(Continued from Page 1)
Under the plan, 1 billion acres off the
entire U.S. coast will be considered for
leasing, compared to an estimated 55
million acres under the Carter
program. Interior Department of-
ficials said, however, that they expec-
ted the actual amount of land leased to
be only a "small percentage" of the 1
billion acres.
However, they predicted tht percen-
tage would still be larger than under the
Carter offerings since Watt's plan of-
fers more highly desirable areas off
Alaska that have not been drilled before
and makes those so-called "frontier
areas" available sooner than the Carter
plan.
WATT DID make some changes

ILIR to release labor study

losing work are more prone to fall apart
emotionally under unemployment,"
Ferman said.
The study identified four times when
stress peaks for an unemployed person:
anticipation time (when the worker
thinks he will lose his job), actual job
loss, the point when benefits and
savings are exhausted, and intensive
job-hunting which occurs roughly one
year after unemployment.
"The last period is by far the worst,"
he said. "The person panics and will
take any job he or she can get his or her
hands on. We found the highest number
of mental illnesses and emotional
problems during this time."
FERMAN ALSO said programs that
aid the unemployed, although "ex-
tremely important," are misguided in
terms of the time they are offered.
"Unemployment insurance runs out
after a year, and support from the
government ends, too. All social sup-
port programs are geared to that time
when the person loses his job, and
we've found that's when they need help
least," he said.
Programs are needed in long-term
counseling and long-run income
assistance, Ferman said.
THE STUDY noted three basic routes
the unemployed take: finding work
soon after losing a job, dropping out of
the work force, or constantly gaining
and losing jobs. The last group is by far
the worst off mentally and physically,

according to Ferman.
"Strangely enough, those people who
never return to work are better off than
those who 'ride the rollercoaster,'
taking many jobs for short periods of
time," he said.
He also said many unemployed go
through a "fantasy year" after losing
their jobs.
"FOR MANY there's no sense of
panic. They have their savings and
unemployment insurance for about a
year, and they go through a year of
denial that anything happened. They
don't want to admit that they are
unemployed," Ferman explained.
Ferman's advice to the unemployed
was to "prepare before it happens.
"Other than that, stay attached to
people. We found that people who were
withdrawn didn't do so well," he said.
"Also, income assistance programs are
extremely important. Unemployment
insurance is an absolute necessity."
Ferman found irony in the timing of
the report's release and the fact that
ILIR currently is undergoing a
budgetary review for budget cuts or
possible closure.
"It's funny," he said. "We're such
experts on unemployment, and we
might be in that boat ourselves."
The report has been sent to the
National Institute for Mental Health,
where it will be used as a basis for a
congressional recommendation regar-
ding unemployment problems.

Placement Office. Parents also sample
some informal college activities with a
trip to the University Club's happy
hour.
DURING THE evening, parents
gather to discuss various topics such as
drugs, sex, alcohol, grades, and Greek
life, said Steve Alderman, a recent
graduate and a program coordinator.
The discussions are kept on a very in-
formal level, he said, adding, "We feel
we don't want any questions to go unan-
swered."
Many participants praised the
program, one of the most in-depth
parent orientations in the country.
"I THOUGHT it was terrific. Every
session I attended I thought there was
something valuable to be learned," said
Carlene Bigelow, an Ann Arbor
resident.

Ruth Waldorn, a former University
student, said she hadn't planned to at-
tend the session, but was glad she
changed her mind.
"Now I can be more supportive when
my son comes home. We can share our
feelings together," she said.
Roughly 1,400 parents are expected to
attend this year's orientation, which
runs in 32 sessions from June to August.
Perigo said evaluations of the
program show that "99 percent" of the
parents leave satisfied.
One parent from East Brunswick,
N.J., said she had acquired a new per-
spective from the program.
"When we came here yesterday we
thought it (the University) was very big
and impersonal," she said. "Today we
think it's beautiful. It's not just a place
you send a check to every month."
