"There is absolutely no one other than the CPS 410 classes that will be forced to take incompletes." John Hansen. Computer Science Department chairman, said. "CPS 410: Software design and development" requires a 4.000- to 10.000-line program which is 50 percent of the student's grade. Hansen said. "We're through half of our demonstrations so hopefully we won't have to give any incompletes." Charles Sigwart. 410 instructor, said. "We don't know anything for sure. All of the programs require extensive use of the computer to manipulate texts and demonstrate how the program works." He added there is no way the project can be completed without the u se of a computer. "I hope I don't have to give any incompletes." Sigwart. associate professor of computer science, said.

SMITH UFE Staff Writer While the methodology for computing minority hiring goals for the University was approved last fall after review by a federal agency.it will take until sometimethis summer to update University hiring goals. Cami Zawacki. affirmative action officer, said. Currently, the University is "limping along" on hiring goals based on 1970 census information, and new goals based on 1980 census data will not beset until this summer, she said. Hiring goals are set for each department by checking census data to determine the number of women and racial minorities available in each field. Zawacki said. The goals, which are adjusted to take University factors such as growth and turnover into consideration, are used as guidelines for hiring women and racial minorities at CMU. she said.

A walkway behind the Towers was a suitable tanning location for one group of sun seekers. Parties may mean lawsuits byRHODAMIEL UFE Staff Wrttar With the end of April showers come all-campus parties. With campus parties come the risk of being sued. A person hosting a party can be sued if he knowingly serves alcohol to a minor and that minor is either hurt or hurts someone else as a result of his having consumed alcohol, Daniel lacco. a Mount Pleasant attorney, said. If a host does not check identification to determine if a party-goer is a minor, he still has responsibility and liability for any resulting injuries because he did not take due care to ensure the person drinking was not a minor, said lacco. who specializes in personal injury suits. The liability of a party host is based on a Michigan statute which states furnishing of alcohol to minors is illegal, he said. In March of 1983. the Michigan Court of Appeals decided the host is liable if a person injured as a result of drinking by a minor chooses to sue. "That's why it's critical that the host have some kind of homeowner's insurance." he said. A home insurance policy usually will protect the host from having to pay for all of the settlement if he loses the case. It also will pay for legal costs. If. in the case of students, the host does not have an insurance policy for the party site, attorneys for the person injured can focus against the parents. "A lot of people don't know- that. " lacco said. "We would sue the students and if not the students, then the parents or rather the parent's insurance policy. Mom and Dad aren't too happy about that." An attorney for the plaintiff can take a different road to gain settlement money if he »See "Parties" — page 12 Keilitz will be next CMU athletic director w ft .'n ■~M CMU head baseball coach Dave Keilitz (left), is congratulated by President Harold Abel Thursday after being named as the replacement for retirine Athletic Director Ted Kjolhede. byMIKEMATTSON LIFE Sports Editor When Dave Keilitz was a student and All-American baseball player at Central in 1964. he roamed the college athletic setting while Dan Rose served as Central's athletic director.
