Suspect steals
CDs; partiers
allow suspect
A homeowner in the 500 block of
Linden Street found two dead-bolted
doers kicked in early Saturday morn-
ing, Ann Arbor Police Department
reports state.
The man found a suspect hiding in
one of the upstairs bedroom's closet, at
which point the suspect handed the
musical selections to the homeowner,
saying "hold these."
V/hen the homeowner asked the sus-
pect to wait for the police, the suspect
punched him in the jaw and fled,
according to AAPD reports.
Several partygoers noticed the sus-
pect leaving the house and followed
him to the 1500 block of Washtenaw
Avenue, where he was arrested by
AAPD officers.
The suspect was arraigned yesterday
after being detained in the Washtenaw
Onty Jail AAPD officials say the
kicked-in bedroom doors can result in a
'breaking and entering charge, even
though the the suspect did not break
into the house.
Woman living in
'U' building
An employee in the Student
ivities Building called the
partment of Public Safety on
Friday morning to report that a
woman was residing in the atrium of
the building.
The caller said that the woman had
left several bags in the entrance area of
the building, which houses many
University offices, including the Office
of Admissions.
The caller requested that DPS
Icers remove the woman's
ongings and place them in a safe
place until the woman returned.
After combing the building, the offi-
cers did not come across the woman
or her bags.
Wallet, credit
cards stolen from

A woman called DPS on Thursday
night to report that her wallet was
missing after she had been in Tisch
Hall.
While the woman was cancelling her
credit cards, someone attempted to
withdraw money from an ATM
pMachine with her card, DPS reports
state.
PPS has no suspects and is currently
estigating the case.
E-mail message
details explicit
Websites
A woman who teaches at Washtenaw
Community College reported to DPS
on Thursday that she received a harass-
*e-mail message detailing a list of
pIt Websites that use explicit lan-
age.
The woman said she believed the e-

mail .came from a student who she
tured over to a WCC dean recently for
mentioning an offensive Website dur-
ing her class.
n There was no return e-mail address
listed on the message.
DPS officers addressed the situa-
by providing the caller with liter-
ature from the University's Sexual
Assault Prevention and Awareness
Center.

Programs target alcohol awareness, risks

I-- .3

By Debra Hirschfield
For the Daily
Recent alcohol-related deaths on college cam-
puses across the country make this year's Alcohol
Awareness Week especially relevant for University
students.
Marsha Benz, University Health Service health
education coordinator, said the death of two col-
lege students from excessive alcohol use at
Louisiana State University and the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology this fall should be an eye-
opener for college students.
"It is disturbing how it happens once and then it
occurs again," Benz said. "Didn't anyone pay
attention?"
This week's events, sponsored by UHS, the

Substance Abuse Education Network and the
Michigan State Medical Society, aim to increase
awareness of the physical and legal risks that
accompany alcohol use.
The programs are designed to increase student
understanding of the effects of alcohol use and to
offer tips on moderation.
Benz said these alcohol-related deaths continue
because students do not pay attention to the poten-
tial deadliness of alcohol use.
"Alcohol can be lethal," she said. "We try to get
the message out, but not everyone hears it.'
Alcohol Awareness Week Student Coordinator
Denise Sanderson said increasing awareness is the
most important goal of the program.
"Since alcohol is a problem on most campuses,

making students aware is the first place to start,"
said Sanderson, a Public Health second-year grad-
uate student.
The program coordinators have changed the
focus this year from a weeklong awareness cam-
paign to an effort to educate students about the con-
sequences of excessive alcohol consumption
throughout the year.
Benz and Sanderson said it will be productive for
students if the activities are spread out during the
year to give them extended access to information.
"We are changing the focus so that students can get
resources throughout the year," Benz said.
As a result, the number of events during this
year's Alcohol Awareness Week are fewer than in
previous years, Sanderson said.

