seat has already been eliminated.
This would have no effect on the
seat. It would just eliminate the
name from the code."
According to data that the Rules
and Elections Committee obtained
from the Office of Statistical
Services, the School of Information
and Library Studies students receive
their degrees from Rackham and are
counted as Rackham students in the
These students are not considered
students of an individual school by
MSA because they receive their de-
grees from Rackham. The School of
Information and Library Studies seat
was eliminated the Monday before
spring break by a vote of MSA's
Election Board/Court. The vote had
to take place within a week of the
announcement of the election date.
The Rules and Elections
Committee has asked that current

in the fall since he was elected to a
full term under the old apportion-
"There are pros and cons to this
issue," Thiry said. "The real con
side is that we're losing direct con-
trol of a representative. On the pro
side, if we really want to, we could
send eight people via Rackham to

took the seat away but didn't really

"We've got to find a place where
we can put him right on the canvas.
It's got to be one of those Super
Tuesday states. We've got to in-
crease that margin," Buchanan said
as he campaigned in Louisiana.
Buchanan and his aides are hard
pressed to say which of the Super
Tuesday states they expect to

of the Bush campaign, said that de-
spite Buchanan's apparent determi-
nation to press on, "they're going to
be numerically out of this race," by

train even if he does badly in pri-

there is no doubt he is the clear fa-
vorite to do well, to do better than I
can," Buchanan said.
"We're going to keep right on
going," he said. "We're not folding
any tents after Georgia."
Kight said, "The controversy is
coming from the fact that you have
some other schools that are distinct,
small schools that have their own
representatives and I guess people
are worried that somehow
Information and Library Studies is
being unfairly treated."
The amendment to eliminate the
name from the code was tabled until
next week's meeting.
Representatives who are unhappy
with the election court's decision
must appeal to the Central Student
Judiciary, the high court in MSA, as
soon as possible.
Kight said he felt the decision by
the Election Court was a good one.
"I think the election court made a
pretty rock solid decision that this is
clearly the way it's supposed to be
done according to the MSA constitu-
tion," Kight said.
Re-apportionment also gave
Rackham another seat on the assem-

students enrolled in the graduate
school since the last re-apportion-
Some representatives were disap-
pointed about this issue as well be-
cause Rackham will not receive the
new seat until next fall's election.

said he had hoped to have a half-
term candidate elected to fill a half-
term seat on the assembly until next
"I understand the concerns of the
Rackham representatives that they
are being underrepresented.
However, there's no provision any-
where in the code for electing a half-
term seat in a large school," Kight

Giseal Vallandigham, director of
corporate communications for
SALLIE MAE, said the IDEA bill is
not an adequate alternative for the
existing financial aid resources.
Vallandigham said she was con-
cerned about the connection between
the IRS and employers and the addi-
tional counseling costs businesses
will have to bear to help employees
repay IDEA loans.
"How will schools pay for the
extra burden of administrating the
program?" she asked. Vallandigham
claimed universities will be forced to
increase fees or decrease services.
Vallandigham also questioned
how taxpayers would handle the
burden of IDEA loans which default
after 25 years.
"fWhatever you call it - it's still
a default," she said.
Vallandigham also said the IRS
had admitted that collecting the
loans would pose serious problems.
"We think that the hurdles just
mentioned will create processing
problems in student loans. If the
IDEA program does go through,
then the current programs will out-
perform it," she added.
But Executive Director of the
University's Washington, D.C. of-
fice Tom Butts was critical of
"That's ridiculous by any stretch
of the imagination. A direct loan
program is easier for institutions to

Bullard also commented on the
strong showing of Patrick Buchanan
in Republican presidential primaries
so far: "Facism for America.
Coming soon to a city near you."
"Buchanan is the best mobilizer
of the campaign and is tragically
moving it to the right," Bullard said.
"Buchanan is much more effective
in mobilization out of fear.
"Organization and mobilizing
people does make a difference."
He criticized the Reagan-Bush
era for inciting "demobilization
politics" and "screwing up the minds
of the American people that they
can't make government work for the
Bullard said people that grew up
in the Reagan-Bush era have no faith
in the system of government. People
think the government "can't be used
in a positive way for the public
good," Bullard said.
"The public knows a lot more
about sports as a diversion and an
entertainment than they know about
any level of government," he added.
"Somewhere our education sys-
tem is failing because our education
is happening on television," Bullard
said. Voters have insufficient
knowledge of complex issues be-
cause the advertisers have a "shared
interest in making sure there is no
consistent coherent criticism of the
system," he said.
administer than the current dinosaur
we work with," he said.
Butts added that one entity would
be responsible for the entire process,
with one loan application and one
source to distribute money to
In addition, Butts said paying an
IDEA loan would be as easy as fill-
ing out a box on a W-4 form. The
IRS is structured to handle the added
costs of handling IDEA loan repay-
ments, he said.
"Is that an impossible job? The
IRS itself said it isn't," he added.
Butts said taxpayers will have to
cover few defaults. A student who
borrows $15,000 at the government-
sponsored interest rate and makes
$25,000 a year after graduating,
would pay back the IDEA loan well
before the 25 year time limit.
"Surely the defaults will be less
than the $3.6 billion paid in the cur-
rent system," he added.
Butts said the IDEA bill is a
"curious proposal." It has received
support from Petri, Sen. Dave
Durenburger (D-Minn.) and the
National Taxpayers' Union, which
Butts noted is "hardly a liberal
Sarah Wreford, spokesperson for
the IRS, said she was not confident
that the IDEA legislation would
"In an election year, hardly any
legislation ever makes it - each
side wants to blame the other," she
said. "More likely, a compromise*
will come in 1993."

"It's basically going to be a stu-
dent-written social events policy,"
Marwah said. "The administrators
are doing exactly what they should
be doing for students - advising."
Eshelman agreed, commenting,
"There are disagreements, but they
are being taken on as disagreements
between peers and not between ad-
ministrators and lowly students."
Organizations participating in the
ongoing Union policy adjustment in-
clude the Black Greek Association,
Black Student Union, Michigan
Student Assembly, MUBR, RHA
and the University Activities Center.
Marwah added that the new pol-
icy should reflect multicultural input.
"With the minority groups there, it's
good that we're getting variety of
representation," she said.
