Libertarian Marrou
attacks government
.in presidential race
by Hope Calati

New alcohol policy
to be implemented
at Union events


uaiiy Start Keporter
Libertarian presidential candidate
Andre Marrou courted voters with
an anti-government message chal-
lenging the positions of the two ma-
jor political parties to a crowd of 50
* people in the Union last night.
"Our thrust will always be to
minimize, minimize, minimize --.


fastest growing national party. "The
Libertarian party will be the next
major party. It is inevitable that we
will elect a Libertarian president and
congress," Marrou said.
"We expect to do well not with-
standing Ross Perot," Marrou added,
referring to the Texas billionaire
who recently entered the race.
Marrou highlighted the issues of
his anti-government platform which
include the repeal of the personal in-
come tax, a restoration of gun own-
ership rights, legalization of drugs,
an end to all tax funded subsidies
and an elimination of governmental
bureaucracy through attrition.
He said the current system of
taxation is destructive to the econ-
omy. "Whatever you tax is going to
be discouraged," Marrou said. He
said reducing bureaucracy faster
than abolishing taxes will create a
surplus which can be applied to the
national debt.
Marrou also advocates the re-
moval of government from health
care. "Health care is expensive be-
cause the government subsidies of
the last 25 years. We would be able
to afford it if the government got out-
(of health care) as we did before the
government got in," Marrou said.
Marrou casted himself as an al-
ternative to the Democratic and
Republican candidates. "(They) are
trying to mandate activity or restrict
action ... You should have as much
freedom as possible provided you!
don't hurt or defraud anyone,"
Marrou said.
Marrou said the Democratic and
Republican forum for national de-]
bate effectively closes out other can-1
didates. He said Clinton and Bush!
"say anything and do anything they
can get away with to get elected." 1
Marrou criticized the news media
for ignoring his candidacy. "Why
has the press given so much press to
David Duke who is a Nazi and a Klu
Klux Klan member. But what about
me? I'm just a nice guy who quotes{
the Constitution."
LSA senior Curt Weilder said, "I
think this represents a trend ... I
think he's on target in predicting that
the Libertarian party is growing."
Engineering senior Tom
Wilberding said, "I agreed with a lot
of his ideas ... but he didn't address
how those ideas could be imple-

The Michigan Union Board of
Representatives (MUBR) voted
yesterday to change the policy for
serving alcohol at social events held
within the Union.
The new policy will become ef-
fective after it is approved by the
University Task Force on alcohol
and other drugs on or by Aug. 1.
Guidelines and possible sanc-
tions have been established in the
new policy designed to eliminate
underage drinking at University
The guidelines for the provision
of alcohol at any social event are:
All guests must be 21 years of
age or accompanied by a parent or
legal guardian;
Substantial amounts of non-
alcoholic drinks and high-protein,
low-fat food must be available;
At receptions with meals, al-
cohol can be served for no longer
than an hour before the meal and at
receptions without meals alcohol
cannot be served for more than two
hours; and,
Serving of alcohol will cease
an hour before the event ends.
MUBR chair Priti Marwah said
she does not believe that the new
policy will have a great impact on

'Sting' operation
worth $3,000
The Briarwood Sears shopping
store was the scene of an intricate
scam during the afternoon of April
1. The scam, labeled by the police
as a "pigeon drop," began with a
conversation between two strangers.
One woman was approached by a
another woman who said she had
just found a purse containing
$18,000. At that point, a third
woman - who police said was in-
volved in the scam - joined the
conversation, claiming to be a Sears

groups), but if you have people un-

served) events anymore."
If any organization violates a
policy regulation, the following ,
sanctions may be taken: written rep-
rimand on the first offense, loss of
privileges to provide bar service at,

right to schedule any event in the
Union for a year.

Events occurring within the,

House, and Recreation facilities
will be governed by the Social
Events Policy.
The alleged employee persuaded
the other two women to turn the
money over to Sears, adding that
they could split it three ways if it
was not claimed.
The two scam artists demanded
"good faith money" from the victim.
They said she had to surrendet
$3,000 to be allowed in the deal. Th
victim gave the money to the twq
women who pretended to put th'
money into an envelope. The two
women then pocketed the money.

We will always be trying to cut the
government," Marrou said.
Marrou ran for vice president on
the Libertarian slate in 1988 and has
served in the Alaska State
Legislature from 1985-87. His vice
presidential candidate is Nancy
Lord, a lawyer and medical doctor
who ran for Washington, D.C.,

Marrou and Lord are appearing
on the primary ballots in New
Hampshire, California and
Nebraska. He said several states
have laws which require third party
candidates to gather signatures or
pay a fee to appear on the ballot.
The campaign is focusing on get-
ting on the ballot in all 50 states for
the November general election. The
ticket is currently on the ballot in 26
states and near certification in
another eight, Marrou said.
