rising concern voiced by students.
"We have had a number of meetings
addressing the issue and other concerns
that people may have," Jolley said. "The
allegations of an institutional racism at
the university are going way overboard.
"Whether or not there was any racial
motivation involved in Johnson's arrest
is being looked at," said Jolley, who is
black. "Personally, I believe that the
police officers are doing their job, and
what happens is sometimes misrepre-
sented. A police officer went into a vola-
tile situation and tried to gain control."

John McAuliffe, director of EMU's
campus police, would not comment on
the case because it is currently in
progress and under investigation.
Vick said the administration is put-
ting a concerted effort into learning
what happened during the Nov. 7 inci-
dent. He said that students may be jump-
ing to conclusions about it being either
a racial issue or a police brutality issue.
"Students on our campus have de-
scribed it as police brutality," Vick said.
"When an officer is white and the stu-
dents are black, there is the propensity
for the issue of race to come up."

meeting on a matter of policy, weighted
with everything else - would that be
the thing that tipped the scale? My
guess is no."
Mary Rave, chair of the American
Civil Liberties Union's Washtenaw
County branch, said although Duderstadt
underscored the importance of the ac-
creditation, the new Code does not even
reflect qualities mentioned in the report.
"The code that the accreditation re-
port refers to is a wholly different sort of
code than the code they passed," Rave
said. "(The code in the report) is one of

ethical practices,not illegal practices."
The recommendation in the report also
calls for a code covering "students, fac-
ulty, and staff," but the University's Code
is only extended to students, Rave noted.
Hartford said the University has not
considered such a broad code since
1990. "1 think that there was probably a
discussion of a code of that sort," she
said. "We don't have a universal code,
but most universities don't have a uni-
versal code."
The ACLU plans to discuss the ac-
creditation report at its meeting Sunday.
Rave said the organization will ask the
regents to re-consider adopting the Code
on the basis that they were misinformed.

Oregon: Mail-in state election a success
PORTLAND, Ore. - Even before the votes were counted yesterday in-the
nation's first mail-in congressional election, officials declared a winner: thestat
Voter turnout was up and the state saved more than $1 million by trading the
ballot box for the mailbox in primary elections for the seat of Sen. Bob Packwoe4,
the Republican who resigned in a sex scandal.
About 1.5 million ballots were sent out three weeks ago. By Monday night, 52
percent of the ballots had been returned to election officials. That compares witi
43.3 percent of voters who took part in Oregon primaries last year.
Secretary of State Phil Keisling estimated the election will cost between S.k
million and $1.8 million, about half the cost of having voters go to the polls.
"Oregonians are making vote-by-mail a success," said Keisling, who proposed
mail-in ballots. "This reflects their commitment to elections with high integrity
and high turnout."
Fivermajor contenders were vying for Oregon's first open Senate seat in nearly
30 years.
On the Democratic side, Reps. Ron Wyden and Peter DeFazio waged a tough
fight for their party's nomination.
In the GOP race, Oregon Senate President Gordon Smith faced state Schoo
Superintendent Norma Paulus and state Labor Commissioner Jack Roberts.

Govt. identifies
retailers who sell
sweatshop goods
WASHINGTON - While there
could be big profits in selling sweat-
shop-made apparel, some retailers are
trying to eradicate such workplaces,
and they got a boost yesterday when the
government publicly identified them.
A consumer group is urging holiday
shoppers to patronize these stores, but
retail trade associations say the list ex-
cludes many companies that should have
been mentioned, including some of the
nation's largest and best-known retailers.
The Labor Department's Fair Labor
Trendsetters list named 31 retailers ac-
tively working to ensure the clothing
they sell is made in shops complying
with federal wage and hour laws.
The list included retailers from
Abercrombie & Fitch to Victoria's Se-
cret. Absent, however, were many major
retailers, including J.C. Penney, Kmart,
Montgomery Ward and Sears Roebuck.
Many of the companies not included
have signed the National Retail
Federation's Statement of Principles

committing them to "legal complianc
and ethical business practices" in tb
apparel industry.
