fice," Josephson said. Josephson said
he and the other three students
presented estimates on how many
University students would be affected
by the cuts and how much financial
aid funding they would lose.
The University took us suriously
and helped make the trip a success,"
Vebo Prasad, vice-chairman of
MSA's legislative relations commit-
tee, said the group met with 16 out of
the 20 members of the Michigan
"WE TRIED to get support for a
student regent proposal," Prasad
said. "MSA feels that all public-
funded universities in Michigan
should have two students on their
board of regents."
Prasad said Spencer Abraham,
chairman of the state's Republican
party, was receptive to the idea of a
non-voting student member of the
Board of Regents.
The group also tried to persuade
Michigan Congressmen that scholar-
ship money exceeding students'
tuition and fees should not be taxed,
Prasad said. "If a student's summer
earnings and scholarship money ex-
ceed tuition and fees, it's not worth
the government's trouble to withhold
a small amount," he said.
John Gaber, a member of the MSA's
legislative relations committee, said
a majority of the Michigan
congressional delegation was recep-
tive to the views of the students.
"We also tried to lobby members
who are lukewarm toward
education," Gaber said. "Rep.
(Mark) Siljander (R-Three Rivers)
feels that education should take its
share of the budget cuts and we tried
to persuade him that education is too
valuable to cut."
Sonya Pettingill, a member of
Rackham Student Government, was
the fourth member of the group.

"I regret that this happened on the
University campus and would hope
that this kind of situation does not
occyur again," the letter concluded.
The assembly passed a resolution
last Tuesday condeming the actions
of the police and security officers. The
resolution also called for hanging a
banner on the Diag demanding that
Shapiro apologize for the incident.
MSA agreed last night not to post
the bannerebecause of Shapiro's let-
ter. "I'm happy to have received the
letter and glad that Shapiro came to
the same conclusion that we did,"
said MSA President Paul Josephson.

ALSO AT last night's meeting,
Robert Holmes, the University's
assistant vice president for academic
affairs, told the assembly why the
CRISP priority schedule change will
not occur this fall.
LSA Student Government proposed
that the University change the order
in which students register for classes.
The new schedule would let seniors
register first, followed by juniors,
then sophomoreswand freshmen
simultaneously. There would still be
an alphabetic rotation within each
The current system also mandates
that seniors register first, but juniors
are given no preferential treatment.
Holmes said the University plans to
make the change, but it will not do so
until there is a "100 percent guarantee
that the computer programs would be
changed properly." That means that
the new system will not be implemen-
ted until Winter Term 1987.
Also yesterday, MSA passed an
ethics chapter. The voting margin
was fifteen members for the charter,
against, and two members abstained

Scientist says SDI is feasible
By ROB EARLE
The Strategic Defense Initiative is
technically feasible, but it cannot be
totally effective, the manager of Ad-
vanced Analysis at Rockwell Inter-
national said last night.
About 25 people crowded into an
Angell Hall room to hear Benjamin
Schwartz, who does research in elec-
tronics and computer systems for the
SDI program, popularly known as
"WILL IT WORK?" Schwartz
asked. "No, yes, and maybe."
Schwartz said President Reagan's
aim to make nuclear weapons ob-
solete by implementing a defensive
shield of lasers and other high-tech
stuff is unrealistic.
He added, however, that at least
some of the missiles fired in a nuclear
war would be taken out by such a
system. The system could also work if
a "third power" such as Libya or Iran
ever attacked the United States with
one or two missiles.
Even then, however, Schwartz said
there is no guarantee that the missiles
could be intercepted.
SCHWARTZ said problems of sof-
tware reliability and the effectiveness
of individual components of a
strategic defensesystemcould be
overcome with time or replaced with
different components. He said that
while much of the hardware for a
"star wars" system has been possible
for 15 years, the software needed to
run such a complex system is not yet
"We know we can't do it today,"
Schwartz said, adding that advances
between now and 2020, when the
system is expected to be fully
operational, will provide the answers.
Schwartz stressed the need for
careful development of SDI systems
to insure success of the program.
"You just can't do it by throwing
money at it," he said.

THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO
BECOMING A NURSE IN THE ARMY.
And they're both repre-
sented by the insignia you wear
as a member of the Army Nurse
Corps. The caduceus on the left
means you're part of a health care
system in which educational and
career advancement are the rule,
not the exception. The gold bar
on the right means you command respect as an Army officer. If you're
