Officials call 'safe sex kits'

spermacidal jelly.
"The issue for colleges and universities
is a very, very straight-forward one - it's
for us to get the message across that there
s risky heterosexual behavior as well as
omosexual behavior. The risks involve
primarily promiscuity without
rotection," he said.
"The sexual revolution is coming to a
eeching halt. We're not talking about
erpes, we're talking about death," Briefer
d.

Other officials agree with Briefer's
assessment on condoms. Scott Walton,
executive director of Wellness Networks,
an AIDS education and support organ -
ization, said condom distribution alone is
an inadequate to combat AIDS, because of
a 10 to 30 percent rate of inefficiency and
- since condoms are not inaccessible
students - free hand outs are not
remarkable.
The University Health Service
published a pamphlet on AIDS, and a
more explicit pamphlet entitled "Safe
Sex" is available only at their office.

Health Service also holds hour-long
workshops addressing AIDS, and is
working on literature and a presentation
which could be available in the fall for a
series of residence hall seminars
addressing sexuality on campus.
Free AIDS tests are available through
Health Service for students and faculty
members, and about 30 people are tested
each week. The University Hospital also
offers AIDS tests at a charge for the
community.
One unnamed University student has
been diagnosed as having AIDS, Briefer

said. There are 13 AIDS cases in
Washtenaw County.
John Heidke, associate director for
housing education and member of a
University AIDS task force, said the
housing division has information
available for residents about sexually
transmitted diseases. Residence hall staff
are now trained to deal with the problem
of AIDS, for the first time.
But some University officials say the
current guidelines are not enough to
provide students with a complete
awareness of the AIDS virus and disease.

Jim Toy, a coordinator for the Lesbian
and Gay Male Programs Office, said
current efforts are not enough and calls for
campus-wide forums on medical, legal,
and psychological concerns about AIDS.
The office, which conducts counseling,
education, and civil rights efforts for
gays, has seen a large increase in concern
for AIDS.
Toy said he has noticed several major
areas of concern. "One is uncertainty of
information. The other is people
concerned about their sexual behavior," he
said.

fit better."
BUT THE University, like
nany other large institutions, is
more research-oriented than teaching
riented. And faculty tenure is
etermined by publishing research.
1 And research - including the
University's own - exists on
irproving educational oppor -
tunities for black students.
"We have scientists over at the
stitute for Social Research who
$re constantly keeping a pulse on

the entire nation, and you're going
to tell me that we can not use our
intellectual resources to analyze
what is happening to us?" Morris
said.
Sociology Prof. Walter Allen
heads a study of black college
students and has recommended a
number of measures to improve
higher education services for black
students. A few of his suggestions
overlap with the United Coalition
Against Racism's demands on
University administration.

MANY UCAR demands
address changing attitudes, such as
establishing an orientation work -
shop and a required course in racial
diversity. But their first demand is
for a specific plan to guarantee
increased black student enrollment.
"People's attitude come from the
reality around them, and if you're
not around black people, obviously
it's going to contribute to your
racism," said Barbara Ransby, a

UCAR leader. Ransby, a graduate
student, emphasized that policies
create this reality.
"Even if people's attitudes and
feeling remain what they are, if the
policies change, if the concrete
reality changes that people
experience everyday, that's going to
influence those attitudes and
feelings more that abstract
discussions" she said.
BECAUSE THE University

is a leading institution, people
argue that if the University takes a

more active stance, O II
universities will follow.
