Teaching assistants ordered to open
letters for their professors should do so
with caution - the mail may contain
more than a million dollar offer from
Ed McMahon.
In the past three weeks, there have
been two mail-bomb explosions in-
volving professors from Yale Univer-
sity and the University of California -
San Francisco (UCSF).
The Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion (FBI) said these explosions may
be linked to a seriesof other bombings
dating back to 1978 - including one
that injured Nicklaus Suino, an aide to
James McConnell, a then-University
psychology professor.
The bomb suspect is referred to as
"the Unibomber" by the FBI - be-
cause the bomber has a patters of at-
tacks on university professors. A com-
puter scientist was victimized in the
Yale incident, while a nationally-re-
nowned geneticist was the target at
TheFBIissued an alert through the
University Regional Network inform-
ing universities nationwide of the pos-
sibility of future bomb attacks.
"We don't want to start a panic,"
FBI Agent Rick Smith said. "Caution

is the operative word."
Smith confirmed the possible ex-
istence of a link between the bombings
at Yale and UCSF and the 1985 inci-
dent at the University.
"There is the possibility that there
is a connection between the recent
bombings and the older ones," he said.
Lisa Baker, the University's direc-
torof public affairs, said the University
is aware of the danger of additional
bomb attacks, but she said another
attack is not expected.
"We have no reason to believe the
University is a target," she said. "But,
we are concerned withthe safety ofour
faculty, employees and students."
Baker added that all University
employeeshave beennotifiedtoreport
any suspicious mail packages to DPS.
Lt. James Smiley of the Depart-
ment of Public Safety (DPS) said the
University is aware of a resurgence in
the bombings, but he refused to com-
ment on what steps DPS is taking to
prevent another attack.
we are doing," he said. "That would
compromise our intelligence system."
Smiley added his department is
working withvariousdepartmentheads
through the University to address is-
sues related to future bomb attacks.

like the rock," he said, "but, it was
nothing like the great mounted effort
we're seeing now."
The University has had no formal
involvement in the issue, but efforts
have been made in the pastto increase
student maintenance of the rock.
"We've sent communications to
the Panhellenic Association concern-
ing clean-up of the area," he said. "It
never really resulted in much."

Matt Ludwa, an engineering se-
nior, said the area would be abused,
regardless of the rock s presence.
"It's inan area right by fratrow,"he
said. "You would still get vandalism
whether or not the rock was here."
One of the rock's neighbors, John
Gale, said he was aware of vandalism
to the area, but that he does not care.
