which he said is part of human nature and can all too
easily lead to suspicion, contempt and hatred.
He addressed the topic both with regard to past prej-
udice against Jews and also in relation to Sept. 11.
"This new era requires every religion and every reli-
gious person to undertake an urgent new examination
of conscience," he said.
He also said it was important for Christians to do a
much fuller job of confronting the history of Christian
He added that Christians and Jews can take hope from
the fact that the Christian church has turned away from it.
English Prof. Ralph Williams said he read Carroll's
book and considers it "one of the most important
issues not only of our times but of the last two millen-
"I think the chief issue he wanted to address was what he
saw as the profound need for Christianity to rethink itself on
the issue of their relationship to Jews and to repent not only
as individuals but as an institutional community for its pro-
found wrongs," Williams said.

issues, such as child care and wages, were not dis-
cussed. Members said they would not forget about
those issues because it is important the new con-
tract meets the needs of every person in GEO.
"There are still groups out there that need our
help. We will stay out as long as we need to make
sure everyone gets a better contract," GEO member
and Rackham student Irfan Nooruddin said at the
closing rally, adding that the GEO will not back
down on the remaining issues. "Issues of justice
and principle can never be compromised."
During the walk-out supporters stood near build-
ing entrances in an attempt to speak with anybody
who entered them. Picketers said they understood
students' dilemmas about not attending class, but
not all excuses were convincing.
"We're getting the impression that some profes-
sors are giving quizzes just to spite the union,"
Rackham student Wojciech Beltkiewicz said. "A lot
of students have-been saying they have quizzes."
Kinesiology junior Dan Eldred said he attended

his classes in Angell Hall yesterday despite his per-
sonal feelings about crossing the picket line.
"I did feel a little guilty. I didn't make eye con-
tact with them when I passed them because I knew
that they would question me. I wanted to avoid
being bothered," he said.
Other students, including LSA sophomore Mar-
tina Graef, who entered Angell Hall from an
entrance connected to the Diag, said she did not run
into any picketers at all.
"There were students supporting the GEO out
there but there was really no picket line that I had to
cross," Graef said, adding that a picket line would
not have changed her decision to attend class. "I
would have crossed it. ... I know that there is a
strike, but if the professor is holding class, I'm still
responsible for the material."
Department of Public Safety Spokeswoman
Diane Brown said the strike ended without any
legal misfortunes.
"The picketers (were) cooperative and followed
the officers' requests without complaint. We simply
asked for voluntary compliance and did not have to
take any additional measures," she said.

needs funds it can find them.
"The work action is about getting
them to move the money from some-
where else to the pile of money for the
contract," Picard said. "Make the pile
bigger. Spend less on the President's
House." She said the threat of a strike
prompted the weekend's progress, after
months of what she said were mostly
fruitless negotiations. "Once they real-
ized that we would (walk out), then they
started giving us stuff," she said.
Agreement on hiring procedures
came with a commitment from the Uni-
versity that GSIs will not be hired based
on their financial needs. This would
guarantee that bottom-line budgeting,
which gives departments a flat amount
of money to hire all GSIs and may result
in preferential treatment for those with
lower tuition costs, will not be used in

hiring. GEO and the University also cre-
ated a definition of harassment and a
new, expedited procedure to address
harassed GSIs' grievances. In addition,
new contract language on affirmative
action in hiring establishes a committee
to oversee appointments, Picard said.
In the area of international GSI
testing, the University agreed
national origin may not be the sole
reason to test or train instructors.
Picard said this provision guarantees
that, if a department tests one appli-
cant's communication skills, it must
test those skills for all who apply.
The University also agreed to contract
language defining a graduate student.
These agreements are tentative until
being voted on by GEO on Sunday at
GEO's membership meeting. At this
meeting, members will either accept the
contract as it stands after this week's
negotiations or approve an indefinite
strike beginning March 19.

As she lost more weight, more people
were willing to be her friends, and when
she was 16, her skinniness was reward-
ed again - someone said she should
become a model. After a year and a half
of modeling full time and obsessing
about her weight, Dillon went home to
San Diego to find a new joy and free-
dom in herself and her body.
"I started being liberated from the
need to please others and fulfill others'
ideals and started living by my own,"
she said. "I'm me, this is who and what
I am." Dillon said she gained 50 pounds
and realized she was actually normal, as
opposed to "normal" according to the
standards of the fashion and entertain-
ment industry. She went to New York
and became a plus-size model, an occu-
pation she has held for six years.
"I made a conscious decision to live
my life without self-doubt and without
apologizing to anyone for who I am,"
she said. She added that she wants to
change the way women and beauty are
"The media just bamboozles
everybody everyday, by bombarding
us with images and sounds in order
to sell products," she said. "They
feed us with that anxiety so they
can sell us its antidote."
She said American culture lacks a
consistent healthy message of body
image and that there is hypocrisy as far
as the media sending double messages.
"In a magazine, they'll have an article
about me as a role model being myself,
turn the page, and there's an article
about how to lose 10 pounds before
tomorrow morning to fit into your prom
dress," she said. Dillon also said she
feels society is going to change and has
changed already in moving toward
diversity in its models, but it still has a
long way to go.
She said there needs to be a shift in
the collective consciousness of the con-
sumer and that consumers need to take
responsibility for their own actions and
"The individual needs to question
his or her own attachment to these
ideals, standards and images," she
Dillon added that she thinks once
people start thinking for themselves
it will lead to a healthier culture
with a more diverse representation
of humanity.
