Student enrollment up
If you think the Drop-/Add lines are a little longer and the bars a
little more crowded these days, you're right. There are 623 extra
bodies running around the University campus this year. Enrollment is
36,577 this fall, up from last year's 35,954. At the Univertsity's'
Dearborn campus, enrollment is now 5,955-up from 5,480 last year.
Flint's student body of 3,884 represents an increase of 83 from the 1977-
78 figures. And we're not alone. The'State Board of Education has
reported a slight increase in overall enrollment for Michigan's 94
colleges and universities. The Board said 485,858 students are now
enrolled compared to 485,400 last year. That represents an increase of
one-tenth of one per cent.
'U'students advanced
And not only are there more students at the University, but a larger
number of those students have Advanced Placement (AP) credit this
year - more, in fact, than any other American college. Figures
compiled by the College Board, which administers the tests to high
school seniors, show that 1,155 entering Michigan students took 1,749
individual examinations in May 1978. IOf that number virtually all
enrolled in this fall's class of 4,000 freshpersons. Thus, one-fourth of
the class came with AP credits. Running behind the University in the
number of students with AP credits were the University of
California-Berkeley (1,106), University of California (1,041), Cornell
University (977), University of Illinois (945), University of
Pennsylvania (864), and Harvard and Radcliffe colleges (844).
Clifford F. Sjogren, director of admissions at the University, said he
was pleased that the University again leads the nation in AP students.
"We have been first for the past several years, he said. "Students with
AP credits tend to be from the strongest high schools, and they
generally have elected the best courses taught in those schools. The
University's large number of AP students is another yardstick
indication that we have a fine caliber of student."

A Malpractice
In New York a company calling itself "Grand Mal, Ltd." is urging
its customers to lift their spirits in a typical way-by being pushy, and
telling everyone off. Grand Mal's Christmas product is
"TELL'EMOFF!", a series of multiple choice complaint letteers,
written with acid-tongue-in-cheek for those who wish to fight back
against big companies and less-than-perfect local businessfolk. The
company suggests that their efforts at sarcastic humor can help
frustrated customers let off a little steam. But to some, the complaint
letters just may seem even more depressing in their exaggerated
complaints than was the original offending incident. Don't worry,
Grand Mal has kindly included a form complaint letter to be sent to
themselves. It was not among the samples sent out for perusal, but
after reading some of their efforts it is easy to complain. Let's see:
"Dear Grand Mal, After receiving your packet of vitriolic diatribes I,
a) found them to be in worse taste than Guyana jokes, b) read them to
my dog, who suddenly forgot his 12-year-old house training, or c)
found that there was more genuine humor in the Wall Street Journal."
There you have it, the Christmas spirit ala Grand Mal.

Amnesty Intl. hits China

LONDON - Amnesty International
has accused China of systematically
repressing political dissent through
social censure, imprisonment, mental
torture and execution since the 1949
Communist takeover.
In its first major report of China,
issued yesterday, the London-based
human rights group quoted official
Chinese documents indicating that the
number punished for straying from
official policy is in the millions.,
which advocated the release of political
prisoners around the world, and won
the Nobel Peace Prize in 1977, said its

'176-page report called "Political
Imprisonment in the People's Republic
of China" is the result of "several years
of intensive research."
Among the reforms urged in the
report is a "repeal of all laws
prescribing administrative or criminal
punishment for the nonviolent
expression of beliefs." It says the "laws
are loosely worded and have been
interpreted broadly, permitting large-
scale imprisonment on political
Amnesty said it sent a copy of the
report in June to China's ambassador to
Sweden for comment and decided in

August to publish the report when no
reply or comment was received. China
still has not responded, Amnesty said.
Arletta Laduguie, a researcher in the
organization's Asian department, told
the Associated Press: "Each political
campaign has contributed to broaden
the range of political offense because
each of them has defined new
categories of people who could be
imprisoned for political reasons
according to the politics of the period."
"Over the past three decades,
Chinese authorities have singled out for
repression such "class enemies" as
"landlords," "rich peasants,"
"counter-revolutionaries," 'bad
elements" and "rightists," Amnesty

Less hysterical and more calmly paced than the Garland-Mason version and
certainly more touching than the Streisand-Kristofferson version, this film
can be considered the most authentic and the best "Star" of all.
Wed: Cukor's Dinner at Eight


7:00 & 9:05






How about trying more carrots, fewer sticks?
Every time government wants to give America something
-yet doesn't want to tax people directly to pay for it-the
result is usually a law requiring business to pay the freight.
Too little gas or oil? Make business rebuild factories to
use coal. Utility bills too high? Make business subsidize
homeowners. Want cleaner air and water? Make indus-
try install additional layers of pollution control equip-,
ment. Want less risk for people at work? Make
business re-engineer every piece of equipment to
remove all human responsibility. The cost of all this
is enormous. Waster money results in inflation
and lost jobs.
Companies often grumble about the sock-it-to-
business situation. But we do get things done when
people demand them, and that's more than most insti-
tutions in this imperfect world. The fact is we are the
Goose That Lays the Golden Eggs.
It's not the responsibilities themselves that worry us.
It's the way in which new tasks are saddled on our backs.
We're hit with deadlines. Slapped with fines.
Handed detailed orders on exactly how we must
try to solve each problem, by people who aren't
familiar with science or engineering or finance.
We're forced to spend vast sums with no re-
course. Either these costs pour right on through
to the prices we have to charge, or we have to
eat the costs ourselves-leaving less to spend on
research, betterproducts and jobs.
What can America do about this situation?
We wish our government would use more carrots
and fewer sticks.
NM-- A-2 1"4d~ ~'~UC A ThJN'c 4 M C"'W"

Bashing the Goose That Lays the Golden Eggs is stupid.
We need more cooperation-not conflict-between busi-
ness and government. Just think how much more we'd all
get done if government would tap the experience and
imagination of business people, not force us to focus on
technicalities and procedures. Let's stop making the busi-
ness system spin its wheels trying to skid through a
minefield of fiendishly detailed, horribly long-winded
and hopelessly obscure regulations. If America will
set clear goals and provide a few carrots, business
will find the ways to get things done quickly
and economically.
Next time somebody says we ought to make busi-
ness do something, perhaps you'd like to ask
that person to think up a good carrot to use,
instead of a stick. It's important to you and the
17,000,000 other Americans who'll be joining the
hunt for jobs over the next ten years.
Good luck in your search for a job.
