bill to benefit students, community

Iraq's ambassador to the United
Nations, Abdul Amir al-Anbari, said
yesterday that all remaining allied
prisoners could be freed as early as
today.
"It's a matter of what facilities
will allow. Otherwise definitely all
of them, and I emphasize all of
them, American, British and other
members, will be repatriated through
the (Red Cross) in Baghdad either
tomorrow or the day after
tomorrow," al-Anbari said.
CBS News quoted al-Anbari as
saying the prisoners would be freed
by this morning.
Allied commander Gen. Norman
Schwarzkopf, after Sunday's cease-
fire negotiations with Iraqi military
leaders, said the Iraqis had come "to
discuss and cooperate with a positive
attitude."
If the atmosphere is maintained,
the American general said, "We are
well on our way to a lasting peace."
He said the Iraqis agreed to key
allied demands, including help in
locating land mines in Kuwait and
sea mines in the Persian Gulf. Op-
erations to remove the mines will
begin immediately, Schwarzkopf
said.
The Iraqis also agreed to supply
details on any individuals who died
in their custody and to return any
remains. Schwarzkopf did not
indicate whether the Iraqis ac-
knowledged any deaths or remains in
their custody.
In addition, the Iraqi officers
agreed to an arrangement that will
separate the forces in southern Iraq to
avoid further skirmishes.
He said the release of prisoners,
including more than 100,000 Iraqis
captured by allied forces and now in
Saudi camps, would be done under
auspices of the International
Committee of the Red Cross.

Non-profit community service
organizations would be offered an
expanded, cost-free work force un-
der a work-study bill now making
its way through the state
legislature.
The measure would also benefit
university students statewide by
providing expanded work-study op-
portunities outside the university.
"It adds new kinds of employ-
ment opportunities for people on
work-study," said Sen. Debbie
Stavenow (D-Ingham), sponsor of
the Senate bill.
Rep's
proposal
criticizes
regents
by Jay Garcia
Daily MSA Reporter
Lately, student communication
with the University administration
and University Board of Regents
has become a topic of some de-
bate over at the Michigan Student
Assembly's (MSA) office in the
Union. The debate will continue
when MSA votes on a new resolu-
tion tonight.
The resolution is titled "New
Regents" after the students who
acted as regental imposters and
held their own open public com-
ments session last month in place
of the scheduled session. The reso-
lution is being sponsored by Rack-
ham representative and Students
Rights Commission Chair Corey
Dolgon. It calls for:
student dialogue with admin-
istrators and the regents in an open
meeting;
support of the "New Re-
gents" efforts to require the regents
and administration to become ac-
countable to students;
"the entire student body and
University community to register
their complaints with the regents
for their unresponsiveness and un-
accountability." and:

The bill was introduced in the
Senate last Thursday and is sched-
uled to be introduced in the House
of Representatives today.
The current work-study program
has two branches - private sector
employment, funded 50 percent by
the state, and non-profit organiza-
tions, funded 80 percent by the
state. If passed, the bill would add
a third category for non-profit
community service organizations.
Salaries for students employed by
these organizations would be com-
pletely state-funded.
Rep. Lynn Jondahl (D-Oke-

mos), the House sponsor of the
bill, said no new funds will be
needed for the new program. Jon-
dahl explained that money allo-
cated for the work-study program
has been consistently underutilized
in the past.
"For the past several years, the
schools have not expended all of
the money in that fund," Jondahl
said. "Maybe students are instead
using loan or grant money."
The Ann Arbor Arts Council is
one community service organiza-
tion that would benefit from the
bill's passage.

"We would probably use a
larger pool of work-study students
if they were free," said Director of
Operations Susan Monaghan. The
Arts Council currently employs
five University students under the
work-study program. Monaghan
said the students work mainly as"
administrative supporters, assisting
in educational programs and work-
shops for children.
Charles Griffith, from the Ecol-
ogy Center of Ann Arbor, also sup-
ported the bill.
"Even paying your 20 percent
of costs is too much for some non-

profit organizations with limited
funds," Griffiths said.
The Ecological center now em-
ploys several work-study students,
Griffiths said. If the bill is passed,
he said the center would probably
be able to afford employing even
more students.
Jondahl introduced an identical
bill in the House last year, but it
stalled in a Senate committee at
the end of the session while the'
legislature was bogged down with
budget issues.
"The Senate at that point was

ABC news anchor chosen
for LSA commencement

by Henry Goldblatt
Daily Administration Reporter
Frequent viewers of ABC news
will see a familiar face behind the
speaker's podium at the Univer-
sity's 1991 LSA spring com-
mencement.
The Commencement Commit-
tee selected Carole Simpson -
anchor of the Saturday ABC World
News Tonight and correspondent
- as the keynote speaker at the
ceremony.
Committee members said their
primary criteria in choosing a
speaker was finding a prominent,
articulate, LSA graduate. Simpson
is a 1962 University graduate with
a Bachelor of Arts.
"We wanted to make sure the
speaker would be someone a lot of
students would know, so that the
commencement would be interest-
ing for them," said LSA Events

Manager and Commencement
Committee member Wendy
Keeny. "We wanted someone who
would have something to say that's
meaningful to students."
'We wanted someone
who would have
something to say
that's meaningful to
students'
- Wendy Keeny
Committee member
Commencement committee
members said they wanted a
woman and minority member as
the keynote speaker at the exer-
cises because last year's speaker,
Lawrence Kasdan, was male.
Simpson is African American.
Moreover, the committee chose

Simpson because of her connec-
tion and role in reporting the daily
news. Committee members said
they felt she could bring a primary,
personal perspective to current
events.
"Because of the world situation
being critical, the person had to
have an understanding (of world
events) and know what is happen-
ing in a primary way," said Com-
mencement Committee member
Marian Chu Hallada.
Simpson beat out six candi-
dates, including James Earl Jones,
actress Christine Lahti, and Car-
men Harlan, news anchor for the
Detroit NBC affiliate.
Keeney said Jones was not cho-
sen because he does not enjoy
public speaking. The committee
felt the other two candidates were
not as well-known nationally as
Simpson, she added.
