validated its petition, they said it was unlikely the
state Supreme Court will reverse that decision.
"We're confident that the language of our peti-
tion is legal," Zarko said.
BAMN filed the appeal to the Supreme Court
in late July, and the court could decide to hear the
case anytime from the end of this month to Janu-
ary, officials at the court's clerk office said.
BAMN attorney George Washington said he
could not predict what the court will do and that
the process often takes longer. So MCRI may not
know about the status of its petitions until they
have sent them in.
This court case could be the opposition's
best chance to stop the initiative before it gets
"In our view, it's going to be absolutely essen-
tial to prevent the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative
from deceiving the people of Michigan," BAMN
national spokeswoman Shanta Driver said. "But it's
a very conservative Supreme Court at this point."
Even if MCRI overcomes that legal hurdle,
BAMN plans to challenge the validity of the
group's signatures in court, a practice common
with contentious ballot initiatives.
"This is round one of the court fight, but it is by
no means the last round," Driver said. "We'll do
whatever is necessary" to stop the initiative.
Although MCRI officials continually assert that
the campaign is moving along at a healthy pace,
Driver said it is still faltering.
"I think they've got some problems. I think it's
stalling too in a number of places," she said, citing
growing opposition at the University's Flint and
Dearborn campuses, Central Michigan University
and Wayne State University. "There's a real posi-
tive response to this" opposition effort, she said.
But others have been less sanguine about the
chance of toppling the initiative before it gets on
"It's unfortunate the people of Michigan
are just dupes in Ward Connerly's scheme,"
said David Waymire, spokesman for the oppo-
sition group Citizens for a United Michigan, a
coalition of business, religious and advocacy
groups interests. Connerly, a *Jniversity of
California regent, is a steadfast opponent of
racial preferences and a chief promoter and
fundraiser for MCRI.
"We know that they've been buying signatures
by misleading the public," Waymire added, refer-
ring to MCRI paying its petitioners to collect sig-
natures. Paid petitioners are typically rewarded
from 75 cents to $1.25 per signature.
Critics say MCRI's timing will lower minor-
ity enrollment in college across the state. Driver
expressed concern that the campaign, perceived
by some to be an overt attack on affirmative
action, could scare away minority applicants
seeking to apply to the University. This academic
year, enrollment of black students at the Univer-
sity decreased by about 15 percent, to its lowest
level in six years.
When MCRI started its campaign earlier this
year in January, the deadline for applying had
almost passed. But this year, it has been campaign-
ing while many high school students are consider-
ing applying to the University.
"It's like a big unwelcome sign," Driver said.
The University is still optimistic that minority
enrollment will increase despite the timing of the
"I hope and expect that prospective students will
be motivated to apply to the University of Michigan
because of the outstanding educational opportuni-
ties available to them here, and that they will not be
discouraged by a politically motivated campaign,"
University spokeswoman Julie Peterson said.

the scores may be a good way of measuring a
Jolene Schaefer, a freshman in the school
of nursing has memories of taking the SAT
still fresh in her mind. She realizes the
important role that technology plays in her
field of nursing, but she said she does not
think that the ITCL Assessment should be
an indication of potential success. "I think
you can be a good nurse without being tech-
nologically savvy," she said.

for Student Affairs E. Royster Harper said.
The Hill Dining Hall is part of the Resi-
dential Life Initiatives, a broad effort led by
University President Mary Sue Coleman to
renew and improve housing conditions. Other
RLI plans include the building of a new resi-
dence hall that will replace the Frieze Build-
ing and include suite-style rooms.
University Housing conducted a survey of
2,400 students and combined that data with
the results of nearly a dozen focus groups and
a study of 93 retail food outlets and 11 dining
service operations by other universities.
Bursley and East Quad residence halls'
dining facilities will also be renovated.

in Ohio alcohol laws. "We want them to come in
and have a good time," he said.
Fair said the University has been spread-
ing the word in a number of ways. Vice Pres-
ident for Student Affairs E. Royster Harper
sent an e-mail to all student leaders and an
e-mail was sent by the athletic department
to all Michigan fans holding tickets for
tomorrow's game, informing them about
Ohio's laws. Posters were placed in the resi-
dence halls and the Greek community was
informed. The University also notified the
Alumni Association and posted information
on the Division of Student Affairs website,
