New service searches for
.student financial aid
By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
More than $3 billion in scholarships,
loans, and work-study endowments are
waiting to be claimed by students, the
only problem is knowing where to look,
says J. Dale Boyd, the head of Ann Ar-
bor's newly-founded scholarship search
Boyd, who last. month founded the
Ann Arbor based American Academic
Scholarship Service, claims that all
students need do to find all this money
is pay him a $49 fee and he will find for
them at least five potential sources of
BUT, HARVEY Grotrian, the
University's director of financial aid,
warns that students should be careful
before dishing out fees to any of the
many financial aid serach services that
have cropped up around the country
over the past year,.
"We're not saying they're not a
valuable source (for locating of aid),"
he said. "But students should not use
these services blindly. they should do
some footwork on their own and then
"We would suggest that students
familiarize themselves first with in-
formation available free to the studen-
ts," Grotrian said, adding that a book
with listings of scholarship sources is
available at the University's Office of
Financial Aid in the Student Activities
BOYD, WHO is a local aerospace,
executive, said his service is hooked in-
to a New Jersey computer which has a
listing of more than $250,000 possible
sources of financial aid.
The New Jersey company has been
compiling data for four years, Boyd said
and has serviced more than 10,000
clients since it opened last summer. It
provided 96 percent of those clients with
at least five sources of possible aid, he
If the computer does not come up
with at least five sources, Boyd said he
refunds the $49 fee that the student
submits with a completed dataform and
the student is provided with whatever
information the computer did turn up.
THE FORM, which can be obtained
by sending $1 and a self-addressed en-
velope to Boyd's Ann Arbor post office
box, includes questions on topics
ranging from occupational goals to
special talents and skills.
An estimated family income is also
requested Boyd said, becaqse some,
awards listed are based on need.
According to Boyd, the student is sent
a computer print-out listing up to 25
possible sources within two weeks after
the application is received. At that
point, he added, it is up to the student to
contact the potential sources.
"YOU JUST don't know where to go
or who to contact (for aid). That's the
value of putting it on the computer,"
Boyd said, adding that on a trial
program he ran on his son, he was
aware of only four out of the thirteen
sources the computer listed.
College freshmen and sophomores
and high schol juniors and seniors
benefit the most from the service, Boyd
said, stressing that it is important for
high school juniors to act early in case
there are award requirements that
have to be met during the senior year.
BOYD SAID he knew of no particular
reason the awards are not more
publicized but added that information
on them is available to the public. For
example, he said, the American Legion
has an extensive scholarship program
but it is only publicized among the
group's current members.
"The beauty of it," he said, "is once
you put your information on the
dataform, the computer does the mat-
ching." It would be impossible, Boyd
said, to narrow the number of awards
available to an individual from 250,000
to 13 without the help of a computer.
The company is currently working on
gathering information on athletic
scholarships and is also designing a
program for students pursuing advan-
ced degrees, he said.

City aware of student apathy
By STACY POWELL
Student apathy may have replaced student activism in
several areas of campus life-especially concerning city
"Students don't realize that city politics have anything to
do with them," said City Councilmember Lowell Peterson
(D-First Ward). "Students drink in Ann Arbor bars, pay
taxes through their rent, and drive on the roads."
MAYOR LOUIS Belcher agreed that, student apathy is a
serious problem in the city. "I've watched student par-
ticipation drop substantially in the last six or seven years,"
Belcher said the lack of student involvement can be
blamed on a preoccupation with academics. "They're
(students) more interested in studies and getting a job," he
Although many blame low student participation on out-of-
state students who don't register to vote, Peterson disagreed.
"EVEN PEOPLE who are registered don't vote," Peter-
Peterson said student involvement in political issues is
limited to a "solid core of people." Democratics are more ac-
tive than Republicans, Peterson said, adding, "The Young
Republicans are more of a social club. I can't imagine any
student supporting the Republican party."
The activists center around issues such as the U.S. role in
Central America, robotics, and President Reagan's financial
aid cutbacks to University students, Peterson said.
BELCHER-IS optimistic that student involvement will pick
up in the future. "Long-range programs like energy,
recycling, and solid waste disposal" have spurred student in-
terest recently, he said.
"They (students) feel a strong sense of responsibility to.
work out these issues," Belcher commented.
To increase interaction between students and the city, Ann
Arbor has set up internships through the University. 20 or 30
students currently have internships with city committees
and commissions, Belcher said.
TOKYO (UPI) - Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger told Japan yester-
day the United States is determined to
remain "a Pacific power" but that the
Japanese must start spending more on
their own defense.
Weinberger, beginning his first of-
ficial tour of Asia with a three-day visit
to Japan, told a luncheon audience that
Japanese who believe the Soviet Union
is-no threat to them are being "foolishly
"IT WOULD be dangerously shor-
tsighted and foolishly naive to believe
that if Japan divested itself of alliances
or of the means of defending 'its
homeland and its sea lanes that the
Soviets would no longer present a
threat," he said. Weinberger said
"the United States will remain a
Pacific power" but that Japan must
also do more about its own defense.
"Soviet aggression has taken place"
thoughout the world, Weinberger said
in answer to a question. "It's quite
clear they are not a friend to you."
He recalled Prime Minister Zenko
Suzuki's promise last year that Japan
would defend itself and the sea lanes
around it to a distance of 1,000 miles
and said that "will require increases in
defense spending substantially greater
than the current annual growth rate."
Japan's new defense budget is $10.6
billion, an increase of 7.75 percent over
last year but still only one percent of
Japan's gross national product. Most
NATO allies, by comparison, allocate
three to six percent of their GNPs to
Weinberger called Japanese defense
spending increase a "very encouraging
first step in the right direction," but
said Washington was concerned with
the "pace of these efforts" to improve

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - Of-

turnout of 85 percent for tomorow's
elections despite a rebel offensive that

government troops in eastern El

to retake a rebel-held town in nor-

guerrilla activity had fallen short of an

In the capital, the government
prepared for election day by sending
heavily armed soldiers patrolling in
trucks, jeeps, cars, on motorcycle and
on foot throughout San Salvador.
Pedestrians were stopped for iden-
tification, cars were searched for
weapons or explosives.
The two major parties, the moderate
ChristianDemocrats and the far-right
National Republican Alliance, known
as Arena, appeared to be running neck
and neck as election day approaches.
THE ELECTION is for a constituent
assembly to write a new constitution,
replacing the civilian-military junta
that has governed during a 2 -year-old
civil war that has claimed an estimated
33,000 lives. The assembly will also
name a provisional president to govern
until another round of elections,
probably next year.
Voters will pick a 60-seat constituent
assembly that will consider rewriting
the constitution, name a provisional'
president and set the date and rules for
a general election, probably in1983.
Leftist rebels, who are boycotting the
elections, kept up their offensive to
disrupt the balloting. Fighting was
reported in nearly all of the eight
military outposts in northeastern
