Students revive PIRGIM fee
controversy for MSA elections
(Continued from Page 3)
bly's general fund.
More than 1,000 signatures are
required by Feb. 19 to put a referen-
dum on MSA's March election bal-
lot. Non-voting MSA member Bruce
Belcher, a Rackham graduate student,
said the assembly will probably
sample 10 percent of the signatures
to see if all are students before a ref-
erendum is finalized.
MSA Vice-President Wendy
Sharp said she was ambivalent about
the petition. "Any student can bring
up anything if they get enough sig-
natures," she said. "But, it seems re-
dundant... the students already de-
cided that PIRGIM should be funded
In MSA's elections last spring,
69 percent of the students voted in
favor of a referendum to fund PIR-
GIM with an optional refund.
But Bhushan said many students
signed an earlier petition to get
PIRGIM on last spring's ballot be-
cause the group was in the "public
interest," not because they wanted to
But Sharp said students probably
knew what the PIRGIM petition en-
tailed. "I don't think there are many
people who sign something without
reading it," Sharp said.
Regardless of the lingering PIR-
GIM controversy, Angelotti said he
started the petition because PIRGIM
receives a disproportionate amount
of student funding. "The 75 cent fee
is unfair because it is directed to one
group (PIRGIM)," he said. "Whereas
MSA's general fund goes to a vari-
ety of groups."
Weine said PIRGIM has re-
sponded with a petition to keep its
funding from the student fee, but
representatives from the group were
unavailable for comment.

The group has unsuccessfully
lobbied the regents to change regen-

In ruling for the soldier, the court
said homosexuals who contend they
were denied their right under the
Constitution's Fifth and 14th
amendments to equal protection of
the law must get the same type of
judicial review the Supreme Court
has required only for racial minori-
ties and aliens.
Wayman said that because the
ruling gives homosexuals the same
protection that other minorities re-
ceive, the Board's three major rea-
sons for refusing to add discrimina-
tion on the basis of sexual orienta-
tion to bylaw 14.06 will be com-
The main reasons given by some

stop dealing with organizations,
such as the armed forces, that dis-
criminate against homosexuals;
-It would force the University to
give preference to homosexuals in
admissions under its affirmative ac-

Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Ar-

Davis was discharged from the
Marine Corps in 1967 because of her
homosexual orientation. "I didn't
choose to fight it. I was 18, naive,
and scared. I just wanted out," she
said, "I was told it could've been a
lot worse if I fought it."

that he repeatedly made allegations
