Students call for meal p
Forty years ago this week Twenty-four years ago this
(Feb.14,1974) week (Feb. 16,1990)

In opposition to a proposed
increase in residence hall rates
of 8 percent, or $100 per housing
resident, members of the Hous-
ing Policy Committee revealed
their proposal for alternate
budgeting situations that would
avoid the increase.
Several of HPC's sugges-
tions included replacing dorm
staffers with student workers
and closing the Student Activi-
ties Building. HPC member
David Faye told the Daily that
the group's opposition to the
increase stemmed mainly from
the view that it was unneces-,

Led by several members of the
Michigan Student Assembly, a
petition drive was launched to
reform the University's meal plan
options. The meal plans at the
time were set by meals per week,
and petitioners wanted to change
that to one set number forthe year.
LSA freshman Rob Rielly,
a Michigan Student Assembly
member and one of the leaders of
the push, said the current meal
plans were unfair to students.
"Right now, you get 13 meals a
week, two meals a day and if you
don't eat one of those meals you
lose it," Rielly said. "What we're
pushing for is spreading those

meals out. You get 400 meals for
the year, and you can budget your
meals however you want."
Ten years ago this week
(Feb. 13,2004)
Jennifer Gratz, a plaintiff in the
2003 Supreme Court case against
the University's affirmative admis-
sion policies, spoke at the Univer-
sity amid alarge-scale protest.
Gratz was hosted on campus
by the University's chapter of
the College Republicans, who
had asked her to talk about her
experience and perspective dur-
ing the court case and as one of
the organizers for a statewide
ban on affirmative action.

Next step uncertain in Woody
Allen assault allegations

Director's adopted
daughter first leveled
accusations in 1992
NEW YORK (AP) - A week
bracketed by op-ed letters of
accusation and denial of child
molestation left little clarity and
scant hope for resolution in a bit-
ter saga that has haunted Woody
Allen and the Farrow family for
more than two decades.
The back-and-forth between
Allen and his adopted daugh-
ter, Dylan Farrow, breathed new
fire into a long dormant scandal,
but what happens next is uncer-
tain, with the possibility of legal
recourse and continued scrutiny
in the weeks and months ahead.
Farrow, in her most detailed
account yet, alleged in an open
letter published Feb. 1 by The
New York Times that Allen "sex-
ually assaulted" her when she
was 7 years old at the Farrows'

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -
Thousands of people angered
by months of anti-government
protests in the Ukrainian
capital converged on one of the
protesters' barricades Saturday,
but retreated after meeting
sizeable resistance.
Although the confrontation
ended without violence, it
underlined the tensions that
persist as the protests slog
through a third month with no
sign of concession from either
The anti-government
protesters have set up an
extensivetent camp ondowntown
Kiev's main square and occupy
three nearby buildings, including
the city hall, that they use for
operations centers, sleeping
quarters and even an improvised
library. They have also built
extensive barricades of earth,
bags of ice and refuse on the
fringes of the area.
About 2,000 people streamed

toward the barricade near city
hall at midday, blocking traffic
on the capital's main avenue and
placing tires in the roadway.
IgorPolishchuk,oneofthe men
placing the tires, said the crowd
intended to show its peaceful
opposition to the protests that
have pushed the country into a
political crisis and complained
that police had done little against
the protesters.
"It's a critical mass in there,
without control," he said. "The
authorities aren't anywhere
Protesters from the anti-
government side stood atop the
three-meter (10-foot) barricade
and members of the protest
camp's self-defense marshaled,
many of them carrying metal
shields and protectingtheir heads
with cycling or hockey headgear.
After about two hours, the
protesters' opponents pulled
back, with the self-defense
volunteers following, banging
their shields with rods in an
eerie imitation of the technique
used by the country's feared riot
After riot police violently
dispersed two of the early
protest rallies, crowds swelled
- sometimes exceeding 100,000
people - and the protest issues

expanded to denunciation of
police brutality and calls for the
resignation of President Viktor
The protests began in late
November after Yanukovych
backed away from an agreement
to deepen ties with the European
Union and pursue closer relations
with Russia. A wide swath
of Ukrainian society resents
Russia's long dominance or
influence on Ukraine and avidly
supports integration with the EU
as a way to bolster democracy and
human rights.
Many of the demonstrators
who challenged the protesters'
barricade on Saturday wore St.
George's ribbons, a traditional
Russian military emblem.
Yanukovych's strongest support
is in the Russian-speaking
eastern part of the country.
Yanukovych met Russian
President Vladimir Putin
on Friday on the sidelines of
the opening day of the Sochi
Olympics. No details of the
meeting were made public.
After Yanukovych shelved the
EU deal, Russia agreed to a $15
billion financial aid package to
Ukraine; his opponents fear that
was a prelude to joining a trade
bloc that Moscow is leading as a
counterweight to the EU.
