In an effort to increase student in-
put on campus, minority leaders hope
to appoint students to a University
minority concerns council.
As a liaison to the affirmative
action office, the Council for Minority
Concerns, composed of faculty and
staff representatives from throughout
the University, is designed to "make
an extra effort to reach out to the
community," said Carlos Acevedo,
financial aid officer and chairman of
the council's steering committee.
THE COUNCIL wants to make its
policies more "proactive rather than
reactive," he said yesterday at the
Since its establishment in 1977 the
council has aided in the creation of
Niara Sudarkasa's position as assist-
ant vice president, submitted recom-
mendations for recruitment and
retention, and explored ways to
enhance the environment for minority
students on campus.
According to Acevedo, the short
term goals of the council are to in-
crease participation in Sudarkasa's
role, aid in recruitment and retention
efforts, and reduce racism on
Although there is presently no
mechanism for official student par-
ticipation, a move to create at least
four student positions representing
each underrepresented minority
group was supported by everyone at
Whether to get nominations for this
committee from the Michigan Student
Assembly, through individual ethnic
groups themselves, or through
student elections is an issue that the
council has yet to resolve.

Hurricane Kate batters Cuba
KEY WEST, Fla. - Hurricane Kate pounded Cuba with 115 mph winds
yesterday forcing the evacuation of 300,000 people, while squalls toppled
power lines in this island city were residents huddled in shuttered homes
and busy bars.
The late-season storm hit Havana about 1:30 p.m. EST, two hours
earlier than expected, and knocked out telephones, electricity, TV tran-
smissions and gas, according to Prensa Latina, the official news agency.
Kate also whipped Key West with 105-mph winds and later moved into
the Gulf of Mexico where it aimed at the U.S. Gulf Coast and was expec-
ted to strengthen over the open water.
"Kate could still be with us several days." said National Hurricane
Center forecaster Mark Zimmer.
"It's important for people on the Gulf Coast not to let their guard
down," he said. "People are thinking about things like Thanksgiving and
it's hard to make them think about a hurricane. But this can still be a
In the Keys, the storm caused sporadic outages of electricity as it
knocked down dozens of power lines, snapped tree limbs and palm fronds
and submerged roadways. No injuries were reported.
Economy grows 4.3 percent
WASHINGTON - u.s. economic growth spurte upward at a sur-
prisingly rapid 4.3 percent annual rate from July through September, the
fastest pace in more than a year, the government reported yesterday.
While the Reagan administration hailed the increase as a significant
acceleration" in economic activity, private economists were not as im-
pressed, contending that the added growth during the summer may well
subtract from activity in coming months.
The Commerce Department said the gross national product - the total
output of goods and services - grew at the fastest rate since a 7.1 percent
increase in the second quarter of $984.
This new estimate was a full percentage point above a 3.3 percent
government projection made last month. While the gain was far above
what most analysts had expected, they stressed use of caution in inter-
preting the figure.
"no one should be fooled," said Allen Sinai, chief economist for Shear-
son Lehman Brothers. "There is little meaningful growth going on the
the economy at the present time and little room for optimism that we
have a lasting rebound under way."
Panel back apartheid reforms
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - An economic government commit-
tee that advises President Pieter Botha yesterday recommended the
abolition of racial segregation laws that are considered pillars of the
The economic committee of the President's Council - established in
1980 to advise the president'on political and economic policy - recom-
mended the abolition of racial segregation laws that discriminate against
Other committees of the President's Council also have urged the repeal
of race laws that help make the government's policy of racial
segregation, known as apartheid. The government is not obliged to ac-
cept the advice.
In Durban, seven blacks were killed in tribal warfare between the
Zulus and Pondos, authorities said.
And Police said they arrested 29 blacks for racial violence Tuesday
night and yesterday in scattered incidents across South Africa.
Rescuers continue quake relief
BOGOTA, Colombia - Rescuers still searched the remains of Armero
yesterday' but burial squads moved in, gouging long trenches in the
volcanic mud with back hoes and dumping truckloads of bodies into them.
Soldiers acting on orders from health officials slogged through the
muck with small cans of gasoline, dousing decaying bodies and setting
them afire, shooting animals that had been feeding off the corpses. The
men wore masks agaisnt the stench.
Residents who had fled began returning to Marquita, nine miles to the
north, and other towns that escaped major damage from the mud avalan-
che that flowed into the Andes valley Nov. 13 after the eruption of the
Nevado del Ruiz volcano.
A 15-foot-deep lake of mud buried Armero and parts of other towns
below the volcano. At least 25,000 people were killed.
The mayor's office in Mariquita, where the small hospital became an
emergency clinic, said about 15,000 people had returned. Scientists
monitoring the volcano cautioned against complacency.
More Americans opt for cities
WASHINGTON - The nation's urban areas are growing faster than the
countryside in this decade, reversing the "rural renaissance" trend of
population growth in the 1970s, the Census Bureau reported yesterday.
The metropolitan population grew by 4.5 percent to 180 million people
between 1980 and 1984, while the number of non-metropolitan residents
increased by 3.4 percent to 56.4 million, an agency study found.
While metropolitan areas continued to grow at the 1 percent annual
rate that prevailed in the 1970s, the non-metropolitan growth rate fell
from 1.3 percent annually in the last decade to about 0.8 percent a year
"This apparently restores a pattern of predominantly metropolitan
population growth which had extended for more than a century until the
dramatic turnaround of the 1970s," said the new report, "Patterns of Met -
ropolitan Area and County Population Growth."
That 1970s pattern has been widely discussed as a rural renaissance,
with Americans moving to the countryside in search of a new lifestyle.
"What this (new report) suggests is not a total halt, but it has definitely
slowed down," said Donald Starsinic, a Census Bureau statistician.
