There will be a teach-in held at
the Union today at noon to discuss
issues involving "any organization,
student or otherwise, that deals with
the 'No Guns, No Cops, No Code,
Campus Democracy' movement,"
said Paul Friedman, minute-taker and .
volunteer for the committee to orga-
nize the teach-in.
"If it is a students' rights cam-
paign and if democracy is our goal-
it's damned hard to do it. We want to
do it right and with the most sincer-
ity," Friedman added.
Students voted to have a teach-in
at Friday's rally in front of the
Michigan Union. "The students want
to see what's actually happening on
campus," Friedman said.
"We were working with the Stu-
dents for a Safer Campus, but their
demands were just made up right be-
fore the take-in (at the Fleming Ad-
ministration Building), and they
weren't constructed well," Friedman

The teach-in will focus on issues
which tie in to the campus democ-
racy movement. "This is not a
closed committee; we're trying to
coalesce all concerns on campus. If
we start silencing groups, we'll be
as bad as the University," Friedman
Many of the issues will be dis-
cussed by the particular groups on
campus who are specifically
concerned with them.
"We're trying to stay (away)
from the average white student talk-
ing about racism on campus,"
Friedman said. Some items which
could be on the agenda are racism,
sexism, and a history of student ac-
tivism at the University.
The teach-in will last as long as
students' interest persists.
"We're planning on something
that will probably last more than
five hours. It could end at two or at
12 the next day if people are really
interested," Friedman said.
"I heard that we're supposed to

go to the teach-in instead of classes.
I think I'm going to further my
horizons and go because there is a
lot that I don't know," said Carrie
Rosol, an LSA sophomore. "It's a
major issue because people are call-
ing from home and saying, 'what's
going on? and I don't know.' "
'if it is a students'
rights campaign and if
democracy is our goal
- it's damned hard to
do it.'

LSA sophomore Brian Neal
added, "I think that it would-have
been more beneficial if they had had
it over the weekend. It will be nore
controversial if they have it when
people have to skip classes, but they
probably would have more atten-
dance if they had held it when people
didn't have classes."

releases events calendar

,-by Purvi Shah
* Daily Staff Reporter
This time the women are setting
the dates.
The Michigan Student Assembly
Women's Issues Commission (WIC)
released a calendar of events last
week highlighting activities of inter-
est to women.
The calendar includes sympo-
siums, speeches, and activities that
apply to women in November and
"We took a real broad-based view
of what is a women's issue," said
Jennifer Dykema, chair of the WIC.
The goal of the calendar is to in-
crease awareness and participation in
women's events on campus, said
Nira Dwarikesh, the co-vice chair of
the WIC and originator of the calen-
"We really wanted a network with
" all the women's groups on campus,"

Dwarikesh said. "It was hard to
channel the dates, so we made MSA
Women's Issue Commission a base
and our responsibility to know what
was going on with women's issues
all over campus. As far as we know
it's one of the first of its kind on
Student groups were contacted
and information from flyers was
consolidated to form the calendar. It
has been distributed to the Women's
Studies Department, women's stud-
ies classes, the Sexual Assault
Awareness and Prevention Center,
and groups recognized by MSA.
University Graduate Carol
Guisinger commented that it was dif-
ficult to acquire the calendar without
currently being a student. "I would
really bombard the Women's Studies
Department. People who take those
classes would really be interested."
There has been positive feedback

to the calendar. "Already, I see some
interest in people to go to the
events," Dwarikesh said.
Cecilia Ober, member of the
Feminist Women's Union, said, "I
think it's a good to put all of the
events and activities surrounding
women's issues on campus on one
calendar so that people interested in
women's issues will have access to
The attendance in smaller events
will be increased due to the calendar,
Ober added. "I don't think women's
events were poorly organized in the
past. At the same time there are
smaller (women's) events with less
publicity that women and men
would be interested in."
Dykema added that the calendar
will be a continuing project. "This
was a very rough copy of the calen-
dars in the future."

