themselves, such as painting and
decorating the interior.
The theme of the restaurant is
New Orleans French Quarter, and the
two partners meticulously planned
the food and decor to give the
restaurant the feel of a small Euro-
pean cafe. Featured items on the
menu include the Cafe Au Lait,
which is chicory coffee cut with
milk, and the Beignet, a kind of
square French doughnut served hot
and covered with powdered sugar.
"We were looking to offer a ser-
vice that no one else does," said
Ivanko, "a way to compete with all
the other restaurants in Ann Arbor."
Ivanko's class partner supported
the accomplishment: "It's fantastic. I
wish him all the luck," said
Salzberg, a senior in the Business
School. She said she decided to try
to work her way up the corporate
ladder after graduation, instead of
joining Ivanko and Kaplan in the
I restaurant. "He is interested in be-
coming an entrepreneur; I'm not at
this point of my life," she said.
If the first six months of opera-
tion go well, Kaplan is thinking
about expanding The French Market
Cafe to another location closer to
central campus. But for now he is
going to concentrate his efforts on
this one.

The restaurant is the culmination of a class project for Retail Management 311, in which Business School
seniors John Ivanko and Judith Salzberg were required to draw up a restaurant concept and business plan.

Students enjoy internships in the outdoors

v v

While many students had to wear suits and
ties to their internships last summer, Monica
Tomosey spent her summer roaming the forests
of Western Oregon in search of spotted owls -
by hooting for them.
"The hooting sounds even better than a tape of
} a spotted owl," said Tomosey, a graduate student
in the School of Natural Resources. She helped
the Bureau of Land Management collect data on
the population size and reproductive success of
the owls by finding and reporting on the condi-
tion of their nests.
TOMOSEY was one of more than 1,000
students selected by the Resource Assistant pro-
gram last summer to help manage and conserve
the nation's parks, public lands, and natural re-
sources. The program is sponsored by the educa-
tional, non-profit Student Conservation Associa-

The year-round internships, located in over 35
states, are strictly voluntary.
"When you say the word 'voluntary,' people
almost automatically turn themselves off," said
Lara Hill, a natural resources junior and SCA's
campus field recruiter.
WHILE THE lack of money deters some
people, Hill said, the program is "not a free
vacation (and) needs really well-motivated people
who can and like to work under minimal
supervision." This sometimes entails sleeping in
tents or having only sporadic contact with staff
Although Tomosey said she occasionally felt
the need to see someone her own age, she didn't
find the distance from home depressing. "It was
exciting being in the middle of nowhere," she

But geographic and social isolation are not
part of every student's experience. After a day of
trapping snowshoe hares for the U.S Fish and
Wildlife Department - in order to estimate their
population size and to place regulations on hunt-
ing - Hill joined students her own age in a
newly-furnished bunkhouse.
George Norris, a graduate in Natural Re-
sources and Environmental Policy, chose Alaska
because he has "always had a great deal of fasci-
nation for regions that are environmentally intact
with predators still there."
ALASKA, because of its "far away mys-
tique," has become the most popular destination
among Resource Assistants, Hill said.
As a park ranger, Norris said he found leading
hikes and giving slide presentations rewarding
because it was something he really cared about.

Right to Life, warring their own
campaign, is raising money for ad-
vertising and speakers and is also
working on clarifying the wording of
the ballot referendum, said Rae Ann

County Right to Life.
Houbeck said she was disap-
pointed with Kelley's decision, but
said she is hopeful for the November

Michigan is one of 14 states
that uses taxpayer money to finance
abortions for the poor. In 1986, the
most recent year for which a final
tally is available, Michigan paid
about $5.8 million for 18,600 abor-
The measure to ban the state
funding was put before the Legisla-
ture last year by the anti-abortion
drive. It easily passed both cham-
bers, escaping a gubernatorial veto
because it was initiated by the peo-
ple. - The Associated Press con-

gay rights a high priority.
"My understanding of the
University is that the way they
(administration) indicate their sup-
port for different movements... is
through financial allocations," Ed-
wards said after the rally.
But University Director of Coun-
seling Services Harold Korn said
yesterday that the office did receive a
budget increase, although it was not
as large as the advocates wanted. He
said he was not at liberty to disclose
the amount of the increase.
FUNDING for the office is
provided through the University Of-
fice of Student Services. University
Vice President for Student Services
Henry Johnson was out of town
yesterday and could not be reached
for comment.
Edwards also praised the students
present for attending. "Those of you
out here listening to me are taking
the risk that you might be identified
as a lesbian or gay male... that takes
guts," she said.
But speakers blamed yesterday's
turnout, lower than that at gay rights
rallies in previous years, on yester-
day's rain and unseasonable cold.
Jim Toy, the University's gay male
advocate, said after the rally, "I'm
glad as many as came as did, given
the weather." But one unidentified
participant called the crowd size
THE RALLY was part of Les-
bian and Gay Awareness Week,
sponsored by the Lesbian and Gay
Rights Organizing Committee.
LaGROC leader and LSA senior
Carol Wayman also addressed the
rally, and called for the defeat of Re-
gent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor), if
he runs for re-election next year.
Baker, an outspoken opponent of the
bylaw change, angered gay and les-
bian activists earlier this year by
calling for an investigation into al-

leged homosexual activity in the
Mason Hall men's room.
Baker said yesterday he believes
current University policies are suffi-
cient to protect gays from harass-
HE ALSO denied Wayman's
charge that he had referred to gays
and lesbians as "child molesters."~
The accusations stem from state-
ments he reportedly made at a
March, 1984 regents' meeting, that
"a homosexual should not be em-
ployed in a summer camp dealing
with small children."
'Those of you out here
listening to me are taking
the risk that you might be
identified as a lesbian or
gay male... that takes
- Billie Edwards, coordi-
nator of 'U' Lesbian and
Gay Male Program Office.
Toy, who also spoke at the rally,
added that the gay rights movement
has made progress in the past two
decades - including the establish-
ment of the advocate's office - but
said the homosexual community
must continue to pressure for
"If you want a piece of the pie
and they won't give it to you... you

crowd in chanting, "We're going to
