Med school
may be cut
by 2-5%,
*University medical school enrollment
should be cut 25 percent in 1983 if state
officials want to ward off a projected
physician surplus, -according to the
state council of medical school deans.
In a report issued last month, the
Michigan Medical Sohools'd Council of
Deans proposed a 14 percent overall
reduction in 1983 enrollment at the
state's four medical schools.
FACED WITH a projected surplus of
2hysicians in the next decade and- a
current crowding of the state's medical
schools, the Governor's office of Health
Wand Medical Affairs asked the council
to propose enrollment reductions.
The council would prefer to maintain
present medical school enrollment
levels, said Chairman Myron M9agen,
but has suggested the course of action
stated in the report if the state decides

If schools arew forced to cut
9 enrollments, however, they should con-,
tinue to. receive the-current level of
state support, he said. The council em-
phasized that funding cuts severely
would impair the quality of medical
University Medical School Dean John
Gronvall said the University's medical .
school currently is underfunded on an
appropriation-per-student level com-
pared to schools in other states. An
enrollment reduction could help
alleviate the problem, l'e said.
A CUT IN class size also would free
funds for research that could benefit
the state significantly, Gronvall added.
Following Gov. William Milliken's plan
to diversify the state's economy, sub-
stantial contributions could be made in
the area of molecular biology, he said.
Jay Endsley, director of the states
health and medical affairs office said
the faculty-student ratio in state medical
schools has been increasing for quite

public support for the social sciences.
ISR director hopeful
ab'out future sport.

An Ypsilanti police officer was
arraigned yesterday on charges that he
shot and killed a 18-year-old man
following a scuffle in an Ypsilanti street
early Sunday.
Michael O'Neill, a 1981 Ypsilanti High
School graduate, was shot twice by
Patrolman Michael Rae, who was off
duty at the time, after the two had beenw
arguing in the street at Michigan
Avenue and Hamilton in Ypsilanti.
WASHTENAW County Prosecutor
William Delhey said he is bringing
charges against Rae because, after
seeing "the overall view of the eviden-
ce, (I think) he's guilty of man-
slaughter." ,
Rae, 28, has been on the force for two-
and-one-half years and is a 1975
Eastern Michigan University political
science graduate and a former EMU
security officer.
He was arraigned before 14th district

court Judge Thomas Shea who sched-
uled the preliminary examination for
Nov. 12 and set bail at $2500. Rae, who
was released after posting bond, could
receive a maximum of 15 years in
prison if convicted.
DELHEY SAID he had "no comment
on the factual content of the case" but
added that he intends to call of 17 of the
witnesses at the preliminary hearing so
the public can hear the facts. Conflic-
ting testimonies from these witnesses
led to a fullscale investigation of the
shooting by the Michigan State police at
Delhey's request.
According to reports, the shooting oc-
curred at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday after
O'Neill and Rae had been arguing over
whether O'Neill should move his car
from the middle of the street while he
was talking to someone in another car
next to his.
O'Neill and Rae apparently began
shouting and pushing each other and

then Rae drew his revolver and fired
two shots, witnesses said.
FRIENDS OF O'Neill and com-
munity members have reacted strongly
to the incident. Gordon Konz, who lived
next door to O'Neill for 12 years, helped
organize a protest march after the
funeral Wednesday. He and about 200
other, mourners walked one-half mile
from Recreation Park to the city police
station, held a half-hour sit-in, then
"said a prayer and went home," he
Konz, 21, said they were protesting
the way the situation was being handled
by city officials.
Between 50 and 100 protesters
carrying candles walked into the mid-
dle of a Ypsilanti City Council meeting
Monday, according to councilman Faizi
Husain. They were concerned that
some of the facts of the incident might
be covered up because a police officer
was involved, he said.

The Reagan administration's initial
stance against public support of social
science research may be a blessing in
disguise, Institute for Social Research
Director Thomas Juster said last
The sudden possibility of receiving
virtually no federal financial support
prompted intensive lobbying efforts
by social scientists across the nation,
Juster said. And now Congress may
be more conducive than ever to social
science support.
"I DON'T SEE any reason to be that
gloomy about the long-term prospects
(of government-funded social science
research)," Juster said in a speech
before the local chapter of the
American Statistical Association.
But in an interview after the lecture
Juster said the short run environment
is "certainly not very cheerful" for
social sciences - even at the Univer-
sity's prestigious ISR.
About three-quarters of ISR's funds
come from the public sector, so any
significant change in federal support
could damage the data base with.

which the social scientists work, he
said. However, Juster said he doubts
current cuts will damage ISR's in-
formation base.
AN INTERRUPTION in the collec-
tion of data would be a great set-back
to the growing' social sciences, Juster
said. If the Reagan administration's
original cuts had passed Congress the
base would have been seriously affec-
ted, he said.
Now the administraton has
"significantly backed off" from its
initial plan to almost eliminate finan-
cing of social science research, but
there is still no final decision on the
extent of the cuts, Juster said.
Juster said he persopally wrote
about 10 reports of 10 to 25 pages each
in the lobbying effort to change
Reagan's "serious attempt to simply
eliminate the social sciences from the
public sector."
Eventually the social. scientists
scored a big victory-in the Rouse when
it approved larger National Science
Foundation budget and included a
clause favorable to sponsorship of
social science research.

