Some students attempt to minimize
their academic pressure by cutting
back on the hours they work. Kim
Langlois, a natural resources
sophomore, chooses her own hours
when she works at the front desk in
Couzens residence hall.
"I HAVE TO cut down my hours. I
don't think I could handle a job where
they schedule you a certain number of
Other students are not as fortunate
as Langlois and must work a set num-
ber of hours. Without the option of
choosing between work and studies,
students cut back on sleep.
Bernie Gburek, an LSA sophomore
said his job at the Couzens cafeteria
"cuts into my study time and
definitely cuts into my sleep time."
GBUREK SAID he only loses one
hour of sleep each night, although he
puts on 15 hours each week in the
Other students instead pile on the
pressure and continue to work long
hours while taking a full load of
classes. Shishkoff said he has talked
to about twenty people this school
year "who were working an
unreasonable amount of hours." He
classified these students as
For some students, however, these
hours are not a choice but a necessity.
They work to pay for tuition, rent,
books, and food. And recent increases
in tuition combined with inflation only
make this struggle more difficult.
WORKING CAN even motivate
good study habits. Allison Kolch, an
LSA Freshman, said, "If I wasn't
working I would be wasting my time.
This way I get quality study time."
LSA Freshman Sherri Campbell
agreed with Kolcn, saying, "having a
job motivates me to do my studies."
Campbell works as a chemistry lab
One student even found a way to use
work as a procrastination technique.
Sara Thier, an LSA Junior who works
at Rick's, said she has a habit of
procrastinating in general and
working for her is "an efficient way of
procrastination. I say 'I can't study, I
have to work.' "

tudy bill, to work out the differences
between the bills.
Under the House bill, graduate
students are not eligible for the work-
study programs. Both graduate and
undergraduate students are eligible
for the work-study programs under
the Senate bill.
ONCE A compromise is reached,
individual universitities still have to
decide how to distribute the jobs. "We
don't have any rules for distributing
the jobs," Borset said.
Sederburg said that a compromise
may be reached by passsing two bills.
An Ypsilanti man escaped from the
Ann Arbor city hall Tuesday where
he was to have been arraigned on
bogus check charges.
Twenty-four-year-old Bobby Neal
fled the building between 11:30 and
12:30. Police Sergeant Jan Soumala
said, "The method of escape is still
Soumala adds that Neal is "still not
in custody." - Stephen Gregory

"It's possible that a senate bill which
provides work-study funds for
graduate students will be passed,
along with a House bill that deals ex-
clusively with undergraduate studen-
SEDERBURG said he thinks that
a compromise will be reached
sometime within the next month.
Brown is also optimistic. "I'm
hopeful there will be a compromise
within a few weeks."
If the two bills are passed, they will
still need the governor's approval.
"The program will begin as soon as
the governor signs the bills and the
universities gear up for the new
program," Brown said. "There won't
be much delay in getting the funds to
the universities since the ap-
propriations have already taken
ALTHOUGH many University
students have jobs that are funded by
the federal work-study program,
Vivian Hoey, University student em-
ployment coordinator, said ap-
proximately 2,100 students here have
jobs that are partially or completely
funded through the federal program.
"The jobs range from low level
library assistants to peer counselors
to computer programmers," Hoey
THE PAY ranges from $3.35 per
hour to $10 per hour, Hoey said.
Hoey feels that the work-study
program is worthwhile. "College
students have a wide variety of skills
to offer employers."

Free South Africa Coordinating
ast week I went on a
yy - 1Ublind date. She was the
most beautiful girl I ever met. When I
first saw her, my heart beat so fast I thought it
would jump out of my body and compete in a 440
dash. I wanted to impress her; so impulsively I took her
to the best restaurant in town.
All was going well and I anticipated the beginnings of a beautiful
friendship. Maybe more. What I didn't anticipate was her appetite. She ate
enough to feed a track team through a week of tough workouts. When the bill
came, I didn't have nearly enough cash.
She was polite enough about paying her share. But when I called her
up the next day, she disguised her voice to sound like an old woman and
informed me that, misery of miseries, her dear college-aged granddaughter
had just left town to join a travelling dance troupe.
What did I do wrong?
-Undernourished and Underloved
Love is a funny thing, eh? One minute you're staring into the warm
depth of someone's eyes; the next minute you're staring into the cold recess-
es of an empty wallet.
You did two things wrong. First, you tried to impress her with food.
That's the way to a man's heart. Second, you forgot that no one is impressed
when you invite them out and then can't pick up the check. Next time,
remember to take along something that will impress her: the American
