New Law Library
off-limits to non-
Law students
Oct. 14, 1981 - With the con-
struction of the University Law
School's new underground library,
the Allan F. and Alene Smith Law
Library Addition, new constraints
on use by University students arose.
Undergraduates and non-Law gradu-
ate students were no longer allowed
to study in the new building.
Beverly Pooley, director of the
Law Library, emphasized the need
for Law students to use the Law
Library's resources on a daily basis
without being interrupted by non-
Law students.
Pooley said the presence of non-
Law students in the old Law Library
often precluded Law students from
performing their work.
"It was like a zoo down there,"
Law student Ron Klein said of the
library when populated with under-
graduates.
Nonetheless, the restriction did
not prevent non-Law students from
entering the new facility altogether.
With a professor's note or a visitor's
pass, other students would be able
to conduct research or peruse the

Granholm wants to keep Delphi jobs

LANSING (AP) - Gov. Jennifer Granholm told
Delphi Chairman and CEO Robert "Steve" Miller
during a half-hour, private meeting yesterday that
her administration will work hard to keep Delphi
jobs in Michigan.
"The governor made it clear to Mr. Miller during
that meeting that she and we will go anywhere, at
any time, do anything to keep Delphi jobs in Michi-
gan," Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd said.
"All you have to do is look at Governor Gran-
holm's track record ... with companies that have
gone through crisis, whether it's Kmart or Electro-
lux, to know we will do whatever we can to keep
jobs in this state," Boyd added, referring to the retail
giant that went through bankruptcy and a Greenville
refrigerator plant that will shut down later this year.
The meeting came five days after Granholm said
in response to Delphi's bankruptcy filing that she
was "deeply disturbed" by the automotive parts
supplier's decision and what it would mean for the
nearly 15,000 Delphi workers in Michigan.
"I am angry that this action occurs one day after
headlines blared that Delphi employees were being
asked to accept brutal, draconian pay cuts while
upper management is being offered golden para-
chutes," the governor said in a statement Saturday.
"Globalization is ravaging Michigan's manufactur-
ing job base."
Granholm has taken hits this week from Michi-
gan Republicans, who say the governor isn't doing
enough to persuade Delphi to keep at least some of
its Michigan workers in the state as it looks to reor-
ganize.
Instead, Republicans are praising Indiana Gov.
Mitch Daniels - a Republican and President Bush's
former budget director - as a better example of
leadership.

"The Indianapolis Star highlights the dif-
ference between Gov. Mitch Daniels aggres-
sive and early approach (to working with
Delphi) and Granholm's 'holding pattern' of
high unemployment, complete inaction, blame-
shifts and temper tantrums," the party said in
a statement Thursday. "Maybe ... Granholm
could have spent time learning about leader-
ship from Daniels."
Boyd said the governor is working with Delphi
leaders and getting the Michigan Economic Devel-
opment Corp. involved to see what the state can do
to keep Delphi plants here.
"The governor requested this meeting with Mr.
Miller. The MEDC has requested a meeting with
Delphi staff. We will be anxiously awaiting their
restructuring plan. But we will be putting things in
motion," Boyd said.
Earlier this week, Michigan GOP Chairman Saul
Anuzis criticized Granholm's husband, Dan Mul-
hern, for telling The Saginaw News that low-skilled
workers are part of Michigan's economic problems.
"Jennifer Granholm chooses to criticize Michi-
gan workers rather than offer solutions to protect
their jobs," Anuzis said in a statement. "With tens
of thousands of Michigan jobs on the line, families
are looking for solutions, not callous remarks and
shameless blame shifts."
Boyd said such remarks were just partisan pot-
shots, noting that "Republicans have taken advan-
tage of tough times in the lives of more 14,000
Michigan workers for cheap political gains."
"Rather than sending out press releases promot-
ing Mitch Daniels and criticizing Governor Gra-
nholm, the Republicans ought to be getting their
Republican leaders in the Legislature to pass the
governor's economic plan," she said.

High school newspaper
adviser to gt tlousands
after settlig awsit

FRANKLIN, Ind. (AP) - A former high
school newspaper adviser who was removed
after the paper printed a story about a student
being charged with murder stands to collect
$74,000 to settle his federal lawsuit against the
school district.
The lawsuit claimed the school district violated
Chad Tuley's First Amendment rights by removing
him as adviser after the story appeared.
Tuley, 26, hopes to return to the classroom next
fall and eventually to oversee another student news-
paper - but not in Franklin Township Schools.
A settlement finalized this week bars him from
ever applying for a job in the school district.
Tuley will remain on paid leave until May 30,
when his resignation takes effect. After that, the
district will pay an additional $40,000.
The district suspended Tuley with pay Nov. 12
after the newspaper printed the story about a 17-
year-old junior who was arrested at school on charg-
es he fatally stabbed and beat a 67-year-old man.
A letter from the school district cited insubor-
dination as the reason for the suspension.
District officials said the story should not
have been published partly because the sister of
the student who was arrested still attended the
school in southeastern Marion County. They
also said Principal Kevin Koers had directed
Tuley not to print it.

Tuley disagreed, saying Koers expressed con- :
cern beforehand but did not bar Tuley from pub-
lishing the story. Tuley also said then that he felt
the story was newsworthy and that students were .< >
talking about the arrest. >
Franklin schools Superintendent E.B. Carver
has said Tuley lacked a proper journalism teaching. . .*
license and that his removal from the adviser posi- f
tion was because of his conduct - not the story.
"This was never about a First Amendments.
right," Carver said this week. "It was a person-
nel issue. Any time you settle for money, you're{
never too strong about your First Amendment
rights."
Tuley and his attorney, Ed DeLaney, declined
to respond specifically to that comment, citing a
clause in the agreement barring any statementsp<
about the matter. y
The settlement agreement also prohibits either
side from releasing it publicly unless required .~
by law. The Indianapolis Star obtained a copy .
