ofthe fraternity's members with hazing

The student told police he was beaten,
whipped and deprived of sleep on two
separate occasions. The attorney pros-
ecuting the case said the student might
suffer "some degree of hearing impair-
ment" and have to drop out of school
Secause of the beatings.
The members accused of the beat-
ings will be tried by a university judi-
cial board in addition to the criminal
proceedings. The chapter has been sus-
pended by its national office.

Nurse lectures on
living with cancer

By Carissa Van Heest
Daily Staff Reporter
For people whose lives have been
touched by cancer, a Cancer Answer Line
resource nurse, Rita Petrovskis, lectured
on "Coping With Cancer" yesterday as
part of Cancer Awareness Week.
"You should never be afraid to let
your loved ones know you care about
them - even if you are not quite sure
what to say," Petrovskis said.
The lecture focused on how cancer
patients handle living with the disease,
and how friends and family members
can help them.
"A cancer diagnosis brings out a wide
range of feelings," Petrovskis said. "It
helps to understand them so you can
better understand people with cancer
and what they are going through."
Petrovskis said many cancer patients
experience shock, denial, anger, guilt,
shame, anxiety and depression when
they are diagnosed.
These feelings must be addressed by
loved ones, Petrovskis said.
"Everyone who undergoes a cancer
diagnosis has basic needs that need to
be fulfilled," she said. I
Often, in addition to health concerns,
people with cancer have transportation,
family care and financial issues that
arise, Petrovskis said.
"Recently, at the Cancer Answer
Line, people have told me that they
need the best treatment available be-

cause they need to take care of elderly
parents or kids," Petrovskis said.
Maintaining relationships with oth-
ers often becomes more challenging
when one is diagnosed with cancer, she
said.
"Dealing with family members is not
as easy as it may appear from the out-
side," Petrovskis said.
Events coordinator for Students
Against Cancer Shera Gittleman asked
Petrovskis to present this lecture as part
of Cancer Awareness Week.
"We tried to think ofthings thatmight
be relevant for university students,"
Gittleman said.
Providing support for cancer patients
and their families are main goals of'Stu-
dents Against Cancer, Gittleman said.
Of the nine people who attended the
lecture, most had been affected by can-
cer in one way or another.
"I have Hodgkins' Disease, which is
cancer of the lymph nodes, and I feel
the need to start talking about my own
personal experience with cancer-it is
time to express that," said Art senior
Monique Piegdon. "I came here-t get
more information."
"My stepmother might have cancer
and I thought I would come and find out
more about it in case it is cancer,"'said
LSA junior Christian Maloof. "The in-
formation presented might enable me
to offer some support and comfort to
her."

Lnetcontiouis eael
of MA rsigns from hsea~Ct

By Laurie Mayk
Daily Staff Reporter
The longest continuous member of
the Michigan Student Assembly, Brian
Elliott, resigned
from his seat on the
assembly last night.
In a speech to the
assembly at MSA's k°
last meeting before 4
today's elections,
Elliott, a Students'
Party Engineering
representative, ex-
pressed frustration
with the assembly's Elliott
current president
and vice president, Flint Wainess and
Sam Goodstein. Elliott accused the pair
of embezzling MSA funds, taking credit
for the work of other assembly members
and consciously breaking MSA rules.
"Please take heart, it can't get any

worse," Elliott told the assembly.
Elliott, whose term ends in the fall,
said he resigned now to allow the Uni-
versity of Michigan Engineering Coun-
cil enough time to appoint his successor
to serve for the rest of the year and
through the summer. Elliott said he
would have had to give up his seat by
this spring because he decided to attend
the Minnesota School of Public Policy.
Engineering Rep. David Burden said
UMEC will appoint a new representa-
tive in two weeks.
Elliott said Wainess and Goodstein
have repeatedly ignored MSA rules,
especially in terms of the assembly's
internal budget.
"They chose to feign ignorance of the
rules in order to not follow them and
that really got frustrating," Elliott said.
Students' Party presidential candi-
date Olga Savic said Elliott's low atten-
dance and involvement this year

stemmed from his frustration with the
current MSA administration.
"Brian would have been much more
involved in the last year if he thought it
would have made a difference," Savic
said.
The contributions he did make dur-
ing Wainess and Goodstein's admin-
istration were not recognized, Elliot
said.
"The last straw was when Flint and
Sam took credit for MSA Online. I put
a lot of time into that web page and
that's really essentially MSA Online,"
Elliott said.
Elliott was first elected to the assem-
bly in fall 1993. Before that, he served
as a commission chair in 1992.
"I hope UMEC chooses carefully
because it's a big seat to fill," said LSA
Rep. Dan Serota.
Wainess would not comment on
Elliot's resignation or accusations.

