Stock market drop
may continue

NEW YORK (AP) - As the
battered stock market reopens today,
Wall Street faces uncertainty not
only about interest rates and the
economy but also whether a new
wave of investors is poised to bail
out.
Many market pros say last week's
shocking tumble in stock prices
marked only a temporary retreat or
"correction" that could preface further
gains and a continuation of the 5-
year-old bull market.
But a stiff test may come when

the markets reopen, as those who
have not yet made their decisions -
including foreign investors who trade
U.S. stocks on overseas markets and
mutual fund managers who control
billions of dollars in shares - either
join the selling binge, stand pat or
buy stocks they believe have fallen
to "bargain" levels.
Last week's sensational tumble
shocked market pros and casual
investors alike, raising speculation
on Wall Street and in the media over
whether the bull market was over.

When Kinesiology Prof. Dr. Vic-
tor Katch began a fitness program for
a research project in the Central
Campus Recreation Building three
years ago, he probably didn't know
that his program - later coined
"omnikinetics" - would become a
popular method of physical fitness at
the University.
"I was undertaking research on
strength development, muscle sore-
ness and weight loss for the De-
partment of Kinesiology," Katch
said. "We literally took over a TA's
lounge in the CCRB and opened the
Advanced Fitness Training Center. '
Our only publicity was a sign hung
outside of our room. People would,
have to learn of our existence
through word-of-mouth."

Store to protest the relocation of the
Ann Arbor Rod and Gun Company
last summer. The group picketed the
store on several consecutive Sat-
urdays.
DeVarti's proposal was originally
written by Mayor Gerald Jernigan, a
Republican, and Councilmember
Jerry Schleicher (R-Fourth Ward) this
summer. DeVarti rewrote the ord-
inance, responding to citizen protest
against gun stores in the fourth ward.

"We are one of two institutions in
the country that offer this particular
program; the other being the Uni-
versity of Massachusetts-Amherst,"
:Katch said.
The training center is primarily a
research facility - the Department of
Kinesiology uses omnikinetics as
part of a research lab. At each visit,
members record their weight and the
days they work out. This information
is kept on computer as data for
various reports published by mem-
bers of the Kinesiology Department.
