Career Fair reveals alternatives

By KRISTIN STAPLETON
Students who don't want to contribute to the
irresponsibility of many corporations have a wide
range of "socially progressive" careers they can en-
ter instead - that's the message a group of Univer-
sity students said they wanted to convey when they
sponsoredyesterday's Alternative Career Fair in
East Quad.
"We felt there was something needed to help
students plan for careers outside the corporate
world," said LSA senior Paul Peterson, who helped
organize the fair. "This is an attempt to help people
learn the skills needed for finding alternative careers
and hopefully make some contacts."
STUDENTS WHO attended the fair yesterdaywere
able to hear from several speakers who gave advice on
how to find and land jobs in "progressive" fields like
public service. A flyer for the fair defined an "alter-
native career" as one of "honest work without profit
as its primary goal."
The conference gave students an opportunity to
meet with people in such "alternative careers."
Various seminars, on subjects ranging from social

'I think it's something
that's so necessary. It lets
you know there's a whole
sea of possibilities for
jobs. "-Julia Rosenbaum
services to the arts, were offered, and speakers came
from the Ann Arbor area and from areas as far away
as Washington and California.
Lowell Peterson, an Ann Arbor City Council mem-
ber, led a seminar on careers in government. He said
a student shouldn't pick a job just because it will be
financially rewarding. Rather, a job should be per-
sonally rewarding.
PETERSON SAID social change activities are
particularly satisfying because, "although you won't
be rich, you won't be impoverished personally."
Peterson also thought the University should do

more to let students know about alternative career
possibilities. "The University is very susceptible:to
corporate PR,"he said. "Progressive change should
be part of the mainstream of career planning."
One participant at the conference, Julia Rosem-
baum, a University senior, said, "I think it's (the;
fair) something that's so necessary. It lets you know,
there's a whole sea of possibilities for jobs, although
the Univeristy won't let you know that."
UNIVERSITY student Mary Finn, said she atten-
ded the conference because she is concerned about
careers. "I'm going to leave Ann Arbor and I'm
looking for an alternative to a jeb in the private sec-
tor.
"I'm looking for inspiration to try for a career in
public service," she said.
Finn said too many students confine their interests
in the areas of business, engineering, medicine, and
law. The conference was valuable, she said, because
it showed people that "even if they are interested in
those careers, they can work for progressive change,
rather than support the status quo."

a

City election brings issues out into open

(Continued from Page 1)
HUNTER financed his campaign
with about $1,000 in small contributions,
but was still outspent by Gallatin by
close to two-to-one. Hunter emphasized
the need to improve the city's human
services.
The contest in the city's Third Ward,
which includes much of the student
housing southeast of the Diag and many
of the fraternities and sororities on Hill
and Washtenaw streets, is expected to
be close.
Democrat Ralph Ezekiel, who is an
associate University professor of social
psychology, is pitted against
Republican incumbent David Fisher,
who is an assistant vice president of the
Ann Arbor Bank and Trust Company.
EZEKIEL HAS campaigned hard in
the district, spending a whopping $5,000
on his campaign, more than twice the
$2,000 Fisher said he expects to have
spent by tomorrow.

Ezekiel will certainly be relying on
his ties with the University to woo parts
of the ward's heavy student population,
while Fisher said he is counting largely
on the following he has built during his
tenure on the council.
Fisher has focused his slower-paced
campaign on improving the city's basic
services, like the police and fire depar-
tments. Ezekiel, like Hunter, however,
has stressed the need for better human
services. Both are cautious in predic-
ting victory in this "swing ward."
IN THE city's Fifth Ward, which in-
cludes most of the downtown district
and stretches out to include much of the
city's West Side residential area, the
two council hopefuls are agreed on all
of the ballot's six proposals. But the
two-Republican incumbent Joyce
Chesbrough and Democrat Katherine
Edgren-disagree on most other issues.
Chesbrough said her first priority on
city council is long-term planning for

the city's streets and utilities, while
Edgren has stressed providing more
assistance to the city's "neediest and
most vulnerable."
Although Chesbrough is expected to
win another term on the council, some
observers say Edgren's "aggressive"
campaign may give her just the edge
she needs to come from behind and win°
the Fifth Ward seat.
EDGREN HAS clearly outspent
Chesbrough in the race, spending about
$2,500 compared to Chesbrough's
$1,260. And Edgren remains confident
that the hard campaigning will pay off.
"The Democrats have a good chance in
the Fifth Ward this year," she insisted.
The races in the Second and Fourth
Wards are uncontested this year: But
the candidates running in each of the
wards say they have still campaigned,
though just a little, even though they
have no competition.

