LSA
seeks
input
for dean
BY LIZ ROBBOY
The search committee for the next
dean of the College of Literature,
Science and Arts is "apparently for
the first time" soliciting students'
nominations through newspaper ad-
vertisements, said William Kelly,
chair of the search committee.
According to the advertisements,
which were placed in Friday's and
Monday's editions of the Daily,
"suggestions are greatly appreciated,
and vital to this process."
"LSA students can assist us in
identifying faculty members who
may be qualified for this key admin-
istrative position, and that, in any
event, they should have the oppor-
tunity to place names 'in the hat,"'
said Kelly.
Comprised of nine faculty mem-
bers and two students, the search
committee is also soliciting nom-
inations from faculty members, the
LSA student government, and exter-
nal sources. They have also placed
advertisements in national academic
journals such as the "Chronicle of
Higher Education" and the "Black
Scholar."
Kelly said the search committee
will give "equal consideration to all
nominees."
But some students say this
sounds too good to be true.
"It sounds good, but I wonder
how seriously they are taking this
(student involvement)," said Corni-
lius Harris, chair of the Minorities
Affairs Commission, who ques-
tioned the validity of the committee.
"I believe that they will take
them (student nominations) into
consideration, but not as much as
faculty nominations," said Jennifer
Clough, vice president of LSA stu-
dent government.
Other search committee members
refused to comment on any aspect of
the search.
Kelly called this policy of silence
"standard practice in such searches...
intended solely to avoid inadvertive
conflicting reports on the com-
mittee's activities and progress."
The next dean will replace current
LSA Dean Peter Steiner, who after
seven years of service will retire in
the summer of 1989.
The committee plans to complete
its search this semester, said Kelly.
It remains uncertain when the new
dean will actually take office
because, "that will depend on the
present commitments and other cir-
cumstances of the candidate yet
selected."

student involve-ment

DETROIT (AP) - Two Michi-
gan stocks that gained the most in
value in 1988, spurred by takeover
prospects or rumors, may disappear
from the market by the end of 1989.
Borman's Inc. stock racked up a
201 percent gain for the year, for ex-
ample, thanks to a $27-a-share buy-
out of the operator of Farmer Jack
markets by the Great Atlantic & Pac-
ific Tea Co.
R.P. Scherer Corp. is just look-
ing for a buyer, but that search and a
board room battle that led to it drew
interest that excited a 130 percent
gain in the gelatin capsule maker's
stock prices over the year.
Borman's and Scherer, both for
sale, were the top two gainers in an
index of 50 Michigan stocks prepared
by Roney & Co. for The Detroit
News and published Monday.
The major loser among the 50
stocks, Fruehauf Corp., also was em-
broiled in takeover talk in 1988.
The truck-trailer maker's stock
dropped 17 percent, with the major
slump coming late in the year when
negotiations to sell the company, or
its profitable Kelsey-Hayes automo-
tive division, fell through.
"If there was a theme for the
market in 1988, it was that investors
have become very concerned about
highly leveraged companies," said
James Leonard, research director at
First of Michigan.

Even big blue chip companies
whose stocks are perennial top per-
formers were also among the loserg.
Upjohn Co. spokesperson Robert
LaRue blamed an inordinately qjm
view by Wall Street analysts of its
Rogaine anti-baldness treatment for a
4 percent drop in Upjohn stock for
the year.
"They don't sell it. We do. We're
following the marketing plan that-is
in place and we're not in a sweat
about it," LaRue said.
A three percent drop in Dow
Chemical Co.'s stock price last year
is traceable to worries that the cycli-
cal chemical business would suffer if
the economy turned down this year,
analysts said.
"How can you have a pretty teri-
fic year and have your stock o
down? Easy," said Terence Adderly,
president and chief executive of Kelly,
Services, the Troy temporary services
company.
Takeover fever boosted Kelly and
other temporary services companies
to artificially high levels in lte
1987, and then fears that a 1989 't-
cession could hurt the business led: to
1988's overall 5 percent drop in K -
ly stock, Adderly said.
But 1988 was a welcome year for
most Michigan stocks. The 50 on
the list posted a 22.5 percent overall
increase, compared with a 6.6 percent
decline in 1987.

