LSA senior Mark Schiefsky has
been awarded a Power Exchange
Scholarship for studying at En-
gland's Cambridge University over
the following two years.
Established in 1968 by the Power
Foundation of Ann Arbor, the schol-
arships are awarded annually.
One scholarship is given to a
University graduate for studying at
Cambridge; another is given to a
Cambridge graduate for studying at
the University.
President of the Foundation and
former University Regent Eugene
Power said the purpose of the schol-
arships is "to promote understanding
between the two countries."
An astronomy and classical stud-

ies major, Schiefsky will study clas-
sics at Cambridge University next
fall.
"I started off studying science and
sort of acquired a fondness for classi-
cal studies," Schiefsky said. "Last
January, I found I was having more
fun with classics; that's why I'm
studying classics."
Besides providing tuition, aca-
demic fees, room and board, the
Power Scholarship also includes an
expense stipend allowing for travel
in the United Kingdom and else-
where in Europe.
"They provide me with money to
travel throughout Europe and learn
as much about Europe and Britain as
I can. That's as much a part of it as
the academics," Schiefsky said.
Schiefsky has not yet decided

speaking to the press.
Ann Arborpresident Howard
Lerner echoed this sentiment, com-
menting that the sluggish economy
has something to do with his reluc-
tance to spend money.
"Things are still too high priced.
It's just not worth it," he added.
Other merchants disagreed with
the observation that this year's post-
Thanksgiving Day sales have been
less busy.
"It was a madhouse. It was ex-
tremely busy," said 5-7-9 salesper-
son, Lisa Moilanen. "It was a good
atmosphere and the people were
pleasant. I was really surprised," she
added
Some salespeople were so busy
they were unable to give comments

about their business. In the
Hallmark store, shoppers waited in
long lines to purchase gift wrapping
materials and holiday cards.
The holiday spirit may not have
been evident in people's buying
habits, but the entire mall was
adorned with holiday decorations.
Neatly wrapped gift boxes hung
from the ceilings and green plastic
wreaths and garlands graced store-
fronts and lined the walls.
In anticipation of the post-
Thanksgiving Day sales and crowds,
some merchants hired extra help so
the regular staff could focus on help-
ing the customers.
"Our main concern is with effi-
ciency," said Angela Igrisan, assis-
tant manager of The Body Shop,
which sells hair and skin products.
Igrisan added that shoppers behave
differently this time of year.

where he will travel.
The announcement of this year's
award was made by University
President James Duderstadt at
Power's office Nov. 20.
"There were a lot of people there
I didn't know," Schiefsky said. "It
actually was not that informal."
There is an application process to
obtaining the Power Scholarship. It
includes an essay, four recommenda-
tions, and an interview. The applica-
tion was due at the beginning of
September and the interview was
conducted in October, Schiefsky
said.
Asked how he felt about having
received the scholarship, Schiefsky
replied, "I'm thrilled and I'm very
honored to be an ambassador for the
University of Michigan."
The highlight for many children
yesterday was the opportunity to
meet Santa Claus. Santa's throne
was set on a stage strewn with
enormous colorfully-wrapped gifo
boxes and Christmas trees decorated
with small, bright lights. Santa wel-
comed children onto his lap for;a
picture and sent them off with a
"Ho-Ho-Ho" and a complimentary
coloring book.
Though most students went
home for the holidays, some staydd
in Ann Arbor and were able to take
advantage of the sales in town.
Eastern Michigan student Eva
Leissou said, "I shopped early be-
cause of the sales and because of the
time. I'll be having finals soon and
I'll be too busy to shop."
"I've noticed that people are a lot
more focused. They're thinking
about what they're going to buy.
They're more intense," she said.
rection of Provost and Vice President.

Whitaker - will be composed of
four students, four faculty and four
staff. He did not yet know how the
members would be chosen.
Duderstadt also said there are
presently no proposals for a code of
non-academic student conduct. The
issue of a code was another focus of
student protest last week.

a Safer Campus (SSC) who was ar-
rested at the protest.
Another participant in last week's
sit-in, LSA senior Craig Carmack,
called the open forums "a good first
step," but expressed concern that the
University has no intention of back-
ing down on any of its previous de-

cisions.
"Swain will say, 'Nice talking to
you, but we still have our plans,"'
Carmack predicted.
Also in the interview last week,
Duderstadt revealed the nature of an
oversight committee which will
watch over the implementation of
deputization and other safety mea-
sures.
The committee - under the di-

been angry at the abolition of guar-
anteed prices for their produce under
the government's shock economic
reform plan.
If no one gets 50 percent of the
popular vote, a runoff between the

top two will be held on December 9.
Walesa himself expressed opti-
mism after voting in Gdansk with
his wife Danuta, and their second
son, Slawek.
"I voted for the candidate who is
supposed to win," Walesa said, smil-
ing.
Mazowiecki walked to the
polling station in his central Warsaw
neighborhood, accompanied with his
daughter-in-law wheeling his four-
month-old granddaughter in a
stroller.
"I am happy it stopped raining.
Otherwise the turnout would have
been much worse," said the prime
minister, the East bloc's first non-
Communist head of government.

"The way classes are taught is
very important so professors don't
put students on the defensive. I don't

Canada and Peru.
"Tyminski conducted an
American-standard campaign, break-
ing every rule," political commenta-
tor Ryszard Legutko said on state
television. During the campaign, he
was accused of slander for charges
that Mazowiecki had committed trea-
son against the nation.
The new president will take over
from President Wojciech Jaruzelski,
the Communist general who ordered
martial law to crush Solidarity and
imprisoned Walesa and Mazowiecki

courses offered. Christenson, who is
planning on applying to the
Business School, also finds it hard
to fit the courses into a schedule
packed with prerequisites.
"It's becoming a joke on cap-
pus," Christenson said. Although
she said students should take the is-.
sue seriously, she said, "If I hear the
word diversity one more time, I
think I'm going to throw up. I think
the University is shoving it down
our throats."
