TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Campus police are investigating
vandalism of two black Greek houses at the University of Alabama,
including whether the incidents are connected and racially
motivated, a spokeswoman said Monday.
Cathy Andreen said vandals threw eggs at the houses of Alpha Phi

house. The decorations were to be judged during a competition the
