Ingram said members of public
college governing boards should be ap-

carefully screened nominees by special

Michigan's three largest universities -
the University of Michigan, Michigan
State University and Wayne State
University - are the only elected
trustees and regents in the state.
While saying that college boards
should assume "buffer roles" between
the state government and their respec-

* State job

In a late vote last night, the State Senate authorized fun-
ding for the Summer Youth Corps, an employment program
for unemployed 18 to 21-year-olds.
According to David Toombs, a staffer with the Senate
Labor Committee, the bill was "expected to pass' because it
was strongly supported by many people, including Labor
Department Director S. Martin Taylor.
The $17.9 million allocation for the second year of the Youth
Corps was expected to be voted on by the State House this
Kelly Rossman, acting administrator of the Youth Corps,
said additional funds might be added to the program if a
large number of people apply. Only 13,500 have applied so
far, she said, and registration ends Friday.
Rossman said the major stumbling block in getting
applicants is the lack of publicity. "It's not a front-page story
' so a lot of people don't know about it," she said, adding that
"it's difficult to promote a program that doesn't exist yet."
Last summer the Youth Corps provided 545 jobs locally,
said Kathryn Robinson of the Michigan Employment
Security Commission's Ann Arbor office. Only 63 ap-
plications have been received so far at the Ann Arbor office,

By LISA POWERS
The Swing for Life, a new fundraiser
for the American Cancer Society, cen-
ters around one of Ann Arbor's favorite
summer pastimes: Softball.
The event is open to men and women,
16 years or older, who play organized
league softball in Washtenaw County.
The players - collect pledges for each
time they reach base in league games
between June 17 and June 30.
"I THINK it's a great idea," said
Tom Adams, a coach whose team is in-
volved in the event. It encourages the
players to improve their personal per-
formance "and gives them incentive,
and it's for a great cause," he said.
Adams said the only members of his
team not participating are those who
will not be playing during the fun-
Adams said better publicity would
have allowed more of his players to join
the effort. "I wish they would have told
us about it a little sooner, and they
should have posted advertisements."
Both individuals and entire teams
may participate and will be eligible for
a variety of prizes based on the amount
of money raised from pledges.
PLAYERS WHO collect $25 or more
will receive a t-shirt, and those with $50
or more will get a painter's cap. With
$100 or more in donations, a player will
receive a special prize of softball
equipment donated by Wolverine Spor-
Each team which enlists 100 percent
of its registered members will have its
name entered ina drawing to award the
team prize - a free team banquet. To
register, each player must donate a
minimum of $10 to the Cancer Society.
All coaches with 100% participation
by team members will geta t-shirt, and
everyone taking part in this event will
receive a certificate of appreciation
whether they collect any pledges or not.
There's also an added bonus: All
donations are tax-deductible.
People who play in the University's
I.M. Softball Program who want to get
involved should contact Gail Stewart,
the University coordinator, at 764-3209.
Any other Ann Arbor teams should call
the American Cancer Society at 668-
So far, the event is "being very well-
received, and I'm very pleased with the
results," said Deborah Bailey, the Ann
Arbor representative for the Cancer
Society. From the feedback she's
