Gifts to 'U'
total $33.8
mllion; exceed
past records.

By RITA CLARK
Prestige, research potential, and faculty reputation
helped make the University second in the nation for
corporate contributions during the 1979-80 fiscal year,
Vice President for University, Relations and
Development Michael Radock said yesterday.
The more than $13 million in corporate gifts last
year set an all-time high for the University. Nation-
wide, only the University of California system ex-
ceeded the University in levels of corporate financial
support.
THE UNIVERSITY also had a good year for total
private gifts. Donations from individuals, foun-
dations, and private corporations exceeded $33
million and made 1979 the second best-year ever for
contributions.
Radock attributed the high private gift total to
"much more aggressiveness on the part of the fund
raising staff."
The University has made a more concentrated effort

on raising money in the areas where there are poten-
tial donors "whose lives are richer because they live
in the University region," Radock said.
Except for the University of Minnesota, the Univer-
sity collects more private money than any other
public college, Radock added. The $33,874,620 collec-
ted this year contributed to the University's $622
million operating expenses.
"THERE HAS BEEN a large increase in the faculty
and students volunteering to raise money for the
University," he said. Radock attributed the increased
participation to greater awareness of the decline in
the University's state appropriations.
Both the number of donors and the amount of in-
dividual contributions reached record highs in 1979-
1980. Although Radock is expecting a decrease from
corporations and foundations in coming years, he
said he is expecting an increase in deferred gifts and
contributions from alumni.

POSSIBLE CT TO HEALTH CARE COSTS:
Phar-masslearn medical kil

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (UPI) - A
possible cure for skyrocketing health
dosts is to revert to the days when coun-
fry pharmacists recommended these
pills or that tonic.
That's the opinion of a University of
Tennessee Center for the Health Scien-
es faculty member who is director of a
program to teach the state's phar-
macists to make simple'diagnoses and
recommend over-the-counter
medication.
"Pharmacists have been doing this

from day one," said Quentin Srnka,
who has a doctorate in pharmacy.
"We're just training them to do a better
job."
FUNDED BY a three-year $130,198
grant from " the Department of
Education, officials are now drawing
up a curriculum. A pilot program will
be given to a few pharmacists next fall
and by 1982 it should be available
across the state.
Srnka concedes the program is likely
to be opposed by many doctors who see

the visit to the pharmacist as one less
patient in their office.
But he said there are physicians in
many areas that are strong proponents
of self-care. "Many think that's the an-
swer to the rising cost of health care,"
he said.
SRNKA QUOTED Virginia physician
and author Don Vickery as saying as
many as 70 percent of visits to the doc-
tor are unnecessary. Many people who
are paying money to physicians for un-
necessary examinations should instead
be consulting their pharmacists, he
said.
After the training, pharmacists will
be able to form most diagnoses just as
their medical counterparts do-through
simple questioning.
"We will train them so that if a per-
son comes into a pharmacy with a
headache, the pharmacist will be able
to ask the right questions," Srnka said.
"WE WILL BE able to categorize the
headache and suggest a non-
prescription medicine. Or the answers
to the questions may indicate that the

person needs to see a physician
quickly."
In addition to questioning, however,
pharmacists will be capable of utilizing
common medical tools such as taking
blood pressure, pulse and simple lab
tests.
"Pharmacy education prepares
pharmacists to be drug experts," Srnka
said. "But in the past, we have
sometimes neglected the link between
drugs and disease symptoms.'
THE ONE-YEAR course will utilize
home study, with occasional group
sessions at selected sites. "His practice
would become his laboratory," Srnka
said of the '"community pharmacist."
"We want the pharmacist to be a con-
sultant to help the patient help him-
self," he said. "We're leaving it up to
the consumer to make up his own
mind."
He said Americans have a lot to learn
about their health.
"People don't know generally when
to see a doctor and when to use self-care
at home," said Srnka.

Refugees find new

trying to maintain their ethnic
heritage.
AFTER CROSSING the Mekong
River on their journey to Thailand, the
Phommavanh family was taken
prisoner by the Thai police, according
to Say Chai Phommavanh. "We spent
two months in a Thai jail; an open, un-
sheltered stockade," the mother of five
children said. "We couldn't lay down at
night because of the worms and bugs in
the ground."
Families like the Phommavanhs
were not allowed to leave Thailand and
settle in the United States unless spon-
sors here could guarantee they would
have a place to live, would be fed and
clothed, and would be enrolled in
English classes. Those responsibilities
were taken on, primarily, by religious
groups and their members.
Members of the Phommovanh family
have made many changes ini their
lifestyles after their arrival in the
United States. Barbara McKinnley, a

