Students will
Abe able to
verify SAT
test scores

Students who tape the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)
and the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) will
have the opportunity to verify their test results when
College Board makes answer sheets and scoring keys
available starting in September.
For a fee less than $4-the exact price has not been
determined yet-a student can buy a copy of the test's an-
swers from the board which formulates the tests.
According to board member Charles. Holloway, the
changes were implemented to give students "a better un-
derstariding of the test and the whole (admissions)
"THE TRUSTEES of the board have been moving toward
the opening up of the process," Holloway said. Input from
students on advisory committeees and public opinion were

other factors that lead to the changes in the testing
program, he added.
According to state law in New York, the tests must be
made public. This law has resulted in a reduction in the
number of test dates and an increase in test fees.
"We would rather do it (improve test answers and tests to
the students) voluntarily rather than by legislation,"
Holloway said.
THE SAMPLE TEST now included in the initial SAT test
packet will still be provided for students to practice ort
before taking the test. And Holloway also explained that a
complete sample test-instead only a few sample
questions-will accompany the PSAT-NMSQT test, which is
administered to high school sophomores and juniors.
Although the exact procedural methods have not been

Dorms host summer activities

The majority of the residents in the
University's 15 residence halls will be
moving out before May 2, but the dorms
will not be empty during the summer.
Plans for major renovations, and a
Onumber of summer activities will keep

residents and staff during the spring
and summer terms.
Associate Director of Housing Norm
Snustad said most of the residence halls
would remain open to house student
groups and business conferences.
SPRING AND summer-term studen-
ts will be housed in West Quad. "We ex-

pect about 350 residents for spring
term, and about 500 for summer," said
West Quad Building Director Leon
STUDENTS MAY apply for a dorm
room in the Housing Office in the
Student Activities Building.
The majority of students who sign up
for dorm rooms will be freshpersons
and sophomores, but "one house will be
reserved for graduate students, and we
expect to fill it," West said. About 100
graduate students will be placed in
Chicago House in West Quad. Un-
- dergraduates will be assigned to three
other houses, which will be staffed by
resident advisors, in West Quad, West

Cambridge House in West Quad will
be occupied by conferences beginning
the third week in May. The house will
be managed like a hotel, with meals
available, but not included in the price
of a room.
FRESHPERSON orientation, which
has been held in South Quad for the past
three years, will be held in East Quad
this summer. Heidi Winick, a
spokeswoman for the orientation office,
said East Quad will house ap-
proximately 4,000 incoming freshper-
sons and 1,000 transfer students for
three-day periods, between June 15 and

Although plans have not been
finalized yet, Winick said orientation
programs this summer would be
similar to previous years. Orientees
will, however, be shown a new film,
Maize, produced by an advanced film
class on campus. The film provides
several different perspectives of life at
the University through interviews with
first-year students, Winick said.
This summer, South Quad will be
filled with youth groups, sports camps,
cheerleaders, and other groups.
Snustad said South Quad will be staffed
with RAs to organize activities and give
directions, a service that has not been
provided to youth groups in previous
SNUSTAD SAID a wide variety of
University-affiliated sports camps
would be held this summer. The
athletic and conference groups that
stay in University housing "must have
some kind of educational relationship to
the University," he said.

Republican Convention in Detroit will

beginning July 12.

encouraed to put their "hands on"
In January 1979, City Council granted
the Hands-On Museum Organization
permission to begin planning a "par-
ticipatory" museum in the historic Fire
Station building at Fifth and Huron
The hands-on museum concept is
based on the theory that experience,
rather than memory or simply ex-
plaining and viewing, increases a

on, climb through, take apart, and try
on various exhibits.
THE IDEA FOR a hands-on museum
in Ann Arbor was proposed in 1978 by
local resident Cynthia Yao. "Being a
parent, you have to find things for your
kids to do, especially in a University
areas where there are mostly college
A number of Ann Arbor townspeople
and University faculty helped Yao draft
a proposal for a local hands-on

Psychology Lorraine Nadelman.
Last year Nadelman proposed that
the group construct several par-
ticipatory exhibits in order to publicize
and raise funds for the museum. Since
it is difficult to secure funds for
children's projects, Nadelman was
pleased that the project could celebrate
the International Year of the Child
(IYC), and be funded by a grant on
behalf of the University IYC commit-
The museum organization received a
$2250 IYC grant last fall, as well as sub-
stantial community support. Volun-
teers have organized committees to
create portable exhibits, and donate
materials and labor..
"THAT THE exhibits are portale is
imnportant," said Nadleman. "They
educate and infdrm people': ofthe
museum and the fund drive we have for
it, and serve to show what this new
museum will hold."

A Utility Goes Public:

ly ex-

Take just a couple of minutes
and look at it from our point of
You're a public utility in
Michigan. You're the sole
source of electricity for about
a million families. And the
total 1979 electric bill for an
average one of those families
added up to almost $300. This
year it will be even more.
The rising cost of energy is
the reason you, as the utility,
are so concerned about all of
the factors that together make
up your customers' bills. You
don't want that family to pay
any more for its electricity
than is necessary. That brings
you to a problem- the cost of
environmental protection.
As one real-life example,

mental rules require you to
install an additional precipita-
tor in hopes of raising the
removal efficiency to ninety-
nine percent- at a cost of
$24 million.
That additional four percent
efficiency will have essentially
no effect on the actual air
quality around the plant.
So you decide to fight it. Not
because the cost will reduce
your profits- it won't: by law,
a public utility passes that kind
of costs on to its customers.
And not because you don't care
about a clean environment-
you do: that's one reason you
installed the precipitator in
the first place. The air around
your plant is already much
cleaner than the Environmen-
4.l P.1D.rn.4-arn an A nn rrmin

fight it because it's just too
much money for too little bene-
fit for the families you serve.
But, you lose. And you have to
install the equipment.
In 1979, over 10 percent of
the electric bills of an average
family you served went for en-
vironmental protection. And
the money families pay for
environmental protection will
increase considerably in the
future. If that money strains
the average family budget, it
may well rip apart the budgets
of people on fixed incomes.
You have to take a stand
A utility must be as sensi-
tive to the needs of its custo-
mers- to the complex needs of ,
the families it serves- as it is
to the needs of the environ-
