"It a tree tails In the forest and no one Is around to hear IL" -by Chad Keys Photo by Matt Brown Bush presses for human cloning ban By Scott Undlaw Ap Writer President Bush called on the . Senate Wednesday to pass legislation banning all human cloning, including the cloning of embryos for research and treatment of diseases. "Life is creation, not a commodity," Bush said in a speech to 175 doctors, scientists, lawmakers, religious activists and disabled people. "Advances in new biotechnology must never come at the expense of human conscience," he said. "As we seek what is possible, we must always ask what is right, and we must not forget that even the most noble ends do not justify any means." Bush spoke up in order to urge the Senate to pass a broad ban on cloning. The House in July passed a ban on all human cloning the production of embryos that are the genetic twin of a donor. Many in the Senate oppose using cloning to create human beings, but support using the process to create embryonic stem cells that may be used for research and the potential treatment of many diseases. "It would be a mistake for the U.S. Senate to allow any kind of human cloning to come out of that chamber," Bush said. Anything short of a full ban is unethical, Bush said, and would be nearly impossible to enforce. Moreover, the success of research that could stem from cloning is "highly speculative." Most Americans oppose cloning, said Bush, whose conservative base favors a ban. The cloning legislation joins a growing pile of bills that Bush favors and that have passed the Republican-controlled House but stalled in the Democratic-controlled Senate. In recent days Bush has stepped up calls for action on an array of bills pending in the Senate, including measures that would increase energy conservation and exploration, grant him expanded powers in negotiating trade pacts and help businesses get terrorism insurance. The use of embryonic stem cells is controversial because extracting the cells kills a living human embryo. Bush decided in August that federal funding would be permitted only for stem cell cultures that then existed and were made from embryos that were to be discarded by fertility clinics. Sen. Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said Tuesday he would support the cloning ban, which the Senate is expected to debate in the weeks ahead. Net Spot NewsPolitics: www.washing- tonpost.com.

Romesburg appointed Dr. Bradley Cook as the school's Vice President for Academics. Cook, who currently serves as Vice President for College Relations at UVSC, will assume his new position effective July 1, 2002. He is replacing Dr. Lucille Stoddard, who is retiring this year after a 31 -year career at UVSC. "Dr. Cook is a published, active scholar, an excellent teacher, and a proven administrator," Romesburg said. "I have no doubt about his ability to help continue moving our academic programs forward and providing the blend of career readiness and academic and personal development our students need and deserve." i In appointing a new vice president, college policy allows the president three different options, including: conducting a national search, conducting an in-house search, or appointing someone as a lateral transfer."I see no reason to spend the time, effort, and resources to conduct a national, or even an in- house, search, when I believe the best candidate is . available through appointment," Romesburg said. Cook completed a Bachelor's and Master's degree at Stanford University and received a doctorate in Middle Eastern Studies and Comparative Education from Oxford University. He has served in his current position since 1999. "I look forward to engaging with faculty and students in a way that will help UVSC meet the opportunities and challenges ahead and to continue making UVSC the dynamic and innovative place that it is," Cook said. "Dr: Stoddard, with all of her experience and strength of character, leaves behind a set of large shoes to fill. I have come to admire her clarity, intelligence, and intellectual honesty. One cannot easily separate the success of this insitution from Dr. Stoddard's leadership and vision. She will be missed."
