Festifall shows off 'U' activities IN BRIEF
Compiled fom Associated ress reports
By STEVEN FELDMAN
The University exhibited its
diversity on Friday when Festifall
claimed the Diag. A sampling of
groups, activities, and organizations
- from fraternities to sports teams
to religious organizations - were
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., students
crowded the Diag seeking informa-
tibn from more than 50 tables and
m booths. For some of these groups, a
table at Festifall is the best way to
L"We anticipate getting more new
members through (Festifall) than
through any other of our advertise-
ments around campus," said James
Marks, a University alumnus work-
ing at the table for Tae Kwon Do, an
Asian martial art.

But, like any catalyst for argu-
ment and debate, Festifall reflected
controversy. The U.S. A r m y
recruiting table stood right next to
the table for the Michigan Alliance
for Disarmament. Tables promoting
peace in Central America faced tables

Steve Willason, a graduate stu-
dent in architecture and member of
Brothers and Sisters in Christ, said
increased interest in the organization
points to a return towards so-called
Willason, referring to several re-
ligious groups represented at the
event, said, "People are looking for
meaning in their lives in response to
problems like drugs and alcohol."
Many of the tables were com-
prised of minority interest groups.
Darshan Vyas, an LSA senior and
president of the Indian-American
Association, said such groups are
instrumental in promoting the un-
derstanding of the many minorities
at the University.
"Many of our activities and pre-
sentations present material that is
not taught in the classroom," he
Staff members of the University
Health Services had the largest dis-
play, with nine tables of information
and exhibits. Along with tables on
medical concerns, health services
sponsored a first at Festifall - a

Polly Paulson, the AIDS educa-
tion coordinator, estimated that by
the end of the day she had distributed
some 400 maize-and-blue, pink-and-
green, and plain condoms to
"extremely receptive students."
Friday marked the first time con-.
doms were publicly available on
campus. Student responses, said
Paulson, ranged from those who
took a condom with an embarrassed
smile to those who "grabbed them
by the handful."

Ford remains in
DETROIT (AP) - For more
than a week, there has been no
change in the condition of auto
magnate Henry Ford II.
He is listed in serious condition
and suffering from pneumonia, a
hospital spokesman said yesterday.
Ford, 70, was admitted to Henry
Ford Hospital, last week after being
treated for a few days at Cottage
Hospital in Grosse Pointe Farms.
Brian Cheatham, a spokesman for
Henry Ford Hospital, said yesterday
the grandson of the founder of Ford
Motor Co. remained in serious, but
Last Friday, a hospital statement
said Ford's ailment was being treated
Also on Friday, Ford received the
sacrament of the sick from the Rev.
John Mericantante III of Hialeah,
Fla., who was in Detroit to officiate
at the wedding of Chrysler Corp.
Chairman Lee Iacocca's daughter
A statement from Ford Motor
Co. said no one in the Ford family
had asked the priest to perform the
ceremony, often called the last rites.
For 35 years, Ford ran the auto
company. He retired Oct. 1, 1982,
and has a residences in Palm Beach,
Fla., and Grosse Pointe Farms.
Since his retirement, he has been a
member of Ford's board of directors
and chairs its finance committee.

Battle over Bork continues
WASHINGTON - As the Senate Judiciary Committee prepares to
hear from the backers and detractors of Robert Bork in the hearings'
second phase, Bork appears likely to win the support of five Republicans
and attract negative votes from five Democrats.
The Republicans are Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, Orrin Hatch
of Utah, Alan Simpson of Wyoming, Charles Grassley of Iowa, and
Gordon Humphrey of New Hampshire.
The Democrats are committee chairman Joseph Biden of Delaware,
Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, Howard Metzenbaum of Ohio, Patrick
Leahy of Vermont, and Paul Simon of Illinois.
Bork's fate in the committee would then be determined by Democrats
Robert Byrd of W. Virginia, Dennis DeConcini of Arizona, and Howell
Heflin of Alabama, and Republican Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania.
U.S. and Soviets still divided
on arms agreement details
WASHINGTON - Despite an agreement in principle on a nuclear
arms pact, the United States and the Soviet Union remain divided on two
important provisions and are sending their experts back tothe bargaining
Yet to be resolved are differences over the timetable for withdrawal of
the intermediate-range nuclear missiles covered by the agreement and on a
set of rules to prevent violations of the treaty.
After three days of talks, President Reagan announced on Friday that
he and Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev were committed to
signing the treaty at a summit meeting in the United States this year, but
that details must still be worked out.
In general, however the soviets have agreed to a U.S. demand for on-
site inspection - technicians actually going to each others' territory to
see for themselves what is going on at missile bases.
Detroit teachers end strike
DETROIT - Strikes in four Michigan school districts carried over
into the week, while today will be the first day of work for Detroit
teachers who struck for nearly three weeks.
Walkouts in Cassopolis, Gibraltar, East China and West Iron County
school districts are keeping more than 11,000 students and 650 teachers
out of class.
In Detroit, teachers were to report today for orientation and the
district's 193,000 students would have their first day of class tomorrow.
The agreement approved Saturday includes a guaranteed 6.5 percent
raise in the year beginning Oct. 1, said Detroit Federation of Teachers
member Denise Irwin.
Two of the five Detroit school board members voted against the
proposed pact, saying the district couldn't afford it.
Annual pay for Detroit teachers ranges from $19,963 to $36,222.
Conference shows split GOP
MACKINAC ISLAND - A deeply divided GOP wrapped up a
weekend meeting that featured visits by three presidential aspirants, and a
confrontation between Robertson and state sen., Doug Cruce (R- Troy).
Cruce asked Robertson if he "personally condoned" his campaign's
move to bar the Michigan nominees from automatically being seated as
at-large delegates at the Jan. 14 county conventions.
Robertson deferred thc question to his top political aide, Marc Nuttle,
who said that in 1976, 1980, and 1984, the Michigan officeholders and
nominees weren't automatically included as convention delegates.
The highly organized Robertson forces split the majority of those
delegates with the vice president, stunning his heavily favored effort.
Regents back rah-rah squad
The University's Board of Regents made a critical decision Friday.
The ruling body voted to encourage the University's cheerleaders to
travel to the Michigan-Michigan State football game next month.
Although Regent Veronica Smith (R-Grosse Ile) wants both football
and basketball cheerleaders to be guaranteed travel funds to all away
games, her motion was tabled until next month.
What prevents the squads from attending? Who knows.
Neither the regents nor University President Harold Shapiro had any
idea why the cheerleaders were unable to attend away games, but they
all wanted to ensure that the squad would not miss an away game
before next month's regents meeting.
"I do think we're doing an injustice to the cheerleaders," Smith
aRegent Neal Nielsen (R-Brighton), suggested that if the cheerleaders
are unable to go, Regents Thomas Roach (D-Saline), Philip Power
(D-Ann Arbor), and Roger Waters (D-Muskegon) take the field in their
