Students search
for part-time jobs

By Alero Fregene
For the Daily
Jobs are plentiful in Ann Arbor,
according to a recent study, but many
say that University students looking
for work should start hitting the pave-
ment now.
Fifty percent of Ann Arbor employ-
ers want new employees, according to
a study by Manpower, Inc., and many
students flock to local businesses in
search of employment.
Daniel Switzer, general manager of
Steve and Barry's on State Street, is
not worried about a shortage of
employees.
"Anyone who can work game days,
is excited about school, has flexibility
with schedule, jokes around and
smiles will be hired," Switzer said.
"Lots of students are looking for jobs.
Everyone wants a job for the school
year."
While there are still jobs available,
students may no longer have their
choice of employment locations.
Crown House of Gifts manager
Cathy Castle said most of her store's
15 positions were filled before the stu-
dents arrived back in Ann Arbor.
"No, there are not enough jobs.
Tons of students apply" Castle said.
While many students fill out hun-
dreds of applications for Ann Arbor
and University jobs this time of year,

they harbor mixed emotions about
finding a job.
LSA senior Jon Jellema did not
attempt to get a University-sponsored
job. He is currently an employee of
Bivuoac on State Street.
"I was under the impression that
most of the jobs on campus go to
work-study students," he said.
Some students said University jobs
are a hot commodity because employers
work around different class schedules.
"They are flexible with your sched-
ule, more understanding," said LSA
senior Claudia Leone.
Leone said she's not encouraged
about her chances of finding part-time
employment at the University. "You
need (to be a) work-study (student) to
work at the International Center," said
Leone, who hails from Argentina.
Leone said since she's an interna-
tional student, she's not eligible for a
work-study position.
Essentially, the chances of getting
hired are pretty high, said Terry Poole,
owner of Mrs. Peabody's Cookies Ice
Cream and Yogurt on North University
Avenue. "We rely heavily on students,"
Poole said. "Sixty to 70 percent of

AJA DEKIEVA COHEN/Daily
LSA first-year student Courtnee Clark works part-time at Stucci's on South University Avenue. This ice cream and frozen
yogurt establishment is one of many stores and restaurants in Ann Arbor that employ University students.

Neither a resident nor a work-study
student, Basu said she really wants to
assist a professor but feels limited by
her international student status.
"There are very limited assistance-
ships available to international stu-
dents," Basu said.
As a work-study student,
Engineering first-year student Jennifer
Brand is confident she will find a job.
"I'm on work study, so I pretty much
have to have one," Brand said. "Not that

my parents can't afford it, but I would
like to work to satisfy myself and also
for financial independence"
LSA sophomore Stacie Williamson,
who is employed at the South Quad
front desk, said she was "definitely"
working for the extra money.
Castle said one prerequisite comes in
making a good first impression based
largely, if not totally, on appearance.
"You don't have to have on a $300
suit," Castle said.

Kaki Orr, a day manager at
Domino's Pizza on State Street, said
among other requirements like a valid
driver's license, a prospective student
driver should "be able to read a map
and not be totally ignorant."
Students also compete with perma-
nent Ann Arbor residents for jobs.
Lisa Weiss, Bivuoac's women's cloth-
ing buyer said, "Because of the location,
we have a lot of students, but we don't
care whether you're a student or not."

Blood
supply at
critical
shortage:
DETROIT (AP) - Blood supplies
are thin at about two-thirds of the
nation's American Red Cross regions,
prompting a nationwide appeal for
donations.
"I would say this has been one of the
more serious decline in donations
we've had. I can say it's one of the most
serious but I can't quantify it," said
Michael Fulwider, a spokesperson at
Red Cross headquarters in Virginia.
"We are seeking immediate blood
donations. ... 25 of our 38 blood regions
nationwide have a day-and-a-half or less
supply of type O blood," he said.
In Detroit, the Southeastern
Michigan region was completely out of
type O negative blood yesterday morn-
ing, said spokesperson Lisa Raycraft.
Type O negative is the so-called univer-
sal donor that may be safely given to
other blood types in an emergency.
"I've been here five and a half years
and this is the worst it's ever been. I've
been out of (type) O by 2 p.m. just about
every day"said Jeff Weathers, the Detroit
region's director of hospital services. '
"I bite my nails a lot. I started .to
work on other staff, I bring them in and
chew on their nails," he said yesterday.
Traditionally, blood donations slow
over the summer, said Eric Slayton of the
American Association of Blood Banks.
"Going into the Labor Day weekend
is usually a scary time because there is
a shortage of units" he said. The prob-
lem is partly that students leave schools
and universities, while other people
who donate are busy with vacation
plans or other summer activities.
"We're not at a crisis period nation-
wide. We're in a spot emergency. There
are specific areas around the country
that are seeing acute shortages,"
Slayton said.
"You really notice it if there's a trag-
ic auto accident; then you're in real
trouble:'
In Portland, Ore., the Pacific
Northwest region was appealing for all
type O blood as well as Rh-negative
types A, B and AB.
"No patient has gone without blood.
We're juggling hospital inventories,"
regional spokesperson Donna Neely
said.
"This is the worst summer we've had
in years. I think part of it has to do with
the way the holidays fell, because it
seemed like a lot of people stretched
those holidays in long weekends' dr
longer vacations," Neely said.

