Seniors apply for jobs, schools

offers a two-credit class that gives
students instructions on the job
search process, including interview-

Pamela Ruderman, a LSA senior,
will graduate with a B.A in commu-
nications. She is hoping to attend
journalism school next year.
"Now that I'm a senior, and I
have to decide what I'm going to do
for real' - it's a bit scary," Rud-
erman said. "It makes me rethink my
career goals. One of the big prob-
lems that people our age face is that
we think whatever job or career we
choose now is going to be a career
choice for life."
Debra Lederer graduated in De-
cember and has decided to stay in
Ann Arbor to start her job search.
Lederer has her days filled - intern-
ing at the office of human resources
and development, studying for her
GRE's, and volunteering at the
Pound House. So far, she has had 12
interviews and plans to continue her
job search.
Matthew Hepp says his job
search should be over within the
next month. A December graduate of
the engineering school, Hepp has
had eight interviews and hopes to
land a job with National Semi-Con-
ductor. He says he has had an easier

time than LSA students getting in-
terviews because the engineering
school has a better placement ser-
While some students are applying
for jobs, others are applying to
graduate schools. Denise Gold, a se-
nior majoring in political science,
has applied to seven law schools.
She's heard from four schools, but is
awaiting a response from her top
choice, Northwestern University.
Economics major Margie Han is
unsure of her next career move. De-
spite recent cutnacxs inmte tinancial
industry, Han would like to spend a
couple of years working for a bank.
Just as students are looking for
the right job, companies are looking
for the right graduates. Robert
Savard, senior administrator of Cor-
porate Human Resources for Aetna
Life and Casualty, visited the Uni-
versity for three days looking for se-
niors who have "good financial and
analytical abilities and also those
students who have good interper-
sonal skills."
Every year, Aetna interviews
more than 100 students from the
University for about 12 positions
ranging from management to claims
to underwriting. Savard said he's
looking for the balanced student -
one who has combined academics,
extracurricular activities, and work
experience into the past four years.

Engineers to
This year's engineering graduates
can expect higher first-year salaries
than can seniors in most other ma-
jors, according to a salary survey
conducted by the National Associa-
tion for Career Planning, Placement,
and Recruitment.
Petroleum engineers are being
offered the highest-paid jobs for first-
year graduates, according to th~e
study. Petroleum and allied products
employers are expected to offer first-
year job seekers an average o f
Mechanical engineers in first-year
jobs are drawing salary offers
averaging $29,136 and electrical en-
gineers are averaging $29,100.
On the other end of the pay scale,
journalism and advertising majors
are predicted to earn the lowest aver-
age salaries for first-year worke'rs,
the study showed. They are expected
to be paid $18,624 and $18,576, re-

Em bassy fire -Assoiated Pess
Soviet firefighters chaperoned by U.S. Marines extinguished a fire at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow yesterday.
No one was injured in the fire that began on an unoccupied floor in the building. A spokesperson said the blaze
"might be construction related." A promised new embassy building is five years behind schedule and U.S. of-
ficials suspect that construction workers have riddled the building with listening devices.

Campus Gi
The map below lists the major crimes reported
during the month of January in the campus and student
housing areas.
Monthly crime statistics compiled by the
University's Department of Public Safety and Security
indicate a total loss of $90,964 in personal and
University property due to larceny - theft from an
unlocked area- for the month of January. This figure
is slightly less than last January's loss of $136,200,
Director of the Department of Public Safety Leo
Heatley said.
HE A T L E Y said the greatest monetary loss of
University property was the theft of camera and video
equipment valued at $19,000 from the Kresge III
medical research building.
Although the theft is still under investigation,
Heatley believes the suspect was someone who had
internal access to the building.
January crime statistics also show the number of
thefts within the University's residence halls.
Stockwell and West Quad reported the highest number
of larcenies last month; each listed 11.

rime Scene
IN ADDITION, two sexual assaults were reported
to campus security in January. An incident of first
degree criminal sexual conduct - any unwarranted
sexual activity resulting in penetration- occurred in
South Quad on Jan. 23. A second sexual assault
classified as fourth degree criminal sexual conduct -
sexual contact with no aggravating circumstances -
was reported in the Taubman Health Care Center,
Heatley said.
Julie Steiner, Director of the University's Sexual
Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC),
noted that according to the Federal Investigation
Bureau, only 10 percent of all sexual assaults are
reported to authorities.
"THESE ARE only reported sexual assaults. If
there were only two reported, it means that 20 went
without being reported," Steiner said.

Heatley of campus security and Jerry Wright of the

Bush, Dukakis exult; dropouts expected

By The Associated Press
Republican George Bush and
Democrat Michael Dukakis exulted
in their impressive New Hampshire
primary victories yesterday while the
rest of the presidential field jockeyed
for position in a campaign without
clear, commanding front-runners.
"I think you're seeing a mean
George Bush," said Sen. Bob Dole,
who blamed his defeat in N e w
Hampshire on distortions he said
were spread by the vice president's
Sen. Paul Simon said he would
drop out of the race next week if he
doesn't win either in South Dakota

or Minnesota, while former Arizona
Gov. Bruce Babbit and former Dela-
ware Gov. Pete du Pont have sched-
uled news conferences for today
where it is expected they will with-
draw from the race.
Tennessee Sen. Albert Gore
dismissed his Democratic rivals as
"peas in the same pod" who created
platforms expressly for Iowa and
New Hampshire which would fail in
the South.
There was fresh talk that the

muddled races might produce no clear
winner before the nominating con-
ventions. New York Mayor Ed Koch
said he thought the Democrats would
draft a nominee, either New York
Gov. Mario Cuomo or New Jersey
Sen. Bill Bradley, but the Democratic
national chair, Paul Kirk, disagreed.

These studies are inaccurate,
Drewnowski said, because fat people
often diet. He said the eating habits
of obese people involve periods of
binging on high-fat and high-sugar
foods, followed by periods of inten-
sive low-calorie dieting.
"When people lose weight, they
can usually lose it very easily," he
said, "but they will almost always
regain the weight."
He plans to target obese people
from outside the University because
students and faculty generally have a
better medical knowledge of the im-
portance of diet and exercise and,
therefore, have better diets.
His study will not address the re-
lation of obesity to genetics, al- I
though he said there may be a link
between metabolic rate and weight
