minoes
to provide
tiue test
for Blue
By MARK BOROWSKY
Ah, Homecoming.
At Michigan, Homecoming
traditionally means reminiscing
with old friends, heart-warming
walks through the diag, and the
Wolverines beating the crap out of
me third-division bozo.
ALTHOUGH traditions -
refined or otherwise - are hard to
change, Homecoming 1986 will be
different as Florida State rolls
into Michigan Stadium
tommorow at 12:30 to play the
Wolverines for the first time
ever.
The Seminoles (1-1-1 and
ranked 20th by the Associated
Press) aren't the usual sacrifical
fering for the alumni.
The Wolverines are a nine-
point favorite against the
Seminoles. Obviously, the
oddsmakers haven't seen
Michigan's first two games,
lackluster performances against
supposedly inferior teams. In
both, it was impossible to tell if
Michigan played at the
competition's level or if, god
forbid, they just aren't that good.
TOMMOROW'S game should
ustrate the correct point of view.
Despite its .500 record, Florida
State is Michigan's toughest
contest to date. When its game is
on, meaning that it plays
suffocating defense and a
balanced offense, Florida State
looks mighty fine-and a lot like
Michigan. Bo Schembechler is
mighty worried-imitation may
lead to the Wolverines'first loss.
"The key to beating them is
'ow well our defense plays," the
Michigan head coach said. "Our
defense has got to tighten up. We
can't let this team (Florida State)
possess the football like the last
two have done to us.
"I'm not sure whether we can
do that or not."

Tax reform
passes by

big

margin

Policy center studies

WASHINGTON (AP)-The
House of Representatives voted
292-136 yesterday for landmark
legislation that would change the
way most Americans pay their
income taxes while shifting a big
share of the burden to cor-
porations.
The bill was hailed as the most
thorough income-tax revision
ever. The political breakdown:
176 Democrats and 116
Republicans voted yes; 74
Democrats and 62 Republicans
voted no, with many of them
expressing concern about the
bill's impact on an economy
plagued by sluggish growth.
THE MARGIN of victory for
the measure was more over-
whelming than even its
staunchest supporters had pre-
dicted. Some had forecast it
would pass by 30 to 50 votes.
White House spokesman
Larry Speakes said Reagan
"welcomes today's vote by the
house."
Rep. Dan Rostenkowski (D-
Ill.), a chief author of the bill,
said, "We are going to let the
American people know that their
legislative process is working,
that when they request of their
leaders in Washington a change,
that we respond."
THE LEGISLATION, he
added, responds to a public
demand "that the family down the
street or the corporation across
town can't beat the system any
longer."

"We must not pass up this
historic opportunity to make a
contribution to those elements of
the American economy that have
long been neglected: the working
poor, the family, labor, and
capital," said Rep. Jack Kemp (R-
N.Y.).
The bill would cut individual
and corporate tax rates deeply and
eliminate or reduce several
deductions and exclusions, in-
cluding those for Individual
Retirement Accounts, consumer
interest, and sales taxes. On the
average, individual taxes would
be cut about 6.1 percent - less
than $4 a week - and more than 6
million working poor would be
dropped from the tax rolls.
Several million, couples and
individuals would face tax
increases.
OV E-R the next five years,
corporations would pay a $120
billion greater share of the tax
burden and business would lose a.
major incentive for job-creating'
investments - changes that
worry some lawmakers and
economists.
Some congressmen spoke
against the measure -
expressing fears that it would
damage an already sluggish
economy, impose another burden
on the middle class, or' destroy
jobs in their districts.
Rep. Bill Archer (R-Texas),
said, "There is both good and bad
in this bill. The the risks

Organ
By ELLEN FIEDELHOLTZ
The University Medical
Center's Organ Transplant
Policy Center, the only such
center in the-nation, goes beyond
the traditional medical aspects of
transplants to study other factors:
psychological effect, costs of
transplantation, organ
availability, delivery systems,
and ethical issues.
Organ transplants are the only
effective treatment for many

rans lantation

diseases and are being performed
with increasing frequency and
success. The Unversity Medical
Center, for example, performs 100
kidney transplants annually,
according to Jeremiah Turcotte,
director of the policy center.
ALONG with the increasing
popularity of organ transplants
come complex social and ethical
issues. According to Arthur
Caplan, an authority on ethical
issues and organ transplants who

spoke at the University last week,
the public views organ
transplantation with awe, but also
believes some physicians make
organ transplant decisions
unfairly.
According to Dave Friedo,
public relations director of the
University Hospitals, incidents
such as this year's "Baby Jesse"
case have fostered this view.
Friedo said that the baby was

ew building cramps students

By ROB EARLE
The new Electrical
Engineering and Computer
Science (EECS) building will be
dedicated tomorrow on time and
within its $30 million budget, but
some students are complaining
bout cramped classrooms,
nadequate parking, and
inefficient busing to the North
Campus structure.
The building features a Solid
State Electronics Laboratory
capable of producing advanced
electronics microchips in an
environment free of dust.
IT ALSO houses laboratories
for developing computers capable
of diagnosing human illnesses,
nd designing machines that can
interpret visual input, much like
thi- human brain interprets what
.ne eyes perceive.
The EECS was completely
funded by the state, though the
University must provide $10
million more to equip the labs.
Some students complain that
the EECS is too far away and that
it lacks parking places.
"WE DO need some parking,"
Said one electrical engineering

senior who asked not to be
identified.
"On Central Campus it's
understandable," he said. "But
there's plenty of room up here."
Erdogan Gulari, the College of
Engineering's associate dean for
academic affairs, said 100 paid
parking spaces were opened up for
students behind North Campus
Commons, with more planned in
the future. He also noted there
were two commuter lots available
with no charge for parking.
ASSISTANT Parking
Operations Manager Max Smith
said there are several spaces
available for students in the
commons lot that remain unsold.
Smith said the adoption of a
permit system for parking at
family housing units on North
Campus also contributes to the
parking shortage.
"Students used to park there for
free," Smith said, "but then there
was no place for the residents to
park."
Another problem is crowded
North Campus buses because
more Engineering classes were
moved to the EECS.

"THE BUSES are very
overcrowded," said electrical
engineering senior Keith
Korecky. Students are frequently
forced to stand in the aisles.
University Transportation
officials refused to comment.
Gulari said most engineering
classes have been moved to North
Campus, and all are expected to
meet there next term.
Many students like the new
building, but complain about
classrooms being too small.
"THE engineers have always
had shitty buildings," said one
electrical engineer. He said one
class he had in West Engineering
his freshman year was cancelled
because a light fell out of the
ceiling.
He added that he saw a
professor pull a projection screen
out of the ceiling in one of the new
EECS classrooms the first week of
classes.
Despite the problems, officials
have scheduled the building's
dedication for tonight at 8:30, in
the midst of Homecoming

Chavez
calls for
boycott
of grapes
By EUGENE PAK
Cesar Chavez, president and
founder of The United Farm
Workers, last night urged
Americans to boycott grapes to
help supp1t the plight of migrant
farm workers.
Spealing before an
enthusiastic capacity audience at
Rackham Amphitheater, Chavez,
59, expined that pesticides used
to preserve grapes harm both farm
workers and consumers.
THE UFW is focusing its
efforts on abolishing the use of
five pesticides, including Captan,
a carcinogen which is designed to
"preserve the life of the grapes
