Ford and the University have a
continuing educational exchange
through joint research projects, in-
ternships and sabbaticals at Ford for
University professors and work-leave
programs offering Ford engineers an
opportunity to study new and devel-
oping technologies at the University.
"The location of campus is close
to a lot of Ford operations. It makes it
easy to set up programs where both
can benefit," Culver said.
Ford's contribution also will in-
clude funds to the Dearborn campus
to support the College of Eng-
ineering's Center for Education and
Practice and the renovation of the
Fairlane Mansion. The Center for
Education and Practice, which was
established with a $160,000 grant
from Ford in 1992, combines class-
rooms and laboratory study.
For the past three years, Ford has
been the top corporate recruiter at
both the College of Engineering and
the Business School. In 1993, Ford
hired 200 University graduates.
"We have over 2,500 U-M alumni
employed by Ford. No other school is
that big (at Ford)," Culver said.
Ford's last major gift to the Uni-
versity was a five-year $2.5 million
grant in 1989 to promote manufactur-
ing studies in the College of Engi-
ak AtIj 55w*,AeJ

ACSI provides a different ap-
proach than current economic indica-
tors, including the CPI. The big dif-
ference is that ACSI focuses on qual-
ity, not just productivity.
The the new indicator is based on a
simple premise: Neither productivity
nor the CPI can be calibrated accurately
without taking quality into account.
Fornell said scores are affected in
part by the degree of service needed
after a product is purchased.
"The more service that is required,
thelowerthe satisfaction index," Fornell
said. Meats and produce, for example,
require less service than a dishwasher.
Goods and services are measured
by customer satisfaction as well as
production. About 50,000 telephone
interviews were conducted to collect
information for the index. Customers
were asked their perception of and
willingness to pay for the quality of a
number of goods.
Separate ACSIreports areproduced
for seven sectors of the economy: manu-
facturing nondurables; manufacturing
durables; transportation, communica-
tions and utilities; retail; finance and
insurance; and services and public ad-
ministration and government.
Forty industries, several key gov-
ernment agencies and more than 200
companies are scored quarterly within
these seven sectors.
The index is sponsored by the
American Society of Quality Control
and several companies.

Supporters of the Ann Arbor Ten-
ants' Union say they will continue to
press for additional funds from the
Michigan Student Assembly, despite
another setback last night.
Tenants' union supporters on the
assembly moved to transfer $3,000
from the capital goods reserve fund to
the AATU line-item in the surplus
and reserve budget. The motion would
have given AATU a total of $5,000.
This amount falls $1,500 short of the
amount the tenants' union had most
The motion failed, 13-9. To pass,
the motion to reopen an approved
budget would have needed 21 affir-
mative votes - the support of half of
the voting members on the assembly.
LSA Rep. Jonathan Freeman said
supporters will continue to fight for
"It's still worth it because AATU' s
got to be able to function," he said. "If
they have to go to students for fund-
ing, it's almost against the spirit of the
group. It was founded as a group for
students, to give free services to std-
dents. The work they do is definitely
important and definitely worthwhile."
Freeman said AATU supporters
were attempting to compromise when
they reduced the amount of funding
they requested for AATU.
AATU backers continue bid for funds.
ROCKING AND ROLLING
MSA Vice President Jacob Stern
said he opposes any transfer of funds
from the capital goods fund.
Stern said AATU should be funded
through the assembly's Budget Pri-
orities Committee (BPC), which allo-
cates funds to student groups.
"I believe last year the most any
student group got in funding (from th
BPC) was $1,000, but I don't see wh
AATU wouldn't be able to get $2,500,
maybe even $3,000. There are also tons
of other funding sources on campus,"
Stern said, naming the LSA Student
Government and the RackhamStudent
Government, among others.
Freeman said AATU funding will be
on the agenda of next Tuesday's meeting.

witnesses - was to take place at 7 a.m.
EDT at the newly asphalted Negev desert
outpost of Wadi Arava, about 2 miles
north of Israel's resort city of Eilat and
Jordan's port city of Aqaba.
The normally taciturn 72-year-old
general, who was chief of staff in the
1967 Six-Day War, when Israel seized
more than one-tenth of Jordan's terri-
tory, the area now known as the West
Bank, referred to the recent wave of
attacks that have blunted Israel's ini-
tial delight with the Jordanian peace.
Jordan's British-educated King
Hussein predicted in an interview with
the Israeli newspaper Yedioth
Ahronoth that the treaty will bring a
"very warm peace." Until a few weeks
ago, the doors to the king's palace were
shut to any Israeli journalist. It is only in
the past 20 years that non-Muslim for-
eigners no longer had to show a baptis-
mal certificate, proving they were not
Jewish, to obtain a Jordanian visa.
The Israeli right-wing opposition
generally has endorsed peace with Jor-
dan, although settlers denounced it as a
"smoke screen" for the government's
controversial peace moves with the Pal-
estine Liberation Organization.
But in Jordan, Islamic fundamen-
talists and leftists in the 80-seat Par-
liament have vowed to oppose the
treaty when it comes up for ratifica-
tion in a few days.
Jones renews proposal to
settle sex suit with Clinton
The Baltimore Sun
WASHINGTON - The woman
who is suing President Clinton, claim-
ing he made unwanted sexual ad-
vances toward her in 1991, moved
yesterday to put new pressure on him
to settle the case out of court.
PaulaJones, a former Arkansas state
employee, said at a news conference
here that "all I want is to reclaim my
good name from Bill Clinton, the only
person in the world who can do that."
Gilbert K. Davis, one of her attor-
neys, told reporters a proposal to settle
the case "is still on the table," even
though two prior efforts to reach a
settlement have failed. Jones, ho
added, seeks no money, only "a simple
statement" from the president that an
incident occurred, and an apology.
In May, Jones sued the president.,
seeking $700,000 in damages for al-
legedly exposing himself to her in a
Little Rock hotel room in 1991.
Clinton denies that the incident ever
Simpson asks judge to remove
cameras from DNA hearing
Los Angeles Times
LOS ANGELES - O.J.
Simpson's lawyers have asked that
television cameras be excluded from
a crucial hearing on the admissibility
of DNA evidence so that jurors in his
double-murder case will not be ex-
posed to potentially prejudicial infor-
mation, according to a letter sent to
Judge Lance A. Ito.
"If the courtroom camera is elimi-
nated during the (DNA) hearing, it
will reduce the extent of media satu-
ration while thejury panel is at
risk,"Simpson attorney Peter J.
Neufeld said in a letter sent to Ito last
week. In addition, Neufeld suggested
that the lawyers for both sides avoid
any discussion of the DNA test re
sults during the hearing, which is no
scheduled to begin until after a jury
has been selected.
DNA evidence is expected to play
a key role in the prosecution case
against Simpson, the former football
hero who has pleaded not guilty to the
June 12 killings of his former wife,
Nicole Brown Simpson, andherfriend.
