Now, more than ever, the U.S. must
insist on a free press throughout the
world, according to Phil and Sarah
Power, who yesterday addressed a
group of 60 spectators in the East
Lounge of the Rackham Building.
The Powers, who spoke on "Inter-
national News: Responsibilities
And/Or Control," related the story of
the 1978 media declaration passed by
the United Nations Educational, Scien-
tific and Cultural Organization
The Powers both told how the
document - which "encourages a free
flow, and a wider and better balanced
of information" throughout the the greatest in the world - but we
- was nearly passed several haven't made it," said the University . t

We have to decide that we can play with

with the adequate equipment to deal
with these questions (of the press),"
Ms. Power admitted that prior to
aking up discussioni on the issue with
xperts, she was naive about inter-
national interests in a free press. "I've
had to get quite smart quite fast about
diplomacy," she said.

Fire dept.: Arsonist
set Bursley Hall fire
By KEVIN ROSEBOROUGH
The city fire marshal has ruled arson
as the cause of Tuesday morning's fire
at Bursley Hall, a blaze that caused an
estimated $30,000 damage.
"It was a set fire," said Fire Mar-
shall Nolan Lee. "One of the
housekeepers was in the room ten
minutes before the alarm. There was no
way that the fire could have started it-
self in that time, even with a burning
cigarette accidentally tossed into the

container in the third floor elevator
lobby of Bursley's Bartlett and
Douglas houses, was reported shortly
before 11:00 Tuesday morning.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze
shortly afterwards, but thick smoke
had billowed through the four houses on
the dormitory's west side. The entire
dorm was evacuated, and firefighters
smashed more than a dozen large win-
dows in order to ventilate the bjilding.
No injuries were reported.
"We're at the information gathering
stage right now, trying to put things
together," said Lee. "When there are
as many people around as there were,
we have to evaluate all their statements
for pertinence. Right now, we have no
idea if the fire was set by an occupant of
the dorm or an outsider. We are
keeping our minds open until all the
facts are in."
Should the person or persons respon-
sible for starting the firebe identified,
the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's
Office would decide whether or, not
criminal charges would be filed. Arson
of an occupied dwelling is a felony that
carries a maximum sentence of 20
years in prison.
"WE VIEW THE matter as very
serious," said Lee. "Outside of a
hospital or a school, there isn't a place
less dangerous for afire to be set." Lee
admitted that he would need "some
kind of a break" to find out exactly who
set the fire.
The worst damage from the fire oc-
curred in the elevator lobby where it
started. The fire and smoke extensively
damaged the floor, ceiling tiles, walls,
and four doors in the room. The fire
hose and extinguisher in the lobby were
also ruined by the blaze.
The corridor that connects the Bar-
tlett-Douglas lobby with the Hamilton
and Sanford houses was also badly
damaged by smoke from the fire. Bur-
sley maintenance workers were forced
to remove all of the ruined ceiling tiles
from that corridor.
Also, bathroom windows on all floors
of western Bursley Hall had to be
opened to dissipate the lingering odor of

brings us to additives. Occa-
sionally a neophyte will
sprinkle salt in his Busch;
others mix in tomato juice;
and a few on the radical
uncomp ed compom d fringe will even add egg.
While these manipulations
can't be prohibited (this is, after all, a free country), they are
frowned upon. Please be advised that purity is a virtue, and the
natural refreshment of Busch is best uncompromised.
T Finally, there's the issue of containers. Good taste dictates a
glass bb used. But bad planning sometimes prevents that. If you
find yourself forced to drink from the can, you should minumize
this breach of etiquette. Be formal. Simply let your little finger
stick out stiffly (see Fri. 4). Happy Mountaineering!
