concrete that the state is doing to help the
Mike Forster, chair of MSA's External
Relations Committee, was the Univer-
sity's other representative at the confer-
ence. While he said he was impressed
with the concept of the event, he was not
pleased with the format. "I didn't feel the
questions were too great. The last one
was confusing, and the legislators didn't
know how to answer it," he said.
Representative Stephen Adamini (D-
Marquette), suggested that if Michigan-
ders want better funding for universities,
they should stop lobbying for lower taxes.
"If the message we are getting from
people is 'cut our taxes,' then that is what
we will do," he said. People cannot ask
for both lower taxes and better funding,
because there simply isn't that much
money, Adamini said.
State Rep. Gretchen Whitmer (D-
East Lansing) said it is up to students to
improve their financial situation. She said
campus grassroots organizations are the
best source of change, and that students
should take every advantage to contact
their representatives. "It is up to students
to drive the decisions being made here,"
But the sparse attendance from repre-
sentatives and senators caused some to
question how seriously legislators take
students' calls for better funding.
Rep. Scott Hummel (R-DeWitt)
assured students that he believes the
issue is in fact very important. "I made a
commitment to be here, and I take it very
seriously," he said.
Wiggins said MSA has plans to send
another set of delegates to Lansing in the
coming months to repeat this attempt to
"This was a step in the right direction,"
Wiggins said. But students have a lot more
work to do, he added, before they see any
changes to the state's funding.

Another reason for the increased
scope of this year's drive is increased
investment from the Red Cross, which
lent organizers more nurses this year
than in past years.
"The majority of the nurses in
Washtenaw County are at the drive,"
The blood battle often brings in
many first-time donors.
"I've never done it before, and
always wanted to give blood," LSA
freshman Samantha Pabich said.
"Beating OSU was part of it too."
"Usually in blood drives, you get
the same 2 percent of the population
who donate blood, but in the Blood
Battle, about 50 percent of the peo-
ple are first-time donors," said Mark
Michaels, co-chair of Alpha Phi
Omega. "At first, people are afraid
to do it. Then, after they do it for the
first time, they realize it's not really
that bad, so they come back."
The blood battle has a higher pur-
pose than beating Ohio State; blood
banks serve an important role in sav-
ing lives. One beneficiary is LSA
sophomore Ruth Barkan. She was
diagnosed with cancer twice - first
in 1989 and again in 1998. During her
treatment, she received around 100
blood transfusions. She comes every
year to a blood battle donation site to
thank the Red Cross workers.
"The American Red Cross to me is
one of those life-saving institutions,"
She said she feels most students
"never see who they're benefiting."
Without the transfusions she had
received, she says, "I don't think I
would have made it."
Students can make appointments to
donate online at givelife.org. Beach-
nau recommends that donors eat and
drink well before they donate.

the two-day election period was put into
action this year. In previous years, candi-
dates were required to cease campaign-
ing as soon as voting started. This year,
MSA successfully lobbied the Universi-
ty's residence education office - specifi-
cally Systems and Procedures Associate
Coordinator Lee Evilsizer - to change
this campaign stipulation.
Paul said S4M members were relent-
less in publicizing the elections, "doing
everything (they) could in order to get
the word out." Paul said the stepped-
up publicity campaign included more
intensive chalking and more prominent
Voting website coordinator William
Northway theorized that confusion
between the MSA election and Wednes-
day's city election could have contributed
to the exceptionally low voter turnout.
New representatives will be sworn in

in South Dakota blocked voter regis-
tration of Native Americans, officials
from Charleston County South Caroli-
na harassed blacks who wanted to vote
and Alabama's Jefferson County would
not hire blacks to work at polling cites
in white districts, the report says.
Debo Adegbile, associate director of
litigation at the NAACP Legal Defense
and Education Fund, said discrimina-
tion will not go away without a law to
keep officials in check.
"Voting officials will continue to jus-
tify these acts," she said.
Among the sections of the Voting
Rights Act set to expire is Section 5,
which requires some state and local
governments - mostly areas in the
South with a history of voter discrimi-
nation - to obtain federal authoriza-
tion before they can apply changes in
voting procedures. State and local gov-
ernments must prove that the change in
voting procedures does not discrimi-
nate based on race.
The Michigan Election Law Proj-
ect is composed of more than 100
Law School students under faculty
direction. The group researched cases
decided since 1982 dealing with viola-
tions of Section 2 of the Voting Rights
Act, which prohibits voting discrimi-
nation based on race, color or minor-

The Voting Rights Act was passed in
1965 after a crucial event of the civil
rights movement. Civil rights activists
from Alabama planned to travel 50
miles to reach the capital, Montgom-
ery, and demand equality in voting
rights. The march stopped in Selma,
Ala. after a violent clash with police.
Immediately, President Lyndon B.
Johnson called for a federal law to pro-
tect voting rights.

For Friday, Nov. 11, 2005
(March 21 to April 19)
Make no assumptions about anything
today. Delays and shortages are likely.
Even though you have strong opinions
about something today, say nothing. (By
tomorrow things will look different.)
(April 20 to May 20)
It's hard to know what friends or
groups are going to do today. Don't think
you can second-guess them. The prob-
lem is - you don't have the full picture.
(May 21 to June 20)
This is a poor day to present your
ideas to a boss, a parent, a teacher or any
authority figure in your life. Things are a
bit too loosey-goosey. Wait until tomor-
row to act.
(June 21 to July 22)
You're broad-minded and tolerant
today. You're open to new ideas that
might even conflict with your own
beliefs. (It's OK to have an open mind;
just make sure everything else doesn't
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
This is a poor day to divide things or
decide how something should be shared.
Whatever you decide today will need to
be amended tomorrow - keep that in
today. Quite likely staff shortages will
occur as well. Avoid major decisions.
Just go with the flow as best you can.
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
This is a highly creative day. Your
thinking is entirely out-of-the-box. This
is wonderful for creative projects; how-
ever, don't spend money.
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
This is a poor day for shopping or
making major decisions. However, it's a
good day to have fun and do artistic
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
This is a bad day to sign contracts or
conduct important negotiations. You
cannot rely on things. Everything is a bit
nebulous. Wait until tomorrow.
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
This is an extremely poor day for busi-
ness and commerce. Try to delay what-
ever business you can until tomorrow or
Monday. Things are too inefficient and
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
This is a goofy day. In one way, it's

However, details are confusing. Don't
