William Holden dies
Minority course draws praise
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP)-
William Holden, one of the movies'
most popular leading men for four,
decades and an Oscar winner as the
cynical war prisoner in "Stalag 17,"
was found dead at his apartment
yesterday. Authorities said the body
had gone undiscovered for a week.
The 63-year-old actor apparently
died of natural causes. Police Sgt.
Mike Murphy said there was "no in-
dication" , of foul play, and "it's
being handled as a natural death."
Philip Schwartzberg, a Los
Angeles County coroner's in-
vestigator, said Holden had been
dead a week and an autopsy would
THE MANAGER at Holden's
fashionable highrise apartment
building found the body after he
became concerned because he had
not seen or heard from Holden in two
or three weeks, said Police Sgt. Dick
The actor had not been reported in
poor health, but in the last year
there had been reports he was going
to West Germany to consult with Dr.
Hans Nieper, a cancer expert.
Nieper said at the time he did not
think Holden was seriously ill.
Holden was a close friend of
President Reagan, their friendship
dating back to the days in the 1950s
when both were officers in the
Screen Actors Guild. Reagan, a
long-time movie actor, went on to
become president of SAG.
REAGAN WAS "shocked" when
informed of his old friend's death
yesterday, said White House
spokesman Larry Speakes in

A new course designed to expose minor-
ity students to minority issues and ser-
vices has received positive reviews
from students and faculty.
The one-credit course, offered
through the Pilot Program, was direc-
ted toward freshpersons , and
sophomores living in the hill area
residence halls, according to Kathy
Beauvais, director of the hill area dor-
THE EIGHT session course utilized
minority faculty members and
minority support services' staffers to
lead discussions on anxiety, self-
esteem, career planning, academics,
and existing minority support systems,
"The course gave me confidence,"
said freshperson Heather Scott. She
said the course enabled her to see that
"there are other people who care for
you and want you to stay at this Univer-

director, hill area dormitories
Funded through the Michigan
Student Assembly and the housing of-
fice, the course was created in part due
to the "pitiful (minority) retention
statistics" at the University, Beauvais
.said. Last year's minority
report to the Regents showed
about 30 percent of minority students
drop out of the University sometime
during their first two years.
"WE WANTED to teach them (the
students) survival," Beauvais said.
"We wanted them to learn to take
charge of their environment."
Sophomore Sterlinda Barrett, said
one class session dealing with how
students can use their aggressive
behavior in a positive manner was very
That session, she said, taught her how
to know when to approach a situation
assertively or passively, a skill she said
she will need in her role as president of

ANOTHER feature of the course was
that it exposed students to the function
of the various minority support groups,
said Valerie Mims, an MSA member
who was one of the course planners.
"This is the only course (allowing) a
student to find out about the majority of
the (minortiy) service programs," she
According to course facilitator
Margaret Wilder, the class was a
valuable way to introduce minority
faculty and staff role models to studen-
"It's a lot easier to approach (faculty
and staff) when they come to you in-
stead of you coming to them," Wilder
The course, which will be offered win-
ter term pending the approval of the
Pilot Program Standing Comittee,
began in September and ended last
"If I'd known some of the things I
learned, I wouldn't have made some of
the mistakes I made," said junior
Charles Bottoms, one of the 17 students
who had registered for the class.

Dougherty said, at which time they
"rhay or may not be able to come up
with an option" for the program.
"All five options are still possible at
this point," Dougherty said.
Physical therapy officials from
around the state, who rallied for the
program's continuance and enhan-
cement this summer when it first came
up for review, say they are optimistic
about the future of the program at the

state-wide letter writing campaign
and a string of speaking engagements
in the programs' defense last summer,
said he now feels "pretty certain the
program will not be discontinued."
John Flock, vice president for
professional services at McLaren
Hospital in Flint, said he has heard
rumors that the University's program
will be moved to its Flint campus.
A member of the state's Physical
Therapy Board, Charles Dorando, said
he heard last week that although
University officials are still reviewing
the program, "it sounded very

Blue-uniformed federal police, some
carrying thick batons, arrested 62
women,52on charges of obstructing ac-

They were hauled to the Pentagon's
motor pool area, fingerprinted and
released for arraignment next month.
Three women who splattered blood on
two pillars at the main entrance to the
building were charged with damaging
government property and were taken to
federal magistrate's court in nearby
Alexandria, Va., the spokesman said.
No injuries were reported.
Defense Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger, apparently seeking to avoid a
confrontation between police and
protestors, reduced the numbers of

stration from 238 to 175. But officials

program's future to the Regents at
their October meeting, but he later said
the presentation had to be delayed
because the complexities of the review
required more deliberation. Dougherty
said Frye would present his recom-
mendation at the Regents' meeting
this week if his meeting today with the
executive offices is successful.
Both Fitch and Darnell said they
have been pleased with the fairness of
the program's review. "The open
forum and public commentary invited
by the vice-president (Frye) have
brought to bear the importance of this
program to the state," Darnell said.
The physical therapy program has
been under review since last June when
Medical School Dean John Gronvall
reconmended that the program be
eliminated. Gronvall's recommen-
dation came after Darnell had warned
that the academic quality of the
program had been steadily slipping and
urged that unless the University made
more of a commitment to the program,
it be discontinued.
According to departmental review
procedures developed by the Regents in
1979, Vice President Frye was then
asked to present a recommendation on
the issue to the Regents, who would
ultimately decide the programn's fate.
