California last weekend and won
"big money" in the bonus round

an advertisement in the Daily, and

While in Florida over winter
break, Dominguez received a
phone call from her mother inform-
ing her that Wheel of Fortune offi-

"I was freaking out,"

fornia with her mother and arrived

day at 10 a.m. wearing the required
Dominguez said all five shows
of that week are filmed in one day,
one after the other.
All that week's contestants
were required to stay together to
prevent someone from "going off
and cheating. You spend the morn-
ing learning the rules of the game,
eating lunch, signing release
forms, practicing spinning the
wheel, and getting made up... we
could only talk to the other contes-
tants and the contestant coordina-
tors, and if we wanted to go any-
where, we had to have someone
escort us," she said.
The other contestants were
"older, most were nervous,"
Dominguez said, "The returning
champ, however, was very cocky...
but I won!"
"I felt very hyped up,"
Dominguez said of being on the
air. "It was a combination of ner-
vousness and fun."
"Vanna was not strikingly beau-
tiful, but she was cute and person-
able. Pat Sajak was weird -- he
had so much make-up on I felt like
he wasn't a real person," she said.

three to four months and, after 30
percent is taken off for taxes, she
will probably buy a car.
She had "about four minutes to
change" before appearing on the
next showing. "I was much more
relaxed and confident."
Although she won two rounds,
'Vanna was not strikingly beautiful, but she
was cute and personable. Pat Sajak was
weird - he had so much make-up on I felt
like he wasn't a real person'

The returning champion won
two rounds, the third .contestant
won one round, and Dominguez
won one round.
She declined to tell what the
final puzzle was or how much
money she won, but she said she
in the end Dominguez lost to an-
other contestant. "I wasn't sad at
all. I had already won once, so
whatever else I won was just a
bonus," she said.
The two shows will air Febru-
ary 25 and 26.

said. Harrison and Lees agreed
this would be a rare case.
"The VA will be the center,"
Harrison said. "If there are burn
patients, we have a couple peo-
ple on staff that can go over," he
Other preparations include
compiling information packets to
send to families of the potential
patients. Lees said the DOD may
not be able to send patients to
home towns. The VA hospital
has solicited special rates from
local hotels for these families.
To aid with the casualties,
some nurses will work on their
days off on a non-paid status.
The DOD gave the VA hospital
"Operation Desert Storm" clini-
cal video tapes which teach doc-
tors and nurses to treat biologi-
cal warfare wounds.
Only six members of the hos-
pital's Ready Reserve personnel
have been called into active
duty in the Persian Gulf, leaving

"Overall, we've been very
lucky," said Lees, adding that
some VA hospitals have had en-
tire departments called to duty.

A battalion-sized force of Iraqis
had taken over Khafji on Tuesday
night. The allies came calling about
24 hours later, when U.S. Marines
let loose with artillery fire and Saudi
and Qatari tanks and armored person-
nel carriers lumbered up to the town.
The battle lasted all night long.
The sky was lit by flares, tracer fire.
and bursts of weaponry. At one
point, U.S. Marines who had driven
TOW anti-tank missile launchers to
the periphery of the town were forced
to retreat under blistering crossfire.
Two US Marines take cover during Iraqi artillery attacks in Khafji, Saudi
Arabia yesterday. Fighting continues for control of the border town.

This decision met with opposi-
tion from those supporting both
sides of the issue. Native Ameri-
can students and other students of
color petitioned the regents to re-
place the logo. Manyathletes and
alumni resented the departure from
tradition that would be caused by
dropping the symbol.
"We will be in a transitional
phase during the next two to four
years. We'll continue to call our-
selves the Hurons until we have a
new name. We will begin to phase
out merchandise containing the
name 'Hurons' and the Indian logo.
When it is necessary for us to re-
order athletic uniforms, stationery,
and other things, the new ones will
be without the logo," she added.
The issue has been divisive
among EMU students.
"A lot of students are upset,"
said Geoff Rose, vice-president of
the EMU student body. "Many
wanted it changed and many
didn't. I'm just glad the whole
thing is over. It took too long. The
campus was kind of awkward
while the whole thing was going
Pamela Stewart, the student
government secretary, said, "No
one understands what an offensive
symbol it is. It would be like hav-
ing the EMU Negroes with the
logo being a map of Africa."
Jgohn Norlinger, associate ath-.
letia director, said, "There's a lot
of tradition behind the name and
the logo. People in the athletic de-
partment were upset."
There are plans to devise a new
logo and nickname for EMU but
the process by which they will be
chosen has not yet been deter-

"This University shares part of
the responsibility for the dispropor-
tionate number of people of color
in the military," she added. Stu-
dents, who would otherwise be un-
able to afford college, can con-
tinue their education through
ROTC scholarships, she added.
