with a third. I teach in the Eng-

I also have a substantial pres-
ence in the Frankel Center for

really is of three kinds. I teach
books and movies in all three.
In English I tend to focus
largely on the literature of the
late 19th, early 20th centuries,
although I also get to teach a
Hitchcock course, which is a lot

In American Culture and Jew-

I feel about my classes the way

No, I'm taking my son for a

hygiene before flu season students waiting for answers

Efficacy of current
flu vaccine so
far uncertain
By ANASTASSIOS
ADAMOPOLOUS
Daily Staff Reporter
Fall is here. And while the
change of season signals the
arrival of colorful leaves and
pumpkin carving, it also signi-
fies the beginning of something
many prefer to avoid: flu season.
Dr. Robert Winfield, the
University's Chief Health Offi-
cer and Director of University
Health Service, said while the
University is planning to pro-
mote vaccination a bit more than
usual, the fact that there has not
yet been an outbreak of cases
actually poses challenges for
potential prevention measures.
"The influenza season has not
yet begun," Winfield said. "So
we do not know the strain of flu
U-M

we will be seeing this fall, and
we don't know if there is a good
match with the vaccine with the
circulating virus because there is
no circulating virus yet."
According to the Michigan
Department of Community
Health, a total of three people
have been hospitalized due to
influenza so far this flu season.
Winfield said the University is
currently focused on preparing
for the unlikely scenario that an
Ebola patient is diagnosed at the
University or arrives for treat-
ment at the University Hospital.
The University Health System
has already initiated practice
drills, purchased new equipment
and redesigned telephone proto-
cols to better indicate whether
the patient has been in contact
with someone with Ebola or has
been in countries such as Libe-
ria, Sierra Leone and New Guin-
ea in the last 21 days.
"Part of the conversation is
how to protect the community,
and how to make sure the health
H-i

care workers don't get contami-
nated and that other patients in
the hospital don't get contami-
nated" Winfield said.
Peter Logan, director of com-
munications for University
Housing, said he has no knowl-
edge of new measures for flu
prevention, and added that Uni-
versity Health Service would
direct Housing to adopt any
new measures they recommend.
In recent years, Logan said the
University has worked to inform
students about how to protect
themselves from influenza and
what to do if they get it.
While the most common
strain during flu season, influ-
enza A, can be treated with the
medicine Tamiflu, Winfield said
the most effective preventative
strategy is for people to keep
their hands clean.
Logan said Housing has sev-
eral initiatives in place for stu-
dents who do become ill. Feel
Better Meals allows a friend or
Residential Adviser to pick up
and deliver specially prepared
meals for sick students.
In 2010, the University was
the first college in the country
to introduce liquid ozone as a
cleaner in South Quad Residence
Hall, and the substance has since
been used in most residence
halls as well as in the Michigan
Union and Michigan League.
Ozone cleaners are stronger
and begin working more quickly
than other types of sanitizers.
"Obviously one of the key
messages we encourage our resi-
dents to follow is that if they do
get sick, we really advise them to
stay in bed, ride it out, get well,"
Logan said. "Don't take your ill-
ness, don't take your germs into
the community and into the
classrooms."

Three students
dead after series of
attacks by police
TIXTLA, Mexico (AP) -
Night is the most difficult time at
the rural teachers college, where
families have stayed on thin,
bare mattresses in classrooms
since 43 students went missing a
month ago. The day's distractions
of meals, meetings and marches
end, and the parents are left with
their thoughts, questions and a
simmering rage.
Sleep has eluded Clemente
Rodriguez Moreno, 46, since his
19-year-old son Christian dis-
appeared with his classmates.
Each night Rodriguez returns to
his home close to the Raul Isidro
Burgos school in Tixtla and his
mind races.
"What will come of them? We
don't know if he's eating, if he's
injured, if they're hitting him."
The families' lives have been
upended since police in the town
of Iguala, allegedly on the may-
or's orders, attacked the students
to stop them from interrupting
a speech by the mayor's wife on
Sept. 26. Both the mayor and his
wife are fugitives, along with the
police chief.
Three students, including one
later found with the skin peeled
off his face, and three people
unrelated to the attack, died in a
series of initial attacks.
Investigators say the rest of
the students were driven off to a
police station, later turned over
to the drug gang Guerreros Uni-
dos and have not been heard from
since.
Everything since has been a
nightmare, said a 57-year-old
farmer from Ayutla who spoke.
on condition of anonymity as a
precaution against reprisals. He
walks his 19-year-old son's cam-
pus in the Ayotzinapa neighbor-
hood in a daze.
"I don'tsleep for thethinking,"
he said, fingering a foil packet of
sleeping pills prescribed by a
doctor who came by to help. "I

