While Milliken said he had
nat yet given serious considera-
tion to a successor for Linde-
mer, he indicated he would cer-
tainly consider student appoint-
ments for such positions.
A SPOKESMAN for the gov-
ernor said the list of prospec-
tive appointees w a s "quite
lengthy, more than a dozen
names." He added that "it is
certainly within the realm of
possibility that there are stu-
dents on the list"
Korpi's nomination to MTU's
Board of Control had rough go-
ing through the Senate because
of h i s threatened reprisals
against the editor of the school's

wrote a series of editorials op-
posing Korpi's nomination.
Roth said yesterday he op-
posed Korpi's nomination be-

giving to his nomination.
"Ile catse into our offices one

ROTH SAID Korpi also issued
a press release onstudent gov-

procedings were underway for
Roth's recall as editor of The

called "a bunch of hogwash."
Korpi was unavailable for com-

Roth added that Korpi has
attempted to link him with a
number of questionable activi-
ties, including alleged incidents
of firebombing, which Roth in-
sists are complete fiction.
"I'm really gong-ho about a
