on an attacker should another assault
be committeed.
These two practical measures, the
anti-rape effort and the anonymous re-
porting system, reflect an evolving at-
titude of frankness towards rape that
is also apparent in Michigan's new rape
law.
THE STATUTE, which became ef-
fective on April 1, is unique in the na-
tion. It divides sevual assault into four
varying degrees of severity, depend-
ing on the manner in which the as-
sault was conducted.
The new code attaches no gender to

either the "attacker" or the "victim,"
thus. making it possible for males to
prosecute under the law.
Furthermore, it does not require evi-
dence that the victim resisted attack,
to establish the occurrence of a rape,
as the old law did.
OF COURSE, one element necessary
to the smooth operation of a criminal

School board candidates
offer a wide spectrum of
s olutions to student issues

By JEFF RISTINE
Second of a three-part series
An alarming number of stu-
dents in the public school system
today are "turned off" to the
whole educational process. In-
stead of enjoying their daily
lessons in reading, writing and
mathematics, m a n y simply
count the weeks until the school
year is over.'
Despite these seemingly in-
herent problems, the ten can-
didates in next Monday's school
board election hardly agree on
the precise needs of students in
the 70's. The seven men and
three women seeking the three
available board seats look at
the student in several different
ways.
TO SOME, the students are
"future adults," and should be
given meaningful responsibili-
ties as a matter of course. But
other candidates suggest the
pupils are confused, helpless
children who must be tightly
directed by more mature ele-
ments-their parents.
D. Stephen McCargar, a bus

driver for the Ann Arbor Trans-
portation Authority, criticizes
the current school discipline
policy and looks at it from a
student's point of view.
"There are some students in
the school system that have
very little respect for the people
who are meting out the disci-
pline because they view them
as either elitist or racist or re-
moved from the needs and sen-
sitivities of young people," he
says.
McCARGAR goes on to rec-
ommend development of a
school staff that is more at-
tuned to students' needs - re-
moving, he says, the necessity
for a sat-r i n g e n t discipline
policy.
He also feels the board
should put more weight on ad-
visory opinions from students
in their decision-making. "A
community has to listen to the
people that the education sys-
tem is supposed to be serving,"
McCargar says.

admissions steady
By BILL TURQUE
The barren economic condition of the state and a de-
creasing federal committent to medical education are
some of the reasons why the University's Medical School
will be accepting only 202 new students next fall, 35 less
than last year.
r; c"Those figures are, in all probability, essentially cor-
rect," said Dr. Colin Campbell, director of admissions "u
for the Medical School.
CAMPBELL SAID, however, that the classification of 35
fourth-year Inteflex students as first year medical students
will bring the number back to 237, so that the Medical
School class of 1979 will have no fewer graduates than in';
previous years.
Inteflex, an abbreviation for Integrated, Flexible, Medical
Program, is a special six-year curriculum combining pre-
medical and medical courses. Six years after graduating
from high school, Inteflex students acquire medical de-
greeny
The program's first class of students, who have com-
pleted three years as of this spring, will be designated first-
year medical students so that they may qualify for certain
federal scholarship funding, according to Medical School
Dean John Gronvall.
