Unlike campus safety officers,
the University provides no formal
training for the State Security Inc.
guards, Patrick said.
"Our supervisors discuss differ-
ent subjects with them, but there is
no formal sensitivity training,"
Sally Johnson, Asst. Director of
Personnel and chair of the Task
Force on Sexual Orientation, said
there are still plans to design a
brief sensitivity training for the
State Security officers.

Due to increased levels of do-
nated blood in the region, student
blood donations are now more
likely to augment military stocks
in the Middle East.
The Alpha Phi Omega (APO)
annual February blood drive begins
today, giving students and city res-
idents added incentive to donate
blood on campus this week.
APO, a national coed service
group, will donate the blood to the
American Red Cross of southeast-
ern Michigan. The region includes
70 hospitals, requiring 1,000 units
of blood per day.
Blood is routinely imported
from other places, but "the south-
s may go
eastern area has not had to import
blood for the last two weeks," said
Neal Fry, Red Cross Blood Repre-
sentative to the University.
"The Red Cross donation center
on Packard usually takes in 30 to
35 units per day," she added. "In
the last two weeks we've been tak-
ing in twice that."
"We require the 1,000 units per
day and anything over that is extra.
The Red Cross in this region has
shipped 200 units of blood to Op-
eration Desert Storm in the last
two weeks," Fry said.
APO chair Katie Leshock, an
LSA senior, said the increased do-
nations "enable us to better send
support to the Red Cross of opera-
tion Desert Storm in Saudi Ara-
Leshock said APO projects the
number of units collected this
week to increase only slightly over
past years because many people
have already given blood at other

number of units projected for Burs-
ley and in the League," Leshock.

"Safe Sex is now as easy as
putting on your socks," reads the
promotional material. "Play it safe.
'Wear' ever you go."
Safe Sox are the latest in a line
of AIDS education and prevention
novelties. The Midwest AIDS Pre-
vention Project (MAPP), a non-
profit community based organiza-
tion dedicated solely to AIDS pre-
vention and safer sex education,
announced the release of its
newest product this month.
Safe Sox are socks with a vel-
cro-flapped side pocket that holds
a condom, which is included with
each pair. The socks are available
in white, black or white with pink
Kevin Hileman, Program Direc-
tor for MAPP, said the organiza-
tion sold 700 pairs of socks in the
Detroit area in November and De-
cember. Each pair costs $7.
"People who bought the socks
loved them," he said. "We haven't
had any negative comments, and
some people are even giving them
away as gifts."
'People put them in
their pocket or their
wallet. A sock, I don't
Students around campus differ
in their views about the socks.
Brandon Driscoll, an Engineering
sophomore, thinks Safe Sox are a
good idea. "It's in your sock, so
it's not a place that's detectable,"
First-year student Becky Win-
ston agrees. "I wouldn't try it, but
if there are people who would, it's
a good idea," she said.
Every Tuesday in February
Wyolanda Davis, LSA senior,
thinks differently. "I don't think
people will take it seriously be-
cause you can put a condom any-
where," she said. "People put
them in their pocket or their wal-
let. A sock, I don't know about."
LSA senior Lester Spence
doesn't believe people will use
them. "Regardless of its practical-
ity, it will be like flavored con-
doms - a fad," he said.
Hileman said MAPP has de-
cided to start advertising the sock
nationally as part of its AIDS
awareness and AIDS prevention
education. He thinks the national
exposure plus a newly installed
800 number will lead to increased

The delayed dispersal policy *
would be particularly detrimental
to students, Ybarra said.
"They're actually increasing
the risk of students not being able

register," Ybarra said.

further erode the support for people
who are trying to pay for their kid's
education earning $15,000 to
$30,000 a year," Butts said.
"Obviously, that affects University
of Michigan students."
A $198.1 million reduction from
the 1991 work-study program ap-
propriation was proposed to fund
the Pell Grant increase. To counter
this reduction, the employer con-
tribution for the work-study pro-
gram was increased from 30 per-
cent to 50 percent.
This change would help stu-
dents continue to receive work-
study assistance from a program
with less funding, but at greater
cost to the employer. Some em-
ployers might be forced to employ
fewer students through the program
if they are unable to pay the extra
Other sections of the budget
proposal addressed the problem of
student loan defaults, estimated to
cost the federal government $2.7
billion in fiscal year 1991. In order
to prevent defaults, several sugges-
tions were made including:
delayed dispersal of loans for
60 days to first-year borrowers.
However, this proposal would only
affect schools with default rates of
over 30 percent.
