term, when there was no under-
graduate Public Policy school,
leaving Public Policy with no
seats on, the assembly. A long
MSA battle ensued, and the
assembly decided to give Public
Policy a seat at last Tuesday's
meeting.
Bouchard then overruled the
assembly's decision,sending out
candidate application materials
based on the apportionment
plans - without a Public Policy
seat - originally brought before
the assembly. In an interview
last Thursday, Bouchard said
he based his decision on the
most readily available version
of the Compiled Code online.
But he said Sohoni informed
him that a more updated code
existed, prompting him to take
down the candidate materials
Thursday night.
The assembly amended the

"They were activists," Logan
said.
The event, which spanned
four hours, was supposed
to split into different work-
shops after a lunch break, but
because so few people attend-
ed, a group discussion was
held instead.
During the discussion, LSA
junior Judith Vazquez said she
was concerned about the dis-
tance between Trotter Mul-
ticultural fCenter and Central
Campus. She said it's difficult
for students to meet at Trotter
House when the location is far
away from where many stu-
dents live.
The Trotter House is locat-
ed on Washtenaw Avenue just

to take seat reapportionment
responsibilities away from the
Central Student Judiciary and
MSA's Rules and Elections
Committee, which previously
controlled seat allotment, but
the responsibilities were not
explicitly assigned to any other
body. This amendment is not
included in the version of the
assembly's code posted on the
MSA website as of last night -
the same version initially used
by Bouchard.
Sohoni said that over the
weekend he went through the
minutes from each MSA meet-
ing since last November and
will post a fully updated ver-
sion of the code on the MSA
website today.
MSA President Zack Yost,
who was student general coun-
sel last year, denied that the
code hadn't been updated regu-
larly, but he said there were a
few times when the updating
wasn't as thorough as it could
have been. The student general

nue, about half a mile from the
Michigan Union.
Many students agreed that
the campus is disconnected
and that there's a need to,
reach out to those who might
not otherwise get involved on
campus.
"I think people need to step
outside their comfort level,"
said LSA junior Mercedes Wil-
liams.
Students also discussed the
potential danger of campus
groups becoming too central-
ized. For example, a freshman
attempting to explore his or her
identity might have different
needs than a graduate student
who has been on campus for a
few years.
LSA junior Tiffany Torres
said a student's first year at the
University often defines that
person's entire college experi-
ence.
"People learn where they're
welcome and where they're
not," she said.
Friday's conference marked

counsel is usually in charge of.
updating the code when MSA
changes a part of it. In an inter-
view last week, Yost said the
code hadn't been updated since
February.
Planning for this month's
election has exposed many
weak places in the assembly's
code, Sohoni said. After the
election, MSA will change the
code as needed to assure that
the same problems don't reoc-
cur, he said.
Bouchard's seat reappor-
tionment plan renders the
plan approved by the assembly
Thursday null and void, though
the assembly's plan also allowed
a seat for Public Policy.
Sohoni said Bouchard
was able to modify the pre-
approved seat allotment to
confirm with the registrar's
report because the updated
compiled code heavily sug-
gests that the election board
- which Bouchard heads -
should have final say over seat
reapportionment.
the University has hosted a
discussion about the campus's
atmosphere. The first confer-
ence, held in January, took
place shortly after the imple-
mentation of Proposal 2, which
banned public institutions in
the state of Michigan from
using race or gender based
affirmative action.
Sharon Vaughters, senior
assistant to the dean of stu-
dents, said the biggest thing she
noticed aboutthe discussion was
the greater diversity of the audi-
ence than at the first conference
and the variety of topics.
Vaughters said she hopes a
central location for communi-
cation and networking between
student groups will be estab-
lished.
Dean of Students Sue Eklund
said she'll document the ideas
discussed at the forum and
plan a follow-up meeting to talk
more about their implementa-
tion.
"I'm very optimistic that this
group and other groups will find
a way to work together," she
said.

A gritty Henne
leads late surge

GAME From page 1A
reception on, a vertical route
Henne audibled to at the line. Had
the junior not come down with the
leaping grab, Michigan (6-0 Big
Ten, 8-2 overall) would have faced
a fourth-and-12 with no timeouts
remaining and been out of field-
goal range.
The catch was just the ending
of a magical fourth-quarter per-
formance by a gritty Henne, who
along with his fellow seniors, will
graduate 4-0 against Michigan
State (1-5, 5-5). The senior class is
also one step closer to ending its
last season exactly where it did as
freshmen, in Pasadena.
Regardless of the outcome of
this weekend's Wisconsin gaine,
Michigan's Nov. 17 matchup with
Ohio State will be for at least a
share of the Big Ten title, and a
win would mean a second straight
Rose Bowl berth for the Wolver-
ines.
Turn back the clock to two
months ago, and that's a fate few
would have expected for this once-
directionless squad.
"We've been through alot," said
Hart, who in limited action still
topped 100 yards for the eighth
straight time. "Injuries, close
games, being down - all that kind
of stuff - it shows you the heart of
this team."
And nothing showed its heart
more than Michigan's final two
offensive drives.
Trailing by 10, Henne led a
seven-play drive that lasted less
than a minute, with all but one
snap resulting in a first down. On
the one play Henne didn't quarter-
back - he limped off the field with
an ankle injury - freshman quar-
terback Ryan Mallett fumbled the
ball after being sacked. Mike Hart,
playing a week before his sched-
uled return with an ankle injury,
opportunistically picked it up and
broke a tackle to turn what could
have been Michigan State's nail

in the coffin into a positive for the
Wolverines.
"I wasn't thinking anything
except thank-God for a first down,
because we didn't have many of
them. We got a break there," Carr
said of Hart's recovery.
Henne returned the next play,
and five snaps later, he found Greg
Mathews in the left corner of the
endzone on a perfect touch pass to
cut the deficit to three.
The Michigan defense, which
held the Spartans to just85yards in
the first half but struggled might-
ily against the run in the second,
now had to step up after yielding
21 straight points to Michigan
State.
A look back to the second half's
first 20 minutes wouldn't have
inspired much optimism.
Javon Ringer's merry-go-round
72-yard run set up Michigan
State's lead-taking touchdown
with a quarter left. That drive was
bookended by two long, bruising
drives by the Spartans. Twenty-
one of the drives' 24 plays were
runs, most of which went through
a tired Michigan defense.
But this time around, the Mich-
igan defense was ready. Down by
three, it forced Michigan State to
punt.
And after Michigan regained
the lead on offense, suddenly the
Spartans were racing against the
clock with its ground game shack-
led.
"Had it become a running
game, had there been six, seven
minutes left (instead of two),
it would have been much more
difficult for us, because in the
second half, they had us on our
heels," Carr said.
The pound-it-down-your-throat
Spartan offense had to spread out,
and after being sacked, it was
knocked out of its comfort zone
and eventually ran out of downs.
More important, it ran out of
time to pull off the upset it so des-
perately wanted.