don't feel like I'm living life."
His family has few resources,
he said, and his son came to the
school because the students sup-
port themselves. That's what he
said they were doing that after-
noon in Iguala, soliciting dona-
tions.
Staring at the photograph of
his son after a march to demand
the return of the missing, the
farmer spoke one moment of
the anguish of not knowing. His
eyes welled with tears and he
bit his lower lip. Next flashed an
anger that has been building over
weeks. He said he's tired of a cor-
rupt government that has always
scorned poor farmers. He wants
the guilty to pay.
"If they don't give them to us,
we'll have to proceed another
way, with more resistance," he
said.
There was so much confusion
in those early days, said Valen-
tin Cornelio Gonzalez, a 30-year
old farmer from the municipal-
ity of Tecoanapa who dropped
everything to travel to the
school, where his brother-in-law,
19-year-old Abel Garcia Hernan-
dez, is enrolled. Was the attack
at the school or in Iguala? Were
the attackers police or cartel gun-
men? How many students were
missing?
Some gaps have since been
filled, but the gaping one, the
one families care most about,
remains a void, despite the arrest
and interrogation of 56 suspects
so far.
As of last week, authorities had
located 38 sets of remains and 11
mass graves in Iguala without
linking any to the students. On
Monday, investigators were dig-
ging again in nearby Cocula and
found more remains after the
confessions of four new detain-
ees.
As of Monday afternoon, the
families had not been informed
about the discovery, which only
adds to the growing frustration.
"A lot of time has passed and
still there's nothing," Gonzalez
said.
So, clad in well-worn leather

sandals, he has been marching -
in the state capital of Chilpancin-
go, in Acapulco, in Mexico City
- demanding an answer. When
he first arrived at the school he
and other relatives spent a fruit-
less day searching around Igua'-
la. They feared for their safety,
but fault the government for not
doing enough: "They're not look
ing forthem like they should."
Mario Cesar Gonzalez, 49, the
father of 21-year-old Cesar Man-
uel Gonzalez Hernandez, spends
his days at the school pacing in
cowboy boots. He's boiling too
much inside to sit for a massage
or take lessons in meditation
techniques offered by others
who want to help. He can't stand
with the other parents before
the makeshift altar in the middle
of the school's basketball court to,
sing a hymn. One minute he's lis-
tening in a small circle of parents
on the basketball court and the
next he's walking away, his ceOl
phone held tight to one ear and a
cigarette between his fingers.
He's so proud of his son. Even
after weeks without news of
their whereabouts, Gonzalez and
other parents unfailingly speak
of their children in the present
tense. Cesar wantsto fight forthe
poor, he said.
Cesar told his mother he
would help her so she could leave
the department store job that
exhausts her.
The young man doesn't know
that after a month of living at his
school and waiting for his return,
his mother has lost her job. So has
his father, who worked at a body
shop in Huamantla.
"That doesn't matter to me
anymore," Gonzalez said.
Clemente Rodriguez left his
chickens, geese and pigs, as well*
his work delivering water jugs,
to spend four days last week in
Mexico City collecting donations
for the school, marching and tell-
ing his story over and over
Sporting cowboy boots and an
Angry Birds baseball cap, Rodri-O
guez boasted that his son stands
over six feet tall and loves to folk
dance.
