Sof his war record

From AP and UPI
Ferdinand Marcos said yesterday
that he would ignore the "crazy indiv-
duals" who question the war record
on which he built his political career.
He made the comment in a cam-
paign speech to a crowd that included
many World War II veterans, after The
New York Times published an article
citing U.S. Army investigations that
found his claim of leading guerrillas
against the Japanese to be
In yesterday's editions, the Times
cited 400 pages of Army reports on
Marcos' military career. The reports
said Ang Mag Maharlika, the
guerrilla group he says he led, "never
existed" as a fighting organization
and was not controlled adequately
"because of the desertion of its com-
manding officer" - Marcos
The president, now 68 years old,
won 27, 28, 32 or 33 medals, depending
on the Philippine government report
accepted. He is described here as the
mnst decorated soldier of the war and
claims more honors than Gen.
Douglas MacArthur, who directed the
Allied War in the Pacific.
His war record is so important to
Marcos that he talks about it in nearly
every interview and speech, and in
1982 closed down a newspaper that
printed articles challenging it.
He says he suffered five war woun-
ds and tells war stories in his cam-
paign speeches for the Feb. 7 election,
in which he is opposed by Corazon
Aquino, widow of assassinated op-
position leader Benigno Aquino.
Aquino, meanwhile, unleashed her
strongest attack yet against Marcos,
yesterday calling him "an evil
genius"who ripped "out the heart" of
Interrupted 33 times by applause
from 1,500 businessmen and civic
leaders packed in a ballroom of the
posh Manila Hotel, Aquino outlined a
political program focusing on con-
stitutional reforms she intends to im-
plement if she topples Marcos in the
Feb. 7 election.

What job can a liberal arts graduate
get in this high-tech world? Technical
advertiser Steven Bennett said
yesterday that although liberal arts
degree holders may not reap im-
mediate financial rewards, their
skills qualify them for a wide variety
Bennett, who holds a doctorate in
Asian Studies from Harvard Univer-
sity, speaksdfrom personal experien-
ce. He specialized in geomancy, the
ancient Chinese science of locating
buildings and burial plots in their
correct spatial and spiritual align-
ment. Some Chinese believe that
living in the incorrect space in the
cosmos will bring ill health and bad
luck, he said.
Although Bennett went to China to
make a career ,ut of his interest in
geomancy, he found his specialization
to be impracticp' and unprofitable.
He realized, however, that many fir-
ms would value the other skills he
developed during his education.
"LSA students are desirable
because they know how to learn,"
Bennett said. Because liberal arts
students are so broadly educated,
they are qualified for many jobs out-
side their majors such as com-
munications, research, personnel
counseling, public relations, and
According to Bennett, com-
munications skills learned in a liberal
arts education are the key to finding a
job. He cited an IBM study which
found that employees with liberal arts
degrees advance more quickly in the
corporation than their coworkers with

"I was very embarrassed to be in
the focus of such attention. It put too
much pressure on me," Lodisev said.
"You never get this much attention in
Reflecting on the fact that the
couple spent two days together in New
York and now have all their time
together, Gubin said, "It's wonder-
still separated. "I guess the only thing
that's really bothering us is when
we'll see the other 20 reunited. That's
our biggest concern right now.
Everything else we can manage."
THE COUPLE is scheduled to meet
with Congressman Howard Wolpe on
Saturday to discuss the issue of
Lodisev said he will seek a job as a
computer programmer, for which he
has training. Although the program-
ming fundamentals are the same in
education enabled him to research
and write stories for the journal.
After his initial success, Bennett's
job responsibilities broadened. The
medical journal and other journals
that were familiar with his work con-
tracted Bennett to illustrate his own
articles, and today Bennett owns a
technical advertising firm which
produces graphs and charts for
Bennett said that if liberal arts
graduates can't find a job, they can
create their own if they use their
imaginations and creativity.
For those who want to create their
own businesses, it is important to
realize beforehand that it is all right
to fail. Bennett pointed out that taking
risks, even if they prove unsuccessful,
can enhance a resume.
Bennett advised aspiring en-
trepreneurs to assess unmet needs in
the market to get ideas for a business.
