UF students speak out on London bombings
By EMILY YEHLE
Alligator Staff Writer
LONDON UF junior Jessica Daugherty
sat in a hot classroom Thursday morning,
sweating over a business law exam, when she
heard a loud bang outside the open window.
"It sounded like bubble wrap, you know,
when you can't stop
International popping it," she said.
News "But it actually was a
bus blowing up."
Two blocks from
Daugherty's school, one of this city's famous
double-decker buses exploded with a full load
of passengers, leaving the red metal frame
looking like an opened can of tuna.
That morning, three other bombs deto-
nated at various places along the London
Underground. All told, the attacks injured
hundreds and killed at least 50.
But four days after the attacks, London
is almost back to normal. The Underground
trains and public buses continued most of
their routes Friday, less than 24 hours after
Trains continue to run past the closed
King's Cross station, where a nearby explo-
sion killed at least 21 people. The eerie pause
at the empty station is one of a few hints at the
"They just bounced back," Daugherty said.
"The devastation was horrible, but they just
immediately swooped in and cleaned it up
and did it really calmly."
About 40 students have been studying
since May at Huron University as part of a co-
operative effort with UF's business school, and
many have slipped back into their normal rou-
"It sounded like bubble wrap, you
know, when you can't stop pop-
ping it. But it actually was a bus
tine. Although all were shocked at the attacks,
some said their fear quickly diminished.
"Surprisingly, I don't think any of us were
afraid," UF junior Matt Flagler said. "I think a
lot of us were angry and wanted to tell our par-
ents we were OK, but none of us were fearful."
The stoicism of Londoners throughout the
attacks helped keep fear at bay, Daugherty
"They (Londoners) weren't panicked at
all," she said. "I sort of felt like a novice. I felt
like I could handle it."
Not all students took the attacks with the
same calmness. At a dorm a few blocks from
Huron, some New York University students
felt more stricken with panic. Students sat in
the lounge glued to the screen, while officials
strongly encouraged everyone to stay inside.
Those with first-hand memories of Sept. 11,
2001, immediately expected the worst.
"I was really nervous. My heart was
pounding," NYU student Maria Verbanac
said. "It reminded me of 9/11. I didn't know
how big of an attack it was."
One week before the Twin Towers fell,
Verbanac's father was moved from his office
there to a building across the street. Verbanac
was unaware of the move, and when news hit
her high school, she panicked.

THE PROCESS TO POLICE.

UF's Kappa Alpha Fraternity
chapter will be under scrutiny
this Fall after one of its newly in-
ducted members shared details
of the organization's hazing pro-
cedures with University Police.
William Travis Page, 22, was
questioned after his involvement
in a March 18 hazing incident
when new members were or-
dered to steal signs from local
Page discussed details of
the organization's hazing ritual
associated with the induction
process of new members. It in-
cluded physical training, such as
sit-ups, running and push-ups as
a form of punishment, as well as
cleaning the houses of fraternity
members and allowing chapter
members to paddle newly in-
ducted members with paddles
they were instructed to buy.
Page told police physical train-
ing occurred when new members
didn't complete an assigned task
or didn't know the names of cur-
rent Kappa Alpha members listed
in a "black book."
The training, which took place
on Flavet Field, involved ap-
proximately an hour and a half
of exercise when no liquids were
provided, and some new mem-
bers, including Page, vomited.
Page said he also was as-
signed three nights a week to
drive members of the fraternity
who had been drinking to and
from various locations.
Kappa Alpha President Dan
Boda said his chapter's hazing rit-
uals aren't what they once were.
"The momentum of hazing
in KA has been slowed down in
the past couple years," he said.
"This incident will put a firm
stop to it."

