SALARIES
Continued from Page 1A
with what will keep an excellent faculty."
Physiology Prof. Louis D'Alecy, who
chairs the faculty's governing body, said
the faculty's increase is a way to correct
past "inappropriate preferences."
),The administrators were getting
increases when faculty was not getting
increases," D'Alecy said. "That was
inappropriate. They are trying now to
get into a more equitable pattern."
Although the reported salaries of sev-
erl Medical School faculty appeared to
jump as much as 30 percent, the increas-
es represent a new calculation system
and not merit-based increases.
In the past, the reported salaries only
included Medical faculty's base
salaries, which excluded some of the
money earned through the academic
portions of their work, said Ken Trester,
director of planning and marketing for
the University's Health System. But a
new budgeting system includes these
portions in the base salary.
'On average, a Medical School facul-

ty receivedan increase of less than 5 per-
cent ... whereas some of these changes
may reflect larger increases," Trester
said.
Vice President for University
Relations Walter Harrison said this
year's salary increases represent healthy
appropriations from the state.
"In the past year, the state legisla-
ture and governor have made a very
thoughtful commitment to higher
education," Harrison said.
Harrison said teaching ability is one
of the main criteria for determining
merit-based salary increases.
Yet some of the University's most
revered teachers ranked low on the salary
list. Biology lecturer Eric Mann, who
received last year's Golden Apple award
for outstanding teaching on the under-
graduate level, received a 5 percent
increase that raised his salary to $48,285.
Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr
received a 3.5-percent increase to earn
$266,512. Hockey coach Red Berenson's
salary increased 3.5 percent, to $103,500.

COLLOQUIUM
Continued from Page IA
"That's something they're not going
to be able to get from a panel with no
interaction at depth."
in addition to the larger discussion
and Q & A periods, the audience of at
least 700 people broke into smaller
groups to more comprehensively exam-
ine various areas, including
"Affirmative Action and Higher
Education Policy" and "Native
American Law," and later reconvened
to summarize each groups' discussions.
Chuck D, who facilitated the
group that focused on the entertain-
ment industry's influences and other
related issues, said large corpora-
tions constantly barrage people with
"fantasy world" projections, there-
fore skewing the messages received
in the communities.
Instead of emphasizing individuals in
their immediate communities who strive
to make positive changes, developing
children form bonds with these "fantasy"
images, Chuck D said.

Colloquium facilitator and
Harvard Law Prof. Charles Ogletree
created a hypothetical situation
depicting Bob, a white working-
class father, who questioned his
future access to job opportunities
and his child's access to education.
Ogletree said people shouldn't feel
discouraged by any current backlash
against affirmative action because
the system is part of a progressive
process.
"I think we have to take some joy
in struggle because life is struggle
and we have to be proud that we're
on the right side of the struggle,"
Ogletree said.
Education first-year student Steve
Hernandez, a member of the MLK Day
planning committee, said the most pro-
ductive use of the colloquium is as a
catalyst.
"I just don't want this to be the
experience," Hernandez said. "The
experience is what people do after
they leave," which may not be
noticed for one week, for one year or
for 10 years.

Opo AROUND THEN
College students raped in Guatemala
SANTA LUCIA COTZUMALGUAPA, Guatemala -- Guatemalan security
forces arrested two suspects and were hunting down five others yesterday after five
American college students were raped in a brazen daylight ambush of their bus.
The rapes and robbery of students and faculty from St. Mary's College in
Maryland, who were on an anthropology tour of Guatemala, have provoked outrage I
in the United States and calls to end surging lawlessness.
Vowing to obtain justice in the case, Interior Minister Rodolfo Mendoza said
yesterday that the two arrested men had provided the names of their accomplices.
"The security forces are trying to capture the other five criminals ... so that they
can face the full force of the law," said Mendoza, who declined to discuss the case
further.
The pink-and-white bus was forced off the highway Friday afternoon into a break
in the green, head-high sugar cane by gunmen riding in two pickup trucks, police said.
The students, 12 women and one man, were returning to Guatemala City after an
educational tour of historic and cultural sites. They were accompanied by two male
faculty members and a female administrator from St. Mary's College, a public, four-
year liberal arts school 70 miles southeast of Washington.
In Washington, President Clinton decried Friday's ambush and said he was con-
fident that Guatemalan authorities will handle the case appropriately.

