LANSING (AP) - In his latest
political advertisement, Democrat
Howard Wolpe puts his mug close to
the camera and suggests Gov. John
Engler will try to "mug" him in this
fall's gubernatorial campaign.
"Take a good look at this face,"
&olpe says. "Because John Engler is
na try to bash it in."
Wolpe campaign manager Ken
Brock said yesterday the ad is an
effort to contrast Engler's style with
Wolpe's. "John Engler's got a divi-
sive leadership style. Howard believes
that we can work collectively to solve
problems in the state," he said.
2 Respirators, artificial

By COREY HILL

Death is a complex and intriguing
e, but University Prof. Carl Cohen
is among many in the philosophical
world who searches for solutions.
"Death is a conscious part of all
our lives," Cohen said in a presenta-
tion yesterday called "What is Death."
Also a member of the University
Hospitals Medical Ethics Commit-
tee, Cohen said,"There are certain
things about death which medical sci-
e cannot resolve."
Over the last 15 years, science and
technology have added new dimen-
sions to death. The development and
extensive use of devices such as res-
pirators and artificial organs have pro-
longed human life to the benefit of the
direct recipients and their families
and friends, Cohen said.
Former President Jimmy Carter
appointed the President's Commis-
for the Study of Ethical Prob-
lems in Medicine to establish com-
mon guidelines for death. These
guides were later adopted 47 states.
The commission defined death as
an individual who has sustained irre-
versible damage to the brain stem.
Death also is extended to the cessa-
tion of respiration and cerebral func-
tion. Physicians often determined
out extensive testing, however,
commission's guidelines are de-
signed to address ethical and profes-
sional responsibilities in complex situ-
"I think everyone who is alive
should appreciate being alive," said
ngie Miller, a first-year Medical
student. "Death is something that
should be addressed on a personal
level, not a collective one."
*Cohen said we should not believe
eath is a series of actions. Some
umans continue to grapple with ques-
ion of when life begins, which adds
o the mystery of death. "Once you
e dead, you are dead ... D-E-A-D
.. dead," Cohen said.
Science's innovation helped to
onfuse some physicians and patients,
owever, death remains a one-time
nt. "Death is a philosophical ques-
n as well as a scientific one," said
cott Blakely, a University employee.

es another attack against Engler in advertisement
But Engler said Democrats are
doing the bashing. "I think that's more
hypocrisy coming out of Howard
Wolpe," he said. "This is the man
whose campaign has been regularly
taking whacks at me."
The governor said Wolpe said he
would not beat up on him, yet the
Democratic Party has aired ads at-
tacking Engler for his treatment of the
mentally ill in closing Detroit's
And the Democratic convention
was a "sea of bashing," he said.
"It's very hypocritical for Con-
gressman Wolpe. I think that's prob-
'We don't have to bash (Wolpe). All we have to
do is talk about his record.'
- Gov. John Engler
ably the way the game is played in
Washington, say one thing and do
something else. We don't have to
bash. All we have to do is talk about
his record," Engler said.
Brock said the GOP struck first,
with ads attacking Wolpe as a tax-
and-spend liberal immediately after
his Aug. 2 primary victory. "They've
already attempted to bash his face in,"
The Wolpe ad features jerky
cutaways designed to make it stand
out from typical political ads flood-
ing the airwaves right now. The black
and white format underscores the cam-
paign theme of "clear choices" be-
tween Wolpe and Engler.
After suggesting Engler will try to
make him appear to be the bad guy,
Wolpe said he will offer straight talk
on the issues this fall.
The ad began airing Tuesday state-
wide. Brock said the campaign spent
$100,000 on television time.
Meanwhile, the campaigns dueled
again over crime. Wolpe's running
mate, state Sen. Debbie Stabenow,
claimed the escape of 10 inmates from
Detroit's Ryan Correctional Facility
was part of a pattern of escapes show-
ing Engler had mismanaged state pris-
Stabenow said it was one of 13
escapes, including one Tuesday night
from the Michigan Training Unit, a
medium-security prison in lonia, on
She said the Ionia prison was un-
derstaffed as much as 25 percent, yet
the department was turning back $25
million unspent to the state this year.
Department spokesman Warren
Williams claimed escapes declined
70 percent under Engler. All the guard
towers at the Ionia facility didn't have
to be staffed because of the addition
of motion detectors to the fence, he
"All the positions that were sup-
posed to be staffed last night were in
fact staffed," Williams said.

John Lee, an LSA senior, says the
success of the new restaurant depends
entirely upon how good the food is.

Document service still fighting fees
By ANDREW TAYLOR
Daily Staff Reporter
Robin Hood has been beaten back,
but will not give up the fight.
Michigan Document Services
(MDS), which publishes coursepacks
for University classes, will continue
its struggle to eliminate royalty costs
despite an adverse court ruling.
Three publishing companies sued
MDS in February last year for not
paying royalties to the copyright hold-
ers. This summer, the judge fined
MDS $30,000 plus attorney fees.
MDS maintains royalties should
not be charged on coursepacks since
they are educational material.
"We have filed an appeal," said
Jim Smith, owner of MDS.
Smith said the legal briefs are due
in mid-October, at which point a new
court date will be set.
Smith said he has spent about
$250,000 on the case already.
Meanwhile, MDS has experienced
more problems than usual in complet-
ing students' coursepacks on time this
Visiting Communication Prof.
Clark Hubbard said coursepack de-
lays have been a burden for his stu-
