Question: How do you feel about ads in which women are exploited?
Barry Horivitz, LSA
sophomore: People don't
realize that they carry sexist
and racist attitudes around
every day and respond to
them automatically. We have
to make ourselves aware of
our responses and work to
Paul Devlin, LSA senior: I
think it's a problem, a terrible
thing, but there is a reason
why they are doing it, because
it works. In order for it to stop,
we have to start letting adver-
tisers know that ads like that
are going to' stop us from
buying the product instead of
encouraging us to buy it.
Elizabeth Hume, LSA
sophomore: It's horrible, but
it's part of our culture. It's
typical of the society we live
Eric Holt, Engineering'
freshman: I love it. I don't
think it's morally correct, but
I enjoy reading the ads.
Engineering sophomore: One
could always say that the
woman is being exploited, but
on the other hand she knows
exactly what she is doing. The
woman always has the option
of not doing the ad.
Cindy Davis, LSA freshman:
'Theyare exploited the same
way as men in ads. Men are in
the same type ads as women
and used for the same pur-
pose: attracting members of
the opposite sex to a product.
Blanchard vows to help Mazda
LANSING - Gov. James Blanchard yesterday vowed the state will take
steps to make up for a shortfall in expected federal financing of Mazda
Motor Co.'s planned Flat Rock plant.
The governor described as "A minor roadblock" a decision Thursday by
Samuel Pierce Jr., secretary of Housing and Urban Development, to make
the Japanese automaker eligible for only $2.5 million of a minimum $6.5
million interest-free economic development loan.
"The financing piece is solved, period," he said.
Precise details were not yet available, however.
Blanchard also said he is confident that labor negotiations with southeast
Michigan's building trade contractors will be solved.
The parties resumed negotiations in the governor's Detroit office yester-.
day afternoon, Blanchard said.
W. Germany backs 'star wars'
DALLAS - Senior West German officials, insisting on full partnership
with the Reagan administration on "Star Wars," said yesterday they sup-
port the U.S. space research program but that top priority should be put on
reaching an agreement with the Soviet Union to sharply reduce offensive
In fact, if the Strategic Defense Initiative forces the Soviets into an arms
limitation accord "the option of completely dispensing with defense systems
is open," said Horst Teltschik, national security advisor to Chancellor
He urged the Reagan administration not to let differences over the
Strategic Defense Initiative weaken the unity of the North Altantic Treaty
Organization and said no program should slow down "a dialogue with East
and West in all domains."
Much of the attention at the start of the three-day conference centered on
President Reagan's search for a way to shield th'United States and its allies
from attacking Soviet missiles.
Economic indicators up
WASHINGTON-The government's main economic forecasting gauge
posts a strong gain in February, despite weather-related slow downs, prom-
pting the Reagan administration and private economists to predict a
rebound in economic activity in coming months.
The Index of"Leading Indicators rose 0.7 percent last month following an
even stronger 1.5 percent increase in January, the Commerce Department
The index, composed of a dozen forward-looking business statistics, had
been signaling weaker activity since lastJune, when it dropped 0.9 percent,
breaking a string, of 21 consecutive increases. It suffered three more declines
since then, including a 0.5 percent December drop.
However, the January gain, the strongest in 17 months, and the February
increase have given new encouragement to those who believe the recovery is
about to enter another period of strong growth.
The strength in the leading index stood in contrast to the government's
estimate last week that the economy is growing at a sluggish rate of 2.1 per-
cent during the first three months of the year.
Duarte vies for voter support
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador - The president's job is not at stake in
tomorrow's elecion, but Jose Napoleon Duarte is running hard in an effort to
change the balance in a legislature that has blocked or hamstrung many of
In continuing pre-election violence, gunmen yesterday killed a woman and
wounded "several" other passengers when they opened fire on a bus near El
Triunfo, 74 miles east of the capital, civilian and military sources said. The
military sources said they believed leftist guerrillas seeking to enforce their
ban on traffic before the balloting were responsible. The sources asked not to
be identified for security reasons.
The rebels earlier issued a warning telling drivers to stay off the country's
highways as of Thursday. They did not say how long their ban would remain
if effect, but they have used the tactic frequently as a means of disrupting
Voters will choose a 60-member National Assembly and 262 mayors. Duar-
te's moderate Christian Democrats are given little chance of picking up the
seven seats needed for a majority in the assembly, but he wants at least to
keep the rightist bloc from gaining enough strength to override his veto.
Police patrol Khartoum streets
KHARTOUM, Sudan - Police and soldiers patrolled the deserted streets
of Khartoum and guarded the U.S. Embassy yesterday in the wake of three
days of anti-government and anti-American rioting sparked by price in-
"It is a normal Friday here," one resident of the Sudanese capital said in
reference to the Moslem holy day during which shops and businesses are
Sudan's union leaders appealed to people to return to work Sunday and
"guard their property and that of their employers" against saboteurs, the
official Sudan news agency reported.
Police and army units remained on duty guarding the U.S. Embassy in
downtown Khartoum, which has been a target of the demonstrators because
of stringent economic measures favored by the U.S. The security'force also
patrolled other parts of the capital.
Eileen Chick, School of Music
sophomore: I feel.that sexist
exploitation is a problem.
However, I tend to notice the
use of men in ads more than
women. I feel that physical at-
tractiveness should not be
used in such a manipulative way.
Aubrey Lynch, LSA fresh-
man: I don't think women
should put up with it. It makes
it very hard for them because
every woman can't be like
women in ads. It seems like
advertisers have to use
beautiful women to sell their
products. It also makes it hard
for men because to be an all-
American man you have to
have women like the ones in
Wendy Hinman, LSA junior:
Ads show women as sub-
missive. It reinforces a lot of
society's confused attitudes
about the status of women. It's
hard to take a woman
seriously in the business place
when you continually see them
exploited in a picture or ad. It
defeats attempts to overcome
these old attitudes.
Judy Sheridan, LSA senior:
On a superficial level it's fun-
ny, but when you think about
the methods of advertising -
it's scary that something like
that really sells a product.

Shapiro said education is important
in making a dual career marriage
work. "Getting education is investing in
yourself...The more education a young
woman can get, the more opportunities
and the more doors she leaves open for
a viable career."
Additionally, Levin feels that couples
must value each other. "You have to
buy into each other's value systems,'
believe in one another. If you don't, you
have a real recipe for disaster."
Finally, the whole panel agreed that
luck and good fortune play a major
role. "We were very lucky. We couldn't
