Two resolutions concerning fi-
nancial aid programs were passed by
the Michigan Collegiate Coalition
(MCC) - a student lobbying group
- last weekend during its national
conference at Grand Valley State
University in Allendale.
One resolution strikes at a recent
law requiring all students who re-
ceive financial aid to sign a contract
saying they will remain drug free
while financial aid is administered.
The law has drawn criticism from
many who say it is unenforceable.
Recently, some members of
Congress have suggested mandatory
drug testing as a way to strengthen
The coalition's resolution op-
poses mandatory drug testing for
students receiving financial aid.
A second MCC resolution op-
posed the linking of financial aid
with mandatory military service.
Last February, U.S. Sen. Sam
Nunn (D-Georgia) proposed that stu-
dents who served for a year in mili-
tary or civil services could receive up
to $10,000 in financial aid without
proving financial need.
Though the proposal was de-
feated,., there is still concern by op-
ponents of the idea that an amended
form of the proposal will be drafted
and passed at the national level.
"Basically, it's a draft of the cco-
nomically disadvantaged," said
Penny Crawley, chair of the MCC.
Though the coalition does not
-support linking military service with
financial aid, a recent proposal by
the MCC at the state level would al-

OAKLAND, CALIF. (AP)-
Residents paused from the sober task
of rebuilding yesterday to celebrate a
World Series championship as the
homeless cheered in Red Cross shel-
ters and fans paraded down streets lit-
tered with earthquake rubble.
"This city needs a celebration,"
James Meade said after the Oakland
Athletics completed a four-game
sweep of the cross-bay rival San
Fransciso Giants with a 9-6 victory
Saturday night. "A little happiness
will help us bounce back."
"People haven't been normal
since the quake. They've been antsy,
on edge, " said Pat Mackey. "Now

first world title since 1974 without
champagne because their community
suffered some of the worst destruc-
tion in the October 17 quake.
"I'm sure we'll have champagne
sometime in the future. Right now,
it's not appropriate, " said A's Vice
President Sandy Anderson. "It's like
a moment of silence."
The city planned a rally this
morning in Jack London Square with
the ballplayers and coaches. No pa-
rade was planned after a series
marked by an 11-day earthquake in-
terruption, the longest in baseball
Oakland is home to the quake's
greatest single point of destruction,
the mile-long section of double-
decked Interstate 880 that collapsed,
killing 39 people.
The quake struck hard at those
least able to afford it. Eight of the
city's aging; low-rent residential ho-
tels were condemed, forcing about
800 people out into the streets.
More than 400 homeless people
sought refuge in Oakland's five Red
For a few hours Saturday night,
however, death and destruction were
forgotten as hundreds of fans
thronged the streets. Many waved
brooms and chanted, "Sweep!
A few blocks away, bricks from
quake-damaged buildings remained
on sidewalks and streets. Less than
two miles north, the twisted rem-
nants of the collapsed highway stood
as a stark reminder of the quake's

earthquake to see the city come back
