tween the director of the Institute of
Public Policy Studies and Mr. Wolpe.
We consider those terms to be appro-
priate and reasonable," Baker said.
Regent Rebecca McGowan (D-
Ann Arbor) dismissed Horning's as-
sertion on the nature of the hiring.
"Mr. Horning is no student of his-
tory. I believe when Mr. Wolpe was
hired to teach the board was made up
of four members of the Republican
Party and four members of the Demo-
cratic Party," McGowan said.
"It's the members of the Michigan
faculty who make the decisions of
whom to hire to teach and what the
salary will be. That will continue at
the University of Michigan no matter
who is serving on the Board of Re-
gents. Thank goodness."
Wolpe holds a doctorate from the
Massachusetts Institute of Technol-
ogy and was an associate professor at
Western Michigan University from
1967-72. After leaving Congress in
1992, he returned to teaching.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Ar-
bor) said he would wait to see the
specific allegations before deciding
whether the regents should look into
the matter.
He said it was not unusual for the
University to employ former mem-
bers of Congress, but the hiring still
may have been a partisan move.
"If you were to review over the
number of years the names of indi-
viduals who were ex-officeholders, it
would appear that more Democratic
officeholders have been employed
than Republican officeholders," Re-
gent Baker asserted.
Baker, the University spokes-
woman, could not comment on Re-
gent Baker's remarks. "We've had
faculty on both sides of the political
aisle," she said.

used is going to be taken away."
Poiourow told the assembly that the
tenants' union had helped her in sev-
eral disputes with her landlord.
After the budget vote, the assem-
bly voted 13-10 to hire the lobbying
firm of Cawthorne, McCollough, and

Cavanagh to represent MSA in Lan-
Although the lobbying funds are
frozen, MSA Vice President Jacob
Stern said the assembly will enter into
negotiations with the firm.
"I think they need to be made
aware that the money is suspended
and might not be at the level they
expected, but we will certainly enter
negotiations," Stern said.

around Constant, protecting him from
thousands of angry Haitians who
jeered as he gave the speech. Con-
stant said he was ready to accept
Aristide as president. U.S. Embassy
spokesman Stanley Schrager, stand-
ing nearby, said the remarks were
Constant told reporters:-"I'm ask-
ing everyone to put down the stones,
to put down the tires and to put down

of-heart, "It's sort of like Al Capone

decision not to arrest Constant and
other FRAPH leaders would make
life more difficult for Aristide when
he gets back.
Francois' flight to the Dominican
Republic was a significant develop-
ment in the efforts to restore Aristide.
According to an agreement
brokered two weeks ago by former
President Carter, Francois' cohorts,
the army head, Lt. Gen. Raoul Cedras,
and the chief of staff, Brig. Gen.
Philippe Biamby, also must give up
power by Oct. 15.
"Itis an important step in the peace-
ful transition to democracy," Schrager
said of Francois' departure. "We be-
lieve it could accelerate the departure
of the others, we hope, before the
It had been rumored for several
days that Francois might slip across
the border but it was very possibly
Monday's heavy-handed U.S. army
operation against FRAPH and a num-

ber of Francois' police officers that
caused him to finally make his move.
U.S. MPs and infantrymen raided
FRAPH offices here and in the north-
ern port city of Cap-Haitien, detain-
ing more than 100 members who are
being held to stand trial upon the
return of Aristide's government.
Half a dozen Haitian policemen
who showed up at the scene of the raid
were roughed up and handcuffed by
the GIs before they were finally re-
leased. Francois' police officers were
humiliated and some of them later
burned their uniforms outside police
headquarters in protest.
Francois was the guiding force of
the police department, whose mem-
bers are considered among the most
brutal and corrupt of the Haitian armed
forces. Francois, a lieutenant colonel
in the armed forces, which includes
both the army and the police, has also
been seen as a liaison between the
military and FRAPH.
Events of the last few days have
left soldiers and policemen bewil-
dered, many of them fearful they will
face the wrath of a civilian population
that since the 1991 coup has suffered
killings and beatings at the hands of
soldiers and their civilian allies.
"If you have one car, you can take
five people with you, but you leave
thousands behind," said a 10-year
police veteran, Yves Racine, 30, re-
ferring to the flight of his police chief.
But there were signs among some
soldiers of a desire to reconcile with
the majority of the populace that gave
Aristide an overwhelming victory in
the December 1990 elections. Out-
side .the police headquarters, groups
of officers and soldiers discussed their
plight with an openness unthinkable
before the arrival here of American
troops on Sept., 19.

