Bunny look-alike
It was just one of those incredible coincidences,
but it sure got an LSA co-ed into un-bare-able trou-
ble with her folks. Last Friday, the Detroit Free
Press ran a photo of one of Playboy photographer
David Chan's aspiring models, Caprice Wolter. Al-
though Chan has since left town, he has left his
imprint on the minds of at least one set df parents
in northern Michigan. Caprice is an exact double
of their 20-year-old daughter, and the unfortunate
co-ed, who asked not to be identified, is distraught
over the mix-up, as are her unbelieving parents.
So Caprice dear, help your double out - your look-
alike requests that you send as photo of yourself to
the Daily City Desk before her parents disown her.
Reverse discrimination
Affirmative action programs for minorities and
women could grind to a complete halt, according
to Law School Dean Theodore St. Antoine, if the
U.S. Supreme Court strikes down a "special ad-
missions" program at a California University. The
University of California-Davis Medical School case,
which the court has agreed to rule on, is basically
a question of reverse discrimination aaginst WASP-
ish types. St. Antoine said Wednesday an adverse
decision in the Supreme Court could have the ef-
fect of "virtually eliminating" minority enroll-
ment, especially among blacks and Chicanos, at
the nation's law, medical and other selective pro-
fessional schools. The ruling could also hurt insti-
tutional hiring policies he said, virtually wiping
out the gains of affirmative action programs over
the past decade.
Housing-Conncil deadline
This is the last day to file for the race for Hous-
ing Council posts. The positions of presidency, vice-

An early start
If your fourth grade kid brother or sister seems
a little more rosy-cheeked and smiley than usual,
HEW may have the explanation. According to the

federal agency's survey of fourth, fifth and sixth
grade children, nearly one half of them consider
themselves "ongoing users of alcohol." The study
was done in 11 unidentified communities on tV
west coast, where eight per cent of the students
drink at least once a week, and the majority of
fourth graders had had at least one experience -
good or bad - with alcohol. Since it is unlikely
that the owner of the corner store is going to hand
over the liquor elixir to the kiddies in exchange
for piggy bank pennies, the study concludes that
mom, dad, big brother or big sis are responsible
for much of the elementary school-age drinking.

BIRMINGHAM - The last patches of snow glistened in the
afternoon sun outside Adams Elementary School. A group of bois-
terous third graders filled the playground, taking turns on the slide
and fighting for a place on the swings.
Less than 100 yards away, the school flag flew at half-mast in
front of the red brick building in memory of sixth grader Timothy
King, the seventh victim in a series of unsolved child slayings
which has shocked suburban Oakland County.
BIRMINGHAM residents took extra precautions yesterday
for the safety of their own children following the discovery of
Tim's body Tuesday in a shallow ditch in Livonia. Cars lined
the narrow street opposite Adams School at dismissal time as
parents nervously waited for their children to emerge from the

SACUA reviews 23
for Rhodes' position
Twenty-three persons - nine from within the University -
are under consideration to replace Frank Rhodes as Michigan's
vice-president for academic affairs.
Rhodes will take overbtheupresidency of Cornell University
and is expected to leave by July 1.
"We are just now receiving nominations," said Prof. Brymer
Williams, chairman of the Senate Advisory Committee on Uni-
versity Affairs (SACUA). President Robben Fleming assigned
the nine-member faculty group to screen applicants for the post
after Rhodes announced his resignation February 16.
The names of all applicants are being kept confidential.
President Fleming set a deadline of April 30 for nomina-
tions to reach his office, and asked SACUA to give him a list
of five or six finalists by "mid May." Fleming's office has ad-
vertised the post in The Chronicle of Higher Education and
The Black Scholar, and has notified several national women's
academic groups of the opening.
Williams said SACUA would include student, woman and
minority representatives in the search process. He said the
Michigan Student Assembly (MSA), the Women's Commission,
and the Minority Commission are being encouraged to nominate
people for the vice-presidential post.
He stated that SACUA has not yet worked out details for
student, minority, and women's participation in the actual screen-
ing process, but promised all three groups would be "consulted."

ANN WEBB,whose six-year-old son Mark is a first grader
at Adams, said neighbors warned her about the series of Oakland

County child murders when she moved to Birmingham from North
Carolina a few months ago.
' But she added, "You can't appreciate (the fear) until you're
actually living in it."
She said she still allows her sonto play outside, but added,
"I have to see him out of the window or know he's inside in a
neighbor's house."
SOME OF THE parents waiting outside the school had chil-
dren who knew the King boy.
"My son was good friends with Timmy," Polly Coltman said,
crying softly. "They played together (last) Wednesday afternoon."
Timothy King's parents reported him missing ,that evening when
he failed to return home from a nearby pharmacy.
Colter said that prior to the disappearance and murder of the
11-year-old, she permitted her son to walk home alone from
school. Now, she insists on driving him or having him walk home
with a large group of children.

Dorm rent late, fine

Dorm residents who placed their money
in escrow in sympathy with the recent
AFSCME strike can breathe a sigh of re-
University Housing Director John Feld-
kamp said yesterday that students who have
been assessed fines for not getting their
rent in on time because of the strike won't
have to pay them. Late fines can be can-
celled with a mere walk to the Student
Activities Building and a normal-fee rent
check made out to the University in hand.
STUDENTS, according to Tenants' Un-
ion (TU) representative Peter Downs, may

leave their money in escrow or delay pay-
ment if they think the University should
reimburse them for services curtailed by
the strike.
Feldkamp was not encouraging on the
question or rebates.
"To date, only one rebate has been rec-
ognized - the vegetarian meals for Alice
Lloyd weren't 'served'" he said. "There will
probably be an adjustment for that. Stu-
dents should go to their building director.
They're the initial collectors of tnformation.
The University will make the final decision
on the rebate."
HOLD CREDITS won't be applied unless

the whole tuition bill is not paid by March
31. An injunction filed by TU will be drop-
ped if the University does not demand the
five-dollar late fee and does not prevent'
students from registering for spring term.
Downs mentioned that Don Greenspon,
a TU lawyer, would represent anyone who
thinks he or she deserves-a rebate. "It looks
very clear to him (Greenspon) that there
is a clause in the contract to rescind any
money for services not provided in the con-
tract. He thinks there's no way we can
lose," Downs explained.
Some students who were willing to put
their money in escrow could not because
they had already sent it to the University'.

The 26-day strike by campus service and maintenance workers
had to be broken, an administrator admitted earlier this week,
but the University had no intention to break their union.
Chief University negotiator William Neff said he never took
the frequent charges of "union-busting" very seriously.
"You know, you have two options in settling a strike," Neff
said in an interview. "Either you concede to the demands of the
union or break the strike."
"We certainly weren't going to concede to those high economic
The walkout ended at midnight last Sunday after members
of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Em-
ployes (AFSCME Local 1583) ratified a two-year contract with
the University.
Neff said the administration decided it would simp!y wait out
the strike, seeing what steps AFSCME would take.
"'We were disappointed that it had to go on that long," he said.
"There are a number of things we could have done to have
actively gone out and broken the strike," Neff mused. "We didn't
go out and make an appeal to the membership. We didn't say, 'Hey,

The negotiator said he had dealt with AFSCME as with any
other union: "fairly, but firmly."
"Some people interpret firmness to be a negative attitude
toward the union. It clearly - in our opinion - is not."
Neff maintained that the union placed itself in a destructive
situation, and despite many opportunities to get out, AFSCME
leaders insisted on plunging deeper into trouble.
"We all thought we had an agreement on Feb.. 15," Neff said
