Women need business
look, consultant says

Daily Photo by JEFF SCHRIER
At the Michigan League last night; Heiko Oberman, a history professor from West
Germany, says Martin Luther has been portrayed inaccurately.
History has hidden

It's been 500 years, but the debate still
Scholars from around the world, who
came to the University this week to
attend a conference marking the 500th -
Snniversary of Martin Luther's birth,
ast night heard the symposium's final
speaker directly refute Hans Kung, the
controversial Catholic priest who
opened the conference Monday.
Prof. Heiko Oberman, a historian
from the University of Tubingen in
West Germany and colleague of Kung,
said Kung's "ecumenism by coalition,"
which calls for suppressing religious
differences in order to attain peace,
goes against the teachings of Luther.
LUTHER "would have harsh words
about single-world Protestantism,"
said Oberman, in his speech entitled,
"The Un-ecumenical Martin Luther."
He jokingly criticized the religious
views of Kung - who did not attend last
night's lecture - as being "rather
As an historian and a self described
"neo-Protestant," Oberman takes issue

with most portrayals of Martin Luther.
Instead of "search(ing) for an
historical figure," many scholars set
out "to canonize a saint" in their ap-
proach, he said.
OBERMAN stressed Jthe need to
present Luther as he existed in the 15th
Century, rather than presenting Luther
from a modern perspective, or an over-
zealous Protestant viewpoint. "The
man himself and his convictions have
been left behind" in favor of the
ecumenical Luther by "Protestants
who took the side of his opponents, but
would not let go of his name," Oberman
- said.
Oberman criticized modern
Protestants for glorifying Luther as a
Protestant reformer. "Martin Luther is
a Catholic, and not the first
Protestant," who "never designated
himself as a reformer," said Oberman.
Portrayals of Luther ignore the fact
that Luther believed in the devil, and
that Luther valued sexuality.
Oberman called for "a revitalized
Christianity," one which pursues a
"joi de vivre," and treats sensuality as
Luther did, as "a gift of God."

BUT HIGH quality suits come with
high price tags. A hand-made, nine-
ounce wool suit, which a woman can
wear 12 months of the year, can cost
between $300 and $400. Despite the
price, "ultimately, you will benefit
financially," Carroll said.
Katie Donohue, an LSA senior who at-
tended the speech, said she liked the
idea of investment dressing. "I think in-
meet Hal

A GROUP of about 50 gay rights ac-
tivists used the affair to present
Shapiro with a letter protesting his
delays in establishing a campus non-
discrimination policy toward gays.
The group, called Lesbian and Gay
Rights on Campus (LaGROC), gave
Shapiro a deadline of Oct. 14 to respond
to their request, "or else," said Bruce
Aaron, a LaGROC leader. Just what
that "else" might bedhas not been
determined yet, Aaron said.
Shapiro refused to say what he plans
to do, although he said he understood
their position.
LAGROC members passed out but-
tons and stickers that said "Oct. 14"
and students seemed sympathetic to
their position. Even some University
administrators wore buttons. When a
LaGROC member asked Vivian
Shapiro if she'd wear a button, the
president's wife politely declined, but
kept the button.
LaGR'OC originally asked Shapiro to
recommend a formal University policy
last April.
After the reception, Aaron told the
Daily that "the longer Shapiro waits,
the more likely disruptive tactics would
become necessary."
ASIDE FROM the protest, students
generally said they would like more
contact with the president and his wife.
"There should be more events to see
Mrs. Shapiro so she can have more than
a 'wife' image," said Peggy Vestervelt,
an LSA senior. Vestervelt's friend, LSA
senior Beth Carlson, said she was im-
pressed by Mrs. Shapiro. "She's like a
mom," Carlson said.
Both Carlson and Vestervelt said past
receptions at the President's house
were more intimate.
"YOU COULD explore their house. It
made us more aware of the Shapiros as
people," said Vestervelt.
Vivian Shapiro said next year's
reception will be at her house.
Both Shapiros said they wished they
could meet students regularly as past
presidents have with monthly teas.
BUT THE University is too big now to
coordinate regular events, said the
president. "With 35,000 students, it is
just too many."
Shapiro said he "feels good" about
the reception whether it's at his home
or in the Union because he enjoys
meeting students. Shapiro said he's
asked students what they're studying,
but there's a limited amount you can
do in 30 or 40 seconds."
.who met Shapiro for the first time
yesterday said the president seemed
like a "smart guy" and he felt comfor-
itable having him in charge of the
The reception is a good opportunity to
bring students into contact with the
president they might otherwise not
meet in four years, added Beth
Ecanow, LSA senior'
"It's such a big University, it's im-
portant that they try and give it some
personal touch," she said.
But Linder was more skeptical, "It's
P.R. The president does it once a year."

terviewing is always a frightening ex-
perience and it would be good to go in
there with confidence knowing that you
look good," Donohue said.
Carroll "made me more aware that
people really do pay attention to the
clothing you wear," said Jacqueline
Cowling, a graduate student in com-
. CARROLL SAID she decided six
years ago that she wanted to move from
the life of a happy homemaker to the
business world. "All of my children
were going to college and' pursuing
careers, and Ireached a point where I
wanted to do something for me. It was
time to occupy this busy mind of mine."
Carroll now owns a traditional
clothing shop in Birmingham, which
opened before John Molloy's popular
Dress for Success was published.
Carroll said that when she got started,
she had to "adopt a businesss attitude
to get rid of the mommy look."
A graduate of the University of
Miami (Florida) in psychology, Carroll
said she presently is divorced because
she made a choice to pursue a business
career. "I was married to a very suc-
cessful insurance agent who said it
disgraced him to have his wife work
outside of his home," Carroll said.
CARROLL'S store carries only
private label clothing from New York
manufacturers. "They design the
clothing to my specifications. Now that
clothing manufacturers understand the
concept, that two piece suits is what the
consumer wants and that it's not just a
fad but here to stay, they're listening to
what we need."
In response to a question at the
seminar yesterday, Carroll recom-
mended that women "wear classic
floppy bow (ties) because it gives a
finished look. We don't want to look like
a sucker or look preppy." a
Carroll also advised women to keep
an extra pair of panty hose when on the
job "We must always be prepared."

tion to buy included in a lease, com-
mission member Richard Deem, a
Republican councilman from the 2nd
Ward, said the site is being presented
as only a temporary solution to last
0hrough the winter.
The house could shelter about 25 per-
sons a night, commission members
Commission member Letty Wickliffe
who lives near the proposed site, said
that residents of the neighborhood ap-
prove of the idea. "I have talked to
people in the neighborhood of the
proposed location and they are all for
this project," she said. -
WICKLIFFE SAID the shelter would
e better than the transient rooming
ouse that exists now, "where they
have had problems paying their bills."
Wickliffe added that the neighbors..
would like the Salvation Army to be

hired to run the house.
Jack Wilson, a Salvation Army
representative who was at the meeting,
said that the possibility of the group
taking control existed, but that ap-
proval from a central office, is
THE COMMISSION chose to recom-
mend the leasing of a site over two
other options. One would have been to
use a community center, such as a
school or church, but a suitable location
was not available. The second option
would have been to continue a voucher
system, where indigents find shelter in
a local hotel and present a voucher for
repayment by the city. But such a
system "is just too expensive," said
Rev. James Lewis of St. Andrews
Episcopal Church, a commission mem-
ber. "The people who would be using
this system need a cofiimuniy at-
mosphere that is simply not here."
