Students living in university
housing can now eat pizza and pro-
toct the environment at the same
time.
E With the introduction of recy-
cling centers in residence halls, stu-
dents can recycle newsprint and cor-
rugated cardboard, including pizza
boxes, in their own hall.
The centers, introduced this
September, provide bins for
newsprint, cardboard, and non-recy-
clable waste. Students must separate
the waste themselves, placing it in
the appropriate receptacle.
The recycling program was im-
plemented by the Housing Division
and Plant Department Solid Waste
Management Task Force, a group
fdrmed in January, 1988 by the
combined efforts of eight university
a d community groups, including
the Housing Administration,
Recycle UM, the Residence Hall
Association, the School of Natural
~sources, and Recycle Ann Arbor.
Student-coordinated recycling
programs have existed in several res-
idence halls for the past two years,
bit the lack of continuity as the
vlAunteers moved out of the halls
created a need for a more institution-
afized program.
Students approached Housing of-
fibials late in 1987 with a plan to
cteate a university-run recycling pro-
gram. The housing department re-
sponded enthusiastically, facing a
landfill space shortage and anxious

The Black woman who accused
her assigned roommate of racial dis-
crimination said last weekend that
she is satisfied with the University
Housing Department's investigation
of the matter.
However, she said she has not
been told exactly what actions were
taken against the white female and
she is concerned whether the actions
are appropriate.
Last month, the white Mary
Markley dormitory resident told a
Residential Director that she wanted
to move out after discovering that
her roommate was Black. The Black
student later charged that she had
been the victim of discrimination.
"I asked them twice. He said no,"
the Black female said, noting that
Associate Housing Director Archie
Andrews would not tell her any de-
tails about the ruling.
Andrews said under the Family
Educational Rights Act of 1974, the
contents of a students record cannot
be released without the student's
permission. He did, however, tell the
Black female that the white female is
undergoing "some kind of proce-
dure."
In incidents such as this one an
exception should be made, the Black
female said: "I do think that maybe
she should have gotten more."
Andrewsasaid last week that he
thinks housing has conducted a fair
and thorough investigation. As far as
housing is concerned, he said, "the
matter has concluded."
Housing officials had attorneys to
look at the case, the Black female
said. They determined that if she

were to take legal action, she would
have lost, based on recent court rul-
ings regarding freedom of speech and
the First Amendment.

criminatory harassment, which did
not allow discriminatory comments,

Child 'giant' treated in U.S.

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) -
At 7 years, Igor is already about 6
feet tall and weighs 200 pounds.
He's come thousands of miles from
his native Soviet Union to the Mayo
Clinic in hopes doctors can remove a
dangerous tumor from his skull and
stop his abnormal growth.
Igor and his mother, Svilana
Ladan, arrived three weeks ago after
she waged a worldwide letter-writing
campaign from her home in Kiev to
find treatment for her son. The costs

of the boys care are being donated.
"People think 6 feet, not 6
years,"" said Nina Sahulenko, a rela-
tive from Phoenix who is translating
for the Ladans. "But he's still a
child. He likes to play. When there
are children around, he will find
those his own age."
Sahulenko also said that the
glasnost-era easing of travel and
other restrictions on Soviet citizens
has helped, "otherwise he'd never be
here."

to reduce the amount of waste gener-
ated by the university.
The Waste Management Task
Force hired an independent consul-
tant, Resource Recycling Systems,
Inc., and in a joint effort developed a
long-range waste reduction plan for
the entire university community.
The estimated annual cost of the
program is $150,000.
Phase I of the plan began this
September in nine of the university
residence halls, incorporating recy-
clables with a large volume and low
processing level. Thirty to thirty-
five percent of the university waste

stream consists of newsprint and cor-
rugated cardboard, items that can be
processed easily.
Phase II recommendations in-
cluded the incorporation of other re-
cyclables in the waste stream, pri-
marily focusing on metal and glass.
George SanFacon, Housing
Facilities Director and Co-Chair of
the task force estimates that since
the start of the program over 21 tons
of recyclables, 5% of the waste
stream, have been processed. The
task force projects that 20% of the
solid waste will be diverted through
the new program, with a resident
participation level of 50 to 70%.

Alumnae Council
1elps 40 females

,by Joanna Broder

Stress is a fact of life for college
stidents.
Dividing schedules between class-
work, extracurricular activities, and
social events, some students' sche-
diles are so booked that they must
literally make time to sleep. Add to
that the burden of worrying about
financing one's education, and a
st'udent can become overwhelmed.
*C: The local Alumnae Council of
WCJubs is hoping to provide some re-
lipf from this financial burden for
about 40 qualified female students
tlis fall.
a The council, a division of the
Alumni Association, will consider
ai~varding a scholarship to any female
graduate or undergraduate who has
maintained a B average, has served
the community in some way, and
o ~s demonstrated a financial need.
"We're looking for someone
who cares about the future of the 'U'
and not just their own," Edith
Bletcher, the director of Student-
Alumni Services, said.
Having awarded about $60,000 in
scholarships last fall, the council
plans to do the same this year.
Grants range between $500 and
$2,500 dollars for each student.
1 In addition, other University
Alumnae clubs from through out
Midwest are likely to donate addi-
tional grants. Bletcher said, "We
have high hopes that about 20 more
students will be awarded out of other
club funds (from neighboring
states)."
The alumnae club scholarships
differ from those offered by the

Office of Financial Aid. Many grants
available at the Office of Financial
Aid, including the Michigan Annual
Givings and the Regents' Alumni
Scholarships, require that students
rank in the top one percent of their
high school classes. The Alumnae
Selections Committee, however,
weighs academic ability, financial
need, and community service when
choosing candidates.
Harvey Grotrian, director of fi-
nancial aid, said, "(Our) scholarships
are based upon merit. The competi-
tion is really very very keen. If we
were to more broadly recognize aca-
demic performance we could spend
millions."
The Alumnae Council awarded its
first scholarship in 1935. Jean
Cobb, director of Alumnae
Activities, said the council wanted to
promote women's education in an
era when "there was little scholar-
ship support for women."
"The original idea was for women
to help other women," Bletcher said.
Applications are available for the
scholarship at the Alumni Center on
200 Fletcher Street. The deadline for
applying is Nov. 27.
Last year, about 62 percent of the
students who applied for the scholar-
ships received some funds.
The council is legally allowed to
limit its scholarships to women be-
cause they are considered a private
organization. They do, however, of-
fer three to four Lorraine Gay
Scholarships to men who graduated
from Saginaw County high schools
each year.
