Sexual Assault
Week to begin
by Laura Counts
Daily Women's Issues Reporter

by Ross Tanzer
Representatives from law schools
around the country are scheduled to
mleet with nearly 1,000 University
W'students during the 15th annual
Prelaw Day today at the Michigan
Union Ballroom.
The event, sponsored by the
Career Planning and Placement
offices, will include representatives
from Harvard, Yale, Northwestern,
Yulane, Marquette, and New York
universities, and the University of
California-Los Angeles.
Each. year, Jack Tinker, pre-
professional counselor for the
University, said, the day is one of
the largest of its kind in the country.
He also commented that the
program attracts students from the
entire region and that "prospective
law students from around the state
are expected to attend."
Prelaw day is intended to help
any individuals interested in
sing a law career. Information
and advice will be presented to
inform students of admissions
procedures, curriculum descriptions,
and job opportunities available in
the legal profession.
Other universities use Prelaw
Day to their benefit as well, hoping
to attract University of Michigan
students. The Indiana University
School of Law, for example, is
planning to send Dean Frank
Motley to -participate in the day.
Katy Kendall, an LSA
sophomore, has had the day marked
on her calendar. "It's a great
opportunity for those students
interested in law to get an overview
of what is available out there and to
learn what will be expected of them
in the future," she said.
A similar program, Graduate
School and MBA Day, will be
taking place Oct. 31 for students
interested in pursuing business and
other liberal arts careers.

Tonight, a workshop on prevent-
ing acquaintance rape will open a
week of activities planned for the
fifth annual Sexual Assault Aware-
ness Week.
Sponsored by the Sexual Assault
Prevention and Awareness Center
(SAPAC), the week is aimed to raise
awareness of sexual assault, get
more people involved in prevention,
and "focus (SAPAC's) energy," said
John Ifcher, the center's men's is-
sues coordinator.
Tonight's participatory workshop
will define sexual assault and allow
people to discuss myths and facts
about acquaintance rape.
For example, more than 80 per-
cent of all rapes and 90 percent of
rapes on college campuses are com-
mitted by an acquaintance, according
to statistics prepared by the center.
On Wednesday, a SAPAC coun-
selor will run a brown bag lunch and
discussion titled, "Friends Helping
Friends: How to Help a Survivor of
Sexual Assault."
Ifcher explained that the term
"survivor" is used rather than
"victim" to refer to someone who
has been sexually assaulted because
it implies recovery from a life
threatening situation, while "victim"

"reemphasizes the victimization and
takes the power away."
Men's roles in society will be the
subject of a film and subsequent dis-
cussion Wednesday evening. Ifcher
said men must become actively in-
volved in stopping sexual assault
because more than 99 percent of
them are initiated by men.
The week's activities will culmi-
nate with a "speak out" on Thursday,
during which survivors will talk
with discussion participants about
what happened to them.
Last year, more than 600 people
attended the speak out, Ifcher said.
Survivors are given a choice to
speak from a media microphone,
from which the media can quote
them, a non-media microphone, or
an anonymous mike from a back
Members of fraternities and soror-
ities will become involved in Sexual
Assault Awareness Week on Sunday
afternoon, with educational programs
on acquaintance rape, sexually
transmitted diseases, AIDS, and sex-
ism in advertising to be held at the
Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house.
The workshops are sponsored by In-
terfraternity Council, Panhellenic
Council, and AEn.

Jackson speaks in support of
striking airline machinists

by Hunter Van Valkenburgh
CANTON - Striding in to the
theme from "Rocky," the Rev. Jesse
Jackson delivered a rousing speech to
an enthusiastic crowd in a packed
union hall Friday to support the
striking Eastern Airlines workers in
The rally was a fundraiser to ben-
efit the 37 families of striking ma-
chinists in the Detroit area. The pi-
lots and flight attendants - though
not literally on strike - are honor-
ing picket lines in solidarity with
the machinists. At the rally, speak-
ers pointed out that since March,
only 3 percent of union members na-

Whats happening in Ann Arbor today

tionwide have crossed picket lines.
The Machinists Union Local 141
has been on strike since March 4
over cutbacks in wages, personnel,
and health benefits demanded by
Eastern owner Frank Lorenzo. Since
Lorenzo purchased the airline in a
heavily leveraged buy-out, he must
drastically cut costs to pay the inter-
est on the bonds issued for the pur-
Union figures say Eastern is los-
ing almost $2 million per day and
that Lorenzo is destroying the airline
and selling off its assets in order to
bust the union. A similar situation
occurred in 1985 when Continental
Airlines - another Lorenzo airline
- went bankrupt during a flight at-
tendant strike and all union contracts
were nullified by bankruptcy law.
Continental planes are currently
picking up the slack at Eastern, and
the union urges a boycott of both
Jackson praised the machinists
for their perseverance. The United
Auto Workers, the United Mine
Workers of America (UMWA), the
Communication Workers of America
(CWA), and the AFL-CIO are all
supporting the Eastern strike. He
cited the other strikes still going on
- CWA in New Jersey, the UMWA
in Virginia, and the Machinists in
Seattle - which have idled more
than 100,000 workers.

Jackson said the Bush Adminis-
tration is largely to blame for the
problem for not invoking federal law
to force a settlement of the strike.
He lashed out at policies that en-
courage transfers of wealth to the
rich and "bloated" military budgets
while simultaneously cutting fund-
ing for social programs.
"Trickle down works for dogs and
fire hydrants, but not for workers,"
Jackson said. "We do not need a na-
tional Stealth plan, but a national
health plan."
The capital gains cut and policies
that encourage American companies
to locate factories out of the country
are the factors responsible for unem-
ployment, poverty, and their atten-
dant ills, said Jackson. "It just
makes more sense to fight a war on
drugs with a war on poverty."
Jackson called for a new national
investment policy, saying more than
$2.5 trillion in government and pri-
vate pension funds - "workers'
money" - needs to be invested in
American cities rather than on ex-
pensive military hardware and for-
eign corporations.
The union's current strategy is to
try to prosecute Lorenzo under fed-
eral law for secret deals made with
Eastern past President Frank Borman
and to continue the strike until
Lorenzo is forced to sell the airline
or come to the bargaining table.

eye. "We're going to give everyone flowers and peanuts and things like
Kreye said the complimentary gifts and prizes include a $50 savings
bond, a round-trip ticket to Chicago, gold earrings, and smaller gifts such as
roses, stuffed animals, and bagels.
"We want people to visit our street with a feeling of pleasant anticipa-
tion," said Nisi Shawl, manager of the Dawn Treader Bookstore. "If it works
out well, we'll probably come up with more ways to show our apprecia-

Invites applications for its doctoral degree program in policy
analysis. Deadline for 1990-1991 is February 1, 1990. RGS,
which is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools
and Colleges, is an integral part of the RAND Corporation. Its
curriculum consists of rigorous multidisciplinary course work
including quantitative methods, economics, social science, tech-
nology and policy workshops, combined with on-the-job training
(OJT), leading to the dissertation and award of the Ph.D. in Policy
Analysis. Subfields of specialization include health policy,
national security policy, and Soviet studies. Students typically
receive OJT support equivalent to doctoral fellowships.
Fellowships are also available for applicants with special inter-
ests in health policy or Soviet international behavior. A master's
degree, or equivalent post-bachelor's degree training and expe-
rience, is required for admission. A representative of The Rand
Graduate School will be at the Career Planning and Placement
Center in the Student Activities Building on
Wednesday, October 25, 1989.