Each month, student organizations plan an
activity, rather than limiting them to just one per
week," said Sanderson.
Benz said the involvement of various student
groups stirs more interest among students.
"Peers talking to peers is effective," Sanderson said.
Benz said the recent deaths on college campus-
es has prompted her to change her attitude regard-
ing substance abuse education. She said that
although she avoids using fear messages when
informing students, a minimal amount of fear
might be useful in getting students' attention today.
"It has been shown through research that fear
messages do not work," Benz said. "I usually don't
do fear messages, but due to recent deaths (it could
be effective):'

SACUA members
seek new benefits

Members of the faculty's governing
body are looking for benefits and com-
pensation comparable to their peers
who serve on similar boards at other
universities.
Several members of the nine-person
Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs discussed the salary
discrepancy at yesterday's meeting.
SACUA Chair Louis D'Alecy said
all members serve on two faculty sub-
committees and attend four-hour
SACUA meetings each week.
"They're volunteering a lot of their
time," D'Alecy said,
At an Oct. 20 meeting, SACUA
members spoke with Sandra Weiss,
chair of the University of California's
faculty's governing body, via confer-
ence call. Weiss said she and the
board's vice-chair receive $60,000 per
year and full time off for their work on
the board. The California board, how-
ever, oversees all the university's cam-
puses, while each of the University of
Michigan campuses have separate fac-
ulty governing boards.
The conversation prompted SACUA
member Lewis Kleinsmith to create a
similar plan of faculty governance
compensation that he said is more up to
date with other universities.-
"I was surprised to hear from people
at (the Committee on Institutional
Cooperation) and the people at the
University of California that many of
the other universities have both release
time and compensation," D'Alecy said.
The University allows only the
SACUA chair to receive some time off
from his department to head the board.
The chair, however, must forfeit half of
his salary.
The Office of the Provost recom-
mends the department cut the chair's
workload in half, but the SACUA chair

does not necessarily receive half of his
time off.
SACUA member and sociology Prof.
Donald Deskins said he agrees with
UC's system of giving the faculty's gov-
erning body chair and vice chair more
time off or increasing their compensa-
tion.
"They do a considerable amount of
work, and they deserve it," Deskins said.
D'Alecy said the change in benefits
might be necessary to attract new mem-
bers to SACUA, which is not accom-
plished in the present system.
"I think it makes it particularly
hard to get new blood in," D'Alecy
said. "You have to have a lot of con-
viction in your heart to volunteer and
face the devaluing of (SACUA mem-
bers)."
In past years, SACUA has tried to get
quarter time off for all members of the
committee, but the proposal was not
adopted by the administration.
SACUA member Barbara MacAdam
said the past setbacks should not dis-
courage this attempt.
"I see no problem raising it as a cur-
rent issue with our provost," said
MacAdam, adding that the new admin-
istration has been willing to hear pro-
posals regardless of past decisions by
the former administration.
SACUA member and Education
Prof. Valerie Lee said previous attempts
failed because the administration was
concerned about the monetary costs of
giving professors time off or increasing
their salaries.
"Immediately, it comes down to how
much will it cost and where does the
money come from,' Lee said.
D'Alecy said if the departments hive
to compensate for the financial differ-
ence, potential SACUA members from
weaker departments could be eliminated.
"A poor department can ill afford to
put someone forward," D'Alecy said

The flora isn't the only thing that attract crowds to the
University's Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
About 20 environmental supporters attended a public forum
last night with Rep. Lynn Rivers (D-Ann Arbor) to voice con-
cerns about national, state and local environmental laws.
Rivers said the meeting served as an occasion for her local
constituents to bring their ideas about environmental issues
directly to her. She encouraged the crowd to offer suggestions
about creating new laws that would reform current policies
and possibly create new bills to more adequately protect the
environment.
"Environmental problems are undeniable," Rivers said.
"It's also hard to get people to change their ways of life."
Issues of contention .varied from concerns over local air
and water pollution and wildlife control to the overwhelming
approval of the nuclear waste bill by both the House and the
Senate last week,
Some audience members expressed frustration at the coun-
try's somewhat "indifference" to environmental issues.

