Students protest racism

the pressure up for solutions."
Also at yesterday's meeting,
_more than 100 students crowded
} into the Regents' room to keep that
pressure on. During the public
comments section of the meeting,
students from the United Coalition
Against Racism spoke out against
racism on campus. They played a
tape of racist jokes which were aired
)Qver University-supported campus
radio station WJJX on Feb. 4.
r LSA senior Michael Jay Walker
said the University "teaches" racism
by ignoring it, and that if a person
wants to know about black history
"all one has to do is listen to WJJX
y Flo find out the two most famous
.women in black history," referring
Sto a joke aired over the station.
After hearing the tape, Shapiro
-said, "Indeed it is a very hum -

iliating moment in University
history, and I apologize to you and
everyone else... this apology is no
excuse for these people's actions."
Inteflex junior Anthony Vavasis,
a member of the United Coalition
Against Racism, said the Uni -
versity unfairly expects students to
contact administrators and create
specific proposals to fight racism.
Vavsis said to the regents, "You
have put the burden on the students
to give you proposals on how to
deal with this issue. We are
students, and we are here to study
and we are here to learn, we are not
here to make policy, that's your
job, you are the administrators."
He said this attitude and the
failure to quickly condemn the
racist Couzens flier was "telling the

racists on this campus that you're
not willing to take the time out to
deal with these important issues."
Vavasis criticized the admini -
stration's failure to increase black
enrollment to ten percent, as
promised after the 1970 BAM
strike. Black enrollment currently
stands at 5.2 percent.
He called the regents' reluctance
to grant Nelson Mandela an
honorary degree a "slap in the face"
to minority faculty, students, and
the entire world.
"What you're telling the
Apartheid regime in South Africa is
that it has one friend in the world,
and that's right here in Ann Arbor,"
said Vavasis who pointed out that
the Johannesburg Star printed the
fact that the University did not
honor Mandela.

By ROSE MARY WUMMEL
The Latin American Solidarity
Committee and the Nicaraguan
Medical Aid Project led 30 people
in yesterday's seventh weekly
protest against U.S. policy in
Central America at the Federal
Building.
No one was arrested.
Demonstrators distributed more
than 100 fliers calling for an end to
U.S. intervention in Central
America, and announced a rally in
Detroit on March 29.
The group waved posters pro -
claiming, "Stop Reagan's Death
Machine," and "Honk if you oppose
Contra-Aid." Many motorists res -

ponded.
LSA sophomore Dave Austin
said the protests "hadn't grown as
big as we wanted but are still
effective."
According to Dean Baker, an
economics graduate student, LASC
has made area residents more aware
of the problems in Central
America.
Fourth Ward democratic chair
Frank Heintz, a first time protester,
said, "I've been concerned about the
misguided policy concerning
Central America, read about the
protests, and felt I should take overt
action."

Housing rate increase approved

big," said Regent Deane Baker (R-
.Ann Arbor).
a The regents reserved final
-approval for the plan until after
hyesterday's public comments ses -
'ion out of courtesy to the
solidarity committee.
}' Regent Thomas Roach (D-
r Saline) said he held sympathy for
Athe students, but realized one side
Cmust lose.
"It's a rough world - everyone
-Can't always have what they want,"
Roach said.
ACCORDING to Roach, the
50 units that will be lost by the
-destruction of University Terrace
will be replaced by turning the
Iearby Arbor Lodge into University
-housing.
Vice President and Chief
.-Financial Officer James Brinkerhoff

said that building a parking
structure at an alternative site to
save the Terrace housing would cost
$5 million more than the estimated
$10 million project. The alternative
site would be located on the
northeastern side of the East
Medical Center overlooking the
Huron River.
"The hospital could have taken
$5 million out of their $25 million
profit this year to save our
community," said Betsy Smith, a
member of the University Terrace
Solidarity Committee. "This is
only contributing to our desperate
1i---

housing shortage."
In other housing developments,
the regents yesterday approved a rate
increase of 6.3 percent for residence
halls and 5.4 percent for family
housing apartments. That basic rate
for a double room in the traditional
residence halls will be increased
from $3, 053 for two terms to
$3,244.
This is the biggest housing rate
increase in at least two years, and
makes the University the third most
expensive housing division in the
Big Ten.
