Moody speaks
on educational
e quity t o alums

By CARRIE LORANGER
Equity in education was the theme
of a speech by University Vice Pro-
vost for Minority Affairs Dr. Charles
Moody Friday night.
Moody's speech - an outline of
four necessary steps to increase
minority enrollment at the Uni-
versity - kicked-off the School of
Education's alumni society meeting
at the Sheraton University Inn.
The first is to give students access
to the programs, classes and activ-
ities within the University.
Moody said whenever he reads
about minority students who win a-
wards, he sends them a letter of con-
gratulations. Then he sends their
name to the admissions office to
assure that the student receives a
University application, he said.
Moody encouraged alumni to do the
same and aid in minority recruitment
efforts in their home towns.
The second dimension is what
Moody called treatment. He said
Black students and faculty at the
University are treated as if someone
lowered the standards for them. He
said a student could have 1600
S.A.T. score and a 3.9 G.P.A. and
others think they were admitted to
the University only because they
were Black.
He said University officials should
look at minority enrollment as an
opportunity and not a problem.

The third dimension is acheive-
ment. Moody said both students and
faculty need to see awards, rewards,
and recognition.
The last dimension to Moody's
plan is called the transfer dimension.
He said it is important for students to
be able to transfer their acheivements
into jobs that will provide them
equal pay, power and prestige.
Not all School of Education
graduates are teachers. Judy Casey,
who graduated in1965 and lives in
South Bend, Ind., went on to earn a
master's degree from Ball State
University in Student Personnel
administration. She is director of
financial aid at St. Mary's College in
Indiana.
Casey said the push to increase
minority enrollment is not new. She
said when she was in school there
were only 100 Black students. "We
came here and realized we were in a
minority and as long as nobody
bothered me or my friends, we didn't
worry," Casey said.
In Dean Carl Berger's State of the
School address Saturday morning, he
said research grants have increased
and added technology is permitting
faster data processing and long-
distance communication.
"We don't play catch-up at the
University of Michigan, we play leap
frog," he said referring to the
school's recent computer purchases.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press reports
Bush praises rescue effort
MIDLAND, Texas - The rescue of 18-month-old Jessica McClure
from an abandoned well was a tribute to the American spirit, Vice
President George Bush said yesterday during a visit to the hospitalized
toddler and her parents.
"This is what America really is," Bush said. "The rock was hard and
they couldn't get through, but they heard the voice and they wouldn't give
up and for 60 hours, they dug."
Jessica, who spent 58 hours wedged in the narrow shaft, remained in
serious but stable condition yesterday. She continued to improve, was no
longer dehydrated and her right foot had regained a healthier pink color,
Midland Memorial Hospital spokesperson Laurie Johnson said.
Aquino foils coup attempt
MANILA, Philippines - The government said it foiled a coup
attempt yesterday after rebel soldiers stole an armored vehicle. President
Corazon Aquino said martial law was "not yet necessary" despite
continuing instability.
The rebels stole the personnel carrier from army headquarters and drove
it undetected to Santo Tomas Univesity despite a full military alert. The
six-man crew abandoned the vehicle about a mile from the president's
residence and escaped with a machine gun and ammunition.
Acting Manila Gov. Jejomar Binay said renegade Lt. Col. Reynaldo
Cabauatan had planned to launch an attack on the presidential compound
from a campus staging area. Cabauatan, sought since a coup attempt in
January, denied any role in the theft.
Presidential spokesperson Teodoro Benigno said the incident could
have been staged to embarrass a government still seeking to restore public
confidence after 53 people died in a coup attempt on August 28th.
Iran hints at more attacks
MANAMA, Bahrain - The Iranian missile that wrecked a U.S.-
flagged tanker was "a lucky shot" that could have hit Kuwait's oil
terminal complex or several other ships in the area, U.S. military sources
said yesterday.
Kuwaiti officials lodged a formal protest with Tehran. Iran's foreign
minister virtually acknowledged Iran launched the missile Friday and
hinted at more attacks.
Four U.S. Navy warships passed through the Suez Canal on the way
to the Persian Gulf area, canal officials reported..
In Tehran, Iranian officials accused U.S. forces of torturing four
wounded Iranian sailors detained in a clash in the gulf this month. The
four were repatriated to Iran through neutral Oman on Saturday.
Salvage executives said it would cost up to $10 million to repair the
81,283-ton Sea Isle City after the missile attack, which injured 18crew
embers.
Judiciary committee member
accuses Dems of scare tactics
WASHINGTON - A telephone warning from a Senate Judiciary
Committee aide to a Black law professor supporting Supreme Court
nominee Robert Bork was "reminiscent of the ugly tactics of the Klu
Klux Klan," Senator Gordon Humphrey (R-N.H.) said yesterday.
Humphrey, a Bork supporter and a member of the committee, called
for an investigation of the incident as the Senate prepared to debate the
nomination this week.
Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd said debate on Bork could start
tomorrow, but indicated he might remove the nomination from the agenda
if arguments go on too long.
EXTRAS
Second supernatural sighting
of Savior seen on soybean silo
FOSTORIA, Ohio (AP) - An image on the side of a soybean oil tank
that many people believe is Jesus Christ is the second to appear in 15
months.
Several men, women, and children Friday lined Ohio 12 west of this
northwestern Ohio city to look at the image of what some believe is the face
of Christ on the newly painted tank owned by Illinois-based Archer Daniel
Midland.
The new image, which was first reported publicly on Thursday, is the
second to appear on the 40-foot-high tank. Many claimed that the first,
which appeared in July 1986, was that of Jesus Christ and a small child.
This time, some witnesses say they see Jesus Christ in a long, flowing
robe with a hand raised skyward, others see only the face of jesus Christ.
Still others think it looks like the Statue of Liberty.

The first image disappeared in September 1986 when former Findlay
firefighter Ricky Sims got so angry at traffic jams around the tank that he
tossed several paint-filled balloons at it. He later pleaded guilty to a charge of
crimnal damaging.
