POSTERS-
Continued from page 1
Raymond also criticized the Col-
lege Republicans for using scare tac-
tics to broadcast its messages to stu-
dents.
"They're spreading ideas that
strike terror in people's hearts,"
'Raymond said. "Their wording is sup-
posed to affect people's emotions....
'That kind of language is academi-
cally wrong." -
Damoose said the posters are a
representation of what the College
Republicans see as the best solution
to the AIDS crisis, highlighting the
group's point of view toward the dis-
'ease and its causes.
"(The posters) are not supposed to
be negative," Damoose said. "We
believe AIDS should not be a sur-
prise. It's the result of the downfall of
values."
Damoose said he did not under-
stand the reasoning behind Gay
Liberation's counterattack.
"Their posters in response were a
little illogical," the LSA senior said.
:"We're not trying to think for people,
but to get people to think for them-
selves."
Lesbian Gay Male Bisexual Pro-
grams Office staffer Jim Toy said he
disagreed with the idea that family
values could be seen as a cure for AIDS.
"Science, we hope, will find a
cure. To imply that there is but one set

of 'family values' seems irrespon-
sible at best, particularly when the
statement in and of itself is stigmatiz-
ing and harassing," Toy said.
BillrLowry, state chair of the College
Republicans and LSA senior, said he
agreed with Damoose's stand on AIDS.
"The College Republicans want
to change the framework of the (AIDS)
debate," Lowry said. "It's a prevent-
able disease. It'snot like polio then or
cancer now where we don't know
how to stop it.
"(The poster) gets to the core of
conservative beliefs - that individu-
als have to take responsibility for their
own values," he continued. "The gov-
ernmentcan'tsolve all our problems."
University Alum Rusty Brach said
he found the College Republicans'
posters offensive, but within the
group's First Amendment rights.
"In a way, it's kind of funny. I
wouldn'ttake them seriously," he said.
"(The College Republicans) try to
push theirown agenda and view point
and I guess they have that right."

POLICE CHIEF

neighborhood by neighborhood,"
Smith said.
He added that he was surprised by
the welcome given the new program
by AAPD officers. "The officers saw
this as a very positive way of doing
business. They are actually driving
the process and expanding it much
quicker than I ever anticipated."
Smith said the program aims to
encompass more traditional aspects
of police work while making use of
new technology to make AAPD more
efficient and at the same time "more
user-friendly."
"We should be recognized as a
facilitator, not as a monolith that is
out there to do unto the people," he
added.
Both Smith and Ann Arbor Mayor
Ingrid Sheldon agreed that the policy
has received high marks from both
the City Council and Ann Arbor resi-
dents.
"He's really taken the lead with
the community-oriented policing,"
Sheldon said, adding that she gives
Smith good marks on his performance
to date.
"I have very high regard for him
and for the job he's doing," she said.
Sheldon and Smith both pointed
to the limited resources available to
AAPD as a constraint on the options
open to the department.
Relations between AAPD and the
University seem to have improved
during his tenure, Smith said.
He said increased interaction be-
tween AAPD and the student leader-
ship has led to "reduced negative in-
teractions with the students.
"The officers have to be aware
that for the most part these kids are
well-educated, they're involved, a lot
of them are intoxicated, they're also
highly intelligent," Smith said.
"In dealing with that population
you've got to be very patient. We
have to show a tremendous restraint
in the interaction with students ---
because we're going to getquestioned.
And we have to be willing to answer
questions," he added.
Smith said he feels the relation-
ships AAPD has developed with the
Interfraternity Council (IFC) and the
Michigan Student Assembly, among
other groups, are very important in

aiding the department's dealings with
the University student body and in
fostering ties between town and gown.
Smith cited as a positive develop-
ment the fact that student representa-
tives were on the rooftops of South
University Avenue buildings with
AAPD officers at the gatherings fol-
lowing last springs NCAA basketball
tournament games.
He added that in order for student
leaders and police to cooperate on
such potentially dangerous issues, "it
was essential (for student leaders) to
understand what calls we were mak-
ing."
MSA President Craig Greenberg
said he has had a good working rela-
tionship with Smith so far during his
tenure.
"He's made a very good effort in
dealing with students and valuing their
opinions. He respects our perspec-
tive," Greenberg said of Smith.
IFC President Polk Wagner ech-
oed Greenberg's opinion of Smith.
"He's been a real good friend to
the Greek system," Wagner said, add-
ing that Smith has done an excellent
job of keeping the lines of communi-
cation between Greeks and AAPD
open.
Smith said the presence of stu-
dents in the town generates many
small crimes such as burglaries.
"Just-off-campus housing devel-
ops a lot of property crimes, and stu-
dents are going to be easy victims ..
they're easy prey," he added.
Robert Pifer, associate director of
the University Department of Public
Safety (DPS), said he and his depart-
ment have a good working relation-
ship with Smith and AAPD.
"We get along excellent with him
and his department," Pifer said. "Doug
Smith is an excellent guy to work
with," he added.
Pifer said he and DPS Director
Leo Heatley have scheduled monthly
meetings with Smith, and usually end
up having an additional two or three
meetings a week.
Smith agreed that the working re-
lationship between AAPD and DPS is
good and has improved in the past
few years.
He added that having a depu-
tized University police force is help-
ful to AAPD because it allows the
department to concentrate on other
tasks.

