The Michigan Student Assembly,
working to improve communication
with students, will send its second
annual survey this weekend to all
The 20-question survey asks
students for their opinions on
campus issues, the possibility of a
code of non-academic conduct, and
groups including the assembly, and
The Daily. MSA plans to share
survey results with University ad-
The survey aims to gain student
feedback and raise student awareness
about campus issues, said survey
organizer Mike Phillips, an L S A
junior and MSA representative.
LAST YEAR, 10,000 students
received the survey, but only 1,000
returned it. This year, MSA is
pushing for a 15 percent response
The assembly hopes to spur
replies by sending letters to Resident
Advisers, encouraging them to
inform residents about the
questionnaire. To reach students off-
campus, MSA will set up survey
tables in the Fishbowl, the Michi-
gan Union, and North Campus
Commons next week.
Some representatives blame last
year's low response rate on essay-
style questions, so this year they
made the survey multiple choice.
ONE QUESTION asks: "Are
you willing to sacrifice your
constitutional rights, civil liberties,
ar civil rights to allow
administrators (only) to create what
they believe is best for the univer-
sity community?" Students then
circle responses ranging from
strongly willing to strongly oppose.
"We wanted to ask a code-related.
question without using the word
'code,"' Phillips said.
The survey also asks students if
financial difficulties would force
them to leave the University. The
assembly hopes to use the results
when they lobby the regents against
a tuition hike and for more student
financial aid, said Susan Overdorf, an
LSA sophomore and MSA

LAST SEPTEMBER, MSA
President Ken Weine and then-Vice
President Rebecca Felton distributed
an abbreviated version of the 1987
survey results to administrators at
one of their monthly pre-Regents
Felton, an LSA senior, said she
remembered administrators were
interested in the survey results but
didn't have an opportunity to read it
or share their reactions that day.
She said University Vice
President for Academic Affairs and
Provost James Duderstadt requested a
full copy of the results. Duderstadt
was out of town and unavailable for

Appeals court bans drug
testing for railroad workers
SAN FRANCISCO - A requirement that 200,000 railroad workers
undergo drug and alcohol testing after major accidents or rule violations
was declared unconstitutional yesterday by a federal appeals court.
In a 2-1 vote, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the rules, in
effect since February 1986, violated the constitutional ban of unreason-
able searches because they allowed testing without evidence that an in-
dividual worker was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
"Accidents, incidents or rule violations, by themselves, do not create
reasonable grounds for suspecting that tests will demonstrate alcohol or
drug impairment in any one railroad employee, much less an entire train
crew," said the opinion by Judge Thomas Tang.
GM defends executive bonuses
DETROIT - General Motors Corp. is defending its stock bonuses for
5,000 executives, in a year when hourly workers are going without profit-
sharing, as part of a risk and reward philosophy.
The top executives will divide about $184.6 million in stock under a
new bonus program, "so that both the managers of the business and the
shareholders are ready to share in the business over the long term," GM
spokesperson Patricia Molloy said.
On Tuesday, however, as it had in 1987, GM said its $3.6-billion
profit in the past year was too little to trigger profit-sharing payments for
hourly workers, under a formula negotiated with the United Auto Workers
union in 1984.
UAW Vice President Donald Ephlin, head of the union's GM depart-
ment, said executives should not receive bonuses if profits were insuffi-
cient to warrant profit-sharing for the workers.
Young drops opposition to JOA
DETROIT - Mayor Coleman Young dropped his opposition yester-
day to a partial merger of Detroit's daily newspapers.
Young said he is convinced the Detroit Free Press will close if a joint
operating agreement with The' Detroit News is denied. That would cost
more jobs than the partial merger, he said.
"I consider a JOA as a newspaper and a half, or maybe a quarter, but
that's better than one newspaper," Young said at a news conference.
"I have reason to believe those talks will culminate in a fair deal for
the union," Young said. But he would not elaborate on who he talked to
or what assurances he received.
The newspapers seek a limited antitrust exemption under the Newspa-
per Preservation Act, which would enable them cut costs by merging
business operations while maintaining separate news and editorial depart-
Inmate details drug scandal
WASHINGTON - A Columbian drug cartel made $200 million a
month in profits in the United States, laundered the cash through Pana-
manian banks, and spent some of the, money to bankroll the U.S.-backed
Contra rebels in Nicaragua, an imprisoned accountant testified yesterday.
"I am a capitalist," Cuban-born Ramond Milian Rodriguez said as he
detailed the workings of an.intricately organized drug empire he said paid
him $2 million to $3 million a month for his ability to make the money
appear to be of legitimate origin.
Rodriguez also told a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee that his
money-laundering operation had ties to both the CIA and the Contras
fighting Nicaragua's leftist Sandinista government. Neither connection
was pursued in open session by the panel, which is investigating
Panama's involvement in drug smuggling.
Four-cent stamp from camp
delivers - 22 years later
MONROE, Mich. (AP) - A postcard written in November 1966 has
arrived 22 years after being mailed from boot camp.
The card was mailed with a 4-cent stamp by Jim Finley when he was
18 and beginning the rigors of military training in Fort Knox, Ky.
"The front shows a sergeant with a big sickle slicing four guys' hair
off the top," Finley said. "It looks like a lot of old water marks on it, like
it's been lying somewhere."
Finley, a 40-year-old resident of Wayne County's Brownstown
township, said he mailed the card as a joke to his father, then a barber.
Finley wrote: "I'm not feeling too good because tomorrow we get
those (medical) shots from that gun. One guy told us that a guy jerked his
arm, and it put a big cut in his arm."
U.S. Postal Service officials in Louisville, Ky., said they didn't know
anything about the card. It has a Jan. 22, 1988, Louisville postmark.