Dorms add meal hours

Central and North campus students
won't have to go to Markley anymore to
take advantage of continuous meal ser-
In response to the plan's popularity
the expanded hours, including break-
fast, will be offered at Bursley and West
ad beginning Nov. 30, housing of-
ficials announced yesterday.
SINCE THE beginning of the term,
the Markley cafeteria has been serving
meals from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. for any
student with a regular meal card.
Many students have said they think
the continuous meal plan is a good idea,
but most of the students at central
campus dorms aren't using the ser-
vice because it is inconvenient to go to
Norm Sunstad, associate housing
director, said the expanded hours have

increased labor costs at Markley, and
with the new services at Bursley and
West Quad, the housing office will
probably ask the Student Rate Commit-
tee to consider a meal ticket cost hike
for next fall.
"I know it's costing us more money,"
Sunstad said. He added, however, that
the housing office has not yet finished a
complete analysis of the costs involved
and how much the increase should
amount to.
THE STUDENT rate committee will
decide in January whether to recom-
mend a hike in meal card fees to the
Regents - who will make the final
decision on, resident hall rate increases
in February or March.
Sunstad said his office will continue
to study the meal plan to iron out
problems or improve it. "We really
want to make this thing meet students'

needs," Sunstad said. "We'd-like to
hear from students."
A few changes will be made in the
continuous meal service after Nov. 30:
" Breakfast will start at 7:15 a.m. at
Markley and West Quad, and at 7 a.m.
at Bursley.
" Lunch will be served in all three
dorms from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.,
when the cafeterias will close until 4:30
* Dinner lines will stay open until 8
p.m. and South Quad no longer will
have a late dinner hour.
Sunstad said the cafeterias will close
in the afternoon in order to cut costs
and because student tra
during those hours.
Students who want more than two
meals a day can buy a three-meal ticket
for the remainder of the term, Sunstad



Nuclear arms
may e on sub

From APand UPI
STOCKHOLM, Sweden- Nuclear-
tipped torpedos probably are aboard
the Soviet Aubmarine that went
aground'while prowling in a, restricted
..zone near a major Swedish Naval base
10 days ago, outraged Swedish officials
said yesterday.
They said the Soviets can have their
submarine back but that storm-tossed
seas likely will delay departure of the
vessel until today.
FOREIGN Minister Ola Ullsten told
the Kremlin that Sweden regarded the
incident with the "utmost gravity and
would tolerate no repetition of it,
especially since the Soviets ignored his
demand for more information on the
sub's armaments, refused an inspec-
tion of the torpedo hold and claimed the
'sub was armed only with "the
necessary weapons and ammunition."
Swedish officials said there appeared
to be no radioactive fallout on islands in
the restricted Bleckinge Archipelago-
where the diesel-powered submarine
ran into the rocks 10 days ago.
Prime Minister Thorbjorn Falldin
ended the 10-day crisis by calling the
Soviet trespass "a serious breach of
Swedish territory and sovereignty."

FALLDIN TOLD a news conference
that the sub would be escorted to a
Soviet flotilla outside Sweden's
territorial waters "as soon as the
weather permits."
Heavy weather with 45 mph wind
gusts prevented the departure 'and
Swedish officers said it would be
delayed at least until daytime today. An
armada of 11 Soviet ships, including
two destroyers, two frigates and two
missile-armed corvettes, hovered in the
area in a show of strength.
w Fai1din, who opposes even peaceful
use of nuclear energy, scoffed at Soviet
references to the Baltic as a -"sea of
peace," and said Swedish experts
recorded radiation from the outside of
the sub's hull for three nights and con-
cluded that the sub carried Uranium-
THE SOVIET Union as well as the
Nordic countries have urged that the
Baltic Sea be free of nuclear arms.
Sweden's commander-in-chief, Gen.
Lennart Ljung, told reporters there was
as much as 22 pounds of U-238 aboard
and that'it could have been used as a
protective shield around U-235, a main
ingredient in nuclear arms. But he said

Ponytail gave him away
Bennie Zordel's Halloween costume-a police
uniform-was authentic, but the ponytail gave him away.
Zordel, of Russell, Kansas, was charged Tuesday in Russell
County with felony theft and burglary for allegedly stealing
a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper's uniform from a squad.
Trooper Larry Smity said when he spotted Zordel on
Halloween night, he was suspicious because of the ponytail.

ship Board of School Trustees in Glenview, Ill., but the
problem is a state law that requires a person to be 18 before
holding an elective office. Freedman is hoping to win an
exception to the age requirement because he will have
reached the age requirement before his six-year term is up.
Freedman spent about $150 on his campaign for pamphlets,
pictures, and news releases. "The only campaign promise I
made was to do the best job I can," Freedman said. "I
figure that in politics, if you promise only what you can
deliver, then you can't go wrong." "1

of the 10 puppies, only two were left. Most of the responses,
she said, were from women. "And most of them asked me
about my husband, what he looked like and how much
money he made," she said. "One older man called and gave
me the dickens for treating my husband like that." Shelly
Cook said her husband, Jim, was surprised by the ad. "But
he just laughed about it. He's pretty good natured." At least,
one caller apparently wasn't as pleased with her own
husband. "One woman said she'd pay me a commission if
I'd try to get rid of hers," said Shelly Cook. "She didn't even
have any puppies."
