UCAR wants 'U' to
close for holiday
(Continued from Page 1)
dance at some Martin Luther King
Day activities last year resulted from
students' obligations in class.
The University's Board of Re-
gents, which approves the Univer-
sity's official calendar, has the power
to approve administrative requests to
shut down for holidays, said interim
President Robben Fleming.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline)
said the regents have not formally
discussed the issue, although they
have received letters in support of
the holiday. He also said that the is-
sue had arisen in "casual conversa-
tion" with University administrators.
"Knowing what student class
schedules are like, I can't believe it,"
Roach said of the charges that
classes prevent students from attend-
ing the activities. Roach said that
having "two or three" classes a day
would not keep interested students
Roach said he was concerned that
declaring Martin Luther King Day an
official holiday would set a prece-
dent: "There are all sorts of special
interest groups that have holidays
which are special to them," Roach
said. "Once you start changing (the
calendar), when do you stop chang-
Fleming said the administration
did not think it was necessary to
disrupt the already planned calendar
to honor the holiday because it had
already scheduled many Martin
Luther King Day Activities for the
week prior to the national holiday.
The University is sponsoring a
symposium on Jan. 11 and 12.
University Vice-Provost for Mi-
nority Affairs Charles Moody said he
supports declaring Martin Luther
King Day an official holiday. He
added that the administration is
"trying to get the holiday for next
year." But Fleming said the
administration had no definite plans
for establishing the holiday in the
A memo released from Fleming's
office Jan. 5 asked faculty to plan
their classes - for instance, by not
having tests that day - so students
wishing to attend the Martin Luther
King Day activities would be able
to. The memo is not binding to the
The memo was signed by Flem-
ing, Michigan Student Assembly
President Ken Weine, and Harris
McClamroch, chair of the Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs, the faculty governing body.

what measures UCAR would take to
encourage boycott participation

A decade has passed since
Fleming first left the University, but
he said the problems have changed
only slightly. His method of solving
problems is also the same: "I expect
I approach things the same as I
always did," he said.
But one new issue f a c i n g
Fleming is the debate over a code of
non-academic conduct. Despite
opposition from the University
community, Shapiro strongly
advocated rules for behavior outside
Fleming has never taken a stand
on the code, which became an issue
during the early 1980s, but said he
will release such a statement next
He has already established contact
with both the faculty's Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs and the Michigan Student
Assembly, agreeing to meet with
both groups every month.
Compiled from Associated Press reports
Israeli violence continues
JERUSALEM - Israeli troops fired tear gas and rubber bullets at rock-
throwing Palestinian rioters in the occupied territories yesterday, and an
Arab shouting "God is Great!" stabbed a soldier and was shot in the
The soldier was cut in- the hand, and U.N. officials said four
Palestinians were hurt in clashes with soldiers. The army clamped curfews
on several cities and refugee camps to quell the protests.
The violence stymied Israeli efforts to restore calm and defuse
international criticism of its handling of the month-long rioting in the
occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Army gunfire has killed 24 Arabs.
Defense Minister Yitzhal Rabin said 1,978 Palestinians were arrested in
the past month. Of those, 908 were released, 300 were tried and sentenced,
six were aquitted and the rest were awaiting trial, he said.
Carlucci, Reagan to review
U. S. force in Persian Gulf
MANAMA, Bahrain - Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci said he and
President Reagan will review the size of the American force in the Persian
Gulf, but he added that the United States remains committed to defending
U.S.-flag vessels there.
In Washington, Reagan said he was not ordering any ships withdrawn
from the gulf, where Iran and Iraq have been at war since September,
Carlucci arrived in Bahrain yesterday, and a senior official of the island
sheikdom said the U.S. Navy had helped save the region from chaos.
The U.S. defense secretary began his tour Tuesday in Kuwait, which
has put 11 tankers under the American flag so the Navy can protect them,
and a ranking Soviet official arrived there as Carlucci left.
Karen Brutents, deputy chief of the International Relations Bureau of
the Soviet Communist Party's Central Committee, said the war was "one
of the most important objectives of Soviet policy in the region."
Booster failure posed no danger
BRIGHAM CITY, Utah - The failure of a section of the new space
shuttle booster rocket last month would not have affected a real launch
because the breakage occurred seconds after the test firing ended, a NASA
official said yesterday.
Engineers have determined that half of the nozzle's 8-foot diameter
boot ring popped off after the two-minute groundtest was completed Dec.
23, said J. R. Thompson, director of NASA's Marshall Space Flight
Center in Alabama.
Still, engineers remain concerned about the component's design as
they get closer to discovering what caused it to fail, Thompson said at a
news conference. It is still too early to set a new launch date for the
shuttle, he said.
Oil spill moves downriver
PITTSBURGH - Western Pennsylvania's water crisis eased yesterday
after emergency supplies were hooked up and a million-gallon oil spill
moved downstream into Ohio, where the governor said more than a
million people could be affected.
Ohio Gov. Richard Celeste declared a state of emergency for
communities preparing to close water intake pipes or step up purification
processes. Partial water service was expected yesterday afternoon in
Pittsburgh suburbs where it was cut off to about 15,000 people Monday
Meanwhile, the federal Bureau of Standards entered the investigation
into Saturday's spill which occurred when an Ashland Oil Co. tank
collapsed along the Monongahela River south of Pittsburgh.
Chicken soup is 'penicillin'
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Court of Historical Review and
Appeals, which rules on such questions as the origins of the martini and
the fortune cookie, has decided that chicken soup deserves its reputation as
Testifying last month in defense of the favored elixir of generations of
Jewish parents, Dr. Michael Le Noir of the University of California
Medical School said chicken soup indeed has medical benefits when
"Although I am not sure if I got well because of the soup or because
what my mother made tasted so awful I didn't want to drink anymore," he
Public Defender Jeff Brown, representing the opposition at the mock
trial, argued that the Greeks, Italians, and Chinese all used chicken soup
in time of illness.
Municipal Judge George Choppelas seemed swayed, however, by tes-
timony from Joel Brooks, executive director of the American Jewish
Congress, who cited the 12th century physician and rabbi Maimonides as
saying chicken soup was "very good for you, but bad for the chicken."
The chicken's side of the issue was dramatized by actor Wyman Spald-
ing, who came costumed as a Rhode Island Red and pleaded with the
audience to eat vegetables, not poultry.
