On weekend nights this semester, visitors to the
Michigan Union will be greeted by student door hosts
- not housing security guards.
The Union's access policy requires people entering
the facility after 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday to show U-M identification.
Only students, faculty, staff members and alumni are
permitted access to the building. Members of these eli-
gible parties may bring two guests each. Larger groups
are allowed with advanced arrangement.
When this policy was implemented last fall, housing'
department personnel were responsible for maintaining
security and checking for IDs.
However, this year, the U-M Department of Public
Safety (DPS) has hired a number of students as special
events interns to check IDs at the doors.
"It would present a more friendly atmosphere if stu-
dents were the greeters at the door," said DPS Lt.
The U-M established the access policy to alleviate
violence and overcrowding in the Union, said Frank
Cianciola, associate dean of students.
"It was put in place to ensure that we have a safe
place for our primary constituency," Cianciola said.
"We felt a need to restrict access," added John
Brockett, associate director of the Union. "One of the
things that was a driving factor was that so many activi-
ties happen here."
Student reaction to the policy has been mixed.
Jon Heft, a graduate student and door host, defined
the policy as a "new experiment to try and solve some
of the problems associated with the Union."
Rob Rector, a U-M graduate who encountered diffi-
culty entering the Union without an ID, said he dislikes
"We're alumni and now we're considered guests.
This is ludicrous," he said.
But employees of the restaurants and stores in the

Bush battles Clinton over environment during west coast jaunt
COLVILLE, Wash. (AP) -
President Bush battled Democrat
Bill Clinton for votes in the Pacific
Northwest yesterday, declaring that
environmental laws should be
changed to "make people more
important than owls."
Bush vowed not to sign an
extension of the Endangered Species
Act unless it's rewritten to give more
emphasis to economic priorities and
Clinton maintained that he was
the candidate who could best
promote economic development
while at the same time preserving

Bush told a cheering audience at
a lumber company near the
Canadian border that the balance
between the environment and jobs
has been lost.
"It is time to make people more
important than owls," he said. "It's
time to put the mills back to work."
Bush delivered his promise on a
trip through timber- and spotted-owl
country of Washington and Oregon,
'The Endangered Species Act was intended as a
shield for species against the effects of major
construction projects like highways and dams.'

He has called for a summit on the

derided as "false hope." "No more

said. "My opponent will not fight to

Thousands of timber workers have

Clinton maintains that the
Republicans are asking voters to
make a false choice between jobs

"Bush gave us neither. We think
you can have both," said Bruce
Reed, one of Clinton's domestic
policy advisers. "The choice is
between George Bush and jobs."
