tmore: Affirmative action necessary

DETROIT (AP) - Racial equality remains a distant
hope, and America needs to recommit itself to closing
the gap between whites and minorities, Vice President
Al Gore said at a Democratic fundraiser last night.
The expected Democratic presidential nominee
addressed 350 people at a $300-a-person Democratic
National Committee event at the opulent, historic
etroit Athletic Club.
Earlier yesterday, Gore held a $20,000-a-person
DNC fund-raiser at the home of former ambassador
to Norway David Hermelin in the Detroit suburb of
Bingham Farms. Together, the events raised an esti-
mated $705,000.
The average black or Hispanic family has one-tenth
the wealth of the average white family, he said at the

Athletic Club. Gore blamed'the gap on the cumulative
effect of centuries of racial discrimination.
"I support affirmative action because it's still
needed in our country, and we need to fight for it,"
Gore said. He mocked Republicans who say they
oppose policies that take race into account.
"'We're advocating a color-blind society,' some of
them say. Hellooooo," Gore said. "They use that
color-blind like duck hunters use a duck blind. They
hide behind it and hope the ducks don't notice."
Unequal wealth means many potential young
black entrepreneurs never get the family financial
backing that is key to the success of their white
counterparts, he said.
The nation as a whole suffers when any group is

denied full participation i its development, Gore said.
"That is a limit on our economic growth," he said.
The vice president aimed several barbs at Texas
Gov. George W. Bush, saying the Republican presi-
dential candidate should listen to GOP rival Sen.
John McCain on the issue of tax cuts debt reduction.
Bush's tax cut proposal would undercut efforts to
reduce the national debt Gore said, echoing a view
expressed by McCain before he stopped actively
seeking the Republican presidential nomination.
"Bush said he didn't learn anything from McCain,"
Gore said. "He should have been taking notes."
After spending the night with a Troy family, Gore
is scheduled to spend the school day today at L'Anse
Creuse Middle School in suburban Detroit.

voting this year because people are
seeing and hearing more about the
elections.
"'Plus, it's fun and easy. You don't
have to do anything to vote because
it's all by computer," Nebulon said.
Jessica Curtin, the vice presiden-
tial candidate for the Defend Affir-
mative Action Party, said she feels
the high voter turnout is due to MSA
becoming more politicized.
"Students realize the importance
of these elections with the upcoming
lawsuits. The outcome of these elec-
tions is of national importance,"
Curtin said.
Elise Erickson, the vice presiden-
tial candidate for the Blue Party,
said the number of candidates run-
ning caused many students to cast
ballots.
"All of the candidates heightened
all of the competition. There were all
of these people out there campaign-
ing in so many different ways. Hide-
ki (Tsutsumi, the independent
presidential candidate) has really
brought an interest into MSA. The
turnout really shows commitment
from the student body," Erickson
said. Most fears of fraudulent voting
have been quelled by ITD's ability to
identify the candidates each student
voted for, which was introduced this
year.
Last year, 71 fraudulent votes
were cast, postponing the declaration
of the results for more than two
weeks.
"Last year there were allegations

"There is no question that both of
them in different ways fit the critique of
the Truman scholarship to a tee. They
are both very knowledgeable about the
issues they are interested in," said
Crown, who is also Masters' academic
adviser.
"Peter is known for his work with
(Students Organizing for Labor and
Economic Equity). He is an activist,
and Michael is the president of Blood
Drive United and the chairman of
community service for Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly and is very active with
the Native American community of
the Pine Ridge, South Dakota, Indian
Reservation, which I think really
stands out," Van Der Voo said.
Romer-Friedman, who plans to
attend law school as well as public
policy or graduate school to study eco-
nomics, said he was impressed by the
competition during the interview
process in New York.
"I left the interview feeling confident
that I did my best in displaying my own
abilities and my vision for the nation"

that an individual had voted, and
arranged a program from his room to
cast votes for himself under others
names," Virnm Rezmierski, Chief
Information Officer Office of Policy
Development and Education Director
said. "An investigation showed the
votes were cast by an auto responder
from his computer."
This year, initial reports from the
Department of Public Safety alleged
there had been one account of voter
fraud. But spokeswoman for the
Chief Information Officer Wanda
Monroe said the votes were uninten-
tional.
"Someone reported he attempted
to vote, but he couldn't and was told
he had alrcady voted. It was reported
as possible fraud, but it was nonin-
tentional," Monroe said.
"Upon investigati on, it was dis-
covered that the student had left
himself logged on while he walked
away for a short period. Another
student, believing the computer was
available, cast her vote not knowing
she was voting as someone else,"
JTD officials said in a written state-
ment.

spokeswoman Diane Brown said an
investigation is still ongoing.

on campus social issues. "I'm ecstatic
to be recognized for my achievements
at the University especially the major
victones that my colleagues and I in
Student Organizing for Labor and
Economic Equality have collectively
attained in the past two years," he said.
Michigan Student Assembly ?re i-
dent Brain Elias was told about his
Fulbright award last night. Elias said
he was "excited nervous, really happy,
really sad and really nervous" about
the news that he received one of 12
Fulbright scholarships to the United
Kingdom for next year. The program
allows students to travel abroad to per-
form research for an academic year.
The inernationa award w as estab-
lished in 1946 by former Sen. J.
William Fulbright of Arkansas. Nearly
230,000 have received the award and
about 4,500 are awarded annually.
Elias will study in Belfast, Northern
Ireland and work towards a Masters cf
Art in Comparative Ethnic Conflict.
"Half of th e year will be spent
studying and working on the peace
process between the Protestants and
the Catholics and then I'll spend the
second half of the year comparing that
peace process to the mechanics used in
South Africa in the post-Apartheid
government," Elias said.
