The potential shortage of a
key component used to make
fuel lines and brake lines could
force automakers in the U.S. and
around the world to close car and
truck plants as they run short of
parts.
Auto industry executives have
scheduled an unprecedented
meeting today in suburban
Detroit to talk about the prob-
lem. Officials from as many as
10 automakers and dozens of
parts supply companies are set
to attend.
A March 31 explosion at Evon-
ik Industries in western Germany
killed two workers and damaged
a factory that makes CDT. That
chemical is a key component in a
nylon resin called PA12, which is
used to make a specialized plas-
tic. The plastic is used in auto fuel
lines and brake lines. It is also a
component in solar cells, pipe-
lines, sporting goods and house-
hold items.
PHILADELPHIA
Aides soft-pedal
remarks Romney
made to donors
Mitt Romney's aides soft-ped-
aled his latest tax pronounce-
ments yesterday, insisting he
wasn't tipping his hand when
he told donors privately that he
might seek to end the tax break
for mortgages on second homes
and curb other deductions for the
wealthy as part of tax reform.
"He was just discussing ideas
that came up on the campaign
trail," said former Sen. Jim Talent
of Missouri, a frequent campaign
surrogate. The remarks, made at a
closed-door fundraiser in Florida
and overheard by reporters, did
not mark any "change in policy,"
Talent said on a conference call
with reporters.
LOS ANGELES
Ex-N wo .
Firing was over
intelligent design
A former computer special-
ist with NASA's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory was laid off because
he was combative and didn't keep
his skills sharp - not because he
advocated for his belief in intel-
ligent design while at work, an
attorney said yesterday in a case
that plays on the tensions over
the controversial origins-of-life
concept.
David Coppedge, who worked
on NASA's Cassini mission
exploring Saturn and its many
moons, sued JPL for wrongful
termination in a case that has
generated intense interest among
i proponents of intelligent design
- the idea that life is too complex
to have evolved through evolu-
tion alone.
UNITED NATIONS
U.N. condemns
North Korean
rocket launch
The U.N. Security Coun-

cil strongly condemned North
Korea's rocket launch yesterday,
announcing it will impose new
sanctions and warning of further
action if Pyongyang conducts
another launch or a new nuclear
test.
Acting swiftly, the 15-member
council, including North Korea's
closest ally China, adopted a
presidential statement under-
scoring its united opposition to
Friday's launch - which violated
U.N. sanctions - and the mili-
tary policy being pursued by the
country's young new leader, Kim
Jong Un.
The council directed its sanc-
tions committee to expand the list
of North Koreans entities subject
to asset freezes and identify more
proliferation-sensitive technology
' to be banned for transfer to and
from the country.

In years past, Order of Angell
had been accused of perform-
ing Native American rituals
during meetings. In 1989, the
society agreed to eliminate all
references to Native American
culture, with the exception of
their name, Michigamua.
In 2000, members of the Stu-
dent of Color Coalition allegedly
found Native American artifacts
on the seventh floor of the Mich-
igan Union, where order met
for weekly meetings. However,
Order continues to deny ever
using or knowing these objects
existed, claiming they were set
up in the room unbeknownst to
the members of Order.
Hoping to distance itself from
its past, Michigamua changed its
name to Order of Angell in 2007.

resentatives from CAPS were
available to speak with attendees
for support.
Reid Hamilton, president
of the Association of Religious
Counselors, began the memorial
by stating that despite the diffi-
culty of death, each student has
left behind his orcher legacy.
"The death of a student
means that our community is
diminished and our joy is cast in
shadow," Hamilton said. "Never-
theless, we take this time to be
grateful for their presence in our
lives ... we are grateful for the joy
that they brought us and for their
memories."MedrFmyAad
Laura Blake Jones, dean of
students and associate vice
president for student affairs,
addressed the importance of the
service in honoring those stu-
dents who have died.
"This memorial service marks
a tradition of collectively honor-
ing and remembering students
who have passed away during
an academic year," Jones said.
"While all of these studentsN N
have been remembered on and
off campus in a variety of other
ways, this ceremony is an oppor-
tunity for the entire University
of Michigan community to be
together and to rememberthem."
