Two WNS TO QO
a a By Kyle O'Neil
{ ' F DailyStaffReporter
After watching Patrick Roy skate off the ice
halfway through game seven of the Western Con-
ference Finals, many fans thought the Stanley Cup
was in the bag for the Detroit Red Wings.
The Wings are two wins away from their third
Stanley Cup in the past six years, but it has not
been the cakewalk many media personnel and fans
- said they believed it would be against the Carolina
Hurricanes, who are making their first Stanley Cup
appearance.
After Detroit's Saturday night 3-2 triple overtime
victory to take a 2-1 lead in the series, the Red Wings'
faithful say they are expecting the Hall of Famers to
reclaim the dominance that they said has been apparent
in the first two games and have the series wrapped up
k by game five in Detroit Thursday.
"I think right off the bat the Red Wings went
- (into this series) and were like, 'we're awesome
and we can win this without really throwing every-
Ro thing into it,"' Engineering junior Jakob Buikema
f*_said. "Carolina had nothing to lose in the begin-
ning. Now, the series should be done. Two more
games and win at home."

New Era, workers settle contract,

agreement won't affect 'U' stance

By Jennifer MistialM
Daily Staff Reporter

News of a tentative agreement between New
Era Cap Co. and its workers in Derby, N.Y., who
have been campaigning for almost a year to
improve factory conditions, probably will not
influence the University's decision to resume its
contract with the collegiate apparel manufacturer,
said Committee on Labor Standards on Human
Rights chair Larry Root.
Until April, New Era was one of 500 licensees
contracted to manufacture University apparel, Root
said. The University chose to terminate its contract
after a 90-day process when the company gave
unsatisfactory responses to allegations about viola-

tions of labor standards and let charges go unan-
swered, he said.
Despite news of the future contract ratification
and that workers are going back to work July 1,
Root said the University has no plans to reconsider
its decision. "There have been no changes in the
committee's recommendation on New Era," Root
said. "If there is new information or changes in the
New Era situation that the committee may feels are
germane to our recommendation, the committee
may re-visit this issue."
He added that current discussion and possible
agreements between workers and New Era are use-
ful, but unless the labor standard violation allega-
tions are directly addressed, he does not foresee any
