The move answers one of
UCAR's demands forcreation of an
Minority Affairs Office.
Dan Holliman, a UCAR ne-
gotiator, said this would be "a
significant, structural change in the
University in terms of autonomy,
budgetary power, and administrative
-An annual, permanent and
autonomous $35,000 budget for the
Black Student Union, which may
be increased in subsequent years.
-Appointment of a black senior
administrator in the Office of
Affirmative Action, establishment
of a grievance mechanism for
collecting data on racial incidents at
the University, and creation of an
anti-racial harassment policy as part
of University rules and regulations,
with appropriate sanctions spe-
-Budgetary incentives to attract
and retain minority faculty and
administrators. A post-doctoral
program will be developed to attract
minorities, as will a black faculty
development fund to improve
research and teaching capabilities.
-Incorporation of affirmative ac-
tion goals in annual performance
reviews of all deans and department
heads. Salary inequities of black and
other faculty will be reviewed on a
continual basis, and where
inequities exist the University will
address them immediately.
-Creation of a Presidential
standing advisory commission to
monitor the resolutions. Members
of the commission will include
presidential appointees, represen-
tatives from black faculty, student
organizations administrators, and

should not just be the respon-
sibility of those minorities which
"We as a nation, acting -col-
lectively through the electoral
process, can end racism," said
Andrew Viles, a graduate student in
Stressing the importance of
equal opportunity in higher ed-
ucation, Jackson called on uni-
versities and colleges across the
country to more actively recruit
minority students and faculty. He
said too much emphasis is placed
on recruiting minorities solely for
their athletic ability.
Compiled from Associated Press reports
"We can go all around America
and recruit athletes for this Uni-
versity, but those same airplanes
that can find football and basketball
players can find black scientists and
artists," Jackson said.
Jackson noted declining enrol-
lment of black students at leading
universities such as Harvard,
Princeton, and the University of
Chicago as a sign of the lack of
commitment to achieving racial
equality in the educational system.
Jackson pointed out that black
enrollment at the University of
Chicago dropped from 5 percent in
1976 to 2.5 percent this year. At
Harvard this year, 97 black
freshmen were admitted, but that
figure is down by 40 percent in 10
years, according to Jackson.
Jackson praised Shapiro for
establishing initiatives to combat
racism and increase the number of
minority staff and students on
"There's darkness on campuses
around this country, but from Ann
Arbor a light is shining today,"
Jackson said. "Racial violence
keeps on showing its ugly head,
but we have laws to handle the
"Today (Shapiro) is going to
abide by the law of the land," said
Charles Wynder, a spokesperson for
the Black Action Movement. "The
initial step in leadership taken by
Shapiro is significant," he said.
Addressing the issues of human
rights, Jackson said the United
States must reevaluate its foreign
policy to better combat discrim-
ination worldwide. He referred spe-
cifically to the South African
government's policy of apartheid
and U.S. intervention in Nicaragua.
"President Reagan has no
business by law or morality
invading a country next door
(Nicaragua)," Jackson said.
Sick hostage offered for trade
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Moslem kidnappers said yesterday ai
American hostage is so ill he may die soon and offered to trade him fo
100 Arab prisoners held in Israel.
A handwritten statement in Arabic delivered to the Beirut newspaper

and demanded that the United States persuade Israel to make the
It was signed by Islamic Jihad for the Liberation of Palestine, which
holds Steen, two other Americans, and an Indian. All were teachers at
Beirut University College when they were abducted from the west
Beirut campus in January.
In Washington, White House spokesman Roman Popadiuk said:
"We hold the captors responsible for the safety of the hostages, and we
will not pressure any third parties into giving in to terrorists' demands."
Government saves company
involved in Contra funding
WASHINGTON - State Department officials, citing White House
concern, bypassed normal procedures in 1985 to bail out a financially:
strapped company that was aiding the Nicaraguan Contras, a department:
The company, International Business Communications Inc., had
non-competitive State Department contracts to publicize the Contra
cause in the United States.
During the same period, the company also was involved in funneling.
privately raised money to the Contras.
The State Department memo said an "emergency payment" of about
$13,000 to International Business Communications was "of utmost
importance, not just to the department, but to the White House and the
NSC (National Security Council)."
'Indecent' TV law voted down
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court yesterday tied the hands of
state officials seekig to ban sexually explicit material and nudity from
By a 7-2 vote, the court struck down a Utah law that prohibited
"indecent" programs on cable broadcasts except between midnight and 7
Utah officials, conceding their drive against sexually explicit
material has been thwarted, said their only hope may be a change some
day in the composition of the high court.
The statute defined indecent material to include "the visual or verbal
depiction or description of human sexual or excretory organs or
functions...exposure of genitals, pubic area, buttocks, or the showing
of any portion of the female breast below the top of the nipple."
Medicaid abortions are less
expensive than child welfare
LANSING - It costs taxpayers 16 times more to support a poor
woman's baby during its first year than to pay for an abortion, state
Social Services Director Patrick Babcock yesterday told a House
committee studying a ban on Medicaid-paid abortions.
The result would be a $20 million increase in state welfare spending
if only 20 percent of the women who have abortions each year keep
their babies, Babcock estimated.
That compares with the $6 million per year Michigan now spends
on 18,000 abortions for poor women, Babcock said.
Librarian answers suggestion
box entries with sarcasm, wit
How often does one stroll by a ,8ugestion box without giving it a
second thought? Well, for those of you who do, you should stop by the
one at the UGLi. Instead of responses that are as boring as the questions,
the new fielder of student suggestions creates a witty-wonder-of-words.
Librarian X - who wishes not to be named- answers questions on
categories ranging from noise pollution to tempature control to serious
topics such as the lack of toilet paper in the UGLi bathrooms. For
instance, on a complaint about empty change machines, Librarian X
responded, "Surely you've learned by now that life isn't fair nor is it all;
beer and Skittles, peaches and cream, and so on." Librarian X often mixes'
witty comments with quotes from famous people such as John F.:
Kennedy and former Soviet Premier Nikolai Lenin. A majority of
Librarian X's work is on display by the suggestion box , located in the
reference section of the UGLi.
