Spartans,
beat Blue
despite
Turner s
streak
By PAUL HELGREN
Special to the Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan State
found out last night that the best cure
for a losing streak is to play a team that
is also struggling.
For the Spartans, that team was
Michigan. A fired up State squad ended
its seven-game skid with a 72-67 victory
over the Wolverines before 10,004 at
Jennison Fieldhouse.
'I KNEW they were gonna play well,"
said Michigan coach Bill Frieder after
the game. "If you didn't think they
were gonna play well, then you don't
know what you're talking about."
The loss was Michigan's third straight
arid fourth in its last five games. The
Wolverines are 4-5 in the Big Ten and
effectively out of contention for the con-
ference title.
MSU won its first game in 29 days to
up its record to 2-7 in the conference,
and 8-10 overall.
THE WIN took a lot of pressure off of
State coach Jud Heathcote.
"Someone just told me that this was
our first win in 29 days," said Heath-
cote, "but it seemed more like 29 years.
What better way to end a losing streak
than with a win over Michigan."
Michigan guard Eric Turner almost
spoiled the Spartans bid to end their
streak. Turner matched last Saturday's
brilliant four-overtime performance
versus Illinois with another gem,
scoring 21 points.
"I THOUGHT Turner was the key,"
Frieder said. "He really made big
baskets and gave us a lift."
Turner led a second-half comeback
with 12 points and an assist during a 14-
4 Wolverine run. The rally erased an 11-
point deficit and cut the Spartan lead to

measles
outbreak

regarding military research at the University.

By BILL SPINDLE
A measles outbreak on campus has
prompted state and University officials
to begin a massive immunization drive
in all University dormitories.'-
Two cases of the highly contagious
disease have been reported at the
University in the last two weeksi Both
were in Markley dormitory. The most
recent case was diagnosed yesterday.
BECAUSE the virus began in
Markley, residents in that dormitory
were the first to receive immunizations
yesterday: Over 200 showed up for the
shots within the first hour, according to
Caesar Briefer, director of University
Health Services.
State health officials are asking all
students, especially those who live in
dormitories, to get a shot if they have
not received one since 1968 when the
most effective vaccine was first put into
wide public use.
Briefer estimated that "anywhere
between 20 percent and 50 percent of
students may not have-the proper im-
munization."
ALTHOUGH only two cases of the
disease have been diagnosed, the virus
can spread rapidly, warned Eleanor Puffe, a
spokeswoman for the University Health
Services.
"Two cases is not an epidemic, two
cases are an outbreak," she said. "But
two people can be infecting a lot of
people they know."
The problem at the University ap-
pears to be related to a state-wide out-
break of measles. Both Washtenaw
County and the City of Port Huron have
had "epidemic" spreading of the
disease, said Susan Cares, a
Washtenaw County Department of
Health supervisor. Ten cases have been
reported in Washtenaw County, she
said. There is no direct link, however,
between those cases and the ones at the
University, she said.

UNIVERSITY officials plan to cori-
tinue immunizing students at Markley
and Health Services through tomorrow.
They plan to move through all the other
dormitories starting Monday, and hope
to finish the drive before spring break
which begins on Feb. 17.
Briefer said that immunization will
not be offered at the dorms on Saturday
and Sunday because officials feared too
few students would take advantage of
the shots over the weekend.
"The efficiency of a weekend

campus locations for the'next

program would be pretty low," he said.
"If you are going to be there, you want
to get maximum penetration."
HE SAID they have to finish the im-
munizations by spring break to prevent
spreading the disease over the state
and nation.
"That's an epidemiologists's night-
mare," he said. "To have a bunch of
people with measles go off all over the
country."
One of the most contagious diseases,
measles can be a fairly dangerous
illness in: adults, said Patrick
Remington, a state health department
official who was helping distribute
shots at Markley. Although 'children
usually experience only mild sym-
ptoms, adults often develop high fever,
a flu-like sickness, and a large rash
which usually begins on the face, he
said.
"Although commonly thought of as a
harmless childrens" disease, it more

The Progressive Student Network had to abort a planned
laboratory sit-in yesterday morning, when they were
greeted at the lab by a locked door and six security officers.
But they took their protest to President Harold Shapiro in-
stead.
The group of 17 people gave up plfns to take over the
Cooley Electronics Laboratory on North Campus and
walked into Shapiro's office to demand an end to defense
research on campus.
SHAPIRO WAS out when the group sat down around his
desk at 10:35, but he walked in a few minutes later with his
hands in his pocket, and said "What's up?"
"We were wondering, why the University finds it
necessary to protect military research with half-a-dozen
security guards," responded PSN member Naomi Braine,

a Residential College sophomore.
Shapiro then sat down at his desk and answered the
group's questions about defense research. He also agreed
to appear at a forum Feb. 9 in the Michigan Union, if the
forum is "an open and free exchange of ideas."
TOM MARX, who helped found the group in the summer
of 1982, called the meeting "a victory. We got what we wan-
ted, and we did civil disobedience . . . we got the ad-
ministration to agree to a forum which we have been trying
to do for two-and-a-half years."
Marx said he was concerned that the University found
out about the sit-in, but said there could be "a million
reasons for the leak.
"I don't think someone is spying within the
organization," he said. "We're just not a really tight-lipped,
secretive organization."

