train kills
man near
North,
Campus
From staff reports
A 27-year-old man was killed last
night when he stepped into the path of
an Chicago-bound Amtrak train as it
passed the University's North Campus.
Norbert Postill, of Trenton, was
walking along the tracks with a friend
when he "apparently bent over to put a
coin on the rail," according to Amtrak
spokesperson Sue Martin.
THE TWO were walking along the
two paiallel tracks which follow the
Huron River below the University's.
Mitchell Field on Fuller Road.
"They thought the train was on the
same track they were on," Martin said.
"The engineer apparently did see the
man, blew the horn, and slowed' the
train," she said, but "it was impossible
to stop the train in time."

Some forget finances
when finding a sorority

By SUE BARTO
They brush their hair, iron their- blouses and beat their
brains for conversation starters. But of the 1,100 women who
will rush sororities this fall, few pay heed to the high cost of
joining the Greek circles.
Though the average cost for participating in a sorority's
social functions for one year-$495-is printed ina booklet
distributed to all rushees, few women take the time to tally
up all the expenses for four years.
"WITH THE HUSTLE and bustle of meeting people,
they're not thinking about the possible financial and prac-
tical problems," said Diana Faulk, a junior in nursing and
resident advisor in Mary Markley dormitory.
Instead, Faulk said the women who approach her have
questions like, " 'Are you a no one if you don't rush a
sorority?' They really want to know if it's the thing to do,"
she said.
Faulk added that one resident worried she would not make
a good impression on sorority leaders if she inquired about
membership costs.
THE FEES start adding up even before a rushee picks a
sorority. In order to pdrticipate in rush, a student must pay a
$10 non-refundable fee that covers mailings and a rush
booklet.
Living expenses and social dues vary from house to house
and usually aren't publicized until after a rushee has
narrowed down her choices to two sororities. A registered
rushee, however, can check the fees at any time filed at the
Panhellenic Association office.
The cost of room and board runs about $2,714 a year, a
year's social dues for parties, formal dances and other ac-

tivities range anywhere from $150 to $500, and in most houses
there are "pledge" fees and other charges in order to become
initiated.
Sara Theit, a sophomore who is rushing this fall; said she
hadn't read the financial information in her rush booklet.
She guessed the first year would cost her about $100 or $200.
"Anything more than $400 or $500 is a lot, but I would pay it
because I can afford it," she added.
JANESE ANDERSON, a member of Kappa Alpha Theta,
echoed Theit.
"I don't think I (joined) because I thought I was overly
rich, but that was where I wanted to put my money. You get
a lot out of it," Anderson said.
Although she admitted the expenses of staying in her house
have traditionally fallen "in the higher range," she said she
has no qualms about belonging to a group some people cannot
afford to join.
"IF SHE CAN'T afford it, I'd be surprised if (the house)
would even interest.her," Anderson said. As the sorority's
rush chairperson, she said the house does not post its dues
during rush.
"We didn't, not because we don't want to, we've just never done
it," Anderson said.
For those women with limited budgets, there are few alter-
natives. Unlike fraternities, which boast a broader range of
dues, most sororites fix their costs around the average.
SORORITIES OFFER scholarships and grants, but none
are available to pledges or women considering rushing. The
money is only available "once they're in the house and there
is more of a commitment of both sides," Seiler said.

Soviets
may run
low on
energy
in 1990's

WASHINGTON (AP)-The Soviet
Union-the world's largest oil
producer-is approaching an energy
crisis sure to strain a major foundation
of its political, economic and military
power, according to a study released
yesterday.
And while its vast oil, natural gas and
coal reserves will enable it to remain a
net energy exporter well into the 1990s,
the Soviet Union cannot continue to
maintain the "growth machine" its on-
ce-cheap energy fueled without major
sacrifices, said the study written by Ed
Hewett of the Brookings Institution, a
Washington-based research center.
BUT HEWETT also dismissed the

notion, recounted as late as 1982 by
Defense Secretary Weinberger, that the
Soviet Union is running out of energy
and, in Weinberger's words, might
"move down through Iran, Iraq and
Afghanistan and try to seize the oil
fields" of the Middle East.
With 40 percent of the world's proven
and probably oil and natural gas reser-
ves, the Soviet Union likely will never
need the Middle East as an evergy
source, Hewett said.
"Oil output will probably stagnate in
the Soviet Union, but energy output will
not," Hewett wrote in his 222-page
study, "energy Economics and Foreign
Policy in the Soviet Union."

ACCORDING TO July 1984 CIA
figures, the Soviet Union's crude oil
production in 1983 was a record-high
11.95 million barrels per day, compared
with 8.68 million barrels by the United
States and 4.87 million barrels by Saudi
Arabia.
Using only three-fourths of their
production themselves, the Soviets
have traditionally relied on oil as a
major foreign policy tool. In exchange
for their loyalty to Moscow, the East
European allies are getting two-thrids
to three-fourths of -their oil from the
Soviet Union at subsidized prices
estimated to have cost the Soviet

New stores flourish
as students return

By GINA PUNCH
The change from summer to fall
brings a welcome increase in business
for established Ann Arbor merchants,
but for those new merchants who
opened over the summer it is the time
when they learn whether their store will
be a success.
This year many new stores seem to
passing that test.

"AS SOON as the students came in we
did great," said "Cousin Larry,"
manager of the new Barry's Bagel
Place store on State Street. "All we
needed was people.
Cousin Larry, the manager who
describes himself as "head schlepp" at
Barry's, spent time earlier this month
on the front step of his store giving out
