Universities may face more state control

Sen. William Sederburg (F-East Lan-
sing) shared McKinney's thoughts.
Sederburg is chairman of the commit-
tee, formed to look at the commission's
recommendations, revealed last
December, and to make proposals for
their implementation to the Senate.
He said that there is a critical need
for the state to clarify what it is asking
state institutions to accomplish. But he
added that "recognition must be given
to the multiple missions given to each
institution. All institutions participate
in varying degrees, in instruction,
research, and public service."
YESTERDAY'S hearing was the
seventh in a series examining the
commission's report. After listening to
the.testimony of McKinney and another
citizen, Sederburg drew up a rough
outline endorsing all of the recommen-
dations in the report except those
calling for separate role definitions and
the special funding formula.
His outline is not final, however. The
committee is scheduled to release a
complete report of its findings in June
with a tentative report in April con-
taining budget suggestions for the
In general, Sederburg said there was
"vast support for the report." The roles
and missions recommendations has
received the brunt of criticism thus far,
But the $25 million research excellen-
ce fund is widely supported, he said.
The state Office of Management and
Budget is due to release its recommen-
dation on how the fund should be
divided in the next few weeks.

Popcorn is good for you and the sellers

HOT AIR popcorn makers, which do
not require oil for popping, appear to be
the most popular, Clemons said.
"People are trying to stay away from
grease and oil," he explained.
Some students, however, find that it's
more convenient to buy popcorn than
make it themselves.
Tice's on State Street pops an
average of 50 pounds or $300 worth of
"Certified hybrid-guaranteed to pop"
kernels a day, according to Sascha
Knoblich, a store salesperson.
MOST OF IT is sold between noon and
4 p.m. on the hour when classes get out,,
Otto's, located on Liberty street, pops
about the same amount, said Glenn
Sun, an Otto's manager. Sales peak
during lunch time and on Friday and
Saturday nights, he said.
But selling popcorn day in and day,
out can get pretty tiresome. At least
that's what sales clerks in popcorn-
selling stores say.
"I GOT VERY sick of it six years
ago," Sun said. He added that he rarely
eats the fluffy stuff now.
"I like throwing it at customers bet-
ter" than eating it, said Knoblich, a
salesperson at Tice's. He added that he
does eat it - sometimes.
And why eat popcorn in the first
NELSON offered one explanation.
Popcorn's popularity is related to the
fact that many people have kicked the
smoking habit, he said.
"A lot of people are not smoking
anymore and popcorn helps them to
keep their mouths busy," Nelson said.

There have been no new reportings of

cautiously optimistic that no. more
cases will surface.
"I'm reasonably confident that we've
got it under control," said Dr. John At-
water, director of Washtenaw County's
JUST OVER a year ago, a similar
outbreak in Markley dormitory
sparked an intense inoculation drive in
the dorms. This time, however, fewer
people were inoculated as a result of the
outbreak. There has been no massive
Atwater said the less frantic response
'occurred because many people were
inoculated' last year and since most
people already received the vac-
Atwater said that people who are un-
sure of their inoculation status should
be sure to get a vaccination. There is
nothing wrong with getting a repeat
vaccination, he said.
People born between 1957 and 1968,
Atwater said, have a higher risk of con-
tracting the disease because the vac-
cinations used then were not widely
,distributed and were often ineffective.
People who have already had measles
are not susceptible, he added.
Characteristics of regular measles at
first appear to resemble cold sym-
ptoms, but an itchy rash develops soon
afterwards. German measles is
characterized by a less intense rash,
and often is not accompanied by even a
A coordinator at the People's Food
Co-op on Packard offered one ex-
planation. He said his store sells pop-
corn kernels for people who are already
hooked on organic food.
Its primary difference is that it is
grown without the, help of herbicides
and pesticides. It is also more expen-
sive than the popcorn kernels bought in
THE RELATIVELY low cost of pop-
corn compared to other snack foods is
another reason for its popularity.
And it's nutritious.
"It is a low calorie food, contains
thiamine and a small amount of fiber,"
according to Eleanor Pearsall, a
nutritionist at Nutrition and Food
Systems Inc. on Mt. Pleasant St. "It's a
good snack because it does not cling to
the teeth and does not contribute to
tooth decay," she added.
"We also recommend it to children
and people who want to lose weight,
Pearsall said. She cautioned, however,
that once butter and oil is added, its
calorie count can double. Three cups
of unbuttered popcorn that is not
cooked in oil contains about 60 calories,
"Popcorn is a lucrative business ven-
ture because it's an established snack
food and not just a fad," said Michael
Tines, an Otto's manager.
"This is strictly business. My favorite
snack is potato chips," he said.
