Engler also endorsed tougher mea-
sures for youthful offenders. "The
public is demanding - and I concur
- that young punks be treated as
adults," Engler said.
He said he will submit a $200

locking up young criminals. And,
Engler said he will fill prisons to the
fullest by "double bunking convicts

After the 35-minute address,
Democratic Rep. Mary Schroer said,
"I thoughtit was the worst State of the
State I ever heard."
Schroer, whose district encom-
passes the University's North Cam-
pus, criticized Engler for lacking spe-
cifics in his address, likening it to a
campaign speech. She disagreed with
Engler's proposal to increase income
tax exemptions across the board,
and said exemptions should focus
specifically on families with chil-
"These are the people ... that are
having the hardest time surviving in
Michigan," she said.
Although new Rep. Liz Brater (D-
Ann Arbor) complimented parts of
Engler's agenda, she said, "I do have
a healthy dose of skepticism."
Brater said that although the
economy is healthy now, recent pro-
jections predict a downswing in the
next few years.
Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer also
attended the address, his third trip to
the Capitol this month.
Archer spoke optimistically of the
city's relationship with the state gov-
ernment. "Given the right help now,
the city of Detroit will be a help to the
state, not a drain."
Before he began his speech, Engler
thanked the state's citizens for the
outpouring of love that had greeted
the birth of his triplet daughters -
Margaret, Hannah and Madeleine -
on Nov. 13.
And the governor used the speech,
shown by the state's public television
stations, to send his best wishes to

Washington's office released a
letter yesterday in which he chastised
the University for its action and reit-
erated the employees' intent to fight
for their demands.
"Ms. Mitchell, Ms. Atkins and*
Mr. Isabell are not resigning their
employment," Washington stated.
"They intend to fight through all avail-
able means for the jobs, the clean
records, the back pay and the nondis-
criminatory working conditions which
are their right."
Washington said yesterday that he
and his clients may raise the lawsuit
to $2 million, but that they are await

Vice President for University Re-
lations Walter Harrison said that he
could not comment on the case before
it is filed.
"If Mr. Washington wants to file
suit, then he can file suit and we will
respond," Harrison said last night.
Harrison added he has not yet see
the statement. "We will study the fil-
ing if and when it happens and then
we will be able to respond to it."

Winterfest caters primarily to first
and second-year students. "It is *
chance for them to get involved in
various ways and learn more about
the University," she said. '
LSA senior Vikas Mehta, member
of Circle K International, said, "If
you don't get involved, the world will
be shaped by people other than you. If
you want things to be a certain way,
you have to do something about it."
About 1,800 people were killed in an earthquake and its aftershocks. Almost 1,000 are still missing.

Jackson said she will stay at the Univer-
sity, but plans to complete her concen-
tration under the old requirements.
Chamberlin said the University has
not had an undergraduate degree pro-
gram in journalism in 15 years. He
recommended that students interested
in journalism think about getting "a
broad liberal arts education" and learn
journalistic writing through internships
or working for The Michigan Daily.
"If someone is trying to put to-
getheraB.A. injournalismhere, they're
going to be frustrated the year after
next," Chamberlin said. "There is no
intent to have a journalism curriculum
in LSA," after next year, he said.
In the reorganization of the de-
partment, most of the advanced writ-
ing courses - some of which are
among the most popular in the depart-
ment - will be dropped from the
curriculum, probably as soon as the
'96-'97 school year, Chamberlin said.
Some other courses, such as those
in public speaking, will also be
dropped, unless they find a "natural
intellectual home" somewhere else in
It is possible that some journalism
writing classes may be taught in other
LSA departments, but no specific plans
for this have been made, Chamberlin
said. A committee looking at relocating
the journalism master's program out-
side of LSA may look at moving some
undergraduate journalism classes, but
its first priority will be graduate educa-
tion, he said.
Chamberlin said since publicity
of the meeting was limited, another
meeting will be held.

"While the vacation packages have
fixed prices, a tourist buying local
goods could pay as much as 30-40
percent less than the normal price.
Going off the beaten path would en-
able students to save an enormous
amount of money," Bodhurtha said.
"Snorkeling in the Yucatan Peninsula
or traveling in Baja with a guide is not
a deluxe vacation, but it would defi-
nitely be cheaper."
Many local travel agencies have
not seen a difference in vacation plans.
Dan Nowakowski, of Regency
Travel Agency, Inc., said, "Idon't think
the peso devaluation will bring one
more person to Mexico. The prices here
remain the same, but in the touristareas,
prices will be raised accordingly."

Although some travel agents say
travellers are notmaking reservations
with money in mind, many students
said it is an important factor.
"The peso devaluation definitely
helps, taking into account the fact that
we're paying for food and drinking
while we're there," said Kim Vacher,
an LSA sophomore who plans to go to
Acapulco this year. "It should help us
be able to eat a bit more than we might
Bodurtha said the continuous de-
valuation of the peso cannot last much
longer. "The value can't go too much
lower, because it would be bad for the
(United States). Banks are already
giving lines of credit to keep the mar-
ket stable. Ross Perot is even back
reminding us about the giant sucking
sound he's hearing."
