A complaint filed against the
University by LSA senior Gary
Sugarman charging that he lost a
scholarship due to discrimination will
most likely not go to trial, according
to Sugarman's attorney.
Jean King, director of the
Washtenaw County branch of the
American Civil Liberties Union, said
she still believes the Michigan Depar-
tment of Civil Rights, which is in-
vestigating the charges, will find
'probable cause for discrimination."
She predicted, however, thaf the
University will settle the case out of
SUGARMAN'S complaint
originated after he lost a scholarship
from the Power Foundation to study
at Cambridge University in England
because of a clause in the foundation's
rules stating that applicants must be
R nmarried. He plans to marry his
igh school sweetheart, Tammy Karp
in July.
Sugarman has said he thought this
rule meant he had to stay unmarried
during the application period. Only af-
ter he won the scholarship, he said, he
did he learn that he could not get
married during the entire two years of
the scholarship. When Sugarman
refused to comply, he scholarship was
SUGARMAN filed his complaint

against the University because the
Honors Program plays a direct role in
the application and selection process.
His complaint claims this violates the
Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act of 1976,
which forbids public institutions from
discriminating on the basis of
religion, race, color, or marital
"No one has given a rational ex-
planation for this rule," said King,
who called the clause a "medieval
Margaret Massialas, the Power
Foundation's executive secretary,
refused to comment on the complaint.
She called it a University problem
because of the Honors Program's in-
volvement. David Shapiro, director of
the Honors Program, also declined to
In a meeting with executives of the
Power Foundation, Sugarman said he
was told of two Power scholars who
had married after their first year of
the program and of another who had
been married when he won the
scholarship but did not tell anyone un-
til arriving in England. All three were
allowed to keep their scholarships, he
He has asked that either the
University change the rule regarding
marital status or that it disassociate
itself completely from the Power
scholarships. He now plans on going
to law school and said he would refuse
the Power scholarship if it was finally
offered to him as a settlement.

Nurses will not be trained to ad-
minister anesthesia at the University
after students currently enrolled the
two-year program complete their
studies. The University Board of
Regents passed the measure by a 6-2
vote last Friday.
Faculty members in the
anesthesiology department earlier
this year unanimously agreed to the
discontinuance of the Certified
Registered Nurse Anesthesia (CRNA)
program. The CRNA program is in
the department of anesthesiology.
Currently 14 nurses are enrolled in the
67-year old CRNA plan.
BOTH MEDICAL doctors and nur-
ses can be trained to administer
anesthestics. Nurses are called nurse
anesthetists and have less training
than the doctors, called
Faculty members in the depar-
tment of anesthesiology say teaching
the nurses takes away from time
professors could use to do research or
teach medical students. There are 20
medical students and 35 faculty
members in the department. There
was not a financial factor involved, of-
ficials said.
Some nurses in the program, who
have bachelors degrees and have
worked as nurses for at least one year
prior to acceptance into the CRNA
program, say doctors don't want nur-
ses to administer anesthetics to

patients. Other nurses in the program
say doctors don't want nurse
anesthetists to compete with
anesthesiologists for jobs.
"I'M DISAPPOINTED, but there's
always the hope that they will revive
the program in the future," said Mary
Jean Yabklonky, assistant director of
the CRNA program.
George Zuidema, vice provost for
medical affairs, said the University
Hospital would continue to hire the
same amount of nurse anesthetists.



Seven of 11 protesters still facing
charges because of their involvement
in a demonstration against CIA
recruitment on campus last October
agreed Friday to an arrangement of-
fered by the county prosecutor. Under
the agreement, all charges against
the defendants will be dropped in ex-
change for payment of a portion of thex
court costs or a small amount of.,
community service.
The 11 protesters are among 26
protesters arrested at thedemon-.
stration last fall. The other 15
protesters were either acquitted or
had all charges dropped against,

Dartmouth president

regrets len
tmouth College President David
McLaughlin, his administration ac-
cused by conservatives of unfairly
disciplining students, said he regrets
the leniency shown anti-apartheid
In a letter to 42,000 alumni, parents
and friends of the Ivy League college,
McLaughlin said he was sorry that
nearly 200 students who occupied ad-
Winistration offices and 17 anti-apar-
theid protesters arrested in a
separate campus disturbance were
not given "meaningful penalties."
A SPOKESMAN for the Dartmouth

Community for Divestment, a college
anti-apartheid group, said Saturday
he had received the letter but had no
immediate comment.
Members of the group and other an-
ti-apartheid protesters occupied ad-
ministration offices earlier this year
to protest campus racism and the
college's $63 million investments
linked to segregated South Africa.
The Committee on Standards, a
college disciplinary panel, found the
students guilty of violating campus
regulations and reprimanded about
150 of them while not punishing the

Blacks rise in military

have been more successful moving up
the career ladder into leadership
positions in the armed forces than in
any other major segment of U.S.
society, according to a Northwestern
University sociologist.
Although racial tensions still exist
in the military, the services - notably
the Army - have made greater
strides toward equality than most of
the civilian sector, says sociologist

Charles Moskos, who specializes in
the military.
"Today, one is more likely to hear
racial jokes in a faculty club than in
an officer's club. And in an officers'
club one will surely see more blacks,"
Moskos wrote in an article published
in the May issue of The Atlantic
Moskos, who is white, says he has
trackedrace relations inthe Army
since 1956, when he was drafted for a
two-year hitch.
