succeeded - education," Rivers said.
"And it has to be here for everyone."
Rivers' campaign staff announced
yesterday that the first-term state legis-
lator has secured the endorsement of
EMILY, a roster of politicians who
support women's issues. Candidates
on the Early Money Is Like Yeast list
draw additional funding from liberal
and feminist groups.
EMILY's endorsement will likely
add at least $40,000 to Rivers' cam-
paign coffers, she estimated. Rivers
Raid she hopes to raise $300,000.
Her Democratic opponents in the
Aug. 2 primary are attorney Fultan
Eaglin and David Geiss, an aide to
outgoing U.S. Rep. William Ford (D-
Ypsilanti Township).

Ford is stepping down after three
decades in office. Rivers said she and
Ford share at least two traits: "I too, am
short and feisty."
Speakers preceding Rivers praised
her for her down-to-earth style and
unwavering stands on issues.
"I had the opportunity to work with
Lynn in the schools and I found her to
be outstanding-clearly the bestof the
school board members I worked with,"
said LeRoy Cappaert, a veteran admin-
istrator . "You never have to second-
guess where Lynn Rivers is coming
from. I think that's an uncommon trait."
Rivers tailored her campaign mes-
sage to University students in an inter-
view with the Daily yesterday.
She vowed to fight for a larger pool
of federal student loans, which she said
have been jeopardized by conservative
fiscal practices.

tee that women and minorities were
equally considered."
When asked by a staff member if
they would go back into the pool if they
were left with five white male finalists,
Brewer refused to speculate.
The committee will not choose one
candidate. It will forward a list of three
to five names to Vice President for
Student Affairs Maureen A. Hartford
who then will make the final decision.
Robert C. Hughes, who was Hous-
ing director for 16 years, was removed
from his position by Hartford in March
to assume a new position in the Office
of Development.
In response to criticisms from staff
members present, committee members
said at least one more public forum
would be scheduled in the summer,
primarily for staff members.
Three students serve on the advi-
sory committee formed in March, in-
cluding MSA President Julie Neenan.
The Office of Student Affairs hopes
to have the new Housing Director in
place by September 1.

BOSNIA

air attacks on Serb forces around
Gorazde. He renewed his call for an
end to the U.N. ban on arms shipments
to Bosnia's Muslim-led government.
U.N. officials said little would be
gained by calling more NATO air
strikes like the limited raids over the
past week that did not blunt the Serb
offensive.
The only military officer in Gorazde
to guide NATO planes was among
seven British officers evacuated at
dawn, U.N. officials said.
Hampered by that muddled sense
of purpose and lack of will, the United
Nations could do little but express out-
rage at the Serb attacks on Gorazde,
one of six "safe areas" declared by the
Security Council a year ago.
In New York, U.N. spokesman Joe
Sills said U.N. workers in Gorazde
reported heavy shelling of the town
about 35 miles southeast of Sarajevo.
"The defenses have collapsed. There
are intentional and indiscriminate at-
tacks on civilians," he said.
U.N. staff said thousands of people

were campedhin the streets because
they lacked shelter.
"People are trying to hide in every
conceivable safe place, obviously to no
avail," said Ron Redmond of the U.N.
High Commissioner for Refugees in
Geneva. "People are literally exposed
to any shelling, sniper fire, machine-
gun fire.... People are terrified."
Shells fell at a rate of one every 20
seconds during the morning, but slowed
to one a minute by midafternoon, said
Redmond.
Bosnian Serb forces said they had
taken over most of the Gorazde en-
clave, apart from the center of town and
a stretch of 4 to 5 miles along the
northern bank of the Drina.
Aid officials said 302 people had
been killed and 1,075 wounded since
the Serbs began their attacks on the
Gorazde enclave three weeks ago. Sills
said about half the dead were children
and more than 100 were women and
the elderly.
Bosnia's war began in April 1992,
and Bosnian Serbs rebelled and took
control of about 70 percent of the re-
public. At least 200,000 people are
dead or missing.

CATHY

"My mother went to the library and
wrote out a list of where I should send
my drawings," Guisewite said. Uni-
versal Press Syndicate bought the rights
to her drawings right away.
"Then I had to frantically try to
learn how to draw and write for com-
ics," she said.

