K The map below lists the major
crimes reported during the month of
February in the campus and student
housing areas.
Crime statistics from the Univer-
sity's Department of Public Safety
and Security show a decrease in total
monetary loss due to thefts from
University property during February.
Statistics for the month also show a
decrease in the number of reported
sexual assaults.
Director of Public Safety Leo
Heatley said that in February, larce-
nies on campus totaled $62,659
worth of University and personal
property. This figure marks a
significant decrease from the total
loss of $90,964 reported for January.
Extremely cold weather during the
month, as well as students' absence

crime scene

during spring break, probably ac-
counted for the drop in larcenies,
Heatley said.
"When everybody is gone things
slow down here a little bit. The
weather was also extremely cold,
which kept everybody off the
streets," he said.
Public Safety is investigating the
embezzlement of $3,700 by an
unidentified University employee re-
ported at the end of the month. Be-
cause the case is still under investi-
gation,- Heatley could not disclose
the department from which the
money was stolen.
Heatley said the theft of a 1988
Ford from a parking structure on
Church Street was the most expen-
sive larceny of personal property.
The car, worth $9,000, was recov-
ered, but no suspect was found,

Heatley said.
Statistics also showed a decrease
in the number of reported sexual as-
saults on campus in February. No
sexual assaults were reported to
campus security last month, com-
pared to the two reported rapes in
January. The Ann Arbor Police De-
partment is investigating a first de-
gree sexual assault that occurred on
North State Street near Catherine and
Lawrence Streets.

Troupe a
Scott Weissman and his theater
troupe, "Talk to Us," have a different
approach to fighting racism, sexism,
homophobia, and anti-semitism in
the University community.
They believe that watching scenes
of discrimination and bigotry will
prompt their audience to recognize
their own bigotry and the problems
faced by other groups.
"Philosophically, the goal in my
estimation is to move people to-
wards compassion (for other
groups)," said Weissman, a lecturer
in the University's Theater Depart-
ment and director of last weekend's
"Talk to Us" presentation in the
Trueblood Theater in the Frieze
"TALK TO US" - an inter-
active theater troupe comprised of 13
students and other members of the
University community - acts out
short scenes ofmvarious types of dis-
crimination and solicits audience
questions. "We freeze at a crucial
scene in the action, and a facilitator
leads a discussion (between the audi-
ence and actors)," Weissman said.
"We are meant to be atheater or-
ganization that is responsive to stu-
dent groups on campus," Weissman
said. In the past year the "Talk to
Us" troupe created scenes for groups
such as the Sexual Assault Preven-
tion and Awarenessand the Lesbian
and Gay Rights Organizing Com-
As part of the University's Ninth
Annual Conference on the Holo-
caust, six troupe members performed

lead to tragedies like the Holocaust
of Nazi Germany.
THE SCENES included a
problem between a homosexual stu-
dent and a homophobic professor,
students stealing an exam, a Black
woman who was a victim of racist
stereotypes, and a Jewish woman
disputing being labelled a "JAP."
Engineering senior Meg Cameron
said she enjoyed the performance "as
much as you can enjoy it, I learned a
lot." The troupe "shows you differ-
ent attitudes (of prejudice) within
yourself that you don't like to ad-

mit," she said.
In addition to the performance by
"Talk to Us," Eugene Ionesco's one-
act play The Lesson was perforrmed
by Visiting Professor Barry Boys of
the University Theater Department
and two theater students. The Lesson
probes "personal domination by an
authority figure over a subservient
figure" and is a metaphor for both
state and personal repression which
occurred in the Holocaust.
"Talk to Us" is sponsored by the
University Housing Division and the
Hillel Foundation.