"Everyone should know what the
rules are and once you know those
rules, they should be black and white,"
Goss said.
Goss said he will be fair but deci-
┬žive when making decisions about
ring and firing coaches. In recent
ears, athletic directors have been
criticized for not being assertive
enough when making personnel
4decisions.
"Under my administration, we will
not just go out and shoot someone"'

someone go? Yes. Do I need to work

Goss said he is excited to take on
his new position, which he accepted
on the advice of his predecessors.
"A few weeks ago, I called a few
'pople, including Don Canham" Goss
'said. "Don said, 'You can have some
'fun with this."'
'Goss emphasized the importance of
tradition in the Athletic Department.
"I think there's a real need for every-
ein the department to understand
what tradition is about," Goss said.
"We have to bring that tradition back
.. from our coaches to everyone who's
involved. That tradition means some-
thing. At the end of the day, we all
want the same thing - the best pro-
gram in America. And I think we will
'have that."
As athletic director, Goss will
save his fair share of challenges

pointing football seasons, Goss will
confront the results of an investiga-
tion into numerous allegations of

Boll inger originally thought the
report would be ready for yesterday's
press conference, but it was delayed.
"I hope that in the next two weeks,
we will be able to tell the public what
we intend to do with the results," he
said.
Goss received his undergraduate
education at the University and played
football from 1966-68. He was an All-
Big Ten defensive tackle in 1968.
Since his days on campus, Goss

Archer faces two candidates
in mayoral primary today

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer is count-
ing on visions of casinos, stadiums and renewal to propel him
into a second four-year term.
Archer faces state Rep. Ed Vaughn and meat packer Rosa
Garmendia in a primary election today. The top two candi-
dates advance to the general election, and Archer and Vaughn
are strong favorites over Garmendia, who has raised virtually
no money.
And Archer is considered the strong favorite over Vaughn
in the general election. The mayor can point to plans for two
new stadiums and three casinos, and says the city has seen
several improvements on his watch, including decreases in
crime, scores of new development projects and improved city
services.
Archer's connections with Detroit's business community
have brought him a campaign chest estimated at more than
$3.5 million. So far, he's the only candidate to air broadcast
television ads.
"The only people who can beat Dennis Archer this year are
either dead, in jail or out of town;' says William Noakes, a
Wayne County administrator and longtime local political
observer. "Archer will have a cakewalk."

Those aren't the sentiments Archer expresses in public.
"I'm just going to work real hard and run like I'm 30 points
behind," Archer told the Detroit Free Press. "I'm taking noth-
ing for granted"
Vaughn, 63, has campaigned with the slogan "unbought
and unbossed" and says Archer is too generous to outside
interests.
"Archer is giving the city away," he told The Detroit News.
"Privatizing left and right. Doing away with jobs. Depopulating
the city. If he's in there another eight years, there won't be any
city of Detroit left. It will be owned lock, stock and barrel by
private corporations."
Vaughn stumps largely for improved city services, particu-
larly streetlights, bulk garbage pickup and programs to deal
with abandoned buildings. He also says Archer isn't ensuring
enough participation by Detroiters in new development pro-
jects, and urges more youth programs.
It's a message he tells by mailing literature and going door-
to-door six days a week. Vaughn thinks his one-on-one con-
tact may offset the disparity in resources.
"We're just going to keep hammering away with our grass-
roots campaign;' Vaughn said.

Regent Daniel Horning (R-Grand

"I'm thrilled and I look forward to
our regents' meeting when we will have
to put him into office," Horning said. "I
think that his record speaks for itself,
and I look forward to the direction that
the college athletic program will turn."
Students said that they are hopeful
about the arrival of the new athletic
director. LSA first-year student Andrea
Loewen said she hopes Goss will be
able to handle the struggle he has
before him.
"I think it's going to be a big chal-

Loewen said.

The recent report is not the first com-
plaint that has been filed with the Ann
Arbor Police Department against the
Nectarine. In 1995, HUES, a biracial
woman's magazine, filed a complaint
against the Nectarine for discrimina-
tion.
Darilis Garcia, a University
alumnae, said that HUES held a
fund-raiser at the Nectarine and
attendees were faced with racial
and cultural discrimination similar
to that which the Ramirez family
allegedly received.
"I don't think the Nectarine real-
ized how many people of color were
going to be there," Garcia said. "We

"I want the University to support the
school;' Cantor said. "I want people to
feel if there's a new venture (they would
like to do) ... there are still ways to do
that."
The provost also discussed her plans
to try and attend all Senate Assembly
meetings in order to get a better feel for
the needs of the faculty. The Senate
Assembly, a gathering of all members

of the faculty body, meets once a
month.
Carol Loveland-Cherry, vice-chair of
SACUA and Nursing School associate
professor, said she hopes the strong
relationship that she's always seen
between the provost and faculty will
continue.
"It's always been very produc-
tive," said Loveland-Cherry, adding
that the role of faculty input in
University decisions is essential to
continuing this positive relation-
ship.
