"How do you feel about the
Green Bicycle Project?"

Compiled from Associated Press and

Carol Lowry, LSA
sophomore:k"It's a good idea,
and it'll work if people are
honest enough. I would
definitely use it if they are left
in convenient spots."

Jody Schwartz, Art freshman:
"I don't think it'll work.
They'll slowly disappear.
The weather will damage
them and they'll get stolen.
I'm at the art school all the
time, so I don't need it. It's not
that good of an idea."

Andy Samosiuk, Ar-
chitecture junior: "It's a good
idea. There's a lot of people
around who don't have bikes.
If it does work, it'll be like a
one-way bus system."

Guy Willey, LSA sophomore:
"I thought it was a joke at fir-
st. I saw the stickers and
thought it was funny. Then
someone told me that they
were real and you were sup-
posed to ride them. It has a
possibility of working; it
depends on whether people
take it seriously or not. There
are many times I could've
used one."

Bill McClelland, SNR senior:
"I think it's a great idea. I've
heard of other places where it
works, but I don't have a lot of
confidence that people will
follow the rules. I've already
seen people take them home
overnight. I used one already
from the UGLI to Tice's. It
was a shitty bike, but it rode.


Angus Jeang, Engineering
Grad student: "It may work.
Sometimes, in an emergency,
it could be very useful. Also
it's very hard to find parking,
so cars are inconvenient."

Omar Davidson, Art fresh-
man: "I think it's cool and it's
going to work. I'm going to use

Erika Ayala, Art freshman:
"I think it's a good idea. I
don't think anyone will steal
them, especially since they're
green. It's great because you
don't have to worry about
maintaining it or locking it, so
there's no responsibility."

Renee Greigorian, Art senior:
"I think it's a wonderful idea,
but perhaps idealistic. There
are a lot of dishonest people
who will see a bike there and
they'll take it home, paint it a
different color and add it to
their own personal property."

Julie Gendich, LSA freshman:
"I don't think it will work.
They'll probably get stolen. I
walk everywhere, so I don't
need it. I think it's a little
naive. I don't see why we need
them; if someone wants a bike,
they can bring their own."

United Press international reports
Midland nuclear power plant
still salvageable, says Bechtel
LANSING-The Bechtel Power Corp., the prime contractor on Consumers
Power Co.'s defunct Midland nuclear plant, said yesterday the project
should be conpleted as either a nuclear or coal-fired facility.
However, officials were vague about how a resumption of work would be
financed, and Public Service Commission Chief of Staff Roger Fischer later
said Consumers itself should have nothing to do with any new work at the
During an appearance before a special house committee studying the
financially struggling Consumers, a Bechtel vice president, William Henry,
said completing the Midland Project "should not be dismissed entirely or
mandated away."
Henry said the impediments to finishing it as a nuclear plant "can be
overcome if it is the will of the utility, the regulators, the governmental sec-
tor and an informed public."
Botha calls for end to violence
JOHANNESBURG, South -Africa-President P.W. Botha asked the op-
position yesterday to join in negotiating with blacks for an end to the racial
violence that has claimed more than 300 lives since August. "I am pleading
for a national team effort," he said.
Extra police patrolled a white area whre Erasmus Jacobs, 19, was repor-
ted doused with kerosene and set afire by blacks Thursday night. Jacobs, an
unemployed auto mechanic, was hospitalized with severe burns over 90 per-
cent of his body.
A police spokesman reported no serious violence yesterday but said there
were some brief clashes with blacks in the huge Soweto ghetto outside
Johannesburg. He would not let his name be used, in keeping with a new
policy of the white-minority government.
The spokesman said police searched the black township of Langa for
suspects in the burning. The township, outside the town of Uitenhage near
Port Elizabeth, lies next to the white neighborhood and is the site of a police
shooting March 21 in which 20 blacks were killed.
A government inquiry into the March shooting heard testimony yesterday
that as many as 43 people may have been killed. On Thursday, autopsy
reports on 20 victims were submitted to the commission. Before that, police
had said 19 blacks died.
Hart forms 'new ideas' think tank
WASHINGTON-Sen. Gary Hart, who campaigned for president last year
as the candidate of new ideas, is forming an issues-oriented think tank that
could reinforce that image in advance of the 1988 campaign.
Many people who supported the Colorado Democrat's 1984 presidental
campaign are being asked to contribute $25,000 each and become founders of
the Center for New Democracy.
Former Rep. Martha Keys of Kansas will be executive director of the cen-
ter and she said Hart would be chairman of the board. She said the center
would operate on an annual budget of around $350,000. Formal announ-
cement of its establishment will occur next month.
While the center undoubtedly will reinforce Hart's image as a politician
trying to lead the nation to new solutions for probelms, Keys emphasized
that it will not function as a political committee for him.
"It certainly will be of benefit to him," she said, but its research and
seminars will be open to everyone.
Landing damages space shuttle
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla-Discovery's hard-luck journey ended Friday
with a thumping touchdown, a blown tire, damage to the ship, a less-than-
steady Sen. Jake Garn and a satellite drifting in useless orbit, but NASA
termed the flight "truly a remarkable mission."
When the shuttle's crew stepped down the boarding ramp, Garn gripped
the side railing and was helped to a van by a NASA official. Less than four
horus later, however, Garn danced a little jig for photographers and said he
felt "Great. Great."
"After being in zero-G weighlessness for seven days, all this weight is a lit-
tle big heavy," Garn said, kicking up his heels.
"But it's all back. See?"
"I've never had a more fantastic experience," said Garn as he and the
other crew member left Florida on a plane for Houston. He said that as he
watched two other crewmen walking in space Tuesday "I had to turn and
say, 'Is this really happening? Am I seeing this?'-even though I was there,
on the spot."
USSR builds new spy base
outside Nicaraguan capital
WASHINGTON-A new administration report says military installations
being constructed in Nicaragua would enable the Soviet Union to significan-
tly expand its intelligence-gathering activities in the Western Hemisphere.
According to the report, a new airfield under construction at Punta Huete
outside Managua would permit Soviet reconnaissance planes to fly missions
along the U.S. Pacific Coast just as they now operate along the Atlantic
Coast form bases in Cuba.
The report was prepared by the State and Defense departments. Its
release was timed to have an impact on the congressional debate over the
administration's bid for a resumption of assistance to Nicaraguan resistan-
ce fighters. House and Senate votes are expected next week.
According to the report, titled "The Sandinista Military Buildup,"
Nicaragua has given high priority to completing the facility at Punta Huete.

