Music therapy
treats disorders
University patients are finding
Mozart is more than a great musician
- he can be therapeutic.
Therapists at University Hospi-
*als use music therapy as a tool to treat
psychiatric disorders. Music calms
patients and helps them express their
feelings and creativity.
"I believe we all have parts of
ourselves that are kept tightly behind
locked doors inside of us," Roberta
Wigle, a University Hospitals music
therapist, said in a statement. "We
sometimes have trouble connecting
with that part of our intimate selves.
kut I believe music has the ability to
slip under that door and reach into the
University Hospitals has a desig-
nated music therapy program only in
the psychiatric units, but music
therapy also has been used in pediat-
ric physical rehabilitation; cancer
therapy; transplant and gastrointesti-
*[al units; the chronic pain clinic; and
e neonatal intensive care unit.
MLink, Library of
collaborate on
Internet training
The University's MLink project
and the Library of Michigan have
*ntered into an agreement to work
together on Internet training. More
than 175 public libraries will receive
some level of access to the Internet,
and training centers will open in seven
sites throughout Michigan this year.
Along with Michigan's public li-
braries, the collaboration will pro-
vide hands-on training and materials
to be used by all Michigan libraries.
they also will explore development
of interactive, technology-based
methods for delivering training to the
library community.
The Library of Michigan an-
nounced the funding of seven Internet
Training Centers in 1994. The eight
public library cooperatives receiving
funding to develop these centers also
will be a part of the effort.
Mearborn campus
receives grant
The University's Dearborn cam-
pus is receiving a $450,000 grant from
the National Science Foundation to
support the renovation of mechanical
engineering labs.
The grant will allow the School of
Engineering to expand research and
caching on combustion engines, alter-
native fuels and lightweight materials.
Current laboratories at the
Dearborn's Engineering Laboratory
Building have not been significantly
renovated since 1959.
The renovation plans call for cli-
mate control in the engines and mate-
rials laboratories, and a new gas de-
tection system.
Renovations will begin later this
sear and are expected to be finished
by September 1996.

Advisory comm.
outlines effects of
health care on '

-- ®- -


By Jodi Cohen
Daily Staff Reporter
After examining health care ser-
vices at the University, a health af-
fairs advisory committee report rec-
ommends changes in the administra-
tive structure to meet on-going de-
mands of national health care.
The committee report's purpose is
to educate faculty members about re-
cent changes in national health care
and their impact on the University
Medical Center and its programs.

The Senate
Assembly com-
missioned the re-
port as part of its
continuing discus-
sion on health care
"The report,
at this point, is to
generate faculty
discussion," said
committee mem-
ber Monroe W.
Keyserling. "It is
not yet the inten-
tion to draw any
conclusions, but
we realize they
are issues that

aged care, 40 percent of the budget -
which consists of medical service
plans and fees paid by patients -
may be greatly affected. This places
financial risk on the University.
Additionally, the academic mis-
sions of the schools are at risk be-
cause investigators rely on Medical
Service Plans for their funding.
"Thus, research, including that in
collaboration among the health
schools in the University, can be di-
minished if medical care dollars be-
come squeezed,"
we the report states.
"Many will suf-

ilyn Rosenthal "If M-Care,
Affairs adviser an organization
of the University,
cannot survive
intense economic competition, then
some other health delivery program
must be sought," the report states.
In order to address the challenges
placed on University health care, the
committee is evaluating whether the
current administrative structure as it
relates to the hospitals, Medical
School and all health schools, is the
most effective arrangement.
A "dual system" currently gov-
erns the Medical School. In academic
affairs, the Medical School is respon-
sible to the provost. However, in medi-
cal affairs, the school reports to the
vice provost for health affairs.
The committee proposed either to
have a leader that "bridges the Medi-
cal School and the hospitals" or who
"could oversee all health schools,"
the report states.
"The health advisory committee
focused on the administrative struc-
ture of the University with regard to
the Medical Center. We have not come
to any conclusions about what the
administrative structure should be,"
said committee chair James Sisson.
"Our question is if the current
structure is the optimum for meeting
challenges of the future," he said.

need to be discussed."
One primary concern of the report
is the growth in managed care in aca-
demic medical centers.
"Managed care is spreading quickly
and we have to understand what it is and
the challenges it poses for an academic
medical center," said committee mem-
ber Marilyn Rosenthal.
In capitation, health care provid-
ers take on the insurance risk through
pre-paid HMOs, rather than fee-for-
service, where insurance- companies
take the risk. Patients are inclined to
move toward managed care because
it is often cheaper and more efficient.
"(The Medical Center) also places
a high emphasis on research and edu-
cation. Our care tends to be expen-
sive. We have special pressures on
us," Rosenthal sai'd. "How do we con-
tinue to do those things that society
wants us to do and still compete in a
health care system focused on man-
aged care?"
Capitation will move from com-
prising about 5 percent of the current
medical care in Michigan to about 50
percent or more within the next few
years, the report states.

Lake Superior State students
greet spng, burn snowman
SAULT STE. MARIE (AP) - paper - is based on the Rose Sunday

Get out your sunglasses, rub on some
sunscreen and put on your bathing
suit. It's time to burn the snowman.
Lake Superior State University
planned to greet the first full day of
spring yesterday with its traditional
rite of burning a fake snowman.
The torching of the snowman -
made mostly of straw with a veneer of

Festival in Weinheim-on-the-
Bergstrasse, Germany, where the
mayor burns a snowman in effigy
each year.
Lake Superior students and area
residents were invited to take part in
the ceremony, which also includes
poetry readings. The school has been
holding the ceremony for 25 years.

The Associated Press
On weekend nights, they gather in
Detroit and other midwestern cities,
assembling in abandoned buildings and
warehouses to dance until dawn to bone-
rattling, futuristic "Techno" music.
It's all the rave, a subculture with
a self-proclaimed ethic of "Peace,
Love, Unity and Respect."
The rave movement is years old
with roots in London, but it has man-
aged to remain mostly underground in
the United States. Its subterranean na-
ture makes it almost impossible to track
its spread across the country, but raves
are now common in parts of the Mid-
west, including Detroit.
'U' oficially
From Staff Reports
The University Mentorship Pro-
gram has been officially promoted
from a pilot project to a formally
recognized program, the program's
director, Penni Reed, said Monday.
The program serves to provide a
buddy system for first-year students
by placing them in groups of four
with one upperclass peer mentor and
one faculty mentor. The groups are
primarily assembled according to aca-
demic interests.
Participants met Monday with
University President James J.
Duderstadt at the program's "Meet
the President" event, held in the Mu-
seum of Art. After an introduction
and several brief remarks, Duderstadt
mingled with mentors and mentees.
Also present to meet with students
were Maureen A. Hartford, vice presi-
dent for Students Affairs; Susan
Lipshutz, associate provost; and
Lester Monts, vice provost for aca-
demic and multicultural affairs.
The program, which also gave
groups an opportunity to meet, began
at 5 p.m.

Music defines the rave culture.
and it is bone-jarringly loud and fast
- up to 180 beats per minute. Some
ravers are dubbed "bass-heads" be-
cause they dance next to the 10-foot
stereo speakers in the darkness to feel.
their entire bodies pulse and vibrate.
"The quickness of the beats, the
futuristic electronics and historic sam-
pling creates a blend that just makes
you want to dance." said John Ore. 25.
of Atlanta. "When you feel that music
wash over you, it is that powerful."
Ravers are typically college stu-
dents and young professionals. They
use e-mail and the Internet to spread
news about their parties.
