MURSITPINAR, Turkey (AP)
- The U.S.-led coalition intensi-
fied its aerial bombardment of
Islamic State positions Thurs-
day in the Syrian border town of
Kobani as the extremist group
fought street battles with Kurdish
forces and reportedly rushed in
reinforcements.
The battle for the town near
the frontier with Turkey has
emerged as a major early test for
the air campaign aimed at rolling
back and eventually destroying
the extremist group.
It has also strained ties
between Washington and Ankara
over the long-term U.S. strategy
in Syria. On Thursday, the U.S.

officials in Ankara and requested
anonymity.
The fight for Kobani has
brought Syria's civil war yet
again to Turkey's doorstep, and
for weeks the U.S. and its allies
have pressed Ankara to take a
more robust role in the coalition.
In addition, Kurds have held
massive demonstrations across
Turkey in which they accuse the
government, which has deployed
its tanks just across the fron-
tier, of doing nothing to save the
town.
Ankara is suspicious of the
Syrian Kurdish forces fighting in
Kobani, seeing them as an exten-
sion of the Kurdish PKK, which
waged a long and bloody insur-
gency against Turkey.
Responding to the criticism,
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut
Cavusoglu said it was unrealis-
tic to expect Turkey to launch a
ground war against the Islamic
State group on its own.

Diag Day seeks to
provide avenue for
student needs to be
addressed on campus
By ALYSSA BRANDON
Daily StaffReporter
LSA Student Government
held their annual "Diag Day"
Thursday to give students an
opportunity to voice their con-
cerns about the University.
Representatives from LSA
SG set up a station on the Diag
at which students were able to
submit written complaints and
express concerns to representa-
tives that they would like to see
addressed.
LSA freshman Caitlin Stew-
art, an SG representative,
worked at the event and heard a
wide variety of complaints from
students.
"We've heard everything
from getting more silverware in
some of the dining halls to hav-
ing a girls-only section in the,
CCRB," Stewart said. "We've

also heard complaints that the
Fish Bowl is too cold."
The Student Life Committee
is responsible for addressing the
various concerns students voice
at the University. Public Poli-
cy junior Hilary Forrest, SLC
chairwoman, said LSA SG start-
ed holding Diag Day five years
ago after working to gather all
the complaints they received
from LSA.
"It started with the creation
of the e-mail account This-
Sucks@umich.edu, where stu-
dents could send emails about
things they didn't like so much
here at the University," Forrest
said.
From there, Diag Day was
created to further publicize the
creation of the e-mail account,
as well as to give students an
opportunity to discuss their
concerns in person.
Based on the comments LSA
SG received Thursday, For-
rest said students seemed to be
concerned about the condition
of the facilities at the Univer-
sity, ranging from getting more
printers in the UGLi, to having
more bike racks installed around

campus. Committee members
already have an idea of how
they'll address some of these
concerns in the future.
"We plan to serve as a liai-
son for the students, and to
work to set up meetings with
appropriate administration to
bring these concerns to their
attention," Forrest said. "For
instance, regarding having
more printers in the UGLi, we'll
work with ITS to see what we
can do to get more printers for
students."
The Student Life Commit-
tee also plans to meet Oct. 14 to
read through all the concerns
they received in detail and
develop a plan to address them.
Overall, Forrest said ' the
committee hopes that Diag Day
and the promotion of the eamail
account will let students know
they have a forum they can use
to safely express their opinions.
"We want "students to know
that they have an outlet they can
use to voice their concerns, and
that they have a committee that
is working hard to make sure
they can maximize their college
experiences."
