Michigan Student Assembly elections began yester-
day with a good turnout, said election poll site workers
and MSA Election Director Carrie Pittman.
"It's been going really well," Pittman said. "There's
good voter turnout so far and we've had good poll site
coverage. We had a couple people not show up here and
there (to work) but it's been pretty smooth so far."
Pittman said she was unable to estimate yesterday's
turnout, but by 3 p.m. she said she thought about 600
students voted at the Fishbowl.
Poll site workers agreed voter turnout had been
steady throughout the day.
"Things have been hectic and pretty busy," said
Engineering junior and Fishbowl poll site worker Rupak
Rajachar. "We ran out of a form, but we got new ones
as soon as we ran out. It seems to be pretty well orga-
nized to us laymen."
Workers at other polling sites said students seemed
to be interested in voting.
"I've been here an hour and it's been really busy,"
said Engineering junior and Michigan Union poll site
worker Todd Tjoelker. "We've had enough people to
run out of things." See ELETmINS Paize 2

While women do not face major barriers to
advanced degree programs, gender inequality
remains unsolved according to a report
released yesterday by the Office of the
William Stebbins, associate dean for
Faculty Programs and member of the eight-
person committee compiling the report, said
recruiting efforts need to be increased in order
to mitigate the inequity of women faculty.
"There is a pipeline and we're not using it.
More and more women are getting their Ph.D.s
but we're not seeing them in faculty positions,"
he said. "That's what's upsetting."
The report, "Women at the University of
Michigan: A Statistical Report on the Status of
Women Students, Faculty, and Staff," cata-
logues the ratio of women at different levels
and positions within the University
Among the findings highlighted in the
The University awards 49 percent of
bachelor's degrees and 34 percent of
doctorates to women, but only 18 percent of
tenured and tenure-track faculty and 8 percent
of executive administration are women;
Women of color represent 25.5 percent
of service/maintenance workers, but only 4.9
percent of professional and administrative jobs
and 2 percent of faculty. Out of 1,283 full
professors, 11 are women of color; and,
Women compose 75 percent of
employees in professional and administrative
job in grades one through six, but only 23
percent in grades 16 and above with salary
differentials between men and women greater
in higher grades.
Committee members remarked the disparity
of women - especially women of color who
are reportedly "critically underrepresented in
the academic pipeline" - in the faculty and
administrative arenas is the most troubling
Women constitute one out of 11 executive
administrators, 17 out of 114 department
chairs, and 18 out of 53 deans and associate

Republican City Council candidates
have received more than twice the amount
of campaign contributions that their
Democrat opponents have received in all
but the 4th Ward in this year's election
State law requires city council candi-
dates to report their campaign contribu-
tions and expenditures to Washtenaw
County. This year's reporting deadline
Joe O'Neal, the 3rd Ward Republican
candidate who refused to accept contribu-
tions more than $25, pulled in the most
donations - more than $13,700, while
10-year council incumbent Larry Hunter
(D-1st Ward), who is seeking reelection,
was not required to file his contributions
because he does not plan to spend more
than $1,000 on his campaign.
"I have always run a low-budget cam-
paign," Hunter said. "That's just the way it
came out. If I spend more than $1,000, I
will be required to file the necessary
amendment, and I will file my
Hunter also spent less than $1,000 in
his 1988 campaign. In his four other cam-
paigns he has spent more than the mini-
mum filing requirement.
Hunter's 1st Ward opponent,
Republican Howard King, has accumu-
lated about $7,655 in contributions with
only three donations of more than $100.
King received $250 from the City
Republican Headquarters - $200 and
$150 from Ann Arbor residents - and all
other contributions have been less than or
equal to $100.
The Ann Arbor Apartments
Association made the largest donation to
the campaign, contributing $400 to both
4th Ward Republican candidate Franz
Mogdis and 5th Ward Republican candi-
date Jeff Muir. King also accepted $200
from the association.
Incumbent Bob Grady (D-3rd Ward)
also received a check from the Ann Arbor
Apartment Association for $200, but after
some deliberation, returned the check.
"I got it, I looked at it, and I said this is
a quandary," Grady said. "I serve on the
Housing Board of Appeals, and while I do
not see an occasion in the future where it
would, cause me to make an immoral deci-
sion, I decided to hand it back."
O'Neal, Grady's 3rd Ward opponent
who accepted $10,406 in money contribu-
tions and $3,300 in in-kind contributions
- services or gifts with a money value,
but not legal tender - accepted no dona-
tion equaling more than $25 except for a

No incumbents will appear on
the 2nd Ward ballot, but two
seniors, Democrat Ralph Michener,
a senior citizen, and 18-year-old
Libertarian Tim Schrodel, a senior
in high school, will face off against
Republican candidate Peter Fink in
the April 6 Ann Arbor City Council
Schrodel said he did not think it
was an odd idea to be running for
city council as a Community High
"I do whatever I want,"
Schrodel said. "Not many high
school people would take the
initiative of getting in front of
groups of people and campaign, but
"The present council is really
bad and really scary," he said.
Despite his age and lack of political
experience, Schrodel said he thinks
he could do a better job than current
The other two candidates,
sharing Schrodel's perspective, also
said they could make improvements
in city government activities.
Fink, an Ann Arbor native who
runs an investment business, said
his experience and skills make him
"extremely" qualified to serve on
"I've done enough real-estate
development and know enough
about land usage, that I think I can
lend a lot to council," said Fink,
who characterizes himself as
"I'm running for council
because I was asked and I was
askedsbecause Icrab about it so
much that they said, 'Well, why
don't you do something?"'
According to past election re-
sults, Fink has a good chance of
winning the race because the 2nd
Ward is considered to be predomi-
However, Michener, the
Democratic candidate, disputed the
validity of these projections.
"As I am campaigning," said
Michener, a public administration
executive, "I find there are more

Associate Vice President Mary
Ann Swain was not awarded a high-
level administrative position at West
Virginia University (WVU), the uni-
versity announced yesterday.
WVU President Neil Bucklew se-
lected Bill Vehse from among five
finalists - including Swain. Vehse
currently serves as WVU interim
provost and vice president for
Academic Affairs and Research.
Vehse has held the position since
last year, when the former provost
and vice president for Academic
Affairs and Research left WVU to
become president of the University
Swain visited WVU Feb. 12-14
to interview for the position, but she
said her interest in seeking a position
there did not stem from any unhap-
piness at the University.
"It's not that I wanted to leave
here," she said.
Swain added thaf although she is
disappointed about the WVU job,
she is "not particularly" applying for
WVU's Provost Search
Committee presented a list of three
of the five finalists .to Bucklew in
early March. Bucklew selected
Vehse from the three finalists.
