Professor Peter Behers, who is
teaching classes on international
relations law, is replacing a
professor on sabbatical. Behers,
;from the University of Hamburg,
Germany, said he accepted the
University's offer because of its
"good research facilities and
extremely good (law) library."
The College of Pharmacy also
uses both visiting and adjunct
professors, according to Dean Ara,
Paul. John Topliss is an adjunct
professor from Ann Arbor's Warner
Lambert Park Davis Pharmaceutical
Topliss has lectured on drug
design for three years. He feels his
lectures "create a bridge from what
is taught in the classroom to how it
all relates to practical applications."
Most visiting professors work in
the College of Literature, Science,
and the Arts. Chris Miller, an
associate professor of English from
Pomona College in California, is
one of LSA's 28 visiting professors
this term. Miller will stay at the
University one semester teaching
both an undergraduate and graduate
Often visiting professors are
hired to cover temporary openings,
said Jack Walker, LSA associate
dean for academic affairs. Visiting
professors are occasionally offered a
full-time position at the University,
but this applies to only two or
three professor a year, Walker said.
Salaries are comparable to those at
But the visiting professor
program is not without difficulties,
Walker said. If students have
incomplete papers or miss a final,
it can become a big hassle when the
professors return to their
universities because students must
clear up problems long distance, he

stimulates the central nervous
system, allows thoughts to flow
more easily and readily, and
decreases fatigue and drowsiness.
In large doses, however,
"caffeine can cause insomnia, irrita-
bility, nervousness, tremors, extra
heartbeats and headaches," according
to a University Health Service
To make up for the lack of sleep
that most students experience after
staying up late studying, some
students resort to naps. Many take a
nap as a daily habit.
LSA sophomore Neil Bernstein
said naps are "the greatest invention
Others nap in class, especially
large lectures. Still others choose to
simply sleep straight through their
classes, because "sleeping during
class is like not going - little
registers one way or the other,"
according to Lisa Pera an LSA
Most students think they will
still do adequately in the classes
they sleep through. "It balances
out," said one LSA senior. "If you
stay up all night for a class, and
then sleep through it the next day,
then you're forced to make it up by
staying up again another night."
Only upcoming finals will tell if
the early to bed and rise theory or
the all-nighter one will win out.

Independent candidates in today's
MSA election may have a tough
time becoming known without help
from a party to publicize their
Some independents running
opposed in this year's MSA
election say the lack of party
publicity will not affect their
campaign. First-year law student
Glen Smith said he is not worried
about running independently
because, "students do not vote
straight ticket for MSA elections,
they vote for who they know."
Smith is running independently
because he would like MSA to
refund Law School students' MSA
fee, by having MSA adopt the
funding of the free services the Law
School provides such as
unemployment benefits and family
MOST independents decided to
run independently because they did
not support the platform of any of
the parties. However, some do not
have new ideas for MSA, and have
only their ability to be an effective
worker and representative of their
school to offer MSA.
LSA junior Michael Sherman he
does not want to be restricted to
adhering to a party's platform when
he may not fully agree with it.
Engineering sophomore Aldas
Kriauciunas said, "Parties are all the
same, I want to be different."
Bill Ammerman, a sophomore
candidate for LSA, said none of the
parties impresssed him enough for
him to show his undivided support
by running on their ticket.
"A PARTY cannot make a
person a good representative," said
Ammerman who is running on the
confidence that voters will know
that he is "aware of the issues,
speaks intelligently, hard working,
reasonable, responsible, and capable
of representing the average student
of the school of LSA."
Steve Cintron, a sophomore
running for Engineering rep., says
that he is running, independently
because he supports stroger action
on minority recruitment and
retention than parties are proposing,
and as a minority student he is
committed to make these changes.
THE ISSUES which the
independent candidates are most
concerned with are racism and
refocusing MSA on campus issues.
There are also independent
candidates who view MSA with
less commitment. Paul Kominsky,
a freshmen engineering candidate,
said he does not know the issues,
has never attended an MSA
The Daily did not contact
second-year law student Karen
Taylor who is also running
independently, along with LSA
juniors Ken Cohen and Frank
Independents running unopposed
are architecture student Peter Larson
and pharmacy student Timothy
Law student Joseph Girardot,
said he has dropped out of the
election, but MSA will not take his
name off the ballot.

