Schwartz said, "I was impressed
with Maureen's willingness to sit
down with us and listen to us during
the redrafting, but there's still more
to be worked out. There are still
ways of making it better than what
has how been proposed."

most familiar with," said Maria del Carmen, director
of the troupe.
The Grupo Gaucho Argentino performed a series
of dances from north and central Argentina.
The northern dances, derived from early Inca
culture, traditionally require women to look down in
modesty as their male partners court them to a
rhythm of Spanish guitars, drums and a guitar made
from an armadillo shell.
The central Argentine dances, indigenous to the
Pampas region of the country, also are courting
U-M students and faculty also performed in two
groups, Los Hijos de Aztlan and Los Jibaritos.
Los Hijos de Azatlan performed Mexican dances
influenced by the Polish and Czechs under the rule
of Maximillian of the Hapsburg Empire.
With a Polka-Western twang, Los Hijos square-
danced to the music, which settled in northern
Mexico near the current U.S. border.
Andrew Perez, coordinator of the event and a
participant in Los Hijos, said the audience ignited
the group's enthusiasm.
Traveling south, the audience explored the sen-
sual rhythms of the Lambada, a native dance of
Brazil that became a fad in international nightclubs
several years ago.
The group, Lambada Motion, formed in an effort
to keep Latino children in the city from becoming
involved in crime and rather involved in something
popular and cultural, said director Jorge Galvez.
"The kids used to be more in the street so we
started doing something. We take those kids out of
drugs," he said.
He noted that the Lambada is an aggressive inti-
mate dance, with the legs of two partners inter-
twined as they move, but his company has made the
dance less risqud because of its young members.

"Even if the whole committee
agreed on what was drafted, it didn't
matter. All three students thought it
was essential for it to come up for a
student vote," Van Houweling said.
Hartford said the administration
is still discussing the idea of a stu-
dent referendum.

The house failed the inspection
and the fraternity was given a list of
things it needed to correct.
The Building Department cited
63 violations and hazardous condi-
tions in an Oct. 16, 1991, letter to
the house's owner, the Alpha Tau
Chapter House Association in
Birmingham, Mich.
The violations included broken
window panes, ceilings and walls in
disrepair, clogged sinks and unse-
cured light fixtures. The major viola-
tion - which still exists - is the
lack of "two independent means of
egress for each floor."
Last November, Chi Phi asked
the city for four variances under
housing code requirements.
The variances would allow the
fraternity to meet minimum safety
standards through alternative mea-

Another reinspection March 30
resulted in 49 additional violations
and instructions for them to comply
with the code.
The inspection found that there
were still broken window panes and
insecure light fixtures. The city cited
14 violations for doors that did not
self close and latch.
By the end of September, the city
took action because there were still
outstanding violations.
Donaldson said the city expects
Chi Phi to complete its renovations
in two weeks. Members of Chi Phi
refused to comment.
