MSU students build
anti-apartheid shanty

EAST LANSING (AP) - A
ramshackle shanty in front of
Michigan State University's ad-
ministration building is a symbol
of opposition to South Africa's
policy of racial segregation, said
critics who erected the shanty.
The shanty was hammered
together Monday in an attempt to
persuade the Michigan State
University Foundation, a university
fund-raising entity, to get rid of its
$500,000 in investments in
companies doing business in South
Africa.

"We're trying to get to their
(foundation board members')
conscience," said Ken Harrow, a
Michigan State humanities pro-
fessor who said the foundation
needs to realize divestiture has
support on campus.
PROTESTER Shawn Neville,
a junior, said, "It will be visible for
10 days - it will get some interest
going on campus."
The foundation will review its
investments in the spring, said

Michigan State University Pres-
ident John DiBiaggio, a foundation
member.
"I think divestiture has to be
seriously considered if South Africa
doesn't rapidly take action to
change its system of government,"
DiBiaggio said. "I think that's what
we're all hoping for."
Michigan State divested itself of
South African investments in 1978.
The foundation, which collects
private donations to the university,
is a separate legal entity, officials
said.

Shuttle test ends prematurely

Edward Perkins arrives yesterday to begin work as the first black American Ambassador to South Africa, a
day after the white-led government rebuked the United States by rejecting an official visa request. Perkins
made no comment to reporters at Jan Smuts Airport in Johannesburg beyond saying he was "glad to be in
South Africa."
City faes homeless problem

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.
(AP)-A practice countdown with
five astronauts aboard space shuttle
Atlantis ended yesterday 31 seconds
short of a simulated engine ignition
after problems developed with
computer software.
Despite the problems, said
NASA spokesman Jim Ball, "it is
considered to be a successful test."
Most of the problems stemmed
from part of the software written
especially for the test that wouldn't
have been used in a real launch, he
said.
The exercise, which included five
astronauts who flew the last
successful shuttle mission, was to
have ended with a mock engine
ignition, followed by an engine
failure and shutdown to give the
crew and launch teams experience
handling an emergency.

Randy Skeete of the Salvation
Army said the city estimates
conservatively that there are 250
homeless in the city. The Salvation
Army shelter, Arbor House, only
admits 18 bed spaces, and the other
a 420 W. Huron St. is only
allowed to admit 50.

"If they really really wanted to
address it (the lack of affordable
housing in Ann Arbor), they would
allocate monies to address the
problem of low-income housing,"
King said.
William Hampton, assistant
director of community develpment
for the city, said a lack of affordable

housing is a definite problem.
Randy Skeets of the Salvation
Army, a social worker for the
shelter, said he hopes the program
will sensitize people to the fact that
there is an acute progblem with the
homeless, since there is no
affordable housing in the city for
them.

Engineers were concerned the test there.

Four members of the University

protested the rule against conferring
honorary degrees in absentia.
Mandela degree advocates
appeared frustrated that the
