Olivet students plan to
complete semester at home

OLIVET, Mich. (AP) - Many
Black students plan to take advan-
tage of offers to complete their
classes without returning to racially
troubled Olivet College, a Black
student leader said yesterday.
"Our grades won't be as strong as
they would have been had we re-
mained on campus for the last three
weeks of school," said Henry Hen-
derson, a Southfield senior who
leads the Black student protest.
"But we chose to stand on prin-
cipal, which isn't always popular."
Tensions exploded on the cam-
pus about 25 miles southwest of
Lansing after an April 2 brawl be-
tween 70 Black and white students
in the lobby of Shipherd Hall dormi-
tory. Two students were injured.
Last week, Olivet officials ex-
cused 183 students from classes for
the week after 35 Black students
proclaimed the campus unsafe and
moved out of their dormitories.
There are 50 Blacks among
Olivet's 708 students. School offi-
cials said they couldn't immediately
determine yesterday how many
Black students had returned to
School officials adopted 24-hour

security for the college following a
meeting with parents on Saturday.
According to Henderson, five
Black students stayed on campus,
with the remainder either commut-
ing to classes or - like him - fin-
ishing the semester at home.
Olivet's faculty members on
Monday voted to allow students to

returning to classes is
by far the best option
for students ...

Olivet Academic Dean
request alternative course work for
the semester ending April 28. Stu-
dents must submit a written request
by April 21.
Instructors will respond to stu-
dents' requests within 24 hours with
a list of course work options, and
students will have 48 hours to accept
one of the options:
"Obviously, I think returning to
classes is by far the best option for
students, because they would benefit
from being in the standard classroom
atmosphere and have continued

contact with their instructors and
other students," Academic Dean Lee
Cooper said.
Cooper said classroom alterna-
tives include:
Completing at home all as-
signments for the semester and re-
turning to campus for a final exam.
Receiving a grade based on
work completed by April 1, the day
before the Shipherd brawl, and ei-
ther waiving or taking a final exam
on campus or at home by April 28.
Receiving an incomplete grade,
in the course but completing all as-
signments and a final exam by Oct.
Withdrawing without penalty
from the class.
The April 2 fracas began after a
white female student called for help
from a mostly white fraternity in
handling a dispute with her white
boyfriend, who was outside her
dorm room with two Black friends.
The day before, there were false
rumors on campus that a white fe-
male student had been attacked by
four Black male students. That night
fires were set on two ends of a hall

Kroger would lose $2 million per
week in sales for the 5 Ann Arbor
stores and 2 in Ypsilanti. He specu-
lated that Kroger was down approx-
imately 90 percent in sales due to the
Produce clerk David Seveska,
who has worked for Kroger for 18
years, said there were exceptional
amounts of public support. "We all
wish to thank the public. We can not
emphasize that enough."

"If you are a good worker then a
company will not get rid of you. In
my experience the unions never
saved me or my husband's job," said
a Kroger shopper who chose not to
honor the picket line and asked not
to be identified.
Approximately 7,800 employees
at 65 Kroger stores in southeastern
Michigan voted to reject the compa-
ny's proposed contract. Contract ne-
gotiations broke off April 3 and no
new bargaining has been scheduled.
Kroger's proposal called for
elimination of 10 personal days a

year for full-time employees and of-
fered $1.50 an hour in wage in-
creases spread over four years. Full-
time employees would still have five
personal days, six holidays and up to
five weeks paid vacation, Kroger
Workers now earn $4.50 to
$10.37 an hour, depending on their
work status.
The previous contract expired
Jan. 3.

Macomb went for Ronald Reagan
by 2-1 margins and helped put Bush
in office. However, the economic
downturn has clouded Bush's
prospects this year.
Bush's campaign chair, Robert
Teeter, said Michigan would be "a
close state" and tough to win be-
cause of the economic problems. But
he added, "There's no reason to be-
lieve we can't carry it." Surveys
show that voters are looking for al-
ternatives to the status quo.
Seizing on the mood of voter
alienation, Bush said, "If America is
going to change, the government
must change."
Portraying himself as a reform-
minded leader, Bush recalled pro-
posals he unveiled 10 days ago "to
cure the paralysis that grips the

United States Congress" - includ-
ing a limit on congressional terms.
Playing to auto workers, Bush
said, "A reformed government
knows its limits, refusing to impose
Michigan would be 'a
close state' and tough
to win, but 'There's no
reason to believe we
can't carry it.'
- Robert Teeter
Bush's campaign chair
undue burdens on business and con-
sumers alike." He reiterated that he
would veto any congressional effort
to mandate an increase in auto fuel
efficiency standards.
Bush also used the speech to

flesh out the financing for previously
announced jobs programs.
He said he would seek $50 mil-
lion for programs to streamline fed-
eral job training and vocational pro-
grams and $55 million for a job ap-
prenticeship project to discourage
young people from dropping out of
school. Both programs had been an-
nounced previously by Bush, but he
had not specified their levels of
The administration said the
money for streamlining would come
from the $18 billion currently being
spent on some 60 job training pro-
grams administered by seven gov-
ernment agencies.
Bush also proposed spending up
to $3.5 million for demonstration
projects for youth apprenticeship
programs in six states: California,
Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Oregon and

Yeltsin's right-hand man, State Secretary Gennady Burbulis, told
Lawmakers will have a chance to change their minds and amend the
document today.
Yeltsin had been at an impasse with the Congress since the legislative
body opened April 6 in the Grand Kremlin Palace.
The declaration was approved without debate at the climax of a second

The margin of victory was extremely narrow, just six votes more than
the 524 needed for a majority of the 1,046 lawmakers.
Passage of the declaration came after Treasury Secretary Nicholas
Brady told reporters in Moscow the Congress was jeopardizing a $24 bil-
lion aid package by taking "steps backwards in ... world confidence."

According to an AAP news re-
lease, Judge Hackett asserted the
importance of copyright laws during
the hearing and stated that the case
involved "clear misappropriation" of
these laws.
Coordinated by the AAP, the
lawsuit was filed on February 27 and
pointed to six specific instances of
infringement by Michigan
Document Services. The case is part
of a broad copyright enforcement
program initiated by the AAP on be-
half of its member publishing
"A substantial amount of creative
energy, time and resources goes into
the publication of books and other
copyrighted works. Strong copyright
protection is an essential component
of the creative publishing process
and this Association will continue its
efforts to defend and strengthen this
protection," said AAP President
Nicholas Veliotes in the news

Kurt Koenig, Vice President of
Corporate Administration for
Kinko's Copy Centers, was pleased
by the AAP's action against copy-
right violations.
"The AAP's active enforcement
of the copyright law now means that
Kinko's and other copy centers will
all be playing on a level field. The
AAP and the publishing community
have made their position clear, and it
appears that those who fail to follow
the law will continue to find them-
selves the target of the AAP's en-
forcement campaign," Koenig said
in the release.
Representatives from Michigan
Document Services could not be
reached for comment at press time.
Some University students were
unaware that a lawsuit has been filed
against Michigan Document
Services. Others said the store was
necessary for buying coursepacks.
"I went in there. I bought my
coursepack, and I left. It didn't mat-
ter to me. I had to have the coursep-
ack," LSA first-year student Kristie
Drake said.
