an also said because of the

change in shifts, Building Services is
able to offer University courses to its
custodial staff during the day. Norman
said computer courses are especially
valuable to custodians as they can now
access payroll and banking services by
computer.
Phillips said he is most upset by most
custodians' loss of a shift premium of
fifty cents for working the night shift,
which earns staff overtime pay. Shift
premiums rose by 20 cents the last time
a contract was renegotiated with the
custodians, in 2001.
But Phillips said he is suspicious
that Building Services was expecting
to face more budget cuts, and that they
raised the premium knowing that night
shifts would soon be cut.
The anonymous source said she
also expected the night shifts to be
cut. Budget cuts "saved them shift
premium," she said. Norman said
that this assessment was untrue.
"At the time of the contract we had
no idea what was going to be cut,"
he added.

ELECTIONS
Continued from page 1
among the first generation to take the gift
of voting," Soni said.
LSA sophomore Gopal Pai said he
attended the event because he feels that
South Asian students need to increase
their political involvement.
"The South Asian students make up
a significant percentage of the student
body, yet are not adequately represented
in student government organizations,"
Pai said.
But South Asians for Kerry member
Devesh Tiwari said the challenges fac-

ing South Asians are no different than the
challenges facing other American voters.
Tiwari said Americans in general per-
ceive the political system to be too cor-
rupt to warrant their participation, or they
feel their vote will not make a difference.
"I want to get the message out
that they can make a difference and
through the political process get
a man in office who exemplifies
South Asian values."
Janu Lakshmanan, co-chair of the
mixer, emphasized that IASA went out
of its way to provide a comfortable and
informal setting for South Asian students
to talk about politics with politically

active students on campus.
"(We were going for) a standing
reception where people were free to
mingle, discuss and not feel pres-
sured to vote for a certain candidate.
They were free to talk about issues
that they wanted to address," Lak-
shmanan said. "And even though
IASA is a nonpartisan organization,
we have representatives from differ-
ent parties in order to provide infor-
mation."
The Michigan Student Assembly's
Voice Your Vote Commission and
Students for Nader also participated
in the event.

Vice President, he said "most of Dick
Cheney's undisclosed hours at undis-
closed locations are spent at his Wyo-
ming ranch."
Pope said the administration does
not view clean air and water as the
common rights of all citizens, but as
commodities to be competed for in the
marketplace. He said maintenance of
clean air and water requires a "strong
and robust central government" that
conflicts with right-wing laissez-faire
ideology.
He said it was the position of the
administration that if clean air and
water were made universal rights to
all citizens, "people will be entitled to
clean air and water that they haven't
earned. And then what's the point of
being successful? What's the point of
being Dick Cheney?" he said.
