,-age 2-- The Michigan Daily - Monday, January 23, 1989

On Friday night, students tired of fraternity
parties, house parties, bars and clubs were offered
another option - a chance to dance for charity.
The dance, sponsored by the South Quad
Council and the Residence Hall Association,
raised close to $2,000 for the Muscular Dystro-
phy Association (MDA).
Over 150 students danced to the sounds of
three live bands in the South Quad dining room.
Later in the evening, two comedians entertained
students with stand-up humor.
A five-dollar donation admitted students to the
dance, though they were encouraged to give
more, said Tim Livingston, president of the
South Quad Council.
South Quad residents raised over $1,000 in

dance fc
pledges prior to the dance, said Jeff Flocken,
treasurer of the council and.LSA sophomore.
"It started out as an idea, and it grew. We
wanted to do something for charity," said Tracie
Behrendt, vice president of South Quad Council
and an LSA sophomore.
"Most of all I was really pleased about how
much money we made," Flocken said.
With lights dimmed and crepe paper strewn
from the ceiling, the dining room resembled a
dance hall.
Flocken said that although the dance com-
peted with popular fraternity parties, it was a
success. And students who did come to the dance,
ended up staying until the early morning hours.
"I think people are reluctant to go to resident
hall-type parties... it was a good time," said Liv-

r charity
He said he thinks more people would show up
for another South Quad (lance in the future be-
cause those who went to this one had a great
South Quad resident Nat Chaitkin, a music
school sophomore, said he was drawn to the
event not for the music, but for the comedy.
The three bands - Fully Loaded, Big Box of
Nines and Under the Influence - played for no
charge to raise money to fight muscular dystro-
phy. Comedians Tom Franck and Peter Berman
also performed for free.
Door prizes, given away on the hour, were
donated by Ann Arbor businesses.
South Quad Council will contribute additional
money to increase the donations to MDA.

ate attempt to end her pregnancy
before abortion was legal, with a
douche of quinine and lye, which
resulted in her infertility.
Reverend Davidson Loehr,
minister of the People's Church in
Kalamazoo, criticized the anti-choice
movement's manipulation of reli-
gious doctrine and ignorance of
complicated moral issues.
"When a pope stands in front of
millions of starving and illiterate
human beings in Mexico City, and
tells them t- breed like rabbits and

hamsters, it is more than irresponsi-
ble. It is evil, and we must face it,"
Loehr said.
The crowd, made up mostly of
white women, carried signs and
chanted slogans such as "Right to
Life; It's a lie. They don't care if
women die."
LSA sophomore Michelle Fleis-
cher, who attended the rally, ex-
pressed her concern that not enough
young women - those most af-
fected by Roe v. Wade - were
present at the rally.
"If Roe v.Wade is overturned, it
will ultimately affect our choice over
our bodies," Fleischer said.

Fred Gruber, an Ann Arbor-area
landlord, said, "There is more
availability this year because of the
new apartments that were built last
year on the outskirts of Ann Arbor."
The increasing vacancy rate has
also kept rents basically stable this
year, landlords said. But if the house
is a popular one, the rent will rise
Gruber said the standard rent
increase is 4 percent (the inflation
rate), but it can be higher or lower
depending on the popularity of the
particular unit.
But a more open housing market
and stable rent won't solve many of
the problems posed by house-hunt-
ing, Rumsey said, especially those
that arise between the tenants.
Rumsey advised students to work
out problems such as parking and
subletting with their roommates be-
fore signing a lease. "Most problems
arise between tenants themselves
rather than between tenant and
landlord," she said.
Rumsey said students should

make a checklist of what all the
roommates want, look at the listing
board in the Housing Office in the
Student Activities Building, make
appointments with rental agents, and
look carefully at a sample copy of
the lease. If there are any ambigui-
ties in the lease, the Housing
Division will provide help, she said.
LSA sophomore David Lein-
heardt, for example, needed to find a
place that rented by the month
because he is going abroad second
semester next year. Leinheardt is
looking into Tower Plaza right now,
he said. Although the apartments are
more expensive, he concluded he
would lose even more money by
leasing a 12-month apartment and
having to sublet it.
Rumsey also emphasized that
students should make appointments
through the agent to see the rental
property because current residents
may be annoyed by the intrusion.
However, Shulak didn't think
making appointments is necessary.
"There is sort of a camaraderie
between the residents and the people
looking because they have been
through it before. My friends and I
just rang peoples doorbells, and we
didn't find any problems."

