Crash survivor to
leave hospital soon
By DAVID SCHWARTZ
Cecelia Cichan, the lone survivor
of the crash of Northwest Flight
255, remains in good condition at
the rehabilitation unit of the
University Medical Center. A
hospital spokesperson said she is
expected to be released within one or
The exact date of Cecelia's release
has not yet been set, said Public
Relations Spokesperson Michael
Harrison. She has been at the Uni-

Harrison said. The meetings with
psychologists "started even before
she got to the rehabilitation center,"
Harrison said that Cecelia has
been taking routine walks around the
hospital, occasionally using a
walker. "For the most part, Cecelia
is restricted to a wheelchair because
of her broken leg," he said.
Harrison said he receives about 15
phone calls a day from media
throughout the country asking about
Cecelia's condition. He said the ex-
tensive coverage has presented prob-

more private recovery.
But, "The media has been very

that the family wants its privacy,"

Michigan Student Assembly representatives,
in an annual meeting with University President
Harold Shapiro, questioned him about their
concerns on a number of campus, and non-
The assembly spent an hour at Shapiro's
house getting his opinion on the proposed code
of non-academic conduct, the housing problem,
the recent controversy over a physical education
class, and Allan Bloom's book, The Closing of
the American Mind.
LSA representative Michael Phillips pressed
Shapiro repeatedly on the code, and said later to
the assembly that, at the meeting, "You (the as-
sembly) witnessed a man give us nothing," in
reference to Shapiro's remarks on the code.
Assembly Vice President Rebecca Felton was

"pleased that we had the opportunity (to meet
with Shapiro), but there were no surprises (in his
She mentioned that it is difficult for students
to meet with Shapiro, and so this meeting was
productive in the sense that it was "one more
opportunity for students to talk to the president."
After returning from the meeting with
Shapiro, the assembly heard from the Interfrater-
nity Council. IFC public relations chair Ricky
Nemeroff pledged to attend all future assembly
meetings to thwart what he saw as a
"communication gap" between IFC and the as-
Nemeroff also announced that IFC, in
association with the Sexual Assault Prevention
and Awareness Center and other campus groups
would be conducting sexual awareness workshops
for fraternity members. These workshops are part
of a sexual awareness week later this month that
was announced last April.
In other business, the assembly passed a reso-
lution calling for the release of Salvador Ubau, a
political prisoner in El Salvador. L S A
representative David Newblatt abstained from
voting on the resolution because he felt MSA
should not get involved in non-campus issues.
"I don't think its appropriate for MSA to
consider matters... that don't pertain to student
issues," he said. "There is a need to focus on
campus issues. Our public profile depends on it'
The assembly also passed a resolution which
endorses the abolishing of a University policy
which limits financial support of graduate stu-
dents to 10 semesters.
Cold Miser brings early
chills to campus this fall
By KATIE HUBERT
The Cold Miser has come to pay
a visit to Ann Arbor, and according
to Atmospheric and Oceanic Sci-
ences graduate student Chris Bedford,
the little blue man may be settling
in for a lengthy stay. "We might
have snow before it warms up" later
this week, Bedford warns.
It is only October, and first-year
LSA student Nancy Rosenblum does
not find that a cheerful thought. "I'm
from New York, and (this weather)
is the worst. I just don't understand
Rosenblum, however, is appar-
ently unaware of the 20 inches of
snow that fell on her home state on
Monday. Meanwhile, out in the land
of palm trees and sandy beaches,
Californians are enjoying record-
breaking 100 degree days. In the
past, Ann Arbor, nestled in the mid-
dle of these two extremes, has suf-
fered much worse than the 48 degrees
recorded yesterday. The record low
for October 6 is 29 degrees set in
1935, so "it could actually be a lot
worse than it is," Bedford explained.
Mike Caulk, known to Diag fre-
quenters as Preacher Mike, agrees
with Bedford's optimism and adds,
"It's never a bad day for the Lord!"
Apparently unconcerned with
God's opinion, geology graduate
student George Elawal gripes, "I'm
from the Middle East, and I wish I
hadn't come here."
Meteorologists are predicting
temperatures to remain in the 40's
for the next few days with a likeli-
hood of rain and possible snow
