Hispanic officials at state
colleges and universities are worried
that the wording of a new project to
increase minority enrollment will
make it difficult for Hispanic
students to benefit from the

Carlos Acevedo, a University

HE SAID ONE problem is
that the term "underrepresented
minority" hasn't been well-defined
by law or the University.
According to Acevedo, this is
particularly important for Hispanic
students in Michigan because
Hispanics make up about two
percent of the total state
population, but nationwide account
for about eight percent. Hispanic
students currently make up 1.8
percent of the University

GM annouces plants to close
DETROIT-General Motors Corp. will close 11 plants affecting
more than 29,000 workers in the next three years to reduce
overcapacity and cut operating losses, the company said in a long-
awaited announcement yesterday.
Closing the three stamping, one bod and seven final assembly
plants in four states will reduce GM's fixed costs by $500 million a
year, GM chairman Roger Smith said.
"These actions are absolutely necessary to maintain our
marketplace leadership and enhance the job security of the greater bulk
of our work force," GM President James McDonald said.
GM suffered third-quarter operating losses of about $338 million.
The closings announced yesterday were part of the first phase of a
reorganization and modernization at GM, and other assembly,
stamping engine and component plants are still being studied,
"It's a very constructive move on GM's part. I think as we go
forward there will be further closings," said industry analyst Gary
Glaser of First Boston Corp. in New York.
Reagan refuses to comment
on Lebanon hostage release
WASHINGTON-President Reagan yesterday tried to quell reports
that his administration helped win release of three hostages held in
Lebanon by aiding the transfer of defense supplies by Israel to Iran.
Israel, with the blessing of the White House, shipped Iran spare
parts and missles for U.S.-made F-4 jet fighters as well as parts for
American-made C-130 planes, radar and other war supplies, according
to the Los Angeles Times.
Reagan, asked by reporters whether he had a deal with Iran, said:
"No comment, but could I suggest an appeal to all of you with regard
to this, that specualtion, the commenting and all on a story that came
out of the Middle East ... one that to us has no foundation, that all
of that is making it more difficult for us in our effort to get the other
Small plane collides with jet
TAMPA, Fla.-A twin engine aircraft slammed head-on into a Pan
Am jet on a fog-shrouded airport taxiway yesterday and burst into
flames, killing the lone occupant of the small plane, officials said.
The pilot of the small plane, an Eastern Airlines captian who was
returning to duty, screamed "Oh my God! Oh my God!" as he spotted
and then tried to evade the jetliner, according to an airport worker.
The small plane skidded beneath the jet before exploding.
Aviation officials said four of the 23 people on the Pan American
World Airways plane received bumps and bruises as they evacuated by

Flight 301 to Miami was taxiing for a takeoff from Tampa
International Airport at 7:05 a.m. when the twin-engine Piper Aztec
crashed into it.
The small craft apparently was trying to land on the runway, he
said, "but instead of being lined up with the runway, it appears the
small aircraft was lined up with the taxiway."
Spy gets life imprisonment
BALTIMORE-Former Navy radioman John Walker, admitted
head of a family spy ring, was sentenced to life imprisonment
yesterday and his son Michael was given a 25-year term by a judge
who urged they be denied parole.
"Your task was to defend your country; you chose to betray it,
U.S. District Judge Alexander Harvey told the elder Walker, 49, who
received nearly $1 million from the Soviet Union for his spying.
"Your motive was pure greed and you were paid handsomely for
your traitorous acts," Harvey said.
The judge, a World War II veteran, expressed personal revulsion
that two enlisted servicemen could turn against their country, and
added, "In my opinion, your espionage activities have caused
tremendous harm to the national security of this country."
Con man hijacks helicopter;
frees woman from prison
PLEASONTON, Calif.-A con man, posing as a land developer,
hijacked a helicopter, flew to a federal prison and freed a woman
believed to be his girlfriend from 4the same prison he left a week
before, authorities said.
The pilot of the Hughes 500 D is believed to be Ronald McIntosh,
who was last seen Oct. 28 when he was dropped off at a bus station
for a solo trip to another prison, officials said.
The copter was found 15 miles south of the Federal Correctional,
Institution late Wednesday, about nine hours after it zoomed over a
30-foot fence, and bank robber Samatha Lopez climbed aboard, prison
There was no sign of either escapee at the helicopter, and Alameda
County sheriff's Lt. Dean Hess said it was undamaged. "It looked like
it was intentionally set down right there," he said.
