Michael Chiado, a member ofIn Defense

The protesters marched from down-

central campus, and finally staged a pro-
test at President James J. Duderstadt's
South University Avenue home.
The procession then returned back

The protest was generally low-key
and unobtrusive, as most marchers
handed out literature and carried signs.
Though a few chanted slogans, most
were careful not to obstruct traffic or
cause a disturbance.
"They should be louder. They're not
getting noticed, so they should make
more noise." said Jeff Kurson, an LSA
Chiado said the march was intended
simply to be visible, not to be a nuisance.
"The main goal," he said, "is to pass out
these 2,000 fliers."
Though the protest was part of World
Laboratory Animal Liberation Week, no
efforts were made by the marchers to free
any of the thousands of animals kept in the
University's 350 animal testing rooms.
Howard G. Rush, the assistant dir
tor of the University laboratory medicint
unit said the organization had a "politica
agenda - to stop all animal research. We
take very good care of these animals."

Students Against the Code, a coali-

ants' Union attorney, spoke at the rally,
denouncing the "evil" of the code.

friendly face, but a closer one reveals a
malignant one," Rose said.
Immediately following the rally, th
