Candidates
to attend
gay forum
by Beth Echlin
gaily Staff Reporter
A forum to discuss issuesrelated to
lesbians and gay men for the 52nd and
53rd districts of Ann Arbor has been
scheduled for Wednesday, July 22 in
the Henderson Room of the Michigan
League.
The forum, which is sponsored by
theGayLiberationFrontandtheMichi-
gan Lesbian Gay Democratic Caucus
(MLGDC), is for the eight Democratic
candidates of the two districts.
One of the main goals of the forum
is to let the candidates know that the
lesbian/gay/bisexual community does
exist and does vote.
Alain Reed, co-executive director
of the MLGDC and recognized liaison
between lesbians and gays and the
Democratic Party, is especially con-
cerned with the issue of discrimination
against gays and lesbians.
'Gay rights are non-existent and
discrimination doesoccur. Thishas got
to stop,' Reed said.
LynnRivers,Democraticcandidate
for the 53rd district, said constituents
are sponsoring the forum to discover
candidates' feeling on issues relating to
the gay and bisexual community. "Ev-
eryone is coming together to sort out
what the candidates are like and what A novel
they support," Rivers said. The stacks of 1

Students find A2
cool in the summer

by Jacquelyn Bullerman
Although about two-thirds of the
studentpopulationleave Ann Arbor for
the summer, 10,000 students do stay,
for threemainreasons:education,work
and play.
Cathy Reed-Maxfield,anLSAguid-
ancecounselor,saidthatwhilestudents
attend Spring and Sumner terms for a
variety ofreasons,thereseemtobe five
common ones. They range fromneed-
ing to repeat classes that students may
have done poorly in the first time to
catching up on lost credit hours.
Some students stay Spring term to
get ahead in credits, which will allow
them to graduate early. Others stay to
concentrate on a class that they are
concemedaboutortospreadoutclasses
to lighten future course loads.
"Science-oriented-curiculum-class
people often do not want to stack up
classes during a regular semester,"
Reed-Maxfield said.
She also said she believes many
people take a class as an excuse to
remain in Ann Arbor. There are both
pros and cons to taking classes in the
summer, Reed-Maxfield said.
'The atmosphere is more relaxed
and personable which is good. But the
classes move quicker and are more
intense, making iteasier togethbehind,"
she said. "Spring/ Summer work very
well for some, and for others it is a
downer",
Mistakenlybelieving they willhave
notroublefindingasummerjobin Ann
Arbor, hundreds of students stick
around. Vickie Crupper, coordinator

forUniversitystudentemployment,said
that while those with work-study grants
have no problem finding work, others
may find the job market "very tight."
Yet with the possibility of doing
something career-relatedandleasesthat
extend through the summer months,
many students decidetotry theirluckin
Ann Arbor. Engineering senior Samir
Chowdhury said, "I am advancing my
career with research experience, mak-
ing money, and I havea one year lease
anyway, so why not?"
Crupper said she feels many stu-
dents stay not only for the job market
possibilities,butbecausetheyenjoy the
campus when itismorerelaxed."Rents
are lower, town is less crowded and
Ann Arbor is a real pleasant place to
stay during summer," she said.
Crupperadded,"Manystudentsstay
due to past employment that will carry
over. So for them to stay rather than go
home and start the job search all over
again is less economical."
Withlesshecticsummerschedules,
students have the opportunity to take
advantageofnumerousactivitiesaround
town that they are too busy to enjoy
during theregular schoolyear.Summer
presents itself as an excellent time to
hang out on the Diag, explore the Arb
and bask in the sun.
LSA junior Alex Heath stayed be-
cause she had little to do in her home
town of Flint. "All my friends are in
Ann Arbor," she said. "I can't imagine
living by someone else's rules again
after living on my own. I like Ann
Arbor."
