Jobs await minority engineers IN BRIEF

(Continued from Page 1)
America leads the world going into the 21st
Provost and Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs James Duderstadt cited a National Science
Foundation prediction that 700,000 to 800,000
jobs in science and engineering will go unfilled
by the turn of the century - a time when the
country's population, he said, is predicted to be
one-third Black and Hispanic.
DUDERST ADT stressed the need to
encourage minorities to move into science and
engineering professions. He said science and en-
gineering graduate degrees lead to management
roles, not just jobs in research and development.
Erdogan Gulari, associate dean of the College
of Engineering and a conference organizer, en-
couraged students further, telling them the aver-
age lifetime salary for an engineer with a doctor-

ate is 50 percent higher than for one with only a
bachelor's degree.
Mary Jarrett, director of financial aid in the
graduate school, headed a workshop on financial
aid, outlining loans, work/study programs, and
fellowships-free funding with no repayment plan.
"RESOURCES are available if you just
look for them. Don't think of financial aid as an
obstacle to your graduate education, you'll get
something," said Hector Richard, a Mas-
sachusetts Institute of Technology masters stu-
dent and University aerospace engineering gradu-
Organizers of the regional conference, spon-
sored by Rackham Graduate School and the Na-
tional Consortium for Graduate Degrees for Mi-
norities in Engineering, hoped to draw students
and faculty from Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsir

but almost all of the 60 faculty, students, and
administrators present were from the University.
Since they fell short of their goal, Gulari said
the University might organize transportation for
students from other schools in the future.
"I HAD other things to do today," said Vin-
cent Lane, a senior in physics at the University's
Flint campus who attended the conference held at
the Chrysler Center, "but I gave them up because
I really wanted to find out about graduate
"My biggest fear was finding funds but after
today I feel its conquerable," Lane said.
Following a workshop on applying to gradu-
ate school, Alicia Jay, an engineering senior, said
of the application process, "I didn't know how
long it took. I'm starting earlier than I would

Tornadoes kill
three in Texas
CALDWELL, Texas (AP) -
Tornadoes swept through east-central
Texas yesterday, killing three people,
injuring at least 15 and damaging
mobile homes, barns, and power
lines, authorities said.
Two people were killed in Cald-
well when a twister cut a 16-mile
path of destruction through the city,
officials said.

board. Roosevelt wanted to save the
few remaining Jews left in Europe
and called on Wallenberg to lead the
Wallenberg took down the names
of Jews and ordered Swedish
passports made for them. Because
Sweden was a neutral country, the
Jews were able to escape to that
country throughout the war.
Wallenberg was taken by the
Soviets in 1945. His whereabouts
have been unknown since that day,
and the Soviet Union has changed its

account several times.
The Soviets say Wallenberg died
in prison of a heart attack in 1947,
and have maintained that story since.
However, the October '87 issue of
Moment magazine reports that the
Swedish Wallenberg Association has
reported seeing Wallenberg as
recently as a year ago.
Lantos concluded the evening by
saying, "It is easy to get excited
about the persecution of our own
people. Raoul Wallenberg taught us
that we must speak out. If necessary
we must put our life on the line for
people you have nothing in common
with except for humanity."

