"A lot of time and effort went into
the development of this new program
and I think that effort will be well-
received," Ferber said.
Mary Ann Busfield, executive sec-
retary to Nissen, said that in the years
she has been involved with hearing
cases of academic dishonesty, stu-
dents have shown little tolerance for
those who cheat.
"It's the students who are argu-

said. "It's an interesting phenom-
LSA sophomore Jonathan
Stillman said students caught cheat-
ing should at least receive a failing
grade in the class. "I'm going to
achieve my grades honestly through
hard work," he said.
"There's no reason the mean should
be affected by dishonesty," Stillman
said about grades based on a curve.
LSA senior Meghan Kolassa said
she was concerned about students
who cheat to better their chances of
getting into medical and graduate
"If they come out looking better
than I do because they're cheating,
then I'll be upset," she said.
Nissen said the new policy has
been successful thus far. He added it

But state Rep. Lingg Brewer (D-

parison of the University to Jefferson's
"What Hamilton said about
Jefferson was he loved the masses
because he had nothing to do with
them. Iam wondering if it is the same
for Michigan," Brewer'said.
The lawmakers expressed concern
over the University's number of non-
residents rising above 30 percent.
Duderstadt said 67 percent of the
University's students are residents.
"We really do not want our insti-
tutions that are publicly supported to
go beyond 30 percent," said state Rep.
Jim McBride (R-Holland). The state

Duderstadt assured committee

are fully covered by tuition and
McPherson said 90 percent of
Michigan State's students are from

During the testimony, McPherson

University's economic impact. He
said that from the state's $280million
appropriation, the University brings
$2.5 billion directly to the state
economy. "The activities of the Uni-

stimulating industrial activity in the
state," he said.
GOP may punish Hatfield for vote
WASHINGTON - Sen. Mark O. Hatfield (R-Ore.), m 6
who was under intense Republican pressure to switch his
vote last week in order to save the balanced-budget
amendment, offered to resign from the Senate before the
vote so the party could win without him, Majority Leader
Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said yesterday.
Dole rejected the extraordinary offer, and the amend-t :
ment failed for lack of one vote - a loss so upsetting to
some Republicans that they are talking about trying to
strip Hatfield of his chairmanship of the powerful Appro-
priations Committee, sources said.
In answer to questions on CBS's "Face the Nation," Dole said he had been
told by at least one senator that "there's a lot of frustration," especially among
newer members, and that some of them will be writing him early this week to
propose a course of action.
Dole criticized Hatfield, but declined to say whether he would support
sanctions against his longtime friend. "I haven't made that judgment," he said.

SELMA, Ala. - Two of the men
who led the "Bloody Sunday" voting-
rights march 30 years ago received
the keys to the city yesterday from the
mayor - then a segregationist, now
an ally of Blacks.
It was on March 7, 1965, that
white lawmen beat and gassed hun-
dreds of marchers trying to cross
Edmund Pettus Bridge. Footage of
the beatings ran on national televi-
sion, sparking outrage and leading to
passage of the landmark Voting Rights
Act, which outlawed literacy tests in
many Southern states.
Two weeks later, Martin Luther
King Jr. led an even bigger march all
the way to the steps of the state Capi-
tol in Montgomery.
A cold rain fell yesterday on dem-
onstrators gathered outside the Na-
tional Voting Rights Institute as they
prepared to march once again across
the bridge named for a Confederate
general. The group also planned to
make the 54-mile journey to Mont-
gomery for a rally on Saturday.
Jesse Jackson and U.S.Reps. John
Lewis and Cynthia McKinney, Geor-
gia Democrats, joined in ceremonies
at the Brown Chapel AME Church,
launching site of the first march.
Cancer drug being
used for abortions
A drug developed to cure cancer
may become an important weapon for
abortion-rights advocates fighting to
keep abortion a viable alternative.
A New York obstetrician-gyne-
cologist declared last fall that he had
used methotrexate, which works by
attacking rapidly growing cells, in
conjunction with misoprostol to per
form 126 abortions.
Methotrexate has been used for 41
years in the treatment of various can-
cers. Now some doctors are using it
for abortions, and several trials in-
volving hundreds of women are ei-
