University
confirms
death was
-suicide
(Continued from Page i)
students in the vicinity of the bell
tower kept their gaze fixed on the
212 foot high structure. Students
grouped together to dicuss their
reactions to Power's death, and
some would point at the eighth
floor window she fell from.
. O T HERS pointed to spot
where Powers fell, which was
covered with pots of flowers
brought by mourners. Other
students stood by silently and
shook their heads.
The crowds thinned during
classes, but there was almost
always a passerby, pausing to look
at the tower.
Alan Brown, a University
employee, brought two pots of
flowers to place on the site.
"Flowers are a sign of life, and
Sarah Power was the essence of
life," he said.
CALLING himself an
admiring acquaintance of Power's,
Brown said her death shocked him
greatly. "It's the kind of shock you
don't get over for a long time," he
said.
University psychology Prof.
Chris Peterson said "you can
usually assume depression and
unhappiness dominate most
suicides."
He said Power may have decided
to jump from the tower to make
sure she would die, not to make a
.public statement, as some have
speculated.
wrLisa Greyson, a spokeswoman
.:for Gov. James Blanchard said
Blanchard has not decided who he
will appoint to fill Power's seat on
the University's Board of Regents.
There will be a memorial
service Friday at 10:30 a.m. in Hill
Auditorium. Power's family has
Pot publicly disclosed the funeral
xarrangements.

Leader says China needs reform

BEIJING, China (AP) - China
must push ahead this year with
economic reform while curbing
extravagant spending and improving
productivity, Premier Zhao Ziyang
told the opening session of the
National People's Congress
yesterday.
The country's second most
important goal is to eliminate the
"pernicious influence" of Western
liberal thought, Zhao told the 2,719
delegates gathered for their annual
16-day meeting.
The National People's Congress
is constitutionally the highest state
organ with sole authority to enact
laws and amend the constitution,
but it is regarded as a rubberstamp
body. Ultimate power is in the
hands of the Communist Party.
Among the delegates was Hu
Yaobang who made his first public
appearance since he was ousted Jan.
16 from his post as Communist
Party general secretary for failing to
crack down on students

demonstrating for democracy and on
intellectuals espousing Western
liberal though .,
Scattered applause broke out as
Hu entered the auditorium and sat
down next to Vice President Ulanhu
and two seats from Zhao, who was
named acting party secretary after
Hu's dismissal.
Zhao's 53-page speech focused
on China's economy, now in its
eighth year of market-force reforms
initiated by China's supreme leader,
Deng Xiaoping. Zhao is one of the
chief architects of such reforms.
Zhao said the most important
success of 1986 was slowing down
economic growth which he said was
too rapid in 1984 and 1985. China
"must unswervingly push ahead all-
round reform of the economic
structure so as to maintain steady,
sustained economic growth," he
said.
He said the country has
progressed with reforms that give
people more freedom to choose

their jobs and give factory managers
more authority to operate free from
bureaucratic interference.
Zhao also noted that China's
commodity markets are "brisk and
flourishing" and that the country
has cut its foreign trade deficit.
Among the economy's
problems, he listed demand
exceeding supply, a budget deficit,
price increases, poor efficiency and
product quality and red tape and
corruption in government.
Zhao also called for a 10 percent
cut in government spending.
He said the country has made
progress in controlling spending on
construction projects. At the same
time, investments in energy,
transport and communications and
raw and semi-finished materials
industries are inadequate and could
jeopardize other aspects of the
economy, Zhao said.
The premier noted that many
businesses have given excessive
wage increases to their workers.

In an interview, Camillo and
Mayor Vallecillos described the
living conditions in Juigalpa, a city
of 35,000 people. Vallecillos said
only 40 percent of the town's 4,000
homes have running water.
This creates a sewage problem.
Many homes that do have water
have to share their facilities with
several neighbors. In addition to the
limited water supply in that region
of Nicaragua, building plumbing
systems is technologically difficult.
ANN Arbor Mayor Edward
Pierce anounced at the city council
meeting Monday night that
Vallecillos will meet with city
department heads during his visit.
In addition, Vallecillos will visit
the city solid waste disposal site so

disposal.
"The problem with solid waste
disposal is the most insidious
negative factor regarding public
health in Juigalpa," said Camillo.
Vallecillos said that people
