University President Mark
Schlissel's two-week trip around
Michigan did more than just

include a sunset cruise and a win-
ery tour. It made a big impact on his
vision for the University's role in
the state.
Prior to starting his new job as
the University's president in July,
Schlissel said he wanted to take a
few weeks off during the transi-
tion. His wife, Monica Schwebs,
suggested a trip around the state to
offer an opportunity to learn about
their new home.

Daily StaffReporter
Ooh, that's cold.
Students on Facebook, Twit-
ter and other social media

sites could not have missed the
droves of people pouring buck-
ets of ice water on their heads
this past month in an unprec-
edented effort to raise funds
and awareness for amyotrophic
lateral sclerosis, also known as
Lou Gehrig's Disease. Dona-
tions to the ALS Association
have topped $100 million since
the tce Bucket Challenge began,
and they just keep coming.

At the end of August, the
University's A. Alfred Taub-
man Medical Research Insti-
tute accepted the challenge,
as Neurology Prof. Eva Feld-
man, director of the Institute
,and a long-time leader of ALS
research, took the plunge.
ALS is a neurodegenerative
disease that affects the motor
-neurons of the brain and spi-
nal cord. According to the ALS

Association, the disease affects
roughly 30,000 Americans at
any given time. Currently, there
is no known method of revers-
ing or stopping the progression
of the disease. Having worked
with ALS for more than 25
years, Feldman said it was natu-
ral that she would participate in
the Ice Bucket Challenge.

University alum Tom Hayden, a
leading activist during the 1960s,
a founding member of Students for
a Democratic Society and primary
drafter of the 1962 Port Huron
Statement. Now students will be
able to study his experience first-
hand, with his donation of 120
boxes of material, including his FBI
file, to the University.
Some of Hayden's material
includes photographs, notebooks
Vietnam in the 1960s and his exten-
sive FBI file with details of his past
whereabouts. Hayden and his ex-
wife and folk singer Joan Baez sued
the government for illegal surveil-
lance to retrieve these documents.

Decision comes
after debate and
Daily StaffReporter
The Central Student Govern-
ment has a new vice president.
On Tuesday, CSG Assembly

members heard about her past
involvement with student gov-
ernment, other prominent stu-
dent organizations and record
of community service. They
learned that if she were a candy,
she would be a Reese's Cup.
And so, after debate, LSA
senior Emily Lustig was voted
into the vice president position
with 30 voting in favor, nine
abstaining and one opposing her

ascension to the position.
CSG's first meeting came in
the wake of LSA junior Meagan
Shokar's resignation last week,
and subsequently led to some
contention regarding her ulti-
mate successor.
Despite a strong majority vote
in Lustig's favor, some CSG rep-
resentatives felt the selection was
conducted in 'awaythat sacrificed