Bundy nears execution;
confesses to nine murders
STARKE, Fla. - Ted Bundy, moving ever closer to the electric chair,
yesterday tried to head off execution by at last confessing to some of the
dozens of murders he is suspected of committing, authorities said.
Bundy will die at 7 a.m. tomorrow unless the U.S. Supreme Court
stays the execution. The court denied a Bundy appeal just a week ago, as
have all other courts he has turned to since Thursday.
Bundy, scheduled to die for the 1978 kidnap-murder of a 12-year-old
girl from Lake City, Florida, at one time was linked to as many as 36
killings and disappearances of young women in several Western states. He
was being questioned about the deaths of at least 24 women.
Over the weekend, Bundy confessed to killing at least nine young
women in Washington in 1974, said investigator Robert Keppel of the
Washington attorney general's office.
Police patrol Super Bowl
MIAMI - Police set up checkpoints at Joe Robbie Stadium and pa-
trolled Black neighborhoods yesterday as fans arrived in the city for the
Super Bowl.
Three hundred police officers had orders to allow only ticket-holders
close to the stadium north of the city.
In Overtown, where violence erupted last Monday night when a His-
panic police officer fatally shot an unarmed Black motorcyclist, squads of
riot police called "field forces" remained on alert, said Officer M. Tejeda.
Miami had agonized about the tarnish to the city's image from the
looting, shooting and burnings in Overtown and Liberty City, both im-
poverished Black neighborhoods, during Super Bowl week.
But after three days of violence, then three days of tense, but trouble-
free nights, the city turned to football.
Said a banner headline in The Miami Herald, "Put parties, anxiety be-
hind: It's game day."
Economists predict growth
DETROIT - Michigan's economy will show a continued but un-
eventful growth in 1989, leading to a seventh straight year of expansion,
analysts said.
Experts are placing their hopes for expansion on the U.S.-Canadian
free trade agreement.
"No state has a bigger stake in the trade agreement than Michigan,"
said David Littmann, senior economist at Manufacturers National Bank of
Detroit . He estimated that the state exports up to $9 billion annually to
Von Logan of the Michigan Employment Security Commission esti-
mated an increase of 66,000 jobs in Michigan over last year's average to-
tal employment of more than 4.2 million.
Government hiring in Michigan could increase 2.5 percent this year
and next because of preparations for the 1990 census, University
economist George Fulton said.
UAW faces internal conflict
DEARBORN - United Auto Workers union leaders are facing their
most serious internal threat in 40 years from dissenters who advocate less
cooperation with management.
UAW President Owen Bieber and about 350 UAW local leaders will
meet in Dearborn on Friday and Saturday to formulate a strategy to defeat
the dissenters.
Union dissidents are expected to make a power grab at the UAW's
constitutional convention June 18-23 in Anaheim, California, during
which top leaders will be elected and policy will be set for the next three
Region five Director Jerry Tucker and his followers oppose many of
the recent cooperative labor-management contracts in the auto industry.
Union leaders explain that the new contracts give workers a greater
voice in the way things are run, but Tucker says the UAW is growing too
close to management.
Children can sue parents
for dog bites, court says
LANSING - A child bitten by his parents' dog may sue for damages
if the bite was unprovoked, the Michigan Court of Appeals has ruled.
The court on Thursday said the general rule that parents can't be sued
by their children doesn't apply to dog bites under Michigan's dog bite
"In view of the Legislature's determination that dog owners will be li-
able to persons injured while 'lawfully on or in a private place, including
the property of the owner of the dog', we see no sound reason to deny re-

covery on the basis of the parties' familial relationship," the ruling said.
The decision reversed a Kent County District Court ruling in a suit
brought on behalf of Jennifer Thelen, 6, by her mother. Jennifer was bit-
ten in the face by a cocker spaniel while visiting at the home of her father
and step-mother.
The dog bite law clearly intends that only in cases where dogs are pro-
voked into biting are owners spared liability, the court said.