ing for community service programs
so "University students, faculty, ad-
ministration, staff and local residents
will be employed in programs de-
signed to engender a sense of social
responsibility and meet community
need."
Like participants in the
"Americorps" service projects, stu-
dents will receive a $4,725 stipend for
college, free child care, 85 percent of
health care costs and a monthly sti-
pend of around $650 during one year
of service. In total, the value of pack-
age would be more than $10 per hour.
The University was represented
by three vice presidents, the chair of
its task force on community service
and several student members of the
task force.
Barry Checkoway, task force chair
and School of Social Work professor,
said he was pleased with yesterday's
meeting.
Checkoway said the University
would begin working on acommunity
service proposal to submit under Sec-
tion B2 by March 1.

women, only 3 percent of the skilled
trades people and none of the

University's operating engineers are

Advisory Commission on Women's
Issues.
Students have taken their own
steps to enlarge the pool of female
engineers. The Society of Women
Engineers (SWE) is one of the largest
organizations in the Engineering
school.

nated engineering school oppressive.
"There's a very noticeable feeling
of contempt for women expressed by
white males, because they feel that we
will have an easier time finding jobs,"
said Sarah Middleton, aCivil andEnvi-
ronmental Engineering junior.
Whether or not this is true is debat-
able; on the one hand women are being
strongly pursued by industry. Nancy
Badore, employee relations manager
of Ford Motor Company, stated in an
article in Woman Engineer that Ford
does actively recruit female engineer-
ing students.
But some University students are
still pessimistic.
Mechanical Engineering sopho-
more Katie Meng said she experi-
enced the challenges that face female
engineers while working as an intern
in the engineering department of a
small corporation this summer.
"Out of six summer interns, I was
the only woman - the only other
females in the building were the sec-
retaries." Her second year there, Meng
was asked by a male employee, "Oh,
you're still in engineering? They
haven't weeded you out yet?"
Engineering Prof. Mary Brake said

Amanda Parke, an Albion Co1
lege junior who came to yesterday's*
meeting, said she though "re-instill
ing idealism" was the most important
aspect of the plan.
"We need to convince students
that they can make a difference," she
said.
Stan Levy, a vice president for
student affairs at the University 6f
Illinois, said he thinks the act pro-
vides an unique opportunity to shad
the future.
"We have the chance to mold a gen-
enion in the service ethic,"Levysaid.'
University of Michigan Regent
Philip Power (D-Ann Arbor) wel-
comed the "firepower assembled"and
recalled his own community serVite
at the University.
He served as a founding student
member of the American Council f(3
World Responsibility, a group which0
was interested in sending volunteers
abroad to serve in developing nations'.
The concept was passed on to a
speechwriter for then-presidential
candidate Sen. John Kennedy, who
embraced the idea and first proposed
the "Peace Corps" at 2:15 am. in a
celebrated speech on the steps of the
Michigan Union in October 1960.
she has seen similar attitudes. "Some-
times I feel that (male students) don't
respect me. They say things to me that
they wouldn't dare say to older, male
professors.... They don't see many
women faculty members."
Fortunately, many women say the}
are inspired to work even harder when
faced with sexism.
"Because (women) are such a
minority, they either feel rightly or
not rightly that they have to push to
get ahead," said Mechanical Engi-
neering senior David Zaret.
Middleton agreed that women dd
have to push to achieve, battling ndt
only the exhaustive course load but
conditioned thinking as well.
"I think there are fewer women;int
engineering because traditionally it
was a field for men, and that from an*
early age women are subtly or not
subtly discouraged from going into
the sciences," she said.
With regards to the new genera-
tion of female engineering students,
Engineering Prof. David Martin
stated, "I find that some of my bid(
students are women ... I don't think
their ability has anything to do with
which bathroom they go into."
