POLICY
Continued from page 1
hire DPS security officers to
monitor the event.
At a meeting Friday between
MAC and U-M administrators,
MAC proposed the definition of a
party be eliminated and that the pol-
icy be changed to include all social
events.
The Office of the Dean of
Students solicited input from repre-
sentatives from many student groups
when it drafted the party guidelines
in September. However, there were
no representatives from Asian
American, Latino, or Native
American student organizations in-
volved in those discussions, Han
said.
"I think there are certain prob-
lems that minority organizations feel
that others don't and that others ne-
glected when drafting the policy,"
Han said.
MAC proposed other changes in
the policy, including using wrist-
bands instead of hand stamping for
readmittance to social events, limit-
ing the responsibility of the student
group to the immediate vicinity of
the event, and initiating a Social
Events Task Force.
Commission members said they
would like representatives of the
administration, security, and student
groups to establish uniform stan-
dards of behavior for DPS officers
when monitoring events. In addition,

they requested race-relations training
for the selected DPS officers.
"We want to be assured that the
officers we're hiring would be sen-
sitive to that particular student
organization," Han said.
U-M administrators said they
hope to implement the interim policy
in order to "eliminate need for Union
Access Policy."
The commission asked adminis-
trators to suspend the policy or give
a specific date when the policy will
become ineffective.
Associate Dean of Students
Frank Cianciola conceded that
progress has been made in regards to
student conduct around the Union.
He said student groups will be re-
warded for this improvement by be-
ing permitted to fill rooms to the fire
marshal capacity, as opposed to the
current "manageable capacity"
limitation.
Dean of Students Royster Harper
said the administration is constantly
modifying the Union Access Policy
- citing the fact that security offi-
cers have changed from wearing
uniforms to blazers. She added that
her office is open to suggestions
from students, but it is not at the
point where it is ready to repeal the
policy.
"It's not a policy that we love,
either," Harper said.
Discussion on the proposed
changes to the Social Events Policy
will continue at another meeting,
scheduled for next week.

ISSUES
Continued from page 1
"It concerns our freedom of
speech and how liberal this campus
will be," Blacklock said. "I don't
feel that the university should make
these decisions."
Many students said they would
like MSA to make more informa-
tion available about how the
university uses its money.
Fiedrich said, "MSA should be
telling us things and be questioning
'I have not seen
anything that MSA
has done for me
directly, other than
distribute funds.'
- Stewart B/acklock
first-year Engineering
student
regents about where our dollars are
going."
He expressed indignation over
the additional fees the university
adds on to tuition.
"Things like MTS (Michigan
Terminal System) are an extra $100
each term that they add into your
tuition, but they don't tell you what
it's for," Fiedrich stated. "The uni-
versity nickels and dimes you to
death."
Other students were concerned

with the lack of MSA response to
tuition increases.
"They don't ever rally against
tuition increases," said LSA senior
Gina Consolino, adding that student
representatives at other universities
protest increases.
Consolino also said she would
like to see more interaction between
MSA and the administration.
Some students said they feel
MSA is inaccessible.
Fiedrich said, "I don't actively
go looking to see what they are do-
ing, but then again nothing they
have decided on ever filters down
to me.
"I want my voice to be heard by
the regents and the people upstairs.
I'm paying too much money not to
have a say in what goes on at this
university," he added.
Junior Steve Stark, an LSA rep-
resentative on MSA, acknowledged
that many students have no opinion
about MSA issues.
"Most students are ignorant of
MSA," Stark said.
Stark suggested a forum to let
students voice concerns. He said he
would like to start a newsletter with
information about candidates so
students can begin to know their
representatives.
Feedback is important from stu-
dents, Stark added. "Less feedback
from a lot more people would be
better than a lot of feedback from
only a few," he said.

speciifically try to recruit female
canitlidates.
"We try to run the best people
that we can possibly have for MSA.
All of us represent the goals oft all
the students. We're all students
first. I don't pIretenid to support the
view of all men,"I ouse said.
"Student issues concern both men
and women. We don't want to
politiciz.e it as mtcli .'
lS . A Rep. T1 obias /immerman
said that while the Progressive
Party did not intentionally recruit
women, it puts a high priority on a
diverse slate.
T h e lrogressive Party is
en dorsing four men and fi ve
women.
"I'm sure if we ended up with an
all male slate we would've (done
something about that, but I don't
recall any extra-special elfort. It all
seems pretty natural."' Zimmerman
said. "'t'he lProcressive Party is
committedl to diversity on all levels.
both on the assembly and out of it.'
/.immerman also said the atmo-
sphere at MSA ineetings can
alienate women.
"I think that conservatives mIiake
a lot of people feel uncomfort<'h°"
'l'here aire at least three or four peo-

pIe who have said blantantly racist
things," Zimmerman said.
llowever., Budget Priorities
C'omnlnittee C'hair Sejaf Mistry said
that a lt hou g h more men wield
power on the assembly, she has
ne ver beel intimitated at MSA
meeting;s.
"()f course women should be
mrnh more represented< on the as-
sembly. l'here is a great disparity in
power. I munthe only woman com-
mittee chair," Mistry said. "But it's
not a hostile environment that cre-
ates this. I am very conscious at
times of being the only woman, but
I think I' ve built up the respect o'
the asseim bly members. I don't
think they would treat me any dif-
ferent if I was a man. A t least I
would hope they woukdn't.'
Mistry also said the responsibil-
it y of recruiti1C more women alIls
on the parties' shoulders.
"lhe reason that more men aie
on the assembly is because more
men want to do it. It's important to
solicit women to run, and it is the
responsibility of the parties to do
this solicitin," Mistry said.
ISA junior ''racy Robinson, the
only woman on the ('(' ticket, said
it should not make any di'fference
whether a candidate is male or
female.
"it should be students' issues,

CLINTON
Continued from page 1
Dole, who also appeared on "Meet
the Press," cautioned the next presi-
dent "not to try to overload the cir-
cuit" with too much legislation in his
first few months.
Dole said Republicans would try

to cooperate on an economic stimu-
lus package but also would keep a
watchful eye to make sure Clinton's
plan dealt with deficit reduction.
Clinton heads to Washington later
this week for a meeting with biparti-
san leaders of Congress.
Dole said he owed it to
Republicans who don't agree with

Clinton "to at least indicate we're
not going to be patsies and floor
mats and rubber stamps.
"We're going to try to be helpful,
but at the same time, we are a na-
tional party," Dole said, noting the
GOP has a chance to make inroads
in the Senate in 1994 with 22
Democratic seats up for re-election.

residents oppose the hazardous
waste complex mainly because simi-
lar incinerators emit as much as 35()
toxins annually, posing serious
health risks for people living nearby.
In addition, resiCents f'ear a p)-

croundwater conamination and inl-
lions of dollars in clean up fees.
