S. Quad

ire leads
University and city officials have several arson
suspects in connection with last week's series of
early-morning fires in South Quad.
Sources close to the investigation said one of the
suspects is a former West Quad resident who was
lieved to be involved in a similiar series of fires
there last year.
THE SUSPECT was reportedly evicted last year
from West Quad for assaulting another resident, and
it is believed that he may be seeking revenge for the
Sources said the same suspect, or someone resem-
bling him, was seen in South Quad several days after
four simultaneous fires kept dorm residents out of the
building for over an hour on Feb. 4. The same suspect
is being investigated in connection with a trash can
fire last Saturday in West Quad's Adams House.
The suspect lived in West Quad's Adams House last
year. When asked if this made him a suspect in either
the West Quad or South Quad fires, Ann Arbor Fire
Marshall Wesley Prater responded: "Certainly we're
aware of it."
"WE TRY TO connect any of these fires that occur
on campus" Prater said.
Officials are investigating another suspect who ap-
parently attended the University last year and last
term, but didn't return this term. That suspect was
reportedly seen in a University building during the
weekend of the South Quad fires.
Still another suspect, the sources said, is a varsity
athlete who lived in South Quad last year and was a
suspect in another series of fires there last April.
DESPITE THESE leads, Ann Arbor Police Detec-
tive Joe Witlowski said the investigation "is in no way
"We're looking for some information," he said, ad-
ding that the police have established an anonymous,
tip line for information about the fires.
Witlowski and University housing security super--
visor Joel Allen urged anyone who might know
something about the fires to call the number 996-3199,
at any time to report information about the fires.
"Without help from the student community it's 99
percent harder," Allen said. "There's people who
know something, but they don't necessarily know that
they know it. These people must come forward."

Happy hour ban
spurs nuxed reactions

As patrons of local bars sipped their
happy hour drinks yesterday, many ex-
pressed mixed reactions over the
statewide ban on two-for-one drink
specials that begins today.
Many said the ban would do little to
curb the number of drunk driving ac-
cidents, but instead would punish
drinkers who watch their limit. Others
claimed the ban would effectively stop
people from getting drunk because they
get two drinks when they only order
DOOLEY'S and Ashley's, the only
campus bars that sold two-for-one
drinks, ended the drink special two
weeks ago.
Matt Phillips, a computer technician
and Dooley's patron, said he resents the
ban because he feels it punishes

everyone when there are only a "few
people who can't hold their liquor who
ruin it for the rest of us."
"That sucks," said LSA senior Brian
Conybeare when he heard that two-for-
one specials would be banned today.
His friend, LSA senior Gerry Adams,
wondered, "What are we supposed to do
in the afternoons now?"
BUT PAULA Shalling, a bartender at
Ashley's, approved of the ban, saying
that as a drink server she's "the one
who gets in trouble," or at least feels
responsible, when clients drive home
Shalling added the ban would reduce
drunk driving because "the harder you
make it to get something the fewer
people will make the effort."
Other patrons said the ban would help

about the ban on two-for-one drink

Second of a series
The ivy-covered Gothic arches of the
University's Law School may evoke visions of
young lawyers in court vehemently defending
charges leveled against their clients.
But for today's young lawyers, that picture
of today's legal profession couldn't be further
from the truth.
The majority of new law school graduates
will find themselves working in large private
legal firms. And many will hold jobs com-
pletely unrelated to the legal training they
have received.
Though applications to law schools are
declining across the country, the number of
people holding law degrees could double from
500,000 to one million by 1990. This prediction
has drawn criticism that the job market for

Id crwechanging

attorneys is already overflooded.
Every year roughly 35,000 new lawyers join
look ahead
the work force and up to one third must settle
for jobs outside of the legal profession, accor-
ding to Lou Rice, a pre-professional counselor
at the Office of Career Planning and
"There are more law school graduates going
into non-legal positions in business and
government than five years ago," said

