}tons of crude oil, other petroleum products and
hazardous waste occur annually on Alaska's north
lope.
SNRE junior Brianne Haven, an organizer of
'Saturday's walk, said that the use of sub-ocean
pipelines makes the oil drilling especially tenu-
ous.
"There's a much higher chance of spills with
is kind of drilling," Haven said. "It's easy for
these pipelines to crack or burst with ice."
-Former President Dwight Eisenhower first set
aside Alaskan land for preservation in 1960 and
Congress expanded the Arctic Refuge to 19 mil-
ion acres in 1980 as part of the National
Wilderness Preservation System.
But the coastal plain currently under dispute
was left out of the expanded Arctic Refuge.
Two bills before Congress would give the 1.5
million acre coastal plain in Alaska permanent
rotection, the Morris K. Udall Wilderness Act in
c House and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
Wilderness Act in the Senate.
The coastal plain is home to a vast array of
,wildlife such as musk oxen, polar bears, wolver-

ines and snow geese.
Each spring, a 129,000-member herd of
Porcupine river caribou trek hundreds of miles
from Canada to give birth in the Alaskan coastal
plain. Newborn caribou have a higher chance of
surviving in this area because it is virtually preda-
tor-free and also has lush plant life and few mos-
quitoes.
In addition to raising awareness about the
threatened Alaskan wilderness, organizers of
Saturday's walk said they wanted to promote
Nichols Arboretum, the University's own wilder-
ness reserve area.
"We need to respect nature before it's all gone,"
Haven said.
LSA first-year student Alan Mardegian, a par-
ticipant in the walk, said he was concerned that the
world's wilderness could disappear.
"When I get older I want to have some place to
go by myself and be with nature" Mardegian
said.
Participants in the five kilometer walk, orga-
nized by the Michigan Student Assembly's
Environmental Issues Commission and EnAct,
raised more than $1,400. The proceeds will sup-
port the Alaska Wilderness League and Nichols
Arboretum.

CRASH
Continued from Page 1A
Martha's Vineyard in July.
EgyptAir Chair Mohammed Fahim Rayan was asked about
reports that the Federal Aviation Administration had warned
EgyptAir of a terrorist threat.
"We take all precautions and we have plenty of warnings
from everybody, including the FAA," he replied.
Armed security guards routinely fly on EgyptAir flights.
After the airline's passengers go through the normal airport
security check, they are again subjected to baggage search
just before they board the aircraft.
Jim Hall, chair of the National Transportation Safety
Board, said EgyptAir and Egyptian government officials
were heading to the United States to assist in the investiga-
tion.
Clinton, about to depart for Europe for Middle East peace
talks, said there was "no evidence ... at this time" of foul play
linked to the crash.
"I think it's better if people draw no conclusions until we
know something;' said Clinton, who called Egyptian woo
President Hosni Mubarak to offer condolences and U.S.
assistance. AP PHOTO

CONFERENCE
Continued from Page 1A
level," said co-Chair of MSA's
Women's Issues Commission Riley
Hoffman, an LSA senior.
SNRE junior and MSA Rep. Mona
Gupta said she agreed. "I think we were
able to re-evaluate the way MSA cur-
rently exists and functions," she said.
The assembly decided the best way
to improve diversity within MSA and
the campus is to increase communica-
tion with different student groups so
assembly members interact more with
these groups.
The conference also consisted of
four issue sessions. Representatives
from each school discussed and ana-
lyzed a specific issue, including cam-
pus safety, alcohol, universities' gov-
erning boards and university-city rela-
tions.
Chrisitna Stejskal, director of
Women's Issues of the United Council,
facilitated the issue session and said
she hoped to change the initial percep-
tions about Title IX.
"There seems to be a general under-
standing that Title IX deals with more
than just athletics, but it applied to all
services and all activities. I wanted to
expand their view of Title IX into cur-
riculum and coursework,"she said.
During the issue session regarding
the governing board and student rela-
tions, the representatives discussed the
current state of the relationship
between each university's student body
and their respective governing board
and possible improvements.
Michigan State University and the
University of Michigan were the only
ABTS members of the eight schools in
attendance without student representa-
tion on their governing boards.
But MSU has four non-voting stu-
dent liaisons who are invited to break-
fast prior to board meetings, an MSU
representative said. Ohio State
University's student regent is also a
non-voting position.
University of Michigan LSA senior
Abe Rafi said of the conference, "I
learned ways to empower students so
that they may represent themselves
instead of me representing them."

ELECTION
Continued from Page 1A
Mayor Ingrid Sheldon.
The mayor and two members from
each ward make up the council's mem-
bership. Members serve two-year terms
and one seat in each ward is up for elec-
tion each year.
Retiring councilmember Patricia
Vereen-Dixon (D-Ward I) is expected
to be replaced by Democratic candi-
date John Hieftje. Hieftje's only
opponent is Libertarian candidate
Charles Goodman, a Rackham stu-
dent.
For some, the possibility of a
Democrat super-majority is a concern.
"The best I can hope for is maintain-
ing the 7-4 division," Sheldon said. If
the division increases, it could be harm-
ful to city residents, she added.
Fourth Ward Republican candidate
Marcia Higgins - who is trying to
replace her husband, Patrick Putnam on
the council - echoed Sheldon's con-
cern.
"I think that would be detrimental,"
Higgins said. "That removes the veto
right."
Others feel the issue of a super-
majority inaccurately divides council
among party lines.
"Council votes unanimously on
about 90 percent of things," said coun-
cilmember Heidi Cowing Herrell (D-
Ward III). Herrell, who is running for
re-election, said there are often breach-
es of opinion within each party.
"Vetoes happen so seldom,"
Herrell said. "I really do see it as a
non-issue."
Fourth Ward Democratic candi-
date Lawrence Kestenbaum said he
feels councilmembers vote accord-
ing to their own experiences and
beliefs. Kestenbaum said gathering a

consensus among a party would be
difficult because of personal difter-
ences.
"It really underestimates the
integrity" of council members
Kestenbuam said. "They're really
not conformists."
While some councilmembers and
candidates said it is unfair to assume
candidates vote by party line, others
said politics can have an impact on
decisions.
"My perspective is it tends to be an
additional barrier," Sheldon said.
"There's always going to be a barrier in
philosophy or style."
Some council members said a big,
ger concern is the loss of minority
representatives on council. Kwan is
Asian-American and Vereen-Dixon
is black.
Herrell said these losses can be com-
bated by increasing minority represe-n
tation on city committees. Herrell said
all perspectives not represented p,
council still need to be heard.
Another concern of councilmembers
is the loss of the retiring councilmem
bers' skills.
Sheldon pointed to Kwan's business
background, Vereen-Dixon's expertise
in managing a low rent cooperative and
Putman's community service back-
ground as experiences that will be,
missed.
Councilmember Jean Carlberg (D-t
Ward III) said Dixon's retirement is a'
"serious loss" because of her business
background and noted Kwan as
"always very forthcoming."
Higgins said for her husband the
decision to retire was "difficult," but
she said their are benefits to changes oni
council.
"I think it's good to see new faces
because it keeps bringing a fresh per-
spective of the issue, she said.
