Duderstadt said yesterday at
5:30 p.m. that he had received
around 200 messages. It is easy to
identify "mass mailings" and read
one and delete them he said.
Kaufman stressed the impor-

tance of changing the bylaw be-
cause of its legal ramifications.
"(Changing the bylaw) would in-
crease the legal leverage of gay
people who have been discrimi-
nated against in a far more direct
way than a presidential policy,"
Kaufman said.
New Queer Agenda members
said they were satisfied with the
support they received from the
University body. "We have been
getting support from a real cross
section... from every minority and
majority," DeLaurier said.

Brett White, another MSA rep-

close to deciding on a candidate.
"We're all almost decided. (The
nominee is) preliminarily chosen,"
he said.
Rackham representative Tim
Darr said the person chosen is less
important than the party as a
whole. "Our strength is not in any

provide basic services in a reason-

Klimaczewski suggested that a
Democrat elected to the second
ward could tilt the balance of
power. "This Republican-ruled

has, that the separatist government
of Lithuania has trampled on the
rights of the non-Lithuanian minor-

negotiate for its independence and
has driven political moderates out@

elected Lithuanian leadership.
One U.S. analyst said, "There is
no doubt that there's been a shift
toward reliance on the KGB, the
military-industrial complex and the
army. Gorbachev is influenced by@
them, but he may be using them,
