FOR EXAMPLE, prostrate cancer
which usually develops on older men,
becomes as much or more of a threat
than lung cancer for men if they live
long enough.
The report was based on a 12-year,
ongoing survey of cancer occurrence
and deaths by the government's
National Cancer Institute. The resear-
chers excluded common skin cancers
from their study.
White males and black females born
in 1975 had a 30 percent chance of even-
tually developing cancer. Today white
males have almost a 37 percent chance,
while the risk for black females is less

than 32 percent, the lowest for all men
and women.
BLACK MALES had a 28 percent
chance in 1975 and today have a slightly
more than 35 percent chance, said the
researchers.
White females born in 1985 have a 36
percent chance of developing cancer,
up 2 percent from 1975.
Women are most likely to develop
breast, lung, uterus or colon-rectum
cancers, although the researchers ex-
pect to see a decrease in uterine can-
cers.
Lung, prostate and colon-rectum
cancers are the leading cancers in men.

Ed. cuts anger students

(Continued from Page 1)
Scott Gibson, an LSA senior who voted
for Reagan.
Students who do not like Reagan's
proposals to cut federal funding for
education are comforted by the thought
that Congress will not pass the budget
without making some changes.
"REAGAN IS an adept politician. He
knows Congress won't give him what he
asks for," Leachman said.
Gibson agrees that "what's taking
Vplace is Reagan proposes one thing and1
Congress proposes another."
Presidents often ask for more money
or less money than is needed for
education so that room exists for
negotiation, said Gretchen Morris, co-
chairman of the Reagan campaign on
campus and a senior in LSA.
EVEN IF the federal government

That motion passed easily.
SPINNER and Shareef Mahdavi,
Managing Editor of Consider, then in-
troduced a resolution calling for MSA to
condemn the incidents and the actions
of the people involved.
Mahdavi said Consider's aim is to
stimulate debate on campus, and that
the inserts "compromised our name,
violated our freedom, and harmed our
itegrity."
Schnaufer, disagreed, saying the in-
sert did not compromise their name. He
said it was demeaning to the intelligen-
ce of 'University students to say that
they were unable to distinguish bet-
ween Consider and the insert.
SCHNAUFER said Boyd's freedom
was violated in the removal of the in-
serts. -
The second resolution never came to
a vote because several members had
left the meeting.
A majority of the members of the
assembly must be present in order to
constitute a quorum.
Earlier in the meeting the Assembly
endorsed PIRGIM's bid to extend their
funding contract with the University
and to form a committee to examine
alternative ways of funding the group.

does make. big cuts in financial aid,
Morris said the people who have the
willpower and desire to go to school can
go anywhere.
"The people who don't have the
money will have to be more creative in
finding the funding," Morris said.
Education Secretary William Bennett
Monday suggested that students give
up their cars, stereos and vacations so
that they can cope with the proposed'
federal aid cuts.
A national student group yesterday.
demanded an apology from Bennett.
The secretary seems to be trying to
trivialize an important issue," Sen.
Paul Simon (D-Ill.) said. "What we are
talking about is equal access to higher
education -not stereos, cars and
vacations.
PJRG19Iplain
Barry Horovitz, PIRGIM's local
chairman and Kristen Haas, PIRGIM's
campus coordinator, noted that
historically MSA has backed the group
and that PIRGIM works closely with
MSA on some issues.
One of the two members voting
against the endorsement was LSA
senior Mike Weber. "I don't think
PIRGIM should have a privilege other
organizations are denied." he said. "It
gives them a funding advantage that
does a disservice to other
organizations."
MSA President Scott Page, who will
go before the regents Thursday to en-
dorse PIRGIM, said that the group
should not be penalized because it no
longer draws widespread student sup-
port. PIRGIM is required to show
regularly that it has strong student
support to continue being funded
through student registration, but that
requirement has been waived in recent
year.
Page said the fact that only 11 per-
cent of the students support PIRGIM
was not surprising because "the only
thing 50 percent of the student
population does is attend football
games and sleep through 9 o'clock
classes."

to limit the number of people who do not
intend to get drunk but do because of
the two-for-one specials.
"INSTEAD of obligating yourself for
two (drinks) you can just pay for one,"
said Nik Koslov, who was drinking at
Dooley's
Many bars do not inform their
patrons during happy hour that drinks
are being sold on a two-for-one basis,
said Amy Hennes, a bartender at Good
Time Charley's.
The ban would keep patrons from
feeling obligated tohave the second
drink even though they did not intend to
drink that much, she said.
"If you stick it in front of someone,
they'll drink it," said Steve Gasser, a.
patron at Charley's.
EVEN THOUGH the ban might keep
patrons from getting drunk uninten-
tionally, it would not necessarily end
drunk driving, some said.
Trooper Mell Owens of the Michigan
State Police in Ypsilanti said "those
(bar) owners will find a way to get
Around it."
"IF THEY're going to drink and
drive, they're going to drink and drive
no matter how much the drinks are,"
said Diane Warmington, a bartender at
Rick's American Cafe.
Several bartenders and patrons said
they thought there were more effective
ways to reduce drunk driving.
Phillips said a better idea might be

car pools in which one person in a group
of drinkers stays sober in order to drive
the others home.
BILL HENRY, a patron of Charley's,
suggested changes in the way people
- think about drinking and driving would
get at the root of the problem whereas a
ban would not.
"What needs to be changed around
here is attitudes, not drink prices,"
Henry said.
The responsibility to prevent drunks
from driving rests with the bartender,
said Rich Brown, a bartender at The
Count of Antipasto.
"They have to be able to tell when a
person has had enough and cut them
off."
