Students find

snags in campus interviews

Clad in three-piece suits and black pumps,
students line the lobbies of campus placement
offices, waiting for them' turn to talk to
recruiters who have come from miles just to in-
terview them.
On-campus interviewing has become an in-
tegral part of the University, helping students
to break through company red tape and
allowing them more access to company
But even with that convenience, many
students see definite disadvantages to the
preliminary interviewing system.
MANY OF THE recruiters, according to
business school senior Steve Simmons, "equate
conformity with good performance. . . I don't
think they encourage individuality or value a
creative mind."
After an interview for a sales position, Sim-
mons said he received a feedback form that

read, "Steve Simmons appears to be very in-
dependent. However, he may want to take a
more conservative approach. Try playing the
interview game a little more."
Playing the game can be ridiculous at times,
Simmons said, but added that he is not ready to
"hang up my suit and say this isn't for me.
There are a lot of negative aspects but that's
true of any job situation."
MOST STUDENTS are given a half hour with
recruiters and asked routine questions, a
situation some feel eliminates the chance for a
more personal interview.
"It's unfair because it doesn't give the inter-
viewer an inside glimpse of what you're like,"
said Wesley King, business school senior.
Another problem students face with on-
campus interviewing is simply the amount of
time it takes away from studying and
"STUDENTS have mixed emotions and

the way of academics because of planned
visits," said Engineering Prof. John Clark.
"Students often come to me and say they'll be
missing class."
In order to interview "diligently," a student
should plan on spending at least two to six
hours per week for interviews and reading
company literature, according to Donald
Peterson, director of the engineering school's
placement office.
THAT AMOUNT of time inevitably cuts into
study time, and is especially difficult for
students with an extreme work load, he said.
"Students compolain, but they do what they
have to - it's never been an issue," Peterson
"Students heave a sigh of relief when the
process comes to an end, so they don't have to
spend so much time on it," said Leah Atwater,
director of student services for the chem-
istry department.

assistant director of Career Planning and

think differently.

Bo s boys to
battle Bucks


Special to the Daily
COLUMBUS-When they clash, it
will be for all the marbles. Today (12:10
p.m., CBS-TV), Michigan and Ohio
State lay it all on the line. A capacity
crowd in Ohio Stadium and a national
television audience will be treated to a
"We just have to put a great perfor-
mance together, one where everybody
just sells out and plays brilliantly, and
we can win this game,'' said Michigan
coach Bo Schembechler on Monday.
ANYTHING short of brilliance and
Bo's boys may be in line for an em-
barrassing defeat.
The 1984 Buckeyes, behind a potent
offense, have built a record of 8-2, 6-2 in
the Big Ten. A win over the Wolverines
(6-4, 5-3) puts Ohio State in its first Rose
Bowl in five years.
For Michigan to have a chance,
Buckeye tailback Keith Byars must be
contained. Byars leads the nation with
1,568 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns.
The junior averages 5.4 yards per rush,
and is also second on the team with 34
receptions for 422 yards (a 12.4 average
per grab).
HOWEVER, Schembechler must be!
cautious. "I'd say Ohio State is not a
pure running team. They're a run-pass
team," said Schembechler.
Mike Tomczak is a three-year starter
at quarterback and has two dangerous
receivers from which to choose. Junior
flanker Mike Lanese leads OSU with 35

catches for 541 yeards, 15.5 yards per
reception. Freshman split end Cris Ca
ter has caught seven touchdown pa- _s
and has averagedX14.7 yards on Y s 30
season receptions.
Tomczak's protection and Byars'
gaping holes come from the strongest
offensive line in the conference.
"They're all good. They're all seniors,
some of them fifth-year (seniors) and
they're all, about 6-6, 265-270 pounds,"
observed Schembechler.
DEFENSIVELY, Ohio State is not
quite as prolific. Schembechler said that
Michigan's best way to defense the
Buckeye attack, is to keep Byars and
company off the field. A key for the
Wolverines then, is maintaining a ball
control offense.
Chris Zurbrugg will start his fourth
game at quarterback for the
Wolverines. On the season, Zurbrugg
has completed 55 percent of his passes
for 445 yards, with five scores and five
interceptions. It is Zurbrugg's ability to
execute the quarterback option that
could damage the Buckeyes.
Ohio State's defensive backfield star-
ts three first-year players, including
two freshmen at the cornerbacks. But
Schembechler noted that, after a full
season of competition, the backfield is
playing like a group of veterans.
THE BUCKEYE defensive front line
and linebacking are typically strong.
Tackles Dave Crecelius and Dave
Morrill and middle guard Anthony
Guiliani are all seniors.

