadium Club in Michigan Sta-
dium as about 250 guests dined
with former Michigan football
coach Lloyd Carr, former Mich-
igan and NFL linebacker Dhani
Jones and graduating Michigan
defensive lineman Mike Martin,
who's expected to be a top pick
in next month's NFL draft.
At Appreciate + Reciprocate's
second annual benefit dinner,
guests had the opportunity to
mingle with the three guests

of honor throughout dinner, as
well as participate in a panel
discussion and silent auction in
which attendees could bid on
items such as a game of 1-on-1
basketball with former Michi-
gan basketball player CJ Lee.
All proceeds from the event
benefited the LSA Emergency

During this year's annual
Greek Week competition, stu-
dents involved in Greek Life

expanded community service
efforts beyond their usual fun-
draising activities.
The 10 day charity event
concluded last night with the
annual "Sing and Variety" tal-
ent competition, where Team
New York - comprised of the
Alpha Delta Pi sorority and fra-
ternities Alpha Sigma Pi and
Delta Kappa Epsilon - was
crowned the winner. The 15
teams of fraternities and soror-
ities, named after large U.S. cit-

ies, raised money for six local
charities.
Greek Week began at the
University in 1978, and the
fraternities and sororities use
the occasion to raise money for
national and local charities.
This year, proceeds will go to
several Southeastern Michi-
gan charities, including the

Research, C.S. Mott Children's
and Von Voigtlander Women's
