CARTAGENA, Columbia (AP)
- President Bush and three Latin
American leaders, holding a drug-
fighting summit under an unusually
heavy air, sea and land security
cover, reached agreement yesterday
on a coordinated attack against co-
caine producers and murderous traf-
Bush and Colombian President
Virgilio Barco agreed that the talks
were "a significant step towards im-
proved anti-drug coordination." They
pledged that drug trafficking must be
"confronted squarely and eliminated."
Responding to Colombian com-
plaints that U.S. trade policy has
harmed its major legal exports such
as coffee, cut flowers and sugar,
Bush promised to work to help open
more U.S. markets.
Bush and Barco, who met sepa-
rately before they joined Bolivian
President Jaime Paz and.Peru's Alan
Garcia, also said in a joint statement
that drug trafficking must be
"confronted squarely and eliminated."
U.S. officials also reached agree-
ment with Bolivia to help stem the
movement of U.S. firearms into
South American nations and signed
tax accords with both Bolivia and
Peru aimed at establishing a system
to trace drug profits and money-laun-
dering schemes.
An extraordinary security blanket
was thrown over the drug summit,
as soldiers wore camouflage uni-
forms and had automatic rifles at
their sides. Helicopter gunships
made passes over the city and its
beaches, while frigates patrolled the

meal c

Daily MSA Reporter
Several Michigan Student
Assembly members are pushing for
a change in the University's dorm
meal credit procedures and will ask
students to sign a petition support-
ing their proposed changes.
LSA first-year students Joe Scia-
rotta and Rob Rielly are spearhead-
ing the effort to change the meal
credit policies, claiming they are un-
"Right now, you get thirteen
meals a week, two meals a day, and
if you don't eat one of those meals,
you lose it," Rielly said. "What
we're pushing for is spreading those
meals out. You get 400 meals for
the year, and you can budget your
meals however you want."
"The system we're working on
will be similar to an all 'Entree
Plus' system, where you have the
choice, and where it's not set in
stone," Sciarotta added.

redit r
Along with the 400 meal-a-year
plan, the MSA representatives also
call for smaller meal plans. Sciarotta
pointed out that 100- and 200-meals-
a-year plans would appeal to students
living off campus.
"We're trying to build up a base
of support, to get the word out that
the students are fed up with getting
ripped off on meal credit, and we
want some fair play in the system,"
Sciarotta said.
A petition drive which will call
for the changes is scheduled to take
place outside of the dorm's cafeterias
all of next week, Sciarotta explained.
Even though they have set a goal
for 1,000 signatures, Sciarotta and
Rielly would like to get up to 3,000
people to sign.
"We want to get several thousand
signatures so that the administration
will know that there is a concerned
constituency on campus that is tired
of getting ripped off, and wants a
change," Sciarotta said. "We need

these signatures so that we know we
have some backing, some legiti-
The MSA representatives are con-
fident students will rally behind their
cause and say getting enough signa-
tures will not be a problem. "Who
wouldn't sign the petition?," Rielly
"We've talked to people in both
Housing and Student Services, and
we're confident that if we get the le-
gitimacy of students' names on peti-
tions that only positive things can
and will happen," Rielly said.
"We're going to go forward, not
fighting the administration but
working with them for a positive
change for the students."
Reaction from the administration
was cautious, but positive. Food
Services Director David Prentkowski
said the MSA representatives' pro-
posal could be considered.
"There are alternatives to our sys-

the slogan simply reflects the fact

Alumni give corpses
as sign of support
by Josephine Ballenger



* Daily Staff Writer
When most people think of
death,hthey don't think of it as an act
of giving. But it can be.
In fact, donating your body may
be the ultimate act of showing loy-
alty to your alma mater, if you don't
mind being renamed.
Medical centers always need dead
bodies. In Michigan, there are three
schools, U-M, Michigan State Uni-
* versity, and Wayne State University
which can legally accept bodies
under the state Anatomy Board's
jurisdiction. These universities re-
serve the right, however, to dis-
tribute bodies to other schools.
At U-M Medical School, an aver-
age of 300-350 bodies a year are do-
nated for study to the graduate and

Inteflex (combined undergraduate-
graduate degree) medical programs
and dental students.
The bodies come from people
who will their bodies or from fami-
lies who give the bodies after death.
There is also a small amount of
unidentified corpses which do not
have state-funded burials and are do-
nated for study and research by the
State Anatomy Board.
The bodies come in all ages and
sizes. In the U-M Gross Anatomy
:lass, there is "a 95-year-old and
there's one that's 27," said Bill
Chung, an Inteflex junior.
But the range in age has much
less of an effect than that of the size
of the body. Whereas a smaller body
