Faculty hope athletes will tackle new fields of study

By Janet Adamy
Daily Staff Reporter
The University's Division of
Kinesiology traditionally has been over-
populated by athletes - but some fac-
ulty members said they are ready to see
these student athletes study something
outside the science of movement.
"What we've basically found is that
there's a very high concentration of stu-
dent athletes in the Kinesiology depart-
ment;' said Education Prof. Percy Bates.
Bates discussed NCAA accreditation
issues when he addressed the Senate
Assembly at its monthly meeting yester-
day in the Rackham Ampitheater. Bates

is the faculty's representative to the
University's NCAA Athletics
Certification Steering Committee.
At the meeting, he presented six "key
recommendations" that came out of the
Academic Integrity Subcommittee's
self-evaluation - part of the NCAA's
two-part process for accreditation.
Among the subcommittee's major
concerns was the issue of student ath-
letes in the Kinesiology department.
"We've found that there's a view that
that is where they should be and where
they will be successful," Bates said,
adding that this viewpoint limited stu-
dents' academic perspectives.

Other subcommittee objectives
include improving the opportunity for
student athletes to transfer from
Kinesiology to other schools and colleges
and ensure that student athletes under-
stand what admission to Kinesiology
means if it is the applicant's only admis-
sions option at the University.
Other concerns include developing a
plan that would help student athletes
gain admission to the courses they
want, examining training requirements
in the off-season and eliminating
extended travel for training and compe-
tition when it conflicts with the acade-
mic calendar.

Education Prof. Milan Marich said
he is concerned by the lack of counsel--
ing student athletes receive.
"I've worked with some of these kids
that want to get out (of Kinesiology)
and they don't really know how to,"
Marich said. "(Departments) need to
give them some counseling that will
explain their options."
Although the subcommittee is not
required to implement its initiatives
before the University becomes accredit-
ed, Bates said the initiatives will be
worked on during the year.
"When all of this is done, it is my
hope that the committee will go back

and look at each recommendation and
decide the appropriate person or unit in
the University and work with them until
the fruition of it." Bates said.
Chemistry Prof. Thomas Dunn,
chair of the faculty's governing body
and a former collegiate athlete, said
the chance that a student athlete will
be able to earn a living as a profes-
sional athlete is less than one-tenth of
a percent.
"The only way we can help altogeth-
er is to give them something of value so
that if they don't go into athletics, they
have something they can go on with,"
Dunn said.

Eating disorder
week hits campus

By Brian Campbell
Daily Staff Reporter
Many University students suffering
from eating disorders - like anorexia
and bulimia - treat their condition like
a secret. But the planners of Eating
Disorders Awareness week are hoping
to confront these issues out in the open
in the coming days.
Paula Herzog, University nutritional
specialist for Housing, said eating dis-
orders are common at the University.
"It's too prevalent - way too preva-
lent," Herzog said. "Half of all first-
year women students are found to have

"There are a lot of different explana-
tions about how people develop eating
disorders," said Vicki Hayes, a
University psychologist and counselor
at UHS. "I find the reason for develop-
ing them are about as individual as the
person I'm seeing."
Woodruff said young women often
choose to eat poorly because they are
insecure about their appearance, and
adjust their diets because it's something
they can change.
"It's about pressure - it's one thing
they can control," she said
But people suffering from anorex-

significant eat-
ing and body
appearance dis-
orders."

A "Body Image" discussion in the
School of Public Health Building and
an interactive program about treating
eating disorders are planned for
Thursday at the Michigan League.
Devon Woodruff, an Engineering
sophomore and president of Sigma
Kappa sorority, said eating disorders
are not uncommon in the Greek system.
"I would say it's prevalent in a lot of
sororities - it seems like it's big on
campus everywhere," she said.
Many said there are no blanket expla-
nations for the prevalence of eating dis-
orders.

DETROIT (AP) - The city's devel-
opment momentum will be the center-
piece of Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer's
State of the City address tonight, his
spokesperson says.
But Archer, who will deliver his third
annual address, will not gloss over the
challenges ahead, Anthony Neely told
The Detroit News yesterday.
"And he wants to talk about how we
produced the momentum that exists in
the city today, and what's needed to
improve the process of making Detroit
a greater cit,' Neely said. "That would
include increasing private investments,
making our neighborhoods more attrac-
tive and improving city services."
Detroit political analyst Mario

Morrow predicted Archer also will
ask for more volunteerism to bring
economic and social harmony to the
city.
But Morrow and other analysts agree
that Archer has much to boast about his
record in 1996.
Last year's accomplishments include
deals for new Tigers and Lions stadi-
ums, $80 million in development
around Orchestra Hall and the General
Motors Corp. purchase of the
Renaissance Center as its new head-
quarters. Others include the announce-
ment of a Hard Rock Cafe, state-desig-
nated renaissance zones and the possi-
bility of a Detroit Government Center
in the GM building.

Michigan voters authorized three
downtown casinos. Developers plan
subdivisions, condominiums and town
houses around the city.
Some residents would rather Archer
spend more effort on making the city
livable by improving trash pickup and
police service.
Peter Koester, a 38-year-old resident,
said city services are deplorable.
"If you ever try to deal with the
city, it's a nightmare. I have been try-
ing to get a city of Detroit income
tax form mailed to me for three
months. I have no street lights, and I
waited for nine hours for the police
to respond to gunfire in my neigh-
borhood," he said.

secrecy and shame - people often
don't want to talk about it," Hayes
said.
Many young women say they disap-
prove of the recent wave of fashion
advertisements portraying waif-like
models.
"I find it obnoxious," Woodruff said,
"Every single model on TV and in the,
magazines is a twig - I get kind ofsick
when I look at the magazines."
Hayes criticized editors of magazines
such as Cosmopolitan, Glamour and
Vogue.
"I would tell them that if they would
spend as much time, energy and money
advertising how women can be healthy
and happy with who they are instead of
who they should be, that would go a
long way toward solving the problem,"
Hayes said.

Judge says papers guilty
of wronging strikers

/ a ow' o w/f.

DETROIT (AP) -- Four Booth
newspapers unfairly kept striking
Detroit newspaper pressmen from
working as substitutes in their press-
rooms, an administrative law judge has
ruled.
Administrative Law Judge Robert
Schwarzbart upheld a complaint
against The Bay City Times, The Flint
Journal, The Grand Rapids Press and
The Saginaw News.
The complaint was filed by the
Graphic Communications Union
Local 13N and the AFL-CIO, and
supported by the National Labor
Relations Board.
Schwarzbart's order was dated Jan. 22.

"It's a good step in the right direc-
tion," NLRB regional director
William Schaub said yesterday.
"Essentially, these people had
applied for jobs, and the employers
refuse to take them. The judge agreed
with me that the reason these people
were not hired was because they were
striking."
The unions alleged that the news-
papers ordered them not to let strik-
ing pressmen fill in as substitutes
shortly after the strike began July 13,
1995, against the Detroit Free Press,
The Detroit News and their business
and production agency, Detroit
Newspapers Inc.
