Jeff Veach, chair of the Michigan
Student Assembly's External Rela-
tions Committee and a LSA senior,
said his committee had no formal
plans to address Bush's budget, but
would look into the issue.
"I understand that budget cuts
have to happen, but I'd like to see
them take place somewhere other
than the higher education budget,"
Also disturbed by Bush's pro-
posed cuts, the United States Student
Association (USSA), plans to target
Congress for increased appropria-
tions for financial aid.
The USSA will lead a national
student effort to contact members of
Congress, which will take place on
"Students of the 1990s will not
be wooed by the empty promises of
the 'Education President' and must
turn to Congress for real support of
higher education," Marley said.
USSA is encouraging students to
telephone members of Congress on
February 14, directing their calls to
House Speaker Thomas Foley (D-
Washington), Senate Majority
Leader George Mitchell (D-Maine),
as well as the members of the House
and Senate Budget Committees, urg-
ing them to "Make education the
number one funding priority for fis-
cal year 1991."

"People would like to see some kind
of affirmative action to assure that
things have really changed."
One instance when MAC mem-
bers felt they were unjustly left out
of the decision-making process was
when the administration decided to
consider combining some aspects of
academic services and student ser-

that political changes he has pushed
through in almost five years in
power have in effect created a multi-
party system already.
He called into question a tenet of
Leninism - democratic centralism,
the theory that requires strict adher-
ence by the party's 20 million
members to decisions once they have
been made at the top.
"The party's renewal presupposes
its thorough, comprehensive democ-
ratization and rethinking the princi-
ple of democratic centralism with
emphasis on democracy and power of
the party masses," Gorbachev said.
He proposed the Central Com-
mittee meet again in about three
weeks to consider new party rules.
Gorbachev indicated he did not
foresee the reform overturning the
country's socialist system as well as
the communists' assurance of power.
The party was "ready to act with
due account for these new circum-
stances, cooperate and conduct a dia-
logue with all organizations honor-
ing the Soviet Constitution and the
social system it endorses," he said.
The Soviet president said he had
hoped 1989 would be the turning
point for his economic reforms, but
acknowledged that "recent events
have shown there has been no
change for the better."

Levin speaks of clean-air bill
WASHINGTON - Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan) warned autoworkers
yesterday that two provisions in pending clean-air legislation would put
many of them on the unemployment line while doing little to protect the
"The Senate clean air bill is needlessly going to take your jobs," Levin
said in a speech to 1,300 United Auto Workers delegates meeting in
Levin is waging a high-profile campaign to strip from the bill a re-
quirement that manufacturers' new car fleets average 40 miles per gallon
by the year 2000, up from the current 27 mpg standard.
Supporters say the improved mileage would reduce carbon dioxide
emissions believed to contribute to global warming. Opponents say the
requirement would lower the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
by one percent while adding $750 to the cost of each new car.
The Senate is expected to resume debate on the bill this week.
Environmentalists say Bush
is avoiding global warming
WASHINGTON - President George Bush called for balancing eco-
nomic and environmental concerns when dealing with global warming,
Environmentalists accused him of siding with industry and avoiding a
pressing world problem.
Bush, speaking to an international conference on the threat of a world
"greenhouse" effect, said "our policies must be consistent with economic
Environmentalists at the conference suggested the problem was not
scientific but resulted from a lack of U.S. leadership in dealing with the
On Capitol Hill, Sen. Albert Gore Jr., (D-Tenn) said the president
was "moving as slow as molasses" on the issue when many scientists al-
ready are convinced decisive action is needed.
Workers lobby for $5 wage
DETROIT - Workers and union officials testified yesterday in favor
of bills to raise Michigan's minimum wage to five dollars and against
two others that would pay teenagers and tipped employees sub-minimum
"The current minimum wage for a full-time worker is not even close
to a livable salary," said state Rep. Jaunita Watkins (D-Detroit), chair of
the House Labor Committee, which held the public hearing.
"Even the new federal level works out to just about $8,840 a year,
which is hardly enough to support a single person, let alone the families
who often rely upon a minimum-wage worker," she said.
The Michigan State Chamber of Commerce and six other business
groups previously have opposed efforts to increase the state's minimum
wage, saying such legislation would force thousands of employees out of
Revitalized law hold parents
liable for minors' misdeeds
GRAND RAPIDS - A rarely used 20-year-old city ordinance that
holds parents criminally responsible for the misdeeds of their children is
being used more often to stem the city's burgeoning juvenile crime rate.
No one had been charged with violating the ordinance for at least fif-
teen years until about four months ago, Grand Rapids Assistant City At-
torney Robert Atkinson said yesterday.
Since then, seven people have been charged under the ordinance, which
holds parents can be charged if they fail to exercise "sufficient or reason-
able control" over their minor children to prevent them from breaking the
The misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a
Detroit is believed to have a similar ordinance, but it has yet to be en-
forced, said Carolynn Tujaka, assistant director for public education of the

When lawyers sprout wings
SENECA FALLS, NY - A man appeared in a village court yesterday
with a rooster tucked under his arm and told the judge the bird was the
only legal counsel he could afford.
The judge cried fowl.
David Ashley was charged last month with raising poultry without a
permit, but his case waspostponed until he could get a lawyer.
When Ashley appeared in court with the rooster, village Justice Gor-
don Tetor told him to get rid of the bird.
"It was the only legal counsel I could afford," Ashley told the judge.
"I don't think he could speak," Tetor said.
"Sure they can, they speak to me all the time," Ashley said.
After removing the chicken, Ashley said he would represent himself
but wasn't ready to goto trial. Tetor adjourned the case until March 5.
Ashley and his wife, Lynda, have about 20 chickens at their home that
they say are pets for their two children.
