MSA debate addresses activism, toilet paper

April 7, 1981 — Four Michigan Student Assembly presidential candidates fielded questions about everything from increasing student activism to soft toilet paper in a debate last night.

One of the major topics at the debate was MSA’s involvement with outside political issues.

“We shouldn’t exclude a group (from funding) because it is a political group,” said Jon Feiger, People’s Action Coalition candidate.

One audience member also asked Joyride Party candidate Steve Roach about his party’s “soft toilet paper” proposal, saying that lobbying for such things was unfair to those who preferred “hard toilet paper.”

Himmelstein fielded the question, suggesting that both types of toilet paper be made available to students.



An article on Page 5 of yesterday’s edition of the Daily should have said that the play “Raised in Captivity” will be performed at the Arena Theatre.

An article on Page 1A of Monday’s edition of the Daily should have said that the vice president of Michigan NORML is Melody Karr, and Kate Dillon is the assistant director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws chapter at the University. Also, the U.S. Supreme Court case mentioned in the article should have been Ashcroft v. Raich, and it is uncertain when the Court will rule on the case. It also should have said that the march led by Scio Township Trustee Charles Ream was planned well in advance.
