Artist's rendering of 'U'

Many of the posters at campus
bookstores are pictures of the Uni-
versity's football stadium or car-
toons depicting University life. But
one student entrepreneur, sparked by
this monotony, has created an alter-
native which is appropriate in any
setting - from living rooms to

Michigan fans - is described as

LSA sophomore Brad Keywell
was the brains behind the project.
modern art buff, Keywell wanted
s something contemporary, that would
somehow subtly , yet simply, cap-
ture the diversity reprensentative of
"I woke up with this idea for a
new poster, but I'm not an artist and
I wasn't sure how I was going to do
it," he said.
Keywell checked with printers
and with the University to get per-
mission for the project. Once moved
by the feasibility of the idea, he or-
ganized a competition to design the
poster last spring at the University's
School of Art. The prize was $200
plus a percentage of the profits from
Art school junior Nicole Nagel
won for her entry of a painted block
"MICHIGAN is such a mesh
of different things," she said. To
capture this, she layered colors
against each other. In this way the
'M' was also made less obvious, she

well's caption "Painting the Perfect
Picture," tied together feelings that
he wanted with the art work, Nagel
Keywell wants the poster to ap-
peal to students, parents, and alumni
as a symbol that is "more pre-
sentable as well as timeless," in
contrast to traditional aerial campus
snapshots, Nagel said.
"It is a new approach to a Michi-
gan poster. When I saw the contest
requirements I said, 'Yea, I'd even
like one of those'," Nagel said.
KEYWELL recently pledged a
percentage of the profits to Motts
Children's Hospital. "I was always
impressed with businessmen, like
(Michigan millionaire A. Alfred)
Taubman, who donate large amounts
of their money to charity."
Nagel had designed more than 40
posters before settling on the 15 she
submitted to Keywell. "When I was
doing them they were hanging all
over my walls - it was hilarious, it
was like I was obsessed with 'M's."
Her entry won from multiple en-
tries submitted by more than 30
The poster, which retails for $12,
is available at five Ann Arbor loca-
tions including Barnes and Noble,
State Discount, Balfour House,
Willy's, and the Bagpiper.

best Michigan posters I've seen, said
Nancy Lierle, owner of the Bagpiper.

In a presentation entitled "The
World Is Weeping," Detroit Free
Press photographer David Turnley
communicated - using his slides
set to music - some of the realities
of South Africa to a crowd of more
than 200 people yesterday.
Turnley, a University alumnus,
was one of a handful of Western
journalists who were able to obtain
visas to stay in South Africa from
1985 through 1987. He finally was
forced by the government to leave
because of the "bias" in his work.
Turnley's photographs depict the
daily lives of people who live and
work under the apartheid regime.
Most of the photographs are of
Black South Africans, though some
juxtapose whites and Blacks to show
how different their lives are. One
picture shows a fat white man lean-
ing against a car while a young
Black woman pumps gas for him. In
another picture, white police officers
beat back a crowd of Blacks.
OF THE 30 million people who
live in South Africa only 5 million
are white, yet they rule a majority of
Blacks who do not have basic rights
such as the ability to vote or choose
where they will live. Black South
Africans are forced to live in town-
ships located 20 to 40 miles outside
the all-white cities.
Turnley experienced South Africa
as having "two worlds." He described
the whites there as "clueless" about
the harsh reality of the lives of Black
Turnley's presentation was un-
structured to encourage the audience
to determine the direction. After a
45-minute slide show, Turnley an-
swered questions about his experi-
ence in South Africa and his work
QUESTIONS to Turnley cen-
tered around his role as a white
American trying to work in all-Black
communities. He expressed his con-
cern that there is a serious misper-
ception by whites, both in and out
of South Africa, of the intentions of
"Black people in South Africa
want no more than the rights en-

