91 candidates to run
By GEORGE ADAMS
Ninety-one students will be squaring off this year
for the annual elections for the Michigan Student
Assembly next month.
Thirty-three independents and 58 students af-
filiated with three campus political parties registered
as candidates before the filing deadline at 5 p.m.
TWO QUESTIONS will also appear on the April 6
and 7 ballot. One will ask students whether the
University should boycott products made by the
Nestle company and the second will ask whether the
University should charge a 50-cent tax on every
athletic and entertainment ticket sold, through the
University to generate money for financial aid. The
results of both ballotquestions will be non-binding
And will liave only an advisory use.
The race for the student government presidency
ad vice presidency will be a three-way battle bet-
ween the candidates from the three parties: The
People's Action Coalition (PAC), Voice, and the
British Humor Party (BHP).
The PAC candidates for the top two posts are David
Guttchen, a newcomer to MSA politics, and Ruste
Fischer, who is currently the nursing school
representative to the assembly.
JUNIORS AMY Moore and Stephon Johpson lead
the Voice ticket. Moore has worked with MSA's
Financial Aid Committee. Johnson, a com-
munications major, is secretary of the Black Pre-
Law Association and the vice president of the Black
Voice is running 21 candidates on its ticket, though
PAC is running the largest number of students with a
ticket of 30 candidates. The BHP is running seven
Although Voice has not yet finalized its party plat-
form, Moore said that the party will be focusing on
the issues of the University administration's retren-
chment, including its Five Year Plan, campus
security, financial aid, and minority affairs.
PAC's vice presidential candidate Fischer said her
party will be announcing its platform later this week.
A leader of the BHP, a group of Markley residents,
said his party wants -the assembly to keep "doing
what's being done now, but with a lot less tension."
"Everyone's too uptight," said Duane Kuizema,
the BHP's presidential candidate. All of the BHP
candidates are new to student government politics,
Kuizema said, a fact he said they are rather proud of.
"WE'RE OFFERING a fresh start," he said, ad-
ding that their party name was chosen "because
we're tired of stupid acronyms." He said his party
would guarantee free Monty Python movies on cam-
pus if his party's candidates are elected.
MSA Elections Director Bruce Goldman said fewer
students have shown interest in the elections this
year. "This year we went out and solicited can-
didates," he said. Despite these efforts, four Univer-
sity schools and colleges still have no candidates on
the ballot to represent them on the assembly. The
schools of Architecture and Urban Planning,
Education, Library Science, and Music have no can-
didates, while the schools of dentistry, medicine,
pharmacy, and public health have only one candidate

College Republicans Club, described
himself as a "well known fighter for
conservative thought on campus."
Fous was appointed to the assembly
after Kevin Ireland resigned last fall.
Ireland, a resident adviser at Bursley,
said he left MSA "because of time
.rTHE REASON I resigned," he said,
- 'was because I wasn't being an active
and contributing member." He said he
felt a responsibility to vacate his seat.
Ireland, who had served on the
assembly since April 1980, said he
thought most students who are active
on the assembly stay through their en-
tire terms. He said in past years "the
people who were really active at the
beginning of the year stayed through
the end of the year."
He added, however, that "certainly
there is going to be a little more
agressiveness (from MSA represen-
tatives) at the beginning of the year."
STEVE HOCHBERG, a former MSA
treasurer, said part of any problem
with retaining the interest of members
was a lack of response from the student
body. 'I think we're addressing the
wrong issues," he said. "MSA offers all
students the opportunity to get in-
volved, and, if they do, then we can ad-
dress the right issues."
Hochberg was reluctant to enunciate
any new policies he thought might be
enacted by the assembly, but Rackham
student George Majoris, an observer of
the assembly, suggested that MSA
might increase student interest by
"having meetings in other places than
just the Union offices."
"People don't realize the scope of
authority ... how much power they
(MSA) have," he continued. "They get
money from everyone."
Majoris was critical of MSA's system
of raising funds through mandatory
dues, which every student is required to
pay to the assembly. He said he
would like to see the assembly funded in
a manner "similar to PIRGIM 's."
Feiger suggested that the commit-
ment of MSA representatives might be
increased if representatives were paid.
However, he said the "true solution" to
many of MSA's difficulties must come
from members "realizing their poten-

Von Bulow found guilty
NEWPORT, R.I.- Claus von Bulow was found guilty yesterday of twice
trying to murder his wife with insulin injections so he would inherit $14
million and be free to marry his lover.
Von Bulow, a Danish businessman who stepped into a world of wealth with
his marriage to utility heiress Martha "Sunny" von Bulow 15 years ago,
could be sentenced to 40 years in prison.
Superior Court Judge Thomas Needham allowed him to remain free on
$100,000 bond pending an April 2 hearing. Defense attorney Harold Price
Fahringer said the conviction will be appealed.
Von Bulow, once an aide to the late oil billionaire J. Paul Getty, chose not
to testify at the 47-day trial, which ended in 36 hours of jury deliberations
over six days.
Floods batter Midwest
Midwestern floods that have dislodged more than 5,500 people chased still
more families from their homes yesterday, while troops guarded wreckage
from a "wild day" of tornadoes that killed five people and injured dozens in
Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas.
Three people have died so far in flooding in Ohio and Indiana.
President Reagan hastily arranged to visit flooded Fort Wayne, Ind.,
where officials have asked for federal disaster aid, which presidential
spokesman Larry Speakes said "would almost certainly be approved."
Gov. William Milliken asked Reagan yesterday for federal emergency
assistance in Monroe County and five other southern counties where flooding
caused millions of dollars in damages and evacuations of more than 1,000
If the request is approved, low-interest government loans would be
available to people in Monroe, Allegan, Bay, Berrien, Genesee and Ingham
Connandos hit Angolan camp
CAMBENO, Angola- Helicopter-borne South African commandos
destroyed a South West Africa People's Organization camp 15 miles inside
Angola, killing 201 black nationalist guerrillas in. the largest cross-border
raid in seven months, South African officials said yesterday.
"We caught them totally withtheir pants down," said Capt. Jan Hougaard,
who led the 45-man commando squad in the raid Saturday against the
SWAPO guerrilla camp.
The South African squad also captured tons of supplies, 90 Soviet-made
AK-47 assault rifles and more than 1,000 grenades and land mines in the raid,
code-named "Operation Super," the South African Defense Force said.
SWAPO has been fighting a 16-year-old bush war in South West Africa,
also known as Namibia, from bases inside Angola in an attempt to oust South
Africa from the disputed territory which it administers in defiance of U.N.
Thousands of Nicaraguans
join military to show support
MANAGUA, Nicaragua- Thousands of Nicaraguans volunteered for
military service yesterday in a strong show of support for the state of siege
imposed to counter feared U.S.-backed guerrilla attacks, officials said.
In a nationwide television address Monday, Daniel Ortega, coordinator of
the three-man ruling junta, announced the state of siege that suspended all
constitutional rights, including freedom of the press. He did not specify if the
30-day measure would be renewed.
The state of siege, a form of martial law, came less than a week after news
reports from Washington said President Reagan approved a $19 million CIA
scheme to oust Nicaragua's leftist government.
In Washington, Presidential Counselor Edwin Meese would not comment
on charges the United States was trying to topple the Nicaraguan gover-
nment but said Washington "is not in the habit of engaging in sinister plots."
