bate was increasing student involve-

Independent presidential candidate
Christian Payne said the assembly
should involve more students.
"It's time for all of the parties to put
aside political persuasions and start
making the Michigan Student Assem-
bly more accessible to students," he
Benjamin Bolger, the Protest
Party's candidate for president, also
said the assembly should increase its
focus on students.
Pointing to his University ID card,
Bolger said, "This is a student and
we've forgotten what students are."
The Michigan Party's presidential
candidate Julie Neenan said, "A lot of
people don't know what's out there for
fhe students to benefit from MSA."
But Saura Sahu, the DO Party's
presidential candidate, had a differ-

Lou Antieau does not file charges.
A single amendment proposed by
LSA sophomore Pradnya Parulekar,
and signed by 500 students, would
extend the statute of limitations of the
code from six months to one year.
Parulekar said at the aborted hearing
in February that the extension would
be ideal to allow students adequate
time to file cases, especially when
they are off-campus for summer or
are victims of assault.
The student jurors will ultimately
decide the format for the evening.
LSA junior Randy Schwemmin will
moderate. The time will most likely
be split between the verbal proposal
of an amendment or group of amend-
ments, rebuttal, questions from the
student jurors and public comments.
Schwemmin, the Student Leader
Board coordinator and president-elect
of University Activities Center, said
he is encouraged that the 26 jurors
have signed up to attend. "I'm glad to
see that the people who are involved
don't think that this is a waste of
time," Schwemmin said.
The public hearing will be held
this evening from 6-8:30 in Room
120 Hutchins Hall in the Law School.
The Office of Student Affairs requests
that anyone wishing to speak at the
hearing contact the office.

He credited Clinton's campaign
visit at a "pivotal moment" two weeks
ago with sparking a comeback in a
race that was considered too close to
call even on election eve.
Cullerton, an attorney with 15
years of experience in the state legis-
lature, conceded defeat last night.
Alderman Bernard Hansen, a
Cullerton adviser, said a turnout of 55
percent of the district's voters would
have been needed to achieve an upset
victory over Rostenkowski.
"Simpson's the spoiler," Hansen
told a reporter, referring to the candi-
date who ran third in the five-way

said. "The students have the answers
and that's what we want to get back to."
Despite the amount of time the as-
sembly has spent on the Ann Arbor
Tenants' Union (AATU) issue since
last September, the issue went almost
unnoticed last night.
Several candidates reaffirmed their
support for the pro-tenants organiza-
tion, but no one gave reasons and no
AATU opponents discussed the issue.
During the friendly debate, each
candidate spoke for only about 11
The Statement of Student Rights
and Responsiblities, however, was dis-
cussed after the candidates were ques-
tioned on their position on the code of
non-academic conduct. Most of the
candidates explained their opposition
to the code.
But Outsider Party presidential can-
didate Trevor Moeller said he sees the
need for such a code.
"We do not think the code should
be abolished. This code is not going to
go away," Moeller said. "What's real-
istic is we're going to have to vote in a
strong student government that has a
detailed plan to work on the code."
Most of the candidates said there is
a need for meeting often with Univer-
sity administrators, such as Vice Presi-
dent for Student Affairs Maureen A.
Hartford, but Masely disagreed.
"We intend to build a movement of
people independent of the administra-
tion," Masley said. "It's going to take

Last year, the Michigan Party, which
has been endorsed by the Conservative
Coalition, helped increase student
group funding by $15,000 under the
leadership of its candidate for vice presi-
dent, Jacob Stern.
Staff members from the Black Stu-
dent Monthly, The Michigan Daily,
the Michigan Independent and the
Michigan Review posed questions to
the candidates in the debate, sponsored

"As students walk through the
Diag, as they do all the time during
the day, they notice, 'Wow, this is
still going on,' and I think it raises
consciousness more than a sign (with
names) in front of the LSA Building,"
said RC sophomore Darone Ruskay,
a coordinator of the event.
He said that he believes that the
vigil is more effective than even a
speech commemorating the dead, be-
cause at most, a speaker reaches 300

it as the major factor that brought him
to the polls last night. He said he has
been waiting six months to cast a vote
to permanently abolish Michigan's
high property taxes.
Morgan said the two-cent sales
tax hike will be easy to swallow.
"I hardly notice the sales tax as it
is," he said. "I don't think (the in-

Engler called the passage a big
win for Michigan.
"We've fought the cynics and been

Yesterday's election wrote an end-
ing to a school finance upheaval that
erupted in July. That's when lawmak-
ers adopted an amendment offered by
state Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Lan-
sing) to wipe out the use of property
taxes for school operations.
An opponent of the sales tax plan
said voters will feel cheated when the
outcome hits their pocketbooks.

Stabenow, another Democratic
gubernatorial hopeful who backed the
income tax alternative, downplayed
the significance of the vote.
"The most important thing is prop@
erty tax relief and providing for our
schools. That happened in December.
We're going to have some work to do
to make it work," she said.

the public's dislike of the income tax.
