programs
By NEIL CHASE
The five internal LSA review com-
mittees established last month will
have to suggest cuts ranging from 10 to
75 percent in the programs at which
they are looking, LSA Dean Peter
Steiner told the committee members.
"As we all know, these times call for
difficult yet immediate action," Steiner
said in a memo to the sixteen professors
who comprise the five committees. The
memo outlined the areas to be studied
and guidelines for the reviews.
THE COMMITTEES were asked to
examine the effects of various levels of
budget cuts in each program and in-
vestigate the possibility of finding sup-
port from outside the University and
shifting some functions to different
units.
The review committee and their fun-
ctions are outlined as follows:
*The committee on foreign languages
will evaluate the effectiveness of
having teaching assistants instruct the
courses and also try to find-new
technologies for teaching languages at
a lower cost. They are to propose cuts
up to 30 percent in the those areas.
" The committee on selected centers
will review the Center for Research on
Economic Development, the Center for
South and Southeast Asian Studies, and
the Center for Western European
Studies for possible cuts of up to 75 per-
cent;
* The off-campus units committee will
review the Botanical Gardens, the
Biological Station in northern
Michigan, and Camp Davis, a

By ROB FRANK
Black enrollment at the University
has declined by 100 students since last
year, dropping the percentage of blacks
on campus to 4.7 percent, according to
statistics just completed by the Office
of the Registrar.
The statistics show that, once again,
University officials have been unable to
reverse the trend of declining black
enrollment, which has continued since
1976.{
THE SURVEY, which is usually not
released until the Regents' February
meeting, showed that the number of
American Indian students has also
declined slightly since last year. The
number of Hispanic students increased
slightly and the number of Asian
students went up by more than 100, ac-
cording to the report.
"Clearly our efforts are not sufficient
to date," said University President
Harold Shapiro. "We're looking for
new ideas."
The report shows a wide variation in
the success with which different schools
and colleges have been able to reverse
the University's recent record of black
enrollment declines.
SIGNIFICANT drops in the number
of black students occurred in the School
of Education, LSA, Public Health, and
Social Work. Notable gains, however,
were made in the School of Business
Administration, which increased
minority enrollment by 40 students, 11
of whom were black.
Vice President for Student Services
Henry Johnson said last week the
figures are "frankly another indication
that we are not succeeding in either
enrollment or retention."
The University set a goal in 1970 to at-
tain 10 percent black enrollment by
1973, Johnson said. "It (the University)
certainly has not met that goal," he
said.
"The only reason minority figures
aren't falling faster is because of the
Asian students," Johnson added.

previous years has boasted of main-

goes after $10 million

more in Pentagon funds

By BILL SPINDLE
University researchers have applied
for nearly $10 million of research
equipment to be awarded his year un-
der a new program financed by the def-
ense department.
The program offers a total of $30
million annually for the next five years
to yet-to-be selected universities across
the nation to help boost the "capability
of the universities to perform research
in support of national defense," accor-
ding to the 'DOD announcement
distributed to researchers last month.

THE DEFENSE Department said in
the announcement that it hopes to boost
defense research capabilities by pur-
chasing equipment for universities
.such as microscopes, spectrometers,
and computers for research projects
ranging from ship hydrodynamics to
pest control.
Under the plan, universities conduc-
ting DOD research or willing to conduct
such research will be favored by the
department.
Although the announcement
stipulated that "the proposed equip-

ment will be used productively on
research of high interest to the Depar-
tment of Defense," it may also be used
on projects other than those contracted
to the department.
ALTHOUGH some at the University
see the program as an opportunity to
replace outdated equipment, the
prospect of more defense dollars on
campus has not been unopposed among
faculty members.
Some professors fear the University
could become dependent on the new

taining high minority enrollment,
showed a drop of 30 minority students.
Twenty of those were black.
Education Dean Joan Stark blamed
the decline on the school's decreasing
budget. "We decided to close our oc-
cupational educational program two
years ago because of budget cuts and
we've had to restrict enrollment in our
guidance and counseling program both
of which were popular with minority
students," she said.
Stark said she did not have any im-
mediate ideas to reverse the decline
because of the school's uncertain
future. "No possible plans can be made
until the reviews are complete," she
said. "Everything is in a state of am-
biguity."
Don Haefner, assistant dean in the
School of Public Health, which lost 23
minority students this year, said recent
reductions in federal aid and
detered new minority students.
"We have half as many federal
traineeship dollars as we had last