With Michigan Student Assembly
elections just around the corner, The
Moderates Party is having unexpected
difficulty reaching potential voters:
MSA's election director determined
that 600 of the party's posters
violated the assembly's election coder
The party has appealed the de-
cision of election director Vicki Tdl-
ces to the Central Student Judiciary
which handles appeals of MSA
actions. CSJ Chief Justice John
Sotiroff said the case will be
reviewed by the judiciary's election
The poster featured a photo of
MSA president Michael Phillips
holding a poster reading "Duderstadt
is illegal" at the inauguration of
University President James Duder-
stadt last month.
Some campus groups have ques-
tioned Duderstadt's legitimacy, on
grounds that the University's Board
of Regents may have violated the
OpenMeetings Act in selecting him:
Tolces determined the poster could
not be used under election code
clause 14.654, which reads "Any stu-
dent who in campaign advertising
material states or implies that a
particular organization has endorsed a
candidate or viewpoint, must secure
and retain that written permission of
the student or organization giving tlie
Tolces said the party must receive
written permission from Phillips
because he represents MSA as i
organization - supporting the posi-
tion displayed on the poster he §s
"He's endorsing this viewpoint
(the one on the poster) for MSA." :
Tolces admitted, though, that the
clause was "kind of vague."
The Moderates is not the only
party unclear on the clause's meatl
ing. The Centerpoint party wanted tai
use the same photo on its posters;
To avoid bureaucratic delay, the party
used the photo with the word 'illegal"
cut out, thereby circumventing the
rule because Phillips is not shown
supporting any viewpoint.
Karen Libertiny, an LSA junior
and a member of the Centerpoint
party, said, "Centerpoint feels that
it's clear that Michael Phillips holds
that opinion." She said the party
believes the poster should have been
approved in its entirety.
... recalls South Africa
joyed by white people... the right to
vote, choose where they will live, to
Turnley also spoke of the need to
create awareness in people outside of
South Africa. He stressed the need
for education, and implored the audi-
ence to "do everything we can to not
let this issue die."
Michigan blood battle-
BY LAURA COHN
Pints of blood are pulsing in at a fairly anemic rate in
the Michigan vs. Ohio State Blood Battle, organizers
As of 2 p.m. yesterday, after two days of competition,
Michigan collected 837 pints of blood out of the goal
6,275, and Ohio State collected 918 pints out of 5,750.
LSA senior John Lin, who has helped with the Blood
Battle for four years, said Tuesday he thought this year's
response is "lame."
"I think that the total will have a big jump in the
next few days because many students have been busy
voting," said Neal Fry, the Red Cross representative for
"After waiting in poll lines for three hours, they
didn't have time to take out another hour to donate
blood. Also, on Monday three of our nurses were sick,
so we had to turn away donors."
The Red Cross sets goals for each residence hall. The
number of pints collected from the faculty has not yet
been tabulated, so the University's total is not com-

comes closest to its goal - will be announced at half-
time of the Michigan-Ohio State football game Nov. 19.

forward to serving another two years

Pursell was referring to the nearly
$750,000 Pollack spent in her cam-
paign. He spent about $1 million,
making this the most expensive race
in Michigan and one of the most
costly for a Congressional seat in the

She had set out in her campaign
to try to prove that a strong chal-
lenger can unseat an incumbent
member of Congress. Her failure, she
said, shows "it is practically impos-
sible to beat an unindicted incum-
This was Pursell's closest race
since he was first elected in 1976 by
a margin of 344 votes. Previously,
his closest race was in 1986, when
he beat University graduate student
Dean Baker 59-41.
"We made enormous gains," Pol-
lack said, "but it wasn't enough."
SHE WILL take some time off
this weekend, but will be back in
Lansing at 8 this morning for Senate
business. Pollack was first elected to
the Michigan Senate in 1982.
Guitars, tape recorders and a
compact disc player, valued at a total
of $6,100, were reported stolen from
the Music Mart, 322 S. State St.,

Sgt. Jan Suomala said the thieves
apparently gained entry into the store
by removing a door from a storage
area in the basement. The break-in
occurred sometime between Saturday
afternoon and Monday morning, he
There a're no suspects in the
