lies in circumstances like those on the panel.
Clinton and the panel discussed the problem of obtaining
insurance with pre-existing conditions, lack of funds for
aging children with chronic conditions, lack of insurance
payment for home care and the rapidly growing number of
Clinton suggested health care reform might include pool-
ing people needing private insurance into large interest
groups, such as a pool of small businessmen.
"That's the idea of the village, that's the idea of insur-
ance," she said.
She also suggested requiring social service recipients to
make sure their children are immunized and receive proper
health care exams.
Panel member and assistant Nursing Prof. Judy Cameron
said the current health care system creates a very fragmented
life for families. Clinton said doctors spend too much time on
the phone arguing about insurance to focus on families.
Cameron said, "It should not be left up to the heroics of a
few individuals. There should be a system in place."
Clinton said she believes children's hospitals to be more
cost-effective than regular health care in the long run, citing
the training of pediatricians and concentrated research as
major benefits. "But we have to pay for something in the
short run," she said.
The young patients presented Clinton with sweatshirts forthe
first family. The children also made a commemorative book.

member of the College Republicans.
"We're showing Ann Arbor that the young people care
about what happens to our country," he added.
Belleville resident Tony Piskorski also expressed displea-
sure at Clinton's tour stop in Ann Arbor. He said Clinton is
on a tour "to promote a book she didn't even write."
He added the cost of the tour to the taxpayers is expensive.
"That's the question - what it's costing," he said. "To me,
this is ridiculous."
Unfortunately for some, not everyone who waited in line
had the opportunity to meet Clinton.
Ann Arbor resident Genie Lange said she is "very disap-
pointed" at not meeting the first lady.
Clinton left Borders at 3:15 p.m. and walked across East
Liberty to attend a reception in the lobby of the Michigan
Theatre for members of her fan club.
"She has a schedule," said Dallas Moore, community
relations coordinator for Borders. "It wasn't our call."
Supporters clapped and cheered as Clinton crossed the
street. One fan yelled, "We love you!" In response, Clinton
waved and said, "Thank you."
About 150 to 200 fan club members greeted Clinton in the
theater. She stayed for 15 minutes, giving a short speech and
Borders did not have an estimate last night of how many
people attended the event or how many books were sold.
Clinton's next tour stop is in Chicago.
Protesters choosing to remain anonymous marched with covered faces outside the Statehouse In Lansing.

she gave hope through activism. "I came

Although funds were not increased,

Nora Salas, an LSA junior and public
opinion co-chair of Alianza, said the
rally was intended to raise public aware-
"Engler is being touted on a national
level as an example of how the states
should run things when state are given
more power by the Republican Con-
gress," Salas said. "I would not want
anyone in the country to get the impres-
sion that everything was all happy for
everyone in Michigan."
Brian Stull, a recent graduate of the
School of Social Work and an organizer
of the rally, said Engler's policies
"The number of penal institutions in
this state have quadrupled since he's
been in office," he said. "Meanwhile,
the number of educational institutions
has remained constant."
The protest, which started at 6 p.m.,

Schroer said the partisan rhetoricw*
indicative of the fact that Engler may
seek the Republican vice presidential
nomination. She said Engler's plan to
give environmentally friendly compa-
nies special privileges was made little
sense: "Are you going to give a com-
pany a permit to build in a wetland
because it has a clean slate?"
Sen. Alma Wheeler*Smith (D-Salein
Township), who gave the Democratic
response along with three other lawm*
ers, said she was concerned with Engler's
focus on building prisons.
"He's afraid to bring (higher educa-

funds will exceed money for universi-

she heard Dr. Joycelyn Elders speak'O
Monday about the funding difficulties
Elders gave the statistic that there
were three times as many prisons as
schools. "It's a large and important prob-
