- you get out of it what you put in to it."
The creation of the Golden Apple Award was
inspired by the teachings of Rabbi Eliezer ben Hur-
kanos, who taught 1,900 years ago. In his work, he
expressed the importance of getting your life in order
one day before you die.
The Golden Apple Award honors teachers who

"We do not know what actions are considered lob-
bying," Beckham said, citing a lack of precedent.
Hwang said CSJ interpreted tax law too strictly and
that it relied on documents that showed Student PIR-
GIM's former University chapter lobbied, but that the
new organization would follow tax code and promise
not to lobby at all.
"Just because we've lobbied in the past doesn't mean
we're going to lobby in the future," Hwang said.
Beckham ordered MSA to complete an internal
audit to determine whether MSA is currently in viola-
tion of the law that only allows 5 percent of the budget
to be used for groups who lobby. Previously, records
were not kept on that matter.
"It is purely possible that MSA is already in viola-
tion," Beckham said.
Another set of CSJ's concerns deals with the
way in which Student PIRGIM would be funded.
The group requested funding through MSA's dis-
cretionary fund, which does not have guidelines
that would ensure the assembly's compliance with
Southworth v. University of Wisconsin, in which
teach each lecture as if it were their last, Ray-
vin said. At the Golden Apple Awards ceremony,
Rubadeau will be able to perform his ideal final
The "last lecture" gives teachers freedom to venture
outside their curriculum and address students directly,
Students can hear Rubadeau give his 'last lecture"
on April 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
ater in the Michigan League.
the Supreme Court ruled that mandatory student
fees could be used to fund speech which some
parts of the campus community finds objection-
able, but that a student government needs to have a
policy prohibiting viewpoint discrimination.
CSJ prohibited MSA from funding any organi-
zations through the discretionary fund until guide-
lines are implemented. Beckham empowered the
Budget Priority Committee and the Community
Service Commission to allocate funds requested
from the discretionary budget until such guidelines
have been approved by the CSJ.
Among other specifications, Beckham said the
guidelines should include details on an application
process, an appeal process and should incorporate
input gathered from the student body at large.
Beckham said Students for PIRGIM has 10 days to
appeal the ruling to CSJ.
"We're going to appeal and we're going to win our
appeal," Hwang said, adding that Students for PIR-
GIM has not yet determined its definite grounds for
appeal. "Basically our position is that CSJ got every-

"(The current system) served the Uni-
versity well when it was established, but
many things have changed since then,"
Reid said. "The system was only able to
accommodate so much change, and pres-
ently it doesn't encompass the current
work world and the multitude of jobs that
have developed over the last 30 years."
Reid said that the new system is
designed to be more intuitive to current as
well as potential employees. Salary ranges
currently tend to be very broad, but once
the system is implemented, these ranges
will be narrower. Consequently, Reid said,
a potential employee reading a job descrip-
tion would be able to see a more meaning-
ful range of pay for a particular job.
Reid said one of the most visible ways
staff members will recognize the switch
is through the redesign of the University's
JOBS website, which will reflect the new
In addition, the new system will allow
the University to obtain more complete
information about where its jobs stand in
relation to the labor market. This informa-
tion will be used to track salary and growth
trends of particular careers, said Timothy
Wood, senior director of HRAA, who has
been greatly involved in the project.
"In all of our human resource pro-
grams, one of the main goals is to support
the recruitment and retention objective of
the University," Wood said. "Another is
to provide a clear sense of career path for
Wood said that many current job titles
don't correspond closely to the domi-
nant terminology used in the general job
He said 80 percent of the jobs at the Uni-
versity already have job titles that exist in the
labor marked but not at the school. A large
portion of these jobs fall within the health
system, because those positions are simi-
lar across employers, making the mapping
process easier. Wood said the new system
would also create titles for the remaining 20
percent, which corresponds to jobs that are
not common in the market.
The past three years of the reclassifica-
tion process has included researching other
institutions and creating focus groups on
campus and involves representatives from
all units of the University.
But for Peter Schermerhorn, a research
secretary in the College of Literature, Sci-
ence and the Arts and organizer of the
Union of Professional Office Workers, the
new classification system raises concerns
for the office workers attempting to form
U-POWER, a union to represent office and
clerical workers at the University. Though
he made it clear his opinion was not nec-
essarily that of the entire organizing com-
mittee, Schermerhorn said he fears the new
system will hinder U-POWER's ability to
be eligible to hold an election on whether it
can become a union.

ment that the state makes to Amtrak," he
said, citing the 100 Amtrak jobs within the
state, with a net return of about $2 mil-
Though Kohrman couldn't comment
on the future of Amtrak state funding if
Bush's proposal goes through, he said it
would require further examination.
"The state budget is very tight," he
The students wrote letters to Uni-
versity President Mary Sue Coleman,
Michigan and Illinois senators and the
"We want our representatives to keep
the student perspective in mind," Hasia-
University spokeswoman Julie Peterson
said the University has no official position
on the issue.
LSA sophomore Beth Turk from West-
ern Springs, Illinois said she has had
good experiences riding the train because
of her interactions with other passengers
and her ability to work efficiently while
traveling. She said she finds the proposed
cuts disheartening because of the possi-
bility of Amtrak's cancellation. "There
isn't any reason to stop something that
really benefits students," she said.
But LSA Sophomore Nick Cheolas said
he could understand the remarks of U.S.
Secretary of Transportation Norman Mine-
ta, who has endorsed these cuts because he
feels they will benefit Amtrak in the long
run by making it part of a competitive mar-
ket. Cheolas said he thought the transfer of
responsibility to the states would open up
the rail service to competition and therefore
bring the rail fares down.
"I can understand fearing the loss of
trains, but if there's a profit to make, a
company will step up," Cheolas said.
Still, other students who frequently ride
the train put their hopes into this letter-
writing campaign. LSA freshman Mary
Wilcop said she usually rides the train
home to Chicago.
"Letters usually seem to be effective. I
don't know if it would lead to protesting,
but who knows?" she said.
