Evans expects the best from his students

(Continued from Page 1)
students," says Eunice Royster, direc-
tor of CSP. But Evans emphasizes that
he is unconcerned with color when it
comes to helping students.
"What's good for a minority student
is good for any student," Evans says,
though he admits that the two groups
are treated differently because "it is
difficult for one to get away from his
color."
"I DON'T think we should be doing
anything that is good only for minority
students," he says. Because the
University makes a practice of giving
minority students special attention,
they aren't doing as well as they might,
he adds.
Minority students need to know the
University holds the same expectations
of them as other students.
"Our expectations of them are very
confused. Their expectations of them-
selves are very confused," he says.
"WHEN THEY are recruited, we tell
them that 'whatever is needed to help
you get through, we'll do it.' But we are
not the ones who do most of what it
takes to get a student through. The
student does most of that," he says.
"And the message is not there."

Shawn Abernathy, a senior chemistry
major who works as a research
assistant under Evans, says Evans
provides students with guidance in
solving problems, but refuses to give
any answers.
"HE GIVES me a little help and from
there on he tells me to think about it ...
He wants to see me think," he says.
"His is not the kind of class you can
sit in and do nothing," Royster says.
"He's a scholar. He expects scholarly
work from students."
And Evans' high expectations are not
lost on his children. His oldest son,
William, is an honors student at the
California Institute of Technology. His
twins, Jesse and Carole, are high school
seniors in the process of choosing
colleges. Carole will probably pick
Spelman College, her mother's alma
mater.
Evans says his interests are not so
much in the smart students as those
who show potential of succeeding
academically. His Urban Scholars
Program is a case in point.
THE PROGRAM'S intent, Evans
says, is "to get the best, not necessarily
out of the best, but from a student who
said he or she wanted to be at the

forefront of a given field."
Evans, who wears a Summa Cum
Laude tie pin from Morehouse College
in Atlanta where he graduted in 1963,
says the program prepares 15 to 20 high
school students to pursue research in
particular scientific fields.
"Our intent is to develop talent," he
says, adding that students are en-
couraged to enter their projects in
science fairs and the top notch science
contest sponsored by Westinghouse
Corporation. And they often win.
BUT EVANS says his work for the
Comprehensive Studies Program is not
as rewarding as the Urban Scholars
Program. He is fighting to get
professors - not hired tutors - to work
in the CSP program to help bring below
average students up to academic stan-
dards.
Because of the "weak faculty in-
volvement," Evans says he doesn't
think the program is successful The
University administration, he says, is

against having faculty devote time to
CSP or other minority recruitment and
retention programs.
Evans says a commitment by the
University administration to motivate
the scholarly potential in minority
students is all that is needed here.
"If little 'backward schools' can ad-
mit black students . . . and turn out
people like (Martin Luther) King then
shouldn't we be doing at least as well?"

Mc gan House to
consider seat belt bill

(Continued from Page 1)
ts in 1982, she said. For the same year,
national figures were 46,000 deaths and
1.7 million injuries.
Studies done by both the National
Safety Council (NSC) and the National
Highways Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration (NHTSA) have projected
that up to 15,000 lives could be saved if
all passenger car occupants wore seat
belts.
According to Fred Ranck of NSC,
wearing a restraint device could have
an even "greater effect" on the num-
ber of accident-related injuries. The
NSC projects a 40 percent drop in
disabling injuries when seat belts are in
use, while NHTSA estimates range
between 50 and 60 percent.
THREE STATES have already
passed mandatory seat belt laws. New
York's law went into effect Jan. 1 of this
year. New Jersey and Illinois will
require seat belt use within five mon-
ths. If state Rep. David Mollister's (D-
Lansing) bill is passed, Michigan will
become the fourth state in the country
to have a mandatory seat belt law.
But across the border in Canada,
such laws have been in effect for a
number of years. The nearby province
of Ontario became the first in North
America to enact such a law when it
unanimously passed a similar bill in
November 1975. According to Douglas
Cowan, a senior information officer
with the Ministry of Transportation and
OLICE
NOTES

Communication in Toronto, there has
been a sharp decline in the number of
car deaths since the law went into effect
on Jan 1, 1976.
Cown said that in 1975 before the law
was enacted there were 18,000 fatalities
due to car accidents. By 1983, that
figure fell to 1,138. During this same
time period, thernumberof vehicles on
the road had increased from 3 million to
5.5 million. The number of drivers also
increased by 2 million from the 1975
figure of 3.5 million.
DESPITE statistics pointing to
merits of seat belt use, some groups are
opposed to the legislation.
The Libertarian Party is one group
that has been vocally opposed to the
bill. Although William Krebaum, for-
mer state chairman of the party, ad-
mits that wearing a seat belt is a "good
idea," he does not want to see it become
a mandatory law.
"The Libertarian's position is that
peopfe should have the right to live
their lives the way they want to. And
that the state should not be telling
people what to do," he said.
"It's their own life they're risking if
they don't wear it. Just as someone who
smokes tobacco or drinks alcohol is
risking their own lives," Krebaum said.
Virginia Cropsey, issues chairperson
for the Libertarian Party, calls the
legislation a "silly, silly issue."
