Constitutional changes approved
Students reject computer fee
By JERRY MARKON
With approximately 26 percent of
the vote counted in the Michigan
Student Assembly's special election
last night, it appeared that the student
body had strongly supported changes
in the MSA Constitution and disap-
proved of the University's controver-
sial computer fee.
According to Bruce Belcher, a
representative from Rackham who
helped count ballots, 524 of the 654
students recorded as of late last night
had approved of MSA's constitutional
changes, which will revise the assem-
bly's existing committee and
UNDER THE new constitutional
plan, MSA will hold two elections each
year - as compared to one in the
present system - to facilitate
training and to insure that at least
some representatives always have
The assembly also received ap-
proval for increasing the number of
assembly representatives by about 25
percent, a move MSA leaders have
said will allow them to work and con-
tact their constituents more efficien-
According to Belcher, 522 out of the
759 ballots counted as of late last night
had rejected the University's fee for
increased computer services.
Although over 2000 ballots in LSA
had yet to be counted, students in
other schools and colleges had over-
whelmingly voiced support for
student input to Universityscomputer
policy, with 687 out of 767 supporting
The Board of Regents approved last
September the plan to charge studen-
ts $50 next term and $100 each term
thereafter for expanded computer
services on campus. some students,
including MSA representatives, have
criticized the plan, saying the regent's
decision was arrived at without suf-
ficient student input.
The assembly's special election was
held in conjunction with LSA Student
Government elections yesterday and
Monday. The ballot also asked
students whether they supported the
University's computer fee, and sought
their feelings about student input in
University computer policy.

"In order to continue the battle and
not endanger our planes, we were for-
ced to stage a short battle with them
across the border," Lapidot said.
He said the Israeli F-15s were six
miles from Syria's border when the
battle began, but the Syrian fighters
had air-to-air missiles with twice that
range and could threaten Israeli
planes without leaving their own air
In the last incident - on May 25
1983 - Syrian warplanes fired air-to-air
missiles at Israeli jets over Lebanon.
No hits were reported by the Israelis.

would retaliate. It said he made the

BERLIN (AP) - A West Berlin art
expert said yesterday that the "The
Man with the Golden Helmet,"
believed for centuries to be the work
of Rembrandt, probably was painted
by one of the Dutch master's students.
The latest brochure from the
Kaiser - Friedrich Museum, which
owns West Berlin's most famous pain-
ting, lists it as the work of an
"unknown artist" from the Rembran-

specialist in Dutch paintings, said
"The Man with the Golden
Helmet" probably was painted by one
of Rembrandt's students in about
IT WAS PAINTED with very thick
layers, almost like a relief work,
Kelch said, and Rembrandt never
used that method.
One difference is that the painting
does not appear to focus on the man as
its subject, he said. It depicts an
elderly man in armor, wearing a
feathered golden helmet, against a
"The master always had people as
the central motif, while this painting
seems to be focusing on the armor,"
said Kelch, who in recent years has
restored "The Man with the Golden
Helmet" and others of West Berlin's
best-known art works.
Doubts about the painting's origin
were raised first in July by a Dutch
