The University is hoping private
donations will finance $20 million
of renovations slated for Hill
Auditorium.
The renovations - which will
range from installing a new roof
and central air conditioning to ex-
panding the backstage area - came
in response to complaints by per-
formers who disliked the backstage
facilities and summer patrons who
were uncomfortable in the audito-
rium, said University Planner
Frederick Mayer.
"Hill Auditorium is a beautiful
concert hall, but it's almost 80
years old," Mayer said. "A lot has
changed in 80 years, and there's been
a lot of wear and tear inside and out-
side the building."
Mayer added that there hasn't
been a major renovation to Hill
since it opened in 1912.
The University's Board of

Regents approved the master plan
for upgrading and renovating the
auditorium last fall. Work will be-
gin only when funds, to be raised
through private donations, are avail-
able.
Morris Risenhoover, assistant to
the dean of the School of Music, said
the renovation project will be un-
derwritten with money collected
through -a capital improvements
fundraiser.
"What can be done to the build-
ing depends on how much money can
be collected from the fundraiser
which is yet to begin," Risenhoover
added.
Mayer said private donations are
necessary because the University has
lacked the funds necessary to make
capital improvements to Hill in re-
cent years. The University has only
paid for emergency repairs to the in-
terior and exterior to the building.
Risenhoover said the University

racism. "Judaism is a religion from
God, but Zionism is a political ide-
ology introduced by secular Jews ...
a redefinition of Judaism."
Steven Susswein, an LSA senior,
disagreed with Aryan. "These peo-
ple's point of view is the lowest,
most despicable form of anti-
Semitism because it denies the
world's oldest nation the right to a
state ... They're questioning the very
(basis) of our religion."
Young Palestinians in their 20s
wake up to Israeli tanks and Uzis,
never having known anything but
occupation, Aryan said. "When one
looks at 40-plus years of occupation
... is this right? To deprive them of
their rights?"
But Susswein said that Israeli
Arabs are the freest in the Middle
East because they have the right to
vote, assemble, and speak.
Susswein also took issue with
Aryan's criticism that Soviet Jews
are offered instant citizenship
whereas Palestinians whose ances-
tors have lived on the land for years
are classified as stateless.
WEEKEND

"In the history of art, where are
the real people?" she asked. "Only
at the end of the 19th, and early 20th
century, the impressionist era, are
women portrayed as they look."
Kathy Linderman, a counselor at
the Therapy Center of Ann Arbor,
LSA junior Adrienne Storm, and RC
senior Mary Murphy connected eat-
ing disorders with media advertis-
ing.
"The ideal women's body is used
to sell women's products. They play
on the inadequacies of their audi-
ence," Murphy said.
"Even very attractive women

must conform to codes governing
accessibility for the handicapped be-
fore major renovations can begin. He
added that the University will in-
stall new bathrooms, better seating
arrangements, and public elevators
to meet these codes.
Mayer said new seats, a new
paint job, better exterior lighting, a
refreshment stand, a lounge, im-
proved audio and video facilitie
and organ repairs were also include
in the renovation plans.
He added that a small addition is
planned for the north side of the
building which would house the air-
conditioning system.
Risenhoover said the University
hired R. Lawrence Kirkegaard and
Associates to help refine the audito-
rium's renowned acoustics.
Renovations will be spread ouS
over several years in order to keep
Hill Auditorium open for concerts,
shows, and performances.
"The Jewish people were kicked
out and made a homeless people, and
they suffered because of that ... that
culminated in the Holocaust. The
State of Israel is reinstating the cit-
izenship they lost 2,000 years ago,"
he said. "Think of it as affirmative
action for Jews."
Finally, Aryan protested U.S. in-
volvement in the Middle East,
which he said props up corrupt
regimes in superpowers' interest.
"Look at the U.N. resolutions
Israel has ignored, even when last
May there was a massacre ... what
did the U.S. do? Absolutely noth-
ing."
Aryan disapproved of this polio
and called on all people to come to-
gether to dismantle Zionism.
"Islam recognizes (people of other
religions) and respects them
dearly," he said, adding that Israelis
should be able to settle the land, but
not by force.
"He has a lot of good points, but
he's making it oversimplified," said

Linderman said.
Greenfield, one of about 30 East
Quad students who participated in
organizing the weekend, said it was
a successful one.

imitate this ideal is

"It's been incredible. There's
been a lot of participation on the
part of both men and women," she
said.
"A lot of ideas and thoughts
have come out of it," she added. s

PROTEST
Continued from page 1
Yesterday afternoon, rally orga-
nizers made signs to carry at the
picket in front of the Campus Inn.
RC sophomore and FWU mem-
ber Jeannette Lim drew a poster de-
picting a bunny with a red slash
through it. Her slogan read,
"Playboy don't play with me."
"We don't feel this is a healthy
way for women to affirm them-

selves," Lim said.
LSA senior and PITT member
Linda Rosenfeld said the purpose of
the protest is not to criticize
women trying out for Playboy.
"It's hard to blame the women
when they're doing exactly what
society encourages them to do,"
Rosenfeld said.
