'U' gives faculty
members teaching e
scholarship honorssx~y $LlL .z\2r'e.t'e3 n

by Chastity Wilson
daily Staff Reporter
President James Duderstadt pre-
sented the Henry Russel Lectureship
and Award for 1992 - for outstand-
ing scholarship and teaching - to
two University faculty members
yesterday.
The Russel Lectureship, awarded
to Political Science Prof. Robert
Axelrod, is the most prestigious
award the University gives to senior
faculty members, while the Russel
Award, which was presented to
Associate Prof. of Internal Medicine
James Wilson, is the highest honor
for junior faculty members.
Duderstadt described the event
as the "intellectual highlight of the
academic year" and "a chance to
recognize extraordinary
achievement."
Axelrod, gave this year's lecture
titled, "The Further Evolution of
Cooperation" and spoke about how
cooperation evolves between self-in-
terested individuals.
Preceding the lecture, Wilson,
who is also chief of the division of
molecular genetics at the University
Medical Center, was granted his
award, which includes a $1,200
stipend.
Wilson, a researcher in the field
of gene replacement therapy, gained
media attention with a recent study
in which he applied his gene transfer
method to rabbits afflicted with cys-
tic fibrosis, the leading life-threaten-
ing genetic disorder in humans.
During the lecture, Axelrod de-
scribed a game called the "prisoner's

dilemma," where players may
choose to cooperate with another
player and slightly profit, or "defect"
and try to take advantage of a coop-
erative opponent.
Axelrod concluded the key to
dealing with various competitors is
to first cooperate, then mimic the
competition's last actions. He coined
this type of behavior "tit-for-tat"
strategy.
He then showed how this theory
applied to historic international poli-
tics and experiments with animals
and simple organisms.
Axelrod - considered one of his
generation's most innovative politi-
cal scientists - is the author of
many books, including "The
Evolution of Cooperation."
In 1986, Axelrod was the
youngest political scientist to be
elected to the National Academy of
Sciences. Then in 1987, the John and
Catherine MacArthur Foundation
awarded him the MacArthur
Fellowship.
Both the Russel Lectureship and
Award were created in 1925 by a
bequest from Henry Russel of
Detroit who received three degrees
from the University.
The award winners are nominated
to the University Board of Regents
by the Committee on the Henry
Russel Awards. The lectureship
winners are nominated by the
Council of the Research Club and a
committee of former Russel
lecturers.

Defense Secretary Dick Cheney points to enlarged checks during a news conference at the Pentagon yesterday. Cheney, a former member of the
House of Representatives, disclosed that he wrote at least 21 "problem checks" at the House bank.

blamed sloppy record keeping at
the bank for most of the overdrafts.
"To the public, it doesn't make a
difference if Bob Davis had 878
bad checks or 92 or 20," Davis said.
"It's still wrong and I admit that.
But the figures are wrong."

"Nevertheless, I take full re-
sponsibility for this, as I must,"
Conyers said.
Meanwhile in Washington, a
spokesperson for the U.S. attor-
ney's office said the government
has opened a criminal investigation
of activity at the House bank.
