"Some people spend good money
on a bike - $500, $600, and even
more - but they don't spend the
$15 to $20 on a good lock," said
He added that all types of bikes
are stolen in all price ranges often
due to improper securing or no se-
curing at all.
"For the person riding a bike on
campus, if you see a bike rack, don't
just look at it," Baisden said. "Use it
and lock your bike."
The University has made an effort
in aiding bike security by installing
a more modern version of the bike
rack which is in the form of an arch
cemented into the ground.
"The U-bar rack is more suitable
for any type of bike in terms of se-
curing," Baisden said.
Campus bikers know, however,
that more new racks are needed, par-
ticularly at highly frequented campus
buildings like the Undergraduate and
Graduate Libraries and the Modern
Languages Building. Students often
have to improvise, locking their
bikes to everything from parking
meters to trees.
University security issues some
warning tickets for unregistered
bikes or bikes parked in places im-
peding building entrances and exits,
walkways, and places marked off
limits to bike parking. In extreme
cases the bike can also be im-

Rapp said the University tries to
place bike racks near the more popu-
lar University buildings.
Rapp said there are no immediate
plans for more rack installations, but
plans are in the works for after the
winter. The new racks cost $50 a
piece and another $50 for each in-

Kelly stressed the importance of
undergraduates being active in re-

do now is to come up with ways to
get the undergraduates more involved
in research," he said. "It's one thing
to absorb knowledge, but it's more
ex(iling to create it."
"I don't think what we're striving

NASA delays shuttle flight
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - NASA Tuesday night postponed the
launch of space shuttle Atlantis for several days because of a faulty master
control system in one of the spaceship's three main engines.
The flight had been scheduled for Thursday. Officials said the launch
could be rescheduled for as early as Monday, but they would not have a
definite date for a day or two.
The delay was announced shortly after a federal judge in Washington
rejected a request by three anti-nuclear groups that the launch be scrubbed
because Atlantis was to carry a plutonium-powered planetary spacecraft
bound for Jupiter.
Launch director Bob Sieck said the decision to delay the launch came
after engineers had tested the suspect master controller for several hours
and could not learn why it had given a false signal during a check Monday
State senate hears debate on
parental consent for abortion
LANSING - Two women gave testimony yesterday to a Senate panel
considering a bill which would require parental consent for minors'
Kate Rynearson of Clarksville said she had an abortion with her
mother's knowledge at age 15 and said her experience convinced her
teenagers are too young to understand what abortion involves.
But another woman, who said she was sexually abused by her father,
brothers and the family minister from the age of 2, asked lawmakers to re-
ject the bill in order to protect incest victims.
The two women's testimony came as the Senate Human Resources
Committee opened hearings on the bill requiring girls under 18 to obtain
the consent of their parents for an abortion or to seek a court order autho-
rizing the procedure.
Committee Chairman Sen. Fred Dillingham, R-Fowlerville, said he
expects the panel to approve the bill on Tuesday and send it to the full
East German officials meet
with pro-democracy activists
BERLIN - Communist officials met opposition leaders in Dresden
and talks were expected soon in Leipzig in the first sign of a shift in the
East German government's hard-line stance, news reports said yesterday.
Prominent Lutheran official Hans Otto Furian said in East Berlin that
the Communist Party "must give up its grip on total power."
Also in East Berlin, pro-democracy activists said at least 500 protesters
arrested in Dresden were freed over the past two days. The activists, who
spoke on condition of anonymity, said those freed were among 1,000
people arrested in Dresden during demonstrations last week and over the
There were increasing signs of willingness by some Communist Party
officials to talk with pro-democracy activists. But East German leader
Erich Honecker reiterated his hard-line stance.
Schools submit asbestos plans
LANSING - Most Michigan schools have completed plans for
managing asbestos in their buildings but only a fourth of the plans are ad-
equate, a state official says.
Bill DeLiefde, asbestos coordinator for the Michigan Department of
Public Health, said only 3:3 percent of Michigan's 5,472 school build-
ings have failed to submit plans.
"Right now, we have approved about 25 percent of the plans that have
been submitted," he said.
The remaining 75 percent have been rejected for failure to follow fed-
eral regulations regarding removal of the substance, he said.
Federal law originally required schools to submit plans for managing
asbestos by Oct. 12, 1988, but Congress later granted schools an exten-
sion until May 9. Federal legislation required schools to begin imple-
menting the plans by July 1.
Hey Spartans: Lighten up!
It has come to our attention that certain members of the community
have expressed outrage at a recent Daily photo caption which questioned
the literacy of Michigan State students. The caption read, in part, "When
did MSU students learn how to read?"
Since then, we have been inundated with phone calls and letters from
angry readers who claim that the Daily is no longer a "real" newspaper.
One caller even termed the entire Daily staff elitist.
Elitist? We were trying to be funny.
And now we can no longer doubt the tremendous reading ability of our
good friends in East Lansing, who were kind enough to take time out
from their agriculture classes to respond to our caption. It's nice to know
life is so idyllic and carefree over there in Cow Country that they have
time to contemplate such worldly matters.
But one question is still haunting us:
Do MSU students have a sense of humor?
