COURT
Continued from page 1
But a magazine called "Wide
Awake: A Christian Perspective at the
University of Virginia" was denied
5,862 in publishing fees by the stu-
dent council because it was deemed a
"religious activity." The council relied
on university guidelines in refusing
the subsidy. The magazine, founded
Ay undergraduate Ronald Rosenberger,
is published three times during the
year and distributed free on campus.
Backers of "Wide Awake" pointed

out that other religiously oriented
groups, such as the Muslim Students
Association and the Jewish Law Stu-
dents Association, had their activities
and publications subsidized. The uni-
versity defended those subsidies as "cul-
tural activities," not religious ones.
"Because 'Wide Awake' is ajour-
nal pervasively devoted to the discus-
sion and advancement of an avow-
edly Christian theological and per-
sonal philosophy," the university may
not subsidize it, the appeals court
said. It cited the First Amendment's
ban on laws fostering an "establish-
ment of religion."

SERBS
Continued from page 1
In the Bosnian Serb stronghold of
Banja Luka about 50 miles east of the
fighting around Bosanska Krupa, many
ambulances were seen going to and
from the Banja Luka hospital.
Bryan Graham, local spokesman for
the U.N. High Commissioner for Refu-
gees, said about 12,000-13,000 Serb
civilians had fled the fighting and 9,000
alone were in the town of Bosanski
Petrovac. Some were in corridors and
basements of overcrowded buildings.
Silajdzic said he hoped the battle-
field victories would bring the Serbs to
the negotiating table. A perception of
coming victory may make the Bosnian
government reconsider its acceptance
of the peace plan.
"I am very satisfied with the re-
sponse among the fighters, with their
ever-increasing morale, and the excep-
tional support among the people," the
Bosnian Serb news agency SRNA
quoted Bosnian Serb leader Radovan
Karadzic as saying.
"The international community, es-
pecially America, is tolerating the Mus-
lim offensive, which is why we had to
mobilize all our manpower, economic
and other resources to defeat the Mus-
lim forces as soon as possible," he said.

The radio, in a report confirmed
by the United Nations, said rebel Serbs
from neighboring Croatia joined
forces with the Bosnian Serbs and
launched artillery attacks on several
government-held towns in northwest-
ern Bosnia.
The United Nations reported a mass-
ing of armor and troops in Croatian
Serb territory near the Bihac area.
The fiercest combat raged in north-
western Bosnia, where government
forces continued a two-pronged offen-
sive that has gained 100 square miles.
Government troops reached Kulen
Vakuf, 21 miles south ofBihac. Other
units renewed an assault on the Serb-
held town of Bosanska Krupa, which
they surrounded Saturday.
U.N. peacekeepers also confirmed
that government troops south of
Sarajevo had advanced about two
miles toward Trnovo, a town strad-
dling a vital supply route linking the
main portion of Serb-held territory
with relatively isolated southernmost
Bosnia.
Lt. Col. Tim Spicer, a spokesman
for peacekeepers, said government
forces had not taken any sections of
road yet, but were close enough to
disrupt traffic.
There was no Bosnian army com-
ment on the Serb claim about use of
the tunnel.
In apparent retaliation for the at-
tacks, Serbs have shelled the govern-
ment-held suburb of Hrasnica. Three
people have been killed and 23
wounded in three days of shelling.

Schall campaign aide Mike
Christie said several circumstances
combined to convince Schall to
withdrawl. Schall is scheduled to de-
bate Rivers on the radio twice tomor-
row; once at 10 a.m. on WAAM-AM ;
and again at 7 p.m. on WEMU-AM.
Christie pointed out that both stations

it's extremely frustrating. But I think
what we had last night was a group of
people ... who were intent on starting*
fires, and obviously they did,'
McKinnon said. "When you have
people bent up on committing this
kind of destruction, it's very diffi-
cult."
McKinnon also dismissed the criti-
cism that the authorities had not done
enough to get the community orga-
nized against Devil's Night.
McKinnon said he would be out pa-0
trolling last night to prevent a recur-
That reasoning hasn't made
Schall's withdrawl any more palat-
able to organizers of tonight's event.
"(This) is extremely disappoint-
ing to us because they had confirmed
twice," Boyer said. "The Schall cam-
paign selected the date around which
all the other candidates have formed@0
their schedules."
Rivers charged Schall with duck-
ing the forum for political reasons.
"His withdrawl is particularly tell-
ing," Rivers said, "given his attack
pieces have begun to appear around
the district and given they are riddled
with inaccuracies."
Schall could not be reached for
comment last night.
Boyer said this was the only such
event for the congressional race.
"This is the only live debate with all
five candidates that the general public
is invited to," she said. "He's frustrated
our mission to get a fair and equal
opportunity to evaluate the candidates."

