Anchorwvoman advises students

Channel 7 anchorwoman Dayna Eubanks told a
student audience that she is often underestimated,
but has "learned to love to be underestimated, and
it's always such a delight to make fools of people."
Speaking at the Student Leadership Conference
Saturday, Eubanks warned students that there
are even some women who underestimate female
workers because of their gender. "But don't be
angry and don't fight every battle. You learn to
choose your battles," she said.
The day-long conference was sponsored by the
Student Organization Development Center and
hosted about 120 University students from several
campus organizations. The conference featured
seminars on motivating group members,
recruiting new people, and stress management.
Conference coordinator Ginger Davison said the
sessions were not meant to be lectures. "We are

all resources for each other. A lot of how it turns
out depends on the students and their participation,"
she said.
I've learned to love to be
underestimated, and it's
always such a delight to
make fools of people.'
- Dayna Eubanks
Channel 7 anchorwoman
DAVISON said Eubanks was chosen to speak at
the conference because "she is someone who has
really grown through her undergraduate in-
volvement (in extra-curricular activities), and
her involvement has had an impact on who she

Eubanks, who started out in the theater depar-
tment at the University of Kansas, moved into
communications when she decided she needed a
back-up career in case acting didn't pan out. She
joined the campus radio station staff and interned
at a radio station in Topeka.
The anchorwoman said extra-curricular ac-
tivities are crucial to getting a job after
"By the time you have graduated you must have
at least one year of experience in your chosen
field," Eubanks said.
"Unfortunately there are a lot of University of
Michigan students who come to Channel 7 to work
who are very naive. They get really good grades,
but they have no common sense."~
Eubanks encouragedstudents to meet as many
people as possible. "Once you go across the coun-
try the same people are there. They have different
names and different faces, but the same per-
sonalities," she said.


ravel packages offer

Only three weeks remain before
students desert Ann Arbor for spring
break. While students rush to finalize
their plans, travel organizations and
student clubs compete for the student
dollar by offering package deals at
appealing prices.
According to area travel represen-
tatives, spring break is a boon to the
travel industry because students like
to escape Michigan's bland winters.
Students, some of whom earn free
spring break trips, also benefit.
"WHEN YOU think of spring break,
it seems like this entire campus
evacuates to Florida," said Beth
Painter, president of the Resident
Hall Association, which sponsors trips
to Daytona Beach and Fort Lauder-
dale, Fla.
"Students are attracted to the sun-
shine, bars, and the atmosphere
created when students from other
colleges meet each other," she added.
RHA charges $169 for bus transpor-
tation and lodgings in Daytona Beach,
Fla. For students who willprovide
their own transportation, the cost
goes down to $89.

For example, Eastern Airlines offers
a $359 round-trip fare to Tampa, Fla.
for passengers who reserve space two
weeks in advance, said one ticket
agent. Airfares to other vacation hot-
spots such as Denver, Colo. and Fort
Lauderdale, Fla. range from nearly
$200 to over $300.
Travel packages also offer students
greater flexibility when planning
their trips. RHA, for example, only
recently began taking student reser-
vations, while airline agents said
flights to common spring break
destinations have been booked solid
for several weeks.
While some students flock to war-
mth and sunshine, others prefer to ski
the slopes.
"WE GO to Aspen because it's such
a lively place, and it has four different
mountains to accommodate just about
any kind of skier," said Janet
Waidley, Vice President of the
University's Spring Break Club.
The club, which was formed to draw
students together to save money on
spring break, offers a $417 package
which includes transporation,
lodging, and lift tickets.
Waidley hopes to take about 100
skiers to the slopes for spring break.
THE CLUB'S package resembles
many of the Florida-bound packages
with its organized bar hopping ex-
peditions and beer and wine supplied

"It's really social. We drink a lot,"
she said.

The trip also gives students a chan-
ce to make new friends.
"ASPEN IS a hot spot. We have
promoted some spring break flings,
and we try to follow up by having hap-
py hours so people stay in touch when
we get back," she said.

promoting physical, active ex-

Pickard said.
His biggest project for spring break
is the ski trip to Utah, sponsored by
the University's ski team.
"We're putting an emphasis on
skiing instead of getting drunk and
partying," he said. "We wanted to
avoid the spring break bus trip
because people need the energy to ski
when they get there," he added.


