Students who miss residence hall

night snack don't need cash in their
pockets to find a meal.

Durst, administrative manager for
This is in addition to the usual
uses for Entree Plus, which include
paying for laundry and copy services
in the residence halls, eating in
University dining halls and buying
from campus vending machines.
"It's a response that offers value
and extends meal options to resi-
dents and other students on cam-
pus," Durst said.
Entree Plus points represent dol-
lars in a student's M-card account.
Students can purchase points in the
M-card Office, located in the
Student Activities Building.
Students who select reduced meals
plans also get Entree Plus points to
supplement for dining meals.
Under the new Entree Plus plan, the
University offers a separate meal plan
that consists only of Entree Plus points
for students who do not want to eat in
the dining halls.
Also, the Flex 13 plan gives stu-
dents 13 meals per week in the din-
ing halls and 150 Entree Plus points
to use at campus eateries. But Entree
Plus points do not take the place of
meal credits, except in residence
hall snack bars like the South Quad
Downunder or the Mary Markley
Underground, where students can
use their meal credit toward missed
dining hall meals.
Many students said they are pleased
with the reintroduction of Entree Plus
"If you are out of cash at least you
have a way of still getting lunch.
It's great," said SNRE junior
Monique Dugars, adding that she

Entree Plus points are available or
do not use them because they do not

"I don't really want them. I live off

The Entree Plus program will be
limited to food operations, said John

A Washtenaw County Circuit Court
judge on Friday threw out felony
charges against eight people who were
accused of rioting during an anti-Ku
Klux Klan rally at Ann Arbor City Hall
in May 1998.
The accusations resulted from an
incident during the rally in which some
demonstrators threw stones on the
north side of City Hall that afternoon,
said Defense Attorney George
Washington. "They don't have the right
people," Washington said.
Washtenaw County Prosecutor Joe
Burke was unavailable for comment.
Judge Donald Shelton, who presided
over the case, dropped the felony-riot
charges against the demonstrators, one
of whom is Rackham student Jessica
"It's great not to be a suspected
felon," Curtin said about having the
felony charge dropped Friday.
Thomas Doxy, Song Wook Kim,
Jonathan Hughes, Phill Vandervoordo,
Zachary Thomas, Adam Lerman,
Michael Fuqua also were absolved of,
the felony charges.
Curtin, however, still has a mivde&
meanor charge against her for allegedly
taking down a fence separating the Klu
Klux Klan rally from the Anti-Klu Klux,
Klan demonstrators, but Washington
expects a judge to throw it out.
Doxy has a charge of aggravated'
assault with a dangerous weapon pend-
ing for allegedly throwing a rock that.

is scheduled for Oct. 11.
Assault charges also remain against,
Phill Carol and Renne Bunk. Both are
accused of hitting the fist of a peace-
keeper, whose hand was on the fence;
Washington said. Carol's trial is sched-
uled for November, while Bunk's is nod
scheduled yet. He added that both wZ
plead not guilty.
Robin Alvarez faces a separate trial;
scheduled on Oct. 25, for allegedly"
inciting a riot.

Nearly 20 community service orga-
nizations are gearing up to ServeltUp
on the Diag today.
Sponsored by the Michigan Student
Assembly's Community Service
Commission, ServeltUp will be
recruiting new members from noon to
Heading up the first ServeltUp are
CSC members and LSA juniors Brady
West and James Devaney.
"We just want to put the focus on
community service," West said, adding
that many students looking for commu-
nity service opportunities may become
overwhelmed at Festifall.
Circle K, Dance Marathon and Project
Serve are among the organizations set-
ting up shop near the Diag today.
Stephanie Hartshorn, vice president
of Circle K, said ServeltUp's focus on
community service offers Circle K a
better chance than Thursday's Festifall
to reach out to students willing to
devote their free time to community
"It seems this might lead to more
members,.. We might get more people
who are committed to service," she said.

MSA CSC Chair Mike Masters said
he hopes, through ServeltUp, more
organizations will apply to the CSC for
funding for community service activi-
CSC has funds totaling about
$74,000 per academic year for commu-
nity service group fundine. The CSC
collects $1 per student per semester, as
a part of the MSA charge itemized on
students' tuition bills.
Masters said that organizations don't
have to be created for community ser-
vice to apply for funding.
Organizations that hold community ser-
vice activities are eligible for CSC
funds. But he added that CSC does not
fund philanthropic activities.
ServeltUp is another way, Masters
said, for the CSC to get to know the
organizations it funds. Its members try
to work hand-in-hand with its student
groups to organize projects.
"We don't just hand out money, we
want to work with the groups to make
sure they get a good community service
project with the students' money,"
