Council
Ivotes to
,welcome
Meese
BY NOAH FINKEL
The presence in Ann Arbor of
embattled former Attorney General
Edwin Meese at this weekend's Fed-
eralist Society symposium has led to
some controversy on campus, but
Monday night the Ann Arbor City
Council passed a resolution
welcoming the Federalists to Ann
Arbor.
The purpose of the resolution is
"so I can go to the convention, go to
the cocktail hour, and present them a
plaque that says 'Hi, welcome to
Ann Arbor,"' explained coun-
cilmember Tom Richardson (R-Fifth
Ward), who sponsored the resolu-
tion.
The Federalist Society, an
organization of conservative and lib-
ertarian legal scholars, is holding its
Eighth Annual National Symposium
on March 10 and 11 at the Law
School.
Richardson,'a member of the
Federalist Society, said he is "sure
there will be all kinds of demonstra-
tions" because of Meese's appear-
ance.
Councilmember Jeff Epton (D-
Third Ward) went along with the
resolution, saying, "I don't mind
anyone coming to Ann Arbor as
long as they don't break the law."
Epton said he was referring to
Meese and U.S. Appeals Court
Judge and one-time nominee to the
U.S. Supreme Court Douglas Gins-
burg, but added he doesn't really
"mind a guy who does a little dope."
Epton jokingly tried to amend the
resolution: "I propose we keep an
eye on Ed Meese."
Councilmember Larry Hunter (D-
First Ward) said he would not vote
against the welcoming but said
Meese "is not welcome anywhere'
around me."
Richardson said the concern about
Meese's visit to Ann Arbor was
echoed by a law student who said,
"Oh no, I just replaced all the win-
dows because of the last time Meese
came here."
Meese last visited the campus in'
Feb. 1987, where he was met by
300 demonstrators, many of them
hurling snowballs at him.+

Interview

LSA student Ducky Warmouth is interviewed by LSA senior Julie Fingersh of B-Side News Magazine,
who was asking how students feel about the parking ticket system in Ann Arbor.
Zogby says debate needed to
resolve Middle East conflict

BY ALEX GORDON
It seems just yesterday when
George Bush was telling Americans
to read his lips, and Michael Dukakis
was reminding voters that he was the
son of Greek immigrants. Now,just as
the dust has settled from one presiden-
tial election, it's time to kick off an-
other one.
The new president and vice presi-
dent of the Michigan Student Assem-
bly will be elected by students on
March 21 and 22. This year's race
features four candidates for the presi-
dent: Rob Bell, Zachary Kittrie, Julie
Murray, and Aaron Williams. All four
candidates currently serve on the as-
sembly.
LSA rep. Bell, who is currently the
Communications
Committee Chair,
is running under
theparty Student's
Choice. In addi-
tiontoBell,andhis k
vice presidential
candidate James ,
McBain, Student's
Choice is listing 17
other candidates Kittrie
for the 24 vacant
MSA representa-
tive posts.
Calling for
MSA to take "a
change of direc-
tion," Bell said his
party believes the
assembly "needs
to place more_
emphasis on cam- Murray
pus issues." He cited the debate on a
mandatory class on racism, and sky-
rocketing tuition as issues in which
MSA has not gotten involved.
External Relations Chair Kittrie,
an LSA rep., and vice presidential
candidate Fredericka Bashir, are run-
ning under the United Students party.

Kittrie stressed that the 18 students
running on the ticket are "experienced
in campus activities."
The party is committed to building
MSA, improving safety, and holding
down tuition. Kittrie said his party
will be able to "see the big picture on
issues... We'll get the job done."
Murray's Student Power party is
aiming to "get more women and
minorities on MS A." Murray said that
the ticket contains two-thirds women
and one-third minorities. Ahmar Iqbal,
an LSA rep., is the vice presidential
candidate.
Murray stressed that her party's
members are the most experienced.
Student Power will work for students'
rights and to represent students better,
Murray said. "We
will bring MSA
back to a point of
respect so we can
really work on
those issues," she
> said.
Engineering
rep. Williams is
running under the
Bell Conservative
Coalition party.
Williams said that
the party's candi-
dates are "almost
totally fresh
people" because
we"don'twantto
propagate a sys-
tem that doesn't
work anymore."
Williams Rose Karadsheh
is Williams' running mate.
Williams said that although the
party is called "Conservative Coali-
tion," it is in fact "moderate, or fis-
cally conservative." Williams said they
will work for minorities and women,
an MSA scholarship fund to battle
tuition, and increased safety.

