Fifty faculty members have urged
the University to obey state law and pull
out all investments of companies
operating in South Africa.
The state recently passed a law or-
derding all state-supported universities
to divest from companies with holdings
in the Apartheid nation.
But the University's top legal coun-
sel, has challenged the law's con-
stitutionality saying it gives the
legislature too much control over
The Regents, however, could decide
as early as March whether to obey the
law and divest, challenge it in court, or
keep the present investment policy and
wait and see what action the state will
The letter accuses University officers
and Regents of ignoring "a strong sent-
iment for divestment from South
Africa" on campus. "Now the
representatives of the people of
Michigan and its Governor have sent
the leaders of the University the same
message - to divest," the letter reads
The letter also argues that divesting
can be helpful to Michigan since
several companies with holdings in
South Africa have diverted production
to South Africa to pay workers lower
"The issue is to say yes to equality,
yest to democracy in South Africa, and
no to racism," the letter reads.

woman in the face several times.
A pizza delivery man, Larry
Schroeder, saw the incident and stop-
ped to help. "At first I thought it was a
domestic squabble, but not the way he
was beating her up," said Schroeder.
THE DRIVER told Schroeder he had
a gun and would shoot the woman if
Schroeder didn't leave immediately.
The woman continued to fight. The man
then got back into his car and left.
Schroeder was able to get the license
plate number and call police.
Oxford Housing Resident Director
Kermit Wies said that some sort of
escort service might come out of the
abduction incident. "I'm sure at the
next staff meeting we will discuss it (an
escort service) but I wouldn't be sur-
prised if something like that came out
of it," he said. Wies added that the co-
op already has a buddy system which is

CHICAGO (AP) - Drinking three
beers a day may give an inactive per-
son as much protection against heart
disease as running gives to
marathoners, a new study suggests.
In a Baylor College of Medicine
study, 16 marathon runners, 15 joggers
and 13 inactive men were taken off
liquor for three weeks. For the next
three weeks, each drank three, 12-
ounce beers daily, according to a report
in today's issue of the Journal of the
American Medical Association.
The idea was to measure the par-
ticipants' levels of high-density
lipoprotein cholesterol, known as
HDLC, which some studies have in-
dicated protects against heart disease.
