:Engineers, business

: Nine remain
missing In

*by Amy Quick
Do thoughts of spending yet an-
other two years in class trying for a
Masters in Business Administration
_(MBA) after graduation make you
want to win the lottery and buy an
,island in the Caribbean?
Before you throw away that
power-briefcase Mom and Dad sent
for your birthday, consider another
alternative. The Ford Foundation an-
nounced that it will give a $2.5 mil-
lion grant to the University to estab-
lish a William Clay Ford Professor-
ship of Product Manufacturing.
This allows students to
,stay in engineering but
. understand business
*-enough to make sure the
-product design is done
with awareness of the
buying and selling reali-
ties in the business
:world, Atkins explained.
The program, granted in the hope
-of encouraging both the Business
iSchool and the School of Engineer-
ing to put together a curriculum to
get experience in industry, is sched-
uled to take effect next year. Stu-
dents in this executive-engineering
program would combine the skills of
an engineer with those of an MBA

Last Thursday, an explanation on
the Opinion Page by Daily Editor in
Chief Adam Schrager said the opin-
ion expressed in the article was not
that of the Daily.
Seven Daily Opinion Page
staffers addressed the assembly, urg-
ing representatives not to support
the measure.
Daily Opinion Page Editor Eliza-
beth Esch said she thought the open
letter was an "unproductive" way to
'react to the article.
"The only way to air all our dis-
agreements is to keep talking about
it and not try to put forth an adver-
tisement slamming other student or-
ganizations," Esch said.
In a heated debate, which lasted
for an hour-and-a-half, assembly rep-
resentatives engaged in face-to-face
debate with Daily staffers over the
paper's policies and the implications
of the article.
Some Daily members and assem-

without requiring students to obtain
their engineering degree before at-
tending a full MBA program, said
Dean of Engineering Daniel Atkins.
This allows students to stay in-
engineering but understand business
enough to make sure the product de-
sign is done with awareness of the
buying and selling realities in the
business world, Atkins explained.
Faculty and students involved in
the program will spend time in in-
dustry working on projects. "If a stu-
dent has an idea that he would like to
test out, industries that come into
this program will make their facili-
ties available as sort of an outgrowth
of our labs," Atkins said.
He said the program differs from
an internship because "the student
would have, perhaps, more preroga-
tive than normal defining the project
that they want to do."
"About $1 million will go into
an endowment to support the chair
and then the rest of it will go to stu-
dents support and to the setting up
of the program," Atkins added. "A
lot of the money will go toward
scholarships for the students."
Currently, the School of Engi-
neering offers manufacturing options
within the mechanical, industrial,
and electrical engineering programs.
This allows students to get a degree
in one of these divisions and still
take courses in manufacturing.
bly representatives argued that since
the article was written by a Jew, it
wasn't anti-Semitic.
"As a Jewish theologian, that's
his job to criticize Jewish theology,"
said David Levin, an opinion staffer,
in defense of the author. "As Jewish
people they have the right to make
criticisms about the Jewish commu-
However, LSA Rep. Ori Lev ar-
gued that Jews indeed can be anti-
Semitic. Lev maintained that the real
issue at hand was that this was not
an isolated incident and the Daily
was violating its own policy.
"If they're choosing to not print
racist articles, they cannot selec-
tively choose to not print racist arti-
cles and then print anti-Semitic arti-
cles," he said.
In other business, the assembly
took a half hour to discuss the im-
plications of destructive politicking
that some representatives felt was
hurting MSA.
Student General Counsel John
Coleman said members who dealt
behind cotrs' backs were disrupting
the credibility of MSA and seriously
hurting the assembly's cohesiveness.


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Only nine people; re-
mained unaccounted for yesterday - one week after
Northern California's ravaging earthquake. *
The U.S. Geological Survey on Tuesday also revised
upward the magnitude of the Oct. 17 quake from 6.9 to
7.1 on the Richter scale.
A $2.85 billion quake aid bill passed the U.S. House
of Representatives.
Survivor Buck Helm's condition improved to serious
with his kidney function reported normal.
Demolition crews were taking down sections of In-
terstate 88 in Oakland for fear that still-standing.sec-
tions of the elevated , double-deck structure could tum-
ble like dominoes onto the 14-mile stretch that col-
lapsed in the Oct. 17 quake.
The death toll rose to 63 with a coroner's discovery
of a 39th victim among the remains dug out of the 'rub-
ble of I-880, which was the first elevated freeway built
in California.
But authorities have been able to account for all but
9 of the 280 reported missing during the last week, Cal-
ifornia Highway patrol Lt. Kris Wraa said.
"I'm not willing to speculate how many of those
nine missing people may or may not be up there," Wraa
said, referring to the collapsed freeway.
Rescue crews have not been able to locate other bod-
ies in the rubble, where 55 cars were trapped at rush
hour. This was a considerably lower number of cars
than are usually on the freeway, possibly because of the
scheduled third game of the World Series between the
bay area's two major league baseball teams.
A traffic officer reported he was "surprised at how
light traffic was " five minutes before the quake, Cali-
fornia Highway Patrol spokesman Thomas A. Noble
Four sections remain inaccessible to searchers. Dig-
ging was to resume when the threatening sections were
taken down, possibly by tomorrow. There was no'hope
of finding anyone alive, authorities said.
Seismologists at the geological survey said they re-
vised the quake's Richter to 7.1 after checking data from
18 seismic stations around the world."

Coffee or tea?

The trip's purpose in part was to
investigate the possibility of making
Bir Zeit University on the West
Bank a sister institution of the
University, said Lev.
MSA stipulated before the trip
that the MSA funds, $3,500 given
to PSC, be accounted for following
the trip and the two MSA-funded
members of the trip make a
presentation upon their return.
Neither Peterson or Blome made
a presentation before MSA, said
Lev. Upon returning from the trip,
Williams said the PSC members
have described themselves as the
"MSA delegation to the occupied
territories" in fliers and presentations
to classes.
MSA Peace and Justice
Committee Chair Ingrid Fey
disagreed with Williams' request and
said, "I am not sure that you can
hold PSC responsible for these
people who have dropped off the face
of the earth."