Baby Fae dead: heart
transplant not bla-med

LOMA LINDA, Calif. (AP)-Baby
Fae, who made medical history and
generated ethical questions as she
fought for life for three weeks with the
heart of a baboon beating in her chest,
died yesterday after her kidneys began
to fail. She was barely a month old.
Leonard Baily, chief surgeon at
r Loma Linda University Medical Cen-
ter, where the baby died at 9 p.m. Thur-
sday said that while the exact cause of
e death had not been determined, he did
not believe the baboon heart was at
d fault.
s HE SAID the baby lost "cardio fun-
- ction in the last two hours of her
existence-not from a rejection but
from a culmination of events surroun-
o ding rejection."
f "It's probably a combination of
things," Bailey said, noting
d cyclosporin, the anti-rejection drug
0 used to suppress the baby's immune
system, "has been touted as a drug that
Scan kill kidneys. That isn't entirely
. correct, of course. There are a host of
other things."

A preliminary autopsy was perfor-
med with the parents' encouragement,
he said.
"I'VE SEEN the heart. The heart
muscle is inflamed, which confirms the
rejection," Bailey said. "She clearly
had a rejection episode.... Hers was no
more than moderately a problem.
The 5-pound infant, born with a
lethally deformed heart, outlived by
more than two weeks any of the four
adults whose hearts had been replaced
with animal hearts. She had lived
longer with the transplanted heart than
she had with her own.
"Baby Fae has opened new vistas for
all children, including the as-yet unborn
infants with similar lethal heart
His voice quavering with emotion,
Bailey told reporters: "The Baby Faes
and their parents are the real pioneers
in this quest to enrich our quality of life.
Today we grieve the loss of this
patient's life...her unique place in our
memories will derive from what she
and her parentshave done togive rise
to a ray of hope for the babies to come."

1963 pinup calendars
to sell again in 1985

CHICAGO (AP)-For 22 years,
Jack Chia has been trying to unload
thousands of "Girl a Week & Joke a
Day" calendars that he couldn't sell
when they were new. No'w time is
back on his side-the days and dates
on the 1963 calendar match those of
He laminated the pictures of his
pinup beauties on an array of
household items. He tried peddling
the photos to a nudist camp. He tried
selling the jokes to fortune cookie
makers. No sale.
STILL, CHIA said he expects 1985 to
be the year he finally finds a market
the 150,000 calendars he has left.
"People like the calendarsbecause
they think they're arty, they leave

more to the imagination" than today's
pinup pictures, he said. "Also, this is
sort of a nostalgia appeal....These are
part of history."
Chia said he came up with the idea
for the calendars in 1962, when pinup
calendars were in their prime. He
said he created the Good-Time
Publishing Co. as a vehicle for his
brainstorm and bought the rights to
photographs of Sophia Loren, Brigitte
Bardot and other beauties, posing in
the nude or in scanty outfits.
After spending about $50,000, Chia
slapped a $1 price tag on the calendars
and waited for success. But because
of delays by the distributor, the
calendars didn't hit newsstands until
January 1963.

Peanut nut

Digest begins with the headline "Give a gift you grow" and
shows the Christmas tins sitting on a bed of soybeans. Stut-
tman got the idea from candy-coated peanuts. Soybeans are
healthier - "the light version of peanuts," he said in a
telephone interview. He said he hopes this year to double
last Christmas's sales of 3,000 tins. Stuttman's Inari
Trading Co. is one of 10 companies which produce soybeans
for use as snacks and nut substitutes, said Bill Shurtleff of
the Soyfoods Center in Lafayette, Calif. However, Shurtliff
said he believes Inari is the only company offering confec-
tion-coated soybeans.
