MSA pres.: Search needs student voice
Wainess to propose two
stages of student input
for presidential search
By Michelle Lee Thompson
Daily Staff Reporter
Michigan Student Assembly Presi-
dent Flint Wainess has created a pro-
posal on how the Board of Regents
should conduct its search for the next
Wainess said yesterday that he thinks
the regents should charge a search com-
mittee of faculty and students with nar-
rowing the search down to five to 10
candidates, and then announce the
names of those persons publicly.
The search would remain open from
"There's representation in the first
wave and the second wave is totally
open," Wainess said. "That would be a
legal search and an open search."
Wainess co-authored a letter to the
regents last week with MSA Vice Presi-
dent Sam Goodstein. The letter also
included a plea to the regents to make
this an open search.
"We are requesting that student mem-
bers are formally included on the search
committee to choose a new president,
and that MSA should be the body that
appoints the student members," the let-
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)
said students have been involved in the
past two presidential searches.
Baker said the regents have not dis-
cussed how the search will be con-
Goodstein and Wainess said in their
letter that students currently serving on
the committee to select a new provost
have made valuable contributions.
Although students were involved
in the 1987-88 search that resulted in
the hiring of President James J.
Duderstadt, the state Supreme Court
declared that search illegal because
of secret meetings between members
of the board.

Ehrler said the competition is "cama-

"(The competition) was a fun atmo-
sphere," team member Mike Szalma
said. "It was somewhat informal."
ROTC cadets are chosen for the team
based on try-outs. Cadets practice the
competition events for five weeks, four
times a week, for approximately two
hours a day. Nine cadets were for the
team based on their performance dur-

said, members continued to practice to

This year's team had six returning

City Council reviews fina attorey candidates.

Daily Staff Reporter
The city of Ann Arbor is one night
closer to filling its vacant position of
City Council finished the first day of
a two-day interview process with the
four finalists: Abigail Elias, Hurticene
Hardaway, acting city attorney John
Van Loon and M. Jill Weinger.
The candidates came from a larger
pool of applicants that had been paired
down to eight through a special panel.
The panel is composed of five council
members and five city residents, in-
cluding University lecturer Joan

candidates so far," said Councilmember

have to see what happens tomorrow."
The city attorney reports directly to
the council and serves as the main legal
adviser and the manager of the city's
In past years, the attorney has played
a larger role in city-University rela-
tions, especially when former city at-
torney Bruce Laidlaw tried to make the
University pay for its share of city ser-
vices. As another governmental body,
the University pays no property tax.
Elias and Hardaway were the first of
the four candidates to be interviewed.
During a caucus meeting Sunday
night, Mayor Ingrid Sheldon and coun-
cil members voted on questions to be
asked of the candidates. Questions per-
tained to the candidates' management
style, how they would handle hypo-
thetical situations and what they be-
lieve their role should be in dealing
with City Council, department heads
and the city administrator.
Elias, former deputy corporation
counsel for the city of Detroit, said she
was interested in making improvements
in the city attorney's office so that the
clients are better served.
"My philosophy in terms of a lawyer
is to be professional and as cordial as
possible," Elias said. "I do not think it is
the city attorney's place to be setting
policy. The lawyers need to be neutral
in terms of politics."
Hardaway focused on wanting to make
the legal staff more efficient, and cited
experience working in the city ofPontiac
and for the UAW-GM legal services.
"I have a lot of experience in evaluat-
ing staff," she said. "I think it is impor-
tant we use process that runs periodic
reviews (of staff)."
The interviews conclude today with
Van Loon and Weinger, the senior as-
sistant city attorney in Denver.

12-year-old author interviews Gov. Engler
LANSING (AP) - For a 12-year-
old, Amy Burritt has a polished guber-
natorial interviewing technique.
The Traverse City youth worked
through her prepared list of questions
yesterday when she interviewed Gov.
John Engler, her eighth one-on-one with
In the process of answering, Engler
told Amy his most significant duty is to
"set the tone and direction for govern-
ment policy" and said the Great Lakes,
visible as they are from outer space, are
the state's most significant attractions.
"Nothing defines us like the Great
Lakes," he said.
Amy's interview was part of a 56-
week tour of the United States the
youngster is taking with her family -
mom and dad, Emily and Kurt Burritt,
and 7-year-old brother Jonathan.
Although the two children have been
home-schooled for five years, Emily
Burritt said the trip is more of an Ameri-
can history lesson.
"It's not to promote home-schooling,
but traveling," she said.
Three books are planned from the
venture. Amy hopes to write a historical
book for students from her perspective,
Jonathan is planning an activity book
and Kurt and Emily are planning a book
detailing the experiences of an Ameri-
can traveling family.
Kurt Burritt, who sold his interest in
a family meat market to pay for the trip,
said the intent of Amy's book is to make
history more appealing to students.
"Something we found missing in our
education is it had no timeline. Part of
the idea of the book is to make it fun,
interesting - and in order," he said.
So the trip is being arranged as a
timeline. It began on the East Coast
with Plymouth Rock and Boston.
