FEES

due fee.
Ann Arbor public school
board candidate Vickie Wilson,
$450. Wilson could not be reached
for comment.
The defunct political group
Citizens for Good Government,
$300. Dora Fuller, who served as its
treasurer, said of the late filing: "It
was a pure mistake. It was uninten-
tional. We never once got a bill
from (the county)."
Former County Commis-
sioner Margaret Kuebler, $300.
Kuebler could not be reached for
comment.
Ann Arbor Republican
Women's Club Committee, $170.
Former committee treasurer
Virginia Walker said she never re-
ceived any information about the
overdue fee.
Former County Commis-
sioner Catherine McClary, $70.
McClary could not be reached for
comment.
m County Commissioner candi-
date David Van Havermaat, $20.
Van Havermaat could not be reached
for comment.
Michigan law says fees that re-
main unpaid for more than 60 days
should be collected by the county
treasurer "in the same manner as
other county debts are collected."
Byrne said he has not transferred
any of these files to the county trea-

surer because the treasurer cannot
enforce the fines.
"I haven't forwarded any more
(files), because the last ones I for-
warded, nothing happened," he said.
County Treasurer Mike Stimson
said late fees do not qualify as a spe-
cial assessment, and the county
therefore cannot enforce them
through property tax liens.
And Stimson said he did not
forward any previous cases to the
county's prosecuting attorney be-
cause of its workload..
"The reality is they're far ... bus-
ier dealing with rapes and armed
robberies and murders, that they
don't have the time," he said.
"Obviously it's a matter of prior-
ity. So enforcement is difficult at
best."
The county prosecuting attor-
ney's office, which has 21 assistant
prosecutors in addition to
Prosecuting Attorney William
Delhey, reviewed 9,259 criminal
counts in 1990 - about 36 per day.
Despite the caseload, Delhey said
the office would investigate late
fees if it received notice of them.
"If they were turned over here,
we'd check into them," he said, but
added that they might not be a "high
priority."
"We'd look into it and decide
what to do, whether it needs further
investigation or prosecution as
criminal or prosecution as civil.
Again, it depends what's pre-
sented," he said.

Rebel soldiers arrest
Haitian president in
ii*tary coup d etat

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti
(AP) - President Jean-Bertrand
Aristide was arrested yesterday af-
ternoon by rebel soldiers at the
National Palace, the foreign minis-
ter said. The daylong uprising has
claimed at least 26 lives.
"The president and his staff have
been arrested and taken to the army
headquarters," said the foreign min-
ister, Jean-Robert Sabalat. He told
The Associated Press that the gov-
ernment was negotiating "to at
least save the president's life."
Sabalat said a loyal captain was
killed when the rebels took over the
National Palace about 5:30 p.m.
EDT.
Rebel soldiers opened fire on
Aristide's home early yesterday and
several hours later attacked a mili-
tary convoy that was taking him and
the French ambassador to the
National Palace. Neither Aristide
nor the ambassador, Jean-Rafael
Dufour, was injured, according to
government sources.
Among those killed during the
unrest was Sylvio Claude, an. evan-

gelical preacher and two-time presi.
dential candidate.
By nightfall, a presidential ad-
viser, overheard on a radio frequency
used by the military, government
and embassies, spoke of loyalist
soldiers deserting and hostile units
moving onto the grounds of the
National Palace.
A government minister, speaking
on condition of anonymity, said,
"We're in serious trouble."
Hours after word surfaced in
Miami's Little Haiti section of the
capture of Aristide, protests broke
out on city streets.
Demonstrators threw an
American flag, furniture, tires and
other debris into burning mounds in
the street. Gasoline was poured on a
patrol car and it was set ablaze, said
Miami police spokesperson David
Banks.
Aristide, a hugely popular 38-
year-old Roman Catholic priest,
was at home with aides and a body-
guard at the time of the early morn-
ing attack, the government said.

