By MARTIN FACKLER OF THE ASSSOCIATED PRESS BEIJING (AP) China on Wednesday said it would release the 24 detained crew members of a U.S. spy plane it has held for 1 1 days, but indicated it would hold the plane pending further talks. The end to the dramatic superpower stalemate came after President Bush sent China a letter saying the United States is "vvery sorry" for the plane's unauthorized landing and the death of a Chinese pilot. Foreign Minister Tang Jiaxuan said the crew would be released "on humanitarian grounds" as soon as "appropriate travel procedures" were completed. A senior Bush administration official said the White House expected the crew to be released late Wednesday, noting that it would take several hours to get a U.S. plane to China's Hainan island, the crew boarded and aircraft fueled. "It won't be long," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Sun Yuxi said. "The procedures are already under way." He added that "the Chinese side has all rights to conduct comprehensive investigation into the foreign reconnaissance plane." At the Pentagon, officials speaking on condition of anonymity said arrangements were in place for a commercial U.S. airliner to fly from the Pacific island of Guam to pick up the 24 Americans on Hainan and fly them to Hawaii after a brief stopover at Guam. The welcoming ceremony for the crew is likely to be held at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station in Washington state later this week, the officials said. The crew of the high-tech EP-3E U.S. Navy surveillance plane has been held on Hainan since April 1. The plane made an emergency landing there after an in-flight collision with a Chinese fighter jet. The Chinese pilot is missing and presumed dead. China had demanded an apology. The letter U.S. Ambassador Joseph Prueher delivered Wednesday afternoon to the Chinese Foreign Ministry twice used the words "very sorry." The letter appeared to be a complex linguistic compromise worked out dur ing days of arduous negotiations to satisfy China's demand for a formal apology while also accommodating Bush's refusal to offer one for what his government believed to be an accident. Immediately after the letter's release, though, Chinese translations of its wording differed. Sun, the Foreign Ministry spokesman, said the letter expressed "shenbiao qianyi" translated as deep apology or regret but he was not reading directly from the text as he spoke. A copy of the Chinese-language letter released by the U.S. Embassy didn't use the same term, saying instead that Bush expressed "feichang wanxi" extreme sympathy to the Chinese people and the family of the missing pilot. It also says Bush was "feichang baoqian" extremely sorry that the U.S. Navy plane landed without permission.

China still wants a full, formal apology. A king is crowned By JAMES EASTON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF "Oh, Mandy," was it a "Sunshine Day" Wednesday night in the Ragan theater. Seven of UVSC's elite bachelors stopped behaving like animles for an evening and gathered together to entertain everybody with humor, song, dance, and downright idiocy. Everybody had a fantastically fun time, and nobody left the loser. The show started off with our very own Brittany Wiscombe playing Britney Spears with her backup dancers featuring the latest dance moves including bare (male) chests. The swimsuit competition started off with a bang, with Jared Moore showing off his wave, and then Jake Richards stripping down to his small tennis shorts and showing all of the ladies his well oiled body. Greg came out and got whacked on the behind with a piece of wood, a big green fish made its appearance (Drew) and Corm Hughes showed off his fig leaf. Matt Eastin got the swim wear idea mixed up and came out in a full wading pool with the help of two attractive friends, and then Tom finished it with his grass skirt. The most exciting part of the show, the talent portion, kicked off with Jared singing a song written with the help of Nathan Osmond about the zoobie love Continued pg. 9 see "Mr. uvsc V KEVIN KABUR.1ME COLLEGE IIMLS Jared, the new Mr. UVSC Is tackled by his runners up Jake and Matt Eastin lust after the announcement was made, Wednesday.

Mew housing to facilitate 13,000 ALAN HORNE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF With remarkable numbers of students at UVSC, which will exceed 22,000 this fall, housing is needed for thousands of these in-state and out-of-state students. In supply to this demand, housing plans for about 13,000 students are underway. Devin Durrant, a local landlord, is heading the operation. Plans for construction began almost a year ago. Various plots of land were considered, including a nearby 43-acre area. As neighboring areas became aware of the situation, local residents voiced their concern about the increased traffic and neighborhood impact of so many students living nearby. In response, the Orem City council agreed on making amendments to the proposed housing plans. Some amendments made were adding bicycle stalls to the plans, refiguring floor space, decreasing some landscaping requirements, tightening up architectural standards, and precisely calculating shuttling to and from UVSC. The biggest amendment, however, had to do with the way that building density and student population combine to form parking requirements. The commissioners created the term "occupancy unit" to define the amount of parking stalls on a per-person basis, rather than by bedroom. The suggested number is .8 stalls for every occupancy unit, with any living space of 90 square feet or less qualifying as one occupancy unit. "It's been a cumbersome process, but important. I think we've come up with some good amendments. I think developers will find this workable," said Ken Young, an Orem Continued pg. 3 "Housing" Net Spot THE HOTTEST SPOTS ON THE WEB: www.menshealth.com: Men's Health, the magazine, On-line viww.herspace.com: an on-line page for her www.veggietales.com: the web-site on the popular singing vegtables www.amused.com: centre for the easily amused www.slate.com: Political commentary of events of today www.bored.com: Bored?

All proceeds go to support and help those suffering from cancer. The American Cancer Society projected a 5.1-percent increase in female breast cancer in 2001, to 192,200. This, along with all the other types of cancers are accountable for high death rates in the United States. In 2000, the American Cancer Society reported 40,200 deaths from breast cancer alone. But, there are many things being done to prevent and cure cancer. Insideout, a six-member group have been really great sports to hold this concert. They got their start at BYU, and hope to put on a great show that will impress the young and old alike. Paul Hatch, Ben Haacke, Layne Haacke, Kimball Brown, Ryan Hinton, and Jason Smith are the members of this delightful group. The group has performed all over Utah Valley, as well as on television. They are also scheduled to perform at the Freedom Festival banquet in July. They are great audience pleasers and were even voted Audience Favorite at the Regional Harmony Sweepstakes, which recently took place in Colorado. All are invited to come out and share an evening with them at Pleasant Grove High School today at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 for adults, and $5 for children, and tickets can be purchased at the door.
