PHOTOSTORY BY ROBIN LOZNAK
Thanksgiving is almost here, and
it's time to pick out a prize
gobbler. The Kroger Butterball is
always an option, but for a more
traditional holiday meal, Websters'
Turkey Farm in Saline, sells tur-
keys without the chemicals and
steroids fed to grocery-store birds.
This week, three generations of
Websters slaughtered enough tur-
keys to fill 1,200 platters. But this
-year will be their last; the Web-
sters plan to take a rest after 44
years of growing gobblers.
But they're willing to share their
"secret recipe" with anyone who
has the guts to try it. 1. Slit the
turkey's throat and drain the blood.
2. Cleanse the bird with boiling
water and remove the feathers in
your handy plucking machine. 3.
Remove the heads and legs. 4.
Rinse in boiling water again, and
remove the guts - if yours are
still there. 5. Bag the bird and and
sell it - and then, we suggest, go
out for a cheeseburger.

MSA has no direct power to
enforce these demands. If they are not
met, however, the resolution calls for
tie assembly to revoke Tagar's
'standing as a recognized student
If Tagar loses MSA's recognition,
it will no longer be eligible for MSA
funding, listing in MSA's student
activity booklet, and use of Union
facilities. Cornerstone Christian
Fellowship lost its student group
recognition earlier this year when a
performer hired by the fellowship
fang a song offensive to gay men and
lesbians on the Diag.
ya Ad Hoc Committee Against Anti-
Arab Racism member Hilary
Shadroui, a Rackham graduate
student, spoke for the proposal,
demanding "an apology that
recognizes the racism of the incident,
not an apology that just says 'we're
sorry, we hurt someone's feelings.'
She also stressed that the change
in wording did not necessarily reflect
a change in the purpose or position
of the wooden bus.
Tagar representative Michele
Fliegel read an apology on behalf of
tfie group. In part, it read: "Tagar in
no way meant our political message
to be construed as an ethnic slur...
Through the wooden bus Tagar
sought to communicate facts about
the bombing in Israel and to urge an
end to violence by peaceful
She pointed out that "Ms. Cindy
Straub, the University Interim
Student Policy Administrator... has
already publicly stated that Tagar's
conduct was not discriminatory under
the policy." Under the University's
discriminatory acts policy, the Diag
is considered a "public forum," and
exempt from restrictions of
"Tagar feels that the more
appropriate resolution of this
problem would have been to have an
open dialogue between the two
groups," Fliegel said.
She said Tagar will appeal this
decision to the Central Student
Judiciary. "Although MSA doesn't
call itself a courtroom, we felt as if
we were being prosecuted," she said.
"The issue is not only important to
Tagar, because it deals with their
own political issues, but now we feel
we have to defend the right to free
speech on this campus. MSA's
actions clearly constitute
discrimination based on political
Members of the ad hoc committe
considered the resolution a victory.
"Today is a victory for forces against
racism at the University of
Michigan," Shadroui said. "MSA has
shown that anti-Arab racism is no
more acceptable than any other form
of racism. Arabs, Americans, and
others who were offended by the
racism in Tagar's actions celebrate
MSA's just resolution but
acknowledge that we have much
more work to do in educating the
University of Michigan community
not only on anti-arab racism but all
forms of racism."

Canadian trade pact may
boost Detroit's economy
DETROIT - As the largest metropolitan area on the U.S.-Canadian
border, Detroit could be a new commercial center under the free trade
agreement that got a boost when conservatives won Canada's election, a
Michigan economist said yesterday.
The agreement also could signal a move toward lowering world trade
barriers, and that could be vital to the U.S. economy, said Wayne State
University economist David Verway.
In 10 years, the pact would phase out tariffs on the 22 percent of
Canadian exports still subject to U.S. duties and on the 35 percent of
U.S. exports still subject to Canadian duties.
The United States and Canada are the world's largest trading partners,
with two way trade expected to reach $150 billion this year. Their
agreement will have an impact at General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade
meetings later this year in Canada, Verway said.
Bush speaks to GOP governors
POINT CLEAR, Ala. - President-elect George Bush spoke to
Republican Governors yesterday about working with Congress and
"bringing people together" to fight the federal budget deficit. However,'
Bush also said he won't bow to others' suggestions that higher taxes are-
part of the solution.
While Bush was winning the Presidential election, the Democrats were
widening their lead in governorships and in the Senate and House. But
Bush told the governors, "We are on our way to becoming the majority
party in America if we don't lose sight of what is driving our success."
Renewing a campaign promise, Bush said he would convene a confer-
ence of all 50 governors very early in his administration to plan for "the
most ambitious renaissance in education that our nation has ever known."
He also pledged to seek an environmental policy of "no net loss of
wetlands," but assured the governors, "I'm not proposing 'no growth."'
Pres. forcasts strong economy
WASHINGTON - The Reagan administration issued its final eco-
nomic forecast yesterday, optimistically predicting that the economy'
will expand at 3.5 percent annual rate next year. However, private
economists said the projection was far too rosy and would spell big
headaches for President-elect George Bush in his efforts to reduce the
The economic forecast provides the underpinning for the admini-
stration's estimates on government spending and revenues and the budget.
The administration also was optimistic on the outlook for inflation,
predicting it would ease next year. The forecast also said interest rates
would drop as well. Both of the assumptions are disputed by private
"To use the administration's estimate for budget policy is very risky,"
said Lawrence Chimerine, head of the WEFA Group, an economic con-
sulting firm. "We've already seen signs that the economy is slowing,"
Detroit bonds rated low
DETROIT- Two bond firms have given Detroit municipal bonds the
lowest rating at which they recommend investing in them, but the city
says sales are brisk.
Moody's Investor Services of New York assigned a "Baa" rating to the
city's bonds, the lowest rating which it deems bonds to be of investment
Moody's said it based its rating on vulnerability of the city's economic
"This factor, along with the diminshed expenditure and revenue
flexibility and recent stagnation of municipal income tax revenues,
contributes to concern about long-term financial stability," the company
Standard & Poor's Corporation gave a $50 million city bond issue a
"BBB" rating last Friday, which is their lowest investment rating.
Despite that, on Monday Mayor Coleman Young said, "We put ($50
million in general obligation) bonds on the market three days ago and
they were gone in a day."
High schoolers go berserk;
massacre 'flour' toddlers
SPRING LAKE, Mich -When Marybeth Lobbezoo handed out five-
pound sacks of flour as imaginary babies in her reproductive health class,
Spring Lake High School turned into a house of horror.
Older students kidnapped the "babies" from Lobbezoo's first year
students, and stabbed the sacks with pencils.
The experiment aimed to teach teens about parenting by making them
care for the bogus babies. Instead, it became a three-day massacre of
artificial murder and mutilation at the suburban Grand Haven school.
More than 50 students told Lobbezoo they were harassed and their
sacks - some decorated with tiny faces and hair and dressed in doll
clothes - were punctured by upperclass students.
"Some of these kids came to class just devastated because they had kids;
in other classes the decided to kill babies," she told the Spring Lake Board
of Education Monday night.
