for 4,600 pints in
annual blood drive

By Stu Berlow
Daily Staff Reporter
After Saturday's loss to Michigan
State, the Michigan football team must
turn its attention to vital games against
Purdue, Penn State and Ohio State.
While the Wolverines prepare to crush
the Buckeyes, University students find
themselves in a similar competition with
their counterparts in Columbus.
The 14th annual Michigan vs. Ohio
State blood battle, sponsored by Alpha
Phi Omega sorority and the American
Red Cross, began yesterday at East Quad
and will continue at various sites around
campus through Nov. 17.
"Every year we collect more than
them," said co-coordinator Gretchen
Stoor, an Education senior. "It's usu-
ally done on a percentage basis, but this
year it's a straight campus-versus-cam-
pus competition."
Stoor said the goal is for each school
to collect 2,300 pints of blood. "Today's
turnout's been pretty good and we're
optimistic about the rest of the week,"
said co-coordinator Dawn Osterholt, an
LSA junior.
"I'm giving blood because it just
seems like a good thing to do," said
LSA sophomore Jenny Preston: "They
need blood and I have it, so why not?"
Other students began just as excited,
but were less enthusiastic afterward. "Ev-
erything was fine until I started to feel

faint," said RC sophomore John McCoy.
"It's important to help people, and this is
something I felt I should do, but this
doesn't help me wanting to do this again."
Despite the occasional donor feeling
faint, the coordinators said no major
dangers exist when giving blood. "There
are no health risks, you can't get any
disease," Osterholt said. "All the fluid
you lose is regained in one hour."
Donors are encouraged to eat a good
meal before giving blood.
Stoor added, "Everything is new and
sterile every time, and the nurses are
very well trained."
Appointments are accepted but not
required to donate blood. Osterholt said
the entire process takes approximately
one hour and requirements include be-
ing 17 years old, weighing 110 pounds
and having good health.

Who said lawyers don't have a heart?
Pro Bono Students America/Gieat
Lakes, anew national organizationddi-
cated to connecting law school studnts
with valuable public-issue internships,
introduced itself to campus at a recepion
Friday.
"It's the domestic, legal version ofthe
Peace Corps for students in law school,"
said Director Rob Precht, a former gub-
lic defender for New York City.
The program, sponsored by the Ford
Motor Co., involves a computer dta-
base ofnationwide volunteer and inem
positions available for law school stu-
dents to access. Based on students *ef-
erences and experience, the computer
provides a list of potential employ ers.
Any compensation is worked out be-
tween students and employers.
Al Guskins, a student leader ofe the
Peace Corps movement 35 years ago
and current chancellor of Antioch Vni-
versity in Ohio, was the guest of hnor
at the reception.
"Many people who entered the Pace
Corps said, 'We learn much more han
we gave.' Students should serve and
apply what they learn," Guskins said.
"The purpose is to create a network
that can be accessed nationally. We're
responsible for gathering information
on Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylva-
nia," said regional director Susan
Guindi.
Some students said they felt the
progam would make it easier for tem
to pursue public service.
"In the first and second year, it's ard
to get experience. They're making t as
easy as possible to get involve by
doing a lot of the legwork," said fjrst-
year Law student Kevin Bringueh'
"The idea is to get us interested eerly
on by alleviating the roadblocks,"said
first-year Law student Jason Sanders.
Students may access the progam
through the Law School's Offic of
Public Service.
Guskins shared many inspiring
thoughts about his experience wit) the
Peace Corps.
"I was 24 when I started teaching in
Thailand. It was my first real job. It
changes the way you think about the
world," he said.
Precht said he hopes the program
will be just as motivating and suceess-
ful as the Peace Corps. Four law schools
in the region are participating ii the
program and more are expected tojoin,
he said.
"I researched Kennedy's speech and
found that Al Guskins and other stu-
dents made it (Peace Corps) happen. I
want to put University students bak in
touch with that tradition," Precht aid.

Latino leaders encourage student activism

By Katie Wang
Daily Staff Reporter
"Students and youths are finding
themselves at the forefront of an inter-
section between a lot of love, hope and
the Contract 'on' America and right-
wing mobilization," said Latino activ-
ist Angel Cervantes.
Campus activism was the theme of a
focusedpanel discussion Friday, as three
prominent Latino leaders shared their
past experiences and encouraged stu-
dents to remain active on campus is-
sues.
The three activists, Roberto
Rodriguez, Vivian Brady and Cervantes
were involved in different movements
throughout three different decades.
"The issues of 1989 are the same
issues that we are struggling for now,"
Brady said. "The question of our pres-
ence at universities is being raised
again."
Brady was an undergraduate at the
City University of New York's Hunter
campus when she and other students
took over buildings and shut down the
campus for one week to protest tuition
increases and other administration poli-
cies.

