Boles-Snow forecast
*hazy for 'The Rivalry'

LASC unsatisfied
with Duderstadt's
El Savadorlette

by Adam Benson
Daily Football Writer
Reporters arrived at Bo Schem-
bechler's weekly press conference
wanting to talk about running backs
and Roses.
Yet even with all the video
cameras, microphones and notebooks
throughout the room, the local
media corps may as well have been
sitting around a crackling fire, with
Schembechler dressed in a wool
cardigan, sipping cocoa. Such a

setting seems much more approp-
riate for listening to Uncle Bo
reminiscing over one of his favorite
tales, simply called 'The Rivalry'.
However, both participants in the
midwestern version of 'The Game'
appear worried over the condition of
their top running backs. Michigan's
Tony Boles may be out of action
after his knee injury in the Min-
nesota game. Meanwhile, Ohio State
tailback Carlos Snow left the
Wisconsin game, also because of a
knee injury.

"(Snow's) situation is pretty sim-
ilar to Tony Boles'," Schembechler
said yesterday.
Lost in the hype given to An-
thony Thompson, Darrell Thompson
and Boles, Snow is one of the
conference's better running backs,
gaining 948 yards in 177 attempts
this season.
Michigan is anticipating Snow.
"(Ohio State coach John) Cooper
says he's not sure if he'll be ready,
but I'm sure he realizes that this is

Vote on mandatory recycling closer

as group
by Tara Gruzen
Daily City Reporter
The first of many long-awaited
reports on the feasibility of proposed
recycling programs for Ann Arbor
was presented by a consulting firm
at last night's city council meeting.
R.W. Beck, the consulting firm
which was hired by the city to inves-
tigate the practicality of recycling,
concluded that mandatory recycling
would be more cost-effective than a
fee-based program.
The latter was proposed by
Councilmember Tom Richardson
(R-Fifth Ward) last month and is

reports t
termed as a variable can rate. Under
this program, people with extra trash
who do not recycle would be charged
a fee for waste removal. The cost
would be calculated according to the
number of filled trash cans over an
allowed amount.
The Beck report last night
stressed the importance of creating a
workable program before either
mandatory recycling or a fee rate is
instituted. This program would in-
clude convenience factors which
would make it easier for citizens to
recycle and a full-scale education
program.

6 council
"There will be less cost passed on
to the homeowner and the program
will happen faster," said Dave Kahl,
the project manager of the Beck
committee that has been working on
the reports. However, Kahl said that
mandatory recycling and a fee rate are
not mutually exclusive.
Michael Garfield, the environ-
mental issues director of the Ann
Arbor Ecology Center, said he agrees
in most part with the report's find-
ings.
"It said pretty much everything
we have been saying all along,"
Garfield said. "If you want to maxi-

Daily Staff Writer
University President James Dud-
erstadt expressed his "heartfelt sym-
pathy and sense of outrage at the
brutal massacre" of six Jesuit priests
at the University of Central America
last week, in a letter released yester-
day. The letter was addressed to the
Acting Rector of the University of
Central America.
The move came one business day
after a group of 150 students entered
the Fleming Administration Build-
ing and demanded that Duderstadt is-
sue a statement denouncing U.S. aid
to El Salvador.
Futhermore on Friday, a group of
"concerned faculty" sent a letter to
Duderstadt asking him to condemn
last week's killings.
Walt Harrison, executive director
of University relations, said the let-
ter was not a result of the protest,
organized by the Latin American
Solidarity Committee (LASC).
Rather, Harrison said, "it's an ex-
pression of his personal feelings
over the murders of faculty in El
Salvador."
He added that the students
brought the matter to Duderstadt's
attention, but, "writing the letter
was fundamentally something he

wanted to do."
Ethics and Religion Prof. Bob
Hauert, a member of the faculty
group who petitioned Duderstadt,
said he thought the letter "sounded
good."
"I wonder why it was so hard to
write that," Hauert said.
However, LASC was not as im-
pressed.
"Clearly Duderstadt is so out of
touch, he doesn't even know which
university we have a relationship
with," said David Austin, an LSA
senior and member of LASC's steer-
ing committee.
In the letter, Duderstadt wrote,
"We at the University of Michigan
are particularly affected, since last
year our student government, the
Michigan Student Assembly,
adopted a sister-university relation-
ship with your university."
The MSA's sister relationship is
in fact with the University of El
Salvador, also located in San Sal-
vador.
Pam Galpern, an RC senior and
member of LASC, said that LASC
had wanted more than a letter of
sympathy.
"This is not an adequate re-
sponse," Galpern said, "this is Dud-
erstadt's attempt to appease us."

mize the amount of garbage you are
recycling, mandatory is the way to
go."
Councilmember Larry Hunter (D-
First Ward) said, although he sup-
ports a mandatory recycling pro-
gram, it would be unwise to initially
attach penalties to people who do
not adhere.
"It is unwarranted to get citizen's
fears up that they will be put in jail
if they don't recycle," Hunter said.
A final vote on recycling is ex-
pected within the next few months.

Czechs stage demonstrations
against Communist party rule

,

PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia (AP) - More than
200,000 people filled the streets of Prague yesterday,
demanding free elections and the resignation of the hard-
line leader in the largest protest ever in this Communist
nation.
For the first time in decades, major protests involv-
ing tens of thousands of citizens also broke out in other
cities, state-run Czechoslovak TV said.
The protests posed the greatest threat to date to the
rigid model of Communist government that has pre-
vailed here since a Soviet-led invasion crushed the
"Prague Spring" reform movement in 1968.
Czechoslovak TV said at least 200,000 people took
part in the capital march. It also reported 20,000
protesters in the city of Brno, 10,000 in Bratislava and
5,000 in Libereo.
"Freedom!" and "End to one party rule!" cried the
demonstrators in Prague. Their protest began with a few
hundred people in central Wenceslas Square and turned
S into a triumphal march for democracy, accompanied by

ity... can only seriously threaten the implementation of
necessary change and bring the society into a crisis with
unforeseeable consequences," the 67-year old leader said
on television.
In a sharp break with usual practice, the television
devoted extensive coverage to the demonstrations, and
the official news agency CTK and the Czechoslovak ra-
dio reported the protestors' demands for free elections.
Romanian leader
rules out reform
BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) - Nicolae Ceaus-
escu rejected the reform sweeping Eastern Europe and
said yesterday the land he rules like a feudal lord will
stick to its rigid Marxist course. Thousands of support-
ers cheered and applauded on cue.
