Gwillin: hardly your typical professor

by Pam Jacoby
Acting 101 is hardly your typical
class, and Sara Jane Gwillim is
hardly your typical teacher.
For one thing, each class begins
with the students forming a circle
and beginning their "warm-up" exer-
cises. When was the last time your
political science teacher asked your
class to do neck rolls or wiggle their
tongues?
Gwillim urges her students to
"bring energy to class." This energy,
she said, helps students gain the con-
fidence needed to develop better
communication skills.
Originally from England,
Gwillim has been surrounded by act-
ing since childhood - her father,
half brother and husband are all ac-
tors. Gwillim has appeared numer-
ous times on English television and

Broadway for Glenda Jackson's Lady
Macbeth in Macbeth, and had small
parts in You Never Can Tell, Major
Barbara, and Otherwise England..
Gwillim does not use a textbook
in class because she feels the best
lesson .she can give her students is
through her personal acting experi-
ence and by teaching that "energy."
A typical day in class consists of
moving through a variety of exer-
cises. One day, for example, the stu-
dents, standing in a circle, were
asked to give their interpretation of a
positive or negative statement.
One student screamed, "midterms
suck!" That statement was then re-
peated by each student in the circle,
but each student had to say the
phrase in a new way without chang-
ing the words. After this another

in many Broadway productions. Re-
cently she was an understudy on
person had to say a positive state-
ment like "I passed French!" Again,
each student in the class said this
phrase in their own creative way.
Although it is an acting class, a
maximum of only three acting ma-
jors are allowed in Gwillim's three
sections. A lot of students take this
course "to get over the anxiety of
talking in front of people," claims
Scott Reese, an LSA sophomore in
Gwillim's class.
Reese said he believes the idea of
the class is to "make a fool out of
yourself, because if you can do what
we do in front of people then you'll
be a lot more comfortable giving a
speech or presentation in front of
people."

New bill will stop state funding to colleges
that allow alcohol Ads. on campus

by Amy Quick
Daily Staff Writer
Any university or college which
allows the promotion of alcoholic
beverages on its campus could lose
all federal funding, if a bill currently
under consideration is approved by
Congress.
The bill, proposed by senators
Herbert Kohl (D-Wis.) and Jeff
Bingaman (R-N. Mex.), would cut
off federal funding, including guaran-
feed student loan programs, to col-
leges and universities nationwide
that continued to permit alcohol
promotion on campus such as beer
ads in student newspapers and events
sponsored by brewers.
The goal of the bill is to encour-
age Universities and colleges to cur-
tail alcohol use on campuses, said
Bev Anthony, a spokesperson for
Sen. Kohl.
Spokespersons at local bars were
not worried about the bill.
The University-owned U-Club's
advertising does not refer to alcohol,

said employee Linda Chizek. "It
should affect us very little."
Randy Demankowski, general
manager of O'Sullivan's on S. Uni-
versity - this year's Homecoming
sponsor - said that while
O'Sullivan's does advertise alcohol,
he doesn't think the bill would hurt
the pub's business. "I think (alcohol
is) one of those things that you re-
ally don't need to advertise, espe-
cially in this location."
Campus newspapers, however,
generally depend on advertising to
stay in business. The Daily runs ads
from many campus liquor stores and
bars, and has run large ads for na-
tional breweries in the past.
But Daily Sales Manager Jennifer
Chappell said while she is not happy
about the bill, she does not think it
would cause the Daily to lose many
ads.
"Probably these accounts (affected
by the law) would run something
else," she said. "There isn't a great
volume in the first place" of alcohol-
related ads.

The Daily, along with numerous
other college newspapers, runs as an
insert U., the National College
Newspaper, several times a year.
Newspapers between $1,500 and
$1,700 to run the insert, which
nearly always contains ads for major
alcohol distributors.
Anna Lee Ryan, U. operations di-
rector, said the publication would
definitely be impacted by the bill,
should it pass. While she said she
does not advocate abuse of alcohol,
and feels that ads should be aimed
only at those of legal age, she be-
lieves U. will not change its current
advertising policies unless the bill
passes.
"It's a free country. Some col-
lege-age students are over 21. We
have the right to run the ads," Ryan
said.
Ryan noted, however, that some
schools already do not accept alcohol
related ads. As a courtesy to these
colleges, she said, U. runs public
service announcements in place of
the ad.
Though the Daily does accept
U. 's alcohol ads, it has in the past
rejected some issues of U. because of
alcohol ads with sexist images.
Other college newspapers agreed
that the bill would have some effect,
but not a major one.
Beth Zoellner, from Michigan
State's State News advertising staff,
said, "If we lose money, it would be
from the local bars." The State
News runs bar ads every day, she
said. "The ads aren't big, but they
are consistent."
Mark Maselli, sales manager
from the Ohio State University
Lantern, agreed. He said their paper
runs three to four beer ads each quar-
ter. The Lantern also runs ads for

