For business, recycling is the
buzzword of the 1990s. But local
businesses have found that there is
more to recycling than putting
cardboard into a bin.
Many local businesses such as
Logos, University Spirit, Stucchi's
and Foot Prints have taken advan-
tage of Ann Arbor's recycling op-
portunities, but many retain
Amer's Deli recycles cans, bot-
tles, milk containers and
cardboard boxes, but uses
disposable plastic silverware to
accommodate its take-out orders,
said Ann Wagner, manager of
Amer's Deli on State Street.
"We recycle as much as we
can, basically Amer's can't do
anymore than we do," said Rashad
Shafie, manager of Amer's Deli
on Church Street.
Shafie said much of Amer's
packaging relies' on paper
products. He added that wax paper
- one such paper product used
for sandwich wrapping - is made
of recycled paper only when the

happens to send them recycled

LOS ANGELES (AP) -
Barricades went up around the
courthouse and Marines practiced
storming a town yesterday, the
fourth day of jury deliberations in
the Rodney King beating case.
Sketch artists were admonished
by U.S. District Judge John Davies,
who said they were "too accurate for
comfort" in their portrayals of the
anonymous jury deciding the fate of
four police officers accused of
violating King's civil rights.
"Any drawings of jurors or
alternates must contain minimal
detail and must not render them
recognizable," the judge wrote in a
court order posted in the courthouse
A crane lowered 3-foot-high
concrete barriers into place outside
the federal building, blocking the
entrance to crowds and vehicles, and
a chainlink fence went up around a
parking lot across the street. Police
said it would be used as a staging
"This is part of our preparedness
program," said Lt. John Dunkin.
About 600 National Guard troops
trained at armories in Inglewood,
Burbank, Glendale, Los Alamitos,
Van Nuys and Arcadia.
"California guardsmen have been
instructed that they are to use any
means at their disposal to protect
themselves or any other citizen if
they are in threat of human death,,"
said Maj. Gen. Tandy Bozeman.
Another military stingent was
trining 80 miles to the south.

Hours after Sgt. Stacey Koon,
Officers Laurence Powell and
Theodore Briseno and former
Officer Timothy Wind were
acquitted of most charges in a state
trial last April, the city erupted in
violence that left 54 people dead and
caused $1 billion damage.
Police under the leadership of
former Chief Daryl Gates were
criticized for their delayed response
to the unrest, but new Chief Willie
Williams has promised protection
for the city's 3.6 million residents.

Although panelists at an Earth
Week discussion yesterday agreed
environmental destruction is a ma-
jor global problem, that was the
only consensus they reached.
Twenty students and alumni
listened to five professors from
various University schools discuss
their diverse opinions on how to
best address the world's growing
"We can never restore the envi-
ronment that we once had," said
Bruce Chin, a molecular biologist:
specializing in carcinogenesis and
environmental risk in the School
of Public Health.
Things seem to be getting
worse, said some panelists.
"Less than one-eighth of 1 per-
cent of the tropical lumber trade is
being managed on a sustainable
basis," added Thomas Princen, an
international policy professor in
the School of Natural Resources
and the Environment. He added
that less than half the countries
now trading lumber will have
enough trees to continue trading
30 years from now.

Deitch, McGowan visit
MSA meeting to hear
student input, concerns
by Jennifer Tianen
Daily MSA Reporter
The all-powerful emperors strolled into an
audience with the lowly peons. That was how
Michigan Student Assembly members per-
ceived the visit from two members of the
University Board of Regents at the MSA
meeting last night.
Yet over the next hour and a half; Regents
Laurence Deitch (D-Bloomfield Hills) and
Rebecca McGowan (D-Ann Arbor), said they
were eager to respond to student questions
and assist students with their problems and
"We would like to make this one of a
number of visits here," McGowan said.
Deitch added, "I'm looking forward to
this as the beginning of a series of dialogues."
After opening introductions, MSA mem-
bers began voicing their concerns about the
Statement of Student Rights and
Responsibilities, student-regent communica-
tion, the importance of students in administra-
tive decisions, tuition increases, educational
quality and the proposed selling of
MSA President Craig Greenberg inquired
about the regents' opinions on the statement.
"All I know about the Code (the state-
ment) is what I read in the newspaper,"
McGowan said. "I'm not being given a
Deitch stated that his concerns with the
statement rested mainly with the right of free
"Although the atmosphere may have been
well-intentioned, (the statement) could have a
chilling effect on free speech," he said.
The regents said they would be better pre-
pared to answer questions after reviewing the
statement statistics next spring.
Because University President James
Duderstadt declined an invitation to dine in
East Quad with first-year Rep. David Pava,
Pava asked the regents about their acces-
