12 S TUDENT GOVERNMENT SEA TS OPEN:
Five run for Rackham

By ADRIENNE LYONS
Despite the fact that 12 seats are
open, only five candidtes are running
for positions on the Rackham Student
Government (RSG). Two of the can-
-didates are running for president, while
the others are running to represent
their academic divisions.
Presidential candidate James Miclot,
a third-year graduate student in
political science, said tenure is "one of
the most pressing issues" facing
graduate students today. "It (tenure)
hasn't been addressed well by RSG,"
Miclot said. "The whole thing is student
input. Should teaching or research be
judged (in tenure cases)?" Miclot said
he believes teaching is more important.
MICLOT ALSO said he would like to
improve communications among
graduate students through RSG. "The
power in RSG is under the rug. They
have meeting and don't publicize
them," he said. "People in Rackham
are timid. Who cares about RSG if it
hasn't publicized?"
Miclot also complained that elections
are not well publicized. "If I'm elected,

By MARY FARANSKI
Gerald Bell, Republican candidate in
the Fifth Ward City Council race, said
he deserves to be elected because of his
four years of experience on the council.
His Democratic challenger, Carol
Wallace, countered that in those four
years, Bell has rarely introduced any
measures on his own, and generally
follows the mayor on issues.
Wallace, 31, is the underdog in a
traditionally Republican ward, and as a
result has conducted a door-to-door
campaign in order to introduce herself.
Bell, 39, said his experience will only
help the ward, since Ann Arbor is
changing so rapidly that the City Coun-
cil needs continuity of officials instead
of the rapid changeover of the past few
years.
WALLACE, IF elected, said she plans
to hold monthly neighborhood meetings
to keep citizens in touch with the issues.
Bell said when he was first elected, he
tried this and found there w s a lack of
interest among citizens on the issues
which didn't directly affect them.
As for street repairs, Bell said in the
last year the Republican-dominated
Council has spent more money than
during the previous three years under
Democratic mayors. He said the
Republican road repair project "is a
start, but it is a big job."

:program enabling graduate student
teaching assistants who have taught for
one year, to receive a three-year
teaching guarantee from their depar-
tment, if both the graduate student and
the department approve.
Milbrath would also like to change
the fee structure for gradaute students,
lowering tuition, rather than increasing
pay, since lower tuition isn't taxable,
while higher pay is.
Although Milbrath believes that more
student influence is needed in tenure
decisions, he thinks RSG is limited in
what it can do. "Rackham can get in
touch with other support groups like the
Michigan Student Assembly (MSA),
Graduate Employees Organization
(GEO), and PIRGIM to get information
to them."

I'd make sure that the next elections
will be a big deal," Miclot said.
Miclot's opponent is Bob Milbrath, a
doctoral candidate in economics.
Milbrath sees RSG's major role as that
of liaison between the Rackham Ad-

ministrative Committee and depar-
tmental graduate students
organizations.
MILBRATH ALSO said he is concer-
ned with economic problems facing
gradaute students. His solution is a

Wallace'said she does not think the
resurfacing of streets will last long, and
that the Republicans have spent an ;
awful lot of money on only temporary
measures.
CALLING RENTAL rates on Ann Ar-
bor "unbelievable," Wallace said she
would favor rent ceilings or rent sub-
sidies. Bell sees the problem as one of;
supply and demand, not rent control
Rents will become more competitive if
more housing is available. Bell said

in F th
today's students don't caeif they live
in dorms or apartments, as long as they
are of good quality.
Both favor public and subsidized
housing - with federal funding - but
Bell said he wants the projects to be
spread out in order to avoid a public
housing "ghetto". Wallace also
stressed the planning aspect of the
issue. Most of the public housing to date
has been concentrated in the Fifth
Ward.

Ward
Wallace's main priority, if elected,
would be to "come up with some kind of
a decent (city) plan, instead of just let-
ting our land go piece by piece."
Bell has three top priorities:
providing city services and getting
money for street repairs; building and
developing quality housing; and
reducing the assessment process on
properties and a freeze on the assets for
people over 65.
