"We're a state institution and any
restrictions we might try to place on
developing personal relationships
need to be for good reasons. The good
reason for doing that is usually de-
scribed under the term 'Conflict of
Interest'. It's very difficult for people
to be objective with people with whom
they are closely related or have great
interest," she added.
Dawson stressed that the policy is
meant not to reprimand the faculty
member or the student, but rather to
ensure objectivity in the academic
aspect of the relationship.
"We're interested at the Univer-
sity that people be evaluated for their
performance, not on personal rela-
tionships," she said. "That is a good
reason for us to say to faculty mem-
bers that they should not grade people
with whom they are romantically in-
Regardless of the 'relationship-
friendly-if-it's-reported' attitude the
University holds, relationships inevi-
tably go on without that official go-
One student, a sophomore who
asked that her name not be used, is
currently dating the teaching assistant
she had for one of her classes during
last Fall Term.

"We didn't begin dating until after
the semester was over," she said.
"(The class) was in a lab course.
He was very friendly, and he showed
personal interest in all of his students.
I'd see him around campus and we
would say 'Hi' and chat. I saw him the
day after grades came out and we
decided to go to a movie and that's
how it began. We had a friendship
while we were in class."
Now, nine months later, they are
still together.
She said that there are a few ob-
stacles in dating a former teacher.
"He thinks I'm going to go out
with another one of my TAs and I
tease him about going out with an-
other one ofhis students," she laughed.
Her boyfriend is still a TA, but for a
different course.
The relationship also inhibits her
choice of sections for other classes in
her boyfriend's department. "I
wouldn't take classes with my
boyfriend's TA friends."
She also had to tell her parents
about her situation, which went rela-
tively well.
"They didn't have a problem with
it," she said. "He's a teaching assis-
tant, and he's not that much older than
I am. Maybe they thought it was a
little unusual, but other than that, they
laughed about it."
She also noted that the professor of

the class did not know and still does
not know.
While her story is a happy one, still
she cautions others about getting in-
volved in a relationship with a present
or former teacher.
"I would not suggest that anyone
do it. If we were ever to break up, it
would make it very difficult for me to
take another class in that department
because I know all of the other TAs in
the department now. I wouldn't sug-
gest it as a wise behavior pattern."
Hartmut Rastalsky, a sixth-year
Rackham student and Great Books
TA agreed that student-faculty rela-
tionships should be avoided.
"It seems bad to me for students
and professors to be in romantic rela-
tionships at all when the professor is
teaching the student," he said, adding
that he thinks it is good for a regula-
tory policy to be in existence.
John Squier, a fourth-year
Rackham student and Political Sci-
ence TA, said he thinks the policy
should be more restrictive.
"I'd favor a stricter policy to ban
(faculty-student relationships) out-
right," he said. "I've never been in a
class that didn't depend on your per-
formance in the classroom. I'd imag-
ine if you were involved with a stu-
dent it would be very hard to give an
unbiased grade to their performance
in the classroom."

Motors Corp., said the envisioned fuel
efficiency -gains would amount to
"nothing less than a major, even radi-
cal breakthrough. We are proposing a
whole new class of car."
Seniorauto industry engineerssaid
they foresaw no technology that would
readily lead to the kind of fuel effi-
ciency gains suggested by Clinton and
still keep cars at current size, safety
levels and price.
"We don't even have a vision of
what such a car would look like," said.
a senior Chrysler engineer, who asked
not to be identified. But the engineers
said they welcomed the opportunity.
The automakers have made little
improvements in overall fuel effi-
ciency in the last eight years, with cars
and trucks getting on average about
28 miles per gallon, although a small
number of subcompact cars have
achieved better than 40 mpg.
Attempts by some members of
Congress to require automakers to
achieve a fleet average of 40 mpg
have been heatedly opposed by the
manufacturers who argue those levels
can't be reached without depriving
consumers of the family-size vehicles
now in showrooms.
It is unclear how much money
would be put into the new research.