Beloved UF alumnus, former historian dead at 86
Samuel Proctor, one of UF's distinguished alumni, died
Sunday, closing the book on some of UF's history.
Proctor died in the early morning hours Sunday, after a long
and mysterious illness. He was 86.
Proctor was UF's first official historian and archivist and the
man who established UF's prolific Oral History Program.
"It is one of the luckiest of circumstances for me that I got to
know Sam," UF President Bernie Machen said.
Machen presented Proctor with an honorary Doctorate of
Public Service last summer to recognize his contributions to the
Proctor received a bachelor's degree in 1941, master's in
1942 and doctorate in 1958, all from UP.
The Oral History Program, which he started in 1967 and
is now named for him, was designed to preserve eyewitness
accounts of life in Florida and the South. The collection, which
has more than 3,900 interviews, is. one of the largest in the na-
Proctor retired from UF in June 1996 after teaching for 50
years. In that time he shared his vast knowledge of history with
many students, including former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham. \
He also published a history of UF called "Gator History: A
Pictorial History of the University of Florida" in 1986. It was
Proctor's research that determined UF's roots date to 1853.
Proctor is survived by his wife of 56 years, Bessie, two sons
and two granddaughters.

have to enter the tunnels soon.

Thursday evening. After a day of
hiding in dorms and classrooms,
many wanted to see how the British
were handling the tragedy.
The pubs were packed with

The day was more stressful for

emergency stairs, Bloom said she
never questioned the circumstances..

Hub may offer 24-hour cafe
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
When the Hub is resurrected fully in May
2006, it could include a 24-hour Internet caf6.
Partially closed since the UF bookstore
moved to the Reitz Union, the Hub, located at
Stadium Road and Buckman Drive, will cost
$11.5 million to renovate.
Its first floor will consist of a 10,000 square-
foot Internet cafe and a new home for the
International Center, now located in Grinter
Hall. The Academic Technology Center, which
includes the UF Computing Help Desk, also
will move its offices from the Computer
Sciences and Engineering building to the Hub
but keep existing business hours.
Though UF is financing the renovation,
Interim Associate Provost for Information
Technology Marc.Hoit said university officials
have agreed to keep the Internet caf6 open 24
hours only if Student Government will pay to
staff it beyond normal UF Computing Help
Late-night operation is expected to require
two staffers: a computer specialist and a student
employee. The funding of their wages will re-
quire a vote in the Student Senate.
Student Sen. Jason Lutin, chairman of the
24-Hour Study Committee, said SG officials and
students have shown consistent interest in a late-
night study center. A committee like his has been
formed in SG every year for five years, he said.
"Now, we're just a couple signa-
tures away from having a 24-hour

Lutin said in the past he has gotten "the run-
around" from UF administrators.
"Now," he said, "we're just. a couple signa-
tures away from having a 24-hour study center."
In addition to a large open area with a com-
puter lab, laser printers and the UF Computing
Help Desk, the Internet caf6 will include two
video-conference rooms, four or five small
study rooms, a video-editing area with editing
software and high-end graphics capability, and
either a Starbucks or a Java City, Hoit said.
SG officials plan to keep the area open 24
hours a day, seven days a week at first, Lutin
said, adding that the plan may change with how
often and when students use the facility.

Hurricane-resistant house stands up to Dennis
By DOUGLAS BONEPARTH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Hurricane Dennis may have huffed and
puffed, but it could not blow this house down.
Near the Escambia County extension in
Pensacola stands a structure simply dubbed
the "hurricane house," designed to withstand
winds in excess of 140 miles per hour.
The house, officially known as the Escambia
Windstorm Damage Mitigation, Training and
Demonstration Center, is a UF project to test if
homes cant be made more hurricane-resistant.
"Our hurricane house demonstrates that
it is possible to build a home that will come
through hurricanes such as Dennis and
Ivan with little or no damage," said Lamar
Christenberry, Escambia County extension
director with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, in a press release. .
He and his team have been studying how
materials, products and construction methods
that meet or exceed state standards can be used
in new homes or to retrofit existing structures.
"I don't think Dennis challenged it as
much as we had hoped," he said. "It wasn't
a Category 3 or 4, but we did get a good wind
test of about 100 mph."
In the press release, Pierce Jones, director of
the UF/IFAS Florida Energy Extension Service
said new building codes, which went in to ef-
fect March 2002, are stricter than before but not
as strict as those in Miami-Dade and Broward
Jones said because no Florida home is
impervious to hurricane damage, the codes
should become stricter statewide eventually.
The hurricane house near Pensacola is just
one of three hurricane houses around the state.
One house is located in Fort Pierce, another in
St. Augustine and a fourth will be complete in
August 2005 in Fort Lauderdale.
To pay for the project, the Florida
Department of Financial Services provided
$2.3 million in funding, while UF's Shimberg
Center for Affordable Housing in the College
of Design, Construction and Planning over-
looked the design and construction.
"Our hurricane house demon-
strates that it is possible to build a
home that will come through hur-
ricanes such as Dennis and Ivan
with little or no damage."
Escambia County IFAS extension director
Homeowners interested in the buildings
can visit the houses in the respective locations
to see the methods used in constructing hur-
Visitors will be able to see a variety of win-
dow shutters, impact-resistant doors, a steel
"safe room," a garage door capable of with-
standing 150 mph winds and exposed sections
of interior walls.
Jones said the walls' building method
is more expensive than regular concrete or
wood-frame construction but is desirable
where wind speeds are higher and storm-
surge problems are imminent.
"The insulated Styrofoam-formed concrete
walls add about 10 to 15 percent to cost, but
there is a pay back in energy in a few years,"
Hurricane Dennis, a fast-moving Category
3 hurricane.when it came ashore with 120 mph
winds, was smaller than Ivan and weaker than
when it churned through the Gulf of Mexico as
a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm.
Dennis became the fifth hurricane to strike
Florida in fewer than 11 months, causing an
estimated $1 billion to $2.5 billion in insured
damage in the United States.

