In an emergency meeting yesterday, the
Michigan Student Assembly agreed to provide
$2,000 to the Ann Arbor Tenants' Union
(AATU), a fraction of the interim funding re-
Last year, MSA allocated $24,320 to AATU.
MSA members who support the tenants'
union obtained a temporary restraining order
from the Central Student Judiciary (CSJ). The
order prevents MSA from spending money,
until a hearing can be held.
AATU supporters allege that several MSA
members were not duly informed of the meet-

CSJ will hear the case at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
In a move led by Michigan Party members,
funds that had been cut from the internal budget
in order to fund AATU were transferred into
MSA's Student Lobbying Fund, which now
totals $26,750. The assembly approved its ex-
ternal budget, 12-10, leaving no additional funds
Only 23 members attended-the minimum
needed to conduct a meeting.
MSA has allocated $2,000 from its surplus
and reserve budget for the tenants' union.
"I personally think (AATU) received $2,000
more than they should have. That's $2,000
more than any other student organization has
received from MSA (in this manner)," said
MSA Vice President Jacob Stern.
LSA Rep. Jonathan Freeman said he made
a last-ditch effort to compromise.
"I offered a compromise to Julie (Neenan,
MSA president,) an hour before this meeting,"
The compromise included raising the stu-
dent fee by five cents, and taking money from
the surplus budget and distributing it between
the lobbying fund and the AATU, he said.
"Obviously, Julie doesn't want to be an effec-
tive leader, and didn't want to compromise ...
Neenan could not be reached for comment.
Freeman said the assembly members who
support AATU would find a way to restore
Pattrice Maurer, AATU coordinator, said "I
think there's going to be a move to contest the
vote. In my opinion, a vote of 12-10 cannot
possibly be considered appropriate. Even if it
meets the letter of their rules, it violates the
spirit of democracy."
"(The tenants' union) are committed to find
a way to continue to provide our services to
students. We will work to get our funding
restored by any means necessary," she contin-
Several students attended the meeting in
hopes to speak in favor of AATU funding, but
could not, since the emergency meeting did not
provide constituents' time, as normal meetings
Michelle Dawson, an LSA senior, said, "As
a constituent, as a student and as a person who
has been interested in MSA, I really do not
understand what purpose this meeting served."
She pointed to the "senseless arguing" of the
assembly, and the close vote as evidence that
there is still dissent among assembly members.
"I believe that any funding AATU needs, it
should be allotted, because it is an invaluable
service," she continued.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - A
grenade attack on a pro-democracy
demonstration yesterday killed at least
five people and wounded more than 30
in a bloody act of resistance by Haiti's
military dictatorship and its murderous
The killings came on the eve of the
third anniversary of the violent over-
throw of the country's only democrati-
cally elected president, Jean-Bertrand
Aristide, whose impending return has
been marked repeatedly in recent days
by sneak attacks, beatings and shootings
of his supporters.
According to witnesses, hundreds
of demonstrators marching between
downtown and the city's airport were
passing a warehouse owned by Lt.Col.
Michel-Joseph Francois, Haiti's feared
police chief and a leader of the ruling
military junta, when at least one gre-
nade was thrown from a car that may
have emerged from the building.
Paradoxically, Francois, one of the
three Haitian officers who have ruled
Haiti with violence and corruption since
the coup, was reported by friends and
U.S. military sources to have packed
up his office and was preparing to leave
the country within days.
Francois thus would be the first of
the three Haitian military leaders to
accede to U.S. and U.N. demands that
they leave power or face punishment

Aristide returns to power.
But there were two glaring ab-
stentions - Brazil and Russia.
Brazil abstained as a protest
against foreign troops occupying a
Latin American country. Russia
abstained because it said the
Clinton administration was too
hasty in pushing a resolution
through the Council before Haiti's
military leaders had been removed
and Aristide restored.
The Russian abstention was a
surprise. But Russian Ambassador
Sergei V. Lavrov expressed his
displeasure that the Council had
not even received an assurance
from the United States that the
Haitian military leaders would
leave Haiti. And he noted sharply

January 1999.1n the middle'of his
first term, Republican President Colin
Powell takes the podium to speak on
the State of the Union.
He tells us the ranks of those with-
out health care have grown steadily,
administrative costs are out of hand
and the cost of good health coverage is
rising for all Americans. He lays it on
the line: America needs to change its
health care system significantly. Now.
Of course, it is only speculation
that Powell is Republican, and he
may not run for president.
But after Senate Majority Leader
George Mitchell ,l his week pro-'
nounced health care reform dead for

scenarios for reform, University ex-
With major Republican gains ex-
pected in both houses of Congress, the
consensus is that Washington has
missed a window of opportunity for
meaningful health care reform, but law-
makers will be forced to deal with the
issue again in a few years.
"Many people believe that in 1994,
the conditions for major reform to
happen were as good as they can get,"
said Leon Wyszewianski, an associ-
ate professor in the Department of
Health Services Management and
"Since nothing happened, most
people expect that the immediate fu-
ture will bring incremental changes."
Political Science Prof. John
Campbell predicted, "There will be
really substantial health-care reform
within the next five years."

College students face a greater increase in expenses each
year than most Americans because tuition rises at twice the
rate of inflation, according to a report released Wednesday.
The average tuition at America's four-year colleges rose
6 percent this year, according to the College Board, an
association of 2,800 higher-education institutions.
Inflation last year was 2.7 percent and is projected to stay
the same this year, said Jaquline King, a spokeswoman for
the College Board.
For a typical University of Michigan student, tuition rose
6.9 percent this year, marking the fourth time out of the past
five years that the University tuition increase has outpaced
the national average.
"The national average looks at schools that are not like
the University of Michigan," said Julie Peterson, director of
news and information for the University.
"It's interesting to look at the average but it doesn't
really mean very much," Peterson said.
