Halloween costumes offensive to some

By Carmen Johnson
Daily Staff Reporter
Wild and crazy costumes were the norm
this weekend, as student dressed up as every-
thing from Saturday Night Live's ambiguously
gay duo to Nintendo's Mario and Luigi.
"It's an excuse to be a slut and not be
coined as a slut," LSA junior Shawn
Lafkowitz said.
But in an effort to be shocking and creative,
costumes may have been offensive to other
"I saw someone dressed up as Jeffery Dah-

mer's refrigerator. He had magazine cut-outs
of arms and legs inside the fridge. People
thought it was funny. But it could be consid-
ered offensive," Lafkowitz said.
Jen Fina dressed up as a cowboy and partied
with a student vagina. "I kinda looked at it
and laughed although it could have offended
some people. We all know what it looks like,
and you could definitely tell what he was sup-
posed to be. People were shouting out things,"
Fina said.
LSA senior Libby Walker went out on Hal-
loween night and saw her share of short skirts
and also some costumes that surprised her.

"This kid was a cowboy with a blow up doll
attached to his hips. So it was like he was rid-
ing the doll. He got some strange looks from
girls," Walker said.
Girls often feel pressure to dress sexy on
Halloween, said Nursing freshman Jamie Ros-
man, who went to a party on Elm Street.
"In our sorority some of us wanted to be
something different like doctors in scrubs, but
other girls didn't think it was sexy enough,"
Rosman said. "Since every other girl is gonna
be sexy there is pressure to be sexy too. Wear-
ing scrubs isn't too attractive."
Many girls dressed up as devils, angels or

cats, said Duncan Dotterrer, a School of Nat-
ural Resource sophomore.
"But I saw a girl in a firefighting costume
so low cut, it was ridiculous. Her boobs were
just hanging out," Dotterrer said.
"My friend took a picture of this girl wear-
ing a see-thru shirt, then she took it off and
was just showing people her nipple ring,"
Stephanie Persin, an LSA freshman said. "I
think she was dressed in a toga."
Laftkowitz, who dressed up as gothic, said
Halloween is a night to cut loose. "That night
is a bend in the monotonous student life,"
Laftkowitz said.

Libertarian candidates
emphasize need for less.
governmental control

By Jeremy Berkowitz
Daily Staff Reporter
Gregory Stempfle, the Libertarian Party candi-
date for the U.S. Congressional 15th district, said
he supports returning the control of most pro-
grams to the states.
"I don't think the federal government should be
involved in charity," Stempfle said. "That should
be up to the states."
Stempfle, a resident
of Dearborn Heights, is
one of several candi-
dates running tomorrow
on the Libertarian Party
ticket. One of them,
Rockford resident
William Hall, is vyingr
for a seat on the Univer- MyCHIG AN
sity Board of Regents. ICH1101H
Stempfle said he does ELECTIO
not support the recent
Congressional resolu-
tion giving President
Bush the right to take
action against Iraq. He said he does not like the
idea of sending soldiers across the world to take
control of a government.
"It's not our responsibility to maintain order
over there," Stempfle said.
LSA junior Daniel Sheill, chairman of the Uni-
versity's Libertarian Party chapter said in general,
Libertarians do not believe in taking military
action to overthrow other governments.
"We believe in wars that are of self-defense,"
Sheill said. "We don't believe in going off into
adventurous war."
He added the party believes in creating world

"With less government and lower taxes, you
could keep more of what you earn. It would be
easier to start new businesses, build new
homes, and fuel stronger economic growth,"
the Libertarian Party website says. "All over
the world, governments are busy selling air-
lines, power plants, housing and factories to
private owners. Where inefficient government
bureaucrats lost money and squandered tax
dollars, hard-working private owners now make
profits and create new jobs."
Sheill said the Libertarians support school
vouchers because public education in America is

Candidates visit
places of worship
as election nears

meo= 'l 11


BRIGHTON (AP) - As the race for
governor entered its final 48 hours yes-
terday, Republican Dick Posthumus and
Democrat Jennifer Granholm took their
campaign messages to thousands of
southeast Michigan churchgoers.
Posthumus told several hundred
worshippers at Brighton Wesleyan
Church that he is the only candidate
who will govern according to his anti-
abortion beliefs.
"We're here because we're asking for
your prayers. Not necessarily prayers for
victory, but prayers for wisdom and
prayers for strength in the days ahead,"
he said, standing alongside GOP secre-
tary of state candidate Terri Lynn Land.
At the end of his brief speech, he held
up his own well-worn Bible.
"No matter what happens in the next
couple of days, this will be my guide
throughout my life," he said, to a rousing
At Detroit's Greater Grace Temple of
Apostolic Faith, Granholm told a con-
gregation of about 2,000 that Posthumus
has been running "a campaign of divi-
sion." Republican Party ads have said
she is promising favors to Detroit in
exchange for votes.
"Somebody is making the choice to
divide city from suburb, east from west.
And if that's how they choose to cam-
paign, then perhaps that's how they'll
govern," she said. "We are one Michigan

... We all rise or fall together."
Granholm planned to visit at least
nine churches in the Detroit area yester-
day. Posthumus visited two churches in
Brighton before heading to a snowmo-
bile show in Novi. Later in the evening
he planned to visit suburban Detroit
bowling alleys.
The candidates were preaching to the
choirs at their respective churches. Con-
gregants applauded heartily for
Granholm in Detroit and surrounded
Posthumus for prayers and handshakes
in Brighton.
At Greater Grace Temple, 68-year-old
James Moore of Waterford said he'll be
voting for Granholm.
"We really need a change and I think
she'd be a good candidate. She's sincere,
and we don't need the separation of the
races,"he said.
Pat McIntosh, 53, of Detroit, likes
Granholm because she's a woman. She
added that Posthumus is "prejudiced
toward the city of Detroit."
"She's just going to work for all of the
state, not just one specific city," she said.
After a service at Cornerstone
Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 74-
year old George Zander told Posthu-
mus he already voted for him by
absentee ballot.
"He's a Christian and I have trust in
him," said Zander, a German immigrant.
"There's something about this man."