Psych0logist testifies in

By CAROLINE MULLER
A professional psychologist testified
yesterday in Ann Arbor U.S. District
Court that both Robert Fulmer and
Louis Molitoris were "psychological
hostages" and "stripped of their free
will to make conscious choices"
because they were allegedly held as
slaves on a Chelsea farm for over 10
years.
Dr. Harley Stock, who works for the
State Center for Forensic Psychiatry in
Ypsilanti and has testified in over a
hundred different court trials as an ex-
pert witness, was the only witness
called to the stand yesterday in the
state's first slavery case in more than
60 years.
STOCK WAS questioned yesterday by
defense attorneys Ivan Barris, David
Goldstein, and Thomas Stringer, the
three lawyers representing Ike Koz-
minski, 61, his wife Margarethe, 56, and
their son John, 30, who are each
charged with one count of conspiracy to
violate civil rights and two counts of in-
voluntary servitude.
Stock said during his testimony that
both.Fulmer and Molitoris are mentally
retarded and show clear signs of brain
damage. He said Fulmer has an IQ of
67, Molitoris, 60. Ninety-nine percent of
the population would score higher on a

fil
trital
standard IQ test, he added.
"These scores are very, very low,"
Stock said. "It's almost impossible to
get lower unless someone is in-
stitutionalized."
STOCK HAD earlier administered
several tests to the two farmhands, one
which involved the two making human
drawings.
"(Fulmer's) drawings were empty,
as is Mr. Fulmer psychologically,"
Stock observed. "He's washed out. He
isn't interactive with his environment."
Stock said the two farmhands went
through "involuntary conversion,' a
process where patients change their
behavior against their will. He called
the case "captivity syndrome," and
described it as a breaking down of free
will.
STOCK listed ten possible causes for
the victims' states:
- exposure to mental and physical
abuse over an extended period of time;
* subjection to such abuse several
times a day;
" relative isolation from people;
" loss of social support systems such
as outside family;
" attacks on personal characteristics;.
" lack of privacy;
" feelings of being trapped with no

Groundhog sees six
more weeks of winter

By LARRY MISHKIN
Special to the Daily
PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. - Forget
about an early spring and brace your-
self for some more winter weather,
despite what the weatherman might
say.
Amid shouts of "We want Phil,"
Punxsutawney Phil, the only true
weather prognosticator, came out of
his burrow on Gobblers Know at 7:20
a.m. yesterday and saw his shadow
over his right shoulder, indicating six
more weeks of winter.
PHIL IS THE "official" groundhog
the nation watches for predictions
each February 2. According to the
legend, if the groundhog comes out of
his hole and sees his shadow, it scares
him back into his hole to wait out six
more weeks of winter. If it is cloudy,
the groundhog expects an early
spring.
As the 14 members of the Groun-
dhog Club's exclusive Inner Circle
gathered around the entrance to
Phil's hole and hundreds of spectators
looked on, club President James

Means read a declaration making the
groundhog's 98th annual prediction
official.
"Phil's always accurate," Means
said. "Last year he was perfect. He
didn't see his shadow and a few days
later I was outside playing golf."
" PUNXSUTAWNEY Mayor James
Nelles agreed that Phil knows his
stuff, and explained what the
ceremony means to his city.
"We get an influx of about 1,500
people who participate in the various
Groundhog's Day activities," Nelles
said at the post-ceremony breakfast.
"The publicity for the community is
phenomenal. This gives the people an
identity. I'm a believer in all of this.
Since I've lived here, Phil has never
been wrong."
And apparently there are many
others who believe in Phil's
forecasting ability. Spectators, many
of whom had been waiting since 3:30
a.m., came from cities as far away as
Ann Arbor, Philadelphia, Pa., and
Ithaca, N.Y: for the occasion.

Do it in Detroit
N AN ATTEMPT to dispel a notion that Detroit is
a "blah town," city officials are launching a $1 million
promotional campaign with the slogan "Do It In Detroit."

"Pays for A's" project, it's-awarding student members a
bonus dividend for each A they received during the fall
semester. Students began collecting the bonuses Wed-
nesday. "There's about 40 in line. They're lined up out the
door," said Ron Pape, the credit union's general manager.
"The first girl had five A's," he chuckled. Her reward was
$2 credited to her account. Pape said it's possible the credit
union might begin paying extra dividends next year to
those students who demonstrate leadership, by being elec-
ted president of a campus club or being selected a dor-

issue. All the panel had to do was change the classification
of skunks in, the Virginia game Hlaws from "nusiance" to
"fur-bearing" animals. Assistant State Game Com-
missioner John Randolph told the House Conservation &
Natural Resources Committee that a permit is necessary
for the possession of a fur-bearing animal. "And, since we
don't approve of trying to domesticate skunks, we would
not issue a permit to keep one unless it was related to the
fur industry," he 'said. The bill's patron, Del. George
Grayson of Williamsburg, said the measure is nesessary

credit for their courses.
