decided to join the protest.
"I THINK IT'S important for men to
support women in their struggles as
well as women supporting women," he
said.
Canadian Velvet has advertised on
the billboard owned by Central Adver-
tising of Jackson for 20 years, Kramer
said. Since then, it has been the target of
protesters at least 10 times, Kramer
said.
RISE, however, wants to put a stop to
the protests. Group members have
been collecting signatures protesting
the billboard as sexist and will take
them to Central Advertising in an effort
to persuade the company to take the
billboard down.
THE SIGN was painted recently with
the slogan "Objects never, women
forever, Women RISE."
Jennifer Akfirat, an LSA senior, and
Mary Jane Emanoil, a city resident,
were arrested and charged with
malicious destruction of property in
that incident.
A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for
April 9.
RISE members said they will attend
the hearing in support of the two
women. They said they will also bring
the signatures they have collected
which protest the advertisement.
"We want to submit the signatures as
evidence in the trial," Kramer said.
At one point during yesterday's
protest, six of the picketers climbed on-
to the rooftop billboard. Police arrived
and read the demonstrators the
trespassing act, after which the
protesters climbed down off the adver-
tisement.

Carolyn Henry, an LSA junior, offers pizza to her niece Michelle Simmons. But Michelle, like many of the li' siblings up
this weekend, looks like she's holding out for soft serve ice cream.
Students welco-me lii' siblings to
fun-filled weekend on campus

(Continued from Page 1)
Have Fun. And I'm having fun," she
proclaimed with a smile.
"IT'S HARD to come up with things
to do with your little brothers and
sisters on yourown," Woronoff says.
Mary Ann Winowiecke, a sophomore
in Mary Markley, agrees. In the hour
her six-year-old brother had been in
town, they had completed "the junk
food circuit - J.B. Chips, Steve's Ice
Cream, McDonald'S."
The full weekend schedule made it
easier to entertain the young visitors,
but some students and their siblings
had more creative plans.
EIGHTEEN-year-old Joe Tancreti,
visiting his sister, a sophomore in West
Quad, wanted to go to a bar and "meet
some co-eds." But their 12-year-old

brother, Mike, was too young for most
bars. 'Three other people have come to
me and asked me babysit their little
sibs so they can go out," said Joe's
sister. "But we're going out together,
tonight."
WEST QUAD freshman Steve Zimmer
decided to "sit around in my room and
play quarters" with his ninth grade
sister.
For many students, like sophomore
Dave Berg, the weekend was a break
from the usual routine. "It's a nice
change from just seeing 20-year-olds,"
he said.
"I wish I had a little sister or
brother," said sophomore Gloria Cran,
dell and watching the siblings. "It's
goodto see kids around who aren't just
college students. It's refreshing."

Oldenburg said she hopes to expand
the program to serve more people next
year.
'It's a huge success," said Woronoff,
who had been preparing the weekend
since January. "We're all really
pleased."

Ark. teachers take tests

education section, said after most of the
teachers had completed two sessions of
testing.
VENTERS SAID earlier he thought
90 percent of the state's teachers 28,000
public school teachers would take the
test despite the boycott. Last night,
however, he siad the figure would top 90
percent.
The Arkansas Educational Skills
Assessment Test was mandated by the
Legislature during a 1983 special
session on education. The law was
enacted at the behest of Gov. Bill Clin-
ton and his wife, Hillary, who led
development of better education stan-
dards for Arkansas with a $150 million
sales tax increase for education.
The state will not renew a teaching
certificate for any teacher who doesn't
pass the test by June 1987. Teachers
have four more chances to pass and can
get remedial help in the meantime.
Clinton said almost all teachers would
pass.
THE AEA conducted three large
rallies against the test, printed
material for a boycott committee, and
predicted that 8,000 teachers would stay
away. An hour after testing began, no
boycotting teachers had showed up at
AEA offices, and boxes of donuts went
untouched. "I guess they're sleeping
in," said AEA staff member Don Mur-
phy.
A Little Rock judge ruled Friday in
an AEA suit that the test law was con-
stitutional.
Joking and laughter mixed with ner-
vousness and anger as teachers
gathered to take the test.
AT OLE MAIN High School in North
Little Rock, teachers went to their test
at the same time students went to take
the Scholastic Aptitude Test. "I'm glad
I don't have to take the teacher test," a
pupil told a teacher, who replied that
the SAT would be harder.
POLICE"
NOTES
Man stabbed
In what Ann Arbor police called an
"altercation between acquaintances,"
a 19-year-old man was stabbed in the
back and chest late Friday evening at
the Maynard House Apartments on 400
Maynard Street.
The victim identified as Brian For-
sythe by a hospital spokeswoman who
asked not to be named was reported to
be in good condition at 'U' hospital last
-1-t.

At Hot Springs, some teachers put the
letters U and P beside their names as
they registered - "under protest."
John Polk, president of the Hot Springs
Classroom Teachers Association, wore
a "Testbuster" T-shirt. He said he was
taking the test on the advice of AEA
lawyers because his teaching cer-
tificate expires in 90 days.
Some Fayetteville teachers wore T-
shirts that said "You'vebeen fooled!!
This is a waste of my time and energy
and your money." The testing was
projected to cost $1.4 million.
