tions by regulating special exception
permits, said Garcia.
All Fraternities, Sororities and
Co-ops are required to attain special
exception permits before building
additions, or moving into a new
house.
Two Greek houses have launched
lawsuits against the city in the last
year to contest decisions made by
the city Planning Commission re-
garding denied special exception.
Another house took steps toward le-
gal actions but was granted permis-
sion for expansion before they be-
came necessary.
"All we really want is better rep-
resentation in the city council,"
Garcia said. "We're not looking for
a power play or anything. We just
want to be heard."
Twenty students from the Greek
system approached the city clerk in
January and asked to be deputized to
conduct voter registration.
The registrars visited most of the
Greek houses on campus to tell stu-
dents how city polites affects them
and registering those who expressed
an interest.
LSA sophomore Julie Stacey, one
of the deputized registrars and the
Panhel representative to the drive

said people in the houses were very
receptive to the idea.
"There were people who were not
registered at all," she said. "And
others who really believed in what
they were doing."
Namerow said the drive will have
an powerful affect on the April 6
council election. He pointed out that
when Mayor Liz Brater ran for the
council in the 3rd Ward in 1989 she
won by a margin of only six votes.
Most of the Greek houses are lo-
cated in the third ward and Namerow
said that the 720 extra votes, in addi-
tion to the votes cast by Greeks who
had previously registered, can
greatly swing an election.
"It's giving us a voice in our own
destiny," he said. "I hope that the
candidates this year are going to hear
our concerns. It's making them listen
which they didn't have to do
before."
Namerow said he felt this year's
council candidates have made a
"concerted effort" to meet members
of the Greek associations.
IFC and Panhel hope to host a
candidate forum on April 1 which
will allow students to direct ques-
tions to those running for council
seats. No details about the forum
have yet been finalized.

BOARDS

an independent panel to evaluate
filed grievances to insure the police
act within the law," Warren said.
"It's especially important at this
university considering the contro-
versy the deputization process has
created," Warren added. "This board
should instill confidence in students
about police practice because there's
always elected students, faculty and
staff overseeing these practices."
The purpose of the SSOB would
be to monitor and make recommen-
dations regarding police policy. Four
students, four faculty and four staff
would preside on this board.
The SRC presented this proposal
to University Vice President for
Student Affairs Maureen Hartford
on March 16. They hope to present
the proposal to the University's ex-
ecutive officers at their meeting
March 24.
Warren said the two boards
would have different purposes.
"The CSGB's purpose is to re-
view specific incidents that allegedly
occurred because of police misprac-
tice. The SSOB is meant to ensure
that general policies are intelligently
followed by the DPS," Warren said.
The eleven applicants for the

CGSB were Nursing junior Thomas
Atkinson, second-year law student
Michael Burkhardt, Natural Re-
sources junior Michael Dorsey, sec-
ond-year graduate student Regina
Freer, second-year law student
David Klaus, LSA junior Greg
Morrison, LSA junior Christiana
Ochoa, pre-candidate graduate stu-
dent Susan Prince, first-year law
student David Schwartz, Engineer-
ing senior John Vandenberg and
LSA junior Raphael Zicklin.
Yesterday was also the deadline
for students to file their candidacy
for the Student Regent Advisory
Board. Only two students, LSA Se-
nior Todd Ochoa and LSA first-year
student Joshua Englehardt, submit-
ted their applications.
Campus Governance Chair Ken
Bartlett said he will extend the
deadline to at least tomorrow be-
cause only two students applied.
Six students and the MSA vice
president will constitute the board.
MSA's Campus Governance
Committee will interview and
choose board members.
APARTHEID

in my own country," Mandela told
reporters.
A radical Black group, the Pan
Africanist Congress, denounced the
vote. "The all-white referendum is
an obscenity and an insult to the dis-
possessed masses of our country," it
said.
Andries Treurnicht, leader of the
pro-apartheid Conservative Party,
conceded defeat. But he said de
Klerk "will be the victim of his own
reform."
"Mr. de Klerk has won his refer-
endum, just like Gorbachev won his.
Gorbachev is today out of power ...
and Mr. de Klerk is negotiating his
own government out of power,"
Treurnicht said.
Right-wing groups say they will
fight rather than accept a Black gov-
ernment, although their credibility
was damaged by the referendum re-
sult.

that theft is a problem and that they
often feel paranoid when sleeping at
the shelter.
"They'll steal your clothes;
they'll steal anything," Justice said.
'It's very intimidating
for any quiet, reserved
individual.'
- Jean Summerfield
Executive director,
Shelter Association of
Ann Arbor
"I've seen just about a little of ev-
erything going on here."
"There are a lot of idiots around
here," he added. "Most of them are
not in their right mind."
Harassment of women is also

which has solicited 70,000
signatures - well above the
required minimum - must submit
its petition tommorrow to get a
referendum on the November ballot.
If CFV's proposal then passes,
existing anti-discrimination clauses
which include sexual orientation -
in Boulder, Denver, and Aspen -
will be overturned, and homosexuals
will not be recognized in Colorado
as a minority group protected by
quota privileges and affirmative
action.
LBGCA member and UC senior
Marcus Young said the LBGCA is
speaking with a legal defense
agency, but is not planning more
protests. "We don't want to make
(McCartney) a martyr for their
cause."
Young said the purpose of the
newly-created university task force
has not yet been specified, but will
examine both the housing and aca-
demic needs of the lesbians and gay
men on campus.
"It's been approved and now
we're looking for students, faculty,
and staff (to be on the committee),"
Young said.
McCartney held a meeting in
February, when the university com-

where men outnumber women three
to one. A women's group meets in a
house owned by the Shelter Asso-
ciation for four three-hour sessions a
week to discuss these types of prob-
lems.
One student who volunteers at
the meetings, who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity, said she has
heard every single woman talk about
sexual harassment in the night shel-
ter.
"The guys will make comments
and they sit by the door acting
rough," she said. "It's very intimi-
dating for any quiet, reserved indi-
vidual."
Summerfield said the women's
group helps them deal with these
situations
"It provides a safe place where
they can settle in an environment
that is hopefully caring and warm
and safe," she said. "It's important to
provide this type of thing at .the
shelter because the number of men is
so much greater."
munity learned of his affiliation, to
respond to numerous questions from
the media about his position in CFV.
"First he apologized for using his
name with the group," Young said.
"Then he said, 'Homosexuals are
an abomination and that these people
should not be allowed special protec-
tion because they do not reproduce'
- in front of a CU podium."
Assistant Athletic Director for
Media Relations Dave Plati, who
helped organize McCartney's meet-
ing, said, "The issue was when he
tried to explain himself - that is
when he got in trouble."
The following day LBGCA and
the UC Student Union held a press
conference, and a few days later they
marched down to UC President Judy
Albino's house in protest of the uni-
versity's lack of action in
reprimanding McCartney. However,
Albino was out of town.
Plati said Albino reprimanded
McCartney for not using "clear and
conscious separation" in his
affiliation with the organization.
But Tebedo said he felt the issue
was much larger. "Bill McCartney's
number one mistake is that he was
not politically correct. He just stood
up for what he believed.
"If you're pro-Bible, pro-God
you're on the outside looking in," he
added.
