environmental integrity to ensure the
quality of life our mutual constituents
have come to expect."
Chetley Zarko, a 1993 University
alum, did not stress town-gown rela-
tions, but rather the balance between
research and teaching at the University.
"What has happened is that we have
sacrificed quality teaching for quality
research," he said, citing large lecture
classes and administrative bureaucrac.y!
"Our next president should strive for
a balance between education and
research," Zarko said.

A judge Friday approved a request by
murder and arson suspects Crystal Lujan
and Dale Lipke for court-funded psy-
chiatric exams to see whether they may
plead insanity for the 16 charges they
Defense attorneys for Lujan, an LSA
sophoiore, and Lipke, 23, cited the
need for courtassistance duetoalack of
funds, and said there was a need to
explore all possible defenses.
"I want my client to have the benefit
of what science has to offer," Lujan's
attorney, John M. Toomey, told
Washtenaw Circuit Court Judge
Melinda Morris. "I want to be able to
make use of what pleas and defenses
are available."
Toomey, who filed a brief prior to
Friday's pretrial hearing, iwrote that
while Lujan has been found competent
to stand trial, he wishes to evaluate
Lujan's mental state as of the time the
crimes occurred, in mid-September.
"The claimed crime scenarios, and
police reports reflecta pattern ofclaimed
bizarre behavior," Toomey wrote in a
Jan. 17 brief. "Several of the prosecu-
tion witnesses have referred to (Lujan)
as 'crazy.' ... (Lujan) claims a past
history of psychiatric problems, and

further claims to have been diagnosed
for psychiatric problems and disorders
in her recent past."
In an Oct. 28 letter to Washtenaw
District Court Judge John Collins, Lujan
wrote about having mental disorders
and denied charges that she killed a
Superior Township man.
"I am aware that I have been por-
trayed as an evil, dangerous person; but
I am not," Lujan wrote. "I am someone
who lives with my mother and my child.
I have an illness that causes me to have
hallucinations, hear voices, and have
large gaps in memory, as well as having
trouble differentiating truth and reality
from lies and make believe.
"But these things do not make me a
bad person. As long as I take my medi-
cation, I function was well as anyone
else," she wrote. "I am aware of the
cases thepolice suspect mein. Although
I am sure you have heard this a thou-
sand times but I am not guilty of these
Morris set a second pretrial hearing
for March 27 at 1:30 p.m., giving de-
fense attorneys time to review tran-
scripts of the lengthy preliminary hear-
ings and an opportunity to review psy-
chiatric findings. Toomey and Randall

Roberts, who represents Lipke, said
they plan to file several motions in
Steve Hiller, a prosecution lawyer,
said in court that he expects the trial to
be quite lengthy. He said prosecutors
currently wish to call 48 witnesses, eight
of whom are experts. He also said the
prosecution may call as many as 60 of
125 potential witnesses.
"There is either going to be one mas-
sive trial or several massive trials,"
Hiller said Friday. "It is not a case that
can be tried in a week, even if we have
a week of full days."
Hiller said he plans to request blood
samples of each defendant.
Lujan and Lipke sat quietly during
Friday's hearing, whispering to each
other at various points. Lujan's mother,
who had been present at the prelimi-
nary hearings, was not in court Friday.
Meanwhile, representatives of the
estate of the Superior Township man,
Daniel P. Rice, have indicated plans to
tear down Rice's house to liquidate the
property.,l -iller said that if the defense
attorneys would like to see the crime
scene, they would have to do so soon.
Rice's body was found on a couch in the
house's living room.

Sheldon said.

sioners, and county administrator Rob-

ments during the forum at the Gerald R.

Campus Chrisian groups unite
to sponsor icebreaker in Union

- Compiled from staff reports.

"Student Government Council no
longer exists. The Central Student
udiciary (CSJ) ruled yesterday that
the council 'is no longer a function-
ing body' and ordered the immedi-
ate impolementation of a govern-
ment plan adopted by University
,students last November. The 5-0
decision means that the Michigan
Student Assembly (MSA)-a gov-
erning body that will include thej
former members of SGC plus 17
representatives from the separate

Gospel songs, laughter and shouts of
"Thank you, Jesus" and "Hallelujah"
filled the Michigan Union Ballroom
last night.
The Burning Bush campus ministry
with other campus Christian organiza-
tions, such as Chi Alpha Christian Fel-
lowship,jointly organized a "Christian
Icebreake-" program for students to
come together for worship. The orga-
nizers invited the University Gospel
Chorale and the Eastern Michigan Uni-
versity Choir to sing at the event.
About 60 people attended the event,
co-organized by LSA senior Sonya
Franklin. Franklin said the night was
the first time so many Christian organi-
zations joined their efforts to hold a
ceremony together.
"It is a great way for everyone to
come together to forget differences,"
Franklin said.
Zack Johnson, another program co-
organizer and a minister of the Burning
Bush Church, said, "Our main mission
is to encourage Christians to go out and
touch the lives of those who are non-

The Burning Bush campus ministry
started its chapter in July 1995. The
icebreaker was an opportunity for the
group to establish its branch and to
learn how other Christian organizations
operate, Johnson said.
RCjuniorJonathan Fellows, director
of Christian United, said, "The event
will foster unity, help develop relation-
ships in different (racial) groups, so
there's a foundation to do great things
for God. "
Fellows said the program intended to
encourage people to understand and
practice Christian values.
Various vocal performances con-
veyed the messages of God during the
service. Students, ministries and orga-
nizers of the service stomped their feet,
clapped their hands, jumped, danced
and shouted their thanks to God to the
beat of the gospel music.
While some students joined the pro-

gram for the feeling of unity and to
share a common faith with other mem-
bers of Christian organizations, others
attended the service simply to enjoy the
gospel choir performances, which were
mostly in pop music style.
LSA senior LaTonya Sutton said,
"Music is important because we can
express ourselves, and how you are
She also said the gospel music that
opened the service was "to give a feel to
the moment and to prepare you for the
messages that come forth in the
Sutton explained that gospel songs
simulate pop music in an attempt to
reach a broader audience, including
young and old Christians.
The icebreakerended with Johnson's
speech and a performance by the Uni-
versity Gospel Chorale, during which
the audience stood up to sing and dance.
