Plaque dedicated
for crash victim

Stock prices soar
to 1000-point mark

; 4,



On Oct. 11, 1980, University
sophomore Jodi Spiers was killed in a
head-on auto collision with a wrong-
way driver.
Yesterday, exactly two years after
the accident, Spiers was honored with a
memorial plaque dedication ceremony
at the Michigan Union.
"When she was killed many people
were interested in keeping her name
;live," said Margaret Talmers,
*president of LSA Student Government
and Spiers' roommate during their
freshman year.
"SHE WAS very involved in social
change and enlightenment at the
Jniversity as well as outside," Talmers
The gold plaque was placed in front
of the Sweet Gum Tree, which was
planted in her memory outside the
Union shortly after her death.
In addition to the plaque, a memorial
;fund has been set up in her memory.
The fund is directed by a five mem-
ber board to lend money to groups in
the Ann Arbor community working on
social projects. -
The fund has helped groups such as
Women Take Back the Night pay for the
shirts they wore in their April protest
against rape. "We provided them the
seed money to raise the funds," said
Jody Spitz, a board member.

"SHE SAW that compassion is a
higher ordering principle, and was
willing to reachout and take advantage
of what the broader community has to,
offer, not just the school," said Steve
Katz, a cousin of Spiers and a LSA
Spiers was a member of the Board of
Directors for the Public Interest
Research Group in Michigan. She
helped write the original Union Char-
ter, and was one of the founders of Sound
Stage - a coffee house at the Union.
Spiers was also involved in the
Washtenaw Committee Against
Registration and the Draft and the Ann
Arbor Tenant's Union.
"She was everywhere," said Dale
Cohen, director of the Tenant's Union.
I will not let my schooling get in the
way of my education,' I think that was
her motto," Cohen said.
"She was so involved with the Union
that we wanted to put something up
around the building in her mlemory. A.
living thing," said Marcia Barton, a
1977 graduate from the University who
worked with Spiers at PIRGIM.
Spitz, who also worked with Spiers at
PIRGIM, said the plaque would be
something that people can "relate to."
"It was a way of people knowing -
besides us-what Jodi Spiers did to our
lives," Spitz said.

Claiming to offer a "real change" to
the voters of Michigan, Libertarian
gubernatorial candidate Dick Jacobs
told a political science class yesterday
that he was the only alternative for
people fed up with the "empty
promises" of the two major parties.
While admitting that he is a dark hor-
se in the election, Jacobs said he thinks
the people will recognize the need for a
change and elect him in November. He
was also optimistic about the fact that
the Libertarian Party has 100 can-
didates running for state offices this
year, as opposed to the 35 in 1980.
BECAUSE Jacobs is opposed to
public funding of campaigns, he
refused to accept government money or
advertise on TV, he said. He also
claims to have walked 19,000 miles
across Michigan in his attempt to con-
tact voters.
Calling for less government
regulation and reduction in taxes on
businesses, he said, "I feel what is good
for any business, big or small, is good
for America."
Jacobs' pro-.business stance prom-
pted questions from the students about
environmental problems such as toxic
waste dumps. He said businesses
should be responsible for payment of
any damages to public health which
result from their industrial activities.
STUDENTS expressed some surprise
about the Libertarian Party's op-
position to the draft. Jacobs explained
that they are philosophically against
the draft because "conscription is a
form of slavery outlawed jn our Con-
Jacobs also said that he was per-

sonally against abortion, but would not _____________________
work to make it illegal. "As governorm am
of Michigan, I would respect the right of
the woman to choose, because she may
have entirely different morals than
I have," he said.
Sophomore Jefferson Faye, who SATRDA
heard Jacobs speak yesterday, said he
found the candidate very straight for-
ward. 'I think some of the changes he
has in mind are a little far-fetched," he
Jane Marks, an LSA senior, said she
thought Jacobs was interesting, but she
didn't know "how he would deal with all*,
the chaos of changing the system."
