Enrollment up
A total of 46,680 students are enrolled
at the University this fall, 225 more
than a year ago, University Infor-
mation Services reports.

Teshome Wagaw, professor of
education at the University of
Michigan, has authored "Education in
Ethiopia: Prospect and Retrospect,"
the first and currently the only book on
the subject of educational change in
Ethiopia.
The book, published by the University
of Michigan Press, analyzes the
development of education in Ethiopia
from its earliest days to the present and
"is an invaluable source for those in-
terested in Ethiopian culture and
education, those engaged in research in
comparative education, and those in-

terested in the process of African and
Third World modernization."
Wagaw recently read a paper titled
"An Ethiopian Perspective of the
Diaspora"~ at the Second New World
Festival of the African Diaspora held at
Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Earlier this year, Wagaw visited
several major African cities and
UNESCO headquarters in Paris as part
of a three-week field study tour to
gather material for a forthcoming book
on African social and educational
development problems over the last 20
years.

Financially ailing Wayne County
government to receive state aid

From AP and UPI
LANSING - A bill designed to
reorganize Wayne County and sub-
sequently stabilize its dismal financial
situation was approved yesterday by
the Senate Municipalties and Elections
Committee.
The House Appropriations Commit-
tee approved a bill to speed delivery to
the county of $4.8 million originally con-

tained in a controversial "Christmas
Tree" bill still before the panel.
WAYNE COUNTY, the nation's third
most populous county, is going broke
and its employees face layoffs and the
possibility they will get IOUs instead of
paychecks today.
The county has only $400,000 in its
general fund, 25 per cent of the $1.6
million needed to pay country workers,

Treasurer Raymond Wojtowicz said
yesterday.
And officials said the payless
paydays could continue through mid-
January, when 1980 tax revenues are
expected.
WAYNE COUNTY'S financial woes
stem from a debt-ridden hospital and
what state officials call a leaderless
and chaotic bureaucracy.

UNION CONFERENCE HERE IN JAN.:

National labor leaders to meet
ontinue iron Vage:_

t

Oct. 21
P.M.

THE CONFERENCE will also
feature many leaders from a diverse
body of major labor organizations, such
as William Winpisinger, president of
the International Association of
Machinists,, Michael Harrington,
national chairman of the Democratic
Socialist Organizing Committee, Joyce
Miller, vice-president of the
Amalgamated Clothing and Textile
Workers, and James Farmer,
executive director of the Coalition of
American Public Employees.
The committee is waiting for a con-
firmation from UAW President
Douglas Fraser, whom the committee
hopes will participate in the conferen-
ce.
In addition, the conference steering
committee includes state Rep. Perry
Bullard (D-Ann Arbor), and U.S. Rep.
John Conyers (D-Detroit).

conference," said Jules Bernstein,
associate counsel for the Laborers' In-
ternational Union of North America,
who will participate in the January con-
ference. "It will be an important in-
teraction between intellectuals,
working trade unionists and students to
honestly examine the role the labor
movement will play in shaping the
future of America," 'he added.
The event is the brainchild of Shapiro
and Finkelstein, who said they started
throwing around the idea of the con-
ference last May.
"We saw a need for something that
would make a connection between labor
and students," Finkelstein explained.

"We also saw it as a way to indoctrinate
some of our ideas into the system."
Shapiro said the main purpose of
SEED is to hold the conference.
Whether the committee would continue
to function afterwards "depends on the
energy of the people involved, and any
new interest that might be generated"
he explained.
SEED has been able to raise most of
the needed capital through con-
tributions from different organizations,
including $1,000 appropriated by
Michigan Student Assembly last
Tuesday. Shapiro said if the committee
is not able to raise enough money, ad-
mission may be charged.

port and enthusiasm within the group.
In addition, both the alumni and the
University personnel associated with
the Greeks must realize that this type of
venture needs almost daily attention,"
he said.
Most fraternities at the University
want to be recognized by the Fraternity
Co-ordinating Council (FCC), an
organization funded solely by the $100
annual dues required from each frater-
nity.
According to FCC President Dave
DePoy, the council is "basically aco-
ordinating body which offers
suggestions and advice to our member
fraternities. We provide a forum for,
idea-sharing, some programming
ideas, plus a unified voice on campus.
At this point in time, we do not have the
authority to, for example, place a
fraternity on probation. But this
situation may be changed in the
future."
DEPOY SAID he thinks Acacia has a
good chance of making a comeback
though this isn't always the case. "I
would discourage a fraternity from re-
establishing if I didn't think they
adequately met the necessary
criteria," DePoy said. "I do not have
the power to say, 'You cannot start a

fraternity here,' and so I would
probably advise thpm to just go about it
in a different way." He added that the
council would in any case help the
struggling fraternity.
Both DePoy and Piernik agree
students are more conservative now,
and strive for more traditional goals
than they did a decade ago. There is
nothing more traditional and time-
honored, they say, than membership in
a fraternity.
"So far, we have identified twelve
men, but we are still looking for more,"
says Piernik of Acacia. "We encourage
men to think carefully about pledging
Acacia because it is not as easy as en-
tering into an already established
fraternity. We tell them to think about
the responsibilities and obligations to
which they are committing themselves.
Then, if we think that they are the type
of person we are looking for, we will in-
vite them to join.
"A fraternity offers friendship, a
group to work within, and a chance to
involve yourself with other facets of the
University community. It helps people
mature, accept responsibility, and gain
confidence in their own interpersonal
skills," he said. "Also, the peer support
encourages good academic performan-
ce.
