Work Study jobs up
30lfrom last year

Continued from Page 1)
Barb Booker, a lab manager in the
Chemistry Department, explained,
"The departments are willing to pay, to
sample different people, and are willing
to keep them on."
Some Work Study jobs are especially
coveted. "Research positions go fast,
since many students are interest in
research careers," said Riet Haas of
the School of Education Personnel
Department.
IN ADDITION to getting experience
in a possible career choice and earning
more than the minimum wage,
graduate student Karen Taylor said her
work study job can be scheduled around
her classes.
She said there is "90 to 95 percent
flexibility-schedule wise" in her job as
a research assistant at the Botanical
Gardens.
"It's different," she added, "I enjoy
being around plants."
While most of the work study students
interviewed at the recent job fair were
satisfied with the program, many com-
plained about poor communication

between the departments, the Work
Study Office, and the students.
FRESHWOMAN ANNVismara, who
was applying for a photography job,
said, "It seems there is a lack of com-
munication, that (application)
deadlines in different departments are
changed, and then it's too late to get a
job in another area."
Mark Bovine, an experienced Work
Study student, agreed that there was a
communication problem.
"I worked for the Work Study Office
in one of my Work Study jobs, and part
of my work was to compile the job in-
formation from departments into the
classifications of the office job descrip-
tion books. But it (the description)
didn't always make clear to the student
just what the job entailed," he said.
"Therefore, misinformation was given
by the Work Study Office."
Despite the problems he saw in the
program, Bovine said he did benefit
from it, especially on one job as an
assistant to the Michigan Student
Assembly president.

As a woman ROTC
student, you'll com-
pete for your commis-
sian on the same foot-
ing as the men in your
class.
There are 2-year,
3-year, and 4-year
scholarship programs
available. A young

woman enrolled in the
AFROTC 4-year pro-
gram is also qualified
to compete for an
AFROTC college schol-
arship which will
cover the remaining 2
or 3 years she has as
a cadet. 'Tuition is
covered... all fees

paid ... textbook costs
reimbursed . . . plus
$100 a month allow-
ance, tax-free.
A woman's place is
definitely in the Air
Force and our pinning
ceremony will be the
highlight of her col-
lege experience.

THERE'SGOT TO BE A
BETTER WAYI

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Mortgage rates may stabilize
WASHINGTON-Home mortgage rates are likely to hover around 12
percent to 13 percent through the end of the year, executives of the nation's
savings and loan associations predicted yesterday.
Officers of the savings and loan associations blame the federal gover-
nment for the high interest rates and the shortage of mortgage money they
think will follow.
The league, which represents the S&Ls, launched a campaign to get
relief from Congress. The central goal is winning authority to pay more in-
terest to depositors than commercial banks are allowed to pay, in order to
attract more savings to lend to home buyers.
Arrests continue in Turkey;
new cabinet to be named
ANKARA, Turkey-Turkish troops, in a crackdown on leftist intel-
lectuals and professionals, swept through every major technical association
in the capital yesterday, arresting workers and carrying away records, wit-
nesses said. Left-leaning officials in Ankara municipal offices also were
ousted, they reported.
Earlier yesterday, the military coup that ousted the civilian government
last Friday, Gen. Kenan Evren, said at a news conference that his ruling
National Security Council would name a new civilianCabinet by the end of
the week. It was too early, he added, to say when full civilian rule will be
restored.
Church-state conflict
dominates Mass. primary
A Roman Catholic cardinal was involved in two congressional primary
races in Massachusetts yesterday, as Gov. Dixy Lee Ray fought for
renomination in Washington.
The abortion issue and a church-state conflict dominated two bitterly
contested House races in Massachusetts, sparking enough interest that of-
ficials expect a 60 percent turnout of voters in the two districts despite an
overall prediction of a 25 percent turnout state-wide.
Oklahoma's voting yesterday was dominated by close contests in both
Democratic and Republican primary runoffs to choose a successor to
retiring GOP Sen. Henry Bellmon.
In Washington state, the conflict between the governor and her chief
rival for the Democratic nomination, state Sen. Jim McDermott, comman-
ded attention, but less than half of the state's 2 million registered voters
were expected to show up at the polls.
Factory production up
WASHINGTON-U.S. factories increased. production in August for,
the first time in seven months, the government said yesterday in a report
that provided further evidence the nation may be pulling out of the recession
The production figures, released by the Federail feserve Board, were
the latest in a recent string of encouraging indicators that suggest the 1980
recession may have ran its course in only six months-making it the shortest
of seven economic downturns since World War II..
In recent weeks, government reports have shown retail sales rising
housing construction increasing, businesses rebuilding their inventories and
the United States exporting more and importing less.
Washington economist Michael Evans is convinced Americans have
learned how to live with double-digit inflation and will continue to spend
enough in the months ahead to make the economy grow.
Childhood cancer down
NEW YORK-Cancer deaths among children have dropped dramatical.
ly during the past 20 years and half of all youngsters with malignancies are
now being cured, the head of a Los Angeles pediatric cancer study group
said yesterday.
But Dr. Denman Hammond said that although childhood cancer is
relatively rare, it remains the No. 1 disease killer of children up to the age 14.
Cancer is expected to strike 6,100 youngsters in the United States this
year, according to estimates by the American Cancer Society.

Hammond told an international symposium reviewing the status of the
war against cancer that the outlook was bleak in 1950 for a child developing
the disease. Since then, however, he said cancer mortality among children
has dropped 43 percent.
