a second five-year appointment as the
Dean of the College according to a
memo released yesterday by Billy
Frye, vice president for academic af-
fairs and provost.
Frye, who solicited LSA faculty ap-
praisal of the dean in a letter early in
the term, said in the memo that the
response was favorable. "I am pleased
to tell you that the prevailing sentiment
was strongly in support of (Steiner's)
continuation," the memo said.
THE reappointment of the dean will
require the approval of the Board of
Regents. Frye will make the recom-
mendation at the next regent's

will expire in June 1986, was reported to

Faculty members around the college.
"THE DEAN has done a fine job,"
said Carl Cohen, a philosophy
professor. "I think Dean Steiner's fun-
damental interest is on the intellectual
strength and development of the
college," Cohen said, and that is also
the thoughts of the faculty,.
"He's been a very efficient dean,"
said Jack Meiland, associate dean for
long range planning. "He has excellent
control of the budget and he represents
college interests very powerfully and
strongly at the college level." Meiland
also said the dean has been very careful
in preserving the college's quality.
Frye consulted with the College
Executive Committee to find out how to
get faculty input. He also requested the
committee's assessment of the dean's
"THE committee was wholehear-
"He's a very effective leader and very
efficient dean," said another executive
committee member, Deming Brown.
"(Steiner) has the welfare of the
college very much in heart," he added.
"I think he has been excellent in sup-
porting ...enhancing the liberal arts in
the University," said Albert Feuer
wekrer, the history department chair-
"He is simply dedicated to the good of
the college that's what you want in a
dean," Meiland said.
Frye also asked the faculty of LSA to
point out any "special problems" they
felt the college would face in the up-
coming years. Frye said such topics in-
clude finances, undergradute-graduate
student relations, demographics, and
the declining college age population.

"We get information from school

spokesman for First National Services,
a larger company in Chicago.
AND IF students are on one mailing
list, they probably are on others. The
list vendors will sell the same list to any
business, but not to competitors.
One way a consumer can trace junk
mail back to the same mailing list is to
look for similar typographical or
spelling mistakes on various adver-
tisements. But that isn't always the
Visa, for instance, puts its new
mailing lists through a "merge purge"
computer program to eliminate
duplication. The names on a new list
are knocked out if the names are
already on Visa's original list.
But if there is a misspelled name in a
would-be duplication, then the con-
sumer will receive two copies of the
mailing, according to Barbara Bain,
director of Visa's direct mail
marketing in Detroit.
JUNK MAIL is ignored by some
students, appreciated by others.
"I get the ultimate junk mail
catalogues because of the magazines I
used to get," said Rodney Myers, an
LSA freshman. He was particularly
angry, he said, when a free sample box
of female personal products arrived ir
his mail one day.
"That's one of my pet peeves," added
Cynthia Urbytes, an LSA senior. "I
don't need the hassle of junk mail." She
said she avoids subscribing to
magazines in order to prevent her
name from getting on mailing lists.
But junk mail isn't a hassle - but a
pleasure in fact - for some students.
"At least that way we get some
mail," laughed LSA sophomore Pat
Beaubien about all of the advertising
that she finds in her East Quad

NATO urges U.S. space research
LUXEMBOURG-NATO defense ministers yesterday urged the United
States to move ahead with research on a space-based missile defense and
said the program is in the Western alliance's security interests.
Caspar Weinberger, the U.S. defense secretary, said he was "extremely
pleased" by the allies' support for the research, which the Soviet Union has
said would start an arms race in space.
The ministers, in a closing statement at their regular spring strategy
session, also pledged to continue installation of 572 medium range nuclear
missiles in Western Europe unless an arms control pact is reached at the
U.S.-Soviet talks in Geneva.
Lord Carrington, the NATO secretary-general, disclosed for the first time
that 134 of the U.S. cruise and Pershing 2 missiles had been deployed in
Europe, including 16 cruise missiles in Belgium earlier this month.
Carrington gave no other breakdown of the deployments.
NATO previously had kept the figures secret.
Police can't shoot unarmed
suspects, Supreme Court says
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court, in a ruling that will affect policies in
25 states, said yesterday police officers cannot shoot to kill to stop an unar-
med and non-dangerous suspect.
The court, voting 6-3, struck down Tennessee's fleeing felon privision
allowing police to use deadly force if necessary to prevent a suspect from
"A police officer may not seize an unarmed, non-dangerous suspect by
shooting him dead." Justice Byron White wrote for the court. "It is not bet-
ter that all felony suspects die than that they escape.
Twenty-five states allow use of deadly force to stop suspected felons who
ignore police orders to halt. But about two-thirds of the metropolitan police
departments in those states already restrict use of deadly force to violent
crimes or life-threatening situations.
Wednesday's ruling stemmed from the shooting death of an unarmed 15-
year-old black Memphis youth suspected of committing a $10 burglary in Oc-
Hijacker surrenders to Turks
ISTANBUL, Turkey-A lone hijacker seized a Lufthansa jetliner en route
from West Germany to Greece yesterday and forced it to fly to Istanbul. He
released the passengers and surrendered to authorities, the semi-official
Anatolia agency reported.
There were believed to be at least 141 passengers, but government and
airline officials gave conflicting tallies.
Lufthansa officials said the jet was diverted one hour and 25 minutes after
it left Munich, West Germany, and one hour before it was due to arrive in
They said the man had demanded to be flown to Libya in the jetliner.
A security official at Istanbul's Yesilkoy airport said Turkish authorities
had refused the hijacker's request that the plane be refueled.
Anatolia said the man gave up at the airport two hours after he freed all
the passengers and six of the plane's crew members. It said he kept the
pilot, co-pilot, and flight engineer hostage until the end
Turkish state radio reported the release of the passengers an hour after
the Boeing 727 touched down in IstanbuL
High Court splits on nativity vote
WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court divided evenly yesterday to uphold a
ruling that a city may not ban the display of a Nativity scene on public land
simply by saying it unconstitutionally promotes religion.
This was the second day in a row that found the justices voting 4-4 to
uphold lower court rulings in key cases on their docket this term.
The deadlock arose because Justice Lewis Powell, who was out for three
months recovering from surgery for prostate cancer, did not participate in
the case. He has missed arguments in more than 50 cases since January.
Thus far, he has not participated in deciding 13 cases.
When a Supreme Court vote ends in a tie, it upholds the ruling of the last
court to decide the case but makes no nationwide law, raising the prospect of
a similar case reaching the high court.
The tie vote in the Scarsdale, N.Y. creche case-one of the major church-
state cases on the high court's agenda-upholds the decision by the 2nd U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals in states that court covers.
Geneva arms talks commence
GENEVA, Switzerland-U.S. and Soviet negotiators held their first
working session on strategic nuclear weapons yesterday as Moscow warned
that congressional approval of 21 more MX missiles presented "new
logjams" at the talks.
The meeting, lasting 2 hours and 15 minutes, was held at the U.S.
delegation offices on the eighth floor of a building overlooking Lake Geneva.
The U.S. side issued a brief statement with routine details on thelocation
and length of the meeting, the first working session on strategic weapons.
But the Soviet delegation issued an unusual formal statement saying the
talks must center on measures to prevent an arms race in space.
The session came one day after the House of Representatives handed
President Reagan a narrow victory on the MX missile, voting 219-213 to
'authorize spending $1.5 billion this year to build an additional 21 MX
missiles. The Senate approved funding last week.
