list of at least six names submitted by
the editors of the Daily, the Ensian
yearbook, and the Gargoyle humor
magazine. Currier' s name was not on
the list submitted last September.
sBut Shapiro said the bylaw does not
explicitly outline the procedures for
appointing board members to fill a spot
vacated by a resigning member.
"...I REGRET that, quite uninten-
tionally, an appointment to fill a vacan-
cy created by the resignation of a
professional member of the Board went
to an individual not on the list of jour-
nalists proposed by the Daily editors
and without consulation with them,"
Shapiro said in a letter.
The board, a ten-member panel in
charge of the finances of the Daily, the
Insian, and the Gargoyle, met last
bight to discuss the Daily's budget and
publishing plans for the summer Daily.
The Daily had considered boycotting
the meeting to protest the way Currier
was appointed, but decided to attend
because it was too important, accor-
ding to Editor in Chief Bill Spindle.
"ATTHE end of the meeting, in-
coming Editor in Chief Neil Chase

suggested that the board support the
Daily's position in the matter, but
Chairman Charles Eisendrath said the
board should not discuss the matter un-
til its next meeting because "in any
organization you have to set an agenda
and stick to it." The issue was not on the
board's agenda.
"This will not be a five-minute con-
versation. It will be a lengthy conver-
sation, and I think we should do it
justice," he said.
After 15 minutes of discussion about
whether to address the issue, the board
voted 6-3 to postpone the matter until
next month's meeting.
Board member Patricia Montemurri
urged the board to consider the issue,
saying that "the fact that it means so
much to (the students) should mean
something to us."
Student representative- Sam
Slaughter also supported Chase's
request. "It just merits a five-minute
discussion saying, 'yeah, we support
the students,' "he said.
Currier argued that the issue wasn't
important enough to warrant
discussion. "The president's office
made a minor mistake," he said.

said that it was personally approved by
Michael Krabb, the director of Union
Food Services.
In response, Krebs said: "I have no
comment, but I certainly would not
dispute her comments."
Union Director Frank Cianciola said
that he "didn't believe" anyone from
the Union had seen the flyer before it
was printed, but that he "didn't know
that for a fact."
Although Cianciola was convinced
that "a violation did not occur," he said
that the Union may attempt to change
its advertising policy in the future.
If the investigation of the U-Club,
reveals either cooperatiave advertising
or advertising for a particular brand
of beer, a violation report will be sub-
mitted to the state attorney general's
A hearing would then result if the at-
torney general's staff found the
violation to be "reasonable," Marohnic
said. If the U-Club is found guilty, it
could face a maximum fine of $300, or
suspension or revocation of its license.
As to the Club possibly losing its
license after its third violation in less
than a year, Keck said: "It's con-
ceivable but not likely."

Canadian condemns
U.S. acid rain policy

John Roberts, minister of the en-
vironment in Canada during the
Trudeau administration, said yester-
day that there is no help for a solution to
the acid rain problem under the Reagan
Roberts spoke to a crowd of 40 people
at the School of Natural Resources
about the problem of acid rain and the
need to develop an international policy
to deal with the issue.
ACCORDING TO Roberts, the
Reagan administration claims that
there is not enoughk scientific proof
that pollutants emitted in the United
States are linked to acid rain in Canada.
Roberts said, however, that the bulk of
the scientific community is convinced
that the acid rain in Canada is caused
by American power plants.
Roberts said the Carte ad-
ministration began researching the
acid rain problem in 1980 but the effort
was stopped during the Reagan ad-
"There has been no significant
alteration of American policy concer-

ning acid rain," he said, "I am
THE SULFATES emitted from coal
burning plants in the Ohio Valley and
Eastern United States are blown over
Canada and precipitate down onto
Canadian lands, said Roberts. Acid rain
pollutes the Canadian ecosystem,
damages lakes and forests, upsets the
$1 billion Canadian fishing industry,
and the 40 billion dollar forestry in-
dustry, he added.
Roberts, also a former minister of
employment and immigration in
Canada, feels that America is unfairly
polluting Canada and that the
American political system is refusing
to act on acid rain for economic
reasons. The cost of producing elec-
tricity from a coal-powered plant,
which causes acid rain, is cheaper than
cleaner, alternative ways, according to
Roberts has tried to influence the
American government by lobbying in
Washington and speaking to American
media and environmental groups.
