Amnesty
vigil lights
up Human
Rights Day
by Josephine Ballenger

Last night, while most students
were in the libraries or computing
centers, about 25 people shivered on
the Diag and held candles in a vigil
for Amnesty International's Human
Rights Day.
Dec. 10 is the anniversary of the
Universal Declaration of Human
Rights, adopted by the United Na-
tions in 1948. The document is "the
most commonly accepted record of
human rights," said Lindsey West,
Amnesty member and coordinator of
the event. It includes 30 articles
establishing civil, political, eco-
nomic and social rights of all peo-
ple.
Although Amnesty helps out
"prisoners of conscience" worldwide,
the Ann Arbor group chose to focus
on Peru and China for the event.
West said they chose the two coun-
tries because of Amnesty's campaign
in Peru this past year and China's
political unrest.
In Peru, at least 3,000 are be-
lieved to have been killed by the
government, and tens of thousands
have fled their homes, said West.
Amnesty member Anne Frantilla
read a poem by Javier Heraud, killed
by the Peruvian Armed Forces in
1963, after which participants passed

who were murdered, detained, or had
disappeared.
Pingsha Dong, Amnesty mem-
ber, told the group that the Chinese
government murdered 1,000 in Bei-
jing in June, 300 in Chengdu City,
and arrested 4,000 nationwide.
At the participants' feet were
banners of three articles of the
United Nations' declaration written

in Chinese and English.,
Dong passed around some names
of Chinese prisoners and their al-,
leged offenses such as "heading a,
team that was blocking vehicles.",
"We try to monitor people being
detained for unrecognizable offenses
and not let the government detain
them," said West. "Amnesty be-
lieves the government retains its re-
sponsibility to uphold the law and...,
should not (give in to) a common

denominator of brutality."
About 200 candles, with prison-
ers' names on them, were given out
during the day to people all over
campus. Those who received them
were encouraged to join the vigil or
light them at home.
"The burning candle has become
the symbol of hope for Amnesty In-
ternational. It's better to light one
candle than to curse the dark," West

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP)
- Salaries are up, but next spring's
:college graduates face a tighter job
;market, according to a national sur-
Ivey released yesterday.'
Expected hires will be down 13.3
percent compared with last year's
hiring, according to the 19th annual
,survey of recruiting trends by the
Career Development and Placement
,Services at Michigan State Univer-
sity.
While some employers will expe-
rience large increases in hiring, over-
all the employers, who last year
hired 96,420 graduates, indicate they
expect to hire 83,623 of the 1989-90
graduates.
The average starting salary for a
graduate with a bachelor's degree
will be $25,256, up 3.3 percent over

a year ago. Expected starting salary
offers for master's of business ad-
ministration graduates are $39,840, a
3.1 percent increase; $33,740 for
master's degree graduates, up 3.3
percent, and $37,111 for doctoral de-
gree graduates, a 2.4 percent in-
crease.
As in past years, engineering
graduates will get the highest start-
ing salaries for new college gradu-

while electrical engineering is at
$32,107; computer science at
$31,389, and industrial engineering
at $30,557.
On the other end of the scale, the
lowest salaries were for graduates in
human ecology-home economics,
$18,157; journalism, $18,255; natu-
ral resources, $18,840; retailing,
$18,909; and advertising, $19,662.
The survey was based on re-

Patrick Scheetz, who directed the
study, says several factors will help
shape the job market over the next
five years, among them computer
literacy, internships and work expe-
riences, a willingness to move, and
foreign language proficiencies to
meet the needs of increasing foreign
employment.
The survey also found:
Employers say the greatest job
opportunities are in the Southwest.
Next best is the Northwest, followed
by the Southeast, North Central,
South Central, and Northwest states.
Of new college graduates hired
last year, 9.6 percent were minori-
ties.
About 9.9 percent of the cur-
rent salaried employees are in over-
seas locations.

Dalai Lama accepts Nobel Peace Prize

OSLO, Norway (AP) - The
:Dalai Lama accepted the Nobel Peace
Prize yesterday and said that despite
WChinese rebuffs, he remained com-
mitted to non-violence in seeking an
,end to China's 40-year occupation of
'his Himalayan homeland, Tibet.
"I accept the prize with profound

gratitude on behalf of the oppressed
everywhere and for all those who
struggle for freedom and work for
world peace," he said at a ceremony
attended by King Olav V and gov-
ernment officials.
At a white-tie ceremony in
Stockholm, Sweden, King Carl XVI

Gustaf awarded gold Nobel medal-
lions to nine laureates who won the
prizes for literature, chemistry,
physics, medicine and economic
sciences. Six were Americans.
The Dalai Lama said China's re-
jection of his 1987 peace plan was
forcing him to rethink his approach,

and he might withdraw his proposal.
' He has called for Tibetan auton-
omy over domestic matters, with
China retaining control over military
and diplomatic affairs. Beijing has
rejected the formula.

Nicaragua
asks U.N. to
help with
Contras
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) -
Nicaragua proposed yesterday that
U.N. observers in Central America
be given new powers and personnel
to start disbanding U.S.-backed Con-
tra rebels, a Nicaraguan source said.
The Salvador government also re-
jected a truce proposed by rebels
fighting in that country.
In return for demobilizaiton of
the Contras, the Nicaraguan gov-
ernment would consider resuming its
cease-fire and "technical talks" with
the leadership of the Honduras-based
rebels, said a Nicaraguan source after
the opening of a two-day summit of
Central American presidents.
The source close to the
Nicaraguan delegation, who refused
to be identitfied, also said Nicaragua
was willing to allow the U.N. group
to verify that no weapons are sent
from Nicaragua to El Salvador's
rebels.
The U.N. observers were ap-
proved four months ago to monitor
the voluntary repatriation of the
Contras and make sure that one

Tau Beta Pi, the National Engineering Honor Society, was founded to mark in a fitting manner
those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship and
exemplary character as students in engineering, or by their attainments as alumni in the field of
engineering, and to foster a spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.
