although he promised Fisher and his
parents that he would return to
obtain his degree in sports manage-
ment and communication.
Higgins averaged 14 points per
game this season but was saddled
with a stress fracture of the left foot
midway through the Big Ten season;
causing him to miss four games and
his starting position. Demetrius
Calip moved into the starting lineup
with Mike Griffin moving to
Higgins' position.
Higgins' decision had been wide-
ly expected as well as criticized.
After Michigan lost to Loyola Mary-
mount in the NCAA tournament,
Higgins remained in California to
discuss his future with his family.
He later met with Fisher and notified
him of his decisior last week.
At Monday night's awards
banquet, Fisher talked about each

- except Higgins. Higgins has long
spoken about his desire to turn
professional. The injury as well as
the fact that Michigan would be
losing four starters may have
contributed to his decision.
If Higgins had remained at Mich-
igan, he would have become the
Wolverines' number one offensive
option. Higgins worried that he
would often be double or triple
teamed with so many inexperienced
players surrounding him.
Most NBA experts say Higgins
could be a first round draft choice if
he matured another year in college.
Most place Higgins to go some-
where in the second round of the
two-round NBA draft. However,
being drafted is no guarantee that a
player will remain on an NBA
roster. Already, seven of the 27
players drafted in the second round of
last year's NBA draft are not on an
NBA roster.
In addition, the salary differential
from being a first and second round
draft pick could result in millions of
dollars lost through the lifetime of a
His father, Earle Higgins, a
former NBA player who starred at
Eastern Michigan has disagreed with
his son's decision. Pistons General
Manager Jack McCloskey told The
Detroit News that Higgins' decision
is a "drastic mistake" saying Higgins
was only a "marginal player."

parecidos ( an emotive Spanish term
which means disappeared ones).
Vigil activities included singing
songs and reading poetry.

Doctors test more for profit
Boston - Doctors at the nation's largest chain of walk-in clinics per-
formed about 20 percent more tests and X-rays after the owners began let-
ting them keep part of the fees their patients paid, a study found.
The study found that doctors subjected their patients to more tests and
other care when they personally profited from the extra care. The study
implied that whether or not a sick person receives a test or a procedure can
depend on what the doctor makes, rather than strictly what the patient
While this conflict of interest may influence care at many levels of
medicine, the latest study focused on storefront walk-in clinics, which
often pay their doctors a percentage of their patients' total bills.
About 4,000 walk-in clinics have sprung up in suburban shopping
strips and in downtown business districts during the past decade.
Germany negotiates unity in
face of economic hardships
EAST BERLIN - Farmers vowed to drive their tractors through East
Berlin, and telephone workers yesterday called a strike, as East Germany's
new leaders tried to find a fair formula for unity with West Germany.
An economic institute predicted 1.5 billion East Germans would be
out of work in five years unless the country saw a spurt of growth after
merging with its wealthy western neighbor. According to official figures,
about 70,000 East Germans are unemployed now.
Major political parties said yesterday they were close to agreeing on a
blueprint for East Germany's economic and social future.
Prime Minister designate Lother de Maiziere, the conservative
Christian Democrat leader, held more talks with Social Democrats on
ways to dismantle the nation's four-decade-old socialist system.
Social Democrats want to retain a safety net of social programs to ease
the withdrawal pains of East Germans dependent on heavy subsidies.
All sides indicated they were near an agreement that likely would
include some compromises on phasing out the socialist system.
France denies paying Libya
ransom to free 3 hostages
PARIS - France rejected mounting criticism yesterday that it went
too far in praising Libyan leader Colonel Moammar Gadhafi for helping
free three hostages, and it denied paying a ransom of three warplanes for
their release.
A newspaper reported that the Libyan navy was the real abductor of the
French and Belgians seized in November 1987 off the coast of the Israeli-
occupied Gaza Strip. It said France bargained both with Libya and a group
led by terrorist Abu Nidal.
The government insisted it did not bargain with terrorists. But detrac-
tors made little distinction between Gadhafi and Abu Nidal's Fatah-Revo-
lutionary Council, a Palestinian terrorist group Gadhafi has supported.
The hostages were held in Lebanon, not Libya as widely believed,
hostage Jacqueline Valente's brother-in-law, Andre Metral, said at a news
conference. He said the freed hostages had been treated well by their cap-

INDIANAPOLIS - More than 1,500 friends and admirers, including
first lady Barbara Bush and singer Michael Jackson, bid farewell yesterday
to Ryan White, the young AIDS victim who taught the nation a lesson in
Ryan's mother, Jeanne, sat with her 16-year-old daughter, Andrea, and
Jackson, who had befriended Ryan. Ryan's father, Wayne, who is divorced
from Mrs. White, also attended.
Singer Elton John, who had maintained a bedside vigil during Ryan's
final week of life, led the congregation in singing a hymn, then accompa-
nied himself as he sang his own composition, "Skyline Pigeon."
Rev. Raymond Probasco noted thatsmany celebrities had befriended
Ryan during his struggle with AIDS and his legal battle to attend public
school. He said Ryan's life, like theirs, also was successful.
"He helped us to care and to believe that with God's help, nothing is
impossible, even for a kid."
Comerica goes Krogering
DETROIT (AP) - Customers at six Detroit area grocery stores can
get greens or greenbacks at the same location in a banking experiment by
Comerica Inc.
The bank-holding company has opened full-service branches in six
Kroger stores since last summer and plans to open three more this year.
Vice President Gary Laidlaw said the idea's time has come.
"I've been in the business long enough so I remember when ATMs
were a kind of dream for years, but then all of a sudden the time was right
and ATMs spread like wildfire," Laidlaw said. "I think this will follow the
same pattern."
Eight percent of 250 banks in a recent nationwide survey said they
planned to put branches in supermarkets this year, said Colleen Jamison,
market research expert for Sheshunoff & Co. of Austin, Texas. Comerica
apparently was the only one in Michigan.
