Flu bug zaps


Although it seems everyone is sniffling and
sneezing, local doctors say this winter's wheezing is
no more prevalent than in the past.
The flu epidemic sweeping the nation has not yet
plagued the state, and a University Health Service
doctor said the number of infectious diseases in Ann
Arbor has risen at its usual rate.
Dr. Anna Davol said that students returning to Ann
Arbor after vacation bring germs with them from all
over the world which are likely to affect other studen-

"THERE'S ALWAYS an increase in illness after
vacations-especially Christmas," she said.
The next two to five weeks are considered to be the
flu season, said John Atwater, director of the
Washtenaw County Public Health Department.
"We've had a lot of illness recently, but it's no sur-
prise .. . there will be a lot of flu."
But the bug is not restricted to Ann Arbor. County
health officials report a major flu outbreak in Saline,
where schools are reporting a 30 percent absentee

said that although it is too early to tell, he doesn't ex-
pect any kind of major flu epidemic.
Hall explained that the predominant virus strain is
similar to one which circulated a few years ago.
Therefore, he said, people already have a slight im-
munity to it. The most common symptoms this year
are high fever from 101-103 degrees, cough and
backache, said Davol.
Anyone having these symptoms, she said, should
relax, take aspirin, and drink fluids. If the fever
doesn't break after a few days, Davol recommended



Dr. William Hall of the state health department seeing a physician.

" MSU's Mackey may
be seeking new post




McCracken to committee

State University President Cecil
Mackey refused comment yesterday on
reports he might be under con-
sideration to head the University of
Alabama and interviewed for the top
job at another school.
Mackey released a statement
through his office saying he "does not
wish to respond to personal questions."
WILX-TV, quoting sources, said
Alabama-Mackey's alma mater-
reportedly was "very interested" in the
MSU chief,
WILX also said Mackey was among
15 persons interviewed for the
presidency of Arizona State University.
ASU, which last year hired away MSU's
football coach and athletic director, has
since madeanother selection, however.
MSU Trustee Peter Fletcher said he
does not believe Mackey is actively
seeking other jobs, but said he would
not be surprised if other schools have

approached him.

it would


unusual for a man in Mackey's position
to spurn all such offers out of hand.
"A prudent person at least listens,"
he said.i
The 57-year-old Mackey has been a
controversial figure since shortly after
he- assumed the Michigan State
presidency in August 1979.
The strong-willed administrator has
fought an on-and-off battle with the
school's breakaway alumni association
and has drawn criticism for remodeling
work done at his official residence.
A former president of Texas Tech and
Florida State, Mackey holds bachelors
and masters degrees in economics from
the University of Alabama.
Fletcher, an influential Republican
pairty official named to the MSU board
by Gov. William Milliken, stressed the
campus has been rife with rumors

With UPI reports
Gov. William Milliken yesterday
named University President Harold
Shapiro and Business and Economics
Prof. Paul McCracken to a new group
charged with attracting high-growth,
high-technology industry to Michigan.
"The idea is that (Milliken) would
like to have some advice on what
Michigan as a state could do to be more
attractive in high technology areas,'
Shapiro said last night.
Milliken's plans for such a commit-
tee, to be chaired by Lt: Gov. James
Brickley, were revealed in the gover-
nor's State of the State address
delivered Thursday.
_ THE GROUP will explore the poten-
tial for cooperation among business,

education, and government in attrac-
ting the types of new industries
Michigan needs to diversify its auto-
dependent economy.
Education plays an important role in
industrial growth, Shapiro said,
because high technology areas are
generally "clustered around major
research Universities."
Shapiro hopes his experience as an
economist and educator will aid the
committee's work. "I think I've spent a
long time studying the state of the
economy in Michigan as well as in the
country," he said. As the president of a
major research university, Shapiro
said his contacts also will help.
Also named to the group were
William Agee, chairman of Bendix
Corp.; W. Michael Blumenthal,

Burroughs Corp.; Ted Doan, president
of Doan Resources Corp. in Midland;
Herbert Dow, secretary of Dow
Chemical Co.; Max Fisher, a Detroit
financier; William Hubbard, president
of Upjohn Corp.; Samuel Irwin,
president of Irwin International Corp.
in Ann Arbor; Donald Mandich,
president of Detroit Bank and Trust
Co.; Alan Schwartz, of thq law firm of
Honigan, Miller, Schwartz and Cohn in
Detroit; and Dale Stein, president of
Michigan Technological University.
The group will study the need for ven-
ture capital and better dissemination of
technical information, and make
specific recommendations for

most voluminous rumor mills in our
society," he said.

Two pedestrians struck
by autos at same place

Two elderly women were injured in
separate accidents while crossing the
intersection of South Division and East
