The University's Office of Admissions is swamped
by an unexpected increase in the number of applican-
ts for next fall's freshman class.
The deadline is tomorrow for high school seniors to
apply for admissionto the University, and 1,009 more
applications have come into the office than at the
same time last year, according to Cliff Sjogren,
director of admissions.
THE 11 PERCENT increase in applications is a
surprise to admissions officials because the number
of college-age people in the country has been
declining since the 1960's and '70s.
Officials also said an increase seemed unlikely
because the University is still the most expensive

Gary's Guerrillas
enjoy taste of victory

By NEIL CHASE
Long before Walter Mondale con-
ceded defeat in last night's New Ham-
pshire primary, Gary's Guerrillas
gathered around three portable
televisions in a small State Street office

to watch election reports and celebrate.
The Guerrillas, a group of University
students who spent four days over
spring break campaigning for Gary

public institution in the country.
According to admissions officials, most of the in-
crease is from out-of-state applications - 900 more
than last year.
The percentage of out-of-state students, (ap-
proximately 30 percent) will not increase just
because there are more applications, Sjogren said.
HE ADDED that the number of non-Michigan
resident students is controlled carefully through the
admissions procedure.
The University has received 108 more applications
from in-state students so far this year. The Univer-
sity's target for freshman enrollment is ap-
proximately 4,100 students, Sjorgren said.
Sjogren attributes the high number of potential
students to the University's fine academic

LSA Freshman Joshua Berg had to
carrla-flask of blackbhtry bran'dy with
him to class yesterday to brave the un-
welcome, blowing snow and frigid tem-
peratures.
Other students hid their faces behind
tightly-wrapped scarves and piled on
layers of clothes before venturing into
the white blankets covering campus.
AND although the high winds and
snowdrifts forced public schools in Ann
Arbor, Detroit and cities throughout
Michigan to close thier doors, Univer-
sity President Harold Shapiro said he
"never even considered" giving
students a day off.
The snow that started Monday night
accumulated to five-and-a-half inches
by late last night, according to Chuck
DeFever at the National Weather Ser-
vice in Ann Arbor.
The snow and high winds that
reached 40 miles an hour yesterday
should end today but DeFever said
temperatures will hover near the 20-
degree mark as they did yesterday.
BUT BY the end of the week, studen-
ts should be able to enjoy spring-like

temperatures, he added.
Aside from buses running a little
behind schedule yesterday and a few
cancelled activities, for the most part
University life went uninterrupted by
the storm.
Flights at Detroit Metro Airport were
also back on schedule yesterday after
many delays when the storm hit Mon-
day night.
OTHER parts of the country were hit
much harder by the blizzard. In Buf-
falo, N.Y. nearly 18 inches of snow were
blown into six foot drifts in some places
leaving streets blocked by abandoned
cars and trucks.
By yesterday afternoon the death toll
from the storm reached 22. The most
common cause of the victims' deaths
were heart attacks they suffered while
shovelling snow.
Icy road conditions also claimed the
lives of nine people, three of whom were
Michigan residents.

States like this," said Nolan Duke at the

reputation.
"PEOPLE ARE realizing that the University is
really good school," Sjogren said. "And with the
economy turning around, it's more affordable."
Even the 9.5 percent tuition hike this academic
year has not affected the number of students trying to
get in.
"Peer institutions have been going up in cost, too,"
Sjogren said. "The University is now more in par
with the costs of other schools, even though it is still
the most expensive public school."
According to Sjogren, 'the University is "riding a
wave of popularity now," due to positive press, such
as a national study which recently rated the Univer-
sity third overall for undergraduate colleges.

The Supreme Court, dealing a major
setback to women's rights groups,
ruled yesterday that the federal gover-
nment may not cut off all aid to a
college because of illegal sex
discrimination in a particular program.
By a 6-3 vote, the court handed the
Reagan administration a legal victory
and dealt women's rights groups what
they described as a major defeat.
AP Photo .THE COURT decision gave a narrow
interpretation to what is known as Title
IX of a 1972 federal law banning sex

federal aid.
The justices said the law mandates
that if sex discrimination exists in a

for the college as a whole.
