Assembly
selects
tchairs for
next term
by Purvi Shah
Daily MSA Reporter
New committee chairs and vice-
chairs as well as commission chairs
were elected to serve for the next
semester during last night's
Michigan Student Assembly
meeting.
While three of the nominees ran
unopposed for chair positions, de-
bate centered around defining issues,
strategies, and directions for operat-
ing the Peace and Justice, Students'
tights, and Women's Issues
Commissions.
Rackham Rep. Amy Polk
claimed assembly members were
voting down party lines when
choosing the new chairs. She indi-
cated that votes tended to be in two
sets, 22-11 or 16-14, and that in the
Budget Priorities Committee elec-
tion the more qualified candidate, a
business student, had lost.
But LSA Rep. Priti Marwah dis-
.agreed, "I think the most qualified
,people were elected." Marwah said
that the voting demonstrated a
trend to choose people who are
'willing to work with and respect
the administration since the current
,'assembly had been successful work-
'ing in that manner.
Committee chairs and vice-chairs
-for next term are: Budget Priorities
-.Committee, LSA Rep. Sejal Mistry
and Engineering Rep. Brent House;
. Campus Governance, LSA Reps. Ken
* Bartlette and Priti Marwah;
Communications, LSA Reps. Steve
Stark and Melissa Saari; External
Relations, LSA Reps. David
-Englander and Joel Martinez; and
Rules and Elections, Engineering
'Rep. Brian Kight and LSA Rep.
Corey Hill._
Commission chairs for next
'term are: Academic Affairs, LSA
Rep. Jeff Muir; Health Issues, LSA
Rep. Scott Gast; Peace and Justice,
,En gineering junior John
Vandenberg; Students' Rights, Law
'Rep. Michael Warren; and Women's
Issues, LSA Rep. Heather Johnston.

ABC's Simpson
to speak twice
by Henry Goldblatt
Daily Administration Reporter {

It appears as though Carole
Simpson, anchor of ABC's "World
News Saturday" will make two
trips to the University next
semester.
The University announced Mon-
day that Simpson would be among
one of the featured speakers at this
year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day
celebration at the University.
Furthermore, Simpson is cur-
rently scheduled to address gradu-
ates at the LSA spring commence-
ment exercises.
Simpson - a 1962 University
alumnus - said she had not heard
any further information from the
LSA commencement committee re-
garding her appearance. She said she
dealt with different University
people in arranging the two events.
LSA Dean Edie Goldenberg
could not be reached for comment.
Simpson was originally sup-
posed to address last year's LSA
graduating class, but was asked to
wait until this year, after President
George Bush agreed to speak at a
University-wide commencement
ceremony.
Executive Director for Univer-
sity Relations Walter Harrison said
that the University has no plans of
sponsoring a unified ceremony this
year.

Simpson
"I don't know of any reason we
would change," he said.
Simpson, whose MLK Day Ap-
pearance is being sponsored by the
University's School of Business
Administration, said she hopes to
relate her address to current events.
"I will try to be as topical as possi-
ble."
Simpson said she will perhaps
speak on her experiences as a young
reporter covering Martin Luther
King in Chicago. She also hopes to
address the status of Black people in
America today.

by Lauren Dermer
Daily Staff Reporter
The number of organizations
conducting on-campus recruiting at
the University has declined signifi-
cantly, forcing students to utilize
other resources in their job
searches.
Bythe end of winter term, 140
organizations will have visited the
University for presentations and
interviewing. This marks a 30 per-
cent decrease from the number of
employers on campus last year.
"One recruiter just cancelled 22
visits nationwide," Nicole Harris,
a business school senior and peer
advisor at Career Planning and
Placement (CP&P), said. "A lot of
companies aren't even cancelling
visits, they're just not scheduling
them."
The organizations that tradi-
tionally come to the University are
those with large staffs because the
average recruiting costs are very
high, Simone Taylor, associate di-
rector of CP&P, said.

"The facts about the economy
that we read in the Wall Street
Journal and see on the news are re-
ality," she said. "It's not just that
the organizations are not getting
bigger, but they are getting smaller
by cutting back and laying off.".
Taylor said the decrease of em-
ployers visiting the University is
not as extreme as other colleges
and universities across the nation,
which have reported a 60 percent
drop this year.
"It's a credit to the quality of
Michigan students that organiza-
tions are still coming here, given
what we're hearing across the
country," she said.
"The biggest challenge for stu-
dents is getting past the notion
that it is a depressing market," she
added. "While it is true that there
are fewer opportunities, our stu-
dents remain highly competitive
for those opportunities."
Taylor said students must take a
more aggressive approach to get-

ting jobs because many organiza-
tions are not in the financial posi-
tion to recruit.
"The On-Campus Recruiting
Program is only one avenue to use
in a complete job search," she said,
adding that there are many other
resources available at CP&P, such
as weekly briefing books of newly
announced jobs.
Lynn Kantor, an LSA junior and
peer advisor at CP&P, said,
"Students are very stressed - they
have been here earlier this year be-
cause they hear that there are no
jobs."
But Taylor noted that there are
numerous programs and job fairs
that will be held at CP&P soon,
and students should not be discour-
aged.
"Different students have dif-
ferent priorities as far as conduct-
ing their job search," she said.
"Nobody should punish them-
selves for not starting in the fall,
but they should jump on the band-
wagon in the winter."