BY LAURA COHN
Both Palestinians and Israelis
should follow a policy of
"responsibility and tolerance" in
solving the Middle East crisis, said
James Zogby, executive director of
the Arab-American Institute.
Zogby addressed a crowd of 150
last night in Hutchins Hall in an ad-
dress on free speech and anti-
Semitism. Zogby said his visit to
the University was not motivated by
local tensions, but rather by national
concern.
"If I thought the political tension
here (at the University) and series of
events were isolated incidents, I
wouldn't be here," Zogby said. "The
intensity of the situation itself
brought me here."
Zogby believes tension between
American Arabs and American Jews
will become more intense with time.
To help dissolve tensions, Zogby
called for more accurate coverage by
the media that will squelch the anti-
Arab racism and anti-Semitism evi-
dent today. He also commented on

the anti-Semitic charges against the
Michigan Daily.
"As far as I can see, on the
whole, there's been a free exchange
of views here at Michigan in the
'It's difficult for Jews to
look at Israel and have
self-definition threat-
ened.'
-James Zogby
student paper. The editorials fol-
lowed by responses have been in-
tense, but the open discussion is of
great importance," said Zogby.
And open talks are the only way
to satisfy both sides of the conflict,
Zogby said, adding that both sides
share equal responsibility.
But the U.S. is not carrying out
any meaningful dialogue, he said.
"Our Congressmen are afraid to
attack the issue. There is no debate.
There must be free expression. It

will give way to painful expression,
but in the end a peaceful solution
will be reached," Zogby said.
Zogby also said that while the
rest of the world debates Middle East
policy, there has been a "deadly si-
lence" in the U.S. about an intelli-
gent Middle East policy.
"We cannot do what Khomenini
suggests. We cannot kill every time
we are offended," said Zogby.
Because the U.S. has invested
more money in the Middle East than
anywhere else in the world, the crisis
is a critical international issue, he
said.
Zogby added that many American
Jews feel defensive about the Israeli
government's policies toward Pales-
tinians in Gaza and the West Bank,
said Zogby.
"It's difficult for Jews to look at
Israel and have self-definition threat-
ened," he said. "They had a dream of
a state, and the Palestinians were an
obstacle to the fulfillment of the
dream, and, to them, it then became
a nightmare."

like weather more than art."
The artist said that frequently
white people masquerade as Amer-
ica's- native artists, creating self-
serving images. Regretfully, when
true Native American Art is finally

accepted, the style ends up fulfilling
the comfortable fantasy held by the
non-Indian, said Heap of Birds.
He emphasized that people must
begin to understand that the domi-
nant white culture is not in a posi-
tion to teach the essence of the Na-
tive American outlook, but can only
learn.

who voted in the fall at each loca-
tion, the number of seats up for
election at each school, and the
number of students enrolled at that
school. He said this system would
maximize the potential of the as-
sembly's resources.
Many assembly members, how-
ever, countered that this formula
discriminated against North Campus
students and was not mathematically
sound.
Phillips expressed concerns about
election violations which he con-
tends the Engineering Council made
in the fall election. The Council had
volunteered to staff the extra polling
sites on North Campus. Engineering
rep. John Coleman denied any
violations by the council.

Housing
Continued from Page 1
Richardson, the co-chair of the
council's housing policy task force,
said he thought a face-to-face discus-
sion of the problems would be more
productive, but no representatives
from HAC had approached him. "I
wish they could sit down with me

and see what can be done," he said.
Earl Uomoto, another HAC
member who has helped to organize
the rallies, said that the group hasn't
reached more people because it has
recieved minimal media attention.
Describing the future of the
group's struggle, Uomoto said, "It's
going to take a lot of pressure from
a lot of different groups to affect the
city council. It's going to be a long
haul."