War freed Lebanese
.from PLO, expert says

By SCOTT KASHKIN
An Israeli expert on the Middle East said last
night that the Lebanese people have a brighter
future today than they had living under the rule
of the Palestinian Liberation Organization
before the invasion by Israel.
Zvi Elpeleg, a world-renowned authority on
the subject, gained international headlines two
weeks ago when defending his country's invasion
of Lebanon before an international inquiry in
SOslo, Norway of alleged Israeli violations of in-
ternational law.
ELPELEG, spoke to an audience of 100 in a
Michigan Union conference room, ending a
three-day visit to Ann Arbor sponsored by
several city Jewish groups.
As the Commander-in-Chief of the Civilian Aid
Unit which is currently restoring order in
Lebanon, Elpeleg, claims to have first-hand ex-
perience with both the Lebanese and the
Palestinians nations.
. Elpeleg said that Israel's ousting of the PLO in
southern Lebanon has ended a reign of terror
which began in the early seventies with the entry
of the PLO into that area.
THE POWERLESS Lebanese have been sub-
ject to the PLO "terrorism and gangs of the most
brutal types" Elpeleg said, reciting a list that in-
cluded "confiscation of property, imprisonment,
rape, maiming, assassination, and mutilation of'

babies.
"The PLO should be held responsible for the
bringing about of the making of Lebanon as no-
man's land, no government, no police, no cour-
ts."
"We did not fight against the Lebanese,
neither did we fight against the Palestinians. We
fought against the PLO, who by its founding
policies banned political solutions (from the
Middle East)."
THE PLO inhibits the Camp David accord with
its threats to any and all people that support it,
he said, adding, "40 Palestinian participants of a
Camp David discussion were assassinated by the
PLO and since then, not a single man would
assert himself (in support of the peace plan).
All of a sudden, the war is over and we find
there is a summit for peace. And the only
question remains, 'Why after the war, why not
before, why did it take this terrible war to get
things moving?' "
World criticism of Israel is unfair, said
Elpeleg, comparing Israel's position before the
war to that of the United States during the Cuban
missile crisis.
"Israel is judged as a Western nation and it
should be. But this is a double standard. Israel's
,every action is scrutinized, yet nobody stops to
even consider the actions of Syria or the Soviets
in Afghanistan," he said.

Jesuit activist
blames Pentagon
and bgbusiness
for arms race
By RITA GIRARMJI
Special to the Daily
YPSILANTI- "Be an alien in a culture which is all too
ready to suffocate conscience in the name of conformity,"
outspoken Jesuit priest and anti-nuclear activist Daniel
Barrigan advised during his, speech at Eastern Michigan
University yesterday.
Barrigan, well-known for his anti-government activism
since the 1960's, spoke at the invitation of the United
Ministries of Higher Education as part of a three-day
residency with EMU's Christian Ethics Institution.
DURING HIS speech, he accused the Pentagon and big
business of being "ridden with untruths" and called for non-
violent resistance to both.
Barrigan called the Pentagon a "sanitized" war machine
where there are "clean decisions made by clean bodies in
clean rooms about filthy death elsewhere." The role of the
government, Barrigan said, is "to create and sustain an anti-
church" and he called the arms buildup a form of idol wor-
ship.
The Jesuit also condemned private industry's role in the
arms race as "that multi-corporate piracy of great thieves."
HE SAID, "Only the church can stop the arms race." He

TODAY
Red blooded athletes
HEY WON'T BEAT us in football, and they won't
beat us in the blood drive. The first tallies are in
from the Ohio State-Michigan blood drive, and as
of Sunday night the donors from Ann Arbor have
squeaked into the lead, 2,462 units to Columbus' 2,010. The
donations have been coming in at both campuses since Nov.
1, and will continue until Saturday. Michigan's 452 blood
unit lead is slim, however, says regional Red Cross

mitory. This week, according to Mosher-Jordan residents,
is meant to give freshmen a surprise taste of "off-the-wall"
dormitory life, and a chance to make new friends within the
sometimes lonely University housing halls. Throughout the
week there will be a host of different ZUGA festivities, in-
cluding a Mr. and Mrs. ZUGA beauty pageant, an official
ZUGA "sleep-in" tomorrow morning, and a ZUGA Diag
rally set for Friday afternoon. The events will culminate
with a ZUGA banquet Friday evening in the cafeteria at
Mosher Jordan, where Mr. and Mrs. ZUGA will preside
over a dinner for all residents. The idea for ZUGA week was

association of Oldsmobile dealers, put up the 16 billboards
in August. Protests began almost immediately, and the
dealers now say the ads will come down after Nov. 30. "The
eight of us have probably received a total of 25 or 30 calls,"
said Warren Abelson, president of the group and owner of
Abelson Oldsmobiles in Keyport. "I explained that I didn't
think there was any exploitation of women involved," he
said. "We had a choice of using a man or a woman, and
those are your only choices." "The idea is you get more
value, selection and service with .The Shore Good Old
Guys," said Bernard Zlotnick, president of The Zlotnick