Haitian govt. orders curfew
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - The government yesterday ordered a par-
tial curfew in Cap Haitien, a flashpoint of demonstrations against
President-for-Life Jean Claude Duvalier, and restricted foreign reporters
to Port-au-Prince.
Government-owned Radio National said Cap Haitien's 80,000 residents
have been ordered to keep indoors between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.
No reason for the curfew was given and it was not known immediately
if it would be enforced for more than one day. It was the first curfew of-
ficially ordered in Haiti since Duvalier declared a 30-day state of siege
Friday in the impoverished nation.
Cap Haitien, Haiti's second-largest city, is about 125 miles north of
Port-au-Prince on the Atlantic Coast.
The government communique also ordered all owners of radio tran-
smitters to report their location to authorities.
Eleven people have been killed since demonostrations began a week
ago. Three people were shot to death there last Monday, and three people
were trampled to death Wednesday when demonstrators mobbed a
CARE warehouse. Five people died Friday in demonstrations in Port-au-
Costa Rica holds elections
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - Costa Ricans turned out in record numbers to
vote yesterday in a presidential election that many observers predicted
would be a close race between two candidates, both considered
moderates and pro-American.
Election day was a balmy day of flag-waving, horn-honking celebration
for this tiny nation, Central America's oldest, most stable democracy.
The contest was viewed a toss-up between two of the six contenders,
Oscar Arias and Rafael Calderon.
Arias, a London-trained economist, was the candidatesofnthe governing
National Liberation Party. Calderon, a lawyer and son of a former
president, represented an opposition coalition known as the Social
Christian Unity Party.
The other four presidential candidates were expected to share no more
than 5 percent of the total vote, which officials said would exceed 1 million
for the first time in Costa Rica's history.
Philippine election officials
negotiate to prevent fraud
MANILA, Philippines - Government and independent election of-
ficials agreed yesterday to share early returns from this week's presiden-
tial election to prevent fraud. But some opposition leaders said pro-
government news media could use selected returns to declare President
Ferdinand Marcos an early winner.
Officials of the Commission on Elections and a private watchdog group,
the National Movement for Free Elections, or NAMFREL, met for more
than four hours to negotiate a unified "quick count" of the election this
Representatives of both sides said they agreed to share early returns
from the nation's 90,000 precincts, which sometimes have trouble com-
municating with the capital. The nation is spread of 7,100 islands, with
an estimated 27 million registered voters.
NAMFREL's role has been tacitly endorsed by both the Roman
Catholic church and the U.S. government, which is sending a 19-member
delegation to observe the election.
Botha plans reforms in S.A.
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - President Pieter Botha abandoned
his take-it-or-leave-it political style for a media campaign yesterday to
woo support for "institutionalized power sharing" between South Africa's
ruling whites and black majority.
"My government and I are committed to power sharing," Botha said in
an unprecedented two-page newspaper advertisement drafted for him by
a commercial agency.
Botha's newspaper appeal came after 17 months of racial unrest that
has claimed more than 1,200 lives.
The media blitz began Friday night, when Botha appeared on black
radio and television to explain his plans to reform apartheid - the gover-
nment's system of racial separation - and appeal to blacks t'join him in
negotiating the structures "everyone desires."
In an address to Parliament Friday, Botha announced plans to create a
multi-racial council to advise him on how to grant blacks unspecified new
political rights. He said blacks also would be allowed to own their homes
and be given greater freedom to travel, work and live where they choose.
Firecracker tossed at pope
NEW DELHI, India - Police arrested a man they said appeared "of
unsound mind" after he tossed a noisy but harmless firecracker at the
end of a Sunday Mass celebrated by Pope Paul II.
The firecracker raised a plume of smoke about 40 yards from John
Paul, who was leaving the indoor Indira Gandhi Stadium after saying
mass before about 25,000 people. It burned the carpet, but hurt no one.
Already tight security was increased for John Paul's 10-day tour of 14
cities, and police in the next city on the tour, Tanchi, rounded up around
100 people considered potential trouble makers.
Before the disturbance, John Paul applauded efforts by Christians and
others to "relieve the burdens of misery" of India's millions of poor.

Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro said the pontiff heard the
firecracker's loud bang but gave no sign of concern.
But a Vatican official, who asked not to be named, said several mem-
bers of the papal entourage "were concerned" on hearing the blast. The
65-year-old pontiff has survived two assassination attempts.
Police told The Associated Press the man, identified as Dominique
Ouseph, was charged with mischief and violation of the explosive sub-
stances act.

Some bar patrons were angry when
the charge was instituted, saying that
it was unjustified because Charley's

tainment. "You're not paying for
anything," said Michelle Des Rosiers.
"It's almost not worth coming in

"THE ONLY reason people come to

Charley's co-owner John Rogers
said he doesn't think Charley's will be
able to cover the cost of their insuran-

to do the best we can," he said.
Rogers hopes to improve business
both at Charley's and at the Count of
Antipasto, the restaurant part of the
South University and Church
establishment. He is also optimistic
about business during the summer.
"We usually do well in the summer
with our (outdoor) cafe," he said. He
does not intend to raise liquor prices
or change Charley's format to include
live entertainment or dancing to
cover the insurance costs.
