Poll shows students
keep credit cards

Julie Henly, a planning commit-
tee member, said, "Battering is a se-
rious matter and speaking out em-
powers people." More than 4,000
women are killed by abusive spouses
and boyfriends each year, Henly said.
"I'm a survivor and this is a very
empowering experience," said Mindy
Adelman, an LSA senior. "I want to
support other survivors."
The largest-ever audience for the
event wore blue-checked arm bands
to denote that they had been sur-
vivors of domestic violence or blue
bands to indicate their solidarity with
domestic violence survivors.

The vigil was one of the many
events the Domestic Violence Pro-
ject is sponsoring to publicize Do-
mestic Violence Awareness Month.
The program included announce-
ments that named the women killed
by domestic violence in Michigan
last year, a moment of silence to
remember them, and speak-out ses-
sions for survivors of domestic vio-
lence. A new program this year let
young people discuss their experi-
ences with domestic violence.
The event ended with a march to
the Ann Arbor City Courthouse.

Credit card applications -
they're everywhere.
You find them in the mail, on
bulletin boards, in classrooms, and
always at the bottom of your Ul-
rich's bag.
Why are credit card companies so
persistent about enrolling student
members? The companies, said Gary
Bernard, president of Michigan Na-
tional Bank, are trying to establish
credit card loyalty.
In his experience, Bernard said,
new student card-holders keep the
first credit card they get. Therefore,
in a competitive market, it is impor-
tant to be the company that issues
the first card, he said.
In a Daily poll, conducted ran-
domly this week among 83 students,
82 percent had at least one credit
card. Many students had more than
one, and some even had three or four
credit cards. The most popular cards
were Visa and American Express.
Students said the most common
reasons they keep their cards are for
convenience and emergency use.
They said the credit card could bail
'I just keep buying and
buying.'

Melendez, on why he

credit card.

card. Law School student Kirk Liley
cited the "great deal with Northwest
(Airlines, which offered $99 round
trip vouchers with an American Ex-
press card)."
Bill McClelland, also a law stu-
dent, pointed out that "you can
order... everything on the phone."
In order to attract students, credit
card companies will often make spe-
cial concessions like guaranteed ak-
proval, that allow students to obtain
a card easily. These lax requirements,
however, often mean lower credit
limits.
Seventy-eight percent of the stu-
dent card-holders pay their own bills
for at least one of their cards. All but
one credit card holder said they pay
the bills on time.
Every student except one said
they intended to keep their credi
cards, a figure that strongly supports
Bernard's claim of "loyalty." Tat
one exception, LSA junior Ed Me-
lendez, said he is getting rid of ls
card because "I just keep buying and
buying."
The survey also indicated that
credit cards rarely lead young con4
sumers into maniacal shopping
sprees. Sue Kistka, a senior nursing
student, was one of nine students
who said their buying could get out
of hand.
"I panic and just start dialingI
800 numbers at random," Kistka
joked.
Although it may seem as if the
companies are spending exorbitant
amounts of money marketing stu-
dents, Bernard said the actual percent
of marketing guided to that demo-
graphic group is "not a big portion
at this point."

the Federal Building last night, was attended by 300 men and women.

BUSINESS

Bill may give citizens more neighborh

good control

LANSING (AP) - Rapidly
,growing neighborhoods that want to
control development should be able
to vote to purchase "open spaces"
and preserve them as parks or wood-
*;lands, an Oakland County lawmaiker
said yesterday.
Rep. David Honigman (R-West
Bloomfield) has proposed legislation
that would allow resident groups to
gather and form special assessment

districts that could regulate what
happens to their neighborhoods.
With a petition signed by more
than 50% of a 'designated area's resi-
dents, the special district could pre-
vent buildings from going up or
trees from coming down. The
neighbors could tax themselves to
obtain the money to purchase such
land, so they would preserve and
maintain it themselves.

Township boards would have to
approve the actions, and the entire
municipality would not be burdened
with taxes for something that only a
few residents would benefit from,
Honigman said.
The bills were prompted by rapid
growth in Honigman's district which
has caused residents to worry that
residential, commercial and industrial
development will take over all of
their parks and recreation areas, or
"open spaces," he said.
But the legislation would also
apply to urban areas such as Detroit,
where residents could pool their re-
