Daily Staff Reporter
After the announcement that
keynote speaker Nadine Strossen,
president of the American Civil
Liberties Union, could not attend
Thursday night's Diversity Days
event, the crowd of more than 200
people quickly diminished to about
150.
The audience was told that Strossen
was suddenly called away to protest the
proposal by Alabama's governor to
implement the Ten Commandments
into the state's school system.
The event continued despite
Strossen's absence, as the audience
turned its attention to speaker Greer
Dawson Wilson, the former director of
Newcomb Hall and University Union at
the University of Virginia, an acclaimed
diversity expert.
Just before the announcement of
Strossen's absence, the audience was
welcomed to the Power Center event by
58 Greene, a 12-student a cappella
singing group.
Wilson greeted the audience with
"good evening.' When there was no
response she repeated herself and audi-
ence members answered.
The focus of Wilson's speech cen-
tered around what she called "making a

I human connection.'
"People with power have got to share
and make a significant difference and
they have to connect. If they don't then
we are all in trouble," Wilson said.
Wilson began her talk with her per-
sonal interpretation of diversity.
"I'm talking about bringing people
together of all races and religions and
ideas," Wilson said.
She told students they need to be pre-
pared for the diverse workforce of the
next century.
"If you're not prepared for your boss
to look like me or for you boss to be in a
wheelchair then you're not going to have
ajob," Wilson said.
Before the opening of the Power
Center auditorium, the lobby was lined
with about 30 different student group

information tables. The tables included
the Muslim Students Association's
Islamic Jeopardy game and the Indian
American Student Association's com-
puter display of Indian cultural contribu-
tions. The Hong Kong Students'
Association was also among the groups
that participated.
LSA first-year student Louis Shane
HKSA's cultural secretary, said it was
important for students to know about
Hong Kong's history.
"It is a special place,' Shan said. "It
is the last place in the world to be con-
trolled by another country."
The audience was diverse in itself,
from University students to community
members.
LSA sophomore Jeff Su said he
enjoyed Wilson's speech because she
touched on issues he could relate to.
"I thought it was good that in order to
cooperate with others you have to meet
others by giving of yourself in order to
cooperate with them better" Su said.
Other members of the audience said
they came to the lecture to gain insight
on diversity issues.
Ann Arbor Human Rights
Commission director Michael Koon
said he came in search of new strategies
and ideas involving diversity.,
"I came because a lot of my life is
wrapped up in these issues," Koen said.
"I don't know all the solutions so I keep
looking for solutions"
Koen said he did not agree with one
of the aims of Diversity Days.
"I agree with (Wilson's) remarks but
I disagree with (one) objective of it to
encourage tolerance and harmony,"
Koen said, adding that people should
accept, rather than merely tolerate
diversity. "It shows also the people who
are putting this on still have some learn-
ing to do."
Wilson advised crowd members not
to be afraid to talk with people who are
different from themselves.
"You can certainly try to take the risk
and not be afraid," Wilson said.
In her final point, Wilson told the
audience that "diversity means fairness.
It does not mean one size fits all."
The event concluded with a play
titled "That's What I Think" written and
directed by LSA sophomore Amit
Vaidya.

ed in education in general," Agarwal
said.
The week-long calendar of events
includes a mouse-trap car contest, egg
drop competition and paper airplane
contest. Movies related to engineering
will also be shown for students.
"It should be pretty good," said
AnneMonterio, assistant dean for
Engineering student affairs. "The intent
is to spread the word about engineering"
Agarwal said yesterday's low turnout
at the opening event should not be an
indication of the level of participation
expected this week, as some students

already have plans to participate in var
ious scheduled events. a
"A bunch of us are getting together to
do some stuff," said Engineering senior
Andrew Eleazar. "We're fairly involved."
In addition to the intellectual contests,
students will gather for some physical
fun Wednesday night at the CCRB and
cap off the week with a dance Saturday
night at the Michigan League.
"We're definitely playing volleyball;'
Engineering senior Kim Snodgrass said.
University students can sign up as part
of a team to participate in any of the
events or may participate individually.
Information is available at tables in'
Pierpont Commons or via the internet at

CHICANO
Continued from Page IA
Castillo's poems - many of which
are sprinkled with Spanish words and
phrases - also emphasize memories
and experiences from her childhood.
She titled the yet-unpublished poem
dedicated to Ortiz, "Like the people of
Guatemala, I want to be free of these
memories," a quote from Ortiz.
In the poem, Castillo painted a
poignant scene of the torture Ortiz
experienced. "She fell on other bodies,
some alive, some beheaded. This is
what is known as the nightmare from
which a person would not, and could
not awake," she read.
Ortiz survived the ordeal but still has
not received an explanation from the
Guatemalan government.
Audience members said they were
impressed by Castillo's presentation. "I
thought it was excellent" said RC senior
Maria Job. "I like the fact that her more

recent work is very political?'
Castillo noted that the audience was
the "most quiet group I have experi-
enced in a long time," after only a hand-
ful of people asked questions.
Castillo's latest collection of short sto-
ries, "Loverboys," was published last
August. She recently completed her
fourth novel, and said she goes back to
it every chance she gets to "revise it and
polish it." The novel will be released in
1998, along with a book of poetry. She
has also written the novels "The
Mixquiahuala Letters," "Sapogonia"
and "So Far from God."
A resident of Chicago and a full-time
writer, Castillo said she usually works on
"about four books at once?'
Engineering sophomore Lucy
Arellano, a co-chair of La Voz
Mexicana, said the week reached a large
number of students this year. "(The
turnout) was a lot more than last year"
she said. "A lot of people came out from
the woodwork and represented.'

in our society as anyone else is,"
Gerwick said. "No one should be made
to feel like an outcast for showing their
affection.'
Gerwick said sexual orientation does
not determine one's tolerance level.
"People assume if you accept homo-
sexuality that you are homosexual or
bisexual,"Gerwick said. "Just because I
am heterosexual doesn't mean I can't
accept homosexuality."
LSA first-year student Jill Durocher
agreed that Kiss-In was important in
order to be visual to the general public.
"The most imnortant thing todav is

toward the one I loved in public, I
would be upset."
Music first-year student Anna Novick
said the event tries to make homosexual
relationships a familiar sight.
"I think it's good to make it normal to
see homosexuals kiss each other,"
Norvick said.
LSA junior Cory Fryling said he was
pleased that many attended the event.
"I am very happy with the turnout.'
Fryling said. "I think people walking
around got a good look and saw what is
going on."
Fryling said kissing between same-
sex couples must be an accepted prac-
tice.
"I think it's oreat for uavs leshians.
