Psych. prof praises
By EUGENE PAK
Dr. Manuel Ramirez, a
pyschology professor at the
University of Texas-Austin
kicked off Hispanic Heritage
Celebration week at the
University last night by praising
Hispanic and other minority
student groups in his keynote
address to more than 60 students,
faculty, and administrators at the
Union last night.
Ramirez, who has studied
minority groups and minority
students in the United States,
Mexico, and Puerto Rico, believes
minority students have played an
important part in American
universities and communities.
"As I listened to (minority)
students talk about their
experiences at the University of
Texas. .. it became clear to me
that they were making more of a
contribution to the university than
the university was to them," said
Ramirez identified three
major ways minority students
contribute to American
universities: providing student
leadership, improving university
scholarship, and raising social
According to Ramirez,
minority students are active in
campus politics and instrumental
in encouraging other minority
students to remain in school by
providing support and guidance
"They did a lot more
counseling than the university
could ever do," he said.
According to Ramirez,
minority students have also
played an important part in
raising the social consciousness
of the university community as
many students act as liasons
between the university and the

environment" must extend into
the entire American society.
He emphasized that minorities
in the United States c-n play an
important role in international
business and politics because of
their understanding and
connections with Third World
But the key to creating a
multicultural society must begin
in the educational system, said
Ramirez, and he believes it is
"The work that Latin and other
minority students, faculty, and
staff is doing to change
educational institutions is
helping to create changes toward
a more multicultural and demo-
cratic society," he said at the close
of his speech.
Hispanic student enrollment
at the University has increased 25
percent over the last five years,
and now stands at 1.8 percent:1.4
percent for undergraduates, and
2.7 percent for graduate students.
Last fall 550 hispanic students
attended the University.
Associate Vice President for
Academic Affairs Niara Sudar-
kasa attributed the increase in
Hispanic student enrollment to
an increased recruitment effort
and Hispanic students helping
and guiding new students.

PARIS (AP)-The French,

terrorist bombs in their midst, are
trying to juggle normal routines
with new security steps that some
say play into the bombers' hands.

In the past eight days, four
bombings have killed'=a total of
three people and injured more
than 100. The most recent
bombing, on Monday, was inside
the central police station.
Even before Monday's
bombing, new anti-terrorist
measures were implemented,
including visa requirements for
visitors from all but the 12

countries and Switzerland.
The French, who tend not to
suffer officialdom lightly, quietly
submitted to opening bags and
even body searches at department
stores, theaters, restaurants, and
other public places.

Rape suspect arrested
Police have arrested an un -
identified man who they believe
assaulted two Ann Arbor women
late last week. He is currently
being held on $5,000 bond.
The suspect was arrested
Sunday on a prowling complaint
in the area where an Ann Arbor
woman was raped Thursday
morning, according to Detective
Tom Caldwell of the Ann Arbor
Police held a line-up Monday
because of the prowler's suspected
link to the rapes on Greenwood
and Ann streets. Both victims
identified him as their assailant.
The suspect is scheduled to be
arraigned today on two counts of
criminal sexual assault and three
counts of breaking and entering.
divisions. But "hypertension is a
major health problem in itself,"
said Dr. Brent Egan.
THE HYPERTENSION unit
was founded in 1946 by Dr. Sibley
Hoobler, who helped develop the
first effective anti-hypertensive
drug. Now the division treats
about 4,000 patients a year.
University researchers were
also the first in the nation to test a
new drug called ANF (atrial
natriuretic factor) in patients
with hypertension. The drug is a
natural substance made from
small granules found in the
heart, Friedo said.
The thickening of the heart,
which may lead to strokes or heart
attacks, is directly related to high
blood pressure. Although a
change in diet, weight loss, and
aerobic exercise may lower blood
pressure, most physicians prefer
to administer medication whicb
has proven to be effective.
