"Do you feel personally threatened by the recent South Quad fires?"
Respondents are South Quad residents.
IN BRIEF t
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Lisa Mackey, LSA freshman:
"I don't feel threatened, but
it's a big hassle. It's not fair to
everyone. Maybe I should be
Dave Dever, LSA freshman:
"Yes, I do. It's scary to wake
up to smoke. We didn't know
what to expect. Someone
threatened everyone's lives.
It's pretty scary. If it hap-
pened again someone could
get hurt more easily."
Robert Regan, LSA fresh-
man: "I thought they were
just drills at the time. When I
found out they were real, I
wanted them to catch the per-
son who set them. Next time it
happens, people won't be so
calm; it could turn into
Philip Weiss, LSA freshman:
"No. We have a pretty good
alarm system. We can get out-
side in about ten seconds."
Yosuf Hameed, LSA
sophomore: "I don't feel
threatened. There's so many
fire alarms, it gets ridiculous.
This year isn't as bad as last
year because they have more
serious penalties. Usually the
fire departmentis pretty fast
so I don't feel in danger."
Todd Schulte, Engineering
sophomore: "Not really. If I
can't get out of my room, I've
got a tree outside my win-
Cathy Dowling, LSA fresh-
man: "Yes, I do. But I didn't
take it that seriously. Because
they're in trash cans, they'll
go out. I thought of it more as
a viscious prank. If it hap-
pened again, I'd take it more
Larry Kolasa, LSA junior:
"Yes, I do. I can't imagine
why someone would set the
fires. That's a pretty direct
threat to my well being. That
kind of malice directed towar-
ds everyone is pretty stupid."
Chevetta Gilmore, LSA
freshman: I felt threatened
the night it happened, scared
that somebody had actually
set them. Right now it doesn't
bother me that much."
Brian Pearlston, LSA fresh-
man: "I didn't feel threatened
at first, but when we came
down and saw the smoke, I got
a little worried. I don't think
it's a real threat, but it's not to
be taken lightly."

Note reveals Nixon P.O.W. deal
NEW YORK-An autograph dealer has paid $2,500 for a thank-you not
from Richard Nixon that was purportedly written after he met secretly with
a Viet Cong leader in 1964 to negotiate the release of five American
Nixon's note was addressed to Hollis Kimmons, who told the dealer he was
part of Nixon's Army escort on the mission. Kimmons said he signed an
agreement not to say anything about Nixon's role for 20 years, the dealer
"It is unquestionably Richard Nixon's handwriting," Gerard Stdolskiof
Paul Richards Autographs in Templeton, Mass., said in a telephone inter-
view. "And Sgt. Kimmons was in the right place at the right time."
One account of the mission, publishd in an autograph collectors'
periodical, said Nixon met with a Viet Cong leader, then traded a case of
gold bars for five U.S. prisoners in Cambodia.
The note, scrawled on a 3-by-5-inch white paper, reads: "To Hollis Kim-
mons, with appreciation for his protection on my helicopter ride in Vietnam,
from Richard Nixon." It is undated.
The story could not be independently verified, although Nixon was in
Southeast Asia at the time. Kimmons could not be reached yesterday.
Agents seize plane in drug raid
MIAMI-Federal agents seized the largest cargo plane ever taken in a
drug investigation yesterday but failed in their scheme to trap smugglers
who planted more than a ton of cocaine aboard the jumbo jet.
Customs officers found 2,478 pounds of cocaine in a flower shipment
aboard the $119 million Avianca Airlines Boeing 747 Wednesday after it
arrived on a flight from Bogata, Colombia.
The shipment of flowers was bound for Montreal and agents replaced the
cocaine with white powder and allowed the shipment to continue as
scheduled on another flight.
The flowers arrived in Canada Thursday as the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police watched. But a spokesman for the Vice President's Task Group in
Miami said there apparently was no evidence the drugs were intended for
the people who picked up the flowers and no arrests were made.
New import to hit car market
DETROIT - While U.S. carmakers fret about imports from Japan, a little
car from another shore is about to hit U.S. showrooms boasting a base price
of $3,990 - more than $1,000 less than the cheapest cars now sold in
It's called the Yugo - as in Yugoslavia - and New York auto importer
Malcolm Bricklin said yesterday that the 'car will be available in June from
Boston to Baltimore with plans for nationwide distribution of 70,000 cars in
the first year.
Bricklin has a few roadblocks ahead. The car has yet to be certified for
America's pollution and safety laws and his dealer network still is being set
Mechanically, the Yugo and its Fiat-designed engine date to about 1970,
and the competition from up-to-date Japanese cars will heat up if Japan lifts
its U.S. import quotas this spring.
But Bricklin said the price is for real and that will sell the Yugo, although
he added, "If it's not a good car, we're going to have credibility problems."
Polish -officials arrest activists
WARSAW, Poland - Authorities brought charges against seven Solidarity
activists captured in a police raid on a meeting in Gdansk, and summoned
Lech Walesa for questioning on the same charge - inciting public unrest.
Three of the seven charged were placed under arrest. Walesa who also at-
tended the meeting Wednesday but was released immediately, accused
Poland's communist authorities of "hatred, repression and...violation of
The Solidarity leaders had met to plan a 15-minute nationwide strike on
Feb. 28 protesting government plans to raise food prices. Walesa founded the
now-outlawed union in Gdansk during the labor unrest of 1980, also set off by
price increases, and won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work.
After getting the summons, Walesa issued a joint statement with Jacek
Kuron, founder of the workers' rights group KOR, condemning the raid and
the prosecutor's decision to place three of the men under arrest. KOR ad-
vised Solidarity in the union's formative period, and then disbanded.
Panel recormmends Minnesota
judge's removal for cheating
ST. PAUL, Minn.-Minnesota Supreme Court Justice John Todd should be
removed from office because he cheated on a bar examination by using
reference books, a special three-judge panel recommended yesterday.
Todd, 57, would be the first membr of the state's Supreme Court to be
removed from office if the state Court of Appeals accepts the panel's
Todd violated judicial canons and is "guilty of conduct prejudicial to the
administration of justice or conduct unbecoming a judicial officer...," the
The three-judge panel was appointed last November by the Court of Ap-
peals after the court, in a 4-1 decision, rejected an agreement in which Todd
agreed to accept public censure for using reference books during a.
multistate bar examination in July 1983, but denied he intended to cheat or
take unfair advantage of other people by using the books.

