LSA Dean Edie Goldenberg said
the college is not upset that it will now
share the stadium with the other schools.
"We have had several wonderful
LSA commencements, but I'm cer-
tain the all-University commencement
will also be wonderful, and it will
address the concerns of students who
want to share a common ceremony
with their friends," she said.
Whitaker said that by moving the
ceremony to the stadium, most schools
will be able to accomodate more guests.
"There was a period where lots of
students did not come, but now the
tradition is back in full force," he said.
Many schools and departments
will hold individual recognition cer-
emonies to honor graduates.
University spokeswoman Lisa
Baker said the individual ceremonies
will still provide the intimacy that
students experienced in smaller col-
lege-specific commencements.
The Rackham School of Graduate

Studies will confer degrees at its own
ceremony April 28 at 3 p.m. in Hill
Auditorium. Non-Rackham graduate
students will take part in unit-specific
ceremonies. Professional schools also
will hold separate commencement
The undergraduate ceremony,
open to all graduating seniors and
guests, will be held April29 at 10 a.m.
MSA President Julie Neenan said
she is pleased with the change be-
cause it encourages class unity.
"We've gone to college together for
the last four years," she said.
Neenan confided that she hopes
the speaker will be either President
Clinton or Vice President Al Gore.
She has written the White House on
behalf of the student body to appeal for
their presence at the April ceremony.
Engineering senior Warren
Johnson said he does not feel cheated
by the University's decision to hold a
combined commencement. "I think
its a good idea because your putting
all your energy into one ceremony
instead of many small ones," he said.

The rally and march were held in
observation of International Human
Rights Day "to protest the racism and
xenophobia" of Proposition 187,
which "denies basic human rights to
basic groups of people," Pothukuchi
LSA junior Sam Copi, 20; who
was attending the protest and holding
a banner that stretched across State
Street, was arrested and charged with
obstructing a police officer and fail-
ure to obey the lawful order of a
police officer.
"There were 20 people in the street
and she picked me out of the crowd,"
Copi asserted. "I was not warned that
I would be arrested."
Dreiling said the police ordered
the crowd off the streets as the march
passed the intersection of South Uni-
versity and State Street, and it spilled
onto the street a second time as the
march neared Liberty Street.
The arrest occurred after the of-
ficer again ordered the protesters to
vacate the street and continue their
march on the sidewalk.

"We shouldn't let (the arrest) dis..
tract us from the cause," Pothukuchi
said. "The rally went on as planned."
The protesters drew from student
groups such as Alianza, Sigma
Lambda Beta and the Public Health
Student Association. They were sup-
ported by Amnesty International, Bi-
cultural Women's Group and at least
20 other groups.
"It was good because a lot ofpeople
that didn't know (about Propositio
187) were really receptive," Cisneros
M-STOP-187 obtained a Univer-
sity permit for the Diag rally and state
and federal permits for the march and
rally in front of the Federal Building,
said Social Work graduate student and
M-STOP-187 member Sara Shuffler.
After the rally, about 25 protesters
trekked to the Ann Arbor Police De*
partment to rally in support of Copi's
release, chanting and marching in front
of the doors, Pothukuchi said.
The group plans additional activi-
ties to protest the law, such as advanc-
ing a petition campaign and holding
educational workshops.
"We don't want this to die. We
want this to keep going because it
affects all groups," Shuffler said.

commemoration of Dr. King's life
work that will always have an activist
component and as a University there
will be an academic component."
Lester P. Monts, vice provost for
academic and multicultural affairs, told
the University Record for an article to
be published today that the panel dis-
cussions are reflective of the themes.
"The panels are designed to allow
dialogue between guest speakers and
the audience. It is within these more

intimate settings that learning can
occur, information can be gathered,
and individuals can express their opin-
ions on the topic being discussed,"
Monts said.
In addition, the BSU will sponsor
its annual MLK Unity March on South
University Avenue. The planning com-
mittee has encouraged each University
department to schedule programs for
the entire week. This list will be re-
leased at the beginning of next term.
Jones-Coleman agreed. "I'm ex-
cited about this year's program," he
said. It is "a great day of events."

investment in an effort to get his net-
work onto the same single-channel
slots as NBC, ABC and CBS.
The lower channels (2-13) are
VHF stations, which generally have a
stronger signal but are mostly occu-
pied by long-established networks.
Murdoch invested $500 billion in
New World Communications, which
owns television stations all across the
country, including Channel 2 in De-
troit, so that affiliates with a better
spot on the dial would carry Fox pro-
Channel 2 had been a CBS affili-
ate owned by New World Communi-
cations, which told CBS that the sta-
tion would carry Fox beginning Dec.
CBS had to find a new station and
purchased the independent Channel
62. The sale still awaits approval from
the Federal Communications Com-
mission. A group of local business
owners had earlier tried to block the
sale of the nation's first Black-owned
TV station.
Channel 50 will still retain some
of Fox's children's programs, like
"Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,"
which are syndicated and will not
transfer to Channel 2.
Most shows will still be shown

during the same time slot. How-
ever, there will be some time
changes. Late-nightTV fans will
notice that the "Late Show with
David Letterman" is now on at 11
p.m. on Channel 62.
Cydni Colquitt, a Channel 50 rep-
resentative, said the move will force
Channel 50 to give up all of its prime
time shows, such as "Melrose Place"
and "The Simpsons," to Channel 2.
Channel 50 plans to fill the gap with
more movies and syndicated program-
Channel 2 has begun offering
seven hours of news throughout the
day. Channel 62, which does not cur-
rently have a news program, will show
all CBS programs, including daytime
soap operas.

line factions of parliament and was
most strongly condemned by demo-
crats normally aligned with President
Boris Yeltsin. They warned that
Yeltsin's resort to military force in an
internal conflict threatened the
country's fragile democracy.
Until late last night, Yeltsin had
been virtually silent on the issue. He
issued a statement calling the action
necessary to prevent a "threat to the
integrity of Russia" by the separatists.
"Our goal is to find a political
solution to the problems in one of the
subjects of the Russian Federation -
the Chechen Republic - and to pro-
tect its citizens from armed extrem-
ism," said Yeltsin's statement.

The secretary provides an orienta-
tion for all new regents and plans and
implements all activities in support of
the regents' role in the governance of
the University.
After members of the board ques-
tioned the recent Nike endorsement
deal, they ordered the secretary to
prepare a summary of the guidelines
behind these contracts.
Cosovich said he hopes to have a

And that is only one of the risks
Yeltsin has incurred by sending troops
toward Grozny.

tensions between Moscow and Grozny
