U' alumni join U.S.space team

50 years ago this week (Sep-
tember 18, 1962): Then-Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy selected
two University alumni, Edward
White and James McDivitt, to
become members of the U.S.
space team, the Daily reported.
The space team-which con-
sisted of just 16 individuals-was
created in an attempt to land a
man on the moon for the first
time in history.
Both McDivitt and White had
military flight training experi-
ence, and McDivitt flew 145 com-
bat missions in the Korean War,
according to the Daily.

All five Republicans opposed the

against the measure, fearing it

the Daily.
HRP members clarified the
law to enable offenders to mail

The system was similar to
that used by engineering stu-

requires students to enter a per-
sonally-selected ID followed by a
password, the Daily reported.

Trial of Chinese police chief
''-- --, at center of scandal continues

Wang Lijun charged
with corruption,
abuse of power
CHENGDU, China (AP) - A
once-prominent police chief at
the center of a divisive political
scandal stood trial for a second
day Tuesday as Chinese leaders
moved closer to resolving a case
that has complicated their trans-
fer of power to new leaders.
The Intermediate Court in
the central city of Chengdu
resumed the hearing for Wang
Lijun focusing on corruption and
other charges, and was expected
to end the trial later Tuesday.
The proceedings unexpectedly
opened a day early Monday with
an unannounced closed-door
hearing that Wang's lawyer
said involved state secrets and
explored charges of defecting
and abuse of power - allega-
tions related to his surprise visit
to the U.S. consulate in Chengdu
in February that triggered the
Police stationed around the
courthouse pulled tape across
the entrance and blocked and
rerouted traffic, in part to deter
spectators or people with griev-
ances against the government
or Wang. Police led away a cou-
ple and an older man who tried
to speak with foreign report-
ers, who were restricted to a
sidewalk across from the court
entrance. Unidentified men
filmed the reporters.
The trial was the latest wrin-
kle in the bizarre months-long
scandal that started with Wang's
flight to the consulate, where he
divulged that a British business-
man found dead in November
had been murdered. In the fall-
out, Wang's boss, senior politi-
cian Bo Xilai, was ousted from
the communist leadership, Bo's
wife confessed to the murder
and the Communist Party lead-
ership had to manage the dam-
age while trying to negotiate a
delicate power handover to a
younger generation.

Wang's trial clears the way for
the leadership to deal with the
scandal's stickiest issue: wheth-
er to expel Bo from the party
and prosecute him. Proof that
the damage-control continues to
vex Chinese leaders is that they
have yet to announce a date for a
party congress to install the new
leadership, though it is expected
in mid- to late October.
By using a closed-door hear-
ing, authorities could limit leaks
about Bo's involvement in the
cover-up of the murder of the
British businessman Neil Hey-
wood, an associate of the Bo
family, and about any outbursts
by Wang.
"Wang Lijun, by walking into
the U.S. consulate, showed that
he does not play by the book. It
was a surprise move to Bo and
to the party. He might not be as
easy to control," said Dali Yang,
director of the University of Chi-
cago Center in Beijing.
Wang's almost certain con-
viction marks the downfall of a
prominent, colorful police chief

who often skirted the law he
made a show of enforcing.
A policeman for more than
two decades, Wang made a name
for himself as a gang-buster in
a northeastern province. There
he met Bo, then a fast-rising
politician who, as the son of a
revolutionary veteran, had a web
of political contacts. The two
rode to national fame together,
launching a high-profile sweep
against organized crime in
Chongqing, an inland megacity
where Bo was named party chief
in 2007.
In magazine cover stories and
on television news, Wang was
depicted as someone willing to
tackle vested interests. Hun-
dreds of gangsters, police and
officials were prosecuted,'and
among the 13 people executed
was the head of the city's justice
bureau. Behind the headlines,
the use of torture to extract
confessions and arrests to pres-
sure businessmen to steer deals
toward Bo and his allies created
enemies at the highest levels.


Male cosmetics
sales expected to
top $885 million
this year
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -
Cho Won-hyuk stands in front of
his bedroom mirror and spreads
dollops of yellow-brown makeup
over his forehead, nose, chin and
cheeks until his skin is flawless.
Then he goes to work with ablack
pencil, highlighting his eyebrows
until they're thicker, bolder.
"Having a clean, neat face
makes you look sophisticated
and creates an image that you
can handle yourself well," the
24-year-old college student said.
"Your appearance matters, so
when I wear makeup on special
occasions, it makes me more
Cho's meticulous efforts
to paint the perfect face are
not unusual in South Korea.
This socially conservative,

male-dominated country, with
a mandatory two-year mili-
tary conscription for men, has
become the male makeup capital
of the world.
South Korean men spent
$495.5 million on skincare last
year, accounting for nearly 21
percent of global sales, accord-
ing to global market research
firm Euromonitor International.
That makes it the largest market
for men's skincare in the world,
even though there are only about
19 million men in South Korea.
Amorepacific, South Korea's
biggest cosmetics company, esti-
mates the total sales of men's cos-
metics in South Korea this year
will be more than $885 million.
The metamorphosis of South
Korean men from macho to
makeup over the last decade
or so can be partly explained
by fierce competition for jobs,
advancement and romance in
a society where, as a popular
catchphrase puts it, "appearance
is power." Women also have a
growing expectation that men

will take the time and effort to
pamper their skin.
Evidence of this new direc-
tion in South Korean masculin-
ity is easy to find. In a crowded
Seoul cafe, a young woman takes-
some lipstick out of her purse
and casually applies it to her
male companion's lips as they
talk. At an upscale apartment
building, a male security guard
watches the lobby from behind
a layer of makeup. Korean Air
holds annual male makeup class-
es for its staff at Incheon Inter-
national Airport.
"I can understand why girls
don't like to go outside without
makeup - it makes a big differ-
ence," said Cho Gil-nam, a tall,
stocky 27-year-old insurance
fraud investigator in Seoul who
starts important days by dab-
bing on makeup after finishing
his multistep morning cleans-
ing and moisturizing routine. He
carries a multicolored cosmet-
ics pouch so he can touch up in
public bathrooms throughout
the day.
