MANILA, Philippines - President Fer-
dinand Marcos was well ahead yesterday
in the official vote count by the National
Assembly, which his party controls.
Corazon Aquino, who claims she won the
election, said he must resign to prevent
After seven hours of tabulating tally-
sheets from the archipelago's 74 provinces
and more than 60 cities, the assembly had
Marcos ahead with 6,403,785 votes to
5,584,581 for Aquino. That gave Marcos
an edge of about 53 percent to Aquino's 46
percent with about 46 percent of the votes
The assembly's count determines the
outcome under Philippine law.
THE NATIONAL Movement for Free
Elections, an independent poll-watchers'
group called Namfrel, had Aquino ahead
in its unofficial count. It gave her 7,158,679
votes to 6,532,362 for Marcos, based on 64
percent of more than 86,000 precincts
The tally sheet delivered to the National
Assembly from the president's home
province of Ilocos Norte said the votes
came from 761 precincts. The province has
624 registered precincts.
"WHERE they got the other precincts,
God knows," opposition assemblyman
Marcelo Fernan said, bringing laughter
from both the floor and the galleries.
As the tally began, Aquino press
spokesman Rene Saguisag said an op-
position political coordinator was killed
yesterday and his son was missing and
feared dead in the northern Tarlac provin-
ce town of Moncado.
Saguisag said Arsenio Cainglet was
gunned down by four men who fled. Police
later found a body near Cainglet's home,
but were unable to make a positive iden-
tification because the face was blown
away, he said.
THERE was no official confirmation of
the slaying, which came as Aquino par-
ticipated in a funeral procession through
v the streets of Manila for Evelio Javier, a
key supporter murdered Tuesday in the
central province of Antique.
At least 130 people have died in election
- related violence since the campaign
began in December.
Apparently confident of victory, Marcos
interrupted the nationally televised vote
count to deliver a speech in which he called
for calm and urged his supporters "to take

The department of Communication has
proposed new requirements for a concen-
tration in that field, including lowering the
total number of hours for the concen-
tration from 38 to 31 and increasing the
hours of cognate credit from six to nine.
The LSA curriculum committee is ex-
pected to act on the proposed revision at
their meeting Tuesday. Any changes must
be ultimately approved by the LSA
COMMUNICATION chairman John
Stevens said that at the request of the
executive committee, the department last
year reviewed their curriculum in order to
narrow its focus.
Stevens said that the executive commit-
tee felt the department was teaching more
courses than they could handle.
"Over the past four or five years the
number of faculty has dropped an average
of one per year and during that time the
number of concentrators has gone up by
more than 25 percent," said Stevens.
"We decided where our strength
was-mass media," said Marion Marzolf,
associate professor of communications in
charge of the undergraduate curriculum.
TWO of the five required courses for
concentrators-101, Interpersonal com-
munication and 210, Persuasive com-
munication-have already been dropped
because of staffing problems and because
they are outside of the field of mass com-
The proposed changes would require
concentrators to take courses 103, 202, and
401 plus three hours from each of the
following groups: Theory and Research,
Institutions, and Communications skills.
The proposal would also require nine
hours of approved cognate courses.
Under current 'requirements, students
are required to take courses 101, 103, 202,
210, and 290 in addition to 15 hours of 300
and 400 level courses, including at least
one from each of the three areas.
THE TOTAL number of courses offered
by the department could be reduced from
28 to 22. Already discontinued, effective
this year, were 408, Organizational Com-
munication; 102, Public Speaking for
Teachers; and 411, Argumentation.
Marzolf said that the concentration is "a
general curriculum; it's not a
pre-professional one." She said the
proposed revision relies more heavily on
cognates to make up for courses the

Don't count the Wolverines among the people
feeling sorry for Minnesota.
The Gophers, sporting an almost completely
different roster than the one that beat the
Wolverines by ten points in Minnesota, were
simply no match for Michigan last night, losing
92-56 at Crisler Arena.
ROY TARPLEY led the attack with 21 points
on nine-of-11 shooting and added nine rebounds
in a polished performance.
"T hey beat up on us (at Minnesota). I guess I
just returned the favor," said Tarpley.
"We owed Minnesota," added Wolverine
forward Richard Rellford. "I don't feel sorry
for them. They've been beating teams."
ELEVEN PLAYERS scored points for the
Wolverines, who shot 59 percent from the field.
That plus a prohibitive Michigan rebounding
advantage (43-25) kept the home team on a roll
"This was a big victory for us," said head
coach Bill Frieder. "It's important for us to
bounce back after a tough loss."
Minnesota's only chance at winning the game
was to keep the tempo slow enough to keep its

'U' Council waives rules of evidence
By KERY MURAKAMI
The University Council yesterday
agreed that formal rules of evidence, as
used in courts of law, should not apply to
hearings under its version of the code of
Instead, councilmembers said, mem-
bers of a 3-person hearing board will be
trained about the principals behind the
rules, rather than the intricate rules.
THE BOARD, composed of one student,
one faculty member, and one ad-
ministator, will not be expected to be
trained in law, said Suzanne Cohen, a law
student and co-chair of the council.
Previous drafts of the code proposed by
the University's administration also
waived the rules. This prompted protest
from students who said it was a violation of
their civil rights.
"In courts of law, the judge can throw
out pieces of evidence as unadmissable,"
said Cohen, "but under our hearing, the
board would decide." No judge is planned

Students panic over
major, speaker says
By WENDY SHARP
Choosing a major can be a
mind-boggling experience for some
Towards the end of sophomore year
many students panic about their con-
centrations, careers, and futures, Dr.
Louis Rice, associate director of LSA
counseling services, said last night at
RICE WARNED students not to
throw darts on a "major chart" on the
wall to choose their concentrations.
But he added students "probably
should not ask your parents or your
best friend" what to major in.
Students should pick a major that
they are interested in, Rice said.
"The ability of a college graduate
does not depend on the label of a
degree, but on the individual," Rice
said. "Selling yourself, marketing
yourself, and translating what skills
you learned" are the factors that
help students find jobs, he added.
Rice stressed the importance of a
liberal arts degree. He said students
unnecessarily feel compelled to major
in something related to their future
careers. "You don't have to major in
biology or chemistry to go to medical
school and you don't have to major in
accounting to go to business school,"
he said. "Even a history major can go
to medical school if he has enough
biology or chemistry credits," he ad-
COURSES RELATED to a future
job or further studies are necessary,
but a major is not. Some LSA majors
only require 24 to 30 credit hours,
leaving a student a lot of flexibility in
choosing electives. "Electives can be
the most important things you do for
total education," Rice said.

D O YOU ever feel like everyone is
psychoanalyzing you? Do you long to inhabit
a Skinner Box? The University may have
something to do with it. In the February
since it "seems to be one of the centers where there
happen to be a lot of psychologists, especially as
researchers. But there are no fast numbers," he ad-
mitted. According to the American Psychological
Association, 150 of its members live here. New York
has the highest number of members - about 1,000. The
density in New York is approximately one psychologist
for every 20 square miles. It is much greater here,
