The Michigan Student Assembly's
vice president and black student:
researcher have stepped down from
their posts because of time commit-'
ments away from the assembly.
Black student researcher Roderick
Linzie said his resignation also stem-
med from his belief that "it was
becoming increasingly difficult to.
hold MSA leaders to their commit-
ments to increase involvement of
minority students and women in the'
decision-making process of MSA."
THE graduate student in
sociology added that he agreed to rec
onsider his resignation, submitted
last Thursday, after MSA President
Paul Josephson assured him input
from minority students would be
solicited before selecting a new vice
president, and that minority issues
will be a priority for the assembly.
Although Linzie expects his
workload to be equally heavy, next
term, he said, "In all probability, I'll
be coming back in January. I'm cer-
tain of MSA's commitment to the
position of minority researcher."
Micky Feusse, an LSA junior, said
she resigned Sunday because she found
herself torn between time commit-
ments as the assembly's vice
president and as a resident fellow in
FEUSSE SAID she originally had
planned to work 20 hours a week for
the assembly, and another 20 at East
Quad, but "didn't realize they wanted
me to spend 40 hours a week at MSA
"I thought it was a little
ludicrous," she said, "there was just
no way to negotiate down the hours."
"It's very simple, really. "It

WASHINGTON - President Reagan, bowing to
political pressure, imposed limited economic sanctions
"aimed against the machinery of apartheid" in South
Africa yesterday and temporarily averted a damaging
defeat in Congress.
In the order, signed in the Oval Office during a
nationally broadcast ceremony, Reagan proposed to ban
importation of the Krugerrand, South Africa's gold coin,
subject to consultations with America's major trading
partners. He directed Treasury Secretary James A.
Baker III to study the feasibility of minting an American
gold coin for sale to investors and collectors.
REAGAN'S order would also prohibit U.S. banks from
lending money to the South African government unless
the funds are used to help the disenfranchised black
majority as well as whites, would ban computer exports
to South African military and law enforcement agencies,
and would block the sale of nuclear technology to South
Africa unless it is "necessary for humanitarian reasons
to protect health and safety."
Veering from his policy of "constructive engagement"
for the first time, Reagan embraced portions of a bill he
had been committed to veto and - despite fierce objec-
tions by Democrats - slowed a march on Capitol Hill
toward harsher measures.
Acceding to demands for stiffer U.S. opposition to the
South African policy of racial segregation, Reagan
issued an executive order that incorporated much of the
legislation before Congress - except for a threat of
more severe sanctions in the future - and extended
existing curbs on loans and transfers of technology.
THE MOVE was enough to persuade the Senate to
forestall action by a vote of 53-34 on an anti-apartheid
bill that Reagan threatened to veto, and that Congress,
in turn, was sure to override - a major blow for Reagan
at the start of a busy autumn agenda.
Supporters of the bill filed a motion to force another
vote by tomorrow.
In Pretoria, South African President Pieter Botha
lashed out at Reagan with a declaration that sanctions
"cannot solve our problems" and warned they could fuel
racial violence that has killed some 700 people in the past
year. See SOUTH AFRICAN, page 3

NAPERVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Foot-
ball players tend to look a lot alike
bundled up in pads and jerseys, but
North Central's College's team will
really make its opponents see double
this season. Four times over.
The Cardinals have four sets of
twins, three of them identical, and
Coach Paul Connor says even he has
to use jersey numbers to tell some of
Sometimes I have to stop and
think before I call," said Connor.
"The Ricks brothers are especially
tough to tell apart."
Don and David Ricks, 17-year-old
freshmen from Deerfield, Fla., are
identical down to the frames on their
glassses, said Jeff Brewer, the
school's sports information director.
Though both are defensive backs,
Connor apparently is resisting the
temptation to rotate them and leave
some hapless opponents believing
they were facing one tireless super
"I play the left corner and he plays
the right corner," said Dave, noting
he and his brother have the same
build and speed and can anticipate
each other's moves.
A recurring problem cited by
some of the twins was getting
blamed for a sibling's mistakes.
"It happens all the time, that
somebody will yell at one for the
other's mistakes," said Ken Wilson,
21, of Jacksonville, Ill., a starting
His identical twin, Greg, is a star-
ting split end, lining up a bit farther
down the line. Both are seniors, and
both are wearing their hair very
short for the season.
"HE CATCHES more passes,"
said Ken. "But this is my first year
playing tight end."
FRANK HOBART curled his hair,
to distinguish him from his straight-
haired brother, Wes. But that does
little good when their locks are
covered by helmets.
The 18-year-old freshmen from
Michigan City, Ind., play offensive
guard. Frank wears No. 66; Wes No.
"Coach Connor's got us mixed up
all the time," Frank said.
The fourth set are fraternal twins
Tim and Tom Franklin, 18, fresh-
men from Watseka, Ill.
CONNOR recruited the three sets
of freshman twins in his first season
at North Central College, a member
of the College Conference of Illinois
and Wisconsin. The school ended
last season with a 2-7 record.
"He didn't know the Franklins
were twins until they got here,"
Brewer said. "They look different."
The Cardinals, who play NCAA
Divison III football, do not give out
scholarships, although some players
get work-study help or grants based
on need, Brewer said.
The school, a private liberal arts
college with 1,700 students, plays in
the same conference as powerful
Augustana College in Rock Island,
which has won the. ,ivision III
national title two years in a row.

Though the recently announced student request accoun-
ts giving students "free" computing time on MTS
represented a major change in University computing
policy, bigger and better plans for expanded computer use
are coming soon, a top University official said last night.
Douglas Van Houweling, the University's vice provost
for information technology, speaking at the public forum,
"Students and Computers at the University of Michigan,"
said increasing computer accessibility is necessary if the
University is going to continue to provide students with a

students, faculty, and staff gathered for the forum at

Cottage Inn and Omega. The dormwide party was
organized by Resident Director Beth Pampu and $3,000

votes were tallied, Dominos came out the clear winner.

however, did spur childish antics. Several students
raced down hallways in East Quad, playing flashlight

floor of Prescott, East Quad, hauled blinking highway
construction signs into their halls for some sort of light.
