articles in the Daily had threatened to
sue both the University and the Daily.
One such article detailed the theft
of a tree.
In November, University Depart-
ment of Public Safety officers appre-
hended seven students stealing a tree
near the Coliseum. The students were
charged with theft by University police.
The students were also separately
charged under the code for theft. While
the University wanted to keep the
names of the accused confidential, the
names had already been released by
To further avoid such disclosures,
the University has decided to keep the
details of code cases locked away. _
This latest move has been met with
criticism from both members of the
Board of Regents and students.
Regent Rebecca McGowan (D-
Ann Arbor) said she was surprised by
the decision and that she expected to
be informed officially soon.
"I was under the impression that if
I wanted to, I could walk into the
Office of Student Services (sic) and
say 'I want to read about the code,'
and now I can't."
McGowan was hesitant to say that
the University was in violation of the
code until she "had heard the
But Brian Kight, MSA vice presi-
dent, said he believes the University is
in blatant violation of the code."
"The Office of Student Affairs has
unilaterally decided to keep private
these records. It is the public's loss,
not just the Daily's."
Regent Philip Power (D-Ann Ar-
bor) said this development was "un-

have to look at some kind of disclo-
sure which will protect privacy,"
Power said. But he added that he has

University officials claim that
former editors of the Daily entered
into an agreement not to publish names.
Lew Morrissey, the University's
Freedom of Information officer, said
he was under the impression that the
editors of the Daily had entered into
an agreement not to print the names of
students brought up under the code.
Former Daily Editor in Chief Josh
Dubow, said the then-editors had
"never made any such agreement."

In denying the request for the docu-
ments, the University's FOIA officer,

Morrissey and other University
officials have read Conlin's order as a
"penalty" to be "paid" to the News

He said no other media organiza-

Following this, the meeting split
in half, with AATU supporters on one
side of the room and the rest of the
assembly on the other.
LSA Rep. Brian Clune made a
motion to suspend the rules, which
takes a two-thirds vote, to consider
recalling MSA's appointees to the
AATU board. Clune's motion failed
in a 13-7 vote.
RC junior Donna Bryan, a mem-
ber of Queer Action, said she is con-
cerned about the issue.
"If these members continue to be
on the AATU board, you're going to
find a lot of resistance among your
constituents," she said.
Public Health Rep. Meg Whittaker
said AATU needs to accept the
mediator's report. She said the lef
wing representatives on MSA need
work to have more liberals appointed
to AATU's board.
"They beat us to the punch and
we're going to have to learn to live
with it," she said.
AATU supporters continued gath-
ering, and Greenberg attempted to
continue with the meeting. But in the
beginning of the agenda, House mad

Greenberg said since no one ob-

grees of experience and interaction
with so-called "gangsta rap" music.
The term "gangsta rap" is often
used to refer to rap music with violent
or sexist lyrics and has spurred na-
tionwide debate and media attention.
Panelist David Bomar, a graduate
of Eastern Michigan University and
active volunteer in Detroit's inner city,
commented that the definition of this
term has been blurred.
"'Gangsta rap' is a title that has
been put on every type of rap," he
said. "All rap is not 'gangsta rap."'
The discussion began with each
panelist answering one or two prear-
ranged questions concerning issues such
as media attention, violent lyrics and
community response to rap music.
Most agreed that while negative
images of African Americans in gen-
eral - specifically African American
women - do exist in rap, the words
merely signify larger societal problems.
"Music for African Americans has
been a way to express their hopes and
beliefs since being brought to th'
country," said panel member an
School of Nursing Prof. Elizabeth
Allen. "Right now African American
youths are in extreme crisis."
Another panelist, LSA senior Ain
Boone, agreed. "You can'tjustchange
the music and expect to change the
people," she said.
In the second hour of the program,
audience members commented an

calized views similar to those of the

Police also are prepared to deal
with larger outbreaks of violence.
Under a county-wide mutual aid pact,
officers from other departments would

But tear gas and batons aren't the
only weapons against post-game vio-
lence. MSA and University officials
are cooperating on events beginning
Friday to provide alternatives to
drunken post-game revelry.
"We want to provide a support
mechanism for the team that people
want to do instead of going out and
getting blitzed," said Vice President

Harrison. "We did a similar thing last
