WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Bar-
bara-Rose Collins, speaking on a radio
program yesterday, said reports alleg-
ing violations of House ethics rules and
financial irregularities in her congres-
sional offices and campaign organiza-
tion have been a "nightmare."
"I see such lies.... It's a frightening
thing, the power of the media," the
Detroit Democrat told WCHB-AM ra-
dio in Detroit. "I never dreamed that I
would be in this position. It's a night-
Collins, who is black, renewed
charges that she was under the press
spotlight because ofracism and sexism.
And she said that Detroit newspapers
were retaliating against her forher show
of sympathy with striking workers.
Employees at The Detroit News and
Detroit Free Press have been on strike
since July 13.
"If a black person says someone is
racist, the newspaper accuses them of
playing the race card," Collins said
during the "JoAnn Watson Show."
"I am meeting with a lawyer ... to see
what I can do to stop the attacks on me,"
Collins said of the press: "They don't
like me. They don't think I'm good
enough. They don't like the way I talk.
They don't like the way I walk. They
don't like the way I dress.
"They can harass me to the grave,"
The U.S. Justice Department has
launched a preliminary investigation
into reports of financial irregularities in
Collins' congressional office and cam-
Collins said in the radio interview
that shoe was not aware of any govern-
ment probe or FBI requests to interview
her staff or look at financial records.
She said allegations that any office or
campaign money went for her personal
use are "dead wrong."
Collins has acknowledged mistakes
were made in some of her campaign
finance filings, such as one item where
she lists spending $8,500 for clocks
from a store where she only spent $948.
Collins also has been under fire for
her possible violation of House ethics
rules in asking for thousands of dollars
from corporations for a private commu-
nity service fund. The fund, the Collins
Congressional Community Service
Committee, appears to collect and spend
its money in secret, the Free Press re-
In the latest addition to the growing
allegations, the Free Press reported yes-
terday that Collins failed to disclose on
annual congressional financial forms
that she held positions in the organiza-
tion of two other private, nonprofit
According to corporate records in
Michigan and the District of Columbia,
Collins was listed as a corporate direc-
tororagent of the Barbara-RoseCollins
Scholarship Fund and the Collins Con-
gressional Community Scholarship
Committee, the Free Press reported.
Federal law and House ethics rules
require that on the annual congressional
reports, members must list any posts
they hold, including positions in non-
The House ethics committee re fused
to comment yesterday on whether they
were starting an investigation of Collins.

Tom Skelly, director of the budget
systems division of the Department
of Education, said, "By cutting out
money from direct loan administra-
tion, they're cutting out money for
FFEL administration." Skelly said if
the federal government moved to 100-
percent direct loans, $4.1 billion
would be saved.
Undersecretary of Education Mike
Smith called the Republican proposal
"politics as usual."
"It's providing funds for banks rather
than for students and schools," Smith
said. "Right now, the banks are carry-
ing on a big campaign to convince Con-
gress because they get a guaranteed
profit from it."
In a June letter to Sen. Spencer
Abraham (R-Mich.), Lawrence
Lindsey, a conservative Republican
economist on the Federal Reserve
Board, said the economic effect of both
loan programs is identical.
"However, taxpayer cost is less for
direct lending largely because the gov-
ernment can obtain capital less expen-
sively through the sale of government
securities than the market rates it must
pay to support a system of loan guaran-
tees. As long as it is necessary to provide
a profit to induce lenders to guarantee
student loans, direct lending will be
cheaper," Lindsey wrote in the letter.
Michigan Student Assembly Presi-
dent Flint Wainess, and University
President James J. Duderstadt have
authored a viewpoint supporting con-
tinuation of the direct loan program for
placement in a national newspaper, said
Lisa Baker, associate vice president for
"I think that clearly this Congress is
siding with the banks overthe students,"
Wainess said. "Eliminating the federal
direct student loan program will
recomplicate the federal aid program
for students. ... (The direct loan pro-
gram'is) a very free-market approach,
and that's the irony in this Congress'
rejection of it."
House Republican opponents of di-
rect loans, however, say that the pro-
gram has expanded government bureau-
cracy. And they charge that this is one
more example of the Clinton
administration's desire to expand gov-
Hoekstra said he feels it is not the
government's job to run a loan pro-
"We've seen many other things that
the government runs, that the private
sector also runs," Hoekstra said. "I'm
not really interested in putting govern-
ment in competition with the private
But Haper asked: "Do we really want
our tax dollars to go to supporting the
"If we're going to have financial aid
programs, they need to be operated ef-
ficiently so there is little waste in the
system, and sometimes in the political
process, people forget that."
Smith said that this is a "public sector
vs. private sector" debate. "The irony in
that is that we contract out to the private
sector for almost everything for the
running of the program," he said.
Universities may be able to make
access to financial aid easier for stu-
dents without the direct loan program,
Hoekstra said. He said some schools
have been able to better meet the needs
of their students.
"We've had testimony of universi-
ties that have streamlined their pro-
grams. They have simplified the pro-
grams as much as the federal govern-
ment has," Hoekstra said. "I think the
universities have a real opportunity to
go through and make it easier for stu-
dents to get loans."
Traci Weinstein, an LSA junior who
receives direct federal loans, said the
program makes it easier for students,
but the guaranteed loan program was
not all that difficult either.
"The way it is now is easier," she
said. "That way we don't have to apply
separately to the banks."
Haper said if the direct loan program
is eliminated, her office would have to
redesign its computer systems, and stu-
dents would lose the benefits of direct
deposits for financial aid and easy track-
ing of funds.
"It would probably work better than
it has in the past, but never as good as
direct loans," she said.

"The object to Magic is not only to
destroy your opponent with strategic
plays, but to strategically upgrade and
refine your deck of cards too," said
Jimmy Huang, owner of Campus Col-
lectibles which supplies Magic cards.
"Several of my customers spend lots of
money and days trying to create the
'ultimate' deck.... Players' weaknesses
are revealed in their defeat and this
gives them something to work on."
According to several players and store
owners who sell Magic Cards, the ma-
jority of Magic players are male.
"It is a very sexist game because
some of the cards have pictures of half-
naked women barbarians on them," said
LSA first-year student Libby Walen.
"It does not have to be sexist, though.
I play it anyway because of the keen win-
lose competition aspect," Walen said.
But, she added, "I am not an addict."
The guide book advises players:
"Magic offers its players an almost lim-
itless playing field composed of fan-
tasy terms and mathematical combina-
tions, which can remain exciting as
