commander of the First Tactical
In an interview with the Asso-
ciated Press and two other news
organizations, McBroom said more
bombing runs are being aimed at
addam's troops each day. The al-
lies are able to concentrate on the
troops because they are easing up
on earlier targets, including Iraq's
nuclear and chemical facilities.
"Most of our sorties now are
geared toward attriting out the
people in Kuwait," McBroom said,
using the military euphemism for
killing. "We're taking a very
heavy toll on the troops."
McBroom, whose wing flies F-
15 escorts for allied bombers, said
the success of air attacks on Iraqi
troops had convinced him that any
plans for an allied ground assault
should be put on hold.

Gorbachev, who has called for all
fifteen republics to vote March 17

"We met in November and
early December, and things
changed after we met with the
merger between the Housing Divi-
sion and Michigan Union," said
Larry Durst, business manger for
the University Housing Office.
The Single Student Housing
Rate Study Committee originally
recommended a 5.9 percent in-
crease in housing rates - 5.6 per-
cent for inflation and .3 percent to
shift the purchase of mattresses
from the reserve budget to the op-
"The 5.6 percent rate increase
is to cover a market basket of
things... wages, raw food costs,
utilities, and telephone," Foulke
Although the committee does
not formally fix ratios between
room and board, board averages 48
percent of the rate which a student
pays and room makes up the re-
The Family Housing Rate
Study Committee originally re-
quested a five percent rate in-
crease, but due to the expansion of
the Housing Division, residents of
1,672 family housing units will pay
an average of 5.4 percent more per
year. For instance, a furnished one-
bedroom apartment at University
Terrace will increase from $375 to
$390 per month.
ing Lithuania, scheduled alterna-
tive polls. Gorbachev's decree did
not mention Estonia's vote on
March 3 or Georgia's on March 31.0
The decree as reported by Tass
did not say what measures woldd
be taken to enforce the March 17
vote. Soviet authorities could call
a vote on that date, but it would be
difficult if not impossible to carry
out republic-wide balloting without
cooperation of the local govern-
Lithuanian leaders "are taking
advantage of the aggravated so-
cial-political atmosphere in the re-
public. (Lithuania's) leadership is
trying, with the help of this poll, to
organize support for its separatist
aspirations," the decree said.
Director of Family Housing Eric
Luskin explained the discrepancy
between the two inflation estiW
mates occurred because the two
types of housing rely on different
sources of energy.
"The two committees' esti-
mates won't be exactly the same
because we have little reliance on
steam, but a high reliance on natu-
ral gas. Residence halls are highly
reliant on steam. The inflation es-
timate for gas is nine percent, bt*
for steam it is four percent. The
rates depend on the building and
the building's needs," Luskin said.
Both committees looked to
other universities for information
regarding inflation to set their
"We remain cognizant of
where we are in relation to other
schools. In. the state of Michigan*
we are one of the most expensive.
In the Big Ten we are close to the
top... Schools exchange informa-
tion on what projections they have
made in terms of the rate of infla-
tion, utilities," Foulke said.
Foulke said that during his in-
volvement with the Single Student
Housing Rate Study Committee,
housing rates have remained con-
sistent with inflation.a
"Our rate increases have stayed
extremely consistent - not in ex-
cess of the increase in the Con-
sumer Price Index... When there
have been slight variations it has
been because of an increase or de-
crease in services or programs."

"SAPAC is unique from other uni-
versities as one of the best-funded
programs. Most other programs
have workshops but no office."
SAPAC offers more than 50
workshops each semester on
women's empowerment, self-de-
fense, sexism awareness, sexual
harassment, and men's involve-
ment in rape prevention.
"We have turnouts of about 25
people per workshop that are al-
ways increasing," Steiner said.
"Our first few workshops had only
five participants at most."
The FBI estimates that rape is
the most underreported crime, with
less than ten percent of all rapes
reported. Statistics show that 90
percent of reported rapes involve
acquaintances of the victims.
In 1985, the year before;
SAPAC was established, three;
rapes were reported on campus. In
SAPAC's first year, the number
increased to 12. In 1989, 100 rapes
were reported at the University.
Since increasing education
causes more people to identify and.
report assault, there was a general
fear that the University would be
viewed as a rape hot spot, Steiner
"This type of service is costly,"
Steiner said. "It's a matter of prior-
ity. You need to ask the adminis-
tration how they decide where the
SAPAC has had no budget in-
crease since the office opened.40
