spital changes
NEW reorganization plan
r a unique University
i school unit sparked con-
y as several staff mem-
ere either terminated or
for layoff in the wake of a
.shift in philosophy.
General Medicine Unit of
versity's Department of
Medicine will no longer

stress the physician/nurse teams
that made it one of the most
popular clinics among patients,
according to staff members.
Internal Medicine's Am-
bulatory Care Chief, Dr. Jeoffrey
Stross blamed the cutbacks on
the reduction of a major federal
grant because of several
deficiencies within the unit.
The unit's former chief, Dr.
Robert Carpenter, however,
denied that the unit was deficient
and said the real reason for loss
of federal grant money was the
transfer of the unit's pediatric
component to another hospital
division.
Despite assurances from Stross
that the units will continue, staff
members said that Departmental
of Internal Medicine ad-
ministrators are opposed to the
holistic approach to health care
which stressses prevention
rather than the more traditional
diagnosis and treatment of
disease - and are using the
reorganization plan to eliminate
the unit.

ight to discriminate

Nuclear irony
W HILE THOUSANDS were marching and
praying in Hiroshima on the eve of the
anniversary of the world's first atomic bom-
bing, the House of Representatives was voting
down the proposal for a nuclear freeze.
It is a fitting irony that aptly shows how far
the world has come in eliminating the greatest
threat to mankind. After 37 years, the world
still lives with that specter overhead.
Both the anniversary and the rejection of the
nuclear freeze serve as reminders: One tells of
the madness that was, the other of the madness
that is - that after 37 years, more effort is
going into making nuclear bombs more effec-
tive than into eliminating them entirely.
Hiroshima has not been forgotten, nor will it
be. As the city's current mayor puts it,
"Hiroshima is not merely a witness of history.
Hiroshima is an everlasting warning for the
future of mankind."

succumb to such threats for it is
imperative to actively resist
discrimination whenever
possible.
We applaud the courage of
Wayne State for recognizing that
no agency, not even the Army, is
immune from the standards of
non-discriminatory practices.
We hope that Wayne State
University continues its stand
and that it may serve as an
example to other institutions
which currently allow the Army
and other discriminatory em-
ployers to actively recruit its
students.