Colleen Moore, an administrator at the
National Association for Law Placement.
Non-legal jobs in government which attract
lawyers include policy analysis, legislative
drafting, speech writing, and managerial
consulting. Many of these positions are of-
fered in the military.
Lawyers forced to turn to the business
world often opt for employment as accounting
managers or journalists.
The fact that more and more law graduates
are forced to take non-legal positions may not
frighten away potential law students, Rice
said. But it should, he added.
"Some people suggest law school is good
training for anything. I don't believe that," he
said. "I think legal training is good for'prac-
ticing law, not for training a wide range of

Quickly disappearing from the legal world
is the one attorney office. The capital
required to open a private office and the com-
petition for new clients makes it almost im-
possible for new graduates to go into business
for themselves.
As a result, law firms have grown in size.
"A law firm with 50 lawyers was considered
big 10 years ago. Now a law firm with 150
lawyers is considered big," said Nancy
Krieger, placement director at the Univer-
sity's law school.
The law profession is changing scope in
other ways as well

cuts disappoint
student voters

with wire reports
Many students who voted for
President Reagan in the 1984 election
said yesterday they are glad Reagan is
in office but they are not happy with his
proposals to cut education funding.
This is not necessarily a paradox,
said Prof. Gregory Markus, an ISR
researcher. "The majority of -Reagan
supporters did not have coinciding
policies with Reagan," he said.
"THERE IS great weight put on per-
sonality characteristics rather than
ideologies, and Reagan has broad
charismatic appeal," Markus said.
Mark Leachman, president of the
College Republicans, said his reason
for voting for Reagan was that
"Reagan was more optimistic while the
whole mood of Mondale's campaign
was negative."
Reagan's "image of a strong
America is what helped him to be elec-
ted - he's confident," sid Tom Higley,
a Reagan supporter and LSA senior.
BUT HIGLEY said that were it not
for federal grants he would not be able
to afford school.
Leachman did not know Reagan has
proposed to eliminate National Direct
:Student Loans from the federal budget
and that the proposal also includes
making students whose parents earn an
adjusted income of over $32,500

ineligible for a Guaranteed Student
"What they proposed is outrageous.
Education should have a higher priority
and I hope it will get more money than
what is proposed," Leachman said.
LEACHMAN contends that "it would
be dangerous if spending very little
money on education becomes a trend,
but the military build-up is more impor-
tant than education."
Some students expressed concern
that if the federal government cuts
back on financial aid programs the
wealthier students will have unfair ad-
vantages for a college education.
"If the government does not find an
alternative method to subsidize
education then the only people who will
be going to the universities will be the
people who can afford it on their own
and America will be hurting," Higley
REFERRING to the proposed
educational cuts, Reagan supporter
Natali Cracciolo, an LSA junior, said "I
think it makes our internal political
system look like a sham. Everybody is
supposed to have equal opportunities . .
. I can't believe I voted for him - I
sound like a real ding-a-ling."
"Education should be a priority.
That's the only resource America has
- the mindpower of the youth," said

MSA urges
to examine
its format
In response to the unauthorized inser-
ts placed in Consider magazine last
week, the Michigan Student Assembly
last night asked the magazine's editors
to devote a special issue to the value of
But for lack of a quorum, they fell
short of condemning the unauthorized
inserts which appeared last week. The
inserts, entitled "Consider (Con-
sider)," included several essays on
U.S. involvement in Nicaragua.
THE ASSEMBLY also voted to en-
dorse the efforts of the Public Interest
Research Group in Michigan to con-
tinue ,soliciting student donations
through the class registration process.
MSA's resolution calls for an issue in
which the magazine will examine its
own format. Consider editor Jeff Spin-
ner said he would "consider" putting
out such an issue "at some future
Last week LSA senior Andrew Boyd,
who admitted to putting the inserts into
the magazine, said the magazine was
ineffective because it did not present
widely varying viewpoints. He
proposed an issue in which he and Spin-
ner would write opposing pieces on the
value of Consider.
The first resolution, proposed by MSA
member Eric Schnaufer, encouraged
consider to run the special issue
because of the importance of "freedom
