Women compete for leadership IN BRIEF
By GRACE LEE
Women corporate executives are
either trying too hard to become
"one of the guys" or are secluding
themselves within their work -
either way losing their identity, a
prominent author told about 50
people in Hale Auditorium
Marilyn Loden, a corporate
consultant and author of the book
Feminine Leadership: How to
Succeed in Business Without Being
One of the Boys, said females
should take an aggressive attitude in
their work, but not try to fit in by
changing their images.
"WOMEN need to be more
self-defining and take more risks,"
she said. "By encouraging them to
become themselves, we are able to
form a different kind of leadership
- and we need it."
Loden said that while working
as a corporate consultant she found
male workers and bosses had
difficulty accepting a woman in
positions of power, but neither was
willing to work to change their
"They simply ignore the
problems women are having in
trying to fit into the male-
dominated business world," she
BECAUSE male bosses are
apathetic about women executives,
many successful women try to
become "one of the boys" in order
to be accepted. These women
experience what Loden would call
"The Stages of Accomodation."
In the first stage she is the
"Fraternity Pledge," in which she
must conform to ways of dress and
speech. For example, women wear
suits not fancy, frilly dresses. They
also adapt "sports talk," to be
accepted by male peers. "You are
really just one of the guys," Loden
THE second stage, "Making the
First String," women simply do
whatever the guys like to do outside

of work: gamble, watch sports, or
just to be part of the group.
If women refuse to accept this,
they face a lonely life within their
work, or, what Loden calls the

opponents to assess the situation.
About 70 applauded the anti-
abortionists, and the same number
joined the pro-choice marchers,
doubling their original number.
At the demonstration's peak,
150 pro-choice supporters - two-
thirds of them women - turned to
face about 100 anti-abortionists,
who were predominently male.
The confrontation, despite cold
snowy winds, lasted more than an
SEVERAL children, bundled
against the cold, were brought to
bolster the anti-abortionist's cause.
One woman held a two-year-old
child and a sign reading, "Where

GATHERING at the opposite
end of the Diag, the pro-choice
activists began their own rally. "We
want full control over our own
bodies, our lives, our sexuality,"
said University employee Judy
Levy. "We will not go back to
back-alley abortions ever."
Cheering, the activists waved

China fires science off icials e:
PEKING - The two top officials of the Academy of Sciences were
fired yesterday, apparently becoming the latest victims of a campaign
against liberal Western ideas that began after student protests last
A brief dispatch by the official news agency Xinhua did not say why.,
President Lu Jiaxi of the academy, who is in his mid-60s, and Vice
President Yan Dongsheng, 68, had been relieved of their posts. It said
they "were removed" by decision of the National People's Congress -
Lu, a chemist of world stature trained in Britain, had been president
of the academy since August 1982. He was replaced by Zhou
Guangzhoa, 57, a theoretical physicist and one of the academy's three
Economy hits 4-year low
WASHINGTON - The U.S. economy, weighted down by a huge:
foreign trade deficit, turned in its worst performance in 1986 since the
last recession, the government reported yesterday.
The Commerce Department said the gross national product, the.
broadest measure of economic health, rose 2.5 percent last year, the
weakest growth rate since a 2.5 percent decline during the recession year
Economic growth during the final three months of the year was
reported at an annual rate of just 1.7 percent last year, the weakest growth
rate since a 2.5 percent decline during the recession year of 1982.
Economic growth during the final three months of the year was
reported at an annual rate of just 1.7 percent as consumer spending; thea:
mainstay of the four-year-old recovery actually fell.
W-4 form may be revised
WASHINGTON - Treasury Secretary James Baker said yesterday he
has asked the Internal Revenue Service to revise the new W-4 tax
withholding form, which has drawn complaints from Congress and
taxpayers over its complexity.
"We're going to take another look at the W-4 and see if we can't
come up with a better form by Oct. 1, chiefly because of the major,
changes in taxation brought about by the tax law that took effect Jan.
Taxpayers who wait until late in the year to complete the form could
face penalties if they discover that not nearly enough tax had been
Conjoined baby dies~ ins,

PHILADELPHIA - A 3-1/2-week-old twin boy died yesterday after
six hours of intricate surgery during which doctors separated him from
his stronger brother with whom he had shared a heart, liver and

lengthy procedure to save "Baby B" after "Baby A" succumbed. Th

Mike MacDonald is a computer programmer, a part-time model and
marathon bicyclist. But he'd rather be a nerd.
For $65 to $75 an hour, MacDonald becomes Hornby K. Fletcher,
nerd who wears taped glasses, a red plaid coat and blue plaid pants, hi
shirttail caught in his fly and a piece of toilet paper stuck on his neck
as if he had cut himself shaving.
"People call me and ask me to go to parties as their friend," saidl
MacDonald. "It's a different angle, and people are kind of charmed by
the idea. I don't do a skit. I just kind of play people who are."
MacDonald, 26, created Homby for Halloween. But after he got laid:
off from his computer programming job, he decided the nerd was so
much fun he'd like to go into the nerd business.
Rent-A-Nerd, which began Jan. 5, has slowly taken off. MacDonald
of the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, says he has about a half-dozen jobs,~
lined up, and calls are coming. He's also become a local media hit,
doing interview and call-in stints on talk shows.
