University alumnus and 60
Minutes reporter Mike Wallace has
donated $500,000 to the University
Journalism Fellows Program.
The program, which originally
limited its funding to journalists in
the liberal arts and humanities, has
expanded to include specialists in
business and medical writing, as
well as investigative reporting, said
Program Director and Associate
Professor of Communication
Wallace, who Eisendrath called "a
very enthusiastic alumnus," has
many interests in the program.
The donation, Wallace said, is an
"appropriate way to pay back the
University in recognition of all that

"There's a family tradition about
Michigan," he said.
Wallace's uncle, Leo Sharfman,
chaired the economics department
from 1928 to 1954, and many of
Wallace's relatives attended the
University. Wallace began his work
in broadcasting in Grand Rapids and
Wallace and Eisendrath became
acquainted through Wallace's
involvement with the Livingston

program which Eisendrath founded.

During graduation, several

When Katherine Hymon, head
cook at Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority,
was asked how she has survived for
44 years at the sorority, she replied,
as if to conceal her ancient secret, "I
don't know. I just did it."
But then, with a smile, she gave
in and revealed, "I had to work hard
all my life and I've just kept o n
doing that ever since... besides, I
really love the girls."
Hymon was honored with a
surprise party Friday afternoon,
attended by fellow cooks a t
University fraternities and sororities.
The Student Buyers' Association,
a bulk purchasing food service
organization which serves University
fraternities, sororities, and co-ops,
hosted the party at the Michigan
Humanities. established the Fellows
Program in 1973 and, while the
program has expanded to include
specialist positions, most of those
positions will remain "for generalist
journalists," Eisendrath said.
The program's ten positions for
the fall of 1988 are open for
application to any professional
journalist whose work appears
regularly in an American news
outlet, and who has had five years
experience. Once the journalists have
been chosen, they will each design
their own course of study, either
strictly professional or eclectic,
nors long-time cook
More than 30 cooks presented
Hymon with an apron they signed,
commemorating Hymon's 44 years
of service to the sorority. Prizes of
large hams, blocks of cheeses, and
juice were raffled off to the guests
who enjoyed refreshments as they
traded recipe secrets and stories of
A week after she arrived from
North Carolina at age 18, Hymon
started to work at Alpha Epsilon Phi
as a housekeeper. Four years later,
her cooking skills were uncovered
when she filled in for the head cook
during an emergency. Hymon has
been head cook ever since.
Frieda Green, a 35-year veteran
cook and close friend to Hymon,
noted her "friendliness, warmth, and
her way of making you laugh."
Marylou Warchock, business
manager of the Student Buyers'
Association, said she admires
Hymon's "knack for handling
people." When things get tough,
Warchock said, she has a "good
attitude and beautiful smile."
Hymon remembers the days when
there were only 25 to 30 women in
the house and meals were more
formal. She said she looks forward
to the sorority's annual parents'
weekend when mothers of current
sorority members, who ate her meals
more than 20 years ago, come back
LSA sophomore Debbie Katz, a
steward at the sorority house, said
that Hymon's stir-fried chicken and
pecan rolls are house favorites.

Gay rights group criticizes regents
(Contnued from Page 1)
with individual regents in the future.
The protesters cited a statement
Baker made at a March, 1984, re-
gents' meeting criticizing a policy
statement by former University
President Harold Shapiro. The
statement read that the University
should not use sexual orientation as
a factor in making educational or
"There are some areas where dis-
crimination, in the sense of making
choices, is appropriate," Baker said
at the meeting. "For example, a ho-
mosexual should not be employed in
a summer camp dealing with small
children, just as a male attendant
should not be employed in a female
Adrian Johnson said Baker's
statement suggested "that we're au-
tomatically going to molest anyone
who's the same sex as we are."
Baker said yesterday that his re-
mark was taken out of context, and
would not comment on whether he
would apologize for his statements.
LaGROC leader Carol Wayman
said the decision to hold the sit-in in
the second floor bathrooms was a
symbolic response to Baker's inves-
Baker said that the allegations of
homosexual liaisons were "a serious
enough matter for the University to
investigate... I do not care to ignore
the responsibilities of my office."
Henry Johnson told the group of
protesters that, although actions
such as the sit-in demonstrated their
concern over gay rights, they would
also have to file grievances through
the University and through civil
courts if they wanted to affect a
change in the treatment of gays.
Demonstrations such as the sit-in
"dramatize the felt urgency of the
problems, but those problems are
resolved in the courts," he said.
But a protester who identified
himself as Chris said gays were in a
"Catch-22" situation, because they
put themselves in jeopardy by filing
"I live in a fraternity... if (the
other members) find out I'm here, I
face serious repercussions," Chris
Holmes fielded comments from
the protesters and said he would try
to bring them to the attention of the
other administrators, but would not
say if he would recommend a change
in the bylaw.
Fleming was out of town yester-
day and could not be reached for
comment on whether he would meet