UF technology helps Discovery's return to flight
* THE SHUTTLE IS EXPECTED
TO FLY AGAIN WEDNESDAY.
By RESHELLE SMITI.
Alligator Contributing Writer
Across from the stadium and
next to the journalism building in
a first-floor room no bigger than a
bathroom sit the hopes of NASA.
Technology developed in this
tiny UF lab will help ensure the
safety of the space shuttle Discovery,
scheduled to lift-off Wednesday.
Discovery marks the first shuttle
mission in more than two years'
since the Columbia tragedy of.,
Engineering professor Ed Dugan,
along with retired professor Alan
Jacobs and doctoral student Daniel
Shedlock, developed a way to scan
the foam on the external fuel tank of
the space shuttle for possible defects.
In the Columbia disaster, experts
believe a briefcase-size piece of foam
broke off the external fuel tank and
damaged tiles on the left wing,
While it's impossible to know
for certain whether or not the scan-
ning technique developed by the
UF team could have prevented the
disaster, NASA is now able to look
inside the foam for any cracks or
holes that could make the foam
more susceptible to breaking off.
NASA and Lockheed Martin,
the company that assembled the
fuel tank, attempted many different
scanning methods to get images of
the foam- core, including ultrasound
and electromagnetic scanning,

foam, however, each method failed
to create a proper image.
Lockheed came to UF after hear-
ing about the work Dugan and
Jacobs were doing with landmine
detection, Dugan said. They wanted
to know if UF's method could be ap-
plied to foam scanning.
Dugan developed a type of back-
scatter radiography for Lockheed
that creates an image by exposing
X-rays to an object
UF and collecting the
waves that bounce
back, or "scatter," from that object.
Only about 10 percent of all rays are
scattered back, which makes back-
scatter radiography very difficult to
use, Dugan said.
Dugan's scanner is composed
of four cylindrical detectors sur-
rounding a cylindrical yellow X-ray
generator. Each detector creates a
separate image, but the images also
can be combined to create one im-
age, Dugan said.
The scanner uses the same X-rays
used in a doctor's office. However, in
medical X-rays, the rays pass through
the body of a patient to register an
image on a screen behind them.
Because it's not always possible to
place a screen behind an object, the
backscatter method is beneficial.
UF's scanner can be adjusted to
select the best bounced-back X-rays,
resulting in a black-and-white image
dearer than any medical X-ray.
"If you told me two years ago we
could get images like that, I wouldn't
have believed it," Dugan said. :

are clearly visible. A shadowy white
area about the size of a silver dollar
can also be observed.
That, Shedlock said, is what
NASA and Lockheed are looking
for. A small, shadowy area indicates
a defect in the foam, and a defect
makes it easier for the foam to break
off. If a similar defect was detected
in the fuel-tank foam, Lockheed
technicians would cut the piece out
and start the foam application pro-
cess over again.
All of the foam on the external
tank is not scanned because most of
it is applied by a machine, Shedlock
said. But there are areas where a ma-
chine can't do the job, and the foam
is applied by hand, layer by layer.
These are the areas most susceptible
to foam flaws and the ones scanned
by UF technology.

