all that well."
Anti-Nazi activists at Saturday's
rally - ranging from the Trotskyist
League to the National Women's
Rights Organizing Coalition
(NWROC) - descended on a barri-
caded City Hall to protest the neo-
Nazi groups.
Protesters used the occasion to
criticize everything from U.N. im-
perialism in Somalia to alleged dis-
crimination against Asian Ameri-
cans by a local bar - O'Sullivan's
Eatery & Pub.
Heather Graham, a spokesperson
for the local chapter of the NWROC,
said counter-demonstrators were
there to "put their fists in the Nazi's
"No free speech for racists," she
said. "We've got to shut them down

and not let them get their message
out by any means necessary."
Later in the afternoon, about 25
members of SS Action - a neo-
Nazi group - parked behind a po-
lice barricade in a rented Ryder truck
at City Hall.
SS Action members, donned in
black with face masks, carrying ba-
tons and swastika-emblazoned
shields, emerged from the truck as
the angry crowd of protesters ig-
nored police blockades. At this
point, a police captain shouted from
the roof of City Hall, asking SS Ac-
tion members to leave.
Standing behind a row of 70 po-
lice officers armed with tear gas and
batons, neo-Nazis withstood a foray
of snowballs, iron bolts and other
potentially dangerous objects for
five minutes before being whisked
away behind a police escort.
In explaining why police asked

SS Action members to leave,
Hoornstra displayed iron bolts that
he said had been thrown at the
"We were afraid that additional
violence would have ensued, had
(SS Action) stayed any longer," he
One anti-Nazi demonstrator was
hit in the leg while attempting to
block the path of the departing truck.
He refused medical treatment saying,
"They'll need medical treatment
when they come back."
"We ran the Nazis out of town,"
said David Blair, an activist for the
Revolutionary Workers League. He
added, "The demonstration was a big
success. We stopped them from
speaking and recruiting members."
Afterward, the counter-demon-
strators marched to the Michigan
Union, proclaiming victory in sti-
fling the Nazi's rally.
AAPD officers had created a
"plan of action" to prevent violence,
said Hoornstra, after receiving in-
formation from the media and "Stop-
the-Nazis," a coalition of groups that
protested the march.

Survey reports benefits to
smokers who quit before 40

by Soma Gupta
Daily Staff Reporter
According to a recent University
study on smoking, people who quit
smoking before they turn 40 may be
at a lower risk of getting lung cancer
than those who quit later.
Michael Halpern, Brenda Wilson,
and Kenneth Warner of the School of
Public Health collaborated in the
study that was completed earlier this
"It appears that age of quitting is
as important to lung cancer risk as
the number of years passed without a
cigarette, and the earlier, the better,"
said Halpern, an assistant research
scientist, in a press release.
According to the study, quitting
before the age of 40 is best.
"We found that 20 years after
having given up smoking, compared
to same-age smokers, ex-smokers
who had quit before the age of 40
had roughly half the risk of dying of

lung cancer of smokers who had not
given it up until they were 55 or
older," Halpern said in the press
Halpern also mentioned that these
results are due to the fact that

and that's just not what the study is
saying," said Richard Francis, first-
year graduate student in the Music
Other smokers remain pes-
simistic about the usefulness of the

thought, "Good, this means I can smoke until
I am 40," and that's just not what the study

younger bodies seem to be able to
repair themselves more efficiently
and there is less damage to repair..
But Halpern added, "Smoking
cessation is beneficial at any age. In
fact, the sooner you quit the less the
likelihood of dying of lung cancer.
In the people that we studied, the
sooner people quit, the closer they
came to the risk levels of a non-

cerned that the study may be mis-

findings for college age students.
"I hope (the study) makes a differ-
ence but, honestly, I don't think it
will," said LSA sophomore Ellen
Krouss. "There's so much research
going on telling us that smoking is
bad for us and yet we continue to do
it anyway. I don't think that one
piece of research is going to change
anyone's mind."
Non-smokers tend to agree.
"Young people in their 20s are
not going to be that concerned about
what the state of their health will be
when they're 50. If people are in-
clined to quit, they'll quit with or
without the study. If people don't
want to quit they'll keep smoking,"
said LSA junior Ellen Thackery.

Mary Lou Antieau, judicial advi-
sor of the statement, said the policy
could not have applied to Morris
since it did not become effective un-
til January - more than two months
after the incident.
Antieau explained that legally,

the only role the University could
have played in the sentencing was if
the court required the University to

The involvement of both the
University and a student made the
case particularly challenging,
Vincent said.
"This was a very difficult case.
You have to weigh (the survivor's)
concerns, the concerns of society,
the concerns of the University,"
Vincent said. "To do this, and to do
it properly, to appreciate the pain, is
just extremely difficult."

Some candidates identified other
reasons for poor turnout than a failed
voter drive.
"We put our posters out, but I
think there is a lot of general student
apathy and disgust in MSA," said
Conservative Coalition presidential
candidate Brent House. "Students

don't care because MSA hasn't done
anything to make students want to
get out and vote."
Kight said his campaign put fliers
in each mailbox in most residence
halls but said improving MSA might
lead to more voters.
Some students were motivated to
vote after being bothered by candi-
dates campaigning last week.
Engineering sophomore Heather
Elmquist - who voted at a North
Campus poll site - said, "They
were screaming and yelling up there.
It was enough to get you to vote."
