In an effort to increase discussion
between the University Cellar Board of
Directors and the Cellar employees, the
Michigan Student Assembly (MSA)
passed a resolution Tuesday night
directing its Cellar ad hoc committee to
oversee the talks between the two sides.
In its resolution, MSA said it
believed the board should have
discussions with the employees' union,
"carried out soon in good faith." The in-
tent of the resolution was "to force the
board to have full-blown discussions
with the employees just short of
negotiations," according to MSA and ad
hoc committee member Jim Sullivan.
. THE BOARD has wanted to im-
plement a new managerial structure at
the store and employees objected to the
new plan. They felt it would destroy
their input into the store decision-
making process, and believed that the
structure was an issue to be negotiated
during their current contract talks.
Both the board and the management of
the store have so far refused to include
that issue into the negotiations.
MSA, which apppoints the six student
members of the board, had established
a committee to consider the possibility
of forcing the appointed students to in-
clude the structure into the contract
The committee's resolution, according'
to Sullivan, did not give the board a
mandate but rather set a policy
statement the board should follow. He
said the committee would pressure
each side, especially the board, to
seriously discuss the issue in good faith.
"The union is ready to carry out
discussions on the managerial struc-
ture, and we want the board to discuss
it, rather than just accept input on this
issue," he said.
THE ASSEMBLY is taking this ac-
tion because "there had been concern
that the board was playing delaying
games until school was out," Sullivan
added. "Then, there would be no MSA,
just a steering committee, and the
board could not be mandated to take
any action," he said.
The communications between the
board, management, and the em-
ployees have been "pathetic," Sullivan
said, and the committee would monitor
the talks to make sure the discussion
took place. "If they (the board mem-
bers) don't talk with the employees,
then we will step in and force them to,"
Sullivan was not really pleased with
MSA's action. "This is a place where
the students can control the situation,
but we're backing away from it. The
Assembly is not responding to the
issue," he said.
MSA is also considering placing
Cellar employees on the board, in an ex-
officio position. This proposal will be
discussed at next week's meeting,
Sullivan said. Currently the board is
composed of six student appointees,
three faculty members, and a Univer-

Part of the plan
When DAn Fogelberg concert tickets went on sale yesterday
morning at the Union box office, sophomore nursing students Lori
Lane and Jan Kromer were antsier than most. The dedicated fans had
waited in line for 25 hours and even rented a Union hotel room to avoid
being removed from the lobby for loitering. A Union desk clerk was
unsure of how many Fogelberg fanatics rented rooms because "we
don't ask people why they happen to rent rooms."
The Soviet Union called on Communist China on March 19, 1969
to jin in negotiationscaimed at ending border clashes. The Soviet
statement proposed that officials of both powers should "resume in the
nearest consultations that were started in Peking in 1964." Three
clashes earlier that month had led observers to fear larger conflicts.

California dream in'
Although state courts foiled their previous attemps. to scrap
marijuana laws, the good citizens of Berkeley, Cal. think they have
devised a foolproof method of nullifying the laws' effect, according to
the Daily Californian. An initiative on next month's election ballot
calls for withholding payment from police officers who enforce
marijuana laws. "To the xtent that Berkeley police are enforcing the
laws against marijuana, the people of Berkeley have less protection
from major crimes such as rape and murder," explained campaign
leader Steven Bloom. Initiative backers have also retained a mascot,
dubbed "Mescalito," to fill their campaign coffers. Mescalito dresses
up as a peyote button and sells raffle tickets to benefit the drive. In
selecting a prize for the raffle, the campaigners apparently decided to
cater to the interests of their likely supporters. First prize is a
kilogram of a "lealfy green subsance of Colombian origin."
