As well as early planning, the
affected offices have been able to
reschedule many events to alternate
The Ann Arbor Folk Festival has

atre, Bob Dylan will play at Crisler
Arena and the Vienna Philharmonic
will perform at the Detroit Opera
All of them have traditionally
performed at Hill Auditorium.
But many of the alternate venues
present problems that were not
encountered at Hill Auditorium. The
audience at places like the Detroit
Opera House will be generally farther
away from the stage and pay increased
ticket prices to account for the smaller
size of these other venues.
While the University's program
offices are making efforts to reduce
the severity of these inconvenienc-
es, a show scheduled in Detroit will
be more difficult to attend. Mafy
students, however, are willing to
overlook these hindrances.
"Most of them, I wouldn't have
gone to anyway," LSA junior Jenny
"But if it was someone I really
liked, it wouldn't make a differ-
ence," he added.
"As long as they still have the
opportunity for students to see
shows, then it's okay," LSA Senior
Nick Katsoulis said.
In spite of all the scheduling and
financial restraints, there is no
question that the $38.6 million ren-
ovation is necessary.
"We've been looking forward to
this for better than 10 years,"
Jeff Kuras, director of University
Productions, said improvements to
the building will include isle lights,
sprinklers, smoke detectors, eleva-
tors for handicapped patrons, sound
and light locks - sets of doors
which dampen sound and light from
the entrance way, a new lower
lobby, technology to dampen the
noise of the ventilation system,
vastly increased bathroom capacity,
new seating and a restoration of the
auditorium's original paint job.
"Right now, it's very austere. The
color will be sort of rich and satu-
rated," Kuras said.
The improvements will be worth
the wait, said Gilmartin. "This is a

He said winning the Supreme
Court appeal would -have secured a
small percentage of additional votes
for Raczkowski in the November
election, but because Raczkowski is
so far behind in the election polls,
the Court order will not impact the
"Not enough people know who
Raczkowski is or that his nickname is
Rocky," Ballenger said.
Raczkowski appealed to the
Supreme Court after two lower courts,

"If you become a Lansing insider,
you tend to forget what's in the best
interest of the people."
If the proposal passes, millions of
dollars would go to organizations
that can spend the money however
they want, Kelley said.
"There's no obligation for them to
disclose any of their expenditures.
They know that. This is a fraud, a
misrepresentation. They can take
this $300 million and they can
spend it on doorknobs, and there's
nothing you can do about it," he
The proposal would constitution-
ally mandate how the settlement is
spent, which Kelley said should be
the state legislature's job.
"This is the worst assault on con-
stitutional and representative gov-
ernment in the history of the state,"
he said. "As far as I'm concerned,
it's a robbery."
