Most universities prevent any campus group
from discriminating unfairly. But what if the group
happens to be the Department of Defense and
its ROTC chapters?

Can you imagine being thrown in jail for 10 years
just for possessing two joints? That's what
happened to John Sinclair, who recently spoke

Hillary
Clinton to
speak at
'U' today
by Henry Goldblatt
Daily News Editor
Hillary Clinton, wife of
Democratic front-runner Arkansas
Gov. Bill Clinton, will address
University students today at noon in
the Law School's Hutchins Hall.
"She's a fantastic speaker. She
tends to be particularly well-received
in student areas
- that was a
f factor (in bring-
ing her to the
University),"
said Jonathan
Grossman, LSA
senior and a
member of U of
M Clinton for
Clinton President
Committee.
Clinton - who specializes in
corporate law - will speak about
her views on law and experiences as
an attorney, Grossman said.
Grossman said the committee
brought Clinton to the University in-
stead of the presidential candidate
due to scheduling conflicts.

Presidential hopefuls yearning
for the votes of Michigan's blue-
collar workers toured factories yes-
terday, promising a stronger econ-
omy and job security for nervous
workers.
Democrat Paul Tsongas got a
union jacket and a lukewarm recep-
tion when he pitched his idea to do
away with strikes to workers at a
Detroit auto parts factory.
Vice President Dan Quayle told
about 1,000 cheering workers at
Detroit Diesel Corp. that their
turnaround of a plant destined for
closure four years ago symbolized
the strength of American workers.
"I am getting just a little sick
and tired about those people from
outside our country who tell us the
American worker can't get the job
done," Quayle said. "You're. out
there every day doing the job and do-
ing it well."
Democrat Jerry Brown cam-
paigned in Detroit and Democrat
Bill Clinton spoke at a town meet-
ing in Warren as the candidates fo-
cused their attention on the indus-
trial Midwest before Tuesday's

contests in Michigan and Illinois.
Republican Patrick Buchanan
also campaigned in Michigan in
hopes of appealing to the General
Motors workers that are being laid
off. He focused his attention on
Michigan because its traditionally

automobile-based economy is in
deep trouble and the law permits
independents and Democrats to vote
in the Republican primary.
"When you get up in the morn-
ing, you don't read about 74,000
General Motors workers being laid
off, you read about President
Buchanan laying off 75,000 more
bureaucrats and regulators so you
can get the economy going,"
Buchanan promised when he spoke at
Lansing Community College.
He is hoping to strike fire with
voters in Michigan, where the un-
employment rate is 9.6 percent.

The reauthorization of the Higher
Education Act of 1965 will increase both the
number of college students who qualify to re-
ceive financial aid and the maximum sum
they can receive, -say government and
University officials.
But the bill has to pass the hurdles of the
Senate Appropriations Committee and state
legislatures before it will provide tangible re-
sults.
The bill, passed by the Senate Feb. 21,
outlines a seven-year plan reauthorizing fed-
eral financial aid to college students. It will
provide students with $15.7 billion in aid in
the form of Pell Grants and Guaranteed
Student Loans (GSL) in its first year.
The bill was sponsored by Sen. Claiborne
Pell (D-R.I.) and Sen. Nancy Kassebaum (R-

barrier to pursuing a higher education.'
- Bill Bryan
Pell press secretary

George Bush:
President Bush tice vetoed, and
then signed a Civil Rights Act
during his presidency. He
supports equal rights for all races
and religions, but does not favor
the use of quotas as the preferred
method of achieving that goal.
Bush has made several minority
appointments during his
presidency, most notably the
appointment last fall of Judge
Clarence Thomas to the Supreme
court.
Bill Clinton:
Clinton's civil rights policy is
based on the idea of providing
equal access to education,
economic opportunity, and health
care for all Americans, regardless
of race, gender, religion, or sexual
orientation. Clinton emphasizes
his record as Arkansas governor
as evidence of his commitment to
civil rights, including
appointments of minorities to staff
positions and state boards, and
actions designed to improve the
status of minority businesses in
the state.
David Duke:
Duke's platform calls for equal
rights and opportunity for all
Americans. To accomplish this, he
plans to eliminate all Affirmative
Action practices. He is staunchly
opposed to the creation of any
kind of legislation that would
create quotas for hiring or
anything else. Duke disavows the
racist and anti-Semitic policies he
supported as the Grand Wizard of
the Ku Klux Klan.
Paul Tsongas:
Tsongas' platform calls for
"creating a culture of true
inciusivitv_" This inclu de

Kan.).
"We want to make sure the economic ne-
cessity is not a barrier to pursuing a higher
education," said Bill Bryant, press secretary
for Pell.
The reauthorization act targets middle-in-
come families. Its qualification procedure
now eliminates home and farm equity for
families that make less than $50,000. Before
the act's passage, this criteria prevented many
middle-class students from receiving financial
aid, a Pell spokesperson said.
If the act goes into effect in 1993, the

maximum amount of aid a student could re-
ceive would increase from $2,400 to $3,600
for Pell Grants and $2,500 to $3,700 for
GSLs.
However, because the reauthorization act
has eliminated the entitlement provision that
automatically provided financial aid in the
past, all increased funds for Pell Grants and
GSLs will have to be approved by the Senate
Appropriations Committee, said Tom Butts,
executive director of the University's govern-
ment relations office in Washington, D.C.
"There is no guarantee that the funding

Pell Grants increased from $1,800 to $2,400,
he said. "The idea of funds increasing from
$2,400 to $3,600 is a pretty big leap," he
added.
Still, Butts said he is pleased the Senate
Bill has proposed improving and extending
federal financial aid programs.
A Senate Appropriations Committee
Spokersperson said the United State's $450
billion national debt has made it difficult to
maintain current funding levels.
"Appropriations almost never meet ex-
pected levels ... It looks like the ceilings will
not let us even keep up with inflation," said a
Senate Appropriations Committee spokesper-
son.
The spokesperson added that possible cuts
