Blues and Jazz Fest makes
comeback in September

Adolescent sexual
assault lifts college

by Annette Petruso
Twenty years ago, Ann Arbor
had an event. A real music festival,
on par with any international
concert, could be found near campus
on the Otis Spann Memorial Field
(now part of Huron High School). Its
title was the Ann Arbor Blues and
Jazz Festival, taglined "a real good
time," and the shows featured such
legends as Howlin' Wolf, Muddy
Waters, Ray Charles, Ornette
Coleman, BB King, Miles Davis -
just to name a few.
Nineteen years ago, the last Ann
Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival hap-
This year, it's being revived.
Hopefully, this time, it's here to
Peter Andrews, co-promoter of
this year's Festival as well as the
original two, claims, "There's a lot

of great karma attached to the event
from people who were there."
The Blues and Jazz Fest also has
a history before '72.
Andrews explains, "There used to
be a Blues Festival here. John
Fishell ... put on two Blues Festivals
(in '69 and '70) that were beautiful
events on the same field where we

Director at the University, I was
contracted to put concerts on. Then
Vice President Knauss ... said 'Why
don't we revive this event?' It
looked like a pretty nice event.
"I looked into it and said expand
the base to blues and jazz, which no
one had ever done. I see now in fes-
tival magazines there's a few, but
it's still a unique combination.
"Doesn't seem that crazy to me,
the two forms (of music) that
America has given the world ... I
looked into it and put together a

Women ran twice the risk of rape or
attempted rape during their first year
of college if they had been sexually
assaulted as adolescents, suggesting
a not-yet-understood link, says a
study released Sunday.
Researchers also found that the
risk of rape or attempted rape during
adolescence was higher in woinen
who had been exposed to family
violence or sexually victimized as a
However, these childhood
experiences had no direct bearing on
the risk of rape or attempted rape in
the first year of college, said

She said the results suggest that
rapists can sense vulnerable women,
but "what it is that they're cluing in
on, I really don't know....
Obviously, these women aren't
walking around wearing a sign that
says 'Assault me,"' she said in an,
She also stressed that her results
do not mean that women ar"
responsible for being raped.
Rape was defined in the study
along legal lines, including sex
coerced through physical force,
alcohol, drugs or threat of force, and
sexual acts such as anal or oral
intercourse with force or threats of
force, she said.

believed it violated Constitutional
standards of free speech. This stance
was then adopted by MSA.
Students have complained they
had no input into the various drafts
being considered to replace the in-
terim policy.
To address these concerns,
Hartford met this past spring with;;
various U-M organizations, includ-2
ing the SRC, Minority Student
Services, the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs,
and the Center for Education of
Women. Hartford said the meetings
were productive in working toward
an alternative to the code.
But many in the university com-
munity are still questioning the
greater implications of Supreme
Court decision.
LSA senior Jewel Shim said she
felt the ruling was ominous.
"People can take this further,"*
she said. "Burning crosses can be
put under arson or trespassing but
the motivation behind it is racial and
Graduate student and Baker-
Mandela Center boardmember
Regina Freer said she believes the
Court is accepting and protecting "a
history of racism."
"I think fighting racism on cam-
pus is a far more difficult task be-
cause of this ruling," Freer said.
However, Michigan Student
Assembly Vice President Hunter
Van Valkenburgh said he doubted'
the ruling would affect students.
"The university has a lot of dis-
cretion as to whether something is,"4
punishable or not," Van
Valkenburgh said. "The president's
personal power is a bigger threat
than any code."
LSA senior Steve Anderson also'.
said he believes the ruling would not
change the atmosphere on campus.
"For the most part, people at the
university are more conscious of the
differences between people,"
Anderson said. "There will be a few"
bad apples who don't know how to
be polite but I think that there's"
enough awareness going on at the
university that people know how to
treat others."
Executive Director of University'<
Relations Walter Harrison agreed
with the ruling's general intent.
"The ruling may motivate some

people (into thinking) that all man-
ner of bigotry is condoned and that's
a real worry for me," Harrison said.
"But I believe you fight bad ideasH
with good ideas, and we'll be better
off if we engage the widest,
John Matlock, director of the,
Office of Minority Affairs, said the'
ruling reflects a "concerted undoing"
of gains attained through past civil
rights legislation.
