Checkoway said Delta Zeta's sit-
uation differed from Sigma Kappa's.
"The n'eighborhood was much
more vocal about the harmful ef-
fects on the neighborhood," he said.
OxBridge Neighborhood Associ-

that they were willing to discuss
their concerns with Delta Zeta.
Bookstein said, "There is some-
thing wrong with zoning to allow
this degree of mutual exacerbation
Commission member David Copi
said the commission ruled differ-
ently in the Sigma Kappa case be-
cause "there are some more reason-
able places for fraternities and
sororities to locate."
"My hope is that the Planning
Commission can update the ordi-
nances to make it possible for these
parties to come to easier agreement
in these things," Copi continued.
The issue of access to the prop-
erty remains in question. Delta Zeta
will present a revised plan to the
commission on March 10.

Ways and Means Committee
rejects Bush's economic plan
by Karen Pier
Daily Graduate Schools Reporter
Rackham Student Government
(RSG) decided to support the
groups fighting against campus
deputization by allocating
Michigan Terminal System funds if
needed and use of RSG's telephones
at their meeting last night at
Some members of RSG said they
will attend the redeputization
public hearings next week.
RSG President Mark Buchan said
he doubted the RSG members' opin-
ions would have much influence on
the outcome of the hearings.
RSG has always been anti-depu-
tization, Buchan said. "The hearings
are a waste of time."
"I think the police force set up
now, because of the way it's set up
and the personnel, will be a tool of
oppression," Buchan said.
Former RSG president Tracy Ore
also disagreed with the University's
"Deputization by University re-
gents or the county sheriff is not
necessary to the campus. We already
had support from Ann Arbor police
before," Ore said.
RSG member Corey Dolgon said
the University will deter protests
and create more autonomy for the
campus with the use of deputized
"The University wants to create
a public image of public safety,"
Dolgon said. But he added that the
University is also concerned with
Dolgon was also worried about
the quality of the police. "The
University police continually fuck
up," Dolgon said
Ore said the police are filing
more charges than actual number of
crimes being committed.
"It's like someone stealing a
pack of gum and being charged with
grand larceny," she said.
Ore is also concerned that the-po-
lice are answerable to state laws
rather than Ann Arbor laws. That
means that people can be arrested
for charges such as sodomy, she said.
"This is dangerous," Ore said.
Buchan said he is concerned tlat
groups such as Blacks, political ac-
tivists, homosexual men, bisexials
and lesbian women might be
targeted by the deputized police.
Another concern Buchan ex-
pressed was that some officers had
not been going to the sensitivity
training workshops which w6jild
teach them to be more responsive to
minorities on campus.
Ore agreed this was a problm
because the police were not being
faced with their own racism and ho-
Buchan said the expense of, tie
University having their own police
force is "ridiculous."
The reason the regents decide. t
deputize officers was because tiex
felt it was more efficient and less
costly, Ore said.
"Deputization is unnecessary,
dangerous and will ultimately only
intensify everything that the
administration wants to deter with
its presence," Dolgon said.
Some of the groups forming the
coalition against deputization - are
Students Halting Institutionalized
Terrorism (S.H.I.T.) and Students of
Color of Rackham (SCOR).
In addition to discussieig
deputization, RSG allocated fuids
to groups, including a Socioligy

Masculinity," for a video dealitig

minority opinions, on the issue Of
WASHINGTON (AP) - A bicker-
ing House Ways and Means
Committee rejected President Bush's
tax plan to revive the economy
yesterday and Democrats set to work
on a substitute promising tax relief
for the middle class.
Seven key elements from the
comprehensive plan Bush outlined in
his State of the Union message last
month were defeated on a 23-13
party-line vote. Democrats then went
behind closed doors to begin writing
a plan that they expect to push
through the House welltbefore
Bush's March 20 deadline for action.
The Democratic version is likely
to contain a temporary credit for
wage-earners, higher taxes on the
well-to-do and some incentives for
"America is watching us, won-
dering whether we can act wisely
and expeditiously to revive the
economy," Chair Dan Rostenkowski
(D-Ill.) told colleagues as the com-
mittee's brief open meeting began.
"This process is clearly designed
to hurt the president politically and I
won't stand for it," said Rep. Bill
Archer of Texas, senior Republican
on the committee.
"You've changed your budget,"
Rep. Beryl Anthony (D-Ark.) told
Fred Goldberg, the assistant secre-
tary of the treasury for tax policy.
"You caved in" to complaints about
some of the tax increases in Bush's
In Concord, N.H., Bush issued a
new plea for passage of the short-
term plan. "Just pass this plan and
give the American people a chance
to see whether it's going to work, as
I'm confident it will," he said in a
speech before the New Hampshire
