into improving facilities and
building new facilities if they keep
further tuition increases at six
percent or less," Wolf said.
"Since the governor has been in
office, funding for higher education
has increased 82 percent," she added.
However, compared to other states,
Michigan's support for higher educa-
tion ranks 43rd nationwide.
Engler, if elected, has proposed
-an increase in funding and a tighten-
ng of inefficiencies in Michigan's
higher education institutions.
"Engler would help make the uni-
versities more efficient by increasing

funding and accessibility for any stu-
dent who wants to attend an institute
of higher education... Hewould
maintain the autonomy of the
university to provide courses that,
students want," Truscott said.
Truscott added that Engler would
allocate 15 percent of the general
revenue fund towards education.
"As Senate Majority leader,
Engler added over $115 million to
higher education above Governor
Blanchard's recommendation,"
Truscott said.
Both candidates claim activism
on environmental legislation,
including support for the polluter-
pay legislation which became law

less than one month ago.
The Governor has recently signed
legislation protecting the Great
Lakes. "The Governor was a strong
advocate on Great Lakes protection.
He spearheaded the Great Lakes
Toxic control agreement." Wolf
"Engler has a strong environmen-
tal record that he is proud of. He has
been active in the Senate in writing
environmental legislation that is in
place today," Truscott said
Both campaigns see their candi-
date's chances as excellent, but point
to turnout as being the key factor in
deciding the vote.

LSA Dean addresses faculty

by Julie Foster
Daily Staff Reporter

LSA faculty have already started
working on some solutions proposed
in the Report on the Undergraduate
Experience, LSA Dean Edie
Goldenberg said yesterday at a fac-
ulty meeting.
Follow-up committees are dis-
cussing specific issues raised in the
report which was compiled by the
LSA Planning Committee,
Goldenberg said.
"The report is generating discus-
sion, and that is it's primary pur-
pose," Goldenberg said.
The college has begun activities
suggested in the report to improve
undergraduate education:
LSA is planning its own
fundraisng drive.
Individual departments are
considering ways to encourage con-
tact between students and faculty.


The first issue of a new fac-
ulty newsletter on undergraduate edu-
cation was distributed to the staff.
"The first issue devoted a lot of
space to the diversity requirement,"
Goldenberg said.
Mary Ann Swain, interim vice
president for Student Services,
formed the University Council of
Undergraduate Affairs "to bring to-
gether all of the colleges who have
undergraduates enrolled to discuss the
issue," she said.
Some faculty will be review-
ing LSA literature sent to students.
Goldenberg said they will "review
them to see if there were important
things omitted and whether we can
do a better job being clear and more
Goldenberg also spoke to the fac-
ulty about criticisms the report re-
ceived. Some of the criticism came
from "people who thought that the

report represented a concrete plan."
The "follow-on"' committees were
formed to come up with direct pro-
posals, she said.
'There is a strong
suggestion that U of
M not try to be what it
is not- a small
teaching institution'
-Edie Goldenberg
LSA Dean
Others felt some of the goal.o
were unrealistic. "There is a strong
suggestion that U of M not try to be
what it is not- a small teaching in-
stitution," Goldenberg said.
Despite the concerns, "there is
great enthusiasm out there for re-fo-
cusing our energy on the undergradu-
ates," Goldenberg said.

-of the life of a mother. He has tried
to protect family planning," Kwal-
wasser said.
"Levin wants some adult in-
rvolvement. He was opposed to direct
parental consent because it was too
narrow and required parental in-
volvement not adult," Kwalwasser
said. "He has concern with minors
who do not have the assistance from
some adult."
"Schuette considers himself pro-
life. He supports restrictions on
abortion including parental consent,"
said Kraft. "He supports abortion in
the cases of rape incest and in endan-
gering the life of the mother."
In terms of higher education,
both candidates agree that increased
funding is necessary, but they dis-
agree on how to best go about
achieving this goal.
The Levin campaign sees

Schuette's record on higher education
as weak. "Congressman Schuette in
1985 voted to cut $5 billion re-au-
thorized for higher education...
Schuette in 1986 cut education ap-
propriations which would cut $40
million in guaranteed student
loans.., thenSenator has no record of
credit on higher education funding,"
Kwalwasser said.
In reference to this, Kraft said
Schuette voted for a three percent in-
crease for education funding but
voted against a 10 percent increase.
"Carl (Levin) himself voted against a
higher amount," he added.
Schuette supported tax legislation
allowing deduction in interest paid
on Pell Grant assets, Kraft added.
Pell Grants are federal loans given as
financial aid to university students.
Both candidates say they are seri-
ous about cleaning up the environ-
Levin points to the recent pas-
sage of the Great Lakes Protection