Art sophomore Cherie Beauton said she was appalled at
last week's passage of the nuclear waste bill, which will allow
a nuclear waste dump to be created in Nevada's Yucca
Mountains and permit interstate transportation of nuclear
waste to this destination.
"This waste will be travelling through 44 states," Beauton
said. "I was shocked to find out that many students weren't
even aware of the whole issue."
Beauton said she recently sent an e-mail to several campus
groups about the nuclear waste depository issue. She said that
while she had found some people were supportive of fighting
the proposed nuclear dump, many were at a loss of how
exactly to go about protesting it.
Rivers said she was not yet sure whether President Clinton
will approve the bill. Rivers and Rep. John Conyers (D-
Detroit) were the only two members of the Michigan delega-
tion to vote against the bill.
Rivers said many people feel there are few alternatives
when it comes to dealing with nuclear waste.
"Many people will say that they would rather have a
nuclear waste dump there, rather than here," Rivers said.

Fewer candidates, parties file for MSA fall elections

By Susan t. Port
Daily Staff Reporter
This fall's list of would-be members of the
Michigan Student Assembly is shorter than
usual.
Fewer parties and candidates filed by
Friday's 5 p.m. deadline than in recent MSA
election seasons. Three parties - the
Michigan Party, the Students' Party and the
Pissed Off at Korrupt Executives Party
(POKE) - and a host of independent candi-
dates filed for a total of 39 representative can-
didates. Last fall, eight parties and 101 candi-
dates filed for the election.
Representatives from the Michigan Party and
Students' Party are the majority of students run-
ning. Students running as independents or with
newer parties may have a more difficult time get-
ting elected, Nagrant said.
Nagrant said that after the Students' Party win
last spring, other potential candidates may have

realized that running with smaller parties is more
difficult than being associated with the more
established parties.
"I think last year's Students' Party big victory
pretty much polarized into two main parties,' said
Nagrant, an LSA senior. "I think people are more
reluctant to run for separate parties."
Nagrant said running with a party gives an extra
edge to first-year students who never have run
before.
"I think there is a lot of value running with par-
ties;" Nagrant said. "(Students) can learn tech-
niques of campaigning."
Dan Serota; who chairs the Michigan Party,
said running with a party is an advantage for
those who want to gain experience and wis-
dom from their peers.
Serota added that several people running
under a joint platform rather than numerous
individual platforms is less confusing for vot-

ers.
"I would like to think the Michigan Party has
built a reputation that students tend to support,"
said Serota, an LSA senior.
LSA Rep. Barry Rosenberg, who is running for
re-election as an independent, said he thinks it's
harder to run as an independent.
"One good thing about the parties is to help edu-
cate candidates about the process," said
Rosenberg, an LSA senior. "If you are a hard-
working candidate, it is possible to be elected as an
independent."
Rosenberg said serving on the assembly as an
independent has allowed him to have less restric-
tions when dealing with the issues.
"Being an independent allows me to focus on
issues without feeling bound to party lines,"
Rosenberg said.
Martin Cagin, who is running with the
POKE party, said he decided to run because he

is impressed with the POKE Party's platform.
Cagin said he may risk not getting elected by
not running with one of the more established
parties.
"I like some of the ideals they have,"said Cagin,
an LSA sophomore.
LSA first-year student Sarah Chopp said she
decided to run with the Students' Party
because she was impressed with the strength
of its platform.
Chopp added that running with the Studenits'
Party will help her publicize her candidacy during
the campaign. Chopp was appointed to a vacant
seat on the assembly-last month and is running to
keep the seat.
"The people I met in student government
became my mentors," said Chopp. "I definite-
ly wanted to run with a party, especially as a
freshman. We are working together for politi-
cal issues."