member of the First Presbyterian
Church of Ann Arbor who helped the
family get settled, said it was difficult
for the Phommovanhs to get used to the
cold.
"WHEN THEY first got here the
children would go out in the snow in
their bare feet," McKinnley said. She
also said the family found it difficult to
get used to canned, rather than fresh,
fruits and vegetables.
Sue Homeyer, who sponsored two
Vietnamese refugees through the Holy
Trinity Chapel in Ypsilanti, said In-
dochinese men and women have very
clearly defined social roles. "A 34-year-
old woman will defer to her 19-year-old
brother as head of the household," she
explained.
. But while some Indochinese women
chose to keep their traditional social
roles, many of them have chosen to
become more independent after ex-
periencing the opportunities for the ad-
vancement of women in the United
States.
KITTY ROBERTSON, who said she
has sponsored many Vietnamese
families through the Divine Shepard
Lutheran Church in Ann Arbor, said,
"In some families the women can't be
independent without being seen as
rebellious.
"But others," she continued,
"especially the younger women, are
very independent.. . Each Vietnamese
family is different, just like we are."
A common problem shared by most
refugee families is the language
barrier. "It was hard for them to find
good jobs because they couldn't speak
English," said Arlene Zehnder, a
member of St. Luke Lutheran Church in
Ann Arbor who said she has sponsored
many Indochinese families during the
last four-and-one-half years. "Most of
the men had prestigious jobs in their
country and had to start at the bottom,
but they didn't mind at all."
ANOTHER problem Zehnder men-
tioned was that of loneliness. "After
they had been here for six to nine mon-
ths and the newness of everything had
worn off, they started thinking of all
their relatives that they had left behind
and they got lonely," she said.
On the other hand, all of the families
that Robertson sponsored were related
to each other. "They do a lot of
socializing with their relatives and
other Vietnamese friends," she said.
"That way they can live here and have
American friends while still retaining
their Vietnamese culture."

Israeli government delays
decision to call early elections
JERUSALEM-Prime Minister Menachem Begin's government, on the
brink of collapse, prolonged its life yesterday be delaying a final decision on
whether to call early elections until next week.
Although Begin has openly supported early elections, aides said leaders of
his Likud Party were seeking to broaden their parliamentary base to allow
the government to complete its term until November.
Ariel Sharon, architect of the policy of building Jewish settlements in oc-
cupied Arab territory, wants the government to stay in power as long as
possible to expand settlements on the Israeli-occupied West Bank.
Begin's government was left without a majority in Israel's 120-seat
Knesset (parliament) when Finance Minister Yigael Hurvitz resigned Sun-
day and pulled his three-man Rafi party out of the ruling coalition.
Thousands strike in Poland
WARSAW, Poland-Damands for an independent farmers' union and
work-free Saturdays fueled Poland's labor unrest yesterday as workers
struck near the Soviet border and draped Warsaw buses with placards and
Polish flags.
In Rzeszow, in the southeast corner of Poland about 40 miles from the
Soviet frontier, employees laid down their tools in a two-hour warning strike
to support private farmers' demands for a union independent of Communist
Party control.
Sources put the figure on the number of enterprises involved between 14
and 30 and said tens of thousands participated in the stoppage.
Salvadoran gov t charges
Nicaragua aiding leftists
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador-Salvadoran government sources said
yesterday they believed 100 men had been sent from Nicaragua to reinforce
leftist guerrillas fighting to topple El Salvador's government.
The U.S. ambassador here said intervention by the leftist Nicaraguan
government would "change the nature" of the conflict. But it was unclear
whether the reported intruders were Nicaraguans.
The Salvadoran insurgents, meanwhile, were holding a provincial capital
and had government troops tied down in a three-province area, and in
Washington the Carter administration was preparing to renew suspended
military aid to El Salvador.
The report of possible help from Nicaragua came as leftist sources
charged anew that the military governments of neighboring Guatemala and
Honduras had sent their own troops across the border and into the battle
against the Salvadoran insurgents.
FBI agents disciplined for
news leaks in Abscam probe
WASHINGTON-Five FBI agents and two Philadelphia prosecutors were
sharply disciplined by the Justice Department yesterday for news leaks in
the Abscam investigation and other federal probes, Attorney General Ben-
jamin Civiletti announced.
Disciplined for Abscam leaks were Quentin Ertel Jr., the official
spokesman for the FBI in New York, who was suspended without pay for 30
days, reassigned and placed on probation; and Philadelphia U.S. Attorney
Peter Vaira and his top assistant, John Penrose, both of whom were cen-
sured.
The action came as the department concluded a massive inquiry that
lasted six months, cost a half-million dollars and included more than 1,200 in-
terviews aimed at finding the sources of news stories about the in-
vestigations.
Chicago abolishes city workers'
civil service protection
CHICAGO-The City Council as scrapped civil service protection for all
future city employees except police officers and firefighters, a move that
makes Chicago the nation's only major city without an employee personnel
code.
The ordinance, which was introduced and passed last night, could mean
patronage employment of 14,000 people, in addition to the 10,000 already
hired under that system and remaining on the payroll as "temporary" em-
ployees. Many "temporary" employees are kept in that category years after
being hired.
Hiring firing and promotions would be left up to the mayor and city depar-
tment heads. The ordinance would eliminate requirements for showing-of
merit in competitive tests and also would abolish guarantees that employees
would be fired only for cause proven in Personnel Board hearings.
Hags apooval almost certain
WASHINGTON-Alexander Haig, whose nomination as Reagan's
Secretary of State is due to be acted on today, called his five days of confir-
mation hearings an "extraordinary experience."
Sen. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.), assistant Senate Democratic leader who
examined a key Haig tape from the Nixon White House said during yester-
day's session, "I must say to you in all candor. . . I am satisfied that the
transcript in no way suggests that you intended to counsel the president to
commit perjury, to lie, to have a convenient or selective memory, or in any
manner to suggest or to imply anything of the sort."
