activist goals

By DAVID MEYER
Pledging to catalyze student action
in a number of ways, Michigan Student
ssembly President Marc Breakstone
utlined the goals and directions he
hopes MSA will pursue during his
presidency.
In the student government's first-
meeting of the academic year Tuesday
night, I}reakstone spoke of expanding
MSA's influence on campus. In addition
to MSA's basic administration fun-
ctions, Breakstone asserted, "we also
have an activist function which over the
ast few'years has been badly neglec-
ed."
Avoiding most specifics, Breakstone
pointed to housing, campus security,
and the University's health service as
parts of student life that are currently
unsatisfactory. Breakstone advocates

establishing independent advisory
"task forces," working under an MSA
mandate, that would investigate the
problems, analyze the information and
recommend specific course of action to
the Assembly.
TIME AND AGAIN Breakstone spoke
of bolstering student input in the ad-
ministration's policy decisions. He was
confident the current Assembly could
overcome the University's
traditional resistance to increased
student influence on policy, which has
been a stumbling block of previous
MSA administrations. Comparing him-
self to past MSA presidents, Breakstone
noted his "firm commitment to assert
the needs of students to the Univer-
sity-to fight for the needs of students."
Pointing to MSA's success in ap-
plying a comprehensive course

evaluation program and its ability to
exert pressure on library officials to
reverse their decision to reduce library
hours, Breakstone claimed his was the
MSA that could prompt administrative
action.
In a move to reorganize MSA,
Breakstone announced a plan to place a
greater influence on the actions of the
MSA Steering Committee. The Steering
Committee, made up of MSA officers1
and committee chairpersons, will dor

more planning in advance of the
general Assembly meeting to arrange
agenda priorities and coordinate their
leadership efforts.
"LAST YEAR the Steering $ommit-
tee virtually did not exist," Breakstone
,told the Assembly. With this new em-
phasis, Breakstone hopes to streamline
the agenda and make the most effective
use of time during the general Assem-
bly meetings by eliminating un-
necessary floor debate.

In other action in their Tuesday
meeting, MSA passed a resolution sup-
porting a 'student interim advisory
committee in its efforts to provide
student input inito the planning of the
Michigan Union renovation project. In
the tame resolution, MSA allocated
$250 to the committee for the adver-
tisement of hearings tosbe held on the
project. Although MSA overwhelmingly
approved the resolution, questions were
raised by dissenting MSA member Tim

Feeman over the propriety 'f
allocating the student funds to an
organization not yet formally
recognized as a student group.
MSA also gave preliminary approval
to a plan that would move one Assem-
bly meeting each month to a dorm, co-
op, fraternity, sorority or other campus
housing in an effort to involve more
students in their student government.,

City teachertalks continue

Die-hard Boss fans
' Prove i*t all night'

By JULIE BROWN
Negotiations between striking Ann
Arbor school teachers and the city's
school board continued yesterday, with
both sides reporting some progress in
the nine-day old strike.
"As far. as I know, they're still
meeting," Ann Arbor Education
Association spokesman Dan Burroughs
said yesterday at 10 p.m. He added that
he spoke with AAEA President Richard
Taylor at approximately 6:30 p.m.
yesterday. Taylor indicated no con-
crete progress on specific issues or con-
tract language, but noted that the con-
tinuation of negotiations was a positive
sign, Burroughs said.
"I would suppose if they're making
good progress, they would continue on
into the evening," Burroughs said.
TUESDAY, NEGOTIATORS from
the teachers' association and the school

board met for a nine-hour bargaining
session. The session, which ended at
approximately 11 p.m., included "frank
discussion," although no formal
proposals were exchanged, Burroughs
said. The Tuesday session was the first
since negotiations broke off early
Friday evening.
Tuesday's discussion included
several issues-various salary package
offers, as well as the issues of
qualifications in determining teacher
layoff procedures and the assignment
of homerooms to intermediate school
teachers, Burroughs said. No mediator
from the Michigan Employment
Relations Commission was present at
Tuesday's session, Burroughs added,
although both sides met last Friday
with a state mediator.
Assistant Superintendent of Schools
Robert Moseley said late yesterday af-

ternoon that school superintendent
Harry Howard had contacted him at
approximately 3:30 p.m. yesterday, in-
dicating progress.
"WE STILL don't have anything
signed on a dotted line, in terms of a
settlement," Moseley said. He added
that administrators also considered the
continuation of negotiations a good
sign.
"As long as that process is going on,
you can always be encouraged that
there's going to be a settlement,"
Moseley added. Yesterday's
negotiations began at 10 a.m., he said.
Last night's school board meeting,
scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. at the Ann

