ENROLLMENT
Continued from page 1
of color who teach at the U-M in or-
der to create a comfortable atmo-
sphere for students of color.
She said she feels the university
needs to educate all students by im-
mediately implementing more pro-
ductive programs dealing with race
relations.
Many minority students said they
feel that the university should ex-
pand its curriculum to include more
classes and programs dealing with
issues of understanding minorities
and their cultures.
Liem said, "I think (the adminis-
trators) are interested in implement-
ing programs, but there is a problem
in funding."
He also said that the U-M should
make it a priority to expand the cur-
riculum of minority studies, citing
the lack of a program for Native
American studies.
LSA senior Al Chan, a
UMAASC member, said that al-
though enrollment of minority un-
dergraduates has increased, a four-

year progress report on Asian
Americans said minority enrollment
is not nearly as high in many profes-
sional schools.
"There is not a program for stu-
dents to concentrate on minority
studies," Chan said. "There are only
a few classes offered for students to
take."
Although Muhammad Mamdani,.
president of the Indian American
Student Association (IASA), said he
is pleased with increasing minority
student enrollment, he feels there is
too much emphasis put on minority
status.
"I think the U-M is a great school
and admission should be strictly fo-
cused on merit," he said.
"They should consider it, but it
should not be a deciding factor," he
added. "I think they should only
make exceptions in cases of poor
backgrounds of educational, experi-
ence."
Mamdani said increases in mi-
nority enrollment improves the at-
mosphere for minority students on
campus, since minority students like
to see more minority students.

THEATRE
Continued from page 1
such a need.
Similarly, the theatre claims ex-
emption from Title III of the
Americans with Disabilities Act of
1990 (ADA) because compliance
would cause "undue hardship." Title
III states that public accommoda-
tions, such as movie theatres, must
be equally accessible to all persons,
but only if accessibility is "readily
achievable" and does not impose
"undue (financial) hardship" on the
proprietors.
"Since they're doing this big pro-
ject of remodeling now, they should
have made it accessible," said LSA
junior Melissa Hafeli, who has diffi-
culty walking as a result of Juvenile
Rheumatoid Arthritis.
The Barrier Free Design Board,
which has final authority over
waiver requests, agreed in 1989 that
part of the 1942 structure is beyond
renovation and therefore granted the
State Theatre a permanent exception
from the part of the code that re-
quires equal seating access in public
auditoriums.
Since the theatre's two auditori-
ums' aisles are only 3-feet-6 wide,

too narrow for wheelchair use, this
provision would be impossible to
meet.
However, the board only granted
the theatre a three-year exception on
the bathroom and interior layout
codes. The decision was predicated
on the claim that Hogarth
Management would use the time to
make the theatre more accessible
and find a tenant.
Hogarth failed to find a tenant in
that time, and the renovations were
not made. Hogarth Management ap-
plied for another set of exceptions
January 24 of this year, again citing
cost. This time, the company asked
for a five-year exception, to
"coincide with" the five-year lease
term being sought.
However, this request did not in-
clude the earlier plan for renovation,
and instead stated the reasons an el-
evator would not be installed any-
time soon.
Hogarth's request was approved
by "final order" of the Barrier Free
Design Board June 5, giving the
State Theatre five years to comply
with the laws.
Hewitt did not return calls regard-
ing questions about the theatre's
waivers.

BASHING
Continued from page 1
Department (AAPD) will not
begin to monitor the number of
anti-gay bias crimes until 1994.
The department is in the process
of restructuring its crime-record-
ing methods.
Fear of reporting attacks
Additionally, NGLTF esti-
mates that, because gays and
lesbians often fear the repercus-
sions associated with reporting
gay bashings, its statistics repre-
sent fewer than half of the violent
attacks that occur, spokesperson
Martin Herrah said.
In Detroit, the 66 lesbians,
gay men and bisexuals who re-
sponded to a 1991 Triangle
Foundation survey indicated that
only 19.8 percent of the 106 gay
bashing incidents revealed in the
survey - including 7 murders, 8
rapes, 16 aggravated assaults and
other anti-gay bias hate crimes -
were reported to the police.
"People have to come out to
report," said Jim Toy, co-coordi-
nator of the U-M Lesbian Gay
Male Programs Office
(LGMPO). Because most civil
rights laws do not protect people
on the basis of sexual orientation,
he added, civil justice is not
worth the cost of openly coming
out for many homosexuals.
"There is no civil rights
statute that makes it illegal to
discriminate on the basis of sex-
ual orientation," said David
Sobelsohn, committee counsel
for the Michigan Statehouse
Judiciary Committee.
The Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights
Act - which protects the rights
of women, people with disabili-
ties and people of various ethnic
backgrounds in housing, em-
ployment and admissions deci-
sions - glaringly omits civil
rights protection for homosexu-
als, he said.
The judiciary committee had
included sexual orientation when
passing the civil rights bill in
1983, Sobelsohn said, but the
wording was removed in the
Senate.
Homosexuals can legally be
fired, thrown out of their apart-
ments, kept out of the military
and denied the right to adopt
children.
Problems with reporting
Additionally, Toy said, police
agencies are often more homo-
phobic than the people who stand
outside the Nectarine Ballroom
Hate crimes and violence
against gay men, lesbians,
and bisexuals have risen 161
percent during the last five
years according to victim
service agencies in five
metropolitan areas.

on "Boys Night Out" waiting to
harass people as they leave.
"Policekhave a real problem
with 'freaks' in this town," said
U-M alumnae Akasha Fluegge.
"If you get assaulted outside the
Nectarine, the police often don't
bother to show up.
Fluegge said although she al-
leged a physical assault to AAPD
last April, the man who she said
broke her car window and struck
her friend, was charged only with
destruction of property, a
misdemeanor.
She also said police discour-
aged her friend from seeking
medical attention.
"(The police officer) called
me that night," Fluegge said.
"She went on and on about (the
man) being a nice boy. 'Now he
understood,' she said. She said
assault is a felony, and she didn't
want to ruin his career ... But all
he learned is how to get away
with ethnic intimidation."
When contacted by phone last
week, the officer vehemently de-
nied making such statements. She
refused further comment based
.on the fact that she is no longer
associated with the case.
However, AAPD Detective
David Burke - who investigated
the incident - said the depart-
ment handles all cases in the
same manner.
"It doesn't matter to me if
you're a lesbian," he said. "It
makes no difference in terms of
how I handle the case. I do my
job. I don't judge people."
Burke said the women were
most likely harassed because of
the way they were dressed.
"It's not unusual for people to
screw around with people that are
dressed differently," he said.
The man who broke the car
window, Burke said, was charged
with a $200 misdemeanor fine
and was required to do commu-
nity service work.
She said that she is discour-
aged that she cannot count on
police protection for safety.
"Being a lesbian," Fluegge
said, "you are absolutely without
the protection of men. I don't
want to need the protection of
men, but it is a very vulnerable
position to be in."
Herrah added, "Heterosexuals
have no idea of the daily terror
created for lesbians and gay men
by people just like themselves."
Fluegge said the man has not
paid the insurance premium for
the broken window, adding that
she is dissatisfied with the police.
HARASSMENT
Continued from page 1
said although people tend to be
more open-minded, a great deal
of subtle and overt discrimination
exists.
"It's safer here in the sense
that people in college towns are
aware that gays and lesbians exist
and won't have such a gut reac-
tion to them," she said."It's more
dangerous that you can lose your
house or your job."
Psychology Prof. David
Ostrow agreed. "You don't have
to go too deep into the psyche to
know that homophobia is basi-
cally rampant on this campus,"
he said.
