Enrollment for
Blacks up .1%

He said Asian Americans here "need to have ways to
acknowledge that they are Asian American" and said
currently there is nothing that does that except MSS.
"I don't want to assume that just because they're
increasing in number, we don't need to take care of
them," he said.
Vice Provost for Minority Affairs Charles Moody
said in a press release, "Our gains are still very modest.
We are not satisfied, but we are very gratified that
Black enrollment particularly has shown a slight
Sociology graduate student Barbara Ransby said she
was disappointed in the amount of the increase of Black
students on campus.
"To still be less than the University's stated goal is
a sad state of affairs. I think it should convince people
that we should still be vigilant in pressuring the
administration to implement a serious anti-racist
program," she said.
Rosa Lopez, MSS Hispanic representative, said she
was pleased with the increase of Hispanic students on
campus. But even with an increase of students, Lopez
said, that few Latino students are involved with campus
Hispanic groups or take advantage of MSS.
"I'm not pleased with student involvement... I
would hope after this term they would take the time
out to learn about how MSS and other offices can help
them," Lopez said.

Music school


with computers

First robots moved into the University
Hospital to transport meals and medicine
across the hospital. Now computer tech-
nology is filtering its way into the under-
graduate program at the School of Music.
Learning with Macintosh computers
connected to sound sampling, keyboards, and
percussion machines - which can duplicate
the sound of any instrument, up to an entire
orchestra - will make the music school a
leader in its field.
In addition to sound and video studios with
electronic keyboards and percussion machines,
software for visual displays will be used in
theatrical design and choreography.
Music theory Prof. Edward Chudacoff said
computers are already being used for film and
TV soundtracks. He said computers will give
composers, for example, new options with
which to work.
Computers make it possible to hear music
as it is being composed, but this system is
not a substitute for real instruments,
Chudacoff said. He added that there is a
historical reportoire for live performance that
could not be replaced by computerized music
because it was composed for a live orchestra.

One fear is that computers will take jobs
away from performing artists.
Prof. David Gregory, director of the School
of Music's Center for the Performing Arts
and Technology, said adding computerized
music to the performing arts will not take
jobs away from performing artists, but enable
them to perform more.
He said that new technology does not
always replace old methods, "it makes the
palette larger." As an example, he said when
cable came to TV, the networks didn't die,
instead the selection of channels was larger.
Percussion Prof. Michael Udow said the
American Federation of Musicians is studying
the impact of synthesized music on the drop-
off rate of hiring. He said the study shows
less musicians are being hired since com-
puterized music became-popular, particularly
in the Los Angeles area, where much film and
TV music is produced.
"Playing a concerto used to depend on the
availability of a live orchestra," he said "now
a performer could travel with an orchestra
consisting of a few samplers, which replicate
instrument sound and a computer packed in a
few cases," Gregory said.

City Councilmember Dave DeVarti (D-Fourth Ward) answers questions
from members of the University's College Democrats last night at the
Michigan League. DeVarti encouraged students to participate in city
government and said, "If you're lucky, and you can last out your four
years here, you're going to live here for four years or more. City policies
will affect you for the rest of your life."


The University has hired legal counsel for two women named in a
slander suit filed by a visiting professor accused of sexually assaulting
one of the women, but is not a party in the case, as was.,incorrectly
reported in yesterday's Daily.
Julie Steiner, director of the University's Sexual Assault Prevention
and Awareness Center, said the job of counselor Katta Isari does not
include involvement in any disciplinary process, as The Daily also
Also, Steiner said Isari may not discuss her clients with anyone
without their written permission. For example, if a student has been
sexually assaulted and is having problems in a class with attendance,
homework, and exams Isari can call a professor or T.A. to ask for an
extension or make-up exam. The counselor may not discuss anything
further about the student than homework.

Last year, the council released two
preliminary drafts, including emer-
gency guidelines addressing violent
crimes and a statement on political
dissent. No formal action was taken
on the documents, and the final
segment on guidelines for less vio-
lent crimes was never completed.
Both MSA and the Civil Liberties
Board strongly opposed the pro-
posals, saying they threatened free-
dom of speech and due process.
"(The proposals) didn't have built
into them many of the safeguards of
the current criminal and civil court
system," said CLB chair Peter
Railton. "I don't know if there is the
possibility of drafting any sort of
code that would meet reasonable
regress for an emergency and not be a
threat to civil liberties."
The council went back to the
drawing board, but administrators and
regents grew impatient with the slow
progress. On several occasions,
Shapiro and members of the Univer-
sity's Board of Regents threatened to
impose a code or an interim code if
the council did not act quickly.
As early as November, 1985 law
student and council co-chair Suzanne
Cohen told The Daily, "We've kind
of known our time was short from
the beginning of the semester." The

regents had just threatened to imple-
ment a code by March.
But reality proved to be different.
The consensus, it seems, was to
leave the responsibility to the Uni-
versity Council.
The council continued to meet
weekly, discussing the possiblity of
linking University sanctions to the
civil and criminal court system, until
last summer.
A student statement that called the
council a "facade of democracy" and
reiterated student opposition to any
form of academic sanctions, provoked
Livermore, then a co-chair, to de-
nounce the council and suggest they
"I don't see any chance of getting
any set of rules of conduct in that
setting." he said.
LSA senior and council co-chair
David Newblatt has attempted to
reassemble the council this fall, but
with limited success. Fewer than a
quorum of members attended the first
meeting, and Newblatt has been
unable to solicit a commitment from
other members.
This lack of cooperation and the
perception that student members are
"stalling" the code in the council
have led University officials to
reconsider preparing an administrative
code. "That is the question on the
table right now," said Robin Jacoby,
an aide to Shapiro.
