minority faculty members and to
establish role models.

The crash came o day after
diplomatic sources reported increased
police protection of the U.S. Em-
bassy in Rangoon because of reports
that an anti-American terrorist
group had entered Burma.
Officials would not speculate on
possible links between crash and
terrorists, and no further information
was available on the alleged arrival
Government sources, who spoke
on condition of anonymity, said the
plane was on a two-hour, regularly
scheduled flight from the national
capital of Rangoon to Pagan, about
306 miles tothe north.
Pagan has about 5,000 residents.
It lies on flat terrain on the east bank
of the Irrawaddy River, which

With 1,400 sales, Apple beat
out the others in volume, but IBM
attracted the most attention with its
new model that can display up to
256 different colors on the screen at
The University invited local
computer stores to sell software
merchandise and peripherals at the
pick-up. The invitations were an
effort by the University to quiet
complaints that its sale was taking
an unfair chunk out of local
Jeff Inwood, president of
ComputerLand in Ann Arbor, said
the stores served an important
function in the sale that deserves to
be recognized. "(The University)
needs us as authorized dealers be-
cause students want to see the
product they're buying," he said.
Inwood said that unless the
stores' made profits over the
weekend, the University may need
to find another way to compensate
the merchants for next year's sale.

THE Michigan Engineering
Television Network broadcasts by
microwave on a two-channel system
within a 35 mile radius of its main
transmitter in Detroit. It carries a
signal to its seven subscribers of the
network, major companies working
out of Detroit and in Southeastern
Michigan, including Unisys, General
Motors, and Ford.
In addition to Stevenson, who is
the acting director, METN employs
a staff of six television professionals
and 10 part-time students. Usually,
each student handles one class and
works in the broadcasting room
* during the transmission.
The students at the remote sites
are regular University students who
go through the standard application
process for the graduate program in
engineering. The only difference is
that they are presently employed and
are taking the classes at their place
of business via METN.
IN ADDITION to tuition,
S companies are charged $13,000 to
set up the system and $6,000 in
annual programming fees. These fees
allow METN to be self-supporting.
Since its creation in 1970.
METN has operated out of the West
Engineering Building. A little over a
year ago it moved into a new
complex that will cost approxi-
mately $2.3 million by the time it
is fully completed and equipped. The
complex came complete with editing
rooms, broadcasting rooms, and a
METN has offered over 30,000
hours of live broadcasting and has
enrolled more than 13,000 auditors
and credit students at businesses and
