He added that the contract
agreement is a great success for
GEO, but TAs must continue to
show their support for the union.
"While I'm happy with the
contract, I still think we have to
work harder for the next contract ne-
gotiations," he said. "I'd like to see
TAs take a stand for the work they
However, before a contract was
agreed upon, some TAs expressed
discontent with the ongoing
At the height of negotiations,
Spanish TA Matt Wyszynski made
his support for union activity evident
by wearing GEO T-shirts and

buttons, and even teaching his class
in the hallway.
But once the University retracted
its proposed health care plan, he and
many other TAs were not as
adamant about the proposals that
remained on the table.
"The only thing I would strike for
(was) GradCare and child care," he
said. "If they settled with the present
proposals I would be satisfied."
Now that a contract has been
agreed upon, Curtiss said members
should not become apathetic toward
the union.
"We have to make sure the union
stays strong in the next three years,"
he said. "People must get involved
before we're in the height of

Mourad said stopping liquor sales
during that period of time will cost

But Mourad said, "Sometimes
money is not everything. If people
say that alcohol is the cause of these
problems, then the safety of the
people is more important."
However Hop-In Manager Chris
Robinson said suspending liquor
sales might create even more
"If people are going to drink,
people are going to drink," Robinson
said. "If they can't get it here then
they'll hop into a car and get it
somewhere else, then we have drunk

drivers on our hands."
Robinson said Hop-In is not par-
ticipating in the alcohol suspension
because it is part of a chain that must

headquarters before making such

her today whether alcohol will still
be sold in the store, but in the mean-
time she has removed all displays,

Student reactions to the
suspension of alcohol sales varied.
LSA Senior Tina Aalfs said the
decision angered her and would have
little impact on potential crowd
"I'm definitely mad," Aalfs said.
But LSA/Music senior George
Stoffan said he felt the suspension of
liquor sales will help, and will not
detract from the excitement of the

think once we review the opinion in
detail, we may obviously appeal, but
that's certainly not going to happen
between now and Saturday."
In February, the University said
that before it granted a permit to use
the Diag, it wanted NORML to pay
$9,400 for projected security,
cleanup and electrical expenses. The
estimate was based on the costs of
last year's Hash Bash.
NORML later filed a motion that
said these demands violated its First
Amendment rights.
Judge Shelton - who also or-
dered the University to hand over
Diag permits in 1990 and 1992 -
did say NORML has to pay for
electrical power for its sound ampli-
fiers. Brook said NORML has
agreed to pay the $145 the Univer-
sity wants for electricity.
Hash Bash is a political rally/pot-
smoking fest held every April that
draws thousands of people onto the
Diag. Speakers call for marijuana
legalization, vendors peddle T-shirts
and paraphernalia, and many people
in the crowd get high.
Thirty campus police and secu-
rity officers, aided by a dozen state
police troopers and sheriff's
deputies, will arrest and book people
caught smoking marijuana on

While city police patrolling off-
campus will issue tickets under Ann
Arbor's $25 pot law, campus cops
will, enforce a stiffer state law that
carries a maximum one-year jail
sentence and $1,000 fine.
Brook said he expects 5,000 to{
10,000 people to show, depending
on the weather.
The forecast calls for mostly
cloudy skies with a chance of snow
in the morning, with highs from the
mid-30s to the low 40s.
The number of arrests this year
- like Michigan weather - is un-
"We'll make whatever number of
arrests that we see violations of the
law for," said Robert Pifer, associate
director of the University's Depart-
ment of Public Safety. "If people,
don't drink and don't use drugs, we
won't make any arrests. We don't
have any control over that."
After an hour on the Diag, Hash
Bash will uproot itself and move to
Fuller Park, where it will continue
for the rest of the afternoon.
Brook said the event will move
because University rules only allow
one hour of amplified sound, and
NORML wants to continue the rally
for several hours.
Eight to 10 Ann Arbor police of-
ficers will patrol off-campus and
help escort the ralliers during their
one-mile march to Fuller Park, said
Capt. Dan Branson.

treated as any other resident," Pierce
He added that housing is too ex-
pensive and rents should be based
on one-fourth of a person's income.
Pierce said, "The cost of housing
is not in balance with current
He added that the city's public
housing has a bad reputation.
"To be in a public housing site, it
is saying that your class is inferior,"
Pierce said. "Public housing is per-
ceived to be housing of charity and
something a person should be
ashamed of."
He believes it is the council's re-
sponsibility to improve citizens' im-
age of public housing sites. He said
the council should develop educa-
tional programs, beginning in high
school, to teach students how impor-
tant public housing is to low-income
Stead said the council has a re-
sponsibility to make sure everyone
in the city has housing. He said the
council should provide low-income
housing through renovation of exist-
ing housing structures instead of
buying land and building structures
from scratch.
Stead added that the Housing
Commission should be restructured
to offer more public housing tenant
control. He said the commission'
should be made up of,. not only
council-appointed representatives,
but should also include people who
are elected by public-housing resi-
dents. He believes this would create
a more cooperative atmosphere
between tenants and the council.
Hyne said providing public hous-
ing is not the city government's re-
sponsibility. But he feels the council
should put pressure on the federal
government to create new public

housing structures in Ann Arbor.
In addition to concern with pub-
lic housing, the candidates also ex-
pressed a need for environmental
Stead said he will work toward
improving Ann Arbor's water qual-
ity. He said that as a result of animal
waste, oil and gas, pollution levels.
have increased, especially in the the
Huron River and Geddes Pond. He
plans to look into figuring out the
most cost effective ways to clean up
Ann Arbor's water systems.
Stead also hopes to work toward
ensuring that Ann Arbor parks and
recreational areas are well managed
and maintained.
Murphy said he plans to support
the Materials Recycling Facility
(MRF). He added that the MRF is
cheaper for tax payers and will en-
able the city to recover as much
waste as possible.
Hyne said the city should look
toward encouraging and educating
citizens to recycle and buy
environmentally safe products.
"Legislation of morals will
never work. We need voluntary
cooperation," Hyne said.
He added that the city should al-
low the private sector to deal with
waste disposal because he feels pri-
vate companies could save taxpay-
ers money.
Reducing taxes and budgeting
city funds were two ways Murphy
felt the city could save tax dollars.
"The city has limited resourcess
There comes to a point where you
have to say, 'We can't do it all',"
Murphy said.
He added that the council needs
to prioritize funding to Ann Arbor
social agencies.
Hyne also stressed the need to re;
duce property taxes. He said if taxes
do not decrease, many residents will
be forced to leave the city.
Pierce said he supports one
single tax to fund all city services.
