"Charging a user fee really isn't a solution." Starner said. "We think the collection process could create problems. But we do think the service serves a needed function. 'We'll see where we are at the end of the semester, how many people it has helped, and evaluate it from there." James Hill, vice president for Student Affairs, had re- i crvations about the program in the past, but now thinks the service should be a success. "I've had reservations about just liow far a program like this should go." Hills said. "I'm concerned about to what extent a university should become involved in legal matters of students. ♦See "Service"—page 12 Birthday drinks illegal but law not enforced by PAMELA BEERS LIFEStaff Writcrand PAUL MASON LIFE Ass't.