more about other cultures.
"The emphasis now is on
multiculturalism in student affairs ...
to bring more multiculturalism and
diversity to campus," he said. "The
environment is right to learn about
other cultures."
Dashner said he hopes to make
people more aware of Native Ameri-
can issues and shed some light on the
true history of this cultural group.
"A lot of history is slanted," he
said. "It's inaccurately written by non-
Native American historians. A lot of
people are appalled at ethnic cleans-
ing in Bosnia. They don't realize that's
exactly what was going on in this
country until very recently."
His present job is not the first time
that Dashner, a 1977 University gradu-
ate, has worked with Native Ameri-
cans. He is the former director of the
Comprehensive Employment and
Training Act, a job covering a six-
county area in which he designed pro-
grams to help unemployed and under-
employed Native Americans find per-
manent work. He was also the Assis-
for Men and Women
668-9329 Liberty off State

tant Director of the Southeast Michi-
gan Indian Center, a social service
When he was first hired for his
present position as a temporary, he
was working as a subcontractor. He
decided to apply because it was dur-
ing the fall, and the construction busi-
ness was slow. When the permanent
position was advertised six months
later, he applied and was hired.
"The main thing that stands out
about (Dashner) is that he is very
prominent in the Indian community
of the Midwest," said Jim Beck, a
member of the search committee that
hired Dashner. "Everyone knows him
and respects him.
"We wanted someone who was
very well-founded in the (Native
American) culture - he was a musi-
cian and dancer for 15 or 20 years
before that," he said.
Dashner is also the founder of the
U-M Indian Dance Club. The two
main objectives of the club are to
teach young people about the dances
so they can participate in celebrations
and help inform people about Native
American culture and do away with
stereotypes, he said.
Dashner's 12-year-old daughter
Alyssa is an award-winning dancer
and the youngest member of the club.

Dashner said he hopes to "pass -n a
sense of pride in her heritage aid
participation in her culture."
"I make an effort to take her to
different celebrations and ceremonies
so she can be exposed to that culture,"
he said.
Dashner has a dream to educate
people in the United States and around
the world about his culture.
"I'd really like to travel around the
world, ... like to Europe and dance
before audiences there and talk about
my culture," he said. "That's my ulti-
mate dream."
He also would like to return to
schooL "I'm really fascinated by In-
dian history - the key to Indian his-
tory is in the mythology, legends, and
religious ceremonies." he said.
Dashner said many students seem
unaware that the campus political en-
vironment has changed for the better
since the '70s, when he was a student.
"It's opened up for people of color
a lot more - especially since Presi-
dent Duderstadt came on board people
of color have come out of the closet.
"We actually paved the road for
students going now - we made it
much more accessible ... what hap-
pened at the University was a carryover
from the Civil Rights movement -

people don't realize the battles that
were fought."
Some of the battles he mentioned
were the Black Action Movement
(BAM) strikes in the '70s and '80s.
Dashner, who participated in the
second BAM strike, said the strikes
were based on the belief of many
students of color that the University
was institutionally racist.
In response to the demands of Af-
rican American students for a Black
advocate, the MSS office was created.
Later, the advocate position changed
to representative, and positions were
added for Latinos, Native Americans,
and Asian Americans.
Pauline Herring, secretary in the
MSS office, said, "Because of
(Dashner's) knowledge of the history
of Native Americans, I have found
working with him and the Native
American students most informative
and interesting."
In the future, Dashner hopes to get
involved in education in a primary
Native American community, such as
a reservation.
"We have problems getting young
people ready for institutions like (the
University)," he said. "Indian students
get shortchanged by the education

About 900 women registered for
Rush at Panhel's Sept. 10 mass meet-
ing. They were divided into groups of
between 40 and 50, and assigned three
to four Rush Counselors.
Rho Chis were responsible for
keeping contact with the rushees
throughout the process.
After each of the four sets during
Rush, rushees received a list of houses
that asked them back, and decided
which ones they wanted to revisit. At
the end of Rush, the women went to
the Union and recorded their first
through third preferences.
Panhel personnel matched the
women's preferences and the sorority
houses' lists. Each rushee received
only one bid. Seiler and 36 sorority
alumni did the bid matching by hand,
but the entire rest of the Rush process

is computerized.
It is believed that approximately
300 women dropped out of Rush, but
Panhel would not confirm this figure.
Total registration was down this
year. Seiler attributed this to enroll-
ment being down at the University,
and the poor economy. She insisted
this was nothing to panic about, add-
ing "that (Panhel) wanted to maintain
(numbers) where they are now."
The Rush registration fee was low-
ered this year to make Rush more
desirable, Seiler said, adding it may
be abolished completely in the future.
Seiler said the large number of
women who dropped out of Rush is
not unusual. Sometimes students re-
alize it is too much too soon, or simply
feel sorority life is not for them.
But one first-year student said
women drop Rush mostly out of dis-
appointment from not getting asked
back to a house they really liked.
