One of the fundamental principles of this country
is the rights of the accused. Nonetheless, these
rights are conspicuous in their absence from the
proposed student code of conduct.

"I don't think people want to waste
their vote (on Ross Perot) and that's
what it undoubtedly would be."
Clinton didn't mention Perot by
name but lumped him together with
Bush by implication. "Of all the

More than 200 people crowded
into the Ann Arbor Public Library
last night to hear local candidates
battle out the most controversial is-
sues of the upcoming election.
Organized by the local chapter of
the League of Women Voters, the
debate featured election candidates
for the State House of Representa-
tives from the 52nd-55th districts,
and Congressional representatives
from the 8th and 13th districts.
Among the controversial topics dis-
cussed were the faltering state of the
economy, fear of environmental de-
struction, and how government cor-
ruption has cost the public.
Incumbents Kirk Profit (D-Ypsi-
lanti) and William Ford (D-Ypsilanti
Township) participated in the debate.
Ford opened discussion with a
commentary on the relationship be-
tween the new president and the
"We need jobs. And to get jobs,
we need a president who can kick-

Republican candidate Robert

The uses of marijuana as treatment for AIDS pa-
tients has been overshadowed by federal politics, said
an AIDS educator and a U-M researcher.
A year after the federal government abruptly halted
its medical marijuana program, Steven Woods, an
educator with the Mid-West AIDS Prevention Project
(MAPP), characterized the mood of patients and educa-
tors as one of anger due to the Bush administration's
current AIDS policy.
"(The) feeling is that they don't care - about the
disease or those infected," Woods said.
U-M AIDS researcher and psychiatrist Dr. David
Ostrow explained that marijuana acts as an appetite
stimulant, a suppresser of nausea and vomiting, and also
helps AIDS patients relax.
Even when the Department of Health and Human
Services medical marijuana program was in operation,
Ostrow said the government made it difficult for AIDS
