City delays plan to
improve lighting

The Michigpn Daily - Tuesday, Fehcuary 17, 1987-- Page 3
Students unite

By MICHAEL LUSTIG
The Ann Arbor City Council
last night tabled two amendments
requiring improved street and house
lighting in areas of off-campus
student housing, delaying action
until April.
"I am not interested in trying to
delay (the lighting changes)," said
Councilmember Kathy Edgren (D-
Fifth Ward) as she proposed to table
the amendments.
1 Edgren voted to table tile
amendment because of a memo she
received recently from the city's
energy consultant, which pointed
out that different areas of the city
need different-power lights to
provide adequate illumination. She
said further study of the lighting
situation is required before the
council takes action.
One proposal would require
street lights to be installed on
Oxford Road from Geddes to
Washtenaw and on Forest Street
from South University to

Cambridge. The other would require
homeowners in off-campus student
housing areas to illuminate all
entrances and exits to homes,
apartments, and group housing
structures.
A report made by the Off
Campus Crime Commission, led
by Councilmember Seth Hirshorn
(D-Second Ward), proposed the new
lighting plan after several months
of study. Initial installation costs
are estimated to be about $12,300
and annual costs for energy bills
and maintainance are about
$10,700, according to the report.
Hirshorn said, "I am receptive to
the proposal" for tabling, but was
upset that the memo from the
energy committee came as the
council was discussing the
amendments and not before.
He asked all city departments to
comment on the measures before
they are brought up in council
again.

Approximately 60 students
discussed methods of fighting
racism on campus at a forum
sponsored by the Michigan Student
Assembly last night.
The forum was intended to unite
students from all campus minority
organizations to present proposals
for curbing racism to the University
administration, according to Lannis
Hall, LSA junior and chair of the
Minority Affairs Committee for
MSA.
"We need a united front," said
Hall. "We're trying to get all
minority groups together so that
the University doesn't receive ten
different proposals."
Hall planned the forum before
incidents such as the racist flier in
Couzens had taken place. Last
night's forum was the first in a
series of such meetings.
"We don't want to turn this into
anhother testimonial of the racist

.
racism
incidents," Hall said. "Now we need
to propose motions to the
administration to decrease (racism)."
Several students supported the
idea of a required freshman course or
seminar discussing black history
and racism. "I see no reason why
African studies shouldn't be a
required course," Lauren Campbell
said.
The idea of such a course was
promoted last year by the United
Community Against Racism
(UCARe) in response to racial
attacks, but received little response
from University President Harold
Shapiro.
Forum facilitator and Sociology
Prof. Walter Allen encouraged the
students that they could make a
difference in University life. "The
record shows that when we are
mobilized and committed, we are
incredibly powerful people," Allen
said.

Deadly ice
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-A firefighter stands guard as the remains of a
tanker carrying 8,800 gallons of gasoline goes up in smoke. The blaze
erupted after the driver lost control of the tanker as he tried to pass a
slower car on ice covered US 421 yesterday morning.

"It's really the people who have
supported me that made the
difference," Coleman said last
fright. "It is a victory of a lot of
people - not just me." Coleman
has been endorsed by Democratic
leaders, and supported by about 300
campaign workers, many of them
local activists.
Coleman, who co-directs the
Guild House campus ministry, said
her campaign will continue to focus
on human services .and affordable
housing.
Republican Jerry Schleicher won

the Fourth Ward primary with 559
votes, to 441 for Jim Cameron.
Democrat Richard Layman, who ran
uncontested, received 64 votes.
Although the Fourth Ward is
traditionally a Republican
stronghold, Schleicher said he is
not taking Layman lightly. "We
will work hard. We can't
underestimate any opponent," he
said.
In the Fifth Ward, Republican
Phil Spear easily defeated Bob Ferri
and Jeff Gallatin. Spear received
409 votes, to 75 for Gallatin and 42
for Ferri.

es for Apri
Spear, a local realtor, attributed
his victory to name recognition due
to his unsuccessful bid for a council
seat last year. He acknowledged that
he faces "a tough race" against
Democratic incumbent Kathy
Edgren, who won her 1985 race by
1,237 votes.
In yesterday's mayoral primary,
Republican city councilmember
Gerald Jernigan overwhelmingly
defeated Paul Jensen, a perennial
candidate for local offices. Jernigan
took 1,636 votes, to 248 for
Jensen.

McIntosh points out that half of the
