National
chain buys
Ulrich's
bookstore
By RICHARD KANG
Area book stores are tensely
keeping their eyes on the prices at
Ulrich's as the ownership of the
fifty-two year old store changes
hands.
Ulrich's, which has been
privately owned since 1934, was
recently sold to a national chain
called Nebraska Book Co. This
leaves the University Cellar as
the only major privately-owned
bookstore in Ann Arbor that sells
textbooks for Univesity courses.
PAUL ROSSER, Ulrich's
general manager, refused to say
why Ulrich's was sold and the
former owner was unavailable
for comment.
The Nebraska Book Co. is a
national chain and it is possible
that it could artificially deflate
book prices in order to gain a
competitive edge.
Both the University Cellar and
Ulrich's reduce the price of books
by 5 percent for students and staff,
but Jane Self, University Cellar's
general manager said.
"(Ulrich's) will never be any
more powerful than they already
were. I don't think they could go
any lower than 5 percent or 7
percent."
SELF ADDED that sales this
year are "fine, slightly better than
last year." She also said students

scientists increase

AIDS research

By MARTIN FRANK
University researchers expect to
do an increasing amount of
Acquired Immune Deficiency
Syndrome research in the next few
years to combat the disease.
"We will try to increase the
! range of research opportunities in
an effort to slow down the spread of
the disease," said June Osborn,
dean of the School of Public Health.
OSBORN PLANS to increase the
amount of research projects by
holding a mini-course in

November to let the faculty know
about "the many research
opportunities available to them."
Thecourse is also open to students
and staff.
Currently, there is no cure for
the 21,517 Americans who have
AIDS. The disease, once thought to
be transmitted mainly by
intravenous drug use and
homosexual activity, can now
transmitted heterosexually. About
1,400 of the AIDS victims are
women, and half of them have no

history of intravenous drug use,
according to a study by the Public
Health Service, a national health

organization.
One AIDS research project
underway at the University was
initiated by Assisstant Professor of
Epideminolgy Jill Joseph. Her
project, entitled "Behavioral Risk
Reduction," involves the
behaviorial, psychological, and
social consequences of people at
risk of catching AIDS.
During the past six months,
Joseph studied 1,000 homosexual
and bisexual men in Chicago's
Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study in

an effort to find behavioral patterns
for people at risk for AIDS.
This study concentrated on
changes in their sexualbehavior
and new beliefs~ of how' their peers'
act sexually.
THE REPORTfound that the
men were aware of the danger of
AIDS and were taking steps to
reduce the risk getting it. There
was little change,however, in the
absolute avoidance of sex and in
the avoidance of receptive anal
intercourse.

"Few individuals were celibate
and fewer still were choosing to
become celibate," Joseph said in
her report.
The biggest changes among the
sample was that 50.7 percent of the
pool avoided anonymous sexual
partners, but only 17.6 percent of the
pool were monogamous.
The report concluded that sexual
impulse and the belief that a cure
for AIDS will soon be found
hindered some of the men from

Drug testing policy seems unlikely

r ByJIM ERSHISER
It is unlikely that the
University will adopt a drug
testing policy for all employees,
according to some University
professors and other employees
interviewed yesterday.
Employees are concerned,
however, about the civil rights
questions raised by such a policy.
"I would be astonished if any
serious considerations were to be
given to a universal mandatory
system," said Law School Dean
Terrance Sandalow.

Judy Levy, chief steward of the
American Federation of State,
County, and Municipal
Employees Local 1583, a union
which includes 2,200 University
employees, said the University
could use such a policy selectively
to oust a "troublemaker" or
intimidate employees. Levy said
her opinions did not necessarily
represent the stance of the union.
Levy said the Reagan
Administration's compliance
with a drug test is the begining of
a "nationwide attempt, through

intimidation, to prevent workers
from fighting for the wages and
working conditions that they
deserve."
She said that if the University
attempts to implement any type of
policy that would be able to violate
an employee's rights or privacy,
"they will have a fight on their
hands if they try to do it."
Others at the University,
however, consider drug testing
overrated, especialy in the press.

'U' Dems. seek student regent

By MITZI LAWRENCE
University students and
county Democrats are continuing
their efforts to secure a student
seat on the Board of Regents, the
University's governing board.
A resolution calling for the
additional seat was tabled at the
State Democratic Convention last
month after passing through the
county convention during the
summer.

ACCORDING TO Institute of
Public Policy junior Andrew
Asher, the resolution called. for
"the creation of an extra seat on
the governing Boards at U of M,
Michigan State, and Wayne State
University." Asher is heading
the college Democrat committee
that wrote the resolution. He said
the resolution provided -for the
student regents to be elected by
their respective student bodies for

a two-year term. A two-year term
would allow the students to
familiarize themselves with-
university issues and gain
credibility while keeping the post
from monopolizing their college
years.
Sheila Cumberworth,
chairwomen of the Washtenaw
County Democrats, said the
proposal is valid and "definitely
