CSJ is part of the Michigan Student
Assembly. If private mediation does not
resolve the conflict, CSJ holds a hearing
to determine whether a trial is neces-
Susan Wilson, director of the Office
of Student Activities and Leadership,
will mediate a meeting today with
Beckham and the show's organizers.
At the meeting, each side will pres-
ent its case in an attempt to resolve
CSJ Chief Justice Tim Harrington
said he is confident that the two sides
will reach a solution. It is unlikely
the complaint will reach a trial in
front of CSJ.
It is not clear what power CSJ
would have over the production,
but Harrington said it is unlikely it
would be able to stop the show.
Beckham said he hopes his meet-
ing with the show's organizers will
address his complaint and generate
ideas about how to better approach
casting in the future.
"I would like a conversation over
how it was done, why it was done
and how we can do it better," Beck-
ham said. "I think raising awareness
of domestic violence is very impor-
tant. But when it comes to issues
like race, we need to be careful that
we aren't silencing other voices."
Beckham said it is not yet clear
whether the production of this year's
show will be interrupted.
The play is scheduled for Feb. 19.
Since announcing their intention
to employ an all-minority cast last
October, the producers and directors
of the production have been show-
ered with criticism from students
and community members who argue
that the policy runs contrary to the
movement's goal of female solidar-
ity and empowerment.
The monologues are part of the V-
Day College Campaign, an interna-
tional political movement that works
to stop violence against women. The
V-Day organization, which owns
the rights to the play, requires that
campus organizers adhere to various
stipulations concerning the produc-
tion of the monologues.
For example, the show must be
open to all women regardless of
race, and no men are allowed on-
stage during a performance of the
Additionally, because the produc-
tion is also registered as a student
organization with MSA, organizers
must comply with the University's
state-mandated policy of nondis-
crimination, which prohibits exclu-
sion based on race.
The production dodged the contro-
versy last month by casting women
who are white, but "identify" with
other colors. For example, one cast
member identifies herself as "pink."
"At auditions, we experienced white
women identifying themselves as
'women of color,' " co-director
Molly Raynor told The Michigan
Daily last month. "Instead, some are
white women who identify them-
selves with various colors."
Beckham's accusations addressed
the production as a whole and did not
name an individual producer, direc-
tor or executive, Harrington said.
Because he spent last semester
abroad - when debate and discus-
sion over the casting policy began
- co-director Whitehead said
Beckham might be misinformed
about the organizers' goal to have an
"As far as I know, (Beckham) has
never attempted to become involved
or come to us, and I am assuming
he is basing (the complaint) on what
he has heard from other people,"
Beckham claims that he under-
stands the issue well enough,
despite his absence from campus
"My being out of the country had
nothing to do with the decisions that
were made," Beckham said. "I'm
not ignorant to the facts, but the
situation remains unchanged. It is
a question of whether the decisions
were proper in the first place."

Herrmann - the longest tenured member of
the assistant coaching staff - has been criti-
cized in the past. specifically for his unit's per-
formance in late-game situations.
Michigan finished the year 7-5, its worst record
since 1984 (6-6). In four of those loses, the Wol-
verines surrendered the game-winning score
in the final five minutes of the game. Three of
those plays occurred within the final minute of
Rumors have swirled that an NFL coaching
job looms in Herrmann's future. USA Today
reported that the Dallas Cowboys have expressed
interest in hiring him as their linebackers' coach,
attempting to fill a hole opened when Gary Gibbs
left the team for the New Orleans Saints.
English's return may quell the fears of some
high school coaches, who expressed concern
about the timing of his departure. English
announced his plans less than a week after last
Wednesday's signing day, when recruits formal-
ized their scholarship decisions.
On Tuesday, Angelo Gasca, high school coach
of the incoming safety Jonas Mouton, told The
Ann Arbor News: "It's pretty disappointing for
Jonas. One of the links these young men have
to the University is the coaches that they have
Mouton, a highly-touted prospect, told Wol-
verines coach Lloyd Carr just two days prior to
the event that he wanted to attend Michigan.
English's move marks a major turning point
in what has been an eventful off-season for the
Last week, offensive coordinator Terry Malone
accepted a job as tight end coach with the New
Orleans Saints. Carr looked in-house for a suc-
cessor, tapping special teams coach Mike DeBord
for the spot. DeBord led Michigan's offense for
three seasons (1997-99) before leaving to take the
head coaching position at Central Michigan. In
his first year as offensive coordinator, Michigan
won the national championship. DeBord rejoined
the Wolverines in 2004.
According to some sources, the coaching staff
shuffle may not yet be finished. There has been
speculation that quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler
had received interest from NFL teams.
On Tuesday, Loeffler told The Detroit News he
had no intentions of leaving Ann Arbor.
"I am not leaving the University of Michigan,"
Loeffler said. "I am happy and perfectly content

