(Continued fronlPage 1)
When she first called to notify
maintenance of the problem, "They
never told me what was going on.
In the beginning, FIXIT didn't
know anything." According to
Rozsa, maintenance staff only
check those rooms in which they
suspect a probem.
TO EASE alarm at the
situation, George San Facon, direc-
tor of housing physical property,
said housing officials sent infor-
mation sheets to all students who
live in residence halls explaining
the presence of asbestos and 'its
hazards. Maintenance workers put
labels on pipes covered with the
dangerous substance.
Also, housing officials informed
students about the removal by
holding meetings at each dormitory.
San Facon said maintenance,
reached at 76-FIXIT, has received
about 200 calls from students
concerned about asbestos in their
rooms since this fall.
Because University maintenance
workers are not trained to remove
asbestos, they can only identify the
substance and "leave the repair to
the professionals," Monroe said.
University staff does not have the
resources - including money, time
and personnel - to handle the
problem, according to Monroe.
Maintenance workers currently put
each case on a list and the removal
company, Asbestos Removal Inc.,
responds to the worst cases first.
According to Dr. Bernard Naylor,
a medical school pathology
professor who has researched the
effects of asbestos, every adult in
this country has asbestos in their
lungs because of "background
levels" of the substance which
occurs naturally in the air.
Naylor has studied exposure to
the substance, and believes that
.,only people with "focused, occu-
pational exposure" to asbestos are
at a serious risk to becoming
victims of lung disease.

Student gets grant

to travel i
By WENDY LEWIS
The opportunity to travel around
the world does not come every day.
But one University student is going
to circumnavigate the globe this
spring.
Scott Fedewa, a Residential
College junior, is the 1986-1987
recipient of the University's Cir-
cumnavigators Club Foundation
Award.
The award is a $6,000 world
study and research grant presented to
a University junior every other
year. The purpose of the grant is to
gather factual, on-site information
relating to international human
relations. Each candidate is required
to submit a written proposal in
their particular area of study.
Fedewa's proposal, entitled
"Cross Cultural Conflicts and
American Business Customs," deals
with the behavior problems of
American business people abroad.
He said he hopes to "find the causes
and establish solutions to reduce
cross cultural conflict."
Fedewa will conduct his research
during a three-and-a-half-month trip

1w globe
beginning in May. He will travel to
Europe and Asia, where he will
observe the corporate behavior
patterns of different business lead-
ers. Upon his return to the United
States in August, Fedewa will have
approximately 90 days to complete
his thesis.
"I will study the things that
Americans in general have
problems with when they go over-
seas to work," Fedewa explained,
such as different styles of manage-
ment.
Fedewa will also research
patterns of nonverbal commun-
ication among the different conti-
nents, such as how Americans
make eye contact during conver-
sation. According to Fedewa, that
habit intimidates those who are not
used to such a custom.
The Foundation had over 25
candidates apply for this year's
award. That number was narrowed
to three finalists. Those included
Sunil John, a third year Engin-
eering student, and Anjanette
Stoltz, a third year Inteflex student.
