39 years ago this week
(Nov.22,1975)
The University's Board of Regents
voted against creating a non-voting
studentseatontheboard and against
endorsing student involvement in
other parts of the University's poli-
cymakingprocess.
In a short statement, Regent
David Laro (R), characterized
the idea of a non-voting student
member as "inappropriate."
Regent Robert Nederlander
(D) also read a resolution from
the board that said they were
unwilling to order other Univer-
sity entities to include students.
The two proposals originat-
ed from recommendations of
the Commission to Study Stu-

dent Governance, set up by the
Regentstwo years prior.
30years ago this week
(Nov.20,1984)
The Committee on the Eco-
nomic Status of the Faculty
announced University faculty
salaries trailed behind those at
peer institutions.
The announcement came as
part of the committee's annu-
al report to the faculty Senate
Assembly. In previous reports,
the CESF had suggested contin-
ued salary increases as an effort
to establish parity. Economics,
Prof. John Cross said salaries had
increased, but not to the point of
parity with other schools.

20 years ago this week
(Nov.18, 1994)
The Board of Regents criti-
cized the administration for their
seven-year licensing deal with
Nike and ordered University Sec-
retary Harold Johnson to provide
them with a summary of all the
policiesinvolved inthe contract.
"It struck me that it has pro-
found implications on how we
project ourselves to the world,"
said Regent Laurence Deitch (D).
"I submit that there are some
things that are important such as
whether or not we let a shoe com-
pany piggyback on 170 years of
tradition to peddle some shoes."

Cirdle K hosts annual
24-our servce event

'Service Day'
inspires student
outreach around
campus, Ann Arbor
By THERESE BREUCH
For the Daily
The football team had a bye
week this weekend, but students
found a pretty good substitute
for their time in the student sec-
tion.
In a span of 24 hours; stu-
dents completed 118 commu-
nity service projects in a span of
24 hours Saturday for the 10th
annual Circle K Service Day.
Circle K International is a
co-ed service organization spon-
sored by the nonprofit Kiwanis
International. Their mission is
to cultivate college students into
responsible citizens with a com-
mitment to service.

The University's chapter's
Circle K Service Day is its larg-
est event of the year. This year's
event was carnival-themed,
and the Ginsberg Center, which
served as a headquarters for the
event, was decorated with red
and white streamers, handmade
posters, colored flags and a pop-
corn machine.
Circle K President AshleyAus-
tin, a Business senior, said people
come for as many or as few proj-
ects as they want to participate
in throughout the day.
"The idea of it is just to expose
all of U of M students to commu-
nity service and show how much
of an impact can be made in one
day," Austin said.
LSA junior Taylor Sullivan,
Circle K charity awareness chair,
said the organization is hopingto
fundraise over $2,000 this year
for The Eliminate Project, which
aims to eliminate maternal and
neonatal tetanus, a potentially
fatal condition that results from

soil spores coming into contact
with exposed cuts or abrasions
during childbirth.
The main fundraiser of the
event consisted of throwing a
whipped cream pie at five mem-
bers of the leadership team at
midnight. Anyone who came
through the Ginsberg Center
during the event could donate
money designated to a member
of the leadership team. The five
members who received the most
donations were pied in the face.
In addition to Circle K Service
Day, the organization completes
three to four community service
projects each day throughout the
year and focuses on leadership
development and friendship.
"It's really amazing how you
can get together with a commu-
nity of people who are interested
in the same thing as you are,"
Sullivan said. "We have a little
token phrase, but it's really true.
People come for the service and
stay for the friendship."
