least two in the 13th Congressional
District. "I've been taking resumes
by the bushelful," Rivers said.
Rivers probably won't fill her
staffs until early January, she said,
after receiving committee assign-
ments later this month.
"I will put a lot of staff in Michi-
gan," River said. "As an elected offi-
cial, I have always put a lot of stress
on constituent services."
Returning to Michigan next
Wednesday, Rivers will join the lame
duck session of the state Legislature
in Lansing, where the House will take
up the issue of assisted suicide once
again. "I'm still the state rep from
Ann Arbor," she said.
While Rivers prepares for her pro-
motion to national office, her parents,
Bob and Ladeema Carruthers, said
they are not surprised by Lynn's suc-
cess in politics.
"Not if you knew her, no," her
mother said from their winter home in
Mrs. Carruthers added that as a
girl, her daughter "was good at any-
thing she did, and still is."
Rivers' father concurred. "She's
been pretty single-minded about this,"
The family is originally from Au
Gres, a small town on the northern
shore of Saginaw Bay. The Carruthers
still spend their summers in Au Gres,
but now winter in Inglewood.
Au Gres residents are proud that
one of their own has gone so far in
public service, her parents said. Al-
though an infusion of union retirees is
changing the town's politics, Au Gres
residents have traditionally been Re-
publicans, including the Carruthers.
Rivers said of her victory: "They
talk about it, but then they add, 'You
know, she's a Democrat."'
"I'm glad (she won)," Mr.
Carruthers joked, "even though we're
usually on opposite sides of the fence."
Rivers married her high school
sweetheart, Joe, the day after gradua-
tion. They moved to Ann Arbor, and
Rivers eventually received her
bachelor's degree from the Univer-
sity. Rivers has been a state represen-
tative since 1992.

"They don't necessarily try to keep
students here once they get here," she
said. "A lotof students feel unwanted."
Clay said blatant discrimination is
rare, but stereotyping and covert rac-
ism are common on campus.
"I think racism is definitely preva-
lent. It's just more subtle, it gets insti-
tutionalized," she said.
Lisa Quiroga, president of Alianza,
the Latino student alliance, said the
progress of Latinos under the man-
date should not please Duderstadt.
"Duderstadt said he was happy
with the progress of all minorities
other than Blacks. He should have
talked to the community because we
are not happy with it," she said.
Quiroga said Alianza currently is
surveying Latino students about the
environment on campus. She said re-
sults are "overwhelmingly negative."
She said the University needs to
hire more Latino faculty and counse-
lors. "It goes back to having a net-
work of support at the University."
Other student leaders said the lim-
ited number of minority faculty mem-
bers adversely affects the environment
for minority students. Of professors
who are tenured or on the tenure track,
13.1 percent are minorities.
"I'm tired of hearing the same
humdrum Anglo-Saxon, male, patri-
archal perspective," Clay said.
While Black and Latino progress
remain a challenge for the University,
Asian Americans have made large
statistical gains under the mandate.
Eighty-eight percent of Asian
Americans graduate in six years. In
1988, the number of Asian American
and Black students on campus was
equal; today there are 706 more Asian
American students on campus than
Duderstadt attributed the dispar-
ity between Black and Asian Ameri-
can graduation rates to socioeconomic

Vern Terpstra, professor emeritus
of international business, said pro-
tests by Ralph Nader and others who
claim the WTO will allow other coun-
tries to outvote the United States do
not worry him. "The United States is
a big market and that gives us a lot of
influence in international organiza-
tions. It is also possible for the United
States to leave the WTO at any time."
Terpstra calls GATT a "win-win
situation," where all parties signing
the agreement will benefit from
greater exports, higher incomes and
cheaper imports. On the whole, he
predicts it will increase the general
standard of living in all countries.