local bars, but most of the ads con-
cern specific events rather than
brands of alcohol, he said.
Maselli added, "It is a point of
concern, but the state of Ohio al-
ready has very restricted laws con-
cerning alcohol ads. Prices can not
be advertised."
On the other hand, Sean Bodner,
advertising sales manager for the
University of Illinois' Daily Illini,
said that bars in Champaign-Urbana
have almost completely voluntarily
stopped running alcohol advertising.
In fact, Bodner said some bars
now run full page ads in the Illini
telling students not to drink and
drive. Still, Bodner said, the volume
of bar ads has decreased since the
voluntary agreement. "Some of them
that ran 300 inches in the past now
run nothing."
In a prepared statement, An-
heuser-Busch Inc. Vice President and
Group Executive Stephen K. Lam-
bright said he finds the bill "flawed."
"No one argues with sensible
steps to combat abusive or underage
drinking, but this measure goes too
far," he said. "At a time when federal
funds to higher education are decreas-
ing, beer advertising of collegiate
sporting events provides tens of mil-
lions of dollars in badly needed rev-
enue every year to institutions of
higher learning."
As for the University, President
Duderstat has not yet seen the bill
and said he will not comment until
he has seen it.
The bill was introduced as part of
a larger bill and was passed by the
Senate in early October. It is cur-
rently awaiting consideration on the
House floor, which may not occur
until 1990, according to Anthony. If
the bill is passed, it will become a
law on October 1, 1990.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
MADD begins holiday effort
LANSING - A national group fighting drunken driving kicked off its
annual holiday "Tie One On" campaign yesterday in a bid to publicize the
need to keep Michigan drivers sober and safe.
"Sober driving during the holidays is not only a necessary goal, it's an
achievable goal," said Bethany Goodman, executive director of Mothers
Against Drunk Driving, in a ceremony at the state Capitol.
The group handed out red ribbons, to be tied to a vehicle to signify the
driver's commitment to avoid drinking and driving.
"Each year, I see more and more people joining our forces in the red-
ribbon campaign," Michigan State Police Director Col. Ritchie Davis
told about 100 people at the Capitol ceremony. "Because of their collec-
tive efforts, I believe we are making good, solid progress."
The Michigan red-ribbon program runs until Jan. 1. The national
MADD program began Thursday.
Boeing strike nears an end
SEATTLE - Machinists who struck Boeing Co. for 48 days were de-
ciding yesterday on a three-year contract offer that covers 57,800 workers
in at least nine states that could become a standard for the aerospace indus-
try.
Votes on the agreement with the world's biggest manufacturer of
commercial jets were scheduled in the evening in Seattle, Portland, Ore.,
and Wichita, Kan., but results were not expected until early today.
Tom Baker, president of Seattle's District Lodge 751 of the Interna-
tional Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, predicted the
deal would be overwhelmingly approved. Boeing chief negotiator Larry
McKean said strikers could be back at work tomorrow.
The company's second-longest strike virtually halted production, delay-
ing deliveries to airlines at a time of growing passenger loads and rising
concern over aging jets.
Donations to Michigan food
pantries falls off for holidays
LANSING - More Michigan poor will turn to food banks for their
holiday meals this year, but emergency food service officials said yester-
day they fear their cupboards will be bare due to plunging corporate dona-
tions.
Karin Uhlich, executive director of the Food Bank Council of Michi-
gan, said business is up at many of the state's 1,300 food pantries, forc-
ing some of them to cut their hours or limit their aid to most desperate
cases.
"What I'm hearing is, in fact, things are getting much worse," she
said.
"It's no longer once every six months somebody runs out (of food) be-
cause they had to pay for a prescription or something. It's much more
chronic."
Individual and community donations are stable this year and usually
increase around the holiday season, but food banks are getting fewer and
fewer donations from national food corporations, Uhlich said.
Bush vetoes D.C. spending bill
ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE - President Bush yesterday vetoed the
bill appropriating money for the District of Columbia because it would
allow funds from local taxes to be spent on abortion.
It was the second time Bush vetoed the D.C. appropriations bill over
the abortion issue. The earlier veto was in October.
Bush said the bill "would permit congressionally appropriated local
funds to be used for abortion on demand with no restriction whatsoever.
As a matter of the law the use of local funds in the District of Columbia
must be approved by the Congress and the president."
The bill would have restricted use of Medicaid funds for abortions only
to save the life of the mother. But Bush objected to what he called
"abortion on demand" paid for with other funds derived from local taxes
but also appropriated by Congress.

"Mayor" Tandy Watts said, "I would

drastic change. Thanks for sharing
and caring, we shall return." Watts
and the other 12 committee members
then turned the chambers back over

Tom Richardson (R-Fifth Ward)

constructive decision."
Larry Hunter (D-First Ward) dis-
agreed, "I was moved by the sincer-
ity of their remarks. I think they did
a good job."
Hunter said he thought the
demonstration would give
"momentum" to council members
who have had concerns about afford-
able housing.
"There are better uses for our
money right now (than parking)."
He said businesses should be paying
for additional parking, instead of the
city.

ROMANIA

BUSINESS

f

Continued from page 1
The Romanian leader, a maverick
who refused to follow the Soviets in
breaking relations with Israel in
1967, would not join the invasion of
Czechoslovakia in 1968 and has an
independent foreign policy, left no
doubt yesterday that he does not
agree with Mikhail Gorbachev's
more liberal Kremlin.
In Romania, he said, there will
be "still more powerful growth of

the party's leading role," and the
state's already pervasive presence
"will even grow in the organization
and management" of the nation.
"The party cannot give up its
revolutionary responsibility," he told
more than 3,000 delegates in Palace
Hall. "It cannot surrender its histori-
cal mission to another force."
His clear reference was to reform
in the Soviet Union, radical change
in Poland and Hungary and the fall
of orthodox Communist regimes in
East Germany and Bulgaria.
