Art class aids non-profit groups IN BRIEF
By THERESA LAI
The walls of the NorthACampus
art studio are mostly bare, but local
organizations say talent beams vi-
brantly from the design workshop
The University School of Art's
Graphic Design Production Work-
shop is a "unique" course which pro-
vides art students with the opportu-
nity to explore the professional world
"while gaining experience in the de-
The class enables students to ven-
ture into the business world where
they create posters, business cards,
logos, and newsletters for non-profit
IN THE PAST, many organi-
zations have tapped the students' cre-
ative talent including the Red Cross,
the University Musical Society, and
the University Hospitals.
Douglas Hesseltine, a part-time
art school professor, conceived the
idea for the workshop 12 years ago
because he wanted students to exer-
cise the complete design process -
from diagraming and assembling a
design to seeing the finished product.
* A *
Graphics students gain experience for work
But the workshop is "not out to
compete with freelance graphic
artists," said Bruce Meader, director
of the workshop for the past two
The students, who don't charge
the organizations for their designs,
mostly work for clients who could
not otherwise afford the service. The
companies provide materials and bear
printing and transportation costs.
MEADER SELECTS the 15
students who will participate in the
three-credit class each semester. The
students are selected for their high
caliber of ability, he said.
The makeshift classroom is in the
Art and Architecture Building - far
from the reaches of central campus.
The students meet twice a week be-
tween the partitioned walls that they
call the art studio.
The room, which has four rows of
drafting tables and smells of paint, is
not exciting, Meader said, but the
students' work is.
Robin Stephenson Drent, promo-
tional director for the University
Musical Society, said a student-de-
signed poster last semester for Han-
del's Messiah was a "great design"
which was done "in a timely fash-
SHE SAID Robin McCormick,
a senior who designed the poster, was
"a complete professional." The de-
sign featured a large script "M"
representing the first letter in Mes-
Another student, art school senior
Michael Thibodeau, is redesigning
Washtenaw County dumpsters in
earth tones to make them blend into
their surroundings. The old design
was too "rigid and hideous" for mall
parking lots, he said.
To make the containers more self-
explanatory, so non-English speak-
ing individuals could understand the
usage of the bins, he incorporated
symbols of glass bottles and paper
products to separate the different
Thibodeau said much of the work
- designing projects and meeting
with clients - is done outside the
classroom. He estimates the entire
project should take him about one
HE ADDED THAT over 50
percent of art majors want to be
graphic artists - not just paint and
draw like many people believe. The.
workshop provides students with a
portfolio of professional work to
show graphic design companies,
which do not hire artists on mere
references, said Fritz Klaetke, also an
art school senior.
"The experience is worth not be-
ing paid," Klaetke said.
Klaetke described the art produc-
tion workshop as "learning how to
deal with clients in the real world,
but having the fake world of school
to fall back on."
Klaetke recently won first place in
the Frank Lloyd Wright Symposium
competition for his poster based on
Wright's stained glass window de-
RECENTLY, another workshop
student, Paul Montie, completed a
mailer, poster, and pamphlet for the
Housing Bureau for Seniors which
sponsors a yearly housing fair for
senior citizens of the Washtenaw
In years past, the Housing Bureau
had problems getting responses from
the people - mostly realtors, home
builders, and apartment building
owners - who received the mailer.
But, this year, with the mailer
sent out for less than a week, Joyce
Meade, Housing Fair coordinator said
she has already received "positive
comments" from prospective exhib-
iters. Meade added that she was
"fairly confident the mailer was no-
The design workshop does not
have a problem maintaining clients,
Meader said. This year he designed a
brochure for clients that features past
student work and describes each
party's responsibilities to the project.
The course is not required for stu-
dents to graduate from the School of
Art, but it does provide them with
experience which cannot be learned in
Meader said students do not need
to come to class every week, but
they meet with him when they want
advice regarding their various pro-
jects. This way, he said, the work-
shop promotes the independence
which is essential in the professional

the ACLU has never been asked to
represent a University student who
was thrown out of the residence halls
for having sex. She added that they
would be willing to help anyone who
did have such a problem.
WILLIAMS SAID the "sex
clause" is included to protect the
roommate if one has a problem with
the other's sexual activities. "It's
something to respect the rights of
all," he said. "The first responsibility
of a roommate is to share concerns
with the roommate, and the other
roommate should be receptive to
that. That is part of co-existing with
someone, and most cases are resolved
right there - with the two people
involved working with the Residence
If any problems do occur, resident
advisers will usually be the first to
hear about them. Kurt Heize, a sec-
ond-year RA in Couzens, said he has
never had to arbitrate this type of
dispute between roommates or hall-
mates and added, "(The 'sex clause')
is unrealistic. I think the University
wrote these rules a long time ago."
"We have to remember the vast
majority of residents in residence
halls are adults, and they are respon-
sible for their own moral conduct,"
Heize added. "I don't think the Uni-
versity has a leg to stand on in trying
to impose standards such as those."