Moller said he believes that the
average American will benefit from
the GATT treaty and that the claim of
job losses is overstated.
"The reduced tariffs will make
prices decline and the real income of
the American go up," Moller said.
"Industries that will be positively
affected are construction, chemical and
pharmaceutical. In Michigan, Dow and
Upjohn will benefit from GATT."
For the auto industry, Moller said
he predicts only a modest or long-
* term impact. "As tariffs are lowered
elsewhere in the world, the export of
vehicles may be expected to rise."
The Uruguay round of GATT
negiotiations - the most recent -
inhavs for the first time addressed trade
in service, and the agreement includes
rules for services, such as financial
and accounting services, TV, movies
and computer software -areas with
a U.S. comparative advantage.
"GATT will give service compa-
nies in the United States better access
to foreign markets," said Prof. Gunter
Dufey, who instructs on international
business and finance.
"The inclusion of intellectual prop-
erty rights in the GATT is an issue
that has been pushed by the United
States," said Economics and Public
Policy Prof. Robert M. Stern. "Ameri-
can high-technology companies that
have been selling products on foreign
markets have not been guaranteed
protection. Foreign companies have
Continued from page 2.
Meanwhile, Molin's former du-
ties will be diffused within the Office
of University Relations. "We have a
team of people including (Vice Presi-
dent for University Relations Walter
Harrison) and we also have experts,"
said Lisa Baker, associate vice presi-
dent for University relations.
Harrison's office took up the gov-
ernment-relations responsibilities of
Vice President for Government Rela-
tions Richard L. Kennedy after his re-
tirement earlier this year, a move Baker
termed "a natural kind of evolution."
Harrison said he will likely post
the opening for the position sometime
in January and hopes to have a re-
placement in a couple of months.
He said the month of December
will be used to examine the position.
"The first thing I'm going to do is
talk to a lot of people about the sort of
person we ought to be looking for and
see if we're structuring our state rela-
factors. "Most Asian students are com-
ing from affluent families, most
our African American students are
from cities," he said last month.
Edgar Ho, president of the United
Asian American Organizations,
agreed that most Asian Americans on
campus come from affluent families,
but said the University should also
recruit disadvantaged Asian Ameri-
"A lot has to do with the diversity
of the population. The Asian Ameri-
cans on campus are not representative
of the Asian American population in
the United States," he said.
Ho asserted that the University
uses the success of Asian Americans
as an excuse to ignore their needs as a
group. He said stereotypes make it
difficult for Asian Americans students
to get academic support.
"It seems like Asian American
who come here feel isolated from the
rest of the community, particularly in
been able to create similar products at
a cheaper price."
The industries that could be threat-
ened by the GATT are the textile
industries in the Carolinas. These are
industries built around low technoo
ogy, against which most countries
"The presence of apparel, cloth-
ing and footwear industries in the
U.S. economy will be reduced," said
Economics and Public Policy Prof.
Alan V. Deardorff, but he said that the
long-term drop in employment is will
not be big and will be manageable.
Deardorff and Stern estimate th
only 0.2 percent of the work forc
will be shifted into new industries
over the 10-year phase-in of GATT.
"The adjustments are very predict-
able and over a long period of time."
The agreement would give Ameri-
can companies greater access to for-
eign markets, including the Asian mar-
ket, which, according to World Bank
statistics, will dominate business iL
the next century.
Linda Lim, associate professor of
international business, said, "Ameri-
can companies, with emphasis on high
technology, will benefit from this ac-
cess to Asian markets."
The reduction of tariffs will lower
revenues collected by the government,
which was a concern of some lawmak-
ers, butSternpredicts that theincreased
income from exports will compensat,
for that reduction in tariff revenue.
tions approriately," Harrison said.
Molin said he expects his former
position to change with his successor.
"Those positions take on the shape of
the person who is in it," he said.
Molin added that the position
would have likely changed anyway
following the recent elections. "You
have as a result of last month's electioS
a very different government," he said.
"You need to blend the institution's
agenda with the agenda of those in the
state and federal government."
Molin said he will not be involved
in finding a replacement.
"I have long preached the gospel
that when you leave, you leave. You
don't pick your successor, and stuff
like that, because it's just not right.'g
Molin said he was confident he
could make the transition from gov-
ernment relations to athletics. "The
department has been one of the real
assets we had to draw on" when rep-
resenting the University, he said.
Despite his lack of formal experi-
ence in the department, Molin said,
"I've been around athletics all my life."
