sentative and has worked on several
statewide campaigns. Christie and his
staff of student supporters found that
county politics presented new chal-
lenges for them to study.
"My goal is to win the seat for the
students and then start my career," said
Christie, who is considering entering
law or business school. Then, "another
student could pick up the reins and run
for office two years later."
Wright, an LSA sophomore, is the
youngest of the bunch. He is running
for the Ann Arbor City Council in the
1st Ward. Wright, anotherMSA mem-
ber, is up for re-election on the stu-

dent government, a complementary
situation in his eyes.
"After a year at MSA I have been
able to see some of the relationship
between the city and the University,"
Wright said, "and how they've been
stressed." Because students comprise
30 percent of Ann Arbor's population,
Wright feels it is appropriate to have a
student representative on the council.
Unlike Cherrin or Christie, Wright
is running without a party affiliation.
Based on his books, Wright knows
independents often lose. But he pre-
fers to focus on his abilities rather
than political ideology.
One question remains. If one wins,
will he get an automatic "A" in his
political science classes?

ompson in Tennessee. In the others,
Jim Inhofe was marginally ahead in
the polls in Oklahoma and veteran
GOP campaign aide Spencer Abraham
was in a tossup race with Democratic
Rep. Bob Carr in Michigan.
Governor's Race
Gov. John Engler and Democratic
challenger Howard Wolpe made cam-
paign stops at several Detroit-area
church services yesterday. Each de-
livered similar - but distinctively
different-messages to the predomi-
nately Black congregations.
Engler said he's worked in his
first term as governor to break down
barriers to economic and social
achievement for all people. Wolpe
said Engler has divided Detroit and
the state between Blacks and whites,
suburbs and inner-cities.
Both candidates told voters they
have an agenda to move Michigan
forward, and asked for support in
tomorrow's elections. Wolpe contin-
ued to down play poll results showing
Engler widening his margin over the
Democrat. Wolpe pulled from his
pocket several times a copy of a De-

troit News story published just before
1990 elections. It showed then-Demo-
cratic Gov. James Blanchard leading
Engler, 54 percent to 40 percent.
"If polls voted, Jim Blanchard
would still be governor," Wolpe said.
Wolpe said the big numbers for
Engler going into the election won't
keep Democrats from voting.
Senate Race
Mayor Dennis Archer used what
he called the "foundation of the city"
yesterday as he visited several
churches with Democratic U.S. Sen-
ate candidate Bob Carr and urged
people to vote. Meanwhile, Carr's
Republican rival, Spencer Abraham,
visited churches in Detroit's suburbs.
"Polls don't vote - people vote,"
Archerproclaimed at Third New Hope
Baptist Church. "They got all those
polls out there. All of it is a scheme to
keep voters home." Archer told the
congregation of about 150 people that
recentpolls showing Democrats trail-
ing are misleading.
A poll released Saturday by
Mitchell Research and Communica-
tions for WJBK-TV in Southfield
showed Abraham with the support of
41 percent of those polled, compared
with Carr's 32 percent. The margin of
error was 4.5 percent either way.

month," she said. "Most women do
not report an assault because their
attacker is someone they know.
Stranger rape is most likely to be;
reported because there's no relation-
ship with the person. He's 'the rapist'
instead of the friend or neighbor."
Wright added: "People are sur-;
prised if the rapist doesn't fit the mold
in their head. "Women think, 'Why1
would this cute guy, this popular guy,
this guy with a girlfriend need to rape1
anyone for sex?' People are surprised
and many times refuse to believe it."1
Stranger rapes account for a small+
number of assaults. Between 60 and
80 percent of all rapes are acquain-
tance rapes, by someone the victim
knows, Doud said.
"Most rapists see their victims as
objects, not aperson, not their friend,"
Wright said. "Mediaplays alarge role
in reinforcing the idea that women are
objects. When women are thought of
as a greatpairof legs, a nice behind or
a great pair of boobs, they are not
thought of as an individual."
The University sponsors several
programs to educate students and fac-
ulty about rape and sexual assault.
However, most of these programs
emphasize the dangers of assault from
strangers, not acquaintance rape.

ering what is good enough in a lan-
guage. Some TAs have some difficul-
ties with the language, yet have good
success in communicating their mes-
sage to students. It is a very difficult
situation to be in," she said.
Additionally, Briggs said that,
"some students may only want TAs
with superior levels of English, which
may be discriminatory to some TAs."
Briggs suggested thatstudents who
have difficulty understanding a TA
should first confront the TA and ex-
plain their problem. Secondly, she
recommends alerting the department
of the problem.

"(The Panhellenic Associatipn)
sponsors a sexual awareness program
every year, and our (sorority) house
has an annual program with SAPAC,"
said LSA junior Tejal Kamdar. "We
try tohave a self-defense course, also."
Wright said that while these pro-
grams serve a valuable purpose, they
are not enough. "The emphasis is al-
ways on strangers: Don't'walk home
alone, stay in lit areas. The burden is
always on the woman to protect her-
self. Acquaintance rape is discussed
but always as a secondary issue, even
though most assaults occur between
people who know each other."
If someone is assaulted on cam-
pus, they have the option of bringing
charges against an assailant through
the University's Statementof Student
Rights and Responsibilities - the
code of non-academic conduct. A
person can file a complaint through
the Office of Student Affairs, wher4
the complaint will be reviewed.
"If the University brings charges
against someone, the accused is noti-
fied," said Mary Lou Anticau, judi-
cial adviser for the code.
Despite the University's effort to
heighten awareness and prevent sexual
assault on campus, several students in-
terviewed said they do not feel safe.

"I now begin the journey that will

know that for America there will al-
ways be a bright dawn ahead."
Foster said there was anothertwist
to Reagan's diagnosis - the possibil-
ity that the disease could strike a presi-
dent while still in office. "It points out a
lot of interesting legal problems."
Foster said Michigan spends about
$1 billion each year caring for
Alzheimer's patients.

Students have seen improvements
in the communication abilities of TAs
over the past few years, Briggs said
A study conducted by Briggs and
Barbara Hofer of the Center for Re-
search on Learning and Testing shows
that student satisfaction with interna
tional TAs is rising.
The study was done on TAs in the
chemistry, economics and mathemat-
ics departments.
In 1983-84, international TAs were
well below average U.S. TAs in stu-
dent satisfaction. However, in 1988-
89, international TAs received almost
equivalent approval ratings when
compared to the other TAs.
Students experiencing communai*
cation problems with international TAs
or professors are encouraged to con-

guage Institute at 747-0458 or e-mail

Bosnian Serbs raided two U.N.
weapons collection points near Sarajevo
after the government shelling. The col-
lection points were created underth
February cease-fire that also established
the heavy weapons exclusion zone.
French peacekeepers rushed to the

site and calmed the situation briefly,
but tensions flared again later when
Bosnian Serbs attempted to remove
an anti-tank weapon from the depot.
