MSU axes consol
The Michigan State University ad-
ministration has axed a proposal to,-
merge its three liberal arts colleges in-
to one "super-college" because of
The merger, proposed by Provost
Clarence Winder and President Cecil
Mackey during the fall of 1983, was
designed to strengthen communication
between the colleges and improve the
quality of the university's liberal arts
The plan would have combined the
colleges of Arts and Letters, Natural
Science, and Social Science, into one
College of Arts, all functioning under
Winder recently dropped the plan af-
ter reviewing recommendations made
by a faculty evaluation panel. The 18-
member committee concluded that a
single dean would be unable to meet the
needs of the combined departments.
"The consolidation would not have
become operational because too many
faculty and administrators opposed it,"
said Frederick Williams, chairperson
of the history department.
Despite the strong opposition, there
are some who still feel that the merger
would be a step in the right direction.
"It seems to me this is one
organization that most of the univer-
sities in the Big Ten follow," said Sam
Baskett, English department chair-
"We're out of step," said George
Mansour, chairman of the department
of romance and classical languages.

Univ. of Illinois official

For the second time in one year, the
University of Illinois chancellor will
decide if discrimination against
homosexuals should be prohibited in
registered student organizations.

amendment to the "Code on Campus

organization cannot discriminate on the

amendment would add sexual orien-
tation to the list.
Last March, then-chancellor John
Cribbet vetoed a similar proposal
because it lacked enough evidence to
support the policy, said Georgia Green,
an associate linguistics professor who
chaired the committee that submitted
the ill-fated proposal.
"We hope to do a better job this time
by making the presentation more effec-

must halt alcohol sales
All Massachusetts state colleges and
universities are being forced to halt
campus alcohol sales because they
cannot find an insurance company to
carry their alcohol liability policies.
Many experts claim the trend could
spread nationwide, making college
bars and campus liquor sales obsolete.
"No other state is in as severe a
position as Massachusetts, yet," said
Mark Rosenberg of the Insurance In-
formation Institute. "But it's a growing
problem around the country and it
could easily become as severe in other

State proposes farm loans
LANSING-The state of Michigan is proposing to pump $70 million into
local banks so troubled farmers can finance spring planting, the Blanchard
administration said yesterday.
The loan program is part of a four-point plan designed "to help farmers
over the hump" until the farm economy turns around, said Gov. James
Under the loan program, the state would deposit money in local banks,
which will then in turn loan the money to farmers. The state will get between
8 percent and 8.5 percent interest on its money, enabling the banks to loan
the funds at less than market rates, said Treasurer Robert Bowman.
"The decision will still rest with the bank," he said. "They are in the
business of making creditdecisions and I'm not."
The program requires approval of the Legislature, which does not return
from its Easter break until April 16.
To be effective the money must be available within the next two weeks,
said Elton Smith, president of the Michigan Farm Bureau.
Milk poisoning spreads to Mich.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill.-Officials yesterday investigated a second brand of

two deaths and suspected of causing illnesses in 2,200 people in five states.

Japan announces trade plan
TOKYO-Japan unveiled- measures yesterday to open its lucrative
markets to foreign goods and Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone warned of
"a terrible depression" unless the nation reduces its huge trade surplus with
the United States.
Although the market-opening measures had been highly touted by the
Japanese media, one U.S. official dismissed it as a "big yawn" and said it
was a step backward in making Japan's key telecommunications market
more accessible to American firms.
A Japanese official conceded the market-opening package, the seventh
announced by Japan in four years, was "not really a new trade package" but
a summary of concessions made in recent trade talks with the United States.
Nakasone urged the Japanese, in a nationally televised speech and news
conference after the program was announced, to "please buy foreign

But an official of the Immigration and Naturalization Service in Boston

political asylum to refugees from communist countries, but rarely gives the
same right to Central American immigrants.

Charles River from Boston, would be available to the refugees.
Fires blaze across upper N.C.
SCRANTON, N.C.-Firefighters jockeyed pumps to' flood fires and
helicopters dropped water yesterday on blazes in three eastern North
Carolina counties that have consumed 95,000 acres of brush and burned up to
8 feet deep in peat bogs.
"It's not an open and running fire," said Obie Willingham, records officer
for the North Carolina Forest Service at the Hyde County command post.
"We've got it pretty well hemmed in, but it's still a very dangerous fire."
At the Pungo Lake National Wildlife Refuge, fire "raced through there
faster than any man can run," said refuge manager Larry Ditto.
Sustained northwest winds at 20 mph were reported in eastern North
Carolina with gusts between 28 mph and 32 mph, and Willingham said the
wind and humidity as low as 25 percent made the fourth day of the fire "one
of the mostsevere fire days all year
The state Insurance Department estimated damages to private property in
Washington County at $665,000 Monday, but estimates were not complete for
two other counties. In western North Carolina, forest fires destroyed $4

