Question: "What

makes LSA Student

Government necessary and legitimate?"'

Lynn Gessner, LSA
freshman: It helps
students give their input
into what they want from
the University. It's a good
idea, but I personally don't
know what their decisions
are. They should make
themselves more open to
student opinion.

Paul Gilleran, LSA
junior: It allows students
to have their say in how
classes should be organized.
I think they represent the
students well; I voted last
year and it seemed
necessary. If only faculty
and administration had
inputs into class structure,
it wouldn't be as effective.

Steven Gold, LSA
sophmore: We need some
sort of representation for
LSA students. If we wern't
represented, how would we
know what's going on with
the administration? It would
be more appropriate if they
voiced themselves more and
were more open. I have no
idea what they do.

Gail Stoddard, LSA
senior: I don't really think
that it's all that necessary.
Even after being here four
years, I don't really know
what they do. They havn't
had a direct effect on me as a

Pete Struck, Lsa
Senior: I have been
pleased that they have given
money to student
organizations, but outside of
that they have had no
obvious impact on student
life. I would hate to see
them go under as they are
another source of student

John Ries, graduate
student: I think it's
legitimate because it's all
we have to represent the
student viewpoint. I think
that the people involved are
concerned with the students'
needs. Without LSA-SG
there is nothing to represent
the students..

Leslie Schwartz, LSA
senior: It's necessary
because the student's voices
should be heard. But it's
hard to get anything done.
Being a part of it you learn
about the system, not just
ours. You learn the frus-
trations and rewards of
working in the system.

Kai Soering, LSA
sophomore: Student
government as a whole is
sort of a farce. It's a nice
exercise to prepare the
students for political life and
the future. But I don't
believe in it personally.
Frankly, the regents sort of
run the show anyway, and
what they say goes.

Andy Meshen, LSA
Senior: I don't think that
it's used as effectively as it
should. There needs to be
more student involvement
on a campus wide basis, not
just a two-party system. It
hasn't affected me person -
ally, but I see a great need
for it.

Teresa Hanna, LSA
freshman: People have
concerns that need to be
heard; it's a fine way of
letting people air out the
issues. A little more
participation from students
would help.

Strike sends thousands home;
GM, Delco Electronics confer
DETROIT-Negotiators met yesterday in an effort to end a Delco
Electronics plant strike that has forced General Motors Corp. to send
thousands of assembly plant workers home, many indefinitely,
company officials said.
About 22,700 workers at plants lacking parts in Michigan,
Kentucky and Missouri were laid off until further notice starting
today, including some who worked partial shifts yesterday, said GM
spokeswoman Laura Joseph.
The strike began Monday when 7,700 workers at a Delco
Electronics plant in Kokomo, Ind., walked off their jobs after
negotiators failed to resolve a dispute over subcontracting of some
jobs and transfer of some radio production to Mexico.
Negotiations were moved to Detroit yesterday so both sides could
have easier access to information they might need, said United Auto
Workers spokesman Bob Barbee.
Kodak to quit S. Africa
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa-Eastman Kodak, citing a weak
economy made worse by apartheid, said yesterday it will withdraw
from South Africa and prohibit its subsidiaries from supplying
products to this country.
The photographic equipment manufacturer is the seventh American
company to announce recently that it is leaving South Africa and the
first of them to halt sales of its products.
Kodak employs 466 people at five sales and service facilities in
South Africa. Ian Guthrie, director of employee information at the
company headquarters in Rochester, N.Y., said 130 are black, 130 of
mixed race, about 20 Asian and the rest white.
Colby Chandler, chairman and chief executive officer, said in a
statement: "Our South African business has been affected negatively
by weakness in the South African economy. We also have no doubt
that the system of apartheid has played a major role in the economy's
Bomb explodes; 35 injured
MANILA, Philippines-A bomb hidden in a shopping bag blew
up yesterday in a department store packed with Christmas shoppers,
injuring about 35 people. A few hours earlier a prominent friend of
Defense Minister Juan Enrile was shot to death in an ambush.
President Corazon Aquino said on television that the escalating
violence was directed at her. She vowed to retaliate once she knows
"which forces are with me."
Police said a homemade time bomb exploded at a ground-floor
counter in the Shoemart Department Store about 7:20 p.m. No group
claimed responsibility, and police reported no arrests.
Hospital sources said about 35 people were treated for cuts and
bruises but no one was seriously injured.
A half-hour before the blast, an unknown assailant tossed a grenade
into the crowded balcony of a movie theater two blocks from the
department store, but the device did not explode.
Nutrition group calls for
federal seafood inspection
WASHINGTON-A nutritional group called yesterday for a federal
inspection program to guard against contaminated seafood, and said
such regulation could help screen out Great Lakes fish tainted with
toxic pollutants.
"Our government is doing next to nothing to protect consumers
from microbiological and chemical contaminants in fish," said Ellen
Haas, director of Public Voice for Food and Health Policy, a non-
profit advocacy group.
A study released by the group said that Americans, dining on fish
in growing numbers because it is a healthy source of protein, are at
the same time at increasing risk from bacterial, viral and toxic
contamination because it is among the least regulated foods.
"We advise consumers to eat fish only with caution-to avoid raw
fish ... to avoid fish from known contaminated waters," Haas said at
a news conference.
Troubled reactor to restart
MONROE, Mich-Detroit Edison Co. expects to restart its Fermi
II nuclear power plant by Dec. 7 and shortly thereafter to increase
power to nearly half capacity, a utility official says.
The plant so far has been limited to testing at 20 percent of
"We have less than one day of testing left at that power level, then
we'll be ready to go to 45 percent," Ralph Sylvia, Edison group vice

president in charge of Fermi II, said yesterday.
The reactor has been shut down since Nov. 8 because air leaking
into a condenser reduced its operating efficiency.
Sylvia told Monroe County commissioners the shutdown should
not affect the utility's May 1 target date for commercial operation.
"When we start up Dec. 7, that condenser problem will have cost
us a month in down time, but will not have cost us a month in our
(commercial operation) schedule," he said.
