Psychologist addresses cultural
conflicts of Asian Americans
By EDDY MENG .
Asian Americans may face
identity problems when trying to
resolve cultural conflicts by
assimilating into American culture,
Psychologist Derald Wing Sue told a
group last night.
Sue, a faculty member of
California State University at
Hayward, made a keynote address to
about 35 people at the Michigan
Union as part of Asian American
Awareness Month activities.
Sue is concerned with the the
"model minority" stereotype that all
Asians share. "It (the stereotype)
implies that you are successful, you
are good with numbers, and you are
good in science," he said.
This stereotype creates the
"marginal person" - an individual
at the fringe of two cultures - in
the Asian community, he said.
"The Asian American is caught
between the traditional Asian culture
and the white American culture," he
said. He said a clash of cultural
To illustrate his point, Sue gave
a personal example. "My father
taught me that the restraint of strong
feelings is highly valued, but the
American culture emphasizes an
expression of sp( an taneous and
strong emotion. There exists a
cult' : .-f.ic:,,
The conflict also exists in his
own career as a professor. Sue
mentioned textbooks citing
assertiveness and self-disclosure as
desirable traits for good mental
health, while Asians traditionally
value just the opposite, he said.
Sue cited "cultural racism" as the
reason "American culture socializes
Asians to think that white American
culture is positive, and everything
else is negative." As a result, Asian
Americans often try to assimilate
into that culture.
Many Asian Americans, facing'
the difficulty of merging into the
unreceptive American culture, are
left feeling angry and resentful, Sue
As a counselor, Sue helps those
who have such problems, helping
them reach what he calls a stage of
security, a sense of comfort with
one's own identity, an ability to
appreciate aspects of one's own
culture, and to appreciate aspects of

Lottery tickets aren't usuallyf
priorities on a student budget.
But, until yesterday, the $28j
million jackpot was enough to
introduce a whole new breed of ticket
"Students don't go out of their
way to get tickets unless it's worth
it," said George Koklas of Capitol
Market, a grocery store on Fourth
and Washington. Capitol Market is
one of the closest stores to campus
that sells lottery tickets.
Normally, students make up only
five to 10 percent of ticket-buyers,
Koklas said. But the Lotto has
soared, Koklas said, and student
business increased yesterday by 20
percent - about 100 more students
Mohammad Issa, an employee at
Big Market on East Huron, said
Lotto buyers waited half an hour for
tickets yesterday, Issa said h e
believes students don't think smaller
jackpots are worth the ticket price.
But yesterday, he estimated that
2,000 students passed through the
store buying Lotto tickets -- a 30
percent increase from normal Lotto
business, he said
Because students usually don't

tickets, local stores such as the
Village Corner and Tice's do riot

employees said, take away from
"It's too much hassle and we
don't get enough volume to get a
machine," said a worker at Tice's.

of Regents in 1973. A story yester-
day incorrectly reported this
'Well, first I would leave enough money to buy off my
professors and then I would buy Stroh's.'

But Koklas said he didn't mind
the hassle. "We get a lot of side
business from people. coming in to
buy Lotto tickets," he said. "It really
isn't any hassle at all."
The question for most students,
however, is where to buy Lotto
tickets, and what to do with the
money if they win. Unfortunately
for the dreamers, the $28 million
was won last night by five people
who have not yet claimed their
winnings. The lucky five will take
home an estimated $290,000 over 20
years - the seventh'richest jackpot
in U.S. history.
"I bought it just for a shot at it,
and for the hell of it," said Roger
van Duinen, an engineering senior
who bought a ticket Tuesday at Big
Market. Had he won the money, van
Duinen said he would have finished
school, but without pressure to get
good grades for a better job.
"I think that I would invest about
a half of it, then pay for college,"
said Gordon Satoh, an LSA
sophomore, who didn't buy a ticket.
"Then I would buy myself a
computer and do something nice for
Mei-Ying Moy, an assistant
librarian at the Harlan Hatcher
Graduate Library, said she couldn't
imagine how much money was
really at stake - she said she wo4d

But most of the students wanted
to do more than simply invest tfie
money. "I would take my fiance Qn
a vacation to Acapulco in tlhe
summer," said Lisa Richmond,-a
sophomore in the School 'f
Some believed that the money
should be put to "good" use.
"Well, first I would leave enough
money to buy off my professors and
then I would buy Stroh's. After that,
I would move the factory up to tle
U.P., rent it for a week and hold a
big party at Moose Crossing," said
LSA sophomore Patrick Browning,
who also did not buy a ticket.
While Capitol Market has not had
any big winners, they have had
numerous smaller winners, Koklas
said. Most winners are in the $50
dollar area, winning four of the six

Pravda was the first official
publication to publish the number of
workers authorities believe will lose
their jobs as a result of the
Kremlin's drive for greater labor
efficiency and discipline.
Joblessness officially ended in the
Soviet Union in the 1930s under
Josef V. Stalin with t h e
inauguration of centralized economic
planning, and the 1977 constitution
proclaims that each citizen has a
right to a job.
The anxiety with which some
Soviets regard the possible loss of
their jobs, in a society where
unemployment was officially
eradicated more than a half-century
ago, was indicated by one reader's
letter to Pravda.
"It's like long-forgotten times are
repeating themselves," wrote S.
Solokov of Moscow.
The newspaper, however, quoted
Igor I. Prestyakov, a deputy
chairman of the Government Bureau
for Social Development, as saying
that no one willing to work will be
left jobless by perestroika.

and trade unions issued a resolution
