light of a contract violation. A poignant
case of a laid-off lecturer, they said, is
proof of the school's lack of respect for
A lecturer who was laid off almost
two years ago and has been waiting on
the call-back list - a list for laid-off
lectures who wish to be contacted once
positions become available - has not
been rehired for the upcoming term,
despite a promise made by School of
Art and Design Dean Bryan Rogers that
she would be rehired, Herold said. Rog-
ers made the promise at a public griev-
ance hearing where many members of
the administration were present, includ-
ing Assistant Provost Jeffery Frumkin,
After being informed that ajob would
not be available for the lecturer next
term, Herold said she requested that the
fired lecturer be allowed to stay on the
call-back list since she had been prom-
ised a job, but her request was denied.
Herold said the next step would be to
file a grievance.
"It's not comforting," she said,
"because we know they will say no."
Problems have also arisen con-
.. : : . .: .
cerning the Comprehensive Studies
Program and instructors who are per-
forming teaching duties but are not
classified as lecturers. CSP is a unit of
LSA that provides academic support
and advising as well as course instruc-
tion that is tailored to minority stu-
dents, especially the Summer Bridge
Herold said some administrative
staff members who were perform-
ing teaching duties were compen-
sated by extra pay in the past. This
semester, however, LSA has decided
not to provide compensation for
these staff members and instead
have added teaching duties as a part
of their job.
This has taken place even though
these staff members are not classi-
fied as lecturers and the number of
students involved in the program
has grown, she said.
"This is LSA just wanting to save
money," Herold said. The University's
position is that since the individuals are
not classified as lecturers, LEO cannot
represent them," Herold said.
She added, however, that since the
issue deals with teaching duties, LEO
should be allowed to voice the staff

For these reasons, resolutions are
likely to pass in both the House and the
Senate that would make the act appli-
cable only to those students who are
convicted of a drug offense while they
are receiving financial aid.
But even if these resolutions pass,
alleviating concerns that the act's
retroactive application is unfair, the
ACLU will still file a lawsuit to stop
any stripping of financial aid from
"(The provision leaves) tens of thou-
sands of students behind," said Tom
Angell, campaigns director of Students
for Sensible Drug Policy, which will be
a partner in the suit.
Angell said that regardless of the suc-
cess of the suit, he hopes it will provide
additional pressure on Congress.
"Even if we don't end up winning in
court, certainly it's going to raise the
profile of the issue," he said.
The ACLU is currently searching for
student plaintiffs who were affected by
the provision to bring the case to court.

ment should be intervening in and that
he thinks students and the city could
strike a compromise by educating ten-
ants about the risks of having a couch
on a porch.
Dale Winling, a Rackham student
who is director of the New West Side
Association, a group representing the
interests of renters and students, said
more important and effective ways of
treating fire risk would be aimed at
faulty wiring or other building stan-
dards for landlords.
"There are much more serious fire
hazards than upholstered furniture on
porches," Winling said. "I don't think
this is a public health issue."
The New West Side Association has
filed a Freedom of Information Act
request for the reports on the two fires
the Fire Department has attributed to
upholstered couches on porches.
Comeau, of the Center for Campus
Fire Safety, said four common trends
in student house fires are a lack of
automatic fire sprinklers, missing/dis-
abled smoke alarms, careless disposal
of smoking materials and alcohol con-

based policies." Nowinski also said he
supports affirmative action, but he said
he does not hope to make this a major
campaign issue. Reconciliation of the
platforms would be vital before the par-
ties could combine, he said.
Both Nowinski and Radina said they
believe the loss of interest in student
government can be attributed to the poor
performance of the dominant Students 4
Michigan, which they said results from
of a lack of accountability coupled with
an absence of direction.
LSA senior Max Milstein said it
seems MSA doesn't do much to help
students and that "when they do actually
do something, it doesn't seem to work
Nowinski and Radina both said they
hope to improve MSA's credibility either
by taking a significant slice of S4M's
majority or by putting pressure on S4M
to accomplish party goals.
DAAP, which has close ties with the
controversial pro-affirmative action
group BAMN, is considered a single-
issue party and holds only four seats
on the assembly. "S4M has been domi-
nating for too long," Radina said. "No
party has been stepping up to challenge
them, and so there is no way of holding
(S4M) accountable for bad choices."
"(MSA) no longer has respect around
campus because they aren't as serious as
they should be," Radina said, recalling
current MSA President Jesse Levine's
campaign flyer featuring a picture of
"Uncle Jesse," a character from the pop-
ular '90s sitcom "Full House." Radina
said he believes S4M needs "to be more
serious in order to make MSA a more
respectable campus organization again."
S4M was started last winter by former
members of the now-defunct Students
First Party, which was the dominant
MSA party when it was dissolved. Like
Students First, S4M aims to include
representatives of a diverse array of
campus groups and communities. The
party does not have a strict ideology, but
includes members of liberal as well as
Nowinski said the biggest problem
with S4M lies in the fact that "S4M
doesn't have a platform - as a group, it
doesn't stand for anything specific."
"It doesn't have a clear vision," he
said. "It stands for being elected."
Both Nowinski and Radina said they
hope to avoid this issue in their own
parties by forming distinct party plat-
Although officially nonpartisan now,
MSA President Jesse Levine said he pre-
viously chose to be a part of S4M because
the party is composed of many "student
leaders who represented many different
ideologies but who all had the common
goal of making campus better."
"We don't need parties with strict
ideological divisions," Levine said.
"Students need leaders that will repre-
sent them well."
As far as student interest is con-
cerned, Milstein, the LSA senior who
was skeptical about MSA, said: "If you
add new parties with new ideas that are
interested in connecting with students,
it will help."