Voters may want to pick up sample
of complicated ballot, city clerk says

01

By KELLY MORRISON
For the Daily
Voters be forewarned: Ballots for
next week'selections are much longer
and more detailed than most voters
might expect, says Ann Arbor City
Clerk Winifred Northcross.
The ballot includes six proposals
and the names of 78 candidates. The
two-sided ballot will be used to deter-
mine Michigan's next governor as well
as multiple congressional, state and
local officials.
Northcross encourages voters to
prepare themselves before filling out
the ballot. "Voters should understand
that this is a very long ballot. Samples
are available at thecity clerk's office,"
she said.
Information regarding the ballot can

also be obtained at the League of
Women Voters, or by calling "your
political party of preference,"
Northcross said.
The ballot is divided into three sec-
tions: partisan, nonpartisan and pro-
posals.
The partisan ballot lists candidates
for Congress, state Legislature and
state boards, including the eight can-
didates vying for two seats on the
University Board of Regents.
The election will also determine the
composition of the Washtenaw
County Commission, the City Coun-
cil and the next mayor of Ann Arbor.
On the partisan ballot, voters will
have the option of selecting a straight,
mixed or split-party ticket, choosing
from the Democratic, Republican,

FUNDING
Continued from page 2
Klein's prediction of a shortfall
reaching $500 million, and possibly
ranging as high as $1 billion in a few
years, has caught the eye of more than
a few candidates.
Engler said he could guarantee there
would be no shortfall in the final guber-
natorial debate.
"Governor, what you have done is

put a $1 billion time bomb under the
children of this state," Wolpe retorted.
Liz Brater, the Democratic candi-
date for the 53rd district state House
seat, was more concerned about the
source of the funding.
"Our major goal is to make sure
the money guaranteed is going to be
there," she said.
Kearney said the limited options
if the shortfall materializes include
moving more money from the state's
general fund, which could impact state
appropriations to public colleges, or
raising taxes. Reforming public
schools has also been a hot topic.
Engler came into office proposing
increasing parents' ability to choose
where to send their kids to school.
"I believe parents ought to have a
choice," Engler said.
Wolpe said, "I'm not questioning
the value of private or religious
schools. The issue is only whether the
public's tax dollars should go to pri-

Workers World, Libertarian and Natu-
ral Law parties.
The nonpartisan ballot will deter-
mine the fates of various politicians
vying forjudicial seats, including two
seats on the state Supreme Court.
A county proposal to limit taxed
used to maintain parks is included on
the ballot, followed by a city proposal
to renew the millage currently used to
renovate and improve parks.
Several state proposals are also on
the ballot. One item proposes the con-
veningofa constitutional convention to
revise the state Constitution. Other pro-
posals include a limit in the number of
appeals by a defendant, an amendment:
to the state's auto insurance laws and an
increase in funds allocated to theMichi-
gan Natural Resources Trust Fund.
vate or religious schools."
Currently, under the Michigan
Constitution, it is illegal to give any
tax money to non-public schools.
Engler has said he would neithert
lead nor be part of an effort to change
this provision, although he said the
original amendment was too restric-
tive when it was proposed while he
was in the state Legislature.
"If John Engler and his cohorts
have their way, every sect, cult and
religious off-shoot in the state will be
standing in line to grab what they will
stake out as their share of the public's
hard-earned tax dollars," Wolpe said.
Some don't have as big a problem 0
with everyone sharing state money.
Marty Straub, the Republican candidate
for the 52nd district state House seat,
said theparents shouldbeable to choose.
"I prefer to see this as we all have
to fund education, the state gives stu-
dents money and they choose how it
will be best spent," he said.
