RHA uses
funds for
Several members of the
Residence Halls Association will
travel to Canada a week from Sat-
urday using RHA funds, officials
said last night.
The association is going on the
"retreat" to promote unity within
the group, said RHA President
Peter Samet, an LSA senior.
In a weekly meeting last night,
officials announced that RHA will
finance part of the trip to London,
Ontario, where 10 to 15 members
:of RHA will stay in a resort hotel.
'The travelers will be expected to
pay for their own food, but the
;group will probably rent a car with
,RHA funds, officials said.
THE RHA will pay about $12
for each person-but no more than
:$100 total -including the rental
;car fee, according to Samet's
Residence Halls Association
; member Kate Sislin, an LSA soph -
omore, said, "We do that every
year. It's a really big thing."
Last night's meeting, attended
by representatives from most
residence halls, is a forum for
representatives to review residence
hall policies, report on activities,
and to raise and allocate funds.
Samet said most of the money
for the trip will come from outside
fundraisers, such as carpet and
newspaper sales, and not from the
$10,000 that the residence halls
allocate to the association. "It's
money that we raised on our own,"
he said. "It's not money from
students' pockets."
st"We like to do these things
occasionally," he said.
Samet said the excursions make
the RHA more cohesive and
"promote a sense of unity." He
added that this type of trip is
common among other University
organizations who use allocated
money, and that no one has ever
r questioned the appropriateness of
using the association's funds for
private functions.

SAID, Effective

The LSA Student Government
(LSA-SG), an organization that has
not been very active in recent
months, has announced that it will
be holding its annual elections
Nov. 18 and 19. Candidates met
with election directors Paul
Josephson and Marci Higer last
night to set down rules and regu-
lations for the upcoming election.
Both the SAID (Students for
Academic and Institutional Develo-
ment) party and the very recently
formed "Effective" party filed slates
of candidates for president, vice
president, and the 15 executive
committee spots.
SAID only has 10 executive
committee candidates on its slate,
and Effective has 11. Four
independents will also be running
for the executive committee.
which was formed so recently that
party candidates were introducing
themselves to each other minutes
before the meeting began, will try,
according to presidential candidate
Joe Forcier, "to make LSA-SG an
effective student government.
People aren't hearing what's going
on. We want to make it more
LSA sophomore Bill Gratsch is
running for the vice president's spot
for the Effective party.
SAID, a dominant force on the
LSA-SG since the party was formed
in 1979, is posting a slate com-
prised of seven incumbent executive
committee members, two of whom
are the party's presidential and vice
presidential candidates.
"We feel one of the most
important things is to increase

student awareness that there is a
student government so we can be
more aware of their concerns," said
SAID presidential candidate John
Pantowich, who had no specific
goals in mind at the time. LSA
sophomore Michael Nelson is
running for vice president on the
SAID ticket.
JON KOVACS, an inde-
pendent vying for an executive;
committee spot, is focusing his
campaign on restructuring the
political science program at Mich-
igan. He said that at Michigan,
"The political science program is
too cold, too impersonal, and too
Kovacs compared it with that at
Michigan State University, saying
that there the program is more
tightly knit. "It's like a school
within a school," he said.
Current LSA-SG Vice President
Michael Rolnick told the candi-
dates: "LSA-SG is only as much as
you put into it or are willing to put,
into it."p
Rolnick mentioned that the only
way things will get accomplished is
by "individual effort." He cited a
case last year when a member2
dissatisfied with the large gradua-
tion ceremony was able to persuade
the political science department to
have a small ceremony for its
graduating concentrators. ;
In addition, Josephson, a former
president of the Michigan Student
Assembly, said that LSA-SG
"focuses on non-ideological issues
concerning LSA."
In addition to Kovacs, Jeff
Chamberlain, Rick Jones, and
Meghan Vesel are vying for seats as

may not seem too difficult. But for
students uncertain of "life after
college," the task may be one of the
most trying and painstaking at the
Nolan Feintuch, a Residential
College junior majoring in anthro-
pology, said the University's pres-
sure to choose has varied effects
between students.
"FOR SOME, it's good that
they place pressure so that the
student can get organized, but for
others, it's hard to know what
academic goals they want to
achieve," he said.
Feintuch picked his major as an
intellectual endeavor rather than out
of concern for his future job
security, but he said he is still
confident of "success" after college.
"If you know what you want to
do, you can achieve it. The
individual is more important than
the major in achieving success,"
Feintuch said.
David Brown, an engineering
junior, said choosing a concen-
tration is just as difficult for
engineering students as it is for
those in LSA.
"ALTHOUGH I have declared
a major, I'm far from certain that
it's the one I want... If you don't
have a wider career plan or a general
goal, choosing a major will be
difficult, especially with the
University pressuring you to decide
soon," Brown said.
That pressure may be necessary
in order to avoid problems for
students later on, according to

Charles Judge, director of LSA
Academic Counseling. Judge said
the requirement helps students help
Procrastinators or students who
ignore the request may find
themselves in trouble. "If they
wait until their senior year and it
turns out that they haven't taken a
prerequisite course or are lacking in
some other areas of their
concentration, there's very little we
can do," said Judge.
But Laura Schoenow, an Asian
Studies major, said counseling
services can't help much unless the
student has specific goals.
MUCH OF THE difficulty in
choosing a major may stem from
uncertainty of career choices and the
job market. With the college
student of the 1980s becoming
increasingly concerned with getting
a job and financial security, many
undergraduates pick a major that
will increase their chances at
getting into a "hot" career.
Schoenow said this is true of
many students. "There aren't many
people here who choose majors
because of genuine interest in the
subject. Most of the students pick
majors that will give job security
and financial success," she said.
The job market, however, should
only be one criterion in choosing a
major. In four years, today's "hot"
career may be glutted, said Deborah
Orr May, director of the
University's Office of Career
Planning and Placement.

Ford Aud. to be razed
for Detroit aquarium

DETROIT (AP) - Ford Aud-
itorium, home of the Detroit
Symphony Orchestra along
Detroit's riverfront, will be torn
down and replaced with a
multimillion-dollar aquarium, the
city's development chief said
"That's our site for the
aquarium," said Emmett Moten,
director of the Community and
Economic Development
Department. "We're going to build
this thing come next year."
The auditorium was built 30

years ago, financed by area Ford
Motor Co. and Lincoln-Mercury
dealers, the Ford family and the city
of Detroit. It is owned by the city
and leased annually to the
Moten said the symphony would
have to find a new home, possibly
at Orchestra Hall or the Fox
MOTEN said the site is ideal
for the aquarium because of its
location on the riverfront, close to
parking, restaurants, Hart Plaza and
the Renaissance Center.
