Participants prepare for
big IASA show tonight
By Nika Schulte
Daily Staff Reporter
Last year, Aparna Arunkumar watched
the dances and skits of the annual Indian
American Student Association Cultural
Show as an audience member and
instantly knew she wanted to exchange
her seat for a spot on stage.
"I saw it and knew I had to be a part
of it," Arunkumar said.
Tonight, Arunkumar, now an LSA
first-year student, will perform with
more than 300 other participants in
front of a sold-out crowd at Hill
Auditorium as IASA presents the 15th
anniversary of the show.
Using the theme "The Big Picture,"
IASA will present the skits, dances and
videos as if they were on television.
Co-coordinator of the event Arvind
Grover said IASA chose this particular
theme so the topic, which might be unfa-
miliar to some audience members, would
at least be presented in a familiar way.
"TV is a media everyone is accus-
tomed to," said Grover, an LSA junior.
"It's much easier to have a media to
pass the message through"
LSA senior Anjum Gupta, who co-
coordinated the show, said the theme
also stresses the importance of diversi-
ty within the Indian culture.
The event "shows how Indian culture
differs within, but also has unity."
Gupta said "The Big Picture" is also
instrumental in promoting awareness of
Indian American culture.
"It encourages people to take a step
back and see the big picture," Gupta said.
LSA sophomore Ava Lala, who will
be performing in the traditional dance
"Mosaic," said the show will introduce
aspects of the Indian culture, as prepar-
ing for the performance did for her.
"I didn't have a very strong Indian
influence. I didn't know the cultural
activities," Lala said. "By participating
in the show I have learned so much.
"We are all guilty of only knowing
about ethnic backgrounds from the rep-
resentations of TV" Lala said. "That
means for some people all they know
about Indian culture is from Apu on the
"By coming to the show, they can
learn about the culture, see how ornate
the costumes are," she added.
For Engineering sophomore Anu
Agarwal, tonight's performance is a
way to carry on traditions and perpetu-
ate the culture.
"As an Indian American it's impor-
tant to observe both (cultures). If you
don't take part in cultural activities like
this, the Indian part can get lost,"
LANSING (AP) - House
Democrats got their first taste of GOP
control yesterday when they elected
minority - rather than majority -
leaders for the 1999-2000 session.
Democrats chose Rep. Mike Hanley
(D-Saginaw) as minority leader.
Hanley, who was elected to his third
two-year term Tuesday, said the
Democratic agenda would not be
ignored in the GOP-dominated state
House Republicans plan to elect their
leaders this Tuesday.

Michigan Republicans regained con-

tion with a 58-52 seat advantage, the
same Democrats now hold.
Republicans still control the Senate,

Hanley said House Democrats will
keep pushing their agenda, including a
core curriculum for public schools,
funding for community policing pro-
grams and local control of roads.
"We intend to fight hard and fair and
make sure the Democrats, the values
they represent, the constituents thjs
they represent are at the table in the ne.t
session,, Hanley said at a news confer-
ence introducing new leaders.
The Senate also elected new leaders
yesterday, and both chambers put off
work on major bills until next week.
Term limits, which took effect in the
House with this election, already has
made an impact. It was the golden
opportunity Republicans had predicted
in winning several seats long held by
Democrats in districts that have slightly
more GOP voters.

Students across the country are com-

The University of Michigan and Yale
University head this movement with
National Student Partnerships. Yale
junior Brian Kreiter and Yale sopho-
more Kirsten Lodal founded NSP to
combat the national unemployment
problem using the academic skills of
The University came aboard as the
second school in the nation to assemble
an NSP office. Ann Arbor is the loca-
tion for the Midwest Regional Office.
"It's important for adults and the gov-
ernment to understand we are a genera-
tion of leaders," said David Singer, an
LSA junior and president of the
This past summer, NSP received the
support of the national Department of
Labor in Washington, D.C.
Members of that department as well
as other Washington experts are expect-
ed to be a part of the NSP Advisory
Board. Tim Barnacle, the director for
the National Center for Education and
Economic Development, is expected to
head that board.
NSP garnered financial support
totalling more than $50,000 in federal
grants and is working to raise more.
NSP also filed a 501 C3 tax form and
gained non-profit status.
Since the Yale office began function-
ing a little more than a month ago, the
staff has grown to 40, and 200 addition-
al universities - including the
University of Michigan - created
chapters in the organization.
"The University has been very posi-
tive," Singer said.
The group plans to work with
ProjectSERVE, the Center for
Community Service and Learning and
the Michigan Student Assembly, among
other community groups.
"I'll be helping them out and sup-
porting them as they get things started
on campus," said Heidi Lubin, chair of
the MSA Community Service Board.
Lubin, an LSA junior, said her con-
cern is for NSP to work with clients

names of unemployed people.
Students then act as matchmakers,
placing the clients in jobs that match
their skills, Singer said.
For example, if a mother cannot work
because she lacks the money for child
care, NSP has a list of daycare agencies
willing to reduce prices or donate ser-
vices for NSP, he said.
"We want to direct (clients) to (exist-
ing) organizations that maybe they were
unaware of" said Chris McIntyre, the
Midwest regional director in the Yale
When it comes to finding a job, the
unemployed fill out resumes, but no one
is acting on their behalf, McIntyre said.
NSP plans to solicit their clients to
local businesses. In exchange for
accepting one of NSP's clients, the busi-
ness will receive free advertising,

"It's a situation where everyone

to begin by the winter semester.
Singer said NSP has many jobs for
qualified students. Students in the
School of Business Administration
can work in finance and communica-
tion students can work in media rela-
tions, he added.
