Woman killed during
hit-and-run accident

by Jesse Snyder
Daily Staff Reporter
An unidentified woman was killed near
the intersection of State and East
Washington in a hit-and-run accident next to
the Frieze Building around 7:30 last night.
The victim, possibly a University student,
was jogging across East Washington between
the Frieze Building and Olga's when she was
struck by the automobile, witnesses said.
"I heard a noise and saw the body fly five
or six feet up in the air," said an EMU
student who was at the scene. The victim
; was a jogging female who fits all of the
descriptions of a student.'
Ann Arbor resident Robert Grunawalt,
who also witnessed the accident, said the car
may have run a red light.
"I didn't really see that the car struck a
person until after the body went up in the
air," he said. Grunawalt was not able to
describe the automobile involved.
"The car ran the stopping light," said an
Ann Arbor man who declined to be
identified. "The person was running
.diagonally from across the street and was
dressed darkly. The car hit her, and people
,came running from all directions," he said.

Lt. John Zahn of the Ann Arbor Fire
Department, who was first on the scene, said
the victim was in cardiac arrest when they
"We started CPR, but when the Ann
Arbor Police got here we cancelled it," said
another firefighter.
Police sealed off the accident area, trying
to reconstruct the crime scene. Using
floodlights, they searched for evidence of
paint and glass in the rain.
The woman, wearing sweatpants and
running shoes, was not carrying any
identification. She may have been wearing a
walkman, which was found next to her.
Police refused to comment on the accident
or the identification of the victim, pending an
investigation and informing of next-of-kin.
Police spokesperson Capt. Roderick said
that the identification of victims usually
involves matching the individual with
missing persons reports.
"We take every step we can to determine
who it is, but at this point that's all we can
do," he said.

ble three-day work stoppage for

"work stoppage" which would be
defined as cancelling classes for

event planned by GEO.
GEO also discussed distributing

"The University and the state
code not
to affect
'U' code
by Sarah Schweitzer
Daily Administration Reporter
Adminstration officials said
yesterday that Eastern Michigan
University's (EMU) decision to
broaden their student conduct code
to include a ban on discriminatory
behavior will have little effect on
the the University's current interim
student harassment policy.
The EMU Board of Regents
voted on March 27 to add an
amendment to their Code of Student
Conduct to prohibit discriminatory
acts which "are intended to insult
an individual on the basis of race,
ethnicity, gender, religion or creed,
age, handicap, or sexual
Like EMU's new policy, the
University's anti-discrimination
policy also outlaws discrimination
on the basis of race, ethnicity, reli-
gion, sex, sexual orientation, creed,
and handicap.
Unlike EMU, however, this
University's student harassment
policy remains an interim one.
The current interim policy was
drafted in September 1989 after the
the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the
University's first policy on harass-
ment unconstitutional due to the re-
straint on free speech which it
Shirley Clarkson, special assis-
tant to University President James
Duderstadt, said EMU's action will
probably not prompt any change in
the current University policy.
Clarkson said Duderstadt is
pleased with the interim status of
the policy since it allows for
changes be made as they are needed.
"The fact that it is interim
doesn't take away from its
strength," Clarkson said.
Ultimately, the President hopes
enough progess is made through ed-
ucation that a permanentbanti-ha-
rassment policy will never be neces-
sary, she added.
General Counsel Elsa Cole
agreed with Clarkson that
Duderstadt favors keeping the in-
terim policy in place until educa-
tional provisions are given a chance
to work.
Cole said, however, that before

the work stoppage they would not
mediate. The team felt we had to go
into mediation," he said. "We fig-
ured we could give the pledge and
the steering committee could ratify
it later."
Roberson also said the current
GEO contract expires tonight at
midnight so TAs will be working
Monday without a contract.
Roberson said the main implica-

will be that the University can
choose not to implement the current
TA grievance policy.
However, he said striking with-
out a contract could be an advantage.
"Striking is illegal, but in the
eyes of the administrative judges it
is less illegal without a contract."
The next membership meeting
will be held on April 16.

The 12-member Safety and
Security Advisory Committee is
still in the stages of organizing and
gathering information after three
meetings, said its chair,
Architecture Prof. James Snyder.
The committee was formed in
February and is composed of four
students, four staff members, and
four faculty members.
The committee is charged by the
Provost Gilbert Whitaker with
monitoring the implementation of
of the twelve recommendations
made last March by the
University's Task Force on Campus
and Safety. Among the recommen-
dations made by the committee were
improved lighting, expanded walk-
ing services, and deputization of
campus security officers.
Snyder said that while the com-
mittee has made progress, it is still
focusing primarily on organizing,
getting updates on the implementa
tion of the task force's recommen-
dations, and establishing procedures
for accepting suggestions and
No recommendations have been
made yet to the Provost.
Additionally, Snyder said the
committee has devoted time to de-
ciding on which issues the group
should focus.
Issues of concern include:
the training of the deputized
crime and violence which oc-
curs off campus;
increasing student involve-
ment in all safety programs, and;
decreasing reliance on security
Snyder said that tentatively next
week the committee will release in-
formation to the media about how
students can communicate with the
committee members through MTS,
mail or appointment. It will also
name dates for open meetings.
Snyder said the committee will
meet periodically throughout te
Members of the committee re-
fused to comment since they had
earlier agreed not talk to the pres
on an individual basis for fear of
dispelling mixed information.

Group discusses
post-war problems

by Shalini Patel
Daily Staff Reporter
People of Color Against War
and Racism sponsored a forum last
night, the 23rd anniversary of the
assasination of Dr. Martin Luther
King, to discuss the aftermath of the
Gulf War at home and in the Middle
As troops continue to return, the
organization has refocused its ef-
forts to concentrate on the
"occupying forces that exist not
only abroad but in the U.S.," said
Law student Lisa Crooms. "We
need to look at the police brutality
not only here, but the police brutal-
ity against the people of Iraq if you
look at the army as a glorified po-
lice force."
Victims of War, a group sending
medical relief to Iraq, began the fo-

ently linked," said law student and
member of the Palestine Solidarity
Committee Karima Bennoune. She
posed the question, "If invading an-
other is wrong, why did we invade
Panama, Grenada, and Iraq?"
President Diane Bernard of the
Detroit Welfare Rights
Organization addressed the "war be-
ing waged on the poor in the state of
Michigan." She said this war is just
as, if not more, diabolical as the
Gulf War.
"We're trying to raise healthy
children, healthy families in an un-
healthy society," she added.
People of Color Against War
and Racism was formed prior to the
Gulf War to protest American in-
tervention in the Middle East and
racism at home.
