Ben Lummis, Fresh. LSA:
My big concern is that
someone will vandalize it.
It's important so that the

the struggle in South Africa.

Yes, it's a symbol of students

And as long as the struggle
exists, and as long as there is
doubt about the University's
position, it should stay up.
John Knave Jr., Soph. LSA:
Yes, it's a symbol and ob-

sense, if people tried to
knock it down. They must be
aware of it.
Lori Veederame, Jun. LSA:
In the wake of all these
violent acts against these

to keep it up.
Andy Solomon, Jun. LSA:
Since it's not interfering with

COMPILED FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS AND
UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL REPORTS
W. Germans expel 2 Libyans
BONN, WEST GERMANY - West Germany ordered the expulsions of
two Libyan diplomats yesterday a day after Government sources said the
United States had stepped up pressure on Bonn to apply sanctions against
Libya to protest its support of terrorism.
The expulsions were ordered by Foreign Minister Hans Kietrich Gen-
scher on the basis of accumluating that the two men had "taken actions
imcompatible with normal diplomatic practice," chief government
spokesman Friedhelm Ost told a new conference.
Ost declined specifics on what the men were accused of, but said, "It is
not directly connected with the Berlin attack" last Saturday night of a West
Berlin nightclub frequented by U.S. servicemen. One American and a
Turkish woman died in the bombing and 230 people were injured, in-
cluding 64 Americans.
Ost said the Cabinet "unanimously approved" the expulsions. He
quoted Chancellor Helmut Kohl as saying: "We will not let our American
friends be bombed out or terrorized out."
Engler opposes state aid for
homosexual AIDS victims
LANSING - Republican candidate for Governor, Colleen Engler (Mt.
Pleasant), said no money should go for counseling programs for
homosexual AIDS victims, but should instead be targeted for other poten-
tial victims of the deadly disease.
"If gay groups want to. . . educate their own groups, they should use their
own money," Engler said at a news conference yesterday.
Meanwhile, an association of school district administrators yesterday
endorsed a policy on acquired immune deficiency syndrome adopted by
the state, praising its flexibility for local districts.
The State Board of Education Tuesday approved a document recom-
mending that local schools make case-by-case decisions on how to handle
youngsters with AIDS. The recommendations, which are merely ad-
visory, state that in most instances, children with AIDS should be admit-
ted to school.
Regarding the education guidelines, Engler said she soes not oppose
allowing AIDS victims to remain in school, but said it may open the
districts to lawsuits.
Teacher abducted in Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A French schoolteacher was kidnapped by gun-
men in Moslem west Beirut yesterday, sources at the French Embassy
said. No one claimed responsibility for his abduction.
Meanwhile, Paris sent top officials to Tehran in an effort to improve
relations with Iran, which has supported Shiite Moslem zealots in
Lebanon. Eight other Frenchmen have been abducted by Lebanese
Shiites who espouse Iranian-style Islamic fundamentalism.
Michel Brian, who taught at the College Protestant Francais in west
Beirut for six years, was the third Westerner to disappear iri that section
of the capital in less than two weeks.
French Embassy spokesman Francois Abi Saab would not confirm
Brian had been kidnapped, saying only: "The embassy is making all the
necessary contacts to investigate his fate."
But other embassy sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said
Brian was seized by gunmen near the Modca cafe on Hamra Street, west
Beirut's main thoroughfare, as he walked to school.
They said they had no other details on the number or identity of the
World population increases
WASHINGTON - World population will hit 4.9 billion at mid-year,
swell to 6.1 billion by 2000, and more than double the current level - ex-
ceeding 10 billion - by the end of the 21st century, the Population
Reference Bureau estimated yesterday.
The Bureau, a private research organization specializing in
demographic trends, said the increase will continue despite the fact the
global growth rate has passed its peak as national programs to control
the population explosion take effect.
China, with 1.05 billion people, remains the most populous nation with
21.3 percent of the world total, the report said, but India - now No. 2 with
785 million people - could surpass China by the year 2100 and have a total
population of 1.6 billion people if present trends in both countries con-
Challenger cabin intact
before hitting water
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla - Challenger's crew cabin structurally sur-
vived the Jan. 28 explosion and nine-mile plunge from the sky and then
shattered when it hit the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, a federal safety
expert reported yesterday.
However, experts do not believe the astronauts survived the fall to the
ocean. They believe the seven probably were killed instantly from the
shock of the explosion or from aerodynamic forces as the cabin tumbled
from the sky.
The nose section with the cabin inside broke cleanly away from the rest
of the shuttle and when it "struck the water, it had some mass inside; that
mass was the crew module," said Terry Armentrout, director of the
National Transportation Safety Board's bureau of accident investigation.
Armentrout said aerodynamic forces rather than the explosion caused
most of the intitial breakup of Challenger and that the 140-to-180 mph im-
pact with the water did the rest of the damage.
In fact, he said, there was no large explosion as everyone first believed.
He said it was more of a fireball and that the cloud of smoke and flame
resulted from the flames that flashed when liquid oxygen and liquid
hydrogen propellant mixed after the huge external fuel tank ruptured.

of the commission.
Students would be encouraged to
take three lecture courses and one
seminar during their first two years
at the University. Prof. Hugh Mon-
tgomery, a member of the com-
mission, said the series of courses will
lend more coherence to students'
'programs. "After the exposure to
these new courses, students will be
_better equipped to deal with their ad-
vanced courses," Montgomery said.
He said the commission has also
formulated "what we think a liberal
arts education is all about. A liberal
arts education is the art of understan-
ding and evaluating evidence and
A fundamental problem for LSA has
been the lack of such an "official,
clearly stated policy," Jack Meiland,
associate dean for long-range plan-
ning, wrote in a 1984 memo to the
college curriculum committee.
"THE LIBERAL arts education in-
volves factual knowledge, but what's
really important... is learning to learn.
One is preparing for a lifetime of
learning," Montgomery said.
The new courses will take advan-
tage of one strength of the University.
"What's special about U of M is the
distinguished research faculty.
Because we the faculty are such able
researchers, we can instruct un-
dergraduates how to interpret results.
That's the overall aim - to teach un-
dergraduates this art of evaluation,"
The SKILL program could cost LSA
up to 5 percent of its overall budget,
according to Montgomery. The
college may try to get financial sup-
port from outside the University in the
form of endowments, said Eagle.
Eagle said the idea for the SKILL
program is an original one that has
not been tried at other universities.

"There is no incentive to change
unless we apply constant pressure to
the status quo," said Jennifer Akfirat,
an LSA senior.
Some were dissatisfied with the
turnout. "I fell that it's a disgrace that
such a small percentage of the
minority population on this campus
attended the rally," said Mark Lewis,
an LSA sophomore. "It reflect~s