THE SOLE contender for the city's
Fourth Ward seat, Republican Gerald
Jernigan, said he has not devoted much
time or money to campaigning this
year because he doesn't need to. But, he
adds, the absence of competition has
made the race less exciting for him.
Jernigan, who said he hopes to trim
the size of and waste in city government
when he takes his seat, spent less than
$300 on the campaign trail.
The only candidate in the Second
Ward, which includes the University's
North Campus, spent more energy
campaigning despite the fact that he is
uncontested. The candidate,
Republican James Blow, who also
promised to "eliminate extras" from
government services to keep ,taxes
down, spent about $700 during the cam-
paign, which he said falls below the
$1,000 he raised in contributions.

MSA ticket tax proposal
may be moot, official says

(Continued from Page 1)
programs supporting academic
programs.
HE FEELS that if the academic and
athletic interests of the University are
joined by such a tax, the relationship
would be "not altogether healthy."
Harvey Grotrian, Director of the
University's Financial Aid Office, also
expressed concern about the ties the
surcharge might create between the
academic and athletic portions of the
University.
As a temporary measure to relieve
the tight financial aid funds, "obviously
we could use all the support we can
get," Grotrian said. But, he agreed with
President Shapiro's position. "It would
tend," he said, "to tie academic
programs with athletics," a relation-
ship he says could conceivably cause
problems.
"I'M JUST not sure where it might
lead," he said, "but it (the proposal) is
not inherently bad. I think it speaks
well of student concern for the needs of
other students, whether they receive
financial aid or not."
Grotrian thought that even though
ticket sales, especially for football,
have almost always been high, the
athletic department could be unreliable
as a source of financial support. "What
happens if there is an exceptionally bad
year for ticket sales? If we relied on
those funds and they weren't there?
What would we do then?" Grotrian
asked.
The other ballot question on this
week's election ballot seeks to deter-
mine student opinion on the boycott of
Nestle products advocated by certain
campus groups. The question was spon-
sored by PIRGIM, and asks students
whether the University should boycott
Nestle products to protest' what
PIRGIM has termed Nestle's "im-
moral" marketing practices.

PIRGIM officials say they opposed
marketing techniques used by Nestle in
selling infant formula in developing
countries. They say the formula's use
has been linked to the deaths of a num-
ber of infants in these countries.
ACCORDING to a PIRGIM official,
Nestle does not provide enough infor-
mation to the mothers to whom the
formula is distributed, and that as a
result children die of malnutrition.
In a recent letter to the Michigan
Daily, however, R.D. Pagna, president
of the Nestile Coordination Center in
Washington, denied any wrongdoing on
the part of the Nestle Corporation.
"A short time ago, Nestle announced
that it is unilaterally implementing the
World Health Organization's Recom-
mended Code for the marketing of in-
fant formula," he wrote.
He said that Nestle was the only
major infant formula manufacturer to
announce its support for the aim and
principles of the WHO Recommended
Code. He claimed that Nestle has a
"Tradition of industry leadership and
cooperation with the health and
medical community."
Last July, PIRGIM and MSA laun-
ched a campaign asking the Michigan
Union to join the boycott. They asked
that all Nestle products be removed
from the vending machines and from
the Union Store.
Frank Cianciola, director of the
Union, honored the boycott, but said
that the Union did not make a political
statement. "We're not a political
organization," he said. "The students
who were buying products stopped
buying Nestle products. They boycotted
Nestle. We stopped carrying Nestle
products due to the student desire to see
them discontinued."

robbery, she was called
