After 20 years, Eastern Michi-
gan University will officially
restore its long-banned mascot,
the Huron.
Though the official mas-
cot will remain the Eagle, the
Detroit News reported that the
revived Huron debuted on the
marching band's new uniforms
during the EMU-Illinois State
game Saturday in Ypsilanti.
The Huron was removed by
Eastern in 1991 to placate fears
about negative Native-Ameri-
can stereotypes. However, Billy
Friend, the chief of the Okla-
homa-based Wyandotte tribe
that represents the Hurons, told

it "anything but an honor to the

Heavy rains could
plague survivors
of China quake


81 killed, more
than 800 injured
on Friday
BEIJING (AP) - Survivors
of multiple earthquakes in
southwestern China waited
for shelter and other supplies
on Monday amid forecasts
of heavy rains that are likely
to hinder ongoing search
The earthquakes on Friday
in a mountainous area top-
pled thousands of homes and
sent boulders tumbling down
slopes, killing 81 people and
injuring more than 800.
They struck a region of
small farms and mines near
the border between Guizhou
and Yunnan provinces, where
some of China's poorest peo-
ple live.
About 60,000 residents
from Jiaokui town in Yiliang
county, about 3 kilometers (2
miles) from the epicenter of
one of the earthquakes, had
been evacuated to open spac-
es, an official surnamed Guo
said by telephone from the
township government office.
Guo said only the older
survivors had tents, and that
food, water, cotton quilts,
clothes and medicine were
also needed.
The official Xinhua News
Agency cited local authorities
as saying mobile phone ser-
vices in the quake-hit areas
had been basically restored.
The region was expected
to be hit by medium to heavy
rains on Monday and Tues-
day, bringing the threat of
rain-triggered landslides
that could cause more casu-
alties and complicate search
efforts, Xinhua cited rescuers
as saying.
Footage from China Cen-
tral Television showed rescu-
ers and sniffer dogs running
past steep slopes because of
the risk of fist-sized stones

tumbling down. It also
showed an ambulance stuck
in stones and debris.
A resident of Luozehe
town, close to where the
quakes struck, said he and
others were evacuated to a
more central area of the coun-
ty. "It's quite hot here. There
isn't enough drinking water
or tents," said Wu Xuehong,
who described seeing dead
livestock after farm buildings
More than 11,000 tents,
10,500 quilts, 6,000 coats
and other supplies including
bottled water and rice have
been delivered to Yiliang and
more are on the way, Xinhua
said, citing the rescue head-
The first magnitude-5,6
quake struck just before 11:30
a.m. Friday and was followed
by an equally strong quake
shortly after noon. Though
of moderate strength, the
quakes were shallow Such
quakes often cause more
damage than deeper ones.
. As of noon Sunday, there
had been 279 aftershocks,
said Zhang Junwei, spokes-
man of Yunnan's seismologi-
cal bureau.
Xinhua quoted ' Zhou
Guangfu, deputy chief of the
county's education bureau,
as saying that three students
were among those who died.
He said more than 300 high
schools and primary schools
were damaged and the edu-
cation bureau would inspect
schools before allowing class-
es to continue.
In 2008, a massive
7.9-magnitude quake in Sich-
uan province, just north of
Yunnan, left 90,000 dead or
missing, including thousands
of students whose schools
State media reported Sat-
urday that the army and
police had mobilized more
than 3,200 personnel to help
rescue efforts, along with
