And perhaps no one at the
University is more familiar
with the perils of parapsychol-
ogy study than Winette.
"It's a fascinating thing, but
to many people it has a negative
connotation," she said. "Even
the word itself - parapsychol-
ogy - insinuates that it's kindI
of behind psychology, not quite
its own world yet."
QHE RECALLS, as a freshwo-
man, being. warned that
parapsychology wasa "fraud"
by her professor, and later be-
ing warned, not to consider tak-
ing up parapsychology as a pro-
fession
Graduate student John Evans
is hopeful that the results of
parapsychological research will
ultimately be accepted in aca-
demic circles. "I think the Uni-'
versity is committed to data
rather than to a certain per-

spective," he said. "It's not go-
ing to be the kind of place that
encourages this kind of re-
search, but it isn't going to be
the place that will stand in your
way if you're really determined
to do it."
1VTO ONE, however, has yet
volunteered ti pick up the
ball Winette is about to drop.
Winette will probably leave the
University soon for graduate
school elsewhere.
AND ALTHOUGH Evans hasI
proposed a related course in
the Residential College, no ac-
tion has been taken to include
it in the time schedule yet.
"Michigan claims to be a so-
phisticated, multi-faceted uni-
versity, and I think it's sad -
almost embarrassing," Win-!
ette said. "I frankly don't think1
they care if anyone teaches the
course."

A career in lw-
without low school.
What can you do with only a bachelor's degree?
Now there is a way t1 bridge the gap between an
undergraduate education and a challenging, respon-
sible career. The Lawyer's Assistant is able to do work
traditionally done by lawyers.
Three months of intensive training can give you
the skills-the courses are taught by lawyers. You
choose one of the six courses offered-choose the city
in which you want to work.
Since 1970, The Institute for Paralegal Training
has placed more than 700 graduates in law firms,
banks, and corporations in over 60 cities.
If you are a student of high academic standing
and are interested in a career as a Lawyer's Assistant,
we'd like to meet you.
Contact your placement office for an interview with
our representative.
