impressed with the turnout.

The Michigan Student Assembly
Academic Affairs Commission held
its first official meeting amid intra-
commission squabbling Tuesday to
discuss the issue of a 24-hour
The commission plans to start a
petition drive next week to get stu-
dent support for the establishment
of a 24-hour study facility on cen-
tral campus. Commission members
will be collecting signatures in the
fishbowl, on the Diag, and from
Greek houses.
"This will be the first immedi-
ate thing that's symbolic to the ad-
ministration - that this has broad
student support," said LSA Rep. and
Commission Chair Jeff Muir.
The commission is also working
in conjunction with other major
campus student governments to ex-
amine how to fund the 24-hour
"We're not asking for a fully
operational library but we want a
secure, well-lit area that people can
go to like the first floor of the
UGLi," Muir said.

students at other Big Ten schools
who have operational 24-hour study
centers to discuss operational
Muir said he would like to see
expansion of existing facilities by
finals at the end of this semester and
full plans begin next year.
The commission also plans to set
up appointments with various ad-
ministrators to explain its goals
and expected timeline of events.
"Students will see immediately
that this is something the assembly
is taking seriously," Muir said.
"It's a non-partisan effort. There are
no dividing lines."
The commission also plans to in-
vestigate many departments' choice
to offer three-credit classes instead
of four-credit classes to upper-level
"We want to know the reasons
behind the change because it affects
students getting credit and it costs a
lot more over the long haul," Muir
said. "We need to have course offer-
ings that meet the needs of
Muir and Rackham Rep. Amy

Polk, commission vice chair and
former commission chair, have pub-
licly disagreed on major assembly
issues in the past. Muir specified
disagreements over the Ann Arbor
Tenants Union budget reform, but
Muir said the disagreements would
not affect the commission's work.
Muir wrote an article concerning
Polk in yesterday's Michigan Re-
view titled "Is Amy Polk as Dumb
as She Looks?", saying that "the
woman is missing a few screws."
Muir said the article was unre-
lated to issues affecting the
Acadmic Affairs Commission.
"Out of that adversarial rela-
tionship, she took some pretty nasty

Muir said. "If she dishes it out, she

Polk said that she was upset by
the article and that she did not know
how it was going to affect
commission work.
"I find a lot of things in Jeff to
respect, but the fact that he would
pull something so sophomoric and
unprofessional makes it hard for me
to find something to respect in
Jeff," she said.
Muir insisted that the article
would in no way affect his working
relationship with Polk on the

Alleged stabber to face trial-

by Lauren Dermer
Daily Crime Reporter
After a preliminary hearing yes-
terday, Perry Lee Shepard, the man
arrested for the Jan. 12 stabbing
outside of the Michigan Union, will
go to trial.
Shepard, a homeless man, was ar-
rested for stabbing another Ann
Arbor homeless man, Thomas
White, in the stomach. White and
three other witnesses were present
during yesterday's hearing.
Shepard was accused of assault
with the intent to murder, but the
case has been moved to the Washte-
naw County Circuit Court with a
lesser charge.
The offense has also been
lowered to assault with the intent
to do great bodily harm because of
evidence provided by prosecutors.
The Ann Arbor Police Depart-

of a connection between the stab-
bing and a slaying at Westgate mall
that also involved a homeless man.
However, Ann Arbor Detective
Nick Schubring said investigations
have not shown any apparent
Shepard, represented by Public
Defender Ruth Vernet, is being held
in Washtenaw County Jail until

Hall at 5 p.m., Jan. 31.
University alumnus Hayden was
specifically chosen to be a key
speaker at the symposium,
"Definitions Of Democracy: The
Democratic Ideal In Public Policy,"
as a result of his long history as a
political activist.
A founder of Student Demo-
cratic Society, which drafted its
constitution in Port Huron, Hayden
was also one of the Chicago 7 during
the '68 riots. He is the president of
the Center for Economic

Although Hayden was origi-
nally scheduled to deliver the open-
ing address, International director
for the Interns for Peace Bruce Co-
