By EILEEN LOEHER
Sander Levin, Democratic
candidate for governor, told a
somewhat hostile group of stu-
dents last night that he will
take a greater role in affecting
federal policy if elected gover-
nor.

charged. "A governor can't de-
termine federal policy, but he
can be an influence," he added.
DURING THE informal ques-
tion-and-answer session with stu-
dents in the Law Quad, Levin
opposed both state legalization
of marijuana and cross-district
busing. He did favor the present
abortion law which allows abor-
tion on demand.
Although Levin termed athe
present inflation "an immense
outrage," he hedged on offering
solutions to alleviate the prob-
lem.
Students criticized Levin heat-
edly for overrating his own in-

SGC puts limits on spending
in wake of money troubles

By PAUL TERWILLIGER
Student Government Council (SGC) passed legis-
lation last night placing tighter controls on the dis-
bursement of council funds.
The motion, fathered by council members Robert
Gordon and Greg Higby and amended by David
Faye, added clauses to the SGC compiled code
directing the SGC president and treasurer to be
bonded - insuring SGC against any possible mis-
appropriation of funds.
The motion also asked that signatures from both
bonded officers on every disbursement check made
out by SGC.
AN AMENDMENT TO the motion asked that the
above motion as well as questions concerning an
annual legal audit of SGC accounts and monthly
treasury reports be placed on the ballot at the next
constitutional election.
The motion was passed in an effort by council to
insure itself against unconstitutional actions like
the alleged misappropriation of almost $8,000 of

SGC money by former SGC President Lee Gill.
The second motion, if passed, would establish by
referendum more accurate bookkeeping records and,
would thus prevent SGC from unintentionally going
into debt.
SGS President Carl Sandberg announced last night
that Council will not hold spring' elections this
year, as had earlier been approved, because of
SGC's financial condition.
Sandberg had earlier announced that he had
talked with Vice President for Student Services
Henry Johnson, who said he would agree to having
the administration advance .SGC's fall payment
in order to cover outstanding debts and operating
expenses for the summer, on the condition that
SGC would not spend any additional money before
the fall money allotment.
LAST WEEK SGC voted to let member Jim Glick-
man organize spring elections and cover all costs
for the fee of $750, to be paid in the fall.

HRP announces intentions in
June school board elections

By BILL HEENAN
The Human Rights Party (HRP)
last night announced its intention
to run two candidates, including a
high school student in the upcom-
ing June 14 School Board elec-
tions.
Though legally disqualified as
underage, Larry Mlann, 15, a stu-
dent at Earthworks High School,
plans to campaign, hoping to dem-
onstrate that students are under-
represented on the School Board.
"The School Board is contrplled
by right wing people, and we've
got to make voters think about
us," he said.
AT THE PARTY'S open mass
meeting in the Union, two other
HRP members, Astrid Beck and
Bob Alexander, also declared they

decided at a special April 21 meet-
ing.
Astrid Beck, a teaching fellow in
the Gerinan department, and par-
ent, blasted, the school board's
recent Plan 14, saying that "it has
disrupted the lives of North Cam-
pus school children forced to at-
tend other schools because of over-
crowding in Huron High."
"We must consider the human
point of view, not just the dollar
and cents issue," she contended.
Also running is Bob Alexander,
Willow Run elementary school
teacher. He was unavailable for
comment.'
AFTER HEATED debate, the
party approved former City. Coun-
cil candidate Harry Kevorkian's
proposal to treat the school board
campaign as "any other election,"
imposing a maximum $1000 spend-
ing level.

The meeting was interrupted by
an anonymous bomb threat direct-
ed at Student Government Council
which was also meeting in the
Union. The threat forced evacua-
tion of the entire building.
FRANK SHOICHET, former HRP
treasurer opposed Kevorkian's pro-
posal, claiming that, "We've lost it
already." Shoichet contends that
the party cannot win the student
vote because absentee ballots were
not made available to them.
Missy Frity, grad, and also a
parent, warned that Shoiohet's at-
titude would "kiss the kids good-
bye."
RON ALPERN from Program for
Educational and Social Change cau-
tioned, "HRP shouldn't be caught
in thinking that racism, ageisrn,
and sexism can be changed unless
the capitalistic society is changed
first."
