By J.A. NIELSEN
A group of University students is
taking time out from academics and
partying to learn about philanthropy.
Their target is the Ann Arbor shelter
for the homeless.
TheeBursley Hall students and eight
staff members are planning to clean
the shelter and sponsor a coffeehouse
for residents in the spring. The
charitable gesture is part of the
group's on-going effort to help Ann
Arbor's homeless.
"WE'RE TRYING to get students to
do something beneficial for Ann
Arbor," said Bursley Resident Ad-
visor Chris Turner.
Turner said the effort was initiated
last year, but "last year the project
' didn't get off the ground. We collected
money and clothing, but didn't get
people to go down to the shelter. And
that's what they need," he said.
The group is not sure how they will
clean the shelter. Members saidthey
are waiting to see what needs to be
done. Last fall 45 students took a
Saturday afternoon to paint and clean
the home, said Cathy Zick, the
shelter's director.
"I WAS overwhelmed by the
response and really impressed with
the people," said Zick.
Brian Wolff, an LSA freshman,

spent about five hours painting.
"It was either go to the shelter and do
something for somebody else or
study," he said.
The coffeehouse will be modeled af-
ter one that the students sponsored in
the fall. The group provided vegetable

In November the city declared one
week, "Homeless Awareness Week."
In keeping with the week's spirit the
group canvassed North Campus
neighborhoods collecting blankets,
linens, and thousands of articles of
clothing.

"We're trying to get students to do something'
beneficial for Ann Arbor."
-Chris Turner,
Bursley Resident Advisor

Bassett said 4,723 cans were collec-
ted resulting in a $527 donation to the
shelter. "This collection was sort of
symbolic," Constantinou said. "We
did a survey of what residents thought
people searched the garbage for. Most
thought they must be looking for
booze, but in fact they are usually
looking for cans," she said.
In December, the committee
organized a "dollar drive." Out of
1200 Bursley residents, 871 donated
one dollar, according to Bassett.
THE MONEY went to the shelter's
general operation fund, said Zick.
"We used it to help pay for ad-
vocacy services and to help guests
find housing," she said.
The student's efforts resulted in
about 200 students volunteering
regularly at the shelter, Bassett said.
Judi Andersen, a sophomore in the
School of Art spends at least one night
a month helping at the shelter. She
said working at the shelter puts her
experience at the University in a new
perspective.
"While I'm at the shelter, I don't
think about academics. I don't think
about myself five years down the
road, working a nine-to-five job," An-
derson said.
"I think only about these people and
their problems."

MARIA Constantinou, a Bursley
Resident Director, said the guests
lov.ed the snacks. "They usually get
government cheese or left-over
donuts from Dom Bakeries, if they get
anything. Potato chips are something
of a luxury to them," she said.

"The response from Ann Arborites
was excellent," said Theresa Basset,
A Bursley R.D. "We collected several
carloads of stuff, including six com-
forters," she said.
THE COMMITTEE also collected
toiletry items, hats, and scarves from
dorm residents, and gathered
thousands of cans in a can drive.

So they have to play catch-up with the ever-
changing virus, trying to decide during one flu
season what new variants may return next year
and whether to redesign next year's vaccine ac-
cordingly.

That work is proceeding amid the nation's worst
influenza outbreak in five years. Forty-five states
and the District of Columbia have reported flu to

1981," CDC epidemiologist Karl Kappus said
yesterday. But deaths from flu appear to be run-
ning lower than last year, he said.
CDC tracks flu in weekly reports from 121 cities.

LSA accepts changes for
Conmunications majors
(Continued from Page 1)

who have already declared a concen-
tration can opt to follow the old plan or
the new one.
Although the curriculum committee
approved the revisions, it will send a
letter to the department recommen-
ding improvement in the
geographical and cultural breadth of
the departmental courses and the
recommended cognate courses.
History prof. Rudi Lindner, who is
chairman of the curriculum commit-
tee, said the courses offer "very little
of other media in other countries,"
and he expressed concern about the
department "centering on a North
American experience."
THE COMMITTEE also discussed a
draft of the report on ROTC credit
prepared by a three-member sub-
committee that was set up last Oc-
tober.
Currently students in LSA are not
granted any credit for courses taken
through ROTC unless the course is
cross-listed with an LSA department.
Other schools like engineering and
education permit various amounts of
credit for ROTC courses.
The 17-page report prepared by
profs. Bruce Frier, John Shy, and
Lindner outlines two possible options
for the college.
ACCORDING to Shy, LSA can
either continue its current policy or
permit a maximum of four hours of
ROTC credit to be counted in studen-
ts' junior and senior years.
"Those are the years where ROTC
students tend to get into an overload
situation," said Shy.
The issue of allowing credit for
ROTC courses was brought up by the
Military Officers Education Program
Committee (MOEPC), the liason
committee between the military
programs and the University.
CORRECTION
The phone number for information regarding
internships in Jewish Communial Service in
yesterday's Daily is incorrect. The ad should
read, "Please call Hillel, (313) 663-3336
for appointment." The Daily is sorry for any
inconvenience to its readers.

ROTC would like LSA to review
each course for credit on its own merit
but the report notes, "We see no
feasible way for LSA to evaluate these
courses on a course by course basis."
The curriculum committee is still
discussing the report. An LSA faculty
vote is required before any changes
can be made in the policy.
