cide what we would do."
If the board decides to punish the
fraternity and sorority, the groups
will receive a verbal warning. If
problems persist, they will not be
allowed to schedule any events at
the Union until the matters have
been resolved by the board.
In other business, MUBR agreed
to return the issue of changing the
Michigan Union Grill (MUG) into
a non-smoking area to committee.
The results of a student poll were
inconclusive as to whether or not
students wanted the area to be
smoke-free.
Another student survey will be
conducted soon.

Shooter to get new
round against 'U'

by Purvi Shah
Daily Administration Reporter
Even after firing 19 rounds at
the Fleming Administration
Building last April, former Uni-
versity employee Roger Guiles
will get another shot to plead his
case against the University's deci-
sion to deny him medical benefits.
The Michigan Court of Appeals
ruled Tuesday that the state Court
of Claims used the wrong legal
standard to adjudicate Guiles' case
and must hear it again.
Four years ago, Guiles, a former
technical writer for the University
Institute of Science and Technol-
ogy, was diagnosed with Epstein-
Barr Syndrome, a chronic fatigue
ailment unmitigated by bedrest.
He claimed the illness pre-
vented him from working for sev-
eral years and applied for long-
term disability payments. After
the University denied his request,
Guiles charged it with wrongly re-

fusing him medical leave.
General Counsel for the Uni-
versity Elsa Cole said that she
thought the Circuit Court's deci-
sion would be the same even after
the case was reviewed.
"Basically the judge just erred
in choosing what legal standard to
apply," she said. "I think even us-
ing that new standard, we'll have
the same result."
While the appeals court decided
that Guiles' lawsuit should not
have been thrown out, it admitted
the case "appears quite weak."
Guiles fired 19 rounds from an
M-14 semi-automatic, damaging
windows on four floors of the
Fleming Building. He is serving a
delayed sentence after pleading
guilty to charges.
The former University em-
ployee did not hurt anyone during
the 2:30 a.m. firing spree, he later
confessed he had dreamt of assassi-
nating administrators for months.

Roger Guiles shot a hole through this window when he launched a
shooting spree against the Fleming Administration Building on April 19,
1991.

ACLU
Continued from page 1
ACLU attorneys said an impor-
tant aspect of the case involves a
Court of Appeals ruling which
states that there is a fundamental
right of privacy under the Michigan
Constitution - which includes the
decision of whether to terminate a
pregnancy. If that portion of the
holding is affirmed, Michigan
women will be protected from a
U.S. Supreme Court reversal or
modification of Roe vs. Wade.
Spring said if the ACLU loses
the case, a broader second public ref-
erendum which would apply to all
abortion will probably be intro-
duced.
"At this point, we are looking at
losing all abortion rights in the
state, so it would not deal specifi-
cally with abortion rights for
young or poor women," Spring said.

HEARINGS
Continued from page 1
probably trying to balance what's
best in terms of students but it
could be as simple as no one took the
time to write the text."
The SRC is concerned that stu-
dents will not have enough time to
submit letters expressing their-
opinions on deputization to the
MSA to be included in a package
given to the regents at their
February meeting.
"My biggest problem with it is
these letters that are supposed to be
sent in to us have to be sent in by
Monday," SRC Vice Chair Rob Van
Houweling said Tuesday. "If people
haven't seen the ad at least by
Wednesday, how are they ever going
to get a letter written to us?"
The SRC said they thought an
advertisement was due last week.
"We've requested longer hear-

ings and they've said the hearings
don't have to be long because people
can write letters," Van Houweling
said. "If the letters are so critical,
why have they not announced it
until it's almost too late to do
anything about it?"
The SRC expressed disappoint-
ment with the administration's ef-
forts so far.
"It seems to me that it is excep-
tionally ironic that they are going
to spend so many millions of
dollars on the police force but they
aren't willing to spend the
necessary amount on publicizing the
hearings," Van Houweling said.
The press release announced that
students can sign up to speak by
calling the Board of Regents office.
The hearings will be held on
Wednesday, Feb. 19 from 4-6 p.m.
and Thursday, Feb. 20 from 4-5 p.m.

UAC and BSU are still trying to
find sponsors to cover the $20,000 it
will cost for Lee's visit. The pro-
jected cost includes $15,000 for Lee
and $5,000 for his travel costs, ac-
commodations, the building, the
sound system and security.
Last night, the LSA Student
Government (LSA-SG) approved a
$5,000 grant for the event. They

sponsor.
"Lee is a very prominent film-
maker and leader in the Black com-
munity," said Brett White, LSA-SG
president. "Even though I don't
agree with his politics, I still sup-
port the funding. It's going to be a
big event for the students and that's
what we're here for."
At a meeting Tuesday night, Ilil-
lel also agreed to co-sponsor the
event. It will be the first time IHil-
lel and the BSU have worked to-

gether, Bernstein said.
"Hillel at Michigan, unlike Hil-
lel at some other schools, is a multi-
cultural thing. Its activities are not
just for Jewish students, but for the
whole community," said Eliot
Goldstein, a member of Hillel's
Governing Board. "This will be a
good opportunity for us to work
with other groups."
Event organizers are also trying
to bring John Singleton, director of
"Boyz N the Hood," to speak with
Lee, but Bernstein was unable to
confirm Singleton's visit..

HEALTH

lion on health services in 1990,
about one dollar in every eight.
Some 35 million people are now
without health insurance.
"My plan ensures that people
can find health care, choose health
care, afford health care and keep
health care," Bush said in a speech to
the Small Business Legislative
Council yesterday.
"Is his plan a step in the right di-
rection? Does it make it more af-
fordable, does it make it more acces-
sible? Yes, it does," said Sen. Bob
Packwood of Oregon, ranking
Republican on the Senate Finance

Committee, which oversees health
legislation.
Bush would provide health-care
vouchers of $1,250 for individuals,
$2,500 for couples and $3,750 for
families of three or more whose in-
comes are at or below the poverty
level.
That amount would be gradually
phased down as incomes rise - to
$125, $250 and $375 for people earn-
ing 150 percent of the poverty level.
People could use the vouchers to
help buy coverage from private in-
surance companies. They could also
use them to purchase new low-cost :
policies that each state would create
by striking deals with private
insurers.
