Speaker links drinking, fitness
BY MICAH SCHMIT
If you have to take an important
exam or participate in an athletic
competition, don't go drinking two
or even three nights before, warns
Kelly Lamb, health promotion spe-
cialist at University Health Services.
Speaking yesterday afternoon on
"Alcohol and Fitness" as part of na-
tional Alcohol Awareness Week,
Lamb told a sparse crowd that alco-
hol has an effect which lingers more
than 48 hours.
Lamb said many students are
aware of the irritability, hunger,
aches and pains, headaches, dehydra-
tion, and decreased judgment which
occur 12 to 24 hours after alcohol
But suprisingly the chemical ef-
fects of alcohol linger beyond 48
"The effects, including decreased
alertness, impaired coordination, and
muscle weakness are still apparent 72
hours after drinking," Lamb said.
She also said athletes need to be
"Alcohol metabolism is preferred
over glucose by the liver. This leads
to low blood sugar as well as a
buildup of lactic acid in the mus-
cles," she said.
Fatigue, which stems from lactic
acid buildup - a negative by-product
of exercise - impairs athletes' abil-
ity to perform at their peak.
Scott Grove, an LSA junior, said
drinking the night before affects his
physical performance during the day.
"When I get really drunk it makes it
hard to concentrate, makes you mind-
dead.... The next day I can't study,
it's like being on a partial buzz."
-drinking after eating high carbo-
hydrate or fatty foods decreases the
effect of alcohol;
-oral contraceptives help speed the
rate at which alcohol is removed
from the body;
-having a drink or two a day does
not decrease the risk of heart attack;
-alcoholic beverages are generally
highly caloric - about 80 calories
for shots and light beers and over 200
calories for mixed drinks; and,
-cholesterol levels rise because fat
metabolism is decreased due to the
presence of alcohol.
Today, Bush will campaign in the
state. He will speak to students at the
D u k a k lsUniversity of Michigan-Dearborn in
Cortinued from Page 1
"It was a good speech. He meets
the issues. From Bush, it's just rhe-
toric," said Peter Fanos of Flint.
Even though Dukakis trails in the
polls, Fanos expressed confidence
that Dukakis will "do a lot better
than people think."
In the afternoon, the vice
president will appear before students
with former President Gerald Ford at
Royal Oak Kimball High School and
will then travel to Saginaw for a rally
at a local high school.

the major issue," Anderson said.
"And I expect numerous concerns
and objections to be raised,"
Committee members said
discussion on that issue could begin
next Tuesday, but committee chair
Henry Griffin, a chemistry professor,
said they will probably not reach a
conclusion next week.
"There's not a clear consensus on
how we'll go on that issue," Griffin
said. "We are very favorable to
courses of this type, but there is
some feeling... that requiring this
specific course might not be fair to
people who have already proposed
courses of this type."
The students and faculty who
proposed the course maintain,
however, that specifically requiring
all LSA students to elect the class in
their first two years is integral to
their proposal - and to the
University's commitment to
fighting racism on campus.
All LSA curriculum additions or
changes must be approved by the
LSA curriculum and executive
committees before going to an LSA
(an interdenominational campus fellowship)

ABC says U.S. rejected arms
for hostages deal last year
WASHINGTON - ABC News reported last night that Iran, desperate
for weapons, secretly offered the U.S. government the freedom of four of
the nine American hostages held in Lebanon in exchange for 16 U.S.-
built jet fighters in Chile's arsenal.
According to ABC, the offer came through intermediaries and set off
"alarm bells" at the State Department. Secretary of State George P.
Shultz "emphatically said no" and the $170 million deal was turned down.
In a complicated scheme that began last December, ABC said, Iran
tried to arrange for Israel to deliver 16 Chilean owned F5 jet fighters
deliver in sections to Thailand. From there, they were to be sent to Iran.
According to the ABC story, the proposed swap had the endorsement
of Hashemi Fafsanjani, speaker of the Iranian parliament, and it involved
arms dealers and intermediaries in Chile, Israel, and Argentina.
'Rust Belt' economy picks up
WASHINGTON - Income growth in the "Rust Belt" manufacturing
states is staging a comeback after lagging behind the national average for
most of the 1980s, the government said yesterday.
The administration has pointed with pride to the six-year economic
recovery, the longest during peacetime since the Civil War. However,
critics say the nation's heartland has not shared in the expansion.
In a report on non-farm personal income, the Commerce Department
said, in general, states bordering the Pacific and Atlantic coasts continue
to have better income growth than the states in between, but the gap in
the growth rates is narrowing.
Growth in the Great Lakes region, which lagged behind during the
years of the overvalued dollar and exploding trade deficit, was 7.7
percent in the 12 months ending in June compared with 6.2 percent
earlier in the decade.
Missile destruction begins
TUCSON, Arizona - Eleven Soviet inspectors watched Tuesday as
U.S. military personnel using power saws began the historic destruction
of Air Force cruise missiles under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces
Led by Army Major Gen. Vladimir Medvedev, the Soviets arrived at
Davis-Monthan Air Force Base to watch 41 ground-launched cruise
missiles, 41 protective canisters for the mobile weapons and seven
transporter erector launchers be cut in half over the next few days.
Nuclear warheads, fuel and guidance-related equipment have been
removed from each weapon, and the warheads have been returned to the
Department of Energy, which stores American nuclear weapons, said
Capt. Kendell Pease, an OSIA spokesman.
A total of 443 intermediate-range cruise missiles deployed in Great
Britain and Europe are scheduled for destruction, all within the first three
years of the treaty.
Allais wins Nobel prize
STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Maurice Allais, a prolific theorist whose
ideas on balancing supply and demand helped rebuild the French
economy after World War II, won the Nobel Prize for economics
Allais became mentor to a generation of post-war economists and to
all the people who were in charge of the biggest enterprises and the state
planning apparatus. He developed formulas to enable large enterprises,
particularly public ones, to keep an economy in balance by regulating
prices and allocating their resources.
According to the citation, Allais was honored "for his pioneering
contributions to the theory of markets and efficient utilization of
After the award was announced, the 77-year old economist said he had
given up hope of ever winning the prize. "I've been mentioned so many
times before. I just didn't think I would get it."
Alaskan ad agency flips
photo of Mt. McKinley
JUNEAU, Alaska - Those familiar with Mount McKinley may have
noticed something amiss about the photograph of North America's
highest peak that graces the cover of Alaska'a latest tourist brochure.
The mountain is backward, a deliberate move by the advertising agency
that created 700,000 brochures for the state.
"We think the way it came out was the state's prettiest cover ever.
Only two or three people have noticed the switch without first being told
of it," said Rod Bradley of Bradley Advertising in Anchorage.
The reversal caught the attention of the Alaska Visitors Association,
which awarded Bradley Advertising, the state tourism department and the
Alaska Tourism Marketing Council its Oosik Award for the biggest
tourism-related mistake of the year at its annual convention in Sitka last
weekend. Oosik refers to part of the anatomy of the male walrus.
