According to Buchele there are ap-
proximately 600 spaces for residents.
Of these, about half are open for new
residents each year.
Co-ops are one of the few places that

reason they are so popular with tran-
The North Campus Co-ops have a
higher vacancy rate and turnover than
those on central and the athletic cam-
puses. Michigan House's Schwartz at-
tributes this to the location, size, and
construction of the buildings on North
Campus. He says the modern building
style of the large complex "lends a
dorm-like appearance so the environ-
ment is not as homey."
Students choose co-ops for a variety
of reasons. Doug McMahon, a three-
week member of the ICC and new
student at the University, said the dor-
ms are "too wild."
Engineering student Hope Piuck, a
Michigan House resident, said she wan-
ted to leave the dorm also, but she felt
that apartment living was too isolated.

"Dark financial clouds often mean
sunshine for the co-ops," Buchele said,
but apparently these clouds are not
dark enough to boost ICC membership.
The first student residential co-op in
North America was established in Ann
Arbor in the 1930s. Students, hardhit by
the Depression doubled up to cut costs
so they could remain in school.

DALLAS '(AP) - Six art students at
Southern Methodist University have

"It's pretty much of a mystery," said
Dr. James Garriott, a Dallas
toxicologist who has been investigating
the cases for two months.

Polish workers gain
access to media
WARSAW, Poland-Poland's independent trade unionists yesterday
backed off from their demand for an immediate five-day workweek, but won
government concessions on access to communications media in marathon
The issue of an independent farmers' union, however, remained
unresolved and the possibility of a nationwide work stoppage Tuesday still
Union sources said a government commission led by Deputy Premier
Mieczyslaw Jagielski was expected in the southeastern town of Rzeszow
today for talks with farmers pressing for recognition of their "Rural
Negotiators apparently surmounted one of the major issues contributing
to continuing labor unrest by agreeing to a compromise under which three
Saturdays each month would be work-free, with work on the fourth.
March strike looms as pilots
tour nation to gain support
WASHINGTON-The major airlines are bracing for a threatened pilots
strike over government safety policy, a protest that could leave much of the
nation briefly without scheduled air service in early March.
Leaders of the 33,000-member Air Line Pilots Association are in the midst
of a month-long, 15-city tour aimed at enlisting pilot and public support for a
work stoppage which could last from one to three days.
While the union claims to have broad backing for the protest, industry
sources said privately in interviews that some pilots are sharply divided on
its merits. In addition, several prominent carriers, including American,
Airlines, have pilots who do not belong to the association.
But if the protest attains its goals, industry sources acknowledged, air
traffic could be severely interrupted and the airlines involved might lose as
much as $80 million a day. Commuter and many regional lines would not be
Kurd warriors side with Iraq
NOWSUD, Iraqi-occupied Iran-Iran's ethnic Kurds have taken up arms
on the side of Iraqi invaders and seized on the Persian Gulf war to press their
decades-old fight for independence.
Kurds, renowned as warriors, are serving as scouts and commandos for
Iraqi forces occupying sections of the rugged Zagros Mountains in north-
But what the fiercely independent tribesmen stand to gain, even if their
allies win the war, remains to be seen.
They have received no public promises from Iraq that it would grant them
more autonomy than is enjoyed by their brothers across the pre-war border
in northeastern Iraq, where numerous small-scale Kurdish rebellions have
been quelled over the past five years.
Zimbabwe prenier denounces
South African 'aggression'
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa-Zimbabwe Prime Minister Robert
Mugabe has denounced a South African raid on black nationalists' homes in
neighboring Mozambique as "a naked act of aggression," and said his own
country would strengthen its own defense forces to prevent similar attacks.
Mugabe said in a statement released yesterday in Salisbury that the at-
tack Friday on a suburb of the Mozambican capital, Maputo, was "part of
the overall strategy of the apartheid regime to destabilize the democratic
political order of the frontline states."
The South African Defense Force announced that 30 black nationalist
guerillas and two white South African commandos were killed in the raid.
South African officials said the raid was launched against command posts
of the outlawed African National Congress.
Survivor says captain believed
ship that sunk was sabotaged
JAKARTA, Indonesia-The captain of the Indonesian passenger ship that
exploded in flames and sank in the stormy Java Sea with the loss of more
than 500 lives believed his vessel was sabotaged, a survivor said yesterday.
Syafri Kaliluddin, a reporter for Indonesia's Antara news agency, also
charged the crew of the Tampomas-2 ignored panic-stricken passengers
looking for lifejackets and concentrated on saving themselves.
