The University's own version of Com-
puterland opens for business Monday in the
School of Education building - and as any
good grand opening sale should, the "store"
will be offering its best merchandise at about
50 percent off.
Students, faculty, and staff members will
be able to place orders for the Apple Lisa and
recently-introduced Macintosh computers at
sharply reduced prices under an agreement
between the computer maker and the Univer-
sity.
THE MACINTOSH, which is being touted as
the next generation of personal computers,
will cost $1,340.40, including word and graphic

omputer
processing software and 10 memory disks. The
computer is retailing nationwide for about
$2,700.
Although the University has not set a price
for the Lisa 2 model, a memo released by
University officials Monday said the price
"might be in the range of $2,850," including
software and disks, which would cut about
$800 from the regular retail price.
The University will also sell some ac-,
cessories for the machines, although these
will not be available immediately.
OFFICIALS ARE unsure how long delivery
of the units might take after orders are accep-
ted beginning next week. Greg Marks, an
assistant to the University provost, said

delivery could take up to two months until the
demand for the computers subsides.
nationally. "The dealers are having trouble
getting machines and I expect we will have
some troubles getting them too," he said.
The discounted computer sales, a new ven-
ture for the University, are the result of a deal
Apple arranged with two dozen universities
across the country.
"It's the second recent agreement between
Apple and The University of Michigan. Late
last year, the company agreed to sell the
engineering college $8 million worth of
equipment for an undisclosed price, which
was widely rumored to be between $4 million
and $7 million. Through these deals, the

University hopes to increase the number of-
terminals it owns while making it easier for
students to buy their own computers.
COMPUTER-industry analysts say Apple's
efforts in the college market are an attempt to
displace International Business Machines
Corp. as the leader in personal computers.
Apple appears to be willing to accept a lower
price for its Macintosh in return for the ex-
posure the computer will get to the next
generation of professionals.
At the University, interest in the Macintosh
already is high. Yesterday phone calls from
people interested in the deal poured into the
Microcomputer Education Center, a special
office at 3014 School of Education building

that has been set up to demonstrate the new
machinery.
The center should receive demonstrator
models of the Macintosh and Lisa 2 by the end
of this week and will have them operating by
Monday, said Peggy Schmidt, the center's
manager.
ANY UNIVERSITY student, professor, or
staff member will be able to use the center for
advice on what type of computer he or she
might need, said Schmidt. She said the center
would offer advice on all types of personal
computers and would not favor the Apple
brand.
The center also hopes to demonstrate

Victim
in slav

testifies
ery trial

By CAROLINE MULLER
A 57-year-old retarded man allegedly
held as a slave for 16 years by a Chelsea
farming couple testified yesterday in
U.S. District Court in Ann Arbor that he
wasn't satisfied- with the living con-
ditions on the farm but was afraid to
leave.
Robert Fulmer, who has lived in
various foster homes since the age of
five, testified that he was told by far-
mowner Ike Kozminski that he wasn't
supposed to leave the farm.
IKE KOZMINSKI, 61, his wife, Mar-
garethe, 56, and their son, John, 30, are
each charged with one count of con-
spiracy to violate civil rights and two
counts of involuntary servitude for
holding two workers on the farm again-
st their will.
"I didn't know what (the Kozminskis)
would do to me," Fulmer said.
"(Margarethe) told me if I didn't stay

there, she would put me back in
training school."
Fulmer, who was enrolled by the
state into the Wayne County Training
School at age 11 to learn basic farming
skills, began working for the Kozmin-
skis in 1967 after working at several
other neighboring farms.
ALTHOUGH FULMER had frequent
lapses of memory during his testimony
he said Ike Kozminski assaulted him
one time, but added that he had seen
Ike twice strike Louis Molitoris, the
other farmworker allegedly held for
over 10 years. Fulmer said Ike Kozmin-
ski once cut Molitoris' eye with his ring.
During examination by his
prosecuting attorney Virginia Morgan,
Fulmer said his and Louis' work hours"
had increased over the years while
their wages dwindled to nothing.
When he first came to the farm,
Fulmer said, he began working at 5:00

a.m. and received about $15 per week.
For the past few years, he said, he and
Molitoris began work at 3:00 a.m. and
continued "somtimes until 9:30, 10:00
because the herdsmen didn't want to do
nothing.
THEIR PAY decreased to $1 per
week, Fulmer said, and eventually they
were paid nothing.
Fulmer listed different types of food
they were fed while on the Kozininskis'
farm, including lunchmeat, hotdogs,
bread, ice cream and potatoes.
This contradicted earlier testimony
by witnesses who said the two men
were fed only moldy bread and that
there were maggots in their frying pan.
DEFENSE ATTORNEY Ivan Barris,
who represents Ike Kozminski, asked
Fulmer if he was afraid of Ike. Fulmer
hesitated, but said no.

Salvadorans welcome Shultz

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) - Secretary of State
George Shultz said he was "proud to stand together" with the
Salvadoran government, and he assailed violence by both lef-
tist guerrillas and rightist death squads.
On arrival at San Salvador's airport, Shultz called the lef-
tist insurgency a "totalitarian" movement that "depends on
outside support" for its survival.
"OUR ENEMIES are weak," he said. "They represent
forces that are foreign to this hemisphere and offer "only
totalitarianism."
Shultz asserted that "the tactics of totalitarian terror and
the death squads have no place in a democracy."
Shultz's visit to El Salvador, the first stop of a five-nation
tour of Latin America and the Caribbean, was seen as a bid to
boost the morale of the Salvadoran government as it attem-
pts to come to grips with the problems of uninterrupted war-
fare and a faltering economy.
EN ROUTE from Washington, he told reporters he planned
to encourage the government to continue its "definite .
moverment" toward curbing the death squads.
He said that if politically motivated killings go unpunished,

"the ability of the United States to maintain the level of sup-
port which we want to maintain is going to be very seriously
damaged."
With armed security guards patrolling the roof of the air-
port terminal building, Shultz departed from his customary
low-key style of brief remarks at his arrival ceremony.
While the leftist insurgents "have nothing to offer that's
positive," Shultz said, the Salvadoran government is pur-
suing a program that offers "peace, democracy and justice."
He said those values are "good for humanity and offer the
possibility of economic progress."
Afterward, Shultz had lunch with President Alvaro Maana
and the six candidates competing in prsidential elections
scheduled for March 25. Among them was Roberto
d'Aubuisson, El Salvador's most prominent rightist leader,
who has claimed that American interference is impeding the
Salvadoran army's effort to defeat the guerrillas.
American officials beleive d'Aubuisson has tied to rightist
death squads. Two months ago, the State Department turned
down his request for a visa-to visit Miami.
