the University's Board of Regents
July meeting. The $.50 fee was
packaged with a $.50 increase in
funding and submitted as a total $1
ase in student fees.

It passed by a single vote - four to three.
The three votes against it came from Repub-
licans, who expressed concerns that the extra
financial burden on students would send a
negative message in a time of budget cuts.
"It seems to me to be the wrong time
to be increasing expenditures and add-
ing to the financial burden on students,"
Regent Andrew Richner-(R-Grosse Point
Park) said.
Levine said the extra $.50 - less than the
cost of a can of soda and about a thousands
less than a private lawyer - will provide a
great service to students at a good value.
"SLS is something you may not look for
before you need it, but once you do, it's really
an important service," Levine said.
The fee increase will be SLS's first
since 1998.

DAILY
Continued from page 1A
"It can be tough to catch instances of plagiarism before
it goes to print, but I think that our response afterwards
has been appropriate."
In recent weeks, The Michigan Daily has been
embroiled in a controversy with the University's
chapter of the NAACP and other groups on cam-
pus over an editorial cartoon that ran on Nov. 28.
Students voicing concerns about the cartoon feel
that the Daily should not have published the cartoon
because it is racist.
Fresard said he hopes that The Michigan Daily can
continue to become more sensitive to multicultural
issues. The recommendations of a multicultural com-
mission, created by Pesick, will go into effect next year
under Fresard.
Recommendations include attending meetings of
minority groups to increase the number of minorities
writing for the Daily and holding workshops to teach
reporters to be more sensitive in their coverage.
"I think, over the next year as we implement the
suggestions of the Daily's multicultural commission
and we look for new ways to get feedback from our

readers and to be accountable to our readers, we will
see some improvement in those areas," Fresard said.
"Hopefully the Daily will begin to reflect, in its staff
and coverage, the diversity of the campus and the
community that we cover."
Fresard appointed Assistant Managing Editor Ash-
ley Dinges as his managing editor. Because Dinges has
a specialty in design, Fresard hopes that she can assist
with a total redesign of The Michigan Daily in the com-
ing semester.
Daily staff members also elected the new editorial
page editors, Emily Beam and Chris Zbrozek, on Nov.
11. Fresard said: "I have a lot of confidence that they will
be taking the page in a more local direction."
"They're going to focus on looking at how local issues
affect students, and they're also going to be expanding
the opinion section to include op-ed pages more often."
The staff chose RC sophomore Karl Stampfl as the
managing news editor. Fresard worked as an editor
while Stampfl was a reporter and said he is confident
that Stampfl's credentials as a reporter will carry over to
his new position.
The Daily sports staff also recently elected LSA
sophomore Jack Herman to become the new managing
sports editor.

drew the most attention from
University community in October
for his appearance at the Second

National Conference on the Palestine
Solidarity Movement.
Students Allied for Freedom and
Equality held the conference amid
strong protests from the Israeli com-
munity.
The controversy peaked when two
pro-Israeli students filed suit against
the University days before the confer-
ence to stop the event or ban its speak-
ers from campus. A judge denied the
lawsuit a hearing in the Washtenaw
County Circuit Court the day before the
conference began.
