Alpena
schools
will open
Tuesday
ALPENA (UPI) - Alpena schools
will be back in business Tuesday,
though many of the northern Michigan
district's 6,800 students may have to
look for another way to get to class.
Voters in the county-wide district
went to the polls in record number
Friday and approved a tax levy aimed
at reviving the bankrupt school system,
but defeated a second proposal that
would have funded buses and athletics.
'4
THE REJECTION of that second
millage will also mean the end of
elementary music, library privileges,
hot lunches and extracurricular ac-
tivities, district officials said.
"I'm happy," said Alpena superin-
tendent John Taylor, "Not as happy as
I would have been if both issues had
passed, but we're going to be reopening
doors."
Alpena County voters, much
aware of all the national attention that
has been heaped upon.their community,
responded to the millage election in
record number, with 12,000 of the
district's 18,000 eligible voters casting
ballots.
"I THINK people realized the impor-
tance of getting kids back in school,"
said Taylor. "This is a proud com-
munity that has also recognized the
need for education."
The school board barred the doors in
the state's only countywide district Oct.
16, when it was learned the system was
broke.
The successful millage measure,
rejected by voters three times in the
past, will generate $14 million - enough
to allow the reopening of schools in the
district.

MSA urges letters to Congress

By BETH ALLEN
The MichiganStudent Assembly will be
staffing tables in the Fishbowl and
several dormitories this week, trying to
persuale students to write their
Washington legislators to prevent fur-
ther cutbacks in federal financial aid
programs.
Tomorrow and Tuesday, MSA mem-
bers will hand out paper, envelopes,
stamps, and information on proposals
to cut an additional $562 milliofi from
federal assistance programs for
students.
"I THINK in a lot of ways it (the let-
ter writing campaign) can be effective
in that there are a lot of students at
Michigan from states whose
congressmen are very influential,"
said MSA President Jon Feiger. Feiger
said some important legislators from
New York and Illinois will be especially
key in voting down the additional cuts.
I addition to organizing this week's
letter writing campaign, MSA mem-
bers will be compiling a mailing list of
students who are concerned about the
possibility of further federal cutbacks.
Feiger said MSA then would be able to
use this list to organize future letter
writing campaigns on similar issues.
"THAT (compiling an effective
mailing list) is important in building
any sort of student block," Feiger said.t
MSA Legislative Relations coor-

dinator Dan Perlman, who organized
this week's campaign, insisted that let-
ters from students can influence the
outcome of a crucial vote on the
proposal by the Senate Appropriations
Committee Nov. 9.
"I've worked in Washington; I've
seen congressmen reading their mail,"
Perlman said. "They don't receive all
that much mail. And if they receive an
influx of mail on one issue, they notice
it."E A ds
PERLMAN said the proposals ap-
proved by the Senate Committee on
Labor, Health and Human Services,
and Education could make further cuts
beyond those approved by the House,
which Oct. 6 called for a 12 percent
reduction in financial aid funds.
The Senate cuts, if approved by the
Appropriations Committee, could in-
clude:
" Reduction of Pell Grant funds from
$2.65 billion to $2.37 billion, excluding
up to 600,000 students who are currently
eligible for funds.
" Reduction of Supplemental
Educational Opportunity Grants funds
from $370 million to $215 million, making
ineligible an estimated 270,000 students.
" Cuts in National Direct Student
Loan funds from $286 million to $186
million, making for approximately
143,000 fewer loans.
THE COLLEGE Work=Study

program would be unaffected by the bill
in its current form.
In addition, Perlman said students
should be concerned about what he said
were the Reagan administration's
unofficial proposals to make students
pay the interest on Guaranteed Student
Loans while they are still in school.
The proposal could force local banks
to grant fewer guaranteed loans to
students, according to Perlman,
because bankers would be afraid of an
increase in the number of defaults on
the loans.
PERLMAN said MSA will stress that
out-of-state- students (and particularly
those with senators on the Ap-
propriations Committee) write their
home senators instead of Michigan
Senators Riegle and Carl Levin.
We want to widen our base beyond,
Levin and Riegle to senators who will
have a more directand immediate ef-
fect on the bill," Perlman said.
MSA will provide a short fact sheet at
the tables as well as stamps, envelopes,
and the addresses of the senators. The
tables will be stationed in the Fishbowl
all day tomorrow and Tuesday-
Markley and Bursley at the dinner lines
tomorrow and at East Quad and West
Quad at dinner on Tuesday.

Students interested in deciphering
the political process have an oppor-
tunity to do so every Sunday thorugh
Dec. 6 when state and local Democratic
party! leaders conduct training
workshops to discuss "Who Does
What, and When?"
Sheila Cumberworth, co-vice-
chairwoman for Democratic cam-
paigns in Ann Arbor, is organizing the
program, which began Sept. 20 and is
held at the Guild House, 802 Monroe.
"WEHAVE had a poor'turnout in the
program thus far," she said. "Students
feel exploited and alienated from
politics." About 15 students have atten-
ded each session.

Typically, Cumberworth said,
student campaign volunteers have been
assigned tasks, such as passing out
campaign literature and knocking on
doors, but have not been shown how
those tasks fit into the overall cam-
paign. Cumberworth said she hopes the
workshop will clear up the mystery.
The program has two objectives: to
help the local Democratic party and to
help students understand political
philosophy. Some topics to be covered
in the workshops include election day
use of precinct data, sources of cam-
paign funds, use of campaignfunds and
the role of the campaign manager.
"Anyone who is interested at all
should attend," Cumberworth said.
"We're after 'new blood!' "

The ituaionof the Writer rtoda
Born in 1904, Ding Ling, China's most famous wom-
an writer, has been the center of political and lit-
erary controversy for most of her long career.
While still in her twenties, she won considerable
fame-and notoriety-for her unprecedentedly
frank stories about the "modern" emancipated
woman. Her fiction took a leftward turn in the 1930s
when she joined the Chinese Communist Party and
became active in the Revolution. In 1951 she won
the Stalin Prize for The Sun Shines on the Sanggan
River, a novel on land reform. In the early years
of the People's Republik, she was one of the most
prominent members in its cultural hierarchy, but
she became a target during the anti-rightist cam-
paign of 1957. Expelled from the Communist Party,
her works completely banned, she was sent to
northern Manchuria for "labor reforth." Her twelve
years of exile were followed by five years of soli-
tary imprisonment. She was finally released in
1975, and her official "rehabilitation" in 1979 per-
mitted her at age 75 to resume- her writing career.
