Ann Arbor wil get to sing its own
version of "Feed the World" Saturday
when the Public Interest Research
Group in Michigan launches its Ann
Arbor Aid for Africa benefit concert
at the Michigan Theater.
From noon tomidnight all are in-
vited to come see some of Ann Arbor's
hottest bands, as well as an assor-
tment of other musical and comedic
performers from the area.
THE BENEFIT, or "Rock Aid" as
it has been dubbed, is part of the

Hunger. Groups similar to PIRGIM
across the country have united to join
in on the project, and PIRGIM's par-
ticipation has placed the University in
a national competition with other
campuses to raise funds for the
master USA for Africa drive. The
campus which raises the most money
will receive special recognition from
the United Nations.
Featured as part of Saturday's
event is local powerhouse/recording
artists Map of the World, the unique

Color, and partying faves the Ur-
bations and the Whatusies. Also slated
to appear will be the local legend
Peter "Madcat" Ruth, the reggae
band Modesa (Kingbe), newcomers
Entropy, and The Bandits. Grand
Rapids' Invisible Ink will also be
joining the festivities.
Most of the big musical acts will be
performing sometime during the
evening hours, but according to Steve
Johnson, PIRGIM's student organizer
of the event, "it could run into the wee

many great bands that it's probably
going to go on a little longer." There
will also be a "surprise" musical
guest.
CHICAGO'S Lou Schneider and
Detroit native Dave Soarn will be ad-
ding a touch of humor between the
music, and the show will be hosted by.
Craig Bordeaux of WIQB. Campus
station WCBN will be taping the per
formances, and Access Productions
will be video taping so that the event
may be shown at a later date.

tee, which is made up of deans and
department heads, will have to decide
whether or not the course's credit could
be used to fulfill the college's
junior/senior seminar requirement.
"This is the first time a course like
this has been proposed (in
engineering), said Castle. "Dentistry,
medicine and law all have ethics
requirements . . ." he continued.
So far, the proposed class is
meeting little engineering school
faculty opposition.
The engineering curriculum com-
mittee last week unanimously ap-
proved a proposal presented by the
engineering ethics committee - a
subcommittee of the school's student
government.
THE COURSE proposal will be
reviewed by the engineering school's
standing committee, a panel com-
posed of school deans and department
heads, on Nov. 25. The engineering
faculty will have the final word on
Dec.3.
Engineering prof. Henryk
Skolimowski, whose book Technology
and Human Destiny would be used in
the course, said the course should give
engineers a "minimal awareness of
what they are doing."
"(Engineers) are socially and
morally illiterate. They are the
primary agents of social change and
need to be more socially literate," he
said.
"POLITICIANS, priests, and
engineers: we all share the same
world and the same responsibility,"
Skolimowski said. "Since engineers
are remodeling the world, they need

college considers ethics course

to be more responsible than others."
Skolimowski is expected to appear
before the college's curriculum com-
mittee Nov. 21 to discuss whether or
not the course should be a required
course.
According to Castle, if the course is
indeed a requirement, it probably
won't become mandatory for at least
three years.
CHARLES VEST, associate dean of
engineeringhsaid that "engineers
need to think more about the
ramifications of their work," but heis
"not sure what the best mechanism
for that is. I think it's encouraging
Correction
Doubling the number of freshmen
applications from black students is
one strategy Niara Sudarkasa,
associate vice president for
academic affairs, has for doubling
black enrollment. In 1985, she
promised to double black enrollment
in three to five years. Her strategy
was incorrectly reported in yester-
day's Daily.

that the initiative came from the
students themselves."
But not allsstudents support the
proposal.
One student questioned the idea of
an engineering ethics course. "Our
ethics are fine. What failing do you
see?" said engineering senior James
Covert. He added that engineers don't
have the time to take such a course.

Another student felt the course was
needed.
"All I know," said one engineering
sophomore who asked not to be iden-'
tified, "is that engineers couldn't be!
all that moral since sometimes they'
don't even follow the honor code." Hex
asked not to be identitfied because not'
reporting violations of the code is it-
self a violation.