Arbor Public Library, was cancelled
yesterday aftermon so that
negotiations would be able to continue
on into the evening, Moseley said. Late
yesterday afternoon, only one person
had signed up to speak during the
meeting's public commentary session,
Moseley said, although signing up in
advance is not mandatory.
The teachers' association had:
proposed last Friday that the dispute be
settled by binding arbitration, an action
school board members turned down
Saturday, citing their responsibility to
the community as elected officials and
the lack of interest in or familiarity
with Ann Arbor an arbitrator might
have.

spread across campus and "friends told
friends" of the imminent sale, the list of
names waiting at Crisler stood at well
over 100 by late last night.
THEY ARE queuing to see Bruce
pringsteen, a growly-voiced college
op-out from Asbury Park who com-
mands a singularly devoted following of
rock and roll fanatics.
Called "The Boss" by his fans,
Springsteen has chosen to lead off his
fall tour in Ann Arbor. First in line for
tickets for his October 3 concert were a
pair of business school students,
sophomore Mark Kenen and junior
Tom Goldfogle. By virtue of their
position in the line these two are regar-
ded as de facto traffic cops for they con-
rol the order of the rest of the line.
At any one time most of those in line
are oily holding a place for a group of
fans. Periodically Goldfogle and
Kenen, or some member of their team,
call a meeting of these representatives
to take a roll call. Should a name not be
represented at the time of the count,
that name gets scratched from the list.
KENEN, A veteran of 30 Springsteen
,oncerts, feels Springsteen's popularity
tems from his "basic rock and roll. He
doesn't show too much flash." The
Crisler concert is not enough
Springsteen for Kenen, as he also has
tickets for Springsteen's Oct. 9 show in
Detroit.,

Lesa Borninski, an LSA senior, has
never seen Springsteen before, but she
thinks enough of him to spend 36 hours
waiting in line.
The story of Springsteen and his E
Street Band, the musicians who perform
with him onstage and on albums, is one
of a meteoric rise accompanied by a
heaping amount of media hype. "I have
seen the future of rock and roll, and its
name is Bruce Springsteen," one critic
wrote several years ago: Springsteen
went from playing gritty East Coast
dives to having his face on the cover of
Time and Newsweek in only a few short
years.
SPRINGSTEEN'S APPEARANCE at
Crisler is his second visit to Ann Ar-
bor-his first was in 1975, when he
played at Hill Auditorium.
Outside Crisler Arena the at-
mosphere was spirited, with mat-
tresses and bottles of beer to make the
loyal fans comfortable. And, as might
be expected, a Springsteen tape is often
playing in the background.
The fact that the Ann Arbor show is
the first of Springsteen's tour adds to
the significance of this concert for LSA
junior Dave Sharken. He and his frien-
ds could not obtain tickets for the Cobo
Arena performance. Junior Steve
Abrams, a member of the Sharken
group that holds spots 10-13 on the list,
said he heard of the concert through a
rumor early Tuesday evening. By 10
p.m. his team had their tent set up.

Springsteen to kick
.off tour at Crisler

(Continued from Page 1

"It was the logical place to start
the , tour," said Barbara Carr, a
spokeswoman for Springsteen's Jon
Landau booking agency. She added that
East Lansing had been considered as a
possible concert site, "but there were
problems with the arena."
THE LAST TIME Springsteen was in
4"n Arbor, in September of 1975, he
was scheduled to appear at the Power
Center. When demand for tickets
quickly exceeded supply, the location
was moved to Hill Auditorium.
Since that time, Springsteen has
established himself as one of the
nation's most popular performers. His
platinum "Born to Run" album became
one of the 70s most successful rock
releases.
Madden said yesterday that the
tumultuous response to the news of

Springsteen's appearance "certainly
surprised me. I didn't realize how big
he is."
From Ann Arbor, Springsteen will
travel to Cincinnati for an Oct. 4 con-
cert, and to Cleveland for two ap-
pearances. He will perform in Detroit
on Oct. 9-a Cobo Hall concert that has
already sold out.
The Cascade Mountain Range of the
western United States is peppered with
volcanoes. Washington state's Mount
St. Helens and California's Lassen
Peak, which erupted from 1914-21, are
the only two that' have exploded this
century in the 48 contiguous states. But
Mounts Baker, Rainer, Hood, and
Shasta also have erupted in the last few
hundred years, according to National
Geographic.*
