(the deadline change) is a compromise.
It's a step forward. We still have an ex-
tra term" to meet the eligibility
requirements, Howe said.
"It's better than going back to how it
was before," when students had to have
a 2.5 GPA at the time of application in
January, Howe said.
Coady said the credit hour
requirement was reduced because
"we're finding more students are
taking lighter (academic) loads and
"WITH THE 48 credit hour
requirement, some people will be
eligible who wouldn't have been
before," Coady said. "I would assume
we will see more applicants."
Coady said about 700 students have
applied for RA, RD and resident fellow
positions so far. Applications for about
300 positions "have been ranging
around 750 to 900 for the last few
years," Coady said.
The deadline for new applicants is
Jan. 20, and current staff must re-apply
by today, Coady said.

Brickley in the race'
for governor's chair,
LANSING (UPI) - Lt. Gov. James
Brickley announced yesterday he will:
,run for governor, Michigan's "most
significant public office," after seven
years of waiting in the wings. ,
The 53-year-old Republican announ-
ced his long-expected entry into the 1982
gubernatorial race at a press conferen-
ce in the ornate lieutenant governor's
office on the first floor of the Capitol.
Gov. William Milliken's loyal
lieutenant acknowledged he shares
many of the"moderate views of
Michigan's longest-serving governor,
but insisted he will be his own man in
HE SAID JOBS clearly will be the
number one issue in this recession-
wracked state where unemployment
climbed to 14.4 percent last month.
Milliken warmly endorsed Brickley
last month while announcing he would
not seek another term nor run for the
U.S. Senate. The governor's office had
no statement on Brickley's announ-
"The office of governor is the most
significant public office in the state,"
" I SEEK THE public's trust to use
that office to help alleviate our
economic pain and build a diversified
economy immune in the future to such
trauma," he said.
Brickley said the "most obvious" fir-
st step to recovery is completing action
on his boss's economic revival
program. He promised to be offering
more specifics of his own as the cam-
paign wears on.
The grey-haired ex-FBI agent said
one major area of difference with
Milliken has been state funding of
welfare abortions, Milliken has used his
veto to preserve it, while Brickley, a
Roman Catholic and foe of abortion, said
he believes it is inappropriate for the
state to fund the operations when the

Bounced bar patrons
ambush 24-year-old man
By PERRY CLARK
A 24-year-old man was attacked and
beaten by a gang of youths outside
Dooley's, 310 Maynard St., early
yesterday morning, police said.
The victim and a friend, 23, had been
in the bar during the evening, and had a
verbal exchange with a group of about
seven people, police said. Bartender
Scott Schlief described the group as
"just a bunch of kids," and said they
had created a disturbance in the bar for
which they were removed.
When the victim and his friend left
the bar at 12:20 a.m., they were jumped
by the youths, who knocked the victim
to the ground, where he was kicked and
beaten, police said. His companion at-
tempted to assist him, as did boun-
cer/bartender Rob Squires.
Schlief said that at this point, he went
outside and with the aid of Squires,
' pulled the two men who were attacked
back inside. He said the youths
remained outside, and threatened to
beat up people as they left the bar.
Police were summoned, but before
they arrived, the suspects broke' a
small side window in the bar and fled in
a black Ford van, police said. After the
police departed, Schlief said three of
the youths returned and threw a gar-
bage can through another window. He
said they came back a third time and
again broke a window.
Police said the victim of the attack
did not require hospitalization. There
are no suspects as yet, but police are
continuing the investigation.
