port of the United Way campaign," he said.
The University donates funds to the Washtenaw
County United Way, which supports the Boy Scouts
of America, an organization that does not allow
homosexual scout leaders.
Garcia addressed this and other discriminations
facing homosexuals in today's society. "Until I
can hold the hand of a young person and it not be
assumed that I am anything more than a friend
and a role model, I will not be satisfied," he said.
LSA senior Jennifer Gallinat said she skipped biol-
ogy class to attend the event and show her support.
"This is worth skipping a lot of things for because
gay rights are not special rights, they're human
rights," Gallinat said. "If one group of people can
lose their freedom and their right to life then it's only
a short step before all of us lose our freedom and
right to life."
She added that it was important "to show the rest
of the world that we will not be silent and that we are
here among you."
"Every single day of the year is heterosexual visi-
bility," she said.
Defend Affirmative Action Party representative
Agnes Aleobua, who also spoke at the event, said
despite potential controversy, it is essential for mem-
bers of the LGBT community to be strong in their
beliefs and opinions.
"History has taught us that in order to make
change in society we have to stand up and fight....
There can be no successful movement in our society
that is not prepared to stand up against the oppres-
sion," Aleobua said.
She emphasized the connection between sex-
ism, racism and homophobia and asked that oth-
ers "demand real social equality in all aspects of
She also urged those attending the rally to "send a
message to the University community - we're going
to be out, we're going to be loud and we're going to
Following the rally on the Diag, 25 students
protested outside the Fleming Administration
Building to show their disfavor with the Universi-
ty's continued involvement with the Washtenaw
County United Way and to get the University Board
of Regents' attention, LSA senior Pierce Beckham
After finding out the regents were not in the build-
ing, five protesters went up to the president's office
where they engaged in an hour-long discussion with
interim President B. Joseph White.
Beckham said they discussed issues such as cam-
pus safety for LGBT students, the inability of the
Office of LGBT affairs to function properly and sup-
port students due to funding issues and the Universi-
ty's involvement with the United Way. 4
"President White was receptive to our com-
ments," Beckham said.
"He seemed to understand the various dynamics
of the issue and I feel that he's working on it to the
best of his ability. My own personal feeling is that if
he had his way, change would come relatively
Beckham said he considered the day to be success.
"I think we accomplished more than the goals we set
out for the day," he said.

admires those who have strong views
on the subject of abortion but do not
feel it is their place to impose their
view on others.
"Having lived through what I lived
through I would never force that deci-
sion on somebody else," she said.
Among the hot-button issues that
Rivers cited are legislation classify-
ing unborn fetuses as independent
victims of crime, the Bush adminis-
tration's prohibiting funding to
agencies operating in foreign coun-
tries that provide abortions or coun-
sel pregnant women on the issue of
having an abortion, legislation pro-
hibiting funding of abortions for
women in prison and overturning
current law that prohibits military
personnel and their dependents from
obtaining privately funded abortions
Rivers and Dingell only voted dif-
ferently on the subject of classifying
unborn fetuses as victims of crime.
Dingell voted to classify the fetuses
as such, Rivers did not.
Clair Morrissey, LSA sophomore
and executive board member of Stu-
dents for Choice, said although the
group will not likely endorse either
Dingell or Rivers until it is clear that
they will be running against each
other, Students for Choice clearly

In a written statement, Joseph A.
Califano Jr., former U.S. secretary of
health, education and welfare and
president of CASA said more educa-

"The message of this study is
loud and clear: To be effective, sex
education - in all its forms -
must discuss the connection
between sexual activity and alcohol
and drug abuse."
Places such as the Sexual Assault
and Prevention Awareness Center
and Planned Parenthood provide
information about sex and its rela-
tion to alcohol and drugs.
Drew Altman, president of the
Kaiser Family Foundation said in a
written statement, "Many teens as
well as young adults are mixing sex
with alcohol and drugs. ... These
are sensitive issues that many young
people don't like to talk about, so
these data likely underestimate the

excuses for not being protected in
sex," said LSA freshman Annabelle

excuse," she added.

the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban
Planning, the Ford School of Public Policy and
the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Pro-
The team worked together with the SSAA and
the DDA to find ways to improve the historical
State Street area and to attract more business.
"It was a very good process - it involved a

"I think it's annoying," said Janelle Sterling, a
shift manager at Einstein's Bagels on South State
Street. "It's kind of unfortunate that it has to
happen on the busiest roads in Ann Arbor at the
worst possible time."
But she noted that the renovations would most
likely not have a negative economic impact on
Einstein's, because most of their customers are
students who walk to the store.

shop, said that while,"in the short term it will be

In order to alleviate problems for businesses,
the construction will concentrate on a small area
at any given time, and will cease during large
shopping dates such as Football Saturdays and
the Ann Arbor Art Fair.
Many students thought the renovations were a
nice idea, particularly because South State Street
is one of the few entertainment areas available to
students on campus.
LSA senior Alicia Johnson said she likes atmos-
phere of South State Street, but added that driving
in the area can often be difficult. "One thing they
need to have is parking in the area," Johnson said.
There are no plans for such sought-after park-
ing; the number of spaces in the area will remain
the same after construction.

But Economics GSI Justin Garosi

teaching through experience. "You learn

Respondents said the German and
communications departments provided
consistent GSI standards. Arnold said
the success of these departments was
partly due to the smaller number of GSI-
taught sections offered.
