University graduate student.
"I think it confirms that women
in sexual assault positions don't get
justice - that's why so few women
report (rape and sexual assault) to the
police," said Julie Steiner, director of
the Sexual Assault Prevention and
Sackett said a candlelight vigil
will be held at 6:30 tonight at the
County Court House on the corner
of Huron and Main Streets to oppose
the court ruling and to show support
for the plaintiff.
rSpeakers will talk about rape
prevention and sexual assault linked
with domestic violence.
"It will be a time for people to
talk about some of their feelings as
well as an opportunity for some
groups to tell people how to fight
against rape," Sackett said.
Sackett said some of the
participants will be members of the
Ann Arbor Coalition Against Rape,
Women's Crisis Center, Domestic
Violence Project, and Citizen's
Advisory Committee on Rape
The judge's decision sends the
message that a woman may
jeopardize her case by defending
herself, said Cathy Cohen on
Monday night. Cohen is a member

Rape and a University graduate stu-
Michigan Student Assembly Vice
President Wendy Sharp, an LSA
senior, said the judge's decision
reflects the societal problem of
victim-blaming - focusing on the
woman's behavior rather than the
defendant's actions - in the judicial
system on a national level.

Flu vaccines are also usually only
administered to high risk groups
such as the elderly or the chronically
ill. Therefore, many students are not
vaccinated and have little protection
against influenza, Monto said.
The outbreak of flu on campus
may rise into a couple of hundred of
} cases, but doctors are uncertain how
effective the virus will be.
"We've given up trying to make
predictions with the flu. The virus is
smarter than we are," said Monto.

English Department Chair Robert
Weisbuch would not comment last
The proposal passed by a vote of
25 -8.Some faculty, while
supporting the idea of offering
diverse literature classes, did not
think they should be required of
English Prof. James Gindin, who
voted against the proposal, called it a
"tacked on" requirement.
"I'm not convinced that required
courses will help us avoid
stereotypes... it's not the way to get
at this problem," Gindin said.
But Howard said the requirement
is necessary to indicate the
importance the department places on
literatures other than by traditionally
taught English and American
"Requirements for any
concentration are an indicator of
things people ought to study that
they might not otherwise study,"
said English Prof. Lincoln Faller.
The proposal does not increase
the number of credits - currently 27
- required of English concentrators.

demands to address the issue of
racism... I hope that adopting this
policy will serve as a sign
welcoming students to this
University," said Cynthia Koch, an
English graduate student and
curriculum committee representative.
Faller, also a committee
representative, said, "We wanted to
do something about racism and
sexism while also recognizing
writing that was outside the pattern
of regularly taught literature."
"As we approach the next
century, the University as a whole
ought to be concerned with opening
up its curriculum to more adequately
address the full range of things to be
known about in the world," Faller
said. "If the English Dept. can do it,
many other departments can do it."
Meiland said he is unaware of any
other LSA departments that have
proposed similar changes in their