Former Bursley council vice president arrested

(Continued from Page 1)
overriden by the BOG treasurer, a staff
liason, and the building director,
how ever. They gave the case to the Ann
Arbor Police Department for in-
THE POLICE then gave the case to
the city prosecutor's office. Marlyn

Eisenbraun, an assistant city
prosecutor, initially decided not to press
criminal charges on the basis of the
board's original decision.
But then the board discovered its plan
to switch from civil to criminal prosec-
ution was illegal. Eisenbraun reopened
the case, and decided to prosecute, but

she would not say why the office
changed its mind.
Whether or not the board will recover
the embezzled money is uncertain, said
Scott Siler, treasurer of the Board. He
added that it depends on the judge's
decision at the time of the trial.

Commenting on the incident, Jarvis
Tou, former BOG governor, said "it
was kept very quiet in Bursley...a lot of
people still don't know about it. I think
Bursley should tell everyone what hap-

The program has no tenured faculty,
so the instructors will either be
relocated within the University or
helped to find other positions outside
the University, according to the regen-
ts' resolution.
Most of the six instructors affected by
the termination also work for Univer-
sity Hospitals, according to Gluck.
MEDICAL technologists are in
charge of diagnostic testing of blood,
urine, and other body fluids. These
tasks are being replaced increasingly
with automation. Indeed, one of the
reasons for the termination was that
"the future of the entire profession ap-
pears to be in jeopardy," according to
the regents' resolution.
Gluck acknowledged that there may
soon be a lower demand for medical
technologists, but said the high quality

of the program justifies its existence.
"In one sense, the job market is dim,"
she said, "but we have never had a
student who hasn't found a job."
The resolution to discontinue the
program acknowledged its high
quality, but said "it is not a core unit of
this University."
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline)
said he regrets having to cut the
program. "It's not easy to discontinue a
high quality program," he said. He ad-
ded, however, that "we can't continue
to be everything to everybody" given
the University's tight budget.
Regent Paul Brown (D-Petoskey)
said he hopes the 10 freshmen in-
terested in the program can be accom-
modated. "When it (the issue) comes
back next month, I hope the answer is
not, 'There's nothing we can do,' " he

week, could apply even more pressure
to the University of California ad-
UNIVERSITY administrators, off
work because of spring break, were
unavailable for comment.
And though most of the campus
population had left for the break, a cr-
owd of 150 which included townspeople
and high school students as well as
university students, slept out on the
steps of Sproul Hall, the admistration
building, Thursday night.
All but one of the 159 protesters
arrested in the last week at Berkeley
have been released on their own
recognizance. Ethan Willard, a 23-year-
old Berkeley resident, remains in jail
because he refused to . sign an
agreement to "be of good conduct and
obey all laws until the court
WILLARD objected to the agreement
"on moral grounds," said Marcel Cote,

Willard is conducting a hunger strike
in his jail cell, though he has not made
his demands public.
Ann Deleon, who heads a team of
lawyers representing the protesters,
assumes Willard's demands are the
same as five other protesters who are
Those five others say they will con-
tinue to starve themselves until the
university administration either holds a
public hearing to give students input in-
to a treasurer's report to be submitted
to the regents on May 16; that the
regents discuss divestment at their
May meeting; and that the charges
against the protesters be dropped.
But one of the five protesters has
gone beyond those demands to also ask
that the United Nations suspend
representation in its assembly to all
countries that conduct business in
South Africa. That hunger striker,
Oliver Nicholson, "tends to be a little
rhetorical," Cote said.