Quotas may cost U.S. jobs
WASHINGTON - Limits on Japanese car sales in the United.
States have cost thousands of U.S. jobs and motivated Japanese car -
makers to set up shop on American soil where they can make additional
competitive inroads, a private economist said yesterday.
Clifford Winston, a senior fellow with the Brookings Institution,
said his study documents the counterproductive effects of trade restrict -
ions in the auto industry and should serve as a warning to the Congress
as it considers trade legislation.
Winston concluded that with Japanese car sales in the United States
limited by voluntary quotas, American automakers found they could
safely boost prices and limit production without fear of being undercu1,'
by their main rival.
Study: acid lakes to increase
WASHINGTON - A long-awaited study of acid rain predicts that
about 300 lakes in the northeastern United States will become acidic in
the next 50 years unless the pollutants that cause the problem are
The unreleased study by Environmental Protection Agency scientists
predicts that lakes in the Southeast will start becoming acidic in that,
period, but there is what one official called a "nil" chance that lakes in.
the West will be hurt because of low emissions of the pollutants in.
If the study's prediction is borne out, it would mean almost a
doubling of the number of acidic lakes in the Northeast.
The Reagan administration has resisted urgings from environ -
mentalists, Northeastern states, and the Canadian government for furthe.
emissions controls, arguing there is no evidence that any significan
new damage is occurring.
New trade law to be proposed
DETROIT - U.S. Rep. John Dingell said yesterday he's confident
Congress will approve legislation to stop unfair trading practices by
foreign nations, with or without President Reagan's concurrence.
"I think (prospects) are really very good," the Michigan Democrat
said at a news conference before addressing the Economic Club of
Detroit. "We anticipate the president, despite speeches or comments to
the contrary, will either sign it or have his veto overridden."
The proposed law would "level out the playing field" in international
trade by forcing the Japanese and other trading partners to allow U.S.
companies entry into their markets in return for export rights to the
United States, Dingell said.
Panel OKs anti-balding drug
WASHINGTON - A government advisory panel yesterday
recommended approval of the first drug shown to make hair grow on
bald men, but with the provision that doctors be instructed to tell their
patients not to expect miracles.
The panel of outside experts also told the Food and Drug
Administration it expects the agency to closely monitor advertising of
the product to make sure the manufacturer, Upjohn Co., does not over -
state what the hair grower can be expected to do.
C. C. Evans, the physician who heads the FDA's dermatology sec -
tions, said he expects the minoxidil drug to be approved in a few
To be effective, the drug must be taken indefinitely. If discontinued,
the hair it has stimulated to grow falls out. Minoxidil has been used in
tablet form for about 20 years as a treatment for high blood pressure,
and the side effect of hair growth was noted in'some patients.
Eighth annual Slug Fest
introduces wormy cuisine
GUERNEVILLE, Calif (AP) - Participants in the eighth annual:
Slug Fest don't need strong jaws so much as strong stomachs.
The event Sunday included slug-eating contests, slug races and the;
sampling of gourmet dishes prepared with the slimy creature, including
Szechwan Slug and Strawberry Almond Slug Shortcake.
To wash it all down, there were vodka martinis with a twist of slug.
Sebastopol Councilwoman Anne Magnie drew loud chants of "Eat It!"
when she hesitated on the "Slug-ka-bob," skewered slug with bits of fruit
Municipal Court Judge Mark Tansil allowed that he actually likes
slugs. "I'm into cruel and unusual punishment," he said.
Michaelsen, one of the judges for the festival at the Guernewood;
Lodge, said that no matter wat cooks do to them, slugs "are slimy
creatures and they feel that way going down your throat."
