Prof says women can
combine cork, home life

The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, March 7, 1984 - Page 3

"Women are now learning to be com-
:petitive and be comfortable with them-
:selves at the same time," Vivian
:Shapiro, assistant professor of social
work told about 50 women in the
Rackham Assembly Hall yesterday.
Shapiro, who has raised four
daughters while pursuing a career in
:social work, said she believes the two
:worlds of family and work can be suc-
cessfully combined.
women's contributions to society are
finally beginning to occur, Shapiro ad-
ded, and many changes have occurred
in the past century to improve the
situation, such as movements for equal
"The women of today are pioneers;''
Shapiro said. "They are covering new
terrain, aspiring to complex fields of
work, and not necessarily giving up the
idea of the traditional role."
A woman's traditional role - running
the household - does not have to be
abandoned if she wants to be a part of
the work force, Shapiro said.
; THE PROBLEM that women face is
that while industrial areas have been
advanced in technology, there has been

"no modernization in the production of
children," she said.
About half of the women in the work
force today have children who are
younger than six, Shapiro said, and the
fact that "mothers and fathers are not
completely interchangeable" and that
"mothers are still the ones that bear
children" pose difficulties.
Until male and female roles are more
equal, she added, women will still have
to deal with conflicts between work and
SHAPIRO SAID that the resolution of
these conflicts may vary from family to
family, but in today's world women
"aren't being detoured as much" from
getting the education necessary for a
career option.
Many women are also entering non-
traditional fields such as engineering
and law, while others are going back to
school after raising a family, Shapiro
She added that she believes women's
attitudes toward themselves have im-
proved in the past 20 years because
many women today define themselves
by their career goals insted of by their

University officials will travel to
Lansing this morning to tell state
legislators that financial support for
higher education in Michigan lags far
behind other states.
A House committee has asked
university leaders throughout the state
to report on minority enrollment and
teacher preparation, but President
Harold Shapiro said yesterday he hopes
to turn the focus of the discussion
toward "the adequacy of state aid."
THE STATE legislature is con-
sidering next year's budget proposed
by Gov. James Blanchard in January.
The budget would give the University
$15 million more than the $149 million it
received last year, but that increase.
would fall far short of the $40 million in-
crease the University requested last
Blanchard, however, has said that
colleges would lose the 10 percent in-
crease unless they freeze un-
dergraduate, in-state tuition. Colleges
and universities that raise tuition would
receive less aid, depending on the size
of their fee hikes.
State aid comprises half of the
University's revenues - less than most
colleges in the state - so the proposed
freeze would mean only a 5 percent in-
crease in its budget.
SHAPIRO SAID Blanchard's

proposal is only a "talking point" bet-
ween legislators and university
presidents at this time and that it is too
early to tell whether congressmen will
buy the plan.
The state of Michigan lags behind
other states in providing aid to colleges
and universities, Shapiro charged.
While other states have boosted their
appropriations by as much as 19 per-
cent over the last two years, Michigan
has handed its public colleges an in-
crease of only 6 percent, he said.
The University's executive officers
are just beginning to piece together
next year's University budget. But they
say they can already tell .that the
proposed $15 million increase in state
aid won't cover equipment replacement
and maintenance work the University
has neglected during the last five years
because of the financial crisis.
million increase requested by the
University would be allocated to
repairs and equipment purchases, said
Robert Sauve, an assistant to the vice
president for academic affairs.

Engineering that is leaking -nand has

Malicious Intent
-I I

The Michigan Student Assembly
voted last night to give $150 to the
University's Midshipment Battalion af-
ter some questions as to whether it was
a registered student group.
The Battalion, the Navy branch of the
Reserve Officer's Training Corps,
requested money for the March of
Dimes Run-a-thon they are sponsoring
this month.
MSA CAN ONLY fund student
groups, and at first they did not even
consider giving the Battalion money
because they could not find the ROTC
group on the list of registered student
At that time, the assembly also voiced
opposition to ROTC's affiliation with
the military, and discussed the claim
that the ROTC discriminates on the
basis of sexual preference.
The proposal was reintroduced to the
assembly, when it was discovered that
they were a registered group.

Last night, several members of the
University's ROTC's programs atten-
ded the meeting and responded to
MSA's accusations.
"The ROTC does not discriminate
against homosexuals - as far as the
University goes, anyone can join," said
Duane Kuizema, a senior in the
Business School.
Kuizema said that even though they
are members of the ROTC, they still
pay MSA funds and therefore deserve
fair consideration for funding.
"WE PUT ON our uniforms to defend
your rights to say anything you want -
when you spit back at us, it hurts,"
Kuizema said.
"As far as the opinion goes that we're
some sort of scums up on North Cam-
pus and that we should be off of campus
is wrong."
Kuizema added that he believed MSA
was withholding funds because "some
of you don't like ROTC."





200 support sit-in activists

t "I'm really scared about the future of
the planet," said PSN member David

I wasn't able to get arrested today be-
cause I had to work," he said.

for about 30 minutes before marching.

through the Diag, and to the steps of the
East Engineering Building where Prof.
George Haddad's physics laboratory is
THE EFFORTS of the 11 arrested
were again praised on the steps of the
engineering building by PSN members
who spoke to the crowd.
"This is not just 11 people that are

doing this," said one on-looker.
"I think we should get together like
this more often to energize the struggle
against militarism, said Alison
Feighan, an LSA senior and member of
the PSN, amidst cheers of "Hey, hey, ho
ho, the DOD has got to go."
Members of the crowd also chanted
"No, code, no code," voicing their op-
position to the proposed student code of
non-academic conduct which if adop-
ted, could prohibit campus sit-ins.
"If you want to have dissent on cam-
pus, you have to have the right to
dissent," Eric Schnoufer, vice
president for No Code, a group of
students who are opposed to the con-
duct code.