The Bursley Community Volunteers - a project
designed to increase student participation in commu-
nity projects - is striving to increase its impact in
the surrounding community.
The three-year-old project received a considerable
amount of support Sunday when close to 150 students
showed up for the mass meeting held in Bursley's
West Cafeteria.
Feedback from the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti community
has been instrumental to the BCV's expansion from
13 to 18 projects.
Three years ago the Big-Sib/Little-Sib program was
developed to provide kids from Hikone, a public hous-
ing project in Ann Arbor, with "companionship and a
variety of experiences outside their communities."
While students and children alike seem to reap the
most benefits as participants in the Big-Sib/Little-Sib
project - which also has been expanded to include
children from the Parkridge Community Center - re-
cent gains have been made in gathering support for
other programs as well.
Among the newest of these projects, Inmates Out-
reach may be among the most innovative. Directed by
Michelle Ridnour, the project is designed to tutor men
and women from the Washtenaw County Jail and the
Huron Valley Women's Prison who are pursuing the
high school equivalency diploma.
Maria Buffington, the coordinator of Big-Sib/Little-
Sib, has been volunteering her services for the past
four years, first as resident assistant and then as resi-
dent director for Bursley. Back in 1984, resident direc-
tors and resident assistants at Bursley decided to form
committees for volunteer community projects.

"It gives them a chance to gain experience outside
academic settings and to help them become more sen-
sitivized to social, political and economic issues - to
do something about injustices in the world by becom-
ing participants in community volunteer work."
According to Brandy Graham, volunteer coordinator
of the Bursley Community Volunteers, the primary
purpose behind each of the 18 projects is not limited
to the benefits that the recipients receive.
"Theyacan gain experience that they wouldn't oth-
erwise have, gain insight into our world which ex-
pands their realm of knowledge and experience, and
improve various skills that they wouldn't have the
opportunity to develop except through contact with
our volunteers," Graham said at Sunday's mass meet-
ing.
In addition, Graham noted that "much of the volun-
teer work tends to put things in better perspective,
when you are stressed out because you just got a 'C'
on an exam and then you find yourself tutoring an in-
mate who never learned to read, you can't help but re-
alize that with that 'C' you've got it pretty good -
you can read and you don't have to spend the next
however many years in a prison cell."
The Bursley Community Volunteers is part of a
larger effort to increase student awareness of the social
conditions of surrounding communities.
Two nationwide networks in particular - Campus
Compact and Campus Outreach Opportunity League
(COOL) - have already been organized for this pur-
pose and are currently conducting surveys to determine
if community service is on the rise in college
communities.

Michigan r
face murd
HONOLULU (AP) - A man ac-
cused of killing his wife nine years
ago in Michigan was ordered in fed-
eral court yesterday to be turned over
to the custody of Honolulu police
pending an extradition hearing in
state court.
David Davis, 44, is being held
without bail since his arrest by FBI
agents Friday in American Samoa,
where he has been living under the
name of David Bell for more than
three years and was chief pilot for
Samoa Air, a small interisland air-
line.
A woman recognized Davis after a
network television program featured
the death of Shannon Davis, 25, at
the couple's farm in Waldron, Mich.
on July 23, 1980.
Her death initially was attributed
to a fall from a horse, but authorities
a year later detected an animal muscle
relaxant in the nurse's body and is-
sued an arrest warrant for her hus-
band.
FBI agent Robert Heafner, who
escorted the handcuffed Davis on
Monday's flight to Honolulu, said

nan may
er charges
Davis "was pretty well liked in
Samoa."
Yvonne Chotzen, a public de-
fender who represented Davis at the
hearing, urged that Honolulu police
seek an early hearing in state Circuit
Court on Davis' extradition.
"I believe he wants to return to
Michigan as soon as possible to face
charges of which he says he is not
guilty," she said following the hear-
ing.
In court for the hearing was a fel-
low pilot who said he's known Davis
for five months.
"He's a nice guy and a great pi-
lot," said Gregory Darrow, who also
works for Samoa Air.
"I don't know anything about be-
fore, but I know he's an excellent
pilot and always helpful -to the young
pilots," Darrow said.
At the request of Assistant U.S.
Attorney Michael Burke, a charge of
federal flight to avoid prosecution for
murder against Davis was dismissed
for federal magistrate Bert Tokairin,
ending the federal jurisdiction in the
matter.
