The University administrator
responsible for minority student affairs
is one of four finalists being considered
for the presidency of Florida A&M
University, an official in Tallahassee
said yesterday.
Florida regents will probably decide
on March 29 whether Niara Sudarkasa,
associate vice president for academic
affairs, will get the position.
SUDARKASA and the three other
finalists will receive a final interview in
Memphis two weeks from now, accor-
ding to Steve McCarthur, a vice chan-
cellor of Florida's public universities.
But even though she made the final
four of 213 initial applicants, Sudarkasa
is reserved about her chances of getting
the job.
"I'm making no assumptions about
getting the position,"' she said., ';I'm

COLUMBUS - It's time to celebrate
a victory, but in the future, the
Michigan basketball team should
probably postpone its jubilation until
after the game.
Leading by 17 points with just over 12
minutes to play, the Wolverines relaxed
and permitted Ohio State to get back in-
to the contest before eventually dousing
the Buckeyes, 77-72, last night in loud
and raucous St. John's Arena.
ANTOINE Joubert calmly sank six
straight foul shots in three crucial one-
one situations in the last 38 seconds to
preserve the victory.The league cham-
pion Wolverines now stand at 15-2 in the
Big Ten and 24-3 overall. Michigan
sealed its 15th consecutive win, the
longest streak in the school's history.
Ohio State, meanwhile, fell to 10-7 in
the conference and 18-9 overall. The
Buckeyes' chances for an NCAA
tournament bid are dimished consider..
ably with the loss.
"We beat an excellent basketball
Associated Press team," said Michigan coach Bill
Oo SFrieder. "We made some crucial
Ohio State s Joe Concheck can only stand helplessly as center Roy Tarpley mistakes and it just shows you that
puts in two of his game-high 23 points iMichigan's 77-72 win last nigh,. Tar- we've got a long way to go ourselves."
pley also had 16 rebounds as the Wolverines improved their record to 24-3, MICHIGAN led at halftime, 38-29,
and 15-2 in the Big Ten.

OSU falls 77-72 as
'M' notches record

and then exploded after the inter-
mission. Center Roy Tarpley, who led
all scorers with 23 points, floated a hook
'shot through the hoop to begin a 6-point
Wolverine spurt at the start of the
second half.
Richard Rellford, again having an
excellent game at both ends of the
court, dropped a driving lay-up, Butch
Wade crushed a dunk, and Gary Grant
pummeled the Ohio State nets with an
outside jdmper.
When the Buckeyes finally collected
their breath, at 12:53 of the half, a 54-37
score stared them in the face. The
Wolverines' high-fives appeared, a few
scattered number-1 signals were sent
out, and a mood of celebration gripped
the Michigan bench.
"WHAT really hurt us was the first
five minutes of the second half," said
Buckeye guard Ronnie Stokes. "They
got out by 16 or 17 points and we

couldn't get back in-the game."
Grant, in particular, was all smiles.
The freshman from Canton, Ohio was
thought to be going to Ohio State last
year before he decided to enroll at
Michigan. Consequently, he was
heavily booed by the Buckeye faithful.
"I was listening, but later in the
game, they weren't talking to me as
much," said Grant.
STOKES, A teammate of Grant's at
McKinley High School, capitalized on
Michigan's lax play and mounted the
long but furious Ohio State combat. The
5-11. guard sank a jumper to cut
Michigan's lead to 10, then stole an in-
bounds pass at 4:54 and converted the
ensuing lay-up to pull the margin down
to eight points, 64-56.
After the Wolverines called a time-
out, Stokes pumped in two more lay-ups
and the lead was down to four with four

U o nidiscusses

Ann Ryan, chairman of MSA's women issues committee,
told the University Council yesterday that more was needed
to combat the problem of rape on campus than a code of non-
academic conduct.
"The University does not demonstrate its concern for
women's safety by advocating the implementation of the
code," she said, "the University however would show their
concern by activating preventive programs such as im-
proved lig! ag, night time transportation, and counseling
"MANY WOMEN hesitate going to the library, to the
movies, or doing other things they might normally do at night
if they were guaranteed safe passage."
She recommended to the council several steps to help en-
sure the safety of women on campus, including an expansion
of Night Owl services, improved lighting around campus,
and an emergency phone system which would send help.

"Imagine a victim trying to dial for help while she's being
attacked," said Ryan, and if you don't believe that it's dark
at night try by going out to the Diag at 9 p.m. Much of the
lighting on campus is done for aesthetic purposes, not for
RYAN ALSO proposed educational improvements to com-
bat a second and little known kind of rape, date or acquain-
tance rape.
"Nobody ever talks about date rapes," said Ryan. "We
have to tell women that it's OK to say no. If you're in an un-
comfortable situation, get out. It doesn't matter if he paid $25
for dinner, get out."
"The Code does not provide lights, it does not provide
educational work shops or the preventive held we so
desperately need. It seems like action too late."
THE COUNCIL also spoke with Ryan and Jeffifer Faigel,
" editor of the MSA News about how they'd prosecute alleged

