ResComp
cutting
*back on
monitors
by Crystal Gilmore
Residence hall computing sites
will no longer have monitors be-
ginning Jan. 1 of next year.
In an effort to save money,
ResComp is installing card-readers
to replace the monitors currently in
Alice Lloyd, Bursley, East Quad,
Mosher Jordan, Mary Markley,
South Quad, and West Quad, and
they are also creating a new consult-
ing position.
"Monitors are expensive com-
*pared to a small system - which is
actually a convenience also," said
ResComp Trainer Todd Hollman.
This change will allow students
to use the computing sites during
the day when it used to be closed.
However it also means there will be
times when no one will be around to
answer students' questions.
ResComp is in the process of hir-
*ing consultants to monitor the sites
during the busiest times to help
students, and there will still be
ResComp trainers present at the
sites at night.
ResComp Director Mary Simoni
said she anticipates a couple prob-
lems with the new arrangement. She
expressed concern about how the
residence hall computing centers
will enforce and maintain waitlists
during exam periods and how it
will issue start-up disks so students
can use the computers.
Even though, Simoni said, "If
people aren't finding it different,
and they're getting their questions
answered - then it's a change for
the better."
*Man charged with
raping female
houseguest
Officers of the Ann Arbor
Police Department (AAPD) have
apprehended a man who allegedly
forced sex upon a female acquain-
tance staying in his home on the
2000 block of Canterbury.
The assailant knocked on the
woman's door at 12:01 a.m. on Nov.
11. He told her he wanted sex, and
when she refused he grabbed her and
threw her down on the bed. He then

elects new executive board

DETROIT (AP) - Mazda Mo-
tor Corp. said yesterday it will buy
$3 billion in U.S.-built auto prod-
ucts by 1994, following two
Japanese automakers seeking to ease
criticism that Japan sells to the U.S.
market but shuns buying from it.
Mazda said the figure would
more than double the $1.43 billion
spent on auto parts and materials
and for U.S.-made cars for import to
Japan in 1990.
The company also will increase
the number of cars it purchases from
Ford Motor Co., which shares pro-
duction at Mazda's plant in Flat
Rock, Mich., about 25 miles south
of Detroit. Ford owns 25 percent of
Mazda.
Mazda said it also would:
" Increase the domestic content
of cars it builds at Flat Rock to
more than 75 percent.
Buy more Ford-builtvehicles
sold in the U.S. under the Mazda
nameplate.
Import more U.S.-made auto
parts and materials to Japan for use
in vehicles assembled there.
Mazda announced Nov. 6 plans
to incorporate two dozen U.S.-made
parts into its Japan-built 626 series.
Current 626s have eight U.S.-made
parts. The value of U.S. vehicles,
parts, materials and other materials

sent to Japan will increase to $345
million in 1994 from $256 million
in 1990, the company said.
The moves announced yesterday
are the latest attempts by Japanese
auto companies to blunt criticism
over last year's $9.8 billion U.S.-
Japan trade deficit in auto parts. The
overall deficit was about $30 bil-
lion.
The September U.S.-Japan trade
deficit announced yesterday was
$6.79 billion, up from $6.53 billion
in August. It was the highest in
eight months.
Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. said Nov.
7 that its spending on U.S. parts
will grow to $3.3 billion in 1994
from $1.3 billion in 1990. Toyota
Motor Corp. said Nov. 10 that its
spending on U.S. parts, materials
and equipment will grow to $5 bil-
lion by 1994 from $1.2 billion in
1988.
Vice President Dan Quayle urged
Japanese automakers earlier this
year to increase their purchases of
U.S.-made parts for use in
"transplants," such as Mazda's Flat
Rock plant.
U.S. Reps. Sander Levin (D-
Mich.) and Richard Gephardt (D-
Mo.) have proposed laws that could
result in trade barriers to countries
deemed to be trading unfairly.

A proposed Bring-Your-Own-
Beer policy for Greek system par-
ties dominated discussion last
night as the Panhellenic Associa-
tion elected new executive board
members.
Laura Hansen, an LSA junior
and member of Delta Delta Delta,
was elected president of the execu-
tive board. She cited the changes in
the alcohol policy as a key issue.
"We've been a target campus,
targeted for scrutiny by the na-
tional system, for a long time be-
cause most other campuses have
switched to dry or BYO (bring
your own) policies," Hansen said.
"I see the need for a new policy,
but not necessarily BYO. The
Greek system as a whole has to de-

After the intercourse, he took a
picture of her genitals and hung it,

on his bedroom wall, reports said.
Although the suspect has been
apprehended, Lt. Allen Hartwig
said the woman has not yet decided
if she wants to press charges.

velop one because we are liable as
an organization."
The board elected Susie Kridler,
a member of Alpha Delta Pi, as vice
president. The new judicial vice
president is Colleen Sirhall, an
Alpha Phi member and recent
transfer from Marquette Univer-
sity. Sirhall was a founding mem-
ber of the Panhellenic Board at
Marquette.
Other newly elected members
of the executive board included: in-
ternal rush chair Jocelyn Lupert
from Delta Phi Epsilon, external
rush chair Carrie Blackwell from
Alpha Chi Omega, Secretary Julie
Martin from Alpha Chi Omega,
Treasurer Nicole Miller from Al-
pha Epsilon Phi, Social Chair Amy

Friedlander from Kappa Alpha
Theta, Program Chair Joleen Min-
neman from Alpha Phi, and Public-
ity Chair Meghan Cleary from
Delta Gamma.
Katy Kendall, the current pres-
ident of the Panhellenic Associa-
tion, said she found all the candi-
dates extremely well. qualified.
"Panhel has made a lot of progress
this year and the results of these
elections show it will continue to
move forward."
The Panhellenic association
draws its membership from the
University's sororities, and creates
policies for those sororities. It also
contributes to the maintenance of
the entire Greek system.

Student pulls gun
by S. Quad lounge
Two students filed a report with
the University Department of
Public Safety and Security (DPSS)
after another student allegedly
pulled a revolver out of his waist-
band in front of the Ambatana
African-American student lounge in
South Quad.
The incident occurred last
Saturday at 12:38 a.m., according to
police reports.
The students said the perpetrator
was accompanied by two other stu-
dents, one wielding a baseball bat.
No suspects have been identified,
and an investigation is continuing.
Woman reports

According to DPSS reports, a
female University student was as-
saulted by a male companion on the
Diag.
The alleged attack took place at
8:35 p.m. on Nov. 17.
Lt. Vernon Baisden said the as-

Man denied Union
entrance said to
threaten guard
A man allegedly threatened the
life of a Michigan Union security
officer after being denied entrance
into the building last Friday at 3:14
a.m.
According to DPSS reports, the
man told the officer he would shoot
him if he was not let in. The man
then reached into his coat as if to
grab a gun, police said.
Police said they never saw a
weapon, and the suspect fled before

he could be identified or appre-
hended. The investigation is
continuing.
Homemade bomb

A homemade bomb exploded in a
mailbox at a home on the 3000

Officers who responded to the

Lt. Allen Hartwig said the
AAPD received many reports of
mailbox bombs during the summer,
but that Saturday's was the first in
months.
