two new representatives from Ann
Arbor," he said. "At the primary we
will see a flowering of talent and en-
thusiasm that will be positive."
Although many Democrats have
expressed an interest in filling one of
the Ann Arbor seats, most are reluc-
tant declare definite intentions until
the Michigan Supreme Court makes
a final ruling on districts.
However, Briere announced yes-
terday that she will run for the state
Legislature in November regardless
of her district.
"I am running for sure," said
Briere. "I think it's past time a
woman was running for this
position."
Briere said she heard near the end
of last year that Bullard may be
leaving his seat. As the chair of the
Democratic party, she began to look
for candidates to fill his seat, she
said.
"I realized there was something
wrong with me, if I didn't think of
myself," she said. "There is a ten-
dency among women to be self-
effacing."
Briere said that at a city party
meeting Thursday, Bullard an-
nounced he would formally declare
his plans March 23. Briere said at
that point she decided she would
make her declaration the same day.
"I would never have run against
Perry in a primary," Briere said.
Other Democrats expected to run
for the House include Bob
Alexander, a former aid to Sen. Lana
Pollack (D- Ann Arbor), and local
attorney Ken Schwartz.

"I think it's premature for me to
announce my campaign," Schwartz
said. "I'm definitely interested in
replacing Perry Bullard, but I'm
waiting to see what the court does."
Briere said she has heard of ap-
proximately eight other names but
she said, "What Ken said is the same
for everyone else. A lot of people
will hesitate to commit until they
know what their district looks like."

At this time, Briere said,
Democrats are in competition
other democrats."

"No
with

She said that because Bullard was
in office for 20 years, people have
been speculating for a long time
Bullard's eventual departure from
the state Legislature. This will yield
many candidates, she said.
"There will be a primary," Briere
said. "But a primary only strength-
ens a candidate."
Republicans are equally unsure
about candidacy, said Ann Arbor
City Councilmember Mark Ouimet
(R-4th Ward).
Ouimet said he might be inter-
ested in a legislative seat, depending
on the shaping of districts.
"I've got to wait and see what
they look like," Ouimet said. "If they
look the way I've seen them drawn,
I'd be very interested."
He said he has also heard specu-
lation about other candidacies, but
said it is still too early to say any-
thing firmly.
"I would say people are waiting
to see what district lines look like,"
he said. "Once they're redrawn, then
you can sit down and put a pencil to
paper to see what opportunities you
have."

Michigan reps
defend ri~ght to
send free mrail1
DETROIT (AP) - Between rookie lawmakers try-
ing to get known and incumbents possibly facing new
territories through redistricting, Michigan has four of
the top 100 users of the congressional free mailing priv-
ilege.
Barbara-Rose Collins of Detroit led all of Congress
in use of the franking privilege in 1991, according to
the National Taxpayers Union.
In 1991, Collins, a first-term Democratic representa-
tive and former Detroit City Council member, spent
$164,872 of taxpayer money to publish and mail
newsletters and letters to her constituents, about $1 per
address in her district.
That exceeded her allowance by more than $22,000.
"I make no apology for communicating with those
people that I represent," Collins said Monday. "It seems
to me that as much interest ought to be exhibited by the
media in the substance of my work on economic devel-
opment policy, job training and unwaged work."
Collins said she would pay for the budget overrun
out of her staff budget.
The other Michigan congress members in the top
100 were Rep. Bob Traxler, D-Bay City, 90th; Rep.
David Camp, R-Midland, 93rd, and Rep. Sander Levin,
D-Southfield, 94th.
Spokespeople for Camp declined immediate com-
ment. A spokesperson for Traxler did not immediately
return a call seeking comment.
Levin said in a telephone interview that he used the
franking privilege to tell constituents of a series of town
meetings and for a survey on health issues that he sent
to every household in the district.
"We were just doing what we've done every year;"
Levin said. "Three-fifths of the money used on town
meeting notices. We didn't alter it because of redistrict-
ing whatsoever. I believe town meetings are a critical
part of my work."
Levin and Traxler have been mentioned as veteran
legislators who may be forced to run against other in-
cumbents this fall because Michigan loses two of its 18
congressional seats because of population shifts in the
1980s.

