ID cards to students

by Jose hine Ballenger
Da ily Staff Writer
U-M students will no longer be
able to borrow friends' identification
cards to go to the computing center
or to the Central Campus Recreation
Building.
But they won't have to wait in as
many lines or pay as much money
to get a new card.
By September 1991, the Housing
Division will have issued picture
IDs to all students, combining the
functions of the 23-year-old yellow
car, the residence hall meal card, and
the College of Engineering and
Business School cards. The new card
is already being used by over 90 per-
cent of Engineering and approxi-
mately 50 percent of Business stu-
dents.
The result will be a more effi-
cient system for both University of-
fices and students. Only one office
will distribute the cards, rather than
two or three, saving time and
money.
"We realized what we were doing
was a duplication of efforts," said
Randall Frank, director of informa-

tion technology at the College of
Engineering.
To replace the card, students will
incur a cost of seven dollars - the
same cost of replacing the current
meal card and Engineering or Busi-
ness IDs.
"Our hope is that it will be a bet-
ter service for students," said Robert
Holmes, assistant vice-president for
Academic Affairs.
Housing will be able to process
the card "instantaneously, in 6 or 7
minutes," said Larry Durst, adminis-
trative manager of residence opera-
tions.
The while-you-wait service will
be another convenience not granted
in the present one-day wait for the
yellow card's replacement, or worse,
the few weeks it takes for the Engi-
neering card, said Andy Hoover, an
Engineering junior.
The card also has a magnetic
stripe which recalls the student's
identification number for CRISP,
meals, library check-out, laborato-
ries, and other facilities.
In addition, University adminis-
trators think loss and misuse will

pose less problems, since the picture
ID is non-transferable. "It will cut
down on theft," said Randall Frank,
director of information technology at
the College of Engineering.
"It's a good idea because people
always steal IDs, but I'd rather keen

'U' Students participate
in minority recruitment

by Cherie Curry
and Stephen Henderson
The annual phone call-out pro-
gram, in which University students
call prospective minority students
from all over the U.S., was held last
night in the Admissions Office of
the Student Activities Building. The
program is part of an effort by the
Admissions Offiee to accomplish tfie
goal of proportional representation at
the University.
The call-out is part of the Am-
bassador Program, which is aimed at
involving students currently enrolled
in the University in the recruitment
of minorities.
The Ambassador Program uses
many different methods of involving
students in the recruitment process.
Identifying and recommending
prospective students, visiting high
schools, and acting as hosts for vis-
iting students are some of the efforts
Accused
Angell
*Hall rap ist
acquitted
by Mike Sobel
Daily Crime Reporter
Delano Willis, a 42-year-old De-
troit resident, was acquitted Friday in
Washtenaw County Circuit Court of
first degree criminal sexual conduct.
Willis had been accused of raping a
* University student at gunpoint in an
Angell Hall restroom on May 29,
1988.
The survivor described her as-
sailant as having a thin build and be-
ing approximately 6 feet tall. She
said he wore a blue and white short-
sleeved tennis shirt and matching
shorts.
The survivor identified Willis
from a group of photos. The photo
police showed her was taken from
the files of Michigan State Univer-
sity campus police. Willis had
pleaded guilty to a charge of disor-
derly conduct in East Lansing before
being charged with the rape.
On May 19 of last year, Willis, a
Michigan Commerce Department
trade analyst who worked at the Uni-
versity's Business School from
1972-1978, was granted a mistrial
after the jury failed to reach a verdict.

