Educators seek better
admission standards
From staff and wire reports

NEW YORK - Leading
educator accused state universities
yesterday of playing a "cruel trick" by
admitting inadequately prepared
freshmen, and predicted tough new
admissions standards will spread
nationwide.
The discussion at the annual meeting
of The College Board prompted
frequent, occasionally angry remarks
from black educators citing statistics
revealed by the board three weeks ago.
These showed for the first time that
college entrance exam scores by
minority pupils trailed those of whites
by more than 100 points on average.
THE COLLEGE Board, a nonprofit
association of 2,500 colleges, univer-
sities, secondary schools and other
educationsl groups, administers the
Scholastic Aptitude Test, the most
widely used college, entrance
examination.
Referring to those SAT results, some

in the audience insisted that higher
admissions standards would be
meaningless, even discriminatory,
unless they took account of the poor
state of high schools that serve disad-
vantaged students.
At the University, Assistant Director
of Admissions Dave Robinson said that
though University admissions officials
have known that minorities score lower
on standardized tests such as the SAT,
they have preferred to admit less
qualified applicants into programs
designed to improve their skills, rather
than reduce the number of minorities
admitted.

v'isit some friends, said he was getting
into a car in a parking lot on the same
street when he heard the accident.
"There was a huge skid. I think the
car behind the first car was driving too
close and smashed into the first car,"
Pbrtet said.
;Porter said a policeman at the scene
told him that DeLisle was killed by the
second car. "I think if the other car
hadn't gone into him, he would've lived
through the accident."
*According to Porter, within minutes,
about 200 people had gathered at the
scene of the accident. "It just became a
ball of confusion,"he said.
ilE ALSO said a policeman told him
all three men were drunk. "Sheridan

Road isn't the kind of road you just go
out and do push-ups on. The cars just
whiz by," Porter said. "I know that the
kid was really screwed up."
Scharm said both drivers had been
cleared of all responsibility. "One
driver has been interviewed and it was
determined that it was an unavoidable
situation for the driver,".he said.
Rosenbloom said that after the ac-
cident, he and Evans were taken to the
Evanston police station for questioning.
ROSENBLOOM said Evans waited
until the next morning to go to the

hospital because of the shock of the ac-
cident. "All we were concerned with
was Jeff," he said.
Rosenbloom said he met DeLisle
through a friend who was a senior last
year. According to Rosenbloom,
DeLisle worked full-time last year and

although he was taking courses at
Washtenaw Community College, he
planned to return to the University.
"We were good friends, very good
friends," Rosenbloom said. "He was
doing really well (at Washtenaw). He
would've gotten back into Michigan."
