LSA-SG election garners high voter turnout

By Jeannie Baumann
Daily Staff Reporter
The same year the student government for the
College of Literature, Science and the Arts prohib-
ited candidates from wallpapering with campaign
materials in the building where most of its students
have class, it experienced one of its must fruitful
years for voter turnout.
About 2,000 people voted in last week's fall
elections for LSA-SG representatives. Election
Director Megan Hungerford, an LSA junior, attrib-
uted the high voter turnout to effective campaign-
ing as well as an increased number of candidates
from previous years.
She said 15 candidates competed for 10 LSA-
SG seats, while nine campaigned for the same

number of seats last year.
"Everyone was really pleased with the turnout,"
Hungerford said. "It was a significant improve-
ment from previous elections."
Blue Party candidates captured seven of the 10
spots, with independent candidates taking the final
three seats. The Friends Rebelling Against Tyranny
Party and the Defend Affirmative Action Party-
who ran candidates in last week's Michigan
Student Assembly election for representative seats
- did not have LSA-SG candidates.
Hungerford also noted the competition between
the candidates, as indicated by the vote total. "It
was a very close margin, and it came down to one
or two votes," she said.
Gwendolyn Arnold, Christopher Gerben, Joanna

Novak, Sarah Ray, Steven Sharpe, Rachel
Tronstein and Maximilian Tsui all won LSA-SG
representative seats under the Blue Party slate.
"I'm really glad that a lot of members from the
Blue Party won as we've been working really hard
all semester," Arnold, an LSA first-year student
said. "But I'm also glad that we have a number of
independent candidates because they cain bring
fresh ideas."
Independent candidates John Carter, Chip
Englander and Douglas Tietz captured the remain-
ing seats.
Tsui had an optimistic outlook for the upcoming
academic year. 'I'm looking forward to the
upcoming year and working with everybody who
got elected," he said.

Adopt-a-Turkey works to
curb 'fowl' exploitation

By Cara Chase
For the Daily
Nearly 30 turkeys from Farm
Sanctuary will take a place at
Thanksgiving dinner tables Thursday
- but they'll serve as the guests of
honor, not as the main course.
Organizers of the adopt-a-turkey pro-
gram hope some families will choose
vegetarian Thanksgiving meals if they
have the chance to interact personally
with turkeys.
Farm Sanctuary, a national organiza-
tion, nurses sick, injured or abandoned
farm animals at shelters in New York
and California.
Participants can either adopt two or
more turkeys to live in their home, or
adopt through a donation - including a
picture of the adopted turkey and
become a member of Farm Sanctuary.
In order to take a turkey into their
home, a family must meet specific
requirements like having a predator-
proof barn, income for proper feed and
being a vegetarian.
So far this year, 29 turkeys have been
transplanted to ntw homes. Since Farm
Sanctuary's establishment in 1986,
about 350 turkeys have been adopted by
families across the country. In
Manchester, Mich., Dorothy Davies
and Monte Jackson adopted four
turkeys. The couple was unavailable for
comment.
Adoptive families hold Thanksgiving
dinner in honor of their new pets. They

"We get to feed a turkey instead of
eating one.",
- Jenny White
Farm Sanctuary campaign assistant

get special treats such as pumpkin pie,
grapes, cranberries and popcorn,
instead of their daily diet of apples, let-
tuce and grains.
"We get to feed a turkey instead of
eating one," said Jenny White, a
campaign assistant at Farm
Sanctuary.
In response to the misconception that
turkeys are unintelligent, White said,
"people say that turkeys are dumb
because they want to distance them-
selves from the animals in order to eat
them."
The personality of a turkey is indi-
vidual, just like any other pet, White
said. Some are social -- they like to be
scratched or follow their owners
around. They also demonstrate curiosi-
ty and learn skills like scratching the
door to be let inside. Others are not
social and like to spend time solely with
other turkeys, she said.
More people choose to adopt a turkey
through the mail rather than bringing
one into their home. For a $15 donation
a family can pick out a turkey, whose
picture will be mailed to them.
Donations have saved only 1,500 turkeys
this year, down from 2,500 last year.

LSA sophomore Rebecca Whiting
said she probably wouldn't participate
in live-in turkey program.
"It'd be so chaotic having a big;
turkey living in your house,":
Whiting said. "Probably a little"
messy, too."
The Thanksgiving meal is the exact
same for those who have adopted a
turkey, only without the cooked fowl.
Vegetarians recommend a synthetic
turkey substitute, White said,
Tofuturkey, that comes complete with:
drumsticks and gravy.
But some, who call turkey the high-
light of the meal, are not quite willing
to give up the main course.
Whiting says, "I like turkey a lot, so;
I'd eat it. Its cool that they (save
turkeys), but I'd probably still eat it."
Many students said they cannot
imagine a big turkey running around
in their backyard. Many students',
response about physically adopting a
turkey was even less than enthusias
tic.
"I don't see myself as a turkey
kind of person. I like dogs too
much," Art and Design junior Colin
Fowler said.

Online resume boards,
job listings allow grads
to contact employers
By Jen Fish
Daily Staff Reporter -
Application after application after
application. With fall semester coming
to a close, many students graduating
this spring are beginning to scramble,
realizing that they have to stop thinking
about jobs and actually start looking for
them.
With a little help from the Internet,
'this sometimes painful process of
matching students with jobs might
become a little easier.
Today, Websites like monster-
board.com and jobtrak.com allow
students to post their resumes online
where prospective employers can
contact the student if they are inter-
ested. If students are uncomfortable
with posting personal information on
the Internet, these sites also provide
job search engines, where students
can search for a job in their respec-
tive fields and then apply the old
fashioned way.
Many of these sites have special
affiliations with universities. The
University's Career Planning &
Placement Office posts its job bulletin
through jobtrak.com.
Another site, jobs.con, has just
joined forces with College Directory
Publishing Inc. and aroundcampus.com
to link more students with more
employers.
In addition to general job search
sites, other sites are tailored to conduct
job searches for specific occupations.
Students in the space industries can go
to aerojobs.con and accounting stu-
dents can check out accountingprinci-

pals com for job placement and online
applying.
Terri Lamarco, assistant director
for employer relations at CP&P, urges
students "to use any resource that
they can, but be aware of what that
resource targets."
Some services may cater to profes-
sionals, not graduating students.
To counter this problem, CP&P has
adopted its own online resume service
called Resume Express.
This service differs from the oth-
ers because contact between stu-
dents and employers is student-initi-
ated.
That is, students post their resumes
online and then choose which com-
pany they wish to receive their
resume.
CP&P has always circulated resumes
for students but has added an online
format to facilitate the application
process for students.
Like many other students who
are graduating this spring, LSA
senior Becca Millrood is looking
for a job.
In addition to posting her resume on
monsterboard.com, she has also uti-
lized CP&P's Resume Express.
Her experience with Resume
Express, she said, has been extremely
successful, landing her around 10 dif-
ferent interviews.
"The problem with submitting
your resume to the monster is that
you are one of thousands of applica-
tions. With Resume Express, you
know that the employers are specifi-
cally looking for U of M students,"
she said.
For more information about Resume
Express, contact CP&P at 764-7460 or
access its Website at