Northwest claims flaps were
set before Flight 255 crash
DETROIT - Northwest Airlines has a computer-enhanced version of
the cockpit recordings of Flight 255 that indicates the flight crew set the
flaps before the plane took off and crashed, the Detroit Free Press and The
Detroit News reported yesterday.
The crash, the second-worst in the nation's history, killed 156 peo-
Regulations require that a variety of settings, including the flaps, be
checked by one of the two crew members and confirmed by the other prior
to takeoff. Investigators have said the plane's flaps were not extended in
takeoff position.
According to a National Transportation Safety Board transcript of the
cockpit voice recorder, neither pilot John Maus nor co-pilot David Dodds
talked about the flaps setting during a pre-flight checklist.
Poll shows Simon leads field
DES MOINES, Iowa - Sen. Paul Simon (D-Ill.) has moved to the
top of the Democratic presidential field in Iowa, while Senate Republican
Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) holds a narrow lead over Vice President George
Bush in the GOP race, a poll published yesterday indicated.
The poll, conducted by the Des Moines Register, said Dole was fa-
vored by 36 percent of those likely to attend the Republican precinct cau-
cuses in February, compared to 30 percent for Bush. The rest of GOP
field trailed far behind.
Among Democrats, Simon got the backing of 24 percent of those
who said they'll attend Democratic caucuses, with Massachusetts Gov.
Michael Dukakis in second at 18 percent. Rep. Richard Gephardt (D-Mo.)
who led in the last poll published in August, was third with 14 percent.
Ortega briefs Mexican leader
on Central American treaty
MEXICO CITY - Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega made a
surprise stop in Mexico City on his way home from the United States
Saturday and said he would brief President Miguel de la Madrid on a new
Nicaraguan proposal for a truce in the Contra war.
"Now is a good time to exchange views with President Miguel de la
Madrid, so he knows directly the steps my country is taking to comply"
with a Central American peace plan, Ortega told reporters when he arrived
at the Mexico City airport Saturday.
Nicaraguan and Mexican officials declined to say what Ortega was
doing yesterday.
Kemp predicts own '88 success
U.S. Rep. Jack Kemp (R-New York) defended his alliance with Pat
Robertson in the battle for Michigan Republican presidential delegates,
but said Saturday that he had a better chance of winning the 1988 GOP
nomination that either Robertson or Vice President George Bush.
Kemp predicted that he.would finish second to Robertson and ahead of
Bush in Michigan's complicated GOP presidential delegate selection
"I'm the most likely candidate who could speak to the working man
and woman on those issues important to them: their pocketbooks, jobs,
families, pensions, Social Security," said Kemp, who campaigned Satur-
day in Flint and Bloomfield Hills.
Most polls of precinct delegates show Kemp trailing both Robertson
and Bush.
Lottery winners swap ideas
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Bound by a common trait of
incredible luck, more than 100 millionaires swapped stories of the good
life during a gathering of winners of Michigan lottery jackpots.
The gathering included two former roommates who won separate
lottery jackpots while living in the same Muskegon home.
John Upchurch and David Kuh arrived in a chauffeured limousine Fri-
day at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel for Saturday's gathering of jackpot
winners celebrating the 15th anniversary of the lottery.
Kuh won $1.4 million in August 1985, which translates into 20
annual after-tax payments of $55,100. About a year later, Upchurch be-
came a $2 million winner, which means he receives $80,000 a year after
taxes for 20 years.
"It's a real strange coincidene," Upchurch said.

The ideological debate between
focusing the assembly's attention on
campus as opposed to non-campus
issues has split many of the other
THE PARTY believes students
want to be involved in student
government and want to be heard, but
the assembly is not reaching out to
"MSA can't exist in a vacuum,"
Case said. To increase the assembly's
awareness of what the students want,
he proposes conducting bi-monthly
opinion polls, and increased contact
between the assembly and the
individual college governments such
as the Engineering Council and the
LSA Student Government.
"MSA has treated other
organizations at best arrogantly and
at worst has cut them off
completely," Case said.

LSA candidate Laurel Goulding
said that by increasing contact with
the college governments the
assembly will be brought down to a
level more accessible to students.
"WE WANT to bring MSA
back to the students where it
belongs," Case added.
One of the primary planks in the
party's platform is increased contact
with the College of Engineering.
"We'resalready out on North
Campus as it is," said Change
Engineering candidate Aaron
Williams. But, he said, "their views
need to be heard just as well as
anybody else's."
A "road rally" by three
engineering societies last spring,
during which parts of the shanty on
the Diag were stolen, prompted the

assembly to refuse the three groups
their student organization status.
By increasing the assembly's
responsiveness to students' opinions
would also lead to increased respect
of the assembly by the
administration, they said.
"(The administration) sees MSA
as a bunch of people... who have no
contact with the outside world at all,"
Case said. "To any observer,
especially the administration, (MSA)
is not a representative organization."
The Change party would like to
see the creation of an orientation
workshop on the problems of racism,
sexism, and classism, but they are
opposed to the creation of a
mandatory class to be taken during
the year.
