Senator

fall. The 51-year-old Hart had been a
presidential hopeful for the last four
years. In 1984, he finished a surpris-
ingly strong second to Walter
Mondale in the race for the Dem-
ocratic nomination.
He was far ahead of his
Democratic rivals in the public
opinion polls for the '88 nomination
until revelations about his relation-
ship with Donna Rice forced him to
abandon his quest on May 8 of this
year.
Hart never mentioned Rice by
name, but he said his withdrawal
from the race was "under circum-
stances that weren't particularly fun,
to say the least."
Hart concluded his speech by
expressing concern about America's
future. "As a nation we're not mov-
ing, we're drifting. We're drifting
back towards the waterfall of his-
tory."
The former senator admitted to
feeling awkward about resuming his
role as a public figure speaking out
on the issues after the intense
publicity surrounding his campaign
and its premature end. But he said he
would continue to give his answers
to America's problems.
"I'm here because I care about the
future of this country. I can't let the
issues go."

Student's diligency
brings Hart to 'U'

(Continued from Page 1)
Hart had been a philosophy major
and president of his undergraduate
philosophy club in college. I imme-
diately became interested in him,"
Cohn said.
"I was probably the first person
nationwide to write Hart about com-
ing to speak. I was working inti-
mately with his agent for two weeks
trying to find the money," Cohn
said.
But the year-old, 30-member phi-
losophy club was unable to finance
Hart's appearance, so Cohn began
searching for "a non-political cam-
pus organization which had a lot of
money," he said.
He turned to the University Ac-

tivities Center, the second largest
student organization on campus.
Cohn convinced UAC President Ann
McClendon to have the center un-
derwrite Hart's appearance.
Cohn would not disclose the fee
for last night's speech but said, "he's
making a lot of money." The activi-
ties center gets the proceeds from
sales of tickets - which ran $5 to
$8 - to offset the cost of the visit,
Cohn said.
Once funding was secured, Cohn
said Hart's agent.left the details up
to him. Cohn made the decisions
about when and where Hart would
speak, and even assigned the speech
topic.

The University Library offers workshops
on searching online databases via DIALOG
and BRS. These brokers offer access to
more than 300 databases. Databases
are available in the following broad
subject fields: business, education, life
sciences, medicine, physical and applied
sciences, social sciences and humanities.
Examples of individual databases are:
MANAGEMENT CONTENTS, ERIC
(Educational Resources Information
Center), BIOSIS (Biological Abstracts),
MEDLINE (Index Medicus), COMPENDEX
(Engineering Index), DISSERTATION
ABSTRACTS ONLINE, and ARTS AND
HUMANITIES SEARCH.
Faculty, students, and staff are invited to
enroll to learn how to do your own online
searching, and/or to understand what is
involved when library staff does an online
database search for you. Library staff
can assist you in acquiring your own BRS
and/or DIALOG account. For additional
information, contact any campus library or
send a message using the MTS message
system to ONLINE SEARCH-LSERVICES.
Additional courses will be announced in
the Michigan Daily.
