Women
sacrifice
careers
for mates
by the College Press Service
Many college women abandon or
subordinate their career goals to their
mates' careers, a researcher at the
University of Colorado has found.
Margaret Eisenhart, a professor at
UC, surveyed 350 women at two
unnamed universities, and regularly
interviewed 23 of the women over a
period of eight years.
By the end of the period, only
five of the 23 women had full-time
careers, although all 23 had started
college with ambitions of becoming
doctors, lawyers or diplomats,
Eisenhart reported.
Most of the other women had
children and part-time jobs they re-
ally didn't want, having sacrificed
their plans in favor of their hus-
bands' or boyfriends' careers, she
said.
Eisenhart said they had fallen vic-
tim to "a sexual auction block where
their attractiveness to men is contin-
ually being reviewed and ranked by
their peers.
"It's a subtle peer system by
which men and women are reproduc-
ing the status quo in gender rela-
tions."
Some female college students say
Eisenhart is off-track.
Amy Egeland, an elementary edu-
cation major at Central Washington
University, called Eisenhart's com-
ments "harsh."
"Isn't it natural to want to meet
people?" Egeland asked.
Egeland, who is engaged and will
be putting her fiance through law
school, said she thought. both men
and women face losses in a situation
where both parties want to stay to-
gether and have careers.
However, other female college
students seem to agree with Esn
Esnhart's fidings.
"When I was engaged I thought I
would back down on my career until
my boyfriend got his on track," said
Gina Fatout, a government major at
New Mexico State University who
added her engagement had been bro-
ken off. -
"I think it happens a lot because
of the way we (female college stu-
dents) were raised," Fatout said.
Tanya Cook, a marketing major
at Georgia State University, ex-
plained when she started a job at her
school's college of education, one of
the first things she was asked was
why she didn't have a boyfriend.

Syrian leader

urges Iran

to

boycott Iraq

Minority enrollment edging up

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) - Syr-
ian President Hafez Assad arrived in
Tehran, Iran, Saturday for talks with
Iranian leaders. He was expected to
try to convince them not to send
food and medicine to Iraq, which
would violate the U.N. embargo.
Assad was also expected to bring
up the issue of Western hostages
held in Lebanon by pro-Iranian
groups, diplomats and news reports
said.
The Syrian leader, an archrival of
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, has
allied himself with the Americans
and others against Saddam following
the Aug. 2 invasion of Kuwait.
Arriving at Tehran's Mehrabad
airport for his first visit to Iran, As-
sad said he was happy to be among
his "dear brethren," Tehran radio re-
ported.
U.S. officials hope Assad's lever-
age in Tehran - stemming from his
support of Iran during the 1980-88
war with Iraq - will persuade Presi-
dent Hashemi Rafsanjani not to help
Saddam circumvent the trade em-
bargo.
Diplomatic reports have sug-
gested Iran may allow food and
medicine into Iraq, which agreed to
formally end its war with Iran last
month. The peace agreement freed
tens of thousands of troops from
Iraq's eastern border for redeployment
in southern Iraq and occupied
Kuwait.
Assad, who met last week with
Secretary of State James Baker, is
believed to be carrying a message for
Rafsanjani from Washington D.C.,
seeking an agreement under which
Tehran would abide by the sanctions.
He also is expected to stress to

together to realize their aspirations
and goals," Shapley said of his ef-
forts to unite students into an orga-
nized front against limitation of ex-
pression.
John Anderson, a co-facilitator of
the Free Speech Coalition, gave a
brief history of the current freedom
of expression debate at MSU. Last
June, five students at MSU were ar-
rested while trying to prevent the de-
struction of their shanties from cam-
pus police.
The charges, which were later
dropped, included "camping" and
"standing with intent to camp". Both
are violations of MSU Ordinance
14.01, which prohibits camping in
public areas on campus. The rally at-
tempted to inform first-year students
of the dangers of any restriction on
the freedom of expression of stu-
dents.
Mark Fisk, a junior majoring in
Psychology at MSU's James Madi-
son residential college, said the focus
of the protest was not the right to
build a shanty, but the wider issue of
freedom of speech on Michigan
State's campus.

