conducted in 1991 and 1992, 23.3 per-
cent of all first-year undergraduate
-women at the University were classified
as severe dieters - dieting all the time
with a dysfunctional attitude.
More than 80 percent of first-year
undergraduate women fell into the mid-
le ranges of classification - very con-
erned about dieting behavior.
"The actual act of dieting can
lead to eating disorders," Russell
said.
During winter - a time when it's
harder to be physically active - and as
Valentine's Day looms ahead, women
may focus even more on their bodies,
McKinney said.
While there is a significant number of
men with eating disorders, more than 90
ercent of those with eating disorders
Mre female.

Russell attributed the prevalence
of the problem in women to the idea
that women have historically been
valued only for their bodies or their
beauty.
She added that the changing cultural
roles of women may also have led to
some of the problem.
"Young women are confused -
they're supposed to be beautiful, they're
supposed to be successful, and they're
supposed to be good family people,"
Russell said.
She said men have self-esteem prob-
lems as well, but are more likely to act
out their emotions in aggression or in
heavy drinking.
Bolek said admitting that her eating
behavior was out of control was the first
step to recovery.
The process, however, was difficult
because of the stigma of eating disor-
ders.
"Not only did I feel very alone and

shameful, but it was something that no
one around me ever talked about," she
said.
Following her recovery, Bolek
founded a student group called
Students Promoting Eating
Disorder Education, Awareness,
and Knowledge. SPEAK, a group
of about 30 members, plans to hold
workshops for residence halls and
sororities as well as various events
for National Eating Disorder
Awareness Week, the last week of
February.
The Psychological Clinic's work-
shop is being offered for women, par-
ticularly those in their 20s. It is open to
anyone concerned about the time and
energy they spend thinking about their
weight.
The workshop, which will meet
weekly this semester, begins Feb. 2.
Any information shared by the par-
ticipants will remain confidential.

Warning signs of
eating disorders
Avoiding eating meals or snacks
Categorizing food into "good
foods" and "bad foods"
Calculating the number of fat
grams and calories in each bite
Worrying about body size
Severe weight gain/loss in short
periods of time
Having feelings of isolation,
depression, or irritability
Self-induced vomiting
. Abusing laxatives, diet pills or
diuretics
For help, call Counselingand
Psychological Services at

Service at 764-8320.

NASA

time studying the sun through a new
technologically advanced telescope.
Like Apollo 13, Space Lab I had its
own mechanical obstacles to overcome,
causing the astronauts to re-chart the
entire mission at a lower elevation,
England said.
He added that most of NASA's experi-
ments have been built on college campus-
es and the University has built more than
100 experiments that have flown in space.
Congress' distrust of NASA has aug-
mented the decrease in its budget during
the past 10 years, England said. There
has been a definite shift from pure explo-
ration to benefit-cost ratio and practical
applications in response to the budget
decreases.
NASA generally promises more to
Congress than it can realistically deliver
to receive more funding, England said.
The cost of operating is underestimat-
ed while the performance estimation is
inflated. This adds to the politicians' dis-
trust. "NASA acts as a drag on technolo-
gy because it continues to do what it
knows how to do," England said. He

added that too much of the budget goes
toward merely operating the shuttle, leav-
ing only 10 percent for technology costs.
Universities and industry are leading
the country in technology, leaving NASA
behind, England said. He suggested
NASA find a niche separate from indus-
try instead of competing with them.
A short question and answer period
following the lecture gave students a
chance to ask about leadership problems
in NASA, the hope of political reconcili-
ation with the space program and Sen.
John Glenn (D-Ohio).
Rackham Graduate student Scott
Taylor said he enjoyed the lecture. "I was
interested to hear his opinions ... I think
NASA is in trouble too," Taylor said.
"In my opinion, I was disappointed
in the way NASA handled this,"
England said, referencing Glenn's trip
into space. "They said they were going
to solve gerontology in space." It
should have been made clear that
Glenn's trip was a reward for a national
hero, England said.
The Shipman Society lectures will
address topics of general interest that
reach across departments, Majkrzak
said.

MSA
Continued from Page 1
A clause that called for "an end to police harassment
- including undercover officers - at fraternity par-
ties, house parties and parties at the Michigan Union"
was removed from the resolution by an amendment
from Communications Chair Joe Bernstein.
, ormer Interfraternity Council President Brad
Incman, who originally argued that the resolution "is
not joint to change anything," said after the meeting that
he supports the passing of the amended resolution.

"This is what MSA's stance should be," Holeman
said after learning about the amendments to the resolu-
tion. "The meat of the resolutions are proactive
actions."
MSA Treasurer Bram Elias said passing this resolu-
tion is an important step for the assembly.
"Now the entire student government can pro-actively
deal with AAPD policy," Elias said.
In its most uncontested vote of the night, MSA
passed a resolution with unanimous consent "to advo-
cate and support a strong Code of Conduct for manu-
factures that supply the University of Michigan."

The resolution allows MSA to take a stand on the
issue and offer its advice to University administrators,
Elias said.
Before its meeting, MSA held an open house to
inform interested students about how to get involved in
the assembly.
Bernstein said he is excited about the new faces he
saw at the open house, which attracted about 20 people.
"In the winter, we get a low turnout, but this term it
is higher than we have seen," Bernstein said.
-Robert Gold ,for the Daily, contributed to this
report.
