If you're a student staying in a double
room in a traditional resident hall, ex-
pect to pay about $130 more for your
room next year.
The University regents approved a 5
percent rate hike yesterday, which will
boost housing bills an extra $105 to $158
for students in West Quad, Markley,
and other traditonal dorms.
RATES increased 5.8 percent for non-
traditional housing, which includes
Fletcher Hall, Baits and Oxford, and 3
percent for married student housing.
Regent Deane Baker (D-Ann Arbor)
voted for the hike, but said the increase
for non-traditional halls was too high
given their 15 percent vacancy rate.
Housing director Robert Hughes said
the increase was needed to cover
operating costs and improvements in
Hughes also said the division hopes to
cut down the vacancy rate in the dorms
and attract more students by conver-
ting a number of double rooms into
HENRY Johnson, vice president for
student services, said the University
was keeping the rate increase for

Hughes said the difference in rate in-

are on completely separate budgets.

Later in the meeting, the regents got
some bad news about efforts to recruit
black students on campus. According to
a report by the Office of Affirmative
Action, black enrollment dropped from
5.2 percent in 1982, to 4.9 percent last

with us and Gemayel," Jumblatt said in
the telephone interview from Damascus
Syria, which was broadcast by In-
dependent Television News in London.
"Gemayel is to be judged for crimes
against the Lebanese people . . there is
no way to have a deal with Gemayel."
In Tel Aviv, Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir said abrogation of the
May 17 Israel-Lebanon accord would
jeopardize any future peace agreemen-

institution or president under pressure
from a hostile and most extreme state it
will be a catastrophe, first for the
sovereignty and independence of
Lebanon and secondly for the chances
of peace in the region," he said in a
Gemayel dispatched Foregin
Minister Elie Salem to the Saudi capital
of Riyadh, where Salem met im-
mediately with Foreign Minister Prin-
ce Saud al-Faisal. Beirut radio stations
said Salem would plead with Saudi King
Fahd's government to intercede with
Arab diplomatic sources in Riyadh
said Gemayel was seeking assurances
that Syria would honor the Saudi plan,
which also calls for an eventual Syrian
withdrawal from Lebanon. The plan
also was said to seek to end the fighting
in Lebanon and to install a U.N. force in
place of the American, Italian and
French peacekeeping troops in Beirut.
Moslem rebels maintained intense
pressure on Gemayel by tightening
their hold on a swath of coastline bet-
ween Beirut and the Damour River, 5
miles south of the U.S. Marine base at
Beirut International Airport.
The Lebanese army, demoralized
and down to half of its strength of two
weeks ago, lost the territory Tuesday
and Wednesday. Remnants of the Four-
th Brigade remained trapped between
Damour and Israeli lines, 24 miles,
south of Beirut.
Radio reports said rebels were
massing for an attack on government
troops holding Souk El Gharb, the ar-
my's last remaining stronghold,
located on a southeast mountain ridge
overlooking the presidential palace, the
Ministry of Defense and the U.S. am-
bassador's residence in the Beirut
"IF SOME political breakthrough is
not arrived at, they will send out
another message," said a Western
source close to the. conflict, "and they
will probably attack Souk El Gharb."
The army, aided by U.S. naval bom-
bardments, held the village against in-
tense rebel assaults last September.
Most of the remaining Lebanese ar-
my troops still under Gemayel's com-
mand were deployed in Christian east
Beirut along a line confronting the
Shiite Moslem rebels who took control
of the western half of the city 10 days
Total minority enrollment increased
from 10.3 percent to 10.5 percent, most
of the increase being Asian students.
While the University's black
enrollment has dropped, black
enrollment on the Dearborn campus
rose from 396 to 421 students, and from
497 to 512 in Flint.

'The University's regents will decide
today whether to support a lawsuit
challenging the constitutionality of a
law linking federal financial aid to
registration for the draft.
The Minnesota Civil Liberties Union
distributed a brief to the regents at the
end of January, and asked them to file a
friend of the court brief backing the
lawsuit by the first week in March.
THE MINNESOTA brief which will
go before the U.S. Supreme Court, says
the Solomon Amendment discriminates.

violates the Fifth Amendment
prohibiting self-incrimination; and im-
poses punishment without the benefit of
University officials have criticized
the law for forcing the University into a
policing role and causing unnesessary
paperwork for the already overworked
financial aid office.
The regents had discussed the law in
December and January, but decided to
delay taking a stand on its con-
stitutionality until they had a chance to
review the Minnesota brief.
The board is also expected to approve
the merger of LSA's Department of
Computer and Communications Scien-
ces with the Department of Electrical
and Computer Engineering. The
merger, which will place all University
computer instruction in the College of
Engineering, is meant to eliminate
If approved, the merger will take ef-
feet July 1. The new Department of
Electrical Engineering and Computer
Engineering will temporarily be
located in the East Engineering
building before moving to North Cam-

E -Systems continues
the tradition of
the world's great problem solvers.
Guglielmo Marconi was
able to see communications rev-
olutionized by his development
of the first successful system of
radio telegraphy-the wireless.
His first experimental transmis-
sions were no more than a few
feet. But, within a quarter of a
century, he had advanced his
system to the point that a radio
message sent from England
could be received in Australia.
E-Systems scientists and
engineers continue to expand
the technology he began. Today,
designed and developed by
E-Systems engineers is used
extensively around the world for
line-of-sight or satellite communi-
cations, digital communications
and applications requiring micro-
tactical radios and microminia-
ture HF VHF and UHF equipment.
In addition to communica-
tions, E-Systems engineers are
solving many of the world's
toughest problems in antennas,
data acquisition, processing,
storage and retrieval systems
and other systems applications for
intelligence and reconnaissance.
Often, the developed systems
are the first-of-a-kind.

reer opportunities with E-Systems
