Vegetarian students eat their greens and smile

Mary Madill has meat dreams.
The first-year student became a
vegetarian this summer. She chased
animal flesh from her menu, but that
won't stop hot dogs from haunting
"I feel sick about it," she said. But
that doesn't mean she'll back down
on her principles.
Madill is one of a rapidly growing
number of vegetarians popping up on
college campuses across the country.
They're replacing beans and tofu for
ground beef and pork and forcing
institutions like the University to ac-
commodate their needs.
As a result, residence hall cafete-
rias have adopted garden burger cui-
sine, vegetarian bars and spreads of
beans, greens, stir fries and pasta.
University nutritionists are also
available to help students formulate
diets and provide information.These
options help students like Madill con-

tinue leading non-carnivorous lives.
"It's easy in the residence hall to
eat vegetarian food because there is
always fresh fruit and fresh vegetables.
It's more difficult to not eat meat at a
restaurant," said LSA junior
Alexandra Hambright.
While some students have been
vegetarians their entire lives, others
avoid meat for religious reasons.
Also, a trend toward environmen-
tal consciousness and animal rights
has led some students to forsake the
"I just didn't believe that the eat-
ing of animals was humane, and it
wasn't that hard to become a vegetar-
ian because I didn't like the taste of
meat anyway," said Tracy
Suykerbuyk, afirst-year LSA student.
"It is also more healthy if you
sustain your diet with beans and other
products so you can get your protein
and other vitamins."
Nutritionist Paula Herzog agreed,
adding that meat-free eating can be

"Some are under the impression
that being a vegetarian is just giving
up meat. But it is also trading other
things for meat," Herzog said. "If you
leave out the (nutrition provided by
the) meat group, then you don't have
a balanced diet."
She suggested vegetarians replace
meats and eggs with nuts, beans and
The body needs nine essential
amino acids. One serving of beef or
poultry provides all nine of these re-
quirements. Vegetarians, however,
must take in these amino acids by
complementing their proteins.
If a vegetarian fails to meet the
protein requirements they risk mal-
nutrition and reduction in hormone
production, Herzog said. "I do see
some protein malnutrition because
vegetarians haven't complemented
their proteins," she added.

"If you like your hormones, you

Many students are introduced to
veggie diets while in college. And
while some merely experiment with
the lifestyle, others change eating
habits for life.
She attributes the popularity of
experimenting with vegetarianism to
peer pressure and weight conscious-
ness, among other things.
"An awful lot of the time students
have friends who are vegetarians, or
they are counting fat grams," she said.
Herzog, who heads nutrition edu-
cation for the University, said that
while about 50 percent of students are
vegetarians at the beginning of the
school year, the figure decreases sub-
stantially as the year continues.
She estimates that only about 25
percent of any given residence hall
remains eating green by the end of the

so it's money that goes to people who
are in need," said Brian Taylor, the
Washtenaw United Way's media re-
lations coordinator. "We certainly
appreciate the efforts being made by
both fraternities."
Walter Perkle, aSigmaNu pledge,
said he is running because he thinks
it's a worthwhile cause.
"There's a general atmosphere of
wanting to help the community," said
Perkle, a first-year LSA student. "And
it would be exciting to run the official
game ball into the stadium."
Sigma Nu member Sandy
Sussman also stressed the value of
philanthropic events such as this one.
"One of the main things a frater-
nity does besides academics and so-
cial is philanthropy," said Sussman,
an LSA senior. "It's a good opportu-
nity for fraternities to give something
back to the community."
Sussman added the University
Sigma Nu members will stay and
watch the game before coming home,

SafeWalk, the University's student
run, after-dark walking service, may
have to alter the usual routine - but
only a little bit.
This year, SafeWalk is going to
operate a tad differently, cutting back
its operating time by a half an hour
and shifting its place of operation
from a split between the UGLi lobby
and the Angell Hall computing center
to the UGLi exclusively.
Nadir Ait-Laoussine, a SNREjun-
ior and co-coordinator of SafeWalk,
said the group reviewed their
statistisics and found they were re-
ceiving very few calls between 2:30
and 3 a.m. so they decided to cut back
their stopping time from 3 a.m. to
2:30 a.m. in order to let their volun-
teers get some rest.
"We believe we'll still be able to
provide the same quality of
service,"Ait-Laoussine said.

