Bunyon Bryant, an associate professor in the

State Representative Teola Hunter (D-Detroit)
chaired the state committee. "It is very important
that there be a representative group you organize.
There are some problems identifiable with this cam-
pus, like student recruitment and retention, that we
are going to address. I am very concerned about the
excellence of minority faculty and the upward
mobility of the minority staff. There doesn't seem to
be an effort to induce minority staff to stay," Hunter
said. It is the committee's job now to report to the,
state legislature on affirmative action at this and
other colleges in the state.


Gray Panther leader speaks against Reaganomics

issues, but societal issues," Kuhn said.
"We're not just another self-serving in-
terest group."
She said the old and the young can
unite to present a common front
against Reagan's plans to cut federal
assistance to higher education.
KUHN SPOKE Thursday at the
Salvation Army in Ann Arbor on "New
Goals for a New Age."'
Asho Craine, the local convener of the
Gray Panters, also criticized Reagan
for "not giving enough for us to eat and
giving too much to the military."
She said the young and the old have a
lot to give each other in the effort "to
put people ahead of profits."
"We need (the young's) energy," she
said, "but maybe they can use our per-
KUHN'S CONCERN with Reagan's

cuts in financial aid has led her to laun-
ch a campaign to contact local college
groups across the country to urge them
to take a strong stand.
The local Public Interest Group in
Michiganask forcecoordinator for
student aid, Cornelia Trowbridge,
recently joined the Gray Panthers
because she feels that the cuts in federal
spending "affect all ages."
Because students can no longer
depend upon the federal government
for college aid, they have been forced to
seek more help from their parents and
grandparents, she said.
ON A RECENT trip to Washington,
Trowbridge said that officials in the
Department of Eduction wanted to
restore "the family role in paying for
higher education." Trowbridge said
that the common state of discontent
among students and the elderly had

made each group "realize that the other
group is there."
Although the Gray Panthers em-
phasize intergenerational cooperation,
they are concerned that their name,.
given them by the media more than a
decade ago, might turn some prospec-
tive members away. Craine said it not
only sounded "militant," but that it im-
plied that it "was limited to senior
"But," Craine added, "it's nice to use
a banner to unite under."
SHE SAID the name hasn't been a
deterrent to the growth of the Panthers,
which now claims membership of more
than 50,000. It has added five new chap-
ters to its ranks since January of this
The largest growth has been in

proportion of elderly unemployed, but
Kuhn stressed that her aim is "to bring
together across geographical boun-
daries, a large diverse group."
Kuhn started the Gray Panthers in
1970 when, at age 65, she was faced with
mandatory retirement. She joined for-
ces with four friends to fight ageism in
society, and the organization was born.
One of the initial purposes of the
organization was to bring young and old
people together to protest the gover-
nment's expenditure on the war in
After her stopover in Ann Arbor
Thursday and yesterday, Kuhn went to
Lansing where she was made an
Honorary Member of the Michigan
Women's Hall of Fame. At a news con-
ference there, she spoke out against the
government's policies and accused
President Reagan of using"the big lie
technique" to persuade workers that
the Social Security system is no longer
feasible, to force them into finding other

Attacks follow Guatemala vote
GUATEMALA CITY- Gunmen killed two supporters of president-to-be
Gen. Anibal Guevara and nine bombs exploded across Guatemala City, in-
cluding one outside Guevara's election headquarters, authorities said
The nine small bombs caused no deaths, injuries or damage when they
were detonated before midnight Thursday, police said.
Police said they believed the bombs were set in anger over the results of
Sunday's presidential election.
The three losing candidates, all rightists like the government-supported
Guevara, denounced the election as a fraud and called for new voting.
Coup fails in Surinam
PARAMARIBO, Surinam- Troops loyal to Surinam's left-leaning
strongman barricaded army rebels with shellfire and submachine guns
before dawn yesterday and claimed they broke the back of a two-day
takeover attempt by rightists.
The military strongman, Lt. Col. Desi Bouterse, said he was in control
again of this nation of 400,000 on the northern coast of South America. Street
traffic resumed its normal heavy pace.
One of two rebel leaders was wounded and in custody and the other ap-
parently was in hiding.
But most shops and government offices remained shuttered and a few
rebels held out near the barracks which had been their stronghold. Sporadic
rifle fire resounded near the barracks, the loyalists said whey were mopping
Salvadoran rebels attack dam
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- Leftist rebels launched two strong at-
tacks against a key hydroelectric dam and the southeastern town of
Tecoluca, killing at least two soldiers and three civilians, military
spokesmen said yesterday.
The eastern 30 percent of the country was still blacked out following the
destruction of a high voltage transmission tower by rebels on Wednesday,
electric company officials said.
Leftist guerrillas have been striking across the country in new attacks
every day in an offensive launched Monday.
GM wants more concessions
DETROIT- General Motors Corp. and the United Auto Workers reopened
emergency contract talks yesterday, with GM's top negotiator saying he is
likely to seek more concessions than the union granted financially troubled
Ford Motor Co.
The UAW said GM, the only Big Three automaker to make a profit last
year, can expect no more than what the union granted Ford. GM earned $333
million in 1981 while Ford lost more than $1.06 billion.
GM negotiator Al Warren told a news conference the company "probably"
would seek more concessions than Ford got from the union. GM will give the
UAW a proposal when bargaining resumes Monday, he said.
UAW president Douglas A. Fraser has acknowledged that GM's 1981 profit
was tiny compared with the company's record $3.5 billion profit in 1978 and a
$3.3 billion profit in 1977. The profits were fueled by record car sales, and

Coroner may face inquiry
LOS ANGELES- Criticized by singer Frank Sinatra and suspended by
county supervisors, embattled Medical Examiner Thomas Noguchi faced a
possible criminal investigation yesterday for his actions as. the "coroner to
the stars."
Hours after the Boardof Supervisors suspended the Japanese-born foren-
sic expert for 30 days for alleged mismanagement, District Attorney John
Van de Kamp said his office would review the case "to determine whether
there is a basis for a criminal investigation."
Earlier this year, an investigation by the Los Angeles Times, which
trigger4de1the supervisors' 'audit, revealed charges that members of the
coroner's staff had lost and misidentified bodies, misplaced crucial eviden-
ce, served as poor witnesses during trials and looted possessions of the dead.

Armed robber threatens
l -year-old girl
An 11-year-old girl was threatened by
a lone gunman Thursday afternoon,
Ann Arbor police said. The girl was
sleeping in her room when the man en-
tered the house in the 1700 block of
Avondale Street. He threatened her
with a handgun, ordering her to be quiet
as he ransacked the house. The girl was
not hurt and called the police after the
man left with a small amount of cash,
police said.

University student shot
An 18-year-old male University
student was feloniously assaulted
yesterday, according to police.
The student said he was walking
down the 500 block of E. Madison, when
he felt a sharp blow to his left leg. X-
rays taken at the University Hospital
revealed a metal object in the victim's
"It doesn't appear to be a bullet," a
police official said. "Rather, something
fired from a pellet gun or possible a
sling shot."
The student was treated and released
from the hospital, and, according to
police, the investigation is continuing.
