CPP Director Deborah Orr May
said that while January, February,
and March are always busy months,
this year the number of clients have
"The feeling here is intense. We
get about 10,000 client contacts in a
month," May said. "Students are
savvy about the job search. They are
starting early and really making it a
priority," she states.
Lisa Drucker, an LSA senior
and walk-in counselor, said, "January
is the busiest month because all the
students go home for winter vacation
and their parents ask if they have
found a job yet."
CPP offers more than 300 daily
and long-term programs. They in-
clude the Public Service Internship
Program and Business Internship
Program, both of which help se-
lected students find summer intern-
ships; on-campus recruitment assis-
tance; and a walk-in resume review.
Besides programs, there are many
books and pamphlets for students to
May emphasized that the office
is not only for seniors. "I would like
to see more freshmen, sophomores,
and juniors using the resources here.

Retail stores may take
over theater's first floor

The State Theater could lose two

If Hogarth purchases the Ann Ar-

lion, the State will retain its two
upstairs theaters, but the company
plans to convert the downstairs the-
aters into retail businesses.
"We don't want to create a mall,"
Hewitt said. "Instead, we want to
build new shops similar in structure
to the others on the street."
Though the building is not cur-
rently in the city's historic district,
Hogarth officials plan to seek ap-

Alan Jones, chair of the historic
commission, said the change would
not alter the theater's appearance.
"Our only interest at the commis-
sion is in keeping the character of
the outside the same while creating a
new inside," he said.
Jones said the new theater would
combine the best of both worlds -
the State will continue as an old-
fashioned movie theater while cater-
ing to local businesspeople.
The commission, though, is cur-
rently working on a proposal to la-
bel State St. and part of E. Liberty

passes, Hogarth would have to pre-
sent its plans to the commission for
But Jones said Hogarth, owned by
Borders Bookstore's Thomas Bor-
ders, has been considerate of the
city's needs. "They aren't obliged to
come to the commission, but have
done so of their own accord," Jones
"We want to be viewed as
responsible by the community," said
On Feb. 9, Hogarth developers
will meet with the historic commis-
sion to discuss the last stages of
planning for the theater. The com-
mission currently holds no ultimate
authority to deny or grant the the-
To make the building changes,
the corporation may have to expand
the structure's downstairs floor
space. Such changes must go before
the Ann Arbor Planning Commis-
sion and City Council.
If the architectural plan requires
no added floor space, the company
simply must obtain permits from
the City Building Department.

Most people go to University
Health Services if they need antibi-
otics for a sore throat or a bandage
for a twisted ankle.
But many are surprised to learn
that UHS, currently celebrating its
75th year, also offers stop-smoking
workshops, stress management pro-
grams, and vegetarian diet tips.
This year, UHS celebrates its
75th year of providing health care to
University students and faculty
members. The Service began in
1913 with a staff of six, and has
grown to include over 150 employ-
ees who last year provided patient
care to more than 21,000 students.
"The UHS offers benefits to stu-
dents even if they're not sick," said
Robin Sarris, Director of Health
Promotion and Community Rela-
tions at the center.
Few University students are aware
that the UHS is anything more than
a place for sick people to receive
"I have no idea of how Health
Services works, because I've never
been there," said Rick Diaz, a
sophomore engineering student.
"I thought that it was just a place
to stop in when you were sick," he
A stress management program is
only one of the "extra" services that
UHS provides, said Sarris. "Smoke-
Free: A Stop Smoking Program", is
an eight-session group support pro-
gram which emphasizes the devel-
opment of alternative coping tech-
niques for potential smoking situa-
The UHS also offers a Health
Promotion Program Series that pro-
vides educational discussions and
materials on a wide variety of health-
related topics. Fifty student "peer
volunteers", trained by UHS, give
talks on subjects such as contracep-
tion education, alcohol and drug
problems, and sexually transmitted
One of UHS's newest services is
an online computerized health in-
formation system designed to answer
students' health-related questions.
The system is accessed through
MTS, and questions are edited and
posted for public reading within 48
hfours on the UHS Good Health
Conference on UB.
Questions can also be submitted
anonymously, and answers received
using a code word. Two to seven
questions are submitted daily by
students, Sarris said.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Presi-

nations are "the differences of
Takeshita was equally upbeat.
Standing alongside Bush in a color-
ful departure ceremony on the South
Lawn of the White House, Takeshita
said Their session "marked a new
start for U.S.-Japan cooperation."
Both leaders pledged closer eco-
nomic and political cooperation,
Bush vowing to work to drive down
the U.S. budget deficit and Takeshita
promising that Japan would accept
They also reaffirmed a plan to as-
sist the Philippine government of
Corazon Aquino and said they would
continue to consult closely on poli-
cies toward the Soviet Union, the
Middle East, and Central America.
"Continuity will be the mark of
relations between the United States
and Japan. On occasion, we may
have differences. But these are the
differences of friends," said Bush.
"Simply put, we respect one an-
other. We need one another."
Takeshita, borrowing a phrase
from Bush's January 20 inaugural
address, told his host: "In your
words, a new breeze is blowing, Mr.
No policy initiatives had been
expected at Thursday's "working
lunch" at the White House -
Bush's first meeting with a foreign
leader since he took office= and
apparently none materialized.
Aides said the two leaders dealt
mainly with generalities and did not
discuss in any detail a new Japanese
proposal for a high-level panel to
resolve trade disputes or a joint
U.S.-Japanese jet fighter project that
has drawn criticism in Congress.
However, these issues were taken
up in a separate meeting between
Secretary of State James A. Baker III

Sousuke Uno, according to Gaston

Philippine President Ferdinand Mar-

placed on a respirator Wednesday
after emergency surgery, and his
'exhausted" wife was hospitalized
after she fainted, officials said.
Marcos, 71, was listed in critical
condition Wednesday afternoon after
his "turn for the worse," and was
transferred from his hospital room to
the intensive care unit, said Norma

Imelda Marcos, 59, fainted while
accompanying her husband as he
was being wheeled to surgery, and
fell and hit her head, nursing
supervisor Cindy Miller said.
During the 40 minute operation
an incision was made and a tube' in-
serted into Marcos' throat to make it
easier for him to breathe and to clear
his lungs. He was also hooked to a
respirator and had a slight fever,
"He's basically very, very weak
and depending completely on the
respirator to regulate his breathing,"
she said. "He had been doing better,

She was exhausted, she's gone
several days without sleep, and then
knowing what they were doing to
the president, she just passed out,"
said Marcos spokesperson Gemmo
Trinidad, adding that they expected
Mrs. Marcos to be hospitalized for
one or two days.
No one caught Mrs. Marcos as
she fell face forward onto the floor
because everyone was walking be-
hind her as Marcos was being
wheeled to surgery, Trinidad said.
An aide who answered the phone
in her hospital room said Mrs. Mar-
cos was resting comfortably but un-
able to take calls.
Marcos was admitted to the hos-
pital on Jan. 15 for treatment of
pneumonia and bronchial asthma. In
December, he was hospitalized twice

Marcos is healthy enough to stand
trial on criminal racketeering
charges accusing him of plundering

innocent to the charges and is free

Baker told Uno that "we do have
very good mechanisms right now"
for resolving trade disputes, but that
the United States was willing to en-
gage in talks with Japan to "see
whether there are other things that
should be done."
Sigur also said that the Bush ad-

agreement with Japan for a joint
project to build jet fighters, and that
no decision on it had been made.
