AISA officials optimistic for high voter turnout

Despite some last-minute problems,
Michigan Student Assembly election
officials espect a high turnout at this
year's election, which began yester-
They say this year's students are
better informed about the assembly,
since the candidates have publicized
their campaigns extensively and
more students have been reading
about MSA activities owing to the
Daily's increased circulation.
LAST YEAR about 6000 students,
one fifth of the student population,
voted in the MSA elections. It was the
highest turnout in recent years.
This year MSA has tried to set up
more diverse polling sites - including
the Frieze Building, the Law School,
and University Towers.
But the attempt to make voting
more convenient has run into com-
MSA intended to place a polling site
in the basement of the Law Library
last night but was told by Law School
officials yesterday after the site was
publicized that they would not be able
to do so. To make up for the can-
cellation, a new site outside room 100
in the Law Quad will be open from
8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. today.
STAFFING shortages forced the
late opening of the Union polling site
last night, and the cancellation of a
site in the School of Public Health
planned for today.
The house of the Union site for today
have been changed from the after-
noon until the evening although an
exact time was not available at press
The last poll, at the Undergraduate
Library, will close tonight at nine
the shortagees are partly owing to the
volunteer status election workers. In
past years, poll workers were paid.
ONE unexpected success was the
last-minute opening of a polling site
on theDiag which drew many of the
throngs of students who were outside
enjoying yesterday's sunshine. Higer
said there will be another poll on the
Diag today if there are volunteers to
She said she thought the sunny day
may have attractred some people to
vote, especially since many of the
Another change in this year's elec-
tions is that poll workers have been
instructed to ask students passing by
if they want to vote, which Higer said
may encourage more students to vote.
"Some people are shy and need to
be asked," Higer said.
Many students yesterday said they
were voting because they knew people
who were running, or were concerned
about a particular issue, such as the
that has marked this year's cam-
paigning, many of the students voting
were unfamiliar with the issues.
"I think it's an inevitable part of
any political process, but as an infor-
med voter it's the kind of thing you
ignore," said LSA freshman James
Wittenbach, who voted for several
Meadow party candidates, said he
was at first turned off by the party's
use of Opus in its campaign, a Bloom
decided to vote for Meadow after he
had heard their campaign platform.
LSA junior Patty Chin and Molly
Morris said they were swayed to vote
for the Student Rights presidential
and vice presidential candidates after
reading a letter posted by MSA
representatives Tom Marx and
Daniel Melendez-Alvira, which
criticized Meadow party candidate

MSA censures Muenchow and Thompson

The Michigan Student Assembly
went into executive session last night
and passed a resolution demanding
that Meadow party candidates Kurt
Muenchow and Darrell Thompson
apologize for signing a statement
urging their Student Rights opponents
to elaborate on their alleged member-
ship in a "Marxist Group."
The statement, which requested
that all candidates disclose their
"political orientation," was also
signed by members from the

THE POSTER which was seen on
campus as early as eight a.m. yester-
day morning, was posted in the East
Engineering Building, the UGLi, the
Dow Building, and on kioskes in the
central campus area.
The poster read "What you should
know about the Student Rights Party,
But weren't told," and described
Faigel and Wesibrot's alleged
Marxist connections. The bottom of
the poster said "A public service
message by Students Proud of Cam-
pus Knowledge" (SPOCK).
Eric Shapiro, president of SPOCK,
a group against banning technology at
the University, said he designed most
of the posters because "students have
a right to know who they're voting
MSA also passed a resolution last
night to investigate SPOCK.
MUENCHOW denied any in-
volvement with the posters. "I have
nothing to do with it," he said. He ad-
ded that he told all Meadow party
members at a party meeting last
week not to put up posters not seen by
him or his campaign manager.
The poster was declared illegal
yesterday by Marci Higer, MSA Elec-
tions Director and Richard Layman,
an administrative assistant.
The poster was declared illegal
yesterday by Marci Higer, MSA Elec-
tions Director, and Richard Layman,
an administrative assistant. Layman
said the poster was illegal because
"the poster used MSA resources
which was against the constitution
regulations."MSA ordered that the
posters be taken down to protect the
people listed on the form who are not
members of the Student Rights Party.
Even though members of the
Student Rights Party feel that the
Meadow Party is involved with the
posters. Leela Fernandes, a Students
Rights Party member running for
engineering representative, said
Meadow Party member Dave Vogel
taped a poster to the sidewalk and
then proceeded to block Fernandes's
way when she tried to take the poster
Vogel denied the accusation and
said, "I never put any up myself." He
would not comment on whether people
he knew in the party put up posters or
whether the Meadow Party was in-

Football and basketball ticket prices rise
(Continued from Page 1)
BASKETBALL is facing similar
problems. Lorimar Productions,
which agreed to a three-year $4
million deal, failed to sell enough ad-
vertising space and has since disban-
ded its sports programming
The Lorimar problems marked the
second straight year that a network
defaulted on the conference. Last
year the conference lost $5 million
when two separate companies went
bankrupt in the middle of the basket-
In an effort to prevent the recurren-
ce of such problems the athletic
directors have taken power from the
conference's hierarchy. In the future,
television contracts must be approved
by a majority of the directors.
IN ANOTHER move, the conferen-
ce hired William Rasmussen, the
founder of the all-sports cable chan-
nel, ESPN to supervise and negotiate
all television contracts.
Canham said Rasmussen will put
the Big Ten on the right road, but that
the next year will be a difficult one
because the networks have most of
their time slots filled already. He
predicted that Rasmussen will be able
to negotiate a favorable settlement
with CBS for college football because
he said, "our ratings were higher than
ABC's last year."
In addition to the pending deal with
CBS, the conference has already
signed a contract to broadcast games
over the Turner Broadcasting System
and is negotiating a deal with USA
cable network. CBS and NBC are also
committed to limited weekend
ALTHOUGH the conference suf-
fered a big loss over the Lorimar
default, it partly recouped by earning
$320,000 in post season money -te
University's share being $200,000.
Canham said he could put Michigan
on television 20 times a season if he
wanted but didn't want to overexpose
the basketball team.
Canham said the American public
can expect to see a continued flood of
college, basketball games on
television because the costs for the
rights to the games have dwindled so
much over the past few years that
networks only need a small rating to
make a profit. "And they are all
making money," he added.

Thousands of Libyans rallied in

Libya called for death for American

East, reports from the Libyan capital
A DIPLOMAT in Tripoli said no
threats had been made against the
few Americans believed still in the
North African nation, now in the
second day of a military confrontation
with the United States.
Khadafy replied defiantly to U.S.
statements that the American 6th
Fleet naval maneuvers off Libya
would continue until Sunday.
"We also declare that our brave
confrontation wl lalso continue and
that the Jamahiriya (Libya) is not
only defending itself at this mome t,
but the entire Arab nation and its
future," Khadafy was quoted as
saying in a dispatch of the official
Libyan news agency JANA,
monitored in Rome.
THE LIBYAN and news media also
reported that Syrian and Sudanese of-
ficials arrived in Tripoli yesterday for
consultations with Libyan officials.
And a hard-line Palestinian guerrilla
front vowed to attack American
targets throughout the Middle East in
for U.S. "aggression."
