against the student movement," said
LASC member David Austin. "We
want Duderstadt to make the same
kind of statement about the Salvado-
ran government's force against stu-
dents and professors."
Six priests and two others were
killed at the University of Central
America in El Salvador. Austin also
cited reports that the University's
sister school in San Salvador has
been "destroyed."
About 150 demonstrators partici-
pated in a three-hour sit-in at Duder-
stadt's office, termed a "very peaceful
demonstration" by Director of Public
Safety Leo Heatley.
Assistant to the President Shirley
Clarkson told the demonstrators that
the President was at a retreat and
could not be reached, but said she
would convey the students' message
to him.
The protesters then confronted
Vice President for Government Rela-
tions and Secretary Richard Kennedy.
Kennedy would not comment on the
administration's behalf, but he said
the protesters' demands would be
given "serious consideration."
After about an hour, Kennedy

told the students that Duderstadt
would meet with 10 of them in a
closed meeting this afternoon to dis-
cuss their demands.
The protesters then asked how the
administrators contacted Duderstadt.
Clarkson responded, "He called us."
Kennedy said, "We called him."
LASC members then charged that
University officials lied to them
about being able to reach Duderstadt.
"I think we have a duty to say some-
thing," said LASC member and RC
sophomore Martha Panschar. "I'm
insulted that we were lied to today."
"I didn't know where he was, and
I didn't know what anyone else
knew," Kennedy said. "(But) we were
obviously able to contact him."
Kennedy said he personally called
Duderstadt. "Somebody gave me a
number; I really can't remember
who," he said.
As the protesters waited, a group
of "concerned faculty and campus re-
ligious leaders" - including Sociol-
ogy Prof. Jeffery Paige, Ethics and
Religion Prof. Bob Hauert, and As-
sociation of Religious Counselors
Executive Committee member Vir-
ginia Peacock- sent a letter to Dud-
erstadt, requesting that he write a let-
ter condemning the deaths at the
University of Central America and
calling for an investigation.

MSA President Aaron Williams,
an engineering senior, said students'
end-of-the-term pressures may
explain the lack of candidates.
He added that two years ago,
when Harris was selected to chair the
commission, the search process took
two months. "These things take
time," he said.
LSA junior Crystal Gardner, a
Black Student Union officer, stressed
the importance of MAC's role as a
unifying organization for minority
groups on campus.

"Through MAC, our organization
is able to talk to and work with
other minority organizations that we
might not normally be working
with," she said.
Without MAC, Gardner said, a
vital support group would be lost.
"Minorities as a whole would
suffer," she said.
Ramon said if the commission
became dormant, the rapport between
minority groups would also suffer.
He said the position demands that
the chair be well organized, able to
effectively communicate with many
campus groups, and have an
understanding of different cultures.

IN*BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Boeing workers end strike
SEATTLE - Boeing Co. and Machinists union negotiators, spurred
by an unusual move by a federal mediator, agreed to a tentative contract
yesterday that could end the 47-day-old strike by 57,000 workers in nine
states.
After 14 hours of talks that ended about 3:30 a.m., chief Boeing
negotiator Larry McKean said the production workers could be back on the
job as early as Wednesday at the world's No. 1 maker of passenger jets.
"This proposal is a substantial improvement," over previous offers,
said Tom Baker, president of Seattle-area District Lodge 751, which
represents nearly 80 percent of the Boeing workers covered by the
Machinists contract.
SF earthquake victim dies
from respiratory failure
SAN FRANCISCO - Buck Helm, the longshoreman rescued from a
flattened freeway 3 1/2 days after the Oct. 17 earthquake, was mourned
yesterday as a gutsy symbol of endurance. His death raised the toll from
the quake to 67.
Helm died of respiratory failure Saturday night at Kaiser-Permanente
medical Center in Oakland, said hospital spokesman Ron Treleven. No
other details on his death were available.
Helm had been taken off a kidney dialysis machine, and doctors had
hoped to wean him from the respirator that had enabled him to breathe.
His death raised the toll from the collapse of the double-deck Nimitz
Freeway in Oakland to 42. Overall, the 7.1-magnitude quake killed 67
people, injured more than 2,800, left more than 14,000 homeless and
caused an estimated $7 billion in damage.
Congress tackles final bills
WASHINGTON D.C. - Congress tried tackling a pile of trouble-
some budget, health and other bills in a rare session yesterday, spurred by
lawmakers' hopes of leaving the capital for the year before Thanksgiving.
House-Senate negotiators, who on Saturday announced an agreement
repealing Medicare benefits for elderly people with lengthy illnesses, met
again yesterday to consider retaining parts of the program.
A separate deficit-reduction bill - also agreed to Saturday by bargain-
ers from the two chambers - also ran into problems. Some legislators
complained it failed to achieve the $14 billion in savings President Bush
has demanded.
Confusion reigned about the effect the measure would have on this
year's federal shortfall, which congressional budget experts think will
reach about $141 billion.
NAACP criticizes Supreme
Court civil rights decision
WASHINGTON D.C.- Federal judges dismissed at least 96
discrimination claims since last June's Supreme Court decision narrowing
the application of an 1866 civil rights law, according to a report released
yesterday.
The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund Inc. surveyed lower
federal court decisions since the Supreme Court held that employees could
not sue under the Civil Rights Act of 1866 to press claims of racial ha-
rassment on the job.
The decision "has had very serious and regrettable consequences for the
men and women who live with the intractable realities of racial discrimi-
nation,"the group said.
The 5-4 ruling by the Supreme Court said the 1866 law, known as
section 1981 of the federal code, was enacted by Congress to allow newly
freed slaves to negotiate and enforce contracts.
EXTRAS
Daily Libels end hiatus, notch
volleyball victory over MSA
The Michigan Daily, a renowned volleyball powerhouse, rose to accept
a Michigan Student Assembly challenge, and beat the legislators in a
best-3-of-5 volleyball match Saturday.
A quick win in the first game, spearheaded by Daily MVPs Mark Katz
and John Niyo, made it very clear that the Daily's finely tuned volleyball
machine was just too much for the motley set of representatives.
After the briefly distracted journalists allowed the MSA team to
squeeze out a narrow victory in the second game, the Daily went on to
claim the two remaining matches.
The final results: three games to one, the press over the newsmakers.
"We were on a mission," said Niyo, a Daily sports staffer. "I saw the
fear in their eyes."

MSA President Aaron Williams dismissed the Daily victory and called
for a rematch. "The odds were against us overall," he said, noting that
MSA fielded a team of only seven members. "We still played a valiant
and very good game."
Uh, sure Aaron. Whatever you say.
What lesson does the Daily victory hold for MSA and other upstart
campus groups, searching vainly for a way to assert some face-saving
sense of parity with the Daily? Quite simple. It won't happen. Just be
grateful we're so modest.
