State House
*budget bills
LANSING (AP) - Having the National Guard tear
down crack houses was in, and allowing communities
to veto nearby airport expansion was out, as the Michi-
gan House took action yesterday on several budget bills.
Lawmakers approved bills detailing 1990-91 appro-
priations for the departments of military affairs, state
police, transportation, and natural resources.
They still must be approved by the Senate, and
*likely will end up in a conference committee before go-
ing to Gov. James Blanchard.
The focus of discussion on the $16.6 million mili-
tary affairs budget was on $1.2 million to pay for hav-
ing the National Guard tear down abandoned homes be-
ing used as drug parlors.
Though nearly all lawmakers support the concept,
several have banded together with a "no new programs"
pledge, saying they won't support new initiatives un-
less current programs are fully funded and extra revenue
is available.
"We haven't got the money to pay for it, I don't
know how we can support it," said Rep. Don Gilmer
"Any damn fool could come here and just keep
spending money for old programs," said Rep. Richard
Young (D-Dearborn Heights) and vice chair of the
House Appropriations Committee. "There are problems
out there that are new problems."
Rep. Greg Pitoniak (D-Taylor) criticized Republi-
cans for their stance because of a flier they mailed
4 statewide saying "we need all the tools we can get" to
wfight the drug war.
The vote to eliminate the program fell short at 60-
41, while the whole budget bill was approved 58-43.
The transportation budget, which uses no money
from the state's main checkbook and is funded primarily
by the federal government and a tax on gasoline, was
approved 66-30.
The House defeated 82-15 an amendment setting
aside $250,000 for Northwest Airlines if the airline Mournin
failed to carry a certain number of passengers on flights l
0 to Traverse City and Marquette. Women lit candl

The Daily misidentified the Maria del Carmen Y Grupo Espana in
Friday's paper. It is a professional Spanish theater troupe. Only two people

Yesterday's story on the new makeup of the Michigan Student Assembly

elections. The party was named "Choice."
Lisa Simon is a graduate student and co-organizer of a demonstration
against the pesticide Dursban. Prof. John Witter did not want his lab sprayed
with pesticide because he thought his experiments with Gypsy moths might
be disturbed. It is not clear that the Dursban pesticide is toxic. This
information was reported incorrectly in yesterday's paper.

2 profs. suspended without pay

Approximately 100 Western Michi-
gan University students took over
the administration building yesterday
to protest the alleged assault of a
student, which resulted in the sus-
pensions of two WMU professors.
Students began blocking the en-
trances of the building at 7 a.m.,
preventing more than 200 employees
from entering, University spokesper-
son Joseph Gagie said.
The students, calling themselves
the Committee for Solidarity and
Accountability, were protesting an
April 3 incident in which two pro-
fessors allegedly wrestled with a stu-
dent they suspected was cheating dur-
ing a test. Approximately 250 stu-
dents witnessed the classroom alter-
cation, during which the students al-
legedly was bitten.
At first, students said they were
protesting delays in the administra-
tion's investigation and announce-
ment of disciplinary measures
against the professors.
But after administrators an-

nounced later in the morning a depi-
sion to suspend both professors
without pay, students remained bar-
ricaded in the building, saying they
weren't satisfied and demanding to
speak with university president Di-
ether Haenicke.
Students had called earlier for the;
termination of both professors.
Administrators met sporadically
throughout the day with students,:
but officials have not received any
list of demands and are not sure what
the students want, said Ruth
Stevens, director of news services.
Haenicke "has consistently mdi-'
cated his willingness to meet with
representatives of the students under
one condition: that the students'
make the administration building ac-
cessible to all students, faculty, staf
and the general public," Stevens read
from a prepared press release.
Students were not available for
comment because the university
rerouted telephone lines from the

gthe past
es Monday at Moscow's Georgian church to mark the first anniversary of an
troops on protesters calling for Georgian indepence last year. During the
ops killed 19 people and doused thousands with gas.

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Sol-
idarity leader Lech Walesa was
quoted yesterday as saying he will
run for president in the next election.
The report by the government
news agency PAP could not imme-
diately be confirmed with Walesa or
his spokesperson. Aides and col-
leagues of the Solidarity leader have
long been saying he is considering a
presidential bid.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, a close asso-
ciate of Walesa's and editor of the
Solidarity weekly newspaper, said
the leader's comments to PAP
should only be "understood as a gen-
eral declaration, not connected with
present events."
"I confirm," PAP quoted Walesa
as saying when asked if he would
run for president. "We have many
wise and valuable people in govern-
ment, holding various posts. How-
ever, one must speed up the pace of
reforms and destroy the old arrange-
