Bomb blast mars
pope's 'peace' trip

MANILA, Philippines (AP)-Tens of thousands of
Filipinos waved and applauded as Pope John Paul II arrived
this morning to begin a 12-day "peace mission" to the Far
East. There was tight security at the airport and two Philip-
pine air force jets escorted his aircraft.
Yesterday, during a stopover in Karachi, Pakistan, a hand
grenade exploded at a stadium shortly before the pope was to
celebrate Mass. The explosion killed the man carrying the
grenade and injured three other people, Pakistani police
IN MANILA, the pontiff stepped from his Alitalia jet
holding his hands high, walked down the ramp and kissed the
ground, the same gesture he has made on each of hiseight
previous trips as pope.
John Paul, dressed in white cassock and skullcap, was
greeted by President Ferdinand Marcos and his wife Imelda,
both Roman Catholics, and Cardinal Jaime Sin, the arch-
bishop of Manila.
In an emotional welcoming speech, Marcos said the rich
should not exploit the poor, a charge often aimed at him, and
called the poor "God's first children."
THE POPE DREW loud applause when he responded in the.

Filipino national language, Tagalog. "Thanks to the
Almighty," and extended greetings to Christians and non-
Christians throughout Asia "as a friend and a brother in the
family of mankind."
More than one million Filipinos lined the 4.3-mile parade
route into Manila to welcome the pope, who rode on a
specially designed raised float.
Security for his visit to Manila is being coordinated by 32
generals, authorities here said.
THE GRENADE exploded near a reviewing stand in the
Karachi stadium 20 minutes before John Paul arrived to
celebrate Mass for 100,000 people, a church official said.
The 60-year-old pontiff apparently was unaware of the ex-
plosion and was not told of it before he arrived at the national
satdium under police escort and celebrated a 90-minute
Mass. He made the brief stopover in predominantly Moslem
Pakistan before his tour of the Philippines, Guam, Japan,
and Anchorage, Alaska.
The explosion occurred behind a wall 15 feet from a
reviewing stand where scores of diplomats and dignitaries

Peterson, Morris, Velker win
in primlary; voter turnout low

Democrats Lowell Peterson, Leslie
Morris, and Republican Lou Velker
were victorious in yesterday's City
Council primary.
Only 2 percent of Ann Arbor's 77,000
registered voters made it to the polls

Morris, 41, took all but three of the
nine precincts in the ward. Ewing, 25,
lost his home precinct by one vote.
Several of Morris' volunteers said
that the unanticipated part of this
year's campaign was, Ewing's
allegation that Morris spent too much
time on her council duties.
ALTHOUGH HE DID not win the
Second Ward primary, Ewing said he
will continue to work on the proposed
Broadway corrections center, which he
had cited earlier in the campaign as a

major reason for deciding to run.
"I am unpleasantly surprised,"
Ewing said. "But the Second Ward has
spoken - at least those who made it to
the polls."
Campaign manager John Wolter
said,"I think the student turnout was
strong enough that if we could have got-
ten more senior citizens out, the vote
count would have been much closer."
The First Ward contest for the
Democratic City Council nomination
was decided early with Peterson cap-

win, and issues played a minor role in
the primary.

Senate Assembly
postpones acceptance
of 'smaller but better'

Dorm rate hike imminent

The Senate Assembly again post-
poned yesterday voting on two
resolutions calling for faculty accep-
tance of the "smaller but better" con-
cept for the University.
Yesterday's discussion focused on
two new motions aimed at revising
Resolution A, which states that the
faculty agrees to maintin quality
through selective program reduction
and discontinuance in troubled finan-
cial times.
RESOLUTION B, calling for faculty
participation in the making of program
cuts, was not addressed by the Assem-
Resolutions A and B were introduced
to the faculty last month by the Senate
Assembly Committee on University Af-

Professor of Pharmacy Norman
Weiner 'oposed the faculty accept
program reduction and discontinuance
as "one mechanism" for the University
to employ in its attempt to fight finan-
cial difficulties.
THE MOTION WAS voted on and ac-
cepted by the Assembly as an amen-
dment to Resolution A.
SACUA Chairman Arch Naylor said
last night the amendment did not
change the resolution, but stated its
purpose more clearly. He added that if
the faculty rejects Resolutions A and B
- which it may vote on next month -
"it will make it that much harder for
the University to function."
The Assembly rejected a substitute

Traditional residence hall housing
rates will jump 9.8 percent this fall if
the Regents pass Housing Division
recommendations at Thursday's
The cost of living in a double oc-
cupancy room in one of the Univer-
sity's traditional halls, such as South
Quad, will be $2,281.29, $204.24 more
than this year's rate, according to
the Housing Office proposal.
Fletcher Hall, Baits Houses, and
family housing are scheduled for
hikes of 6.2 percent, 17.1 percent,
13.1 percent, and 9.95 percent
respectively, the report states.
The increases were recommended
to keep up with inflation, according
to a rate study committee's report to
the housing division.
In a report to the Regents,

Housing Dirctor Robert Hughes
said: "The recommended rates will
adequately meet increased
operating expenses as well as
provide sufficient funding for (plan-
ned) capital improvement
"Although virtually all Housing
Division expenses are expected to
increase by more than 10 percent
during the 1981-82 budgetary year,
implementation of significant cost
saving measures as well as notable
increases in summer housing
revenues will soften the anticipated
inflationary impact," Hughes'
report states.
This year's energy saving
measures, such as the installation of
new windows in several campus
dormitories, are expected to be the
primary source of savings for the
residence halls, the study said.

Davis goes to Washington
C AROLYNE DAVIS, associate vice president for
academic affairs, will have a new job as
administrator of the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services' Health Care Financing
Administration beginning March 1. As associate vice
president under University Vice President for Academic
Affairs Bill Frye, Davis was responsible for program

equitable health delivery services to the 47 million
Americans who are beneficiaries of our Medicaid-Medicare

since 1975. She came to the University in 1973 as dean of the
nursing school. Vice President Frye said: "I am delighted
by Carolyne Davis' appointment to such an important post
in the federal health care administration. Her departure
from Michigan will be keenly felt by all of us but we wish
her every success in her new position." O

Peanut power
It may be comforting to know that this university isn't the
only one having to cut corners. Researchers at the Univer-
sity of Georgia are considering the use of peanut oil in two
university buses to cut down on the cost of running the
vehicles on gasahol. Dr. John Goodrum, an associate
professor of agriculture, said the peanut oil is basically the
same as the oil sold in sunermarkets. Because it tends to

Fido Freeze for your dog. The delicacy for canines was in-
vented by Ohio State University Prof. William Tyznik as a
nutritious dessert for dogs. "I didn't want something like
candy for kids, but rather like fruit for kids. For dogs,"
says Tyznik, who got the idea for the frozen treat after
noting how many people buy ice cream for their pets. Do
dogs really need the frozen treat? "No they don't need it
any more than we need ice cream, cookies, or anything
else, but we have them because we like them," Tyznik ex-
plained. "But we like dogs too. And if you're going to treat a
dog, why not give them something nutritionally adequate?"
