THOMAS M. DONAHUE MEMORIAL STUDENT FUND
 
"I want to know how the planets of the solar system were formed, 
how they came to evolve as they did and the significance of all 
that for the existence of life in the solar system and in the 
rest of the universe." -- Thomas Donahue
 
While Tom may now be silent, his unquenchable desire to learn 
and then to learn more will remain part of his legacy for 
generations to come. It is in this spirit that the Department 
of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences is establishing 
the Thomas M. Donahue Memorial Student Fund. There will be no 
funeral service for Tom and the family has requested that in 
lieu of flowers, a lasting tribute would be a contribution 
that will further PhD students in their quest to learn more 
about the universe in which we live.
 
Contributions towards the Thomas M. Donahue Memorial Student 
Fund may be sent to:
 
Thomas M. Donahue Memorial Student Fund
Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences
Room 2204 SRB
2455 Hayward Street
Ann Arbor, MI 48109-2143
 
Please make checks payable to the University of Michigan.

CLARIFICATION OF BANQUET TICKET SALES POLICY
 
After correspondence with several DPS members, we offer the 
following clarification of the policy stated yesterday for 
purchasing banquet tickets.
 
DPS Banquet tickets may be ordered by ANY valid pre-registration 
method on or before Oct. 29 (not just the online method).  There 
will be no ticket  sales or refunds after Oct. 29 or on-site 
because of caterer and venue deadlines.
