"Everybody wants to be used equally," said Mrs. Hynes. "I've talked to the head of Indian Affairs for this area and the chief's wife (Mrs. Jackson) about this.. Mrs. Jackson was in perfect accord with me. . . . (she) "is neglecting her duties, . .only eight percent. . . are registered." - - Klousia. "It's the same for everyone," she continued. "If someone wants to register to vote in Chippewa Township, they must come to my home." As a result of what one Student Government spokesman ternsd "unfair selection," a drive to register Indians living on the Chippewa Reservation— who are currently unable to register in Chippewa Township--is underway. "I only live about a mile from the reservation," said Mrs, Hynes. "Iregister people almost any time they ask me to. Also, on Friday I'll be taking registrations from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m." Klousia's letter to the state elections bureau maintained, "Mrs. Hynes has, in the past, allowed registration drives to be set up in areas other than the Reservation." Mrs. Hynes commented, "I got a letter . from the state to go over to the schools to register people, but I'm not going to do this. If you have a special registration drive for one group you've got to do it for them all." Because of the continuing controversy, the CMU Tribal Council voted unanimously "to Support the drive to register those persons eligible to vote who are living on the Reservation. ___________ "It's the same for everyone. . .they must come to my home." _ Mrs Hynes . Klousia has announced for the Tribal Council, that plans have begun to provide a shuttle service for those on the Reservation to be taken to Mrs. Hynes' home today to register. Indians will be taken to the Chippewa Township Clerk's office—Mrs. Hynes' home—through April 14 in order for them to be able to vote in the primary election. Anyone interested in helping with publicity or driving the Indians to register, may contact Klousia or Student Body President Tim Horan at Central's Student Government office or by phoning 774-4644.

ZTS^f^SSSA Stee/an.c.asse, Nw pastime sweet & sticky re 16 One such program, under the guidance of three English instructors, David Law- ton, Peter Fries and Hans Fetting, is an interdisciplinary program in linguistics. Under this program, now in its third year of operation, students can earn an ""guistics. And for the first time since the initiation of the program, Lawton said, the English department has produced its first linguistics major. Eric Woisetschlaeger, Mt. Pleasant senior, was accepted in the graduate school at Massachusetts Institute. of Technology to study under some of the foremost scholars in the linguistics field. Woisetschlaeger's acceptance marks an outstanding achievement for himself and the progress of the department's program, Lawton said. In a recent article about "Teaching of English to Speakers of other Languages" in the English Department newsletter, it was indicated that the need for teachers of English during the next few years will be largely for those with concentration in teaching of reading, composition, comparative literature, and applied linguistics, Lawton continued. He added, students majoring in linguistics should also consider the study of a foreign language particularly Spanish. In urban areas where there are large concentrations of Spanish speaking children, Lawton said, the knowledge of a foreign language would definitely be an asset in teaching of these students. Another feature of the linguistics major is the bilingual programs conducted in Grand Rapids. In cooperation with the University of Michigan, Michigan State and Western Michigan University, teachers-are prepared to cope with, students whose language background is Chicano Spanish, Puerto Rican Spanish and Cuban Spanish. / Lawton believes working in this type of program provides an opportunity to become socially and culturally aware of people in these geographical areas. Students interested in the linguistics program contact Lawton in Anspach 230 for further information.
