ILLEGAL PROCEDURE CITED
Court rules on MSA
By DAVID MEYER
The Central Student Judiciary, a
student court, decided Monday night
that the Michigan Student Assembly
violated the procedure for appointmen-
ts outlined in its constitution and will
serve a permanent injunction
prohibiting similar constitutional
violations in the future.
In his complaint filed with judiciary,
former MSA financial officer Brad
Canale charged that MSA violated its
constitution when it appointed a student
to the University Cellar Board that had
not first been nominated by the Per-
manent Interviewing Committee. Ac-
cording to Canale, the MSA constitution
requires that all nominations come
from PIC and cannot come from the
Assembly as a whole.
SPENCER WALLER, who represented
Canale in the suit, told the judiciary
that the MSA constitution delegates the
power to nominate to PIC and that the
Assembly may not usurp that power.
MSA member Jon Feiger, who defen-
ded MSA at the hearings, asserted,
however, that MSA's constitution is
ambiguous on the topic, and that PIC's
power to make nominations does not
exclude the Assembly from also
After the preliminary judiciary
hearing, the Assembly rescinded the
appointment challenged by Canale in
hopes that the judiciary would then
dismiss the suit. MSA also reached an
agreement with the PIC whereby the
Assembly may appoint its own choice
for an office if the first two candidates
nominated by PIC are not accepted.
THE SIX-MEMBER judiciary,
however, would not dismiss the suit and
instead concurred with Canale in a
narrow 4-2 vote and will serve a per-
manent injunction allowing MSA to ap-
point only those persons first
nominated by PIC.
Canale said the decision handed down
by the judiciary represents a major
constitutional precedent. Further, he
said the decision will serve to make
MSA more efficient by more clearly
deliniating the separate powers
delegated to the Assembly as opposed
to those delegated to the various inter-
nal committees, including PIC.
MSA President Marc Breakstone
said, however, that no significant
precedent has been determined and
that the CSJ decision will have little ef-
fect on MSA's functioning.
"This permanent injunction will have
no practical impact on MSA,"
Breakstone said, adding that MSA will
continue to operate under the new
agreement reached with PIC.

Gov. William Milliken lashed out at
'the Tisch tax cut proposal and Rep.
Carl Pursell (R-Plymouth) stumped for
the "Women's Bill of Rights" during a
campaign stop at the Michigan Union
In addition to stumping for Pursell,
who is running for his third term in the
°House of Representatives, Milliken
*urged the 50 people present to vote
against the Tisch amendment in
"The Tisch proposal is Proposal D on
the ballot-D for Disaster," the gover-
nor said. "I don't want.to overstate the
case but if the Tisch Amendment is
adopted it would be . . . an absolute
disaster for the state of Michigan."
Pursell, who represents the 2nd
congressional district, plugged .the
"Women's Bill of Rights," a series of 13
proposals designed to provide specific
protection for women on a wide variety
The package was developed by more
than 60 women from the 2nd district
representing various women's
organizations, including the League of
Women Voters and the National
-Organization of Women (NOW), he
"I attempted to gain a consensus on
women's rights. . . because I'm not an
expert (on women's rights)-you
women are the experts."
Pursell also responded to criticism
about the selection of they-members of
the coalition saying, "I didn't hand-pick
the group, the individual organizations
sent representatives to me."
After considering 60 pieces of
legislation which protect the rights of
women, the coalition agreed to include
13 of them in a bill of rights, Pursell
said. The congressman said the next
steps are to examine the cost of the
plan, and gain bi-partisan support in
Congress and from the president.
During a question and answer
sessi6n, Milliken added to his attack on
Proposal D saying that if the tax cut is
approved, *"11 or 12 of the 16 state
colleges or universities that receive
state aid would lose' all of their state
funds. Others, including Michigan,
MSU, and Wayne State would have
their aid cut in half."
Milliken advocated the adoption of
Proposal C, the Legislative-Executive
Tax plan, calling it a "responsible" tax
cut. Proposal C would provide some
property tax relief and offset the loss of
revenues by raising the state sales tax
from 4 to 5.5 percent.
A member of the audience asked
Pursell if his "middle-of-the-road"
stand on abortion is going to change
when it comes time to vote "aye or
naye" on abortion amendments.
Pursell responded that he still feels
abortion is "appropriate under certain
circumstances, such as when the
mother's life is in dangerpr in cases of
rape or incest."
He said he is "consistently opposed to
the Hyde Amendment," which states
that no federal funds may be used to
fund an abortion unless the mother's
life is endangered by carrying the
pregnancy to term.
, Milliken praised Pursell's support of
women in their struggle for equality,
noting the Congressman's support of
the ERA deadline extension bill in
Food Mart robbed
A 32-year-old Ann Arbor resident was
released on bond after allegedly rob-
bing the Food Mart grocery store on
South University Avenue early yester-
day morning. Steve Falls was caught
leaving the store with two or three rolls
of pennies and other items, Sgt. Harold
Tinsey said. Falls allegedly forced open
a rear door off the alley and set off an
audible alarm. A passerby heard the
alarm and called the police.

Contract negotiations between
University Hospital registered nurses
and administrators entered their third
week Monday. An administration
spokesman acknowledged last night
that both sides are still some distance
from reaching an agreement, after
meeting for the thirteenth time.
Chances for an immediate settlement
look slim, according to University
Assistant Personnel Director John For-
sythe. "It's a matter of weeks more
than days," he said. "In terms of
issues, they're not halfway yet, but in
terms of time they may be well more
that Flint led the country with a 20 per-
cent unemployment rate.
It wasn't too long ago that the rate
was 27 percent, he added, and Michigan
is the state with the highest unem-
ployment rate at 12.2 percent.
THE ONLY PEOPLE doing better in
the economy are the people who write
Carter/Mondale press releases,
than half way."
The nurses are presently working un-
der the terms of their old contract,
which may be cancelled by either side
provided that a seven-day notice is
THE NURSES' bargaining unit
represents more than 1,000 registered
nurses at University Hospital, but does
not include the approximately 200 head
and assistant head nurses, or the Direc-
tor of Nursing.
A seven-person team is conducting
negotiations for the University ad-
ministrators. The team consists of both
nursing and hospital administrators.
The strike began Sept. 30.
Reagan said. He quipped, "They have
to be the busiest people in the world
running an economic platform only a
mother could love."
Reagan emphasized that he was
sympathetic to the plight of unem-
ployed auto workers. A Reagain ad-
ministration would make things dif-
ferent ' they would "give the auto in-
dustry a chance to be profitable."
"As an old union man," the former
member of the Screen Actors Guild ex-
plained, "unless there are profits,
labor doesn't have much to bargain
Reagan said he considers the coun-
try's current economic crisis a
depression. Carter was "hiding behind
a dictionary" when he referred to the
situation as a recession, he said.
"Recession is when your neighbor
loses his job. Depression is when you do
and recovery is when Jimmy Carter
loses his," Reagan stated.
"The money supply is not wealth; but
goods and services for the
people-that's the wealth of our
nation," Reagan said. He explained
that we need aggressive progress for
exporting American cars and trucks.
"American cars and trucks can com-
pete with any other world market,"
Reagan emphasized amidst thunderous
cheers and applause.
Martin Dennis, an unemployed
Teamster at the rally, said he didn't
know who he was going to vote for yet.
"Carter's not going to do anything. He
wants to subsidize GM."
Dennis said he was upset because the
Teamsters weren't getting any money
from the Trade Readjustment
Allowance. "General Motors'got the tax
payers money," he complained. "It's
