Racist graffiti prompts
custodians' grievance

by Henry oldblatt
Daily Staff Reporter
Two East Quad custodians have
filed a complaint against their super-
visor for not investigating accusa-
tions that students had drawn
swastikas and written racist con-
ments on a dorm room door.
The comments, they said, in-
cluded the statements: "Niggers live
forever. It's the minority that fucks
up the majority."
The complaint is filed with the
American Federation of State,
County, and Municipal Employees
(AFSCME). The complaint goes to
the department manger. If it is not
resolved the complaint goes to a
grievance hearing with the Univer-
sity review committee.
The custodian is seeking a public
apology from management about the
way the situation was handled.
The custodians, who refused to be

identified, said they found swastikas
and the comments written on a
chalkboard of an East Quad dorm
room on Nov. 28.
The custodians, who are Black,
said they had found similar state-
ments on the same door a month ago
and had told the resident of the room
they would erase such remarks, if.
they found them again.
As they were erasing the com-
ments, two men, the room's resident
and a next door neighbor, confronted
them and said they were not respon-
sible for the comments and that they
should not be erasing anything from
the door.
The custodians reported the inci-
dents to their supervisor, Moni
Clampit, a service supervisor, saying
they didn't feel comfortable working
under those conditions and the matter
should be investigated. The com-

plaint has been brought to the atten-
tion of the building director Deba
Patnaik, but no other action has
been taken, the custodians said.
Clampit could not be reached for
Patnaik said the students denied
writing the comments, but took re-
sponsibility for the swastika, which
they quickly erased.
The residents in question refused
Punitive measures will not be
,taken against the students who drew
the swastikas, Patnaik said.
However, one custodian said, she
would not withdraw the complaint,
"We shouldn't have to work under
these circumstances and students
shouldn't have to walk by a room
(with racist graffiti)," the custodian

Two rallies planned against U.S.

by Jon Casden
Daily Staff Reporter
The first student protest at the
University against U.S. intervention
in the Middle East is scheduled to be
held at noon today on the Diag.
A nationwide protest will be held
tomorrow, which includes an Ann
Arbor rally beginning at 10 a.m. at
the Farmer's Market.
Today's rally will be sponsored
by a newly formed group: University
of Michigan Students against U.S.
Intervention in the Middle East.

Daniel Kohns, co-chair of the pub-
licity committee, is optimistic about
the demonstration.
"We've had two general meetings
(regarding U.S. intervention) and
each has gotten 200 people," Kohns
said. "There've already been large
protests in Berkeley and Boston. If
national sentiment is any indication
of how Ann Arbor is going to be,
then it will be successful."
Paula Church, the head of the
Michigan Student Assembly Peace

and Justice Committee, which facili-
tates the anti-intervention group,
also expressed hope concerning the
"Hopefully, this will get the
word out that the group exists, and
the momentum from the rally will
carry over to the next term," said the
LSA senior, who's emceeing today's

UAC speaker to discuss women in the media


by Purvi Shah
Daily Staff Reporter

Dr. Jean Kilbourne, the 1988 and
1989 National Association of Col-
lege Activities Lecturer of the Year,
will discuss "The Naked Truth: Ad-
vertising's Image of Women" in
Rackham Auditorium tomorrow.
Kilbourne is a noted expert on
the influence of sex roles and alcohol
in the media.
In her award-winning film enti-
tled "Killing Us Softly," Kilbourne
relates her views on the objectifica-
tion of women, the reinforcement of
male-dominant ideas, the use of rape-

tolerant ads, and the chauvinistic
portrayal of the mother in the Amer-
ican family.
Kilbourne's speech is part of an
attempt by Viewpoint Lectures, a
University Activities Center (UAC)
committee, to take a "proactive
stance" on campus, said UAC Presi-
dent Sarah Jackson.
Viewpoint Lectures desires
speakers who will discuss student is-
sues and increase the diversity of
opinions on campus, Jackson said.
"We decided that we wanted
Viewpoint Lectures to get more pro-
gressive and deal more with issues

affecting students," said Ben Bass,
Viewpoint Lectures co-chair.
"In the past UAC has had guests
who have been interesting but
haven't made much of a statement,"
he said. "We wanted to provide a
voice that would represent more than
the mainstream, status quo, typical
white male."
The demand for speakers who dis-
cuss issues concerning women ex-
ists, Jackson said. "Being a woman
myself, I don't see a whole lot of
things offered in this light on cam-
pus," Jackson said. "Dr. Kilbourne

is famous on campus and across the
U.S. and very up on women's is-
Providing stimulating speakers
for students is the least UAC can do,
Bass said. "Every student pays four
of five dollars a year to UAC. We
owe it to them to provide those kind
of guests and programs," he said.
Bass believes that the program
will have a definite impact on stu-
dents. "I personally know students
whose attitudes have changed just by
seeing her movie," Bass said. "You
can never look at it the same way.
She really opens your eyes."

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - In-

the final steps in the agency's fact-
finding mission.
Earlier Thursday, investigators in
a car videotaped the route the DC-9
took that put it on runway 3-C,
where it was clipped by the North-
west Boeing 727, bound for Mem-
phis, Tenn. The right wing of the
727 gored the right side of the DC-9
from just behind the cockpit,
knocking off one of the DC-9's aft
engines and igniting jet fuel.
As with its other probes of fatal
crashes, a final NSTB report could
take as long as a year.