second and indefinitely after the third. For
selling illegal drugs, a student can lose fed-
eral aid for two years after the first offense.
After the second offense, though, he can
lose it indefinitely.
According to Students for Sensible Drug
Policy, a nonprofit group based in Wash-
ington D.C., more than 175,000 students
have been affected by the law.
Margaret Rodriguez, senior associate
director of the University's financial aid
office, said she didn't know of any Univer-
sity students the law has affected. It might
make a bigger difference at other universi-
ties, she said.
The law restricting federal student aid
to drug offenders has been on the books
since 1998. That year, Congress reworked
the thee-decade-old Higher Education Act,
and Rep. Mark Souder (R-Ind.) added the
"Mark Souder is the leading drug warrior
in Congress and just wants to punish people
who use drugs," Angell said. "He has no
interest in making college campuses safer."
Souder's office declined to comment
because The Michigan Daily is a college
James Geoffrey, a spokesman for Rep.
Buck McKeon (R-Calif.), said the U.S.
House Committee on Education and the
Workforce - the committee responsible for
changes to the Higher Education Act - sim-
ply attempted to correct a law they consid-
ered incorrectly implemented. McKeon is
expected to become chair of the committee
soon, and he played a large part in revising
the law to make some drug offenders eli-
gible for federal aid.
"When the original (1998) plan went
through, it was intended that you would lose
student aid for a period of probation," Geof-
frey said. "It was not intended that students
would be barred from receiving financial
But the House Committee on Education
and the Workforce still believes there should
be a penalty for drug offenders because they
need to pay their debt to society, Geoffrey
"You get kids that are working hard,
doing what they're supposed to be doing,
who are denied money for aid," Geoffrey
said. "There's only so much to go around,
so why give it to someone who's in violation
of the law?"
Many groups consider the law unfair
and ineffective. Congress has faced intense
pressure since 1998 from the American
Civil Liberties Union and SSDP, as well as
from concerned students.
"By blocking education to drug offend-
ers, it prevents them from becoming respon-
sible, tax-paying individuals," Angell said.
But according to a report released by the
United States Government Accountability
Office, the 1998 Higher Education Act nei-
ther kept drug offenders out of college nor
prevented drug use.
"We were unable to find research that
conclusively indicates whether these provi-
sions of the Higher Education Act led indi-
viduals to forgo postsecondary education or
deterred individuals from engaging in drug
use and drug-related criminal activities,"
the report said.

would have to work on over the years, and I
just kept putting together sketches and jot-
tings and sometimes completed things and
put them all in a big box. I was finally able
to do big chunks of it here (at the Universi-
ty) and finally finished the orchestration."
Bolcom has been affiliated with the Uni-
versity since 1973, but has also accumulated
numerous awards outside of his work here,
including the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for music,
two Koussevitzky Foundation awards and
four honorary doctorates.
With such a respectable past, there seems
to be little that Bolcom has left to achieve.
Still, he said, he plans to continue compos-
"I don't know (what comes next) - I'll
just go on and do more things," Bolcom
said. "I'll just keep on working, and in the
meantime, this is a very great excitement
particularly because I'm very proud of the
school and how everyone worked on this
thing together. We brought all kinds of peo-
ple together and it was just a thrill."