APO celebrates 5


by Meera Gummaraju
Members and alumni of the
: University's Alpha Phi Omega
(APO) service fraternity celebrated,
50 years of their organization this
A host of activities highlighted
the weekend which began Friday
with a mixer for former and current
APO was founded in 1925 at

Lafayette College in Easton,
Pennsylvania. A student at the col-
lege, Horton Reed, started the orga-
nization with members of Sigma
Epsilon and a few others with the
goal of getting students involved in
service organizations.
APO historian Crystal Gilmore
said the organization was founded "to
help young men get the right start in
life by holding up before them a

Syears o
'standard of manhood' that will
withstand the test of time."
J Members must serve their com-
munity, campus, nation, and their
chapter members.
The first group of students in the
University's chapter of Alpha Phi
Omega was initiated into the frater-
nity by the Beta Beta chapter of
APO from Michigan State
University on Nov. 17,1940. Women

were first allowed to join the frater-
nity in 1976.
Originally, the University's chap-
ter had 34 members. It has grown
considerably and now has more than
200 students - actives and pledges
- on its roll sheet.
Saturday, Gamma Pi had a show-
ing of memorabilia in the Kunzel
Room in the Union from 9 a.m.-6
p.m. In the afternoon, tours of the

campus were given and APO helped
local Boy Scouts pack canned goods
for shipping as a service project.
In the evening there was a ban-
quet for APO members from the
University, regional members of the
fraternity (these include students
from chapters in Indiana and
Illinois), and APO alumni. The
keynote speaker at the banquet was
APO's national vice president.

William Kelly was unanimously
approved as the University's -0ext
Vice President for Research at
Thursday's Board of Regents rmeet-
Kelly, who was nominated: for
the position in October:. by
University President Jaines
Duderstadt and Provost and Vice
President for Academic Affairs
Gilbert Whitaker, has served as the
interim vice president for research
since July 1989.
Kelly served as an associate vice
president for research from January
1989 to July 1989.
The University underwent ail in-
ternal search for a vice provost for
research in December 1989, 'but
when a candidate was not foundr the
search committee gave the position
vice presidential status - a status it
had until last year when Duderstadt
announced a reorganization of the
Even with the vice presideitial
status, the committee was still un-
able to find a candidate.
Kelly had said repeatedly that he
did not want the position, but even-
tually acquiesced. He has mixed feel-
ings about his new role.
"I'm truly honored that :the
Regents would entrust me withthis
responsibility. However, there 'is a
lot of rough sledding right now in
the research department and a lot of
changes need to be made," he said.
"On the other hand, I feet-challenged
to do the best job I can for the next
three years," he said of the three-year
Despite his mixed feelings,
members of his staff are enthused
about his confirmation.
"I'm very pleased that it is final
now, and we can move ahead. It is
really his show," said Judy Novck,
research policy advisor. "It's hard
when you are an interim to try to
implant your vision. He has they en-
dorsement and support from the peo-
ple he needs. He's finally got th, ti-
tle without the interim on it."
Marvin Parnes, assistant t& the
vice president for research, said I'm
personally delighted. I think it is an
excellent appointment for the
University. We can all look forward
to his continued leadership in re-
search. As interim he has taken a
great deal of responsibility, now
there will be some changes as a re-
sult of his confirmation."

The first comparative study of
new ethnic businesses in the United
States will be conducted by a
University researcher and her col-
league beginning this summer.
Sociology and American Culture
Prof. Silvia Pedraza and Roger
Waldinger, of the City College of
New York, will use a $92,000
National Science Foundation (NSF)
grant to conduct a three-year compar-
ative study of newly opened Latin
American and Asian businesses in
"It is a very rich social labora-
tory," Pedraza said. "Chicago is the
only city where all three major
Hispanic groups, Mexican, Cubans,
and Puerto Ricans, can be found side
by side."
Pedraza and Waldinger will take a
stratified ethnic sample of 850 small

businesses opened in 1990 in
Chicago and conduct intergroup
comparisons among Mexican,
Puerto Rican, Cuban, Chinese,
Filipino, Korean, and native Black
and white groups.
The study will attempt to deter-
mine "if there is anything ethnic
about the business that makes it dif-
ferent from other businesses, and if
there is, does it affect long term
profitability," Waldinger said.
The study will be the first to
compare success rates of new ethnic
businesses. Other studies have been
conducted only on single groups,
Waldinger added.
The team will test its theory that
the success of an ethnic business de-
pends upon the circumstances for the
migration and the characteristics of
the immigrant. Pedraza and
Waldinger have classified the immi-
grant into two categories: replace-

the U.S.
ment laborers and replacement' en-
Replacement laborers arrive as
low-skilled, low-paid, temporary la-
bor, according to their theory. They
tend to view their immigration as
temporary and often plan to return
to their homeland every few years.
Gradually this group takes over es-
tablished businesses as the owners
retire or move on.
The researchers suspect that
Mexican, Puerto Rican, and Filipino
groups are vastly underrepresented in
the Chicago work force because they
are often replacement laborers.
The group Pedraza and Waldinger
define as replacement entrepreneurs
have the highest business success
rate. Koreans and Cubans are the
most common type of small busi-
nesses owner in Chicago. -
