Oxford rooms become lush suites
By BRUD ROSSMAN
To fill up the 80 vacancies in Oxford Housing, the
University is going to turn three halls in the dor-
mitory into deluxe suites, complete with breakfast,
dinner and room service.
The 58 suites will house participants in School of
Business Administration seminars. The seminars,
conducted by the Division of Management Education
will be expanded from primarily summer sessions to
48 weeks of the year.
"THIS IDEA is a good deal for Oxford, which has
been running some high vacancies," said Dave
Foulke, the assistant director for business operations
in Housing. "What we're doing is filling otherwise
But some Oxford residents may have difficulty get-
ting into the dorm after the renovations are com-
pleted. Because of the suites for the business school,
and a new Kosher Co-op that is going into the dorm,
three of Oxford's current co-ops will be consolidated
"We may have a lottery for spaces, something
we've never had before," said Building Director
Diana Wilson. She said she did not know when the
renovations would begin.
SHARON MACENULTY, head of Oxford's House
Council, said she thinks that by converting the first
floor of the Goddard suites into co-ops, making 42 ad-
ditional spaces available, "we'll have enough space
for returning residents." About 50 percent of Oxford's
300 residents reapply for spaces.
However, that may force transfer students and
late-admission graduate students, historically a
large percentage of the Oxford population, to look
"There is discontent among people living at Ox-
ford, but there is also resignation," said Michael
Cukovich, an LSA senior. "Since the number of
people who are reapplying is not overwhelming,
those who want to live here again can."
In order to avoid creating a hotel-like atmosphere
in Oxford, Housing officials are working with studen-
ts to draw blueprints that will give residents some
privacy from the stream of conferees.
The move should make the business school
seminars more accessible to participants, according
to Frances Green, a program assistant in the school's
Division of Management Education. "Managers and
others'taking part in these seminars were typically
housed in various hotels and the Kalmbach
Management Center," she said.
First embryo transfer baby sees daylght
LONG BEACH, Calif. (UPI) - The
birth of the world's first baby conceived
by planting a fertilized egg in an infer-
tile woman was announced yesterday
by doctors who hailed the process'
potential medical applications.
"He's just beautiful," said Dr. John
Buster, head of the embryo transfer
research project at Harbor-UCLA
BUSTER SAID the infant was born in
Los Angeles County in the last five to 10
days. The controversial and historical
pregnancy ended 38 weeks and five
days after the April 1983 embryo tran-
sfer at Harbor, Buster said.
The healthy male infant was born in
January in Los Angeles County 'to an
unidentified woman in her 30s with an
eight year history of infertility.
Not only does the process offer hope

could bear their husband's children
without passing on their own genetic af-
flictions, he said.
a A REPORT on the process was
published yesterday in the Journal of
the American Medical Association, and
the firm that financed the research said
it would seek to patent the process -

and ethical questions involved in gentic
One prominent critic of the process,
author Jeremy Rifkin, vowed to file
suit against the company, saying the

fundamental challenge to the concept of
parenthood and takes us further down
the road to 'Brave New World."' The
1932 novel paints a grim scenario of
science being manipulated to control

docrinologist who led the research at
Harbor - UCLA Medical Center, told

women are hardly concerned about
'Brave New World.' They're concerned
with babies and children and that's
what this is all about."
In the procedure, a fertile female is
inseminated with sperm from the

