Yeltzer said most patrons thought it
was funny and wanted to see the ad,
but he did receive some phone calls
protesting the flyer.
"It was upsetting the women, so
we took it down," Yeltzer said.
Six days after the article was
printed, The Pit placed a full-page
ad in The Lantern apologizing for
the incident.
The ad portrays a character re-
sembling Bart Simpson writing, "I
will not degrade women," on a
blackboard. Below it reads, "Only
4,479 more to go."

After reading the apology,
Chandler said she wanted to thank
Pit management.
"They have to realize in order to
keep women as customers they have
to not degrade us. If there's any
word they should equate us with it
should be goddess," she said.
Yeltzer said the ad effectively
communicated his message.
"I thought it was kind of a cute
way to apologize," he said.
University English Prof. Martha
Vicinus said, "My general larger
view of these kinds of things is -
it's like going after a symbol rather
than the larger issues that seem
much more difficult to solve.

John Murphy - a faculty mem-
ber on the UT publications commit-
tee, the body that voted to run the ad
- said he believes the ideas are
foolish and will be refuted by intel-
ligent people.
"If someone wants to say the
world is flat, let them take out an
advertisement," he said. "If someone
,wants to say something as ridiculous
as the Holocaust didn't occur, let
Murphy was the one faculty
board member, along with five UT
students, who voted to run the ad.
The board has ultimate jurisdiction
over all material printed in the Daily
Murphy said failing to print the
ad would be a form of censorship.
"It is a very dangerous incursion on
the reader's rights," he said, adding
that it is not the function of the
newspaper or the board to decide
what is acceptable for the reader to
But Baker said the board's ac-
tions allow outright anti-Semitism.
"They are willing to support the
rights of a bunch of Nazis over the
rights of members of the Jewish
community," he said.
Some students at the Daily Texan
said they did not wish to run the ad,

but were required to in response to
the board's decision. The newspa-
per's Editor in Chief Geoff Henley,
said he regrets the ad's appearance.
"It is misleading. An ad of such
sensitive nature can't be that way
and it is offensive," he said.
Faculty board member Eli Cox
said he voted not to print the ad be-
cause the board policy is to reject all
ads that involve attacks of a per-
sonal, racial or religious nature.
But Murphy said he is sure stu-
dents can determine truth from lies.
"I have a lot of confidence with the
students' ability to identify Bradley
Smith's distortions and half-truths
for what they are, which is just
garbage," he said.
Smith said revisionists will con-
tinue to challenge historical docu-
mentation of the Holocaust as un-
true. "Every year a half a million
tourists in Auschwitz are being lied
to," he said.
"I feel that students have the right
to read the literature of people who
are writing radical, dissenting views
about alleged historical events," he
Baker said nothing can excuse
the printing of the ad and the anti-
Semitic feelings it encourages.
"The Jewish community is very
upset about it and I think quite right-
fully so," Baker said. "For (the ad-
vocators of the ad), what does it

for Children won this year's award.
In 1991, a group of medical students
concerned with the lack of compas-
sionate instruction in the first two
years of medical school began this
program. The group focuses on the
lack of health-care services available
to children in low-income families.
In January, the group held a one-
day conference, which Medstart
member Norman Harrison said grew
to include students from many of the
University's graduate programs.
Medstart was chosen over five
other student groups - University
Activities Center, Greek Week
Steering Committee, Reflections of
Croatia, and Project SERVE.
Maureen Hartford, vice president
for student affairs, said applicants
were judged using four criteria: team
initiative and enterprise, enhance-
ment of the campus/community en-
vironment, achievement of goals

through cooperative effort, and
recognition of individual contribu-
tions to the group.

The posters, designed by the
non-partisan staff, will only an-
nounce that MSA elections a, be-

campaign posters, they are solely
intended to encourage students to
vote and will not in any way en-
dorse or mention any specific
candidates or parties.
A statement released by the
Michigan Party said, "at least
1,065 posters would be posted by
the various candidates and parties,
saving the Elections Staff consid-
erable time."
The Michigan Party made its
proposal after a similar plan was
submitted by the Progressives.
However, the earlier alternative
called for each individual candi-
date and party to design its own
Select MSA representatives de-
cided to use the Michigan Party's
proposal, and Elections Staff
members are planning to distribute
fliers to each candidate.
The Michigan Party's proposal

mandates that:
the Election Staff design and
distribute 15 posters to each can-
the posters only announce
the dates of the election and a
general encouragement to vote;
the posters not endorse,
mention, or support any specific
candidate or party running for of-

position to be taken on any ballot
questions; and,
the Election Staff strongly
encourage all candidates to volun-
tarily participate in this voter
turnout drive by putting up at least
their allotment of posters in addi-
tion their own campaign fliers.
Election director Allison Insley
said the success of the drive de-
pends on candidate participation.
"They can only help them-
selves by doing it," she said.
Greenberg added, "We are all
working toward one goal to in-
crease student participation. The

"With more student input into
MSA from all different parts of
the University, we can achieve our
goal of making MSA an effective
student government, not an
ideological battleground,"

Brent House said, "We are trying
to bring MSA back to campus

House echoed other

budget as a possible solution.
