Educating students on the extent
and complexity of hunger is the am-
bitious task of the University World
Hunger Education Action Committee.
Most University students have
come in contact with the 10-member
organization during its annual Fast
for World Harvest Day, when students
in dorms around campus are asked to
forego a day's meal to fight world
hunger.
LAST YEAR'S fast raised more
than $7,000, which went to Oxfam
America and soup kitchens in Ann
Arbor and Detroit.
Mindy Williams, co-coordinator of
the committee, said even after the
media coverage that events like Live
Aid to Africa gave to world hunger,
people are still not aware of the

causes of the problem.
"The media coverage of hunger is
waning, yet we still have not had any
clear dialogue on its solutions. It is not
a problem as simple as over-
population, as many think, because if
it was, they could put an end to it,"
Williams said.
LAST THURSDAY, the Committee
sponsored a speech by Frances Moore
Lappe, a leading world hunger expert,
to give students an insight into the
depth of the problem.
In Lappe's latest books, Now We
Can Speak, a Journey Through the
New Nicaragua and What Difference
Could a Revolution Make?, she and
her co-author Joseph Collins, stress
that food producers affect the amount
of food available to a nation. Political

leaders make a difference in how food
is distributed, the two experts say.
"After the Samoza regime was
overthrown, Nicaraguans started
growing greater amounts of basic
foods which weren't grown before,
because the great Samoza plantations
which grew cash crops were being;
broken up with the Sandanista's land
reforms," Williams said.
In addition to testifying before
congressional committees and the
United Nations on an assortment of
hunger-related problems, Lappe co-
founded the Institute for Food and
Development Policy, a non-profit
research organization which acts as a
watchdog on hunger and hunger-
related problems and has more than
25,000 members in more than 50 coun-

tries.
"There are very few people who are
working specifically aboutwworld
hunger who can bring so many dif-
ferent people together, because she
does not analyze it as a one-issue
problem," Williams said. "A year
ago, having her come to speak was
kind of a pipedream."
In her speech last Thursday, Lappe
discussed human rights abuses in
Nicaragua, saying she put the human
rights abuses of the Sandinistas in the
context of the Contra rebels' abuses.
The World Hunger Education-
Action Committee will be par-
ticipating in a learn-in on domestic
hunger at East Quad this weekend, in
cooperation with the Interfaith Coun-
cil for Peace.

Aquino may intervene in U.S. base strike

MANILA, Philippines (UPI) -
President Corazon Aquino pledged
yesterday to intervene in a 10-day-old
strike by 24,000 workers at strategic
U.S. military bases and admitted the
pickets are violating a U.S.-Philippine.
treaty.
Subic Bay Naval Base Cmdr. Rear
Adm. Edwin Kohn announced he will
divert a U.S. Navy amphibious
assault group headed for a 15-day
liberty stop at Subic unless strikers lift
their blockades and return to work by
this morning.
"I HAVE until tomorrow morning
to make a decision...or I must, by
necessity, have the Seventh Fleet
Commander divert the ships," Kohn
said in a U.S. Armed Forces television

broadcast from Subic, the sprawling
logistics and repair center of the
Seventh Fleet, 50 miles north of
Manila.
The 4,000 soldiers aboard the five-
ship navy assault group would boosi
earnings of Subic nightclubs, taverns
and other businesses by an estimated
$100,000 a day, a Navy spokesman
said.
U.S. negotiators and Philippine
union officials scheduled a fifth round
of talks at a Philippine-U.S. Joint
Labor Committee meeting in Manila
today in a effort to end a deadlock in
the longest walkout ever against U.S.
bases.
More than 100 Philippine soldiers

The gates at Clark, home of the 13th

McGlothlin said low yearbook sales
to the student body prompted her to
approach the administration about
putting the yearbook on the SVF.
"WHEN I look at a campus of 40,000
and yearbook sales of only 2,300 to
2,400, it seems to me that the yearbook
is not reaching its potential," she
said.
Bill Marsh, editor of the 1986 En-
sian, said the new system will in-
crease sales by at least 50 percent,
and may even double them.
McGlothlin predicts that another
1,000 books will be sold, and said sales
at one school quintupled when they
went to asimilar system.
Marsh and McGlothlin warned,
however, that projections are only
speculation.
Marsh said getting the yearbook on
the SVF is not a new idea. An attempt
by the Ensian staff three years ago to
implement a similar system failed,
because the space on the SVF was oc-
cupied by the Public Interest Resear-
ch Group in Michigan form and the
religious preference survey. Neither
will appear on the latest SVF.
MARSH and the 1987 Ensian Editor
Rebecca Cox both support the idea,
but are concerned that the increased
revenue from yearbook sales might
be used to subsidize the financially
troubled Michigan Daily, rather than
to pay Ensian staff members or buy
new darkroom equipment.

Along with the campus humor
magazine, The Gargoyle, the Ensian
and The Daily are financially con-
trolled by the Board for Student
Publications. Under current Board
policies, the profits and losses of all
three publications are shared in a
common pool.
The Daily is budgeted for a $184,000
deficit this year, while Marsh expects
the Ensian to gross $10,000 to $20,000.
But Dawn Willacker, The Daily's
business manager said The Daily
deficit will probably be $20,000-30,000
less than the budget prediction.
THE ENSIAN grossed more than
$21,000 on the 1985 yearbook.
McGlothlin said subsidizing The
Daily was not her main concern in
initiating the SVF distribution
system.
"My main concern is that the
publications the Board for Student
Publications oversees should prove
themsleves viable," McGlothlin said.
"and if something is a popular item it
will make more money."
Former Daily Editor in Chief and
Ensian Associate Editor Neil Chase
said, that while he generally supports the
move, he is concerned that the deal
was cut mainly between McGlothlin
and the University administration.
"I didn't like the way the students
were left out," he said. "If you let the
professionals do everything, you don't
have a student publication anymore."