National, state jobless rates fall
WASHINGTON - Unemployment dropped to 8 percent in January, the fif-
th consecutive monthly decline and the lowest point in more than two years,
the government reported yesterday.
In Michigan, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped from
11.6 percent in January but its unadjusted rate rose from 11.9 percent to 12.8
The Labor Department, which adjusts figures for seasonal factors when
computing unemployment nationwide and for each state, said the number of
unemployed in Michigan dropped 8,000 to 485,000 last month.
Significant drops in the unemployment rate were recorded nationally for
most demographic groups, with the largest decrease among black workers,
although they remained at more than double the overall rate.
Figlhting intensifies around Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Government troops trying to recapture a key high-
way entrance to Beirut battled with Shiite Moslem militiamen yesterday,
and the fighting spread to several sections of the capital in the worst civil
war flareup in six weeks.
Police said at least 45 people were reported killed in rocket and artillery
barrages on Beirut and its suburbs and in house-to-house fighting for control
of the Galerie Semaan intersection, the southern gateway to the capital.
Both'the Lebanese army and the Shiite militias claimed control of the
area, but the fighting continued. Four rockets hit one edge of the U.S. Marine
base, but no casualties were reported.
Syrian-backed Druse insurgents fired Soviet-made grad rockets on
Beirut's Christian sector and suburban neighborhoods throughout the day,
apparently to ease pressure on their Shiite allies.
The army and .rightist Christian Phalange Party irregulars responded
with artillery barrages on Druse towns and villages in the central moun-
Police said at least 125 were wounded since fighting broke out Thursday
evening. The escalation of the fighting was a new blow to the government of
President Amin Gemayel, which issued new appeals for a cease-fire.
Planes attack Nicaraguan outpost
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Warplanes attacked a border outpost again
yesterday and the Sandinista government ordered its ambassadors to the
United States and Honduras to return home for urgent consultations, a
Foreign Ministry spokesman reported.
Military sources said five planes entering Nicaraguan air space from
Honduras killed five soldiers and wounded at least 10 in a rocket attack on a
military compound for border guards at Manzanillo in Chinaandega provin-
ce and68 miles northwest of Managua.
Nicaragua's left-wing government asked for an emergency meeting of the
U.S. Security Council because of an attack by six warplanes on the Man-
zanillo base that it said occurred Thursday. It said three soldiers were killed
and three wounded in that raid.
The council went into session yesterday afternoon in New York on the
complaint, which said Nicaragua was the victim of aggression by "coun-
terrevolutionary mercenaries...trained and financed by the present ad-
ministration of the United States."
Space shuttle soars into orbit
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The shuttle soared back into space yesterday
for eight days of commerce and derring-do, and its astronauts quickly ear-
ned $10 million for Uncle Sam, launching a satellite once booked aboard a
European rocket and lured back to NASA.
The blastoff capped one of the smoothest countdowns yet at Cape
Canaveral, giving space agency officials increased confidence they will be
able to follow this mission with eight or nine more shuttle flights this year.
Astronauts Vance Brand, Robert "Hoot" Gibson, Robert Stewart, Ronald
McNair and Bruce McCandless had some more mundane business to take
care of before getting to the glamorous part of their mission.
They launched the first of two communications satellites that are to be
deployed during the 10th shuttle flight.
The satellite, a Western Union relay station, represents a victory for
NASA because it originally was scheduled to be launched by the shuttle's
European competitor, the Ariane rocket.
Only a few minor problems cropped up on the first day of Challenger's
flight. One of them involved the shuttle's toilet, a source of trouble on many
Reagan ignores Democrats' plea
to withdraw troops from Beirut
WASHINGTON - President Reagan, digging in his heels on Middle East
policy, said in an interview published yesterday he is not "ready to surren-
der" by pulling U.S. Marines out of Lebanon, regardless of the wishes of
House Speaker Thomas O'Neill and other congressional Democrats.
"He may be ready to surrender, but I'm not," Reagan declared when he
was asked by The Wall Street Journal to respond to the Massachusetts
Democrat's call for a timely and orderly withdrawal of the Marines from the
multinational peacekeeping force in Beirut.
The president also said the United States was prepared to retaliate against
the suspected perpetrators of the suicide bombing of Marine headquarters
in Beirut but someone else - presumably the French or Israelis - destroyed
the terrorists' stronghold "before we could get to it."
Reagan said if the United States withdraws now, "That means the end of
Lebanon and...any ability on our part to bring about an overall peace in the

Students battle for more time in late paper game

1"I called up my professor the evening
before the paper was due. I just told
him I was having trouble. He was quite

and thought than an extension of 24
hours would be fair."
Most students agree the strategy

ON THE OTHER side of this
psychological guessing game,
professors often set strict deadlines to
avoid being taken advantage of, said
Prof. Hubert Cohen of the Engineering
"Some professors are paranoid about
students trying to pull something over
on them and fooling them," he said.
"Really, I mean they probably wouldn't
admit it but that is the truth."
Other professors, though, said that
strict deadlines are necessary to
prevent a small number of students
from gaining a big advantage over
others in the class.
"Late papers are totally unaccep-
table," said Constantinos Patrides, a
professor in the English department. "I
grade down a grade a day ... I don't
accept late papers for the simple
reason that the student gives himself an
extension that the other students don't
have. It's not fair when extensions
make his paper better than others.
Cohen said he is aware of the late
paper game students play, but tries to
ignore it as much as possible.
"I trust the students," he said. "Sure,
I've been fooled a couple of times. But
so what, the majority of the students
are honest. When a student comes to me
and tells me he is having trouble on his
paper before deadline, I'll give him an
extension ... I got so many extensions

Conditions which produce the syn-
