'U'

hosts international

deforestation

seminar

Nuts and Bolts by Judd Winick

by Elizabeth Marshall
Representatives from 21 coun-
tries are convening at the University
this week to discuss the problem of
global deforestation.
Participants at the Seventh An-
nual International Seminar on
Forestry Administration and Man-
agement - an intensive four-week
program - will examine a broad
range of forestry management issues
and conservation practices for both
public and private sectors.
The participants will be on cam-
pus and at the University's Biologi-
cal Station in Pellston until Sept.
27. After exploring different types of
forest management in Michigan,
they will travel throughout Idaho and
Oregon for further field visits and
workshops with federal, state, and
private land managers. The seminar
will conclude in Washington, D.C.
The goal of the conference is to
take home the information and
"sensitize the people" to make them
"aware of the environment, of in-
volvement, of the global conse-
quences," said Mahmood Khan, sec-
retary of forests in Islamabad, Pak-
istan. Khan praised the efforts of

more developed countries in provid-
ing aid to his country for environ-
mental education.
Various participants agreed forest
maintenance is of global importance,
but there is no international solu-
tion.
Kahn said a common dilemma
developing countries face is main-
taining the little tree cover that ex-
ists in the face of an increasing pop-
ulation. A goal of the participants is
to educate the people of their coun-
tries and stimulate them to use
sources of fuel other than wood,
Kahn said.
The seminar is co-hosted by
the University's School of Natural
Resources and the United States For-
est Service and is being held at the
Oxford Conference Center on Sept.
16-17, 24 and 26.
Seminar director John Wither-
spoon, a member of the U.S. Forest
Service and an adjunct lecturer in the

School of Natural Resources, saiP
the forest seminar is "a beneficial
partnership between the two organi-
zations."
"The University provides the
professional and educational aspects,
while the U.S. Forest Service pro-
vides the technical effort," he ex-
plained.
Tarcisio Pereira of Brazil, who is
attending the seminar for the fir
time, said he wanted to learn about
countries of which he was previ-
ously ignorant. He said he is look-
ing forward to an exchange of ideas
and experiences which will make the
seminar a success.
Participating countries include:
Argentina, Bangladesh, Bhutan,
Brazil, Cameroon, Honduras, Hong
Kong, India, Kenya, Laos, Madagas-
car, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistar
Philippines, Somalia, St. Lucia,
Suriname, Uganda, Venezuela, and
Zimbabwe.

by Elizabeth Marshall
During a special lunchtime ses-
sion open to students in the School
of Natural Resources yesterday,
Mark Rey of the National Forest
Products Association in Washing-
ton, D.C. spoke to a crowd of 50
about issues of concern to students
of natural resources. The speech fo-
cused on the current debate over the
spotted owl in the Pacific North-
west.
The discussion was part of the
Seventh Annual International Semi-
nar of Forest Administration and
Management which began Sunday.
Rey is one of several participants -
many of whom have come from
around the world - in the seminar
to discuss deforestation.
POLICY
Continued from page 1
LSA junior Maurice Morton,
president of the Kappa Alpha Psi fra-
ternity and member of the Black
Greek Association (BGA), said the
policy reflected most of the concerns
voiced by the BGA in their meetings
with Swain.
"I see (the picture identification
requirement) as an improvement that
should help to decrease the chance of
another big fight breaking out," he
said. "It's also a good idea for the
group to meet with security in ad-
vance of the event."
Morton was also concerned that
such restrictive admittance policies
could be detrimental to the commu-
nity.
"We should not blame the Ann
Arbor community for last Friday's
incident," he stressed. "We still need
to work at creating events for the
community, especially high-school
students."
"However," he added, "some
events should be restricted to the
older college crowd."
LSA junior and Michigan Stu-
VIGIL

the tearful crowd that because of the
new law she, as a minor, was afraid
for herself and her peers.
"I am afraid that this is just the
first step towards restricting more of
our rights. I am afraid for those
teenagers who can't tell their parents

Rey provided the participants
with an overview of the role of foig
est industry in development. He pre-
sented both sides of the spotted owl
dilemma and discussed the possibil-
ity of endangerment of the species.
Spotted owls have begun to dis-
appear due to the widespread cutting
of ancient forests in the Pacific
Northwest by loggers.
The latter part of the session
was directed toward the students who
attended. Rey gave several bits o)
advice to young environmentalists,
"It is of the utmost importance to
be able - at any point in time, con-
cerning any issue - to put yourself
in the position of your adversary,
and to convey that position as effec-
tively as he or she does," he said.
dent Assembly President Jennifer
Van Valey, however, said she had se'
rious problems with the new guide-
lines.
"There are so many problems
with this new policy," Van Valey
said. "How do they define a social
event? Why do they have such in-
flexible deadlines? It is clear that
these new rules will only be used by
the administration to squelch certain
causes."
"All these rules about gueso
passes remind me of my high school
dances," Van Valey joked.
Executive Director of University
Relations Walter Harrison said the
new policy will insure that another
incident like the Sept. 8 melewill
not occur.
"If we collectively know what a
group's event is all about, we can all
better prepare for security and othe0
arrangements," Harrison said.
He went on to stress the new pol-
icy's main focus "is to include inter-
ested people, not exclude them," but
the administration will definitely "be
more careful to have enough security
at events in the Union and in other
buildings on campus."
and must plead before a stranger in a
black robe," she said.
At the closing of the vigil,
Menin emphasized Planned Parent-
hood's dedication to helping young
women in the struggle for their
rights."We are collectively lighting
the sky...When we work together we
are powerful."
