Co-ed cheerleaders re-form
By REBECCA COX
Members of the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athletics
decided Tuesday to reinstate the co-
ed basketball cheerleading squad
after the group was suspended last
In a reversal of a decision made
by Althetic Director Don Canham
in early February, the men's squad
will remain all-male and the co-ed
squad will be re-formed, according
to board member Ron Albert, a
second year law student. Canham
had planned on combining the two
teams, said former co-ed coach Pam
At the University Board of
Regents' meeting last week, St.
John said Canham had decided to
restructure the University's
cheerleaders with one team of eight
men and eight women. She asked
the regents to intervene on the
cheerleaders' behalf. The regents did
not take any action.
The intercollegiate athletics
board delayed making any decisions
about tightening University
cheerleading guidelines that govern
the stunts cheerleaders can perform.
The decision to re-form the co-ed
cheerleading squad came after
almost three months of protests and
negotiations by the two squads
about a ruling made at the last
board meeting in January. Board
members banned any stunts in
which women cheerleaders raised
their feet more than 36 inches
above the ground.
After the co-ed squad sat out at a
basketball game to protest the
ruling, Canham sent a memo to St.
John saying that clinics and tryouts
for both the co-ed and the men's
squads were discontinued until
further notice. St. John resigned
The men's squad complained to
their advisor, Don Triveline, and
they were allowed to continue
clinics and tryouts. Tryouts were
held last week.
Heather Arsulowicz, co-captain
of the co-ed squad, feels that the
decision to reinstate the co-ed team
took so long because Canham
"can't accept that he made a wrong
According to Arsulowicz, a Big
Ten conference held in Chicago last
month created a committee to
review the conference's cheerleading
Canham was chosen along with
athletic directors from Northwestern
University and the University of
Minnesota to be on the committee.
"As far as I know, Minnesota
and Northwestern want to go with
the Universal Cheerleading
Arsulowicz said. Most schools
follow the guidelines outlined by
the Universal Cheerleading
Association, but the University
follows the Big Ten's stricter rules.

Lubman, who has been with the
University for four years, works
with light lasers trying to determine
the chemical structure of proteins.
He hopes to analyze sequences so
chemicals may be artificially
constructed inexpensively and
Lubman said his laser method of
analysis has not been researched
before, since most scientists use
electron beams. He will use the
fellowship money to buy new
equipment and pay student research
assistants. Lubman is teaching one
course this semester on the physical
methods of analysis.
Solon, who has also been at the
University for four years, teaches
two courses on econometrics. He
studies the effects of family
background on economic status.
Solon said the award money will
allow him to lessen his teaching
load next year and spend more time

Senate fails to end filibuster
WASHINGTON - The Senate failed for the third and final time1
yesterday to end a filibuster blocking action on a proposed freeze} of
U.S. military aid to the Contra rebels in Nicaragua.
The vote was 54-46, six short of the total required to break off the
But it was sufficient to indicate that Democrats can rally i
majority vote that will be needed if they are to succeed later this year:W
rejecting future requests for aid installments by President Reagan. :-
The proposal would have frozen for six months $40 million in aid-
approved last year to provide time for a complete accounting of all
sources of Contra assistance, private as well as public.
Democratic leaders have said their real goal was to demonstrate they
could muster the 51 votes needed to kill the aid program completely-
Chemotherapy may help
victims of colon cancer
SAN DIEGO - Wider use of chemotherapy could save the lives
each year of an additional 11,000 victims of colon and rectal cancer, the
nation's second largest cancer killer, a federal cancer expert says.
Dr. Michael Friedman said information has emerged within the last
year that settles the question of whether drug treatment is worthwhile
after this cancer is surgically removed.
"Every operable patient with colo-ractal cancer should be considered
for chemotherapy," he said.
Colon and rectal cancer follow lung cancer as the biggest cancer
killer. Friedman said 140,000 new cases will be diagnosed in the United
States this year.
AIDS follows long after
virus appears, study says
NEW YORK - The AIDS virus may lie dormant for an average of
15 years before the disease appears, suggesting that millions of cases
may yet appear in people already infected, according to a study.
The study estimates that around the end of 1984, 2.5 million
Americans had been infected and would develop AIDS over the next 30
years or so, barring medical advances.
The calculations also suggest that two-thirds of AIDS cases will
arise 10 to 20 years after infection, but researcher Malcolm Rees
stressed yesterday that the numbers are not firm projections.
Rees said his calculations imply that a "very high" proportion af
people who are infected develop AIDS.
A National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine report last
year estimated that 25 percent to 50 percent of infected people will get
AIDS in five to 10 years.
Mich. to study radon threat
LANSING - Michigan will begin surveying homes across the state,
for radon this week to determine the potential threat of the radioactive
gas, the state Public Health Department said yesterday.
Charcoal canisters will be placed in about 2,500-3,000 randoml
selected homes and later analyzed for signs of radon, which federal
officials estimate causes 5,000-20,000 deaths a year from lung cancer.
Michigan was one of 10 states selected by the federal Environmental
Protection Agency for the survey, which will cost the state about
$100,000 in employee time and effort, officials said. And they expect-to
find at least some "hot spots" with radon levels above EPA guidelines.

Perot gets 'Bonehead of Year'
DALLAS, Texas (AP) - Billionaire H. Ross Perot has been dubbed'.
the "Bonehead of the Year" for setting a new standard for severance pay,
but dawdling on his way to the bank with the $700 million check.
Perot, the feisty entrepreneur who made headlines recently when he
took on General Motors' management, was named 1986 Bonehead of
the Year by the Bonehead Club of Dallas.
"Anyone who could get fired from the board of directors of the:
largest corporation in America, and get $700 million for it, and then:
not cash the check - that's a genuine bonehead," said Paul Dishman,
one of the club's 57 members.
Perot, who gave up the top job at Electronic Data Systems, the
company he founded, as part of his agreement with GM, banked the1
check about four weeks later.
