CLINTON
Continued from page 1
criticized Clinton for pushing re-
gressive taxes and failing to adopt a
state civil rights law.
The candidates may address
these issues face-to-face next
Tuesday in Louisville, Ky., at a de-
bate proposed yesterday by the
Commission on Presidential
Debates. This site was originally
proposed for a vice-presidential de-
bate.
The Commission said it needs
an answer from both campaigns by
noon today.
MSU students had mixed reac-
tions to the cancellation of the de-
bate originally planned on their
campus.
"I was disappointed because I

thought it would be a great opportu-
nity for direct interaction with the
campaign," Clinton supporter Anne
Soffina said.
But some Bush-supporting stu-
dents said it was a wise idea on the
part of the president.
"Younger people tend to be
more liberal and if Bush had come
here it would have been more
detrimental than good," said junior
Laressa Simpkins.
Clinton's attempt to attract the
votes of college students was evi-
dent as he outlined his plan for eco-
nomic revival - called "Putting
People First" - which umbrellas a
number of issues including jobs,
education, and health care.
Some MSU students said they
were impressed with Clinton's
promise to "open doors to college

education to all Americans."
Clinton proposes to provide
higher education- to all citizens
through apprenticeship programs
and government loans repayable by
public service.
"As a college student paying for
my own education, I cannot under-
stand how any student supports
Bush," said junior Nicole
Dobrowolski, adding that she is not
surprised the president avoided de-
bating on a college campus.
Although most students waved
Clinton/Gore signs as they sang the
Spartan fight song, Bush supporters
were not absent from the scene.
"Clinton talks in rhetoric only,"
said sophomore Leanne Wandoff.
"He's sucking in air and blowing
right back out the issues without
ever inhaling them."

And Republicans did not pass up
the opportunity to express their
opinions about Clinton at the rally.
As soon as the governor finished
speaking, National GOP Chairman
Rich Bond introduced a biting
seven-minute video to reporters ti-
tled, "The Great Debate: Clinton vs.
Clinton" - which showed Clinton
making contradictory statements on
various issues such as a litmus test
for U.S. Supreme Court Justices
and a middle-class tax cut.
The cancellation of the debate at
MSU opened thousands of students'
eyes to issues of the race and the
importance of their votes.
"The rally was certainly worth-
while," said Erik Stabnov, a volun-
teer for Rock the Vote - a national
organization encouraging voter
registration.

Senate approves bill
to regulate cable TV

VOTE
Continued from page 1
State law requires that all voters
for the Nov. 3 election are registered
by 5 p.m. Oct. 5. However, this day
only marks the end of phase one for
Just Vote.
Just Vote will work to educate
students not only about the contro-
versial presidential election, but also
about the local races and proposals
that students will find on the ballot
this fall.
"We focus in also on regents,
congressional seats, and county of-
fices" said Deb Finkelstein, an LSA
senior.

The organization feels its biggest
obstacle will be the apparent student
apathy towards voting.
"If you give students a means to
act, they will do it ... We're trying
to dispel a mystery ... but we're not
going to reach that goal unless peo-
ple know what we want to do,"
Schaefer said.
"Because so few people vote, it
makes yours all the more powerful
... Don't let someone else chose for
you," Berman said.
Schaefer said she feels politi-
cians ignore the concerns of stu-
dents because so few young people
vote.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Senate voted 74-25 yesterday to
regulate cable television, sending a
bill to the White House that
responds to consumer complaints
about rapid price increases by cable
operators.
President Bush says he'll veto it
because it puts "burdensome" regu-
lations on the industry that would
hurt consumers.
The measure requires the Federal
Communications Commission to
determine reasonable rates for min-
imal cable service and restrict costs
on the equipment consumers need to
operate cable television, like remote
control devices.
It also contains provisions de-
'Consumers are sick
and tired of getting
soaked by big cable
companies.'
- Sen. Al Gore
signed to enhance competition in lo-
cal communities between existing
cable companies and others that
could provide a similar kind of ex-
panded television programming.
The strength of the vote shows
the Senate can do its part to make
the bill law despite the president.
Voting for the legislation were 50
Democrats and 24 Republicans.
Seven Democrats and 18
Republicans voted against it.
Sen. John Danforth, R-Mo., one
of the bill's sponsors, said he hoped
Bush would not veto the bill.
"There are a number of
Republican senators who would like
to support the president, but have a
record supporting this. It's very hard

to ask them to go back and change
positions," Danforth said. He said
some change in circumstances would
be necessary to justify sustaining a
veto.
The House approved the bill 280-
128 last Thursday and supporters
there were confident they also could
muster the necessary votes to over-
ride a veto.
A two-thirds majority of those
voting is needed in each chamber to
enact a law against a president's
wishes.
Democratic presidential con-
tender Sen. Al Gore of Tennessee,
one of the bill's original co-spon-
sors, came off the campaign trail to
cast his vote in favor of the measure.
"Consumers are sick and tired of
getting soaked by big cable compa-
nies," Gore said. "This legislation
will force cable companies to do
what they so far have refused - an-
swer to their customers and compete
in a market that for too long has
been a monopoly."
Gore campaign spokeswoman
Marla Romash said, "George Bush
vetoes this bill at his own peril.
"For both Bill Clinton and Al
Gore, the choice is clear: you stand
with the consumer. It's not so clear
with George Bush," she said.
The cable television industry has
lobbied hard against the measure, us-
ing media advertising and direct
mail to try to persuade consumers
that regulation would cause rates to
go up, not down.
A few days ago, Hollywood stu-
dio executives also started an ag-
gressive attack on the measure.
They wanted a provision forcing
cable companies to pay royalties for
cable delivery of broadcast pro-
gramming created in Hollywood.

CHALLENGES
Continued from page 1
experience to use in running the
Educational Opportunity for Non-
traditional Students (EONS) pro-
gram, which focuses on older non-
students with poor academic records.
Hasley said the program looks for
maturity and determination in the
candidates when selecting
participants.
"The candidates have done some
amazingly successful things in their
lives - written a book or a paper
that's been published," she said.
"We put together an admissions file
based on recommendations and sup-
plemental testing and predict their
academic success."
The 10-year-old EONS program
admits two or three students a term.
These students report to the EONS
committee, which monitors their
success.
William Sowa, an electrical engi-
neering sophomore, came to the U-
M through EONS 10 years after
graduating from high school.
"Back in the '40s and '50s a high
school degree got you a good job,"
he said. "Now a master's degree gets
you a good job."
"No matter how old you are, if
you want to increase your opportu-
nity, you need a college education,"
he said.

Pat Soellner-Younce, a group
coordinator for the Center of the
Education of Women, said about
half the non-traditional students she
works with come back to school to
improve their credentials.
"The other half follow a pursuit
that they have always wanted to ac-
complish in their lives," Soellner-
Younce said.
Soellner-Younce leads a group
meeting called "Connections" for
approximately 20 non-traditional
undergraduate women twice a
month.
"It's a real diversified group,"
Soellner-Younce said. "Women can
bring their own issues to the group to
get feedback and support.
"A lot of the frustrations of the
women have to do with scarcity,"
she said. "When they look around
the classroom, they're lucky if they
find one other non-traditional stu-
dent. It is not as easy for them to
turn to a friend and ask, 'How do I
get an override?'
"We're there for them as an
emotionally supportive group.
Members ask, 'Is it OK that I'm do-
ing this? Am I hurting my kids?' We
help with the financial crises that
always come up during the year."
"Many of the group have ex-
pressed a dissatisfaction with the
way the University reaches out to
them. They're thankful we exist."
