ROTC head denies charges

The United States Army is
investigating charges that the
head of the Reserve Officers
Training Corps at the University
ignored widespread abuses by.
Army special agents in South
Former special agent Joseph
Ditzhazy told The Daily that
counter-intelligence agents in
South Korea jeopardized national
security by abusing their power,
thus leaving themselves
vulnerable to blackmail.
Ditzhazy accused Lt. Col. Charles
Narburgh, head of ROTC, and
several others of ignoring those

simply bitter because an informal
Army investigation found that the
charges were without merit.
"He's trying to get even by

embarassing me and affecting

in South Korea to counter terrorist
operations and crack spy rings.
Before leaving Korea in May,
Ditzhazy filed a 35-page document
with the Army's Office of the
Inspector General charging that
special agents in Korea regularly
abused drugs and alcohol, got into
fistfights with South Koreans, and
flashed special agent badges to
avoid detainment by South
Korean police.
ARMY regulations specify that
special agent badges are only to be
used in the course of an
investigation. The penalty of
their misuse can be dismissal.
Ditzhazy claimed that he saw

and slap her when she resisted.

Architecture dean will stress design

The new Dean of the College of
chitecture and Urban Planning will
stress the artistic side of architecture
and hopes to develop professional
contacts for students.
Robert Beckley, who will become
dean Jan. 1., said he would like to see a
continuation of the college's new stress
on the design, or artistic, aspect of
architecture, over the structural, or
engineering aspect. He plans to
augment the college's strength in the
mstructural aspects of architecture with a

design-orrented program.
"DESIGN is what's central to the
profession of architecture and
planning," Beckley said. "And
essentially everything else supports
Another of Beckley's priorities is
establishing additional professional
contacts for students seeking
internships and jobs. This priority is
part of his plan to improve training for
both graduate and undergraduate
students and attract top students to the

Beckley was an assistant and
associate professor at the University
from 1963 to 1969. Since then he has
taught at the University of Wisconsin
at Milwaukee, where he helped design
the architecture curriculum. He has a
completely different vision of the new
curriculum at the University, however,
and says he doesn't want to remake the
University's program in the image of
Wisconsin' s.
"I'M NOT going to throw out the
baby with the dishwater," he said. "To
turn the program 360 degrees is silly in

my mind."

Beckley would like to make the
college's programs more flexible, so
that someone with an undergraduate
major in something besides
architecture could get into the school's
graduate program. "My goal is to break
these barriers," Beckley said.
Currently, the college encourages a
"2-2-2" course . of study in which
students spend two years studying
liberal arts, two years completing the
undergraduate architecture
requirements, and two years earning a

BEAKLEY will succeed retiring
Dean Robert Metcalf, who was
appointed in 1974.
Beckley was selected for his
experience and national reputation in
both the research and practical areas of
architecture, according to James
Duderstadt, the University's vice-
president for academic affairs.
He has received over a dozen awards
for his work, including an award from
the National Endowment for the Arts

Miliken, Blanchard
share recovery role

Student overnment
fills committee sts

Michigan's economic recovery
can be attributed to a strategy
developed by former GOP Gov.
William Milliken and picked up
by Democratic ;Gov. James
Blanchard, according to a
University study released
Milliken's "creation strategy"
involved pushing high-
technology research in the state,
providing money for business
expansion, and investing public
pension funds in ways that
created jobs, according to Institute
for Social Research Prof. John
Jackson, who wrote the study.
MILLIKEN attempted to create
new industries in Michigan
through various programs ,
Jackson said. The former Gov.
combined the creation strategy
with strategies of maintaining
the state's existing businesses
0 and attracting others to
Michigan, Jackson said.
Under Blanchard the
maintenance and attraction
strategies have been reoriented to
supplement the creation strategy,
Jackson said. "(Blanchard) has
really picked up and emphasized
creation strategy," he added.
The continuity between
administrations has been an
important factor in Michigan's
comeback, said the study, which

was funded by the Committee for
Economic Development, a non-
profit organization of business
and education officials. And no
matter who is in the governor's
office next year, creation strategy
should be continued, Jackson
"MICHIGAN'S economic
future really has to be tied up in
this creation strategy," he said.
"You cant keep jerking around. .
.The creation strategy is really
a long-term strategy." It takes
five to 10 years to see such an
economic approach pay off, he
In the study, Jackson links
Michigan's industrial history to
creation strategy. Michigan
started without industry until the
creation of manufacturing
industries, agriculture, and the
automobile industry, he said. It is
only logical and practical that
Michigan continue this,
according to Jackson.
Long-term planning,
confidence between the state's
business community and state
government, and continuity
between administrations are the
primary factors for Michigan's
comeback, Jackson summarized.
THE cooperation between a
Republican administration and
the succeeding Democratic
administration is explained by
the fact that Milliken was a "very

The three student positions on
the LSA Curriculum Committee
were filled by LSA Student
Government yesterday,
according to LSA-SG President
Michelle Tear. The names of the
appointees will be released
Friday after the committee
members and the appointees are
All of LSA-SG's appointments
have now been filled except for
one open position on the Michigan
Student Assembly.
THE curriculum committee is
perhaps the most important LSA
committee in which student are

allowed to participate. It meets
every Tuesday and makes
recommendations on academic
matters to the executive
committee, the college's top body.
The curriculum committee
consists of nine voting faculty
members, three voting student
members, and a number of non-
voting faculty and college
administration members.
The student representatives
have been absent from all four
curriculum committee meetings
this year because they were not
appointed until last night.
THE STUDENT government
chose to appoint its

representatives in the fall, rather
than the spring, in order to allow
freshmen to participate.
Consequently, there was a delay
as applications were taken and
applicants were interviewed.
In the last two weeks the
curriculum committee has taken
up the issues of course credit hours
and the college's foreign
language requirement. No
actions were taken, but committee
members expect an ongoing
series of discussions on the topics.

competitive entrepreneurship,
Jackson said.
"Also there is somewhat of a bi-
partisan tradition in Michigan,"
he added.
Jackson does not give all the
credit for the state's economic
recovery to President Reagan, but
he does admit that Michigan's
comeback is tied to the national
"Clearly the national recovery
has helped Michigan's economy,"
Jackson said. The national
recovery has allowed the

Theater receive
The Kresge Foundation will present a $150,000
matching grant to the Michigan Theater later this
month, following the theater's successful campaign
to raise the $1.56 million to qualify for grant.
Renovations should be completed by the end of this
month, according to Roger Hewett, project director of
operations for the theater. The Michigan Theater
has been "showing a different film every night,"
since it opened Sept. 20, Hewett said.
THE THEATER was built in 1928 to showcase
silent movies. In 1984, the theater embarked on a
year-long fund raising drive to raise money to

and improve mechanical and safety features.
Work is also being done refinishing chairs and
walls in the auditorium and foyer. Carpet
installation, however, will be delayed until the
beginning of next year, Hewett said.
"The restoration is approximately 85 to 90 percent
complete, with most of the remaining work to be
completed by the end of October," he said.
The theatre received a grant from the Kresge
Foundation "based partly on the request, and partly
on the amount needed to complete the project,"
