Compiled from Associated Press and

Nancy Distel, LSA freshman:
"Support the "No Code"
movement. Change the
registration procedure so that
it goes by credit rather than
the juniors, sophomores, and
freshmen being bunched
together. Work their hardest
to defend student rights."
Mike Vachow,. LSA
sophomore: "Testing the TA's
for english proficiency. I think
the University has shirked on
that so far."
Steve Yanovsky, LSA senior:
"A scholarship program. Get
a slip put on the SVF for an
optional donation to such a
scholarship fund. Make a
point to keep away from
conservative politics. Get bet-
ter in touch with the student
body by having some "fun"
oriented things for pebple who
aren't very political. Stress
opposition to the code; get the

Bonnie Nevel, NR sophomore:
"I think security is very im-
portant, and not enough at-
tention has been paid to it.
The lighting is really bad and
the Night Owl isn't publicized
well enough. People need to
know more about the code.
Also, some kind of test to
make sure TA's are capable
Lorne Brown, LSA senior:
"Improve their channels of
communication with their
constituents. I don't feel my'
needs are heard by them. On-
ce they're voted in they
become insulated. they could
have higher visibility, maybe
take opinion surveys to. find
out what we want, what's on
Andrea Yuschik, LSA senior:
"Continue fighting the code,
encourage minority students.
And there needs to be a cam-
paign to educate the students
about everything that's
available- like advice,, coun-
selling, different places to
study, and different clubs and
activities that are available."
Dolly Quinn, LSA freshman:
"Enforce the proposals that
were on the ballot."
Bob Black, LSA senior: "Do
their best to stop the passing
of the code in its present form.
Help in establishing a peace
studies department. Stop any
kind of weannns research."

Japan admits 'error in judgment'
TOKYO - Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone said yesterday that
Japan's decision to sharply increase auto exports to the United States was an
"error in judgment" about American attitudes.
"With the benefit of hindsight," he told foreign reporters, "maybe we should
have studied the situation more in advance." "But we hope," he said. "it is
understood that we acted in sincerity and good faith."
Under pressure to close a $37 billion trade gap with the United States,
Japan yesterday unveiled an import promotion campaign, urging
housewives to buy more foreign fondue sets and whistling tea kettles.
The campaign follows Nakasone's recent televised plea for each Japanese
citizen to buy $100 worth of foreign goods each year.
Nakasone said he preferred suits from England and Italy, ties from Fran-
ce, razors from Germany, shoes from Italy, and American tennis rackets.
Moreover, he vowed to fight resistance in the government bureaucracy to
widening Japanese markets further to foreign products. Such resistance, he
said, was a major obstacle to solving the trade dispute.
16 more contract salmonella
LANSING - State health officials yesterday said 16 more people have
been made ill in the recent outbreak of salmonella poisoning linked to an -
Illinois dairy, bringing Michigan's total to 43.
In another development that could mean a continuing increase in the
number of reported cases, five Jackson County residents are reported to be
ill, possibly from milk that was purchased at a store in that area.
Previously, the salmonella outbreak was linked only to products from the
company's Kalamazoo County stores, and one in Battle Creek.
Community epidemiologist Harry McGee said "we haven't seen the end of
this by any means."
"If you are to assume that no new people are exposed to the milk we will
still see people getting sick three days from now," he said.
All the victims drank either Millfarm or Bluebrook Dairy-brand 2 percent
milk purchases from Jewel Food Stores, McGee said.
Discovery lifts after rainstorm
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Space shuttle. Discovery blasted through
sodden skies yesterday, avoiding a sixth launch postponement by 55 seconds,
on a voyage that gives Sen. Jake Garn of Utah a demonstration ride like no
After waiting out a rainstorm, Discovery lifted off 55 minutes behind
schedules, beginning an eventful Kennedy Space Center day that would see
the new shuttle Atlantis arrive and Challenger made ready for a flight 17
The Discovery crew, too, had its work cut out. On the schedule yesterday
was the deployment of a Canadian communications satellite. They will laun-
ch a second satellite, to be used for Navy communications, tomorrow.
Garn is aboard Discovery as a congressional observer, but he also is a
working seventh crew member whose contribution to space progress began
in the opening minutes of the five-day fight."
As the space plane climbed to its 285-mile by 184-mile orbit, the senator's
digestive functions were monitored by five sensors on his head, four on his
stomach and three on his chest. It is part of an effort to learn more about how
the human body adapts to weightlessness.
Sikh party threatens to begin
civil disobedience campaign
AMRITSAR, India - The main Sikh political party said yesterday that
government concessions to its demands are not enough, and threatened a
campaign of civil disobedience in Punjab beginning June 1.
Paramilitary units and thousands of police marched through Amritsar,
holy city of the Sikhs, as about 100 Sikh leaders held a strategy meeting
yesterday at the sacred Golden Temple.
Shopkeepers in some parts of the city locked their doors for fear of trouble.
Rajiv Gandhi's federalgovernment announced Thursday that it was lif-
ting a ban on a radical Sikh student's group and ordering a New Delhi
judicial inquiry into anti-Sikh riots that followed the assassination ofhis
mother Oct. 31. The government said Indira Gandhi's killers were two of her
Sikh security guards.
The government said Thursday that it was consiering the release of all
imprisoned Sikhs against whom no criminal charges had been filed. The
state government of Punjab, where members of the religious sect are in the
majority, freed 53 jailed Sikh youths last night.
Ford exec. gets $1 million bonus
DETROIT - Ford Motor Co. announced yesterday it paid former Chair-
man Philip Caldwell a $630,000 salary and $950,000 bonus for 1984, more than
he received a year earlier, when auto executives' pay brought criticism
from unions and the Reagan administration.
The disclosure was made in Ford's yearly compensation announcement
for the top five officers. Caldwell was in his final year as the first non-family
head of the nation's No. 2 auto company.
General Motors Corp. said salary and bonus for Chairman Roger Smith
and GM's other top four officers would be released later in the day.
The 1983 bonuses for Caldwell, Smith and their management teams set off
a wave of criticism against the U.S. auto industry.
Ford said its former President Donald Petersen, who has replaced Cald-
well as chairman, earned a salary of $487,000 and a bonus of $750,000 for 1984.
Caldwell also exercised nearly $2.5 million in stock options in 1984 com-
pared with $5.9 million the previous year, Ford said.

But other students countered that

"This is peaceful civil disobedience,"

A RUMOR CIRCULATED Monday
that a group of football players would

"I hope the University will show
