factor, as other schools are. The
quality of financial aid packages
could tip the scales for highly
recruited students, especially in the
non-professional schools, the report
"Michigan is such a good (law)
school that people are willing to go
into debt to come to Michigan,"
said Law School financial aid
officer Katharine Gottschalk.
THE REPORT commented
that without adequate aid programs,
the University's graduate schools
"are in danger of losing their

hopes to revamp aid

Compiled from Associated Press reports

statures as nationally recognized
professional schools." High non-
resident tuition and relatively poor
aid packages could lead to the
University becoming a "regional
training" center.
"I think Michigan is a national
leader in education," said D'Arms.
"Very few of us (administrators and
faculty) want to be anything else."
Other recommendations of the
report, if implemented, would
shorten the length of time students
spend as teaching assistants, would
provide funds to bring students to
campus to visit with faculty in a

recruitment effort, and would hire
additional staff to coordinate aid
information through Rackham.
The report also Addressed the
need for setting up a type of
counseling for students who have
accumulated a large debt over the
course of their graduate education.

The Law School was singled out
for its debt counseling efforts.
According to the report, the average
level of debt ranges between $4,500
and $12,000. In the fields of
dentistry and medicine, this figure
can rise to over $70,000.

Duderstadt disc usses
racism with students


The Ann Arbor Police are
investigating the death of 34-year-
old man who was found dead in his
apartment on the 400 block of
Ashley St. Sunday night, according
to Lt. Harold Tinsey. Detectives
estimate David Eighmey died early
Saturday morning. Although the
exact cause of death is unknown,
Eighmey's head had been severely
beaten. An autopsy is scheduled for
today. Eighmey worked as a janitor
for the Michigan Union's

maintenance office.
An unidentified burglar entered a
building in the 800 block of
Dooley St. and took items valued
around $600, according to Ann
Arbor Police Sgt. Jan Suomala.
The perpetrator entered the building
through an unlocked door and
escaped with a VCR, a man's
jacket, and videotaped movies
sometime between early Friday
evening and Saturday morning.

aggressive stance on the issue.
"We felt it would be important
for the University. to make a
statement that this (incident) is
unacceptable at the highest level of
administration," said Barbara
Ransby, a graduate student.
Students at the meeting also said
the flier violated housing leases
because it threatened residents, and
called for the guilty parties to be
expelled from the dorm, if caught.
"If you can remove a student for
sexual threats or assault, it seems
you should be able to remove a
student for this," said James
McGee, an LSA senior.
Duderstadt said he was "not
aware if housing or the Vice
President for Student Services has
information about who did it."
He added that he would have to
check with them and the University
Council to determine what
authority and ability the University
would have to punish perpetrators.
He said he would need to consult
the other executive officers about an
official condemnation.

Duderstadt said action must go
beyond a public condemnation of
the incident and that the University
is planning to implement a number
of programs, including the recently
unveiled $1 million affirmative
action initiative, to combat racism
on campus and increase minority
student enrollment.
"We are working on it right now
and making it stronger than just a
personal statement, but a policy
statement of the executive officers
and the president," Duderstadt said.
WHILE students agreed that
such minority programs must be
implemented and expanded, they
also felt that a statement from the
administration as well as a formal
investigation was necessary to
curtail further racial controversies
and clarify the University's position
on racism.
Students also proposed that the
University implement a program on
racism at orientation, create a more
centralized and powerful minority
affairs office, and require a course
focusing on different cultures.
Duderstadt said he would be
proposing a list of minority affairs
programs to the University's Board
of Regents at their March meeting,
and welcomed students' input.
"I'm not aware of a lot of things
at the University and I think it's
true of a lot of executive officers,
but that's why I want to talk with
you," Duderstadt said.
Kan dis Kumasi, LSA
sophomore, said the failure to reach
a level of 10 percent black student
enrollment and the controversy over
granting an honorary degree to
Nelson Mandela demonstrated the
administration's attitude about

Soviets change approach to
human rights, leader says
MOSCOW - Mikhail Gorbachev told an international peace
conference, yesterday, the Soviet Union is changing its approach to'
human rights "for all to see," but not because of Western pressure.
The Kremlin leader repeated Soviet opposition to the American
space-based defense project known as "Star Wars" and accused the White
House of "trampling" on agreements he and President Reagan reached at:
their 1985 Geneva summit to sour arms control negotiations.
There will be "no second Noah's Ark for a nuclear deluge," he said.
"We have rejected any right for leaders of a country, be it the U.S.S.R.,
the U.S. or another, to pass a death sentence on mankind."
Ohioan tried for war crimes
JERUSALEM - Retired Ohio autoworker John Demjanjuk went on
trial yesterday on charges he ran gas chambers at a Nazi death camp:
where 850,000 Jews died.
Demjanjuk, who says he is innocent, could face execution if
He is only the second man to be tried in Israel on Nazi war crimes-
charges. The government prepared for a showcase trial to teach young
Israelis about the Holocaust during which 6 million Jews perished in
German-run death camps.
The indictment charges Demjanjuk was the notorious guard "Ivan the
terrible" who beat and tortured victims before turning on the gas
chamber engines at Treblinka, a death camp in German-occupied Poland
in 1942 and 1943-
Army may modernize dog tags
WASHINGTON - The Army has soberly set out to modernize the
process of handling the remains of fallen soldiers, convinced the
military logistics of death have become outdated.
Among the concerns that now are being discussed are how the"
remains of soldiers killed as a result of nuclear, chemical or biological-'
warfare should be recovered and handled; what new technologies are
available for use in a war zone to assist in identification of remains, and x
what can be done to automate the process of tracking remains through
what is now a maze of paperwork.
An unclassified executive summary has been released, disclosing
recommendations to consider automating the Army's system for,
indentifying and handling remains, including the purchase of mini-
computers for graves reservation specialists.
Shiites allow refugees food
BEIRUT - Shiite Moslems lifted a four-month blockade yesterday
and let food trucks enter two small Palestinian refugee camps in south
Lebanon, but there was no indication of an end to the camp siege in
The United Nations said the four trucks unloaded 47 tons of flour,
90,000 cans of sardines and 564 canisters of skim milk in al-Bass and
Bourj el-Shamali near the port of Tyre.
Amal allowed a U.N. convoy carrying food to enter Beirut's Bourj
el-Barajneh camp Saturday only after an equal amount of food was
delivered to the surrounding Shiite slums.
Shiite gunmen from Amal have blockaded the three camps 50 miles
south of Beirut since Oct. 1 as part of a campaign to keep Palestine
Liberation Organization chief Yasser Arafat from regaining the
Lebanese base he lost with the 1982 Israeli invasion.

Cheerful chap looks for chums
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Bob Nozik always has a nice day.
He wakes up smiling, and when people ask, "How are you?" he
always answers, "Great! !" He radiates positive thoughts.
And it drives his friends nuts.
"When I talk to people and I'm being happy and cheerful as usual, I
get weirdness back," he said. "It would be nice once in a while to get
together with people who are as happy as I am and just not hold back
being the way I am."
With that cheery thought, Nozik is starting a support group for
happy people.
"You never see or read anything about people who are just happy,"
he said. "Everything I see is about people having problems. Maybe if
we can get a group like this together, we can find out what it is in their
backgrounds that is a common thread."
Three weeks ago, the 52-year-old ophthalmologist placed a
newspaper advertisement seeking other "joyful, happy people."
Six cheerful people called. The San Francisco Chronicle then carried
an article about his plans and the phone began ringing off the wall.
