Summer heat wave hits art air
By ADELE PRINCE
Yvonne Zimmerman dangles her feet inthe fountain next to
the Union and says, she'd dunk her head in too if she could.
She is one of the thousands of art fair goers trying to stay
calm, cool, and collected when the weather makes everyone
look a little unpressed.
ALTHOUGH the 14-day-old heat wave broke slightly
yesterday, people should be seeking out fans, shade, and air-
conditioned buildings today, as the temperature is expected
to reach 90 degrees.
A dogged tour of every booth is one of the worst ap-
proaches to take in the fair, according to Red Cross officials,
who suggest rest and drinking many fluids.
"Let your sensations be your guide," suggets Ed Pope, an
emergency medical technician for Red Cross.
THAT DOESN'T mean that all desires should be followed,
though. A cold beer is "probably one of the worst things you
could drink," because it absorbs water in your system, ac-
cording to Deborah Bailey, another Red Cross worker. She
suggests water and iced tea as two of the best choices to in-
crease body fluids. Potato chips and pretzels are recommen-
ded snacks because of their high salt content.
The two chief dangers in this weather are heat exhaustion
and stroke. Forty-seven deaths have been blamed on the heat
nationwide, and although no deaths have occurred in Ann
Arbor, several people have collapsed from the heat.
Sore leg and arm muscles, light-headedness, profuse
sweating, and nausea are indications that exhaustion and
stroke may be on the way, according to Red Cross worker Ed
To avoid the hot, packed sidewalks, Eastern Michigan
University student Veronica Slintak seeks out the air-
conditioned comfort of the art museum. "It's too crowded out
there," she explained.
But all the ice cream, fans, and cold pop are only a tem-
porary relief until the temperature drops. As Stephanie
Sauer, a lifeguard at Fuller Pool put it, "You just kind of sit
up there and sweat."

list of prospective deans, said Robin
Jacoby, assistant to Frye.
"VICE PRESIDENT Frye ... felt
that affirmative action considerations
had not been given full consideration,"
Jacoby said. "(Frye) felt that was an
omission in the original procedure."
But Bates said he is being considered
to replace Stark because one of the
candidates, Education School Prof.
William Cave, dropped out.
The education school, which enrolls
more black students than any school on
campus, is slated for a 40 percent
budget cut under the University's
proposed five-year plan to reallocate
$20 million into "high priority" areas.
IF THE PROPOSED deep cuts go in-
to effect, the University's minority
enrollment could drop by 3 percent
eliminating nearly 70 black students,
according to a recent report by the
Council for Minority Concerns.
Frye's decision last month to use a
University-wide search instead of a
national search to find a new dean was
controversial among education school