"The issues of 1989 are the same
issues that we are struggling for nOW,
The question of our presence at
universities is Obeing raised avanBad
- Vivian Brady
Latino activist

"We were treated as if we should be
grateful to receive an education at all,
and we shouldn't demand anything,"
Brady said.
Overall, Brady said the strike was
successful due to a concentrated effort
of different minority organizations on
campus. She encouraged campus
groups to form a dialogue with each
other and to "be supportive of each
other."
Cervantes also emphasized the im-
portance of building coalitions: "Coali-
tion politics is the key to the future," he
said.
Cervantes, a graduate student at
Claremont State and founder of the
Four Winds Student Movement -

which organized the Oct. 12 National
Day of Action to defend Affirmative
Action - recently ended a 16-day
hunger strike in protest of the Univer-
sity of California regents' July deci-
sion to cut affirmative action programs.
On Nov. 16, the UC regents are sched-
uled to revote on the issue, Cervantes
said.
"I emphasize this struggle is not a
new one," Cervantes said. "We are not
inventing something new, we are con-
itinuing a struggle."
Cervantes also stressed the impor-
tance of building on the accomplish-
ments of previous activists.
"We must not tear down everything
we have built. We must strengthen

them," he said.
Panelists also addressed the issue
of male supremacy within organiza-
tions. In reference to the Oct. 16 Mil-
lion Man March, Brady said, "It is
possible to talk about male supremacy
and to deal with the issues at the same
time."
"Male supremacy is not an issue for
the back burner," she said.
Audience member Renee Moreno
said she was impressed by Brady's view-
point on gender issues.
"(Brady) really gave voice to con-
cerns I have as a woman," Moreno said.
"She's given me a way to approach
issues of gender."
Rodriguez, one of the principal or-
ganizers in New York City activism,
concluded the discussion by advising
campus leaders who were concerned
about drawing a larger number of par-
ticipants, to "recognize your limits.
There's going to be a struggle tomor-
row."
The panel discussion, held in the LSA
Building, was sponsored by the Office
of Academic and Multicultural Initia-
tives in conjunction with the Latino/a
Task Force.

Pickets clash with guards, police

ROSEVILLE (AP) - Security
guards and police clashed with several
hundred pickets early yesterday during
a rally at a distribution center of the
strike-bound Detroit Free Press and The
Detroit News.
Police used pepper spray to disperse
the pickets, who smashed a police car
window and threw rocks.
Pickets gathered in Roseville, 12miles
northeast of Detroit, about 2 a.m. in what
has become weekly rallies at various
distribution centers. The pickets have
been trying to block carriers picking up
yesterday's combined editions.
About 2:30 a.m., about a dozen of

guards in riotgearmoved in on about 50
pickets milling near a construction site
next to the center. The guards pushed
the pickets away with their shields and
sticks.
The pickets threw rocks, angrily
taunted the guards and overturned a
portable street light at the distribution
center.
The police quickly moved in and
took one picket into custody, while the
rest of the pickets fled from that area.
John Anthony, director of security at
Detroit Newspapers, said he has re-
ceived no reports of clashes between
pickets and guards.

"I know of no such incidents," he
said in a telephone interview.
Anthony said some windows were
broken when pickets threw rocks at the
center building.
In front of the center, hundreds of
pickets shouted, "No scabs! Union!"
facing off the guards and police stand-
ing in line on the other side.
About half an hour later, the police
again moved in, using pepper spray,
making at least one more arrest.
Roseville Police Officer Keith
Waller, answering the phone at head-
quarters, confirmed that pepper spray
was used on the demonstrators but could
not confirm any injuries or arrests.
No ambulance service had been re-
quested as of about 4:15 a.m., he said.
Reinforcement was sent into the area,
including officers from neighboring
towns, and the disturbance was brought
under control by 4 a.m., he said.
The six unions representing about
2,500 workers at the Free Press, News
and Detroit Newspapers, which over-
sees business operations at the two pa-
pers, walked out July 13.
They were unable to reach an agree-
ment with management on a new con-
tract because of many issues, including
wages and benefits.
