year.
THE REGENTS COMMENTED little
on the report during the meeting,
saying they hoped the prograps would
see considerable success in the next
academic year.
According to a section of the report
dealing with the Office of Academic
Affairs, that office has established a
staff advisory group on minority
student concerns.
Another concern being addressed by
the advisory group is student attrition.
A Febraury, 1980 report to the Regents
found that 31.4 per cent of the freshmen
enrolling in fall, 1975 were not enrolled
four years later and had the figures tok
be substantially higher for blacks,
Hispanics, and Native Americans.
The following are some of the
approaches to improve student
retention suggested in the report:
" periodic reporting on attrition to
help pinpoint problem areas;
" developing mid-term estimates tok
provide an "early warning system";
and,
" establishing special counseling
services to assist withdrawing

agreed the downed wires were a fire
hazard. "We have to protect the areas
in a situation like that," Lee said, ad-
ding that he received more than 100
"wires down" calls during and after the
storm.
NAPOLEAN SAID SHE believed
Detroit Edison turned on the power
before repairing all the lines because
more customers could get electricity
more quickly that way. "But I still
think they should have been more con-
cerned about the possible safety
hazard," she added.
The financial outcome of the
predicament was not in the Napoleans,
favor. According to Edison officials,
although the company will come at its
own expense to restore electric power,
customers must hire a private elec-
trician at their own expense to hook the
wire back into the box.
"Many peippe don't/understand that

the customer owns everything from
where the wires are installed (at the
edge of their property line) in," ex-
plained Detroit Edison Director of
Customer Services and Marketing Jim
Connelly. "All we own is the circuit box
and everything inside it, and the
meter."
Connelly added that although he was
unfamiliar with the situation the
Napoleans were in, the customer is
usually held responsible for "his"
property.
"We try to restcre customer service in
an expeditious manner, but of course
we want to do it in a safe fashion," said
Connelly.