included in the Program.
"Our whole job is dealing with
people. It's the people to people
contact that's going to make the dif-
ference," said Donald Swain, Asso-
ciate Director of Admissions. "We
don't monitor what they say. They
are free to describe the University
and talk about their own experiences.
We "try to make them feel comfort-
able so that they don't feel lost."
Prospective student Tara Adams
of Detroit who received a call said, "I
thought it was a nice idea. They
seemed real concerned. They told me
a lot about the program."
The Ambassador program began
five years ago, as the Each One
Reach One Program, a creation of
former Admissions Officer Dave
Robinson. This program, which is
now only one part of minority re-
cruitment efforts, entails the identifi-
cation and recommendation of

prospective students by students cur-
rently enrolled in the University.
The current program includes 238
students who work year-round
throughout the admissions process.
"I heard about the interaction
with inner city youth, and being
from Detroit Pershing High School,
I felt a strong need to go back and
make the students there aware of the
opportunities available at an institu-
tion such as the University of
Michigan," said Yolanda Davis, a
senior in LS&A.
The program, although successful
in its past recruitment, is still grow-
ing. "Part of our goal is to continue
to expand to help people to under-
stand that U of M is a place where
all students are welcome," stated
Swain, "We hope to evolve eventu-
ally into a mentorship type pro-
gram."

Women use'Pill

improperly

89 percent of women in University study
neglect to follow birth control pill guidelines

by Emily Miller,
Preventing pregnancy is not just
a matter of deciding to use the birth
control pill. In order to be effective,
the pill must be used properly.
According to a recent University
report, only 11 percent of the 612
women studied actually followed the
six guidelines for taking the pill cor-
rectly.
The 26-month study was con-
ducted at the Michigan Public
Health Department family planning
clinic by Deborah Oakley and Jeffrey
Parent, a graduate student at Arizona
State University.
"Surprising numbers of women
don't follow them (the rules) as they

should. and I suspect they don't be-
cause doctors and nurses may not
mention the rules in the first place,"
said Oakley, professor of nursing and
interim director of nursing research
at the University.
The six rules are:
use only your own pills
take the pills in the prescribed
order
finish all the pills in the pack
take a pill every day
take them within two hours of
the same time each day
if a pill is missed for two or
more days, use an alternative
method of birth control for the
remainder of the cycle.

Using another woman's pills
"particularly happens with college
students because they make unpre-
dictable overnight stays," said Oak-
ley. "They go to a friend's house or
go home and forget their pills, so
then they borrow them or take
somebody else's."
Oakley stressed that it is impor-
tant to take the pills in the right
order because the hormones in each
pill may be different and taking them
out of order may disrupt the cycle.
There are typically 21 hormone pills
and seven placebos in each pack.
If pills are missed for two or
more days, Oakley said other types

MSA cuts budgets
to fund Earth Day

By Daniel Poux
Daily MSA Reporter
Nine of the Michigan Student
Assembly's committees agreed to
huge cuts in their yearly budgets,
enabling the assembly to increase its
funding for Earth Day 1990.
At last night's weekly MSA
meeting almost 100 members of the
Earth Day student group packed the
assembly's chambers and pleaded
with the assembly to allocate as
much money as possible for the
Earth Week events. The week will
take place April 2-6.
The various MSA committees
and commissions tentatively agreed
to allocate $7,889 to the Earth Day
1990 group, with significant cuts
across the assembly.
The Earth Day representatives
explained that the funding was nec-
essary to bring two well-known en-
vironmentalists, ecologist Barry
Commoner and Consumer Advocate
Ralph Nader, to campus for Earth
Day. Both speakers have requested
honorariums of over $4,500.
LSA Senior Rachel Stevens, Co-
Chair of the Earth Day 1990 Com-
mittee, said the group's initial re-
quest was $9,500, but they were ex-
tremely pleased with the allocation
and should be able to make up the

"Some people can't fit -these
speeches and other events into their
budget, but we still want them to
get involved, and get interested."
Reaction among assembly mem-
bers was mixed. Laura Peterson,
Budget Priorities vice chair, said that

she was originally skeptical about
the size of the requested allocation
but was encouraged by the assembly
members' cooperation.
"I'm very glad that the MSA
committees were willing to cut their
budgets for the Earth Day funding,"
Peterson said. "With the way rela-
tions have been on the assembly
lately, it really means a lot."
But engineering Senior Jeff John-
son, one of the two MSA representa-
tives who voted against the pro-
posal, could not believe the amount