Guisewite said attending the Uni-
versity had been a lifelong dream for
her.
"When I was young, my family
took a trip," she said. "Passing through
Ann Arbor, my mom said, 'Maybe
you'll go there someday.' I thought it
was the most beautiful place I'd ever
seen; it looked just like what I thought
a college campus was supposed to."
Guisewite called the years she spent

at the University a time of change and
transition.
"When I entered as a freshman
woman, we were wearing skirts and
sweaters," she said. "When I gradu-
ated, we were flower children wearing
earthy sandals. The whole look and
feel changed in four years."
She said visiting the University is a
rich emotional experience.
"Your college years are an impor-
tant time in your life. Visiting, you see
the same buildings and you walk on the
same sidewalks."
Guisewite said she was thrilled to
be returning to speak for commence-
ment April 30.
"I remember my own graduation as
being such agreat event in my life, such

ket, publishers have begun to produce
new editions more often. "I have seen
the time between editions shrink,"
Gorecki said. In the last two decades,
the update cycle has shrunk from every
five years to every one-to-three years
for a new edition.
With the new editions out, students
find themselves reluctantly adding
many of textbooks to their personal
libraries.
Mostprofessors use the newest edi-
tion of a text for their courses. Chem-
istry lecturer Brian Coppola said that
he uses the latest edition of the chemis-
try text for classes of 1,200 students
each term. That leaves 1,200 copies of
the old edition text for the students to
keep for themselves.
"There are some professors that
will stick with the old editions," Scheel
said, "but they are forced into buying
the new edition if it is more than six
months out of print."
If the classes are small enough, the
bookstores will sometimes be able to
get enough copies of an old edition for
a class.
Part of the high cost of textbooks
has to do with the fact that, according to
the Association of American Publish-
ers, 17.4 percent of the cost of text-
books is in marketing. Of that 17.4
percent, 2.9 percent is the cost of pro-
viding professors with free copies.

would ever convict Kevorkian after
watching the videotape.
"We're going to have a trial here in
which there's no victim. Not only is
there no victim, butthe alleged victim's
family finds the prosecution reprehen-
sible," Fieger said. "Something's
wrong here."
Jackson warned Fieger against en@
couragingjurors from disregarding their
oath to uphold the law and instead
acquit Kevorkian based on their per-
sonal sympathies.
"Certainly one could try to appeal
to the emotions," Jackson told the law-
yers. "I would order now that there be
nothing that would even remotely in-
vite the jury not to follow their oath."
Fieger also plans to ask whether
prospective jurors know that three cir-@
cuit judges have overturned the as-
sisted suicide law as unconstitutional.
Those three rulings are pending
before the Michigan Court of Appeals.
Kevorkian, who attended the hear-
ing, has been present at 20 deaths since

a turning pointin life," she said. "To be
part of that day for a whole new group
of people, especially at the same school
that was so critical in my life."
However, many students are un-
happy with the University's choice to
bring Guisewite as the keynote speaker,
comparing her with recent speakers
such as first lady Hillary Rodham
Clinton and President Bush. Com-
mencement Committee Chair Ralph
Williams said he is pleased Guisewit
will be speaking at commencement.
"Over the years I've seen strips
she's done. 'Cathy' invites us to step
back from ourown obsesions and laugh
at ourselves.
"I think she will give a perspective
of warmth and irony," he said.
their book - a contract worth thou-
sands of dollars for a large class -
publishers will often give professors
free copies.
"Publishers have come around to
the bookstores, after having flooded
the campus with desk copies, asking us
not to buy the books back," Scheel
said.
A former Ulrich's employee said
professors often come in to sell back
used books, which can lower the amount@
of money given for used books.
If students want to get more money
for their new edition books, they should
pressure the professors to turn in their
orders on time, Scheel said. "The fac-
ulty doesn't listen tome, if the students
talk to the administration they could
pressure theprofessors to get the orders
in on time," Scheel said.
In some universities, professors are
required to turn in their textbook selec-
tions to an administrator by a certain
date. That is not the case at the Univer-
sity. Textbooks are not adopted for a
set length of time, either. Books for the
same course may change from semes-
ter to semester, again leaving students
holding their old textbooks.
With computer disks and other
material being included in more books
these days, publishers are making it
more difficult to buy and sell used
books. Without being able to verify the
conditionof these materials, bookstores
are reluctant to purchase them. Pub-

lishers will not sell copies of the extra
material without the accompanying
book.

Share your experience!

The University Mentorship Program needs
students who are sophomores, juniors, and
seniors during the 1994-1995 academic year to
serve as mentors. The Mentorship Program is
designed to give incoming students the chance to
connect with two different people-mentors- who
are knowledgeable about the University and who
share their academic and career interests.
Mentors are volunteers who guide by sharing
their experience and their knowledge of the
University. Mentors provide their "mentees" with
insight on what it takes to be successful at the
University and in future careers, along with the

support and encouragement to help them meet their
goals.
As a mentor, you will be paired with a faculty or staff
member with whom you'll share mentoring duties.
You'll also be matched with two or more mentees-
incoming first year students. All of you will be
matched by academic or career interests.
We need mentors who are committed to helping
other students make the most of their years at
Michigan, and the opportunity to develop a one-on-
one relationship with a faculty or staff person.
