ACCORDING TO Sudarkasa, the

difficult than recruitment because

Sudarkasa has recently sent out a
questionnaire to 3,000 students,
minorities and non-minorities. She
also expressed desire to form a group
of students who will help with the
publication of such a report. She said
she hopes the questions will provide
her with student input.
She and the Michigan Student
Assembly have encountered difficulty
in defining exactly what a student

establish, will entail.

Wolfe parodies college athletics
By MATTHEW BENSON
Three Ann Arbor ministers yester-
day taped copies of a petition regar-
ding U.S. Policy in Central America,
signed by nearly 1,000 local residents,
to Congressman Carl Pursell's office
The petition, which has been cir-
culating for about two weeks, asks
that an "Ordinance Establishing
Initiatives for Peace in Central
America" be put to a city-wide vote in
April. If passed, the ordinance would
require the city clerk to notify local
legislative representatives that the
citizen's of Ann Arbor oppose military
aid to Central America, and support
the right of self-determination for
REVS. JIM LEWIS, Don Coleman,
and Nadean Bishop, who represent
the coalition for Peace in Central
America which organized the petition
drive, said they posted 95 pages of
signatures on Pursell's door as a
symbolic re-enactment of Martin
Luther posting his 95 theses for
reformation on a church door in 1517.
The group said the action was an ef-
fort to show Pursell (R-Ann Arbor) the
support they are receiving from other
Ann Arbor residents.
Pursell, however, was in
Washington yesterday, and two of his
staff members inside the office did not
come to the door when Lewis and

things that others find very

Following his comic monologue,
Wolfe spoke about his upcoming
novel Bonfire of the Vanities. Bon-
fire is Wolfe's first novel.

glasses, saying that he was going to
read from the manuscript. He
never did, choosing instead to
describe several characters, ex-
plaining one scene with bravado.

The group must gather almost 4,000
signatures by Jan. 6 to get the
proposal on the ballot.
As he was prepared to finally read
a scene, he announced that his time
was up and proceeded instead to a
question and answer session.
"I was using the threat as a prop,"
Wolfe said. "I was baiting the

SUMMING UP the scene, Wolfe
said, "Hell hath no fury like a
husband whose wife cuts him off
from his true lust. And if she ac-
tually catches him, the anger
recedes and he drowns in a nearby
pond of sentimental guilt."
Speaking about the pitfalls he
discovered in writing a novel, he
said, "We don't live in a plausible
age. What if twenty years ago
someone wrote that small groups of
armed people could freeze the world
by taking over old people's cruises,
dusty embassies, or airplanes? He
would have been scoffed at."

The assembly defines constituent
contact as sending out mailings to
constituents, sponsoring discussions
with students, and forming liasons
with individual school or college
MSA is also planning two ballot
questions that will ask students
whether they approve of the Board of
Regents imposition of a mandatory
fee for students to fund the Univer-
sity's computer expansion.
THE REGENTS in September
voted to charge all students $50 next
term and 100 each term thereafter to
nearly triple the number of computers
around campus. But MSA members
Steve Heyman thinks the decision was
made without sufficient student input.
Heyman, who chairs MSA's
Legislative Relations Committee,
said the University rushed the fee to
the regents, forcing "students to pay
the price for the University's poor
"Because the Administration con-
trols the information at this Univer-
sity we're at their mercy when they
want our input," Heyman said.
ALTHOUGH HE is not opposed to
the concept of a computer fee,
Heyman said he will attempt to per-
suade the regents to postpone next
term's fee if enough students vote for
more input in University computer
Douglas Van Houweling, the
University's Vice-Provost for infor-
mation technology and the man who
presented the computer fee plan to the
regents, said yesterday the Univer-
sity's Executive Officers will "pay
close attention to what the students
tell us, but that doesn't necessarily
mean that we'll do what they want."
Van Houweling acknowledged that
the process was hurried, but he said
that waiting any longer to approve the
computer fee would have dealt a
-serious blow to the University's
He pointed to the Computer Policy
Committee, a student committee that
will be formed within the next several
weeks as an example of student input
into University computer policy.
"I've been interested in student in-
put from the very beginning, and for-
ming this committee is the best way to
do this," Van Houweling said.
