purpose of education for the University commu-
nity, representatives made many amendments to
the resolution.
During a discussion of an amendment by LSA
Rep. Shari Katz, Ann Arbor resident and Pales-
tinian supporter Blaine Gleman burst out in a
tirade against Katz, causing him to be forcibly
removed.
"You goddamn Nazis - don't you speak for me,"
Gleman yelled. "I am as much as a Jew as you are."
After multiple amendments, Rackham Rep.
Jessica Curtin tried to withdrawal the resolution

she originally proposed.
"It has been completely wrecked from which
it was originally intended," Curtin said.
Another important vote that took place last
night was the amendment to the budget alloca-
tion for the Ann Arbor Tenants Union.
The vote was tabled from last week with the
purpose of finding out if the School of Social
Work would agree to its role in the amendment.
Some Social Work students would be placed at
the AATU office to do required community ser-
vice fieldwork -with each student saving the
AATU $5,120. This practice would start next
semester as a way to stop the past practice of
MSA being the AATU's primary source of fund-

both wear "lucky" items to their
exams. "I wear my lucky necklace
that I wear whenever I am nervous
about something," Hill said.
Johnson, on the other hand, dons
her lucky rainbow socks for her
exams.
Some students said that eating habits
are also important when studying for
exams. "Before I start studying, I drink
a Pepsi and eat two little packs of Smar-
ties,' RC freshman Katie Corbett said.

What drives students to these
bizarre methods of preparation?
The answer is stress. While supersti-
tious rituals may help some students in
their study habits, University faculty
offered more concrete methods to aid
students in stress-management.
First and foremost, students need
to look out for their physical and
mental health while studying. There
are key symptoms that may be an
indication of stress, said Robert
Winfield, interim director for Uni-
versity Health Services.
Insomnia, excessive sweating,
nausea, headaches, fatigue, mood
swings, tension, irritability, loss of
concentration and changes in eating
and sleeping habits are some of the
most common symptoms of an over-

stressed individual.
"Managing stress is mu

The amendment, which past 31-1, was essential to
the fate of the AATU since the union would have to
dissolve without funds from MSA.
"I feel like they did the right thing for the stu-
dent body," AATU Executive Director Amy Kul-
lenburg said.
Also passed last night were the "Resolution on
the Regents to Maintain Support for the Univer-
sity's Legal Defense of Affirmative Action" and
"Alert to Student Voters: The Threat to Affirma-
tive Action at U of M in the November 7 Elec-
