"It's like five football Saturdays put
together in four days," said Shary Brown,
executive director of the Street Art Fair,
which will take place on South University
Ave, East University Ave and Church
The Street Art Fair is the oldest of the
Art Fairs being held this week. It started
42 years ago as an attraction during the
Summer Bargain Days, a series of side-
walk sales in Ann Arbor. The event
became an immediate attraction and has
"It turned into a resounding suc-
cess," Brown said.
Joining the Street Art fair are the State
Street Art Fair and the Summer Art Fair.
The State Street Art Fair is in its 34th year
and the Summer Art Fair is in its 31st.
The State Street Fair covers the streets

years of hosting the Art Fair, the
City of Ann Arbor has been able to
solve some of the traffic problems.
The Ann Arbor Transportation Author-
ity is advertising free parking at Briar-
wood Mall and Pioneer High School.
Shuttle busses will be assigned to go
to and from the parking lots and the
Art Fairs. The Art Fair Trolley will be

Stucchi's on South University, said
that business during the Art Fair
quadruples the business done on an
"Normally we only have two people
working on an average day. We have six
people working during a shift during the
Art Fair," Golowesky said.
"It's very hectic. A clothing store
isn't going to do as much. More
people are interested in the art than
they are in clothes. But if it's a hot
day, and you walk by an ice cream
store, it's a different story," she
The Art Fairs display the creations
of more than 1,000 artists.
Last year, the Street Art Fair received
top honors from the Sunshine Artist
Magazine and the National Association
of Independent Artists for being the num-
ber one fine art fair in the country.
Weather during the Art Fair is expect-
ed to average 86 degrees, only a couple
degrees above average. Thunderstorms
are predicted on Wednesday.

One possibility for additional fitnds
during the fiscal year is a repeal of the
tuition tax credit program, which
awards tax credits to students and their
parents who pay tuition at colleges that
keep their tuition increases under the
level of inflation. Such a repeal would
likely allow an additional 1.5 percent
increase in higher education funding.
Only students who attend Lake
Superior University and some commu-
nity colleges qualified for the tax cred-
its last year.
Senate Higher Education Subcom-
mittee Chairman John Schwarz vowed
to work to repeal the system as the Leg-
islature takes its summer recess.
Schwarz (R-Battle Creek), said he
would try to gather up votes for such a
repeal when the Legislature recon-
He believes there are enough votes in
the Senate for such a repeal, but not
enough in the House.
Another of the conferees, Rep.
Michael Switalski (D-Roseville) said
the reason the conference committee's
bill did not recommend a repeal was
that it would have forced the House to
reject the bill. He did not, however, rule
out the Legislature's taking up the issue
of a possible repeal in the fall.
"Anything's possible, but we've cer-
tainly got an uphill struggle. If it was
even close, I think we may have contin-
ued to work and try to do something
McManus, however, believes that the
pro-repeal forces in the 38-membe,4
Senate are three to four votes short.
Schwarz had also proposed taking
$40 million -in surplus dollars from the
MEAP Merit Scholarship Trust to no
The committee's compromise bill
now moves to the floors of the House
and Senate, where it is expected to be
approved and then sent to the governor,
who supports a repeal of the tuition tax
credit for final approval.

Jackie Livesay said her daughter
enjoyed singing in the choir and per-
forming in productions, including
"HMS Pinafore." Ellen Livesay sang
in the chorus of the University of
Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Soci-
"She was quite outgoing and vivacious
and outspoken," Jackie Livesay said.
Ellen Livesay, who grew up in Jack-
son, enjoyed attending the University,
where she studied music education. Her
sister Jennifer is also a student.
"She was so passionate about music in
general;" said Rob Stow, one of the direc-
tors of "HMS Pinafore." "She was pretty
much one of the liveliest people ... If
there is one thing that could describe her,
it wouldbe humor."
"She had so much to offer in terms of
enriching everyone's life," he added. "We
had a lot of fun working together. I was
looking forward to doing more with her,
so I'm sad she won'tbe with us"

"We think affirmative action is nee-
essary to ... promote a diversity of
voices and experiences on campuses
across the country," Jenkins said.
The University's defense in two law-
suits challenging its admissions policies
in the College of Literature, Science a
the Arts and the Law School hav
stressed the benefits of a diverse campus
for the entire community, but has not
included the use of race-conscious
admissions to correct past wrongs.
"One of the reasons why we're sup-
porting the University is we think it has
done a particularly good job, not only of
defending affirmative action ... but also
of demonstrating through concrete
research ... the benefits diversity and
affirmative action provide," Jenkins saiy
