Delgado said Michigamua wants to
clear up the racist association that the
SCC has placed with the society.
"We feel the most pertinent issue
now is the amount of slander and mis-
information the SCC has provided for
the community," he said. "Simply, we
are not racist, yet the SCC continues to
claim that this is an issue of racism,.
Reilly said he believes the SCC has
presented an objective consideration of
the events during the tower tours.

them to formulate their own opinions,"

SCC needs "to share with the cam-
pus community that they were misin-
formed," Delgado said. "The SCC
needs to take responsibility for every-
thing they have done."
But Reilly said the intent was to cul-
tivate change for Michigamua, not to
slander any individual members.
"If people have been harmed on an
individual level, we apologize. We
realize this whole thing has been diffi-
cult for everybody," he said,
Reilly said there is still a history of
racism with Michigamua that needs to
be changed.
"While they might not have been
informed of that history, it does not get
rid of the fact that they inherited a 98-
year-old tradition of degrading a spe-
cific racial group and they have
intentionally or unintentionally perpet-
uated these decisions," Reilly said. "TO
say that the organization is not racist is
not a true statement."
Michigamua members also had their
first meeting yesterday with University
President Lee Bollinger since Feb 6.,
the day KCC began their occupation of
the Michigan Union tower.
"It was not a meeting where we met
to find a resolution. It was not a negotia-
tion, it was a dialogue," Delgado said.

Most adolescents stay between six
months to a year at the center and are
released when they are ready to func-
tion normally within their families and
the community.
"We take a victim focused stance
in restorative justice work - it is to
get kids to be responsible and
accountable for the things they've
done and when possible, to make
direct reparations to their victims,"
Walsh said.
Arbor Heights residents - current-
ly nine boys and 16 girls - are housed
in the center during the week and
allowed home on the weekends.
They rise at 5:30 a.m, and attend in-
house classes at 7:40 a.m. While some
residents attend a full day of school at
the center, others attend morning
classes at nearby Huron High School.
"Every kid is tested when admitted
and a decision is made by teachers and
treatment teams as to whether we can
mainstream them," Richards said.
Those residents who attend Huron
High School during the morning also
attend classes at the center in the after-
Patricia Manley, Huron High
School's assistant principal and direc-
tor of guidance said the scheduling has
not caused any problems.
"It works out just fine, there haven't
been any major issues," Manley said.
Classes end by 2:10 p.m. leaving
time in the afternoon for doing
homework and attending therapy
sessions. Volunteers from campus
outreach groups work with the resi-
dents in the afternoons through
tutoring and mentoring, aiding in
their rehabilitation.
"The idea is to repair their relation-
ship with their community," Walsh
said. "We are about healing."
And while the center aids in the
rehabilitation of the residents, those
living at Arbor Heights are helping
others in return.
Today, the center's residents will
present a S500 check to Safe House, a
local domestic violence shelter. The
money was raised through a car wash
as part of their attempt to give back to
the community.

Clinton asks lawmakers to pass gun law
WASHINGTON - Complaining that Congress "has kept the American peo-
ple waiting long enough," President Clinton urged lawmakers yesterday to break
an eight-month deadlock and require background checks on gun show sales. But
Senate Republicans reacted cooly to Clinton's plea.
"We are poles apart," said Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), chairman of a House-
Senate negotiating committee charged with writing a compromise juvenile ju-
tice bill containing gun control provisions.
Clinton called on Congress to pass a gun bill by the April 20 anniversary of
the Columbine High School slayings a year ago.
"How many people have to get killed before we do something?" he asked.
A week after the fatal shooting of Michigan first-grader Kayla Rolland, Clin-
ton met privately with the 6-year-old girl's mother, Veronica McQueen. In a tele-
vision interview earlier, McQueen said, "I just don't want to see another parent
have to bury another baby over this, over something that is preventable, some-
thing that is very, very preventable."
With election-year politics clouding Congress' agenda, Clinton summoned the
leaders of the House-Senate conference committee led by Hatch. Last year, the
Senate voted to institute 72 hour background checks on gun show sales, but t
House rejected that provision when Republicans complained it was too strict ar
some Democrats complained it was too weak.
