While Regent Thomas Roach's
suggestion last month to remove all
shanties from the Diag put many
people up in arms, Charles Tackett
has taken a seat.
Tackett, an Ann Arbor resident
and Vietnam veteran known as the
Colonel, took up residence on the
Diag yesterday at noon. He plans to
stay there until he receives assurance
from University officials that the
Diag remain a "constitutionally safe
"All I want is a letter assuring
me the constitutionality of the Diag
is being worked on," said Tackett.
"People come from around the world
to see the Diag, I want to preserve
At last month's regent meeting
Roach proposed to relocate the
shanties because he said they are "an
unsightly mess." Roach's proposal
has drawn fire from many different
campus groups.
Tackett said he has written letters
to University President James Dud-
erstadt, the Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA), and the Ann Ar-
bor City Council requesting they
make an effort to maintain the Diag

Women who have science degrees
don't have to be researchers, said
speakers yesterday in a panel discus-
sion titled "Careers in Science: Aca-
demic Alternatives."
About 50 people attended the
program which was sponsored by the
Women in Science Program of the
Center for the Education of Women
(CEW), in the East Conference
Room of the Rackham building.
The panelists were chosen be-
cause they represent women who
have careers in non-traditional fields
related to science.

Head, an Environmental Service co-
ordinator for Washtenaw County
who has a Ph.D. in Toxicology
from the University, said a lack of
science Ph.D.s has made it possible
for people with Master's and Bache-
lor's degrees to get government jobs.
Mary Beth Dorr, a pharmokinet-
ics Ph.D. and employee of Parke-
Davis, added there is a need for peo-
ple with science degrees in industrial
"From the time the chemical is
conceived until it is marketed, and
even then, there are places for people

Colonel Charles Tackett takes up position on the diag yesterday. Tackett is protesting the planned
beautification of the Ingalls mall, which he claims is a plot by the administration to suppress protest. Tackett
is also protesting a proposal by Regent Roach to take the shanties off the diag.

"I'm not representing any groups,
I just want to give people a faint
memory of what the constitution is
all about," said Tackett. "A lot of
times arrogant people need to be rc-
minded of the social hurt and pain in
this country."
Tackett's protest is actually two-
pronged. Another goal of his is to
prevent remodeling of the Diag as
part of the Ingall's mall beautifica-
tion project. The Ingall's mall,
presently under construction, will

stretch from the Rackham building
to the steps of the Graduate Library.
Based on a suggestion from
Tackett, MSA representative Corey
Dolgan made a proposal at the
Assembly's meeting two weeks ago
aimed at preserving the Diag as a fo-
rum for free speech.
Dolgan said like Tackett he fears
that as part of the beautification pro-
ject the size of the Diag will be sig-
nificantly reduced, making it a much
less effective forum for protests.
But Executive Director of Uni-

versity Relations Walter Harrison
said the Ingall's Mall plans have "no
intent to encroach on the Diag." In-
stead, he said the project will put
flowers, grass, and brick sidewalks
in the area between North University
and the Diag.
Students relaxing on the Diag
yesterday seemed to pay little atten-
tion to Tackett. However LSA
sophomore Kevin Fencil com-
mented, "If his aim is to protect our
free speech, then it's a good idea."

office and ask what they can do with degrees

Gorbachev, however, also urged
patience and said Moscow's rela-
tions with the Baltic republic would
continue unchanged for now in the
wake of Sunday's vote by Lithua-
nian lawmakers to break away from
the Soviet Union.
Despite the Soviet leader's tough
line, several deputies from the Baltic
republics of Lithuania, Latvia and
Estonia said they had strong reason
to believe Moscow would nonethe-*
less enter negotiations on indepen-
dence for the three states, which were
annexed to the Soviet Union in

Lithuanian deputy Algimantas
Chekuolis. "He'll change his stand."

Tainter, who obtained a Master's
