For the Daily
Go Blue - to the recycling crew.
Even when the Wolverines lose, the Athletic
Department wins in a new waste-reduction pro-
gram initiated by three SNRE graduate students
and University Grounds and Waste Management.
Since the start of the football season, Jeanne
Carlson, Wendy Comeau and Ornitte Nagar have
been picking up vendors' cardboard containers and
have set up receptacles for fans to discard their pizza
boxes and cider bottles- all inthe name ofrecycling
to reduce landfill space. Each game generates about
two to three garbage-truck loads of waste.
"It has been a strange mix of disappointment
and motivation," Comeau said, noting that institu-

tional practices are hard to change because they
have been in place for so long.
Since landfill regulations have become more
stringent in the last few years, the grounds depart-
ment decided the stadium needed help to reduce the
University's waste. The three SNRE students said
they would take on the task and use it for their
master's practicum, which is required for gradua-
tion. So far, they said they have been able to recover
8 to 16 percent of the waste stream per game.
"We started out behind the scenes, and now are
trying to make sure the public knows it's happen-
ing," said Erica Spiegel, the recycling coordinator
for University Grounds and Waste Management.
Crowd size also makes it hard to create awareness.
"It's been a challenge because people want to

go watch the game, eat a few hot dogs," Spiegel said.
Carlson said some people throw hot dogs and
chewing gum in their dumpsters, assuming they are
collecting trash.
"It's frustrating because there are just so many
people there that they just don't see it," Nagar said.
Fans consume about 3,000 pretzels, up to 50,000
soft drinks in plastic cups and up to 3,500 pizzas
each game, leading to a tremendous cleanup respon-
sibility for the Athletic Department. So the depart-
ment views the recycling crew as an improvement
for the stadium.
"There are containers all over the stadium. These
bins show that we at the Athletic Department are
into recycling," said Leon Tweedy, a stadium super-
visor.

Four women trick-or-treat at East Quad on Saturday night.
Tria t ben ow Coming's

Daily Staff Reporter
HUES Magazine began in 1992 as a
women's studies "action project" by
three University students, but with a
circulation of 120,000, it is now the first
internationally recognized multicultural
pro-woman's magazine.
Ophira Edut, Dyann Logwood and
Tali Edut, the publishersof HUES, were
inspired to create a magazine that would
abolish what they call the ideal image
of women.
HUES, which stands for "Hear Us
Emerging Sisters," is published quarterly.
"When you go to the magazine racks
all you will see on the magazine covers
are women that are six feet tall and 100
pounds with blond hair and blue eyes,"
said Ophira Edut. "Today, too many
women down-grade themselves and
other women"
"HUES provides for women a ca-
thartic experience where women might
read an article and realize they aren't
alone with what they are experienc-
ing," said Tali Edut. "It promotes self-
esteem in women, which is the basic
key to accomplishing anything."
The publishers of HUES said they be-
lieve ethnic women are underrepresented
in magazines. "There needs to be a maga-
zine thathasarticles andpicturesofdown-
to-earth women that readers can identify
with," said Ophira Edut.
"No race is good enough for these
magazines. Either the skin is too dark,
or the height is too short; there always
is an excuse for not representing women
of color in magazines," she said. "We
recognized this problem, and so we
decided to start a magazine that did
things differently."
All three publishers lived in Bursley
Hall as undergraduates. "We used to

have late-night talks as we ate pizza in
our dorm rooms or by vending mi
chines about everything: self-esteemh,
diet, race and society," said Ophira Edut.
"We were a strong, sisterly support
network for each other."
HUES provides a space for women of
all experiences to tell what they think and
stories of what they face in their lives.
"Unlike othermagazines, HUES does not
discriminate against race, genderorsexual
orientation," said Ophira Edut.
Although HUES is a pro-worfin
magazine, that does not mean it is aflt-
male. "If the truth hurts, the pai1T s
justified," said Ophira Edut. "One igs-e
got more mail from men than womi .
Most men like H UES because they want
to know and understand what wonien
think," she said.
"We try to be fair. Male-bashing # a
ridiculous thing," said Tali Edut. "Min
have been bashing women for yeats,
and when women finally speak. cit
against it, we are accused of bashin4."
Some people said that HUES comes
along at the right time. "Today thereas
a need for this type of magazine andlit
is welcomed," said LSA senior Darifis
Garcia, the quiz editor and circulation
director for HUES. t
"Finally women are beginning o
appreciate who they are, and their boil-
ies too. They aren't trying to be like the
models that are always seen in CosMo
and in Vogue," Garcia said.
HUES magazine encourages intr-
ested people of any race, gender or
sexual orientation to join its staff (thay
call it their "collective") or to subnit
opinions. A mass meeting is held Jbe
second Monday of every month. Tie
time and location of the mass meeting
will be announced on e-mail at
hues@mail.lifeplay.net.

tion costs have been unreasonable.
Dow Corning insists the implants
are safe, and major scientific studies
have found no link between the im-
plants and serious diseases.
The Midland-based company cited
the cost of defending itself against the
lawsuits, and the reluctance of its
insurers to pay, when it filed for Chap-
ter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in
May.
Since then, the lawsuits against
Dow Corning have been on hold.
Jury selection in the insurance case
is scheduled to begin tomorrow in
Wayne County Circuit Court. Open-
ing arguments should begin Wednes-
day and the trial is expected to last a
month, Dow Corning spokeswoman
Barbara Muessig said.
As recently as September, Dow

pany bought from 1962 through 1985.
But many have since settled.
As of Friday, the company was
ready to go to trial against 43 insurers
with 396 policies that provide for
more than $1 billion in coverage,
Muessig said. But Dow Corning said
settlements with several insurers were
expected before the trial begins.
The jury will be asked to deter-
mine which policies apply to the liti-
gation and to resolve conflicts be-
tween overlapping policies. Policies
the company bought after 1985 are of
a different type and are not at issue.
The insurers had covered Dow
Coming's costs of defending, settling
and paying judgments for breast-im-
plant claims until the company was
flooded with the liability lawsuits in
1992, company attorney Scott Adams