Tragedies should cause
cities to rethink Games
As we stop to remember the 50-plus who lost their lives
by terrorists' bombs in London last week, we should not
forget that the city was cleared to host its first Olympic
games in six decades the day before.
Nor should we forget the plight of New Yorkers, whose
enthusiasm for their city's unsuccessful 2012 Olympic bid was
indicative of their eagerness to rebuild ever since they, too, un-
derwent unspeakable tragedy.
London, New York, Paris, Moscow, Madrid all major cit-
ies with hopes of hosting the Olympics, and all recent victims
An Athens police station was bombed three months before
last year's Summer Games. In 2000, a cooperative effort be-
tween Australia and New Zealand police foiled a bombing of
a nuclear reactor in the suburbs of Sydney, planned to go down
while the Games resided down under.
And everyone should remember an early Saturday morning
in July 1996, when a pipe bomb shattered Atlanta's brand-new
Centennial Park and the world's dreams of a 'safe' Olympics.
As major cities become more cosmopolitan, and therefore
more attractive to International Olympic Committee officials
seeking prestige for their signature events, they will also be-
come clearer targets for terrorists and other ne'er-do-wells.
Conclusion: The Olympics inadvertently carries with it an
expectation of violence; a culture, if you will.
Maybe it was a good thing New York was shut out.
Of course, "faster, higher, stronger" applies just as much to
those groups wishing to destroy political cooperation as it does
to those working together.
The next Olympic Summer Games are set for Beijing in 2008.
Almost $1 billion is devoted to security to protect the billions
organizers there will spend on facilities and event supplies.
Lessons exist out there for major cities wishing to bid on fu-
ture Games. The exorbitance of plans submitted by the finalists
for the 2012 Games, and thus the expense of protecting them
and the people involved in them, must lead the world to em-
brace a "back-to-basics" strategy for 2016.
The side effect of dialing down the scope of the event will be
to open up sports of all nations to areas that normally wouldn't
see world-class competition which was one of the original
driving principles of the IOC.
The lessons are waiting to be learnt.
No hurricane for Charley
The recent debacle in-
and former Florida
Governor Charley Johns has
not escaped us.
But we wonder how a
three-sentence description of
Johns, who's been dead for 15
years, in UF's alumni maga-
zine becomes a topic worthy
of worldwide derision.
UF Today Magazine
named Johns one of 81 "stand-
out alumni," based on his two
months at the university and
then short stint as governor.
For many reasons, his in-
clusion was a mistake.
The committee Johns
chaired was responsible for
the cruel torturing of gays,
blacks, and Jews at UE We
should remind ourselves of
this cruelty at every step as
the university moves forward
through a new century.
However, the pages of
a PR magazine are not the
right places to wage the war
avenging those shamed by
the Johns Committee, nor
should the magazine be the
proper venue to reintroduce
the group's misdeeds.
-Indeed, as some have rec-
ommended, we too believe
that such a display should be
made on a grander scale.
Let's not blame a fluff
magazine for an honest
mistake. It's the responsibil-
ity of those who know the
details and have the ability

