lose $75
in pay
monthly
By MARK LANDIS
University staff and teaching
assistants are making about $75 less a
month this year, because Congress ad-
journed for its Christmas recess
without re-enacting a law which makes
tuition waivers non-taxable.
The 1,700 graduate TAs only pay two-
thirds of in-state tuition, and the
University waives the other third as
part of their contract. But now TAs
must pay taxes on the tuition costs the
University covers.
THE GRADUATE EMPLOYEE
Organization, which considers the
tuition waiver one of the most impor-
tant parts of the current contract, will
fight the tax withholding, said GEO
Vice President Jane Holzka.
"Our lawyers advise us that the
change in the withholding means that
we can go in and bargain with the
University again because (the tax)
changes the terms of the contract;" she
said.
The union will hold a general mem-
bership meeting tonight to decide what
course of action to take.
"WE DON'T WANT to renegotiate
the whole contract.. but we would like
to not see our members suffer so
much," Holzka.said.
The University believes that the tax
withholding problem cannot be
resolved by negotiations between the
union and the University.
"This is not between the GEO and the
University," said Dan Gamble,
manager of compensation and staff
relations. "This is between the Federal
government and the University as an
employer."
GAMBLE SAID HE hopes Congress
will re-enact the law that makes the
waiver non-taxable. "As soon as we
find out that some kind of law has been
passed, then we can get that money
back in the hands of the students," he
said.
But for some graduate students, like
English TA Chuck Wasserburg, the loss
of that $75 is already being felt: "I have
five dollars in my account, and I just
got paid," Wasserburg said.

By ANNE MANCOUR
It's more expensive than a card, less fattening than a box
of chocolates and guaranteed to bring a smile to your
sweetheart's face on Valentine's Day.
For $20 four members of the University's Men's Glee Club
will put on their tuxedos and tails to deliver a rose and a song
to your current flame.
YESTERDAY, Glee Club members kicked off a four-day
campaign to peddle their Valentine's Day services to studen-
ts passing through the fishbowl.
The men's group started the Valentine's Day serenades
last year and made about 50 deliveries, said Glee Club
business manager Douglas Bond. He said he expects the
number to be higher this year.

Last year "a surprising number of girls were requesting
(the singing Valentines) for guys," Bond said. And several
guys last year sent singing Valentines home to their moms,
Bond said.
For timid students who fear the quartet of tuxedo-clad
singers would embarass their sweetheart, the Glee Club
troops will also deliver a phone Valentines for only $5.
Although last year Glee Club members tried to memorize
personal love messages, the men will stick with standard
favorites this'year such as "Let me Call you Sweetheart,."
Memorizing different lyrics proved too difficult with the
large number of orders, Bond said.
Profits from the singing Valentines will be used to fund a
Glee Club concert tour to Texas this Spring said Bond.

Panel debates cruise missiles in Holland

(Continued from Page 1)
nalist Michael Betzold.
Bosscher's position was sharply
criticized by Axelrod, a supporter of the
Michigan Alliance for Disarmament.
"EUROMISSILES have little to do
with defense, deterrence, or peace,"
Axelrod said. "The purpose of the Per-
shing, Cruise, the MX, and the Trident
missiles is to win a nuclear exchange."
Axelrod praised the Dutch peace

movement for its opposition to the
government's stance on Euromissiles.
"Europe is unlucky enough to be a
geographically good location for a first
strike weapon. We should congratulate
the Dutch for resisting U.S. efforts to
deploy these weapons.".
Blaker, a former deputy assistant to
the secretary of defense, who is on sab-
batical to teach a University class on
international security, defended the

U.S. actions saying, the Europeans
wanted the deployment of Cruise
missiles."
Blaker said even if the Dutch did
reject the missiles, he thinks
deployment will continue in the other
Western European countries, because
it is unlikely to have any effect on the
Soviet Union's continuing strategic ar-
ms buildup.

RA hopefuls compete for jobs

(Continued from Page 1)
Candidate Kevin Riley, an LSA
sophomore, said he is excited about the
chance to -become more involved with
people, but he is also somewhat skep-
tical about some applicants who want
the position for "something to pad their
resume with. "
I'D LIKE to think I'm good RA
material, but (the application
procedure) is going to be tough.
Mistakes are going to be made along
the way," he said.
For some RAs, the job has brought
tensions and responsibilities they are
happy to leave behind. "You instantly
lose your private life, said LSA senior
Lauren Wohl, an RA in Couzens.
RAs must also try to strike the
delicate balance between being both a
friend and a disciplinarian to students
on the hall.
"YOU HAVE TO be the bad guy, and
you don't want to be the bad guy," said
LSA junior Laurie Clement, an RA in
Couzens.

Langer agrees that the .disciplinary
side is "one of the weaker parts of the
job - especially enforcing the drinking
policy."
But Engineering senior Elisa Mendel,
a resident director at Bursley, has no
regrets about her experiences as an
RA. "I felt like I was putting something
back into the University that I had got-
ten out as a freshman," she said.
Despite the large number of ap-
plicants who apply for the spots, the
Housing Office is also advertising the
openings outside the state this year.
"We've already gotten 27 postcards
back from 12 different states, and we're
very pleased with that," Coady said.
"We'd like to bring in new blood and
bring in a lot of new ideas."
The application deadline for resident
advisors is Feb. 16.

Correction
A letter endorsed by the Michigan
Student Assembly Tuesday night
criticized the University's proposed
student code for non-academic conduct.
The lead paragraph to an article that
appeared in yesterday's Daily may
have mis-led some readers to believe
that the letter attacked the idea of a
code for student non-academic conduct
rather than the University's specific
proposal.
