Mich. 48859 Wednesday, March 28,1984 Indecent entertainment' attacked by STEVE IIASSJE UFE Staff Wrttar If an area church committee has its way, Isabella County will have an indecent entertainment ordinance. The Mount Pleasant Community Church, 1012 W. High, under the parsonage of Rev. Malcolm G. Brown, currently is distributing request forms to both its own members and members of several other area churches. The requests are an attempt to spur the possible implementation "for the control, regulation and prohibition of indecent entertainment in our county," Gladys Mitchell, church committee member, said. "The main reason for getting people's signatures are to show that there is a strong concern against that (indecent) type of 44 The main reason for getting people's signatures are to show that there is a strong concern against that (indecent) type of behavior. —Gladys Mitchell, Mount Pleasant Community Church - member T 99 behavior," she said. Mitchell, 814 S. Kinney, cited male .and female strip shows as a chief issue addressed in the petition. She further named a November male-dancer show at the Holiday Inn, 5665 E. Pickard, as a key example of "indecent entertainment." Mitchell said a similar ordinance currently is being channeled through state government officials for Osceola County. "I saw them working on the ordinance in January, and asked for an exact copy," she said. Osceola County Clerk Carl Wyman said the ordinance, recently passed by its county commission, is now waiting for Gov. James Blanchard's signature. The ordinance is under review by state assistant attorney Rod MacGillis.

Sen. William Sederburg, chairman of the Senate higher education appropriations committee, said the subcommittee had scheduled meetings at four colleges and universities in the state, including an April 16 hearing at Central. "We're interested in getting out of the Capitol to get a flavor of the campuses and interact more," Sederburg, R-East Lansing, said. In recent years the appropriation hearings have been in the state Capitol along with House members. The Senate also scheduled visits to Marygrove College in Detroit, Western Michigan University and Michigan State University for April 9 and 16 and May 7, respectively. Sederburg said. "It helps a great deal to get a feel of the campus and sec what the money is being used for." Sederburg said. "It's easier on one's home turf than in the political waters down here in Lansing." President Harold Abel said he was pleased the Senate appropriations subcommittee selected Central'as one of the four meeting sites. ♦See "Senate" — page 2A Annual SGA election format may be altered by RICH ROBINSON UFE Staff Writer Determining how students will be represented by the Student Government Association could change if SGA gets its way. A plan, which would switch the current method of representation by class population to a district format will be discussed at tonight's SGA meeting. "Right now we're looking in to the plausibility of a district system instead of using the one we are at the present." SGA President Bill Kennis said. The reason for the proposed change is due to problems representatives have with keeping in touch with their const itutents. Kennis said. ♦See "SGA"—page2A Contract talks to begin today While the Faculty Association will present its contract proposal, the Administration will offer a "summary" of its objectives in the first day of negotiations today.

William Dunham, associate vice provost for Faculty Contractual Relations. The two teams will meet in the President's Conference Room in the University Center at 2 p.m. for the closed bargaining session.