Terrorist attacks transcend Underground

ism has become almost as routine as waking up and
turning on the television.
As I proceeded to do so. Thursday morning, what un-
folded before my eyes is something I refuse to accept as
The horrific scenes from London roused emotions
reminiscent of those during the events of Sept. 11, 2001.
The attacks on England's capital, more than 3,000 miles
away, hit surprisingly close to home.
On July 7, the sights and sounds of London were far
too familiar. Smoke billowed from the burning rubble as
civilians ran through the streets, some stopping to tend to
the bloodied and wounded.
A coordinated bombing had decimated three
Underground trains and a double-decker bus. Scotland Yard
Commissioner Ian Blair said the attacks had "all the hall-
marks of al-Qaeda." I couldn't help but sympathize with the
millions of people questioning the survival of a loved one.
It was the same question that haunted me for hours on end
after the World Trade Center collapsed on 9/11. All attempts
to make contact with either my mother or grandmother, both
of whom were in New York City, initially failed.
In addition, I couldn't reach any of my aunts, uncles
and cousins who I hoped had remained in the suburbs on
that fateful morning.
As the hours passed and phone lines opened, my
family's safety was assured one person at a time, but not
without a close call.
One of my cousins was eating breakfast on the ground
floor of the World Trade Center when the first plane hit.
Luckily, he escaped unharmed.
Unfortunately, the same can't be said for so many other
families affected by 9/11 and now this attack as well. More
Aaron Blye than 50 people were killed in London
Blye's Eyes and about 700 were injured. The re-
email@example.com mains are so mangled and difficult to
retrieve that authorities have yet to
identify a single person as the death
toll continues to rise.
The lives of the fallen have been relegated to that of a
statistic. We must do more to prevent this from happening
within our own country.
Although railway security in New York City was in-
creased temporarily Thursday, it was a departure from
business as usual.
Under normal circumstances, boarding a train with a
backpack of explosives like those used in London would
be as easy as walking down a public street.
Why, then, did the SenateAppropriations Subcommittee
on Homeland Security recently grant $50 million less than
last year's $150 million for transit and rail security?
Since the tragic events of 9/11, the federal government
has spent $18 billion on aviation security, but only $250
million for public-transportation security.
Thankfully, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-New York) re-
cently proposed an amendment to the Homeland Security
Appropriations bill that would double the $100 million
proposed for both mass transit and rail security.
The amendment also includes a provision that would
require the Department of Homeland Security to allocate
$20 million from its science budget to develop explosive
detectors for mass-transit stations, rail cars and buses.
As American citizens step from the station platforms
onto unprotected trains, we can only hope that Schumer's
amendment is voted into law.

'Free trade' not to be confused with 'fair'
In this week's Entertainment Weekly, Chris Martin of
Coldplay poses wearirfg a shirt that exhorts "Fair Trade."
Unfortunately, many similarly uneducated artists and
dilettantes advocate such trade as well.
Fair trade might seem fair to the millionaire farm tycoons
who paid to transport thousands of well-meaning protesters
to WTO and G8 protests in order to protect their subsidies
- but it hardly can be so for the billions around the world
who stand to gain from the liberating, yet invisible hand of
Since fair and free trade come in myriad forms, it might
be helpful to define my terms: Fair trade seeks to alleviate
poverty as a matter of social justice by using "fair pricing"
for goods and services, but it may also involve transparency,
environmental protection and tariffs.
I am reminded of fair trade's most eloquent speaker,
Dennis Kucinich, during his visit to UF last year, who warned
the masses that fear was killing this country thanks to the
Bush administration. He then proceeded to explain to us how
scary free trade is and how fearful we should be of business.
Well, no one ever accused fair traders of being cogent.
As Antony Flew pointed out, social justice itself isn't de-
fined by its greatest advocates! But hey, it's sure fun to say,
As with fair trade, free trade policies come in all shapes
and sizes. Free trade usually seeks the elimination of virtually
all trade barriers such as tariffs, as well as the free and unre-
stricted flow of labor and capital. It also calls for striking taxes,
subsidies and regulations on trade.
Through this anarchy of resources and people, living
standards rise across the board, in part due to comparative
advantage writ large. Also, people have the freedom to trade
as they please. Free traders tend to minimize the importance
of bargaining power as needless hand-wringing.
Christian Waugh The numbers, the equations and
The Final Frontier the stark realities all seem to support
email@example.com the efficacy of trade as a tool for good
in the world.
Looking at the nonpareil examples
of fair trade such as Cultural Revolution China, the archaic
Soviet Union or modern day Cuba and North Korea, we see
the impotence of fair trade more vividly than any argument
that can be made with words.
By contrast, looking at Australia, New Zealand, Hong
Kong and the United States might move you to tears.
Of course, this comparison between fair and free trade is
an exercise in generalities. The reality is that even fair trade
has its place.
For example, even militant and religious free traders, like
myself, do not condone slave labor in any means of produc-
tion, nor for the gains of the few at the expense of the many,
nor for propping up predatory despots.
In fact, advocates of free trade believe it is only a few short
steps from the restrictions and regulations of fair trade to such
tyranny,whether it is one of good or bad intentions.
Economist Hernando de Soto similarly says that for coun-
tries without property rights, free trade will only serve the
predators. Once these are in place, however, the sky is the
Accordingly, we recently agreed to the Central American
Free Trade Agreement and with hope, we will make agree-
ments with the Middle East and China before long.
These policy achievements will continue our 21st century
civilization's unmatched and unending advances in science,
technology and art, for such progress occurs because of trade
and freedom, not in spite of it.

