'U' wins energy research grant

By DENISE FOX

The University has been selected
over other midwestern universities
to receive funds for a five year, $1
million solar energy research and
training program.
According to U.S. Rep. Carl Pur-
sell, (R-Mich.) the federal Energy
Research and Deyelopment Admin-
istration (ERDA) will allocate $200,-
000 for the first year of the Midwest
Program for Solar Energy Metrolog-
ical Research, and funds for the sub-
sequent years are expected to be ap-
propriated. In addition, the Univer-
sity will contribute $9,108 of its own
funds for the program.
HEADED BY Donald Portman,
professor of. atmospheric sciences,
who submitted the winning proposal,
the program will be centered in the
Space-Physics Research building on

North Campus.
According to Portman, the re-
search will involve measuring the
amount of solar energy received at
different points in the region at vari-
ous times in the year.
"The purpose of the research is to
design efficient solar collectors,"
Portman said. He added that in the
future it may be possible to build
solar heating and cooling devices
under the program.
THE TRAINING portion of the
program will be especially beneficial
to students, since it will create new
learning opportunities.
"It will establish new courses in
the degree program dealing with the
study and measure of solar radia-

tion," Portman said. Short, technical
courses will be established for spe-
cial students, he added.
THE RESEARCH program is ex-
pected to begin in October, but the
training portion will begin next year,
Pursell said.
Pursell said he considered the
ERDA grant to be one of the best
grants in the country. The new
program can't help but strengthen
the University's science department,
he added.
"It's one of the most meritorious
grants," Pursell said. He believes
there will be more grants in store for
the University, he said.
"THERE WAS TOUGH, tough, com-

petition and we came out on top," he
said. "ERDA believed we were in thew
(country's) top 15 in our science de-
partment and now we may be moving
to the top five."k
The center will service the mid-I
west region, which includes Michi-:
gan, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, Nebras-
ka, Minnesota, North Dakota, South
Dakota, and Wisconsin, according to
Portman.
No other university in Michigan:
was considered for the grant.
The country was divided into eight:
regions for the program, with $200,-
000 awarded to winning universities:
in each region.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - Riot police with dogs
arrested 1,200 students at the black
university of Fort Hare yesterday to
block a memorial service for Steve
Biko, the black leader who died after
a hunger strike in a prison hospital.
The service was the first of several
planned by white students, black na-
tionalists and churchmen across
South Africa in a wave of anger at the
death of the 30-year-old activist,

Agood spot for
a cozy rendezvous
after class, after the theater, after work... after anything.

described by one newspaper as
"perhaps the most important black
leader in South Africa."
THE PROTESTS were fueled by
questions as to whether the Prisons
Department had made any effort to
save Biko's life.
A spokesman for Fort Hare Uni-
versity, 350 miles south of here, said
the white principal had turned down
a request from the students to
suspend lectures for the service.
But the students went ahead and
gathered on the rugby field, singing
black nationalist songs. They were
quickly surrounded by police.
OFFERING NOresistance, the stu-
dents were shepherded to a grand-
stand and taken away in police
vehicles. Witnesses said students
made black power salutes as they
were led away but they reported no
violence.
Officials said the' students were
detained under the Riotous Assem-
blies Act, which requires official
permission for most public gather-
ings of more than three people.
Biko, the-30-year-old founder of the
black consciousness movement in
South Africa, died Monday after
what the government said was an
eight-day hunger strike. He had been
detained three weeks earlier, and
was the 21st black to die in police
custody in 18 months.
AT A PROTEST meeting at the
almost all-white University of Cape
Town, liber-al newspaper editor Don-
ald Woods called on -Prisons Minister
James Kruger to resign if inquest

nemorial
findings showed that his department
had not done anything to prevent
Biko's death.
"This is the big one, the one they
can't get away with," said Woods.:
"This is the death they will not be
able to explain away."
Kruger told the Transvaal provin-
cial congress of the ruling National
party Wednesday that Biko was not
force-fed during his hunger strike
because prison guards would-have
been accused of brutality. He said it
was Biko's "democratic right" not to
eat.
BUT A spokesman for the minister
said yesterday that Biko wvas fed
intravenously before he died. The
spokesman gave no details, and:
Kruger was not available for com-
ment.
Kruger also rejected demands:
from white liberals for a special in-
quest into Biko's death. He said
inquests by magistrates are suffi-
cient.
Biko's widow rejected the govern-
ment's assertion that her husband
died of a hunger strike, especially as-
the government said he began his
fast only eight days earlier.
The findings of a state-ordered
autopsy, witnessed by Biko family
doctors, were not expected until next
week.
The death touched off a flood of
denunciations in South Africa an4
abroad. Much of the criticism was
focused on Kruger'and his statement
Wednesday: "I am not glad and I am,
not sorry about Mr. Biko. He leaves
me cold."
