The University should discontinue its
medical technology program, accor-
ding to a recommendation made by a
special review committee. The discon-
tinuance has also been endorsed by the
University's central administration.
The Board of Regents is expected to
approve the proposal Thursday at its
THE DECISION by the peer review
committee ends a year of speculation
by faculty members and students about
what will happen to the program, which
despite acknowledged excellence has
consistently cost the University of
$180,000 to maintain.
A questionable demand for the
program was another reason the com-
mittee recommended its termination.
The need is diminighed because the
University's program is one of 23 in
medical technology programs in the
. For Sandra Gluck, director of the
medical technology program, the
recommendation is difficult to accept.
She countered the claim that the
program is too expensive by pointing to
other related programs. "It is expen-
sive," she said, "but no more so than
any allied health program."

points of the committee's report.
Among these is a concern for freshmen

police won't be called in
By KERY MURAKAMI
Students at Columbia University
gained some breathing room yesterday
when university President Michael
Sovern reportedly vowed to Rev. Jesse
Jackson that he would not use police
force to end the anti-apartheid protest
of 400 Columbia students.
The students who have been
blockading the entrance to the univer-
sity's Hamilton Hall-a building which
houses classrooms and administration
offices-have constantly been
threatened with police action since the
protest began 10 days ago.
But Jackson, speaking with student
leaders after his meeting with Sovern,
said that the university president had
assured him that he will not use police
force to disrupt the protest. The
president also agreed to set up a
meeting with Ivy League presidents
next Friday to discuss divestment of.
stocks in companies that do business
with South Africa, Jackson added.
"It is a victory in that we are no
longer threatened," said student leader
Tony Glover, a Columbia senior. "As
long as we can sustain the protest, we
do not have to worry about facing the
When asked how the students would
do against a long waiting game, Glover
said that the students are extremely
committed: "We're pledged to stay
here at least until we graduate," he
President Sovern was unavailable for
The protesters also received a legal
buffer yesterday when New
York State Appellate Court Judge Max
Bloom refused the university's request
to annul a restraining order New York
State Supreme Court justice Bruce
Wright had ordered last week. The or-
der prohibits the university from taking
police action against the students.
"Even if Sovern goes back on his
promise, we still have some security,"
"The trustees and President Sovern
have realized that with the national
support we've gotten, it would be un-
wise to call the cops in," said C. Vernon
Mason, one of the attorneys for the
For the students, Jackson's presence
was a ''needed pump in the arm,"
Glover said. "Jackson being here puts
the focus of this protest nationally."
Rev. Jackson, speaking to the 400
protesters and approximately 2,500
spectators from the steps of Hamilton
Hall, praised the students saying that
"without protests, the university can
live proudly by day and sleep at night with an
Jackson also urged an escalation of
the protest to other campuses around
the country, said Columbia sophomore
John Clavens, a member of the protest.
The demonstrators are trying to per-
suade the university to divest its $39
million in stocks it has invested in 26
companies that do business in South

The exorcism became passionate and

of the exorcists figuratively sucked the
dark spirits from the bicycles. But one

out of the ceremony.
"No, not really," said business school
senior Scott Kudialis. "The thing I en-
joyed about it was that it was a
celebration of spring. Everybody's out
just congregating at the Diag. That to
me is what it was all about."