Letter to the Editor
Libraries closed too much in Summer
Editor: I would like someone in
charge to explain to me why the UF li-
braries, which are used more frequently
by graduate students than by anyone
else, are closed the weekend before
the July 4 holiday, were only open lim-
ited hours during the "break" between
Summer A and Summer B and will be
closed virtually every weekend during
the month of August.
Campus "breaks" are solely utilized
by undergraduates aftd staff there
is no such thing as a "holiday" or "se-
mester break" for graduate students,
and we should have adequate access
to resources during these times, as they
are not government-sanctioned holidays
and the rest of America is still open for
Research conducted by faculty and
graduate students (which, incidentally,
is largely made possible by access to
library resources) brings in an over-
whelming amount of money to UF
($450 million in 2004), and our work
should not be compromised or placed
on the back burner.
I What the hell why don't we just
declare every day a UF holiday?

UF students will have a new study abroad
option with the establishment of the UF Center
for International Studies irrBeijing, China.
The center's director, Sherman Bai, said
the new site is intended to assist visiting
-UF students and professors, recruit Chinese
students to come to Gainesville and promote
the university's distance-education programs
Bai, a UF engineering professor, visited
Beijing from May to June and hired two staff
members for the center, located on the campus
of the China Agricultural University.
UF's International Center and Distance
Education program support the center finan-
cially, he said, though it is unclear when the
center would start accepting applicants or
what courses will be taught.
Bai said tuition at Chinese institutions is
lower than in the United States, an issue that
still must be resolved

China is one of the top five countries in

In each of the last four years, more than 400
students from China have attended UF.
A smaller number of UF students elect to
study abroad in China, Frazier said, adding
that such programs to China always have been
arranged through other universities.

Emmitt, linemen having record setting season
October 19, 1987 r Smith excelled
"Records don't mean much
to me," said Gator running back
Emmitt Smith, holder of many
Smith added to his collec-
tion Saturday in the Gators'
34-3 Homecoming victory over
Temple. By the time Smith is
through, he could have more
records than Hyde and Zeke's.
Still, he says, the records
don't mean that much. But that
was tested Saturday.
Smith rushed for 175 yards
and a touchdown on 23 carries.
That gives him 1,011 yards in
seven games, the earliest any
freshman ever gained more
than 1,000 yards. Pittsburgh's
Tony Dorsett and Georgia's
Herschel Walker both reached
the 1,000-yard level in eight
games during their freshman
Smith set the
Storysic record on his last
stor and longest carry,
a 25-yard sweep
to the left.
The record was announced
and Smith was swarmed
by celebrating teammates.
He jumped into offensive
tackle David Williams' arms.
"I told him thank you," Smith
said. "He did a great job today.
"Our offensive line deserves
the credit. They blocked great."
Smith's momentary display
of emotion showed that the re-
cords, or at least this one, must
mean something. But after the
game, Smith was characteristi-
"Emmitt had a lot of public-
ity and notoriety in high school
and had to go through much of
this back then," coach Galen
Hall said. "He has a very good
family and I think they have
raised the young man in the
But while Smith played
down the importance of his
records, his offensive linemen
relished the moment.
"It's just an unbelievable

Dickens said. "He also helps the

Emmitt Smith was a star running back
in Pensacola with plenty of potential,
but in 1987 freshmen simply did not
dominate in college football.
Smith changed it all, and just seven-
games into his illustrious career, he
became the fastest freshman in NCAA
history to rush for 1,000 yards.

from ever becoming a viable Heisman

deal to think of a freshman phenom,"
Catron said. "But no one was looking
for Emmitt to carry the team in '87."

NBA SUMMER LEAGUE I
Drejer no match for Lee, Knicks
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Call it motivation or call it a talent differential,
but David Lee gave no mercy to former UF team-
mate Christian Drejer on Monday.
In their first real meeting since Drejer deserted
the Gators, and his best friend Lee, in the middle of
the 2004 season to play in Europe, the two met up
in the NBA Summer League.
Lee, the final pick of the first round for New
York, and Drejer, attempting to make New Jersey's
roster as a free agent, met late
Monday night in Las Vegas.
