"Do you feel you are getting your money's worth with a U
of M education?"
Ivan Sanchez, LSA junior:
Yes. When you come to think
of all the things you learn
here, it's worth it.
Julia Hoard, RC sophomore:
Yes. Because I take advan-
tage of the facilities such as
CCRB, dance, and ice
Joel Daughtry, mathematics
graduate student: I feel that
the quality of the math
department is among the top
in America. Max Reed is
running a secure ship. The
faculty in pure and applied
math is efficient.
David Wolfe, business school
senior: I think it's overrated.
You can get as good an
education at any other four-
year school. The business
school is one of the most
overrated in the United

impresses people. I'm not

graduate student: For out-

however, it is becoming a
better and better buy all the
Dave Tao, LSA sophomore:
Yes. As far as the education
and all the possibilities it of-

Evelyn Karstensen, law

year, so yes, I think so.
Ricardo Meyerhoff, MBA
student: Yes, it's worth it.
It's a good investment.

Police commissioner resigns
PHILADELPHIA - The city's police commissioner announced his
resignation yesterday, exactly six months after directing his depar-
tment's disastrous attempt to evict members of the radical MOVE cult
from their fortified row house.
Commissioner Gregore Sambor, 57, told more than 200 officers at a
meeting that he had sent a letter to Mayor Wilson Goode saying he would
relinquish his duties Nov. 30. He made no reference to the MOVE confron-
"There will be many who will second-guess this decision, and many
who will deny that it is mine, but the simple truth of the matter is that it is
time," Sambor told the officers, who gave him a standing ovation when
he arrived at the Police Academy.
Sambor, who said two months ago he had no intention of quitting, was
contradicted by Goode in testimony before a special commission in-
vestigating the May 13 MOVE tragedy, in which 11 members of the cult
were killed and 61 houses were destroyed by a fire started by a police
bomb, dropped to break up a rooftop bunker.
Goode testified that he had been misled and disobeyed by his subor-
dinates. The mayor's representative on the scene, then Managing Direc-
tor Leo Brooks, resigned this summer, citing personal reasons.
Sambor's 23 months as commissioner were tainted by two widely
criticized police operations.
Search copters stay grounded
YAKIMA, Wash. - The state grounded its helicopters yesterday, ham-
pering a search team's efforts to fine 100 stranded elk hunters believed
stranded by snow in the bitterly cold Cascade Mountains, where two have
Col. Bill Watling said the state Department of Emergency
Management decided, after consultations with the National Guard at
Camp Murray, to put its air operation "on hold" until there was a
"We've got a couple of crews standing by and ready to go if there is an
emergency," Watling said.
Sgt. Ken Irwin of the Yakima County sheriff's department said his
crews wanted assistance from the National Guard helicopters for a third
day because "we would like to go in and identify anybody stranded in
this deep, deep snow. . . before they run out of food and there is a dire
"If there is even one out there we can't get to because of the difference of
philosophy, it would be terrible."
The helicopter crews on Monday and Tuesday lifted 45 stranded hun-
ters from the east slopes of the Cascades, where more than 4 feet of snow
fell over the weekend.
Envoy sees hope for
release of U.S. hostages
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A special envoy sent by the archbishop of Canter-
bury to negotiate the release of American hostages held by Shiite Moslem
extremists said last night he saw a "real opportunity for a
"I see some hope," said the envoy, Terry Waite, who successfully
negotiated the release of Britons held in Iran and Libya.
"The fact that I'm here does indicate there's a possibility (of freeing
the hostages)," said Waite. "There is a real opportunity for a
Waite, a special advisor to Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie,
the spiritual head of the Church of England, said after arriving from Lon-
don that he was "here on humanitarian grounds because I want to see a
resoltion to this problem .. .
voucher plan for education
WASHINGTON - The administration, urging a major change in school
aid for poor children, yesterday proposed a federal voucher program like
food stamps to let parents buy education services at public or private
Under the proposal outlined by Education Secretary William Bennett,
who has promoted the idea for several months, parents of about 4.8
million disadvantaged children grades 1-12 could be eligible for the
vouchers, worth an average of $600 a year.
The proposal, which would shift about $3 billion already spent on such
aid into the new program, must win congressional approval and its fate
on Capitol Hill is uncertain. Some critics say the plan is a bid to provide
government aid to church-related schools, while others warn it could un-
dercut public school systems.
Dual roles cause depression
BOSTON - Nearly half the employees interviewed in a study say the
main reason they get depressed Lt work is the strain of holding a job and
raising a family at the same time.
The Boston University study, released yesterday and considered the
first of its kind in the country, also found that one-third of working paren-
ts spent part of the day worrying a great deal about their kids.
"The world isn't set up to have two parents at work," said Bradley
Googins, an assistant professor of community organization, management
and planning at Boston Unversity's School of Social Work. "It is a
struggle. From our data, it's something that does impact most families."
The researchers also concluded that individual employees have done
everything they can to improve the strain of holding a job and raising a
family, and said it was now up to corporations to help solve the problem.
The Boston University study found that working mothers, especially if
they are married, bear the brunt of juggling career and family.
