LANSING (UPI) - Sen. David
Serotkin (D-Mount Clemens) yesterday
became the second state law maker in
just over a week to be ousted by anti-tax

munities, there were 1,064 votes
favoring ouster and 932 opposed.
WITH 91 of 120 precincts in at press
time last night, there were 19,001 votes
favoring ouster and only 8,585 opposed.
That is 68.9 percent yes and 31.1 percent
Last week, Sen. Phil Mastin (D.
Pontiac) became the first Michigan
lawmaker to be recalled. The ouster of
Serotkin yby tax foes could lead to
Republican control of the Senate.
Voting was described as heavier than
usual in some parts of Serotkin's
SEROTKIN, 44, kept a low profile
throughout the recall campaign,
talking mainly to small groups and
organizing absentee ballot voters.
* So far, Mastin and Serotkin are the
only two who have faced recall elec-
tions, but recall organizers said success
in ousting Mastin encouraged them to

Senate up for grabs. If both vacant
seats are filled by Republicans, the
GOP will take over from the

cession in Lansing, where he had
remained to help fellow Democrats in a

The second to lose his seat.
"From what I understand, the figures
are such that he can't pull it out," he
said. "I think it's a real said thing when
a minority can undo what a majority
did last year," said Serotkin, who
blamed his defeat on "ultra-
conservatives," including his
Republican opponent in last fall's elec-
Dan Powers of the recall campaign
said the results "clearly show that the
people are upset with taxes and the way
things are being run."

was made because faculty members
should deal with course developments.
But Marino said there is no way a
faculty member can take on the office's
job, in addition to teaching.
"IT'S QUESTIONABLE to what degree
a faculty member... is going to be able
to carry on the academic programs,"
said Gus Medina, a temporary research
assistant in the HASSC office.
But in addition to this, Medina said
public awareness of the office will
decrease, "A visible Hispanic unit on
the campus is gone," he said. "Where

workers, say the reorganization of the
unit indicates that the University is not
paying heed to the needs of minorities
"Does the removal of HASSC mean
that the -University doesn't recognize

Hispanic student who asked not to be
"That was all we had and nothing
else," said a Puerto Rican student, who
also asked not to be identified.
"(Steiner) is ignoring minorities."
YESTERDAY, Steiner declined to
comment on why the office's respon-
sibilities will be performed by a faculty
member. He said his decision was a
response to a recommendation made by
the people in charge of HASSC.
But at Campus Meet the Press
yesterday, when questioned by audien-
ce members about the reorganization
plan Steiner said "I really don't want to
talk in detail .
"This is certainly not an effort in any
sense that will save money," Steiner
said, adding that, if anything, the
money channeled into the program

said they were disappointed with the
