the future students should not come any
earlier than 15 minutes before their
assigned registration time.
The new CRISP office, 300-600 square
feet smaller than the current office, will
feature:
" new furniture designed for com-
puter terminals and operators,
" a small lounge for CRISP staff,
" a computerized climate control
board, which regulates the humidity as
well as the temperature,
" new parabolic lights which cast a
circle of light and create less glare on
the computer screens,
" "Power Poles" which carry elec-
tricity wired above the ceiling to outlets
on the walls and floors, and
" new computer equipment, car-
peting, and paint.
Students will enter the new facility
through the hallway at the bottom of the
stairs from the main lobby of Angell
Hall.
"Construction is scheduled to be
completed by the first of August, so

CRISP should be in business by the end
of August," said Janveja.
The move will take a great deal of
coordination and timing.
"If they don't move on time, then
scheduling problems (for other depar-
tmental moves) start to crop up," said
Bill Dergis, assistant director of the
University's planning office.
CRISP is vacating Lorch Hall so that
construction can begin there on the new
home of the Economics Department.
Those renovations are expected to take
up to two years, Dergis said.
The Computer and Communications
Science Department recently left the
Angell Hall basement for a new home in
East Engineering.
If complications arise and the new
facility for CRISP isn't ready by mid-
August, Karunas said, the CRISP move
will be postponed until after the fall
drop/add period. "There's no way we
could move in the middle of that busy
period," he said. "That would be sheer
chaos."

Eclipse is safely watched

commented, "It just shows you how lit-
tle sun it takes to make a lot of light."

Jim Loudon, the staff astronomer for
the University's Exhibit Museum, had
.suggested an interesting thing to notice
during an eclipse. The spots of light in a
tree's shadow are circular (on a typical
day) because the spaces between the
leaves cast an image of the sun onto the
ground in the same way that a pinhole in
cardboard does. During an eclipse,
however, the light is crescent-shaped
because it's an image of the eclipse.
The trees on the Diag, true to
Loudon's "law," had semi-circles of
light in their shadows. The only other
thing that seemed out of the ordinary
Wednesday on the Diag was the
peacefulness.

breaks to students, according to
spokeswoman Nancy Rumple, but Hud-
son's credit supervisor Robert Kramb
said his company has recently launched
a plan giving special consideration to
students who apply for credit. The
company requires the applicant to have
two bank cards and some other form of
credit - such as a loan.

has several department store cards,
but she would rather use cash because
she wants to have more control over her
finances. "I only use my credit cards
when I'm desperate," she said.
Credit cards can also be helpful to
students as identification for check
cashing, but some students hesitate to
apply for them.
"The only plastic money I have is my
U of M ID card," said art student Bar-
bara Cotterall, who has received many
applications for credit cards.
"I'M SURPRISED how naive many
students are when they use credit," she

said. "They are not aware that they pay
for the use of a credit card."
But students do not pose a tremen-
dous credit risk, and the special credit
plans available for students and recent
graduates are not limited to stores and
credit cards.
The Ford Motor Company recently
announced a two-part purchase plan for
graduating seniors who want to buy a
car. The new plan, which runs through
July 31, includes a pre-approved credit
and a $400 certificate which can be used
as a down payment or asa rebate.
ACCORDING TO Mark Hewitt of
Community Ford, a student must meet
the following qualifications to be
eligible:
" Verifiable employment which will
pay for the car and ordinary living ex-
penses;
" prove that they will receive at least a
bachelor's degree; and
" be in good standing if they have a
credit record.
Carolyn Burke, public affairs
manager for Ford Motor Credit Com-
pany, said students are "desirable con-
sumers" because they will probably get
good jobs after graduation and usually
do not have the burdens of children or
house payments.
"They are just beginning in careers
and will probably continue to go up-
ward in income," said Burke. Ford has
offered some credit to students for over
ten years, Burke said, and the most
recent plan was announced last week.
Contrary to Ford and the department
stores, officials at local banks said
students and recent graduates do not
receive preferential treatment as
potential loan candidates. Applicants
for bank loans must have stable em-
ployment, a good credit history and lit-
tle or no debt load, they said.,
