BLOCKADE
Continued from page 1
"I love Aristide!" he shouted.
Bus drivers doubled their fares to
take advantage of the panic.
Storeowners have increased prices in
anticipation ofthe embargo, which will
take effect unless Haiti's recalcitrant
military agrees to yield power.
Schrager said policymakers con-
sider such a quick concession unlikely.
The United States has told its 1,000
American nationals to be cautious, but
had no plans Sunday to follow the
Canadians in recommending a mass
departure, the U.S. spokesperson said.
A small group of Canadians filed
onto commercial jetliners on Sunday.

COMMITTEES
Continued from page 1
rience, butat the same time ittaught me
I'm not interested in getting involved
in student government that way," Yang
said. "I'd rather get involved the pro-
cess as a student."
Students can serve on MSA's five
committees and eight commissions, in
addition to the15otherUniversitycom-
mittees students can join.
After being appointed by the Cam-
pus Governance Committee and ap-
proved, committee members are re-
quired to attend the committee or com-
mission meetings regularly and submit
a monthly activity report to MSA.
Most committees meet about once
a month and require a commitment of
one to two years. Despite these hefty
obligations, some students see their
work with MSA as ameans to an end.
LSA first-year student Kerry
Cassetta said she volunteered to serve
on a committee because she wanted to
gettoknowMSA before she decidedto
run for an assembly spot.
"I was on the student council in
high school and I wanted to get in-
volved here," Cassetta said. "I'm inter-
ested in politics so I thought student
government would be a way to go."
Cassetta is a part of the Budget
Priorities Committee, which makes rec-
ommendationsregarding allocations of
student funding to the assembly.
"It's a learning experience to see
what's going on," Cassetta said.
Yet some people participate on a
committee for reasons that go beyond
future political advancement. Some
students, including Rackham graduate
student Pam DeMarois, said their main
goal for joining is to help the assembly
create change.
DeMarois said she hopes to use her
position on the Research Policy com-

mittee to produce an atmosphere of
trust forboth undergraduateand gradu-
ate students at the University.
"I'll be doing research here for five
years and I've heard stories about what
happens to graduate students,"
DeMarois said, referring to incidents
in which professors have allegedly
claimed students' work as their own.
Rackham graduate student Melisa
Buie said her decision to join the Cam-
pus Safety committee had more to do
with a specific issue than a general
interest in the student government.
Buie has been a student of martial
arts for eight years and has taught self-
defense for three. "Safety on campus is
a concern of mine," she said.
Buie said North Campus is of spe-
cial concern since many of its path-
ways are located near wooded areas.
"Not only do we need better light-
ing, but there are some places where
there areno sidewalks. There is no way
a woman oraman could escape through
that if they're being chased," Buie
added. "I'd like (MSA) to be aware
these things exist."
LSA junior Barry Hersh said he
volunteered for the Financial Affairs
committee because he is curious about'
how MSA functions at the University.
"As a poli sci major, it's one of my
interests to see how things work -
governments and bureaucracies espe-
cially," Hersh said.
Hersh said he feels more students
should try toparticipate inMSA activi-
ties, whether by running for a position
or joining a committee.
"Each individual that gets involved
brings their own perspective. That's
important at MSA," Hersh said. "If
something is not getting done as it
should, you can change that."
MSA President Craig Greenberg
said he commends students for joining
committees because it is one of the best
ways for students tohave input in MSA.

CON FERENCE

and what message that conveys about
us," Bedore-White said.
Heins representedJacobsen and the
other artists involved in the exhibit.
She claimed students decided to re-
move the videotape without viewing it
because they were influenced bya pom-
plaint reported by Law school Prof.

Catharine MacKinnon.
"What went on here was acquies-
cence on the part of the students to the
threats and complaints of outside third
parties.... The fact the students re-
moved the tape withouteven viewing it
suggests that they felt MacKinnon had
decided, whether or not she said so,
that the tape had to go," she said.
Heins asserted that, since students
were acting under aprofessor'sadvise-
ment, they are agents of the University.

