with the writing in the Daily since the
petition drive began, but he warned
that any continuation of "irresponsible
journalism" could warrant further ac-
tion by his committee.
"We were pleased before we came in
here because we saw an improvement
in writing," Sher said. "This is the end
of the petition drive as long as the Daily
SHER SAID rumors that the commit-
tee would go to the Daily's advertisers
if the paper refused to comply with the
petitioners' demands were false. The
goal of the petition drive was to en-
courage critical thinking by the Daily,
"Critical thinking has gone on and
been brought to the surface long before
the petition drive," responded David
Spak, opinion page co-editor.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The En-
vironmental Protection Agency or-
dered General Motors Corp. yesterday
*to recall 861,000 1978 and 1979 model-
year cars to 'fix exhaust emission
The cars are exceeding the federal
standard for nitrogen oxide emissions
of 2 grams per mile.
THE AFFECTED vehicles are 1978
and 1979 Chevrolets with six-cylinder,
200-cubic-inch engines, and 1979
Chevrolets, Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles and
Buicks equipped with six-cylinder, 231-
California vehicles are not covered
by the recall.
In a statement, GM said it was
developing remedies for the exhaust
problems and would notify car owners
when those remedies were developed.
However, government officials said
GM was balking at providing free
repair for cars driven more, than 60,000
"There is a reason behind running
every story," Spak said. "It is not
something we do just to offend people.
A lot more thought is behind the stories
than the petition drive gives us credit
THE COMMITTEE began collecting
signatures at the end of March. The
petition charged that articles printed in
the Daily were sensational; caused an
increase in racial, religious and gender
tensions; and misrepresented the news.
Committee representative Anne
Larkin, president of the Panhellenic
Association, cited a Feb. 1 article about
a woman who was expelled from her
sorority because she had bulimia.
Larkin said the story was sensational,
didn't provide enough background in-
formation on the situation, and
misrepresented the sorority.
Witt said he did not regret the way the
story was handled and added that other
news organizations, such as the
Associated Press and United Press In-
ternational, covered the story in a
OTHER COMMITTEE members said
a Feb. 11 article entitled "Japs: Are
they fact or fiction," which appeared in
Weekend magazine, was destructive
and fostered a stereotyped view of
"Someone who doesn't know
anything about it (Japs) will walk away
from the article prejudiced," said Scott
Schnell, an LSA senior on the commit-
Witt, however, said he believed the
story was not destructive and described
the stereotype and examined why
society uses and accepts the term.

for full-time staff members to train
-counselors and manage the programs,
which AATU has had to struggle to ac-
complish recently. "To run a coun-
seling service, you need more ad-
ministration than the tenants union has
had in the past - you need full-time
staff," Delp said.
AATU CURRENTLY employs Delp
on a part-time salary and 15 volunteers.
The new organizations would share
volunteers, but not funds.
Delp said that the TLRC has not ap-
plied for any specific grants because it
has not yet achieved tax exempt status
from the Internal Revenue Service,
which enables organizations to solicit
In the past, the AATU has concen-
trated on such fundraising activities as
coffee and doughnut sales in the fish-
bowl to raise money, in addition to fun-
ds from the MSA fee, Delp said. Mem-
bership fees also bring money in, but do
not make up the bulk of the tenants
AATU offices on the fourth floor of
the Michigan Union will be open from
12:15 to 4:15 Tuesday through Thursday
next week, and will be reducing their
services after April 14 for the spring
and summer terms.
