theft of 8,700 copies yesterday's edition
pf The Michigan Daily from campus.
Candidates said that without the sched-
ules printed in the Daily, students didn't
know where and when they could vote.
"There's no Dailys around so people
don't where to vote," Tudisco said.
The MSA Election Code restricts
candidates from campaigning within
50 feet of voting tables. With candi-
dates stationed in doorways and lob-
bies, however, they still have a chance
to influence the voters.
"You're not interested unless some-
one comes up to you and asks you and
makes it personal," said LSA first-year
student Jaileah Huddleston, who said
-she only voted because a candidate ap-
proached her as she entered the Shapiro
Undergraduate Library to study. "If he
hadn't have come up to me, I wouldn't
have voted."
While some students voted because
of convenience or personal appeals,
others said they consistently vote in
MSA elections.
"You can't complain about anything

if you don't vote," said Jori Cohen, an
LSA senior.
MSA President Flint Wainess, who
campaigned yesterday for the Michi-
gan Party, said student awareness about
MSA and campus issues has increased
in the last year.
"People are talking about MSA -
it's setting an agenda on campus,"
Wainess said. "More people are voting
pro-actively and are making informed
Liberty Party presidential candidate
Martin Howryiak said that although the
Liberty Party did campaign yesterday,
it tried to stay away from polling sites.
"The time for campaigning is before
the election," Howrylak said.
United Peoples' Coalition vice presi-
dential candidate Johnny Su also said
last-minute campaigning is unnecessary.
"I don't know whether they are vot-
ing on an informed basis if they have
not been following it all along," Su
Members of the Students' Party re-
fused to comment on the election.
Candidates avoided the usually tar-
geted Diag yesterday in respect for

of the Student Press Law Center in
Arlington, Va., said that 37 largescale
thefts occurred nationwide in the '93-
'94 school year, and that 29 occurred in
the '94-'95 year.
Goodman said few of the incidents
ever repeat themselves, and that admin-
istrative and legal reaction is key to
preventing a recurrence.
"If school officials immediately
come forward and say this action can-
not be tolerated ... that usually stops
it from happening again," Goodman
Michael Fribush, general manager of
The Diamondback, the University of
Maryland's student newspaper, said that
when a large number of its papers were
removed from circulation in 1993, his
newspaper made a successful effort to
pass a state law against the theft of
Fribush said about half of The
Diamondback's 20,000-21,000 circu-
lation was stolen. He said the provoca-
tive role of a newspaper must not be
"When you're at a newspaper,
whether you write about race or write
about anything, if you get complaints,
you know you're doing something
right," Fribush said.
UPC vice presidential candidate
Johnny Su said that even though a
quote from a Daily editorial that al-
luded to his party was mentioned in the
fliers, he does not consider the Daily to
be racist, merely irresponsible in its
coverage of small MSA parties.
He said he knows nothing about the
thefts, noting that just because an ex-
cerpt from a Daily editorial was used
as an example of alleged racism, the
party should in no way be connected to
the thefts.
"I have no idea who took the papers,"
Su said.
Althea Capul, an LSA sophomore
running with UPC, said the removals
were "unethical."
"The Daily has a responsibility to be
open-minded and as fair as they can be,
but they're still a newspaper and have a
right to say what they want about stu-
dent parties," Capul said.
"The removal ofthe papers is deplor-
able. It just makes for bad feelings all
around. It's just plain petty."

Maker of Ritalin
warns against nisuse
NEWARK, N.J. - Stung by reports
that schoolchildren are snorting and
injecting the drug Ritalin to get high,
the primary maker of the hyperactivity
medicine has begun a campaign to curb
its abuse.
Ciba Pharmaceuticals is sending pam-
phlets on the proper use of the drug to
more than 100,000 pharmacists and
110,000 doctors this week, hoping they
will pass them onto school nurses and
"We want to reach the people who
may be treating the medication a little
too casually," said Todd Forte, a
spokesperson for Swiss drug and
chemical maker Ciba-Geigy Corp.'s
U.S. pharmaceutical subsidiary in
Summit, N.J.
While Ritalin has been used for more
than 40 years, abuse has grown in
recent years as more children are diag-
nosed with attention deficit-hyperac-
tivity disorder, which leaves children
inattentive, impulsive and sometimes
uncontrollable. ,

Dems thwart GOP wilderness proposal
WASHINGTON - Senate Democrats turned back a Re-
publican wilderness proposal yesterday, maintaining that while
2 million acres of fedefal land in Utah would be protected,
millions more would be opened to mining and development.
The Utah wilderness provision deadlocked the Senate for
nearly three days as Democrats refused to accept a broader publics
land bill unless the section on Utah wilderness was stripped away.
After the bill's supporters, including Utah's two senators,
failed to get the required 60 votes to cut off debate, Majority
Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) withdrew the entire bill from
consideration. The vote was 51-49.
It represented a major victory for environmentalists who
had seen a string of setbacks in recent weeks in the Senate, including the inabilit

Sierra Club. "This could be a real turning point."