Members of the Equality and In-
dividual Rights panel called for less
state intervention in domestic disputes
in a discussion at the Michigan League
"There are cases where agreements
are better made outside of the courts,"
said Helen Bennett, a psychiatric social
worker, "though you do have to have a
back up system."
ALAN LEBOW, executive director of
Fathers for Equal Rights, began the
discussion of the rights of non-custodial
parents. Lebow said that after a
husband and wife separate "the only.
right of the father is the right to pay."
Paul Meyer, speaking for the
Democratic Socialists, added that
fathers have the right to pay but in our
society, they also have the right to earn.
Lebow said he prefers to see the issue
of custodial rights not exclusively in
terms of men's and women's rights
because children's rights are also in-
"THE WHOLE attitude of the state is
that children are the property of the gover-
nment," said Libertarian League
member James Hudker.
"I don't think sexism is the orly
problem," said Bennett, "there is the
problem of greed." Bennett noted that a

percentage of all court costs for divorce
cases are set aside as a cache to be used
to pay judges retirement benefits.
"There is a real incentive to keep
people coming back," she added.
Bennett suggested that men and
women considering separation should
meet with trained counselors and try to
avoid the courts.
"I AM MORE in favor of the
democratization of the judicial system
than in its abolition," said Meyer. He
thought the courts were not sensitive to
the needs of the individual.
Some of the members of the audience
felt that opposing viewpoints had not
been adequately represented.
"They weren't arguing," said Wendy
Lockwood, an LSA senior, "they didn't
have anything to argue about."
"They had no one to argue with," said
Tom Ferguson.
"I felt the moderator used this time to
air his own political views," said a
University senior who wished to remain
anonymous, "he tried to move the flow
of the discussion away from the specific
issues of equality and individual
Yesterday's panel discussion entitled
"Equality and Individual Rights" was
sponsored by the Ann Arbor Liber-
tarian League.

NEW YORK (AP) Health authorities are
becoming increasingly concerned about the safety of
fragrant, clove-and-tobacco Indonesian cigarettes
called kreteks, whose U.S. sales have jumped from 16
million a year in 1980 to more than 100 million last
Dr. Frederick Schechter, a surgeon at the Univer-
sity of California at Irvine, has assembled four cases
in which teen-agers who smoked kreteks subsequen-
tly came down with severe pneumonia-like illnesses.
Two of the teen-agers died.
"WHAT IS most appalling is that government of-
ficials, schools and parents were unaware that this
had become a universal habit," Schechter said in an
interview yesterday.
On Monday, Ronald and Carole Cislaw of Hun-

*1 Je-

tington Beach, Calif., filed a $25 million lawsuit
against a munufacturer of clove cigarettes, conten-
ding that their 17-year-old son, Tim, suffered
breathing difficulties that led to his death after
smoking several "Djarum Specials" on March 2,
Schechter treated the boy. "Apparently, although
Timmy had been sick for two weeks, he did not get
really sick until he smoked these cigarettes,"
Schechter said.
THE CIGARETTES, sold under brand
names including Djarum, Jakarta, and Gudand
Garam, are made of about 70 percent tobacco an 30
percent clove, said Dr. . Sue Binder, a medical
epidemiologist at the federal Centers for Disease
Control in Atlanta.

The active ingredient in the cloves is eugenol,
which in its purified form is used as an anesthetic by
dentist, said Binder.
" THERE HAVE BEEN patients hospitalized after
smoking clove cigarettes, but we haven't really done
any studies yet to show whether there's a link bet-
ween clove cigarettes and the hospitalization of these
patients," said Binder.
Eugenol is on the U.S. Food and Drug Ad-
ministration's GRAS list Generally Recognized As
Safe, but no one has examined eugenol's effect on the
sensitive tissues in the respiratory system, said
In the absence of government safety studies, "The
kids are being allowed to field test it," said

PSN puts 'U' on trial

On the eve of the trial of seven Progressive Student Net-
work members arrested one year ago today for conducting a
sit-in at electrical engineering Prof. George Haddad's
laboratory, several PSN members put the University on
trhere was no judge, no jurors, no lawyers, and the "cour-
troom" was a classroom in East Quad, but 13 students
gathered around in a circle and discussed whether or not the
University should be doing military research on campus.
MILITARY RESEARCH, they argued, violates the
provisions of the Nuremburg trials held after World War II.
PSN member David Miklethun, read from the trial tran-
scripts: "A. Crimes of peace: 1. The planning, preparation,
}or initiation of war or aggression against any other country.
"The research that's being done on this campus clearly
describes preparation for a first strike in war," Miklethun
said. "I consider this planning for aggression."
In defense of the research, Chuck Lipsik, an RC freshman,
said that stopping research which "granted may have
military uses, but could also have beneficial aspects is like
cutting off your nose to spite your face."
HE CITED examples of possible defense department spon-
sored research for tanks which might develop a stronger
metal for automobiles. Lipsik defended Haddad's diode
}research by pointing out that a diode has numerous uses

besides military applications. A diode, he said, could be used
to help link hospital computers.
Nancy Aronoff, an LSA sophomore and one of two demon-
strators sent to jail last month for their part in the sit-in,
responded that the diodes being researched by Prof. Haddad
did not have civilian applications.
"In these computer communications you talk about, it in-
volves producing energy for a long period of time. These
diodes produce such high energy that it would burn out in'
short time," said Koch.
On allowing research for defensive purposes because of the
possibility of peaceful applications, the prosecution argued,
as Deane Baker, a Rackham graduate student said, "if they
can have peaceful purposes, why fund them through the
Department of Defense? If we focus the research just to find
the peaceful means, it would be quicker, cheaper and sim-
MIKLETHUN SAID that "no matter how much the ad-
ministration would like for us to believe that research takes
places in a vacuum, it's always for a purpose. The question
we have to ask is why is the research being done, not 'will it
have beneficial aspects other than its main purpose.' "
"What it boils down to," Aronoff said, "is how much you
trust the people the research is being done for. Having seen
the kind of decisions they make, I don't trust them."
