Meanwhile, LSA-SG is also work-

people interpret the requirement
itself," he said. "Some people think

These differing opinions have
lead to arguments during LSA-SG
meetings, Glauch said, citing a two-
hour debate last year.
This year, Glauch hopes to get
past the difficulties. He said that
starting this week, his commit-
tee will begin surveying student
groups at their meetings. He also
plans to poll a random sample of

results to LSA-SG at the beginning

University officials are also plan-
ning to discuss the requirement
later in the term, Young said.
"It is also important for our orga-
nization to be as accepting as pos-
sible of the variety of definitions of
what it means to be 'Latino'," Ortiz
This is not the first time the orga-
nization has changed its name to
broaden its appeal and bolster mem-
bership. The Latino Students Orga-
nization was originally called La Voz
Mexicana. In the early 1990s, the
group changed its name to La Voz
Latinato include members who were
not of Mexican descent, Ortiz said.
Ruben Soto, a Business School
junior and a member of the group,
said that with the name La Voz
Latina, people saw the group as
more of a social club than an orga-
nization that served the Latino
Soto said he hopes the Latino
Student Organization will have
an image similar to groups like
the Black Student Union. La Voz is
changing more than just its name,
he said. It's trying to change the
group so that people do not attend
activities just to meet with friends
but also to help the Latino com-
Soto said he has noticed a
decline in the Latino community
on campus this year. Usually, at
least 40 people participate in four-
day program for incoming Latino
students. This year there were

Soto said the number of par-
ticipants in La Voz Latina have
dropped off as well.

"We geta high level of truth-tell-
ing for a host of reasons," he said.
Johnston said confidentiality
and administration of the survey
by the researchers lead students
to respond honestly. As evidence,
he cited a high correspondence
between teens own reported drug
use and what they report as their
friends' drug use.
Johnston said Monitoring the
Future paints a picture of drug use
in the United States so that every-
one from parents to drug policy
makers can respond to it in the
most effective way possible.
"Initially, people way overes-
timated the amount of drug use
kids were involved in," he said,
referring to the past tendencies
of policymakers to look at an iso-
lated sample of kids showing high
drug use and apply it to the teen
population at large.
The survey results are announced
each year at a press conference
in Washington, D.C. High-rank-
ing officials like Attorney General
Alberto Gonzales and the White
House's drug czar often join John-
ston at the podium
Bill Clinton's response to the
study resulted in one of the larg-
est nationwide campaigns to
reduce cigarette smoking in teens
- a project funded by a $250 bil-
lion legal settlement with tobacco
According to the 2006 Measur-
ing the Future results, though, the
decline in tobacco use by younger
teens is nearing a halt. Johnston
sees this as a sign that it's time for
new initiatives, though he's not
sure a campaign on the federal
level will succeed in reducing teen
"Many perceptions of the dan-
gers of drug use come from the
media picking up stories and
spreading them," Johnston said.
In addition to all of the "unfortu-
nate role models" displayed nightly
on the local news, there are also
celebrities whose status may influ-
ence teen lifestyle changes when
they hit rock bottom, he said.

Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) noted
