my hcm from the living wage or ask
f6? a three-year implementation plan.
The proposal also states that the
Wage must rise every year with the
poverty level, a projected rise of 2.6
percent per year
"There will be a yearly increase if
ges raise according to the federal
nition of poverty," Carlberg said.
Joseph Upton (R-Ward II), who
voted against the proposal, said it
may not be a solution to the city's
poverty problems.
"The local government is not an
effective government body to develop
puacroeconomic policy," Upton soid.
"If we are trying to address poverty,
this may not be an effective tool."
Upton said that increased expendi-
es for employers, especially small
sinesses, may have a hard time
meeting their payroll, leading to cut-

The new ordinance
requires a $8.70
pay for workers
receiving health
insurance or
$10.20 for others.
"Small businesses won't be able to
contend with the increased expendi-
tures," Upton said. "It may harm the
city's competition for contracts."
The proposal may also put added
constraints on the budget that the city
is trying to cut, Upton said.
"It's going to run counter to our
efforts to cut the budget," Upton said.
"We may have a greater problem
down the road - we don't know what
the economy will be in three years."
Larry Purdy, who spoke against the

living wage at last night's meeting
said the proposal would be ineffective
at its goals.
"All we have to do is mandate the
living wage and everyone in need is
out of poverty. Employers make more
by having productivity increase right
along with happiness - the only
thing missing is the reindeer," Purdy
said sarcastically.
He added that he fears increased
expenditures will result in higher
taxes for members of the community.
Charles Grose, a member of the
Washtenaw Coalition for a Living
Wage, said that the city's workers
should be making enough to support
"We are simply using tax money to
pay people enough to live," he said.
To become law, the proposal needs
to pass through a second reading in

happy Presidents Day," Horning said.
Bollinger, who has served as presi-
dent since 1996, has repeatedly
refused to comment on Harvard's
search process other than to say he
was "flattered" but still happy at his
position in Ann Arbor.
When asked about his candidacy
for the Harvard position at last
Thursday's University of Michigan
Board of Regents meeting, Bollinger
said, "I think I'd like to stick with
what I've said before on this."
Harvard spokesman Joe Wrinn
said he was unaware .of last week-
end's meeting between Bollinger and

the search committee until reading
the Crimson's report yesterday.
Because Harvard is a private
institution, presidential searches are
not required to be public. Wrinn
said he is not kept up-to-date about
developments in the selection
"Frankly, there wouldn't be any
need for me to know until their work
is all done," he said.
The university has no official com-
ment on when the process is expected
to be complete, Wrinn said.
"We're still hoping it would be by
the end of the academic year," he

the School of Information, noted
that students' past records served
an equally important role.
"We spent a lot of time studying r
students' records - both what they'
studied and what problems they
were encountering," Cohen said.
The concentration, which startqeldi
at the University in the 1970s and-
includes coursework in psychology,
sociology, political science and
economics, was ranked as the sixth
most popular undergraduate con-
centration available at the Universi-
ty last October.
As in the former concentration,
the proposed program will ground-
ed in sociology, psychology and
economics, and will include
coursework in "organization and
the individual" and "organization-
and society."
The most significant departtire
from the older curriculum will be-a
field research requirement for first-
term seniors.
Concentrators will be divided
into teams, and will work with part-
ner organizations in such areas as
business, community service, infor-
mation technology and education:.
In addition, Price said he looks
forward to organizational studies
concentrators having an academic.
"It's going to be more than just a.
paper program," Price said, "ItP

Curriculum Committee and LSA
College Executive Committee, and
will be put before the Presidents'

sities for final review in April.

because of its educational beqefits.
But Duggan also ruled that the "grid" system of
adtnissions used from 1995-1998 was unconstitutional.
Of a higher court were to rule differently on the legality
of the grid system, there would be no need to hold a
damages phase. t
The papers ask the Circuit court to decide whether
educational diversity is a dbmpelling state interest suffi-
cient to justify race-based discrimination in admissions
and if so whether the University's admissions policy is
narrowly tailored to advance that interest.
If the 6th Circuit Court accepts the case, Kolbo said,
the parties in the case will have to submit briefs for their
sides, and oral arguments could be held as early as next

Assembly members against changing the
rule to comply with University Housing were
concerned because Housing officials have not
yet stated that they will allow candidates to
stay until 10 p.m.
"We can't assume they won't make it 8
p.m.," said LSA Rep. Erika Dowdell. "We
shot this down last time for a reason."
Engineering freshman Mark Hutchinson
was the sole Markley resident to speak out
against enforcing limits on candidates.
"No one solicited my room before, and I
wouldn't mind if they did," Hutchinson said.
He added that he attended the meeting

urged assembly members to amend the

Also passed at last night's meeting was a
resolution of solidarity pertaining to racism
against Asian Pacific American students at

the University of California at Davis.
"This has nothing to do with Michigan stu-
dents whatsoever," said Kinesiology Rep. T.J.
Wharry. "What I see here are frat fights, and
we don't stop frat fights here."
Other assembly members were opposed
because of the lack of information.
"If you're going to make a decision for yes,
you had better know that these things really
happened at that these people are really
