said. "I had just come out of Dooley's, the big
bar up here, and I was taking a leak. I didn't

they took mug shots. I didn't get to make a

disorderly conduct," Weesies said. The
maximum penalty under state law for
indecent exposure is $500 or one year in jail.
Although University police in Ann Arbor
were unavailable for comment last night, few
University students had heard of widespread
arrests for public urination on campus.
LSA junior Richard Beame said, "I've had a

more we can sell."

As the student occupation of the
City University of New York
(CUNY) system entered its 12th
day yesterday, students at the State
University of New York (SUNY)
at Stony Brook joined the protest.
The takeover of SUNY-Stony
Brook marks the 15th school held
by students protesting reforms to
New York state and city schools
proposed by Gov. Mario Cuomo.
If the state legislature accepts
the proposal, the students will face
a 67 percent tuition increase, layoffs
of more than 800 faculty, and pro-
gram cuts. The cuts will affect
CUNY more severely than SUNY.
Jan Pierce, leader of the SUNY-
Stony Brook takeover movement,
said, "We feel that we should not
have to account for the budget
deficit of the state of New York.
We're sorry that the government
has no money, but it's not our fault,
so we simply refuse to pay."
Tom Conroy, a spokesperson for
Gov. Cuomo, said, "It came as no
surprise to us that the students are
upset about this proposal. We knew
they'd be unhappy, but it's our only
choice at this point."
"Gov. Cuomo respects the stu-
dents right to use their First
Amendment rights," he added.
SUNY-Purchase faculty mem-
bers have joined the student move-
ment as well.
Albert White, a professor of
psychology at SUNY-Purchase
said, "In the teaching profession,
you occasionally encounter phenom-
enal students who make you feel
like it's all worthwhile. At SUNY-
Purchase, such students abound. It
would really be a shame if they
were unable to be educated for fi-
"We must back up our students
in their protest of an unfair policy,"
