Ann Arbor, Michigan - Friday, April 15, 1983

The University Regents voted 6-2 yesterday to sell about 90
percent of the University's stocks in companies operating in
South Africa as a statement against the country's apartheid
At the same time they voted 5-3 to challenge in court a state
law which requires the University to divest all of its stocks in
those companies by 1984.
AFTER SEVEN years of rallies, demonstrations, and even
a state law ordering the University to divest, the Regents
yesterday reversed two previous decisions to retain stocks. By
keeping the stocks, the board had hoped to encourage the
companies to promote social change in the country.
The resolution came after 18 students, professors, alumni,
and Ann Arbor residents - backed by a crowd of about 90
people -urged the Regents to sell University interests in that
In an effort to placate Michigan firms that have close
ties to the University and to gain standing to challenge the
state law in court, the University will retain about $5 million
of stocks in Michigan-based companies which operate in
South Africa. As of Dec. 31, 1982, the University owned a total
of about $50 million worth of stocks in businesses operating in
ALTHOUGH THE University is retaining some of the
stocks, a percentage of the dividends they yield will be
devoted to programs which promote "educational oppor-
tunities" in South Africa, according to the resolution.
The Regents' vote represents the largest divestment of funds
University Regents voted 6-2 last night to divest 90 percent of their stocks in South Africa. The vote capped seven years
of protests over the University's holdings.

Rape can leave its emotional mark on
victims for years. But friends and
family of rape victims can also suffer
serious emotional stress following an
attack - stress which counselors at the
Assault Crisis Center say they can help
According to Judith Price,
educational coordinator at the center,
people with close emotional ties to rape
victims often suffer from problems
similar to what the victim experiences.
THE ANGER, guilt, and excessive
caution family and friends experience
after the attack can interfere with the
full recovery of a victim, Price said.
"(Friends and family) are the sup-
port network that a victim relies on,"
Price said. "We might be able to help a
victim in a counseling situation, but we
aren't with the victim all of the time."
She said victims who have steady sup-
port from friends and family often
begin their recovery more quickly.
Because of this, counseling for the
victim's "support network" is as im-
portant as help for the victim herself.
Price said people need to know how to
help a victim.
"THERE IS often a feeling of
anxiety. Usually when they find out
what they can do to help a victim, it
relieves the anxiety," she said.

THE GUIDELINES, passed by the

The faculty vote capped nearly two
years of an often bitter struggle to ex-
tend the restrictions on classified
research to include non-classified
research as well.
Classified research differs from non-
classified research in that details of
classified projects are not open to the
public. Research sponsors decide
whether a project will be classified or
MOST Department of Defense-funded
