Exam anxiety
sparks student
(Continued from Page 1)


competitive nature of the University is
partly to blame for the pressure during
finals week. Although the LSA junior
said she isn't too concerned with
grades, there is still the feeling that
you hope everyone else is having as
much trouble as you are."
"EVERY conversation you hear is
about finals," she said.
Becoming too preoccupied with
studying however, can be hazardous to
your health, according to University
Senior Counselor Tom Morson. Studen-
ts can become so overwhelmed by their
study anxiety they begin to link their
academic performance to their self
esteem, he said.
Students can put so much emphasis
on their grades that marks begin to
define their self worth, Morson said. An
"A" paper means the student is an "A"
person, and depression balloons as the
grade drops.
"FOR ME," said Markley RD
Clarke Anderson, "this week has more
impact on my grades than the rest of
the semester."
Despite the pressure, Anderson said
it is important to keep exams in per-
spective. "It's certainly important, but
an hour exam is only an hour of time."

Students also tend to abuse their
bodies during final exams by eating
junk food and drinking too much coffee,
said Morson. Instead of surviving on
Snickers and Cokes, Morson advises
students to eat healthier snacks such as
fruit or decaffinated drinks.
Another problem is that students of-
ten panic because of the unstructured
study time and set unrealistic goals for
themselves such as pledging to "study
all the time," Morson said. To avoid
this students should allot time for fun
activities that will get them out of the
dorm and help improve the quality of
their work, he said.
Morson also recommends that
students find friends to study with and
form an "academic swat team," in-
stead of isolating themselves in a carrel
at the library.
Anxiety is "serious stuff. It's
something people need to learn to deal
with. They shouldn't dismiss it," said
To help students cope with exam
pressure Morson is running a stress
workshop in the Union Monday from 4
to 6 p.m.

Soviet Union silences armistalks
GENEVA, Switzerland - The Soviet Union shut down all nuclear arms
talks with the United States yesterday, breaking off bargaining on long-
range weapons 15 days after walking out of parallel negotiations on medium-
range missiles.,
The Soviet Union discontinued the Strategic Arms Reduction Talks on in
tercontinental nuclear missiles claiming the "global strategic situation"
changed with the arrival of new U.S. missiles in Western Europe.
President Reagan said in Washington he does not interpret the Soviets
departure from strategic arms talks in Geneva as a "walkout" and indicated
he might be willing to meet Soviet President Yuri Andropov for a summit t'
improve relations between the superpowers.
Reagan, speaking to reporters as he left the White House for a speech in
Indianapolis, noted that the end of the Geneva talks on reducing long-range
nuclear weapons was a "regualr adjournment that was scheduled to take
Eastern Airline pact approved
MIAMI - Union leaders yesterday approved a $360 million employee
bailout plan for Eastern Airlines that management and labor hope will avert
default and restore the carrier to financial health.
Leaders of the pilots, machinists and flight attendants unions all agreed to:
an investment program which after one year would give workers control of
25 percent of the carrier's stock and four seats on the board of directors. In..
exchange, they would invest 18 percent to 22 percent of their pay in the firm.
Eastern's 37,500 employees - members of the three unions plus some,
15,500 nonunion workers - must vote on the plan by Dec. 31. Eastern's
bankers must also approve, but a consultant to the Machinists' union said.
that is expected to be a formality.
"The employees are not truly involved in the management of the com-
pany," said Charles Bryan, chief of the 12,000-member Machinists' District
German official cargecd in payoff
BONN, West Germany - Bonn prosecutors yesterday charged Economics
Minister Otto Lambsdorff with accepting the equivalent of $50,000 in bribes
- the first time a West German government minister has been under
criminal charges.
Chief prosecutor Franzbruno Eulencamp filed the charges with the Bonn
district court after nearly two years of investigation into influence peddling
and financing of West German political parties. /
The prosecutor charged that Lambsdorff, 57, took the payoffs in 1977 and
1980 from the Duesseldorf-based Flick holding company to influence a tax
decision in favor of the firm.
Lamsdorff has denied any wrongdoing and insisted he never accepted
payoffs during his six-year-old tenure as Economics Minister. If convicted,
he could be sentenced to as much as five years in prisdn.
It will be at least two months before the case comes to trial, court
spokesman Hans Brenner said. A panel of three judges must first review the
charges and decide whether to issue a formal indictment or drop the case, he
Poor airport equipment caused
Madrid collision, officials say
MADRID, Spain - Union and airline officials cited lack of ground radar
and multicolor warning lights yesterday as major factors in the fiery
collision of two jetliners at Madrid airport that left more than 90 dead.
All 42 people aboard an Aviaco DC-9 were killed and 50 more aboard an
Iberia Air Lines Boeing 727 perished in the collision at the fog-bound airport
Wednesday. A 93rd person, a stewardess, was missing and presumed dead.
Yesterday, government officials joined about 500 people at a funeral Mass
for the victims at Barajas Airport.
The field later reopened to traffic, but passengers on outbound Iberia
flights did not receive their usual Spanish newspapers. Iberia said it wanted
to avoid upsetting travelers with stories and photos of the collision.
Meanwhile, the president of the Spanish Air Traffic Controllers'
Association, Mariano Hernandez, said the runway signal lights at the airport
were not sufficient for conditions of heavy fog.
"We're not just starting to criticize these conditions now. We've been
complaining about them for a long time," he told reporters.
Jose Antonio Silva, a pilot and member of the Aviaco board, said the
collision might not have occurred if the runways had a signal system of
multicolor lights, like many large airports.
Citizens angry at housing order
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Angered townspeople said yesterday it will be
difficult for them to meet a federal judge's Dec. 15 deadline to integrate
public housing by forcing blacks and whites to swap apartments.
The order issued last week by U.S. District Judge William Wayne Justice
emerged from a 1980 lawsuit alleging housing discrimination in the East
Texas town of 4,500 people located 140 miles northeast of Dallas.
Major L.D. Williamson said as of yesterday only one white woman, Doris
Holder, 44, had moved into the black housing project called Cheatham
Heights and one black family, headed by Lillie Mae Ricks, 44, had moved to
the white project known as College Heights.
Mrs. Holder said she gave up a two-bedroom apartment for a one-bedroom
Mrs. Ricks said she gave up a four-bedroom apartment with two
bathrooms for a three bedroom, one bath unit.
Justice's order seeks a 50-50 racial balance in the projects, each of which
have .about 50 apartment units with rents ranging from $2 a month to about
