assembly approve the referendum,
the commission would become de-
funct until the November election.
Assembly members have differ-
ent opinions on the Conservative
"We (CC) see the new assembly
as a big step toward gaining MSA's
credibility back. We've promised
MSA reform and everyone's been
clamoring for it. It will start with
Tuesday's meeting," said LSA Rep.
"The new assembly will be dis-
tinctly different from the old.
There won't be any more foreign3
fact-finding trips or paying for
Calvin and Hobbe
chalker's legal fees or foreign pol-
icy statements," White added.
Rackham Rep. Jeff Hinte who
ran with the Common Sense party is
opposed to the abolition of any of
MSA's commissions or committees.
He also foresees possible problems
in dealing with the new executive
"In my opinion, all the commis-
sions and committees which are set
up should stand, be funded, and
given the support that they need.
There may indeed be problems with
people on the assembly who have
more of a conservative bent than I.
In the past these people have demon-
strated their hostility to my politi-
cal views and actions," Hinte said.
"I only hope thatas an assembly
we're able to effectively promote
the interests of students which of-
ten means taking the (University)
administration to task," Hinte
It has been rumored that former
CC assembly members and sympa-
thizers will come to the meetings
to express their dissatisfaction with
the outgoing administration.
"I have heard that there will be
some CC alumni who will come to
gloat. I don't condone it or not con-
done it. I would be surprised if there
were any disruptions at the meeting.
There's no reason for it," Green said.
However, Green said he will not

tration when he chairs the second

on previous administrations. It's the
time for looking ahead to what we

low-fat diet for children
WASHINGTON (AP) - The
government recommended for the
first time yesterday that children
join adults in following a low-fat,
low-cholesterol diet, saying it
could reduce their risk of heart
disease later in life.
"This is the major cause of
death in adults in this country and
we should not miss the opportunity
to prevent the disease from begin-
ning in children," said Dr. Ronald
Lauer, chairperson of the expert
panel that drafted the recommen-
The guidelines for youngsters
are the same as those already rec-
ommended for adults. They call for
limiting saturated fatty acids to 10
percent of calories, limiting fat in-
take to no more than 30 percent of
calories and holding cholesterol to
300 milligrams a day.
The panel also recommended
that children from families with a
history of premature heart disease
or high cholesterol have their
blood cholesterol levels tested.
That would result in testing
about 25 percent of children and
adolescents, or about 14 million
youngsters. About half of those
tested would need follow-up atten-
tion, mainly through special diets,
the panel said.

youngsters to eat right can be

WASHINGTON (AP) - A
free-trade agreement with Mexico
could produce a net gain of more
than 6,300 non-farming jobs in
Michigan - more than in any
other state - by the turn of the
century, a study says.
Critics have warned that the
proposed pact would unleash a
stream of U.S. manufacturing com-
panies across the border in search
of cheap labor. The United Auto
of jobs for
Workers opposes an agreement,
fearing it would eliminate well-
paid automaking jobs.
But Clopper Almon, an eco-
nomics professor at the University
of Maryland who conducted the
study, said an agreement would
boost demand for U.S. products in
Mexico, thereby creating more
manufacturing jobs than would be
lost through company relocation.

And no one even suggested that

"The message of this report ... is*
a message of moderation. It is no
a message of 'Never eat certaid

coordinator of the National
Cholesterol Education Program.
"It's a matter of making the entire

During council communica-
tions, Hunter requested a council
committee to review a December
incident involving the macing of
University students in South
Quad by Ann Arbor police.
"We intend to cooperate with
the University to investigate the
incident," Hunter said.
In addition, Councilmember
Mark Ouimet (R-Fourth Ward)
asked Brater how the lack of city
police involvment in the Hash
Bash will affect city-University
"One of my concerns is to get
together some understanding be-
tween the University and the city
about what obligations will be
expected of Ann Arbor police,"
Brater said. "It is very serious
that we do not have a clear con-
tract with the University."
Hunter said the city does not
have a contract providing police
services for the University.

he's trying to add lighter touch to

First-year Law student Lauren

opinion. "For the most part, I think
that a lot of the issues people

maybe people will sit down and
take the time to determine what
their particular stance is."
