         EAU CLAIRE  President Bush calls for a return to normalcy, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani invites us all to Manhattan, and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's art department declares it your duty to join their annual spring trip to New York.
         An informational meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, in Room 105 of the Haas Fine Arts Center.
