'U' students pose for
Playboy's 'Big 1O'issue

I

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports

(Continuedfrom Page 1)
because "lots of times it's an ego trip."
He added "they've got t'o have a brain;
otherwise, they have no right to be (in
college)."
Paul Engleman, a publicity manager
for Playboy, said "I think the
motivations are as different as the
women themselves," adding
that many women use the opportunity
as a springboard for a modeling or
acting career. "I see very few Ph.D.
candidates coming out to do it," he
said.
Engleman said the magazine met
surprisingly little opposition from
women's groups fighting exploitation of
women. "Madison (Wis.) and Ann
Arbor would be the places I'd expect to
see organized protests," he said, but
there were no significant
demonstrations at either campus.
Organized protest at all the campuses
he visited was minimal, Engleman
said.
CHAN SAID some women's groups
may have refrained from staging
demonstrations against the pictorial
because of the added publicity it would
have given the magazine.
It usually backfires on them, really,"
Chan said. "It doesn't help them a bit"
Neither Beck nor Bazzy could be
reached for comment, and Beck's

mother said Playboy had told the
models not to speak to the media.
BECK, AN LSA senior, and Bazzy, a
film major, were among hundreds of
students to try out for the pictorial last
April. Chan took a photo of each of the
prospective models and asked whether
they would be willing to pose nude,
semi-nude, or clothed.
Models were paid $300 for posing
nude, $150 for posing semi-nude and $75
for posing clothed.
"I try to find a good happy medium"
when interviewing prospective models,
Chan said. Most of the blondes who
come in "think they've got it made," he
said, but they often lose out to brunettes
simply because Chan said he wants
diversity in his work.
When Chan came to Ann Arbor in
early April, several women expressed
outrage abut the photo sessions.
Sociology teaching assistant Nicki
Beisel said "Playboy is explicitly
trying to degrade women. Men get off
on it. It's a power trip."
Playboy first pictured the "Girls of
the Big Ten in 1977 and has featured
the women of a major college
conference each year since. Now the
cycle is beginning again, according to
Engleman, and the women of the
Pacific 10 conference will probably be
featured next September.

Police search for fugitive
SOMERS, Conn.-An "ex-
tremely dangerous" Tennessee
felon was being hunted by
authorities yesterday as residents of
the town where two fellow escapees
were gunned down by troopers were
warned to stay inside for safety.
With bloodhounds and helicopters,
troopers scoured Somers and neigh-
boring farmlands for Lohman Mays,
who escaped July 1 from an Orly
Tenn., medium security facility with
two colleagues who were trapped in
a high speed shootout Sunday in
which one was killed and the other
wounded.
Congress investigates
amusement rides
WASHINGTON-A teen-ager who
fell 80 feet from a thrill ride and a
man whose wife was thrown to her
death from a roller coaster called
yesterday for an end to what one of-
ficial termed "amusement ride
roulette."
James Shaughnessy, 15, of
LaSalle, Ill., described in
congressional testimony how he and
two friends were injured in a May 22
accident on "The Edge," a thrill ride
at the Great American Park in Gur-
nee, Ill.
Charles S. Macdonald, president
of the International Association of
Amusement Parks and Attractions,
said there was no need to regulate
amusement parks because the in-
dustry has done a good job policing
itself.
Budget Office predicts
"bright" economy
WASHINGTON-The Congres-
sional Budget Office issued a
generally bright forecast for the
nation's economy yesterday but
cautioned that persistent red ink in
the federal budget will keep interest
rates abnormally high.
The nonpartisan CBO foresaw
unemployment declining next year
to an average 6.7 percent and a
marked slowdown in the economic
expansion that has threatened to set
off a new round of inflation. As a
result, the economists predicted, in-
flation should remain low for at least
another 18 months.
The report forecast a budget

deficit totaling $1.26 trillion from
1984 through 1989, compared with
$1.43 trillion in the CBO estimate
made last February. But the reduc-
tion is due not to economic growth
but to the tax increase and spending
cuts approved by Congress last mon-
th, the CBO said.
Egypt asks nations to
help clean Red Sea
Egypt has asked Britain for
minesweepers to help clear the Red
Sea's busy shipping lanes where 10
ships have been damaged by
mysterious explosions, and it may
ask the United States for helicopters
to assist, officials in London and
Cairo said yesterday.
U.S. Pentagon officials have said a
squadron of the helicopters was
being readied for possible dispatch
to the region.
FAA to review whether
more controllers needed
WASHINGTON-The Federal
Aviation Administration, trying to
blunt criticism that it isn't doing
enough to reduce airway congestion
and flight delays, announced plans
yesterday for new computer equip-
ment and said it's reviewing
whether more controllers might be
needed to direct traffic.
But FAA Administrator Donald
Engen cautioned that flight delays
are not expected to ease soon in par-
ts of the country such as the Nor-
theast where the airways are
heavily traveled.
Deliberation to begin
in De Lorean case
LOS ANGELES-John De Lorean
"designed his own disgrace" by
plunging into the grimy world of
narcotics in a desperate attempt to
save his failing sports car firm, a
prosecutor told jurors yesterday.
"He saw the opportunity and he
accepted the risks," Assistant U.S.
Attorney Robert. Perry said in
beginning the first of two days of
closing arguments.
The jury is expected to begin
deliberations late today or tomorrow
after opposing lawyers take turns
summing up their cases.
Perry painted an ugly portrait of
De Lorean as a man driven by ego
and greed,

Man hurt in Diag fight

Four people were injured around 10
p.m. Sunday night in a fight at the cor-
ner of State and N. University.
According to police, hospital officials,
and witnesses, the fight began between
two men who knew each other, with one
reportedly stabbing the other in the
hand.
Witnesses said two women were also
injured in the brawl.

None of the four unidentified-people
accepted treatment from ambulance
workers at the scene, although the man
whc received a wound to his hand was
later treated and released from
University Hospital.
Police said they questioned several
people in connection with the fight but
would not say if charges had been
pressed against anyone involved.

Hepatitis victim improves

A nurse who was hospitalized after
being diagnosed as having hepatitis-B
has been upgraded from fair to good
condition, according to University
Hospitals spokesman Stephen Hause.
According to Hause, the nurse, one of
the five hospital employees to contract
the viral infection is scheduled to be
released today.
One nurse who contracted the virus
died last Tuesday. A special memorial
service for Nurse Caroline O'Donnell of
Milan is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. today

in the University's Main Hospital
chapel.
The four nurses and one doctor who
were infected all worked on the east
side of the ninth floor in the Main
Hospital. Two of the nurses and the
doctor were not hospitalized.
Officials believe the workers were in-
fected by a patient, but they have not
yet found the patient.