Iran that the U.S. intervention in the
Gulf is aimed solely at forcing Sad-
dam out of Kuwait and will not be
permanent, according to diplomatic
sources who requested anonymity.
Syria stands to gain Western ai
for its ramshackle economy and po-
litical support withheld in the past
because of alleged links to terrorism,
they said.
Tehran Radio, monitored in
Nicosia, quoted Assad as saying he
was also looking forward to meeting
Iran's spiritual leader, Ayatollah Ali
Khamenei.
"I have come to your countr
with great enthusiasm. We will mee
our dearest brethren, and in Iran we
do not feel ourselves to be
strangers," he said.
Iraq said yesterday it would de-
stroy all Mideast oilfields if the Iraqi
people were "strangled" by foreign
forces assembling in the Persian
Gulf region.
In Gatwick, England, a U.S.-
chartered Iraqi Airways jet landed at
London's Gatwick airport Saturday
night carrying 140 evacuees from
Kuwait and Iraq with more stories of
scarce food and fighting. The State
Department in Washington D.C.
said it would be the last flight char-
tered by the U.S. government.
The chartered Iraqi Airways Bo*
ing 707 later left on a return flight
to Baghdad. On board were about
160 people, including students or-
dered out by Britain and some of the
eight Iraqi Embassy staff and 23 Iraqi
civilians expelled from Britain earlier
this week, the Gatwick spokesman
said.

campus security. The University's
decision to switch to campus depu-
tized police officers meant a large re-
duction in revenue for the city.
"The Board of Regents wants to
continue cooperative relations with
the city," Mayer said.
"(The deal) could take a fee
months, but that's only a guess.
Things can move fast around here,"
Roach said
Regent Veronica Smith (D-
Grosse Ile), however, said that she
knew very little about the deal ex-
cept for what Roach mentioned at
the regents' meeting.
Smith said that because she does
not live in Ann Arbor and does n
get any Ann Arbor newspapers, sh
often does not know about Ann Ar-
bor happenings.

Despite intense efforts by cam-
puses to make their student bodies
more diverse, minority enrollment
increased only 2 percent over the
past decade, the U.S. Department of
Education reported in early Septem-
ber.
Racial and ethnic minority
students comprised 18 percent of the
students on American campuses in
1988, up from 16 percent in 1978,
the department's National Center for
Education Statistics found.
The small gains came during a

decade of efforts to make large gains.
Eight out of every 10 college
presidents said they direct "a lot" or
"some" efforts toward increasing
minority enrollment, said a January,
1990, poll by the American Council
on Education (ACE), which
represents college presidents around
the country.
Yet only one in four said
minority enrollment actually had
risen.
"Over the years we have
maintained our minority enrollment"
at 13-14 percent, said Frederick

Sperry, registrar and executive
director of admissions for the
University of Wisconsin at
Milwaukee.
For more than five years,
Wisconsin-Milwaukee actively has
recruited minorities, working with
parents, students, high schools and
even junior high schools.
Also, each department has its
own recruiting program, Sperry said.

Nevertheless, "the numbers
not that great," Sperry admitted.

Egypt investigates

i

slayings of
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - President
Hosni Mubarak has ordered an
inquiry into the deaths of at least 24
Egyptians that Egypt says were
killed in Iraq in recent months.
Interior Minister Abdel-Halim
Moussa said Iraqi authorities have
tried to cover up the slayings by
wrapping up the bodies in coffins or
claiming they died naturally from
internal bleeding or skull fractures.
He said some of the victims were
slain on the Iraqi-Jordanian border.

24 in Iraq
Tens of thousands of Egyptians
have fled into Jordan since Iraq
invaded Kuwait on August 2. Egypt
has about 5,000 troops in Saudi
Arabia as a part of a U.S.-led
multinational force that is enforcing
a U.N. trade embargo on Iraq.
In a statement to the state-owned
newspaper Al-Ahram, Moussa said
his ministry has reliable information
that all of them were killed by the
Iraqis.
