Rose adds
chapter to
book on
eve Glick
For the Daily
Although former Michigan Student
Assembly President Fiona Rose is out
of the spotlight on campus, she has
attracted national attention recently.
Rose's term and election as MSA pres-
ident are highlighted in a new book and
in Glamour magazine's October issue.
Rose wrote a chapter in the book "So
Xp ant To Be President" published
Oxendine Pulishing. The book fea-
tures a compilation of articles by 25
student government presidents at col-
lege campuses around the country, pin-
pointing the strategies that helped them
get elected.
"A big school like yours should be in
a book like this. Your MSA races are
heated ... (Rose) is an atypical MSA
leader," said Oxendine Publishing
esident Butch Oxendine. He said
'ose is different from the other student
leaders in the book because she ran as a
sophomore and wasn't expected to win.
Glamour magazine also recently
chose Rose as one of Glamour's Top
Ten College Women of the Year. Judges
narrowed a field of 1,000 candidates to
10 winners who received a $1,000 cash
prize and a weekend trip to New York to
meet successful females in a variety of
creers. The winners also attended a
,ding of the Rosie O'Donnell show
and met O'Donnell and her guests,
actress Brooke Shields and athlete
I Martina Navritilova.
"The best part of the weekend was
meeting women both who have estab-
lished their careers successfully and
young women who are just starting on
their careers. It was an encouraging and
inspirational weekend," Rose said.
Lisa Cohen, Glamour editorial coor-
nator, said she selected Rose because,
during her MSA term, "she had a cru-
sade for college financial aid reform ...
and a strong presence on campus."
Rose's MSA running mate, Probir
Mehta, said it was natural to include a
piece about the University's student
government in the book.
"We're one of the most highly

LANSING (AP) - Democratic
gubernatorial candidates Larry Owen
and Doug Ross are within striking dis-
tance of Gov. John Engler, a poll
In potential matchups, Republican
Engler led Ross, 47 percent to 38 per-
cent; led Owen, 46 percent to 36 per-
cent; and led former U.S. Sen. Don
Riegle, who is mentioned as a possible
candidate, 45 percent to 41 percent,
according to the EPIC/MRA poll pub-
lished in yesterday editions of the
Lansing State Journal.
The poll of 600 likely voters, con-
ducted between Sept. 15-18, has a
margin of error of 4 percentage
Incumbents are generally consid-
ered vulnerable if they stay below 50

"The public doesn't know these

ernment, more welfare, you're going
to see their numbers drop dramati-
cally," Truscott said.

House approves ban on select
riders in pickup truck beds

Former MSA President Fiona Rose, who has recently written a chapter for the
book "So You Want To Be President."

regarded schools. They're going to want
a chapter from us ... (Our campaign)
was a different, mold-breaking, sopho-
more campaign," he said.
Mehta said the Michigan Party cam-
paign emphasized "working harder, not
with more money."
University Regent Rebecca
McGowan (D-Ann Arbor) has worked
with Rose on various issues, including
child care resources on campus and stu-
dent financial aid.
"I have nothing but enormous respect
and affection for her. Every time that a
Michigan student is acknowledged in
their field, I think that's terrific. It's
another fantastic day for Michigan."
Rose starts her chapter by talking
about losing a bid for MSA vice presi-
dent during her first year at the
University. Rose advised student lead-
ers to network because many people
run for student government president
late in their college career when "trial
and error doesn't work."
Rose also describes various methods
she used to get people to pay attention.
Using creative slogans such as "At the

University of Michigan, Roses are
Blue" and techniques that reach all
kinds of students are most effective,
Rose said.
Law second-year student Josh
Ryland said Rose's recognition is bene-
ficial for the entire University.
"Any time that someone does some-
thing positive on a national scope that's
associated with a school, like writing a
book, it's good for the school. Not only
for the publicity, but it also shows the
caliber of the students at the school,"
Ryland said.
University Vice President for Student
Affairs Maureen Hartford frequently
worked with Rose during her time on
the assembly. Hartford complimented
Rose's abilities and recalled Rose's trip
to the White House last winter where
she met President Clinton.
Rose "spoke in the Oval Office off
the cuff about financial aid for stu-
dents. It was picked up on cameras
and broadcasted by CNN. A lot of 20
year olds would be intimidated
(speaking on national TV)," Hartford

Farm and construction workers
exempt from new laws that prohibits
riding in the back of pick-ups
LANSING (AP) - House lawmakers voted yesterday to
outlaw the practice of riding in the beds of pickup trucks, but
exempted a select group of people.
After a slew of amendments were attached exempting farm
and construction workers, people 16 and over and volunteer
search-and-rescue workers, some lawmakers were left shak-
ing their heads.
Rep. David Gubow (D-Huntington Woods) summed it
up: "Let me get this straight ... If you're under age 16
and you're not engaged in the course of employment and
you're not on a search-and-rescue mission, then the dri-
ver of the vehicle could be subject to a civil infraction,"
he said.
"We're making a very baby step forward."
But others, like Rep. Don Gilmer (R-Augusta) said the bill
"begs the question why we are trying to outlaw stupidity."
Rep. Deborah Cherry (D-Burton) introduced the bill
in February, but it went nowhere until a fatal crash in
Jackson County's Concord Township on July 29. Two
women and nine children died in the crash, while two
other children were critically injured.
Eight of the 11I who died were riding in the truck bed under

a truck cap.
Police said the pickup truck driven by Elaine Jackson of
Albion ran a stop sign on a dirt road and then collided with
a dump truck towing a back hoe.
The accident, ranked the worst in state history, prompted
a new effort to pass a bill that's languished in the Legislature.
since 1991.
Gilmer argued that in the latest case, Jackson broke three
existing laws: she drove without a license, ran a stop sign and
didn't put the children in safety belts.
"Maybe this fourth law would have made the differ-
ence. Maybe this law could have stopped this tragic
accident, but I doubt it," Gilmer said.
Cherry expressed her disappointment after the 67-37 vote
to adopt the amended measure.
"The one that really disappointments me is the age amend-
ment ... because it's unsafe for everyone. It's an unsafe practice.
However, the amendments exempting farm and construc-
tion workers could make the bill more palatable to senators,
who now get the bill.
Rep. Candace Curtis (D-Swartz Creek) reminded her"
colleagues that pickup trucks were never designed to
haul human beings, but cargo. She said accidents could
be avoided if drivers stuck to using pickups to haul
things, not people.
"If this is a problem, then go buy a minivan," she said.
"You can transport 10 people safely."
