U' agrees to deal with LEO

Contract includes
2.5-percent raise for
Ann Arbor lecturers
By GABE NELSON
Daily News Editor
After a summer of negotiation,
the Lecturers' Employee Organiza-
tion agreed to a new contract with

the University last night.
Ninety-seven percent of voting
members approved the contract,
the second collective bargaining
agreement approved by LEO since
the group's formation five years
ago. LEO represents about 1,300
non-tenure-track faculty members
on the University's three campus-
es, including 750 at the Ann Arbor
campus.
The contract will take effect

immediately and apply untilthe end
of the 2009-2010 academic year.
It gives a 2.5-percent raise to
lecturers on the Ann Arbor campus
and 3-percent raises to lecturers on
the Flint and Dearborn campuses.
The minimum salary for Ann
Arbor lecturers will also increase
to $32,000 for the 2008-2009 aca-
demic year, a $1,000 raise. Lectur-
ers at the Dearborn campus will
now have minimum annual salaries

of $26,000 while lecturers at the
Flint campus will be paid at least
$25,000.
Assistant Provost Jeff Frumkin,
the University's lead negotiator,
said there was never any doubt that
lecturers would receive a pay raise.
LEO President Bonnie Halloran
said the lecturers were pleased that
University negotiators made pay
raises a priority.

Panel discusses
racism on campus

BEAT BOY

Forum takes on
ignorance,
hip-hop culture
By CHRIS HERRING
Daily News Editor
Racism exists at the University
of Michigan - that much was clear
in a panel discussion last night that
took on topics like cultural igno-
rance and whether people have a

responsibility to defy racial stereo-
types.
Marc Cooks, president of Phi
Beta Sigma fraternity, asked pan-
elists what they thought about a
"Ghettofied" theme party that he
said took place at the University of
Michigan where guests were invit-
ed to dress so they fit stereotypes
of black people.
A similar party that took place at
Clemson University made national
headlines last year when a group of

Teen suicide rates climbed
at the highest rate in 15 years
in 2004, the Center for Disease
Control and Prevention reported
in a study released last week.
The number of suicides among
people aged 10 to 24 decreased
by 28 percent between 1990 and
2003, but it rebounded by eight
percent in 2004, the most recent

year for which data is available,
the study showed.
According to the report, sui-
cides among females ages 10 to 14
increased by almost 76 percent,
suicide rates among females 15 to
19 increased by about 32 percent
and suicides among males in that
category increased by 9 percent.
Dr. IleanaArias, director of the
CDC's National Center for Injury
Prevention and Control, said in