This would render their decision an
action of the state, rather than a private
organization.
Maura Scott, a second-year Law
school student and member of the
Michigan Journal of Gender and Law,
disagreed with Heins' claim.
"The journal is composed of mem-
bers with diverse points of view. And
contrary to the representation of the
ACLU, we made our decision without
the influence of Catharine MacKinnon
WOO
Continued from page 1
These attempts to bridge color bar-
riers have caused some rifts within the
L.A. Asian American community,
which only gave Woo 65 percent of its
vote during the mayoral election, as
opposed to the 85 percent of African
Americans who supported Woo. Some
of Woo's Asian American constituents
have interpreted his attempts at reach-
ing out to the African American com-
munity as an abandonment of his own.
Friday, Woo also spoke about is-
sues specifically aimed at the Asian
American community. He said it is
important fordifferentethnicities within
this group to build stronger ties and
consolidate support in order for issues
relevant to Asian Americans to be ad-
dressed.-
He added that, although Asian
Americans have enjoyed considerable
professional and financial success, there
is a lack of Asian Americans in politics
and community leadership positions.
While this scarcity is partly due to
reasons beyond control, such as rac-
ism, Woo indicated other obstacles are
put into place by Asian Americans
themselves. Many Asian American

South Quad, notorious for its 3 a.m.
false fire alarms and numerous drills,
had a real fire yesterday afternoon.s:
Students groaned as the oh-so-fa
miliar whine of the alarms resonated
through the residence hall a little afte
1 p.m. They filed slowly out of the
building, some lingering in theirrooms
as long as five minutes after the alarm
first sounded.
The fire occurred in the loading0
dock when several magazines in a trash
compactor were ignited. The fire was
small enough that the single truck sent
from the Ann Arbor Fire Department
(AAFD) was able to handle it:
Firefighters pulled the magazines out
of the dumpster and stamped out the
flames.
Inspectors on the scene could not
be reached for comment on the safety0
of the trash compactors, or the threat of
similar fires in the future.
AAFD Lt. Ed Knieper did say that
steps would be taken to correct the
problem.
Students were indifferent. Wheli
Mike Chen, an LSA first-year student;
heard the alarms, he "just kind of hung
around in the stairwell for a while.
Then I ran back up to my room to get
my Frisbee. I didn't think it was a real0
fire, so I might as well enjoy my time
outside.
"I guess I'm kind of blase about it
now.... We'vehadsomany fire alan
beforeand they weren'treal,"he added
or any other feminist theorist," Scott
said.
Scott allowed that symposium or-,
ganizers could have made mistakes in
the way they executed their decision, S
but said the possible errors did not
infringe upon Jacobsen'sFirst Amend-
ment rights.
"We were rude and arguably we
broke her contract, but we did not vio-
late her constitutional right to free ex-
pression," she said.
parents have not encouraged their chil-
dren to go into "risky" professions such
as politics, he said.
He expressed hope that as Asian
American college enrollment contin-
ues to increase, more people will stay
after graduation and play a greater role
in the community.
Students reacted enthusiastically to
Woo's remarks. "I guess what sticks
out in my mind was that he was basi-
cally telling us to lead the life we want
to lead, and do what it takes," said
Engineering senior Christine Tom.
College of Pharmacy junior Jenny
Wang was also impressed by Woo's
comments. "I thought his remarks were
very helpful," she said. "I liked his
enforcement about working with othe
ethnic groups to form a coalition."
Woo, who is presently teaching a
one-semester non-credit course at
Harvard University's Kennedy School0
of Government, said he does not have
concrete plans for his return to Los
Angeles in December, but is consider-
ing television or radio commentary, a
private business venture, or running
for a statewide office.
Woo was brought to the University
campus by The United Asian Ameri-
can Organizations.