Chris Vargas, a city resident, also
complained about his car being towed.
"I don't know if I'm upset enough to ac-
tuallyfight it, but I'm close. It's tem-
pting," Vargas said.
VARGAS criticized the city's incon-
sistency in declaring the snow
emergency: "It's been snowing all win-
ter and nothing has been done. Then
they decide arbitrarily to make it a
John Robbins, director of the Ann Ar-
bor Transportation Department, said
the snow emergency was necessary to
clear the streets of the larger-than-
"We've had 21 inches in January,
when we usually have about a foot. And
we haven't had the so called January
thaw," he said.
ROBBINS said the procedure was
necessary to clear streets in case of
emergencies. But he said it will be lif-
ted tonight at 7 p.m.
The old St. Joseph hospital area - in-
cluding East Ingalls, East Kingsley,
Catherine and Ann Streets - has been
scheduled for snow removal today.
The city's snow emergency
procedures cost the city about $1,000 an
hour, Robbins said. He added that the
snow removal fines basically recover
The city's transportation department
has received a lot of questions and
complaints about the snow removal
"At least every other call is a com-
plaint. They've been calling all day,"
said Denise Burch, a city accounting
Robbins said that the Department of
Transportation was not responsible for
enacting the procedure. He said it was
approved by the city council in 1979 in
response to the 1978 snow storm. He ad-
ded that he doesn't have the authority
to change the procedure.
Small business offers big jobs.
2nd BIG YEAR

"Today, the majority still goes into
big business, but there is some
significant number that go into small
and" medium size businesses. It's
become a viable consideration."
Between 1980 and 1982, small firms
created 2.65 million new jobs - many of
which were entry-level positions ap-
propriate for business school
graduates, he said.
SINCE SMALL businesses usually
don't recruit on campus, students must
seek out jobs in this sector through per-
sonal contact and research.
One of the keys to getting a job in a
small firm - or a large firm - is in-
creasing one's marketability through
extra-curricular experience, Carroll
"Any internship program is a definite
plus," she said. "An interviewer will
usually want to know why you are in-
terested in a given occupation," she
"IF YOU tell him you've had ex-
perience with it in a summer or part-
time job or an internship the inter-
viewee will know you've researched
what the occupation involves."
"This improves your credibility as a

One group of business school students
has done just that. The University Con-
sulting Group (UCG), a profit-making
consulting firm for small businesses in
the metropolitan Detroit area, was
established this past summer by two
MBA students. The students say the
hands-on experience they have received
already has proved valuable in their job
"UCG IS giving us a chance to
manage our own company-the day to
day operation-and come face to face
with clients," said Ken Nachbar, a fir-
st-year MBA student and current
president of the group.
"Large corporations are looking for
people who can take initiative and get
things done," said Colin Ahluwalia, a
second-year MBA student who helped
found the group. "Having worked in
organizations like UCG shows them
that you are disciplined and
Ahluwalia said he has received
numerous job offers from Fortune 500
companies, including investment
banks, consulting groups, and con-
sumer good firms.
Nachbar, has another year to
finish before he earns his MBA, but
already has been approached by two
companies about internships.
