the MSA administration, she faults
the way the executive officers push
through their political agenda. "The
way the current (MSA) administra-
tion has chose to play out politics
has created some problems," Swain
said.
Van Valey acknowledges her po-
litical biases but said they have not
played a role in addressing students'
concerns and problems. "I have poli-
tics and everyone knows that. The
notion I should be objective is crazy.
If you look at my administration I
have not denied any student group
funding or recognition.
"The (University) administra-
tion's harsh response has been par-
ticular to my administration," she
argued.
Both sides have suggested alterna-
tives in the forms of governing
structures.
In the December minutes of the
Provost's Administrative Group
meeting, suggestions were made re-
garding how to increase communica-
tion between students and the admin-
istration - particularly regarding the
nature of student representation.

would be imperative that the stu-
dents be perceived as being legiti-
mate by other students."
The "kitchen" cabinet was not
advocated as a substitute for MSA,
Swain said.
She also stressed the Provost's
group saw student perception of ac-
tion as an important part of the com-
munication process.
"Part of it is a perception. The
President has gone to classes and in-
teracts with students - very little of
which gets credited when people say
the administration does not talk to
students," Swain said.

"We should have student re-
gents," Van Valey said. "The Uni-
versity Council (a policy-making
body consisting of students, admin
istration, and staff) must be rein:-
stated."
The University Council was
abolished last year by the University
Board of Regents, who believed the
council had failed to accomplish any-
thing concrete.
Van Valey said she does not see
the state of student-administration
communications changing soon. She:
added that student leaders from other
campuses perceive the University as

communication with elected student

One proposal envisioned the cre-
ation of a special committee of stu-
dent leaders, separate from MSA, to
advise the administration.
According to the minutes, "The
University needs one visible recog-
nized body of student representatives
to offset the perception that we do
not talk to students .... Such a
group... could serve as a 'kitchen'
cabinet of students who have real au-
thority on campus. However, it

"I don't see it as PR. Interaction
with students needs to be known.
We need to make it known that we
make an effort to try to talk with
students," Swain said.
Swain said she thought that such
a "kitchen" cabinet group would be
beneficial to supplement the current
student governments and to increase
student input in University decision
making.
Van Valey had only criticism for
the "kitchen cabinet" concept. "MSA
should be recognized by the adminis-
tration," she said. "They should
come to us for students' representa-
tives."
Van Valey also has a set of pro-
posals which she said could achieve
better student-administration com-
munication.

communication as we do. U of MiS
rumored to be horrible," she said.
She pointed to Brown University as,
a campus in which students, admin,
istrators and staff put together a hay
rassment policy.
However, the administration is4
optimistic about improved commu-
nication in the future. Swain com-
plemented MSA on its filling of
student seats for administration advi- 0
sory committees.
"MSA should be applauded for
filling the student member slots on
advisory commissions. If that con-
tinues then I think input and com-
munication with students will imm-
prove," Swain said.

CONTEST
Continued from page 1
Advertisers portray both men
and women in a sexist manner, but
the problem of violence against men
is not nearly as serious, Cain said.
According to FBI statistics, while
one in three women will be raped,
only one in 10 men will be raped.
Contest organizers said advertis-
ers stereotype women into roles of
subordination and create unattain-
able standards of beauty. The adver-
tisements also objectify and portray
violence against women, they said.
These advertising tools con-
tribute to the violence against
women by making abuse easier to ac-
cept, Cain said.
"Once they're exposed and see
the techniques that these advertisers
use, it makes it really obvious the
next time I see ads," Cain said.
"Some of the ads are so obvious it
almost makes you sick."
SAPAC Director Julie Steiner
concurred that increased awareness
does effect change. She specifically
pointed to the decreased use of sex-
ism in fraternity rush posters.
"Locally I think we've seen
quite a bit of change. (In the past)
most of the local ads that got nomi-
nated were rush posters for frater-

"Because GEO members are in
the public sector they are not al-

said.

nities. They were really gross;"
Steiner said. "That continued for'a
while, but that aspect has really o
died down a lot. It's interesting to
note how much more aware of this
issue people are."
Although many of the ads bla-
tantly use sexism, others are more
subtle, Cain said.
He described a Loreal advertise-
ment which shows a woman holding
up a lipstick container to her mouth,
with the words 'When it feels good, -
you want it to last.' Additionally, 0
the lighting in the ad shows a streak
across her mouth, he said.
"It's very phallic and it could
very well be a subliminal message.
It's not even subliminal to me any-
more," Cain said. "Every time I
look at the ad I just laugh."
An advertisement from the
Spiegel Catalogue shows a woman
backed against a wall with the in=
scription "Made to Order" wrapped
around her body.
"That's probably one of the
most offensive to me - it's not
only offensive to women, but espe-
cially Black women," Cain said,
adding that it portrayed the objecti-
fication of women.

example of how the conflict was
resolved through outside mediators.
But GEO president Chris Rober-
son said even though strikes are ille-
gal they still occur.
GEO members will vote on
whether or not to have a one-day0
work stoppage at the membership
meeting tomorrow night. Negotia-
tions continue on Wednesday night.
