Spring fashion show graces Union
runways to aid homeless, hungry

by David Shepardson
Daily Staff Reporter
In the same room once graced by
fashionable, turtleneck-wearing ex-
presidential candidate Jerry Brown,
University students held their own fash-
ion show last night in the Michigan
Union.
More than 130 people attended the
"Fashion Show Extravaganza," a ben-
efit to aid the homeless and the hungry
presented by the University Activities
Center in conjunction with Serve Week.
Fifteen clothing stores, including the
Gap, AnnTaylor and County Seat, do-

nated spring and summer fashions for
the event.
Models wore everything from run-
ning suits, silk blazers, and starfish pins
to evening gowns, gold "hotpants," and
arguably tacky ties.
Michelle Antonino, an assistant co-
ordinator of the show, said the event
was important because of its philan-
thropic purpose.
"'This is a special event for students
because all of the money goes to help
thehomeless," shesaid. "All thestudent
models donated their time for charity."
Some students in the audience ex-

pressed concern that the "yuppie-esque"
style of wearing a sweater over the
shoulders would be in during the com-
ing season.
Martha Chen, an LSA sophomore,
who modeled the "sweater-over-the-
shoulders look" admitted that before
yesterday she had never worn a sweater
that way.
"It is too hard to keep it on," Chen
said.
In addition, all outfits worn by the
models were clean and neatly pressed in
stark contrast to the wrinkled, re-worn
clothes of many students on campus.
All money and canned goods col-
lected were donated to the Ann Arbor
Hunger Coalition, Habitat for Human-
ity and Arbor Haven/Salvation Army.
The 31 student models, most of
whom had no previous modeling expe-
rience, practiced runway moves for six
hours last weekend and were not al-
lowed to keep the clothes they wore in
the fashion show.

MSA
ontinued from page 1
Tobias Zimmerman, an outgo-
ing LSA representative, expressed
his hopes for the new assembly.
"I'm glad to see a lot of new
blood on the assembly," he said. "I
think the assembly has alot of poten-
tial."
After final reports from all com-
mittee and commission chairs, the
old assembly adjourned. Fox then
bestowed the MSA presidency upon
Greenberg through the traditional
passing of the gavel. Kight was
sworn in as the new vice president.
As the former members shuffled
out and the recently elected mem-
bers sank into their chairs, Greenberg
convened the new assembly for the
first time.
"I think we should go around the
table and introduce ourselves since
we're all going to be working to-
gether for a while," Greenberg said.
After a round of introductions,
the assembly got down to business.
New members were introduced to
MSA's key administrative figures
and office procedures.

MSA starts task force
on homosexual issues

'93 homecoming
we are seeking representatives
from all student organizations, a
lot more students, and maybe
even Shakey Jake to make next fall's
homecoming.....well.....heyl.....YOU DECIDE!

by Adam Anger
Daily MSA Reporter
Outgoing Michigan S tudentAssem-
bly representatives said goodbye to their
positions last night, but not before pass-
ing a last-minute resolution.
Representatives passed a resolution
that created a task force on lesbian, gay
and bisexual student affairs. The resolu-
tiQn - sponsored by Women's Issues
Commission Chair Erika Gottfried -
passed 19-5 after much debate.
"I think that there aremany issues on
this campus that aren't being addressed
sufficiently," Gottfried said. "These
people need to have their issues ad-
dressed."
According to the resolution, this task
force was created because, "lesbian,
gay and bisexual students comprise a
significant portion of MSA's constitu-
ency and many students have expressed
concern over MSA's lack of sensitivity
to those issues."
Gottfried said, "No matterwhat your

appearance, the second-generation
Maize & Blue was redesigned top to
bottom," said team member Shawn
Gabel, an Engineering senior.
The new car can reach an average
speed of 45 miles per hour and runs on
a two-horsepower electric motor that
draws its energy from the car's solar
cells. In direct sunlight these cells can
generate 1,000 watts of power - the
equivalent of a portable hair dryer.
FacultyadvisorProf. BruceKarnopp
stressed that the 21-member race crew
introduced at the ceremony only repre-
sents part of the team. More than 100
students in Engineering, LSA, the Art
School and the Business School have
been working for almost two years.
"It has been a University-wide
project," said Karnopp. "The logistics
of the entire project go beyond engi-
neering and management."

views on lesbians, gays, and bisexu-
als, you should vote for this."
Engineering Rep. Brian Kight
opposed the section of the resolution
requiring that the task force be co-
chaired by a man and a woman from
the lesbian, gay, bisexual constitu-
ency.
Kight said he opposed this speci-
fication because the compiled code of
MSA states that each task force be
headed by "a chairperson."
Gottfried insisted on electing co-
chairs because male and female ho-
mosexuals and bisexuals have differ-
ent concerns that needtobe addressed.
The assembly supported President
Ede Fox's ruling that will allow the
task force to be headed by a man and
a woman as co-chairs.
According to the resolution, the
task force will act as the assembly's
liaison to The Lesbian Gay Male Pro-
grams Office and will continue for
one year.

The project was almost entirely
funded by corporate sponsors such as
FordMotor Co. and Christy Industries,
Inc. The team received more than
$750,000 in cash and materials.
"It's fair to say that this car would
not be here today if it weren't for the
hard work of our sponsors," Nazeeri
said.
Private donors also contributed to
the effort. Andrew Schrauben, aHuron
High School junior, sponsored one of
the car's solar cells.
"I want to work on a solar car
someday, and I wanted to do whatever
I could to help Maize & Blue," said
Schrauben.

what it promises. Let's give it a chance
first," Pace said. 4
Stoll and Copi also emphasized
crime prevention while Pace said he
does not think crime is a serious prob-
lem. Stoll and Copi both have plans to
increase neighborhood watch programs
to increase awareness of crime.
Stoll said he feels crime rates have
increased primarily in apartment and
student areas. He hopes to change com-
munity members' attitudes by institut-
ing a neighborhood watch program in
apartments, particularly in the com-
plexes along Stadium Boulevard.
"Tenants should work with manage-
ment to make it more difficult (for bur-
glars) toget into apartments," Stoll said.
Copi said residents should not de-
pend solely on the police for crime
protection. He said citizens should edu-
cate themselves on prevention and pro-
tection against crime.
Even though Copi emphasized im-
proving student representation on the
council, he spoke against local govern-
ment involvement in public housing.
"The city is not a good level of
government to provide public hous-

ing," Copi said
He added that housing is not af-
fordable in Ann Arbor because the
city has too many zoning regulations
that prevent high density housing.
Pace also stressed affordable hous-
ing. He said he hopes to provide low
interest loans for first-time home
owners.
Stoll said public housing should
resemble a co-op arrangement and
the city should provide more subsi-
dized single-unit housing.
All three candidates agreed that
changes need tobe made on the coun-
cil.
Pace said thatthecoundilmembers
need to listen more to their constitu-
ents.1"Councilmembers should align
themselves with the voter. I want to
maintain that independence.".
Copisaidthebiggestproblem with
the council is that the city is wasting
taxpayer money.
"Currently, the city is operating
activities that are run tooexpensively.
Employing city employees is a bur-
den to the city," Copi said.
Stoll said the council is trying to
make decisions that should be made
by experts or the city administrator.
