HASH BASH
Continued from page 1
called "The Lone Reefer," eliciting
cheers from the crowd.
At 1 p.m., the core of the rally
marched to Fuller Park, where Hash
Bash continued with additional
speakers and a live band. University
rules only allow amplified sound
from noon to one o'clock.
Many people, however, stayed
behind and milled around on the
Diag.
One man, decked out in a shirt,
tie and cap emblazoned with the pat-
tern of the American flag, danced
atop a Diag bench to a boombox
blare. Another attendee draped him-
self in a white cloak painted red at
the top - like an immense mari-
juana joint. And somebody else,
seemingly oblivious to his surround-
ings, walked around tapping people
with an inflatable hammer he was
trying to sell.
"I like all the hats everybody's
wearing," said Jennifer.Newman of
Clio, Mich., glancing around at 18th-
century colonial caps some
protesters wore to signify a time in
U.S. history when many Americans
- including George Washington -
legally grew hemp.
"You can make just about any-
thing out of hemp," said Shelley Day
of Akron, Ohio, who came to Ann

Arbor with a necklace, some
pouches and dog leashes slung
around her neck - all woven from
hemp.
"Pot is organic, it comes from the
ground," she said. "If God didn't
want it, it would not be around."
But one person held a different
interpretation of the Bible.
Mark Cushman of the Christian
Missionary Alliance in Rochester
Hills stood firmly on the Graduate
Library steps holding a sign that read
"SMOKE BRIMSTONE
SINNERS." Ralliers below pelted
him with dozens of snowballs.
"Smoking pot is a sin in the eyes
of the Lord," Cushman said. "Being
stoned won't save you when you're
burning in hell."
Cushman said he was undeterred
by the flying missiles.
"Big deal," he quipped. "They
stoned Stephen, they crucified my
Lord. Nothing happens unless God
allows it."
Many people trekked from other
cities and states to attend Hash Bash.
One man came here all the way from
Hawaii.
"I think it's really less of students
and more of tradition, why we're
here at this spot," said one Hash
Bash veteran, who called himself
"bill-i I."
The annual gatherings have be-

come something of an embarrass-
ment for the University, which has
battled Hash Bash in court for three
of the last four years.
Last Thursday, the event's spon-
sor, the National Organization for
the Reform of Marijuana Laws
(NORML), won a legal injunction,
paving the way for Hash Bash.
Maureen Hartford, the
University's vice president for stu-
dent affairs, watched in amazement
at the top of the Graduate Library
steps Saturday as a fistfight erupted
among several people throwing
snowballs.
Responding to NORML's
charges that the University wants to
stop Hash Bash, she said, "Of course
we're trying to stop this event, in
this form."
Hartford said she would prefer an
organized forum in Rackham
Auditorium, for instance, where
NORML could debate marijuana
legalization.
"I don't think what this is about
is a discussion," she said, glancing at
the fracas below.
Asked what she thought Hash
Bash is about, she said, "I truly don't
know. I think people do come here
to get high. That's not what we're
about."

comfortable.
Brater mentioned the
University's participation in recy-
,cling, specifically the Materials
Recovery Facility (MRF), which is
projected to help recycle 50 percent
of Ann Arbor's waste stream when
construction is finished in 1994.
"The recycling program is a joint
effort," Brater said. "One reason the
city is able to save money is Univer-
sity recyclables will be going to our
MRF."
Sheldon said the biggest chal-
lenge to the MRF will be getting the
community involved.
"We have to depend on good co-
operation," she said of the publicly-
owned facility. "We're going to
have to commission a lot of
education for making it convenient."
Government funding sources and
providing services have also become
a high priority for the candidates.
Brater said that, while property
taxes are high in Ann Arbor, there
really is not much the city can do
and the alternatives are not much
better.
"The property tax burden has to
be solved in Lansing," she said.
Brater pointed out that during her
term, tax rates have not gone up and
a garbage bag fee was avoided.
While the city administrator
called for 2-3-percent across-the-
board cuts this year, "At a certain
point, we're just going to have to
look for other creative solutions. So
far we've found (waste in the city
budget) and I don't think we're
done. Not by a long shot," Brater
said.
Brater has also said she does not
support a city income tax.
Sheldon said voter displeasure
makes it difficult for governments to
provide extra services.
"People are very skeptical of

government," she said.-'They've be-
come very anti-tax."r
She said public-school funding
should also be examined.
"I certainly support a re-looking
at how we support education," she
said. "Nobody is willing to have
enough courage to stand up and say
we need to address school funding."
However, she said, a city income
tax should not be an alternative.
Salvette agreed the tax burden
was too much, mentioning privatiza-
tion as a way to help the strained
city budget.
"This is a very high tax town and
our senior citizens are finding this
out," she said. "In my Libertarian vi-
sion, in my utopia, streets would be
private. (Right now) they belong to
everybody. That's the problem with
public-owned goods."
Salvette said while police and the
courts could not be privatized, water
treatment could. Improved technol-
ogy could add roads to that list, she
said.
But Brater all but ruled out priva-
tization as a way to save money say-
ing, "I'm not looking at privatizing
anything."
Jensen said he is interested in
starting a public works program to
employ 10,000 people during the
next five years. He said the project
could use labor provided by
teenagers and homeless persons to
bu'ild housing and parking struc-
tures.
Public housing in Ann Arbor and
the role of the Housing Commission
have been at the center of recent
controversy.
Brater praised the private enter-
prises helping with the city's hous-
ing programs.
"The non-profits have done a
wonderful job," she said. "That is a
good example of private-public
partnership."
She added government should
not be blamed for the problems.
