'M Illioisstruggle to 3=3 tie

By CHRISTY RIEDEL
Boosted by the largest number of
black freshmen since 1978, black
enrollment at the University is up
slightly this year, rising from 5.1 per-
cent of the student body to 5.2 percent.
The 24-student increase in black
enrollment is part of an overall in-
crease in minority enrollment from
last year's 11.3 percent to 12 percent,
the highest percentage ever recorded
at the University.
"I'm happy because it shows the
University is making some steps in
the right direction," said Lawrence
Norris, chairman of the Michigan
Student Assembly's minority affairs
committee. "We still have a long way
to go, though," he added.
Hispanic enrollment rose by 24 st-
udents, and now accounts for 1.8 per-
cent of the student body. A 16-student
increase in American Indian, students
brought their representation to 0.5
percent.
ASIAN Americans, the only
minority group that the University
does not consider to be un-
derrepresented, saw the largest in-
crease, climbing to 4.5 percent of the
student body.
A total of 3,729 minority students
now attend the University.
"I was pleased with the increase
overall, but we're really just begin-
ning to make an inroad on the black
enrollment situation," said Niara
Sudarkasa, associate University vice
president for academic affairs.
ACCORDING to a University press
release, LSA, the College of
Engineering, and the School of Social
Work saw -the most significant in-
creases in minority enrollment.
Although Graduate and professional
student enrollment increased in

Rackham by 20 students this year,
black students decreased by 13
students and Hispanic enrollment fell
by four students. George Jones,
associate dean of Rackham, said in
the release however, that he was
looking for a .reversal of that trend
next year, when he expects to see in-
creases in all minority groups.
Sudarkasa said that, other than a 10
percent goal set for black enrollment
in 1970, the University has not set any
concrete goals for minority
enrollment until last March. At that
time, she and Vice President for
Academic Affairs and Provost Billy
Frye announced that the University
would attempt to double black
enrollment in three to five years.
Last winter, the University ap-
proved initiatives formulafed by Frye
and Sudarkasa to reach that goal.
Those measures included increased
student and alumni involvement in
minority recruitment and a five-year
$1.4 million increase in financial aid
programs for minorities.
ACCORDING to an official in the
vice president's office, those funds
have gone toward expanding the
Michigan Achievement Award and
the Michigan Opportunity Grant and
establishing the Michigan Incentive
Grant. All three programs are finan-
cial aid awards for underrepresented
minority students.
Monique Washington, assistant
director of undergraduate admissions
and coordinator of undergraduate
minority recruitment programs, said
that increases in minority enrollment
are the result of several years worth
of effort.
Washington said that getting all
levels of the University involved in

CHAMPAIGN-It was a black day for the
Whites on Saturday.
First and foremost, for Illinois placekicker
Chris White, whose 37-yard field goal attempt
with four seconds left failed when Michigan's
Dieter Heren tipped the ball, causing it to flutter
towards the goalposts and bounce back off the
crossbar, leaving the final score at 3-3.
SECOND, for Chris' father, Illinois head coach
Mike White, who said he was "devastated" after
c1e tie, which eliminated Illinois from the Rose
Bowl picture.
Finally, for Michigan fullback Gerald White.
White ran brilliantly in the fourth quarter in
place of an injured Jamie Morris, gaining 75
yards for the game and picking up a key first

down on a third-and-seven play from the Illini 34
on Michigan's impressive final drive. That drive
ended, however, when White was hit hard and
fumbled at the nine-yard line. Illinois' Bob
Sebring recovered, and with 5:31 left, the
Fighting Illini started the drive that would eat up
the clock and reach the Michigan 20 before
Heren's heroics.
It was a day for the defenses, a day of hard hits
and big plays. Strange plays such as two fake
punts, an option pass from Gerald White, and a
classic Bo Schembechler tirade at an official's
call spiced things up, but after four quarters of
head-knocking, the game came down to a field
goal just as it did two weeks ago at Iowa.
"IT WAS A good snap and I thought I kicked it
well," said Chris White. "I didn't see it get tip-

ped, but I heard it. I looked up in time to see it
hit the crossbar.
"I think if the ball gets tipped and still hits the
crossbar, (I) must have got a lot into it. It might
have been my fault, I might have kicked it too
low. I hope not but it doesn't matter."
Heren said his left ring finger was still tingling
after the game.
"IT (THE BALL) HIT just from the first
knuckle up," he said. "I just got enough of it.
"I got a little excited when I tipped it, then I
realized the ball was still going up and said 'Oh
no!' when I saw it was still going towards the
goalposts. My heart jumped when it bounced off
the crossbar.

Reagan seeks
investigation
into CIA leak
WASHINGTON (UPI)-President Reagan
demanding "appropriate action" against the
leak of classified information, ordered an in-
vestigation yesterday into the unauthorized
disclosure of a secret CIA plan to undermine and
topple the Libyan regime of Col. Moammar
Khadafy.
The White House, in an unusual step, announ-
ced the investigation of disclosures published
yesterday by The Washington Post.
THE Post reported that Reagan, with the sup-
port of Secretary of State George Shultz and CIA
director William Casey, authorized a covert plan
to thwart Libyan support for terrorism and sub-
version and lure Khadafy into a situation that
would give his opponents in the Libyan military a
chance to seize power or provide one of his U.S.-
backed neighbors with justification for a
military response.
The newspaper also reported "initial resistan-
ce" from the two top members of the Senate In-
telligence Committee, who wrote Reagan that
the covert operation might conflict with an
executive order signed by Reagan that prohibits
direct or indirect U.S. involvement in
assassination plots.
Insisting the administration would have no
substantive comment on "alleged intelligence
activity," White House spokesman Bill Hart said
Reagan in general "is very concerned over the
unauthorized disclosure of intelligence and
classified information."

Shapiro opens
house;groups
hoklforum
By JILL OSEROWSKY
Some came to shake the president's hand.
Some came to snoop about the white presidential
house. Others came to deliver a list of issues they
want their administration to address.
Whatever their purpose, about 600 students
filed into University's President Harold
Shapiro's house on South University Friday af-
ternoon during an open house.
BEFORE THE PRESIDENT and his wife
opened their doors, however, about 75 students
gathered on the Shapiro's front lawn to listen to
Paul Josephson, president of the Michigan
Student Assembly, and speakers representing
Campus Against Weapons in Space, MSA's
Student Rights Committee, No Code, and
protesters arrested during the CIA's campus
visit last month.
"What rights do we have to protest and voice
our opinions?" Marian Milbauer, an LSA senior,
who was arrested during the CIA protests, asked
Shapiro during the forum.
Shapiro responded, "I'm not here to debate."
Ed Kraus, chairperson of MSA's Student
Right's Committee, called upon Shapiro to grant
more time to the University Council, a group
supposed to present Shaprio with tangible
evidence that it is making progress on
suggestions concerning the code for non-
academic conduct, before taking his own version
to the Regents.

Students stand in line to meet President and Mrs. Shapiro at their annual open house on Friday. The event, which
attracted about 600 students, was preceded by speakers who questioned the administration's stance on the proposed
code for non-academic conduct, 'Star Wars' research, and other campus issues.
