neurons from the cells. She said
the Center would have immediately
obtained more stem cell lines if Bush
did not veto the bill.
Most scientists agree that it will take
a breakthrough in research to change
United States policy.
"Once people with spinal cord inju-
ries or multipleesclerosis can be cured by
stem cells, it will make a huge difference
and open the door for more research,"
She also said that if these advance-
ments are discovered in a private lab
instead of federal institute, the therapies
will take longer to reach the public.
"It's not a matter of if (embryonic
stem cell research funding) will
pass, it's when," Morrison said.

from the skyboxes. No University
funds will be diverted, Martin said in
The speakers also expressed anger that
the project was added to the May agenda
atthe lastrminute afterthe comment regis-
tration deadline had passed.
Regent Olivia Maynard (D-Goodrich)
told the Daily in May that the proposal
was added to the agenda the day before
the meeting because information regard-
ing the renovations was leaked to Detroit
Free Press columnist Michael Rosenberg.
This past June, Save the Big House
founder John Pollack petitioned the
University for information on the
project through a Freedom of Infor-
mation Act request.
The FOIA gives any person the right
to request public documents and records,
and as a public institution, the University
is subject to these regulations.
In his letter, Pollack asked for "any
and all documents drafted, developed,
received, reviewed by or circulated among
University of Michigan administrators
and/or members of its Board of Regents in
relation to potential renovations to Michi-
Pollack limited the request to docu-
ments produced after the fall of 2000
- when Martin became athletic director.
The University's FOIA office esti-
mated that completing the request
will cost $9,884.
Peterson said the cost is high because
of the time required for staff and adminis-
trators to locate and filter the documents.
Regent Laurence Deitch (D-Bingham
Farms), who voted against the plans, along
with Katherine White (D-Ann Arbor)
and Rebecca McGowan (D-Ann Arbor),
has proposed a skybox-free alternative
plan that he estimates would cost between
$55 and $60 million.
In his podcast, Martin said the sky-
boxes are necessary to make the project
"All of the improvements we want to
make to the bowl itself, we do not see
that they are possible without building the
enclosed seating,"he said.
Martin said the renovations will
benefit all fans.
"The hole that Yost dug is 79 years
old today and in need of an awful lot of
improvements," he said in the podcast.
No price has been determined for the

ited requests, but about 50 fans - mostly
alumni - have already requested suites.

push for divestment in the fall.
The Muslim Students' Associa-
tion has signed a resolution created by
SAFE in support of divestment.
This past March, about 140 faculty
and students petitioned the University's
Board of Regents to cut all financial
ties with Israel.
At that time, Regent Laurence Deitch
(D-Bingham Farms) told the Daily the
board would never support divestment.
Deitch said many regents question
whether divestment is an appropri-
ate action for a university to take,
even in extreme cases, because it
opposes the board's goal of encour-
The University last divested from
the tobacco industry in 2000.
Locally, the rally was sponsored
by the Muslim Students' Associa-
tion, SAFE, the Michigan Congress
of Arab American Organizations and
the Muslim Community Association
of Ann Arbor and Vicinity. Several
Toledo-based groups also sponsored
Abdelfadeel said the event was also
heavily publicized throughout Dear-
born's Muslim community.
She said that although she expect-
ed more supporters from out of town,
she was impressed by the number
of Ann Arbor community members
This past Tuesday, a similar Dear-
born rally attracted nearly 10,000
Israel supporters have also been
vocal in the metro Detroit area. In a
demonstration of solidarity with Israel
last Wednesday, several thousand peo-
ple filled a synagogue in Southfield.