"Dr. Koop is an incredible person
to be able to talk to one on one," said
Vikas Mehta, an LSA senior.
Rosenquist said, "I'm curious how
he feels on emphasis on sensitivity
rather than medical knowledge."
Course grading is not a big con-
cern, say most students.
"This is not supposed to be a course
where you're striving for a grade,"
Choi said.
Students will be assigned a paper
or project that will be graded by a
graduate student in the School of Pub-
lic Health, not by Koop, according to
Liina Wallin, associate director of the
LSA Honors Program.
"It's work but it's the kind of work
you enjoy doing," Rosenquist said.
LSA senior John Dodds said, "It's
worth it just to hear him."
Some students said they would
have taken the class even if Koop
wasn't teaching it.
"I'd be interested regardless,"
Mehta said.
"It's hard to talk about health care
on a daily basis with your friends," he
said. "To have this sort of forum set
up is nice."
Choi said, "It's something where
you can drop a name and it may im-
press someone," referring to inter-
views for medical school.
"If you got in, it shows you're the
type of person who wants to educate
yourself." Choi said.

Kopt tr nhealth care tomght

Daily Staff Reporter
Health care reform may be dead in
Congress, but one champion for the
cause has not given up quite yet.
Former Surgeon General C.
Everett Koop will speak tonight at 8
in Rackham Au-
ditorium about
the ethical im-
perative of health
reform. y T
Many stu-
dents said they ,
are looking for-
w ard to the
speech, which is
part of a mini-
course sponsored by the LSA Honors
David Choi, an LSA senior, said,
"What better source to learn about
health issues than from the former
surgeon general."
Koop served as surgeon general
from 1981 to 1989 under President
Ronald Reagan.
He was the vanguard of health
reform in the 1980s before it became
a hot topic under the Clinton adminis-
Koop came under fire in the past

decade for his advocacy of sex educa-
tionin public schools. Koop's efforts
helped establish programs in many
schools around the country.
A long-time critic of society
vices such as alcohol, tobacco an
drugs, Koop's health reform ideas
center on taxing controlled substances
to help finance the system.
James Dodds, an LSA senior, said,
"There aren't too many doctors who
have had the opportunity to look at
the national scene like he has."
Koop also has been highly critical
of violence in society.
"U.S. society is so numbed by A
prevalence of violence as to seem-
ingly accept it as inevitable," Koop
said in 1992.
He has cited domestic violence
as the No. 1 health problem for
women, reporting in 1984 that such
violence was the single largest cause
of injury among women in the
United States.
Prior to his appointment as s4
geon general, Koop taught pediatric
surgery at the University of Pennsyl-
He was also the surgeon in chief of
the Children's Hospital of Philadel-
phia from 1948 to 1981.

He paid special tribute to Black
Americans who kept the anti-apart-
heid battle alive in the United States
over many years.
They "opened the coffers, and set
the environment for every citizen of
the United States of America to feel
that this is a battle in which they
should participate," Mandela said.
"Afro-Americans never forgot that
Africa is their continent.
"Our victory is your victory."
He drew a parallel with the "deci-
sive role" U.S. business can play "in

ensuring that there are enough homes,
there are enough jobs, there are enough
schools, there are enough hospitals
and doctors for our country."
U.S. and South African represen-
tatives in Pretoria signed an agree-
ment on South Africa's decision to
terminate its missile production pro-
gram and abide by the non-prolifera-
tion guidelines under the international
Missile Technology Control Regime.
State Department spokesman
Mike McCurry said the accord allows
South Africa to import temporarily
space launch vehicles for satellites,
and to terminate its existing space
launch vehicle program.
The agreement reflects ajointcom-

where we're penalizing undergrads
for the University's intransigence,"
said GEO organizer Tamara Joseph.
In the past GEO has bargained for
wage increases, and the next contract
negotiations will not likely be differ-
ent. Currently, TAs are paid a per-
centage of the full-time teaching sal-
ary, depending on the number of hours
worked each week. The average TA
works 16 to 18 hours each week, tak-
ing home $729 per month, according
to GEO statistics. The Office of Fi-

nancial Aid calculates graduate stu-
dent living expenses at $829 per
"Most TAs made the decision to
spend six years living below the pov-
erty line because they care about teach-
ing. But at the same time, the cost of
living in Ann Arbor is rising at a rate
of 13 percent and salaries are only
rising at a 3-percent rate," Joseph
GEO's agenda for future contract
negotiations places an emphasis on
affirmative action. The current GEO
contract voices an anti-discrimina-
tion policy, yet the University is ulti-
mately responsible for hiring TAs.

"There is a huge number discrep-
ancy between minority graduate stu-
dents and minority TAs. We're seri-
ously looking at the next contract to
try to reverse the pattern of racial
discrimination in effect," Joseph said.
The switch from a two-year con-
tract to a three-year pact has given
GEO time to survey members' opin-
ions for the next round of negotia-
"This three-year gap is a luxury.
We're not constantly finding our-
selves right after a negotiation or gear-
ing up for the next one. We now have
the time to develop a sense of what
our members want in the next year,"
Curtiss said.
The administration believes TAs
and graduate students are an impor-
tant piece of the University, and has
tried to reach agreements without fac-
ing a strike, said Dan Gamble, man-
ager of compensation and staff rela-
tions for the Human Resources and
Affirmative Action Office.
"It isa reasonable process and
they are a reasonable union. I've been
there through all the negotiations since
1981 and I think in each instance
we've reached an agreement,"
Gamble said.
