A panel of students, faculty and ad-
ministrators said yesterday the Univer-
sity, while acting quickly after environ-
mental damage occurs, must take more
preventative measures.
The discussion was sponsored by
SNRE instructor Andy Duncan and stu-
dents in his class titled "Greening the
Maize and Blue."
"Too many times we wait until some-
thing happens and then we decide to
react," said panelist Douglas Faising,
manager of Grounds and Waste Man-
agement.
Panelist Harrison Morton, SNRE's
associate dean, said that although the
University does not take enough pre-
ventative measures, it is "quite good at
looking after safety and environmental
concerns."
James Christenson, director of Uni-
versity plant operations, cited several
positive measures that the University
has taken for the environment. Since
reforms implemented in the early 1970s,
Christenson said that the University has
saved $78 million through energy con-
servation efforts. He also spoke favor-
ably of the busing system and recycling
efforts, which amount to 200 tons of
material recycled at the University each
year.
The panel also expressed concern
over the Value Centered Management
policy, which is a budgeting system
that also calls for a more decentralized
decision-making process at the Univer-
sity. Morton said that he worried that
such changesin University policy would
cause an "extreme pressure to watch

the bottom line." Such pressure could
cause people forget"the common good,"
Morton said.
"We're going to have to find ways to
work smart because the money is just
not going to be there for some things,"
Faising added.
As a way to improve the environ-
mental status on campus, the panel
agreed that the University should take
actions to increase student involvement
and communication among University
levels.
Morton said that the University "needs
help at identifying concerns" and agreed
that students, faculty and administrators
have to "come together as a University
community to create a forum for people
to voice their concerns."
"I think that students are an extremely
valuable resource," said panelist
Jonathan Kazmierski, an SNRE sopho-
more taking the class. "(But we need) a
direct avenue of communication so that
they can become more involved."
"We don't talk to each other enough
that we really work effectively," Faising
said. Without sufficient communica-
tion, "you're left to the trivances of
engineers and architects," he added in
reference to the construction on cam-
pus.
SNRE senior Mike Newman, another
student in the class, said that construc-
tion on campus carried out by the ad-
ministration without the consultation
of students and faculty "sometimes
makes it hard to trust the University."
Christenson identified a solution to
environmental problems on campus as
"taking care ofthe place as if it were our
own."

Residents and staff at the Alice Lloyd residence hall
began two new contributions to the Names Project AIDS
Memorial Quilt last night.
The subjects for the quilt brought the disease close to
home: One of the squares was dedicated to the brother of
an Alice Lloyd employee and the other was made in
memory of Aiathony Lynch, an acquaintance of Alice
Lloyd resident adviser Matt Austin.
"He was interested in antiques and was a huge Mickey
Mouse fan," Avastin said. "We're trying to incorporate that
into the quilt. Combining the two is a challenge."
"This was siomething I've wanted to do," said John
Kiplinger, a Rackham student and the head librarian for
Alice Lloyd. "This seemed like a more personal way to get
involved than going to a speech or participating in a
march."
Liz Prince, coordinator of residence education, said it
was importanit for students to have greater awareness of
the disease.
"Students believe, 'Oh, it can never happen to me,"'
Prince said. "But chances are, there are people in this
building with HIV."
Prince said it was difficult to find a former student as a
subject for a square.
"We tried to get the name of a former student at the
University, blot the family members said no because they

Thisws something that
I've wanted to do,. This
seeed ikea morepersonal
way to get involved than
going to a speech or
participating in a march."
-John Kiplinger
Rackham student and Alice Lloyd librarian
didn't want people to assume their son was gay," Prince
said.
Organizers are hoping to raise $200 as a donation for the
Names Project. "It costs them money to send this sort of
stuff all over the country," Prince said.
Alice Lloyd's other activities for AIDS Awareness
Week included tying red ribbons to trees in front of the
building and a large display in the front lobby.
LSA first-year student Wendy Ware said she was drawn
to participate on the basis of past experiences. "I've had a
friend that died of AIDS, and I know other people with
AIDS," she said.

Members of three Great Lakes Na-
tive Ameriaan tribes are scheduled to
perform tornight as part of Native
American Heritage Month.
The Two Hawk Singers and Danc-
ers dance troupe and drum circle is
composed-of members of the Ojibwe,
Ottawa awd Potawatomi tribes, and
will be performing traditional tribal
dances accompanied by a drum
circle.
One of the dances scheduled to be
performed is the Jingle Cone dance,
which is a healing dance tradition-
ally perf*rmed by women. The danc-
ers are attired in outfits of pressed
tin.
"The lhealing dance is very impor-

tant," said George Martin, a member
of the Ojibwe tribe that will be per-
forming. Martin said the dance is typi-
cally performed for specific people
who are sick.
Also to be performed is the men's
traditional dance, which Martin said
is the "oldest dance known to man."
"All the things we wear (for this
dance) were given to us to use," he
said, referring to the outfit of bear and
deer skins and eagle feathers.
Each dance is accompanied by its
own song performed by the drum
circle. The drummers chant as the
dancers perform. The songs performed
tonight are in the Ojibwe and Ottawa
languages.

Finally, an intertribal dance will
be performed, in which all tribes
dance together. RC senior Sara Pasky,
who scheduled the troupe to perform,
said this is "done as a symbol of
unity."
"Everywhere we go (to perform) is
important to teach the traditions,"
Martin said.
The performance is scheduled
for 7:30 tonight in East Quad's south
cafeteria. Theperformance isfree and
open to the public.
