more. Restaurants that seat 101-150
must provide six smoke-free tables
and in larger restaurants that seat
150 or more, the minimal number of
non-smoking tables is nine, said
Tracy Ross-Attles, regional director
of the American Lung Association.
Attles said one of the task force
goals is to change the state mandate
to increase the availability of non-
According to a study conducted
by Action on Smoke and Health
(ASH), food servers - who are
subjected to a large quantity of sec-
ond-hand smoke - are four times
more likely to die from lung cancer
then any other profession.
"Change is hard. Restaurants try
to bring in the argument that they
lose business," Attles said.
Task force member Robert Gunn
said other cities in Michigan, such as
East Lansing and Marquette, have
similar smoking ordinances.
Gunn stressed that the council
needs to address the ordinance as a
public health measure.
"Michigan has the second highest
percentage of smokers, after Ken-
tucky, and the rates have been in-
creasing," Gunn said.
The 11-member task force is
made up of Ann Arbor citizens who
are concerned with placing more re-
strictions on smokers, representa-
tives from county health associa-
tions, local restaurants, off-campus
housing and the Chamber of
While members of the task force
are all working toward the same
goal, there is dissension about how
to apply the ordinance to private
Fred Gruber, a rental housing
provider and member of the task
force, has proposed that the council
establish a list of rental apartments
that would be designated for non-
smokers. This list would be given to
the City Clerk, Chamber of Com-
merce and to the University Housing
But task force member and tenant
David Gurk said he opposes Gruber.
Gurk proposed instead to have 50
percent of all rental buildings set
aside for non-smokers.
"My biggest problem with this, is
that now I would be responsible for
having the authority to enforce it,"
Meade said he does not know
how the council will react to the or-
dinance, especially since three or
four members are smokers.
Bob Eckstein (D-5th Ward), a
smoker, said he supports the idea of

First lady chosen to
head task force on
national health care
NEW YORK (AP) - Hillary
Rodham Clinton got a quick start
yesterday on her job heading her
husband's health care task force,
pursuing support on Capitol Hill
within hours of the appointment and
seeking advice from award-winning
health care experts.
She also wowed New York
school kids, one of whom declared
she was pretty "and I think she's
Mrs. Clinton picked up a com-
munity service award on her first trip
outside Washington as first lady, and
used the occasion to question fellow
winners whose projects involve
health care for children.
The Lewis Hine Award was for
her service to children over the
President Clinton appointed his
wife, a former corporate lawyer, to
lead the task force on one of the
most important issues of his presi-
dency, saying Monday that she was
"a first lady of many talents."
Prodded for specifics, she said
her job will be "to perform the func-
tion that he outlined yesterday (and)
to come up with - by working and
coordinating with a lot of people -
his health care proposal that he will
present to Congress in May."
Although reluctant to talk pub-
licly about her new role, officials
said Mrs. Clinton called several
members of Congress in the first 24
hours on the job. The conversations
were general, part of an initial effort
"to reach out to people," said an of-
ficial familiar with the situation.
The official believed some of the
calls were made from New York.
Sen. Donald Riegle (D-Mich.) said
he got a phone call from Mrs. Clin-
ton late Monday.
While her husband was governor
of Arkansas, Mrs. Clinton chaired an
Education Standards Committee that
played a leading role in pushing
through school reforms. She also
chaired a state panel on rural health
problems and was an active board
member of the Arkansas Children's
For her first trip since the inaugu-
ration, Mrs. Clinton chose to forgo
the usual government jet generally
used by first ladies and took a com-
mercial flight to New York.
"She just wanted to fly commer-
cial," said her spokesperson, Lisa
Mrs. Clinton said she met infor-
mally in Manhattan with four Hine
health care winners to "learn more
about the programs, why they've
been singled out, get their advice
about what they think will work."
Caputo said the one-hour conver-
sation got very specific, with talk
about troublesome regulations and

innovative policies. "It put a lens on
some of the most fundamental prob-
lems that exist in the way health care
is funded through their experiences
as physicians and leaders" in the
health care field, Caputo said.
Mrs. Clinton told a small crowd
on the top floor of the Chemical
Bank building that she and her hus-
band would dedicate the president's
term to improving the lives of Amer-
"But no matter how much work
we do; from the White House to the
courthouse, up and down every
street, in every large city, in every
small town, what children need more
than anything else are adults who
care about them, who love them,
who teach them and who are willing
to stand up and fight for them
against a world that is often cruel
and unfair," she said.
During the trip, Mrs. Clinton

"Tonight, I am sending a signal
clear and strong across the state and
across the nation: the policies and
practices of the past that made job
providers feel unwelcome and un-
wanted are over," he said.
Engler called education a vital
part of his vision for a new genera-
tion of jobs.
Twice he mentioned that state aid
to education has grown while he has
been in office, despite tight budgets.
The 48 percent increase in state
spending the last two years brought
the total tab for education to more
than $9 billion per year, or more
than $5,300 per child.
"Regardless of our differences,
we all agree on one thing: We must
get more for our money. For all we
spend, our schools must do better,"
Engler reaffirmed his commit-
ment to expanding parents' choice of
schools for their children.

loads cargo ships. She described
him as a man who "did not have a
history but was a small event in
someone else's life."
Her sensuous imagery, which
flows through all her work, reflects
Kincaids' Caribbean roots. In the
piece she read aloud, Kincaid de-
scribed a woman who, in caressing
her lover's body, could smell the
burdens of his day's labor - the
sacks of curry, onion, flour and
sugar that he had been unloading
under the Caribbean sun.
Kincaid began writing as a
teenager in Antigua, showing her
work only to neighbors. At age 17,
she left the Caribbean island and
moved to New York City.
Her stead in New York began as
a nanny. Eventually, because of
what she ascribes as fortunate ac-
quaintances rather than her own lit-
erary talent, Kincaid began writing
for the "New Yorker" magazine.
She said the "New Yorker" ex-
perience provided her an oppor-
tunity to realize her potential as a
writer and have the merit of her
prose recognized by others.
Kincaid's work includes: "At
the Bottom of the River," "Annie
John," "A Small Place," and
