Mich. "I told him I loved him.... I
told him he's a grandfather, he
didn't know that," she said.
The United States welcomed the
release, but White House
spokesperson Marlin Fitzwater said
the ordeal would not be over until
all Westerners were freed.
Besides Anderson, chief Middle
East correspondent for The
Associated Press, two Germans -

Thomas Kemptner and Heinrich
Struebig - are still held. Anderson,
kidnapped on March 16, 1985, is the
longest held.
The Germans were captured by
Shiite militants seeking the release
of Mohammed and Abbas Hamadi,
brothers imprisoned in Germany on
terrorism convictions.
Iran's ambassador to Germany,
Hossein Moussavian, confirmed
yesterday that Iran and Germany
have been in contact with the
Hamadi family in Lebanon
regarding the German hostages.

pleasantdisease, we have only to
look at those who have learned the
dreadful, wonderful things it has
to teach to understand."
Polly Paulson, the University's
Health Education Coordinator,
said that this type of educational
forum is necessary. "We are con-
cerned with the high incidence of
sexually transmitted disease at the
University. We assume that the
same practices that lead to those
diseases will also lead to AIDS."
Paulson also discussed the Uni-
versity's Anonymous Testing Pro-
gram. "We have had a 1.6 percent
positive rate, and we just had our
first woman test positive."
David Ostrow, the event's mod-
erator, then introduced the AIDS
victims, using only their first
names. Pat, Joe, and Tom had been
sitting undistinguished among the
audience. There were murmurs of
surprise as the panelists left their
seats and took their places in front
of the crowd. Each told his story,
highlighting specific emotional
stages and revelations they experi-
enced.
Pat discussed how easily the
disease can be contracted, citing the
first time he had intercourse as the
source of his illness. "Ignorance is
the most dangerous thing," he
claimed. "I got a letter a few
weeks after I found out that two

children had died because they were
given blood I had donated." Pat
also noted that the standard AIDS
test, which looks for antibodies to
the virus and not the virus itself,
may not be sensitive to the disease
for two years.
Joe spoke of the emotional or-
deal involved with discovering and
coping with the AIDS virus. "I got
involved with drugs to deal with
it, mainly cocaine, but drugs were
killing me as surely as the virus
was."
The decision to use AZT was
also difficult for Joe. "My T-cell
(a part of the body's immune sys-
tem) count dropped below 500, and
that was when my doctor told me
to use it. My T-cell count went
back up, but I've got side effects,
and I have to take it easy."
"The AIDS virus attacks the T-
cells," explained Pat. "The de-
crease in the cells is one way doc-
tors can measure the disease's
progress. My T-cell countdiseabout
70."
The final panelist, Tom, claimed
that AIDS saved his life. "I had
been stumbling around outside the
realm of sobriety for years. After I
found out I had the disease, and I
had cried for about a day, I was
filled with this need to survive. I
got back on the wagon and lived
right, but I was incredibly bored.
Now I live my life how I want to,
but I don't waste it in the bottle."

SAPAC
Continued from page 1
Looking back on her years as di-
rector, Steiner said she is most
proud of the attitude changes at the
University created by SAPAC .
When she began discussions with
administrators about creating an
awareness center, Steiner said the
word "rape" was rarely heard on
campus.
However, she said she has noticed
a positive change in attitudes over
the last few years.
"I think it's safe to say that the
University of Michigan is one of the
most aware campuses in the country
in that respect," Steiner said.
While she said she is proud of
SAPAC's accomplishments, Steiner
was quick to point out that the ap-
proximately 100 student volunteers
per semester deserve credit for the
program's success.
"Students are the ones who cre-
ated SAPAC," Steiner said. Pro-
grams such as Safewalk and North-
walk were created by students.
Steiner said she saw her role as help-
ing students realize their ideas.
"That feels really good to me,"
Steiner said.
Junior Robert Tyson, Safewalk
volunteer and former Northwalk
co-coordinator, said Steiner helped

federal law requires that members
be chosen from universities and in-
dustry. Earle noted that although
this creates possible conflict of in-
terest problems, these people are re-
ally the experts in their fields and
are best suited for the board.
Duderstadt was first nominated
to the board by President Reagan in
1985, and was reappointed by
President Bush last year. He ran

"She offered a voice of reason

"She was very good to work with

Tyson appreciated Steiner's sup-
port for the development of

new program with money out of
SAPAC's budget despite con-
straints placed on the center, he said.
"She was willing to do that and
it was a great vote of confidence,"
he said.
Sophomore Sarah Miller, a peer
educator, also said Steiner would be
missed.
"She made the office a warm, ac-
ceptable place for a lot of people,"
Miller said. "She helped take the
fear out of talking about (sexual as-
sault)."

tive of the job she did."

elected by other members of the
board.
"(The board members) have rec-
ognized the particular talents of the
individual," Grotke said.
Michael Fluharty, the founda-
tion's chief of public information,
said all the comments he's heard
about Duderstadt's election have
been positive.
"I think Dr. Duderstadt brings a
lot of qualities that were felt to be
good for the board," Fluharty said.
Duderstadt will complete the
term of former chair Mary Good,
who resigned to join the President's
Council of Advisors on Science and
Technology.

elections, but will not be estab-
lished until 45 days after the elec-
tions are certified.
Members of the new assembly
also participated in debate. New
LSA Rep. Robert Van Houweling
proposed that MSA request that the
Ann Arbor Parks Commission re-
open Bird Hills park to recently-

banned mountainbikers.
The resolution failed 24-4 as rep-
resentatives argued that mountain
biking posed threats to the envi-
ronment and joggers.
LSA Rep. Jeff Muir, an Ann Ar-
bor native, said, "This park is basi-
cally used by people who live by it
to get away from things whizzing
by them. This is really Ann Arbor's
best and unspoiled area and I think it
should be restricted."

concerned, David Duke is a political
con man."
Flood added that the party
"rejects Duke and his brand of racial
hatred and bigotry. We'll do what
we have to do to attempt to keep
Duke off the ballot."
Both Buchanan and Duke advo-
cate ending affirmative action hiring
guidelines and abolishing welfare
programs.
Buchanan, who is expected to
win the delegates necessary to at-
tend next summer's Republican
National Convention, is not seen as
a threat in Michigan.
"As for Buchanan, the Michigan
Republicans are supporting George
Bush and Dan Quayle, and I'm confi-
dent that Bush will do very well in
the Michigan primary on March
17," Flood said. "Bush did well
here in 1980, and of course in 1988."

Flood did say, however, that he
expects Buchanan to see some suc-
cess in other states, such as New
Hampshire.
While College Republicans
President Ron Kennedy said that his
group traditionally does not take
positions on Republican primary
elections, College Democrats
President Dana Miller commented
on the impending announcements.
"I think it's good for the
Republican party because it enables
them to distinguish their values
more," Miller said.
"As far as (how this affects) the
Democrats, I've heard some ideas
thrown around that it's not surpris-
ing for somebody with racist ideas
to come from the Republican
party," Miller added. "I don't mean
to say that all Republicans are
racist, but some of their policies do.

(Bush) vetoing the civil rights act,
and their stance on women's
rights."