When asked if he would take ac-
tion if he knew people were having
premarital sex on his hall, Heize an-
swered, "The only thing I can think
of is if two people were bothering
their neighbors by having sex a little
bit too loudly, I could see myself
maybe asking them to keep it down.
Also, there is a difference between
cohabitation and overnight guests.
When I lived in Alice Lloyd, there
was a woman livingcacross the hall
from me the whole winter semester,
and one roommate did not like it. In
a case like that, I would definitely
take action." '
SIMON GUPTA, an RA in
West Quad's Williams House, said,
"There is so much circumvention,
and it is so unenforceable that it is
useless. I guess maybe it should be
gotten rid of... it makes so many
people lawbreakers that I don't think
the intention of the rules are met."
Art student Janet Hackel, a Resi-
dent Director in Couzens, said she
believed the rule was primarily a
preventive measure. "It is one of
those rules like the rule about
electrical appliances," she said. "If
they enforced it many members of
the residence staff campus-wide
would be in trouble."
Graduate student April Moon, an-
other RD in Couzens, added, "The
most common problem ive had is
visiting parents being shocked by
seeing people or their personal arti-'
cles lying around in a room."
LSA first-year student R. J. al-
low, a resident in West Quad's Rum-
sey House, said he didn't know about
the rule. Surprised, he said, "I've had
girls sleep over, and nobody cared. If
you have a rule and nobody cares,
you should just get rid of it."
Debra Batterman, an LSA first-
year student and resident in Couzens,
also was unaware that pre-marital
sex is against the rules in the resi-
dence halls. "I think it sucks," she

Arabs killed on 'Martyrs Day'
JERUSALEM - Soldiers killed 3 Arabs and wounded 13 in the
occupied lands yesterday, which the PLO named "Martyrs Day" for the
scores of Palestinians killed by Israeli bullets or beatings, army and Arab
Arabs paralyzed commerce in the West Bank and Gaza Strip with a
general strike. Protesters belted soldiers with rocks, bottles and
firebombs. The outlawed Palestinian flag flew in dozens of locations.
Israel's divided coalition government refused to vote on whether to
endorse a U.S. peace plan designed to end the violence that began Dec. 8
in the territories Israel captured from Jordan and Egypt in the 1967.
Including yesterday's deaths, there have been 87 Arabs killed by Israeli
gunfire or beatings in three months of violence.
Reagan lifts China sanctions
WASHINGTON - The Reagan administration announced yesterday it
is lifting sanctions on sales of new high technology to China because it
is satisfied that that country is not selling weapons to Iran.
Secretary of State George P. Shultz informed Chinese Foreign
Minister Wu Xeugian during a meeting Tuesday afternoon that the
restrictions would no longer apply.
For years, the United States has continuously increased the types of
high technology products China could purchase from American
companies, and as of now, this policy will stay in effect.
During a 40-minute meeting with President Reagan on Tuesday, Wu
also said his country would not stand in the way of a United Nations
resolution calling for an arms embargo against Iran, White House
spokesman Marlin Fitzwater said.
Two army helicopters collide
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. - Army crews worked yesterday to retrieve
the last eight bodies of 17 soldiers killed when two helicopters on a night
training mission collided, then plunged 250 feet to the ground and caught
The UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters from Fort Campbell spewed
wreckage for hundreds of yards and charred the partially wooded, gently
rolling site six miles from the choppers' air field.
"One aircraft is located in the trees. One aircraft is right on the edge of
a clearing," said Maj. Randy Schoel, Fort Campbell spokesperson.
Four bodies remained in the wreckage of each helicopter yesterday
afternoon, said Schoel.
The Blackhawk, one of the newer helicopters used by the Army, Air
Force and Marine Corps, has been grounded four times in three years.
Last summer officials said about 40 people had been killed in crashes of
the helicopter since 1978.
Prosperity will plummet as
Michigan population lags
WASHINGTON - The nation's industrial heartland, including
Michigan, will prosper in the next few years, but lagging population
growth threatens the region's political clout and share of federal programs,
said a congressional study yesterday.
The hemorrhage of regional jobs was another point of weakness in
assessing the 18 northern states stretching from Minnesota to New
England, said the Northeast-Midwest Institute's report, "The State of the
"The short-term economic outlook for the entire region is positive,"
said the report.
Accussed robber leaves teeth
FORT LAUDERDALE - Police took a bite out of crime by tracking
down a robbery suspect through dentures left behind after he allegedly
tried to bite his victim.
"He denies it, but we've got the teeth, and he doesn't," Sgt. Ray
Joseph Bennett, 62, was charged with strong-arm robbery, Hudson
Bennett's dentures fell out Saturday when he tried to bite Bobbie
McCloud, 76, police said.
"He was just choking me, and then he tried to bite me on the arm, but
it was just gums," McCloud said Monday.
Although her eyesight and hearing are failing, McCloud said she had
no trouble identifying Bennett as the robber.
When police brought Bennett back to her house, McCloud said they
had him try on the teeth left at her house.
"They fit right in his mouth," she said.
