as Greek president

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Christos Sartzetakis was sworn in
yesterday as the new president of Greece in a ceremony
boycotted by conservative lawmakers who claimed his elec-
tion was legally invalid.
The 56-year-old supreme court judge took the oath of office
in a 10-minute ceremony in Parliament presided over by Ar-
chbishop Seraphim of Athens, Orthodox primate of Greece,
and six black-robed priests.
"OUR COUNTRY can and will go forward with labor and
cooperation from all Greeks without exception," Sartzetakis
said after becoming head of state.
Sartzetakis was backed for the presidency by the ruling
Socialists and was the only candidate in the election by
Parliament. He won 180 votes on Friday, the minimum
required for election on the third and final round of balloting

by the 300-seat Parliament.
Sartzetakis succeeds Constantine Caramanlis, who
resigned as president earlier this monthafter being unexpec-
tedly rejected by the Socialists as a "consensus" candidate
for a second five-year term.
LAWMAKERS from Premier Andreas Papandreou's
Socialist party applauded and shouted "He is worthy!" as
beeswax candles and incense burned on the Parliament's
Deputies from the small pro-Soviet Greek Communist Par-
ty, who joined forces with the Socialists to elect Sartzetakis in
Friday's final parliamentary ballot, also attended the
The opposition New Democracy Party said the election was
invalid because the winning margin required the vote of Soc-


Baby L
Baby Laura, the world's youngest
heart transplant recipient, was
released from University Hospital
yesterday almost five months after her
The 11 month-old baby had been
scheduled to leave the hospital earlier
in the week, but the move was delayed
two days because she came down with a
flu infection.
SHE WILL continue to receive
physiotherapy - gentle tapping on the
chest to keep secretions from building
up - at home from her mother.
"Laura's mother has demonstrated

tura goe
to us the test physiotherapy she will be
performing at home. She has been
working with us for two weeks," said
Martha Walker, who was one of the
nurses to care for Laura.
The baby's mother has been living at
the hospital in order to learn the nur-
ses' daily routine, according to Louise
Callow, another of the nurses that cared
for Laura.
THE REJECTION fighting drugs will
also be given to the baby by her mother.
A side effect of the drugs is to reduce
the body's ability to fight infection.
Because of this added risk, Laura will
be seeing few visitors, Walker said.
"The family just wants to be alone


anyway. They just want some
privacy,"'she said.
Doctors said Laura was in good con-
dition, but they are watching her
"She does have a paralyzed left
diaphragm, but there is a good chance
that this problem may abate as' she
grows," said Dennis Crowley, a
pediatric cardiologist, in a press
The paralyzed diaphragm, Callow
said, is the result of one of the
operations in which a nerve might have
been stretched or damaged slightly.
There is only a slight chance that the
nerve is completely damaged.

At 34. Republican Regent Neal
Nielsen is the youngest member of the
University's top policy-making board.
But whether that translates into a better
understanding of student interests
depends on whom you talk to.

Pro file-
was elected with Nielsen to the Board of
Regents last November, believes that

regent sees
BUT ERIC Schnaufer, the law
school's representative to the Michigan
Student Assembly, doubts Nielsen's
commitment to students.
"I think he works under the assum-
ption that the administration and the
students have the same interests," he
said. This isn't always the case, said
Schnaufer, who has been involved in the
student-administration conflict over
the code for non-academic conduct.
In fact, the University alumnus and
Brighton attorney has flip-flopped on
the conduct code since he came into of-
fice. During his campaign he opposed
the code because he thought the court
systems were able to address student
discipline problems. As a former
assistant prosecutor in Livingston
County, Nielsen said, "I thought the
civil and criminal system were

both sides
BUT NOW, after talking to Univer-
sity administrators, Nielsen said he
sees the problem from the University's
point of view. Even though a student
may be prosecuted and convicted in
court, he cannot be kicked off campus
under current policies. Nielsen thinks
that should be changed.
At the same time, Nielsen takes side
with students who see the "code" as a
dirty word. "I probably wouldn't want
it, either," he said.
"I think that (students') views should
be listened to," he said. "It's their in-
stitution, too."
NIELSEN listens to students, but he
seems reluctant to go beyond soliciting
their opinions.

Ironic skit
At 9:20 last night, a car pulled up in
front of the State Theatre. Amid the
lines of people waiting to get in and the
pickets of the fired projectionists, a
woman stepped out of the car and rolled
out a red carpet.
"You can't directly support war in
Central America, or personally buy an
MX, but you can help indirectly," she
said, greeting the crowd.
TURNING back to the car, she
proceeded to welcome Rich and
Wealthy Kerasotes, who stepped from
the automobile. The couple thanked
everyone for buying tickets to their
theatre and contributing to their for-
The couple really doesn't own the
theater. They along with about 10 other
members of a local acting group came
to protest the firing of the local theater
projectionists when the Kerasotes

Future of
ISA panel

Though student involvement in University
decision-making is limited, the possible
elimination of the LSA Joint Student Faculty
Policy Committee could make it even more un-
The committee, the highest-level panel in the
college on which students sit, will be a topic of
discussion at next- Monday's LSA faculty
meeting. Philosophy Prof. Donald Munro
proposed . the discussion because the LSA
nominating committee encountered
a "certain amount of cynicism" about the
student-faculty body and had difficulty
enlisting enough faculty nominations.

"THE MISSION of the committee is very un-
clear and very few faculty had any idea what it
does," said history Prof. Terrence McDonald,
who is the committee member in charge of
soliciting candidates for the board.
The purpose of the six faculty, six student
committee is "to investigate the educational
health of the college through a combined force
of students and faculty," said co-chairman
Louis Orlin, a Near Eastern studies professor.
The committee is the only mode through which
students can introduce proposals to the faculty.
Last year the committee proposed a set of
faculty guidelines which was rejected by in-
structors. The proposal called for faculty
members to be available during office hours,

hand out syallbi and class outlines at the begin-
ning of the course, ad critique all work that
students hand in.
This term the committee has researched
cheating on campus and will present its report
and recommendations at the April 8 faculty
THE PROBLEM, however, is that no one
seems to know who the JFSPC is or what it
does. Those were the . problems the LSA
nominating committee said it faced in trying to
get faculty members to run for the position on
the board.
According to McDonald there were only 18
nominees for the faculty-student board, about
half as many as 'the other boards. Faculty

members could nominate themselves or be
nominated by other faculty. The nominating
committee also contacted every department
chairman and program director requesting
that nominees be recommended.
"There was very little interest in nominating
faculty or themselves for the office," said Mc-
Donald. Of the 18 people nominated, only 6
people agreed to run, the minimum needed to
fill the three positions. "If we had not gotten six
people, I don't know what we would have
done," he added.
"THE MAJORITY of those who said "no"
had absolutely no understanding of what the
committee did," McDonald said. "It's totally
unclear what the mission or the power to acco-
