"We're actually serving more fruits than we used to, and
we're actually putting more fresh vegetables in the recipes,"
Blackburn said. She had not seen the menu criteria document.
The document requires dining halls to serve two steamed
vegetables per meal at the vegetarian bar, but according to the
menu suggestions, "Vegetarian Bar items may be discontinued
in units where demand does not warrant the labor or expense
involved." The Dining Hall in East Quad Residence Hall is
instructed to serve more vegetarian and vegan food than the
other dining halls.
"We try to speak to profile differences in residence halls
like East Quad - where there's the great concentration of
vegans and vegetarians," said Dining Services Director Bill
Blackburn said providing for vegetarian and vegan students
is one of her priorities.
"I've looked at where we can boost the plant protein in the
menu so that we make sure we meet the nutritional needs of
vegans wherever they live," she said.
The document instructs the dining halls to serve at least one
vegetarian soup per day, but to offer soups that cost more than
$.15 per serving no more than twice a week "due to expense."
It suggests the dining halls submit recipe changes to reduce
the cost of soup.
"The soup cost reductions were suggested to us by our
director, Bill Durell," said Meyers. "He's responsible for meet-
ing our budget and correctly deduced that if we didn't gain
control of overall costs more effectively that we would not be
able to meet our required goals."
Dining halls are also instructed to buy apples and oranges
in lots of more than 100. In addition to bananas and grape-
fruit, it suggests buying other fruits like tangerines and grapes
only "when affordable." Consequently, tangerines, grapes and
other fruits are rarely offered in the dining halls.
"I would agree that the selection of fruit is often limited....
We've already made the decisi6n to feature fruit a little bit
more often for the remainder of the year providing quality is
good and price is 'reasonable,"' said Meyers.
Durrell said some inconsistency in fruit quality is
inevitable. "If any customer finds any item not up to his or her
standards, we would like to know," he said.
"I want people to be able to eat as much as they need ...
and also work with students to be sure they don't take more
food than they need," he added.

BAMN members who spoke asked partici-

will instead gather for a rally at Martin Luther

At that time, Simon was a member of the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee and
chaired the committee's Subcommittee on
African Affairs. He told the audience of being
horrified by the massacre that was beginning
in Rwanda at the time and conferring with the
ranking Republican on the subcommittee,
Sen. James Jeffords. He and Jeffords called
up the commander of about 500 United]
Nations troops in Rwanda who told the sena-
tors, "If you can get 5,000 to 8,000 troops
here soon, we can stop this." The senators
urged for American military support to pre-
vent the massacre.
Simon said the White House told him
"there just isn't a base of public support." It is
now believed that approximately 800,000
civilians were subsequently massacred - a
lesson, he said.
The former senator also touched on the
importance of federal campaign finance

bankrupt energy conglomerate and its use of
campaign donations to develop close ties with
During his lecture, Simon lamented that,
prior to the events of Sept. 11, he did not per-
ceive a great interest in international affairs
among Americans. He cited news organiza-
tions closing foreign bureaus and the fact that
only .5 percent of the federal budget goes to
foreign aid.
But Simon said he has seen some positive
signs regarding American interest in interna-
tional affairs since Sept. 11.
"I don't think there is any question there is
a greater interest in international affairs now,"
he said. "It is important in our national inter-
est that we continue that interest."
Rebecca Blank, dean of the Gerald R. Ford
School of Public Policy, agreed, explaining
that government is "a necessary force, and the
question is, 'How do you use it effectively?' I
do think September 11 did make somewhat of
a difference in that."

Before the informal question-and-answer
discussion, Dingell's analysis of Washington,
which included predictions of a larger deficit
after Enron, interested some audience mem-
bers as well.
"He definitely gave us a good sense of the
political backdrop he's facing," Rackham stu-
dent Jose Arredondo said.
The event was sponsored by the Ford
School of Public Policy Speaker Committee
and held at the Foster Library in Lorch Hal.

from Lewis Cass Technical High School who
accompanied the students to Ann Arbor.
"We came so we can get better chances to get

Reed, a Cass Tech High School student.
Reed said he also hopes activism will improve
the quality of high schools, including technology
and books.
Counter-protesters from the student group
Young Americans for Freedom also attended the
rally, bearing signs with messages like "Diversity
is more than skin deep."
YAF members stood in a line in the middle of
the Diag, quietly holding up their signs while a
crowd of affirmative action supporters shouted
angrily at them. At least two of the counter-pro-
testers' signs were ripped apart. From the steps of
the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library,, speakers
threw both insults and snowballs at them.
