manager
By RYAN TUTAK
The Michigan Student Assembly last night unanimously passed a
resolution demanding that the University administration not interfere
with the Campus Broadcasting Newtork and that it allow CBN to ap-
point a student general manager.
"We insist that CBN retain its authority and hire its own (student)
general manager," said MSA's Student Rights Committee Chair Sarah
Riordan, an LSA sophomore, who co-introduced the resolution.
The resolution is a response to a letter that Vice President for Stu-
dent Services Henry Johnson mailed to CBN General Manager Paul
LaZebnik last week suggesting that the CBN Board of Directors post-
pone the selection of next year's general manager.
The University administration told Johnson and Union Director
Frank Cianciola to investigate other ways of operating CBN, the gov-
erning board of campus radio stations WCBN and WJJX, Johnson said.
One of these alternatives could involve appointing a "professionally
trained" general manager, according to the letter from Johnson.
Johnson could not be reached for comment yesterday.
LSA junior Emily Burns, one of two students applying for the job,
criticized the University's efforts to control CBN. "The University is
taking away one of the most valuable experiences that is offered," she
said.
MSA's Communications Committee Chair Robert Bell, an LSA
junior who co-introduced the resolution, said the University's proposal
to appoint a general manager at CBN is representative of its larger goal
to kill student expression on campus.
The University is also regulating students with the recently approved.
Policy on Discriminatory Acts, he said.
"If (CBN) is not student led, it's not student run," Bell said.
In other business, the assembly passed a resolution reiterating its
demand for the resignation of LSA Dean Peter Steiner after a two-
month investigation of his "series of racist comments." Also, LSA
sophomore Delro Harris was reappointed chair of the Minority Affairs
Committee.

LARNACA, Cyprus (AP) - A
hijacked Kuwaiti jumbo jet took off
for Algeria yesterday afternoon after
hijackers freed 12 more passengers in
what they called a gesture of good-
will.
The blue-and-white Boeing 747
left Larnaca at 1:17 a.m. Wednesday
(6:17 p.m. EDT yesterday) with three
members of Kuwait's royal family
still among the hostages.
About 40 people, including the
six to eight hijackers, remained
aboard the Kuwait Airways jet. It
was commandeered eight days at
Mashhad, Iran. It was subsequently
allowed to land at Larnaca because it
was running out of fuel.
One of those freed said three
members of Kuwait's ruling family,
Fadel Khaled al-Saban and his sisters
Anware and Ebtesam, still were on
the plane, said Dr. George Olympios
at Larnaca General Hospital, where
the freed hostages were taken.
A nurse at the hospital said the
freed hostages "seem to be OK. There
weren't any visible injuries." She
added that they were very tired.
Earlier in the day, the hijackers
said they had donned "death shrouds"
and had renamed the jetliner "the
plane of martyrdom'."
The 12 passengers walked off the
aircraft at 10:25 p.m. (3:25 p.m.
EDT) and got into three ambulances
as the flashing lights from the plane
and the emergency vehicles illumi-
nated the runway.
After the released passengers left
the plane, a hijacker told the tower
they were two Palestinians with Jor-
danian passports and 10 others of

unannounced nationality who were
sick, poor, or whose families had
numerous children.
Calling the release a "goodwill"
gesture, the hijackers said the Jorda-
nian nationals were freed as a
"present to the uprising in Pales-
tine," the 4-month-old Arab rebellion
in Israeli-occupied territories.
The hijackers have demanded that
Kuwait free 17 pro-Iranian terrorists,
all but one of them Shiites, con-
victed for a chain of bombings there
in December 1983. Kuwait refuses.
Speaking in classical, Koranic
Arabic, they said: "We have decided

Special to the Daily
DETROIT- Last year the Detroit
Tiger's regular season ended with
Frank Tananna handling a tap to
the mound to give the Tiger's the
American League East crown. And
today, as the Tiger's opened their
home season defense of the title,
it started the same way as it ended
- Frank Tananna.
The hometown hero this time
snared a shot off Texas Ranger

lead off hitter, Oddibe McDowell,
to officially announce the new
season.
And the results were the same
as that fateful day last October -
a Tiger victory, with Tananna
masterfully handling the batters,
double play help from the Bengal
infield, and a 50,000 plus crowd
going home happy.

clothes and that either all our 17 bro-

shall meet, in our shrouds, in the
heaven of eternal happiness."