that business as usual - the pre-
scription of the '80s - cannot work
for our future," Kerrey said.
In a speech punctuated by ap-
plause and wild cheers from a crowd
of nearly 3,000, Kerrey offered few
specifics on what he would do if
elected. But he said "1992 offers us
a chance to break from a decade in
which our leaders invited a season of
cynicism."
His priorities include lowering
the national debt to reduce the bur-
den on future generations, improv-
ing education, reforming the health

care system, fighting barriers to
U.S. trade with other nations and
promoting human rights around the
world.
The first-term senator is the
fourth candidate to enter the
Democratic field. He joins former
Massachusetts Sen. Paul Tsongas,
Virginia Gov. L. Douglas Wilder
and Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin.
Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton is ex-
pected to join Thursday.
Kerrey kicks off his campaign
with a 12-day swing that includes
stops in Colorado, Iowa, South
Dakota and Illinois in the next four
days and then a week in New
Hampshire.

cization of the recognition process.
"I don't think the politics is impor-
tant to the actual recognition, but
the space allocation shall always be
a problem politically," he said.
"There's only so much space to go
around, and people have to make
their decision somehow.
"I think that's always been po-
litical. I don't think that will stop.

The only thing that concerns me is
that it is behind closed doors."
Former MSA President Jennifer
Van Valey said the assembly should
keep the clauses so that people who
felt discriminated against would
have a recourse.
"I don't think the right thing to
do is to hide your head in the sand
and eliminate the discrimination
clauses," she said. "I think they're
really shunning their responsibil-
ity."

past.
The budget has also forced the
library to shuffle money in order to
keep the rate of new acquisitions
steady, Riggs said. For example, the
personnel budget has been reduced,
leaving some positions unfilled.
Riggs said if the library has to
give up 2 percent of its budget, or
about $425,000, University students
would feel the effect. Vacant posi-
tions would remain unfilled, slow-
ing down the processing of books.
Fewer books would be purchased
and students would be working in
locations usually staffed by profes-
sional librarians, affecting service
to students.
Riggs said reduction inalibrary
hours is also a possibility.
Funding problems are also af-
fecting service at libraries on other
state-school campuses.
The library system at Michigan
State is facing shortfalls in its new-
material acquisition budget, said
Cliff Haka, assistant director for
administrative services at MSU.

"We will cancel some journal
subscriptions and we will buy
fewer books," he said. "When it hits
a researcher in that particular area, it
can be devastating, particularly to a
Ph.D. candidate."
Haka said MSU is expecting up
to a 3 percent funding callback from
the state. Haka said the library sys-
tem would have to take money away
from personnel and equipment bud-
gets and cut hours.
"There is a chance we would
close one of our branch libraries,"
he said.
Peter Spyers-Duran, dean of li-
braries at Wayne State University,
said his department has already
submitted a plan to handle a 2 to 3
percent budget shortfall. Some of
the actions included in the plan are
reducing equipment purchases and
delaying new hires. 1
But Spyers-Duran said reducing
library hours- is an ineffective
method of lowering costs.
"I'm wondering if that saves
enough money," he said. "There are.
perhaps other measures that are
more meaningful in saving dollars
that make a less dramatic public
statement."

Department money and allow stu-
dents more aid."
Rosenthal was not surprised that
the Consumer Bankers Association
was opposed to the program.
"Let's remember banks were
pushing for the program when they
were involved," he said. "Of course
they are opposed to it now that they
are no longer direct beneficiaries of
student loans."
Tom Butts, director of the Uni-
versity's Washington', D.C. office,
said the direct student-loan program
will save money.
"A report released by the Gen-
eral Accounting Office showed how
the direct loan program could sim-
plify the loan process and reduce
costs by eliminating several finan-

cial intermediaries,"Butts said.
Stacey Leyton, vice-president of
the U.S. Student Association, a stu-
dent lobbying group, said the direct
student-loan program will simplify,
the loan process.

have a severe
adverse impact on ...
students and schools'

"It would make it easier for stu-,
dents to apply for aid and to receive
it," she said. "It would also limit
the origination fee put on all stu-
dent aid applications."
