    PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) - A Princeton University dean will be removed
    from his job for accessing Yale University's admissions Web site
    without authorization, Princeton's president said Tuesday.
    Stephen LeMenager, associate dean and director of admissions, had been
    on paid leave. He has said he accessed the site to see how secure it
    Princeton President Shirley M. Tilghman also said disciplinary action
    will be taken against some employees of Princeton's admission office.  
    She declined to provide details.
    "I think the action taken by our admission staff were breaches of
    ethical behavior and breaches of confidentiality," Tilghman said.
    Yale officials said they found 18 unauthorized log-ins to their site
    that were traced to computers at Princeton. That included 14 from the
    admissions office, three from students elsewhere on campus and one
    from a Yale applicant who used a Princeton computer.