HI V/AIDS Center
nP P mtl £3lnI tbv a TLf

By Cathy Harmon
For the Daily,
The HIV/AIDS Resource Center cel-
ebrated its 10-year anniversary yester-
day by kicking off a new program,
"Dining for Dollars."
About 150 people attended the event,+
held at Gandy Dancer restaurant.
The $100-a-plate fund-raiser opened
HARC's fund-raising season, which +
will include future dinners at HARC
members' homes.
"There are different themes, such as
the Fabulous 70s and Hollywood," said
H ARC member Tim Bertrand, who +
worked at last night's fund-raiser.
Local businesses, including Espresso
Royale Cafe and Borders Books & +
Music, contributed to the event with 67+
items for a silent auction. The proceeds;
from the auction will support the
agency's programs, said Program Co-
ordinator Larry La Ferte.
HARC provides outreach, counsel-+
ing and housing for HIV/AIDS patientsI
in Jackson, Washtenaw, Livingston and
Lenawee counties. The program assists+
a community of patients in obtaining 3
health insurance and fulfilling other
basic needs.+
"(The restaurant) needs to support:

the community in which it lives," said
Gandy Dancer Manager Dan
Huntsbarger.
Gandy Dancer charged HARC only
their own costs for the events dinner.
Arbor Beverages donated wine for the
event. amongst other donations.
The gifts donated by local businesses
and members of the community are
expected to pay for the event, La Ferte
said. Many concerned members of the
community donate money to HARC in
lieu of attending the event, La Ferte
said. As much as 85 percent of the
money earned will go to direct cafe of
patients.
Ann Arbor City Councilmember
Christopher Kolb (D-5th Ward) helped
organize "Dining for Dollars." Kolb is
an honorary chair and a volunteer on
HARC's outreach program, which pro-
vides information to the community.
HARC is also supported by 'autBar
of Ann Arbor, owned by Keith Orr;and
Martin Contreras.
"It's important to give back to the
community that's supporting us in busi-
ness," Orr said. There is still a stima
attached to HIV/AIDS and the more we
can do to de-mystify it, the better, Orr
said.

State Senate passes 1996-97 budget

Engler's proposal to
cut adult education
stirs debate
LANSING (AP) - Tart partisan
wrangling over big cuts to adult edu-
cation and the budget in general
greeted debate yesterday over the
state's spending blueprint for the next
fiscal year.
The Michigan Senate passed three
bills, sending them to the House, in-
cluding a massive school aid measure

for the 1996-97 fiscal year.
The House, meanwhile, worked into
the evening and approved three other
budget bills, which now will proceed to
the-Senate.
It was the first floor action in the
Senate on the $8.6 billion general-fund
budget recommended by Gov. John
Engler. Altogether, when restricted and
federal money is added, the budget to-
tals $30.3 billion.
Heated debate was touched off in
both chambers by Engler's proposal to
eliminate adult education money from
the school-aid bill. This year, it totals

What's happening in Ann Arbor today

$185 million, but Senate leaders wrote
$65 million back in for the upcoming
fiscal year.
Democrats blasted Engler's cut, say-
ing that many people depend on adult
education to acquire the skills needed
for a job.
"What are we dooming these young
girls to?" demanded Sen. Jim
Berryman (D-Adrian), recounting a
recent visit to an adult education class
where students were fearful of losing
state support.
"These stories can be multiplied
throughout the state of Michigan," he
said, pushing an amendment to replace
all the lost money. "It's an avenue this
Legislature must not cut off."
But Sen. Dan DeGrow (R-Port Hu-
ron), chairman of the Senate Appro-
priations subcommittee on school aid,
defended the cut. He said local school
districts can place more money into
adult education if they want to.
"There's only so many dollars," he
said. "There are limits. We do have to
make choices."
Watched by a gallery full of adult
education supporters, the Senate re-
jected Berryman's amendment, but only
on a tie vote.
In thetend, the $307 million school
aid bill went to the House on a 24-13
vote. With less rancor, the Senate also
passed and sent to the House a $2.3
billion bill to finance the Department of
Community Health and a $1.3 billion
measure for the Department of Correc-
tions.
The House's share of the adult edu-
cation debate centered around the bud-
get for the Michigan Jobs Commission.
The House cut the $65 million from the
commission's budget that the Senate
had added to the school aid plan.
Engler had envisioned sending all
adult education funds to the Jobs Com-
mission to provide job training for
middle and high school students, lit-
eracy education for adults and other
programs.