GOSS
Continued from Page 1A
Goss said the severity of the incidents warranted
such a drastic response as threatening to cancel the
Michigan wrestling program if the NCAA refused to
make changes.
If we could not make the sport safe, we would have
ended the program," Goss said. "They couldn't have
made it safe without the NCAA's cooperation."
Before the NCAA created a level ground for all pro-
grams, Michigan wrestlers may have been at a disad-
vantage because of the rules adopted at the University
weeks after Reese's death. Goss approved similar rec-

ommendations made by the University task force weeks
before the NCAA released its new regulations.
"Of course we went ahead with our own rules and if
we could have wrestled with our own rules, we would
have,"he said. "If we would not have been able to com-
pete, then we would have had to make an alternate deci-
sion."
While the possibility of halting the Michigan wrestling
program has disappeared, Goss said the urgency of mak-
ing long-term changes hasn't dissipated.
"The rules are passed and there are still some other
issues - dehydration and body fat,"Goss said. Today,
"we are going to begin monitoring them."
Goss said those involved in integrating weight-

assessment and monitoring practices will make fur-
ther recommendations to the NCAA for its April
Wrestling Committees meeting.
In addition to implementing effective weight-
assessment and monitoring programs at the
University, the task force on wrestling announced one
further recommendation Thursday.
Task force members strongly encourage the NCAA
to consider changing the number of national weight
classes and the weights they include. Officials said the
weight classes need to be adapted to better accommo-
date wrestlers' body demographics.

FDA warns against
human cloning
WASHINGTON - The Food and
Drug Administration has a warning for
the Chicago physicist who wants to
clone a human: The agency will shut
down anyone who tries without its per-
mission.
Richard Seed's cloning plans have
sparked a public outcry and a race by
Congress and more than a dozen states
to ban cloning. With the FDA filling
what critics had called a regulatory vac-
uum, scientists say lawmakers should
take more time to ensure vaguely word-
ed anti-cloning bills don't also ban life-
saving medical research.
"It's been a public and media assump-
tion that there is nothing on the books
that would even slow or stop Dr. Seed,"
said Carl Feldbaum of the Biotechnology
Industry Organization, which represents
biotechnologists involved in cloning
research. FDA intervention "creates at
least some breathing space."
FDA investigators plan to make clear
to Seed that federal regulations require

that he file for FDA approval to attempt
cloning - permission highly unlikely to
be granted.
"We're not only able to move, we're
prepared to move," said Dr. Michael
Friedman, FDA's acting commissioner,
noting the agency can go to court to stop
unauthorized cloning attempts.
Argiments to begin
in tobacco lawsuit
ST. PAUL, Minn. - After a 3 1/2-
year buildup, the most important trial
in the history of the tobacco industry is
to begin today in St. Paul, Minn.
Attorneys for Minnesota will finally
put before a jury the potentially power-
ful - but still untested - legal theory
that U.S. cigarette makers owe the state
at least $1.7 billion for costs incurred
treating sick smokers. With the possi-
bility of punitive damages and special
antitrust damages, the industry's expo-
sure may be much larger.
If further damaging revelations about
the cigarette companies emerge, it could
result in Congress revising the proposed
national tobacco settlement.

Iraq, U.N. at impasse
as negotiations begin
UNITED NATIONS - Talks in
Baghdad aimed at breaking the dead-
lock regarding U.N. weapons inspec-
tions in Iraq began yesterday with both
sides nailing down long-standing -
and mutually incompatible - bargain-
ing positions.
Richard Butler, the Australian disar-
mament expert who heads the U.N.
inspection program, rejected an ultima-
tum issued Saturday by Iraqi President
Saddam Hussein, who demanded a
deadline for completing the inspection
process.
Meanwhile, a crowd of demonstra-
tors estimated at 1,500 to 5,000 protest-
ed outside U.N. offices in the Iraqi cap-
ital. The government-sanctioned
protest demanded an end to economic
sanctions against Iraq and featured
demonstrators burning replicas of
American flags and carrying coffins
representing children whose deaths
were blamed on the sanctions.
U.N. and American officials have
termed the talks crucial in the latest con-

frontation between Iraq and the West,
which has flared off and on since
October.
The weapons inspections, agreed to
by Iraq after its defeat in the 1991
Persian Gulf War, are intended to
ensure that Hussein's government has
given up its chemical, biological and
nuclear weapons and its long-range
China assures U.S.
of missile sales halt
BEIJING - Defense Secretar
William Cohen said yesterday that he has
won new assurances from top U.S. mili-
tary officials that China has halted sales
of anti-ship cruise missiles to Iran.
Chinese sale of the C-801 and C-802
missiles, which Washington believes
pose a serious threat to shipping in the
Persian Gulf, has been a sore point in
U.S.- China relations.
In a summit with President Clinton
in Washington in late October, Chines
President Jiang Zemin had pledged to
cut off the missile sales.
