Closing the rally, DeLaurier
called for support of the housing
petition. In a final plea to Regent
Phil Power (D-Ann Arbor), who
abstained in voting on the housing
policy, she said,"You are clearly a
man of conscience ... We need you
to vote your conscience. Give at


least one vote to human rights at
this University!"
The rally then proceeded to the
ROTC building where activist
Richard Cleaver demanded "this
place to leave or change." Cleaver
stressed that Canada had announced
that it would not discriminate on
the basis of sexual orientation for
admittance into the military. This
should be an example to the United
States Government, he added.
The rally was followed by a
Celebration Dance held in the

Michigan students are exploring
the legendary Christopher Colum-
bus in a new way: they're discover-
ing how his actions set in motion
devastation and enslavement.
The Michigan Council for Social
Studies has adopted guidelines rec-
ommended by the National Council
for the Social Studies to rework
classroom programs.
"It's a perfect opportunity for
critical inquiry on the part of stu-
dents, and it's a good opportunity
for students to look at very contra-
dictory material from different per-
spectives," said Michael Yocum, so-
cial studies consultant for Oakland
Intermediate Schools.
David Barker, social studies chair
at Levey Middle School in
Southfield, says he'll use educa-
tional magazines to pick up where
textbooks leave off.
The old way of teaching about
Columbus features how the new
world was discovered and was ideal
for Europeans to expand their lan-
guage and culture. The new way ex-
amines all cultures involved and
their impact on each other.
"Textbooks traditionally
treated Columbus mythological-
ly," said Lee Kravitz, social studies
editorial director of Scholastic, an
educational publisher. "Our purpose
was not to denigrate Colum-bus,
but to explore who he really was."

None of Hill's supporters said
they advised her to quit work.
"In retrospect, I think I would
have advised her to leave her job,"
said New York attorney John Carr.
He said Hill had told him that
Thomas had "showed an unwanted
sexual interest in her."
More than six hours later came
an entirely different story, one de-
picting Thomas as a man completely
incapable of such action - and Hill
as anything but a meek victim.
"I know he did no such thing,"
said Nancy Elizabeth Fitch, a for-
mer assistant to Thomas at the
Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission. "I trust Judge Thomas
J.C. Alvarez, another former aide
to Thomas, called Hill opinionated,
arrogant and aloof, and said her
former boss was being "mugged in
broad daylight."
Said Phyllis Berry Myers, an-
other aide, "Never has anyone raised
allegations such as Anita has."

I've resigned myself to that," Polk
Both Uy and Morrison fought
for automatic student recognition,
and Green suggested that they pos-
sibly resigned because their mission
had been accomplished.
"A lot of people joined CC for
the goal of automatic student
recognition. After they got that,

it was last year. Obviously last
year's administration was screwed
up," Uy said.
MSA cannot be run to benefit
students since the fault is inherent
within the system, Uy argued. "It
serves a very small group of stu-
dents," he said. "We believe its un-
necessary at best and used as a tool
by special interests to further their
own special agenda at the cost of the
student body, at worst.
"It will always be the haven for
vocal special-interest groups. All I

they felt their duty was finished,"
Polk agreed. "I don't think that
maybe that lack of commitment to
MSA shows any lack of character."
Although Cosnowski ran with
CC, he does not feel that the current
assembly is superior to the assem-
bly led by Action President Jennifer
Van Valey last semester.
He argued that MSA should con-
centrate its effort on a few issues.
"Just don't pass a resolution say-
ing 'We condemn this' - that
doesn't do anything," Cosnowski
said. "A resolution is trivial com-
pared to actually talking to people.
It's just a piece of paper. The best
thing you can do is recycle it."
Uy disagreed, stating that the
new assembly is fairer. "It's a lot
more respectable. It's not the circus

ever hear is what does that six dol-
lars and odd cents go for? There's no
real benefit to the average student."
Cosnowski argued that the as-
sembly has not done anything con-
cerning recent student issues such as
the Union policy, the speech code,
and University police pulling guns
on campus because representatives
fear re-election problems and
administrative backlash.
"They've done absolutely noth-
ing because they're afraid to do any-
thing. They're afraid they're going
to look bad in the end," he said. "I
just see MSA as a lot of paranoid
people who are afraid to stand up
for what they believe in."
Green and Uy believe the new as-
sembly is a definite improvement
from the Van Valey administration.

"Traditionally, that also has
been a complaint of mine - that it
has gotten nothing done," Green
said. "Since we've taken over in
March, we've gotten a great deal
Green cites as evidence the low-
ering of MSA fees, introduction of
automatic student recognition, and s
an effort to become fiscally respon-
sible as improvements upon last
year's assembly.
"Since Bill has not been coming
to many meetings, (he doesn't
know) we have been accomplishing
more than in the past," Green said.
"Political infighting exists at
the current MSA. It existed in the
past. It will exist in the future.
Arguments and discussion are the
way that different political opin-
ions are expressed," Green added.
"As long as they're people with
different opinions, they're going to
be disagreements. I don't think
that's necessarily bad."
"The student group recognition
policy is a step in the right direc-
tion. The other thing I'd like to see
is cutting the funding way down to
size," Uy said. "Student Legal
Services shouldn't be under the
office and biases of MSA. Yes, we
need a representative student voice,
but you do not need thousands of
dollars in the budget."
Cosnowski also agreed that
funding to MSA should be cut, stat-
ing that students should not have to
provide funds to keep MSA running.
"They should demand that the stu-
dent fee is removed - the body
doesn't deserve our money," he
added. "The whole group is just a
bunch of backstabbers."
to our students. It's a terribly im-
portant part of the educational op-
portunity at this University,"
Clarkson said.
The public hearings will be held
tonight at 7 p.m. in Room 1209 of
the Michigan Union, and tomorrow
at 1 p.m. in the Kuenzle Room, also
in the Union.

"I think financial control does
break into editorial control in some
respects. The two are intertwined; I
don't think they can be separated,"
said MichiganEnsian Editor In
Chief Stephanie Savitz. Because the
board controls the publication's
budget, Savitz said that editorial de-
cisions, such as the quality of mate-
rials used to make the book, can be
"But it is more important that
students be able to learn as much as
possible while they're at the Daily

Gottesman, the Daily's editor in
chief. "The current system doesn't
promote that philosophy."
Last year, editors and business
managers of the Daily submitted a
proposal to the president to change
the composition and power of the
board, Gottesman said. In their first
proposal, the students were wary of
asking for too much too soon, he
added, but they were surprised by
the president's response.
"The president's office was a lot
more willing than we thought,"
Gottesman said. "Now anything is

Gottesman said. "I want The

dom of publications and allowing
