Michigamua faced scrutiny

TUNE IN

Thirty-eight years ago this
week (September 28,1976)
Amy Blumenthal, Michigan.
Student Assembly vice presi-
dent, and former MSA member
Anita Tanay filed a complaint
of sex discrimination against
University honor society Mich-
igamua, now- known as the
Order of Angell, under Title IX.
Title IX is a federal statute
which governs sex discrimina-
tion in universities and other
institutions that receive fed-
eral funding. Blumenthal and
Tanay's complaint alleged that
Michigamua received preferen-
tial treatment from the Univer-
sity for information about jobs,
tickets to sporting events and

It's still early, but the No.

The Wolverines outpaced the

Daily masthead
BY THE MICHIGAN DAILY
In honor of the Daily's
125th year, we have updated
our masthead. But this
doesn't tell the whole story.
Despite the paper's efforts
to uphold tradition, our
masthead has been far from
consistent in recent years, a
disparity we hope to rectify
moving into the next 125
years of editorial freedom.

use of space, despite not being
a recognized student organiza-
tion. It also pointed to the fact
that Michigamua was all male at
the time.
"Michigamua does not violate
Title IX because Title IX has no
applications to Michigamua -
Michigamua receives no federal
funds," said John Feldkamp,
director of housing and Mich-
igamua's unofficial adviser, in
response to the allegation..
Thirty years ago this week
(October 2,1984)
Then-University president
Harold Shapiro and Engineer-
ing Prof. George Haddad were
added to a list of subpoenaed

officials in a case filed by the
Progressive Student Network
over the arrest of 11 of their
members, all students at the
University, at a sit-in the pre-
vious fall to protest alleged
military research in Haddad's
laboratory.
Donald Koster, defense attor-
ney for the students, said he
also planned to subpoena sev-
eral other individuals before
the November trial, though he
declined to name them.
Shapiro and Haddad both told
The Michigan Daily they knew
nothing about the subpoenas at
the time of publication.

WEATHERFEST
From Page 1A
Limnology and Ecosystems
Research, the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administra-
tion - which includes with the
Great Lakes Environmental
Research Lab - the Michigan
Solar Car Team and the National
Weather Service of Detroit/Pon-
tiac.
Rackham student David Ben-
son-Putnins said he came to
WeatherFest to recruit students
for the Solar Car Team. The team
recruits members studying in
the Department of Atmospher-
ic, Oceanic and Space Sciences
because they are equipped with
a background in meteorology
and can help predict the weather
for a five-day race.
"How fast the battery empties
depends on how fast we drive
and how much solar radiation we
get," he said.
Each booth offered a different
perspective on meteorology.
Engineering graduate stu-

dent Nathan Boll represented
the Cyclone Global Navigation
Satellite System project on cam-
pus. Boll, a NASA ambassador
involved in science education
and outreach for NASA pro-
grams, said CYGNSS is "record-
ing GPS signals reflected off the
surface of the ocean that will tell
us about the wind speed inside of
tropical storms from space."
"Part of this public outreach-
activity is to educate people
about the opportunities for
research that are going on here
at the University of Michigan
and the surrounding area, but
also the impacts of NASA sci-
ence on our local community,"
Boll added.
Boll said the data collected
from CYGNSS would allow
researchers to build better
computer models to predict the
path and strength of hurricanes
before they make landfall. Such
technology could help keep peo-
ple safe by providing more accu-
rate weather warnings.
University alum Andrea
Reynolds, outreach workshops
manager for the Ann Arbor

Hands-On Museum, explained
the function of the infrared cam-
era at her booth.
The camera highlighted
the coolest and hottest places
on your body. She said meteo-
rologists use these cameras in
weather satellites to find out
"where storms are ... and how
high clouds are in the atmo-
sphere."
University alum Rich Poll-
man, the warning coordination
meteorologist at the National
Weather Service of Detroit/Pon-
tiac, said he came to WeatherFest
to support AOSS and to teach
people "how to be prepared for
severe weather and how to get a
hold of that weather information
so that they can act in times of
emergencies."
Pollman, a graduate of the
AOSS class of 1992, said he
enjoyed speaking with members
of the AOSS department about
what it is like to work for the
National Weather Service.
"It's always fun to come back
here and help out the old depart-
ment and see the new students
that are here."

"These senators are the ones
deciding whether this bill is
going to pass or not," Shaw-Oba-
sogie said. "They have the say
whether these 50 million people
will have electricity or not. By
meeting the Senate I really feel
like I did contribute."
Both Shaw-Obasogie and
Dickinson became involved in

fall on campus last year. They
hope to continue their efforts on

Health-resources
increasingly
strained in west
African country
MONROVIA, Liberia (AP)
- Doctors are in short supply.
So are beds for patients. Six
months after the Ebola outbreak
emerged for the first time in an
unprepared West Africa and
eventually became the worst-
ever outbreak, the gap between
what has been sent by other
countries and private groups
and what is needed is huge.
Even as countries try to
marshal more resources, those
needs threaten to become much
greater, and possibly even insur-
mountable.
Fourteen-year-old D.J. Mul-
bah was taken by his mother
and grandmother on Saturday
in desperate pursuit of a cov-
eted bed at the Ebola clinic run
by Doctors Without Borders in
Monrovia, Liberia's capital. Too
weak to stand, he was put into
a taxi with his backpack and a
bucket for vomit. Now he lay
on the dirt beside the worried
women.
"He's been sick for a week
with a runny stomach," said his

mother, wiping the sweat off the
boy's brow with her bare hands.
"We tried calling an ambulance
days ago but nobody ever came.".
Beds are filling up as fast as
clinics can be built. Ambulance
sirens blare through standstill
traffic. Often there is nowhere to
take the sick except to "holding
centers" where they await a bed
at an Ebola treatment facility.
By 8 a.m. a dozen people who
likely have Ebola are crouch-
ing and sitting on the ground
outside the padlocked metal
gates of a facility with a capac-
ity of 160 patients. Soon a tri-
age nurse approaches, her voice
muffled through a surgical mask
covered by a plastic face shield.
The clinic will take the boy. D.J.
manages a faint smile. Seven of
the 30 beds made available Sat-
urday morning were vacated by
survivors. The rest had died.
Statistics reviewed by The
Associated Press and- inter-
views with experts and those
on the scene of one of the worst
health disasters in modern his-
tory show how great the needs
are and how little the world has
done in response. Some foreign
medical workers have bravely
fought on, a few even contract-
ing Ebola themselves as they
cared for patients. Experts warn
that the window of opportunity

yfillas
reign ai
to snuff out the dreaded disease
may close unless promises of
additional assistance immedi-
ately become reality.
The existing bed capacity for
Ebola patients in Liberia, Sierra
Leone and Guinea and Nigeria
is about 820, well short of the
2,900 beds that are currently
needed, according to the World
Health Organization. Recently
737 beds were pledged by coun-
tries. Yet even after the prom-
ised treatment facilities are
built, they will still be at least
2,100 beds short.
The shortage of health work-
ers is also great. WHO has
estimated that 1,000 to 2,000
international health workers
are needed in West Africa. More
than local 200 health workers
have died of Ebola trying to save
patients, complicating recruit-
ment efforts.
Doctors Without Borders,
which has more Ebola clin-
ics than anyone, currently has
248 foreign aid workers in the
region.
President Barack Obama has
ordered up to 3,000 U.S. mili-
tary personnel to West Africa to
train health workers and build
more than a dozen 100-bed field
hospitals, including reserved
sections for infected aid work-
ers in Liberia.
