State rep. pushes for inclusion

State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-
Ann Arbor) said he was plan-
ning to introduce a bill early in
1986 to provide at least one seat
for students on each of the gov-
erning boards for state universi-
ties.
The proposal aligned with a
then-ongoing push by Michi-
gan Student Assembly president
Paul Josephson to guarantee
student representation on the
University's Board of Regents.
Bullard refused to speculate
about the bill's chances, but he
did acknowledge that there was
a chance it would face difficul-
ties; the change would require
an amendment to the state's
constitution.
Bullard said it was "doubtful

the plan will sweep the coun-
try" because of opposition from
universities.
20years ago this week
(Dec.6v1994)
A mass e-mail message
described as "very racist" by
Randy Frank, Computer Aided
Engineering Network director,
was sent to the roughly 10,000
Engineering students on the
CAEN listserv.
The message asserted that
the federal government gives
money to groups including indi-
viduals with low IQs, young
parents, "homosexual 'perfor-
mance artists"' and Russian
refugees.

It was sent from the e-mail
address of a student at the Uni-
versity of Texas at Austin, but
UT officials said the message
was a result of hacking.
"It's not a matter of anyone
here doing anything suspi-
cious," said Charles Warlick,
director of the Computation
Center at UT.
CAEN Administrative Man-
ager Jack Love said messages
like the one sent out were not
uncommon.
"Unfortunately, these things
have gotten common enough
that people are pretty blas6
about it," Love said. "But we're
disgusted by this behavior."

went for a walk, dressed in black

"We're very concerned that
he's not himself and that he

She said after each concussion
he followed trainers' instructions
and received proper care but "his

She said he was without his

Coach Urban Meyer described
Karageorge as a hard worker and

MATILDE CAMPODONICO/AP
Tabard Vazquez, presidential candidate for the ruling Broad Front party, celebrates in Montevideo, Uruguay on Sunday.
Left-leaning presidential
candidate wins in Uruguay

Tabare Vazquez
recognized for
legalizing same-
sex marriage
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay
(AP) - Ruling party candidate
Tabare Vazquez easily won Uru-
guay's presidential election on
Sunday, returning to power a left-
leaning coalition that has legal-
ized gay marriage and moved to
create the world's first state-run
marijuana marketplace.
The runoff vote had drawn
international attention because.-
Vazquez's rival, center-right
candidate Luis Lacalle Pou, had
promised to undo much of the
plan to put the government in
charge of regulating the produc-
tion, distribution and sale of mar-
ijuana on a nationwide scale.
Lacalle Pou, 41, said late Sun-
day that he had called Vazquez
to concede and "wish him great
success" after three exit polls
showed him losing by a more
than 10-percentage point margin,
a defeat seen as saving the pot
plan from possible extinction.
Vazquez, a 74-year-old oncolo-
gist who was president from

2005-2010, immediately called
on the opposition to join him in
a national accord to deal with
the key issues of public security,
health and education.
"I want to be able to count on
all Uruguayans, but not so that
they follow me but so that they
guide me, accompany me," said
Vazquez in his victory speech.
Sunday's win marked a rever-
sal of roles for Vazquez, who
shook up Uruguayan politics
when he became president his
first time, peacefully ending 170
years of two-party dominance. In
his first presidential campaign,
Vazquez promised changes that
would "shake the roots of the
trees." But he governed as a rela-
tively cautious moderate, avoid-
ing the constitutional changes
and polarization that have shak-
en countries such as Venezuela.
His popularity on leaving
office paved the way for the
election of his successor, cur-
rent President Jose Mujica, a
former guerrilla known for his
humble lifestyle and straight talk.
Both men belong to the Broad
Front coalition, which has been
in power for a decade and has
passed laws backing same-sex
marriage, marijuana and other
social issues.

This time around, Mujica's
popularity and a strong econo-
my helped propel Vazquez. into
office, where he is now seen as
the candidate of continuity, notof
change.
Javier Silva, an operator at
a state electrical plant, said he
voted for Vazquez because he
thinks the country is doing well.
"The economy is rising. The
country isn't anything like it was
10 or 20 years ago, when it was in
decline," said the 35-year-old.
Monica Centurion, a 51-year-
old official at a state hospital, said
she backed Lacalle Pou because
she worried about crime.
"It was for his proposals, espe-
cially to improve public security,
which is the principal issue," she
said describing why she voted for
him.
Lacalle Pou is the son of anoth-
er ex-president, Luis Alberto
Lacalle Herrera, who governed
from 1990 to 1995.
During his campaign, he criti-
cized the marijuana plan, saying
he would shut down the state-
run pot market, while allowing
domestic cultivation of the plant.
Polls show that despite its inter-
national popularity, most Uru-
guayan oppose the marijuana
laws and want them repealed.
