The University Recycling Club
Shereen Rothman, LSA senior
and club founder, is hoping to have
a contest between fraternities and
sororities to see which house can
save the most newspapers and pizza
boxes. "The house that saves the
most will win some amount of
money, say $1,000, to be donated
to a charity," Rothman said.
Rothman originally became
interested in recycling on campus
after an internship with the Anti
Arbor Ecology Center last
semester. "I saw a lot of recyclable
resources on campus going to
waste," she said. The money award
will come directly out of the
Ecology Center's increased profits.
According to Rothman, the
group will focus on residence halls,
cooperatives, off-campus housing,
computer centers, and other
academic departments, in addition to
fraternities and sororities.
She said that because the Greek
system contributes heavily to
different charities, she can see no
reason why they would not want to
participate. "Especially when they
see how easy it really is," added
The club will be giving
demonstrations to sorority and
fraternity representatives on how to
preparematerials for recycling so
that each house will have one
person in charge of saving
materials, said Rothman.
Brian Weinert, who coordinates
the recycling program at the
Ecology Center, said the center will
be aiding the University Recycling
Club by making monthly pick-ups
on campus and helping to
coordinate information programs on
Weinert said starting recycling
on campus will make students more
aware of the ecological advantages
of reusing materials instead of
throwing them away. Recycling is
something that people can do
wherever they are, he said, and he
hopes that for some it will become
a way of life.
"Newspapers are definetely the
most popular recycleable resource
in Ann Arbor," said Weinert.
Newspapers are put into 1,500
pound bundles at the Ecology
Center and then are sent to Chicago
where a mill de-inks and then re-

Panel tackles political dissent
(Continued from Page 1)
Councilmembers decided Friday
to utilize "objective observers"
-from the council and the Univer-
'ity's Civil Liberties Board to
eport infractions of the proposed
guidelines. The council has yet to
determine, though, how to punish
-nfractions of the guidelines. It is
considering academic sanctions for
students and official reprimands for
administrators and faculty.
'Our main concern is to rhake
sUre that the system isn't abused,"
said David Newblatt, a student
t thember of the board.
The council has been debating
since September the rights and
.limits of protester- the second
phase of its effort to write a code of
non-academic student conduct. Last
spring, the panel released a discus-
sion draft on how the University
should punish violent crimes.

The council has also progressed
in its effort to stabilize a fluc-

fessor Shaw Livermore was quickly
appointed as the council's new co-
chair after the early resignation of
Prof. Donald Rucknagel.
Members had feared that Ruck-
nagel's resignation would further
hinder progress toward a code.