April 5 after it took off from
Bangkok, and-was diverted to the
norhteastern Iran city of Mashhad,
where 57 passengers were released.

The Jniversity's research guide-
lines allow information provided by
sponsors to be kept confidential, but
Division of Research Development
and Administration officials indicated
yesterday that more information is
being kept secret.
The announcement that
methodology used by researchers
might also be kept confidential at a
sponsor's request was announced at
the monthly meeting of the Research
Policies Committee. The RPC acts
as an advisory board to Vice Presi-
dent for Research Linda Wilson.
The disclosure surprised some
RPC members and aroused concern
in others.
Wilson expressed concern that
limiting the disclosure of researchers'
methodology might be hampering
their ability to completely publish
their results.
"We don't usually generate results
which we cannot share because we

are in the business of discovering and
disseminating knowledge," she said.
Wilson indicated she would have
someone from her office look into
the impact of including the method-
ologies - known as protocols - as
information that may be confidential.
The research policy, which was
approved by the University's Board
of Regents last April, has been im-
plemented by the Office of the Vice
President for Research.
The implementation of the policy'
may allow companies sponsoring
campus research to keep information
confidential for up to five years.
According to Wilson, information
leaked to rival companies could result
in a loss of competitiveness for the{
sponsor.
Sponsors would not want to. con-

Women seek careers in

Third in a three part series
Kirstin Fazzari hopes to be an
astronaut flying for the Air Force
some day. And the first-year LSA
student is making her start as a cadet
in the University's ROTC Air
Force.
More women than ever are join-
ing the Reserve Officer Training
Corps program with the intention of
pursuing a career in the military -
rather than just getting a free educa-
tion and serving the four year mini-
mal obligation of service - said
Alicia O'Rourke, assistant professor
of military science at the University
Army ROTC.

"The military has been tradition-
ally a male world. Women are new.
The opportunity for women to move
up is very good," she said.
O'ROURKE, a member of the
Part
3
Army for 13 years and the only
woman officer in the University's
Army ROTC, said that because of
the success of women officers today,
the numbers of women joining the

military with lifetime career plans
are steadily increasing.
"Most men know someone who
has been in the military - their
dads, uncles, or brothers. Most
women don't (know other women in
the military). There are more women
in the military today who can act as
mentors. Now it's easier for women
to see themselves in that environ-
ment."
At the University, 22 of the 94
cadets in Army ROTC and 23 of 108
cadets in Air Force ROTC are
women. Of the 163 midshipmen in
the Navy ROTC, 11 are women, 3
of whom are in the Marine Corps.
The ROTC program trains stu-

nilitary
dents to be officers in the Army,
Navy, Marines, or Air Force. Mili-
tary officers must have a college de-
gree as opposed to the enlisted mili-
tary members who do not need a
college education.
"MORE females are coming
into the program for the commission
than the men. They are joining for
the gold bar on their shoulder. That's
what they want," O'Rourke said.
Kelly Pastva, a midshipman in
the ROTC Marine Corps and senior
in the School of Engineering, hopes
to work as a logistics officer next
year - a position in which she

Johnson nixes plans
for Dag Vietnam Day

By MARINA SWAIN
A request for a May 7 celebration
on the Diag honoring Vietnam vet-
erans was rejected yesterday because
it would violate a University rule
which restricts Diag rallies and
demonstrations that use amplified
sound from noon to 1:00 p.m.
Henry Johnson, Vice President
for Student Services - who had fi-
nal authority over the decision -
said he rejected the request because of
the rule and because he said the cele-
bration, which would feature live
bands, might disturb students study-
ing in nearby libraries.
"They can have that kind of all
day gathering some place else,"
Johnson said. "We have a policy
which speaks to the amplification of
sound (to only be permitted) from
12:00 to 1:00 (p.m.)," he said.
