animals in jeopardy
NEW YORK (AP) - Nearly all
national parks in western North
America have lost some species of
animals, chiefly because the lands
were too small to sustain them, and
the trend may continue unless
action is taken, a researcher says.
Within the 14 park areas studied,
42 populations of mammals have
disappeared, wrote researcher Will -
iam Newmark, a graduate student at
the University of Michigan School
of Natural Resources.
"Without active intervention by
park managers, it is quite likely
that a loss of mammalian species
will continue," Newmark wrote in
today's issue of the British journal
To reduce future loss, park
officials will probably need to start
more special programs for the park
animals and to effectively enlarge
parks by buying land or,
coordinating activities on adjacent
lands, he said.
Newmark, who did the research
as part of a doctoral thesis at the
School of Natural Resources, stud -
ied national parks and groups of
adjoining parks in the Rocky
Mountains, Sierra-Cascades, and
The parks and groups were Bryce
Canyon, Crater Lake, Glacier-
Waterton Lakes, Grand Canyon,
Grand Teton-Yellowstone, Lassen
Volcanic, Mount Rainier, Olympic,
Rocky Mountain, -Sequoia-Kings
Canyon, Yosemite, and Zion, and
Yoho and Manning Provincial.
Using park records and other
published sources, he studied
sightings of such animals as rab -
bits, wolves, bears, mink, otters,
deer, elk, goats, and other mammals
for which sighting records were
Only the largest area studied, the
group along the border of the
provinces of Alberta and British
Columbia, still contained all the
mammal types present when the
parks were established, he wrote.
Other parks had lost some
populations of such species as griz-
zly bears, wolves, lynx, gray fox,
bighorn sheep, jackrabbits, skunks,
wolverines, otters, mink, raccoons,
and pronghorn antelope, he found.
Alcohol found in wrestler's car

The car accident that critically
injured University wrestler Mike
Murdoch Saturday night may have
been alcohol-related, according to
Montrose Township police.
Murdoch remains in critical
condition at Saginaw St. Mary's
Hospital with internal and head
According to Montrose
Township Patrol Officer Jeff
Young, open containers containing
alcohol were found in Murdoch's
car. The crash is currently under
investigation, and criminal charges
against Murdoch are pending.
The accident occurred when
Murdoch failed to stop at a stop
sign as he was making a U-turn on
Nichols road near his Montrose
home. A pickup truck struck
Murdoch's car broadside.
Murdoch's car was pushed 120
feet sideways after impact. It took
the Montrose County Township
Fire Department 40 minutes to pry
Murdoch out of the wreckage.
According to Young, Murdoch is
a local celebrity in Montrose
because of his athletic ability.
"It was a tremendous shock to
the community... When I got done
with the accident, I just wanted to
cry," he said.

With, the presentation of the
budget proposal, many state
officials broke their previous
silence and expressed opinions of
Blanchard's plan to divide $15
million of the public colleges'
funds amongst the schools using a
formula based on what peer
institutions nationwide are getting.
In his budget statement,
Blanchard said, "The current method
of across-the-board increases for
each of the institutions does not
take into 'consideration the contri-
butionof each on the future of
Blanchard also said the present
system does not differentiate the
needs and the goals of each
SCHAEFER said Blanchard
will withhold the details of the
formula until the legislature agrees
with the concepts behind the plan.
William Sederburg (R-East
Lansing), chairman of the state
senate subcommittee for higher
education, said he wants to see the
details of the plan before deciding
on its merits, but he added that he
likes the plan's approach to
funding. "It's the way all
appropriations should be handled,"
According to Sederburg, the plan
would have little impact on the
schools involved because the $15
million the formula would

However, he says if Arabs currently
living in Israel wish to stay, they
must revoke their citizenship.
"If Arabs want to stay, they can.
But they can't be citizens," Kahane
said. While he is prepared to let
them keep their social, political,
and religious rights, he insists they
may not vote or influence
government decisions. He said his
dislike for Arabs is not racist.
"If they aren't prepared to accept
this, they can go," he said.
Ann Arbor resident and
University of Detroit Prof. Susan
Rodriguez said, "It is not healthy
for the Jewish state or for the
Middle East situation to have this
type of bigotry."
Wayne State Prof. Ronald
Aronson added, "He (Kahane) is
what we Jews have been fighting
against for our entire history. But
he is a Jew, which is even more
horrifying. It is important that Jews
distribute is a small percentage of
the total allotment.
The budget also calls for a $1.2
million increase for the Research
Excellence Fund. This money
would be divided among the state's
four research institutions -
