'U' programs offer
summer internships

By HEATHER EURICH
Eric Winiecke was lucky to land
an internship with R.F. Duffy, a
Chicago finance analyst, this sum-
mer. He admits it.
The internship taught him more
about business than he could ever
learn in a classroom, Winiecke says,
because Duffy, who holds a doctorate
in economics, served as his personal
tutor.
But getting the summer work was
more than just luck. It was the result
of an arduous eight month process
that began with his application to
the Business Internship Program,
run by the University's Office of
Career Planning and Placement, last
fall.
Many students hoping for sum-
mer internships are not prepared,
even waiting until April or May -
too late to have a reasonable hope
for employment - to begin
applying for jobs, said Kerin Mc-
Quaid, supervisor of C P & P' s
internship programs.
But the BIP program, as well as
the career planning office's Public
Service Internship Program, takes
students step-by-step through the
internship-hunting process begin-
ning in mid-September, McQuaid
said.
But first, they must be accepted.
Both programs are open to stu-
dents enrolled in any University
school or college. Any undergradu-
ate can be admitted to the PSIP, but
students must be at least a sopho-
more to be eligible for the BIP.
Applicants are screened on the
basis of previous employment, aca-
demic standing, character, and a
willingness to participate in the
year-long programs, according to
McQuaid.
Upon acceptance, students are
taught how to write resume and
cover letters, and to hone their inter-
viewing skills. Approximately 75
BIP members meet on a weekly ba-
sis while 100 PSIP members meet
monthly, she said.
During this time, group discus-
sions are held in order to critique and
share each others' progress, and stu-
dents are encouraged to contact
hoped-for employers. A slide show
of Washington D.C. is presented to
PSIP members.
The strong reputations of the
two internship programs encourage

employers to hire the participants;
McQuaid said. As a result, students
in the BIP find paying summer
positions all over the country, rang-
ing from New York to Chicago tQ
Detroit.
Students in the PSIP, who are
housed in luxurious George Wash-
ington University dormitories, dis-
cover rewarding experiences i"
Washington D.C., working in such
offices as ABC News or the Smith,
sonian's National Gallery of Art.
The students get an inside look at
the nation's capital. Last summer,
Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day
O'Connor spoke privately with
University students.
For Winiecke, his internship in-
volved extensive research and daily
contact with Chicago businesspeo-
ple. It was an opportunity, he -said,
to grow as an entrepreneur with a
sense of pride in individual achieve-
ment. He was also able to establish
valuable business contacts, and pad
his resume, Winiecke said.
Dawn Hamm and Harkmore Lee,
both worked for the Institute of In-
ternational Education under the
PSIP. By helping to set up
individual and group projects for
youths from foreign nations, who
visited the U.S. this summer, both
said they learned what a 9-to-5 job is
all about and also had a chance to
learn about international relations
first hand.
Internships provide job-hunting
experience for after graduation, valu-
able work experience, and a time for
personal growth, Hamm said. They
also allow students to discover jobs
which will make them happy for the
rest of their lives, she said.
Those interested this year must
apply either at the BIP meeting on
Sept. 16 or the PSIP meeting on
Sept. 23, both scheduled to be held
in Rackham Auditorium.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -
George Washinton stayed with a
friend when he came to town to help
draft the U.S. Constitution, and
anyone who didn't book early for the
bicentennial of that event better hope
they can do the same, say hotel
managers.
Some hotels downtown,

Wall Street

French
dictionary
PARIS (AP) - Straight from
Wall Street, "raider" has elbowed its
way into the 1988 edition of Petit
Larousse, a French dictionary that
acts as a mirror of contemporary life
and language.
The just-published edition in-
cludes 73 new words, 20 new mean-
ings to words, nine new expressions,
and 27 new proper nouns, including
Phillippine President Corazon
Aquino, tennis star Ivan Lendl, and
Chernobyl, site of the world's
largest nuclear accident.
No arbiter of perfect Frence, Petit
Larousse documents the rise and fall
of personalities and words. Less
weighty than the more staid Petit
Robert dictionary, it is perused for
the peculiarities of the past year.
Some have compared the arrival
of the Petit Larousse to the annual
uncorking of the nouveau Beaujo-
lais.
But language purists might con-
sider Petit Larousse "ralant," a
homegrown work meaning bother-
some and a new entry in this year's
edition, right next to "raider," as de-
fined as one who rakes over another
person's company.
With its healthy dose of English
entries, Petit Larousse could never
be called "franco-francais," defined as
that which is exclusively French.
"It was a good year," editor
Christine Ouvrad said in a telephone
interview. "Because last year we
only had 48 new words and this year
73."2
There are usually about 100 new
entries, including names, words, ex-
pressions, and meanings. this year's
77,000 entries include 129 new con-
tributions, Ms. Ouvrad said.
"The difficulty is in trying not to
make mistakes, taking only words
that are in style now," she said. "We
try not to take words that are too a la
mode," because they will soon dis-
appear.
'Many new words this year are of
a technical natue.
Among them: "seropositif," or
seropositive, most commonly used
to denote a positive test for acquired
immune deficiency syndrome , and
"procreatique," referring to the study
of artifical preocration.
"Raider" and "finaliser" (to make
final) are among this year's new En-
glish words or derivatives. They join
M such standards as "OK" and

dence Mall and the Olde Philadelphia
section where Washington worked
and slept, have been booked for more
than two years for Thursday's Con-
stitution Day extravaganza.
"Our suites overlook the Ben-
jamin Franklin Parkway, so a num-
ber have rented them to watch the
parade," said Philis Nangle,
spokeswoman for The Palace Hotel.
"We've been sold out for the whole
week. It's been the biggest week
since Live Aid for us."
The parade, being produced by
Radio City Music Hall Productions,
will last an estimated five hours. It
ends just up the parkway from the
Palace at the Philadelphia Museum
of Art.
Mike Vento, assistant general
manager at the Quality Inn Center
City, said the hotel sold out for the
entire week last Friday and has been
sold out for Thursday for two years.
A Holiday Inn two blocks from
Independence Hall has been booked
for the week of the celebration since
June 1986, said sales manager
Chuck Reiss.
"We realized the full impact this
would have on us when the rooms
started going that quickly. We didn't
expect it that fast," he said.

Fire hits building site
By LISA POLLAK
A fire at the construction site of the new chemistry building on
North University last night destroyed two gas welding tanks but left
no other damage or injuries.
Two University Plumbing Department employees were in the
building's steam tunnel at 6:34 p.m. when their rubber welding
tanks and hoses ignited, according to Ann Arbor Fire Captain John
Schnur.
Sparks from welding torches erupted into flames when they hit
acetylene gas that had leaked from the tank, Schnur said.
Steam-fitter Tom Northrup and his partner William Burke threw a
leather coat over the flames, which shot up about two feet.
The fire brought a large response from the fire department, which
sent four engines, a rescue truck, and a utility truck to the site.
"Any high value-property in Ann Arbor immediately gets a six-truck
response, regardless of the fire's size," Schnur explained.
Northrup estimated that the fire department took about ten
minutes to completely extinguish the blaze.
