ENACT
to recycle
telephone
directories
by Gwen Shaffer
Daily Environment Reporter
An old phone book could keep
animals warm this winter.
This is because animal bedding
is just one of the many items made
from recycled telephone
directories.
Environmental Action mem-
bers attempted to raise awareness
of the U-M's phone book recy-
cling campaign by placing a stack
of phone books on the Diag and
answering questions about recy-
cling yesterday.
More than 27,000 new city di-
rectories are being delivered to
campus this week, in addition to
the 10,000 student directories that
have been distributed. Combined,
this adds up to a stack of phone
books nearly one mile high.
Assuming an old phone book is
discarded for every new one de-
livered, the U-M gets rid of nearly
40 tons of phone directories every
year.
Because this waste would oc-
cupy about 132 cubic yards of
landfill space, the university's
Plant Grounds and Waste
Management Department is col-
lecting phone books for recycling
during the first three weeks of
November. The directories may be
dropped off at most loading docks
in U-M buildings.
Phone books cannot generally

vie for v
assembl
by Robin Litwin
Daily MSA Reporter

Second-year Inteflex student Christa Williams and first-year Natural Resources student Julie Jarvis promote
phone book recycling on the Diag yesterday.

Thirty-seven students have de-
clared their candidacy in the
Michigan Student Assembly's
November elections and will vie for
the 23 open assembly seats.
LSA junior Adam Hebert, who is
running as an Independent, said he
chose to run for an assembly seat
because he wants to increase the as-
sembly's profile among students.
"There is a lot of student apathy
towards the whole thing," Hebert
said. "If something constructive was
done after people were elected, and
students knew where their MSA dol-
lars were going, then that would in-
crease student awareness - which is
something that I would like to do."
LSA junior Jeffrey Alexander, a
Progressive Party (PP) candidate,
agreed.
"I see what MSA accomplishes,
and they have a negligible political
influence on campus. Regents and
students don't pay any attention to
them," Alexander said.
LSA junior Timothy Morales is
running for an assembly seat with
the Conservative Coalition (CC) de-
spite a failed attempt last year.
"I ran last year, and I'm running
now because a lot of issues are being
ignored. The assembly spends too
much time on issues that don't relate
to students," Morales said.
LSA sophomore Craig
Greenberg, an Independent candi-
date, said he would like to help

r!
aCant
y seats
change the assembly's agenda.
"I think the current system is in-
effective and deals with the wrong
issues," Greenberg said. "All they
is pass sweeping resolutions, afI
amendments that don't do much toi
individual students.
However some of the candidati4
had more personal reasons for rdi4-
ning for MSA.
LSA sophomore Ryan Boeskob,
running with CC, said he wants to*
on the assembly because he thinks it
will help him in a future politica
career.
"I ran this year because I am '
political science major and I plan: to
go into politics. Being on MSA
would give me new experiencein
this field," Boeskool said.
CC candidate Michael Lee, a
Medical School student in 66
Inteflex Program, said hehopes u
affect the assembly's health issues
agenda due to his medical schobo
affiliation.
"I hope to be chair of health Jsr
sues and improve or at least targel
University Health Services," Le
said.
Second-year Rackham graduth
student Mercedes Rubio, who'i)
running with the Progressive Patty,
said she hopes to bring minorily
concerns to the assembly.
"I thought I could bring in a diE-
ferent perspective because I am; .i
Mexican American. I could showii
not just Black and white," Ruaio
said.

be recycled with regular newspa-
per because their glue bindings
and covers contaminate the recy-
cling process. However, when
large quantities of books are dis-
carded at the same time, a special
collection is possible, said Erica
Spiegal, special projects coordina-
tor for Plant Grounds and Waste
Management.
"This year arrangements were
made - in cooperation with the
City of Ann Arbor - to have a re-
cycling processor separate the
phone books from newspapers,
allowing the university to collect

both materials together," Spiegal
said.
Mixing the two materials to-
gether greatly decreases the haul-
ing time and cost of the collection,
she added.
Once the phone books arrive at
the city's processing center, they
will be manually sorted with
newspapers and dumped in a paper
baler. From there, the books will
be shipped to a Grand Rapids-
based company that manufacturers
the phone books into new prod-
ucts, including cellulose wall insu-
lation, hydro-seeding mulch, and

animal bedding.
Ameritech Publishing Inc.,
publishers of the city directory,
said concern over shrinking land-
fill space and a need to make
phone books more easily recy-
clable led them to change the
books' design in 1989.
"We switched the glue used for
binding from a synthetic base to a
water-soluble base, which is more
acceptable to paper recycling
mills," said Claudette Holcomb, of
Ameritech corporate communica-
tions.

Kilbourne to speak on alcohol, media

by Megan Lardner
Daily Staff Reporter
U-M students who attend Dr.
Jean Kilbourne's lecture on advertis-
ing Sunday night may get a sobering
course in alcoholism.
Kilbourne, a frequent guest on
shows such as "Oprah Winfrey,"
"20/20" and "Donahue," will speak
Sunday at 8 p.m. in the MLB, Aud.
3. In past U-M lectures, she has
packed the auditorium.

The program, called, "Under the.
Influence: The Pushing of
Alcoholism Via Advertising," will
include films narrated by Kilbourne,
as well as a speech by the Wellesley
College visiting professor on the is-
sue of student alcohol use.
Kilbourne will also speak about
media censorship on behalf of the
alcohol industry, and address issues
concerning alcohol abuse among
college students, women, minorities

and the children of alcoholics.
In addition to her work on alco-
holism, Kilbourne is involved in ac-
tivism against the exploitation of
women through advertising.
Kilbourne, who has received nu-
merous awards including the
Woman of the Year award from the
National Organization for Women,
has lectured to students at hundreds
of colleges and universities nation-
wide.

State Senate
approves
parental
consent bill
LANSING, Mich. (AP) -
Legislation to revive a law requiring
a minor to have parental consent for
an abortion won overwhelming ap-
proval yesterday in the Senate and
went to Gov. John Engler for his
signature.
The Senate passed the bill 26-8
over the objections of some
Democrats. They argued it leaves
few protections for young women
who are victims of rape or incest.
The bill passed the House in
September.
The bill will restore a law struck
down by Kalamazoo County Circuit
Judge Philip Schaefer on Aug. 5.
The governor is expected to sign it.
The original law required girls 17
and younger to have a parent's con-
sent for an abortion or seek a waiver
from a probate judge.
The new measure expands the
types of emergencies in which
parental consent or a judicial waiver
isn't needed.
