A2 School Board votes on Black

The Ann Arbor School Board decided
to schedule a special meeting today to
vote again on whether to appeal the
recent Black English decision, since the
board's president declared the original
vote violated the state's Open Meeting
School Board President Kathy Dan-
nemiller said she declared Wed-
nesday's vote invalid because the board
would have had to decide publicly to
hold an executive session, or private
meeting, which it did not do. Dan-

nemiller also said the final vote was not
held in public.I
ALTHOUGH Dannemiller stressed
that she wasn't sure if the meeting ac-
tually did violate the act, she declared
it invalid as a precaution. "I did it
unilaterally," she said, "but they
(board members) have since agreed."
Assistant superintendent Robert
Moseley agreed with Dannemiller's
precautionary measure. "It's (the
possible violation) subjective, and I'm
not a lawyer," he said. "But it's best to
have all your bases covered."

It was believed that a new vote might
change the original decision to appeal
the case, since some members might
not have been able to attend the special
meeting. Neither Moseley nor Dan-
nemiller would speculate on this
possibility, but Dannemiller said,
"Everyone has agreed to be there."
Dannemiller said a two-thirds vote
would be needed today to hold a closed
session with the board's attorneys. If
the vote fails, Dannemiller said, "We'll
just meet with the attorneys in public."
In any case, she added, the final vote

would be taken in public. Moseley ad-
ded thata simple majority of five or
more is required to pass the final vote.
U.S. District Court Judge Charles
Joiner ruled July 12 that the Ann Arbor
school district would have 30 days to
develop a program which would iden-
tify Black English speakers among its
students to aid in teaching the students
standard English.
Today's special school board meeting
is scheduled for 4:30 p.m., At the Ann
Arbor Public Library.

plan is
to unify
One black studenit has begun a
campaign to unite disparate minority
organizations on campus in order to
provide a supportive atmosphere and to
"generate black awareness."
"I feel a lot of weaknesses in a lot of
places. Too many people don't care,"
said Sherry King, who, with the help of
the housing division, is organizing
Black Students United. "Since we are
lacking in these things, I feel students
can become involved and can teach
each other."
sororities and fraternities, King said
she plans to create student-generated
programming geared towards blacks,
such as extensive peer counseling, and
speakers such as U.S. Rep. John
Conyers (D-Detroit) and United
Nations Ambassador Andrew Young.
King said she has asked the Univer-
sity housing division's Special Projects
Programs, which already provides
similar services in dorms, for funding.
"There is a need for lines of com-
munication among minority students,"
said Leroy Williams, assistant director
of housing information, who has worked

Regents schedule special
The University Board of Regents scheduled a
special meeting for 6 p.m. Monday to further
discuss "preliminary candidates" for the Univer-
sity presidency. The meeting is expected to be held
in closed session. It is similar to a meeting held July
9, in which the Board also discussed potential
presidential candidates. University spokespersons
said the Regents are not expected to name a new
president Monday.
Inflation fighting food stores
The 10 Warehouse Market food stores in the Reno,
Nevada area are out to help consumers. The stores'
management tags items whose cost has increased
by more than President Carter's seven per cent
wage-price guidelines .within a week withg this

message: "In our opinion, the price the manufac-
turer charged us for this item is inflationary."
Needless to say, the tagged items aren't selling
well-but, neither are Carter's guidelines.