Officials urge more corporate day care
WASHINGTON (AP) - Day care is a profitable in-
vestment as well as a pressing public need, gover-
nment and business officials said yesterday in urging
corporations to increase the quality and availability
of child care.
"Child care used to be a special and limited need.
Today, it is a social and economic necessity," Gov.
Thomas Kean of New Jersey said in opening a con-
ference on the issue. "But to this date, our response
has been grossly inadequate."
"THE BUSINESS sector has a tremendous oppor-
tunity. Child care makes good business sense," he
said, noting that such programs have been shown to
reduce absenteeism and turnover, increase
productivity, raise morale, improve company
reputations, and attract and retain skilled labor.
Speaker after speaker at the conference, sponsored
by the National governors Association, noted that
there are nearly 8.5 million preschool-age children
with working mothers, with another 1.5 million ex-
pected by 1980..
"This may well prove to be the premier issue of the
'80s for both the family and human resource
managers. This is no longer a woman's issue or a
class issue, if indeed it ever was," said Leonard
Silverman, vice president for human resources at
Hoffman-LaRoche Inc., which operates what Kean
called "the Cadillac of day care programs."
SILVERMAN said many corporations respond to
the day care issue by saying it's not their problem
and it costs too much.
"Corporate-sponsored child care is no favor. It's an
investment," he said. "And nearly everything a firm
does is tax deductible or eligible for a tax incentive."
Silverman said 100 companies had day care
programs in 1979, compared with 1,500 today. The
grandfather of them all originated 15 years ago at
Stride Rite Corp. in Massachusetts.
Arnold Hiatt, president and chairman of the board
of Stride Rite, said the investment of about $150,000
annually to care for some 100 children has more than
paid off in a happier, more productive, more com-
Hiatt said his company helped other firms set up 50
"Fifty sounds impressive but it's a very limited
response to a very limitless need," he said, lamenting
"the slowness of the corporate community to
recognize a critical need" comparable to the
minimum wage and child labor laws.
Israeli jets destroy PLO headquarters
SHEMLAN, Lebanon (AP) - Israeli
jets attacked this Chouf Mountain town
at dawn yesterday and destroyed a
building the Israeli military called a
Eight Palestinian and Druse fighters
were reported killed in the raid, Israel's
fifth air attack of this year on positions

military sources in Tel Aviv said the
target, eight miles southeast of Beirut
was. a headquarters for the Popular
Struggle Front, a Marxist faction of the
Palestine Liberation Organization.
IN SOUTHERN Lebanon, witnesses
said tank-led Israeli armored columns
conducted a search-and-arrest raid in
the port of Tyre. The witnesses said the
Israelis seized at least 25 men and
hauled them away in a truck.
Following the Israeli air raid, a
Druse militia commander in Shemlan,
who declined to give his name, said half
of those killed were Palestinian
guerrillas and the rest were from Druse
leader Walid Jumblatt's Progressive
Socialist Party militia.
They were killed by a single bomb
that destroyed a two-story, white stone
building on Shemlan's eastern outskir-
IT WAS Israel's closest air strike to
Beirut since the 1982 invasion of
Lebanon. At that time, PLO chairman
Yasser Arafat's enclave in the Moslem
sector of Beirut was repeatedly at-
tacked by Israeli jets.
Palestinian guerrillas opposed to
Arafat and backed by Syria have
filtered back into the Druse-controlled
central Lebanese mountains after the
Israeli army's 1983 evacuation of the
region. Reporters on Tuesday saw
about 25 guerrillas gathered near ruins
of the bombed post.
In Israel, Prime Minister Shimon
Peres told Israel radio that the raid was
a preventive strike. "They acted to
prevent a terrorist unit from acting in
the future," he said.
The raid in Tyre, 50 miles south of
Beirut, began when four tanks led a
column of 40 armored personnel
carriers and 12 jeeps moved into the old
section of the city, witnesses said.

"This is a real honor - our whole gr-

been able to create an awareness on the
campus. That was the point of the
program," he said.
"MOST OF the people here do more

Indeed, many of the recipients of the
achievement awards were involved in
over five extra-curricular activities.
Byron Roberts, an LSA senior,
received an achievement award for
acting as a research associate on issues
pertaining to minority student receuit-
ment, retention, and graduation,
among other activities.
"Too often these days students get too
wrapped up in books. You develop
yourself best when you're helping
others. It's hard to say how successful
my input has been - all you can do is
hope you touch one person," he said.
Several students were awarded for
their resistance to the code.

Henry Johnson donned a "no-code" pin
given to him by Scott Page.
