State
court
upholds
affirmaie
action

LANSING (UPI)- The Michigan Court of Appeals
yesterday reversed a lower court ruling against key
state affirmative action programs, saying sex and
race may be considered in promotion policies
designed to counteract discrimination.
The unanimous ruling overturned a finding that the
programs are blatantly unconstitutional and retur-
ned the case to the Ingham County Circuit Court for
further hearings on their actual impact.
THE RULING came in a suit brought against the
state Civil Service Commission by the Michigan
Corrections Organization-a union representing
prison guards.
The MCO charged some of its members were
passed over for transfers or promotions because of
two programs-expanded certification and
rescheduled examinations.
The expanded certification program, considered
crucial to increasing representation of women and*

- blacks in state employment ranks, allows female and
minority candidates who receive passing grades on
civil service exams to be promoted over others with
better scores.
IT CAN BE invoked only when minorities and
women are underrepresented, there is some question
about the fairness of the selection process and of-
ficials belieye the black or female candidates are at
least as qualified as their competitors.
Ingham County Circuit Judge Robert Bell said the
programs are unconstitutional .because they give
special consideration to certain candidates based
solely on race or sex.
The appeals court, in reversing, cited the famous
U.S. Supreme Court Bakke case as sanctioning use of
race as one factor under a special admissions
program.

WASHINGTON, (AP) - President
Reagan accused the Soviet Union
yesterday of trying to disrupt Western
allies through "gross distortions" of his
nuclear strategy. He bluntly told
Moscow that he would "regard any
military threat to Europe as a threat to
the United States."
Reagan assailed as "an outright
deception" any suggestion that
America might consider limiting a
nuclear conflict to Europe. "We regard
any military threat to Europe as a
threat to the Unlited States itself," he
declared.
THE PRESIDENT said his remarks
were prompted by "several propagan-
da statements" by the Soviet Union in
recent days "that seek to drive a wedge
between the United States and some of
our closest friends in Europe."I
But his statement also served to
clarify some of his own recent remarks
about nuclear strategy which prompted
jitters among NATO allies.
The president's remarks were
relayed in an unusualrconferencercall
from Air Force One to the Washington
bureaus of The Associated Press and
United Press International as the chief
executive was enroute to. Cancun,
Mexico, for a North-Sourth summit.
"THE SUGGESTION that the United
States could even consider fighting a
nuclear war at Europe's expense is an
outright deception," Reagan said.
Reagan's statement came on the
heels of Soviet President Leonid
Breshnev's demand in a Tuesday inter-
view with the Soviet news agency Tass
that the American leader should make
clear that any notion of a nuclear ex-
change is "criminal."
Reagan touched off the sequence last
Friday when he was asked by a group of
editors at the White House if there could
be a limited nucleaf war in Europe or if

it would escalate into a global, super-
power conflict. The president began by
saying "I don't honestly know."
HE THEN WENT on to say: "I could
see where you could have an exchange
of tactical weapons against troops in
the field without it bringing either one
of the major powers into pushing the
button."

The study of Aikido is much
deeper than the mastery of
pure physical technique. The
founder, Morihei Uyershiba,
wanted all students to delve
into the depths of'the philos-
ophy of Aikido, and to achieve
harmony in life and unification
with nature. The essence of
Aikido is oneness of spirit,
mind, and body, and its true
meaning can be revealed only
through practice.

their tumbling and on an estimate of
their abilities to relate to a crowd,"
Seymour said.
Tryouts for the team are held each
March. About 25 men attempt to make
the 12-man squad. "The turnout was
large and the caliber was high" last
March, Seymour said. Veteran team
members must try out again each year.
DNURIN'G''. THE season, the
cheerleaders, most of whom have a
gymnastics background, practice nine
hours per week.
One question the squad often hears is,
whether they should combine routines
with the pom pon girls. "It would be
like mixing oil and water," Seymour
said. "The girls are oriented toward
dancing and none of us are very good at
dancing. Instead, the guys are best at
acrobatics."
SAID NWINSTON: "The additional
physical strength that the all-male
squad has enables us to perform more
dangerous and dynamic stunts. The
pyramids that we do are higher than
the ones that are done by male and
female groups together."
When not practicing their stunts, the
cheerleaders perform managerial
duties and draw sketches for new acts.
This year's repertoire includes so many
stunts, said Seymour, that even over a
period of four games, there isn't enough

time to do all of them.
The difficulty of the stunts is limited
by statements in a University insuran-
ce policy. An effort is made to have
each member star in at least one stunt.
Most of the squad's fans are young
and middle-aged women. When asked
if they had aniy groupies, the guys
regretfully replied, "No," and then
jokingly mentioned plans for holding
'groupie tryouts.
