LSA junior Annette Waters had-
never considered a career in hospital
administration until a friend told her,
"It's you. You just don't know it
yet, but it's you."
So she applied for an internship
in the Health Services Administra-
tion Summer Enrichment Program,
and spent last summer as an intern
for a high level administrator in the
Detroit Receiving Hospital. One of
her many responsibilities was acting
as a liaison between doctors and pa-
tient's families in the emergency
School of Public Health faculty
member Richard Lichtenstein started
the program four years ago to recruit
minority students into a field they
may never have considered - Health
There are many jobs in health
services that do not involve clinical
work, said Lichtenstein, and admin-
istrators have a huge impact on
health care. Minorities are seriously
underrepresented, holding only about
12% of top level administrative po-
sitions in the Detroit area, he said.
"Some people would argue that
members of minority groups are able
to run institutions in predominantly
minority areas with greater sensitiv-
ity to those minorities," Lichten-
Through the program, undergrad-
uates are placed in hospitals and
health care faculties in Ann Arbor
and Detroit to work closely with
administrators. Interns receive a
salary and learn the job demands of
administrators firsthand: they go to
meetings, and generally do every-
thing the administrator does. "They

Last fall, two men were stabbed
near the steps of the Union. Last
month, several students' rooms in
Alice Lloyd residence hall were bur-
glarized. And thus far this school
year, many women were reported
raped on campus.
Incidents such as these have
prompted the Michigan Student As-
sembly to set up two safety sympo-
siums to discuss problems and pos-
sible solutions, the first of which is

committee has invited about 115
student groups to attend the sympo-
siums, but are encouraging all stu-
dents to attend. Students will be
broken down into small groups to
"brainstorm," said Gretchen Walker,
vice chair of the committee.
A key reason for the symposium,
Walker said, is to unify the ap-
proaches various groups have taken
to try and improve safety conditions
on campus. Now, for instance, "a
sorority will say we need more
lighting, and a women's group will
say we need better transportation."
To meet all safety needs, groups
have to work together and present a
unified front, Walker said.
Bell added, "It's time for students
to band together to do something
Walker said MSA also plans Ao
ask students questions such as:
"What places on campus are unsafe?
Do you see safety officers around?
Are services such as Safe Walk, Nite
Owl, emergency phones effective?"
"We're not going in with any pte
conceived ideas; we want to hear
what students have to say," Walker
said. "We have some broad questions
- we want input on them."
MSA invited groups like Interco-
operative Council, the Panhellenic
Association, individual fraternities
and sororities, dorm councils,
minority and ethnic organizations,
and politically and socially active
organizations, Walker said.
Tonight's meeting, which will
deal with campus safety problems,
will be in the Michigan Union
Kuenzel Room, and Monday's ses-
sion dealing with possible solutions
(also at 8 p.m.) will be held in the
Union's Anderson Room.

Third year Inteflex student Denise
White, who interned at Mount
Carmel Hospital in Detroit last
summer, worked on getting head in-
jury patients into rehabilitation cen-
ters. She said her internship "opened
her eyes to issues in public health."
In Waters' internship, she de-
signed a directory system simple
enough to enable children to find
their way around Detroit Receiving
hospital. This was a difficult task,
she said, given the complexity of the
Waters praised the summer pro-
gram. "It wasn't like they put us in
a hospital and left us there," she
said, adding that there was a lot of

The program's popularity is evi-
dent; competition for admission is
high. Last year, 14 interns were se-
lected from a pool of 83 applicants.
Past participants have been

but the program accepts applications
"We want student perspectives on
the real problems - what they are,
where they are, and what can be done
to solve them," Communications
Chair Robert Bell said.
Following the second meeting,
which will take place on Monday
night, Bell and Walker will draft a
proposal from the compiled
information and send it to the Uni-
versity's Board of Regents, other
administrators, and public safety of-

MOSCOW (AP) - President Mikhail Gor-
bachev emerged from nearly a month out of the
public eye yesterday to tell the nation the Soviet
leadership still has sharp differences over his re-
forms but remains committed to them.
In a 17-minute speech to industrial, construc-
tion and transport workers that led the evening
television news, Gorbachev said his perestroika
program had solved many problems in political,
economic and social life. But he said perestroika
itself had created many problems.
"Now we see how difficult the new problems
are," he told workers at the Communist Party
Central Committee offices. "Not everything is
simple, not without abnormalities. Life is tense,
both economic and social life and in work
collectives and the party."
Gorbachev, who is party general secretary as
well as president, has said before that the Krem-
lin leadership doesn't always see eye-to-eye.
Yesterday, however, he gave a more detailed ex-
planation of the discord over perestroika.
"In the beginning, as a matter of fact, it even
flabbergasted us. I will say that we also didn't
know everything, that is those who are sitting
here next to you," said Gorbachev, flanked by
nine of the 13 members of the ruling Politburo.
"Even we can't know everything and are still
figuring out what's what. But all the same, from.
this exchange (of opinions), sometimes the
sharpest of exchanges - which as a matter of
fact are continuing - we crystalized the conclu-
sions which make up the foundations of pere-

Gorbachev last appeared in public Jan. 21,
when he spoke to a Moscow party conference.
Yesterday, he spoke without notes and waved his
fist for emphasis. Soviet TV listed dozens of
other speakers at the meeting, but did not
broadcast their remarks or Gorbachev's responses.
He touched the familiar themes of the impor-
tance of the individual in making his overhaul of
society work, and he criticized those who suggest
reforms that go against the grain of socialism.