Act, which he says, highlights his-
commitment to the environment.
The law, which Levin originally
sponsored, acts to identify and clean.
up pollution in the Great Lakes and
provide a specific time table to clean
up 42 toxic hot-spots in the state.
The Schuette campaign said he_
supported the legislation in the
Schuette sees as one of his priori-
ties to push legislation for Michi-
gan. "Michigan itself does not get
representation. Michigan ranks dead-
last in getting funds back to the
state. Bill works well with and
knows President Bush. Bill can get
more done for Michigan," Kraft said.
The Levin campaign thinks an
agenda needs to be established before
acting. "Our priority is to get our
priorities straight. We have been un-
derfunding what we need to make the
country strong... we have under-
funded education, we need to clean
the environment; we need to win the
war on drugs..." Kwalwasser said.

Cosnowski said the absence of a
committee may be a violation of
MSA's rules, and that those deter-
mining th. allocations did not ade-
quately represent the view of MSA.
"(Dudley) should have made the
attempt to ask other assembly mem-
bers to join the committee,"
Cosnowski said.
At last week's assembly meeting,
Dudley announced he would estab-
lish a Space Allocations Committee
for the purpose of developing guide-
lines on the use of office space.
Many groups, including the Latin
American Solidarity Committee
(LASC), Gay Liberation, Women
Against Nuclear Defense (WAND),
and the Undergraduate English
Association were not allocated space
because a room investigation by
Dudley revealed fire hazards or poor

might say, "Wubba, wubba, wubba,
the Club MTV Dance Party will be
a throwdown time at the Union Ball-
room, child."
As part of the college tour, six of
the Club MTV dancers will be host-
ing a dance party from 8-10 p.m.
tonight. The highlight of the
evening will be a dance competition
in search of the University's funkiest
female and male dancer. The winners
will be flown to New York City to
appear on Club MTV taped live at
the Palladium night club.
upkeep of their offices.
"If I took the fire marshal up
there, he'd shut the place down,"
Dudley said.
Van Valey said groups whose
office requests were denied because
they posed a fire hazard should be
allocated space because the assem-
bly had not made it clear to organi-
zations what was required for up-
"We can't take people's offices
away because we're not explicit
about rules," she said.
However, Dudley cited a memo
dated Oct. 16, 1989 from MSA to
student groups, stating that the
assembly reserved the right to check
offices to ensure they were being
"used appropriately."
"If not, cancellation of office
space will occur," the memo states.
It does not address what MSA con-
siders appropriate use.

Michigan was selected as one of
ten universities Club MTV will
visit. Last July, Club MTV selected
LSA senior and former UAC mem-
ber Kevin Sandler to be their college
representative for organizing the en-
tire event.
"If you love watching Club MTV
and you love to dance, this is the
place to go. It's a big dance party,"
Sandler said.
Mark Romano, MTV coordinator
of special markets, is enthusiastic
about bringing his "professional"
program to the campus.
"It's on the edge as far as club
music goes. Students are excited be-
cause MTV's part of their genera-
tion. They'll enjoy a non-alcoholic
party that's a sober good time,"
Romano said.
LSA sophomore and UAC Spe-
cial Promotions Chair Wendy

Shanker said the evening of dancing
with Club MTV will give students a
break from studying.
"This is U of M's chance for a
timely spotlight and this ain't no bar,
mitzvah. It's a chance to get down,
get funky and have a blast! I know
there's a Stats exam on Wednesday.
Just blow it off because the beat
goes on!" Shanker said.
LSA junior Laurie Jacobson is
not attending the Club MTV party
with the intent of winning, however
she is looking forward to dancing
with other good dancers.
"I want to see people do cool !
moves. And it's a great stress re-
liever before my test," she said.
Students who forego tomorrow
night's festivities will be able to
catch a glimpse of the MTV dancers
today on the Diag at noon.

Michigamua seeks
MSA recognition


by Julie Foster
Daily Staff Reporter
Members of the Minority Affairs,
Commission (MAC) may oppose
recognition of Michigamua - an
all-male honor society - at the
Michigan Student Assembly meet-
ing tonight.
Last year, MAC and Michigamua
resolved a long-standing dispute con-
cerning the group's controversial Na-
tive American initiation rites by
agreeing that Michigamua remove
all references to the culture in its

ceremonies and activities.
Michigamua President Paul Mur-
phy said the group has abandoned the
rituals and will base new traditions
on Michigan.
However, Harris said that a pro-
vision in the original agreement re-
quired both groups to meet again to
confirm the discontinuance of the
Members of MAC went to a
Michigamua meeting last night to
remind the organization that another
meeting is still required.
