E. Quad honor students displaced for next year
By ELIZABETH ATKINS
Some East Quad residents who
were unlucky in this year's room
lottery are surprised and upset they
didn't get rooms there for next year.
"I love East Quad and would
have loved to stay here," said Cathy
Willermot, a first-year honors stu-
dent who said she and other honors
students were "led to believe" they
would get first priority in the room
lottery. When recruited by the
University, Willermot said, she was
told that housing priority was an
advantage of the Honors Program.
Only three students in East
Quad's two honors halls, however,
received leases for next year in the
lottery. Other honors students have
sigped leases in Mary Markley Hall
or are looking for apartments,
The residence hall annually re-
serves 347 rooms for first- and
second-year Residential College and
Inteflex students and leaves the rest
for newly enrolled students, accord-
ing to East Quad Building Director
"We are not obligated to those
who live (in East Quad) beyond
freshman year," Patnaik said.
Marlene Mantyk, a University
housing advisor, said Residential
College policy requires students to
live in East Quad for the first two
years. She said approximately 165
male and female spaces are reserved
for Residential College students,
and those spaces are guaranteed for
only first- and second-year RC
"East Quad was not allocated
less rooms because of the Resi-
dential College students. Nothing
was any different this year than
other years," Mantyk said.
Patnaik said sometimes a
committee allows Residential
College students to live off-campus
their second year, depending on
Despite the misunderstanding,
LSA junior Carin Corser, an East
Quad Resident Director, said this
year's lottery was "more calm and
nicer" than other years.
Willermot said she and other
honors students think the Honors
Office should solve the problem of
displaced honors students and warn
incoming freshmen that they may
not be guaranteed housing beyond
their first year.
Willermot said the displaced
students held a meeting last week
after the room lottery. The group
decided to write a letter to the
Residence Halls Association and to
circulate a petition urging that
incoming honors students be made
aware that they do not belong to the
priority group. The petition will be
given to the Honors Program
Office, the Michigan Student
Assembly, and RHA.
Vince Schulte, an LSA fresh-
man, entered the lottery but did not
get a room. Schulte said he is
dissatisfied with the lottery system
and is upset that when he did not
get a room in the lottery, he was
not informed about the second
drawing for leftover rooms. He
ended up taking a double in Mary
Jeff Treppa, a first-year honors
student, was one of three honors
students to get a new lease. He
ended up on the last position on the
priority list and decided not to
reapply for leftover rooms because
none of them appealed to him.

Encouraging classified weapons research
on campus could damage the quality and
prestige of the University, Physics Prof.
Marc Ross said in a speech yesterday at the
International Center in West Quad.
Ross said classified weapons research
would divide faculty members and create an
atmosphere of secrecy. "Classification means
that you have to create two communities,"
he said. "Two libraries, two seminars, two
sets of facilities, and that kind of separation
- between people who are cleared and
people who aren't - is really an evil way to
conduct a university."
Classified research can also be "a way to
hide mediocrity... and incompetence," Ross
said, because such research is not open to
inquiry from other scientists.
Last term, University President Harold
Shapiro appointed an advisory committee to
review the current military research
guidelines. A majority of the committee
recommended eliminating the end-use clause
- which prohibits research which could be
used to kill or maim humans - and
requiring all sponsored research to be open to
public inspection. The Board of Regents is
expected to vote on new guidelines next
Ross predicted that "the caliber of the
University of Michigan as a research
university will go down" if the end-use
clause is dropped because the University
might then be encouraged to do research for
projects such as the Strategic Defense
Initiative. "The people who are willing to
take money for anything are not going to
have a good academic reputation."
Ross's speech, titled "A Faculty
Perspective on Policy Implications," was the
third in a series of five lectures on classified
research sponsored by the Ecumenical
Campus Center. Last week, Rev. Harvey
Guthrie, rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal
Church, gave a religious view of the
classified research controversy.
Guthrie spoke on the moral issues sur -
rounding classified research. He is the author
of a letter, signed by 66 local clergy
members, condemning proposals to elimi-
nate the end-use clause.
Guthrie said that curbs on military
research are not infringements of academic
freedom because "on moral grounds, some
attention needs to be paid to the implications
of who's paying the bill, and what the bill is
being paid for."
Guthrie said he was surprised at the
response to the letter.

in industrial applications and in
basic physics. She has been inter-
ested in the field since grade school.
Her doctoral work was in micro-
wave plasma, now applied to new
types of spacecraft propulsion. The
microwaves in which she studied
plasma reactions are the same as
those in microwave ovens.
This term, Brake is teaching a
class on introductory plasma
physics and a lab class on plasmas.
According to Knoll, Brake is an
"absolutely superb" teacher. He
added that she recently received an
almost perfect score on a student
evaluation. "She carries in a great
deal of enthusiasm in her teaching,"
Brake said that part of her
teaching philosophy is to make her
students think for themselves and
not just memorize data. "It's
important in science and engin-
eering and in any field," she said.

You can replace a closet full of shoes with a single
pair of Kaepa athletic shoes, because a Kaepa can
change its colors.
Just snap out the colored logos, and snap in new
colors. We have dozens-from Auntie Red to
So you can match your clothes, your school colors,
or your mood.
With a fraction of the money you save by not buy-

a pair of Kaepa shoes that change colors, too.
And since living well j A
