on strike
DETROIT - With more than 80,000
workers on the picket lines, weary
negotiators for Chrysler Corp. and the
United Auto Workers returned to the
bargaining table yesterday in both the
United States and Canada.
UAW President Owen Bieber said
many tough issues remained to be
resolved in talks covering 70,000 U.S.
workers at Chrysler plants in 46
facilities in 15 states.
"THERE ARE some tough friction

tion points, there are some boulders."

strikers, returned to Chrysler

School Board plan
upsets 'U' parents

Much to some parent's disappointment, children of
some University students may attend a different elemen-
tary school beginning with the 1986-87 school year.
As of 9:30 p.m. last night, the Ann Arbor Board of
Education remained undecided on a proposal that would
require the children of University students living at the
Northwood housing complex on North Campus to attend
Northside Elementary School.
THE CHILDREN now attend Logan Elementary, a
school that specializes in dealing with children who speak
little or no English.
"The Board considers Northside one of the worst
schools in the district," said Chuck Davis, a graduate
student of Biostatistics who has two children currently at-
tending Logan.
Davis fears his children who only now have adjusted
from their family's move to the University may have
trouble readjusting to a new school.
REUVEN KATZ, another resident of Northwood V, ex-
presses his frustration at his inability to act on this issue:

"Some of us come from a different country and don't pay
taxes, so we cannot vote. We're easy to move around."
"No other school is equipped to deal with children who
speak no English," says Leah Waks, a graduate student in
communications. She said that her son spoke no English
two years ago but is learning in an atmosphere where no
one will make fun of him.
This proposal, however, is only one part of the Boards
proposed long range plan that may reorganize the entire
school district by enlarging or closing some of the existing
schools. Children going to Logan would move to Northside
to accommodate children coming in from a closing school.
EUNICE ROYSTER, President of the Board, cites a
$1.6 million deficit as the cause of the reorganization. She
adds, "We're trying to accommodate the students by ad-
ding a grandfather clause allowing the children of parents
graduating in '87 to remain at Logan."
"There is a need to extend the excellence of the Ann Ar-
bor school system to more students, says Superintendent
Richard Benjamin.
But Katz feels that by solving this need the Board of
Education is just creating problems.

He said the same applied for the
University's research guidelines, also
adopted in 1972. In August the regents
ordered University administrators to
review these guidelines. Baker also
pointed out that the regents recently
voted to revise its bylaws, changing
every reference to man to person.
Baker also defended a reolution
passed by the regents last month,
supporting researchers in the Univer-
sity who choose to do research related
to President Reagan's controversial
Strategic Defense Initiative.
BAKER, WHO has opposed the
University's involvement in politics,
said the resolution was not a political
stand because university researchers
should be able to pick any topic for
study, whether or not the public appr-
approves of such research.
He said the resolution was needed
because of pressure applied on
researchers not to take part in the
controversial research.
On a less controversial issue, Baker
said that it is realistic for the Univer-
sity to compete with better funded
schools as Harvard and Berkeley,
though students would probably have
to face the brunt of the economic bur-

Education about the history and
origins of apartheid and its resistance
is another focus of the program.
Carole Burkhardt, the University of
Michigan Fitness Research Center's
director of testing, said the stress test
administered by the center, a per-
son's heart rate and other vital signs
are measured while running on a
treadmill or peddling on an exercise
bike. In addition, the life analysis
questionnaire is filled out in conjun-
ction with corporate health care
promotions and is not used in fitness
testing. An article in yesterday's

At Tuesday night's meeting, the
Michigan Student Assembly voted to
endorse a state House bill calling for
the State of Michigan Public Em-
ployees Retirement System to divest
of stocks it holds in companies doing
business in South Africa. An article in
yesterday's Daily incorrectly repor-
ted this information.

"From all the stories in the news,
people have gotten glimpses, but they
don't have a sense of background and
dynamics of the resistance
movement," said Ransby.
Tonight's program includes a film
about the history of the struggle
against apartheid in South Africa
called "Generations of Resistance."
This 1980 film goes beyond just
providing information about the apar-

theid system to show "blacks as
makers of their own history," said
