Homeless head to D.C. rally
Ann Arborites join 250,000 protesters in Washington

by Tara Gruzen
Daily City Reporter
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Susan
Hoffman is an Ann Arbor homeless
woman with multiple sclerosis. She
is 25 and confined to a wheelchair.
Hoffman now lives in the
Women in Transition House on N.
Ashley. She moved there three
weeks ago after looking for housing
for two years. She said when she
went to the Ann Arbor Housing
Commission, its members said they
had to house the elderly before they
could house her.
Chris Egleston is 45 and has
lived a large part of his life on the
streets. He has a college degree.
Egleston said he has spent many
nights walking across the Diag in
the middle of winter looking for
somewhere to sleep. After a while,
he figured out which buildings in
Ann Arbor he could sneak into for
the night.
Although he now lives in

Sycamore Meadows, a low-income
Housing and Urban Development
project in Superior Township,
Egleston has spent a lot of time liv-
ing in homeless shelters.
"Shelters are an undignified, bar-
baric approach to human beings,
Egleston said. "In the affluent soci-
ety in which we live everyone has an
economic right to a home of their
own."
Hoffman and Egleston were two
of the 250,000 homeless people,
families, and friends who shouted,
"We want housing now!" at the
National Housing Now Rally
Saturday in Washington D.C.
Two busloads of people from
Ann Arbor drove to the rally to join
in the struggle for more affordable
housing. Among those who went
from Ann Arbor, two-thirds were
homeless.

Ypsilanti for homeless families, sent

protestors arrested*

in East G

BERLIN (AP) - East German
police arrested hundreds of people
during pro-democracy protests in
East Berlin early yesterday, and also
broke up huge weekend demonstra-
tions in five other major cities.
In East Berlin, citizens cheered
protestors from apartment balconies.
Numerous injuries were reported
Saturday as police swinging trun-
cheons repeatedly charged demonstra-
tors.
Police in East Berlin swept
through courtyards and beat on
apartment doors looking for demon-
strators. They moved in ranks and
zig-zag patterns to divide and trap the
marchers.
The protests, coinciding with the
visit of Soviet President Mikhail
Gorbachev on East Germany's 40th
anniversary, were the largest since a
workers' uprising was put down by
the Soviets in 1953.

ermTany
Gorbachev's reform policies have
make him popular among ordinary
East Germans and many chanted his
name and called for his support.
Despite the growing unrest and
the exodus of East Germans to the
West, East German leader Erich
Honecker said during lengthy talks
with Gorbachev that he would stick
to his hard-line course.
Honecker said the hopes of pro-
ponents of reform were "built on
sand."
In all, more than 15,000 people
protested in the capital, Leipzig,
Dresden, Potsdam, Jena and Plauen,
according to West German television
and witness accounts.
The Hessischer Rundfunk radio
station in Frankfurt, West Germany,
said yesterday that 700 people were
arrested in East Berlin alone,
although witnesses said that the

and Airport Dr., there were few signs of the
crash.
The crash, which occurred Saturday at 12:07
p.m., took the lives of pilot Daron Regunberg, a
physician; his brother, Attorney J. Regunberg;
and Attorney Theodore Schuld.
The three men are suspected to have been
heading to the 1 p.m. Michigan-Wisconsin foot-
ball game, because football tickets and a
Michigan cap were found amid the wreckage, said

Trager said Dr. Regunberg had flown slightly
more than 70 hours before Saturday, almost all
of it on two-seater "high-wing aircraft," a differ-
ent type of plane than the four-seat Piper
Cherokee 180 Regunberg was flying on
Saturday.
"I think that he got in a plane that was a little
too much for him - a little bit over his head,"
Trager said. The plane had "more things that
whizz and burr and click," he said.
The Piper is registered in Illinois, but was not

galton, . e cause of the crash was a stalled
spin." As the plane made a tight right hand turn
to line up with the runway, it appears the left
wing began to go faster than the right, the air
"burbling" under that wing instead of creating the
necessary lift. The aircraft stalled, and the right
wing tip and fuselage hit the ground, he said.
Dr. Regunberg could have pulled the plane
out of the stall easily, Trager said. "It is a ma-
neuver we practice (in flight instruction), but
when you panic it only serves to.exacerbate the
situation."

Sister City representatives to officiate

in 1990 N
by Hunter Van Valkenburgh
Representatives of 17 national ci-
ties with sister cities in Nicaragua
met at Ann Arbor's First Baptist
Church Saturday to organize and
prepare for the upcoming national
elections there.
The representatives, during a day-
long meeting sponsored by the Ann
Arbor Sister City Task Force, de-
cided to apply to two U.S. govern-
mental bodies for project funding.
The attenders also decided to draft

icaraguan
guidelines for observing Nicaraguan
sister cities based on rules supplied
by the Jimmy Carter Center in
Atlanta. Like the Carter Center, the
sister-city groups will be in
Nicaragua as official observers.
Ann Arbor - one of the cities
represented - has had a sister city
relationship with Juigalpa,
Nicaragua since April 1986, when
citizens voted almost two-to-one to
establish it.
Since then, local delegations to

national election

Juigalpa have established personal
and cultural ties and the task force
has promoted health projects such as
sending a new garbage truck and
making improvements to the local
health clinic.
The Ann Arbor task force is one
of more than 90 such groups in the
U.S.
During Saturday's meeting,
Gainesville, Fla.-Matagalpa group
member Paul Doughty said the U.S.
press is biased against the

Nicaraguan government and tends to
rely on the U.S. government's ver-
sion of events.
He criticized the press for not re-
porting on the Nicaraguan elections,
tending to quote U.S. officials who
were not present, and ignoring the
reports of observers from the
European Community and the
Organization of American States.

Nicaraguan elections in 1984 -

'M' 24-0
victory -
fail0s to
thr11 Bo
by Adam Benson
Daily Football Writer
24-0 victories would be fine for
other schools, and most of the time, >
Michigan would accept such a size-
able difference.
But Saturday's seemingly lop-
sided win over usually weak Wis-
consin did not reflect the trouble the
Wolverines had with the Badgers..
The offense struggled to move the
ball against a team they had scored
111 points against in the last two
seasons.
The ground game was in-,
consistent, excluding Tony Bolest
46-yard run into the end zone..
Quarterback Elvis Grbac had his
worst outing of the season. ,. NIL

Chemical engineers
earn more than
others, survey says

by Ken Walker
Chemical engineering graduates
earned the highest starting salaries
- $32,949 per year - of last year's
graduates from all four-year universi-
ties, according to a recent survey per-
formed by the College Placement
Council, Inc.
Engineering graduates finished
ahead of petroleum, mechanical, and
civil engineers, who received average
salaries of $32,789, $30,490, and
$27,046 respectively.
Graduates with degrees in ac-
counting ($25,223), human re-
sources ($22,842), business adminis-
tration ($22,450), and hotel and
restaurant management ($19,657),
came next.
Dawn Oberman, a statistical ser-
vien -,ntciaigt fnr the cnnncil_ -aid

placement office did not provide
salary information for this year's
survey.
The survey is funded by the
members, who receive the results in
return. Oberman said employers uti-
lize the survey information to set
competitive starting salaries.
Deborah May, the University of
Michigan's director of career plan-
ning and placement, said the place-
ment office here uses the survey to
advise students about what kind of
starting salary they could expect in
different careers. However, she cau-
tioned against reaching false conclu-
sions from the survey's results.
For instance, May pointed out
