'M' ends
99 meet
Saturday, the fourth-ranked Wol-
verines ended Iowa's 99 match dual-
meet winning streak with a 23-17
win in the finals of the Great Amer-
ican Duals Classic in Indianapolis.
The Hawkeyes, winners of nine of
the past 11 national championships
and the last 15 Big Ten titles, had
not lost a dual meet since 1974.
Before reaching the finals, the
Wolverines defeated Purdue, 32-5,
and Indiana, 26-9. The Hawkeyes
advanced by defeating Ohio State,
* 33-8, and Minnesota, 26-13.
Michigan coach Dale Bahr waited
a long time to defeat Iowa coached
by his former college teammate, Dan
Gable. The two schools hadn't met
in a dual meet since 1983 when Iowa
won, 44-0. Gable felt that Michigan
wasn't competitive enough for the
Hawkeyes, so he left Michigan off
of the Hawkeyes schedule.
"Since I came to Michigan (in
1978) it has been a dream of mine to
get a crack at the Hawkeyes," said
Bahr. "We went here with the
intention of beating Iowa and we did.
It was a great win for Michigan."

'U' urged
to begin
In an effort to push for a Korean
language program to be implemented
at the University, the Korean Student
Association invited faculty and
members of local churches and busi-
nesses to support the program at 'a
conference last Saturday.
The speakers urged the University
to support the program - one that
many other universities offer - to
meet growing student interest and to
recognize the Korean language and
culture as part of the Department of
Asian Languages.
About 90 people, both students
and community members, attended
the conference to discuss the forma-
tion of a Korean language program at
the University.
Graduate students have been vol-
unteering to teach Korean to students
for no credit because the University
does not have a Korean language
Members of KSA also collected
3,500 signatures in a petition drive

KSA needs to find a faculty ad-
viser for the Korean language pro-
gram before it can be proposed to the
LSA Curriculum Committee, the fi-
nal decision-making body for courses
at the University.
Though many professors have
supported the program, none have
agreed to be faculty adviser, Lee said.
And for a permanent Korean stud-
ies program to continue, a minimum
of $2 million is needed - to hire
two faculty members to teach Korean
and to cover library costs, said
Spencer Rhee, KSA's treasurer.

The University of Michigan, the
site where John Kennedy first pro-
posed the Peace Corps in October
1960, now has the sixth largest num-
ber of graduates who have entered the
peace corps.
As a state, Michigan ranks sixth
in the number of Peace Corps vol-
0 unteers it has produced, over half of
whom are in African countries.
Today the Peace Corps serves
over 60 developing countries world-
wide, reaching out to "help people
help themselves," said Daniel Gil-
bert, the public affairs speaker for the
Peace Corps' Detroit office.
"Peace Corps service is career
enhancing. In the Peace Corps, vol-
unteers are gaining skills which
make them more marketable," said
Gilbert. "In specialized areas you
gain invaluable experience."
The Peace Corps also offers
graduate job and education oppor-
tunities. After volunteers return, they
have access to a hot-line job listing
service. In addition, 34 schools na-
tionwide give special admittance and
financial consideration to returning
"There are possibilities for people
of all different backgrounds," said
Louise Baldwin, the Peace Corps co-
ordinator at the University's Interna-
tional Center.
Baldwin, who received a master's
degree from the University and is
currently a doctoral student in an-
thropology, served as a Peace Corps
volunteer in Afghanistan from 1973
to 1976.

riod. The training usually takes place
in the country in which volunteers
will be serving. It consists of lan-
guage, cross-cultural, and technical
"We will not send a person any-
where where he or she will be in
danger" of encountering health prob-
lems, Baldwin said. However, she
admits the individual is always at
risk in a foreign country.
Part of the training entails a
medical orientation and immuniza-
tion and teaches volunteers how to
keep this risk at a minimum. Bald-
win said a volunteer will rarely con-
tract anything more serious than in-
testinal problems, if anything at all.
Peace Corps volunteers live as
part of the local communities, either
with host families, alone, or with
other volunteers. Volunteers are left
to decide what is the most desirable
living situation for them.
, "The Peace Corps is not for ev-
erybody, but it can be very reward-
ing. I encourage Michigan students
to think about it," said Baldwin.
And many University students are
thinking about the Peace Corps -
but not in the idealistic way that -
Kennedy proposed it.
Many people feel that the Central
Intelligence Agency is hiding behind
and working with the Peace Corps.
Others feel the Peace Corps is being
used as a tool to supply aid that only
serves to benefit the United States
economically and militarily, said a
member of the Latin American
Solidarity Committee.

At yesterday's party beginning
Ann Arbor's Democratic mayoral
election campaign, Democratic can-
didate Ray Clevenger boasted of his
experience in different levels of+
government. Clevenger was joined
by about 100 Democrats and party
bigwigs at the Bird of Paradise.
Citing his experience as a member
of U.S. Congress and Chair of the
Michigan Corporation and Securities
Commission and of the Great Lakes
Basin Commission, Clevenger said,
"I know something about govern-
ment and the problems of govern-
ment. This is what convinced me to

the city's $1.6 million budget deficit.
Clevenger bucked the city council
and Republican Mayor Gerald Jerni-
gan by unequivocally coming out
against any rollback of the Headlee
Amendment to solve the deficit.

Michigan Constitution stipulates
that property taxes cannot rise faster

need the most efficient government
we can possibly have... We have
never had responsiveness from city
government on improving effi-

Clevenger said when he was chair
of the state's Corporation and
Securities Commission in the early
1960s, he took steps to improie
efficiency, and "saved 17 percent of
that budget" by reorganizing the
commission's bureaucracy.
Clevenger said he could do the
same for Ann Arbor's city govern-
ment: "I say let's put the city bu-
reaucrats to the test."
Clevenger admitted that he may
have not been the Democrats' first
choice as candidate for mayor. "You
