Fire erupts at 'U' power plant

60 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK
(MARCH 12,1953)
The University's Board of
Governors of Residence Halls
hiked room and board rates for
the fall semester of 1953.
The Daily didn't disclose how
much the costs were raised,
but a board member said it was
"essentially just a question of
coping with increased prices."
The action marked the sec-
ond time in the past year that an
increase was voted on without
resident input.

the controversial "Fort Wayne
skeleton" to the state Commis-
sion on Indian Affairs.
Several local Native Ameri-
can groups claimed the ancient
skeleton belonged to them, but
the University claimed the arti-
fact was found as a result of
erosion or construction. Allan
Smith, vice president of aca-
demic affairs, told the Daily,
"We do not rob graves."
Controversy over the bones
brewed after about 30 local
Native Americans interrupted
a meeting of the University's
Board of Regents, insisting that
the bones be removed from
the University's anthropology

20 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK
(MARCH 11, 1993)
A short-circuit in an electri-
cal extension cord caused a fire
at a University Power Plant.
The fire - originally thought
to be the result of arson -
caused $7,000 in damages.
The fire warranted a six-
engine response from the fire
department as well as at least
four police cruisers from the
University's Department of
Public Safety.
"Today was Pete's 50th birth-
day," plant engineer Mike Pep-
per told the Daily. "That's a hell
of a birthday cake."
