COURT
Continued from page 1
by his first marriage with whom he
had no contact for nine years, and a
14-year-old daughter by a former
lover whom he has never seen.
In a press conference after the
hearing, Roberta DeBoer said, "I
know we should be overly elated ...
but we still have quite a ways to go.
"It is far from over if they (the
Schmidts) decide to continue the
fight," she added.
The Schmidts said this was ex-
actly what they plan to do.
"Would you give up your daugh-
ter?" Daniel Schmidt asked in re-
sponse to a question.
Schmidt shrugged off Ager's
suggestion that he and his wife
would be "heroes" if they were to
stop the debilitating fight now.
"No way," he said. "I'm not giv-
ing up my daughter."

lie added that he believed Ager
made his decision before the hear-
ings even began.
Faupel leveled charges of social
engineering at Ager, saying he had
awarded custody of the child based
on who he thought could better pro-
vide for her.
Cara Schmidt said she sees
Ager's decision as only a temporary
setback.
"I see our daughter ... coming
home to Iowa in April (after the
Michigan Court of Appeals makes
its decision)," she said.
Many legal options are still avail-
able to both sides and one of the few
things that both parties seemed to
agree on is that this decision is only
the latest skirmish in a prolonged
and devastating war.
Faupel said she is certain that the
Schmidts will win their appeal in
Michigan courts, and believes that
the DeBoers will then attempt to

take the case to the U.S. Supreme
Court.
A potential problem in bringing
the case before the high court is the
fact that the courts in Iowa were rul-
ing on a different issue than the one
in Ann Arbor.

'Would you give up
your daughter? ... No
way. I'm not giving
up my daughter.'
- Daniel Schmidt
biological father
The Iowa courts were asked to
decide if Daniel Schmidt had
parental rights to his own daughter,
since he had played no role in giving
the child up for adoption. They con-

cluded that he did indeed have rights
to the child and awarded him cus-
tody based on this decision.
The Ann Arbor court, however,
was asked to determine the best in-
terests of the child, something the
Iowa courts had not been asked to
consider. Ager decided that, al-
though the Schmidts had a viable
claim to the child, the girl's best in-
terests lay in remaining with the
DeBoers.
The Michigan Court of Appeals
is expected to make a decision by
April 6 as to whether Ager acted ap-
propriately in agreeing to hear the
case.
Both couples seem ready to carry
their fight to the highest court avail-
able, the U.S. Supreme Court.
However, both acknowledge that
money has been and will continue to
be a serious concern, with legal fees
on both sides reaching thousands of

will be handed outto passersby.
"TAs need to get organized, mo-
tivated, and active ... and let the
administration know this is some-
thing we're not willing to agree on,"
Curtiss said.
He added that there will be a
GEO membership meeting Tuesday
evening at Rackham Amphitheater
to vote on any possible action the
union may take.

Continued from page 1
"I'm trying to work with them to
help with the idea of institutional
transformation since I've spent the
last years here working onrthat,"
Moody said. "Whatever we do in
South Africa we ought to be learning
something back here. We have as
much to learn as we have to give."
Moody said he has a number'of
plans for the South Africa Initiative
including:
forming student and faculty
exchanges with South African
universities;
conducting research between
the University and various South
African universities;
using technology to create bet-
ter communication between universi-
ties in the two countries;
developing better relations
with South African students on
campus;
eventually developing a satel-
lite office in South Africa for the
Initiative; and,
creating an institution or center
on campus for the Initiative.
Although he is busy looking
ahead, Moody said he is pleased
with his efforts as vice provost.
"I think we've done some things
to help change expectations,"
Moody said. "People thought stu-
dents of color couldn't cut it, trut 68
percent of students of . or
graduate."
Moody said enrollment of stu-
dents of color increased from 13
percent to 22 percent during his
tenure as Vice Provost for Minority
Affairs.
He added that he is also pleased
with increases in faculty of color, as
well as the numerous activities
planned for events such as Martin
Luther King Day, Chicano History
Week and Latino History Heritage
Month.
Moody said when he leaves his
current position, he will not involve
himself with the work of the new
Vice Provost for Minority Affairs.
"When I step down from any job,
I leave it. I'm not going to be look-
ing over people's shoulders," Moody
said. "People shouldn't be looking
for another Charles Moody. This
person has to come and do his or her

thing and work and operate in a style
that's comfortable to them."
Community support is vital to his
successor's ability to face the chal-
lenges ahead, Moody said.
"It's not just the politics and pro-
cedures but the informal ways of do-
ing business (that must be,
changed)," Moody said. "We've got
to deal with how the system and
day-to-day opportunities of the
University do things without think-
ing. We're trying to change the cor-
porate culture so the notion of justice
and fairness become institutionalized

OVERSEAS

dent from Indonesia, said he deals
with confusion almost every time he
meets someone new.
"Everybody always asks me why
I only have one name. They ask my
first name, then they ask my last
name and they are always confused,"
Sanjoya said.
But sometimes the difference in
culture is not so innocent.
While Kanako Ohara, an LSA
senior from Japan, said the United
States does offer more opportunity
for everyone, she added that she has
heard of incidents of foreigner-
bashing.
"I heard from one of my friends
from Hawaii that she was crossing
the Diag and people screamed at her
to go back to the country she came
from. But this was at the time of
Japan-bashing," .he said.
Patrick Whittaker, an LSA junior
who immigrated from England, ex-
pressed disappointment not with
American treatment of foreign stu-
dents, but with their general knowl-

and people don't have to think
about it."
Moody said the position of Vice
Provost for Minority Affairs is diffi-
cult but gratifying.
"When I took this job I said it
didn't get messed up by one person
and it's not going to get straightened
out by one person," Moody said.
"People might not say it's any better
when I leave or any worse when I
leave but I'll be damned if they can
say it's the same. This isn't the same
place it was six years ago."
edge of foreign affairs.
"I have found the students here to
be somewhat lacking in knowledge
in anything outside of their own
country. I think I knew more about
America when I was in England than
I do now," Whittaker added.
Yet Ohara counters modern per-
ceptions by saying she believes U.S.
college students study much more
than those in Japan. She said it is
difficult to get into a college in
Japan, but also very rare to fail out.
"As far as I understand, college
students in Japan don't really study
unless they are in a specialty like
engineering. I have seen my two
brothers go through college and they
just party," Ohara said. "Here I have
to study all the time."
Whittaker said he feels the weight
of other restrictions.
"I lost all of my freedoms when I
came here," he said. "I can't drink,
and I can't walk anywhere because

Yet, aside from the difficulties,
most of the students agreed the posi-
tive aspects far outweighed the nega-
tive ones.