ELECTION
Continued from page 1
frenetically across Connecticut on
the eve of the state's primary.
Clinton virtually has the nomina-
tion in hand, with a 7-to-1 lead over
Brown in delegates.
"It isn't over. Bill Clinton has not
been anointed by some Politburo,
some secular college of cardinals.
The people get to choose," said
Brown, talking with city employees
in Waterbury.
He said Clinton was "the greatest
bluffer of all time," acting like the
Democratic race was over when
most big industrial states have yet to
vote.
Clinton campaigned aggressively
and worried aloud that the percep-
tion that he has the nomination

locked up would keep his supporters
from turning out to vote, giving
Brown a strong showing.
"I think it's a real possibility be-
tween people saying, 'I don't want
this to be over' and low voter
turnout," Clinton said.
President Bush and Patrick
Buchanan are on the GOP ballot in
Connecticut, but Buchanan has
made little effort there. Bush con-
ducted election-eve satellite inter-
views with Connecticut television
stations.
In the interviews, Bush defended
his call for cutting two Seawolf
submarines from the budget and ac-
cused his opponents of playing "the
oldest, most crass political game in
the world" by promising defense
cuts everywhere but at the plant
gates.

Mary Schwartzberg, an Art School senior, finishes cleaning the snow off her car yesterday.
There was initially about a foot of snow on top of her car. Mary had to call in reinforcements,
namely her boyfriend, because she didn't think she could do the job herself.

APATHY

said LSA junior Jennie Ladd.
Raul Medina, a graduate student
in the School of Public Health, said
although he always votes, he feels
MSA is not a pro-active body.
"I always vote so I guess it's a
trend, but I don't know how much
difference it will make. I've been
here for years and things have stayed
pretty much the same," Medina said.
Many students said they are not
going to vote because they do not

know the election date and are unin-
formed about the issues and
candidates.
Engineering junior Shari
Hausbeck said she has voted in the
past, but will not be voting this year
because there is not much informa-
tion reaching North Campus.
"I don't feel I have enough in-
formation. I used to vote when I
lived in the dorms and there was a
little more information, but there is-
n't much information on North
Campus and that's where I am most
of the time," Hausbeck said.

CRASH

been de-iced twice, at 8:29 p.m. and
at 8:59 p.m., USAir President Seth
Scofield said. The plane left the gate
a minute later.
According to witnesses, the jet
had just begun to lift off the runway
when it slammed back to the ground,
veered sharply to the left and
crashed over an embankment.
The nose, wing and engine
snapped off and the rest of the plane
exploded into a fireball and skidded

into the water with its top sheared
off.

Patrick Silver, who watched from
his home, said the plane appeared to
flip over "three or four times before.
it went into the water. ... It lit up the.
living room. It was a huge fireball."
Inside the fuselage, divers,
repeatedly found dead passengers
floating head down, still strapped
into their floating seats. Some were
charred; others appeared to have
drowned.
A quick evaluation of the cockpit
voice recorder yielded no clues, a,
federal official said yesterday.

in September.
But the committee has come un-
der increasing criticism for failing to
institute significant changes in areas
most in need of reform - specifi-
cally, the prevalence of sexual as-
sault and harassment within the
Greek System.
"I think the IFC needs the support
of all of the houses to accomplish its
goals. With all the publicity that's
going on right now nationally ... and
on campus, people are realizing that
(sexual assault) is a much larger
issue than we thought," said LSA
junior Adrienne Bradley, a member
of Chi Omega sorority. "I mean, it's
happening to people in our houses
and to our friends."
Although the IFC proposed to
implement a mandatory sexual as-
sault awareness dialogue during
Greek Week, members of the Greek
Week Committee failed to include
the event.

"I thought the dialogue was a
great idea, but they were looking to
make Greek Week an enforcement
mechanism and I thought it would
take away from the spirit of the
week," said LSA senior and Greek
Week organizer John Miller. "The
idea was just dropped."
By establishing a resource for the
community, IFC members said they
hope to go beyond token efforts to
combat sexual assault.
However, some students said
they feel Greek Week is an example
of IFC' s lack of action on critical
issues.
. "The IFC seems to think life is all
fun and games, even when it comes
to rape. There is nothing more ap-
propriate for Greek Week than sex-
ual assault awareness," said LSA se-
nior Andrew Astley, a member of
Sigma Phi fraternity.
"This is typical of the IFC.
Everything is for show and there is
no sincerity or substance," said LSA

sophomore Matt Greenburg, also in
Sigma Phi.
"Three years ago the IFC did not
need to be involved. But then the
University and Ann Arbor communi-
ties got tired of what was going on
with noise, alcohol and sexual as-
sault," said IFC President Bruce"
Namerow. "That was when we de-
cided to change our goals from just
legislation to providing resources.
Now we are hoping people will
come to see the IFC as an effective
organization."
"A lot of the new things they're
doing are really good, like the voter
registration. It really got more peo- ;
ple to vote," said LSA junior and
Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity member
Scott Merves. "The decisions
they've made in the past have been
implemented and things have
changed. In some cases it has been
for the worse, but some have made
things better."
