Chair Delro Harris, an LSA
sophomore, said he introduced the

leaving. "That was the clincher," he
said "But this has happened in the
LSA representative Sara Riordan,
an LSA sophomore, said Harris
introduced the resolution to air his
differences with Phillips. "Delro was
using a vacuous resolution to slam
Mike Phillips," she said.
Phillips agreed, accusing Harris
of including his name in the
resolution to make him look bad
just before MSA's elections. Many
assembly members expect Phillips
to run for MSA president in the
elections on March 22 and 23, but
Phillips said he will not decide until
Thursday, the last day to declare
candidacy for any MSA seat.
But Harris said the resolution
would help Phillips' election
prospects.. "It gives him a better
image by having him say that
constituents are important," Harris
MSA President Ken Weine, an
LSA senior, said the resolution was
unnecessarily took up the
assembly's time because its details
could have been worked out in
MSA's steering committee meeting.
But Weine appeared upset that
some assembly members did not
respect the resolution. When
Rackham student Corey Dulgan
asked if he could no longer go to the
bathroom during constituents time,
Weine retorted that he disapproved of
Dolgan's "sarcasm."

In a memo accompanying his

"Jim Boyd has been known for
racist comments," said Building
Services employee Nelson McEwen,
who said Boyd assaulted him.
McEwen said Boyd intentionally
pushed a door into his back on the
morning of Feb. 17 as he was
waiting to report to work at the
Undergraduate library.
Boyd refused to comment on the

State, County and Municipal
Employees (AFSCME) local 1583,
the union which represents the
Building Services employees,
endorsed the protest.
McEwen said that his supervisors
have prevented him from filing a
written grievance against the union.
The employees' contract entitles
them to have union stewards record
written grievances against
management for them within eight
working hours of requesting one.
McEwen said that Boyd violated
the contract because he did not
obtain a steward for him until more
than ten working hours after he
requested one. Furthermore, he said,
when he tried to report his grievance
to steward Avis Maria at a meeting
attended by Supervisor Tim Block,
Block would not allow Maria to
record the grievance.
Block ordered Maria and McEwen

to end the meeting and said the
grievance was "cancelled," McEwen
said. After arguing with Block,
Maria was suspended indefinitely.
McEwen was also suspended for four
days without pay. Maria corroborated
McEwen's account of the meeting.
Block could not be reached for
comment yesterday.

worker-student unity to fight
racism," AFSCME Bargaining

"All evidence seems to indicate
that (McEwen) is a victim of racial

Bush, Dukakis take Vermont; prepare for Super Tues.

George Bush, bidding to extend his
winning steak in New England, led
Bob Dole last night in the Vermont
Republican presidential primary.
Pat Robertson and Rep. Jack
Kemp, who put up little effort in the
primary, lagged far behind the GOP
Dole assailed George Bush on the
Iran-Contra affair on a tough new
television commercial. In the
advertisement, Dole says that Bush
has refused to say he would veto an
increase in income tax rates, that he
won't support a textile import bill,
and that he "supported the arms for
hostages deal" in the Iran-Contra
"That's precisely what he did -
he supported the sale of arms to
Iran," the Kansas senator said as he
campaigned in Durham, N.C.

Sfeir-Younis said he sees yoga as
a way for a person to develop his or
her own full potential through self-
actualization and self-discovery. He
uses it for himself.
Sfeir-Younis has tried to open
other people to his philosophies
through an international group. The
group tries to train people to develop
themselves as a wholesby studying
the traditions of peoples throughout
the world.
HE IS currently working on his
dissertation comparing lire in Puerto
Rico with Cuba.
"We study all traditions so people
feel at home," Sfeir-Younis said,
emphasizing that the group is not a
religious organization or a cult. He
said its goal is to bring things like

Bush, who was campaigning in
Florida, said of Dole's Iran-Contra
comments, "I support the president. I
have nothing to say about Dole's
charges, nothing at all." Instead, he
touted his own role in the decision to
invade Grenada with U.S. troops in
1983, as well as the part he has
played in the administration's anti-
drug program.
If Bush is heavily favored in most
Republican Super Tuesday states, the
Democratic contest shapes up as a
struggle among Massachusetts Gov.
Michael Dukakis, Missouri Rep.
Richard Gephardt, Tennessee Sen.
Albert Gore Jr., and Jesse Jackson.
Dukakis defeated four other
Democrats in the Vermont primary, a

teaching assistant, said.
Zald, who was on the committee
that chose Sfeir-Younis as
undergraduate program director, said
Sfeir-Younis "was a natural" to take
over the program.
Since Sfeir-Younisbtookeover,
Zald noted, the number of
undergraduate concentrators has
doubled, the number of students in
the undergraduate sociology seminar
has skyrocketed from about 15 to
over 350, and the honors program
has grown much stronger.

Jackson running a strong second to
the Massachusetts governor as he did
last weekend in Maine. Gary Hart,
the big winner here in 1984, was
running dead last.
Sen. Paul Simon, who skipped
campaigning for both the Vermont
and Super Tuesday primaries, moved
on to Seattle to campaign for support
in the Washington caucuses.
Ironically, it was a Democratic
idea to develop Super Tuesday, a
regional Southern primary, in the
hopes that it would give a candidate
from the deep South a springboard to
the nomination.
It hasn't worked out that way, and
former president Jimmy Carter, who
invited Gephardt to his home in

Plains, Ga., said he is no longer sure
whether the idea is good or bad.
He added, "My hope is that out of
the primary and caucus season will
come a clear winner. I'm not sure
that's a likelihood now."
Carter, the last Democrat to
occupy the White House, said he
thought the chances were 50-50 that
no democrat would arrive'at the party

nominating convention with enough
delegates to claim the nomination.
Vice President Bush sounded
confident that nothing of the sort
would happen in the Republican race.
Bush, in a strong position in
virtually all of the Southern states
that will vote next week, said, "I'm
convinced that whoever wins Super
Tuesday will be the next president."
