tions are continuing."
"The victim is not affiliated
with the University," Baisden
added.
Candy Beaver, a statistical clerk
in the Office of the Registrar, said
she saw the victim spinning the
cube before the incident.
"We could tell he was pretty
out of it. We figured he was high or
something," Beaver said.
Tymensky described bystanders
as apathetic. She claimed they
didn't stop because they "just saw
that he was a street person."
A crowd of 20 to 30 people
formed by the time the ambulance
arrived.

LSA junior Priti Marwah, chair
of the Michigan Union Board, ex-
pressed concern about the safety of
students in light of incidents such
as this.
No security was supposed to be
at the door of the Union at the time
of the incident, she added.
"This obviously shows the
problems with the homeless situa-
tion and the area around the
Union," Marwah said. "It breaks
my heart to even have an access
policy, but someone has to take a
hard-line approach and protect the
students of the University."
Marwah said one possible solu-
tion is to have a full-time access
policy, but the issue will not be
discussed at the next Michigan
Union Board meeting scheduled for
this Friday.

FRIEDMAN
Continued from page 1
through the Senate on the day the
Madrid peace talks opened.
He argued that the shrinking
threat of nuclear war and the disso-
lution of the Soviet Union account
for this dwindling attention.
"Neither of those are present
today or in the near future. As a re-
sult our interest level in that part
of the world has radically dimin-
ished," he said.
During a question and answer
session, Friedman outlined a solu-
tion which would recognize
Israel's right to exist and create a
Palestinian territory of which
Israel would supervise the
demilitarization.
"The task I set myself was to
define a peace settlement that
would please my grocer ... I am
looking for goals that Israel can

implementtomorrow by itself,"
Friedman said.
Students attending Friedman's
lecture had mixed reactions to his
ideas and peace plans.
"(Friedman) definitely had an
Israeli slant by the fact he put
peace in terms of an Israeli grocer
... I think he is one of the most re-
alistic speakers I ever heard," said
LSA sophomore Amy Sandgrund
said.
Stephen Sheehi, a graduate stu-
dent in Near Eastern studies, dis-
puted Friedman's argument that
the conference was free from sym-
bolic gestures.
"He was totally wrong about
signs. If signs weren't important,
then why were Israelis making an
issue of shaking hands? The confer-
ence had no other meaning, but
symbolic," Sheehi said. "His peace
plan is a submission plan," he
added.

STANDARDS
Continued from page 1
He wrote that this would encourage
colleges to participate in voluntary
self-improvement programs rather
than force schools to adopt an
accrediting association's specific
policies.
Ruth Kallio, associate director
of the University Office of Aca-
demic Planning and Analysis, said
that CHE. is an interesting issue.
"Clearly, the federal government is
trying to send a message," Kallio
said. However, it will be surprising
if CHE's contract is not renewed
because it would be difficult for a
new group to step in and take over,
she said.
Kallio said the University is ac-
credited by the North Central As-

sociation of Schools and Colleges,
which does not have diversity
standards.
Kallio said North Central will
not likely scrutinize the University
during its next accreditation in the
year 2000. "The basic soundness of
the institution is not in question,"
she said.
Percy Bates, University director
for programming for educational
opportunity and professor of educa-
tion, said diversity is an important
standard for evaluating a university.
"Yes, it should rank right up there
with all other aspects of a sound ed-
ucation," Bates said.
The Michigan Mandate "es-
tablished diversity as a value and a
goal or aim for the University,"
Bates said.

society," he added.
However, members from the
Homeless Action Committee
(HAC) criticized the timing of
Jackson's speech. "Jackson's speak-
ing at the same time as the free meal
for the homeless ... They have to
choose between dinner and hearing
him speak for their cause," said
HAC member Jen Rubin.

Rubin said another criticism in-
volved the usage of campus security
at the event - the same security
that bans the homeless from enter-
ing University buildings.
"It seemed ironic that Jackson is
speaking about awareness of the
homeless problem in a way that's
not friendly to the homeless
themselves.
"HAC has talked with the orga-
nizers and they're well aware of
people's concerns," Robin added.