"Our hours used to be from 8 p.m.
until 1:30 a.m. in the UGLi and then
from 1:30 a.m. until 3 am in Angell
Hall, but and we had never specified
when last call was."
Ait-Laoussine added that under
the old hours, SafeWalk volunteers
sometimes didn't get home until four
in the morning. "We lost a lot of first-
year walkers because of that," he said.
"All of this is experimental be-
cause we're also moving to the UGLi.
We don't know if it'll de a positive or
what. If we realize that there's a really
high demand, we'll reconsider our
decision of cutting down the hours."

ages but said the United States must
nonetheless see the mission to its end.
He asked: "Do we leave when the job
gets tough--orwhen the jobisdone?"
He said more than 1 million So-
malis still were dependent on the re-
lief operations for food and said those
efforts would crumble if the United
States withdrew its military forces.
"Let us finish the work we set out
to do," the president said. "Let us
demonstrate to the world ... that when
Americans take on a challenge they
finish it right."
Clinton closed his 10-minute ad-
dress with a tribute to the troops in
Somalia and the families of those
killed. "My message to you is: Your
country is grateful and so is the world,
and so is the vast majority of the
Somali people."
Senate Republican leader Bob
Dole applauded the president for
making clear the mission would be
directed by U.S. commanders.

Forces loyal to Aidid are blamed
for a weekend street battle in which
13 Americans were killed, 77
wounded and at least one captured.
Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Texas) said
such a time frame "is totally unac-
ceptable to me and I believe totally
unacceptable to Congress."
On Capitol Hill, there were scat-
tered demands for the resignation of
Defense Secretary Les Aspin. The
White House said Clinton was stick-
ing with the Pentagon chief.
Clinton met with lawmakers jn
the Roosevelt Room for two hours.
"The majority of American casu-
alties have been because of our obses-
sion with seizing Aidid on the part o*
the U.N.," Sen. Paul Simon (D-Ill;)
told reporters later.
"I think that's been a mistake." He
said that a political resolution should
be the goal.
House SpeakerThomas Foley said,
"I think that there is a sense that the
mission became somewhat distorted
and personalized and that it needs to
be redirected."

most sororities and fraternities on Hill

They all have basic needs-it doesn't

... They need to be accepted for who
they are," she said.
Of the many memorable
experinces working in MSS has given
Robinson, the event that sticks out
most clearly in her mind occured in
1985 when she brought together Afri-
can American student organization
leaders for a Black student leader
dialogue, she said.
Many of the African American
student organizations were working
independently from each other, and
the dialogue brought the leaders to-
gether so they could meet and begin
communication between groups.
At the time, many of the organiza-
tions were planning activities for the
first Martin Luther King Jr. national
holiday. They all had different ideas,
and after the dialogue, they decided to
collaborate and execute them together.
As a result, the groups together
had several activities spread out over
a week culminating on the actual holi-
day. "It was the most beautiful collec-

tive effort I've seen among students
in quite a while," she said.
She hopes to pass on to her own
daughter, a University of Minnesota
graduate student, a sense of where she
has come from and a sense of pride in
her heritage.
"(It's important) to never forgetor
be ashamed of one's past. It's impor-
tant to give as much information Ol
where the child has come from, and
let them know about the contributions
(of their ancestors), and how we got
here," she said.
After retirement, Robinson's ma-
jor goal is to travel to all of the parts
of the contiguous United States that
she has not been to, as well as Africa
and the far East.
She hopes to be remembered as*
person "who was the same with ev-
erybody who didn't change my
demeanor for anyone with regard to
where they are located on the social or
economic structure ... as someone
who appreciates the fact that every-
one has something to offer, and takes
the time to find out what it is," she
