children would be taught to read and
write both traditional and 'phonemic
spelling. Citron said he is aware of the
expense that this implies, but feels that
the returns - in terms of time, con-
fidence, careers, and perhaps even
money - outweigh that expense.
BUT PHONEMIC spelling is meeting
a good deal of resistance, primarily
from educators and linguists, Citron
"We are a literate civilization, and
the hundreds of millions of books that
are printed cannot easily be changed,"
says Prof. Roderick Fraser, assistant
director of the University's English
"Educational people don't want that.
They feel a great tradition behind
that," he adds.
ANOTHER problem with phonemic
spelling is that the relationship between
some words would no longer be ap-
parent, says English Prof. Richard
Bailey uses the word "sign" as an
example. The "g" in "sign" serves no
phonetic function, he says, but if "sign"
is spelled without a "g," its connection
with "signify" and "signature" would
Bailey says choice of pronunciation is
the most obvious problem. It would be
very difficult to decide "whose pronun-
ciation becomes standard," he says.
One word that would become even
more controversial if simplified is the
word "beer" Bailey says. The English
do not pronounce the "r" in "beer," and
if an Englishman were simplifying the
spelling of "beer," he would, according
to Bailey, reasonably spell it "beea."
SURPRISINGLY, BEtSS's board of
directors includes college professors,
as well as corporate executives, jour-
nalists, teachers, and librarians.
Spelling simplification, says EMU
President John Porter is "a project
worth intellectual pursuit."
Although he says not all words could
be accepted the way they are pronoun-

determine which words might be adap-
Porter says he does not believe the
country is ready yet for simpler
RollinMarquis, city librarian in
Dearborn, says he believes spelling
reform is needed because "nobody can
spell anymore." The only solution
Marquis says would work is "if some
more phonetic method" for spelling
were to be adopted.
Toe learning Marquis says, is the
principal difficulty with our current
spelling system, and a system based on
pronunciation would be much easier to

Thursday named John DiBiaggio MSU's new chief executive and the
University of Connecticut president said he expects no sweeping ad- ;,
DiBiaggio was the only candidate proposed by the board's search commit

Political leaders honor King
ATLANTA - The political elite joined civil rights leaders and thousands of
ordinary citizens yesterday to honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Sr., the
man who helped make freedom and justice a reality for black Americans.
For three hours they came forward to speak of King - Vice President
George Bush; former President Jimmy Carter; Georgia Gov. Joe Frank
Harris, and black leaders including Jesse Jackson and Andy Young.
In Washington, President Reagan released portions of a letter sent to
"His sense of family and community, his spirit of charity and neigh-
borliness and, above all, his dedication to the ideals of justice and equality
leave a shining legacy for others to follow," said Reagan.
"The achievements of Dr. King and his family will live in the hearts not
only of the American people, but of all those who hunger for freedom and
equality anywhere in the world."
Lebanon requests reparations
NAQOURA, Lebanon - Lebanese negotiators yesterday demanded a
quick and complete withdrawal of Israeli troops from south Lebanon and
payment of $8 billion to $10 billion in war reparations by the Jewish state.
The Lebanese military delegation presented a long list of tough demands'
in the second round of negotiations with Israeli officers at the headquarters
of the United Nations peacekeeping force.
Israel is concerned with the security of its northern border if the troops are,
pulled back. Almost every point the Lebanese raised on the future of south
Lebanon conflicted with Israel's previously stated positions.
Conference sources said Israel rejected the Lebanese declaration and
asked instead for a detailed Lebanese plan on security arrangements'

The Lebanese agreed to continue discussions of the security issue when the
talks resume Monday in this border town, ,according to the sources who

U.S. production remains steady
WASHINGTON - The nation's industrial production remained unchanged
in October as a hoped for increase in automobiles failed to materialize, the
Federal Reserve reported yesterday.
In a separate report, the Commerce Department said business inventories
rose a moderate $3.3 billion, or 0.6 percent, in September.
The Fed also reported that during September, consumers increased their
outstanding installment credit by $4.28 billion, a smaller increase than the
$7.11 billion reported in July and $6 billion'in August.
The reports indicate a slowdown in the rapid economic recovery that was
going on during the first half of the year. The economy grew at an annual in-
Elation-adjusted rate of 10 percent in the first quarter, 7 percent in the second;
but only 2.7 percent in the third, according to preliminary figures.

independents have to say before she
takes command at tonight's regularly
scheduled LSA-SG council meeting.

got to run with me were all of top
quality," Tear said. "We handed out
6,000 fliers, and talked up the elections
at several of the dorm councils. You
