Coach of the Year Plaques.
Now former Michigan football
coach and athletic director Bo
Sphembechler will receive yet an-
other honor - a University of
Michigan diploma. The couple that
will forever be equated with Michi-
gan sports is now being honored by
the academians of the University.
The University Board of Regents
approved a resolution yesterday pre-
sented by University President James
Duderstadt which will confer
honorary degrees upon Bo and his
wvife, Millie. The Schembechlers
will be given the title of Honorary

"Rajal Patel, a graduate student in
the School of Public Health, said
dne of the main reasons many peo-
ple of color apply to schools such as
Public Health is because these fields
offer opportunities for students to
help their communities. Neverthe-
less, "there are some schools that are
doing more active recruiting than
other schools," said Patel, who is
taking a break from the University's
medical school after two years.
. Lawrence Wu, president of the
Asian American. Association, at-
tributed the small Asian enrollment
in some colleges to the lack of
Asian professors in those schools.
"There are no role models (in some
schools) and the schools don't do the
recruiting (in the Asian commu-
nity," he said.
Wu said it is the responsibility of
the University to attract more Asians
to the schools that have low enroll-

Schembechler retired from his
administrative and coaching duties to
accept a front office position with
the Detroit Tigers in January.
The resolution praised Bo for
"doing the right things, for the right
reasons." It cited his well-known
feats as football coach, but also ap-
plauded his successes as athletic di-
rector, such as improving the
women's athletic program.
Millie was given her honorary
degree for "her strength, her strong
sense of loyalty, and her basic sense
of decency." She came to Ann Arbor
in 1968 with her husband, the new
Wolverines coach. Since that time
Millie has been a leader in the fight
against drug abuse in both Ann Ar-
bor and the University.
The resolutions were passed
quickly by the regents, without op-

Medfly spraying brings
aphid swarms in California
LOS ANGELES - Ladybugs, honey bees and crickets are dropping
like flies in Medfly-infested regions of Southern California soaked in pes-
ticide, leaving gardeners to battle aphids thriving with their natural ene-
"It's gross. It's sickening," said San Gabriel Valley homemaker Peggy
Watson, whose orange trees are covered with aphids.
Frustrated gardeners are making a bee line for pesticide shelves at nurs-
eries and garden centers, where there has been a run on $4 tubes contain-
ing 1,000 ladybugs.
Pesticides sprayed by helicopters were intended to rid the region of the
Mediterranean fruit fly.
The Medfly, thought to enter the country in illegally imported fruit,
threatens part of the state's 16 billion-a-year farm economy because it
feeds on and lays eggs in more than 200 varieties of crops.
Detroit Census officials
alarmed by low return rate
DETROIT - A minivan hastily rigged with a loudspeaker plied the
streets of Detroit on yesterday, blaring taped pleas for city residents to fill
out and return their 1990 census questionnaires.
The promotion was organized by U.S. Census officials alarmed by up-
dated figures showing only 55.3 percent of the 460,000 returns mailed out
to Detroit households have been processed.
"It was more or less a last-minute effort, because the response rate was
much lower than we anticipated," said Harold Sullivan, a spokesman with
the Regional Census Center in Southfield.
Census workers handed out posters, pencils, key chains and other trin-,
kets from the truck while it played radio announcements produced earlie
this year, reminding Americans to respond to the census.
According to updated figures released yesterday, Detroit's response rate
ranked 17th of 23 major cities.
Report shows 5,000 Great
Lakes toxic spills in 80's
WASHINGTON - Oil or toxic chemicals were dumped into the
Great Lakes at least 5,003 times during the 1980's, nearly triple the num-
ber of spills previously reported, Senator Carl Levin said yesterday.
"This new data shows that the Great lakes are even more vulnerable to
oil and chemical spills than had been thought," said Levin (D-Mich).
"This information is startling, its disturbing, something we should have
had a long time ago."
The Coast Guard, which last year reported 1,800 spills in the lakes be-
tween January 1980 and September 1989, conducted a more in-depth study
after a Senate subcommittee hearing last fall.
The earlier figure consisted solely of spills in open waters and did not
include those in major tributaries, harbors and connecting channels. "It
was just inadequate figuring on their part," Levin said.
Engler attempts to disqualify
Michigan for toxic waste site
LANSING - Michigan can escape providing a low-level radioactive
waste disposal site simply by petitioning for withdrawal, Senate Majority
Leader John Engler said yesterday.
However, the executive director of the Midwest organization'
developing the site said it isn't that easy, and Michigan would have to'
prove there's no suitable place for the facility before being let off the
Engler, Representative from Mount Pleasant and candidate for
governor, announced he'll introduce a resolution next week to attempt to
disqualify Michigan for the site.
Michigan was selected in 1987 by the Midwest Interstate Low-Level
Radioactive Waste Compact to provide the first regional facility to take
waste from seven Midwest states - Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri,
Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.
London scents subway cars?
